To date, $292,000 has been committed for the N. C. Computer Orientation Project, established by the board of higher education to enable public and private colleges throughout North Carolina to offer their students instruction in the use of computers. Grants have been received from the Carnegie Corporation, Burlington Industries Foundation, the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company, the Mary Reynolds Bab- cock Foundation, the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and the State Board of Higher Education. Under the program, TUCC will be able to extend its services not only to the Research Triangle area but as far as the Atlantic and the Appalachians. The college will be linked to TUCC through telephone lines. Each participating institution will be furnished a teletype terminal on its campus and a modest amount of communication and computer time. The project will offer the institutions a one-year trial period of computing service without charge. '■ It is hoped the North Carolina Computer Orientation Project will produce an educational breakthrough by bringing computer technology to the campuses across the state years ahead of normal timing. In charge of arrangements for the meet was Dr. Arthur F. Jackson, dean of the A&T School of Education and General Studies and former director of the A&T Data Processing Center. ^ -_ _ -_ . # ments may be heard over WANT. Processing Center. Legs Get Much Attention Temple U. Offers Grads A Chance To Earn While They Learn Wonder what the spring fashion will be like? Well, here are a few valuable hints. You may not believe it, but it is predicted that the skirts will continue their rising spree. Women will be accepted in slacks practically everywhere. And would you like to believe that paper clothing are coming into existence? Yes, this is going to be quite an exciting year hi the world of fashions. As we look at those mini skirts, it appears that much attention should be given to the appearance of the legs. Young women should use stockings that do a great deal for the legs. Decals and pasties are also recommended. Young women should no longer have fear of wearing pants and feeling out of place. There are pants for practically any occasion. They are designed so right for women that one can only be admired instead of being whispered about in them. Suits for women are predicted to be quite popular also. These suits are complemented with blouses. One of the more popular coat shapes will be the back-flaring tent fitted in front. In the way of shoes, there will be the chunky heel, paris buckle, and open back. The lower heel shoes are designed for those skirts that rise higher and higher above the knees. There is also a new kind of footwear where a mesh stocking is attached to a sole and heel, minus the upper. Some of the favorite colors will be sunny yellows, cural reds, various greens, and tangerine. There you have some of the ideas for spring. Be bold and adventuresome and get out and be in the swing of this fashionable world. Temple University is offering graduate students who would like to go into the teaching field an opportunity to earn while they learn. The University has established an intern teaching program for college graduates who have pursued a liberal education with emphasis on preparation in a specific subject area. No education courses are required for a student to enroll in the intern teaching program. This on-the-job training program is designed to accommodate the needs of those persons who have had little or no professional training and who wish to become teach ers. Applicants may prepare for either secondary teaching or special education teaching. Those ac^ cepted attend a summer orientation course at Temple University^ In the fall interns are placed in teaching positions in city or suburban schools. They earn up tq $6,100 while they are preparing for their master's degree in their specific subject area and professional certification. Interested students may write to Intern Teaching Program for College Graduates, Temple University! of the Commonwealth System of Higher Education, Philadelphia,: Pennsylvania 19122. Detailed infor-; mation should be secured at once.: Frosh Receive Option Of Deferred Grading — Palo Alto, Calif. - (I.P.) — Opportunities for Stanford University freshmen to take English and Western Civilization on a "deferred grading" basis have been greatly expanded this year. Under this plan, students have the option of waiting until they complete these required courses before they receive a single grade covering a full year's work. Previously offered only in the honors section of Western Civilization, this "deferred grading" option has been chosen by nearly half those taking Freshman English and about a third of those in Western Civilization. In addition, all freshmen this year have been assigned to sections of these two basic courses according to their residence unit. Each men's house is combined with a wing of a freshman women's residence, and their teachers are encouraged to join them for meals. This change extends a pattern tried experimentally last year with half the English and Western Civilization sections. Surveys by the Undergraduate Dean's Office showed a majority of men favored this emphasis on residential living groups studying together, although women were somewhat less enthusiastic. Recognizing the improved caliber of Stanford students, the Freshman English program this year will give grades "somewhere in the 'B' range" for "average, conscientious work" and encourage students to read more about higher education and other current topics, according to Professor Albert Guerard, co-director of the program. The most common aim of Freshman English is to teach students to write clear, expository prose, he notes. Yet no single method has a clearly demonstrable effect on this ability. Several colleges, including Stanford, regard an intelligent, sensitive reading of serious literature as one objective of this course, Professor Guerard adds. "In some colleges, the reading is almost entirely in the classics of earlier periods. This historical approach, at the freshman level, has proved singularly unsuccessful with students who do not intend to go into the humanities. "At Stanford, the present emphasis in Freshman English is on contemporary writing or earlier works of clear contemporary relevance." Professor Guerard hopes the new suggested grading practices will relieve "the common shock of receiving low grades and severe criticism for the first time." He believes this shock can have "serious and often lasting" consequences: "The student may quickly give up his high ambitions and his sense of intellectual excitement." (The introduction of pass-fail grades and deferred grading are steps in the same direction.) FORT BENNING, GEORGIA — First Lieutenant Voneree DeLoatch, 26, of Hobgood, has been promoted to captain at U. S. Army Training Center, Infantry. Lt C. Berkely Strong, executive officer of Committee Group, USATCI, and Maj. R. C. Lomax, coordinator of training, pinned the silver bars on Captain DeLoatch. Captain DeLoatch earned his bachelor of science degree in social studies at A&T College in 1964. He received his reserve officer's commission as second lieutenant upon graduation.
