Student Congress passed a resolu
tion Wednesday recommending that
the Office of Admissions add six staff
members to process applications
because more students are applying
to UNC than ever before.
About 10,000 students applied for
admission to UNC in 1983, and that
number rose to more than 20,000 in
1988. But the number of staff
members in the admissions office has
not grown during this five-year

Chapel Hill revelers should find
no shortage of fun this weekend
as Burnout, Springfest and Caro
lina Beach Blast three all-day
band parties usher in spring.
About 5,000 partygoers are
expected at the 12th annual Pi
Kappa Phi Burnout, which kicks
off at 1:30 p.m. Friday, fraternity
member Jim Mackey said. The
Fidgets will open for Guadalcanal
Diary, a progressive rock band
from Atlanta. Students can also
enter the Hawaiian Tropic Bikini
Fraternity members hope to
raise about $5,000 for the N.C.

already three-fourths of the way
there on T-shirt sales," he said.
Members will raffle items

vice president for communications,
said Wednesday that she does not
think Spangler will reject Hardin.
Barbara Melcher, Hardin's secre
tary, said Wednesday that Hardin
would not comment until the BOG
makes its final decision. She said that
Hardin feels it would be premature
to say anything at this point.
Bryan Davis, a desk attendant at
the Carolina Inn, said Hardin has
reservations at the inn for April 7 to
Oliva could not be reached for
comment Wednesday, but Howard
Levine, assistant vice president of
public affairs at NYU, said Oliva
withdrew his name from considera
tion for the UNC position because
he is happy at NYU.
In the letter sent to Spangler, dated
March 31, Oliva said, ". . . my
decision to withdraw from the UNC
CH search has enormously to do with
m adM5im staff
tion to get to work," he said. "We
don't know how effective it will be,
but (we) think it will be (effective)
with enough follow-up."
- - The resolution states that the office
is instrumental in ensuring that the
best possible students attend UNC,
and admitting high-quality students
is vital to the continuing improve
ment of UNC.
"It's obvious that there is a des
perate need for more staff to inform
high school students as to the require
ments for admission; to encourage
those students to apply and to attend
UNC; and to retain the best possible
students for this university," Davis
Student Body President Kevin

Committee members are selling the
booklet for 50 cents to cover the costs
of printing and paper.
According to the booklet's first
entry, the Mozambique Liberation
Front assumed power in June 1975,
beginning a Marxist government
experiment and ending nearly 500
years of Portuguese colonial rule.
Since 1975, Mozambicans have
been plagued by drought and guerilla
attacks by the Mozambique National

Partygoers will not be allowed
to park on Finley Golf Course
Road or N.C. 54, Mackey said.
Chapel Hill police will block off
Finley Golf Course Road to all
traffic except emergency vehicles
and golf traffic, and anyone parked
on the road will be towed, he said.
Buses will shuttle students to the
party about every 15 minutes at no
charge, starting at 1:30 p.m. Pick
up sites are the Morehead Building,
Fraternity Court, the Student
Union and Ehringhaus field.
Students can take shuttle buses
back to campus from Plantation
Plaza starting at 2 p.m. Buses will
continue to run as long as traffic
flows smoothly, Mackey said.

work at New York University and

those of NYU.
"(T)he decision has little to do with
Chapel Hill, which is unquestionably
one of the great public universities
in this country."
Although Oliva initially said he did
not approve of the amount of pub
licity surrounding the search, it
probably helped him clarify his
feelings and gave people at NYU a
chance to talk to him about the
possible job change, Levine said.
In the letter to Spangler, Oliva said,
". . . sometimes it is from a little
distance that one's own real commit
ments are most clearly seen."
Both NYU and Drew University
are private colleges. About 45,000
students are enrolled at NYU, includ
ing 14,000 undergraduates, Levine
said. Drew has about 3,000 students.
Martin introduced several resolutions
to confirm his appointments to
campus boards and committees.
The congress approved Wilborn
Roberson as Elections Board chair
man. During debate, representatives
expressed concern about the prob
lems with past campus elections, like
pollsite closings and inaccurate voting
Roberson outlined plans to intro

would be faster, better organized and
more accurate than the system now

South African government denies
sponsoring the MNR.
In August 1987, National Public
Radio broadcast a series of reports
on Mozambique that Tjepkema said
inspired her to contact the Crisis
Fund and World Relief, two Pres
byterian Church organizations
involved in Mozambican relief.
"The series was depressing, but it
made me want to say that I care,"
Tjepkema said. "The reason that
Action Against Apartheid is con
cerned with Mozambique is the direct
association of the MNR with the
South African government."

March to focus attention
on women's safety issues
By R.L INGLE
An expected 400 to 500 students
and area residents will converge on
the Arboretum Thursday to partic
ipate in a Take Back the Night march
sponsored by the Campus Y Wom
The march will begin with a rally
in the area between Howell Hall,
Morehead Building and the Arbore
tum at 8 p.m. and will proceed to
the Pit via East Franklin and South
Columbia streets and past the Bell
Tower on South Road.
The march and rally are designed
to raise community awareness and
educate the participants about rape

Nearly every page of "Mozam
bique" documents an incident of
MNR terrorist activity. Particularly
notable are the entries describing the
Homoine massacre of June 1987. As
a result of the MNR's attack on that
coastal village, 424 people died.
Among the dead were infants and
hospital patients who were shot in
Having repeatedly called the MNR
"freedom-fighters," N.C. Senator
Jesse Helms later described the
massacre as a "clear setup."
Helms' statement, Tjepkema said,

is to raise awareness on campus and
to show that there are a lot of people
who care," she said.

was abducted and later killed in the
fall of 1985.
One in four women on college
campuses are victims of rape or
attempted rape, Lindsey said. Of
those, about 94 percent are victims
of acquaintance rape, she said.
During a march, those victims can
see that they can take control of their
situations, Holloway said.
