When I was student body president 00:00:00 - 00:00:04
the editor of the Technician, the editor of the Agromeck, the student body president, all three, 00:00:05 - 00:00:12
were school of design students. 00:00:13 - 00:00:16
And this dean, Henry Kamphoefner, had always instilled in us as students that we didn't have time to do anything 00:00:17 - 00:00:23
other than to be in the studios. 00:00:24 - 00:00:26
Again he was-I say this respectfully-you feared this dean, 00:00:27 - 00:00:36
and it's always been the smallest of colleges or smallest of the schools 00:00:37 - 00:00:41
so it's not like the dean of engineering who can't keep up with thirty-five hundred students. 00:00:42 - 00:00:48
Anyway, but we heard that Dean Kamphoefner had made a talk to one of the Raleigh civic clubs 00:00:49 - 00:00:57
and we were very thrilled to hear that when he made that talk to the Raleigh civic club 00:00:58 - 00:01:02
he had bragged that three of his students were editor of the Technician, editor of the Agromeck, and president of the student body, 00:01:03 - 00:01:09
so that was when we kind of realized, well I guess we're okay and clear. 00:01:10 - 00:01:13
