Student Body President Ford Runge
Wednesday announced his support of the
Tuscarora Indians in their inarch this
Friday on the state capitol in Raleigh.
Runge's support came after he had
been in touch with the Tuscaroras early
Wednesday morning. The Indians have
been issuing calls to many students in
North Carolina to aid their efforts.
Runge is hoping not only for food and
monetary support from the student body,
but also has arranged for buses to Raleigh
for students who wish to march along
with the Indians Friday.
To obtain support on the Chapel Hill
campus for the Indians, the Fast Coast
coordinator of the American Indian
Movement (AIM), Robert Garvie, will
speak in the Pit today at 1 2 noon.
The Tuscaroras will march in Raleigh
to try to pressure Gov. James Holshouser
into immediately convening the North
Carolina Commission on Indian Affairs so

that grievances may be heard.
Last week, Holshouser refused a
request by the Indians to call a meeting
of that commission.
According to a statement released by
the Robeson County, N.C. Indian
Movement and Chief Howard Brooks of
the United Tuscarora People, the basic
points of concern among the Indians are:
An end to discrimination on jobs,
voting, housing, welfare, education, and
Freedom from harassment and
violence on the part of the police;
The basic right to be their Indian
selves, in matters of dress styles, culture
The return of the land at Pembroke
State University to "its rightful heirs and
owners, the Lowry family, vho hold it in
trust for our people, the native people of
North Carolina and North America;"
Abolition of the "double-voting"
system in Robeson County; and
Valid representation in all divisions
of stale, county, local and federal
government that reflect the Indians' real
proportion of the population.
"I am urging all students to show their
support for the Tuscarora movement by
joining me in the march on Friday," said
"They are sincere . people who
rightfully demand an end to the
harrassment and discrimination to which
they have been subjected," he said. "The
Indian cause is just, and our help can be
an important asset in their fight for

Bernadette Devlin will not appear for
her April 24 speech at UNC, according to
Carolina Forum Chairperson Alan
Devlin was originally scheduled to
speak last semester, but cancelled her
appearance on notification of the death
of two friends killed during disturbances
in Northern Ireland.
A spring tour was then set up by her
agent. The forum. Stoudemire said,
operated through an agent in Boston who
contacted Devlin's agent. During the
winter, however, Devlin fired her agent
and has "been unreachable" since that
time. This was unknown to the forum
until earlier this week when Stoudemire
talked to the Boston agent.
Stoudemire regrets the cancellation
and adds: "Possibilities of cancellations
are a necessary risk when dealing with
volatile and unpredictable figures in
precarious political situations."
Lawrence Ferlinghetti is the next
forum speaker and will be at UNC on
April 19. The speech is free.
Student newspaper wins case
Mike Love of the Beach Boys, in concert Tuesday night
by Ken Allen
The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of
Appeals ruled Wednesday that the
president of North Carolina Central
University in Durham cannot cut off
funds to the student, newspaper, The
Campus Echo, because of the paper's
segregationist editorial policy.
UPI reported that the court said in its
2 to 1 decision that the action by Albert
N. Whiting, president of the
predominantly black Durham school,
violated the Constitutional protection of
The appeals court decision overturned
a ruling by District Judge Eugene A.
Whiting cut off funds to The Campus
Echo in 1971, shortly after Johnnie
Edward Joyner became editor-in-chief.
Joyner's first edition of the paper
criticized admittance of white students to
the state-supported school.
Joyner said that only blacks could
work for the paper and only black-owned
businesses could advertise.
North Carolina Central is currently
without a student paper.
Neither Whiting nor Joyner were
available for comment Wednesday night.
A lawsuit against The Daily Tar Heel
had been postponed pending the outcome
of the Echo case. That lawsuit attempts
to block funding of the DTH by student
fees on the grounds that the newspaper's
editorial policy does not meet with the
views of all the students.
Bob Spearman, attorney for the
defendants in the DTH case, said the
ruling could be of assistance to the
Imagination9 key to adaptive PoE,

Special to the DTH
"The thing you need more than anything else is
imagination," said Dr. Boyd Newman, describing the
problems of providing physical education i for. all
Newman supervises the UNC Physical Education
Department's adaptive physical education program,
which is designed to meet the special needs of
handicapped and injured students.
According to Dr. Newman, the participants in the
program range from students with mononucleosis,
sprained ankles and broken lingers to amputees,
paraplegics and people with heart conditions.
Thirty-one students in the special classes and over 75
in the regular physical education classes are currently
participating in the program.
There are four main advantages of the special classes.
according to Dr. Newman. The classes guarantee
emotional and physical protection for the students.
Students are allowed to progress at their own rate and
later join regular physical education classes.
Individual needs of the students, such as specific
exercises, can be accommodated. since the
instructor-student ratio is low.
Dr. Newman said that 50 percent of the overcuts and
75 percent of the instances of students dropping
required physical education without a grade could be
eliminated if students realized the program existed. The
special program protects a student's time investment by
allowing him to complete the course despite an injury.
One indication of the progress in the program is the
reduced number of students deferred completely from
required physical education. According to Dr. Newman,
there were about 40 students deferred eight years ago.
Recently, the average has dwindled to 10. falling
occasionally to a low of five.
Individual success stories are plentiful. Several totally
blind students have passed the swimming test. One also
took a course in fencing and learned to dive off the high
dive in addition to passing the swimming lest.
One girl who was missing an arm mastered all the
swimmins strokes and passed the lifesavinu and water
Dr. Newman said Ihese individual successes can't be
attributed entirely to the program but the program did
allow the students to develop their skills.
There are ll) plnsical education majors, primarily
graduate students, who assist Newman in in the special
classes of the adaptive program by working with the
students as part of certain course requirements.
-"This has a two-fold benefit." explained Dr. Newman.
"The handicapped students are getting training and
corrective work, and the majors are getting the
expeiien.ee of working with these people."
He said that using the majors has widened the scope
of the program by greatly reducing the
instructor-student ratio. Before he had additional help.
Newman had to have larger classes which, for safety
reasons, reduced the variety of activities. The physical
education majors' area of proficiency is the main
consideration in assigning instructors to students, though
the schedules of the people involved are also considered.
"In most cases'. I would prefer to have the individuals
in regular classes, unless there is a specific reason to
place them in a special class." said Dr. Newman.
Two advantages of a regular class include an
association with other students and the mutual
adjustment of handicapped and regular students.
According to Newman, the rest of the students do not
usually realize that the injured or handicapped siudenis
are special cases.
Dr. Newman is. pleased with the facilities available to
the program, but would like to see the removal ol
architectural barriers around the gym which make it
difficult for handicapped persons to get around.
Any student at the University with a pecial problem
related to physical education is eligible for the program.

North Carolina moved a step closer to
liquor by the drink Wednesday when the
N.C. House approved the second reading
of a bill calling for a state-wide
referendum on the matter. Final House
approval tod ly should be a formality.
The roll call vote was 66 to 49 in favor
of the measure, a committee substitute
for a bill introduced by Rep. Sam
Johnson, D-Wake County. Passage was
assured when an amendment supported
by Rev. Coy Privette, president of the
Christian Action League, was adopted by
The amendment requires that a
state-wide referendum be held November
6, 1973. If the voters approve the sale o
mixed drinks, then only counties which
presently have ABC systems of their own,
or which have municipal ABC systems,
will be able to sell mixed drinks.
Two methods which counties could use
to permit mixed drink sales were
provided in the amendment. The county
commissioners could petition the State
ABC Board for permission to allow mixed
drink sales, or 20 percent of the county's
voters could petition for a county-wide
referendum on the question.
The original bill would have provided
for a state-wide referendum on the
question of whether to allow individual
counties to hold their own mixed drink
Privette said . that the amendment
would put the mixed drink question
directly before the people and that he
was confident that they would defeat the
sale of mixed drinks. .
Once the amendment was adopted, it
became clear that the pro-liquor forces
would win. All other amendments
proposed, including one to forbid the sale
of mixed drinks within 500 feet of a
school, church or day care center, were
The bill would allow only restaurants
with a Grade A rating and a minimum
seating capacity of 36 people to sell
mixed drinks. Brown-bagging would be
eliminated at such restaurants, but not
elsewhere in the counties in question.
An amendment proposed by Rep.
Sandy Harris, D-Alamance County, to
require that liquor be dispensed from 1.6
ounce "minibottles" was defeated.
Both Orange County representatives,
Patricia Stanford Hunt and Ed Holmes,
voted for minibottles.
Most of the two hours spent on the bill
were used in debating various
amendments. Only four speakers actually
spok& on the bill. Rep. Jimmy Love,
D-Lee County, chairman of the House
ABC Committee, supported the measure
saying, "This bill will put the issue
squarely before the people of this state."
Rep. Sam Bundy, D-Pitt County, was
one of the two opposition speakers.
Bundy charged that allowing sale of
liquor by the drink would increase per
capita liquor consumption in the state.
He also charged that the measure was
not necessary for tourism. "If it takes
whiskey to lure people to this state," he
said, "then I say let them stay home."
Rep. Robert . Beard, R-Catawba
County, countered Bundy's consumption
argument by saying that Alabama has had"
liquor by the drink since 1937, but ranks
last among the states in per capita liquor
If the bill receives final approval by the
House today, it must still go to the
Rep. Hunt voted for the bill. Rep.
Holmes voted against it.

meet journalistic criteria nor did it
represent all the students on campus. He
