College Students
Protect Your
Personal Possessions
Registering for classes, buying books
and moving away from home are typical
worries for college students. Today,
students must also add theft to their list of
worries. Theft is the number one crime
on college campuses, according to the
Insurance Information Institute (III).
If you fall victim to burglary, having
adequate insurance can lessen the blow.
For students who live in dorms, their
personal possessions are insured under
their parents homeowners policy. New
coeds should consult their parent’s
insurance agent to guarantee that
expensive computers, televisions and
stereos are fully covered.
Upperclassmen who move off
campus need to purchase a renters
insurance policy to cover their
belongings.
The 1.1.1., offers the following
advice to guard against theft on college
campuses:
* Always lock your doors.
* Leave expensive jewelry at home.
*Engrave electronic items.
* Don't leave personal items
attended on campus.

Huntley Misses Breaking 1989 All-Time
College Rusher’s Record
BY WSSU SPORTS STAFF
Although the Winston-
Salem State Rams defeated the
Virginia State Trojans 20 -14,
Richard Huntley fell 35 yards
short of becoming college
football's all-time leading
rusher on November IL
Huntley finished the gan>e
with 175 yards (he needed 210
yards) on 37 carries and
scored two touchdowns,
helping the Rams defeat
Virginia State, the CIAA
champions.
Many Rams fans came to
the game, which was played
during steady rain,
anticipating seeing history
being made.
"I knew Huntley was
going to set a new record,"
Mid Luther Mason. "I came
to the game in the last quarter
because I just knew WSSU
and Winston-Salem were
going to be getting plenty of
press. A North Carolina
hisuxically black college was
going to make the "big time' in
the sports world."
During the third and
fourth quarters of the game, it
was quite obvious to the rain
soaked fans that braved the
inclement weather that history
may not be made that day.
Contrary to popular
belief, history was made.
Huntley gained 218'yards, but
he lost 43 yards, including 25
yards on two plays when he
played the role of the team's
punter. There were two bad
snaps and he had to chase the
ball.
"They played as if they
didn't want him to break the
record. The score should have
been 40 - 0 and he should
have broken the record," said
8-year-old Ashante' Dunn,
who was attending the game
with her father and uncle.
