"The student-subsidized bus system
would equalize living conditions in North
and South Campus." said Charlie Miller,
governor of James Residence College. "It
would draw South Campus students to
North Campus and lessen the separation
of the two campuses."
Sheila Wall, governor of King
Residence College, agreed, "i here is an
extreme alienation between the two
campuses that the free has system would
lessen," she said.
"I question if North Campus would
vote for the raise." Joe Crier, governor of
Morrison Residence College, pointed out.
"I'm afraid they might cancel the South
Campus vote for it ."

"The present bus system is controlled

Woodard would like the bus system to
eventually extend into full campus service

Ay cock's plan calls for a strong
governing board with budget and program
on:r .I over all 16 institutions of higher
education, with boards of trustees for
eah campus and desconsolidation of the
University system .
"Higher education is the only area in
ta:e government where the General
Assembly still makes specific
appropriations for specific uses." he said
m an interview following his testimony.
"The General Assembly delegates that
authority to someone more
knowledgeable in every other area of
state finances," he added.
Aycock called for making each head
the "president" of his campus.
"I said that so there wouldn't be any
doubt - President Friday could just move
in to be head of the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill," he explained.
The proposed restructuring plan, third
proposed to the Committee this week,
received a good reception from the
legislators, according to United Press
The joint chairmen of the committee
were not enthusiastic about the proposal
but did believe a strong governing board
would 'win support from the entire
corn mi t tee.
Aycock called for establishment of a
Commissioner of Higher Education to
head the central state board and join ghe
"This full-time official would be the
spokesman for the business of higher
education in North Carolina," he said in a
wire i e port.
Aycock said following the hearing he
felt President Friday might decide to seek
the Commissioner post. The provision for
Friday to take over the head of Chapel
Hill campus was not designed to preclude
a try for the position, he said.
"Nobody would be out of a job under
my proposal - not even any trustee,"
