• Levi's has started using a personal computer to find the
perfect fit of blue jeans for the female customer. Sales cleiits at
a Levi's store can now use a computer to enter in a customer's
description, which in turn points out a blue print of the desired
jeans. The customized jeans cost, on the average, about $10
more than the mass-produced pairs.
• IBM and Apple have united on a new computer standard.
Monday they met to unveil the new common personal com
puter standard for the Power-PC microprocessor.
• David Bruck, Susan Smith's attorney in the murder case of
her two sons Michael and Alex, said Monday that he may use an
insanity defense for the mother. Smith recently told police she
was suicidal the night she rolled her car into the lake.
• A woman in Wadesboro was killed Saturday trying to save
her 3-year-old son who stepped in front of a moving car. Melinda
Canter, 19, raced back into the street to grab Bradley. The car
struck them both. Bradley was listed in critical condition at
Carolina's Medical Center on Monday.
• Believe it or not, a school in Smithfield actually offers
classes for men and women aspiring to be Santa Claus. For $10
each, six people enrolled in Roberts' Santa Training School.
Richard Roberts, the school's instructor, has appeared in many
malls and flea markets throughout North Carolina.
• Truckers going through Craven County Monday got then-
fuel tanks checked for illegal disel fuel at a rest stop. The IRS said
that on the average, millions of dollars are lost every year
because of truckers who fill up their tanks with tmtaxed fuel.
• Security would like to congratulate all those who
participated in Comhuskin' 1994. We would also like
to thank all of you who cooperated with security in
checking coolers and bookhags. There were no
problems, and the night went smoothly.
• ATTENTION COMMUTERS! There has been a problem
with commuters parking in the faculty parking spaces
and on the grass outside the buildings. There is plenty
of parking in the grassy overflow commuter lot behind
the art building. The lot is usually only half full;
therefore, students have no excuse for not parking
there. Any student who does not park in her
designated area will be ticketed, booted or towed.
