Iraq to add troops
to strength in gulf
BAGHDAD Iraq said Monday it
would pour 250,000 more troops into
Kuwait, more than doubling its military
strength in the occupied emirate, and
giving Iraq a superiority in the Persian
Gulf that "others cannot match."
The Iraqi News Agency announced
the troop buildup 1 1 days after President
Bush said the United States would send
an additional 200,000 soldiers to the
gulf, bringing the American force to
; Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Rick
Oborn said in Washington that the de
partment would have no comment on
the Iraqi troop buildup. Bush was in
Paris for the signing of an arms reduc
tion treaty by NATO and Warsaw Pact
members. He used the gathering to try
to win more support for a United Nations
resolution authorizing an attack to drive
Iraq from Kuwait.
In Rotterdam, Netherlands, the U.S.
Army began loading hundreds of jeeps,
trucks and armored vehicles aboard the
first of 20 to 30 ships sailing for the gulf
from the world's largest port, a Dutch
Army spokesman said.

GDANSK, Poland Lech Walesa,
exuding confidence six days before the
country's first popular presidential
election, declared Monday that he was
"born only for victory."
The Solidarity chairman, ahead in
the polls against his former ally Prime
Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki and four
others, said his struggle has already
been successful, because it has forced
an acceleration of change in Poland.
The 47-year-old electrician from
Gdansk rose to international prominence
more than a decade ago when he led the
trade-union movement that sparked
enormous political changes in Poland.
The Solidarity movement also helped
spark revolutions elsewhere in Eastern
Europe that ended decades of Commu

as dismal as it had been in Florida on

If the weather appeared bad enough
to endanger the safety of a landing,
NASA could decide to keep the shuttle

During the Defense Department

that reportedly is to spy on Iraq and sent
a holiday message to American troops

A warrant obtained by Chapel Hill
and Carrboro police to search North
Graham Street for drugs Friday night
may have been unconstitutional, a
Kenan Law Professor said Monday.
The warrant gave police the author
ity to close one block of the street and
search property and people there. The
raid occurred around 9 p.m. and netted
1 3 arrests. Police confiscated one ounce
of crack cocaine, about $2000 in cash,
crystal metamphetamine (ice) and drug
paraphernalia. The State Bureau of In
vestigation and a search dog from the
Orange County Sheriff's Department
also participated in the operation.
The application for the warrant filed
by the Chapel Hill and Carrboro police
departments stated, " ... we believe that
there are no 'innocent' people at this
place at this time of day. Only drug
sellers and drug buyers are on the de

Student athletes have shown con

years, according to a report issued by
the Faculty Committee on Athletics.

Student Stores should control
snack bars, committee advises
By BRIAN G0LS0N
Student government's ad hoc student
snack bar committee voted 7-3 last
Wednesday to recommend continuing
the UNC Student Stores' ownership of
the eight campus snack bars.
The ad hoc committee was created
after Ben Tuchi, vice chancellor for
business and finance, requested that
student government investigate the
option of moving the eight snack bars,
now run by Student Stores, to the food
service contract to enhance food service
companies' profitability on campus.
The committee will recommend to

Local NAACP to reorganize
after rise in discrimination
By MATTHEW EISLEY
Assistant University Editor
Local citizens may revive a long
dormant Southern Orange County
NAACP chapter in Chapel Hill, orga
nizers said Sunday.
A recent rise in alleged racial and
gender discrimination at the University
has spurred interest in reactivating the
local chapter, said James Brittain, a
Chapel Hill community activist.
The southern chapter was formed
more than a decade ago when a county
chapter split into northern and southern
branches to better serve different areas
of the county, said Carolyn Coleman, a
past state director of the National As
sociation for the Advancement of Col
The southern chapter dissolved about
1981 when membership fell off,
Brittain said the northern chapter had
not been active in the southern part of
the county since then.
He made his remarks Sunday night at
an NAACP rally at the Hargraves
Community Center. The rally was or
ganized to support UNC employees who
have filed grievances against the University.
