WASHINGTON President Rea

going to just sit still" amid mounting
threats against Americans and said he
suspects Libyan leader Moammar
Khadafy is behind surging terrorism.
At a nationally broadcast news
conference, Reagan called Khadafy the
"mad dog of the Middle East."
Reagan said his administration was
still seeking sufficient evidence to link
Khadafy to fatal bombings aboard a
TWA jetliner and in a West Berlin
, nightclub. "We're gathering evidence as
fast as we can," he said.
Earlier Wednesday Reagan told
newspaper editors he was seeking
support from U.S. allies for appropriate
action "in view of the greater threats
that are being uttered."
Vice President George Bush, talking
to sailors aboard the USS Enterprise
in the Gulf of Oman, had called the
Libyan strongman a "mad dog."
During his evening news conference,
Reagan said, "We have considerable
evidence over quite a long time that
Khadafy has been quite outspoken in
his participation and sponsoring terror
But asked whether he was ready to
announce military action in retaliation,
Reagan said: "We are not ready yet to
speak on that. Any action we might take
would be dependent on what we learn
and I can't go any further."

Changes in the Campus Y's leadership should be

The resolution was passed in February and sent to
Boulton for a response, according to Kim Reynolds, 1984

The status of Campus Y Director Zenobia Hatcher

indefinite extension of the carrier Coral
Sea's employment if Reagan decides to
order a military strike against Libya.
On the issue of possible retaliation,
Reagan said: "This is a question that
is like talking about battle plans or
something. If and when we could
specifically identify someone as respon
sible for these acts, we would respond.
So this is what we are trying to do
to find out who's responsible."
Reagan began his news conference by
reading statements urging Congress
again to approve his $100 million aid
package for Nicaraguan rebels, with no
strings attached, and prodding lawmak

raising taxes and concentrate instead on
controlling spending," he said.

Rape. Many people think it could
never affect them. Some try not to think
about it at all. But there are others -the
victims - who must think about it.
Jennifer, whose last name is withheld,
was a victim of rape when she was 17,
living in Mobile, Ala. Her assailant,
who carried a knife, shoved her into
the cab of a truck in a parking lot
outside a nightclub, where the two had
previously been dancing. The man then
raped Jennifer and was never found.
"At first you feel guilty, that it's your
fault, that you could have prevented it,"
she said. "Then you realize it's not you.
. . . Eventually you just get over it."
Counselors agree that each woman
deals with rape differently. Jennifer did
not seek help at a local crisis center,
although she said services were available
in her area. She chose to deal with
emotions about the rape on her own.
"1 just think well, it happened. Life
goes on. Or at least that's me. That's
the way 1 felt:"
Jennifer said that after being raped,
it took about six months before she
regained trust in other people. "You're
just scared of people. You're not as
open, not as friendly. . . . Every guy
that you see you think . . . would they
do something like that?"
In Chapel Hill, rape victims can find
support and information any time of
the day or night with a phone call to
the Orange County Rape Crisis Center.
The trained volunteers, or "compan
ions," who answer the crisis line will
be immediately available for help,

Branch said Wednesday that the
charges made against ARA in a student
government-sponsored report issued to
the Food Service Advisory Committee
this week were not valid.
"They can't substantiate the charges
they've made," Branch said. "IVe said
really all IVe got to say about it."
The report, "On the Need for a New
Campus Food Service," was compiled
by members of the executive and
legislative branches of student govern
ment, the Labor Support Group, the
Black Student Movement, and the '
Residence Hall Association.
The report calls for the removal of
ARA from the University because of
student opposition to the company as
measured by a referendum on the Feb.
4 ballot, and because of mistreatment

Companions may also accompany the
victim to the hospital for a physical
examination, she said, and to any court
procedures that may follow. Medical
and legal information is available and
counselors can refer the woman to other
counseling services in the community.

a professional counselor. Because she

tend to look for ways to blame them
selves for the incident. Many will say
they were out too late, drank too much,

"Depending on the situation and the

her or because he didn't do anything
