McFadden begau his duties at Brevard College the fall semester of 1956 and has serv ed his post well. He is an assistant dean of men and also instructs Eng- lis!h, creative writing, public speaking, and play production. He was born in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and attended school at Central Elementary school and K.>ck Hill High. Upon applying, he was accepted at Duke University Durham, North Carolina.

His stirring messages, private conferences, and participation in small gatherings have truly been inpirational.

Amen. —George Washington, From a Bird’s F.ye . Say, are you aware of the fact that this little world is a right won derful place? Did you get that certain feeling too, as you watch ed the movie in chapel last week on our lucky ole’ sun? (who is be coming fairly neighborly again— by the way) Tho it was but a clev er and interesting movie and Fa ther Time was merely a “Scrooge- like” figment of the imagination, the gnarled little fellow with the scythe caused a nice warmth to spread over me when he converted into a spoken statement the ever present fact in evidence all around us, that someone surely MUST love us a great deal! It caused me, when I found myself out-of-doors in the sunlight, to look up into that blue, white-streaked, and furled canopy — feeling glad that I could behold the richness of it and know the sun was shining, al though couldn’t quite meet his bright, confident glare. To look up into that broad expanse of blue— with nothing else in sight above except the'peacefulness of it — causes one to realize why birds seem to enjoy their life of soaring flight and why men sought for ages and still seek, means by why which they can fly and explore the heavens. It’s so FREE up there! I suppose perhaps that would be one of the most important reasons why. Quite a few folks on campus, and Sue Jackson in particular, ex hibited absolutely exhausted, but patient and somehow radiant coun tenances late Friday afternoon. They had finally collected all the little “odds and ends” of our Per- telote, bundled them up into their respective brown envelope* and ! »eiit them oa their way with a blessing to the publishing' house. None could be more faithtful than have been Sue and her staff in editing this year’s Pertelote. We can hardly wait until this spring to see the results! Several little birds whispered to me that —■ while flitting over a part of “Ye Davidson River”—they heard a slight splash. T’was only “Lou”, who, taking advantage of the warmer weather, had ‘ventur ed too near the water”. . .! While speaking of “Lou” . . . we would like to welcome “Lou’s” new roommate — Joanne Smart, a “cute little black-haired girl” to our campus, (which is now hers al so!) in McFadden took an active part in many extra-curricular activities at the university. He was the make up director for the Dramatic Or ganization his junior and senior years. He also took part in many of the plays at the university. He received his AB degree in English and secondary education in 1950. After two years in the army he worked for nine months in the Armed Forces Medical Library, Washington. Since September of 1953, Mr. McFadden has been on the faculty of Fort Union Military Academy, Va., as English instruc tor. For the last three summers, he has been working for his MA de gree in English and Dramatics. He Will receive his degree in August. Asked about his work here at the college, Mr. McFadden replied, “I find the faculty administration friendly and co-operative and all seem to be interested in the bet terment of the college.” When ask ed about the students he stated, “I like all the students and the fact that they are so friendly makes for a better student body.

The sun grinned its July ^m. Cars ground by like stupid cattle. A little boy with hair like straw huddled on the curb. He leaned out a dirty hand and patted the lifeless heap.

SAVE YOUR CONFEDERATE MONEY, BOYS lector — is erate dollar bills are getting mighty hard to come by. He says a Confederate dollar in good condition now will bring two United States dollars and some times more. Lawrence says those crazy Yan kee tourists have been known to pay as high as $7.50 for a single Confederate dollar. And a $2 Confederate bill with a picture of Judah P. Benjamin on it is worth $3 in U. S. currency. A $5 bill — that’s the one with the picture of the Confederate capi- tol at Richmond — is worth as much as $7.50. But the bills have to be in good shape, Lawrence says.

Mr. McFadden sings in the Civic Chorus and is also a member of the Brevard Davidson River Church. He is at present in the process of writing a book. He likes the beach and likes to go to New York at least once a year to “catch-up” on some plays. His fav orite actors and actresses are Ty rone Power, Rock Hudson, Barbara Stanwick, and Bette Davis respec tively. Mr. McFadden claims his happi est moment was when he was ac cepted at Duke and the honor of receiving a scholarship.
