The UNC Cheerleaders voted 12-0
Tuesday night to adopt a by-law which
states that hair must be clean and neat
but must not get in the way or detract
from the cheerleader's performance.
No specifications about length are
The issue of hair length was raised by
alumni after the Carolina -State football
game. Several alumni objected to the
length of cheerleader Bernie Oakley's
Oakley refused to cut his hair and with
this new by-law cheerleaders have
indicated that they support him.
Oakley said, "The situationis similar to
that of the student legislature with its
visitation policy at odds with the
administration policy. The question is,
are the students going to be allowed to
DTD Now A Social Fra
The Alpha Lambda chapter of Delta
Sigma Pi has changed from a business
fraternity to a social fraternity by
affiliating with the national organization
Delta Tau Delta.
The chapter changed so it could
compete more effectively with other
campus fraternities, according to Ron
Romeis, senior vice president.
"Our image has always been one of a
social fraternity," explained Romeis.
"The change from a national business
fraternity to a social one only made our
image official The only real difference
now is in our name."
The move was made in August. The 37

Complaints about Oakley's hair were
made to Athletic Director Homer Rice
who relayed them to the cheerleaders.
The Athletic Association is now
responsible for the cheering squad. In
previous years the squad was supported
by student legislature. This is the squad's
first full year under the Association.
"This will be a year of a lot of trials
and tribulations for the cheerleaders,"
Rice said. "I'll stand by them. I will not
interfere with or make their decisions. I
just want to make them aware of both

hope it doesn't cause him a lot of

served UNC for 45 years," said Bill

house living, etc.

these aspects," he added. "So we decided

Manning Hall, focal point of the 1969
Food Workers' Strike, now serves as
home of the School of Library Science.
Built in 1922 to house the UNC Law
School, Manning was abandoned in 1968
when the new law building was
During the spring semester of 1969,
Manning was the setting for meetings of
striking workers and members of the
Black Student Movement. For several
weeks it housed a Soul Food cafeteria in
support of the workers.
Under orders of Gov. Robert Scott,
Manning was vacated in late March, 1968,
because it was considered a safety and
health hazard. Officials also objected to
obscenities blaring from a loudspeaker
outside the hall and rumors that weapons
were being transported into the building.
More than 100 highway patrolmen
were sent onto campus and the building
was vacated peacefully.
After evacuation by the strikers,
Manning remained empty until the
School of Library Science moved in this
The University appropriated $560,000
for renovation of the facility.
The move to Manning greatly
increased the space of the Library School,
formerly located on the fourth floor of
The new quarters afford the Library
School space to house a special children's
book collection and an audio-visual
laboratory, in addition to regular offices,
classrooms and a 60,000-volume library.
Dr. Ray L. Carpenter, acting dean of
the Library School, commented that
because of the move, "We are now much
better equipped to maintain and
strengthen an already well-established
position in the field."
"We are looking forward to a good
rush," said Romeis. "We have a full
schedule of fall activities."
Delta Tau Delta also is considering
buying or building a new house. Concrete
results are expected this year.
"We prefer a location close to the
present one, on 1 1 1 Pickard Lane, next
to the TEP house," said Romeis.
The Gamma Omega chapter of Delta
Tau Delta was established at UNC in
1921. It disbanded in the spring of 1939
due to financial problems and the onset
of World War II.
UNC alumni of Delta Sigma Pi are now
alumni of Delta Tau Delta.

to a regulatory body," he said, "but the
University is not. The basic question is

rates is necessary, according to University
officials, to raise extra revenues to
finance from $5.8 to $10.3 million in

supply at University Lake and to meet an
anticipated operating deficit of $218,145

Consolidated University President
William C. Friday had reported Tuesday
that he thought the idea of calling a
meeting of the trustee committee was a
good one. He said then he would talk to
Dees about calling a meeting.

the proposal. This was done and
announced by University Vice President
