College student activism and votes can be very
important to candidates for state or national offices,
and several N.C. candidates for the 1986 U.S. Senate
election are keeping this in mind.
Five of the 13 candidates for U.S. senate who have
student support groups at UNC are: Republicans Rep.
Jim Broyhill of the I Oth District and David Funder-S
burk. former U.S. Ambassador to Romania; and
Democrats former Gov. Terry Sanford, Mecklenburg
County Commissioner Thomas L. "Fountain" Odom
and former state Insurance Commissioner John
The 10 Democratic candidates and three Republican
candidates are vying for the seat held by Republican
Sen. John East, who is retiring. Their party nomi
nations will be decided in the state primary May 6.
The UNC College Republicans sponsors debates
between candidates and invites speakers to campus but
does not favor one Republican candidate over another,
said Bill Peaslee, chairman of the College Republicans.
"We remain strictly objective," he said. "We play
an impartial role and whoever wins the primary, that's
who well support."
Student support groups for Broyhill are organized
on over 20 state campuses, said Doug Haynes, press
secretary for Broyhill.
The UNC chapter of Students for Broyhill, with a
membership of about 25, had three major projects to
increase student awareness and interest in the primary
elections, said Jimmy Greene, a member of the
At the beginning of the semester, the group
conducted a mock survey of registered N.C. Repub
licans on campus to determine who they would vote
for, if the election were held the next day, he said.
They also worked in cooperation with the Orange
County Republican Party to have Broyhill speak in
January at a luncheon at the Carolina Inn, Greene
said. The group invited student leaders and encouraged
attending students to participate in a question-and-answer
The group also plans to conduct an absentee ballot
drive before the primary. Greene said this would be
an important activity, because many students, busy
with taking exams or going to the beach, would not
vote without it.
A UNC student group of about 20 members also
supports Funderburk, organizer Keith Poston said.
"Basically, weVe tried to identify who Funderburk
is," Poston said. "The press has tried to paint
Funderburk in a dark light, but we want to paint a
The group particularly wants to emphasize that
Funderburk is only 41 years old, he said. "He's young
and really represents what (college students) want him
to represent. He's more in tune to what students think."
Poston said he was confident that Funderburk would
win the primary because of his supporters' activities.
The group has several projects underway, including
plans for Funderburk to speak on campus soon, Poston
said. The members have also planned to set up a table
in the Pit for voter registration and to provide
information about the Republican.
"(These groups) are growing by the week," Pritzer
said. "We get calls from other schools from people
who want to know how they can help."
The group members have several responsibilities,
Pritzer said. On election day and the week before, they
canvass on foot and phone to get people to go out
and vote for Sanford.
"Basically, we're trying to let people in the
community know to get out for Sanford," he said.
Students for Sanford have organized Tuesday's rally
in the Pit in which Sanford will speak and which will
give students the opportunity to ask questions..
"Sanford will tour the state," organizer James
Freeman said. "This will kick off his speeches at other
Most students interested in participating in the
support group on campus for Odom have contacted
his campaign headquarters individually, said John
Siman, Odom's press secretary.
The UNC organization will do advance work for
Odom's speech in the Pit on April 4 and will distribute
information in dormitories and on campus, Siman said.
The support groups do a lot of work on their own,
If elected, Odom plans to establish a college cabinet
consisting of 20 to 24 students from across the state,
Siman said. These students would meet with Odom
twice a year after his nomination to provide him with
- their points of view and feedback on issues, he said.
Democratic candidate Ted Kinney of Fayetteville
is trying to establish his own student support groups
on campuses by contacting student leaders, said David
Dent, Kinney's press secretary.

BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP)
Rampaging Protestant mobs
attacked Roman Catholics and police
in several Northern Ireland towns
Tuesday following a clash in Portadown
between police and hundreds of par
ticipants in a banned march.
Authorities reported that 49 people,
including 13 policemen, were hurt in a
clash between hundreds of youths and
police in Portadown on Monday.
Later, a Protestant mob rampaged
through the center of Portadown, a
town of 14,000 people located 25 miles
southwest of Belfast, smashing store
windows but causing no injuries.
Gunshots were fired at a policeman's
home and at a police station, and
gasoline bombs were thrown at the
homes of two Catholic counselors in

In Lisburn, eight miles southwest of
Belfast, police fired two shots at a car
carrying masked men who were sus
pected of stoning a policeman's house
in nearby Lurgan. Police said two of
the occupants were captured, and one
of them was hospitalized with gunshot
wounds in the leg.
Police in Belfast said cars and buses
were commandeered and set on fire in
dozens of incidents across the city.
Early Monday more than 3,000
people led by fiery Protestant leader
Rev. Ian Paisley staged a three-hour
parade past Portadown's Catholic
neighborhoods in defiance of a ban by
the British government.
"I will defy any .government ban
refusing me the right to walk in any
Protestant town," Paisley declared.
Another 2,000 gathered later in the
day to defy the prohibition on marches,
and 400 to 500 youths threw bricks and
stones at police.
, Police responded by firing about 125
plastic bullets to disperse the crowd,
according to a statement from police
Police said three of the 49 injured
remained hospitalized overnight, but
that the rest were treated and released.
The ban on marches was imposed late
Sunday after the province's police chief,
Sir John Herrrion, advised the govern
ment that "sinister elements had infil
trated and taken control" of the parade,
and it had intended to riot and use
firearms against the security forces.
Scuffles between police and Protest
ant marchers also occurred in Belfast,

Reagan's rejection of weapons
summit draws U.S. criticism
From Associated Press reports
WASHINGTON The chair
man of the House Armed Services
Committee and three former U.S.
arms control negotiators, in an
expression of regret, called President
Reagan's rejection of a proposed
U.S.-Soviet summit on banning
nuclear weapons tests, a missed
opportunity to slow the arms race.
Paul H. Nitze, the president's
senior adviser on arms control, said
American critics were trying to
exploit the administration's position.
Gorbachev had offered to meet
Reagan as soon as possible in a
European capital to negotiate a
nuclear test ban. He said he was
giving the administration one last
chance to halt Soviet underground
nuclear tests, which have been
suspended for seven months. Reagan
turned down Gorbachev's proposal

9 Americans die in Mexican jet
crash, reports say; black box found
POMOC A, Mexico (AP) Search
teams Tuesday removed bodies from
the wreckage of a Mexican jet that
smashed into a mountainside, killing all
166 people aboard. A U.S. Embassy
spokesman said nine U.S. citizens were
on the Mexicana Airlines Boeing 727.
"We can confirm that nine Americans
were on the plane," said U.S. Embassy
spokesman Vincent Hovanec in Mexico
City. He said no identification of the
bodies had been made yet, but reports
from the airline, family and friends were
that nine Americans held tickets for the
flight and "were indeed on the plane."
Officials said the remains of more
than half the victims and the "black
box" flight recorder were recovered.
The jet, en route from Mexico City
to Los Angeles with stops in the Pacific
resorts of Puerto Vallarta and Maza
tlan, hit the 7,792-foot mountain about
90 miles northwest of Mexico City
known locally as El Carbon, shortly
after it took off Monday morning.
"Unfortunately, there are no survi
vors," Mexicana spokesman Fernando
Martinez Cortes said of the 158 pas
sengers and eight crew aboard flight
The cause of the crash is not known,
but Mexicana said the pilot reported
pressurization problems and sought
permission to fly lower shortly before
the plane went down.
Helicopters began taking bodies to
a base camp set up in a field in Pomoca
on Monday. The recovery operation
was suspended at nightfall but resumed
Rescue workers were searching for
bodies, putting the remains in bags on
stretchers and then climbing 1,500 feet
to a ridge near the top of the peak, where
only one helicopter can land at a time.
Ambulances in a small field at
Pomoca took the bodies from the
helicopters to Balbuena Hospital in the
nearby community of Maravatio. From
there, they will go to Morelia, 42 miles
west of the crash, and then to Mexico
Officials working at the base camp
said the remains of what were believed
to be 89 victims had been recovered by
Mexicana in Mexico city said the
black recorder box was recovered
Monday afternoon and would be sent
to the U.S. Federal Aviation Admin
istration for analysis. The black box
contains flight recorders that investiga
tors use to help determine the cause of
a plane crash.
