At the Cabaret in the Union, about 20 costumed students gathered for a contest at 9 p.m. Despite the meager turnout, the participants were enthusiastic. Mark Kernodle of Chapel Hill dressed for the weather and paraded as Aquaman. Besides his neon-bright wetsuit, two stars bobbed as antennae on his head. Kernodle said his costume was perfectly suited to the weather. "I'm very comfortable," he said. "On a night like this it's great." The weather was admittedly a disappointment, said Kernodle, who jokingly called it "the worst Halloween weather in 50 years." It wasn't going to put a damper on his plans, however. "I'm ready to swim downtown," he declared. His pal, a Grim Reaper going for his MBA, said he'd jump on Aquaman's back, and they'd make their way to Franklin Street. Among the other bizarre cos See HALLOWEEN page 4 4 (G rotor to LI CD A irecMtaeimtt By WILL SPEARS Staff Writer Members of the CIA Action Com mittee will hold an educational protest against the presence of CIA recruiters on campus Wednesday, CIAAC members said Monday. The protest will take place both inside and outside Hanes Hall, where CIA recruiters will be interviewing students, said CIAAC member Joey Templeton. The group will distribute fact sheets containing information about the CIA and its activities; it will also act out a funeral scene, Templeton said. "It will be very visual and dra matic," she said. The protesters will go to "the extreme limits of their rights," but do not plan to do anything illegal, Templeton said. "It will be a non-disruptive pro test," she said. "We don't want anyone else in jail." CIAAC member Dale McKinley was sentenced to 21 days in Orange County Jail for violating a "prayer for judgment continued" ruling made in January. McKinley was released Monday after serving nine days of the sentence. The group will also distribute copies of its official statement of opposition to the CIA at the protest, she said. The statement says the CIAAC affirms the rights of individuals wishing to interview with CIA repre sentatives and does not object to See PROTEST page 5 McECooulley released airier serving bsM f seunfteiiuce From staff reports UNC student activist Dale McKin ley was released from Orange County Jail Monday morning after serving about half of a 21 -day sentence resulting from his protests of CIA recruitment on campus. McKinley, a UNC graduate stu dent in political science, was sen tenced in district court Oct. 12 for violating the terms of a "prayer for judgment continued" ruling he received in a January trial. It is normal procedure for people to serve only half their sentences if officials judge their behavior to be good, McKinley said Monday. McKinley entered Orange County Jail on Oct. 22, and served nine days of his sentence. Six students, including McKinley, were arrested on Oct. 28, 1987, when they chained themselves together to block the entrance to rooms in Hanes Hall where CIA recruiters were conducting interviews. On Jan. 14, Orange County Dis trict Court 'Judge Stanley Peele entered a "prayer for judgment continued" ruling on McKinley and the other students, saying they were guilty of disorderly conduct but would not be punished. Under the terms of the ruling, the judge said he would not enter a conviction on the students' records unless they were convicted of another violation within a year. In August, McKinley and another protester were convicted of trespass ing as a result of an April 15 protest of CIA recruitment in the Hanes Hall offices of University Career Planning and Placement Service. McKinley said his lawyers told jail officials that he had many obliga tions. He said he had to teach a class today, and this may have influenced their decision to release him early. McKinley said he would not par ticipate in activities scheduled for today by CIA Action Committee members to protest the CIA's recruit ment visit on Nov. 2. But he will take part in protests on Wednesday, the day of the CIA's scheduled visit, he said. "I'm going to be a participant in what the group has decided to do." Members of the Chapel Hill Coa lition for Freedom to Dissent, who have held a vigil in front of the Franklin Street Post Office since McKinley's sentence began, will meet today to plan their next move, CFD member Carlos Cerezo-Suarez said. "Right now, there are no plans to stop," he said Monday night. "The coalition wasn't founded to defend Dale. The broader issue is campus democracy." Dddum services solffer m ii from seaftomg sfaoota ge By JUSTIN McGUIRE Assistant University Editor The University must provide ade quate seating space in Lenoir and Chase dining halls if Carolina Dining Services is to be a money-making enterprise, officials said Monday. "Lack of seats is probably the most pressing problem we have in food services," said Vice Chancellor James Cansler, chairman of the food ser vices advisory committee. Thomas Shetley, director of aux iliary services, said the three dining services that have operated on cam pus during the last decade have lost a total of $1.5 million. A lack of seats has been one of the main reasons for the money loss, he said. "We have narrowed the cause down to this: They are not generating enough sales," Shetley said. "People are poking their noses in here (Lenoir) at noon and walking away." Lenoir's main dining room is so crowded during the lunch rush that people have to leave and eat else where, Cansler said. And Chase has the same problem during the dinner rush, he said. But Chase is practically empty during lunch, and Lenoir is not as crowded during dinner, he said. "The need for additional facilities is clearly recognized, and the Univer sity has to recognize it if food services is to survive viably on campus," Cansler said. The advisory committee has also mentioned lack of adequate space as a problem in its long-term plan, a report on the service's operation. Bill Dux director of Carolina Dining Services, said Friday that sales would increase if more seats were added. "If we had more facilities, we could do more business," he said. "People see the lines and turn around and leave and decide to go somewhere else." Cansler agreed that adding facil ities would increase sales. "WeVe got to find a way to increase sales," he said.

Waddell pleaded cuiltv two months ago to embezzlement and other charges in connection with a $2 million investment-theft scam. The sentencing was delayed at his request so that he could present a restitution plan. Orange-Chatham County District Attorney Carl Fox said Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert Farmer sentenced Waddell to two consecutive six-year active prison terms despite the argument by Wad dell's attorney that a shorter term would allow his client to make restitution payments to victims sooner. Farmer denied the request for a reduced sentence based on restitution because Waddell could not show enough capital assets, Fox said. Waddell will be eligible for parole in four to five years, he said. Waddell was an investo'. -developer who owned four Chapel Hill busi nesses before he confessed to embez zling $2 million from 16 of his clients between 1981 and January 1988. It was one of the biggest such cases in North Carolina history. In the scam, money from the retirement accounts of Waddell's clients went into an unaudited bank account that he used to fund some of his development projects and finance his expensive lifestyle. He used a secret bank account to make phony interest payments to his victims. Waddell's legal problems .have slowed progress on Westcourt, a combination retail, office and resi dential complex that was planned to help revive the economy of West Franklin Street. One of the project's principle backers, Waddell has since been removed as a partner. Waddell pleaded guilty to 14 counts of embezzlement, four counts of obtaining property by false pre- See WADDELL page 3 Repybflocaos' adtooiras alt rally aoger cammpy Demmocrate By JAMES BURROUGHS Staff Writer A verbal agreement between lead ers of UNC's Young Democrats and College Republicans may have been broken when Republican group members disrupted the State Demo cratic Youth Rally in the Pit Oct. 25, Young Democrat leaders said Friday. Leaders of the two political groups tgreed not to disrupt organized events sponsored by the other group, said Wayne Goodwin, president of the UNC Young Democrats. But College Republicans Chair man Bill Taylor said the agreement applied only to indoor meetings, not to events held in the Pit, which he said were "fair game." During last week's rally, College Republicans held posters in support of their candidates, chanted and disrupted many of the speeches, including that of Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton. The agreement between the groups didn't apply to the Pit rally, Taylor said. "The Pit has always been a place of free speech, and I cant see a partisan political rally as an exception to that tradition," he said. "If they are upset with us for going out and showing support for our candidates, well, that's politics, especially in the Pit." The news media reported the disruptions at the rally, Goodwin said. "Posters are one thing, but heckling and jeering are another," he said. "(The media) highlighted just as much the heckling as it did what the rally was all about." Both Goodwin and Taylor had expressed hope at the beginning of the semester that "the year would move along smoothly," Goodwin said. Both students said they hope the relations between the two organiza tions remain positive. "I just hope this doesn't lead to any further deterioration of our relation ship," Goodwin said. The agreement resulted from a Young Democrats meeting last spring at which several College Republicans jeered Congressman David Price during his speech, Goodwin said. Taylor said Saturday that he entered the agreement with Goodwin, and that he was displeased with the incident at the Price speech last See RALLY page 3 While there is time, let's go out and do everything.
