Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk
urged that the youth of the present college
generation rise to the challenges thatwill
exist in 'the future decades in a speech
Monday before an audience of Kenan
"I happen to believe," Rusk said, "that
these young people coming into our classes
and our seminars and into our offices and
our homes are a very special generation,
because the entire human race this family
of man is now faced with a series of
problems which are different in scale and
in kind than anything the human race has
Rusk said it was up to the present
generation to organize a durable peace,
because by that time nuclear weapons will
have proliferated to many nations of the
"Thousands of megatons are lying
around in the hands of frail human beings,
no demigods, no supermena world in
which the idea of collective security is
withering, and we are not even discussing
the question of what we shall put in its
place to curb the obscenity of war."
Much of Rusk's speech centered on the
possibility of war. "I am one of the few
people who has been required to take the
time to study, in great detail, the full effects
of full nuclear war.
"Throughout human history it has been
possible for us to pick ourselves up out of
the death and destruction of war and start
over again. We may not have that chance
after World War III."
He advised the professors to "encourage
young people to reach out and grasp the
essence of the major fields of learning and
to lock up nom motion

become whole human beings."
These basic needs were cited by Rusk
because of his own experience during the
Cuban missile crisis. "During that,
dreadful week ... I could not help but
realize that the most fundamental
questions about life - had 'become
operational questions before the
governments of the world."
For him the- future world needs
multitalented men and women, "like
Thomas Jefferson, like Benjamin
Franklin," because such leaders will
always be able to "act upon the whole', to
think of the whole."
The question for Rusk was "are we
doing all we could or should on our
campuses to assist young people in putting
Rusk also said today's college students
have a limited perspective of this country's
potential. "These young people for the
most part find that the death of John F.
Kennedy is the first event in the public life
of their country that they can remember.
"Their entire conscious lives have been

President Carter emerged Tuesday from
the long presidential primary campaign
with the Democratic delegate majority he
needed for his renomination. but his
moment of triumph was clouded by Sen.
Edward M. Kennedy's refusal to abandon
Carter claimed a "wondrous victory" as
the last eight Democratic primaries
boosted him over the top in delegate
commitments. He offered "the hand of
friendship" to Kennedy in an effort to unite
Democrats for the campaign against
Republican Ronald Reagan.
- But while Carter claimed victory in the
overall race for delegates, Kennedy had his
biggest night of the primaries.
The senator won five of the final eight
Democratic primaries, including the
largest state, California.
Kennedy also carried New Jersey, Rhode
Island, New Mexico and South Dakota.
Carter won Ohio, Montana and West
Virginia. , ,
Making clear his determination to carry
his campaign to the Democratic
convention, Kennedy told supporters
Tuesday night that "today. Democrats
from coast to coast were unwilling to
concede the nomination to Jimmy Carter
and neither am I."
Kennedy's longshot strategy for
overcoming Carter's delegate lead called
for a strong showing in the final primaries
that might convince Democrats that Carter
was a likely loser to Reagan in the Nov. 4
The nation's troubled economy proved a
volatile issue, with New Jersey voters
opting for Kennedy, who emphasized the
problem, over Carter, whom the voters held
responsible, an AP-NBC News poll said.

Rustyt In the Fayetteville Street Mall
. . . caters to the lunchtime crowd
By Elliott Warnock
It is a journalist's dream. Close to 175 state politicians and
bureaucrats are jammed into a tiny restaurant. Most are drunk;
those who aren't are headed that way.
All of them are downing vast quantities of beer and food, and all
are talking to anyone who'll listen.
The decor of the restaurant is simple. Wooden tables are
surrounded by warm-beige walls and some wood paneling, devoid
of any decorations but a few, well-executed photographs. Rusty's is
a fairly simple quiche-and-sandwich shop, the kind that dots the
less bustling streets of New York City, the kind of shop that
television sportscaster Al McGuire would call "an eight-seater with
gay waiters and hot bread."
Rusty's is not in New York; it doesn't have gay waiters. (It doesn't
have any real waiters; you serve yourself.) But it does have hot
bread, baked each morning by the Rusty's staff.
It also has people inside, lots of people, most in bureaucratic
clothes. The clothes are the I'm-upwardly-mobile-and-working-for-the-state-government
sort worn by people well on their way to
financial security, but who still want to look as if they were fresh
from four years at Carolina or Wake Forest.
The clothes speak for themselves.
