THE BENNETT BANNER Bennett College Greensboro, N. C. '‘Believing that an informed campus is a Key to Democracy** WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 1968 BENNETT COLLEGE , GREENSBORO, N. C. VOL. XXXll NO. 2 Cassandra Feaster Wins 500.00 Jayvee Scholarship Jemmie Peevy Reigns Over May Day Festivities Miss Jemmie Peevy 1968 Bennett College Oueen of May is escorted to her throne by A & T State University Cadet Graves in festivities held May 4. Will Someone Please Tell, Who Turned Out The Lights? Cassandra Feaster, who pre fers to be called Patricia, was chosen by the administration to be the recipient of the Junior Chamber of Commerce's scho= larship of $500.00. Each year the Junior Chamber of Commerce selects one school in the Greensboro area to receive this scholarship. It is then up to the school to decide to whom this scholarship should go. The main qualifications, by which this choice is made, are that the stu dent must be an all-around stu dent, and active in various extra curricular activities. Patricia certainly fits this bill. She is president of Cone Hall, on the Marshall Board, Miss Bennett College U.N.C.F.,andis active in many other activities. Her hob bies are dancing and playing the piano, and she possesses that precious talent for winning and keeping friends. Conference Is Attended By Choir Dr, Isaac Miller, Mrs. Craw ford and six Bennett Choir Belles went to Dallas . Texas the last of April to represent Bennett at the Methodist Convention, which re sulted into the merger of the Uni ted Methodist Church, The six choir members, who served as our representatives, contributed their voices, along with other college representa tives to make up the All-State choir. There were approximate ly 120 voices that rang out and echoed through the Dallas Audi torium, during the convention’s pageant. Representing Bennett were; Jayne Cromwell, Jemmie Peevy, Kathleen Evans, Janet Harrell, Audrey Blaylock, and Carolyn McCaray. 13 Colleges Plan Cultural Trips The Thirteen College-Curricu- lum program struck home again. Miss Vera Fowler will hold top elective position in next year’s student government Vera won position of Pres ident of Student Senate for 1968-69 With its “student-focused” phi losophy, plans have already been made to provide more recreation for the 50 Bennett Belles in the program. On the 13th of this month, they are going to see the movie “Dr. Zhivago”, which is playing at the Carolina Theater. Then the fol lowing day, the 14th, they are going on a tri-city tour of vari ous colleges and universities in Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham. Next, on the coming Saturday, the 18th, they have tentative plans to go on a picnic. Among the places they may go to are, “Chimney Rock”, “Grandfather’s Moun tain”, and “The Great Smokey’s National Park.” Freshman Choir Proves A Hit On Saturday evening, May 11, the Bennett CoHege Freshmen Choir, directed by Edward Lowe and accompanied by Miss Char lotte L. Alston, presented an ex cellent concert of songs. The pro gram was divided into four parts and included love songs, Ameri can folksongs, songs of ihe sea son, and anthems. The “Hallelujah Chorus” from The Mesiah by Handel, arranged by Treharne; the familiar “On ward, Ye Peoples” by Sibelius, arranged by Lefebvre; "Great Day” arranged by Ehret; “April Is In My Mistress’Face” by Mor- ley, arranged by K. Davis; and fifteen others were among the songs that delighted the audience from the beginning to the end. Field Study Is Possibility In the near future there mi^t be a great opportunity for the ad vancement of Bennett students. This advancement will be the re sult of the proposed field study program which will enable stu dents to gain experience in their future occupations. Those inter ested in psychology might be able to work as aide in the psychiatric ward of a hospital. Journalism majors might spend part of their senior year as cub reporters or copywriters on a local newspa per, Sheila Savoir, a junior psycho logy major, is one of the patrons of this idea. She feels that this field study program will especi ally aide those students who will be unable to gain the necessary experience by going to graduate school. The experience gained from this field study program should more than double the chan ces of a better job and more pay.i Sometime soon with the coopera tion of the administration and the student body, not only education majors but students majoring in any subject will be able to gain experience in their chosen field of work. By DIMPLES ARMSTRONG Surely everyone has heard the joke, “Where was Moses when the lights went out?” Well,thaPs where the Bennett Belles were Saturday evening around 8:00 p,m. Everyone, like Moses, was “IN THE DARK.” As the girls used the stairs, it reminded them of ghost hunting in an old haunted house. As might have been expected, all male vis itations were supposed to have been terminated before the shad ows of night fell. Inside the dorm rooms, the only source of light was a “one-per-room” candle that flickered in the draft from around the windows. While the lights were out, there were quite a number of hideous deeds and mischievous acts performed. Normality was almost resumed after the lights came back on around 11;30 p,m. Monday about 3:00 p.m. the same thing happened. The lights stayed off only about two hours this time. But Tuesday, about 5:15 p.m,, the Belles were again put and kept in the dark until ap proximately 11:00 p.m. Now, Wednesday was a differ ent story. Up until now, the lights only have gone out when we needed them most—at night. But Wed nesday, it seemed as if the lights were going to make a whole day of it—then they went out about 11:00 a.m.! But, lucky enough, they were back on before dark. The funniest part about it all is that the lights in Cone saved them selves the trouble of coming on and going off repeatively. They just went off Saturday and didn’t bother to come back on. Maybe they’re just waiting for a better day!?? The worst thing about the whole business is that the ll^s picked a time when students have the most work to catch up on.
