"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 have the right views on the issues." 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. - If someone comes out ot buper Tuesday with a good leadKwe will have a good idea who our candidate is," Hawke said. For the GOP, 1988 will be a telltale year, he said.

In addition, campaign finance reform, trade legislation, deficit reduction plans and legislation to regulate corporate takeovers are other priorities on the congressional agenda.

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.

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 smaller quarters. 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.
