Groups exceed goals
bd lobby frnd-traoseir
By JENNY CLONINGER
The North Carolina Child Care and
Neglect Project raised more than $1,200
from students' contributions last week to
finance its lobby in the N.C. State
Legislature supporting funding public
The fund-raising drive, held in Lenoir
Hall, was assisted by Marriott, which
allowed students to use their mealcards to
donate money. One of the event's organ
izers, Doug Thomas, said the contributions
exceeded the group's goals.
"People said we'd only raise a few
hundred dollars, but we raised almost $200
the first morning," Thomas said. "After the
first day, we felt we could reach our goal."
Joel Segal, the project's coordinator,
said the lobbyists' aim is for every child
in the state to have affordable day care.
The next step in the project will be a
town meeting and a community letter
writing fund-raising campaign, Segal said.
"We've got a budget now to work with
and see a statewide lobby become a
reality," he said.
"The fact that we made so much money
shows that students really do care," Segal
said. "There are a lot of people who really
worked hard, and a success like this makes
us want to work even harder."
The group will hold meetings period
ically, and people interested in the issue
are encouraged to attend and write letters
to their representatives advocating the bill.
Segal said the project needs 50-60 people
to be successful.
Participants won't be asked for a large
time commitment, Segal said, but writing
letters to representatives is a necessity.
"One letter could mean whether or not
we get child care," he said.
Community awareness is the next aim
of the project, Segal said. "Right now
Chapel Hill is asleep, and it's going to take
students to wake it up," he said. "This is
a very serious lobby organization. This is
students taking initiative to change the
system. With our energy, youth and
creativity, we can go in there and get this
It is important that a large group of
people work together to lobby the legis
lature, Segal said.
"We want to be very careful and tactical.
We don't want to move until a very highly
unified statewide lobby exists," he said.
A bill is now before the legislature that
proposes the funding of 18 pilot preschool
projects throughout the state. The bill was
not passed last session. It will be presented
again in June, during the short session.
It is possible that Rep. Anne Barnes will
sponsor another bill for the January
session, Segal said.
Barnes said Monday that she supports
the issue, but is waiting for more infor
mation on the status of the existing bill.
"It's an issue that needs to be addressed,

By REBECCA NESBIT
The proposed annexation of the
"entranceway" to Chapel Hill was deferred
by the Chapel Hill Town Council Monday
after opposition from a property owner in
Although the area, which is on N.C. 54
at the entrance to Chapel Hill, meets town
requirements for annexation and can be
legally annexed by the town, the possibility
of a contract that would make annexation
unnecessary arose during the meeting.
After an hour and a half of discussion,
a decision on the annexation was delayed
so it could be discussed further at the
council's April 25 meeting.
Since the early 1920s, the DuBose family
has owned land in the area proposed to
be annexed. Peter DuBose now lives there
with his family.
Dan Garner, an attorney representing
the DuBose family, said there are no
current plans for development of the land.
"I just want to know 'Why now?' if
everything has been shelved indefinitely,"
Garner said. "I think it is premature."
Garner said one thing that concerns the
DuBose family is that the town is taking
this action in order to expand the town's
"They think it is a strange attempt of
the town to reach out for land, especially
when they don't need it," he said. "They
feel like if there is no need to annex now,
then why make them?"
Peter DuBose said, "I don't see the real
logic in this. We don't want to be pushed
to annex by having to develop.
"We have tried to do what's right and
best for Chapel Hill, and we hope that
you will also do what's right and best for
this area," DuBose said.
Council member Nancy Preston said, "I
don't think the town is really annexing this
for tax purposes. I am concerned that we
really understand what we're doing, and
we try to be fair in all of our dealings.
"I wonder if there isn't a way that we
can make an arrangement with the
DuBoses so that we delay annexation of
this area until a later time, if we can be
assured that they would be cooperative
with the plans for that development,"
Preston suggested that if it was possible
and reasonable, a formal contract should
be drawn up between the town and the

Mozambique support becomio
issue on college campuses
By CARRIE DOVE
The question of support for the
Mozambique rebels is set to become
the trendy issue on college campuses,
The Mozambique National Resis
tance (MNR) is fighting the U.S.
aided Marxist Mozambican govern
ment amid reports of terrorism by the
Kansas Sen. Robert Dole receives
mail from college students against the
MNR, said Jeff House, Dole
"Some of the campus groups have
adopted this as their pet issue," he
said. "Mozambique has replaced
South Africa right now." South
Africa was dubbed last year's most
Opposition to the MNR inspired
a letter-writing campaign last year by
UNC students who called the rebels
"a marauding band of terrorists who
routinely commit atrocities against
and murder innocent civilians."
The Mozambique Committee of
UNC's Action Against Apartheid has
released a booklet detailing alleged
acts of terrorism by the MNR and
conditions in Mozambique.
"The reason that Action Against
Apartheid is concerned with Mozam
bique is the direct association of the
MNR with the South African govern
ment," said committee member
But conservatives deny the
"The Mozambique government is
opposed by a group of pro-Western
freedom fighters that was assisted by
the South African military, but they
do not continue to accept South
African assistance," said Bill Pascoe,
Third World policy analyst at the
Heritage Foundation, a Washington
Sen. Jesse Helms of North Caro
lina has led the fight against aid for
the Mozambican government, said
Tom Boney, a spokesman for the
Senate Foreign Relations Commit
tee, of which Helms is the ranking
"(Helms) believes that we ought to
be talking to the resistance. We have
seen no evidence that they are aided
by the South African government,"
American conservatives are bewil
dered by the Reagan administration's
continued support for the Marxist
government, which also receives aid
from the Soviet Union, Pascoe said.
"It is a strange and bizarre paradox
the U.S. is providing assistance to
a Communist government," he said.
The U.S. has supported the
Mozambican government since 1981,
sending $250 million in direct aid,
"We had better Mozambique pol
icy under the Carter administration
than under Reagan," he said.
The Mozambican government has
engineered a famine in order to
appeal for more aid, Boney said.
"They have begun their own fam
ine, in a cynical ploy to get Western
assistance," Pascoe said. "Most
conservatives see U.S. policy in
Mozambique to be screwed."
Board will not divest further
rouos voice concerns
By JACKIE DOUGLAS
UNC's Endowment Board does
not plan any further divestment of
UNC holdings in companies doing
business in South Africa unless
campus anti-apartheid groups bring
their concerns to the Board of
Trustees, BOT Chairman Bob
Eubanks said Monday.
"Unless something is put on the
table, we don't plan to divest any
more funds," he said.
Eubanks said members of the the
Anti-Apartheid Support Group
(AASG) and the Action Against
Apartheid (AAA) have not contacted
him since the University announced
in October that it would divest from
all companies doing business in South
But members of AAA and AASG
said last week that the University has
not completely divested its holdings
in South Africa, because the guide
lines the board used to define div
estment were different from the
guidelines most anti-apartheid
The BOT uses the guidelines for
complete divestment set by the
Investor Response Research Center
(IRRC), while most anti-apartheid
groups and the United Nations follow
the criteria set by the American
Committee on Africa (ACA).
The ACA guidelines define com
plete divestment as divestment from
all companies that deal directly or
indirectly with companies in South
The IRRC definition of complete
divestment does not include divest
ment from companies who indirectly
sell their products in South Africa
through licensing and franchising
Eubanks said Monday that the
BOT used the IRRC criteria when
it divested in October because they
were the standard guidelines most
people used to determine complete
The BOT is open to discuss further
concerns that either group might
have, Eubanks said.
"If either group sees the need to
talk about the situation further, they
should come through the proper
channels," he said. "We (the board
members) are willing to discuss it with
BOT member Bobo Tanner said it
was difficult to determine which
companies still deal with South
"We could carry this issue almost
to infinity about who is dealing
directly or indirectly with South
Africa," Tanner said. "The important
thing is that the primary companies
have been divested, and I think it
should stop there."
Tanner said he opposed divestment
from the beginning.
"I think divesting wasn't in the best
interest of this University, this
country or the people of South
Africa," he said.

Teen center move opposed
By BILL HILDEBOLT
Janus Tree House, a center that
houses troubled teens, is meeting
resistance to a plan which would
move the house from Mallette
Street to the Dogwood Acres
The residents of Dogwood Acres
do not feel they have enough
information on the effects this
house would have on their neigh
borhood, said Michael Levine, an
attorney representing the
Julian Raney, a member of the
Chapel Hill Planning Board, said
that before moving, the house must
receive a special-use permit for the
new property from the Town of
The special-use permit was
approved by the planning board,
but it must still be approved by the
Leigh Gross, director of the
house, said, "The current house is
inadequate in terms of size and
condition. We don't even have
room for the office."
"(The house) is old, the halls are
narrow and the room layout is
bad," Gross said. "It leaves us very
inflexible as to the people we can
Raney said the house was limited
by law to eight residents. This
would also apply to the new house,
Levine said, "The biggest prob
lem is simply that the applicant
(Janus Tree House) is not telling
us exactly what would happen if
the move took place.
"We don't know exactly what
kind of teens would be housed
there," Levine said. "And we're not
sure about the effects on the safety
of the neighborhood and the value
of the real estate."
Another major concern of the
neighborhood was whether the
special-use permit would be legit
imate, he said.
"This permit must be in keeping
with the needs of Chapel Hill,"
Levine said. "If this house houses
teens not from Chapel Hill or at
least Orange County, then it could
be in violation of this stipulation."
The residents of the neighbor
hood do not dispute that the house
is a good cause, Levine said. There
would probably be no problem if
the house were for the retarded, but
troubled teens is a nice way of
saying a juvenile who has broken
a law, he said.
"We know what the problems
with retarded people are, and we
know exactly what they need,"
Levine said. "But troubled teens is
too vague of a description."
Raney said Janus Tree House
was currently required to house
three "Willie M." children at all
times. Levine expressed reserva
tions about that requirement.
Levine said, "Willie M. children
are not retarded, but they are anti
social and combative. They could
potentially be arsonists."
Gross said the new house would
provide office space, additional
recreation space and increased
Levine said there may be struc
tural problems with the house, also.
