Delta Phi Alpha's Oktoberfest
German cultural event here tonight
Continued from page 1
By AMY COLGAN
Dressed in lederhosen and dirndl, a select group of people will be polkaing. eating
bratwurst and otherwise celebrating in true German tradition Friday night. Although it
sounds like the makings of a theme mixer, Delta Phi Alpha (DPA) is actually sponsoring
"Oktoberfest," a German cultural event.
"A taste of the old country" is the atmosphere that the DPA. the German honorary
organization will be trying to bring to the Community Church between 8 and 1 2 midnight.
According to German teaching assistant David Tinsley, secretary of DPA, the annual
Oktoberfest is one of the few campuswide German events.
It draws together those with German ties: German department faculty members, graduate
students, local German natives and high school and college students studying the language

Based on the old Bavarian festival, the celebration includes a liveGerman band, traditional
drinking and dancing songs, real bratwurst. pretzels and pseudo-German beer.
Adding to the "old country" atmosphere, many of the T.A.s will don traditional German
costumes. T.A. Gale Wilson, said that it is one of the few opportunities she gets to wear her
dirndl a German apron-dress. Lederhosen. or knickers, are the leather shorts worn by
some of the men.
At past Oktoberfests, frequent cries of "Ein, Zwei, G'suffa" have dominated the carousing.
Another tradition, this popular phrase cues all drinkers within earshot to down a mugful of
beer. Keith Sellers, a German student who attended last year, said that it is often a T.A. or
faculty member who leads the call.
"At first, many students are shy and stand aside watching us singing and dancing," said
Tinsley."but as the night progresses, they usually jump right in." Me said that he and plenty of
other people are willing to teach the polka and wait to any would-be participants.
Although anyone is welcome, only those interested in German culture are encouraged to
attend, according to T.A. Ron Pirog. also a member ol DPA. "Oktoberfest is not tor
anybody who just wants a beer blast," he said.
"It is not a fund-raising event, but a celebration, Horthis reason, there are no ticket sales at
the door." Tickets can be bought from the German T.A.s until noon today.
After having worked for a month plotting, planning and pushing tickets to their students,
the German T.A.s will have an opportunity to unwind tonight. Many of their students are
unaware of what "Oktoberfest" holds. And who knows? All that can be promised is in the
sign posted in Dey Hall, reading: "People are getting excited about Oktoberfest. $2.50covers
all the beer you can saufen and all the pretels you can fressen."

Fairgoers will experience the familiar
bright lights, rides, shows and games of the
James E. Strates Show while watching the
daring exploits of Jack Kochman's Hell
Drivers from the grandstand.
With displays ranging from hand-crafted
wares to shows of North Carolina's finest
farm animals, and the inevitable hot dogs
and cotton candy, the State Fair draws a
larger crowd than any other event in the
state. The fun starts when the gates open at 9
a.m. every day except Sunday, when they
open at I p.m.
Admission is $2 daily. I hose 1 2 and under
and 65 and older are admitted free.
But Sarah and Adelaide somehow heard
of the plan and traveled to Philadelphia.
They found the twins hours before the
scheduled operation and pleaded with them
to come back to North Carolina. Chang and
Eng protested but were finally convinced.
David Yates married the four, Chang to
Adelaide and Eng to Sarah, on April 13,
The Bunkers kept their private lives very
secret. There are no hints as to how they ran
their households or as to their conjugal
relations. But the household is described as a
happy one. Ten months after the marriage,
Sarah and Eng had a daughter. Six days
later, Adelaide and Chang had a daughter
Three years later, the Bunkers left Traphill
and moved into the next county, White
Plains, just outside of Mount Airy.
They bought some rich bottomland on
Stewards' Creek. U.S. 601 cuts across this
land today just after the unsuspecting
motorist leaves the Mount Airy city limits.
The land is known today as Hollyview
Farms. Kester Sink lives in the twins' former
home, a white frame house similar to the one
in Traphill. Sink's wife was a granddaughter
The twins moved into this house but
quickly built another one across the creek
three miles away.
The families were too big to stay in one
house and separating them was the only
practical solution. Chang and Eng decided
to spend three days at a time in each house.
While in one man's house, that man was
kind. It was an arrangement they strictly
adhered to for 30 years.
Cross still has a cradle that the twins made.
The twins became a respected part of the
White Plains community as they had been in
Traphill. They helped to build two churches
in White Plains and a schoolhouse,
according to Mrs. Cross. They farmed 1,000
acres, which kept them busy.

But the Civil War hurt the Bunkers very
much. They lost their slaves and much of
their money. In an effort to earn money for
their growing families, the twins left to tour
once again in 1869.
By this time, they were old men with little
to offer. They did not do well but managed to
bring home money.
By this time, their health was beginning to
fail. Chang began to drink heavily and their
life began to become very hard for them.
In 1871, Chang suffered a stroke and
became partially paralyzed. Eng found
himself having to constantly support his
Eng became obsessed with the possibility
of his brother's death. It was the final, great
fear of the twins' life together. They felt the
band was a life channel between them,
though doctors had no reason to suspect one
could not live without the other.
Eng sometimes became frantic over his
brother's drinking and his declining health.
Eng begged his brother to stop the drinking
but to no avail. Eng sought someone to
separate them, but no doctor would dare to
On Monday, Jan. 12, 1874, Chang had
developed severe bronchitis and pains in his
chest. As Chang began to recover, it came
time to move to Eng's house. It was cold and
frost was on the ground. Eng and Adelaide
begged Chang to stay on, but Chang would
not break their agreement and insisted on
moving. By the time they arrived at Eng's
house, Chang's cough had worsened.
On Friday, the twins went to bed. But they
were restless. Chang said he could not breath
when he lay down. A weary Eng sat up with
Chang for a while and made a fire. Eng later
insisted that the two go to bed, and they did.
Sometime during the night Eng woke up.
He did not hear Chang breathe. He called to
his son who came and saw that Chang was
"Then I am going too," Eng is believed to
have said. For a moment Eng was silent.
Then he was gripped with hysteria. He broke
out in a cold sweat and began to shake. "My
last hour is come," he said.
A doctor was sent for. Dr. Hollingsworth
in Mount Airy had agreed previously to
separate the twins as soon as one died.
In the meantime, Eng supposedly calmed
down. But his strength began to ebb, and he
slipped into a coma. His last words
supposedly were "May God have mercy on
For some reason, Dr. Hollingsworth
arrived two hours after Chang was found
dead. When the doctor arrived, Eng had
A team of Philadelphia surgeons sought to
perform an autopsy. After much effort, they
secured permission to do a limited one.
Chang probably died from a cerebral clot.
They examined the band but could not come
to a definite conclusion as to the band's
function, if it had one. The surgeons found
two separate body systems, with no common
organ between the two. However, they did
not find any urine in Chang. Somehow, it
had flowed into Eng.
N o conclusion was reached on the cause of
Eng's death. They felt that Eng probably
died of fright,
