appear most ready to help the
Forty-Niner cause. Gary, al
though only a Freshman, is giving
the Forty-Niners floor leader
ship which they have sorely
lacked for the past two seasons.
At 6’ 2” and 180 pounds, he
has good size for a guard. Dona
hue, another 6’2” Freshman, is
the sixth Forty-Niner starter.
Coach Murphy lists Bob Lem-
mond, Jerry Anthony, Robbie
Snipes, Pete Donahue and Gary
Cress as probable starters but
is quick to add that “This means
that Ben Basinger is more val
uable as a substitute because of
his versatility. Presently, he can
help us more this way. He is
as capable as some of our star
ters. We have six starters.”
Eddie Sherrill is a young gen
tleman who, to the delight of
Coach Murphy, is beginning to
challenge this cozy little setup.
He is a Freshman who might
be ready to play before anti
cipated. Another Freshman,
Mack Safrit, does some things
very well and will play some.
Mack was Mount Pleasant High
School’s leading scorer during
the 1966-67 season. Remaining
UNC-C players are vastly in
experienced and need a lot of
seasoning before being ready to
“Guilford is not exactly the
team for anyone who is weak
of heart and courage to tangle
with,” according to Coach Mur
phy. This is also the consensus
of the coaches of the Carolinas
Conference. Guilford is the pre
season favorite to win the con
ference championship. One big
reason is 6’ 8”, 235 pound Bob
Kauffman. The Senior NAIA Sec
ond Team All-American choice
scored 25.7 points per game and
garnered 16.3 rebounds per game
for the District 26 NAIA champgs.
As if that is not enough, Mr.
Kauffman has help from the likes
of Pat Moriarty at 6’6” and Ed
Fellers at 6’5” at the forward
spots. The 200 pound Moriarty
averaged 14.4 points and 10.3
rebounds per game. Fellers,
playing at guard last year for
the first time, averaged 14.0
points and 6.0 rebounds pergame.
Fellers made the move to guard
and has returned to forward as
a replacement for the injured
Leon Young, who is out for the
season because of a back injury.
Two high scoring junior college
transfers round out the starting
five. The Quakers are also
blessed with good deiJth on the
bench. They won 27 while losing
6 during the 1966-67 season. The
meat of that team returns and
Guilford will be favored over a
young, hustling, inexperienced
but eager Forty-Niner team at
Park Center on Tuesday night.
It should be a very interesting

their small number, and their
lack of mats. Their work is con
fined to several tumbling mats
which have been pushed together.
According to Coach Fleming,
this has it benefits. “The only
way to get perfect is to drill.
We would probably neglect this a
great deal if we were working under
Despite its problems, the team
has its bright spots. Mike Ander
son, a freshman who wrestled in
high school, and was undefeated
his senior year will probably
wrestle at the 145-lb. weight class.
Terry Eudy, a sophomore who
wrestled in high school, will most
likely fill the 152-lb. slot. David
Sells, who has no experience, but
could develop into a “good
wrestler”, is working for the
The team is .voung, and has ex
perience. They need wrestlers to
fill the 123-lb., 130-lbs., 160-lbs.,
167-lbs., and unlimited weight
classes. But even without these,
the team is not discouraged.

Other suggested innovations that
are relevant to the Charlotte cam
pus are the following: an efficient
method of course evaluation by
the students, the rotation of de
partment chairmen (as is presently
done at S. C. State College), the
inclusion of at least one student
on every faculty committee, a
weekly radio program sponsored
by the University to lucidate the
image and goals of the Univer
sity to the community, the hand
ling of academic violations by
those wrong (i.e., the students),
freshman seminars to relate the
various courses taken by first-
year students, inter-university co
operation (as in the Atlanta Col
lege Complex), and a system to
advance overall intellectualism in
which students live and eat with the
same people who are their class
mates (as demonstrated at the
University of Michigan).
Other topics of discussion in
cluded the fact that too many
college professors are more con
cerned about the function of in
creasing Imowledge than they are
about transmitting knowledge.
There seems to be an undue stress
on research and publishing mat
erial among “educators”. The
causes of this situation are in
volved with the facts that pro
motion and salaries are often based
on whether or not and how many
times a professor’s works have
The students and faculty mem
bers at the conference were con
cerned with the existing gulf be
tween students and teachers. The
group felt that there is a need for
more informal gatherings of stu
dents with faculty members. The
solution, they felt, lies in the
changing of the attitude among
instructors that students can be
looked at only as inferiors.
A statement of request for fol
low-up assistance is due by De
cember 10. If funds are avail
able, one of the programs des
cribed may be instituted during
the spring semester.
