lOiomeini denounces Mideast pact
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Iran's Moslem patriarch, Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini, denounced the LJS.-sponsored Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty
Sunday as increasing "the dangers that have always been posed by Israel in the.
The 78-year-old Khomeini, who inspired the revolt that toDDled Shah
Mohammad Reza Phlavi's monarchy said in a major foreign policy statement
broadcast by Iran radio that the bilateral Egyptian-Israeli treay "is against the
interests of the Arab world
He said Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, by agreeing to the pact, "has made
his connection to the U.S. imperialist government more obvious."
Kissinger skeptical about SALT treaty
WASHINGTON (AP Former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said
Sunday prospects for Senate ratification of an arms limitation treaty are dim
now, but that the Carter administration still can win congressional approval.
"Right now, 1 think it looks shaky," Kissinger said. "But the administration,
with a determined effort, can make it much closer and perhaps prevail."
Kissinger, who was secretary of state in the administration of former
President Richard M . N ixon and Gerald R. Ford, declined to take a position on '
whether the SALT treaty should be ratified, saying he has not seen a text of the
Kissinger said his principal concerns were about the ability of the United
States to retain its credibility as a world power in the 1980s.
Meanwhile, the Communist Party newspaper Pravda on Sunday accused
American "enemies" of a new strategic arms limitation treaty of trying to
"choke the newborn baby in its cradle" by blocking Senate ratification.
Invading troops push into Uganda
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) Invading Tanzanian troops and Ugandan rebels
were reported to have pushed to within 20 miles of the Ugandan capital of
Kampala on Sunday. President Idi Amin's government clamped a curfew on
the city and closed Uganda's only international airport.
The Ugandan government radio admitted the Tanzanian-led force had
"penetrated deep into Uganda."
The broadcast, monitored in Nairobi, said the government had shut down
Entebbe Airport, 20 miles south of Kampala, and ordered a nighttime curfew in
Kampala. "Anyone violating Ugandan air space will be shot down without
warning," the broadcast said.
House passes voter challenge bill
The House last week passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Trish Hunt of Chapel
Hill that would prevent massive voter challenges similar to those presented in
Orange County last year.
The bill shifts the burden of proof to the challenger, requiring the challenger
to show probable cause that a person is illegally registered. The measure also
states the challenger must appear at an elections board hearing for each
challenge made. The previous law did not require the challenger to attend the
Orange County manager arrested
Orange County Manager Samuel M. Gattis was arrested Thursday and
charged with three misdemeanor counts of using county garage services and
auto parts to repair his personal car.
The charges were filed after the State Bureau of Investigation probed
practices at the Orange County garage.
Charles B. Ritch, a mechanic at the garage, also was arrested on a similar
charge. Both could receive sentences of six months in prison, a $500 fine, or
both on each charge.

Ma suicide product of isolation C
By MARTHA WAGGONER
. ' Staff Writer
Isolation from each other and the outside world
helped the Rev. Jim. I ones lead more than 900 persons to
their deaths at the People's Temple in Jonestown.
Guyana, medical sociologist Rose Laub Coser told a
UNC audience last week.
Coser spoke Thursday night in Manning Hall to
about 175 persons at the Doris Selo Memorial Lecture,
sponsored. by the department of sociology. Coser. a
professor of sociology and community medicine at the
State University of New York at Stoneybrook, was
introduced as being "interested in social structure,
particularly the social structure of the family and the
social structure of communes."
The Jonestown tragedy was "unique in one way that
for 20 days, the horror story of Nov. 1 8 made front page
news in the New York Times,"' Coser said.
In less than five hours, 911 adults and children were
killed or commited suicide, Coser saiJ. There was no
threat on their lives from the outside "except for the
demented statements of their leader," she said.
Those who joined the People's Temple and
participated in the mass suicide came from every walk of
life. "They were the poor, the rich, the ones in the
middle," Coser said. Their numbers ranged from lawyers
to convicts and included "those with a strong social
conscience." Coser said.
But their biographical sketches actually tell us little
about the people involved. "At best, they can tell us who
obeyed Jim Jones." Coser said.
As a child, Jones would kill animals and then'say a
mass for their death. His mother predicted he would be a
messiah, Coser said.
The Jonestown community was isolated by design,
Coser said. "It operated in secrecy. Its confined members
had to break all ties with the outside. This prevented
"Jonestown's members had no place to go," she said.
"Isolated from exchanges and any but mimimal contact
with the outside, Jonestown's members had no place to
go, except to one man "
This man, whom the members called Dad, formed an
almost incestuous community, Coser said. He had
sexual relations with men and women and bragged to his
lawyer that the number reached 16 per day at some
points. The members developed what Coser termed an
"infantile dependency" on Jones.
This dependency was emphasized by .Jonestown's
almost complete isolation. The only way to reach
Jonestown is by air or by a long boat trip. "There was
hardly any contact with the outside for the rank and file
members," Coser said.
To add to the isolation, the community was operated
almost like a concentration camp, Coser said. There
were guards at the church and dogs at the fences.
Members were beaten and tortured. "The individual had
to submit to humiliation, physically and
psychologically. It reminds us of processes which took
place in concentration camps."
Because ol punishment and lack of personal
relationships, members often regressed to childhood and
lost any idea of the sequence of time. "Nobody could
trust anybody." Coser said. Jones would conduct
catharsis sessions which involved an outpouring of
emotions by all members except for the elderly, who
But Jonestown, "perverse as it was, contained the
species of the genius of the Utopian community," Coser
said. Members included the "socially committed and the
morally courageous and those yearning for a new
morality," she said. As with other communes,
Jonestown tended to be regulated from above. "It ended
in total personality absorption."
When people arrived at Jonestown, their money and
passports were confiscated, Coser said. People would
sell life insurance policies and give the money to the
temple. "It became a problem merely to dispose of the
wealth that had piled up."
But Coser said that "emotional energies cannot simply
be rechannejed for the common, or not so common,
good. When people are cut off from personal
relationships, they have no energy to channel, even in
time of terror."
Coser said the members must have felt dead inside.
"The damned and the lost and the hopeful who flocked
to Jones did so because the society had failed to provide
meaningful bonds. For years he gave them opium. In the
end, he gave them cyanide."

Patterson said he has seen very few
drunks or fights since working at
Spanky's. However, petty theft can be a
problem, he said. "In Spanky's. 150 to
160 glasses disappear each month. I have
to keep Jabs on all stolen merchandise
and order more if need be." he said.
In addition to keeping utensil
inventories, Patterson maintains a liquor
inventory, orders liquor each week,
cleans the bar one last time when the
restaurant finally closes at 1:30 a.m..
counts the day's tips, deposits the money
made each day and takes care of a large
amount of bar equipment. On a typical
day, Patterson does not leave Spanky's
until almost 4 a.m. As Patterson said,
"The life of a bartender is not an easy one,
especially if he or she is the bar manager.
"But. if I keep a sharp wit and am as
tolerant as I can be, my job is much more
pleasant and the day goes a lot faster.
Appreciation goes - two ways. If I
appreciate my customers and show them
1 care, then they'll be much more likely to
appreciate me and respect my work."

Friday said he didn't know when H E W
would contact him next, but said it would
probably be some time this week.
In other developments, the Rev. W.W.
Finlator, a North Carolina civil rights
leader, urged President Carter to cut off
funds to the university svstem.
The request by Finolator, who is
chairman of the N.C. Advisory
Committee to the U.S. Commission on
Civ il Rights, came in a telegram to Carter
Friday. Finolator said the funds should
be cut off because UNC has not come up
with an acceptable desegregation plan.
General Assembly gets proposal
to reduce pot-possession penalty
RALEIGH (AP) A proposal to
reduce penalties for possession of up to a
pound of marijuana and for growing
small amounts of the illegal weed has
been filed in the General Assembly.
Rep. Al Adams, D-Wake, who
successfully sponsored a 1 977 law that
reduced penalties for possessing;an ounee
of pot; filed the new bilt lfof'5 fbrmal
introduction last Monday.
The new measure would make it a
misdemeanor to possess ' less than a
pound of the substance. Under current
law, possession of more than an ounce is a
Also under Adams' bill, a person could
grow up to 20 marijuana plants and be
subject only to misdemeanor
prosecution, instead of the current
felonies of marijuana manufacture or
possession with intent to sell.
The proposals have been
recommended by district attorneys from
around the state, Adams said.
"1 don't look at this at all as a loosening
of the marijuana laws," Adams said. "The
district attorneys are not known for
loosening criminal Jaws. It's their bill."
Under the bill, the penalty for
possession of more than an ounce but less
than a pound would be a maximum
$2,000 fine and two years in prison. For
less than an ounce, the maximum penalty
would remain a $100 fine and 30 days in
jail. It would add the provision, however,
that the sentence could be suspended only
after the fine and court costs had been
The bill would correct a problem
created by his 1977 measure, Adams said,
by establishing a middle-ground
'It sets up an intermediate offense," he
said. "Now you've got a gap from a $100
fine for less than an ounce, and the next
step is a five-year felony."
The provision for growing marijuana
plants would also allow the courts to
make a distinction between casual
growers and big-time producers, he said.
"You have kids caught with five, or six
plants in a Dixie Cup in their kitchen
window, and under the present law that's
either a 1 0-year or a five-year felony," he
