The Caboliiva Joernal itudtnt fublicatian 0/ The UniyertHy Of North Carolina At Charlotto VOL. 1 CHARLOTTE, N. C. , WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1966 NO. 4 Troutman, Jacobs Vie ForUNC Beauty Crown By PATRICK MCNEELY Kay Troutman andTerry Jacobs have been chosen to represent this campus in the Miss Consol idated University beauty contest which is held each year at the North Carolina State-University of .North Carolina at Chapel Hill football game. The contest is to choose a beauty to represent the entire university system. There are two contestants sentfromeach branch of the University (UNC, NC State, UNC-C, and UNC-G.) Last year the contest was held in Raleigh and this year’s voting UNC-G Beauty, A Local Girl, Wins Contest Lynn Burkholder, a dark-haired, brown eyed lovely from The Un iversity of North Carolina at Greensboro, won the Miss Consol idated University beauty contest, the JOURNAL learned just before going to press. Miss Burkholder, who attended South Mecklenburg high school in Charlotte and is the reigning Car olina Carousel Queen, shrieked, “Oh me, not me!’’ when the news that she had wrai reached her dur ing half-time ceremonies at the North Carolina- N. C. State foot ball game Saturday. Toni Greenwood of the Univer sity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was first runner up in the craitest. UNC-C’s Terry Jacobs was second runner up. According to Tim Britton, pres ident of the student body here, the choice of Miss Burkholder was quite a popular one, Tim, who was sitting among delegates of the Consolidated Student Council, said Miss Burkholder was an almost unanamous choice of his group. Both UNC-C’s entries in the pag eant, Kay Troutman and Terry Jacobs, agreen that Miss Burk holder was the logical pick. “She was just perfect,” they concurred. No positions further than second runner up were made known in the eight-girl contest. will take place in Chapel Hill. This beauty contest is different from most in that there is no even ing gown, talent, nor swimsuit competition. The winner is chosen by inter views with the judges, who are local dignitaries and citizens of the home of the contest. There fore, poise, a winning smile and a pleasant attitude are important attributes for contestants. These three things are packaged (and packaged nicely) in our two representatives. Kay is a 19 year old sopho more with hazel eyes, sandy hair, and stands at attractive 5 feet, 1 inch tall, 98 pounds. When asked about her feelings concerning the contest, she said, “It’s really a great honor, I get confidence from the tact that I have been chosen two years consecutively; when I have confidence, I just naturally feel great. I hope this year is as great as last year.” Terry is 5 feet 8 inches tall, and is attractively shaped into 133 pounds. She has dark browri hair and mystic brown eyes. Terry is originally from Madison, Wis consin and is now making her home in Charlotte with her par ents. Terry is a 20 year old, second semester sophomore. Terry revealed her feelings about the contest when she said, “I feel that it is a great honor to have the confidence of my fellow classmates. I hope that I can ful fill their confidence by not only representing UNC-C, butby bring ing home the throne. I hope that in this way I will bring reco gnition to our school as a whole part of the consolidated Univer sity.” The hopes of this campus are riding high on these two lovely maidens who will represent UNC-C at Consolidated University Day on Saturday, September 25. Chosing these two girls was quite a task for the judges because of the equally attractive runners -up, Carol Morris and Linda Twyman. All students who will attend the Carolina and State game on Sat urday can be assured that their campus is well represented by these two coeds who share the title Miss Consolidated University Representative. “iVame The Swans’’Contest Ends 4 P.M.

By JOHN MOORE The number of full time stu dents at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte has in creased this fall to 1,353 from 1,187 in the fall of 1965, Final figures for the fall of 1966 indicate that UNC-C has a full - time - equivalent en rollment is acquired by using a certain formula by which the number of part time students is reduced to a smaller number re presenting full time students until their amount equals that of a full time student. For instance, it might take four part time students taking one sub ject a week to be counted as one full time student. This ratio is added to the number of full time students to get a full-time-equ ivalent enrollment which is the basis for state budgets for the in stitution. The institution, however, regis tered a decline in the number of part time students from 628 in the fall of 1965 to 385 this fall. 'The head count dropped by 77 from 1,815 in the fall of 1965 to 1,738 this fall. 99 ^'^The Bitter End Predicted For Sunday Afternoon THE BITTER END SINGERS The Bitter End Singers will lead off the performing arts program of the University Union in concert at Charlotte’s Ovens Auditorium on Sunday, October 2, 1966, at 3:00 p.m. Tickets for this attraction may be obtained at the Union, the Nat ional Hat Shop, Ernies in Cots- wold and at the door.

The Bitter End Singers borrow ed their name from the night club in which they first appeared in iate summer, 1964. Since then they have performed at the White House twice and have toured with Mrs. Johnson on a whistle stop. They have become a nationally known group via appearances on such television shows as the Steve Lawrence NT3C Follies, Shindig, and Show Street with Phyllis Diller. The BitterEndSingersfeature a new sound which is made up of the best of three old sounds. They call it “Folk-Dixieland- Rock”. This combination has be gun to make an important im pact on the musical field and it is enhanced by the tact that the group uses electric instrumenta tion rather than the usual folk guitars. Their music ranges from hard hitting rock numbers such as the Rolling Stones’ “Hard Times” and Dixieland tunes like “Mississippi Mud” and Basin Street Blues” to folk standards among which are “Crawdad” and the Rooftop Sing ers’ “Walk Right In.” Variety, the Bible of the enter tainment world, said their show combines “Lots of animation and high thratrical sight values with strong vocal arrangements.” The group has made two albums, “Discover the BitterEndSingers” was followed by “Through Our Eyes”, both on the Mercury label. The Bitter End Singers are cur rently on a tour of colleges and universities. They recently played before an East Carolina College audience.
