Set Up In Suite C
by Anne Lafferty
Talking Point, a "crisis center" for
student problems, has reopened this fall
in Suite C of the Union, Sunday through
Thursday nights from 7 to 1 1 p.m.
Sponsored by the Student Health
Action Committee (SHAC), the service is
geared to "problem-solving," rather than
"ongoing psychiatry,' according to
medical student 'Morris McEwen.
The organizers of Talking Point feel
there is a special need for a place on
campus where students can go for help in
solving short-term problems.
"We hope to bridge the gap between
encumbered institutions and an untrained
friend," explained Dan Greenfield,
another medical student working with
A student organization, Talking Point
is "not in any way officially connected
with the University administration," said
"This is an advantage because someone

Talking Point emphasizes anonymity
and efficiency by providing students with
an opportunity to vent their problems to
an unknown person without having to
make an appointment.
No records are kept. "We don't even
ask your name," said McEwen.
Most of the graduate students who
counsel with Talking Point are medical
students, but the service hopes later to
include those in psychology, public
health, nursing and social work.
"We're more likely to share a student's
feelings because we went through it
ourselves," added McEwen.
If the response to the service is good,
Talking Point might expand to seven days
a week and open another booth on South
Campus, said McEwen.

Johnson, who gradujied trom LNC in
1 952 before rereivire degrees from the
Union Theological Seminary jnd Harvard
University, defines "counterculture" as. .
"the whole youth culture-po3iiic.il
radicals, the revival of fcastern religions,
the drug culture, everything."
He added the Foundation does not
exist simply to serve these people. Ve
are not concerned with baptizing the
counterculture.", he said. "We try to
translate the traditional Christian faith
into structures that are valid for today."
He believes, however, that change is
not always necessary. "It's interesting
how traditional forms of Christian life
strike this generation as strikingly fresh."
The example he used was the change
in the worship service. The Foundation's
Sunday service contains an old custom
called "the passing of the peace," in
which the congregation ends the service
by wishing each other peace.
"It fits so well into our times that no
one believed it was an ancient custom,"
he said. Other innovations in the service
include the use of film, dance and jazz.
The Wesley Foundation has been an
innovative organization since its inception
in 1913. It was founded as a national
organization, to prevent racial prejudice
that could result from being affiliated
with local congregations.
Instrumental in bringing, the
Foundation to Chapel Hill in the late
1940's was Dr. Louis R. Wilson, for
whom the graduate library is named.
There are , now 180 local organizations
of the Foundation, 10 in North Carolina.
"As denominational campus
ministries, the Wesley Foundation is
being phased out," said Johnson. "In a
few years I believe that our name and
sponsorship will change."
Johnson explained that the change is
coming because denominational
affiliation is meaning less and less.
"The Church has always responded to
changes in the culture," he said. "This is
just another one."
The role of the clergy is also changing.
"In the future, the Church will not be so
clerically dominant. The work of ministry
will be done by members of the
congregation," he said.
Johnson explained that these changes
are necessary because of a shift in society. .
"Organized religion has depended on 'the
word' for centuries," he said. "But now
the counterculture demands vision and
"People- criticize this generation for
not answering the questions they ask," he
observed. "But what can you expect? I
think they are on the right track just to
be asking these questions."

More than S300 has been raised for
the East Pakistan Cyclone Relief Fund
which was organized by a UNC Pakistani
student on Tuesday.
"Everybody has responded
wonderfully," says Omar Saiyid, a
graduate student in the Department of
City and Regional Planning. "I am very
grateful to the people of North Carolina
who have given so generously."
The response, says Saiyid, was
"primarily due to the story which
appeared in the DTH (on Wednesday)."
The cyclone which" struck East
Pakistan a week ago had been described
as one of the worst natural disasters in
