Organized in 1961, it serves a county in which approximately % of the families earn $3,000 or less annually. In 1970-71, the Peace Corps operated 14 different projects reaching some 230 children and 20 adults. The projects, ranging from children’s tutoring programs to transportation services for the rural elderly poor, each has its own co-ordinator and the sup port of volunteers. The 75 stu dents and seven faculty mem bers who comprise the Corps give four to six hours of vo lunteer service weekly. In addition to regular pro- grams, the Peace Corps per formed special projects such as painting a foster home and setting up a swim program for underprivileged children. The National Volunteer A- "^rds, formerly known as the Lane Bryant Volunteer Awards, were estabUshed in 1948 to bring attention to “unsung volunteer heroes.” The pro- gram has been administered by the National Center for Volun- Action (NCVA) in Washing ton, D.C. since 1970. The National Center for Vo luntary Action exists to gene rate new responses to Ameri ca’s pressing needs throu^ greater utilization, coordina tion and recognition of volun teers. Henry Ford n is chair man, and Edwin D. Ethering- ton president. Formed in February 1970, the National Center is a private, non-profit organization and the hub of a growing network of local Voluntary Action Cen ters. NCVA also runs the na tion’s most comprehensive Clearinghouse of date on volun teer activities, as well as volun teer campaigns to meet critical national needs. This year’s awards program, the first under NCVA, drew the largest number of nominees in its history. From these, 119 Citationists have been selected.

But whUe most SA students are ‘ ‘for peace” (whatever that means) few really know much about Vietnam. On Tuesday, December 7, we will have a chance to get the facts from an eyewitness who knows what’s really going on. Don Luce, the man respon sible for the exposure of Thieu’s “tiger cage” prisons for poli tical prisoners on Con Son Is land, will show a movie in Jr. C&C, answer questions during lunch in the President’s dining room at 1:30, and speak in the Student Center Lounge at 3:30. Not only will Luce speak, but his Indochina Mobile Exhibit, which includes over 300 draw ings and art works, 24 3 1/2* by 5’ photo-posters, and a 23 minute narrated slide presenta tion, will be shown in the Stu- dent Center Lounge all day Tuesday. Luce, an agricultural expert, served in Vietnam as the head of International Voluntary Ser vices (a private service or ganization that served as the model for the Peace Corps). He knows the Vietnamese peo ple. After exposing the “tiger cage” political prisons, Luce was kicked out of Vietnam by the embarrassed Thieu govern ment. Luce’s visit to ST. Andrews is sponsored by the Politlcs- History Department, Junior C&C, and the College Christian Council, The St. Andrews Chorale and Brass Ensemble, under the di- rectlon of Professor Edwin Barlow, will present their Christmas concert on Sunday evening, December 5th, at 8;00 p. m. in the Liberal Arts Auditorium, Admission is free. pulpit type and the other will be a large stage for drama and choral productions.

Assemblies and Public Events Committee member Annette LaUber reported that the committee had almost fill ed the calendar for this year, and was working on next year’s calendar. In order to get a better idea of what students want in the way of cultural events, a survey is being prepared and will be distributed in tiie near future.

It was decided that the committee would not meet on a regular basis, but only when the need arose. Claire also re ported that the committee Chairman, Charlie Gottenkieny, wanted the Senate to appoint two new members to the Committee. The Senate then proceeded to appoint Elsie Mason and Mary Abell to the Food Committee. Scott Breckenrlde reported that the Student Life Commit tee had appointed a sUb-com- mittee to look at the future of St. Andrews. This is in con junction with the discussion In the committee about whether Student Life should concern Itself with Immediate problems, or whether the Committee should concern itself with the future of the college.

A class action case means the three students filing | sxilt are doing so not only for them selves but also for all other students attending college in Scotland County who live in dorms and wish to register in Scotland County. The cost of this suit is ex pected to be close to or over $500. When asked where this sum of money was coming Jeff Neill said, “We are having to largely depend on support in the form of contributions from the S.A. community. Since this is a class action case and will af fect the SA students by allow ing them to register to vote here if they so desire, we hope the SA students will contribute most of the money needed. Fac ulty members will also be asked to contribute to this action.” Students and faculty mem bers who wish to contribute to this cause are asked to either place contributions in campus mail or to call Jeff Neill at ext, 273, Janie McLawhorn at ext, - 236 or Rob Williams at ext, 330.- Also, a table will be set up in the student center for collecting additional con tributions.
