WASHINGTON - The White
House on Tuesday proclaimed U.S. air
raids on Libya a success that "struck
a blow against terrorism, but the
attacks were followed by a new incident
of violence against an American the
shooting of an employee in the U.S.
embassy in Khartoum, Sudan.
The State Department said the
Khartoum embassy victim, whose
identity and occupation were not
disclosed, was hospitalized in serious
condition with a gunshot wound to the
A spokeswoman, Anita Stockman,
said U.S. officials did not know who
was responsible and no group claimed
responsiblity. National Public radio
said an administration source thought
Libya was involved.
The Sudanese foreign ministry des
cribed the U.S. attack on Libya early
Tuesday as a dangerous threat to the
region and to world peace.
President Reagan, speaking before
the Khartoum shooting, told some
businessmen the United States won a
single victory in the long battle against
terrorism and pledged to continue with
more strikes if necessary.
"We would prefer not to have to
repeat the events of last night," he told
a group of business executives. But he
said that would be up to Libyan leader
Moammar Khadafy, whom he labeled
"What is required is for Libya to end
its pursuit of terror for political goals,
said Reagan. "The choice is theirs."
Earlier, Libya apparently retaliated
by firing at a U.S. Coast Guard
installation on a tiny Mediterranean
island 175 miles off the Libyan coast.
Barely 15 hours after the bombing
of targets in and around Tripoli and
the western port city of Benghazi, Libya
announced a retaliatory strike of its own

The bombing raid on Libyan military targets will
only escalate terrorism and could lead to terrorist
attacks inside the continental United States, UNC
professors said Tuesday,
"I'm not pleased, is my immediate reaction," said
Dr. James R. Leutze, Chairman of the Curriculum
of Peace, War, and Defense. "I would have preferred
that we exhaust all non-military alternatives . . . (before
turning to military strikes).
"Military actions tend to be 'messy' . . . and a lot
of people get hurt," he said.
Leutze said that other actions should have been tried
before using military force. He mentioned using "quiet
diplomacy," further economic sanctions or a naval
blockade rather than a military offensive and desribed
the U.S. action as "offensive." .
"I'm worried that the attacks will make Khadafy
more of a hero (inside Libya)," said Dr. Robert A.
Rupen, a political science professor. "Politically, he
has something to exploit. I doubt that this is a strictly
Middle Eastern thing."

Seven students posed and flexed their
muscles Tuesday night hoping to
convince the judges and the audience
of 300 that they deserved the bragging
rights to the best physique on campus.
The winners of the UNC Bodybuild
ing Contest were Sue Skillman, a
sophomore from Wilmington, who won
the women's category, and Howard
Feggins, a junior from South Hill,
Virginia, who took first place for the
The event, sponsored by the intram
ural recreation department was judged
by area gym owners and enthusiasts.
George Nevole, director of the
championship, emphasized that
although the competition was still in its
infancy, it was a "damn good show."
This is the second year of the
"All the competitors were students,"
Nevole said after the event. "We had
good showmanship, music, lighting,
and staging which brought out a great
crowd who really got into it."
The judges were looking for overall
muscularity, balance of development,
density, definition, mass, shape and how
the contestants presented themselves,
the emcee said.
The two female entrants, Skillman,
a business administration major and
Wendy Tappen, a sophomore from
Carthage, took the stage together in
front of a raucous crowd. They went
through their compulsory poses
together, and then each took the stage
seperately to perform with music.
Skillman said she got involved with
the sport through weight training for
gymnastics, and has been competing for
three years. The two women, who train
together, said they wished there had
been more female competitors, but were
glad for the opportunity to win the
approval of the judges, since they both
train hard at bodybuilding.
The five male contestants walked out
together, greeted by a enthusiastic
crowd cheering on their favorites. They

A U.S. Coast Guard spokesman said
at least two missiles were fired from an
unidentified ship or plane at a Coast
Guard long-range navigation station on
the Italian island north of the Libyan
coast. A report indicated the missiles
landed in the water just off the island,
causing no damage or casualties, the
Presidential spokesman Larry
Speakes said the United States was still
assessing the situation and he could not
Rupen said Khadafy was not in a secure position
as leader of Libya. The recent fall in oil prices had
destablized the region, he said, and the Reagan
administration "seems to be content on keeping it hot"
"I don't think we've been restrained atallhe said.
"1 think we're trying to escalate this all we can." He
said the Reagan administration may be "picking" on
Libya to indirectly challenge the Soviet Union.
Both Rupen and Leutze agreed that the strikes could
bring about more Libyan terrorism. "I anticipate that
it (terrorism) will be extended to the continental United
States," Leutze said.
Further attacks by the Libyans will continue to be
"more terrorist-oriented," as opposed to military
attacks such as the attack Wednesday on an American
Coast Guard station in the Mediterranean, Leutze said.
Dr. Joel Schwartz, Bowman Gray professor of
political science, said he doubted the attacks would
seriously damage U.S.-Soviet relations.
"I don't think it will have any significant effect
(although) there will be a lot of rhetoric ... and
posturing," he said.
Schwartz said Soviet ships had been warned of the

together, before exiting to prepare for
their individual presentations.
The five contestants performed short
freestyle presentations accompanied by
music ranging fromN Pat Benatar to
They then took the stage for the final,
"pose-off" where they jockeyed for
positions in an attempt to show the
judges and the crowd their best attrib
utes, Nevole said. "It gives the judges
a better idea of the whole package,
whether it's symmetrical and in propor
tion," he said.
The involvement of the crowd plays
a big role in the outcome of the
competition, Nevole said.
Following the men's pose-off, the
winners were announced for the ladies'
and men's catagories. Sue Skillman won
over her training partner, Wendy
Tappen receiving a three-month mem
bership at The Gym and the traditional
Skillman said she considered it a
victory for her and her training partner
who had never been in competition
before. Women face some adversity in
pursuing body-building because it has
always been in the domain of men, she
said. "My family just , came to realize
that they approve of my involvement,"
The judges gave Kim Jones, a senior
from Gates, third place in the men's
competition. Jones also placed third in
last year's contest. ' ,
Feggins, a 198-pound junior who
placed second in last year's competition
was declared the winner. He is a
defensive linebacker on UNC's football
team who competed, "to see how well
developed I really am." He made his
presentation accompanied by Phil
Collins' "In the Air Tonight." He was
greeted by a substantial and loud
rooting section sitting in one corner of
the room, and the crowd seemed to gasp
as he displayed his Marvin Hagler-like

Speakes also confirmed that a truck
laden with rocket launchers had
exploded outside Ybkota U.S. Air
Force Base in Japan at 6:10 a.m. EST
but said it was too early to say whether
the incident was the result of a terrorist
attack. He said there were no injuries.

Tuesday but had found "no evidence

Speakes said the search-and-rescue

action by the United States and had left Libyan ports
before the bombing began.
"If Khadafy makes good on his threats ... Reagan

Student reaction tou the .bombing wasmore
supportive of the military action. "I think President
Reagan was totally justified," said Julia Groves, a
junior from Charlotte. "We did everything we could
to let them know we meant business.''
Other students worried that any escalation could
endanger friends or relatives. "As a Canadian, I'm
concerned for my American roommates' safety," said
Mike McGowan, a freshman from Canada. "I hope
that their lives are not put in jeopardy."

sobering reaction," said Elizabeth Motley, a senior

In a related development the Soviet
Union, responding to the bombing
raids, called off a planned meeting next
month between Secretary of State
George P. Shultz and Soviet Foreign
Minister , Eduard A. Shevardnadze, ,
casting doubt on plans for a second
summit this year between the leaders
of the two countries.
The White House called the Soviet
decision "a mistake." Shultz and
Shevardnadze were to have discussed
arrangements for Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev's visit to the United States
to meet with Reagan, a trip the two
leaders agreed on last November but
for which no date has been set.

installations throughout the world are
on full alert, and Speakes said Amer

Speakes declined to say whether the ;
military operation against Libya was
complete, but officials at both the White
House and the Pentagon insisted
numerous times Tuesday afternoon that
no new U.S. action was under way
despite reports of new episodes of anti
aircraft fire in Tripoli.
The spokesman refused to discuss
damage to the French embassy and to
several homes in an affluent residential
neighborhood of the Libyan capital.
The planes struck Khadafy's head
quarters, two military airfields and what
were termed terrorist training facilities.
Khadafy has not been seen in public
or heard on radio since the attacks, but
Libyan officials told the Associated
Press in Tripoli that he is "OK."
Doctors said Tuesday the raid killed
the adopted 15-month-old daughter of
Khadafy and seriously wounded two of
his young sons.
Pentagon spokesman Sims said late
Tuesday that efforts to assess the
effectiveness of the raids had been
hampered by cloud cover but that initial
reports indicated several Soviet-built
