had grown to 41 members and was
named a campus chapter.
Chapter members were honored

The CIA Action Committee
(CIAAC) will protest the presence of
CIA recruiters in Hanes Hall today
with a "funeral march" from the Pit,
past Hanes and on to South Building.
The march will begin at noon in the
Pit, according to CIAAC member Joey
Templeton, a senior from Gastonia.
"It'll be real somber, more like a vigil."
The protest will include CIAAC
speakers and distribution of fact sheets,
said Templeton. The protesters have no
plans to enter any of the buildings, said
"It's going to be a peaceful demon
stration," said CIAAC member Charla
Campbell, a junior from Jamestown.
Six CIAAC members were arrested
in October T 987 after chaining them
selves to furniture in Hanes on a day
CIA recruiters were interviewing. Ar
rests also resulted for eight CIAAC
members in April 1988 at Hanes.
The group also made news in Febru
ary 1988 when members surprised a
CIA recruiter at the University Motor
Inn and followed him out of town when
he canceled his interviews. The Board
of Trustees condemned the group for
this incident, calling their acts "vio
lent" and "terrorist."

The April 1988 incident led to Stu
dent Court convictions for seven of
those arrested. The most recent convic
tion was of graduate student Dale
McKinley, who received a sanction of
definite probation from the court last
month. He is in the midst of an appeal.
Today's march ends a week of activ
ity by the CIAAC. "When the CIA
comes on campus, we do a series of
things, not just one reaction," McKin

On Friday, the group staged a mock
debate in the Pit between Campbell and
senior Graham Entwistle, a CIAAC
member from Charlotte. The CIA had
previously declined an invitation by
the CIAAC to debate foreign policy
and the limits of CIA power.
Asked if his recent conviction by the,
Graduate Student Court would change
the nature of CIAAC protests, McKin

UNC students will get a chance to be
high rollers and fight cancer at the same
time when "Las Vegas Comes to Caro
lina" on Nov. 16.
The event is in conjunction with the
Great American Smokeout, said Si Yon
Yu, organizer of the event. Proceeds
will go to the American Cancer Society
to be used for cancer research.
The charity ball, which is being
sponsored by Olde Campus, will be
held in Great Hall in the Student Union.
Proceeds will come mostly from the
sale of tickets, Yu said. About 400
tickets are available for $5 each, so the
donation should be about $2000.
"It will be an educational event as
well as an entertaining one," she said.
"While publicizing the event, we're
also publicizing the harmful effects of
Clare Aselin, a resource person for
the event, said the ball will be a monu
mental event. It has much to offer be
cause it is a semi-formal event which
offers gambling, dancing and even a
dance show, she said..
Yu, a resident assistant in Manly
Residence Hall, said the idea to have a
charity ball came from Hinton James'
Casino Night. She wanted to do some
thing similar for the residents on her
hall, and the idea escalated into "Las
Vegas Comes to Carolina."
Students and Orange County resi
dents are invited to the event, which
will feature casino games such as black
jack, craps and roulette. The games will
be played with play money, which will
be distributed at the door, Yu said.
Olde Campus volunteers and mem
bers of Theta Chi fraternity are being
trained to serve as dealers for the games
by Jack Costello, a professional dealer,
Music will be provided by Shannon
Talbert, a disc jockey at Players, so
dancing will be an alternative for those
who don't want to gamble, she said.
The High Kickin' Heels will also
perform two numbers during the eve
ning, Yu said.
Some of the door prizes to be given
away are two basketball tickets do
nated by Dean Smith, which are behind
the bench for the Jan. 22 Carolina
Wake Forest basketball game, calcula
tors donated by Hewlett Packard, a
$ 100 discount on any gold class ring by
Art Carved and videotapes of the movie
Proceeds from the sale of mocktails,
donated by Carolina Dining Services,
will also go towards the donation, Yu
Tickets are available this week in the
front lobby of Lenoir from 12 p.m. until
1 p.m., or can be purchased from the
American Cancer Society located on
Elliott Road, Aselin said.
