WASHINGTON (AP) Prime
Minister Menachem Begin of Israel said
Sunday he was holding a last-minute
meeting with Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat over several problems relating to a
peace treaty between their two countries.
Begin was driven to the Egyptian
Embassy for the meeting early Sunday
night, shortly after the Israeli leader
arrived from New York.
Begin gave assurances there would be
no delay in the nationally broadcast
signing of the treaty scheduled for 2 p.m.
EST at the White House. But Moshe
Dayan, the Israeli foreign minister, said
the treaty should not be signed unless
differences over oil fields are resolved.
"Just in case they will not find a
solution, my personal view is that we,
Israel, cannot sign the treaty," Dayan
said on ABC-TV's Issues and Answers.
Begin did -not register the concern
expressed by Dayan. Appearing on CBS
TV's Face the Nation, the prime minister
said he and Sadat had several problems to
talk about. "Humanly, there is no
obstacle to signing a peace treaty,' he
said.
Begin implied that the question of
additional treaty signings was the one
unsettled issue between Israel and Egypt
and, on his arrival in Washington from
New York, he said Sadat had agreed with
him that they sign Hebrew and Arabic
versions of the treaty in Jerusalem and
Cairo "so that all the people of the Middle
East could see symbolically" the first step
toward a comprehensive settlement.
Begin said he was also proposing to
Sadat that immediately after ratification
of the treaty by the Egyptian Parliament
and the Israeli Knesset, the borders of the
two countries be opened.
Unlike Begin, who vowed never to
negotiate with the Palestine Liberation
Organization, Carter said the PLO and
other parties would see through open
borders the "tremendous benefits" of
joining the negotiations.
Strong denunciation of Sadat's peace
initiative are expected from the Arab
League meeting in Somalia. And
economic sanctions could .be imposed
against Egypt at an Arab "summit
conference beginning Tuesday in
Baghdad, Iraq.
Syria, once Egypt's partner in making
war on Israel, has called for
"revolutionary violence" against Egypt,
and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A.
Gromyko is in Damascus to assure the
Syrians of Soviet support.

settled count off eoiurt
By JIM Hi: MM EL
Staff W riter
A change in the U NC law school admissions policy
has prompted the plaintiffs in a. reverse
discrimination suit against the school to settle the
case out of court.
Patricia Bostick of Raleigh and Steven Rader of
Charlotte, who filed the suit in April 1978, have
agreed to allow the state to pay them an undisclosed
amount of money.
"Because of alterations in our admissions policy,
further litigation from our standpoint made no
sense." said Robert Byrd, dean of the law school.
Byrd said under the previous admissions policy
special consideration was given to culturally
disadvantaged applicants.
"Our earlier policy looked at factors other than the
LSAT. (Law Scholastic Aptitude Test) and
undergraduate record," Byrd said. "The new policy
looks at more things." The new policy omits the
disadvantaged criterion and includes race and ethnic
origin along with seven other categories, he said.
A formal hearing Wednesday will reveal the
specific amount each of the plaintiffs will receive.
The suit asked for $25,000 for Rader and $10,000
from each of the four defendants for both Rader and
Bostick.
Allen Johnson, former Black Student Movement
president, said the Bakke case has put pressure on
schools to re-evaluate their admissions policies.
"I think the (Bostick) case has been blown out of
proportion," Johnson said. "Race is only one of
many factors in the admissions process. 1 think the
'new law school admissions policy is more a
clarification than anything. I don't think it will make
a lot of difference compared to the previous policy."
Last September several minority groups, including
the BSM, sought to intervene in the case on behalf of
the University.
"(The) applicants seek ,to preserve the only
effective remedy for historic segregation and failure
to dismantle the dual system of public education in
North Carolina in general and legal education in
particular." according to a document filed with the
U.S. Middle District Court in Greensboro.
"Each of the individual and representative
applicants for intervention has an interest in the
continuation of the use of race as a criterion for
admissions," wrote Charlotte attorney Jim Fuller,,
lawyer for the BSM intervenors.
The case resembles the Allen Bakke case, settled in
the Supreme Court last spring. Bakke also charged
the school into which he was seeking admission with
reverse discrimination in admitting a specific number
of blacks: The court ruled in favor of Bakke. saying
race cannot be a decisive factor in an admission
program.
Bostick applied for admission in the fall of 1977. If
she reapplies, her application would be considered
under the new policy. Rader, who applied in the fall
of 1975 attended the Stetson University law school
and later transferred to Wake Forest.
If Carter plan passes
Med school may lose 20 percent of fun
-jig .s .::;
By SUSAN LADD
Staff Writer
Dr. Christopher C. Fordham III, dean of the UNC
School of Medicine, said a cut in federal funding
proposed by the Carter administration would mean a 20
percent cut in federal funds to North Carolina medical
schools.
The UNC School of Medicine is receiving $800,000 in
federal funds this year. The cutback would reduce
funding to each medical school by almost $300
per student. In North Carolina the cuts would amount to
more than $400,000. Nursing, pharmacy and dental
schools will also be affected, Fordham said.-
Fordham and two other deans of state medical
schools called ' the proposed cuts "a breach of faith
between the federal government and health professional
schools of the nation" in a letter of protest sent to North
Carolina newspapers Friday. Also signing the letter were
Dr. Ewald W. Busse of the Duke University School of
Medicine and Dr. William E. Loupus of the East
Carolina University School of Medicine.
Congress is likely to cut funding severely for medical
schools when it deliberates administration budget cuts
Tuesday, the deans said.
"It's part of an overall effort of the administration to
reduce spending," Fordham said. "Personally, I applaud
efforts to reduce spending, but not in a case where an
obligation has already been made."
Fordham said the deans were upset because the
administration was proposing cuts tor a program to
which they had previously committed funding lot three
years. In 1976. Congress passed a law requiring medical
schools to meet certain requirements if they were to
continue to receive per capita funding. The law states
medical schools must continue their present enrollment,
increase the size of second- or third-year classes, and
meet national requirements- for the percentage of
students entering primary-care specialties like family
practice, internal medicine and pediatrics.
Now that UNC-CH. Duke. ECU and other medical
schools are in the first year of meeting those
requirements, the federal government is giving serious
consideration to discontinuing the programs.
"We understand that they have to reduce spending,
but we do feel that there was an obligation to the medical
schools," Fordham said. "The schools responded to the
requirements with the expectation that the program
would be funded for the next three years.
"At this point, there's not much else we can do,"
Fordham said.

mrt&nder's recipe for success
mixes drinks with compassion
i
By KAREN M. VOGEL
Special to the Daily Tar Heel
Women are as likely to flirt with Mack Patterson as
men are to discuss personal problems with him.
Patterson, 22, is a bar manager at Spanky's Restaurant
in Chapel Hill.
"It is surprising what things people say to a bartender.
Sometimes I think people say more than they intend to.
Many customers come in and talk about their divorces.
Other times, people invited me to visit them, party with
them and eat dinner with them," Patterson said.
"Bartending is a service job. That means I have to
listen to what customers say and always be polite. The
customer is always right, at least that's what 1 let them
think. I guess the key to working successfully in a
restaurant is having plenty of patience. I listen to the guy
when he tells me about his personal problems and I
ignore or joke off any propositions I might get."
Patterson said being patient becomes more difficult
when a customer criticizes ' his competence. "For
instance, many of the people who come into Spanky's
are from states that have had liquor-by-the-drink for
many years. If they don't like the way you mix a drink or
are upset because you don't serve their favorite drink, no
matter how obscure the drink is, they let you know it.
They're armchair bartenders."
Although he gets angry in such situations, Patterson
said he tries to maintain his composure and handle these
customers in a diplomatic way. For example, he said,
"Sometimes people demand a drink on the house
because they have ordered so many drinks that night. I
tell these people that Spanky's doesn't serve drinks on
the house because it's illegal to do so in North Carolina."
Although he may serve hundreds of drinks in one
night, Patterson said he hardly drinks at all. "I'd choose
a Coke over a mixed drink any time. In fact, I usually
drink milk or orange juice while I'm working at the bar. I
don't even like beer much. I'm often amazed at the
amount of alcohol people can consume."
Since graduating from UNC last December.
Patterson has worked full time at his job. But he said he
had previously worked part time serving beer and wine
in both Spanky's and Harrison's, another Chapel Hill
(restaurant.
"When I got the job at Spanky's. 1 had to learn how to
mix drinks fast," he said. "I guess I learned the most
from the professional bartenders who worked here
They watched me mix drinks and corrected me any time
I made a mistake. After one hard night, you know how

'customer is always right'
From Staff and Wire Reports
UNC President William C. Friday said
Sunday HEW officials informed him
contacts between HEW and Sen. Jim
Edwards of Caldwell County were not
authorized by HEW.
"I really don't think it's that serious,"
Friday said. "I think it was someone
involving himself who was not really
authorized."
Reports Saturday said three officials of
H EW, rather than one as an earlier report
had said, contacted Edwards about the
dispute between HEW and the UNC
system.
The contacts made it seem that HEW
was trying to bypass Friday in the
negotiations on desegregation of UNC.
Gov. Jim Hunt last week criticized
HEW's move, saying all negotiations
should be handled through Friday.
Friday said David Tatel, director of
HEW's Office of Civil Rights, told him
the contacts had been made without
Tatel's knowledge and were not
sanctioned. Friday said HEW also called
to correct the impression that they were
trying to bypass the UNC Board of
Governors and Hunt. He added HEW
told him they had no idea of what had
happened.
HEW and UNC. still have not reached
an agreement on how much the state
should spend on improving the five
predominantly black universities within
the system. HEW is asking for $120
million while UNC has suggested $21. If
an agreement is not reached. HEW could
begin cutting off about $90 million in
federal funds the University system
receives each year.
Edwards, who is chairman of the
Senate Appropriations Committee on
Education, asked Friday at a committee
meeting last week about his position on a
proposal for spending $60 million to $80
million to upgrade the black campuses.

-A victim's story - :
'He was choking me. . . I could see him. . . I was screaming. . . I had to stop screaming or else'
By CHRIS BURRITT
Staff Writer
The woman sitting across the room picks up a'ruler from
the desk in front of her. Turning it slowly in her hands, she
begins to recount the incident, speaking calmly and never
looking at me for more than a second or two.
"I was at home, alone. It was a Saturday night. I had been
out to dinner with a couple. I decided to stay up all night and
paint. I had the music real loud so I wouldn't hear any noises
to frighten me, and I heard a crash.
"I just thought 1 had the stereo turned up too loud. I
thought something had vibrated off and that 1 would finish
what I was doing and then go in and look. So 1 finished what I
was doing, maybe two or three minutes later, and 1 went into
the living room and this person jumped out from behind the
wall and grabbed me and said, 'Shut up! I'm going to kill you.
I want you."
These are the recollections of a rape victim, a Chapel Hill
woman who since October 1976 hashad to live with the
horribly vivid memories of not one but two rapes, of two
assaults by the same man within 2'2 weeks.
Last August, almost two years after the rapes, the woman
(using the name Anne for an interview) put together a slide-and-tape
presentation of her rape experiences. The
presentation consists of a tape recording of her feelings about
the rape crisis and the slides of the apartment and street
where she lived and of herself after the first rape.
For details on Rape A wareness Week see
related story on page 4.
As part of Rape Awareness Week, the presentation will be
shown Saturday, March 31, during a seminar at Carrboro
Town Hall.
In her office on the UNC campus, Anne, wearing slacks
and a madras blouse under a green chamois cloth shirt, lays
the ruler down on the desk and runs her hands through her
long hair. The light passing through the window behind her is
fading, casting shadows across her face and the room.
"My first instinct was to laugh," she says, recalling the
night the rapist grabbed her from behind. "I thought
someone was playing a trick on me, I mean, someone 1 know.
But I realized I didn't know him and I was terrified. He was
choking me and then 1 could see him and 1 was screaming
and 1 realized 1 had to stop screaming or else he was going to
kill me.
"All I could do was shake. I asked him if I could put my
diaphragm in and he said yeah. He followed me wherever I
went, you know, I couldn't get away from him.
"And 1 talked to him for a long time. It seems to me like I
talked for three hours but it was probably 1 Vi or two. 1 was
trying to talk him out of it, just showing him that he was a
person. If I treated him like a person he would treat me like a
person. 1 don't know," she says, her voice less calm now.
"Well I got tired of talking and 1 got tired of him being
there. And he got tired of talking too. I mean everytime I
would get quiet, he would start doing sex things to me. But
then, I mean, 1 just ran out of things to say. I was exhausted.
There wasn't anything I could do. After that he didn't have
any problem."
Nineteen days later, while Anne was still receiving medical.
psychiatric and legal counsel and the day after police lifted
the stakeout of her apartment, the rapist, who she describes
as "a white man, tall and thin with very little to identify him
by," returned. This time he broke in through another window
while she was out and waited for her to return.
"He didn't stay very long, only for about an hour," she
says. "But this time, although he didn't choke me and did not
do any actual physical abuse other than rape, it was terrifying
because there was a lot of pyschological violence.
"He thought I would have been glad to see him. I think he
thought I was lonely and that I was going to be glad to see
him or something. I don't know!" she says, raising her voice,
seeming repulsed by the memory of the rapist's attitude
toward her.
"At any rate, this time he really made love to me. He would
hold my arms and legs around him so that he could sort of
think that maybe I was holding onto him.
"Then he got mad. He wouldn't let me put my diaphragm
in. He started kicking the bed and said he was going to burn
