Japanese businessmen are hoping the
United States will not make U.S.
markets more difficult to enter than they
already are, said John P. Evans, dean
of UNC's School 'of Business
Evans was part of a group of five
U.S. business school deans to spend two
weeks in Japan in July as a guest of
a Japanese business foundation. In an
interview Thursday he said Japanese
businessmen had a great fear of the
rising protectionism movement in the
"The reaction of Japanese business
men (to rising U.S. protectionism) is in
two parts," Evans said. "One, they hope
that we wont make our markets any
more difficult to enter than they already
are and, two, they feel that Japanese
markets are more open than Americans
. The Reagan Administration resisted
pressure from special interest groups
and rejected calls for protectionist
moves to cut the huge trade deficit with
Japan. But on Saturday President
Reagan announced that the administra
tion would take action against unfair
trade practices by Korea, Brazil and
Administration spokesmen have said
that the administration would take
unspecified action against Japanese
policies limiting the sale of U.S.
cigarettes in Japan. Japan has long
restricted the sale of American
cigarettes through price-setting and
limiting distribution in order to protect
Japanese cigarette manufacturers.
The Japanese premier Yasuhiro
Nakasone announced plans to improve
foreign access to Japanese markets
during Evans second week in Japan.
Evans said that the Japanese had a lot
to lose in losing the U.S. market, more
than the United States did in losing the
"We are an important trading partner
for them and they are an important
trading partner for us, especially in the
future," Evans said. "It is much more
important for the Japanese to keeplhe
U.S. as a trading partner."
The Japanese emphasize foreign
trade in their businesses and in training
for their businessmen because it is a
necessity for their island nation, Evans
said. He said the Japanese had to look
toward international trade to keep their
standard of living high.
Japan has almost no natural resour
ces of its own, so it is forced to
emphasize foreign trade, but the United
States does not necessarily have to look
to foreign trade to support itself,
according to Evans.
"We could (theoretically) contem
plate shutting our borders if we wanted
to," Evans said. "However, we should
expect to be engaged in a more inter
nationalized world economy."
Evans said that business schools
should include in their programs the
study of international trade. He said
students should study the environment
that business is conducted in, including
the international environment.
Evans said that business students
should not necessarily study Japan, but
that they should be exposed to different
types of foreign cultures, By studying
other cultures, U.S. businesses are

"Companies are now designating
people to study Japan and other foreign
businesses," Evans said.
Some U.S. businesses are competing
well in the Japanese market, Evans said.
He wasnt able to observe many effects
of U.S. businesses in Japan, but there
were quite a lot of U.S. fast food
franchises in Tokyo.
"We did not see many U.S. electronic
products," Evans said. "On the streets,
though, you could see a number of fast
food places originating in the U.S."
Japan ha$ come a long way in the
last "35 'years, Evans said.- The nation
has gone from being a war-torn,
occupied nation with virtually no
industry to a nation with one of the
strongest economies in the world, he
Evans said that Japan was facing an
indentity crisis. He said it had been a
country used to trying to rebuild and
strengthen its economy for the last 35
years, but it had reached a stage where
it was dominating the markets that it
was simply trying to compete in before.
"Japan has not yet sorted out its role,
what it should be as a world citizen,"
He said that the United States had
been a point of strength for the nation
during the past 35 years. The U.S.
military had protected Japan, while the
government of the United States had
supported the nation in its efforts to
expand into world markets.
The United States has made attempts
to help Third World nations stabilize
their economies and to be a good world
citizen. Evans sees the role of the
Japanese being similar within the next
"In the next generation it will be
interesting to see if Japan steps into
those roles," Evans said.

The groundwork for improving
security on campus began in a meeting
Wednesday afternoon between Dean of
Students Donald Boulton and represen
tatives of the Campus Governing"
As a result of the meeting, the CGC's
committee on campus security Friday
will begin organizing campus-watch
programs in the residence areas. The
committee also will contact the Univer
sity police about the possibility of a
campus patrol involving students.
CGC Speaker Wyatt Closs (Dist. 10)
and Jimmy Greene (Dist. 9), head of
the committee, met with Boulton to
discuss the results of a survey on security
that ran in The Daily Tar Heel last
week. They also discussed suggestions
voiced earlier by other CGC
Campus-watch programs would be
similar to neighborhood-watch pro
grams, Greene said.
A campus patrol would be similar to
patrols on N.C. State's campus, where
students carry a walkie-talkie and a
flashlight and wear a shirt identifying
them with the patrol, he said.
Boulton said a campus patrol was a
good idea, but it would have to be
coordinated through the University
police. He said he would be most
concerned that a student would try to
handle a dangerous situation himself
rather than calling the police.
He emphasized that the most effective
way for security to be improved was
for every student to take precautions.
"This is not the southern part of
heaven anymore. There are little
pockets of hell here," he said. "The less
we prepare for it, the greater the
consequences. Sometimes when you do
all you're supposed to do, it still isnt

Turlington said Hunt has offered
his support to the Democrats in the
Senate race. "He wants to do
everything he can."

school to alert students to dangers
because that's when more crime on
campus happens, he said. Because the

on the same schedule, the influx and

to predict, he added.
Several concerns about lighting were
brought up at the meeting. Greene
asked if high-pressure sodium lights
could be used in place of existing

mally had a policy to put lights only
on street corners.
