College Republicans rally at UNC By TOM CONLON Staff Writer 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 efforts. 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 ident Paul Parker announced yesterday.

Recent polls have shown the two candidates to be nearly even. 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 campuses." The Cobey congressional campaign feels its main strength in defeating six term incumbent Ike Andrews is 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. time. Parker said Student Government will know by Nov. 1 whether the SAC will be completed, and a definite location will be set then.

Aristotle By RUTHIE PIPKIN Staff Writer Just two hours before an emergency Campus Governing Council meeting yesterday to approve Honor Court and Attorney General staff members stu dent government officials learned from the Daily Tar Heel the proposed bill was illegal. Amidst the chaos in Suite C, Patricia Wallace, chairman of the Campus Governing Council's Rules and Judi ciary committee, authored two bills proposing the CGC accept the appoint ments although the acceptance would not be legal and would violate the requirements of the CGC bylaws. Neither Student Body President Paul Parker nor Attorney General Keith Johnson was aware of Wallace's bills ROTC enrollment up Military By AMY STYERS Staff Writer 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 Forest Theatre By MIKE ALLEN Staff Writer 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 change." An oral policy con cerning alcohol con sumption existed sev eral years ago, but was changed in the early 1980s to omit Forest Theatre as a place where alcohol could be served. 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 around it," he said. case of rain. Parker said the senior class was considering implementing new features into this year's ceremony, including the possibility of having a speaker who is not directly connected with the Univer sity. MIKE ALLEN or their questionable legality when asked yesterday afternoon. After frenzied conferences and quick checks to uncover the details, Parker and Johnson realized the bills were illegal and decided they should not be brought before the CGC at its 6 p.m. meeting. Wallace's bills did not meet the requirement of approval by a majority of the Rules and Judiciary committee 48 hours prior to CGC approval. Article five, section 4-A of the bylaws states, "No bill or resolution appropriating or transferring funds, amending the con stitution, or approving any Presidential appointments to the executive or judicial offices unless it has been discharged from a standing committee at least 48 hours before council life luring, more youth, survey says Students are also thinking about military service in their early years of high school, RTFs survey reported. More than half the sophomores and juniors in U.S. high schools expect to serve in the armed forces. The high percentages of persons considering the armed forces at an earlier age may be attributed to the uncertainties of career plans at that age, said Vonda Kiplinger, statistician demographer at the Defense Depart ment's Defense Manpower Data Center in Arlington, Va.

The first wave of homeless students was supposed to begin setting up house at Kensington Sept. 7. Students are now being told they will not be able to move in for six to 10 weeks more, according to Natalie Tindol, a sophomore from Gastonia. "They're not moving in because the town of Chapel Hill wont let them," said Diana James, property manager at Kensington. She said some condos are ready for occupancy but Chapel Hill inspectors refuse to give permisssion for anyone to move in. It wouldn't be safe for any resi Delay sought in The Associated Press GREENSBORO A former U.S. Attorney and three FBI agents dis 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. But the former federal prosecutor, 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. The civil rights fund is seeking a seven-month delay in the start of its $40 million lawsuit arising from the Nov. 3, 1979 shooting of five Communist Workers Party members. The fund represents widows of the shooting victims. A motion filed in U.S. Middle ti i ' . : -: ' Xxi:SxS W- : 1 x: S : -x : ISits&S I ; 'MWMiS li --X " s i l f I i - i i I h 1 IxX I t n I T r Jill i I - - - irT; ; M ' ft: meeting." 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 the bylaws. "The way I look at it is this," Wallace said. "It's not establishing a permanent approval. Since it's not establishing a permanent approval, it's not subject to the bylaws." 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 residents still 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 holler the condominiums are ready to move into," he said. The town is only doing what they (Benchmark Atlantic) agreed to do trial arising from District Court on Tuesday asks for a June 1, 1985 trial start, citing what the fund calls new evidence. The trial is now scheduled for Oct. 8 in Winston-Salem. Judge Robert Mehrige was scheduled to convene a hearing Wednesday on another fund motion to gain access to confidential government documents. Joseph Sher of Washington, who is representing the U.S. Justice Depart ment in the suit, said he might ask Mehrige then to order the fund to stop releasing pretrial documents. Fund officials released copies of a deposition Tuesday in which Michaux indicates he met with three local FBI agents, including Thomas Brereton and Andrew Pelczar, a few days before the rally and "talked about the possibility of some trouble" at the CWP-sponsored event. The suit against the City of Greens (384 - 322 B.C.) still have the Honor Court approval for today's court sessions. "I could have just shut up, said they (the bills) had gone by consent and let it be fine and dandy," Wallace said. "I'd rather be out in the open, find my mistakes and take steps to correct them." Rather than go before the CGC, the Rules and Judiciary committee met last night to approve the appointments and will present them to the CGC legally on Sept. 12. As for the Honor Court, the cases will be heard as scheduled by members not yet approved by the CGC. "The bill goes to the CGC on the 12th, and will be done (approved) retroactively, as of the date the cases started," Johnson said. Admissions of veterans could be on the rise. There are no figures out concerning this year's veterans' enrol lment, but Wolslagel said he believes there has been an increase - expecially in the graduate program. The nearing 1989 expiration of the Veterans' Admin istration's Educational Benefits Pro gram serves as a likely encouragement for veterans to consider college, he said. "Recent years have been banner years in recruiting," Kiplinger said of military enlistment admissions. With the declin ing number of eligible persons, she added, times ahead may be difficult for the military. -x 5 i 1 .T-XK-oewi Home?'

"They told me it would be six to 10 weeks ... they ought to give them a more realistic figure; I can't say it will be longer but you ought to just take a look at them (the condos)." Some students are less than satisfied with the continued delays at Kensing ton. "I want to get someplace and stay at least until the semester is over," Michele McCaskill, an Asheville sopho more, said. "I'm just sick of living out of a suitcase.

Fund officials said in a prepared statement they have depositions from Brereton and Pelczar, who deny having had any knowledge that violence would occur at the march. Those depositions were not released at a news conference called by the fund. Michaux said he didn't remember the exact conversation he had with the agents, but that they did not have any strong evidence that violence was a certainty; Sher said he would oppose the justice fund's motion to delay the lawsuit trial. "We're ready," he said. "They've had plenty of time." But fund officials said Michaux's testimony and other new evidence "illustrates the need" for more time. XX. jt
