Henry Atkins, a Greensboro chaplain
who lived in Honduras with El Salvadoran
refugees last year, denounced the Reagan
administration's support of the current
junta in El Salvador as "defending fas
cism in Central America," Sunday, in a
speech before about 75 people at the
Community Church of Chapel Hill.
Atkins said the United States' "deca
dent, neurotic" policy toward Central
America is "insulting (to the inhabitants)
because it pretends they aren't capable of
thinking for themselves." The current
junta could not exist for very long with
out United States support, Atkins said.
"We must say Salvadorans have a right
to determine their own destiny," he add
ed. Not only is United States policy re
pressing the wishes of the El Salvadoran
people, but also the church, Atkins said.
Atkins said in many places in El Sal
vador, the church is the most feared or
ganization of the junta, "not because
they are teaching Marxism but because
they have poor people reflecting on the
scripture." The most feared and repressed
leaders in El Salvador are those who
travel across the country teaching the
scripture, he said. "The war which our
nation supports against the people of El
Salvador is in many ways (also) a war
against the church."
Dorm lotteries to start
By KIM WOOD
It's lottery time again. Within the next
week, on-campus students will find out
whether they have a place to live in
University housing next year.
The selection process begins at 10 a.m.
Tuesday with the preliminary drawing in
the Housing Contracts Office in Can
Building. To be eligible, students must
have submitted their housing contracts to
the Housing Office by Feb. 12.
The preliminary drawing gives on
campus students a chance to transfer
from their present residence halls to dif
ferent ones next year. There are about
250 spaces available through this draw
ing, with 1,007 students participating,
housing official Jan Bakewell said Fri
day. The drawing will be a random one,
Marchers protest Reagan policy
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) About 500 protesters and marchers heard several
ministers brand President Reagan a racist and sang "We Shall Overcome" Sunday
in a rally organizers said marked a resurgence in black church activism.
"You can talk about Ronald Reagan all you want to," said the Rev. Leon White,
director of the United Church of Christ Commission for Racial Justice. "But there
is a God in heaven who will bring judgment down on those who don't know how to
love one another."
The "Crusade for Justice and Peace" rally culminated a three-day, 50-mile
march from Goldsboro organized by White. The march began with about 25 people
and' rolled into Raleigh with about 200 chanting, "Reagan, Reagan, he's no good,
send him back to Hollywood."
Goldsboro is the home of Goldsboro Christian Schools, one of two schools af
fected by Reagan's decision to let segregated religious schools remain tax-exempt.
The other is Bob Jones University, in Greenville, S.C. ir
Polish premier to meet with Soviets
MOSCOW' (AP) Polish premier Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski will visit Moscow
early next month, the Soviet news agency Tass said Sunday. It will be his first
meeting with top Soviet leaders since he declared martial law in December.
Western diplomats in Moscow said a wide range of political questions and
economic matters probably will be discussed during Jaruzelski's meetings with
Soviet President Leonid I. Brezhnev and other high Kremlin officials.
How to achieve political stability in Poland on terms favorable to the Soviets and
how to rebuild the Polish Communist Party so it can resume its leading role in
Polish society are expected to be the primary topics.
Chinese leader will resign post
PEKING (AP) China's top political figure Deng Xiaoping will resign as vice
chairman of the Communist Party later this year to make room for younger leaders,
Chinese sources said Sunday.
Party Chairman Hu Yaobang disclosed the 77-year-old Deng's decision last
month in a speech to leaders of the Communist Youth League, league sources said.
They said Deng is expected to lead a central committee advisory group after turn
ing in his resignation at the 12th Communist Party Congress. The date for the con
gress has not been announced.
Deng's overriding goal was to streamline the central bureaucracy, which has
more than 1 ,000 ministers and vice ministers, to make the government more effi
cient and end the system of lifetime tenure. i
Atkins said it was ironic, that the
Reagan administration which has prid
ed itself on budget cutting has poured
so much money into El Salvador. "At a
time when school children are being told
to eat ketchup as a vegetable, we're talk
ing about giving $800 million to support
one of the most brutal regimes in Latin
America," he said.
Atkins said it was essential that Ameri
cans become both more informed and
vocal about involvement in El Salvador.
The only reason why Reagan has not sent
American troops to El Salvador is be
cause the current policy has already
created such an outcry, Atkins said.
"We must cut through and stop al
lowing (Reagan's) mentality to lead us to
wards another Vietnam War," Atkins
said. "We as a people must not allow that
Atkins said while living with the ref
ugees one week last December at the re
quest of the International Council of
Churches, he was told government troops
usually did not venture into the camp and
kill refugees when foreigners were pre
sent. Atkins' speech was sponsored by the

The selection of Bill Kimball as Student Attorney
General and appointments to five cabinet positions were
announced by Student Body President Mike
Vandenbergh Sunday night.
Kimball, a junior English and history major from
Statesviile, was chosen because of his "willingness to
promote the honor system and a sincere desire to see the
judicial branch of Student Government effectively open
ed to aUstudents," Vandenbergh said.

Forty adults and students, 10 children
and a dog marched through the UNC
campus Sunday evening waving posters
and chanting "No draft, no war, U.S.
out of El Salvador."
The peaceful march, which began at
the Community Church on Purefoy Road
and progressed to the front of the post
office on Franklin Street, was part of a
program that began with a speech by the
Rev. Henry Atkins, sponsored by local
political groups. Atkins did not march
with the group. .
"We're probably supporting the most
barbaric regime in the world," said mar
cher Jeff Boyer, an anthropology instruc
tor at Duke Univeristy and a graduate
student at UNC.
Boyer said he visited El Salvador when
he was a Peace Corps volunteer in the
neighboring country of Honduras during
the 1960s. He returned to El Salvador two

Council of Governments have predicted
that more than 50,000 people will reside
in Chapel Hill by 1990 and 60,000 by the
turn of the century.
The population increases are due to
three factors that will continue to in-
fluence this growth in the future, said
A.C. Robbins, local realtor and president
of the N.C. Board of Realtors.
"The biggest influence has been the
growth of the Research Triangle Park and
the continuing increase in the number of
facilities like IBM, Union Carbide and
the new G.E. microelectonics center," he
said. "Their people more into the area
Scheper-Hughes was also in the Peace
Corps in the 1960s, working with Central
American peasants in Brazil; she said she
was concerned about the situation in El
Salvador. "I want to teach my three
children basic human values," she added.
As the group marched by Morrison
Residence Hall, students gathered on the
balcony to watch. "Come join us," mar
chers shouted, and began to chant,
"Come with us, come with us, don't ride
on Reagan's bus." Although the march
drew many curious looks and some clap
ping, no one joined the group.
Claudia Werman, one of a few
students marching said she was disap
pointed that more students were not in
terested in El Salvador. "We're going
through campus because we want to get
other people involved," she said.
"Hopefully this will do something."
"Students are apathetic because they
fear they don't have any control of the
situation. We're making people's heads
turn," she added, as a number of
students in Lewis Residence hall leaned
out of an open window and shouted at
the protesters and a passing car blew its
horn several times.

Bill Foster was keenly aware of how the

Instead of overplaying, Clemson chose
to foul and rely on poor UNC free throw

and many decide that Chapel Hill is the
best place around to live."
The continued growth of the University
has been another major factor in Chapel
Hill's rapid growth, Robbins said. In 20
years, student enrollment has risen 268
percent, while University-related facilities
like Memorial Hospital have experienced
"The third reason (for growth) is that
more and more retired people are moving
to Chapel Hill these days," Robbins said.
"There has been a tremendous increase
over the last three or four years of people
migrating to Chapel Hill from the North
ern states. They like this area because
there is a milder climate, yet there are
four distinctive seasons. Chapel Hill has
been written up in several national publi
cations (including the Wall Street Jour
nal) as a great place to retire."
One planning report has estimated that
there will be at least 10,000 retirees living
in Chapel Hill within the next 20 years.
The first major retirement complex,
Carol Woods, opened in Chapel Hill two
years ago and has already sold units to
nearly 3,500 residents.

"In terms of manpower, this program will be the
largest in the cabinet with possibly as many as 200
liaisons positions available, he said.
Darryl Thompson, a junior from Fayetteville, was
named to head the Academic Advising committee.
Thompson was instrumental in the development of the
N.C. Fellows advising program, Vandenbergh said.
Beverly Schultz, a junior from Winston-Salem, was
named to direct the Scholarships, Aid and Student
Stores Committees, an offspring of the University Ser
vices Committee which Vandenbergh said he was
eUminating from the cabinet.
