Seven UNC students are fasting to
protest a CIA recruitment visit to the
law school Feb. 25, CIA Action
Committee members said Tuesday.
Steve Sullivan, a part-time student,
said he has not eaten since last
Wednesday and has lost 17 pounds.
Dale McKinley, a member of the
CIA Action Committee, said the fast'

Student liaison position will improve
UNC-town relationship, Bailey says
By WILL LINGO
The creation of a student liaison
to attend Chapel Hill Town Council
meetings is a positive change for
relationships between the University
and the town, said Student Body
President Brian Bailey.
"We got what we could get," Bailey
said. "I'm not satisfied in the sense
that it's exactly what we wanted, but
I think it's the best we could do."
The town council unanimously
approved a resolution Monday night
that creates a UNC Student Govern
ment liaison to the council. Accord
ing to the resolution, "(The liaison)
shall be recognized as the formal line
of communication between the town
itself to call off its visit."
The fasters are not overreacting,
"Many people are dying as a result
of CIA actions," he said. "I don't
think it 11 go that far (for the students
to die), but they are certainly willing
to jeopardize their health."
Sullivan said the committee
members had debated confronting
the CIA in a different way.
"At first we were thinking about
trying to debate with the CIA, and
then we decided that would be
legitimizing their claims," he said.

Bailey and Rob Friedman, speaker
of the Student Congress, petitioned
the council last November to create
a student non-voting ex officio
position on the council. But the idea
was not feasible because of legal
difficulties; North Carolina law does
not authorize an ex officio member

change its structure," Bailey said. "To

council, students will have to elect

The CIA's prime purpose is to
subvert democratically elected
governments, Sullivan said.
"Our point is that at least 6 million
people have died because of CIA
sponsored terrorist actions over the
last 50 years or so," he said. "I would
compare .it to having the Mafia or
the Ku Klux Klan coming to visit."
Fred Schroeder, dean of students,
said the CIA is not a criminal

criminal organization, like the Mafia,
and an agency of the government,"

weeks to clean off the oil-based paint.
Bailey said. The liaison will tell
students and campus organizations
how council actions will affect them.
The council will also become
familiar with a student representative,
Bailey said. "It's important to have
someone representing the students at
every meeting, not just when some
thing important comes up," he said.
Bailey said he would not fill the
position during his term as president.
He said his goal was to establish a
position on the council, and he will

Students have a right to protest the
CIA visit, but other UNC students
also have the right to be interviewed
for jobs, Schroeder said.
"A government agency or a private
agency might be objectionable," he
said, "but the University is going to
have to maintain an openness
towards organizations that are rec
ognizable throughout the country."
Sullivan said he understood the
University's position, but would still
resist the visit.

Young people and young ideas are

a speech to over 100 supporters in
the Student Union Tuesday.
"IVe heard some people criticize
me because they say IVe got too many
young people involved in my cam

enough gray hair to go around."
Jordan's speech, the kickoff for his
statewide university campaign,

the person who's in the governor's

All students have an interest in the
CIA visit, McKinley said.
"It's our university, and as long as
it allows an organization like the CIA
to come recruit on campus, we feel
it's wrong," he said. "It (the fast) is
also an educational tool, because we
think most' students who would
interview with the CIA don't know
about its actions abroad, and this is
a way of educating them."
14 of the "Hallways and Highrises"
contract booklet, reads: "In the public
areas of a residence hall ... the
replacement or repair costs are
charged to the individual(s) when
responsibility is established.
"However, when individual(s)
responsibility cannot be determined,
the residents of a floor, suite, wing
or the entire hall become collectively
responsible for restoration costs."
In Clark's letter, he asked the
housing department to review the
policy and consider changing it. Legal
action may be taken if housing
issues that directly affect them, and
also for students to show the town
that they are concerned about impor

The Student liaison on the town
council is a positive step, but more
is needed, Yelverton said.
"We can also appoint people to be
liaisons to the towns of Chapel Hill
and Carrboro planning boards,"
Yelverton said. "That would address
problems, like growth, that we're a
big part of here."

Rierson said a campus-wide voting
district should be a long-term goal
to increase student voting, but having
a student elected to the council would
not be effective because it would only
give students one vote.
The student liaison can be effective,
but Student Government must make
sure it keeps in touch with the liaison,
