Two paid informants who helped arrange drug deals in an
undercover investigation here this summer were named in
Men known as Ken McCallie and Dale Cole were named in a
probable cause hearing in Orange County District Court in
Hillsborough as informants who helped undercover State
Bureau of Investigation agents arrest 17 people, including
seven UNC students, on drug charges. In a probable cause
hearing, the judge determines whether there is reason for the
case to be tried.
The arrests on Sept. 24 stemmed from a four-month
investigation that resulted in the seizure of drugs valued at
$60,000. The investigation was conducted by the SBI, the '
Chapel Hill and Carrboro police departments and the
SBI agent Bruce Black testified in court that McCallie rented
a room at St. Anthony's Hall on 207 Pittsboro St. and helped
to arrange a transaction between Black and Lee Creech, a
former UNC student who now lives in Florida. Creech was
charged with possesion with intent to sell and the sale of 9Vi
grams of cocaine to Black on June 17.
Orange County District Court Judge Stanley Peele found
probable cause for Creech to stand trail on both counts. No
trial date has been set for any of the defendants.
McCallie was paid $100 for arranging the transaction with
Creech, Black testified. McCallie received the money after the
deal was completed and after it had been determined that the
substance Black had bought was an illegal drug, Black said.
The money was paid to McCallie by Chapel Hill Police
Department Lt. Don Truelove, Black said.
McCallie was not a member of any police department nor an
SBI agent, Black testified. He was paid on a per case basis,
Black said. Black's testimony implied that McCallie had also
been paid to arrange deals on other occasions during the
Black said the investigators did not initiate the contact, but
that McCallie offered his services to the investigators.
Another man known as Dale Cole was paid to direct SBI
agent John T. Hawthorne to Chris Johnson, 19, of University
Gardens Apartments. Johnson,' who is not a University
student, was charged with possession with intent to sell and
the sale of 165 milligrams of LSD to Hawthorne on July 22.
. Hawthorne testified he bought the drugs for $160. Cole waited
in the car during the transaction, and was paid between $100
and $115 for directing Hawthorne to Johnson, Hawthorne
Judge Peele found probable cause for Johnson to stand trail
on the two charges.
Charles Edward Ellis Jr., a UNC student, was charged Sept.
24 with five counts of possession of a controlled substance
with intent to distribute and four charges of selling and
delivery. Peele found probable cause for Ellis to stand trial on
eight of the nine charges. One of the possession charges was
Jeffrey Scott Kederli of H-7 University Gardens Apartments
was charged with two counts of possession and two counts of
selling. Peele found probable cause for Kederli to stand trial
on all four counts.
Christopher William Saunders, a pipe fitter with Bieman
and Rowell Construction Co. was charged with possession
with intent to sell, the sale of LSD and with possession of
marijuana. Peele found probable cause for Saunders to stand
trial on the LSD charges and continued the hearing on the
marijuana charges until Nov. 6.
Probable cause hearings for the other suspects arrested Sept.
24 will be held Nov. 6.
BASRA, Iraq (AP) Iran said an airborne
division killed more than 1,000 Iraqi soldiers in a
series of "lightning attacks" Wednesday on the
northern end of Iraq's invasion front, the largest
death toll claimed in any battle of the war.
Tehran Radio said "brave fighters of the
airborne division" overran two Iraqi bases and
destroyed 1 1 Iraqi tanks in the Ham sector, about
250 miles northwest of the main battle area at
Abadan. Iraqi troops were reported closing a ring
around that battered oil refinery center.
Iran bombed Baghdad and other cities in Iraq for
the second consecutive day and Iraqi warplanes
attacked an oil refinery in Iran's northern city of
Tabriz, the Baghdad military command said.
Iran made a new threat to mine the Persian Gulf
and the Strait of Hormuz, through which tankers
carry 40 percent of the West's oil supplies.
There was no confirmation of Iran's victory
claim in the northern sector. Hut if true it would
indicate Iranian forces still were capable of
mounting a major counteraftack. Except for the'air

war, Iranian forces have been on the defensive since
the war began.
An Iranian attack in the north pointed to an
attempt to turn Iraq's northern flank and to relieve
pressure on Iranian forces in the south at
Khorramshahr and Abadan.
Tehran Radio, quoting the military command on .
the action, gave few details of the battle and did not
say whether the airborne units were dropped over
the battle zone or attacked on the ground.
Iraqi troops were reported advancing on Abadan,
and Iraq claimed its forces pushed to within a few
hundred yards of the last Iranian-held highway to
the oil refining center. Iran said hand-to-hand
fighting awaited the invaders and that Iraqi forces
were "in a trap with no way of escaping."
The Iranians claimed they had halted the
attempted Iraqi encirclement of Abadan, stopping
the advance of enemy forces five miles north of the

Hall audience Wednesday night this
year's presidential race is -a
"catastrophe... with the candidates
trying to see who can make the nastiest
remark, saying one thing one week and
another the next."
Barry Commoner, 63, candidate of
the Citizen's Party, spoke to an
overflow crowd for more than 90
minutes. He was frequently interrupted
by applause and shouts of
All problems now facing the country
can be traced to the fact that "the
country is not being run in the interest of
the people; it is being run in the interest
of the big corporations in order to
maximize their profits," Commoner
said. . ,
"This is a crazy way to run a
country... we think those decisions
should be made by the people.
"The two parties are beginning to
destroy our constitutional right to make
decisions ourselves," he said.
Commoner called for nationalization
of railroads, saying the United States is
the only industrialized nation without an
efficient rail system. He said rail use
would decrease manufacturing costs but
admitted much improvement would be
necessary before the railroads would be
able to handle any increase in shipping
Speaking in a rambling, professorial
manner, Commoner described several
issues he says the Citizen's Party has
addressed. Several times he stepped back
in mock horror when applauded, often
suggesting the audience should boo

Student Educational Broadcasting Inc. selected
Bill Burton Tuesday night as the station manager
for WXYC, UNC's student radio station. Peter
.Reintjes was chosen as chief engineer.
i Burton graduated from Maritime College in Fort
Skyler, N.Y., in 1975. He came to UNC to attend
graduate school in radio, television, and motion
pictures before quitting school and joining
WXYC's staff. He also worked as an announcer for
Rateigh radio station WQDIl for a year and is music .
director for WXYC. .
Reintjes works in the Research Triangle Park.
As the station manager, Burton 'will supervise
WXYC employees and act as liaison between them,
SEB, Campus Governing Council and the" public.
The chief engineer, Reintjes, will be in charge of
keeping the equipment operating and keeping the
station on the air.
Burton said he had no plans to change the
station's format though some station employees
have said the station should survey its listeners to
find out what varieties of music they wanted to
When someone says WXYC should play what the
students want to hear, they usually mean WXYC
should play what's on the charts, but there is no
proof that everyone wants to hear Top 40 music, he
said. "WXYC is not a jukebox," he added.
There is a contemporary rock music void in this
area and WXYC is filling that void with its
alternative programming, he said. "I don't want
people to think that we play an alternative to what
the students want to hear; we play an alternative to
the commercial stations," he said. Music that is
popular in New York, Chicago or Detroit may not
have reached the Chapel Hill area yet, so the
commercial stations won't risk playing them, but
WXYC can, he said.
Burton stressed that the educational aspect of the
station would become an important one under his
leadership. "I would like to train people to take
' over the jobs of station

MepcDFt on gas heat criticised
By DAVID JARHLTT
A study showing that homeowners who switch
from oil to gas heat may be passing up better
ways to cut energy costs has drawn sharp
criticism from area natural gas supporters.
The Consumer Energy Council, an
independent commission supported by consumer,
labor and senior citizen groups, released a report
recently showing that other methods of
conservation were less costly and more effective
than converting from oil to gas.
But a spokesman for the gas company that
serves the Triangle labeled the report inaccurate.
"It is possible to recover the initial (conversion)
investment in the first heating season," said
Furman Co;; ins, a spokesman for Public Service
Company of North Carolina Inc.
Nat every home will have such a short payback
period, he said, but the benefits ofoil-to-r as
conversion were more evident in larger and better
According to an American Gas Association
estimate, 3 C 3, 000 homeowners changed from oil
to gas in 1978 and 1979. During the period oil
prices rose more than twice as much as natural

would have a positive effect. "It's ecing to rut

lifting controls would provide the incentive for
higher profit benefits to the fas companies.

Since more natural gas than oil is domestically
refined, its price is also less subject to world
political pressures such as the war between Iran
and Iraq, Coggins said.
The Consumer Energy Council report,
however, shows four measures considered more
effective than conversion to gas for homeowners
heating with oil. Prices are taken from surveys in
six major American cities; savings are figured
over a 20-ycar period.
The council recommends the installation of:
weatherstripping around doors and
windows, which costs about $100. This measure
will reduce energy use 7 percent at a savings of
an improved retention head burner, which
costs about $340. This kind of burnerJ.T.provcs

by up to 16 percent at a savins of more than

Adding (S0 in insulation can result in a 20

an automatic vent damper, which costs about
$325. The damper seals off the furnace when the
burner is not firm?, eliminating the draft up the
chimney flue. This would reduce energy use by 8
