Analysts divided after presidential debate

Following the final presidential
debate Thursday, many experts say
time is running out for Democrat
Michael Dukakis' campaign.

election is over," said Shanto Iyengar,

California at Los Angeles. Barring a

"Most people believe that frater

In the period between February
1987 and January 1988, fraternities
accounted for only 6 percent of the
total noise violations reported to the
police, in comparison to complaints
from apartment complexes, which
totaled 55 percent.
