Students who have to walk alone
on campus at night can have someone
to walk with them by calling Students
Avoiding Frightening Encounters
SAFE, a student volunteer service
operating from the Campus Y, will
begin operation Oct. 16. The service
is available between 7 p.m. and 12
midnight Sunday through Thursday.
Any student wanting to use the
service can call 962-SAFE.
Julia Greer, SAFE director, said
Tuesday that almost enough students
had volunteered to work from the
Campus Y location. There are two
shifts each night with three volunteer
escorts per shift, she said.
The number of volunteers should
be enough to supply all of the students
who request escorts, Greer said.
"We are in a supply and demand
situation right now," she said. "The

"AlParte," which is Italian for "to

Chapel Hill-Carrboro area.

who is co-heading the project.

The service could eventually
expand to operate from one of the
libraries if the response is good, Greer

SAFE is an on-campus organiza
tion, Greer said.

reasonable walking distance from
campus," she said.
Greer said she hopes the rumors
about campus rapes and the incidents
of a man masturbating in front of
female students in Davis Library will
encourage more people to use the

aware of opportunities to protect

David Chickey, a senior art his
tory major who is heading the pro
ject with Turner, said the magazine
will be an outlet for people inter
ested in art in general. "We are not
opposed to what others are doing;
we just want to open up to other
people," he said.

Chickey and Turner held a poetry
reading at the Columbia Street Bak

try and prose are scheduled at the
bakery twice a month.

her predecessor did not leave her
enough information to get started at
the beginning of the semester, and
SAFE had to get a new office and
a new advisor this semester.
"I had to start from a very low
knowledge point," she said.
The service was formerly called
RAPE Escort, but Frances Turner,
the previous director, changed the
name because she thought it carried
negative connotations, Greer said.

In addition to readings, Columbia
Street Bakery will also hold art
exhibits. Space for exhibits is also
available at the Campus Y, and
Chickey and Turner are also exa
mining other options for art exhib
its. "We are working to get gallery
space," Chickey said.
The magazine will be broken up
into four departments: poetry,
prose, art and criticism. The addi
tion of criticism will make "AH'arte"
an unusual magazine.
"We are going to incorporate art
criticism to differentiate it from
other literary magazines," said
Tweed Cline, a senior art history
major in charge of the criticism.
"We will critique drawings from
Ackland Art Museum, local artists
and possible other current trends."

SAFE volunteers will wear marked
jackets identifying them as escorts.
The escort will also give the person
calling the service his name so that
the person will feel safe and be sure
of the volunteer's identity, Greer said.
The service still needs volunteers,
she said. "We're interested in having
students who care about the safety
and well-being of their fellow stu
dents," Greer said.
Stephen Moulton, a new SAFE
volunteer, said he became involved
because he thinks there is a need for
the service on campus.
"I feel it is a real problem in that
it is unsafe to walk alone on campus
at night," he said.
Moulton said being a SAFE volun
teer will only take a few hours of his
time a month. He added that he does
not expect to receive any rewards for
being a volunteer.
"I just enjoy doing service," he said.
"AH'arte" will be a free monthly
magazine. The first issue will be out
by the end of October.
"We want to get a lot of student
involvement, really a lot of involve
ment in general," Turner said. The
magazine is open to contributions
from anyone in the community.
"We are encouraging people to
turn in more radical things than they
otherwise thought they could get

activities are funded completely by
donations. Although the magazine

often seems like a suicide
attempt, but statistics
show that Chapel Hill has fewer
pedestrian fatalities than many
other cities in North Carolina.
Pedestrian accidents are gener
ally an urban problem more than
a rural one, according to Charles
Zegeer, staff associate at the
UNC Highway Research Center.
In 1987 Charlotte led the state in
pedestrian fatalities with 13,
Winston-Salem followed with
eight, Durham had seven, and
Fayetteville and Raleigh each
had three, he said.
Zegeer said that for every fatal
ity there are many more injuries
to pedestrians. The 1987 North
Carolina Traffic Accidents Facts
(NCTAF), published by the Div
ision of Motor Vehicles of the
N.C. Department of Transporta
tion, and the 1988 Tarheel Tip
sheet said that for the 230 pedes
trians killed in North Carolina in
1987, another 1,369 were

being the most frequent victims
of pedestrian accidents, 10 per
cent of North Carolina's pedes
trian deaths were children under
age 10 and 16 percent were adults
over 65, the NCTAF reported.
"We have very few pedestrian
deaths, said Chapel Hill police
planner Jane Cousins. The last

there have been five pedestrian

Pedestrian fatalities occur
more frequently at night, accord
ing to Quentin Anderson, public,
relations director at the American
Automobile Association (AAA) ,
in Charlotte. ;
Walking on the left, facing
traffic, and wearing reflective clor
thing or carrying a flashlight are .
important when walking along a
road at night, Zegeer said,
because pedestrians can see
motorists much more easily than
motorists can see pedestrians.
Ten percent of the national
pedestrian fatalities occur when
people lie in the road, Zegeer
said. These are usually nighttime,
Measures are being taken to
increase public knowledge among
pedestrians and motorists about
pedestrian safety. AAA sponsors
a Pedestrian Protection Program
that gives awards to those cities
with few or no pedestrian deaths
and also offers education pro
grams about pedestrian safety,
Anderson said. One such award
was presented to Edenton, N.C;
the town has not had a pedes
trian fatality in 14 years.
The Walk Alert Program,
aided in development by Zegeer,
advocates the improvement of
traffic and pedestrian signals and
public education about pedes
Cousins advised that one
should be a "defensive pedes
trian as well as a defensive
driver. She urged pedestrians "to
be aware of things as you step
out into the street.
