cannot continue past this semester
if more money cannot be obtained.
Because of the benefits hundreds
of Carolina students have received
from the service, Student
Legislature should provide the
needed money out of any funds
presently not allocated. If all
funds are allocated, or if Student
Legislature merely refuses to
appropriate funds, student
organizations especially fraternities
and men's residence colleges and
individuals should contribute
whatever possible to insure the
existence of the service.
Without it, many students will be

An annual complaint against
registration and drop-add is that the
system is ludicrous, inane and frequently
drives a student near the verge of a
nervous breakdown. However, the
registration process has functioned
admirably over the years in calming
disruptive students down before their
first day of classes and getting students
who envisioned an enlightening year of
academia into courses they have never

for the politically-minded student.
College campuses all across the country
are in a state of transition. Th? political
scene has evolved from an intolerable
focus on irrational radicalism to a sincere
commitment for change within the

evolution, when completed, wiU cast the
student as a responsible adult instead cf

seniors. Officials told her to come back
during the first days of registration, talk
to her advisor and then pick her courses
No one bothered to tell the young lady
that all of the courses she wanted would
be gone by then and that she was
inevitably doomed to the drop-add lines.
The first day of registration came and
true to her determined nature she went to
see her advisor.
"He's still in Europe vacationing," the
department secretary said. "You'll have
to come back next week."
"But how can I register in time if I
can't see my advisor?" the coed wailed.
"How will I get enrolled again?"
"Next week,', the secretary sniffed.
Almost in tears the girl ran out of the
office and bumped into her "vacationing"

he said. "Dr. Futzer is and he is on

To the editor:
A very strong complaint that I have
against many of the students in this
university is their constant complaining
about our marching band. These people
are always saying how bad the band looks
These people blame the band members
and the director for the problems, which
is entirely misplaced. The students go to
football games and see bands that have a
large number of members in new and
colorful uniforms marching across the
field, followed by our UNC band. Then
these students try to compare the tow
bands. How can a band that has
university and student government

The first registration day passed and on
the second she stood at Dr. Futzer's door.
At 9 a.m., the "vacationing" Dr. Futzer
came strolling in the office. After telling
her all the courses he wanted w.ere closed
out, he approved alternates Physical
Education 42, RTVMP 42 and an
astronomy course of her choice.
"Anything else you get, you'll have to
fight for," Dr. Futzer said and sent her to
the registration lines at Woolen Gym.
Two hours passed. The coed had
finally reached the door. She went to the
lines at the course tables to begin picking

gets very little support from anyone?
Both the student government and
university officials say it's the other's
responsibility to supply money but we
need support from everyone. Then our

ensembles as the Kentucky and USC
bands. 1 am sure none of the other bands

The coed sadly turned around to
leave, but was stopped at the door.
"You can't leave through this door,',
shouted a Nazi-like voice. "This is the
entrance. Use the exit on the other side
where the insurance salesmen and credit
card peddlers are."
The next day she tried again. This time
she was going to be sure she was supposed
to come and after another two hours in
line she confronted the door attendant.
"Why didn't you come yesterday?" he
asked. "All the courses are nearly gone."
She explained she had been told to
Oh, the old bag said that?" The
attendant laughed hysterically. "Around
here they call her 'Crazy Cathy.' She
doesn't know what she's talking about."
He was not lying. And all the courses
were closed out.
A sympathetic P.E. 42 professor saw
the girl in tears at the door and came over
to offer some assistance.
Dmovrats among older voters and do
not nec esvinly mean that the Democratic
Party is the party of the young. If
ounger voters are still registering
Demx-rat at ejection time, it can be
attributed to a lack of individual
reasoning. Young people unfortunately
have the bad habit of playing follow the
leader which is ridiculous in politic.
President Nixon has been characterized is
the vi'.am mainly because of his Vietnam
policy. Although the present
administration is winding down the ir.
it is still branded as "Nixon's Wir"-a
tru! unfortunate situation.
If Mine for the Vietnam tragedy is to
be p'.icsd on a president, it should be on
the head of Lyndon Johnson with a large
boost from John Kennedy. The
Democrats, not the Republicans, were in
control of Washington during the 160's
when the war could hic been atotd
The Democratic Congress approved the
war-machine appropriations and chose
the guns instead of butter economy. The
Democrats, under Johnson, committed
tie hundred thousand of our men to
Vietnam, not Richard Nixon. It was
Johnson and his Democratic advisors who
escalated the war and now it is Nixon and
the Republicans uho are getting us out.
How can the Republican Party and
President Nixon possibly be blamed for
this Democratic fiasco' Only after the
168 election did the Democratic Party
undergo the metamorphosis into the
"party of doves". Let us not forget that
Richard Nixon and his Republican
administration will bring us out of
Vietnam, not the Democrats.
In all areas of the political scene the
Democrats are making a pitch toward the
newly enfranchised voters. We cannot
afford to look to the Democrats for
inspired leadership. Historically the
Democratic Party has been the party of
war, of a tangled foreign policy, and of a
strained economy. We must not aid in a
Democratic victory in the congressional
or presidential races of ll)72. The stakes

and its members, blame the ones truly at
fault, the university officials and student
government. These are the ones that give
all the money to other organizations and
seem to forget about the band. The
marching band is viewed by more people
than any other organization on this
campus and to many, the band is
considered the representitive of this
university. The students should help the
band become the sharp- looking
organization that they want it to be. Aim
your complaints where they might initiate
constructive responses, and give the
dedicated band members a chance!!
"You come to my 12i30 class, honey.
Well make room for you somehow."
The coed was excited by the first act
of decency that had been shown her. The
whole process of registration had killed
the girl's spirit until this instance. Finally
she had met someone who did not hand
her a computer card, who did not tell her
to come back another time, who did not
push, shove or tear.
Elated by her stroke of good luck and
with the knowledge she was officially
enrolled at the University with one
course, the coed anxiously awaited 12:30
to come. She braved the lines at the
bookstore to buy her one book, her one
composition book and her one pen. With
these supplies she marched into class and
sat in a front row seat. She read her text
and got ready to answer any P.E. 42
"question she was asked.

professor walked into the classroom.

gentlemen. And now for a fun year."
