The desegregation plan ol the 16
campus UNC system will once again face
review by the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare when UNC
President William C. Friday unveils a
long-awaited program duplication study
Friday before the UNC board of
Governor's Committee on Educational
Planning, Policies and Programs.
Although the state's desegregation
plan was provisionally approved last
May, UNC is required to submit a study
to HEW by Dec. 3 1 outlining how it plans
to eliminate "educationally unnecessary
program duplication among traditionally
black and traditionally white institutions
in the same service area."
President Friday said he will not
comment on the contents of UNC's study
until the members of the Committee on
Educational Programs have seen the
HEW will initiate administrative
proceedings to cut off tederal aid to UNC
unless the state presents a program
duplication report which HEW's Office
of Civil Rights finds acceptable. HEW
this month rejected duplication reports
filed by Virginia and Georgia. Officials of
the Office of Civil Rights said the two
states failed to either merge neighboring
black and white schools or shift programs
to promote racial integration.

Georgia are continuing,", said Lou

and Winston-Salem Greensboro, which

North Carolina's situation is somewhat
different from those of Georgia and
Virginia, said John Sanders, UNC vice
president' for planning.
"We differ from them in that we have
more formerly black institutions, and
because we have what HEW call the
'flagship institutions' UN C-CH and
NCSU involved in the duplication
study," Sanders said.
"It's a difference in dealing with
marginal vs. principle .institutions,"
In rejecting the Georgia duplication
study, HEW called for mergers of Albany

"We want to make sure students

Whaley said until 1957, a liberal
arts education was held in high
esteem by both students and the
general public. It was in 1957 that the
Russians launched Sputnik, the first
space satellite. The ensuing
technology race led to an upgrading
of college science curricula and at the
expense of liberal arts curricula.
During the 1960s, Whaley said,
students demanded more relevant
courses and more choice in taking
courses. Whaley said job-oriented
courses like computer science
developed as a result. Students also
gained elective hours.
"Practical knowledge from
college-specialized education is soon
out of date (due to fast-changing
technology)," Whaley said.

For five years Paul Clay Sorum was a
member of the University history faculty.
He is now in the middle of his third year at
the UNC medical school. Sych a radical
change in vocation may be of some solace
to those students still quaking in the wake
of Senior Panic Week, but what
prompted this sudden tranformation?
Sorum failed to get tenure in 1975.
With his interest now turned toward
medicine, Sorum recently reflected on the
standards by which faculty members are
"Teacher evaluation in the classroom is
largely a matter of hearsay, as nobody sits
in," Sorum said. "For this reason,
teachers are now judged far more by their
research publications and the talks they
give outside the classroom."
Until 1973, students filled out
evaluation forms when faculty members'
tenures came up for review. Sorum said.
The teacher had to submit a set from one
class to the committee that was to decide
$80,000," Phillips said. "He won't make
any profit off that $80,000, and we only
risk losing $20,000. He'll cover any losses
"Purdie is interested in this sort of
thing. He's in the entertainment business
(Purdie owns a disco now under
construction on Franklin Street), and it
would be a very good thing for his
reputation to say he successfully
produced a concert of this magnitude."
Phillips said the CGC has enough
money in its general surplus tafinance its
share of the concerts. "According to Bill
Parmelee (student body treasurer), by
" April, we'll have about $180,000 in the
surplus. I've talked to several finance
committee members, and everyone we
talked to in fact everyone we talked to
on the council has been in favor of it."
Phillips said he also has the approval of v
Donald Boulton. vice chancellor for
Student Affairs. "Dean Boulton has been
supportive of the concerts, as long as
everything's legal, as has Bill Cobey
(athletic director). Tim Stump. Beta
Theta Pi social chairperson, has talked to
Cobey, and he (Cobey) said we could use
Kenan as long as the people from the
hospital said it was OK."
Student Government still may
encounter legal problems," however,
Phillips said. "I'm going to the state
attorney general's office tomorrow to talk
to Andrew Vanore., the legal counsel for
the University," Phillips said. "We're
going to take up a couple of contracts
we've drawn up and let him look them
over. We've got to make sure we can do
wake of graduate-student complaints
about an earlier recommendation, which
would have placed graduate students
under t he same visitat ion regulat ions now
applied to undergraduates. ,
RHA decided to reconsider the earlier
proposals largely due to a resolution by
the Craige Executive Council urging the
University administration to reject the
proposals, retain the current 24-hour
visitation policy for graduate students
and extend that policy to undergraduates
housed on the first two floors of Craige.
The Craige resolution was submitted to
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor; Donald
Boulton, vice chancellor for Student
Affairs; James Condie. director of
housing; Jim Osteen. assistant director
for residence life; and RHA President
Don Fox last Thursday.
After rejecting five proposals, the
board amended the recommendation to
say that: "Any policy established and
enforced be applied to all University
residence halls, with the recognition that
special situations exist at present and may
arise in the future which may be
considered for exemption."
Under this provision, Craige could be
considered a "special situation" because it
houses two floors of undergraduates-in
addition to graduate students.

effectively, read with understanding
and interpret correctly.
The group also is suggesting that
students be allowed to delay
declaring a major. Students now
declare their , major during their

open for the teacher to select the best class
evaluations, Sorum commented, it was
"Consequently there was a tremendous
pressure upon faculty members to have
books published," Sorum said. "This
meant that there was far less emphasis
upon the actual teaching and preparation
for classes than I would have liked."
Sorum's tenure was reviewed in 1975.
He had just had his book Intellectuals
and Decolonization in France accepted
"Timing is important," he said. "It is
vital to have the book accepted by a well
known publisher before the committee's
His 250-page work required six years
of writing, including a' year's research in
Europe, he said. To have the book

"The quality of bands we'll be able to
bring to the area will be much better," she
said. "With a more concentrated time
period for HRC, we feel all the way -around
the students will be getting a
better deal. Some might be a little upset
that Springfest will be taken, in part,
away from the HRC area, but I'm sure
once they hear about the big bands
coming, they'll be pleased."
Phillips said the concerts would be
advertised throughout the North
Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia
areas. "Hopefully this will be something
everyone can enjoy." he said. "Also
during the weekend is Apple Chill, and
hopefully we'll be able to have some kind
of carnival and let organizations set up
booths on Carmichael Field. There will
be a lot of things to do during the
weekend. Student tickets for each night
will be $4, and non-student tickets will be

good way to use some of the money from

The original recommendations of the
RHA committee studying visitation
included a provision that any policy
established and enforced be applied
equally to all undergraduate residence

amended last week by the RHA Board of

over the Northwestern Wildcats.

guards are supposed to have.
And don't forget John Virgil's 14

defensive play and the capable bench
play of Rich Yonakor, Ged Doughton

for Carojina's venture into the

If the attendance is at least 18,000 each
night, Phillips said, Purdie and the CGC
will break even. "There is a good chance
that if we get real good attendance both
nights, that is, around 25,000," Phillips
said, "we will make a profit that will go
into ensuring the same kind of concerts
will be held each year."
Phillips said plans are by no means
complete, but if no legal technicalities are
involved, UNC will have no problem

Dart Hemrickr governor of Craige, had
voiced concern last week that the
discrepancy in hours has caused conflicts
between graduate and undergraduate

Hemrick's proposal that both graduate

of many proposals made by members of
the board that were rejected.
"1 pay the same money to live in the

Northwestern to get a shot off. From
