The drug policy being drafted for
the 16-campus UNC system will
emphasize education and rehabilita
tion, according to members of the
Board of Governors (BOG) commit
tee charged with forming the policy.
Committee member Phillip Haire
said the drug policy draft, which will
probably be presented to the BOG
by January 1988, will set penalties for
University faculty, students and
employees who are indicted for
possession or distribution of drugs.
The policy will not address alcohol
control, Haire said.
Some UNC faculty have criticized
the BOG project, saying individual
institutions should be able to create
the drug policies that will be enforced
on their campuses.
George Kennedy, chairman of the
faculty at UNC, said he would oppose
a system-wide drug policy imposed
by the BOG. He said he favors a

The peace accord signed by five
Central American presidents
incorporates amnesty, dialogue,
democratization and noninterven
tion, a top Costa Rican official
told more than 200 people in
Hamilton Hall Wednesday night.
"There's still war in Central
America," said Dr. Luis Guillermo
Solis, chief of staff of the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs of Costa Rica,
in a speech sponsored by the
Carolina Union Human Relations
Committee and the Institute for
Latin American Studies. "But
what's important is that we're
talking again," he said.
On August 7, Costa Rican
President Oscar Arias Sanchez,
along with the presidents of
Guatemala, El Salvador, Hondu
ras and Nicaragua, signed an
agreement to resolve their differ
ences. The treaty, called the
Guatemala Plan, was proposed by
Arias earlier in the year.
A major goal of the accord is
"a plurality of democracies,
responding to specific conditions,
but all solidly entrenched in
pluralism," Solis said.

The intellectual quality of the
faculty is judged by the quality of the
graduate students it produces, he
said. "Without a fine graduate pop
ulation, you do not have a superb
research-oriented faculty," O'Connor
said. "It is very important to attract
and retain the very best (students)."
To attract and retain graduate
students, funding for their research
must be available, he said.
Most research done by graduate
students is funded by federal govern
ment agencies such as the National
Institute of Health. State and private
funds in the form of fellowships also
pay for student research, O'Connor

concerns about the site during Tues

A Student Congress resolution
requesting student review of admin

week, but student leaders agree that
implementing the specific terms of the
resolution is not essential.
Both students and administrators
said they are more interested in
drawing attention to the lack of
communication between students and
The resolution was passed in
response to concern about the lack
of student involvement in the Uni

Many students expressed fear that
removing the parking area could set
a bad example for future University

taking away student parking, which
is already a problem," said freshman
Carol Huffman of Monroe.
Dibbert said he has no control over
the parking lot's fate. Also, the

Disguised as doctors, Goodson and
a Boston University student sneaked
into Afghanistan in the back of an
Afghan resistance ambulance, Good
son said. Their ambulance was halted
at the border because a man had been
shot during tribal fighting, and the
aid of the "doctors" was needed.
"Luckily, the guy was dead, so we
cruised on through into Afghani
stan," he said.
Three days after Goodson returned
to Pakistan, the villages he had
traveled through were wiped out due
to an outbreak of tribal violence. The

The support given to the Mujahi

istan," he said.
The early findings of his research
indicate that the proximity of border
refugee camps to military training
camps causes conflict to spill over
into other countries, Goodson said.
