Chancellor \^illianis Speaks To Students
May I thank all of you for the marvel
ous cooperation you have given as this
academic term has progressed. It is diffi
cult to realize that one-half of the term
The big question in the minds of all of
us at the beginning of the term was,
what will the reorganization of higher
education in North Carolina mean for
Winston-Salem State University? It is
too early to answer that question. It can
be said, however, that nothing, as of this
date, suggests that the fears expressed
were justified. Everyone, from the Board
of Governors to interested private citi
zens, has expressed interest in the for
ward progress of Winston-Salem State
University. The recommendations to be
presented to the 1973 General Assembly
for funds are quite favorable to our
You have been patient with some in
conveniences caused by the removal of
all overhead wiring and placing of all
campus wires underground. This project
is scheduled to be completed in January,
1973. Contracts have been signed for the
complete renovation of the heating sys
tem. This project will be delayed to some
extent since much of the work cannot
be done while the heating system is in
operation. We are to convert the boiler
system to oil and thereby eliminate a
major problem with pollution.
It was thought that the new auditorium
would be under construction by this
time. Final plans are under review, and
we have reasons to believe that this proj
ect should be out for bids soon.
Efforts are being put forth by many
people to provide additional opportunities
for Winston-Salem State students. The
visible signs of these efforts, such as
capital improvement projects, represent
only one phase of all that is being done.
The curriculum is under constant review,
new funds are being sought to strengthen
and improve the educational opportuni
ties of students, and members of our
faculty are pursuing advanced studies in
all fields covered by our course offerings.
This brief report to you does not cover,
by any means, all of the exciting things
that are going on at W'inston-Salem State.
Other statements will follow from time to
time so that you will be fully informed.

Black College Presidents
Urged To "Speak Out"
Black brothers are getting wasted!
Man, what a waste!
The events which occurred on the
campus of Southern University last
month can not be explained or reasoned
away by any commission. Instead, causes
should be sought in an examination of a
system which finds it necessary to send
armed guards to a university campus.
Surely, there are better ways. It seems
that the people wasted are generally
innocent bystanders and generally black.
To date. Dr. James Cheeks. Howard
University president, has spoken out
most strongly (of college presidents)
against the events which transpired at
Southern. A united effort by black col
lege/university presidents would make
a great impression on those public offi
cials who are so quick to summon the
National Guard. Many presidents prob
ably feel they'd jeopardize their posi.-
tions. On the contrary, we contend that
lOoiitiniuHl on Thrtv)
in the afternoons must participate in one
of the earlier sessions. Further informa

sion's recruitment presentation may be
