It would be helpful to have all materials in before March 12. However), due to Spring Break, the deadline will be extended until March 31. After this date, no material can be accepted, because the distribution date is set for May 1. Money is in hand _ for the publication of Confetti; it has the staff to work on it. Now all that is holding up printing^ is the lack of sufficient material. Confetti will accept and wel come short stories, poems, es says, songs with vnritten music, and hiku. Edmonson, Porter, Stevens Are Featured In Sophomore Recital James Porter, Virginia Ed mondson, and Richard Stev ens were featured in the third formal music recital of the spring semester at Brevard College on March 11, 1971, at 8 p. m., in the auditorium of The Dunham Music Center. James Porter, pianist, is a pupil of Harvey H. Miller of the College Music Department. He is a native of Asheville, N. C. and plans, after graduation from Brevard College, to com plete his education at the Uni versity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and then teach piano.

Richard Stevens, a pupil of Joan Moser is studying clari net. He is unsure of his fu ture plans at the present. He is a resident of East Bend, N. c. Mr. Porter played selections from Scarlatti, Debussy and Grieg, while Miss Edmondson offered works from Mozart, Schumann, Strauss and was accompanied by a Woodwind Quintet. Mr. Stevens perform ed two solos; one i composi tion from the classical period, and the second was a contem porary French solo, accomp anied by Steve Arrington and a small Wind Ensemble, direct ed by Miss Joan Moser. Glee Club Plans Its Annual Tour The Brevard College Glee Club, along with the Chamber Singers, will go on its annual tour during Spring vacation. The 2000 mile tour will run from March 12 until March 21, visiting eight cities in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland^ Delaware, Massachusetts, and New York. President Davis States OH-Campus Policy When the Brevard College Social Behavior Code was adopted in the spring of 1969, an effort was made to provide in broad outline the behavior expectations of the college. It was assumed that clarification and interpretation of the code would be needed from time to time. Such a need has now Spring Vacation Begins Today Brevard College will tegin Spring Holidays today, Friday, March 12, at the close ,of classes. The vacation will run until Sunday, March 21, when students return to resume classes on Monday, March 22. arisen with respect to off- campus behavior of Brevard College students. For off - campus events spon sored by Brevard student or ganizations, the usual regula tions of the college are in ef fect as stated in the Handbook. With reference to individual and group behavior off-campus, additional comments are need ed. Although the college does not assume supervisory respon sibility for the off-campus be havior of individual students, the college is nevertheless pro foundly concerned that Brevard students conduct themselves ^ in a manner that is in keeping with Brevard's commitment to Christian values and moral behavior. While the college Cannot assume a supervisory role for off - campus activities that are not sponsored by col lege organizations, when such activities reflect unfavorably upon the college, or the stud ent body, steps will be taken to curtail or to correct such activities. When such activities involve questionable moral be havior, disciplinary steps will be taken. Because of the close rela tionship between the, college and the Brevard community, the administration is especial ly concerned for appropriate be havior within the town and county. Therefore, the col lege expects the same high lev el of behavior in the Brevard community as on campus. The Philosophy of Social Be havior states; “When in the opinion of the college the con duct of a student at any place is reprehensible or detrimental to the best interest of that student, his fellow students, members of the staff, or the college, appropriate disciplin ary action may be taken.” In determining what is ap propriate behavior, I would re fer you to the President’s mes sage found on page 12 of the Student Handbook. “As a church - related col lege, Brevard is concerned not only for academic excellence, but also for moral and spiritual excellence. Our expectations are for a style of life on campus that is unapologetically Christ ian.” These expectations also extend to off-campus behavior. I would call upon all students to conduct themselves both on and off campus in a manner that will bring credit and honor to our college, our student body, and to the homes from which you come.
