Milk and Egg Crates
Are There Any In Your Room ?
by John Irvin
Milk and egg crates stolen from
the Winn Dixie by Brevard
College students have become a
prominent issue on campus.
Shortly before the Christmas
break Mr. Kelly (Manager of the
Brevard Winn Dixie) called Dean
Scarborough about his milk and
egg crates being stolen by college
students and asked for the
school’s help in retrieving them.
These crates, which are quite
handy for stacking records and
carrying odds and ends, were
stacked behind the grocery store
leaving an inviting situation.
Although a large number of the
crates have come in the direction
of our campus, Brevard College
students are not the only people
who, find the crates handv. Mr.
Kelly stated, “These crates
disappear all over, where ever
there’s a Winn Dixie.”
Realizing that Mr. Kelly could
very easily press legal charges
against stduents having these
crates. Dean Scarborough got on
the problem uy putting “warning
slips” in student mail boxes.
These slips informed students
what could happen if they are
caught with these crates. As
some of the students may already
know, a number of rooms have
been searched and Dean Scar
borough said that all the rooms
will be searched by the resident
tutors. He also stated “I don’t
think Mr. Kelly will press any
charges because the college has
helped return some of the
The main brands missing are
“Superbrand” and “Central
Soya”. If you happened to bring
your own crates to Brevard
College, from home and they are
legitimately yours, it would be
wise to talk to your resident tutor
and have him make a record of it.
If you would rather not have
Dean Scarborough talk to you
about disciplinary action or if you
would just like to return any
missing crates, go to Mr. Kelly’s
office in the Winn Dixie and he
will gladly accept them.

Thank God for America. Thank God I am free to
move and to breathe, to live and be me.
Thank God that I’m able to have my own place
among all the peoples of this human race.
Thank God for the beauty of this vast land created
long ago by His marvelous hands.
Thank God that I wake up to look at the sun and to
hear the creek babbling along as it runs.

for the joy that living in American brings.
Thank God that I’m able to live and be me; thank
God for America. Thank God I am free.
