Page 6 The Carolina Journal Wednesday March 13, 1968 Cardplayers Blues Card-playing on campus has become as much a part of the routine at the Union as game room participation. Most of the card games have taken place in the area right outside the cafeteria and adjacent to the stairs. A group of six or so students were quite stirred up when asked to move their card game from the Union lounge to the area set up explicitly for card playing. We were approached by these students who declared that they should be allowed to play cards anywhere they chose. They ex plained that all of the tables set up for card playing were m use at the time so they had to find another spot—and they chose the Union lounge. , , j According to Dean of Students, Donald M. MacKay, who asked the players to leave the lounge, that carpeted area is one of the few really nice clean, unworn places on campus. It is of impor tance to him and others who are strongly concerned with the development of this campus to maintain the Union lounge p a place tor conversation, relaxing, singing, etc. — the various uses for which it was originally designed. In the area outside the cafeteria entrance where card playing usually takes place, a consistent problem of messiness has existed. The ruling that cards cannot be played in the Umon lounge or lobby applies to all card players - not just the messy ones. And because of the fact that this rule equally applies to all, we wonder why another group of card players was not asked to leave the Union lounge on Friday afternoon. We understand the card players’ wishes, but the position of administration is also clear. The Union lounge is everyone’s lounge. Card games at school are notoriously long - and to the extent that players tie up Union facilities for hours at a stretch, they may be infringing on someone else’ privileges. There is no real reason for this to occur, since an area for card playing does exist. A few words should be devoted to the protestors’ methods of revealing their discontent. One move we especially liked was a sit-in card -playing demonstration near the occupied card tables, accompanied by a petition on bathroom tissue which declared their wishes. But other moves made were not so wise- like repeatedly begin ning games in the lounge after having been asked to move. Dean MacKay has said that extra tables will be placed down stairs as needed tor card games. So that should settle this dis pute.

MBS UNC-C LOUISE NAPOLITANO fFe Are Slowly But Surely Paying Education Students Disapointed (Ed. Note: The information in this article is provided by students in the Education Department.) By RODNEY SMITH The students and faculty of this campus are slowly but surelypay- ing for additional parking space from their own pockets. It was announced at the beginning of the year that everyone would have to pay a six dollar parking fee at the beginning of this semester. This includes the faculty members. Where else in North Carolina do professors have to pay to be allow ed to drive to school? Furthermore, an additional fee of one dollar was levied to buy extra parking stickers if a stu dent drives more than one car to school or if he loses his first sticker. Many students have tried to place their Spring stickers over the Fall one only to discover that the adhesive substance on the back of the stickers does not stick to paper. And the way a student usually comes to this unfortunate realization is by finding a little parking ticket under his wind shield wiper, looks at his rear bumper, and finds no Spring sticker. This chain of events costs the student two dollars—one to pay off the ticket and one to buy another sticker. The Student Court now has a pUe of parking stickers that looks like the original manuscript for “The Hornet’s Nest.” And itgrows stiU, due to the overzealous execution of the duty of issuing these tickets. This is carrying things a bit too far. If nothing is done through official channels, even the phleg matic student body here may arise in protest soon. Afterall, it’stheir money The senior education students have received their student teach ing assignments a full seventeen days before they are expected to report for full-time observation and teaching practice at their res pective levels of education. There was a great deal of surprise and no small amount of disappointment among many of the secondary edu cation students who have been assigned to junior high school des pite their preferences and pre paration for teaching in senior high school. The Education Department has explained that they were not res ponsible for the assignments, that the various school systems made the assignments, and that Char lotte-Mecklenburg is the system (Continued on Page 8) He has taught in the public schools of Escambia County, Flo rida.
