According to the 1970-71 Carolina
Handbook listings, Ayers currently serves
as UP chairman with party member Jim
Hornstein presiding as vice-chairman.
Flynt said upon returning to

former party chairman Wadell about the
chairmanship. According to Flynt,
Waddell said Ayers was the chairman.

The option of accepting either the
administration's Open House Aereement
or the policy passed by SL was given to
individual residence houses in legislative
action last Thursday.
The administration policy, the only
policy which is recognized as official,

Sunday through Thursday and from noon
to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
According to Schroeder, violations of

McDowell said he feels that the student
would be given an option to be tried in
student courts. However, proceedings
against the student would not be initiated
by his office.
Tom Bello, student body president,
referred to the University as "legimate
landlord" which can make regulations
Bello called attention to Section 3-3
of the Bylaws of the Trustees and Duties
of Officers in which the Chancellor is
given the duty to exercise full authority
in the regulation of student conduct and
in matters of student discipline in the
institution. Thus it is clear, he said, that
the administration, not the students, has
full authority over student conduct.
Bello said he hoped SL was aware the
ammendment jeopardizes students who
accept the SL policy as well as the
student judicial system.
"It is in the best interest of the
student body and the student judiciary
for student courts to try all student
violators of the open house policy.
"I hope that they will reconsider to
see if the principle involved outweighs the
practicality," Bello said.

Flynt claims the next in line as of last
spring would be the organizational vice

Waddell coald not immediately be
reached for comment on the issue.
According to Flynt, the party's
constitution stipulates an elections board
must meet before a permanent chairman
can be elected and the board cannot meet
during the summer.
Also the executive board must have at
least 24 hours notification of any
meeting. Flynt said that he knew of at
least two members of the executive board
who received no notification of any
meeting during the summer.
"These people have not been elected
unless the party's constitution has been
changed in the back room," Flynt said.

group "has no long-range goal. We just try
to help as many people as possible now."
According to Carter, Switchboard
deals primarily with people having" bad
drug experiences. He said there is no
place free of moralizing doctors, legal
hassles with police or moralizing parents

Other youth problems which
Switchboard deals with are unwanted

The Tar Heel Band is a select musical
marching unit of 120 members who
perform at all home football games. This
year the group also will travel with the
team to Wake Forest and Clemson.
The band is composed of men and
women from all schools of the University.
Members are chosen by audition.
Rehearsals take six hours a week. Each
band member receives one academic hour
of credit per semester of participation. If
a member maintains the necessary grade
average he is eligible for a band award.
The band employs a combination of
drill and pageantry. The Marching Tar
Heels have made a reputation with their
sound, full and brassy with woodwinds
adding highlights. Snappy tempos,
colorful uniforms and unique formations
add to their fame.

If Switchboard doesn't have the
facilities to deal with a certain problem, it
has what is called a "quality referral
service." A person with a particular
problem will be referred to an

members have scouted.

heroin overdose, we tell the caller to do
anything to keep the guy awake. Then, a
backup physician and one Switchboard
worker go to the hospital to administer

One of the backup physicians, Dr. Bob
Senior, has high praise for the group.
"This is the most exciting thing I've seen
in community affairs," he said.
"Switchboard has done a lot more than
just crisis intervention, and the lives they
have touched have been greatly helped,"
"This is why Switchboard exists: to
help ease immediate problems without
creating new ones like moralizing does,"
Chief W. D. Blake of the Chapel Hill
Police Department said he believes the
group is doing good.
"There should be a place like this for
people with drug problems. I know that
Switchboard has helped to save lives,"
commented the Chief.
