Students boycott speech, refuse
The Associated Press
SALISBURY Republican Sen.
Jesse Helms said students refusing to
shake his hand and boycotting his first
campaign speech at a black college
yesterday were "shooting themselves in
"You'd better start listening to people
you think you don't agree with," Helms
said to scattered applause from about
100 people in the Livingston College
auditorium as about 200 students
boycotting the speech at the 750-student
school linked arms outside.
"Whether you vote for me or not
I know you won't you should wake
up and realize the Democratic Party has
been jerking you around for 35 years,"
he told the students. "You don't want
to be a captive of the welfare system
. . . you want jobs. You're locked into
a situation you don't want. You have
the greatest amount to gain from a free
economy and the two-party system."
Helms said he hoped all races would
unite after the election in an "under
standing" based on faith in God. But
he said that wouldn't happen as long
as blacks continued listening to "liberal
editors" and refused to hear conflicting
Asked after his speech whether he
thought Gov. Jim Hunt, his Democratic
opponent in the Senate race, was behind
the boycott, Helms said: "I can't sign
any affidavit, but I know how clever
they are. I wouldn't be surprised."
Hunt campaign spokesman Will
Marshall said neither Hunt nor his aides
had anything to do with the boycott.
Drinan criticizes Reagan

Congressman and Jesuit priest told a

"There has never been any coherence

U. S., Sov ie ts plan
talks for December
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON U.S. and
Soviet experts are planning to hold
talks in early December on control
ling the spread of nuclear weapons
and technology, administration
officials said Wednesday.
The talks, likely to take place in
Moscow, are the fourth in a series
that began in December 1982. "It's
an example of if you have obstacles
in one area, you don't have to have
the whole relationship break down,"
sa!d an official who spoke on the
condition that he not be identified.
"It's not a breakthrough, but it
demonstrates the Soviets are willing
"I'm not surprised that Helms was not
received enthusiastically," he said. "But
that's just his own record coming back
to haunt him."
When told about the boycott during
a visit to a textile equipment plant in
Burlington, Hunt told reporters he was
not involved and also said he was not
surprised by Helms' sparse black
"I didn't know about the demonstra
tion," Hunt said. "I would just as soon
that people just ignore Helms. Although
he had "no idea" why Helms had
suddenly started to court black voters,
Hunt said Helms "can't fool" black and
white working people. "He's not their
friend," Hunt said of Helms.
Livingston College Student Body
President Daniel Webb said the boycott
was a "joint effort of the student
"We're not boycotting because we're
close-minded or wearing political
blinkers," Webb said. "We're simply not
giving him bloc endorsement."
Webb said the students opposed
Helms because he had not worked
against apartheid in South Africa and
because of his support of budget
cutbacks "that are torturing the poor
and elderly segments of society."
After the speech, Helms tried to shake
hands with the boycotting students, but
they refused in silence. "You don't want
to shake hands with me?" he said. "I
love you. Hang in there."
Livingston officials said Helms had
been invited as one of a series of
speakers on public affairs and that Hunt

Helms appeared with former football
player Roosevelt Grier, who said he was
working for Helms because of his fight
for prayer in the public schools. Also
speaking was Bill Keyes, chairman of

political action committee that backs
Helms because of his work for "a strong
economy, a strong defense and tradi
tional moral values."
Both men have been appearing
around the state with Helms this week
in an unusual show of black support
for Helms, who has drawn fire from
blacks because of his opposition to the
Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, oppo
sition to the Civil Rights Act and public
statements that recruiting blacks who
wouldn't vote for him anyway was a
"waste of time."
Keyes called the boycott "tragic" and
said most blacks call themselves liberal
but actually have conservative view
points on most issues, such as school
prayer and abortion.
In response to questions from stu
dents, Helms said if he had to choose
between courting the political favor of
minority groups and defending the
Constitution, "IH choose the Constitu
tion every time."
Helms based his opposition to the
national holiday for King on possible
connections between King and commu

Helms blasts Hunt
Senator critical of recent campaign strategy
By TOM CONLON
HICKORY Republican Sen. Jesse
Helms charged Democratic Gov. Jim
Hunt with deliberately distorting the
truth in their 1984 U.S. Senate cam
paign, vowing to make a Hunt, left-wing
network known to North Carolina
voters if Hunt continued attacks on his
Helms took issue with Hunt for
Senate television ads portraying his
links to right-wing fundamentalist Rev.
Jerry Falwell and hard-hitting radio ads
tabbing him as the leader of a New
Right conservative movement that
"wants to impose their views on you."
"Two to three years ago, the governor
and I set up a meeting . . . and the
governor told Joe Coors he was a great
leader of his time," Helms said of the
beer magnate and influential conserva
tive named in the radio ad as a key
figure in Helms' right-wing network.
"Today, (Hunt) calls him a right-wing
radical. Anyone who is not an ultra
liberal in Jim Hunt's book is a right
wing radical," Helms said.
Waving his hands back and forth to
the crowd of 400 at the $10-per-person
Country Adventures Barbecue, he said,

Hunt frequently changes his stands on

"In addition, my campaign has traced
Sen. Helms' connection to other radical

As lights flash across the guitarist and
singer performing British hard-pop and
the crowds push closer to the stage, the
Olde Campus Upper Quad on the
corner of Cameron Avenue and Raleigh
Street will jam Saturday night during
Rockin' Autumn II, to be held from
8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Funded by the Residence Hall Asso
ciation, Rockin Autumn will feature
the X-Teens, a group which has released
three albums with Dolphin Recording
Artists, and the Vanguard, a Winston
Salem based band whose singer guit
arist attends UNC.
"We were inspired by Springfest, and
it was our intention to provide a creative
concert that'd be a little different from
the typical concerts on campus and at
fraternity parties," said Mike Deimler,
Rockin' Autumn publicity director.
This year's Springfest, sponsored by
Henderson Residence College, was held
April 14 on Connor Beach, where a
record crowd of around 3,000 heard
PKM, Panic, and Johnny White and
the Elite Band. Let's Active, the
Vanguard and Bruce Frey were sche
duled but were rained out.
Junior Mike Chamis of the Vanguard
described his band's music as "very
loud, active and aggressive.
"We like energetic bands like the Who
and U2. We do about half original
music and half cover tunes from the
'60s, 70s and 80s," he said.
The concert will follow the UNC
N.C. State University game. "We're
hoping to attract a lot of happy people
celebrating or a lot of sad people trying
to get happy," Deimler said.
The 1983 Rockin' Autumn was
sponsored by Olde Campus and Everett
residence colleges, but RHA funding
has given Rockin' Autumn II a budget
of about $2,100, ten times larger than

political ground in the state, since
candidates rarely question the conser
vatism of their opponents in a state
where voters strongly oppose labor
unions and support the death penalty.
However, Helms said, if pressed, he
would reveal Hunt's own left-wing
network. "If (Hunt) keeps on with his
personal attacks which I haven't used
on him I'm going to identify some
of his left-wing friends, and I think hell
come out second best," he said.
On other issues, Helms accused Hunt
of misleading voters about Social
Security, using state aircraft and
supporting a tax increase.
"(Hunt) has frightened our senior
citizens by telling them their benefits
would be cut when he knows that's not
so," he said. "It's now time to draw the
line . . . and we're going to pin the tail
on the donkey."
In a press conference prior to his
speech, Helms said Hunt has contin
ually abused the use of state equipment
for political purposes. "Airplanes,
helicopters, personnel, highway patrol
men you name it, he's used it," he
said. " WeVe figured out he owes at least
another $80,000 . . . And the first time
he used an airplane for political
purposes he violated state law and
it's a felony but action has been
postponed until after the election."
Citing N.C. General Statuates 14-247
and 14-91, Helms quoted the state
auditor on how the law prohibited the
use of state equipment except for state
business. "The governor may have a
little trouble on that," Helms said.
Helms attacked Hunt for raising
taxes after campaigning against tax
increases in 1980 as governor. "He got
a lot of votes by saying he'd cut taxes,"
he said of Hunt. "Then he turned
around and hit North Carolinians with
the two largest tax increases in history
... 17 newspapers in North Carolina
said Hunt favors a 217 billion tax
increase why doesn't he fess up and
say 4I did it? "
Helms referred to Hunt's hike in the
gasoline tax in 1983 and to the 1984
National Governor's Conference vote
where Hunt supported a tax increase
to reduce the federal deficit.
"And now he complains because
we're telling the truth on him," he said.
Regarding national interest in the
Helms-Hunt campaign, Helms said
several million American citizens want
to preserve the free enterprise system
and are supporting him to carry out
