ATHENS, Greece (AP) A bomb
exploded inside a TWA jetliner bound
for Athens Wednesday, hurtling four
passengers 15,000 feet to their deaths,
officials reported. At least three of the
victims, including a baby, were
A little-known Palestinian group
claimed responsibility for the bombing,
saying it was in retaliation for "Amer
ican arrogance" in last week's U.S.
military clash with Libya.
Officials said seven people were
injured, including four Americans, on
Flight 840 from Rome to Athens. TWA
officials in New York said 121 people
were aboard, including seven crew
members. The plane landed safely 10
minutes after the blast, which left a
gaping hole in its side, officials said.
"The blast was caused by an explosive
device in a piece of luggage aboard the
plane," said Yiannis Kapsis, under
secretary for foreign affairs, in a
Panagiotiso Christopoulos, a senior
airport security official, identified the
dead as Alberto Ospina, a Colombian
born American; Demitra Stylian, 52, a
Greek; her daughter, Maria Klug, 25;
and her infant granddaughter, who was
8 or 9 months old. Stylian, whose name
was also spelled Stylianopoulu, lived
with her daughter and granddaughter
in Annapolis, Md.
Christopoulos originally said the
husband of Stylian, Andreas, and a
" child were missing, but both reports
He said three bodies were found on
an unused Greek air force landing strip
outside Argos, 30 miles south of
Corinth and about 65 miles southwest
The explosion occurred at floor level
in rows 10 or 1 1 of the passenger section,
blowing one seat out through the hole
as the jet flew at 15,000 feet, TWA
President Richard D. Pearson said in
New York. Christopoulos had said the
blast occurred in the cargo section
below the seats.
"There was a big bang and then the
man beside me was blown out along
with his seat," said Ibrahim al-Nami,
a Saudi Arabian passenger who was
among the injured. "I felt myself being
pulled out, too, and I hung on to my
wife's seat beside me."
In Washington, President Reagan
ordered an investigation into the blast,
according to his aides.
"It is highly probable that the
situation that occurred does involve
violation of United States law and so
it is appropriate that we provide
investigative resources," Attorney
General Edwin Meese III said in an
interview on the CBS Evening News.
"The president directed U.S. author
ities to cooperate in the investigation,"
White House spokesman Larry Speakes
told reporters in Santa Barbara, Calif.,
near where Reagan is vacationing.
Speakes said the president was
notified of the explosion at 6:35 a.m.
PST (9:35 EST) by Donald Fortier, an
official of the National Security
The Justice Department, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation and the Federal
Aviation Administration were assigned
to help Italian and Greek authorities
investigating the incident.

Vandalism to UNC's library books costs hundreds
of dollars each year, David Taylor of the House
Undergraduate Library said Wednesday.
Most damage in the Undergraduate Library consists
of ripped or missing pages in the bound periodicals,
Taylor said. The library staff tries to keep a complete
collection, he said, so each damaged or missing page
must be copied and then glued into place.
"It's so hard to tell (what the cost is), it's such a
labor-intensive job," Taylor said. "It's quite an art to
do that. It takes some training."
He said repairing the damaged materials probably
costs about one dollar per page. "It costs more to
replace pages than it does to buy it in the first place."
Larry Alford, assistant librarian for finance, said
vandalism was a problem throughout the library
"There are people who just tear out articles because
they don't want to photocopy them, and there are
people who cut out pictures and plates because of the
value of the reproduction," he said.
Lithographs from some 19th century books were
among those that had been cut out, he said. Alford
added he wasnt sure if there was a market for all
of the pictures that were cut out, but some people
may have wanted the pictures for themselves.
Taylor said underlining in books also was common.
"Sometimes books get so heavily underlined that
we have to discard them and replace them," Taylor,
said, though most books with underlining remain in
the library's collection.
Vandalism in the art library has increased during
the past year, said Philip Rees, the art librarian at
the Hanes Art Center.
"I would say it's a serious problem," he said. "I don't
know how it compares with other libraries."
Marking in books is a common problem, he said,
but the most damage is caused by people cutting
pictures out of the books.
Last week, William D.M. Weathersby, 35, of 318
B Patterson Place was arrested for damaging state

The Student Congress voted 15-3-2
Wednesday night to allocate $8,395
from the Student Television fee to allow
STV to purchase a video recorder and
a video switcher.
STV Production Manager Shaun
Wallace said the new equipment would
increase mobility in filming and allow
more time to cover live sporting events
The STV fee was established after
student referendums in February 1984
and February 1985 increased student
fees by 50 cents each, so that STV
received $1 from each student, Student
Congress Speaker Jaye Sitton (Dist. 11)
The money from the STV fee would
return to the general reserve fund if
unused by the organization this semes
ter, Sitton said.
The congress also passed a resolution
to oppose the University's administra
tion raising the on-campus drinking age
before state law requires it on Sept 1.
According to the resolution, intro
duced by Rules and Judiciary Commit
tee Chair Rob Friedman (Dist. 16), the
University "has decided to raise the
drinking age in campus dormitories and
on campus grounds to 21 years of age
as of August 13, . . . and the actual state
drinking age is being raised to 21 years
of age on September 1."
Friedman said students could drink
off-campus since the legal age would
still be 19, and problems could arise.
"I feel that if one student gets into
an accident while driving impaired, or
gets hit by a drunken driver, then itll
be on the adrriinistration's . head," . he
Also in the Wednesday meeting, the
congress passed an amended resolution
approving $161 for the Elections Board
to hold a special election on April 15
to fill the vacant seat left by the March
22 resignation of Bill Peaslee (Dist. 10).
Elections Board Treasurer Chris
Shearer originally asked the congress
to appropriate $206 from the general
reserve fund to finance the election.
Shearer said $155.91 of that amount
was needed to balance the deficit in
printing and publicity from the past
election. He said he would not run an
I feel that if one student
gets into an accident while
driving impaired or gets hit
by a drunken driver, then it 1
will be on the administration's
election on April 15 if he did not receive
the money, because he does not want
to spend money on another election
without all expenses from the previous
one being paid.
Student Affairs Committee Chair
David Edquist (Dist. 1) proposed an
amendment to appropriate $161 to the
Elections Board. The money would pay
its outstanding bills and allow enough
money for the Board to conduct an
election, using some materials left over
from the last election in the District 10
Granville Towers area.
The congress also approved junior
John W. Williams as student body
treasurer. Williams had officially held
the position of acting treasurer since the
third week of January.
Also, sophomore journalism major
Suzy Street was approved to the
position of Executive Secretary.
In other action:
The congress passed an amendment
to the bylaws of the Student Congress
.stating that the speaker pro tern and
the chairperson of each committee shall
be elected by the congress immediately
following the adoption of the bylaws
and the election of the speaker.
The congress passed an amendment
to the bylaws of the Student Congress
so the speaker, as an ex officio member,
. cannnot vote or count toward quorum
in committee meetings.
The congress passed an amendment
to the Student Code to provide the
chairman of the Elections Board with
all information concerning resolutions
or amendments to the constitution
within one week of their passage.

Several members of the UNC Anti
Apartheid Support Group held a rally
in the Pit Wednesday, urging a crowd
of about 100 students to get involved
with the group's protest of University
investments in companies that do
business with South Africa.
About 15 group members alternately
spoke and held signs reading "Divest
Now" and "Free Mandela," referring to
the imprisoned leader of the outlawed
African National Congress movement.
"Last semester, I didnt know what
apartheid was," group member Paul
Pickhardt said. "I think everyone here
just can't float through an education
without making a statement."
Pickhardt encouraged students to
visit the shanties built March 19 by the
group in front of the South Building
to protest apartheid by simulating the
conditions facing blacks under the
"It (getting involved) would be the
best thing to show the administration
that the students around here care about
more than getting a suntan on the
lawn," he said.
Student Body President Bryan Hassel
also urged crowd members to attend
Friday's meeting of the University
Endowment Board, which controls
University assets. The board called an
early meeting to vote on divestment, he
"I think this is important because
students demanded this meeting," he
said. "We all know about meetings,
meetings are just meetings. We must
continue to make statements . . .
(toward) the right decision."
Karl Tameler, a group member who
introduced the other speakers, said the
group was confronted a few times about
the "ugliness" of the shanties, which
group members have slept in every night
since their construction.
"Life is not that pretty," he said.
"South Africa has a lot of not-so-pretty
sights. So I feel a little dirty, or dont
get enough sleep. That's minscule . . .
compared to what's going on in South
Ahmad Golchin, a group member
from Iran, compared the shanties to the
"Berlin wall" made of chicken wire and
lumber that was built Monday by the
UNC College Republicans and Stu
dents for America to protest other
"These days, symbolism at UNC is
alive and well," he said. "On one hand,
weVe seen the shanties. ... On the other
hand, weVe seen a chicken wall, or
Berlin wall, in order to protest us.
"The shanties represent the will and
situation of the blacks (in South Africa)
and the Berlin wall represents the will
of the minority."
Golchin said the shanties of blacks
under apartheid were surrounded by
barbed wire, just as the shanties were
blocked by a wire structure from the
rest of the campus.
He said the shanties represented the
majority of students' opinions concern
ing South Africa.
"The people of this campus have
asked for divestment," Golchin said,
referring to the 5-2 approval of the
referendum on the Feb. 4 election
"When you see that what you protest
is not being carried out, that is a
struggle," he told the crowd. "We
welcome you to struggle with us."

Self-portrsli cf Leonid Lamm
By JENNIFER ESSEN
Soviet artist Leonid Lamm will lecture at Hanes Art
Center at 7:30 p.m. on his paintings, to be exhibited at
the center until Monday. The lecture, titled "The Artist
in a Soviet Prison," is free and open to the public.
In a booklet on Lamm's exhibit, New York art critic
Margarita Tupitsyn said the washes and sketches
representing Lamm's years of imprisonment are incor
porated into his later works, some making political
statements, she said.
Lamm is known for his paintings, book and poster
designs, and theories on art. He grew up in Moscow and
spent 1973-1976 in the Soviet prison, Gulag.
After completing three years of studies at the Moscow
Architectural Institute, Lamm received a Master's degree
from the Moscow Institute of Graphic Art and Printing
He moved to New York City in 1982, and has taught
at the School of Arts in Brooklyn, N. Y., illustrated books
including a Soviet edition of John Milton's "Paradise
Lost" and has shown his works at major exhibits in the
United States, Europe and Moscow.
Tupitsyn said Lamm was arrested after he threw paint
on a statue of revolutionary poet Vladimir Mayakovsky.
Lamm believed Mayakovsky had been misrepresented as
a role model for Socialist Realists, she said.
Russian specialist Steven Rosefielde, an economics
professor, is an art collector and met Lamm in the USSR.
Rosefielde said Lamm had been applying for an
immigration visa when he was arrested and sent to Gulag.
Lamm became the camp painter, making signs to
encourage the workers and painting for the concentration
camp's commandants .
Lamm, a distinguished Soviet graphic artist, belonged
to the Soviet Artist Union, Rosefielde said, "and he was
also, unofficially, a moderate."
Lamm illustrated Saltykov-Shchedrin's book, "History
of One Town," which recently has been published in the
U.S., Rosefielde said. The book is a satire on the Russian
totalitarianism of the 19th century.
"(Lamm's illustrations) are his vehicle to satire the
present regime," Rosefielde said.
Robert Rupen, a UNC history professor, said that
because of Western and domestic collectors, unofficial
art in the Soviet Union now has a market. "This gives
Soviet artists an alternative to paint what they want
they have a choice," he said.
On Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m., there will be an open
