Terrence Boyle does not move the
trial date from Monday to allow
Hatcher's attorney to be present.

20 hostages and using firearms.
The men, who call themselves
Tuscaroran Indians, took hostages

Feb. 1 to protest racial injustice
and corruption in the county. If

Bill Kunstler, who would

to delay the trial, but Boyle has

UNC's black students are con
cerned about the lack of a per
manent budget and adequate
space for the Black Cultural
Center (BCC), Black Student
Movement President Kenneth
Perry said Tuesday.
Perry said Donald Boulton,vice
chancellor and dean of student
affairs, told him in a letter Monday
that the center is expected to run
on donations for the next three
But Boulton said Wednesday
the letter did not say the center
is expected to run on donations.
There is already a permanent
budget set up to pay the BCC
director and secretary and a
modest budget set aside for pro
gramming, he said.
That modest budget will be
augmented by gifts from sources
like the chancellor and the athletic
department, Boulton said.
In addition, the BCC has a
finance committee that will work
on a permanent programming
budget, he said.

be tried Monday," said Assistant
U.S. Attorney John Bruce.
"If the trial is not delayed for
a few weeks, Eddie Hatcher will
have no one to defend him. He
will have no lawyer," Nakell said.
"The court is basically forcing
Hatcher to be without defense. If
Bill Kunstler's motion to continue
is denied, Hatcher will be on his
own," said Alan Gregory of the
Christie Institute in Carrboro,
which is defending Jacobs.
The court is forcing Hatcher to
be without representation because
no one else can defend him,
"Kunstler's associate, Ronald
Kuby, is not authorized to defend
Hatcher because his temporary
status has been revoked by the
court. Kuby is not a member of
the North Carolina Bar. Eddie
Hatcher could be standing by
himself in court Monday," Gre
Their defense attorneys are
asking the government to reveal
evidence of corruption and drug
trafficking in Lumberton, but the
investigators are not being coop

the Robesonian to "reveal the
corruption and expose thedrug;

Andresen said the town council
does not have a clear growth policy.
"We spend an enormous amount
of staff time on this, and I'm not sure
what we've got," she said. "The
argument could be made that we're
not that far from buildout now."

report predicts that in 2025 Chapel
Hill will reach "buildout" the
"This is as large a budget as any

Last spring's decision by the
housing department to change the all
male status of Teague Residence Hall
continues to be met with student
acceptance, Jimmy Randolph, Res
idence Hall Association president,
said Wednesday. -
"The issue is pretty much resolved
with us," he said. "We're now working
with housing to make Teague a great
coed residence hall."
The traditional all-male status of
Teague Residence Hall ended May
The decision came after an April
21 incident involving Teague resi
dents who were celebrating the last
day of classes. After some residents
who were drinking beer moved
outside the building to play frisbee,
a frisbee struck a passing car con
taining two black women.
When the women got out of the
car to complain, one resident appar
ently either spat on one of the women
or spilled beer on her during the
The complaint soon reached Iris
Hunt, the area director of Scott
Residence College, who told the
residents to go back inside.
Some of the residents made racial
remarks towards Hunt, and the
harassment continued until May 3 in

ings on her apartment door, as well
as threats over the telephone.

American education is in need of
drastic reform, nationally-renowned
philosopher Mortimer Adler told a
full house in Hanes Art Center
Auditorium on Wednesday evening.
"Our political institutions cannot
survive unless we start producing
more thinking individuals," Adler
said in his speech, "Reforming
Education: No Quick Fix."
Adler is in Chapel Hill to mark
the opening of the National Center
for the Paideia Program. The center
opened at UNC on Sept. 1.
Adler is the primary author of a
blueprint for U.S. educational reform
called "The Paideia Proposal." The
Paideia Proposal outlines the method
that Adler hopes will produce more
"thinking individuals" and a more
democratic method of education.
Adler's proposal comes from the
ideal of the Bohemian philosopher
John Amos Comenius, who wrote
that the first wish of society should
be "that all men should be educated
fully to full humanity." "Paideia"
refers to a Greek word meaning the
upbringing of children.
Adler said all children should
receive the same education. "Today
society still differentiates between
children as educable, and trainable,"
he said. "We believe that all children
are educable even if not to the same
: In order for Adler's ideal education
to exist, he said a number pf steps

must change its belief that the teacher
is the primary source of learning and
instead define a teacher as a coach.

more parking in town would encour
age more residents to drive, resulting
in the same problem on a larger scale,
she said. :
When faced with that question in
the past, town planners tended to
support solutions that encouraged the
use of public transportation,
The comprehensive planning
report suggests that "Parking supply
should be minimized to reduce
automobile use, particularly in areas
of large concentrations of develop
ment and activity centers."

comes from the working of the
student's own mind," he said. Today's
learning is memorization a passive
rather than active process, Adler said.
Adler said he wants to change the
entire structure of education from
kindergarten through 12th grade.
Instead ol memonzing textbooks and
lectures in order to pass tests, students
would practice thinking, reading,
writing and listening through semin
ars, coaching, Socratic questioning
and active participation.
Students would study languages,
literature, fine arts, math, science and
social studies, he said. Instead of
numeric grades, students would get '
a narrative grade that analyzes' their
Children would be graded related
to their own abilities, rather than to
the abilities of other children. Three
types of grades would be given:
failure, when a student does not
perform at the level of his or her
ability; pass, when a student performs
at the level that is expected; and
honors, when a student out-performs
Adler said his reforms will prob
ably not come into being across the
country for a long time, but they are
being experimented with in 25 North
Carolina schools and another 25
schools in cities including Austin,
Chicago, Cincinnati and New York.
"I used the Paideia method in
California," one speaker in the
audience said. "It works. I had ninth

applying it to other plays. ,

Herzenberg said such a strategy
may be the best available.
"There's only sq much you can do
to encourage people to change their
behavior," he said.
Andresen said one possible solu
tion to the growth problem might be
an allocation system, based on an
annual review of available resources.
Under this system, a certain
amount of development would be
allocated every year based on
resource projections. The system
