9fa A.V &%>lte<fe VOLUME XXXVII, No. 11 GREENSBORO, N. C. DECEMBER 3, 1965 ^The Cream of College Nem" Enrollment Exceeds 3400 Mark Progress on the new dormitory for women gained momentum as construction workers spent their Thanksgiving holidays working on the building. Cheryl Derrickson, junior French major from Greensboro envisions the completed structure. Figures recently released by the office of admissions reveal thfct the college's total enrollment has climbed beyond the 3400 mark. Contained in a report entitled DISTRIBUTION OF ENROLLMENT, the figures reveal that there are 3253 undergraduates and 182 graduate students, or a grand total of 3435 students, enrolled for the fall semester. The large freshman class with 1152 members constitutes 33.53 per cent of the total enrollment and 35.41 per cent of the undergraduate population. Other class populations include 821 sophomores, 569 juniors, 557 seniors, and 154 special or parttime undergraduates. Eighteen fulltime and 164 parttime students are enrolled in the Graduate School. Besides showing enrollment by class, the report also contains enrollment figures according to school, department, major geographic representation, and sex. The School of Engineering boasts the largest undergraduate enifoll- ment with 1247 students. Education and General Studies, however, with its 160 graduate students added to its 1079 undergraduates has the largest total enrollment. Only five graduate students are enrolled in the School of Engineering, while 27 are enrolled in the School of Agriculture. Total enrollment figures for other schools are Agriculture 639, Industries 174, and Nursing 114. A further breakdown into departments and majors shovvs that most students are enrolled in social science (666), business (594), engineering (310), and biology (257). With 77.9 per cent of its students from points within the state, A&T remains a school of North Carolinians. A total of 2627 students are residents of the state, while 759 are listed as out-of-state students. Eighty-seven North Carolina counties 29 states, the Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia are represented. Fifteen students come from foreign lands. Although total enrollment is up, the boy-girl ratio has not changed significantly. It remains slightly less than 2 to 1. The smallest ratio is in the freshman class whose 669 males outnumber the girls by only 114. For all classes the figures shows 2136 males and 1299 women. 17 Member Comm. A&T Sponsors To Draw Plans Theater Party For WANT To Aycock Aud. Parkers Relate Life In Nationalist China By E. F. CORBETT If it lasts long enough, the conflict between Nationalist and Red China might be solved by amalgamation. That is the opinion of Mrs. Florida Parker, who with her husband, Lt. Col. Herbert G. Parker, and their daughter, Christie Lynn, 5, have just returned to .this country after a three--year stay in Taiwan (Formosa), the current location of the government of the Republic of China. !i Lt. Col. Parker is here at A&T College, as assistant professor of military science in the Army ROTC Detachment. Mrs. Parker feels that in the not too distant future the Nationalist Chinese, who fled the mainland in 1949, to seek refuge from the Communist tide of conquest, might become a race of people completely mixed with the Taiwanese, who have been more influenced by the Japanese culture. Amalgamation has been slower than would be expected, Mrs. Parker explains, "Because of calculated efforts on the part of the two groups to maintain separation . . . but the lines of separation are surely crumbling." She added, "Generallisimo Chiang Kai-Shek has often proclaimed that Chinese and the Taiwanese are one people, but the Taiwanese have not fully accepted the idea. The pace is being speeded and sociated with the Chinese, are becoming lighter, like that of the Japanese, as intermarriage increases at a rapid rate." "We saw a change in the brief period we were there," said Mrs. Parker. Lt. Col. Parker agrees in part with his wife. He added that the army of the Republic of China is a totally different outfit from that which landed in 1949. The sons often by Taiwanese wives, of the men who landed on those shores, following World War II, now compose the Army. Although they now call Fayetteville, Arkansas their home, the Parkers have strong roots in North Carolina. Mrs. Parker is the daughter of Dr. Miles Mark Fisfier, (pastor-emeritus) of White Rock Baptist Church of Durham, and Mrs. Fisher. She received her public school education in Durham and is a graduate of Denison University. Col. Parker, though a native of Arkansas, is a graduate of Durham's Hillside High School, and holds the bachelor's degree from the University of Omaha in Nebraska. An 18-year veteran in the regular Army, he was decorated for heroism at "Pork Chop Hill" and "Old Baldy" in the Korean action. Participating in continuous front line action for nine consecutive months out of the ten he served there, Lt. Col. Parker received a field promotion for his outstanding service and was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for Valor with Oak Leaf Cluster, and the Purple Heart. A seventeen - member committee has been appointed by the president for the purpose of drawing up plans for the organization, administration, promotion, and program development for Radio Station WANT. The student-faculty, college-wide committee has as its chairman Dr. Ralph L. Wooden, professor of education. Dr. Dowdy, in naming the committee, said, "I would like to look upon this as primarily a student project, with faculty assistance." Students named to the committee are Nicholas S. Bright, William Goode, Leroy Kirkland, Virginia Massey, Samuel Tate, James Thorne, Robert Wagoner, and Willie N. Watts. Faculty members include Mr. Melvin Alexander, Dr. Walter Daniel, Mr. Hubert Gaskin, Mrs. Lois Kinney, Mrs. Loreno Marrow, Dr. John Marshall Stevenson, and Dr. Jesse E. Marshall, ex-officio. Charles A. Mebane (top), mathematics major from Greensboro, and Haywood P. Dunlap, fine arts major from Winston-Salem, were among freshman donors who won for the freshman class a plaque during the two-day visit of the bloodmobile, November 22-23. Students from A&T College are invited to form a theatre party to attend UNCG's presentation of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" under the direction of Miss Kathryn England. The performance will be in Aycock Auditorium December 9, 19, and 11 at 8:30 P.M. Discounts will be given to groups. In groups of 10 or more, the adult as well as college ticket for this performance is only $1.50 instead of the regular $2.00. Recently, the Richard B. Harrison Players sponsored a theatre party to the Dana Auditorium at Guilford College. The party which consisted of James Wilder, Sandra Daye, Eula Battle, Thelma Walker, Geraldine Lucas, Willie Randolph, Billy Bynum, Dr. W. H. Robinson, Mr. James Porter, and Dr. and Mrs. J. M. R. Stevenson viewed two plays from the Theatre of the Absurd by Eugene Ionesco — "The Lesson" and "The Bald Soprano." Both of these plays showed Eugene Ionesco's attempts to point out the absurdity in human beings. He showed that life, or at least the way people live it, is absurd. Each day, countless people engage in conversation with persons whom they would rather not even speak to. They visit and entertain persons who have nothing in common with them. They frustrate other persons who seek their guidance and advice. According to Ionesco, the vicious circle, called life, is indeed absurd. After the production, the group was invited to the home of Mr. Donald Deacon, dramatic director at Guilford College. They "were graciously entertained by Mrs. Deacon in the absence of her husband. President's Calendar Reporters for THE REGISTER find it is almost impossible to cover all the activities of President Lewis C. Dowdy; however, in an attempt to keep the reading public informed of his activities, they have worked out an agreement with his office to publish his weekly schedule. The following is a brief run-down of his schedule for this past week. On Monday, November 29, the president left for the meeting of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools which was held in Richmond, Virginia. The meeting ended Wednesday, December 1.

On Saturday, he will leave for South Carolina, where he will speak at South Carolina State College in Orangeburg on Sunday. On Monday, December 6, he will speak at his Alma Mater, Allen University in Columbia, South Carolina. Also of interest is the fact that President and Mrs. Lewis C. Dowdy were hosts to Dr. Samuel P. Massie, president of North Carolina College at Durham, and his family for the Carolina Classic on Thanksgiving Day. The Massies and Howard C. Barnhill, president of the National Alumni Association, and his family were dinner guests after the game at the President's home.
