Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson is
expected to approve a new Student
Stores. badL check;, policy passed
unanimously by the Student Stores
Advisory Committee Wednesday.
Committee Chairman J.A. Branch,
executive director of Auxiliary
Enterprises and Services, said he
anticipates a prompt acceptance of the
new policy by the Chancellor.
1 Branch was quick to point out that
because of a conference with the
Chancellor by two of the committee's
student members, Steve LaTour and
Gerry Cohen, a meeting to review the
policy was held. He added the new policy
was almost entirely formulated by Cohen.
According to the new policy, a first
notice of a bad check will be sent by U.S.
postage after the second return of the
check by the bank. After seven days, if
there have been no provisions for
payment, a second notice will be sent by

How much do students care about fraternities on the UNC
A freshman questionnaire was recently distributed which
provides an insight to the answer to this question.
A total of 1 83 forms were distributed and of these only 49
were returned. A conclusion that freshmen are generally
apathetic towards fraternities could be drawn.
It must be noted that the forms were handed out during
exams' and thus the students may not have had any time to
devote to them. However, some specific conclusions may be
drawn is that many freshmen (50 of the responses) content

comments portrayed fraternities as "plastic." Members were
envisioned as "pseudo-intellectuals" on "ego-trips."
There are ego-trippers in fraternities, but this isn't any
different than society in general. Perhaps the rationale behind
this is that if one is already exposed to this type of individual
in larger society why should one join a supposed microcosm of
that society. '
This would only bring the individual into closer contact
with the ego-trippers, ets. The rationale is not! totally
erroneous, but it is rather presumptuous for one to categorize
people before he has sufficient exposure to them.
Fraternities are progressing but the changes are still not
sufficient. The apparent unwillingness of the majority of
fraternities to change is evidenced by a decline of 1.7 percent
of the total number of undergraduate men who are in

has been taken with the - hiring of a
