Each floor will have its own electrical panel Me instead of there being -just oneu.le.ct rical panel per dorm. The dorms wiH complained also receive new, bookshelves with mounted study lights in each room to replace the study facilities now there. Other improvements will include the replacement of worn-out floor tile, the installation of rubber treads to ensure safety on the stairwells, a limited amount of painting in areas where it is needed and the reworking of the hardware AMDS. The letters request financial support as well as donations of time devoted to special' classes for the disadvantaged. . Jim Hornstein, chairman of AMDS, said Wednesday the organization is also in. need of support from both administration and students. The AMDS was' founded in the fall of 1968 by a group of students who believe the state university system has practiced i a policy of exclusion against Indians, Negroes'. and disadvantaged whites. - The group's goal is to correct these inequalities and "change the mental orientation of the minority and disadvantaged students toward such places as Carolina." Hornstein cited scholarships for the underprivileged as examples of AMDS work. The organization, in a co-ordinated project with the Consolidated University, submitted a list of underprivileged high school students with excellent academic records for consideration of financial aid. AMDS is playing an active role in obtaining funds for the disadvantaged, according to Hornstein. AMDS recently requested $108,000 from the Mary. Babcock Reynold! foundation. Hornstein said reception of the requests wsi "most favorable." Hornstein noted thi psychological barriers confronting the disadvantaged student could be as formidablf as the obstacles of finance and admissions. AMDS hopes to provide student counsellors to help students, with persona! problems. - Solicits -in Kir DTH Staff Photo by Cliff Kolovson Brown on doors to improve the locks.

They agreed the d orm -needed new wiring and also about the rattling pipes, the unadjustable radiators which leave residents "either too hot or too cold" and the windows wrhich refuse to open "without taking some skin off your hands?' Dennis Fox, a resident of Everett, said he was happy with his dorm although . he agreed the lighting needed improvement. The only specific criticism Fox had was 'UDDOr JL JL Hornstein stressed the group is "not trying to pawn off our education values . on other people." He emphasized the underprivileged must face social and educational problems within the University and must work in high school to maximize their chances of attending college. Hornstein concluded AMDS would gain importance because of the recent HEW findings on the small number of black students and professors in the University community. "The only way this University will be able to comply with HEW 'will be through reshuffling of priorities on a top level in the state legislature to appropriate funds so that programs like ours can be broadened," he said. .

Clemson battled the Tar Heels stubbornly in Greenville before succumbing to a late Charlie Scott blitz that forged a 96-91 UNC win. But the Tigers have had rough sledding since, losing their last four games and carrying a 6-13 overall mark .into tonight's opener. Clemson stands 1-7 in Atlantic Coast - Conference play. The Tigers will again be paced by two-time ACC scoring champ Butch Zatezalo, who brings a 21.3 mark into the doubleheader. Zatezalo, you remember, was held to nine points by Eddie Fogler in the first game between the two teams and was recently held to four by South Carolina's Bobby Cremins. Snapshooting guard Dave Thomas who nearly sharpshot the Tar Heels out of Littlejohn Coliseum mans the back with Zatezalo and carries a 12.7 point producing average into the contest. Thomas is a streak shooter who was hotter than a Zoom single strip against the -Tar Heels in January. Super senior center Richie Mahaffey occupies the pivot em public speech. The speaker is being co-sponsored by the Carolina Forum, the American Professors for Peace in the Middle East, Hillel and the UNC political, science department. Decision Promised In On UNC Professor's A District Court decision on an injunction seeking to prevent the University from firing former professor David Blevins will come, within the next ten days, according to U.S. District Court Judge Eugene A. Gordon. Blevins was convicted by the University Hearings Committee in January: for disrupting the University by failing to meet a scheduled class at UNC-Charlotte, in observation of the October 15 Vietnam moratorium. Blevins is attempting to keep his teaching position until his case against the University comes to trial. Judge Gordon heard the 1 um aiajj rtioio ny f tiff Koiorson in Coll r s j lK"? ti tt I i T4 13. 1970 and since his return to eligibility has averaged 13.5 and nine rebounds per game. Mahaffey's comeback has moved 6-7 Greg Latin back to the comer where he has produced at a creditable 14.5 and 9.5 pace. He is joined by forward Ronnie Yates who rounds out the balanced Tiger attack with 10.7 points and five rebound credentials. By all rights, Saturday's competition should prove slightly tougher for the 15-4 Tar Heels to handle. The maturing Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech Coach Whack Hyder have been steadily improving over the past three seasons. Spearheaded by 6-9 junior center Rich Yunkus, Tech currently holds a 12-7 record against some formidable opponents. Yunkus is an adept scorer who totes a 28 point average into Charlotte. The gangling lefty has hit a remarkable 56 per cent of his shots and is currently grabbing nearly 12 rebounds a contest. With Yunkus in the Yellowjacket frontcourt stands 6-7 forward Bob Seemer, a 14 point scorer that's connecting on 54 per cent of his heaves. Amazingly, the other forward is even more accurate than both Seemer and Yunkus. Bill Mayer is averaging just over 13 a game but tickles the twines . 61 per cent of his attempts. That's funny. In fact, the whole Georgia Tech team is shooting at better than a 50 per cent clip, with inexperienced guards Jim Thome (10.2) and John Hoggle (4.7) holding down the Jacket average. Carolina demolished Georgia Tech in Atlanta last season after a similar trouncing the year before here at Charlotte. Both victories, however, were needy revenge for an 82-80 upset for the Yellow Jackets back in 1966-67. . Carolina attempts to increase its streaks over both Clemson (five straight) and presentations of Charlotte lawyer Adam Stein, representing Blevins, and Burley Mitchell of the state Attorney General's office, representing the University. He instructed them to enter written briefs no later than Tuesday. Judge Gordon will review the briefs, along with the evidence put forth by both sides, and will decide the case within the next ten days. Stein argued Blevins was denied due process of law in the handling of his case by the University. He cited six earlier court actions to back up his statements. " Stein contended Blevins was never given a hearing by the University, even though his case, was aired before the Hearings Committee. He alleged' this board was merely "an advisory panel to University President William C. Friday," of an official hearings board. . The attorney added thaty according to the policy set forth by the Board of Trustees when they enacted the disruptions policy in October, Friday is supposed to take the advice of the Hearings Committee and render a decision in each case. Friday declined to do this in a personal letter to Blevins last month. " Friday informed Blevins since his contract with the University as a part-time lecturer was expiring January 30 he would not take any action to penalize him. Blevins was informed his contract Georgia Tech with a slowly but surely mending lineup. Glimpses of the Charlotte Coliseum Court where the ACC Tournament will be held next month should speed Tar Heel recoveries. v All-America Charlie Scott has been suffering from severe scoring fever and is now rattling along at a 26.8 ppg clip. His sickness is the only one that Dean Smith hopes will linger. Scott has rifled in 33, 31, 30, 28, 43, 35, 28 and 28 points in his last eight official appearances and is on the brink of being stamped lethal.

One of the cases cited by Stein concerned a high school teacher fired because she took part in a civil rights demonstration. The court ordered the teacher re-hired by the school. Judge Gordon responded, "but the University will say, and I am just surmising here, that it failed to rehire Mr. Blevins not because of his views about the -Vietnam war 10 The following is a schedule of events for the Granville Residence College Black Nationalist Symposium being held this weekend at Granville Towers.
