About 50 people asked Sen. Terry
Sanford to increase his support for
Palestinians at a rally outside the
Omni Europa Hotel, where he
received an award by the Jewish
National Fund of America (JNF)
With signs saying "Senator San

friendship, too," Palestinian
Americans and supporters handed
Sanford a statement which asked the
senator to urge Israel's recognition of
the Palestinians right to self deter

Races for two Student Congress
seats will be settled Tuesday with a
runoff election in District 10 and a
re-election in District 6.
Also, congress will have three
empty seats when the 71st Congress
convenes in April because winners in
several districts were disqualified for
turning in financial forms too late. '
The District 10 runoff is between
candidates Donnie Esposito and
Deanna Ramey because neither
candidate received the necessary 50
percent of the votes cast in the Feb.
Tom Elliott and Ram Ramachan
dran will face each other in the
District 6 re-election because of a
problem with the Health Sciences
Library poll site.
Because of miscommunication, the
poll site was not opened until 1 p.m.,
three hours late. "Both candidates
stated that several people went to vote
and couldn't," said Wilborn Rober
son, Elections Board chairman.
Votes cast at this site were not
substantial enough to affect races for
positions other than the congres
sional seat, Roberson said.

The University should also take
advantage of safety awareness among
students, Hardin said. Recent
assaults at Duke University could
raise student security consciousness,
he said. "Young people seem to have
this idea that 'It can never happen
to me,' " he said.
Hardin described the offenses
defined in the amendments as "unac

"This did not affect any of the other
races because none of the other races
were unusually close," he said. "It
would have had to be under extreme
circumstances to affect the other
races, but we felt it did affect this
one race to some extent."
The Elections Board disqualified
Bill Brown (Dist. 2), Jim Taylor (Dist.
5), Peter Hans (Dist. 15) and Sonia
Abecassis (Dist. 7), because the
candidates did not turn in finance
forms before the 5 p.m. Wednesday
"The election laws state that the
finance forms are due the day after
the election at 5 p.m. unless they (the
candidates) talk to the elections board

are due," said Roberson.

candidates' expenditures for the

Chapel Hill, North Carolina

From the New York skyline and
Broadway to the quiet streets and
homes of Chapel Hill, 12 Soviet
students and two professors con
tinued their American tour Sunday
with feelings of excitement, anticipa
tion and disbelief.
The 14 students and faculty from
Rostov State University arrived in
Chapel Hill Sunday afternoon and
met with UNC students Sunday
evening at Cafe Giorgio's in Univer
sity Square. The Soviets will remain
with host students and professors in
Chapel Hill until March 7.
Thirteen UNC students will depart
on March 9 for the Soviet Union,
where they will spend a week and a

What began as a question-and-answer
session with actress Eva
Marie Saint Sunday night in Hanes
Art Center became a forum on
Saint, appearing as part of this
year's Fine Arts Festival, spoke
briefly to introduce the 1966
comedy film in which she appeared,
"The Russians Are Coming, The
Russians Are Coming."
The Soviets, not the Russians;
had come indeed. Six of the 12
Soviet students visiting UNC this
week as part of the UNC Soviet
Exchange attended the film and
were the center of the discussion
that Saint led after the film.
The film, set in a small New
England port during the Cold War,
tells the story of Soviet seamen
whose submarine has run aground
in U.S. seas.
The comedy starts when the
seamen are forced to enter town
to find help. The frightened towns
people, convinced they are the first
victims of a full "Russian" invasion,
take to arms and prepare to begin
World War III.
When the two sides finally
confront each other, and destruc
tion seems inevitable, a small boy
falls from a church steeple to a
precarious perch. The Soviets and
New Englanders come together to
rescue the boy and reach a common
ground at the same time. The sub
makes its way back to sea with the
floating escort of the townspeople
and all ends well.
After the film, Saint and her
husband, producerdirector Jef
frey Hayden, asked the Soviet
students to come to the front of
the auditorium to serve as a panel

Masha Bondarenko, a 22-year-old
from Rostov-on-Don, alluded to a
scene in the film where a Soviet
seaman (Alan Arkin) speaks to an
American writer (Carl Reiner) on
vacation at the shore. The two

Union, but that the sights he had
encountered on the trip had made

Kuprij said his first impression of
the United States came with the
group's visit to New York and
Broadway, where they saw the mus
ical "Cats." But Chapel Hill repres
ents a different America, he said.
"New York is a very nice city, a
very magical city, but a nicer impres
sion on me was the shows on Broad
way," he said. "IVe been thinking
about America at home, and America
to me was New York skyscrapers But
today when we arrived in Chapel Hill,
it was like a Russian orchard. This
is America to me."
Another student, Robert
Rudenko, said the group has pre-
effectively, he said.
The provision for the infliction of
mental anguish used now would not
cover all cases of racial and sexual
harassment, Byrd said. "We had no
provision in the Instrument which we
felt was adequate," he said.
Byrd said the committee had tried
to avoid infringing on students' free
speech by limiting the situations to
which the amendments apply. "We
attempted to deal with that by saying
that the activity, has to be one that
interferes with the student's (Univer
sity) employment, academic pursuits
or participation in University activ
ities," he said.

through a glass door, said
"The glass doors have been there
a long time," Bondarenko said,
referring to U.S.-Soviet relations.
"I'm so glad they are open now.

believe he is actually in America.
"I can't believe that we are in the
United States really," he said.

"We didn't want (just) any encoun--ter
between two individuals to
become an offense," he said.
Double jeopardy would not be a
problem, Byrd said. "The fact that
the individual may be tried in the
courts for crime does not remove the
University and the student courts
system from taking action on that
when the University's interest is
involved," he said.
The student attorney general and
the vice chancellor of student affairs
would determine whether those
