Iraq to free hostages
NICOSIA, Cyprus Iraq will begin
allowing foreign hostages to leave the
country beginning on Christmas "unless
something would take place that mars
the atmosphere of peace," Iraqi officials
Baghdad's latest peace move came
as the United States worked to secure
international approval for a U.N. reso
lution authorizing the use of force to
dislodge Iraqi troops from Kuwait,
which Iraq invaded Aug. 2. The White
House dismissed the move.
Iraq said the estimated 600 West
erners and others held at strategic sites
since the early stages of the Persian
Gulf crisis could all be freed by March,

The Iraq News Agency said the de
cision was made in a meeting presided
over by President Saddam Hussein.
A statement said the decision was
made so that "nothing will remain that
will trouble Christmas celebrations."

CNN not permitted
to play Noriega tapes
WASHINGTON The Supreme
Court refused by a 7-2 vote Sunday to
give Cable News Network permission
to broadcast tape recordings of con
versations between Panama's Gen.
Manuel Noriega and his lawyers.
The court rejected an emergency re
quest by CNN that was aimed at lifting
a federal judge's order forbidding the
broadcasts until he could determine what
the tapes disclose.
The request had called the Nov. 8
order by U.S. District Judge William
Hoeveler in Miami an unconstitutional
"prior restraint" of free speech. But
only two justices Thurgood Marshall
and Sandra Day O'Connor agreed
with that assessment.
Voting against CNN were Chief Jus
tice William Rehnquist and Justices
Byron White, Harry Blackmun, John
Paul Stevens, Antonin Scalia, Anthony
Kennedy and David Souter.
The Justice Department had joined
Noriega's lawyers in opposing the re
quest. In addition to the emergency request,
the court also turned down a formal
appeal filed by the cable network, in a
may be new drug czar
WASHINGTON Florida Gov.
Bob Martinez, who recently lost his re
election bid, is likely to succeed William
Bennett as President Bush's top lieu
tenant in the war on drugs, a White
House official said Sunday.
"Martinez is probably going to be the
next drug czar," said the official, who
spoke on condition of anonymity.
"Nobody else is being actively con
sidered," the official said.
It was not clear when the nomination
might be announced.
Martinez, 55, was clobbered in his
re-election effort by former Sen. Lawton
Chiles, losing by a 57-43 margin. He
was only the second Republican gover
nor in Florida since Reconstruction, and
he was the second to lose a bid for a
second term. His term ends Jan. 8, when
Chiles is to be inaugurated.

Odum Village residents question administrator
By PETER F. WALLSTEN
Three University administrators
visited Odum Village Sunday night for
an informal discussion about UNC's
land-use plan and the proposed South
Loop Road, which would cut through
the family student housing area.
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor for
student affairs, Ben Tuchi, vice chan
cellor for business and finance, and
Wayne Kuncl, housing department di
rector, met with 14 Odum Village
residents for more than two hours in
what was a prelude to tonight's Chapel

The Office of Development will re

Faculty Council meeting Friday.
Phillips plans to establish the
"Chancellor's Discretionary Fund,"
which could provide as much as $2
million for Chancellor Paul Hardin to
distribute to various University depart

RTVMP alumni say UNC program
doesn't prepare students for jobs
By SHANNON 0'GRADY
Graduates of the Radio, Television
and Motion Picture department said
Sunday that their education in the UNC
RTVMP department did not prepare
them for the job market after graduation.
1986 UNC graduate Jill Ortman, a
production director, said she wanted to
be a producer, but the RTVMP depart
ment did not prepare her for such a
career. Practical application of produc
tion techniques was missing from the
RTVMP curriculum, she said.
"My training had to come through
internships and elsewhere since the
education my family was paying fordid

"There are not going to be any instant
decisions, but I felt very good about it,"
he said. "The issues are all under dis
cussion. I'd much rather be talking than
turning it over to the lawyers."
Certain issues could be resolved
within a few weeks, Hardin said. "We're
not going to drag this out forever." He
declined to discuss specifics of the
meeting, saying, "Things that we talked
about for three and a half hours cannot
be summarized in a few column inches."
Alexander said he had not retreated
from his earlier stance that legal action
may be necessary. "There's a difference
between really working to get something
explaining the basics of the land-use
plan and fielding questions about UNC's
commitment to family student housing.
Residents have complained that UNC
has not shown enough concern for re
placing Odum Village.
University officials want to reroute
Manning Drive to decrease traffic
around UNC Hospitals. The plan would
require the demolition of part of Odum

The fund will not conflict with fund
raising efforts for the Bicentennial
25 letter to Gillian Cell, dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences.
"Most of the instruction I had (in the
RTVMP department) was very poor,"
Ortman said Sunday. "The teaching was
poor, the professors were poor and the
equipment was poor."
"There are technical aspects that you
really do need to know how to do
practically that the RTVMP department
did not teach," she said.

and writerdirector for Universal Pic
tures, said the RTVMP department

to anything short of a federal investi

American. "I'm dead set on asking for a

he would ask Hardin to show his good
crowd Sunday afternoon in the Great Hall. The choir
was accompanied by a pianist and a drummer.
"We have no intention at all of doing
anything with South Loop until re
placement facilities have been arranged
for anything affected by South Loop,"
Tuchi said. "We also know that if we
can ever develop two parts of the cam
pus, we have to not only have arrange
ments for Odum Village, but also for
staff housing and faculty housing."
The University would prefer buying
a replacement for Odum Village rather
than building a new facility, he said.
During the summer, a committee headed
by Boulton recommended the purchase
of Glen Lennox Apartments. The owners
of Glen Lennox were not interested in
the proposition, but wanted some other
Campaign because chancellor's fund
letters will be sent only to parents of
presently enrolled students, and the
amount requested is not large, he said.

but will show support forthe University.

Technical training is important to
almost all aspects of television and film

search results in 13
arrests, crack seizure
By CULLEN D. FERGUSON
Chapel Hill and Carrboro police
launched a surprise drug raid on North
Graham Street Friday night. State
Bureau of Investigation (SBI) officials
and Orange County police officers also
participated in the search which netted
one ounce of crack cocaine around
$2000 in cash, crystal methamphet
amine (ice), and drug paraphernalia.
Police had obtained a search war
rant for North Graham Street between
West Franklin and Rosemary streets,
and 13 arrests were made before the
raid was completed.
Lt. Barry Thompson of the Chapel
Hill Police Department said more than
40 police officers closed the street and
began to search the area around 9 p.m.
Thompson said no one was allowed to
leave the area until they had been
checked by police. Obtaining a warrant
for an entire street is not a common
procedure, he said
"It's been done before in North
Carolina, but not that often' he said.
"We had the assistance of the SBI in
obtaining the warrant."
Thompson said the operation was
deemed necessary after undercover
officers conducted a month-long in
vestigation of complaints of drug ac
tivity in the area. He said officers were
able to buy drugs on several different
occasions, and drug activity was
rampant in the area.
"We'd been receiving complaints

dealers hanging around on North Gra
ham Street," Thompson said. "There
were a lot of different small time
dealers working the area.
Thompson said a wide-scale op
erat ion was the only option police had
left to rid the area of its drug activity.
He said regular patrols of the street
had been ineffective because the
dealers only carried small amounts of
drugs at anyone time, and they would
drop them when police were spotted
in the area. After being questioned or
searched, the dealers would pick up
the drugs and sell again, he said.
"When the dealers sold their drugs,
they'd just duck into a drug house to
get more," Thompson said. "We
searched one house at the corner of
Rosemary Street and North Graham
Street and found a small amount of

raid sent a message to drug dealers.

dealers is that they no longer own the
street," Thompson said. "The people
of Chapel Hill do."
