Vote — November Statewide Bond Issue The Voice Adele Addison Soprano November 15, 1961 VOLUME 15, No. 1 FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, FAYETTEVILLE, N. C. OCTOBER, 1961 Lyceum Programs At Fayetteville State Teachers College EVA MeEACHERN Each year we look forward to the wonderful Lyceum programs that are presented here at Fayet teville State. The first one of the season was on October 27, 1961, at 8:00 p.m., when Nelson and Neal, America’s most popular young two-piano team, brought to this area a musical experience that will long be remembered. On November 15, 1961, at 8:00 p.m., Adele Addison, a rare artist with a distinctively beautiful voice and extraordinary musicianship, will be featured here. Her com mand of style is matched by few singers of our time. The Mitchell-Ruff Trio, who will be here on December 7, 1961, is one of the freshest and newest in strumental combinations to come along in a long time. They set up a colorful variety of tonal quality combinations and explore both old and new frontiers of Jazz. This group was the First Jazz group to perform in Russia. On January 23, 1962, at 8:00 p.m. we shall witness the superb music of the North Carolina Little Sym phony Orchestra. The Little Sym phony tours annually during Feb ruary and March. Through its an nual travels across North Carolina, it brings the world’s finest music to our schools and the public. The last Lyceum program of the season will be on February 23, 1962 when the National Opera Company, founded by A. J. Fletcher of Ra leigh, North Carolina, aims to give _Uie.-JUjblic .j.n opportunity to hear opera in English. This opera com pany has appeared in most of the States, and has given over 890 per formances from New Mexico to Maine, and from North Dakota to Miami. All of these programs will be held in our J. W. Seabrook Audi torium. Coronation Of The Queen EVA MeEACHERN PHILIP SHAW Margaret Gore, a Junior of Chadbourn, North Carolina, was crowned “Miss Homecoming” in ceremonies in the Lilly Gymnasium of Fayetteville State Teachers Col lege on Wednesday evening, as the students took part in the first round of our Annual Homecoming festivi ties. A vast crowd filled the gymnas ium to witness the rich pageantry of the coronation in which Miss Gore realized a coed’s fondest dream. She is majoring in Elemen tary Education and is a member of the Student National Education Association, Westminster Fellow ship, Sunday School Choir, and Pyramid Club, interest group of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Others participating in the cere monies were Carolyn McCullum of Clinton, North Carolina, freshman attendant; Hazel Clark of Scotland Neck, North Carolina, sophomore attendant; and Ruby Hagans of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, senior attendant. Homecoming Rush EVA MeEACHERN Thursday and Friday before Homecoming were filled with loads and loads of work—preparing for the Homecoming Parade. From Thursday’s dawn until the wee hours of Homecoming morning the members of the Float and Home coming Committees worked fer vently perfecting even the smallest details to make this Homecoming a successful one Behind all of this work is the true instigating factor, the spirit of our .students. There was a spirit of warmth which made the con struction of floats and the beauti fication of them not a task, but a pleasure. At the end of the parade, the stu dent body eagerly awaited the de cisions as to what organizations had the most beautiful floats. They were; Williams Hall, first place; Drama Guild, second place; and Hood Hall, third place. Bonfire ADELE ADDISON JOHNNY PERRY Carrying on one of the college's annual Homecoming traditions, the students held a bonfire on Smith Athletic Field on Friday evening, October 20. There were many stu dents, friends, and alumni that gathered around the open blaze, determined to cheer the football team on to victory. With the aid of the cheerleaders many cheers were yelled by the crowd. This spirit was continued by the crowd at the ' game the following day. Fayetteville State Pushes Forward The Secondary Education pro gram is expected to be in full operation by the fall of 1962. The program has as its ma.ior objec tive the training of teachers for secondary school. As planned at the present time, the work is de signed for teachers in the regular four-year high school or the sen ior high school. However, it is hoped that the program may be expanded to include training for teachers in the junior high school. The content areas in which such training will be available either as a major or minor are: English, Biology, Commerce, Fine Arts, French, Physical Education, and Social Science. The professional area will include such courses as Principles of Secondary Education, Homecoming — A Gala Occasion Methods of Teaching, Educational Psychology, Tests and Measure ments, Pupil Development, and Di rected Teaching. The program will be based upon two years of general education, so that normally students will enter the work at the junior level. How ever, it is possible that some soph omores may be permitted to enter the program. Such a program as this should be of great benefit to Fayetteville State Teachers College. Since there is already in operation an accredit ed elementary program, along with a vocational program, the addition of secondary education will further expand the educational opportuni ties here at the College.

Everything was beautiful and everyone was full of joy. Everywhere one looked there were beautiful floats and beautiful girls. There were about five marching bands and more than a dozen floats.

To increase their effectiveness and efficiency in this area, the members of the Voice staff, as a part of their observance of Na tional Newspaper Week, listened eagerly to Mr. Gibson Prather, Managing Editor of the Fayette ville Observer, who was invited by our College to speak to our student body. Mr. Prather spoke forceful- Fayetteville State Harvests Improvements While Students Reap The Benefits Visits Observer ly and informatively on the sub ject, Newspapers and Why They Are Necessary in a Free World.” After listening to his speech, the Voice .staff toured the Observer newspaper plant, where under the guidance of Pat Reese, a reporter for the paper, they were carried through each operation of the de velopment of a newspaper. Each function was thoroughly explained from the beginning of the paper until it is finally published. THE VOICE staff owes many thanks to the Fayetteville Obser ver staff—for now they understand that the process of publishing a newspaper is not an easy one at all. SENORA ELIZABETH DIGGS The law of probability says that no two people think alike. How ever, if we would stop and make an inventory of the many improve ments that FSTC has made re cently I am sure that our opin ions would not differ greatly. By way of educational improve ments FSTC has extended its cur ricula CO include majors other than elementary education and minors in the fields of music, art, foreign language, and speech. We now have a new speech lab oratory which is the most modern approach for speech correction. Foreign languages are being taught by soms of the best instructors in their profession. Also additional faculty members have been em ployed in other fields. (Continued on Page Three)
