Campps plageed toy thief
By MARIA HAREN
An unidentified man, described only as being 30 to
35 years old, stole a total of $44 from six North Campus
women's dormatory rooms Tuesday in what Campus
Police believe to be related incidents.
Police reports listed a 10:45 p.m. breaking and
entering incident at Ruffin Dormitory, where a resident
returned to her unlocked and unattended room to find
a man holding her wallet. She said the man simply
handed her the wallet and walked out.
At 4:45 p.m., police went to Spencer dormitory where
several thefts had taken place. In all four cases the
rooms had been left unlocked and unattended. Two
residents had $5 stolen from their purses; $12 was stolen
from the purse of one resident and $22 from another.
At 8:00 p.m. in Cobb dormitory, a wallet was taken
from a room the resident had locked.
Sgt. Ned Comar, of University Police, said the theft
rate is higher than last year at this time. He said the
thefts were due mostly to student carelessness, their
willingness to risk theft by not locking their doors or
dimply not knowing to keep their doors locked at all
"Students say, 'this won't happen to me,' " Comar
said. Since students find it inconvenient to always lock
their doors, they should own a footlocker, he said. Sold
at most department stores, the footlockers cost $25 to
To decrease their chances of theft even more, Comar
said, students should always report suspicious persons
around their dorms."To report a suspicious person,"
he said, "don't wait 8 hours and casually make mention
of it to your RA. Go immediately and quietly to the
phone and call Campus Police."
,This form of action will put would-be thieves on
notice, he said, because people would call even if they
just look suspcious.
Comar said a typical thief is usually not a student,
but a person from the town of Chapel Hill or Carrborro.
"Leaches come to campus to suck the goods out of
students without doing any work," he said. "Usually
the same 5 percent of the population do all the crime
. , . . If they keep at it, they usually get found and are
tried for a conglomerate of things."
North Campus dorms are the worst hit by thieves
because they are closest to town and if the thief does
not "get what he wants, hell go until he gets his Coke
money or whatever it is he's looking for," Comar said.
Students should keep their wallets locked in their
rooms or lockboxes, he said, and carry only the money
they will need to class. "The thief will have to risk
himself many more times to afford lunch," Comar said.
The most frequently stolen articles are money,
jewelery and credit cards, he said.
Jobs open as ..students returni
By MELODY CREECH
Since the beginning of time supply
and demand have run hand in hand.
If a demand is present, the need must
be supplied. With the new surge of

Wings on W. Franklin Street, is in
need of delivery persons to work
various shifts for an average pay of
$6 to $8 per hour.
At the other end of the scope, most
students feel they can take a job,
make some extra cash and manage
their studies with no problem.

haw, N.C., has been working in the
UNC Photo Lab in Swain Hall for

Men react to primate warnings
From Associated Press reports
NEW YORK Humans may
recoil from the sound of fingernails
on blackboards because it's similar
to danger warning cries made by
other primates, Northwestern Uni
versity researchers report.
The researchers recorded the
sounds made by scraping a metal

naturally occurring noises.
"We discovered the scraping
sound bears a strong resemblance to
the warning cries emitted by mon
keys in the wild," they wrote in an
article published in the September
issue of Psychology Today.
"Based on this resemblance, we
speculate that our spine-tingling
aversion to sounds like fingernails
scraped over a surface may be a
vestigal reflex inherited by our
primate ancestors," pyschologist
Randolph Blake wrote.
The researchers also filtered the
noise so they could separate high and
Blake and psychologists Lynn
Halpern and James Hillenbrand
found that volunteers' reactions to
the different frequencies were not
what they expected.
"Contrary to our expectations, we
found that removing the high fre
quencies had no effect on the sound's
unpleasantness," wrote Blake.
When just the lower frequencies
were removed, however, the high
frequencies on their own were rated
"quaint and not at all unpleasant."
