Draft Call Asks 48,000 Marines
WASHINGTON The Defense Department issued a draft call
Friday for 48,000 men in April, the second highest in the Vietnam
War and the first involving Marines in two years.
At the same time, it was disclosed that the Joint Chiefs of
Staff have proposed ordering nearly 50,000 National Guardsmen
and Reservists to active duty if President Johnson decides to in
crease the authorized troop level of 525,000 men in Vietnam. ,
The President presumably is awaiting a report from Gen.
Earle G. Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs who is in Viet
nam. One purpose of Wheeler's visit is to discuss the entire ques
tion of military manpower with Gen. Wiliiam C. Westmoreland;
the U.S. war commander.
North Viet Artillery Hits Khe Sarih
SAIGON North Vietnamese Friday bombarded Khe Sanh
and other U.S. northern outposts with massive artillery barrages
and tried desperately to reinforce the diehard Communist force
still holding out in Hue's Citadel. But allied trooos caught a bat
talion of Red reinforcements trying to slip into The Citadel and
killed 223 of them.
Just North of Hue Communis troops ambushed a U.S. Air
Cavlary battalion and shot down a helicopter gunship supporting
?the Americans. Two Cavalyrmen were killed and 25 wounded
before the American battalion shot its way out of the trap.
To the north, along the Demilitarized Zone where the North
:; Vietnamese have massed some 50,00 0 troops for a threatened
offensive, Communist gunners unleashed a barrage of 669
rockets, artillery and mortar shells on allied positions.

creates a much better atmo
sphere for living in than the
conventional one, according
to NSA delegate from St. An
drews College, Laurinburg,
N.C., which four years ago in
stituted coed dormitories.
"The difference is," he; told
participants in a workshop on
the residence college at the
NSA conference here, is that
"girls no longer become an ob
ject of sex; the student gets to
meet them as people."
This creates a positive at
mosphere for students to live
in, he said.
The flunk-out rate for these
dormitories, which have one
wing for. girls, another for
boys, has turned out to be a lot
less than the flunk-out rate for
the regular dorms.
UNC students predominated
at the workshop of the con
ference on educational reform.
Bill Darrah, governor of
James Residence College and
Brian Evdo, president of Grif
fith House of Morrison, were
the discussion leaders.
Much of the discussion turn
ed towards what needed to be
done at UNC and what had
been done at other schools that
would be useful at UNC

out increased interaction
between faculty and students
as a necessity.
The St. Andrews delegate ex
plained that there the resident
advisor in the mens dorms had
been eliminated and replaced
by a faculty advisor. k
"Attitudes toward academics
have really changed as a
result," he said.
. "Being there creates a much
better atmosphere."
A big problem; according to
Evdo, is that sbdents decide
to get something and the ad

which has a pass-fail system,"
;and Cal Tech, which gives no
! grades freshman year, as ex-
amples.
I Powell pointed to two major
problems involved in develop
ing a university where students
learn how to learn: one, the
; students themselves, and two,
the faculties.
1 "I'm not sure each of us
! wants this freedom," he said.
. "I think you'll find enormous
resistance on campus" from
" persons who want to be free.
The faculty would put up
strong resistance to this
; freedom, probably, Powell con-
- tinued, ; but he added that he
wasn't "so convinced that the
faculty is so bad."
He catalogued three things
that would tend to make the
faculty of a university resist
any change towards freedom
for the students:
One, the faculty government
is structured in such a way,
generally, that no real thoughts
or ideas are brought up;
1 Two, "faculty elitism"; a
faculty member thinks of
teaching students a course in
order to introduce them to his
own special field, and not to
teach them to learn how to
learn;
Three, the actual structure
of the university; most in
situations do not have norms
which allow for student
- participation in decision mak
ing. One delegate questioned
whether most students, if
given this freedom might have
"mental hernias" in trying to
adjust to the emphasis on
thinking for themselves.
. O'Toole explained that
"some people are not ready to
take on the role we have talked
about, possibly because of
elementary or secondary
school training."
Powell, however, said he was
"not convinced that people who
are given freedom 'will have
"mental hernias.' "
"The first reaction is .one of
resistance," he said, and then '
the student will catch on to
thinking fdr himself .

voted, 1109 wanted the code
limited to Chapel Hill and all
times a student was represen
ting the University. Some 12
wanted the code limited ex
clusively to the Chapel Hill
community and 668 wanted it'
limited entirely to the cam
pus. ning of our fiscal year," he ex
plaind. "We have all intentions of
paving it in July if we get the
funds. In fact, we've got
several paving projects plan
ned." The petition, circulated
through Connor, Winston and
Alexander dorms, was
presented to Hamilton Tuesday
morning by David Wilborn, its
author. She is a graduate coun
selor at Connor.
"I accepted the petition and
thanked Miss Wilborn for br
inging the matter to my at
tention," Hamilton said.
"At the present time we do
not have funds to do any pav
ing. Weve tried to keep
enough Chapel Hill Gravel on
this road and our campus
supervisor has planned a con
siderable amount of pipe work
to make the shoulder suitable
for parking."
"He also plans to increase
the width of the road. This
work will begin this spring."
Hamilton added that even if
funds were available, the pav
ing could not be done until
temperatures are above freez
ing both night and day.
Miss Wilborn said that
Hamilton was "most gracious"
and that "he showed me a
number of maps of campus,
aerial views and explained
some of the reasons for the
priority given the different
projects."
She drew up the petition
after discussion with Mrs.
Graham Ramsay, house
mother for Connor; June Orr,
president of the dormitory;
and La Voice Hard is on,

At the present time, only the
first two sections of the survey
have been graded. These sec
tions deal with the basics of
setting up the system and its
jurisdiction.
Students voted in favor of a
system of academic discipline,
1696 to 295. Some 93 students
were undecided on the question
of maintaining a code in the
university communiy .
Fifteen hundred students
were in favor a code of
academic discipline based on
student responsibility and stu
dent enforcment. Only 236
students were in favor of a
proctor system while 252 were
in favor of some other
system.
This question had been a,
principle concern of Bill Miller,
chairman of the Men's Honor
Court.
"The students would be
doing themselves a real
disservice if they decided to
support the proctor system,"
said Miller.
Students also voted to define
the Honor Code in terms of
lying, cheating and stealing of
an academic nature only.
Some 1452 wanted the limita
tion to be to academic
misdeeds, 525 wanted the code
to include lying, cheating and
stealing of any nature.
The voting in favor of the
academic limitation was with
the understanding that all non
academic offenses would come
under the campus code.
Students also favored a code
social discipline. Some 1216
were in favor of a social code,
while 731 were against it.
The code of academic
discipline received stronger
approval, 1696 to 295.
The survey was conducted on
Feb. 15 along with the National
Student Association referenda
and the financial reform bilL
The Attitudinal Survey had
2,000 participants, while
