HILLSBOROUGH Alton Eugene
Harris Jr. was found guilty Friday of
first-degree murder and attempted first
degree rape of UNC sophomore
Freshteh Golkho.
A sentencing hearing begins at 10
a.m. today in Orange County Superior
Court. District Attorney Carl Fox
would not comment on whether he
would ask for the death penalty for
Harris, 20, of 801 Estes Drive. "I guess
well see on Monday," Fox said.
As the court clerk announced the
murder verdict, Fariba Golkho
Homesley, Golkho's sister, gasped "Oh
God" and ran out of the courtroom to
a nearby rest room. Her crying could
be heard inside the courtroom.
Edna Harris, Harris' mother, col
lapsed screaming after Judge Edwin S.
Preston dismissed Harris and the jury
from the courtroom. Mrs. Harris
screams were heard outside the cour
troom as she was surrounded by defense
attorneys and court officials.
Mrs. Harris was later escorted to an
ambulance, but was not taken to a
hospital.
Police found Golkho, 19, stabbed to
death in her J-l Royal Park Apartment
in Carrboro March 16. Police found a
green camouflage wallet containing an
identification card for Harris near
Golkho's body. Police arrested Harris
on March 17.
The prosecution presented its case
Tuesday andWednesdayand the -defense
attorneys presented no testim
ony. Attorneys completed closing
arguments Thursday.
In his argument, Fox ridiculed the
statement Harris made to police after
his arrest. Harris said Golkho had run
into the knife. Golkho was stabbed 18
times, according to the autopsy report.
Osborn said Harris should not be
found guilty of murder in the first
degree. If the killing had been premed
itated, Harris would have brought a
weapon with him, Osborn said.

Nearly 400 students gathered in
the Pit Friday for an anti-apartheid
rally as speakers condemned apar
theid in South Africa and UNC's
investments there.
The UNC Anti-Apartheid Sup
port Group sponsored the noon rally
coinciding with National Anti
Apartheid Day. Several speakers
wore black armbands and T-shirts
reading "Abolish Apartheid. Divest
Now."
Dale McKinley, a graduate stu
dent from Gweru, Zimbabwe, said
President Reagan should cancel his
policy of constructive engagement in
South Africa. With this policy the
United States seeks to influence
reform by working with the South
African goverment.
"Constructive engagement is a
bunch of crap," McKinley said. "It
tries to persuade Afrikaaners to
change their ways. What you see are
more killings and more riots. We've
got to reject Reagan's policy of
constructive engagement right now."
Several of the speakers paralleled
the American Civil Rights Move
ment of the 1960s with the struggle
and racism that black South Afri
cans encounter today.
"We have to take a stand. We have
to act," said Herman Bennett, one
of three executive chairpersons of the
UNC Anti-Apartheid Support
Group. "We must end the policy of
constructive engagement. We can't
forget our brothers and sisters in the
'60s. How long must racism continue
in this country?"
Many protest signs were distrib
uted throughout the crowd and
about 25 students stood behind
speakers holding signs with mes
sages, two which read: "Dump
Helms (sic) S. Africa's Senator"

erated for about three hours Thursday
and two hours Friday morning before
returning its verdict at 1 1:05 a.m.
Harris' attorney, J. Kirk Osborn,
stood immediately and said, "Poll the
jury." As each individual juror verified
the decision, Harris sat with his head
down.
The sentencing hearing will be before
the same jury, Preston said, cautioning
spectators against emotional outbursts
in court. "I don't want my jury to be
affected by the emotions of anyone,"
he said.
After the trial, Homesley said she was
thankful for the verdict, but did not wish
for a specific sentence.
"Alton Eugene Harris Jr. acted as
judge, jury and executioner of my sister,
and he is getting a far better deal than
she ever hoped for," she said.
"I know my sister," Homesley said,
"and I know that she died fighting."
Ali A. and Vida Golden, Golkho's
parents, attended the trial but did not
talk to reporters. Homesley's husband
and mother-in-law also attended the
trial.
The jury decided its verdict under the
felony murder rule, which allows a
defendant to be found guilty of first
degree murder if he commits the murder
while committing another felony in
this case, attempted rape. Preston
instructed the jury that Harris could be
convicted of first-degree murder using
the felony murder rule as an alternative
to the malice, premeditation and
deliberation requirements. .
Police found Golkho in "the ; dining
room of the apartment wearing only a
tank top and socks. She had been
stabbed about 18 times in the arms and
chest, and a blood-covered kitchen knife
was found near her body.
A window in the rear bedroom of
the apartment was found open, with
blood on the curtains and a bent screen
lying on the ground below.
SBI forensics specialist Jed Taub
found blood on Harris'jacket and pants
consistent with Golkho's blood. No
evidence of hair, sperm or semen
transfer was found, SBI agents said.
Harris had been dating Loretta Petty,
one of Golkho's roommates, at the time
of Golkho's death. Testimony indicated
Harris and Golkho did not like each
other.
Golkho lived in Jacksonville for
about 10 years before attending UNC.
She was a native of Tehran, Iran.
Tair Heels
By TIM CROTHERS
Assistant Sports Editor ' ...
When the gun sounded, ending the first half of North
Carolina's 34-14 victory over Wake Forest Saturday
afternoon, the Tar Heels stormed off the field with relatively
mild applause and cheering ringing in their ears.
Cynics would attribute this less than ecstatic support to
Tar Heel fan apathy, but in this case, more likely the crowd
of 49,000 at Kenan Stadium was simply stunned.
Who could blame them? Moments earlier, with :08
remaining in the half, quarterback Kevin Anthony hit a lonely
Earl Winfield in the back of the end zone for a touchdown.
It was Winfield's third touchdown catch of the game, it was
Anthony's fifth touchdown pass, the Tar Heels were up 34
0 and there were still 30 minutes of football left.
After the 31-0 travesty at Georgia Tech a week ago, no
one knew quite what to expect from the Jekyll & Hyde
Tar Heels in their ACC home opener, nor did they seem
overly anxious to find out. The crowd was very late in arriving
and those who did close up the tailgates in time for the
opening kickoff were careful not to disturb anyone in the
stadium who might have been studying. In fact, the only
people who were noticeably excited, were wearing blue
helmets.
Last year's 14-3 loss at Wake Forest and some derogatory
comments by Deacon players following that game did
wonders for Tar Heel motivation. "I really feel they didn't
have a lot of respect for us," Winfield said, "pregame they
were barking and that got all of us fired up."
The North Carolina defense was the first to translate this
incentive into action. On Wake's opening drive after the
kickoff, the defense shut down the Deacons without a first
down. This "one, two, three and punt" sequence became
all too familiar to quarterback Foy White and the Deacons
in the first half, but more importantly, the inspired defensive
effort worked to spark the UNC offense which had been
blanked at Tech.
"The defense established the momentum and we built on
it," Kevin Anthony said.
In UNC's opening offensive possession, Anthony marched
the Tar Heels down the field almost at will, mixing the run
and the pass to keep the Wake defense off balance. "It was
important for me to re-establish myself as a leader and to
make things happen on offense," Anthony said. "I didn't
do that last week." This week he redeemed himself admirably
by completing 23 of 31 passes for 279 yards and the UNC
record five touchdowns.
Eric Streater capped the drive with a sprawling touchdown
reception that established the trend for the entire first half.
The UNC defense would provide "the set-up" and the offense

UNC system President Friday attending University Day. He gave his final faculty address before his '86 retirement.
100 gather foir UNCP bMhday

They gathered under cloudy skies by Old East dorm,
waiting for their signal to begin.
When it came and the faculty procession began, the colored
robes and sashes of the professors participating in University
Day activities added atouch of brightness. , A , v -The
University celebrated its 192nd birthday Saturday.
The holiday was ' created to commemorate laying the
cornerstone of Old East, the nation's oldest state university
building, on Oct. 12, 1793.
About 1,100 students, faculty, alumni and visitors gathered
in Memorial Hall to witness the faculty procession and the
presentation of the Distinguished Alumni Awards.
The awards are presented each year to alumni who have
distinguished themselves in a manner that brings credit to
the Univeristy.
Each of this year's recipients "manifests the finest flowering
of the University and all it represents," said UNC system
President William C. Friday, who delivered the main address.
The recipients were: Jane T. Carswell of Lenoir, a 1954
graduate; Richard H. Jenrette of New York City, a 1954
graduate; Bryce Jordan of State College, Pa., a 1956 graduate;
and Lindsay Warren Jr. of Goldsboro, who received a
doctorate from UNC in 1956.
Carswell was named family doctor of the year last
December by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
She was the first female doctor to receive the award.
Jenrette is one of the founders, chairman of the board
and chief executive officer of New York-based Donaldson,

would apply "the sting".
The only departure from this tidy pattern occurred with
10:42 remaining in the second quarter when Wake Forest
recovered a North Carolina fumble on the home 2-yard line.
The stage was set for the most dramatic four downs of the
ballgame. Unfortunately for the Deacons, they thought they
had a secret, but the UNC defense knew all about it.
"They came up three times and knew what play we were
running," Deacon offensive lineman Paul Mann said.
"We watched the films and saw that they run the ball
to the left at the goal line," linebacker Carl Carr confirmed.
And so they did. With many fans answering the call of
the UNC defense to stand and cheer, Wake ran Michael
Ramseur into the left side of the line three times and three
times there was a gang of UNC defenders waiting for him.
A fourth down pass was deflected incomplete. The crowd
stayed on their feet to applaud the defense as they charged
off the field. Any serious hope for a Deacon victory was
squelched right there on the North Carolina 1-yard line.
"When you get down there (the goal line), it comes down
to who wants to win it more," cornerback Derrick Donald
said. "I think it showed today, our players wanted it more."
The real backbreaker came when North Carolina followed
up this ultimate defensive accomplishment with the ultimate
offensive feat. The Tar Heels took over the ball at their
own 1-yard line and drove 99 yards for a touchdown. The
most significant play of the drive was the opener. Anthony
handed off to his tailback No. 12, who bulled his way for
20 yards. Many a fan did a double-take and consulted the
nearest program to check the identity of this Ethan Horton
clone.
The name is Derrick Fenner and his resemblance in the
backfield to Horton, the former UNC standout, is
astonishing. In a storybook sidelight, it seems that Fenner
idolized Horton while in high school at Oxon Hill, Md.,
came to UNC and took the famous No. 12; and for this
day at least, ran around and especially over tacklers, with
an abandon that would make his idol proud. Fenner finished
the day with 109 yards on 21 carries.
When Winfield cradled Anthony's fifth touchdown pass
of the game, it capped what had become a half of near
perfection for North Carolina. Coach Dick Crum was full
of superlatives.
On offense: "It was about as good as you can expect our
offense to play," he said.
On defense: "They were outstanding, it was as good as
weVe played in a long time."
The second half was an exercise in anticlimax.

In his address, Friday recalled the days of turmoil the
University had faced and talked about the University's future.

toward better performance, greater service and a stronger

When UNC system President Wil-'
liam C. Friday approached the podium
Saturday to deliver the main address
at University Day ceremonies, about
1,100 people stood and applauded.
Friday's address was his last to the ;
UNC faculty before his retirement in
July 1986.
"For nearly 30 years, it has been my
privilege to associate with you in the
service of this great institution," Friday
said. "These visits must come to an end
today."
The University is a member of the
world community of learning and
scholarship, and during his years as
UNC system president, Friday said he
had seen dramatic changes in the
system's structure and governance.
"WeVe grown from a tight little
family of three to a large family of 16,"
he said.
Although the UNC system has
grown, UNC has been able to maintain
freedom from state regulation in part
through its system of governance,
Friday said.
"I believe our structure, and your
Board of Governors, have established
and maintained a sound balance -between
the necessities of statewide
responsibility and institutional free
dom," he said.
. "More important, the board and we
who serve it are determined to protect
that freedom against excessive
intrusions.
Attention in recent years has shifted
from the primary and secondary schools
to systems of higher education such as
the UNC system. The importance of

overlooked, Friday said.
"The absence of a forceful and
aggressive national policy implementing
a declared, first priority status for the
strength and quality of our country's :
higher educational enterprise is damag
ing and costly to the nation," he said.
"The gains of a few years ago are not
being maintained and the nation suffers.
"Distinguished research universities
are the instrument by which we achieve
and fulfill our declared national pur
poses; therefore, their well-being is
indeed a major national concern."
