PRIMARY
Continued from page 1
Exit polls conducted by Voter
Research Surveys showed that 52
percent of Buchanan voters cast
their vote to send a message to
Bush, while 47 percent said they
thought he would be the best per-
son for the job. Nearly half of
Buchanan voters said they would
not vote for him in November if he
were the Republican nominee run-
ning against an unnamed Democrat.
Other polls showed Buchanan's
support came predominantly from
men, who voted for Buchanan 51
percent to Bush's 46 percent. GOP
women voted overwhelmingly for
Bush, 60 percent to 38 percent.
Bush, according to ABC News
reports, is said to be relieved that
he won the race, but is also said to
have received the message from the
voters.
The same report said that Bush
campaign aides are going to have to
"point out the differences" be-
tween he and Buchanan, suggesting
a more negative campaign style.
"If you don't mix it up with
Buchanan, you're going to get
pummeled. It's a real sock in the
mouth (to the Bush campaign),"
said former Bush and Reagan cabi-
net member and GOP political
strategist William Bennett. "This
is no wake-up call, this is Big Ben
falling on his head."
On the Democratic side, Tsongas
won a 10-point victory over

Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, but
again analysts were surprised by
the race for third, and the surpris-
ing strength of former Calif. Gov.
Edmund "Jerry" Brown, who won
9 percent of the vote.
At press time, Nebraska Sen.
Bob Kerrey had 11 percent and
Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin garnered 10
percent of the Democratic vote.
Write-in candidate Mario Cuomo's
campaign showed little momen-
tum, gaining 4 percent of the vote
"Hello Washington. This is
New Hampshire calling. We are
'There's one thing
about the smart
money ... It dries up
overnight if you don't
win.'
- Jerry Brown
Former Calif. Governor
sending you a message - just tell
us the truth," Tsongas said. "We're
grownups and we can deal with it.
We can overcome it.
"Answer the phone and tell
George Bush he cannot concede un-
til November. We are a great na-
tion - and the message from New
Hampshire is, 'Treat us that way."'
Clinton, optimistic in his
speech conceding the primary to
Tsongas, emphasized Buchanan's
strong showing.
"I want you to know that in
November we are going to win a

great victory over Pat Buchanan,"
Clinton said.
New Hampshire voters seemed
to have made their decisions based
on their pocketbooks - voting for
the candidate that they thought
would best help their financial
situation.
Fifty-eight percent of
Democrats said that the economy
played the biggest role in their
vote, and of those voters, 37 per-
cent said they voted for Tsongas.
Thirty percent of Democrats
said that they were not satisfied
with the current field and wanted
another candidate to join the race.
Among Democrats, speculation
has arisen that by week's end, at
least one of the challengers would
drop out of the race. Tsongas and
Clinton, who came in a strong sec-
ond yesterday, seem to be in the
race for the time being, but there
are doubts as to whether Harkin,
Kerrey, and Brown can raise the
money to continue.
However, Brown said he will
continue through July Democratic
National Convention in New York
City, where he expects to face not
any of the current Democratic can-
didates for the nomination, but
Cuomo, who he said is "waiting in
the background."
"There's one thing about the
smart money," Brown said, "It
dries up overnight if you don't
win."
He said he expects that to affect
Harkin and Kerrey campaigns'
ability to raise money.

experiences with the internment
camps. One grandfather worked for
the military.
"My grandfather would translate
the answers of Japanese Americans
being questioned, and his wife was
interned while he was serving,"
Yamamoto said.
Yamamoto explained that mili-
tary service was the only way to
prove loyalty to the United States.
Since his grandfather was proud of
his U.S. citizenship, he was not op-
posed to joining the military, he
said.
"My grandmother still loved
him," Yamamoto said. "There was-
n't any feeling that she was be-
trayed. The patriotism of Japanese
Americans at the time to work for
their country, to prove their worth,
was overwhelming."
Nomura, Yamamoto, and
Takeshita agreed it is important for
all Americans to understand their
civil rights so they know when
these rights are violated.
"It's not something talked about
in history books because of the se-
vere nature of it, but it's something
all Americans need to know about,"
Yamamoto said.
"It's a personal matter," Nomura
said. "People don't see the intern-
ment as an isolated event. They
don't realize it was a threat to their
own civil rights, Japanese Ame- ri-
can or not," she added. "The rights
it offers are what distinguish our
country from all others."
Roosevelt's Executive Order
9066 was the culmination of gov-
ernment actions against the
Japanese which began in 1924 with

J.L. DeWitt, Lieutenant General, U.S. Army

Condensed from Civilian Exclusion Order No. 33
the Oriental Exclusion Act - a law
intended to prevent further Japanese
immigration into the United States.
After Roosevelt signed the ex-
ecutive order Feb. 19, 1942, Gen.
John DeWitt, the commander over-
seeing the Western Defense
Command, released an order March
2, 1942 to relocate all people of
Japanese ancestry from the West
Coast states and the southern half of
Arizona.
DeWitt said he realized the
United States did not have time to
interrogate all Japanese Americans
and concluded that a mass concen-
tration would be more efficient dur-
ing the perceived emergency. It was

later discovered that DeWitt's origi-
nal statement was altered to cover
up racist intentions.
In 1988, former President
Ronald Reagan signed the Civil
Liberties Act, which called for an
apology and a $20,000 compensa-
tion to all survivors of the intern-
ment camps. President George
Bush is still send-ing personal
apologies and checks.
A University observance spon-
sored by the West Quad-Newberry-
Barbour council will take place at
West Quad at 7 p.m. tonight, fol-
lowed by a candlelight vigil on the

If the regents vote in favor of the

would take place this Friday.
The transfer would not affect the
daily operation of the police force.

members.
"That Black leadership rolled to
the top," Jeffries said. He later asked
how many of the audience had the
experience of living with young
Jewish men for four years at 10
months each. "I learned that Jews
come in all shapes, sizes, and atti-
tudes ... all backgrounds.
He spoke out against the Jews
who called him anti-semetic. "All
these attacks by these misguided
Jewish folks don't mean a thing."
"Before we get here (The Daily
was) already attacking - not me -
but the Black students," Jeffries said.
In a Daily article and editorial,
Jeffries was quoted as saying Jews
were dogs. Jeffries responded, "Why
would we say that in my class, every
class, every year?"
"And if we did say that, why was
it not brought out until three years
later?" Jeffries asked. He explained a
student sent a letter to the CUNY

board claiming he called Jews
"dogs" three years ago. He added
that he has had several Jews in his
classes and they have been support-
ive.
Jeffries explained the "ice peo-
ple-sun people" theory which has
been the focus of so much contro-
versy. He said those living in
southern climates, "sun people,"
lived in "a benificent ecology that
allowed them to studey the laws of
nature, whereas Europeans, as a re-
sult of an ice age, became "ice peo-
ple," who lived in a " culture of
survival."
Jeffries criticized the people such
as Thomas Jefferson and George
Washington for ironically possessing
slaves while fighting for liberty.
He also brought up objects like
the Statue of Liberty, the George
Washington Monument and the
Obelisk Napoleon brought to France
from Egypt as symbols of African
history.
