Diana lashed Carolina Beach with 75
mph winds at 1 a.m. this morning and
was expected to cross over the island
by 3 a.m.
After turning toward the N.C. shore
about 10 p.m. yesterday, the storm
edged westward at about 2 mph. The
storm had sat stalled "with no sense of
direction" just off Cape Fear for most
of the day.
Forecasters feared the worst that
the storm's turn would bring it ashore
near the Cape Fear River, creating a
12-foot tidal surge on the beaches and
up the river, along with 115 mph winds
near the center.
The storm's eye had approached to
within a few miles of Cape Fear late
Tuesday, but at midday yesterday it was
drifting erratically from 40 to 50 miles
east-southeast of Wilmington. In the
city, the wind blew at 29 mph with gusts
to around 40 mph.
Thousands had remained in shelters
all day, fearing that the storm might
head ashore. Many evacuees were given
permission to return to check on the
condition of their homes, but were to
be off the islands by nightfall.
Damage from the-storm's first
approach to the coast was limited
mostly to downed tree limbs, signs and
power lines, uprooted trees and a
broken fishing pier, with some street
flooding from heavy rain.
The first storm-related death was
reported Wednesday when an elderly
man trying to secure his house in
Wrightsville Beach suffered a heart
attack and died, said Robert McClure,
spokesman for New Hanover Memorial

a hurricane with no sense of direction,

Hurricane Center in Coral Gables, Fla.
"Without strong steering currents, it's
like a leaf falling off a tree. Any slight
breeze will blow it in any direction,"
said forecaster Jim Gross at the center,
warning "it could strengthen."
The National Weather Service said
the storm was expected to eventually
resume a northerly track, which would
aim it at Onslow and Carteret counties
and to the Outer Banks chain of islands.
Diana's sustained winds around its
eye eased from 135 mph late Tuesday
to 115 mph early -yesterday morning,
then rose to 120 mph but drifted back
to 1 15 mph by afternoon.

Computer cheating has been a fairly
recent problem, said Keith Johnson,
UNC student government attorney
general. But the number of computer
related cases decreased last semester
because of more clearly defined guide
lines for students on what is allowed
in a course, he said. Those new policies
included restrictions on the amount of
key punch assistance students can give
to each other on terminals..
Officials at Wake Forest University
said they had similar problems. Stu
dents were not sure what type of help
was allowed and what type was con
sidered cheating, said Toby Hale,
associate dean of Wake Forest College.
Large increases in alleged honor code
violations indicate more faculty concern
and trust for the student-run judiciary,
Student interests in maintaining
academic integrity on campus can be
seen in the number of student-reported
offenses at UNC, Johnson said. Close
to 40 of last year's approximately 200
reports to the judicial system were made
by students, according to a student
government report sheet.

More emphasis has been given this
year to teaching students what they can
expect under the honor code, Johnson
said. Freshmen learned about code

reading tests instead of a hectic con
vocation, he said. Members of the
undergraduate court will visit freshmen
English classes beginning next week to
emphasize the importance of the honor
code, he added.
Faculty members were also given a
memo reminding them of their part in
the system, he said. The honor court

Cable on campus
Housing committee to
By ANDY MILLER
A committee at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill in
October will evaluate proposals for
installing cable television in campus
Wayne Kuncl, director of University
housing, said yesterday the committee
of housing staff and students would
study commercial cable along with
related cable systems, which would
allow computer and telephone com
munications in students' dormitory
"We want to look out for the students'
best interests," Kuncl said. "We're not
trying to delay any development. But
if we put in something now without
looking at its implications, we could
double or duplicate our costs later."
The committee, he said, would study
a range of options in bringing commer

Number of faculty SAC seats multiplies
By JANET OLSON
When the UNC men's basketball
team lands its first slam dunk in the
new Student Activities Center, the roar
from the faculty will be louder than ever '
Under the proposed seating policy for
the SAC, the faculty will be allocated
between 8,000 and 9,000 seats in the
new arena, according to Ken Brown,
UNC ticket office manager. Brown said
the ticket office currently allocated
about 3,300 seats to faculty members
in Carmichael Auditorium.
Despite the increased number of
faculty seats in the SAC, Brown said,
the faculty demand may still prove
greater than the number of seats
available. But he added the actual
demand was impossible to predict
because it could not be based on the
demand for seats in Carmichael.
"A few faculty members don't order
tickets now because they don't think
they can get them in Carmichael,"
Brown said. "More will probably order
once we move to the Student Activities
The current ticket policy for faculty
seating at basketball games awards full
season or split-season tickets on a
priority basis. Priority is determined by
the number of years the faculty member
has ordered tickets in the past, by their
years of employment at the University
and by their professional rank as listed
by the state.
Brown said the critical number in the
priority system was the number of years

"We want to look at short-term and

The costs of these systems will be

"We're talking about rent dollars," he

October. "Then we could gauge costs,"
he said. "We need to have the infor

Last year's student proposal for
installing cable in South Campus did
not go through proper channels, he said.
Although new faculty members
cannot receive basketball tickets imme
diately under this policy, Brown said
it was important they order anyway to
accumulate priority points.
"If youVe been here ten years, and
have only ordered for five, you've hurt
yourself," Brown said.
According to Jane Carter, assistant
- ticket office manager, about 200 faculty
members were denied tickets last
Benson Wilcox, chairman of the
UNC Faculty Council's Faculty Athlet

unhappy with parts of the current
priority system and planned to propose
a new policy for the SAC.

The president of Village Cable, Jim

about cable television.

a place we feel there is a market and

we don't like it because it penalizes new

revealed the length of the pact, but
declined to provide the financial term.
Reports have estimated the contract
calls for between $650,000 to $850,000
per year. Jordan's market value rose
even higher after a successful stint with
the gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic
There also were reports of several
incentive clauses in Jordan's contract,
relating to individual performance, such
as making the All-Star team, and
attendance bonuses for drawing people
to Chicago Stadium.
Jordan, who left North Carolina after
three years, was the third player selected
in the 1984 collegiate draft.
