Arnold, a junior from Staten Island, N.Y., suffered heat stroke while running wind sprints at the end of practice Sept. 6. He died 15 days later of the heat stroke and its a ccom pany ii complications. The committee, reporting the findings of its two-week study to the Faculty Council, reconstructed events during the Sept. 6 practice and replied to rumors which had fluorished after the incident.

The annual report of the standing faculty committee on University Ceiling collapses in Old West dorm by William March Staff Writer The entire ceiling of a room in Old West dormitory caved in Friday - two weeks after one of the room's residents had reported to the University the ceiling was sagging, the resident said. Dan Biddell, a senior living in the room, said, "An electrician was working in the room, and when he took two little screws out of the light fixture, the entire ceiling started crumbling." The electrician escaped from the room, and no one was injured. "1 had just walked out of the room five minutes earlier," Biddell said. He said his roomate, Steve Calos. had left to go home for the weekend. Heels face Tulane today in Kenan Stadium by Mark Whicker Spurts Editor "We're no 1-3 ball club." warns Tulane sports information director Bill Curl. "We've had trouble putting it together, but we're getting ready to explode." Injuries, uicompletions. tumroies. penalties - all have served to make the Green Wave 1 -3 and underdogs to Carolina today at 1:30 p.m. in Kenan Stadiur . The Carolina loss at Tulane last year merely aggravates the situation. With an injured defensive backfield, the Tar Heels were killed with two long bombs but camped on the Tulane goal in the last seconds. complete reversal in the University's position on restructuring. The proposal, made with the approval of a powerful group of UNC trustees, would expand the Consolidated University to include all 16 t ate-supporttd universities. The subcommittee of the joint House and Senate Committee on Higher Education will meet again next week to polish the bill into final form. If the full joint committee approves the measure, it will be presented to the General Assembly in its special session on higher education bezmr.irg October 26. 78 Years of Editorial Freedom Saturday, October 9, 1971 mo conclusions, however, but there was no evidence in the report damaging to head coach Bill Dooley or any member of his staff. The 32-page report discounted rumors Arnold received any physical abuse from the coaches the afternoon he suffered heal stroke or he was ignored by the coaches after he collapsed. The report also noted that Arnold was not dehydrated when admitted to the hospital. The players were not given a water break during the one hour and 50 minute practice, the report said, but it included testimony from several doctors that the heat stroke would not have been prevented even if Arnold had received water. Since the incident, Dooley has Priorities was also presented at the meeting. A report from the Faculty Council's Committee on Athletics on the death of varsity football player Bill Arnold followed these two reports. Limitations on the use of Horace Williams airport approved by the council include the restriction of the airport to aircraft operated by the University; restrictions on the type of aircraft that are allowed to operate at the airport; and Biddell said he and Calos had noticed the ceiling was sagging "about six inches" and reported the ceiling to their residence advisor, Harold Brown, and to the University Physical Plant about two weeks ago. He said he understood the room had been scheduled for repairs but he did not know when. Paul Medlin. maintenance superintendent in the physical plant, said he had known nothing about plans to repair the ceiling or that it had been reported as sagging. The ceiling was replaced by 5:30 p.m. the same day. "The school is going to pay for repairing everything that got broken and for cleaning my clothes and my rug," Biddell said. The Green Wave defeated Texas Tech in the opener 15-l. lost to Georgia 17-7. and then dropped a 14-11 decision to Rice and a 14-3 loss to William and Mary. ve were taking wiuiam and Mary lightly," Curl said. "The first two games were real toe-to-toe slugfests. The game at Rice was the same way. except Rice did all the slugging." If Tulane does any exploding today, it will be in an unlikely place - their defensive backfield. Paul Ellis, Joe Bullard and David Hebert have been playing together since their sophomore year, and they combined for 22 interceptions last season. With his darting punt return. Bullard is a potential All-Ameruvn U.hert. the A Under the present tdl. the uitirsati governing board would ronscs! of 25 members. 16 of which wcu.d be appointed by the General Assembly. The Governor would join his eight appointees to complete the board. No state official or legcslat:: will be allowed to serve on the board.

The interim board would merge the starts ct the Consolidated University and the State Board of Highr Education. The interim board would consist ct" 15 ne Mm O fekdM (die instituted water breaks every 20 minutes. Other rumors denied by the report were that Arnold was on a crash diet or drugs; that Arnold was left on the field a long length of time after collapsing; and that there was an attempt to suppress information. The report also said there was nothing unusual about the Sept. 6 practice other than the warm temperature of 83 degrees and high humidity of 62 per cent at the start of practice. Included in the report was a description of the wind sprints leading up stroke and its accompanying complications. "Arnold finished first in his group in the first two sprints, finished with the group on the third through the sixth, stumbled near the end of the seventh but restrictions on traffic patterns, hours of operation, and sales of products at the airport. The resolution will now be sent to the Board of Trustees for approval and implementation. The discussion of University priorities was part of an annual report made to the Faculty Council. The 10 items brought up at the meeting were those which had been made as motions between November 1969 and January 1970, but on which little action has been taken. One recommendation for Council action was the formation of an ad hoc faculty committee on the biological sciences which would draw up plans for the constitution of a Council for the Biological Sciences. The other recommendation was for an attempt to carry out the study of the undergraduate course load, considering the possibilities of a three-year bachelor's degree. Memorial resolutions for John C. Brauer, former de3n of the School of Dentistry, and Raymond Magus, a pharmacology instructor, both of whom died this past year were approved by the Council. Daisy Junge, newly elected president of the Graduate and Professional Student Association, spoke at the close of the meeting on improving faculty-student relations. Expanded student participation on departmental committees, increased faculty support for student causes and new faculty-student seminars were her proposals. quiet, "forgotten man." and Ellis, the hardest hitter, also may have pro futures. Bullard's reputation is such that opposing passers have thrown at him only six times this year. They have tried only 60 passes all year, mostly flares and screens. Glenn Harder and Mike Mullen, a transfer from Oklahoma, are two good starting linebackers, while 6-5 tackle Bob Waldron is rated highly. The other tackle. Joel Hale, '"has played tour good games." according to Curl. The Carolina offense has been more diversified this year than last, but still depends on the running of Ike Oglesby, Geof Hamlin and Lewis Jolley and the expert faking of Paul Miller. Miller has completed 4S percent of his passes, taking only the calculated risk and E NC trustee. 15 re j. - . a". r.:'e: trustees. tw o members ct the B:c.

According to players and coaches interviewed by the committee, no one noticed or was alarmed b any of Arnold's actions prior to his collapse. Although no negligence was noted by the committee, the report said there was a problem in UNC athletic programs "not unique to this campus, concerning the interrelationships and areas of responsibilities between players, coaches, trainers and team physicians. "There was a lack or break-down of communications between the entities so vitally concerned with the health and well-being of student athletes," the committee said. According to the report, Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson has recently given the director of the UNC Student Health Service authority to control a player's participation in practices and games where health factors may be involved. Athletic Director Homer Rice commented after the report was made public: "I thought the report was very extensive and very fine. "I do not feel it was slanted in any way," Rice added, "and you certainly have to congratulate the members of the committee for an outstanding job." Sitterson formed the committee Sept. 27 with 39 witnesses eventually testifying. Members of the committee doing the investigating included Dr. Ed Hedgepeth, consultant to the student infirmary chairman; Dr. Robert Melott of the UNC law school; Dr. Gerard Barrett of the School of Business Administration; Dr. Clifford Lyons of the English Department; and Joe Stallings, student body president. At the time of the formation of the investigating committee. Dr. Dan Okun. chairman of the faculty, expressed the reasons for the study. "Many of our faculty members have expressed concern about the events that led to Arnold's death." he said. "There have been a lot of rumors." Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson issued a statement at the beginning of the investigation. He said steps had been taken to minimize the possibility of reoccurence of such an illness. He also said he requested all the facts on the incident be assembled.

Tight end Johnny Cowell and Jolley have been the principal receivers. Carolina's offensive line should not be forgotten, either. It has driven back defensive lines so well that the runners lead ACT statistics by 1. 000 yards over the second-place rushers of Wake 1 orest. Tulane Coach Bemie Fllender ha not been able to get a passing game going. Against Rice, quarterback Mike Walker had a bad night. Against Ui'.ham and Mary , the receiver might as well have had chopsticks tor lingers. Walker and Rusty Luchuusee have completed only 32 percent of their passes. The leading receiver is Maxie LeBlanc. with nine, but Steve Barrio will be back in action this week. Ih. U.i ?r.: - currer.: t'NC Nrd.

(Staff photo by Leslie Todd) Nader attacks Nixon policies Ralph Nader Enda voiced strong disapproval of the second phase of President Richard Nixon's economic policies, saying they only "perpetuate the o d inequities." "It is socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor," Nader said in a brief news conference here Friday morning. '"There is nothing new about the plan." Nader had three mam objections to the extensions of the wage-price control-, Nixon announced Thursday night on nationwide television. "First, how can you successju!i freeze wages and prices uith so many loopholes in the freeze?" he said. "Can you fairly freeze wages and prices without freezing profits'" he continued. "Finally, will the working people accept it if the corporations get a 20 percent tax cut and the people get only a 2.3 percent reduction?" Nader said. Nader also questioned the lifting of the seven percent excise tax on automobiles as a method of creating new jobs. The Nixon administration claim that the tax relief would create 125.000 to 15 0.000 jobs is 'completely unsubstantiated."' Nader said. "The last thing we need m thi-. country is more cars." he said. He mentioned the alternatives cutting personal income taxes b S 2.3 billion dollars or suing the federal exdse revenues to finance a program m m.as transit.
