Dr. James d. Condie, director of
University housing, released the details
of changes in the status of three campus
dormitories at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday,
ending, almost three weeks of
speculation over what has become a
major campus controversy.
Under the new plans for the fall
academic semester, which were
recommended by Condie and approved
by Dean of Student Affairs Donald A.
Boulton, Ruffin will become an all
women's dormitory, with handicapped
students housed on the first floor, suite-by-suite
coed living will be permitted on
the fourth floor of Morrison dormitory, .
and residents of single rooms in James
dormitory must consolidate or pay $75
in increased fees for the semester.
Boulton had assured the Daily Tar
Heel that Condie would announce the
details no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday,
although Condie was unavailable for
comment throughout the day prior to
the DTH's 11 p.m. press deadline.
Boulton had said that all
recommendations had been made and
that the only remaining problem was to
"tie up the loose ends."
All four floors of Ruffin will house
female " students Condie said, with
special facilities for female handicapped
students on the first floor. Special
bathrooms and kitchens will be built for
the handicapped residents, he said.
The male students presently living in
Ruffin will be given priority over other

UNC schools offer variety
of summer pro grains abroad.
by Henry Farber
If you're thinking about studying abroad
this summer, you might consider some of the
programs sponsored by the member
institutions of UNC. The program directors
are readily accessible, credit transfer hassles
are minimized, and often you end up
traveling with classmates you didn't even
know were going. ;
Outlined here is the basic information.
For the first time, Professors Gerald Unks
and Christopher Armitage are taking
around 40 students to London, England to
study education and English for six weeks
that the administration delay any budget
cuts and open the budget to public scrutiny.
In a letter addressed to Jeff Talmadge,
then president of the Associated Students of
Duke University (ASDU Duke's student
government), Sanford said "these
suggestions generally correspond with my
ideas of government."
Sanford said no budget-cutting will take
place before the May meeting of the school's
Board of Trustees: Turner criticized
Sanford, however, because he refused to
open the budget books to the general public.
"Mr. Sanford my think he's got the
situation pretty well in.hand'but we are
going to make sure that illusion does not stay
with him for very long," Turner said,
announcing a schedule of future activities
decided upon Tuesday night.
"We will take some kind of action
Thursday (today) at noon," Turner said, but
refused to elaborate further.
Turner said MSA will continue to picket
today and when the Board of Trustees meets
informally Friday. He also said MSA is

Marion: insurance lobby
hindering auto rates bill
by Tim Pittman
North Carolina Sen. George Marion, D
Surry, co-sponsor of Senate Bill 55, which
could end age and sex discrimination in auto
insurance rates, explained the bill's
legislative roadblocks to approximately 25
members of the UNC Young Democrats
Club Tuesday night.
Marion cited the insurance lobby as the
major roadblock facing his bill.
Marion's proposed bill, if it passes without
amendment, would establish insurance rates'
based on driving records. The bill would
directly affect males under 25 and drivers
over 65, now forced to pay higher rates based
on their age without regard to driving
Marion is also sponsoring a bill to limit
the number of out-of-state students
attending state-supported schools.

American officials in Saigon stressed that
the halt in civilian flights to Phnom Penh
would not affect the Berlin-style U.S. airlift
to the stricken capital.
' Pentagon sources said the U.S. carrier
Okinawa with helicopters and 1 ,500 Marines
aboard has been ordered into the Gulf of
Thailand as a precaution to evacuate
Americans from Phnom Penh if necessary.
Pentagon sources said some 400 to 500
Americans are still in Phnom Penh and
stressed no evacuation has been ordered yet.
Most markets and shops in Phnom Penh
were closed for the ninth consecutive day for
fear of food riots. Merchant Ha Nean said at
his central market stall he had rice for sale
but "the situation will get worse." Residents
reported, however, that rice was available
only on the black market and only to those
who could pay stiff prices.
In Washington, McCloskey, R-Cal..

visited Cambodia last week expressed fears
of a bloodbath if the surrounded capital city
