arry to seek help
fBy JENNIFER BLACKWELL
-vC Washington, D.C., Mayor Marion
farry has left the city to seek treatment,
veaving behind confusion and concern
.. urrounding his recent arrest on charges
, t 6f drug use.
Barry was arrested shortly after 8
' p.m. last Thursday at the Vista Interna-
. ? Sonal Hotel in Washington as part of a
FBI sting operation, said Bobbie Wal
' lace, press liaison for the FBI in Wash--KVjngton.
Barry was charged Friday with
". ''misdemeanor cocaine possession by
. U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens.
If convicted, Barry faces a maxi
num sentence of one year in jail or a
jvj. Barry has temporarily turned over
Sris mayoral duties to City Administra
tor Carol Thompson, said Lurma Rack-
t3?y. the mayor's press secretary. These
hjties include everything except sign
pSjig legislation, she said. Thompson
' - ijorrnally handles these affairs during
plhe mayor's absence and will continue
to do so until Barry's return.
r "Resignation is not an option at this
time," Rackley said. Barry is concen
" ' trating on his physical and mental state
and the process of "restoring himself to
'.full health," she said. Barry flew to the

This action sparked the brawl involv
ing fans and players from both teams,
the official said.
Within 15 minutes after the shoving
began, the entire gymnasium was
cleared of all players and fans.
A&T campus and Greensboro city
police are reviewing a video tape of the
game and will take action as appropri
ate, according to the official.
No offense reports have been filed
with the Criminal Investigation De
partment of Greensboro city police,
however, according to Lt. Jim
"I don't know who has the tape and
who's doing what with it. Last week we
got no offense reports."
Two officers were injured outside
when his advisers think it is appropri
ate. Charlene Jarvis, a member of the
D.C. Council and a mayoral candidate,
said she did not recommend that Barry
resign since Washington was in the
middle of an election year. "It would be
very disrupting to the ongoing stability
of the government," especially since
David Clarke, the chairman of the
Council and the man who would take
over the mayor's office, is also a candi
date for mayor.
She said she thought it was unlikely
that Barry would run for re-election.
His arrest will provide an impetus
for an expanded drug program, she
H.R. Crawford, a D.C. Council
member, also saw no need for a resig
nation. He said Barry had done what he
should have done by humbling himself
in public, trying to cope with his prob
lem and leaving a "capable and compe
tent lady in charge." Barry's staff also
includes a well-rounded group of pro
fessionals, he said.
"Everything's going to be just fine."
Barry has had personal problems,
but he has helped the city, Crawford
added. "(There is) a renaissance in this
city like neverbefore." He said he hoped
the people would not forget the good
Barry has done, because he "is one hell
of a man."
He said he was confident that who
ever was elected in the mayoral race in
September would be highly qualified.

released Thursday night from Moses

Additionally, a Greensboro police
car received $50 worth of damage.
Approximately 12 people were
brought in for treatment of injuries

Crawford said he did not think
Barry's arrest would have any impact
on the anti-drug program in the city.
Wallace said the agency would
continue doing its job in cracking down
on drugs in the District. She added that
if Barry's case came to trial, agents
involved with his arrest would testify.
Barry is scheduled to appear for a
plea hearing Feb. 5. Wallace said no
one knows how the mayor will plead.
Thomas Hcdrick. president of Part
nership for a Drug-free America, said
Barry's arrest would serve as a re
minder of how serious the drug prob
lem is in the United States.
"Drugs are not a function of just
underprivileged individuals. It reaches
to every area of American society ... no
one is safe."
He added that Barry's arrest would
send mixed messages to children in the
District since Barry played a prominent
role in Washington's war on drugs. The
District should "triple and quadruple
their efforts in prevention," he said.

"Buchanan is investigating the in

basketball players and is reviewing
videotapes of the game," said David
Witherspoon, press officer at NCCU.
Both schools are enforcing NCAA
regulations governing the conduct of
athletes during games. These regula
tions call for warnings for all players
involved. The warnings constitute
immediate probation, and if players
receive a second charge, a one-game
suspension will follow. A third charge
calls for season suspension.
Seven players from A&T are on

as he did for political reasons. One
reason, he said, was the danger other

was the need for Gorbachev to restore
some degree of authority in the Soviet
Union at a moment when there was a

ticipants felt there was a void in the
science fiction writing area. "It doesn't
seem like most of the conventional
writers' groups are interested in sci
ence fiction," said Joanne Wyrick,
president of Chimera and member of
the writer's group.
Wyrick, a senior history major from
Greensboro, said despite the fact that
the authors of "Forbidden Lines" by
passed ordinary publishing channels,
the book is not an underground publi
cation. "Forbidden Lines," named for an
astronomy term, is a paperback book
with science fiction and fantasy-related
poems, stories and essays. The writers
are mostly UNC students, but the works
of professional writers including
Frederik Pohl and Joe Bob Briggs
also are represented.
SFWG chose the book format be
cause it had a more professional ap
pearance, according to Anthony Enns,
an SFWG member.
"It was originally going to be a
magazine, but then we got so many
submissions and the stories were so
long, we wanted the extra space to fit it
all," said Enns, a sophomore English
major from Raleigh.
The SFWG members, despite varied
styles and subjects, share a long-standing
interest in science fiction and writ
ins. The group meets every other week,
but the members also reviewed sub
missions at home. The members tried
to read all the submissions, and the
choices were made by majority vote.
This aspect of the book was one of
the most difficult, members agreed.
"The hardest thing, aside from the
typing, which was a pain, was making
the decision," said Angeli Primlani, a
senior English major from Rocky
Mount. "Some outside submissions
were very, very good, and some were
very, very not."

Both schools have issued statements
expressing regret over the incidents
"Fans must not become involved on
the basketball court or playing field,"
said Orby Moss, A&T athletic director.
"When they do, they put athletic events
in jeopardy. Fighting between the teams
can be stopped by officials and coaches
if fans do not become involved. Once
they do, it then becomes a police prob
lem." Investigation into injuries and ar

growing perception in the country
of government weakness and un
punishable defiance of authority.
"The conllict in Azerbaijan is not
only motivated by religious or ethnic
interests but also by social class dif
ferences," Schwartz said. In spite of
their minority status, Armenians
control a great deal of economic ac
tivities in Azerbaijan and they are
considered, in general, more educated
than Azerbaijanis, Schwartz said.
According to a U.S. government
source, the use of force in Azerbaijan
would not have any effect on the
perestroika and glasnost policies es
tablished by Gorbachev almost five
years ago. "Gorbachev will pick up
the pace of his reform instead of
stopping it," the source said.
Jim Philip of the Heritage Founda

military intervention would have a
negative impact on Gorbachev's'
policies of openness in that the ac

in the Soviet Union.

Members agreed that seeing their
work in print was satisfying. The most
rewarding aspect, Primlani said, was
"actually walking into the Hardback a
couple of days ago and staring at it."

Primlani said. "( Iliere's) pretty much

One of the fantasy contributions,
"Requiem for a Vampire," by Wyrick,
is in verse. "I think all of us have

would be really cool to live forever,"
she said. "A vampire can, at a price. Is
it worth it? I think it's different from
most vampiie liteiature in one way
the vampire is the woman."
In contrast, Enns' "Black as Sin" is
more traditional in form and theme.
Enns described his story, which fo
cuses on a battle in a futuristic society,
as "sort of an ignorant view of the
whole thing. I see the characters as very
one dimensional. There's this whole
heroic image the heroes are anti
heroes." Primlani s story, "Queen of the
Nothings," occurs in a setting far re
moved from the stereotypical space
ships of science fiction or magical
kingdoms of fantasy. "The town in there
is very thinly disguised Rocky Mount.
