Do you think “Jim Shorts” would be kinky enough? * * nr It: tti Want to renew your faith in the St. Andrews faculty? If so, continue reading. A certain student on campus whose father is an unannounced candidate for the presidency of the United States wanted to spend January campaigning for him. He went to the Politics department to see about getting it as an Independent studies in American Politics. Know what they told him? It would not be politically significant. Can youbelieve, they are paid moeny to think like that. * ♦ * * ♦ This semester has been pretty significant for most of us here. I mean when most of the student body at a college can be from a foreign country and married without knowing about It, It takes some doing. Course I never trusted computers anyway. The one here married me and I din’t even get to go on the honeymoon. Drat the luck. * * * * ♦ I am nowl ready to get Involved in big time politics. I am the student leader for the campaign of the illustrious Senator from Hawaii. Remember; You can’t go wrong With Hiram Fong. * * * ♦ * And don’t forget the big mistake of slxty-elgjit. BY HUNTER WATSON It’s amazing how some of the students spend some of their time on this campus. It would seem that a more constructive action could have taken place than a fireworks war. The amount of time and money wast ed could have undoubtedly been directed into a more fruitful cause. But causes are not con- sidered to be important any more. Causes are out of it. The word “cause” has taken a seat with “relevant” and Is no longer needed. “Racism” too is overused and out of it, but it stUl exists. The need for causes still exists whether we want to admit it or not. The perhaps $200 spent on fireworks could have been do nated to the Pakistani refugee fund, but some people are even regretting that they participated in the fast. The fact remains that $2000 was raised in that event and that 6,000 people will have food, she Iter, and med icinal aid for one month. This one campus has done all this and we must realize that no matter what the intentions, good has resulted from what was done. The man hours that could have been used in helping to fix dilapidated buildings of some of the people in town were completely wasted on needless steam. Of course we’re frustrated, particularly at this time in the school year, but when so much can be done and we choose not to do It, things will continue as they are. It makes no real difference to us in this instance. The only people who have been slighted are those that could have been helped by our efforts. Are we appealing to morals? Yes, I guess we are. But what's so wrong with being moral. What happened after the af termath? Was anyone willing to clean 15) the mess they made? Of course not. We “Intellec tuals” think it degrading to evpn consider manual labor. Maintenance is there for that. We fail to realize that those people (yes, people) are just as good as us and we continue to call them “rednecks” and “grits”. These people are the backbone of this society and we respond to that by calling them the “scum of the earth.” Don’t forget that they have pride as anyone else. Why is it so de grading to do their kind of job? Are we afraid to get our hands dirty? Does our intellectual work on this campus make us more human? We must struggle against the prejudices which we have and get down off our cushioned ped estals and come to grips with ourselves. To call ourselves “liberals” and condemn racism and then turn right around and call these pec^le “rednecks” is nothing but hypocrisy. Frustrations need to get out but we must look at other chan nels for expression andnotfor- get the positions of other peo ple in this society. Senate Apathy Is Not Acceptable Though It Reflects Student Body BY JEFFREY NEILL The Inter-dorm Senate has been described by its Presi dent, Scott Breckinridge as be ing apathetic. Whether this term actually applies or not is not the case at hand. The senate, to students, seems apathetic. And Energy Release Produces Break BY KATHY KEARNEY What do you do to have fun and release energy on a bour geois college campus way out in the middle of nowhere? Tues day ni^t’s fireworks freak out ottered a welcome alternative to the usual lethargy and mono tony of St. Andrews. Upon hear ing the noise (and after wonder ing for an instant if the pigs had finally come to do us all in) I looked out my window to see many delightfully clandestlne- looking figures having a great time exploding firecrackers in front of Granville. A familiar voice rang out calling for more matches and the troc^ slowly made its way to the quadrangle. Since fireworks are Illegal in North Carolina I was amused with visions of how the St. An drews Security Force was en joying the show, but even more amusing was the thought of them attempting to move in and stop it. The participants should be ^plauded for breaking the us ual deadening calm and bringing a little life and energy to the campus. Mr. Breckinridge not only feels the term applies but has stated before the Senate and to private sources that he may be forced to resign should the senate not become the active, responsible, creative force that it is sup pose to be. But perhaps Mr. Breckinridge is being too harsh on the senate. After all, the senate is comprised of students and as such seems to reflect the apathy found in most SA students toward this community quite well. The fiict the over whelming majority of senators are apathetic is not surpris ing then. What is surprising is the activism of four or five senators who appear to be the ones responsible for whatever debate and creativity that oc- cures within the senate. Still it must be remembered those who are Senators are such because they actively sought the positions of Presi dent or Vice-president of their dorms. No one was forced to fakp office. And when they ac cepted the office they also ac cepted the responsibility that the office entailed. Should individual Senators be unwilling or Incapable of ac cepting the responsibility of their positions in student gov- ernment then perhaps Mr, Breckinridge should ask for their resignation prior to de ciding upon his own. Contributors; ROD BROWN RON BAYES SCOTT BRECKINRIDGE GARY MALLARD HUNTER WATSON LIGON PERROW JIM POPE Guerillas Fight Battle Though Ideology Unclear BY MARSHALL GRAVE LY The Revolution has come to St. Andrews—it arrived Tues day night. Small groips of guer rillas were seen roving about the campus and numerous fire- fights were heard. Several bursts of automatic weapons fire were heard in exchanges between strongholds in Meek and W-S. The guerillas also had larger weapons and even used mortars. The attack raged between Meek and W-S with skirmishes around The Mountain and scat tered fitting elsewhere. Hi^ points in the fluting were the intrusions of neutral oibservers led by campus mediator Dean Decker. Sources were quoted as say ing that these guerrillas were were sn>plled by a number of outside a^tators—namelyfire- works dealers In several states. Battle scars remained through Wednesday in the form of black ened and littered sidewalks. No casualties were incurred but some of the guerrillas were reportedly arrested and carted away to face trial by a jury of their deafened fellow students. The future of the guerrillas movement is uncertain. The campus remains tense with the threat of renewed fitting, and activity is certain to resume following Christmasbreakwhen the agitators will be able to resi5)ply their forces. The Ideology of the guerril las is at this time unclear. There Is no revolutionary ma terial liv circulation to explain a sudden outbreak of hosti lities, so it must be a spon- t a n e ous rev olution—which is always the best kind.
