WASHINGTON (AP) President Carter welcomed members of the U.S.
Winter Olympics team to the White House Monday, calling them "modern-day
With the Marine Band playing the Olympic theme, the athletes climbed the
steps to the south balcony of the White House where they were greeted by the
president and Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Walter Mondale.
Carter shook hands with all the athletes but also gave a big hug to Eric
Heiden, the speed skater who won five gold medals during the just-completed
After receiving the athletes, Carter told a group of spectators on the South
Lawn, "For me as president of the United States, this is one of the proudest
moments I have ever experienced."
Tobacco deal made with China
WINSTON-SALEM (AP) R.J. Reynolds Tobacco International Inc. and
the People's Republic of China have signed an agreement calling for the
manufacture and sale of Camel filter cigarettes in China. .
The agreement, the first such venture between an international tobacco
company and China, also provides for the development of a new, jointly owned
brand to be sold in the Far East.
Under the contract, Camel filters will be produced in China with equipment
supplied by Reynolds Tobacco International. Initially, the brand will be
manufactured with tobacco supplied by the United States and will use the same
blend as Camel filter in America.
In gram criticizes former aides
WINSTON-SALEM (AP) State Insurance Commissioner John Ingram
said Monday that personnel problems plaguing his department were caused by
aides who were ambitious to take over his job.
W. Kenneth Brown, Roy Rabon and James Long are three former deputies
who are running against Ingram in the primary election. They are among seven
deputies who have either quit or been fired by the insurance commissioner since
he took office in 1973.
N.C. seeks to offset rationing
RALEIGH (AP) North Carolina transportation and tourism officials are
looking for ways to offset possible gasoline rationing that could affect tourist
travel in the state.
Dan Roth, new state director of travel and tourism, said one of the ideas
being discussed to fight: President Carter's rationing plan is a statewide gasoline
advisory phone line.
He said the transportation department is preparing for the possibility of
rationing this summer.

who did get back in, few were happy
because they had friends who were closed
"Personally, I think it's absurd that
they're spending more money and
building a library and adding onto the
Union when there aren't enough places to
live,' said Alexandra McMillan, a
freshman Alexander resident.
"I don't even know if we'll be able to
find an apartment now. 1 just don't know
what I'm going to do.
"It really does burn me up that there's
no guaranteed housing, and I think that's
unfair," she said.
Vicki Boyette, a freshman Alexander
resident, said, "1 don't have any idea
about what I'm going to do. I cannot
afford an apartment."
Students who do plan- to look for an
apartment can get help by attending
seminars on finding alternative housing.

Skepticism concerning the existence of
the past is one of several unique topics
that UNC philosophy Professor George
Schlesinger discusses in his recently
published book, Aspects of Time.
"How do we know the world is not just
five minutes old?" he asks in his book.
"Let's say we sprang into being five
minutes ago with all sorts of memories of
the past that aren't real."
Most of his students just laugh the first
time they hear the hypothesis. But the
more they think about it, the more they
realize they cannot argue against it,
Another chapter in Aspects of Time
deals with backward causation, a term he
defines as "doing something today that
would cause something to happen
Schlesinger said he believes these are
problems worth pondering and everyone
should take an interest in them because
they deal with the most fundamental
questions about the nature of reality.
Schlesinger, a 1975 recipient of the
Tanner Award for "excellence in
inspirational teaching," has worked on
the book for many years to correspond
with Philosophy 121, a course he teaches
on the philosophy of time.
The book, which is available at the
aar ai& iiFain
to iiMiiy m resistance
UNC Student Store, is divided into three
parts: the text, a section of questions and
objections and finally, the answers,
"This device is unique," he said. "In
philosophy, one puts forward an
argument, then an objection, then
counter-arguments and counter
objections. This could go on forever and
only confuse the argument."
Breaking the text into sections is a
considerable help to students,
Schlesinger said. "1 do care about
students, in fact I make frantic efforts to
help students to understand."
"It's uphill work to make students
interested in something that is purely
intellectual and absolutely impractical,"
Schlesinger, a native of Hungary, did
his undergraduate work at London
University and his doctoral work at the
University of Melbourne in Australia.

The U.S. government said it had
understood, that the U.N. fact-finding
mission would lead to the release of the
hostages, but the Iranians insist there is
no such connection. Revolutionary
leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
said during the weekend that any decision
on the hostages must await the election
and convening of a new Parliament, not
expected until April at the earliest.

referring to the Soviet military
intervention in neighboring Afghanistan.
After the president's brief speech,
spokesmen for the militants addressed
the crowd and accused the United States
of trying to destroy the Islamic
revolution. They said the United States
will eventually be obliged to return the
deposed shah to Iran.

entrance, laughter both cynical and light
hearted rippled through the UNC crowd.
Holbrook shuffled out onstage, in his three
piece khaki suit, smiled and began to speak in a
high-pitched graveley voice. "I'm always very
sad to see myself advertised as a great writer. (
They always have the habit of dying off..." he
reflected a moment and said, "Chaucer is dead.
Milton is dead. So is Shakespeare. ..and I
haven't been feeling too good myself lately."
Having a repertoire of 57 monologues,
taken from various written material and
speeches of Twain, Holbrook proceeded to
pick and choose among them, following his
He said afterward, "1 don't plan my
movements. I don't plan to pick up something
at a certain time purposely. To me the thing
you try to achieve in acting is spontaneity the
feeling that you're just making it up. Within a
framework you can allow anything to
In his Sunday night performance, Holbrook
chose about 20 monologues which ranged in
origin from Huckleberry Finn to Twain's own
"Do you mind if I smoke?" he asked in his
folksy manner. Holbrook has perfected the
mannerisms of the 70-year-old author. For the
next 20 minutes. Holbrook pressed home his
points with the smoldering match used to light
the cigar. , The pungent aroma of the cigar
beautifully matched the pungency of Twain's
Holbrook basked in the vitality of each
anecdote, relishing its humor and carefully
timing his speech so the audience would enjoy
it as much as he.
He began with relating some of Twain's jobs
as he had described them in Roughing It.
While shoveling sand. Twain would often stop
to reflect upon how to proceed and fall asleep
"as happy as a martyr when the fire won't
burn." His boss rebuked him. "I've seen
quieter and lazier people in my life but
Twain asked him for a raise. "I knew that
money was the root of all evil and I wanted
every bit I could get." Twain soon was fired.
After that, "a pawnbroker took care of all the
property I had."
Twain's social commentary still retains its
universal appeal. In his performance,
Holbrook told a story of an anarchist who
tried to commit suicide. With a pistol, "he shot
a tunnel right through his brain.. .it changed his
life. ..cleared all that gray matter out... and he
was sent to Congress...yeah...he' served two
terms in Congress and one in the
penitentiary.. .now that man is a respectable
member of society again."
Holbrook was especially spellbinding in his
dramatic presentation of a selection from
Huckleberry Finn. In "Shooting of Boggs" a
man commits murder then shames the crowd
into not lynching him. It is a subtly explosive
expose on the sadism and cowardice of small
Southern communities of the time. They can
only lynch people in the dark, wearing masks
and amuse themselves by pouring turpentine
on a stray dog and setting him on fire.
Holbrook creates a dense characterization
here. He tells the story in a child's voice,
tainted with the tenor of the elderly Twain's
natural raspiness. The innocence of the naive
Huck is laced with the ironies of the author.
No one, during Twain's day or nw. is safe
from the satire of the famous author.
"That's the fun of it," Holbrook said "to see
if people can laugh at themselves." And the
UNC audience certainly did.
"He (Saunders) was notified that a position
was vacant," Collier said. !It was Bob's belief
we should have a student on the boardWe felt
student input was vital."
But Cohen said two more seats will open up
on the Transportation Board in June when two
current members terms expire. Cohen said if
he gets the existing vacant seat he will push for
a student appointment to one of the seats that
will be open in June.
Collier again stressed the need for a student
member on the board.
"Input is needed on issues like the proposed
increase in bus pass prices," he said. "It's really
the only official way the University and the
students can have input."

WILMINGTON (AP) North
Carolina has become one of the the most
popular points of entry for marijuana
channelled to the rest of the country,
largely because the state's smuggling laws
are not tough enough.
"Whenever dope comes in here, it's
already destined for somewhere else,"
said Detective Joel S. Smith of the
Wilmington-New Hanover vice unit.
State Attorney General Rufus L.
Edmisten said jail sentences for
marijuana smuggling are much lower in
North Carolina than for smuggling
cocaine or other narcotics.
Edmisten said his office is preparing
legislation for the 1981 session of the
General Assembly that will toughen
"I want the word to go out that if you
deal drugs in North Carolina and you're
caught and convicted, you're going to
burn," he said.
Last year, nearly 3 million pounds 6f
marijuana were seized along the North
Carolina coast by the U.S. Coast Guard,
State Bureau of Investigation, U.S.
Customs Service and the Drug
In 1978, 3.5 million pounds were
seized, but even that figure is estimated by
customs officials to be one-tenth of the
amount that finds its way into the state
Edmisten said the federal estimate is
too high. He said less than I percent of the
marijuana is seized.
Smugglers discovered the North
Carolina coast four years ago, according
to Gilbert A. Payette, Wilmington
district patrol director for the Customs
Service. He said the state's meandering
coastline provides 3,375 miles of
opportunity for boats to make entry.
Payette said a sparse population along
the coast and relatively small local law
enforcement resources lower the chances
that a smuggling optration will be
One of the most successful drug
smuggling operations, know as the Black
Tuna Gang, was stopped in May 1979.
According to federal authorities, the gang
did more than $300 million in business
and supplied about one million pounds of
marijuana during one 16-month period.
However, law officers say the end of
the Black Tuna Gang hasn't meant the
end of drug smuggling in North Carolina.
"That was one Black Tuna but we have
scores and scores of other similar
organizations," said Edmisten. There
are so many of them we don't need to say
they are connected to Black Tuna."
