The establishment of toll-free

The booklet's title came from Louis
Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland."
The booklets were produced at a cost
of $2,000. The Student Health Service
secured funds through a University grant.
The booklet's final draft, completed
this summer, will be distributed free to

sororities on Monday. They will be

$1,532,207 and require additional

RALEIGH - Members of the State
Senate and House Higher Education
Committees agreed Thursday to begin
public hearings Sept. 13 on various
proposals for restructuring higher
education in N'.C.
The agreement came during a
two-hour meeting at the legislative
Building in Raleigh. House Committee
Chairman Rep. Perry Martin
(D-N'orthampton) said the committees
would "try to dispose of all public
hearings that week whether it takes to
Tuesday or Thursday."
He said after the hearings have

said Stallings. "We want to check into all

Carpet sales were going extremely
well, according to Wilson. His office
asked Carpet Outlet, a Durham firm, to
order more carpet remnants from its state
stores rather than wait for the mill to
send an order.
The carpets were delivered to Durham
"They're going to have to haul them
all back to their stores now," said Wilson.
"The real disappointment is there was
such an unexpected demand for the
carpets," he added. "Many people were
turned away this afternoon, cither in
person or on the phone."
"This is a service many students
obviously wanted," said Stallings. "We
have been quelled in our efforts to
provide this service. I hope it's only
"I don't doubt Cathey's sincerity, but
this does not mean I agree with him."
Stallings commented. "I personally doubt

The Student Services Commission
