On Significance of

(Editor's Sole: Tliis article is the last
in a scries discussing the Montreal
Conference last weekend which brought
together students, faculty members and
administration officials.)
Students who attended the Montreal
Conference held Last weekend praised the
general idea of the meeting but differed
widely on its significance.
The conference, co-sponsored by the
Office of the Dean of Student Affairs and
the Student Government, brought
together 72 students, faculty members
ttaeber Ctiar

and University administrators for two and
a half days in Montreal, N.C.
The purpose of the conference was to
examine the role of the university in the
70s and to improve communication
among the diverse elements of the
All the students interviewed agreed
that the conference was a meaningful
experience but disagreed on the reason
for the significance of the meeting.
The purpose of the conference was to
outline the trends the university will
undergo in the 70's and decide what
could be done with them," Claiborne
Jones, assistant to the president of the
Carolina Union, said.
"But -we didn't accomplish that at all.
"What we really did was to understand
each other in the "roles wiuch we must
play on campus." Miss Jones continued.
International Student Center chairman
Jeff Hilliker commented. "The
conference was just fun. Now if I want to
get something done on campus I know
where to go.
"But if anyone thought there was
going to be a change in the basic
philosophy or structure of the University
because of the conference, it just won't
happen," he explained.

The Consume Protection Service has
: recommended that Student Stores on the
Chapel Hill campus buy in bulk with
other campuses within the Consolidated
University in order to get cheaper prices.
"We can't let bureaucracy determine
our buying," he said. "It would be so
complicated that it would be

"ridiculous," citing the case in James last
weekend, which would wipe out James
"allotment" in one blow.
The RCF is presently looking for an
-alternative in this matter. Assistant
Director of Residential Life Fred
Culbreth noted that vandalism in the
dorms directly hurt the occupants of all
residence colleges.
Additionally, RCF Co-Chairman
Suzanne Wellborn asked each governor to
look for ways to bolt dormitory-owned
television sets to the floor, as stealing of
TV sets has always been a major problem.
It was also discussed at the meeting
that the Office of Residential Life will
conduct electirical survey, which will be
sent to occupants of all dorm shortly,
according to Culbreth.
The survey will attempt to determine
..the use of electricity in-each dorm,-with.
the purpose in mind of obtaining more
refrigerator permits where possible.
The Student Stores general manger
said the quality -would be lowered by
buying on state contract, since the brands
purchased would be determined by bid
rather than by quality.
Stauber said the campaign against the
Student Stores is not a persona vendetta
against Shetley or anyone else. "When a
student complains, it is our duty to place
this complaint to the appropriate body,"
he said.
The CPS tfiairman said he had received
several complaints concerning the
Student Stores.
'The Student Government is in no
way opposed to serving those students in
need," said Stauber. "Alternatives, more
equitable alternatives, do exist, though,
over the present system that many
students feel is unequitable."
The Student Stores manager said if
students have legitimate complaints, his
"door is always open to an individual."
Shetley pointed out that the
Student-Faculty Stores Committee which
was established by the trustees, acts as an
appelate court to student complaints. The
committee meets monthly to discuss
complaints and suggestions.
The committee is composed of three
students who are appointed by the
student body president, three faculty
members who are appointed by the
chancellor, the general manager of the
University and the general manager. The
committee will meet soon, according to
"We are competitive in our prices,"
Shetley noted. He added that many of
'the- ttowntown merchants would like to
see the Student Stores gone since its acts
as a price stabilizer.

"Any unrealistic idea about an
immediate effect on campus affairs was
squashed for me when I returned to
campus early to be involved in the brutal
fids of s-ch issues as visitation.
Medford served as defense counsel for
the resident of the fourth floor James
who was put on probation earlier this
week for violating the administration's
visitation policy.
The value of the conference to
Yack Editor Joe Mitchiner arose from a
somewhat different need.
"Working in the Yack office, I don't
have to face some of the problems of the
student government every day.
"I really got an education up there-it
gave me a much greater awareness of the
problems of the University," Mitchiner
But the "communication" which
characterized the conference for so many
people was seen in a different light by the
Yack chief.
"Sometimes the "communication up
there-all the words-almost ?ae me a
sense of comic relief.
"The Vonrr.uniution everyone
so desperately talking about and
attempting to achesve in some cases kept
people from understanding and trust!?!
each other, he explained.
The selection of participants,
particularly students, was again a
significant sore point amont the students,
as it was among faculty members ho
attended the conference.
i think there could have been a better
CToss-section of the students of the
University represented there, as several of
the professors said," Ralph May, a junior
from Raleigh who attended, commented.
"We could have gotten some people up
there who were non-invo!ved though I'm
not sure how you would find them.
Everyone up there was, without a doubt,
involved," May commented.

Get To S. C. Game Early
Gates serving students will open at
noon and students planning to attend the
UNC-South Carolina games are urged to
get to Kenan Stadium early, according to
an announcement by Athletic Business
Manager Vernon Crook. .
Crook requested students to take
advantage of the early opening time in
order to avoid congestion he said could
develop if they wait until 1 p.m.
The game is a complete sellout and
will begin at 1:30. There will be 14
student lanes at the gate.

Two University English professors, C.
Hugh Holman and Louis D. Rubin Jr., are
among three co-editors of a new textbook
anthology of Southern literature
published this week.
"Southern Writing, 1585-1920," a
994-page volume providing the most
detailed coverage ever made available of
the literature of the South up to modern
times, has been published by Odyssey
Press of New York, under the editorship
of Holman, Rubin, and Professor Richard
Be ale Davis of the University of
The new anthology, which includes
selections from the work of more than
150 authors from earliest colonial days is
designed for use in college and university
courses in Southern studies.
Among the innovations in the work is
its extensive recognition of the
contributions of black authors to the
South's literature. Six black Southern
writers-the slave poet George Moses
Horton, Frederick Douglass, William
Wells Brown, Booker T. Washington,
Charles Waddell Chesnutt and James
Weldon Johnson-are represented. Only
one of these has ever before had work
included in anthologies of Southern
The new volume is also notable for the
thoroughness with which it treats the
extensive but hitherto unexplored literary
output of the colonial South.
Each of the editors is a
nationally-known specialist in his period.
Professor Davis is author of a number of
books on colonial and early national
Southern literature, including the
prize-winning "Intellectual Life in
Jefferson's Virginia." Professor Holman
has written extensively on William
Gilmore Simms and has published books
on various aspects of nineteenth and
twentieth century Southern literature.
Professor Rubin is author and editor of
twelve books on Southern literature and
society, including the recent biography
"George W. Cable: The Life and Times of
a Southern Heretic. .

We don't mean to imply we're the
largest selling car. We're not, obviously.
What we do mean, though, is that
in the first five months of this year, the
new Audi 100LS has had greater sales
increases than any other German car.
(And the Germans make some pretty re
markable cars, like Mercedes, Porsche,
VW and BMW, to name just a few.)
Apparently, the Audi must really
have something. And what the Audi has
is this: Features that are more advanced
than just about every other car in the
world. (They should be. What with
sixty-one years of engineering experi
ence under our belt)
To begin with, there's front wheel
drive. So you can corner with the stabil
ity of a racing car.
And. speaking of racing cars, it
might interest you to know that the
steering system they use is the very same
steering system the Audi uses. It's called
rack-and-pirtion steering. And ifs the
simplest, most direct, most responsive
steering system a car can have.
V The Audi has inboard front disc
brakes. We put them right in the car' s
airstream to keep them cooL So you can
keep cool and not worry about them fad
ing. We also made them large enough to
bring an Audi moving 60 miles an hour
to a complete stop in about four seconds.
It also has a unique rear suspension.
Back there in the back, there's an axle
thaf s so flexible, that when one wheel
hits a bump, only one wheel goes thump.
(We had that axle patented, so forget
about looking for it on any other car.)
And as for the engine, well, it gets
about 26 miles to the gallon. Which is
incredible for a car that can go from 0 to
"50 in a mere 8 seconds.
Even the interior of the Audi is ex
traordinary. With seats that are not only .
very plush, but also very comfortable.
(They were designed by orthopedic sur
geons.) And a heating and ventilation
system that completely changes the air
every 30 seconds. And enough room for
afamilyof five.
' But enough said. Why not come in
and get to know the Audi the only way
you can. By driving it. (You can find out
where your nearest Porsche Audi dealer
is by calling 800-553-9550 free. Or, in
Iowa, call 319-242-1867 collect)
We're sure youTl be extremely im
pressed with the way the Audi perf orms.
In fact, it wouldn't surprise us one bit if
you said the Audi performs like nothing
you've ever driven before. .
. A lot of people in Germany have
said the very same thing.
