The Interdormitory Council vot
ed unanimous approval to the first
objective in President Lewis
Brumfield's "two-point" program
The session was the last of the
semester for the council. .
In Brumfield's inaugural address '
a month ago, the former Cobb
Dormitory president stressed two
particular items that he intended
to effect during the next scholas
(1) Increased monetary support
for the dormitory social programs.
(2) An improved, yet "unfear-
ing" relationship with the admin-
Council members endorsed by
an affirmative motion the increas-
ed "monetary support" point Wed-
Last year the IDC cot $4000 out
of the sum paid for dormitory f
rents. Of this amount, $2000 went
to individual dormitories outright,
and $2000 wejito .eentrai lDC. of
fice for proportional distribution.
Thus Brumfield proposed giving
the entire $4000 to the individual
dormitory social programs withput
keeoing any funds for the IDC to
distribute at its discretion.
After the council had approved
Brumfield's idea, Raymond Taylor,
president of Old West Dormitory,
called it a "monumental step to
ward restoring dormitory rights."
According to Shelton Alexander,
chairman of the IDC Court, two of
the ei?ht dormitory residents tried
for participation in last month's
panty raid were convicted.
These two were put on "proba
tion," said Alexander, but hedid
n't say for how long. He said that
this would not Tvessf-ilv be the
"permanent" policy of the court
regarding panty raid violations.
The entire session was carried on
in an' informal air with little de
pendence on parliamentary proce
dure in the strict sense of the word.
According to Brumfield, this will
be the way that all meetings are
carried on during his administra
tion. His idea for partially dispen
sing witn parliamentary proce-
dure, he said, was so that council l partment conceded that "The is
members wouldn't hesitate "to I sues involved are substantial and
speak their minds." I they have not been passed on by
should be pointed out to the board.
"If considerable expansion is
contemplated, and especially if it
is planned to seek fluids for a
new building or to obtain author-
ization to construct one oh a self
liquidating basis, attention should
be given to the question of fiscal
control. I am not here attempting
to say what the ideal connection
between a student union and the
University administration is; but
the existing structural relationship
is not, in my opinion, administra
The Weaver memo concluded, ,

ered were to be carried out with

certain elementary safeguards to

Scales, 35, was charged with ad-'
vocating violent overthrow of the
government while heading the
Communist party's Carolinas dis
trict. He was sentenced to six
years April 22 at Greensboro, N.
C, after a two-week trial. Since
then he has been in prison at
Winston-Salem, N. C.
TO BE ARGUED
The appeal will be argued be
fore the U. S. 4th Circuit Court
of Appeals at Richmond. Warren
specified that his bail grant is
effective only until final action
is taken on the appeal.
When Scales was arrested at
Memphis, Tenn., last November,
bond was set at $100,000. This lat
er "was reduced to $35,000, posted
by his mother last Dec. 21.
Scales' attorney, David Rein of
Washington, urged Trial Judge
Albert V. Bryan of Alexandria,
Va., to let the defendant remain
at liberty under that $35,000 bond
after his conviction. Bryan re
fused. Rein then applied to Circuit
Judge Armistead Dobie, who also
refused to allow bail. The appli
cation then was brought before
Warren, wh0 hears such matters
from the 4th Circuit.

FOUR PACES TODAY
The student Legislature sliced
edges off the. total $1450 request
ed in bills last n'Sht and actually
handed out only $800.
There were no measures on the
Legislature agenda except bills
The dollar slices came from
bills requesting money for the
Carolina Forum and the Tarna
tion, campus humor magazine.
A bill asking for $200 for the
Carolina Handbook was defeated.
The only mtasure which met
with unconditional success was a
bill calling for $300 for the Goet
tingen student exchange program.
On this measure, the Legisla
ure underwrote itself for the full
amount. This means that the ex
change committee is supposed to
eek financial help from other
;ources, but if it is unsuccessful,
,hen the Legislature will assume
he entire $300 bill.
The session was spiked with
pressure groups representing the
agencies and publications seeking
The amount asked for by the
Carolina Forum $G00 was
cut exactly in half. The Legisla
ture finally granted $300 for debts
After arguement as to whether
or not the Tarnation was an offi
jial student publication, the re
luest -sought by that publication
.vas cut $150 from $350 asked
.o $200 granted.
Reubon Leonard, former Tar
nation editor, insisted that the
magazine was recognized by South
Building as being "official."
There were several other mea
sures the Legislature was slated
to review, but a mass exodus of
legislators coupled with heavy
absences, forced the body to ad
journ for lack of quorum.
The Legislature must meet in
a special session to complete the
