Brown Hall Earns "C" Sanitation Grade By STANLEY JOHNSON Questions about Brown Hall food service have arisen since the cafeteria received a "C" sanitation rating September 25. The rating was awarded on the 70.5 points the cafeteria received. The facility is one of two cafterias owned by the University and run by ARA Slater Food Services. A recent interview with manager, F. M. Schramm, revealed that multiple causes, pointed out by the health inspector, resulted in the "C" rating. According to Schramm, the dishwashing ma- PATRICIA MOBLEY Patricia Mobley Slated To Reign At Homecoming Patricia Mobley of Greensboro, a senior engineering mathematics major, will reign at A&T State University's Homecoming celebration October 12-15. Patricia, who was elected "Miss A&T" last spring, will be crowned at a special coronation ceremony in the Charles Moore gym at 8 P.M., October 12. Her upperclass attendants will be Mary Johnson and Edith Younger. Two attendants will represent the freshman and sophomore classes. Patricia is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Mobley of Greensboro. She is president of the Math. Club, treasurer of Alpha Phi chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, "Miss Company B" of the Army ROTC Detachment, and a member of the Off-Campus Clut and the Engineering SDEG. The A&T-Maryland State footbaU game on October 14 will highlight the four-day celebration, although a number of other activities have been planned for visiting alumni. The annual pep rally and bonfire will be staged Friday evening on the University's practice football field. A homecoming parade with more than a mile of floats, marching bands and campus beauties will get underway at 10 A.M. Saturday. A pre-game show featuring A&T's 140-piece Marching Aggies will beld at 1 P.M., half an hour prior to the football game. The annual Homecoming Ball is scheduled for Saturday at 8 P.M. in Moore Gymnasium. The concluding activity will be the Annual Alumni Worship Service in Harrison Auditorium on Sunday, October 15, at 11 A.M. The Reverend Sampson Buie, who graduated from A&T in 1952, will be the speaker. Union Committee To Set Leagues For Bowlers By HILLIARD B. HINES, JR. In a recent interview with Roger McKee, assistant director of the Memorial Union, it was found out that the Games and Tournaments Committee plans to stimulate a higher interest in students towards bowling by promoting bowling tournaments throughout the year. At the persent, the Games and Tournament Committee is in the process of establishing leagues to participate in these tournaments. Presently, four leagues are being established: the Aggies, the Bulldogs, the Coeds, and the Spare- makers, each consisting of five members. Trophies will be awarded to the male who has the highest bowling average and the female who has the highest bowling average. Three trophies have already been awarded. Two of these were awarded during the spring to Thomas Brew- el and Helen Powell for having the highest male and female averages, respectively. The third was awarded to Lawrence McSwain who won the tournament that was held during the summer. chine was inoperative. It seems the trouble was in the rinse cycle. Coupled with this, the inspector commented on the flies which frequent the dining facility. Air current fans at the entrances are especially designed to keep flies out. These fans, though operative, were not turned on. To add further to the inspector's list, he found that the milk was not being properly sealed thus making it possible to pour out half the milk and replace it with water. Concerning the broken dishwasher, Schramm said, "When I learn ed the machine was broken, I went to the car and got the necessary tools, came back and had it fixed in five minutes, but the inspector left before I finished." Since, then, Schramm informed this paper that "professionals have looked it (the machine) over." Although the University furnishes the equipment and buildings for ARA Food Services, the Company is responsible for all repairs to machinery. With reference to the air current fans used to keep flies out, Schramm said the fans were not Mayor Bain Addresses President's Club Stressing the importance of communication, Mayor Carson Bain told the President's Club to "try a little perpendicular communication in addition to hyperbola." "You live in a city that is willing to communicate; join wth me and help me with suggestions", the Mayor told the student leaders who make up the President's Club. The Thursday evening dinner meeting with the University president, Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy lasted for two and one-half hours with the Mayor as special guest. The Mayor asked to be questioned about any and all phases of Greensboro life. He was immediately posed with questions ranging from needed playground areas to defenses against possible black rebellions. Among the continuing stream of questions, all of which could not be answered by the Mayor, were some pertaining to open housing; voting and voter registration; city council elections; and re-development project confusion. The Mayor pleaded ignorance to the fact that local newspapers run classified ads which specify jobs for "white only." In his closing comments, President Dowdy solicited the help and spirit of the campus leaders in preserving existing programs at the University and rejecting any ideas that come from anybody degrading Negro Universities and Colleges. The President expressed deep concern over registration procedures. For the spring semester, he announced that he plans to hire a team of specialists to conduct pre-registration. He cautioned, however, that i,t could work only if all students cooperate and perform necessary pre-registration forms on the prescribed day. "The only students who may possibly encounter difficulties," injected the President, "are those who fail courses." As promised, the President released his latest pep-song, "Aggies Are Made for Winning." The sonp is written to the tune of "These Boots are Made for Walking." The song was warmly accepted by the group and after several attempts was successfully sung through its entirety. TH|i^5 REGISTER on because students, girls in particular, had complained about the air blowing on them. "Unless a student turns the fans off," Schramm commented, "they will be on." "The University dairy has now been informed about the required proper sealing of milk," Schramm said. Commenting further he said that "there have been quite a few inspections since January of 1966 when ARA took over; and, up to now, we have always had an *'A" rating." "I have called Mr. Elkins, the new health inspector for a new examination ... we never know then they might come in and make their inspection . . .," and speaking hypothetically Schramm said, "as soon as you find that something is wrong you do something about it." Murphy Hall, a much larger dining facility for freshmen and sophomores, has not been inspected recently. The ARA Slater Food Services handles the two cafeterias, the Union Snack Bar, the two private dining rooms, and the newly opened Red Carpet Room. It employs approximately 75 full time workers and about the same number of students. Students have voiced varied opinions, all of which were unfavorable to the low rating. "It is most shocking and disturbing to know that a dining facility serving so many people should receive a sanitation grade of "C".; it makes one think that all along we have been eating by faith alone," remarked Curtis Brantley, a senior at the University and a noted campus leader. Coach Piggott Protests Game Volumne XXXIX, No. 3, N. C. A. & T. State University, Greensboro, N. C. October 5, 1967 Against Smith Research Park Offers Aid To Grad Students Research Triangle Park, N. C— A proven time-saving device to assist graduate students in the sciences with their thesis literature research is now available to students at N. C. Agricultural and Technical State University. The North Carolina Science and Technology Research Center, a state agency in the Research Triangle Park, is offering the resources its massive computerized bank of information to graduate students as a supplement to their literature research. This experimental project is supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to seek better ways of disseminating scientific information. For $5, the STRC will conduct a computer search for material pertinent to the student's field of study in the 250,000 reports of recent research collected world-wide by NASA. About half of the material is unpublished report literature, including government and contractor technical reports. The remainder was gathered from more than 1,000 different professional and scientific journals published in the U. S. and many foreign countries, including the USSR. Monthly updates keep the collection current. Local universiy faculty members estimate that to find the literature located through a single computer search would require as much as a month using conventional manual searching techniques. Topics in the STRC bank of information cover these fields: aircraft and structural mechanics; biosciences and biotechnology; chemistry and propellants; communications and computers; electronics and electronic equipment; fluid mechanics and aerodynamics; geophysics and meteorology; instrumentation and photography; and machine elements and processes. Materials — metallic and non- metallic; mathematics; physics — general, atomic, molecular, nuclear, plasma, solid-state, masers; propulsion systems, thermodynamics^ nd combustion; research facilities; and space sciences. General — industrial applications and technology, basic research, defense aspects, law and related legal matters and legislative hearings and documents. For further information, write or call: N. C. Science and Technology Research Center, Research Triangle Park, N. C. 27709; Dur ham 549-8291, Raleigh 834-7357 and Chapel Hill 929-6688. An appointment for a conference to plan the search will be arranged with an application engineer of the STRC. Special Announcement From Parade Registration Committee Any float that involves persons other than members of the organization in the planning, design, and/or construction shall be placed in the professional category. Student leaders of organizations who plan to enter a float in the parade are requested to turn in tickets for each person who will be on their float or car to the Parade Registration Committee. The committee will meet in the Student Union Lobby Friday, October 13, 1967 from 3 to 5 P. M. At this time, a check will also be made of each organization's float classification. Student Leaders, Please be present. A&T football coach Bert Piggott is going to protest Saturday night's CIAA game against Johnson C. Smith at Memorial Stadium for a controversial fifth down that enabled the Bulls to tie the Aggies 6-6 in the last seven seconds of play. "I'm going to protest the game based on the officials' judgment of downs," stated Piggott after the game. "Johnson C. Smith actually had five downs and scored on that fifth down. The statistician from Smith had the same statistics that our statistician had, and there were no penalties in that series. "I feel that officials were off in their judgment so we'er going to protest the game to the commis- ioner some way. I don't know if it will do any good, but we are going to protest it." RUN-AWAY BULLDOZER? One might chalk off a run-away animal or an electric lawnmower and even a rolling automobile as a not-too-unsual-sight. But a several-ton-bulldozer-on-the-loose is almost inconceivable. Unusual or not, last Thursday, band members practicing on North Campus witnessed this driverless bulldozer on the rampage. It barely missed the greenhouse of Barnes Hall and came to rest here at the rear of Sockwell Hall. It made quite a depression on the building's shower room; however, damages are estimated as light. Why is it pointed in this direction? Because it was running loose in reverse gear. 4
