"In addition, and for similar reasons,
the Council recommends that campus
police adopt the new non-military
uniform (as used by Chapel Hill police)
during daylight hours arid while
performing normal policing, traffic
control and similar duties."
According to the Lehnen and Heintz
resolution the chancellor, with the advice
and consent of the Advisory Committee,
would have sole power and responsibility
to set guidelines for the use and control
of weapons by campus police and to
determine when a situation calls for the
wearing or use of lethal weapons.
Dr. Daniel A. Okun, chairman of the
Faculty Council, said he would offer a
substitute motion similar to the
Under the Lehnen-Heintz resolution,

Chapel Hill police, state patrolmen or
National Guardsmen, could not come on

Should these officers come on campus,
the resolution says, the personnel should
use non-lethal equipment to control
order-i.e., helmets, masks, shields, tear
gas or similar equipment designed not to
produce fatal injury.
Another proposal in the resolution
calls for additional training of the campus
police in techniques of crowd control and
the use of firearms and non-lethal
weapons. Such training, according to the
resolution, might be supported with
funds and assistance from the Law
Enforcement Assistance Administration
of the Department of Justice.

mentioned, I was disturbed about the class."
Martz said he requested a course syllabus and book list from Frank for further
evaluation of the class. "We talked this (Thursday) morning when Nyle brought
these," Martz said.
Martz said his decision to suspend Frank was "unavoidable in light . of the
circumstances." His letter read, "With genuine regret, therefore, but with concern
for the students enrolled in your sections of Political Science 41, I herewith am
suspending you with pay from your teaching responsibilities for the remainder Qf
Martz disclosed there is no "formal machinery for the appeal of such a decision."
He added, however, "I want him to have the opportunity to appeal. We're using the
Grievance Committee so there will be no danger that I have a distorted picture. It's
up to the committee to gather the facts and make a recommendation back to me."
Prof. James Prothro is chairman of the group. He will be out of town on business
until Tuesday, after which Martz hopes the case will get underway "as soon as
This will be the first such case to arise -within the department, according to
Concerning the specific charges lodged against Frank in the letter, Martz
disclosed the charge involving failure to meet classes stemmed from instances when
"Frank took his class on field trips or to other campus areas without notifying the
department." Martz said such procedure is specifically required. .
In the case of failure to institute a grading system, Martz said his understanding
was "that he (Frank) had given no grades as yet. I am concerned that students
know their progress throughout a course."
Martz requested an announcement be made that Frank's two sections of Political
Science 41 will meet next week at the regularly scheduled times with an instructor
to be announced.
Frank met with both classes today. He denied all the charges made in the letter,
questioning their phrasing.

"War is obsolete. War is too destructive
to make sense."
That is as the opinion of First Lt.
Cornelius Cooper, one of the speakers at
an anti-ROTC meeting Wednesday night,
who continued to say "The Army is not
relative; it's evil, immoral and perverted."
Cooper and First Lt. Dave Vaught,
both 1969 graduates of West PoinJ,
spoke to a sparse crowd of 100 students
at the meeting in Murphey Hall.
- Vaught said the Army is taking a
relatively calm attitude toward the
anti-war movement within the military.
"The Army is getting smarter; they have

learned from past experience. They want
to channel the dissent to unimportant
things, minor issues, in effect, having
people chase their tails. But if you can
change one of their sacred cows, then
they will take action against you."
Vaught said, "the military plays a
negative role in society" and called ROTC
"a negative enterprise."
Cooper and Vaught are both principle
organizers of "Concerned Officers
Movement (COM) of Fort Bragg," a group
attempting to demonstrate the sentiment
among officers against the war and in
support of GI rights.
Speaking of racism in the Army,
Cooper related, "The degree of racism
within the Army is no greater than within
society; the Army is a reflection of
Commenting on the Calley trial,
Vaught said, "Calley is not the exception,
the Army is trying to transfer the blame
onto one individual."
The speeches preceded a march to the
Naval ROTC Building to serve an eviction
notice. The notice, read to the marchers
who gathered on the lawn in front of the
Naval ROTC Building on Columbia St.

scale. I made out one of my own.

Asked to elaborate on the "failure to meet professional standards" Martz
reported he had received a complaint from one student in the class that "a regularly
scheduled meeting of the class was held late one night and the class got drunk."
Frank flatly -denied the charge, saying the meeting was "one of several
"We decided to have a midnight session, but this was not a regularly scheduled
class," he said. "I do not know anybody that got drunk."
Frank expressed concern for the academic standing of his students. I intend to
stay here and fight until my class gets the grades it deserves," he said.
The organizer of the Invisible University of North Carolina, a system of off-beat
informal campus classes popular with students, suggested his recently publicized
activities and unusual appearance (half-beard, half-mustached face with a blue cape
and crown) may have been a factor in the dismissal.
Martz replied the activities of IUNC were popular with the department. "I only
regret that because of a luncheon date, I could not see the coronation," he said.
Frank commented on the situation Thursday night. "Personally, I am very glad
this came up," he said. "I think it may help a lot of students enrolled in the
University of North Carolina.
"I think the issues to be decided here are very important for the future of
tax-supported education in this state.
"While my lifelong commitment is to education along the lines of the Invisible
University, I think-this issue is of grave importance to the University in determining
the flexibility and freedom of a tax-supported university.
4 I can understand the University's position and hope this will lead to a very
fruitful debate on the purposes of education.
"Essentially, I believe people will learn when they feel they have a need to learn.
The most an instructor can do is to attempt to excite or introduce students to a
much of his discipline as possible."

strike by the Amalgamated Transit

The old contract between the bus
company and the Amalgamated Transit
Union local, which represents the bus
drivers, expired at midnight Monday. The
drivers voted, however, to grant a
three-day extension to the contract in
order that negotiation might continue.
The main difference separating the
company and the drivers appeared to be
the drivers' demand for an automatic pay
increase because of the rise in the cost of
The negotiators for the union and the
company, together with federal mediators
who joined the negotiations, worked
almost continuously from Tuesday until
Thursday to try to get a settlement.
Both the union and the company
brought in top national officials to help
settle the differences.
Bailey Cobbs, head of the Student
Transportation Committee, said Thursday
the idea that the bus system might be
kept in service with non-union drivers was
"If union drivers don't drive, there will
be no bus service," he said.
Cobbs also said Student Government
was going to avoid becoming involved in
"The Student Government interfering
with management-labor relations would
be detrimental to the University's image,"
The campus bus system is currently
operated and maintained by the Student
Transportation Committee in cooperation
with the University Traffic Safety
This is the bus system's third year of
operation and this year the system is
again running a deficit, according to
"The buses have 2,700 to 3,000 riders
a day, but we're still losing money,"
The University subsidizes the bus
system by making up any differences
between the amount of money taken in
by the line and its cost.

Raleigh company connect South Campus,
