In keeping with the precedent set
in 1984, North Carolina's Senate
candidates were among the top 15
candidates nationwide in campaign
spending, according to the Federal
Republican Sen. Jim Broyhill
ranked 10th, with $3.9 million, and
Democrat Terry Sanford ranked
15th, spending S3 million.

Israelis feel they are always being
scrutinized by a large international
audience that either expects "a few
daily miracles" or Israel to come
crashing down, a prominent Israeli
author told an audience of about 400
people in Hamilton Hall Wednesday
Amos Oz, author of "In the Land
of Israel," "A Perfect Peace" and
several other novels, greeted the
audience with the traditional Israeli
salutation, "shalom," which means
"peace," as well as "hello" and
"I don't regard the miracle con
sumers as friends and lovers, but I
also don't regard the crash prophets
as enemies," he said.
Oz, who fought in the Six-Day
War of 1967 and the Yom Kippur
War in 1973, is now a leader of the
Peace Now movement in Israel.
Oz said there have been three
turning points in Israel's history: the
Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War
and the invasion of Lebanon.
"The Six-Day War evoked eupho
ria and images of a Jewish John
Wayne," he said. "It evoked an
intoxication with military power."
The Yom Kippur War "marked
the decline of Israel's self-image as
a dazzling success story," he said.
Oz called the invasion of Lebanon
"unjustified." He said it reopened the
argument about the goals of
Zionism, a movement of Jews to
regain and retain Israel.
"Israel isn't a nation or country,"
he said. "It is a fiery collection of
arguments. It is a nation of 4 million
tures. "Across the board, party
money, PAC (political action com
mittee) money and candidate's
money have increased," he said.
Republicans followed their tradi
tional role and spent more than the
Democrats, he said.
But Broyhill's expenditures were
millions below the wealthiest race in
the nation. In California, Republi
can Ed Zschau spent $9.1 million;
his Democratic opponent, incum
bent Alan Cranston, was second in
spending, with $8.6 million.
Sanford spokesman Ed Bristol
said the campaign kept costs down
by cutting corners when necessary.
A small staff, many volunteers and
Oz said sometimes people are
dismayed to find that the people of
Israel are not always unified in their
"One of the significances of having
our own government is that, at long
last, we may conduct family fights
loud and clear," he said. "It's a sign
of a healthy marriage, and who cares
about the neighbors."
Israelis espouse many different
perceptions of Zionism, Oz said. He
said there are "semi-religious social
anarchists," Marxists, ultra
orthodox who came to Israel to
await the Messiah rather than to
establish a state, Polish romanticists,
a veteran Sephardic community.
"There has been a single common
denominator," he said. "(Zionism)
could only be achieved when the
Jews get together on their own piece
of land. That is Zionism in a

have a civil war, despite the

"It is too early to tell, but there
will probably be no money left over,"
Republican Rep. Bill Cobey, who

RALEIGH Emotions ran high
in both camps Wednesday morning
as Republican Sen. Jim Broyhill bid
goodbye to his briefly held Senate
seat and former Democratic Gov.
Terry Sanford celebrated his victory.
The mood was somber at the
Downtown Raleigh Hilton as Broy
hill supporters waited for their
candidate to to arrive. Broyhill, who
said Tuesday night that he would not
give up until all the votes were in,
appeared at 9 a.m. and conceded his
loss by thanking supporters.
"The people have spoken," he said.
"The fact is that he (Sanford) did
get a majority. He did a better job
of getting out the vote than I did."
At Democratic Party Headquar
ters, victory infused the atmosphere.
Sanford was jovial, joking with
reporters during his 10 a.m. news
conference. His easy relationship
with the press is why he won the
election, said press secretary Tom
"There's definitely a difference
between this candidate who likes
dealing with the press and Senator
Broyhill, who is less comfortable
with it," he said. "There's a great
lesson to be learned here."
Broyhill attributed his loss to
being a Republican, which he said
is difficult in North Carolina, and
not campaigning enough.
"Maybe I didn't do as good a job
as I could in getting my message out
. . . maybe I should've gotten out 10
or 12 times a day instead of seven
or eight," he said.
He also said negative campaigning
figured in his defeat. "I felt (San
ford's) ads were distorting my voting
record. I'm not sure this was a
deciding factor, though."
Sanford said he won because he
"got more votes." If he had lost, he
said he would have attributed it to
getting fewer votes.
He also cited support from young
people as very important to the
success of his campaign. "I have
few hours to fix the vehicle, he said.
On Oct. 20, Mercene Karkadou
lias said Silent Sam's restoration was
completed by the beginning of
October. In repairing the figure,
cracks on the interior and exterior
were fixed, green oxidation was
cleaned and a protective wax coating
was placed on the statue, she said.
Bullock said the Karkadouliases
will repair the monument's base
before Silent Sam is re-erected, and
will also restore the Caldwell Mon
ument, an obelisk in McCorkle Place
south of Silent Sam, for $2,300 while
they are in Chapel Hill.
Other than the Karkadouliases,
there are only two restorers in the
United States who could perform the
work Silent Sam needed, Bullock
said. He said the Karkadouliases
were chosen to repair the monument
partly because of their work in North
