In Speech Before
by Bob Chapman
Chancellor J. Cailyle Sitterson
affirmed his concurrence with the
University's fall election policy Friday
while addressing the opening meeting of
the UNC Faculty Council.
"We commend students and faculty
for participation in the democratic
process, but we do not claim for the
academic community special privileges in
respect to the performance of our civic
and political responsibilities," Sitterson
Sitterson spoke on "Growth and
Change: The University in 1970."
Meeting for the first time this
academic year, the Faculty Council is
composed of elected representatives from
each department of the University.
Members are elected by fellow faculty
members for a three-year term and the
body meets regularly each month.

He served more than 40 years here as a
professor of Spanish in the Department
of Romance Languages.
He wrote 1 5 books on subjects relating
to Spanish language and literature and
numerous articles in academic journals.
Adams is survived by his wife, Mrs.
Dorothy Stearns Adams and a daughter

ID Pictures Are
During Postal Handling
by Doug Hall
Film containing the Identification
Card pictures of 5.200 University
students has apparently been lost or
stolen during postal handling.
Russ Scroggs, director of the UNC
Photo Lab, said Friday students holding
temporary ID cards with an expiration
date of Oct. 2 will have to return to the
photo lab to have their pictures taken.
The lab. located in the basement of
Swain Hall, will be open between 8 a.m.
and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for
the retaking of these pictures.
The film of students with temporary
cards dated Oct. l or Oct. 31 was not
included in the lost packages, and these
students do not have to return to the
photo lab. "
Defining the University's policy on fall
elections, Sitterson said the University
will not suspend classes during the
, .He asked faculty .merabershowever,
to work with individual students to
permit them to make up quizzes and
written reports due at election time.
The chancellor also invited all faculty
members to the University Day
celebration at 1 1 a.m. on Oct. 1 2.
'The University is approaching the
end of an era of rapid expansion,"
He pointed out that enrollment has
doubled during the past ten years, rising
from 8,592 in 1960 to more than 17,000
"During this decade of extraordinary
growth, our primary concerns have
necessarily been those of seeking large
numbers of new faculty and
accommodating larger numbers of
students," said Sitterson.
Funeral services will be held Sunday in
Old Chapel Hill Cemetery.
Today is the' last day to register in
Chapel Hill to vote in the November
Registration books will be open in the
Chapel Hill town hall from 8:30 a.m. to
12 noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Scroggs said the two lost packages of
film were reported missing last week and
a postal inspector in Raleigh told him a
postal trace "didn't turn anything up."
The loss of the film will cost the
University between $400 and S450,
Scroggs said, which is the cost of labor
involved in taking the pictures. He said
the University will file a claim with the
post office for the cost of the film.
Scroggs said another package of film,
containing the pictures of about 1.800
students, was lost in the mail about three
years ago. The film was later returned but
accompanying data cards, which match
the students with their pictures, was not
found, he said.
Since the loss of the pictures three
years ago. the photo lab has sent the film
via registered air mail, "hoping the Post
Office would treat it like a letter."

"At the same time," said the
chancellor, "the necessary problems of
rapid growth permitted the University
too little opportunity to analyze what we
. were .-doing ..with the. view of charting new .
directions and new emphases."
He suggested that as growth
moderates, the University will have time
to assess itself.
In other action of the Faculty Council,
a proposal was accepted to create a
graduate curriculum in ecology.
The curriculum of ecology, the science
of environmental systems, will lead to
M.S., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees.
According to the proposal, "there is an
unprecedented demand for professional
ecologists, not only on university
campuses but also in industry and
"Commensurate with the national
trend toward organized training in this
science," the report states, "the
University of North Carolina during the
past decade has emerged as a leading
institution in the training of professional
ecologists, although much of this training
up to now has taken place in independent
Even though ecology is a young
science, financial support is available
from diverse sources.
Requirements for an advanced degree
in ecology incorporate a sound and broad
training in the principles of ecological
science, selected associated training in the
biological environment and social
sciences, experience in representative
environments, special training in
quantitative methodology and an
approved research program relating to
academic ecological and environmental
Scroggs said. "I
we would get
"I regret terribly this inconvenience,"
he said. "As far as I know, however, we
have done what seemed reasonable to get
them (the pictures) there."
Scroggs said he wants to get the
pictures remade as soon as possible and
"to get on with the processing."
It will take much more time to have
the pictures made now than during the
week of registration because of the class
schedules, he said.
The athletic department. Student
Stores and the undergraduate library have
agreed to honor the temporary cards
dated Oct. 2. but urged students to return
for the photographs as soon as possible.
The package of lost film was mailed
from the University Sept. 16 to the
Connecticut Laminating Co.. New Haven.
Additional costs for the curriculum
have been estimated at about $72,000
and $95,000 for the first two years.

previously advertised their action as an

To Find A Fitting Use For The Yack.
One of the protesters describing his
fitting use for the Yack, said, "You get
more warmth from burning the Yack
than from reading it."
This graduate student, who gave his
name as 430-78-5035, said the ultimate
goal of the group "is to burn four Yacks a
week until they're all gone."
