"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 ." during the past few days. He added there has been no substantial change in Arnold's overall condition. The physician sjid Arnold lias suffered "many organ complications and now has some infection in his lungs. He's being treated for all of these." 'Things don't look good," Dr. Finn added, "but then they never have. The longer he survives, however, the better his chances." Arnold is a sophomore from Staten Island.

"The present bus system is controlled to a great extent by the Motor Vehicles i'und which subsidizes part of the present system," he added. "We have to operate it ourselves before it can tie improved." Woodard would like the bus system to eventually extend into full campus service and include Fatgate Shopping (nter and Universit.. parking lots. "Faculty, staff and commuters could park on the outskirts of town and ride to campus." he said . Bailey Cobbs. student transportation commissioner, pointed out the 53.50 room rent raise would onb. v.ii-sdize the present bus system. T xp.indina present system would have to come from a higher fee or high profits." he said. "Profits would come from overcrowded buses or from otf-campus riders." he noted. Cobbs approved of the bill. "It seems like the best way to get a belter bus system," he said. "This is the only alternative way." A committee of students, faculty and administrators would supervise the bus system, establish routes and administer all money collected. The resolution supporting the room rent raise, drawn up by Miller, v. as passed unanimously. "This is the type of thing RCF should be doing." commented Steve Saunders, chairman of RCF. "We should definitely take a stand on this issue." The bill will be brought up before SL"s Finance Committee next Wednesday. If approved, it will go to the SI. floor next week.

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 International. 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 Governor's cabinet. "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," Aycock explained. 1 s. .itvr ) 1 f i . r - . . f I aj. .V"t-f ' 7a,'At. j UNC students Jong Duk Lee (I.) and Sun Hyuk Kim chose a nice spot for their thinking -- the law n of Mitchell Hall worked ardouslv Thursday on an equation.
