is out of race
By WAYNE THOMPSON
Insurance Commissioner candidate Jim Long got what he
called "a late Christmas present" 1:30 Thursday afternoon
when -gubernatorial candidate John Ingram announced in
Greensboro that he would remain in the governor's race and
would not seek re-election as insurance commissioner.
"My thesis was that Ingram had strong support and would be
able to attempt it," Long said of specualtion that Ingram would
use a North Carolina law, General
Statute 163-122, to challenge him in the
Under the statute, a gubernatorial can
didate whose name is already on the
primary ballot for that office could run
for a different office in the general elec
tion as an unaffiliated candidate.
Long, during an interview Thursday,
said he heard Ingram make the remark
before the N.C. Association of Farm
Mutuals, a group of small insurance com
Z ' '
s , -
panies set up by farmers.
He played a tape he had made of Ingram's comments.
"We've got a rumor circulating ... you hear now and then
that I could be the insurance commissioner in 1985," Ingram
said. "But I tell you here today, that I have run for insurance
commissioner the last time that I'll ever run for that office. I will
be never be insurance commissioner again after January of next
Long said he was satisfied that Ingram would not run against
him only after he heard Ingram Thursday. .
"It bothered me until 1:30," Long said. "Now that I heard it
in person, I believe him.
"When you start putting it on the record, I presume that
you're stepping down."
Long, former state representative and chief deputy commis
sioner of insurance, said he was relieved that his campaign now
could proceed without Ingram's "shadow" a large cadre of
loyal supporters who always vote for Ingram.
He said deregulation of financial institutions was the main
problem facing the insurance industry in the next four years.
"When local banks and brokerage firms start getting into in
surance, you start raising some serious problems," he said.
Long cited the example of Baldwin-United, a financial ser
vices company in the insurance business, as what can happen to
consumers when they buy policies from brokerage houses and
Long said Baldwin enticed consumers with an exorbitantly
high 17 percent interest rate, which brought in $182 million in
premiums. But because of the high rate of interest, the company
lost money and now is in rehabilitation, the insurance industry
equivalent of bankruptcy.
Long said other platform issues include putting insurance
policies in readable language, providing consumers with guides
detailing differences between coverages and-strengthening the
department's auditing of insurance companies to be sure the
companies are financially strong.

CGC allocation to clubs
By BEN PERKOWSKI
The Campus Governing Council will
have about. $210,000 to allocate to stu
dent organizations for the fiscal year
1984-85, as compared to $272,248 which
was allocated during the 1983-84 fiscal
year budget hearings, according to Stu
dent Body Treasurer Allen Robertson.
This means the Finance Committee,
presently conducting budget hearings
through April 9, will have to make about
a 25 percent cut in total allocations from
last year, Robertson said. He added that
the $210,000 figure did not include
$15,000 tentatively set aside for subse
quent appropriations next year.
Therefore the total budget for next
fiscal year comes to about $225,000
which is the amount expected from stu
dent fees for the coming two summer
sessions and the 1984-85 academic year,
Robertson said. "This figure is correct
assuming that enrollment remains about
the same next year," he said.
Robertson said he expected the com
bined funds of Student Government in
cash at the Student Activities Fund Of
fice and in the Investment to exceed
$40,000 by the end of the 1984-85 fiscal
year. "Of course, that's if all our
assumptions are correct," he addded.

of Henderson Residence College, said
this year's event will last only one day,
instead of two like last year.
"We decided to make it a one-day
event this year," he said. "Last year it
was on a Friday and Saturday, but
Friday was rained out, so we had to
cram all the bands in on one day. It
turned out OK, though."

Year's fifth sex assault
By MELANIE WELLS
A woman reported to Chapel Hill
police Wednesday that a man attempted
to sexually assault her Wednesday morn
ing while she was near Umstead Park, the
same area where four women have been
raped in the past year.
. The woman said she was walking near
the park at about 9:15 a.m. when a black
man wearing a stocking mask grabbed
her by the throat, threatened her with an
ice pick and attempted to assault her sex
ually. The woman escaped uninjured and
the suspect fled the area on foot.
The man was described as 6 feet tall
and weighing 160-165 pounds.
Chapel Hill Police Officer Gregg Jarvies
said police were not sure if that was the
same man who was suspected in four
other Airport Road area rapes, because
of the differences in witnesses' physical
descriptions, the time of day the attemp
ted assault occur ed and the difference in
the weapons used.
The suspect in the four previous rapes
was described as a black man in his 20's
or 30's, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 170-185
pounds and usually clean-shaven.
Police Chief Herman L. Stone also
said the four previous assaults occured
very late at night, and the suspect used a
knife as a weapon.
Stone said he heard of another similar
incident in the Airport Road area Sun
day, but nothing had been documented.
N.C. applies for relief after
tornadoes devastate area
The Associated Press
CLINTON Rescue workers dredged
ponds and searched piles of rubble Thurs
day for more victims of a line of tor
nadoes that hopscotched across a
250-mile path in eastern North Carolina,
leaving at least 44 dead.
The storm caused millions of dollars in ;
damage, injured at least 801 and left
some 2,279 homeless, officials said
"This is the worst natural disaster
we've had in a hundred years in North
Carolina," Gov. Jim Hunt said as he
toured rubble near Maxton in Robeson
County. "It's just a horrible, horrible
Hunt, who used a helicopter to follow
the path of the storm that was littered
with snapped trees and shattered dwell
ings, said the destruction totaled in the
"millions and millions."
Hunt said he would ask President
Reagan to declare the area a disaster area
and state officials worked to speed the
disaster relief to the storm victims.
State officials said the number of dead
was 59 at one point Thursday. The
number was lowered to 48 and then raised
to 50 as they struggled to confirm deaths,
said Russ Edmonston, spokesman for the
N.C. Department of Crime Control and
Public Safety. Later, the figure was
lowered to 43 after it was determined
local rescue squads may have found vic
tims in one county and transported them
to hospitals in another county. The latest
count was reported shortly after 7 p.m.
Richard Jones of the National Weather
Service in Raleigh said 12 tornado
sightings were confirmed Wednesday
night, but said "We don't know how
many actual twisters there were; they can
drop down in several points."
Twelve people were killed in Sampson
County, where winds demolished sections
of Clinton. The following deaths were
reported in these counties: eight in Pitt,
eight in Greene, six in Bertie, four in
Wayne, three in Robeson, two each in
Scotland, Gates and Lenoir and one each
in Hertford, Perquimmans anH
..uiuership dues. But the society was
hoping that enough support could be
generated on campus to renew the pro
ject, which they felt was valuable to
students. In the future, Phi Eta Sigma
will not apply for any financial aid from
the CGC, she said.
Interest in the publication has come
from two sources: the Student Consumer
Action Union, and a freshman named
Mary Campbell Jenkins.
SCAU and Jenkins are corroborating
to produce the revised version. Owens
said SCAU originally planned to print a
subjective evaluation of courses in
booklet form. SCAU currently publishes
The Southern Part of Heaven, a guide to
area housing, The Franklin Street
Gourmet, a restaurant textbook for
Chapel Hill, Residency Counseling and
The Consumer Map. SCAU learned
Jenkins had received approval from the
CGC for a plan to publish an objective
type review; her application for funds
received a high priority rating of one on a
scale of one to five for financial aid.
"We're having to put together a lot of
bits and pieces," he said.
Stone said he wanted area residents to
be alert. "We want people to be concern
ed, but not overly alarmed," he said.
Many students, especially women, liv
ing in the Airport Road-Umstead Park
area are taking extra safety precautions.
"Not enough people know about
this," said Katherine Schultz, a junior at
UNC and a resident of Colonial Arms
apartment on Hillsborough Street. She
said she had heard about several of the in
cidents and had recently secured her win
dows. "There are lots of rumors flying
around that the guy is a jogger or
something my roommates and I don't
walk in the area alone anymore."
Mary Ann Chap of the Rape Crisis
Center said they knew of the same four
assaults that the police department had
on record. She said the center received
calls about the assaults, but that several
had been "blind reports", which meant
the callers did not identify themselves.
Lt. Ralph Pendergraph of the Chapel
Hill police department said they were get

mation. He said anyone who had infor
mation about any sexual assault and
could trace it to a source, should en

Maxton was leveled by the storm, said he

said. "We were all praying,"
Edmonston said people-'-came: fo

65,000 people without power, but that
power was restored to 55,000. Restora

damage was severe would take time, he
More than 525 National Guardsmen
were deployed across the state, along with
about 100 state troopers. Some 250 of the
troops were sent to Maxton and Red Spr
ings to guard against looting, while the
state troopers sealed off the area.
"Everybody's in a state of shock in
that area," said Robeson County
Manager Paul Graham.
To the northeast, near Greenville, the
Taylor's Estates trailer park was ripped
apart by the funnel clouds, with an
estimated 100 mobile homes destroyed.
Near the trailer park, ponds were
dredged for bodies and workers sifted
through piles of twisted metal and wood
looking for more victims.
Some of the worst damage in Sampson
County occurred in Roseboro, where
winds flattened a large number of homes
and destroyed a brick plant.
The winds turned over a tractor trailer
rig at Boren Brick Co. and pushed five
railroad boxcars off the tracks at a siding.
The winds also destroyed farm buildings
used to shelter hogs and turkeys and
farmers scrambled to load the living
animals into trailers.
"I've seen three head of cattle dead so
far," said farmer Travis Gilchrist. "I've

Jenkins and SCAU will combine their
ideas and produce a two-part description:
a subjective evaluation of teachers,
courses and departments, and an objec

SCAU has applied for $5,000 in finan
cial support from the CGC, and SCAU
chairman Jim Toner said he is optimistic
about the request being granted. .
"Overall, the CGC thought the format
yof the course description was a good
idea," he said because it preserves the in
tent of fairness which has evidenced in
the Phi Eta Sigma Course Description.
Owens said the edition to be published
next year will be "sort of liketa Franklin
Street Gourmet" of courses and pro
fessors at UNC. Since the students at
UNC are consumers of education, Owens
said, a course description is a 'valuable
resource when selecting classes and a
valid project for SCAU.
