interview Tuesday. "We have no

Residents of Aycock Dormitory began
a massive roach killing contest at
The contest, which will last until noon
Saturday, is designed to alert the Physical
Plant to the problems of a growing
population of roaches, according to
Aycock President Jim Womble.
He said a petition requesting
fumigation of the dormitory was
presented two weeks before Thanksgiving
to the Physical Plant and to Residence
Although the dormitory was
fumigated during Thanksgiving holidays,
problems were only worsened because
only the halls and the bathrooms were
sprayed, Womble said.
Womble said the roaches naturally
flocked to students rooms.
"Since Thanksgiving, students have
found roaches in their drawers, behind
posters and in every possible place,"
He described the roach killing contest
as a way to "get the Physical Plant on its
Womble said the first basic rule of the
contest is "to kill every roach in
"The second rule is to see that the
roaches are dead and partially intact and
placed in an air-tight container," he
The third rule of the slogan of the
contest is "to get rid of those meager
beasts," Womble said.
The committee is working with Friday
to find a replacement for current
Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson, who will
leave his post at the beginning of the

which began over a year ago, the

"I feel we've petitioned deaf ears," he
Womble hopes every dormitory can
get rid of roaches because they constitute
a menace and an inconvenience.
"It's really sickening," he said, "when
you get dressed you have to shake
everything out before you put it on
especially your shoes.
"It would be appreciated by dorm
membtiS if the Physical Plant will give us
warning if they come so we can protect
our clothes," he added.
"We're doing this in fun, hoping v e
can rid Aycock of raoches," Womble said.

that my loyalties lie with the human
race," he added.
Womble concluded that "roaches may

someday the University will be educating
roaches instead of students."

In the fall of 1 970, Friday appointed
the Andrews Committee to begin the
search for a new chancellor. Through the
winter and into the spring of this year,
the committee met to consider possible
In early May the committee presented
Friday with a list of three choices for the

over the plans to restructure N.C. Higher
Education led Friday to ask Sitterson last
summer to continue in his post until the
controversy and future structure of the
University was settled.
Following the decision of the N.C.
Legislature to place all of state-supported
higher education under one governing
board, the process for appointing a new
chancellor began anew.

students had approached him about a

"With this plan, a student not desiring

still do so and e3t breakfast and lunch

allocation of the funds.
The House bill would entitle an
institution to receive funds based
partially on per capita student enrollment
and the remaining amount based on the
number of students now assisted under
certain federal programs.
The Senate bill, on the other hand,
would compute each institution's gjant
on the basis of the amount of student aid
The discussion of Fountain's
objections to the two bills were only a
portion of a speech that began with a
history of the federal aid given to higher
education since the Morrnl Act of 1X62.
That act provided money for the
establishment and maintainence of
colleges devoted to agriculture and
"So far I have addressed myself to the
difficult but relatively conventional
problem of financing higher education,"
he said. "But there are other dimensions
to that problem which must be faced."
Fountain said questions are being
asked about "the relevance of
curriculums, student-faculty relations, the
need for the utilization of the customary
forms of instruction and physical
facilities, the high drop-out rate, the life
style of students and the very
fundamental consideration of whether we
have oversold higher education and
degrees in relation to careers."
Fountain received both his
undergraduate and law degrees from UNC
and said that this and other reasons
prompted his special concern for the
University's interests and future.

been rumored to be considering running
against Fountain in the 1972 elections for
the Second Congressional seat, but Lee
has not formally announced.

country dinner night and an occasional
special like a Polynesian luau."
He said the specials were begun to help
break the routine of being restricted to
two dining rooms. Specials currently
offer fried chicken, spaghetti, and fish.
Greer urged students with ideas for the
food service to contact him. "We're
always receptive to suggestions," he said.
