Festival cost
will challenge
AWS plans

"Choice and Challenge" is the theme of the
Women's Festival scheduled by the
Association for Women Students Jan. 22
through 28, but it also describes the
predicament the group faces because of lack
of funds.
The group's choice? Cut back rather than
cancel. Its challenge? Find the necessary
funds.
"A lot of our plans have been destroyed
because of lack of money," said J. Sharpe,
chairperson of the festival. "We could put on
a hell of a festival if we had more money.
"We have some money and we're working
with it as best we can. . . .They (the Campus
Governing Council) said these programs
aren't necessary. We're going to get money in
other places."
Betty Ausherman, AWS chairperson,
agrees with Sharpe. "We're not depending
solely on Student Government (for money),"
she said. "We've learned not to do that."
The AWS now has $5,800 in their budget
for the festival. They received $1,800 for the
festival from CGC last spring and $4,000 this
fall.
"We are in desperate need of funds,"
Ausherman said. "We are soliciting funds
from the campus, faculty, people in the
community and different organizations and
departments on campus."
Sharpe said AWS hopes to pay travel
expenses for festival speakers but will
probably spend most of its money on the
main speaker and the concert planned for the
festival.
Many local women will be participating in
the festival, partially because AWS has so
little expense money. "They're doing it out of
the goodness of their hearts. . .because they
know we aren't a rich organization,"
Ausherman said.
The AWS also plans to sell stationery,
Christmas cards and Women's Festival T
shirts. They are taking orders for shirts now
and will sell them at the International

DURHAM (DPI) The Department of
Health, Education and Welfare said
Monday that medical schools at 15
universities, including Duke University, will
lose more than $12 million in federal aid
because, of their refusal to admit American
students transferring from foreign medical
schools.
Figures from HEW indicated Duke would
lose about $497,330, but officials at the
university said the figure likely would be
about $685,000 annually for three years
under the terms of the present law.
Spokespersons for the University of North
Carolina medical school at Chapel Hill and
Bowman Gray medical school at Wake
Forest University in Winston-Salem said
they have not decided whether to accept the
transfer students. They said they are hopeful
Congress will change the current law to
remove the requirement.
A House-Senate conference committee is
expected to meet soon to work out a
compromise on legislation to change the
requirement on acceptance of students'.
To overcome the loss of federal funds, the
Duke medical school has launched a fund-
raising drive, an official said Monday.
Dr. William G. Anlyan, vice president for
health affairs, said the campaign,
"Operation Independence," apparently has
caused an increase in the amount of money
donated by alumni and other supporters of
the school.
"1 think there's a fundamental problem of
federal intrusion into academic decision
making in terms of telling us w ho should be
admitted and from what pool," Anlyan said,
"If you open the door to academic
intrusion, the government will be deciding
who ought to be taught, w ho ought to teach
them and when they should be graduated
and under what circumstances," he said.
"There is such a thing as academic
integrity," he said in a telephone interview.
"We are prepared to take a stand on this
issue because once you open a door, there's
no stopping it."
Anlyan said the university began its
appeal for more contributions about a
month ago and has brought about a 60
percent increase in the number of
contributors and a 15 percent rise in the
amount of money raised compared to the
same period a year ago.
Anlyan also said the medical school might
be able to help reduce the effects of the loss
by freezing pay raises for faculty and senior
administrative personnel, cutting back on
hiring and making other belt-tightening
measures. He said there would be no tuition
increases beyond the 7 percent already
scheduled.
"We definitely would not put it on the
backs of our students," he said. "We have to
remain competitive in terms of tuition, and
we want to attract students from a broad
spectrum of society, therefore, railing
tuition is not the answer."
Anlyan said the legislation requiring
acceptance of American student!
transferring from foreign schools resulted
from a lobby of parents of United States
citizens attending schools abroad. He laid
many of the students involved have
credentials "far below the usual credentiali
for admission to the Duke medical ichooli.
Obviously, they didn't get into any of the 1 16
medical schools in this country to start
with."

Handicrafts Bazaar this weekend in the
Great Hall. The AWS also plans to hold a
coffeehouse one night during the festival.
Planning for the Women's Festival began
in late May, Ausherman said. The purpose
of the festival is to present many aspects of
women's place in society today.
"We want to present alternatives to
women so they can choose how they can lead
their lives," Ausherman said. "We want to
make them aware of all the possibilities they
have. Also, it will be a week-long
celebration."
Although many specifics are still
indefinite, the program for the week will
include a speaker on the Equal Rights
Amendment, films, panel discussions,
workshops, dramatic productions, art
exhibits and music.
Sharpe said other AWS groups in North
Carolina have offered suggestions for the
festival. At least five campus organizations
also will be co-sponsoring events, she said.
Anyone who is interested in helping with
the festival or who would like to offer
suggestions should contact Ausherman or
Sharpe in Suite D, Room 237 of the Carolina
Union or call the AWS office at 933-2165.

In response to criticism from the Faculty Council Agenda
Committee, the Educational Policy Committee (EPC) has
clarified its recommendations on proposed Honor Code
changes.
The committee recommendations reject the proposal of
the Committee on Student Conduct (COSC) calling for
faculty proctoring and outlining specific faculty and student
responsibilities.
Previously, the committee had recommended rejection of
only faculty proctoring.
Secretary of the Faculty Henry C. Boren said last week
that EPC seemed to be opposed to faculty proctoring, but
that it wasn't clear whether the committee supported the
other recommendations in that particular COSC proposal.
"This (the proposal outlining faculty responsibilities) is
too detailed, this is overkill," said Professor Andrew M.
Scott, an EPC member.
The proposal would require faculty members to do the
following:
Inform students at the beginning of each course and
before all graded work that the Honor Code is in effect.
"Where appropriate, a clear definition of plagiarism should
be presented," the proposal states.
4 To identify notes, materials or aids which may be used in
advance of any examination or graded work, and to require
unauthorized materials or aids to be removed from the room
or otherwise made inaccessible.
To require students to sign a pledge that they have
neither given nor received unauthorized aid on all written
work.
To reduce the possibility of cheating on graded work by
taking "all reasonable steps consistent with existing physical
class room conditions" (such as alternate seating).
"To exercise caution in the preparation, duplication and
security of examinations to ensure that students cannot gain
improper knowledge of their contents."
To avoid re-use of exams.
To supervise the class during exams to discourage
cheating and to detect any violations which occur.
To report violations to the office of the student attorney
general and to cooperate with that office in the investigation
and trial of any incident of alleged violation.
Vaida Thompson, EPC chairperson, supported
enumeration of faculty responsibilities. "It appears from
what we've heard that faculty have not seen their role and
have not beendoing it,"Thompson said. "What's wrong with
spelling them (faculty responsibilities) out?"
"1 don't like faculty proctoring and I don't think this set of
rules is right," Scott said.
Committee members Richard M. Cramer and William
Pollitzer were in favor of retaining the specific
responsibilities.
The committee also voted to accept the COSC proposal
that the "rat clause" be deleted. It supported proposals
making suspension the normative sanction for academically
related offenses and extending the minimum length of
"indefinite sanctions.
EPC also voted to support the COSC proposal for the
creation of the position of Honor Code counselor and the
proposal to "make probationary sanctions more
meaningful."
EPC will discuss the pass-fail option at its Dec. 5 meeting.

Past incidents demonstrate
struggles of black admissions
By DAVID WATTERS
Staff Writer
We conclude that in the field of public
education, the doctrine of "separate but
equal" has no place.... Separate educational
facilities are inherently unequal.
Supreme Court decision, Brown vs.
Board of Education, 1954
"UNC black students' history has been the
history of struggle," read the caption under a
picture of black students holding protest
signs in a recent issue of Black Ink. During
the 27 years blacks have attended UNC,
several incidents have demonstrated some of
the struggles of black students at the
predominately white University.
Four black students were admitted to the
UNC law school in 1951. According to J.
Carlyle Sitterson, a former UNC chancellor
and a professor here since the 1930s, many
people believed integration of graduate
programs was acceptable because the limited
number of schools offering graduate degrees
was limited. But at the undergraduate level,
the concept of "separate but equal"
distinguished "white" schools from "black"
schools.
These black law students were the first to
encounter discrimination at UNC when they
were not allowed to sit in the student section
during football games. Instead, the
University gave them tickets to sit in the
"colored section" in the end zone stands. But '
"after several student organizations protested
this Jim Crowism, the University let the
black students sit in the student section.
"The first black undergraduate students
were enrolled under federal court order in
1955, in the wake of the Brown vs. Board of
Education decision," Sitterson said. The
federal court also ordered UNC to process
applications without regard to race.
But while the University was forced to
accept three black undergraduates, public
sentiment still pushed for some form of
segregation. The University responded by
reserving an entire floor of a dormitory for
the black students' living quarters, so the
three undergraduates were the only
occupants of the third floor of Steele
Dormitory.
"From 1955 through the early '60s, the
number of black students increased slowly,"
Sitterson said. "Students and faculty
supported black enrollment at UNC, but the
University was just not receiving many
See PROGRESSION on page 3.
"Sure do," he answered, looking at me
sympathetically. "You've got the most
positive case of it that I've seen all year."
I concentrated on the wall poster of a
mountain stream and thought about
everything I knew about mono. I went down
the short list in my mind of everyone I had
kissed lately, plotting revenge. I supposed
that 1 would have to drop out of school or at
least drop a course or two. And what if 1 had
a relapse? What a way to start my senior
year!
One thing was a relief. At least I had a
label for why I was feeling so rotten.
Since the beginning of school, I had been
overly tired. I would be out of breath after
climbing three flights of stairs to go to my
dorm room. 1 figured it was the heat or, more
probably, the extra 10 pounds I had put on
over the summer. I couldn't even walk past
my bed without lying down for a nap.
Then, during advertising class the third
week of school, I discovered the telltale sign
that something was wrong.
I was scratching my neck when I felt two
lumps the size of golfballs under my chin.
Was this why my throat was so sore? My
glands never had been swollen before, and I
used to envy persons in junior high who had
huge lumps under their chins to attest to
their colds. .
Dr. Eagar's voice broke through into my
thoughts: "The only thing you can do for
mono is get a lot of rest and eat well
balanced meals. If your throat should start
hurting so bad that you can't swallow, give
me a call."
So bad that I wouldn't be able to swallow?
Three days later, 1 found out w hat he meant.
An aspirin going down my throat felt as
though it were scraping either side. But a
week later my fever was gone, my sore throat
had abated, I was getting plenty of blessed
sleep and I had decided that maybe life v.as
