to members of the UNC faculty and
administration last week explaining the
need for the class on campus.
The letters already have garnered
four responses from faculty members
expressing their support for the class,

Carter, a nationally-renowned art

'The painting represents the Uni

Carter is being assisted in his ef

"Just because someone is a Hindi
speaker does not necessarily mean he
can teach Hindi," she said.
Until recently, Waghorne said, there
was not even a department on campus
properly designated to hire a teacher
versed in Hindi.
"It has not been a reluctance against
Hindi but a problem about what to do
with non-western languages on this cam

most widely spoken languages. The four

Carter is known as a "gentle giant"

would have multiple uses.

Americans speak Hindi at home but

Hindi the predominant language of
India, also holds importance for those

for open court seat
By Donna van der Dijs
Although Dorothy Bernholz hasn't
been contacted by Governor-elect Jim
Hunt officially, there has been specula
tion that she might be acandidate for the
N.C. Court of Appeals.
According to a recent report by The
(Raleigh) News & Observer. Bernholz,
a General College adviser and head of
Carolina Student Legal Services, is
among a handful of leading candidates
for a seat on the N.C. Court of Appeals.
The first time Bernholz heard about
the whole issue was last week after a
reporter of The N&O cal led her about it.
According to the report, Bernholz's
name had surfaced as a possible candi
date for the position, which will be
vacated after Hunt takes office in Janu
ary by Sarah Parker.
Parker recently won a spot on the
N.C. Supreme Court.
But just because the position for
merly was occupied by a female law
yer, another female lawyer won't nec
essarily be appointed, Bernholz said.
"I would be honored to be considered
as a candidate for the opening," she
"Obviously I would consider the job,
if the governor's office calls me."
But it still is very early for the governor-elect
to be contacting possible can
didates, she said.

Smith said the callers did not threaten
him or his parents. "They were more
along the lines of trying to scare (my
mother) into stopping me from what I
was doing," he said.
Smith said he and his family were not
concerned with the calls, and they had
not filed a complaint with the authori
ties. "They were just expressing their
views," he said. "(My mother) didn't
want me to be concerned about it."
Hitchcock said the callers did not
reveal their identity to his parents. He
declined further comment on the calls.
"I'd rather not talk about it," he said.
Harry Amana, an associate professor
of journalism and the chairman of the
BCC Advisory Board, said Wednesday
that he had been unaware of the inci
dents. "It doesn't surprise me," Amana said.
He said similar tactics had been em
ployed against student movements dur
ing the 1960s. He said he currently was
analyzing FBI documents from the
1960s in which federal officials de
scribed this tactic.
"It is used to neutralize students by
making their parents control them," he

advisers had not
yet compiled a list

had a chance to
look into that yet,"
At the moment,
the focus is on put
ting together Hunt's cabinet, not on
other state appointments, she said.
Bernholz has been working at Stu
dent Legal Services, a non-profit Uni
versity agency that provides legal ad
vice to students, since 1975.
Bernholz said she liked the excite
ment of working on a wide range of
legal problems and having the chance to
work with a variety people.
"I would enjoy the work (in the Court
of Appeals) but would miss working
with students," she said.
One reason Bernholz believes she is
being considered as a possible candi
date is because she is active in politics
on a statewide level, she said.
There also are not that many female
lawyers in the state, she said.
Bernholz helped her husband, Chapel
Hill attorney Stephen Bernholz, in his
unsuccessful campaign for the Demo
cratic nomination for the N.C. Court of
Appeals last spring.

back again was five hours shorter by
plane than by car.
Payne said it would take more time
for AHEC to fly out of Raleigh
Durham International Airport because
of the 35- to 45-minute trip from cam
pus to the airport and the average 10
minute delay before takeoff.
AHEC temporarily used RDU in
1989, resulting in an increase in the
amount of time and money spent on
transportation, Payne said.
Ninety percent of the medical fac
ulty participating in AHEC said they
preferred using Horace Williams Air
port instead of RDU, and 75 percent
said they would not use RDU on a
regular basis, according to a survey
conducted bv AHEC.

said doctors would not stop partici

any inconvenience caused by not be
