WXYC wins A&M record award
A&M Records' Southeastern bureau
head Paul Crowley came to Chapel Hill
last week from his Raleigh office to
present student FM radio station
WXYC with a plaque commemorating
the rock group Supertramp's last two
albums, which each sold over two
A&M presents these plaques to the
station in each region which gives a
great deal of air time to an album which
ultimately sells at least a million copies,
thus helping to "establish new artists in
the saturated industry of rock and roll."
The two albums, which are classified
as double gold, are Circle of the Century
and Even in the Quietest Moments. ,
Dave Speigner, WXYC music
director, called the recognition "a big
moment for the college radio station on
campus," adding that the award is the
most significant yet received by WXYC.
More viewers are tuning in to public
television than ever before. That bit of
good news was released in an A.C.
Nielsen report conducted for the Public
Broadcasting System (PBS).
Nielsen surveyed a four-week period
last spring and found that three of every
five television households tune in PBS
regularly. This was a rather astonishing
1 1 percent increase over the same period
in 1976. According to the survey, almost
39 percent of United States homes were
tuned in to public television for an
average of almost three hours a week.

offerings will be a number of Japanese woodcuts from the
Ukiyo-e School, along with numerous wood engravings by
Henry Wolf which are proofs from the Wolf estate. Area artists
represented are Laura Gorsch and Herb Jackson. This special
exhibit will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.

A separate report released last week
by the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting indicated that since 1974
public television stations have increased
their total programming air time by 17
percent and the number of programs
broadcast by 16 percent.
Both of these reports came as
extremely good news to the often
beleaguered broadcasting system. It was
also very timely news since Congress is
now considering President Carter's five
year plan for public broadcasting. The

Adjusting to University life can cause
problems for just about anyone. But when
you're a oology major from a small town in
Nigeria, inconveniences like preregistration.
midterms and term papers are dwarfed by
other difficulties foreign students face.
Nnmadi Ibenagu came to UNC as a
freshman four years ago from Neni. Nigeria,
about 400 miles from Lagos. After attending
a post-secondary program there, his desire to
travel and his attraction to the academic
program at UNC eventually brought him
"1 wanted to see more of the world." he
says. "1 thought of the United States and
Canada because of what 1 had heard about
them. I was impressed with the academic
program here (at UNC) and it was in a
desirable geographic location.
"1 was afraid ol cold weather. I had never
experienced any and I was almost afraid that
snow was something you would have to wear
a helmet for.
"UNC responded well to my letter and
they went beyond being formal. I was
impressed by that because some other
schools had not responded so well.
Eventually UNC became my final choice."
Ibenagu says it is difficult, if not
impossible, to prepare oneself for cultural
"It's like groping in the dark. I now see
how far off my ideas were." he said. "There
were problems lor sure. Everyone around me
was different from the people I was used to.
The food was different; the weather was
Although Ibenagu spoke English in
Nigeria, he still encountered language
problems here. " 1 he Southern accent was a
problem. I he people here seem to slur their
words." he said. "I understood people from
the North better. Their speaking was more
distinct. I also had trouble with the Black
dialect. I wasn't in contact with them. I've
adjusted to that now by getting to know the
culture. Language is just a way of
communicating one's culture and once one
understands the culture one can understand
Another problem unique to foreign
students. Ibenagu says, is the difficulty of
making friends with people of another
"I think one who travels should be
broadminded. socially inclined, and not be
discouraged easily. Some people don't treat
me w ith respect. Some people are friendly; I
continue with them.
The Nigerian press had carried many
stories about the racial problems in the
South. Ibenagu says, and he was initially
w orried about attending a southern college.
"1 heard about problems concerning racial
integration. I didn't want to hear or think
about it too much. Many ol m Iriends in
Nigeria thought I would be discriminated
against and I wouldn't be given lair
