Protesting the Russians
Approximately 50 people took part in a demonstration outside Carmichael
Auditorium before Saturday's UNC-Russian National Team basketball game to
publicize the condition of Jews in the Soviet Union.
Members of the Hillel Foundation, which organized the demonstration, passed
out literature to incoming spectators. Twenty high school students from Durham
and Raleigh sang Hebrew freedom at the main entrance to the gymnasium.
Stresses need for racial unity

President Ford apparently . left his
audience happy during a four-hour tour of
the Triangle area Friday.
Helping celebrate the 50th anniversary of
predominantly black North Carolina
Central University in Durham, Ford stressed
the need for social and racial unity and
hinted that U.S. Sen. Edward W. Brooke, R
Mass., could possibly be his running mate on
the 1976 presidential ticket,
Later,. at the state Republican convention
in Raleigh, Ford again uged unity this
time among the Republican Party as he
delivered a strongly worded appeal for
CO. P. victories in state and national
elections next year.
Funds raised during receptions at the
convention were enough to alleviate the state
party's $65,000 debt, outgoing state
Republican party Chairperson Thomas S.

Atlanta, Rabbi Robert A. Seigel, Hillel

presented Ford with petitions from each

After arriving at Raleigh-Durham Airport
shortly before 10 a.m. with campaign
manager Howard "Bo" Callaway and three
North Carolina Republican congressmen,
Ford drove with Gov. James E. Holshouser
Jr. to the NCCU campus.
A capacity crowd packed McDougald
Gymnasium for his speech.
Ford received an honorary doctor of laws
degree from NCCU Chancellor Albert N.
Whiting, and said, playing on the name of
the school's athletic team, "This is one Eagle
that is really flying high today."
Reading from a prepared text, Ford
lauded the contributions of blacks and
NCCU graduates to American society.
"There is a lesson for all of us in the history
of American blacks and that lesson is this: to
develop to our maximum the will, the desire
to compete, to excel. That is what life is all
about: to achieve, to reach a worthy goal.
And blacks in increasing number have
attained many worthy goals in American
Ford stressed competition throughout his
NCCU speech, saying, "I believe that
competition breeds harmony, not division. It
is the lack of competition which breeds
division because people then feel they do not

Publicity damaged BSM image
by Vernon Loeb
The deluge of publicity sustained by the
Black Student Movement this semester has
cast the organization in a negative light, and
more so with white than black students
BSM Chairperson Lester Diggs said last
Twice since September the BSM's funds
have been frozen by the student body
treasurer, and numerous newspaper
columns have been devoted to the fund
freezes and the ensuing controversies
between the BSM and Student Government.
One of those controversies erupted into a
BSM demonstration on the South Building
steps, causing deep concern among UNC
administrators, as well as among both black
and white students.
"That sort of publicity has the potential of
painting a negative picture of an
organization," Diggs said, "and there can be
no question this sort of thing has happened."
But Diggs said BSM members still have a
positive attitude toward their organization.

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Monday, November 17, 1975
by Dan Fesperman
In a case that could drastically affect
undergraduate admission policies of state
supported universities, a University of
Maryland freshman has filed suit against
UNC, charging it with discriminating
against out-of-state students.
Jane Cheryl Rosenstock, of Ellenville,
N.Y., is the plaintiff in the suit that was filed
Friday, almost a year after her application
for admission to UNC was rejected.
The suit contends that the University's
policy of limiting out-of-state admissions to
15 per cent of total admissions is
Rosenstock's attorney, Lawrence A.
Young of Chapel Hill said Sunday the 15 per
cent quota is unconstitutional because out-of-state
children .of alumni are at an
advantage by not being included in that
Richard Cashwell, UNC director of
Ford's expression did not change during
After the speeches, Ford met with 12
NCCU student leaders.
Asked by one of them if he would consider
a black for a running mate if nominated in
1976, Ford replied, "Certainly Sen. Ed
Brooke, by his record, ought to be
considered. He has an enviable record of
public service, and I like him personally."
Brooke, who formerly was attorney general
of Massachusetts, is the only black senator.
-JFord also said he -anticipates no more
Cabinet changes when asked if he would
consider appointing blacks and women to
high governmental positions.
However, just prior to departing for
Atlanta, he said North Carolina Supreme
Court Chief Justice Susie Sharp "was one of
those being considered" to fill the Supreme
Court vacancy created by William O.
After leaving his car unexpectedly to
shake hands with a smiling group of NCCU
students, Ford and his motorcade proceeded
to the state Republican convention at the
Royal Villa Motor Inn near Raleigh.
Ford immediately went to a private suite
to eat lunch and rest, and then met for half an
hour with 32 Republicans who donated
$1,000 apiece to the party.
Accompanied by Holshouser, Sen. Jesse
Helms, Reps. James T. Broyhill and Jim
Martin and GOP Chairperson Bennett,
Ford then mingled with approximately 1 ,200
guests who paid $50 a ticket for the honor.
"Today we are standing," Ford told the
crowd. "And I can assure you that after next
year, a lot more Republicans are going to be
sitting in Raleigh and Washington in seats
that are now held by Democrats.
"I don't understand how North Carolina
can have three of the finest basketball teams
in the nation N.C. State, UNC and Duke,
teams that move like greased lightning
and have a Democratic-controlled
legislature that can't even get out of its own
way," Ford said.
Ford described his recent proposal to cut
federal taxes and spending by $23 billion as
"very simple, but very sound. But as you
might have expected, the Democrats liked
the idea of a tax cut, but they're singing the
same old can't-do chorus in the spending
"If they won't do anything responsible
about your taxation, maybe it's time you did
something about your representation. The
can't-do chorus has sung that tune long
effect of unifying black students."
Associate Dean of Student Affairs Harold
Wallace, however, said he thinks the funding
controversies have only added to the
previous misconceptions many students
have about the BSM.
"On this campus there's a lot of
misconceptions about what the BSM is all
about," he said. "They're not only politically
involved on campus. More people must be
made aware of the positive things the BSM

Margaret Folger said, "It's not that the

consideration, and they do not have to

N.C. State enrollment
to be limited in 1976
by Merlon Vance
North Carolina State University will
curtail its enrollment next year due to
economic problems which may eventually
force enrollment cuts at other schools in the
consolidated University of North Carolina.
The General Assembly has been unable to
provide adequate funds to keep up with
increasing enrollment at N.C. State, acting
Chancellor Jackson Rigney said Sunday. As
a result, the number of freshmen and junior
transfers will be limited there next fall.
Raymond Dawson, vice-president of the
consolidated university, said Sunday that
other schools in the system might be forced
to take similar actions in the future.
"We have had over-enrollment
systemwide," he said, adding that the state
cannot adequately fund the increased

students than money has been especially
serious at NCSU. Over-enrollment problems
also exist at East Carolina University and
UNC at Greensboro, he said.
However, UNC at Chapel Hill has;

financial limits, despite an increasing
number of applications, Dawson said.
Richard Cashwell. UNC director of
undergraduate admissions, said Sunday his
department has no current plans to change
admission policy here.
The amount of state money allocated each
year to UNC is based on the school's
projected enrollment. The University is
given a certain amount of money for a
certain number of students admitted and
Cashwell said,"When we get to that number,
we quit" enrolling students.
Approximately 2,800 freshmen were
admitted to N.C. State this year, but Rigney
said, "We expect to reduce that number
somewhat next year." To curtail enrollment,
admissions requirements will be tightened.
Next fall, only freshmen with a projected
grade point average of 2.0 or higher (out of a
possible 4.0) will be admitted. This past year
freshmen applicants had to have a projected
average of 1.8, Rigney said.
Junior transfers to N.C. State will need a
projected average of 2.5 to be admitted.
Rigney said he expects these changes in
admission policy to keep the school's
enrollment at its present level of slighty more
