Federal Agencies Sponsor
Talent Search for Seniors
March 5, 1970
NUMBER 14
“Federal employees
today are in the vanguard
of the most interesting
and challenging projects
which mankind has ever
undertaken — in the hu
manities as well as in the
sciences.”
This, basically, is the
message which U. S. Gov
ernment job consultants
will be bringing to the
North Carolina A & T
State University on March
9 and 10, 1970, and to the
University of North Caro
lina at Greensboro cam
pus on March 11 and 12,
1970, as part of the “Fed
eral Agencies Combined
Talent Search” — an ex
perimental effort in joint
recruiting by a number of
Federal organizations to
be held at only 30 coll
eges nationally this year.
The program is designed
to give students a quick,
convenient, but thorough
look at the array of ca
reer opportunities avail
able within the Federal
Government.
The Federal Service
Entrance Examination
(FSEE) is a written test
for graduating students to
qualify for Federal ca
reers in such profession
al fields as personnel,
general administration,
econom ics, social
sciences, procurement
and supply, investigation,
etc. This examination is
used to fill over 200 kinds
of Federal jobs in over 50
different agencies.
If the student’s major
is in a specialty like
mathematics, accounting,
engineering, or some
similar field, the FSEE
test is not required.
Students will learn, in
talking with Federal em
ployer representatives
and from literature in the
Placement Office, that the
U. S. Government offers
a lot more in addition to
the great variety of ca
reer possibilities and job
locations. The starting
pay is good, and the pay
structure, compares fav
orably with private in
dustry. Promotions and
opportunities for partici
pating in the management
of important programs
come quickly to those who
bring energy and im
agination to their Federal

The Day’s End.
Campus Group to Cut Record
By ED BAKER
After four trips to New
York and long, hot days of
walking the endless miles
of cement, they sang “it
worries my soul cause 1
got no place to go and I'm
dying.'
“I knew we had an ori
ginal style,” insisted
Billy Robey. “The pro
blem was trying to find
someone to listen to us.”
“Yea,” said Bod Nou-
barian. “Have you ever
tried to sell yourself?”
But the break final
ly came when they entered
Hollybrooke Int. Since
then the Day's End have
closed deals with RCA,
Bell, and Columbia re
cording companies. Hol
lybrooke, their produc
ers, will select the best
deal and then they will
begin weekend trips to

Elon College Presi
dent, Dr. J. Earl Daniel
ey, will participate in an
International Higher Edu
cation Seminar during the
month of March.
The seminar is spon
sored by the Comparative
Education Society and Phi
Delta Kappa, an honorary
education fraternity, un
der the supervision of Dr.
Gerald Reid of Kent State
University. Approxi
mately 100 college presi
dents, professors, and
trustees from throughout
the United States will at
tend the seminar.
The globe circling tour
will include visits to
Switzerland, Russia,
Turkey, Lebanon, Thai
land, Hong Kong, and Ja
pan. The group will attend
lectures on higher educa
tion in colleges and uni
versities in the major
cities to be visited. A
highlight of the trip will

New York to record.
According to Robey and
Noubarian, spokesmen
for the group, they will
record their first single,
tentatively “Georgian-
na”, within the next
month. It will be releas
ed nationwide two weeks
later and quickly followed
by their first album. In
the late spring they will
appear on the Della Reese
television show and on the
late - night shows during
the summer.
The four juniors, Dave
Bullard, Fayetteville,
N. C.; Donnie Falk,
Hampton, Va.; Bod Nou
barian, Niagra Falls,
N.Y.; and Billy Robey,
Washington, D. C.; met at
Elon three years ago by
a quirk of fate.
It’s because of Elon
that we have developed
our own original style,”
claims Robey. “We can’t
get records by other
groups like us in the lo
cal stores, and the radio
plays mostly soul. “I’m
really sorry that the peo
ple down here don’t ap
preciate our music.”
Donnie: I don’t under
stand people in the
South. They hate “nig
gers” and then pay $5
to see the Tams and the
Showmen.
