Helms, Cobey speak
about moral issues
By TOM CONLON
ARLINGTON. Va. North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms
and Rep. Bill Cobey addressed the first annual national
convention of Students for America, calling for a strong
national defense and an end to legalized abortions.
Eight UNC students attended the convention and senior
David Fazio was elected 1 985 national chairman by a national
delegation. The four-day event included speeches by the Rev.
Jerry Falwell, U.N. Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick. Eagle
Forum president and anti-ERA activist Phyllis Schlafly,
Georgia Republican Reps. Newt Gingrich and Pat. Swindell:
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Cal. and Rep. Phil Crane, R-Ul.,
a 1980 presidential candidate.
The conference included a youth function at Washington
D.C.'s Constitution Hall featuring Vice President George
Bush and other speakers. Panel discussions, a Super Bowl
party and a platform convention were also held at the
Westpark Hotel. Inauguration activities were scheduled but
did not take place because of the cancellation of the outdoor
inaugural speech and parade.
Helms, who made an unexpected visit, praised the students
for their courage to stand behind conservative convictions
and spoke on political upheavals in Central America.
Helms said his effort to get conservatives to purchase stock
in CBS "has the national media living on a diet of chewed
fingernails.' He declined to give exact figures because of
potential lawsuits but said it was going well and that he
had already received positive response before the letters had
been sent out because of a news leak by the Raleigh News
Cobey said he was overcoming some difficulties since
recently being elected to Congress and that God was helping
him work things out. His speech focused on abortion, and
he called for an end to legalized abortion, urging students
to march in todav's Right For Life march in Washington.
"I'm gonna be in that march, and I welcome you to join
me." Cobey said. I'm gonna march and march and march
until this holocaust ceases to exist in our country because
if we don't stop it, we're going to lose our freedom."

Special to the DTH
In November, after eight years as'
governor, Jim Hunt lost his U.S. Senate
bid to incumbent Jesse Helms. Hunt
was lieutenant governor from 1973 to
1977 and the states first two-term
governor. On Jan. 5, he left the
Executive Mansion to return to the
practice of law. The 47-year-old Wilson
resident commutes daily to Raleigh,
where he is a partner in the law firm
Spruill and Spruill. Says a friend. "He
is laying low for awhile. "
Folowing is the last in a three-part
series. Wharton and King, a 1984 UNC
journalism graduate, talked with state
and national political observers last
week about Hunt 's gubernatorial tenure
and his future political prospects.
He is self-assured, business-like and
always in command, but one political
observer said he believed in himself too
"Jim Hunt says to himself, 'I'm a
winner, I'm so strong nobody can beat
me, " this observer commented. "With
his Senate campaign he thought, We're
going to take it to the people and they'll
love it.' "
As with many powerful political
figures, there's always controversy.
Some think Jim Hunt was the best N.C.
governor of the 20th century. Others
think he is a backhanded machine
Those two viewpoints leave Jim

Food kitchen may be

The Community Kitchen in Car
rboro, which provides hot meals for 40
to 50 needy people each weekday, may
serve its last meal March 15 unless it
finds a new home.
The Mt. Olivett Lodge of the Masons
has asked the kitchen to move from the
Masons' lodge on the corner of Sunset
and Rosemary streets by March 15. The
Masons' trustee board has agreed to
meet with the kitchen's board of
directors Feb. 5 for possible
The Masons have allowed the kitchen
to use the building rent-free since
November 1983. The oral agreement
between the Masons and the kitchen
was that the kitchen pay 80 percent of
the building's utilities.
In spite of the Feb. 5 meeting, the
Masons "have just about decided to ask
them to leave," said Clifton Stone,
coordinator of the Masonic lodge.
The biggest problem with housing the
kitchen is that its supplies often get in
the way of groups that meet there. Stone
said. "We feel uncomfortable working
around their things," he said, "and there

"Hunt made signficant, often enlight

and economic growth." said William D.
Snider, former editor of the Greensboro
News and Record and author of an
upcoming book on Hunt's Senate race.
"Those have always been the two sacred
cows in N.C. politics."
"Hunt's major accomplishment is
first and foremost his committment to
education and obvious placing of that
as his top priority. Education is the
thread that ran through his administra
tion," said Craig Phillips. State Super

The kitchen's patrons, who are not
supposed to be at the building after 8
p.m., sometimes come there at night and
disrupt other groups' meetings. Stone
said. "They feel that whenever the doors
are open, they belong there," he said.
Mary Lycan, a kitchen volunteer in
charge of inventory, and volunteer
Grace Higgs, both stressed that the fate
of the kitchen was totally in the hands
of the Masons. "We plan to do anything
they want if they will let us continue
here," Higgs said, including paying rent,
accepting restrictions on the building's
use and operating on a trial basis in

According to Lycan, the Masons feel
they have lost control of their property.
"The honeymoon period is over," she
said. "The reaction of the Masons (to
the kitchen's clients) is the reaction you
find in every other neighborhood in the
world. People say it's fine as long as
they're inside being fed."

Reagan said the federal government
has often failed in upholding those
' principles, "Over recent years we asked
things of the federal government that
it was not equipped to give," he said.
"We yielded authority to government
that properly belonged at local or state
levels or in the hands of the citizenry.
We allowed taxes and inflation to rob
us of our earnings and savings. We

attributing the close score to Jacksonville's determined play

trying to keep up on the boards with the Tar Heels and
keep the ball away from Daugherty and Martin, who finished
the game with 13 points and a game-high nine rebounds.
The strategy was successful. Jacksonville played tenacious

despite its tallest starter listed at only 6-7. "We had trouble
getting position, and we weren't boxing out well," Daugherty
said. "It's something we really need to work on. We were
