Stray Dogs Create Controversy
The recent removal of two
dogs from campus has
sparked much controversy
and debate. The humanitonan
and legal aspects of this action
are questionable. Concemig
the legality of dogs on cam
pus, a memorandum from
President Hart on October 31,
1973 specifically states:
“Dogs, cats and other pets
necessarily must be excluded
from academic buildings,
service buildings, dormi
tories, and other cam
pus facilities that are open to
students, faculty, staff, and/or
the public. This requires also

through the generosity of the

and under the auspices of the

The public is cordially in
vited and welcome to Dr.
Zlotowitz’s Sunday evening
that animals be excluded from
any parts of the campus where
their presence would facilitate
their entrance to buildings.
Resident or non-resident per
sons who own pets and have
them on the campus will have
until Monday, November 10, to
remove tham permanently
from the campus. Beginning
on November 10 authorized
persons will pick up any
animals that remain or that
appear thereafter on the cam
The facts of the incident in
question are as follows: On
Thursday, April 18,1974, Dan
Salzler, Director of the
College Union, procurred a
van and a student assistant to
pick up two black hounds
which had been repeatedly
seen on campus. A student
reported seeing Salzler’s
assistant pick up the two dogs,
identified as Flappy and Elsie
at approximately 3:30p. m. on
the same day. Flappy is a thir
teen year old dog owned by
Professor Ludlow. Salzler con
firmed this report and stated
that he took and dropped the
two dogs on a farm one mile
from downtown Gibson.
Salzler had the following ex
planation for his actions. He
had received innumerable
complaints from various
people concerning dogs on
campus. In the last two mon
ths, the Board of Health repor
ted the presence of animals
within the dorms. The presen
ce of these animals is in
violation with the health rules
and could result in the closing
of the dorms. Another source
of complaint come from Mr.
Hendrix of Maintenance. The
janitorial staff was tired of
cleaning up the “messes” left
by the dogs, according to
Salzler. A third area of com
plaint was over the presence
of dogs in the cafeteria.
Salzler said that Dewey Hum
phries, Epicure Manager, had
complained because of the
fact that if a dog is found
anywhere within the Student
Union building the cafeteria
could be instantly closed down
due to health reasons. Salzler
said that students had also
complained to him because
they were tired of being
bothered by dogs while they
were eating their meals, were
in their dormitories, or were
in the L. A.
Salzler said that the Kennel
Club, of which he is advisor,
had been set up to eliminate
the problem of stray dogs as
well as to teach students about
animal care. He denied the
allegation that the Kennel
Club was the chief cause of
more dogs on campus. Ac
cording to Salzler the dogs are
allowed to run only in the
woods and are governed by
stringent rules approved by
However, Salzler was
awared of certain dogs on
campus which were not in ken-

Senate Approves Plan
The Senate approved a plan
to promote the buying and
selling of used books at St. An
drews. Several plans were
considered but the finalized
system will work as follows.
About the second week of May
students will receive a list of
books which will be used in the
Fall term. If you have any of
the books on that list and
would like to sell them, you
may advertise in a bulletin
which will come out near the
end of the term. The exact
date of the bulletin’s
publication and the fee for ad
vertising in it will be specified
on the first list.
Responsibilities for setting
prices will be between buyer
and seller. There will be no
central place for buying and
selling. The bookstore will still
have new texts for those who
don’t want to buy used books.
This process will be repeated
at the beginning of Fall term
for the benefit of freshmen
and will be in operation at the
end of next Winter term.

PIRG made a presentation on
the byssinosis (brown lung)
problem in North Carolina to
the American Lung
Association meeting in Aber
deen April 17. Byssinosis is an
occupational disease of the
textile industry. It is caused
by an agent in cotton dust. The
North Carolina State Board of
Health estimates that at least
15,000 active workers have
byssinosis in this state. Since
the disease causes many
people to stop work, there are
probably many more
byssinotics who are retired.
Only 41 people have ever ap
plied for workmen’s com
pensation for this disease.
PIRG presented data to the
ALA which it thinks is per
tinent to the lack of com
pensation claims. SA-PIRG
has interviewed all of the
Laurinburg general prac-
ticioners and has found that
three of the seven didn’t know
the disease is compensable.
The remaining four cited
various problems in applying
for workman’s compensation.
PIRG proposed plans for
disseminating information to
physicians throughout the
state about the byssinosis
problem. It is thought that one
of the best ways to decrease
the incidence of the disease is
to have an effective work
man’s compensation system.
A committee was formed to
deal with the problem.
A committee was formed to
