Playboy Magazine is certainly
one of the most widely read pub
lications that exist today. Its
readers consist of people—female
as well as male--from all walks
of life and from all types of back
grounds; hence, the writers of such
a magazine should pay extra at
tention to the way they pre sent their
material. Such a magazine should
be read strictly as a pastime or as
entertainment, such as the case
may be. Mr. Hite, whose article
concerning Playboy appeared in
The Carolina Journal, is right
when he said that this magazine
was constantly pushing for “a
freedom to treat young ladies as
playthings--to be tampered with
and forgotten.” This idea, which
is now relatively universal, is
taken too seriously, in many
cases. Playboy dwells too much
on its idea of the “beauty photos,
suggestive jokes and cartoons, and
“clever” articles. If the Playboy
creators and writers truly think
so much of the female side of
sex, why don’t they leave well
enough alone, without trying to
establish evil motives in our
present-day society. At this point
one might ever wager that the wives
of the Playboy staff members are
expected by their husbands to be
respectable and “unexposed”
women. . . .

John Scott, former student body president
here, celebrated his twenty-fourth birthday with
a bang this year. And now he’s up for a medal.
Lieutenant J. G. Scott, as he is now known,
is damage control officer on the U. S. Navy
communications ship Liberty, the vessel which
the Israelis fired upon mistakenly in the Med
iterranean Sea during the Middle Easthostilities
early this summer. When torpedoes ripped
gaping holes in the unarmed Liberty’s hull on
June 8, John’s birthday, it became his job to
keep the ship afloat until it could harbor at the
island of Malta some 24 hours later.
This he did by using stray lumber to shore
up damaged bulkheads. Keeping the vessel afloat
was imperative since it had lost its lifeboats
during the attack.

Could Take Six Months
Lt. Scott’s commander, William L. McDonagle
recommended him for a bravery medal for his
action in distress. He was first considered for
the Bronze Star but soon came under consider
ation for the Silver Star, the third highest
bravery award for a serviceman.
It could be another six months before the
award becomes a reality since it must be
channeled through seemingly endless red tape.
President Johnson would have to approve it,
John was president of the student body during
the 1964-1965 year, when Charlotte College
was made a branch of the University of North
Carolina. He graduated that Spring with a B. A.
degree in liberal arts.

Acting In Navy Tradition
He joined the Navy in October of the same year
and attended officer training school in Newport,
R. I. After that, he attended a Navy school for
damage control, which is how he happened to
get his position with the Liberty.
John was home with his parents, the G. R.
Scotts of 2511 Cornell Avenue in Charlotte,
for a few days last week. He has now returned
to Norfolk, Virginia, where the Liberty is being
When he was home, John was taking the poss
ibility of receiving a bravery medal in stride,
his mother said.
“John was acting in the true Navy tradition,’’
said Mrs. Scott. “He didn’t have the big head
at all. Of course, I was so happy I was jumping
up and down, but he was pretty calm about the
whole thing,” she said.
Lt, Scott will probably be transferred to
another ship soon, since it appear the Liberty’s
damages will require quite some time yet to
