commanding officer of the NROTC unit

With military branches moving toward
an all-volunteer force by the end of June,
1 973, the armed forces are having to
offer more to attract and keep good men,

RCF Starts
Tutorial
Program
by Jerry Klein
Staff Writer
Students who need fast, readily
accessible tutorial aid on a "one-stop"
basis may soon be able to get this help
due to a new type of program1 being
instituted by the UNC Residence College
Foundation (RCF).
The program will be regulated in each
residence college through the academic
lieutenant governors and each floor's
resident advisor.
"We don't want this to be taken
lightly like some tutorial programs are,
said Cecil Miller, chairman of the .Board,
of Academic Lieutenant Governors. :
In essence', the program will work on,
an "on-call" basis. Say, 'for instance,
student A needs help in the next few days
with three or four hard physics problems.
With existing tutorial programs, he'd have
to sign up, make an appointment and
then wait. Most likely, he'd have to pay.
With the RCF's new program,
however, all student A would have to do
is go to his resident advisor, who would
have a list of people willing to help for a
few hours.
Persons willing to give help through
this new system are urged to contact their
resident advisors or their college's
academic lieutenant governor. Students
needing aid are urged to take part in this
program.
At the regular Wednesday meeting of
RCF, Clayton Woodard was named the
editor of next year's "Carolina
Handbook," which is distributed to all
new students at the beginning of the fall
semester. The handbook was revived this
year after a three-year absence. Persons
with original art or writings can submit
these to Woodard to be used as dividers in
' the handbook.

talk about the role of ROTC in the
changing Navy.
A major topic of discussion was
"Project Volunteer." basically a
preparation for the all-volunteer force.
They decided the number of ROTC
student under scholarships, now limited
to a maximum of 5.500 each branch,
should double and that the S50 per
month subsistence allowance be doubled
to SI 00 a month.
Al bill including both requests is being
prepared for Congress. Anania said.
Another plan, to benefit midshipmen,
would increase the number of good billets
for summer cruise. A good cruise would
be one aboard a newer ship at sea which
stops at a foreign port. In order to recruit
students using the phones didn't pay their
bills," said the Chapel Hill Telephone
Company's commercial manager John R.
Cox.
"That is the only reason we. would cut
anybody's phone off," he said.
Charley Gaylor, a student legislator
whose phone in Granville South was cut
off, believes that the telephone
company's action was unethical.
"No one received a second notice that
they had a bill due," he said. "I don't
think cutting the phones off was justified
at this time."
Cox explained that telephone bills
were sent out Oct. 1, and were due Oct.
20. The decision to cut the phones off
this week was made "because our
accounts receivable situation is not good
at all," he said.
"Many people left the University last
year owing up to $300 for long distance
telephone calls," Cox stated. "We don't
expect to collect much of this debt."
However, the telephone company does

and keep good officers for the volunteer
force, a 20 percent pay increase rus aKo
been suggested.
Exactly 'Ahat etfect these changes will
have on NROTC. and especially ROTC at
Carolina, is uncertain. Suprisingiy. said
Anania. it is expected thai more students
will try to join, even without the worry
of a draft.
"We will not get men who are avoidinc
the draft and using NROTC as the lesser
of two evils." Anania explained, he said
students entering will have a positive
attitude toward the military, since they
will be looking toward the benefits of the
Navy rather than using it as an excuse to
avoid the draft.
Off
have the names of 226 people on campus
who collectively owe them over SI 1,000.
They have asked the University to take
action to collect the unpaid debts.
John L. Temple, Vice Chancellor in
charge of Business Affairs, said that a
decision on what action to take would be
made "within the next two weeks."
Temple does not believe the action
taken will be "punishment," but he said
the University will "do what it must" to
collect the bills.
Gaylor protested the $5 service charge
that must be paid before a telephone can
be cut back on. "I find this typical of the
service students get from the phone
company and I don't believe that we
should have to pay this charge."
He pointed out that persons dialing
one of the out-of-service phones will hear
it ringing as usual. "An operator should
cut in to say that the phone is no longer
in service," said Gaylor. "Someone could
dial the number uselessly for hours."

"And there are Navy men throughout th
world." he said.
A sufficient pay raise coupled wiih a
continuing recession will make-a job in
the military seem inviting. Anania said,
since jobs are becoming very difficult to
find.
With a reduction of forces and an
increase in salaries, there will be
increasing emphasis on quality.
The move toward making the Navy
more pleasant got its biggest boost from
the newly appointed chief of naval
operations. Adm. Elmo Zumwalt.
Innovations being put into practice by
the new head include a goal of a
1 5-minute limit on the time any sailor has
to wait in line for anything, expanded
liberty in port, permission for, sailors to
wear civilian clothes at shore installations
and a pilot program to fly wives and
families at their expense to ports where
their ships stay.
The move to take the starch out of the
Navy has a goal of making the Navy full
of fun and full of zest.
Even with the changes, the number of
ROTC students is being reduced. About
80 freshmen entered the program this
fall, 20 more than planned. Further
reductions are expected next year,
Anania related.
