Stevens In a move Tuesday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the plan submitted by the UNC Board of Governors for the desegregation of higher education was rejected. The court gave a 90-day period for an acceptable plan to be submitted by North Carolina and eight other states. The North Carolina plan called for the elimination of duplicating programs in each of its 16 campuses, and encouraged racial mixing of faculty and of students. It was voted upon by the Board of Governors on June 8, after a Lwo-day discussion, with one dissenting vote by Julius Chambers. The submitted by the North Carolina and seven other states were criticized by HEW because they fell short of the general guidelines of acceptability. These guidelines include: Identifying effects of desegregation upon students and faculty; avoiding greater burdens for minority students and faculty than their' white counterparts at predominantly white institutions, and for minority institutions themselves as up of an official or committee to carry out the plans assuring that student attendance be based upon academic offerings rather than race; assuring that minorities have a voice in planning for desegregation. North Carolina was opposed to white institutions, specifically criticized because its Guidelines also included setting plan did not include the two-year Summer School Director Conducts Minority Study Black college students in an integrated situation face more adjustment problems than their white counterparts in a similar situation, the director of the A&T Summer school reported in Boston last Wednesday. In an address to the National Association of Summer Sessions meeting there, J. Niel Armstrong reported on a recent study he Students Evaluate A&T Food Service By Bennie L. Glover Boarding students at this university havemadeit a tradition to voice negative opinions in regard to the quality of the Food service on campus, although many are unaware of the planning and labor inputs that are required to produce a balanced meal. A number of students were asked their opinion of the quality of the food service provided on campus in the dining halls. Jimmie Winston, a junior economics major, stated, "It's (See Students, Page 3) conducted on problems of minorities in summer schools. "It would appear that Blacks experience more negative feelings than whites," said Armstrong. "This is a natural, for there is some evidence to indicate that Blacks are more overt with their hostile feelings, at this point in time, than whites." "Even on one predominately Black campus,' added Armstrong, "the most uncomfortable group was non-whites, even though that group consisted of more than 50 percent Black." Armstrong said that Blacks tend to feel best about their success in college, whites feel best about their being independent. "I believe," he concluded, "that the literature will support my feeling that psychological handicaps, such as the ones investigated, hinder learning. If this belief is true, every institution is obligated to find the avenue to better adjustment to college life." In his sampling in five locations in four different states, Armstrong said the Blacks had the deepest feelings about the police and judicial system, unequal opportunity and not getting praise. Whites, he said, had deepest feeling about others' not being interested in their successes and that expressions of sadness at failures are not genuine. and community colleges, and the technical institutes in the state. However, it was stated out of Washington that the plans submitted were "generally on the right track." The 90-day extension is one of a series of outcomes of the original ruling handed down by the Federal District Court in the Pratt decisions of November 1972 and February 1973, in the case of Adams vs Richardson. The original suit was filed by the NAACP to force the desegregation of educational institutions in view of the Nixon policy of easing up on enforcement of civil rights laws. When contacted for his reaction to the rejection of the plan, Chancellor Lewis C. Dowdy stated that he had not reached any conclusion on the subject. He offered to share the letter of rejection, along with his comments on the subject, with The Register at a later date. Arthur Cunningham, As He Appeared In Harrison Wednesday Evening.

(photo by Lance) The use of police officers in the teaching of driver education to young drivers can be an effective community relations tool, according to the director of the Safety and Driver Education Center at A&T. "Police and community relations can be enhanced by employing the expertise of well-informed police officers in driver education classes," said Dr. Isaac Barnett. Writing in the November issue of "Traffic Safety," the monthly publication of the National Safety Council, Barnett said:"Young drivers, who are i; an age group that has disproportionately hig! incidence of violations an< accidents, would undoubtedl; become better traffic citizens a a result of lectures by traine (See Policemen, Page 3)
