Purdy, who has the unusual distinction of presiding over a body which is split evenly with both the University and Stu dent Parties having 25 mem bers, hesitated to say what specific bills would be intro duced. Instead, he discussdd fields which will bring some action from Legislature. On education reform, Purdy said, "I expect Legislature to be sending South Building vol umes of paper this fall. Of course, these will be resolu tions asking the Administra tion to take certain action we. can not pass a bill demanding action." In the judiciary field, Purdy expects a study of the present system. He mentioned the possibi lity of considering a joint court of men and women for class room type offenses. "There are no sex differen ces in such things as cheating and lying," he said. A bill has already been intro duced in this session of Legis lature to create a Supreme See LEGISLATURE Page 6 """"""""""" 3 ( - y f::.,. .-l V - : , f. f.til If. l) t, .

Owen Lewis' 'Art World9 Starts Today Starting today in The Dailv Tar Heel is a regular column designed to provide thorough and professional coverage of a subject heretofor left lacking in the pages of the paper that of N.C. art and artists. Owen Lewis, art editor of the Greensboro Daily News and 1966 Mark Etheridge fellow in art here, begins the column "Art World" on page 4 of today's issue, with a review of, the student art show at Ackland Art Center. Lewis is a 1949 graduate of the University, and a Winston Salem resident. He has been writing for newspapers "since I was 14," chiefly with the Winston-Salem Journal and the Daily News. He has for some time operated his own art gallery and is a past president of the Associated Artists of North Car olina. While at the University studying art, music, drama and journalism under . the Etheridge Fellowship program, he will be contributing to the DTH. Read his column with interest every Sunday. SP Meeting Tonight To Discuss 'Crises9 "Stiident Government in volvement in Major Univer sity Crises" will be the topic of a discussion by three of tha last four student body presidents at the Student Par ty meeting tonight. Th3 meeting is scheduled for 8 o'clock in.Gerrard Hall. It follows the Student Govern ment reception in Graham Memorial. The reception at 7 will give students an oppor tunity to meet Student Govern ment department heads and committee chairmen before in terviews for committee posts begin on Tuesday. At the Student Party meet ing, Student Body President Bob Powell and former pres idents Mike Lawler and Paul Dickson will discuss the role student government played in such recent controversies as the Speaker Ban, the Civil Rights movement of 1963, and the University apartment rule. Powell will also present his major programs for the com ing year.

At the UP meeting former Student Body President Bob Spearman, who is presently a "Rhodes scholar studying at Oxford University, will speak. Lost Items- Jonah, Whale A booklet by Bob Jones Sr. ' entitled "Is Segregation Spiri tual?", a sheet of BJU decals, three ballons with bible stor ies on them Jonah and the Whale, Samson and Delilah, i Adam and Eve. UNC student John Trull made an excursion to Bob Jones University Friday, and brought. , these items back in ""a brown paper bag." He hitchhiked back to Chap el Hill, and when he arrived, he inadvertently left his pre cious bag in the car that had brought him from the Graham exit on Highway 85 to town. "I don't know the driver's name," Trull told the DTH, "but he lives on Green St. I'd certainly appreciate h i s contacting me at 942-5553." Women's rules have taken a change for the better. Women can now wear slacks : and bermuldas on campus. The new rule reads: "Women students are not to wear shorts or slacks in class, in the library, in administrative buildingi, or in University din ing facilities. They are re quested to use discretion in dress in other areas. A penal ty of any violation will be left up to the discretion of the House Council. Another major rule to be changed is closing hours of the dorms. The new rule states: "All coeds, excluding freshmen, must be in their residences Sunday through Thursday at 12 midnight, and Friday and Saturday at 1 a.m. The -old rule said: Monday through Thursday by 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday by 1 a.m. and Sunday by 12 midnight." Before the new rules were put into effect a women stu dent was not allowed to spend ,the night in a motel, hotel or boarding house in Chapel Hill and the vicinity for a UNC function (private club, fraternity, sorority activities, etc.) unless accompanied by her parents. It is now possible to get a special exception to this rule. Permission may be granted by a member of the Residence administration, provided that the request is submitted at least three days in advance of the anticipated function; and provided that the function has University approval for such overnight absence. But, spec ial exceptions will not be giv-' en on weekends when campus wide late permission has been granted. The new rules were put into effect this September. The Women's Residence Council met last year and voted on several proposed plans . After these changes were made they were submit . ted for approval to Dean of Women . students Katherine Carmichael. With Dean Car: michael's approval they were published in the 1966-67 "Reg ulations for Women Students." Copies of this publication are available from the Dean of Women's office or from a member of the Woman's Res idence Council. Star Kentucky halfback Lar ry Seiple scored the only touchdown of the game on a four yard sweep with 5:5C left in the first quarter. Seiple had to leave the game later in the first quarter with an in jury. He was more than ade quately replaced by Homer Goinn, who rushed for 63 yards in 22 carries. Coach Charlie Bradshaw's sophomore - dominated Wild cats found it easy going on the ground against the Tar Heels' defense. The Kentucky running 'at tack picked up 227 yards. Leading the way was quar terback Terry Beadles, who picked up 106 yards on the ground. The Tar Heel offense never got a sustained drive going, as Kentucky defenders continually stopped them on the key plays. The North Carolina running attack managed only 75 yards for the game. Quarterback Danny Talbott led the ball carriers with 39 yards in 10 carries. He also hit on 8 of 17 passes for 75 yards. The Tar Heels won the toss, On the second play from scrimmage, Talbott rolled out to his right for a 14 yard gain " and a first down. Fullback ' Mark Mazza hit the line on the next two plays for a to tal of 3 yards. With third and seven, a Tal bott pass was incomplete and the Tar Heels punted. Kentucky failed to move the ball in three tries. A 47 yard punt put the ball on Caro lina's own 11. After , two un (Continued on Pare 5) Greem rilm Wrapped. "MR T1 TTT Editor's Note: The recent conviction of two stu dents on charges stemming from the sale of stimu lants, and the suspension of four other students have ..again raised questions about the nature of these drugs and their use on this campus. Last spring DTH staffer Ernest Robl spent four weeks of intensive research on this subject. The following is his report on an often underestimated problem. By ERNEST H. ROBL DTH Asst. News Editor Carefully the student unwrapped a small pack age made out of notebook paper. Finally he held up a tiny pink and green pill between his thumb and forefinger. "It's good for 12 hours," he said. "It belongs to Blank, but if he says it's okay, I'll let you have it." The second student regarded it curiously and ask ed "Is it a prescription?" "Oh, yes," the first student replied, "they all are." But when he was asked where his friend Blank had obtained it, he shrugged his shoulders and "said that he did not know. This pill, like literally thousands of others which find their way to students at the University here eve ry year illegally is a "de." "Dex" is the student nickname given to ampheta mine drugs including dexedrine and dexomil. The drugs, normally prescribed for over-eating or exhaus tion act as stimulants and are taken by students to stay awake while "cramming" for exams and quizzes or finishing last minute term papers. Manv University administrators do not see the use of these drugs as a "major problem," but on a na--tionwide basis, pressure is rapidly mounting to con trol the use of these drugs. Simmy because these drugs are illegal without nrescrintions, students are unwilling to talk about theTr use making it extremely difficult to determine how widespread their use is. Dr E. M. Hedgepeth, director of the Student Health Service of the University commented, "There's probably a lot more used than anybody ever knows about." 90 Per Cent Use? In fact some student estimates went as high as saying that in their opinion, 90 per cent of the stu dents use at least one "dex" pill every year. After interviews with a number of students, it appears that 50 per cent is a much more realistic number. These figures do not seem to indicate any graphic change from those of preceding years or a deviation from the national averages. The actual level of use appears to have remained about constant, but recent concern for the misuse of drugs of all kinds has fo cused additional attention on the use of stimulants on college campuses. At the 122nd annual Meeting of the American Psy chiatric Association in Atlantic City, N. J., May 11, one of the major presentations was devoted to a warn ing about the use of these drugs. Dr. Frederick Lamere of the University of Wash ington School of Medicine in Seattle said that it is not generally recognized that the improper use of amphe tamine drugs can have a "damaging effect" emotion ally, and could even damage the brain. Dependency Increasing Lamere told the gathering, "In this country, am phetamine dependency has been increasing, but re cent government controls will materially help to stop the propagation of this serious personal and social dis order." He urged doctors to use extreme caution in pre scribing the drugs least they be used by the wrong persons. But despite the official pronouncements on the use of these drugs, a number of questions remain about them and their relation to college students: What kind of students use these "dex" pills? Where do they get them? How do students feel about their use? A number of students were willing to talk about the use of dex, after being assured that their names would not be used. The first fact that came to light from these inter views was that unlike the users of other drugs, which are normally found in the beatnik elements, 1 dex Want Something To Put You To Sleep, Sonny? user's can be found in any segment of the campus pop- Ulat'ex" users range from honor students attempt ing to maintain their straight "A" average to sta dents who struggle to stay in school and avoid the draft. Sources Evasive The source of supply is by far the aspect of "dex." The typical response to quesUons aloPng this line was -e got But then when one asKs ine uk student speculated that the pms s through seven jfiJrIooi idea not to them. Then he added that it was a goo ask too many questions about tor origms. ThU narticular student said he paw i'" cents or caPsulepenng .cjrOjej strength, but other students indicated tbat as often given away as sold. By far the most frequent source appears to be the student with a prescription for the pihs who is willing to either give away the piUs or to sell them on a cost basis. Arthur Beaumont, head of the campu police force, said that in the past several years there have been only two cases of students attempting to sell these pills for a profit, other than the recent case during the second summer session. Disciplinary Action These students are turned over either to the stu dent judiciary or to a pertinent administrative ag ency for disciplinary action. Beaumont said that almost the only way the cam pus police force finds out about the use of such drugs by students is when he receives a call to pick up a student because of after-effects from taking these pills. He said that there were occasional incidents of this nature, but refused to f-flH!? Reif Student Health Service Psychiatrist Clifford Reif ler, to whom such cases are usually sent, admits that there have been a number of cases of students suffer ing from overdoses of drugs but also refuses to give out the number of cases. - Reifler did however note, that he thought that dependency on stimulant drugs was a bigger problem here than LSD and some other drugs which have re ceived more publicity. Reifler describes the "dex" drugs as non-habit forming," but says that some people come to depend on them', forming a drug "dependency." "Dex" users acknowledge the fact that they are taking a risk, and one student even admitted contin uing to buy the pills on the underground campus mar ket after his father-a doctor-cautioned him agamst their use. When asked about the possible effects of taking "dex" without a doctor's prescription, Student Health Service Director Hedgepeth commented, "Not infre quently, the taking of stimulants will result m aggre gation of the condition for which they were taken. The student will only get more confused and unable to meet demands than if he hadn't taken them." See DEX On Page 6 fr n
