RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 25. tff Sen. Harry Flood Byrd (D-Va) re
versed today an announced decision to retire.
Byrd, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and a long-time
advocate of fiscal conservatism, said he would seek a fifth term. He
announced his decision in a message to the General Assembly of Vir
ginia. It quoted a statement of consent from Mrs. Byrd whose illness was
given as the reason in his retirement statement Feb. 12. She has been
going to Washington in an ambulance.
Today's message was greeted with applause in the Assembly which
had asked him to reconsider retirement. Gov. J. Lindsay Almond
i hastened to offer unqualified support. Four former Virginia governors
i who had joined in a request that he run again expressed gratification.
( Sen. Frear (D-Del) interrupted a meeting of the Finance Committee

Byrd would run again. Sens. Mar

Controversy Flares Up
Over Student Housing
RALEIGH, Feb. 25. lift A statement from the State Board of Higher
Education in its row with trustees of the Consolidated University of
North Carolina is expected within the next few days.
This was indicated today by Dr. J. Harris Furks, the state's Director
of Higher Education. He conferred by telephone with members of the
higher education board about criticism of the board voiced at a meet
ing of the UNO trustees yesterday in Greensboro.
Dr. Furks said, "It's very likely" that the board will issue a state
ment. He declined to make any comment himself and said that "Any
statement with respect to these matters will come from the board."
The board's chairman, D. Hiden Ramsey of Asheville, commented sim
ilarly. Discontent of the trustees with the new higher education board
flared into the open as the result of a dispute over the provision of
quarters for married students at
North, Carolina State College.

mended in the planning and construction
