Security Council calls
for S. African sanctions
By VICTORIA GRAHAM
Associated Press Writer
UNITED NATIONS - A Security
Council draft resolution circulated Mon
day calls for mandatory economic sanc
tions, including an oil embargo, against
South Africa to force the government to
abolish apartheid within a year.
The draft resolution, to be dis
cussed when the council meets Titesday,
expresses outrage at the banning of anti-
apartheid activities and concern for the
“worsening of the human suffering
resulting from the apartheid system" of
The resolution says South Africa’s
intransigence "compels the internation
al community to impose, as a first step,
selective mandatory sanctions."
Under South Africa's system of
apartheid, the 26 million blxks have no
voice in national affairs and the 5 million
whites control the economy and main
tain separate schools and districts.
The resolution, circulated after
three days of debatb, calls for a halt to
export and sale of oil to South Africa; an
end to further investment and loans; a
ban on imports of iron and steel; a halt of
all trade promotion and support for trade;
prohibition of sale of Kruggerands and
all coins minted in South Africa; and
cessation of all forms of mOitary, policy
or intelligence cooperation, especially
the sale of computer equipment
South African U.N. Ambassador
Leslie Manley told the Security Connbil
last Thursday, “We will not bow to your
threats of demands and we reject your
accusations with cemtempt and invite you
to do your damnedest"
The resolution calls for all U.N.
members to back the sanctions and
report progress to the secretary-geno-al.
It establishes a Security Council com
mittee to monitor implementation.
Security Council resolutions can
be vetoed by any one of its permanent
members _ the United States, Great
Britain, China, France and the Soviet
Union. The Council and the UJ4. Gener
al Assembly have condemned South
Africa in the past, but the United States
and other countries have opposed sanc
The resolution says the sanctions
would remain in force for one year, after

In response to a public outcry
ctMlceming the doubling of the cost
fw the annex to the new Lawrence
Joel Coliseum, the Board of Alder-
mwi Monday voted to hire an inde
pendent consultant to study the old
coliseum building and determine
whether it can be renovated.
Ronald R. Morgan, a Charlotte
architect who was involved in die
initial study of the coliseun1"in
1983, has been retained by the city
on an hourly basis. He is to give a
general report to the board at their
first meeting in April.
In 1985 the voters approved a
referendum for a $3.95 million
annex to the new coliseum. But
early last month city officials pre
sented the board with plans for a
structure which would cost $8.35
The board's Finance and Pub
lic Works Committees approved
the new design then, but the
Finance Committee asked city offi
cials to find ways to cut the costs.
Alderman Martha S. Wood
challenged city officials, however,
insisting that voter trust was at
stake and that city officials had an
obligation to build the annex under
the original guidelines approved by
At Monday's meeting Aider-
man Lynne S. Harpe offered a
motion to hire Morgan to study the
existing structure, saying there had
been "considerable citizen reaction
to the increase in cost"
Other aldermen also said they
had been contacted by their con
stituents concerning the costs for
the new design.
"I too have received a number
of calls from citizens I have the
utmost respect fw, asking that we
try to preserve the existing struc
ture and save tax dollars," said
Alderman Virginia K. Newell. "I
would like to assure our citizens
that we have exhausted all possi-
