With the Christmas season drawing
near, local store managers are pre
paring for a shopping season as strong
as in past years.
Thanksgiving weekend, usually a
busy time for holiday sales, appears to
have been successful this year despite
reports of a national recession and
unseasonably warm weather, local
Sam Grist, University Mall man
ager, said stores were reporting sales
ahead of or comparable to last year's
"So far, traffic has been good,"
Grist said. "It started slow but built
into a good weekend."

If Delta Zeta members desire better
lighting in the area once they occupy the
house, Bass said the sorority would not
hesitate to bring the matter to the town.
"I have not heard or noticed any
problems with the amount of lighting in
the area," Bass said. "Of course, I've
only been there in the daytime and not at

'There's a chance, certainly, that it (the
recount) will go in my favor."
Lake said he's seen past recounts
shift the tally by as many as 1 ,500 votes

know what can happen."
The Supreme Court race is among
several that were the subject of recounts

state elections director.
Brock said the results might not reach

Brock said. "They mail them."

Students will have the opportunity to
learn more about attitudes and legal

college campuses at a forum in Howell
Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. today.
Women in Law, an organization at
the law school, is sponsoring the forum,

Officials unsure of education solutions
From Associated Press reports
RALEIGH State leaders agree
that North Carolina has problems in
its educational system, but they don't
see eye-to-eye on how to correct them.
A recent meeting on the Task Force
on Excellence in Secondary Education
typified the divergence between the
two sides. One group contended that
the Scholastic Aptitude Test was an
indictment of the state's difficulties,
while the other group tried to put edu
cation in its best light.
Richardson Preyer, the chairman
of the task force, urged moderation.
"We don't want to throw the baby out
with the bath water."
Rep. Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe,
urged the panel not to turn its back on
college-trained and certified teachers
just because of past results.
"If the training isn't good, we need
to fix it," he said.

rapes and sexual assaults were reported
in Chapel Hill in 1989. But the rape
crisis center was approached by 240
people who had experienced a sexual
assault or rape, she said."Close to 56
percentpf the time the victim is going to
be assaulted by someone he or she
knows," Anderson-Thompkins said.
Kathleen Benzaquin, associate dean
of students, said UNC seemed to be
falling in line with national campus
trends regarding rape. One in four col
lege women will be victims of rape or
attempted rape, and 90 percent of these
will be attacked by someone they know,
Benzaquin said. Last year, 16 rapes
were reported to the Office of Student

That history, however, had its roots
in an agrarian society whose labor
force later moved into textile mills
and furniture factories.
"In most cases, an education that
encompassed minimal basic skills, as
identified in the state's graduation
requirement test, was sufficient," the
draft report stated.
The report noted that North Caro
lina universities were expected to
"compensate for the educational in
adequacies of elementary and sec
ondary schools" for those few st udents
who continued their educations.
The report was often critical of
processes at the very foundation of
the state's educational system. For
example, it said students "learn in
different ways and at different rates.
Yet they are usually taught as if they

Jackson, president of Chowan College
