Police May Issue Murder
Charges in Subway Attack
TOKYO —Forthe first time, police are
considering bringing murder charges
against members of a doomsday cult for
last month’s nerve gas attack on Tokyo’s
subways, a newspaper reported.
Authorities have been hunting for a
group of 30 cult scientists who are sus
pected of preparing sarin, the nerve gas
used in the subway attack.
Until now, the most serious charge in
the March 20 attack that killed 11 people
was “preparing for murder” —a general
charge that doesn’t refer to specific vic
,;ms. But police are considering upgrading
that to homicide, the Asahi newspaper

Students Plan Strategy to Fight Cuts
BY CHRISTINA MASSEY
Concerned students met Thursday night
to discuss their plan of action one day after
the House proposed additional cuts to the
16-campus UNC-system’s budget.
Wednesday night, the House Appro
priations Subcommittee on Education pro
posed cuts to the UNC-system totaling
$47.9 million for the 1995-96 school year,
resulting in a 3.1 percent tuition increase
for students at all 16 campuses.
More than 20 student leaders from vari
ous campus organizations were angered
by the proposed budget and decided what
action they wanted to take to demonstrate
their opposition to the budget cuts and

In a press conference following the meet

‘'This business ofjust handing out money

Helms said he thought his vision for
changes in foreign aid followed a well

“Give a man a fish, and it will feed him
for a day,” he said. “Teach him how to fish,
and he can eat for a lifetime.”

Body President Calvin Cunningham said.
“We want to brainstorm what we can do.
Our overarching goal is to set the campus
student agenda for spring.”
At the meeting, students planned a strat
egy for educating the campus about the
effects of the budget cuts and discussed
holding a rally at Polk Place, preferably in
conjunction with rallies at the 15 other
campuses in the UNC system.
“I would like to see a rally that brings
together all universities in the system,”
Aaron Nelson, president of the Young
Democrats, said at the meeting. “If we can
get all 16 universities to do something at
the same time in front of the General Ad

show that we were upset, we would be

Gov. Jim Hunt throws out the ceremonial first pitch Thursday night at the new Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Bulls
lost their home opener in the park 6-2 to the Lynchburg Hillcats.
Home Run, Fanfare Open Bulls' Park
BY JAMES D. WHITFIELD
DURHAM After a yearlong wait,
the Durham Bulls’ new baseball park got
off to a “Wonderful” start Wednesday
As in Wonderful Monds.
After all the carnival-like festivities
wrapped up and every one of the 6,340
shiny new seats folded out for the overflow
crowd of 10,886, Monds christened the
Durham Bulls Athletic Park with a home
run in the first-ever at bat by a Bulls player
at the new stadium.
“I was teasing a couple of players before
the game,” Monds said of his inaugural
homer. “Once he got behind in the count,
I was just hoping he would throw some
thing I could handle, and he did.”

in attendance to throw out the first pitch.
“What do you think of this stadium?”
Hunt asked the crowd before hurling the
ball to Walter Sorgi—the Bulls’ first catcher
in 1945. “In my opinion this is the best
stadium, and Fenway Park (Boston’s an
cient ballpark) is second.”
The park, nestled into the heart of
Durham, definitely deserves the compari

benefit fans such as roomy seating and a
huge matrix board in center field, it also
sports several features characteristic of old
stadiums such as Fenway Park.
Accused E-Mail Hacker Has
A Day in Open Honor Court
ASSISTANT UNIVERSITY EDITOR
The freshman accused of hacking the
University ’s e-mail system was found guilty
and sentenced to 60 hours of community
service after an Honor Court hearing
the first open one in two years—that lasted
more than six hours Thursday.
Mark David Kucera, a freshman who
lives in 121 GranvilleTowersEast, will not
be allowed to use e-mail until his commu
nity service is completed.
Kucera was arrested Feb 14 and charged
with misusing an athletic pass and theft of
personal and academic materials.
He pleaded guilty to misusing the ath
letic pass and not guilty to theft.
Kucera allowed his hearing before the
Honor Court to be open. Assistant Dean of

Nathan Darling, student body treasurer,
said the problem with the budget extended
beyond the cuts and tuition hikes.
“What is really at stake here is public
higher education,” he said. “With these
actions, the legislature is saying that public
education is no longer a problem.”
Cunningham said students should take
an active role in protesting the budget cuts.
“I want to underscore the urgency with
which we must attack,” he said. “Our
University is being cut now. Budget cuts
and tuition increases affect all students
alike. Every student should be angered by
what the legislature has done to us.”
The money generated from tuition in
creases will not directly help the Univer
sity, Cunningham said. “All the increases
mean is that we are paying for prisons, ” he
said. “The tuition money is put in a general
fund and not given back to the University. ”
One of those features is the 24-foot wall
in left field which is an imitation of the
famous “Green Monster" at Fenway.
Because of the elegance, the park took a
full year longer to complete than originally
anticipated by architects. Many fans agreed
that it was well worth the wait.
