2Jhe Daily Tar Heel Monday, October 20, 1986 Soviets send home five U.S. diplomats From' Associated Press reports MOSCOW The Soviet Union expelled five U.S. diplomats on Sunday, five days after the last of 25 Soviet U.N. envoys ordered out of the United States returned home. A Kremlin official linked the expulsions to the U.S. order against the Soviet U.N. diplomats in Mos cow. In Washington, Secretary of State George Shultz responded, "We will protest, and we will take some action." Sunday's expulsion of four diplo mats from Moscow and one from Leningrad was announced by the official news agency Tass. It said in a brief report that the Foreign Spangler North Carolinians today look to Spangler and the university system for leaders "to light a new fire for North Carolina," Martin said, speaking for the people of North Carolina. "President Spangler is the one fellow in North Carolina whom I think has a better k'o than 1 do," Martin said. "For nearly 200 years, the graduates of this University have served this state, this , ouniry and the world." Alumnus Kuralt said he found out earlier than most people about Spangler's superior ijuatities. when "Dicky" Spangler, then 13, ran for class president. "I'm i.ting for you again," he told the new president. UNC alumni have put into Spangler's hands the care of the University they loved and still love, Kuralt said. "The number of living alumni of the 16 universities is 529,592," he told Spangler. "Most of them will come to you in person." Gary Mauney, UNC Association of Student Governments president, said the students in North Carolina's public universities will happily offer their assistance to the new president. Spangler will have to answer difficult questions about how to improve the content and character of academic programs and keep education open to all, Maun y said. Joseph Branch, retired chief jus tice of the N.C. Supreme Court, administered the oath of office to Spangler. A boxed lunch reception in McCorkle Place, the quadrangle between Franklin Street and the Oid Well, followed the ceremony Spangler outlined f-.-ur ireas in which he wanted the University system to make a difference in the future.

The five are Jack Roberts of the U.S. consulate in Leningrad and four diplomats from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow; William Norville, a first secretary, Charles Ehrenfield, a third secretary, and attaches Gary Lonn quist and Dave Harris. The Tass announcement did not mention the U.S. expulsions of the Soviet diplomats from the United Nations, but Georgi Arbatov, a chief Kremlin spokesman, indicated that the Soviets were retaliating. Arbatov spoke in a satellite interview from Moscow. from page 1 abling illiteracy in our people," he said. "Our universities educate those who w ill be the teachers in our public schools. How effective those teachers are wiil determine the quality of our universities' incoming freshmen as well as the productivity of employees in our industries." The University is now studying a program to improve teacher educa tion, Spangler said. Secondly, Spangler said, health care research must be well-financed. "We must give our doctors the laboratories, the scientific equipment and the support personnel to enable them to fulfill their mission." Also, the university system can help determine which industries and occupations will make North Carol inians prosperous. "The university can act as a catalyst to produce a sounder economic base for our state," he said. "We have capital and we have leaders. If put together properly, those elements will bring employ ment and profit to the people in our state." But Spangler said the first duty of the university system is to educate the 130,000 students on its 16 campuses. "The main purpose of the university has been and w ill continue to be to encourage students to enrich their lives through study and to gain a lifelong desire for learning." Paying professors well, providing researchers with resources and speaking out for academic freedom will enable the university system to fulfill its educational mission, he said. "We must all work at findin-2 the answers, Tie said. "What we are trying to' do, after all, is something we North Carolinians believe we are good at: inspiring our citizens to become the best they can be."

Group members planned to march in front of the audience before Spangler's speech but were stopped by University Police and Frederic Schroeder, dean of students. "I wouldn't call it restraining them," Schroeder said Sunday. "It was a request that they wait until a better time." After much arguing with Schroeder and Maj. Charles Mauer of University Police, the students were "allowed to march following Spangler's speech. ii i III IlNlIHill AM i (i it Him Aim s iraiu n in from page 1 "It's not the signs, it's the state ment," Dale McKinley, group member, said during the protest. '"If we put a 'Support the Contras' sign up we probably wouldn't have any problems." Group member Marguerite Arnold said stopping a student protest was "repression." "So much for freedom of expres sion," she said. Prior to the protesters' march, discussion with University officials and the group was heated. "I don't think (the support group) would gain the respect of the Uni versity (by protesting)," Mauer said. "It's not in the best interest of the University. I'm not worried about South Africa." McKinley responded, "Why? Would the University be embar rassed about what we're doing or what they're doing?" The students marched in front of the steps of South Building and up the center aisle in pairs after Spangler's speech. Several students hoisted a banner in front of the steps while the others carried signs read ing, "UNC Stop Sanctioning Apar theid," "No Profit From Racism" and "Spangler Take A Stand." Schroeder said Sunday that he has had positive reactions from some of the faculty. "I thought (the protest) was a very appropriate expression of a position they support," he said. Bryan Hassel, student body pres ident and group member, called the protest "wonderful." "Everyone noticed it," he said. "It distracted people from the business at hand but didn't disrupt the business at hand. It was perfectly appropriate." f 'I. il "!

From modest measures to begin Daylight Savings Time three weeks earlier and designate the rose as the national flower, to the most sweeping tax code revision in a generation and the biggest spending bill in history, the Congress that ended Saturday night compiled a record of stag gering scope. Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., summarized the session in a single word: "Productive." But, he added, "Not every policy dilemma was resolved and some of our answers are less than complete." The exact impact of the tax changes and a rewrite of the nation's immigration laws will take years to determine.
