Monday that the bills are invalid.

Police tighten security
at Smith Center concert

Chapel Hill police arrested 1 1

people for drug and alcohol posses

Charges included underage pos

possession of less than one ounce of
marijuana and possession of drug'

Monday's annual housing lot
tery drew mixed reactions from
its participants, but most students
agreed: the lottery system may be
fair, but they don't like it.
"I think the system's good, but
I just don't like it," said Derhonda
Thomas, a junior who was suc
cessful in Spencer's lottery. "It's
too stressful. I don't like stress."
Anne Presnell, area director for
Cobb and Joyner residence halls,
said this is the most difficult time
of the year for most residents.
Freshman Karin Heath agreed.
"It's scary," she said. "You know
it's coming, and all you can do

The 68th congress passed bills
after their successors had been
inaugurated because it needed to

she said. "Transition (to a new

Students should check out
alternatives, Presnell said. Stu

lottery can rent an apartment, live
in Granville Towers or place their
names on a waiting list so they
can be assigned rooms as space
becomes available, she said.
And students should also be
aware of the appeal process of the
University Housing department,

for Hinton James Residence Hall.

reasons are closed out of their

Boemell leads women past Buke, 83-67
By MIKE BERARDINO
DURHAM In a game that
featured enough solid contact to
pass for hockey and enough
knockdowns to pass for "Rocky,"
the elbow Duke's Sarah Sullivan
planted in Liza Donnell's face
early in the second half had the
biggest impact. .
The shot angered UNC's feisty
backup point guard, and Donnell
responded by scoring 13 of her
game-high 19 points in the final

"To be safe, I think the new
congress should pass the (68th

better transition procedures in the

The tradition of allowing the out
going congress to finish old business
is also responsible for the confusion,
Rob Friedman (Dist. 16), speaker of
the 69th congress, said Monday:
"It's been done every single year,"
he said. "The old congress finishes
any old business that it has pending.
We (the 68th congress) would have
gotten it done earlier if we thought
it was necessary."
But Friedman said following the
constitution is more important than

anxious moments, most students
agree that the system is fair: "As
much as I don't like it, this is
probably the fairest way to do it,"
But some students said the
Department of University Hous

for on-campus residents.
"I don't think it's fair at all,"
said Laura Morgan, a sophomore
who was closed out of Alderman
Residence Hall. "I think they
could do it far better. 1 don't see
how they can shake us up like
they do. As much as we pay them,
they could give us a little more
security in our housing."

so what,' " said the 5-5 Donnell
of Sullivan, who stands 6-3. "It
hurt me. I felt like punching her
in the face, but instead I said I
was going to take it right at her
and foul her out."
Donnell couldn't foul Sullivan
out, but she certainly hurt Duke.
With 4:29 left, Carolyn Sonzogni
hit a jumper to pull the Blue
Devils within four at 61-57. But
it was all UNC and Donnell from
there on in.
A crowd of 4,872 turned out
for the game, with all proceeds
going to the Ronald McDonald
houses of Durham and Chapel
Hill. That figure fell well short
of the target 6,800, the state
following tradition. "I would
imagine that everything we (the 68th
congress) did (Wednesday) is non

defined in the constitution, he said,

"It's not obvious what (the clause)
means, but it's obvious what it says,"

the new congress is in place, and 1

congress is done."

Christopher Fordham Monday, a
group of concerned students threa

any portion of their money continues
to be given to the Carolina Gay and

students, said the CGLA promotes
a lifestyle "which is to us as Chris

"For this reason," the letter
continued, "we are requesting an
immediate and full refund of this
year's Student Activities Fees." The
letter also said the signers will refuse
to pay student fees in the future until
they are assured their money won't
go to the CGLA.
Keith Poston, who signed the
letter, said the group which does
not yet have a name is taking its
stand on moral grounds. As born
again Christians, the signers object
to homosexuality, he said.
The CGLA, Poston said, is unlike
other student organizations because
"it smacks people's religion in the
face." The group also promotes
behavior which is illegal under North
Carolina's sodomy law, he said.
Fordham could not be reached for
comment Monday. Donald Boultbn,
vice chancellor and dean of student
affairs, said he would not comment
on the letter until he had spoken with
CGLA Co-Chairperson Greg
Johnson said Monday night that he
didn't see the letter as a threat.
"Fordham hasn't come out for or
against us," Johnson said. "This is
obviously not going to work."

Three times in the final min

Lucas said the definition of
"elected" is irrelevant.
"The most extreme definition of

Rick Spargo, another student who
signed the letter, said he has tried
to defund the CGLA for the past
three years with no success. He said
the letter is another way to make his
voice heard. "WeVe exhausted our
efforts with the Student Congress
now we're going to go above them."
Poston said he wants a "pretty
good justification" from UNC's
administration before he drops his
protest. When asked if the signers
would withdraw from the University
if administrators don't address the
issue to their satisfaction, he said,
"Well cross that bridge when we
