Tommy Bello, student body president,
is one of 32 Americans to receive a
Rhodes Scholarship for study at Oxford
University in England.
A Morehead scholar and a member of
Phi Beta Kappa, Bello will read in modern
history at Oxford for a minimum of two
years. He later plans to get a law degree
from a northern university and practice
law in North Carolina. As a Rhodes
scholar, he will be eligible to return to
Oxford within a decade for a year
The student body president said the
scholarship is "a compliment to the
University." Bello was the only student
from a state-supported university in the
southeastern region to receive the honor.
Nominated by UNC, Bello first had
two interviews in Greensboro for all
nominees from the stateTerry. Sanford,

of the UNC Medical School, after a
meeting with Sitterson. Sorrow's
committee has the dual charge of
appointing a director- and making
recommendations for changes in the
infirmary, Sitterson said Tuesday.
A preliminary report of the Student
Health and Welfare Committee,
submitted early in December to Sitterson,
will provide the basis of today's meeting.
The report asserted the students' right
as consumers to have a part in
determining the direction and policy of
the infirmary. The establishment of a
student-faculty committee was proposed
to study the problems of student health
care on campus.
The report raised several questions
concerning the present operations of the
infirmary, the nature of student health
needs, criteria for selection of a new
infirmary director and many other areas
which the committee feels need careful

to cost $2,430,000, is one of the top five

The differential housing visitation
policy, which would have gone into effect
in the fall of 1971, allowed
self-determination in policies and rules
concerning hours and rules of conduct on
a differential level in University housing.
The policy, which followed guidelines
set down by a similar policy in effect at
the- University of Tennessee, allowed
students to live in selWetermining
dormitories with parental permission.
After acceptance by the Consultative
Committee, the plan was passed on to the
somewhat surprised since "there are only
32 chosen from the entire United States.
You would have to be either foolish or
terribly egotistical to assume you were
going to receive one."

A bus system covering the University,
Chapel Hill and Carrboro may be in
operation by Feb. 1 of this year.
Gastonia Bus Lines has made a
proposal to the Joint Transportation
Study Commission to operate the system
in conjunction with the two town
governments and with the Student
Government of the University.
The study commission will meet
Thursday to consider the Gastonia
company's proposal, possibly along with
several others, according to Commission
Chairman George Lathrop.
Lathrop said the commission was also

many reservations and questions were
been contacted by the Raleigh City
Coach Lines and the Durham Southern
Coach Lines in regard to the proposed
system. If these companies make
proposals at the regular meeting of the
Commission, they will be considered with
the Gastonia one.
The tentative terms of the contract to
establish the system were presented to
the Commission by Bill Rhyne Jr., a
representative of the Gastonia Lines.

three more buses to serve three town

The policy of visitation on the
differential housing level gave parents and
students more voice in the establishment
of rules, regulations and policies affecting
students with the University setting down
policies to insure protection of property.
That policy also provided for the
University to provide housing for single
students that would range from halls with

at a cost of "S40-50 thousand."
"In addition "to this cost, the
renovations cost a lot in the planning

and new equipment that we installed."
Catlin explained that a food
consultant was hired to suggest changes in
the old food system.

insurance for all its full-time employes.
