Anxious students pack around the Carolina Union television Monday waiting hopefully that this will be the day Laura reappears after
her two-year absence from 'General Hospital, an unfortunate homecoming for professors who teach 3 p.m. classes.
Laura finally returns to eager General Hospital fans
By AMY BRAN EN
Luke shed a tear as he stood in the apartment he
and Laura shared almost two years ago before her
disappearance. The building was about to be torn
down another memory ripped away from him. It
was the final blow; he would never see his beloved
Or would he?
As he stood in Wyndham's Department Store trying
on a suit, he suddenly felt a chill sweep through his
body. A chill much like the one that swept through
almost everyone gathered in front of theUniori televi
sion Monday afternoon. Unlike Luke, however, the
crowd knew what would happen. The small hooded
figure which had been following Luke around for the
entire show was Laura.
That's right, she's back. After an extended absence
from General Hospital, Laura Webber-Baldwin-Spencer
is back in Port Charles. About 150 diehard
GH fans gathered around the Union television to
watch her return.
Many of the students present had followed Luke
and Laura throughout their adventures and cheered
her return to the show.
"I think it's great," said John Diamantstein, a law
student. "The show needed something to get the in
terest back. It wasn't as great as it used to be."
"I've been watching the show for nine years,"
senior Lori Guttschalk said. "I think Laura's return is
a bigger event than when they got married."
A crowd was also gathered around the Union televi
sion in November, ,19&Lwhen the famed couple was
Students were disappointed that Laura didn't show
on Friday as scheduled and as many N.C. newspapers
"I was really disappointed, i missed happy hour to
see it and she didn't show," one student said.
It wasn't just students who were excited about
Laura's return, according to sophomore Angela
"My econ recitation was cancelled because of this,"
she said. "We begged the teacher to let us watch it.
She said we could on the condition that we tell her
The show kept students on the edge of their seats as
references to Luke's former love were made constant
ly. The crowd grew more and more excited as the
camera focused-in several times on a pair of feet which
in the end turned out to be Laura's.
She finally appeared at Wyndham's as she watched
Luke from behind. TJressed in a hooded raincoat,
Laura reappeared with just as much mystery as she
had disappeared almost two years ago.
Although Laura's appearance was brief and no ex
planation was made for her absence, the crowd did not
seem to mind waiting until the last minute of the show
to see her. But tune in to get the scoop at 3 pm. today
for another episode of America's formerly No. I soap.

LONDON Europe's first cruise
missiles arrived Monday at a U.S. air base
west of London, provoking outcries from
Britain's opposition lawmakers and anti
nuclear protesters who called the step "a

easily withdraw the low-flying missiles if
American and Soviet negotiators reach an
arms-control agreement in Geneva. The
talks are scheduled to last six more weeks.
Just after dawn, a U.S. Air Force C-141
Starlifter transport landed at the air base at
Greenham Common, in the English coun
tryside 50 miles west of London. Armed
soldiers ringed the plane as helicopters
hovered overhead and workers unloaded
two crates containing the U.S. nuclear
Women protesters, encamped outside
the Greenham Common base for the past
26 months, watched the missiles arrive in
stunned silence. But later, police reported,
17 women were arrested as they attempted
to blockade a base gate.
Several hours after the missiles had been
unloaded, Defense Secretary Michael
Heseltine informed Parliament of their ar
rival, shouting to make himself heard
above opposition lawmakers who
screamed "Shame! Shame!"
Heseltine did not specify how many
missiles were in the first shipment.
As he spoke, about 120 anti-nuclear
protesters snarled traffic around the
building. Police said eight were arrested.
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was

Europe of modern medium-range missiles.
That monopoly, we simply cannot
The missiles are the first of 572 cruise
and Pershing 2 missiles that the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization plans to
deploy starting next month, if the Geneva
talks remain stalled. The next round is
scheduled for today.
The missiles are to be deployed in Bri
tain, West Germany, Italy, Belgium and
the Netherlands. They are meant to
balance, the Soviet deployment of about
360 triple-warhead SS-20 missiles.
The Soviets have threatened to quit the
Geneva talks if the NATO deployment
proceeds and say they will install more
missiles in response. NATO has said that
arrival of the U.S. missiles in Europe does
not constitute deployment.
"The NATO deployment is planned to
be completed over a 5-year period. It can
be halted, modified or reversed at any
time," Heseltine said.
Anti-missile protesters, camped outside
Greenham Common's gates for the past 26
months, were caught napping by the
missiles' early morning arrival.
"Many of us probably feel like weeping,
but we won't give way," protester
Elizabeth Beech told reporters.
Monsignor Bruce Kent, general
secretary of Britain's Campaign for
Nuclear Disarmament, called the landing
of the missiles "a major tragedy, not just

the ground, will give NATO the ability to
strike a target hundreds of miles inside the
Heseltine said, "the delivery of these
missiles is wholly consistent with the allies'
decision to achieve an initial operational
capability by the end of 1983 in the
absence of agreement" at Geneva.
He said it was Britain's "foremost
i-hope" that the Soviets would keep talking
and that agreement could be reached on
cutting the arsenals of both sides.

commitment to take those steps which are
essential for the defense of this country
and our allies," he said.

Disappointment was the word of the
day Monday for members of the North
Carolina men's soccer team as it was
denied a bid for the NCAA postseason
N.C. State was selected over the Tar
Heels, despite the fact that North
Carolina had a better record and played a
tougher schedule. State did defeat the Tar
Heels, 2-1 , in October on a goal with five
minutes left, but head-to-head competi
tion is supposedly not a criterion for
selecting teams to the tourney, according
to UNC coach Anson Dorrance.
'We think they (the selection commit
tee, made a mistake," Dorrance said
Monday evening. "Objective evidence in
dicates we should have been selected."
The NCAA tournament fields 24
teams: two each from the eight national
regions, and an additional eight at-large
teams to round out the field. A maximum
of two at-large bids can be extended to
any one region, and the . talented South
region will be sending Clemson and N.C.
State as its at-large representatives.
Florida A&M and Duke won automatic
bids by virtue of their 1-2 ranking in the
How the Wolfpack, ranked fifth in the
region, was selected ahead of the Tar
Heels, ranked fourth, was a puzzling
dilemma to Dorrance.
In the National Collegiate Champion
ship Handbook, page 12, selection criteria
are listed as "won-lost record, strength of
schedule and eligibility of student-athletes
for NCAA postseason play."
"We had a better record than State did
(16-3-2 to 13-5-1), and we had a stronger
schedule," Dorrance said. "I can't. un
North Carolina also had big wins over
Duke, ranked No. 1 in the country, over
UNC-Greensboro, the Division III na
tional champions, and over Connecticut,
ranked No. 4 at the time.
Dorrance felt his team should have
been selected'over N.C. State, but did not
want to take anything away from the
Wolfpack. "I wish them luck in the play-

Dorrance suggested either realigning
the regions so that the strength of the
South could be spread to other regions,
or simply selecting the 24 best teams, re
gardless of their regions, for the NCAA
' "We're not the only team in the South
(that wasn't selected) that deserves to be
in the tournament," Dorrance said.
"South Florida had a great year also."
Senior midfielder Mike Fiocco missed
his only chance to play in the NCAAs as a
result of the decision. "I'm disappointed,
amazed and shocked," he said.
Junior striker Billy Hartman was also
asked to comment on the decision. -"You
can't print most of it," he said.
Despite the disappointment, Dorrance
said that 1983 was the best season in
North Carolina's soccer history. "No one
was expecting much from us, and they
called it an average recruiting year," Dor
rance said. "We ended up with one of the
best freshman classes in the country and
beat some big teams."
Sophomore strikermidfielder Mark
Devey, who scored the winning goal in
the season finale Sunday against un
defeated and No. 1 -ranked Duke, agreed.
"We have to look at it positively," he
said. "To win over a team like Duke is as
good a finish as you could ask for."

Four UNC professors offered perspectives on U.S.
policy in Lebanon and Grenada at a teach-in Monday
The event, sponsored by the curriculum in peace,
war and defense, drew more than 200 students and
faculty members to 100 Hamilton Hall.
James Leutze, chairman of the curriculum, spoke
on the importance of Central America in the U.S.
global military position; Daniel Pollitt, Kenan pro
fessor at the UNC School of Law, addressed "Legal
Issues Surrounding the U.S. Invasion of Grenada;"
Enrique Baloyra, a political science professor, urged
greater American understanding of the Third World;
and Stephen Darwall, an associate professor of
philosophy, gave reasons for condemning the
American invasion of Grenada.
Moderator Gilbert Joseph, associate professor of
history, set the tone for the evening when, in his open
ing remarks, he urged participants to consider the
question of when intervention and war were justified.
"Should the United States. . .be saddled with respon
sibility as the world's policeman?" he asked.
Leutze warned that Americans should not take con
ventional wars in the Third World lightly. "People
should be much more concerned about a conventional
war. ..rather than a bolt from the blue from the
Soviet Union," he said, stressing the unlikelihood of
global thermonuclear war in the near future.
As the United States deploys troops to more trouble
spots and begins to run short on manpower, the
chance of a reinstitution of the draft increases, Leutze
said. "You ought to be concerned that it is definitely
within the realm of possibility that we will return to the
American foreign policy is losing finesse and
sophistication, Leutze said. "The impression one gets
is of an increasingly militaristic reaction to complex
events," he said. "I am appalled that the American
public is applauding."
U.S. allies in Europe are alarmed by Reagan's will
ingness to use military force as a first, rather than last,
resort, Leutze said. "They will find it difficult to
understand why the American public has responded so
Pollitt said President Reagan violated U.S. and in
ternational law in invading Grenada. "President
Reagan has struck out under the Constitution, under
the War Powers Act of 1973, and under the U.N.
Charter," he said. , . .
And Reagan struck out two more times on the
charters of the Organization of American States and
of the Organization of East Caribbean States, he add
ed. "He's a loser."
Baloyra was the least willing to condemn the U.S.
invasion of Grenada. "I do not see it as the worst
possible thing that could have happened," he said. "I
do not see it as another Vietnam."

Carrboro businessman to borrow most of development grant
By SARAH RAPER
The bulk of a recent state Community
Development Block Grant to Carrboro
will go to one place, but the rest of the
community should also benefit, according
to local entrepreneur Dr. Francis Chan.
Chan, recipient of a Ph.D. from UNC
and owner of the Jade Palace Restaurant
and Norma Instrument Company in Carr
boro, will borrow $75,000 of a $98,437
grant on Oct. 25.
The rest of the money will be used by
the town for local improvements, pending
state approval, and to finance the ad
ministration of the loan to Chan.
According to the grant application,
Chan will add $255,000 in private funds to
the money he borrows from the town to
expand his businesses' floor space and
In return, Chan said each business
would hire eight employees from low- to
moderate-income backgrounds and pro
vide some of them with on-the-job skills
and classroom training.
The restaurant will draw people to Carr
boro, while the medical equipment repair
company will provide a service needed by
the hospitals and medical facilities in the
area, Chan said.
"They (town officials) will help me, and
I'll help them," he said.
The benefit of a project for low- and
moderate-income citizens, people whose
income is less than $16,000 for a family of
four, is a major consideration of the N.C.
Department of Natural Resources and
Community Development in awarding the
grants, a representative of the department
The other four criteria are the design of
the project the most important factor,
the community need for the project, the
amount of other public or private funds
which a recipient can add to the grant and
the proposal's consistency with other state
policies and programs.
Applications are scored by a committee
of Natural Resources and Community
Development staff members, and then
ranked by computer, according to Penny
Craver, special assistant for Community
Relations, Division of Community
Assistance in the Department. Craver said '
some states distribute the funds evenly
across the state rather than letting cities
compete for the grants.
She said 202 applications for grants,
representing $132 million, were received
this year and 99 grants representing $51
million, the full amount available, were
Three other grants totaling $210,000
also have been awarded to Carrboro
businesses in the last year, including
$10,000 to Balloons & Tunes, which Chan
said gave him the idea to apply for his
Without the grant, Chan said he would
not have been able to expand either of his
businesses. He said that his restaurant
would probably have survived without the
expansion but that the instrument com
pany might have closed.
With more space for inventory and
equipment, Chan will be able to manufac
ture as well as repair equipment at Norina.
Chan said he hopes to produce a color
display instrument which will depict the
findings of medical scanning systems such
as ultrasonograms" and X-rays.
Each incorporated, municipality and
county, excluding 15 large cities in the
state, is eligible for up to $750,000 in
grants each year, Craver said.
The Norina-Jade Palace application is
an example of an economic development
grant which is intended to create jobs for
lower-income citizens or to make im
provements to attract industry.
Craver said 15 large cities in the state,
including Chapel Hill, were eligible for an
Entitlement program similar to the small
cities program. The Entitlement program
is administered directly by the Department
of Housing and Urban Development, the
federal agency which provides the funds
for both grant programs.
l-rom 1975, when the block grant pro
gram was set up, until 1982, HUD also ad
ministered the small cities grant program.
Craver attributed the change from federal
to state administration last year to Presi
dent Reagan's New Federalism policy
which gives states more responsibility for
distributing public funds.
