tragic if we had to wait until next fall to

speakers rather than to the Symposium
and thus not adding to the Symposium's
fund raising totals. The outside checks
would be itemized and the amount would
be deducted from the budget categories
the Symposium chooses.
The committee also opened up a
category to allow the Symposium to use
their surplus funds to make a permanent

videotaped and printed up in a journal
Concerning late requisitions filed by
the Symposium, the Finance Committee
agreed to consider three phone bills for

be called to discuss a course of action.

Mondale, the one-time front-runner,

Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III an
nounced last Thursday that he would allow the
display of the Morehead Planetarium's six-pointed
Fordham said the recent Supreme Court ruling
that yuletide nativity scenes displayed by local
governments did not violate the constitutional
separation of church and state "appears to resolve
the question, and the chancellor's directive has
Fordham had ordered the star removed from
atop the planetarium in December 1982 after a
UNC law professor, Barry Nakell, claimed its use
violated the constitutional separation of church
Lee Shapiro, planetarium director, said Ford
ham's decision meant "we can go ahead with our
'plans to put the star up in May." The star will pro
bably be put up the entire month of May to help
advertise a program called, "Here is astronomy
shining in Chapel Hill," part of the planetarium's
35th birthday celebration, he said.
The decision also means the star will be erected
again this Christmas to advertise the planetarium's
annual "Star of Bethlehem" show, Shapiro said.
The star, which Shapiro contended was used for
advertising purposes and not as a religious symbol,
had been used for the Christmas show for more
than 30 years until its removal in 1982.
Nakell, contacted Monday in Boulder, Colo.,
where he is teaching this year, said Fordham's
decision was "premature" and "unnecessary." "I
don't agree with it, but I do understand it."
Nakell said the issue raised in the Supreme
Court case, which was concerned with the use of a
city-owned nativity scene in Pawtucket, R.I., was
different from the issue involved in the use of the
He said he disagreed with the Supreme Court
ruling and felt that because the star was a solitary
display it was more difficult to argue that it was
secular than the display of the nativity.
"If the star is not a religious symbol then I have
no problem with it," he added.
Daniel Pollitt, a UNC law professor, said he
also disagreed with Fordham's decision and said
the Supreme Court ruling was not the major issue.
"I think the point is that the star is a religious sym
bol which is offensive to certain members of the
academic community," he said.
UNC law professor Eugene Gressman said, "I
think Fordham's decision is probably legitimate on
its own two feet. He didn't need the Supreme
Winters dispells doubts about
seriousness of his campaign
By WAYNE THOMPSON
More than a month after his Feb. 6 filing as a candidate in the
4th District congressional race for the Democratic nomination,
John W. Winters Jr. of Raleigh last week dispelled doubts about
the seriousness of his candidacy and whether it would neutralize
the strength of the black vote in defeating incumbent Rep. Ike
"Some people perceive my decision to run in different fashion
(other than as a legitimate candidate)," Winters, a Raleigh real
estate developer, told reporters at a news conference last week in
Raleigh. "Some assume I had a grudge or grievance with
Howard Lee, which was untrue. Some rumored that I had been
paid to jeopardize the Lee campaign. This is filth."
Lee, who is black, is former mayor of Chapel Hill and state
secretary of Natural Resources and Community Development.
Lee and Andrews were the first candidates in the race, and
Winters filed 20 minutes before the deadline on Feb. 6.
Political analysts have said that Winters' candidacy could
tend to hurt Lee's chances an analysis Lee himself seemed to
support when asked last week about Winters' remarks.
"I think it is unfortunate that a campaign has to be clouded
by these kinds of uncertainties," Lee said. "I think it is a fact
that whenever two blacks are running in the same race, some
votes which might go to one candidate could go to another.
"But I don't know that he's (Winters) only taking votes from
me. He could also be taking votes from Ike Andrews."
Wipters, who said he made the decision to stay in the race last
week after canvassing his support in the 4th District, said he
planned to offer voters "an independent person."
"I am my own man," he said. "I don't have the backing of
any special interest, and I plan to take this attitude to the
. As examples of special interests influencing his opponents.
Winters said the Andrews campaign had received contributions
from political action committees tied to Chicago realtors,
organized labor in North Carolina and the National Education
When asked what special interestsLee represented, Winters
said once the campaign started, voters would be able to tell.
Later in his news conference, however, Winters was more
"The campaign was only a week old before Howard made
promises to the teachers of higher salaries," he said, also decry
ing Lee's endorsement from the state AFL-CIO.
"The thing that bothers me is that each of these endorsements
require allegiance to a certain voting pattern,", he said. Winters
said any possible support he would garner from political action
committees would depend "on which groups they represent."
Despite a brief speech in which Winters decried the massive
federal budget deficits and cost overruns on defense department
projects, most of Winters' remarks centered oh the political ef-.
feet of his dual candidacy with Lee as a black primary challenger.
According to N.C. Secretary of State' Thad Eure, the 4th
District race marks the first time in the state's congressional
primary history in which a white candidate has been pitted
against two blacks.
Saying, that a purpose of the news conference was to
downplay the race issue and offer "new views on the issues,"
Winters scolded the news media for their coverage of his cam
paign. Winters also said his entry into the race could have been
sparked by a perception in the black community that Lee would
not represent its interests.
"Prior to my filing, there were some indications in the black
community in Raleigh that Howard might not get the black
vote. This was said to him directly."
Winters said there was little difference between Lee and An
drews on the issues. "1 happened to hear a commentary of
Howard Lee's in Randolph County in which he said there was
no significant difference in his views and Ike Andrews.
"I will offer different views." Asked to cite a difference bet
ween himself and Andrews on an issue, Winters said Andrews
voted against a bill in July 1983 that provided health care for the
jobless. Winters also cited Andrews support of the Reagan
budget package in 1982.

Rollie Tillman, vice chancellor for University

As to whether or not the Supreme Court deci

ter of judgement.
"Chancellor Fordham just wanted to be extra
careful he was making the correct decision," he
"I'm happy to see the issue resolved in time to

While Tar Heel students scattered
across the Florida coast in quest of sun
shine and good times, sought refuge at
home for a little rest and relaxation or
took advantage of a week's opportunity
to earn some extra cash, something new
hit Chapel Hill. .
Yes, a new beer dared to enter the
realms of Chapel Hill with UNC students
away on Spring Break.
Lone Star beer, "the national beer of
Texas," entered area bars and stores hop
ing to bring a bit of the west to the east
Lone Star, which has been around
since 1840, has done extremely well in
college, young adult and rural market
areas, said Drew Nealeans, general
manager of Lamb Distributing Com
pany. The beer's cowboy image has been
nurtured by appearances in movies such
as Urban Cowboy and Silk wood. Charlie
Daniels and Willie Nelson have also add
ed to Lone Star's reputation by mention
ing the beer in their songs.
Several area merchants said they
thought students would be willing' to try
the latest addition to their beer selections.
The overwhelfning response to Coors
beer served as an example of students
willingness to try new brands, an
employee of Tarheel Party Store said.
