A course about critical issues in the
AIDS crisis is being offered for the
first time in the School of Public
Health this semester.
The course was the brainchild of
second-year graduate student Jay
Neufeld. "The course is not designed
as an in-depth, difficult course, but
to give people the facts so they can
make decisions in dealing with the
AIDS epidemic," he said.
The new course, "Issues in Health
Care (AIDS Epidemic)" or HPAA
33, is the only course in the School
of Public Health that is specifically
designed to address AIDS, he said.
About 100 students are enrolled in
the one-hour credit course. The class
is not limited to public health stu
dents, and space is still available,

Although fraternity pranks, messy
houses and rowdy parties are nothing
new, the fun and games at UNC may
have reached a dangerous low, and
national Greek organizations may be
powerless to help.
In the last two years, UNC frater
nity members have been involved in
gambling rings, hazing and a rape
case. But the most pervasive problem
appears to be low-quality housing.
Most fraternity housing falls under
the jurisdiction of local fraternity
chapters and housing corporations,
which are responsible for maintaining
the houses, said Todd Stufflebeam,
assistant executive director of the
National Interfraternity Council.
"I can think of places you would
think were the Taj Mahal," Stuffle
beam said. "Some fraternities have no
open parties, no alcohol and the

he said. If protesters had approached
their causes more like the Indians,
pulling together as a community,
Deloria said many of their protests
would have made a greater impact.
The American women's movement
could also learn from Indian culture,
Indian women play a larger role
in their society than the average
American woman does, he said.
"In tribes, men are the chiefs and
women are the clan mothers, choos

he said. "They look at a person's

support services continue," he said.

Stufflebeam attributes the chapter

as well as the lack of housing
corporation involvement and the
small amount of money reinvested
into house improvement.
But the housing problems may also
have roots in national organizations
failure to provide guidelines for
acceptable chapter housing.

remain minimally involved after
establishing the corporations.

Special to the DTH
As long as there have been frater
nity houses at UNC, town residents
have complained about loud parties
and littered yards. But in recent
months, housing condemnations and
rape charges have overshadowed the
usual complaints, worrying some
"My personal opinion is that
fraternities are more out of control
then they used to be," said James
Cansler, associate vice chancellor of
The serious charges against frater
nities began in November 1986, when
a Daily Tar Heel story told of
widespread gambling on campus.
Three of the gamblers interviewed
said thousands of dollars were bet
each week at their fraternity houses.

management program to its chapters.
The program sends field secretaries
to examine the houses, said Kelly
Powers, director of business affairs
for the national Phi Gamma Delta
office. The secretaries gauge intang
ible risks, such as the fraternity's
actions, and actual risks, such as a
broken step or handrail, Powers said.
"Enforcement comes from the local
housing corporations," Powers said.
"It's more a local matter."

may have drifted too far on Aug. 20,
when an early-morning sexual
encounter led to second-degree rape
charges against Frederick W. Harri
son and Bradley D. Bowers.
According to a UNC junior's
testimony at a probable cause hearing
Nov. 18, she was drunk and trying
to walk to a friend's dormitory room
when Harrison and two other men
called her to the steps of the Sigma
Phi Epsilon house.
The woman testified that she
eventually went into the house and

there, ask someone for a key to a

said. "We also try to have large pieces
of land. I think one of the problems
at UNC is that many of the houses
are arranged in a row. They are
grouped in such a way that they have
no space to move around. They can't
recover from each other."
The town inspector condemned
Chi Psi in August after finding 14
safety and housing violations. The
lodge has since corrected the prob
lems, said local president Jon Baker.
Within the next year, the National
Interfraternity Council will offer a
program called INTERCHANGE, a
self-assessment tool to help fraterni
ties set goals and develop improve
ment strategies, Stufflebeam said.
Housing is part of the self-assessment
criteria, he said. But to participate in
the program, the local interfraternity
council must voluntarily request it,
he said. Other than the housing self

officials say fraternity houses will
continue to cause trouble.

Despite the lack of national guide
lines, Stufflebeam said the decline of
UNC fraternities surprised him.
"UNC is such a traditional South
ern school," he said. "I just assumed
the fraternities would have a lot of
tradition, like house mothers, sere

The problems, however, aren't
confined to bricks and concrete.
Many fraternity members have
dropped serenading and gentleman
liness, going beyond cute fraternity
pranks to crime.
Nude runs, forcing pledges to drink
large quantities of beer and midnight
kidnappings are popular events
during pledge periods.
"All of the fraternities (in NIC)
agreed that there would be no hazing
in fraternities," Stufflebeam said.
