SGA President Discusses
Desegregation With HEW
By Kathy Wiley
The Department of Health,
Education and Welfare,
(HEW) in 1970 notified,
several states, including North
Carolina, that they were
violating the constitution of
the United States and Title VI
of the Civil Rights of 1964, by
continuing to operate racially
segregated systems of higher
education. In 1973, enforce
ment proceedings were in
stituted against any state
which did not submit an ac
ceptable desegregation plan.
The North Carolina University
(UNC) system has yet to
negotiate an agreement with
HEW.
Student government
presidents from all North
Carolina schools, and other
prominent people were invited
to Washington, D.C. to
discuss the issue. Mr. Bobby
Bennett, President of the Stu
dent Government Association
(SGA) of Winston-Salem State
WSSU Police
Cfiptures Man
By Faye Vemon
The Winston-Salem State
University campus police re
cently captured a 31-year old
Winston-Salem man for al
legedly exposing himself in
decently. Following a high
speed chase, the campus po
lice, filed a complaint to the
Winston-Salem City police
charging Wayne Leroy Couser
of 818 Pitt Street with indecent
exposure and exceeding a safe
speed limit.
According to WSSU security
officer William Wright, a call
was received by his office at
approxiamtely 5:40 a.m., Feb
ruary 17, from Dillard Hall.
Wright said that the caller
complained that “a man was
standing outside the dorm
with his pants down.”
At least four witnesses
have identified Couser as the
man seen outside of Dillard
Hall.
Umversity went to
Washington in January to
voice his position. A substan
tial number of potential
witnesses for HEW were in
vited to this meeting in
preparation for the hearing to
be scheduled for this summer.
Bennett’s deposition was
taken by Mr. Ken Gross of the
General Council for HEW,
out of Atlanta. A trip to
Raleigh is also expected in
order to provide UNC with his
(Bennett’s) deposition.
Although Bennett is a
witness for HEW, he is quick
to announce where his loyalty
lies. “Just because I’m a

witness, doesn’t mean l‘m for
them. I was asked whether I
was pro-HEWor UNC . They
looked at me like I was crazy
when 1 said I was
pro-Winston-Salem State.”
HEW'S criteria for ^esgreg-
ation include an increase in
the number of blacks attend
ing traditionally white univer
sities; strengthening the black
institutions by giving them
new resources and programs;
and to eliminate educationally
unnecessary program duplica
tion so that these schools are
both improved in quality and
are more attractive to both
black and white students.
‘‘WSSU”is the only predom
inately black school in the
state with as much as an 11.5
white minority.” acclaimed
Bennett. “If the system is
changed it will go from 90
percent black to 90 percent
white.
HEW plans to withdraw
some $90 million in funds from
the UNC system for failure to
comply with adequate deseg
regation plans. “If they con
tinue to underfund us,” said
Bennett,“how in the hell can
they expect us to grow, buy
land, build, or improve and
buy proper equipment. They
expect us to function better
with less.”
UNC has awarded $40 mil
lion to be devided among
states’ five predominately
black institutions. N.C. State
was given $25 million alone for
a new gym, but only $40
million is provided for five (5)
of the states’ black institu
tions.
Bennett believes that the
future of black institutions lies
in finding education and legis
lators who are more sensitive
to our needs. “We need to get
on things when we have the
power. At least we have a
voice,” concludes the con
cerned SGA President.
Many are concerned about
the fate of black institutionsa.
Electing those who are gen
uinely concerned is of great
importance to a vast majority
of individuals.
Various preparations from
the leaves and roots of the
deadly European nightshade
weed known as beUadonna
are used to counteract pain,
spasm and opium poisoning.
