Approximately 5 blacks burned
copies of the Yackety Yack Thursday in a
display of dissatisfaction with the
yearbook's lack of black students.
At approximately 3:30, several
students gathered at a garbage can in The
Pit. Using rubber cement, the students
ignited their yearbooks and proceded to
rip them into small pieces.

Graduate students will receive Yackety
Yack yearbooks free of charge, instead of
paying S6 as was announced formerly.
The policy change was issued by

Explaining the basis for the former
Yack refusal, Stallings said, "last year's
interpretation of the Student
Government budget was that graduate
students would have to pay for their
Undergraduate students, under this
interpretation, had already paid for Yacks
in student activities fees.
"This unfortunate misunderstanding
arose because that decision was made by
someone in last year's administration,"
commented Stallings. "But we
unanimously believe the graduate
students are totally justified in getting a

money allocated to the Yack from

Cynthia Crawford, a sophomore from
Durham, said she burned her yearbook
because "I wasn't in the book. But
seriously," she added, "I think blacks are
an integral part of the campus and they
should have been depicted as such."
Many of the students who participated
in the burning took the incident in a
Gilliam, chairman of Publications Board.
"'Although graduate students don't pay as
much in fees as undergraduates,
theoretically they paid like everyone else
Mitchiner ottered an apology
graduate students for their lack
coverage in the Yack. "This situation
arose by working last year under this
understanding (that graduate students
would not receive a free Yack) from my
superiors." he said. "I did not give them
proper coverage within the schools
because at that time I could not afford to
and had no reason t "
'The misunderstanding arose from the
assumption last year that graduate
students would not be paying the fees,"
Yacks will be distributed at the north
side of the Student Union 1-5 Friday.
Students can go by the Yack office in
Suite D of the Student Union 1-5 p.m.
Student Government and the
yearbook staff do not foresee running out
of Yacks due to the policy change.
Treasurer Donnie Dale said if a reorder
was needed, "it would be the partial
responsibility of Publications Board and
Student Legislature." He said funds for a
reorder would come from the general
surplus of Student Government's budget.

On a more serious note, several

Yack as just another publication that
ignores blacks. But they added this year's
edition was more than ever a '"group ot
untruthful pictures about the whites of
the frat-jock-sorority group."
