The recent water shortage in Wilson has brought out
an important truth to the student*—that a harmonious re
lationship between the collejje and the city of Wilson is
e.Hsential. For without the support of Wil*on and its citi
zen*, Atlantic Chri*tian would suffer immensely; without
AC, Wilson would be minus an important factor in its
Wilson has proved its interest in our Colletfe many
times. Amonjf the most recent evidence of this interest
was the campaign by Wilson business men to raise money
—176,000, to be exact — for the expansion program. Even
followlnjr hurricane damage and extreme danger from
lack of water, the people of Wilson contributed heartily.
The interest with which Wilson residents support our
athletic teams prove* again that AC owes them a great
debt. Whether our teams are good or bad, Wilson is al
ways backing them and proving the fact with a large
attendance at the games.
These are only two of the many phases of our college
program in which the city has played a great part. Wilson
is continually proving its support.
In return, Atlantic Christian has played an important
part in making Wilson the city it now is. In a recent series
of articles in the Wilson DAILY TIMIOS, the importance
of the college to the business interests was pointed out.
Many graduate* of AC are now teaching in the county
and city school system. Many important personalities and
events are brought to the community by the college. The
population of the city has been increased by the large
number of former student.s who now make their homes
It i.s easy to .-^ee that the college and city arc depend
ent upon each other, even though VVilson cannot be called,
primarily a college town. Therefore, we, the studepts,
should do as much as possible to improve our relationship
with the city. In the time of crisis, as the water shortage
definitely i». we must realize that we are as much a
part of Wilson a.s is any resident and, consequently, must
accept the responsibilities of residence. Wilson is our
home during our college career, and we should do our
part to make it a city we can be proud of.
In answemg the call to conserve water, we are show
ing a great interest in Wilson’s welfare. It is such coopera
tion as is exhibited in this incident which will establish
the desired relationship with the city and bring the bene-
• of thi.>i relationship to Atlantic Christian College.

of the people on our campus. Well, I’ll tell you why.
Boy.x. very few of the girl.-- on this campus are used

girls to dance with when you go to the dances stag. It's

"Casanova.*" to come over and dance with them. When
people go to dances it's to dance. If they want to sit and

THE CRlXriBI.E. Arthur Miller's
unforgettable drama of the famous
witrhcraft trials in MJ•^^achU5ett^.
was a triumph for the Stage and
Script Club, when they presented
the play in Howard Chapel. Fri'*

AC had an opportunity to see some
excellent acting, good sets, and a
top directing job by Mrs. Doris
Paul Crouch "stole the show" as
he gave an unforgettable portrayal
of John Proctor, a man condemn
ed to be hanged because he would
not confess to witchery. Paul cap-
tured almost perfectly the drama
and emotion of hu part as he gave
a performance whose equal is sel
dom seen on an amateur stage.
Jimmie Burnette was wonderfully
realistic in hu part of Rev. Hale
and must be given credit also lor
a fine job. James Hemby as Rev.
Pariss, Gerald Hill. Charles Shir
ley, Richard Ziglar, Wilbur Heath.
Donald Fisher, Billy Smith, and
Don Weaver all were good in sup
As for the female side. Evelyn
Yionoulls and Ruby Wiggins led the
way, Evelyn, who played Eliza
beth. John Proctor's wife, did a
top notch job as she "jerked tears"
from the audience. Ruby, playing
Abigail Williams, the "villain" ol
the play, was good in her role.
Fine supporting stars were Bon-
ney Wilson, Louise Hutchins, Jo
Ann Moore and Edythe Fuller;
Magnolia Duckworth, Ellen Dennis,
Mollie Hester, Peggy Nicholls, and
Jeanette Scars completed the cast.
Mrs. Holsworth must be com
mended for her tremendous job
of directing. Especially was her
work splendid in handling the large
cast present in many of the scenes.

As Grandfather walks along, he picks up one of hit
finest pumpkins for Grandma to make pies with. Grand
mother shuts the turkey up to fatten hiip for what is to

that 'Thanksgiving Ls approaching.
Thanksgiving is not just a big dinner party, w-hen
Grandma displays all her pies, turkey, and many good
things to eat. It is not just a day when the whole family
gets together for the big dinner party to talk about old
^'^’^"Thanksgiving is a day set aside to be ever mindful
and thankful for what we have received and for what
we are about to receive. . ,
We have so many things to be thankful for. Some
times we really do not appreciate what vye have. Maybe
it is because we have never endured the intense hardship
and privation that many oppres-sed people throughout the
world have to go through. Here in this bles.sed country,
where we have many things to be thankful for, we are
.still not satisfied. We overlook the essential blessing and
seek to fill our lives with superficial comforts.
Maybe we could pau.se for a minute and look afresh
at some familiar words and mentally set them to music a.'
we read a verse of Henry Alford’s familiar “Harvest
Come, ye thankful people come,
Raise the song of harvest home:
All is safe-Iy gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin ;
God, our maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s tem-ple, come,
Rai.se the song of harvest home.
As we come together on Thanksgiving Day, may we
all be reverent in our thanksgiving and in the considera
tion of our “Harvest Home.” May we realize the full
extent of the har\'e.st we reap from the ideals of fortitude.
Godliness, and appreciation for the dignity of man, as we
turn thankful hearts toward the source of this essentia!
For the Lord our God shall come,
And shall take his harvest home;
From his field in that day
All offenses purge away.
