Coming up first for visitors to the campus this morning is registration—the necessary Ollis Appointed To Southern Public Education Committee JIM OLLIS By Charlie Pratt Jim OUls, Director of Stu dent Activities at St. Andrews and Vice President of the Unit ed States Jaycees, was recently appointed by President Nixon to a twenty-eight member ad visory council on public educa tion in North Carolina. The immediate objective of this council is to work for an or derly transition from the dual system to a unitary system while preserving public educa tion of the hipest quality of all children. In an interview, Mr. Ollis rationalized the existence of such a committee. It is an State-Wide Meeting Women's Liberation L: Seven women students from St. Andrews attended a state wide Women’s Liberation con ference In Fayetteville last Sat urday. Approximately seventy- five women from Raleigh, Dur ham, Chapel Hill, High Point, Charlotte, Wilson, FayetteviUe and Greensboro met for the all day conference held at theHay- market Square Coffee House. A plenary session in the morning was spent in discussing the various projects being car ried on throughout the state. Women from Durham are work ing on “Lollipop Power”, publishing children’s books themselves which are non- sexist, and non racist. Sev eral areas were involved in running day-care centers for working mothers while others were organizing working wom en for higher wages and more awareness of the implications of their being women. Gradu ate students were organizing within their departments; a psy chologist will be organizing throughout the state as she tra vels. Discussion groups In the af ternoon considered the various problems which women face— from birth control to abortion, male-female relationships and roles, the plight of women wor kers, racism, male chauvinism (the notion that the male is superior to the female of the species and thus that women must play a submissive role within society). All ages, all classes were represented. The majority of women present for the confer ence were not students but wi ves, mothers, workers who have felt societal pressures as wo men and who are reacting to them.

The state organization looks to be a very good and real thing in the future. attempt by the Nixon adminis tration to obtain grassroots communication between it and the Southern leadership. The council may make recom mendations for money distribu tion, totalling 75 mUllon for the South and border states. Al though the council has no ulti mate power in thisarea,so far none of Its recommendations have been refused. In addition, the council works with local leadership to or ganized desegregation plans. Asked about the bussing of stu dents to achieve desegregatlcm, Ollis commented that he was not opposed to bussing as such but that he did object to bussing which placed students in bad en vironment. The bussing of ghetto students to a better school was necessary. Relating to this, he said that the con cept of exact percentages for integration of schools was un reasonable, because It Is im possible to do it. What he favors Is a maximum and minimum percentage breakdown by race. “Bringing youngsters together Is the whole point.” In regard to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg case pending in the Supreme Court, he doesn’t feel that the court wlU make any drastic changes In the policies now practiced. The problem of desegrega tion as Ollis sees it, Is that most people uptight about the issue refuse to make sacrifices for the welfare of the com munity. “The community Is the average of aU Its citizens, and people must begin to realize this.” Just as Mr. Nixon puts It “I and this administration are dedicated to enforcing the Uws (on desegregation) passed hy Congress and interpreted by the Courts.” Another problem which the councU must face is whatNlxOT calls the “white fll^t” to prl- (Continued to Page 2) shuffling and categorizing of friends of St. Andrews.
