End Of Struggle
For Bonnie Cone
For Bonnie Cone, yesterday's approval by the North
Carolina House was the last round of a long six-year
battle to help Charlotte College reach university status.
When she became president of the then-struggling
two-year junior college in 1958, she already had her
goals in mind. .

Rick Kramer, a junior from
Chevy Chase, Md., said yesterday
' he would seek re-election as presi

decision "after members of both
political parties, several athletes
and people from all over campus
urged me to run again."

is Joe Churchill, and the Student
Party's nominee is Bob Newland

Bonnie Cone -
Now that the bulldozers are
clearing the land around her
office for the construction of
four new academic buildings
and that the University of North
Carolina at Charlotte is a real
ity, she has even bigger plans
for the school.
Miss Cone, a former high
school math teacher, has been
with Charlotte College since the
school held its meetings at
night in the old Central High
School building in Mecklenburg
Charlotte began in J 146. as an
eastern center of the University
of North Carolina, organized to
accommodate the flood of GI's
returning to school from .World
War II. "The college was
started to meet an emergency,"
said Miss Cone. . "Now it's a
new era.. We are preparing to
take care of the children of
The clear grey eyes of Miss
Cone have seen a lot of growth
take place on the 1,000-acre
campus in North Mecklenburg.
The school has since 1961 doubl
ed its faculty, its " enrollment,"
its curriculum and its facilities.
One example of this growth
is the new 130,000-volume li
brary which recently opened to
replace the small 2,000-book li
brary that Charlotte maintain
ed for so many years.
The president has inspired
the help of a hard-working staff
to assist her. "The attitude of
our faculty and the students
has always been one of com
plete cooperation," she said.
When the announcement was
made on Nov. 18, last year
that the Consolidated Univer
sity trustees had approved the
admittance of Charlotte Col
lege, Miss Cone received a
standing ovation by the college
"We wanted to let Dr. Cone
know that we were 100 per cent
behind her and her efforts in
behalf of the college," said
John Scott, president of the
"We've all been aware of
the possibility that it would
happen for some time now,"
Scott said at that time. "Dr.
Cone deserves a lot of credit
for the work she has done."

Only One 'No ? Vote
RALEIGH (AP) Charlotte College completed its
four-year struggle to become the fourth branch of the
Consolidated University Tuesday when the proposal
was approved by the House. It will be called the Univer
sity of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Mecklenburg legislators hailed it as a great victory
and a landmark in history. "It has been an uphill fight all the
way," said Sen. Martha Evans of Charlotte. "We have never
reached a rung without a struggle. There has never been any
thing given to us."
The bill, making Charlotte College a part of the greater Uni
versity, passed the House with but one no vote after two amend
ments were defeated. It cleared the Senate last week. The
amendments, offered by Reps. A. A. Zollicoffer of Vance and
George Uzzell of Rowan, would have postponed until July 1,
1967, the date on which the school would enter the university
Uzzell's amendment would have left to the University board of
trustees the date when the school became a campus of the univer
versity. Uzzell was concerned about the school joining the Uni
. versity before it is accredited by the Southern Association of Col
leges and Secondary Schools. The accreditation is expected by
Uzzell questioned whether it wouldn't degrade the university
in the eyes of the world, if the Charlotte campus gives a university
diploma before it actually is accredited.
Uzzell took note of behind the scenes maneuvering over the
weekend by supporters of the bill and said: "If AT&T stock goes
up on the stock market, it is because of all the long distance
calls made during the weekend over this bill."
Sen. Evans said the Mecklenburg delegation had done "a
lot of work" drumming up support for the bill and opposition to the
amendments. She said "thousands of people worked to make this
The debate centered on the two amendments.
Rep. Uzzell said under his amendment the board could make
the school, a branch "on any date prior to July 1, 1067 -if all the
requirements are met."
Rep. C. E. Leatherman of Lincoln said, "I feel very strongly . . .
this is like a baby ... we are under an obligation to begin crawl
ing before we can walk."
He said Uzzell's amendment would cripple the school. "If we
did delay the bill, it would in effect be trying to put off until to
morrow what we can do today."
Rep. I. C. Crawford of Buncombe said, "we are not estab
lishing a university. We already have one."
Rep. Paul Story of McDowell raised the question of adequate
appropriations, a matter which delayed the bill in the Senate
and the House last week.
Story said he wants "the campus to be one of excellence and
not a halfway school."
"Let's give the trustees two years to get the school on a sound .
financial basis," he said.
Efforts to make Charlotte College a branch of the university
date back to 1961. The move had to be approved by the UNC
trustees, the State Board of Higher Education and the General
Student headers To Visit
A delegation of student leaders from the University's newest
branch will visit Chapel Hill and Raleigh this weekend as the
first step toward a formal link between them and students at
the other three schools.
Hugh Stevens, president of the Consolidated Student Council,
said yesterday that three men and two women representing
the University of North Carolina at Charlotte would sit in on
Saturday's CSC meeting, and that a constitutional amendment
to bring the new branch into the council would be considered.
"We don't expect this change to take effect immediately,"
Stevens said, "but by next year Charlotte should be a full-fledged
voting member of the CSC."
The body will meet in the Erdahl-Cloyd Union on the N. C.
State campus at 2 p.m. Saturday. The Charlotte delegation will
arrive in Chapel Hill Friday to meet with Bob Spearman and
other Carolina student leaders. They will be the guests of the
N. C. State Student Government Saturday morning.
