QA protest eodls do student arrests
The Daily Tar HeelMonday, April 18, 19883
By BRIAN McCOLLUM
Eight UNC students were carried
out of Hanes Hall and arrested for
trespassing Friday after a protest
against CIA employment recruiting.
The students lay on the floor of
Career Planning and Placement
Services' working area while holding
hands and singing protest hymns.
They were arrested after refusing
office officials' orders to leave the
The protesters had marched to the
office on the second floor a half-hour
earlier, and spent most of the time
reading and answering questions
about the CIA.
University police carried the stu
dents out of the building when they
refused to walk on their own. The
protesters were released on a $200
unsecured bond Friday afternoon.
The students arrested were senior
Graham Entwistle, junior Lisa
House, junior Jerry Jones, junior
Kasey Jones, graduate student Dale
McKinley, evening college student
Steve Sullivan, sophomore Joey
Templeton and senior Amy
Entwistle, McKinley and Tem
pleton were also arrested last October
for blocking the entrances to rooms
where CIA recruiters were holding
Sharon Wiatt, the office's associate
director, said she received a tip about
the protest twenty minutes before the
students marched to the office. The
demonstration did not anger her, she
"There's a certain freedom of
speech this University upholds and
we're complying," she said. "It went
smoothly, all things considered."
During the demonstration, the
protesters condemned the career
planning office for permitting the
CIA to recruit students. Students
read reports listing various alleged
crimes of the CIA, including geno
cide, minings and worldwide covert
The protesters occasionally pulled
CIA-related files and videotapes from
cabinets in the office. At one point,
office officials locked several file
Protester Jerry Jones said lodging
a protest against the CIA outweighed
any disruptions caused by the
"It's a question of proportions," he
said. "I'm sure we're not pleasing
those who work in this office, but
sitting here is the least we can do."
Friday's events marked the end of
the "Harvest of Sorrow" week,
sponsored by the CIA Action Com
mittee (CIAAC). On Tuesday, police
forcefully removed CIAAC members
from Lenoir Dining Hall after
workers complained about a "theat
rical protest" there.
Junior and bystander Charles
Balan, who directed several questions
to the protesters during the demon
stration, said he disapproved of the
manner of the CIAAC protest.
"I don't agree with them occupying
the workplace of the secretaries," he
said. "It's kind of selfish of them.
They've got the right to protest, but
not when they impede the rights of
Many UNC students and admin
istrators have expressed increasingly
negative feelings toward the CIAAC
and its actions, saying the protesters
are offending many at the University.
"It's getting old, and there are a
lot of people sick and tired of it,"
said freshman Brian Adair. "The CIA
has a right to come here like any other
group. The protesters are infringing
on a lot of people's rights."
Student Congress completes budget process
By JENNY CLONINGER
and JUSTIN McGUIRE
Assistant University Editors
The Student Congress allocated
more than $183,000 to 29 campus
organizations during final budget
hearings Sunday, leaving surplus
funds of $673.
Several groups' budgets generated
debate and or special amendments
before they were approved by the
The Yackety Yack's photography
supply category was raised to $12,200
from the finance committee's final
recommendation of $10,000, but a
hike in the subscription price com
pensated for the raise.
Curtis Small (Dist. 5), who pro
posed the changes, suggested that the
price of the yearbook increase from
$22 to $24.50.
"We would have liked to have kept
the cost at $22," said Kelley King,
Yackety Yack editor. "We're afraid
this might hurt sales." Congress
voted to allocate $800 to the Black
Student Movement (BSM) for Pro
ject Uplift, a minority recruitment
The money was cut from the
budget of the Executive Branch of
Student Government in an emer
gency meeting of the Finance Com
mittee Wednesday. Congress
members said then that they cut the
money because the BSM and the
Carolina Indian Circle provide sim
iliar recruitment programs.
The BSM and the Executive
Branch will work together on the
Congress also voted to decrease the
BSM's donation category from
$1,000 to $500. The group will receive
$17,161 in Student Government
funds, $1,300 more than the finance
The Carolina Indian Circle's print
ing and publicity category was
returned to the Finance Committee's
original recommendation of $765
from the $665 allocated during the
committee's emergency meeting.
"There are few groups at this point
that need funding more than the
Carolina Indian Circle," Brock Dick
inson (Dist. 13) said. "The recent
happenings in Robeson County are
part of one of the most pressing issues
North Carolina will have to face this
Some questions surrounded the
Student Part-Time Employment
Services' (SPTES) lack of fund
raising income. Members of the
organization disagreed with represen
tatives' suggestions that the group
plan fund-raising programs or charge
for their job placement services.
"Our job is to help students find
jobs and we can't do that if we're out
trying to raise a lot of money," said
Lori Smith, one of SPTES's repre
sentatives. "Some students look for
jobs to pay for beer, but more
students look for jobs to pay for rent,
food and tuition. We can't charge
students to use our services."

State officials say air quality controls poor Baketball b the byffi
By HELLE NIELSEN
North Carolina must improve its
plans for air quality control for its
larger metropolitan areas, since
several counties have violated federal
standards for ozone and carbon
monoxide concentrations, state offi
"The standards were set up to
protect air quality," said Ogden
Gerald, chief of the N.C. Division of
Environmental Management's air
quality section. "As far as the federal
government is concerned, we are not
The Mecklenburg and Wake
Durham metropolitan areas exceeded
acceptable levels for carbon monox
ides and ozone in 1987, Gerald said.
The Environmental Protection
Agency's (EPA) standard for carbon
monoxide is nine parts per million
(ppm) over an eight-hour average,
and the ozone standard is 0.12 ppm,
said EPA statistician Warren Freas.
If an area exceeds the carbon
monoxide limit more than once a year
or the ozone limit more than once
a year over a three-year average, it
violates the EPA standards, Freas
The problem areas in North Caro
lina were just over these levels in 1987,
Gerald said. The highest carbon
monoxide concentration measured in
the Raleigh-Durham area was 10.6
ppm, and ozone was measured to be
0.129 ppm, he said.
North Carolina's carbon monoxide
problem is quite serious, but the
"ozone violation problem is not yet
as traumatic," said John Bachmann,
an environmental engineer with the
EPA's office of air quality standards.
Bachmann said while ozone is

dangers, because it enters the blood
and reduces the ability of the red
blood cells to carry oxygen, he said.
The Clean Air Act requires the
EPA to declare as "non-attainment"
areas those that do not meet the
standards for emission of air pollut
ants, Gerald said.
The Wake-Durham metropolitan
area, which includes Durham, Frank
lin, Orange and Wake counties, is
expected to get on the "non
attainment" lists for carbon monox
ide and ozone this year, Gerald said.
The Mecklenburg metropolitan
area, . comprising six counties,, will
also be on both lists, Gerald said.
Mecklenburg County is already on
the carbon monoxide list, he said.
When an area gets on a "non
attainment" list, the state involved
must develop a plan for improving
its air quality to meet the EPA
standards, said Bachmann.
"(North Carolina) will have about
nine months to come up with (Clean
Air Act) implementation plan revi
sions," Bachmann said.
The plan should detail what emis
sion reductions are necessary and
outline regulations to produce these
reductions, said Tom Lyttle of EPA's
Southeastern office in Atlanta, Ga.
Lyttle said expansion of car inspec
tion and maintenance programs and
controls on industrial sources can be
implemented by local governments to
improve air quality.
Motor vehicles are responsible for
90 percent of carbon monoxide
emissions, he said.
Half of the ozone emissions in
metropolitan areas come from motor
vehicles and the other half from
stationary sources, including industry
and consumption of personal pro
ducts such as spray paint and de
odorants, he said.
"Each individual does not add that
much," Lyttle said. "But it does add
up to a significant amount."
Bachmann said it will be hard to
maintain air quality as growth con
tinues in the metropolitan areas.
"(With continued) explosive
growth, people have to think about
what we are going to do to meet
attainment," he said.
