HINES A march was staged Saturday afternoon in support of the Negro candidates who seek public offices in North Carolina in the November elections. It was held pirmarily to urge all Negroes and any other people who desire a change in the framework of the government of this state to get out and vote in the May 4 primary for these candidates who will bring about these changes. The marchers assembled at HoUand Bowl on the University campus, and marched to Douglas park where the prospective candidates made platform speeches to the audience. Bryce Smith, student government president of Dudley High Sehool, presided over the rally. An organizer of the march stated before the audience that the purpose of the raUy was to give "all of us a chance to meet the candidates and ask questions." The candidates represented at the rally were Dr. Reginald Hawkins, Major Richard M. Lee, Mrs. Alfreda Webb, Reverend Cecil Bishop, and Attorney Henry Frye. Dr. George Simkins, president of the local chapter of the N. A. A. C. P., spoke for Dr. Hawkins who was at that time busy campaigning elsewhere with Reverend Ralph Abernathy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s successor to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Dr. Simkins said of Dr. Hawkins, 'He has a program which wUl revitalize our state. . • . "He urged all concerned people, whether they be white or black, to "vote with full vigor to tackle our problems." He talked about the issues that Dr. Hawkins is taking a stand on. Dr. Simkins said that in his stand on education, Dr. Hawkins said that the greatest emphasis on education should be placed upon chUdren from kindergarten to the second grade; Dr. Hawkins plans, if elected, to give a great deal of tfme to improving employment situation in North CaroUna and he hopes to establish an equal employment agency; he plans to provide for much improved and more housing in North Carolina and to raise pro perty value from $1,728 to $3,000 which is the federal level. In his stand on crime and equal employment justice, Dr. Hawkins wiU "seek to eliminate slums and ghettoes" and "guarantee and demonstrate that race will not be a factor in determination of employment." Attorney Henry Frye said in his speech before the audience, "This gathering signifies what is part of a new image of Negroes in North Carolina .... Following Frye's speech, he was asked, "What are your views on lowering of voting age from twenty-one to eighteen?" He replied, "It will be good to lower it (voting age) ... but not to age eighteen . . . should be lowered to twenty." Immediately another question was fired at him,"Would you favor a compromise that would raise the draft age to twenty and lower the voting age to twenty?" Attorney Frye only smiled and replied, "Yes."

Mrs. Webb is interested in working with interested parents and teachers. She said that the family has first priority~over everything else in education. Mrs. Webb also stated, "I am definitely in favor of having more Negro education courses." Retired Major of the U. S. Army, Richard M.

SCORE Endorses Dr. Reginald Hawkins And John Stickley Editor's Note: The foUowing endorsement was announced by the Student Committee for Research and Evaluation at UNC-G. We, the member of the Student Committee Organized for Research and Evaluation, are pleased to announce our endorsement of Dr. Reginald Hawkins for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. We cite the foUowing positions taken by Dr. Hawkins as determinates in our endorsement: We concur with Dr. Hawkins' suggestion to estabUsh a Board of Education Commission whose function would be to coordinate the various activities of the pubUc education systems of North CaroUna. We strongly favor better distribution of institutions of higher education so as to be of the greatest service to the greatest number oi people. Dr. Hawkins ". . . wUl bend every effort to have the most feasible institutions located at points where they can be of maximum service." We are in accord with Dr. Hawkins when he states "... that the various boards of higher education in North CaroUna . . . wUl have as empowered members representatives of both students and faculties from aU educational levels", for along with him we are ". . . gravely concerned about the smaU amount of active participation aUowed our teachers and students in the educational decision-making processes." We advocate Dr. Hawkins' stand which proposes ''the appointment of a commission, operating independently from any state-supported institution and any governing agency, whose tasks will include the evaluation of current educational goals, curricula, outputs, and future plans, and the sharing of their findings and recommendations with the office of the governor and aU interested parties." We firmly support the proposal for "developing one or more experimental coUeges, especiaUy for the culturally deprived and disadvantaged." Realizing the importance of obtaining all necessary funds for raising the standard of higher education in this state, we hold in prime consideration Dr. Hawkins' stand to obtain additional educational funds from taxes on tobacco and liquor. Therefore, along with Dr. Hawkins, "Let us also smoke and drink for education in North CaroUna, if we must smoke and drink in any case!" Having studied in detaU the edu cational platforms of each of the Democratic candidates, we feel that our endorsement of Dr. Hawkins is in the best interests of higher education in this state. As Dr. Hawkins so aptly put it "... in the future, if W. Lloyd Warner were to ask 'Who shall be educated?', our response would be ALL." We wish to make clear that this endorsement reflects only the concensus of the members of the Student Committee Organized for Research and Evaluation and is in no way intended to represent the opinions and beUefs of the University Administration, the Student Government, the faculty or the student body. Speaking for and in concensus with the Committee, we reiterate our endorsement of Dr. Reginald Hawkins for the Democratic nomination for Governor of North CaroUna. JOHN L. STICKLEY We, the members of the Student Committee Organized for Research and Evaluation, are pleased to announce our endorsement of Mr. John L. Stickley for the RepubUcan gubernatorial nomination. We cite the following criteria as determinates in our selection of Mr. Stickley: We firmly support the principle of open access as stated in Mr. Stickley's address of March 29, 1968 in which he said, "The basic principle underlying our system of higher education is that of open access, which provides that every boy and girl finishing secondary school in North CaroUna has a right to higher education." We are aware that not aU high school graduates have university potential; however, this should not exclude them from post high school level education. We concur with Mr. Stickley when he stated that "We must realize alongside the principle of open access stands a unified system of higher education with institutions of vastly different types. . . ." Realizing the increased emphasis placed upon institutions below the ConsoUdated University level, such as vocational and technical training centers, junior and community colleges, to meet these future needs ". . . wiU demand diversity within the system to fUl the varied needs of the state, industry, commerce and of all society." We are in accord with Mr. Stick- ley's proposal to take the Board of Trustees out of the realm of poUtics. Recognizing the critical need for qualified teacher in rural areas of North Carolina, we along with Mr. Stickley, advocate what is in essence scholarships for prospective teachers who agree to teach in these areas. We believe that Mr. Stickley's experience as past-President and current member of the Board of Trustees of Wingate College gives him a first hand insight into the problems confronting higher education in this state. We have based our endorsement of Mr. Stickley primarily upon his stand on higher education a subject which affects us directly. We wfsh to make it clear that this endorsement reflects only the concensus of the members of the Student Committee -Organized for Research and Evaluation and is in no way intended to represent the opinions and beliefs of the University Administration, the Student Government, the faculty, or the student body. Speaking for and in concensus with the Committee, we reiterate our endorsement of Mr. John L. Stickley for the RepubUcan nomination for Governor of North Carolina.
