The civil rights movement under the leadership of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made great strides in
achieving equal rights for black people, but King's
dream is not yet fulfilled, said Yolanda King,
daughter of the former civil rights leader.
King, who is also an actress in the upcoming TV
movie "King," spoke in Memorial Hall Sunday night
in a celebration of Martin Luther King's birthday
during a program sponsored by several campus
organizations. "We must recommit ourselves to his
unfinished work; we must grab hold of the dream,"
"Morally and spiritually we are on the verge of
bankruptcy," she said. During Martin Luther King's
campaign for civil rights, segregation was ended in
the South in about 10 years, King said. White people
had a forced sense of superiority during that time,
1984 finds us with a black Miss America, the first
black man in space and equal chances to enter col
leges and universities, King said. Yet at the same
time, we're living with a system that gives $22 billion
to education while giving $158.7 billion to the Pen
tagon. "And with brother Reagan in office, the
figures have swollen to gross proportions," she said.
King called it absurd that the world's superpowers
have the abilitv to rtfstrov the world eight times.
"Now come on, that is quite absurd. Once is all it's
going to take," she said.
According to King, there are many kinds of
violence in the world. People who are selfish or bent
on vengence are examples, she said. "Cutting school
lunches and food stamps is also violence," she said.
The recent Martin Luther King holiday approved
by Congress will be meaningless unless people
understand what King's message was and what he
stood for, King said. Loving one another and making
views known through non-violence is what he tried to
convey, she said.
Martin Luther King's dream is still only a dream,
she said. Students are still graduating from college il
literate, and more than 50 percent of black youths are
unemployed. "In 1984, Jim Crow is dead, but Jim
Crow Esquire is alive and well," she said.
The tool for solving the problems of blacks today
is the tool of non-violence, King said. "My father's
words still ring true," she said and quoted her father
as saying, " 'Either we will live as brothers and
sisters, or we will perish as fools.' "
"Violence isn't macho or courageous," King said.
"It is harder to face an enemy with love than with
violence." The notion of non-violence seeks to build,
not to destroy, she added.
Today's generation should appreciate those who
fought for the rights they now have, King said.

Legal moves give Hutchins more time
By TOM CONLON
RALEIGH As the N.C. Supreme Court granted con
victed killer James W. Hutchins a stay of execution Friday,
the court brought to an end a day of dramatic legal maneu
vering. Just moments earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court had cleared
the way for Hutchins' execution. The court reversed a stay
granted at 12:05 a.m. Friday in the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of
Appeals in Richmond, Va.
Hutchins, sentenced in 1979 for the shooting deaths of two
Rutherford County sheriffs deputies and a state Highway
Patrol trooper, was scheduled to be the first prisoner ex
ecuted in North Carolina since 1961.
Rutherford County Sheriff Ray Dixon expressed his dis
appointment just after the N.C. Supreme Court's decision
Friday. Hutchins had won so far, Dixon said, but it wouldn't
be for long.
"Sooner or later they've got to run out of things to do
over," Dixon said. "I think sooner or later he'll be executed.
It appears the courts are not standing behind law enforce
ment.' At a 6:45 news conference at Central Prison, Hutchins' at
torney Roger Smith said Hutchins seemed to be relieved,
pleased, humbled, exhausted and drawn.
"We talked to him about the effort and the vigils held for
him," Smith said. "He expressed his gratitude for that.
After that we knelt and had a brief prayer and gave thanks
that he was still among the living."
But the process is not over, despite Hutchins' victory. The
state now wants to execute Hutchins on March 16, The
Associated Press reported Sunday. Superior Court Judge
William Freeman of Winston-Salem will hear the state's re
quest today in Polk County Superior Court in Columbus.
Friday's long day of legal actions began before dawn when
reporters assembled in the visitor's reception area at Central
Prison. Prison officials, just six hours earlier, had been pre
pared to administer a lethal injection to Hutchins in the
state's death chamber. But the stay granted by. 4th Circuit
Appeals Judge J. Dickson Phillips on the grounds that
North Carolina's imposition of the death penalty prevents
people opposed to capital punishment from sitting on juries
meant that the state would have to delay the execution.
At 6 a.m., Lee Alford, a Central Prison information of
ficer, informed the media that the U.S. Supreme Court
would hold a hearing at 10 a.m. According to state law, Hut
chins had to be executed between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., or a new
execution date would have to be set.
Dixon, who as sheriff was at the scene of the killings Hut
chins had been convicted of, denounced the stay granted by

mises and "vague gobbledygook" in the
first candidate debate of 1984.
Mondale, the front-runner in public
opinion polls among the eight Democratic
contenders, replied "baloney" to the at
tacks that transformed the debate from
discussion to confrontation.
Sen.- John Glenn said he was "dis
gusted and tired of all the vague pro

"You cannot lead this country if you've

Mondale paid a price for his lead in the
public opinion polls. Practically all the

Mondale, Hart, Glenn and McGovern
shared the stage with Sens. Alan
Cranston and Ernest Hollings, Reubin
Askew and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Mondale said afterward that he
thought the debate went "very well."
Asked about his sharp exchange with
Glenn, Mondale said; "I think the au
dience understood what I was saying ...
My record is very specific."
The exchange with Glenn, currently
Mondale's prime challenger, began when
Mondale ticked off several proposals to
reduce budget deficits but neglected to
put a pricetag on any of his ideas.
"That's the same vague gobbledygook
of nothing we've been hearing through
out the campaign. We haven't heard any
specific numbers except 'cut it by half.'
"Is this going to be a Democratic party
that promises everything to everybody?
... I'm disgusted and tired of all the vague
promises. I wish the former vice president
would get some figures down," said the
He said Mondale was backing pro
posals that could add as much as $170
billion a year to the budget.
Mondale got very angry.
He sought a point of personal
privilege, not necessary since there were
no rules in the debate, and asked: "Who
has the floor? Who has the floor?" He
"I've listened to about a six-minute
speech all of it baloney." He then said,
"Mr. Glenn voted to create these $200
billion deficits" by voting in 1981 on
behalf of President Reagan's spending
and tax cuts. He accused Glenn of using
Moments later, Mondale said he favors
cuts in the budget for the military and
agriculture programs, as well as a pro
gram to hold down health care costs, all
totaling $70 billion in savings.
He also said he favors raising taxes by
about $60 billion, and adding about $20
billion for selected social programs.
He disputed Glenn's accusation that
his program would cost $170 billion.
Also during the three-hour debate, the
eight Democratic presidential candidates
argued defense strategies and agreed that
a woman should receive strong considera

Second half rally lifts Heels over Wake
Manuel announces for editor
Christine Manuel, a junior journalism
and political science major from Fayette
ville, has announced her candidacy for
editor of The Daily Tar Heel.
"Working for a newspaper has always
been what I have wanted to do, not just
at The Daily Tar Heel" Manuel said.
"It's always been fun for me. The Tar
Heel is an exciting place, and it's some
thing that I would like to continue."
Emphasizing more student feedback
and participation, Manuel outlined some
of her ideas for the paper, if she is
"I would have open meetings through
out the campus about once a month
where the editor could sit down with stu
dents to let students voice their concerns
and air their gripes about the Tar Hi., ' "
"Students need an alternative to tell
the Tar Heel how they feel. They don't
always have time to sit down and type out
a 60-space letter on how they feel."
Manuel said she would like lo create a
new position on the newspaper.
"I want to establish an ombudsman
that would act as a liaison between stu
dents and the Tar Heel" she said.

Matt Doherty didn't like the idea, but
he admitted after North Carolina's 70-62
win over Wake Forest in Greensboro
Saturday that the contest had been one of
survival for the top-ranked Tar Heels.
"I don't like to think of it that way,
but maybe that's the best way to put it,"
And for a while Saturday, it didn't
look like survival would be possible. The
Tar Heels were outrebounded 18 to 14 in
the first half, a half in which center Brad
Daugherty spent . nine minutes' on the
bench with three fouls. Still, North
Carolina trailed by only five points at
The Tar Heels came out after halftime
and played what coach Dean Smith called
their best half of basketball this year
and they survived the test of the No. 12
"Wake lost one game to Georgia Tech,
and they wanted to redeem themselves,"
Doherty said. "We were down five and
we needed to get going, so we just went
out and got back in the game.
"I think we played great defense
against Maryland in the first five minutes
of the second half, and today we did that
again.. That's what got us back into it."
Wake's Kenny Green led the Deacons
to their halftime lead, scoring 15 of his
game-high 19 points in the first half,
much to the dismay of Smith.
"Kenny Green put on a show," Smith
said of the 6-6 sophomore. "That was
our goal for the game to stop Kenny
Green and jam him like we jammed
(Maryland center Ben) Coleman. We
didn't quite get that done."
Green was able to get into the heart of
the Tar Heel defense, and he was a major
factor in the foul trouble of Daugherty
and senior forward Sam Perkins.
"Kenny Green is a tough player,"
Doherty said, "and he played a good first
half. If he gets in the low post and we
play good defense on him, you're going
to get some fouls. We got some of our big
men in foul trouble early, but we were
able to stay with them. I think that shows
the depth of our bench with Joe Wolf and
Michael Jordan, who scored 15 points
and collected five rebounds for North
Carolina, said the team wasn't concern
ed at halftime.
"We were confident at the half be
cause, with the way we were playing and
to be down only five, we knew we could
come out with a better half and maybe
with a victory," Jordan said. "We ex
pected to win and we knew we could win.
But, we knew it would be hard, and there
was a very tough gymnasium crowd
behind the other team.
"I think this team is better than what
last year's team was, but I think we can
be a lot better," Jordan added. "In the
first half of this game, I don't think we
played like we are capable of playing, but
in the second half, we played better. If we
can play a whole game like we played the
second half, we'll reach our capabilities.
"We weren't terrible in the first half,
but we didn't play up to our
Perkins, who led UNC with 17 points
and 11 rebounds, agreed that if the 1984
Tar Heel edition can play up to its
capabilities it can be better than the 1982
team that took the NCAA title in New
Orleans. And, although North Carolina's
opponents might not agree, Perkins said
the Tar Heels did have weaknesses at this
point in the season.
"Our weaknesses right now are tur
novers and inconsistent play on offense,"
Perkins said. "We have some inconsisten
cy in taking care of the ball. We have
times where we have good offensive and
defensive plays, and then all of a sudden
we let down. That's our weakness we
let down too much and I think that's
