The Orientation Commission Monday
refuted charges of irregularities in
orientation picnic expenses.
Locke Bell, head of the commission's
picnic operations, said in a statement no
request for an additional picnic

been made. Instead, Bell said, the
commission requested" a redistribution
of funds" already apprepriated to the
commission - bv the 1970- 71 . Student

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.

visitation policies which violate the
administration guidelines. Since the

These appropriations were amended in
a special summer session of SL and cut
the total Orientation Commission funds

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

picnic September 14. -
According to Bell, 3,600 dinners were

the junior transfer picnic.

5t Unanimous Vote

The Association of Women Students
voted Monday night to support the
Student Legislature policy of
self-determination by individual houses in
establishing Open House.
The AWS policy support was intended
to -make it clear, "self-determination is
not synonymous with seven day a week,
24-hour Open House," said AWS
president Mary Vallier.
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.
According to Bell extra expenditures
for slaw and soft drinks have been met by
the administration bringing the total
amount needed to meet contracfprices to
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.
The AWS statement said, "We feel
self-determination is the only policy
consistent with the principles of student
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. It adopted the
maximum Open House policy allowed by
the University on weekends and 4 p.m. to
closing during the weekdays.

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
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
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.
