tried to raise awareness of Acquired
Immune Deficiency Syndrome issues.
"We cannot continue to lose the youth
of our country. They are our future."
said Glenn Kent, an ACT-UP member
who spoke at the rally.
Throughout the demonstration, rally
participants took turns lying down to
symbolize the death of AIDS victims. A
whistle blew at seven-minute intervals
to represent the fact that every seven
minutes a person dies from AIDS.
"Look closely at this group," Kent
said of the actors. "They represent the
face of AIDS."
At each interval, the crowd chanted,
"How many more have to die before
you get involved?"
Dr. John Bartlett, a Duke University
physician involved in the treatment of
AIDS patients, said he was concerned
about the availability of care for AIDS
patients. He pointed out that 25 new
HIV-positive patients were admitted to
the Duke Adult Immune Deficiency
Clinic each month. One third of those
patients were women, and more than
half had no health insurance or were
protected by Medicaid.

North Carolina's men's basketball
team could not have hoped for a much
better way to open its 1992-93 season.
Behind a tenacious defense and a
blistering shooting performance, seventh-ranked
UNC cruised past Old Do
minion 119-82 Tuesday night before
18,807 at the Dean E. Smith Center.
Donald Williams led the balanced
scoring for the Tar Heels, hitting for a
career-high 21 points. Eric Montross
added 20, Brian Reese 19 and Pat
Sullivan a career-best 18 for UNC.
Most impressive was North
Carolina's shooting percentage from
the field. The Tar Heels' shooters were
unconscious, shooting 86 percent in the
second half and 75 percent for the game.
"That's definitely the best we've
played," said UNC head coach Dean
Smith. "I'm very pleased with a win.
"I think they'll have a good team. I
guess that means I think we'll have a
UNC won the game with intense
defense, setting up countless Tar Heel
layups. The UNC pressure was enough
to hold the Monarchs to 33-percent
shooting, while North Carolina had 18
steals and forced 23 turnovers.
"We played great defense," Smith
said. "I thought our defense was effec
tive the first 30 minutes.

play that well against a pressing team, a

the press well enough before fouling

six points. Davis also scored six, hitting
his one field-goal attempt and all four of

i CDS Director Chris Derby offered
a simple reason for the switch in Au

Lenoir Dining Hall, Chase Dining
Hall, Union Station and the three South
Campus snack bars.
"The paper cups and items we were
using were wax lined, and there's no
current system for recycling them,"
Derby explained. "They're simply
covered in a landfill and buried, and
they don' t biodegrade because of lack
of exposure to air and water. At least
with styrofoam, we could recycle."
Derby said that to his knowledge,
UNC is the first university in the state
to participate in a styrofoam recycling
program. The program, dubbed
CARE, or Cups Are Recyclable, actu
ally includes plates, bowls and take
out trays in addition to cups.
"That translates into about 220,000
styrofoam items (that are used) per
month between all our campus opera
