Hurricane Gloria threw gales and
flooding rains at North Carolina's
coast yesterday night as it howled on
an uncertain path that may take the
130-mph storm on a 1,000-mile coastal
rampage to Cape Cod.
By nightfall, gales on the leading
edge of Gloria ripped apart a 200-foot
pier at Atlantic Beach, N.C., and
torrential rains but some streets in
Beaufort, N.C, under three feet of
"THE WHOLE area of the Nor-
theast is threatened," hurrican
forecaster Jim Lynch said.
"The treat to New Jersey and New
York will probably be tonight. Just a
one or two degree change in the
storm's track could move it from New
Jersey to Massachusetts," he added.
North Carolina Gov. Jim Martin
placed 2,500 National Guard troops on
alert, schools were closed and the Red
Cross rushed to set up storm shelters
along the coast.
GOVERNMENT and military of-
ficials from South Carolina to
Massachusetts reviewed emergency
plans and made storm preparations.
Civil defense officials prepared the
nation's capital for Gloria's torrential
rains and violent winds. Workers
secured scaffolding at the Jefferson
Memorial to prevent damage to its
marble and officials said high winds

could force the closingv of the
Washington Monument.
At 6 p.m. EDT, the center of Gloria
was near latitude 32.6 north, longitude
76 west, 190 miles south of Cape Hat-
teras, moving north at 20 mph. The
storm's forward motion was expected
to accelerate, and a hurricane watch
was issued from Plymouth to East-
port, Maine, in addition to the
hurricane warning.
THE NATIONAL Weather Service
said New England is "looking down a
gun barrel."
"I am afraid we are going to pay a
high death toll one day unless people
respect the awesome power of a
major hurricane," said Samuel
Speck, associate director of the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency in Washington.
While most people scurried from
the path of the storm, some decided to
stay put. Betsie Poindexter, a 20-year-
resident of Atlantic Beach, said she

Meterologist Jack Parrish of,
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, flying in a storm-
tracking plane through Gloria, said in
a radio-telephone interview: "What is
most important about this storm is its
horozontal extent, how big it is. The
hurricane force winds extend at least
150 miles from the center on the east
and the northeast side. It's a very,
very wide windfield. Strong winds."

LSA. discusses majors/nunors

The rising number of LSA students graduating
with double concentrations has prompted the
school's curriculum committee to consider
strengthening departmental requirements or
switching to a major-minor system.
Dean Eugene Nissen brought up the issue for
discussion at the committee's meeting on Wed-
nesday by presenting figures from the 1984-85 An-
hual Report of the LSA Office of Student Academic
ACCORDING to the report, not scheduled for of-
ficiM,-release until next month, the number of
double concentrations has risen from 14.9 percent
of the bachelor of arts graduatea in 1983 to 22.6

percent last spring. In contrast, only 10 percent of
the students receiving bachelor of science degrees
were double concentrators.
The figures Nissen cited proved economics,
political science, communications and English to
be the most popular departments selected by
double concentrators.
"Obviously, it's easier to concentrate in econ.
and poli. sci. than Russian and physics," Nissan
said. "I think there are a few (departments) that
need to be stengthened."
THE REPORT also showed that the average
student with two or more concentrations took only
8.78 terms to graduate, while the average student

working toward only one degree spent 8.98 terms
in class.
"Maybe the question should be raised as to
whether a concentration is really a concentration
when it only consists of 24 credits," added Robert
Wallis, director of LSA Checkpoint and a non-
voting member of the curriculum committee.
Most concentrations in the hard sciences
require 40 credit hours of coursework within the
chosen department and another 20 or 30 credit
hours in prerequisites, he said. But the soft scien-
ce concentrations typically require - between 24
and 30-hours, he added.
Wallis suggested that the school switch to a

Potter said. Although the band had

originally expressed some interest in
the idea, definite arrangements never
panned out, he added.
"I don't have any idea why,"' said
Potter. "My guess is that they are
always considering a wide variety of
possibilities, and that only some of
those work out. I don't think it was
something unusual."
THE commemoration, to be held
Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 7 and 8,
centers around a symposium entitled,
"America's role in Africa's develop-
ment: Past and Future," which will
feature speakers from the U.S. gover-
nment, Africa and other universities.
Originally the conference was
scheduled two weeks later in October,
but the dates were changed to ac-
commodate Bush's trip to China.

But under an early repayment program, which expires
Monday, the council will be required to pay back only
$1.1 million of its debt. Jones said the federal government
is willing to take a loss on the repayment now because it
otherwise would have to borrow money at a much higher
interest rate to loan to the ICC. The council was charged
an interest rate of three percent on that loan.
"We're borrowing a little bit more than a million

back the education department, Jones said.
The bank was established by Congress with the purpose
of making loans to co-operative systems.
