Fighting Rages in Algeria;
More Than 500 Rebels Die
ALGIERS, Algeria More than 500
Islamic rebels died this past week in
Algeria’s largest military operation against
guerrillas fighting to install Islamic rule,
sources said today.
There was no way to reconcile widely
conflicting reports of casualties from re
cent fighting across Algeria. But the report
ofhundreds of deaths in mountains west of
Algiers suggests that the scale of the mili
tants’ operation has grown.
The fighting, reported in four regions,
also shows how determined President
Liamine Zeroual is to crush the militants
before elections planned for later this year.
InWashington, D.C., Secretary of State
Warren Christopher said the violence in
Algeria was a matter of great concern to
the United States.
Carter Brokers Cease-Fire
In Sudan's Ongoing War
KHARTOUM, Sudan—Former Presi

month cease-fire between Sudan’s Islamic
government and rebels locked in one of
Africa’s longest and bloodiest wars.
The cease-fire, to take effect at midnight
Tuesday, was announced by Carter and
Sudan’s military leader, Lt. Gen. Omar
Hassan el-Bashir. In announcing the truce
late Monday, Bashir offered rebels a gen
eral amnesty if they laid down their arms.
More than 1 million people have died in
the 12-year war or in famines produced by
the fighting, which has pitted the Islamic
government against Christian and animist
Carter said he sought the truce to allow

Ex-Governor, Chairman Axed From BOG
In a surprising move, the Democrat
controlled N.C. Senate chose not to re
elect incumbent Board of Governors Chair
man Travis Porter, a Democrat, and sent
eight Democrats to the board, which su

Former Republican Gov. Jim Martin
also fell victim to Tuesday’s N.C. Senate
voting, which mirrored last week’s Repub

Incident Marks Fourth

University Police received a report at
10:43 p.m. Sunday that a female UNC
sophomore and her male friend, a student
at Georgia Tech, had been the victims of
armed robbery, accordingto police reports.
The robbery occurred while the couple
was lying on a blanket talking in the center
of Coker Arboretum, police reports state.
The incident was the fourth time a UNC
student had been robbed in the past week,
including one other time on campus, ac

Big Country, Cinderella Cowboys Travel Long Road to Seattle
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
Oklahoma State center Bryant Reeves
is aptly nicknamed, for if there’s one thing
his Cowboys have learned this year, it’s
that this is a Big Country.
By the time OSU completes its trip to
Seattle for the Final Four, it will have
played games in five time zones and will
have traveled 29,215 miles enough to
circumvent the globe with a few thousand
miles to spare.
Saturday at 5:42 EST, the Cowboys (27-
9) will try to extend their magical journey
for two more days as they face top-ranked
UCLA (29-2) in the national semifinals.
“It’s one of those things it’s kind of
like a fairy tale,” said OSU’s other star,
shooting guard Randy Rutherford.

According to reports, Chapel Hill po
lice were also notified and officers assisted

More than a third of the faculty who responded
to a 1994 survey said they did not face any conflict
between teaching and research. In history semi
nars, chemistry research projects, senior honors
theses and other student-faculty interactions, re
search and teaching occur simultaneously and
effectively, the report states.
And professors who do experience a clash be
tween research and teaching tend to resolve the
conflict in favor of teaching, the study found. Fifty
three percent of faculty survey respondents said
their research was somewhat or substantially hin
dered by teaching.
Faculty and instructor dedication to teaching
has paid off, the report concludes, pointing to high
national rankings of programs and departments,
alumni satisfaction, and student achievements as
evidence of UNC’s educational excellence.
Although teaching is already central to the
University’s intellectual life, the report says it could
be further improved with more frequent peer re
views of professors and higher-profile recognition
of excellent teaching. The report also discusses
educational issues such as student-faculty ratios
and draws intriguing conclusions about the differ
ent teaching styles of men and women.
Darryl Gless, who directed the self-study, said

“Literally, we meet all the criteria,” Gless said.

State Softens Objections
To Sidewalk Dining Plan
AND DAVID GERLACH
The prospect of eating dinner or lunch
outside at a downtown Chapel Hill restau
rant is close to becoming a reality. The
state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board
and the N.C. Department of Transporta
tion seem to have abandoned their prior
objections to the plan.
Gorman Gilbert, Chapel Hill’s repre
sentative to the DOT, said the department
would allow Chapel Hill to choose how to
use the sidewalks.
The department had previously been
concerned about liability that the state
would have for patrons consuming alcohol
on a state right-of-way, such as that sur
rounding Franklin Street.
Two stipulations come with the DOT’S
acquiescence to the sidewalk dining plan:
