Foirmer ageoH: condemns Q A actions
By BETH RHEA
The University shouldn't allow the
CIA to recruit on campus because it
participates in illegal activities, and
students should protest CIA recruit
ment to prevent the organization
from returning to UNC, Philip Agee
told about 500 students in Hamilton
Hall Thursday night.
Agee, a former CIA agent and an
outspoken opponent of the agency's
activities, drew a crowd that clogged
the aisles and lined the walls of the
auditorium. The speech was the last
major event of Human Rights Week,
sponsored by the Campus Y.
"I suppose you think there's
nothing you can do," Agee said.
"That's not true. Student protesters
brought an end to the Vietnam War.
Active opposition to CIA recruitment
can also be successful."
The fact that the CIA is an official
government agency does not excuse
its illegal activities, Agee said.
"Do not let a university president
tell you that (CIA recruitment is
acceptable) because the CIA is a
government organization." The
audience responded to this statement

The , agreement establishes a pro
cess for planners and politicians from
both counties to review and comment
on proposed developments outside of
their jurisdictions, said Chapel Hill
Town Council member Julie
Andresen, a member of the group.
The courtesy review agreement was
a compromise solution stemming
Human Rights Week
Allowing the CIA to recruit "for
Murder, Inc., is an insult to the
University," he said. .
The University must not allow the
CIA to "try to entice the best of
American youth into that kind of
work," Agee said. "The University
has to discriminate."
Student protest is a crucial factor
in deterring the CIA from recruiting
on campus. "Militant action will stop
them," he said. Then he smiled,
confessing that he hated to quote
Ronald and Nancy Reagan, and said,
"When they come around again, 'Just
say no.' "
Most of Agee's speech was spent
recounting illegal activities he said the
CIA had been involved in since the
agency's inception in 1947.
But in response to a question after
the speech, Agee said he wasn't
opposed to the United States having
an intelligence agency.

intelligence agency one that keeps

The Department of University
Housing presented a proposal for
guaranteed sophomore housing
beginning in 1988-89 to the Residence
Hall Association Board of Governors
Thursday at its regular meeting.
But RHA has voted against. the
same proposal for the past two years,
said Jimmy Randolph, RHA presi
dent. The governors are concerned
that the proposed system is unfair to
juniors and seniors, and that it will
displace many upperclassmen while
favoring freshmen and sophomores.
The proposed change to the 12-year-old
system is designed to sim
plify the lottery and sign-up process,
reduce the time used to implement
the process and reduce the stress
experienced by residents involved in
the lotteries, said Collin Rustin,
associate director of housing.

Agee said such revolutions caused
"the ruling elite to quake.

Agee said he received a degree in

of the 1987 and 1988 waiting lists for
on-campus housing, Rustin said in
the proposal. "We see that the real
demand for residence hall space is
overwhelmingly from the freshman
and sophomore classes."
According to the proposed system,
rising sophomores would be allowed
to return to the residence hall space
they occupied as freshmen by sub
mitting an application contract to
their area director by a specified date.
Their applications would not enter
the lottery, Rustin said.
Because of new spaces in Carmi
chael Residence Hall, built in 1986,
and the high level of competition
from off-campus housing options, the
occupancy rate of residence halls has
not been at 100 percent since 1985.

The spirited UNC-Duke rivalry
will continue when the 55th annual
Beat Dook weekend kicks off
today with the Beat Dook Parade,
the event's organizers said
The parade has been held since
1933. The unique name originated
when someone "misspelled" the
name of the rival school, said
Christopher Morris, a member of
Pi Kappa Alpha, the fraternity
which is sponsoring the weekend.
The parade will begin at 3 p.m.
in front of Carmichael Gym. The
parade route follows a path down
Raleigh Street, left onto Franklin
Street, then left again onto Colum

The Beat Dook Queen will be
