Peoples BOARD OF TRUSTEES ANNOUNCE FEE INCREASE The Board of Trustees of the College announced an increase of student fees for the 196S-69 aca demic term following the Jan uary 30. h meeting of the Board. During the 1967 Session of the North Carolina General Assem bly, State Legislators voted to increase the tuition fees for all out-of-state students. Tuition fees are established by the Gen eral Assembly. The out-of-state tuition for students of Winston- Salem State College was in creased by two hundred dollars. Tuition for North Carolina stu dents was not increased. The North Carolina student’s tuition for 1968-69 will continue to be one hundred dollars. The Trustees voted to com bine a number of the fees paid previously by students into one fee under the heading academic fees. This is not an increase of $23.00 as has been interpreted by some. The fees will be used for the same purposes to provide necessary services and equip ment for students. The activity fee remains the same but stu- d. nts voted to inci'ease the Stu dent Council fee from one dollar to two dollars. Students will pay $630.00 for room, board and laundry. With these increases a North Carolina boarding student will pay $1,134.00 per year. A North Carolina day student will pay $304.00 a year and an out-of-state day student will pay $704.00. The increases will amount to $62.00 for the North Carohna boarding student and $262.00 for the out-of-state student. The fee for North Carolina day students will increase $1.00 and $200.00 for the out-of-state day student. Special fees such as practice teaching, graduation, swimming, bowling, late registration, break age and key deposits are not in cluded in the above fees. A student may pay on a monthly basis. Payments are due September 13, October 9, No vember 4, and December 2. The only payment due in January will be second semester fees and tuition. During the second se mester payments are due Jan uary 27, Alarch 3, April 1, and May 1. Over seven hundred parents, relatives and friends were guests of the college family on Sunday, March 31. The occasion was the Sixth Annual Parents’ Day observ ance. Parents’ Day was estab lished in order to give parents and guardians an opportunity to gain a better insight into college life. It is on this day, too, that parents are able to meet the ad ministrative officers and confer with faculty members about the progress of their sons and daughters. The scheduled activities began with registration in Coltrane Hall at 8;00 a.m. followed by the Parents’ Day Convocation at 10 a.m. in Fries Auditorium. Lewis Turner, president of the student body, and Barbara Tuck, Miss Winston-Salem State College, ex tended greetings to the parents. Mrs. James N. Wright responded on behalf of the parents. Re marks were made by President Kenneth R. Williams, who also introduced the speaker. Dr. Isaac Miller, president of Bennett College, was the guest speaker. Dr. Miller pointed out that protest by college students is nothing new. “What is new I about the present protests is the ugly destructive manner which manj’ of them are taking,” he said. "It is understandable that stu dents want to be where the ac tion is, but too many students are acting without conviction and are just conforming to the non-conformers,” he said. Dr. Miller stressed the impor tance of achieving academic ex cellence and personal integrity and urged sustained involve ment after college on the part of students in solving our prob lems and making the world a better place in which to live. Other program participants were Lucille Evans and Ernest Clemons. The college band, con ducted bj- Mr. Robert E. Shep herd, provided the music.
