Faculty Salaries Need
At least 14 facalty members have announced their
intentions of leaving the UNC-C campus next fall to look
for greener pastures. Five of them are long time assistant,
associate and full professors. We are indeed sorry to see
them go and more than a little concerned about their
Some are going back to school themselves to advance
their academic statuses. Some are just leaving. But some
are leaving because they are dissatisfied with the lack of
proniortions and pay raises in the past three years.
It’s this last group we are concerned with.
Building a good university requires many components.
Buildings, desks, black boards, telephones, air conditioning,
chalk, offic'es, water fountains, laboratories are all neces
sary in the building of an education center of the
magnitude of a university.
Also needed is a good sharp administration for running
And a university is students. After all, this is the whole
purpose of the university.
But before all the other things, a university has to have
teachers. The faculty is the very staff of the university. The
faculty is the most important component.
So this is what we are concerned about.
Recently opened was a costly modern administration
building, necessary, of course, for the efficient running of
this school. But at such a great cost, the state cannot afford
to supplement faculty salaries to a satisfactory level.

floor in the new ballroom. But again at such a great cost,

The administration, on top of having a luxurious new
building to work in, is highly paid. But here again at such a
great cost, the state cannot afford to supplement faculty
salaries to a satisfactory level.
We are sorry to see members of the faculty leave for
any reason, but particularly this reason. Somebody needs to
do some explaining.
Mr. Watts Is Right;
We Need Regulations
In last week’s issue, columnist Ronald Watts advocated
the establishment of an effective Elections Board with
definite regulatory powers. We agree with Mr. Watts that a
strong elections board is needed.
Mr. Watts pointed out that some type of supervisory
body is needed to curb illegal signs, party members
supporting independents, party members supporting the
opposition, etc. Again, we agree with Mr. Watts.
An Elections Board bill now being considered in the
North Carolina State University Student Legislature ap
pears to be a possible answer to campaign problems on this
This bill provides for a seven member Elections Board.
Two members are to be appointed by each of the two
parties. Two independents are to be appointed by the
President and approved by both parties. 'The Chairman of
the board is to be appointed by the President with the
c-onsent of the Legislature.
The State bill goes on to list the responsibilities of the
proposed Elections Board. These include the administration
of the elections rules, the administration of the elections,
the safe-keeping of the ballots as required the investigation
of all alleged violations of elections rules, the notification of
any candidate of any violation within three days of the
report, the administration of the meeting of all candidates,
and the safe-keeping of all records of the elections.
We feel that legislation similar to this, or at least
modeled after it, is needed here in Charlotte. There can be
no denying that a working regulatory body for elections is
You are right, Mr. Watts. “The nature of a collegiate
campaign should be above the circus affair.’’ With a good
Elections Board it will be.
Faculty Members Tell What They
Desire And Abhor In A Woman
On Friday afternoon, and a
shower smitten day at that, it’s
hard to track down anyone who
is finished with his classes for
the day. Professors adhere to the
practice of leaving as early as
possible, too. Most of them steer
themselves across slick looking
glass surfaces of the parking lot,
each step sounding like a spank
But added to the lure of going
home to get out of the murky
weather, it is especially difficult
to pin a professor down for a
quoted opinion. If the opinion
wanted has to do with feminine
mystique, the task of the reporter
on approaching them is much
like treading on bubbles with
track shoes. One has to be more
than careful with questions put to
a male faculty member about
women. Many of them, especially
those in the marriage harness,
are quite expert at giving oblique
answers, if they do commit
themselves at all. And it would

New Type Of Spirit
By DAN TALBERT
It is possible to write about
many different aspects of campus
life at this university, and rela
tively easy to criticize most of
them. However, it is equally easy
to find things that are nice,
things that go right (no pun
intended'. Many of these niceties
are considered rather minute
parts of the whole university
body. One, however, appears to
me as a major plus factui, and
one that is not found just
anywhere. That being the tre
mendous feeling of “University
Spirit’’ on this campus.
Students at Charlotte have
been called apathetic by them
selves, insincere by their lead
ers, and at Chapel Hill a
Charlotte student is described
as something short of a wali;-
We are called apathetic be
cause we have taken a unique
situation and tailed in five long
years to establish a tradition of
sincerity, a “rah-rah school
spirit", and whatever the oppo
site of a walking fungus happens
However, we have a situation
here that is complet''Iy different
from Chapel Hill, Appalachian
State, even Pembroke. We are all
students who came here wanting
to go som.ewhcre else, and stayed
because we liked it.
The University Spirit that
exists on this campus is like
the campus itself. It is hard to
find examples, if you are on
the outside looking in. Oc
casionally University Spirit
shows itself when you hear a
student telling another how
great the new Administration
Building looks and what a
beautiful campus this will be
when all the buildings are
University Spirit is being
aware of all these things. Most
important University Spirit is
caring enough to drive ten or
twenty miles each day to meet
classes and then back at a part
lirr.o job. Doing all ttiis and not
ending up some point north of
Saigon is not apathy.
Perhaps someday, working
w'ith our unique experience, we
too can become complacent,
drunk and disappointed.
