Chase Hall will not be open for break
fast on weekdays next year because of
low sales during breakfast hours during
the past three years.
Chris Derby, director of Carolina
Dining Services, said Chase made $500
or less daily during the breakfast hours
because of the low student turnout.
"There has been no participation at
breakfast in Chase," he said. "We only
service five to 10 people (with full hot
meals) between 7 and 8 a.m."

7:30 to 9:30 in the mornings for break
fast but will discontinue afternoon hours
and reopen only from 7 p.m. to mid

In August 1988, the Rape Treatment
Center at the Santa Monica Hospital
Medical Center released a report advo
cating specific prohibitions against rape
and sexual assault in student conduct
codes, along with the implementation
of peer review boards on campus.
The report was partly in response to
the growing number of rape victims
from college campuses coming into the
treatment center, said Marybeth Roden,
assistant director at the center.
At the time, many campuses were
unable to respond to victims' needs
because they had no procedures for
dealing with these crimes, Roden said.
Universities also are becoming more
sensitive to the legal risks involved in
having students accused of campus rape,
Carolyn Elfland, interim police chief,
added that Great Hall's location in the

Student Congress passed a resolu
tion Wednesday encouraging adminis
trators to adopt a grievance procedure
for part-time University student em
ployees. Former congress Speaker Tim Moore
said that non-student University em
ployees had a grievance procedure but
that students employed part-time by the
University did not.
"We're representing students,"
Moore said. "Many of them need these
jobs for financial-aid purposes. Where
the system isn't working to help these
students, we're going to try and change
Without a grievance procedure for
Roden said. The university's liability in
cases like these is questioned, she said.
Assault Support Services at Duke Uni
versity, said: "Colleges are scared about
being sued. They want to do it right."
A number of universities have been
sued by women who were raped or
sexually assaulted because of inadequate
security or lack of rape-awareness edu
cation on campus.
Most of these cases have been settled
out of court, but two 1984 cases typify
the rulings of those that have made it to
trial; in a New York case and a Califor
nia case, the state and the university
were held responsible after students
were raped on campus due to inad
equate security precautions.
Establishing effective policies will
have profound implications for the vic
tims of rape and sexual assault.
Willa Young, coordinator of the rape
prevention and education program at
Ohio State University, said a university
judicial process could help empower
women by increasing their alternatives
and allowing them to tailor the alleged
rapist's punishment to their own needs.
"It depends on what the rape survivor
wants," Young said. "Sometimes they
just want to say to their assailant, 'I'm
putting you on public notice.' Some
times they want to be able to stand up to
their assailant and say 'You raped me,
and that is not acceptable.'
"It depends on what their desire and
their objective is. Some don't see any
kind of satisfaction in (public recogni
tion of the crime)."

option for victims of date and acquain

proving rape when force is not involved.

prove the attacker used physical force,
said Carl Fox, Orange-Chatham district
"The law requires proof that actual
force was involved that means some
kind of evidence that threats or fear of
threat was used by the attacker," Fox
said. "It would be different if we just
had to prove it occurred without con

A committee of student leaders and

The party planned for April 17 was
permissible because it was scheduled to

University students, Curtis said.

that children were too young to under
