Strong criticism from local black leaders and t
little support from fellow congressmen have a
prompted Sth District Rep. Stephen L. Neal to
suddenly end his plans to urge the United States
not to vote against South Africa's request for <
an International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan.
"I didn't think 1 had the votes," Neal said in
a phone interview from Washington earlier this
week. "An awful lot of people did not follow
the details of the IMF closely, even within the j
Congress." . i

He's been doing the job for some time
now, but now he officially has the title,
James Dew says.
Dew was recently promoted from assistant
to the superintendent to deputy
superintendent for the WinstonSalem/Forsyth
County School System.
The new title becomes effective on July 1,
the beginning of the next fiscal year.
The official duties that Dew will take
on have not been clearly defined, he says,
but among them will be the overseeing of
some new departments, including computer
services, testing, research and
evaluation and fund procurement.
The new title makes Dew officially the

responsibilities. The one major

after reading my job description and seeing
me in operation, he realized that I had
real authority, but that apparently my job
. description did not say that," Dew says.
"So Dr. Eargle decided that he would
go to the Board of Education and recommend
that my title be changed to correspond
with the duties and responsibilities I
