Fear Bombing That Big Test? Try Jungle Sex

A bomb threat in Sitterson Hall. What crazy nut-job thought that one up? On Friday, students, faculty and staff had to be evacuated out of the building after an unidentified caller phoned in a bomb threat. Some speculated that the stunt was a tactic to cancel a test in a Computers 4 class. Item One is commending University police for their quick response. The way I figure it, computer science majors are the only kids smart enough to build a bomb, so there was definitely a chance this thing was for real. Maj.

Hot Shooting Paces UNC

North Carolina's LaQuanda Barksdale led the ACC in scoring and rebounding last year. If Sunday's exhibition game against Athletes in Action is any indication, Barksdale intends to repeat at least one of those accomplishments. Barksdale, a senior forward, hit 11-of-13 shots from the field, netting 27 points and four 3-pointers to lead the Tar Heels to a 90-66 victory against AIA at Carmichael Auditorium. Joining Barksdale in a seemingly effortless shooting day was senior guard Juana Brown, who went 10-for-12 and scored 24 points.

Price for U.S. House

It is an undeniable, though to some unfortunate, fact that many of the decisions that affect North Carolina are made not in the state, but in Washington, D.C. To ensure that those decisions are the right ones, it is essential that voters choose a qualified and reliable candidate to capably represent their interests in Congress. It is for this reason that The Daily Tar Heel endorses David Price for the 4th Congressional District. Price is unquestionably qualified: He has served 12 of the last 14 years in Congress.

Defense Shuts Down ACC Opponents

DURHAM - If the North Carolina women's soccer team and its fans were elated following the Tar Heels' dominating performance in the ACC tournament this weekend, just think how the groundskeepers must feel. Surely, the men and women who tend the field at Koskinen Stadium were off somewhere toasting the beauty of the rule that teams must switch sides after halftime. Had that rule not been in effect, the side of the field that UNC attacked would have gotten awfully chewed up - and the other side would have been in near-mint condition. Applying an overwhelming amount of defensive pressure,

No Real Difference Between Presidential Front-Runners

TO THE EDITOR: Anyone who votes for Al Gore is not "progressive," and any person who thinks there is any real difference between George W. Bush and Gore is mistaken.

Trio Bounced From Qualifying

Sam Paul would love to have eight months to prepare his men's tennis players instead of eight weeks. Yet that's the downside to playing tennis in the fall. There's simply no time. And the North Carolina coach knows it. "One thing about fall tennis is that we have some guys trying to make certain adjustments on their games, so they're not playing well," Paul said. Working to make those adjustments wasn't easy for North Carolina's Greg Archer, Max Hilkey and Nicholas Monroe on Thursday.

Take Advantage Of No-Excuse Voting Before It Ends Today

TO THE EDITOR: I hope students who have moved since the last time they voted will take advantage of the unique opportunity to vote early at the one-stop voting site at Morehead Planetarium. Moving even a short distance can put a voter in a new precinct. If the address has not been changed in advance with the Board of Elections, the voter is in for major delays on Election Day. If the voter goes to the old precinct, he or she must fill out a form, then take it to the new precinct or the transfer site at the Chapel Hill Police Station before being allowed to vote.
