UNC system are behind schedule in their efforts to achieve
desegregation, according to a UNC report filed in late
The third annual report on desegregation, submitted to
U.S. District Court in Raleigh, showed an 8.1 percent
black-population at the 11 traditionally white schools.
The report was filed in compliance with a 1981 consent
decree between the UNC system and the U.S. Department
of Education. According to the decree, UNC must raise
overall black enrollment at the 11 traditionally white
universities to 10.6 percent by 1986.
But figures for the 1983 fall semester also show that the
five traditionally black schools are meeting desegregation
goals. According to the report, white students comprise
13.43 percent of enrollment at the black schools on
schedule with the Education Department's prescribed goal
of 15 percent by 1986.
While the white schools are behind schedule, the system

Tomorrow the first books from the
Wilson Library general collection,
which fills 50 miles of shelf space, will
be moved to the Walter, Royal Davis
Library, Larry P. Alford, chief circu
lation librarian and coordinator of the
move, said Monday.
Moving the entire general collection
will take up to eight weeks, Alford
said. Wilson Library will close
halfway through the move, on Friday,
Feb. 3; Davis Library will open Feb. 7.
The availability of funds for staff

maintain the same hours as Wilson

said Raymond Dawson, vice president for academic af
fairs for the UNC system. . ...
"All 11 are behind as a groiip,-but we are making a
good-faith effort to improve the situation," Dawson said
Tuesday. "There was a 5 percent growth in total black
enrollment this year, at a time when total enrollment rose
less than 1 percent.
' 'We had hoped to be closer to our goal at this time, but
we'll continue to work even harder during the next couple
of years," he said.
At the Chapel Hill campus, black enrollment remained
unchanged at 8.65 percent, Dawson said. When the con
sent decree agreement was first approved by U.S. District
Judge Franklin T. Dupree Jr., blacks comprised 7.78 per
cent of the Chapel Hill enrollment.
The report showed that black enrollment at traditional
ly white UNC-Greensboro has declined rather than in
creased in the past three years. "UNC-G has a problem,"
said Dawson. "We're just not sure what it is." Dawson
said the General Administration is making a continued ef
fort to correct the problem. UNC-G enrolled 1,077 blacks

Some equipment has already been

The Davis building itself is almost
complete, Jake Bryant, director of the

said. The building comes with a one

expire in August, Bryant said.
Negotiations have yet to begin on
what penalty, if any, the contractor
will pay for late completion of the

to redeem that," he said.

Sens. Jesse Helms and John East, both
Republicans, said at a news conference

to Syria may have been designed to em

Students uncertain of classes
Grade arrivals late because of exam schedule
By JIM ZOOK
According to University officials, the late final exam
schedule meant many students returning for the spring
semester were still not sure how they had done during the
Those students were not only unaware of their fall
grades, but also did not know if they had been placed in
the classes they had requested.
Brian Ellenburg, a sophomore from Rockwell, said,
"It really made me mad. I had to call home for my
grades. If I'd gotten them I wouldn't have had to come
back as early. It was really a waste of time."
"I hatod not having my schedule ahead of time," said
Karen Cotten, a junior from Reidsville. "1 didn't have
time to figure out my schedule over the weekend, and
had to sit down in Woollen to figure it out. I still don't
know my grades."

in 1980 and 986 in 1983. Thus, total enrollment dropped
from 10.37 percent in 1980 to 9.94 percent in 1983.
The lagging enrollment of white students at traditional
ly black A&T State University is a problem, but one which
can be overcome, Dawson said. A&T showed a white
enrollment of 8.98 percent in the 1983 fall semester, which
is far behind the other four black schools.
"A&T attracts many out-of-state blacks," said
Dawson. Its prestige as a black institution could be a
factor in the problem of recruiting whites, he said.
Dawson's confidence in the system has not been de
terred by the lack of progress at UNC-G and A&T. "I
think we're going to make it (by 1986) We've already
made substantial progress."
Dawson said he did not know what the federal govern
ment would do if the percentages are not reached by 1986.
"We're just taking it one step at a time. As long as we
continue to make the effort, I don't foresee a problem."

system and the Department of Education remained in the

have been Jackson's intention.

WASHINGTON President Reagan
said Tuesday the United States and China
"stand on common ground" in the quest
for peace and opposition to Soviet ex
panionism, but Premier Zhao Ziyang says
the relationship "is far below the level it
should have attained."
After welcoming Zhao to the White
House, Reagan and the highest-ranking
official in the Chinese government met
privately for a two-hour discussion that
U.S. officials said was dominated from the
start by the sensitive issue of U.S. support
A senior American official, who briefed
reporters only on the condition that he not
be identified, said Reagan "was candid
about the fact that we take seriously the
question of commitments to old friends."
"We don't walk away from com
mitments, and that's a governing aspect of
this whole problem," said, the official.
"We would be kidding ourselves if we
think that this issue was ever going to
simply disappear or that their concerns
would not be voiced."
Although the United States has
withdrawn diplomatic recognition of
Taiwan as the legitimate government of
the Chinese mainland, it has continued to
supply arms to the Nationalist-ruled island
while insisting that its future be determined
peacefully, with the participation of both
Xhina and Taiwan. ... t - ,: ,
The Chinese consider . the continuing
U.S. role in Taiwan to be" direct in
terference in their internal affairs.
Reagan nonetheless sought to stress
areas where the two leaders could agree.
Zhao, the first Chinese premier ever to
visit the United.States, said there had been
"ups and downs" in relations between
Washington and Peking and that "dif
ficulties and obstacles" still exist. .
On Zhao's arrival for three days of
talks, Reagan acknowledged that "dif
ferences between our two countries" exist,
but assured his guest that "we stand ready
to nurture, develop and build upon the
many areas of accord to strengthen the ties
"We stand on common ground in op

delighted to have Lt. Goodman home,
but I feel it's important to remember in
the case of Jesse Jackson that he histori
cally has been identified with the most
radical elements in the Middle East,"
East said. .
"He has supported Syria and the dicta
torship of Assad; he has sided with the
PLO against Israel; his wife was recently
in Nicaragua siding with the
Sandinistas," he said."So between the
two of them, their affiliation with the
Third World is with the most radical co
Marxist forces. To that extent, I think he
was used (by the Syrians) in that part.
"We're dealing with a man (Jackson)
sympathetic to radical forces, so naturally
they (Syria) pander to what he would
want and what would help him politically
the affairs of independent states," Reagan
The U.S. briefing official said Reagan
and Zhao also discussed the Soviet military
buildup in the Far East, Moscow's in
volvement in Cambodia and the Soviet oc
cupation of Afghanistan.
Later, in post-luncheon toasts at the
State Department, Secretary of State
George P. Shultz told Zhao: "We've come
a long way in this one year, Mr. Premier.
We've resumed and advanced our strategic
dialogue, which is so vital an element of
our bilateral relations." .
China has explored the possibility of
buying U.S. anti-aircraft and anti-armor
weapons systems, but a senior American
official said last week he did not expect
any major arms sales to China in the
Zhao said his talks with Reagan and
Shultz on Tuesday "showed that there are
common points as well as differences be
tween us. However, tlv important thing is

two countries had become so complex and
flourishing that problems had developed,
