WASHINGTON (AP) President
Carter will call for the registration of
women for the military draft, White
House officials said Thursday.
The president probably will limit
registration to persons 19 and 20, though
full details were not made available.
The White House scheduled an
announcement for Friday detailing the
president's plans for the entire draft
The president's proposal, disclosed by
officials who asked not to be identified, is
a sharD break with historical precedent. It
will be the first time that a president has
suggested registering women for the
Carter decided to include women in the
program despite a warning from House
Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill that it would
not pass the Congress.
In a related development, the
Canadian government does not want to
harbor U.S. draft dodgers in the event of
a renewed draft, and would put them at
the bottom of the immigration priority
list, Foreign Minister Flora MacDonald
MacDonald said Wednesday the
Progressive Conservative government is
not considering any legal changes to bar
United States citizens from Canada in the
event they do not want to join the U.S.
However, bureaucratic methods in
place now would be used to discourage
draft dodgers from coming to Canada,
she said, as thousands did in the 1960s
and early 1970s to avoid fighting in the

The Selective Service has said it needs a
pool of about 4 million or 5 million
persons for registration purposes. There
are approximately 8 million men and
women between the ages of 18 and 20.
However, there have been indications
that a proposal to register women would
be controversial on Capitol Hill. Most
members of the House and Senate Armed
Services Committees, which would
consider the proposal initially, have said
they favor registration of men only. They
contend that since the military needs
persons to fill combat positions,
registration of women is unnecessary.
Women's groups have split on the
issue. Many oppose registration of either
sex, but say women must be included if
such a program is undertaken. Other
women's leaders have flatly opposed
registration in any form.

meeting that "he will have a rocky road

With three seconds left on the clock,
the Tar Heels forced a Maryland
turnover at the UNC end of the court.

coach ducked into the lockerroom.
It typified the 1 1 years of frustration
for Driesell, who had seldom defeated
Carolina in his tenure at Maryland
and had never beaten the Tar Heels
twice during a regular season. It also

UNC was able to cut the Maryland

Fordham over the other two candidates
for the position Joel Fleishman, vice
chancellor of Duke University, and
Edward T. Foote II, dean of the

if I told the name before I presented it (to
the Board of Governors)," Friday said.
"The law says I have to make a single
recommendation to the Board' of
Governors. I will be making my
recommendation (today), and I hope the
board will confirm it."
Friday said earlier this week he had
denied a report by WCHL Radio that
Fleishman was his choice for the
chancellorship, but he would not deny
reports concerning Fordham.

The complaints, filed Wednesday by graduate student
Brad Lamb, charged defacement of campaign materials
inRosenau Hall, misrepresentation of election issues by
supporters of the referendum and political solicitation
near ballot boxes. Lamb charged that a poster was
within 50 feet of the medical school ballot box, a
violation of the Student Government Code.
However, because complaints have been submitted, a
public hearing must be held to determine whether a
violation of the election bylaws has occurred, according
to student elections law.
Lamb will present his charges to the Elections Board

After certifying Tuesday's election, the board also
received complaints from several Campus Governing
Council members. The complaints charge:
The Elections Board did not publicize the location
and hours of all polling places three days prior to the
election as required by elections law.
The Elections Board did not allow off-campus,
undergraduate students to vote at three new polling
sites Roseneau Hall, Kenan Laboratories and
Hamilton Hall. Only graduate students were allowed to
vote at these polls.
The Flections Board failed to correct the voting
discrimination at the new polling sites the day of the
election, even though it was notified of the violation
during the election.
These complaints also will be heard at the public
hearing Friday night.
The board will hear the charges from complaintants

After hearing from both parties, the board must

The recruitment of more blacks to work in Student
Government was the main issue at a student body candidates
forum held Thursday in Great Hall of the Carolina Union.
Approximately 100 persons attended the forum, during which
candidates for student body president, The Daily Tar eeeditor
and Carolina Athletic Association president spoke and answered
Questioning of student body presidential candidates centered
on the controversial Long Report, which calls for a UNC office
of minority and disadvantaged affairs and a black assistant to the
chancellor. The report was released by a committee investigating
charges made last year by Hayden B. Renwick, an associate dean
in the College of Arts and Sciences, who said that the University
discriminates in its recruitment of black students.
"More than an office of minority affairs, the students need to
do something," said Clive Stafford Smith, student body
president candidate. "We can do anything we like without having
our tenure revoked."
Smith said he would like to see white students made more
aware of blacks on campus. This could be accomplished through
efforts such as wider campus distribution of The Black Ink, the
Black Student Movement newspaper, he said.
"We have to have more black people involved in Student
Government," Smith said. "Not just the BSM, but all blacks on
campus. I am committed to that."
Presidential candidate Kevin Garrity said he would improve
upon policy set by current Student Body President J. B. Kelly. He
said he would try to improve the channels of communication
between the BSM and the student body president.

A change of heart
Former Kit Klux Klan member discusses
decision to ivork with black organization
By DAVID TEACUE
C. P Ellis rose to the podium at last
week's civil rights teach-in with a serious,
disturbed look on his face, and said,
"Before you stands a very confused man."
"I'm confused," he continued, "because
I'm Baptist, yet I still curse. I'm confused
because I used to be with the Klan, but
now I work for a predominantly black
union. I still have a soft spot in my heart
for many Klan members, though. If
anyone can tell me what's wrong with me
after this talk, I'd appreciate it."
Ellis tfien began to recount the story of
his entrance into the Klan and the events
that led to his departure and his work
with the International Union of
Operating Engineers, which is about 70
His story not only attracted the
audience, but has also attracted the
attention of Studs Turkel, a well-known
historical author and book critic. Turkel
recently completed a book dealing with
Ellis and his leaving the Klan, entitled An
American Dream: Lost and Found. The
book will be published soon, and plans
already are underway to turn the book
into a movie.
Ellis learned of the Klan from his
father, who was a Klan member. "I
remember him saying to me early that
blacks, Jews and Catholics were to be
hated." Ellis said.
"My family life had a lot to do with my
involvement with the Klan. My dad was a
textile worker and we were very poor. 1
remember going to school and being
laughed at because of my dress. Through
the years I began to feel inferior, that
there was something wrong with me."
These feelings of inferiority, Ellis said,
caused him to develop deep feelings of
hate, which he directed toward the most
visible targets blacks and many radical
and religious groups.
In the early 1960s, Ellis joined the Klan
in Durham. One and a half years later,
Ellis became president of the group.
"At that time, I really didn't know what
I wanted," he said. "The Klan gave me
some sense of standing in the community.
1 was being recognized as a human; 1 felt
like I was contributing."
Under Ellis's leadership, the Klan
became much more visible in Durham.
They became stronger and began going
public on more issues. "When I first went
in I didn't like all the secrecy." Ellis said.
"I told the Klan that if we wanted to get
things done, we had to go out and do it."
Not only did public support for the
Klan grow but many Durham public
officials were also in support of Klan
operations. This, however, was kept
"I remember many times before a city
council meeting, the chairman would call
me and ask me and some of my men to
come down with our guns when blacks
were demanding their rights." Ellis said.
"He wanted us to sort of -balance things
out. If he saw me on the street, though,
he'd cross over and act like he didn't
This event was one of the first that led
Ellis to have second thoughts about his
position with the Klan. The final decision
came when he was asked by the Durham
city council to come listen to an AFL
ClO sponsored program dealing with
community participation and
I'm confused because I
used to be with the Klan,
but now I work for a
union. ..I began to see
that (blacks') feelings
were the same as mine.'
