Residence College Funds
By JOHN GREENE ACKER
DTH Political Writer
Student Legislature passed
three appropriation bills total
ing $3,650 for Scott, Morehead
and Morrison Residence Col
leges without objection Thurs
day night.
The bills provide money for
administration, publicity, pub
lications and especially social
activities of the colleges.
Legislature also passed a
special resolution introduced
jointly by the members of the
SL Finance Committee which
said the initial residence col
lege appropriations were of an
"emergency" nature.
The resolution urged the re
spective college senates to col
lect money for their future ac
tivities by means of an in
creased social fee to be paid
by college residents each se
mester. Dickson Speaks
Terming the bills "of major
importance to the future of the
University," Dickson said,
"Much of the future of these
three colleges hangs on your
votes this evening.
"The students of the resi
dence halls are not willing to
wait," Dickson said. "They
want this program now, but it
is up to you.
"The residence college pro
gram is a way to let a stu
dent be an individual," he
said, "It is a way to give him
a home, to give him a sense
of belonging which cannot be
achieved in a computerized
multiversity."
Dickson also outlined the res
idence college program and
cited University administration
support for its establishment.
Jim Smith (UP) asked Dick
son what aspect of his legisla
tive program would benefit the
off-campus legislative districts.
'I have nothing planned ex
cept the establishment of the
Student Discounting Commis
sion," Dickson said.
Finance Resolution
The resolution calling for
future collection of residence
college funds through social
fees was introduced for the Fi
nance Committee by chairman
Hugh Blackwell (SP).

money to make sure the resi
dence college system gets off
Tar Heels Face Clemson Today
Bv PAT STITH
DTH Sports Editor
Frank Howard, the Baron of
Barlow Bend, said earlier this
week that his Tigers were
"skeered" about coming to Ke
nan Stadium to play North Car
olina. Howard, of course, was jest
ing. But if his boys aren't
scared, at least they have good
reason to be apprehensive, be
cause they have a lot riding
on their battle with the Tar
Heels.
A win would give them a per
fect 5-0 mark in ACC play and
an awful good shot at their
first conference football cham
pionship since 1959. And there
is even more than the league
title to be won.
There is talk of a Bowl game
for the Tigers if they can
knock off Carolina and then
keep their nose clean over the
last two games with Maryland
and South Carolina.
Gator's Interested
The Gator Bowl selection
committee has said that How
ard's team is one of 14 being
considered for that classic.
The Tar Heels, on the oth
er hand, have relatively little
to lose, losers in four of sev
en games, UNC has no confer
ence hopes and no bowl hopes.
They have no reason to be
looking past this afternoon's
get together.
In 1963 the situation was re
versed. That time it was the
Tar Heels who were sailing
along with a 6-1 record (5-1
ACC) with visions of a Bowl
game dancing in their heads.
Clemson upset their cart 11-7
though Carolina got a Gator
Bowl bid anyway.
Not Flashy
The Tigers haven't been
flashy. They have no offensive
back who is in the same league
to a good start," Blackwell
said, "but it needs to be
placed on a self-supporting
basis in the future.
"Only 40 per cent of the stu
dent body lives in these resi
dence halls," Blackwell said.
"It is unfair to make the oth
er 60 per cent finance these
social activities."
Blackwell said a collection
of funds within the colleges
would save money for the ma
jority of the student body and
would prevent the "Tying
down" of the legislative agenda
with financial bills.
"This resolution makes it
clear that Student Legislature
is not obligated to give similar
amounts of Student Govern
ment funds to emerging resi
dence colleges merely because
the original colleges received
these amounts," he said.
Byron McCoy (SP), a legis
lator and Governor of Morri
son Rsidence College, backed
the Finance Committee's reso
lution. "Car Needs Gas"
"Student Government has
provided us with a car, and
we have come to it for gas,"
he said. "We don't want the
student body to buy all of it
for us in the future."
The only spoken opposition
to the resolution came from
Teddy O 'Toole (UP).
"I agree the residence col
leges must be self sufficient,"
he said, "but what is going to
happen when we pass this bill?
"Does this mean the legisla
ture is going on record as not
providing more money to the
colleges if they need it," he
asked.
"If we don't provide more
money, the Residence College
System will go out of exist
ence," he said.
Speaker Britt Gordon re
minded O'Toole that the legis
lature's resolutions are not
binding on future actions of the
body.

MHC Levies Suspensions
By BILL MILLER
Special To the DTH
Two men were suspended
for one semester and two were
placed on one - semester pro
bation by the Men's Honor
Council Thursday night.
All the cases stemmed from
Honor Code offenses involving
stealing, cheating and falsify
ing automobile registration
cards.
The first suspension arose
from a charge of three counts.
The main offense concerned a
student's stealing two side win
dows for his sports car.
He pleaded indefinite to this
charge since his own windows
had recently been stolen, say
ing this provoked him to steal
someone else's.
He was also charged with il
legally obtaining an automo
bile registration sticker from a
friend since he did not have
the necessary grade average
managed to outgain their op
position in total yards.
But they've won and that's
what counts. They've won 'em
when they're tight (3-2 over
Duke, 3-0 over T.C.U.) too,
something that Carolina has
been unable to consistent! do.
In fact, if Howard had
enough sense to steer clear of
Georgia and, his team would
rate national recognition at
this point. Clemson's two loss
es have been to Georgia Tech,
38-6 and Georgia, 23-9.

Campus Radio Supporters
Begin Circulating Petition
Campus radio supporters be
gan circulating a petition yes
terday to hold a campus-wide
referendum for the passage of
the key radio organization bill
defeated recently by Student
Legislature.
The petition reads: "We, the
undersigned, hereby approve
of the bill to establish a Cam
pus Radio Board of Directors
and do request that an elec
tion be held on the attached
legislation in accordance with
the Student Government Con
stitution's provision for initia
tive," Extreme cost and other
problems in the initial radio
proposals caused a majority

Cadets Collecting
Books At Game
Paperback books to be sent
to servicemen in Veit Nam will
be collected at Kenan Stadium
Saturday before the Clemson
game.
UNC Navy midshipmen and
Air Force cadets will be sta
tioned at each of the eight
gates to receive books. The pro
ject is being sponsored by the
University and the USO, since
there is a scarcity of paper
backs for soldiers in Viet
Nam.
All students are urged to do
nate any paperbacks they no
longer need. The books will be
collected from the time the
gates open until the first quart
er. hold an 8-5 edge in the series.
If the Tar Heels hold to their
form today, look for most of
the Tiger growling to come in
the last quarter. UNC has out
scored it's opponents in the
first period by a good margin,
42-24. They slip some in the
second quarter (28-34) but still
hold the lead going into half
time. Carolina looks real good in
the third (21-3) and the oppon
ents began passing. After that
it has been no contest. Oppos
ing teams have poured over 70
desperation points (to 31 for
UNC) and that has been the
story of three of their four
losses.

Carolina Cardboard, sponsor

halftime show of the season to

2,400 students will present a

UNC tradition since 1948.
The club, believed to be the
largest of its kind in the east

clude about 100 members.
Stunts, directed bv a mem
ber of the Cardboard, are exe

ed on cards located under each
participant's seat.
Johnny Grover, president of
Cardboard, commented on the

Wants Trustees
To Have Control
Bv ANDY MYERS
DTH Staff Writer
RALEIGH The Speaker
Ban Study Commission recom
mended yesterday that the gag
law be "amended" so that the
trustees not only have the
"authority but also the re
sponsibility of adopting rules
and precautionary measure re
lating to visiting speakers."
Rep. David M. Britt, head
of the Commission, made the
statement in the old House
Chamber of the Capitol Build
ing. He asked Gov. Dan Moore
to call a special session of the
legislature on Monday, Nov.
15, to consider the amend
ment. Speaking after Britt, Moore
said "I approve of the report
and its recommendations with
out any reservations," adding
that the Commission has found
a "common gound for all those
devoted to freedom and who
desire to do what is best for
North Carolina."
Moore called for a meeting
of the UNC Board of Trustees
Friday, as well as all other
state supported school boards
of trustees, "so that each
board may consider and adopt
the speaker policy recommend
ed." Power To Trustees
The Speaker Ban Law will
nrobablv be amended to give
the power and responsibility
of its enforcement to univer
sity trustees, if the trustees
agree to the compromise.
President of the Consolidated
University William Friday,
who attended the announce
ment in Raleigh, said the rec
ommendations should "greatly
improve the situation of the
University."
But noting, "If I understand
the language of the statement
correctly, if the law were
amended it would return to the
board of trustees the tradition
al authority to govern the Uni
versity." Friday said he would need
time to study Britt's state
ment. Apparently, he said, "it
would remove prior restraints
on the free and open discus
sion at the University."
Friday added that he was
"particularly pleased that the
commission made such a
strong statement" concerning
charges of "leftist leanings" at
the University.
Speaking from a prepared
text, Britt's main change in the
original law concerns the ap
pearance of Communists on
state - supported campuses.
The Commission feels, he
said, that "anyone who advo
cates any ideology or from of
government which is wholly
alien to our basic-democratic
institutions should be infre
quent and then only when it
would clearly serve the advan
tage of education."
Recommendations
Friday said he would recom
mend the trustees make the
following regulations on cam
pus speakers:
A faculty member pre
side over all speaking appear
ances. A speaker must agree to
answer questions from the au
dience. Opportunity must be giv
en at the time of speech or
later for the opposing view
point to be presented.
Friday said the commission
recommendation should "satis
fy the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools."
Members of the Southern As
sociation on Schools and Col
leges were not available for
comment yesterday, but Britt
agreed that the association
should be satisfied with the
amendment.
No Radicalism
On charges of "radicalism"
at the University, and especial
ly at Chapel Hill, Britt an
swered m nis rtyut:
"The evidence fails to justify
charges of irresponsibility at
Chapel Hill. There have been
and always will be individuals
who express themselves in
ways that, some, are disturb
ing because they are unortho
dox and the larger the institu
tion becomes the more likely
to attract this type oi: individ
ual. House Speaker Pat Taylor
and Lt. Gov. Bob Scott, presi
dent of the Senate, spoke af
ter Moore had called for a
meeting of the trustees and for
the special session.
Both Scott and Taylor pre- 9
dieted an easy passage of a
speaker ban amendment. Scott
said:
"This is an issue of freedom
from fear of suspicion, free
dom of inquiry, and freedom
to search for truth.
"I am confident the General
Assembly will receive these
recommendations favorably
and will resolve this question
in an atmosphere of calm de
liberations." Taylor added that if the rec
ommendations are followed
"the objections of opponents
of this law will have been met
and at the same time, the ob
jectives of those who favor it
will be accomplished.
"This controversy is not
helping North Carolina and it
is time for it to settled. I sup
port the recommendations of
the commission and urge its
support and adoption by the
trustees of the various institu
tions affected and by the Gen
eral Assembly."
Although some legislators
were disappointed that the
commission did not make a
"strong policy, a requirement
. . ." to amend the law, most
were satisfied.
Senate Majority Leader Rob
ert Morgan and also the chair
man of East Carolina College
board of trustees, who was dis
appointed with the report,
said:
"We, as trustees cannot ex
pect the power to be returned
to us until we formulate the
policies."
Opposition to the recom
mendations came from the
American Legion of North
Carolina.
State Commander Alvin Car
ver of Dunn said:
"I am disappointed. I
thought the commission would
require a strong resolution by
the trustees.
"I don't think the people of
North Carolina care much how
Communists are kept away, by
resolution or law.
