October THE VOICE Page Three By Lines on the Summer Sequence REIVES WINS SCHOLARSHIP By LAURA GILMORE Last Spring at Fayetteville State College a new scholarship award was added to the many awards given each year to deserving stu dents. The scholarship is known as the Janies J. Corbett Scholar ship which is being donated by Dr. Joan Corbett of our English Department. In order to qualify for this scholarship one must be a deserving male member of the Sophomore, junior or Senior Class, who has been selected by a com mittee appointed by President Ru dolph Jones. The scholarship cov ers tuition and is renewable an nually. If other tuition awards have been granted the recipient, this scholarship will pay the dif ference owed to the college. The 1966-67 scholarship included $200.00 cash in addition to the tui tion fee. The firts recipient of the James J. Corbett Scholarship Award is Justis Reives, a 20 year old junior from Carthage, North Carolina. Justis is an English major. He has merited the Dean’s list on 3 occa sions. He is also President of Al pha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Justis has done exceedingly well even though he did not have the guidance of his parents. Both are deceased. If you know anything at all about Justis, you will agree that he is an energetic young man who is always “Putting his best foot forward.” His hobbies are music and bowl ing. During his freshman year he appeared in the Fayetteville Little Theater’s Production of “Guys and Dolls. He is a member of the West minister Fellowship and the Stu dent National Educational Associa tion. Never tiring, Justis worked all summer as a key-sort card opera tor here at Fayetteville State Col lege. Immediately after graduation from Fayetteville State College, Justis would like to do graduate work. MATH LAB By CORNEL DAVIS Mr. Eldridge now has a new mathematics laboratory provided with TEMAC materials. It will be in use from 9;00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, to stimulate the interest of students taking mathematics. The lab’s chief aim is to help students who made less than 8.5 on the Standard Math Tests, al though it will be available for gen eral use of the student body. Stu dents will be permitted to work in dividually at their own pace. There will be selections of many sets of materials so as to allow all students of a section to pre pare, simultaneously, lessons based on the materials. Two staff persons will be assign ed to operate the laboratory in 4-8 multiple sections, consisting of ten to twenty students. Student evalua tions will be based on detail rec ords of item by item responses on math tests, to feedback for con stant improvement of the labora tory program. Subjects will be based in vol umes as follows, thus making it possible for extensive study in var- iors aspects of mathematics. BASIC MATHEMATICS Vol. I through Vol. V TRIGONOMETRY Vol. Ill CALCULUS I AND II Vol. I ANALYTICAL TRIGONOMETRY Vol. Ill DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS Vol. I SETS, INEQUALITIES AND FUNCTIONS Vol. I VERBAL PROBLEMS, ALGEBRA I AND II Vol. I SOLID GEOMETRY Vol. II MODERN ALGEBRA Vol. V LIVELY LYCEUM FEATURES By SHIRLEY STURDIFEN Three different attractions pro vided the summer school students with spritely moments among the lively arts. Unforgettable was Miss Hildreth Roach’s swallow concert for Fay etteville State College. The charm ing and skillfully deft music teach er and virtuoso afforded a special treat for lovers of the classics, dis playing an amazing proficiency on some of the most difficult works of the masters. John Bassett, most certain to be accorded a place among the elite of folk singers, struck many moods as he aired realms of tale and romance. With surprising vocal range and dramatic flair, Mr. Bas sett, his voice and his guitar, made music literally bounce off the walls of Seabrook Auditorium. The Newton Thomas Trio and Don Perry seemed to have had all heads swaying as they nestled to concentrated smoothness in mod ern sounds. Though Thomas on piono, his bassist and his drummer fere more than apt soloists, his group was especially artistically poignant when all three were blended. Their total effect seemed a well thought out criss-cross of Dave Brubeck, Hampton Hawes, and Bud Powell all rolled into one. Thomas’ group has played all the famed bistros, including “Bird- land.” Perry, the brilliant violinist ac companying the trio, was truly su perb. Obviously of classical fibre with his freshly clear and controll ed tones, he was “finished” in every sense of the word. Though presenting only standard ballads and known jazz vehicles, the tenor fo Perry’s broad range and caress ing tenderness would stay him in as equally good stead with the New York Philharmonic String Section. Music, Voices, Please! . . . By LAURA GILMORE The Fayetteville State College Choir under the direction of Mrs. Mary T. Eldridge i sgoing to sing the time away this year. What beautiful music they will make, too, if you know anything about the choir. Obviously some people have heard some of the beautiful notes that have been sung by the choir during the years because of the many students who auditioned for the choir this year. Mrs. Eld ridge was very pleased with the auditioners and many of them the grade and are now new members of the choir. Mrs. Eldridge pointed out, however, that she needs more men in the choir to give it more vitality. MEN come to the rescue. A person can gain so much from his affiliation with an extra-curri cula activity. Singing in the choir gives you an outlet from the rig orous routine of classes and study. It also makes you alert and gives a certain amount of displine. Be ing a member of the campus choir will be interesting and enjoyable. The choir takes many trips throughout the state each year. Last year the choir went to Phila delphia to perform and Mrs. Eld ridge says that because of the choir’s fine performance, they have been invited to return again this year. The choir has moved into new quarters this year in the Fine Arts Building. When you see the new choir room, the new pianos and all of the other new equipment, it makes you want to sing even though you can not hold a tune. Mrs. Eldridge comments that, “We had a fine group of people last year when we didn’t have a new Arts Building, but now that we have one, the choir should be per- perfect.” Let’s admit it. We have a good choir! Why not support it by at tending some of their concerts. GRADUATE STUDY SETS PRECEDENCE By CORNEL DAVIS Two graduate courses were taught at Fayetteville State Col lege this past summer. They mark ed the first time in the School’s history that such courses were of fered. Education 422, History and Philosophy of Education and Edu cation 360G, Principles of Guid ance, were taught by Dr. Malvin E. Moore Jr., Dean of the College, and Dr. Grady Davis of the FSC Education Department. Both courses were offered in conjunc tion with East Carolina College. Education 360G was a three quarter hour senior-graduate course. A student must have earn ed a minimum of 144 quarter hours (90 semester hours) of un dergraduate credit or hold a B. A., B. S., or M. A. degree to have been eligible for credit. Education 422 was a three quarter hour grad uate course. A student must have held a Baccalaureate degree to have been eligible for credit in it. Both of the courses may be used for renewal of “A” and “G” teach ing certificates, if they do not duplicate previous credit and if the course is pertinent to the teaching field. They may also ap ply toward the Master of Arts de gree upon official admission to the East Carolina College Graduate School if the course fits into the student’s degree program. A total of ten class sessions were held for each course and students could enroll for one or both courses. Tuition for each course was $27.00 per person plus the cost of the textbooks. Instruc tors of both courses expressed sat isfaction in having the course and look forward to having them again next summer. FSC PROFESSOR JOINS NCSU STAFF By LEONZA LOFTIN Mr. Richard Robinson, Professor of Physics, has joined the staff of the North Carolina University at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Mr, Robinson began this assignment on September 6, 1966. He is teaching a course in General Physics 211. This is a four credit hours course which meets two evenings per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There are eighteen students in this class. The North Carolina State Uni versity at Fort Bragg is a division of the main campus which is locat ed in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Fort Bragg division is accorded the same status and privileges as the parent school in Raleigh. The purpose of the school at Fort Bragg is to enable military personnel and their dependents stationed there, to further their education while fulfilling their military obligations. It also serves civilians on a space available basis. It is believed that this is the first time a member of the Fay etteville State College staff has served on the faculty of the Uni versity of North Carolina at Fort Bragg.' ON DINING IN LILLIPUT By CHARLES COOPER Yes, dinner, lunch and break fast were served as usual this sum mer but not in the usual place. The summer school students used Newbold Training School’s Cafe teria. To give you some idea of what it was like, well, it has been said that experience is the best teacher and that one never ap preciates a valuable thing until he is no longer in possession of it. In reference to the experience, the contrast between the dining room that was used during the summer session and our own L. C. Cook Dinig Hall proved to be an unforgettable experience. This was especially so for those individuals six feet tall who had to sit down to a table four feet from the floor. I think you will agree that this could present a slight problem. Not only were the tables inap propriate, but we were also in as set of a one corner air conditioner. Picture this; it is a scortching day, you’re seated at a table designed for six years olds, you’re perspir ing from head to foot, and there in a corner stands a ten foot elec tric fan operating smoothly, but not to your convenience, mind you. Rather heart breaking isn’t it. If you’ve attended church at any time during your lifetime you probably remember hearing a ser mon about the bones, the dry bones for some peculiar reason the thought of those bones never fail ed t ooccur upon eating our care fully prepared breakfast toast. This statement signifies the dif ference in hard working student? having a good hearty breakfast to start the day off with a bang. The aftermath lies in the joy of being back to our recently re modeled L. C. Cook hall of de licious food, with accommodations suitable for all. N.D.E.A. INSTITUTE By ROWENA PETERSON Fayetteville State College suc cessfully completed its first N. D, E. A, Institute this past summer. It was for advance study in Eng lish for Elementary Teachers of the Language Arts. The Institute consisted of three courses of two sections each. The courses were Grammer and Composition, Chil dren’s Literature and The Teach ing of Reading: There were six weeks of classes, one in each course each day, fol lowed by a one week workshop which synthesized classroom mat ter with methods. The institute was composed of sixty participants, teachers from all over the United States, one from Puerto Rico and one from Hawaii. All had been in the teaching field for at least five years. Dr. Joan Corbett was its direc tor. Dr. Marquerite Frierson was the assistant director. There were visiting professors o nthe staff, but it consisted mainly of F. S. C. fac ulty members. Mr. Edward Clark, Mrs. Minnetta Scott, Mrs. Lula Williams, Miss Lois Turner and Mr. Ollie Cox were the F. S. C. members of the staff. Two obser vation classes, composed of local little tots were a part of the pro gram. Many guess speakers came to F S. C.’s National Defense Edu cation Act English Institute. Mrs, Helen Chick spoke on the crea tion of stimulation in children by art. Mr. Leslie Guster of the Com mission on English talked about the Challenge to English teachers in elementary schools. Dr. Eugene Slaughter, Director of English In stitutes spent a day conferring with the staff. Mrs. Roger Evans lectured on the Initial Teaching Alphabet, Dr, Mabel F. Rudiskill of Duke Uni versity, Dr. Grady Davis, F. S. C. and Dr. Darwin Turner, A & T College were featured guests of the Institute. Dr. Corbett hopes that F. S. C. can have the insti tute again next summer. Promising Year for Drama By SHIRLEY STURDIFEN The Fayetteville State Drama Guild will launch a new and a very exciting season for 1966-67.
