recommended Wednesday that the
housing department should not
guarantee spaces in residence halls to
Instead, the department will plan
and implement a series of programs
to educate students about the lottery
system and the options available to

Wayne Kuncl, director of Univer

any policy changes, he would review
the board's proposal with his staff and
with Donald Boulton, vice chancellor
and dean of student affairs.

A University proposal requesting
a change in the disclaimer on the back
of Ticketron tickets has been turned
over to the company's attorneys,
Ticketron officials said Wednesday.
Steve Camp, director of the Smith
Center, proposed the change after
questions were raised about the
constitutionality of a phrase on the
back of some Smith Center tickets.
He proposed that the wording of
the disclaimer, which states that
ticket-holders are admitted on the
condition that they consent to a
"reasonable search for alcohol, drugs
or weapons," be changed to "a
reasonable, legal search."

Final exams: how to keep your sanity
By LYNNE McCLINTOCK
With the pressures of final exams
setting in, University officials and
campus groups are offering services
and advice to help students cope
with the stress of exams.
Al Calarco, associate director of
University Housing, said students
should not change their schedules
drastically during exam period.
"Researchers say if you're not a
late night person, it does you little
good to study late," he said,
"because you won't be able to
comprehend, or youH comprehend
At exam time, he said "people
tend to get careless they forget
their keys, walk back from the
library alone and don't eat well."
He said roommate problems are
intensified because students are
more restless, tired and cranky. "It
is important to realize that at this
time of year, fuses are short."
Beth Griffin, a mother and UNC
student, said, "I usually try to stop
if I feel myself getting stressed and
take a walk or do something dif
ferent for a while."
Sophomore Raj Wadehra said he
deals with tension by relaxing his
body, starting with his big toe and

what students can do if their name
isn't called," Kuncl said. "We should
have some active oral presentation at
the floor or hall level."
Kuncl said the housing staff would
use information from previous lotter
ies to inform students about the
waiting list system.
"We should address the anxiety of
rising sophomores, and tell them
they'll probably get back in, but
maybe not in the dorm they want,"
Kuncl said. "We need to give students
more information in a different

"Since we sell tickets for events all
over the country, we have to make
sure that this proposal doesn't violate
any statute laws," Zalewski said. "Our
attorneys are trying to find out what
other people across the country think
Zalewski said that even if the
proposal is not approved on the
national level, the appropriate
changes would be made to the
disclaimers on tickets sent to the
"We're not here to decide if some
thing is constitutional or not,"
Zalewski said. "But, if we have to
change one or two words in the
disclaimer to satisfy our clients, then
well do it."
This is the first time that the
disclaimer has ever been questioned,
"This is all kind of ironic since we
put the present disclaimer on at the
Crum's replacement. Conducting that
search will be a seven-man committee
chaired by Swofford. The committee
met for the first time Wednesday.
Swofford had a specific vision of
the qualities for which he thought the
committee would be looking.
"We want to find someone that we
know is going to be honest, that we
won't have to worry about," he said,
"someone who can operate within the
appropriate academic parameters of

it gets out my angers and frustra

Barry Cobb, governor of Hinton
James, said the resident assistants
have organized programs to teach
relaxation methods, massage tech

Cobb said hall senators are
planning study breaks with food
and movies during exams.
Danny Arnold, president of Tau
Epsilon Phi fraternity, said he hasn't
noticed many changes in his frater
nity brothers during exams. He did,
however, mention one thing.
"Some of the brothers don't shave
during final exams," he said.
Some students change other
habits during exams. Amy Grissom,
president of Kappa Kappa Gamma
sorority, said members of her
sorority tend to eat much more
during the exam period.
Students can find places to study
and to relieve the tensions of exam
period in the campus ministries.
Pastor Larry Hartsell of Trinity
Lutheran Church said students need
a quiet place to study, a place to
let off steam, and a source of bodily
and spiritual nourishment.

takes place would be especially

Richard Beatty, vice president of
Ticketron marketing, said that
although he thinks the proposal raises
a valid question; he's not sure of the
definition of a "legal search."
"The word 'legal' is the only part
of the proposal that I'm not sure
about," Beatty said. "WeVe asked the
attorneys to find out exactly what a
legal search is."
According to legal experts, a search
is legal when a person consents to
be searched, when police officers have
a search warrant or when officers see
a person holding an illegal substance
in plain view.
Although Beatty admitted the

Swofford, though, was unwilling to
criticize his former colleague.
The athletic director did say,
however, that if the University were
given another chance, it would not
have signed Crum to a contract as
long as the 10-year pact made in 1981.
"There are two sides to that
arrangement," he said. "In theory it
sounds good, but in other ways it can
become difficult. It can not be in the
coach's best interest."
Congress passes bill
to educate students
about AIDS threat
By JUSTIN McGUIRE
Student Congress passed a bill
Wednesday in an effort to alert the
University community to the facts
and common misconceptions about

appropriated $2,500 to Carolina
Beach Blast, an all-campus party to
be held on Ehringhaus Field in April.
The AIDS bill states that since
college students are in a more sexually
active age group than the general
population, it is important to educate
students and dispel myths about the
spreading of the disease.
As examples of the stereotyping
and trivializing of the disease, the bill
cites "Stop AIDS" T-shirts worn by
some students and a float in the
Homecoming parade that read,
"Deacs have AIDS," referring to
Wake Forest's football team.
Curtis Small (Dist. 5), co-author
of the bill, said it would give the
congress members a chance to go on
record as saying they don't support
the type of behavior, such as wearing

contract can too easily become a one

from discussing specifics, and seemed
most comfortable talking about
theoretical considerations. That was

the T-shirts and making the float, that
promotes stereotypes about AIDS.
The belief that homosexuals are the
only group at risk of acquiring AIDS
is the most dangerous misconception
about the disease, Small said.
"Ignorance of this epidemic is
incredible," Small said. "The point is
not to condemn individuals, but to
point out the kinds of behavior that
put all students at greater risk."
Small said heterosexuals should be
aware that they are also at risk of
contracting the disease.
Student Body President Brian
Bailey called the bill great, but said
more action should be taken.
"Let's face it, it (the bill) is on two
pieces of paper and that's all it's going
to be if we don't take more action,"
