The Carolina Athletic Associa
tion's (CAA) plan for an on-campus
nighttime pep rally and band party
before the Oklahoma football game
Sept. 10 was canceled by the Depart
ment of University Housing because
of security concerns.
The CAA was denied permission
to hold an all-campus pep rally in
front of Connor Residence Hall, part
of Henderson Residence College.
Security, traffic control, noise and the
potential size of the gathering were
reasons listed by Wayne Kuncl,
"That could be a fairly large rally,
as it should be," Kuncl said. "There
are too many risks involved in having
an activity of that size after dark in
the area of those residence halls."
Other large group activities, like
Springfest, have been allowed in
residence areas because they were
scheduled during the day, Kuncl said.
"Our major concern was having it
after dark," he said. "I've never
approved one (nighttime all-campus
event) in the time I've been here,

College costs have gone up 150
percent since the 1970s, and student
aid has increased at double the rate
of inflation, to keep up with the
increases, according to Melinda
Kitchell, a public affairs specialist in
the U.S. Department of Education.
"We understand that colleges have
increasing costs, but we , think the
colleges aren't doing enough to
control costs," Kitchell said. "(Edu

tion of the campus police."
Jim Weaver, Henderson Residence
College area director, said security
and noise were his major concerns,
and that the event would place a
strain on the area staff, especially this
early in the year.
"There is a definite noise issue, and
security as far as the people in the
halls," he said. "Something like that
attracts a lot of non-students. We're
not opposed to a pep rally, but
security is our concern."
Dean of Students Frederic
Schroeder agreed, saying past night
time events have caused security
"Every time we do this, there is a
fair amount of concern," he said.
"How do you make it as safe as you
can? All it takes is one unfortunate
incident for that to be very much
brought to home for all of us."
CAA President Carol Geer said the
problems with an on-campus site
caused the organization to relocate
the rally to the Sigma Phi Epsilon
fraternity house. The forced move
was frustrating, she said, because the

"There is a group of people who
don't feel all that comfortable going

everybody. HRC would have been
ideal, but the Sig Eps have been
cooperative and helpful."
The organization wants to make
the event next week especially access

year will be important, Geer said.
"Coach Brown's coming, and we
really want to pack it," she said. "This
is the first time we've ever had a coach
who really wanted to come."
The change in location, although
frustrating, wasn't much of an obsta

"It could have been a very big
problem, but the Sig Eps were very
willing," she said. "We're frustrated
because we thought that (HRC) was
an ideal place, but apparently we were
wrong, jt only makes sense to have
an all-campus event on campus. It's
pretty difficult to find a neutral place
where everyone's wiling to come."

parking control officials said
Completion of the lot was delayed
after the first two bids for the
construction contract were incom

The University will wait until
February to take bids again because
construction probably would not
begin until March anyway, said
Gordon Rutherford, director of
College Board. In the peak years of
1982-83, tuitions rose 13 percent at
four-year private schools and 20
percent at public schools.
And college costs have risen 80
percent faster than the median family
income, Kitchell said. An Education
Department survey from December
1986 found that 82 percent of Amer

college will soon be out of reach for
average Americans, she said.

Kuncl said he called Mary Clayton,
director of transportation, when the
mistake was brought to his attention
Thursday. Clayton told him that
sophomores are allowed to have
permits, he said.
Kuncl said he is trying to find out
how the mistake happened in the first
place. He said he has asked several
housing employees and none have
known what caused the error.
Associate Housing Dector Collin
Rustin, who is in charge of compiling
the booklet, is out of town until
Tuesday, Kuncl said.
Clayton said Thursday that sopho
mores are and have been eligible to
have parking permits.
"There are 200-and-some-odd

said. "I'm not clear on where they

Part of the problem may be the
fact that the University is so large that
it is not not uncommon for mistakes
to occur between two departments,

aware of the problem too late to

editions will be corrected, he said.
