The UNC Residence College
Federation (RCF) voted Wednesday night
to move for lower prices in snack bars on
RCF spokesmen said a preliminary
survey indicates some snack bar prices are
as much as 90 per cent higher than those
in downtown Chapel Hill.
The survey also showed variations in
prices among the snack bars themselves.
"The snack bars were established to
Drovide service for students in the
dorms," RDF Co-Chairman Mark Evans,
said Thursday. "Now it seems they're just
out to make money.
"The prices have become outrageous."
Evans also said the hours the snack
bars are open have been shortened.
"If they want to cut down on the
hours," he said, "then they should put in
some vending machines with sandwiches
and drinks. Service must be provided for
students up late.
"The prices, though, are the most
important thing, and we are trying to
figure out some way to get them down to
Evans said one of the plans now under
consideration by the RCF is the
establishment of a student cooperative
that would purchase food products from
downtown merchants and. carry them to

Election '70, UNC's political
information clearing house, is having a
"get it together" session next Thursday at
8 p.m. in the Union.
The committee, set up to get students
actively participating in politics, has
invited various political groups to present
their ideas to interested students.
The Movement for a New Congress,
Young Americans for Freedom, Young
Democrats and Young Republicans will
make presentations. Other campus
of any philosophy are
Committee Chairman Art Berger plans
to hold seminars and invite speakers to
increase student political awareness
during the present campaigns.
Berger's group of 10 volunteers,
housed in Suite A of the Union, believe
that any person can make changes in the
system. Election '70 tries to put each
person where he can be heard best.
"We are not backing any particular
candidate or party," said Berger. "We are

Governors of the seven residence
college Ehringha us, Granville, James,

of dorm living.
In addition, RCF last year took stands
on such issues as the war and the strike.
Assistant Director of the Department

RCF "one of the most reliable student

Besides the attempt to lower snack bar
prices, other projects discussed at
Wednesday's meeting included:
1) A master calendar listing the social
and academic programs of all the
residence colleges for a given month. This
calendar will be distributed to governors
of each college and may eliminate
overscheduling of worthwhile events.
October's calendar should be out shortly.
2) A project to award academic credit
for certain voluntary work programs. The
premise is that one hour of academic
credit should be awarded for every three
hours of volunteer work.
Long range projects include studies of
the feasibility and practicality of

Bello Urges Ideas
For New Chancellor
by Lou Bonds
Student Body President Tom Bello
urged students Thursday to nominate
canididates for the position of chancellor.
In an open letter, Bello urged students
to submit names of possible candidates to
the Advisory Committee on
Chancellorship no later than Nov. 1 .
The committee, headed by State Rep.
Ike F. Andrews of Siler City, will screen
candidates for chancellor.
J. Carlyle Sitterson, who has been
chancellor for four years, is leaving the
post to return to teaching.
Any student who wishes to submit a
name should address his written
nomination to: Secretary of Advisory
Committee on the Chancellorship, P.O.
Box 309, Chapel Hill, N.C.
If anyone wishes to make his
nomination in person, he should request
an appointment from the committee
secretary. The committee will accept
appointments between the hours of 2:15
and 5 p.m. on October 9.
Bello said, when possible, nominations
should include pertinent biographical
data and any other information which
would aid the committee in its evaluation
of the nominee.
He added the cutoff date of Nov. 1
was "to insure opportunity for careful
evaluation and comparison of nominees."
The committee is composed of alumni,
trustee, faculty, student and staff
representatives, ft wras convened by
Consolidated University President William
C. Friday to assist in the indentification
When the committee completes its
evaluations it will recommend three
candidates ' to President Friday. Friday
then will submit one choice ot the Board
"This is an advisory committee, not a
selection committee," Bello said. "We
want to coordinate efforts for as much
student input as we possibly can."

"The only problem is the fact that it is an
imposition to have a guy in your suite. If people
use consideration, then 24-hour visitation would
Jim Danaher, off campus, grad student:
"A group of people such as a floor should be
allowed to decide for themselves what kind of
visitation they want. There is really no place for
privacy except in your room. You have to go to
your room for any pmacy at all.

About 80 students, faculty members
and administration officials are expected
to attend a leadership conference this
weekend at Black Mountain.
Sponsored by the executive branch of
student government and CO. Cathey,
dean of student affairs, the conference
will focus on the role of the university
and higher education in the new decade.
Delegates will arrive at Black Mountain
at 4 p.m. today. Student Body President
Tom Bello and Dr. Maynard Adams ot
the school of philosophy will open the
conference at ,8 p.m. They will speak on
the identity of the university in a cultural
and ideological context.
Small groups will meet later tonight
and Saturday to discuss specific issues
concerning higher education in the
James O. Cansler, associate dean of
student affairs, said the conference has
been planned by a committee of students,
faculty and members of the student
affairs office last June.
'The purpose is to provide an
opportunity for representatives of the
three major segments of the University to
get away from the campus and discuss the
university and its role in the 1970's,"
In his invitation to delegates, Cathey
said, "Universities are troubled not only
by pressures from the larger community
which seeks to mold its life and purposes;
they are also troubled by
misunderstanding and apparent distrust
among faculty, administrators and
"We believe that distrust resides in
part in failure to know and to understand
the presuppositions upon which persons
in academic communities operate," he
This will mark the third such
conference held. Similar conferences were
held in 1966 and 1968.
University To Take
Carrboro To Court
by Rick Gray
The refusal of the town of Carrboro to
go along with a 140 percent increase in
the University's water rates will result in
court action against the town early next
Millard Rich Jr., assistant attorney
general for the state, said Thursday he
would file suit against Carrboro in Orange
County Superior Court if the town's
water bill is not paid by Tuesday.
Carrboro Town Manager Bill Britt said
the town could not pay the
approximately $8,500 which it owes the
University under the rate increase.
"We invite the action," he said. "The
Board of Aldermen is unanimous in the
opinion that we are on very solid ground
(in refusing to pay the increased rates).
"We do not plan to pay," he said.
The controversy began last spring
when the Board of Trustees of the
University approved a 140 percent
increase in the rates the University
charges Carrboro for its water.
The board's action increased
Carrboro's water rate from 50 cents per
1000 gallons to SI. 20 per thousand.
The increase went into effect July 1,
and shortly after it became effective the
Carrboro Board of Aldermen voted
unanimously to continue to pay for water
at the old rate.
'They (Carrboro) have submitted a
check which I assume is computed on the
old rate," Rich said. "The University has
refused to accept the check on our
The check, Rich said, was for
Vice Chancellor for Financial Affairs
Joe Eagles was out of town Thursday. His
assistant, John A. Temple, declined
comment on the suit.
Britt said Carrboro probably will base
its defense on the fact there are three
separate water rate schedules for
Carrboro, Chapel Hill and the University.
"We think we have sufficient evidence
to prove discrimination against Carrboro
in the exorbitant rate increase," Britt
