For some UNC students, it was
"curiosity" that brought them through
the drizzle to Carmichael Auditorium
Thursday night, but for others among the
6,000 in the stands it was Democratic
presidential candidate Gary Hart's vision
of the future.

RALEIGH Stressing the importance
of a Democratic victory in November,
presidential candidate Gary Hart brought
his campaign of "new ideas" to the Tri
The Colorado senator held a news con
ference at the Raleigh-Durham Airport
about 4 p.m. before going to Durham
where he met with community leaders
and spoke at St. Joseph's AME Church.
He topped the evening off with a rally at
Carmichael Auditorium on the UNC
campus before heading back to Wash
ington. "It is important that the Democratic
Party win the presidential election in
1984," Hart said. "I believe this country
can't tolerate four more years of
Reaganomics and arms build-ups."
Hart was in the state campaigning for
the May 8 primary. "I believe we can do
very well in this state," he said. He added
that public-opinion polls he had seen
showed him running neck-and-neck with
former Vice President Walter Mondale.
Though he is trailing Mondale in the race
for delegates to the Democratic National
Convention, he said he has a broad base
of support and believes he will close the

STV makes local showing
By MIKE ALLEN
Student Television Programming
Director John Wilson expressed satisfac
tion Wednesday night following the
premiere of STV's first full-length show
on Village Cable.
The program was the first production
since STV received its new equipment.
Segments on WXYC, the Duke
Carolina lacrosse game, Springfest and
the all-campus talent show were featured
on the program through the combined ef
forts of 15 people, Wilson said. "The 15
people that did this show had no training
in television before this," he said. "We
all had to learn how to use the equipment
ourselves," he added.
"We are all very proud of this," said
Asheley Lefter, director of publicity for
STV. "Everyone learned a lot about put
ting together a television program, but we
need student support to keep our pro
Although the program did have several
picture and sound problems, Walt Boyle,
STV director of production, said the
show would be cleaned up in the future.
When an artist reasons, it's
tion's history," Hart said, his voice
hoarse from the rigors of campaigning.
"It's not against Ronald Reagan, but new
ideas versus the failed policies of the past.
"It's not a contest between Gary Hart
and Walter Mondale, it's a contest be
tween the future of the Democratic Party
and the past."
Hart was in North Carolina to cam
paign for the May 8 primary. He made
appearances earlier in the day in Texas,

this nation in education, research and
Concentrating on education, an issue
that has been a mainstay in recent na
tional and state politics, Hart said the
Democratic Party "must become a party
of education and training." He said cuts
in funds ranging from school lunches to
financial aid must be restored. And the
opportunities for students going onto col
lege must be expanded.
Hart, who visited North Carolina and
spoke at UNC last spring, was asked
about returning to the University. "I
have made a particular effort to re
involve young people in politics," he
said, adding that the ideas he has been
talking about in his campaign are issues
young people care about.
Having lost important primaries in Il
linois, New York and Pennsylvania dur
ing the past month, Hart said the Demo
cratic Party must do better in the West
and South if it wants to win in the general
election. "We can't rely on traditional
strongholds in the Northeast and in
dustrial Midwest. The Democratic Party
has to go beyond its traditional agenda.
"We must abandon Democratic poli
cies of the past. To make the economy
grow we must abandon policies of han
douts and bailouts," he said.
Hart said the federal tobacco program
was not a bailout program. But the na
tion's farmers require some kind of pre
dictability to survive, he said.
Hart also attacked politics based on
special interests, especially : Mondale's
labor ties. "I believe the people of North
Carolina want a candidate free of that in
terest," Hart said.
The program lasted approximately 45
minutes, and covered the types of
organizations which will be represented in
future shows, Wilson said.
Lefler said students were the primary
reason for having STV. "We hope
everybody will like it. STV offers a lot for
everyone," she said.
Both Wilson and Lefler expressed
disappointment about the funds allocated
to STV from the Campus Governing
Council budget, but said they were
satisfied under the circumstances. "They
(CGQ did what they thought they had to
do," Wilson said. Lefler said STV would
have to work on a tight budget, but the
quality of programming shouldn't be af
fected. She said several students have ex
pressed interest in working on STV, and
urged more to come by the STV office in
The student turnout at Mr. Gattis, one
bar which aired the show, was the best of
all viewing locations. The majority of the
100 people in Gattis seemed to enjoy the
show, but others had a different opinion.

The Colorado senator continued the
strategy he adopted after losing the New
York primary two weeks ago of staying
away from a verbal war with opponent
Walter Mondale. Instead, he focused his
attacks on President Reagan.

Game stopped with UNC ahead, 2-0; Bankhead fans 1 4
By LEE ROBERTS
. No one could have stopped North
Carolina pitcher Scott Bankhead from
getting his ACC tournament-record 15th
strikeout of the game Thursday night at
Durham Athletic Park.
No one, except for Mother Nature.
Rain stopped play of the North
Carolina-Maryland game in the bottom
of the sixth innmg with UNC holding a
2-0 lead, and stopping a pitching perfor

would have beaten Clemson pitcher Ron
Musselman's record set in 1977.

RALEIGH The Rev. Jesse Jackson,
on a campaign visit to the state Thursday,
called for an immediate and comprehen
sive investigation into the shooting of a
U.S. Army helicopter in Honduras
, Jackson said the ' downing of the '
helicopter in which f Sen. Lawton
Chiles, D-Fla., Sen. J. Bennett Johnston,
D-La., and the five others aboard were
unharmed truly shows the deplorable
state of affairs in Central America.
Jackson, a Democratic presidential can
didate, said at a morning news conference
:at Raleigh-Durham Airport that the
Reagan administration's involvement in
Central America has increased tensions in
' the region.
"If this administration would have
created an atmosphere through negotia
tions and political stability through
economic development, Tuesday's inci
dent might never have occurred,"
Jackson said. "However, since this ad
ministration has refused to follow the
path of peace, then others of us must take
up the challenge of following the path to
peace. That is the message of this cam
paign." Jackson said the state of North
Carolina fits in well with his "Rainbow
Coalition" of supporters.
"We had North Carolina in mind when
we formed the Rainbow Coalition,"
Jackson said, adding that the coalition
sought to expand and heal the
"It is a political movement designed to
take us from racial battleground to
economic common ground and higher
moral ground," he said. "It is time to
forgive each other, redeem each other,
regroup and move on."
Jackson's visit to the state was a
prelude to the May 8 North Carolina
presidential primary. He also campaigned
Thursday in Henderson, Oxford and
other cities and towns in the eastern part
of the state. Jackson spoke at his alma
mater, N.C. A&T University in
Greensboro, on Wednesday.
The Missouri caucuses Wednesday left
Jackson with a total of 166.2 delegates to
the Democratic National Convention.
Walter Mondale has 1,130.8 of the 1,967
delegates needed for nomination, while
Gary Hart has 624.

Brooks, Kevin Johnstone, Jeff
Bengston and Chris Stark, the Ter
rapins' six-through-nine hitters, went
0-for-8 with eight strikeouts.
"I was pumped up because it was the
tourney," Bankhead said. "My fastball
was working well tonight, along with
my breaking pitches. I felt like whenever
I really needed a strikeout, I could throw
it by them."
While Bankhead was blowing away
the Terrapin hitters, UNC batters could
only muster two runs off Maryland's

Jackson also proposed going in a new
direction to end hunger and to save the
small farmer. He said that many small
farmers are starving and must be helped.
The Democratic hopeful advocated
that the U.S. military budget be cut by at
least 20 percent, without cutting down on
U.S. defense. "I'm for a strong defense,
but I'm not for the waste."
Jackson said the money from military
cuts must go to the civilian sector of our
economy, adding that $1 billion in the
civilian economy would create 9,000
more jobs than the same billion in the
On the area of foreign policy, Jackson
said his adminstration would not be in
vading countries like Grenada nor sen
ding forces to places such as Lebanon
when U.S. security was not threatened.
He also said his administration would be
involved in arms reductions talks with the
"A Jackson administration would be
engaged in negotiations with the Soviet
Union to freeze and reverse the nuclear
arms race and save the human race not
engaging the Soviets with nuclear
threats," he said.
When asked how he expected to finish
in the North Carolina presidential
primary, Jackson said he anticipated a
strong showing. -
"We have fared well everywhere. I ex
pect us to fare well here," Jackson said.
He added that since his campaign had
impressive showings in Virginia and
South Carolina, North Carolina was
caught in a "squeeze play" to have an im
pressive showing also.
Jackson said the quest for the
Democratic presidential nomination was
still very much a three-person race, and
that he didn't expect any of the three can
didates to win . the first .vote at the
Democratic National Convention.
Weiss drilled a run-scoring single and
after Jeff Hubbard was hit by a pitch,
Wednesday's hero Todd Wilkinson
doubled to score Weiss for the 2-0 edge.
With two Tar Heels on base, one out
and a 1-1 count on Mitch McCleney, the
rains came for the final time. After a one
hour and 28-minute delay, Rountree
North Carolina coach Mike Roberts
was less than pleased with Maryland
coach Jack Jackson's request that the
tarp be put on the field. Roberts saw it
as a ploy to get Bankhead out of the
game with Maryland down only 2-0.
