High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 19, 1972, High Point, North Carolina With help from some friends private colleges can survive Raleigh a private colleges and universities can survive the present financially perilous times to remain a vital element in the nation s dual system of higher education. It will take help from friends said or. John Edgar Weems As Well As astute management on the private campuses. A the private institutions provide alternatives open More potential and give a wider response to Public demand a he said. A they have a future As Long As there Are those who believe in the values they give to our he brings that Confidence and optimism to the presidency of Meredith Cal lege a Baptist supported Liberal arts Campus for women. Meredith trustees selected or. Weems last fall As the sixth president for the 73-year-old College. Formal inauguration will come Friday although he has been in office s nce Jan. I. He came out of Public higher education and a coeducational situation to take the position. A tennessean he was vice president for finance and administration at Middle Tennessee state University in Murfreesboro. The move was a return rather than introduction to North Carolina for the Weems family. Late in the �?T50s, he was at Atlantic Christian College in Wilson for three years. He taught business administration and economics also serving As director of admissions and placement and director of student personnel services. Administration and financial management is his specially. He spent a couple of years in the executive training program of a major Industry before making education his career Choice. He earned his doctorate degree at George Peabody College in Nashville tenn., in higher education administration. A higher education is big business. The products turned out Are very different but the allocation of resources to achieve desired results is fundamental to he said. That does no to mean running a colleges All computers and Cost pricing. The human element a the aspirations of students and faculty the commitment of staff and administrators a remains Paramount. The Weems approach Aims for rapport with people. He does no to talk to visitors across the big desk in the president s office. He comes around to an easy chair stepping away from the seat of authority to meet them at their level. The executive a p p u r t e a ances can by a psychological crutches a propping up the ego but impeding the exercise of leadership he explained. A i m careful of them. If i detect i am using one i get rid of it a he said. Fanfare and status symbols he observed get in the Way of dealing directly with people and calling Forth their Best ideas and performance. That a his View of what being a College president is All about a not that he a the most eminent scholar keenest financial mind or Cleverest Public relations operator on Campus but that he can Weld the talents of faculty staff and students to serve the institution. At 40, Weems does t need crutches of any sort. A a he a 6-3 and fit from a lifetime of interest and participation in athletics. H i s background qualifies him As an administrator of ability and innovation. He will put on academic regalia for the inaugural but the pageantry will last but a Day. Then hell be Back at his tasks without Benefit of show or ceremony. Or. Weems takes the Helm of a College that is atypical in private higher education. Meredith has been cited nationally for its sound financial position at a time when Many others Are in trouble. Enrolment is steady at the 1,200 limit set by trustees. A $5 million capital Campaign initiated under his predecessor or. E. Bruce Heilman is near its goal.

According to statistics released by the local office of the employment Security commission and the Bureau in Lexington the rate of unemployment in the county for july was 1.3 per cent less than half the 28 per cent recorded the same month last year. More current figures Are not yet available but the managers of the two employment offices expect the rate for August to be even less. W. R. Eddinger manager of the Bureau Here put the Job situation this Way a it in t a matter of not having Job he said. A ifs a matter of not having people to Send to prospective employers a records filed with the employment office Bear out Eddinger s observation. In june of this year the Bureau took applications from 185 persons. The figure for july dropped to 112. A these local Industrial plants Are recruiting like the army a Eddinger explained. Quot the people management go out and say to the employees you know a fellow who wants a Job. Bring him by. Well put him to a in Lexington Bureau manager Alan Knight gives much the same report.

Knight continued Are Quot vastly improved compared to last year. In August 1972, when the unemployment rate was Over four per cent the Lexington Industrial establishment was still feeling the effects of two shutdowns. Erlanger and Burlington two textile plants had just closed. The two companies did reopen Erlanger under a new management but on a smaller scale and Burlington in furniture manufacturing instead of textiles. Neither company however. Is operating at the same level it operated at last year. Erlanger a new operation does not require As Many personnel As the one before and the Burlington Plant produces on a More limited scale than it did when it was making textiles. The generally improved conditions Knight explained have been developing Over the past two years. He noted that outside of factory labor the construction Industry has shown marked strength. A there seems to be a lot of construction going Knight said. A there seems to be a lot of construction work. All the available people who follow that Type of Industry Are finding Eddinger echoed Knight s assessment saying the Only real depressed spot occurs in the female employment indexes. He said the number of women finding jobs has increased.

Quot first parents who believe in the difference we provide must Send their children to he said. Analysis of the Cost will show the disparity with Public institutions is not All that great at least not at Meredith he added. Second other friends a Industry and individuals a must continue to give support. He said. State Aid. While beneficial should not become a mainstay As he sees it.
