Cathey this morning on several Student Government questions, including the recently discontinued carpet sales. Carpet sales were sponsored by Student Government last week before the administration notified Stallings' office the sales violated a Board of Trustees ruling. A letter from Cathey to Stallings said, in part, "no canvassing, selling or soliciting by any person, firm or corporation shall be permitted in the dormitories or other buildings or on the campus and grounds" of the University without approval and supervision of the administration. r I u l mr" 1 ; A -r Riding a skateboard takes a lot of talent.

The attending physician at Memorial Hospital noted that Arnold's illness "is a very strange one. but very serious. " Heat stroke ;s a condition m which the body mechanism controlling body temperature becomes defective," the physician said. "The temperature then shoots very, very high, often with complications resulting." Asked if Arnold's temperature had gone as high as 108 degrees, he said, 'That's very close." The physician denied rumors that Arnold had additional' suffered a cardiac arrest, but noted there had been "disturbances" in that region. Officially, Memorial Hospital had Arnold's condition listed as "critical and unstable." o .bo 1 he board was formed last July shortly after Dr. James A. Taylor was named director of Student Health Services. It consists of five students, four faculty members and an administrator. In a letter to board members, Sitterson said the group is "to initiate, together with the director, and to recommend policies governing Student Health Services operations" and "to advise upon innovative changes." Stallings said the letter's tone indicates to confer af ft "This is an unfortunate interpretation of the selling policy of the University," said Stallings last Friday. "We want to check into all the legalities of the situation and get an independent ruling. "I don't doubt Cathey s sincerity, but this does not mean I agree with him," Stallings continued. "I personally doubt the sale is illegal." Stallings will meet with his presidential advisors Thursday afternoon to decide what further action should be taken. Stallings and Cathey will also confer on several student appointments to the University's student, faculty and administrative committees 1 I c "nT ' if- "1 kn4.t4 .k . r m' c - v - T n m m 1 ' A hospital spokesman, terms, saying usually good", 'fa:r', cr somewhat worse than p' Cr:::. about as bad as we Ls: them."

There was n -.thir.2 ur.u-: i! IX I if! t Wednesday, September 8, 1971 the board will be more of an advisory group than an administrative one. Sitterson was quoted in the July 1 1 issue of the Chapel Hill Weekly as saying the board would "formulate, together with the director, policies governing Student Health Services" and "review and approve innovative changes." "Essentially, the board has been changed since July from a group making changes to a group that advises changes," Stallings said. Sitterson said Tuesday every administrative board at the University "works in concert with an administrative officer" an; the health services board "will thrash things out with the director." "1 hope this board will ensure that we have the best Student Health Services possible," Sitterson said. "I hope the board will attempt to keep the infirmary attuned to the students" needs." Sitterson said he hopes the board will seek ideas from students about changes in the infirmary. The board will also aid in planning a new $2,400,000 infirmary complex which has been approved by the N.C. General Assembly, Sitterson added. Stallings said, "It seems to me with the problems we have had with the Student Health Services in the past, we should have a strong administrative board." "Students should help in making decisions," he added. "When a board such as this is relegated to an advisory group, you take away much of the prestige and power to gain changes." Stallings said he has requested a meeting with Sitterson to discuss the new board. "I would rather get changes in the infirmary off to a good start than to have tr- i-j;le with it all year lono " he said.

Says Robert Kepner NC Overcrowding in University housing has eased slightly since semester opening, reports Robert Kepner, director of Residence Life. The excess number of students decreased from 540 during Orientation to ASS on Sept. 2, the first day of classes. Kepner said. "This drop has reduced the number of students in group living situations converted social lounges, study areas, etc.," he explained. the housing situation has inproved such that Kepner believes "nobody will be living in these group situations" in the relatively near future.

This Chapel Hill lad sat on Defendant in tow cage T not by BUI Lovin Srjjf Writtr A conviction appeal for illegally towing a parked car may never go back to court, savs Robert Oakes. a defendant in the case. This would mean the state does not consider the ca-e important enough to prosecute the appeal. In Hillsborough District Court last week. Oakes, who is manager of Cedar Court Apartments, and Bill Burch. owner of Burch's Auto Servicenter. were found guilty of taking a motor vehicle "without intent to steal." Burch, under Oakes' direction, allegedly towed a car belonging to Rick Gibbs, former UNC student living m Chapel Hill. Gibbs" car was parked in the driveway o: Cedar Court while he was visiting friends across the street from the jpartment complex. Gibbs complained to the magistrate in date wnen group living problems would be solved. Students moved from group situations have been housed in normal double rooms or m recently converted triple rooms. Beds reserved for students who dropped out before the opening of classes or failed to notify the University they would not attend were the source of approximately 80 vacancies. "A lot of people chose not to come to school for a variety of personal reasons," Kepner said. The breakdown by six of the overcrowding situation shows honsing Billv Arnold pros Chapel Hill and a warrant was issued under N.C. statute 20-105. The statute, known as the "joy riding" law, makes taking a vehicle to deprive the owner of use but without intent to steal a misdemeanor. Gibbs said "there was no sign saying parking was illegal and I wasn't blocking the driveway." Oakes, foreman of the Orange County Grand Jury, said he conferred with a judge and the county solicitor in Hillborough Tuesday. Oakes said he questioned the legality of his Grand Jury service while the appeal was pending. "The judge told me I was well within my rights." said Oakes in a telephone interview Tuesday afternoon. "I think, from what they told me, the whole thing will blow over," he said. If the state does not prosecute the appeal, the case would officially be termed "no! pros" meaning "no 5yXu f illi -ki situation improve approximately equal decreases for men and women. At the opening of school, approximately 330 excess men were living in dorms. These caused an overcrowded situation for a total of some S60 men. Approximately 279 excess men are still m dorms, with about 00 men remaining in overcrowded situations. Women's dormitories began the year with 210 women in excess of normal capacity, causing crowded rooms for apporximately 5-40 women.

'The extent of the crowding is such that by the beginning of the spring semester, there will be no problem," he said, said. Kepner also expects more dormitory openings during this first full week of classes. The residence hall staff made a . complete roster check at the beginning of this week to aid in alleviating overcrowding, Kepner said. But until the end of this semester, Kepner sees no real chance for overcrowding in dormitories to be completely alleviated.
