Monday, January 20.
This year, interviews will be held over a
5-week period. On January 20,
interviews will begin for Operation Input,
Forum Committee and Performing Arts;
on February 3, interviews will begin for
Film, Gallery, Videotape and Special
Projects; interviews will begin February
24 for Social, Current Affairs and
Recreation. Any regularly enrolled.
fulltime student at UNC is eligible to
apply. Appointments to the Board will be
made by Lynn Mercer, Union President,
by February 28, subject to the approval of
the Board of Directors.
Operation Input was established in
1 974 to increase communications in the
area of popular entertainment between
memebers of the student body and the
Carolina Union. In addition, the group is
charged with the task of researching the.
entertainment market with a focus on
attempting to improve the quality of.
popular entertainment on the UNC
campus. Members of Operation Input are
appointed by heads of student
organizations which represent campus
housing areas and units, thereby giving
each student constituency a
representative for input and a source of
information when questions arise.
The Forum Committee is responsible
for selecting the program of major
speakers which visit the UNC campus
under the sponsorship of the Union. In
addition, they plan and carry out dinners,
receptions, press conferences and

classroom appearances for the individual
speakers. The early selection this year
will provide more time for the committee
to be organized, develop a list of tentative
speakers and begin making contacts for
the coming year. The Forum strives to
present speakers of national . and
international prominence that represent
a cross section of interests. This includes
the arts as well as politics.
The Performing Arts Committee has
been established this year by Mercer to
plan and coordinate programs in the
areas of dance, drama and music. The
committee will be charged with planning
a balanced program in those areas
working with agencies to determine what
is available, seeking suggestions from the
student body and working with the
entertainers in the actual productions
here on campus. In the past, this area has
been handled by the entire Activities
Board. The development of this
committee will allow more time to be
spent in these areas and allow the other
committees to spend more time
developing programs in their individual
areas. Past programs which would be
included in the Performing Arts program
would be Preservation Hall Jazz, Carlos
Montoya. National Shakespeare, New
York Touring Company, Louis Falco
Dance Company and Claude Kipnis
Mime. Mercer stressed that persons
applying for this position should have a '
broad interest in the performing arts and
the administration of such a program
rather than having expertise in one or b il
of the areas.
Sadat's warning came in an interview with
the Beirut newspaper An Nahar as:
Sen. Charles Percy, R-III., ending a
four-day visit to Cairo, warned of a !
devastating fifth Middle East war unless
there is a breakthrough in peace negotiations '
soon. Percy told a new conference that in j
Cairo "as in the other Middle Eastern i
capitals that I've visited these past two j
weeks, there is almost a unanimous feeling ;
that time is running out."
Israeli troops battled Lebanese artillery !
and Palestinian guerrillas in southeast :
Lebanon for the fifth day. The Israeli j
military command said four guerrillas were !
killed at Kfar Chouba, a village one mile
inside Lebanon which has been a major
target for the Israeli attacks this week, while
two Israeli soldiers were wounded. Lebanese 1
military spokesmen said the Israelis suffered
heavy casualties when Lebanese gunners
shelled an armored column and the border
settlement of Metulla.
