AIAW sets new rule;
UNC opposes change
By BETSY FLAGLER
Editor's note: This is the first in a two-part series
on the cutback in women's athletic scholarships.
The value of women's athletic scholarships will
be reduced next fall, but neither the athletic
department nor the University is responsible.
With each step made in women's athletic grants
at UNC, the athletic department must answer to
the regulations set down by the Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW).
Although the department has moved ahead
according to these rules since the first scholarship
was awarded in 1974, AIAW has now changed the
rules of the game. And that means $478 instead of
$2,300 for the in-state woman athlete and $2,122
instead of $3,944 for the out-of-state woman on a
full athletic grant.
Renewal awards will not be affected by the
regulation, which will be implemented nationally
among AIAW member institutions in the 1978-79
AIAW organizes and governs local, state and
regional competition and conducts national
championships for its members, including the
women's athletic department at UNC.
UNC voted against the cutback passed at
AIAW's national convention in January, which
reduced the full grant based on athletic ability to
tuition and fees, thereby eliminating room and
board from the definition of a full scholarship for
Fearing a "super-power section of membership"
in which the richer universities are able to attract
the more talented athletes, AIAW said in an
addendum in its 1976-77 regulations that
eliminating room and board from a full athletic
scholarship would make member institutions
"AIAW is fighting a tidal wave they can't stop,"
says William Cobey, UNC athletic director.
"The majority of athletes will go to the stronger
athletic programs with the best facilities,
regardless of this legislation," he says.

Major attractions proposal
By MEREDITH CREWS
The Carolina Union Board of Directors
today will consider a proposal to establish a
major attractions committee at UNC.
The sole function of the proposed
committee would be to sponsor large-scale
entertainment and to upgrade the quality of
The Carolina Union Activities Board,
which correlates activities of all Carolina
Union committees and formulates social,
cultural .and educational programs,
presented the proposal to the Board of
Directors with an unfavorable
Carolina Union President Eric Locher,
who presides at meetings of the activities
board, said the board reported the proposal
unfavorably for technical reasons.
"It was not within our jurisdiction,"
Locher said. "Structural changes (within the
Carolina Union) are required to go before
the Board of Directors."
Lang has quiet visit
to propose revolution
It seemed to come and go.
Slogans, shouts, the Chicago convention. Bob Dylan, Joan
Baez and the Rolling Stone. And even the Beatles. Somehow,
it all seemed to fit together; the times they were a changin'.
At least for a while. Firebombs flew at ROTC buildings,
protests seemed an everyday affair and phrases like sit-in, four
dead in Ohio and Students for a Democratic Society became
part of the common vernacular.
A mood possessed students like never before. It was a youth
that questioned, a youth that refused to take excuses lying
down, a youth that wanted change. Now.
And the "system" the "establishment" bore the brunt.
"They" caught the full fury unleashed by a youth bitter against
a system it didn't like.
But things have changed. Tom Hayden wears suits these
days and runs for the U.S. Senate. Mark Rudd turned himself
in to the system he once abhorred and probably still does.
Perhaps the only remnants hang on the wall of the local Post
Office, where a few FBI "Most Wanted" posters still hang for
a couple of Weathermen still at large.
And apathy reigns supreme.
Enter Bill Lang. "In the late 1960s the mood challenged the
way society was based," he says. "It's no doubt that the mood
has changed. But it ain't the '50s. People ain't walking around
saying this country is great. They think it's messed up. The so
called apathy of today will change."
J ust what direction that change takes is what Bill Lang is all
about. The 23-year-old UNC-Greensbor o student is a cadre in
the Revolutionary Student Brigade (RSB), a group that's been
working for three and one half years toward building a
nationwide youth organization to challenge a system they

UNC students approved a $2.50 per
semester student fee increase Wednesday by
a vote of 2.073 to 1.251. Of the 17 polling
places, votes against the increase

two: the law and medical schools.
"This is a great victory for me," Student
Body President Bill Moss said as he danced
around Room 217 of the Carolina Union,
where the tabulation of the vote had just
"This makes it very clear with over 60
percent that students believe it is time to
increase our fees," Moss said.
"I'm pleased for us (the Daily Tar Heel)
and a lot of other organizations, but I'm
concerned about the usage of the monies."
DTH editor Greg Porter said about the
approval of the fee increase.
"The student lee increase was a dire
necessity, but budgetary reform is just as
necessary now. It should not be forgotten
because it is no longer politically expedient."
But the results of the vote surprised Bruce
Tindall, a law student who campagigned
extensively against the increase.
"I really don't understand why the
increase passed at all." Tindall said. "But
even with these figures, more than 17,000
students did not vote for it (the increase), so
they're being taxed by the 2,100 who did.
"The most significant result remains that
17,000 students did not vote for the

The reporting of Honor Code violations
this semester has increased substantially
over last year, according to UNC Assistant
Attorney General Reggie Gillespie.
Gillespie attributed the rise in reported
violations to increased student awareness of
the Honor Code.
"We (the attorney general's office) have
been busier this semester than we were last
spring and fall," Gillespie said. "I feel
confident that there is some relationship
between higher instances of reporting and
the Honor Code's moving to the forefront."
Dean Ben Rollins, judicial programs
officer in the Division of Student Affairs,
agreed. "The discussion about the Honor
Code has brought increased awareness
about the Honor Code and that we are, in
fact, under one."
George Lyons, also an assistant student
attorney general, said he doesn't know
exactly how many Honor Code violations
have been reported this semester because the
office compiles its figures on a yearly June
to May basis.
But Lyons said a high percentage of the
cases coming before the Honor Court this
semester were reported by students.
"I n the past, that (students reporting other
students) was almost non-existent." Lyons
"We (theCommittee on Student Conduct)
have said all along that there has to be strong
education for students and faculty for any
honor system to work," said James O.
Cansler, vice chancellor for student affairs
and chairperson of tfie Committee on
Student Conduct (COSC).
Representatives of the student affairs
office and the student attorney general's
body oted in the balloting, an unusually
high turnout for an off-year ballot.
"Why, only 19 percent voted v. hen he
(Moss) was running for president last
spring." Campus Governing Council
member Chip Cox said.
"The on-campus turnout was excellent
and highly supportive," Moss said. "I was
very surprised by the turnout and a little
worried at first. I didn't know w hat it meant.

Government will accept increased
responsibility. I hope there will be a great
