Welcome-for the first time
or not-to St. Andrews, the land
of the free and the home of the
brave. There is much offered
today to acquaint you with parts
of the campus. Perhaps your

the social life, the day-to-day
life on a college campus, the
quantity and quality of aca
demic assignments, dorm life.
The community of St. Andrews
offers you a chance to see col
lege life as it is, and can be.
Listen and watch and feel for a
glimpse into the undercur
rents which combine Into the
essence which Is S. A.

Ollis Appointed To Southern
Public Education Committee
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
In an interview, Mr. Ollis
rationalized the existence of
such a committee. It is an
State-Wide Meeting
Women's Liberation
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
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. High school sophomores

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
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-
