Grove given 45 years for murder
Robert H. Grove Jr. of Roxboro was sentenced to 45 years in prison by a
N.C. superior court judge Thursday in connection with the Feb. 3 shooting
death of University student Jerry Keith Hodge.
Orange County District Attorney Wade Barber accepted a second-degree
murder charge, which could have carried a maximum sentence of life
imprisonment. Last month an Orange County grand jury indicted Grove on a
first-degree murder charge.
Judge Coy Brewer, in handing down the decision, recommended that Grove
not be considered for parole for at least 15 years. His sentence begins
Hodge, a 22-year-old senior from Waynesville, was shot in front of the post
office on Franklin Street.
Fbrdham rejects court appeal
Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III has rejected a recommendation
from the Undergraduate Court to expel a student, according to a newly released
summary of March cases heard in the student courts. Fordham chose to give
the student an indefinite suspension.
The recommendation came after an undergraduate was charged in February
with physically abusing, hazing and placing another person in fear of imminent
physical injury or danger. The student had appealed to the University Hearings
Board on the grounds of severity of sanction, but his appeal was denied.
According to the Instrument of Student Judicial Governance, only the
chancellor can impose a sanction of expulsion. Expulsion has' not been
recommended by a student court since 1976.
Anderson considers independent bid
WASHINGTON (AP) Rep. John Anderson said Thursday he is "strongly
leaning" toward running for president as an independent.
But the Illinois Republican insisted that he has not yet made a final decision
to drop his challenge to frontrunner Ronald Reagan for the Republican
Anderson dropped off the presidential campaign trail earlier this week to
assess the chances of running without the backing of a major political party.
In a telephone interview, Keke Anderson, the congressman's wife, said an
announcement would be made in Washington sometime next week after
Tuesday's presidential primary election in Pennsylvania.
Begin opposes Arab autonomy
WASHINGTON (AP) Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin Thursday
rejected all proposals for Arab autonomy in East Jerusalem, saying the city will
remain under Jewish sovereignty "for all generations."-
And he said autonomy for the Arabs living on the West Bank of the Jordan
River and in Gaza can never mean "a Palestinian state in everything but name."
Begin told U.S. Jewish leaders he refused to heed suggestions that he
postpone his response to suggestions by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and
others that the Arabs of East Jerusalem be given a degree of local autonomy.
"May 1 now respond to all of those proposals: East, West, North, South all
of it is under one sovereignty, that of Israel."

The federal government's food stamp program is
running out of money, and if Congress doesn't provide
additional funding by May 15, nearly 600,000 North
Carolinians, including 3,700 Orange County residents,
could lose their benefits, beginning in June.
County agencies have been advised to begin cutbacks
if needed by reducing the number of food stamps
authorized for participating families.
Inflation, soaring food costs, rising unemployment
and increased participation in the food stamp program
all have added to its growth. But some government
officials have said the program's main problem has been
Last week, 9th District Representative Jim Martin
said the food stamp program was in jeopardy because it
was too easy for those who do not need food stamps to
qualify, and because Congress in 1977 eliminated a
purchase requirement which called for food stamp
recipients to pay a portion of their income for food
stamps. Therefore, it became possible for recipients to
receive free food stamps, he said.
" There is a lot of fraud in this program," said Paul
Jones, an aide to Martin. "Sn.-ni; nu .imhcs need to be
taken to prosecute those w ho are violating the program.
"Also, by stopping the 1977 purchase requirement, all
incentive for personal responsibility was dropped.
People don't have to pay one red cent.
Jones said the reasons for eliminating purchase
requirements were inadequate. "Congress claimed that
the people didn't have the money to pay for the food
stamps," Jone said. "But if they didn't have the money
there were aid programs available."
1 don't think (fraud) is that much of a problem," said
Charles Menches. head of food assistance for the N.C.
Department of Social Services.
"I'm sure there are some people that can come in here
and lie through their teeth, but our verification
procedures are thorough and 1 don't think, it happens
"One reason for the increase that (Martin) isfailingto
take into consideration is the phasing out of the
commodities program in 1974. This program entailed
giving such goods as canned meats, dry milk and eggs to
the poor, and was phased out in favor of the food stamp
program. All the people that were receiving
commodities switched over to food stamps."
Although there is a bill pending in Congress to
increase the allotment of funds for the food stamp
program, many state officials sav the bill may be too late
to have any effect on the June allotment. Martin Whitt,
income maintenance supervisor for the Orange County
Department of Social Services, said there will not be
enough time to receive June allotments ii Congress waits
until mid-May to allocate funds.
"If Congress doesn't approve the funds soon, it will be
really bad for some people in this area." Whitt said.
"Some people absolutely depend on food stamps."
A bill to extend the food stamp program has been
delayed because neither the House nor the Senate has
passed a budget resolution to permit additional
, spending in the current fiscal year. The resolution is
expected to reach the Senate floor this week, and there is
a possibility the House will act this week or early next
State and local officials said if Congress does not pass
the bill granting more money for the program, there will
be limited compensation for those families affected.
"As far as I know, there are no alternatives," Whitt
said. "There is no general fund that is capable of
covering the losses. There is a small emergency "fund but
nowhere near enough to cover the expense."
"What it will mean is that people will have to fall back
on community resources," Menches said.
"Organizations such as the Red Cross and the Salvation
Army will be called on to help as much as possible."
Garter's draft plan revived, marj(et

WASHINGTON (AP)-ln an
important victory for President Jimmy
Carter, the House Appropriations
Committee on Thursday resurrected his
embattled plan for peacetime draft
registration of young men.
By a three-vote margin, 26-23, the
committee approved spending $13.3
million to start registering an estimated 4
million men, aged 19 and 20, at post
offices throughout the country,
beginning this summer.
Proposals to register women along
with men, as Carter proposed, were
shouted down twice without a recorded
Carter's plan has been stalled in
Congress since Feb. 27 when an
appropriations subcommittee approved
only enough money for a standby
registration program that would not start
until the president ordered mobilization
in an emergency.
The subcommittee vote had been a
sharp setback for the administration, and
resulted in an intense lobbying effort by
the White House and Pentagon to reverse

WASHINGTON (AP) The Agriculture Department has told Congress it

extra cash could either operate directly

An anonymous source who is a student at
the University told the DTH Wednesday that
Quaaludes with the inscription T.emmon 714"
were producing severe drowsiness,
disorientation, vomiting and in some cases
unconsciousness in area users.
Although those effects are common ones of
methaqualone, the severity and length of the
effects reported are abnormal.
Che. k said the counterfeit Quaaludes that
had been analyzed were w hite pills that looked
like those manufactured by Lemmon
Pharmaceutical Co., but they were marked
with the word "Lemon." not "l emmon."
Counterfeit "black beauties" also have been
analyzed by Wake County drug action
officials. "Black beauty" is another name for
"speed," which is a biamphelamine, or
stimulant. Cheek said the drugs frequently are
used by students to stay awake at night while
The drugs are black or black and white
Cheek said that he did not know where the
impure drugs came from, but that a trend to
produce bootleg Quaaludes made from a
number of different substances has developed
in the country. Bootleggers often manufacture
the drugs as exact 'replicas of actual brand

Quaaludes in Chapel Hill came from
Charlotte. Ken Caskey. a Charlotte Police
Department narcotics officer, said that was
very possible. In Charlotte last week bootleg
pills being sold as Quaaludes were found to
contain large amounts of Valium.
"It is likely that the counterfeit drugs will
surface at the Chapel Thrill concerts this
weekend." he said. "They have a tendency to
show up at large concerts." he said.
Cheek recommended that if a person insists
on taking a drug, he be extremely cautious.
Anyone who would like information about the
kind of pill he has could contact ACCT.SS in

Due to a typesetting error, 77k Daily
Tar Heel incorrectly reported Thursday
that English Professor Weldon E.
Thornton, a member of the Dean's
Coordinating Committee to review the
undergraduate curriculum, said that the
job of the coordinating committee was
not to merge and pull together the reports
of nine subcommittees into one revised
version of the report. Thornton actually
said it was now the job of the committee
to merge and pull the reports together.
