..." Paul Dickson Don Carson
The Student Party has com-
mutcuuiuapudm uasea
on the future needs of the Uni-
versity not what someone
else has done in the past
The University -is faced with
the major problem of growth.
The residence college system
represents one approach to
dealing with this problem. As
president I would work closely
with the Ad - Hoc Residence
College Committee in further
developing this resourceful pro- fee this happen again at Caro
ject and specifically to thor- Jina- I have pledged myself to
oughly investigate the possibil
ity of common eating facilities,
coed residence colleges, and
faculty fellows for the colleges.
The key to the -success of the
Residence . College . Program
most come from effective lead
ership within the residence
halls. We propose that Student
Government in cooperation
with the MRC and CWC, estab
lish an orientation conference
for new hall presidents to be
held sometime in April.
We must also deal with the
problem of growth in our stu
dent . judiciary. Changing con
cepts of the University's rela
tion to the student requires a
re - evaluation of the Honor
Code and Campus Code. This
re - evaluation has been fos
tered by the appointment by the
Chancellor of an aJ - hoc in
vestigatory committee composed
of students, faculty, and admin
istration. The Honor System Commis
sion has joined in a thorough
evaluation of the student ju
diciary, specifically investigat
ing student judicial systems , on
other campuses. As chairman
of the commission, I made spe
cific proposals to the Chancel
lor's committee for limiting the
Campus Code to the University
, Community and student' func
tions. Needed court reforms
compose another aspect of our
comprehensive proposals.
An area which has been neg
lected in the past is the rela
tionship between students and
mmmerrial establishments in
UT ni "rnm niVv flnd
state. The Student Party ad
ministration will use a discount
ing commission to gain dis
counts for residence halls, fra
ternities, and sororities through
cooperative contracting. Work
on establishing a book coopera
tive must be continued.
The quality of undergraduate
education remains a principle
concern -of student government.
Through its State Affairs Com
mittee student government
should expand its efforts to m-
faculty salaries. We
have proposed that student gov
ernment should establish a fac
ulty chair to encourage teach
ing at the undergraduate level.
An intense effort should also
be made with other universitv
agencies to develop increased
personal counseling opportuni
ties for the undergraduate stu
dent. 'Big Sing'
Six choral groups will partic
ipate in the first annual invi
tational 44Big Sing" to be held
here Saturday.
The "Sing" will be sponsored
by the Varsity Men's Glee
Club. It will begin at 8 p.m. in
Memorial Hall.

0U1 student government
nas become one of the most
powerful student organizations
in the nation. At times however,
because of inept leadershiD. we
have seen that system degen
erate to the point that its of-
ncials spent their time need
lessly antagonizing the Univer
sity . administration, the student
body, and the Chapel Hill
community on petty and irrel-
event matters. I hope never to
be of real, and concrete bene
fit to the student body.
Communication, which is one
of the greatest problems on our
campus can be greatly facilitat-
ed through, the establishment of
the campus radio system which
we have proposed. The crea
tion of this AM radio service
will be not Jonly a source of
entertainment, for the student
body, but also a rapid means
of communication which can
broadcast . Carolina athletic
events, as well as local news
We are concerned with the
expansion of , the residence col
lege system and are presently
working to secure the Mono
gram and the Faculty Club as
a social and eatintf facilitv for
the residence college pilot
project. Several weeks ago I
spoke with the Chancellor re
garding another meeting like
the Reidsville conference which
meeting could be of great bene
fit in orienting residence hall
officers to the residence college
system I am also making
plans for the immediate inclu
sion of a coed residence hall
in the residence . college pilot
Looking to the future we have
heard a great deal about so
called discount commissions
and cooperatives which are
well enough as long range
goals, but your immediate con
cern and mine is the exploita
tion of the student body, all
11,303 of us, by Chapel Hill bus
iness establishments. Daily we
are being taken to the cleaners,
?nd I JL that 1. Your
dry cleaning, your" haircuts,
your clothing, and a host of
other items are priced in such
a manner that we must determ
ine once and for all whether
or not tbe merchants are guilty
of price fixings and exploiting
the members of this student
community. When I am elected
one of my first : actions will
be to establish a fair prices
commission to press with vigor
for reductions in the overall
price structure of this comma
nit t bri them mtQ lme with
surrounding areas. The econom
ic pressure of this student body
is tremendous, and together we
can build a fire under Chape
Hill merchants hot enough to
melt their prices down. .
You are doubtless concerned
with the qualifications of the
man who will be the next presi
dent of the student body. Since
my freshman year, I have
served in all three branches of
Student Government. This year
it has been my privilege to
serve with one of the greates
administrations in the history o
student government and it is
because of the programs 1 have
seen Bob Spearman initiate, the
programs I have initiated, the
programs we have initiated to
gether, and the part I have had
in helping to carry them out
that I have asked you to con
sider my candidacy.

Give. Views Of Post
(Ed. Note University Party nominee Camilla Walters and
Student Party nominee Sherry O'Donnell are ne a ring the end
of a long campaign for student body secretary. .Both candidates
talked about their ideas and qualifications this week with
DTH staffer Mary Ellison Strother. Thase are her interviews.)
Sherry O'Donnell
"The Student . Government of-,
fice is unique: m nreDaration
for working in . it practical of
fice experience helps but the
most meaningful experience is
having taken part in its actual
operation," says Sherry O'Don-.
A junior from Annahdale,
Va., she feels the job of secre
tary is "one that has to be
done right in order for the Stu
dent Government to operate ef
fectively. I feel that through
my work in Student Govern
ment this year and in. my back
ground experience with the fed
eral government in Washington
I have gained the necessary ex
perience." .
Miss O'Donnell has worked
three summers as a clerk typist
for the federal government. A
political science major and
transfer from UNC-G, she was
active there in student govern
ment work.
She served on the committee
drafting legislation, was twice
a delegate to the State Student
Legislature, twice represented
UNC - G at the mock United
Nations Assembly, and served
as parliamentarian of the legis
lature. At UNC she has assisted Stu
dent Body President Bob Spear
man in serving as correspond
ing secretary for State. Student
Legislature, and as a member
of the Consolidated University
Student Co'tncil. - V C "n."
She spends afternoons five
days a week voluntarily work
ing in the office of Hhe Secre
tary Madeline Gray, but is not;
a regular member of the sec
retariat. "Bob has, through his organ
ization, expanded it and made
it efficient. Perhaps its only
weakness is that its selectivity
does not encourage a variety of
students campus wide to be in
terested in participating."
She sees the secretary as an
integral factor in the working
of Student Government. "I feel
that because of this experience
in the office of the secretary
is mandatory."
"My opponent has said that
the major responsibility of the
student body secretary lies in
the area of public relations. I
feel she is harboring a miscon
ception as to what the job en
tails Granted, you have to be
able to work well with people
in Student Government and in
anything you do, but this is only
the beginning. After having
worked with and talked to
Madeline . I cannot accept pub
lic relations as the primary
goal of the secretary. Above
all, she must insure that all
work coming into the office be
completed DromDtlv and cor

Camilla Walters
"The job of Student Body
Secretary must not be taken
lightly. It involves much more
than just clerical work since
tVe conrofarv mucf ha o mihlir1
relations man for the Student
Body a competent, qualified
organizer as well 2is an effici-
ent . typist, correspondent and
filest," states Camilla 'Walters.
A Greensboro" native and a
. dean's list student, Miss" Wal
ters feels that an "effective
Student Government and all of
the activities it instigates ' are
in some way dependent on an
efficient and smoothly run sec
retariat. Since the secretary is
in daily contact with the. plans
and activities of the Student
Government programs, '.she
must have had wide experience
in these activities herself."
bince entering -UNC- as a
freshman in medical t technolo
gy, she has participated active
ly in many Student Govern
ment capacities as well as oth
er all - campus organizations.
Presently secretary of Graham
Memorial as well as of . the
junior class, she. has; also
worked with the Student Gov
ernment secretariat, completed
an intensive college secretarial
course, and is presently secre
tary of the District Association
of College Unions serving 25
member schools. I
She has served on Women's
Honor Council, the Attorney
General's staff, as a sophomore
class officer, as summer presi
dent of GM, and as an orienta
tion counselor, discussion; lead
er. "Her present, capacities' other
than her three secretarial po
sitions include coordinator of
campus organizations for Cam
pus Chest and a member of the
Elections Board.
"Because of my varied ac
tivities on the UNC campus
which include both administra
tive and organizational positions
as well as secretarial positions,
and because , of my knowledge
and interest in the Student
Government - system," she stat
ed, "I feel that I am fully
qualified for the position of stu
dent body secretary. ,
"Having been under the three
different administrations of In
man Allen, Mike Lawler and
Bob Spearman, I am well
aware of the problems of. Stu
dent Government they encoun
tered and familiar with the im
provements and mistakes each
"My opponent has stated
that the student body secretary
must be a 'slave and a slave
driver.' Granted, the job de
mands a vast amount of work
and devotion. However, in my
opinion, the secretary, having
had the proper administrative
experience and having been
accustomed to working with
oeoDle from all areas, will be
able to select a hard working,
devoted and responsible secre-
tariat who will

Porky The Pig
He's Running Too
DTH Feature Writer
Frank Hodges was startled,
to put it mildly, w hen he saw
his new opponent for Ehring
haus academic vice president.
But, Hodges shrugged his
shoulders and decided to be
friendly. He walked across the
residence hall lobby to shake
hands. -
Hodges stared in disbelief
when - his opponent snorted at
him, then urinated on the lobby
Porky Pig is no run - of - the -litter
candidate. He is a small,
black and white stud pig, nine
"weeks old. Some 75 persons
signed a letter of endorsement
for him to run against Hodges,
who was previously unopposed.
Nelson Watts, Dwight Thomas,
Richard Walker, and Scott Ed
wards thought up the plan to
run the pig, and decided to set
it into action. -
Thursday morning the four

and then to Smithfield in search

Debate Breaks Out
Heated debate broke out
over an amendment offered by
Avery president Jim Ward that
would have required senators
to have a 2.0 over - all aver
age. Opponents to the amendment
argued that the largest possible
number of people should be en
couraged to run for senate
seats. "
Senator Bob Farris of Parker
charged that this amendment
might greatly reduce the num
ber of people eligible to serve.
Other senators felt it sufficient
to require only that senators
be in "good standing."
Amendment Beaten
Ward's amendment was de
feated. The constitution gives Scott
College residents the power to
elect and recall their officials,
