UNC students protest invasion
By AMY STYERS
The one-year anniversary of the
U.S. invasion of Grenada prompted
more criticism of President Reagan's
foreign policy than praise.
Protesters of the invasion drew a
crowd of about 200 students in the
Pit, while less than 30 Reagan foreign
policy supporters gathered to hear a
former Grenada medical student
speak in Great Hall.
"The invasion was a complete and
utter violation of international law,
said Dale McKinley, a speaker for
National Student Peace Day which
was organized by Students Taking"
Action for Nuclear Disarmament,
Carolina Committee on Central Amer
ica, Democratic Socialists of America
and Internationalist Books.
"Ronald Reagan has not given any
indication whatsoever that he stands
up for human rights anywhere in the
world," said McKinley, a graduate
student in international relations.
"Evidently, people enjoy listening to
lies," said Mike Barnhill, vice chair
man of UNC College Republicans.
The College Republicans, along with
the USA Foundation, a national
conservative student group, sponsored
Student Liberation Day in celebration
of the year-old invasion.

Student Government endorsed the
proposed Franklin Street extension
yesterday in a letter to Carrboro Mayor
Paul Parker, student body president,
said the Campus Governing Council
decided to endorse the extension for
reasons of traffic and taxes.
The Franklin Street extension is a
proposed bond issue which will be voted
on Nov. 6. If approved, the plan would
continue Franklin Street at its west end,
so that the street would run parallel to
Main Street in Carrboro. The plan has
fallen under controversy recently
because the extension would have to run
through an existing neighborhood,
displacing people and houses.
Supporters of the plan say that the
extension would alleviate many Car

Director John Swofford said
"In the next five or six years, we won't

we complete the three projects we're
working on now," Swofford said in
reference to the SAC, tennis complex
and athletic center.
The SAC, now scheduled for com

had tried to reserve the Pit but
National Student Peace Day already
had it, he said.
The two groups presented their
opposing views together in a less
hostile atmosphere when Rosemary
"Classi, the Grenada medical student,
was invited to speak along with Lars
Schoultz, associate chairman of the
political science department and a
guest speaker for National Student
Peace Day .
The United States interpreted
Grenada's steps toward independence
as communist aggression, Schoultz
told a group of about 40 people in
the Union following the main National
Student Peace Day and Student
Liberation Day activities. The moti
vation of the invasion was not to save
the students, he said, but what the
administration saw as communist
"If we were there only to save the
students, we would have left when they
left," Schoultz said. "But we're still in
businesses. Businesses are now building
out of the main section of Carrboro
because of lack of space.
Parker said the decision was made
with the students best interests in mind.
"We first looked at it in a selfish light
as far as students are concerned," he
said. "Traffic is the main reason (for
the decision). It does seem the extension
is the best alternative route for Car
rboro," he said.
Parker added that the extension
would help reduce taxes for students
"It (the extension) really does help
students. Currently, 89 percent of
Carrboro taxes come from home or
property taxes, which are paid in part
by students, (who) make up a large part
of the population of Carrboro. Because
of commercial interest (in the exten
sion), it would eventually shift the tax
base from 89 percent to 75 percent,"

said. "But some of its advantages aren't
"The SAC will cause a positive chain
reaction for the department by opening
offices for the non-revenue coaches in

department has been generous to share
some of their room with us, and some
of the non-revenue coaches' offices were
literally built for closets."
From a fan's perspective, those
benefits include the 22,000 seats in the
main arena and the 1,200 seats around
the Olympic-sized, 10-lane swimming
pool. The SAC will contain offices for
the basketball coaches, the Sports
Information Department, ticket sales
and the Educational Foundation.

Classi said the Marines deserved all
the respect our country could give
them. "I don't know a lot about,
politics ... I know I was an American
in a foreign country, away from my
family and friends, and the American
government came and took care of
us," she said.
Activities in the Pit focused on
criticism of Reagan. Ashley Osment,
co-chairman of the STAND, asked the
crowd what it thought of polls indi
cating college students strong support
for Reagan. Students responded with
boos and hisses. "Ronald Reagan's

with the endorsement.
"I applaud the student body president
and the Student Government for taking
the long range view in support of the
extension. I think it's one of those
decisions that need to be made to
preserve the quality of life in Carrboro,"
Residents of Carrboro who are
opposed to the extension said they

Neal Harrell, the Rams Club's vice
president of administration, said the
SAC will be "one of the finest multiple
purpose complexes in the country." The
arena will be a welcome addition, since

Grenada future unclear

One year ago yesterday, still recoil

American forces since Vietnam, and
the move received overwhelming
popular support. Victory in Grenada

Allen Morris hopes the complex will
be finished in time for UNC's season

The center is comprised of 16 courts,

as far as completion goes," Morris said.
"They can't pour the concrete for the

But where is Grenada really headed?
Lars Schoultz, who traveled to Gren
ada this summer to study the impact
of the American invasion on education
and freedom of expression, asserts
that many of the positive reforms of
the Bishop regime have been dis
mantled. "We have destroyed the
Grenadian education system,"
Schoultz said. The Bishop government
had built schools, trained teachers,
and brought in educators from aborad
(mostly from Cuba). Bishop had
increased the number of Grenadians
studying abroad from three to 209. All
that has ended now, and it has not
been replaced by a major American
effort in the area of education.
Only a few weeks ago, Congress
allocated the money to rebuild 17 of
the 35 schools that have been in
disrepair since the invasion. A first
grade textbook that was free under
Bishop's education program now costs
$8. The per capita income in Grenada

"It turns out that in the first year
(after the extension), residents would
pay $1.50 more a month in taxes. After
that, taxes will go down, and go down,
so that by the fifth year, the town of
Carrboro will be making money which
will shift the burden (of taxes) from the
taxpayer to businesses," Porto said.
Porto said all citizens should be
aware of the issue and vote Nov. 6. He
said the city published a pamphlet about
the extension which was distributed to
all residents. Any resident who did not
get a pamphlet, or anyone who wants
more information, should call the

The development center, like the
tennis center, receives sponsorship from
the Carolina Athletic Association and
is scheduled for 1986 completion. The
athletic department generates 85 per

the development center, Swofford
estimated a completion date of spring

University Housing Director Wayne
Kuncl yesterday approved an increase
in housing fees of 75 cents per semester
to go to the Residence Hall Association.
The increase, which will go into effect
in fall 1985, was supported by voters
Tuesday in an RHA referendum and
by the RHA Board of Governors
Wednesday. The board, by a 16-4
margin, voted to recommend that Kuncl
accept the vote. Slightly more than 10
percent of on-campus residents partic
ipated in Tuesday's election. RHA
President Mark Stafford had said he
would not send the election results to
Kuncl if less than 10 percent voted.
Kuncl said he wished more students
had voted Tuesday, but he made his
decision based on those students who
"I'd certainly like to have seen a larger
voter turnout, but under these circum
stances, since we have 10 percent of the
students (in residence halls) voting, it
leads me to believe that there is a base
of support for this on campus," Kuncl
Kuncl added that the rent increase
would allow Student Government to
give the $4,000 it usually gives to RHA
to other organizations.
The measure has been added to the
housing department's budget, which is
scheduled for final approval next week.
According to RHA Treasurer
Richard DeBusk, the increase will
almost double the amount of revenue
next year that RHA generated this year.
This year's RHA budget, said Stu
dent Body Treasurer Allen Robertson,
showed RHA's expected revenues to be
$1 1,635 from three sources: $6,800 from
a fund for on-campus residents; $4,085
from the Campus Governing Council;
and $750 from fund-raising efforts. The
residents' fund collects 50 cents per
semester from each resident. Next year,
it- will receive $1.25 per semester per
If that were the case this year, the
8,171 on-campus residents would be
giving nearly $20,500 to the fund.
" ' Stafford was unavailable for com
ment yesterday. Shannon Friend, an
RHA executive assistant, explained the
reasoning behind the board's approval
of the measure.
"Considering the 2-1 margin (of the
election results), we don't know if any
more people would have made a
difference," she said. "The big issue was
the low voter turnout, whether it was
an accurate representation (of resi
dents). (The board) felt it was."
The feeling of supporters of the
recommendation was that there would
have been few additional voters if the
publicity had been greater. Margaret
Stewart, STOW residence college
governor, said she went on her college
council's recommendation, which was
to support the voters.
"I said 'If we vote tomorrow, and it
passes and the vote is sent to Dr. Kuncl,
how would you feel about that?' " she
said. "They all said that granted, the
publicity was late, but that those who
wanted to vote got out and voted."
However, Phil Bridges, Ehringhaus
governor, said he had always disagreed
with the idea of the referendum and that
perhaps the lack of publicity was
"RHA didn't want to publicize it, 1
don't think, because they felt like it
would be easier to get it approved,"
Bridges also said he was against the
measure because he thought the organ
ization did not need $20,000 in income
"I don't think RHA needs $20,000"
to play around with, because I don't
think they're responsible enough with
the money they have," he said. "And
when I say they, I'm including myself."
Bridges voted to send the measure
on to Kuncl, though, because he said
the voice of the students could not be

and nautilus systems. "The weight room
