An anti-apartheid rally in the Pit at noon
today is another sign that UNC students are
refueling their efforts to protest the University's
investments in South Africa.
Apartheid is a political policy that dictates
segregation between Europeans and non
Europeans in South Africa, said Roberta A.
Dunbar, associate professor of Afro-American
"Apartheid refers to the whole notion that
you organize society in such a way to keep the
races apart," she said. "It has been manifested
in laws about marriage, jobs and residence. It
controls every conceivable part of your life."
Student government is working on a policy
statement regarding apartheid, said Ray
Wallington, executive assistant to Student Body
President Patricia Wallace.
"Student Government is working in cooper
ation with the Anti-Apartheid Support Group
on campus to make a statement," said Walling
ton. "We plan to have teach-ins and forums
which we hope will end up with students voting
on a referendum and the University divesting

HILLSBOROUGH A jury of 1 1 women and one man
deliberated about three hours Thursday without reaching
a verdict in the trial of Alton Eugene Harris Jr., who is
charged with the first-degree murder and attempted rape
of a UNC student March 16.
Harris, 20v of 801 Estes Drive, was arrested March 17
and charged with the stabbing death of sophomore Freshteh
Golkho at J-l Royal Park Apartments, Carrboro.
The jury began deliberations about 2 p.m. and returned
some 35 minutes later to have Judge Edwin S. Preston review
the legal definitions of first- and second-degree murder and
first- and second-degree rape.
When the jury returned to the courtroom at 5 p.m., the
jury foreman said the jury was making progress, but they
were not likely to reach a verdict by 6 p.m. Preston allowed
the jury to leave and said deliberations would resume today
at 9 a. m. in Orange County Superior Court.
In his closing argument Thursday morning, District
Attorney Carl Fox said Harris should be convicted of both
charges. Fox ridiculed Harris' statement, presented in court :
Wednesday, in which Harris contended Golkho accidentally
ran into the knife.
According to testimony Wednesday from N.C. Chief
Medical Examiner Page Hudson, Golkho was stabbed about
18 times in the arms and chest.
Since Golkho's body, found by Carrboro police, was
clothed only in a tank top and socks, Fox said Harris
probably tried to rape her.
Defense attorneys presented no testimony or witnesses after
Fox rested the state's case Wednesday.
J. Kirk Osborn, Harris' attorney, said in his closing
argument Thursday that Harris was guilty of second-degree
murder or involuntary manslaughter.
Osborn said Harris had no motive for killing Golkho and
would have brought a weapon with him to the apartment
if the murder had been premeditated, rather than having
used a knife from the apartment kitchen. The blood-covered
knife was found near Golkho's body.
If convicted of first-degree murder, Harris would face a
sentencing hearing to determine if he should be sentenced
to death or life imprisonment. ,
Harris, who has remained in Orange County Jail since
his arrest and was present at the trial, did not testify.
The prosecution presented evidence Wednesday which
included testimony from State Bureau of Investigation agent
Jed Taub, who said that blood found on Harris' jacket and
pants was consistent with blood samples from Golkho.,
Samples from the crime scene showed no evidence of
Harris' hair, sperm or semen on Golkho's body, SBI forensics
experts testified Wednesday.
Police also found a rear bedroom window open in the
apartment, blood on the curtains, and the bent screen on
the ground below.
Golkho's sweatpants, panties and a green camouflage
wallet containing an identification card for Harris were found
near her body.
Loretta Petty, one of Golkho's roommates, had been dating
Harris at the time of Golkho's death.
Golkho, a native of Tehran, Iran, lived in Jacksonville
for about 10 years before attending UNC. Golkho's parents,
sister and aunt were among family members at the trial.
'If you asked students on this campus if apar
theid is wrong, an overwhelming majority
would agree (it) is wrong.' Ray Wallington
UNC students are finally getting interested in
apartheid, Wallington said.
"We are way behind the times," he said. "If
you asked students on this campus if apartheid
is wrong, an overwhelming majority would agree
apartheid is wrong. But students don't know
enough about possible measures to change
apartheid, and they don't feel they can do
anything. That's where apathy comes in."
Wallington said education was the way to
make more students aware of what an apartheid
policy means to blacks in South Africa.
"One of the things weVe done is putting up
the little pieces of paper that have 'White Only'
and 'Black Only' in Davis," he said. "A lot of
students felt it was uncalled for and tacky, but
if that really upsets you, then it serves a purpose,
because that's what's going on in South Africa."
One way to protest apartheid that has long
been suggested is divestment, which is the
withdrawal of funds from the public and private
sectors of South Africa. But student efforts to
get the University's Board of Trustees to divest
UNC endowment funds have failed.,
The BOT is in charge of investing endowment
funds, which they do through two boards: the
endowment fund board and the UNC
Clint Newton, chairman of the BOT, esti
mated that the endowment fund consisted of
$98 million and the UNC foundation consisted
of $16 million. T
George Gamble, associate director of the
Campus Y, said a group encouraged the BOT
to make a statement about investment policy
in February 1983.
"Our major thrust was to get the endowment
board to make a policy on socially responsible
investments," Gamble said. "While we had a
purposeful interest in South Africa, that was
not the sole interest."
In April of that year, the BOT said it would
not change its investment policy, Gamble said.
"The response in April was that the Campus
Y could take its money out of endowment, which
was about $60,000 at the time, or have it treated
special by the endowment board by guidelines
we supply," he said. r
The N.C. General Statutes state: "The trustees
of the endowment funds shall be responsible for
the prudent investment of the fund in the exercise
of their sound discretion . . . ."
Wallington said that in the past, the words
"prudent investment" have been interpreted to
mean making investments which return the
highest yield or interest, one reason the BOT
has hesitated to divest their funds.
Wallington said other investment policies were
available to the University.
"There are alternate portfolios available from
investment firms that are being used by . other
colleges that yield as much or even more than
what they previously had," he said. "I don't see
any reason why they can't divest."
Clint Newton, chairman of the BOT, said the
endowment board invested its money according
to the Sullivan principles.
The Sullivan principles are ways South
African businesses improve the conditions of
blacks within their businesses, Dunbar said. -
"It was set up about 10 years ago by a black
minister, Leon Sullivan, who proposed that you
get corporations to sign principles ending
segregation and encouraging recruitment and
job training of African workers," she said. "The
businesses will undertake to improve the
conditions of blacks in their plants. They have
no jurisdiction outside of that."
Newton said he and the BOT were very open
to students' views. "We are very open-minded
to students' causes and suggestions," Newton
said. "I am very strongly for divestment." .
Wallington said Student Government would
try to present a policy statement to the BOT
later in the year.

Some students have expressed con
cern about how a Black Cultural Center
would benefit the University population
as a whole and have expressed support
for establishing a Minority Cultural
Establishing an MCC is important to
Lorraine Gibson, a member of the
Carolina Indian Circle. She said making
a center just for blacks was discrimi
natory toward other minorities.
"I think Indian culture is very
important," she said. "It is a forerunner
compared to others. There are a lot of
Indians still living in the traditional
ways living on reservations and living
off the land' she said. " - - -
Gibson said an editorial appeared in
The Daily Tar Heel which stated that
while others were regrettably ignored,
blacks were discriminated against.
"That was pure ignorance on his (the
editorial writer's) part," she said.
"Indians are still discriminated against.
They're still living on reservations. At
this moment, a law is being passed
which says that 10,000 Hopi and Navajo
Indians are going to be relocated in
1986. It's not like they have houses or
cars, yet this is being accepted. I think
it's equivalent to slavery They (the
government) are still taking their (the
Gibson said the editorial was correct
in saying other minorities were ignored,
but "they are so much ignored that
people don't notice the discrimination."
Gibson said she could support the
idea of an MCC where displays would
be changed, as is done in the Union
Nhi Lan Le, a junior business major
born in Viet Nam, said whether the
University needed an MCC depended
on the purpose of a BCC.
"If it is to bring in more blacks as
compared to whites, an MCC would
bring up the minority balance as a
whole," she said. "If it would promote
more minority groups it would be
effective. Blacks compose a greater
percentage of the student body, but an
MCC would bring up the total minority
There are about 460 foreign students
from more than 70 countries enrolled
at UNC this semester. There are about
Steve Bennett, adviser for interna
tional students, said, "I don't think it's
a major issue for foreign students. A
significant majority of foreign students
are graduate students who wouldn't use
this type of center if it did exist."
Foreign students don't usually think
of themselves in a coalition of minority
students, he said.
"The question would be, 'Would they
see that as something that would
address the needs that they would have?
And I don't see that," he said.
Dawn Mantrone, president of the
Association of International Students,
said, "It would be good for other
minority groups to become part, of a
cultural center. In the description I read,
the BCC would be a learning experience
in a less formal environment."
A center would eliminate the need
for students to go to geography classes
to learn what happens around them, she
"There is an interest in the black
community for such a center, and I
suppose that if there was an interest in
the other minority groups, then I'd say
why not have an MCC," she said. "But
I don't want it to defeat the purpose
of a BCC. . , (Establishing an MCC)
would be seen as a way to lessen the
objections (to a BCC) on campus. I
don't agree with the objections that have
come forward that it would worsen
black white relations."
The next minority group to come to
mind is the Native American Indians,
"I guess it's difficult to give a true
portrayal of their cultures without
making it commercialized or triv
ialized," she said.
Sibby Anderson, BCC steering com
mittee member, said students with
questions should call the office of
"The BCC committee is one formed
by the University to focus on black
culture. If you look at the population
of North Carolina, the number of blacks
as a minority is greater than that of
other minority groups," she said. "You
have to look at other populations and
decide which you are going to put more

"They wanted to stay small, but
they kind of got too small," said
president Jack Rohrer.
Rohrer said the fraternity had
been waiting for a good time to
return to UNC.
"Right now, fraternities are going
through a big uplift," he said. "The
Greek system around the country has
been on a giant upswing."
The fraternity now has 35
members, he said.
To obtain the new charter, the
fraternity had to fulfill 18 require
ments, Rohrer said.
"We had to come up with a set
of bylaws; we had to have an alumni
function; we had to do a community
service, a fundraiser, and a chapter
retreat to another school," he said.
Other requirements included a
membership of at least 20, a set
policy of membership selection, ,
existence at the school for at least
six months, and a minimum grade
point average of 2.56, he said.
Although Phi Kappa Sigma is a

The Carolina Union Activities Board will kick off
University Day celebrations a day early with a
campus-wide extravaganza today from 7 p.m. until
1 a.m. in the Pit and the Student Union.
The party will be both a culmination of Student
Arts Week and a celebration of the University's 192nd
birthday, said Walt Boyle, president of the Carolina
Union Activities Board.
The festivities will begin with a pep rally in the
Pit for Saturday's game.
Thirty different activities coordinated by the 10
committees of the activities board will occur
simultaneously in the upstairs and main lobbies, the
old Fastbreak area, the first floor gallery and the
downstairs area of the Student Union.
David Zubkoff, chairman of the Union's public
relations committee, said, "We want people to find
out where they fit in at the Union and lock into it."
, This theme is represented by the puzzle pieces that
decorate posters advertising the party and on T-shirts
commemorating the event, Boyle said.
The Connells, The Graphic and Plair will provide
musical entertainment in the Great Hall. Jazz artist
Eve Cornelious and a blue-grass band will perform
in the old Fastbreak area, which will be transformed
into a nightclub.
WXYC will broadcast live The Connells and The
Graphic, Boyle said. The Graphic, with lead singer
Treva Spontaine, has performed with such acts as
Duran Duran, the Psychedelic Furs, and Let's Active,
Boyle said contests of all types would be held
throughout the evening. Prizes, including T-shirts,
movie passes, Union box office gift certificates and
buttons, will be given away all night, he said. In
addition, hot dogs, soft drinks and commemorative
T-shirts will be sold on the main floor.
Students can bring beer and wine to the party, Boyle
said. ID's will be checked at the door, and students
of legal age will be given a specified wrist band. Canned
beverages are preferred, he said.
Boyle said the activities board tried to get quality
entertainment at affordable prices, but he said he
didn't know how much the party would cost. Student
activities fees fund the Carolina Union.
"We're slapping the campus in the face saying, 'Hey,
we're (the activities board), and we can show you
a good time. "
The activities will be:
