tit it ii ii A 78 Years of Editorial Freedom Wednesday, December 1, 1971 Founded February 23, 1893 Vol. 80, No. 74 Cam sums iiiLcdlcBinitt O o o by Evans Witt Staff Writer Associate Dean of Student Affairs James O. Cansler said Tuesday he does not view the function of the Student Affairs office as being an advocate for the students., "The Office of Student Affairs has the terribly difficult job of being a liason between some student interests and some administration-faculty-trustee interests," he said. "I do not see it as an advocate function but as an interpretive, sympathetic function. "We are the office with feet in both camps and have a terribly difficult time being fair to both sides," Cansler added. Cansler's comment came after a faculty-student committee suggested reorganization of the office and after Student Body President Joe Stalings severely criticized the office. The Committee on Student Involvement in University Administrative Structures, chaired by Dr. Gordon B. Cleveland, proposed the creation of a 20-rnan board to oversee the activities of three Student Affairs departments. The proposal was turned down last month by the Faculty Council which suggested the committee come up with a new plan. Shortly after the Faculty Council action, Stallings sent a critical letter to Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson, asking him to take the initiative in changing the Office of Student Affairs. Cansler disagreed with Stalling's contention that the Student Affairs office should be a student advocate. . .. -'-U I 111 ' 1J .

Cansler said he viewed the office as one with much the same function as an ombudsman, a disinterested advocate of significant causes. "As an ombudsman, we can be an advocate for any group," he said. "But one does not take up every cause brought to him." He went on to explain the need for objectivity in the Student Affairs office and the difficulty in achieving this stance. "Being in the position of playing the role of interpreter, there are times when we have to be objective," he added. "We might have to become an advocate for a student cause at one time and for an administration position at another time," Cansler said. "Unless we can do both with equal facility, we C3n do neither well." "The way I would interpret 'student advocate' is that I would have to fight for the student causes simply because they sent it forth, not because it was a good idea," he said. Dean of Student Affairs CO. Cathey refused to comment directly on any plan for reorganization or Stallings' charges. "When the chancellor gets back, he can comment on it," Cathey said shortly before the Thanksgiving break. "My telephone is always available; anyone who wants to do business with me knows I'm available." "There does need to be student input," Cansler said. "There is." Cathey indirectly criticized the Gordon Committee proposal by citing the channels for student input that already exist in the Student Health Service, student judiciary and Student Union. He also denied criticism Stalling made of the Student Affairs Office Advisory Board. "My Administrative Board is made up of busy people; it is a policy-developing board," he said. "I don't call them together on trivial matters." Cansler also refused to comment directly on any plan for reorganizing the office or to present any particular plan of his own. "Every job and office and department owes it to itself and its constituency to ask constantly 'Are we doing the best possible job in the best possible way?'" he said.

These youngsters enjoy Chapel Hill's annual Christmas Marchers arrested again Parade, which attracted a large crowd along Franklin Street Tuesday night. (Staff photo by Leslie Todd) Ayden protest falter by United Press International GREENVILLE, N.C. (UPI) - For the second straight day police arrested protestors Tuesday as they attempted without a local parade permit to begin a circuitous march to Raleigh. About 50 blacks were taken in two buses to the Pitt County Jail here after the march had proceeded one block from St. Gabriels Catholic Church. Sixty-two persons were arrested Monday and later released on bond. Protest leader Golden Frinks, state field secretary of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said his group would attempt to march every day until it is allowed to leave the city. Frinks has chosen to flout the city's parade permit ordinance rather than apply 72 hours in advance, saying the ordinance is unconstitutional. The protest centers on the Aug. 6 shooting death of a black farm laborer, William Earl Murphy, by a white highway patrolman, Billy Day. A coroner's jury ruled that Day acted in self defense. The N.C. advisory committee to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission asked state and federal authorities to investigate the Murphy shooting and reports police have mistreated protestors who have been arrested in demonstrations over the incident. More than 800 arrests have been made here and in nearby towns since demonstrations began last August. The protestors handed out handbills Tuesday before they were arrested that said, "Come march to Raleigh with the SCLC and the Rev. Ralph Abernathy." Abernathy, president of the SCLC, was in Greenville Nov. 19 to speak to a rally. He said he was thinking of tilling for a full-scale demonstration in North' Carolina by his organization, but he has not returned since. The marchers cljpped and sjng as they boarded the two police buses, offering no resistance to police. The marchers said they planned to go to Wilmington, Kinston. Charlotte, Durham and Chapel Hill before arriving several days later for a rally at the Capitol in Raleigh. .Business manager named for DTE. -Duke by Ellen Gilliam Staff Writer The Soviet Jewry Freedom Bus, sponsored by the American Zionist Youth Foundation, will be at Duke University at 8 p.m. Sunday for one of its final stops on a nationwide tour. Two recent Jewish emigrants from Russia a man and a woman who left the Soviet Union six months ago - and several American students have been touring major American cities by bus since October. The Central North Carolina Rally Sunday will be held in front of Duke Chapel. Steve Robkin, A UNC sophomore and a member of the recently established Jewish Commune here, said the aim of the bus tour is to make the general public aware of the plight of Soviet Jewry and emigration problems. According to Robkin, the Soviet Jewry campaign is about 10 years old but has gained more national attention in the last two years. "The Soviets are more sensitive to their Jewish population now as a result of world opinion," he said. Russian Jews are completely dependent on world opinion in their struggle against Soviet repression, he said, and are aware of international movements in their favor. "Soviet Jews know what's happening the world and news of activism and rallies such as this get back to them by way of an extensive underground information system," Robkin said. When a group of local students picketed an appearance of the Siberian Ballet in Durham last year, the story appeared on the front page of a Jewish newspaper, he said. The official Soviet policy on Jewish emigration to Israel has been to allow Jews to leave on the basis of family reunification, Robkin said, "but, in fact, this policy has been followed quite arbitrarily." According to Robkin, even though the Soviet Union has allowed more Jews to emigrate to Israel in the last few years, there is still fear and danger involved with the act of applying for emigration. The Soviet Jewry Freedom Bus will conclude its national tour in mid-December with a rally at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Murray Pool, former business manager for WCAR, has been appointed acting business manager of The Daily Tar Heel, the Publications Board announced Tuesday. Pool replaces Bob Wilson, who will attend law school at Emory University. A 1969 graduate of UNC, Pool has also worked for a banking and mortgage company and was in business for himself with Information Research Associates. "I've known and thought a lot of Bob Wilson and hope to continue the fine standards he has set for the business office," Pool said Tuesday. Wilson said his work with The Daily Tar Heel was a "most enjoyable experience, but an opportunity has come up that I can't pass up." Wilson has served as DTH business manager on two occasions. He first took the office in December 1969 and served until the end of that school year. He returned to the DTH the following January and has retained the post since then. He is a graduate of UNC with a B.S. degree in Industrial Relations.
