That was the sound of parties Monday night
during the first round of formal rush for UNC
social sororities. The psrtisswill ccr,tir.u; this ve;k ,

the first two nights of the process, the 950 rushees
must visit 12 houses and meet as many of their
members as they can during 20-minute-long parties
held at each house. As the event's name implies, the
whole process is pretty rushed.
"I'm very nervous," one rushee whispers
Monday. "I'll be glad when all of this over."
The sisters already in sororities also are under,

party: "Everybody make sure that you rotate. You

Some of the sisters see through a window a new
group , of rushees heading toward their house.
"Here they come," one squeals. "Let's go. Come
on everybody." They all run out to meet the girls.
The rushees approach the house with quiet
uneasiness. Soon one sees the sisters. Her worried
frown becomes a wide smile. As other rushees see
the sisters, their faces undergo the same

applause follows. Then the rushees form a line and
enter the house, handing index cards bearing their
names to a sister at the door.
"Hi, how are you. Nice to meet you, Sue. Hi,
nice to meet you, Beth," one sisters says, never
looking up. She's reading name tags. ,
Once inside there's more talk. A sister tells a joke
to break the ice. The rushees around her give mixed
response. One bites her lower lip, another nervously
sips water. One giggles a little too much.

Independent presidential candidate John
Anderson's campaign was .given a boost
Tuesday by the League of Women Voters
invitation to participate in a three-way
televised debate. Anderson also was assured
that his name will appear on at least some of
the North Carolina absentee ballots in
Meanwhile, President Jimmy Carter's
campaign manager, Robert Strauss, said
Tuesday the president will hot take part in
three-candidate debates unless Republican
Ronald Reagan agrees to meet him first in a
Strauss said Carter was prepared "to debate
any and all candidates." But he also said
Carter was insisting on an opening debate that
would be limited to himself and Reagan, his
Strauss said Reagan had been offered at
least three other opportunities for two-man
debates with Carter and had refused each of
them. He said agreeing to the league's three
man format would preclude any chance for a
head-on debate between Carter and Reagan.
Ruth Hinerfeld, who heads the league's
Education Fund, said the organization was
prepared to go ahead with the initial debate,
with or without Carter.
In announcing the Anderson decision, the
league cited three of four polls conducted in
the last two weeks showing the independent
with at least 15 percent support, the standard
required to receive an invitation to the debate.
The fourth poll showed him with 13 percent.
Hinerfeld also said the Illinois congressman
met the league's other criteria for
participation, including constitutional
eligibility and presence on the ballot in enough
states to have a mathematical possibility of
winning the election.
The appearance of Anderson's name on
North Carolina absentee ballots was required
because North Carolina law mandates a 60-day
period for absentee voting, N.C. Board cf
Elections chairman Alex Brock said Tuesday
He also said he expects the U.S. 4th Circuit
Court of Appeals to decide this week w hether
Anderson's name will be allowed on the rest of
the presidential ballots in North Carolina.
Chief Judge Clement Haynesworth asked
North Carolina election officials about the
absentee voting law and Brock said the judge
understood a decision must be reached
There should be no problem in printing the
remaining ballots, either with or without
Anderson's name, if the court's decision
comes this week, he said.
"We'd be in a jam if the decision were
delayed further, Brock said, adding that the
board would then go by the last ruling, which
Ole Holsti, Anderson's North Carolina
campaign chairman, said the Democratic
National Committee's fight to keep
Anderson's name off the ballot had actually
helped Anderson's campaign.
"When you don't have any
money... anything you can do to keep your
name in front of the public, it helps," he said.
Holsti added that he believed the
Democrats' ballot challenge was an added help
to Andersen. "It makes the Democrats look
like a shabby group of people who are scared
of Anderson," he said.
The Democrats contend Anderson's brief
campaign in the state's Republican presidential
primary last spring made him ineligible under
state law to . have his name on the general
election ballot as an independent candidate.
Holsti said he was pleased with the League
of Women Voters invitation, which Anderson
accepted Tuesday afternoon. The league said
Anderson "has clearly demonstrated (enough)
significant yctcr interest and1 support" to
participate in the league's debates.
"If he (Carter) boycotts it, he would be
looking very, very silly," Holsti said. "He'd
look like a sorehead."
The debates may be the best opportunity
North Carolina voters have to hear Anderson
on the issues, because he will probably not
campaign here, Holsti said.

- - Although- the Committer -en kncrJ -Education :
has made no formal decision on the revised ;
Thornton Report on UNC's undergraduate
curriculum, the proposed curriculum will not
include the four-semester foreign language
requirement recommended in the original report.
The committee met Monday, for the third time
this semester, but was unable to reach an agreement
on the mathforeign language requirement in the
report. However, the four-semester foreign
language requirement will not be a part of the
proposal because it is financially impossible,
Samuel Williamson, dean of the College of Arts and
Sciences and chairman of the committee, said

If the committee agrees on the mathforeign

"We're having problems because we're dealing

the proposed curriculum include English 1 and 2,

Residents of Foxcroft Apartments off 15-501 in
Chapel Hill with more than two cars per two-bedroom
apartment will have to. find somewhere other than
Foxcroft parking lots to park those extra automobiles.
Early last w eek, resident received a letter explaining
that two parking stickers will be issued Monday to each
two-bedroom apartment. The stickers will correspond
to two parking places, and residents will not be allowed
to park in any space not allotted to them.
Most two-bedrccm cpartmcr.ts with student tenants,
however, have four residents, ar.d among those four,
usually three or four own cars. The apartment lease
states that residents cf two-bedroom epartmcnts may
have cr.ly two cars, but the regulation has not been
previously enforce J, residents said. "
Parking stickers ere not mentioned in the lease.
"When we signed the lease, the owners cf the
apartment made no effort to point out the regulation
concerning two cars or emphasize its importance," said
resident Lucy Hood. "In the past, there have always
been student residents with three or four cars."
Several residents have had their cars towed from the
Foxcroft lots. Apartments resident manager Debbie
Ergle refused to comment on the stickers or the towing.
Daniel Vogel, owner of the apartment complex, is
unavailable for comment until Monday.
Residents have begun circulating a petition stating
their disagreement with the changes.
"I've never had a problem finding a place to park,"
said resident Fran Synder. "They've never towed
before, so I don't know why they're starting now."
Most residents said they did not believe that
complaints were the factor triggering the action. "No
one I know ever goes and parks on the road," one
resident said. "If the lot is crowded, we just go and
park in one cf the other courts where there is excess
room. I can't believe any of our fellow residents would
complain, either. Everyone knows it's a crowded
situation, but everyone can usually find a place to
. .Another resident, Mark Ancona, said, "We have
only one car and don't use up two spaces. The fair way
to solve the crowding problem would be to go around
and find out how many spaces each apartment needs
and give the extra spaces of people like us to the people
who need more than two. That would at least alleviate
some of the problem."
Most of the courts which are crow ded, such as Butler
and Cobblestone courts, house students. Other courts,
such as Melanie, house mostly families and have extra
Student Legal Services is investigating the legality cf
the measures being taken by Foxcroft Apartments, but
attorneys will not comment on the investigation.
"Foxcroft needs all of us living here to .make money
and most of us have cars," said a resident. "Wc can't
live here, though, unless we can have cars, so we're just
going to have to reach a compromise."
