Peace Corps Awarded
National Recognition
A.P., WASHINGTON, D.C.—
— For its volunteer work in
serving community needs, the
St. Andrews’ Peace Corps of
Laurinburg has been named
Citationist in the National
Volunteer Awards program of
toe National Center for Volun
tary Action.
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.
Preliminary screening was
performed by a faculty panel
from C.W. Post CoUegeof Long
Island University, Each Cita
tionist is now a candidate for
one of two $5,000 first-place
awards.
The Citationists’ contribu
tions reflect a trend toward
growing citizen involvement in
community problem-solving
and aid to the handicapped and
disadvantaged.
Final selection of 1971
awards winners will be made by
a panel of five judges;
pie have been killed and ground
troops have been replaced with
devastating B-52 bombings. 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

rectlon of Professor Edwin

pulpit type and the other will
be a large stage for drama and
choral productions. Dean Deck
er said it would take a year
to draw vp definitive plans. Dean
Decker also mentioned that
work on the new snack bar and
bookstore would start the day
school closes for spring vaca
tion.
A member of the winter term
committee then gave a report
on its recent activities. The
Committee is now in the pro
cess of investigating possible
new winter term courses. In
order to aid them in this en
deavor they are obtaining win
ter term catalogs from other
schools on the 4-1-4 program.
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.
Claire Johnston then reported
that the Food Committee had
been discussing the following
issues: 1) Cold sandwiches for
the snack bar; 2) extension of
the drink bar to relieve con
gestion. 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.
The next item of business
was the establishment of an
activity fund for off-campus
students. It was decided that the
sum of $25 be subtracted from
each dorm’s activity fund, and
placed in an activity fund for
off-campus students.
Open hours for the liberal
arts building was then brought

president of Meek dorm. Dean
Decker stated that the new po
licy on the LA hours was that
the doors would be locked at
midnight. Those students al
ready in the LA before mid
night would be allowed to stay.
The Senate meeting this week
was a special meeting called by
Inter-Dormitory President
Scott Breckinridge. The reason
for this meeting was to discuss
with the various senators the
apathy that Mr, Breckin
ridge feels prevails dur
ing Senate meetings. Scott
was of the opinion that many
senators came unprepared for
the meetings and were unwilling

Scotland County’s Superior
Court, the three students made
a class action case, suing the
members of the Board of Elec
tions and the Chief Secretary
in their official capacity. 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.
