to require busing of school
children to achieve racial balance.
The vote was 42-33.
The anti-busing amendment,
sponsored by Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C,
was added to a $9.57 billion
appropriation for the Justice
Department and other federal agencies.
It essentially supports the intent of a
House rider, previously approved by the
Senate, which bars the Justice
Department from spending money to
require sending healthy children to any
school but the one nearest their home.
"How long are we going to allow
federal bureaucrats in the Justice
Department to torment the Mule children
of America?," Helms asked. "The vast
majority of Americans, black ar.d white,

was needed because "we have had so
much hostility bred in my state and
other, states because a handful of
bureaucrats have pushed on the citizens
that which they don't want and which is
destructive to education."
When Helms finished, Sen. Robert
Morgan, D-N.C, entered the ch
saying he also disagreed with
philosophy of busing. . .
But Morgan told the senators that
Helms' amendment would only help in
North Carolina because most Southern
school systems already are under court
ordered busing plans.
"I don't think you 'can come here and
prevent the government from enforcing
the laws of the land," Morgan said.

Senate voted 45-33 to reject a GOP
effort to table the amendment.

CARIO, Egypt (AP)-Tlie fatal crash of a
U.S. military transport plane, in which 13
Americans were killed, marred Thursday's
start of operation Bright Star, the first test of
America's rapid deployment force to defend
Western oil supplies in the Middle East.
There were 1 1 men and two women aboard
the C-141, military authorities said.
A U.S. Embassy spokesman said the
plane, one of several involved in the
1,400-man military exercises, was on its final
approach to an Egyptian military airport
when it crashed into the desert dunes "in a

of the runway at Cairo West Air Ease during
a banking turn under clear night skies just
before midnight Wednesday, according to
Pentagon spokesman Maj. Gen. Jerry Curry

He said an investigation had begun but so
far the Air Force had no idea of the cause.
The plane was attached to the 62nd Airlift
Wing based at McChord Air Force Base,
near Tacoma, Wash. The joint exercises of
about 1,400 Army troops and airmen include
units from the 101st Airborne Division of
Fort Campbell, Ky. '
An Egyptian Defense Ministry spokesman
said Bright Star would continue.
Pentagon officials have stressed that the
joint Egyptian-American operation was
planned well before the outbreak of the
Persian Gulf war between Iran and Iraq.
They said the two-week exercise was to give
the Americans the desert practice they needed
to live up to the U.S. commitment to defend
the West's oil supplies from Mideast oil
The war has cut off oil production in Iran
and Iraq and the fighting threatens the Strait
of Hcrmuz, through which sail tankers
bearing much of the world's oil.
The charred debris of the giant transport
plane, which was capable of carrying 154
people, was spread over more than a half
square mile northeast of the base.
A spokesman from McChord said, "It was

The Chapel Hill Town Council's decision Monday night to
allow the construction of a hangar at Horace Williams Airport
lies caueed reactions of cer.fur-n, anger end a teneral feeling
among people cn all sides cf tl.e i:;us that the airport Issce has
not yet been resolved.
The controversy begin when the Area Health Educational
Center wanted a hangar to house five cf its twin-engine Aztec
airplanes. AHEC is a dlvidon of the University Medical
This July the University submitted a modification Of the
Town Ordinance Zoning Laws so it could receive a building
permit. Neighborhood groups and school organizations
located near the airport filed petitions against the proposals,
contending that a hangar would Increase the aviational activity
and that it would create larger safety and noise hazards.
This past Monday, council member Joe Stra'ey offered a
plan which would allow the construction of the hangar without
restricting any other activities Et the airport. The council
passed this amendment 5-4.
Very few people have said they were pleased with the
decision and the way the Town Council handled the situation.
"We don't know what position we're in," said Den Boone,
owner of Carolina Flying Services. "The meeting was totally
irrational. The Town Council wes just not prepared with facts.

To Republican Sen. Jer; HcLns charge that
freeloaders are receiving food stamps, MeLendon
sold that the Orange Counfy Deportment of Social
Services was doing a good job making sure the
people receiving food stamps were eligible.
"The Senate is thinking the same way as Helms:
cut, cut, cut," she said. "The cutting always starts
with the poor, where it's called welfare, not with the
rich, where it's called subsidy."
Because the University is in Orange County, the
consequences of the election v.iU hav-t a special
significance for the area, MeLendon said. "A cut in
