Many students in Scott Residence
College are upset about the proposed
site of the new General Alumni
Center on Stadium Drive, according
to SRC President Brian Sipe.
The area, affectionately called the
"Big Woods" by area residents, was
approved by the Board of Trustees
in September as the construction site
for the center.
Sipe said students enjoy the natural
beauty there and use the land for
recreational purposes. "We don't

A meeting of the Black Greek
Council (BGC) earlier this week
produced four proposals in an
attempt to increase security for
parties held in the Student Union.
Student Union Director Archie
Copeland said Monday he would like
the Great Hall to remain open for
the social activities of University
students and their guests.
The meeting and proposals were
spurred by a fraternity party held in
the Great Hall on Sept. 26, which
resulted in four fights, an arrest for
breaking into a vending machine and
the robbery of a student's wallet and

The streets of Chapel Hill will come
alive this afternoon as the annual
homecoming parade winds its way
through UNC's campus.
Organizers said Thursday that this
year's parade is not only the largest
ever, but should also prove to be the
most exciting one for spectators.
"It's going to be one of the most
unusual and surprising parades this
school has ever had," said Robert
Temple, vice president of the Caro
lina Athletic Association (CAA),
which is sponsoring the parade. "I'd
say this is the start of a new tradition

Copeland said Thursday that he
has heard of the BGC's proposals, but
has not met formally with BGC
members to discuss them.
In general, Copeland said, he has
no problems with the proposals.
However, he would like to meet with
BGC members to clarify the proposal
to check area college identification

The parade kicks off at 3 p.m.,
complete with a new route which
includes areas around South Campus
and Scott Residence College.
Carol Geer, president of the CAA,
said this year's parade is the largest
and most diverse ever, with more than
50 groups participating.
"WeVe made an effort to get a
wider variety of groups," Geer said.
"It's going to be a lot of fun for a
lot of people because of the large
number. Last year was really good,
so expect this to be great."

members) to make sure we both
understand the proposals," he said.
Copeland also said he is consid

the only campus organization that
uses the facility.
"They (the black fraternities) are
heavy users of the space," he said.
"I want to make sure we accomplish
what the BGC wants and what other
campus organizations want."

that student parking spaces in the

Dale McKinley debates apartheid issue with College Republicans

A memo outlining two incidents of
racial harassment of a black student
in UNC's School of Business Admin
istration was distributed Thursday to
faculty members and all MBA
The incidents involve racial slurs
written this spring on two class
assignments and slipped into the mail
file of a black woman who is now
a second-year MBA student.
Students and school officials said
they decided to make the incidents
public to find out who wrote the racial
comments and to raise awareness of
racism on campus.
Both incidents involve copies of
briefs, which are recommendations
that students write after being given
the background of specific business
problems. Some briefs are written
individually, and some are written by
The memo, written by Lynne
Gerber, executive director of the
MBA program, said:
In February, a rough draft of a

The study group members deleted
the comment from their brief, but
Vinson found a copy of the rough

the comment still written on it.
All members of the group said they
do not know who put the rough draft

concerns over parking could not be

"At this point, it's premature to
speculate on what concerns there
are," he said. "Until we've got a plan
