If so, you will have the opportunity because a weekend of serious business is slated to be held at A & T March 16-18 if plans go according to schedule. Student Government Association President Larry Hinton, recently attended a steering committee meeting for the Save the Black Schools Convention This meeting was held at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg. Over 500 delegates from across the country attended this meeting. The purpose of this convention was to develop some type of national plan by which the control of Black schools will remain in the hands of Goode Sees No Change In Student Courts By Aurelia Curley Will there be any changes made in the student courts? Col. William Goode, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, answered, "There will be no change made in the student court until the Student Legislature is elected and advises the student court of a change in the judiciary procedure." Col. Goode further stated that there had been no students elected to the legislature to his knowledge. The student legislature is composed of thirty-four members, who are elected at a single annual election held in the spring of the school year to serve for one academic year. Its job is to make the laws for the courts. The attorney general whose job is to prosecute offenders enacts the new laws for the courts. In order for the Attorney General to fulfill his job, he is to assist and represent the President in the performance of his duties as the President directs. He is to investigate, gather evidence and prosecute any offenders of aie Student Constitution. He is to meet with the University Tribunal. He is given cases by Col. Goode to be tried in the student court. Col. Goode receives all charges made by the staff, faculty and students. The attorney general reports to Col. Goode the action taken on the cases. "In this category," Commented Col. Goode , "the attorney general has not fulfilled his job." Col. Goode concluded by saying "There is not enough time for the judiciary system adopted by the students to work successfully. It would take a full-time staff." Blacks. Also this convention hopes to help Blacks maintain their identity. Twelve schools were represented at this steering committee meeting. This number included Bennett College, Howard University, Arkansas A & M. Washington Tech, Claflin. College, South Carolina State, Virginia State. Spellman and Souther: University. As Hinton recalled, they were definitely against A&T as the site for the national convention. Hinton stated, 'I had to fight like a demon to get that Convention here.' He went to South Carolina with a definite program and format. Hinton said that he persuaded them that A&T had something very valuable to offer and that the student body would support the convention. During that weekend, (Continued On Page 11) High Tuition Costs Force Students Out By Constance Johnson Tuition increases ? Financial difficulties? Sickness? Health? Boredom? These and any other number of reasons aX>uld be the circumstances surrounding an apparent loss of out-of-state Aggies, stated Mrs. G. C. Bullock of the Registrar's Office. Although statistical information is not available or a definite reason pinpointed as to why an increasing number of out-of-state students never return, the obvious reason seems to be the ever increasing tuition rates. Out-of-state students for the 1972.-73 school term are faced with total charges of $1,418.75, whereas N.C. residents pay only $644.25 per semester. The in-state, out-of-state status is determined at the time of initial application and acceptance of the student. "The student who graduates from an out-of-state high school is automatically presumed an out-of-state-student,' stated W. H. Gamble, director of admissions. In order to change the resident status, the student must present written proof: employment records, tax returns and _the_official data for a 12-month period for the state of N.C. For 18 year olds, who are considered adults, in-state status can be obtained only if the student remains out of school for a one-year period in order to establish residency. Thus this student cannot be claimed on any other person's tax forms, thereby declaring himself totally independent. As for married students, the female can obtain residency if her spouse is a North Carolina native, but this does not apply for out-of-state males who marry North Carolina residents. Recent controversy over out-of-state in-state status has brought about the introduction of a new bill in the Senate by Senator Bobby Barker, Democrat-Wake County making it easier for new residents of North Carolina to qualify for in-state i tuition rates in public universities. As to another increase in tuition, Gamble foresees none, in that tuition control is no longer controlled by Campus authority but rather by the State Board of Governors.
