South Africa plans
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
The government Monday proposed a
way for segregated public schools to
become integrated private schools if
parents favor such a change.
The announcement by Education
Minister Piet Clase gave no indication
the government intends to integrate
public schools, a demand by leading
Public schools, which are completely
funded by the government, have been
segregated by race for decades under
However, many private schools,
which receive some government money,
have been integrated in recent years.
Under the government plan, parents
would have to vote on whether to inte
grate the schools beginning next year.
To pass, the proposal would require 72
percent approval with at least 80 percent
of the parents voting.
If a school chose to integrate, its
government funding would be phased
down over several years from 100 per
cent to 45 percent the amount private
schools currently receive. Clase said
that parents would have to pay about
$1,000 per student per year to attend a
public school that had gone private.
Winter oil supply
WASHINGTON Energy Depart

Monday that fuel oil supplies will be
adequate this winter but only it the

Several congressmen complained
that the assessment was based on rosy

little comfort to Americans relying on
oil to heat homes and factories.
'There now is a very small margin of
safety," said Rep. Philip Sharp, D-Ind.,
and chairman of the House Energy and
Power Subcommittee. The Department
of Energy "tends to underestimate what
can go wrong," he complained.

alive but ill in Beirut
LONDON Terry Waite, the An
glican Church envoy held hostage in
Beirut for more than three years, has
been ill but is alive, released Irish hos
tage Brian Keenan said Monday.
"He was in the same apartment as I
was being held in," Keenan said in an
interview with Britain's Independent
Waite's cousin, John Waite, said this
was the first confirmation in more than
three years that Terry was alive. "It is
wonderful news," he said.
Keenan, 39, was released last month
after four years in captivity.
He said he heard the guards calling
Waite by his first name. He said he is
sure they were talking to Waite, and not
Terry Anderson, because he heard Waite
speak and recognized his English accent.
"I know Terry Waite is alive. I know
he has been ill and the illness I do not
think is serious," Keenan said.

Monday night's student body meet

students of a similar and, as some might
say, more ominous meeting 20 years
ago in May 1970, when about 9,000
people gathered in Polk Place to protest

Student leaders, administrators and
one General Assembly representative
told about 1,500 students, faculty and
administrators to take an active stand
against University budget cuts at
Monday night's student body meeting.
Speakers said the cuts could be battled
by students and their parents contacting
state legislators through telephone calls
Voters should voice their concerns
and complaints with legislators, said
Chancellor Paul Hardin. B ut they should
be careful not to criticize legislators on
a personal level because they are not
enemies of the University, he said.
When questioned about who the
University's enemies were in the bud

"When I say I don't see enemies, I don't
mean all our friends are of equal effec
tiveness." N.C. General Assembly Rep. Joe
Hackney, D-Dist. 24, said other states
such as Virginia, Florida, New Jersey,
New York and California had enacted
cuts in education spending. "You need
to know that this is a national problem
and not just a North Carolina problem."

UNC administrators developed the
University's first training program de
signed to improve international teach
ing assistants' skills this summer, but
the workshop may not continue next
year because of budget cuts.
The committee that planned the In
stitute for International Teaching As
sistants program met last November to
develop the idea of a course geared
toward international TAs, said Edward
Bergman, committee chairman.
Edward Neal, a member of the pro
gram committee, said the program met
with no objection from the TAs.
The program committee asked de
partments to recommend TAs for the
program based on their scores from the
Test of English as a Foreign Language.
The committee invited the students they
felt would benefit the most to participate -in
the program, he said.
The committee invited 33 TA's to
participate, and 22 attended the program,
Neal said. However, all the students
expressed interest in the course, he said.

Monday's hearing coincided with the
expiration of a temporary restraining
order Morgan issued Aug. '30. The re

Foods, prohibited Marriott from in
stalling vending machines and allowed
Classic Foods to continue providing
vending service under their contract
with the University, which expired Aug.
Morgan ordered Classic Foods to
pay Marriott $46,235.16 for revenue
lost, installation costs and employees

the University $ 1 ,500 for losses incurred
while the restraining order was in effect.

Those specifications include infor

the general reputation and performance
capabilities of the bidder and the bidder's

Fox said that Marriott's decision to
subcontract Pepsico for the soft drink
portion of vending services obliged it to
include information about Pepsi's pro

information in the bid prevented the
University from making a fair assess

"Save UNC Day" will give students

voice concerns about University
budget cuts to state legislators and
"We hope to begin educating state
policy makers and the public at large
of the serious effects brought on by
the budget crisis," said Joel Sipress,
Graduate Students United co-chairman.
"Secondly, we want to communi

community the concrete actions they
can take to make sure the state gov

GSU organized the program, which
begins with a rally at 12:30 p.m. in
"Save UNC Day" was developed
by graduate students and under
graduate student leaders because of
the budget cuts imposed on the Uni
versity. Originally, organizers planned
to stage class boycotts, but later de
cided to plan activities for students to
attend instead of boycotts.
The rally will feature addresses from
University administrators, faculty,
staff and students.
Problems arising from recent cuts
in University spending will be dis
cussed at the rally, Sipress said.
The GSU will be sponsoring a
benefit luncheon in Polk Place during
the rally for graduate students whose
jobs have suffered salary cutbacks,
Ten percent of the proceeds from
the luncheon will go to benefit a GSU
emergency fund for graduate students,
and the rest of the money will cover
expenses, he said.
After the rally, GSU will hold a
forum with legislators, administrators,
faculty and students in Great Hall in
the Student Union at 2 p.m.

UNC Day" was a way for students
and legislators to offer opinions about
