serve the growing Chapel Hill area,
the postal service will be opening a

The Orange County school system
is now enacting a program to keep
its young students from becoming
missing children by supplying them
with identification kits.
The kits are being provided by
Protect-A-Child, a non-profit organ

will be distributed to first-graders at
no cost to the parents or the schools,
Orange County Schools Superinten

"The program is totally voluntary,
and parents have the option of
putting as much or as little informa
tion as they wish into the kits,"
Lunsford said. "The idea (of supp
lying first-graders with the kits) first
came up this summer and a final
decision (to enact the program) was
made in early September."
Terri Welch, director of Protect-A-Child,
said the kits contain dental
charts, fingerprint cards, hair samples
and sheets that teach parents and
children what to do if the child

The office will serve people in the

beneficiaries of the office, he said. The

In an effort to raise money for the

Village Companies will bring John
Denver to the Smith Center for a
holiday benefit concert in December.
Jim Heavner, president of the
Village Companies and the initiator
of the event, said he believes the
concert will be an excellent oppor

Proceeds from the concert will be
used for a building fund for the
hungry and the homeless.

from the concert will help solve the
recent debate over the location of the

The new post office is not the only

for the area. The main post office will
undergo renovations at the beginning
of next year.
"The building will get a new

Heavner was contacted about the
possibility of hosting John Denver

he felt Denver would be the perfect
entertainer for this kind of event.
"He is associated with the world

to have him waive the percentage of
profits that he would normally take
because he was supporting the move

Bernard Segal, vice president of the
fund-raising committee of the Inter

also would not take their usual cut
of the profits.
If Denver is able to bring in 4,500
people, the shelter could expect a

THE WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL STUDIES CENTER
Several colleges of Oxford University have invited The Washington International Studies Center
(WISC) to recommend qualified students to study for one year or for one or two terms. Lower
Junior status is required, and graduate study is available. Students are directly enrolled in their
colleges and receive transcripts from their Oxford college; this is NOT a program conducted by a
U.S. college in Oxford. Oxford colleges are accredited by the U.S. Dept. of Education to
accept students with Guaranteed Student Loans. Multi-national student housing and social
activities are offered, and cultural tours are conducted by WISC. A special summer session is
directed by WISC.
The Washington International Studies Center offers summer internships with Congress, with the
White House, with the media and with think tanks. Government and Journalism courses are taught
by senior-level government officials, who are also scholars, and by experienced journalists. All
