The Daily Tar HeelFriday, September 13, 19913 Committee has yet By Deborah Greenwood Staff Writer The visitation policy for University residence halls remains in full force this year despite the creation of a comm ittee to analyze it and suggest changes. The Housing Advisory Board set up a subcommittee to review the policy at the end of last semester. The committee, composed of professors, administrators and students, met briefly before Task force Students march, carry markers to Polk Place By Dawn Wilson Staff Writer One of the three large "stones" read, "Through the silence of a Stone, our voices will be heard." Members of the Dr. Sonja H. Stone Task Force placed the "stones" beside the speaker's stand at a rally Thursday in the Pit. Students wearing purple arm bands moved the "stones" to South Building after the rally as a symbol of commitment to their goals. The task force's goals are to name the Black Cultural Center after Stone, to establish an endowed chair in her honor and to give the African and Afro-American studies curriculum departmental status. "Even if you can't identify with her from a personal standpoint, you understand what she tried to do and the impact she had on this campus," said Wendell McCain, a Campus Y executive member. Student Body President Matt Heyd said a proposal calling for the BCC to be named in Stone's honor will be presented to the Board of Trustees at their first October meeting. A Bicentennial Campaign goal is to find a permanent place for the BCC, he said. Edith Wiggins, associate vice chancellor for student affairs, said the establishment of an African and Afro-American studies department had been a goal for a long time. "Since that goal by necessity has to be led by the faculty of curriculum, I desire the coalition to work with the faculty of curriculum and to support the timetable and strategy that they have laid out," she said. .

He said he hoped they would meet again in the next several weeks. "We had discussed (the committee) before the summer, but we have decided to make the issue of racial segregation in residences of prime importance," Peeler said. The committee will attempt to set up a new visitation policy that gives students greater freedom, he said.

The only word she could use to summarize Stone's life was "priceless" because what she gave to students was priceless, Riggins said. "A lot of people are going around saying let it alone," she said. "Dr. Stone never said let it alone."

RHA co-President Christy Pons said the committee could change the hours of visitation but could not end the policy altogether. A mandate by the UNC Board of Governors requires system schools to have some form of restriction on visitors to residence halls, she said. "Because the policy is not being enforced, there has to be a change," she said. "There must be a better possibility out there." Commuter parking before noon on McCauley restricted by town By Chris Goodson Staff Writer Campus commuters now have one less place to leave their cars, following the Chapel Hill Town Council vote this week to restrict parking on a section of McCauley Street. The council restricted parking on the 300 block of McCauley Street, located on the western edge, of campus, between 8 a.m. and noon on weekdays. Graduate student and commuter Fraser Smith said commuting students need more parking near campus because the bus system is not always convenient. The buses do not run at night during the summer, and during the school year they sometimes only come once per hour at night, Smith said. Construction housing funds would cover $1.2 million of the expenses. The remaining $3 million will be raised through bicentennial funds because! the reopening of the residence halls will coincide with UNC's bicentennial celebration, he said. The renovations of Old East and Old West will include upgrading of electrical and plumbing systems and installa- Thigpen from pae 1 mendation, and the lawyer could propose mediation or try the case in court. Mediation is not an unusual resolution to this type of case, Woodall said. "We send people through these types of programs everyday." Assault on a female is a two-year misdemeanor charge, he said. John Blanchard, director of athletic academic affairs, would not comment on the situation. Neither Athletic Director John j Swofford nor anyone in the football office could be reached for comment: ' COVER WITH LA TERRAZA STAMP 929-6978 Student Desk in visitation policy While Pons said the policy was aimed at protecting roommates' rights. Peeler said it was an attempt to restrict students' sexual activities. 'They are dealing with decisions students should make on their own," he said. "In a way, the housing department is legislating morality. 'The visitation policy is also a form of protection," Peeler said. "For example, in all-female dorms, security is very important." Many students leave campus late at night, and they find it hard to catch a bus, he said. Smith said that for the past few years, the town council slowly has been restricting parking used by commuters near campus. 'They're being very coy about this," he said. Chapel Hill Town Council member Joe Herzenberg said the town understood the needs of commuters, but the historic streets near campus do not have sufficient off-street parking for residents and commuters to use. The town has spent millions of dollars on the bus system in order to serve those needs, Herzenberg said. Herzenberg said he received many letters from commuters who park on McCauley Street asking that parking not be restricted, but he contacted many tion of elevators and corridors, he said. Housing director Wayne Kuncl said new building codes require any building of three stories or more to have an elevator. Hinson said Old East was built in 1795 and Old West in 1823. Neither building had undergone a major renovation since the early 1920s, he said. Old East and Old West will be the only residence halls to undergo major renovations for the next several years. Construction on the $4.9 million Student Recreation Center also has begun. The center is being funded with student activities fees. Anthony Doll, Carolina Athletic Association president, said the project had been recommended by a former CAA president. r FREGAME OYSTER ROAST 'SATURDAY 1-6 $4.00 PER DOZEN $10 IMPORTS ALL DAY SUNDAY 1 Close Bloody Mary $225Oyster Roosters 25 Crawdaddy's 500 Featuring: HAPPY HOUR Mon.-Fri. 5 - 7 PM Steamed Shrimp 15tf 'Crawdaddy's 5CtyHot Wings 25 DAILY DRINK SPECIALS OPEN WEEKDAYS 5:00 PM 'Till You Blow Out Of Tour Flip-Flop SOS W.

Colonel Chutttey's Bar & Grill 300 Wayne Kuncl, housing department director, said the primary purpose of the long-standing pol icy was the protection of residents' privacy. The policy hasn't been revised since 1983, but the housing department will be receptive to changes, Kuncl said. Herbert Davis, associate director of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and an HAB member, said the policy was necessary to protect roommates from unwanted visitors at night. of them and encouraged them to ride the bus. "Most people have seemed to adjust to this system," he said. Smith said one possible solution to the problem would be increased bus service. Another solution would be better enforcement of the present parking rules, including more ticketing and fewer appeals. Smith said. UNC student David Long, whose girlfriend lives on McCauley Street, said cars crowd the street late at night, making it difficult to find a place to park. The lackofparking makes McCauley Street dangerous for women at night, Long said. The commuters should learn to use the public transit system, he said. "It's not so horrific to ride the bus." from page 1 "Carol Geer, Carolina Athletic Association president from 1987 to 1989, realized that student facilities for weight training and aerobics were completely inadequate," Doll said. The center will have about 10,000 square feet of aerobic facilities and another 1 0,000 square feet of weight training facilities, Doll said. The Wellness Resource Center also will be moved from Woolen Gym to the center. The project is scheduled to be completed in February 1993. Swecker said new School of Social Work building plans had been completed, but it was not under construction because the N.C. legislature had not allocated funds for it. The report to the BOT lists the social work building as a high priority request. West Rosemary Street 942-7575
