TrlL&<7 REGISTER "COMPLETE AWARENESS FOR COMPLETE COMMITMENT" VOLUME XIX NUMBER 25 NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL AND TECHNICAL STATE UNIVEPSITY GPEENSBORO.NC DECEMBER 8,1978 N.C. Schools Cut Back On Out-Of-State Students By Johnny Thompson There was supposedly a dispute over scholarships in the Student Financial Aid Office concerning students from New York and New Jersey. Dalton declared that, "Those students have been 'phased out' under the Grandfather Clause Act. North Carolina has a reciprocate agreement whereby they are cutting back on out-of-state students." The New Jersey students allegedly apply for loans in their respective state, but.vhen they go to an out-of-state school such as A&T, they lose this award. However, those students still may apply for the other financial aid programs, such as the SEOG (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant), NDSL (National Defense Student Loan) and BEOG (Basic Educational Opportunity Grant). The director also added that because numerous students don't understand how financial aid works, there will be workshops set up after January 1. "I feel that the processing of aids would pro- abably be helped greatly if the parents could help. Financial aid (grants, loans) can't continue to be expected to carry the burdens of those with monetary problems. I would like for this aid to be more ef- UNC- System fective to the students, through computerization," Dalton added. Dalton feels that largely because of the efforts of Califano, secretary of HEW (Health Education and Welfare) and President Carter's administration, the national office of education won't finance funds for universities with high default loan rates. "That is why universities are being 'forced' to collect payment. In short, financial aid definitely has room for improvement at A&T and other colleges as well. Perhaps when America's learning institutions impro-:~ their financial aid organizations, students will be able to concentrate on studies rather than tuition," she concluded. «^*«*WW****aa>aawcfta3S**«*»(> I m Richard Petty,look out,it's only a matter of time before the"Kid" is uHeashed.

He is currently the Duplication Still Disputable Chapel Hill, N.C.-The longstanding dispute between the University of North Carolina and federal officials over desegregation of the 16-campus UNC System appears likely to land in the federal courts again. At issue this time is program duplication, an issue that has Coaches Taylor, Doolittle Resign Gridiron Staff By Dennis Bryant Steve Doolittle, the offensive backfield coach, and Robert Taylor, the defensive line'coach at North Carolina A&T State University this past season, have resigned from their positions. Both Taylor and Doolittle were first-year members on the A&T staff. The information was released Wednesday that the two coaches would not render their services to the football team any longer. Head football coach and athletic director, Jim McKinley said that replacements for the two vacant positions will be filled in the near future. (See Applicant, Page 7) not been resolved despite years of negotiations and a tentative agreement last Mav. Federal officials contend the quickest way to desgregate is to eliminate duplicate programs in areas where there are two or more state universities, as is the case in the Triad and Triangle areas. The university views such a move as an unproven, quick- fix remedy that will damage the university system. North Carolina told the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare last week that it will not close, merge or shift any campus programs to promote desegregation. The department has 90 days to respond. (See HEW, Page 2) director corporate trainer for Burlington Industries located in Greensboro.
