The hearing was postponed until

If a woman is raped or sexually
assaulted on UNC's campus, her
assailant is most likely someone she
knows or even dated.
"The number of assaults that the
center learns about on campus is very
small," said Mary Ann Chap, director
of the Orange County Rape Crisis
Center. "But almost every single one
is a rape by a date or acquaintance."
The issue of date and acquaintance
rape at UNC has been raised by the
recent arrest of two UNC students
who have been charged with the Aug.

Top UNC officials and student

"Date and acquaintance rape is
everywhere," Chap said. "It's not
isolated in the fraternities."
Four rapes or attempted sexual
assaults have been reported on the
UNC campus since January, Chap
said, but that number is deceptive.
"The numbers look small, but
they're not," she said. "The vast
majority of rapes, and I mean 80 to
90 percent, are not reported." ,

The letter Fordham received Tues
day recommended that a $5 increase
per semester in student fees be
implemented to fund the system.
Under the proposal, only students
who will benefit from the system
would be affected by the fee hike.
Student Congress Speaker Rob
Friedman, Student Body President
Brian Bailey, Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor and dean of Student
Affairs, and Harold Wallace, vice
chancellor for University Affairs,
signed the letter.
Officials said such an increase
would have to be approved by the
UNC's Board of Trustees and the
UNC system's Board of Governors.
In the campus election this fall,
students voted overwhelmingly in
favor of a referendum to implement
the fee increase. However, the refer

fee-paying students did not turn out
to vote on the measure.

"If you can't define it for yourself
as a rape, you certainly cant report

DeVine said, but scheduling also
depends on whether defendants in

questions prepared by Student

Each of the candidates endorsed
the proposed entertainment ticket
tax that would increase the cost of
non-sporting events seating more
than 15,000 people.
The tax has been a point of
contention between the town and
students, but candidate David
Lineberger said it helps pay for
police and clean-up services during
and after the events.

burden on the town, I think this
is a logical place for money to come

inhibitions go down."
Chap agreed. "There is definitely
a relationship," she said. "The use of
alcohol increases the victim's vulner
ability. She's not thinking clearly, and
she can't react quickly. The problem
lies in making yourself vulnerable. It's
