On December 14, Greensboro
voters will determine the future
structure of their city
government. At this time city
voters will have the opportunity
to express their disapproval of
the present form of Greensboro
government by voting for Plan
Under Plan B Greensboro
i would be divided into 12
districts or wards with each
district electing a city
I councilman. In addition, B
provides for the voters at large
to select the mayor.
The present form of city
governments call for councilmen
to be chosen by the voters at
large. These councilmen in turn
choose the mayor from among
Proponents of Plan B include
such organizations as the
Greensboro Chapter of the
ACLU, the NAACP, the
Greensboro Central Labor
Union, and the Guilford County
Reform Democrats. According
to these organizations, the

Griffin Captivates Audience
By PETE BALLANCE
John Howard Griffin claimed
to be mesmerized by the
audience so he spoke longer than
he had intended. The audience,
in turn, seemed mesmerized by
the guest speaker and remained
noticeably silent throughout.
However it was not hypnotism,
but communication that
produced this effect.
John Griffin speaks to a
sociology class during his visit on
campus last Thursday.
Friday, December 13, 1968
.Northwest section of
staunchly support Plan B, some
well known groups urge voters
to reject the proposal.
Prominent among such bodies
are the Chamber of Commerce,
Junior Chamber of Commerce,
and Greensboro city
government. These opponents of
Plan B generally admit the need
for a more representative form
of city government, but
maintain that Plan B is not the
best possible solution.
The primary contention of
Plan B opponents is the lack of
clarity of the proposal. From
their point of view, the fuzziness
of the plan leaves the role of the
city manager, who in reality
manages the city, in doubt.
However, sponsors of Plan B
pledge to push a bill through the
State Legislature in Raleigh to
clarify the situation.

Series participants were forced
to reconsider their "liberal"
views on blackness. The word
"liberal" itself is an example of
white thinking: it merely
expresses tolerance of something
that is intrisically other.
Mr. Griffin told of his
experience as a black man and of
the profound lesson of that
experience, that racism must be
overcome on both a
philosophical and an emotional
level in order to be fully
overcome. The appeal of Mr.
Griffin lies in the sincerity and
logic of his delivery. He is
extremely sensitive to massive
human tragedy and explains how
many people—good and decent
participating in racism.
Examples of this type of
participation are statements such
as "... but are they ready for
their rights?", and "... but why
don't they try to improve
themselves?". These statements
reflect white thinking, as
opposed to human thinking.
In contrast to the gentle
delivery of Mr. Griffin is the
brutal cruelty of his subject
Guilford College this year is
presenting a unique educational
experience in the New York
seminars. Plans for the second
New York seminar, January
22-29, recently have been
released by Claude Shotts,
director of the programs.
The title of the second
seminar is "Art and
Contemporary Society." Each
student can choose to investigate
and explore the categories of
Drama; Music; or Art and
During the first two days, all
students will be introduced to
the three areas. The remaining
four days will be spent in
discussion and "behind the
scenes" investigation in the
mornings and viewing of plays,
concerts, museums, and other
events in the evenings, with
afternoons reserved for free
Shotts sees this seminar as a
very effective and worthwhile
opportunity, since New York is
so rich in all these areas. He
emphasizes that "In our
fast-changing society, we cannot
afford to wait for history books
to be written. This is why we
will investigate current as well as
classical and traditional forms.
This is a project that 'goes where
the action is'."
He urges that students
interested register as soon as
possible since tickets to the
events have to be reserved in
advance. Also, since the seminar
will be limited to around forty
students, those wishing to take
part are also urged to register
matter. Racism dehumanizes
both the victim and the
practioner. The simple thought
was repeatedly presented to the
audience and successfully
assimilated. The apparent
hypnotism was the force of this
message as communicated by
As a result of Mr. Griffin's
book, he is now afraid for his
life when he travels through
some of our Deep-South states.
This is a different fear, he
explains, than he experienced
while traveling as a black man.
The horror of the situation lies
in the fact that black men in the
Deep-South have to live in fear.
Not only are they not treated as
citizens, they are not even
treated as human beings. The
massive human tragedy caused
by racism precludes his returning
to the Deep-South as a black
man. Mr. Griffin is no longer
involved in data gathering for
sociological studies, as was his
aim before writing "Black Like
Me." His involvement today is
the telling of the story of the
black man, which unfortunately
gains credibility when told by a
