SLSio ' chdnrge extended legal fee
Student Legal Services will begin charg
ing all students at the end of this week a $5
fee to receive extended legal aid beyond an
initial consultation, Student Body Presi
dent Scott Norberg said last week.
SLS is a Student Government-funded
service that employs attorneys to handle
individual students' legal problems.
The experimental charge for the fall se
mester is a consequence of inflation that
has caused the value of the students' dol
lar to dropconsiderably, he said; and the
fee was needed to maintain the high qual
"Nobody should feel discouraged to
seek legal advice," Norberg said. "There
is no cost for legal advice." The $5 charge
is required if the attorney has to do re
search, write a letter, go to court, or take
any other additional legal action, Norberg
Each student who sought legal counsel
would receive a letter explaining why the
fee was being implemented and would
have a chance to give his opinion on the
fee, Norberg said.
' The fee will be reviewed during the nor
mal spring budget process.
. The fee would not be imposed on the
Student Government General Council, a
legal service offered for recognized cam
pus organizations, but a similar fee is un-
der consideration, Norberg said. Campus
organizations may be asked to pay a set
fee in order to use the service during the
year, he said. ,
The Student Government General
Council is being financed by the adminis
tration this year and is not yet under the
jurisdiction of Student Government.
Louisiana reaches tentative settlement
From the Associated Press
BATON ROUGE, La. A tentative
settlement of the Justice Department's
suit to further desegregate Louisiana's in
stitutions of higher education has been
reached, Gov. Dave Treen said Friday.
The suit was aimed partly at merging
programs at the various schools in
cluding Southern University, the nation's
largest predominantly black institution
and the predominantly white Louisiana
State University system.
If the settlement becomes final, it will
result in a consent decree giving the state
six years to spend millions of dollars to
upgrade the predominantly black institu
tions, Treen said, :
" The agreement was reached after in
tense negotiations only three days before
pre-trial motions were scheduled in
The Justice Department backed down
on its earlier demand that some
predominantly white universities give up
some programs to other schools, the
"I have insisted that any settlement
meet two conditions," said Treen. "First,
that no existing educational programs be
harmed at any of our institutions. This
condition has been met. Second, that new
programs be educationally sound. This
goal has also been achieved." '
Dr. Jesse Stone, president of Southern
University, said, "I practiced law for a
number of years and there was never a
compromise that I participated in that
everybody got everything they wanted. If
they did, it wouldn't be a compromise. I
think it is a good settlement and a good

From' Staff and Win Reports

ATLANTA The rift over control of television rights
between the College Football Association and the National
Collegiate Athletic Association widened Friday when the
CFA gave' its initial approval to a proposed contract with
NBC. - '
The CFA membership includes 17 independents and five
conferences the Atlantic Coast, Big Eight, Southeastern,
Southwest and Western Athletic.
The CFA, formed in 1977, includes most of the
traditional major football powers such as Oklahoma,
Nebraska, Alabama, Notre Dame, Penn State and
Pittsburgh, but does not include the Pacific-10 and Big 10
conferences which feature such traditional powers as
Southern California, UCLA, Ohio State and Michigan.
The 61-member CFA cast a split vote on the issue and
refused to annbunce the total or release a list of how each
It was learned from various sources within the CFA that
the vote was 33 for, 20 against, with five abstentions and
three other schools not voting because their credentials were
not in order.
"The board decided we would not announce how any
school voted," said Dr. Fred C. Davison, president of the
CFA and the University of Georgia. "That will become
public knowledge on Sept. 10."
Each CFA school has until Sept. 10 to reconsider its vote
Friday, deciding whether to participate in the $180 million
TV contract offered by NBC or opt for a $233 million
NCAA TV package worked out with ABC and CBS. Both
plans cover the four football seasons beginning in 1982.
An Associated Press story said that all ACC schools
voted for the CFA plan with the exception of North
Carolina which the story said abstained. UNC Athletic
Director John Swofford said he would wait until the Sept.
10 deadline to announce his vote. .. ..
"I don't feel it's in our best interests to make our vote
public," Swofford said. "Things could change. Everybody
involved is reconsidering it's vote. We need some things
evaluated at the institutional and conference level."
Swofford said that in the next Week he would be meeting
with UNC's faculty representative for athletics Ben Wilcox
and Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham about the matter.
"We have to look beyond football because of potential
ramifications for other sports," he said. "Our philosophy is
toward a very broad program and we don't want to
jeopardize those programs. I just want to do what is best
for North Carolina, but that is not easy."
The NCAA has threatened to sanction any member that
goes along with the CFA television plan and such action
could result in a lawsuit between the two parties.
"Any sanctions would be totally up to the Committee on
Infractions," said David Cawood, public relations director
of the NCAA. "In cases where a member deliberately
violates a rule, there could be a wide variety of penalties but
it probably would be probation in all sports."
. Cawood said he did not anticipate any final action by the
NCAA until after the 1981 football season, but he said
there coujd be action before the NCAA basketball
tournament next March if the CFA ultimately approves the
TV contract Sept. 1Q.j . ' jyy

members. "I'm-kind of interested in hearing an official
The vote in favor of the CFA contract has raised other
problems such as the televising of games between a school
who favored the contract and one that rejected it. Swofford
said CFA members that turned down the NBC proposal
were not obligated to the contract and may be excluded
from its provisions.
"If the vote stays the same to go with the CFA package,"
Swofford said, "NBC would have to make a decision as to
if the 33 schools were enough and that the right schools
were involved to make it valid. It's a complicated situation
that I hope doesn't end in court." .
Some of the traditional powers in college football,
including Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma and
Nebraska, were known to vote for the CFA package.
Opponents included Army, Navy and almost the entire
membership of the Western Athletic Conference.
Arthur A. Watsonr president of NBC Sports, said, "We
are extremely pleased that the CFA has ratified the four
year television contract with NBC Sports. We now. look
forward to moving ahead and finalizing many of the details
with the CFA by Sept. 10.
"Thus, together we can pursue our common goal of
revitalizing and enhancing college football's popularity by
implementing a well-conceived television scheduling
concept featuring prime time exposure," Watson added in a
Tom Hansen of the NCAA said, "I believe it shows
they're , going to have a hard time implementing a viable
national TV program."
Asked if it mattered which schools voted for it Friday,
Hansen said, "It does to some degree. I do not think all the
maj or ' majors .art : endorsing the program. . . .
don't ".'know, who voted each way, it's hajd-tooe precise."
A s6esmah for CBS SportsTftew York said, "The
vote today Waslhbtxinexpecov We are in no way convinced
that this is; thefinaldresoIution of a complicated situation."
We aWaiMhaf resolution, fully anticipating that we will be
broadcasting 'cpQege football in 1982."
"Nothing liasbeen resolved," said Donn Bernstein, a
spokesman for . ,ABC. Sports. "It is wait-and-see and
evaluate. The 21-day period is very vital. But we definitely .
do not envision,- uVany way, shape or form, the loss of
anything at this time."
Ultimate approvaL of the CFA-NBC package could lead
to a split within, the NCAA, which possibly would expel
those CFA members going along with the plan.
Cawood says he doubts that would happen and that to
his knowledge no school has ever been expelled from the
NCAA, a move than would require a two-thirds vote of the
more than 900 NCAA members and conferences.
As far as a rift with the NCAA is concerned, Davison
said, "We're not thejbnes rattling the sabres. Sabre rattling
has always been on the other side of the fence."
Davison also said he did not regard it as a confrontation
with the NCAA.
"I intend to stay in the NCAA," said Davison, who said
that Georgia voted for the CFA-NBC package. "I don't
think we are in violation of the NCAA constitution and by-
Asked if he foresaw a lawsuit, Davison said, "It'll be up
to the NCAA to take it to court." .

By GERRY COHEN
Special to The Daily Tar Heel
Several service changes greeted return
ing Chapel Hill and Carrboro bus riders
last week. In Carrboro, especially, several
changes have been made because of heavy
ridership last year on the C and J bus
The C route has been moved from Fi
delity Street to Jones Ferry Road, which
means that both the C and J routes will
serve Old Well, Greenbelt and University
During morning rush hour, that area
will have bus service every nine minutes.
In addition, extra buses will be available
in case of overloads on the J route.
Both routes will also have evening ser
vice, with the C route junning until 11:30
and the J route until midnight. .
Shared ride taxi service in Carrboro
will cover only Estes Park Apartments.
In Chapel Hill, morning service on the
D route will run every 20 minutes instead
of every 30, as last year.
In the afternoon, extra service will be
gin at 1 -p.m; instead of 3 p.m. The D
route serves Foxcroft and Pinegate apart
ments. The A route has been rerouted to serve
parts of Piney Mountain Road. The G
bus will have midday service every 35 min
utes instead of every-70 minutes and the K
route has been eliminated. The evening
FL bus will run until midnight instead of
stopping at 10 p.m. 1
Service changes were approved by the
Chapel Hill Town Council and the Carr
boro Board of Aldermen in June. Service
in both towns is operated by the Chapel
Hill municipal government.
