Automobiles were high on the trustees' minds when a subcommittee of the Visiting Committee held hearings here last fall. Several questions were asked student and administration leaders about the situation. Student body President Don Fowler presented the subcommittee with an off-camus parking plan, which the trustee group took into consideration. The Board of Trustees has almost ultimate powers in deciding University powers. It ruled several yearrs ago, after months- of controversial consideration, to take UNC off the quarter system, change to the semester system and initiate Saturday classes.

The meeting tomorrow will begin at 11 a.m.' in the Hall of the House of Representatives in the N. C. State Capital. defense for international security affairs. One trustee, John Umstcad of Chapel Hill, said the question of student automobiles is not likely to come up for discussion.

The students and the administration here, he said, will have until May 1 to do something about the problem. If nothing is done by May 1 about the automobile situation here, said Umstead, the trustees will take up the matter. The automobile situation was first mentioned by the Board of Trustees Visiting Committee a year ago. The Visiting Committee, sub-groups of which annually visit the campuses of the University here, N.

The Carolina Symposium on Public Affairs will have over two weeks destruction of University proper- ty," according to adormltory of-' ficial. He said during past years there has been an ever-increasing number of cigaret burns on the floors of dormitory rooms, which are the result of "careless students who don't take time to put out their cigarets before discarding them." And the lighted cigarets are thrown on the floor where a draft could easily blow them against some inflamamble material and set the dormitory on fire, he said. "Burning your floors is considered destruction of University property and is punishable through the- Men's Interdormitory Council," explained the dormitory official.

Although oigaret burns ar not. specifically written into the list of dormitory restrictions posted on the back of room doors, they still come under a property-destruction clause. The restriction list is now being revised by the IDC and will soon be posted on the backs of all dormitory doors. "All dormitory managers have been instructed to "turn anyone in to the IDC for the, destruction of University property," the official said. He said that in the future when a dormitory manager finds a new cigaret burn in a room, and it can be proven that it is a new bum, the responsible person will be turned over to the IDC.
