QA protest eodls do student arrests The Daily Tar HeelMonday, April 18, 19883 If By BRIAN McCOLLUM Staff Writer Eight UNC students were carried out of Hanes Hall and arrested for trespassing Friday after a protest against CIA employment recruiting. The students lay on the floor of Career Planning and Placement Services' working area while holding hands and singing protest hymns. They were arrested after refusing office officials' orders to leave the area. The protesters had marched to the office on the second floor a half-hour earlier, and spent most of the time reading and answering questions about the CIA. University police carried the stu dents out of the building when they refused to walk on their own. The protesters were released on a $200 unsecured bond Friday afternoon. The students arrested were senior Graham Entwistle, junior Lisa House, junior Jerry Jones, junior Kasey Jones, graduate student Dale McKinley, evening college student Steve Sullivan, sophomore Joey Templeton and senior Amy Thompson. Entwistle, McKinley and Tem pleton were also arrested last October for blocking the entrances to rooms where CIA recruiters were holding interviews. Sharon Wiatt, the office's associate director, said she received a tip about the protest twenty minutes before the students marched to the office. The demonstration did not anger her, she said. "There's a certain freedom of speech this University upholds and we're complying," she said. "It went smoothly, all things considered." During the demonstration, the protesters condemned the career planning office for permitting the CIA to recruit students. Students read reports listing various alleged crimes of the CIA, including geno cide, minings and worldwide covert operations. The protesters occasionally pulled CIA-related files and videotapes from cabinets in the office. At one point, office officials locked several file drawers. Protester Jerry Jones said lodging a protest against the CIA outweighed any disruptions caused by the demonstrators. "It's a question of proportions," he said. "I'm sure we're not pleasing those who work in this office, but sitting here is the least we can do." Friday's events marked the end of the "Harvest of Sorrow" week, sponsored by the CIA Action Com mittee (CIAAC). On Tuesday, police forcefully removed CIAAC members from Lenoir Dining Hall after workers complained about a "theat rical protest" there. Junior and bystander Charles Balan, who directed several questions to the protesters during the demon stration, said he disapproved of the manner of the CIAAC protest. "I don't agree with them occupying the workplace of the secretaries," he said. "It's kind of selfish of them. They've got the right to protest, but not when they impede the rights of others." Many UNC students and admin istrators have expressed increasingly negative feelings toward the CIAAC and its actions, saying the protesters are offending many at the University. "It's getting old, and there are a lot of people sick and tired of it," said freshman Brian Adair. "The CIA has a right to come here like any other group. The protesters are infringing on a lot of people's rights." Student Congress completes budget process By JENNY CLONINGER and JUSTIN McGUIRE Assistant University Editors The Student Congress allocated more than $183,000 to 29 campus organizations during final budget hearings Sunday, leaving surplus funds of $673. Several groups' budgets generated debate and or special amendments before they were approved by the congress. The Yackety Yack's photography supply category was raised to $12,200 from the finance committee's final recommendation of $10,000, but a hike in the subscription price com pensated for the raise. Curtis Small (Dist. 5), who pro posed the changes, suggested that the price of the yearbook increase from $22 to $24.50. "We would have liked to have kept the cost at $22," said Kelley King, Yackety Yack editor. "We're afraid this might hurt sales." Congress voted to allocate $800 to the Black Student Movement (BSM) for Pro ject Uplift, a minority recruitment program. The money was cut from the budget of the Executive Branch of Student Government in an emer gency meeting of the Finance Com mittee Wednesday. Congress members said then that they cut the money because the BSM and the Carolina Indian Circle provide sim iliar recruitment programs. The BSM and the Executive Branch will work together on the project. Congress also voted to decrease the BSM's donation category from $1,000 to $500. The group will receive $17,161 in Student Government funds, $1,300 more than the finance committee recommended. The Carolina Indian Circle's print ing and publicity category was returned to the Finance Committee's original recommendation of $765 from the $665 allocated during the committee's emergency meeting. "There are few groups at this point that need funding more than the Carolina Indian Circle," Brock Dick inson (Dist. 13) said. "The recent happenings in Robeson County are part of one of the most pressing issues North Carolina will have to face this year." Some questions surrounded the Student Part-Time Employment Services' (SPTES) lack of fund raising income. Members of the organization disagreed with represen tatives' suggestions that the group plan fund-raising programs or charge for their job placement services. "Our job is to help students find jobs and we can't do that if we're out trying to raise a lot of money," said Lori Smith, one of SPTES's repre sentatives. "Some students look for jobs to pay for beer, but more students look for jobs to pay for rent, food and tuition. We can't charge students to use our services."

"The standards were set up to protect air quality," said Ogden Gerald, chief of the N.C. Division of Environmental Management's air quality section. "As far as the federal government is concerned, we are not doing that." The Mecklenburg and Wake Durham metropolitan areas exceeded acceptable levels for carbon monox ides and ozone in 1987, Gerald said. The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) standard for carbon monoxide is nine parts per million (ppm) over an eight-hour average, and the ozone standard is 0.12 ppm, said EPA statistician Warren Freas. If an area exceeds the carbon monoxide limit more than once a year or the ozone limit more than once a year over a three-year average, it violates the EPA standards, Freas said. The problem areas in North Caro lina were just over these levels in 1987, Gerald said. The highest carbon monoxide concentration measured in the Raleigh-Durham area was 10.6 ppm, and ozone was measured to be 0.129 ppm, he said. North Carolina's carbon monoxide problem is quite serious, but the "ozone violation problem is not yet as traumatic," said John Bachmann, an environmental engineer with the EPA's office of air quality standards. Bachmann said while ozone is needed in the stratosphere to protect from the sun, "down here it is harmful." Ozone affects buildings, health and vegetation, Gerald said. Carbon monoxide can also cause health Apple Chill from page 1 had to collect 50 letters signed by fairgoers in support of prisoners all over the world. "It's for a very good cause," Howes said. "We just need everyone to sign a letter to help these people." Lisy Brown, a senior from Phila delphia, said her only complaint about Apple Chill was the crowd. dangers, because it enters the blood and reduces the ability of the red blood cells to carry oxygen, he said. The Clean Air Act requires the EPA to declare as "non-attainment" areas those that do not meet the standards for emission of air pollut ants, Gerald said. The Wake-Durham metropolitan area, which includes Durham, Frank lin, Orange and Wake counties, is expected to get on the "non attainment" lists for carbon monox ide and ozone this year, Gerald said. The Mecklenburg metropolitan area, . comprising six counties,, will also be on both lists, Gerald said. Mecklenburg County is already on the carbon monoxide list, he said. When an area gets on a "non attainment" list, the state involved must develop a plan for improving its air quality to meet the EPA standards, said Bachmann. "(North Carolina) will have about nine months to come up with (Clean Air Act) implementation plan revi sions," Bachmann said. The plan should detail what emis sion reductions are necessary and outline regulations to produce these reductions, said Tom Lyttle of EPA's Southeastern office in Atlanta, Ga. Lyttle said expansion of car inspec tion and maintenance programs and controls on industrial sources can be implemented by local governments to improve air quality. Motor vehicles are responsible for 90 percent of carbon monoxide emissions, he said. Half of the ozone emissions in metropolitan areas come from motor vehicles and the other half from stationary sources, including industry and consumption of personal pro ducts such as spray paint and de odorants, he said. "Each individual does not add that much," Lyttle said. "But it does add up to a significant amount." Bachmann said it will be hard to maintain air quality as growth con tinues in the metropolitan areas. "(With continued) explosive growth, people have to think about what we are going to do to meet attainment," he said. no WDOimeir irevealec From staff and wire reports A nude basketball game at Gran ville Towers ended without a victor Thursday night when Chapel Hill police arrived and broke up the game. According to police reports, a group of about 10 nude men were playing basketball on the Granville courts and had attracted the attention of about 100 female witnesses. , The, participants fled on foot when officers arrived, and the crowd booed.
