To Discuss Needed Action
The car above has brought Inquiries as to whether or not
Laurinburg police are on campus. They are not. This is the
new car that the security officers have obtained, replacing the

answered question at this point is whether the blue light works
or is merely ornamental.

Tuesday to meet the towns
people and discuss the issues
in his campaign for governor
of North Carolina. Wednesday
morning Mr. Bowles met with
reporters and discussed some
of these issues with them. Se

against coUege students being
able to register to vote in the
counties in which they go to
school. He said instead that he

that the present absentee bal
lot system needed drastic re
vision.
On the subject of the state
aid to private colleges. Sena

aid should be determined by
the number of North Carolina
residents attending the schools.

money that is spent on busmg
could be spent on improvmg
the present school system.
Mr. Bowles said that he had
been "working for pollution con
trol legislation in the state
legislature, and would continue
to do so. He said that in the
last session of the legislature
he had proposed an amendment

What is PIRG?
NORTH CAROLINA PUBLIC
INTEREST RESEARCH GROUP
Professional sclentsts, en-
V i r onmentallsts, ecomonists,
sociologists, and lawyers em
ployed by you to represent your
Interests as a student and a
CMisumer. PIRG offers students
a more sophisticated and ef
fective medium for attacking
abuses of your environmental
rights (to clean air and water),
consumer rights (to safe pro
ducts, fair pricing and adver
tising), and your personal ri^ts
(to non-dlscriminatory hiring
practices,etc). PIRG will be
listening to university students
and community citizens, re
searching specific interests and
concerns for the entire area,
and taking legal action when
necessary to solve these pro
blems. PIRGs now exist at the
Universities of Oregon and Min
nesota.
Why PIRG?
Sit-ins, picketing, mass de
monstrations, and petitions all
serve their purpose in creating
public awareness of the basic
problems facing this society.
However, many times these ef
forts are only of temporary
value. Also, student efforts are
typically sporadic, interrupted
by exam periods, term papers,
and vacations. In order to ef
fect more permanent reform,
new means must be found. N.
C. PIRG proposes to establish
a s t at e-wide- student-control
led organization which should
employ a full-time professional
staff. Through the expert gui
dance and continuous effort of
these professionals, students
can achieve the reforms which
they have clamored for over
the last decade. With the help
of students, these lawyers, eco
nomists, environmentalists,
and other professionals can
provide the research and do
cumentation necessary to chal
lenge both business and govern
ment agencies on issues of en
vironmental preservation, con
sumer protection, and race and
sex discrimination.
Who Is PIRG?
PIRG is you — control of
PIRG rests in the hands of
North Carolina students, and
the issues on which this staff
works will be decided by stu
dents. Each campus will elect
a local board which will serve
as a clearing house for sug
gestions and complaints. From
there, the issues to be re
searched will be sent for final
approval to a student State
Board of Directors who will
assign your issues to a pro
fessional staff member. Stu
dents wiU comprise research
teams supervised by the pro-
fesslonals. The professional
staff wUl be the action arm
of PIRG. They will use the
techniques of research, pub
lic education, and legal action
to effect reforms in the in
terest of the public of North
Carolina,
How PIRG?
PRIG prt^oses that each stu
dent assess him/herself $1.50
per semester to provide the
stable financial base needed
to hire the professional staff.
Through a petition, apr(H)Osal
for the formation of PIRG will
be submittted to the Board of
Trustees of St. Andrews Col
lege, requesting that St. An
drews serve as a collecting
agent for PIRG. Any student
who so wishes may obtain a
refund of his $1,50 during the
third week of each semester
at an easily accessible loca
tion on campus.

The idea of NC-PIRG was
brought to St. Andrews on Feb
ruary 2nd, by Mr. DonaldRoss,
affiliate of Ralph Nader and
author of the book “Action for
a Change,” and Mr. Bob Bea-
son, a St. Andrews graduate
and former “Nader’s Raider,”
now in law school at UNC-Cha-
pel Hill. Mr. Ross explained
the PIRG concept is STMS class
that morning, and also in Mr.
Schulz’s International Politics
class. He also talked awhile
with students at the College
Union before leaving to catch
his flight back to Washington.
PIRG has already passed at
Duke, Meredith, Peace,
Greensboro, and Chapel Hill.
The movement is under way
at Wake Forest, Elon, Lenoir
Rhyne, and Chowan. Once St.
Andrews establishes PIRG, it
needs to send people out to
start the movement at Pem
broke, UTJC-Wilmington, and at
East Carolina. It is soon to be
a state-wide organization.
A PIRG group is forming
