A Morehead scholar and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Bello will read in modern history at Oxford for a minimum of two years.

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, former governer and president of Duke University, announced Bello and Herbert lxng of the Air Force Academy would compete in Atlanta for the southeastern region.

Carlyle Sitterson to appoint a new infirmary director. According to Mike Knowles, committee member, the students will present several suggestions and extensive recommendations concerning the new student infirmary. The Student Health and Welfare Committee was referred to the committee chaired by Dr. J. Mitchell Sorrow, dean 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 consideration. . The new student infirmary, estimated to cost $2,430,000, is one of the top five items requested by Sitterson for construction on the Chapel Hill campus. announcement would be made by the office of Consolidated University President William C. Friday in the near future. 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 Mlno'dles 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 native of Raleigh, Bello is a graduate of Needham Broughton High School. He is a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece and the Order of the Grail. The 21 -year-old senior English and history major served as governor of James Residence College in his junior year.

Lathrop said the commission was also Administrative Council, made up of President Friday and his staff and the chancellors and chief business and financial officers of the six schools in the Consolidated University. The policy no longer seems viable," Sitterson said. "The question came up of how the differential housing policy could be put into effect, he said, "and the Council decided to send it back to the student body presidents and deans of the schools. When " the deans and student body presidents discussed the policy, a good many reservations and questions were raised. 1 I i Tom Bello Urns eirviiee 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. The proposed service would continue the campus bus routes as they now are but would also provide for a minimum of three more buses to serve three town routes. The hours for the campus bus service would be identical to present ones. The proposed hours of operation for the iown It was from that group that the decision was actually made.

'The concept we gave him to work with was 'please the most students and do a lot of business, " Catlin said. The usual first day problems showed up Monday, when the snack bar reopened. Slowly moving lines were caused by new cash registers that employees were not familiar with.
