Termination of faculty due to financial
exigencies or program changes and joint
appointments of faculty was debated
Monday afternoon at a special meeting of
the General Faculty.
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor called the
meeting to be advised on proposed revisions
to Chapter six of the U niversity Code, which
deals with academic freedom and tenure.
This section was recently revised by the
Board of Governors of the University of
North Carolina system. The board directed
each campus within the system to make its
own version of the guidelines, following the
outline provided by the governors.
An ad hoc Tenure Study Committee,
headed.by J. Dickson Phillips, completed its
report Oct. 14.
Phillips said the 15-member committee's
proposals on discharge of tenured faculty is
designed to force the University to consider
every alternative to actual firing of faculty.
"What is being done that is new," Phillips
said of the committee proposals, "is to work
out a procedure for termination when that
must come about."
He said that when a financial cutback is
made, it is not always clear whether it must
involve faculty firings.
Under committee proposals, the
chancellor, rather than the department
heads, would trigger any action on financial
cutbacks. He would then outline options for
dealing with the problem and submit them

The UNC Board of Trustees has been
waiting on a recommendation from its
utilities committee for nearly two months
regarding the long-debated sale of two
University-owned utilities to Duke Power
and Southern Bell.
The trustees will apparently continue
waiting until at least Feb. 13, 1976, despite
the fact that the UNC Utilities Study
Commission (the Church Commission)
recommended Sept. 12 that the trustees
approve the sale contracts.
The sales, of the Chapel H ill electric utility
to Duke Power for $16 million and the town
telephone utility to Southern Bell for $24
million, must be approved by the trustees,
the Governor's Council of State and the
State Utilities Commission before they are
The telephone utility sale must also be
approved by the Federal Communications
The utilities committee was expected to
make its recommendation at the Oct. 12
trustees meeting, but committee chairperson
Ralph Strayhorn said then, "We (the
committee) feel that the matter is of such
importance that we would like a little time
before we make a recommendation.
Therefore, we have no report at this time."
Board of Trustees Chairperson, Henry
Foscue, said two days later that the trustees
would probably meet in November tc,
consider the sale, even though the next,
meeting was scheduled for Dec. 12.
But Strayhorn, of Durham, said then that
his committee probably would not be ready
to report in November, and the extra
meeting was never held.
Since then, Strayhorn's committee has
met only once a low-key gathering two
weeks ago in High Point. The meeting
"amounted to kind of a social thing,"
committee member Charles Jonas Jr., of
Strayhorn said Sunday, "I think it (the
committee's work) is coming along all right."

for consideration to a committee composed
of and representing the faculty.
Through a give-and-take procedure, the
faculty committee, the chancellor and the
involved departments would try to find
solutions to the problem, short of
The chancellor would be responsible for
final decisions on any curtailments, such as
the amount of money that must be pared
from a department's budget and "specific
criteria the department chairmen would use
in making terminations," Phillips said.
A review procedure, similar to that used to
reevaluate non-reappointments of faculty,
would be open to fired faculty and for
terminations resulting from program
changes within departments or schools. No
terminations have ever been made due to
financial problems, Phillips said.
A six-member minority report on joint
appointments, when a faculty member is
appointed to a field other than his primary
field, was issued with the majority tenure
The study committee recommended two
options for a faculty member appointed to a
secondary appointment: he may be
appointed at the same rank he holds in the
primary field or be appointed at a lesser rank
with a prefix to his title (such as adjunct,
clinical or research associate).
Representatives of public health,
medicine, pharmacology and dentistry
argued at the meeting that the prefixed,
disparate rankings would hinder recruitment
of new faculty since other institutions do not
have prefixed secondary ranks.
Phillips said, "It all comes down to a title."
The minority faculty fear "the odium of a
second-class appointment," he said.
Chancellor Taylor said, "In my judgment,
havingstudied it (joint appointments) two
times (by tenure committees) the
appropriate way is to leave the matter, at
least for the time being."
But Jonas said Sunday, "As a committee
we still haven't sat down and taken up the
question that we will have to decide this
The committee will not meet again until
the weekend of the'next trustees meeting on
Dec. 12. "It appeared that it would be just
impossible to meet prior to then," Strayhorn
It has always been hard for the committee
to find a time and place to meet so all
members could attend, he said.
Strayhorn said he "really wouldn't want to
speculate" about the chances of the
recommendation being ready in December.
Jonas said Sunday, "My guess is that it

ready in December, the trustees will not be
able to take action on the sale until its next

Disunity in the Black Student Movement
and disagreement over administrative
procedures were the major reasons for BSM
Chairperson Lester Diggs' resignation, he
The resignation, filed amidst an
accumulation of grievances voiced by BSM
members over the organization's operating
procedures, was expected to be acted on by
the BSM general body Monday night. The
general body must approve the resignation
for it to be final.
"The general body of the BSM seemed to
be on the brink of disunity," Diggs said,
explaining that the disunity seemed to
concern criticisms over the organization's
leadership and his in particular.
He also said there were "major differences
relative to the administrative procedure of
the organization," but would not elaborate.
