To Speak In Chapel
There is a misconception floating
around the campus alwut Easter
weekend being a closed w^^^ejid-
it is not true. Members of Stu
dent Council have
with numerous inquiries; this state
ment is simply to relieve the Jrou-
bled minds of those misinformed
President Robert H- Stamey re
ported to the executive committee
that enrollment for this year is
493 students, and prospects for
the 1957-’58 term are excellent.
•'We expect another full enroll
ment,” he stated, and the, presi
dent recommended that four fac
ulty members be added, bringing
the total of fulltime teaching staff
to 29. In addition, two members of
the administrative personnel, Dean
J. J. Stevenson and Mrs. Iona Ber
ry have teaching assignments.
Because of increased costs of
operation and the need to raise the
salaries of faculty and staff mem
bers President Stamey recommend
ed an increase of $100 in stpdent
charges, beginning in the fall of ’58.
Edwin L. Jones, the chairman,
presided over the busy session.
In another important action of
the executive group, recommenda
tion was made that the college
board of trustees sell a tract of
land adjacent to the radio station
to the county as a site for Transyl
vania’s new health center.
This action will come up for fi
nal approval at the next meeting of
the trustees on May 3rd.
Approval was also given to the
construction of another staff resi
dence on the campus of Brevard
college near the president’s home.
This will be the fifth new home
that has been built for faculty
members during the past two
years. Approximate cost will be
$20,000, and it will be erected by
L E. Bagwell, contractor.
