Belmont Alumnus Heads Law Class At North Carolina BELMONT, N. C. -- Marshall Smith, who graduated from Bel- mont Abbey College in 1941, is acting as president of his law class at the University of North Caro- lina. Such a position in itself is an honor, but for Mr. Marshall it is an accomplishment because he is studying under a handicap which would discourage many students. Mr. Marshall is blind. He was the pilot of a B-29 during the war, and lost his sight while on a combat mission over lwo Jima. Returning to this country for two years hospitalization, Mr. Mar- shall determined to complete his education. With the help o[ his ife, the Veterans Administration and his seeing-eye dog, Bretzel, he completed the requirements for a degree and entered the law school at Chapel Hill. Mr. Marshall's method of study consists in having law students provided by the Veterans Admin- istration read the necessary ma- terial to him. He plans to use a recording ma- chine in the future which will re- cord the lessons so that he can study them with his ears instead of with his eyes.
