How docs a state dispose of a substance that may
remain hazardou s hundreds of years after its usefulness
has been exhausted? Is there a safe method for
hazardous arid low-level waste disposal?
A series of seven town meetings across the state,
sponsored by a task force appointed last year by Gov.
James B. Hunt Jr., has been set up to allow citizens to
comment on the task force's findings concerning the
problems of waste management in the state. '.
The first meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at
Athens Drive High School in Raleigh. The school is
located on Athens Drive off Advent Ferry Road, about
1 Vi miles from the intersection of Western Boulevard
and Advent Ferry Road at Mission Valley.
Hunt has said that the management of hazardous
and low-level radioactive wastes is, one of the most
important issues of the decade. North Carolina ranks
fourth in the nation in the production of low-level
wastes and 1 1th in the production of hazardous wastes.
Dr. Bernard Greenberg, chairman of the task force
and dean of the UNC School of Public Health, said the
town meetings were vital to his group's efforts.
The locations of the meetings were selected so that
anyone in the state could attend at least one of them
without having to travel a great distance from home.
"We want to encourage everyone who possibly can to
come," Greenberg said. "If we are to develop a system
for safely managing our potentially dangerous wastes,
we'll need the cooperation and involvement of almost
everyone in the state."
But Bill Curnmings, a leader of a citizen's group
questioning the efforts of the task force, said the
meetings were part of a "public relations" game.
"We have to consider the long-range effects rather
than just the immediate effects like jobs or a stronger
economy," he said. "The state is going to be faced
with an ever-increasing problem until we begin to look
at both the benefits and detriments of new industries
we're trying to get to locate plants here."
Curnmings said the task force's report was issued
only a couple of days ago. "How can the public speak
intelligently about a subject it hasn't had the
opportunity to study?" he said.
"Some of the task force members claim they don't
want to alarm the public with a lot of technical
information. Sure, some of it's technical, but it also
affects our political, social and economic future."
A carpool is being organized by the citizens group to
go to Monday's meeting. It will leave from the Looking
Glass Cafe in University Square at 5 p.m. For
additional information call 929-8621 or 957-2556.

more, Helms' position as a senior
Southern senator would become
important in the case. "Mr. Helms
would have a major role to play," he
said. ' .'
Friday said it was unfair that the
government had waited until now to
inform other states that their policies
were discriminatory. North Carolina
was first warned of being discriminatory
eight years ago.
The University pointed to the
unfairness of the system during the
proceedings, Friday said. "They had not
even written the first letter to these other
states," Friday said.
"Suffice to say I'm going to do every
thing I can to get the federal government
off the back of The University of North
Carolina ... and now is the time to do
it," Helms said.
"Look at the time and resources the
University has wasted in trying to defend
itself against the federal masters. It is
time to let Bill Friday go back to the job
of running the University."
Helms said he had passed on some
suggestions to John East who is attend

'Dr. Bell has to be confirmed, and he
is going to be asked some forthright

answers," Helms said.
Friday also said the dispute might
involve a loss of S15-S20- million in
federal funds instead of the often
quoted figure of $89 million.
The University system' receives between
$89 . and $95 million through federal
funding each year. But the government
could only cut "programs that
demonstrably discriminate,' Friday
said. "The department has to justify its
action,' he said.
Former Secretary of Health, Education
and Welfare (now the Department of
Education) Joseph Califano estimated
the amount of funds which could be cut
off was between $15 and $20 million,
For the record
A story in The Daily Tar Heel Thursday
stated that the delay of the 1980 Yack
was partially due to the dispute between
Hunter Publishing Co. of Winston
Salem and '79 Yack Editor Chrisann
The ensuing late delivery of the 79
Yack cut into the budget of the '80 Yack
creating some financial problems that
initially delayed the 1980-1981 book,
said Mary Beth Searle, '80 Yack editor.
Personal sickness and holiday closing
of the Hunter plant has further delayed
the yearbook. However, Searle said
Hunter's performance has in no way
Jbeen the cause of the. current delay.
Also, a typesetting error incorrectly
stated that comprehensive profits would
be returned to the staff from Hunter on
Thursday. The correct statement is com
prehensive proofs will be returned.
UNC Black Student Movement Chair
person Mark H. Canady said for people to
continue to consider Jan. 15 as just
another day was an insult to the principles
upon which this nation was founded.
. "This nation was ' founded on the
maxim of individual rights and equality for
all mankind," he said. "Dr. King gave his
life for these ideals. For us to ignore a man
who gave his life for these ideals would be
the ultimate hypocrisy." .
Canady said the holiday would be a
memorial to King from all people.
"Most people think what he did was for
'black people, but if he were alive today he
would tell you for himself that what he did
was for all people, he said.
A formal service, a program sponsored -by
the Carolina Union, the Rally for
Justice Committee and the Hinton James,
Ehringhaus and Morrison Action commit
tees, began at 8:30 p.m. in Great Hall.
Student Body President Bob Saunders
called King a hero.
"He provided a model for us not only to
follow; but by which to be englightened,"
Saunders told a crowd of more than 600.
"When you read of incidents like the
ones in Atlanta, in Buffalo and in
Greensboro, then you know that Dn
King's work has not yet been completed,
Remarks were made also by Harold
Wallace, assistant dean for student
affairs, who received a standing ovation
after he quoted parts of a speech King
made during the 1963 march on Wash-,
Wallace spoke also of the national
attitude toward blacks, and black
"The national mood has turned mean
toward blacks," he said. "Some 13
':. years' ago" after King's deathahd "some
113 years after the proclamation of

Senate committee' recommends Ham
WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate Foreign Relations .Committee voted
15-2 Thursday to recommend Seriate confirmation of Alexander M. Haig to
be secretary of state, despite questions raised by some senators about his role
in the Watergate scandal.
Hais, one of the more controversial of President-elect Ronald Reason's
Cabinet choices, is virtually certain to be confirmed by the full Senate on
Wednesday, the day after Reagan is inaugurated.
The two committee members who voted against Haiz's nomination were
Sens. Paul S. Sarbanes, D-Md., and Paul E. Tsongas, D-Mass.
HuntpresentQ budget to aesembly
RALEIGH (AP) Gov. Jim Hunt presented legislators with a nearly $12
billion two-year budget Thursday that left them with the unpleasant choice of
finding more money for the state's highway program or firing 2,000 to 3, (XX)
The budget includes modest growth of the government over the next two
years and even includes a small cutback in the number, of state employees
outside the highway department during the first year. The cutback is erased
in the second year for a net gain of 593 state jobs.
But it projects a massive shortage of money for highway construction,
$342 million less during the next two years than was spent during the two
years ending this June 30.
Eastern cold wave continues
The governor of Massachusetts Thursday ordered schools dosed to
conserve precious fuel, while Florida orange juice producers raised their
prices to record levels almost before the ice on the citrus trees had melted.
' Across the frigid East, a cold wave that came in at Christmas had eased up,
but light snow sprinkled the icy sludge already on the ground in a wide area,
; waterways remained blocked and some cities were ninning out of heating fuel.
With most residents of Massachusetts ignoring an appeal to turn down
! their thermostats until an emergency supply of natural gas could reach the
state, Gov. Edward J. King ordered all gas-heated schools in the state to
remain closed today to help conserve the state's dwindling supplies of natural gas.
He also ordered all commercial customers of Boston Gas Co., the state's
largest gas utility, to turn down their thermostats.

Before the message arrived, John H.
Trattner, the State Department
spokesman, reported positive movement
. toward an agreement and appeared to
soften the informal deadline.
Meanwhile, an Algerian newspaper
reported prudent optimism about the
negotiations and senior Western
diplomats in Tehran met with Iran's
chief hostage negotiator. A letter from
185 U.S. congressmen urging speedy
release of the Americans was handed to
The Algerian newspaper El Moujahid
offered its glimmer of hope in a headline
over news agency reports from Tehran
and Washington on the negotiations. -The
reports made no direct reference to
Algeria's role as middle-man in the"
I "Observers in Algiers' said the reference
I in the 'closely 'controlled government
paper could be taken as a reflection of
Secretary of State Edmund S. Muskie
said, meanwhile, that he did not know if
the hostages would be released soon.
"Time is running short," he said in a
speech before a foreign policy group
The negotiations, he said, have been
shadowed by complex problems and
procedures. Also, Muskie said, the issue
of the wealth of the late Shah
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi remained
Indicating that Iran is still suspicious
of U.S. motives, Muskie said, "They
don't have much confidence in us,
Later, in a brief exchange with
reporters, Muskie indicated that
Monday the last full day of the Carter
administration might not be too late
to shift assets as part of an agreement
"It depends on the circumstances,"
The administration had informed Iran
in relaying its proposal on Jan. 2 that it
would be practically impossible to carry
out an agreement after Friday.
Trattner said Deputy Secretary off
State Warren WJ 'Christopher, who
remaind in Algiers, "is making progress
in clearing away the underbrush of
technical details that surround
agreements that are as complicated as
Trattner said no assets had been
shifted yet in anticipation of an
agreement with Iran. But he said lawyers
and bankers had been holding meetings
