CLINTON Republican Sen. Jesse
Helms took the offensive in his re
election campaign against Gov. Jim Hunt
Saturday night during a news conference
at the Sampson County Airport.
Helms said Hunt did little to assist the
successful passage of the federal tobacco
program earlier this year.
"I think it's time to discuss the issues
as they are and not go around and throw
little hand grenades trying to confuse the
people on issues such as the cigarette
tax," Helms said. "He knows what the
facts are, and the governor knows he
didn't lift a finger
when we were try
ing to work out
approved a tax

federal excise tax
next year on
cigarettes to 12
cents a pack from
"Senator (Walter) Huddleston (D-Ky.)
tried an entire day to reach Governor
Hunt to ask him to work with the
Democrats and Governor Hunt never
returned his call.. .If only he could have
helped us more on the House side. None
of the damage to the tobacco program
happened in the Senate the House put
on the tax, and the House is not controll
ed by the Republicans."
Asked about Hunt's stand on defense
as compared to his own, Helms said,
"Who knows? Governor Hunt, bless his
heart, is a nice fellow and I like him a lot,
but he reminds me of a windshield wiper
one place one day and another the
Hunt, who supports U.S. intervention
in Central America, has come under fire
from some Democrats who see his views
on defense no different from Helms.'
"So many politicians find it politically
fashionable to find out which way the
crowd is going and rush, out to lead it,"
Helms said. "Governor Hunt un
doubtedly found out that the people of
North Carolina and America for that
matter are in favor of a strong national
defense. So he has abandoned his friends
with whom he previously stood the
(nuclear) freeze people and all the rest.
You can't be two places at once."
Recent Helms ads linking Hunt to na
tional black leaders are not racist, the
senator said. "Jesse Jackson came to this
state with the announced purpose, as he
put it, of putting Jesse Helms out of work
in 1984. He met with Gov. Hunt and an
nounced he was going to and did in
augurate the most massive voter registra
tion drive in the state's history. So what
am I supposed to do?"
Helms said registration was being done
with taxpayers' money and that Hunt
does not represent the "rank and file
Democrat of North Carolina."
"He's locked into the gay rights move
ment, the far-out feminist crowd, the
labor union bosses and so forth. I think
the public deserves to know who is sup
porting me and anyone else running for
political office... I'm proud of everybody
who is supporting me," Helms said.
Following the news conference, Helms
spoke to 550 people at a $5-per-person
barbeque dinner held at the National
Guard Armory. Sampson County Sheriff
W.C. Fann and various and former can
didates for county commissioners and
board of education were present. The
crowd stood and clapped as the organist

Mike Beverly, program director of

the festival a success, even though a
lightning storm brought an early end to
the event. "Three of the four biggest acts
played," Beverly said.
Johnny White and the Elites, Panic
and PKM entertained until lightning
caused a sound technician to warn against
continuing the outdoor conceit because
of the danger to the musicians and to the
acoustical equipment. A disappointed
crowd booed the decision to stop, but a
downpour drove fans indoors.

Clouds loomed briefly overhead

Bikinis and multi-colored bathing suits
were standard attire, along with preppy

WINSTON SALEM An all-white
federal jury found nine Ku Klux
Klansmen and Nazis innocent Sunday of
conspiring to provoke a fight at a 1979
anti-Klan rally in Greensboro that killed
five communist demonstrators.
The jury handed down the verdicts of
innocent of conspiring to violate civil
rights at 5:09 p.m. after about 23 hours
of deliberation Friday, Saturday and
Sunday. Defendants, relatives and at
torneys wept and embraced, and Klan
leader Virgil . Griffin stuck both thumbs
in the air.
Five of the defendants also were ac
quitted of civil rights violations resulting
in individual marchers' deaths. Three
were acquitted of civil rights violations
resulting in . woundings to six
demonstrators, one was acquitted of con
spiring to intimidate witnesses after the

estimated the number of students at
this year's Springfest was an improve
ment over last, probably because of bet
ter organization and the fact that it was
planned as a one-day event. Last year's
concert was spread over Friday and
Saturday, but Friday's bands were rained
out. He said the bands were mostly local
ones, and each had a different sound,
which would cater to more people's taste.
The Springfest committee asked cam
pus police to block off a portion of
Raleigh Street. Two years ago the street
was also closed to traffic, but last year's
concert didn't warrant this safety
measure, according to campus policeman
J.E. Roberson. Roadblocks closed
Raleigh Street to traffic from Cobb Street
to the intersection, in front of.. Winston,,
By the middle of the afternoon, Con
nor Beach was packed with concertgoers
and sun worshippers, and the crowd
spread across the street to the grass
behind the Union.
Student Television filmed the event.
Beverly said the committee spent
$5,500 on Springfest, $2,800 of which
was provided by the Campus Governing
Council. The rest of the money was ob
tained through donations from various
campus residence areas and halls.
RHA gave $500 and manpower, which
Beverly said contributed to the success of
the event. RHA shared half the respon
sibility of Springfest, with HRC. Ehr
inghaus and Granville both contributed
$200; Morrison and Olde Campus
volunteered $100 each from their social
funds. Beverly expressed appreciation to
all the dormitories and residence areas
who contributed money and personnel.
Next year the CGC probably will not
help finance Springfest, because of the

Springfest coordinators may ask each

Sophomore Greg Rustin said Johnny
White and the Elites were OK, but he
preferred something more Top 40,
something everyone can relate to." He
said, "Variety in the bands is good, but it
doesn't seem like the majority of people
are paying a lot of attention to PKM."
Senior Jeff Low liked PKM. One
earnest fan tried to make his way onto the
stage during the band's performance, but
was immediately escorted-from the scene
by a burly stagehand.
Panic may have been the surprise
group of the day, Beverly said. Panic
played songs by The Fixx and Billy Idol,
as well as other popular rock bands.
Sophomore Catherine Whaling said

most because they played a variety of

The nine current and former Klansmen
and Nazis, including five of the original
defendants, were indicted last year on
federal civil rights charges after civil
rights and church groups blasted the ac

men, fired by racist fervor, plotted to
provoke a fight at the rally to disrupt it
because it was integrated. Defense
lawyers said the defendants went to the
rally only for a peaceful protest against
communism and were attacked.

certain organizations and drastic across-the-board
cuts in organizations represen
ting a small section of the student body.
No money was set aside for subsequent
appropriations next year. Student Body
Treasurer Allen Robertson said addi
tional appropriations would have to come
out of the general reserve, which is cur
rently about $14,000 below the $40,000
limit set in Article VIII, Section 2 of the
Treasury Laws. He added that only $592
was set aside for the summer CGC.
In going through the budgets of all 35
student organizations, the CGC made
$9,197 worth of additional cuts from the
budget presented by the Finance Com
mittee. The CGC used the $9,197 to fund
a variety of programs previously cut by
the Finance Committee, including $4,200
to WXYC for a United Press Interna
tional wire service and $2,400 for the
Carolina Course Review.
A number of drastic cuts proposed by
the Finance Committee, such as the $500
allocation to the Fine Arts Festival, were
accepted as proposed by the full CGC.
The FAF had asked for $22,871 in CGC
The CGC gave $900 to the Sexuality
Education and Counseling Service, which
was originally proposed to be completely
cut. SECS had requested $5,465.
, Ashley Lefler, co-chairperson of the
Fine Arts Festival, said she felt the way
she and the FAF were treated by the CGC
was wrong and unethical. "I don't think
that certain CGC members should have
come up to me before the budget hearings
and said 'Face it, there is no way you are
going to be funded, " she said. "I don't
think I or any of the organizations should
be treated this way."
Many groups were considered by some
members of the CGC as not representing
a significant section of the student body
and were appropriated $500 as an ar
bitrary figure to allow them money for
possible fund raising and a few programs.
Much of. the support for this move
