reached no final decisions Wednesday on
proposed changes in its Veer, wine' and

to allow students of legal age to possess

Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson
endorsed Wednesday expansion of the
Consolidated University system as the
b e s t means of restructuring
state-supported higher education.
In a letter to the editor of The Chapel
Hill Weekly, Sitterson clarified
misconceptions of his position on
deconsolidation of the University
resulting from a Weekly story.
The Weekly reported last Sunday
Sitterson favored a change in the
administrative structure of state higher
education. The story did not elaborate on
what type of structure the chancellor

Thursday, September 23, 1971
In the Wednesday statement. Sitterson
said the needs of education in the state
can best be served by '"building from
strength." he called for the extension of
the Consolidated system statewide.
He suggested the General Assembly
give such an expanded system new
"And most importantly," he
explained, "(the legislature must give) the
enlarged system the necessary budget and
educational program powers.'
The question of local representation
on the UNC Board of Trustees and local
policy decisions was also faced by
Sitterson. He asked for representation on
the Board of Trustees from each of the
newly acquired car ipu-cs.
Consolidated University President
William C. Friday, Duke University
President Terry Sanford and former
Chape! Hill Chancellor WUliam B. Aycoek
were among the witnesses before the
committee in the first week of hearings.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported
Wednesday that opposition to a central
governing board for all the state's
universities is weakening within the Board
of Trustees' Executive Committee.
The story said several members of the
committee urged the group to drop its
opposition to the Scott plan.
A desire to share in shaping of a plan
which has a greater chance of passing the
General Assembly during its special
session is the reason given for this change
of some trustees.
Another factor in the apparent shift in
the position of some trustees, the Journal
said, was that the plan proposed by Sen.
John J. Burney (P-New Hanover) and
Rep. Ike Andrews (D-Chatham) has not
gained many advocates.
A group of trustees, including most of
the Executive Committee, endorsed the

The establishment of subcommittees
to serve as local governing boards for each
campus was also proposed by the
chancellor. Such subcommittees would
have "responsibility for local campus

powers clearly defined by the governing
Sitterson made several points in the
letter in support of his proposal.
"Historically, in multi-campus
university systems...the original
campus. ..was understandably the source
of the educational strength of the
system," he said.
He emphasized that University centers
in Chapel Hill, Madison. Wis., and
Berkely, Cal. and others had provided the
means of improvement of the other
Andrews- Burney plan in a special
meeting in Chapel Hill last Sunday.
In a news conference in Charlotte
Tuesday, Scott said he is increasingly
optimistic about his plans to reorganize
state-supported higher education.
The Winston-Salem Journal quoted
Scott as saying he was more optimistic
than he was two weeks ago about the
possibilities for a strong governing board
for all state universities.

Scott claimed the new plan did not
accomplish his objective of having only
one voice speak for all of N.C. higher
Protection for rights of the minorities
in the state system was also a topic
mentioned by the governor.

Sitterson's restructuring plan is very
similar to that proposed by the
Chancellor's Faculty Advisory
loiT.mittee. The advisory group's position
was revealed Sept. 10 at the first General
Faculty meeting of the year by Dr. Dan
Okun, faculty chairman.
The faculty group called for bringing
two or three regional universities into the
Consolidated system each year until all
the institutions were contained within the
University. It also proposed diversifying
the membership of the Board of Trustees
and giving it new powers.
"The new board should have the
power to determine programs, budgets,
personnel and property practices within
component units," the group said.
Sitterson's proposed restructuring is
not in agreement with the University
Board of Trustees' action last Sunday
endorsing the Andrews-Burney plan.
The trustees ag.ceu with the proposal
put forth by two N.C. legislators. Sen.
John J. Burney (D-New Hanover) and
Rep. Ike Andrews (D-Chatham). This
plan calls for strengthening the State
Board of Higher Education and retention
of the present Consolidated University.

An amended version of a bill calling
for a referendum on student financial
support for a University and town bus
service comes to the floor of Student
The bill, sponsored by Representative
Clayton Woodard. states that an October
5 referendum would allow students in
University housing to accept or reject a
S5 increase in room rent to subsidize an
expanded bus system.
"The S5 increase would provide bus
service around the entire campus as well
as to Eastgate Shopping Center and
outlying parking areas," Woodard said.
He said the proposed increase would
provide S7 1,000 in revenue for the bus
system. Students Living in University
housing and their spouses would be able
to ride the buses free.
In addition, off-campus students,
faculty and staff members would be able
to purchase a pass to ride the buses for
S5. Woodard had no estimate of the
bat these quaJicatsor.
