ce involvement charge
in Greensboro shootings
By DAN TILLMAN
GREENSBORO A former Greens
boro police officer said she was told to
"clear the area" just 28 minutes prior
to the Klan-Nazi shootout in a black
neighborhood on Nov. 3, 1979.
April Wise testified in a deposition
released Monday that she and another
officer responded to a domestic distur
bance near the site of the shootings
shortly before the shots were fired.
Five demonstrators were killed when
Klansmen and Nazis opened fire on the
Communist Workers Party's "Death to
the Klan" rally in the Morningside
Homes community in Greensboro.
The Ku Klux Klansmen and Nazis
have been acquitted of state murder
charges and of federal civil rights
violation charges in the five years since
The Greensboro Civil Rights Fund
is now bringing suit against Greensboro
city officials, including the police
department, claiming they violated the
civil rights of the demonstrators. The
civil suit will be heard on behalf of the
families of the slain marchers in federal
court in Greensboro next year. The
Fund claims that Greensboro police
knew the Nazis and Klansmen intended
to disrupt the rally and were carrying
firearms to the demonstration.
According to Wise's testimony, she
and another officer responded to a call
at 10:30 a.m. at an apartment complex
on Dunbar Street, 1 xi blocks from the
Carver-Everitt intersection where the
shootings occurred. At 10:51, Wise said,

a university and community problem.

Banks said he felt North Campus
represented a segregation problem but
South Campus exemplified integration
at its best.
"South Campus is the most beautiful
thing as far as segregation is concerned
on this campus," he said, adding that

Dr. Rose Shalom (left) teaches student diabetic support group the
Diabetic students adjust
By LIZ SAYLOR
"When you tell someone you're a
diabetic, they don't understand. If they
did, they wouldn't react the way they
do." Four UNC students talked about
how they deal with the extra pressures
they face daily because they are diabetic.
They are part of a seven-member
student diabetic support group begun
last spring by Dr. Rose Shalom of
Student Health Services. Janice Ryan,
a social worker who deals with the
emotional impact of having a chronic
illness, is co-leader of the group, which
meets Monday nights.
"There's a danger when they come
to college and want so much to conform
to everybody around them that their
diabetes gets forgotten," Shalom said.
She said she estimated about 100
diabetic students are at UNC.
The support group was designed to
educate student diabetics about man
aging their diabetes and to let them meet
other student diabetics. The group
receives no funding but has applied for
a grant from a diabetes education
research foundation, Shalom said.
Angela McNatt, 21, a senior from
Charlotte, said she knew no other
diabetics before joining the group.
"One of my roommates has been close
all four years and knows what I need,"
she said. "The other two sometimes
dont understand as well. It's so com
plicated for me, I dont know where to

I don't want anyone to feel sorry for

Two types of diabetes exist, Shalom
said. Type II diabetes begins later in
life, mostly among overweight people,
and is treated mainly by losing weight.
Type I, or juvenile, diabetes usually
happens early in life and is treated with
"Insulin is a hormone," Shalom said.
"Normally. when you or I eat.food, our
pancreas secretes insulin, which allows
your blood sugar to go into muscles
and cells in your body to be used as
energy for everyday life. In diabetes the
insulin is not being manufactured. So
a diabetic can eat a lot, and the sugar
from the food stays in their blood
stream. It makes them feel sick, and it
goes out in the urine. It never goes into
their muscles, heart, brain or eyes to
allow them to function."
Type I diabetics are less common
than Type II, Shalom said.
Possible symptoms of diabetes
include frequently being very sleepy and
hungry, eating a lot but still losing
weight, and needing to urinate often.

home, where my family was always
around and knew what to do," said

Campus groups receive
leftover campaign money
By GUY LUCAS
The UNC Students for Mondale
Ferraro will donate $240 in excess
campaign funds to four campus organ
izations, according to group co
chairman Doug Berger.
Berger said the group had been able
to raise more money at the end of the
campaign than it was able to spend and
then decided to share the excess with
other campus groups.
He added that the group spent most
of the money raised in the last weeks
of the campaign on leaflets and other

donated in the following ways: $40 to
"It's time to eat" (a UNC fund for
hunger relief in Ethiopia), $40 toward
the formation of an anti-apartheid
coalition with money in the trust of the
BSM, $80 to the Young Democrats and
$80 to Black Ink.
"We want to challenge the College
Republicans (and the Students for
America) to match us" with donations
to It's time to eat, Berger said.
Berger said the group chose to donate
to the Young Democrats "to give the
local party organization some funds . . .
(so it can) begin to build for a large
voter output in 1986."
Black Ink received money because "it
was one of the few progressive voices
on this campus" during the election,

in financial trouble.

because high blood sugar or not enough

Low blood sugar occurs when dia

not eat enough, Shalom said. This
results in an insulin reaction.
"It's frustrating to have an insulin
reaction in lecture," said Katherine

"I leave, come back with food and can
tell people are thinking, 'Looks like she
couldn't wait till after class to eat.'
