IViU'O REGISTER ...,.». w^ms, a/a..m CTt l~AUUITUCNT" "COMPLETE AWARENESS FOR COMPLETE COMMITMENT' VOLUME XL1V, NUMBER 28 NORTH CAROUNA AGRICULTURAL AND TECHNICAL STATE UNIVERSITY. GREENSBORO APRIL 20, 1973 700 Spaces Saved For Entering Coeds By Rosie Stevens Mrs. Lucille Piggott, associate dean. of Student Affairs, disclosed that approximately 700 women students are new freshmen and transfer students for the upcoming academic year. This number represents about half of the number of spaces available for housing women students during the current year Mrs. Piggott stated that this figure was based on an average of the number of women students who were freshmen and transfer students over the last two years. These two years, she stated are the years Cooper Hall was used as a women's residence hall. In reply to a question concerning a rumor that spaces were being held for white students who were coming in the fall, Mrs. Piggott stated that she was not trying to save spaces for anyone. The Associate Dean also commented on the pace at which the residence halls were being filled. The halls were being filled more rapidly, and many students were on the waiting lists of residence halls. There are always students on the waiting lists for housing space, Mrs. Piggott said , this is because there are seldom as many seniors leaving in proportion to the number of freshmen who enter school in the fall. However, she stated "As the summer progresses , if the number of freshmen being admitted justifies a downward movement, then students on the waiting list would be placed in halls." She clarified her use of downward movement to mean a drop in the number of freshmen anticipated in the fall. A&T Cluster To Fund Vanstory Renovation By Betty Holeman Plans have been made to renovate Old Vanstory at approximately $250,000. The first floor will be used for Student Placement; the second floor will be used for Planning and Development. The renovation will be financed by the A & T cluster. According to Marshall H. Colston, Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development, "For sometime the A&T Cluster has been considering the restoration of Old Vanstory Hall. We are now at the point where we can make some genuine progress. The Cluster originally thought to use the first floor as accommodations for Counseling and Testing. In the report of W.E. Jenkins, architect for the renovation of Old Vanstory , he stated that his "purpose had been to evaluate the prospects of using Old Vanstory." He said Old Vanstory is in relatively good shape relative for the time it has not been used. The cost of renovation could be reduced if there are substantial contributions of labor and equipment. After inspection, Jenkins said "I find Vanstory to be a pretty fair structure. New heating, plumbing, and electrical devices will have to be installed." He added, "Accordingto the N.C. Building Code-height and use limitations sections only the first and second floors could be utilized." Jenkins characterized Vanstory as an ordinary structure. He is going to seal off the basement and third floor. He said, "The reconstruction will be done in the house method." Jenkins has talked to mechanical engineers on campus, and they have agreed to do that aspect of the work and his price analysis. See Spot Run Run, Spot, Run. Hhoto By Conway Johnson Publications Deny Recruitment Of Coeds By Janice Smith Discrepancy has risen over an article appearing in the April 6 edition of THE REGISTER which stated that seven coeds had been selected to work in New York for Johnson Publications. Earlier this week, the guardian of one of the girls placed a call to the THE REGISTER'S office. He said that he had called Johnson Publications, publishers of "Ebony" and "Jet" and Chicago office and they had no knowledge of such a recruiting program. In a telephone interview with a REGISTER reporter, Robert Fentress, vice-president and circulation director of Johnson Publications, said the company had nothing at all to do with recruiting the girls. "It is not sponsored by Johnson Publications," he stated. He went on to say that there was no such individual as an executive director of talent scouts for Johnson Publications, and added, "We are not involved in anyway." However, he did say they had a branch office in New York but firmly stated that the office handled only advertising and editorials. The original article stated that some of the girls would be modeling and that others would get a chance to compete for parts as extras in the new "Shaff'and "Cool Breeze" movies during their 11 weeks in New York this summer. It stated that John Clark, a junior form Goldsboro, selected the girls after being contacted by the talent scout and that they were judged on the basis of poise, physical appearance, intellect and personality. In an interview last night, Clark said that he acted only in the selection process. He responded to the discrepancy in verification of the girls' offer by stating, "As far as I know everything that has been offered to the girls is fact." He also said that he had been misquoted in the article regarding the salary that the coeds would be receiving. He explained that he did not say that benefits from the job would include a salary of no less than $300 per week but rather that benefits would possibly include a salary of no less than $300 per . week. The article also stated that, in addition to a salary, the job would include paid transportation to New York, paid living quarters, owenership of apparel they model, the opportunity to be sent to charm school for high fashion modeling, the opportunity for parts in movies, travel to Bermuda and Puerto Rico for modeling assignments, the possibility of a contract with Warner Brothers, and the possibility of a contract permanent job. The coeds have received no other correspondence from the unidentified talent scout. New Cafeteria Slated For Early Completion By Betty Holeman Jerald M. Marteena, dean of Administrationjsaui that the new cafeteria will be finished earlier than anticipated if everything goes according to plan,in a recent interview. He said, "The contract calls for September 30th as the completion date. However, the contractor says he will finish three months early." Marteena stated that one must keep in mind that one contractor may finish and the other may not. For example, the electrical contractors, the heating contractors, and plumbing contractor*may finish early; on the other hand the ventilating contractors may not. When asked about possible faulty construction as being a by-product of such an early completion date, Marteena said, "Everything will be checked thoroughtly before it is accepted. State inspectors, architects, and college administrator:; will examine the site to see if everything is in compliance with state standards. He said, "The air conditioning, plumbing, heating and ventilating must be tested to see if they perform to standards." In addition, he suggested that, if the cafeteria is finished in time, it should be used for summer school.
