University will testify this week concerning charges that coercive tactics were
used by University officials to prohibit University employees from testifying
in the hearing. ,.
The administrative law hearing on the Department of Education's
deceleration dispute with the 16-campus UNC system could result in a
cutoff of approximately SS9 million in federal funds to the university system,
if the government wins its case. '
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) Syria Eresd Tuzzdzy to
yet another experimsnt with Arab unity this time with
the cil-rich North African ration of Libya. Seme,
.'Syrian President Hafez Assad said the result of such
a move would be the consolidation cf , Arab 'defenses
' ainst Israel.
He sent his approval cf the unity plans to Libyan
leader Cel. Mcammar Khadafy, who proposed the idea
in a speech Monday marking the 11th anniversary of
the. military 'coup-that .'toppled the monarchy and
propelled kirn to power. Sources said Khadafy- would
' come here soon to discuss the merger blueprints.
"The Syrian people and myself were d::p!y moved
by, your unity appeal," Assad told Khadafy in a
message broadcast by the state-run radio. "This unity
appeal has-struck an immediate favorable response
amongst us.'V . '. '.:' v .
"We stand together cn the path of unity," Assad
said. "And we stretch out our hand to shake yours in
order to. begin at once the work to bring about this
Damascus is the birthplace of the Arab Socialist
Daath Party which originated the Arab unity
philosophy in the 1940s. Syria has tried three
unsuccessful unity experiments with Egypt in 1933,
Libya in 1971 and Iraq in 1973.
When Assad tried to unite his Mediterranean
country with oil-rich Iraq, the attempt collapsed amid
rivalries between the two wings of the Baath Party that
rule the neighboring Arab nations.
At least three other attempts at Arab unity in the
past 25 years have ended in failure because cf rivalries
within the Arab fold.
Diplomats expressed skepticism about the Libyan
Syrian merger plan and said it would be premature to
comment before the results of the Assad-Khadafy talks
were known. Sources said the two leaders discussed the
plan in a phone call Sunday night.
Previous unity experiments have so dismayed Arabs
that newspaper columnists have said "trying to unite
the Arabs is like nailing jelly to a wall."
Arab affarti experts, who criticized the Egyptian
Syrian unity effort from 1953-61', voiced the same
misgivings about the planned merger between Libya
and Syria. .
Libya and Syria are 500 miles apart by air, they said,
and this would render military cooperation difficult
between the Soviet-equipped armed forces cf the two
countries. But Libya's oil wealth, they added, could be
a boost to Syria's efforts to upgrade its war
preparations against Israel.
In his unity appeal speech, Khadafy cautioned that if
his people failed to endorse the m::g:r plans he would
join Palestinian guerrillas and fight Israel in the
northern Israeli region cf Galil:e.
"Syria is the last Arab fortress against Israel,"
Khadafy said. "If that fortress falls, then the Arab
borders would be open to the Israelis to march on Iraq
and even reach Medina." .
Medina, where the tomb cf the Moslem Prophet
Mohammed is located, is the second holiest city in
Islam after Mecca.

iinoviis hopeful after Israeli talho
JERUSALEM (AP) U.S. special Mideast envoy Sol Linowitz, on a
mission to revive the stalled talks on Palestinian self-rule, emerged from two
days of meetings with Israeli leaders Tuesday, hopeful that progress had been
made toward a resumption of the talks.
"We agreed certain things will be done to improve the atmosphere,"
Linowitz told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Menachem Begin for
the second time in as many days. "I am hopeful we may have made some
progress toward a resumption." - ." -Vy -
Linowitz refused to give details of what was discussed, but Israeli officials
have said there will be no compromise cn the issue which caused-the
breakdown of the talks a month ago Israel's law declaring Jerusalem,
including the Arab eastern sector, its eternal, undivided capital.
Sovieto try to bribe , Afghan-tribeo-:!
NEW DELHI, India (AP) The Soviet Union is spending vast amounts of
money on bribes and private armies in its effort to secure its hold on
Afghanistan, members of the Afghan exile community here said Tuesday.
The Soviets have paid $2 million in bribes in the past five months for the
allegiance of the Paktia and Shmwan trices south of Kabul, the capital, they
said. In addition to cooperating with the Soviets, the tribesmen are supposed
to block anti-Marxist Moslem rebels from operating in territory controlled by
the Soviet-backed regime of President Babrak Karmal.
rdero for manufactured goods increase
WASHINGTON (AP) New orders for manufactured goods increased 5.7
percent in July, the first monthly rise since January and the largest jump
since December 1970, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday.
However, spending for new construction continued its decline, falling 0.9

recession apparently is over and the economy is improving.
The department also reported that the book value of manufacturers'
inventories in July increased S0.9 billion, or 0.4 percent to $244.5 billion.-

KATOWICE, Poland (AP) Silesian
coal miners and government negotiators
reached agreement to end a strike by
some 50,000 miners, leaders of a joint
strike committee announced early today.
: The miners strike had prolonged the
labor crisis that has gripped Poland since
Strike committee spokes n said the
agreement, reached after three days of
negotiations, would be signed at a
mining complex in the town of
Jastrzebie near the Czechoslavak border
The holdout miners had been assured
.they would be granted the same benefits
won by strikers in the northern port
cities Sunday, but they demanded
additional concessions including
improved safety standards.
Negotiators met with miners all day at
Jastrzebie, about 30 miles southwest of
Katowice, the center of Poland's vital
southern mining and industrial region.
In Warsaw, the Polish government
news agency said Communist Party
If ader Edward Gierek called a Politburo
meeting Tuesday to discuss the
The Katowice Communist Party -newspaper,
Trybuna Robotnicza, listed
12 Katowice area mines shut down in the
walkouts. Katowice is about 160 miles
southwest of Warsaw and has a
population of 400,000.
Warsaw Radio said a government
negotiating team headed by Deputy
Premier AJeksander Kopec was dealing
with miners at 10 coal pits, had found
their demands "acceptable in their
entirety" and was. "ready to sign an
agreement." There was no official
explanation for the delay in completing
There was no official explanation for
the delay, but a dissident source in
Katowice said Tuesday afternoon that
the issues were not completely resolved.
The afternoon Warsaw newspaper
Express Wieczorny said other plants
dependent on coal "and ' several not
' connected with the coal mines are still on
strike" in the mining region. The paper
repeated various government reports
that a final agreement was near.
Most of Poland's other strikers
returned to work Monday after pushing
the country to its worst crisis in a decade
and winning concessions unprecedented
in the Soviet bloc. Strikers, with their
power center in the Baltic port of
Gdansk, forced the communist
leadership of Edward Gierek to grant
them independent trade unions, the right
to strike and release of jailed political

University Lake, piping water form the Haw
River, piping water from Durham and piping
water from the still-to-be filled B. Everett
To no one's surprise, the Chapel Hill Town
Council Aug. 25 endorsed OWSA'S choice of
Ihe Cane Creek source primarily because
"the draft Environmental Impact Statement
indicates that water quality to be expected for
Cane Creek would be better than that to be
expected for either the Haw River or tpe B.
Everette Jordan Reservoir."
Jordan Reservoir, in Chatham County
about 20 miles south of Chapel Hill, will be
filled with the waters of the Haw and New
Hope rivers in one or two years. Hereir lies
the primary contention of the CCCA.
"They can't really test Jordan Lake until
the water is in place," says Michael T. Teer,
CCCA vice president and owner of a farm
which stands to lose 123 of its 437 acres if the
project is approved.
OWASA executive director W. Everett
Billingsly thinks his agency has proof on its

"The reason this case case up was the
ambiguities in the laws."
Cooke said he 'disagreed with -the court's'
opinion that the CGC should set the polling
hours. "That's the stated duty of the
Elections Board. They're the ones with the
power," he said.
CGC member John Allgood agreed with
the need to reform the election laws but
declined to say more until he read the
decision.'- ,";;,s ''''-'
Middleton, Cooke and Allgood are
members of the CGC Rules and Judiciary
Committee, which could be given the
responsibility of revising the elections laws.
"The students who had their paper work in
on time, or the vast majority (of them) have
their money (already)," Langston said.
He suggested that a student with
insufficient aid consult apply for food stamps
through his county department of sociaJ
services or apply to insured loan programs
like the College Foundation Inc. In addition,
the student should check part-time
employment opportunities posted on the 3rd
floor bulletin boards in Vance Hall.
National Achievement and National Merit
scholarships also have not arrived here.
"We- don't get these checks until
September, This is standard," Langston said.
"We have complained bitterly for years that
this date is at a disadvantage to our students.
They (the scholarship institutions) are unable
or unwilling to, get checks to us any sooner."
Langston said he hoped National Merit
and. National. Achievement 'scholarships .will
arrive on Sept.. 15. ,
"We're funding as best we can, but with
limited resources," Langston said. "Most
students will be adequately served," he
. "We can look at the potential for pollution

When the CCCA points out that residents
of Pittsboro have been drinking these
polluted waters for years without observed ill
effects, EllUngsIy stands firm.
"There are thousands cf chemicals whose
effects on the human body are still
unknown," he says. "The current EPA
standards are not only concerned with acute
illness but with lifetime slow injection of
minute amounts of chemicals."
Because of OWASA's firm stance on
pollutants, the Cane Creek farmers are
concerned that standards limiting farm
runoff, both organic and chemical, will be
tightened just upstream of a water supply. If
so, they say, investments for manure
collecting pools or losses from underfertilized
fodder crops could run them out of business,
a claim which OWASA has said is
In a recent policy statement included in the
EIS, OWASA says their intention is that "the
dam and reservoir not lead to the destruction
of the rural community that presently exists,
nor to the elimination of viable farming
operations nor to increased recreational
With a 50-foot lakeshore buffer zone
prohibiting piers and homes, DUllrigsly says
development is unlikely. Public access will be
provided at a single area.
Only the completion of the dam can prove
whatever other destruction the community
predicts, however. And the residents with the
most to lose are not willing to wait for the
lake to take up residence in their back yards
to find out. After this fight, OWASA, despite
its good intentions, is not goint to remove the
