of study and having selected his habitat, the student
seeks other areas to sharpen his abilities and to comple-
ment his life at Carolina. These other areas are quite
diverse; they range from A.F.R.O.T.C. to the Yack,
from Women's Residence Council to the Beanbirds.

Student Government

One of the most impressive features of Carolina life is her student
government. Its autonomy and its predominance in student environment
make it seem to some a work of political and organizational genius and
to others a machine infernale; there are few who are not affected in some
way and at some time during their academic career by the powers in
Graham Memorial. In many ways it is a tribute to the framers of the
Student Constitution that the University's student government has
functioned so well; yet, this current success is a challenge to future
leaders to constantly improve and advance themselves and their organi-
zation to serve a student population of twenty thousand or more.

As with the United States Government, UNC student government
enjoys separation of powers into an executive, a legislative, and a judicial
branch — each with its own powers and duties. The executive consists
of the officers of the student body and six departments, under the legis-
lative branch is student legislature and its various committees, while the

judiciary is made up of the
Men's and Women's Honor
Councils. The past academic
year saw all three branches
work together and separately
for the welfare of each student
and for the student community,
the product of this work was a
significant contribution to the
University: The Fine Arts Fes-
tival, the Student "Co-opera-
tive" book sale. Residence
College Improvements, and Ju-
dicial Reform.

Executive Branch

Under the leadership of President Robert S. Powell,
the Executive Branch of 1966-67 has sought not only to
work for the student body but also to work through, and
thereby to speak for, all areas of the campus. Student Gov-
ernment leaders included Vice-President William Purdy,
Secretary Judith Fletcher, and Treasurer Donald Mc-
Phaul. They were aided by Presidential Assistants Eric Van
Loon and Bob Travis, Press Secretary Phil Kirstein, and
executive secretary Miss Stein, as well as the more than 300
students holding positions on the Student Government
committees and commissions. Working continuously for
an improved academic, cultural, and social life for students,
they combined forces with the administration and faculty
to meet the challenges of our massive university commun-
ity. The result of this effort is that the claims and concerns

of individual students are finally being translat-d into con-
crete programs of action. For the first time in years, the
bottleneck of busywork has been broken. The results for
student welfare are unprecedented:

The first illustration of increasing student activity on
campus is Residence College development. Regular classes
are now being held in Morrison for Morrison College stu-
dents, and this experiment may well revolutionize the whole
approach to learning and campus environmental planning.
Even more importantly, however, the far-reaching impact
of last fall's Reidsville Conference has combined with other
student efforts in this area to renew momentum and to cre-
ate unparalled enthusiasm for Residence College experi-
mentation among the faculty and administration.

Bob Powell, President

iwo hundred fo;

The second illustration of increased activity
is in the Judicial System. As developed as it is,
the Judicial System has far too long tolerated
frightening abuses of the individual rights of
students. This year, we have finally moved far
beyond the talking stage by carefully estab-
lishing the Student Supreme Court. This Su-
preme Court will insure the rights of all stu-
dents brought before the Student Judiciary. To
further secure these rights, a vigorous system
of defense counseling has been established
under the expert direction of the Attorney Gen-
eral. This insures everyone the maximum pro-
tection of the Student Constitution while before
an Honor Council.

A further exhibition of concrete action and
stronger student voice is clearly visible in the
field of education. The most important achieve-
ment of this administration in the field of edu-
cational reform has been to stimulate a campus-
wide desire for new and experimental kinds of
learning. In the School of Education students
will soon be structurally participating in the
curriculum-planning and policy-making of that

In another area, this administration has
drawn up a proposal for a limited pass-fail
grading system in the College of Arts and Sci-
ences. On a third front, a program is under con-
sideration now for a system of student advisors
to assist their fellow students during pre-regis-

But lofty and innovative endeavours in edu-
cation have not meant a neglect of other less
intellectual needs of the Student Body. Basic
student services have long been at the heart of
Student Government, and they offer a fourth
illustration of the success of its work this year.
By far the most successful was the Student
"Co-op," but many other services have been

Bill Purd), \ ice-President

Presidential assistant. Bob Travis, discusses plans with other student government


instituted as well (teller facilities on South cam-
pus, free local phone service, etc.).

Finally, the students demanded that this Ad-
ministration do everything possible to help stop
the increasing state-wide erosion of confidence
in, and respect for, the University. They de-
manded that every possible effort be made to
rebuild its image in North Carolina, without
sacrificing national prestige. Unprecedented
success has been realized this year in achieving
that goal.

These activities mentioned reflect only a few
of the various projects for this year; yet,
through each of its functions and projects, the
Executive has attempted to create in each stu-
dent a greater sense of individual responsibility
and a greater interest in, and loyalty to, the
University of North Carolina.

Administrative Affairs

The Department of Administrative Affairs is the divi-
sion of the Executive in charge of the Student Government
Executive offices. It is this department that makes certain
the offices run smoothly and efficiently.

The Student Government Secretariat is composed of
girls who work from two to ten hours each week to execute
the mechanical aspects of the Executive and Legislative
branches. Their duties include typing bills for the legisla-
ture and mimeographing and typing stencils for the num-
erous Student Government committees. They gain invalu-
able experience as they carry out their duties of answering
phone calls and taking messages, responding to requests
for information from other schools, and distributing sup-
plies to committee chairmen. They work closely with the
Attorney General's Staff and are called upon to perform
secretarial duties for them. Numerous leaflets distributed
to the Student Body, including the Student Government

brochure, are prepared and sent out by members of the
Secretariat. This presents an excellent opportunity for
meeting and working with campus leaders and for job

The Audit Board is composed of the director of the Stu-
dent Activities Fund and five students who are appointed
by the President of the Student Board and approved by the
Student Legislature. Their terms vary from one to two
years. The task of the Audit Board is the supervision of the
Student Activities Fund Office. They set the salaries of that
office and check its records frequently. Furthermore, they
are charged by the Legislature with making periodic reports
to this body concerning the finances of Student Govern-
ment. Thus, the Audit Board insures that the funds of the
students are protected and used in the proper places, and
is in a position to recommend improvements in the finan-
cial system.

Joining the Audit Board in overseeing student finances
is the Budget Committee, which each year submits the
Student Government budget of approximately $210,000
to the President of the Student Body for subsequent legis-
lative consideration. This budget provides the operating
funds for over forty Student Government organizations and
operations. During the greater part of the academic year
the Budget Committee aids the Treasurer of the Student
Body and the Student Activities Fund Office in managing
the funds of all committees and groups on campus which
receive funds through Student Government. In the spring, it
prepares the annual budget. The committee is also charged
with the responsibility of authorizing transfers in the
budget, which is especially important under the new requi-
sition system.

The Executive Press Secretary, though a direct member
of the President's staff, is also, in a sense, under Adminis-

trative Affairs. He keeps the newspapers, television, and
radio informed of the activities of Student Government, by
sending reports throughout the state. Public Relations on
Campus is handled by the Communications Committee,
which facilitates communication in two directions: from
the student body to its Student Government and vice versa.
In the former area, the Committee surveys student opinion
through scientifically conducted polls, and data from these
surveys is then transmitted to the appropriate student orga-
nization. To aid communication between Student Govern-
ment and the campus, the Committee arranges meetings in
residence colleges, fraternities, and sororities, where stu-
dent officials discuss issues of current importance.

With its secretarial, financial, and publicity functions,
this department is one of the most essential to Student Gov-
ernment; its work may seem mundane and unattractive,
but it is indispensable.

Cultural Affairs

CAROLl>A FORUM. STANDING — LEFT TO RIGHT: Phil Clay, Bill Tomford. SEATED — LEFT TO RIGHT: Michael Musmanno,
Robert Finch. Jeoffery MacNelly. J. Robinson West — Chairman; Margaret C. Smith. Mary King. Robert Jones.

Through the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Execu-
tive seeks to exert its influence to promote cultural im-
provement among the students at UNC. The four commit-
tees under this department are concerned with activities
ranging from international exchange to rhetoric and ora-
tory. Though concentrated in the area on extra-curricular
affairs, this new department can (and has in the past two
years) contribute substantially to a complete education for
Carolina students.

In the art of rhetoric, the Carolina Forum has performed
admirably in bringing speakers of the highest calibre to the
University. Using its power as an organ of Student Gov-
ernment, the Forum often joins with the independent Caro-
lina Political Union to invite men that either group alone
would probably not be able to sponsor. In the past, it has
sponsored visits by Franklin Roosevelt. Harry Truman.
John F. Kennedy, and Dean Rusk. This year the Forum
has seen Jacob Javits. senior senator from New York and

a vice-presidential hopeful, along with Hubert Humphrey,
George Wallace, and William Buckley.

The International Students Board is the committee of
Student Government responsible for the administration of
the exchange program to Germany. France, Colombia, and
Puerto Rico. The foreign students that come to UNC for
one year under these programs are encouraged to be active
in the ISB, and the ISB undertakes to do all it can to make
their stay here worthvhile. In addition to administering the
existing programs, the ISB is continually looking for new
areas to develop exchanges, and an exchange with Milan,
Italy may be realized in the near future.

One of the main areas of activity of the ISB for the past
four years has been trying to establish an International
Students Center on the campus. Next year Carr dormitory
will be such a center, housing twenty-nine American and
twenty-nine foreign students. It is hoped that this center
will become the focal point for many international activi-
ties on the campus.

The Cultural Affairs Department has another organiza-
tion in the area of international cultural exchange, the
Toronto Exchange.

Each year a group of thirty Canadian students from the
University of Toronto visit Carolina for a four day week-
end of varied activities — seminars, discussions, and social
events. Matched up according to interests with thirty UNC
students, the Canadians stay for the four days over Dook
weekend, which constitutes the first half of the Toronto
Exchange program.

Designed to foster improved understanding between the
two schools and countries, the program accordingly focus-
es its attention on areas of greatest mutual ignorance as
well as in areas of mutual interest. Thus, this year's pro-
gram at Carolina included a seminar on Canadian-Ameri-
can relations with speeches from the Canadian Embassy
in Washington and the office of Canadian affairs in the
State Department. Other seminars were "the Obligations
of the University", an examination of the role of the uni-
versity within our respective societies, and "The Mind of
the South; What It Means to be a Southerner."

Realizing that friendships facilitate a frank exchange of
ideas and opinions, the program had its lighter side as well.
The Torontonians and Tar Heels became better acquainted
on a hayride. weiner roast, and square dance. They also
attended the "Beat Dook" Parade and the Carolina-Duke
football game. Afterwards, they had dinner at the Quails
Roost Conference Center and concluded the evening with
Graham Memorial entertainment and a fraternity party. A
reception was held in Graham Memorial which gave stu-

dents who were not participating in the program a chance
to meet the Canadians. In addition to this, a talent show in
honor of the Canadians was held in Morrison Residence
College. The weekend ended with a bang when the Toron-
tonians romped the Carolina Exchange members in a foot-
ball game played with Canadian rules.

In the last fifteen years there has been a great expan-
sion of interest in the role of the arts in modern society.
Although there has always been a place for the arts,
particularly music, in American life, it is only recently
that they have ceased to be the property of a small
group and have become truly popular. A very large
part of the credit for this new popularity has been the
