The five students were taken into custody by University Police Commander of Police Operations Major Charles Mauer after they refused his request to leave the shanty. The five members were taken to the Chapel Hill Police Station on Airport Road, where they were released about an hour later by the town magistrate without being charged. The members arrested were Marguer ite Arnold, Herman Bennett, Graham Entwistle, Helen Moore and Robert Reid-Pharr. "The magistrate released them with some stipulations put on them . . . that they not build any more shanties and go on back to class and act like students are supposed to," Mauer told the Associated Press. Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III said he did not press charges against the students because they were "good students" and there was no need to be punitive.

Leslie Boney Jr. of Boney Architects, Inc. in Wilmington, said the "earth fill," an area where dirt has been removed, replaced and then compacted, under the main floor toilets had settled, but no one would know why until enough of the floor was removed. After the cause of the settling is found, Boney said, the problem could be corrected and the floor replaced. After a structural engineer hired by the UNC Engineering Department reported to Bryant last week, the matter was referred to Boney because it would be easier for the designers to work with the contractors, Bryant said. UNC's Engineering Department had been in charge of investigating the settling, but Selwyn Bryant, the depart ment's director, said it would be better if the designers looked into the problem. "Until . . . (the architects) get down in there," Bryant said, "they won't be able to tell what's wrong." He said representatives of Boney Architects Inc. probably would examine the library during the summer. Library employees first noticed Tallin' it in Scott Boyles, a junior English and takes in rays and some tunes as dramatic point," Fordham said. Workers moved into the shantytown just before 7 a.m., the deadline set by Fordham last week for the removal of both the shanties and the mock Berlin Wall that had been erected by the UNC College Republicans and Students for America. The wall was removed Sunday afternoon by the College Republicans. The support group formed a circle around the shanties early Monday morning, linking arms, but did not attempt to prevent campus workers from entering the shanty area. Over 300 supporters chanted "The whole world's watching" as the workers tore down the outside shanties. Group members wearing red tags supervised the demonstration, at one point pre venting an unidentified man from obstructing the workers. "Our complaint is not with the University adminstration but with the endowment board," Bennett said before his arrest. He cited pressure from state legislators and the UniversityBoard of Trustee members as the cause for Fordham's removal of the shanties, and thanked Fordham for his support. After the surrounding shanties had been taken down, Mauer entered the shanty where the five group members were sitting and asked them to leave. Bennett refused, saying, "We don't want cracks in the tile walls and marble stalls of the first floor women's bathroom last summer, and the settling has been getting worse since then. The e"ast'sl6ef:theTull3ing'wKicn is settling, has no basement, and is constructed on a concrete slab above an earth fill. "The floor slab has settled and caused cracks in the finished floor and some of the water closets," Boney said. Earth had also settled beneath a large heating duct in that area, he said. "It's an interesting problem, to find out what the cause is," Boney said, although he said he was proud of the library and didn't like having any type of problem with it. "There must be a million reasons that cause problems like settling in a building," he said, "but IVe never come across anything like this." Boney said when the earth fill was installed during construction of the library, "A considerable amount of rock was removed, and much of the: earth was taken out and then replaced." Several small holes had already been drilled in the concrete slab, Boney said, but more extensive work needed to be done to to find the cause of the settling. Boney said work to correct the settling would be done at "a time most convenient for the University," since the east portion of the library's floor would have to be torn up. psychology major from Rockingham, he props up on his chair-pillow in the Your boys are not going . . but we feel that allowed to stay Mauer then arrested the members and led them out of the shanty to the police station in the basement of the Campus Y Building. In a press ' statement immediately following the1 arrests, group member Kelvin Nivens promised that the group would continue its efforts to bring about divestment. "Our actions will not end with the fall of the shanties," he said. "It is time we made a strong stand." Group member Dale McKinley then led crowd members to the steps of the South Building, where they chanted "Let our people go" and "Divest now." "I'm very proud of everyone who showed up and kept it peaceful," Arnold said later. She also praised Fordham for his role in keeping the students from having arrest records, calling the process of being arrested "a very painful thing." Some group members cried as the shanties were torn down. The group had occupied the buildings for almost three weeks.

The report, authored by members of the executive and legislative branches of Student Government, the Black Student Movement, the Labor Support Group and the Residence Hall Association, made the proposals to "prevent the new food service from repeating ARA's mistakes" after requesting the discontinuation of ARA's food service contract. Chancellor Christopher C. Ford ham, III, Vice Chancellor of Business and Finance Farris W. Womack and Food Service Director Connie Branch also received copies of the report.

The report calls for an official University student food service grie vance board made up of students appointed by the student body pres ident, Student Congress, the RH A president and the BSM president. The board would make statistically valid opinion polls of the food service, regular assessments of the food service "areas, and would '"work" ""with"; 'the grievance task force to solve students' problems with the food service. The report also asks for the inclu sion in the food service contract of a grievance procedure for food service employees comparable to the one University employees have. Student Body President Bryan Hassel said that even if the FSAC ignored the rest of the report, the authors would still push for the enactment of the proposals. The report bases student opposition to the renewal of ARA's contract on the Feb. 4 referendum, where students voted 3,211-479 against ARA's con tract renewal.

"The movement is still here and it is going to continue," McKinley said. "People are caring.. . . we're moving passed by the Student Congress demanding the non-renewal of ARA's contract. Also, both a poll conducted by a sociology class last fall and the actual amount of money students voluntarily spend on ARA's food indicate student dissatisfaction with ARA, the report said. Hassel said the choice of a campus food service was an issue in which students - were directly ' affected and they should therefore have a voice in the decision. "(Student opinion) is as valid as the bids themselves," he said. Also according to the report, ARA has violated several of its contract obligations with the University and has not provided adequate grievance channels to its employees. Antle said Monday he had not reviewed the report and was therefore not prepared to comment on the information. Branch said in his time at UNC since January the allegations in the report had no validity, but he said he could not be certain of the situation before speaker of the "Last Lecture" series sponsored by the Carolina Union Activities Board's Special Projects Committee. Cameron and the three professors before him spoke as if they were giving their last lecture. ". . .two weeks aside, this may well be one of the last lectures IH ever give," said Cameron, who had not yet found a permanent teaching job. "I'm really not sure what I'm going to say," Cameron said.

Ambassador Richard Burt, the U.S. envoy to West Germany, said there were "very clear indications that there was Libyan involvement" in the nightclub bombing that killed an American Army sergeant and a Turkish woman. When asked whether he favored a military move against Khadafy, Burt said that Reagan was "studying this issue right now." One U.S. diplomat in the divided city, speaking on condition that he not be identified, said: "The Libyan angle is being explored very vigorously. Khad afy is an active suspect." On his return from a California vacation Sunday, Reagan refused comment when reporters asked him Franklin D. Roosevelt 7Huan Charlson look on early Monday morning forward." Bennett compared his arrest to what he called the daily persecution of South African blacks. Other group members vowed to continue their protests for the rest of the semester and into next year. They also promised to escalate their actions. "The key is no longer education . . . but action," Eric Walker said. then. He said employees did have ade quate grievance channels as written in ARA's employee handbook, and that all workers had to sign a statement saying they had read and understood the provisions in the handbook when hired. Branch said he would be making further comments on the allegations after he had time to read the report. ' BS M President Sibby Anderson, however, said the report's authors had worked to make sure information could be substantiated before it was included in the report. Anderson said, "We were very cautious of the statements we included in the proposal." Hassel said members of the com mittee that issued the report would continue to lobby FSAC members and would answer any questions concern ing the report in these conversations. At the FSAC's next meeting, to be held today, the bids will be reviewed. The meeting is closed to the public. Antle said the food service contract would be awarded by April 18. said. "(But) for me, that's a short-lived tragedy." Cameron said he wouldn't confront the audience with a sea of his wisdom either, because he wasn't sure what his wisdom was. Instead, he read from Philip Roth's "A Professor of Desire." "A passage seemed to leap at me," he said. "I love teaching literature," he quoted. "There is nothing quite like the classroom in all of life." "This is what makes the three hours a week I spend with you all such a privilege and such a joy," Cameron said. Cameron told of his "brilliant" acting debut in "The Little Engine That Could." He wore red, he said, but See CAMERON page 4 whether he planned to strike at the Libyan leader. He ignored questions Monday as he left the White House to watch the start of the Baltimore Orioles' season-opening baseball game against the Cleveland Indians. At the White House, spokesman Edward Djerejian said the administra tion would "have to reserve final judgment on exactly who was respon sible until we make further progress on the investigations." But he said the weekend explosion in West Berlin and the bombing last week of a TWA jetliner over Greece followed the "pattern of indiscriminate violence which we have traced to the types of terrorist activities that Col. (Moammar) Khadafy has sponsored in the past." Burt, however, indicated the United States had intelligence information before the Berlin bombing that the Libyan embassy in East Berlin was planning a terrorist attack.
