ALL THE NEWS THAT’S FIT TO PRINT . . . BUT ISN’T
ELON COLLEGE —AN S.G.A. PUBLICATION
VOL. I FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1972
Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are!
For the past few weeks, the fe
male population of Elon College
has been the victim of a peeplng-
Tom, appropriately called the
“Peter-Man” because of various
acts he indulges in. There have
been several speculations as to
the identity of our mysterious visi
tor. It is known that he is white,
has dark hair, and is fairly tall.
As the school year opened, our
mysterious visitor made several
brief appearances without any
serious consequences. However,
his appearances have become
bolder in nature, and he is seen
regularly on the 3rd floor of Carl
ton. The several attempts which
were made at his capture proved
futile, as he continually eludes fol-
on Friday, October 13th, when he
On the seventeenth of October
the Student Senate met in the
Senate Chambers to discuss six
related bills all authorized by
S.G.A. President Jim Denton. He
and Rexanne Bishop were invited
by the Board of Trustees to attend
the annual fall meeting of 1972 on
Wednesday, October 18th. Our
meeting was scheduled to discuss
bills proposed to revise rules and
regulations at Elon.
The following bills were passed
1. A resolution to reform the Elon
College Student Honor System.
2. A resolution to assure that all
students have the right to an Honor
Court Trial when accused of a
violation of the College Handbook.
As it now stands students are
not legally entitled to an Honor
Court hearing. The Administrative
Hearing Committee presides over
the accused and usually “pro
nounces sentence.” With this reso
lution a student accused of a crime
may request a hearing.
3. A resolution to reform the Off-
Campus Housing requirements.
This would enable a student to
live off campus if he or she has
completed 54 hours of degree
credit prior to the registration date
of the academic semester for which
they choose to reside off campus,
or be 20 years of age prior to the
first day of registration of the aca
demic semester. All paperwork
would have to be completed at
least 60 days prior to the registra-
lowers. His latest appearance was
slit through two screens, allowing
him to place his hand(s) on the
inside blinds in order to observe
a girl showering. Upon seeing this,
the girl ran out, crying hysterically.
Proper steps were taken but, once
again, our “friend” eluded detec
Several questions can now be
asked: Where were the security
guards who are supposed to patrol
the grounds? What steps are be
ing taken to insure the safety of
women dorm students? I think that
we, the students of Elon, deserve
to be protected from our phantom
friend. Granted, nothing serious
has happened yet, but must some
act of violence occur before proper
protection is secured for us?
tion date of said academic semes
4. A resolution to appoint out
going S.G.A. Presidents to the
Board of Trustees.
This resolution proposes that
Student Government Presidents,
upon graduation, serve a two year
term as a voting member of the
Board of Trustees.
As it now stands, anyone who
graduates in the top ten of his
senior class is elected to the Board
by his classmates for a term of two
years. This resolution gives the
outgoing President, our directly
elected official, an active partici
pation in Elon College affairs.
5. A resolution to make amends
for the unforseeable overcrowding
of dormitory rooms.
This resolution entitles a student
with two other roommates to qualify
for a “late off-campus” housing
6. A resolution to reform the
drinking laws of the Elon College
This resolution would allow stu
dents to drink but would hold stu
dents liable to the S.G.A. and the
Board of Trustees if they disrupt
These resolutions are to be pre
sented to the Board of Trustees
and their appropriate Committees
for their “immediate and serious
consideration” in its annual fall
meeting of 1972.
There are many questions to be
answered, but allow me to make a
suggestion. A tighter security force
should be instituted to patrol the
dorm areas, and a closer watch
on Carlton, as it appears to be a
haven for our mysterious friend.
These steps may not aid in the
capture of “Peter-Man,” but it will
make it easier for the women dorm
students to sleep at night. It is a
frightening experience to suddenly
wake up and see a strange face
staring at you. Try it sometime. I
guarantee, you won’t like it.
Elon is well-known throughout
the student body as a school with
out much in the way of entertain
ment. When an effort is made to
bring professional entertainment to
the campus student response, on
the whole, is usually pretty good.
This response is sometimes divided
in that one group seems to be
more popular than another, as was
the case with Stevie Wonder and
Black Oak Arkansas. It seemed to
be somewhat fashionable to prefer
Black Oak to Stevie Wonder, and
the student response reflects this
ridiculous line of thinking. Friday
night Bill Crocker and many other
people worked very hard to bring
a good concert to the student body.
Granted, Stevie was one-and-a-half
hours late in arriving, and lots of
students who did go said they
were disappointed. This is sicken
ing. If you are “bored” or disap
pointed” by a concert by one of
the most musically talented, not to
mention handicapped people in
show business, then you show
your ignorance. Stevie Wonder was
good, even though only half the
people sat through the wait to hear
him. Also, maybe a little explaining
needs to be done. Elon is a small
school which will present the per
formers with a small audience,
thereby reducing his enthusiasm
to be on time and to present a
good concert. There is nothing to
be done about this aspect of the
situation, but one thing could be
remembered: when placing the
blame for a late concert, look to
who is really responsible instead
of automatically blaming Elon.
Stevie Wonder was late due lo
some “unexplainable reason,” not
because the SGA or Elon has done
a poor job. Please remember that.
On October 18, 1972, the Elon
College Communicator announced
that “Dr. J. Earl Danieley, Presi
dent of Elon College since July 1,
1957 . . . will retire from the office
on June 30, (1973) upon the com
pletion of sixteen years of service
This news release came not only
as a surprisse to the Editor and
staff of the Broadside Today but to
the entire administration, faculty
and staff of Elon College.
It also appears that sensible
comment concerning the situation
at hand is totally impossible, simply
because no one knows whether
the resignation will be a step for
ward or backward for Elon College.
Therefore, I, as an individual,
can only express my own personal
opinion in the hope that Dr. Dan-
ieley’s decision was made in good
faith and in the best interests of
More developments and opinions
concerning the resignation of the
President will hopefully be avail
able in next week's issue. Stu
dents, faculty and staff are whole
heartedly invited to express their
opinions on the subject, directing
them to the Editor, Box 3444.
