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. obrary to exteimdl 24-hoioir exam By JAMES BURROUGHS Assistant University Editor 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 Wednesday:-" " ' ' 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 last year, said David Taylor, under 'y , ' i v"'y' , y , j(s, "yht f,-, ' y :yy m yy A ,Jk. x f '"'i ;v -,f-4 A i t Tree trouble McRae Willis, a freshman from Winston-Salem, helps her Little Buddy, Greg French, out of a One of the Jl Someone who had talked with the woman reported the assault to the STOW area office, Aselin said.

Frederick Schroeder, dean of students, said he was aware of the incident, but that no more informa tion was available. 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," Schroeder said. See ATTACK page 2 graduate librarian. This semester's study area will serve as a trial period to determine whether students would support the idea, Rierson said. "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.

"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."

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.
