Director of Developmcntand Vice
President of the college Richard
Dollar feels that the Development
Office is doing a very good job of
raising funds for North Carolina
Wesleyan College.
"We're raising roughly about
$250 thousand more a year now
than prior to 1982," Dollar said.
However, the amount raised in 1985-
86 was less than that raised in 1984-
85, and only one percent more than

stiff sentence
for vandalism
By PAM HARRISON
On Oct. 7, the soccer field of
North Carolina Wesleyan College
was vandalized.
According to Dr. Carleton
McKica, "at approximately 12:30
a.m., Chris Trent drove his car
through the gate to the soccer field
and turned around on the soccer
field, and in turning around, dam
aged the goal. About $680 worth
of damage was done."
There were two other people in
the car with Trent, but apparently,
they were in the car to persuade
him from doing anything harmful.
The Office of Student Life con
ducted and extensive investigation,
however, Trent came to McKita
Thursday evening and confessed.
On Monday, the Judicial Board
held a hearing and gave Trent a
choice of two punishments: 1) sus
pension from the college, for the
remainder of this academic or 2)
be placed on Disciplinary Proba
tion until the day he graduates,
surrender his license plates to the
office of Student Life and only be
allowed to use his car to go homee
for visits through May of 1987,
and serve 750 hours of campus
com-munity service on December
of 1987. He has to make a decision
by this Friday.
As a final comment, David
Jackson, chairman of the Judicial
Board, said, "They all got off a lot
easier than they could have."
Trent is appealing the sentence,
but the result of the appeal was
not known before presstime.
the Development Office raised in
1982-83. The average yearly sum
raised during Dollar's four years at
Wesleyan is $1,167,528. The average
yearly sum minus bequests is
$973,253.
Dollar said, "I think given the
circumstances of the institution, the
staff size, the equipment, and the
budget, the Development Office is
doing a superior job. This in no way
means I am satisfied with the job

Editor's note: In the Sept.
19 issue of The Dccree, Acting
President Stephen Fritz wrote
a column briefly explaining his
plans for North Carolina Wes
leyan. The Decree then inter
viewed Dr. Fritz in a effort to
gather the specific details of
his plan for the college. The
following is a transseription of
the tape-recorded interview:
The Dccree: This interview is
based on the column you wrote for
the last issue of The Decree, what
we want are more specifics. To
start with, in this column you
stated that you "intended to do
whatever is needed to improve the
quality of services offered' to our
strdents, to improve the support of
our academic programs, and to
build on our solid foundation a
college which is determined to
fulfill its mission and purpose."
How do you plan on improving
each aspect?
Fritz: I think the best way to
answer that is we intend to, thro
ugh long range planning, try to be
very deliberate in focusing our ef
forts and our resources on pro
grams and services which will im
prove what we are doing and to
find ways of undertaking projects
that we ought to be doing.
It's a lot of talk about im
proving facilities and other things
that we need to do, such as re
modeling the cafeteria, some sort
of new gymnasium for intramural

someday, a performing arts center,
a lot of physical plans and projects
that we need to do, address the
library and improving its collec
tion, air conditioning the hbrary.
But we can't do them all at
once, so what we will be doing is
developing a plan of action that
