From stare and wire reports
GREENSBORO Six American Nazis
and Nazi supporters were arrested Monday
on charges of conspiring to stage a series
The six were arrested by federal agents
on charges that they planned to blow up a
large petroleum storage facility, a shop
ping mall, part of downtown Greensboro
and a chemical fertilizer plant.
The indictment charged that the group
planned to carry out the attacks in the
event that several Ku Klux Klansmen and
Nazis were convicted of first-degree mur
der in the slayings of five Communist
Workers Party members. The CWP acti
vists were shot to death on Nov. 3, 1979;
as they staged a "Death to the Klan" ral- '
ly in Greensboro. The defendants were
found not guilty of the deaths.
The indictment accused the six of plan
ning to put the napalm-type gelatin explo
sive in 55-gallon barrels "placed in
crowded areas of the city and remotely
detonated by radio controlled detonators
at 4 p.m. so as to maximize the destructive
Each of the defendants was charged in
an indictment returned Monday by a
federal grand jury in Asheville with one
count of conspiracy.
Those charged were Frank Lee
Braswell, 48, of Penland and his wife,
Patsy, 42, and four Winston-Salem men,
Raeford Melano Caudle, 38, Joseph Gor
rell Pierce, 28, Roger Allen Pierce, 25,
and James Christopher Talbert, 30.
Caudle, a former Klansman who has
appeared at Nazi rallies, was arrested
along with other Klansmen and Nazis fol
lowing the Nov. 3 shooting, but he was
Gorrell and Roger Pierce, who are
brothers, later announced they were join
ing forces with a group of Nazis, Klans
men and members of the John Birch
Society to turn North Carolina and South
Carolina into a "racist mccca." Gorrell
Pierce identified himself as a former
grand dragon of the Federated Knights of
the Ku Klux Klan.
Braswell has been identified by the
B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation League as
head of a Nazi unit in Mitchell County.
Authorities said Monday's indictments
culminated a lengthy investigation by
agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms.
A courthouse source who asked not to
be identified said a large gasoline tank
farm on Interstate 40 west of Greensboro
was one of the targets of the alleged con
spiracy and that the Guilford County
Courthouse in the downtown area of
Greensboro was another.
Harold Covington of Raleigh, leader
of the National Socialist Party of
America, said he was shocked by the in
dictments and said that "nothing like that
was going on to the best of my knowledge
during the Greensboro trial."
Covington, who attended much of the
Klan-Nazi trial and worked to raise
money for the defendants, said the
federal government was trying to portray
the Nazis as crazy maniacs. "The only
time we ever hurt anybody is when we
were attacked," he said.
The trial in Guilford County Superior
Court began Aug. 4 after seven weeks of
jury selection and continued for days,
making it the longest trial in North
Carolina history. The jury deliberated
seven days before returning a verdict.
In November, an all-white jury of six
men and six women acquitted the six
Klansmen and Nazis of the shooting

... he and Residence Hall Association President Robert Bianchi were inauguarted into office lastjmight.
By MELODEE ALVES
; Stafr Writer
Student Body President Scott Norberg
was sworn in last night by Chief Justice
Roy Cooper at the Inauguration ceremo
nies, along with Residence Hall Associa
tion President Robert Bianchi.
"This is the third time that I've taken
the oath last Tuesday so that I could
assume my duties, last Wednesday along
with the new members of the Campus
Governing Council and tonight," Nor
berg said opening his address.
"I take this as a mandate to be Student
Body President for the next three years,"
Before Norberg was sworn in, outgoing
RHA President Peggy Leight and Bianchi
made remarks and outgoing Student Body
President Robert Saunders gave his fare
. well speech and thanks to those who
worked for him this past year.
"The people that work for you do all
the work," he said. "By having them here,
they took the load off me. They were the
best qualified, most experienced to serve in
Student Government in a long time."
Saunders referred to Norberg, who
served as one of Saunders' executive as
sistants as one of his right-hand men
who was difficult to lose during the cam
paign. Saunders went on to thank each
member of his cabinet and members of the
faculty, administration and organizations
with whom he worked closely in the past
"The office was well-mixed with ex
perience and new blood. That's why we
got so rnucfaccomplished," he said.
To help Norberg continue to achieve in
Student Government, Saunders presented
him with a survival kit. The kit included
a harmonica, to relieve frustration; a
Chapel Thrill T-shirt; presigned pass-fail
and Drop Add cards; a Carolina Blue
alumni suit, with optional Old Well tie; a
certificate proclaiming him an honorary
citizen of High Point and Skoal chewing
tobacco, to help him to relax.

State Depiu increases military.. aM to El Salvador
The Associated Press
The State Department, declaring that leftist guer
rillas in El Salvador may launch a new offensive,
announced Monday a $25 million increase in military
aid and a 20-man increase in U.S. military training
experts for that country.
Spokesman William Dyess said the aid package would
include the delivery of additional helicopters, vehicles,
radar and surveillance equipment and small arms.
The additional training personnel would raise to 54
the number of Americans serving in military-related
pyesfsi-iaf the U.S. personnel would hot go "Beyond"
the garrison area or take part in combat operations.
"The insurgents are regrouping and massive
quantities of arms remain in their hands, either in
side El Salvador or they have reason to expect that
additional arms are waiting to be smuggled in,"
He said the new military personnel being assigned
to El Salvador would be divided into four five-man
teams. They will train the Salvadoran military in
communications, intelligence, logistics and other
skills to stop infiltration and to respond to terrorist
attacks, he said.
The administration also is examining El Salvador's
economic needs and may increase the $63 million al
ready planned for the current fiscal year.
The announcement on military assistance repre-
sents another escalation in American military involve
ment in EI Salvador. -But the administration says
there are no plans to send combat forces nor to es
tablish a Vietnam-type involvement there.
.VnihcHouscjot: Representative$,;meinwhiIe,'.more. ,'
than 40 members said Trfaf telegram to President ""
Ronald Reagan that one or more advisers are likely
to be killed, "forcing the United States either into
another Vietnam or a humiliating withdrawal."
The House members, led by Rep. Richard L. Ot
tinger, D-N.Y., said Congress must be consulted
under the War Powers Act since Reagan was involving
U.S. military personnel in hostilities in El Salvador.
Earlier in the day. Senate Democrats said after a
closed briefing that President Reagan's response to El
Salvador was lopsided, leaning toward military aid and
advisers rather than economic assistance.
Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio, said new U.S. advisers
being sent to El Salvador were prime targets for
guerrilla rebels. He said sending such advisers might
violate the War Powers Act.
Glenn confirmed after the briefing that the ad
ministration is sending additional advisers by saying
President Reagan may be violating the War Powers
Act by committing American military personnel to
: " Who-can said,
"Obviously our people go down there as "prime tar
gets." - : - ' ; ;--
Glenn said he supported Reagan administration
policy earlier but said he now questions a military
response in light of news reports that El Salvador's
government is successfully resisting rebels on its own.
"The government claims it has things under con
trol," Glenn said. "Are we going in after the fact of
an already improved situation?"
Pell said last week that rather than act on its own,
the United States should seek action by the Organi
zation of American States to get a peace settlement
in El Salvador.
But Pell quoted the administration officials as
saying El Salvador could request OAS action, but
the United States should not ,
Asked why, Pell said, "I think it would then look
like a rather heavy handed Uncle Sam, perhaps."
But Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C, said the adminis
tration should "do whatever is necessary to keep
1 Central America and South jmcrica from being
taken over by Marxists. " ' " .
"There are nervous nellies saying we've got to do
nothing, not even unhook the fire hose when the
house is burning down," Helms said.
Helms is chairman of the Senate foreign relations
subcommittee on western hemisphere affairs, which
was briefed by acting assistant secretary of state John
A. Bushnell and three other officials for two hours
YC airs new Humor Show weekly;
scripts written and taped by student
DTH W Owtn
UfC students tape original humor shows at VVXYC station
you can hear scripts written by students at 8 p.m. Tuesday
This week at the Renault Drive-In Theater, a new dimension
in horror. You '11 scream, you '11 stain your Levis when you see
Don't Look in the Dryer!...
Is there no limit to what producers will think up next for a
horror film? Tune your dial to 83.9 FM Tuesday nights at 8:00
to hear similar skits, along with a variety of others, on WXYC's
new Humor Show. You can listen to original humor written en
tirely by UNC students.
Mario Baldessari, Randy Jones, David Von Gunten, Chuck
Bennett, Jennifer Cresimore, ail undergraduates, and Elizabeth
Moose, a 1980 graduate, are the writers and performers for the
new show. Tom Young, assistant production director at WXYC,
does most of the show's production while Jeff Eason, programs
director at WXYC, assists him.
Jennifer Cresimore, a sophemore Englishspeech communi
cations major, explained, "e got the idea for the show from
an Honors 28 course, a humor seminar, under Max Steele
(professor of English). Mario, Randy, David and I all had the
class. Max had an interest in reviving a humor magazine at
Carolina. We were going to help with it when Stephanie asked
us if we wanted to do a show on the air with the stuff we had
written for Max's class. We jumped on the chance."
"Max is really enthusiastic about what wc are doing. He has
given us a lot of support, and he has helped with publicity,"
Stephanie Bircher, news director of WXYC, further explained
how the idea for the show emerged.
"The idea was floating around the studio to do a comedy
show. I thought of Jennifer who had just finished a course
with Max Steele. They did a demo tape. It sounded good so we
used it for the first show," Bircher said.
"Mostly, the listener response is very good," Eason said.
"We did have three nasty phone calls during the first how
over 'Moral Majority Armchair Playhouse.' It portrayed the
voice of God as a Southern preacher. It was an Adam and Eve
skit. It was really funny."
The show is all original humor and material, Bircher said.

Susan said that as early as during the rape it
self, she tried to disassociate herself from it. She
remembered thinking, "Is my hair clean if I
have to go to the hospital?"
Regardless of how hard the fight, Susan said
that "You finally hit a point wherejou realise
that you aren't going to stop it no matter what
you do. You start building your mental defenses
to handle the aftermath.
