And come Saturday, when the Tar Heels meet Wake Forest, the team will be operating against psychological as well as physical advantages. Forward Bill Chamberlain will definitely miss the Clemson contest, which begins at 8 o'clock, and guards George Karl and Dale Gipple are also doubtful, according to Coach Dean Smith. Chamberlain suffered a severe charleyhorse in practice Monday, while Gipple sustained a bruised arm. Karl's left knee, injured against Duke last weekend, has not responded well to treatment. Vol. 78, No. i o ot flTuTI by Karen Jurgensen Staff Writer Hearings on the future of the UNC yearbook began Tuesday night with initial testimony indicating a reluctance to continue financial support of the publication by Student Government. The committee investigating the Yackety Yack was appointed by the Publications Board, the body in charge of financial matters concerning all campus publications and media. Statements from Student Body President Tom Bello, Publications Board member Tony Lentz and Board Chairman Steve Ayers were generally critical of the continued apportionment of more than , $5d,000 from Student Government funds for the book. . !i( Various alternatives were proffered by those present at the hearing. The most popular possibility appears to be putting the Yack on a subscription basis. , - Before any decision is taken, Committee Chairman Mike Almond and 4 c Black panther to AnuM-poMce rally today by Bill Pope Staff Writer A rally is scheduled for noon today at the pit to "protest the political and, cultural repression by the police' according to organizer Ron Mendel. Mendel said the rally was organized because of the "activities of the police in the attempted drug bust here and the campaign by law enforcement agencies to destroy Black Panthers and the National Committee to Combat Fascism." Legislature against trying drug by Lou Bonds Staff Writer Student Legislature Thursday night took a stand against the so-called Double Jeopardy Judicial practice of trying students, convicted in civil courts of drug offenses, in student courts. The action came in a special session called to review the Judicial Reforms Committee Report which will be resubmitted to the committee following legislative suggestions. The subject of drugs was introduced in an eight page list of Legislature's amendment offerings to the Judicial Reforms Report. One of the amendments proposed was to change the Committee's report, which includes trafficking and possession of illegal drugs as Honor Code offenses, to cite only the sale of such drugs as an offense. Several legislators immediately took exception to the proposal and declared sale or possession of narcotics as a civil offense not within the University's regulatory jurisdiction. Legislator Alan Nagle, speaking against the amendment, said, "If a student conduct, the final say over the contents court, he is not going to be able to go to school anyway. He'll be in jail. "The University has no authority to interfere in civil matters affecting the individual student," he continued. The amendment proposal was later put But the Tar Heels, who had largely succeeded through 12 games in avoiding the injuries which plagued them last year, could be handicapped even more by their transformation from the hunter to the hunted. After taking on Coach Tates Locke's deliberate, dangerous Clemson squad, the Tar Heels msut leave the security of Carmichael Auditorium, where they have won 44 of 50 games in the six-year history of the arena. Waiting for them in Winston-Salem Saturday night will be Charlie Davis, Gil McGregor and the rest of the Demon Deacons-merely Coach Jack McCloskey's best team at Wake Forest, he says. Carolina has swept three wins in a row in Atlantic Coast Conference play and. although picked by many to finish in the ifn? tit? 78 Years Of Editorial Freedom 4 Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Thursday, January 14, 1971 O rXN TT Ts TVOTT TVTN luiliJl Yack Editor JoMitchiner plan to arrange a campus-wide referendum in which students will be able to express their feelings about the yearbook. Voting cards with yes and no answers will be available when students receive class schedules for next semester. Some 1 2,000 cards will be put out. "We need as many responses as possible," Almond said Tuesday, "as the voting will have a pivotal influence for next year's Yack." The subcommittee is to examine the feasibility of continuing the Yack, possible changes and financial priorities. Almond expressed a desire that ' studentsjQSioaITtaeitly accept? an ..appropriation:' in excess of $50,000. He hopes the hearings will make the student body aware of the situation and students will express their preferences with the , referendum. Ayers,'first to make a statement, said, "As a student, I look forward to seeing the Yack for nostalgic purposes, but as an official, I feel it is not a good set-up. speak Representatives Panther headquarters from the Black in Winston-Salem and an eyewitness to the police drug raid in James dormitory last Friday will be the main speakers. The rally will be held in the pit. If there is inclement weather it will be held in the Great Hall, says Mendel. The Winston-Salem Black Panther headquarters was the scene of a gun battle between 50 police and two blacks Tuesday. No one was injured, but two cases to a vote and failed by a wide margin. Action on the entire Judicial Reforms Report was deferred until a later meeting. Legislature managed to struggle through only two pages of the amendment proposals. The remaining six pages are expected to be reviewed in tonight's meeting along with regular business. After the amendments have been voted on one at a time, the body will then turn to the 35-page report itself. The report, along with the amendment proposals, will then be sent back to the Judicial Reforms Committee for approval. The Committee, comprised of faculty, students and administrative officals will have the final say on the reform measures rendering legislative amendments as suggestions only. In additon to Legislature's chance to offer suggestions, the Chancellor, the Faculty Council and the Student Body President will be given the same opportunity to propose amendments. After the final meeting of the Reforms Committee, the finished draft of the report will be offered for student approval in a special referendum. A majority vote in either the affirmative or the negative will decide the bill's fate. Certain sentiment, was expressed against allowing the Judicial Reforms Committee, or Committee on Student Conducl, the final say over the ocnlenls of the bill. o fP fC? TTTrTl vnvii" m leagues second division, sits alone atop the standings. "We now will lose some of the psychological advantage which comes with being the underdog, says Smith. "But we've been in this position before and it just means we have more responsibility to be ready for every game." Tonight, the Tar Heels must be ready for an opponent which lost by only 10 points to Virginia last Saturday and by only four to Maryland on Monday. Which is to say, Gemson caught the Cavaliers looking ahead to their game with South Carolina and caught the Terrapins immediately after their upset over that club. Clemson, bringing a 3-5 record and a n bo n o Munid Ayers said he would like to see the Yack on a more independent basis, perhaps subscription, in view of what he considers "exorbitant" appropriations. He will consider the possibility of subsidies. The Yack appropriation ($52,000) is the largest, Ayers said, in the Student Government budget without outside supplementation. He added if the Graduate Student. Legislature receives those fees from graduate students then cuts will be necessary in many areas of the undergraduate government budget. v Belkvnext to make a statement, said personally "he is' "opposed to a college yearbook being funded by an entire student body." Listing possibilities for alternative appr6priations of the $52,000, Bello cited expanding student services such as hiring a lawyer for Studen.' Government to defend student civil rights and funding scholarships. blacks were charged with stealing a truckload of meat. In the attempted drug raid at James, Steve Gothard, a UNC student, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. "It is extremely important students hear the complete explanation behind both these instances," said Mendel, "especially the Winston Salem confrontation." 'There is a link between the two experiences of repression and brutality lying in the struggle for self-determination by young people in regard to shaping their personal lives without authoritarian invasion of privacy and by black people in regard to creating a society predicating on community control of police and the democratic allocation of economic and human resources," Mendel continued. Ben Blakewood, another organizer of the rally, said the Black Panther version of the Winston-Salem incident in"completely different" from the accounts by the wire services. Blakewood, who talked with Black Panthers Tuesday night, says the news media gave only the police version of the incident. "There are many questions which need to be answered," Blakewood commented, "a student should have the opportunity to hear both sides and judge for himself." WGAR presents arrested student WCAR, campus radio station, will question Steve Gothard, the student arrested last Friday for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, concerning the incident on a talk program tonight from 10:30 to midnight. John Ashley, who will moderate the program, said station telephones will be open for students to call in questions. The number is 933-3600. Ashley said a representative of the Chapel Hill Police Department may be present for the talk program. Although there was favorable response toward the program from police, Ashley said, there has been no definite comment. 6-11 center in Dave Angel, comes to Chapel Hill with something old and something new-not to mention the fact that it is challenging the third in the triumvirate of South Carolina conquerors. The Tigers, traditional losers on the court, retain their customary poor record, but new Coach Tate Locke, who replaced kind-hearted t ineffective Bobby Roberts, has a determined attitude and a center who is tall enough to look his opponent in the eye. Things get no easier for UNC on Saturday. The slim, 6-1, 158-pound "CD." is averaging 26 points a game this season, another "fantastic year," according to Coach McCloskey. McGregor, the 6-7, 240-pound center, rivals him in importance to the Deacons, r r Founded February 23, 1893 m m As a president, however, Bello said he thought there should be a yearbook on " perhaps a subscription basis. "I've talked to a lot of students who do want a yearbook," Bello said. He reiterated the need for a campus referendum, saying a subsidy should be , made according to the number of students showing interest in the Yack (e.g. if 50 percent of the students are in favor of the Yack on a subscription basis, then there should be a sizeable subsidy). "Not having more money to operate .with this year has hurt the student t "body," Bello said, adding 20 percent of Student Government funds "to' "the.. The third statement Tuesday night was made by Lentz, a graduate student. "Either you have a Yack or you ; don't," Lentz said, by way of defining i , the issue as he sees it. : ' He said the Yack cannot successful! operate on a subscription basis, because.' ' the fewer the subscriptions the lower the ; budget and therefore the smaller the i book. Lentz sees this as a vicious cycle r leading to the demise of the publication. "A subscription Yack is a dead Yack," i Lentz said. A subsidy and subscription i plan is begging the question which is the demise of the Yack, he continued. "My personal feeling is against the Yack. Publication costs are so high that sentimentality is getting expensive. The money is better spent elsewhere." However, Lentz concluded, "I don't - think personally the majority of the students and legislators would like to see the Yack die. It's one of the few hard, concrete things we get out of Student Government." Along with the others, Lentz advocates a student referendum. Following Lentz' testimony the meeting adjourned. Hearings continue tonight and Friday night at 7 p.m. in SG executive offices in. Suite C of the Carolina Union. All interested students are welcome. Mitchiner will present a defense of the Yack on Friday evening. o tog Cairirlb ecftiiic ami e, by Evans Witt Staff Writer The Town of Carrboro will ask for an injunction against the University to prevent it from raising its electric rates 2Vi percent. The rise in the rates, announced Wednesday, would affect the electric bills of all residents of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area, beginning in February. The Carrboro Board of Alderman voted voted unanimously Tuesday night to ask the town attorney to seek an injunction against the University until the issue could be brought before the entire Board of Trustees of the University. The aldermen felt the public hearing before the Board of Trustees would accomplis their purpose but believed an injunction was necessary to prevent the University from putting the increased rates into effect before the next trustees meeting. The executive committee of the Board of Trustees approved the increase last Friday. Town Manager Bill Britt said the figures he had obtained from the state budget indicated the University has made however, especially since "he has played more consistently since the Big Four tournament than at anytime in his career. says McCloskey. McGregor and Davis have recieved ample support from seniors Neil Pastushok and Bobby Rhoads and sophomore Pat Kelly. If we continue to play like we have in recent pmes. I think this team could be the best I've had here," said McCloskey. "Experience has helped us tremendously and our shot selection has also been much improved. But things never let up in this conference and we know Carolina is playing as well as anybody in the league right now, concluded the Deac mentor.

Strong Office of Records and Registration L winEscon schedu by Harry Smith Staff Writer Livingston Taylor will appear here Feb. 7 for a Sunday evening concert in Memorial Hall. Richie Leonard, president of the Carolina Union, announced Wednesday the contracts had been signed for the 8 p.m. concert. Taylor, who released his first album last summer,, writes most of his own material. Taylor sees comparison of himself and his older brother James Taylor as inevitable. Livingston quite naturally learned a lot from James, but he says they are moving in very different directions. Livingston is not influenced by the blues as much as James appears to be, and his bright outgoing manner is in contrast .to the quiet articulation of James. led. seek iro "ire) 'iratte over $3,400,000 profit in the last ten years from the electric ' monopoly it exercises here. Alderman Robert Oaks reported investigations of the electric rates and profits of the utilities in 73 other North Carolina municipalities and found that each charges lower rates than the University does to its customers ia this area and still make handsome profits. Oaks pointed out further the University heats the campus free of charge. Carrboro is fighting the rise in electric rates on much the same grounds it is now disputing in court with the University over the water rates the Universtiy charges. Carrboro charges the University exercises governmental monopoly in both water and electric utilities in the area, a well as controlling of the telephone system. The town alledges the University is free from all the normal restraints which are enforced on other utilities and thus is not responsible to the people it serves. .

Chamberlain, Karl and Gipple, were expected to play against Wake Forest. 'People are shooting at us now," Smith says, Its difficult to be in this position, but the complexion of our season has changed, and it's better because it just means that we've been winning.

"I would have to live with somebody else's hype, and there is just no way you can do it. I refuse to be a part of that. ! believe very much in dealing with people with a level ef integrity. I don't beffSve in hype." Leonard said Taylor has been making frequent appearances in the Boston area and has become the "folk hit" of the area. "Carolina Day" has become a hit single. He added Taylor has been wanting to play in Chapel Hill again for some time. Livingston is the son of Dr. Isaac M. Taylor, dean of the UNC School of Medicine.

The town became embroiled in the litigation over the water rates when the University raised the charges some 120 percent on August 1, 1970. The town has refused to pay the increase demanded by the University. Britt further charged the University's supply of electric power to Carrboro leaves the town some 300 percent underpowered. The University justified its rate increase on the grounds of the recent increase in the cost of wholesale power it buys from Duke Power Company.
