The Finance Committee of Student
Legislature froze the Orientation
Commi.sion's funds Thursday because of
irrepi!?v ies in the commission expense
The Orientation Commission's picnic
could result in a loss of over SI ,000 to SL,
which is back by student financing.
In Other words, the legislature's loss is
the student's loss also.
Student Legislature last spring
appropriated $3,000 to meet immediate
expenses of the commission's orientation
The appropriation met the $2,961 cost
of the contracted price to Chicken Box, a
firm in Durham that was contracted to
provide 4,000 dinners for the orientation
, picnic. A sum of S!00 was contracted to
Coca-Cola Company to provide soft drinks
for the picnic.
The Orientation Commission was
expected to charge 80 cents a dinner in
order to collect the money legislature had
appropriated to meet the immediate costs
of the picnic.
However, the commission delivered
only 2,500 dinners out of the food that
was provided for 4,000 dinner
The commission reported to Finance
Committee Chairman Robert Grady a net
profit of $2,097 leaving a deficit of $913.
Last week, the Orientation Commission
requisitioned $914 extra to meet the
picnic's expenses. Grady reported before
Student Legislature's Thursday session

The amount the commission
requisitioned covered other categories
than the picnic, but Grady said picnic costs
were being multiplied by later requisitions.
Necessary funds needed to meet picnic

The Orientation Commission
reportedly told Grady that the deficit was
due to "inexperienced students serving the

On the surface, Student Legislature
would be absorbing a deficit of at least
S914. However, the administration agreed
last spring to share half of the picnic's cost
with Student Legislature.
In the words of Assistant Dean of Men
Richard Stevens, the administration had
agreed to match the student government

Delta Upsilon had a "remarkably good"
rush. "The actual flow of men was not as
great, but the number of pledges was
greater," commented Todd Llewellyn.
"More people that go through rush are sure
it's what they want."
Only Sigma Alpha Epsilon had no

on"our stringent, one ball policy."

Russo said, "The fraternities are

fact that only 45 men at UNC signed up to
pledge, but 250 pledged.

the necessity of joining is gone. The lesser

"You get a distorted view from fall
