A bomb threat on Coker Hall was
called in to University police Sunday
night and again Monday morning, a
Security Services official said Monday.
The caller told police a bomb would
go off at approximately 9:30 a.m.
Monday, said director Robert E. Sher
man. Calls were made at 4:30 p.m.
and 9. p.m. Sunday and at approxi
mately 9 a.m. Monday.
No bombs were found during the
police search. The building was not
evacuated, Sherman said.
"The decision to evacuate a
building is mine," he said. "I might
discuss it with people in the adminis
tration, but the final decision is at my
The incident was the first threat of
the year, Sherman said. Five threats
were received last year and more than
30 threats were called in two years
" ago.'. '
Although a building's evacuation is
not guaranteed for each threat receiv
ed, an investigation is made for each
case, Sherman said.
"The main thing is to first protect
life," he said. "But we also have to
go into it with an understanding of
why everyone is here. If we continued
to evacuate buildings and disrupting
classes we would be remiss in our
"Within the department, we look at
every call with the possibility that the
threat is real," Sherman said.
Among the steps taken in an investi
gation are determining the motive
behind the call, what was scheduled
for the building at the time of the
threat and how the call was phrased.
"Any threat of that nature we'll in
vestigate trying to determine who was
responsible," Sherman said. "We may
even request telephone taps to help in
In this incident, the only reason the
caller gave for the threat was "student
apathy," Sherman said.
"For the most part, in schools the
calls have something to do with what
papers are due and what exams are to
be taken," he said.
A deterrent to such threats is the
scheduling of alternate sites for ex
ams, he said. The sites would be an
nounced if an evacuation is necessary.
"Very rarely do you see people ac
tually out to injure people," Sherman
A person making such a threat could
receive a maximum fine of $500 and a
jail term of six months, he said.

Friendsh -Force offers oppoiliimties

With the efforts of two Chapel Hill residents, local citizens
will soon be able to enjoy the experience of a foreign exchange
trip. r- . '
Like other large universities, UNC provides many opportuni
ties for students and faculty to participate in various foreign ex- '
change programs. But some private citizens have complained of
a lack of such opportunity, leading to the creation of a Chapel
Hill chapter of the Frieridship Force International.
Wallace Kuralt and his wife Brenda, members of the Raleigh
chapter of the Friendship Force, recently began to organize a
The idea was to give Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Durham resi
dents better access to the program. ,
"I realized there are no exchange programs outside of the Uni
versity," Kuralt said. "This exchange program is for normal,
plain-old, everyday people." '
He said that many of the participants, known as ambassadors,
were working-class or retired people who wanted the chance to
make friends from other countries, something the average sight
seeing tour does not provide.
Friendship Force International, an organization dedicated to
promoting goodwill between citizens of various nations without
heavy political overtones, was conceived in 1973 by Jimmy Car
ter while he was governor of Georgia.
Chartered in 1977, the organization has grown to include such
countries as England, Brazil, Korea and Spain.
The FFI will make a breakthrough next year when it sends
about 50 of its ambassadors to the Soviet Union. That country
will not allow its citizens to return the trip, though.
The trips, which last for two weeks, place the ambassador in
the home of citizens of the host nation, preferably of a similar
background. - '
Last summer a fireman and his wife from Durham stayed
with the family of a West German fireman, Kuralt said.
Ambassadors also are obliged to arrange either for or serve as
hosts for a foreign ambassador.
Kuralt said only about 30 of the 280 ambassadors of the
Raleigh chapter's last exchange were from Durham and Chapel
Hill. One of the goals of the new chapter is to send 75 of 185
people who will make a trip next summer from this area. :
The new chapter, which held its first meeting last week, will
begin in January to interview and screen anyone interested in
participating, Kuralt said. Those chosen to become ambassadors
learn where the trip will be only two months before departure.
Kuralt said that eliminated tourists and sightseers only interested
in the trip and not the cultural and diplomatic exchange,
One local resident who has served as an ambassador is Patri
cia Poret, a staff nurse at the Student Health Services. Poret,
who went to West Berlin last summer, said the program had
much to offer someone intent on learning more about other
"It made me more informed about that part of the country,"
she said. "I gained insight into the West German people and
how they feel about life.
"It's not really a tour. It's a trip with a commitment toward
meeting new people."

It's nearly impossible to eat at a fast-food restaurant these
days without winning food, trips and unheard of amounts of
cash. Each of the four major fast-food chains located in Chapel
Hill and the Fast Break are presently promoting food contests
; These games attract business for the restaurants and excite the
"I think they're a good idea because they get interest going
and keep people, intrigued," said James Jones, manager of
Tony Moretz, assistant manager of Hardee's, said, "they
' most definitely help business. They're a challenge; they excite
people, especially around this area. I like them because they give
us a chance to give the customer something back and to show
McDonald's, the same restaurant that brought us "Build a
Big Mac" last summer, now offers us "You Deserve a Break To
day."" - tv
In order' to win this game, a player must first pick up a
McDonald's passport. The inside of the passport is like a
stamp collecting book. The object is to get free stamps with each
visit to McDonald's and match them with the stamps inside the
passport to win prizes. 1, r
Prizes include food (french fries, Egg McMuffins and Big
Macs), money from $1 to $100,000 and trips to Canada,
Australia, Europe and the Orient. The grand prize is $300,000
or a trip around the world.
x Hardee's is promoting their home-made biscuits with a game
called "Made from Scratch." To win this game, a contestant
must scratch the silver Jatex covering off of nine biscuits on the
game card and match any three words underneath.
Prizes include chicken sandwiches, sausage biscuits, medium
Pepsi's, french fries and money. At the bottom of the card is a
box which, when scratched, reveals a letter. To win $100 the
customer must collect the letters F-R-E-S-H. To win $1,000 the
customer must collect the letters H-O-M-E-M-A-D-E.
The Meal Card Game offered at the Fast Break is also like the
Hardee's game. Everyone in line gets a game card. The object is
to scratch off the silver covering and win food prizes.
One heart wins a 12-oz. drink; two hearts wins a drink and
french-fries; three hearts wins a drink, fries and a hamburger
"It's basically a monotony breaker," said Gary Panton, ca
tering manager and student coordinator. "Students need some
thing; it makes them look forward to supper."
Burger King's game, "21," is a mixture of blackjack and
"Made from Scratch." To win, one must scratch the silver latex
covering off of the box on the front of the card. The object is to
uncover an instant prize or to collect cards that add up to 21.
Prizes include sandwiches and money up to $250,000.
Although these games are exciting and intriguing, they have
one shortcoming: a small number of winners. All of the restau
rants reported winnings of small prizes but few have given away
any large prizes.
The chance of winning a regular order of french fries in one
visit at McDonald's is one in 18, while the chance of winning
$30,000 is one in 416,670,000. The odds of winning a Pepsi at
Hardee's is one in 9.2 and the odds of winning $1,000 is one in
Greenpeace, an organization dedicated
to ecology and protection of the environ
ment, is scheduled to present a program
concerning ocean; life and the killing of
whales at 8 p.m. in room 102 of the Caro
lina Union. Patrick Noonan, Greenpeace
director of education, is to speak, and a
film entitled Voyages to Save the Whales
is scheduled to be shown.
Gregory Kats, a senior who has been
instrumental in an effort to start a cam
pus Greenpeace chapter, spoke about the
importance of the organization and of
"This is part of an extensive educa
tional campaign to inform people about
the dangers of killing whales," Kats said.
"It's important because two-thirds of the
earth is covered by water, and because a
lot of people use the oceans."

$300 to $400 a week.
A spokesman for Raleigh Music Company,
which supplies the machines to some of the
local businesses, did not agree.
"Our most popular machine ever in its best
location in its best week did not take in even
$300," he said;
Tim Kirkpatrick, a bartender t Henderson
Street Bar, and Star Trax manager Don Pinney
discussed the effects that having alcohol avail
able has on the amount of money the machines
"Drunks spend more money than sober
people do, believe me. This place makes a for
tune on the machines," Kirkpatrick said. -'
"There has Been an increase in business with
the beer; They're (drinkers) going to spend
money and not know it," Pinney said, .
Stephenson said that he had noticed a differ
ence in the types of games men and women pre
ferred. He said the women play the less com
' plicated ones, while the men play the more ad
venturesome games. ' -"
The Oberlin Music Ensemble, the offi
cial representatives of Oberlin College and
the Oberlin Music Conservatory, will per
form at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Great
: Hall of the Carolina Union.
The Ensemble, a trio consisting of
pianist Charles Floyd, violinist Calvin
Wiersma and cellist Eugene Carr, was
formed to acquaint outside ' audiences
with the quality of student conceits at the
Oberlin Conservatory. :'
The concert will be set in an informal
atmosphere with tables and chairs around
the musicians in order to let the audience
enjoy chamber music from a different
perspective than such concerts usually
allow. The musicians will explain their
music between selections and will meet
with those interested after the perfor
mance. Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, is a
privately supported nonsectarian institu
tion with a long tradition of intellectual
freedom and social concern. The conser
vatory of Music was founded in 1865 and
was the first college-affiliated conserva
tory in American higher education. Today
the Oberlin Conservatory is one of the
nation's strongest and largest schools of
Admission to the concert Wednesday is
free. A wine and cheese setting is planned
(BYO Wine). The conceit is a presenta
tion of the Carolina Union Performing
Arts Committee. ' " .
Noonan will talk about Greenpeace's
educational purposes in confronting
ocean issues. He tours the country, speak
ing often to high school and college stu
dents about the organization.
"Greenpeace is an international organ
ization of ecologists and environmental
ists working to protect our world," Kats
said. The group is involved in preventing
the slaughter of whales.
"Whales present a kind of symbol for
the entire ecology movement," Kats said.
By confronting whale killers directly,
Greenpeace has saved hundreds of whales
from being slaughtered, he said.
About 15 UNC students are presently
involved in organizing a Greenpeace
chapter here. It would be the only cam
pus chapter in the southeast, Kats said.
Those interested in speaking personally
with Patrick Noonan are encouraged to
attend a potluck supper at 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday at 106 Carr St. in Chapel Hill.
