Last December 2. he proclaimed
himself King of the Invisible Kingdom of
America and held a rather spectacular
coronation in the Pit at high noon.
The next day, Frank was suspended
from his teaching position because of
"unprofessional conduct, improper
grading procedures, failure to meet class
and inadequate coverage of course

with a group of his students met with the

committee unanimously voted to

RALEIGH- The State Board of
Higher Education Friday issued a report
which comes just four years too late for
most recent college graduates.
The board compiled results of a survey
of senior college and university placement
directors across the state on the
employment prospects for graduates in
Dr. Cameron West, board director of
higher education, said the survey
indicated jobs are available for college
graduates actively seeking them, but
graduates in some disciplines are having a
lot more trouble than those in other
Employment areas with "excellent"
job opportunities include health care,
accounting, elementary and special
education, mechanical and chemical
engineering, food science, operations
research and correctional science.
Discipline with poor opportunities
include social science education, foreign
languages, English and business
West said in some instances acceptance
science from UCLA in 1967 and entered
graduate school here that fall. He received
his M.A. in January, 1969.
Formerly an active member of Young
Americans for Freedom, Frank has now
abandoned the organization.
Frank said he decided to start his ow n
school because of the University's
bureaucracy. His decision was sparked by
an order to move the time of his Political
Science 41 class from II a.m. back to its
originally scheduled S a.m. "Since I had
no money and no buildings, my school
would be invisible," he said.
"You don't need much money or any
facilities to organize many 'courses.'"
Frank said. "Nearly everybody in town is
willing to donate at least a couple of
hours now and then to talk about
something they're interested in.
"It's ridiculous to think of education
as something one gets during the first IS
or 22 years of life. It should be a natural
and on-going thing. In the long run, each
person has to conduct their own Invisible
University, picking out the resources they
feel are necessary to help them achieve
whatever it is they're after."
Frank said he no longer asks people to
teach courses. "I only put courses in my

expectations are necessary for
Job prospects in engineering were
rated almost uniformly excellent or good,
except for the areas of aeronautical and
aerospace engineering, which have been
hit by widespread unemployment across
West cautioned any question of the
surplus of college graduates must be
answered with care because of variables,
including working conditions, salaries and
fringe benefits associated with jobs.
He said there was a question as to
whether a surplus of certain manpower
implied high unemployment or whether it
meant persons in the field were accepting
jobs not in keeping with their training.
"For example, graduates in chemistry
at institutions have thus far been
successful in securing employment, a fact
that runs counter to the national trend,"
he said. "This group has the lowest

people request me to. This year it's really
up to other people to help organize and

Frank said most of his time now is
divided between working on the
newsletter, answering letters, talking to
people and studying for his written
political science exams.
"I also enjoy playing the piano and
meditating a couple of times a day. And
naturally , I spend a great deal of care in

Although his address is also invisible,
messages can be left for Frank at the
Union information desk.
