What’s happening with the Royal Blue
and White on Carolina’s campus? For one
thing, it is a sure sign that Zeta Phi Beta Ik
Joining alongside the AKAs and Deltas in
the promotion of sisterhood.
After weeks on line, Stella Jones, a
sophomore, Carol Lewis, a senior, Linda
Quick, a junior, and Diana Thompson, a
junior t>acame members of the newly
founded undergraduate chapter. The
pledgees performed in an impressive
stepshow in Great Hall on November 18.
1978.
Since the Zet Phi Beta Sorority was
founded on January 16, 1920, at Howard
University, it has become an international
organization. The week of January 15-19
com-memorated Zeta’s 59th anniversary.
Zeta’s functions for the week included its
first annual banquet, held at L.A. Jordan’s
Restaurant, an NAACP Fund Raising
drive, a project for the Carolina Nursing
Home and a James Rec Room jam with
free refreshments and music by Fourplay.
The organization’s primary emphasis is
on scholarship with recognition of
sisterhood, finer womanhood, and service.
The members of Eta Phi Zeta, the
graduate chapter, felt UNC could benefit
from the addition of an undergraduate
chapter and adviser. Doreatha Fouchee,
adviser of the graduate chapter, set out to
instill into the four pledgees the pride and
devotion mutually shared by all sorors.
The pledgees were not always confined
to soci^ probation, which Diana feels may
lead to isolation and the formation of
cliques among sorority members. Because
of this, the pledgees learned to respect
their sorors without the motivaiton of fear
and felt the same type of respect being
generated toward them from their big
sisters. The big sisters concern and en
couragement provided a better motivater
than force could have ever been
As Spring Rush approches, the new
sorors intend to earn the same kind of
respect and instill the same type of
devotion into the next Zeta line. “After all,
some of pledging should be fun,” said
Thompson, president of the undergraduate

A
chapter. Enthusiastic about the spring
line, Zetas vow never to pre-select their
members. Presently they anticipate a
three-to-five-day interest line.
Zetas recognize an even more
significant contribution to be made to the
campus. They feel there is too mudi
competition between fraternities and
sororities and not enough drive toward a
common goal. Zetas feel unity is of prime
importance, nd Blacks at UNC need to
seek that unification in communit>' and
campus activities. Thompson said the
purpose fo fraternities and sororities is not
to isolate within a group and claim its
superiority but rather to formulate a
common pride in that organization and
others like it and to stimulate a true
awareness of brotherhood and sisterhood
on a pedominately white campus.
The future holds plans of progress foi
Zeta Phi Beta. The colonization (rf a Phi
Beta Sigma Chapter and a scholarship
program are being considered for the ne:rt
year.
The chapter itself is a challenge. It is up
to Diana, Carol, Linda and Stella to
estaUish Zeta’s qualities and lay the
foundation for what Zeta wil become at
UNC.
NEWS NOTES
Off-campus
Outlook in South favors business
ATLANTA, GA (CPS)—Southern liberal arts majors, diversify. You’ve nothing to eain
but s«ne jobs.
That’s the essence of a new report by the Southern Regional Education Board called
Supply and Demand for CoUege Graduates in the South, 1985. The report’s most startling
conclusion is that only 80 percent of the South’s college graduates in 1985 will find jobs
that are usuaUy filled by college graduates.
Comparing the supply of graduates with job openings, the board found “the gloomiest
outlooks” for the liberal arts, education, communications, law, and social work maiors
of 1985. •’
Women get sexually aggressive
(CPS) On the heels of research showing that pornography can in fact make some men
more violent in their attitudes toward wcxnen comes research suggesting that women,
too, become more aggressive when sexually aroused.
Zodiac News Service reports that Purdue University psychologist Robert Baron
conducted experiments with women who were made angry and shown “erotic
materials.” The women were more willing to give more severe electrical shocks to other
volunteers than were women who were also angered, but not shown the materials.
Science News thinks the research, described in a paper written for the American
Psychological Association, is the first documented suggestion that sexual arousal and
aggression are related in women. A recent study by Ed Donnerstein of the University of
Iowa illustrated the same relation in men.

Staff Writer
The BSM held its first general body meeting of the spring semester January 17 at 7:00
p.m. in Upendo.
SGA president Jim Phillips talked to BSM members about the April Springfest, which
will feature soul and rock performing artists. Phillips solicited suggestions for per
forming artists that Black students would desire if the first choice groups, such as Earth,
Wind and Fire, were not available.
He also explained the technical aspects of organizing the Springfest and ^v^at it would
be like.
A BSM member suggested that Phillips form a committee consisting of a Black
student that would choose satisfactory groups to perform at the Springfest. Persons
interested in serving on the committee were asked to contact Greg Pennington.
Greg Cranford, candidate for Hinton-James Representative to the Campus Governing
Council, explained his platform and interests concerning the office he seeks.
Election for the CGC position will be held Feb. 14.
