By SHARON KEBSCHULL
Teague Residence Hall, formerly
an all-male dormitory on Stadium
Drive, will become coed this fall,
housing director Wayne Kuncl
Almost all the men readmitted to
Teague will be spread out to other
dormitories, he said, in reaction to
problems with Teague that culmi
nated in racial incidents at the end
of the school year.
"The bottom line of what we're
doing is we're reassigning the 72
students in Teague," he said. "The
way that we're doing that is without
trying to place responsibility for a
person or persons as the cause of the
situation. It's my feeling that we need
to . . . act with regard to problems
weVe had with Teague over a long
period of time."
The housing department has taken
the 72 men's housing applications
and, on a random basis, spread them
out over the 13 dormitories or areas
of their second or third choices, Kuncl
said. About five men will return to
Teague, but the area governor,
dormitory president and dormitory
vice president will not. The housing
department will also try to honor
roommate preferences as well as
choices of single or double rooms, he
Students have been moved to all
dorms on campus except Carmichael
and Craige, he said. Thirteen men will
be moved to South Campus dorms,
seven will remain in Scott Residence
College, and the remainder will be
distributed among North Campus
halls, he said.
The spaces in Teague will be filled
with freshmen, transfers, and seven
men who were to move there after
the preliminary drawing was held last

Dormitory alum mo protest
recent decision to so coed
By SHARON KEBSCHULL
"If they're going to do this to my
old dorm, I want my money back."
That was the response Monday
from one member of a group of
former residents of Teague Residence
Hall who established the "Teague
Foundation" one year ago to raise
money for the dormitory.
Members of the foundation said
Tuesday that while they were unsure
what would happen to the fund, they
were "shocked and disappointed" by
Teague's change from all-male to
coed planned for this fall.
The decision to go coed came after
an alleged racial incident at a dor
mitory party April 21, the last day
of classes, followed by racial and
sexual harassment against the area
director for Scott Residence College,
.of which Teague is a part. Those
incidents "brought everything to a
head," according to housing director
Wayne Kuncl, who said there have
been problems with Teague for five
Foundation co-founders Kent
Smith and Allen Wilson had dis
cussed the project with Kuncl last
summer, but Kuncl did not speak
with Smith about the changes until
Wednesday when Smith called him
to set up a meeting. Kuncl agreed to
a meeting later next week, Smith said,
and alumni and student leaders will
discuss the future of the dormitory
at that meeting.
The foundation had a fund-raising
goal of $20,000 for building improve
ments, Smith said, and members had
hoped this would spur other alumni
to raise money for their former
residence halls. The Teague Founda
tion has raised some money already,
but Smith would not release the exact

Student Government, RHA team up
in distribution of student discount cards
By JAMES BENTON
UNC students began receiving
cards Wednesday that allow them to
receive discounts from local busi
nesses when they show student
identification, said Student Body
President Kevin Martin.
Student Government and the Res
idence Hall Association began
distribution of the "USA card,"
cosponsored by Student Government
and United Savings Associates
(USA), among on-campus summer
About 1,000 cards will be distrib
uted among students through resident
assistants during the first summer
school session, RHA President
Jimmy Randolph said.
The USA card has been used at
other schools across the nation by
USA and the schools' student govern
ments, Martin said.
The card is given to students after
a school's student government and
USA agree to cosponsor a card.
Martin said USA worked with local
businesses to agree on a discount rate
for students in exchange for adver
tising space on the card.
The card should improve relations
between UNC students and the local
businesses they patronize, he said.
"I think it is an encouraging idea
for student-town relations," Martin
Junior Joe Andronaco contacted
USA and organized the card project
for UNC, Martin said, and Stephanie
Ahlschwede served as a liaison from
Randolph and Martin were optim
istic about the possibilities the USA
Card has to offer. Randolph said the
card would have a "snowball effect"
if students use it.
"I think that those businesses which
are doing it (advertising on the card)
will benefit . . . and those who are
not will realize the difference,"
"I'm counting on a very positive
reaction," Martin said. "I think it is
a very positive thing for students."
Martin said the cards will be
available through the Student
Government offices in Suite C of the
Student Union and at the Union desk.
He also said he plans to have a
full distribution of the cards in
August during registration and drop-add.
