DALLAS Federal agents believe
they foiled a pair of terrorists plots
against the GOP convention, including
a plan for an ultralight aircraft attack,
by arresting nine Iranians and Palestine
Liberation Organization supporters,
officials said Wednesday.
The alleged plots never were con
firmed, officials said, but they said that
threats had been made.
The nine were arrested before and
during last week's GOP presidential
nominating session and were all charged
with violating their immigration status,
sd Ronald Chandler, Immigration
and Naturalization Service district
The agency refused to release the
names of the nine.
"The Secret Service and or the FBI
had information on the students com
municating threats against the conven
tion and possible involvement with the
PLO," Chandler said.
"The Iranians were alleged to have
been involved in some plot involving
an ultralight aircraft," he said. "We
questioned these individuals and deter
mined they were out of their immigra
tion status either because they were
working or had overstayed their student
Federal investigators did not elabo
rate on what type of attack they thought
might be conducted with the aircraft,
most of which have tiny motors and
wings of nylon fabric, and do not
require pilots' licenses.
Nevertheless, sharpshooters were
assigned to watch the airspace around
the convention center for suspicious
aircraft, federal officials said.
Chandler said he did not have a
breakdown of how many were from
what Middle Eastern country, "but I
can tell you they were a combination
of Iranians, Jordanians and Syrians."

At the conventions, UN C students live it up
By TOM CONLON
While most UNC students caught bits
of the Republican and Democratic
national conventions this summer through
the T.V. networks, five Tar Heels got a
delegate 's-eye-view of the hoopla in San
Francisco and Dallas.
Zee Lamb, a second-year law student
from Nags Head, served as a Gary Hart
delegate alongside Hart alternate Larry
Katzin, a junior political science major
Ray Shimer, president of UNC's
College Republicans, and members David
Balmer and Mike Barnhill worked in
Dallas as pages accounting for three
of North Carolina's five pages chosen to
attend the Republican convention.

Deputy Police Chief William New

security for the Dallas police, said the
investigation focused on "a loosely
organized group of foreign nationals."
Newman said threats were made
"against the president indirectly and
against the convention and convention
related activities directly," and were
checked out thoroughly.
"Anytime you have ah event like this
you are going to have a certain amount
of threats," he said. "It's fair to say these
were taken seriously."
The Dallas Times Herald quoted
federal sources Wednesday as saying

"But ten or twenty years from now I

Lamb got a chance to enjoy the sights
of San Francisco. "I met a lot of different

things I went shopping, took a yacht
cruise with some North Carolinians and
attended a lot of receptions. Our biggest
reception (sponsored by California Assem

the night before the convention opened."

easier passage of a Student Activites Fee

The measure now goes to Student
Body President Paul Parker, who has
10 school days to take action on the
bill. Parker said last night he did not
know if he would sign or veto the bill.
Under the new ruling, last February's
referendum for a $1.50- per-semester
increase, in student fees would have
passed easily. Although more than 20
percent of the student body voted, the
measure fell 0.4 of a percentage point
short of the necessary two-thirds

Mondale should be the nominee because
he deserved it and paid his dues to the
party," he said. "I like Mondale and I will
support him in the fall, but I don't think
he can win like Gary Hart could have."
Uncommitted delegates gave Mondale
victories in New Hampshire and Ohio on
the convention floor, although Hart won
both in popular votes.
"A more positive part was being a Hart
whip and getting people to vote on his
platform issues," he said. "I was impressed
by the courage of N.C. State Sen. Bob

ernor) who, as an uncommitted delegate,
voted for the elimination of runoff

Two amendments to the bill were

The other amendment, sponsored by
Doug Berger (Dist. . I), would' have

Ryke Longest (Dist. 10) supported
the bill, but said he would prefer a
simple-majority format. He also said he
did not believe the election format was
the major issue, and that the council
should focus its efforts in other areas
"I don't see this thing as being as
complicated an issue as some other
people do," Longest said. "I believe the
reason students don't vote is inconven

ourselves with getting out more voters."

A request has been filed with the
members of the Student Activities
Center steering committee asking for a
change ' in a section of student seating
in the new Student Activity Center, said
Student Body President Paul Parker
According to a letter sent by Parker
and Carolina Athletic Association
President Jennie Edmundson, a prop
osal was made to the steering committee
to exchange a section of student seating
behind the backboard for one behind
the Carolina bench. This proposal
would add 13 lower level seats to those
already allotted to the Educational
Foundation (Rams Club) and give the
students a much better position in which
to not only see but get involved in the
action of basketball games.
Although undecided by the commit
tee, the proposal is supported by
basketball coach Dean Smith, Athletic
Director John Swofford and Chancel
lor Christopher Fordham, Parker said.
Although students are receiving a larger
number of seats in the facility than the
Educational Foundation, "they are
being asked to sacrifice quality and
number in the lower section to do so,"
according to the letter.
Right now, the administration is
"trying to get a handle on exactly how
many donor seats have been taken,"
Swofford said. The Educational Foun
dation has received more large dona
tions than originally anticipated, thus
causing an overflow of the $25,000 to
$100,000 seats into the $10,000 seats,
