Smith broke the record while in
England and again last year, after his
record was broken. He traveled 283
miles I idiu Chapel Hill to Washington,
D.C. to set another standard. Since then
the record again has been broken and
Smith is vying to break the present
record of 313 miles.
"It should be a lot of fun," Smith
said. His team members plan to have a
few tricks up their sleeves as they race
Duke University, Guilford College and
possibly the University of North
Carolina at Greensboro, who each boast
baby buggy pushing teams.
The trip will take each team up Route
29 through Charlottesville, Va., and
across the state to the nation's capitol.
"The Washington cops have agreed to
keep the mental health authorities from
delivering committal papers until after
the race," Smith said.
Pobel economics prize given
.STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) U.S.
economist Lawrence R. Klein, whose
models for forecasting economic trends
revolutionized the field, capped a strong
American showing in the 1980 Nobel
Prize series Wednesday by winning the
The 60-year-old University of
Pennsylvania professor won the
Memorial Prize in Economics and
became the eighth American laureate
among 11 winners this year. He was
selected for his creation of econometric
models used in analyzing economic
fluctuations and policies.
"Econometrics" is the use of
mathematics and statistics to verify and
develop economic theories.
The Royal Swedish Academy of
Sciences, which chooses the economics
winner, said Klein had been the leading
researcher in the field of analysis of
business fluctuations for 30 years.
Klein, an economics professor at
Pennsylvania since 1958, served as an
adviser ' to President Jimmy Carter
during the' 1976 presidential campaign
and has remained an unofficial
consultant to the administration. The
economist declined an official position
to avoid raising the issue of his previous
affiliation with the American
Communist Party, sources said. They
said he also cited his desire, to continue
his research. .
The native of Omaha, Neb., was a
Communist Party member during 1946
and 1947, while doing research at the
University of Chicago. He left the
United States for Britain during the
1950s, when Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy's
congressional committee was
investigating the alleged communist
connections of a number of prominent

Somehow, you just don't expect a man of the
cloth to wear khakis and Topsiders, but where
could be a better place for a preppie priest than
Father Bob Duncan of Chapel of the Cross says
he wears khakis for several reasons. They are work
clothes that don't show dirt, he likes to dress simply
and they are a symbol that fits in here, he says.
If 1 wore a three-piece suit every day, I'd look
like the establishment,' he says. His attire enables
him to blend in with the people he meets every day.
But instead of going the preppie route all the way
and donning an Izod shirt, he wears the black shirt
and collar so people can identify him as what he
is a priest.
Duncan says he usually gets two reactions when
he greets people on campus in his collar and khakis.
(In some cases) "they're not afraid to respond,"
he says. "My saying hello to them isn't threatening.
I can cause a lot of people to smile as I walk along."
On the other hand, Duncan says, "A lot of
people will see me and look the other way because
of their feelings of guilt and discomfort."
But Duncan says he wants students to realize
"what God is up to in relation to them. Often,
people's faith has been a great hurt to them," he
says. "They've been taught in relation to God they
should feel guilty.
"Many students are in great distress because
those who have spoken in the name of truth haven't
spoken in love sometimes not even in truth," he

But God is not a tyrant, Duncan says. He is a
loving God who wants a close relationship with
Duncan says he wants to take this message, which
he has found life-changing, and tell studenlsabout
it in their own terms.
It's tough being young, especially for college
students who are confronted with decisions and
growing ip, he says. "We put ourselves through
hell experimenting. God's very gracious about that.
He gives us a lot of rope."
Duncan says the role of the church is to "accept
the campus the way it is and preach the good news
Students need to know they're loved, he says.
"Their parents tell them they're bad, their teachers
tell them they don't know anything and the world
tells them there's no place for them."
But Duncan says he wants students to know
they're loved and there is a purpose for what they
are going through now. He says God can accept
anyone, regardless of his actions.
z "God can handle it. You can turn some pretty
bad things into some pretty good things," he says.
At a time when many students feel they're not
finished not good enough yet the church has the
responsibility of telling them they're needed and
that they're important, Duncan says.
"No one is any more valuable.. .or less valuable
than anyone else," he says. "What they (the
students) do really matters more than they really
know. It certainly doesn't matter any less than what
anyone else does."
