Alsop: GOP Seeking Demo

to the Republican house."
Stewart Alsop, columnist for
Newsweek magazine, made this comment
Monday night in Carroll Hall as he
discussed the 1970 elections and their
consequences on students.
Alsop was the .third speaker in the
"Students and Politics... the Elections of
1970" series being sponsored by the
Carolina Forum and the College of Arts

"The only area in which students and
administrators seem to disagree is
visitation," Hickok said. "Although the
issue of seven-day, 24-hour visitation has
not arisen, the policy of
self-determination is growing in
Last week UNC-C house presidents
met and voted unanimously for the
concept of self-determination. They
began work on a Housing Act which will
detail visitation procedure.
A policy similar to self-determination
was employed last year when two

opened. Problems encountered during the

"These people are, in effect, carefully
controlled exhibits, Exhibit A, if you
will, of what Nixon and Agnew and
company want the voters to believe that
they are really running against."
Alsop said, "In my political judgment,
for what it's worth, this technique of the
President is very, very, very effective. It
could even be decisively effective."
His conclusions are based on
observations of Nixon and Agnew in
action on the campaign trail.
He related several incidents from a
recent trip with the President in
Vermont, Connecticut and New Jersey.
In Burlington, Conn., the President
spoke about those who "shout
obscenities about America, who refuse to
abide by majority rule, who resort to
violence," Alsop said.
The President, he said, went on to
advise his listeners not to return the
violence but to "speak up in the
traditional American way with your votes
on Nov. 3. Speak up for America."

Besides presenting their views on the
upcoming elections, the panel members
will discuss ways students may most
effectively participate in the elections.
Each party will be given 12 minutes to
speak and a five minute rebuttal. The
session will then be thrown open to
questions from the audience.
The panel will be moderated by Dr.

involvement in the 1970 elections.
first year caused the administration to
initiate stricter regulations.
Originally, visitors were permitted to
come and go freely in the dormitory
lounges, Hickok said. The lounges are
isolated from the halls and accessible by
elevator. A petition to alter the
regulations and require visitors to call up
for permission was circulated last year
and signed by ten girls.
The dean of students, according to
Hickok, considered the petition to be the
opinion of a majority of students on
campus and the ruling was changed.
, A petition with several hundred
signatures is presently being circulated in
opposition to the new regulation.

however, scribbled in his notebook, "One
obscene slogan is worth a hundred

"Students have been cast as the villain
in the United States," Alsop said, "they
have widespread unpopularity and
negligible voting strength."
Nixon's central thrust in his campaign,
said Alsop, is "to identify himself with
the 'great silent majority,' if you will, and
identify the opposition with those kids
shouting their four-letter slogans."
He continued, "The very worst thing
you (students) can do is to gather
yourself in little knots at political rallies
and shout obscenities.

Student Body President Tom Bello
issued a statement Tuesday indicating his
intention to appoint former legislator
David Wynne as Suprejne Court justice.
Wynne, who will be appointed in the
near future, will be the first of three
Justice appointments by Bello to be
considered for ratification by Student
Legislature. Only two of five Justice
vacancies are currently filled.

attorney general's staff as a freshman and
later was appointed Assistant Attorney

said. The exchange will be operated by
students with profits reverting to student
government. The book exchange was
begun in response to complaints of high
costs and low resale values at the lone
book exchange presently on campus.
Hickok spoke of student participation
in campus affairs as being "par" with
those of other universities.
"Despite an apparent interest in
self-government by students, less than
one-third of the student body voted in
last year's executive elections," he said.
In pointing out the lack of student
effort, Hickok called attention to the
