Committee Chairman Grady told last Thursday's session of SL that, in the opinion of the Finance Committee, the regulations were "outrageous."' Bell said the requisitions do not call for an additional appropriation to be made but are intended to draw additional money from other categories specified in legislature's $6,700 total budget approgriation to the commission. The additional money would be paid to Chichen Box in Durham in return for dinners provided for the picnic Student Legislature last spring appropriated $7,700 to the entire Orientation Commission program.

Friday as an advisory body, the Consultative Committee is composed of student body presidents, graduate student body presidents, faculty members from the six campuses of the Consolidated University and members of the Board of Trustees. In a memorandum to committee members presidential assistant Richard H. Robinson, Jr., said "The president requests that the Consultative Committee consider this matter and furnish him with advice on the following issues, which he inturn will communicate to the Administrative Council." Should there be administrative limits on dormitory visitation privileges or should each residential unit be permitted to determine its own policies, free from administrative restraint? If administrative limitations are to be adopted, should such limits, with respect to both hours and days of visitation privileges, be adopted on a uniform, university-wide basis or should each campus administration be encouraged to adopt its own policy with respect to limits on hours and days of visitation. If a uniform, University-wide policy of limitations is to be adopted, what ought to be its provisions? After the Consultative Committee has considered these questions it will make recommendations to Friday. Friday will present the ' recommendations to the Administrative Council at its meeting at the beginning of next month. Any changes in the visitation policy will be made by the Administrative Council, which is composed of the chancellors of each university branch, President Friday and his staff. The Consultative Committee meeting was requested by Bello to resolve the conflict between the administration's visitation policy and the "self-determination" visitation policy adopted last spring by the Student Legislature. - The legislature policy allows each living unit to determine and administer its own visitation policy. The administration policy limits visitation hours and imposes guidelines for the formulation and enforcement of each unit's visitation regulations.

These appropriations were amended in a special summer session of SL and cut the total Orientation Commission funds by $1 ,000, leaving a total of $6,700. Bell said the commission contracted with Chicken Box to provide food for 4,000 picnic dinners at a total cost of $3,000 or 75 cents a dinner. The dinners were to be sold to picnic participants at 80 cents a dinner for the freshman picnic September 12 and one dollar a dinner for the junior transfer picnic September 14. - According to Bell, 3,600 dinners were to be provided for the freshman picnic and 400 dinners were to be delivered at the junior transfer picnic. onnse policies of the three houses were within the guidelines set by Student Legislature, SL refused to allow student courts to try residents for violating the administration policy.

Not all girls are in favor or 7-24," said Cathy Myers, president of Joyner dormitory. "AWS is the representative of all girls on campus, and campus wide, girls are in favor of self-determination." However, Bell clained only 300. dinners were actually delivered to the junior transfer picnic. In lieu of the shortage, .the Orientation Commission informed Chicken Box manager J. W. Price that the commission would only pay a total of $2,925,$75 less than had originally agreed to. Bell said two payments totalling $1,997 were issued to Chicken Box. A sum of $1,733.46 was paid for the freshman picnic and $263.64 was paid for the junior transfer picnic.

Grady reported to Legislature that the commission netted only $2,097 from the picnic while serving only 2,500 dinners from the food which was intended to serve 3,900. An arrangement last spring between the administration and Student Government provided for half of the Orientation Commission's budget to be shared equally between the two factions. However, since the total commission budget of $6,700 is involved, the amount shared would be considered at the end of the year. , The Finance Committee asked legislature last Thursday for more time to consider the appropriations and study the information given. , fThe picnic requisition will be considered along with other Orientation Commission requests that include items from other commission categories. IThe Finance Committee is expected to report to legislature its findings on the requests at the Thursday night session of SL this week. n O eireinnninesiiinoe The AWS statement said, "We feel self-determination is the only policy consistent with the principles of student government." Dorm presidents conducted informal polls last week to determine the feeling of women students. Miss Vallier said, "We believe the women students on, campus should state what we feel. If nothing was said, it appeared as if our feeling was negative." She said the AWS stand would show more student support when the issue is presented to Consolidated University President William C. Friday's Consultative Committee Wednesday. The policy is not intended to affect other student groups' support for the Student " Legislature stand. "If, they haven't decided by now, our support won't affect them any," said Miss Vallier. "How can you believe in student self-government and not believe in self-determination? It is the only thing consistent," said Miss Myers. She said Joyner is in favor of self-determination.

Spencer dormitory, which has a limited Open House policy on weekends and none during weekdays, is "over whelmingly in favor of self-determination," said Nancy Burbage, house president. "Whether it's 7-24 or just on weekends, each living unit should be able to decide for itself. It's only fair," she said. Whitehead dormitory, which also adopted a restrictive Open House policy, "is in favor of self-determination," according to Tamara McMackin, house president. "Self-determination can work in both ways," said Miss McMackin. "A living unit can adopt the maximum or none at all." West Cobb adopted the maximum University policy. "For us, that is enough," said Sandra Snyder, president. "But each dorm should be allowed to decide to' have more or less hours." Miss Snyder also said there were certain provisions in the administration policy that students objected to, which self-determination could overcome. "For example, in Cobb the doors tend to blow open. This is an inconvenience to other girls on the hall as well as to the individual," she said. found the first student legislature on campus. Harris also edited the "Carolina Magazine," wrote extensively for the Tar Heel and was tapped into the Golden Fleece, campus student honorary for men.

Student Unit On Housing To Organize by Lana S tames Staff Writer A committee to study the married student housing situation will be organized Wednesday at 8 p.m. in the Community Center on Branson Street in Odum Village. The unit will be called the housing committee of the Odum Victory Village Board of Alderman. Odum and Victory Village provide married student housing. The committee is being formed in response to many residents' fears of . a student housing shortage. A spokesman said formation of the committee was inspired in part by . demolition of houses in Victory Village last spring. In that incident, residents received eviction notices from the University two days after getting written assurance no housing was to come down in the near future. The homes were torn down and a parking lot built in their place. The University has no plans to replace demolished student homes in Victory Village with new housing elsewhere. In addition, long-range plans call for further expansion of the medical complex in the area. However, University Director of Engineering Allen S. Waters said he knew of no immediate plans for demolition of more student housing. One goal of the housing committee will be to get low-income housing. Dave Landrey, a member of the Board of Aldermen, said the committee needs help from city planning and law students as well as Village and Odum residents, in that effort. According to Landrey, University Vice Chancellor Joe Eagles assured him that any proposal by the committee would be read. Eagles provided Landrey with names of officials to contact about land available to the university.
