"To involve students more signif
icantly in the democratic process is
to allow them to live democratically
as students now...The educational
institution cannot survive as a
lofty place where abstractions re
sound and experience is hallow.
Students are asking to be democrat
ically involved in every phase of
the institution — in the classroom,
in the administration, in the extra
curricular—wherever their lives as
students take them. To improve
communications we should begin at
home, then seek a democratic medium.
The hour is late. For us to ignore
this opportunity for giving students
a real and lasting educational ex
perience would be a mistake, per
haps one of our last."
The School of American Ballet

pients of scholarships to the New

LETTER TO THE

details, but will gladly explain
what actually happened to anyone
really interested. I can say this,
simply - the statements made about
me, with the exception of the fact
that I foot-noted Mr. Fragola's
review - were not true. In so
may words, Mr. Fragola called me
a thief - and I can only say to
him with all my heart, and without
anger: I thank you.
After five years of laughter,
devotion, hard work and some
failure, it was going to be very
hard for me to consider leaving
this place. It's sheltered*me
and taught me so much for so long
that I was beginning to wonder how
I'd ever make the break. Now I
know I can.
What recently occured has
hurt a great deal - deep inside

but what matters most is the
The news release tells it all.
As students, we need only know the
"essential facts." We need not
know how our administrators went
about getting what they wanted.

The matter of contention here is
not the competence of ex-dean Carlson,
but the underhanded tactics which
were used to replace him. He was
a man who seemed to care about the
students (as a footnote, he spoke
to - and seemed sympathetic toward -
a group of students who were active
in the Moratoriums). But apparently
he was not the kind of administrator
who fit into the scheme of things
around here. Carlson seemed to be
an honest man.
For those who insist on talking
about incompetence, there are
those who are citing the rejected
lower-middle-upper division plan
as Carlson's. Sorry, but credit
for that bomb belongs elsewhere.
Carlson has made a statement.
He told the Sentinel: "I put two
years of hard work at that school.
I felt frustrated many times when
I suggested plans for a unified
student body (does that tell you
anything) and for the excellence of
These dancers were selected

valuable lesson I learned: the
value of a strength to endure the
harsh realities of life. The
question; is not what a man can
scorn, or disparage, or find
fault with, but what he can love,
and value and appreciate. It's
easy to be bitter, but it's hard
to have the strength to endure that
bitterness, still seeing a lesson -
a beautiful lesson - to be learned.
The strings are cut now. I
feel free to leave when I graduate
this Spring, and not look back.
Someone once said: "Success is to
be measured not so much by the
position that one has reached in life
as by the obstacles he has overcome
while trying to succeed." Either
way I measure it now I feel con
fidence. I can face the harsh
realities easier now. Though it
was a painful lesson - it was a
valuable one - and one which I am
thankful for. DAVID WOQ^:^
the whole program at the school.
He also mentioned lack of faculty
recognition in decision-making;
lack of organization and communi
cation; and a failure to recognize
proper priorities at the school.
Thus, by hiding these facts
from us, the administration
creates rumor, anger, and event
ually, reaction. By being dishonest,
they are proven as such. Certainly,
it seems, that paranoia strikes deep.

full standing ovation at the end of
the program. His final performance
of the Rachmaninoff will be in High
Point on Wednesday, Aprill 22. School
transportation will be available.
Three other concerts were cancelled
because of his trip to Miami.
We strongly urge that all faculty
members and students take the oppor
tunity to hear this concert. It will
be no ordinary one. This concert will
not only be a beautiful example of
NCSA at its best, but an uncommonly
outstanding performance viewed by it
self. It marks the beginning of what
will almost undoubtedly be a promising
and eventful career.
