Bush visits Asheville,
opens NC. campaign
By WAYNE THOMPSON
ASHEVILLE Vice President
George Bush said Friday that the re
election of Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C. was
an "absolute priority" of the White
House in 1984, and he added that the
state's Republicans who are up for re
election will get special attention from the
Reagan-Bush election committee.

Bush said that Reagan might visit
North Carolina during the campaign.
"We take nothing for granted," he said.
"North Carolina is the 10th largest state
and is very, very important."
When asked about the Democratic
Party's statewide registration blitz, Bush
said, "It's like Custer at the Little Big
Horn. There's more of them (Democrats)
that there's of us, and yet, Senator Helms
has a way of picking up Democratic

John Glenn to withdraw from the

from Glenn's Democratic backers. "I'm
here to welcome the North Carolina
Democrats to join us with those North
Carolina family values."
In addition to the 20-minute news con

Inn, Bush attended a private reception

CGC changes Honor Code
to recognize problems
By BEN PERKOWSKI
The Campus Governing Council's
decision last Wednesday to amend an ar
ticle of the Instrument of Student Judicial
Governance so that it is now an offense
of the Honor Code to repeatedly abuse
someone verbally with the intent to cause
severe mental or emotional distress pro
bably will not have a significant effect on
the number of cases in the Undergraduate
Honor Court, according to former Stu
dent Body Attorney General Hunter
Before the amendment, it was an of
fense only if the abuse involved physical
contact or direct threats. It is now an of
fense, as the amendment reads, to "inten
tionally inflict severe mental or emotional
distress upon a person through a course
of conduct involving repreated abuse or
disparagement of t that person's race,
religion, creed, sex, sexual preference,
age, national origin or disability."
As last year's Attorney General,
Hoover was responsible for bringing
possible cases of Honor Code violations
before the Undergraduate Court. Last
Wednesday the CGC approved Keith
Johnson as the new Attorney General.
"I think I had only one cause last year
that, if there had been the amendment
then, I could have continued my in
vestigation into the situation," Hoover
said. "In that case I couldn't do anything
because the accused did not touch or
threaten the person."
Hoover said it would be difficult to
convict someone under this amendment
for two reasons. "It has to be shown that
the accused had intentions to cause
distress; in other words, it has to be
shown that the person wasn't just joking
around," he said. "Also, it has to be
shown that there was an intention to
cause (severe) distress and the abuse has
to be done again and again.
"What this means is that the abuse has
to be fairly flagrant just to meet the pro
visions of the amendment," Hoover said.
He said the real difficulty would be in
trying to prove someone's intent. "What
you have to do is determine someone's
state of mind and no one knows that," he
explained. "To convict someone you
have to deal with extraneous factors such
Hoover said that for a successful trial
in such cases everybody would have to be
honest. He said the problem would be
that "the accused will probably say they
were just kidding and, as I've said, it is
very difficult to prove intent.
what's wrong about this country," Bush
said of leading Democratic contenders
Gary Hart and Walter Mondale. "We
need people telling us what's right about
this country: America is back and Ronald
Reagan has brought us back.
"In two years we got it (the economy)
turned around," he said. "We created
700,000 jobs last month.
"In 1982, the Democrats were going to
create 300,000 jobs by spending $3.5
"I can see the misery now . of
Democratic strategists, raying, 'What if
these deficits drop?' It's fantastic."
Bush credited Reagan for the low infla
tion rate. "If inflation had kept up at the
Jimmy Carter pace, you'd be paying
$3.60 a pound for hamburger."
The president's defense policy has
made America safer, he said. "The presi
dent's firmness and decisiveness has made
our adversaries come to the understan
ding, whether they like him or not, that
he is a president they can respect. The
way you deter agression is to keep the
United States of America strong."
Conspicuously absent from Bush's
remarks during the day was gubernatorial
candidate Jirri Martin, who was kept off
the state party's strong Reagan delegation
in 1976 because he supported Ford. "I
sure hope we win the state house with a
Republican governor," was Bush's only
mention of Martin.
Asked about what Helms strategist
Tom Ellis' unsuccessful efforts to find a
more conservative candidate for governor
would do to the unity of the Republican
effort in the state, Bush said he couldn't
give an answer. "You better ask Mr.
Helms or Mr. Martin about that. The last
thing I need to do is butt in with what
seems a complicated situation. I'm not
ducking it, but I don't know anything
Helms, who appeared with Bush dur
ing the vice president's stopover en route
to Washington from Jackson, Miss., said
in an interview he did not know that Ellis
had looked for a more conservative can
didate. "I was out early saying I was in
favor of Jim Martin," Helms said.
Helms, when asked about his latest
campaign ad which blasts Gov. Jim Hunt
for visiting New York City to raise funds,
replied "The real point is that a U.S.
Senator is precisely that."
"What's at issue in there cases is the
accused, what they were trying to do," he
added. "The victim, no matter how emo
tional they might become, is almost irrele
vant." Hoover explained that despite the dif
ficulty, successful trials -were possible.
"The situation has to be analyzed really
well and someone has to be asking the
right questions," he said.-
Sarah Raper, chairperson of the
Undergraduate Court, said she did not
expect many cases to occur under this
amendment, but that was not the purpose
of its inclusion.
"We felt that this type of offense was
not covered by the Student Judicial
Governance, but should be recognized by
the University," she said.
When the amendment was brought
before the CGC the point was raised that
the wording might be too vague. Raper
"I think the concept itself is hard to pin
down in words," she said. "The wording
is as specific as it can be, the rest is up to
the interpretation of the Attorney
General and the Undergraduate Court."
Raper said that because the offense
would be non-academic the Court has no
set sanctions to follow, as with academic
offenses. "It would depend on the nature
of what occurred and the severity of the
victim's reaction," she said.
On the same bill the CGC voted that
"Disciplinary files and records of cases
that resulted in "not guilty" findings will
be destroyed immediately after the hear
ing that rendered the "not guilty" ver
dict." Hoover said the decision would have
primarily an administrative impact.
"There are files just sitting around with
no reason to keep them," he said. "There
will be no change in court procedure
because of the decision."
He said past cases involving a person
before the Undergraduate Court could
not be referred to during a trial. "Even if
a person has been before the Court
several times for the same reason but has
been found "not guilty" each time, those
past cases cannot be used before the
Court," he said. This procedure was not
affected by the amendment Hoover add
ed. The bill the CGC approved also stated
that "disciplinary files and records on
other adjudicated cases will be maintain
ed for 10 years after all appeal rights have
expired or have been exhausted, and then
destroyed. Files on pending cases will be
' maintained indefinitely."

The UNC Faculty Council voted
unanimously Friday to recommend that
University Housing initiate an experimen
tal dormitory floor on North Campus
having a 5050 minority white racial
population, and urged University Hous
ing to develop a policy for freshman ap
plicants which would encourage integra
tion but still allow for freedom of choice.
A report, submitted by the committee
on the status of , minorities and the disad
vantaged, also recommended that the
University take immediate steps to hire
American Indians, recruit American In
dian students and expand American In
dian history and culture courses.
The new dormitory floor would be ex
perimental and completely voluntary,
said William T. Small, chairman of the
committee. "Given time, it might prove
to be beneficial to other parts of the cam

Class of 1984 plans to fund
building of Visitors Center

The class of 1984 has raised about
$112,000 in pledges to build a Visitors
Center as a class gift, said .William
Massey of Carolina Annual Giving.
"It is the largest five year pledge gift
ever given by any graduating class of any
university, public or private," Massey
The 702 seniors who agreed to pledge
will give $10 in 1984, $20 in 1985, $25 in
1986, $40 in 1987 and $50 in 1988.

"I'm hoping the (housing) pattern

said. "I know that's wishful thinking.
"North Campus tends to. be almost
void of black students," he said. The
committee met with student leaders to
discuss housing integration and was given
several reasons why blacks preferred
South Campus. Among the reasons are
the feeling of not being isolated, being in
an environment similar to home, and the
satisfaction of living in a more modern
dormitory, the report said.
Regarding the status of American In

Sparks said plans began in October
when class officers found that a Visitors
Center had been on the University's back

felt liberal in hoping to raise $40,000 to
initiate the process.-
"Right before, we started making
phone calls, it really hit me, I had no idea
how we'd come out," Sparks said. "I got
scared we'd really put our necks on the
