Vol. 80, No. 25 Wednesday, September 29, 1971 Founded February 23. 1S93 j..r. pi -71 T Jenkins say .buis tax by Jessica Hanchar Staff Writer The Scott Residence College Senate has passed a resolution "flitly opposing the proposed student referendum to subsidi7e a campus bus system with a room rent increase. The resolution urged its student legislators to oppose the referendum. The senate also affirmed its desire to be considered as a part of South Campus for purposes of representation on the proposed student bus coordinating hoard. "Although t fie bus system is a necessity, the senate felt 10 cents a ride was adequate," said Allen Keep, governor of the college. "Scott residents shouldn't be made to pay an additional cost because we don't get that much use from it," he added. Reep explained, "By the time the bus gets to Scott College (Avery, Parker and Teague dorrns), the bus is already full, especially on rainy days, so they go ahead and walk." The senate objected to being placed as part of North Campus in the bill because it felt its problems are not similar to those in North Campus, Reep said. The proposed referendum specifies that a $5 per semester increase in room rent be charged to dormitory residents, to subsidize the bus system. A pass for unlimited use of the bus system may also be bought for the same price. People not in dormitories and not buying passes could still ride for 10 cents. Both O'Neal and Reep indicated student opinion is running against the proposed referendum. "There is a great deal of resentment against the bill in the residence colleges because people living in fraternities, sororities and off-campus can just pay the standard dime and get the benefits of a tremendously improved bus system," said Mike O'Neal, student legislator from Scott and sponsor of the resolutions. "If Clayton Woodard (author of the bill) can't guarantee the routes will be changed to something favorable to North Campus, the referendum won't pass," Reep commented. "I don't think King's legislators will vote for it," said Sheila Wall, governor of King Residence College. "They feel South Campus gets most of the use of the bus system so it should get most of the burden of paying for it." Jim Wellons, governor of Morehead Residence College, could not comment on his college's opinion since the bill has not been brought up in the senate.

GPSF Senate approved upon the request of GPSF President Daisy Junge the formation of two committees -one to work on the wording and intent of a petition for the referendum and one to plan the best method of canvassing the campus for student support. For GPSF' to attain recognition as an organization independent from the undergraduate student government, the UNC Student Constitution must be amended. There are currently two established procedures for amending the constitution: calling a referendum by a two-thirds vote of Student Legislature, and calling a referendum after receiving a petition signed by 10 percent of the student body. GPSF has attempted to establish a separate graduate government for the last year and a half. They are currently recognized only as a semi-independent governing agency.

No action was taken on the amendments and they died in committee. According to Jim Becker, senate presiding officer, the graduate students will also resubmit these amendments. 'We hope to resubmit these amendments within the next two weeks," Becker said. "We still want Student Legislature to consider them because we feel any amendments that will substantially alter student government should be the result of cooperation between graduate and undergraduate students."

But there is no real competition between them. Bob Wallace, one of Harmony's owners, said. "All the stores around here are doing okay. There's plenty of business to go around. "After all. Byrd's. Winn Dixie and A&P are close together. If we got one percent of the business they do, we'd be sold out in a minute. "We cooperate." Wallace said.

(Staff photo by Cliff Kolovson) Becker said if GPSF is forced to initiate a petition, then the changes made will be only those which appeal to graduate students." "We would regret such a step and hope it will not be necessary," he said. "However, if need be, we will circulate a petition and call for a referendum before the end of this semester." Miss Junge said GPSF is determined to press on for full and final recognition as a separate government. In a letter of July 1, Chancellor J.

"We need recognition and its corollary of equitable funding. We shall then be in that much better a position to work on the substantive issues facing graduate and professional students.

Jenkins said. He said the formula should abolish "second class instruction to any gToup." and urged the same level of educational quality in all state-supported schools. '"Whenever a program or course is offered at two or more institutions it should be supported in such a way that a student taking that program at any state institution has an equal chance for quality education," Jenkins said. Jenkins said he thought the "goal of higher education in North Carolina should be to educate as many people as possible. The structure of higher education should further this goat. "The idea of a pyramid ofdacjlion, with the red carpet treatment at one or two universities and a descending scale down to subsistence level at the community college, is undemocratic." he added. Jenkins said the excellence of education at any institution should not be dropped but should be extended instead. He added : "It is simply to say that much of the competition over the distribution f funds would end if the N.C. General Assembly adopted a formula which assures that the same kind of instruction receives the same public support in every state institution. Jenkins said he thinks his proposed formula should provide for allocations to institutions tor new programs, but the presidents and chancellors of the institution should be responsible for distributing these fund-;. "The presidents and chancellors of institutions of higher education in North Carolina are well paid and they should not be relegated to the role of puppets,"" the university president said. ""Let those responsible persons in eich institution." he added. "have the authority to choose the courses of action or the alternatives to accomplish the stated objectives and fix upon them the responsibility for choosirg the best course of action." Asked if he supported Gov. Bob Scott's proposals for restructuring higher education.
