F.A,T, Group
Helps Refugees
BY JOHN BOLL
A new organization has arisen
on campus as a result of the
recent fund-raising efforts on
behalf of East Pakistani and re
fugees. The organlzaticm. Fa
mine Action Today! (F.A.T.)
consists of persons from the
campus and community, who are
interested in continuing pro
grams for the assistance of
the East Pakistani people.
During the first two meet
ings, study committees were
formed for the investigation of
fund-raising and non-partisan
political action feasable in this
area. Ecological conditions In
East Pakistan, as well as so
cial, economic, and military
conditions there, and immediate
pathways for fund-raising and
lobbying are among the topics
which have been researched
and discussed. As a result of
these meetings, action is now
being taken in the following
areas:
Firstly, funds will again be
solicited from the college and
community, to be channeled
through OXFAM, Inc. (with the
recommendation that a suitable
program for birth control be

each dorm, with each dorm dis
tributing different color
stickers. This will aid
passed, with the word “de
mand” being replaced with the
word “request” in their first
proposal. Their third proposal
was soundly defeated.
The issue of signing out for
both male and female students
who leave the campus on the
weekend was raised. It was
pointed out that on several spe
cific instances college officials
had been unable to locate stu
dents on weekends when parents
had called concerning an emer
gency. The senate passed a re
solution recommending that it
be college policy that the stu
dent assume the responsibility
of informing someone, either
suitemate or parent, of his or
her destination where he or she
can be reached, any time upon
leaving the campus overnight.
The purpose of the proposal is to
absolve the college of the re
sponsibility for the knowledge
of a student’s whereabouts, and
to place the responsibility with
the individual student.
In other business the senate
passed a resolution requesting
that the maintenance depart
ment use only organic fertilizer,
services a higher priority on
the college campus; (3) The
college drop general practi-
cioners from the health ser
vices so that in relation to doc
tors the students act solely as
citizens of Scotland County.”
After considerable discussion
their first two progosals were
security in recovering stolen
bicycles. There will be a brief
inspection of each bicycle con
sisting of a check of brakes and
rear reflectors. The rules that
were passed are as follows; (1)
No bikes will be allowed on the
porch of the College Union, (2)
Lanes will be marked on the
causewalk that bikes must stay
in, (3) Cyclists will be prohi
bited from using the ramp at the
end of the causewalk--instead
all cyclists will be required to
use the sidewalk going up to the
Vardell building, (4) All cyclists
who ride at night must have a
head li^t, (5) No bicycles will
be allowed in any building at any
time. No exact date was set for
the implementation of these
rules, but the date willbe wide
ly publicized when it is decided.
These rules will be enforcedby
security officers and judicial
action will be handled by the
Traffic Court.
Next, Hunter Watson and Rex
McGuinn requested and were
granted permission to speak.
They said that although they
were on the Health Services
Committee, they would like to
address the Senate as individual
students. They then proceeded
to make three proposals. (1)
“The Senate demand that the
administration publish by De
cember 10 a statement on their
attitude on the condition of the
health services, its priority in
relation to the college as a
whole, and its future status;
(2) The Sensfte make it a point
to push toward making the health

PAT PAULSEN
Spring Registration To
Eliminate Lines^ Hassle
Paulsen’s Comedy
Scheduled By PSU
Humorist Pat Paulsen, who
entertains at Pembroke State
University on Nov. 17,1971, has
been termed by critics as both
the Mark Twain and the Will
Rogers of the 1970’s.
His local visit is part of a
college and university tour
called “Pat Paulsen Looks At
The 70’s”. He will discuss
politics, ecology, sex, drugs
and other subjects of national
interest, utilizing a variety of
visual aids.
St. Andrews students are in
vited to attend this “lecture,”
which is to be held in the Pem
broke gymnasium at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets are on sale at the St.
Andrews College Union host
desk for $1.50.
Mr. William E. Pauley, Col
lege Registrar, announced last
week that registration for
spring term would not take place
between November 4-10, as in
dicated in the College Calen
dar, but instead would be held
during the period December
1-7. This action was approved
by the Education Policies Com-
,mlttee and the Faculty at their
November meetings.
The change was made for
several reasons. The original
idea behind the November re
gistration period was to have
but one registration period for
both winter and spring terms.
However, it was found that a
November registration for win
ter term would be too late, con
sidering the needs fbr plane re
servations, hotels, and other
arrangements for the interna
tional programs; for the book
store’s November 1 deadline on
ordering books for January; and
for the applications from pos-
sibly-Interested students from
other schools. So the winter
registration was moved back to
October. It then became less
important when the second per
iod was to be held.
The December date was ar
rived at after the realization of
several considerations; one, the
amount of time needed for the
spring schedule to be built and
analyzed by the division and
program chairman. In order to
avoid conflicts, and its revi
sion; two, the deslreability for
the students to have several
days between the time of the
availability of the schedule and
the time of registration when
final decisions are to be made;
and three, the fact the regis
tration procedures were not yet
finalized.
Mr. P auley explained the pro
cedure as it now staitds. In con
sultation with his faculty advi
sor, the student Is to complete
his series of course registra
tion card^ which are to be
turned in to the registrar's
office during the period Decem
ber 1-7. He will thai be given
an IBM receipt card to betaken
to the computer center for val
idation—anytime between Dec
ember 1 and February 1—show
ing that the student’s personal
information IBM cards have
been updated. The student is to
pay his bills to the business of
fice again anytime December 1
and February 1—where he will
be given another receipt. Upon
presentation of both receipts
to the Student Personnel Ser
vices Office, the student’s L D.
card will be updated, I. e.,
given a SPRING 1972 sticker.
This Is the completion of re
gistration. The students’ class
schedule print-outs will be
placed in their mailboxes. Stu
dents needing to drop-add, or
those not registered in Decem
ber, can expect to face the usual
lines on February 1st.
