The American Association of
University Professors Friday
became the fourth national
educational body to approve
the Joint Statement on Rights
and Freedoms of Students
(Student Bill of Rights).
The Bill has been passed
earlier by the National Student
Association, the National
Association of Student Person
nel Administrators, and the
American Association of
Colleges.
It is pending vote by other
to be "very good because it
is directed to recognizing the
rights of the student."
Cathey thinks the bill is a
"long overdue effort to answer
some basic questions."
He said passage by AAUP
of the bfll "reflects that
University's in this country are
just coming up to the stan
dards UNC has had all
along."
The Dean feels "students
have always been respected

Rocky1 s Announcement Due Today
ALBANY, N.Y. Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller is expected
to reverse his campaign strategy Tuesday with an 'announcement
that he will become an active candidate for the Republican
presidential nomination.
In a brief statement the governor's press secretary Leslie
Slote, said Rockefeller would hold a news conference at 11
a.m. EDT in the New York state Capitol Tuesday "concerning
his political plans."
"This is it," one Rockefeller aide said. He cautioned however
that the governor's decision to run was not irreversible.
me governor s decision reporteoiv came following recenh
polls. Today, according those
who make it their business
to know such things about
3,600 students will turn out
to cast ballots.
That means whoever gets
1301 votes or more in either
of the elections is the winner,
and" the loser can pack his
bags and depart the second j
floor of Graham Memorial.
The polls, according to Norm
Zettel, chairman of the elec
tions board, will be open from
7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
The votes will probably be
counted by ten tonight.
And Wednesday will see a
new DTH editor and a new
president of the Student
Body.
Monday was devoted to last
minute campaigning by all
four of the candidates, and
today will see more of the
same, except more
desperate.
Phones will be ringing,
knuckles will be rapping on
doors, fliers will be going
under doors and posters will
be appearing in the most
unorthodox of places.
For this is the time of the
year that the student becomes
the most important person on
campus. He is the one who
decides, and it is he that is
the object of the vote hunt.

college and university in the
United States.
Werdell, a former NSA staff
member and former editor of
Moderator magazine, said the
passage of the statement is
"really necessary to continue
a growth of an alliance
between students and faculty
and administration who are
interested in educational
reform."
Werdell believes the recent
approval of the bill by four
of the major educational
organizations signifies a trust
between students and ad
ministrators and faculty.
He added that the bill's ap
proval represents a death of
the in loco parentis concept
which "should have died five
or ten years ago."
The statement enumerates
six. provisions "for student
freedom to learn.
According to the preample
of the statement, "Each col
lege and university has a duty
to develop policies and pro
cedures which provide and
safeguard this freedom."
The preamble qualifies the
statement by saying that "such
policies and procedures should
be developed at each in
stitution within the framework
of general standards, and with
the broadest possible
participation of the members
of the academic com
munity." The firts provision propounds
the "Freedom of Access to
Higher Education.'
This section states that
"within the limits of its
facilities, each college and
university should be open to

a need for student rits con

This section calls for

standards."
The bill urges that "under
no circumstances should a stu
dent be barred from admission
to a particular institution on
the basis of race."
(The idea for the Bill of
Rights was conceived in 1960
as the result of the expulsion
from colleges of Negro
students who had participated
in civil rights demonstrations,
according to UNC Professor
Daniel Pollitt, a member of
AAUP.
Professor Pollitt was a
member of the committee
which, in 1961, began drafting
the bill.)

RALEIGH (UPI) Although
North Carolina's May 4
primary election could bring
the most significant changes
to the state political scene in
this century, the campaign has
been one of the dullest in
memory.
Three forces, liberalism, a
Republican upsurge and racial
awareness of a type different
to the South, have intruded
into this state which four years
ago considered its Democratic
gubernatorial nominee a
virtual governor-elect.
In addition to nominating
gubern atorial candidates,
North Carolina voters will
chose nominees for the U.S.
Senate, various state posts and
congress.
U.S. Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr.,
a staunch southern con
servative, is expected to be
renominated with ease. He will
face the winner of a
Republican primary between
three unknowns.
Despite the abundance of

Dunaings, a muuiraciai "committee oi 100 ' began a round
of meetings with top government leaders to demand food,
jobs, housing and guaranteed incomes for the nation's needy.
Confusion, delay, dununciation and an almost religious fervor
marked the start of the campaign. After running more than
five hours behind its schedule of appointments with Cabinet
members the petitioners abandoned the schedule. A lunch
for 100 prepared by the predominantly white first congregational
chuurch was left untouched when the demonstrators failed
to show up for it.
The Rev. Ralph Abernathy. King's successor as chairman
of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference led the com

would be adhered to with massive civil disobedience still

issues have
been few and well hidden.
Gubernatorial talk of "law and
order" and not much else has
made a dull campaign.
The exception to this has
been Dr. Reginald A. Hawkins,
a Negro dentist who is seeking
to upset the sons of two former
governors in the Democratic
primary.
Hawkins, a longtime activist
in state affairs, has spoken
in favor of liquor-by-the-drink,
more taxes and open housing.
His wnite opponents, Lt. Gov.
Robert Scott and J. Melville
Broughton, a former state
Democratic party chairman,
have tried to outdo each other
on the law and order theme.
If Hawkins gets a large
share of the vote and serious
estimates range between
1500,000 and 200,000 of
750,000 it might forever
change the white politicians'
attitude toward members of
his race.
Although considered one of
North Carolina's most liberal
governors, former Gov. Terry
Sanford avoided campaign
handshakes with negroes
whenever he could. Candidates
trying to overcome a deficit
in runoff primaries have tradi
tionally purchased ad
vertisements showing the
Negro precincts in the state's
opponent.
A substantial Hawkins show
ing, however, could force a
new attitude with future white
candidates striking out for the
Negro those who subscribe to
this philosophy say it would
be difficult for any politician
to pass up 100,000 to 200,000
votes.
Scott, although he has made
no overt attempt to do so,
is expected to pick up
Hawkins' support in the runoff.
Considered a liberal by North
Carolina standards, Scott sup
porters see him as a means
of continuing Sanford's liberal
programs and policies.
Although tagged as a
"liberal" and "progressive,"
Scott has hidden such traits
well. One of the reasons for
this is the Republican threat
and the GOP belief it will
elect its first governor since
1896.
The Republican candidates
are John L. (Jack) Stickley,
a Charlotte textile broker and
former International Lions
Club president, and James C.
(Jim) Gardner, a brash young
(35) congressman who
unseated veteran Democratic
Rep. Harold Cooley two years
ago.
This is the first time two
"names" have made a race
for the Republican
gubernatorial nomination and
only the second time there
has been a race at all. Both
Stickley and Gardner have
been markedly conservatiev
and observers believe Scott
has turned to the right an
ticipating the November election.
Interviews will be held
Wednesday, May 1 from 3:00
until 5:00 p.m. in the Attorney
General's Office in Graham
Memorial. Applicants must
have a 2.0 average and must
live in Morrison next year.
The Men's Court heard seven
cases involving nine defen
dants during April. Four of
these were alleged violations
of the Honor Code and three
were Campus Code.
Two freshmen were placed
on definite probation
terminating September 1. 1938.
They were charged with the
"intentional removal of candy
bars from a vending machine
without having made payment
for them." No damage to the
machine was reported.
A freshman pleaded guilty
to the charge of "removing
books from Lenoir Hall and
subsequently selling them." He
was found guilty and placed
on definite probation for two
academic semesters, the
longest period a probation
sentence may last.
Two students were alleged
to have "violated the Campus
Code at a dormitory dance
and to have cursed and
verbally abused the House
Advisor at the dance." The
defendants entered pleas of
guilty and received Court
Reprimands.
A junior was charged with
a Campus Code violation in
that "on three occasions he
entered the woman's dressing
room at the gym of N.C. State
University." His plea was
guilty, and he received a Court
Reprimand.
A freshman was charged
with violating the Campus
Code. He was found guilty of
resisting arrest by the Chapel
Hill Police and of assaulting
both College Master and a
policeman. He received an in
definite probation, the
minimum period being until
February 1, 1969.
A freshman pleaded guilty
to the charge that he "lied
to a professor to postpone a
quiz and subsequently sub
mitted a forged note to the
professor to substantiate the
lie." He received definite pro
bation terminating February 1.
JL
1969.
In the final case heard
before spring holidays, a
freshman pleaded guilty to the
charge "looking at and using
information from the test
paper of another student in
preparation of his own exam."
He was placed on definite
suspension until January 15,
1969.
The bill states that "the con
ditions of access to each should
be set forth in an explicit
policy statement."
The fourt section maintains
that four standards of student
affairs "must be rnaintained
if the freedom of students is
to be preserved."
Areas of student affairs re
quiring freedom, the statement
says, are freedom of associa
tion, freedom of inquiry and
expression, student participa
tion in institutional govern
ment, and student publica
tions. Fifth, the statement recom
mends off-campus freedom of
students.
This section states that
students are both citizens and
members of the academic
community, and "as citizens,
should enjoy the same
freedoms that other citizens
enjoy."
This section also states that
"institutional authority should
never be used merely to
duplicate the function o 1
general laws."
"Only where the institution's
interests as an academic com
munity are distinct and clearly
involved should the special
authority of the institution be
asserted," the bill reads.
The Bill's final section con
cerns procedural standards in
disciplinary proceedings.
The section states that "in
developing responsible student
conduct, disciplinary-proceedings
play a role substan
tially secondary to example,
counseling, guidance, and admonition."
