U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin's fiery mes
sage of rebuilding the American
economy and aggressive rebuke of Presi
dent Bush's domestic policies have
failed to incite populist sentiment among
The Iowa politician sits in fourth
place in a highly contested Democratic
race, just two weeks before the Feb. 18
New Hampshire primary. Many politi
cal observers don't expect Hark in to
advance closer to the race's front-runners
as the first primary draws near.
"What Harkin brings to the race is a
sense of passion, a sense of fire and a
sense of commitment to Democratic
values," said Gary Nordlinger, presi
dent of Nordlinger Associates, a Demo
cratic media consultant firm.
"The problem with Harkin's mes
sage is that it's full of passion and fire,
but it has fallen on deaf ears," he said.

rhetoric after the give-'em-hell style of

Instead of Duke taking control with
one of its patented scoring runs, it was
the Tar Heels (16-3, 6-2 ACC) who
opened the second half with 1 0 straight
points. Then, when North Carolina
needed its offense the most, it had to
rely on free-throw shooting, coming
through with 12 of IS in the last 9 12
minutes. The Tar Heels had no field
goals in the crucial stretch.
Meanwhile, the Blue Devils (17-1,
8-1 ) missed their first four shots in the
second half and committed five turn
overs in five minutes before scoring.
"We've had some strange ones with
Duke here and some over there," North
Carolina coach Dean Smith said. "But
they're going to be there at the end.
You know that."
After Phelps delivered and broke a
tie at 73, the Blue Devils tried to work
the ball for the last shot. Christian

over Eric Montross with 24 seconds

Harkin would slash defense spend

years and would invest the savings into
efforts to reduce the budget deficit and
revive the economy, said Alex Sachs, a
press secretary for Harkin's Iowa cam
paign. "We spent about $160 billion a year
defending Europe from the so-called
Soviet threat, which is not there any
more," Sachs said. "The centerpiece of
Harkin'scampaign is a call for reinvest

back on track in the '90s."
Although Harkin has yet to announce
his specific plans for a comprehensive
health care package, the former U.S.
Navy pilot would "roll up his sleeves
and work on a plan" as his first order of
business if elected, Sachs said.

Recent meetings between adminis

new questions about the future site of
the black cultural center.
Michelle Thomas, Black Student

Chancellor Paul Hardin implied in a

Hardin said Wednesday night that he
was against new construction projects.
He said he also opposed construction of
a building for the Honors Program.
"I'm very concerned about new foot
