The Faculty Council heard details of
two parking proposals Friday but took no
official action on either, deferring action
However, the council indicated
support for the parking proposal written
by Student Body President Joe Stallings
and his assistant Lee Corum in an
unofficial vote at the end of the meeting.
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor, asking
for a "straw vote," gave the council three
alternatives: the proposal submitted by
Allen Waters of the University Traffic and
Safety Committee; the proposal
presented by Stallings and Corum; or the
alternative of taking no immediate action
on the parking problem.
A number of members of the council
had left the meeting when the vote was
The vote was approximately 20 in
favor of the Stallings-Corum proposal,
five in favor of the Traffic and Safety
Committee proposal and 10 in favor of
accepting neither proposal.
Taylor said there "is no decision
imminent on this matter. As chancellor, I
intend to take time in making a decision.
My mind is not made up."
Waters, publicly explaining for the
first time the proposals of his committee,
said "No possible plan will satisfy all the
concerned interests. It is time to take
drastic action on the parking problem."
The University plan calls for the
building of two multilevel " parking
garages on campus at a cost of $3.95
million. A 1,000-space garage would be
built in the Bell Tower parking lot and a
500-space garage would be buUt south of
Manning Drive, across from N.C.
Mason Farm Road would be extended
to serve these structures. It would meet
South Columbia Street at its west end,
and would be extended onto campus to

commuting students could buy "hunting

students could obtain parking permits
near the married student housing for 55 a
The Stallings-Corum plan, to cost
about SI. 85 million, also involves a
500-space hospital garage. But it calls for
two 1,000-space fringe parking
facilities-at Horace Williams Airport and
on Mason Farm Road, with shuttle-bus
service from these lots to campus.
Permits for 4,600 F, A-l, and A-2
spaces would be sold for S90 a year.
Permits for present C, G, H, J, and M
spaces would be $20 a year, and fringe-lot
parking would be $10 a year.
Corum said, "This is a rough proposal
designed to stress the need for further
consideration of the problem and
investigation of alternatives. We must
consider, for example, the undesirability
of continuing to attract cars to park on
The council also heard the report of
the Faculty Athletic Committee, read by
committee chairman Frank W. Klingberg.
Klingberg said the committee has been
conducting interviews with UNC athletes
in all sports, and has sent questionnaires
concerning athletics to over 150 schools
in the U.S. The report made no

Cohen said he felt it was in the best
interest of SL to call for a referendum to
coincide with the February 29 student
elections since 6,000 students had
expressed support for NC-PIRG.
Rep. John Molen introduced two
amendments opposing Cohen's bill. The
amendments changed the funding of
NC PIRG from a fee increase to a
voluntary check-off system by which a
student would indicate whether or not he
wished to lie billed for money for the
Molen said NC-PlRG's current
proposal to refund the $1.50 to students
who did not wish to contribute to the
organization, placed an unnecessary
burden on the student.
"This goes against what PIRG is
talking about, protecting the student
from fraud." Molen said. "The voluntary

funding," Beason said, "and the fee

.Molen's amendment was adopted by a
19-17 roll call vote.
Cohen then introduced a substitute
amendment to the bill which would have
by-passed the general elections law for
this'specific case and placed the original

Hargrove "Skipper" Bowles, candidate
for the Democratic nomination for
governor, said in Memorial Hall Friday he
is confident the young people of today
can assume the responsibility of knowing
the candidates and the issues and can
"change tomorrow as you will it to be."
Bowles' speech was part of the North
Carolina Conference of the National
Association for the Advancement of
Colored People (NAACP) which ends
Kelly M. Alexander Jr., coordinator of
the conference, called the gathering "the
most unique meeting of young people
centered around politics in the United
States." The conference is intended to

Molen proposed another amendment
to the bill which would not have allowed
the previous provisions of the bill to
become operative until NC PIRG had
submitted a constitution or articles of
incorporation for SL approval.
While opponents to the amendment
said SL approval on an NC PIRG
constitution would not affect the group,
since SL was not providing any funds,
Molen said the amendment would
determine who the money went to.
Although Molen's amendment passed
by consent, Cohen pointed out the
wording of the amendment defeated the
entire bill, because even a referendum
could not be called until NC-PIRG had
submitted a constitution and SL had

The smiling gubernatorial candidate
said he helped sponsor bills in North
Carolina to give the 18-year-olds the vote
and the privilege of absentee ballot. By
doing this, Bowles said, it indicated his
faith in the 750,000 potential voters
between 1 7 and 2 1 in this state.
Bowles reiterated throughout his
informal speech that young people should
get familiar with the issues and know why
they are voting for a particular candidate.
The former state senator called 1972
"the most exciting year in politics in
North Carolina," because of the
upcoming presidential primary, and the
congressional and gubernatorial elections.
He especially noted the candidacies of
Terry Sanford and Shirley Chisholm as

abstentions defeated the bill. Molen said
the bill's defeat was not what he wanted.
"I feel the students have a right to decide
how they want to be billed," he said.
Beason said he could not understand
how 35 percent of the student body can
express their interest in a vote on
NC PIRG and how a minority can cancel
these student wishes because of faulty
wording in an amendment.
"Our original petition was not invalid
for PIRG's purposes," Beason said. "We
have 6,000 students who support us and
this is what we wanted to find out."
Beason said PIRG would now circulate
petitions complying with the general
elections laws in order to get the 1,850
signatures for a referendum on February

Under the bill, the elections bord will

Polls would be moved from: V Court

lobby of Whitehead dormitory.
Rep. Dave Gephart tried to amend the
bill by placing another off-carnpus polling

amendment was not allowed and the bill
passed by consent.
