1 Student Government is gearing up for
its voter registration drive in time for the
November elections, and the Town Rela
tions Committee will be registering
students to vote from Tuesday, Sept. 28,
to Thursday, Sept. 30.
' Registration will take place in the lobby
of the Carolina Union from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. Tuesday, 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednes
day, and 1 1 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.
There are several reasons behind the
drive to register students, said Jeff Whise
nant, Town Relations Committee member
in charge of voter registration.
: "If we have 20,000 votes spread out
across the East Coast, no one's going to
pay attention to us," Whisenant said. "If
we have 20,000 students coming out of
Orange County, legislators are going to
stand up and listen to us."
". Voter registration also is the first step
for out-of-state students to establish in
state residency, Whisenant said.
Students may register to vote in Orange
County if they consider it their home and
are interested in participating in the local
government, said Pat Carpenter, chairper

fer courses dealing entirely with the
study of women, gender and sex roles.
Mathews notes, however, that these
courses are not just for women.

courses too. If roles change for one sex,

. Mathews' new book was conceived
when Kerber and Mathews met in 1969
at the Berkshire Conference for
Women's Historians. Afterward they
served for five years on the American
Historical Association's Committee of
Women Historians. In reality, the
book's impetus came when Nancy Lane
of Oxford University Press persuaded

seeing students vote once they had
registered whether it was in Orange Coun

Elections appearing on the November
ballot include those for the U.S. House,
the N.C. House, the N.C. Supreme Court
Justice, Court of Appeals judges and
Students wishing to register on campus

card with a picture and proof of local
residence, such as a checkbook, phone
bill, class registration or anything with
their local address printed on it.
In addition to new registrants, students
who have registered here previously but
have changed addresses since then can also
inform registrars next week in the Union in
order to be eligible to vote.
Students who are unable to register or
change their registration in the Union may
do so at the Chapel Hill . Municipal
Building, Carrboro Town Hall or any
other registration site in Orange County.
The last day to register or change a
registration in order to be eligible to vote in

Women 's America is an anthology of
essays which rests on the assumption
that "an accurate understanding of the
past requires women's experiences to be
analyzed with as much care as historians
have normally devoted to the experience
Women's America contains essays
ranging in time from 1600 to the pre-;
sent. The essays show in a distinct
history of American women the inter
action of four elements:- biology,
economics, politics and ideology.
Mathews' essay "The New
Feminism,'' deals with these categories
in the present times. Her essay is con
cerned with how "greater reproductive
control and longevity, increasing
numbers of wage-earning women within
the labor force, and participation in

Child safety in automobiles is a concern

One of the many research projects
underway at the department of en
vironmental sciences and engineering of
the UNC School of Public Health, is ex
perimenting with methods for treating
wastewater from coal conversion pro
. cesses. . -
When coal is converted to either natural
gas or oil, a lot of liquid waste is
generated, explained associate professor
Mark Sobsey. "Using a more effective
treatment process, a lot of contaminants
could be successfully removed," thus
reducing the waste toxicity, he said.

Of course, Mathews' work in history
is not finished. During spring term, she
will teach History 90 a cnurs dealing
with gender, work and family in the
20th century and public policy issues
relating to those topics. Also, she is now
writing a book with her husband on the
Equal Rights Amendment and the
politics of cultural conflict.
; To Mathews, women's roles in
history are essential in its importance to
both men's and women's social condi

"You can't talk about changes in
women's roles without talking about the
implications they have for men and
