NATIONAL TEACHER EXAMINATION FEBRUARY 13 THE VOICE ^'^"DIGEST OF STUDENT OPINION” BENNINGTON COLLEGE DANCE GROUP FEBRUARY 20 VOLUME 13, NO. 1 FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, FAYETTEVILLE, N. C. JANUARY, 1960 Front The President's Desk Dear Students, As I greet you at the beginning of 1960 and wish for all of you a pleasant and prosperous New Year, I want to remind you of the theme of the poem by Ann Nurge and to urge you to “Count your blessings instead of your crosses.’ Too often we forget the many good things we have and enjoy and tend to gripe, complain, and in dulge in self-pity. Do you remem ber the man who was so sad be cause he had no shoes, until he met a man who had no feet? Any person who has good health and is privileged to be enrolled in college today should count his blessings. You should count your blessings at Fayetteville again be cause here you are able to get so much for so little. Have you com pared the costs of attending this institution with the costs of at tending similar colleges? You will find that the costs here are con siderably less and yet this is a fully accredited institution with a competent and highly trained fac ulty. Have you compared our dor mitory accommodations with those of other institutions? Have you compared our laundry services, our athletic field, our auditorium and our gymnasium with some other colleges? Many of our physi cal facilities are among the best in the State. Let us begin today to look on the bright side on every occasion. Let us be optimistic rather than pessimistic. Let us count our bless- , /'f oi v Yours sincerely, Rudolph Jones, President 1st Quarter Grads Congratulations to the following students who completed require ments for graduation at the end of the First Quarter of this school term (December 4): Jannie Bass, Rougemont; Elie Bracey, Jr., Garysburg; Gladys Byrd, Rocky Mount; Wilhelemenia Edwards, LaGrange; John L.
