THf4'.f7 REGISTER V0LU1VI XLVII NUMBER 12 COMPLETE AWARENESS FOR COMPLETE COMMITMENT" NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL AND TECHNICAL STATE UNIVERISTY , GREENSBORO October 3, 1975 Concerning Vet School HEW Withdraws hs Opposition Marshall Colston CHAPEL HILL, N.C. AP-The U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare has withdrawn its opposition to locating a new school of veterinary medicine at North Carolina State University, William Friday said Thursday. After meeting with HEW officials in Washington, the Administrator Examines New Federal Position By Benjamin T. Forbes The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's (HEW) decision to change its position concerning actions to withhold funds from the University of North Carolina system came as a shock to many at A&T. Marshall Colston, vice-chancellor for development and university relations, stated that it would be incredible for HEW to betray Black institutions involved. Continuing, Colston stated that, if HEW has made a concession with UNC President William Friday without insuring that the predominantly Black universities in the state will receive equal treatment, then the decision concerning the position taken by HEW is still a matter for the courts to decide.

His statement was issued after meeting with Peter Holmes, head of HEW's office of Civil Rights, and other officials. Friday said he had also talked by telephone with new HEW Secretary David Matthews three times in the last 10 days. HEW, before Matthews took over, had threatened to cut off federal aid to UNC if it did not adequately respond to allegations of footdragging on desegregating its university system. The major complaint lodged by HEW was a decision to locate a proposed school of veterinary medicine at the predominantly white N.C. State. Predominantly Black North Carolina A&T University also asked to be considered as a site for the school. Friday also refused to comment on whether any commitments had been made for programs at N.C. A&T to compensate for not having the vet school. HEW's position until Thursday was that the UNC system had to give either the vet school or "a comparable facility" to N.C. A&T.
