Jenrette to otay in re-election race j
FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) Rep. John W. Jenrette Jr. . convicted last week
in the FBI's Abscam probe of official corruption, announced Monday hs
would stay in his campaign for re-election.
The 44-year-old Democrat said, however, he would resign from Congress
if he lost his appeal of the conviction.
"This office is too valuable to allow anyone to win by default," Jenrette
said, his voice breaking and his lips trembling. "Therefore I plan to remain
on the ballot."
A crowd of about 75 supporters from his northeastern South Carolina
congressional district loudly applauded the announcement.
Jenrette, who said he sought the advice and prayers of many people in
making his decision, said there was "no perfect or reasonable solution'
Cuba to pardon American prisonero
WASHINGTON (AP) The Cuban government anounced Monday it
would pardon all U.S. citizens serving prison terms on the island, including
those held for airline hijackings. The State Department welcomed the move
as a positive step and said 33 Americans were involved.
The announcement, through the Czechoslovakia embassy here, said Cuba
was responding to requests from the prisoners' families and from social
organizations and members of Congress. -
The pardoned prisoners may not all return to the United States since some
have time still to serve in American jails or would face trial in U.S. courts.,
U.S. officials said before making the choice of returning to the United
States the American citizens would be informed if they faced jail at home.
Acting chancellor for A&T;naraied;5'Si;
GREENSBORO (AP) University of North Carolina President William
C. Friday Monday named Cleon F. Thompson Jr. acting chancellor of North
Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro.
Thomspon, 48, is vice president for the 16-campus UNC system. He
succeeds Lewis C. Dowdy, who asked last week to retire as chancellor
effective June 30, 1931.
Friday has asked the school's board of trustees to select a new chancellor
by July 1, 1981. ,
At a news conference Monday in Greensboro, Friday praised Thompson as
"a very competent person and one who has worked at A&T before." He said
that with Thompson serving as interim chancellor, there should be no break
in the "forward motion of that institution."
Thompson said he was looking forward to working at the school. "I
consider this indeed an honor and a pleasure to serve during this interim
Israel outlines peace talk strategy
WASHINGTON (AP) Israel has presented an outline of its stand on
Palestinian autonomy to U.S. officials in preparation for a new round of
negitiations scheduled to begin today.
The document, brought from Jerusalem by Chaim Kubersky of the
Interior Ministry, was kept secret but diplomatic sources said it indicated
Israel was taking a constructive attitude. U.S. officials were described as
Meanwhile, American mediators held informal separate meetings with
Egyptian and Israeli negotiators.
The formal talks, suspended in May, are scheduled to resume; at Blair
House this afternooiT under the supervision of Sol M. Linowitz, President
Jimmy CartePs special Miiieast mediator. 5 ;
There seems little chance that over the two days alloted for negotiations an
agreement can be reached on how to elect a Palestinian council and on a
definition of its powers. ,
The administration is planning on a postelection summit meeting with the
date to be set later at which Carter will confer with Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
The two sides have informally agreed to defer consideration of the status
of Jerusalem as a means of aiding the current round of talks. The city was
reunited by Israel after the 1969 war with the annexation of a mostly Arab ' .
sector that Jordan had held for 19 years. .
'OSLO, Norway (AP) The 19S0 Nobel Peace Prize
was awarded Monday to Adolfo Perez Esquivel, an
Argentine human rights activist who boldly challenged -his
country's military government and paid for it with
more than a year in prison.
The 43-year-old sculptor and architect was honored
for having "shone a light in the darkness" of
Argentina during a period of leftist terrorism and right-
repression, the Norwegian Nobel

Perez Esquivel, who heads an organization called
Peace and Justice Service, was chosen over 70 other
nominees, including President Jimmy Carter, Pope
John Paul II and two of the negotiators of the
peace, British Foreign Secretary Lord
and Zimbabwe Prime Minister Robert
. The prize carries a stipend of 80,000 Swedish kroner,
equivalent to $212,000.
The winner told reporters in Buenos Aires,
Argentina, that the prize does not belong to one person
but to all in his Latin American rights movement. He
said it would stimulate him to continue working
in search of a "change in society that will allow
man to live with more dignity."
It was the third time in six years that an individual or
group devoted to human rights work won the peace
prize, one of five annual awards established by the will
of the Swedish inventor of dynamite, Alfred Nobel.
The others were Soviet dissident Andrei Sakharov in
1975 and the prisoners-rights organization Amnesty
International in 1977.
Last year's peace prize went to Roman Catholic
missionary Mother Teresa of Calcutta, India.
The Argentine was nominated by the 1976 peace
prize winners, Mairead Corrigan and Betty Williams of
the Peace People movement in Northern Ireland.
Another Peace People leader, Ciaran McKeown,
described him Monday as "a contemporary Gandhi or
Martin Luther King extremely uncompromising and
Perez Esquivel's activism was born in Argentina's
mounting political violence of the late 1960s and early
1970s and was based on his own Roman Catholicism
and on Indian leader Mohandas K. Gandhi's
philosophy of. non-violence. N-
In 1973, he founded the Ecumenical Movement of
Peace and Justice, made up of Catholics, Protestants
and others opposed .to the violent confrontation
between left- and right-wing political forces in
Argentina. A year later, he became secretary-general of
the Peace and Justice Service, & Buenos Aires-based
network of human rights activists throughout Latin
The right-wing military seized power in Argentina in
1976, sharply curtailed political activity and launched a
campaign that eventually crushed the militant leftist
Human rights groups estimate that between 5,000
and 15,000 Argentines vanished during the 1970s and
believe many of the missing were abducted and killed
by military or police forces. Hundreds of political
prisoners remain in Argentine prisons.
f Perez Esquivel in particular took up the cause cf the
"desaparecidos," the disappeared, and their families.
His organization also supported non-violent
demonstrations in Brazil, Paraguay, Ecuador
other military-ruled Latin American nations.

students, Lane said the number of women
faculty members was not increasing at the
same rate and blamed individual departments
for the lack of women faculty.
"All recruiting is actually done at the v
department level," she said. "Some may be
actively recruiting women and others may not
. "It is very easy for departments to say that
there are no qualified women in thier field,"
Lane said. "I believe there are women
available, but it takes some searching."
According to the 1979-80 Statistical f
Abstract of Higher Education in North
Carolina, there are 1,736 full-time faculty at
UNC-CH. Of those, 1,390 are men and 346
are women. In the 16-campus UNC system
there are 6,601 faculty members, 1,674 of
whom are women.
Lehman said the University was recruiting
women faculty but has run into barriers in its
attempts. "(The University) is trying to hire
more women faculty," she said. "But if you
have a good female professor, everyone is
trying to get her."
"Lane said in the sciences and in the School
of Business Administration there were few
women faculty and many women students.
tShe. said there was only one female professor
in the School of Law.
"I'm sure that all the Affirmative Action
papers are being signed. But there isn't a
groundswell of hiring women," Lane said.
"In some schools, there have been active
programs to recruit minorities," she said.
"There are Affirmative Action programs in
some universities where the officer sees it as
his responsibility to get lists of women who
can be hired."
Lane said no women at UNC-CH were
hired at the full professor level. They are
brought in at the lowest level, while many
men are hired as full professors, she added.
"There will be more women professors in
the future, but men have more experience
now," Balfour said. "There didn't used to be
more women students! It takes a. while for
them to get into the workforce," she said.
"There are so many women with degrees
floating around as secretaries," Balfour said.
"You do' not need a degree in philosophy to ,
be a secretary. It's kind of a waste."
Lane said the Association for Women
Faculty was organized last year "to create
and maintain a hospitable environment for
Communication among1 women is

at May -care cezzzer
ATLANTA (AP) An explosion that authorities said may
have stemmed from a faulty boiler tore through a one-story
brick day-care center where 90 preschoolers were playing
Monday Four children and an adult were killed and six
children and an adult were injured, hospital officials said.
"It was so quick," said Melinda Cole, a teacher at the
center. "All I could think was, 'Get to the door. Get out,
children, get out.", I got all 12 of mine out safe and
accounted for." '
"It was terrible, really terrible," said Tinnie Baugh, a
teacher at another day-care center across the street. "Some of
the kids were badly hurt. I saw one little boy whose fingers
were missing," she said.
Mayor Maynard Jackson, hurrying to the Gate City Day
Care Center in the predominantly black Bowen Homes
housing project on the city's northwest side, tried to assure
skeptics in a crowd of about 1,500 people who gathered that
there were no indications of foul play.
Speaking through a bullhorn amid a scene of mangled pieces
of concrete, brick and wood, Jackson said: "The only
evidence we have at this time is that this was an accident. We
are not certain what caused this, but it looks like it could have
been an explosion in the furnance." i
One man in the crowd shouted back; "It was the Ku Klux
kiari."- ; .-
Jackson said he had ordered other housing project day-care
centers evacuated while their furnances were inspected.
He also ordered increased police patrols for housing
projects in the city. Atlanta's blacks have been concerned
recently about the unsolved deaths of eight black children and
the disappearance of six others and by a bomb which exploded
in a city Housing Authority warehouse last week. No one was
injured in that blast. '
About 487 children attending an elementary school across
the street from the blast scene were evacuated after a bomb
threat. The mayor announced the establishment of a rumor
control unit to stem rumors about the incident. "Please do not
engage in spreading rumors if you do not know they're true,'!
Investigators said a preliminary examination showed the
boiler of the furnace had exploded. Jim Tate, a spokesman for
Atlanta Gas Light Co., said the boiler may have had too much
pressure or not enough water.
The names of the dead, who included one employee of the
center, were not immediately available.
Those injured were treated at Grady Memorial Hospital
following the 10:20 a.m. explosion. Mike Yelton, a hospital
spokesman, said one injured child underwent surgery for a
skull fracture, and another had second- and third-degree burns
over 25 percent of his body. All but one of the injured were
children, he said.

GREENSBORO (AP) A friend of
slain Communist Workers Party
member James Waller testified Monday
that Waller told him the CWP members
be a violent person.
But Stephenson speculated that if
Waller had a gun, he might have used
violence to carry out his political
had guns and were prepared, for violence 'objectives. Waller,' He said was "trying
at a Nov. 3 "Death to the Klan" rally
that erupted in gunfire and left Waller
and four other communists dead.
Following the testimony by Rex W.
Stephenson of Greensboro, attorneys
for six Ku Klux Klansmen and Nazis
charged in the deaths rested their case.
Under cross-examination, Stephenson
said.Waller never discussed plans for the
CWP V: Nov. 3 rally. Stephenson also
told Assistant District Attorney Jim
Coman that he didn't consider Waller to

Stephenson, who said he worked for
about six months with Waller at a
Greensboro sewage treatment plant, said
Waller told him the CWP needed a
martyr. He said the CWP had been
trying to organize labor parties at area
Cone Mills textile plants, but Waller told
him the group "was not getting enough
attention" and it needed "national TV
coverage so they could organize the
party for more members."
In other afternoon testimony, Scott
Sims of Greensboro testified that at the
time of the shootings he was in a cab
traveling toward Everitt Street, the scene
of the shootings. Sims, a resident of the
area, said he heard two gunshots and
looked to the left of the intersection of
Everitt Street and Carver Drive.
Sims said he saw two people in front
of the Morningside Homes apartment
complex with pistols. Although he could
not identify the two, Sims said one of
them wore a yellow raincoat. In earlier
testimony, a CWP member wearing a
yellow raincoat was linked to pistol fire.

"It's crazy, but I like the feeling I
have up here," Brashear says, j
"I feel powerful up here. Not better
than anyone, just powerful. I like
knowing that I can see things that no one
else can see. j
Initially he was hired to work the1!
smaller crane on the site, but the
operator of that rig, although much
more experienced, didn't want to switch.
"It was fine with me," Brashear adds
quickly. "I like being taller than him."
As the crane continues to rock,
Brashear has the block nearly to his
"office" window, demonstrating ways
that he can control the swing of a

third floor," he says, increasing the
swing of the block. "People always
scatter when they hear that thing come
Brashear laughs as he lowers the block
slowly. He thinks of setting it on his
boss's pickup truck momentarily but
laughs the idea off and sets the block
back where it had originally been. The
counterweights clap loudly once again.
"I'm not in a union here," Brashear
says a little later, as we step from his
office, "I make $6.25 an hour, but if
there'd been a union I wouldn't have
gotten the job in the first place. After .
this job with one of the biggest cranes
on the East Coast I could find
something in a union up North for $20
to $30 an hour. I feel like I'm learning
something every day here and making a
right good living at the same time."
He locks the door in fear of
weekend daredevils that scale his
crane and turns for the greasy ladder
amid a scurry of wasps. Once again he
nimbly makes his descent down the
ladder while his "office" sits awkwardly
facing Durham, awaiting another
