The UNC Residence College
Federation has passed a resolution
supporting Student Legislature's position
on visitation self-determination and urged
the administration to adopt that same
policy.
The recommendation was made in a
meeting Wednesday evening in Parker
social lounge. The vote on the measure
was 63.
Thousands of dollars of damage to
elevators in high-rise Hinton James
dormitory last weekend may have
touched off an economic pinch for all
residence colleges, according to Morrison
Governor Robert Wilson.
Stauber Charges
Student Stores
by Bob Chapman
Staff Writer
It has become apparent UNC students
are not satisfied with the Student Stores,
the head of the Student Government
Consumer Protection Service (CPS) said
Thursday.
Karl Stauber, head of CPS, explained
the discontent with Student Stores by
recalling a recent statement by Residence
College Federation (RCF) co-chairman
Mark Evans, who said "it seems they
(Student Stores) are just out to make
money. The prices have become
outrageous."
Stauber also announced the CPS will
begin it campaign against the "T" sticker
issued to off-campus students which does
not allow the students to park on
campus.
A petition will be circulated today
which condemns the use of the sticker.
The petition reads: "While recognizing
the fact that the traffic office has great
demands upon its financial resources, we
believe that his unreasonable charge is a
repugnant example of the kind of
overcharge of students we reject, and ,we
petition for an adjustment to a more
equitable rate.
Stauber said the philosophy of the
Student Stores was define in 1966 in a

dropped from the cheerleading team
Oakley's first reaction to the decision
was, "I'm glad it's all over."
He said, "I was impressed ' with the
decision because I know it must have
been difficult for him (Rice), he still has
to contend with the alumni."
Barbara Yarborough, one of the two
sponsors, said Thursday, "Fred Sanders
(the other sponsor) and I will not make
any comment to the press."
Head Cheerleader Gunnar Froman
said, "Coach Rice said it all. He speaks
for all of us-Coach Sanders, Miss
Yarborough and myself."

presented late requisition requests which
included $914 in unbudgeted funds for
the orientation picnic.
Last spring, Student Legislature
budgeted $3,000 for the picnic. However,
the picnic was expected to net at least
$3,000 and thus pay for itself.
But the picnic turned a profit of only
$2,097, according to Robert Grady,
chairman oHhe finance committee.
Wilson related the problem at the RCF
meeting.
Mark Evens, RCF co-chairman, said
the action on visitation was taken because
RCF members decided a stand should be
taken by all students and student
organizations concerning the visitation
question.
"We feel that a statement to the
administration is necessary," he said.
"We have got to have organization. To
gain anything from the administration,
the students must be vocal and express
their intents and desires."
The resolution also urged all residence
colleges to lend support to
self-determination.
Some members of the RDF were
meeting of the Student-Faculty Stores
Committee as profit to support
scholarships, fellowships and athletic
grants-in-aids and service to provide the
tools for education.
"The answer given was that the
primary concern of the Student Stores
was service but that service and profit can
and must go hand in hand," Stauber said.
He added it was brought out at the
meeting that the Student Stores are
provided rent-free space.
Student Stores General Manager Tom
Shetley said snack bars get rent free, but
he said the store in the Daniels Building
must pay for heat, water and lights as
well as a big debt which it has to liquidate
through store profits.
Stauber noted students now have to
pay $25 per year in athletic fees, while
athletes also receive grants-in-aid from
profits of the Student Stores. He said he
favors students getting a more equitable
program.
Commenting on athletic scholarships,
Shetley said in hiw own mind he does not
consider them as coming from the stores
profits, but rather from profits from
campus vending machines. He said more
money is taken from vending machine
profits than is paid in athletic
scholarships from the Student Stores.

The length of Oakley's hair became an
issue after Rice received complaints from
alumni following the UNC-State football
game.
Rice said, "I consider that I am,
myself, chiefly to blame in that a set of
rules, or code, was not announced at the
beginning of the season."
He said, "This will be a year of change
for cheerleaders and sponsors. They will
have to work out things which will be
best for the overall program."
Asked about his hail policy Rice said,
"We do not have a rule at the moment."

Last week, the orientation commission
submitted late requisition requests for
$914 with the committee.
Grady said he did not know why the
commission asked for $914 instead of
$913, which would cover the difference
between $3,000 and $2,097.
Grady said the Finance Committee
froze the funds so it could study the
matter.

afraid enough pressure had already been
exerted on the administration by student
representatives, according to Evens, but
the majority saw the action as the duty of
RCF as the representative body of the
residence colleges.
Cinder blocks were pushed down the
elevator shaft off the tenth floor of James
last weekend, causing damage extending
into the thousands of dollars.
Robert Kepner, director of Resident
Life, said the elevators in James would be
repaired today.
Wilson, who was approached by Dean
Fred Schroeder about the problem of
vandalism, said the University
administration is looking for ways to
make the individual residence colleges
pay for overly-large vandalism costs.
Wilson said Schroeder told him the
University will set a maximum amount of
money to be spent by each dorm for
vandalism. Anything over this must be
covered by the residence college itself.
This proposal, said Wilson, is

Assistant Dean of Men Richard

possible."
The picnic contract called for the
Chicken Box in Durham to deliver
dinners for 4,000 people at a cost of
$2,96 1 plus $ 1 00 for Coca-Colas.
The food, served by inexperienced
students, only fed 2,500 people. The
amount of money taken in from the
students who paid 80 cents a plate only
totaled $2,097.
Grady said the Orientation
Commission budget was not authorized
to contract for the $3,000 spent on the
picnic, since the budget for the picnic was
cut by $1,000 at the special summer
session of the Legislature.
Grady further said he had never seen
any formal agreement between the
Student Government and the
Administration concerning the amount of
money to be expended by the
administration for orientation.
"There may be an agreement but I've
never seen it. Nor have I seen any
accounting at all of the funds the
Administration promised to expend for
Orientation," said Grady.

A petition protesting the conviction
and punishment of a fourth floor Hinton
James dormitory resident for a visitation
violation has collected more than 1,500
signatures.
The petition is being circulated by
Carr dormitory residents Carl Freedman
and John Simmons.
Freedman said the petition will be
given to Student Body President Tom
Bello who has agreed to present it to the
Trustee Consultative Committee which
meets Wednesday to consider the
visitation issue.
The protest began when the James
resident was convicted Monday of the
visitation violation and sentenced to
definite probation lasting until Jan. 31,
1971.
The violation occured the weekend of
Sept. 19.
The petition registers the protest for
the following reasons:
"This policy is irrelevant to the
funciton of the University as an academic
institution.
"This policy is in violation of the
policy of selfKietermination passed by the.
Student Legislature.
"This policy, at any rate, is widely
violated with the knowledge of many
persons in authority."

The advisory committee, formed last
spring at . the request of Consolidated
University President William C. Friday, is
composed of student body presidents and
faculty members from the six campuses
of the Consolidated University and by
members of the Board of Trustees.
The sentence of definite probation was
handed down to the student by a

'Growing Pains'
Hurt Democrats
Says Califano
by Bob Chapman
Staff Writer
The Democratic Party is going through
the same growing pains affecting the rest
of the nation today, former White House
assistant Joseph Califano said here
Wednesday night.
Califano was a member of former
President Lyndon B. Johnson's White
House staff and a trouble-shooter for
former Secretary of Defense Robert S.
McNamara.
His speech in Hill Hall opened a series
of speeches by national political figures
sponsored by the Carolina Forum.
Carlifano's topic, "A Vatican II for the
Democratic Party" touched on reasons
for the Democratic party's decline and
ways to reform the party.
"The Democratic Party is suffering the
same institutional and ideological
pains political and intellectual-that
plague most segments of American
society: Federal, state and local
government, labor unions, large
corporations, the Catholic Church,"
Califano said.
He said the pains are sharper for the
Democrats since "they are much closer to
more people than their Republican
colleagues or other political organization
on more extreme ends at the left and
right of the political spectrum."
Califano is author of "The Student
Revolution," published this year after he
took a journey in 1969 to study causes
and effects of student unrest in Europe,
Africa and the Middle East and Asia. He
