The Orange County Board of
Commissioners today averted an
imminent financial crisis in the
Chapel Hill school system by un
animously approving a budget re
vision based mainly on teacher
salary supplement cuts.
The action wiped out an antici
pated school board operating de
ficit of nearly $27,000. Under state
law, indvidual board members
could have been held personally
liable for the shortage.
School board chairman Dr.
Kempton Jones told the commis
sioners the revision not only as
sures a balanced budget, it also
will result with one exception
in the board being able to meet
all its financial obligations for the
remainder of the fiscal year.
The exception, he said, is a flat
$200 across-the-board cut in teach
er's salary supplements, including
that of school superintendent Dr.
But, Jones added, every effort
will be made to restore the cuts
from the revised budget's expand
ed contingency fund and from any
other funds which become avail
able, including any in the next
To- further balance its budget,
Jones said, the board decided to
release five pregnant teachers for
whom replacements will not be
hired, and made minor reductions
in other areas, which had already

A UNC sophomore was sen
tenced by the Honor Council to in
definite probation after he pleaded
guilty to attempting to defraud the
Chapel Hill Telephone Co.
The trial for the honor code of
fense was held Tuesday, Jan. 30,
during the semester break. The full
council of 14 including Chairman
George Campbell was present for
the open trial.
Junior Mike Lawler, a member
of the Honor Council, had disquali
fied himself from the council to
act as the sophomore's defense at
The sentence of probation forbids
the student to represent the Univer
sity in any capacity, belong to any
activity or student organization, or
to participate in intramural sports.
The sophomore pleaded guilty but
asked the council for clemency.
A representative of the attorney
general's staff read a statement by
a telephone official which said that
on January 20, the sophomore plac

According to the statement, the
operator checked the Washington,
D. C. number to which the call was
charged and told the student he
had given her a wrong number.
The student admitted that he then
began an "extended bluff," giving
fictitious names for his parents m
After some time, the operator, at
the student's request, charged the
call to the party in Cambridge. A
few minutes later a representative
of the telephone company drove a
truck to the house from where the
call was placed and called the resi
dence by phone.
The sophomore testified he then
admitted making the call and ask
ed the official not to report the of
fense. The student told the council that
two days later Dean of Student Af
fairs William Long called him to
his office and told him the tele
phone company had reported the
incident. The student said he then
turned himself in to the attorney
The statement of the telephone
company reported the operator as
saying the sophomore said some
thing about "I've done it again."
In answer to a question about this
from the council, the sophomore
said it referred to a joke about the
number of long distance phone
calls that he made.

statement, he said the call was not
premeditated nor made with a ma

"did not think of my action as an

In answer to a council question,
he said he would not have volun

Over a dozen written character
statements and four character wit
nesses were presented by the de
fense. In summation Lawler asked the
council to consider four points:
(1) The student did give his

verdict of guilty and the sentence
of indefinite probation.
The council chairman reminded
the student of the right to appeal
