New Drinking Bill In Effect;
Look To Dean For Permission
What exactly does the new
drinking regulation mean for
students and for the whole cam
pus? What procedures, if any,
need to be followed concern
ing possession and consumption
of alcoholic beverages? What
responsibilities do students
have? Dean Decker, in an in
terview earlier this week clarl-
To SHARE-IT With The
Students Of Laurinburg
Share-It means to give a
breakfast to a child who does
not otherwise get a full meal
a day. Share-It means that a
student at the elementary or
junior high level gets tutor
ing service at a sufficiently
early age. Some enthusiastic
students from Laurinburg In
stitute have become involved
In the program Share-It, with
short-term goals of setting up
a breakfast program and
tutorial offerings for both ele
mentary and Junior high stu
dents in the Laurinburg area.
Their enthusiasm stems from
their openness to outside help
and to sharing the responsibility
of running the program.
Fifteen St. Andrews students
are working with the LI stu
dents to set up a basketball
game between the varsities of
both schools for fund-raising.
Also In the planning stages
is a theatre group presenta
tion from LI on campus fol
lowing the basketball game.
The proceeds from these two
functions will go toward pur
chase of food for breakfasts
and as well go toward strength-
ing the organization. Once
Share-It becomes established,
it hopes to seek regional sup
port from SCLC and eventually
apply for a government grant
to expand their operation.
Self-nominations for Student
Association officers will end
tomorrow at noon. Campaign
ing will begin Monday with
elections the following Mon
day, March 22.
Ten graduate students from
the University of North Caro
lina at Chapel Hill who are in
the field of science education
will visit the SA science fa
cilities tomorrow. The group
under the supervision of Dr.
Norman Anderson will be given
a tour of the science building
by Dr. Pedigo.
in the Park"
Is Held Over By
Popular Demand
Through Monday
It is noted that after last
week’s protest by members
of the student body and Dean
Decker in regard to racial dis
crimination in articles in the
Laurinburg Exchange, the paper
has ceased the practice.
Eighteen members of the
Board of Advisors will visit
the campus today and tomor
row. The Advisors are minis
ters of representative Presby
terian churches in the Synod of
North Carolina, selected to help
interpret the St. Andrews pro
gram to their respective con
gregations. They will attend the
opening performance of “Bare
foot In the Park” tonight.
Tomorrow they will hearapre-
sentatlon of the C&C program,
tour the Avinger Auditorium
and the science building and
hear a student panel led by Bob
Davenport and Grace Over-
holser. Students on the panel
Include Chris Abell, Tom
Cocke, Elsie Mason, Charlie
Pratt, Ellen Tisdale and Carol
Vann Jolnes commented on
his role in the Share-It pro
gram; "We (he and members
of the Peace Corps) are will
ing to supply manpower help,
resources In the form of trans
portation, and fund-raising
help; and anything else that
the people of Share-It wish
from us.” “I really like what
they are trying to do, and we hope
we can help them.” Vann men
tioned some of the problems
that they might face, especial
ly in the breakfast service.
“It is going to take a lot of
organizational work to plan the
preparation of food and the
means for getting students to
the First Baptist Church where
the breakfasts will be served.
It might be possible to get
mothers who do not begin work
ing until late in the day to
prepare the food in the morn
ings. This would allow for the
money to be spent on trans
portation and food costs.”
A long-range goal for Share-
It includes moving toward Job
placements as a further at
tempt to eradicate the many
aspects of poverty. The stu
dents would be working pri
marily with summer employ
ment and job referral.
No Reading Days
By Faculty Vote
The faculty yesterday de
cided that April 1 and 2, noted
in the calendar as Testing Days,
will retain that classification.
No classes will be held and no
college-wide or class-wide
tests will be given but faculty
members may schedule con
ferences or individual testing
and require students to be pre-
sent. Check with Division
Chairmen or individual pro
fessors to see if you will be
fled the implications of the
campus drinking stituation as
created by the statement re
cently approved by Dr. Hart.
“The use of alcoholic be
verages in the residence halls
is prohibited outside the suites.
In specific social events ap
proved in Advance by the Of
fice of Student Personnel Ser
vices, alcoholic beverages may
be permitted in other locales.”
The Student Personnel Ser
vice has set up trial “applica
tion for social event Involving
alcoholic beverages” which is
designed to protect students,
the college and the Integrity
of student government. Decker
noted. The application includes
the event, date, time and loca
tion to Identify the particular
social occasion. Also to be
filled out are sponsoring or
ganization if any, student lead
er and faculty-staff member
responsible and whether these
persons will be present the
entire time, what alcoholic be
verage will be served, estimat
ed number to attend and wheth
er there will be non-SA stu
dents involved. Decker pointed
that a “student leader” Is the
student sponsor of the event
who ex post facto becomes a
“student leader”. This form
must be completed by any stu
dents planning to drink on cam
pus outside the suites. Drink
ing is now legal, however, in
the entire suite Including the
suite lounge.
In order to avoid abuse of
this privilege. Decker anti
cipates that some unit of the
campus will sponsor at least
some of the first “special oc
casion” parties. Kings Moun
tain had the distinction of being
the first group to drink outside
the suites legally with its ‘ ‘tast
ing Party” Monday night. Dean
Decker or a meml>er of the
Student Personnel Offices will
weigh each application Indivi
dually and may set up condi
tions under which the occasion
may take place. A copy of the
application will be kept on file
and the original will be return
ed to the student who Is tak
ing responsibility for the af
fair, for his protection.
Decker stressed that wheth
er students realize it or not,
this Is a big step forward for
the campus and needs to tie
handled Juslclously.
The primary reasons the ap
plications procedure was set
up were to Insure compliance
with state laws regarding pos
session and comsumptlon of
alcohol and to take Into ac
count “many points of concern
beyond those reasonably ex
pected to be considered by stu
dents.” As well. It is antici
pated that alumni and faculty
groups may wish to take part
In on-campus drinking. The
same procedures are binding
on all members of the SA com
Decker also pointed out that
no beverages may be sold on
campus even In some sort at
package deal because of county
regulations. They must either
be “brown bagged” or given
away free.
The legal situation Is simply
that St. Andrews as a private
institution has the authorization
to permit or refuse the right
to possess or consume alcohol
on Its premises. This permis
sion, which has been given with
the reservations pointed out
above. Is revocable and may be
suspended if abuse of the pri
vilege Is discovered.
