RALEIGH, N.C.-College students got
a vote of confidence Tuesday as the

the state's public universities.
Joe Stallings, president of the student

pleasing." He added "in answer from

The Student Health and Welfare
Committee (SHWC) will hold a work
session tonight to discuss the future
direction and development of student
health service on campus.
The session, at 7:30 p.m. in Suite C of
the Carolina Union, is open to the public.
SHWC members will meet with Dr.
John Cassel, head of the Dept. of
Epidemiology; Dr. Donald Madison,
member of the Health Services Research
Center; Dr. John Thompson, head of the
Oberlin Health Services and member of
the Community Mental Health Division; a
physician from the Infirmary and a
member of the Health Education Dept.
Experts in the fields of medical care,
psychiatric counseling, environment,
health education and research and
development have been invited to attend.
A health service expert has been asked to
give an overview of SHWC proposals in
relation to development of health services

"The Independence and integrity of
Student Government has been questioned
on this issue," Stallings charged. "We are
presently getting our money in block
amounts, but I fear further restrictions
will be placed on student fees."
The fear felt by most Student
Government and Student Legislature
members, they say, is that the present
approval of block grants will not
continue. ' -
Under block grants, a student
organization can requisition a check from
its funds in the University Truest Fund
Office without itemizing each specific

aimed at giving them less. -
The first amendment, proposed by
Sen. Hamilton Horton (R-Forsyth) would
have made the student government
presidents members of the Executive
Committee of the Board of Trustees as
well as the board itself. Horton said this
would be the only way to insure the
students had a vote where it counts."
The amendment failed however when
several senators pointed out that the
Executive Committee members are
elected from the membership of the
overall Board of Trustees. Some senators
also argued that Horton 's amendment
would make six of the 1 5 members of the
Executive Committee of the Board at the
University of North Carolina students.
The second amendment proposed
Tuesday would have allowed student
government presidents to sit on the Board
of Trustees but not to vote. Sen. J. Ollie

"We want these people who are
experts in their 'fields to expound on,
criticize and make suggestions concerning
the proposals made by the SHWC in its
third report," Comstock said. -
Comstock said he considers the open
working session as another step towards
the development of attainable; services
that will fill students' special needs.
In its third report, the SHWC proposed
an organizational structure for the
Student Health Service. The structure is a
corporate bureaucracy, incorporated as a
free standing organization. It would
include a board of directors, an executive
director, a liveability office, -illness

The controversy began when the
University changed the student fees
policy from placing fees in the Student
Activities Office to a University trust
fund in January.
"Requisitions for expenditures from
the accounts . . . will be required," stated
a release from Joseph C. Eagles, vice
chancellor of finance, on January 29,

Jim Hornstein, student director of
Project Uplift and the Committee for the
Advancement of Minority and
-Disadvantaged Students (AMDS), has
asked the University to establish a
student recruiting office within the Office
of Undergraduate Admissions.
'This office would be staffed by
students and permanently funded by
both students and the administration,"
His request came after the 1971-72
" Student Legislature (SL) failed to allocate
any funds for the operation of Project
Uplift and AMDS, an organization
designed to recruit disadvantaged high
school students into college.
Hornstein indicated the $3,900
appropriation in this year's SL budget
provided more than half of the $7,000
needed each year by AMDS.
Other - financial - sources tated f by
Hornstein for 1970-71 Project Uplift
operations include the Chancellor's
Discretionary Fund, which gave $1,000 as
did the Falk Foundation. '
The University faculty contributed
and additional $1,200 bringing donations
and grants to a total of $7,100. This total
provides a slim margin of $100 over the
predicted annual budget.
The Project Uplift director said his
organization was unable to lobby for
reinstatement of SL funds because all
available time was needed to prepare for

are participating in the 1971 AMDS

Commenting on a statement made in
The Daily Tar Heel by Robert Grady, SL ,

said it was not true that AMDS duplicates
