"We have pressed no charges
and at present we do not wish
to testify," stated cheerleaders
Al Roper and Tim McCoy in a
letter to the DTH Thursday.
Discussing their position in
the Art Heyman trial which is
scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday
in Durham Recorder's Court,
the pair wanted it understood
that they apologized for any
strained relations which they
might have caused between
Carolina and Duke.
The trial grew out of a war
rant listing both as prosecut
ing witnesses, which was served
on Heyman Wednesday in the
Durham Police Department.
The warrant charged the
Duke basketball player with
"assault and battery with hands
and fists" on a Carolina student

arrest was signed by former

was just one of two incidents
involving Heyman during the
game. The second occurred when
a fracas broke out between the
two teams during the last nine
seconds of the game.)
Neither Heyman nor Duke

Play makers 9 6 Vis it 9 Feb. 15
BY GORDON CLARK
William Trotman has a problem, but it's the kind of problem he likes, as an actor.
The 29-year-old Winston-Salem native is playing the male lead in the Carolina
Playmakers' production of "The Visit" in Chapel Hill February 15-19, and he says the
second act of the award-winning play presents him with "the most difficult emotional
quality" he's ever tried to sustain on a stage.
For Trotman this is no small statement. The young actor-designer has appeared in
scores of productions throughout the country, including leading roles opposite Boris

Bernard Kilgore, president and publisher of The Wall

"wrong ideas" that the public and some newspapermen
have about American newspapers.

role of Anton Schill in "The
Visit" one of the best he's ever
"The play is a masterpiece in
a clever, terrifying sort of
irony," Trotman says.
The play, written by Fried
rich Duerrenmatt, is the story
of a fabulously wealthy old lady
who returns to the poverty
stricken town of her youth for
a frightening purpose to take
the life of her girlhood lover,
played by Trotman.
But her revenge goes deeper
than this, for she wants this
man, now a respectable citizen
whom she still strangely loves,
to be killed by his fellow towns
men and friends, who had ridi
culed her as a girl.
"Each scene bulids terrifically
to what is really a horrifying
climax, and a disturbing real
ization," Trotman says.

man returned to the University
this year to complete work on
his master's degree.
But during his time away
from the University, Trotman
was busy in theatre work all
over the country. He studied
acting with Stella Adler, in
structor of such well-known
personalities as Marlon Brando,
and at the American Theatre
Wing in New York.
Trotman has already ap
peared in one show this season,
the Playmakers' production of
Dylan Thomas' "Under Milk
Wood." In previous seasons, he
acted with the Playmakers in
such shows as "Death of a Sales
man," "The Crucible," and "Ar
senic and Old Lace."
"The University teaches good,

Trotman contends after working
in theatres all over the United
"The Playmakers also teach
another good lesson that one
should learn early if he is going
into the theatre, and that is hu
mility for the work you're doing.
This is extremely important."
Trotman is using these les

role in "The Visit." A local

newspapers in America because
they are big city newspapers.
Size is not the important factor.
"This emphasis on .size does
harm to the growth of smaller
newspapers and discourages
talented young people from
joining them. Noboay is in a
position to judge the greatness
of a newspaper because no one
can be familiar with all the
newspapers in the different sec
tions of the country."
Kilgore, wearing a c onserva-
tive dark suit, but speaking in
an "off the cuff" home-spun
manner, said that contrary to
the trend in most other indus
tries, newspapers in future dec
ades would not be looking for
people with specialized train
ing, such as science writers,
medical writers or business
writers, who take graduate work
in these fields. .
Need For Journalists
"The need," he said, "will be
for talented journalists. A re
porter is specialized enough as
it is. Specialized training can be
acquired on the job.
"We have the biggest market
for business writers, but we
are not in the market for busi
What do newspapers really
"There is a need for newsmen
who understand local govern
ment and community problems.
The local editors needs these
tough problems in public affairs
handled by talented men and
women who can cope with them.
"The primary need is for all
around administrators on the
editorial side. That is the area
they should aim for. There is
lots of room for talented people
at the top. Also there are many
opportunities ' for talented edi
torial writers who can write
and think in depth."
Attacking popular newspaper
stereotypes, Kilgore said week
ly newspapers are not humorous
miniature newspapers. Very
often they are the biggest
money-makers in a town and
put out a top quality paper that
meets vital need in the community.
"Another newspaper myth,"
Kilgore said, "was the talk
about big city papers becoming

"This is not true. In the past
decade, as cities have overflowed
their populations to the suburbs,
it is the suburban papers that
have grown at a much greater
rate than the larger dailies."

The bond issue would have to
