Student Legislature will vote tonight
on whether to accept the administration's
Open House Agreement as the only
visitation policy or support the guidelines
ratified in last week's legislative meeting.
The legislature passed guidelines last
Thursday which allow individual
residence houses a choice between the
administration's guidelines of limited
visitation or seven-day-a-week,
24-hour-a-day visitation as passed by SL
Student Body Vice President Bill Blue
said a proposed amendment to SL's
guidelines will be introduced tonight and,
if passed, will delete any reference to last
spring's SL visitation policy.
Blue said the amendment was drawn
up in view of the administration's staunch
stand behind their guidelines while issuing
strong disapproval of Legislature's
According to Judiciary Committee
Chairman Nelson Drew, the amendment
was approved by the committee
Wednesday on a vote of 4-3. Drew said
the deciding factor was that the bill
would empower student courts to try all
violations of the policy.

made possible after Student Legislature
passed an- amendment to-., the

In a meeting with house
representatives Friday, Dean of Men Fred
Schroeder told students the
administration agreement which limited
visitation hours was the only acceptable
policy. Those houses which passed the
seven-day, 24-hour policy were
considered to have no visitation,
Schroeder told the group.
The administration agreement sets

To Buy Water
The University has begun purchasing
two million gallons of water from nearby
Durham in the face of a sharp drop in the
level of University Lake.
The lake, the only source of water for
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area, .has
dropped 14 inches after more than a
month without rain.
The water purchased from Durham
will be fed into the University-owned
Chapel Hill water system by a pipeline
built in 1968 to combat a four-month
Dr. Claiborne Jones, special assistant
to the chancellor, said the water is being
pumped from Durham's Mickey Lake to
prevent mud and silt from filtering into
the water lines. The 4 1 -inch drop in the
level of the lake marks the lowest level
since 1968 when the lake dropped to 96
inches below normal.
The two million gallons of water will
provide from one-third to one-half of the
town's water. Daily water consumption is
between four and six million gallons in
Grey Culbreth, director of the
University Physical Plant, said the move
to purchase water from Durham was a
Jones said that there is currently
enough water in University Lake to last
until Thanksgiving if there is no rain, and
that the supplement from Durham would
add enough water to that supply to last
He added that the pumping operation
would be discontinued as soon as it rains.
The U.S. Weather Bureau's five-day
forecast predicts no rain in the immediate
This is the first time the pipeline has
been used since 1968 when it was
completed about a week before a
four-month drought broke and the level
of University Lake rose enough to allow
discontinuance of the pipeline.
That water shortage forced the
enactment of emergency measures by
both the town and the University.
residence houses adopted the SL policy
for visitation last week.
Three of the houses have since
accepted the administration policy,
leaving only fourth floor James and the
ISC with the liberal policy until Project
Hinton reviewed its visitation policy
Project Hinton voted to withdraw its
earlier agreement with the administration
policy and to accept instead the SL
policy at its weekly "town meeting"
The Project had voted last week to
implement the administration policy but
more than 90 percent of the members
present at the Wednesday meeting voted
to repeal the agreement.
Jim Cobbr spokesman for the fourth -floor
of James, said the residents of the
floor reaffirmed its decision to fight the
administration after one of its residents
was charged with violating the visitation
The alleged violation was the only one
reported after last weekend's visitation.
Dean Schroeder said the case is now
awaiting a hearing by a
faculty-administrative board. Student
Legislature is meeting tonight, however,
and if that body revokes its amendment
of last Thursday, Schroeder said the
violation would be handled by student
Cobb, discussing the decision of fourth
floor James to reaffirm its seven-day,
24-hour policy, said, "We believe that if
student government is going to exist,
students must support it, else it becomes
"We also feel that many students who
adopted the administration's policy of
visitation and open house did so only to
appease the administration with the
intent of following their own will," he
Cobb explained that many students
who voted for the limited visitation will
probably keep women in their rooms
"We support the Student Legislature
and honesty' he concluded.
In a meeting with residence house
representatives Friday, Dean of Men Fred
Schroeder said the administration could
not accept the Open House Agreement

indicated that if student courts were
unable to prosecute students for violation
of the administration's guidelines then
administrative action would possibly be
If Legislature accepts the amendment,
the case of an alleged violator last
weekend will be open to controversy. The
violation was reported to have occurred
on the fourth floor of Hinton James
dormitory, a residence house which
supported 24-hour-a-day visitation.
Attorney General John McDowell was
quoted Wednesday by The Daily Tar Heel
as saying that if SL should repeal its
original vote, then the student who
violated the policy would be given the
option of being tried by student court.
Other issues considered by Legislature
tonight will include a 520,000
appropriation to establish the Carolina
Graphics print shop ratified last summer
Blue said discussion will center around
establishment of salary categories for
employes of the print shop and changes
in the bill will be introduced that would
make the new Publications Board set up
by the print shop bill valid.
Finance Committee chairman Steve
Ayers reported the committee will meet
at 3:30 p.m. today to consider a bill
concerning all categories of the print
shop. Ayers also said restructuring of the
Publications Board will be considered.
Other areas of Finance Committee
attention will be a student service
commission, a clarification of salary
categories for campus radio WCAR and

probably be a price on the booklet.

Jim Flynt and Steve Ayers announced
Wednesday the recognition of their
differences over the chairmanship of the
University Party. Each has agreed that
neither wants to be chairman of the
"Neither of us are interested in being
chairman of UP," said Ayers, "we don't
have the time."
According to Flynt, the question of
the chairmanship became "blown all out
Flynt charged Student Body Treasurer
Guil Waddell Monday with political
railroading by delivering the chairmanship
to Ayers, although Flynt was next in line
for the job.
Flynt also made allegations concerning
Ayers' and Waddell's membership in Pi
Kappa Phi fraternity when he said, "I'm
tired of seeing fraternities railroad
"I would like to apologize for those
comments on Pi Kappa Phi. I'm sorry for
that," said Flynt. "The comments were
totally unfounded and out of place."
Both Flynt and Ayers reconfirmed the
meeting of the University Party members
"and any interested persons" for 8 p.m.
Sunday at Howell Hall.
They said nominations will be taken
from the floor for the office of chairman
"I would like to see a sophomore
elected chairman and perhaps some.
freshmen elected to the other officers,"
Ayers agreed that "the party needs
new blood" in its administration.
The controversy around the
chairmanship centered on the hierarchy
of the University Party. Answering
Flynt's charges, Waddell said Tuesday the
position- of chairman should have gone to
former "UP" policy " vice chairman Gary
Fagg. However, Fagg was arrested last
spring and convicted for sale and
possession of amphetamines.
According to Waddell, since Fagg
could not take the office, the next in line
would have been the organizational vice
chairman, Jim Flynt.
"It was the opinion of a majority of
the executive board that Flynt was not
interested in his position," said Waddell.
"Since Steve (Ayers) was the next in
succession following the organizational
vice chairman and since he was the
party's floor leader in the legislature, the
majority of the executive board voted to
The controversy also centered on the
selection ol . Jim Hornstein as vice
chairman of UP. Waddell said Tuesday
this was done because Hornstein "played
a major role in the campaigns last spring,
so we felt he was deserving."
Concerning the reconciliation between
the two factions, Waddell said he was
"pleased. It was good for all involved. I
think the controversy was caused by a
simple lack of communications. I hope it
won't happen again."

One Carolina cheerleader is inspiring
more than cheers from the crowd this
year; his long hair and beard are inspiring
complaints from alumni.
The cheerleader, Bernie Oakley, said

complaints from alumni about his hair

According to the proposal, male
cheerleaders' hair must not cover their
ears and collar. Also, cheerleaders must
wear the designated uniform of the
season. The head cheerleader, however,
may wear whatever he likes.
The proposal also says female
cheerleaders must tie their hair with a
ribbon if it gets in their way while
cheering, and they may not use excessive

'To me it all boils down to whether
I'm representing the student body or the
alumni. If there weren't any long hairs at
Carolina I could understand it," said
"They've left me in a position so that
anything I do makes me feel stupid. If I
quit the squad because of my hair, that's
stupid too. It just isn't sufficient reason
to quit the squad," he said.
He added, "I wouldn't be happy out
there anymore knowing that I'm being
made to present some sort of acceptable
image. It just wouldn't be fun anymore."

Association. They pay for our uniforms
and, at away-games, our meals. They're
like our employers so I guess they have
the right to tell me what I ought to look

"I hate to think that a 20-year-old guy
in college has to be told what he can look
like. If they're afraid of what I am then
cutting my hair isn't going to change
me," said Oakley.
Oakley said Rice never issued an
ultimatum. "He said it didn't matter to
him but that there will be complaints
from alumni," said Oakley.
