GREENSBORO DECEMBER 10, 1971 Students Faculty To Start Talking Photo By Mike Braye President DOWDY And FAMILY Wish The Entire Aggie Family A Merry Christmas 190 Prospective Graduates To Know Fate By Christmas Vacation By Janice Smith The Office of Registration and Records announced that there are approximately 190 prospective graduating seniors for the mid-year. This number is considerably larger than the 98 graduates at the end of the fall semester last year. All prospective graduates will be notified as to whether they have completed all university requirements before they leave for the Christmas vacation. Concerning registration for the spring semester, Dr. Rudolph Scott Surrounded D. Artis, Director of Registration •and Records, stated that the office is attempting to have mstructional__sheets available to the courses they need before returning after New Year's. Spring registration begins on January 6, but Dr. Artis noted that I.D. card processing will begin on the fifth and extend throughout the period of registration. Students will not be able to enter the gym to pick up schedule cards unless they show their I.D. and charge slip. He also encourages students to be more careful in filling out their cards in hopes that the number of errors will be reduced. At the end of this semester, Aggies will notice that the entire grade form has been changed. A new ready-mailer type will be used, straight from the computer; this will save time by omitting the need for grade slips to be put in envelopes. The form also differs from past slips by having an additional sheet which will be sent to the Office of Financial Aid so as to reduce delays for students in receiving financial assistance. If plans go as scheduled, grades will be sent home during the Christmas vacation. By Patrice Dunn "I feel that there is more a closeness (between faculty and students) now and I hope that this will grow to the point where it will produce a much more productive environment," were the words' of L. C. Dowdy, University President, concerning student faculty unity. Dowdy indicated that the academic environment was "not bad but there is always room for improvement. " In an effort to improve this situation, Dowdy stated that plans have been made so that faculty members will be eating in the dining halls, and talking to them in the dorms. The president also plans to entertain small groups of students at ^s home. The discussion sessions in dorms and dining halls are to include such subjects as economics, society, and any other area which the students feel like giving their views on. This effort of communication is an attempt to bring students from all majors together along with faculty members to share their experiences and knowledge. Dowdy feels that one topic which should draw great student interest and participation should be that of students being able to vote in the state in which they attend school. The president believes that since "a student pays for a service and he must work for that service or else not get it," then he should be treated as any individual who works in an area for four years. When the faculty and students working in small informal groups express their feelings on such ideas, Dowdy feelsconvinced that faculty-student cooperation and unity will improve and in doing so will improve the academic atmosphere here . Spring Improvements On The Drawing Board Student Sought By G-boro Police By Betty Miller John Zeigler, Business Manager, stated that the following capital improvements would be started during the 1971-73 biennium, physical education and health, physical plant warehouse, maintenance building, and heating plant improvements.

Miss Rhodes has indicated that she was visiting Gomery at the time of the incident. According to Wednesday morning's edition of the Greensboro Daily News, "She told detectives the two men forced their way into the room by pointing a rifle then took about $44 from her and Gomery." Two of the men that are Greensboro residents have already been arrested. They are Kevin Boyd Frazier, 18. of 319 Cumberland Street. He is held without bond and charged with rape and armed robbery and also Nathaniel Nash, 24, of 1407 Wayside Drive. He was held Tuesday in lieu of $20,000 bond on robbery charge. Early Monday morning the occupants of Scott Hall were awakened only to find their dorm had been surrounded by approximately 50 police cars. The reason is that one of the three suspects (the alleged A&T student) had fled into Scott Hall while his two accomplices were apprehended in a car that was parked in the vicinity of Scott Hall. These are the two men that were mentioned earlier in the article. As of Tuesday evening accordingto MB. Graeber, Director of A&T Physical Plant, the third suspect had not been apprehended. The Greensboro police detectives have indicated that they are anticipating another arrest. Graeber also indicated that it was discussed by students in Tuesday's University Senate meeting that Black males on this campus seem to show more respect to white females downtown than they do to their own Aggie sisters. A few isolated incidents are opening doors and 'the removal of hatsTo this statement Graeber seriously added, "Lack of respect isn't a value to any action." He also continues to urge law abiding students to become more vocal and not to become victimized by the crowd because "Education is a process of self-disclipline." For Students Only!
