Bazaar featuring
handicrafts, food
to begin Friday
The International an Appalachian
Handicrafts Bazaar will open Friday,
featuring such items as Canadian soapstone
carvings, Brazilian woven baskets, Japanese
prints, pottery and dolls.
"Christmas Around the World" is the
bazaar's general theme.
"It's a festive occasion on campus," said
Susan Stamper, co-chairperson of the
bazaar. "We're bringing things to U NC from
all over the world. It's an educational as well
as a cultural event."
The bazaar, sponsored annually by the
Campus Y, will be held Friday from 7 to 1 1
p.m., Saturday from 1 1 a.m. to 1 1 p.m. and
Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. It is the Campus Y's
major fund-raising project.
The international segment of the bazaar
will be located in the Y-Building in the Y
Court. Items from 26 countries will be on
sale for prices ranging from 25 cents to $50.
International dolls in native costumes and
UNICEF cards and calendars also will be on
Appalachian handicrafts will be located in
Great Hall of the Carolina Union. Unlike the
international section, the Appalachian
bazaar will feature craftsmen making and
selling their own wares. A percentage of their
profits will go to the Campus Y.
"The Appalachian bazaar gives students
an idea of what's going on in their own area,"
Stamper said.
Booths will be set up on both floors of
Great Hall for the craftsmen. They will
demonstrate their arts in areas such as dough
Christmas ornaments, leather, glass, wood,
weaving, toys, metal, batik, jewelry, quilts,
pottery, macrame and baskets.
A coffee house, featuring baked goods
popular in different parts of the world, will
be held in Room 207 Carolina Union.
'The bazaar is a really good time for
students to do Christmas shopping,"
Stamper said. "It's a good chance to get
unusual gifts."

KCIA plan to infiltrate U.S. revealed

B) I'nilcd Pxtsa International
WASHINGTON - A secret South
Korean intelligence plan unveiled Tuesday
at a House hearing called for broad efforts to
influence U.S. policy last year by infiltrating
the White House. Congress, the Pentagon
and the State Department.
No immediate evidence was produced to
show that the purported Korean CIA plan,
with a projected cost of $750,000, was
implemented on a broad scale to generate the
internal spy network it envisioned to gain
favorable policies for Korea.
The 24-page document outlined
clandestine operations at the White House
and elsewhere in government also proposed
steps to win influence in the news media,
academic circles, religious groups and other
organizations. It referred to a separate plan
for congressional campaign contributions
but gave no details.

Shared-ride patronage surpasses 100 mark
Staff Writer
Ridership on the town's shared-ride taxi
service passed the 100 mark for the first time
Monday night, according to dispatcher
David Jones.
Jones said ridership has been increasing
steadily since the Chapel Hill
Transportation Department lifted a 25-cent
surcharge Nov. 16 for rides from bus stop to
bus stop. He said ridership has been
averaging 90 to 95 rides per night, and
reached an all-time high of 107 Monday.
"1 think we'll beat that (107) tonight,"
Jones said Tuesday. "I think we'll be peaking
somewhere around 125, 130 riders a night."
Bill Callahan, transportation department
administrative assistant, said Tuesday that
town and University of ficials will meet today
to discuss the taxi service, which will operate
through Dec. 16.
The University, which has been skeptical
of the taxi service's effectiveness in meeting
transportation needs, provides a $366,200
supplement for mass transit in Chapel Hill
through the purchase of bus passes, which
are resold at a discount to students, faculty
and staff members.
Jones attributed much of the ridership
increase to the absence of a surcharge: "I'm
certain that had a bearing on it. You can't
lose going bus stop to bus stop.
"I think the Christmas shopping crowd is
having an effect, too."
Callahan said the transportation
department is pleased with the increase, but
he was reluctant to attribute it to lifting the
"Dropping the surcharge might have an
effect, although we haven't been able to
gauge it yet," he said.
He said other possible explanations for
the improved ridership are the colder
weather, earlier darkness and students'
making more studying trips as the semester
"There's probably been enough
improvement in ridership that there won't be
any changes (in the taxi service)." Callahan
said. "As far as 1 know, we will be operating
it again second semester."
Under the terms of a contract signed Sept.
30 between the town and the University, the
town agreed to modify the experimental
night service if ridership did not reach an
average of 1 00 riders per night by Oct. 3 1 .
The Chapel Hill transportation Board
met Nov. I but decided to recommend to
Town Manager Kurt J. Jenne that the
service not be modified at that time. On Nov.
10, however. Transportation Director Bob
Godding confirmed that the surcharge
would be dropped for bus-stop-to-bus-stop
The 50-ccnt surcharge for bus-stop-to-door
and door-to-bus-stop service and the
75-ccnt surcharge for door-to-door service
was retained, as was the requirement that
riders have a bus pass.
The plan was released by an International
Relations subcommittee investigating KCIA
activities in the United States.
The lead-off witness, Sohn Ho Young.the
chief KCIA agent in New York until he
defected two months ago, testified the
document was drafted in 1975 for use the
next year.

Police continue crackdown on bikers

Chapel Hill police officers have begun
issuing citations for bikers who violate the
town's traffic ordinances. Police Chief
Herman Stone said Monday.
The citations are the second stage of the
police crackdown on bikers who violate
traffic laws.
"Up to this point we have mostly given
warnings," Stone said. "Citations have only
been given for the most hazardous traffic
violations such as running a stop sign."
Stone said each police officer uses his own

discretion in deciding whether to give the
biker a ticket or a warning for violations.
The most common warnings have been for
running stop signs, red lights and yield signs,
the police chief said.
The number of warningsand tickets police
have issued is not available because police
statistics do not distinguish between motor
vehicles and bicycles w hen reports are filed.
The crackdown on bike violations was
prompted by the large number of complaints
from cyclists and motorists. Stone said.
"Motorists were complaining about the
bikers, and the hikers were complaining
about the motorists infringing on their
rights." he said.
If you are interested in math, physics or engineering,
the Navy has a program you should know about.
It's called the NUPOC-Collegiate Program (NUPOC
is short for Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate), and if
you qualify it can pay you as much as $611 a month for
the remainder of your senior year. Then after 16 weeks of
Officer Candidate School, you will receive an additional
year of advanced technical education, education that
would cost thousands in a civilian school, but in the
Navy we pay you. And at the end of the year of training,
you'll receive a $3,000 cash bonus.
It isn't easy. Only one of every six applicants will be
selected, and there are fewer than 300 openings. But
those who make it find themselves in one of the most
elite engineering training programs anywhere. With
unequalled hands-on responsibility, a $24,000 salary in
four years, plus travel, medical benefits and education
For more details on this program, ask your

board saw what Madison had been doing,"
Frost said. "Madison disgraced himself
before the board with his abrasive manner.
Now he's virtually powerless and out of the
picture, because he'll be under the close
scrutiny of the board and the staff.
"I he hoard said that Madison had made a
'mistake' and they slapped his wrist for it.
They just don't know w hat's going on down
in the station."
The staff presented the SLB members with
the 32-page document calling for Madison's
removal prior to the Monday meeting. Hie
document consisted of testimony from
WXYC staffers and copies of
correspondence between Madison. Ilyman,
the station manager and board members.
"Several times since the actions of Nov. Id
(when Sl'B refused to fire Ilyman and
Madison and station manager Moore
resigned). WXYC has reached a state of near
disaster, and we feel we can no longer
function with the atmosphere such as it is."
the document stated. "The future of the
station is in your hands, and we hope that
you. the members of the SFB, will use good
judgment and help make these requests
become reality"
Madison called the document "bullshit"
before the meeting and after the vote said.
"I'm not surprised at the vote; I knew when
the meeting started that the hoard didn't
have enough votes to get rid of me."
Staff members and anti-Mason board
members speculated after the meeting that
Madison could have been removed if the
SIB members who were absent had attended
the meeting.
The evidence listed by the WXYC staff
against Madison included a list of several
reasons for which they felt Madison should
be fired. Among these were a lack of ability,
a lack of integrity, misuse of authority, lack
of communications with Student
Government and a lack of staff support.
"Neither David (Madison) nor Mike
(Ilyman) are in any way appreciated,
approved of, or supported by the staff of
W X Y C ( nor have t hey been at any time since
they held those positions)," the document
But Madison termed the evidence "full of
inaccuracies, redundant and out of order.
All that I have done is embarrassed a lot of
people with the truth, and I'm not going to
shut up."
Madison will remain on SEB at least until
Jan. 16, the date of the next SFB meeting.
In a related development, charges against
former staff member David Spcigner by
Madison were dropped Tuesday due to
insufficient grounds. Madison filed the
charges earlier this month, saying that
Speigner ' threatened him during a
confrontation in the WXYC offices.
