'There is a message in Womens'
Liberation that is just as appropriate for
women in the professions as well as for
women in the movement," Sheila Tobias
told members of the N.C. Business and
Professional Women's Club this weekend.
The message, the fight for equal rights
for women, was delivered by Mrs. Tobias,
associate provost at Wesleyan University,
and by U.S. Rep. Martha Griffiths
(D.-Mich.) at the 16th annual Spotlight
on Women conference.
"You don't have to decide if the
message is true or not," explained Mrs.
Tobias, "because it just rings true."
While Mrs. Tobias, a founder of the
National Organization of Women,
brought to the group an awareness of the
"problem that has no name." Rep.
Griffiths brought examples of the
problem in the way of court cases and

The Consolidated University has
become involved in the current attempt
to reform General Motors (GM), because
it owns 6,100 shares of GM stock valued
at almost $500,000.
The reformers are the Project on
Corporate Responsibility, a national
group which seeks to give GM consumers
and stockholders a greater voice in
At this morning's 9:30 meeting of the
Finance Committee of the University
Board of Trustees, 20 minutes will be
devoted to discussing whether the
Consolidated University should give their
6,100 votes to GM's status quo
management or to the Project.
Three students will be allowed to
attend the previously closed meeting. The
three are UNC's Gerry Cohen and Bob
Blair and N.C. State's Gene Tyson.
Student Legislator Cohen will address
the 10-member committee to explain
why the Legislature favors the three
proposals of the Project on Corporate
The first proposal, on shareholder
democracy, would make GM directors
more responsive to shareholders' concerns
by permitting all shareholders to make
nominations for and choose among
opposing candidates for director.
A proposal on constituent democracy
would give three of GM's most important
constituencies consumers, dealers and
employees the right to select three

Griffiths. "The Court is talking about

Rep. Griffiths successfully introduced
the Equal Rights Amendment to the
Constitution last session. The amendment
was opposed and amended by N.C. Sen.

Mrs. Griffiths plans to re-introduce her
amendment this year.
Mrs. Tobais related the message in
Women's Liberation by asking the women
to "look at the experience on the job of
working women and find the analysis that
rings true." She proceeded by giving
examples of psychological and social
obstacles to working women.
"Working women are the victims not
only of overt discrimination, such as pay
and promotion, but also of myths and
definitions of our roles," she said. "We
are asked to perform typically female
roles on the job, such as making coffee,

purpose of the rally is to solicit support
for passage of U.S. Senate bill S-495 to

mation necessary to judge whether GM is
meeting its public responsibilities in areas
such as air pollution control, automotive
safety and minority hiring.
'The University as a social institution
must be socially responsible," Cohen said.
"If the University is concerned about the
issues of environmental pollution or
constituent democracy they must vote
for the three proposals."
ECOS is also urging the University to
vote with the Project. "We are
sympathetic to their plans and I have
urged University Vice President (Felix)
Joyner to speak to the Finance
Committee," said ECOS Director Watson
"The purpose of the Project is to make
sure large corporations are responsive to

The University's stock is owned by the
Endowment Fund, used mainly for
student aid. According to Cohen, the
dividend loss resulting from the proposals
would be "negligible."
"The loss to the environment the
University will suffer if these proposals
don't pass is surely greater," Cohen said.
To inform people of the issues, Cohen
plans to ask Board members to attend
panel discussions on the University
campuses with students, faculty and
Project members from Washington who
have already agreed to attend.
"If the Board can't reach a decision
today, we will ask that they meet agina or
conduct a vote by mail," said Cohen.
The Project on Corporate

campaign to reform GM last year. The
Project's request that their proposals be

There are two battles being waged over the proposed
East Carolina University (ECU) medical school.
The first is one of academics. "Is it feasible to locate
a medical institution at ECU?" Most of the medical
experts hired to answer that question have reached a
definite agreement. Their reply is "no."
It is on the second battleground, a political front,
that the answer will finally be given as to whether or not
ECU will obtain the medical school. And it is here, in
the N.C. General Assembly, that ECU President Leo
Jenkins seems to be gaining a slow victory.
In 1963, the idea of locating a second state-supported
medical school in Greenville was first discussed. The
General Assembly then decided it would be a good idea
to have some sort of study done to see if the idea was
feasible. Each of the medical groups recruited for the
study returned the same answer "not at ECU."
But ECU has enough pull in the General Assembly to
skirt each of the pessimistic reports by experts. In 1963,
the General Assembly decided to include ECU as one of
the locations for a proposed medical school.
In 1965, it persuaded legislators to okay a two-year
program if it could meet standards by the first day of
three field goals in the first half and
only 15 for the afternoon.
Most of the regionally televised
contest was played at an
aggravatingly slow pace, broken

Mrs. Tobias expalined that social and
psychological obstacles to women begin
very early in infancy and are part of the
socialization process. "Boys are taught to
be stimulated and to control their
environment while girls are taught to fear
it and adapt to it."
She showed examples of how
children's books reinforce the
stereotyped images of women. "Boys are
shown in achieving situations and are
taught to please themselves. Girls are
shown in situations where they are
Mrs. Tobias said part of the problem
lies in the attitudes of women toward
other women. "Women resent working
for women because it is part of our
condition to feel natural to take orders
from men but not women."
''Women are taught very early that
they have to please men to get anywhere,
either in marriage or on the job. So we
resent other women's competition," she
"The only way is to change our own
behavior," she explained. "We don't want
to become like men but raise our own
consciousness. If we can make women
demand what is our right, the pillars will
During the question and answer
session that followed, the women in the
audience affirmed the examples Mrs.
Tobias raised, in tlieix own experiences.
"If these examples fit you, then you are
as much for Women's Liberation as the
college women," she said.
Rep. Griffiths gave the women's group
examples of the problem outside the
working world. One example was the
recent court case concerning a Florida
woman who was denied employment
because she had children under six while
a man with children under six was hired
for the same job. The Supreme Court sent
the case back to the lower court. "This
kind of discrimination happens often,"
according to Mrs. Griffiths. "The courts
are not the place to settle equal rights;
the place is in the legislatures. The
Congress should make federal, state and
city laws apply equally.
"The working woman should not have
to go to court to demand equal
protection. The Equal Rights
Amendment would force legislative
bodies to do it," she said.
Rep. Griffiths expressed the hope that
"some day some president will finally
have the sense to appoint a woman to the
Supreme Court. Someday the Supreme
Court will look down and say this
plaintiff or defendant may be a woman
but she's human and the Constitution of '
the" United States applies to her."
In reference to actions by Sen. Ervin .
to defeat the amendment, Mrs. Griffiths
said, "They aren't living in a real world
up there in the Senate. They are totally
unaware of the millions of women
working to put their children through
school or add to their standard cf living."
And when an affiliate group of the American Medical
Association told the General Assembly in 1967 ECU was
not able to meet prescribed standards, legislators
approved the school anyway and made East Carolina a
At a meeting of the State Board of Higher Education
Friday, East Carolina won another small but strategic
battle. The education board voted to recommend a
one-year ECU medical program over the proposed
two-year plan. As Jenkins said, it was not what ECU
wanted but it was a step towards eventually locating a
full four-year school there.
At that meeting, Gov. Bob Scott, chairman of the
UNC Board of Trustees, gave his support to the board's
recommendation and struck out at University officals
for trying to "block the approval of medical education
at East Carolina University."
The Governor referred to Consolidated University

the coach related.
Ribock was even more offensive,

occasion and elbowed reserve Kim
Huband as he walked to the foul
line another time.

Smith related the story.
Tar Heel Dennis Wuycik, driving
for two of his team-high 21 points,
incurred a charging foul. USC's Bob
Carver was awarded two free
throws and he sank them both.
That nullified Wuycik's hoop,
made the score 56-51 and set up
Carolina's final surge.
The Cocks extended the margin
to seven before UNC rallied in the
last four minutes. "We thought
we'd win then," Smith related. "We
were really disappointed not to
come out with a victory."

of them concerning Scott's position. Why would Scott,

Part of the answer may lie in the 1968 governor's
race. One of Scott's active campaigners was none other
than Leo Jenkins.
Why would Scott support a program costing
taxpayers $500,000 for a one-year school and over $150
million for a full four-year school.

himself at the moment.
