‘Freak’ Didn’t Require ID; Ad Said It Would
BY LILLIE CRATON
After the organizers ofSaturday night’s Greek Freak
advertised that a four-year college identification would
be required for admission, the general public was
admitted to the step show and after-party in Carmichael
Auditorium, which drew a crowd of 3,000.
Director of Greek Affairs Ron Binder said he did
not know who had decided to admit the public or when
the decision was made. Binder referred questions to
Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc., the fraternity which sponsored
the event. Fraternity leaders did not return calls Tues
day and have previously declined to speak with the
The fraternity did not violate any policy by opening
the event to the public, said Student Union Director
Donald Luse. The party did not fall under the Great
Hall Late Night Party Policy, which required guests to
have a student identification to enter, he said.
BCC Celebrates Legacy
Of Sonja Haynes Stone
BY MARISA FERGUSON
Students, faculty and friends of Sonja
Haynes Stone met Tuesday to remember
and renew her legendary vision of racial
Stone served as director of curriculum
in Afro-American Studies at the Univer
sity from 1974 to 1979. She then worked as
an associate professor in the field until her
death in 1991. The Black Cultural Center is
named after her.
Stone was also a leader in several cam
pus organizations during her time at UNC,
including the BCC Planning Committee,
the Campus Y Advisory Board and the
Black Student Movement.
The Campus Y organized Tuesday’s
event to celebrate and promote Stone’s
campus activism, said Planning Commit
tee member Katie Rossini.
“Dr. Stone had such a diverse and broad
based impact on this campus,” Rossini
said. “We’re hereto pay tribute and reflect,
and decide where to go from here.”

Case Makes It
To Honor Court
Two students charged with impeding
another student's free speech in connec
tion with the theft of the Carolina Review
faced an evening of hearings in the Under
graduate Student Court on Tuesday.
The Review’s publisher Charlton Allen
and editor Ashley Gamer confirmed they
had been called to testify Tuesday in Honor
Court. The night before student elections
Feb. 13, about 1,500 copies of the Review
were taken from classrooms. They were
deposited in the Student Attorney General’s
Office on election night.
Three witnesses, who asked not to be
identified, said they had been called to
testify in the Honor Court’s hearing of the
Review case in Steele building.
Two members of Student Body Presi
dent Aaron Nelson’s fraternity, Rich Fre
mont and Reza Ardalan, were seen enter
ing Steele Building at 6 p.m. Tuesday

was in possession of the Reviews before
they were returned.

In previous years the after-party portion of the
annual Greek Freak has been held in the Great Hall,
and therefore college identifications were required for
admission, Binder said.
The issue of how to deal with non-students at late
night parties in University venues is an old one. In the
past year, non-students have been responsible for at
least three out of five reported incidents of violence
outside of parties held by black Greek organizations in
the Great Hall. None of the incidents involving non
students took place inside a party in the Great Hall,
where outsiders are not admitted.
Violence has almost always occurred in parking lots
and along streets near the Union, where crowds con
gregated because people were turned away from the
party when it reached its capacity or after the party was
But Saturday’s party did not reach its capacity, said

Stone’s campus presence extended into
the classroom setting as well, said Harold
Woodard of the Office of Student
Counseling.“ Dr. Stone had a knack for
making every student feel as though they
said something even though in many cases
they had not,” he said. “She used innova
tion and encouragement in always getting
across an important lesson.”
Stone began her career as a social worker
after graduating from Sarah Lawrence
College. She later received a master’s de
gree in social work from Atlanta Univer
sity and a doctorate in education from
Stone played an instrumental role in the
expansion of the department of Afro-
American Studies, which was formed just
before her arrival at UNC.
Stone also organized the Southeastern
Black Press Institute and the OIC Archival
Project in Philadelphia.
Heather Lynch, 1991 Campus Y presi
dent, said she thought Stone’s presence
was vital to the movement to create the
BCC.“She helped us to give words to the
conviction and passions that drove us.”

Women Making Advances in Suite C
■ Three of the four core
student government positions
are now occupied by females.
BY MAGGIE SCHLEICH
The composition of the new student
government administration brings women
to the forefront, with females occupying
three out of the four core positions.
But student leaders think women need
to increase their involvement in campus
politics. And they wonder why women do
not run for positions. And why UNC has
had only one female student body presi
The status of women in the student
government is often attributed to tradition.
“I think it’s an intimidating organiza

male domination,” former Student Body
Vice President Amy Swan said.
“With regard to the office of SBP, I
think it’s a role modeling issue, a historical
issue,” Swan said. “Who have we seen as
president? Men. We don’t have a vision of
what it would be like if we had a woman.

“If a woman were to be put into office of
SBP, it would require a change in the
mentality we’ve been susceptible to for
most of our lives.”
“I am only one woman on this campus,
but I can speculate (women do not run for
student body president) because it is very
time-consuming, and very demanding.”
Support networks for women are also a
factor when females ran for certain posi

■ Officials said problems
with school security might
have led to the assault.
BY LUTHER CALDWELL
The layout of Chapel Hill High School
and its overcrowding might have contrib
uted to the alleged sexual assault of a 15-
year-old female student that occurred two
weeks ago, said Kim Hoke, spokeswoman
for Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
“Unless we had surveillance cameras it
would be very hard to cover the entire
campus,” Hoke said.
The layout of the school’s cultural arts
building, where the assault allegedly oc
curred, might have facilitated the alleged
incident, Hoke said.
Hoke said the assault occurred near a
stairway in the building. The stairway con
nects the building’s lower floor with an
upstairs lobby area.
This location was in a secluded area of
the building, Hoke said, whose privacy
was conducive to such an assault, she said.
Hoke said students were not usually in
that area and that no classrooms or teach
ers were nearby.
School board member Mary Bushnell
said she believed the area should be more
heavily patrolled and that more surveil
lance of the campus might be done.
“I think with some additional measures
taken, we can get a better handle on this
(situation),” Bushnell said. She said the
schools and the school board should ad
dress the seclusion of the campus area
where the incident occurred.
Board member Mark Royster said over
crowding also could have been a contribut
ing factor to the assault.
“I think the fact that so many students
are there and the vastness of the campus
can lead to incidents such as these, ” Royster
Hoke said: “There are more students
than the school can actually serve.” She
