Speaker Jack Stevens chastized
the two parties verbally for their
poor representation. He acknow
ledged that the Yackety Yack
beauty contest was probably the
reason for some of, the absences,
but reminded the legislators that

the end of each year. ' . , .
" (2) The payment, of $60 for a

branchof the National Student
Association with the Yackety Yack
for a page in last years annual.
A bill asking the Legislature to
give the Campus Recreation Co
ordination Council $20 evoked a
slight ripple : of objection. And
Jim Exum (UP) amended the bill
cutting the figure down to $10. It
was then passed nearly unanimous
ly. A bill "to insure order and sta
bility in student government fi
nances" by making each organiza
tion receiving appropriation get
money,' and prohibiting said brganj
ization from spending any more
money than? the amount originally
allotted, was tabled by the body:
The bill, in all probability; will
come up for discussion again at
next Thursday; night's meeting.
' The most discussion of the night
was aroused by the introduction of
a bill calling for the establishment
of a committee to "rewrite" , the
student Constitution. The bill was
introduced out of Ways and Means'
Committee by Chairman Jim
Exum. - ,
Exum said that the Constitution
as it presently stands is full of
"ambiguities" and bad "phrasing."
"The Board of Trustees," he said
"will never approve it as it is."
The Constitution has never been
officially sanctioned by the Board
Most of the legislators seemed
to lagree with Exum, but disagreed
as to the method of revision. Jim
Holmes (SP) voiced the opinion
that the calling together of , such
a. committee, might not be consis
tent with the amendment stipu
lation stated in the present Con
stitution. The bill was then tabled
after Larry McElroy, SP f loorlead
er, amended it by striking out the.
word "rewrite," and adding the
words "to suggest amendments" to
the present Constitution.

By JAMES NICHOLS
Don Fowler; president of the
student body, said, yesterday the
"strongest possibility" 'of . easing
the campus parking problem is
the establishment of an off -campus
storage and parking lot.
His comment was in reference to
a report released yesterday by
Layton McCurdy, chairman of the
Student Traffic Committee, which
contained the committees recom
mendations for facilitating stu
dent parking on campus.
The report read,. "The commit
tee is definitely opposed to any
restriction of student ownership
of cars. This would be a destruct
ive blow to 'Carolina tradition."
ie Racks, Socials
Three items came up for dis
cussion at the Interdormitory
Council meeting Wednesday night.
The first was the matter of
post-game social functions spon
sored by the council after all
home games. President- Lewis
Brumfield termed, the dance held
last Saturday afternoon in Cobb
dorm's basement as highly "suc
cessful," and announced that a
similar social had been planned
after the Notre Dame game. f
Brumfield announced as. the se
cond item for discussion the ac
quisition of tie racks and towel
racks for each dormitory. The
council had been working on the
project since last year. Now ac
cording to an announcement. from
J.S. Bennett, director of opera
tions, the racks will be installed in
the near future.
The third item which was talked
over at the meeting was the
forthcoming election day. Bill Mc
Lean, Election Board chairman,
told the dormitory presidents and
IDC representatives it would be
their responsibility to conduct
balloting in their respective dor

According. to the weather man,
the temperature in the moun

TOWARDS UNIFYING CAMPUS:
.rota p Starts Coord i nation
By MARY ACKERMAN
The newly-formed Coordinat
ing Committee, composed of re
presentatives from each student
government organization, met
for the first time this week.
"The unification and coordi
nation of campus organizations '
is the goal of the committee,"
Chairman Miss Joan Palmer said
the group, "The purpose of. this
. meeting' Js to-discuss this pro
blem and begin work on solu
tions to it." , . , .
Student body .President Don
Fowler opened : the meeting by
endorsing the new. group. "The
purpose of t h i s Coordinating
Committee 'is very good," he
said. "To achieve, any purpose
in student government, there
must be coordination. Through
this coordinating body we hope
to raise student government to
a more mature and responsible
Student union Director Jim
Wallace then stated what he
termed the major problem -with
which the committee, must deal
to achieve its goal. "There is a :
definite need for such coordina
tion," he said. "Our student gov
ernment is becoming a peripher
al organization and is in grave
danger of losing the central po
. sitions that it should have on
"Student government and stu-'
dent union " organizations occupy
a much less than ' central posi
tion in the minds and ; lives of
the average students, even
though there are a larger num
ber of students in student' gov
ernment and more money is be
ing used for it than ever bef
fore," Wallace continued. '
' "There are two reasons for
this; one is precisely the larger
body of students that.are to be
coordinated, and second is the
fact that campus organizations
and 'groups have differentiated
into component partsUnto se
iparate schools anpi individual
groups that have little or no con
nections with each other.
"Unaware of the real purposes
of the student union and the '.
student government, the student
doesn't realize the benefits pro
vided for him by them," Wallace
said. "The central problem lies
in the failure of getting to the
students the real knowledge of
what the union is doing for
them. It is the problem, of com
municating successfully with the
student," he added.
Report from each organiza-
' taon representative stating the
purpose and officers" of the or
ganization .' followed.-..
1 , Miss Palmer opened a discus
sion on organizational coordina
tion with a statement outline
of the' two major problems. "A
new student union building, one
located in the center of the cam
pus, and large enough to pro
vide adequately for the needs of
the growing body, is needed,"
"How to successfully com
municate with the students and
promote . their interest and en
thusiasm in the student union
constitutes the second prob
lem," Chairman Palmer said.
. Comments and suggestion
:from committee members fol?
lowed. According to Jerry Mar
tin, -National Student Assn. re
presentative, students have sub
stituted other things for primary
consideration in place of student
union activities- without realiz
ing it. "Such things as the Cobb
Dorm social room, the Mono
gram Club and the fraternities
dnd sororities tend to let stu
dents forget the purpose and po
tentialities of the student union,
In connection with communi
cating with the students, Louis
Brumfield said, "The presence
of a Daily Tar Heel staff mem
ber at all meetings of all organi
zations to which the reporter
was regularly assigned would
do much to promote communica
tion." Miss Palmer said she hoped
each representative would dis
cuss the problems with his or
ganization and bring further sug
gestions and plans to the next
meeting. "We realize what is to
be done," she said. "N o w we
must find a way to do it."
The Coordinating Committee
will meet monthly in GM.
in a discussion with the Campus
Chest Committee yesterday.
