Hillary Clinton stresses the college student vote
by Traci Latta and Tracey Rawls
Hillary Clinton set forth her
agenda for education and family
values at a round-table discussion
with editors from local college and
university newspapers Tuesday at
North Carolina State University
"The way I see it, my life is half
over..., but you are the ftiture," said
Clinton. According to the Arkan
sas democrat, persons between the
ages of 18 to 24 years have lowest
voter turnout rate. She stressed the
importance of voting among col
lege-age students as it impact the
present as well as the ftiture.
She also addressed the future
of education and women in the
workforce. "Choices may change,
and women will find themselves in
the workplace personally prepared.
These educational choices will
make it possible for women to do
what they need and want to do," the

Clinton said: "Family values need
to have a backbone of economic policy.
The Republican family platform is a
false debate that needs to be supported
with more than just rhetoric.
It’s sad that the Republicans attack
Bill and me, instead of the future,"
If she becomes first lady, Clinton

the role is not gender-specific.

Security responds to student concerns
by Frances Pate
In last week’s issue, there was a
letter to the editor about a Meredith
student’s concerns about security
on campus and an experience she
had dealing with them. In response
to the letter. Chief Dan Shattuck
said he is very concerned about the
bad reports he has received con
cerning “his men” and always tries
to find out what’s going on.
If something “wrong” hap
pens, he said he wants to be the first
to know. Shattuck added that secu
rity officers are well-trained on how
they should conduct themsel ves and
are told what procedures they should
Shattuck said, "It is hard to get
people to do what you want them to
do. Everyone has their own method
of doing things.” He said he would
strive to make sure the security offic
ers did their jobs well, and more im
Responding to the article last week,
Shattuck explained what he thought
the problem was. He said that stu
dents often have to wait a few minutes
for a security officer because there are
only three security officials on cam
pus during after-curfew hours. Ac
cording to Shattuck, one stays in the
gate house, one mans Vann and
Brewer, and the other is responsible
for the “riding rink” parking lot, the
International House, Poteat, Heilman,
and Barefoot. During “peak” times a
guard may be expected to let in five or
six students at different locations and
see them all safely to their dorms.
Shattuck said a security officer,
during these hours, runs a tight sched
ule and can’t afford to wait at one
particular door. Shattuck said five
minutes is a reasonable amount of
time for a student to be expected to
get from her car to her dorm, give or
take a couple of minutes. If a student
is late getting to the dorm, the security
person is forced to leave another stu
dent waiting elsewhere. “Unfortu
nately,” Shattuck said “We can’t be
everywhere at all times."
In response to security escorts
from parking lots, Shattuck said a
student waiting for an escort should
wait in their car for a few minutes,
with their headlights on, and security
will come. Because the “liability is
too great,” Shattuck said students can
not be carried to or from their dorms.
Shattuck and his staff are doing
their best, but we “girls are going to
