suspended sentence and fined him $250 The hearing held Monday was on Fa motion for relief filed by g Howard's defense attorneys Douglas E Kingsbery one of ' those attorneys said the motion was based on two issues: whether there was sufficient evidence of Howard's guilt to submit charges to the jury and whether Howard t had violated any of the three motor vehicle laws presented by the prosecuting

Breathalyzer test The verdict sheet that was returned by the jury to the courtroom recorded only that Howard had been found guilty But after Announcing the verdict Barefoot polled the jurors on what

Hunt said was all that would be needed to amend the two laws would coot $19500 said George R Hall Jr acting legislative services officer Hall said the amount reflects $8500 to be paid to the 170

effect July 14 requires the state to release the substance of oral statements in its possession that were made by defendants Law enforcement officials say that defendants — by recalling to whom they had made statements -- might identify informants Trial attorneys say the law is needed to protect defendants' right to a fair trial A House subcommittee recommended Wednesday that a special session be held to amend the law Under the change prosecutors would not have to disclose a defendant's statement if it did not tend to clear the defendant of guilt and if it had been made to a coal Staff Photo

postponed attempts Thursday to retrieve the anchor of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor until next week Strong winds and high sea swells prevented a critical subma rine dive needed to attach a flotation bag to the anchor Almost 230 feet below the waters off Cape Hatteras the 121- year-old anchor that slipped from the grasp of divers Wednesday awaited another attempt - Jewish center in Charlotte burns The Associated Press CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Jewish Community Center was hit by a fire early Thursday causing up to $1 million in damage and destroying a gathering point for Charlotte's 3700 Jews Firefighters sifted through the ruins for clues to the fire that forced the 12000-square-foot brick building's second story to collapse Lost was a collection of sentimental and rare books from Charlotte families — many written in Yiddish in the last century Guard ready for Italian maneuvers From Staff Reports WILMINGTON — More than 800 NC National Guard members are preparing for training overseas in Italy next month in a NATO exercise The guard moved 300 to 400 pieces of heavy equipment to the Wilmington port on Thursday to be used in Operation Display Determination guard officials said Based on incorrect information from another state agency The News and Observer reported Thursday that the Army was moving the equipment The National Guard members taking part in the exercise come from the 1st Battalion 119th Infantry headquartered in Ahoskie C Company 252nd Armor from St Pauls and the 230th Support Battalion headquartered in Goldsboro Aid considered for parched farms United Press International Gov James B Hunt Jr said Thursday that he was considering requests for federal disaster aid to farmers in at least 44 counties hit by drought this summer The governor's office said that five counties — Bertie Cabarrus Hertford Pasquotank and Washington — had provided the state with necessary information and that their requests for federal assistance were under way Another 16 counties have submitted required "flash" reports — rough estimates of damage These counties must provide the state with formal requests from their commissioners andor full damage assessment reports The counties are Anson Caswell Catawba Cumberland Durham Gates Hoke iredell Lincoln Northampton Orange Stan ly Union Wake Wayne and Wilson Another 23 counties have informally notified the governor of their need for federal aid They are Bladen Camden Chowan Columbus Currituck Davidson Edgecombe Guilford Harnett Haywood Henderson Madison McDowell Montgomery Moore Perquimans Person Richmond Rockingham Rutherford Sampson Stokes and Yadkin ' dential informant who would not be a prosecution witness The subcommittee also advised House Speaker Liston B Ramsey D-Madison that district attorneys should be prohibited from taking cases to federal courts to circumvent the discovery law Ramsey had asked the subcommittee to address that question which arose last month after two district attorneys and an assistant district attorney said they would accept "cross-designation" by Samuel T Currin US attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina as assistant US attorneys to prosecute cases in federal court In an interview Thursday Wake District Attorney J Randolph Riley criticized the subcommittee's advice to Ramsey contending that the panel had ignored similar practices by other state law enforcement agencies that use federal courts "If the Legislature needs to condemn the practice (of cross-designation) they need to look at the whole system" Riley said He said district attorneys and the state Attorney General's Office used the federal courts because fed By DANIEL C HOOVER Staff Writer Calling Clifton L Benson a "man who has bridged the gap between a career and public service" Gov James B Hunt Jr formally dedicated the northern portion of the Raleigh Be Itline Thursday as the "Cliff Benson Be Wine" Benson is chairman of the board of Carolina Builders a three-term member of the old State Highway Commission a Raleigh civic booster and an influential backer of NC State University athletics As a highway commissioner and private citizen with good political connections Benson has promoted the Be Mine project since it was conceived in the early 1950s The dedication ceremony was held on a Department of Transportation flatbed truck between Poole and Stmnybrook roads at the unfinished I-40 interchange that will link the Beltline to 1-95 at Benson in Johnston County The Cliff Benson Beltline beginning at Jones-Franklin Road in southwest Raleigh and looping around the city to the north ends near that interchange With Hunt local political leaders and top highway officials Benson cut the traditional ribbon and undraped a sign naming the highway Hunt said "For the state of North Carolina Cliff Benson has been a solid rock of faith hope and optimism" The new highway the only one ringing a major city in North Carolina "should be a genuine shot in the arm for South Raleigh's economy" the governor said "We're already beginning to see that happen" Completion of the first phase of the Benne in 1962 triggered major growth in Raleigh's northern and western suburbs but the next segment from New era! grand juries can compel the testimony of witnesses while state courts cannot Francis W Crawley an attorney in the Medicaid investigations unit of the Attorney General's Office said in an interview that attorneys in the unit were cross-designated by the US Attorney's Office in part because it gave them access to federal investigative grand juries Lester V Chalmers special deputy attorney general in charge of special prosecutions said in an interview that the Attorney General's Office recently joined forces with the US Attorney's Office in a probe of a Wake County public official because of the powers available to federal grand juries "It's a joint investigation because of the investigative grand jury" Chalmers said "A witness can be taken before the fderal grand jury but he can't in the state court" Adams head of the House subcommittee said in an interview that he did not think a bill would be introduced to address cross-designation He said an advisory opinion might be sought from the NC Supreme Court Hunt dedicates Behline section in honor of Clifton L Benson Bern Avenue to Poole Road didn't open for another decade The 31-mile loop is open except for the 21-mile portion between Western Boulevard and the 140 interchange near Carter-Finley Stadium Transportation officials said Thursday that the last portion will open Sept 1 The 140 segment making up the newer southern link of the Be Wine will be named for Thomas W Bradshaw Jr a former Raleigh mayor who was state transportation secretary from 1977 to 1981 Dedication of the Tom Bradshaw Freeway will be Sept 30 At the ceremony Hunt and Transportation Secretary William R Roberson Jr joked about an incident two weeks ago that proved embarrassing for the administration and the transportation department On Aug 11 — the day before the state Board of Transportation was to consider the request by Raleigh and Wake County officials to name the highway segments — highway crews erected several signs marking the Cliff Benson Be Kline Earlier that week highway officials had told Garner residents it would be about a year before directional signs to Garner could be put in place Hunt noted that with five major highways being rerouted from Raleigh streets to the new Be Wine those highway markers through Raleigh would be removed "I just hope we can take those signs down as fast as we put up some others" he said Roberson said: "We learned we could put other signs up that quickly The signs that were scheduled for Garner next year will go up today" Highway Administrator Billy Rose said that at the order of the transportation board "I gave this a priority and told (the sign shop) to do it" Suffragette recalls early women's rights movement Bess W Mitchener By LAURA SEIFERT Staff Writer Bess W Mitchener 92 remembers the women's suffrage movement as if it were yesterday "I can see myself in that Legislature building right now" said the silver-haired woman in an interview Thursday night — the eve of the 63rd anniversary of ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution that gave women the vote Mrs Mitchener of 307 W Park Drive was one of the lobbyists who fought to give women that right "They had called a special legislative session to vote on women's suffrage soon after I arrived in Raleigh in June of 1920 so naturally all of us in Raleigh jumped in the fight" she said her shoulders straight her back not touching the cushioned panel of the chair "We were ladies and the legislators were gentlemen about it" the suffragette recalled her blue eyes sparkling as she spoke "There was no knock-down drag-out The legislators who were with us Fore a pink flower in Drugs feel the heat after court appearance - By

Police seeking motorist who ran after accident Raleigh police were searching for the driver of a car that slammed into a truck Thursday evening on New Bern Avenue causing substantial property damage but only minor injuries The accident occurred about 9 pm at the intersection of New Bern Avenue and Milburnie Road Officers said the driver of the car leaped out and ram into some nearby woods after the collision The driver of the truck who was not identified suffered cuts and bruises police said Officers reported finding an empty bottle of liquor in the car improvement first aid money management and sewing are scheduled Recreational activities such as dance and exercises for toddlers also will be offered Ms Hackney said Adults will be given priority for registration in the classes but teen-agers will be allowed to register if the classes are not filled Some classes such as cake decorating and children's karate will be designated for youths only A course bulletin including class descriptions and registration information is available at any Wake County library branch and county public school offices Classes will be held at Apex Athens Drive Broughton East Wake Enloe

County Community Schools Afflorto " '1'11 771r) the buttonhole of their lapel The ones who were against suffrage wore a yellow one That way if we saw a yellow flower we'd know it was no use to bother with them" Women's Equality Day is officially observed today But the League of Women Voters of Wake County started a day early with a Thursday night celebration honoring Mrs Mitchener at the headquarters of the NC Association of Educators on Salisbury Street Many women from the audience of more than 100 shook Mrs Mitchener's hand and said how much they admired her work during the days of the suffrage movement "Oh I haven't done much" was her modest reply "I just kept the faith It was just silly that women couldn't vote" The North Carolina General Assembly ultimately defeated the amendment Mrs Mitchener said but the Tennessee Legislature voted on it a couple of days later and passed it "And that was the last vote it needed" she said "We got the Acting on judges' orders members of the Wake Sheriff's Department and Clerk of Court's Office stoked a basement furnace with about $200000 worth of marijuana heroin LSD and other drugs The drugs had been seized in criminal cases that have been disposed of by the courts said Lt Lewis A Crownover evidence custodian for the sheriff's department "If we destroyed things every day we'd only do one or two small pieces so we let it accumulate" he said "Every so often we take what we've got and destroy it" Crownover said that fumes from the furnace left the courthouse via a smokestack on the roof but that there was no danger of anyone outside getting wind of it "All the smoke is filtered before It goes out" he said "It's all purified so to speak" Incineration took from 9 am until about 12:30 pm he said In addition to drugs the department destroyed a number of guns knives brass knuckles and other metallic items All were fed through a shredder at a local scrap metal firm Gallons of liquor much of it seized in DUI cases were poured down a basement drain into the city sewage system "We can't do anything else with It Crownover said "We're not op"— 4n if " right to vote without the help of North Carolina 'Twas a good cause women's rights And I'm still fighting for it" Women should have the right to vote and the right to receive the same pay as men for comparable work Mrs Mitchener said But her views on a further extension of equality reflect the era in which she was raised "I believe in equal pay for equal work yes" she said "but if my house is burning down I want a strong man out there not a woman" The mother of two sons and the grandmother of 11 chilren Mrs Mitchener was a Latin teacher in Kinston before she and her husband a county health officer moved to Raleigh in the summer of 1920 She said she had gone through her share of garden club memberships civic organizations and charities in the 63 years she has been a Raleigh resident "Now I'm just looking forward to spending time with my grandchildren" she said Justice Department clears prosecutor of alleged misconduct Continued from page ID would not have filed their motions' he said The documents — motions and affidavits filed at the start of Soles' trial — accused McCullough of prosecutorial misconduct for the incident and asked that charges against Soles be dismissed The motions were subsequently withdrawn but the allegations were forwarded to the Justice Department A spokesman for the Office of Professional Responsibility declined to comment Thursday on the review Three of the four charges against Soles were dismissed by the judge for insufficient evidence and Soles was acquittd of a fourth charge of aiding and abetting an extortion conspiracy Baptist woman pastor a South Carolina first COLUMBIA SC (AP) —
