IK I 1 1 yr Vol. 80. No. 72 r JPMtt ff(TDF by Norman Black Staff Writer The Consolidated University Board of Trustees selected its 1 6 representatives to the new Board of Governors for N.C. higher education but failed to include a student representative. In accordance v,ith the new structure of state-supported higher education passed by the N.C. General Assembly, the trustees were required to elect 16 of their members to serve on the powerful 32-member central board. Since the next regular meeting of the trustees is not scheduled until Feb. 28, 1972, Monday's special meeting was called specifically to select their representatives. Representatives elected by the trustees during the five-hour meeting are: Arch T. Allen. Raleigh; Ike F. Andrews, Siler City; Victor S. Bryant, Durham; Lenox G. Cooper, Wilmington; William A. Dees, Jr., Goldboro; Jacob 11.

The 16 UNC representatives will join the 16 members to be elected from the trustees of the other 10 state-supported institutions of higher education Jan. 1 to act as a planning committee for the new system. The governing board will not actually take control of the new system until July 1972. The six student body presidents in the present Consolidated University expressed disappointment with Monday's selections. "I am unquestionably displeased that no students were considered for the Board of Governors," said Chapel Hill Student Body President Joe Stallings. "I continue to believe the consumer prospective of education - that is, the student prospective needs to be articulated on the Board of Governors as (Editor's iote: DTH Staff Writer Evans Witt traveled with Niek Galifianakis on his sei en-city flying tour of North Carolina Monday. Here is his report.) Congressman Nick Galifianakis 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. Airport news conferences at Kinston, Wilmington, Raleigh-Durham, Winston-Salem and Charlotte followed the Greenville announcement. The full day of hectic activities was capped by a 78 Yeurs of Editorial Freedom Tuesday. November 23 1971 e 16 .board. 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 of votes. 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 selected. On July 1,1972, the Board of Governors will assume full powers over the new 16 campuses of the University of North Carolina. That board will have extensive unprecedented powers over the budgets and programs of the state universities. Under the reorganization plan adopted by the General Assembly, each state university will maintain a local board of trustees for internal governance. Student representatives will be allowed to serve on the various local boards. The 32 members of the Board of Governors are required by the new state law to draw lots to determine the length of their term in office. The terms will be staggered, with eight new representatives being appointed by each succeeding General Assembly.

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 said. Dr. John K. Nelson, associate dean of the General College, said there is no one Q aiminLomiinice 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.

' -4 Cold weather makes no difference to responsible for seeing that buildings rise campus, and the construction workers Students for Thanksgiving by Sue English Staff Writer 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 there. 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 respectable grades. "Their immediate lack of motivation "Which among us is better prepared to harness the potential and solve the problems of new technology and vanishing space which have turned our planet into a single neighborhood," he said. 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 person-to-person basis." The campaign leaders for Galifianakis tz'-t xpj: J rtr- j - the men who properly on on the new social clearing 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 first semester freshmen who, Nelson said, suffer from a case of "old-fashioned homesickness." "The student finds he can't work, and naiu will be announced in the next few days, he said. 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 Congress. Founded February 23, 1893 sciences building went about their jobs as usual Monday.

All dormitories will reopen at noon Sunday. Classes resume at 8 a.m. Monday. Final examinations begin just two weeks after students return from Thanksgiving break. Exams are scheduled from Monday, Dec. 13, through Wednesday, Dec. 22. The undergraduate and graduate libraries have slight schedule changes during Thanksgiving vacation. Hours for the undergraduate library are from 7:45 a jn. to 5 p.m. Wednesday; closed on Thanksgiving Day; and from S ajn. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The regular schedule resumes Sunday. Wilson Library will be open from 8 ajn. to 5 pjn. Wednesday; closed on Thanksgiving Day; open from 8 ajn. to 5 pjn. Friday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, and from 2 to 10 p.m. Sunday. A regular schedule will resume Monday. The Student Union will close at 6 pjn. Wednesday and will reopen at 5 p.m. Sunday. 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 appropriate." 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. n Back 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 Congressman, however. Galifianakis, a Durham native and graduate of Duke and Duke Law School, served in the General Assembly for three terms before being elected to the U.S. Congress from the Fifth District in 1966. Redistricted out of that district by the 1967 legislature, he won two consectutive terms in Congress from the Fourth District in 1968 and 1970. In the House, he serves on the powerful House Appro priations Committee.
