Monday announced his candidacy for the
Democratic nomination for the U.S.
Senate during a flying tour of the state.
Calling for "20th century solutions to
20th century problems," the Fourth
District representative made official his
long-expected challenge to the
75-year-old incumbent, Democratic
Senator B. Everett Jordan.
Galifianakis, his family, supporters and
a small group of newsmen skipped across
the state in a chartered Piedmont
turboprop plane to meet a day-long
schedule of news conferences and rallies.

Winston-Salem and Charlotte followed
the Greenville announcement. The full
day of hectic activities was capped by a

well as on the local boards."
The meeting began at 1 1 a.m. with a
discussion centering on what procedure
was to be used to conduct the elections.
The Executive Committee of the
Board of Trustees had recommended the
16 representatives be nominated from the
floor, with the 16 nominees receiving the
most votes to be elected. The top 16
would not be required to poll a majority
However, State Sen. Ralph H. Scott
(D-Alamance) proposed a substitute
motion which was adopted by the
trustees in a 47-37 vote.
Scott's motion required the trustees to
select 32 names in the first ballot, then
voting for 16 in the second ballot. In
order to be elected, the nominee had to
poll a majority vote of 45.
The first ballot, which required an
hour and a half to tabulate, selected 32
nominees. The trustees then voted again,
giving 14 nominees the necessary
majority to win election.
Two more run-offs were required
before the final two representatives were

A total of about 500 students will
terminate their formal education at the
end of this semester by withdrawing from
the University, according to a records
Raymond E. Strong, director of the
Office of Records and Registration, said
from 70 to 100 students are expected to
withdraw from a total of 5,700 students
in the General College.
A proportionate number will withdraw
from the College of Aits and Sciences, he
Dr. John K. Nelson, associate dean of
the General College, said there is no one
motorcade, large news conference and
reception at the Asheville Holiday Inn.
Crowds of Galifianakis supporters,
including many of college and high school
age, greeted him at every stop. A
contingent of students from UNC at
Asheville helped organize the motorcade
there while students from Peace College
were vocal at the Raleigh-Durham-University
Airport news conference.
Galifianakis repeatedly emphasized his
ability to meet today's problems with
energy and flexibility.
"The fundamental issue in the 1972
election is which among us is better
equipped to move forward with our
people during these rapidly changing
times," he said.
Calling for new approaches to old
problems, the Congressman asked the
voters to decide which candidate has "the
greater vision to see into the remaining
years of this century - and to assure that
our land can continue to provide enough
food, air and water to meet the demands
of a doubling and tripling population.

Most students are ready for a break after the long stretch
from September to Thanksgiving, and only 68 persons have
made dormitory reservations for the weekend break.
"The students who have made reservations in Can and
Mclver dormitories are mostly foreign students," said Assistant
Director of Residence Life John Meeker. "Almost all of those
students live in the dorms during the year."
Craige dormitory, the only other dorm open during the
break, is only open for graduate students presently living
Meeker said students wishing to stay in a dormitory during
the vacation can still make reservations to stay in Carr or
Mclver dormitories. The dorms will take students on a
first-come, first-served basis until they are filled.
Classes end at 1 p.m. Wednesday. All other dormitories will
be locked at 6 p.m. that day.
Meeker explained that the Office of Residence Life began
locking dormitories last Christmas because of the "extensive
cause for students to drop out of college;
rather, there are "lots of reasons."
Nelson talks with most sutdents
considering withdrawal from the General
College. He says he has a chance "to find
out how carefully the student has
thought out what he is about to do."
Nelson said some students have
financial problems which force them to
leave. "Either they have an obligation to
help out at home, or they're on their own
and can't make it," he said. But he added
this is the case of only a few students.
"The largest group of students who
withdraw indicate a lack of motivation,"
Nelson said, even though some have very

Galifianakis denied he would make
Jordan's age (75) and health an issue in
the campaign. Jordan underwent major
surgery last winter.
While advocating new approaches to
the problems of crime, drug addiction,
the economy and "a safe America,"
Galifianakis said he would preserve
"those values from our heritage that
should be preserved."
The fight to"-wrest the Democratic
nomination from the incumbent senator
in the May primary will be a difficult,
uphill battle, Galifianakis acknowledged.
Saying that naming him the underdog
in the primary battle was "a very fair
characterization," the congressman
pledged to make his campaign on "a

reflects a disillusionment with higher
education," he added. "Many find it too
much a continuation of high school."
Nelson said as a result of various high
school and family experiences, the
student finds he is not into what he
thought he was getting into. "Withdrawal
becomes often just another form of
rebellion," he said.
It is almost impossible to generalize
the causes for a lack of motivation.
"Highly individual circumstances" are
involved in most cases, Nelson said.
Another group of "drop outs" is the

suffer from a case of "old-fashioned

Chapel Hill alderman and architect Joe
Nassif has been mentioned frequently for
one of the top positions in the
Galifianakis campaign organization.
Galifianakis denied the Congressional
redistricting plan recently enacted by the
N.C. General Assembly influenced his
decision to run.
"The decision to run was made long
before the General Assembly met to
decide that issue," he told a large,
enthusiastic crowd at the Smith Reynolds
Airport in Winston-Salem. Galifianakis
served as the Representative to the U.S.
Congress from the Fifth District, which
includes Winston -Salem, for one term.
The redistricting moves enacted by the
legislature removed Orange County and
Chapel Hill from Galifianakis Fourth
District. These had formed a major source
of support for the two-term
representative in his successful races for

All dormitories will reopen at noon Sunday. Classes resume

Final examinations begin just two weeks after students
return from Thanksgiving break. Exams are scheduled from
Monday, Dec. 13, through Wednesday, Dec. 22.

can't make the adjustment to a new way
of living," Nelson said.
Then there are the misplaced students.
"Some students withdraw because they
realize their own career plans are not
served by a liberal arts college," says
Nelson. "Where they really belong is in a
community college or a trade school.
"In those cases, withdrawal is
The reason why some students tend to
make this mistake lies in the fact that
"we tend to downgrade trade school
institutions," Nelson said.
After students have withdrawn, some
work, and many travel. Some express a
desire to stay in Chapel Hill to take
advantage of all aspects of local life
except in the field of academics.
The emotion-charged issue of busing
came up at the Charlotte news conference
for the Senatorial hopeful. There he
expressed his opposition to busing as a
means of achieving racial balance and
pointed to his support of the House move
to bring a Constitutional amendment on
the subject up for debate.
The Galifianakis campaign will come
to Chapel Hill and the UNC campus at
least once before the primary, according
to Galifianakis' aides. No definite date
has been set for such a visit by the
