N. C. campus paper trying to become a force9

movement to meet the challenges of
So goes the opening sentence of an editorial comment
in a new publication seen on North Carolina campuses,
Combined Forces, "The Triangle's Progressive Campus
Newspaper," based in Raleigh.
Ted Johnson, a UNC graduate and the coordinator of
the paper, and Neil Goldberg, editor, began production
of Combined Forces in September.
Johnson said the aim of the paper was to cover items
that are not "in the mainstream press."
"We don't want to just be a view, but become a force
for people (to motivate them) to get involved." He also
said it was not intended to be a "following behind a ban
ner" type movement, but a total group effort.

Brainstorm will look familiar to many
of the North Carolinians attending one of
its two state premiere shows tonight in
Raleigh parts of the movie were filmed
at Research Triangle Park, Duke Universi
ty and the Oakwood section of .Raleigh
and in Chapel Hill.
The film, starring the late Natalie
Wood, Cliff Robertson, Christopher
Walken and Louise Fletcher, had the big
gest budget of any previous film shot in
North Carolina. The fact that Brainstorm
was made here at all may be largely due to
the efforts of the North Carolina Film Of
fice in Raleigh.
Bill Arnoll, director of the Film Office,
was involved with the project for over
three years. After two trips to Hollywood
in 1980 to sell the state as a good place to
film, MGM contacted Arnoll about loca
tions for a script the movie company was
considering the script for Brainstorm.
Arnoll and his staff put together a
package of information on possible sites
and sent it to MGM. Three weeks later a
group from MGM, including director
Douglas Trumbull, came to look at the
It was on this excursion that Arnoll
learned more about why the MGM of
ficials were considering North Carolina.
Trumbull told Arnoll that he had a "mad
scientist friend" who told Trumbull that if
the kind of research described in the movie
were going on anywhere in the United
States, it would be in the Research
The research in the movie concerns a
technique for recording people's thoughts
and emotions on tape. This technique is
discovered by two scientists played by
Fletcher and Walken who work for a
large corporate think tank.

Joey Pillow added, "A lot of people can express their

The present staff of the paper will sit down and talk
about what needs to be covered and reach a consensus,
Johnson said. He added, "There's a struggle in a good
way; there'd be a discussion for hours on what would be
in the paper."
Dowling said the paper's staff was also now in the
process of developing an editorial policy. She also men

those scenes, Arnoll said. "They were so
taken with the area that they decided not
only to film here but also to call the loca

movie," he added.
The Film Office worked two years on
the project before the filming actually
started. "We tried to find locations close
to each other in order to minimize travel
expenses for the filming crew, which con
sisted of almost a hundred people," Arnoll
said. "We were able to find sites with dif

Although tonight's showings were to

"Rather than move the premiere up a

No mikeman set
for Wake game
By ANDY HODGES
UNC will not have a mikeman at this
Saturday's football game against Wake
Forest, but no official decision has been
made regarding a mikeman for the rest of
the season, a University official said
Mikeman Kenny Ward was fired last
week for reasons including jokes and
remarks made in poor taste, missing prac
tices and not working well with the band
and cheerleaders, said Sharon R. Mitchell,
assistant dean in the department of student
Mitchell said that she has spoken with
several other University officials about the
selection of a new mikeman since last
week, but no action has been decided on.
"I think we are still very much involved
in the evaluation of the spirit unit," Mit
chell said. "As far as an actual decision,
we're pretty much where we have been."
She said those involved in the decision
are "leaning more toward the use of the
expertise of the cheerleaders" and more
crowd participation, but added that the
situation is being handled game by game.
Varsity cheerleader co-captain Mitch
Barnes said the cheerleaders are going to
"stick to basics" in preparing for the game
without a mikeman.
"Just plain cheering, I think, will work
better than the same routines we've used in
the past with mikemen," he said. "We're
going to try to get our fans behind the
team without relying on jokes, but just on

PGland's Walesa wins
Nobel Peace Prize
The Associated Press
OSLO, Norway Lech Walesa,
founder of Poland's Solidarity labor
movement which shook the Communist
world, won the Nobel Peace Prize on
Wednesday, for his fight on behalf of the
"unconquerecf longing" of all people for
peace and freedom.
Walesa quickly said he would give the
approximately $190,000 award to Poland's
Roman Catholic Church, which has been
outspoken in its support of the labor
movement. Solidarity admirers around the world
praised Walesa's selection. Pope John
Paul II wired congratulations to his
40-year-old compatriot and President
Reagan hailed the award as a victory of
"moral force over brute force."
Polish authorities did not say whether
they would permit Walesa to leave Poland
to accept the award, and the labor leader
said he was considering sending a relative
in his place. Soviet dissident Andrei
Sakharov, the only other Peace Prize
laureate of the East bloc, did not accept
his 1975 award because he feared he would
not be allowed to return home. His wife.
Local specialty shops offer
fresh, natural alternatives
By SHARON SHERIDAN
Europeans may stop at the
greengrocer's, the bakery and the meat
market to do their food shopping. But
Americans prefer to get all their food at
one supermarket. This concerns owners of
specialty food stores in America.
"All I can do to combat that is offer a
real fresh product at a nearly competitive
price," said George Lawrence, owner of
The Bread Shop at 411 West Franklin
Street, next to McDonalds. Americans
consider it an inconvenience to have to
stop at several food shops, he said.
When you shop as the Europeans do,
you know who is making your bread, he
said. "You feel better when you know
who's making what you're buying."
Six days a week, the Bread Shop makes
fresh, whole grain breads and pastries
without preservatives or additives. The
bakery uses about two tons of flour a
week, and the ovens work more than 20
hours a day.
"During the winter we start bread at 1 1
in the morning and we finish at four the.
next morning. At five in the morning the
baker who does the sweets comes in. He
works until 10 or 11 a.m."

going in the stands when we feel the team
needs it most."
Mitchell and UNC band director Major
John Yesulaitis met with Ward last week
to discuss the administration's concerns
and actions, but Mitchell said that was not
the first time the concerns had been ex
pressed. She said she did not know if any
University officials had spoken with Ward
personally regarding his performances ear
ly in the season, but added that "the ad
ministration's concerns were given to him
through the proper channels."
She said that Ward was given sugges
tions and evaluations by the cheerleaders
and band after each game.
Ward said earlier this week that in his
opinion he has been told nothing official
and is still waiting to hear from Mitchell or
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor of stu
"She (Mitchell) told me that my job as
mikeman was technically over, but that
was before she asked me to resign," Ward
Mitchell said, however, that at least part
of the issue is settled.
"I guess the official stance is that Kenny
is not the mikeman," she said. "I can't
imagine how he can have missed anything.
We explained our concerns to him clearly
and still in a way that was very human."
Mitchell said last week that a large part
of these concerns were based on letters and
comments received by the administration
saying that some parts of Ward's perfor
mances were in poor taste.

Lawrence said, bread conforms to the
needs of machines. At The Bread Shop,
the bread is given the chance to rise several
times and chemical are not added.
"When yeast reacts with the sugars, it
gives off gases and enzymes and that's
what imparts a good taste to bread,"
Lawrence said. The big industrial com
panies add chemicals which speed up the
activity of the yeast. "They also add
chemicals which simulate the taste given
off naturally by the yeast if you ferment
it," he said.
"We never have considered ourselves
part of a natural food movement," he
said. "It's old fashioned, that's all."
The Bread Shop, open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Saturday, has been in
Chapel Hill about eight years. About 65
percent of the shop's business is wholesale.
If you walk into The Bread Shop, the
most striking feature may be the smell of
fresh-baked bread. But this is one thing
Lawrence can't enjoy.
"We can't smell it. For a baker who
works five to six days a week, after a while
that smell is just background noise," he
"I get a lot of pleasure out of doing
work that feeds people. And there's a cer
tain sense of sculpturing," Lawrence said.
