House and Senate passed a hill Friday bringing state public higher education under a new administrative structure, but the bill could be recalled in the House today. The House voted 55-51 late Friday afternoon to approve the plan by concurring with the final Senate amendment to the bill placing all 16 state-supported institutions under one strong governing board. The Senate had voted 39-7 to approve the amended bill and send it to the House earlier Friday. But Rep.

House voted Friday to change the date of the May primary from Tuesday to Saturday while the Senate will vote on the bill today. The N.C. House also voted overwhelmingly to approve the use of absentee ballots in the primary election, another move partially designed for college students enfranchised under the lX-year-old vote amendment. The Senate approved bringing the issue of absentee ballots up for consideration and debated the absentee ballot issue at some ength.

Two teams thinking strongly about post-season play, Carolina and William and Mary, clash at 1 :30 p.m. today in Kenan Stadium. Both teams are 5-2, and William and Mary is apparently safe atop the Southern Conference, which would send the Indians to the same Tangerine Bowl they lost 40-12 to Toledo last year. The Tar Heels and Clenison are lead :. the ACC, a matter to be resolved tlx the Consolidated University forces, vowed to attempt to have the bill recalled in this morning's House session. Andrew's effort has excellent chance for success in the 9:30 a.m. session. Following the supposedly final vote in the House on the restructuring bill, an attempt was made to recall the bill for further debate. The motion to recall ended in a 53-53 tie, and House Speaker Phil Godwin broke the tie by voting "no" on the motion to reconsider. Both Scott's forces and the supporters of the Consolidated University were expected to lobby intensely Friday night on another motion to reconsider the bill. The narrow four-vote victory for Scott in the House followed an emotional The move to allow absentee ballots in primaries for the first time in the state since 1939 was backed by Lt. Gov. Pat Taylor, an announced candidate for governor in the democratic nomination in the May primary. Taylor held a news conference immediately before the opening of the Friday session to call for the approval of the use of absentee ballots. "We should go one step further (than moving the primary date)," he said. "We should proceed to give absentee ballots in the primary next year." The floor fight in the Senate and in the Rules Committee centered on the abuses of absentee ballots in primaries in the 1930s. A number of senators, led by Sen. Charles B. Deane (D-Richmond), opposed allowing the absentee ballots in the i .0, ,''" i appy Halloween week should the Tigers beat Wake Forest today at Clemson's homecoming. For Carolina to make a bowl game again, the offense must generate more points and, of course, the Heels must win the rest of their games since bowl competition is especially fierce this year. The Indians will go to the Tangerine Bowl (should they beat Richmond) regardless of what happens today, but Carolina must beat William and Mary to retain any hopes.

"You are creating a system of pub!: higher education in North Carolina with the University of North Carolina a minority vote in determining the future of the system," Andrews told the lower chamber. Saying the greatness of the Ur.ivers;t was not centered particularly m the system but in the state, Andrews voiced fears for the Chapel Hill campus. He added, "This state has produced only one thing that has achieved national and international prominence - and that is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill." Andrews also decried the portion of the restructuring bill which "summarily changed primaries since not enough time for consideration of the measure had been allowed. He warned of serious consequences that would result if errors were made in the bill. Deane said he was not opposed to the move but more time should be used to consider the ramification of the issue. He mentioned the possibility of a one- or two-day special legislative session early next year to solve the problem. Sen. Jyles Coggins (I)-Wake). a candidate for the Fourth Congressional Democratic nomination in the May primary, supported the move for absentee ballots in the floor debate. "I would much rather see college students enabled to vote in the towns where they reside rather than in the towns where they go to school," he said.

Camba., a 225-pounder, runs with authonty. and the diminutive Regan has a quick release to capable receiver Dave Knight and Ed Helies.

The Senate, which passed an amended bill Thursday night and sent it to the House, had to recall the bill due to the garbled and unclear language in some section of the bill. The amendment whuh the House finally voted on concerned the composition of the initial board of governors which will assume control Julv 1,1972. The restructuring bill sets up a planning board and initial board of governors composed of trustees from current boards of trustees. The initial board would have 33 members - 15 from the UNC board of trustees, 15 from the trustees of the regional universities, two from the State Board of Higher Education and one from the N.C. School of the Arts. Scott would serve as chairman of the board until his term expires. The board of governors would then elect their own chairman. The board, which would take over July 1, 1972, would have complete budget and program control powers over all 16 state institutions. Each campus of the system will have local boards of trustees after the implementation date of the bill with limited powers designated by the central board.
