Racism, poverty and war were the Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr.'s concerns during
the civil rights era, and King's non-violent
struggles led to new civil rights laws,
Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young said
Young, who worked closely with King
during the 1960s, spoke to about 350 peo
ple at Memorial Hall. The lecture, which
concluded a day-long series of events on
awareness of racism, was sponsored by
the Carolina Union Forum Committee.
"We have made gains in overcoming
racism and poverty in this country, but in
the area of war we haven't gone too far,"
Young said. "Martin had developed a
movement from 1955 to 1968 that had
systematically and non-violently address
ed racism and poverty."
Young reflected on the civil rights
movement, which he said began in 1955
when Rosa Parks, a respected black
woman in Montgomety, Ala., refused to
give up her bus seat to a white man at the
front of the bus.
"She was the type of person who, if
treated with respect, probably would've
complied with the law," Young said.
"But the bus driver was stubborn and
discourteous, and she refused to move.
At the next bus stop she was arrested."
Young said King then asked all blacks

Elections Board takes cuts
By BEN PERKOWSKI
The Elections Board volunteered a
$1,400 reduction in their Campus Gover
ning Council allocation for next year dur
ing budget hearings Tuesday night.
Andy Sutherland, chairperson for the
board, said he initially requested $1,700
for next year, but after considering the
desperate financial situation of the CGC
said he felt the Elections Board could
operate on only $300.
"Considering the prevailing austerity
that exists on campus, I think every
organization should make any kind of cut
they can," he said. "If we cut out some
luxuries we had this year, collect the
money from some fines and get the
cooperation of some student organiza
tions we should be able to get by on
Sutherland said one of the luxuries
which could be cut was holding election
returns in the Great Hall. "We can count
the ballots in a closet if we have to," he
Sutherland said he would like to buy a
$3,000 tabulating machine but, under the
circumstances, this is not the time to
make such a purchase. "Hopefully we
will be able to work on a happy relation
ship with the people who have the
machines," he said.
Sutherland added that student
organizations such as the Residence Hall
Association could help with things like
polltending for the Elections Board.
"Student organizations don't work to
gether as much as they should," he said.
"It's a matter of cooperation and com
munication." He said the reduction of funding and
possible complete cuts of some organiza
tions might make students more aware of
the benefit of these organizations. "This
awareness could have two effects.
Students might realize how much they
wanted that organization which was cut
or possibly how little it mattered," he
said. He added this might be an impetus
for students to vote for a fee increase.
The Finance Committee voted to
recommend to the full CGC that the
North Carolina Student Legislature be
allocated $2,718. This meant a $1,465 cut
in the NCSL's request for this year. The
NCSL was allocated $3,711 by the CGC
Finance Committee member Bill
Barlow (District 4) said: "It is a lousy
place for us (the Finance Committee) to
be in because these organizations make a
budget that they believe they will need to

Atlanta Mayor and former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young talked about racism, poverty and war A '
... Young said the policies of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had contributed to easing those problems
to boycott the buses for one day until the
bus driver and bus company apologized
to Parks, but they refused. A 381-day
non-violent boycott among
Montgomery's 50,000 blacks then
brought about change in policy, Young
get by, but we know that student money
just isn't going to make it."
Barlow added that in the case of the
NSCL there was a lot of benefit incurred
directly to the participants which didn't
benefit the entire University. He said that
considering this he felt the participants
should be willing to use more of their own
money or do more fund raising.
Mary Roff, delegate chairperson of
"NCSL, said cuts would hurt the organiza
tion, especially in the lodging category,
and that students in NCSL already spent
a great deal of their own money attending
Interim Councils at colleges throughout
the state. Roff said these Interim Coun
cils were an educational and critical por
tion of NCSL.
Jim Slaughter, state governor for
NCSL, said making students pay for a
large amount of the expenses might mean
the organization would turn toward one
which is open only for those who can af
ford it. "We want it to be open to all
students," he said.
The Finance Committee voted to
allocate the Carolina Athletic Association
$1,075 as opposed to the $2,800 which
was requested. Most of the cut came in
the category for a band to play at the
Homecoming dance. The CAA was
allocated $1,869 last year.
Jennie Edmundson, president of the
CAA, said during her campaign she
heard a lot of dissatisfaction from
students with Homecoming and that the
CAA will need money to make it better.
"The campus organizations will have to
pick up the support of a lot of the Home
coming events if that's what they want,"
The Finance Committee will recom
mend the Campus Y receive $1,972 for
their summer allocation. The Campus Y
requests money from the CGC for only
the summer months because they are self
supporting the rest of the year said David
Brown, co-chairperson for the Campus
Y. The Campus Y asked for $2,350 for
next year and received $2,535 last year.
v Brown explained they needed money
from the CGC to keep things running
during the summer because the Campus
Y has no fund raising potential during
that period. Brown said considering the
CGC financial situation he felt the alloca
tion was fair.
Student Body Treasurer Allen Robert
son said that there was $6,781 left to
allocate including the $4,238 given to the
Judicial Branch Monday night. This
figure does not include the Carolina Gay
Association allocation after press time

only 4 area rapes
By DEBORAH SIMPKINS
Four area rapes have been confirmed by
the Chapel Hill Police Department and all
since July 1983 are believed to have been
committed by the same rapist, police said
in a news conference Wednesday.
The rapes occured on July 10, 1983,
Jan. 5, 1984, March 4 and March 17 be
tween midnight and 2 a.m. in the Airport
Road to Hillsborough St. area7 Major
Arnold Gold, head of the uniformed
patrol, said. A March 28 assault and bat
tery incident, which occured in the
daytime near the Umstead recreation
area, was probably not related to the four
previous assaults, he said.
The Orange County Rape Crisis Center
has record of eight rapes since July 1983,
Director Mary Ann Chap said. Five, in
cluding one campus rape, occurred be
tween July and December, she said.
Another campus rape occurred in
January, Chap said, while two other
Chapel Hill rapes were in March. Univer
sity Police have had no rape reports this
year, said dispatcher Jerry Constable.
Gold said Chapel Hill police were re
questing that Gov. Jim Hunt post a
reward for the investigation of the four
rapes. He also said the Chapel Hill Police
Department had received technical and
man-power aid from the State Bureau of
Investigation. The department is working
on an undercover operation and has in
creased the number of officers on foot and
in cars, Gold said.
A composite of the rapist was obtained
from the last victim, although Gold said
there was no solid suspect and no solid
leads at the time. He said all the victims
described the attacker as a black male,
about 30 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5
feet 10 inches tall, weighing 160 to 175
pounds and of muscular build. Gold said
the rapist had a moustache, on occasion a
one- to two-day growth of beard, short,
well-kept hair in an Afro style and
medium to dark complexion. In response

If the United States can achieve more

nations, there is a good chance the coun
try can overcome the current crisis of
confidence in the world, Kurt Waldheim

the United Nations, spoke on current
world issues in a lecture titled "Crises of

"There is an increasing uneasiness as to
the relationship between the super

conflicts remain unsolved."
The United States should not be too
optimistic about arms talks with the
Soviet Union because the Soviets are
highly suspicious of American ad
ministrations, Waldheim said. He added,
however, that Vice President George
Bush's recent meeting with Soviet leader
Konstantin Chernenko could possibly
pave the way to future summit meetings
between the two superpowers.
"It would be a mistake to expect
dramatic changes in Moscow's policies
just because a new leader has taken

Police do have a psychological profile,
Gold said. "It doesn't tell a whole lot..
You can surmise he's very aggressive."
In each assault the rapist threatened
victims with a pocket knife and, in one
incident, a victim was cut, Gold said. In
the assault and battery case, the attacker
used an ice pick, Gold said, and was
described as a black man, but taller than
the rape suspect, he said.
"None of the victims (in the four
rapes) had a chance to run," Gold said.
He said the rapist approached the victims
from both directions but, in most in
stances, he walked past the women, then
turned back and grabbed them. All four
victims were walking in an unlit area by
themselves and were coming from the up
town area, Gold said. "Three of the vic
tims were taken into fairly dense, wooded
areas and assaulted," he said.
Police suspect the rapist lives in the
area because no one has seen or heard a
car in the vicinity at the time of the
assaults, Gold said.
He said Chapel Hill Police called a
news conference yesterday because the
police wanted to inform the public, make
the public safety-conscious and deter
females from walking alone at night. The
police also wanted to encourage victims
who have not reported assaults to do so,
"The rule of thumb says there are pro-:
bably more victims out there," Gold said.:
"We're hoping they'll come forward, at
least to the Rape Crisis Center and give us
information even on a blind report
or talk to us on the phone."
Anyone with any information is urged
to call Barry Thompson at 968-2760 or
the Orange County Rape Crisis Center at -967-7273,
Gold said. No names have to
be given, he said.
Gold said Orange County had a report '
of a black rapist with a knife a few mon
He said that attack occurred in the
daytime and was not similar to the
Chapel Hill rapes.
Waldheim said the arms race could be
stopped only if both sides established a
minimum amount of confidence. The
arms race if not stopped will
destory our world, he said.
On the United States involvement in
Lebanon, Waldheim said, "The solution
in Lebanon must be a political solution.
It cannot be a military solution."
Waldheim said political solutions,
rather than military means, must be used
in Central America because most of the
troubles existing there are based on social
He also talked about how the Central
American countries have suffered
because of problems with the world
"The world economy has not been
functioning well for many years,"
Waldheim said. "The developing coun
tries are the ones that suffer the most."
Everyone's energies should be con
centrated on reversing deteriorating social
and economic conditions in the world,
Waldheim said. He added that nations
were confronting each other now, when
instead they should be cooperating with

apologizing for the gloomy picture of the
