Black campus leaders agree
confrontations between off-campus
blacks and South Campus residents are
reaching a serious level, but they degree
on the causes of the tensions.
Two black leaders - Harry Joneo, an
assistant in the dean of men's office, and
Richard Epps, the first black chairman of
the Men's Honor Court said problems
stem from the resentment off-campus
blacks hold for black students on campus.
But Ron Wesson, president of th -Black
Student Movement CBSM), said the
main reason for trouble on South Campus
is that "the University hasn't dor.-.- its
"Part of the problem is that

RALlilGH - Deconsolidation of the

step closer to realization Wednesday in a
series of votes in the N.C. General
The House voted 74-39 to accept the
committee-approved restructuring bill,
which calls for the dismantling of the

27- 21 a powerful attempt by supporters
of the University to amend the
commit fee bill to form the new !6
campus institutions around the present
The votes indicate University forces
possibly do not have the strength to
defeat the committee bill. The votes are
considered to be major victories in the
restructuring fight for Gov. Bob Scott
and his supporters.

president pro tempore of the Senate,

A panel discussion concerning the
relationship of football to academics at
UNC will be held at S p.m. today in

At one point in the early afternoon
Senate recess, Allen and Sen. John J.
Bumey CD -New Hanover), a long time
foe of restructuring, reportedly had
enough senators but one committed to
the amendments to insure passage.
But, as the debate in the upper
chamber raged for more than two and a
half hours, the forces supporting the
amendments lost votes until the final
The amendments were not introduced
on the House floor by Rep. John Stevens

He had attempted to have thd House

amendments in its first meeting of the

failed there by a 13-9 vote.

Wednesday, it must come up for a final

A two-thirds vote of the chamber
would be necessary to suspend the rules
to permit the final vote on the bill to be
taken today. Such a vote is unlikely,
according to the number of senators.
If there are any major differences
between the Senate and House versions of
the final bill, a joint committee might
have to he farmed to reconcile the lw u
versions to meet late Friday or Saturday.
The full legislative day Wednesday was
occupied in both houses by consideration
of amendments to the committee bill.
Although the Senate was almost
exclusively concerned with the
Stevens-Allen amendments, the House
devoted its entire day considering
piecemeal moves to change individual
sections of the committee bill.

"but I understand that the death of Bill
Arnold will be discussed and as far as I
am concerned that subject is closed."
Toby Cozart, chairman of the Current
Affairs Committee, said Wednesday the
Arnold death will not be the main topic
of discussion but may be mentioned. "As
of now, we're trying to get someone else
to speak from the athletic department."
Cozart said, "but prospects are dim."
Arnold, an offensive guard, died Sept.

practice field two weeks before.

The committee bill had set up an elite
committee of the legislature to nominate
candidates for the posts. The amendment,
introduced by Rep. Sneed High
CD-Cumberland), leaves the question of
the nominating procedure undefined, but
guarantees the right to nominate from the
floor of the chamber.
A proposal by Rep. John Ingram
(D-Randolph) to take all power out of
the hands of the governor in appointing
members of the boaid of governors was
defeated by a voice vote.
A similar amendment was introduced
in the Senate by Sen. Uamar Cudger

The Senate will vote on the
amendment today, following a
determination of the constitutionality of
both methods of selecting the
"governors." said Sen. Russell Kirby

Higher F ducat ion Committee.
The House will be given a chance to
vote on the removal of the governors'
appointive powers again today, according
to sources within the House.
