"Daddy" Ross, who died Sunday, will be held in the clinic auditorium of N.C. Memorial Hospital at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 21. "Dr. Ross was an outstanding teacher and a splendid doctor and a great humanitarian," said UNC President William C. Friday. "His impact ' on medical education was far-reaching," he added. Ross, chairman emeritus and professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the School of Medicine, earned his B.S. degree from UNC in 1920 and his M.D. Hotase to ..abortion chain. by Jody Meacham Staff Writer 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 County. 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 on this." A floor amendment, introduced by Firemen say of UNC by Ken Allen and Rick Sluder Staff Writers 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 night. 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 o ai(ui by Bill Welch Staff Writer 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 Ross 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 Gynecology. 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. ive i&ay 4 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. ittinffi Mare 'low fires. "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 Apartments. 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. 0 Years Of Editorial Freedom Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Wednesday, April 18. 1973 calls (DM) Tl o lasted until 3:30 Tuesday morning.

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.

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).

TM does not require concentration on an object, as do most other similar disciplines." The program starts with introductory lectures tonight. An explanation of TM will be given (The International Meditation Society is a non-profit educational organization, so price is merely for subsidy). Those interested in pursuing the course, plus any others who cannot attend tonight, will have another meeting at 7:30 p.m., Thursday in 100 Hamilton.
