A new plan for the distribution of
basketball tickets will become effective
for the UNC-Georgia Tech game. Tickets
are scheduled to be distributed
The new distribution system was
devised by the athletic department,
Carolina Athletic Association President
Tommy Pope, and Student Body
President Joe Stallings.

Dickey enters president!
Pitt Dickey, a law student from
Fayetteville, filed Monday for student
body president on the Blue Sky Party
platform, and promised to abolish
Student Government if elected.
Dickey's running mate will be a dog
named Sage. In addition, Dickey plans to
have each member of the student body
serve one day as honorary vice president.
The main reason for abolishing Student
Government is so all student fee money
could be used to buy everyone on campus
a horse, since cars would be abolished.
Dickey said ex-politicos would be given
jobs cleaning up after the horses.
Other campus improvements he plans
to make include: Erection of a giant,
weatherproof dome over the entire
campus for the purpose of keeping the
rain out and the sun and snow in. The
dome would be financed by $15,000
parking stickers; Replacement of all
brick sidewalks with grass. Subways with
electric golf carts would be built
underneath; Printing of a Sunday DTH
with color funnies and Family Weekly
Magazine; A public hanging each
Friday in The Pit of a bicycle thief,
followed by a "Mazola" party in the
office of the president; Placement of
students from overcrowded dorms to
South Building. The administrators would

In trying to pin down the reasons
behind the current changes in the
residence college structure, It is very
difficult to make any sweeping
generalizations as to "what it all means."
Each of the colleges are unique and have
a unique set of problems and answers to
those problems, tach college must be
viewed separately and in proper context.
For instance. King Residence College,
(Grimes, Mangum, Manly, Ruffin) which
recently disbanded, was separated by the
physical structure of the college - the
Arboretum was in the middle. Although
the college sponsored many social as well

as academic activities, there was sparse
attendance at these events.
"Since we are situated in the middle of
campus, students go to the Union for
their social activities rather than
attending college funtions," Kate
Whittington, assistant social lieutenant
governor of King said recently.
She said the residence college system
works well in colleges that have favorable
physical structures, conducive to the
inter-action of the residents, such as in
the Henderson Residence College
(Winston, Connor, and Alexander).
"Morehead has good facilities, too,"
Whittington said, "and the closeness of
the dorms is also to their advantage."
In regard to the disbanding of King,
Whittington said she viewed it as a
positive step rather than a negative one.
"It is a step forward because the dorms
will be able to strengthen themselves. It's

than a weak college," she said.
Scott Residence College (Parker,
Teague, Avery) on the other hand, chose
the route of decentralization to better its
structure. According to Scott Governor
Allen Reep, this action was in answer to
the changing needs of the residents.
"Visitation really hurt the residence
college," Reep said in a recent interview.
"We had been having very low turnout
for college-sponsored activities because
the students don't need mass functions
Reep said a recent survey of Scott
residents revealed the needs of the
students had changed toward problems
with the University solved rather than the
old problems of trying to provide
adequate social activities.
"For instance," Reep said, "in Avery
we have installed a pool table, a piano,

Besides giving more funds back to the
individual dorms to use for uch
expenditures, the recent deconsolidation
of Scott will give autonomy back to the
dorms without doing away with the
present residence college concept.
Another reason for the maintenance of
the residence college structure is the
physical make-up of the college. Parker
Dormitory has a kitchen and a courtyard,
Teague has a social room and Avery hi.s a
coffee house. It is more pragmatic for the
residents to stick together to share these

Finance Committee hearings for the
1972-73 Student Government budget
will begin Monday, according to Marilyn
Brock, committee chairman.
Any organization wishing to receive
money from Student Government next
year should sign up for an interview with
the Finance Committee this week in Suite
C, Student Union.
"Expressing concern about ' the aura
of mystery and misinformation"
surrounding the budget proceedings,
Brock explained the way an organization
"If an organization wishes to receive
funds, it must first submit its proposed
budget to the student body treasurer to
be reviewed. If the group has been funded
before, he checks in the Student
Activities Fund Office to see how it has
been using its money.
"For example, if the organization has
SI 00 left in its 'office supply' category,
this would indicate the category should
contain less money in the new budget.
"On the other hand, if the club ran out
of money and had to receive additional
appropriations from Student Legislature
(SL), the treasurer knows it will need
more money next year.
"By the time this procedure is finished,
the treasurer has a good idea of how
much money a group really needs, so he
draws up a budget and submits it to
Finance Committee, along with notes he
took about the previous year.
"At this point the Finance Committee
holds budget hearings at which each
organization ma explain its budget.
After the hearings are over, the
committee thoroughly discusses each

elections, and the new student body
president is then able to present his

he said. "We've proved we can halt the
break-up by strengthening each individual
dorm and dorm government."
He points to the success of the Avery
experiment as proof:
"We've spent S 1 ,000 on the lobby. We
have volunteers who serve continuous
evening desk duty. We haven't had
furniture stolen, vandalism or any of the
other men's dorm problems. It is
successful because the residents have put

Morchead College (hverett, Aycock,
Stacy, Lewis, Graham, Cobb) may follow
the deconsolidation route as an answer to
the lack of interest in college activities.
Morchead governor Jim Wellons
describes the college as "fairly stable."
"Although many girls from Cobb don't
participate, they don't want to dissolve
the college," Wellons said.
