UNC's Air Force program will not
be phased out by spring 1989, Air
Force officials announced Monday.
The Department of Defense
announced Jan. 27 that 37 Air Force
ROTC programs, including UNC's,
would be closed or consolidated to
reduce the number of officers and
create a more efficient program.

A theatrical protest by CIA
Action Committee members in
Lenoir Hall led to a confrontation
with UNC police Wednesday.
As part of the group's week-long
CIA protest "Harvest of Sorrow,"
the dramatic presentation was
intended to increase campus
awareness of the CIA's worldwide

eating in the cafeteria had com

theater." Cafeteria officials asked
the demonstrators to stop banging
on the cafeteria's doors, windows
and walls before requesting police
assistance, he said.
"The protesters said, 4If you
want us to stop, then call the
police,' and that's what we did,"
But group member Dale
McKinley said the cafeteria offi
cials did not talk to the protesters
before calling the police.
"It would be kind of insane for
us to say, 'Go get the police if you
want us to stop,' " McKinley said.
"I think they're just looking for
a way out of this."
As group member Jerry Jones
announced the conclusion of the
demonstration, he was seized by
a police officer. "He grabbed me
and told me to stop speaking,"

Commy unity marches foir women's safety
By BRENDA CAMPBELL
About 150 students and commun
ity residents gathered Wednesday
night to march in support of victims
of rape and sexual assault during the
Campus Y Women's Forum's Take
Back the Night rally.
The march was intended to raise
community awareness of rape and
sexual assault, said Women's Forum
co-chairwoman Jaye Sitton.
"We want to provide support for
every woman who is victimized
because we can't walk through places
like the arboretum," she said. "No
place is a women safe. People need
to know we are aware there is a
problem and we are concerned."
Take Back the Night originated
during the women's movement of the
1960s, Sitton said. The name is meant
to affirm that all people have the right
to walk during the night and day as
they see fit, she said.
Marchers gathered in Coker
Arboretum and listened to speakers.
Local folk musician Tracy Drach also
performed. Participants then
marched along Franklin Street and
down Columbia Street, ending up in
In the song "From the Distance,"
Drach sang, "From a distance there

Col. J. Harry Stow, Air Force
ROTC chairman, said Wednesday
that he was happy the Air Force
decided to continue the program
because of the students who would
have been affected.
"This is a great opportunity for
students from the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill to earn a
commission from the Air Force and
said. "We went through everbody's
budget fairly, keeping the limit in
mind but not following it."
The problem became obvious to
the committee Sunday night, with
$27,000 left to allocate and nine more
groups with funding requests, Ferris
said. Distributing the remaining
money evenly between the remaining
organizations would have been
unfair, because the committee had
not based the recommendations for
the earlier groups on the remaining
