"stripped of workers and time" and was unable

the runoffs are over, but would not say for sure.

three p;dp2 counting ballots and three ballot
boxesstilf tincounted, Runge said. c -
The ballot boxes were moved to Ruffin dorm
and locked up in the social room of the dorm
early Thursday morning, Runge said.
Harwood said he called Runge and asked that
he arrange for additional students to finish the
ballot counting Thursday morning.
Although Harwood did not speak to Runge
personally, he said he was under the impression
that Runge would comply with his request.
Runge said later an exam prevented him from
assembling the ballot counters until afternoon.
When no students arrived to finish the
counting, Harwood submitted a letter of
resignation to Runge.
Runge brought the ballot boxes to his office
under the supervision of members of the
Elections Board and the Honor Court Thursday
"The only thing 1 could do was take control
myself," Runge said. "It's the most proper thing 1
could do under the circumstances. 1 don't know
how this is going to stand up in court, but it's all 1
can do. What I'm concerned about is that these
might be grounds for a challenge," he said.
At 4 p.m. Runge's office was packed with
candidates trying to find the results of their races,
and with volunteer ballot counters and members
of the Honor Court and Attorney General's staff
who were to oversee the counting.
Runge said before the counters arrived all the
ballots in every election would be recounted.
However, after some of the ballot boxes were
unlocked Daughtridge said only about one
fourth of the ballots would have to be recounted.
Campbell took the preliminary lead from Jim Cooper
and Greg Turosak, also sending the controversial race

WASHINGTON The long-awaited
indictments in the Watergate break-in and
cover-up were expected to be handed down
today by a federal grand jury that has
investigated the case for more than 20
It was reported that a number of former
close aides to President Nixon would be
indicted. CBS news said it had learned that
as many as 40 persons would be named.
Sources said it was possible the grand jury
would name Nixon as an unindicted co
conspirator in the Watergate case. It was
also reported that rather than name Nixon,

A proposed University policy
concerning students called to jury duty
is awaiting approval from the
Chancellor's office, Donald A. Boulton,
dean of Student Affairs, said Monday.
Boulton said he had sent the proposed
policy to Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor
in mid-January. However its approval
had been delayed due to the
Chancellor's heavy schedule, he said.
The student jury duty policy had
previously been unwritten, Boulton
said. He added that action to implement
an official written policy was taken after
UNC law student Gerry Cohen raised
several questions to Boulton concerning
student's performance of jury duty.
Cohen said 1 10 persons are called

Boulton said that under the previous
unwritten policy few requests for
intercession had been made by students.
He has suggested to the chancellor
that the new policy contain the
following two points:
During the period of final
examination in any semester or summer
session, the Department of Student Life
will request on behalf of the student a
deferment or postponement of jury duty
until a later time.
During the lecture period of the
semester or summer session no
deferments or postponements from jury
duty will be granted. Students will be
given written proof of jury duty to offer
professors. Faculty members will be
encouraged to provide optional "make
up experience to offset that lost by
students serving on the jury.

proposed policy with Frank Frederick,
clerk of the Superior Court in

the grand jury would hand up a
"presentment" to Chief U.S. District Judge
John J. Sirica.
A presentment would likely contain
whatever evidence had been found
concerning Nixon's role in Watergate and
would probably be ordered sealed by Sirica.
The judge has the discretion to turn such a
presentment over to the House Judiciary
Committee, which is studying impeachment
of the President.
The final roadblock to the indictments
was cleared Thursday afternoon when 12
jurors and 6 alternates were sworn in and
sequestered in the New York City perjury
and conspiracy trial of former Nixon cabinet
members John N. Mitchell and Maurice H.
Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon
Jaworski has said the indictments would
come this week, as soon as the Mitcheil
Stans jury was locked up. There were reports
that Mitchell and Stans might be named in
the Washington indictments.
The prosecutor's office would give
reporters no indication when the indictments
would be forthcoming. A spokesman for
Jaworski said reporters would be given two
hours advance notice.
