MOSCOW Soviet leader Mik

the White House of "gross misrepres

Reykjavik summit, but he said the
superpowers could still work out
A member of the Soviet summit
delegation, meanwhile, reiterated
Soviet claims that President Reagan
had agreed in principle to a proposal
to eliminate all Soviet and U.S.
nuclear weapons in 10 years.
The Reagan administration has
disputed the claim. White House
spokesman Larry Speakes said
Monday in Washington that Reagan
discussed abolition of all nuclear
arms during the summit but never
proposed more than the elimination
of all ballistic missiles in 10 years.

Further study is needed before a
guaranteed sophomore housing
policy goes into effect, the Residence
Hall Association decided Monday
after hearing from Wayne Kuncl,
housing director, and Collin Rustin,
assistant housing director.
RHA did not receive a formal
presentation of the housing proposal
until last night, and Ray Jones, RHA
president, said there were too many
unanswered questions about the
impact of the policy to reach a
conclusion in time for the spring
housing lottery. Kuncl and Rustin
had said they wanted to reach a
decision about the policy within the
next few weeks.
Rustin told RHA members that
the demand for housing was coming
from sophomores, not juniors and
"What we're responding to now
is five years of history, five years of
complaints and five years of
demands," he said.
Kuncl said there was a natural
progression of upperclassmen want
ing to live off campus. Only 1,600
out of 7,000 students living in the
residence halls are junior or seniors.

Sigma Chi's to jump for charity
By JULIE BRASWELL
Fraternity fellows from Sigma Chi
will be jumping up and down this
week in the three-day Trampoline-a-thon,

place during Sigma Chi's Derby
Days, an annual charity event to
benefit the Frankie Lemmon School
and Developmental Center in
All week, Sigma Chi and 15
sororities will sponsor various fund
raising events, including Greek track
and field events.
Sigma Chi chapters nationwide
participate in this tradition, which
started more than 60 years ago. Its
name comes from the Kentucky
Derby, according to Jeffrey Krenk,
this year's Derby Daddy, the brother
in charge of Derby Days. Krenk has

Each sorority's shapeliest pair of
legs will be in a daily photo display
in the Pit until Thursday. At the legs
booth, voters put money in a con
tainer under the legs they like the
latest in a series of efforts to counter
U.S. accounts of what the superpow
ers tentatively agreed to before they
reached a stalemate at the summit
over the U.S. Strategic Defense
Initiative, or "Star Wars."
"At the recent meeting with the
U.S. president in Reykjavik, the
Soviet side put on the table a package
of interlinked proposals" on arms
control, Gorbachev said in a message
to a writers conference in Bulgaria.
His remarks were carried by the
official Soviet news agency Tass.
Gorbachev said the proposals
included an initial 50 percent cut in
strategic nuclear weapons, elimina
tion of all medium-range missiles in
Europe, a ban on the testing of space
weapons and a nuclear test ban.
"If the American side had accepted

said, adding that juniors and seniors
are better prepared to move off
According to Kuncl, guaranteed
sophomore housing also would
reduce the number of students on
the housing waiting list and speed
up the placement of those left on the
"The senior is going to get in, the
junior is going to get in, and
sophomores are going to get in if
they're willing to wait it out on the
list," he said.
Rustin said the policy would
ensure a high occupancy rate for the
residence halls, which would offset
the need for increased room rent. He
also said that guaranteed housing
would reduce the stress felt by rising
sophomores who were worried
about finding a place to live after
being closed out of the dorm.
Bryan Hassel, student body pres
ident, who also was at the meeting,
said reducing sophomore stress was
not a justification for the new policy.
"Everybody has a lot of stress,"
he said. "When you're a senior, we
don't guarantee jobs. We give you
counseling, guidance and materials
to look over. If you really want to
meet the demands of students, you
should provide services for people to
most. The photo which receives the
most donations wins. Phi Mu sor

for three consecutive years.
But girls haven't always been the
winners of the legs competition,
Krenk said. "One year, a house
submitted a photo of its cat's legs,"
Krenk said. And the feline's furry
legs raised more money than any pair
of human legs.
The biggest money-maker,
according to Krenk, is the
Trampoline-a-Thon. Sigma Chi
brothers and pledges begin jumping
at 7 p.m. Wednesday and finish at
7 p.m. Saturday, 72 hours later.

take donations while jumping.

Coaches responsible for recruits
By JEAN LUTES
Assistant University Editor
When coaches actively recruit
athletes who must be admitted as
exceptions to UNC-CH's admission
policy, they .are responsible for
helping students academically,
UNC-CH officials said Monday in
response to the First Annual Report
on Intercollegiate Athletics.
A compilation of studies from
nine UNC-system schools, the inter
collegiate athletics report included
graduation rates and Scholastic
Aptitude Test scores of athletes in
the UNC system.
According to the report, 22
"exceptions" UNC-CH athletes
with below-800 SAT scores were
actively recruited. The graduation
rate for UNC-CH athletes five years
after they entered the University is
The Board of Governors last year
asked UNC-system schools to report
on their athletic programs because
too many student-athletes were
admitted as exceptions to standard
academic procedures, said UNC
system President CD. Spangler.
"Last year there was a strong
feeling that the number of exceptions
was too many, and the Board of
Governors asked that it be altered,"
he said. "Any exception is too many.
"Coaches take a great risk in
recruiting students that are excep
tions," Spangler said. "They have
responsibility to see that the students
get the support they need to
Officials set off by fire alarms
By TOM CAMP
If you think pulling a fire alarm
after a few Thursday night beers
is a funny prank, the joke may
be on you, according to the
Chapel Hill's fire marshal.
The maximum punishment for
tampering with fire alarms or fire
protection equipment of any kind
is a $500 fine and six months in
prison, said Joe Robertson,
Chapel Hill fire marshal.
Pulling a false alarm is a serious
matter, Robertson said, and the
station has had more false calls
this year than ever before.
False alarms on campus since
January 1986 have outnumbered
the total false alarms for the entire
town of Chapel Hill last year.
But the majority of students are
not to blame, Robertson said.
"It's a very small sector of the
population doing this," he said.
"But when we catch them, we're
going to hang them up high to
dry out, and we're not going to
let them down for a while. We've
got full support of the district

The reports from the nine Division
I schools are positive, he said, and
athletic programs have made pro
gress toward reducing the number
of exceptions to the admission
policy. " "
All UNC-system schools except
UNC-CH reported declines in the
number of exceptions made to admit
athletes. Students admitted as excep
tions at one school may not be
considered exceptions at another
school, said Richard Baddour,
associate director of athletics at
"You really can't look at a total
number and assume they are all
made on the same basis," he said.
"There are different standards at
UNC-CH's admission procedure
for athletes has been detailed and
lengthy for years, Baddour said, and
its standards have always been high.
Also, he said the Athletic Office is
not involved in admissions. "What

several reasons, Robertson said.
Primarily, residence-hall occu
pants are subject to injury whe
never a fire alarm is sounded,
because of the high tension
involved in evacuating.
"Someone really could get
hurt," said Al Calarco, associate
director of housing. "Disorienting
people in the middle of the night
can be a severe problem. For
instance, when 700-800 people are
trying to get out of a place like
Granville Towers, there is a
tremendous potential for injury."

probably better than most, he said.
Although UNC-CH had one of
the highest graduation rates for
recruited athletes, the University still
wants to improve the rate, Fordham
said. The number of freshman and
"Sophomore dropouts has decreased,
and the University is expanding its
academic support system for ath
letes, he said.
The Department of Athletics'
academic support program was
placed under the General College
and the College of Arts and Sciences
in June, Fordham said. It's too early
to tell if the reorganization will
improve the program, he said.
"I'm optimistic and enthusiastic
about our programs," Fordham said.
"Our coaches and athletic director
are concerned about our academic
UNC-CH's graduation rate after
five years of study for football
players recruited in fall 1980 is 32
percent; for recruited male basket
ball players, 80 percent; and for
female basketball players, 67
The different graduation rates for
recruited athletes in different sports
is partly due to individual coaching
efforts, Spangler said. "The gradua
tion rate that Dean Smith has of his
basketball players is exemplary, the
envy of other nationally-ranked
teams," he said. "He impresses upon
his players the importance of aca

"When people hear false alarms
night after night," he said, "a lot
of them won't respond to them."
When people ignore the alarm,
trust is broken and the system
fails, Calcarco said. "It's so
important that students respond
to the system as if it is a major
emergency." he said. "This cry
