Inconvenienced by inflation and a lack of sufficient funds, some
student groups recently have been calling for an increase in student
activities fees. But before such drastic action is taken, a thorough
analysis of how our fees are appropriated should be completed.
Student Body President Bob Saunders has taken the correct stand in
opposing any fee increase until problems with the distribution of
summer fees are solved. Last summer, students were upset when their
appeals for money were rejected. Their requests were largely for social
events, and the activities fee they paid at the outset of the summer
session could not be used for such purposes. Two years ago, these
students could have appealed for social money to the Summer Life
program, a fund of $5,000 in the summer budget, but last year that
program was dissolved. Instead, these students, angered at receiving
few benefits from their student activities fees, watched as all their
money was transferred into the fall and spring budgets for the coming
One solution to the problem could be reducing activities fees for
summer students and asking them to begin paying a social fee to their
dorms. This would allow summer students to enjoy all the beer parties
and cookouts they want and pay less for activities not taking place in
And certainly, before any fee increase is proposed, Student
Government and the Campus Governing Council should decide
whether they will sponsor an outdoor concert this spring. It has been
estimated that last year's Chapel Thrill extravaganza took $9,000 from
the surplus fund of student fees. If a similar concert is not offered this
year, money could be taken from this fund to cover greater demands
from student organizations.
The CGC has a committee investigating the whole budget process.
In years past, student funds have been appropriated in a rushed and
unprofessional manner in an all-night session; an organization's final
appropriation has been determined more by the time its request is'
heard at 9 p.m. or 5 a.m. than by the availability of student funds.
This committee must revise the time schedule for budget hearings and
take other strong action before the CGC has additional money with
which to play. ?
It seems as if every year,' students are asked to pay more; health fees
keep climbing, dorrri rent continues to increase and parking tickets are
unbelievably expensive . Inflation may be a part of all this, but before
attempts are made to increase student activities fees, more care should
be taken to ensure that present fees are being used wisely.

When I transferred to UNC last fail, I found Chapel
.Hill to be an amiable community. This year, I have
encountered a group of very vocal and insolent
individuals who practice continual harassment toward
others from a strategic spot on Cameron Avenue.
They abuse both males and females who use this route
to go to and from classes each day. I am a woman, and
most often the comments I receive are crude
flirtations I am not flattered. Usually I try to look
(and to walk) the other way,' but last Saturday evening I
suffered the proverbial last straw.
After thoroughly enjoying the Playmaker's
performance of The Cocktail Party, a female friend
and I walked together down Cameron Avenue. We
walked arm in arm enjoying the evening and
appreciating one another's company. As we walked
slowly down the path, we passed directly in front of
several students, both men and women, sitting on a
long bench in the' yard of a fraternity house. They
offered their greeting; we offered ours. Then there was
the sound of rapid whispering from the bench. These
whisperings soon became bold insinuations:
"Hey.. .I'll bet those two are queer."
The fall o
The last time The Daily Tar Heel went on record in support of an
undefeated athletic team was in April, when the lacrosse squad was
ranked second iri the country. The "stickmen," as they are referred to
by our headline-minded I sports staff, were playing fifth-ranked
Maryland. "Bring em On," (DTH, April 4) we wrote, and on they
came. With our words of encouragement ringing in their ears, the
stickmen lost 18-12.
Naturally, this caused some concern in the office; we thought
perhaps .The Tar HeeVs ringing endorsement had put too much
pressure on the team. The idea that the Tar Heels hit the turf at Fetzer
Field thinking, "We've got to win this one for the DTH" was
distressing. In fact, if we really thought any of the lacrosse players had
actually read the editorial, we might have been worried. Anyway, they
wound up third in the nation.
Here we go again.
The last time Carolina won its first five football games was in 1948.
The offensive star of the season was Charlie "Choo Choo" Justice,
who led the team in running and passing and didn't even play
quarterback. Justice, with other players like Art Weiner and Hosea
Rodgers, took the Heels to an undefeated season and a Sugar Bowl
Strangely enough, people are talking about an undefeated season
and the Sugar Bowl again this season. After last December's defeat of
Michigan in the Gator Bowl, anything seems possible.
Right how, though, we'll just settle for a win over State.
The Bottom Line
The bathroom may come to rival the
classroom as a medium for transmitting i
knowledge if a test study at Syracuse
University is any indicator.
Dr. Alan Grogono, an associate'
professor of anesthesiology at the
university, said detailed posters on
cardiopulmonary resuscitation taped to

teaching the life-saving technique to
The study, conducted last spring,
involved 260 dormitory students. The
posters, taped to the wall of every toilet
in a coed dormitory, contained 25 key
factors about CPR, a rescue technique
for heart attack victims.
After the posters had been in place fcr
three weeks, Grogono tested 140
"graffitti" students with a 143-studer.t

"Wow! I never seen girl queers before."
By this time we were hugging one another very
tightly. We were angry. The harassment from afar then
led to direct and loud questioning:
"Hey you! Are you queer?"
"Tell us! Are ya'll gay?"
Unfortunately, this game was not enough. The
crowd on the bench was having too much fun and a
roaring good laugh. As we walked on, there appeared
before our faces a clean-cut, sweat-shirted, Greek
labeled young man with a beer in his right hand and a
cigarette in his left. My friend and I were momentarily
stunned; but the intimidation, the abuse and the
violation we suffered from his questions and
suggestions left us appalled.
"Come on... tell us.. .Are ya'll lesbians? We want to
know.. .Maybe you're bisexual?... Yeah, we could go
up to my room. I've got the Mazola...We could have a
The very sight of this man, bouncing backward in
front of us, was so absurdly ridiculous. He did not even
realize his cruelty. My friend and I, though
heterosexual, were nonetheless injured by this
prejudice. We were imposed upon because we were
different, and were defenseless against them. It is
absurd that such an open-minded community
maintains clubs and customs which reinforce the idea
that one group has the right to exclude and to criticize
others for characteristics that do not reflect self-worth
(i.e. sex, ethnic origin, race, religion, sexual preference
or physical appearance).
I do not blame any particular club, organization,
gang, non-club, etc. for this incident. I am sure such
blind disregard exists everywhere. I am not seeking
revenge. I, too, am capable and guilty of
misjudgment. I am concerned about one area that is a
source 'of trouble, but I am certain that there are
others. I want to tell people of my experience so that we
' can begin to remedy this situation.
Let me say this: The persons who abused me
Saturday evening did not seem to be overtly malicious.
Their comments were made to provoke laughter among
themselves. We were merely the brunt of the joke. The
man who chased us was showing off for his friends,
and our feelings were not in consideration. I believe
that this, the thoughtless violation of another
individual as opposed to the deliberate violation, is
more often and more easily committed. Yet to tolerate
this is to encourage it.

To the editor:
I would like to express my extreme
displeasure with the handling of the
ticket distribution for the East Carolina
University game by Carolina Athletic
Association President Charlie Brown
and the ticket office. They seem to have
missed the most basic reason for which
their positions were created to provide
a service to the students. They appear to
feel that their role is to decide policies
convenient to them without considering
the effects on the students who they '
are supposed to serve.
The students who prefer to sit in bloc
seats will be thrilled to hear that they are
expected to come back Tuesday during
Fall Break to pick up these tickets. They
also will love to know someone in their
group will more than likely have to
call long distance Monday to reserve
these seats. I am sure any plan to change
the ticket distribution because of Fall
Break will cause problems.
The logical answer to the problem is
to sign up for the tickets Friday, to have
bloc seats picked up Wednesday, and to
have individual seats picked up
Thursday. When I asked Charlie Brown
as to why he did not go with this
seemingly superior plan, he said that last
year when they tried that, a large
number of students came early
Wednesday expecting to get individual
tickets because many students did not
know the policy for that game.
The solution to that problem is to get
the word out! I am sure if he went to The
Daily Tar Heel and asked for some space
to get that information across, he could
have gotten it. He also could have tried
other methods. Instead of trying to work
out the problems of the better system, he
and the ticket office took the view that
bloc seats were "optional" or that
students did not really have the right to
have a bloc-ticket distribution that was
convenient to them.
I feel that the ticket office should
strive to . get a distribution policy
convenient to the students. That is their
job. The CAA should act as an advisory
force to make sure the students' needs are
known. I do not feel that either
, organization has served the students in
this matter. I hope they can be more
sympathetic to student needs in the

To the editor:
Having read Donna Whitaker's
review "Play spotlights pre-Nazi
Germany," DTH Oct. 14), of the Lab
Theatre's production of lama Camera,
we were struck by the large number of
grammatical errors as weU as the total
absence of any constructive criticism.
The opening paragraph implied that
scenery and costume were unimportant.
This is untrue; witness Sally Bowles'
frequent costume changes, reflecting her
character, as well as Christopher
Isherwood's single change of clothing,
illustrating his poverty.
Whitaker wisely decided not to pursue
this theme in her second paragraph- but
usefully informed us when and where
the production was to take place.
Unfortunately she neglected to mention
that all tickets had already been taken.
Her third paragraph was notable only
for the inventive spelling of the leading
actor's name, but to be fair, the
following paragraphs were extremely
ought-provoking. Can one have a
"nonchalant attitude about'
something? Is "flightly" a word?
Later Whitaker describes Fraulein
Schneider as a "jolly widow," yet she
fails to mention the more serious aspects
of Fraulein Schneider's character, in
that she represents the average German
citizen taken in by Nazi rhetoric.
The aim of the reviewer's closing
paragraphs seemed to be to cram in the
names of everyone else involved in the
production (through scandalously she
failed to mention Caspar Thompson's
superb contribution to the lighting),
lumping them all in the "also good"
While not wishing to stifle Whitaker's
individual creativity, "nicely," ell"
and "good" are words remarkable for
their imperspicuity in a critical context.

The deterioration of detente is dangerous.
Aggravated polarization, escalated Cold War and
increased danger of World War III require drastic and
dramatic reversal of present trends in U.S.-Soviet
relations. U.S. threats, belligerence, and pugnacity,
plus bloated defense expenditures, will strengthen the
hands of Soviet militarists and hawks at a time of
transition to a whole new generation of Soviet
leadership. Accelerating militarization, there and here,
must be stopped and reversed. Increased weapons
expenditure is sterile and stultifying: The psychological
effects of devoting our energies to destruction are as
serious as the economic ones. At best, both the
Russians and ourselves waste billions of dollars and
rubles in useless hardware, and at worst we head for
nuclear disaster. We must get away from overkill.
The only sufficiently drastic and dramatic program
to decelerate and reverse deterioration into destruction
is to propose and promote massive non-military joint
activity with the Russians; an endeavor that devotes
huge sums of money and effort to constructive
cooperative ventures. Np unilateral U.S. arms cutback
or unilateral diversion' of- expenditure to domestic
social needs can accomplish . what is needed.

the Ru-.-.L.-.s, the
potential weakening of military influence in Soviet
politics, and the protection of Japan from Soviet
pressure and attempted "Finlandization."
Russia surely is not the world's neediest case, most
deserving of our charity, but its ever-increasing military
threat is permeating our lives and endangering our
future. Soviet military might is the problem that must
be directly addressed. The requirement is for a plan
that engages active Soviet participation in a shift of
priorities and redirection of planning the future. We
must put forward alternative peaceful and constructive
scenarios for the coming decades.
A U.S. tax cut, or increased outlay for domestic
social services, or larger American programs of
assistance to poorer nations, offer no direct incentive
to the Soviet Union to reduce its military expenditure
and reorder its economic and political priorities. The
money "saved" by reducing our military budget should
be invested in peace, devoted to constructive purposes
in improving U.S. Japanese Soviet relations
rather than to solve domestic social problems or
provide tax reduction.
There is a chance that behind the facade cf Soviet
political unity there exists, cr there is potential for, a
substantial educated "middle management" elite
desirous of taking ever direction of the Soviet Union
from traditional and often technically incompetent
bureaucrats. The party bureaucrats cod the military use
