From the President's Desk
Warns Against Apathy
Student Government must be a
continually working force for the
students of this University, and it
must also be a body which views
the total scope of campus life
from academic to extracurricular.
Student Government, if it is
meaningful, will overcome the
failures and exeed the successes of
an individual or group of
individuals. Bud Stewart, the new
SGA President, will be sworn in
today, and the following are just a
few of the general areas I feel he
and his administration will have to
concern themselves with based on
positive or negative results and
reactions from the past year.
The selection by the president
of a Student Advisory Council
Chairman is one of the major
tasks. The responsibility of this
position can reach great breadth,
and the job from this year on will
have a year and a half duration.
Tlie SAC replaces the Freshman
Advisory Council as there has
been a realization that the total
Student Government Association
(Student Body) must be reached.
The student handbook, THE
GOLD DIGGER, can be of value
to the students, and it should,
more than ever before, be a
The ad-hoc committee for
Community Affairs can possibly
become one of the most vibrant
forces on and on behalf of this
University. A framework must be
established which is better
organized, and the full view of
communication, TV, radio,
newspapers, the addressing of
groups, and the visiting of schools,
etc., must be investigated and
A truly meaningful course
evaluation would be of benefit to
all in the University system. The
evaluation committee, presently
only involving students in
organization, needs to involve
faculty and cctain administrators.
The question of University
Governance confronts all phases
of the University Community.
Somehow students, faculty, and
administration must be
interrelated to prevent duplication
and misunderstanding and to
provide true University growth
and communication. The
University Governance Committee
and the University Council are
examples of groups which must
continually endeavor to ask
questions and seek answers.
I do not view the new part of
the University community, the
dormitory students, as the
salvation of an apathetic student
body. However, 1 do see these
students as providing new impetus
for the new year as their presence
challenges every leader to improve
every facet of his actions.
Publicity standards of the
University must be strengthened
The elections must be seen to
have more meaning, and they
must be handled better. As long as
the class system is the basis for
student representation, 1 hope the
initiative will be shown that the
Freshman class of this year has
No matter who the campus
leaders are, each year it becomes
increasingly important for every
sector of the University to
co-operate and communicate with
the other sectors. Bud has the
potential to be a great leader.
Peter Abelard said, “For by
doubting we came to inquiry, and
by inquiry we perceive the truth.”
A.K. Psi Banquet Held
Eta Omega Chapter of Alpha
Kappa Psi, professional business
fraternity, held its First Annual
Founders Day Banquet on
Sunday, April 20, 1969. This was
the final formal activity for the 20
graduating seniors, most of whom
are charter members.
Charles S. Myerly, C.P.A.,
partner-in-charge of Ernst and
Ernst, a local C.P.A. firm, was
received into the fraternity as an
honorary member in recognition
of his leadership in business,
achievements in the accounting
field, and civic service. Other
distinguished service awards
presented were the Sterling Silver
Award to David Herman (the first
president of Eta Omega) for past
service, and the Bronze Award to
Danny Phillips for his
contributions this year as
Also included in the program
was the presentation of the
chapter sweetheart, Miss Donna
Stewart, and the formal
presentation of pledges before
they become brothers by Rick
Mitchell, Pledge Master.
Speaking to the group of
brothers, faculty members, and
guests, was Jack Smith, a national
speaker. His message on “Know
Yourself’ was the highlight of the

This is the challenge to
Bud-questioning, doubting- but
most important will be that he use
these questions and doubts to
learn, to perceive truths, to
improve, and to build for the
students of this University.
One final word-Bud holds a
higli, important position, but
every other student
representative, whether elected or
appointed, must be as diligent a
laborer in his position as the
president is in his. Pride is the key
for all the representatives. Pride
which is not arrogant or boastful
but is meaningful. That pride is
not pride in personal achievement,
hut is pride in the achievement of
My sincerest thanks to those
who assisted, criticized, listened,
or questioned this year. A special
thanks to Stewart Auten.
Vice-President, Mrs, Patsy
Stokely, and Kay Watson,
Treasurer and Secretary,
I also would like to thank R. T.
Smith for his criticism and
suggestions this year, and for his
active concern to ask if student
government is truly meaningful.
Some months previous THE JOURN.AL reviewed, at different times,
two recordings of Jose Feliciano. One was "Felciano!” and the other
was “Souled Out," For this issue we’d like to present to you reviews of
the two albums that preceded those two. Let's begin with Feliciano’s
first RCA album. “Fantastic Feliciano." (LSP-.JSS"!), I'll just list for
you some of the superb songs contained iir it: "(I Love You) For
Sentimental Reasons." “Someday (You'll Want Me To Want You),"
“Bye Bye_Blackbird.“ “1 Wish You Love," “I Miss You So." “To Each
His Own," and “Nature Boy." Lhe album's release set the stage for
Feliciano. His popularity grew. The public wanted more and more of
that soul-filled voice. .So much, intact, that, RCA followed the first hit
album by a second. “A Bag Full of Soul, Folk, Rock and Blues," (RCA
LSP-.J503), On this album are such songs as “A Woman. A Lover. A
Friend." “Goin’ I'o Chicago Blues." “Where I'm Coin'," “Work Song."
"Spoonful." the song by the Beatles, “Help!" and that beautiftil
“protest sotig" by Bob Dylan, “Masters of War."
It's rare that ati artist can be such a hit so sooti as is Jose Feliciano.
Those who like this artist, and wish to keep up w'ith his recordings, had
better get hold of “I'antastic I-'eliciano," and “A Bag Full of .Soul, Folk,
Rock and Blues." his albutn recording-releasing talettls gel loo far aitead

This was done last fall, and the
consensus seemed to be that it did
help to some extent.
Slater food services cater for
both N. C. State and
UNC-Greensboro. At both of
these institutions the majority of
students are unhappy with the
quality of food that they are
served. The Business Manager
assured The JOURNAL that the
poor service there was a direct
result of the limited amount of
funds that the school pays them
to feed the students, and that if
Slater is chosen, the amount per
student will increase and that the
quality of the food will be

Once in a whilc-a long whilo-a record company will produce a
recording of an original artists songs played by a orchestra. For
instance. The Hollyridge Strings produced several albums of songs by
The Beatles. The idea behind this type of production number is to cast
the tone of the original artist into smooth orchestrations suitable for
those who etijoyed the song when the original artist released it, but
didn't particularly care for the artist. Weil. The Johnny Aithey
Orchestra has just recorded on the RCA label an LB by the name of
“The Golden Songs of Donavati.” This alintm does recapltire the
artistry of Donavan with the intent, we suppose, that he wrote each of
them. On the album are:
“Catch the Wing”
“There Is a Mountain"
“Sunny Goodge Street”
“Wear Your Love Like Heaven”
“Skip Along Sam"
“1 lurdy Gurdy Man”
So, the only thing to say is, if you don't like Donavan-it’s difficult
to see why, though-but you do like tr> hear his songs, then RCA and
T'hc Johnny Arthcy Orchestra have dojie you a favor. A big favrn with
“The Golden Songs of Donavan.”
A New Crusade
Flamenco of the gypsies, OrictUal hints, Greek gaity, R &B - all
combine to make IIFIRB BERN.ST'FTN’S NEW CRUSADE the
adventure in music that it is. With guitars, percussion, and bra.ss. Herb
has built up a sound on this Ip that is iu)t soon to be forgotten. He
travels to the many genre of music and britigs from each a distinctive
flavor. Then he moulds the different sounds into the eclectic bag that
juxtaposes calypso and llamenco, pop and soul. The piccolos add ati
especially exciting tone to the tunes as Herb and his orchestra
demonstrate them. “Delilah” and “My Girl” arc a couple of well-known
songs that benefit from the New Crusade on the first side of the album.
“While You Were Out” is a not-so-wcll-kiiown ctit oti that side that
utilizes tuba and bass trombone for power and weaves in the light
government on campus. The campus was under observation by police
for several hours while the blacks made speeches and argued with white
students. Wlien the whites went back to the business of being students,
the blacks broke up and went home. And so passed the most racially
tense day at UNC-C during the past few years.
11. F. N. Stewart won the election for the SGA Presidency in the
lightest voter turnout in years. This lack of concern for the office on
the part of the majority of the students has been analysed in various
ways, but one conclusion is obvious: if this turnout is indicative of the
future of student government at UNC-C, then the students will not
derive much benefit from college here other than academic benefit.
There are many other stories, too numerous to mention, that might
be seen as worthy of inclusion in this list, especially the reception of
several large sums of money by the school. Below I have listed the
stories that 1 would classify as possible breakthroughs to the list: the
arrival of Dr. Paul Miller, the N. C. Legislature bill that suggests the
franchising of Asheville-Biltmore and Wilmington Colleges as
Universities, the University Forum, Steve Rayborn's classic
post-election-victory flight, and the student reaction to the Belk Tower.
Future events may even point to other occurances not listed here as
especially significant, but it is quite obvious that this has been a
newsworthy year at UNC-C.
