on the agenda.

for the positions she has taken on the
school system's reorganization. Otherwise,
seem to be doing a satisfactory job, according
to tHe informal survey. The
Roundtable endorsed Steve Neal
for Congress, Richard Barnes for the state
Senate, Dr. C.B. Hauser, Annie Brown
Kennedy, R.J. Childress and Tom C.
Womble for the state House; Mazie
Woodruff for county commissioner and
Bailey, Lohr and John S. Holleman Jr.
for the city-county school board.
The Chronicle slate differed slightly
from the Roundtable^, excluding-Lohr
from its school board endorsees, excluding
Womble from its state House endorsees
and choosing Margaret TennOle
for state House.
Just how responsive have the candidates
who were endorsed by the black
leadership and heavily supported by black
voters been to the black community?
"To know who has been responsive to
the black community/* says local
NAACP President Patrick Hairston,
any of the candidates have received
any mail from a black person other than a
faithful few of us .... And I don't think it
would be fair to judge them.
"First, we have to ask, 'What have wc
demanded from them?' It is past the time,
-day and place when white people can
decide what we want," Hairston says.
"We have to tell them."
But Walter Marshall, vice president of
the NAACP, says he has no qualms about
rating the candidates because "1 have
been to most of them and asked questions
and told them what I want."
Following are Marshall's individual
ratings of the candidates:
