Greek system yooltes to raise foods ioir cancer
By SONY A JACKSON
The UNC Inter-Fraternity and
Panhellenic councils are joining
forces to raise money for the Line
berger Cancer Research Center
during the first Greek Week Benefit.
Thirty-two sororities and fraterni
ties have planned activities for March
21-28, including an a cappella con
cert, human charades, a comedy act,
a step show and a battle of the bands.
"The Lineberger Center is
nationally recognized for the services
it provides in cancer research, and it
is a vital part of the University and
medical community," said Leah
Totten, co-chairwoman of the

"We feel that the center more than
deserves our attention and funds
because of the esteem it has brought
the University and its need for funds
in breast cancer research," she said.
The main sources of revenue will
be sponsor and individual donations
and T-shirt and cup sales, Totten said.
"We don't want to estimate a figure
because it's the first time that this has
been done," she said. "We plan to
take this year's figure and set a goal
for the following years."

is an enlightened and humane project,
and I support it with enthusiasm."
The benefit is designed to "raise
money for the Lineberger Center,
promote inter-fraternal and inter
sororal relations and foster relations
between Greeks and administrative
faculty," said Brent Milgrom, pres
ident of the Inter-Fraternity Council
and benefit co-chairman.
Another goal of the benefit is to
improve the image of Greek organ
izations, Totten said.

Recurring and repressive are the
cycles of life as lived by characters
in "History of a Staircase." The Lab
Theatre's current production, this
drama by Antonio Buero-Vallejo
portrays life in a run-down Spanish
apartment house over the span of
three generations of inhabitants.
Never before has "History" been
performed in English. Director Susy
Layer translated the work from its
original Spanish and adapted it for
The play seems well-suited to the
physical conditions of the Lab Thea
tre in that the focal prop the
staircase easily fits in Graham
Memorial's minute basement theater.
The closed-in atmosphere also
reflects the theme of entrapment,
which runs through the play, as well
as the feeling of being in a stairwell.
The idealism of youth and the
disillusionment and bitterness that
come with aging are other themes
central to the play. Characters dream
and romance, struggle with poverty
and resentment, watch their parents
die and their children repeat their own
lives. But as life goes on, the staircase
All action takes place on the stairs
leading up to the four apartments
where the characters live. The people
involved are amazingly public and do
everything out in the stairwell, from
proposing marriage to smoking to
grieving the death of a spouse.
Considering how central the staircase
is to their lives, the most common
threat is to throw someone down the
stairs, and the most common w ay of
defusing a conflict is to go inside an
"History" is an ensemble work
without a genuine star. Kasey Jones
makes her character, Paca the loud

ages well, making Paca feisty and
formidable in middle age and infuri

Paca's family includes her son
Urbano as the worker who pins his
hopes on unionization, her daughter

In the past, sororities and frater
nities have had various fund-raisers
for different charities, Milgrom said.
"This year we thought we would
be able to sponsor a much larger
benefit if each house co-sponsored an
event," Totten said.
All Greek organizations are par
ticipating in the event, except Delta
Kappa Epsilon fraternity, Milgrom.
"Some chose not to participate due
to financial difficulties and skepti

its neighbors are the play's storyline.
One of the neighbors is Fernando

up marrying for a bit of money

out of poverty and out of a rut. Maria

wife Elvira, and Stacey Evans comes
across as downright spaced-out as his

do's friend Urbano is well-played by
Andy Ward who brings a certain
good-old-boy quality to the role.
The subject matter of "History" is
fairly heavy material, and at times the
acting is rather overdone, especially
in the romantic scenes. Luckily, there
are a few humorous touches, mostly
ironic, which lighten the overall mood
somewhat. The fact that the audience
does not become too emotionally
involved with the individual charac
ters also keeps the work from being
hopelessly weighed down with gloom.
Arguing is something the cast can
really do well, a good thing consid

between households, in which every
body comes out into the stairwell, is
a verbal slugfest. The audience's close
proximity-to the action make the
bickering all the more realistic; there
is a sense of being in the building and

unsightly personal conflicts right out
