Foirmer ageoH: condemns Q A actions By BETH RHEA Staff Writer 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 courtesy review agreement was a compromise solution stemming Human Rights Week with applause. 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. "I believe the U.S. needs an intelligence agency one that keeps you like an artist.

Chapel Hill, North Carolina (Q)rQ)h(D)nriore u n By JENNY CLONINGER Assistant University Editor 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. Sophomores made up 40 percent McGCopley to reappear j before graduate coiooi: By JUSTIN McGUIRE Assistant University Editor UNC graduate student Dale McKinley will face charges before the . Graduate . Student Court Tuesday, more than a month after walking out on his first hearing and refusing to return. McKinley faces four charges related to two CIA protests last year. He originally appeared before the court Oct. 20 . but left the hearing when the court refused to allow him to discuss CIA activities as part of his defense. McKinley said Thursday that he will attend this hearing because he has additional statements to make to the court. On principle, McKinley said he still doesn't accept the court's ruling. "There's a lot of other things I have coyote Carrboro alderman Judith Wegner said the primary value of the courtesy review is its flexibility. Because the review area is not limited, both counties will submit all project plans that might be considered relevant to neighboring jurisdictions, she said. Planners will review the plans and notify elected officials of any item of He said the American "elite" felt the CIA was necessarybecause it was afraid popular revolutions in Third World countries would inspire Amer ica's underprivileged to revolt also. Agee said such revolutions caused "the ruling elite to quake. "We have our own Third World in this country," he said. "Revolutions in these countries (Nicaragua, Hon duras, El Salvador) have an appeal to our poor. . . . These revolutions are indeed an unusual and inordinate threat not militarily, but by example." Agee said he was raised in the same segment of the American populace that he condemns. "I was in fact a privileged bene ficiary of the system," he said. "I went to private schools, and I grew up in a 'country club' atmosphere." Agee said he received a degree in philosophy from Notre Dame, but that when he decided to go into the CIA after college, he "didnt under stand" what the CIA was about. "I went into the agency as a lamb, as a true believer, by the way," he said. 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. Guaranteed sophomore housing would fill the empty spaces, thereby lowering fees for residents, Rustin said. RHA opposes the proposal to say."

"That's a major aspect of my defense, but there are many, many others." McKinley faces charges of obstructing the normal operations of the University as a result of a Feb. 23 incident at the University Motor Inn. He also has been charged with obstruction, trespassing and disor derly conduct as a result of an April IS demonstration at Hanes Hall. If McKinley is found guilty of either obstruction charge, the max imum penalty is suspension or expul sion.

The Town of Chapel Hill man dated that the municipalities begin Parade to eat Book weekend By JAMES COBLIN Staff Writer 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 Thursday. 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 bia Street and into Big Fraternity Court. The Beat Dook Queen will be crowned at the beginning of the parade. Pi Kappa Alpha invited all 16 of the recognized campus sororities to enter nominees for the Ralph NewsSportsArts . 962-0245 Business Advertising 962-1163 may because it is unfair and the existing ' system is sufficient, Randolph said.
