Changing to deal with "issues of current
relevance," Dr. John Martz, department
chairman, said Thursday.
'The subject matter of political
science must deal with contemporary
issues," Martz said, "so there is naturally
more change in our department."
In an interview Thursday, Martz said
the need to deal with contemporary
issues would be reflected in course
offerings and change of emphasis in the
next few years.
, Political Science 95 A, a seminar course
initiated this fall at UNC, has dealt solely
with contemporary issues this semester.
Attracting such speakers as anti-war
activists Rennie Davis and Jane Fonda,
the course has received criticism from
state government officials.
Martz said a joint faculty-graduate
student committee will evaluate the
course at the end of the semester and

was speaking to student leaders in a
meeting held late Thursday afternoon to
discuss the issue of visitation as a result of
statements made by Student Body
President Tommy Bello in Thursday's

Bill Blue, student body vice president,
who had earlier called the visitation issue
a closed matter, stalked out of the
meeting to protest further discussions in
which there would be "no solution."
After passing out statements of
