But Super Tuesday may not have the strong impact its designers hoped it would for three reasons: n earlier contests in Iowa and New Hampshire mean presidential candi dates will spend more time and money there than in the South; a voter turnout will be low because the presidential primary will Marines From Associated Press reports WASHINGTON The Marine Corps, cooperating with the State Department, said Monday it has agreed to replace all 28 security guards at the U.S. Emabassy in Moscow with other Marines as a special precaution. The move follows the disclosure that two former guards are suspected of repeatedly allowing Soviet agents in the embassy late at night in what has been called a critical breach of security.

The candidate would have to to replace former guards suspected of espion age, was reduced in rank from sergeant for fraternization with a woman while in Moscow. The sources, who asked not to be named, previously disclosed that both Bracy and Sgt. Clayton J. Lonetree became involved with Soviet women who worked at the embassy. The sources said Bracy's reduction in rank came last August, but it did not attract any special attention until investigators began probing Lone tree's activities earlier this year. ton Chiles, D-Fla., the committee's chairman, would cut the deficit by $37 billion in 1988.

"There are lots of Southern states, but there may not be a South." Beyle said a Southerner would probably appear on the final ticket, from either party or from both parties. So far, no Southern Democrats have announced their candidacy for president. Moscow The Marine Corps stressed none of the guards currently posted in Moscow is suspected of wrongdoing. But it said in a joint statement with the State Department it would replace all guards sometime in April. The Marine Corps said the guards would be transferred to the head quarters of their parent command at the Marine base at Quantico, Va., where Bracy and Lonetree are being held. The State Department said last week it had launched a wide-ranging probe of security procedures in William R. Keech, a UNC polit ical science professor, said by not raising income taxes the plan min imizes the political impact of a tax boost. Cigarettes, tobacco and energy, however, may bear the tax burden. Although there is no other way to balance the budget, Reagan would certainly veto any plan involving a tax hike, Keech said. Sen. Terry Sanford, D-N.C, a member of the budget committee, is interested in Chiles' proposal, but he is not in favor of raising the tax on 'Koala Week' focuses By JUSTIN McGUIRE Staff Writer Koala is an aboriginal word which means "no drinks."

Michael Dukakis have already been campaigning in the South. They have helped elevate the South to such a level that people are paying attention to it, Beyle said. Beyle said the Rev. Jesse Jackson, popular among Southern blacks but less appealing to white Southerners, may have a "fear impact" on con servative Democrats, who might turn to the Republican party. But Republicans may also lose moderate supporters if Sen.

Bracy was arrested two weeks ago and transferred to Quantico on March 24. He is being held in confinement pending a pretrial investigation and the placement of formal charges. Last Friday, however, the Marines said Bracy's arrest and the contin uing military investigation had prompted the lodging of five new charges against Lonetree, bringing the number of counts he faces to 24. cigarettes, said Tom Lawton, San ford's press secretary. Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C, could not be reached for comment. Chiles' plan would not meet the goal set by the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Act to reduce the budget to $108 billion by 1988, based on Congressional estimates. It would produce a balanced budget by 1991.

Thatcher took Gorbachev to task specifically on human rights and the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. "We will reach our judgments not on intentions or on promises but on deeds and on results," she said of Western leaders. Cooking-oil case opens MADRID, Spain An angry crowd threw stones Monday at defendants emerging from the opening session of the trial in the poison-cooking-oil case that killed at least 584 people six years ago.

"The administration has predicted a good, fast-moving economy which brings the revenue projections up and makes things look better," Wilde said. Reagan's plan would raise money by selling federal assets, such as student loans, reducing the deficit temporarily, he said. on-substance abuse learn about drug and alcohol abuse."

The first death was reported in May 1981 from the adulterated rapeseed oil intended for industrial use. Although Bengoechea told an investigating judge in 1981 he knew the oil was destined for human consumption, he told Prosecutor Eduardo Fungairino on Monday that he was aware of it only after reports of deaths. Compensation equivalent to millions of dollars is demanded for the deaths and for injuries to 24,922 people. Dollar's drop worries investors NEW YORK A historic plunge in the dollar's value put a scare into bull markets around the world Monday as investors worried about an unrestrained decline in the U.S. currency and the outside chance of a trade war. The prices of stocks and bonds plunged in Tokyo, London and New York in reaction to the dollar's fall. The U.S. currency hit its lowest point against the Jap anese yen since modern exchange rates were established in the late 1940s after World War II. "It would be different than having a tax, which would stay in effect year to year and provide a continuous help to reducing the deficit," Wilde said. Chiles' proposal also calls for a reduction in federal spending equal to the tax increases. Medicare costs, energy and envir onmental programs and aid to farmers would face cutbacks. "It (Chiles' plan) asks everyone to give a little bit to achieve its goals," Keech said. and Drug Enforcement Agent Omar Aleman, about what is going on in drug enforcement and where it is headed, Zorn said.

It will include several participatory booths like the koala toss, koala darts and the koala drug wheel of knowledge, designed to educate students about drugs. "Before participating in any of the booths, you have to answer a drug trivia question," Zorn said. Also included in the Koala Kar nival will be "convince a koala," a panel of former UNC athletes who will hear arguments about how to "say no" from students. G105 will very likely broadcast live from the Pit during the Karnival, Zorn said. Amendment may have effect on protesters By REBECCA NESBIT Staff Writer Rep. Joe Hackney has decided to present an amendment to the General Assembly that would make it harder for UNC-System students arrested in campus demonstrations to escape prosecution in court. On March 13, Orange-Chatham District Attorney Carl Fox proposed the amendment to Hackney, who represents Orange and Chatham counties. If Fox's amendment is passed, the number of UNC administrators who have the authority to verify in court that Fordham ordered student pro testers to leave school property would be expanded to include Donald Boulton, vice chancellor for student affairs; Fred Schroeder, dean of students; Robert Sherman, UNC director of security services; and Maj. Charles Mauer, chief security officer for University police. Avoid the lottery blues.
