Special Teams To Visit Campus During Week Governor Terry Sanford has declared February 16-22 Peace Corps Week in North Carolina. During the week special Peace Corps, teams from Washington, D. C, will visit colleges and universities throughout the state. The team will visit A&T February 17, 18, and 19. The purpose of the visit, said Peace Corps officials, is to interpret a record number of opportunities for Peace Corps service, as well as to supply general information to students and faculty. Plans are being made to set up Peace Corps Information centers at some central sites on each of the campuses. The centers will be manned by Peace Corps staff members. The Peace Corps team will administer the non-competitive Placement Test several times daily during their stay. Peace Corps questionnaires must be completed before one takes the test, said the Peace Corps officials. Those thinking of applying should fill out a questionnaire and submit it to the Peace Corps representative upon taking the test. Applications may be obtained in advance from the Peace Corps liason on each campus. Mr. Hardy Liston is the liason for this campus. While this special information effort is primarily for college upperclassmen and graduate students, it is also aimed to provide general information to all interested persons in the community. The Peace Corps plans to train approximately 6000 volunteers from this summer to serve in Africa, Asia and Latin America. More than 80 volunteers from North Carolina are currenty serving overseas. Six have returned after completing their two-year assignments. By Bookstore In order that no student will be deprived or delayed from receiving his or her textbooks at the proper time, full cooperation is needed from the entire student body. Books must be returned on or before the last day of official scheduled examinations. March 3-5, 1964 the Book Store will be open from 8:30 until 5:00 P.M. for receiving books.
