WASHINGTON conservative R (AP) Led by pror ed by a narrow margin Thursday to 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, are fed up to here seems their children hauled past . neiihtcrhstrei- schools. th s as far away as 15 miles." 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. ' Shortly after Morgan spoke, the Senate voted 45-33 to reject a GOP effort to table the amendment. A Helms ally, Sen. Strom unsuccessful move to table the Ths id, R-S.C, had made the Sen. Lowell Wcicker, R-Conn., led the unsuccessful effort to keep busing alive as a remedy for racid inebelar.ee in the public schools. II; said it would be unconstitutional to bar government lawyers from going to court to impose mandatory busing if there was no other alternative to achieve Veicker said busing may be unpopular. But he said the Senate "is not supposed to be a body of polltakcrs. It's supposed to exercise leadership. I'm . not speaking for busing. I'm speaking for individual rights, for . equality of opportunity." Helms and Thurmond, another leader of the anti-busing forces, said last week's landslide victory of Ronald Reagan was a sign that Americans opposed forced busing for racial ce. lohe-In still planned I'M o VUo 11 1 i o TV e S3 die m ae oi m m e iDe: t Cy MELODEE ALVES SJaff Writer " The North Carolina Yippies were recently denied a noise permit to have amplified music at their marijuana Smoke-In Sunday in the Pit, but one of the group's organizers, John Gangs, says not having the permit won't stop their plans.

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 The plane crashed two to five miles short 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 reniagon spoKe: in Washington. Ha said an ini 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 fields. The war has cut off oil production in Iran and Iraq and the fighting threatens the Strait of Hcrmuz, through which sail tankers CoimciiFs VObQ iL lit) -it lit lit'. 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 supplies for the rapid deployment exercise, and that's why there were so few on board." carrying ' Military police surrounding the site told reporters and photographers they had orders to shoot anyone approaching the area. nftn 77 r rpto TP sffi"fisn) to By LEE DUNDAR SlaffWdler 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 Foundation. 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.

"Parts of the economy do well under the type of Carey said.- "But the poor and middle class economies, especially blacks, don't, unfortunately, do so well." Addressing a few of the programs that would suffer, Carey said scholarship programs would fall by th; wayside and basic grants no longer would be so easy to get. money must come from somev promises of a balanced budget," Carey said. "Nowhere in the federal government's future plans is there room for food stamps, social services or educational programs.' The Black Caucus would have preferred Morgan to East, Carey said. Most blacks talked to, however, were satisfied enough with the results of the state elections. But, most were dissatisfied with Mae MeLendon, first via: chairman of the caucus, said she" thought the results cf the elections would negatively affect the progress blacks and the poor have made in the past twenty years. "The state, and Orange County in -particular affected than other states; and counties," .? 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 funds to the University v.i'1 drilt'e dovn ai less money to permanent residents cf the Chapel Hill Carrbcro area v.ho work for the University," she 0id. , She r "reed w !:h Carey that scholarship programs, food stamps, .social services and educational programs v.ould suffer, but-she strcseJ thr.t day care center funding, medical care and aid for families with dependent children also would be cut in federal budgets. "If day-core center fundj arc cut, women will have to stay ct home to take care cf their children, and then the family will have to receive additional AFDC (Aid for Families with Dependent Children)," she said.
