Two bills - one to limit campaign
spending in campuswide elections, the
other to place ballot boxes in the law and
medical schools will be sponsored in
Student Legislature (SL) by Richard
I:pps, student body president.
J-pps said he is introducing the bill to
limit campaign spending because he feels
too much money is being spent on
campuswide campaigns. This, he feels,
makes holding an elective office an
impossibility for a student of average
The bill tentatively sets campaign
spending limits at a maximum of SI 50
for each student body presidential and
vice presidential candidate. This would
include all donations.
Fpps also hoped the measure would
inhibit spending in residence college and
"I don't feel money should be the
determining factor for election," said

Lieutenant Governor Pat Taylor.
"Now you know they wouldn't be
doing that sort of thing if he didn't
approve it," Bowles said. Under pressure
from newsmen's questions, the candidate
said he had information indicating Scott
had talked personally to several people in

The other measure which Fpps
supports is the placement of ballot boxes
in the medical and law schools. The
Graduate and Professional Student
Federation (GPSF) asked for this measure
in an SL meeting before the Feb. 2V
election, but was turned down by a 19-10

professional students from exercising
their right to vote.
These measures will be introduced to
committees today. The bills will
probably reach the SL floor Thursday

Bowles said he had to spend much
more money on television campaigning
because of his opponent's well-known
He also denied he was "one of the big
boys." Although he was on the Board of
Directors of First Union National Bank
(FUNB) before he started his
campaigning, he pointed out he had
resigned ail his company positions.
"I now have no official connection
with FUNB," Bowles said. "That's more

Bowles said he thought his business
sense would help him do a better job as
governor. He charged that the present

use instead of raising taxes if he were

All freshman women IX years or older
may have self-limiting hours next fall if a
proposed change in women's rules is
approved by the administration.
The Association of Women Students
(AWS) unanimously approved the change
in rules which was proposed by Women's
Forum at their meeting Monday night.
AWS also announced the formation of
an escort service for women based in the
undergraduate library starting Monday.

The planned dorm rent increase using
different rates for men's, women's and
coed housing will go into effect next fall,
according to Robert Kepner, director of
the Office of Residence Life.
The rent increase, Kepner said, is
mandatory due to increasing costs for
dorm maintenance. He predicted dorms
would lost 5130,000 next year if rents
stayed the same.
The decision to continue using
different rates for men and women "is
based simply on making those who use
the extra services pay for them," he said.
"The last rent increase went into effect
in the fall of 1968. At the end of fiscal
year 1968-69, we had a S44.000 surplus.
With the same rents in 1969-70. we had a
S5,500 surplus, which is not much if you
are trying to run a break-even operation
involving over two million dollars."
With the same rent in 1970-71, Kepner
said an S8,800 deficit was registered.
"This deficit would have been much
higher except for a higher occupancy
tvel than we expected.

Service station owners, oil company
interests and the League of Women
Voters had their say before the Board of
Aldermen and the Planning Board
Monday night over proposed amendments
to the town's regulations for gasoline
The amendments, which have been in
the making for more than a year, were
proposed in response to public concern
that "self-service pumps were jumping up
like mushrooms all over the place," said
Town Planner Harry Palmer.
The proposed ordinances prohibit any
new service stations in the Central
Business District. They also limit the
number allowed in suburban and regional
commercial districts through strict access
standards, limitations on signs and
"Until such time as the experts can get
together and say it is not harmful, I am
still opposed to legalization." Bowles told
the crowd of approximately 400 students
who gathered at The Pit.
In his opening speech, Bowles called
for greater vocational training, no new
taxes and a commission to enforce a
standard of ethics for stale government
employees and officers.
In response to a question on state
enforcement of sexual morality, he
replied public actions should be regulated
since they might be offensive to some

your own business, what you do in your
Bowles touched on busing, the N.C.
Women's Political Caucus, prison reform
and industrial development in answering
the students questions.

If self-limiting hours are granted, a
student wil! automatically have voluntary
sign-out for overnight absences.
The present policy grants self-limiting
hours automatically to second semester
women and above. Parental permission is
required for self-limiting hours for first
semester freshman women.
Un'der the new rules, registered guests
in women's dormitories who are IS or
older may receive self-limiting hours.
Each hostess would obtain in advance an
identification card for her guest which
"With the rates at this year's level," he
continued, "we could expect a deficit of
S 130,000. With the rent increase, we
should just about break even."
Kepner listed three reasons why
women's dorms were more expensive to
maintain than men's dorms: women's
dorms need security personnel for
after-hours procedures: women's dorms
have more space per person than men's
dorms; and there is more administrative
staffing, including full-time personnel, in
"All these involve extra personnel," he
said, "and personnel is our largest single
expenditure in dorm maintenance."
Because of the decision to cut back by
20 percent the housekeeping done by
dormitory personnel. Kepner said, SI 2.50
per student per semester has been cut
from the projected rates. "This cut-back
in housekeeping was supported by the
Chancellor's Advisory Committee on
University Residence Life (CURL) and by
the Residence College Federation." he
Under the new housekeeping system,
janitors and maids will clean private
rooms only twice a year, on an
displays, the amount of screening and
setback required, and strict zoning
Despite strong support for the new
regulations from the League of Women
Voters, there was much opposition from
several local service station owners and
from an attorney of the Humble Oil Co.
Most of the dissatisfaction was over
vague wording and stiff restrictions on
future service stations which, if passed,
would make many existing service
stations non-conforming to the
Attorney for the Humble Oil Co.
Cordon F. Battle thinks the restrictions
are unreasonable. He asked the aldermen
and the town planners if they knew how
many existing lots would qualify for
special use permits to build service
stations under these restrictions.

Kepner said beginning next year the
University will try to break even on
dormitory rents every ear. instead of
incurring large surpluses and deticits. "In
the past." he said, "we have raised rents
to above our cost, and gotten urpluses.
Then, when costs went up. we hud
deficits. From now on. we will try to
adjust rents to match costs every year."
Kepner said the trend toward coed
dorms night mean "in the long run. dorm
rent for men and women will begin to
even up. Also, our costs might go down if
we cut back more expenditures as we
have in the case of housekeeping."
Under the increased rates, rent for a
double room in a men's dorm will go
from SI 50 10 SI 59.50 per semester.
Women's rates for a double room will go
from SI 90 to S209.50. Single room rates
for men will go from S225 to 244.50.
Women's single room rates will go from
S285 to S3 19.50.
In coed dorms, single rooms will go
from S225 to S259.50. and double rooms
will so from SI 50 to SI 69.50.
Palmer answered that although he did
not know the exact number, it would
probably be between 6 and 15 lots as
presently zoned. However, he explained,
lots could be rezoned. raising the number
of potential stations substantially.
Battle said Humble Oil believes the
particularly unreasonable stipulations are

other service stations.
