No jacket required: President Reagan, flanked by men in white, spoke to a crowd of 13,000 in NC State's Reynolds Coliseum Thursday morning.

RALEIGH Aiming to help fam
ilies, spur economic growth and reduce
tax rates for all Americans, President
Reagan announced the details of his tax
overhaul Thursday, speaking to an
audience of 13,000 in N.C. State's
Reagan, in his second major appear
ance since surgery for colon cancer,
joined several North Carolina dignitar
ies on stage including Sen. Jesse Helms,
Gov. Jim Martin, Lt. Gov. Bob Jordan,
Congressmen Alex McMillan, William
Cobey, James Broyhill and UNC
President William Friday.
Reagahspoke for 24 minutes in
sweltering heat as thousands fanned
themselves. The president removed his
khaki blazer shortly after Martin
introduced him, setting the pattern for
others on the platform. Reagan also
turned around and acknowledged his
"fraternity brothers," a group of NCSU
Tau Kappa Epsilon members.
While Reagan received applause on
the inside of the coliseum, protesters
outside criticized his foreign policy.
Approximately 200 anti-apartheid
demonstrators lined outside Reynolds
along Dunn Avenue for the duration
of the speech. Campus police said the
protest went without major incident.
Reagan plans to take his tax pres
entation to several areas of the country,
hoping to win the nation's approval. He
launched the campaign Monday in
Independence, Mo., where Harry S
Truman began his political career.
The tax reform plan, Reagan said,
is designed to put more money in the
pockets of Americans and less in the
hands of Uncle Sam. Fairness is one
of the plan's essential elements, he said.
"Many of you, I'm sure, have already
had your first job which means
youVe had your first experience with
the Incredible Shrinking Paycheck,"
Reagan said. "You may have wondered
at that point whether you were working
for yourself or the government:" V
Reagan said his administration's first
25-percent, across-the-board tax rate
cut had given the country 32 consecutive
months of growth and created 8 million
"On the theory that you can't have
too much of a good thing, we're going
to cut taxes again," he said. "Our goal
is a decade of economic expansion and
10 million more jobs in the next four
years." Reagan said he would veto any
tax increase that came across his desk.
Continuing his theme of fairness,
Reagan said his plan would give relief
to suffering American families by
raising the standard deduction to $4,000
and would nearly double the personal
exemption to $2,000.
"A family of four with two wage
earners will pay no tax on the first
$12,000 of earnings," Reagan said.
The president said his plan received
a good report card during the summer
from the House Select Committee on
Children, Youth and Families, coming
out on top of several other tax plans,
"And what's especially important is
that the report card came from the
Democratically-controlled House, not
my own party," he said. "1 believe this
can be one of those great moments when
we stop being Democrats and Repub
licans and are just Americans." "
The nation's working poor, blind and
elderly citizens would also benefit from
the plan, Reagan said. Those living at
or below the poverty level would be
taken off the federal tax roles and would
pay no taxes.
Reagan asked the crowd if they
wanted a tax system which is fairer and
simpler for all Americans. He also asked
if they desired a decade of prosperity
and 10 million new jobs by 1990.
Thirdly, he asked if record growth,
record business starts and entrepreneur
ial renaissance were appealing to the
crowd to keep America first in world
competition. Finally, the president
asked if the audience wanted "America's
Tax Plan." To all four questions, the
audience responded in unison: "Yes."
Reagan said the current income tax
system has 14 brackets but under the
new plan there will be only three: 15,
25 and 35 percent.
"An earner will keep 85 cents out of
each taxable dollar up to $29,000," he
said. "From there up to $70,000 you
keep 75 cents out of each taxable dollar
earned, and above $70,000 you keep 65
cents of every dollar that you earn."
Reagan challenged the audience to
"dream big dreams," claiming there's
never been a better time to start new
r NCSU Student Body President' Jay
Everett presented Reagan with a school
basketball jersey which read on back:
"The Gipper No. 1 Tax Champ."
Reagan then looked behind him to
read two messages flashed by the
audience with cards, "N.C. State is
Behind You" and "The Pack is Glad
Following the speech, Reagan ate
lunch ,with 25 NCSU students in the
University Student Center. Shortly after
lunch, the president was flown by
helicopter to the Raleigh-Durham
Airport. His visit to Raleigh lasted
about 2V2 hours.

Despite protests from many resi
dents, installation of eight automatic
lock security doors will continue in
Avery and Teague dormitories.
Director of University Housing
Wayne Kuncl said, "I felt compelled to
proceed with that project because of
security concerns on campus."
Kuncl said he approved the decision
to begin work on the doors this summer,
although former Avery Dorm President
Robin Kaminsky had met with him last
spring to present arguments and a
signed petition stating the doors were
"As the director of housing, I have
the responsibility for the buildings and
I have to take all reasonable steps to
meet those security and safety require
ments," Kuncl said. "I was also looking
at it as a liability question."
Two doors will be placed at each side
entrance of Avery and Teague, Kuncl
1 One door will be set into the open
archway, barring entrance to the whole
dorm. The other will block off the
bottom-floor facilities such as
laundry rooms, study rooms and social
rooms once a person has entered the
The students' room keys will open
the security doors, Kuncl said, and only
residents, area directors and other
authorized persons will have keys.
He said the doors will not be
equipped with alarms and will lock
automatically after the dorms' normal
visiting hours of 10 a.m. -1 a.m. Sunday
through Thursday and 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Friday and Saturday.
Current Avery President Ray Jones
said he was still angry about the doors.
"If something's going to happen, it's
going to happen outside on Stadium
Drive or in the wooded areas," Jones
said. "And where are you going to run?
Into locked doors, now."
Jones said the Avery House Council
requested an emergency appearance by
Kuncl at a dorm budget meeting after
construction began without warning
Jones said that Kuncl had told last
year's dorm president that he would
inform residents of his decision before
installing the doors. By not doing that,
Jones said, Kuncl showed a lack of
respect for the residents.
"(Area Director L. ,D. Newman)
didn't even know the doors were going
up," he said. "If they dont even let your
area director know ... that's (pretty
Kuncl also noted the lack of com
munication between Avery and Teague
residents and the Department of
"I think the mistake that I made is
that I did not communicate to the
students last year that we were going
to proceed," Kuncl said. "It may not
have been necessary to hold this meeting
in Avery this year."
Kuncl said the question of personal
safety wasn't as pressing for all-male
Teague dorm as for co-ed Avery, but
that both dorms needed protection

RALEIGH While 13,000 lis
tened to a speech by President
Reagan Thursday in N.C. State's
Reynolds Coliseum, about 200
demonstrators combed Dunn
Avenue outside, protesting the
Reagan administration's policies
toward apartheid in South Africa
and U.S. intervention in Central
Citizens Against Apartheid was
created especially to protest Rea
gan's policies during his visit to
Raleigh, said organizer Bill Young,
a State alumnus employed in
Raleigh. The group was not out to
ridicule Reagan but wanted to
inform him of their beliefs, he said.
"We weren't out here to embarrass
the president," Young said. "That's
not what we're all about. We felt that
we, as his constituents, should let
him know where we stand."
The protest group comprised 20
to 30 Triangle groups and one group
from Winston-Salem, Young said.
Although the demonstration was
meant to be peaceful, he said words
were exchanged between people
exiting the coliseum and
"I was a little unhappy about
that," Young said. "A few confron
tations took place."
Most of the demonstrators carried
signs protesting both apartheid and
U.S. intervention in Central Amer
ica. Young said the protest was
designed to attack Reagan's policy
of constructive engagement with
South Africa and would have been
more effective if there had been only
one protest target. But Young said
he had no control over other
Some of the signs read: "Apar
theid is Racism," "Botha: Racist Not
Reformist" and "Sanctions Now." A
small group of women were chant
ing, "Free Nelson Mandela."
Mandela is an imprisoned black
South African dissident.
Lisa Levine, a Duke University
senior from Cincinnati, Ohio, was
protesting with other members of the
Duke South African Coalition.
"A lot of what Ronald Reagan
says is doublespeak," Levine said. "A
lot of people in there (Reynolds
Coliseum) don't realize that. He says
apartheid is repulsive but his actions
dont support that." '
Tom O'Connor, a UNC public
health student from Durham, was
protesting both the lack of self
determination in South Africa and
U.S. policy in Central America.
"We need a fundamental shift in
policy toward those two areas," he
said. O'Connor said people came out
of the speech waving flags . at the
"They were waving flags as if to
say, 'We're patriotic and you're not,'
he said. "We're as patriotic as they

Apartheid protesters: Reagan needs to be informed of foes' beliefs
University breaking ground ior continued construction across the campus
By LORRY WILLIAMS
A public health and environmental sciences
center, an alumni center, a security services
building and a new medical facility join the
growing list of construction projects at the
The $16.3 million public health and environ
mental sciences center will be along Pittsboro
Street, behind the Schoo . of Public Health.
Offices, research labs and classrooms for the
School of Public Health will be in the center.
The classrooms will be in a wing connecting
the center to the current public health building.
The new building is needed because the
current public health building is too small, said
S.N. Bryant, director of the campus engineering
The center was authorized several years ago
but received funding only recently, he said.
"It will double our capacity," said Michel A.
Ibrahim, dean of the School of Public Health.
"It will help us greatly."
The School of Public Health has been
scattered in 15 or more buildings in Chapel Hill
and the surrounding ' area for several years,
The 126,000-square-foot center will bring the
programs under one roof, said Gordon Ruther
ford, director of the campus planning office.
"The School of Public Health has lived in
the existing building for 25 years," he said.
During that period, the facilities have
deteriorated endangering the school's
accreditation in one instance.
"Our labs have deteriorated so badly, we're
at risk of losing our accreditation," Ibrahim said.
The labs in the new center will allow for
research on hazardous waste disposal and
contaminated air and water. !
"Well be able to help the state by doing
research in these areas," Ibrahim said, adding
that the new facility also could help attract good
faculty, students, and federal grants and
Construction on the project could begin in
spring 1986, Rutherford said. The facility
probably will be finished in about three years.
Also in the planning stages is the $7 million
alumni center. The center, which will be funded
by the Alumni Association, will be next to the
Kenan Center near the Student Activities Center.
The three-story structure will house the
Alumni Association's offices. It also will contain
meeting rooms, a faculty dining room and a
Plans to begin construction in the fall of 1986
depend on the association's success in obtaining
funds, Rutherford said.
If construction on the building begins in 1986,
it could be completed in 1989.
South Campus also will be the site for the
$800,000 security services building. The building
will house the University Police and the traffic
and parking operations.
An exact location for the 10,000-square-foot
structure has not been, established, but the
building probably will be near the residence halls
on Manning Drive, Rutherford said.
Bryant said a probable location was near
"That's going to be the main entrance to
campus," Bryant said. The South Campus area
will be a major entrance because of the Student
Activities Center, he said.
The building will be a police and information
center, Bryant said. Facilities in the new building
will be similar to those in University Police
"We plan to get a site settled and move,"
Rutherford said, adding that construction
should begin in June or July 1986.
University police operate out of three facilities:
the bottom of the YMCA building, an office
on the floor above the main offices in the YMCA
building and an office on Franklin Street. The
new security services building would consolidate
Security services have operated out of the
present building for several years and haven't
had much room for expansion, said Maj. Charles
Mauer of the University Police.
The security building will have an updated
communications system in addition to increased
"The way it (the communications system) is
now, it's been added to," he said. "But the new
facility will allow us to put a brand new one
Mauer said the new structure should be
suitable for years to come. "That's what we tried
to project when it was planned," he said.
Parking funds and other operational funds
from the campus security services will provide
the money for the building.
The $1.2 million magnetic resonance imaging
facility is under construction. The 2,000-square-foot
structure is an addition to the Swing
building near the N.C. Memorial Hospital.
Although the building is relatively small,
doctors will be able to use newer methods to
look into and through the body, Rutherford said.:
The facility will allow doctors to study disease
processes and pathological developments
through the body.
MR1 facilities are not new. Duke and other
hospitals in the state already have such facilities;
Having such a facility at the University will
enable doctors to better diagnose and treat
problems patients may encounter, said Dr.
William Huffines, associate dean of pathology.
- "It certainly enables patients to be better taken
care of," he said.
Renovations of the YMCA building, New
West and New East also are scheduled. The
exterior renovations involve replacing the plaster
on the bricks and painting.
The renovations aren't designed to alter the
look of the buildings.
"They're historic buildings," Bryant said,
adding that the renovations, which have begun,
should be completed in 1986. .
