Hawke said. He encouraged students
to work in political campaigns as a
way to move up in party ranks.
Because the Republicans are a
minority party, there is a demand for
student workers, he said.

GOP will be able to pull ahead of
the Democrats in North Carolina. (
"All the Democratic presidential
candidates are radical," Hawke said.
"They're too liberal. You can go right
down the list of Democratic candi
dates and not find one to agree with.
But the Republican candidates are
men 01 accompusnmeni, men wno

Many Republican candidates see
North Carolina as a make or break
point in the South, Hawke said.
North Carolina's Super Tuesday
primary may be crucial for a GOP
victory, he said. -

Congress foaclb in action
and ready to tackle Issues
By LAURIE DUNCAN
The 100th Congress reconvened
Wednesday to tackle a "full plate" of
issues, including plans for Central
America, appropriations for federal
agencies and the supreme court
nomination of Judge Robert Bork.
In addition, campaign finance
reform, trade legislation, deficit
reduction plans and legislation to
regulate corporate takeovers are
other priorities on the congressional
"The Congress still has a full plate
ahead of it," said Tom Lawton, press
secretary for Sen. Terry Sanford, D
N.C. He said Sanford was especially
interested in campaign finance reform
and a plan for economic redevelop-
ment in Central America.

Gov. Jim Martin re-elected is impera
tive, Hawke said.
"This is the first time a Republican
governor pas run to succeed himself
Hawke said. "If we cant re-elect Jim
Martin, we're in sad shape."
The majority sentiment in Con-
cress is to give Central America a
chance under the peace plan devised
by Costa Rican President Oscar
Arias, said Jim Jordan, press secre-
tary for Rep. David Price, D-N.C.
Military aid to the contras expires
at the end of September, and Con
gress is unlikely to vote for further
aid unless it is for humanitarian
purposes, Jordan said. A vote to
renew aid is expected to come up
before the current aid expires, he said.
Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C, of
Greensboro, is concentrating on
domestic concerns a bill to regulate
textile, apparel and fiber imports; a
balanced-budget proposal to reduce
the deficit each year until it is gone;
arid appropriations of funds to
federal agencies, said Ed McDonald,
his press secretary.

News in Brief
Controversy over PTL lawyer
COLUMBIA, S.C. Jim and
Tammy Bakker were waging a
personal vendetta when they
accused PTL attorney Roy Grut
man of a conflict of interest, one
of PTL's attorneys argued in
documents prepared for Wednes
day's bankruptcy court hearing.
Lawyers were arguing whether
Grutman should continue to
represent PTL and whether 19-year-old
Kevin Whittum, a han
dicapped relative of defrocked
PTL founder Jim Bakker, should
be evicted from an 1 1-room house
at Heritage USA and moved to
Bakker, in documents filed
through an attorney, maintains
that Grutman should be disqual
ified for conflict of interest.
Bakker's lawyers say Grutman
represents the private interests of
the Rev. Jerry Falwell, PTL's
current chairman, and at one time
gave Bakker the impression that
he represented Bakker.
Grutman has denied represent
ing Bakker and said no conflict
of interest exists.
"We're hoping that all the students,
particularly the ones that won't get
to see the debate on Friday because
of classes, will take this chance to see
Paul Simon," Epstein said.
Simon's brief speech will be fol
lowed by questions from the
audience, Epstein said. All students
and faculty are welcome to attend.
Simon is scheduled to participate
Friday morning in "Education TS8,"
a forum on educational issues.
