The faculty are planning their next
step in proposing alternatives to the

expressed concern Thursday about
the actions of several students who
confronted a CIA recruiter on Tues
day and caused the cancellation of
interviews of 12 UNC law students.
Many law students also voiced
objections to law school officials'
handling of the situation.
Dan Bishop, a first-year law stu

majority of law students were "infur

accepted the CIA's request for off
campus interviews.
"There's a very broad base of
opinion that these protesters
shouldn't have been allowed to
intimidate the law school administra

were obligated to provide a "con

UNC grouip discusses peace
proposals for Central America
Staff Writer
As part of the Association of
International Students' week-long
"Working for Peace" series, UNC
students from Central America
discussed possibilities for peace in
their troubled homelands Thurs
day afternoon in the Student
The concepts of self
determination, non-intervention
and democracy are some of the
most important principles of the
peace process in Central America,
the students agreed.
"These three issues are key to any
peace plans coming out of Central
America," said Carlos Cerezo, a
political science graduate student
who grew up in Panama.
In 1983, four Latin American
countries met in an area of Panama
called Contadora to work on a
peaceful solution in Central Amer
for their programs, Morrison said.
The faculty responded to the
report's recommendation to reduce
the number of degree programs with
proposals to rework the programs,
Morrison said. But the proposals
have been ignored, he said.
"The signals that are being given
to the faculty by the administration
are not clear-cut," Morrison said.
Brown was not available for com
ment Thursday.
Charles Bishop, special assistant to
the provost and liaison to help Brown
in the reorganization of the school,
said things were moving along
"The dean is consulting with
faculty concerning appropriate
to keep the protesters from interfering
as they did Tuesday.
"It's not a surprise to me the
protesters would do that," he said.
"What disappoints me is that the
administration caved in to the intim
idation by ceding to the CIA's request
to move off campus."
Bishop said that Ronald Link,
acting dean of the law school, made
a mistake by giving in to the
"He set a bad precedent by letting
it be known that protest groups could
disrupt the placement process in the
law school," Bishop said. "The main
thing is that they (the CIA) should
have been able to stay on campus."
The protesters, who included
members of the CIA Action Com
mittee (CIAAC), poured a red liquid
in front of the CIA recruiter's room
at the University Inn before following
him out of the hotel. Witnesses said
events, Powell said.
"We don't want businesses to take
these things for granted," she said.
"We want to make them aware that
if we lose these activities we could
lose quite a bit of revenue."
According to the resolution creat
ing the committee, visitors spent
nearly $59 million in Orange County
in 1985. Amateur athletic events
attract a large number of these
visitors, the resolution said.
This is especially true about the
high school events hosted by Chapel
ica, said Juan Valiente, a computer
science graduate student from El
The Contadora Support Group,
formed in 1985, saw four more
countries trying to achieve peace
and led to "one of the most
important parts of the peace pro
cess" in 1986, Valiente said.
Self-determination is the ability
of each country to choose its own
form of social and political organ
ization, he said, and non
intervention stipulates that the
countries will not try to influence
each other.
But the notion of democracy is
not defined in any of the peace
proposals, Cerezo said.
Where most Americans see
democracy as "the right to enjoy
the wealth of your nation," he said,
most Central Americans conceive
of democracy as the redistribution
of power and resources.
Everything has an end,
actions to review and update some
programs," Bishop said. "Requests
have gone out to revise the

quickly so the school could consol

"We need to make sure everybody
knows what the faculty has already
agreed upon and address the remain

some conclusions," Williamson said.
The anger expressed by faculty
members was a response to program

yet been discussed, Williamson said.

but was really just "a procedure,"
Valiente said.
It called for conciliation among

Representatives from 16 univer
sities in the UNC system will hold
a convention in early April to work
on increasing student involvement in
N.C. state government.
The MOVE 'SS convention, spon
sored by the UNC Association of
Student Governments (ASG), is
scheduled for April 8 in Research
Triangle Park, said Brian Bailey,
ASG president.
Student representatives will partic
ipate in seminars on how to tackle
student-oriented issues at the state
government level. ASG will also host
several speakers, possibly N.C. Lt.
Gov. Bob Jordan, Bailey said.
One of the main goals of MOVE
'88, which stands for "Motivate,
Organize, Visualize, Educate," is to
recruit students from outside the
campus student governments to
increase contact among the campuses
dations the report should have made.
"I was gone four months during
the time when the report was being
conducted," Williamson said.
However, Williamson did say he
had been skeptical of adult education
programs before the report was
conducted, and that he had made his
skepticism clear.
Jill Fitzgerald, School of Educa
tion associate professor and member
of the task force, wrote a minority
report disagreeing with some of the
recommendations in the report.
"I find myself bewildered about
how we arrived at some of those
conclusions (in the report)," Fitz
gerald said.

Olympic Festival," Carrow said.
And with some of the finest
facilities in the world, the chances for
future events being held here are good
if the business community lends its

support and interest in University
athletics, and the economic impact
from these events is obvious, said

Bailey said.
MOVE organizers also want to
build students' voice in decisions
made at the state level, Bailey said.
The ASG was first established
under William Friday to link the 16
campuses to the General Administra
tion and the state and federal govern
ments, Bailey said.
But campus student government
leaders are so hindered by dealing
with day-to-day campus issues that
they cannot attend to issues at the
state level effectively.
"It's too much to run an organ
ization at the state level when all the
organizers are busy as bees dealing
with campus issues," Bailey said.
"Right now, 16 student body pres
idents are running around on their
own campuses, which makes it hard
to get together and talk."
Bailey said he envisions a new state-

that the task force report was not
based on specific data, Williamson
said the task force believed it had
adequate information.
"Not everybody will be happy
regardless of how much data was
brought forth," he said.
Bishop said the report is generally
regarded as accurate.
"The report brings the school's
resources in line with its demands,"
he said. "We just need to clarify the
changes that need to be made."
The recommendations made in the
report will help the School of Edu
