Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson refused
to meet Wednesday with Student Body,
President Joe Stallings on the issue of
graduate student government if Student
Government attorney John Brooks was
present at the meeting.
"It is unfortunate the Chancellor was
unable to meet with John Brooks and
myself today on the graduate student
situation," Stallings said.
"It is my feeling, however, that John
Brooks should accompany me in any
discussion concerning graduate students

The reason behind the refusal,
according to Student Body President Joe
Stallings, was "no substantiating

"Apparently, we are back to an item

Stallings said. 'This makes the fourth

The University Traffic and Parking
Committee approved Wednesday a
request that Odum and Victory Villages,
be zoned for parking.
The recommendation was presented in
the form of a petition by Gerd Bartsch,
mayor of the villages.
The petition said in part that the
signers were resolved that "parking areas
in Odum and Victory Villages be zoned
and that the "T" sticker be replaced with
an "M" sticker ("M" for married student

University employes to keep their A-l
and A-2 parking stickers in addition to
the "M" sticker was also approved.
A visitors parking area was also
established by a commitee vote of 10-0.
"We needed the zone because of
parking problems we had with our
unlimited parking spaces," Bartsch said.
'Too many unregistered cars were taking
up the villagers' spaces.
'This meant that we could not park in
front of our houses," he said. 'This
wasinconvenient especially for wives with
groceries and small children. On many
occasions, they are forced to walk a block
or more to get to their house."
The vote marked the end of the
one-and-a-half year fight by the villagers.
A similar recommendation was made Oct.
"We had wanted something to be done
for a long time," Bartsch said. 'The

Chancellor Sitterson could not be
reached for comment.
The meeting over which the problems
arose was to have included Sitterson;
Stallings; Walter Baggett, head of the
Graduate and Professional Student
Federation (GPSF); Dr. Claiborne Jones,
assistant to Sitterson; and Dean of
Student Affairs CO. Cathey.
The purpose of the meeting, according

In the Morehead College request, the
expenses were listed as "social and other
expenses outstanding and to be incurred
by the houses of Morehead Residence
College during the spring semester,
1971," and listed each dorm in the
college and its expense sum.
The system apparently required by the
trust fund office requires itemized
expenses, such as "refreshments."
"Eighteen of these block requests have
gone through since the change in
January," stated Steve Saunders, former
governor of Morehead and present
chairman of Residence College
Federation. "In the past week they have
turned down nine that were no different

continued since January 28 when the
administration announced that student
organizations were to requisition funds
from the Trust Fund Office on an
item-by-item basis. Previously, the
organizations requisitioned funds directly
from the Student Activities Fund Office.
On February 19, March 4 and March
8, the Trust Fund Office honored block
requests from the Daily Tar Heel,
Carolina Union and Student Government.
Several residence colleges and dorms
sent similar block requisitions on April 8
to the trust fund office. Five days later,
on April 13, all the requests were refused.
"It took them five days to decide what
to do with the requests," charged Cam
West, special assistant to Stallings. .
The Trust Fund Office suggested that

requirements. They added,' "We were
mistaken in allowing the other (three)
similar block requests previously
submitted to be processed."
The recent action concerning
Morehead College "is just one more of
the many inconsistencies in the whole
matter," charged Saunders.
"It makes us mad and annoyed how
they turned down the request under
those pretenses," added Don Dale,
treasurer of the Residence College

In answer to the most recent change,
Stallings said, It seems that once again

was no previous notice give to the
Student Activity Fund Office advising it
of the change. .

Four persons, including incumbent
Mayor Howard Lee and two UNC
students, have filed as candidates for
mayor of Chapel Hill.
The most recent candidate, John W.
(Jack) Maultsby, co-owner and operator
of the Farm House restaurant, filed just a
few minutes before deadline Friday.
Lee, the first black man to be elected
mayor of a predominantly white southern
town since Reconstruction, is seeking his

Shortly after his call to South
Building, Stallings' office received a call
from Jones' secretary. When Stallings
returned the call, he was told that the
permission for Brooks to attend the
meeting could come only from Sitterson.
Stallings said Sitterson was unavailable
at the time. -
Upon contact with Sitterson Stallings
reported, the Chancellor requested the
meeting be a "friendly, informal" one. He
further said no decisions would be made
at the meeting.
Stallings replied he wished to have
Brooks present to provide the necessary
continuity from the SG position.
According to Stallings, Sitterson said
he felt the presence of the attorney
would "before the fact, suggest there was
to be conflict over the issue."
"I don't want any conflict over the
issue," Sitterson reportedly replied.
The exchange between the Chancellor
and Stallings then turned to the actual
issue of the meeting itself.
Stallings said Sitterson asked if he
would not meet without the lawyer, to
which the SG president answered that on
the graduate student issue, he would not.
Stallings reported he told the
Chancellor he (Stallings) was more than
willing to talk on the issue.
Following another brief conversation
in which it became obvious that Stallings
would not attend the meeting held
Wednesday, Stallings reported, Sitterson
said the Administration would find a
lawyer to represent it -at consultations
before another meeting was held.
'According to Baggett, Sitterson did
hold the meeting although its purpose
was somewhat changed by the events.
Baggett said he presented to the
Chancellor and the other administrators
at the meeting his side of the separation
of the graduate students from the present
Student Government.- "But the
Chancellor did not hear the SG side,"
According to Baggett Sitterson said
that there would be another meeting, but
at the next meeting the Administration
would have a lawyer present to represent
