The UNC Board of Governors
took three important actions
Friday morning in relation to that
subject dear to many students'
The board voted to raise tuition
for in-state students over the next
two years, and to ask the General
Assembly to abolish tuition
deposits and to give the board the
power to define residency for
The rise in in-state tuition is
actually , a minor one especially
when compared to the almost 100
per cent jump out-of-state tuition
has taken in the past two years.
In-state rates will rise $ 1 7 next year
and $14 more for 1974-75. This
rise is an effort by the board to
bring tuition rates for state
institutions with similar programs
into rough equality. Chapel Hill's
tuition rates will be the same as
N.C. State and UNC-G by 1974-75.
The Board's request to the
General Assembly on tuition
deposits is a most welcome one.
The legislature arbitrarily
imposed the requirement that
entering students deposit $100
toward tuition upon acceptance
and that returning students deposit
$50. Designed to help schools
project their enrollments, all the
deposits accomplished was
increased red tape u and actually
poorer enrollment projections. It
imposed a burden on students to
come up with the cash that was

the absurdity in th ir action two
years ago and repeal the tuition
But about 'domicile'
The single most significant
action on tuition, however, was the
board's request that they be given
the power to determine the
regulations regarding in-state and
out-of-state residency for tuition
purposes. In the past, the General
Assembly has jealously guarded this
power to try to keep "outside
agitators" out of the universities.
In recent years, the legal tangle
of residency has become
complicated with various courts
ruling variously on different cases.
That many students are registered
to vote in the state and yet pay
out-of-state tuition is one of the
injustices that demands solution.
With the rapidly developing area
of case law on residency for tuition,
the UNC system needs to be more
flexible in setting its regulations
than rules set by legislation will
permit. UNC also must be able to
recognize that students often
choose to become residents of this
state while still in school.
While the board would be able
to recognize this fine point of law,
the legislature probably lacks
appreciation of the situation so to
In short, the board would
probably relax the residency
regulations. The legislature is not
likely ever to take such a step.

We may accept as a definition of
"politico" the phrase "one who is
involved in student politics."
There are, however, a couple of
objections. One is that some of us have
friends who are involved in SG, and all
the saints may witness that none of us
would ever be friends with a politico.
Another objection is that, if we accept
this definition, the only way to get rid of
the politicos is to abolish student
Where have I heard that before?
Unfortunately, to abolish it, you'd
have to get involved in it a little bit, at
least, and with our definition, that's like
getting sort of involved with leprosy, or
getting a little bit pregnant.
Our definition, therefore, is
inadequate. Let us augment it. A
"politico" is one who is involved in
student politics, and who is bad. Now
we're getting somewhere.

Question: Is it possible for a woman to
have a satisfactory sex life after having a
hysterectomy? What changes, if any,
occur in a woman's response? Signed,
Dear Curious: Women who have
hysterectomies do indeed have full and
satisfactory sexual relations.
After a hysterectomy there is a period
of imposed abstinence during which the
wall of the vagina, where it was
connected to the uterus, must heal. This
usually takes about six weeks. After the
healing is complete intercourse can be
resumed without fear of harm or pain.
The removal of the uterus may mean a

of orgasm and, if the ovaries are removed,

important. Unless the proposal is

What they do is, these politicos, they
get on an odd sort of power trip

"it" being the decision process of the

I think we have it now. The politico
likes to be in groups where some sort of
"big" decision is being made, and likes to
throw his opinion into the group. This
constitutes being where "it" is at, and
"it" is in some places more than in
others. " '
Unfortunately, unless there is a lot of
work done beforehand, "it" never gets to
be anywhere. And work is a thing the
politico is not wild about.

Pregnancy and contraception are no
longer a hassle. All these changes tend to
bring about a sense of relief and freedom
which in itself can lead to greater
realization of sexual satisfaction.
Question: Is the tcondom really
effective as a birth control method? What
are the pros and cons for this method?
Dear Male: The condom ranks third in
efficiency after birth control pills and
IUD's. Pregnancy rates vary from five
percent to 20 percent.

about $2 for every person in town.
What will the bus system mean? The
bus system means a way of increased
mobility for the poor and the elderly, and
a corresponding decrease in traffic to
work. Many poor people, unable to
afford their own cars, are forced to take ,
taxis to work and to friends houses.
The buses will also allow increased
mobility for those with and without cars.

If the tree-climbing club request gets
to be controversial, then the politico
wants to be around when the decision is
made, and get his name in the DTH. But
he doesn't want to do the work.
Well, there are some people in SG who
are. willing to do the work and are
relatively unconcerned about the perverse
ego trip aspects. And some do both.
So the problem is insoluble. It's
impossible to weed out the bads from the
