The National Education Association,
the largest educational organization in
the United States, called for rigorous
standards for teachers and education
majors in a new publication. .
The publication, entitled An Excel
lent Teacher in Every Classroom,"
outlines four steps for the teaching
profession to follow to keep the stand
ards of profession high. "Teacher
education programs should maintain,
rigorous admission and graduation
requirements; prospective teachers
should complete a strong liberal arts
curriculum and master an academic
major before entering a teacher prep
aration program," the document states
as its first step.
The other steps were:
Teacher candidates should success
fully master the professional knowledge .
and skills taught in teacher education
and apply what they learn in progres

Cstne Creek reservoir wgnnienis regional
By ELISA TURNER
For the first time since University Lake was built
in 1932, UNC students dont have to worry about
counting their showers or conserving water.
Because of the new addition of a temporary man
made reservoir at Cane Creek, Orange County will
have an adequate supply of water to serve its 60,000
customers, according to Pat Davis, director of the
Orange County Water and Sewer Authority.
"We recently completed the impellment at Cane
Creek which supplies us with an aditional 30 million
gallons of water," said Davis. "Cane Creek should
last for two to three more years."
Before this supply is exhausted, the permanent
reservoir at Cane Creek should be completed.
"We are in the process of finishing the designs on
a larger area of Cane Creek which will have a storage
use of three billion gallons of water," Davis said.

In the aftermath of the kidnapping
and murder of UNC graduate student
Sharon Lynn Stewart, many female
students might find themselves thinking
about karate classes and self-defense.
But before signing on the dotted line,
students should know that a few hours
of self-defense training might not make
Chapel Hill Police Maj. Arnold Gold,
who has taught self-defense courses for
women, said that the "bottom line is
they have to make the decision to defend
"Someone may teach you six 4ways
to defend yourself against being
grabbed, and you may be grabbed "
tomorrow and find none of those six
ways are appropriate for the situation,"
Gold said that the self-defense tech
niques he taught were not fancy or
difficult, but took time and practice. He
added that it took months for someone
to learn self-defense.
The self-defense courses that Gold
taught dealt with hand-to-hand con
frontation instead of weapons. Gold
said that the self-defense courses taught
street fighting rather than martial arts.
Street fighting inflicts sufficient pain to
disable the attacker so the victim can

Newly credentialed teachers should

All professional teachers should be
evaluated regularly and provided with
in-service education opportunities.
The NEA document states a student
applying to a teacher education pro
gram should: maintain a 2.5 grade point
average; pass a test measuring reading,
writing and math skills; complete one
academic major; pass a test measuring
knowledge in an academic major, and
submit recommendations from teachers
and other educators.
According to NEA spokesman,
Howard Carroll, the practice of filling
ever-increasing teaching positions with
teachers with degrees outside of edu
cation and with no teacher certification
is bad for the teaching profession and
prompted the development of the
publication. Many experts are predict
ing a shortage of teachers well into the
"The NFA feels that the business of
"Construction should be completed by 1987."
Water conservation is described as being in five
stages, which go from voluntary cut-backs to water
rationing. Chapel Hill reached the third stage in 1983,
which meant restrictions on outdoor use of water.
In 1983, water level was 49 and one-half inches
below capacity, and OWASA imposed mandatory
third stage measures, which banned car and sidewalk
washing and watering gardens.
"We were heading in that same direction at the
last of July," Davis said.
"We were in the first stage of conservation this
summer," an official at OWASA said. "The water
level had dropped to 39 and three-quarter inches below
full. At this stage, the conservation measures are
strictly voluntary." ...
Davis said Hurricane' Danny added six inches of
rain over Orange County's 30-mile area, causing
escape, he said.
Gold said that a woman must decide
whether or not to defend herself, and
that it was not necessary to immediately
retaliate. He said that there was not one
perfect way to deal with attack.
"Some . talked (their way out of it)
and were successful, while some fought
and were successful," he said. Gold
stressed that many standards may apply
to the same situation.
Gold said that he did not want people
to believe that the streets were danger
ous and self-defense courses necessary.
"I don't think anybody should panic,"
he said, adding that people should let
the shock of the Stewart case wear off
. before deciding to learn self-defense. V
"You can teach people how to handle
situations, but when they're in the
situation, they have to decide how to
handle it themselves," Gold said.
Sgt. Ned Comar, crime prevention
officer for the University police, advised
women not to take a "10-minute course
Comar said that it took two semesters
of karate or judo instruction before a
person was proficient enough to match
confidence with ability.
Comar advised that if a woman was
attacked, she should yell for help.
According to Comar, 80 percent of
those who resist were successful in

Carroll said putting teachers in a
classroom without training as teachers
can be disastrous. He said it had a
demoralizing effect on teachers who
have gone through schools of
"This (teaching positions being filled
with people not certified) has a demor
alizing effect on teachers who have paid
their dues," Carroll said.
Frank Brown, dean of the School of
Education at UNC, said some people
who have not gone through teacher
education programs may be qualified
to be teachers. He said most teachers
at the high school level have degrees
in the field they teach.
"Before we recommend a person to
go into the classroom, we feel the person
is reliable and will do a decent job,"
fending off an attacker. He suggested
a person resist by swinging at the
attacker with a bookbag or hitting him
in the groin.
Comar said that if a victim felt queasy
when attacked, she should not fight the
urge to be sick, but should vomit in
the attacker's face.
Comar also advised that a woman
lie to her assailant as well as suggest
moving to a different location which
would give her time to escape or attract
He said police didn't want people to
believe a one-hour self-defense course
could enable them to successfully fight
an attacker. But Comar said that a
person had the obligation to protect
himself from deadly force by using
deadly force if he had the opportunity.
Mary Ann Chap, director of the
Orange County Rape Crisis Center, said
that awareness was the first step in
prevention. She said that people needed
to be aware that sexual assault occurred,
what the assailants' motives were and
what made victims vulnerable.
Chap said that women must know
how to be both physically and emotion
ally strong and must also develop self
confidence and assertiveness.

Brown said. Gerry House, superintend
ent of Chapel Hill-Carrboro City
Schools, said it is important to fill open
positions and in some cases it may be
correct to fill them with teachers who
are not trained in education.
"If a person is to be a teacher, they
need to be trained to work with
students," House said.
House said there are no teachers in
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools
who are not certified to teach.
"We have a top rate educational
program here," House said. "We get
good students and we train them well."
Carroll said nationwide, efforts to
improve education standards are becom
ing increasingly successful. He said
there is more public support in supp
lying money to upgrade school systems
and increase the salaries of teachers.
"People are willing to pay more taxes
to support education," Carroll said.

"In terms of water use, we see a 15 to 20 percent
increase (when students arrive). We were seriously
concerned, but now we are in an excellent situation."
The new reservoir at Cane Creek is estimated at
$13 million which Davis described as "typical cost."
"Now you couldn't build a reservoir as close to
town as University Lake. Between land costs, added
legislation and construction costs, the cost isn't so
outrageous," Davis said. "People would be paying
around $1.40 per gallon of capacity, which is normal,"

strength," Chap said, adding that
knowing self-defense was not the only
way to be prepared. She advised women
interested in self-defense to carefully
study self-defense courses to see if the
goals and objectives of the course
matched their goals and objectives.
Chap said that precautions reduced
vulnerability to attack, and that people
should rely on their intuition. They
should be aware of who could pose a
threat and should be prepared during
their daily routine for the presence of
trouble. "People are important and are
certainly worth defending," he said.
