"own Council agrees
By WILL LINGO
The Chapel Hill Town Council
took some major steps Thursday
night in its continuing efforts to
establish a cooperative planning
relationship with Chatham County.
The council voted 6-3 to endorse
an agreement which would allow the
Orange Water and Sewer Authority
(OWAS A) to sell supplemental water
to Chatham County.
The council also voted 7-2 for an
annexation agreement in which
Chapel Hill agrees not to annex land
in Chatham County before Dec. 1,
1989, in return for courtesy review
Entwistle said the protesters would
appeal the verdict.
"I have no intention of letting it
lie at a guilty verdict," he said.
The defendants have 96 hours to
file a written appeal.
The five student justices who
presided over the trial returned the
verdict and determined the sanction
early Friday morning after several
hours of deliberation.
"The thought that what we did on
April 15 was willfully obstructive,
after the careful plans we made that
it not be so, does not sit well with
me," Entwistle said.
About 150 people came to Man

Honor Court trial in two years.
The charges stemmed from an
incident at Hanes Hall in April, when
members of the CIA Action Com

are bought in foreign markets, the
prices of such materials have
increased sharply, he said.

"Materials we've tried to acquire

acquire," he said, because many
materials will go out of print or
become too expensive before the
library receives the funding.
All requested materials are labeled
with a priority number, but only
"priority one" materials are sent to
the acquisitions department for

Students offered varied opin
ions on the verdict and the trial
of five UNC students Thursday,
" The five CIA Action Committee
(CIAAC) members were found
guilty on charges of obstructing
University activities and innocent
of trespassing charges stemming
from an April 15 incident at the
University Career Planning and
Placement Services (UCPPS)
office in Hanes Hall.
Junior Fabiana Politi said she
hoped for a verdict of not guilty
in the trial, but the evidence in the
trial was even.
"The defense cleared a lot of
issues in the trial, especially the
issue of time," Politi said. The
protesters would not be on trial

shuttle and to record data from other
satellites, Amatore said.

State funding designated for mate-;

million during the 1987-88 fiscal year. .
All 1988-89 funding, including that
provided by the University, is
$3,276,254. But library officials say
the 2. 1 percent increase is not enough.
"We did not get the increase from
the state legislature, and $68,000 is
not much compared to a $3 million
budget," Flowers said.
But without funding from the
University, this year's 12 percent
reduction in book acquisition would
have been greater, she said.
The Law Library's budget for the
1987-88 fiscal year was $457,000, a
figure smaller than the amount
requested. This year the library
received $1,000 less than last year's
figure and received no special funds
from the University, said Laura
Gasaway of the Law Library.
As a result, the library has cut back
on the subscriptions of serials, denied
faculty requests for books, and
reduced the number of bound mate
rials, she said.
Faculty and students who are
deprived of needed materials could
start feeling some effects of the
finance problems as soon as 1989,

Council members generally agreed
that the sale of water to Chatham
County was the key to growth and
development in the county, and this
growth could eventually lead to the
possibility of annexation in the
county by Chapel Hill.
Thus, these issues and the discus
