Six women employes, se lected from an initial group of 15 applicants, are now "up grading" in special secretarial training classes. Part of an overall employe group taking under Duke's new Affirmative Action Plan, they are acquiring skills to become clerk-typists while continuing in their present jobs. Upon successful completion of the six-week course, the six will be eligible to receive clerk-typist ratings and appro priate increases in their pay. Ed Bennett, assistant direct tor of personnel, says Duke's Affirmative Action Plan is aimed at upgrading as many employes as possible through out the University. "We want all Duke em ployes to have the chance to develop and improve their skills in line with their own capabilities and the training opportunities that may be pre sented," he said.

The six employes in the cur rent secretarial program have a combined total of over 35 years' service at Duke. Peggy Brandon, a high school graduate with two years of college work completed at North Carolina Central Univer sity, has been at Duke longer than any of her fellow train ees -- 15 years.

Another with long service is Myrtle Washington. She claims "eleven years on the payroll and a long time as foreman of the dishwashing machine operation in the main campus dining hall."

On racial discrimination: "The black man is better off now, too. There is no discri mination," Wallace adds, "ex cept as one Cuban puts it: "Black is not beautiful here. That's a different revolution. We have our own.' " On Soviet influence: "The Russian community there numbers between five and ten thousand.

On the attitude of Cubans toward the United States: "Warn and friendly," says Wallace. "It seems that almost all of them have some member of their family here," he adds. "But an inkling of how their government feels about ours can be gleaned from the fact that the "X" in the name of Nixon in all the Cuban news papers has been replaced by the swastika." On the standard of living: The masses are in better shape now than before the Castro takeover. "Electricity, schools and hospitals make the dif ference. And the people are making money, too. But there is virtually nothing to spend it on. So, absenteeism and low productivity among the work ers has become a worrisome problem. are Dr. Jesse Marshall, dean lof student affairs and Mrs. Dorothy Jones, assistant direc tor of placement.
