By special orders the body

These amendments, which

The proposed constitutional change,
which would alter the present judic

student body before it becomes law.
Ragsdale' criticism of the con

session Thursday night.
The Honor Council chairman
t rmcd it the "frivilous whim of

Top seeding for the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament March
3-8 will be at stake tonight in puke Indoor Stadium when Carolina's
defending national cage champions and Duke's veteran Blue Devils
?lose out their regular season. Tipoff time is set for 8 o'clock.
A capacity crowd of 8,800 is assured for the traditional battle be
tween the ancient Big Four and ACC rivals. The two clubs come into
the contest bearing identical 10-3 records in conference competition

putting it in the supposedly weaker bracket of the tournament which
will decide the ACC's NCAA representative.

On Bibles; Offers Refunds To Students
If you have recently purchased a
Holy Bible front the University
operated Bookcteria, you're in line
fur an l&ccnt refund on your total
purchase price of $".18.
That was revealed here Thurs
day upon receipt of an Attorney
General's ruling that the Bibles,
Uopite (he fact that they are text
books, are exempt from an 18-cent
Mate sales tax.
All Bibles Exempt
Book Stores Manager H. It.
Ritchie announced the ruling after
notification from the University
Administration that the Attorney
General's office in Raleigh had
termed all Bibles exempt from
the three per cent sales tax.
"The Attorney General's office
advised us that Bibles sold at the

An investigation into alleged viol
ations of the state sales tax laws
was begun two weeks ago today
when The Daily Tar Heel ques
tioned the three-per cent levy on
Bibles sold through book stores
at the University.
At the time. The Daily Tar
Heel based a story on exemptions
listed in "The Sales and Use Tax
Report," an official state docu
ment which excludes, among
other thing, fertilizer, coffins and
Bibles from the sales tax.
With his announcement today,
Ritchie said any student who pur
chased a Bible at the Booketeria
and wants the 18-cent refund
should bring the Bible to the book
Honor System Basis
Refunds will be made on an
"honor system basis" each stu
dent is "on his honor" to sign
for the refund only when he has
purchased a Bible and the tax
paid to the state by the Booketer
ia will later be recalled, Ritchie
However, he noted, if requests
for refund surpass the amount
paid in tax to the Department of
Revenue it will become necessary
for the Booketeria to check rolls
in religion courses to determine
who should receive the kickbacks.
Thursday, when notice of the
exemption was received, Ritchie
instructed the book department
"to take all taxes off Bibles, as

former ruling "that all text books
were taxable, and that is why we

this ruling, we will not tax any

fine move on the part of The
