The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE Democratic Gov.
Jim Hunt and Republican Sen. Jesse
Helms faced off for their third debate
yesterday, with Helms accusing Hunt
of long-time support for liberals and
Hunt accusing Helms of failing to
support President Reagan.
Helms, in a question to Hunt, asked
about his support of Democratic
presidential candidate Fritz Mondale,
vice-presidential candidate Geraldine
Ferraro and Sen. Ted Kennedy, D
Mass. "People know that I'm supporting
Fritz Mondale for president, and that
may not be popular now, but I'm a
Democrat," Hunt responded. "I'm part
of a new generation of Democrats that
we know here in the South . . . people
who believe in three things balanced
budgets, economic growth and racial
justice and people working together.
"Those are the things that I subscribe
to regardless of who's president," Hunt
"YouVe been talking about your
support for the president," Hunt said.
He then referred to a survey that showed

N. C. Student Legislature
argues death penalty issue
By MARY BENTON HUD GENS
Staff Writer :
After three 20-minute rounds of
debate, delegates of the North Carolina
Student Legislature voted 87-28 to
reject a resolution abolishing North
Carolina's death penalty.
The death penalty resolution, spon
sored by Steve Epstein, a sophomore
from Oceanside, N.Y., would have
recommended that the N.C. General
Assembly replace the death penalty with
a mandatory life imprisonment sentence
The resolution was one of six debated
during NCSL's September Interim
Council held here Saturday and
Epstein said he was not surprised the
resolution was rejected.
"I did not have realistic hopes of this
resolution passing," Epstein said,
adding that 70 percent of North Carol
inians approved of the death penalty.
"I was hoping to get at least 20 people
to feel the way I did. The fact that I
got 28 people to vote affirmatively is
While most of the delegates rejected
the proposal, the majority of the high
school seniors interning in the council
voted in favor of the resoiution.
"I was really satisfied with the interns'
vote because they voted 7-5 in favor,
and that might be an indication that
the younger people of this state are
starting to question the death penalty,"
He said that under current North
Carolina law, a person convicted of
first-degree murder can be sentenced to
death or to life imprisonment with

"The only senator who suppported
the president less than you did among
Republicans was your friend Lowell
Weicker of Connecticut," Hunt said.
Weicker and Helms have been vocal
opponents inside the Republican Party.
"I'd say you haven't been a very good
supporter of our president."
Later, Helms again said Hunt

Hunt said he was a Democrat, but
realized the party had made mistakes
in overspending and taxing people too
"I know you're very worried that we
have some Democrats who are conser

all Democrats as liberals, but I remind
you, senator, that Thomas Jefferson
(whom Helms frequently quotes) is the
father of our party."
Helms said, "I'm glad there are
conservative Democrats. They sup
ported me in 1972 and 1978, and I think
they'll support me again this year."
Helms also challenged Hunt to
appoint a special prosecutor to inves

eligibility for parole after 20 years.

unusual punishment, and thus violates

adding that almost every other civilized

death penalty, and thus it could be
interpreted as unusual punishment by

Holley, a sophomore from Benson.
"Two wrongs certainly dont constitute

rehabilitate someone just to leave him

Religious arguments also surfaced in
" Thou shalt not kill is the surest

said, adding that the greater the sin the
greater the need for repentance.
A UNC-Charlotte delegate disputed
Epstein's religious argument, stating
that by Old Testament law, Jews were
under obligation to put to death those
who committed certain crimes.
Epstein's final reason for abolishing
the death penalty was that execution

FOXBORO, Mass. It took only
one quarter of football for the North
Carolina Tar Heels to find out what
all the fuss is about around Boston these
days. And Doug Flutie, the Boston
College quarterback who has become
the toast of Massachusetts, spent four
quarters showing UNC what it's all
about Saturday night in Sullivan
Flutie shredded every coverage the
UNC defense utilized, throwing for 354
yards and a school-record six touch
downs as the Eagles broke away early
and were never challenged, coasting to
a 52-20 victory.
The Tar Heels, who scored all of then
points in the second half, dropped to
0-2, the worst start since 1969. B.C.

break before its next encounter against
Flutie, the 5-9 senior who was third
in the country in the Heisman trophy
balloting last year and is a top candidate
this year, had absolutely no problems
with a UNC defense that opted not to
rush him. He completed 28 of 38 passes,
had no interceptions, and most of the
incompletions were very catchable balls.
The Eagles moved the ball at will in
the first half to build an insurmountable
28-0 by the intermission. UNC's offense,

York, he has maintained ties to the
University and has returned often. His
gifts tothe University include a rare
portrait of his old colleague Wolfe.
"I love the University," he said. "I
don't think there's any school that
compares with it." Hettleman said that

Anthony, sputtered on numerous occa
sions and missed two field goals before
the half. Anthony went the distance for
UNC, as freshman Mark Maye was
sidelined with a sore shoulder.
In the second half, UNC moved the
ball more efficiently, as tailback Ethan
Horton broke loose on a 79-yard
touchdown run and had 162 yards on
the game. But B.C. countered every
UNC score, effectively killing any
chance of a dramatic rally.
UNC coach Dick Crum, although
disappointed, was anything but sur
prised. "Right now we are not in their
class," Crum said of his young team,
adding that he wasn't surprised B.C.
scored so many points. "(B.C.) had great
execution and really played well. From
the way their offense is orchestrated,
they may well be the best we've ever
played. WeVe played teams that are
bigger and stronger, but (B.C. coach
Jack Bicknell) does an outstanding job
with this team."
The Tar Heels chose to lay off Flutie,
fearing that a blitzing defense would
force him out of the pocket and allow
him to make the big plays on the
scramble, something that has become

way to go," said defensive coordinator
Denny Marcin. "We had a couple of

Jay Klompmaker, a professor of
business administration and also a
friend of Hettleman's, said he was a very
successful businessman, but not of the
ruthless variety. "He values friendship,"
Klompmaker said. "When he measures
a person, he looks for substance. What
is important to Phil is what type of
person you are."

Tailback Troy Stratford found the open
hole and rushed 109 yards on just 17
carries, including the first five plays of
the game when he got the Eagles out
of a hole at their own one-yard line.
"Troy Stratford makes something
happen every time he touches the ball,"
Flutie said. "We like to call him The
Producer because he always comes
through when called upon." Flutie was
proud of his performance, but admitted
there was an added incentive. "We had
a little revenge in mind," he said,

The School of Business Administra
tion has recieved a $250,000 endowment
from a member of that school's first
Phillip Hettleman, a 1921 graduate,
gave the award as a professorship. The
endowment was announced Sept. 14 at
a dinner honoring Hettlemen at the
Hettlemen said last week that he was
also establishing a yearly award for the
University's outstanding young faculty
member. This award, Hettleman said,
will go to the young faculty member
who shows the most work and
The faculty award, he said, is similar
to the one he established at Columbia
University, where he earned a master's
degree in finance.
Hettleman, a native of Goldsboro, is
an investment broker in New York. In
1977, he received UNC's Distinguished
DTH Charles Ledford
His longest pass covered 28 yards, a fact
that Marcin said could be one of the
game's few bright spots.
"We didn't give up the big play," he
said. "Shoot, they let Horton loose for
79 yards in one play."
If the Tar Heels ever had a chance
to make a game of this, that opportunity
came in the first five minutes. B.C.
started the game from its own one-yard
line after returner Kevin Sullivan
touched the opening kickoff on its way
out of boudns. Five plays later, the
Eagles punted. UNC moved down to
the B.C. 25, but the drive stalled and
Lee Gliarmis missed a field goal wide.
The Eagles then rolled to two easy
touchdowns, packing away UNC for the
"That was a great opportunity to set
some momentum," Anthony said. "But
it just didnt wourk out."
Anthony said the UNC defense got
in trouble because ii spent so much time
on the field. "We were having too many
three-play drives in the first half and
the defense was going back on the field
"But we've got a really good offence
and it's important that we come back
next week and put together two halves
of football. The last two weeks weVe
really played only one good half."
Horton's performance was oversha
dowed by that of Flutie. Horton
accounted for 225 of UNC's 442 yards.
John Evans, dean of the School of
Business Administration, said the
professorship had a special meaning for
the school. "It is a very meaningful vote
of confidence in the school to have
someone who was involved in the first
(graduating) class helping to assure the
school's high quality," he said.
The endowment, Evans said, will go
to an outstanding member of the
school's faculty or will be used to attract
a new professor of national reputation.
It will be awarded in 1985, he said.
Chancellor Christopher C. Ford ham
III said, "The University is very proud
to have a professorship that carries the
name of such a distinguished and
energetic business leader and a man who
has been one of UNC's most loyal
alumni over more than 60 years."
Hettleman enrolled at the University
in 1918. He became editor of the
Carolina Magazine and the business
manager of The Daily Tar Heel.
