After watching her townhouse burn,

UNC Adds 3 South Asian Language Classes
By John Maberry
The University will join three area
campuses in expanding South Asian
studies by offering three new language
courses next fall.
UNC, Duke University, N.C. State
University and N.C. Central University
will add elementary Bengali, Persian
(Farsi) and Tamil to their curricula.
Carl Ernst, chairman of UNC’s
Department of Religious Studies, helped
make the classes available by gamering
a grant from the U.S. Department of
Education. The grant, known as the

Granville Towers has a basketball court, a
swimming pool, and two fitness centers.
As the house stood vacant Sunday
and Monday, it became easy access for
determined thieves, according to
Carrboro police reports.
The estimated $40,000 worth of dam
age to the house from the fire included
more than $6,000 of material goods that
had been stolen. Possessions ranging
from a U.S. Naval ring to 10 pounds of
chicken tenders were taken.
Some of the items stolen, including a
graduation ring and a wooden jewelry
box, held great sentimental value, said
Ethal Carver, Bynum’s mother. “She is a

Local native speakers who do not

will instruct the two-semester classes.
“We are not requiring a Ph.D., but
they have been going through a series of
sophisticated workshops,” Ernst said.
Ernst stressed the importance of
expanding UNC’s South Asian studies
program to include the new languages
due to local racial demographics.
“You can look at the high proportion
of South Asian people in the Triangle
area as reason to add these courses,” he

better than expected.”
The firefighters were dispatched to
Bynum’s home Saturday morning, locat

“We received a call at 8:52 a.m. and
immediately responded, arriving at the
site at 8:56 a.m.” Carrboro Fire Marshal
Stan Foushee said. “It began in the mas

playing with matches,” he said.
Fire Chief Rodney Murray said the

Ernst pointed out the importance of
communication in international trade
relations with South Asia. “President

“I understand the language but never
had a chance to have formal, structured
education on it,” junior Alex Mehfar
