High Point Enterprise, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1974, High Point, North Carolina By Forrest Gates Well its happened again another crop of sprouts has found itself a Mark of identification making me All the More aware of my own deprived youth the thing this new crowd has is called streaking i dont have to Tell you what that is because if there is one ounce of red blood in your veins you already have Eye Strain from looking at naked hides traipsing Cross your television screens j dont mean just one or two naked hides but whole Bunches with both ladies and gentlemen inside running around the nations campuses right in front of the police and everybody of course being past the streaking age by any definition of the word i am not taking a position for or against this new Art form it does recall to my mind however one of my mothers famous old sayings to which i resort in time of great stress she used to say everybody to their own tastes said the old lady As she kissed the cow which also applies to loping through the cacti in the Buff i figure but i do think that it is unfair that the Young people today Are Able to reach Heights in identifying themselves that were denied the youngsters of 30 years ago before streaking there was crowding into a Volkswagen started i suspect by the Volkswagen people to boost business to see who could cram in the most people we never could have done a thing like that in my Day and not just for the reason that nobody had a car of any kind to crowd into much less a Volkswagen boys and girls didst get that close except maybe in the drive in Between intermissions when the car windows were fogged and before Cargett Ingino there was protesting which allowed students to raise All sorts of hell on Campus including busting the Dean in the Mouth As Long As they could think up a Good reason for being angry either protesting was too hard of they got tired of punching out the Dean but anyway the kids finally gave up protesting except at Home in another Era students established their identity in the adult world by swallowing live Gold fish i am sort of glad i missed that one because i have trouble swallowing a dead Oyster much less a live fish but anyway i have to admit that even swallowing fish was better than what my generation is remembered for just those Damn Peg legged pants and Brown and White Saddle shoes being in the news reporting business i naturally have an interest in current events which of course includes streaking but you certainly Are not going to catch me out on no Campus waiting for no coed to Streak or do anything else naked there just aint no Way that i could convince anybody that i was a reporter doing his Job and not just a Runof the Mill dirty old Man what has happened Here with this streaking business is that another meaning to a word has been added to the dictionary its like the lady at the grocery store was telling me the other Day seems she and her husband had joined the biking fad another bit of to foolishness by purchasing a two seater Bike she was telling a Young male customer about How much fun they had had on the Bike the previous weekend we just streaked All Over town she gushed she of course had not reckoned with the new meaning for the word streaked the customer almost went into hysterics however you May feel about coeducational nakedness you must consider that it could be worse like in the news account last week about the Chap with the strange taste he accost women in the Park and asks for the time when the unsuspecting victim raises her Arm to look at her watch the scoundrel grasps her hand and bites off her Finger nails now that is Tacky students United by Streak week Bottoms bared at High Point College by Cathy Packer Enterprise staff writer student apathy died last week on the High Point College Campus and while it will probably Bloom again soon the students definitely will not forget the week of the Streak for one time the whole school is together for one time the dorm is empty observed one retired pc Streaker Why you cant get anyone to go to a concert Here it is the opinion of four streakers two male and two female that streaking is the Best thing that Ever bit the Campus Why do they run around in the dark without clothes its for our own enjoyment its crowd psychology frustration its Spring and perhaps because All the big schools did it the streakers agree it has been a proud week for pc for a school like High Point is in credible one said while their streaking turn out Only reached Between 30 and 35 compared with hundreds of streakers at some of the larger universities they figured that they were streaking at a definite disadvantage first of All there is no sense in trying to disguise yourself with any sort of mask according to the streakers there Are no quate disguises on the Small pc Campus everyone knows everyone else everyone knows they streaked but they Are proud Happy and in a thursday afternoon interview plotting one Young Man seemed to be the head of the streaking move ment he was Busy planning the Friday night Streak right after the Moose Lodge dance it was to be the grand finale of streaking there earlier streaks sprouted up independently and then merged after several nights of streaking the sport is getting a bit old they admitted but while the girls had retired the Fellows were certain they could get psyched for Friday its a lot harder for a girl to get psyched up one explained but then her one night streaking career was marred by getting locked out of the dormitory without Wilson

the Small school everything happens so fast she continued there is no embarrassment As Long As you keep running but girls cant keep up without bringing up the rear in obviously not tire most modest person Arounia but it was embarrassing when people followed me in to the courtyard and i was locked out according to these streakers who wore Only Tennis shoes for better trac Tion the Only problem were caused by spectators they reported entire families with Small children driving to the Campus to watch and cruising police cars spotlighting nude students posed of top of cars there were complaints from nearby residents about the noise and a massive traffic Jam but they dont feel those things were their fault they merely want to be left alone to a harmless Streak without any ruckus a freshman cited last weekend As the most Lively one Hes seen at pc a senior said there Hast been so much excitement since a panty raid held her freshman year changing warrant wording not intended to harm rights by Howard Hayes Enterprise staff writer chief District court judge e d Kuykendall or has said that there was no deliberate intent to jeopardize anyone rights when a magistrate and two Guilford county deputies changed the wording on a search warrant after it had already been served judge Kuykendall who supervises the magistrates said that upon learning of the incident he began an investigation and interviewed the parties involved he said that he Learned through the interviews that on Jan 9 1974 at pm a search warrant which been prepared by magistrate s m Mattocks who went off duty at 4 pm was delivered to Deputy sheriff up Leonard that thereafter at or about pm officers Leonard and Grady Bryant served the warrant and obtained a certain Quantity of drugs from a 1969 Chevrolet automobile belonging to Jimmy Wayne Motsinger thereafter at about pm a return was noted on the warrant and delivered to the magistrates office the executed search warrant was returned to magistrate i b Walker in High Pont who had come on duty at 4 pm deputies Leonard and Bryant searched the car with the warrant which was issued by magistrate mat Tocks but which did not con Tain an addition to said warrant made by magistrate Walker to include the car this addition was made after the warrant had been served and search made i have concluded that such action with particular reference to the magistrate was improper and that it was done either through Adver tence on the part of the magistrate who was not in formed according to my in formation that the warrant had been served at the time he made the addition about the car or through a Lack of knowledge As to the Conse Quence of his act i further conclude that there was not any deliberate intent on the part of any of the above that is magistrate Walker or the deputies to jeopardize anyone rights although i am of the opinion that since All of them were experienced in Law enforcement and procedures they should have known better than to attempt to justify any actions by an addition to a warrant which addition did not originally appear thereon this does not constitute any excuse for altering in any Way by any magistrate a warrant signed by another magistrate nor does it constitute any justification for any magistrate altering any warrant in any manner what Soever after it has been served the preferable prac Tice in a matter such As this is to Start Over and prepare a new warrant before it is served regardless of the amount of typing and trouble which May be involved i do not have administrative authority Over any Deputy sheriff Chichis the province of the sheriff of Guilford any assistant Public defender nor assistant District at Torney this office however does have administrative control Over magistrates notwithstanding that fact this office will Issue a memoranda to All magistrates prescribing procedures to be followed in the future with regard to writing of such warrants As a result of the altered search warrant charges against Motsinger which resulted from drugs being in his care were nol see changing on 3a t z is a sunday morning March 101974 page2a zooming rears Are just Plain ugly the morality or immorality of streaking Doest bother me because i dont even think about it frankly i belong to the seeming minority of people who Are tired of picking up the news paper or turning on the television and seeing Bare Bottoms on Parade right or wrong moral or immoral the zooming rears Are just Plain ugly Ive always held to the theory that if everyone went around nude then the forbidden wonderful attraction would become people in clothes As it is advertise that a Bunch of students Are going to run naked around the Campus and the professors townspeople and alumni flock in Masse to see the sights one College official remarked that if people turned but for basketball games like Treyve turned out for the streaking the athletic program would be in great shape another spokesman at Elon College said she had never seen so Many alumni return to the Campus As when the students announced a streaking maybe i have a warped sense of humor but i cant if or the life of me see anything humorous in the streaking conversely when i think of them a word flashes through my mind All lit up sick i think that anyone Over four and a half who finds a great Delight in running around nude in a Public place is some kind of sick second in line for being crowned with this term Are the people who run out to the campuses to get a Good look at them personally i would rather see a Parade of nude two Jearolds there is really fetching about a baby Bottom but a string of adults supposedly trying for the same effect sorry but theres no comparison i had a very interesting conversation with someone concerning the streaking the person thought like Many other people that the streaking Are just an Indica Tion of Spring exuberance the collegiate he thought that they were fantastically funny and refreshing i made the comment that i didst see How there could Ever another arrest for indecent exposure if these students Are allowed the privilege of running around Stark naked but he protested theres a difference theres nothing indecent about the students streaking around by Faye Marks according to him indecent exposure is indecent Only when its done with malice aforethought when the person has indecent thoughts beforehand supposedly the people arrested for indecent exposure plan i mean it in a lewd manner and should be punished on further to say that rowing one part of the body in that manner is sure fire indecent but that there is nothing indecent about be ing completely nude in publicity exposure he says but not indecent his reason Flag then i said lies in the fact that anything is Okay if it is done spontaneously with Nice spontaneous thoughts beforehand he said that i twisted things around like most women its the old game of Chang ing the rules of society to fit the occasion if you like the occasion then anything its Okay and All right and a lot of fun it would probably if you wanted to think about it make looting after a fire Okay it would be done spontaneously if no one thought of stealing the merchandise before the fire it be like someone breaking into a place with the intention of stealing the person i had the conversation with you might have guessed lives at my address we share the same name but hardly Ever the same opinions but it makes life interesting far More i would think than being married to someone who echoed my every sentiment he hastens to say that he Doest approve of the streaking but says that he still put them in the same classification with exposure i can and do i agree with the school principal who a Junior High school student for streaking through the gym in front of teachers and students and there lies the Crux of the matter to me if College students set this precedent and example the Junior High and senior High students Are going to want to try it too so where do you draw the line As officials of Junior High and senior High schools can attest there Are enough problems connected with keeping the schools Smoot Fly now without hav ing to contend with naked students running around too would you suspend a student for the Possession of Mari Juana but clap and laugh when he runs through the Halls in the nude you can agree with my husbands Point of View if you want to but maybe youd better not voice your opinion if you dont Hes still Glanc ing the blows of the angry women who Are mad about i his review of the movie Way we were he said that Robert Bedford was pallid and that there was no intensity of emotion in the movie that statement in spite of the fact that women came out in tears and some sobbed outright f j he didst like Robert red Ford he didst like the movie now theres indecency you
