Campos activist Dale McECioIey
faces charges from Honor Court
By SHARON KEBSCHULL
In addition to Orange County
District Court charges of trespassing,
protester Dale McKinley will be tried
by the graduate student Honor Court
in connection with his protests
against a CIA recruiter last spring,
according to a letter he received from
the graduate student attorney
McKinley is charged with two
counts of obstructing and interfering
with a guest of the University for
incidents at the University Motor Inn
and Hanes Hall on campus and one
count each of disorderly conduct and
trespassing at Hanes Hall.
If he is found guilty, the maximum
penalty is suspension or expulsion for
the first two counts and probation
for the latter two.
"My approach to this whole matter
is that the charges are totally mis
placed,'' said McKinley, a doctoral
student in political science, in an
On Feb. 24, members of the CIA
Action Committee (CIAAC) went to
the room at the University Inn where
a CIA recruiter was to hold interviews
and protested outside his door. The
recruiter left Chapel Hill without
conducting the interviews after
members of the CIAAC followed him
down Interstate 40 to be sure he did
not go to campus.
Students had earlier protested
recruitment at Hanes Hall, where
career placement offices are, by
chaining themselves to desks outside
a room where interviews were to be
held, and the charges are in response
to the incidents there. The students
were arrested at Hanes Hall, and
McKinley faces trespassing charges
on Aug. 25 in district court.
The Honor Court hearing proba
bly will be held in the first few weeks
of the fall semester, McKinley said.
He and Graduate Student Attorney
General Stephen O'Brien discussed
the hearing and decided it should be
held after the district court
"I'm not putting up a defense. I
don't think there's anything to defend
... If the Honor Code is to uphold
no cheating or lying, then (the
University's) allowing the CIA to
come on campus is a violation of its
own code," McKinley said.
McKinley said he was not surprised
at the charges because he was told
of the investigation in spring. If he
is found guilty, he will appeal, he said.
To his knowledge no other protes
ters have been charged, he said.

comment on whether charges are

Emergency meeting of senior class to decide on gift
By SHARON KEBSCHULL
Because time is too short to wait
until fall, there will be an open
emergency meeting Tuesday for
senior class members to discuss ideas
for the class gift, said Senior Class
President Steve Tepper.
The senior class has set a fund
raising goal of $580,000, but that can
only be met through matching funds
from donors other than students,
Tepper said. The meeting will discuss
what can be done with a large part
of the gift that will be "intangible"
a gift that will not be a physical
reminder on campus for returning
alumni to see, he said.
If students can reach a consensus
on the gift, the class can begin this
summer to write proposals for match
ing funds, Tepper said. A use for the
remaining $80,000 can be decided in
the fall, because that will go to a
The Class of 1988 set a fund-raising'
record of $262,000, with 42 percent
of the class pledging the $188
requested and about 33 percent
pledging at least some portion of that,
to be paid over five years.
That was a record that probably
can't be topped significantly because
it drew only from students, although
the Class of 9 is slightly larger than
that of 1988, Tepper said.
"Our idea to try to break the record
was to expand the foundation of who
gives beyond students," he said. By
going outside the senior class for the
first time to matching donors, the
class could raise the half-million
dollars, he said, with $300,000 of that
coming from students.
The goal will be $200 per student,
which is $1 per year for each year
of the University, he said, payable
over five years.
This year is especially important
because 1989 kicks off the celebration
of the bicentennial of the University,
The meeting will be held in room
208 of the Student Union.
