"We weren't called in until the
University asked for photographs and
we don't have any specific plans to go on
from this point," Blake said.
Using telescopic lenses, the
photographers took 40 or 50 pictures
which were being developed Tuesday.
"We don't anticipate any arrests from
the photographs," Blake said.
"The photos will be given to the
captains or lieutenants who will be
assigned to the case to give them some
idea of what is going on," he added. ;
James Cansler, assistant dean of
student affairs said he assumed the
photographs would be used to identify

New campus : political party
by Art Eisenstadt
The first serious political party to enter
campus politics since the late 1960's got off
to a confident, but somewhat disorganized
start Monday night.
;U.AbQit25 students, many of them already
involved . in Student (Government (SG),
attended an organizational meeting of the
After about an hour of discussing various
issues, an eight member executive board was
set up to get the party organized.
Mark Dearmon, chairman of the
Publications Board and a member of the
Campus Governing Council (CGC), was
selected as chairman of the executive board.
Dearmon and Ben Steelman, another
CGC member, presided over the meeting.
Dearmon had originally hoped to discuss
student issues and possibly set up a tentative
platform at the meeting. But several students
suggested that some sort of party structure
be formed before discussing issues.
Ed Furr, a member of the Association of
International Students (A1S), complained
that the organizers' intent seemed to be
simply gaining political office. He then
walked out of the meeting.

Thousands of college students nationwide may no longer be eligible for1 the government
food stamp program, due to a recent government ruling.
The regulation, announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture last Tuesday, will
restrict students who receive more than half their income from parents who are ineligible for
Stamps. Those who are listed as tax dependents by their parents will also be excluded, the
Washington Post reported last week.
The announcement came amid Student Government plans for a new food stamp
consultation committee. '
The committee would encourage students to apply for the food stamp program, according
to Cecil Gordon, special assistant to Student Body president Marcus Williams. With the new
ruling, however, it appears that few students will now be eligible.
"1 think very few students will qualify for food stamps," under the recent ruling, William
Geer, director of student aid at UNC said. The new ruling was effective last Friday.
Single college students could formerly apply for the stamp program if they had an income
under $194 per month, by presenting complete financial data to the local social services
office. Students were eligible regardless of family income.
No estimates are available of the number of affected students, but surveys indicate
thousands already receive stamps. University officials could not estimate how many students
are now on food stamps. "This (the new ruling) in an effort to link the student with his
family," Geer said Tuesday. "That's OK if the student is a tax dependent of his parents. If, as a
matter of fact, he is independent financially, then he is not connected with his family and
should be eligible.
The aim of the new Student Government group, Gordon said Tuesday, will be to make
students aware of food stamps and to determine who is eligible and who is not." Gordon
believes that many students will still be eligible for the stamp benefits..
. "A lot of students' families are eligible but the students themselves fail to sign up because of
embarassment,,, he said. Only 33 per cent of those eligible nationwide buy stamps.
Tentative plans were for volunteer members to begin the service within the month.
Students who signed up for stamps would be asked to report the value of stamps received to
the UNC student aid office, Gordon said, since such benefits would constitute a change in
Gordon will meet with Roslyn Hartmann, assistant dean of student life, Thursday to
' present his plan and discuss possible alterations.
"This involves a question of student emancipation, and at the moment it is an unresolved
question. It is always possible that students may be discriminated against simply because they
are students," Geer said. . ;
"I believe the laws are correctly administered by the food stamp administration for any
student eligible for stamps under law." '.
The conflict, he said, is that the administration has not "clearly, fully defined the

WASHINGTON Promising to better
reflect the public mood, the 94th Congress
began Tuesday with a formal low-key
session that masked the . Democratic
majority's already keen competition with
President Ford to claim responsibility for an
anticipated tax cut.
The galleries were filled with relatives,
friends and campaign workers of the new
senators and congressmen, who promptly
took the oath of office from House Speaker
Carl Albert and Vice President Nelson A.
Rockefeller, who was presiding over his first
full meeting of the Senate.
The entire first day was consumed by such
formalities an often mundane process
which was transformed when Senate
Democrats decided hot to seat either of the
contestants for the disputed New Hampshire
seat until the Rules Committee completes an
The focus nonetheless was on the
economic program which Ford outlined on
national television Monday night in advance
of his official State of the Union address
before a joint session of Congress
.Wednesday and how it would mesh with the
Democrats own plan.
The Democrats unveiled their plan , only
hours before Ford went on television
Although both proposals were keyed on a
tax cut to combat the recession, the
Democrats unlike Ford expressed their
intention to limit it to lower and middle
income families and Speaker Carl Albert
indicated today that he questioned the
President's plan for a rebate to 1974
"I think there will be a difference and
how this difference will be resolved at this
stage I don't know as to whether we start in
197J;whether it will be one year or more or
whether we start in 1974," Albert said bh the
NBC Today show.
Republicans and Democrats also
appeared to be in a race toward passage of
the measure. '
House Republican John J. Rhodes, also
interviewed on the Today show, predicted
Agency (CIA) have been exaggerated, but a
Justice Department official confirmed the
CIA was given the names of up to 12,000
dissidents in 1970.
Schlesinger, a former CIA chief, withdrew
his statement that the CIA had committed a
small number of "misdemeanors" and
instead used the word "inappropriate" to
describe some CIA activities over the past 20
years. He said "misdemeanor" was a legal
term and it was up to lawyers to decide if the
acts were legal.
Chairman John Stennis of the Senate
Armed Services Committee held a closed
session of the panel in the afternoon to
prepare for a formal hearing Thursday and
Friday with CIA Director William E. Colby
and former director Richard Helms.
Senate Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield called for a single Senate inquiry
of the alleged CIA abuses, suggesting that
the investigation go beyond just lA
domestic activities to determine if the agency
was endangering U.S. relations with other

Albert declined to go along with Ford's
insistence on no new spending programs and
promised Congress would pass a national
health program, even over a presidential
The speaker also predicted that
organizational changes in the 94th Congress
will provide "a quicker reaction generally to
the public mood."
"We've been, run by Congresses and
particularly Rules Committees where the
power has been centered for so long that they
thought they were a brake on public opinion
and did not have the job of putting into effect
or implementing public opinion," he said.
"Things will be quicker and it will be more
responsive to the public."
Democratic refusal to seat either Wyman
or Durkin for the time being came in caucus,
but was transferred to the Senate floor when
Mansfield proposed the Durkin-Wyman
matter be returned to the Rules Committee.
As a result, neither Republican Louis C.
Wyman, the certified winner of the closest
race in Senate history, nor Democrat John
A. Durkin, whose 10-vote recount victory
was stripped from him in a ballot review,
were sworn in as senator.
Assistant Republican Leader Robert P.
Griffin urged the Senate to act on his motion
to seat the certified winner instead of one
proposed by Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield seeking to seat neither Wyman
Griffin's motion, which would also refer
the dispute to the Rules Committee for
further deliberation, came as the issue of
seating lingered before the Senate because
most lawmakers failed to answer quorum
Griffin said there is "no precedent in the
history of the Senate" for refusing to seat a
certified winner like Wyman, whose two

review that stripped Durkin of a 10-vote
recount win. '
The Rules Committee, which is already
studying the matter, might not make its
decision for two weeks.

Schlesinger's comment. Deputy Attorney
General Laurence H. Silberman disclosed
that the Justice Department handed the CI A

American radicals in 1970.
The list was composed, Silberman said, by
the Inter-Divisional .Information Unit
created by Attorney General Ramsey Clark
in 1967 to watch Vietnam war dissidents.
Speaking to a Senate Democratic caucus
immediately before the opening of the 94th
Congress, Mansfield said the Senate had a
responsibility to probe the CIA much as the

a proposal to create a Watergate-like
committee to investigate the CIA.

did not give a reason why the
