KERRY TAKES IOWA; EDWARDS CLOSES IN Unlikely upsets in caucus race leave a defiant Dean in 3rd, Gephardt defeated THEASSOCIATED PRESS DES MOINES, lowa John Kerry and John Edwards rode llth-hour surges to a one-two finish in lowa’s kickoff presidential caucuses Monday, dealing a stunning blow to favorite Howard Dean. Kerry's comeback blew the nomination fight wide open, setting the stage for a free-for-all in New Hampshire’s follow-up primary. Dean finished third, stripped of his front-runner’s mantle but still defiant. “We will not give up,” he told backers. PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES *O4 Rep. Dick Gephardt finished a weak fourth and planned to end his 33-year political career by pulling out of the race. His campaign given up for dead just weeks ago, Kerry predicted another comeback in New Hampshire’s Jan. 27 primary. “As I’ve said in New Hampshire and here, I’m a fighter,” the Massachusetts lawmaker told The Associated Press. “I’ve come from behind before, and I’m going to take the same fight that I’ve been making here to New Hampshire.” Edwards, 50, also claimed momentum. “This campaign, this cause, this movement is about bringing real change to America,” Edwards told supporters. “You and I can build an America and an image of America that we will be proud of.” Just two weeks ago, before the lowa race turned Tuition hike may strain grad funds BY LYNNE SHALLCROSS SENIOR WRITER Marko Dumancic likely is not the type of student people think of when they discuss the UNC Board of TVustees’ proposal to raise tuition. When it comes to the tuition increase, Dumancic has three fac tors working against him: he’s a nonresident, a graduate student and an international student. Like many other nonresident students, Dumancic, a native of SHIFTING THE BURDEN Today: Grad Tuition Wednesday: Enrollment Scholarships Thursday: Philosophy, Priorities Croatia who is working toward a doctoral degree in history, heard the news about the tuition increase looming on the horizon and became concerned. Graduate students are in a difficult situation when tuition rises because, unlike most undergraduates, many are paying back loans or supporting a family and might not be able to turn to their parents for help. For Dumancic, things are even more complicated. “We are not eligible to take student loans out,” Dumancic said, adding that banks will not provide loans to international students due to their foreign status. “We’re sort of stuck. Some of us might be forced to discontinue our studies.” As the BOT prepares for a vote this week on the largest campus-based tuition increase in recent school history, nonresident graduate students like Dumancic SEE TUITION, PAGE 4 n INSIDE GOVERNOR'S RACE 2004 N.C.

Kerry and Edwards turned that on its head, closing their campaigns with positive, forward looking messages while Dean and Gephardt bickered about past votes and quotes. “My campaign to fight for working people may be ending tonight, but our fight will never end,” Gephardt said in a post-caucus speech that sounded like a political farewell. His shirt sleeves rolled to his elbows, his voice ris ing to a shout, Dean tried hard to reset expectations. “If you would have told us a year ago we would come third in lowa, we would have taken anything for that,” he yelled and later ticked off the primary states beyond New Hampshire. Dean said he called Kerry and Edwards and told them, “I’ll see you around the comer, around the block, starting tomorrow.” But the new day will bring new challenges for Dean. His vaunted Internet-driven organization, MLK Day inspires celebration, protests BY CHRIS GLAZNER AND DAN SCHWIND ASSISTANT CITY EDITORS What started as a church service honoring the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ended Monday in a protest against what organizers see as modem injustices. Local clergymen and guest speak ers led ceremonies at the First Baptist Church on Roberson Street celebrat ing what would have been Kings 75th birthday by exhorting citizens to take part in the political process. “It doesn’t matter what race you are. As long as racism and discrim ination exist, you have an obligation to do something,” said Carolyn Coleman, guest speaker at the serv ice. In describing King’s life, Coleman emphasized the need for citizens to vote and continue the civil rights leader’s fight against injustice. She also pointed out that despite the advances toward equality made since King’s death, discrimination still can be found nationwide. “If you don’t know that racism still exists in this country, you’re either blind, deaf or dead,” Coleman said. Her words were echoed by Rebecca Clark, namesake of the www.dailytarheel.com - U 1 Sr jsM DTH FILE PHOTO/GILLIAN BOLSOVER which helped him raise more than S4O million and dispatch 3,500 volunteers to lowa, didn’t deliver. His anti-war, anti-establishment message didn’t resonate. His rivals Kerry and Edwards here and Wesley Clark in New Hampshire didn’t back down. Indeed, Clark rose in New Hampshire polls while Dean slipped in lowa. Now, the retired four-star Army general has turned his sights on Kerry, a dec orated Vietnam War veteran. “He’s got military background, but nobody in this race has got the kind of background I’ve got,” Clark said. “It’s one thing to be a hero as a junior officer. He’s done that. I respect that... but I’ve got the mil itary experience at the top as well as at the bottom.” STRONG GAINS FOR EDWARDS Edwards' relatively quiet campaign enjoyed a late surge, which the candidate attributed to a positive campaign. ■ John Kerry 38% ■ John Edwards 32% * Howard Dean 18% ■ Dick Gephardt 11 % National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s Rebecca Clark Award, which she received Monday. Clark, who has worked as a housekeeper and a nurse UNC, was recognized for her work in getting people to vote. Clark’s success as a precinct cap tain for the Democratic Party made her a fixture of local politics and helped bring about the election of Howard Lee as the first black mayor in Chapel Hill. J.R. Manley also was honored as he was presented the Martin Luther King Award for his civil rights work and his 55 years serving as pastor for the church. The service was followed by a march down Franklin Street led by civil rights attorney A1 McSurely. About 350 marchers sang songs that marked the 1960s civil rights move ment, such as “We Shall Overcome.” The march concluded at the Chapel Hill Post Office, where the commemoration continued with a rally featuring speeches by several local community leaders.

SPORTS PULLING IT OFF In a turning point, the Tar Heels manage to upset Connecticut, the top team in the nation PAGE 14 TUESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2004 Faculty condemns BOT plan on tuition BY BRIAN HUDSON ASSISTANT UNIVERSITY EDITOR UNC-Chapel Hill’s Faculty Council whose mem bers, administrators say, have the most to gain from a campus-based tuition increase has condemned unanimously the Board of Trustees’ tuition proposal. During the council’s meeting Friday, members approved a resolution opposing the BOT’s proposal to raise tuition $1,500 for nonresident students. The board is considering the move partly to generate funds to retain and recruit faculty. The council’s eight-point resolution expressed par ticular concern about routing the funds generated by the increase to athletic scholarships, and advised that some of the revenue go toward financial aid for cur rent students that would be affected by tuition hikes. Chancellor James Moeser responded to the reso lution at Friday’s meeting, urging council members to consider the goals of a campus-based tuition increase. “At its core, this campus-based tuition proposal is about supporting the intellectual capital of this University, mainly the faculty.” But Moeser said he thinks the BOT should deter mine the effects of continued nonresident tuition increases before enacting them. He said, however, that the board is likely to enact a large one-year non resident tuition increase at its Jan. 22 meeting despite opposition from students and faculty. “I think there are lots of nuances on how this gets SEE RESOLUTION, PAGE 4 Thefts top apartment crime stats BY SHANNAN BOWEN ASSISTANT CITY EDITOR Students in search of off-campus housing for next semester should be aware of larcenies and other crimes in apartment complexes, police and property officials say. According to the 2003 crime statistics released last week by the Chapel Hill Police Department and the Carrboro Police Department, larcenies were the most frequent crime committed in local apartments. The 59 complexes included in the statistics expe rienced 583 acts of larceny, which was defined by police as the taking or stealing of property without the use of violence or fraud.
