OBcroaffqa Plane crash near Chile kiUs 19, injures 17 SANTIAGO, Chile A chartered Chilean airliner carrying 72 people, mostly American tourists en route to Antarctica, crashed into a freezing channel Wednesday near the southern tip of Chile, the airline said. Authorities said 19 passengers died. Seventeen of the 53 survivors from the British-made BAE-146 airplane were injured in the early afternoon ac cident, said a spokesman for the Chil ean airline LAN. The plane crashed in the Beagle Channel as it attempted to land in light rain at Puerto Williams, on Navarino Island, 1 ,500 miles south of Santiago, said the LAN spokesman. "The airplane went beyond the end of the landing strip, and fell into the water," according to a LAN statement. The airline said the cause of the ac cident was not immediately known. The names of the passengers all foreigners and mostly Americans, ac cording to tour officials were not immediately released. LAN President Jose Luis Moure said all seven crew members two pilots, four flight attendants and a mechanic survived. The airline said the plane was en route from Punta Arenas, 300 miles to the north. In Santiago, the air force said two helicopters and several light navy boats took part in the rescue effort, and that preliminary reports indicated 1 8 people were missing. Yeltsin criticized for urging Gorbachev out MOSCOW The Soviet parliament formally censured Russian leader Boris Yeltsin on Wednesday for urging Mikhail Gorbachev to resign, and Gorbachev's former foreign minister pleaded for peace in the "war of presi dents." The plea by Eduard Shevardnadze, in his first public remarks since his resignation as foreign minister last December, suggested the depth of the crisis in Soviet government. Shevardnadze quit after warning that the nation was heading toward dicta torship. In a stormy session of the Supreme Soviet parliament, fellow lawmakers accused Yeltsin, the president of the Russian Federation and a frequent Gorbachev critic, of declaring a civil 7V 5 ZETA BETA TAU FRATERNITY tart Your Own Fraternity!

Slovenian vote calls for break with Yugoslavia LJUBLJANA, Yugoslavia Slovenia's parliament voted over whelmingly Wednesday to begin the republic's formal secession from Yu goslavia. The federal system can no longer safeguard the interests of the republics, therefore the country must devolve into two or more sovereign states," Slovenia President Milan Kucan told a news conference. "Slovenia intends to embark on the process of dissolution immedi ately." By a vote of 173-1, with two ab stentions, legislators adopted a resolu tion saying Yugoslavia "will peaceably dissolve into two or more sovereign, independent states." Whatever states emerge should do so with their former borders unchanged, the resolution said. The non-Communist parliament also adopted a constitutional amendment declaring the supremacy of its own law over federal law in the Slovenian re public, whose capital is Ljubljana. 15 killed as radicals clash with private army NEW DELHI, India At least 15 people were shot to death during a clash between supporters of a radical politi cal party and a private army hired by rich landlords, news agencies reported Wednesday. The radicals fought with members of the Mazdoor Kisan Sangh on Tuesday in Bihar'sPatna district, about 520 miles east of New Delhi, Press Trust of India and United News of India said, quoting official sources. Press Trust said the clash started when supporters of the leftist political group tried to enforce a strike called by the Bihar state government to protest the firing of Gov. Mohammed Yunus Saleem. Saleem was dismissed last week by Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar. Governors are political appointees and can be dismissed at the discretion of the federal government. Initial reports put the death toll at 1 3. Press Trust said police found two more bodies later. The Associated Press r0 Commumly creatively By Jennifer Davis Staff Writer An exhibition dedicated to providing a forum for local artists and residents to express their opinions on the Persian Gulf War opens today in Carrboro and will run through Sunday, March 3. Concerned residents organized the exhibition entitled "War Here: A Com munity View," which will be held at 302-B East Main Street in Carrboro. One local artist started making pieces illustrating his views on the war even before the show was announced. "My pieces will speak for them Seaworthy students learn By Kay Stallworth Staff Writer School at sea. Through a program called Semester at Sea, a student can spend 100 days at sea, visit nine to 10 different countries and still be a full time student. Semester at Sea, offered by the University of Pittsburgh, takes place on an 1 8,000-ton cargo ship converted into a campus, said Paul Watson, Director of Admissions for this program. On the S.S. Universe, students get to experience travel and different cultures firsthand while retaining a college en vironment. Students spend 50 days at sea and 50 at port, visiting such exotic places as Venezuela, Brazil, Kenya, India, Ma laysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and China. Prior to the crisis in the Persian Gulf, the S.S. Universe had traveled to Morocco and Egypt and sailed through the Suez Canal to India, Watson said.

The hours of the exhibit will be weekdays from 5 to 10 p.m. and Satur day and Sunday from 2 to 10 p.m. "We are not try ing to make a political statement, either for or against the war," said Jacques Menache, one of the show's organizers, in a press release.

Sixty courses, mostly social science and hu manities, are offered. Sara Corpening, a senior art history major from High Point, went on the trip last spring. "I loved getting up at 4 a.m. and climbing the pyramids in Cairo to watch the sun rise," she said. Her twin sister, Mary Corpening, also a senior art history major, participated as well. She said her best experience was being out on deck at night with no land in sight, looking at the stars. Sara said their ship looked like the Love Boat. "It had a small pool, and everybody sunned between classes." But as with any trip, there was a down side. Even worse than the first two days of sea sickness was the trip to India. The students were set loose there for six days, with no specific itinerary. Mary and Sara, along with a couple of their friends, missed the train they were METAL PERFORMANCE: "Stone Cold Crazy."

Bett Wilson, another organizer for the exhibit, said between 20 and 30 exhibits have been chosen so far. The organizers are still accepting entries from people interested in expressing their ideas about the war. The idea for the exhibit originally came from Debra Sykes, a Chapel Hill resident, who said she was "concerned about what we are doing to each other and to our planet." A committee of Triangle residents was then formed to organize the exhibition. Throughout the exhibition, members of the community can call a local num while they tour the globe supposed to take and had to settle for an 1 1-hour taxi ride instead. Eventheir classes were an adventure, they said. Students met for class every day, excluding those days spent at port. Travel was integrated into all of them. Once the boat docked, though, the students were set free. There was a great sense of independence, Sara said. "If you missed the boat, then it left. It was your job to get to the next port to catch it. Because of this, though, nobody missed the boat." Getting to the next port meant catching a plane in a foreign country, Sara said. Out-of-class activities included shipboard news a news broadcast done by the students a yearbook staff, intramural athletic activities, a movie theater and clubs. Movies were shown each night, and a theater group performed. Some people even got to gether and formed bands. The 450 to 500 students on board each semester represent 150 to 160 schools, Watson said.

"We thought this exhibit would be an outlet for people to express their feelings." dents from UNC had been on the pro gram in the last 10 years. "The program has a community spirit since the students are living on board with their professors," Watson said. Administered by the Institute for Shipboard Education, the program re quires that students be full-time under graduates with a minimum GPA of 2.75. They must also be at least second-term freshmen. The cost may be a bit much, though. It is approximately $ 1 1 ,000 for tuition, board and passage, depending on the type of cabin. But, Watson said, finan cial aid and work grants were available. Sara said the trip was worth the cost. "I learned more in that three months than I have in my entire career at Caro lina." The program has rolling admissions, so there is no deadline.
