Make Every Minute Count
In the rapidly changing world and dynamic society we are now living
in, we cannot afford to waste even one precious minute. We have heard
the saying “Time marches on.” I hope this suggests the same idea to
you as it does to me. That idea is: if time marches on, I have to do
more than march because I have to have some time to sleep and time
You may say to yourself, “I do not want to keep up with time, I just
vi^t to be myself.-^ If so, take'** few minutes out to think and ask
yourself one question: “Why am I here at Fayetteville State Teachers
College?” If the answer is to keep up with the Joneses, I take pride in
telling you that you are in the wrong place and have the wrong idea.
We are here to better ourselves, help our fellowmen, build our com
munities, and serve our country. This we cannot do if we waste time.
Here, the question of what we can do so that we may not waste time
may occur. First, we can take self inventory. “Was that minute spent
so as to help me move further toward my goals or aims?” If the
answers to such questions are negative, that means a minute was wast
ed, and we cannot afford to waste even one.
Second, we must concentrate on doing something about the situation.
Let us try elimination. Gossiping idly does not help nor does “railology”
have a place in our curriculum. So the only possible solution is to spend
more time doing research and studying. Encourage Mary to do the
same, so she will not get lonesome while you are working.

From The Students’
Point Of View
“I am very happy that I have
chosen Fayetteville State Teach
ers College to complete my educa
tion. While attending New York
University from which I transfer
red, I had the idea that college
faculties and students did not care
whether or not a student was at
tending their college. It was not
until I became enrolled at Fayette
ville State Teachers College that
I realized that teachers actually
take an interest in the students.
It was also here that I learned that
fellow students can be very con
“FayetteviUe State Teachers
College is one of the greatest col
leges in North Carolina. The stu
dent body and faculty are of the
best quality found anywhere.
Therefore our college can’t help
being the greatest.”
—Delories Shavers, Sophomore
“I think that Fayetteville State
is swell, but at all institutions there
is room for improvement. Freedom
of speech, I feel, is not practiced
here as stipulated by certain
people. Don’t misunderstand me
now, I mean freedom as long as
the statement does not infringe
upon the rights of others. I also
feel that certain students are over
worked because of the lack of ini
tiative on the parts of others.”
—Calvin Gay, Junior
“I think that Fayetteville State
Teachers College is a great insti
tution. There is a strong “student-
teacher” relationship on the cam
pus that I never knew existed.”
—Robert McMillan, Freshman
I Saw It
During Freshman Orientation
Week I observed many bewildered
students. Some of those with whom
I talked said they had imagined
it would be difficult for them to
adjust to the new environment.
They also stated that previously
they had the impression that the
instructors would never spend
any time trying to help them solve
the problems confronting students.
But oh! how surprised the students
were to leam that any time they
needed advice they could make
arrangements to have conference
with their instructors. One student
said, “As a result of my first week
here at Fayetteville State Teach
ers College, this wiU be the most
enjoyable four years of my life.”
I am sure that the rest of the
college freshmen will agree with
There was a tremendous crowd
on hand during the Homecoming
Weekend. Among the special cam
pus guests seen rooting for the
Broncos were: Mrs. Sally Jones
of Winton, North Carolina, sister
of President Rudolph Jones; Dr.
J. W. Seabrook, former president
of FSTC, and his wife, Mrs. M. H.
Seabrook, formerly a professor in
the Science Department of the col
lege; our former dean. Dr. Lafay
ette Parker, and his wife, both
teaching at Winston-Salem Teach
ers College; members of the Met
ropolitan Basketball Club (FSTC
alumni—New Jersey and New York
Chapters); and scores of other
alumni and friends. Among those
pulling for our opponents, St.
Augustine’s Falcons, was Miss St.
Augustine’s College, Betty M. Jef
fries, senior from Burlington, N. C.
A Freshman’s Thoughts
The college is located in a com
munity and region in which note
worthy efforts are evolving to uti
lize all available resources toward
creating better environments for
human development. The college
seeks to assist students to under
stand situations so that as future
community leaders they may par
ticipate in guiding the dynamics of
American society toward desirable
Attractively landscaped lawns
and geometrically arranged walks
and roadways blend with the na
tural scenery of the foliage and
trees to provide the kind of beauty
that the college traditionally has re
garded as one of the essentials of
The buildings are all functional
as well as beautiful and they have
been designed especially to meet
the needs of the students and teach
ers who use them. They are also
designed with the fact in mind that
in a state-supported institution the
people of the State are ever-wel-
come visitors and resource persons
who can make significant contribu
tions to the overall development of
These are the ideas that I have
found concerning the beauty of
Fayetteville State Teachers Col
lege. I am convinced that I have
chosen the best school in North
