student lobby bill
By KATHY HART and BEVERLY MILLS
A bill prohibiting North Carolina's state-supported universities from
collecting student fees to fund lobbying organizations received an
unfavorable vote of 4 to 0 by the Senate Higher Education Committee
Tuesday, killing any chance of the bill's being passed this session.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Robert V. Somers, R-Rowan, would prohibit
any organization from receiving student fees if a substantial part of its
activities includes propagandizing or otherwise attempting to influence
legislation. An organization that either tries to influence state agencies or
initiate litigation in the courts on public issues also could not collect student
Robert W. Wynne, D-Raleigh, chairperson of the Senate Higher Educaton
Committee, expected the legislation to receive an unfavorable report. "My
feeling is that this is about the extent of the lobbying bill for this session. Most
of the committee feels the Board of Governors and local administrators can
take care of the situation without legislation.
"The legislation is too broad and general." he said. "It would hurt
organizations that have been on campuses for years doing a good job."
Steve Rader, a law student at Wake Forest who is a member of an informal
coalition in favor of the bill, said the opposition, which included N.C. Public
Interest Research Group (P1RG), used phoney arguments to defeat the bill.
The legislation is designed primarily to prohibit such organizations as
PIRG from receiving student fees. PIRG lobbies on public-interest issues and
receives its funds automatically from the university, which collects them
directly from the student.
Student funding of PIRG was defeated at UNC two years ago.
"PIRG claimed the bill would affect organizations other than PIRG in a
rebuttal," Rader said. "If you read the bill and think through it, you will see
that it does not affect anybody but PIRG.
"Another phoney argument they used was that by having the PI RG funding

Indian Cultural Week dispels white fears

CGC grants Yack
increase of $2,900
By LESLIE SCISM
The Yackety Yack received a $2,900 increase in its 1977-78 budget
allocation from the Campus Governing Council (CGC) Wednesday
following an hour-long debate in which several CGC members
maintained the yearbook catered to a limited number of students.
The Yack's budget was on e of 35 voted on at the annual CGC
budget meeting. The members voted to increase the yearbook's
allocation from $4,000 to $6,900, but only after Yack editor George
Bacso persuaded the 19 members present that the 1978 publication
was "not just a white, middle class, high school yearbook." The Yack
had requested $7,675, a decrease from the $9,658 granted last year.
uWe invest $5,000 and come up with $55,000," managing editor
Jim Roberts told the council and a crowd of approximately 200
persons. "I think any businessman would agree that's pretty good."
The cuts recommended by the CGC Finance Committee came in
the Yack's salaried positions.
Other recommendations, the result of more than three weeks of
budget hearings, also were presented to the CGC for approval, but by
10 p.m. the council members had approved only the Student
Government publication budgets.
The Finance Committee recommendations totaled $142,871, but
CGC members voted to eliminate $250 from the Student Health
Advocate position and to add $500 to the Cellar Door's budget, $500
to the Alchemist's, $750 to the publication of the International
Students, and $300 to radio station WXYC.
Other amendments were expected to be introduced for budget
increases for the Association for Women Students, the Student
Consumer Action Union, the summer YM-YWCA, the Sports Club
Council and the Graduate and Professional Students Federation.
The Black Student Movement also was expected to ask for an
increase. A delegation numbering approximately 100 blacks was
present at the meeting, with members carrying posters demanding
celebrations of simple occurrences in

because they don't like Indians and
because they're afraid of Indians,"
Maynor said. "Really, it's the white
person who loses out.

misunderstanding, and Indians are
misunderstood. The white mart puts a
barrier around himself, isolates himself,
and he strikes out because of that. He
puts himself in a shell and it does him no
The Carolina Indian Circle held its
first meeting in the spring of 1975. The
purpose of the circle, Maynor said, is to
add to the education of UNC students.
"There are many Indians all around
us in North Carolina, but most white
people don't know it won't admit it,"
Maynor said. "Hopefully, we can
increase awareness in the richness and
existence of American Indian culture
right in their society."

Summer courses cut because of money
By STEVE HUETTEL
The number of course offerings for the
summer session this year has been cut to 760
from approximately 800 last year because of
financial difficulties, summer school director
Donald Tarbet said.
"It just plain costs more to offer a course
than it did a few years ago," Tarbet said. He
cited increased staff salaries and costs for
Deans, and department chairpersons
polled their students to find 'out which
courses were most popular and necessary for
their programs, Tarbet said.
"The courses that have been cut are classes
which have had consistently low
enrollment the ones that have had only two
or three students," Tarbet said.
Summer-school enrollment in 1976 fell 2.8
per cent from the 1975 session, but Tarbet
explained that the drop was due primarily to
an exceptionally high enrollment in the 1975
session. He said he expects enrollment this
year to be close to the enrollment of
approximately 12,000 last year.
The department hit hardest by decreasing
enrollment has been the School of
Education, Tarbet said. The school
previously was used by some North Carolina
teachers to fulfill the requirements of their
teaching-certificate renewals every five
years, he said.
But fewer teachers attend summer school
now because they can get the necessary
credits in workshops in their own schools.
Alsox mdst public schools do not close for
summer 'until June 10, so that teachers
cannot a'ttend the first summer-school
session which begins May 23, Tarbet said.
Some departments have experienced
increased enrollment in recent years, Tarbet
said. Business administration and economics
enrollments have increased steadily because
job opportunities are good in business and
accounting, he said.
Also, the physical education department
has a good enrollment. Tarbet said he
believes this is because students wish to get
some physical activity. "We have to keep
adding sections to the tennis classes,"-he

Speaking informally to a small group
of UNC Young Democrats, N.C,
Speaker of the House Carl Stewart, D
Gaston, said the time has come for the
General Assembly to reach decisions on
key state issues.
"Only now are members of the
legislature beginning to get a real grasp
of the budgetary decisions that have to
be made," he said.
Stewart said proposed legislation
from Gov. James B. Hunt Jr. has been
delayed because the governor has had to
concern himself with the enormous task
of appointing . officers in his new
administration and with the energy
. "What I'm saying is the General
Assembly probably shouldn't convene
on Jan. 12 in a year when a new
governor is taking office."
The Duke graduate said that most of
Hunt's proposed legislation seems likely
to receive legislative approval, but he
added, "There's going to be some
"The governor doesn't seem to want
his bills tampered with. In fact, his
position has been a bit intolerable to
some of us who believe bills can be
improved in the legislature," Stewart
Included in Hunt's package of bills is
legislation that would allow North
Carolina governors to succeed
"My guess is the gubernatorial
succession bill will pass in the House
and will be placed before the people in
the next statewide election," Stewart
said. The legislation already has
received the overwhelming approval of
the Senate "much to the chagrin of the
lieutenant governor (James C. Green)."

fighting. If they (the state's democratic
politicians) do not have Republicans to
scrap with they will scrap among
