Chowan to share in ECU ph/sics grant STUDENT NEWSPAPER OF CHOWAN COLLEGE Chowan College in Murfreesboro is one of 10 two-year colleges in North Carolina to receive benefits from an $82,400 grant to the department of physics at East Carolina University. Chowan comes under a cooperative pro gram between the ECU department and colleges. The grant was awarded by the National Science Foundation and covers a three-year period. It will fund a program under which students take the first two years of study in Student handbook test 'floors' freshmen girls The freshmen took the handbook test on Sept 20 the girls made scores of less than 80 The purpose of the test, according to Dean McKeithan, is “to protect ourselves from ourself '■ Many girls are getting in trouble and do not know exactly what they are doing wrong. She feels that if we know 80 per cent of the rules and regulations in the handbook, we stand a pretty good chance of not getting into serious trouble Another test will be given in two weeks to every girl on campus. A specific date has not been set, but it will probably be on a weekday Emphasis will be placed on rules and reg ulations concerning such things as cooking in the rooms, falseficiation, keeping pets, late permission and the cut system It has not been decided yet as to what is going to happen if we score less than 80 on the make-up test One of the sophomore advisors said she feels that “the tests are a good idea, but wonders if the faculty could have passed it ” He's the envy of campus males Jack Hassell, superintendent of the maintenance department, spent the night in Belk Hall with the girls last week! Supposedly he was guarding the castle since some boy wonder’s Hurculean strength overcame him while opening the door for his lady As soon as the glass crashed to the floor, the rumor of a panty raid spread all the way over to Hassell He feared those gallant knights in Mixon might cross through the open moat and rescue those dam sels in distress He bravely kept watch through the night and early the next day drew up the open draw bridge by substituting plywood for the bro ken glass physics at one of the cooperating community colleges and then transfer to ECU where they complete requirements for the B.S. and M.S. in physics. Another aspect of the program, according to ECU physics chairman. Dr. William Byrd, involves in-service training of physics teachers in the cooperative. Dr. Byrd, director of the grant, said, “A series of topical conferences during the academic year together with workshops during the summer months will allow par ticipants to update their knowledge and competence in physics.” Co-directors with Dr. Byrd are Dr. Carl Adler of the ECU physics faculty and George Hazelton of the science and mathematics department at Chowan College. The grant is the second awarded to ECU by the National Science Foundation through its College Science Improvement program. The other grant was awarded last year and gave the departments of physics, chemistry and biology a total of $163,000 for program improvement and faculty research. Dr. Byrd is also director of that grant. Two-year colleges and faculty members participating in the program include the following: Chowan College, Murfreesboro, George Hazelton; College of the Albemarle, Eliza beth City, David Thomas Hodges; Kittrell College, Kittrell, Roy L. Bass and Rudolph Williams; Lenoir Community College, Kinston, Lowell Lee Keel; Louisburg College, Louisburg, C. Ray Pruette; Mount Olive Junior College, Mount Olive, Joseph McAlpin Vann. Braves looking for win No. 3 By DAVID “SNAKE" MAYO Chowan’s Braves are on the war path after a scalping trip to Keyser, W. Va. last week where they brought home the scalp of Potomac State. Tomorrow night at 8 p.m., boasting a 2-0-1 record, they will be entertaining at home as Croft Junior College of Durham comes calling. A new opponent, Croft will be looking for it’s own “scalp job" following two losses to Lees McRae (61-6) and Carolina Mili tary School (12-0). Scouts report a “very big team” with a fast-running back, Alan Banks, of Raleigh. Coach Garrison, who was somewhat dis appointed with his team in last week’s victory over Potomac State, said, “After being on the road for the last two weeks we should do a real good job this Saturday night, especially with the student body behind us.” Solid support means a lot to the success of the Braves. The coaching staff is looking for a full turn-out from Chowan to help make the Braves No. 1 in ‘69. Vol. 2, Number 4 Murfreesboro, North Carolina Friday, October 3, 1969 Chowan students face charges Maybe he's brushing up for a test? Even the concrete rail around the front of Marks Hall can serve as a stopping place to crack a book and perhaps take on a little bit of “book-larnin' ' Sorry, the photographer is slipping-no name. With 2-0-1 record, Chowan ready for Croft Braves go on rampage for 29-12 win By PHIL ROYCE Dan Dayvault gave sagging Chowan Col lege a boost when he punted the ball dead on Potomac State’s one-foot line late in the third quarter, and the Braves went on to a 29-12 victory Saturday afternoon in Keyser, W. Va. With Chowan holding a shaky 20-12 lead, Dayvault, on fourth down, kicked from Potomac’s 35. The ball landed near the goal, bounded high into the air toward the five and then reversed direction before being downed on the one-foot line. Chowan capitalized on the accurate punt to score nine quick points. Two plays by Potomac netted zero yards and on third down the Potomac quarter back, Lanny Propst, fumbled in his end zone for a safety and two points for Chowan. Potomac kicked off from their own 20 and Dayvault returned the ball from Cho wan’s 23 to Potomac’s 47. Nine plays later, quarterback John Casa- zza passed 20 yards to Billy Harris for a touchdown. Robert Kilbourne kicked the last of three extra points for Chowan’s 29th point with 10; 13 left in the game. During the drive, Casazza called eight straight running plays, six by Dayvault who contributed 26 yards. The final play was the scoring pass, the fourth Harris has caught from Casazza in Chowan’s three games. Casazza has pitched seven scoring strikes, three against Potomac. The first half produced three of Chowan’s TD’s, two on passes from Casazza. With the game six minutes, 42 seconds old, Casazza threw a touchdown pass to Morris Newlin, freshman end from Greensboro. The play covered 47 yards. Potomac countered with a first quarter 'score on a 26-yard pass from Propst to end Stan Schaefer. The extra point attempt was blocked. Potomac needed nine plays to cover the 77 yards. Chowan added two scores in the second quarter. The first came on a one-yard run by Carroll Hart, Oxford sophomore, who aided the 64-yard drive gaining 32 yards on two other carries and one reception. The other score was a 68-yard pass play from Casazza to Wingate Burden who out- raced the lone Potomac defender who had a shot at him around Potomac’s 30. When it appeared that all the defensive back had to do was reach out and horsecollar Burden, the speedy Annandale, Va. freshman poured it on to pull away in the foot race of the day. The score was set up by an interception by Lee Copeland, Cofield sophomore, at the Braves 32. Chowan started the second half with a 20-6 lead but Potomac roared back using only five plays for a score, registered by Propst on a quarterback sneak from the one- foot line. Potomac covered 65 yards in the drive. Chowan then padded its lead using the safety and touchdown. Dayvault, the Kannapolis sophomore tail back, was Chowan’s leading ground gain er, picking up 68 yards on 11 carries even though he played only a few minutes of the first half. Greg Park, freshman from Newport News, Va., collegted 45 yards on seven attempts. Hart added 39 yards and one touchdown on eight tries and Casazza, sophomore from Old Bridge, N. J., 38 yards on seven carries. Chowan’s record is now 2-0-1. Their other victory was 16-14 over Gardner-Webb. Last week the Braves tied Baltimore Community College 14-14. After two away games, they meet Croft Junior College of Durham at home Saturday at 8 p.m. STATISTICES CHOWAN Potomac State 250 Rushing Yardage 55 190 Passing Yardage 209 440 Total Offense 264 9-16 Passes 11-29 130 12 2 2 Penalties First Downs Interceptions By Fumbles-Lost 15 13 2 1 Four Chowan students have been arrested and charged for possession of marijuana since last Friday. The latest came Tuesday when sophomore Donna Diane Collier was arrested on the campus and charged with possession of hash ish, a derivitive of marijuana. The arrest of the 20-year-old coed from Virginia Beach, Va. was made by State Bur eau of Investigation Agents Charles Ray of Ahoskie and T. W. Caddy. Miss Collier is charged with possession of five-tenths of a gram of hashish. According to Ray, possession of one-tenth of a gram of the drug constitutes a felony. The accused posted a $300 bond and will appear before the Winton District Court Oct. 9. College officials said Wednesday that Miss Collier has waived all rights to a hearing before the Faculty Judiciary Committee and accepted suspension. Last Friday night less than one ounce of marijuana was confiscated from three male students from Chowan. The arrests were made at approximately 8 p.m. at Cozy Tavern in Murfreesboro. SBI agents said possession of less than an ounce of the drug constitutes a misdemeanor. Those accused of possession were Robert Bissett Elmore, 20, Fairfax, Va,; Richard M. Moriarty, 19, Alexandria, Va.; and Harry A. Flipping, 25, Negro athlete at Chowan from Waynesboro, Va. The three students were released after post ing bonus of $200 each and were to have appeared before District Court yesterday for a hearing. It was unofficially reported Thurs day that the hearing was being postponed. The three students have requested hear ings before Chowan's Faculty Judiciary Committee. College officials said further information will not be released pending completion of investigations by the State Bureau of Investi gation. Former Gardner-Webb Dean arrested for illegal drug use BOILING SPRINGS, N. C.—AP—Thomas F. Holland, 30, former dean of students at Gardner-Webb Junior College, was arrest ed Monday night on charges of obtaining illegal drugs. Holland was freed Tuesday on $2,000 bond. The tril was scheduled for Oct. 22 in District Court in Shelby. SBI Agent Van Parker said Holland was arrested on four charges of obtaining bar- bituates and narcotics. Parker did not say how the drugs were obtained. Holland resigned his post at Gardner- Webb in April, after serving as dean for nearly three years. While at Gardner- Webb, he served as an adviser to several student organizations, including the student government. He was a past president of the Boiling Springs Lions Club and a former member of the Boiling Springs Board of Commis sioners and several other civic and charit able organizations. DONNA COLLIER Record budget approved Approval of a record budget of $2,265,000 was one of the highlights of the. semi-annual meeting of the board of trustees of Chowan College held Monday in the president’s office. The board also voted to update the master development plan of the college. The first plan was initiated in 1958 and this was later revised in 1966. The chairman of the board, H. D. White of Rocky Mount, was empowered to name a committee with the responsibility of work ing on the master plan. The board also sel ected a Raleigh firm, James B. Godwin and Associates, landscaping architects and planning consultants, to assist. This firm was active in planning the present master plan. The progress of the college, in light of the master plan, will be a subject for dis cussion at the Fourth Annual Planning Con ference to be held Saturday, October 4, in Robert Marks Hall. Other matters considered included dis cussion of the need for a new science build ing to replace the present structure. Dr. Bruce E. Whitaker, president, reported that the present building is inadequate in size and facilities. The present building was constructed in 1956 when the college’s enrollment was 251. Chowan this fall has an enrollment of 1,306 full-time students. The trustees indicated ^heir interest in constructing the new science building as quickly as feasible. According to White, the project received top priority from the trustees. A nine-story dormitory for men is now under construction. The board also heard the annual Presid- dent’s Report, a review of the previous year’s operation and financial standing of the college. The 1968-69 budget was $2,060,000. Something to think about and perhaps to act upon Thin air' didn't bother Braves in win over Potomac State (Editor’s note: The following appeared in “Southern Accent,” a column by Sam Ragan in “The Pilot.” Ragan is editor and publisher of “The Pilot,” a weekly news paper in Southern Pines, N. C. Obscenity, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. So says the general counsel to the Post Office Department. Thus a vict ory against junk mail was scored by an Ann Arbor, Mich., man. The story began when Roger Staples got tired of advertising circulars addressed to “Resident" filling up his mail box. He sent the circulars back to the post office, declar ing they were obscene and asked that no more be sent to him. He had a right to do so, of course, under a year-old law which says advertising is considered “pandering" if it is “erotically arousing or sexually provocative, in the opinion of the recipient” An assistant postmaster remonstrated with Staples by insisting that the advertise ments of department stores were not pand ering. Staples replied, “I consider the adver tisements for beds, sheets, pillows, girdles, intimate feminine apparel, and other such materials offensive, ’ He went on to say a picture of a lingerie model was “just as obscene as anything I ever saw from so ■ called panderers. ’ He used the forms pro vided by the Post Office Department and sent copies of his letter to his congressmen. Senator Phillip Hart referred it to the Post Office Department, and the general counsel, David A. Nelson, said that Staples was, right. “Mr. Staples is correct in the assertion that his determination of the erotically arousing or sexually provocative nature of an advertisement may not be ques tioned” An official of the department added that under the law a person can “declare that an ad for a sack of potatoes looks sex to them. And if they do, we’re obliged to take ac tion." Staples, of course, was having a lot of fun. But his success could well prompt others to take action on junk mail. Swallow neatness The latest example of how foolishness feeds on foolishness is the invention of the short-hair wig. It’s for long-haired boys who need to cover their tresses with a close- cropped hairpiece for appearances at work, at military Reserve meetings, before traffic court judges, etc. We suspect that what’s underneath will show through, and we aren’t necessarily talking about the hair. - Columbia (S.C.)
