Anti-CIA protesters who con
fronted a CIA recruiter in front of
his hotel room and chased him out
of town committed "violent, terrorist
acts," according to a resolution
passed by a 6-5 vote of the UNC
Board of Trustees (BOT) Friday.
The resolution states that the
University will investigate the inci
dent and discipline the students
involved for any violations of the
"They should be expelled from the
University for their violent acts," said
John Pope, a trustee and the author
of the resolution.
"We are witnessing the death of
freedom of speech and association at
our University," Pope said in a
prepared statement. "Communists
such as Angela Davis are still wel
comed on campus, but conservatives
and representatives of the United
States government are being driven
off the campus by the violent acts of
a few students."
On Tuesday, about 15 protesters
surprised CIA lawyer Page Moffett
in front of his hotel room as he was
about to begin interviewing UNC law
students for summer jobs with the

nesses as "fruit juice" or "red dye,"

The protesters heckled Moffett. He
then told Diane Mage, a law student
who had just arrived to be inter
viewed, that he was canceling the
interviews. Moffett retrieved his bags
from his room and left in his car.
Some of the protesters followed
him by car and motorcycle, report
edly at high speeds.
"They are a bad lot," Pope said
of the protesters. "They irreparably
damaged UNC's tradition of freedom
of speech, association and of
"If the University does not take
strong actions at this time to inves
tigate and discipline the students
involved, then the violence is just
going to escalate and the tradition of
freedom at Chapel Hill will be lost
forever," he said.
Dale McKinley, a member of the
CIA Action Committee who had
followed Moffett down 1-40 on his
motorcycle, said the BOT had
"We never asked Mr. Moffett to
leave," McKinley said. "We never
intended to stop any recruiting. We
were there to make a symbolic
statement. The only reason we fol
lowed him was to see if he was going
to recruit elsewhere.
"I don't think they will be able to
make a good case that we broke the
disciplinary code," he said. "I'm not
particularly worried about it.'
When reached for comment Satur
day, Pope would not say which
section of the student code the
protesters violated, nor would he
comment further on his statement.
One section of the student code
states that "willfully obstructing or
interfering" with any of the Univer

inciting others to engage in, individ

Faculty members in the School of
Education said they are dissatisfied
with a recommendation to eliminate
the master's degree program in
reading and language arts.
The recommendation is part of a
controversial report compiled by a
faculty task force for the School of
Education, containing evaluations
and recommended changes for many
programs within the school.
According to a statement made at
a faculty meeting Feb. 24 by Jill
Fitzgerald, associate professor of
education and a task force member,
the task force recommended eliminat
ing the program because of its low
"The criterion was blatantly,
unfairly applied across programs,
since at least three other programs
in the school were smaller than ours,"
In her statement, Fitzgerald also
expressed concern about North
Carolina's high rate of illiteracy
among its citizens.
Kinnard White, professor of edu
cation and a task force member, said
the fact that not many students are
enrolled in the program is relevant
to examining the program's viability.
It is also important to distinguish
between a program and an offering
of courses, he said. The school would
still offer classes on reading.
In response to the task force report,
the faculty voted 23-0 with one
abstention to reorganize the reading
program and combine it with special

tests do workplace are a reality for many graduates
By PATRICIA BROWN
The idea of finding jobs and
interviewing becomes a reality for
most seniors as graduation quickly
approaches. Along with these inter
views, many students will find pros
pective employers requiring manda
tory drug screening tests.
Because suspicion of drug use is
the main disqualifier of otherwise
qualified job applicants, drug screen
ing tests have become more common,
said William Marumoto, founder and
president of the Interface Group.
The Interface Group, a
Washington-based executive search
firm, conducted a survey of top
personnel directors among 252
responding Fortune 500 companies.
"Out of the companies that
responded, half are currently testing
for drug use, while another 20 percent
said they are considering plans to
start such testing," Marumoto said.
More than two-thirds of the direc
tors surveyed said they believe smok
ing marijuana after work decreases
an employee's on-the-job productiv
ity, Marumoto said.
Fred McNeese, an IBM spokes
man in Washington, said the com
pany tests all potential employees,
including full-time, part-time and
"We believe it is very important to
have a drug-free workplace," he said.
"Even if an employee takes drugs for
recreational use, outside of work, we
don't feel that person could perform
to his potential."
Since 1983, IBM has drug-tested
applicants who make it to the final
stage of the hiring process. Although
the employees hired before 1983 are
not tested, they are watched for any
decline in work performance,
"If a manager notices a substantial
drop-off in performance and believes
it is related to drugs, the employee
will be sent to the medical department
for help," he said.
"We have a large employee assist
ance program to help with a variety
of problems. IBM's program is based
on rehabilitation, not retribution." J
Jim Walker, manager of labor
relations at Texas Instruments in
Dallas, said Texas Instruments's pre-
employment process screens for drugs
"WeVe been testing for over a year
now, and the results have been good,"
he said. "We feel it is important to
insure the best working conditions
possible and to us that includes a
drug-free working place."

Parking fines will be doubled next
year, and no student who lives within
a two-mile radius of the University
will be eligible for student parking,
according to two proposals approved
by the Board of Trustees (BOT)
Prices for parking permits will also
increase about 10 percent next year,
parking in metered spaces will be
restricted 24 hours a day and
"repeated offenders" those who
have three or more violations in a
month will be fined $25 for any
Fines for permit violations will rise
from $10 to $20, and for meter
violations from $5 to $10. Fines for
reserved space violations will triple
The price for the most expensive
employee and faculty permit will rise
to $260 from $240. The. most expen
sive student permit price will rise to
$125.75 from $114.75.
The Department of Transportation
and Parking developed the proposals
approved by the trustees.
About 900 permit spaces will no
longer be available next year while
demand for spaces will increase,
according to a department report
released at the meeting.
The larger fines for parking vio
lations will reduce the number of cars
illegally occupying permit spaces, the
report said, adding that over 42,000
parking spaces are lost each year to

Youth reigns as men's swimming strokes to title
By ROBERT D'ARRUDA
RALEIGH A spirited North
Carolina men's swimming and
diving team invaded Carmichael
Natatorium over the weekend and
overwhelmed the field to win the
1988 ACC championship.
The Tar Heels amassed 724
points, easily outdistancing
second-place Virginia at 680.
Saturday's win was the first
ACC title in five years for UNC.
The championship capped a spec
tacular regular-season campaign
in which the Tar Heels were 9-1
overall and a perfect 5-0 in
"We came here to win," UNC
diving coach Randy Emerson said.
"And that was the bottom line."
During the three-day meet, the
Tar Heels were paced with many
stellar performances. Leading the
way were sophomores Larry
Bloch, Jed Guenther and Tod
Schroeder. Also giving biue-chip
efforts were two terrific freshmen,
Nunzio Esposto and Marc
But the biggest performance of
the meet came from another
freshman, John Davis. A native
of Weston, Conn., he swam the
200-yard freestyle on Thursday in
the ACC-record time of 1:37.30.
He also captured first-place
honors in the 200-yard individual
medley and earned second place
in the 200-yard fly.
For his efforts, Davis was
named the conference's co
swimmer of the year, along with
Virginia's Dave McCarty.
"I'm very excited to win the
award," Davis said. "But it means
so much more to be a part of this
team. I feel more excited for the
Head coach Frank Comfort
said he was very pleased with his
team's heart and desire.
"I'm very happy," he said. "We
came here to win the conference
championship and this is the
culmination of that goal. We
brought 20 athletes here, and 20
athletes scored and shared in the
victory. And that's what it's all
But the real key to winning the
title was the performance of the
Tar Heel divers. North Carolina
placed four people in the top eight
of both the one- and three-meter
competitions, with Esposto lead
ing the way with two second-place
Meanwhile, Chris Morris, Andy
Hunter and Ted Hautau also
added tremendous showings in
both events to clearly outdistance
"It was a team effort in diving,"
Emerson said. "I know I got four
guys in there, so at any time they're
going to beat each other. All year
they have been battling it out."
Bloch, who hails from Parlin,
N. J., also chalked up some impres
sive statistics. He burned up the
water in the 100-yard free in a time
of 44.62 to win that event. He also
splashed his way to a second-place
showing in the 50-yard free, and
in the 100-yard fly he took third
