More Feelings On Trustee Retreat To the editor: Tom and I wanted to share personal feeling with veryone as well as report the oings on of the retreat. The (irst most important hap pening” for us was that alot of mvths and stereotypes we had Zut the other groups at tending the retreat were Spilled. We found out that „e have some very con- cerned, active exciting trustees and that the ad niinistration does care about what is special about St. Andrews and not just the balance sheet. We discovered, somewhat to our surprise, that we were accepted on equal footing and that our criticisms and complamts were not only welcomed but actually listened to by the other parties. We were sorry that more students could not have made it to the retreat, and we want you all to know that your vote does count, as Tom said in our discussions. Another interesting thing to see was the community-the “we are all in this together” feeling that pervaded the meeting. Students are not the only people at SA concerned about keeping the college open and special and strong— there are many, many others with the same worries. Trustees and faculty and staff and students are not “strange bedfellows”, Tom offers, but people who have alot in common. And with the storms and problems facing colleges like SA, it is vital that everyone become involved- join committees, air your complaints and concern-and be willing to work together. Above all, the retreat helped to renew our belief that SA is special. Not heaven, but special. We have our problems, we have our differences, but as long as we can be tolerant of each other and care enough about the greater whole we can keep what is different, even unique, to use a well-worn cliche, about this place. In conclusion, Tom and I would like to pass on something we observed that happened right before the first meeting of the retreat. As people were milling around the outer porch, a dog lumbered up, tail wagging, moving through the several of us smiled as Dean Crossley remarked, something to the effect of. “We can start now- with the dog here, we have everyone at St. Andrews represented.” Cheryl Shapiro And Again! ^mm ROCK/NG CHMR Cinema 276-48M • College Plan SlM|i|iiii9 CM*«r NOW SHOWING!

EASTERN^EABORD IN ACTION (Photo by Kim Leland) uy iviui L^iauu ; y CHOICE Concert (continued) The concept of quality concert on this campus has been renewed. September 16th, a band by the name of Choice will be appearing in the main gym. They are booked out of Atlanta and are considered the leading unrecorded rock band. The group has played in front of Foghat, Peter Frampton, and Led Zeppelin. Choice recently completed a successful Midwest tour and has played throughout the Northeast and Southeast smashing concert attendance records at many major universities. Their stage show is con sidered to be one of best of its kind. Depending upon the success of the Choice concert, Pablo Cruise is scheduled to perform in the main gym November 15th. Again, it is important to mention that the success of these two concerts depends on your support. We have specific contacts con cerning the Spring semester, but the Spring depends on the Fall. In concluding, we would like to say that many people have worked hard and cooperatively to make this year one of the best as far as providing entertainment for the student body. It is very important that we have your input as well as your feedback and, . . . respect, things can be improved. Choice concert tickets will be on sale daily in the William Henry Belk College Center at $2.50 for students. Tickets will be $3.50 at the door on the night of the concert.
