Two men assaulted a woman
walking alone near Joyner Residence
Hall on March 6, according to
officials, and police are investigating
The woman was able to escape
after the men attacked her, said Clare
Aselin, Cobb Joyner assistant area
director. The attack was serious
enough for the victim to go to a
hospital, said Kathleen Benzaquin,
associate dean of student affairs.
The two attackers were white,
college-age males, Benzaquin said.
The report was filed 10 to 12 hours
after the attack.
Police reports indicate the assault
occurred at 3:35 a.m.
The incident probably occurred
between Joyner Residence Hall and
the tennis courts, Aselin said. The
lighting there is poor after the court
lights are turned off, and there are
several trees and bushes.

The proposed 24-hour study area
will become a reality on April 23,
when the Undergraduate Library will
begin an around-the-clock trial
period to be in effect for most days
until the end of exams, officials said

The decision to create the study
area follows almost eight months of
work by student government officials
and the Department of Student
Affairs, said Sandy Rierson, chairwo
man of the student government
academic affairs committee.
The Undergraduate Library usu
ally remains open for 24 hours during
the exam period, but the idea of
expanding that schedule to the days
before exam week was brought up

incident, but that no more informa

A report was made earlier this year
of a man jumping from behind a bush
in the Cobb Joyner area and follow
ing a woman inside through a side
door of Joyner, Aselin said.
The problem of lighting is being
addressed, and the bushes have been
trimmed to prevent people from
hiding in them, Aselin said.
"I don't think it (the attack) had
anything to do with poor lighting,"

This semester's study area will serve
as a trial period to determine whether
students would support the idea,
"What we're trying to see is if this
is something the students will really
use and if it's something they really
need", ""she said.
The goal now is to keep the 24
hour study area open only during the
week before exams and during
exams, Rierson said, but if students
respond positively, the days of
operation may be expanded.
In addition to library facilities, the
Student Union lounge and Union
Station may remain open for students
to use all night, Rierson said.

regular time on the Friday and

The lack of student use during the
library's 24-hour exam week schedule
has the library staff doubtful about
the new study area, but the staff is
willing to work for its success, he said.
"We're enthusiastic if the students
really need it, but we're still a little
skeptical," Taylor said. "We're really
wondering if this is more of a great
idea than it is an actual need."

Dupree, a distinguished authority
on Afghanistan and on Middle East
anthropology, had been a visiting
professor at UNC since 1987.
He had been teaching a course
called The Modern Middle East at
UNC this spring , before he was
hospitalized for cancer several weeks
ago. The cancer had spread from his
brain to his lungs and other areas.
Dupree studied Asian archaeology
and ethnology to earn his bachelor
of arts, master's and doctorate
degrees at Harvard University.

Matthew Costello, a General Col
lege adviser, said students should
come to their advisers with a general
idea of what they want to take. "Our
major job is to make sure they get
all their perspectives done on time."
Students ought to collect as much
information as possible before choos
ing their courses, said Bobbi Owen,
assistant dean of the General College.
"Students should take courses they
are interested in," she said. "I don't
think you should sign up for a course

"It is very difficult to detect LSD
in a person's body," he said. "All tests
have thresholds, which means that
certain amounts of a drug may be
so small it may be below detection."

saying they saw McMichael drink
alcohol and take drugs earlier in the

for more than 20 years and made
many trips back to the country from
the United States.
His work in Afghanistan went
beyond his observational and
research duties as an anthropologist.
He worked to help the Afghan
resistance against the Soviet invasion
and was a vocal supporter of selling
arms to the resisters.
In a 1987 article in the Durham
Morning Herald, Dupree said the
Soviets were fighting a war they knew
could not be won if the United States
continued to sell arms to Afghan
rebels. He said the Soviets were

According to McMichael's friends,
the young man was not a drug user
and did not drink alcohol often.
"The results of the LSD test do
not surprise me," Chris Crute, a
