Ezrahi said. Also, the Israeli army is
a powerful regional deterrent, Ezrahi
"(The Israeli Army) will spare the
U.S. from using its own army," Ezrahi
said. "It can operate through proxies."
Those against U.S. support of Israel
say it alienates Arab states and dim
inishes Arab cooperation, pushing some
into the Soviet bloc, Ezrahi said.
Political support for Israel includes
popularity in domestic American polit
ics, especially in urban areas and among
urban Jews, Ezrahi said.

When people think of public recrea
tion areas in Chapel Hill, images of blue
skies, white clouds and yellow autumn
leaves come to mind. But a greenway
a strip of land designated for public
use that may cut through several
homeowners properties now that's
a horse of a different color.
Red tape is what many Chapel Hill
residents see when they think of
greenways, and that's what they told the
Chapel Hill Town Council during a
public forum Monday night.
About 30 people attended the forum,
called to solicit residents' concerns
about a proposed greenway plan
requiring developers planning to build
near natural streams to allow for a 100
foot easement along the stream to use
for public greenways.
Lands along Bolin, Booker and
Morgan creeks, Cedar Fork, Battle and
Tanyard branches parts of which are
already developed would be desig
nated for greenways.
A professional survey would deter
mine the widths of the greenways, which
range from simple footpaths to 8-foot
stips of asphalt, according to council
As part of the proposal, the town
would adopt a Feb. 1 1 Greenways Task .
Force Final Report, identifying the
lands desired, as the town's official

forum were residents of the Morgan

West said he had heard nothing of
the forum until he read a newspaper
notice Sunday. The council should not
vote on the proposed greenways plan
until more research and interaction with
area residents could be accomplished,

Botanical Garden, said the greenways

solidarity for a threatened democracy
and identification with the Western
culture of Israel, Ezrahi said. Some
sympathize with Jewish aspirations for
a safe homeland after the Holocaust,
"Jews as victims do not warrant
support if they are victimizcrs and
suppress another minority," Ezrahi
said, citing the moral arguments against
support. Some also sympathize with the
displaced Palestinians, he said.

the collapse of Marcos' 20-year rule.
Jovita Salonga, the head of a Phi
lippine panel probing Marcos' financial
dealings, said after obtaining the
documents that there was "an unprece
dented raid on the public treasury."
Salonga, chairman of the Committee
on Good Government named by Mar
cos' successor, Corazon Aquino, also
said the documents show widespread
evidence of bribes, kickbacks "and the
plan was too vague.
"There's almost a blatant lack of
distinctiveness in regard'to the way this
has been handled, Bell said. The plan
would not allow the greenway lands to
revert back to the original owners if the
greenways were not built, he said.
"There's a big problem with consis
tancy here with what you are preparing
tonight," he said. "There needs to be
a specific indication of what the land
is to be used for. Give this matter time."
Don Francisco, a member of the
Chapel Hill Planning Board who said
he was speaking as a citizen, agreed.
"This is a means to implement a
terribly fuzzy goal," Francisco said,
adding that the council was trying to
establish a park, which state law
prohibits them from doing.
He also said the greenway concept
contradicted its goal of keeping the
greenway area as natural as possible.
"You don't preserve a habitat by having
people walk over it".
Some of the plan's proponents said
they enjoyed walking along Chapel Hill
creeks, and a greenway system would
make the experience available to
"It seems that the issue is not so much
one of taking away rights of owners,"
Chapel Hill resident Stanley Black said.
"It's striking a balance between the
rights of owners and those who enjoy
walking in these areas."
Council member David Godschalk
said residents had been enjoying all of
Chapel Hill's natural areas in the past.
But the town's growth was making these
areas more scarce, he said, so the need
for greenways was becoming more
"We have here a desirable concept
not a complete plan," Godschalk
said. "We need to address these

views Israel as a loyal, reliable ally."
Ezrahi said although the strategic,
political and moral arguments are valid,
he finds them inadequate. He added
that preventing a regional war from
escalating ; into a global war is the
important concern. He said the United
States should try to diffuse the conflict,
prevent military escalation and achieve
some measure of peace.
Recently in Israel, there has been a
rise of the Radical Right and a decline
in the peace movement, Ezrahi said. The
Radical Right maintains that Israelis
cannot trust allies because of historical
precedent, he said. The peace movement
has been unable to convince the Israeli
public that a peace process is feasible,
he added. .
"Israel participating in the peace
process is not a'bird in the hand',"
illicit relationship between Marcos, the
banks and financial institutions."
Salonga refused to release any of the
documents, noting that Philippine
lawyers are scrutinizing the papers.
These lawyers, he said, have advised
that the documents be kept secret.
The papers detail "an unprecedented
devastation of our nation's wealth,"
Salonga said. "With these documents
we may be able to ascertain the extent
of this unbelievable plunder."

OPEC considering cutting oil
production to stabilize prices
From Associated Press reports
GENEVA OPEC leaders, eager
to strike a deal that could stabilize
declining oil prices, appear ready to
cut their oil production without
insisting that their non-OPEC rivals
do the same.
The sentiment, emerging after two
days of talks among oil ministers
from the 13 member nations, pointed
to a retreat from an earlier OPEC
vow to defend its "fair share" of the

The Stena Workhorse hoisted the
500-pound, 4-by-5 foot chunk to the
surface from a depth of 650 feet, 32
miles northeast of Cape Canaveral.
Officials were not sure if the part is
from the left or right solid rocket
booster. But if it is the right booster,
it could be critical to the investigation
because it could contain the segment

gating the explosion has concentrated
on a joint between the bottom two
segments of the right booster as the
most likely source of the problem.
Launch film shows a puff of smoke ,
in the joint area on lift-off and a tongue
of flame flashing from it 58 seconds
later, 15 seconds before the blowup.
Investigators believe O-ring seals
designed to prevent hot gases from
escaping through the joint may have
been at fault.

Most students visiting Florida over
spring break did a lot of partying and
suntanning, but three UNC students put
those concerns aside briefly, and
cracked a crime ring.

Rock Hill, N.C; Stephen C. Mitchell,
a junior from Spartanburg, S.C.; and
Charles P. Shook IV, a junior and a
native of Florida, helped Fort Meyers
police apprehend two burglary suspects,
Fort Meyers Chief of Detectives Ste

The three Carolina students were
staying at Shook's Fort Meyers house
last Monday, preparing for a trip to
a nearby island to fish and wind surf
when the incident occurred, Hull said
The students were watching television
when a neighbor burst in and told them
that her house had been ransacked and
the intruders were still in the immediate
area, Hull said.
The neighbor had surprised the
trespassers in her home and asked the
students to follow them at a distance
until the police arrived, Mitchell said.
"They made no attempt to run as we
followed them in a car," Mitchell said
Tuesday. "Charles arrived and followed;

shattered cabin, which was located 100
feet below the Atlantic surface.
The Navy salvage ship USS Pre

cabin area, made its third trip into port
Monday night with cabin debris and
apparently more body parts.
The Preserver, as it did on its first
two port calls, arrived in darkness and
with lights off to prevent reporters and
photographers staked out on the port
