6The Daily Tar Heel Friday, November 14, 1986 "Fans eagerly await R. By JAMES BURRUS Staff Writer The R.E.M. and Let's Active concert at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium Saturday night should be the concert of the year for area college students. The concert was sold out two days after tickets went on sale, leaving a lot of the bands fans scrounging for TlirlCSy from page 1 said there were four major turkey processing plants in North Carolina: Cuddy, in Union County; House of Rayford in Rayford; and two firms in Duplin County, Swift and Carol ina Turkeys. 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," Brewer said. 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 Vanna White. But this year, North Carolinians can breathe easy as our friends down on the farm have come through with a record crop.

Some students are even going to UNC at Wilmington Sunday night or to William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Va., to see the four Georgian boys. While R.E.M. is busy being com mercially successful with their cur rent album Lifes Rich Pageant, they are causing a civil war between their fans. Some are accusing the band of selling out to the forces of commer cial success and national popularity. 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 sing along with Stipes. Lab Theatre weaves By BETH MEEKINS Staff Writer 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 her. Other characters in Tapestry include Jet's boyfriend Axis (played by senior Greg Bargeman) and Professor Wayne (played by senior Greg Cavenaugh). "Professor Wayne is a very nasty, bad guy," Cavenaugh said of his role. "He teaches the law in the textbooks and 1 hrwk 1 hrwk 5 hrswk 2Vi hrswk 2Vi hrswk 12 hrs x 1 6 weeks 1 92 hours Granville Towers TM UNIVERSITY SQUARE 919929-7143' - - : j - , '" " W . 1 " ' ' f - ' J ,. .,,,,.n,,M,,.,,mM.,r,i.,,Mni,m.mmitirtmlMA i Staff? n tftlMtMliHtMii M As "the Beatles of college radio" (so dubbed by Spin magazine) head into hometown country, one would expect the band to get more enthu siastic. Let's hope the concerts are getting better. The November 20 edition of Rolling Stone gave an unfavorable review of R.E.M.'s Los Angeles concert, calling the tour "business as usual" and "a comfor table ritual." The opening band, Let's Active, is a nice addition to the bill. This North Carolina band, featuring the multi-talented Mitch Easter, has close ties to R.E.M. Easter produced their first album Chronic Town and co-produced Murmur with Don Dixon. He has also produced albums for other bands in his Drive-in (also teaches) that within these textbook laws, there will be no changes. "Jet is very naive and idealistic and sees education in two ways: she knows she has to learn the rules of law, but she also sees that the rules are designed to exclude certain people," Cavenaugh said. "Professor Wayne symbolizes education as something that controls Jet and something that she herself cannot control," said junior Darrin Poole, the play's stage manager. "The staging in the play is multiple scenic in order to convey the distor tion in Jet's life." The ensemble has an important Granville Towers weekly maid service full & partial meal plans located next to campus study lounges computer room Plus physical fitness room pool social activities concert Studio in Winston-Salem. Now he is taking a break from the studio and doing a short stint with his old friends from Athens. On the strength of his latest release Big Plans for Everybody, Easter is really sounding hot. Anyone who attended the band's concerts at Cat's Cradle, October 1 and 2, knows the band is a great live attraction. Two songs from their appearances at the Chapel Hill music club will be included on the XYC Cradle Tapes, a collection of songs from the Cat's Cradle Benefit for WXYC held last Saturday. R.E.M. and Let's Active will perform Saturday at 8 p.m. in Cameron Indoor Stadium at Duke. 'Tapestry' function in the play. According to ensemble member Rose Williams, a senior, the group is like a church congregation and represents religion for Jet. "The members often mock Jet's actions but in the end, it is God that Jet puts her faith in, and the ensemble portrays that in her," she said. Author Maya Angelou ( Know Why the Caged Bird Sings) will lead a discussion of Tapestry following the Monday evening performance. Tapestry will be performed by the Lab Theatre Sunday at 8 p.m. and Monday at 4 and 8 p.m. in Graham Memorial Hall. 306 W.Franklin St. UNC Campus Franklin Spanky's Natural 24 12 oz. $(5)99 Busch 12 12 oz.

Now In Stock Plastic Flasks For Your Favorite Spirits Artist shows icons of city life in Union By GILLIAN FLOREN Staff Writer 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 pursue art. 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. Big, bold, glitzy and glamor ous, Elias' paintings in the show American Icons brim with what she calls "the chaos and caco phony of the city." 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 light is different in L.A. than in New York." Elias' works often begin with paper she has made and "tor tured," her process of wetting and molding the material. On this surface, she layers oil and acrylic paint, fabric, metallic paper, Granville Towers a Hardee's St. Soaps Fowler's Famous Walk-in Cooler!

Images of Howdy Doody, Marilyn Monroe, the Statue of Liberty and swimming fish peer out through the layers at the viewer. She loves to use "trompe l'oeil" tricks of the eye in her work to add an element of whimsy and surprise. She may glue a length of ribbon onto a painting's sur face, mimic it with a glued-on photograph of ribbon and repro duce the image once more with a painted-on ribbon. Techniques such as this cause the viewer to look and look again. Elias' artistic innovations have brought her some impressive successes in her career, including the recent distinction of having one of her works, "Two French Girls," displayed in the Louvre in Paris. Whether or not a painting makes the Louvre, it is an indi vidual to Elias, and she feels that each painting has a life of its own. Although she said she regularly has people tell her they simply do not understand art, she does not see art as something particularly mysterious or difficult to grasp. To her, art is "an expression of life and an explosion of form." American Icons will be dis played through Dec. 12 in the Union Gallery. 942-3116 FOWLED Dcrtha Plank Road 12oz.N.R.
