Students complain about the
"r -levant v" of college education in North
Carolina. Taxpayers complain about the
money spent to educate the state's youth.
Government officials respond to these
complaints by complaining themselves
about "duplication" of programs and
ii responsible "log-rolling and empire
building" by university officials.
The N.C. General Assembly will meet
Tuesday, October 26, in an attempt to
eliminate the causes of these complaints.
The special legislative session has been
caiL-d to discuss the problems of higher
education in North Carolina and devise
solutions to those problems.
Most people have found the situation
extremely confusing; even the legislators
have a tough time defining the problems
or the solutions which they are trying to

VISTA recruiter k . . Iljhn said he is
trying to bring the message of what
VISTA's trying to do. "Generally, we're
hoping to break the poverty syndrome
and to do so, we must confront the
people with the power and the finances,"

The field at Notre Dame Stadium
didn't tilt when the Fighting Irish walked
out Saturday afternoon.
Carolina's Tar Heels refused to buckle,
Although the score was 16 0. Notre

Heels frustrated Notre Dame's offense
through most of the game and ran better
than most teams at the fabled Irish
"Better," in this case, means 2 yards.
"The average against us is 60," said Roger
V'aldiserri, Notre Dame sports publicist.

score a point since 1967, when the Heels
lost 1 7-0 to Clemson.

The state newspapers have had a field
day with the issue of higher education,
though. Headlines have featured terms
such as ''restructuring" and
"deconsolidation" since the controversy
began during the winter.
Most students have little knowledge of
what the issue is all about, or what it will
mean to their college educations. Most
taxpayers know little of the specifics or
theories; they are most interested in
cutting back on the money which they
are spending on education. And the
legislators have spent most of their time
bickering and fighting, with a wary eye
on election year 72.
What does "deconsolidation" mean?
Might it mean the end to the fine,
academic tradition of the University here
at Chapel Hill, as most UNC
administrators would have one believe?
What about "restructuring"? Might it
mean incorporating the regional
universities under the roof of the
Consolidated University as most regional
university presidents would have one

Hahn spent his year with VISTA in
Philadelphia, working with low income
public housing under a multi-purpose
community organization. VISTA
assignments may also be in rural areas, or
with Indians or migrant workers.
A volunteer's placement is determined
by a synthesis of the volunteer's skills and
experiences and the needs in a particular
part of the country'- The volunteer works
for a local poverty organization and with
the poor people he's trying to help.
In addition to the one-year
committment, VISTA volunteers must
complete a six-week training program in
Washington, D.C. and in the community
in which he will serve. The program
teaches the applicant about himself, the
poverty culture and a different set of
values w ithin "a new type of world."
During their year, volunteers receive a
montldy salary based on the poverty level
of their community, as well as a $50 per
1 onth stipend which accumulates during
' . year.
According to Hahn, VISTA's chief
defense in the country and start with
Patulski is 6-6. 260 and fast. "It I had
a wisdom tooth that was impacted and

a Polish joke," said one writer.
After Carolina took the kickoff and
resolutely ran to its own 46, quarterback
Paul Miller tried to roll out and met Mr.
Patulski. Hello, Walt. Good-bye, football.
Jim Musuraca recovered on the 45.
The drive stalled on the 1 1 when Bill

individual volunteer must be a "spark

leader or decision-maker, or let his ego be
synonomous with decisions being made,"
There are 4,500 volunteers currently
serving in states where the political
structure has requested them. Half of the
volunteers come from a national pool,
while the remainder are native to the
community in which they are working.
Hahn said today's volunteer must look
at the direction VISTA is taking from its
creation seven years ago. "The present
administration finds it hard to erase
VISTA, so it is trying to make the
organization harmless, to make it fit the
mold of present harmless institutions
which are purely service oriented," he

But what about the student? Of the
total cost of taxpayer-funded higher
education in this state, nearly one-third is
funded by those who are being educated.
There are 78,000 students at the 16
institutions. And though only 19 of every
100 young people in North Carolina go
on to an institution of higher learning,
the vast sums of money being spent show
that these young people are considered of
