Busy Year With
Tar Heel Asst. Editor
UNC, since it is a state sup
ported institution, depends on
the General Assemlby for a
major portion of its funds and
a large number of both major
and minor decisions.
And the current session,
. which will probably adjourn
h this week, found itself frequent-
ly involved with issues con
cerning the University.
At the start of its session,
the assembly expected to face
two major issues involving the
Consolidated University: the
speaker ban law and the N.C.
. State name change.

THE WINNER: UNC freshman Penny Clark walked away
with the roses in Charlotte Saturday night when she was
crowned Miss North Carolina. It's not a victory smile the fine
arts major displays here, but perhaps she was thinking of
winning the contest when DTH photographer Jock Lauterer
caught her among the budding flowers in the early spring.

Leading Lady Role Sought

ic production: -That's what
Penny Clark, newly crowned
Miss North Carolina, wants
most before she graduates
from the University.
But ithe green - eyed blonde
was quick to add that she
wants to "get beautiful re
views." Miss Clark, a rising sopho

night during the annual pag
eant at Charlotte. Some. 93
women from throughout the
state participated in the week
long event.
She was also selected as
Miss Congeniality. Miss Clark
attributed this award to what
she describes as her basic na
ture of shyness and her ner
vous condition at the pageant.
"I worked off this condition
by running around and help
ing other girls," she said. "1

to a decision on the name

some difficulty in the House
after it had cleared the Sen

Another contestant from
UNC, Patti Fields of Chapel
Hill, also won an award at
the pageant. ' She was named
the most photogenic contestant
by news photographers cover
ing the event.
Miss Clark, who lives with
kzv parents in Chapel Hill, en
tered the contest as Miss San

lived in Sanford and her fa
ther is employed there.
She will have to miss a year
of schooling because of her
duties as the new Miss North
Carolina. But she said this will
be an advantage because it
will teach her to allocate time
carefully and better organize
her activities.
Miss Clark led a busy life
during her year at the Univer
sity. The dramatic arts major
has a grueling . schedule.

final version made it effective
at time of passage.
Efforts to make Charlotte
College a branch of the Uni
versity of North Carolina date
back to 1961. The final deci
sion had to be made by the
UNC trustees, the State Board
of Higher Education, and the
General Assembly.
The question of what to do
about the speaker ban, a law
rushed through in the closing
hours of the previous session,
came up again and again. The
measure prevents "known

A bill to prohibit civil rights
demonstrations in North Caro
lina public buildings was ap
proved by the General Assem

that it is unconstitutional.
The law, enacted after House
passage, forbids lie-ins, sit-ins
or kneel - ins in or on the
grounds of public buildings

ell said the bill was "obvious
ly unconstitutional." He told
the lawmakers it does "noth
ing except reflect our emo
tions, not our considered feel
ings." "You place the state of
North Carolina in a bad light,"
he said. "You want people to
think the General Assembly
voted for vain, idle legisla
tion." Backers of the bill said it
was not necessarily aimed at
civil rights groups, but it would
protect persons going about
their business from such dem
onstrations. Before passing the measure,
the House struck out provi
sions of the bill which could
be used to convict violators of

amendment will help to pro

The lawmakers voted down
another proposed amendment
that would have made convic

ishable by $50 fine or 30 days
in prison. The House refused
to adopt the proposal on
grounds that a lesser punish

an invitation" to test cases.

All state institutions affected
by the ban, as well as a num
ber of private schools such as
Duke which were not affected,
came out strongly for repeal
or revision of the law.
Though some state legisla
tors favored complete repeal
of the law, others wanted to
strengthen it. At times anti-gag
forces almost had sufficient
votes to push repeal through
the Senate. A bill for repeal
was drafted by Sen. Jennings

version of a measure spon

The original bill would have
required the commission's ap
proval of all projects under
taken with non - state funds.
Included under it would have
been such things as research
and study grants awarded to
the University. It was strong,
ly opposed by the state's edu
cators. Earlier in the week the Gen
eral Assembly authorized the
establishment of a commission
to study the speaker ban law.
The commission was formed
at the request of Gov. Dan K.
Moore to determine whether
the speaker ban jeopardizes
