BILL BE.ACHAM (From The WUson Dally Tlmeii) Bill Beacham, Atlantic Christian college’s 6-7^4 sophomore center from Itocky Mount, was nam^ to the Greensboro Daily News W - North State Conference basketbaU team last week. The lean 207-pounder, the Ullest man on this year's All-SUr squad, is one of three sophomores to make the team. One freshman. Raeford Wells of Lenoir Rhyne, was named, and three juniors and three seniors made the club. u x i, Beacham joined Coach Jack Mc- Comas’ Bulldogs at midseason last year and immediately Ijegan showing promise of ®, **?/; He had Just served a hitch in me Army, where he made a name for himself In West Coast service ba»- This season, Beacham Atlantic Christian into a fourth plfc^ finish in the No^ SUte putting the Bulldog* in the annua conference tournament for the first Lime iu ^our years. He was the team’s leading scor- er, with 292 poinU in 2* games for a 12.2 average, and w a s a standout on backboard pUy. Several wit-ks of planning and work were culminated Thursday evening, February 11, with the election of offlcer.s by the newly organized Veterans Club. The officers electi'd were Arthur Dail, Commander; Cecil Willis, vice Commander; Leroy Batts, Adju tant; Ashton Wi^,^. Publii. Iniunn- ation Officer; Paul Hill, Finance Officer; and Darrell Huffman, Chaplain. The slate of officers Is similar to that of the American Legion and other veterans organ izations. In comparing the Veter ans Club officers with those of oth er student organizations on the campus, the office of Commander is comparable to the office of Presi dent: the Vice Commander to the Vice President; the Adjutant to the Secretary and the Finance of ficer to the Treasure. The offices of Chaplain and Public Informa tion Officer are, by their titles, self explanatory. The newly elected officers are now in the process of drafting a constitution and set of by-laws for the club. To assist and guide them in this, Adjutant Leroy Batt* has requested organizational informa tion from veterans clubs at State, Carolina, Wake Foest, East Car olina and several other colleges in North Carolina. Veterans clubs were active on college campuses throughout the country in the year* immediately following World War II. As many veterans completed their college work and the number of veterans enrolled in college decreased, the activity and influence of veterans (■lulw receded in proportion. With the number of veteran itudent* on the increase as a result of the Korean conflict, veterans club* are again becoming active.
