Turkey has lured habitual dieters
as a tasty way to watch their weight.
Faddists in California have
embraced turkey as a way to cut
calories and raise consciousness.
Charles Brewer, turkey specialist
with N.C. State University's Depart
ment of Poultry Science, said the
public's appetite for turkey has
grown appreciably since North
Carolina became the nation's leading
turkey producer five years ago. "The
consumer is playing a hie. bie role,"
Woodnouse said turkey and
chicken production is scheduled to
surpass beef consumption next year
for the first time ever.
Thanksgiving without turkey is
like Wheel of Fortune without

Carolinians can breathe easy as our
friends down on the farm have come
through with a record crop.

are causing a civil war between their

Others feel Lifes Rich Pageant is the
best LP the band has made. One
thing is certain: everyone knows
what Micheal Stipes is singing, but
they still don't know what he means.
Maybe the band's popularity has
increased because people can now

Tapestry, by Alexia Deleaux, will
be presented by the Lab Theatre this
weekend. Directed by senior Sibby
Anderson, the play tells the story of
Jet (played by sophomore Sherri
Belfield), a young black female
lawyer from rural Georgia who seeks
to change the world that controls
Other characters in Tapestry
include Jet's boyfriend Axis (played
by senior Greg Bargeman) and
Professor Wayne (played by senior

Artist shows icons

Sheila Elias already knew when
she was a young girl that she was
going to be an artist. With the
conviction of an eight-year-old,
she announced to her mother that
she was ready to quit school to
A Chicago native, Elias told
her mother she wanted to go daily
to the "building with the lions on
it," the Chicago Art Institute.
Although she and her mother
had to work out a compromise
at the time, Elias did grow up to
be an artist and her paintings,
currently displayed in the Union
Gallery, prove she still has the
conviction and energy of an eight-year-old.

she calls "the chaos and caco

Elias currently lives and works
in Los Angeles but also has a loft
in New York where she works on
many of her paintings. "I like to
work on both coasts on one
painting," she said Monday. "The

She loves to use "trompe l'oeil"
