Helms tells students main issue is credibility
By TOM CONLON
RALEIGH Credibility is the No. 1 issue in North
Carolina's U.S. Senate campaign, incumbent Sen.
Jesse Helms told 350 North Carolina students at
Meredith College's Weatherspoon Gymnasium
Helms, who spoke at the statewide youth rally, said
up until the last few weeks he could find no single
major issue in the campaign. Democratic Gov. Jim
Hunt is challenging Helms for his senate seat.
"When I came home from Washington and heard
the governor's distortions, falsehoods and personal
attacks the single issue became clear," Helms said.
"The issue is credibility who will tell you the truth?
. "Here's a man who says he's a great conservative
but added $4 million to the state budget," Helms said.
"He's said he's balaned the budget all eight years he's
been governor . . . but did it by borrowing money
from the federal government and we don't need
any more of them in Washington.
"The governor also took credit for the passage of
the state balanced budget amendment, but one of the
newspapers down East checked up on it . . . and they
found that all he did was agree not to oppose the
constitutional amendment he did nothing to push
for the amendment. So for eight years he's worked
under a state law requiring a balanced state budget."
Helms also accused Hunt of distorting the social
security issue and added that "next year I'm going
to push through the Senate and Congress an
amendment giving every retiree a written agreement
that their social security benefits will not be reduced."
He said Peter Hart, a political concultant to Jim Hunt
and presidential candidate Walter Mondale, admitted
"sure we demagogued it" regarding the Social Security
Charges linking Helms to right-wing organizations
have also been Hunt's favorite tactic against him,
Helms said. "I'm proud of the people in this country
who have stood up for the principles of morality and
free enterprise," he said. "Ill be glad to discuss publicly
my associations if he's willing to discuss his."
Helms also praised President Reagan and urged
full support for the president in the Nov. 6 elections.
Also speaking at the rally were Jim Kane, statewide
youth coordinator for Helms' 1978 Senate campaign,
and Norman Blackwell, a well-known political
analyst. Both said elections are not won only on who's
right on the issues but by who has the best organization
in a campaign.
Prior to the rally, four hecklers entered the
gymnasium with signs reading "End the embarrass
ment" and "Stupid Rednecks for Jesse." The partisan
crowd jeered and surrounded the hecklers who were
shortly escorted outside by campus police. Students
then chanted "Jesse Helms is a hero, Jim Hunt is
Gilbert Waldron, UNC co-chairperson of Students
for Helms, said about 30 students came from UNC
and that campus canvassing has shown a solid support
for Helms among students. "We estimate that about
40 percent of those students who are registered to
vote will support Helms," he said.
Course offered to help students select majors, careers
By KATHY NANNEY
For UNC students trying to choose
a major and career, the School of
Education is offering a course next
semester that may help.
The class, called career exploration,
is designed for freshmen and sopho
mores who want to explore options and
choose a career field, said Pat Carpen
ter, associate director of business
placement at UNC Career Placement
and Planning Services. It takes students
through a decision-making process in
which they discover career-related
interests and explore job opportunities.
Students learn job-seeking skills and are
taught to plan their school curriculum
and summer job experiences to enhance
their future job opportunities, she said.
Students who have already selected
a major will also benefit from the
course. In most majors, there are many
career options available which need to
be explored, Carpenter said.
"This (course) is not just for choosing
a major," said Peggy McAllister, a
career planning counselor and one of
two teachers for the class. "You go from
learning about yourself and what you'd
be good at to what's out there in the
career world." Instead of bringing
information to the students, the course
shows them how to go about finding
it for themselves. It mixes lectures with
group exercises and the homework
consists of researching the student's
individual job interests, she said.
The course was offered before and
focused on careers for liberal arts
majors, McAllister said. A new format
allows students in technical fields to
take the course. Also, the course is
offered for the first time through the
School of Education, which can provide
The class is listed as . Education 3 1
.and is a pass-fail course with one hour
of credit. It will meet once a week, on
Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. until 12:15
p.m.. Students can preregister for it
through their advisers.

Hinckley papers buttressed
From Associated Press reports
' DURHAM Notes allegedly
written by John Hinckley Jr., saying
he was involved in a conspriacy to
kill Jimmy Carter and Ronald,
Reagan, gained some weight in light
of plots later uncovered, The Dur
han: Morning Herald said yesterday.
The newspaper said it had copies
of notes Hinckley wrote at the
Federal Correctional Institute at
Butner before he was found innocnet
by reason of insanity in the 1981
snooting of President Reagan. It
quoted Hinckley as saying he knew
of plots that would make the assas
sination of President John F.
Kennedy "look like child's play" and
hinting bombs would be used some
time in September.
On Sept. 8, 1981, federal officials
said, Palestinian extremists hid
plastic explosives and remote
controlled detonators in a Washing
ton suburb in preparation for a
September meeting at the White
House between President Reagan
and Israeli Prime Minister Mena
chem Begin. Authorities said the
plan was aborted and not discovered
until eight months later. The Herald
said it was unable to determine
whether Hinckley was involved or
made a lucky guess.
CBS claim questioned
NEW YORK A former military
intelligence chief testified yesterday
that concern about press reaction did
evjs m DuIgj
not affect the way enemy troop
strength was estimated in the Viet
nam War, disputing a CBS docu
mentary that led to Gen. William C.
Westmoreland's' S i 20 million libel
suit against the network.
Maj. Gen. Chesley Peterson,
formerly in charge of military intel
ligence in the Pacific command,
continued his testimony in West
moreland's suit over the January
1983 documentary, "The Uncounted
Enemy: A Vietnam rwntion."
Westmoreland says the program
contended wrongly that he tried to
suppress truthful reports about
enemy strength to give the impres
sion the war could be won.
Asked if public relations concerns
affected the way intelligence was
interpreted, he answered, "not in my
area, in the intelligence area."
State unemployment rises
RALEIGH North Carolina's
jobless rate climbed slightly in
September to 6.3 percent, but the
chairman of the Employment Secur
ity Commission calls the modest
change "relatively insignificant."
The jobless rate for August was
6.1 percent, or 187,800 people out
of work. The September figure
represents a total of 193,600 people
