f The Caroluva Joerivae StuJmt fyUicaihH Of Tfc* Un'iyrtHy Of North Cmrolinm-At Charhrtt, CHARLOTTE. N. C„ WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1966 Number 9 Annual Staff Plans Issue For August By BETTYE TRAPPS Journal Feature Editor Yearbook editor Judy Hardison is being “hush-hush” concerning the theme and color design o{ UNC-C’s first annual. “It’s more or less a tradition not to disclose the theme of the book or its cover design until the annuals are distributed on cam pus,” said Miss Hardison last week. Since June of last year, Judy and her staff have been busy planning, thumbing through an nuals from other schools for picture ideas, and dreaming up ways to make the ‘66 yearbook even better than the preceding ones. During the summer, Judy spent four days at a special workshop in Cambridge, Md. looking for ideas and planning layouts for this year’s annual. Three staff members Paris Hastings, yearbook, protographer, Ann Hood, business manager, and Marilyn Bowers, Campus Life Editor, also attended the session which was sponsored by the American Yearbook Compa ny. One idea which the editor is especially enthusiastic about is the new diminsion layout the annual will have. “It is altogether different from anything we have seen and has never been used before,” ex plained Judy. In addition to a new look, the annual will have a new name. Just how the staff will choose a replacement for the old “Si Si”, no one knows as yet. “We’ll probably ask the student body for suggestions and have a campus vote or hold some kind of contest. If we don’t get any suggestions, it will be left to the Journal Goes Weekly Through These Portals Pass N. Carolina’s Finest Youth’ By RICK DANCY Journal Nows Editor Probably the most discussed topic on campus is the Viet Nam war, and more specifically “how can I keep from spending a government paid vacation in Viet Nam”? The following is the result of interviews with Selec tive Service and Armed Forces Exam station personnel as well as a booklet published by Berkley students on how to “dodge the draft.” Mrs. Skidmore, head of the local Selective Service board opened the interview with revela tions which will be both hearten ing and depressing to local students. First, there is no decrease in sight of the size of the quotas set for local North Carolina boards. But on the other hand, there are no immediate plans to induct full time students. “Any full time student lead ing to a degree and if he is eli^ble to stay in school (will be classified) 2-s on a year to year basis.” The phrase “full time student” is left to the discretion and standards of the individual college. (Here it is 12 semester hours). Examiner Cecil Doyle of the U.S. Armed Forces Exam Station echoed the no. induction of college students view and said he hasn’t drafted a full time student yet. Recently there has been a great deal of talk concerning a wholesale lowering of induction standards, but Doyle said that a “man has to be physically fit. No man is called who would be ineligible in peace time.” Mrs. Skidmore stated that only the mental standards have been re laxed and these only to the extent that “high school graduates who failed previously are being recon sidered.” Examiner Doyle related that his station handles some 1000 to 1300 men each month with be tween 50 and 65 per cent of those examed being found acceptable for military service. Doyle, how ever, stressed that the final decision concerning who goes and who doesn’t is made by the draft board. Newspaper Will Be Weekly’ Starting Spring Semester This picture taken last spring shews the Kennedy Building arches in the background. More building pictures are on pages 4 and 5. The youngest man to pass under Doyle’s entrance sign — “thraagh these portals pass N. Carolina’s finest youth” —and leave for his basic training at Ft. Jackson was slightly over 19. Most are in their early twenties. Despite the publicity being given to the anti-war demonstra tors, Mrs. Skidmore has had no protestors demonstrate in or around her office nor has there been any increase in the number of conscientious objectors. Liberal Arts majors can rest a tittle easier with the knowledge that as of yet there is no breakdown within the student deferment classification as to technical and liberal arts. This was done during both the 2nd World War and .the Korean conflict with those shooting for BA’s going ahead of their techni cal counterparts. Now that you know where you stand with your board here are some suggestions from the Berk ley crowd in case you are still sweating the draft. Continued On Page 3 ’The Carolina Journal, at pre sent a bi-weekly newspaper pub lished by the students of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, has announced plans that it will begin publishing on a weekly basis starting spring se mester. The changeover will be made possible by an increase in staff members and advertising. “We would have gone weekly a lot sooner,” said editor Howard Pearre, “but we were lacking in both the advertising department and in qualified staff members. Now I believe we have enough of both. At least we have enough to at tempt a weekly.” Because of the semester break, this issue will be the only one published in January. The follow ing number, which will be pub lished in February, will be the first as a weekly publication. “This i s somethng we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Pearre. “We feel that a Mary Fore, English Prof, Dies Dec. 22 Miss Mary Stackhouse Fore, associate Professor of English and longtime English teacher at UNC-C, died Wednesday, Dec. 22, at Wesley Nursing Center after a long illness. Miss Fore had been teaching at the University since its humble beginning in 1946 in the basement of the old Central High School. Until 1957; when she became a full time facidty mepiber. Miss Fore taught, at Harding High School ip Charlotte .Be fore she came to Charlotte, she taught at schools in Kingsport, Tenn., Beaufort, S.C., and Day- ton, Ohio. Here she was in charge of the scholarship committee. She also worked a great deal with future teachers. ■ She was a member of the American Association of Uni versity Prerfessors, North Caro lina English Teachers, and Delta Kappa Gamma teachers honorary society. She was born in Latta, S.C., and graduated from Winthrop College. She received her mas ter’s degree at Colombia Uni versity. She did post graduate work at Harvard University, Didie University, and the Uni versity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Funeral was held ’Thursday, Dec. 24, at Harry and Bryant Chapel in the Oaks. Burial was at Magnolia Cemetery in Latta. Dr. Loy H. Witherspoon, Uni versity Chaplin, officiated at the service. Surviving are her brother, Wil liam C. Fore, a nephew, and two nieces, all of Latta. University deserves a weekly student publication.” With the change in pnblca- tion dates comes a new asrtga- ment of office space for news paper faciUtiei. The Journal, the yearbook, and the Stndent Government are alt using room 215 in the Union while con struction work is heing done in their former offices. ’The Journal is printed at the Charlotte Observer and at the Observer-News Enterprise in Newton. Composition work is done at the Observer and off-set printing is completed in Newton. “The cost of printing being what it is, we are going to need additional advertising if wb are to complete the year as we have planned,” Pearre said. “Also there is the matter of obtaining qualified staff mem bers. At present, no journalism course is offered (here) and those who know how to write newspaper are rather scarce,” he add^. Dr. Wallace, chairman of the English department, said a jour nalism course would be offered as soon as possible. Newspapers are distributed on campus in four locations — in the Union lobby, in L building, in the Kennedy building, and beween B and C buildings. Two thousand newspapers are published for each number and approximately 1800 .are dis tributed in wire baskets on campus. The Journal maintains an exchange program with about 30 schools in this area including the other three branches of tiie University of North Carolina. “Wq hope the students appr^ ciate a weekly paper. It’s thw newspaper: all we ask is that they read it,” said Pearre. Here’s Fall Final Exam Schedule Here is the exam schedule for the fall semester. Any student who has more than two exam inations scheduled for the same day should notify the Regis tration Office by Friday, Jan, 7, for rescheduling.
