Vol. 80, No. 53
by Evans Witt
RALEIGJJ - The NC. General
Assembly gave the Consolidated
University (CU) equal representation on
the new higher education governing board
after the House reconsidered the bill
Saturday to restructure higher education
in the state.
The change in composition of the
strong central board represented a small
but significant victory for the
Consolidated University in the legislative
battle over restructuring state-supported
The bill placing all 16 state institutions
under one strong governing board was
recalled by the House Saturday for
further consideration after it had passed
both the House and Senate supposedly
for the last time Friday.
The House amended the bill to give
For May 6 primary

RALEIGH The N.C. Senate approved
by a 29-8 vote Saturday the use of
absentee ballots in the May 6 primary
election for state and presidential
The Senate added six amendments to
the version passed overwhelmingly by the
House Friday. The House agreed to all six
amendments without debate and passed
The bill allows absentee balloting in
the May 6 primary and the June run-off
primary but leaves the issue of absentee
ballots for future primaries open.
The bill enacted by the General
Assembly expires July I, 1972.
Many legislators expressed the belief
that the final determination for future
primaries should be made by the 1973
legislature. Several apparently thought
the special session did not offer enough
time to consider the entire issue.

The regional universities and the N.C.

16 voting members of the board. The
governor will serve as chairman of the
board until December 31, 1972, while
two members of the State Board of
Higher Education will be ex-officio
The restructuring bill originally called
for the central board to have 15 UNC
trustees, 15 regional trustees and two
members of the State Board of Higher
Education as voting members.
The move to allow absentee ballots in
N.C. primaries for the first time since
1939 followed the change in the primary
date from Tuesday to Saturday, enacted
by the legislature Friday.
Five of the Senate amendments to the
bill were designed to decrease the
possibility of fraud in the use of the
ballots. The fear of such misuse was
voiced frequently in the House and
Senate during the debate on the measure.
The two main Senate opponents to the
bill. Sen. Julian Allsbrook, (D-Halifax)
and Sen. Ollie Harris (D-Cleveland),
repeatedly cited the instances of fraud
which occurred in the 1930's with the use
of absentee ballots.
Sen. Charles B. Deane (D-Richmond)
voiced opposition to considering the
ballot question in the special session
called to consider higher education.
He called for another special session,
perhaps early next year, to take up all the
changes in elections dates and laws for

Supporters of the Consolidated
University lobbied continously against
this provision, saying it was not fair to
the present six-C3mpus system.
The original bill was approved by both
the House and Senate Friday, but the
House margin was onlv four votes -55-51.

House Speaker Phil Godwin (D-Rowan)
in favor of not reconsidering the measure.
But UNC forces, led by Rep. Ike
Andrews (D-Chatham), worked long into
Friday night to influence votes for
reconsideration of the bill.
The tie vote on the first motion to
reconsider the bill and the House
approval earlier of an amendment similar
to that desired by the CU forces indicated
the efforts might succeed.

Both the absentee ballot bill and the
change in the primary date from Tuesday
to Saturday were the result of intensive
lobbying by student, labor and other
concerned citizen groups during the
special session this past week.
The issue of the absentee ballots came
up during the regular General Assembly
session this spring but was defeated in the
Senate at that time.
During the opening days of the special
session, it appeared the absentee ballot
bill and even the primary date change
measure might not reach the floor of
either house. Opponents of the bills were
vocal in the Rules Committee meetings
on consideration of the issue.
But both issues gained proponents,
including gubernatorial hopeful Lt. Gov.
Pat Taylor, as the week wore on until
final approval came Friday and Saturday
for the measures.

and his legislative backers were also
working feverishly Friday night to
prevent the bill from being reconsidered.
For example, as the House members
entered the chamber in the modern
legislative building Saturday morning,
they were each handed a personal note
from Scctt asking them to vote against
reconsidering the measure.
But the House voted 55-54 to
reconsider the vote on the bill and then
voted almost unanimously to reject the
Senate amendments it had accepted

Martin's capitulation led to the near
unanimity of the second vote and the
appointment of a conference committee
to work out a compromise.
House representatives on the
conference group were Martin, Godwin,
Andrews, Rep. McNeil Smith

The Senate conferees were Lt. Gov.
Pat Taylor, Sen. Russell Kirby

and Mary in thriller
by Mark Whicker
Just as Carolina's defense was getting
all the publicity, along came a
second-string William & Mary quarterback
to knock them back on their heels.
And just as people were beginning to
wonder about the UNC offense, a
second-string tailback led a rushing attack
that gained 384 yards.
The result was a wild 36-35 victory in
Kenan Stadium Saturday, decided by
tipped two-point conversion pass from
Paul Miller to Lewis Jolley, and Coach
Bill Dooley could only say, "I'm glad it's
With 4:37 to go, William and Mary had
the ball and a seven-point lead after Phil
Elmassion's interception, but the defense
finally held and Phil Lamm caught a punt
on the UNC 25.
Billy Hite, the second-string tailback
who was filling in for Ike Oglesby again
and gained 146 yards, got to the 34,
where Miller hit Earl Bethea with a
Indian Co3ch Lou Loltz thought that
Bethea had trapped the pass and that the
wrong referee had called the play. He lost
his composure, you might say, throwing
his clipboard into the air and causing a
15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct
penalty. After 16 yards by Hite on two
plays, Miller rolled right, pitched out to
Jolley for a 13-yard score.
Dooley decided to win the game with
a two-point conversion, and Miller passed
for Jolley. Defensive tackle Greg Freaney
apparently batted the pass away, but
Jolley reacted and caught it just inside
the goal line.
Most of the day belonged to a
resourceful substitute quarterback named
John Gargano, his nimble receiver Dave
Knight, and Carolina's Hite, Jolley and

UNC to be host
to 30 Canadians
by Lynn Lloyd
Thirty Canadian students from the
University of Toronto will arrive in
Chapel Hill Thursday, for a week's stay
on the UNC campus.
They will be hosted by members of
the Toronto exchange.
The students will be met at Morehead
Planetarium Thursday evening and taken
to a welcome party at Battle House. They
will stay at the residence of their hosts
while in Chapel Hill.
Weekday mornings will be free for
attending classes. Chancellor J. Carlyle
Sitterson will speak at 12:30 p.m. Friday
at a reception luncheon for the Canadians
at the Carolina Inn. In the afternoon, 11
members of the exchange will travel in
the Chapel Hill area to meet a farmer and
some local townspeople.
Various professors on campus will
have members of the exchange in their
homes for dinner Friday evenings.
Afterwards, all are invited to a square
dance at 9 p.m. in the Tin Can.
Saturday's activities include a picnic
lunch donated by Hector's, the
Gargano threaded through the defense
for 23 and 15 yard option touchdowns.
Knight caught nine passes for 194 yards,
a new reception yardage for the Indians.
Hite kept banging away behind strong
blocking. Miller hit six of eight passes for
62 yards, and one touchdown near the
end of the half to Johnny Cowell kept
the intermission score tied.
At first the Tar Heels looked
unbeatable, with Hite and Tim
Kirkpatrick running behind savage
clocking to the W&M 21. Then Ted
Leverenz fumbled and Gargano launched
a 43-yard bomb to Knight, who gave
Carolina's man-to-man coverage fits all
The drive ended when Phil Mosser
fumbled into the end zone and Ricky
Packard recovered. Indian followers
would remember that play later.
William and Mary got the ball back on

field position, but it didn't matter.
A 32-yard run by Mosser helped the
Indians get to the 23, where Gargano

kick on the 32 and scored 15 plays later
on a one-yard gain by Tim Kirkpatrick,
who filled in for fullback Geof Hamlin

Leverenz fumbled again on the
Carolina 16 with 1:28 to go, and when
Lou Angelo interfered with Knight,
Mosser cracked over from the two.
The Tar Heels, not known for their
quick striking ability, got the kickoff
back to the 41 and Bill Sigler cut for 21
yards. A 16-yard pass to Leverenz (the
same pass Oglesby took to a touchdown
at Illinois) set up Miller's touchdown pass
to Cowell for a 14-14 halftime tie.

7:54 left and ground out 71 yards in 11
plays. Miller eluded Paul Scolaro and
scored from the 1 0, making it 21 21.
But at the end of the quarter, Gargano
had William and Mary on the Carolina six
with a 26-yard "wounded duck" pass to
Ed Helies. Mosser scored on the fourth
period's Fust play and it was time for
Carolina to play catch-up again.
They wasted little time. Hite gained 22
yards in four plays and Miller finally
swept left end for an eight-yard score m
the nine-play drive for 54 yards, making
the score 28-2.
Gargano's passes kept chipping away
yardage, and when the Heels were
penalized for defensive holding to the
one, Cambal scored with 5:44 left and
when Elmassion intercepted, the Heels
But they kept coming back. 'There
wasn't any doubt that our offense could
do it again," Dooley said.
