November 24, 1969 The N.C. Essay
as we see it
AN EDITORIAL IN TWO PARTS
Recently the N.C. Essay has been
the topic of conversation among many
student and faculty. What is the
paper trying to do and what kind of
policy does the paper have? We, as
the staff of the Essay, feel that
this discussion and questioning is
good. People are reading the paper,
becoming aware of existing problems,
but most important becoming aware of
the importance of the newspaper.
We, too, are asking ourselves
questions and are formulating and
reworking policy. Though a policy
is necessary, we also feel that a
certain amount of flexibility is
desirable. As our school is flex
ible, so should the Essay be flex
Are we a school paper or a
student paper? As a staff, we feel
that such a "cut and dry" dis
tinction is unnecessary and in many
ways limiting. The Essay is a
paper, organized and completely
staffed by students in order to
serve our school community. We
realize that in the past we may
not have given as much coverage to
faculty and administration as we
have to student views in our attempt
to become as well-balanced and as
honest as possible. We will
endeavor to solicit more faculty
and staff views on various issues.
We will continue to welcome con
structive criticism either directly
or through letters to the editor.

There was never an issue regarding
attendance at convocations, although
there may later be an area of selection.
Dr. Baskin has the questionnaires con
cerning types of convocations. Al
though only about twenty-five question
naires were turned in, they will be
How should students arrange
meetings with their S.G.A. represen
S.G.A. residential unit
representatives can call house meet
ings, but students should approach
the S.G.A. instead of waiting for
it to approach them.
Is lack of knowledge of
events due to lack of information
or disregard of information? For
instance, why is the attendance at
this meeting so poor?
Artistic people seem to be
more involved in themselves and
their art than in their surround
ings. But the idea of what an
artist is necessitates his knowing
what is happening around him.
A key point may be to get
different groups together at diff
erent times to discuss informally
the school and related issues.
The Student-Administrati on for
um meets each Wednesday after convo
cation. It was organized to give stu
dents a chance to ask questions of the •
Administration about the school.
T.V. CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
(Cont. from page 2)
have a chance to grow up.
Suddenly, I had second thoughts
about what Christmas was and about
the magic. Death was seemingly more
realistic. It struck without thought
for age, race or creed. How could
I talk about magic? About the won
derfulness of childhood any more?
But I guess the answer is this.
Because death is a real presence in
this world, magic must be too.
Don't you see, it has to be. Other
wise we'd have no happiness, no joy,
no tomorrow. So our special became
just a little more special. And
Robert Gerry became our little boy,
Johnny. He's just beautiful in the

At the very beginning of the
show, super-imposed on the screen,
will be these words: To the loving
memory of Robert Davis, age 8, his
friends at the North Carolina School
of the Arts dedicate this show.
Suddenly, the magic is back
again, and even stronger than before.
