Despite the December expiration
of a federal mandate requiring
minimum minority enrollment per
centages in UNC-system schools, the
Board of Governors (BOG) has
decided to continue programs
designed to increase minority pres
ence in the system.
; The consent decree, filed by the
U.S. Department of Education in
1981, expired Dec. 31, 1988. It
originally called for 10.6 percent
minority enrollment in the 11
predominately white UNC-system
schools by December 1986, but the

But athletic department officials
continue to call the controversy a
misunderstanding and say there is
no way to increase the number of
lower-level student seats.
"A misunderstanding is putting
it very politely," Carol Geer,
Carolina Athletic Association
(CAA) president, said. "That is not
the case. Misrepresenting or mis

Paul Hoolahan, associate
athletic director, attributed the
discrepancy to a misunderstanding
during the construction of the
Smith Center, when the estimated
number of seats was decreased.
Neil Riemann, speaker of Stu

explanation is incorrect.
"We have enough documents to
make him look like a fool," he said.
"There's no misunderstanding.
They're lying . . . The only mis
understanding there could possi
bly be is stupidity on their part."
Publicity and pressure are
essential to getting the 2,159
tickets, Riemann said. Before any
action is taken, the students must
be "angry about it and commit

The CAA has had few student
reactions to the situation, said
CAA president Carol Geer.

Hill police blocked off the area for
in the last four years.
The BOG also decided to make
information about the schools avail
able to prospective students, increase
cooperation with N.C. public schools
and increase graduate and profes
sional recruitment at the traditionally
black schools in the system.
The decree resolved a dispute
between the UNC system and the
Department of Education over the
system's desegregation efforts. The
UNC system had filed a lawsuit in
response to the Department of
Education's threat to withhold fed
eral funding because of unsatisfactory
efforts to increase black enrollment.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a
dream maker rather than a dreamer,
and this set him apart from other civil
rights leaders, Bernice King said
Thursday to a capacity crowd in
King's speech, sponsored by the
Carolina Union Forum Committee,
was the keynote address of the eighth
annual Martin Luther King Jr.
America portrays King Jr. as a
dreamer because that makes him less
threatening, said King, the civil rights
leader's youngest daughter. But he
dared to make dreams happen.
"Martin Luther King was a non
violent revolutionist. He was a
decision maker, a soul agitater."
Because of her father, King said,
"We not only sleep in Holiday Inns,
we lie beside the pool and soak in
freedom rays and drink from libe

that required courage of convictions,

North Carolina has the best record
of increased minority enrollment of
any Southern state in the period from
1976 to 1986, he said.
"Also, we were second in the nation
in increased minority enrollment
during that period," Dawson said.

it could be connected," he said.
It's also possible that the stove fire
could have been started by someone
who got the idea from the bulletin
board fires, Dunn said.
Members of the housekeeping staff
discovered the burned papers in the
sixth floor kitchen at 7:30 a.m. The
papers were cold, so the fire probably
started in "the late hours," Dunn said.

Both Eddie Hatcher and Timothy
Jacobs have left North Carolina and
face possible extradition processes to
bring them back to Robeson County
to face state charges of kidnapping.
Hatcher failed to show for a court

When Hatcher did not appear in

an arrest order would go into effect,
Robeson County district attorney
Richard Townsend said Thursday in

Hatcher is living at the Fort Hall
Indian Reservation in Idaho, which

But Jacobs may have to go to trial.
Last week, New York Gov. Mario
Cuomo signed extradition papers on
Jacobs at the request of N.C. Gov.
Jim Martin, Cuomo's spokesman
Francis Sheehan said Wednesday.
Jacobs extradition is pending a court
hearing scheduled for Feb. 28 in
Madison County, N.Y.
At a Jan. 12 hearing, Jacobs was
released on $25,000 bond and ordered
not to leave the state of New York.
Hatcher and Jacobs were indicted
Dec. 6 on 14 counts of second-degree
kidnapping for the Feb. 1 armed
takeover of the Lumberton news
paper The Robesonian. If convicted,
each could receive a maximum
penalty of 30 years per count.
A federal jury acquitted the two
Indians Oct. 14 on federal hostage
taking and arms charges stemming
from the same incident.
Learning about the state indict
ments, Jacobs sought refuge at the

what is going on, King said, and King
Jr. made things happen. In the 1970s,
people watched from the sidelines,
and in the 1980s there are too many
who don't know what is going on.
Today people have become too
concerned with materialism and
appearance, she said. "All of us have
got caught up in following the
Joneses. We go along to get along."
People cannot choose to be born
into a certain situation, but they can
choose whether to let that situation
control them, she said. "We have the
capacity to rise above circumstance
and bring peace, love and freedom.
"If you were born in poverty or
with a silver spoon in your mouth,
that was not your choice. But if you
were ignorant, that was your choice,
or if the hair on top of your head
is worth more than the sense in your
head, that's your choice."
"The answer to our future is in our
hands," King said. "The choice is
yours. I am the dream, you are the
