The purpose of this council is to aid freshmen and transfers in their transition from high school, etc., to the UNC-C way of life.) Dear Freshmen: On behalf of the Freshman Advisory Council and the student body, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to tlie University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The members of the Freshman Advisory Council and myself hope to make your transition from high school to college as smooth and easy as possible. This year during orientation we have planned some new and, we hope, interesting events for your participation. First, today we have planned a picnic and dance. During the picnic Miss Barbara Harding from WIST radio station will be the commentator for a fashion show sponsored by Milton’s Cloth ing Cupboard here in Charlotte. At this event you will see the latest in fall campus fashions. Later, at the “Boom Boom Room,’’ you will be entertained by Chester Mayfield and The Casuals. Refreshments will be served and at intermission some nice door prizes will be given away. Wednesday morning will bring more of the orientation program. First you will be assembled to witness some skits depicting college life. Next, you will learn the meanings of the Honor Code and the Judicial Code. Gus Psomodakis, president of the student body of UNC-C, will speak to you on the organization of student government and the consti tution. After the assembly, each of you will be put in groups of 12 to 15 students for discussions of the skits and the topic “What should I know as a freshman?” These discussion groups will be led by an FAC advisor. Do not fail to ask your FAC advisor questions on things which are not clear to you. The FAC members and myself will be more than glad to assist you with any problem which may confront you during the coming year. Also, during registration the FAC will be at your service again to help you with registering for classes. Please call on us for any help you may need. I earnestly hope that each of you will have a most en- ioyable and fruitful year. MIKE THOMAS Chairman, FAC V-P Burgess Plans To ‘Outlaw Apathy’ By RICK DANCY Jim Burgess, vice-president of the student body, has reported for the fall semester with a long list of plans which he hopes to out into action during his nine iiionth term. Burgess, a successful candidate on the Student Party ticket last spring, sees no increase or decrease in the work load of the student body vice-president as a result of changes made last year in the student body constitution. These changes shift many of the duties formerly assigned to the president to the vice-presi dent’s schedule. They were intended to free the president from his customary overload and add prominence to the position of vice-president. Burgess plans to use his posi tion as speaker of the legislature to “insure that the legislature will become meaningful instead of a coffee hour.” Also on tap for legislative scrutiny will be the judicial branch. Burgess hopes that a means will be found to “bring added prominence and responsi bility to the student court.” The vice-president also hopes BURGESS ... No “Coffee Hour’’ that certain flaws in the stu dent honor code can be worked out. It is Burgess’ personal belief that the clause stating that the student "has the responsibility, but not the mandatory obliga- (Continued On Page Three) Netv Profs Added To Roster Twenty-seven new faculty members have been added this year to the already outstanding list of academic leaders at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Dr. Bonnie Will Welcome 1800 Students New Title: Acting Chancellor On hand to greet the expected 1800 students enrolled for the fall semester of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte will be a familiar personality with a new title. Dr Bonnie Cone, former presi- dent of Charlotte College, has been named acting Chancellor of this branch of the Consolidated University. Dr. William Friday, president of the Consolidated University, made the interim appointment pending the selec tion of a permanent chancellor from a long list of prominent educational administrators. Although Dr. Cone is new to the title she is hardly new to the duties and responsibilities ac companying the position. ’The perseverance and diplomacy dis played by Dr. Cone during her struggle to bring a branch of the Consolidated University of North Carolina to Charlotte gained her nationwide fame through a story in Time magazine. The 1965 fall session enroll ment of around 1800 students marks a 17 per cent increase from the 1500 students enrolled for the tall semester last year. Director of admissions Robert Grogan expects little or no trouble in accommodating the additional students. According to him, if it was necessary, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte could handle as many as two thousand. DR. BONNIE . . .
