New Cafeteria January Eyed As Date By Delores Mitchell Aggie students all over campus are wondering when the new cafeteria is slated for opening. According to J. M, Marteena, dean of Administration, students can anticipate the opening of the huge modern structure around the latter part of January or the first of February. Marteena stated that it might be after spring break before the cafeteria can be used. This is to allow time to move the equipment in and prepare it for use. The current delay in the construction of the cafeteria is acquiring enough employees, stated Dean Marteena. The last scheduled date for the opening of the cafeteria was November 7; however, because of the lack of employees to do the job, it has been set for a later date. Usually, it takes a month for a building to become occupied after the final inspection by the state. When this inspection is completed, an inspection by the school must be administered. Equipment will then be moved from Brown and Murphy Halls. Some new machinery will also be purchased. As of yet, all of the new furniture and equipment has not been delivered, the dean said. The estimated cost of the building is $1,700,000, according to Marteena. It will be equipped with two freight elevators and one elevator for handicapped people. There will be no elevators or escalators for normal use by students or faculty and staff. The new cafeteria will have four lines on the first floor where food will be served. Up to 900 people will be fed at any given time. Students may also eat on the second floor; however, it will be used primarily for special luncheons and other such occasions. . A historic black-tie dinner sponsored by the A&T University Foundation Friday is expected to be a tribute to the University's supporters and a report on the $4.5 million fund-raising campaign. Dr. Alvin Blount, president of the foundation,said that the dinner was a significant milestone for the foundation, the most outstanding source of outside help for this University. Keynoting the dinner for 400 persons at the Hilton Inn will be Congressman Andrew Young of Georgia. Young first gained fame as the executive assistant for the late Dr. Martin Luther King during the civil rights movement of the 1960's. For nearly 10 years, he was instrumental in organizing voter registration drives across the South. He also participated in most of the historic marches with Dr. King, and Young helped in'thedrafting of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Marshall Colston, secretary of the foundation, also Vice-Chancellor of Planning and Development, said the dinner will serve as a special tribute to the University's alumni, friends and corporate supporters. A report will also be given on the current fund-raising effort.

Security Guards Placed Inside Cooper Hall Presently there are security guards patrolling the halls of Cooper as a result of the shooting that took place near Cooper Hall last week. According to Dr. L. CJDowdy, chancellor of the university, another reason for the security measure is that there have been some reports of "unofficial male guests" in the dormitory. There are plans to make Cooper Hall a male dormitory, according to Dr. Dowdy. Dowdy expressed his concern over the student reaction to the security and safety steps, published in the last edition of The Register, that are being implemented. "We don't want to close the campus to everybody, he said. In commenting on the check of unregistered cars on campus, he said, "The young man that was shot was from outside.'. It will not be until after next year that Cooper Hall will become a male dormitory again. It also looks like the new girls' dormitory is a long way off. Dowdy said that feasibility study has to be done before plans for the new dormitory can ber approved by the state legislature. Dowdy said that he had not had that much reaction from parents about the shooting last week. He said that there have been some people from the community who have expressed their concern.
