On Wednesday afternoon, January
28th, at 2:00 p.m., the Judicial
Committee was convened to hear the
case of Frederick Avery, a college
sophomore in the Drama Department.
Avery's appearance was the result
'of his having allegedly committed
"social infractions." The nature of
these violations concerned: (1)
College students visiting in the
dorm rooms of lower division (high
school) students without permission;
(2) Encouraging a lower division
student in the violation of a
travel regulation; and, (3) En
couraging and supporting a lower di
vision student in the violation of
the regulation regarding drug use.
After deliberating three hours,
the Judicial Committee found Avery
in violation of these regulations.
The committee suspended Avery from
school for the rest of this semes
ter with a provision for automatic
re-acceptance to the School,
Fall semester 1970. Committee mem
bers present for the meeting were
Mr. Pollock, Dean of Drama; Miss Hunt,
drama teacher; Mr. Carlson, academic
dean; Mr. Hyatt, dean of students;
David Wood, SGA president; and
Gary Beach, drama department rep
resentative. President Ward,
usually a member of the committee,
was absent on business in Italy.
In a discussion with Mr. Hyatt,
Essay reporters learned that the
major issue in the decision was the
violation of the regulation regarding
drug use. Although there is no
precedent for appeal from the
Judicial Board, Avery plans to ask
President Ward to reopen the case
when Ward returns.
In stating why he is appealing
Avery said, "I didn't encourage
the use of drugs to anyone. In fact,
I tried to discourage it. I didn't
come to the Judicial Board with a
prepared defense because I had no
idea they would suspend me on such
"It's worse than the police.
The facts do not justify the sentence
they gave me".
Avery didn't bring in any witnesses
to verify his claims in the Judicial
Board meeting. "I thought it would not
be necessary", he said. "They have
nothing to go on." If granted an
appeal he will call in character witnesses.
About the board meeting David Wood
stated, "We did what was best for all
concerned. We took every door which t.
was open to us. We had to consider what
was best for the student and best for
the school. The student has first
priority, of course, but we must con
sider what is best for the school.

Wow! I mean I really dunno
what to say, music lovers'. I mean
wow! Even as I write this I am
listening to the one toughest LP!
I mean it is the bossest album I've
heard in an age!
No doubt you are wondering
which album, which super group I
speak of. Well, it's not a new group
or a new album, but wow, it's time
less, you know? I dunno if you've
ever been into surfing or not but
you probably know that surfing is
more than just the thrill of bal
ancing on a wall of surf - it's a
way of life! I mean that's obvious
because of the way surfing has influ-
(Cont. from page 5)
But it's my way of trying to give you
a part of me. Maybe something good
will come of it.
Sometimes these thoughts come
to me at the worst times, when I can't
get a thing on paper. Or, when I
can't talk. Worse, when there
is no one to talk to. Sometimes I
get so wasted by my own daily work/
love/social trials that nothing makes
sense. It's in those chilly moments
that we need each other most.
This decade is scary. Our lives
depend on the decisions and actions
of the next ten years. We are the
children of'the future and we have
to stick together. You can be in my
universe if I can be in yours. "Hey
Jude, don't make it bad/take a sad
song and make it.better." Let's
The structure of the Judicial
Board may be a point in Avery's
favor when he seeks his appeal.
Constructed more like a military
court martial board than a
civilian court, the Board is forced
to perform the functions of judge,
jury, and prosecutor all in one.
Also in favor of Avery's appeal
was that the Judicial Committee's
decision was not unanimous.
"The S.G.A. is in the process
of writing a constitution now,
which will include revising the
judicial system of the school,"
Gary Beach told Essay reporters.
"The school has never had a con
stitution, you know, so the student
government had to improvise a little
when they formed these Committees."
As it stands now the school
has two boards; the Review Board for
minor infractions, and the Judicial
Board for alleged offences which may
result in suspension or expulsion
of a student.
enced our own teen culture. It's
given us bitchen, new styles in
clothing, a kooky, new jargon - and
I mean this is what this review is
all about, a new kind of music that
we teens can call our own.
You don't have to be a surfer
to know that rhythm, that sound. If
you don't know it, then just give
a listen to what's pounding out of
the grooves of this record —The
Szcpfing Scene by The Market ts. In
1963 it was my first album and now
in 1970 I want to share it with all
The Marketts set the" pattern
for surfing music (and how!) with
their recording of Surfer's Stompj
which is featured on side one of
this album. The rhythm of their
other songs, e.g., Stompede^ Here
Come The Ho-DadSj and Stompin'
Room Onlifj captures the thrill of
beating the "curl" and "bangin'
ten" and turns it into kicky,
dance music. Wow! I mean I really
grooved on doing the mashed potato
to Stompi Look, and Listen. Even
now, it's got a beat that just
won't quit. Oh wow! It's playing
now and I've kicked off my thongs to
tap my feet to that beat. Tappetty
tap. Tappetty tap. You know, I
listen to it every night while I set
my hair with Dippity-Do on beer
cans and spoolies.
Well, if you'd ever seen the
Marketts live you'd know what I
mean. I mean, they are too tough
for words as they strum. They do
a whole stomp thing as they play-
out of step only if they stop to
push their blond bangs off their
foreheads. (Actually, that's not
real tough because they have
zits but, wow, I really identified
with those zits!) Their suntans
are so neat - wow! When I think of
their fantastic bod's I could just
wipe-out and give myself a hickey!
Well, what more can I say? I
really hope this has cued you in to
a sound that is still as fresh as
a crisp, green wave even though the
record's out of print, I mean, wow,
kids, I'll lend you my copy so that
you can join the surfing scene with
The Marketts - the greatest group
ever...well, wow, I mean I dunno,
maybe the Monkees or the Archies
live at Kernersville
