That infighting, and its p'-liti.al .or cquorKc-s.

Student Body Prcsid.-nt Joe Stallings
called Tuesday for a committee to
investigate questions about the UNC
football program which have been raised
by the Faculty Council's Committee on
The committee raised a number of
questions about grant-in-aids, recruiting
methods, the practice of "red-shirting"
and the kind and amount of medical aid
available during athletic practices in its
report on the death of UNC football
player Bill Arnold.
S tailings, a member of the
subcommittee formed to investigate the
incident, said in a statement, "For several
days I have talked with the chancellor
and have requested that an immediate
investigation be made of the questions
raised by the Faculty Athletic Committee
at the end of their report."
However, no plans have been made for
further study of the football program,
Stallings said, "nor is it clear as to when
these plans will be made for such a
"There is no question that further
study is called for, first of all because the
Faculty Athletic Committee, during the
course of its investigation, heard
testimony which they felt warranted
further study," Stallings added.
He said another reason for further
study is the report of the Committee of
Concerned Athletes, a group of former
UNC football players, who also raised
questions about the football program.
"It is important to point out."
Stallings said, "that there is no great
difference, in my opinion, between the
questions raised in the Faculty Athletic
Committee report and the questions
raised by the allegations made by Bill
Stallings said he thinks nothing would
be gained by further investigation of the
specific facts concerning Bill Arnold's
death. Arnold, a junior from Staten
Island, N.Y., suffered a heat stroke during
football practice Sept. 6 and died 15 days
Stallings said he believes the facts
surrounding Arnold's death "were as
RCF asks neiv dorm policy
Do it -yourself paintiii
by Jessica Hanchar
A policy to allow students to paint
dorm rooms is being drafted by the
Residence College Federation (RCF) and
the UNC Office of Residence Life,
according to RCF Chairman Steve
The Committee on University
Residence Life (CURL) should consider
the policy in "about two weeks,"
Saunders said, and the policy should be
finalized before the end of the semester.
"I'm not sure what kind of policy will
come out," he said, "but I'm working for
one with as few restrictions as possible."
The new policy will have provisions
for alteration and redecoration in the
rooms and common areas of dorms,
He said there are some "primary
concerns" slowing down implementation
of the painting policy. Paint build-up and
peeling on the walls over the years could
become a problem, Saunders said. One
proposal is to charge for the painting
privilege to cover the costs of sanding
walls and removing old paint.
The question of whether to have a
damage deposit and how much to charge
is another problem. "Would a damage
deposit insure the painting is done
properly?" Saunders asked.
"How should we insure the students
would do a quality painting job?" he
continued. "Should we include
How much freedom students should
have in painting their rooms is another
concern of those drafting the policy,
Saunders said. "Should any designs and
any colors be allowed, even if it requires
three coats to cover the wall later?"
He said another problem is
determining who would judge the
proposals made by students and the
quality of the work after it is done.
"My primary concern is getting the
policy to allow individuals to paint their
rooms," he said. "This has been one of
my highest priorities since spring-one of
my pet projects.
objectively gathered and as fairly
presented as possible."
"Although I do not object to further
investigation of the death," he said, "I do
not feel that anything can be gained by it.
The thrust of the facts would be the same
in any other study."
Stallings said it is important that the
University administration make the actual
appointment of a committee to conduct
"Student government could appoint a
committee but the administration has
ultimate control of the athletic program
and only they can implement chances,"
Stallings said he talked with
Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson on three
occasions requesting the study.
"I wanted to give the chancellor every
opportunity to get an investigation
underway," he said. "But he has not and
I felt that I should say something."
Stallings said the study committee
should have equal student and faculty
representation. None of the groups
closely involved with the
emotion-charged issue should be
over-represented on the proposed
comittee, he said.
"To argue that this matter is closed in
view of the continual controversy is
contrary to the spirit of inquiry in this
university," he said. "If Sitterson doesn't
appoint another committee I believe the
whole University will be hurt."

free health care

The Student Health Action Committee
(SMAC) has been providing free medical
and dental care for Durham and Chapel
Hill residents for the past four years.
At the same time, the student
volunteers who run SHAC's two free
clinics have been gaining valuable
experience by working and learning in a
Charles Margolis, one of SHAC's two
directors, admitted patients get poorer
service at the clinics than in a hospital,
but the patients are satisfied with the
service because of its convenience.
There is usually little or no wait for a
doctor and the clinics are located near the
people they serve.
One of the clinics is located at the

Center and the Ldgemont community of
Medical and dental students, student
nurses, dental hygienists. pharmacy
students and students from the School of
Social Work deal directly with patients.
The clinics provide a unique opportunity
for these students to work together,
The clinics have facilities to treat sick
children and for physical examinations,
Margolis said, but the health education
facilities are not as extensive as SHAC
Margolis said the clinics also provide a
valuable service by allowing medical
students to observe common diea-es,
such as measles, which they would never
see in a hospital.

Visiting doctors, dentists and nurses

to hospitals if they require treatment not
available at the clinics.

thought Smith University tended to tie
more centralized than UNC.
Both groups agreed the black students
at UNC had different objectives and ideas
than I nose at Smith, she said. The black
students in Chapel Hill had more fields of
interest and participated m many
different activities, but at Smith they had
more narrowed fields of interest.
"It is really an experience of
discovery." Miss Campbell said.
