Democratic Senate hopeful Thomas
L. "Fountain" Odom visited Chapel Hill
Friday, advocating environmental
protection and an end to deficit
Odom, a Mecklenburg County com
missioner, is one of 10 Democrats vying
for the party's nomination for the seat
held by Republican Sen. John ( East,
who is retiring. (
In an interview, he said environmen
tal protection was a major issue in his
campaign. He said he opposed burying
low-level nuclear waste anywhere
except on the sites where it is produced.
He also said technology is not yet ready
to handle large burial sites.
The Department of Energy is evaluat
ing two North Carolina sites for the
deposit of nuclear waste.
Odom also condemned deficit spend
ing. As Mecklenburg county commis
sioner, he said he has adhered to a pay-as-you-go
budget, in which loans were
not made to cover government pro
grams. The government should only

Thcrn3 L 'Fountsin? Odom
take out loans for long-term capital
improvement projects when a repay
ment plan can be structured into the
budget, he said.
Although Odom said he believed all
federal programs should be cut slightly,
he disliked the Gramm-Rudman
approach to budget-balancing. It is
unconstitutional, and the legislators are
shirking the responsibility of making
difficult decisions, he said.
Budget cuts should be made in
defense spending, although defense
should be kept strong, he said. The
Pentagon should be more efficient in
its contracting and procurement proce
dures, he said. President Reagan's
Strategic Defense Initiative, popularly
known as "Star Wars," receives far too
much funding, he said.
Odom strongly supported federal
student loans. "If someone can do
enough work to pass, he should have
the loan he needs," he said.
At a rally in the Pit sponsored by
the UNC Anti-Apartheid Support
Group, Odom proposed his plan of
"constructive tightening engagement"
to deal with apartheid. The plan would
give the government of South Africa
a limited amount of time to confer
political power to the black majority.
"How can any American who believes
in one man, one vote support a system
of government where a 20 percent
minority rules 80 percent of the pop
ulation?" he asked. Odom said it was
inevitable that the blacks gain political
power in South Africa. The United
States must see to it that this transferal
of power does not result in bloodshed,
Odom is generally considered a long
shot in the Democratic primary. The
Carolina Poll, conducted by the UNC
School of Journalism, found Odom had
2 percent of the Democratic vote in a J
telephone survey from Feb. 23-28.
Odom said his own surveys show him
to have stronger support after a four
week advertising campaign.
Odom has been a Mecklenburg
County Commissioner since 1980. He
was vice chairman of the commission
from 1980 to 1982 and chairman for
the following two years. He graduated
from UNC and the UNC School of
Amistell makes bid for congress out ax reform platform
By KATHY NANUEY
A former social worker and teacher
has challenged incumbent U.S. Rep.
William W. Cobey Jr. for the Repub
lican nomination for the 4th District
Jo Ann Austell said she was a "single
issue candidate" concentrating on tax
reform. Corporations are taking advan
tage of tax breaks and special privileges,
placing too much tax burden on private
businesses and households, she said.
"They get tax breaks denied to the
domestic economy," she said. "We're
seeing the continual erosion of the
household as an economic force."
Austell said she would like to see tax
reforms applying to "lack of legislation
relating to corporate gains."
On tax reform, Austell said she would
like to see a rearrangement of federal
budget priorities. She is opposed to the
balancing legislation, she said.
"I haven't seen it yet, but from what
IVe heard and read, specific industries,
demographic -groups, have been tar
geted for cuts," she said.
Austell said the differences between
she and Cobey were more positional
"Mr. Cobey has gone a little bit heavy
on the side of financing special inter
ests," she said. "But I do believe there
is enough difference to warrant com
petition in a primary.
"I would imagine my views in terms
of foreign policy would be more

SAN FRANCISCO - Federal
agents joined the investigation
Sunday of an explosion and fire that
destroyed an industrial complex,

Fire officials said 7 million gallons
of water was sprayed onto the fire
that injured at least 20 people Friday
and left the three-story Bayview
Industrial Park a pile pf charred
debris.. Water stood up to five feet
deep in parts of a basement area that
had been underneath the complex.
