rally at UNC
By TOM CONLON
The future of the United States is
riding on the election of President
Reagan and U.S. Senator Jesse Helms,
R-N.C, and the efforts of UNC's
students could make the difference, the
Helms for Senate statewide youth
coordinator told a crowd of 120
attending the first UNC College Repub
licans meeting Tuesday night.
"I hope everyone realizes what's at
stake this year our national future
is riding on the line with Reagan and
Helms, Alan Williams said, encourag
ing UNC Republicans to turn out the
student vote for a Reagan-Helms
victory in November. He added that
over 10 percent of the student body at
Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory had
signed up to help the Reagan-Bush and
Helms has a formidable foe the
large-city media of this state," Williams
said. "But he has one thing going for
him he is calling the shots in this
state. (N.C. Gov.) Jim Hunt can run
60 ads in one week and his polls dont
go up or down. Jesse Helms is in charge
of this campaign and that's what affects
the polls. UNC's help will make an
incredible impact in this state."
Williams also denounced the media
polls as incorrectly predicting the
outcome of the election.
"In 1972 and 1978, Helms trailed in
the polls but won both times," he said.
"It's a very good sign that Helms is neck-in-neck
with Hunt. Let's make noise on
campus and let people know who we're
for fight the liberals!"
"The liberals have tried to paint Jesse
as ineffective, but Sen. Helms, without
a doubt, has tremendous impact on
Capitol Hill," he said. "Jesse Helms is
known to be a gentleman and stands
for what he believes in; Jim Hunt does
not stand for what he believes in, but
what his special interests believe in
and changes with them."
Commencement will be held in SAC
Commencement ceremonies for the
Class of 1985 will be held Sunday, May
12 at 10:30 a.m., Student Body Pres

Hunt is seeking to unseat two-term
incumbent Helms in a race which is
regarded as a toss-up and seen by some
as second in importance only to the
presidential race this fall. Recent polls
have shown the two candidates to be
Williams also accused Hunt that he
will make a political, rather than a
personal, decision on whether to grant
clemency to Velma Barfield, who has
been convicted of poisoning and killing
her fiance. Her execution is set for Nov.
2, four days before the election.
Other speakers on behalf of Repub
lican candidates included Bill Ross of
Youth for Reagan-Bush; David Balmer,
Martin for Governor statewide youth
chairman, and Steve Long, Cobey for
Congress press secretary and former
UNC College Republicans president.
Charlotte area Congressman Jim
Martin, facing a tough race against N.C.
Attorney General Rufus Edmisten for
the governorship, is doing well at the
University, Balmer said. "In a campus
poll with 3,900 students during regis
tration, 39 percent of the students said
they were for Martin and 29 percent
for Edmisten with the rest unde
cided," he said. "Those results are better
than those at other major statewide

Andrews' poor voting record.
"Andrews voted only 68 percent of
the time between June and July of this
year the lowest of seven of his 11
years in Congress," Long said. "Polls
show Cobey's, race to be winnable, and
I expect by October well be in the lead."
College Republican chairman Ray
Shimer and vice chairman Mike Barn
hill urged students to participate in
campaigns and register to vote.
Students were also urged to attend
a Reagan-Bush youth rally at Wake
Forest University on Sept. 10.
Parker said Student Government will
know by Nov. 1 whether the SAC will
be completed, and a definite location
will be set then. If the complex is not
finished, commencement activities will

ROTC enrollment up
By AMY STYERS
Life in the military appears to be
more and more attractive to young men
and women, according to the increasing
ROTC enrollment at UNC and a recent
survey of high-school students by North
Carolina's Research Triangle Institute.
UNC's ROTC program has been
experiencing a gradual growth over the
past few years, said Commandant of
Cadets Maj. David Mills, assistant
professor in aerospace studies. Students
are more mature, making career deci
sions earlier in their life and are
recognizing the benefits of military
training, he said.
No alcohol in
By MIKE ALLEN
The Forest Theatre has been omitted
from the new campus alcohol policy as
a place where consumption of alcoholic
beverages is allowed, Donald Boulton,
Dean of Student Affairs, said yesterday.
"It was just a simple deletion of the
Forest Theatre. It was just one of those
things where we were in error," Boulton
said. "It's nothing major; there's no real

According to James Cansler, asso
ciate dean of Student Life, an oral policy
concerning alcohol consumption
existed several years ago, but was
changed in the early 1980s omitting
Forest Theatre as a place where alcohol
could be served. "None of us (the
committee) knew the change in policy
had occurred," Boulton said.
The theatre, which is under the
jurisdiction of Farris Womack, vice
chancellor of business and finance, and
Gene Swecker, director of the UNC
Physical Plant, is operated through the
Dramatic Arts Department.
According to Cansler, the matter was
brought forth by the Building and
Grounds Committtee. The addition of
the theatre to the new alcohol policy
was "a fundamental misunderstanding
on my part," Cansler said.
The Dramatic Arts Department has
first priority when the theatre is
concerned, Swecker said. He said the
fact that the theatre is used by area
public and high schools was of legit
imate concern to the committee.
Mike Deimler of the Residence Hall
Association said there were no events
scheduled for the theatre that could not
be rescheduled elsewhere. "It's not too
big a problem that we can't schedule

GREENSBORO A former U.S.

cussed "the possibility of some trouble"
three days before the 1979 anti-Ku Klux
Klan rally that ended with five deaths,
says a motion filed in federal court.

H.M. "Mickey" Michaux, denied
Tuesday the Greensboro Civil Rights
Fund's contention that his conversation
proves that authorities knew there
would be violence at the rally.

When the Rules and Judiciary com
mittee met Monday, Sept. 3 to consider
the appointments, only two of the four
committee members showed up, mak
ing majority approval impossible.
To soften the taint of the bills,
Wallace attached an article stating the
CGC approval would only last until
Oct. 10, when the Rules and Judiciary
committee would present the bills for
permanent approval in accordance with

said. "It's not establishing a permanent

Wallace expressed frustration over
trying to keep within the bylaws and
attract a lot of potential students, Grant
Wolslagel, assistant registrar for vete
rans and certification services at UNC,
said. "It's also peace time."
Sparked interest in military enlist
ment has apparently not affected
admissions at UNC. The enrollment has
dropped only slightly in the past few
years and Tim Sanford, assistant
director of institutional research,
attributed that drop to an administra
tive cap on enrollment. Because of an
unusually large freshman class a few
years ago, the University has tried to
decrease admissions slightly, he said.
200 UNC students hang 'Home Sweet
dents," said John Davis, director of
inspection for the town. "I don't see how
anybody can even go in and out in a
car. It's a mud puddle out there. Diana
James doesn't know what's going on."
Benchmark Atlantic Co., developers
of Kensington Trace, were granted a
special use permit to build the condos,
according to Davis. He said the permit
specified that the condos would be,
completely finished, including lands
caping and parking areas, before his
office allowed students to begin moving
in. While some units may be complete,
many buildings just had roofs added this
week, Davis said. "Still they want to

another fund motion to gain access to

Mehrige then to order the fund to stop
releasing pretrial documents.
Fund officials released copies of a

Admissions of veterans could be on
the rise. There are no figures out

for veterans to consider college, he said.
