plan a series of actions to support Dean
C. Wilson Anderson, who was reportedly
notified this summer by Provost J.C.
Morrow that he will not be recommended
to a second five-year term as dean.
Anderson, dean of the department
since 1965, was informed on June 30 by
Morrow that his term, which expires June
30, 1971, will not be extended, according
to Betty Aquila, spokesman for the

capacity until June 30, 1971, Chancellor
J. Caryle Sitterson announced.
After a six-month leave of absence, he

"In June the Dean was verbally
informed by Provost Morrow that he
would not be recommended for
reappointment. The Dean was informed
by the Provost that the reason for his lack
of recommendation was the political
embarrassment to the University caused
by the employment of Howard Fuller and
the attempted employment of Howard
Lee, both of whom are black educators
with social work credentials.
"The racial and political implications
of the Dean's not being recommended for
reappointment are blatently opposed to
the principles of a free university.

the door for similar situations throughout .

made a recommendation. "I will send the
Chancellor a recommendation later in the
year," he said.
Morrow would not comment on any
aspects of the recommendation.

up to him," Morrow said.

petition urged the Chancellor to
recommend Anderson for reappointment.
Miss Aquila said five faculty members
in the department conferred with Morrow
on July 7 and were told that "there was a
considerable lack of confidence in
Anderson on the part of the Board of
Trustees and administration, and this
reduced the effectiveness of the dean."
Aquila said Morrow referred to the
appointments of Fuller and Lee.
Fuller, a black nationalist and head of
Malcom X University in Greensboro, was
appointed as lecturer in the department
of Social Work in the spring of 1968, but
resigned after a controversy with the
University and the Board of Trustees.
Mayor Howard Lee of Chapel Hill was
offered a job with the department in fall,
1969 but withdrew his name after
encountering opposition from
administrators and trustees.
Miss Aquila said that Morrow's action
was "professionally, a slap in the face"
for the department.
She said Morrow had "made up his
mind" before consulting any faculty
.members within the department.
"Each faculty member was told in the
individual conference with Morrow that
he (Morrow) would not recommend
Anderson for another term," said Miss
"Some of the faculty members," she
commented, "were told to provide
suggestions for another dean."

"The University is trying to cover it up
and deny anything that has happened,"

knowing about it."

The concert featuring the jazz-rock
band "Chicago," scheduled for
Homecoming weekend, sold out Monday
afternoon on the first day of ticket sales.
Negotiations have begun with the
group to present a second show in
Carmichael Auditorium on Sat., Oct. 31,
to accomodate the expected crowd.
Carolina Union President Richie
Leonard said the 7,000 tickets for the
show were sold by 3 p.m. Monday, only
six hours after they had gone on sale.
When all tickets had been sold there
were still some 400 people in a line
winding around the Union Building,
hoping to get tickets.
The unprecedented demand for tickets
has caused concern that scalping, selling
tickets at inflated prices, may occur.
Student Body Attorney General John
McDowell said selling the tickets for the
concert at a profit "would be interpreted
as an Honor Code offense and as such
would be prosecuted by this office."
Archie Copeland, assistant director of
the Union, said late Monday that
negotiations for the second show were
underway. The results of the negotiations
will be announced Thursday, he said.

"I think if we could schedule a second
show, it too would be a sell-out," he
continued, "Besides all the students who
did not get tickets, there would be so
many faculty and staff members, as well
as members of the general public, who
would buy tickets."
The sell-out of the 7,000 tickets is one
of the few in the history of Union
concerts and is by far the quickest such
sale, said Leonard.

Dimension sold out in two days, while

'Too Damn Long
by Lana Starnes
"This line is too damn long!"
At least that's what one student
standina outside of the Carolina Union
said while waiting to get tickets to the
Oct. 31 Chicago concert.
A line encircled the Union for about
six hours Monday and students waited as
long as three hours to purchase tickets.
The line began as a circling, maze-like
column inside the Great Hall. About
noon several lines were combined and
many students became irate when, after
waiting for several hours, they found
themselves again at the end of the line.
