degree murder in the death of Cates, has
been set for the Jan. 1 1 session of Orange
County Superior Court. Ronnie
Broadwell, Rufus Paul Nelson and
William Johnson are to go on trial for the
stabbing death of Cates outside of the
Carolina Union Nov. 2 1 .
The preliminary hearing for King was
postponed originally because the
principle witness for state failed to appear
Howard Watson, the prosecution's
witness, did not attend the first
preliminary hearing although a subpeona
had been served and he was under 55,000
bond to appear.
King is charged with assaulting Grady
Burnett, a black youth, in the predawn
brawl which led to Cates' death. Burnett
spent several days in the N.C. Memorial
Hospital for the treatment of severe
lacerations which he received in the fight.
James Maxwell, a Durham attorney, is
defending King in the case.
A move to have the trial for the other
three Storm Troopers held before Jan. 1 1
in a special Superior Court session has
failed due to the lack of available time in
which to hold the session, Maxwell
reported. He had suggested the move in a
bond hearing for the three defendants,
but, after further discussions with the
court personnel involved, he decided
another session was impractical.
Maxwell is also representing William
Johnson in . the trial on the murder
King is presently out of jail on 55,000
bond. The other three defendants are still
in the Orange County Jail, having had
their appeals for bond twice denied.
The system, although thoroughly
confusing, was carried out efficiently and
effectively by conservative party
minorities in SL Thursday night.
The cumulative voting system allows
each legislator one vote for each of the
committee members to be chosen. Since
tT f a ""'"""'"""'"""'""")
it was decided by motion that all the
committees should be composed of seven
members, each legislator had seven votes to
to distribute among the list of candidates.
The clerk called the roll, taking count
of each representative's seven votes. The
situation was further complicated by the
ability of the individual to change his
vote after the roll had been called.

The five predominately black public
universities of North Carolina have
attacked a student aid plan proposed by
the Consolidated University.
The plan proposed by UNC, along
with the majority of the, other
state-supported colleges and universities
in the state, is designed to be an
alternative to one suggested in September
by a legislative study commission.
The plan proposed by the University
would give student aid in the form of flat

Throughout the selection process, a

committee were nominated; When the
legislator's name was called he would
either cast all seven of his votes for one
candidate or distribute seven votes among
two or three candidates. No
representative cast a single vote for seven
If a legislator saw one of his favored
candidates leading by a surmountable
sum of votes, he would turn his support
to a second favorite or a third or
