Chapel Hill Town Manager Gene Shipman has recommended
revamping the organization and the training-program for the
town's Public Safety Officer program to alleviate some problems
which have plagued the system.
PSOs combine the duties of fire and police personnel with
:mergency medical training.
But Shipman recommended no immediate changes in the
shifts of town firemen, regarded as a key reason for the firemen's
opposition to the PSO program. Shipman's recommendations
were included in the town's quarterly report.
Since the Town Council voted to implement the PSO program
several years ago, the town firemen have been vocal in their
opposition to the program. Police officers complaints have been
The council voted to phase in the PSO program, by hiring
PSOs when fire and police personnel leave their jobs. But
implementation of the program has been slowed by personnel
Many who oppose the PSO program have questioned the
safety of combining the roles of police and fire personnel and
have complained of a lack of organizational structure. It has not
been established whether Police Chief Herman Stone or Fire
Chief Everett Lloyd has final supervisory control over PSO's.
As a result of problems within the program, there has been a
high turnover among PSOs
In response to the problems in the PSO program, Shipman,
Lloyd, Stone, communications consultant Steve Putnam and the
town personnel director formed a task force in December 1978.
Shipman's report was based on the work of the task force.
Shipman's recommendations stress the need for clarification
of the roles of PSOs and improvement in their communication
with the fire and police departments.

Rooftop shot of anti-Iranian demonstrators Friday
The Associated Press
Word that the ousted Shah of Iran was on the move
again drew an angry new warning Sunday from Moslem
militants that they will put their U.S. Embassy hostages
It would be a big mistake if the shah leaves the U nited
States, a militant spokesman said after learning that
former Iranian monarch Mohammad Reza Pahlavi had
left New York for Texas. But Iran's acting foreign
minister said a trial of the hostages would not take place
The shah flew before dawn Sunday to an Air Force
hospital in San Antonio for an indefinite period of
recuperation from gallbladder surgery s " "
and cancer treatment he underwent in I
Egyptian officials, who have offered
Pahlavi asylum in Egypt, said in Cairo
they believe the ailing ex-monarch is
likely to remain in the United States
for several more weeks. One said the
shah -would go to the Bahamas, t
though the Bahamian government has
not confirmed that report. I
U.S. officials said nothing about the
shah s eventual destination. President
Carter, asked whether he might be offered permanent
U.S. asylum, replied, "I cannot answer that now."
The militant students holding 50 American hostages
at the embassy apparently believed the trip to Texas was
a prelude to the shah's departure elsewhere.
"If the shah leaves the United States for another
country, we will try the hostages," one said when
reached by telephone.
"This is another trick taken by the CIA to protect the
shah," said another. "But everyone in the world knows
he cannot be protected against the will of God and the
will of the people."
In New York, the U .N. Security Council continued its
efforts to solve the U.S.-Iranian crisis. The 15-member
Council began its debate Saturday evening, but the
meeting has been boycotted by Iran.

Ghotbzadeh, a member of Khomeini's all-powerful
Revolutionary Council, reacted more cautiously than
the students, perhaps because the council leadership is
reluctant to lose its trump card by trying the hostages
and perhaps provoking a U.S. military strike.
The prime concern of the day for most Iranians was
the voting on the referendum on the proposed Islamic
constitution, which would make Khomeini absolute
ruler for life. Even critics said it was sure to be ratified.
Voting will conclude Monday.
site appeals tenure aecision
By ROANN BISHOP
and CAROLYN WORSLEY
Approximately 200 black students and members of
black organizations filled the hallway and lined the
stairs outside the Morehead Faculty Lounge Friday in
support of Sonja Stone, who went before a special
committee of the UNC Board of Trustees to present her
appeal for tenure.
Stone, an assistant professor and former co-director
of the Curriculum in African and Afro-American
Studies, was denied tenure last spring by the faculty
hearings committee. She subsequently was denied
tenure by Samuel R. Williamson, dean of the College
of Arts and Sciences; Provost J. Charles Morrow; and
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor.
The students participating in Friday's
demonstration said they felt the repeated denial of
tenure by the UNC administration demonstrated the
University's lack of commitment to recruit and retain
black faculty members.
The students rallied in front of South Building at
1:30 p.m. Friday, calling for the recruitment and
retention of black faculty members and the
establishment of an office of minority and
disadvantaged student affairs at the University.
"We maintain that creation of an office of minority
and disadvantaged affairs will ensure the continued
presence of minorities on this campus," said William
Bynum, Black Student Movement chairperson.
"One man cannot conceivably solve the racial
problem that exists in the University," he said, referring
to an alternative proposal which calls for the
appointment of an adviser to the chancellor to handle
minority and disadvantaged affairs.
BSM Administrator of Information Mark Canady,
citing a list of Stone's educational and leadership
credentials, said she was a highly qualified, competent
"If she goes we will lose the only black director of the
African and Afro-American curriculum there is," he
said. "There are not enough Dr. Stones up here and
they're trying to get rid of this one. There are going to
be plenty of other Dr. Stones if we don't stop it from
N.C. Black Student Coalition representative Stella
Jones said similar protests were occurring at other
North Carolina colleges, but in the past UNC-CH has
been the focal point. "UNC is the turning point," she
said. "If we win here everyone else will win."
Jones said black students must re-evaluate their
priorities, citing the low rally turnout as an example of
lack of support among some black students.
"We are up here to learn so that we can go back into
communities and make the black community of
America stronger," she said.
At 2:30 p.m. the students marched to Morehead
Building, site of the tenure hearing, chanting "We're
fired up, we won't take no more."
On the steps of the Morehead Building Student Body
President J.B. Kelly endorsed the Long Report, which
calls for more extensive recruitment of black students
and faculty members at UNC.
At about 3 p.m. participants in the rally entered the
Morehead Building and attempted to mount the stairs
leading to the Faculty Lounge where the hearing was to
be held. Morehead Planetarium Director Anthony
Jenzano tried to restrain the crowd by stating that the
upstairs area was closed to the public but the group
went past him, into the building.
The protest was peaceful, however. The students sat
quietly in the hallway and on the steps singing "We
Shall Overcome" and holding signs urging support for
Stone and the retention of black faculty and staff.
The students remained outside the hearing room for
the duration of the hearirig, approximately two and a
When Stone emerged from the hearings, she said, "I
have a good case. Since this is not the last level of
appeal, we are actually building a case as we go. The
panel was neutral. I have no reason to believe that they
won't be fair and objective."
The committee, composed of trustees W. Travis
Porter of Durham, and George R. Ragsdale and
Newman A. Townsend Jr., both of Raleigh, left
through a service elevator before they could be reached
for comment. The panel will make a recommendation
in Stone's case to the full Board of Trustees at its Dec.
UNC 2nd to Devils again

GREENSBORO With about eight minutes left in Saturday night's
Big Four consolation game and with Duke's Bill Foster and UNC's Dean
Smith sitting on one end of the floor taking in all the action, the Blue Devil
and Tar Heel student sections decided it was time to, whoop it up and
make some noise.
So, as N.C. State proceeded to edge Wake Forest, 70-65 for third place,
the crowd which knew this was the next-to-last Big Four Tournament
moved into high gear with standing cheers against one" another. Smith and
Foster, looking straight ahead, appeared oblivious to the commotion.
The two coaches had a game to attend to, and when the Duke-UNC
championship game unfolded about 9: 15 p.m., it marked an instant replay
of the 1978 Big Four championship match-up, when the Blue Devils
defeated the Tar Heels, 78-68.
The margin Saturday night was 12, as Duke displayed an awesome fast
break, pesky defense and dominating center Mike Gminski to take their
second and second straight Big Four title, 86-74.
"They shot well, played strong and beat us," Carolina's Mike O'Koren
said. "After that 1 have no explanation."
No arguments there, Mike. Duke shot 62 percent from the field to
UNC's 46 percent and out-rebounded the Tar Heels, 39-29. The Blue
Devil defense, equally harassing in man-to-man or zone, forced 14
turnovers and intimidated Carolina field goal efforts, often very makeable.
"We didn't shoot well, but Duke had a lot to do with that," U NC coach
Dean Smith said after the game. "We had eight layups that were blocked
or something else happened inside to cause us to miss. That's going to hurt
a lot of percentages."
Much of the credit for the Duke win went to Gminski, who was named
tournament MVP. The 6-foot-ll senior had 21 points against the Tar
Heels after scoring 26 Friday night as the Blue Devils edged Wake in the
tourney's opening game, 72-70.
Gminski blocked nine shots against the Deacs slapping away four of
Guy Morgan's on four straight posessions and hit both ends of a 1-and-l
with 39 seconds left to boost Duke from a 69-69 tie.
"This is my last time around, and I'm going to enjoy the hell out of this
year," Gminski said in a jubilant Duke dressing room Saturday night.
"We're playing smarter with more intensity. Since the games don't count
in the league standings, it's going to be a great confidence-builder."
The opening round on Friday did anything but instill confidence in
either Wake or N.C. State. Duke failed to score for nearly five minutes
late in the second half but Wake went eight minutes, with no points,
although center Jim Johnstone showed his improvement from last season,
leading Wake with 18 against Duke and 17 in the loss to State.

ition to park-ride lot
DSM Issdsr Wr.'lsni Dynum stend before crowd et protest reliy
...students gathered Saturday in Support of Sonja Stone's tenure appeal
By ANNE-MARIE DOWNEY
Chapel Hill's recently completed park-ride lot
study recommends that the town delay expansion
of its park-ride facilities until the University
finishes its study of campus parking needs.
Park-ride lots are parking lots where commuters
can leave their cars and ride buses into the
downtown area or campus. Statistics compiled for
the study reveal that the two existing park-ride
lots the University-owned Airport lot and the
Kroger Plaza lot are used mostly by University
Since the town's park-ride plans are expected to
be delayed, the town transportation staff has
recommended that the money budgeted for park
ride lots in fiscal 1980 be used to accelerate needed
bus replacements. The Town Council will consider
this proposal Dec. 10.
The town is not pulling back from its
commitment to park-ride lots but simply is
delaying the program, Town Planning Director
Mike Jennings said.
The possibility of overextending' the already
crowded town bus system also was a factor in
recommending the delay or park-ride plans,
The study identifies six areas that need some type
of park-ride facility, but it recommends that the
town only proceed with plans for one lot. The study
concludes that the town should lease property on
N.C. 54 East for the park-ride lot, which would
mainly serve commuters to and from the Research
Triangle Park and Raleigh. The lot would, be paid
for by a one-year grant from the N.C. Department
of Transportation. After a year, the town would
have to assume the lot's cost or discontinue its use.
The study committee included John Temple,
UNCs vice chancellor for business and finance;
Terry Lathrop, the town's transportation board
chairman; and representatives from the town
planning board and N.C. Memorial Hospital.
The committee concluded that the town should
not invest money in other park-ride lots until town
and University parking needs are clarified by a
University parking study.
The University's study, expected to be completed
in six weeks, will examine the po&sibility of
establishing a park-ride lot at the proposed site of
the $21-million athletic center near Mason Farm
Road, Temple said. The study also will ajsess the
impact of the recently opened Manning Drive
If the Univeriity can operate a park-ride tot
adjacent to the planned athletic center near south
campus. Temple said he questioned the need for
any other park-ride lots in the town.
Temple also said that the cost, which wai a key
concern expressed in the committee report, would
be less because the athletic center lot could be
served by existing bus routes and would not require
an expensive expansion in bus service.
Town Transportation Director Bob Godding
said the study reflected growing concern among
University and town officials about the increaiing
costs of transportation service.
As part of the park-ride lot study. Temple
predicted that the cost of the current level of town
bus service would double in the next five years,
from $1,280,293 to $2,573,070. The University
shares the cost of the bus system with Chapel Hill
Temple said the University would decide
