J Carolina Symposium planners are
preparing for the biennial program
of speakers, discussions, films and
Exhibits to be featured this spring,
according to co-chairwoman Fifi
J The title of the 1988 Carolina
Symposium, scheduled for March 21
o 31, is "Educational Encounter:
Reaming is no accident."
; "Learning is a big process that you
accumulate all through life,"
Kashani-Sabet said Saturday.
; She said that in addition to formal
Schooling, the symposium will exam
ine the effects the media, technolog
ical advancement and the arts have
had on education.
5 The media's control over commun
ications of political information
bout such events as the Iran-contra
hearings is one of the topics Kashani
abet said the symposium will
explore. She said the programs will
also examine the effect of computers
; In examining the influence of the
arts on education, Kashani-Sabet
said she hopes to have a dance group
hold a workshop to involve the
audience in the performance,
i As part of the symposium, Ernest
Boyer, president of the Carnegie
Foundation, will speak on March 22
about the advancement of teaching
and higher education. '
Eugene Lang, a New York philan
thropist, is also a confirmed speaker.
Kashani-Sabet said she became
interested in Lang after seeing him
in an interview on "60 Minutes." Lang
spoke to an elementary school in the
Bronx and promised to pay for the
college education of all those in the
class who finished high school.
'. "It's so refreshing to see someone
so concerned about education,"
. Other possibilities for speakers and
discussions include Secretary of
Education William Bennett, New
York Gov. Mario Cuomo and Draper
Hill, political cartoonist for The
Kashani-Sabet said she would also
like to have a debate between repre
sentatives of the Educational Testing
Center of New Jersey and Bowdoin
College, which does not use SAT
scores in its admission process.
" In ' cooperation with , the Black
Student Movement, Kashani-Sabet
said she is trying to get the president
of Spelman College to speak on black
education in the United States.
She said her plans for films include
a tape of ABC's Saturday morning
educational cartoons, "Schoolhouse
Rock," and the movie "Educating
Kashani-Sabet emphasized that
much of the symposium is still in the
planning stage, and a suggestion
folder will be at the Union desk Nov.
2 to Nov. 23 for topic ideas. Organ
izations who can help sponsor events
and students who want to get
involved in the planning can also sign
up through the suggestion folder.
"We want to open the doors to
more student participation,"
The symposium now has about
$18,000 in funding from Student
Congress, the College of Arts and
Sciences and from money remaining
from past programs, Kashani-Sabet
said. She estimated that the sympo
sium will need an additional $15,000.
"One of the best qualities of the
symposium is that 90 percent of its
programs have been free and open
to students and the general public,"
This aspect makes fund raising a
big problem, she said, and it can be
difficult to attract well-known speak
ers if organizers don't have enough
money to pay big honorariums.
Kashani-Sabet said she hopes to
get more sponsorship from University
departments such as the schools of
journalism and education. Other
funding possibilities include corpo
rate sponsorship and individual

Moses said Linker failed to see
the motorcycle before turning,
which is a safe movement violation.
"I didn't see him," Linker said
after the accident. "I turned into the
parking lot and heard the bump."
King, a business administration
major from Raleigh, said he had
turned onto South Road and saw
Linker in the turning lane.
"She was watching this guy cross
the street," King said. "I was paying
attention to her just because I'm on"
a motorcycle and have to be more
aware of what's going on. She had
gone forward as if she were going
to go on and then she stopped.
