"None of the young people were

an opportunity to stay. All we're

RHA has opposed the housing
department's guaranteed sophomore
housing proposal for the past two
years. The proposal was just pres
ented for the third time.
Under RHA's new proposal, all
students would have to participate in
the housing lottery, while under the
housing department's proposal,
sophomores would be exempt.
RHA leaders developed the prop

season-ending loss to Duke. At that
time, the coaches discussed each team
member's current position and future
When Brown returned from a
week-long recruiting trip last Thurs
day, the players began informing him
of their decisions to leave.
Starting safety Dan Vooletich and
sophomore receiver Freddy Renken
were among the dozen players who
chose to transfer, graduate or end
their football careers.
Vooletich led a group of seven
potential fifth-year seniors who opted
to pass up their final season of
eligibility in order to graduate next
spring. Brown said the decisions did
not reflect poorly on the program.

Brown also said the players did not

The Yackety Yack, UNC's year
book, is in financial difficulty, and
staff members must sell 3,500 copies
of the yearbook to break even, Editor
Susana Dancy said Tuesday.
Staff members blamed a cut in
Student Congress funding for the
1988-89 school year, and student
apathy for the Yack's financial
"This is the Yackety Yack's 99th
year," Dancy said. "It would be tragic
for the students to lose their yearbook
due to apathy."
Last April, the Student Congress
Finance Committee allotted the Yack
$9,340, less than half than the $19,740
request, Dancy said.
This was about a $9,000 cut from
the amount allotted for the previous

year. In April 1987, The Yack
requested $19,340 and was allotted
$18,240 by the congress.
The production of this year's
yearbook will cost $121,840, she said.
To make up the difference, the
Yack must sell 3,500 copies of the
yearbook. The staff sold 3,000 copies
of the 1986-87 edition, and 2,000
copies of the 1987-88 edition.
The staff has sold only 150 year
books for 1988-89 so far, but experts
sales to increase in the spring.
During the budget process last
spring, the Yack requested almost
$20,000. But a request of that size
is a large part of the congress budget
and would quickly drain its funds,
said Finance Committee member
Brock Dickinson (Dist. 13).
Congress felt the cut was justified
because of the staffs past failure to
n Latex condoms offer more pro
tection than animal skin condoms by
better blocking the AIDS virus.
n A spermicide, used with a latex
condom, offers double protection by
killing sperm and disease organisms.
o The spermicide is nonoxynol-9,
the only one approved by the Food
and Drug Administration.
Animal skin condoms, or natural
membrane condoms, have been
found in some studies to leak disease
spreading organisms through minute
pores, while latex condoms have been
shown to block passage of the AIDS
virus, as well as herpes and gonor
rhea, according to the New England
Journal of Mecicine.
The American Journal of Nursing
reports that latex condoms can also
prevent the transmission of chlamy
dia, genital warts and hepatitis B.
And experiments by the national
Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
confirm that latex . condoms offer
greater protection against disease
than animal skin condoms.
The FDA agrees. It regulates all
condom varieties and only allows
latex condom manufacturers to
advertise their product as protection
against sexually transmitted diseases.
Yet 14 of the 45 pharmacists
questioned had no knowledge about
the superiority of latex condoms.
"There's no difference between the
skin and the latex condoms," said one

congress for not meeting its deadlines,
"Tardiness should have nothing to

Although past Yack staffs may
