Moore Announces Special Program
To Find Employment For Students
Dean Donald MacKay
Governor Moore has announced
a special employment program to
find summer jobs for 100,000 high
schooi and college students in
He said, “When schools close
this summer there will be many
young citizens in need of gainful
employment to help provide money
to continue their education in the
fall. We are asking that private
business and industry help North
Carolina by providing meaningful
jobs for these deserving young men
Education And Industry
Problems Facing N. C.
A small group of UNC-C stu
dents were given an insight into
the public life of an athlete-turned
politician at the Young Democrats
Club - sponsored Jim Beatty talk,
last Wednesday. Arriving late, Mr.
Beatty dashed into the room apolo
gized for his poor showing, and
was off like a shot: “My being
late reminds me of an incident that
happened to me while I was a
student at. . .”
Jim’s diminutive size (5’6”)and
his involvement in sports served
as a running joke throughout his
talk: “Most milers are taller than
I am, which isn’t really too un
usual, since most men are taller
than I am.” Jim first became
interested in politics while stay-

ing as a house-guest of a sports
fan during his years at Chapel
Hill. His host, an ex-track man
himself (having run the 1/2 mile or
something), just happened to be
one of the powers in the state legis
lature, and a close friend and rela
tive of one of North Carolina’s
better knovm Governors. Being
exposed at such an impres sionable
age, and at such a personal level
Jim didn’t really stand a chance.
In fact, Jim has come to look
upon his participation in govern
ment as a continuation of his
athletic career, one in which he
represented the people of North
Carolina and the United States
in the Olympics and international
competition. He just runs on and
Steele Splits. . . .
“I’ve enjoyed every minute of
it,” exclaimed Mr. BrentonSteele,
Director of the University Union
here in summation of his two
years work here.
Mr. Steele, a twenty-five year
old graduate of New York Uni
versity where he received his
Master’s Degree in Union Mana
gement, will be accepting a posi
tion at another institution for next
year, possibly in the Midwest.
What does Jim see as the cen
tral problems facing North Caro
linians today? Certainly Education
and the need to draw industry to
the state. Pre-school programs
are a must: “Many students are
one or two years behind before
they enter school, and they never
catch up. I suggest that we make
them first-graders in every sense
of the word.” Jim believes that
the South has the greatest poten
tial for growth in the nation, and
its not just because we’re so tar
behind. A mention of highway con
struction seemed to hit a respon
sive chord; Jim admitted that his
stay in California (while training
for the Olympics) had impressed
upon him the need for good high
ways as an aid to commerce,
A short question and answer
period followed the discussion with
Jim explaining his positions on
Right to Work laws (for), liquor
by the drink (thinks that the legis
lature will pass such laws within
the not too distant future, tobacco
taxes (tor — could bring in a
minimum of five million dollars
a year), increased teachers sala
ries (pro — it they can find a
revenue source tor the increased
cost), and the role of Federal
government in local affairs (feels
that it’s not ail bad, but that local
areas can do more on their own).
Mr. Beatty also elucidated upon
the idea of a State department of
Urban Affairs to coordinate the
actions of State and Federal pro
grams. Thanking the students for
having waited and for their kind
attention, Jim Beatty left.
The summer employment pro
gram for students was developed
in conjunction with the Governor’s
Council for Economic Develop
ment, the several participating
State agencies and representatives
of business and industry, the CJov-
The Governor reported that the
first private organization to en
dorse the summer employment
program was the North Carolina
Citizens Association, a State
wide group of business and indus
try leaders dedicated to sound
government and growing economy.
The Association’s executive
committee met in Raleigh recently
and approved the Governor’s
request for suKX)rt of the summer
employment program. Officials of
the organization are contacting all
member companies immediately to
encourage maximum participation.
J. C. Cowan, Jr. of Greensboro,
president of the association, said:
“The business and industrial lea
ders of our State recognize the
importance of the Governor’s re
quest tor help in providing
summertime jobs for students. We
at the Citizens Association will
cooperate fully in requesting
assistance from aU our employer
Summer jobs made available
by business and industry will be
listed with the North Carolina
Employment Security Commis
sion. The Commission has offices
throughout the State and will work
with employers and students in
Mr. Tinkham, in the Financial
Aid office, has application blanks
for the convenience of any student
presently enrolled at UNC-C who
is interested in making applica
tion for summer work.
