"We feel like a dominated minority up here," Richard Hammer, a 41 -year-old building contractor, said about Chapel Hill's neighbor to the north. "We're a little bit bristly up here about people from Chapel Hill coming up here with their 'good intentions' anil running our county." Hammer is one of five candidates for two town board seats. "I'd like to see a fresh approach to government in Hillsborough, and I suspect there are many voters who feel that," he said. "I think the present mayor and his methods are accepted with a grain of salt by many voters." UNC Writing Ceoteir to expand services By SARAH CAGLE Staff Writer Struggling with a composition assignment, an honors thesis or a dissertation? At the end of this month, the UNC Writing Center will have more staff and space to tutor any faculty, staff or students with writing problems. The Writing Center, a free tutorial service sponsored by the English department, is expanding to the basement of Phillips Annex in addition to keeping its office in the basement of the Undergraduate Library. Four more staff members will be added, bringing the number of tutors to 14. "This (the expansion) will triple the space we have," said Carol Pinkston, director of the center. "We will just be able to help more people." CAA to sponsor rally for football opener By TERRI CANADAY Staff Writer The Carolina Athletic Association (CAA) will kick off the 1989 football season, which begins Saturday against Virginia Military Institute (VMI), with a pep rally and band party tonight in Big Frat Court. Local band Shautaugua will begin playing at 8:30 p.m. The rally featuring the UNC cheerleaders, the new mascot, the pep band and mikeman Carl Bryan as master of ceremonies will start at 9:30 p.m. Football Coach Mack Brown will be there with team captains Pat Crowley, Jonathan Hall, Cecil Gray, Torin Dorn and Clarence EDUCATORS and Administrators HEWLETT PACKARD DeskWrlter Printer Designed exclusively for the Macintosh computer Dataprint, the largest Hewlett-Packard Dealer in the Southeast, is now offering a special discount program for educators.

Hammer will be seeking to unseat Remus Smith Jr., four-time town board member and current mayor pro tempore, or J. Michael Kirby, who is serving an unexpired term on the board. Joining Hammer in the hunt for a board seat are Robert Rose, who served on the Hillsborough Planning Board from 1986 to 1989, and Richard Simpson, a current planning board member. Home to the majority of Orange County's population, Chapel Hill residents fill four of the five Orange County Board of Commissioners seats. The only commissioner on the board from Hillsborough is Stephen Halkiotis, board vice chairman. With about 3,500 residents, historic and mainly rural Hillsborough has limited clout on county political issues, though it is the Orange County seat, according to Hillsborough officials. Hillsborough's development and water concerns often run counter to the The expansion will also provide more personal attention and privacy for those being tutored. Paul Crumbley, a UNC graduate student and a tutor at the center, said the separate rooms in the annex would help students feel more comfortable seeking help. The center at the Undergraduate Library is in one room, with only one area for tutoring. "There's a computer lab right next door, so we get the noise from that," said tutor Ellen Giduz, also a UNC graduate student. "The annex would be a better learning environment." Pinkston stressed that the center is not just for freshmen and is not strictly for remedial help. "We see students on all levels, from all departments." In the past several years, the center has served an increasing number of people. About 682 students were served Carter. Tracey Bates and Carla Werden, women's soccer team captains, will represent their team at the rally. The rally will end around 10 p.m., and then the Ben Friedman Band, formerly IBM, will play until midnight. Scott Beckley, Carolina Fever president, said Carolina Fever worked with three fraternities in Big Frat Court to set up the rally. Carolina Fever will set up before the rally tonight and is responsible for scheduling the featured bands. CAA President Lisa Frye said pep rallies last year were successful. She said she was especially excited about tonight's rally because it is the first one Opera singer to open concert series By GRETCHEN DAVIS Staff Writer The UNC fall semester's concert season opens Sunday with a recital by guest artist Rita Noel, mezzo-soprano, and UNC faculty pianist Michael Zenge. Noel has had a successful operatic career all over Europe for the last 20 years, making numerous concert ap- pearances with major orchestras, in cluding the Munich Philharmonic, the Berlin Radio Symphony and the Budapest State Opera Orchestra. She will make her New York solo debut Sept. 12 at Abraham Goodman House's Merkin Recital Hall. The Chapel Hill concert will be a preview of her New York performance. A native of Kannapolis, Noel earned LaserJet Series II The World's Leading Desktop Laser Printer and Macintosh desires of a Chapel Hill-dominated county government. But its residents do share at least one thing in common with their southern neighbors supporting UNC, Mayor Fred Cates Jr. said Wednesday. According to Cates' count, about 12 N.C. State fans and six Duke University backers reside in Hillsborough, "and all the rest of them are fans of the Tar Heels." As for Cates? "You know damn well I ain't no Duke fan," said Cates, who attended UNC for three and a half years and would have graduated in 1951. Cates admitted that he was a Blue Devil supporter once, but that was back in 1939, he said. That fall he raked all the leaves in his yard into a big D-U-K-E and set them afire. "I got probably the severest reprimand from my daddy that he ever gave me format. That probably did the trick." Cates is running for re-election at the center last year, Pinkston said. Writers who are on the right track but just have a question about grammar can call the center's new "grammar hotline" at 962-4060 for a quick answer. "We're able to respond to any question because we have an extensive library of grammar texts," Crumbly said. Writing workshops and "talkshops" for foreign students, which were provided last year, will be offered again this year. A schedule of these events will be formalized later this semester. The Undergraduate Library center will handle all tutorials until renovations to Phillips Annex are completed. Once the center is expanded, the Undergraduate Library center will handle walk-in questions, and only appointments will be handled at Phillips An of the season and, like certain fraternity parties, it's becoming a tradition. "This is the kind of event we love to sponsor," Frye said. She said there would be more rallies later in the season. The planning of the Sept. 29 Homecoming pep rally has already begun. It will begin near the end of the Franklin Street Extravaganza, which will be 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. After the rally, the bands The Press and Liquid Pleasure will play until midnight on Ehringhaus Field. Frye encouraged students to come to tonight's rally. "I hope everyone interested in Carolina football will come degrees in violin and viola at the Ober-lin Conservatory and at the Eastman School of Music before embarking on serious vocal study in the late 1960s. Her first professional vocal experi ence was on tour with the Metropolitan Opera as a chorus singer. She said she realized then that she was "called" to perform vocally. "The voice is a, more personal form of expression than violin or viola. I'm able to communicate more directly with my audience." The program she will perform consists of music by a diverse group of composers, including works by Purcell, Faure and Granados, and the more contemporary John Musto and William Bolcom. The program also. in- eludes Richard Wagner's "Wesendonck Lieder, his only song cycle, and two operatic arias: "Voce di donna" from Ponchielli's "La Gioconda" and "Cruda sorte" from Rossini's "L'ltaliana in Algeri." "It's unusual to find a mezzo who can successfully perform with the bigness necessary for Wagner and the agility required for Rossini," Zenge said. Zenge has accompanied Noel for the last decade whenever she has performed in this country, and he will travel to New York to play for her debut. "Rita Noel's vocal talents are more pronounced even than her string abilities," he said, "though those, too, are obviously considerable." Noel said she deliberately chose the music for this concert to show all facets f IF2&IIIIDAV & SATUJMDAY j A1LIL CAMILIEA CILASSIIC VMiEYESAILIL TDIMRJMERnT FRI. 7:30 PM UNC vs. ASU Carmichael SAT. 12:00 Noon UNC vs. UNC-W 4:00 PM UNC vs. UNC-A 7:30 PM UNC vs. ECU Fetzer Gym against Horace Johnson, a current town board member, in what promises to be an impassioned race. Johnson, serving his third term on the board, and Cates are frequent political foes, with Johnson typically opposing positions supported by the mayor. When Johnson apparently the first black candidate for mayor in Hillsborough's history filed for mayor, he characterized Cates as "a buffoon" whose frequent local television news appearances and often controversial public stances made residents "look like country bumpkins." Cates is now serving his eighth term as mayor of Hillsborough. Clearing up the rust-colored water in town is a more pressing concern to him than re-election, Cates said, and he is neither confident nor pessimistic about his chances. "I'm just going to take the campaign to the voters, tell it like it is and let the people make a decision." nex. The phone number at the annex is 962-7710. Several students said they thought the expansion of the center was a good idea. "I'd be more likely to use it with it in an enclosed environment," said Robin Murray, a freshman from Fuquay-Varina. "It would probably allow me to think without other commotion going on." Angela Jones, a senior from Durham, said that although the expansion was probably necessary, she was not sure it would attract more students. "There are a lot of people who could stand some help with their writing, and there are a lot of good people there (at the center) to help," she said. "But I don't know if the expansion will increase the number of people that would go- out. It's a great way to support the team." Many students are looking forward to a new season and a fresh start. "We have nowhere to go but up," said Matt Sobota, a senior from Kernersville, referring to last year's 1-10 record. Raj Wadehra, a senior from New York, added, "I have faith in the team. I think we'll go undefeated." Saturday's game will be most freshmen's first Carolina football game. Meredith Powers, a freshman from Lenoir, said she thinks it will be exciting to go to the games and to get involved in the action. "I expect our team to give it their best shot." of her voice and abilities. She also chose works that she enjoys and that she has previously performed so she'd feel comfortable with them, she said. Noel and Zenge agree that performing music they really enjoy makes for a much better performance both for them and for the audience. Most of the music on the program is music they've done together before, with the exception of the Musto, the Faure and the Wagner song cycle. Noel decided last November to do her debut recital in New York, but the music was selected only last May. But Noel's success in Europe has not yet translated itself to the United States, she said. While she has been employed almost continuously with opera companies all over Europe including German opera companies in Berlin, East Berlin, Bielefeld, Heidelberg and Munich, as well as companies in France, Belgium and Holland she said, "I'm not a big name in the States." She has recently released a compact disc of operatic arias and said she felt it would be helpful to start performing here in America to increase both her familiarity and her popularity with American audiences. Her first step in this direction will be her concert at UNC. Rita Noel and Michael Zenge-will perform Sunday at 8 pm. in Hill Hall Auditorium. The concert is freehand open to the public.
