Another proposal calling for
strengthening the state Board of Higher
Education and retaining the C onsolidate
University was endorsed Sunday hy a
group of UNC trustees.
The proposed changes, revealed t h : .
weekend by N.C. Rep. Ike Andrews
(D-Chatham) and State Senator John J.
Burney (D-New Hanover), were endorsed
by the University Committee on
Development and group of "interested
trustees", said Jake Froelkh, chairman of
The plan was presented to some 50
members of the General Assembly in
meetings organized by Andrews jnd
Burney. The legislators reception of the
plan was less than enthusiastic.
Much of the Sunday afternoon meeting
of the trustees was taken up with an
explanation of the plan by Andrews, a
member of the Trustees' Executive
Committee, according to Consolidated
University President William C. Friday.
"I he Ar.drews-Bumey plan calls for
retaining the present structure of
state-supported higher education, giving
the state Board of Higher Education veto
power over new programs.
The state board, to be renamed the
N.C. Commission of Higher Education,
would also be given advisory and budget
review powers over all 16 state
institutions. The six members of the
legislature presently on the state board
are not included in the proposed
Initially, the Governor would appoint
12 members of the 21-member
commission. Each future governor would
be able to appoint only two members of
the commission each year he is in the
A two-year moratorium oi the
establishment of new doctoral degree
programs is part of the Andrews-Burney
plan. President Friday endorsed such a
moratorium before a legislative
committee last week.

Senators and representatives present at
meetings this weekend did not share

Senator George Wood (D-Camden) told
the senators the new proposal "won't
accomplish a thing."
Wood also criticized the new plan for
not eliminating the current lobbying by
individual institutions in legislature for
special programs and monies. He added
that the proposed commission was not
protected from legislative tampering.
Several state representatives were
displeased with various aspects of the
Andrews-Burney plan, but were not as
opposed to it as Wood, a member of the
Senate Higher Education Committee.
Supporters of Gov. Scott's
restructuring proposals attacked the new
plan as being no remedy for the ills of
state higher education.
"What's new?" said Senator J. Russell
Kirby (D-Wilson). "I don't see anything
new or novel in this plan."

Rep. Perry Martin (D-Northhampton),
chairman of the House Higher Education
Committee, was even more sharply
critical of the Andrews-Burney plan.
"I don't know anything about this plan
except that he has a bill that Ike Andrews
prepared," Martin said. "1 don't think the
bill does anything worthwhile."
"The only support it has is from
people who don't want to do anything,"
he added. "I don't think anyone has given
the bill serious consideration."
Burney did not seem particularly
perturbed at the reception the proposal
"This shows that they are thinking
about the issue and that's what we want,"
The two-day meeting organized by
Burney in Wrightsville Beach attracted
some 26 state senators from the
approximately 40 invited.
Some 30 state representatives attended
the High Point conference sponsored by
Andrews. All 120 House members had
been invited to the Andrews meeting.

UNC Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson
favors restructuring state-supported
higher education but refuses to endorse
any specific proposal, reported the
Chapel Hill Weekly in their Sunday
He could not be reached for comment
by The Daily Tar Heel.
"There is one thing I would stress,"
Sitterson said, "and that's build from
strength. It's only common sense."
Sitterson says much of the strength of
the current Consolidated University
system is the strength of the Chapel Hill
campus, according to the story.
"The campus here is a University in its
own right: relatively complete,
self-contained and independent," he
The outstanding quality of both the
faculty and administration with whom
Sitterson has worked in the tast six years
as Chancellor are important facets of his
view on changes in the systems of higher
education, the paper said.
"The faculty at this University are of
much higher quality than at really any of
the other campuses in the state, with the
possible exception of North Carolina
State--but not really even that," he is
quoted as saying.
Sitterson also praised the current
Consolidated University administration.
"I know Bill Friday is a competent and
comprehending administrator," Sitterson
"You can't ask me to agree to go along
with an unknown quantity when I know
that what I've got has quality
administration," he added.
Sitterson's belief in the quality of the
Chapel Hill campus and of the General
Administration of the Consolidated
University might lead him to endorse the
Faculty Advisory Committee report
announced this week.
"I would think the best way to assure
quality would be to start from the
University," says Sitterson.

For Illinois Coach Bob Blackman. Saturday's
game against Carolina was the last gas station
before Death Valley.
The Illini play USC, Washington. Ohio State and
Michigan the next four weeks, and have no more
chance against them than they did in their 27-0
loss to the Tar Heels in Champaign's Memorial
Carolina simply ran over Illinois with all the
subtlety of a Brahma bull. Ike Oglesby. who
gained 167 yards on the ground and caught a
58-yard touchdown pass from Paul Miller, danced
around his slower opponents throughout the crisp
The Carolina defense completely frustrated
quarterback Mike Wells and finally sent him out of
the game, while repeatedly blunting the Illini
thrusts on third-down situations.
The trouncing will undoubtedly boost UNC into
national prominence, because Illinois is in the Big
Ten and the Big Ten is supposedly big time.
But the Tar Heels belong in the limelight.
Illinois took advantage of a poor Nick Vidnovic
punt and stood a half-yard away from a first down
on the UNC 37, early in the first quarter. But
inside linebacker John Anderson blasted through
and dropped John Wilson four yards behind the
Later in the period, the Heels were stopped and
punted to the Illini 28. where linebacker Octavus
Morgan was prepared to down the ball. So
prepared, in fact, that he didn't notice the ball
hitting him in the back.
UNC tackle Bob Pratt noticed, however, and fell
on it. Wingback Lew Jolley cut back for 13 yeards.
and six plays later Miller faked to Oglesby, fooling
the defense, and sneaked across for a touchdown
from the two.
In the second period, after linebacker Ricky
Packard killed a drive by deflecting a pass.
Carolina put together an lS-play drive that ended
w ith Ken Craven's 2 1 -yard Held goal.
Packard, at 183 pounds, then joined John
Bunting to nail Wilson at the Carolina 2 to
preserve the 10-0 halftime lead.
The most important development of the second
quarter. as it turned out. were two
innocent-looking hook patterns run by right end
John Cowell. On both occasions. Illinois
double-covered him, and the Carolina coaches
noticed it upstairs.
On third-and-five at the Carolina 42, Miller
dropped back. Cowell hooked again, and the Illini
reacted again. So Oglesby sauntered out of the
backfield, "ran under" Miller's pass on the Illinois
35, and presumably could have run to Indianapolis
without being touched.
The play killed Illinois chances, and the rest of
the game was a succession of time-killing UNC
drives, another Craven field goal, and a three-yard
Oglesby blast for the last touchdown.
The scoring run came after Ike's 24-yard
scamper on a pitchout play.
For Blackman and the crowd of 4l.3Ml (in a
71.000-seat stadium) it was another scoreless
week. That has a different connotation for UNC
