All Student Government funds, with
the exception of those for The Daily Tar
Heel and WCAR, have been frozen by the
Student Legislature Finance Committee
in the wake of a delay on the switch in
the system of disbursing the funds.
The action came Thursday night after
Joseph C. Eagles, vice-chancellor for
financial affairs, said the new system of
disbursing fees could not go into effect
until Student Activities Fund (SAF)
accounts have been closed out.
sOnce those accounts are completely
closed out, Eagles said, the expenditure
of funds can begin to be made
immediately through the University
accounting' office as was agreed upon
earlier this week by administration
officials and representatives of Student
The system, which is part of a move to
make policy on student activities fees the
same on all campuses of the Consolidated
University, will replace the SAF office in
the Carolina Union and require that all
expenditures be made through the
University's requisition system.
Student Government officials had
been operating under the assumption that
the present accounts would remain open
and that the new system would begin
operation immediately, regardless of the
status of SAF accounts.
'There are two options," Eagles said.
"They (Student Government) can go on
and spend (the funds presently in SAF
accounts) and then the next requisition
will be written on the new system, or
they can close out the accounts and put
the funds in the trust fund.
"I think those accounts should be
closed out down there," Eagles added. "I
don't think we should work on both
(systems) at once. It makes no difference
to me which they do."
The Finance Committee put the freeze
into effect during the Thursday night
meeting of Student Legislature (SL) after
a unanimous vote.
Prior to freezing the funds, committee
chairman Robert Grady said, in reaction
to Eagles' statement, "I think that any
treasurer that would draw his funds out
of the Student Activity Fund is a fool
and a traitor, and I hope that anyone who
did that would be impeached by his
"It appears that somebody has lied,"
Grady said, referring to administrative
officials present at the Tuesday meeting
when the decision was made to go ahead
with the change in disbursement systems.
"They (the Administration) want to
bankrupt us," Grady said. "Money is the
nly power we've got."
Student Body President Tom Bello
could not be reached for comment, and
Consolidated University President William
G. Friday declined comment on Eagles
statement, saying he needed time to
study the effects of the action.
Student Body Treasurer Gull Waddell
told the legislators, "If this (Eagles'
statement) is in fact true, then I feel the
trust which Mr. Friday so ardently strived
to establish has been blatantly
violated ... I feel all students should be
Waddell, speaking for the executive
branch of Student Government, said no
action on Eagles' statement would be
taken until officials had a chance to
confer with all organizations affected by
the decision, including the Residence
College Federation, the Carolina Union,
the Spurgeon Dental Society, the
Whitehead Medical Society and the
Student Bar Association.
Joe Beard, leader of conservative
factions on campus, added his strong
disapproval of the current situation
Thursday afternoon before Eagles made
"I think they have thrown the baby
out with the bath water," Beard said of
the change in disbursement systems. "It is

well-deserved, but to the rest of Student
Government, to whom it is not
The situation, Beard said, has passed

"In his classic sloth, indifference and
irresponsibility, Mr. Bello has simply
ignored the situation and made solution
impossible, or very improbable," Beard
At present there is approximately
540,000 to 550,000 in the SAF account,
according to Grady. Eagles statement
will mean that Student Government
could either continue operating on these
funds until they were spent or they could
transfer all funds to the
University-operated trust fund which will
replace SAF accounts.
According to Eagles, the new
disbursement system, which routes
Student Government requisitions through
the University accounting office, could
begin operating as soon as either of these
two moves are made.
University comptroller David M.
Johnson said Thursday there were no
hold-ups on beginning operation of the
new system as far as he is concerned.
"There's no problem at all," he said.
'The problem is communication at this
point. Mechanically there is no problem
at this time."
The decision to shift the disbursement
of activities funds from the SAF office in
the Carolina Union to the University
offices was made earlier this week.
At a meeting with administrative
officials, Student Government spokesmen
agreed to go along with the shift,

t Figures presented in a meeting of the
Publications Board Thursday indicate a
majority of students responding to a
recent poll on the Yackety Yack are in
favor of continuing the annual, but Board
members had doubts as to the validity of
The poll also indicated students are
almost evenly divided for and against a
subscription funding of the yearbook.
Large numbers of students responding
to the poll said the yearbook was relevant
to them in various ways.
Some 12,000 cards were printed. They
were to have been distributed during the
three days, when students were picking up
registration forms in Peabody Hall.
However, Mike Almond, chairman of
the, Pub Board subcommittee
investigating Yack funding, said the cards
were not distributed.
"As far as I am concerned," Almond
said, "the survey results are worthless.
Mr. .Mitchiner (Joe Mitchiner, Yack
editor) had 12,000 cards printed and got
only 1 ,800 replies. I myself checked to
see if the cards were being handed out
and they were not.
"Mr. Mitchener seemed to feel he
himself wanted to handle the way the
survey was done. Unfortunately it just
Responding to criticism, Mitchiner
said Thursday, "disregarding the fact that
almost no cooperation was received from
the registration personnel and I was not
prepared to staff the survey myself, the
unofficial referendum still served its
purpose in affording a minimum of
information so as to design the 1972
Mitchener continued, "In the three
days it took to tabulate the results, from
beginning to end the proportion relating
the figures from the various questions
remained relatively constant.
"Therefore my interest will be in these
proportions and percentages rather than
absolute numbers. Of the 12,000 cards
printed, I received about 1,600 to work
Steve ' Ayers, chairman of the
Publications Board, commented after the
Thursday meeting, "I agree with Mr.
Almond the survey was grossly
inadequate and in light of his tentative
recommendations it is not necessary to
put the issue before the student body
since the funding will be reorganized and
the book will not be done away with for
Almond said, "Actually the Yack
question doesn't need to go to the
student body. I will recommend that the
Publications Board put the Yack on a
subscription basis immediately. I will be
disappointed if we don't cut expenses
from student fees by 80 percent from
$52,000 to a maximum $10,000.
' "However, the Publication lioard will
not be influenced one way or the other
by a survey that never got off the ground.
The cards were printed and nothing came
of them. Some bad mistakes were made."
Exact figures from the poll were 1 ,343
to 327 in favor of maintaining a yearbook
at Carolina, and 877 to 702 subscribing
to a $6 to $10 yearbook.
Indicating when a yearbook was
relevant, students replied now (771), in
later years (925), as reference (672), for
sentiment (702) and for nothing (544).
Indicating when a yearbook was
relevant, 497 students indicated the Yack
should be financed by Student

The Yack has been the subject of
controversy over the last several months.
A movement is afoot to end or drastically
reduce SL funding of the book and to
convert it to a subscription operation.

fall semester. Almond will make a formal
report on the basis of those hearings in
the next several weeks. After his report,

In a winter wonderland?

That was the only way to get around the campus and
Chapel Hill Thursday as a white glaze of ice covered
everything the trees, cars, telephone and electric wires,
roads and sidewalks.
Although bruises and scrapes were common due to the
treacherous sheets of ice underfoot, only one major
accident was reported in the area a massive 10-car chain
Sleet and freezing rain began to fall in the Chapel Hill
area and across the state Wednesday afternoon. By late
Wednesday evening the entire outside world had been
transformed into a glazed, wintertime fairyland.
The trees were bowed under the weight of the ice
clinging to their limbs while the shrubs were bent low to
the ground as if some giant had squashed them.
Two persons were injured in the 10-car collision which
occurred on the Raleigh Road below the Institute of
Government shortly after 6 o'clock Wednesday evening.
The two, Deborah Pow and Gunde Rieger, were taken to
the North Carolina Memorial Hospital for treatment,
according to the Chapel Hill Police.
Both were . treated and released from the emergency
room of the hospital.
Other than damaged pride and dented fenders, the
broken limbs which were scattered across the campus were
the only visible signs on campus to attest to the power and
violence of the glassy blanket which bowed the trees and
Campus superintendent Larry Trammel reported the ice
had caused no major damage to campus buildings, trees or
plants. In fact, he viewed the broken limbs in quite a
"You might say it was a blessing in disguise. It is
Nature's way of trimming the trees breaking off the
weaker branches and limbs," he said.
Property damage in the town was also light according to
the police. The major cause of trouble due to the ice was
telephone and electric wires downed by the falling of the
heavy ice-clad limbs. Some sections of town were without
power for brief periods due to the fallen lines.
Campus maintenance crews began to work to clear the
campus sidewalks and roads of ice and fallen branches at
5:30 Thursday morning.
' Trammel reported some 45 men were working on
clearing away the ice on campus Thursday, aided by trucks
and a tractor-drawn sand-spreader.
The sand is being used to provide sufficient footing on
the sidewalks glazed with ice, instead of salt or any
chemical de-icers, he reported. Sand does not damage the
shrubs or plants as other de-icing agents would, nor does it
cause a problem in damaging the floors of campus buildings
when tracked in on the shoes of students and faculty.
apparently under the impression that the
present surplus in SAF accounts would
not be affected by the move and that the
change would be made late this week.

Belllo said early Thursday afternoon,
before Eagles made his statement, that he
was planning a meeting of 3ll student
body presidents on the six Consolidated
University campuses for early next week
in either Raleigh or Greensboro.
We're going to get together to see if
we can jointly take a stand on this," Bello
said. "We're going to see who is being
b3dly treated. Cathey Sterling (N.C.
State's student body president) is very
upset, there are still a lot of questions in
my mind, and Bill Coonan
(UNC-Asheville student body president)
is very upset. I haven't talked to other
presidents, but I'm sure they 11 be there."
Most objections to the switch in
disbursement systems have been based on
the fact that all requisitions will have to
go through the University accounting
office, a requirement which opponents of
the switch say will give the University
control over the expenditures of student
funds and in effect will give South

record to 10-6.
Carolina made more than its share of
errors, throwing the ball away 24 times,

defeat in ACC play.
Wuycik, in addition to claiming 12
rebounds, hit eight of 12 field goals. Karl

rebounds and scored 13 points, nine of

lThe "Publications Board Thursday
accepted the contract for a permanent
business manager of The Daily Tar Heel.
Bob Wilson, a graduate of UNC and
former business manager of the Tar Heel,
will serve as permanent business manager
of the campus newspaper through May
when the contract will be considered for
A void in the position was created
when Doug Jewell, former business
manager, resigned at the end of the fall
semester. "We thought it '.as essential to
have a full-time profess.'cital employe to
administer The Daily Tar Heel budget,
which is over $104,000," DTH Editor
Tom Gooding said recently.
Wilson, a 23-year-old native of
Wilmington, was graduated last June from
UNC with a B.S. degree in industrial
relations. While a student at Carolina, he
was president of Phi Kappa Sigma social
fraternity, a candidate for student body
president, chairman of the Audit Board,
associate justice of the Supreme Court
and a member of the Order of the Old
He attended the Emory University law
school last fall but dropped out for lack
of finances. He plans to return eventually.
"It became obvious last spring there
was a need for a permanent business
manager," Wilson said. He explained the
duties of a newspaper business manager
are much too complex for a student who
constantly has to worry about exams and
grades to devote his full time to the job.
Duties of the business manager include
billing and collecting all advertising
accounts, correspondence, keeping office
supplies, handling subscriptions and
general circulation, handling advertising
complaints, hire and fire staff members
and general supervision.
The new business manager said the
position will open the way to new growth
for the paper which was not possible
before. "It was self-evident the paper
could not handle the load," said Wilson.
He pointed to the growth of other
college newspapers and commented there

It was the fifth straight game in which
Davis exceeded 30 points against
Carolina. Smith did not need to point it
out, but he affirmed the obvious by
saying "he's just a super player."
Currie's finals on the Tar Heel network
comes Monday when the Tar Heels meet
N.C. State. It will take a lot of
superlatives to overshadow Carolina's
triumph over Wake in ils last
confrontation with Charlie Davis.
