.WASHINGTON (AP) The linal government
witness in the University of North Carolina
desegregation case was put on the defensive Wednesday
about a chart outlining apparent discrepancies between
course offerings at white and black schools in the UNC
D. Catherine Baltzell and Robert Dentler, both of
Abt Associates Inc. of Cambridge, Mass., drew up the
chart from course listings in University of North
Carolina catalogs. ' '
. On Tuesday, Baltzell, a senior analyst with the
Massachusetts firm, used the chart in testifying about
w hat she termed a relative lack of breadth and depth in
courses at the five traditionally black schools in the
16-campus UNC system.
Her.; testimony came in a hearing before an
administrative law judge on the U.S. Department of
Education's move to cut off about $100 million a year
in federal funds to UNC. The government has
maintained the university has tailed to adequately
Under cross-examination Wednesday by UNC
lawyer Ed Ashworth, Baltzell agreed the chart
indicated there were no courses at North Carolina
Central University in Durham in . anthropology,
anatomy, botany, genetics, public health, physics,
astronomy, insurance and real estate. At Winston
Salem State University the chart indicates no offerings
in botany, genetics and several other fields.
However, Ashworth produced catalogs from the
schools indicating at least one course offering in' all of
those fields at the two schools.
The Winston-Salem State catalogalso shows there
are five geography courses offered at the school while
the chart indicates there are none. And the catalog lists
12 physics courses, another area in which the chart said
there were no offerings. -
Baltzell said the geography listing appeared to be an
error. In the case of physics, she said she believed the
courses might have been entered on the wrong spot in
Under re-examination later in the day by government
lawyer Richard Foster, she said many of the individual
courses in the biological sciences pointed out by
Ashworth were counted under the overall category of
biology at NCCU and Winston-Salem State. This was
done because it was not possible to take a major or
minor in those areas, she said.
The government completed presentation of its case
with testimony by Baltzell. However, the record
remains open for other submissions.
The NAACP Legal Defense Fund, an intervenor on
behalf of the Department of Education in the case, will
begin calling witnesses today. The university is not
expected to begin presenting its case until early next

Commoner said. He called independent John
Anderson's campaign "more of the same,"
and said Republican Ronald Reagan and
President Jimmy Carter have shown a
willingness to allow corporate power to grow.
Turning to foreign affairs, Commoner said
the Citizen's Party believed it was wrong "to
interfere with a democratic government... we
made a mistake in Iran and it ought to be
acknowledged," he said.
Commoner offered numerous facts and "
figures to back his statements, saying at one
point that a rule of the party is the candidate
must speak facts.
He criticized George Bush for proposing
that the country could survive a nuclear war,
citing an official defense department
document that predicts a relatively small
nuclear bomb dropped on Chapel Hill would
kill all 43,000 citizens.
Commoner saki he did not expect to win.
"I don't really want to be president, I'm just
running," he said.
Earlier Wednesday, Commoner defended
the use of the word "bullshit" in his national
radio ads. He said the ads had drawn
attention to his campaign which he claimed
the media had been ignoring.
Commoner's running mate, La Donna
Harris of New Mexico, is the only woman
nominated by a major party this year. She is a
strong supporter of the Equal Rights
UNC profeooor testifioo in Klan trial
GREENSBORO (AP) A psychiatrist testified Wednesday that he believes
Jerry Paul Smith, one of six Ku Klux Klansmen and Nazis on trial in the
shooting deaths of five Communists, was conscious of his actions during the
Nov. 3 confrontation.
Dr. Robert Rollins, who was presented as an expert in criminal behavior
and amnesia, is a professor of psychiatry at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill and a lecturer at Duke University. He also is a former director
of Dorothea Dix mental hospital in Raleigh.
Rollins was called by prosecutors in an attempt to discredit Smith's claim
that he was unconscious during part of the incident last fall and could not
remember firing the pistol which allegedly killed Communist Workers Party
activist Cesar Vinson Cauce,
The defendants are charged in the shooting deaths of five CVR members
at an anti-Klan rally sponsored by the group last Nov. 3.
Callaglian resigns Labor Party post
LONDON (AP) James Callaghan resigned as leader of the deeply divided
opposition Labor Party on Wednesday, leaving its right and left wings to
battle for control of Britain's socialist movement.
The decision by the 63-year-old former prime minister not to run in the
party's annual leadership election Nov. 4 is seen as enhancing the chances
that another moderate will win. In January, the party will decide on a new

CO FSVGi' t From page V runner, immediately announced he would seek the leadership. At least four
whbih other contenders, all to the left of Healey, are expected to run.
Labor's center-right members wanted Callaghan to quit now to give them a
chance to gain the leadership before the Jan, 24 conference. The left-wing,
headed by former Energy Secretary Tony Benn, 56, wanted Callaghan to stay
as a lame-duck leader until the electoral college issue is settled.

Heat wave damages total 020 billion
WASHINGTON (AP) The final toll from this summer's heat wave is
1,265 deaths and nearly $20 billion in damage, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration reported Wednesday.
Only three other summers in this century have taken more American lives
in heat-related fatalities.
Most of those who died from the heat wave were either elderly or poor and
lived in non-air conditioned homes or apartments, the agency said.
Missouri, with 311 deaths, had the highest toll in the nation, although
other states had higher temperatures for longer periods.
The heat wave broke temperature records in more than a half-dozen states,
and in Dallas, Texas, the mercury climbed over 100 degrees each day from
June 23 to Aug. 3.
On one day, July 13, temperature records were set in three cities: Augusta,
Ga., had 107 degrees; it was 105 in Atlanta; and Memphis, Term., hit 103.
