This year's Yack is an improvement over last year's effort, Yack Editor Kelly Sherrill said. "I'm really pleased with how the book turned out. I think it turned out better than in the past year."

She also said there was a good chance that alco hol was a contributing factor in the incident.

The '89 Yack has had fewer finan cial difficulties than the '88 edition, but could still use more Student Congress appropriated funds, she said. "We are just barely on budget, but we still don't get enough money from Student Con gress to completely cover the costs." In the spring, Yack officials were forced to raise the yearbook's price by It says members of Kappa Delta are to increase efforts to disband existing auxiliary (little sister) groups to men's fraternities and prohibit pledges and other members from joining or organ izing an auxiliary group. "I think it's good; hopefully it will set a precedent," Kappa Delta Presi dent Kristin Rosenkampff said of the resolution. 'The national organization is trying to prevent the harassment and degrada Firms chosen to plan parking garage By KATHERINE SNOW Staff Writer The architectural firms of Michael Hining AIA in Chapel Hill and Wilbur Smith Associates in Raleigh were se lected Tuesday by a town subcommit tee to help the town plan the proposed parking garage and public plaza on Rosemary Street. The project will be built on the cor ner of Rosemary and Henderson streets to replace the controversial Rosemary Square project that failed last April due to insufficient funds. "We were interested in their exper tise and thought these firms will do work that is creative and asthetically pleasing," said Chapel Hill Town Council member Julie Andresen. The architects and engineers are not at an actual planning stage with the town yet because exact costs have not been decided, Michael Hining said. But Death, or something.

Another possibility may be a collective increase in rent to pay for the damage. The billing method is still indefinite, she said. Scott Residence College Area Gov ernor Jene Cox added that area officials were trying to avoid collective billing, and better three dollars to stay on budget, she said. The Yack relies primarily on pho tography to represent the activities on the UNC campus, and this year's edi tion has a few changes, Sherrill said. The Yack staff has given the photos more captions, written more copy and added a news section, which includes international, national, state and local news from the past year. The Yack drew from local sources in putting the yearbook together, Sherrill said. "We had a lot of contributing little sister tion that some little sisters are experi encing. The national leaders say that all sororities are moving toward this goal, and hopefully it will become a prece dent for other (sororities)." Though all little sisters don't have bad experiences with fraternities, the policy had to be uniform throughout all Kappa Delta chapters, said member Blake Leggett, who attended the sum mer convention. "I think it is a positive thing. They've he has some ideas. "I want this parking facility to be open and airy, not a cave buried down in a hole. People still feel unsafe when they are underground no matter how many lights there are." Hining said he hoped to have a lot of green space and pedestrian space in the public plaza that would top the parking garage. There is also a possibility of putting retail space in the plaza. The firms estimate there will be 325 to 350 parking spaces in the garage, Hining said. Most of this parking will be by the hour for people going to Fran klin Street and surrounding businesses, but some spaces may be leased by the month.

Ramos was a professor in El Salva dor until he was forced to leave in 198 1 , after his life was threatened by the Salvadoran death squads. Threats were made on Ramos' life because of his association with the Farabundo Marti Front for National Liberation (FMLN), which has ties to the Communist Party. Since leaving El Salvador, Ramos has been in the United States giving speeches to raise awareness of prob lems in Central America and has al most completed a Ph.D. from Stanford University in Latin American Litera ture.

There will be many public forums and other meetings for Chapel Hill residents and business people, Hining said. "We intend to take these meetings to the citizens to find out what they want, not just tell them what we are going to do." '. Jimmy Wallace, the parking sub committee chairman, limited his inter view to two questions. He said he felt Hining's group gave a good indication that their proposal would be desirable.

Ramos spoke for about 30 minutes, advocating peace in Latin America, then answered questions for another 20 minutes. As Ramos arrived, he met about 20 protesters from the College Republi cans bearing signs with slogans against Ramos and FMLN. Sharon Sentelle, chairwoman of the College Republicans, said the protest ers wanted Ramos to know that the whole campus did not support his pres ence. "We have a right to voice our opinions and to protest the FMLN. We did not hold him (Ramos) up in any way. "We did not heckle," Sentelle con tinued.
