Dorm Women's I
Coeds competing for the one l
j' ear seat open in Dorm Women I
answered the following questions:
(1 Do you think class officers
have accomplished anything?
2 How do you feet about mixed
honor councils?
Linda Biser, SP candidate from
this district replied:
! '"From what 1 hear of past class
oltlcers' achievements. I am in
clined to believe there is an in
crease of class officer activity this
year. The accomplishments are
still forthcoming since the projects
were of the long term variety, for
example the $25,000 scholarship
program under the combined el
forts of the sophomores, freshman
and juniors. The freshman officers
have organized a cabinet and have
long range plans unOer discussion.
"If the students would like to
have class officers who unite the
ciass in accomplishment, it is the
responsibility ol the student voters
to elect those whom they deem
capable, interested, ami those hav
Mifficieiit time to apply themselves
;aid fulfill their office duties.
"At present, 1 think a comoina
tion of men and women's honor
council would pose more problems
than it would solve. Most of the
women of District 1 feel extra em
barrassment would prevent explan
i.tions of some situations thereby
hindering justice."
Anne Terry, UP candidate, stated
her answered as follows:
"Yes, 1 do think class ollieers
have accomplished something this
year, and have proven their worth
in campus. The position of class of
ficer can be neglected an any ol
l:ce can be, but this year the class
officers have shown that the class
olticers are not only holding an
important position, but rendering a
needed service to their class.
"I do not think a mixed honor
council would or could prove as ef
lective as the separate councils
that we now have. I believe wo
men are considerably more cap
Ule of judging women than men
would be. Women are much better
fitted to the job. simply because
they have liveo uiiuer the women's
regulations, ami have certain in
sight into cases that men could not
possibly have. Similarly it is just
as hard for a women to understand
a man's case. Simply from this
standpoint alone I consider it al
mast self evident why a mixed hon
or council would not prove as ef
fective as the type we now hae.
Dorm Women's II
Candidates for the one-year
legislature seat open in Dorm Wo
men's II expressed their views on:
1 How oo you feel about NSA?
2 How do you think editors of
Ihe Daily Tar Heel and the Yack
ety Yack, as well as the head
cheerleader, should be chosen?
Naney Baker, UP nominee for
this seat, stated:
"In my opinion, the National
Student Association is an organiza
tion about which too little is known
in thus campus. In discussing the
NSA with several students, I found
that few of them actually knew
osything at all about the aims and
functions of this organization. In
the past our student legislature has
appropriated $1,270 per year to this
organization . . . $l,ooo to send iitu
aent council representatives to the
annual NSA congress and $155 a
year in dues. I believe that the
student body should be better in
formed as to the use of this much
of their money.
"A majority of the NSA's aims
and functions seem to me to be
very worthwhile. However, a great
deal of controversy has surrounded
a few of the NSA's policies. I be
lieve that these' policies should be
fully investigated and the results
published in The Daily Tar Heel."
"As the head cheerleader," she
continued, "and editors of The
Daily Tar Heel and Yackety Yack
represent and serve the campus as
a whole, I believe that the men who
hold these offices should be elected
by the entire student body. I feel
that the student body would thus
be more willing to back these lead
,ers. However, the candidates for
these three offices should be
screened by a bi-partisan board
and the field narrowed to two or
three candidates for office each
J ear.
"I believe that this would help
to inusre highly qualified and ex
perienced candidates.
"To help remove these offices
from partisan politics I would ad
vocate that these candidates affil
iate with neither political party,
but run independently."
Betty Jeari Baxter, SP candidate
from DW II, answered:
"The Daily Tar Heel and the
Yackety Yack belong to the stu-

The most important thing is seeing
that a new student union is built as
soon as possible.
"Class officers, up until the very
recent past, have accomplished lit

believe for this reason the students
should have a direct voice in who
runs these publications. This voice
is obtained by the election of the
editors. With a Bi-Partisan en
dorsement we are supposed to be
assured of qualified candidates.
"Through voting the student as
sumes a responsibility to the pub

"On the UNC campus student
government is advocated, therefore
the editors if The Daily Tar heel
and the Yackety Yack should be

of the most important things is the

therefore should be elected. He
must have the support of the stu

the student approves. The majority

Concerning NSA, Miss Baxter
raid." 1 am in favor of thus or
ganization and its purposes.
Through the interaction of repre
sentatives from 300 member col
leges and universities in the Unit
ed States, the voice of the student
i.v heard. The NSA is an outlet for
this voice. During the year in
campus and regional meetings, tl 3
opinions and ideas of the students
arc expressed.
"The NSA Congress held in the
summer and the regional meetings
provide a meeting place for camp
us leaders to discuss student ac
tivities and problems. In this shar
ing of opinions, ideas and problems
a leader gains information and
ideas and solutions. ' But many
times what one learns cannot be
measured or commuicated. This in
tangible information helps the lead
er and results in making better
campus organizations for us.
"NSA. acting as the student
representative, presents the stu
dent opinion to many organizations.
For example, last summer NSA
was asked for the student opinion
of the Federal Student Loan Bill:
"The money appropriated NSA
by the Student Legislature should
go to pay delegates expenses tc
NSA Congress but some of the
money should be used to explain
NSA to the students. The work
of the local committee should be
publicized. The student must be
aware of NSA and its work. This
can be accomplished by a new em
phasis on our campus for NSA.
"I favor NSA because it is a
means of student communication
to the world; through it bur student
government receives' help and in
formation; our leaders have a
chance to learn and gain from oth
er campus leaders and their exper
iences; it is concerned with stu
dents as students."
Town Men's II
Candidates running for the two
1-year seats in Town Men's II re
plied to the following:
1) Do you feel the "liberal" cut
system adopted last year has been
beneficial:
2 Should the fines for campus
parking violations go to Student
Government or to the Town of
Chapel Hill?
Jack Lawing, UP candidate from
this district, replied: concerning
the "liberal" duty system, "Yes,
on the whole it has been very bene
ficial. However, the dean's list stu
dents have been robbed of some in
centive by certain instructors who
refuse to allow them the former
privileges of such students. Per
haps this situation could be remed
ied and a policy be started where
by each student is allowed a min
imum number ol cuts, regardless of
the individual instructor's opinion.
Lawing feels that fines should
not go exclusively to either. "Most
should go to student government,
but a certain amount should go to
the town in return for services
rendered as by the fire depart
ment." Peyton Hawes, the other UP can
didate in TM II, said:
"During the past year, the theme
of the Student Legislature appears
to have been liberalism. The Uni
versity is based on this principle,
but it can be carried to a danger
cus point if it is not handled with
care. In the case of the revised
cut system, I feel that this is a
sound step. Likewise I realize that
there are members of the Univers
ity who are not mature enough to
use this freedom wisely. These
people are evidently not interested
in an education and cutting without
discretion will quickly eliminate
these people. ' 1
Hawes continued, "The parking
problem in Chapel Hill is indeed
one of the most serious problems
confronting the University, but I
personally do not believe the power
to alleviate this problem lies with
Student Government; therefore, 1
believe that the campus parking
lines should be turned over to the.
University and put into a fund for
constructing parking areas. A stu
dent committee should have a voice
in working out this problem. I fail
to see the justification of the Town
of Chapel Hill receiving the fines,
since the University polices and en
forces the majority of the campus
parking areas." "
Roy II. Park, Jr., Independent
candidate from this area, stated:
"Under the -'liberal' cut system,
professors may regulate cut rules
lo their own teaching styles. I don't
believe they have ever been ecsta
tic over lecturing to snores, coughs,
hangovers, and those said 'wish-1-were-at-the-beach'
Saturday morn
ing laces.
"Physical presence is not mental
presence. Quizzes include lecture
material. Excessive cutting shows
up on marks. As students, most of
us know our capabilities and should
be out of the supervision stage.
This is an 'institution of learning,'
not an 'institution of attendance.'
"Under this system, we all gain.
And a little more slack in the reins
won't cause the horse to bolt."
Park feels thcl of the 2 choices,
fines should go to Student Govern
ment. "Through it, the lines
could be properly used to further
student organization and opportun
ity. "But if it doesn't reach back to
all the students in some way, there
is a third option the University.
Fines should then be used for wage
payments, improvements, expaas
ion and, logically, more accessible
parking spaces."
Town Men's 111
The questions posed candidates
for the seaLs open in Town Men's
III were:
(1) If in the last extremeity, stu
dents were unable to get a student
union would you be in favor of a
full student self-liquidation plan for
a student union?
(2) Do you think class officers
have accomplished anything?
Frank Eagles, UP candidate for
one of the three 1-year Legislature
seats in this district replied: con
cerning a student union, "No! I
feel that a student union is needed
here at the University but I do not
feel that the advantages of this stu
dent union would outweigh the dis
advantages of the financial burden
that would be placed on the indi
vidual student.
About class officers, Eagles stat
ed, "I think that the accomplish
ments of the class officers speak
for themselves?"
Gordon Street, another UP candi
date from this district said:
"There is a very definite need lor
a new and larger student union
here on the UNC campus. We need
more space in which student or
ganizations may carry on their ac
tivities. This need is seen in that
groups have had to hold their meet
ings ,in the TV Room and the
Rendezvous Room of Graham
Memorial. Even greater is the need
lor more recreational facilites on
c'ampus lor the students. In com
parison to other schools we are far
behind here. If in the next few
3 ears, after all other possible
means have been thoroughly ex
plored, there is no other way, then
1 feel that we should resort to a
self-liquidating plan. I realize that
this Will work a hardship on the
University and the students, but I
feel that the need will warrant
such a move.
"In the past year the question
of whether or not to have class of
ficers has come to the fore
ground several times. The principle
argument against them is that they
have done nothing to justify the
existence of such positions. This
argument has been proven untrue
this year. The Freshmen Class
officers have done fine work in co
operation with the Freshman For

firmly believe in self autonomy for UNC fraterni

prerogative.
