Dear Steven: When I took Linda
out for our first date 1 went home
feeling that all went just fine. It was
only a movie and pizza but we had
fun. The following weekend we went
to the beach, where her parents were
already vacationing. Again, lots of
laughs and hugs. Then a couple of
weekends ago we took advantage of
the low airfares and went up to New
York City for the day. Wonderful
all around. It sounds too good to
be true, and it is. I'm sitting here
in total shock as' I write this letter.
I called her this morning to see what
plans we could make for the wee
kend. Her mom told me she had left
for Denver last night to visit a guy
named Wayne who she has been
dating for over two years. She never
said a single word about this dud,
and never gave me any reason to
think 1 wasn't the only man in her
life. I'm heartbroken. What should
I do when she gets home. Tell her
to stay away from him? Break up
and make her come begging back?
Ask her to marry me? I dont deserve
Deceived in N.C.
Dear Deceived: Poor little wimp.
You're kidding, aren't you? Your
experiences with this lady have all
been super you said so yourself.
But that's not enough for you. Now
you want her to restrict her smiles
to you and you alone. I think she
has done you a big favor by keeping
her other involvements to herself.
Obviously, when she's with you, she
is with YOU, and her thoughts arent
anywhere else. What more could you
want? If it's some kind of commit
ment you're after then go ahead and
pop the question. But if it's just a
childish jealous streak running
through you from head to toe, you
had better spend some serious time
in a conversation with yourself. Once
your friend gets a whiff of your
smelly attitude, it's probably good
bye city. Didn't your daddy tell you
about these things?

The Campus Y Access Committee
tries to make eating a learning
The committee formerly was called
the Dinner Discussion Committee. It
planned Friday night potluck dinners
for students and scheduled a guest
lecturer, often a professor, to speak at
"Access is an acronym for 'Articu
lating Concerns and Common Expe
riences between Students and Staff,' "
said Kathy Noesen, committee co-chair.
When the committee changed its
name, it also changed its focus.
The committee will bring in profes
sors to participate in discussions with
students, instead of simply lecturing on
a topic, Noesen said. The meetings will
allow for a more open forum of ideas,
with professors providing the introduc
tory comments, she said.
The committee also will try to involve
diverse groups of people in the meetings,
"We want to open it up to the entire
campus. We encourage faculty to attend
as participants as well," she said.
The committee will sponsor a bag
lunch with Thad Beyle, a UNC political
science professor, Wednesday at noon,
in the Campus Y lounge.
The dinner discussions often are held
at a professor's home and are limited
to fewer than 25 people. A ride to the
meeting usually can be arranged,
Projects of the committee will include
dinner with Play Makers' Artistic Direc
tor David Hammond in November, a
special Halloween dinner discussion,
and possibly afternoon tea sessions and
student speakers, she said.
To sign up for the bag lunches or
potluck dinners, students should go by
the Campus Y office. Sign-up sheets will
be posted each week.
Students with a specific interest they
want to speak about should contact one
of the Access Committee chairpersons
at the Campus Y, Noesen said.
Chairpersons for the committee are
Noesen, Marcella Butler and Elizabeth
Frankenburg. For more information,
students should call the Campus Y
office at 962-2333 or check the Daily
Tar Heel for advertisements.

As children, most of us were intrigued
at one time or another with war.
Remember those John Wayne movies
and the hours you spent in the backyard
fighting the most intense make-believe
For many of us, our imaginations
were the only link to war and its history.
But for one Chapel Hill resident, that
link lies not in the imagination but in
the collection and preservation of war
Ed Hicks has collected war relics for
20 years. In that time he's amassed
medals, patches, uniforms, Japanese
swords and countless other collectibles.
"I've always been interested in
military history and began collecting
when I was young," Hicks said. "I
collected while I was in the military,
but for the last 10 years IVe been really
serious about it."
Hicks said he collected just about
anything of military and historical
value. But he said his specialty was
collecting Japanese military swords and
"The Japanese armor led the way for
me," Hicks said, referring to his
seriousness about collecting. "The
swords are the rarest to find and are
considered artwork now."
Most Japanese swords were hand
made and not mass produced, Hicks
Also included in his collections are
20th-century relics, such as items from
the special forces in Vietnam and
Hitler's SS in Germany.
Hicks displays his collections at
military and gun shows and at muse
ums. He also travels nationwide to
meetings and shows that emphasize the
collection of war relics.
"There is a large field of collectors
nationwide, and there are more people
getting into it," Hicks said. Many clubs
for collectors exist across the nation,
but there are none locally, Hicks said.
He is a member of the Japanese Sword
Society and the Chicago Sword Club,
to name a few. He also subscribes to
journals and publications dealing with
"There is a lot of runaround in
collecting, and you have to go through
a lot of people to find what you're
looking for," Hicks said. "I go through
veterans' organizations and personal
contacts, as well as some personal
Hicks said he was most proud of a
600-year-old Japanese sword he found.
He also boasted of a rare, 150-year-old
Japanese dagger that is signed and
dated by its manufacturer.
"I really specialize in items that are
related to the Samurai period," Hicks
said. Besides collecting swords and
armor, Hicks has written articles for
publications and newsletters. He now
is writing a series of articles on Japanese
swords for the Carolina Antique News.
Hicks also is doing research for two
books on the Vietnam war. One emphas
izes the North Vietnamese Army, and
the other looks at the role of U.S.
advisers in Vietnam.
"As far as the books are concerned,"
Hicks said, "I want to find, document,
and preserve the Vietnam history."
Hicks said he offered consultation to
individuals on almost any item that may
be of historical value. In addition, he
will conduct research on any type of
"I want to make sure these items are
not lost, abused or neglected if they have
historical value," Hicks said. "I think
everyone should look carefully at a
military item before tossing it out."
Hicks added he hoped to promote
the knowledge and historical value that
accompany war relics.
Advertising in Chapel Hill, Fayette
ville and nationwide, Hicks has located
people who are interested in collecting
or have items to sell. Hicks said he knew
of no organized groups in North
Carolina that dealt with collecting, but
knew of many nationwide.
Anyone interested in collecting or
needing information on an item or area
can reach Hicks at 967-6709.
