U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) in
troduced an amendment in the Senate
Monday that will allow U.S. soldiers in
the Middle East to send mail home free
The amendment passed by a voice
vote in the Senate with little dissent,
said Eric Lundgren, special assistant to
"The amendment will alter a present
provision in a postal service bill which
would make it so soldiers in the Middle
East can frank (mail without charge)
their own letters," Lundgren said.
Helms introduced the amendment
following a trip he took last week to
Saudi Arabia where he visited with U.S.
"... There was one point that they (the
soldiers) kept repeating to me over and
over," Helms said while introducing the
bill. "It may be trivial to those of us back
home. It involved not having stamps to
mail letters back to their loved ones in
the United States.
'They cannot get stamps, and even if
they could, the stamps would soon be
stuck together by the humidity and the
sweat and the heat," Helms said.
Soldiers must write "Free Mail" in
the upper right corner where a stamp
would normally go and print their name,
rank and serial number directly under
neath, said Helms foreign relations
from page 1
staffer Dan Perrin.
In the past only soldiers involved in
armed combat or engaged in action
against an enemy of the United States
were able to enjoy the free-mail privi
lege, Lundgren said.
U.S. Sen. Terry Sanford (D-N.C.)
supported the amendment, said
Sanford's press secretary, Ken Friedlein.
"Had that been a Senate recorded
vote, he (Sanford) would have asked to
have been recorded in favor," Friedlein
said. "Sanford said he did use this (mail
privilege) during WWII and enjoyed
Democratic Senate hopeful Harvey
Gantt, who is running for Helms' seat,
made no official comment on the
amendment. But his press secretary,
Susan Jetton, said she was sure Gantt
would think the amendment was a good
Helms may be using the mail
amendment issue as a vehicle to further
his popularity during the election, Jetton
"Mr. Helms unfortunately has been
using the (Middle East) conflict for
campaign purposes since day one,"
The bill will go into joint conference
between the House and the Senate. The
House is scheduled to vote on the bill
next week, Lundgren said.
"I don't think the House will toss it
(the amendment) out," Lundgren said.

qualms about raising corporate taxes in
a time of budget problems, Barney said.
The economic stability of the 1980s is
gone, he said.
Peter Schledorn, library technical
assistant, also called for an increase in
corporate taxes. He cited a tax cut en
acted by the General Assembly that has
left the state with a $500 million deficit.
"We've taken all the cuts we can
take," he said. "We're not cutting
luxuries. We're cutting necessities that
are hurting people."
SabrinaEvans, president of the Black
Student Movement, focused on student
involvement in the budget crisis. "The
fight for budget cuts falls on all of our
shoulders," she said. "We cannot afford
to sacrifice the integrity of this univer
sity." StudentBody PresidentBill Hildebolt
compared "Save UNC Day" to the UNC
Vietnam War protests of the 1960s and
1970s. "We are afraid of what is to
come," he said. "If things get much
worse, we are going to have this whole
lawn filled with people just like they did

Brown compared the budget problems

of UNC to those of a sinking ship.
Keeping the reputation of UNC afloat
should be a top priority, Brown said.
English professor Trudier Harris said
the budget cuts have had a severe effect
on graduate students and the graduate
program. Harris quoted an anonymous
graduate student as saying, "'It is not
only frightening, but disturbing to live
in a constant state of financial peril.'"
Harris asked how to attract graduate
students to UNC. "We can't even offer
(graduate students) the basic kinds of
things," she said.
Students who attended the rally said
it was a positive step. "I'm definitely
glad they had the rally," said graduate
student Denis Thompson. "I think one
helpful thing was it told a lot of people
what's going on and encouraged politi
"This rally was like preaching to the
converted," junior Colin Soloway said.
"I thought the rally was a good start, but
simply demonstrating and jumping up
and down is not going to solve prob
lems. We need to establish lines of
communication with the legislature."

One of his brothers presently lives in
Asaba, and the rest of the family visits
their native country fairly regularly, he
said. "That's my home," he said.
Boyd Switzer, who has worked with
Edozien in the nutrition department
since 1972, said he was excited for
Edozien. He said he was sorry he would
not be at the coronation ceremony in
Switzer said he knew of Edozien's
Asabian background but did not expect
him to receive a kingship.
"I did not realize that this might hap
pen," he said. "I am surprised that it
came to pass."
Edozien's interest in the health of
black people will be an asset to the
country, Switzer said. "I think he
(Edozien) will be very involved in re
search in that area."
The Department of Nutrition will not
be affected in any major ways as a result
of Edozien's retirement, Switzer said.
"We have been anticipating that this
would happen for some time and have
been adjusting all along."
From 1971 to 1986, when Edozien
served as the nutrition department
chairman, he recruited everyone pres
ently on the staff with the exception of
two people, Switzer said. Since 1986
Edozien has focused on research but
has helped lecture in a number of
Joann Roth, registrar of the nutrition
department, said that although Edozien
has not interacted with students lately,
when he did teach, students received
him very well.

Plan users because of what Derby calls
"the missed meal factor." On average,
students on the plan will eat only 80
percent of the meals available to them,
"We're banking on the fact that stu
dents will not eat 20 percent of their
meals," he said. "If a student has 14
meals, he's more likely to eat closer to
11.6 (per week)."
Derby said all students may not
benefit from the plan. "It's certainly not
for students who are planning to go
home on weekends or who work
downtown at night and will never eat
dinner on campus," he said.
Students had a two-week period to
switch their meal plans if they found
they were unhappy with the policy they
About 100 students dropped the Flex
Plan during the two weeks because they
had been confused by the stipulations of
the policy, Derby said.
About 400 students are still enrolled
in the plan.
Derby said the program was similar
to ones used at Duke University and
N.C. State University. Marriott decided
to try the program primarily because of
requests by parents.
"We make an effort to keep in touch
with students through yearly customer
surveys," he said. "The request that
keeps surfacing, particularly with the
parents of freshman students, is for a
meal plan with the ability to budget."
The plan is being used on atrial basis.
"Most everything we do is on a trial
basis," he said. "Students' eating habits
change from year to year."
When Marriott first started offering
its services at the University four years
ago, it tried a traditional board plan,
where students paid a semester fee and
could eat as much as they liked, but it
"Students just aren't interested in all-you-can-eat
meal plans," Derby said.
Students using the Flex Plan use photo
identification cards separate from the
traditional Cash Cards so that nobody
else is able to use their meals.
Derby said that the program had been
promoted primarily to freshman, but
that the program was open to all students.
