No matter how far temperatures drop
and no matter how hard the wind blows,
when it snows in Chapel Hill, people
One to two inches of snow blanketed
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area early
yesterday, and The National Weather
Service issued a travelers advisory
yesterday for the Piedmont area in
At least for those students who waited
for basketball tickets in Carmichael
Auditorium yesterday morning, the
snow came as a surprise.
I went to get tickets at about 6 (a.m.),
and it was warmer outside than it was
last Sunday," said April Yontz, a
sophomore from Winston-Salem. "But
then when we came out later, it was
Deborah Simpkins, a senior from
Asheboro who also waited for tickets
yesterday morning, said the snow didn't
dampen many spirits outside
"Most people were real excited about
it," Simpkins said. "A lot of people
started playing in the snow as soon as
they saw it."
Around Chapel Hill, it was a bitter
cold winter day with daytime highs in
the late teens and overnight lows
between 0 and 5 degrees. Northwesterly
winds gusting between 20-30 mph
frequently brought the temperature to
15 degrees below zero.
But on campus, a few students either
didn't mind or didn't notice the biting
wind and sub-freezing temperatures.
Students played football on the quads
of North Campus, the beaches of South
Campus and everywhere in between.
"Snow makes people turn into little
kids again," said Tanya Madalozzo, a
sophomore from Tarboro.
Off campus, students skied and
played ice hockey on the parking lot
at Estes Park Apartments in Carrboro.
Jay Hirst, a graduate student from Mars
Hill and a member of the UNC ice
hockey club said yesterday the par km
lot was frozen over completely.
"We could play hockey all night out
there," Hirst said.
But for students, the snow wasn't all
that much fun. Those returning yester

From staff reports
Students should attend classes as
usual today despite the snow and ice,
according to Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor and dean of student affairs.
Unless students hear reports on radio
and television which say classes are
canceled, the University plans to
maintain normal operations, Boulton
said yesterday afternoon.
"Everyone who can make it (to
school) makes it," Boulton said. "Those
who can't, can't."
In the past, the University's main
problem on campus after a snowfall had
been faculty members who could not
make it to campus because of poor road
conditions, Boulton said. He suggested
students call department offices this
morning to ask if their professors made
it to campus.
The last time classes were canceled
at the University was January 15, 1982.
Prior to that, classes had not been
canceled because of snow since the Civil
"There must have been a storm or
two before 2," Boulton said. "But we
have so many things that just have to
keep going. You just don't shut down
a medical school."
Greensboro, was returning to Chapel
Hill after spending the weekend at home
when she landed in a ditch on N.C. 54,
joining four other cars full of Spring
steen fans. Thompson said she had to
pay $20 to be towed out of the ditch.
"I got back on the road, and I didn't
go more than about 25 (mph) after
that," Thompson said. "It was just one
sheet of ice."
Today's weather is expected to be
sunny, cold and windy with a daytime
high of 25 degrees. No more precipi
tation is expected, but Chapel Hill
Carrboro schools are closed today.

Yesterday, doctors took Davidson off
another medication that had kept her
paralyzed, Beeren said. The medication
was used to keep Davidson still so her
blood pressure would remain low.
Until Davidson becomes conscious,
doctors will not be able to determine
whether brain damage occurred.
"She's had a rough day today,"
Beeren said yesterday. "But she has her
good and bad days."
Beeren said doctors did not know
how long Davidson would remain
hospitalized but told her Davidson had
a long road to recovery.
"There have been so many friends
coming by," Beeren said. "It's really
helping the Davidsons out."

Fate of SLS

A referendum to establish funding for
Student Legal Services will create a type
of student legal fee if approved during
campuswide elections next month.
The amount of the flexible per
semester fee, which is separate from the
Student Activities Fee, would be set
each year by the Campus Governing
Council, depending on SLS needs.
It would likely cost students $1 a
semester. Such a rate would give SLS
about $44,000. in one year, which is
slightly more than half the organiza
tion's annual budget. SLS would
petition CGC directly for whatever
money it needed.
