Listening to the Radio at WUAG

According to Stuart Smith, ttie
Station Manager at WUAG, more
people are listening to the campus
radio station that ever before. When
interviewed by the Pine Needles , he
mentioned how gratifying it was to be
able to walk down the halls of the
dorms and hear WUAG being played.

Yes, but what do the people who
work there, who program the music
for the campus, like to listen to on
their own time? We talked to a few
employees of the station and these
are the answers we got. At least this
time, Stuart was willing to name actual
groups he listened to, which was
more than we could get him to do
when we profiled him.

"On my own time, I like to listen to the
kind of stuff we play. I like mainstream
progressive, new music before it gets
the hell played out of it on Top 40
stations. I like constant music without
commercials. But I don't have favorite
artists. There are so many groups."
Scott Carper, Junior,

"Every station in this area has its
place; I like to listen to all different
types of music. Eari Thomas
Connely, Robert Palmer, Thomas
Dolby, Lone Justice, Phil Collins; it all
depends upon my mood."
Stuart Smith, Senior,

"I like what everyone else here likes
Kale Bush, O M.D., Debbie Harry,
Shade, Fishbone, Til Tuesday, Wang
Chung, Aha, the Flirts. I could go on
for a long time."
Roxanne Sumner, Freshman,
Broadcast Performance

"Yeah, I like the kind of stuff Roxanne
likes. Also, The Smiths-which I'm
glad to say, we're getting a lot of
requests for. Screaming Broccoli,
Kraftwer1<, and Dead Or Alive."

The aiuiual Twilight Lawn Concert, a
longstanding tradition at UNCG. was
held at 6:30 p.m. on September 17 in
front of the Home Economics building.
The concert, put together each year to
provide the university community with
a chance to hear the university's con-
cert groups and gamer support for the
School of Music's many programs, was
a resounding success. The first group
to perform, the University Concert
Band, was conducted by Mr. David
Owens. The second group, the Univer-
sity Wind Ensemble, was conducted by
Dr. John Locke.

"It was a pleasant evening on the
grass, with good music," said Dr.
Locke. "We look forward to doing it
again next year."

K^^^^^^ keeps his peace and doesn't complain,
K ■ which seems natural. Despite his uni-

K H que fashion sense, most of us never

notice him. When we do, we wonder one thing. Just who is
Charlie Mclver, anyway? Charles Duncan twelver was the
founder and first president of what was then known as the
State Normal and Industrial School (yes, we were actually
normal once) and later as the Women's College of the Univer-
sity of North Carolina at Greensboro. One of those fiesty Scots
visionaries so typical of the nineteenth century, Mclver was a
lifelong proponent of universal public education. To this end, he
wished to provide Higher Education, both liberal and practical,
to the young women of North Carolina, in the hope that they
could pass on this education in their future roles as teachers
and mothers (the idea that they might have wanted it for them-
selves was perhaps too radical for even a progressive like Mc-
lver). His credo is chiseled onto the back of the bronze statue.
People— not rocks and rivers and imaginary boundaries-
make a state , and the state is great just in proportion as its
people are educated.

An identical monument stands on the capitol grounds in
Raleigh. The two statues are the result of a drive that was
begun shortly after Mclver's death in 1906. School children
from all over the state donated their pennies to the drive. The
UNCG statue cost $7,000 and was unveiled on October 5,
1912. For almost 50 years it stood in front of the old Mclver
building; in 1959 it was moved to its present location in front of
the library.

If you think he looks abused now, you should have seen him
in the past. It was the student body's insistence on decorating
him with slogans and painted messages that lead the ad-
ministration to install "the Rock" in front of the cafeteria, in the
hopes that campus organizations would use it rather than con-
tinue to treat their university's founder like a billboard.

And so he stands, his stoney dignity intact despite the
ravages of of time and fraternities. Despite the toilet paper, he
looks very good for someone who's seventy-four years old.

-Ian McDowell

First Aid Draws National Attention

UNCG drew quJe a bit o\ national media aKention in the Fall oil 986. The university
was the subject of an Associated Press news story, a feature article in Rolling Stone,
and broadcast segments ol The Today Show, 20/20, and The MacNeil/Lebrer Report.
This sudden lluny ol activity came about a result ol North Carolina's controversial new
obscenity law.

Whereas the previous version ol the law albwed for the exhibition or disseminalbn
ol technically "obscene" materials if they were being used lor educational purposes,
the revised statutes thai went into effect in October ol 1985 contained no such protec-
tion lor institutions ol higher teaming. No one, as yet, has been prosecuted or
threatened with prosecution, but several aoministrators and faculty members have ex-
pressed concern that they might be vulnerable to any DA. who wished to set a prece-

In earty September ol 1986, an art exhibit by Chris Homey was temporarily
removed from display in Elliott University Center due to tears that it might be
"obscene." Communications Department laculty members Dr. Thomas Tedlord and
Anthony Fragola began to receive publicity lor the way in which they'd lelt it necessary
to revise their courses. Tedlord had decided, on the advice ol his lawyer, that his
popular dass in Freedom of Speech and Censorship could not be taught at all under
the existing legislation, white Fragola changed the subject ol an auteur film directors
course from Bertolucd and Fellni to Tmffaut and Bunuel. Pteading a heavy workload,
Tedlord managed to avoki rrrast ol the subsequent media spotlight. Fragola did not,
and as the semester progressed, the media began to treat him as a reluctant
spokesman lor the free-speech advocates who opposed the new law. On several oc-
casions, reporters interrupted his dass in order to tape and interview Fragola and his

Another person to receive increased media attention was UNCG senbr, Phil Mc-
Caul, president of Citizens Against Censorship, a campus and community t>ased or-
ganization dedicated to educating the public about their first Amendment rights. Along
with Fragola, McCaul was quoted prominently in "University Under Rre," the now

notorious artide that appeared in the September 25, 1 986 issue ol Rolling Stone.

Although they were only now getting major publidly, Cfeens Against Censorshp
had been in existence since the Spring ol 1986, when it was founded by a group of
students who had first learned of the law and Us possibte effects in Dr. Tedlord's dass.
Their first major success that semester had been in staging a concert lor First
Amendment Rghts, dutsbed first Aid, at the War Memorial Auditonum. One of the
bands that performed there. The Graphic, later alerted Rolling Stone to the CA.C.'s
existence. According to Dan Pearson, the group's first president, the reporter doing the
initial research was "totally amazed" to find out that there was grass roots and student-
Isased resistance to this kind of tegislalion in North Carolina Apparently similar laws
had been passed in other, supposed^ more progressive stales, but no similar or-
ganizations had spnjng up to protest them.

On September 25, 1986, the official oil-sale dale ol the issue containing the UNCG
artide, first Aid, Revisited was held in EUC's Cone Ballroom. This lollow-up to the
fund-raising concert ol the previous semester induded periormanoes by NRG, the
Graphic, the Alkaphonics, and Standard Deviation, as well as speeches by Tedlord,
lonner North Carolina A.C.L.U. olfidal George Gardner, and the Reverend Joe
Chambers, one ol the most vocal proponents ol the new law.

While attendance was not as high as some CA.C. members might have hoped,
the concert brought the organization needed money and publicity CA.C. president
McCaul brought them even more publicity that moming, when he appeared via live
remote on NBC's Today Show.

That is where things stand. The prosecutors and police officers charged with en-
fordng the obscenity statutes seem less than eager to extend their tegal battles onto
university territory, although it is njmored that some ol their supporters on the Chnstian
Right would like to see them do so. Conversely, members ol the academic community
have preferred to engage in seH-censoishp rattier than risk the prosecution to which
they are technically vulnerabte if they exhibit certain matenals. The court cases thai
could dedde the issue have yet to be lought.

Eating in the Cafeteria

We seldom love it, often hate it, al-
ways complain about it. It
doesn't do any good to have
students from Chapel Hill or
State or Podunk Community college tell us
that, compared to their school cafeterias, the
UNCG dining halls are palaces of culinary
delight. Perhaps we were all spoiled by grow-
ing up on home cooking: perhaps there's
something in the intrinsic nature of a univer-
sity dining service (or any other school facility)
that will always cause students to complain.

Not that everyone complains; student reac-
tion to the dining halls covers a broad
spectrum, though few actually rave about the

place wherethey eat 14 or 21 meals a week.
Some had their favorite dining rooms, some
thought certain days of the week were better
(or less bad) than others: everybody had their
and least favorite dishes. About the only point
consensus is that no one seems to have kind
words for the turkey cutlet.

Lonette Godfrey, Junior, Com-
munications Major: "I like the turkey pot pie
and hate the green bean casserole. Ugh!
Mondays are probably the worst for food.
What I really like is the Make Your Own
Sundaes. 1 usually eat in State, because 1 like
the atmosphere and know most of the people

Carla Smith. Senior, Fashion Merchan-
dising Major: "It's better now that they've
started the deli in Spencer. I don't know what
my least favorite food is— the chicketti, or
pork chop suey, maybe— the turkey cudet is
always gross. Tacos and chicken sandwiches
are the best. The food is usually okay on
Wednesdays, bad on Tuesdays and
Thursdays. 1 normally eat in State; it's got
the right social atmosphere."

Scott Brown. Graduate Student.
Broadcasting Cinema Major: "The tea is
nice. 1 really like the tea."

Beth Reynolds. Junior. Commiuiications
and Public Relations Major: "I eat here in

North because all the Greek geeks eat in
Cheryl Cothren. Sophomore, Undecided:

"I've been eating here for about two years
now. It hasn't changed much, though they
have added the deli, which is nice. The beef
stew on the biscuit is the most awful thing
they serve here, or anywhere else, I'm serious!
The taco salads are the best. I dread eating
here on Fridays because of the yucky fish.
Monday is the best day to eat, I guess— there
are fewer leftovers."

Judy Gossman. Sophomore. Business
Major: 'The food's okay, I guess. I like eating
in State. All the really boss guys come here!"

Anne Abrams, Freshman, Psychology
Major: "It's not too bad here, considering how
many people they have to cook for. I mean,
my mom has only to cook for eight people and
she screws up all the time. A lot of people
bitch about the food here, but it's usually not
too bad. In fact, for a school cafeteria, it's
damn good! Except when they serve hideous,
rotting burritoes that look like something
you'd find floating in a Tijuana sewer."

James Morgan, Sophomore, History/-
Political Science Major: This places really
stinks. Forty or fifty pounds of T.N.T. might
improve it

Cathy Brown, Junior, Marketing

Management Major: "I've been eating here for
going on three years now. I've eaten in
cafeterias in Alabama and southern Florida.
Compared to them, this is gourmet food. I do
prefer to eat in State because I like the people
who go there. 1 guess you just have to make
your dining experience a real experience. One
good thing now is the deli— that's a big im-
provement. Still, I wish they had more places
on campus like the soda shop, where you
could also use your meal card. And 1 do wish
they'd get rid of the turkey cutlet. It's pretty

Frank Deal, Sophomore, History-Pre-Law
Major: "I've eaten in other school's cafeterias.

Some are better, some are worse. Davidson
College's, for instance, is better than many
real restaurants. SUll, I think having a con-
tract with A.R.A. is just basically a bad idea.
You get dirty silverware and pubic hairs in
your steak and generally feel like a rat in a
maze. Things could be improved."

Dawn Mashwinter, Freshman, Dance
Major: "What 1 really hate is when they have
a sign up telling you what something is sup-
posed to be, but you'd never know it from
looking at the stuff. You just stare at it and
go, 'oh, really ?' I like it when they do the
desert thing, though— the Make Your Own
Sundae bit."

Jeff Batchelor, Graduate Student,
Theatrical Design Major: "I eat here in Spen-
cer when I just want to avoid everybody and
be reclusive and have iny food and leave. The
cafeteria really isn't so bad. Only two things
actually disgust me: finding old slabs of beef
stuck between two trays and staring at large
jocks who've shaved off all their hair except
for this offensive looking cap of fur on top.
Tlie dining experience would be better without
them. Of course, they'd probably say the
same thing about me."
