schedule final exams before Christmas
vacation ;will be submitted by the
Chancellor's Committee on the Calendar
to the Committee on Instructional
Personnel for approval.
The proposed calendar sets fall
semester to begin in late August with
exams ending before the Christmas break.
Spring semester would begin in January
and end early in May.
Dr. Lillian Y. Lehman, chairman of the
committee, said the proposed calendar
would be sent to the Committee on
Instructional Personnel, where it could be
amended or rejected. The Committee on
Instructional Personnel is composed of
deans and representatives from various
areas on campus. Recommendations
would then be sent to Chancellor J.

There is also a difference between the
two proposals in regards to service to the
campus and transfers between the campus
and town routes.
The Gastonia proposal would provide
more hours of service to the campus and
would embody relatively simple transfer
procedures. Transfers under the Raleigh
proposal would be more complicated and
possibly more expensive.

Inter Fraternity Council (IFC) court
has decided it will no longer check
fraternity houses for visitation violations.
Responsibility for checking violations will
be left to individual fraternity houses.
A statement issued by IFC Monday
night said, "IFC recognizes the right of
each house to self-determine its visitation
policy ....Each house will set up and
enforce its own visitation policy."
Pete Hall, president of IFC,
