Foreigners flee after

NAIROBI, Kenya Hundreds of
foreigners crowded onto special flights
out of Rwanda's capital on Sunday while
government forces and rebels clashed
in the northern part of the country.
Some of the more than 700 refugees
flown to France and Belgium recounted
the chaos in the country since rebels
invaded Sept. 30.
Jean-Claude Fayd-Herbe, the World
Bank's chief representative in Rwanda,
told journalists that he and his family
were staying in a hotel in Kigali when
rebels attacked early Friday.
I "It was chaos. The French para
' troopers were shooting, and the people
coming from Uganda also were shoot

A vacation makes you feel good

Assistant University Editor
UNC-system president CD. Spangler
announced Thursday he would donate
his $142,520 annual salary to UNC
Spangler, a multi-millionaire, wrote
a check for $10,000 to each of the 16
universities in the system.
Recent budget cuts were part of the
motivation for his contribution, Spangler
Ben Tuchi, vice chancellor for busi
ness and finance, has submitted a
spending reduction plan to Chancellor
Paul Hardin, who is expected to an
nounce a decision about future budget
cuts within the University this morning.
The N.C. General Assembly cut 3
percent of the University's base budget
in August because of a $336 million
shortfall in state revenue. When state
income dropped further, UNC received
a 2 percent reduction in its first quarter
allotment, and cuts for the second quarter
are predicted to total 3 to 3.5 percent.
Hardin ordered vice chancellors to
make recommendations to cut spending
in their respective departments to pre
pare for the second quarter budget re
ductions. Tuchi received reports from the three
associate vice chancellors in business
and finance last week, he said. After the
reports were assimilated, Tuchi re
viewed them and submitted his recom
mendations to Hardin.
Tuchi did not say if staff layoffs were
involved in the plan, but one associate
vice chancellor said he had found al
ternate ways to save money.
Charles Antle, associate vice chan
cellor of business, said he could not
comment on the specific content of his
report, but that it did not include plans
"The other associate vice chancellors
and I put together spending reduction
plans to cover budget shortfalls," Antle
said. He said the report he submitted did
not require layoffs.

Police, community step up patrols after reports of random violence increased during past weeks
By DOUG FERGUSON
After several weeks of escalated
violence in downtown Chapel Hill, this
weekend passed with few incidents and
a highly visible police presence.
On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Chapel
Hill police were called in response to
acts of seemingly random violence by
three black youths, on Franklin Street.
According to police reports, the youths
had been in the Barrel of Fun arcade
where they assaulted a patron and
damaged the front door. Witnesses re
ported that after leaving the arcade, the
youths moved out on to Franklin Street
and assaulted numerous pedestrians.
Witnesses said the suspects fled the
scene before police arrived.

Encounters services presently is on hold
until mid-October, said Amy Germuth,
SAFE Escort Service publicity chair
woman. But when SAFE returns, it will
be a transformed service.
"The SAFE escort service we're
operating is so much different than the
one that's been around," she said.
"It's going to be radically different.
We're trying to make it the safest pos
sible, so that it will be much more ef
fective for student needs."
New features include midnight to 3
a.m. service seven days a week, ID
badges and pair escorting.
SAFE officials will introduce a more
rigorous recruitment process this year
by using interviews and a screening
procedure to choose escorts.
"They (the escorts) will be screened
said Sunday night.'
"It seemed like the right thing to do,"
Spangler said. "I thought that there might
be the possibility of some resentment
because of the budget cuts.
"I was concerned about that resent
ment transferring over to resentment of
me or, more importantly, resentment of

said the police have been called nu

Abe Morrison, a victim of the Sept.
29 attacks, said after the events of the
last few weeks, this weekend passed
without any problems.
"It's a safe feeling on the streets
now," Morrison said. "Everything seems
to be pretty much back to normal."
Although the Chapel Hill police were
unavailable for comment, Morrison said
he was informed that an arrest has been
made for the Sept. 29 attacks. Morrison
said he received a call from the police,
by the police, because we want to make
sure the people we have working with
us are the best ones to work with,"
One of the main goals of SAFE is to
increase the diversity of its volunteers.
"This year, we're trying to target
more people," she said. "We really are
also trying to get a better cross-section
of the University and go beyond the
white Greek system." Last year, most of
the library escorts were from fraternities
or sororities, she said.
She also said she hoped new volun
teers would include more women,
members of the Black Student Move
ment, UNITAS and the Campus Y.
About 80 volunteers will be needed
to cover all the shifts.
Kathleen Benzaquin, SAFE Escort
adviser and Rape Awareness chair
woman, said the purpose of the changes
was to set down a foundation from
which SAFE Escort could develop.

The State Personnel Commission
agreed Thursday to defer its decision
about the University's proposed griev

Paula Schubert, State Employees
Association of North Carolina president,
said SEANC members were pleased
with the commission's decision and
hoped University administrators would
revise the proposal.
About 1 2 SEANC members attended
the meeting Thursday to ask the com
mission not to approve the proposed
policy, she said.
"Basically they sent it (the proposal)
back to the University," she said. "We
are real pleased with that."
SEANC members asked UNC
Chancellor Paul Hardin at a meeting
Tuesday to withdraw the proposal from
the state commission so members and
administrators could work together on a
new proposal. Vice Chancellor Ben
Tuchi's committee developed the pro
posed grievance policy.
Hardin told SEANC officers
Wednesday that he agreed with the
proposal and would not withdraw it
from the state commission.
Hardin could not be reached for
comment Sunday night.
SEANC members have said at past

Friday night. The groups consisted
mostly of women and older citizens
carrying hand-held two-way radios and
cameras, he said.
Morrison, who lived in New York
before moving to Chapel Hill, compared
the citizen patrols to similar neighbor
hood groups which have formed in New
York City. "Suddenly, I'm in the East
Village," he said.
Mike Kelly, a Club Zen employee,
said he had also seen the neighborhood
patrols. Kelly said although they may
have good intentions, people should not
take the law into their own hands.
"As long as (the patrols) don't play
the part of judge, jury and executioner,
it's all right," Kelly said. "We don't
need vigilante patrols in Chapel Hill."
