J^Ottk CUtOlMaHS have a fondness for 
tradition. In these disquieting times of change, extra 
satisfaction derives from things that do not change - 
such as the inauguration of a governor, especially one 
who follows his father to that high office. For this reason 
and because of the fair alumna by his side (Jessie Rae 
Osborne Scott), The Alumni News for the first time fea- 
tures the inauguration of a governor. Robert Scott son 
of the late Squire of Haw River, his youthful First Lady 
and their winning brood of five children already have 
provided jaded newsmen with fresh copy on doings 
in the Blount Street Mansion. 

Who is the student at the University at Greensboro - 
what does he want? One way to find out is to let him 
speak for himself. Dr. Warren Ashby invited nine stu- 
dents to engage in a dialogue "telling it like it is about 
the University, the community and themselves, ihe 
resulting exchange, much edited due to space, is car- 
ried with their approval in this issue. No conclusion 
was reached nor was one sought. The students were 
encouraged to speak out and they did. . . . Since parents 
are another source of information, questionnaires were 
mailed to nearly 100 alumnae who are mothers of stu- 
dents now enrolled at the University. Their replies, 
compiled as statistics, are included in "The Parents 
Point-of-View." ... A third aspect, "The University s 
Responsibility," is delineated by Chancellor Ferguson 
who writes: "The University is working to facilitate 

student expression whether this be through the Chan- 
cellor's Cabinet, student publications or student repre- 
sentation on University committees." But he adds that 
responsibility for the educational program remains with 
the Chancellor and the faculty with "no disposition to 
abdicate this responsibility." 

On the lighter side, Elizabeth Jerome Holder recalls 
"The Way It Was" in a far different day of regulations. 
Further along in the magazine, "Focus on Students 
presents seven students who reflect the involvement, 
the dedication, and the mobility which makes students 
today different from those of even a decade ago. 

The future of education in North Carolina is a 
crucial issue facing the 1969 General Assembly. The 
needs of higher education are presented ma budget 
projection for the Consolidated University and included 
as an insert in this issue. The needs of public school 
education, as urgent as those of higher education, form 
the platform of the well-organized United Forces for 
Education, headed by Alumna Frances Monds who is 
profiled in these pages. 

Once the Winter Issue goes to press, spring and 
summer cannot be far behind, so herewith is a report 
on summer activities: digging in Israel with Dr. Lenoir 
Wright- digging in Winchester with Catharine Brewer 
and, closer home, the Parkway Playhouse at Bumsville

The Alumni News: Winter 1969 


Early on the afternoon of Friday, January 3, Robert W. Scott became the 
62nd elected Governor of the State of North Carolina. The historic ceremony 
in Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium marked the first time m 134 years that 
the son of a governor became the State's chief executive. 

Richard Dobbs Spaight, Jr., became governor in 1835, 40 years after his 
father had left office. It took Robert Scott less than half that time. It was 
20 years ago on January 9, 1949, that Kerr Scott held one hand on a Bible 
and the other high in the air as he repeated the oath in the same auditorium. 
Bob Scott then a 19-year-old college student, watched proudly from the 
audience. On January 3, 1969, Robert Scott repeated the solemn oath after 
Supreme Court Chief Justice R. Hunt Parker. His son, Kerr II, 10 years old, 
watched proudly from the first row with his four sisters beside him. 

At the Faculty Club before the ceremony the Governor's aunt and uncle, 
Hazeleene Tate Scott '23c, left, and Ralph Scott, talk with another aunt, 
Josephine Scott Hudson, famous in her own right as the alumna who rang 
the bell" on campus to warn of a disastrous fire in 1904. 

Ora Lee Scott Walker '54 (Gastonia), the gov 
ernor's cousin, shown here with her mother, France 
Somers Scott '23x (Burlington), his aunt, was in th 
figure at Kerr Scott's inaugural ball. 



"Miss Mary" (Mary White Scott, class of 1920), widow of the late Governor 
Kerr Scott and mother of the new Governor, pauses over roast beef and baked 
chicken during a luncheon at North Carolina State University Faculty Club 
following the ceremony. Aides described Governor Scott as "cool as a 
cucumber" the day before the inauguration. The tight schedule of activity ran 
flawlessly and remarkably on time, beginning with a ball Thursday night and 
ending with a reception Friday evening. 


The new Governor and his wife, 
Jessie Rae Osborne Scott '51, beam in 
the face of clicking shutters and blind- 
ing flashbulbs as they ride in state to 
the parade reviewing stand on Fayette- 
ville Street. 

Kerr Scott, 10, who proved his mettle 
at the inaugural ball when, as honorary 
chief marshall, he walked alone the 
length of the Raleigh Coliseum, stands 
with his sisters, Mary and Margaret, 12- 
year-old twins, Susan, 11, and Janet, go- 

Among the dignitaries in Raleigh 
Memorial Auditorium were, left to right, 
Leia Wade Phillips '20, Guilford Repre- 
sentative Charles W. Phillips, Mary Mc- 
Lean McFadyen '29 and Hoke Represen- 
tative Neill W. McFadyen. "Mr. Charlie" 
was Public Relations Director for the 
University at Greensboro until his "re- 
tirement" and entry into politics. 


Governor and Mrs. Robert Scott had reason 
to be proud of their five children, all of whom 
attended the, inaugural gala and sat with decorum 
on the platform with the Cabinet of State. 

Betsy Jenkins Lee Griffin '44c will miss the legis- 
lative activity this session since her husband, C. Frank 
Griffin, who served the two previous terms in the 
Senate, did not run due to a rotation system in his 
district (the 24th senatorial). 

Faye West Warren '41 remembers her first 
inaugural ball when Kerr Scott was inaugurated 
and her husband. Senator Stewart B. Warren, 
right, had just been elected to office. Their 
daughter, Betsy, who may be a UNC-G fresh- 
man next year, was in the figure. 

Senator Geraldine Rasmussen Nielson '64 (ME '66) 
senator from the 22nd district, poses near the bandstand 
with her husband, Eldon D. Nielson. A resident of Wm- 
ston-Salem, she is one of three women in the 1969 Gen- 
eral Assembly (two in the Senate). 

Other alumnae who are wives of legislators but are 
not included in this section are: Jessie Sapp Edwards '51, 
wife of Sen. Elton Edwards, Greensboro; Mildred Scott 
Griffin '20c (Sen. Edward F. Griffin, Louisburg); Ins Rawles 
Patterson '35x (Sen. Frank N. Patterson, Jr., Albemarej; 
Carol Street McMillan '46, wife of Rep. A. A. McMillan, 
Raleigh; Anne Miller Twiggs '58x (Rep. Howard Twiggs, 
Raleigh); Etta Howard Love '60x (Rep. Jimmy L. Love, 
Sanford); Mary Wallace McMichael '60 MEd (Rep. Jule 
McMichael, Reidsville); Frances Davis Mills '50 (Rep. Fred 
M. Mills, Wadesboro); Jincy Owen Messer '34 (Rep. 
Ernest B. Messer, Canton). 

Charlesanna Walker Leatherman '48 attended every event 
on the inaugural calendar since her husband, Representative 
Clarence E. Leatherman of Lincolnton, was a member of the 
Inaugural Committee. Their oldest daughter, Celia, who arrived 
Friday morning to play the flute and march in the parade, 
refused the comfortable overnight accommodations offered by 
her parents, preferring the excitement of a bus ride to and from 
Raleigh with her high school band. 

Margot Roberts, sophomore at the University and a 
sponsor for the ball, talks with her mother, Lucile Roberts 
Roberts '41, and father, Clyde Roberts of Marshall. 

Anne Beasley Curganus '46x with her husband. Senator 
Edward Curganus (Williamston), left the University at Greens- 
boro after one year, completing her degree at Eastern Carolina 
University. Their family includes Ed Jr., six, and Ray, almost a 
year old. 

One of the prettiest sponsors was Mary Norris Preyer, 
right, daughter of Congressman L. Richardson Preyer 
(Emily Harris '39). Her brother, L. Richardson Preyer, Jr., 
was her escort. (Emily and Rich were in Washington for 
the opening of the new Congress.)

dress designed with low scoop neckline, 
jeweled waist, and softly gathered skirt, smiles 
as she descends the staircase in the majestic 
Blount Street Mansion. 

Governor and Mrs. Scott welcome John A. Lang of Carthage at their first 
official reception Friday evening in the Executive Mansion. 

The Faculty Trio of the University at Greensboro who provided music for 
the reception are: David Moskovitz, violin; Arthur Hunkins, cello, and George 
Kiorpes, piano. 

Mrs. Claude T. Bowers, a frequent visitor 
at the Mansion as wife of Adjutant General 
Claude T. Bowers of the National Guard, offers 
a hand to the Mansion's youngest resident, 
Janet, demure in yellow silk organza with 
vellnw lace.

Frances Fowler Monds 

As First Lady of North Carolina PTA last year, Frances 
Fowler Monds was a member of the United Forces for 
Education, composed of 10 state organizations dedicated 
to enriching public school education. She spoke forth- 
rightly on issues facing the public schools, using knowledge 
gained firsthand through 25 years of close association with 
schools, both as teacher and parent. It was no surprise a 
year ago when she was elected to head UFE directing its 
course through the crucial period ahead when the 1969 
General Assembly will be asked to act upon a three-point, 
$200 million education program. 

"I graduated from Woman's College in 1933 and be- 
gan teaching for $70 a month. It was at a time when the 
state first took on full support of the public school sys- 
tem," she recalls. Her certificate was to teach high school 
English, but her first job was teaching fourth grade in 
Marion. "They told me I could change to high school 
after a month, but by that time I couldn't leave the 
little ones." She taught elementary school for 13 years 
in Marion and Williamston, then returned to her native 
Hertford to teach, later to marry R. S. Monds, a soybean 
and peanut dealer and a sometimes-woodcraftsman. She 
stopped teaching when they adopted twin sons: Perry, 
now a senior (psychology) at East Carolina University, 
and Price, a senior (business administration) at the Uni- 
versity at Chapel Hill. 

Frances became active in PTA and soon realized its 
possibilities as a power in education. The reaHzation was 
verified when, as president of the Perquimans PTA, she 
helped spearhead a local school ta.x study which ended 
in passage of the first school tax in the county. 

An ardent champion of PTA, Mrs. Monds is also a 
realist. "Too often they are deadly," she says of PTA 
meetings, and she works to see that lively issues keep 
them otherwise. During her recent term as state presi- 

dent, she helped launch a drive to improve school boards 
which "are the weakest point of our whole school sys- 
tem." Purpose of the drive was "to help board members 
and the public understand the purpose of the school 
board and to encourage qualified people to run for the 
office. Some people don't know that citizens can law- 
fully attend school board meetings. The PTA can tell 
them differently." 

She believes there is room for prodding at state as 
well as local level and that state support for the school 
lunch program is long overdue. To help parents realize 
the pinch that school cafeterias would be in without state 
aid, she helped plan 15 district conferences last vear on 
the subject of school food services. 

Her involvement on the state level has not made her 
forget Perquimans County. In 1965 she was director of 
the county's first Head Start program. Not content as 
director, she assisted teachers and students in making it 
an exciting learning summer. She is active in the Metho- 
dist Church in Hertford, and her keen interest in Hel^rew 
history has made her a dynamic church school teacher. 
Duplicate bridge is a top leisure activity (she's a Junior 
Master, aspires to Life Mastership). "Beaten biscuits" from 
her oven are a special treat for guests. 

In UFE's drive toward continued progress in public 
education, Frances Monds is urging at least Uvo objectives 
which have long been an interest: state support of public 
school kindergartens and a 30 per cent raise for teachers. 
"The PTA in 1920 recommended that the state look into 
the possibihty of public kindergartens, yet the last legis- 
lature was the first to consider such a program in a budget 
proposed by the State Board of Education and recom- 
mended by the State Advisory Budget Commission. I hope 
I live long enough to see teachers — and preachers — paid 
on a scale with everyone else." 

The Alumni News: Winter 1969 

The Unwersit^ and the Student 

Nine Students Speak 

Twelve of us in the university - nine students and three 
faculty - were privileged to be asked by The Alumni News 
to have a conversation about the concerns of students. This 
is a transcription of those conversations. It has been neces- 
sary, of course, to delete considerable material from eight 
hours of talk; but the order of the unstructured conversa- 
tions and the wording has been retained. The major omis- 
sion, and a serious one, results from the fact that we did 
not turn on the tape recorder until we had become ac- 
quainted with each other. In that first introductory session 
the students talked about their attitudes toward the con- 
temporary world. The subject arose later, but there was 
not the opportunity to explore it again as fully as we would 
have liked. 

While these are the words that were spoken, no printed 
report can convey the quality of our encounter - the seri- 
ousness and humor, the intensity and excitement of talk, 
nor those nuances of inflection and facial expression that 
constitute so much of genuine communication. In par- 
ticular, the report cannot reveal the contribution of those 
whose words are less often reported; for it was frequently 
those persons who by their active participation in quiet 
response elicited the ideas of others. 

The faculty made no plans in advance except to agree 
that our role should be that of asking questions and listen- 
ing to the students. The fact that they would not limit them- 
selves to that role is the most eloquent testimony to the 
excitement and equality of the conversations. The three 
faculty who, it is clear, do not always agree with the stu- 
dents or with each other, say simply; "These and the many 
other students at our university, in all their variety and 
vitality, have something to say. We had better listen to

a dialogue . , . 

Ashby: Students and faculty constitute the center of the 
University. Let us move to diat center with your experi- 
ence and views of academic life, of faculty, of courses, 
of curricula. 

Burgess: This really gets us into the whole area of stu- 
dent-faculty relations, and the v^dshes and expectations 
of students relative to faculty. 

Susan:^ Just a couple of horns ago someone said to me, 
"I can't work for a professor, I can't accomplish anything 
in a course, if I really don't think he has any respect for 
the students, if I feel he's, he's . . ." 
Randi: Too busy publishing. 

Susan: ^ Not necessarily that. I tliink she meant that she 
couldn't work for a professor if he couldn't care less about 

Karen: Couldn't care less whetlier he taught the course 
or not. 

Candy: I've had a problem widi professors who were 
too concerned with going by the departmental syllabus. 
Everything has to be done by a certain time no matter 
whether something previously discussed had really in- 
volved a lot of tlie sti^idents. We had to read this story 
by the end of this week no matter whether students want 
to do outside research or not. This alienates the students 
because when they find their own thing in a course it 
doesn't seem to matter to the professor. It's too impersonal, 
too detached. 

Ashby: Was the professor on his own keeping too close 
to the curriculum or was the department expecting this 
of him? 

Candy: I reaUy don't know. It seems to me that a really 
good professor would have to be more concerned with 
satisfying the students than with satisfying the depart- 

Biu-gess: We've mentioned a good professor. What are 
the criteria that go into making up a good professor? 

Randi: I think it depends on 
die course you're taking, what 
a good teacher is. I've had two 
professors who, I think, have 
been excellent; and diey were 
just as difi^erent as night and 
day. One conducted his course 
strictly by dn-owing out ques- 
tions to the class which they'd 
try to answer and discuss from 
different points of view. He 
rarely said anything. He lis- 
teried and wandered around the room. All of a sudden 
he'd throw in another question. And you'd diink, "Aha!" 


and you'd get off on a hghter track than you were on 
before, till at die end self-realization happened more than 
anytliiiig else. 

The other one was a lecturer who made Shakespeare 
alive for me by just reading it. In bodi cases I think the 
essential thing is teacher respect for the student as well 
as student respect for die teacher. 
Burgess: A student and professor trusting or not trusting. 

Student-Faculty Relations 
Charles: This is one of the first diings I thought of when 
we got into diis area. I feel that die faculty here is ex- 
tremely impersonal. I've never been in a college before, 
but I have had teachers on another level and people I 
really respected. They didn't have to call me "Mr. So-and- 
so" or the other person, "Miss So-and-so." And they didn't 
have to be so closed. 
Ashby: What do you mean "closed"? 

Charles: "Closed." I sense 
that the facvdty is scared to 
get near the students, extreme- 
ly scared, within the class- 
room. I haven't approached 
I the faculty outside the class- 
f room. Maybe when they are 
not up there behind the desk 
or lectern hiding, it's a differ- 
ent thing. But it's been an ex- 
tremely impersonal thing in 
the classrooiii and I don't think 
my classes are that large. If diey could open up, I diink 
the students would open up. There would be a much 
better atmosphere on diis campus. I sense this in almost 
every department. 

Burgess: An impersonality and unwillingness to com- 
municate: do you think the students close off because the 
professor seems to be closing off? 

Charles: Some of die students come into school diat way; 
and I think they've had the exact same experience iii 
high school. I haven't. 

Ashby: You tliink many come in not closed off, ready to 
engage with the professor? 
Charles: Surely. 

Karen: Many professors turn off a lot of freshmen. You 
turn them off as soon as they get here. You have a hard 
time going back and creating any of the openness that 
you began with. 

Carol: Let me defend this position of die facult)' a litde 
bit. I felt that way, too, Charles, when I was a freshman; 
I was terribly disillusioned widi my intellectual experi- 


The Alumni News: Winter 1969 

ences and shared very little with my professors. But now 
I'm a junior, I am really beginning to appreciate this. 
Not that it's impersonal so much. A professor has this idea 
in his mind. When he stands in front of his class of even - 
say 15 or 20 students - every student is absolutely differ- 
ent For tlie professor to be effective with all of them is 
very difficult. The professor must be true to himself and 
his material. It's up to the individual student to learn 
how to gain from each professor. If that means the pro- 
fessor, as Candy pointed out, is going by the syllabus day 
by day, then go by the syllabus. You've got to make 
compromises. If diere is something you are particularly 
interested in, it's the student's responsibility to dig Uiis out 
for himself or to go to the professor or to open it up in 
class and try to get a communication going. Just to go 
into class and discuss just anything that happens to come 
around . . . ff you're reahstic, that's very difficult to do. 

Karen: Well, I agree that's 
very difficult to do but no mat- 
ter how the professor may put 
his material across or what 
technique he may use, even 
though he can't suit 15 or 600 
kids, his attitude should be 
open so that they would be 
willing to go talk with hirn. 
In a lot of cases the professor's 
attitude when he walks in 
Karen turns them off. You don't want 

to go back and dig for yourseff if it's not going to do any 
good in his eyes. t' r j 

Randy: I diink this is an important pomt. Ive found 
that in the classroom you can't develop any kind of per- 
sonal relationships, but several of my professors after class 
are very willing to communicate widi students. The pro- 
fessor's attitude out of class is much different from in class 
Sue: I have to disagree with everyone inasmuch as 1 
haven't found the classroom to be impersonal. My eyes 
look right at the professor and it seems he is looking right 
at me and lecturing to me. I know he's looking at die rest 
of the class, too, but I don't think about that. Its just as 
if he and I are diere. I've taken about 27 courses, and 
there were only diree that were not stimulating. 
Randi: Amazing, that's amazing. 

Eberhart: There is a biological variabiUty and difference 
in threshold, really. When you are deafing with a heter- 
ogeneous population, you are going to find people who are 
very receptive and people who are not; and you have to 
decide in a practical sense how are you going to pitch 
your material. You are getting two different ends of the 
spectrum. Who are you going to satisfy? 

The Educational Experience 

Eberhart: One question I am very interested in: does an 
educational experience have to be pleasant always.-' Do 
you have to learn always under sympadietic and stimu- 
lating and pleasant circumstances? 

Charles: In order to stimulate my mind, it has to be 
a more or less enjoyable tiling. It becomes a challenge, 
a creative response. I would like to walk m die class- 
room every day and say, "I'm going to learn sometiimg, 
and I'm really happy about it." I would like to be at)le 
to have a ciuious mind and to tiy to satisfy it. And I d hke 
to walk out of the room with something more than tacts 


which I will forget in a few years. I'd Hke principles in- 
stead of regurgitating facts for somebody on a test. 

Sue: When I first started talking, 
^Mi^^ I was thinking there are two things 
J^^^^^^^ involved in learning; material and 
#^^^^^1^ people. Your ideal professor has to 
' m^^H^^B^deal with botii of these, so he has 
T^^BIS^^^'to be - I don't want to say "ex- 
jT ^^V^ cited," though that is preferable — 
t||K^ at least knowledgeable in his mate- 
f rial, and he also has to be con- 
cerned with the material and stu- 
dents. In the courses I have taken, 
I have found the professor concerned 
with his material. But his concern for the stiident some- 
times is not demonstrated as much as it could be. 
Ashby: Has it always been obvious to you tiiat the 
professors are concerned first with the material; though, 
second, you implied you had to look a little farther to see 
the concern for the student? 

Sue: It's not that he was concerned first with tiie material 
and second with die student but witii bodi, but it's easier 
to see diat he's interested in tire material. 
Barbara: If tiie professor is wrapped up m his inatenal 
and is ready to present it and is very, very concerned about 
die student, dien die student has to make some effort to 
get involved in tiie material, too. I diink anybody who has 
a quest for knowledge has to have an impetiis to do out- 
side research. In my case, it is practicing on your own, 
independent study, things of this nature. 

Randy: One professor might feel 
that his interest in the material and 
his interest in the student is exem- 
pUfied by his close relationship with 
the students. But the same subject 
might be taught by a professor who, 
I although he was interested in the 
students and the material, might 
feel that the best approach is a cold, 
hard approach. He wants you to 
come in, and he's going to put it to 
^^ . you; it's going to be there, you get 

it and that's it. 1 had a professor Hke tiiis and it makes 
m'e get down to work. I might hate tiie course, but I would 
learn a lot from it. So you can learn from tiie negative 
experiences as well as positive. 

Candy: I tiiink the approach of tiie professor will depend 
a lot upon the personaHty of the professor. If you can look 
at him and see the sparks come out, somehow he s gomg 
to get to you. , . i_ ^ 

Ashby: Going back to your earlier statement about 
satisfying tiie student. Candy, what does it take to satisfy 
the stiident? What does it take to tiim tiie shident on.;" 
Candy: I'm most satisfied in a course when tiiere is give 
and take, tfiat no matter what I say in class, no matter 
how far out it may be, die professor can see my point, he 
can take it in to what he is talking about. 
Burgess: Doesn't this go back to tiie tilings some ot die 
others have said, tiiat there is a sense of mutiial respect 
bet\veen teacher and student as human beings, tiiat no 
matter how far out you may be, he respects you as an- 
otiier human being and incorporates, as he can, what 
you are saying. , , 

Candy: I think tiiat all professors have to have open 
minds. It is essential because in a class there are so many 




The UNivERsrrY of North Carolina at Greensboro 

diverse attitudes and backgrounds. If a professor can see 
things only one way, he is doomed from the beginning. 

Barbara: In some courses the 
instructor has to teach the 
comse as it is. We have to 
admit that there are certain 
truths that are truths. Tliat's 
the way professors have to be, 
guiding the students down the 
right path but giving them lee- 
\,MaSlf^ ^^'^y ^° ^i^ for themselves. 

-•^^ Charles: Should a student sac- 

_ , rifice his ideals? Reevaluate 

Barbara thgn^^ ye^^ ^^^ j ^^ ^^^ ^^^^ 

want to sacrifice my ideals. I think they will keep me 
young and vital in Hfe, not just another peg or cog. This, 
I hope, is what's going to come out of the colleges today' 
I hope it's going to improve what we have in society. Yet 
I find myself being suppressed here, moving backwards, 
and I'm not going to sacrifice and move backwards. I'rn 
not going to sacrifice my ideals. 

Randi: I think you're right. Let me say, "Hear! Hear!" 
about ideals and not compromising. Someone earher men- 
tioned the syllabus. If you have a syllabus and the class 
doesn't like that syllabus, it's up to the class to go to the 
teacher and say, "Can't we work something out?" That 
has been done. 

On Curriculum Changes 
Barbara: Do most students know enough about this 
thing? Can students choose accurately enough on the 
curriculum? Syllabusses and courses are geared to help 
us in life later on — to get to graduate school, to get jobs 
and things like that. 

Randi:^ They're geared to tradition. Because that's the 
way it's been, that's the way it will be. 
Susan: There's another side to this that we're ignoring. 
If the teacher really has expertise in his field, if he's really 
concerned about making the course the best possible, he s 
going to have some kind of idea, some Icind of goal. If a 
teacher knows what he's doing, if he really has expertise 
in his field, then how can we tell him? 
Randi: Are you saying that we who are learning don't 
have the right — 

Susan: ^ I'm not saying we don't have rights. I'm saying 
we can't know. 

Karen: Even if you can't know it all, there's no reason 
for you to sit in a course like, say, English literature and 
learn everything from Beowulf to T. S. Eliot. There's no 
way in a year you can leam that. 

Susan: I talked about this 
very thing with a professor in 
the history department, and I 
respect her opinions very 
much. She said, "I am in the 
same dilemma you are. Should 
we spend more time on the 
things we really get caught up 
in or should we move on?" She 
said there are advantages to 
both, but I told her that I per- 
sonally was frustrated because 
I couldn't get it all. She said she knew that, she felt it 
herself, but that there was merit in trying to cover a whole 
period because that way you were at least exposed to 
certain things. Your education can't begin and end here. 


You can, at most, be introduced to certain things. And 
later on you can go back and read to your heart's content. 
Education should be a lifelong process. 
Randy: But maybe we're trying to crowd too much into 
one course. 

Susan: One other point that she made was, "I've got to 
give you some sense of the continuity of political philos- 
ophy, and I can't do it if we spend all our time on one 
philosopher." I see her point. We tend to ignore this. 
Randi: We aren't ignoring it at all, but we get sick to 
death - at least I get sick to death - of reading something 
just to meet the deadline. 
Sue: ^ Is that the only reason you read it? 
Randi: It's assigned in the syllabus, and I read it that 
night because if I don't meet that deadline, I'll be penal- 
ized I got a paper back today that was two weeks late. 
I did it when I had time to do it right rather than do it 
just to meet the deadline. My professor commented, "Pro- 
vocative, clear, a good paper, but, alas, awfully late. C." 

The Pass-Fail System 
Candy: One thing that's hung me up about this Univers- 
ity is the over-emphasis on grades. I think the whole thing 
would be better if we had a pass-fail system. In high 
school I was totally involved with academics. I did some 
extra-curricular participation but not much. When I came 
to coUege, it was emphasized more, and I got interested 
in things outside the classroom. Then I realized that to 
stay here and keep up with things outside the classroom, 
I have to maintain a certain average. 

Ashby: You have a new argument: you want this pass-fail 
system so you won't have to work as hard. 

Candy: No, that's not what I 
meant. If I have to take a 
course in art appreciation, it's 
because it will make me a 
1 well-rounded person. Then, 
say, I want to be involved in 
GOTS, tutoring underprivileg- 
ed children. I would have to 
spend more time in art ap- 
preciation, three time as much 
as in GUTS. As I see it, they 
.both equally will make me 
well-rounded. Not that I will have to work less, but that 
I can work as much on two different things that would 
make me a complete person. 

Do you think it is fair to limit a person while he is in 
college to a purely academic life? When you get out of 
college, you will be in society. To have concentrated com- 
pletely on academics is going to lead to the sort of apathe- 
tic, uneducated citizen that is causing all tlie problems 
right now. 

Susan: Doesn't academics teach the person how to eval- 
uate his society? Doesn't my history enable me to under- 
stand the current scene, or shouldn't it? 
Karen: Has it? 

Susan: To some degree. Wouldn't philosophy teach you 
better how to evaluate your own values and those of other 

Candy: I guess that depends upon what you are looking 
for. There are some intellectuals who aren't concerned 
with relating what they are learning to the outside. 
Ashby: The point you are really insisting upon is that 
life in the University should be related for the student to 
life outside the University, either now or in days to come. 


The Alumni News: Winter 1969 


Candy: I'm all hung up on community involvement. The 
student before he gets to college is involved in tins sort 
of thing, but he is easily isolated when he gets to campus. 
The college conmiunity is set apart, and a student has to 
make an extra effort to get across Tate Street to the other 
side of town. 

Ashby: Could you illustrate tlie ways you were involved 
in the community before you came here and how the 
University closed this off? 

Community Involvement 
Candy: In high school I was in class from 8 a.m. until 
3 p.m., then returned to the community. I did tlimgs m 
the Y, in church groups, and social things. Here you go to 
class, you go back to the dorm, and you stay right here. 
You don't go anywhere. 

Susan: Candy is riglit. Back in September our class made 
plans to have a recreation project. The whole point was to 
get us into a neighborhood five blocks from campus on 
Spring Garden Street. It is a low-income neighborhood 
with no recreational facilities. We were checking into tak- 
ing a University bus on Saturday mornings and bringing 
the kids over here for a couple of hours of recreation at the 
gym. I was surprised that so many people didn't know 
about this area. You drive down Spring Garden Street, 
turn right, and it's anodier world. The streets aren't even 
paved. The city fathers know about diis, but there's no 
pressure on them to do anything, and they haven't. 
Charles: Every student who does this sort of diing has 
a meaningful experience diough sometimes you get de- 
pressed because it takes a lot out of you. I'd like to see this 
sort of thing incorporated into die curriculum. 
Ashby: Do you think with a few exceptions the faculty, 
administration and students haven't seen this and found 
a way to incorporate it into the curriculum? 
Randi: It is a new thing, a social phenomena that is l^jp- 
pening. People are taking a humanitarian interest. The 
Universities will come around. I don't see any reason for 
waiting ten years though. Every departiiient m the Um- 
versity could conbibute sometliing to help those deprived 
people, and there's no reason in the world that it should 
not be incorporated into the ciuriculum that I can see. 
Burgess: Do you think die faculty and administiration will 
be opposed because it is a new diing, or do you diink tiiey 
will be receptive? 

Randi: I tiiink it will be received well, as least by any 
reasonable person. 

Ashby: Is this the way you feel about die proposals for 
no closing hoius in die women's dormitories, diat any rea- 
sonable person would accept diat? Let's turn to this 

subject. , , ^ , 

Eberhart: I get die message 

of student identification and 
interaction with tlie faculty at 
what I used to think of as die 
family level, extremely per- 
sonal, wann, benevolent. So, 
okay, diat is positive, that is 
what die students want. On 
die odier hand, tiiey don't 
want in loco parentis in the 
sense diat they don't want any- 
Dr. Eberhart one to tell tiiem what to do. 

It is an interesting business because you want only posi- 
tive, helpful suggestions in terms of stimulatory mtellec- 
tiial' experience, in the guiding of a person in their de- ■ 
velopment but not in telling them what to do m die per- 
sonal sense. All right, diis takes parentis and sphts it right 
down the middle. These are two edges to die same sword, 
and I wonder if diis is possible. I diink it is. , 

In Loco Parentis 

Candy: That is what you get out of the family. You want 
your family to provide an intellectual stimulus, and, after 
you reach a certain age, you don't want diem to tell you 
what to do. 

Barbara: The thing that bothers me about in loco parentis 
is diat I felt when I came to college I had broken with , 
home. I was out in the world by myself, I had to decide by j 
myself. I think you can only go so far widi tiiis business, 
like the university telling you where you can go and where 
you cannot go. i 

Burgess: Well, haven't we moved? Are you ready for the ! 
new dorm regulations? Are we ready for open housing at ■ 

Randi: This is what the new dorm business means, tiiat i 
no longer will some detached person or some institution ; 
tell you when to come in. | 

Susan: Don't you diink you are going to get some back- 
lash from some of die parents about the new closing hours? 
Randi: I am sure we will, but I tiiink the backlash will 
come from parents who are insecure with the job they did 
in rearing their own child. Any person who has to depend 
on conti-ol either by a house counselor, or by a regulation [ 
which is designed solely for control, is a pretty insecure 

person. vi j 

Ashby: But don't you know any student you like and re- 
spect who might be put into some position of real drtti- 
culty by a complete release from rules? 
Randi: No more difficulty dian dieir Uves are full of now. 
Karen: What happens when tiiey get tiieir diploma. Does 
that mean you are mature and responsible? Many of the 
social pressures you are under right here are even more 
prevalent when you get out. Getting diat diploma after 
you have been here hibernating for four years isnt gomg 
to make you any more mature or responsible. 
Barbara: The point is to have concern but not control. 
I think that is what we are rebelHng against. I don t mind 
if you are concerned about where I am or if I am sate but 
I don't want you to tell me and to be bound by your law. 
Burgess: How do you tiiink die parents are going to re- 
spond to no closing hours? How do you tiiink tiiey feel 
about this? 

Susan: Some of diem are really upset about it. 
Karen: I tiiink the turning point will be in exactly how 
it is handled. First, we are going to write letters to tiie 
parents of tiie girls interested and tiy to explain to tiieni 
exacdy what tiiis will entail, exactly where tiie responsibil- 
ity lies now diat it is no longer considered a Umversity 
responsibility. It is as much tiieir responsibility as tiieir 
daugliters. Second, you will have to rely on how tiie in- 
dividual girl is going to approach her parents. If she is 
interested in this and wants it, it is her responsibility, it 
her parents don't agree widi her and she wants it, tiien it 
is up to her. The responsibihty in that case is again being 
placed on tiie girl at tiiis University. 


The UNR'ERsrrY of Nobth Carolina at Greensbobo 


©Ashby: Does this mean that 
basically you are satisfied with 
where tlie issue stands at the 
University and that you think 
tlie administration has gone far 
enough? I am talking about 
the no closing hours for wo- 
men. Tliose over 21 are free to 
do what they want; for juniors 
and seniors under 21, it is up 
J-. . , , to the parents. This means we 

^ are not talking about freshmen 

or sophomores unless they are 21. Are you pleased with 
the way this is going or do you feel that this is a restriction 
of the rights and freedom of the students under 21. 
Karen: Naturally, I would have been pleased had the 
University decided that this would be an exercise of 
freedom for all girls. I think the administration has gone 
along the hues we wanted them to go. Yes, we wanted 
more, but they gave us a position from which we can 
bargain. We can accept what we have now and build 
upon it. 

Randi: Last year's vote on no closing hours was carried 
by a majority of the campus as it was in the legislature, 
but I think the vote was more of a neutral nature than a 
positive vote. Tliey thought, "If there are some who want 
this privilege then that is okay with me." It wasn't a real, 
determined "yes" vote. I think that is where we stand, and 
it will be where we stand until it starts working and that 
people start saying that this is a convenience and some- 
thing desirable. 

Ashby: Does this indicate an immaturity or lack of de- 
sire for responsibility on the part of students? 
Randi: I think it indicates a hesitancy, a very cautious 
approach to change. I don't knock it. I think this is the 
way we have been reared for the most part, not just in 
North Carolina, and I think that's good, that people are 
cautious and that they are not negative. 
Ashby: ^Vl^at did you expect from faculty? Do you think 
the faculty should be interested? Do you think they should 
be involved? Do you expect them to encourage the free- 
dom and responsibility of students? 

Eberhart: I just wonder if we are responsible for the social 
development of students. Admittedly, you get a number 
of good guy points for wanting to develop the whole per- 
son, but is that our business? Being on a personal level, 
we are going to talk to students who are our friends and 
make statements about what we think, but is it our job as 
a faculty to be concerned with the spiritual development 
or your social matiu-ity? At what point do we stop being 
concerned with the whole person? Can the faculty be 
neutral in that area? 

Student Responsibility 

Randi: When I think of /n loco parentis, I think in terms 

of the student's social life. It concerns values, morals, and 

behaviour. I have never thought long and hard of how 

the faculty is a part of the picture. 

Ashby: In general, there is consensus in that all of vou 

think university students should have control over their 

social life. But there is not consensus that they should 

have control over their academic life. 

Barbara: I think we ought to have some control over 

our academic life also. 

Burgess: To be specific, what kind of voices do you feel 
are legitimate for you students to have as far as academics 
are concerned? 

Randi: Any voice is legitimate when it concerns some- 
thing that directly concerns the student. It includes grades, 
curriculum, hiring and firing teachers. 
Ashby: Is it, a fair statement to say that you believe, 
as far as the students' social life is concerned, students 
should have complete responsibility; as far as the aca- 
demic life is concerned, they should share in responsi- 
bilities and decisions? 

Randi: I am going to modify your statement. I think 
it is fair to say that a student should have the same rights 
and responsibilities that any citizen in the community 
would have. That means determining his own social situ- 
ation and participating in the governing of his community. 
Eberhart: ^^ This leads to the question as to who should 
have the "say," who should have the final word in the 

Carol: The point when you 
get down to it is that it is a 
composite. It is a community, 
a democratic community. And 
the ideal would be that the 
' people who are effected, the 
people who effect, and the 
people who have the name 
"mn" the University, all to- 
gether, coming out with their 
goals to educate people. As 
Randi says, it is a growing 

process, and everyone is involved. That is the way it is, 

that is the way it should be. 

Randi: I think you are hasty in saying that is the way 

it is now, but we are getting there a lot faster than we 


Eberhart: Why was it so slow in coming? Is it because 

students didn't care before, or because circumstances 

somehow created a power gap? 

Randi: I think it hasn't happened before because the 

national scene has not been as it is now. Students 10 

years ago were never encouraged to say, "I am a person, 

too, and my opinions are important, too. I have the same 

rights as any other person my age." Now the circumstances 

are such that we are beginning to realize we do have 

rights; and it is unfair to say that because I am a student, 

I am different from the people who can stay out as late 

as they want to or have a drink in their homes if they 

want to. 

Eberhart: Why was one generation less eager to press 

this point and now tliis generation is becoming active? 

What is the basis for this? Is there some sort of historical 


Randi: We can really trace this whole movement back 

to Berkeley. I would count Berkeley the starting point 

where students were treated almost like cattle, herded 

into big enormous lectin-e halls, realizing that tliey were 

just numbers. It is happening now, almost subconsciously 

here. I fear for the day that this place grows to the extent 

that we would even approach another Berkelev. 

Ashby: Do you mean in terms of disruption, of potential 


Randi: In terms of pure physical size that leads to dis- 


The Alumni News: Winter 1969 


ruption and violence. I think that students are very aware 
of this increasingly impersonal society and are demanding 
some personality for themselves, some identity. This 
comes in saying,'"! want to be a part of curricular reform, 
I want to be a part of the commuinty." 
Eberhart: This may be true; but crowded Japan has 
become a stimulating place, conceivably because of popu- 
lation pressures. Maybe the intellectuality and activity 
we are now seeing among students is the result of pres- 
sures that weren't there among more relaxed, diffused 


Burgess: The interesting 
thing about Berkeley is that in 
spite of all the rhetoric about 
impersonalization and the 
r-l'<lli^^^H^HHi masses, the applications for 

enrollment have sky-rocketed. 
Students want to go where the 
action is. So we are talking 
on various levels. Students are 
"(| griping about the multi-uni- 

versity and what this implies. 
Dr. Burgess Qn the other hand, they want 

to be part of it because it is stimulating, it is exciting, 
it is provocative. 

Randi: Because of the complex conditions that existed 
at Berkeley, the national eye was focused on Berkeley, 
and it caught on. When you hold up a group of students 
at Berkeley, even riotous students, if you can identify 
at all with their problems and opinions and attitudes and 
with their efforts for freedom, then you are going to have 
a general reaction. They got the pubHcity, and it just grew 
to the point where you have Columbia and even UNC-G. 
It is a very appealing thing. Freedom is appealing. 
Susan: It is not all that appealing. Freedom can be 
frightening as well as appealing. I think large segments 
of students wouldn't want to be right in the middle of 
something like that. 

Karen: I would never transfer to Berkeley, but there is 
something there that hasn't been there before that has 
given them a certain enlightenment. Even those who 
aren't interested can reflect upon it which, in itself, is a 
good thing.. 

Susan: I thought we followed after Berkeley and let 
Berkeley influence us in a way we shouldn't have because 
our problems are not similiar to Berkeley's in 1963. So 
why should we take the very tack . . . 
Randi: I don't think we are. Are we taking the same 
tack as Berkeley? No. We see what they are doing . . . 
that is important. 

Susan: But there are elements there . . . 
Randi: You go to the National Student Association Con- 
gress, you have all kinds of students there. You have the 
very radical, you have the liberal, you have the moderate 
— you don't have many conservatives. Okay. I went. I was 
considered a conservative at NSA. Believe it or not. Even 
though I was among the conservative element I picked up 
certain ideas from the most radical of them. And could ad- 
just them to our own situation, I think. It may have seemed 
radical 10 years ago to suggest that students should sit on 
faculty committees and have some voice. What they are 
suggesting, some of them, is that students should sit equ- 
ally if not outnumber faculty on certain committees. Okay. 
What you do is adapt that to your own situation. It is like 
shooting for a star. 

Charles: The student has to run his life. People today ^ 

want freedom. Students want responsibility, too. That 

comes with freedom. They are two different things, but 

they are part of each other. That, is the key thing in this 


Ashby: Do you think that San Francisco indicates that 

the students can handle the responsibility? 

Charles: Let me ask you another question. Do you think 

society is able to handle things? You are taking it at the 

student level. Let's throw it up to the professors' and the 

parents' level. Are they able to handle the responsibility? 

The preceding dialogue took place shortly after President ^yaliam 
Friday had announced a "no closing hour" policy for the University 
of Nordi Carolina, to be implemented individually by each campus. 
Student Government Association President Randi Byrant, vi^ho 
participated in the dialogue, has written the follovring statement 
explaining how self-limiting hours will be introduced on the Greens- 
boro campus. 

The concept of self-limiting hours for resident women 
is not new either to the faculty and administration or to 
the student body at the University at Greensboro. There 
have been numerous administrator-student panels, open 
student legislature meetings, and reference groups, all 
designed to facilitate understanding of the concept since 
it was first introduced at SGA's Pre-School Conference in 
September, 1967. 

Since that time, the Committee on Experimental Hous- 
ing has investigated various systems of self-limiting hours 
and has formulated a policy for our University. The prin- 
ciple behind the proposed experimental policy is that of 
responsible freedom. Believing firmly that education 
should provide opportunity for the individual to assume 
responsibility for his personal and social as well as his 
academic behavior, students consistently have pursued a 
philosophy which broadens the scope of education. Though 
faced with a vetoed bill on one occasion, the student com- 
mittee expanded its efforts until finally a University policy 
was approved. 

On November 14, 1968, the Deans of Students and 
Deans of Women of the Consolidated University met with 
President Friday and adopted a policy which allows stu- 
dents 21 years and older and juniors and seniors with 
parental permission to determine their own hours. Specific 
details for implementation of the policy were designated 
the responsibility of each campus. 

The University at Greensboro plans to incorporate a 
system in the spring semester. Moore-Strong is the res- 
idence hall selected because of the number of juniors and 
seniors who live there and because it is on the perimeter of 
the campus. By majority vote of the dorm, the selection 
was confirmed. Women who do not wish to exercise this 
privilege will continue under the same regulations they 
have now; not exercising this privilege will not mean that 
they must move out of the dorm. Academically, women par- 
ticipating in this program must meet the scholastic re- 
quirements as stated by the catalogue. 

A security guard at the entrance to the dorm will per- 
mit students to enter or leave by showing their I.D. cards. 
Tlie cost of the guard ( $1,800) will be assumed only by the 
girls who are exercising this privilege. The cost per girl 
will fluctuate depending on the number of girls participat- 
ing in the program. A realistic estimate is $18, assuming 
that at least 100 girls will participate. 

We anticipate a successful experiment and look forward 
to an expanded program for the fall semester. D

The University and the Student 

The Parents* Point-of-View 

To what extent do parents expect the University to protect their 
daughters? Some alumnae mothers give their view. 

Two months ago questionnaires were mailed to 91 
alumnae, all of them mothers of girl students now liv- 
ing on campus. The list was drawn from as many classes 
as possible, from 1926 graduates to the class of 1948. 

Entitled Alumnae Parental Opinion, the question- 
naire included a dozen questions, chiefly concerned with 
social regulations but also touching on curriculum and the 
administration. It carried the following introduction: "Re- 
membering — even though vaguely perhaps — the 'riding 
permission which was sent to your parents to sign and/or 
the system of permissions which was in effect when you 
were a student and realizing that time makes a differ- 
ence. . . ." 

The questions were neither quickly nor easily answer- 
ed. Less than half (42 out of 91) replied, 12 of these 
anonymously. Those who did respond gave full, thoughtful 
answers which, although varied, acknowledged that times 
indeed have changed and that each mother was adapting 
as best she could to the overwhelming change. The ques- 
tions and replies, roughly categorized, follow on these 

What was your initial (or general) reaction to the 
"Parental ApprovaT form which ijoii tvere requested to 
sign this year for your daughter? 

Eighteen felt it was too liberal, many of them making 
the same comment that "times are a'changing." Nine ex- 
pressed shock, usually writing the single word with an 
exclamation point. Twelve found it satisfactory ("Surprise 
. . . but no dismay. I am willing to live in 1968 and allow 
my daughter to.") 

What was your specific reaction to Question 4: Do you 
give your daughter permission to determine the destination 
of all overnight absences at her discreation? 

Twenty-one felt it offered too great a temptation, es- 
pecially those who were parents of freshmen. Seventeen 
considered it an excellent way to deal with a varied student 
body, and several called it "realistic ... a clear recognition 
of the fact that the college, no more than her parents, could 
police my daughter if she didn't want to be policed." 

Were you surprised (and if so, why) by the exceptions 
which were listed for you to check if your answer to the 
question was not an unqualified "Yes"? 

a. except for mixed house parties? . 

b. except in residences with men? 

c. except at a hotel or motel with girls 
or alone? 

d. except at a hotel or motel with a man? 

Thirty-one were surprised, many indignant in their dis- 
may. Several objected specifically to the reference to stay- 
ing "in residences with men" and "at a hotel or a motel 
with a man." (One asked, "Who makes out this permis- 
sion form anyway?") Ten said they were not surprised for 
"there can be no exceptions to a question worded as the 
permission for overnight absences was." There were many 
complaints about the ambiguity of this question. One 
acknowledged, "I would not expect my daughter to ask 
for such permission, even if she intended doing such 

Todays college students continuously maintain (and 
demand acceptance of the fact) that they are old enough 
and mature enough to make their own decisions about 
their comings-and- goings and their conduct. Do you think 
that they are more disciplined to assume responsibility for 
these decisions than was your college generation? 

Ten mothers believed they are more disciplined to ac- 
cept responsibility, "far more mature and knowledgeable 
than we were." The majority (25) did not think students 
today are disciplined for such responsibility, and five, 
acknowledging that students are better informed, indicated 
"perhaps" they were more disciplined. 

Do you think they can honestly manage capably the 
permissiveness which they expect and constantly seek? 

Fifteen thought some could manage the "permissive- 
ness which they constantly seek," while 15 replied, "No, 
thev cannot." Six believed they probably could after the 
freshman year, and four insisted the students really don't 
expect or want such freedom. 

The Alxjmni News: Winter 1969 


Today's students are constantly striving to rid them- 
selves of regulations which require signing out, stating 
"destinations." Do yon think that siich regulations should be 

Only one replied yes, that rules should be discarded. 
The majority (32) answered "No," while seven thought 
their destination should be known in case of emergency 
("All the members of our family tell the others where we 
will be when we leave home. It is practical.") 

Having given your "Parental Approval" (or disapproval) 
for your daughters permissions, what now do you consider 
the University's responsibility to your daughter and to you, 
her parent? 

There was considerable overlapping in replies to this 
question. Some felt the University should provide guidance 
and advice (8); development of character (5); or just 
"stand behind" their daughter (2). Others expected the 
University "to carry out our wishes" (4); to enforce rules 
and the honor system ( 7 ) ; to provide a good education ( 4 ) . 
The majority ( 14) expected the University to know where 
students are and to provide for their safety (7). Only two 
felt the University was not responsible in any way. 

Todays students maintain that the University should 
not assume an "in loco parentis" position about them. What 
do you think about this? 

Twenty-five want the University to maintain the "in 
loco parentis" position, while three pointed out that stu- 
dents really want discipline. Eight felt it was unnecessary 
for the University to assume the "in loco parentis" position. 

In areas other than those having to do with "conduct"^^ 
and "permissions" college students demand "their rights" 
too. What do you think these "rights" should be in decision- 
making about the University's curriculum? 

Twenty-six thought students should suggest but have 
no final word in decisions while ten believed the admini- 
stration should decide vdth its obvious advantage of ex- 
perience in such matters. Three felt students should have 
more voice, and two felt all curriculum decisions should 
be discussed and explained to the students. 

What do you think these "rights" should be in decision- 
making about the University's general administrative 

Nineteen thought the administration alone should de- 
cide, and 19 believed that suggestions were in order with- 
out involving a decision. Only one felt students should have 
a measure of control. 

Who do you think should "run" a college or university? 

The administration (20); the administration with sug- 
gestions from the faculty and students ( 13 ) and faculty and 
administration (6). 

As you "compare notes" with your acquaintances who 
have daughters in other universities and colleges, Iww do 
you feel about the University at Greensboro's "system" 
(permissions, personal responsibility, decision-making, etc.) 
as compared with the other institutions? 

The majority (15) feel the University does a good job 
while 12 found the "systems" too liberal ('The students 
don't really want this.") One felt the University was more 
responsible than other institutions, and anotlier objected 
to an over-emphasis on grades. □

The UNivERsnY of North Carolina at Greensboro 

The Un'wersity 

and the Student 

The Administration's 

Chancellor James S. Ferguson 

FOR a long time the social code at the University at 
Greensboro has been based on what Dean Harriet 
Elliott called "responsible freedom." Students have lived 
under rules and regulations which were adopted by their 
duly elected representatives, and these rules reflected the 
social and moral values which the campus community 
wished to espouse and promote. 

Of course, under the University Code, the Board of 
Trustees placed final responsibihty for student conduct 
and discipline in the hands of the faculty and the Chancel- 
lor, but it recognized the delegation of governing authority 
to the Student Government Association, subject to a de- 
fined grant of power. Student courts have enforced the 
regulations. The practice of self-government has been an 
important part of the educational experience of succeeding 
generations of students at Greensboro and, in the opinion 
of most observers, students have enforced rules of their 
own making more scrupulously than they would those 
imposed upon them by others. 

UNC-G still operates within this context. This is a day 
when students all across America are seeking a stronger 
voice in the decisions that affect their educational life, 
both in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. The 
experience in self-government that is now many decades 
old here is serving the University well in today's climate 
of increased student involvement. 

The "Parental Approval" forms that are secured at the 
beginning of each school year are a specific application of 
this philosophy. Recognizing a diversity of backgrounds 

and varying degrees of responsibility that different parents 
wish to place upon their daughters, the University seeks 
from the parents of each student instructions to be followed 
when that student is to sign out for absences from the 
campus. "Blanket permission," which evolved here and 
on odier campuses a number of years ago, allows the stu- 
dent to determine at her own discretion the destination for 
ail overnight absences. But the student does name the 
destination, and she accepts the responsibility for providing 
accurate and reliable information as to how she can be 
contacted in case of emergency. Some parents wish to limit 
such permission, and they are given the opportunity to 
name specific exceptions to the general permission granted 
Both the student and the University accept a responsibility 
for adhering to these instructions. 

Of course, it is possible under such a system to place 
a great deal of responsibility on a given student - indeed 
the same responsibility that apphes in adult society gener- 
ally. But, as many parents have recognized, today's stu- 
dents are on the average older than those 25 years ago when 
niany entering freshmen were only 16 years of age It is 
also true that many of them, because of the influence of 
modem communications, travel, and the type of schoohng 
they have had, are farther advanced in knowledge than 
were their parents at the same age. Some are ready for full 
responsibility. On the other hand, some parents do not want 
to bestow complete adult responsibilities at one fell swoop 
Ihe system of modified parental approval allows for grad- 
ual adjustment. 

One tiling should be made clear. The normal canons 
ot society are not suspended for tlie student when she ac- 
cepts responsibihty for her own decisions. Such a system 
when fully understood, urges upon tlie student tlie develop^ 
ment of a personal morality that will sustain a life of value 
and thus stand the test of time. 

A primary interest of the University is the safety of the 
individual student and of die student body collectively. 
Sigmng in and out, designating hours when residence hall 
doors will be locked, and requiring that specific destina- 
tions be named all arise from the obligation the University 
feels to do all it can to assure safety and security. 

One further statement should be made, and this deals 
with the University's position concerning the desire of 
students to influence decisions regarding curriculum and 
general administrative policy. Students at UNC-G have 
shown an interest in "educational reform" which they have 
expressed in reasonable and orderly ways -usually tluough 
the Student Government Association. Administrators and 
faculty intend to listen to student complaints and sugges- 
tions. The University is working to facilitate student ex- 
pression whether this be through the "Chancellor's Cab- 
inet, student publications, or student representation on 
University committees. 

It should be pointed out, though, that under the Uni- 
versity Code responsibility for the educational program - 
defining degree requirements, approving courses, etc. — 
remains with the Chancellor and the faculty. There is no 
disposition on the UNC-G campus to abdicate this re- 
sponsibility. Both faculty and administration are hopeful 
that they will receive many creative and constructive ideas 
from students and that these will find expression in a 
steadily improving curriculum and in more efficient ad- 
ministration. Q 

The Alumni News: Winter 1969 


The Way It Was 

Story and Illustrations by 

Elizabeth Jerome Holder 
Head Reference Librarian 

Headlines in the Carolinian on November 19, 1968, 
proclaimed to parents, alumni, retired faculty and those 
of us still around on the University campus that "President 
Friday Gives Okay for No Closing Hours." 

This announcement probably surprised no one who 
has been concerned with students of this generation, al- 
though it is not hard to imagine that some so-called ghosts 
of the past might have upheaved mightily in their graves. 
In the very first catalogue of the institution (1892-1893) 
under the heading "Social Life," there appeared the state- 
ment "SJiopping, visiting and receiving friends is (sic) 
encouraged, but no night is passed out of the dormitories 
witliout toritten permission from parents or guardians." 
By the third year of the school's existence, the statement 
that no night must be spent out of dormitory without a 
written request from parents or guardians had been 
amended by the addition of the words "and, even then, 
permission will not be granted if, in the judgment of the 
authorities, it would be unwise to grant it." By 1904-1905, 
the part beginning "no night is passed out of the dor- 
mitories" was italicized, and this statement remained until 
1916-1917 when it was dropped in the 25th annual cata- 
logue. Very clearly the institution not only considered itself 
in loco parentis but was willing to override any real 
parental permissions if the "authorities" ruled otherwise. 
It would be interesting to know in what instances such an 
interpretation might have arisen. 

A rather haphazard and by no means exhaustive study 
of some of the changes in rules and regulations relating 
to weekends away from campus, men visitors, and riding 
in automobiles as set forth in the college handbooks and 
catalogues clearly reflect the differences in each genera- 
tion. Many of the students in the first years of the school 
already had taught before they came to Greensboro for 
additional courses or for a degree. They were older than 
today's freshman of eighteen. Dr. Mclver wrote of the 
first class, "Whatever regulations ive have made in regard 
to conduct and to study hours have been the result of a 
considtation with the students and of a practically unan- 
imous vote in their favor. The students are responsible for 
the preparation of their lessons. . . . By vote they fixed the 
hour of 10:15 for retiring at night. With this condition, 
they study when and where they like. The object is to 
throw resfjonsibility upon the students, and to make them, 
as nearly as practicable, a self-governing body. . . . 

One result of siicli discipline is seen in the fact that of 
100 or more students who went home to spend the Christ- 
mas holidays, only two decided to go before the holidays 
began. One of these was called by reason of serious sick- 
ness in her family, and the other on account of the mar- 
riage of a near relative. This is the more remarkable be- 

cause numerous letters came from parents with permissions 
or requests for their daughters to go home earlier. The 
students, however, do not consider it business-like to go 
before their work is done." 

Perhaps the majority of students today would still con- 
sider it "unbusinesslike" to leave early if given the chance, 
but it seems doubtful! The fact that regulations concerning 
cutting classes before and after holidays were long in 
existence would indicate that some, if not all, of the young 
ladies would take advantage of any opportunity to leave 

In the first years of the school, visits from gentlemen 
were restricted to holiday occasions and "to those stated 

times when the young women 
will announce that they are 'at 
home' to their friends gener- 
ally." This statement was fol- 
lowed by the warning, "no one 
must expect exceptions to the 
foregoing regulations unless a 
written request for each case 
y^comes from her parents or 
guardians, addressed to the 
President or Lady Principal." 
It was not until the 17th an- 
nual catalogue in 1908 that this 
statement was included: that 
"under proper conditions, vis- 
its from gentlemen will be 
allowed." Proper conditions 
meant written permission from home, and, as an alumna 
who was a freshman in 1909-1910 remembers, it also 
meant entertaining young men in the parlor of Spencer 
under the watchful eye of Miss Sue May Kirkland and 
in the presence of all the other young ladies fortunate 
enough to have parental permission and male acquaint- 
ances brave enough to come calling. 

By 1919, students were allowed to receive young men 
with permission from parents and from the Director of 
Dormitories on any nights except Saturday and Sunday 
and on any afternoon except Sunday. "Callers may not 
be received during the hours of college entertainments" 
said the handbook, and since attendance at college func- 
tions was required, this probably explains why Satm^day 
nights were kept free from dates. Callers could stay until 
the ten o'clock bell rang in the evening. As for Sunday 
afternoons, enforced quiet hour was observed from 2:30- 
4:30 (also called "Meditation Hour" at various times) 
when students were allowed to visit in their own dormitor- 
ies or walk in the park, but only out-of-town guests were 
allowed to call. One rule students of today might well envy 


The UNrvERsiTY of North Carolina at Greensboro 

said that "all students may go to neighboring drug stores 
until noon on Sunday." In the 1920's, students "could speak 
to young men they see downtown, but they must not 
walk with them or stop to carry on an extended conver- 
sation at any time." Permission was needed to dine in a 
restaurant, attend the theatre, go to any office or to the 
station. In 1919 permission was also needed to use the 
telephone, and permission for social conversation was not 

Curiously enough, there are no regulations concerning 
automobile driving in the 1919-1920 college handbook ex- 
cept the one sentence: "it is permissible for students to go 
driving with the host or hostess at whose house they are 
visiting, provided permission is secured before hand." By 
1925, automobile driving was an accepted fact of social 
life, and the handbooks are filled with restrictions and 
regulations. Freshmen, in 1925, could on week days, oc- 
casionally ride with friends when properly chaperoned. 

Chaperones could be family, faculty, seniors, juniors 
and friends approved by the student Counselor. To this 
statement is appended a note: "The Student Councillor 
must take into consideration scholarship, deportment, and 
frequency of this request" Exactly the same provision was 
made for sophomores and juniors, with the further state- 
ment in the case of the juniors: In consideration of the ad- 
ditional risk of Sunday driving oiving to the congested high- 
ways, juniors may drive on Sunday afternoon if properly 
chaveroned, with the approval of the Student Councillor 
and the parents'' Also with permission, juniors were al- 
lowed to ride back and forth from a "picture show" or 
entertainment, provided a direct route to and from the col- 
lege was taken. Seniors could ride at any time during the 
day during the week, but they, too, had to have permis- 
sion for hazardous Sunday driving. And ami student driv- 
ing at night coidd be suspended or expelled from the 

There are many other regulations about riding in these 
years. Students had to get permission to ride except stu- 
dents could ride with women until six p.m. without per- 
mission. Also a student could ride to or from church and 
town with friends provided she got out of the car in 
front of the dormitory and registered the name of the 
person with whom she rode if the person was not a 
woman or a member of the faculty. (Plainly members of 
the faculty were considered harmless and of pure intent. 
Students were also allowed to visit them off campus!) No 
student was allowed to drive a car unless the car belonged 
to her immediate family with the exception of seniors who 
could have cars during commencement. By the 1950's, the 
handbook merely states, "each student is responsible for 
knowing what is included in her riding permission." Else- 

where the admonition also is given that a student is ex- 
pected to know where the city limits of Greensboro begin 
and to stay within the limits when driving. 

A few other regulations which seem curious to today's 
generation might be mentioned briefly. That institution 
known as "walking period" which most students seem to 
have detested but which was rigidly enforced had a special 
set of rules. "Rooms must be thoroughly aired at walking 
period. Heat must be turned off when windows are open." 
Walking period was the subject of editorials in the student 
publications for many years, one of which is typical: 

"If we did not have the walking period, the most of 
us would feel that we could not afford to take the time 
from our work in order to walk for 45 minutes each day. 
Therefore, we should be glad that a time each day is 
provided for us to take exercises out doors." Walking 
period was not the same as gym, and it disappeared as 
a college activity sometime in the twenties. 

In 1925, a "costume committee" was appointed to rule 
on the appropriateness of costumes to be worn at public 
entertainments. A student who did not ask beforehand 
could be required to return to her room if the costume 
was not deemed proper. There are comparatively few other 
regulations concerning dress in the early years in the 
handbook. Middies and sweaters could not be worn in 
the 1920's to dinner or on Sundays, and there also appears 
the smug statement, "we do not wear bedroom slippers 
outside of the dormitories" under "college customs." The 
alumna who dated in 1910 in the dormitory parlor re- 
members that when she appeared in The Palace of Truth 
that year, she was instructed in her part of The Flirt to 
lift her skirt a fraction, but under no circumstance to show 
her ankle. There were later regulations about wearing 

men's clothing on 
campus ( must be cov-

Saturday nights, 
which was a college 
custom for some vears. 
The young ladies in 
1900 who attended a 
banquet "clothed in 
those much -discussed 
dimity dresses, and 
headed by those soft Leghorns with the greatlv-to-be-de- 
sired droop," little dreamed that their greatgranddanghters 
in 1968 would be strolling around town in ragged jeans, 
barefoot, and with their hair in curlers. And it is probably 
a GOOD Thing that they did not. D

University's Urgent Needs 
Defined for Legislators 

Crucial nature of next biennium 

discussed by President Friday 

and chancellors at regional meetings 

The Greensboro campus was 
host to state legislators and 
University trustees Monday, 
December 16, for the fifth in a 
series of six regional meetings 
initiated by University offi- 
cials. Purpose of the series was 
to give members of the General 
Assembly an early look at the 
Board of Trustees' budget re- 
quest for 1969-71, along with 
an explanation of the crucial 
nature of these needs during 
the next biennium. 

President William C. Friday opened the meeting with 
a visual and oral presentation of the total budget, noting 
that "by 1975, we anticipate nearly 32 per cent of all stu- 
dents attending college in the state will be enrolled in the 
University of North Carolina. We can meet this growth 
only if our budget requests are met." He introduced 
Chancellors James S. Ferguson (Greensboro campus), 
John T. Caldwell (Raleigh), Dean W. Colvard (Char- 
lotte), and J. Carlyle Sitterson (Chapel Hill), who in turn 
highlighted the budget needs of their respective institu- 

Chancellor Ferguson traced the growth in enrollment 
on the Greensboro campus from 3,575 students six years 
ago to 5,889 this year with a total student body of 9,054 
projected for 1975. Specific budgetary needs he cited were 
funds for expansion in the School of Education, establish- 
ment of a School of Economics and Business Administra- 
tion, more computer equipment, expansion of counseling 
service for students, acquisition of land, and purchase of 
more library holdings. 

First priority in the capital improvements budget is 

a major addition to the library which can be started in 
July, Chancellor Ferguson said, "if we can get funds ap- 
propriated by then." He also voiced a need for a new ad- 
ministration building, noting that the present building was 
constructed in 1892. 

Each chancellor stressed the need for substantial fac- 
ulty salary increases. President Friday in his opening re- 
marks said, "We are emphasizing academic salary adjust- 
ments. If we don't maintain our high level of instruction, 
we will go downhill fast." 

Chancellor Ferguson told the group, "We are putting 
top emphasis on the need for improving faculty salary 
scales, essential if we are to meet the responsibilities 

Chancellor Sitterson pointed out the gravity of the 
situation most poignantly when he noted, "For the first 
time in my lifetime the University of North Carolina has 
lost some faculty members to several other southern 
schools. This is something to think about. Several years 
ago I wouldn't have thought this was possible." 

Eighteen state legislators from eight counties and nine 
members of the University Board of Trustees attended. 
Legislators were: Senators Harry Bagnal, Hargrove 
Bowles, Elton Edwards, Fred Folger, Coolidge Murrow, 
Gertrude Nielson, William Staton; and Representatives 
Gilbert Boger, Howard Coble, Henry Frye, W. S. Harris, 
Jeter Haynes, Hamilton Horton, Jr., Howard Jemison, Jule 
McMichael, Odell Payne, Charles Phillips, John Ridenhour. 
Trustees attending included: Henry A. Foscue, Jake 
Froelich, Jr., Robert Hall, Mrs. Howard Holdemess, Bev- 
erly Moore, Mrs. L. Richardson Preyer, Henry Redding, 
B. C. Trotter, and C. M. Vanstory, Jr. 

On the follo^ving pages the University trustees budget 
request for the entire University is carried in full detail 
with a breakdov^Ti of allocations for the four campuses.

Honorary Lifetime Members 

Like North Carolinians everywhere, I have great pride in the fourfold 
University of North Carolina, which ranks among the top twenty-five 
universities in America today. With the wise and prudent use of their 
resources, the people of North Carolina, through their Legislature, have 
nurtured a great State University. 

This brief document summarizes the budget request of the University of 
North Carolina which will be considered by the 1969 General Assembly. 
At the direction of the Board of Trustees, each component unit of the 
University has assessed the needs of the State which it is designed to serve 
and our best judgment has been applied to determining how those needs 
can be met most effectively and economically. 

The budget request is based on the premise that a budget is basically 
a financial expression of the educational programs; and, as such, represents 
a unified statement of those programs. The University has indicated that 
support which it can reasonably provide on its own, and that part which 
is fairly an obligation of the State. 

The requested resources will provide for the University's rising enroll- 
ment and requirements, based upon these spiraling enrollment figures, for 
programs of instruction, physical facilities, library acquisitions, and in- 
structional personnel. Our projections were carefully and painstakingly 
developed over the past two years through hard work and research in a 
comprehensive long-range plan involving faculty members and administra- 
tive officers on the four campuses. 

With the support of the people of the State and the 1969 Legislature, 
the Board of Trustees and the University Administration accept the respon- 
sibility of maintaining and extending the distinction and the service of the 

The University strongly desires to continue its forward motion toward 
greater achievement. We solicit your understanding of and support for 
our budget requests which, we believe, are reasonable and which hold 
the key to the University's future development and to the further progress 
of the State itself. 

We welcome your interest in the facts set forth in this document and 
your help in carrying out the University's statutory functions during the 
next biennium. 

William Friday, President 

The University of North Carolina

Last summer in the two terms there were more than 
26,400 enrolled for degree credit. 




During the latest complete academic year, 1967-68, the 
University had over 46,000 enrollments in the numerous 
extension programs, including correspondence courses, adult 
education, business services, short courses, TV courses for 
credit, and the Institute of Government. 















sity gives each student the opportunity to acquire 
broad knowledge and to develop his aptitude for 
clear thinking and wise judgment. Three-fourths 
of those regularly enrolled in the University are 
undergraduates. The program of each includes a 
variety of studies in the liberal arts as well as 
closely related, basic courses in a particular field 
of learning. 

TION. Both general education and professional 
education are the concern of the University. The 
professions and the liberal arts on which they are 
founded owe their existence to the men and 
women who have mastery of them. The University 
teaches accountants, dentists, economists, engi- 
neers, farmers, housewives, lawyers, librarians, 
merchants, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, social 
workers, statisticians, scholars and teachers, and 
many others whose professional strength makes 
knowledge active and useful. 

versity is a center for the development of knowl- 


edge. In its laboratories, basic theories are tested 
and new knowledge is discovered that enriches the 
lives of people throughout North Carolina. The 
knowledge created through research makes pos- 
sible improvement in our health, development of 
our resources, and enrichment of our communities. 
Research also contributes new technology that in- 
creases the productivity of our factories, farms, 
forests and other businesses. Investigations in poly- 
mer chemistry, for example, open new possibili- 
ties in textile manufacture, and studies in molecular 
biology enable practical advances to be made in 
medical science. 

Through the creation of knowledge, the trans- 
mission of this knowledge to those who can use it 
effectively, and the teaching of professional per- 
sonnel to meet the needs of the State, the Uni- 
versity contributes greatly to the further develop- 
ment of North Carolina. Some areas in which the 
University has developed programs that are im- 
portant to the people of the State are shown on 
these pages. 
















College-Age Population, Enrollment Trends, Demands on the University of North Carolina 

North Carolina's demands for higher education are increasing steadily, and the University must 
be prepared to meet an even larger share of the demands. 

The State's college-age population (ages 18-21) is increasing. It grev/ from 289,000 in 1960 
to 360,000 in 1965. The percentage of this population attending college in North Carolina 
is also growing. The following table shows the growth picture, actual and projected.

The University enrollment is expected to reach 52,794 by 1975 as compared with the actual 
attendance of 32,944 for 1967—32.5% of the enrollment in all North Carolina colleges and 
universities. The charts below show the actual distribution of enrollment in colleges and univer- 
sities by type of institution in 1967 and the distribution of the enrollment expected for 1975.

The "A" Budget Request of the University for 1969-71 

This portion of the budget request is for continuing programs at the present level. Part of the 
need is met by income from tuition and fees, endowment income, federal grants and depart- 
mental receipts, but the State money appropriated by the General Assembly for the "A" Bud- 
get IS the determining factor in the University's ability to maintain the quality of instruction, re- 
search and service for increasing numbers of North Carolinians.

Before "We Know It," crocuses will be 
pushing their vivid blossoms through the 
still-wintry-looking soil, heralding the surety 
that spring is a-coming. As things within 
the earth begin stirring, so things in the 
Alumni Office must begin to stir in antici- 
pation of Commencement and class reun- 
ions. Once second semester builds up its 
head-of-steam. May 30 and 31 and June 1 
(1969's reunion dates) will be here before 
"we know it." 

We'll be in touch -with the members of 
classes having reunions during late winter 
and spring. For some, reunion booklets will 
be compiled; for all, lists must be up- 
dated and passed around. In the meantime, 
though, we want to itemize again the 
classes for whom we'U be planning reun- 
ions: the Vanguard (successor to the Old 
Guard), 1919, 1935, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1944, 
1947, 1959, and 1964. 

As is always the case, all alumni will 
be invited for Commencement festivities — 
whether they'll be having reunions or not. 
And as the earth and the Alumni Office be- 
gin to stir, you, too, begin stirring: reserve 
May's last weekend for a visit to the Uni- 
versity and begin making your plans for 
the trip. 

By Spring (we hopel) arrangements for two 
items of merchandise will be completed. 
For a number of months we have been 
consulting about watercolors of four campus 
scenes and about alumni chairs, both of 
which have proven to be very popular with 
alumni of other universities and colleges. 
As soon as OUR paintings and chairs are 
available for distribution, we'll let you 
know. Once our negotiating is completed, 
the items will be available continuously. 

Not a Day Passes in the life of the Alumni 
Office without our making address changes. 
This is the one part of our work which is 
continuous. We are sure that there will 
never be an end to address-changing be- 
cause alumni will always be moving. "There 
is, though, one consideration which will help 
tremendously — financially. If the person 
who moves will personally notify us of the 
new address, we will save ten cents (lOfi) 
per change. When the Post Office supplies 
the new-address information, each change 
supplied costs us ten cents (10i#). When 
one multiplies the total number of changes 
by 10^, the result means disaster to our 
postage budget.

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro 

Professor George M. Thompson 

hy Dr. Elizabeth Cowling 
Professor of Music 

The death of Professor George M. Thomp- 
son in the early hours of November 10 ended 
what began as a one-semester appointment 
for a young instructor in organ and became 
instead a major part of the career of the 
professor of music who retired ofHcially in 
1963, but continued to teach until two 
years ago. Meanwhile, through music, he 
probably touched the lives of more students 
than any other member of tlie faculty —in 
founding a College Choir that grew to 165 
voices and conducting it for 20 years in 
programs of memorable musical and visual 
impact; in playing for chapel and introduc- 
ing Civic Music Association concerts; in 
teaching music majors in organ and history 
and liberal arts students in his noted courses 
in music appreciation. The capacity audi- 
ences who heard his Christmas programs 
in Aycock Auditorium, late on the Saturday 
evening before vacation and repeated Sun- 
day afternoon, could never quite forget the 
beauty of sound and setting in programs 
he planned in every detail. 

His travels contributed here, as in all his 
other work, particularly the Christmas music 
he heard annually in New York. Easter pro- 
grams were equally impressive (in 1954 the 
Vaughan Williams Magnificat was included, 
featured this year in the Christmas concert 
dedicated to his memory). Overflow audi- 
ences attended his recitals, several in his- 
torical series on Sundays in early spring, 
and he contributed to the community as 
organist at the First Baptist and First Pres- 
byterian Churches, board member of the 
Civic Music Association, director of several 
groups for the Euterpe Club, soloist at the 
dedication of several organs, first president 
of the Greensboro Chamber Music Society, 
and dean of the Piedmont Chapter, Amer- 
ican Guild of Organists. He helped bring to 
Greensboro organists Bke Andre Marechal, 
Marilyn Mason, Joseph Bonnet and Heinz 
^yunderlich. Frequently an officer of Pi 
Kappa Lambda, music honorary society, he 
was listed in WJio's Who in America from 
1952 until retirement (a fact he never both- 
ered to mention to his friends). 

Despite being stranded for some weeks 
during his first European visit in 1914, he 
returned 26 times to Europe, studying for 
13 summers with Joseph Bonnet, organist 
at the church of St. Eustache in Paris. His 
interest in historical instruments and musi- 
cal festivals took him from Scandinavia to 
Yugoslavia. He returned often to perform- 

ances in Bayreuth, Amsterdam, Salzburg, 
and Munich and played famous old organs 
from Hamburg to Santiago de Compostella 
(Spain). Yet this teacher, whose last course 
was his favorite, Wagner, was also a recep- 
tive hstener enthusiastic over Benjamin Brit- 
ten's Curlew River. He filled his life with 
music, friendship, and travel, never burden- 
ing his friends with whatever troubles he 
may have had; wherever he went, he was 
at home in the world. 

As his only surviving relative remarked, 
his whole life was bound up with the col- 
lege, and he managed to unify the familiar 
and the remote, sharing his travels gener- 
ously through cards and letters to friends 
and former students and eagerly awaiting 
news from home. His concern for the entire 
college was evident in his active partici- 
pation at faculty meetings and vigorous con- 
tributions on various important committees 
(curriculum, advisory, chapel, concert. Arts 
Forum, academic policies). In his teaching 
he took infinite care, rejecting slipshod 
work, as dozens of organists in responsible 
posts throughout the region can testify. 
Hundreds of students look back on his les- 
sons, classes, and choir rehearsals with 
gratitude and pleasure. 

Whether in Salzburg or in Santa Fe, Mr. 
Thompson had a rare capacit>' for making 
friends. Each of his many friends felt some 
special relationship with him, and all found 
him unfailingly courteous, cheerful, and di- 
rect. He was known as one of the most hos- 
pitable of men, and each New Year's Day 
he welcomed old and new friends gener- 
ously and joyously. It is altogether typical 
that the evening before his cleath he had 
given a birthday party for a retired col- 

Once when he was asked whether he 
might not retire to Switzerland, he re- 
sponded indignantly, "What — and leave all 
my friends in Greensboro?" For George 
Thompson, Greensboro was profession, stJu- 
dents, home. Few people can have contrib- 
uted more to our institution, and it is here 
that he will be remembered most vividly 
and missed most acutely. 

Glenn Raymond Johnson 

by Dr. Lyda Gordon Shivers 
Professor of Sociology and Anthropology 

The death of a quiet and thoughtful man, 
which occurred on September 2, 1968, in 
Portland, Oregon, touched not only his be- 

loved wife and children but many who have 
studied at this institution. Glenn Raymond 
Johnson was one of the older generation of 
sociologists, a graduate student at Columbia 
University during the heyday of F. H. Gid- 
dings and Franz Boas. William F. Ogborn 
had introduced him to sociology and a last- 
ing friendship e.\isted between this first 
teacher and his first major. 

Mr. Johnson was bom October 24, 1888, 
in Silverton, Oregon, where his family were 
pioneer settlers. His boyhood provided him 
with an abiding appreciation for the beau- 
ties of nature and the grandeur of the west- 
ern mountains. He received an A.B. in 1915 
from Reed College and a M.A. from Colum- 
bia University in 1916. His further graduate 
study was interrupted during 1917-1919 by 
service in the United States Army as a 
second lieutenant in the infantry. In 1920 
he joined the faculty of Bowdoin College. 

Professor Johnson began his long associ- 
ation with the University of North Carolina 
at Greensboro (then North Carolina College 
for Women) in 1923 as professor of soci- 
ology and head of that department. Under 
his leadership the department grew, keep- 
ing pace with the development of the col- 
lege. He retired in 1954 after 31 years of 
successful teaching and administration. 

As a teacher. Professor Johnson was at 
his academic best when talking informally 
to groups of students. His interest and con- 
cern for them extended beyond the class- 
room. He was encouraging, supportive and 
very successful in helping them obtain fel- 
lowships for graduate study. His home was 
a center of activity for students as well as 
colleagues. The cordial hospitality of the 
Johnsons gave numerous sociology majors 
further reason to appreciate the gentle wit, 
scholarly interests and breadth of learning 
of their major adviser. Professor Johnson 
was remarkably well read, and undergrad- 
uates recognizing this were themselves in- 
spired by it. 

Equally generous with time and encour- 
agement when a colleague asked advice. 
Professor Johnson was always open-minded, 
never arbitrary, and always willing to allow 
them freedom to experiment and to pursue 
their intellectual interests. His primary con- 
cern was for their promotion and the rec- 
ognition of the merits of their achievements. 
They knew that he was a man of high 
standards for himself and realistic ones for 
them, a man of erudition and integrity. 

Active in his appropriate professional or- 
ganizations, Mr. Johnson was a Fellow of 
the American Sociological Association, an 
active and pioneer member of the Southern 
Sociological Society, and for many years a 
contributing editor for Social Forces. 

His selfless concern for other human be- 
ings found expression through participation 
in a variety of state and local organizations. 
Throughout his career he was interested in 
the area of race relations; he was active in 
the North Carolina Inter-racial Commission 
as well as local community groups. He was 
also active in such organizations as tlie 
Greensboro Council of Social Agencies and 
the Family Service Agency. 

The Johnson family shared an active and 
culturally rich life which was the source 
of values and interests now reflected in tlie 
lives of their children and grandchildren. 

The Alumni News: Winter 1969 







A professor and three students participated 
in archeological digs last summer. They 
share their experiences on these pages. 

Dk. Lenoir C. Wright 
Professor of History and Political Science 

Y|[ Eix Lachish, an ancient site mentioned many times 
^bi/in the Bible, is located in Israel's northern Negev, 
southwest of Jerusalem. At least seven layers of civilization 
lie buried in this enormous mound (or tell). Many times 
Lachish was sacked and burned but always rebuilt. The 
continued importance of Lachish is shown by its geograph- 
ical position. It was strategically located between the plains 
of Philistia and the mountains of Judah, also crucial for 
Egypt and her two northern rivals, Syria and Babylonia. 

The opportunity to "dig" at Lachish this past summer 
permitted me to fulfill a long ambition. I had visited many 
archaeological sites in Iraq and had heard many famous 
archaeologists lecture about their work, but I had never 
participated in a "dig." The modem scientifically oriented 
expedition has as its objective the resurrection of entire 
past civilizations. This requires painstaking care and in- 
volves photographing, measuring and controlling the dif- 
ferent strata or levels of the "dig." It was this process that 
particularly interested me. Of course, there was an added 
attraction: the Expedition would provide an opportunity 
to see "the Holy Land" and the modem state of Israel. 

Our Expedition had sixty members, about half from 
North Carolina, mostly University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill student volunteers. Our co-directors were Dr. 
Bernard Boyd of Chapel Hill and Dr. Yohanan Aharoni of 
Tel Aviv University. If any members of the group believed 
that it was going to be a "picnic," they were soon disabused 
of the idea. We worked an eight-hour day, six days a week. 
Because of the intense heat, the day started at 4:30 a.m. 
Work at the "dig" commenced at 5 and at 8:30 we had 
breakfast on the Tell generally consisting of tomatoes, 
cucumbers and cheese sandwiches. We dug until 10:30 
when we returned to our base camp at the nearby Kibbutz 
Beit Guvrin where we washed pottery and rested until 
lunch at 1:30 p.m. By 2:30 we were back at the Tell. Work 
continued until 6. After dinner at the Kibbutz most of us 
( especially those "over 30" ) were in bed by 9, dead tired. 

It was hard work but most rewarding. Tons of dirt and 
rocks had to be moved. At the same time great care had to 
be taken not to destroy or dislodge vases and other objects. 
An object has no archaeological value unless it can be 
photographed, measured and recorded in situ. 

We excavated six strata or layers, moving down from 
the Hellenistic level (220 A.D. ) to the late Bronze Age 
( 10th century B.C. ) . Our finds included great quantities 
of sherds (broken pottery) and many jugs, vases and the 
like. The most significant discovery was an Israelite sanc- 
tuary or High Place of the time of David or Solomon ( 10th 
century B.C.). This was not a temple, as our directors had 
hoped to find, but rather a rectangular room in which were 
found a horned altar, chalices, lamps and other cult vessels. 
Tliis latter find will contribute significantly to the under- 
standing of religious life in Ancient Israel. 


The Unr'ersity of North Carolina at Greensboro 


Catharine Brewer 70 

/|^N July 2, flopped on my stomach, dangling into a 
\jy three-foot deep grave of ninth century Saxon origin, 
I finally realized I was in England. With about 150 other 
students, professors and miscellaneous persons from Great 
Britain, the United States, France and Denmark, I was a 
digger at the Winchester Excavations in England. 

Partially sponsored by a financial grant from the Uni- 
versity at Chapel Hill and Duke, the four archeological 
sites at Winchester are commanded by Martin Biddle, a 
fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. One of them is Castle 
Yard, a castle begun in 1067 by William the Conqueror, 
where the most exciting find (to me), was the discovery 
of the sallyport, secret underground passages leading out- 
side the castle walls. Another, and the most beautiful site, 
is Wolvesley Palace. Situated in the present Bishop's rose 
garden, Wolvesley is a gorgeous mass of Romanesque tow- 
ers, columns, and crumbling walls overgrown with rose 
and honeysuckle. The workers here, however, had to put 
up with the Bishop's semi-vicious dogs and a massive, reek- 
ing pile of manure. 

Marion Putnam, a sophomore from Shelby, by travelling 
companion and roommate, dug at a third site, called Brook 
Street, which is the most complete excavation project in 
existence of a medieval urban development. The buildings 
here once housed laborers in the tanning, weaving and 
fulling trades, as articles found during the excavation in- 
dicate. There are also two churches at this site, St. Mary's 
and St. Pancras. Tlie sophisticated water system of the 
medieval neighborhood was most intriquing. A brook run- 
ning down the middle of the street gave the street its 
name. Small ditches lined with timbers, some of which have 
been excavated in good condition, led from the brook 
under the walls bringing fresh running water into the 
houses. The closely-packed houses crowded with people 
and the poor sanitary conditions of the time undoubtedly 
was the cause of the plague which spread over Europe 
and England in the thirteenth century. 

Margaret Sykes, a senior from Morrisville, and I were 
assigned to Cathedral Green, presided over by Birthe 
Biddle, the Danish wife of Martin Biddle. Less than 30, 
she looks about fifteen and had just submitted her doctoral 
dissertation to a Danish university (her subject-Cathedral 
Green). Birthe smoked a pipe, pinned her blonde bob of 
hair back with gaily colored clothespins, and painted her 
toenails purple. 

Basically, the excavations at Cathedral Green are un- 
earthing the foundations of the Saxon Old Minster, be- 
lieved to be the largest Saxon church ever built. The Old 
Minster dates from the seventh century with ninth and 
tenth century additions. A great deal of work was done on 
the tomb of St. Swithin, the patron saint of Winchester, 
tutor to Alfred the Great's older brothers, and a friend of 
Alfred's. When Swithin became bishop of Winchester in 
852, he constructed the first bridge and walls of defense 

for the royal Saxon city. He died in 862 and, because of his 
humility, desired to be buried outside of the church where 
"the feet of the humble would trod on him and the rain 
would fall on him." 

Legend says that when his body was transferred to a 
place of honor within the church in 971, Swithin in heaven 
was so angered that he caused it to rain for 40 days follow- 
ing the ceremony; ever since, if it rains on St. Swithin's 
Day (July 15), it will rain for 40 days thereafter. And I 
believe it. This year it poured on St. Swithin's Day and, 
accordingly, 40 days thereafter. Cheerfully we diggers 
continued working in the rain, mud and cold, from 8:30 
a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, with short tea 
breaks in the morning and afternoon and an hour off for 
lunch. Breakfast and supper were provided by the dig, but 
lunch was bought with a modest lunch allowance' (48 
cents), the only pay we received. 

Digging was set up on the "trench" system. An area 
about half the size of a football field was divided into five 
rectangular sections called trenches. A supervisor con- 
ducted the operations of each trench. Diggers supplied 
their own four-inch trowels and set to work with less knowl- 
edge than enthusiasm. Margaret worked in an area with a 
fourth century Roman floor tiled with 14,000 inch-and-a- 
half square brick tiles which she and her trenchmates 
scrubbed with toothbrushes (her knees are still sore). 

The trench where I worked was overflowing with 
graves. From an area approximately 20 by 30 feet, we ex- 
cavated over 20O ninth century Saxon burials. We named 
all of the inhabitants of tlie graves with the care of fondest 
parents (our favorite was "Dead Ernest"). When the 
queasiness about working with skeletons is overcome, the 
work becames fascinating. Sex, age, diseases of the de- 
ceased and even hints at his former occupation can be 
sleuthed from a skeleton. 

The work was rough, and we were glad for a shower 
or bath at the end of the day. Living conditions varied. 
Upon walking into headquarters at 7A St. Thomas Street, 
a former chocolate factory, Marion and I were horrified at 
the concentration camp quality of our future sleeping 
quarters. Many diggers do live there, but to our great re- 
lief we were housed in a private home in Winchester. This 
meant private rooms, hot baths, friendship with our hos- 
tess and the young family living with her, but we missed 
the camaraderie of living with the rest of the dig. After 
a month of luxury, Marion and I moved to Carfax Hotel, 
a centuries old hostel, used by a training college during the 
school term and by the dig during the summer. Carfax 
meant four baths for 60 girls, eternal cold water, one 
spastic washing machine, one un-housetrained cat and lots 
of fun. 

Do I want to go back? No, not to dig. I loved it, but 
once is enough. What I remember and cherish about my 
summer in Winchester are the people, the friends I made, 
and the experiences we shared. To see them and to see 
England again, I must go back. One night after work and 
supper, a bunch of us climbed to the top of the bell tower 
to listen to the bell-ringers practicing their changes. When 
they finished, I asked the master if I could try my hand. 
Then, for all of Winchester to hear, I rang the big bell of 
Winchester Cathedral! For me, it was like throwing a 
penny in the Trevi fountain: I know I'll return for I've 
rung the bell of Winchester Cathedral. D

Katy Gilmore, junior from 
Southern Pines, has inherited a 
capacity for involvement in many 
areas from her father, Voit Gilmore, 
well known for his service on a na- 
tional and state level. As executive 
secretary of the Student Govern- 
ment Association this year, Katy ini- 
tiated a campus visit by Greensboro 

businessmen and their wives in an effort to bring the University 

and the community closer together. 

Four years at the University at Greensboro should not 
be isolated from real life with experiences unrelated to any- 
thing before or after. It must be a realistic workshop for 
the future. Last summer I helped formulate a new fresh- 
man orientation program which takes into consideration 
the changes that have been made at the University in rec- 
ent years. For example, the Sister Class tradition has been 
eliminated in recognition of the rising male enrollment. 
Under our new system, orientation capitalizes on the 
freshman interest in involvement on many levels. This 
philosophy of "exposure" has permeated the whole realm 
of student government. Through participation in Town 
Council and other organizational meetings, by inviting 
merchants and other interested citizens to spend a day on 
our campus, by uniting the five Greensboro institutions 
into an Intercollegiate Council ... all of these activities 
exemplify a focus on the community as a realistic work- 
shop for the future. 

Sherri Wood, senior from Paris, 
France, spent her freshman year at 
the University, then accompanied 
her family to Paris when her father 
was appointed European Represen- 
tative for NASA. Since she could not 
enter a French University until her 
junior year, she took sophomore 
studies at the American CoUege in 
Paris, then enrolled as a student of sociology at the Sorbonne and 
moved into an apartment in the Latin Quarter with three other girls. 

I was the only American in premiere annee du premier 
cycle de sociologies ( first year of sociology ) . Since none of 
my friends spoke English, I was completely submerged in 
a foreign culture and language. Our apartment was always 
full of students of different nationalities with interests 
ranging from poetry and painting to politics and student 
agitation. I learned more from my friends than from my 
courses, and during the "revolution" last May and June, 
I learned more sociology than in a year I spent studying it 
in classrooms. I spent last summer working with French 
University reforms until the end of the July when the police 
occupied the last of the buildings in which we were 

I wanted to continue my education in France, but my 
parents and I agreed that it would be better to get my 
American degree before settling in Europe. As soon as I 
graduate in June, I'm going back — probably to Madrid to 
share an apartment with a Swedish girl. Right now it 
looks as though I will be traveling on a Portuguese cork 
freighter, and once I get there, I'll take any job I can find in 
order to stay.

exploration. Involvement and interaction with others have 
shown me the limitations of my way of looking at the

different from my own. Sharing of yourself and accepting

Traveling is an educational experience of a different 
nature from formal classroom studying. For me, the bene- 
fit lies in the opportunity to see the differences and similari- 
ties between the culture of my country and that of a 
foreign land. More than anything else, this helps me to 
understand the world that is rapidly coming closer to 
our doorstep. Such understanding seems to me to be the 
seed from which understanding can grow between nations.

from Denton, is active in Student

What has my involvement in campus Hfe meant to me? 
It has meant the difference between four years of note-tak- 
ing and a university education! It has provided the oppor- 
tunity to meet and work with both faculty and students; to 
come to know them not as the professor who lectures or the 
boy who sits beside me in English class, but as members of 
the university community, each working in his own way to 
make the term education more relevant to us all. 

I spent this past summer in Berkeley, California, as one 
of 20 college newspaper editors who participated in the 
Higher Education Seminar of the United States Student 
Press Association. Being thrown into a living community 
with 20 people I had never seen before in the midst of a 
very exciting educational environment proved that a lot 
of my suspicions about society were true. Hopefully, that 
experience has allowed me to return to campus with some 
fresh ideas. As Editor of Corradi, I have tried to combine 
some of these ideas with an academic interest . . . that of 
the relationship of an artist to a sometimes hostile and 
misunderstand society. How does one make a literary 
magazine, one of nationwide merit, relevant to a student 
body? What is creativity in a mechanical society? 

So, it is difficult for me to speak of extra-curricular 
activities as a means of widening one's college experience 
when I don't believe that this justifies their existence. It 
doesn't work . . . except for a few. Ideally it should, but 
the percentage of students on any college campus pro- 
ductively involved in these activities, whatever they may 
be, is small. And I can't conclude that what works for the 
few should work for the masses. 

Marie Nahikian, a senior from 
AsheviUe, writes a column in the

I collection of observations, reverent 
and irreverent, about campus life. 
She has worked in a variety of jobs

to earn enough money for Euro- 
pean travel in the summer of 1966. Her most satisfying experience 
she says has been her work for the past three years with the United 
Fund's Christmas Clearing Bureau which helps needy families in 

The American University concept does not work. 
Spending four years in an academic environment, where 
everyone (with all due respect) is expected to play the 
"scholar" role is absurd. A college education is to prepare 
one to cope with life in society, but what happens? A stu- 
dent arrives fresh from the womb of high school and is 
thrown into an unrealistic living situation, and environment 
that has litde relation to the world in which it exists (what 
does city government have to do with a college student? ) , 
and four years later out toddles an American citizen, ready 
to be a productive member of society. 

Where does the University offer a student the opportun- 
ity to make a tangible contact with society? Ideally, it is 
through extracurricular activities. For a few it works. It has 
worked for me in some ways. Working last year as feature 
editor of the Carolinian and this year as associate editor 
has given me contacts and experiences that perhaps have 
made me a little more aware of what society really is. 

Jack Pinnix, a senior from Reids- 
ville, took part in UNC-G's first 
Institute in Middle America last 
summer and was in El Salvador 
I when President Johnson arrived for 
I the Central American Summit 
Conference. Co-chairman for Young 
Citizens for Preyer on nine college 
campuses in the district, he is serv- 
ing his second year as chairman of the UNC-G delegation to State 
Student Legislature in Raleigh. 

When President Johnson met with the presidents of 
the five Central American Republics in early July, 
he was warmly received by both the heads of state and 
the man in the street. But his appearance set off a wave of 
anti-American demonstrations among San Salvador's uni- 
versity students. 

Behind their slogans, which accused Johnson of being 
the "intellectual author" of the assassinations of Martin 
Luther King and Robert Kennedy, and which condemned 
the U.S. presence in Vietnam, is the frustration caused by 
two factors: the oppression the students feel from their 
own military-dominated government; and the staggering 
national level of poverty which they believe is caused by 
their economic dependence on the United States. 

In the wake of the Johnson visit, I sought out leaders 
of the various student movements in an attempt to un- 
derstand their frustrations and goals. Although they dif- 
fered widely in their approach to the problems facing 
their country, they all perceived that the basis of the 
problems was the unequal distribution of wealth, and they 

The Alumni News: Winter 1969 


all had solutions far to the left of the programs of the 
present government. 

A Peking-oriented student, Carlos Molina, went to 
great lengths to describe the sometimes successful at- 
tempts to organize a unified leftist program. And a student 
leader of the Christian Democrats (PDC) told me it 
would be a violation of the principles of democracy to 
suppress Communist-dominated parties. But he made it 
clear that he believes the reforms induced by Christian 
Democracy would cut the ground out from under the 
Communists and thus make the issue of their free existence 
largely academic. 

In short, the forces for reform in Salvador are engaged 
in a life-or-death struggle for idealogical supremacy with- 
in the academic community, but the practical necessities 
of political survival can sometimes create a united front 
against the government. 

The struggle for some men's minds has apparently al- 
ready been won. Although Carlos Molina graciously ac- 
knowledges the accomplishments of all reform groups, 
his jargon is straight from Marxist literature. He explains 
that the demonstrations against Johnson were staged be- 
cause the President personifies the interests of such Amer- 
ican corporations as General Motors and Standard Oil. To 
him, Vietnam is a case of a small underdeveloped country 
defeating the United States. The war "shows the possibility 
for a small people to win their liberty." 

Molina's fight against his own government has more than 
an academic basis. He tells of police terrorism, threats, 
and murders committed with the complicity of the head 
of the National Guard. He remembers that three days 
before the election of the present government, the National 
Guard went through the countryside threatening a blood- 
bath if the opposition candidate was elected. After the 
election the party Molina supported, the PAR, was de- 
clared illegal. 

But Molina is pleased and encouraged by some recent 
developments. In 1966, a successful steel strike marked 
the first time in Salvador's history that "workers had gained 
something by the strike." In 1968, strikes were called by 
bakers, bus drivers, and teachers. The strike by the teach- 
er's union, ANDES (Associacion Nacional de Educacion 
Salvadorena) was particularly gratifying to Molina. 
"Teachers had been government followers instead of push- 
ers of social justice. Before the strike teachers had im- 
portance only at election time," he said. 

The principle of educators leading social reform was 
brought home by another student, Alfredo Monge Men- 
jivar. Monge Menjivar is not a member of any political 
action group, but believes it is his responsibility as a stu- 
dent to support the goals of AGEUS, the student organ- 
izations of the University, 'The Government is against the 
University because the University always upholds progress, 
change, reform, the things the government doesn't like. . . . 
The University is the only place where you can breathe 
freely, say things without inhibition, a place you can ex- 
press all of your feelings," Mone Menjivar said. 

He speaks of the schism between the University and 
the government in terms of class identification. "The gov- 
ernment thinks in terms of the upper class; the University 
in terms of the lower. Students consider themselves in a 
class apart and identify themselves with the fight for the 
people. . . . The University students offer solutions to the 
problems of the peasants and the factory laborers." 

When I first met Monge Menjivar, I questioned him 
concerning his participation in a student demonstration 
which had occurred the same morning. He explained that 
the demonstration was to protest the government's holding 
up, for two months, of the University budget. "The Uni- 
versity is falling behind because of the withholding of 
funds. If they don't get the money it will mean the Uni- 
versity will have to curtail activities. It is the govern- 
ment's policy to attempt to block University funds year 
after year in an effort to break the autonomy of the Uni- 
versity," he said, adding that University autonomy, mean- 
ing faculty-student power (usually student-dominated), 
insures the academic freedom of the University. 

Monge Menjivar also spoke of American aid, particularly 
the Alliance for Progress. He quoted Che Guevara as say- 
ing the "Alliance is a millionaire with 20 beggars." Monge 
Menjivar added that he believed the policies of the Alliance 
have made Latin countries more subordinate to the United 
States, compromising them and placing them in great debt. 

"Alliance money has been invested in things that will 
not lead to progress. Nothing to create jobs, nothing to 
create work. The country is still subordinate to the United 
States because it cannot improve. If the United States had 
been interested in real development during the last six 
years it could have helped. Instead, it has concentrated 
on building classrooms, homes, and latrines. Today there 
is more unemployment than ever." He said he doesn't want 
American charity but wants the U.S. to pay a just price 
for the products. When asked if what he was suggesting 
was greater U.S. investment, he replied "no," and then 
stated that what he really wanted was complete U.S. 
political, economic, and cultural withdrawal. 

Such goals, of course, are naive. Nevertheless, they ac- 
curately reflect the feelings and frustrations of many of 
this nation's intellectuals. But the elements of reform have 
one clear, realistic, and obtainable hope for accelerated 
progress, the Christian Democratic movement ( PDC ) . In 
El Salvador the PDC controls the majority in most of the 
important towns and in the capital city of San Salvador. 
The strongest of the parties opposing the government, the 
PDC's block of votes in the Legislative Assembly — along 
with the two smaller parties — is just one vote short of half, 
two votes short of control. Most observers believe that if 
the next election is fair, the PDC will control the govern- 

Mario Zamora Rivas, a law student and PDC leader, 
talks of Marxist losses throughout the Latin university 
campuses of this hemisphere. He is quick to point out that 
as the Communists lose ground the Christian Democrats 
gain. He notes that the student-faculty arm of the Christian 
Democrats has already gained control of the universities 
in Chile, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, FRUSC now dom- 
inates the faculty in El Salvador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru 
and Guatemala. 

Zamora, like all Christian Democrats, is completely 
anti-Marxist. He believes in rapid social reforms, but he 
also believes that the government must insure the rights 
of man, freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and all 
forms of personal liberty. Economic reforms must insure 
"the right to dignified work, remuneration, freedom to 
choose the type of work, the right to education." Should 
the PDC win the Presidency in 1972, Mario Zamora Rivas 
may well see his dream of Christian Socialism face the 
test of economic reality. □

Parkway Playhouse: 
A Joint Venture 

Gordon W. Pearlman, Department of Drama and Speech 

The Parkway Playhouse at Bums- 
ville is a unique summer stock theatre 
— unique because of its history and 
operation as well as its magnificent 
mountain setting and the overwhelm- 
ing support it receives from the com- 
munity in which it is located. It has 
survived 21 years in a community 
which many theatre specialists con- 
sider most unlikely for a theatre, yet it is this town set 
deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains which has given the 
Playhouse much of its success. 

The desire for a theatre in Bumsville at last became 
a reality in 1947 when Rush Wray approached W. Ray- 
mond Taylor, then Director of Drama at Woman's Col- 
lege, about the possibility of a summer stock company. 

Mr. Wray had served as Director of Drama at Greensboro 
College before returning to Bumsville to operate the fam- 
ily's Nu-Wray Inn. "Teach" Taylor was interested and to- 
gether they approached Chancellor W. C. Jackson with 
the proposal of a summer institute in Bumsville as part 
of a college extension program. Dr. Jackson and Charles 
W. Phillips, Public Relations Director, took the idea to 
Consolidated University President Frank Graham, and it 
was his support that obtained a $10,000 grant from the 
Carnegie Foundation to launch the summer extension 
program . . . and Parkway Playhouse. 

A high school gymnasium was converted into a theatre. 
With the cooperation of the Yancey County Board of 
Education and the W.P.A., an old schoolhouse was torn 
down and for 18 days men worked day and night (with 
the aid of floodlights) to accomplish the task of building 

The Ahjmni News: Winter 1969 


an adjoining stagehouse. Until the dormitories from the 
Yancey Collegiate Institute were given to the Playhouse 
several years later, students lived in the homes of towns- 
people. Volunteers worked in the cafeteria imder the 
direction of Mrs. Taylor, and many people contributed 
food as well as service. Looking back to those days, "Teach" 
Taylor recalls Frank Howell, Yancey County's Superin- 
tendent of Education, as one of the strongest supporters 
of the Playhouse. Mr. Howell permitted the company to 
use the schools' shop and cafeteria and cooperated in 
everyway to insure the Playhouse's initial success. 

In those first years many extension division courses 
were taught. Charles Phillips, Director of the Summer 
School Extension in Burnsville, acted as both business 
manager and teacher. Chancellor Jackson and the late 
novelist Lettie Rogers (Landscape of the Heart, Storm 
Cloud and Birthright) were among the first instructors 
along with "Teach" Taylor. There were eight to ten stu- 
dents from Woman's College and others from around 
Burnsville, many of whom were working toward teacher 
certificate renewal. The first play at the Playhouse was 
the Broadhurst comedy. Whatever Happened to Jones? 
The Playhouse produced five to six shows each summer, 
usually opening with the commencement play from Wo- 
man's College and closing with a drama to open the fall 
theatre season on campus. 

In 1954 Woman's College decided it could no longer 
operate the Playhouse. Gordon Bennett, who had worked 
with Mr. Taylor since 1948, took over the management 
with the University of Miami ( Florida ) as collegiate sup- 
ervisor. During the next 13 years under Mr. Bennett's 
direction, the Playhouse was expanded to include a shop, 
office, box office, and outdoor theatre. In 1966 Dr. Herman 
Middleton, Chairman of the Department of Drama and 
Speech on the Greensboro campus, brought the Parkway 
Playhouse "home" to the University, and it became officially 
part of the state university system. 

A $25,000 grant from the North Carolina Legislature 
paid for remodeling and refurnishing dormitories and 
apartments, for replacing the roof on the theatre and one 
dormitory, and for installing a new lighting and sound 
system. A new sewage line was laid and guest rooms were 
added for visiting press and University faculty. A barbecue 
on the Playhouse grounds for the Board of Directors, the 
Board of Education, the press, the Chancellor and Uni- 
versity personnel opened the season last July and provided 
an opportunity to view these improvements.

Parkway's summer stock operation attracts students and 
staff from all over the East Coast. Gordon W. Pearlman, 
Scenic Designer for the University Theatre, is Managing 
Director with Lauren K. Woods from Monmouth College 
in New Jersey. Frank Silberstein from the University of 
Virginia is Technical Director, and guest directors last 
summer came from Mars Hill College, Gardner- Webb Col- 
lege, the University of Miami and the Greensboro Little 
Theatre. Forty students came from 10 states and 16 col- 
leges. For seven weeks in July and August the Playhouse 
presented four plays and two musicals. Besides working 
on every aspect of the shows, the students received up to 
seven hours of accredited course work. Morning classes 
ranged from an introduction to the theatre, acting and 
make-up to workshops in production. Rehearsals and crew 
assignments occupied the afternoon and evenings with 
performances four nights a week. 

Today, as in 1947, the citizens of Burnsville provide 
dynamic support for the Playhouse. Part of the reason no 
doubt is the stream of summer visitors who linger longer, 
at least partly persuaded by a summer stock company in 
the area. The town of Burnsville at the foot of Mount 
Mitchell, highest peak east of the Mississippi, is an isolated 
community, enveloped for years in the mountain culture 
of farming, log schoolhouses, homemade tools and clothes 
and dulcimer music. When good roads brought lowlanders 
seeking the cool mountain air, new modes of living were 
introduced, but many rural traditions were retained. Farm- 
ers still work their land by hand, guiding mule-drawn 
plows over the earth, children still swim in the creek, 
parents still buy goods in the country store, and young 
and old alike dos-a-dos at square dances. However, col- 
leges and higher paying jobs continue to draw the youth 
away. Although the population for the state more than 
doubled during the Fifties, the population for Burnsville 
remained almost the same. The 1950 census shows a pop- 
ulation of 1,368,101 in North Carolina and 1,341 in Burns- 
ville. The 1960 census shows 4,556,155, a 133 per cent in- 
crease in North Carolina, while Burnsville's population in- 
creased by only 47 or three and one-half per cent. 

Such facts make Burnsville residents realize that the 
Playhouse is important in keeping their community alive 
and partially accounts for the fact that just about everyone 
in Burnsville does something for the Playhouse. This past 
summer donations included a piano, costumes, properties, 
furniture and enough material from the local mill for new 
curtains, made by local women, for dormitory rooms and 


The University of North Carolina at Greensboro 

apartments. Even the children participate. Last summer 
they were enthusiastic members of the cast of The Music 

The Yancey County Board of Education, which owns 
all of the buildings the theatre uses, including the theatre 
itself and the dormitories, also lends the public school 
auditorium for extra rehearsal space and the cafeteria in 
the elementary school for meals. The school piano, the 
mimeograph machine, and a truck all are available for 
Playhouse use. The Board of Directors, comprised of local 
businessmen and residents, represents the city in deciding 
policies in Playhouse operation, holding themselves re- 
sponsible for any deficiency. A committee from the Board 
supervises inprovements during the winter months, and 
has the theatre complex in order before the company ar- 
rives in June. The board also sells advertising for the pro- 
gram and season tickets. One-half of the Parkway patrons 
are local residents, most of them season-ticket holders. The 
grand total of Bumsvillians who attended the six shows is 
more than the entire population, an indication of the ex- 
tent to which the town supports its theatre. 

With the University and the people of Burnsville work- 
ing tandem, the success of the joint venture that is Park- 
way Playhouse should be issured.

Katherine McLean Jordan '20 

Sen. B. Everette Jordan— Saxapahaw 

The Jordans spent Christmas, as always, at their home 
in Saxapahaw where two sons, Ben E. Jr., and John Mc- 
Lean, hve and a daughter near by (Mrs. Roger Gant, 
Burhngton). Although disappointed to miss the Raleigh 
inauguration (the Governor's mother is the senator's first 
cousin), Mrs. Jordan was looking forward to the whirl of 
life in Washington where she lives during senate sessions. 
She may have anticipated the presidential inauguration 
with some relief since her husband did not direct the cere- 
mony as he did four years ago (many called it the best run 
inauguration in history ) . As head of the Senate Rules Com- 
mittee, it was again his responsibility, but with the election 
of a Republican president, he resigned in behalf of Sen. 
Everett Dirksen. 

Annie Elliott Lee Jonas 

Rep. Charles R. Jonas— Lincolnton 

Annie Elliott didn't worry about congressional service 
this year since, as she wrote, "the past 16 years have taken 
their toll," referring to her inability to keep things organ- 
ized as she did in pre-Congress days. Both of their sons 
are married: Charles Jr., a broker with Reynolds and Com- 
pany in Charlotte, and Richard Elliott, a lawyer with his 
father's firm in Lincolnton. "But no matter how demanding, 
this life is fun and interesting." 

Doris Long Jones 37x 

Rep. Walter B. Jones— FarmviUe 

Commenting on the difference between Washington 
and eastern North Carolina, Doris has come to three con- 
clusions: that longtime friends are irreplaceable, that every- 

one throughout the world is as nice as one will let them be, 
and that she sometimes knows all the answers to national 
crisis "but no one asks me the questions." They have two 
children, both married: Mrs. Bob Moye (Farmville), 
mother of three children, and Walter II who works for 
Wachovia Bank in nearby Greenville. 

Emily Harris Prayer 

Rep. L. Richardson Preyer— Greensboro 

Emily is looking forward to a new experience as Rich 
enters his first term in Congress, although she will be com- 
muting between Washington and her duties in Greensboro 
as mother of five children ( Rich Jr., Princeton; Mary Norris, 
UNC-CH; Britt, Woodberry Forest; and two at home, Jane, 
15, and Emily, 10). Emily does the family cooking, drives 
her share of carpools and plays tennis vigorously yet finds 
time for an incredible range of activity outside the home 
(including past service to UNC-G as alumni association 
president and Alumni Annual Giving chairman and present 
service as a trustee of the Consolidated University). 

Evelyn Reeves Taylor '31 

Rep. Roy Taylor— Black Mountain 

With her husband entering a sixth term in Congress, 
Evelyn Taylor acknowledges that Congressional service is 
not easy but extremely challenging. Their children are a 
son, Alan, a graduate of Mississippi State University who 
just completed two years of Marine service, and a daughter, 
Toni, wife of Dr. John F. Robinson, who recently entered 
military service for two years, and mother of the Taylor's 
three-year-old grandson. For the past two years she has 
been president of the Congressional Club, a special group 
composed of wives of Congress and cabinet members, and 
a part of the Washington scene for the past 60 years.
