President Bush authorized
SSOO million in grants
to airlines to improve and
study security technology.
The Associated Press
CHICAGO - President Bush asked
the nation’s governors to post National
Guard troops at airports Thursday as a
first step to take federal control of airline
security and coax Americans back into
the skies. “This nation will not live in
fear,” he said.
Bush’s plan envisions stationing
4,000 to 5,000 troops at the nation’s 420
commercial airports for up to six
months while the federal government
prepares to step in.
Also, many more in-flight air mar
shals would be trained and a federal
agency would be set up to oversee the
screening of passengers and luggage.
Governors prepared call-up orders.
“When you’re in a time of war, you
don’t question the commander-in-chief,”
said Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura.
But the nation’s mayors and some
Democratic leaders said Bush’s plan
The announcement came even as the
Pentagon acknowledged that proce
dures have been established since Sept.
11 for deciding whether to shoot down
a hijacked commercial jet.
Defense Secretary Donald H.
Rumsfeld said that for security reasons
he could not reveal details of the proce
dures that have been established since
the deadly hijackings on Sept. 11. In
cases in which time allowed, the presi
dent would be consulted before military
action was taken, he said.
If time was too short, the final deci
sion on firing at a civilian airliner could
be made by a general responsible for
U.S. air defense. Rumsfeld and others
stressed this would be a last resort.
“Very, very senior people are able to
address a matter in real time and ask the
right questions and make the right judg
ments,” Rumsfeld said.
The president announced his pro
gram to increase security at a pep-rally
style event at O’Hare International
Airport 16 days after suicide hijackers
slammed jediners into the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon.
He urged the crowd not to give terror
ism a victory by staying on the ground.
“Get on the airlines, get about the busi
ness of America,” Bush said. “Fly and
enjoy America’s great destination spots.”
He said nine of his Cabinet secre
taries would travel the country on com
mercial flights Friday to show
Americans that they, too, can feel com-

Family Housing Provides Unique Childhood Experience

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - After days
of saying it couldn’t locate Osama bin

said Thursday it had delivered a week-old
message to America’s prime suspect in the
terror attacks on the United States, asking
him to leave the country voluntarily.
The nation’s top clerics recommended
Sept 20 that bin Laden be asked to leave
Afghanistan, where he has been sheltered
for the past five years. The United States

Chancellor James Moeser’s informal proposal for
a five-year campus-initiated tuition increase brought
forth a wide range of reactions at the Board of
Trustees meeting Thursday morning.
Although many trustees said they are afraid anew
tuition increase would overburden students already
struggling with rising costs,
others said tuition increases
are a necessary part of
ensuring quality education.
Moeser said his proposal,
which will be presented to
the BOT in November, was prompted by UNC’s low
faculty salaries. Recent budget cuts from the N.C.
General Assembly gave the University full funding for
enrollment growth and retained its overhead receipts,
but left little money for faculty or staff compensation.
“We know we have lost ground with this legisla
tive session,” Moeser said.
Moeser said a five-year plan of graduated tuition
hikes would help combat the faculty salary problem.
But BOT Chairman Tim Burnett said the trustees
do not like to discuss tuition increases unless it is
“I think the trustees would be surprised to have
a proposal at the November meeting,” Burnett said.
“We’ll receive it regretfully."
Trustee Hugh McColl said he would not com-
friends the chance to play together more often
than a traditional neighborhood would allow.
“There are trees, parks, kids.... It’s a good
place to five,” Gousseva said. Her father also
is a dental student.
Important to these unique qualities of Odum
Village is the neighborhood’s ability to seclude
its residents from some aspects of UNC.
“(Odum Village is) pretty much separate.
We don’t get much of the advertisements that
other people on campus do, just the kid-ori
ented stuff,” said resident Martha Cummings,
a mother of two, whose husband is enrolled in
UNC’s School of Medicine.
Residents said they feel this autonomy in
Odum Village is enhanced by a friendly com
“In a regular apartment building, not every
one is going to the same place,” Shadreck said.
“Here, it is friendlier, instead of everyone going
in their different directions and no one caring.”

the Taliban, the hard-line Islamic move
ment that rules Afghanistan, indicated it
knew bin Laden’s location or how to
communicate with him.
The development came even as offi
cials revealed that the government’s
global manhunt has thwarted two ter
rorist attacks since Sept 11 and gathered
evidence suggesting collaborators were
in various stages of planning on several
other plots to harm U.S. interests.
Evidence seized in raids in the United
States and in Europe included plans or
materials for an attack on the U.S.

Embassy in Paris and an attack with

The officiak, who work in law enforce
ment and intelligence, spoke only on
condition of anonymity. They said about
two dozen arrests have been made across
Europe of people suspected of being
involved in die planning of those attacks.
The arrests have resulted from a glob
al manhunt led by the FBI and aided by
CIA intelligence that has produced dozens
of raids and searches in the last two weeks.
Information about the overseas
ment on the idea of Moeser’s tuition hike until he
sees more specific details. But he said he does not
want to see out-of-state students treated unfairly by
a tuition hike.
“I am in favor of out-of-state students,” McColl
said. “They add a great deal of diversity to the
University, and I wouldn’t support any plan that
made it harder or impossible for diem to come here."
Trustee Stick Williams said recent tuition increases,
such as the two-year campus-initiated increase that was
approved last year and die 9 percent increase passed
by the N.C. General Assembly this semester, could
mean that many students would be gready affected by
additional hikes. “Now, I think that (because of) how
high the increases were from other places, we need to
make sure students can do all that," Williams said.
But Trustee Richard Stevens said some increases
are an important part of University development.
“Generally there is a favorable climate to moderate
tuition increases over time,” Stevens said.
All the trustees said they want to ensure that stu
dents who cannot pay for the increase are support
ed by the University. Burnett said students receiving
need-based financial aid should be the top priority
when any increase is considered.
“We need to be sure we don’t cause students
receiving financial aid to suffer,” Burnett said. “I want
to make that clear that that’s still the sentiment.”

they value this aspect of their neighborhood.
Each building has a community living
room that allows for get-togethers between
residents. “We have picnics, and people from
different backgrounds bring different kinds of
food,” Uribe said.
Although Odum Village is a separate enti
ty from the UNC campus, it will be included
in upcoming plans for University expansion.

plan for growth, calk for family housing to be

But younger residents now are focused on

there’s a lot of extra space here, because the

Students and administrators
are hoping to have input
into crafting a tuition hike
proposal the BOT will hear.
By Rob Leichner
As Chancellor James Moeser contin
ues to suggest that the price of a UNC
education should go up next year, stu
dents and administrators are hoping to
have input in the crafting of a proposal.
At the semester's first Board of Trustees
meeting Thursday, Chancellor James
Moeser said work would begin soon to
determine if the five year, campus-initiat
ed tuition increase plan he has suggested
is necessary. The findings will be reported
at the next BOT meeting in November.
No committee has been appointed
yet to conduct the study, but Moeser
said a lot of the research might be done
privately within the BOT
But Provost Robert Shelton said the
process should include members of the
student body, faculty and staff. “When
we put together a committee, students
should be involved,” he said.
Student Body President Justin Young
said he does not know exacdy what
Moeser k planning but that he hopes to
be a part of the decision-making process.
“I would hope he would not propose
much of anything without consulting the
students,” Young said. “I definitely will be
working side-by-side with the big guy."
Moeser first suggested a five-year
plan for tuition increases to fund faculty
salaries during his Sept 5 State of the
