(GoflDty plea entered do Pentagon case
From Associated Press reports
WASHINGTON A defense
consultant who played a central role
in the Pentagon purchasing scandal
pleaded guilty Monday to bribing a
Navy official to obtain classified
information about multimillion
William Parkin, 65, entered the
pleas before U.S. District Judge
Claude Hilton nine days after he was
hospitalized for what sources said was
an overdose of pills. He was sche
duled to go on trial April 3 with four
Parkin's plea bargaining arrange
ment was the latest in the govern
ment's investigation into the Penta
gon's $150 billion-a-year
procurement system. No one has been
tried yet in the case, which was
launched in June 1986.
"Guilty," Parkin responded three
times in a soft voice when Hilton
asked him how he pleaded. The
bearded businessman, standing next
to his attorney, Gerard Treanor Jr.,
looked down most of the time.
Parkin pleaded guilty to bribing a
public official, conspiimy to defraud
the United States and wire fraud. In
exchange for his picas, the govern
ment dropped other charges against
him. He also agreed to cooperate with
Parkin, who worked in the Navy's
Joint Cruise Missile Project from
1977 until 1983, faces a maximum of
25 years in jail and fines of up to
$750,000. Hilton set sentencing for
U.S. Attorney Joseph Aronica said
he was pleased with Parkin's plea.
On Friday, Stuart Berlin, the Navy
official Parkin admitted bribing,
pleaded guilty in the case, as did
Teledyne Electronics of Newbury
Park, Calif., a company that had
agreed to pay Parkin $160,000 for his
help in obtaining a contract.
Teledyne Electronics, a division of
Teledyne Industries, actually turned
over about $30,000 to Parkin between
November 1985 and May 1988.

allows Frye to see all sides of things,
but also to admit her limits, he said.
"I've never seen Lisa try to talk about
something she doesn't know anything
Frye said she demanded a lot from
all people in her life, including her
friends. Garrison and, above all,
herself. Being "impatient to get things
done," a quality learned from her
mother, is the best way to describe
her work ethic.
But Frye tries to understand that
she cannot expect people to be as
dedicated as she is, especially within
the CAA, where positions are held
on a voluntary basis. Being very
appreciative of others' hard work is
an important part of her leadership
position, she said.
Recognizing when to worry and
when to relax is one ability Frye
would like to work on, especially after
the advice from friends who observe
her during her busy daily schedule.
"I want to be sure I have a balance
between working hard and between
enjoying the job."
Lisa's ability to become totally
committed to a project while deeply
caring about the people involved
makes her a success as a person, said
Lynn Frye, Lisa's father. "She puts
her w hole self into her job or whatever
she's striving to accomplish."
Working hard to become class
valedictorian in high school is only
one example of Frye's achievements,
but presenting her graduation speech
without using notes showed she was
truly dedicated, he said.
Frye is intelligent, mature, organ
ized and creative, said CAA president
Carol Geer, who worked with her.
"She is able to attract really good
people to work for her."
Her ability to interact with people
on both a personal and professional
level will greatly assist Frye in her
position as CAA president, Geer said,
"She's going to be able to motivate
a lot of people. Her maturity is going
to enable her to work with the
administration very well."
Although Frye has small-town
roots, she has a desire to accomplish
and is determined to make a name
for herself, said Jimmy Burns, a
sophomore English major from
Asheville. Burns said he first met Frye
when they both lived in Morrison
Residence Hall last year.
"She was the kind of person I came
to Carolina to meet."
Burns said the CAA campaign
allowed a lot of students to see how
well Frye could relate to people. "I
think a lot of people were struck with
Lisa's ability to talk with them. 1 think
that's a leadership skill that makes
for a wonderful friend as well."
After the election, Burns said Frye
told him that the position of CAA
president would finally give her the
chance to do something toward
improving student life.
The most outstanding achievement
in Frye's life has been her election
as CAA president, she said, because
it was the culmination of years of hard
work in many areas.
"I think it's my greatest achieve
ment because the fact that I won the
race stemmed from the other things
I'd done," she said.
But Frye has experienced her share
of being in a leadership position
where she is unable to please every
one. As captain of the varsity cheer
leading squad her senior year in high
school, Frye was concerned more
with what the girls thought of her and
less about the job to be done, she
"My priorities that year shouldn't
have been 'What do these girls think
of me?' but 'Are we getting these jobs
done?' I learned that when you're a
leader, your job in my mind
is to foster leadership in other people.
I didn't feel like I did that my senior
Frye said the one thing that keeps
her sane throughout the stresses in
her life is her relationship with

Let's compare the cost of Granville vs. Apartments:
9 mos. rent, your share
Food (all meals)
Utilitities, your share
Gas, for commuting
Granville appears to be more expensive, but really isn't. We have
n't included other things here which will cost you money in an apart
ment that you may not have considered, like furniture, toilet paper,
light bulbs, cleaning products, a shower curtain, kitchen utensils,
and possibly a vacuum cleaner. And have you thought about one of
your roommates moving out, or suddenly coming up short of money,
leaving you with the responsibility of hisher rent (ever have a hard
time collecting just part of the phone bill)? At Granville, all of your
living expenses are included in one payment, and you are respon
sible only for your own room and board.
Plus, in Granville Towers, you have to convenience of being walk
ing distance to classes and downtown, thus not having to ride the
bus, or trying to park your car in a town that presents parking night
marcs. You also have your food cooked for you, and you can "Dine
Anytime," even on weekends. Someone even comes by each week to
straighten up your room and clean your bathroom for you. And your
own study room, fitness rooms, computer center, activities...
Dollar for dollar, Granville Towers is the best buy!
Garrison. Although they are exact
opposites, over the years they have
reached "a happy medium."
"(Lisa and I) are exact opposites,"
Garrison said. "It was kind of hard
on the relationship at first, but with
all the give and take, it has done a
lot for both of us."
Frye said she wanted to attend law
school after graduating. Having a
private law practice in a small,
Southern town would be ideal, she
"I'm very happy with living in the
South and living in a smaller area.
IVe never made much money 111
never miss it."
During what spare time she has,
Frye likes to play the piano, which
is "great for tension," she said. Bike
riding, old movies and small gather
ings of friends are also among her
favorite things. At UNC, Frye is a
member of the Undergraduate Stu
dent Court and has worked with the
Carolina Contact program in addi
tion to her two years with the CAA.
Frye said she felt some concern at
first with the fact that she was running
for CAA president but was not an
athlete. Now she said she has realized
that more important qualities for the
position are leadership and
Although she has never partici
pated in organized sports, her year
as a junior varsity and varsity
cheerleader gave her a close look at
athletics and the inside happenings.
"I've always been interested in how
to motivate a team. I think in athletics
there's something for everybody."

Government releases report
NEW DELHI, India The
government released a long-secret
report Monday that links Prime
Minister Indira Gandhi's personal
secretary to her assassination in
1984 and expresses suspicion he
was connected with the CIA.
The report, by a special investi
gative commission, also says
security officials were aware of the
threat to Mrs. Gandhi's life and
could have prevented the murder.
It had been kept secret on national
security grounds since its comple
tion nearly three years ago.
Home Minister Buta Singh,
releasing the report to Parliament,
said another special investigating
team "unraveled a conspiracy, a
larger conspiracy to eliminate
Mrs. Gandhi." He said the inves
tigation was finished in January
and that charges would be filed,

For the Record
In the March 23 article, "Woman
attacked near Joyner," The Daily Tar
Heel incorrectly stated that a report
had been made of a man jumping
from behind a bush in the Cobb
Joyner area and following a woman
inside through a side door of Joyner.
The incident was rumored, but was
never actually reported.
Monday's article, "UNC student

charged," reported the wrong resi
dence hall for Jill Ruth Kawanishi.
