The North Carolina House passed a bill
Tuesday to bring the state abortion law in
line with the recent Supreme Court
decision. If the bill passes the Senate, a
woman would be able vto have an abortion
up to the twentieth week of pregnancy.
The bill was a substitute measure
written by a subcommittee of the House
Health Committee which included Rep.
Patricia Stanford Hunt of Orange County,
Rep. Willis Whichard, D-Durham County
and Rep. Frances Tomlin, R-Cabarrus
According to Whichard, the'
subcommittee tried to write a law which
would conform to ' the Supreme Court
decision but which x would, still limit
abortions as much as possible.
The court's opinion prohibits states
from forbidding abortions during the first
two trimesters of pregnancy,
approximately 24 weeks. In addition, the
opinion said that states could not restrict
abortion procedures until the second
trimester, and then only to safeguard the
health of the mother.
The House bill was drawn up,
according to Whichard, to allow abortions
only during the first 20 weeks. The
provision was included on the advice of
doctors who said that after that period,
the likelihood of live births was too great.
Several representatives opposed the bill
because, as Rep. William Hiatt, R-Surry
County, said," "I resent having to yield to
the nine lords of the U.S. Supreme Court
A floor amendment, introduced by
Firemen say of UNC
by Ken Allen
and Rick Sluder
The University is not paying its fair ,
share for community firefighting services,
Fire Chief Everette Lloyd told the Chapel
Hill Board of Aldermen meeting Monday
According to the University's assessed
property value, UNC should be paying
$183,000 for its fire protection, or about
58 per cent of the fire department's
budget, Lloyd said.
Presently UNC is only paying $45,000,
although the town has asked the
University for $55,000.
No action was taken by the aldermen
concerning Lloyd's suggestion.
The aldermen agreed to buy a new fire
truck with a water tower to reach high
rise buildings after Lloyd told them that
the department's present equipment is
inadequate for fighting certain types of

An amended version of the proposed
Student Government (SG) budget for
1973-74 received final approval from the
CGC Finance Committee Monday night.
The action came on a unanimous vote
in an eight-hour marathon meeting that
degree from the University of
Pennsylvania in 1922. A native of
Morganton, Ross joined the UNC faculty
in 1952 as the first chairman of the
Department of Obstetrics and
He stepped down as department
chairman in 1965, but was on the
teaching faculty until his death. In 1971,
Ross was honored by his former students
when the Robert A. Ross Distinguished
Professorship was established.
He entered the Medical Corps of the
U.S. Naval Reserve during World War I
and served again in World War II. Dr.
Rep. Patricia Stanford Hunt
Rep. John S. Stevens, D-Buncombe
County, was added to the measure which
would allow a doctor to refuse to
perform an abortion, or. a hospital refuse
to allow abortions to be performed.
In other House action, a bill to change
the date of the N.C. presidential primary
to July was re-referred to the Election
Laws Committee, in effect killing the bill.
The committee chairman broke a tie vote
in committee last week so that the bill
could be reported out to the House floor.

"One building at Memorial Hospital is
worth $58 million," Lloyd said. "That's
half as much as the town is worth. That
building is 14 stories. If they had a fire
and we rode over there with our 12
firemen, well, we'd be lost in there."
Lloyd also asked that well developed
residential areas outside town boundaries
be annexed for fire protection.
These areas would include parts of
Briarcliff, The Oaks, Farrington Hills,
Morgan Creek, Laurel Hill, Village West,
North Lake Forest and the Booker Creek
Lloyd further proposed a new fire
station on Farrington Road so that
protection could be provided to the
Chatham County line.
The fire chief said that besides the land
purchases, his main budget requests are
for a safety patrol van and for money to
establish a fire inspector's position.

Transcendental Meditation (TM) has 300
practitioners on campus now and the number is
growing. The last course to be offered on
campus this semester starts with an introductory
lecture at 7:30 p.m. in 100 Hamilton Hall.
Ken and Christine Leavitt are teaching the
course. They spent seven months in Spain last
year studying at the Maharishi International
University under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and
have been teaching in Chapel Hill since last July.
Meditators of TM claim that their grades
improve because TM expands one's awareness
and makes assimilation easier. Meditation takes
20 minutes in the morning and 20 at night. The
eight hours between are said to be ones of
Cloudy with a sixty percent chance

expected in' the mid 50's.
The patrol would consist of a roving
vehicle with two men and limited rescue
and emergency equipment. It would fight
small fires, report crimes to police, and
let other town departments know of
situations needing their attention.
In other business, the board refused to
act on a request by Henry Edmiston, of
Edmiston's, Inc., for an extension on a
special use permit for land development
at the intersection of Airport and Barclay
roads. Edmiston was told that in order to
continue land development he must
re-apply for a new permit.
The aldermen also approved a request
by the Council on Aging that the town
give $842 to aid in funding the Retired
Senior . Volunteer Programs (RSVP).
RSVP was established to "encourage
persons 60 years of age or older to engage
in volunteer service which will be
meaningful to themselves and beneficial
to their community," said Rev. Frank
Perry, chairman of the RSVP Task Force.
University assume some of the financial
burden for the campus groups which the
committee members said should not be
funded entirely from student fees.
The proposed budget calls for
$93,508.80 from student fees to go to
the Carolina Union, and $155,762.67 be
spent on other activities.
In addition, $35,000 for WCAR to
convert to FM broadcasting will be held
in a reserve account. The station will
receive the money if the student body
; approves the expenditure in a referendum
' this fall.
The budget contains a $29,644.97
deficit, which requires that $35,000 be
taken out of SG's General Surplus.
The Debate Team, which has been a
center of controversy since the
committee's first public hearing, received
an increase in their appropriation from
SG to $4,500. The budget calls for the
University administration to give the

"TM is an effortless technique requiring no
change in one's way of living," Leavitt said.

does not require concentration on an object, as
do most other similar disciplines."
The program starts with introductory lectures
