U.S. blames Soviets
for stalling smmmM
WASHINGTON The Reagan
administration, stung by cancella
tion of summit planning talks, lashed
out at the Soviet Union for lack of
progress in easing superpower ten
sions and condemned the Kremlin
for failing to avert the bombing of
a West Berlin nightclub.
"They have wasted six months
since the summit," the State Depart
ment said in a statement Wednesday
that blamed Moscow for not main
taining the momentum begun at
President Reagan's meeting with
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
In a separate but related incident,
the department said the Soviets had
been warned that Libyans were
planning an assault in the German
city and could have stopped them
from carrying it out.
It virtually blamed Moscow for
the April 5 discotheque bombing in
which an American soldier and a
Turkish woman were killed and
hundreds wounded. Reagan, saying
there was irrefutable evidence linking
Libya to the attack, had U.S.
warplanes bomb Tripoli and Bengh
azi on Monday in "self-defense"
"We urged the Soviets and East
Germans to restrain the Libyans,"
the State Department said. "Had
they done so, this entire cycle of
events would have been avoided."
The department said the Soviets
were advised March 27, in Washing
ton and in Berlin, that there was
evidence indicating Libyans in East
Germany planned action against
U.S. interests and citizens in the
The statement said the United
States had kept Moscow informed
of its concerns at every stage leading
up to Monday's bombing of Libya
and had "requested their assistance."
The department criticized the
- Soviets for supplying Libya with
anti-aircraft missiles and said the
United States had warned Moscow
the missiles "might encourage (Col.
Moammar) Khadafy to take risks

The United States and the Soviets

and arrange the agenda for a second
Reagan-Gorbachev summit meeting
to be held in Washington either in
July or after the U.S. congressional
elections in November.
But the Soviets responded Tues
day to the American attack on Libya
by denouncing it as a "criminal
action" and cancelling Shevard

Despite the Student Congress's
Wednesday denial of 1985-86 Elections
Board Chairman Bruce Lillie's reap
pointment, Lillie still could be next
year's chairman, according to the
The congress voted 15-3-1 against
Lillie's reappointment in its Wednesday
meeting, citing Lillie's handling of a
controversial election law ruling in the
February election as grounds for the
But the election laws state that the
chairman could serve more than the
usual one-year term if a successor had
not been appointed. The law states:
"The Chairman of the Election Board
shall serve for one (1) year or until his
successor is appointed and confirmed,
or until (1) he resigns, (2) he becomes
ineligble to serve on the Election
Board," or he is removed by the Student
Congress after impeachment proced
ings have been brought against him.
Former Student Attorney General
Mary Evans said Thursday night she
believed Lillie would remain as chair
man if Student Body President Bryan
Hassel did not select another candidate
for the position.
"It's my interpretation that you serve
a year," Evans said. "However, if you
do not have a successor or the other

provisions have not been satisfied,
which they have not, then you're still
The present student attorney general,
Walker Poole, disagreed. "A focal point
here would involve the one-year issue,"
Poole said. "If that one year had been
served, I would interpret that he is no
longer able to serve.
"Once that year had been served," he
said, "his position has been terminated."
Hassel said Thursday night he was
unsure if he would try to reappoint Lillie
and said he did not want to say anything
definite until after he had talked with
"It would be stupid of me to try (to
reappoint Lillie) if it seems like I'm
trying to slip through a loophole,"
Hassel said. But he would talk to others
more knowledgeable than himself on
the election laws, and especially with
Lillie, before he made any final decision.
"If it looks like I have a good chance,"
he said, "I would try it because I want
Bruce to stay on."
Lillie said Thursday night that he did
not know if he would try to remain as
Elections Board chairman. "It only
means that there's going to be a nasty
impeachment," he said. "And it puts
both myself and the Student Congress
in an awkward situation." The Elections
Board would be dragged through the
mud, and the students could lose faith
in the election process, he said.
"But I wouldn't have said I wanted
the job if I didnl think I could do it,"
he said.1 "And I obviously think they
made the wrong decision." Having
served as chairman in the last year, Lillie
said, he had gained experience that a
new chairman wouldn't have.
"It's hard to have a true feeling for
what you're doing the first time you're
doing it," he said.
Having presented the reasons he
would make a good chairman in
Wednesday's Student Congress meet
ing, Lillie said he thought that since the
representatives had not listened the first
time, if it was brought to them again
it would be doubtful that they would
"And I'm not sure if it would do
anybody any good to drag this out,"
Student Congress Speaker Jaye
Sitton said that if Hassel did not select
another candidate, then the congress
would probably take action to encour
age him to do so.
If he still refused, Sitton said, it would
be possible that Bruce may be be taken
to the (Student) Supreme Court. Sitton
also said she felt Hassel would be
violating the intent of the law if he did
not select another candidate.
Student Congress representative
Brad Torgan (Dist. 4), one of the
members who opposed Lillie's reap
pointment, said Thursday night he
would not pursue Lillie's removal from
office because Torgan would be gra
duating in May.
"Why, it's not worth my time,"
Torgan said. "Brian said he will reopen
the selection process, and I have no
reason to doubt him.

Graffiti appeared on three UNC buildings Monday
bearing messages directed at the Board of Trustees.
The messages said: "The BOT (Board of Trustees)
better watch out for me," "The shanties are gone, but
the movement is strong," and "The BOT better hold
steady, cause we're ready for the 24th."
The green and blue spray-painted anonymous
warnings marked Lenoir Hall, the Student Stores and
the Union, and apparently were warnings to UNC's
Endowment Board, which will meet April 24 to
consider divesting from companies dealing with South
Members of the Endowment Board said that while
they respected the students' right to express themselves,
they thought it was inappropriate for anyone to write
on buildings. .
J. Clint Newton, chairman of the Endowment Board,
said the Board would definitely make a decision on
divestment April 24, but the graffiti would have no
effect on the members' decisions.
George R. Ragsdale, an Endowment Board member,
said "It (the graffiti) doesn't help the cause of those
who want us to divest because they employed such
an inappropriate medium,"
Endowment Board member Robert C. Eubanks said
he thought the University should divest, but called the
graffiti artist "immature and childish."
"Anyone caught doing that ought to be dealt with
accordingly," he said.
W. Travis Porter, an Endowment Board member,
said, "Anyone who tries to influence my vote by
intimidation ought to realize that they're not making
a good choice of a means to influence me.
"I won't have anyone determining my actions by
writing on walls behind my back," he said.
The message was apparently related to the Endow
ment Board's meeting on divestment of funds from
South Africa, but members of the Anti-Apartheid
Support Group said that their group was not
responsible for the graffiti.
Robert Reid-Pharr, a member of the Anti-Apartheid
Support Group said, "All our group has done is read
"We are not responsible," he said. "If this one
individual is so concerned about the divestment issue
he should join our group and divert his energies into
something more constructive."

member, said: "We agree with the sentiment, but not
the action. They should have put the messages on

Campus Y personnel problems were
still unresolved after Wednesday's
Campus Y Advisory Board meeting.
Board Chairman Leslie Garner said
he could not comment on when the job

Hatcher-Wilson and Associate Director
George Gamble would be decided.
Vice Chancellor and Dean of Student
Affairs Donald A. Boulton said he did

The Wednesday meeting followed the
November dismissal and subsequent
rehiring of Gamble. Gamble was rehired
on the condition that he sign a letter
of resignation dated May 15, and he
has been meeting with student affairs
and Hatcher-Wilson since November in
attempts to regain his job.
Hatcher-Wilson said she did not
know when the board and student
affairs would make a decision or what
the outcome would be.
"All that 1 know is that I'm still here,
and I'm doing my job," she said.
She said she enjoyed her job and
expected to stay at the Campus Y. "I

Gamble said he wanted the Campus
Y's problems to be resolved. "Given the
difficulties we Ve had this year, things
must improve," he said.
Gamble said he thought the advisory
board and the Division of Student
Affairs were making reasonable efforts
to resolve the personnel problem and
were not stalling the decision until
students left in May.
"1 believe a good-faith effort is being
made by the advisory board and the
office of the vice chancellor," he said.
"(There is) some sense of a desire to
move as quickly as possible."
Gamble said he did not know when
a decision would be made.
"I'm willing and able to wait. I'm
willing to let the process play itself out."
Gamble said he would consider any
compromises the advisory board or
Division of Student Affairs suggested.
"Efforts are under way to resolve the
problems that exist," he said. "I hope
those efforts will have a satisfactory
result. If the result is not precisely what
I would prefer, then I think I have to
make a decision as to how acceptable
"(But) 1 would very much like to
continue to work here if the atmosphere
and the organizational and personnel
environment at the Y were consistent
with the philosophy and values I
associate with the Y," he said.
"That environment has existed in the
past," he said. "I was a part of that in
the past, and I see no reason why it
can't exist in the future."
Although the present problems have
caused tension within the Campus Y,
Gamble said he did not think the
importance of the organization had
"The Campus Y has been around for
126 years. I'm sure it has had its share
of problems," he said. "It has played
an important role here at the University,
and I think it will continue to play that
role despite the momentary problems."

After more than a year of, preparation, the planning
departments of Chapel Hill and Orange County have
proposed a joint, comprehensive long-range development
plan for the two municipalities.
But most of the 275 people at the public hearing at
Carrboro Elementary School Thursday weren't happy about
Although the idea for a joint development plan has been
floating around for most of the decade, the first proposal,
presented last fall, met such opposition that two revisions
of it have been made.
Predictably, the draft calls for commercial buildup and
increased-density housing in several spots in Chapel Hill and
rural Orange County. The Greenways network also would
be expanded, linking the areas together.
Marvin Collins, planning director for Orange County, read
at Thursday's meeting a list of about eight modifications
made to the plan since the January hearing.
The New Hope Church Road and Interstate 40 interchange
formerly was to receive a major light industrial park and
office complexes. Now the boards have agreed to stop at
Blackwood Station, in northern Orange County, was
projected to expand its retail business areas and to add offices.
The boards now say that Blackwood Station can remain
as it is.
Along 1-40, the locations of a proposed area and a light
industrial park were reversed, so that private homes would
be farther away from the noise of the highway.
The proposal to put the commercial industrial zone on
Calvander, an area just across the northwest border of
Carrboro. was maintained.
Collins said the aim of the 10- and 20-year plans was
to avoid urban sprawl and said that development should
be contingent on the installation of sewer and water facilities.
"It we can control the utilities, I think in large measure
we can also control development," he said.
But Chapel Hill and Carrboro disagree on whether to
extend water and sewer facilities into the environmentally
sensitive Watershed area.
A representative from the Carrboro Planning Board said
sewers were desirable because some soil in the town is not
suited for septic systems.
In addition, citizen opinions were mixed on whether Chapel
Hill, Carrboro and Orange County should engage in such
a joint development plan.
Many of the 40 residents who had signed up to speak
were from the Calvander area.
"I resent the fact that the planning staff of Carrboro, a
town in which I am not a resident . . . has seen fit to propose
an industrial development on our property," said Ruby
Blackwood, of Box 208, Chapel Hill. "I think it is important
that small communities like ours (Calvander) be (protected)."
Another resident agreed. "The sole rationale, from, our
standpoint, is to put tax dollars in the coffers of a financially
strapped community that lies to our southeast (Carrboro),"
John Sowder, of Old N.C. 86 highway.
The effort to draw people into Calvander demonstrates
Carrboro's desire to annex it eventually, some residents said.
Carrboro did not initially participate in drawing up the
plans, but it is likely that its planning board will probably
sign whatever agreement is chosen.
Some land along Homestead Road is currently dubbed
"landfill site." W.A. Scott, who lives on Homestead Road,
said he was speaking on behalf of 300 families when he
asked that it be removed from the map.
Others also objected to development in the Homestead
Rogers roads area.
" The Homestead Road Thoroughfare ... is going to
be named after the Homesteaders it plows under," Sowder
The Chapel Hill Town Council will reconsider the plan
on April 29 in light of the citizens' comments.
