From Associated Pri reports .
Michael Dukakis asserted Thurs
day that voters by the millions are
giving his underdog campaign "a very
strong second look" in the waning
days of the race for the White House.
George Bush said Democrats were
"grossly unfair" to say his advertising
is tinged with racism.
"You're looking at a man who was
out front for civil rights and I will
be again," the vice president said in
a network television interview. He
defended running mate Dan Quayle
on the same score and said any
political wounds would heal quickly
after the election.
Dukakis combined an attack on
the Reagan-Bush administration's
record on drugs with ritual declara
tions that the political tide was
turning in his favor. "His adminis
tration has cut deals with foreign drug
runners. I'm going to cut aid" to their
nations, said the Democratic
Most of the national attention was
on the White House campaign, but
viewers could hear each candidate's
own opinion, not so the candidates
could talk about each other, Gibson
"When we sat down with the
candidates we said we wanted to talk
about the issues, not about the other
guy," he said.
The program included interviews
with educational experts such as John
Silber, Boston University president,
and Mary Futrell, National Educa
tion Association president.
The program also included inter
views with two UNC students, Dawn
Siler, a junior from Graham, and
Edgerton Coble, a senior from Hope,
. Coble said appearing on national
TV was exciting, but he wished he
could have had more time to speak.
"It definitely was excitng, but I felt
that it was too rushed," he said.
About 15 UNC students inter
viewed with ABC, and two students
were chosen to be on the program,
"I told a friend of mine who was
involved in this (the program) that
I was interested in being interviewed,
then ABC called me and they asked

Democrats were expressing confi
dence they would control both houses
of the new Congress, although
Republicans said they had a chance
of picking up a seat or two in the
Senate. A dozen gubernatorial con
tests dotted ballots being printed for
next Tuesday's Election Day.
The public opinion polls in the
White House campaign continued to
provide encouragement for Bush.
ABC said its survey of North
Carolina once Dukakis' strongest
hope for a Southern success gave
the vice president an 11-point edge.
Dukakis held a four-point margin in
a New York survey.
Newspapers were choosing up sides
on their editorial pages and in one
case in the comics as well.
Bob Bryan, owner and publisher
of the Cullman Times and Athens
News Courier in Alabama, replaced
the comic strip "Cathy" with an
advertisement for Bush. Bryan had
objected to the comic strip as being
pro-Dukakis, and he said he "just
took the panel out that would have
been Cathy and right where Cathy

Some of the questions involved

The questions asked on the pro

ones in the interview, Coble said.

extremely pointed," he said. "The
questions over the phone were

Bush and Dukakis both were on
morning television programs while
embarking on another dawn-to-dusk
dash through key battleground states.
In a live 30-minute interview on
NBC's "Today" show and later at
campaign appearances in Illinois and
elsewhere, Bush said any political
wounds would heal in the weeks after
the election. "I think the country will
come together," he said. The vice
president also renewed his no-new-taxes
Bush heatedly denied that his
attacks on Dukakis over the Massa
chusetts prison furlough program had
racist overtones for citing the case of
Willie Horton Jr., who is black.
Horton, a convicted murderer, bru
talized a Maryland couple after
escaping, but Bush said his commer
cial "didn't have any reference to his
race and no picture on it."
He said Dukakis countered with
an ad showing a picture of a Hispanic
prisoner who had escaped from a
federal prison program and commit

"I think it's great for the school,"
said Mark Ricker, a junior from
Burlington. "I was watching on TV
earlier and they're getting some nice
pictures of the campus. There's some
kind of pride in having them want
to come here."
One student said he came by just

"You're looking at a man who is
one of compassion, of concern, and
yes, I was out front for civil rights
and I will be again," Bush said.
"And I don't have one ounce of
bigotry in my body. Nor does my
running mate," he said. Bush added
he wanted to "leave the tired baggage
of bigotry behind us."
Dukakis began his 55th birthday
in the interview chair at "CBS This
Morning," saying that despite the
public polls, the race was beginning
to break his way. He said voters are
unhappy with the Republican cam
paign, and added, "That's one of the
reasons that they're taking a very

"This is no longer a woman's issue,"
she said. "It's a family issue. It's a

Victory Village charges $325 a
month for day care services, and it
is often too expensive for parents who
are also students, Segal said.
"Three hundred dollars a month is
not affordable when rent is $300 a
month, too," he said.
Parents desperate for child care
often are forced to place their children
in inadequate facilities, Segal said.

a letter he had received from a second
year law student.The student related
his experience as a law student and
father of a one-year-old child.
