The Summer Campus Govern
ing Council voted Monday night
to have a campus party, pay for
.the training of a Notary Public
for Student Legal Services and
recommend that the CGC look
into having a separate budget for
summer session student fees.
The Summer CGC allocated
$545 for a campus party Friday
afternoon, August 3, but it
remains to be decided if alcohol
will be served. There are ques
tions about the legality of using
mandatory student fees to pur
chase alcohol and the University's
liability if alcohol is provided by
Student Body President Paul
Parker and Summer CGC
Speaker Wyatt Closs met with
Vice Chancellor and Dean of
Student Affairs Donald Boulton
Wednesday to determine the
possibility of a party in which
Student Government provides
They decided to consult the
University Attorney Susan
Ehringhaus during the next few
days and reach a conclusion by
the time the CGC met July 30,
Student Government would
make plans for both a party with
and without alcohol, and go with
whichever one is deemed accep
table, he said.
"There's a definite possibility
we can have a party with alcohol
on campus (probably in the Pit
or on Connor Beach); that plan
has met with no opposition as of
yet it's just that we need more
time to determine where the
University might be liable if
someone served alchol was hurt
or got a D.U.I,"he said.
Parker added that the Univer
sity's lack of a stated alcohol
policy has contributed to the
problems about this party.
The Council also allocated $44
to Student Legal Services to pay
to have its new secretary trained
as a notary public.
Dorothy Bernholz, SLS direc
tor, said a notary was needed to
register students to vote, notarize
papers prepared by the SLS and
notarize other papers, such as car
title transfers, for students.
In response to concern about
whether summer school students
receive the full benefit of their
student fees, the Council passed
a resolution asking the CGC to
consider having a separate budget
for summer school fees.
The resolution also requested
that the CGC look into the proper
procedures for spending summer
Recently, questions were raised
about whether the CGC last
spring followed guidelines agreed
to by Student Government and
Student Affairs in 1973.
The guidelines require that all
summer school student fees be
kept separate from fall and spring
semester fees and that all summer
fees be spent on summer school
For the party, the Summer
CGC originally considered ice
cream. However, after debate, the
Council decided more people
would attend and enjoy a party
with beer and a disc jockey.
A lot more people would come
into campus for beer than for ice
cream, council member John

63 universities to participate
Computer network to speed communication
By ANDY MILLER

A new computer system will link UNC
in an information network with 62 other
universities, said Student Body President
Parker, who is also president of the
Association of American University Stu
dents, said the installation of the system
is the result of a two-year effort by the
AAUS to facilitate communication among
the association's 63 member institutions.
The computer network would be an
electronic mail service, quickly providing
students with information about research
questions and about policies and govern
ments at other schools, he said.
"It will cut down on waste and dupli
cation," Parker said. "Let's say you wanted
to start to set up a student employment
service. Now you could index the infor
mation by computer and find another
school that has already done it. That vay
you wouldn't be starting at ground zero.
"Everything that you would want to do
has been done somewhere else at another
school," he said.
The data base, Parker said, will be
funded by a two-year $180,000 grant from
UNI-COLL Corp., which is based in
Parker said the present communication
system was slow and costly because it was
done by mail, long-distance or by files.
"This way, for the price of a telephone
call, you can send messages, letters, and
answer research questions," he said.
UNC will be one of five institutions that
will use the computer during the trial period
beginning Aug. 1, Parker said. The others
are Brown University, Harvard University,
the University of Minnesota and the
University of Pennsylvania. The remaining
58 universities will be connected on Sept.
1, he said.
UNC and Duke University are the
AAUS members in North Carolina.
Parker said other student organizations,
such as the American Students Association
and the United States Students Associa
tion, did not provide proper communica
tion links between university students
because they are partisan, political groups.
"We (the AAUS) do not have an interest
in politics," he said. "We just want to
conduct research and provide
The computer network will assist the
AAUS on research projects such as its
comparative study of alcohol policy on
campuses, a project the association has
undertaken with a $4,000 grant from
Metropolitan Life Co.
Parker said the AAUS is also conducting
a comparative analysis of university
student health services. These services,
according to Parker, vary greatly from
university to university in what they offer
"Some are definitely better than others,"
Other universities have been interested
in the rape prevention escort service at
UNC, Parker said, and with the data base
they will be able to access that information
Parker said the AAUS and the computer
network have expanded to include univer
sities in foreign countries.
The association is negotiating a contract
with the Executive Service Corp., a group
of retired executives who may use the data
base to help set up leadership classes on
college campuses, Parker said.
