THf4*5 RIGISIB "COMPLETE AWARENESS FOR COMPUtE COMMITMENT* VOLUME XLVII NUMBER 16 A&T State Univenity, Greensboro October 21, 1975 ■ - ii -a i r^^^^_^—^^_^_^^^.^^^^^^^^^^^^msAsSSs\—.^—^^^^s.*ms*^ai^^s^^^—^^—— — Attorney General Says: The Tribunal b Not Working By Maxine McNeill When the administration feels that a student has violated one of its laws which are essential for a good college education, something has to be done. The student who violates any of these laws has to appear before the Student-Faculty Tribunal. "The Tribunal, as defined by the Constitution, is not functioning," says Phillip Arterbury, the attorney general of the Student Courts. "The tribunal consists of the SGA president, Ted Mangum, a representative from the Men's Council, a representative from the Women's Council, and other faculty members. Arterbury went on to say that he feels that the communication Unes between his office and Dr. Waverlyn Rice's office are becoming a lot better. Also, Arterbury said that understanding between the faculty and students on the Tribunal is better. "The court system," said Arterbury, "is more efficient." He added that he was looking forward to a good working relationship and a smooth functioning of the courts this year. Arterbury said that, in the past, there has been a question as •to whether or not the judicial procedure was being carried out efficiently. He said that, in past cases, students claimed that they were not treated fairly. It was said by another source that, in this court system, instead of a student being innocent, until proven guilty, the student is guilty until proven innocent. .Arterbury said that he and Rice have communicated on the matter of whether or not the students will be granted all rights due to them under the constitution. Arterbury said that he has been assured by Rice that the students who appear before the Tribunal will receive fair proceedings. "I am hopefully optimistic that this will happen," added Arterbury. Rice, head of the University Tribunal, would not talk to The Register. He stated that he had given The Register all the information he intends to give and had nothing else to add. Four Awards Are Given For The Loveliest Floats The Aggies put on a show that thrilled spectators of all ages as they enjoyed a 27-0 win over Md. Douglas Deserves Recognition By Nicie Cannon He has been called "a colorful figure" but that doesn't begin to describe the personality of Emmanuel S. "Jug" Douglas,. who was recently inducted into A&T's Sports Hall of Fame. "You make vour way," the former A&T All-America seriously emphasized to a group of reporters at the press luncheon held to honor him and other former AGGIE standouts. "I feel that so strongly because nobody knew me here. I was a walk on at A & T when they didn't have many North CaroUna athletes." "Jug" walked i n and there is no doubt that the AGGIE family was aware of his arrival. The outspoken Douglas is never at a loss for words and doesn't hesitate to give honest answers; and candid opinions on all questions, subjects, and issues. It's hard to believe that he is also a poUtician. "I will be wiUing to lose with anybody who will do what I tell him to do than win the All-America who is going to do what he wants to do," Jug noted, giving his general attitude about coaches and players. He's a jovial character, forever smiling, greeting everybody in sight. He can add a punch line to just about any statement, with a tone of voice that's not quite loud enough to be "rowdy" but sufficiently loud to give everyone in the room a chance to enjoy his witticisms. ' Once you've met the man it is easy to understand how he could become an All-America in his second year at A & T, playing halfback, fullback, and quarterback. The versatile Douglas also played baseball and that included everv position except first base. There's no doubt he deserves to be in anybody's Hall of Fame.
