Special to The Daily Tar Heel
RALEIGH, May 10 The fate of suggested Saturday classes
at the University at Chapel Hill will be decided here Monday.
Informed sources at Chapel Hill predicted the proposal will
be scotched by the Executive Committee.
The Executive Committee of the UNC Board of Trustees
will meet and probably will hear the issue of the extra class
' day for Carolina. Chancellor Robert B. House is expected to make
a report compiled from an extensive survey taken in Chapel
Hill dormitories and fraternity and sorority houses on how
UNC students spend their spare time.
Saturday classes have been proposed by several trustees to
stop the "weekend exodus." Should it pass the Executive Com
mittee, the proposal would have to come before the full board
at its meeting in Chapel Hill Monday, May 26.
