By JEANNIE FAR1S
Democratic Senate candidate Milton Croom of
Raleigh said in a news conference last week that former
Gov. Terry Sanford has been influenced by Soviet
propaganda aimed at weakening U.S. defense
"The Soviets have been conducting campaigns
through their cohorts since June 1984, when the (U.S.)
Army shot down a (Soviet) ballistic missile 100 miles
above the Pacific Ocean," Croom said.
"Terry (Sanford) is apparently influenced by this
propaganda," he said.
Sam Poole, Sanford s press secretary, said the
candidate's record was "positively clear."
"He (Sanford) has a long-standing record of work
in the state, the country and even in international
issues." PooK" said.
Croom said the thrust of this Soviet propaganda
was to discourage the development of the Strategic
Defense Initiative program, which he said Sanford
Sanford has not officially taken a stand on the SD1
program, Poole said.
"He has noted that the government has requested
S4.5 billion in money for research, which is close to
or exceeds the whole budget for funding research in
the nation s universities," Poole said.
Croom said the Soviets wanted to spread the
perception among the public and especially college
students that the Star Wars program and its research
would divert funding from education. '
The perception of public opposition is important
in the propaganda campaign, he said.
"When the proposal (for SDI funding) was first
m;u!c. :l perception was created among politicians
that there was public opposition to the SDI program,"
C room -said. " I his : ipical ol the ways officials are
affected by Soviet propaganda."
The Union of Concerned Scientists is guilty of
spreading this propaganda, Croom said. "They have
opposed the SDI program . . . on the basis that it's
technologically unfeasible. But that opposition is more
political than technical."
The media are also responsible for spreading false
perceptions about military issues by referring to the
SDI program as "Star Wars" and by releasing
unfavorable reviews of it, Croom said.
Sanford worked as an FBI agent before joining a
military airborne division as a paratrooper in World
War II. Poole said. He also served as the president
ol Duke University for several years.
"His life has been government," Poole said. "He has
always been patriotic and . loyal, and to even hint
otherwise would be ludicrous."
Libya says U.S., Israel planned European terrorism
TRIPOLI, Libya - A Libyan official
claimed Wednesday that the United
States and Israel have planned terrorist
attacks in Europe for which Libya
would be blamed. The White House
denied the allegation.
The attacks. Information Minister
Mohammed Sharafeddin said, then
would be used to justify additional
bombing raids on Libya.
In Washington, White House spokes
man Larry Speakes quickly denied the
Libyan report. "The CIA is not causing
terrorist incidents in Europe," he said.
Sharafeddin told reporters he based
his statement on reports from intelli
gence sources in "friendly states,
including European countries." He gave
no further indication of who his sources
were, or when or where the alleged
planned attacks were to be carried out.
Asked the type of attacks allegedly
planned, the information minister
replied, "Operations similar to the West
Berlin nightclub bombing."
Two people were killed and 230
injured in the April 5 nightclub bomb
ing, which the United States has blamed
on Libya. President Reagan has said
the April 15 U.S. bombing raids on
Libya were in retaliation for Libyaa
involvement in the nightclub bombing.
Earlier Wednesday, Sharafeddin said
all 250 foreign journalists who had
arrived after the U.S. bombing raids
had completed their mission and were
expected to leave Libya by week's end.
Sharafeddin told reporters in the Al
Kabir Hotel, the headquarters for the
foreign media, that they were not being
expelled. But he said the government
needed their hotel rooms, and they
would not be taken on any more
escorted tours. The journalists have
been largely prevented from leaving the

said journalists representing media in
the United States and the 12 Common
Market nations should pack their bags

The officials originally said East bloc,
Canadian and Japanese journalists
could stay, as well as reporters from
Sweden, Norway, Finland, Switzerland
and Austria, which are not members
of the Common Market.
However, the new order appeared to
apply to all foreign journalists.
Libyan officials said Tuesday that the
foreign correspondents had taken all the
tours the government had authorized.
Stevenson renounces candidacy for Illinois governor
CHICAGO Adlai E. Stevenson
Wednesday renounced his Democratic
nomination for governor, saying he
cannot run on the same, slate as a
political disciple of political extremist
Stevenson also filed a federal suit
seeking election changes that would
allow him to run as an independent
candidate. State law requires that
independents must have filed nominat
ing petitions by last Dec. 16.
Stevenson said the day after the
March 18 primary that he would not
run with Fairchild.
Bob Benjamin, Stevenson's press
secretary, confirmed that the candidate
had sent a resignation letter to the state
Board of Elections and a copy to the
state Democratic Partv.
Benjamin said the suit, filed against
the state Board of Elections, sought to
push the filing deadline for independ
ents to Aug. 4, the same deadline for
"To make the deadline 1 1 months
before the general election for independ
ents, and three months before the
general election for third parties is
unfair," Benjamin said.
If Stevenson loses his court bid, his
only choice will be to create a new party
and run a full slate of candidates in the
general elections, Benjamin said.
In a preliminary draft of his lawsuit,
Stevenson said he "finds repugnant and
anti-democratic" the views of Mark J.
Fairchild, the LaRouche-backed candi
date for lieutenant governor paired with
Stevenson on the ballot, spokeswoman
'Terry Stephan said.
The draft says Fairchild "espouses
religious and racial bigotry" and holds
"irrational and anti-democratic" polit

Reagan administration argues
role of comptroller unlawful
WASHINGTON The Reagan
administration clashed with Con
gress Wednesday in a Supreme
Court confrontation over the valid
ity of the law that requires a balanced
budget by 1991.
Charles Fried, the admin
istration's top courtroom lawyer,
challenged the central provision of
the law the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings
Act -that empowers the
comptroller general to determine
required levels of deficit reduction.
He argued that the role of the
comptroller general is unlawful
because he performs executive func
tions under the act but may not be
fired by the president. He said this
violates the Constitution.
Steven R. Ross, speaking for the
bipartisan leadership of the House,
said the comptroller general was
chosen for his role under the act
because of his political
Man charged in Atlanta slayings
ATLANTA Police Wednesday
charged a 31 -year-old man with
murder in one of four slayings of
elderly black women that terrorized
black neighborhoods, and said they
plan to seek indictments against him

Public Safety Commissioner
George Napper said Richard Hun
ter, of Atlanta, was charged with
murder, rape and burglary in the
death of 85-year-old Annie Rochelle
Copeland, whose body was found in
her apartment March 1. She had
been smothered with a pillow.
Hunter, who is black, had been
questioned by police at the city jail
since Sunday, The Atlanta Consti

newspaper said he was arrested for
alleged parole violation and told
police he had obtained drugs by
trading a television set that belonged

Suit filed against Glenn Miller
RALEIGH - White Patriot
Party leader Glenn Miller said
Wednesday political motives were
behind claims that his white suprem
acist organization illegally engaged
in paramilitary training.
Miller, a Republican candidate for
U.S. Senate, said Morris Dees,
director of the Southern Poverty
Law Center in Montgomery, Ala.,
"is trying to harass our poltical
candidates. . . . The timing should
make that obvious." :
The law center filed a motion
Tuesday asking that Miller be held
in contempt of court for violating
a January 1985 settlement in which
he agreed not to operate a paramil
itary organization, march in pre
dominantly black neighborhoods or
harass blacks. The settlement
stemmed from a 1984 class-action .
suit by the center that claimed
Klansmen made a bomb threat
against a black family.
