NTSU Receives Federal Funds

$1,466,78.'! from the federal government
for the conntruction of a library building
The grant, which comes from the De-
partment of Health, Education and Wel-
fare, will pay altout one-third of the cost
of the new building.
"We will bo unable to proceed until
we receive official approval from the
U.S. Office of Education to advertise for
bids for the construction of the first part
of the three-stage project," said Dr.
James L. Rogers, vice-president for ad-
ministrative affairs. Dr. Rogers said the
notification by Rep. Graham Purcell
implied that approval will come in the
next month or two.
THE REMAINING two-thirds of the
cost will be paid by the recent sale of
bonds. The bonds use the anticipated col-
lection of state property taxes as securi-

Star, the company that has the city

asking that the decision be overturned.
The second scheduled vote is the Re-
publican and Democratic primaries May
4, and the third one is the Nov. 5 general

The first stage of the library, which
will cost about $4.2 million, calls for a
five-level structure that will make up
half the eventual library. This section
may be completed in 1969.
THIS PART WILL hold 800,000 books
and will have 2,000 seats in four stories
and a complete l>a*ement. The present
Main Library holds 600,000 books. The
new building will be on a mall connecting
Highland Street and the Administration
Phases II and III will be added to the
sides of Phase I and will each be about
half its size. The additions will increase
the library's capacity to 1.6 million vol-
umes and 4.000 seats. The four-story
additions are expected to be started in
1972 and 1978
The building will sit on the athletic
field liehind the Administration Building,

The Speech and Drama Building will

Building will be ready this fall.
The new women's dormitory between
Avenue A and Avenue B, south of Ma-
ple Street and north of Eagle Drive, will
open for the fall semester of 19611.
The Bale of $4,760,000 worth of reve-
nue bonds financed the cost of the new
dorm. The revenue bonds pledge as se-
curity that the rent income from the
dormitory will be used to pay back the
bonds in a specified number of years.
NTSU Young Democrats passed a res-
olution Wednesday night censuring
Sheriff Wylie H. Barnes for "illegal and
unethical campaign procedures."
The resolution accuses Barnes of us-
ing county property for private pur-
poses. The YDs specifically charge that
he authorized placement of political ad-
vertisements on sheriff's department cars
and that he is using his office to distrib-
ute campaign literature.
The resolution had not been delivered
to Barnes early Thursday and Barnes
was not available for comment.
YD President Don Bankston said the
group is "in no way" trying to have the
sheriff defeated. "We are interested in
good government and we feel the misuse
of county property is l>ad government
and doesn't bring about fair campaign-
ing," he said.
• Clarification of school policy on
women wearing slacks in the library.
• An investigation on lengthening
visiting hours in the infirmary.
• A vote to drop the proposal that
dormitory directors be given more auth-
DEBATE SPRANG up over the sen-
ate condemnation of what it considered
to be UB policy. Dr. J. Harold Farmer,
UR director, said in early January that
students occupying Snack Bar booths but
not eating or drinking would be asked
to go to one of the lounges.
"I investigated, and it is not a policy
that students will be removed for social-
izing in the lTB booths," Dixon said.
"Dr. Farmer requested that those stu-
dents who must eat be allowed to sit in
a booth. It was interpreted as policy,
but it is not, The senate should not
condemn a request," he continued. "So I
Major arguments came from Secre-
tary Ellen Stricklin and Junior Senators
M trvin Smith and Elaine Yarbrough.
"Dr. Farmer should have gone through
th" Student Activities Council, not just
announce it," Miss Stricklin contended.
"I am against the idea that students
cannot use their building."
Smith said the "policy became policy
when it was in the Chat.; Farmer made
th,; decision and we must act on it. The
UB is for students."
STRESSING THE LACK of student
fa-ilities, Smith continued, "Where else
can we go? The crowded third floor? the
Howdy Lounge? the basement?"
The important thing is what the ma-
jority of students need a place to so-
cialize. Miss Yarbrough said. "They knew
that the student body was large and
had to be accommodated.
"It's their fault now," she added. "The
IV isn't what it should be."
Denton Mayor Zeke Martin spoke to
members of the NTSU Young Republi-
cans Wednesday night, but he didn't tell
them what they expected to hear.
He told them he wasn't going to speak.
Martin, a candidate for state repre'
sentative from the 60th District, dis-
covered only hours before his speech that
it was illegal.
Martin told the YRs that his lawyers
advised him of a state law that says can-
didates for political office cannot make
speeches on state property.
Martin is being supported by the
Young Republicans, a group that also
aided him in his succeesful bid for the
I'enton city council last April.
In an interview later not on state
property Martin listed three 'ssues that
he feels will be important in his campaign
for the legislature
Vietnam, higher educational facilities
and the legalization of marijuana
Martin said he will do most of his
campaigning after the Republican pri-
mary in May He is unopposed in the
Martin said that if he should be suc-
cessful in the November race, he wouldn't
resign as mayor until December.
Sophomore Senior Mickey Burnim sup-
ported Dixon's veto. "Dr. Farmer is try-
ing to make room for people who have
to eat. He is not overlooking the inter-
ests of students."
After the vote on the UB resolution,
Dixon explained the policy on library
dress. He quoted President J. C. Mat-
thews as saying that there was no known
policy against slacks. The same rules
that apply to the hours coeds may wear
slacks on campus apply to the library.
EARLIER. MISS YARBROUGH re-
ported that there would be washers and
dryers in the dorms before the semester
ends, Resident Engineer John Matt How-
ard said that he would have plans for
plumbing in two weeks. All dorms but
Marquis will have laundry facilities.
Marquis will share with TcrriM Hall.
The proposal to extend infirmary visit-
ing hours remained in committee inves-
tigation, but Senator Suzanne Baker said
that the nurses are against extending
the hours because of a personnel short-
Smith questioned what personnel had
to do with visiting hours "The infirm-
ary is a lonely place—I know," he said.
"The nurses will give a distorted view "
Further study from different sources
was suggested. Present visiting hours
are 10-11 a.m., 1:30-2:30 p.m. and 8-7
THE SENATE had already voted to
drop a proposal giving dormitory direc-
tors more authority over dorm matters
earlier in the session. Miss Yarbrough
reported that Dean of Students William
Lindley said that "dormitory directors
have enough jurisdiction over matters
which they can handle." She said Dean
Lindley told her that directors lark the
counseling and guidance experience that
the deans offer.
Miss Yarbrough pointed out that di-
rectors now use their discretion in re-
ferring to the deans, and another policy
would involve writing down a rule for
Other senate business included the in-
troduction of a new senior senator, Alice
Tyler, and a new sponsor. Dr. Das Kelley

SDS Changes Name,
Aims at Student Issues
The Students for a Democratic Society
(SDS) changed its name Wednesday
night, and President Joe Lemming said
he hopes to change the club's goals as
The students voted to change the name
to Students for Progressive Education
(SPE). "The SDS is leaning toward vio
lence, and I don't want my name associ
ated with them," Lemming told the group
of about 36.
Lemming said that he saw no reason
to continue the SDS cause, and that the
SPE would work for local goals and not
those of the former organization. "We
will be a completely apolitical group,"
Lemming said. "We will not be far left
or far right. We will continue to estab-
lish a group that can constructively crit-
icize the administration and USNT "
However, Lemming added that the or-
ganization would work with USNT, and
that he planned to ask L'SN'T to intro
duce "many bills" at the next senate
The SPE sold copies of Notes from the
Underground at the meeting. Lemming
stressed that the publication will not be
soid on campus.
