The American Association of
University Professors (A A UP) discussed
Thursday the death of UNC football
player Bill Arnold after the leader of a
group asking athletic reform appeared at
the group's meeting.
Bill Richardson, chairman of the
Committee of Concerned Athletes, a
group of former UNC football players,
distributed copies of the Concerned
Athletes statement on Arnold's death and
urged AAUP members to read the
Several AAUP members then insisted
upon more discussion of the incident, and
the athletes' report occupied a major
portion of the meeting.

Faculty Council, said he could find no

knowledge of another country, culture,

individual-that's what the Peace Corps

Peace Corps recruiters will be on

An Orange County resident will
protest the registration of I'NC students
living in dormitories at the Nov. 2 County
Board of Elections meeting.
Jan Pinney of Route 5. Chapel Hill
said Tuesday he would protest the
registrations and challenge the students
right to vote in Chapel Hill.
"It seems to me that if a person comes
here for the express purpose of going to
school, he can't be making a permanent
residence here," Pinney said. "That's
something the courts will have to
Roger B. Foushee, chairman of the
Orange County Democratic Party,
disagreed with Pinney 's contentions,
"We have said that anyone who
declares himself a resident in the county
and meets the requirements and
obligations is elegible to vote.
"The disagreement I have is that you
cannot make a blanket statement saying
all students in dormitories are ineligible
for citizenship in Orange County.
"For example, I know a graduate
student in Craig who has not claimed her

that there was no negligence on the part
of the coaching staff.
"Only the sports writers, who are part
of the athletic establishment, came to the
conclusion that there was no negligence
in the death of Bill Arnold," Okum said
at the AAUP meeting of the American
Association of University Professors
The Committee of Concerned
Athletes, a group of former UNC football
players, distributed copies of their report
attacking the Faculty Council Committee
on Athletics' report of Arnold's death.
Okum urged AAUP members to read
both the faculty and the Concerned
Athletes reports. He said he hoped there
would be a greater response to needed
changes if faculty members read both
