haps the following guide will help interested but
undecided voters make a choice.
One of the strengths of Jesse Helms is his
ability to run a successful campaign. He has
already raised over eight million dollars in dona
tions through his congressional clubs . He also
has well-known values, that is “down-home”
N.C. values, which makes him appeal to die
eastern half of the state. Helms is also known as
an honest man who stays calm in tough situ
ations. Because of his 18 years in the Senate, he

Today's the Day!
By Mesheka Davis
Today’s the day! Report cards will be deb
uted today at 2:55 PM. Studaits the time is here
for you to accept those remarks and grades that
you have so earnestly achieved for the past nine
Although most people only look at the gra^,
the report card has other helpful infom^on
Your report card gives your G.P.A. based on a
4.0 scale as well as comments about your prog
ress in your classes.
Something different will be displayed on your
report card this year if you are a student
coursepass/fail. Youwillsee anumencal^ade
instead of P or F, but it will not be calculawd mto
yourG.P.A. However, if you do poorly in your
pass/fail course you will not be able to hide yow
grade behind a "P"; parents and colleges alike
will be able to see your actual grade.
After report cards go out today, many o
may breath a sigh of relief, while
beam with pride, and most will probably be «-
tremely motivated tomorrow morning
tening to numerous lectures toraght. ^
There’s one good thing about report cards,
though. We only have to get them three more

sponded: “It’s a toss-up; it’s basically whether
you want to have an experienced conservative in
Ae Senate or a“freshman” liberal in there.”
The exciting side of this Senate race seems to
be the commercials and advertisements Jesse
Helms likes to use labels, such as pointy-headed
intellectuals, taxes, liberal, and pro-life. On the
other hand, Gantt likes to talk in terms of hazard
ous waste, pro-choice, education, and a**people'8
person.” Always in their commercials they try
desperately to convince you that their opponent
will not be sufficient for North Carolina’s needs.
But hopefully you will examine the statistics of
both candidates and not base your deciskm by
what the commercials and advertisements tell
you because they often can stretch the truth.'
Bodi are very qualified men for the job and
will do well in the Senate. But it’s your choice as
a citizen of Nordi Carolina to make a good
judgment through the known facts and vote for
thebetterofthetwocandidates. So who will it be,
Jesse Helms or Harvey Gantt? Tune in on No
vember 6 for die final verdict!
