Waiting in line is a way of life at this University and Monday
night proved no exception. More than 500 leftover parking
stickers went on sale at tho Traffic Office Tuesday morning. A
line started early Monday evening and by 8:00 Tuesday
morning, three or four hundred students were in line. To pass
the time, they threw frisbees and had beer parties. Some who
spent the night were unprepared for the cool weather and
wrapped in anything at hand, including old copies of the DTH.
We always knew they were good for something.

The Committee on Undergraduate Education
agreed Monday to include a one-semester
mathematics requirement in addition to a foreign
language requirement in the revised Thornton
Report on UNC's undergraduate curriculum.
The committee will meet Wednesday to finish
working out the requirements for upper-level
general education. The entire report should be
made public in the first week of October, Samuel
Williamson, dean of the College of Arts and
Sciences and chairman of the committee, said
The mathematicsforeign language requirement
will go through three changes during the next seven
The new requirement will be implemented in
1982. Under it, a student will be required to pass or
place out of two semesters of a foreign language
and two semesters of mathematics or five semesters
of a foreign language and one semester of
In the academic year 1984-1935, the University
will cease to give credit for the first semester of a
foreign language when a student is using it to fulfill
the requirement. 1
Beginning in 1986, the University will require
students to either place out of or pass three
semesters of a foreign language.
"Analyses show that we won't have the money
until 1987," Williamson said. "There are no funds
for any kind of massive change."
The committee decided the funding the
University does have would be used to emphasise
basic skills such as English, mathematics and the
foreign languages, Williamson said.
"The perspectives (courses) and the notion of
upper-level general education in the original report
have been kept but scaled down," he said.
The original report, prepared by the Committee
to Review the Undergraduate Curriculum under the
chairmanship of English professor Weldori
Thornton, divided the curriculum into categories of
basic skills and perspectives and elaborated on the
concept of upper-level general education. -
The basic skills requirement included: a two
course sequence in English composition, a two
course sequence in mathematics and a four-course
sequence in a foreign language. Last week,
Williamson said the four-course sequence in the
. foreign language was financially impossible. '
In the original report there were four categories
of perspectives. The scientific perspective required
two sequential courses in the natural sciences, one
with a laboratory, and one behavioral science
course. Two courses were required in the Western
cultural perspective and one in the non-Western

One UNC student was evicted from
her apartment when she was unable to
pay her rent, UNC Student Legal
Services lawyer Dorothy Bernholz said
Tuesday. The undergraduate claimed
that she was unable to pay two months'
back rent until her student aid check
Late student aid funds have affected
approximately 2,600 students this fall.
The delay is blamed on the large number
of applicants for loans and also on the
large number of applications submitted
by students after the filing deadline.
Bernholz said that anyone may be
evicted legally for failing to pay his rent,
regardless of his circumstances.
The student was evicted last week
after pleading her . case in court,
Bernholz said. "She told the court she
couldn't come up with the money until
her aid check arrived," Bernholz said.

The UNC Greek system clashed once again with Chapel Hill
residents Monday night as the Town Council heard public
-debate over a rezoning request from Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. .
The change in zoning, from R-10 to R-lOa, would allow the
sorority to construct a new house on a one-acre lot it wants to
purchase at 402 Hillsborough St. Residents Qf the
neighborhood, part of the town's historic district, termed the
proposed change "spot zoning," which they said would not be
in harmony with the existing single-family neighborhood.
The sorority, now housed at 210 Pittsboro St., contended
that the character of the neighborhood had changed from
single-family to multi-family, however.
"We feel that this request is justified because the choice
seems to be between this site being developed as a multi-family
residence or as a sororityfraternity," said ZTA attorney
Robert J. Page. "We see the sorority as an equally positive
development, if not preferable."
Sharon Mitchell, assistant vice chancellor of student affairs
at UNC, represented the University in endorsing the zoning
change. She stressed the difference between sorority and.
"In sororities, the emphasis is on social development in a
structured and positive way," Mitchell said. "The daily basis
of house life is the house mother; no alcohol is allowed on the
premises, and adult supervision is required at parties."
Mitchell also said the 400 living spaces UNC sororities
provide close to campus reduce the number of commuting
students who contribute to town traffic.

Ninety UNC international students have
received their official welcome to the United
States thanks to local families who have
volunteered to be hosts.
At a reception Monday given by Chancellor
and Mrs. Ford ham and the International Center,
students met their host families for the first time.
"The University is pleased to be able to open
its doors to students from all over the world,"
Fordham said. "We hope they benefit from being
here as much as we do from having them."
Since the 1950s, Chapel Hill and Carrboro
families have participated in the host family
program, offering their friendship and help while
students adjust to life in Chapel Hill.
The new students are both graduates and
undergraduates representing more than ' 33
countries, according to Jill Bulthuis, director of
the International Center.

Robert B. House, a retired UNC chancellor, stated his support'
for the "merriment" of sorority life: "Young ladies are just
naturally more polished and refined, and they like their music
more subdued. Their parties are always in good taste."
Historic district resident Nancy Preston of 517 North St.
disagreed however, saying neighbors were resisting the
rezoning "on the basis of the noise and boisterous conduct
usually attendant with University life.
Preston also expressed concern for pedestrian safety, due to
the absence cf a sidewalk in front of the proposed sorority
house. "Since the number of vehicles may approximate the
number of new residents," she said, "access would be unduly
The Rev. Peter Lee, another North Street resident, cited a
"precarious balance" between conflicting residential types in
"This zoning change is a radical threat to the stability of the
neighborhood," Lee said. "It would be an invitation to other
property owners to hold out for the higher prices sorority or
fraternity would be willing to pay."
Betty Caldwell, president of the Chapel Hill Preservation
Society, also objected to the "inflated" price of the property
($250,000). "This rezoning is being requested for an arbitrary
reason," she said. "The owner wants to sell for a higher price
than could be realized from a single family."
