Just as the harmonizing of the Clef
Hangers, UNCs all-male a cappella
group, creates a musical bond between
generations, it creates a bond of
brotherhood between Us members.
For Brent Hathaway, a senior eco
nomics major from Farmville, it opens
the door to a host of new friendships.
- "1 love music, but it's the friendships
that keep me here," he says. "1 wouldn't
have put five hours a week into it if
I didn't trust these guys. They're like
Hathaway has been a Clef Hanger
for two years. He says the memories
of singing with the group will stay with
him after graduation next month.
Td do just about anything for these
guys. I'm moving to Atlanta, but IU
take them with me."
The nine-year-old group specializes
in 40s ballads, spirituals and old
fashioned barbershop quartet numbers.
Members have traveled to places such
as Atlanta, Washington, D.C. and
Florida's Palm Beach area. The group
is known for on-stage comic routines
and humorous song introductions.
Hugh Tilsori, a senior from Raleigh,
says singing with the 13-member group
enables him to meet people because the
music creates a friendly atmosphere
where people share a common ground.
"The Dapper Dans (a professional
singing group) were singing at Disney
land. We started to talk to them, and
they heard us sing," Tilson says. 44 After
getting to know us, they asked us to
sing along with them in their program."
Tilson says the group sings wherever
it goes. Stories about the group singing
in bars is true, he says, but drinking
is not their primary reason to go out.
"It's a great feeling to sing the UNC
fight song and have a bunch of Carolina
grads come up to you," he says.
The success of the group is based on
"this kind of spontaneity, says Jay
Tillman, a senior from Durham. "Some
how the group has always been funnier
than most of our types."
Tillman adds that the Clef Hangers
have always had a reputation for trying
out impromptu humor during perfor
mances. Each member develops secret
introductions for an assigned song.
At the last UNC performance, a
mock wedding procession was used as
an opening. The shortest member

Although most of the gags have been
taken well by audiences, some audiences

they clapped real polite-like, and they
were just quiet. It was pretty tough."

him feel a part of a whole.
"It has made me a lot closer to four
other guys," he says.
Like any other organization,
members of the Clef Hangers do have
squabbles. But the members say nothing

Grief -must he expressed!
eventoally, speaker says
By RACHEL ORR
The intensity of an individual's
grief is very personal and should not
be Judged by others, said a UN'Q
psychologist Wednesday night dur
ing a seminar on handling grief in
the Student Union.
You're the only one that can
determine where you are in the sense
of loss," said Richard A. Lucas, an
adjunct associate professor of psy
chology, before about 25 people
during a speech sponsored by the
Carolina Union Human Relations
Wearing a t-shirt that said "Life
is hard, then you die," Lucas said,
"Regardless of the magnitude of loss
we experience, we not only survive,
He said that regardless of the
nature of a person's loss, grief must
be addressed at some point.
"When you encounter grief your
self or another grieving, you must
remember it is a transitory process,"
Lucas, a 1974 UNC graduate, said.
The process of coping with the
death of a close friend or relative
involves a trajectory curve, he said,
made up of the following compo
nents: initial shock, emotional reac
tion, isolation and depression, phys
ical symptoms associated with those
of the deceased, guilt, panic, hostil
ity, idealization, struggle to over
come and reaffirmation of reality.
He said coping with grief often
took over a year, and usually the
bereaved experienced the various
parts of the curve more than once.
Grievers should take the time to
write down their personal reflections,

.women, he said.
' Lucas said that to conquer the
.suffering brought on by idealization
"of the lost lover, individuals should
force themselves to remember the
negative experiences of the
Those suffering from grief are
helped mostly by non-judgmental
people who listen to them, give them
hugs and ask how they can be of
help, he said. "Be there in whatever
role they feel you can play."
Lucas said normal grief often
induced promiscuity, hallucinations,
loss of sleep and appetite, impulsive
behavior and thoughts of suicide.
Psychologists do not consider
these behaviors abnormal unless
they take on exaggerated or
extended forms, he said.
Lucas said that while loss and grief
were never pleasant, they should not
keep individuals from leading a full
life. He said the books "Who Dies?"
and "Meetings at the Edge" by
Stephen Levine were helpful in
learning to cope with loss.
"Find life more fulfilled out of the
losses youVe survived," he said.
As he concluded his discussion,
Lucas took off his "Life is hard .
. . " t-shirt to reveal a shirt that read
"North Carolina" in letters made by
figures of nude women.
Lucas is a stall psychologist at the
Veterans Administration hospital in
Durham and also a clinical assistant
professor in the medical psychology
department at Duke University.
