Grabiner suggested his math abil ity might have something to do with the fact that his father is a college mathematics professor. "Like anything else, ... (math ability) is a combination of natural ability and practice," said Bill Cross, 18, of Kalamazoo, Mich. In Warsaw, the young participants from about 30 countries will be asked to solve three problems daily for two days in the competition for gold, silver and bronze medals, said Rousseau. - The International Mathematics Olympiad began in 1959 among Eastern Bloc countries and was later expanded, said Rousseau. A different country hosts the event each year. - The United States first entered the competition in 1974. The U.S. team has taken several first-place awards and finished second last year, when the competition was held in Finland, Rousseau said. Rousseau was optimistic about the team's chance of making a good showing in 1986. "Certainly, it is a good, strong team," he said. "I am fairly optimistic.' Grabiner said he thought the team's showing would depend upon BOT the questions. "We are a good team, but we are not an awesome team," said his teammate Jeremy Kahn, 16, of New York City. Other team members are 17-year-old Joseph Keane, of Pittsburgh, and John Overdeck, 16, of Columbia, Md. The U.S. team is sponsored in the competition by the Mathematics Association of America, which obtains government grants for the team's travel expenses and the cost of the training session, said Rousseau. from page 1 H986 Tribun Media Services.

The BOT agreed to take another tour of the fraternity houses and possibly push to condemn some of the structures that are not making efforts toward improvement. In other business Friday, the BOT approved plans and specifications for a new security services building to house the University police and the traffic, transportation and parking offices. The 11,000 square-foot building is to be located on Manning Drive below Morrison dormitory. Also, Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III gave his annual report to the BOT informing them of some recent developments. He said that this summer the campus is far from quiet because of 1 1,000 students enrolled in the two sessions of summer school in addition to several conferences being held on different parts of " the campus. The Kenan Institute for the Study of Private Enterprise is now under construction, and the Small Business and Devel opment Technology Center has recently opened. Fordham said applications for the fall term have risen 21 percent over last year's, despite a falling number of students graduating from North Carolina high schools. French hyphenate names under law Don't Thrive in SmoEse-ffilled Ulombs From Associated Press reports PARIS What's in a name? Hyphens and confusion in France, where a new law allows citizens to multiply their monikers? Under the law, which takes effect this week, any French man or woman can add the name of his or her mother, wife, husband or in-law to the existing family name at the beginning, the end or even in the middle. Thus, Ms. Dupond, daughter of Mr. Dupond and Ms. Smith and wife of Mr. Martin, son of Mr. Martin and Ms. Dubois, can choose to go by Ms. Dupond-Smith, Martin, Martin-Dubois, Dupond-Martin or Dupond-Martin-Dubois, to name a few. Before, names could only be changed through elaborate and expensive administrative procedures. The new name can be used on all administrative documents, identity cards, drivers licenses and checks, though each is to specify which is the family name still the father's name passed from generation to generation. It was not immediately clear whether there would be a rush on name changes, but it appeared certain that the bureaucracy would have trouble digesting the prospec tive changes. Computerized, government agen cies have already warned they can deal with no more than 25 letters in a name. Council approves new plant 968- 1500 . 1 r plZZA SSSS5.

The council did, however, stipulate several conditions to please Chapel Hill residents. There was no debate before the vote Monday night but townspeople had protested the plant at prior public hearings. Under the conditions, the Univer sity agreed to handle all coal in enclosed areas. The town hopes this will reduce the noise level of he plant. Also, the exterior design of the plant will be improved and since the plant will have room for the addition of a boiler in the future if needed, the town asked that their approval be necessary for future expansion.
