Calling for a major overhaul in the
U.S. court systems, Bayh summarized the
developments which have outmoded
today's system of jurisprudence in a
speech at Duke's Page Auditorium.
The Indiana Democrat arrived three
hours late because of weather conditions
and spoke less than half an hour. The
auditorium was almost filled at 8 p.m.
when the speech was scheduled to begin,
and most stayed until Bayh arrived.
Bayh attributed crime increase and
loss of freedoms to various programs
initiated under the guise of protection.
He specifically attacked a detention
program for repeat offenders that may be
enacted in Washington, D.C. This would
allow incarceration of criminals for 60
Bayh also denounced massive spying
efforts on private individuals. 'These

Recidivism is presently 70 percent in

But Warren told the lawmakers he
favored control over both budget and
program for a reorganized board.
Jones told the meeting the two board
halves of his proposal could meet jointly
to develop a budget for the entire system.
Jones, like a host of speakers, said he
felt individual boards should be
maintained for the internal operation of
the 16 state-supported schools.
Warren continued, "You've got to give
that agency certain authority. Some of
the authority they haven't had that's
essential is control over programs."

The Student Food Service Commission
planned Thursday an open forum for
students to discuss complaints with
Servomation-Mathias, Inc., the campus
The forum will be held October 6 at
the Student Union.
Student Body President Joe Stallings,
speaking at the first meeting of the
commission, said, "I suggest an open
forum type of meeting for students to get
problems out of their systems."
He outlined two main reasons for
setting up the food commission and open
forum. "A stigma is attached to any food
service on campus because of the
disadvantage of a bad history of campus
food services," he said.
"Secondly, when dealing with a food
service, you are dealing directly with
every student that comes through the
doors," he added. "This is different from
other problems which affect only
segments of students indirectly."
The commission would act as a
student liaison to Robert Greer, director
of Servomation at UNC, Stallings said.
Greer, a non-voting member of the
commission, explained the present
services and future plans of the company.
Servomation operates Chase Cafeteria, a
ma state law,
Morgan, upon Robinson's inquiry defined
dormitory rooms as secondary residences.
This brings up the question of whether
liquor could be allowed in the dorms with
the owner's permission and, therefore,
who is the owner of the dormitory
On this question, council members
agreed that if the Administrative Council
approved their recommendation, the
"owner's permission" would be granted
because the trustees, the state or whoever
could be called the owner.
The question of non-residential areas
was more vague.
"Can you carry beer and liquor in the
hallways? What about social lounges,
student unions, dining halss, and snack
bars," council members asked.
Most council members agreed the
chancellor should be allowed to designate
these areas. Student members, however,
were quick to point out need for
consultation with students before the
chancellor made his decisions.
All suggestions were taken down by
Robinson who promised to make another
proposal draft and mail it to the members
within the next week.
If there are no major objections to the
proposal, it will be submitted to the
