The removal of architectural barriers

well underway within the next five
years." according to Dr. Thomas A. Stein,

Stein said UNC has been given a

Carolina to plan a Comprehensive
Rehabilitation Institute in Chapel Hill.

Starin, who was asking exemption

asked Associate Dean of Student Affairs
James O. Cansler, chairman of the
committee, if there were any student
members of the group.
"Cansler said there were just three
people on the committee," Starin said.
Starin will receive today the decision
of the committee, made up at his hearing
of Schroeder, Cansler and Dean of Women
Katherine K. Carmichael.
His reasons for requesting the
exemption, Starin said, were that he had
already spent four years in dormitories, in
preparatory school, and that dorm life is

"Everything was positive about our
work, and as a result, 44 states took
official action to make future buildings
accessible to the handicapped."
North Carolina was not one of these
states. In 1967, state legislature Rep.
Howard Twiggs (D Wake) introduced a
bill calling for renovations.
"The bill failed," said Stein, "but later
the state building added a handicapped
section to make all buildings intended for
the public accessible to the handicapped.
This includes all new campus buildings.
"The problem in this state is that this
section lacks any enforcement conditions
to make sure this happens," Stein said. "I
think funds should be established for an
office to control this."

The student members of the
committee, according to Cansler's letter,
are to be the president of the junior class
and a representative of the opposite sex
of the Residence College Federation
(RCF). Last year, Capps and Cecil Miller
served on the appeals committee.
The expansion of the committee
membership to include students was one
by-product of the Junior Housing
Forum's work last year. Capps was
chairman of that committee.
According to Capps, Hadley
Whittemore, current president of the
junior class, has been to Cansler's office

the committee, but he simply had not
