peaker tells, off peffsecmtoe
off Jews in the Soviet" Uhmobi
By MEG CRADDOCK
Jews in the Soviet Union are
persecuted every day of their lives
even if they are non-practicing, Allen
Rozinsky, a Jewish Soviet emigre,
told 15 people in the North Dining
Room of Lenoir Hall Wednesday
lt is bad for everyone, but it is
twice as bad for Jews. It gets even
worse if you are religious," said
Rozinsky, who left the Soviet Union
in 1979 and lives in Durham.
. To understand the predicament of
Soviet Jews, one must understand
the three main problems faced by all
Soviets. Rozinsky said. Soviets lack
personal freedom, face widespread
lying and corruption, and hav e a low
standard of living.
: Persecution of Jews takes many
forms, Rozinsky said. Jews are
blamed for crop failures and food
shortages. Also, it may take up to
three times as long for a Jew to get
a promotion than a member of
another ethnic group.
Universities often discriminate
against Jews, Rozinsky said.
He said only 3 percent of his class
at the University of Leningrad was
Jewish. The rest of the Jewish
applicants were given failing grades
on a composition exam to make
them ineligible for the university.
History textbooks make no refer
ences to Jewish people or their
history, Rozinsky said. The state
approved textbook gives no mention
of the Jewish soldiers who won
medals in World War 11, he said.
It pays to be Jewish in one aspect
of Soviet life, Rozinsky said. The
government allows Jews to emigrate
even though it does not allow anyone
else to, he said.
Above-average visibility of the
Jewish population prompts wide
spread persecution in the Soviet
Union, Rozinsky said. They live in
ev ery region of the country, and their
lifestyles are often different from the
average Russian, he said.
"The Jews are a very convenient
target to be a scapegoat," he said.
The portrayal of Soviet life by the
American media is accurate,
although the media cannot always
get the whole truth because it lacks
full access to the Soviet closed
society, Rozinsky said.
"It (the media) is pretty accurate,
but on many occasions 1 think it
doesn't go far enough," he said.
The United States should work to
broaden human rights in the Soviet
Union, but should not be overly
optimistic about making deals with
the Russians, Rozinsky said. In
order to inspire true social change,
the United States must make human
rights an issue in treaties and have
them signed by the Soviet officials,
But the United States must realize
the likelihood of broken Soviet

promises, he said.
"We have to understand that if we
sign an agreement they woa't follow
it. They don't follow anything," he
The United States should not be
too eager to disband its nuclear
weapon arsenal, because U.S.
strength must be enough to pi event
a Soviet first strike, he said.
Legislature ready to fight possible Martin suit
By RUTH DAVIS
-The N.C. General Assembly will
be ready to meet Gov. Jim Martin's
possible courtroom challenge of a
law which created a commission to
oversee the construction of the state
government building complex, said
Sen. William Goldston. D
Rockingham. The law. which was enacted
Monday, establishes a State Building
Commission composed of three
people appointed by the governor,
three by the lieutenant governor and
three by the N.C. House of Repre
Rockingham, who authored the
N.C. Senate version of the bill, said
Attorney General Lacy Thornburg
expressed his willingness to defend
the law in court if the governor files
"I checked with the Attorney
General's office on the constitution
ality of the bill long before 1 made
the proposal," he said. "1 certainly
would not try to pass a bill that was
unconstitutional. It's certainly not
stripping the governor of anything."
Tim Pittman, Martin's press
secretary, said the bill should be
challenged because it strips the
governor of some of his powers.
"The panel would clearly be
weighted toward the interests of the
legislature," Pittman said. "The
legislature would have the final say."
Goldston said Martin previously
appointed people to the state build
ing panel without soliciting qualified
people from the building industry.
The new law requires nominations
from architects, electricians and
builders, he said.
Pittman said the decision to
challenge the law in court may not
occur for a long time.
Shultz expresses optimism
about possible missile treaty
From Associated Press reports
Secretary of State George Shultz
expressed optimism in Moscow
about reaching an accord on
nuclear missiles from Europe and
flew to Brussels to consult with
Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnaze told Shultz
on Wednesday that the Soviets
would eliminate their shorter
range missiles in the Soviet Union
within a year after U.S. Senate
confirmation of a proposed treaty
on medium-range missiles.
U.S. allies in Europe generally
are reluctant to see all nuclear
missiles removed, fearing the
superior Soviet strength in con
ventional forces that would
Shultz said the goal of the
negotiations on the shorter-range
missiles would be to eliminate
them completely within a year.
North investigation continues
WASHINGTON Before Lt.
Col. Oliver North was fired last
November, he and his secretary
destroyed so many documents
that their White House shredding
machine broke down under the
load, government investigators
have been told.
Meanwhile, sources said that
investigators for both independ
ent council Lawrence Walsh and
congressional committees have
obtained a wealth of material
from North's office, including a
record of his telephone calls,
meetings and other contacts, and

ments altered by his secretary.
No decision in Marine hearing
WASHINGTON - A pre-trial
hearing for a Marine embassy
guard accused of espionage
recessed Wednesday without any
decision on whether he should be
bound over for court-martial.
Lonetree, 25, is a former guard
at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
He has been accused of becoming
romantically involved with a
Soviet woman while working in
Moscow and then allowing Soviet
agents to roam the embassy late
at night last year.
But Michael Stuhff, one of
Lonetree 's attorneys, said he was
prepared to present evidence that
such fraternization was "a very
common accepted practice."
Tammy Fay e's beauty secrets
NEW YORK - Tammy Faye
Bakker knows how to keep her
marriage interesting. She simply
wears different wigs for her
husband, Jim, who quit as head
of the PTL ministries last month
after acknowledging he had had
sex with a church secretary.
She also rarely goes to bed
without her makeup and swears
by her false eyelashes: "Jim has
very seldom seen me without
makeup and hardly ever in my
life without my eyelashes. 1 think
every woman ought to wear

The four-member team, com
posed of Mark Holt, Jennie Wil
helm, Cindy York and Jacques
Whitfield, was coached by third-year
law student Janet Ceropski to a final
9-0 record. Wilhelm, York and
Whitfield are second-year law stu
dents, and Holt is a third-year
student. Because Georgetown Uni
versity and Louisiana State Univer
sity (LSU) also had 9-0 records in
the competition, the tie was broken
by referring to raw points. UNC
placed second to LSU by only 24
"The whole team felt very close,"
Ceropski said Wednesday. "It was
like icing on the cake that we went
as far as we did." She also noted '
the importance of strong support
from the entire law school:
Moot court gives law students an
opportunity to argue a case designed
by professors representing real
world law. The Jessup team was
selected by intramural competition
at UNC's law school and argued a
case in international law.
The case problem was assigned in
November 1986, so team members
could research and write briefs to
submit for regional competition.
They spent six weeks preparing their
oral arguments in practice sessions
with UNC faculty.
Undefeated at the regional level,
UNC joined teams from 12 other
regions of the United States and 26
foreign countries at the national
Jessup competition, which was part
of a larger international law conven
tion for professionals. All argued the
saftie case, in English or French! This

"I think it was a really important
experience for all of us," Ceropski
said. "As a team, they just were never
beaten." The competition gives law
students a chance to work together
that often does not come up in the
classroom, she added.
The Jessup team is the inter
national part of the UNC moot court
bench. The national team works on
domestic law, typically with a case
involving the Constitution. The
school also sponsors a client coun
seling team, which placed second in
the regional competition this year,
and several two-person invitational
teams. All follow a format similar
to the Jessup team, submitting briefs
to given problems and later present
ing oral arguments.
