Second Semester Classes Begin January 30, 1962 The Voice National Teacher Exams February 20, 1962 VOLUME 15, No. 2 FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, FAYETTEVILLE, N. C. DECEMBER, 1961 From The President’s Desk After a recent trip by the Bron cos to play a football game at an other institution, two members of the squad expressed to me their surprise at the utterly poor facili ties at the college they had just visited. They related also that facilities here are much better ■ than those observed in most of the colleges where they have played. As we approach the Holiday Season and the beginning pf a new year, it occurs to me that this is a good time for us to give thanks to God and to count our blessings. While many students are prone to gripe and find fault with certain services, conditions, requirements and regulations here, they will find if they seek the truth that Fay etteville is much better on the whole than many other places. Our food and health services are much better. Our buildings and other equipment are better. We do not have as many required as sembly and vesper programs. Our regulations governing social privil eges are more liberal. As strange as it may seem some students who have transferred here from other colleges and who realize they are in a much better environment, have the nerve to gripe. Seriously, students, as we ap proach the new year let us count our blessings. Let us also take a personal inventory and analyze ourselves. Let us make an attempt to change those attitudes and hab its that are liabilities rather than assets. In this way we can improve the quality of work we are doing k.i cldases. Ill this way we can im prove our whole outlook on life. All members of the college fami ly have my best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year.
