The terms "ultraconservative" and "radical"
are catch-phrases used by liberals to limit conserva
tive effectiveness, an official of the National Con
servative Political Action Committee said recently.
"We classify ourselves as mainstream America,"
said Steve DeArtgelo, NCPAC press secretary. By
slinging mud and calling names, he said, liberals
are doing what conservatives have done in the past.
"We never call anyone an ultraliberal," he said.
When NCPAC opposed former Sens. George
McGovern, D-S.D., and Frank Church, EMdaho,
the organization identified them as liberals, but .
never as ultraliberals, superliberals, or radicals, he
"Contrary to what the media has said, NCPAC
has never consciously attempted to distort voting
records of any of our opponents," DeAngelo said.
He said his organization sometimes made mistakes
and apologized for them. ..
For example, he said, NCPAC ran an article in
Idaho condemning Church for voting for a pay in
crease. NCPAC learned later that Church has inr
deed voted against the increase and took out a full
page ad apologizing to Church. "This part of the
story never comes out," DeAngelo said adding
that it left the impression that NCPAC deliberately
invented the accusations.
"There is so much you can say about these peo
ple that conservative groups don't have to make up
anything anyway, and of course they would not
because that would be unethical and wrong," he
Furthermore, DeAngelo said, conservatives had
the major issues smaller government and free
enterprise on their side during the 1980 election.
The conservatives may have entered the field of
new campaign technology before the liberals, but
application of the same technology would not be
as successful for the liberals, DeAngelo said. He
said if a liberal group targeted Sen. Orrin Hatch,
R-Utah, and told his constituents that he was
against forced busing, for voluntary school prayer
and for capital punishment, "they are only going
to enhance Mr. Hatch's popularity in Utah."
Because liberals could not win on the issues, he
said, they tried to make NCPAC the issue. .
DeAngelo said liberal groups distracted voters
from real issues when they said NCPAC was an ex
tremist group that played "fast and loose with the
"Ah example of this misrepresentation came
when (NCPAC President) Terry Dolan said, 'A
group like ours could lie through its teeth, and the
candidate they were helping could stay clean,' "
DeAngelo said. He said the press reported Dolan's
comment as meaning that NCPAC lied, although
Dolan was discussing the potential danger inde
pendent expenditure organizations posed to the;
American political system.
"We should go back to the days when people
were free to donate their money to candidates
without being hamstrung by the government,"
DeAngelo said. It was only when people used the
letter of the law to advance conservatives that the
liberal politicians and the news media began to cry
foul, he said.
Cal Thomas, vice president for communications
for Moral Majority, agreed with DeAngelo. "The
basic reason extremist statements are made about
us is that the people who have enjoyed power and
influence relatively unchallenged for the last 50
years or so are now being turned out of office.
Their influence has waned, and they are afraid of
having to find honest work or teach at a univer
sity." ' '
Thomas said the Moral Majority had never said
anyone was less religious if they disagreed with
some of the group's positions on issues. He said
that misconception had been repeated so often
that they had taken on a semblance of truth. "We
cannot possibly deny it as often as it is said, nor
could we get the space (press coverage) to do so,"
Thomas said the Moral Majority was exercising
its constitutional rights and moral obligations to
speak out on issues. "We are doing nothing dif
ferent than the anti-war activists, the civil rights ac
tivists, the feminists or the homosexuals," Thomas
"We are a politically conservative and pro
moral group," Thomas said. "We are not funda-
mentalist in the sense that the word has been used
to mean anti-intellectual or to describe the
Ayatollah (Khomeini of Iran) and the people who
shot (former Egyptian President Anwar) Sadat.
We believe in fundamentalism as it represents a
return to the basics that built this country and sus
tained it through foreign wars and internal up
heavals." The North Carolina state chairman for Moral
Majority, Rev. Lamarr Mooneyham, addressed
the issue of the Moral Majority and censorship.
"We have never advocated the removal, ban or
burning of any book or program," he said. All
that is advocated is that parents get involved and
inform themselves as to the content of their child
"We favor a pluralist society. All we ask is that
we be part of the plural," Mooneyham said. The
traditional family has been written out of the text
books, and chastity has been censored out of the
sex education classes, he said. "We are the ones be

Chapel Hill lawyer Rep. Trish Hunt, D-Orange, has been
named judge in the state's newly-created 15B judicial district.
The appointment was announced Wednesday by Gov. Jim Hunt.
Speaking of her appointment, Rep. Hunt said, "I'm very
pleased and proud that the governor has seen fit to appoint me."
She said her main concerns include the juvenile court system and
domestic cases. "I would hope that the -chief
district judge would assign me to
those areas," she said.
Hunt attended law school at UNC and
joined the legislature in 1973, when she f
was appointed to serve out the remainder f
of her husband's term after his death. She f
is employed by the Ctiapel,Hill:law firm f v -
of Cblemart, Bernholz, Dickerson, Bern- Lwiw
holz, Gledhill and Hargrave. ,
Brent Hackney, Gov. Hunt's press sec- ' Hunt
retary, said the local Democratic Executive Committee had the
responsibility of recommending someone to fill the vacant seat
.. in the legislature.
Hackney said the governor was required to appoint the person
the committee recommended. If he fails to do so within a speci
fied amount of time, the appointment becomes automatic.
Hackney said the governor's approval was just a formality.
Rep. Hunt's appointment came as no surprise to most political
observers. Her name had been mentioned 'as the most likely
choice since early July, when the new district was created by the
Ann Barnes, chairperson of the Orange County Board of
Commissioners, has been mentioned as a possible replacement
for Hunt in the General Assembly. Barnes was unavailable for
comment Wednesday afternoon.
If Barnes were appointed, a vacancy would be created on the
county Board of Commissioners. The county Democratic Exe
cutive Committee then would make a recommendation to the
board on Barnes' replacement.
Rep. Hunt will be sworn in as judge at 5 p;m. Monday in the
Chapel Hill District Courtroom.

A black student who entered the University
in 1970 had a better chance of graduating
within five years than one who entered in
1975, according to a report recently released
by the UNC Office of Institutional Research.
The 1975 freshman also had a 25 percent
less chance of graduating than a white student,
the report said.
The report figured the percentage of fresh
men who entered the University in a given year
and would regularly graduate within five
years. Results showed that of blacks who en
tered in 1975, only 47.9 percent graduated by
1980, while abput 52 percent of those who en
tered in 1970 had graduated by 1975. Of
whites who entered in 1975, 73.7 percent gra
duated within five years.
According to the report, when the University
began actively seeking black students in 1969,
black freshmen had only a 40 percent gradua-.
The rate climbed consistently through the
class of freshmen that entered in 1973, when
56 percent graduated, but the rate for the next
two years fell by more than 8 percent to 47.9
During the same period, the percentage of
whites who graduated within five years rose by
more than 14 percent to 73.7 percent in 1973.
Vice Chancellor for University Affairs
Harold Wallace said that he expected the
graduation rate of this year's freshmen would
be higher because of the higher credentials of
the entering freshmen and the better support
programs devised to help them, such as the
minority adviser program.
Wallace said he planned to study the situa
tion and that he would try to determine why
the students were not graduating. r . ;
Both Black Student Movement Chairperson
Mark Canady and Donald Jicha, associate
dean of the General College, said that they
thought the drop in black graduation was pro
bably tied to many things, including the eco
nomic situation, which made it harder for stu
dents to afford college.
Jicha said that statistics on minority stu
dents could be misleading because they made
up a small percentage of the student body.'
Small changes in the number of black students
graduating would cause a large change in the
percentage rates, he said. ,
Dr. Tim Sanford, associate director of insti
tutional research, said that UNC's graduation
rates were good in comparision with other
"We are higher than other public institu
tions but lower than the Ivy League schools,"
He said a nationwide study conducted by
the University of Tennessee showed that 40
percent of all students graduated after four
years from the institution they entered as
freshmen. He said the rate was only 20 percent
for blacks, showing that UNC's rating is much
higher than the national average.
Sanford said that his office figured the
graduation rate for five years after a student
entered the University because programs such
as accounting and pharmacy require five
The average graduation rate within five
years for students entering the University from
1967 to 1976 was 67.1 percent.
Women graduated more often with a rate of
71.9 percent for the nine-year span covered by
the report, compared with 64.6 percent of the
men in the same period.
: On the average, white women were most
likely to receive their diplomas within five
years, with 75.6 percent graduating, followed
by white males at 68.6 percent, black females
at 56 percent and black makes at 49 percent.
Larry Ellis directs Union
By JOHN D RESCUER
Larry Ellis believes in getting involved.
As a freshman, Ellis, a Morehead Scholar
from Skillman, N.J., was involved with five
campus organizations, including the Carolina
Union Activities Board. Now, two years later,
Ellis is president of the Union.
"1 saw the Union as unique and outstanding
then," Ellis said. "Even though there have
been ups and downs since then, I still have that
As president of the Union, Ellis is head of
the Union Activities Board and the Union
Board of Directors. It is with the Activities
Board, the group that plans Union-sponsored
programs, that Ellis works most of his 25 to 30
hours a week. One-third of student funds, or
about $145,000, is appropriated to the Union,
which sponsors programs ranging from free
movies to the North Carolina Symphony to
concerts like the Jefferson Starship perfor
mance this Sunday.
The Activities Board is unique in that the
12-member group operates on consensus
opinion. While Ellis admits that the policy of
unanimous approval slows the decision-making
process, he said the policy had advantages.
"By consensus, you get out all of the
opinions of each board member and try to
come up with the best possible decision," he
said.. "It teaches you at lot about yourself and
group dynamics and how you perform in a
group. It shows how you can relate to some
one on a personal basis, yet go into a board
meeting and candidly citique their program.
You have to separate business from your per
sonal life." .

'The Twilight Zone9
provides short study
break at Ehringhaus
By VINCE STEELE
DTH Staff Writer
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is
known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space
and as timeless as infinity. It b the middle ground
between light and shadow, between science and
supersition.... It b the area the Ehringhaus
Zoners call the Twilight Zone.
The E'haus Zoners is a group of students who gather in a
small dorm room almost every night to watch Rod Serling's
accounts of hapless visitors to the Twilight Zone.
Watching the show with the Zoners is like being at a
showing of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." When the
show comes on everybody in. the room recites the intro
duction. They laugh throughout most of the show, all shushing
each other with fingers pressed to their lips. They yell at par
ticularly inane or profound parts and at the end of each show
ing vote on whether it was a "good zone" or a "bad zone."
