The money will be used to purchase annual trophies for an outstanding male and female intramural participant and plaques for four male and female runner up participants. Shields said. Poe chose to endow his donation so the awards could be given annually. Wayne Going, the program's associate director, said the commit tee that set the criteria for recipients of the award consisted of four faculty members and three students. Poe may be able to attend the presentation of the awards, Going said. It will take place in the Pit on April 21. The criteria for the awards will be in the areas of sportsmanship, leadership, participation and aca demics. The student must have participated in 4 of the 5 major team sports, 3 of the 5 minor team sports and 2 or more of the non point system activities. To qualify in the area of scholarship, the nominees must be in good aca demic standing during the aca demic year. Intramural managers will nom inate students for the Poe awards until March 25, and the IM-REC professional staff will make the final selections for the awards. Poe attended UNC from 1930 to 1933, took one year off and returned to graduate in 1935. He graduated from the UNC law school in 1938, and practices law in Raleigh. Poe has also recently published a book about people from North Carolina whom he has known over the years. He participated in the intramural program in football, basketball, Softball, tennis and track. He won the Grail Cup three times, an award based on participation and team achievement as an outstanding intramural athlete. Gary McLamb, a graduate assistant in the physical education department, said the University used to have an intramural awards system, but at some time in the past it was dropped. Poe has requested that the amount of his endowment be kept confidential, McLamb said. J i Cinema buffs get chance to see movie extravaganza By RICHARD SMITH Staff Writer j There are two events this weekend that the avid film-gcer cannot afford to miss.

Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger Than Paradise" opens the Festival tomorrow night. A competition running with the series will award free bottles of wine to anyone who can find the common thread that runs through the series. "The Journey," a staggering 14 and a half hours long, receives its southern premiere at the Yorktown Theatre in Durham. The film is described as "a journey through the consciousness of a world which spends billions on weapons while people starve, which exhausts itself in a gigantic arms race while unable to solve even simple prob lems." It is a non-narrative film that attempts objectivity but acknowl edges its bias. In a spoken introduc tion over a blank screen, Watkins says, "... I must emphasize that our presentation of the information is biased, due to our very strong feelings about the subject of this film." It is a self-styled "Film for Peace" and something of a peak in Watkins' career in film. The catalyst for "The Journey" was his controversial 1965 film "The War Game," a docu-drama of World War III made for the British Broadcasting Company, who subse quently banned it. The outcry was so great the film received a theatrical release and went on to win an Oscar for best documentary. Watkins' subjects in "The Journey" include victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings and the German survivors of Allied fire-bombings on Hamburg during World War II. In this respect, and because of the documentary's length, the film might provoke comparisons to "Shoah." But Watkins' view is less specific and certainly multi-layered. He explores media manipulation, the withholding of information by governments both East and West, the irresponsible, "photo-opportunity" attitude that governs journalism and television news. Interviewees speak about war, racism, aggression, exploitation and an almost endless list of other subjects. A dozen countries are featured. Watkins filmed on five continents and in eight languages. It is very difficult to say exactly and concisely just what this film is "about." It is little wonder then, that "The Journey" has been de scribed by critics as "more an event than a film."
