alumnus, program director Edgar
Shields said Wednesday.
The money will be used to
purchase annual trophies for an
outstanding male and female
intramural participant and plaques
for four male and female runner
up participants. Shields said. Poe
chose to endow his donation so the
awards could be given annually.
Wayne Going, the program's
associate director, said the commit
tee that set the criteria for recipients
of the award consisted of four
faculty members and three
Poe may be able to attend the
presentation of the awards, Going
said. It will take place in the Pit

The criteria for the awards will
be in the areas of sportsmanship,
leadership, participation and aca
demics. The student must have
participated in 4 of the 5 major
team sports, 3 of the 5 minor team
sports and 2 or more of the non
point system activities. To qualify
in the area of scholarship, the
nominees must be in good aca
demic standing during the aca
demic year.
Intramural managers will nom
inate students for the Poe awards
until March 25, and the IM-REC
professional staff will make the
final selections for the awards.
Poe attended UNC from 1930 to
1933, took one year off and
returned to graduate in 1935. He
graduated from the UNC law
school in 1938, and practices law
in Raleigh. Poe has also recently
published a book about people
from North Carolina whom he has
known over the years.
He participated in the intramural
program in football, basketball,
Softball, tennis and track. He won
the Grail Cup three times, an award
based on participation and team
achievement as an outstanding
intramural athlete.
Gary McLamb, a graduate
assistant in the physical education
department, said the University
used to have an intramural awards
system, but at some time in the past
it was dropped. Poe has requested
that the amount of his endowment
be kept confidential, McLamb

thread that runs through the series.
"The Journey," a staggering 14 and
a half hours long, receives its southern
premiere at the Yorktown Theatre in
The film is described as "a journey
through the consciousness of a world
which spends billions on weapons
while people starve, which exhausts
itself in a gigantic arms race while
unable to solve even simple prob
lems." It is a non-narrative film that
attempts objectivity but acknowl
edges its bias. In a spoken introduc
tion over a blank screen, Watkins
says, "... I must emphasize that our
presentation of the information is
biased, due to our very strong feelings
about the subject of this film."
It is a self-styled "Film for Peace"
and something of a peak in Watkins'
career in film. The catalyst for "The
Journey" was his controversial 1965
film "The War Game," a docu-drama
of World War III made for the British
Broadcasting Company, who subse
quently banned it. The outcry was so
great the film received a theatrical
release and went on to win an Oscar
for best documentary.
Watkins' subjects in "The Journey"
include victims of the Hiroshima and
Nagasaki bombings and the German
survivors of Allied fire-bombings on
Hamburg during World War II. In
this respect, and because of the
documentary's length, the film might
provoke comparisons to "Shoah."
But Watkins' view is less specific and
certainly multi-layered.
He explores media manipulation,
the withholding of information by
governments both East and West, the
irresponsible, "photo-opportunity"
attitude that governs journalism and
television news. Interviewees speak
about war, racism, aggression,
exploitation and an almost endless
list of other subjects. A dozen
countries are featured. Watkins
filmed on five continents and in eight
languages. It is very difficult to say
exactly and concisely just what this
film is "about." It is little wonder then,
that "The Journey" has been de
scribed by critics as "more an event
than a film."

"Vie Journey" will he shown at the
Yorktown Vieatre twice in its entirety
from March 18 through March 24.
