72 GRAD SEEKS ALUMNI TITLE By Milton Wade Who will wear the crown of “Miss Alumni” at Winston-Salem State Uni versity for the year 1972-73? The question, as repeated from year to year, is an interesting one. But this year the contest itself is going to be in teresting. In previous years candidates for the iMiss Alumni competition have always come from classes of years before. But this year one of the contestants brings the competition up to the present. She is Mrs. Marie Johnson Robinson, a 1972 graduate of Winston-Salem State, from Littleton. Mrs. Robinson is com peting with Mrs. Frances Davis Suber of Winston-Salem, a 1947 graduate, and Mrs. Wilhelmina Lawrence Long of At lantic City, N. J., a 1953 graduate. Mrs. Robinson, who is one of the youngest persons to ever compete for the title, says she entered the contest for the purpose of encouraging and inspiring other recent graduates to become involv ed with the Alumni Association. She said that too many students today are graduating without really knowing that there is an alumni association at the school or knowing its purpose. "There is a generation gap which needs to be closed," she said. Miss Alumni is chosen on a basis of the number of points accumulated by the monetary support the candidate receives from other university graduates. Annual alumni membership dues are $15 per year which, when counted, value 1,500 points for the candidate the member E* TO LEARN, DEPART TO SERVE VOL.

Q. — Why has the school stopped pro viding transportation for students to and from the hospitals and to doctor’s ap pointments? A. — The school's infirmary is staffed with only one nurse per shift. If the nurse has to take a student off campus it leaves the office unmanned for any emergencies which might arise.

JOSEPH DANIELS By Willie Mae Mayse “We Cover North Carolina Like the Dew" — Joseph K. Daniels What makes a recruiter tick"’ This is a very interesting question, and I am sure that many Rams have applied this question to Mr. Joseph Daniels, recruiter. He is the man that sits behind the desk in room 331 of Blair Hall. The only problem in locating him will be catching him in. If one can track him down, he will be greeted pleasantly, and privileged students may be fortunate enough to be greeted by one of his witty jokes. As a recruiter he has many duties, A few of these include: (1) Planning, promoting and direct ing activities and programs to locate and identify high school students who are eligible for admission to college. (2) Developing attractive mechanisms that relate student life and academic of fering and services to the public. (3) Participating in high school pro grams relative to college day and other college representative programs. chooses to support. Membership dues, contributions and special projects are the candidate's major means of raising money. Former winners have sponsored dinners, Tom- Thumb Weddings, baby contests or dances as means of getting support. Mrs. Robinson recently sponsored a Cabaret at the Les Arbres Club. While attending State she was an English major and worked as a student with the alumni association. She was also named to Who's Who In American Colleges and Universities. She is presently working as secretary to Dr. June May, director of Teacher Corps. Deadlines of October 27 and Nov. 3 have been set for the contest. Any persons wishing to contribute funds to support Mrs. Robinson. Mrs. Suber or Mrs. Long may send their dues or offerings to the Winston-Salem State University .Alumni Association at the universitv. (4) Co-ordinating all recruitment ac tivities with other departments of the University. (5) Conducting follow-ups on prospec tive students. (6) Performing other administrative duties, relating to the position as they are given by the President. All these and more are some of the many activities that make Daniels' won derful world of recruitment. When talking with him, one of the first questions I asked was "Where are some of the places that you go," and his reply was "anywhere from Dare to Cherokee". "Our slogan is to cover North Carolina like the dew," and believe me he does from dust to dawn. .Among some of the things he enjoys in recruiting, counselling students on career planning ranks close to number one. He locates these places through a state organization. Carolina Association of Collegiate Registrars and .•Admissions Office Scheduling Committee. This or ganization plans and arranges these visits. Some students seem to think that he just happens to bump into some high school after he has gotten lost in no man's land, and he begins recruiting students and finding his way home at the same time! If you would just ask va rious students "Where are you from," you may think that Daniels really does locate students from "no man's land". Some of his methods for finding stu dents are by contacting them directly and indirectly by T"V, radio, news, par ents and relatives, papers, faculty, other students, mail, direct counseling, campus activities and college day programs. Daniels stated that he doesn't look for any specific qualifications in the students other than the minimum re quirements of the institution and observ ing an.xiety during an interview. One of his other techniques is by “giving the institution an average image”. (ConfimuHl on Pnjre KoiuO MRS.
