DR. MILNER, LEADER OF AMERICAN EDUCATION PAGE 2 VOLUME XLIX Broad Development Planned by Trustees Rules Updated By Legislature The Student Legislature this year has been very active in its func tions of coordinating campus or ganizations, creating new legisla tion to keep up with the times, and representing the views and ideas of the student liody to faculty and ad ministration. The Constitution Committee of the Legislature is in the process of revising the Student Government Constitution to include the Social Committee as a subsidiary organi zation of the Student Legislature. This act will provide for closer co ordination between the two bodies and will bring the Social Commit tee into the actual Government or ganization. The Committee is also seeking to have on record the con stitutions of all student organiza tions on campus. The Legislature's Traffic Com mittee has been extremely effective this year. Early in the year it was armed with new up-to-date legisla tion which provided for a stricter enforcement of campus regulations. The Legislature has also recently completed a new set of regulations concerning motorcycles, which will be under the authority of the Traf fic Committee. Earlier in the year a joint meet ing of the Legislature, the Men s Student Council and the Women's Student Council resolved numerous proposals which were brought be fore the Committee on Counseling. As a result of this meeting a few changes have been or will be put into effect, such as: a new and more convenient method of family-style serving to go into effect next se mester; more lighting installed along the walks; and a drive to at tempt to remedy the sloppy condi tion of the Soda Shop. (Continued on page 4, column 1) WSC Rules Pending Lillian Davis, president of the Women's Student Legislature, has anonunced that the proposed rules changes discussed and voted upon by the women students, are pres ently in the hands of the Commit tee on Counseling. These changes involve liberaliza tion of campus regulations which will remove what has been said to be unnecessary restrictions now in effect against the women students. These changes involve ten of the fourteen articles now in the present constitution. Included in the pro posals are the following: Removal of the section of Article 1 which states that special permis sion must be granted from home for each instance in which a woman student will return from a ball game at an hour after 12 midnight. Removal of the portion of Article 111 which states that "Freshmen do not leave campus alone or with a date. They must be accompanied by another freshman or upperelass man throughout the first semester." Removal of a portion of section 2, Article V. This states that ber mudas and slacks can be worn on hikes and picnics, only with the permission of the House President. Removal of the permission clause is suggested. Removal of Article VI, section D. This states that "women should not Tf)e CjuiffonSon Published by the Students of the South's Only Quaker College Dana Scholars Do Research by ANDY HINES For the past several years the Dana scholars have undertaken va rious study projects, and this year the scholars are concerned with procuring supplementary materials which will be used as teaching aids in connection with the World Cul ture Center. Under the direction of Dean At well and Dean Mellaney, each •scholar shall determine what he feels to be a major aspect or contri bution in his chosen field of study, and then shall suggest major as pects or contributions. Supplement ary materials include such things as motion picture films which could bo scenic, dramatic, scientific, or interpretative. Also included would be filmstrips, slides, recordings and works of art. The idea is to locate and procure those materials which will best portray, characterize, or facilitate the understanding of a particular individual, idea or concept, and use these supplementary materials as teaching aids. But this is not restricted to the World Culture Center To Be Bub Of Learning C. Elmer Leak, distinguished citizen of Greensboro and alumnus of Guilford College, has given funds for construction of the World Culture Center in the proposed new classroom building at Guilford College. The World Culture Center will occupy the entire first floor of one wing of the building. Cost is estimated at $100,000.00. The pur pose of the World Culture Center will be to interpret the cultural re source program at Guilford College as outlined in the publication, "An Introduction To The Cultural Re source Program At Guilford Col lege." Of almost equal importance the World Culture Center will be used extensively in a program of continuing adult education de signed to meet the needs of the Greensboro community. The Guilford College core curric ulum, consisting of sixty hours of tool and cultural resource courses and required of all students regard less of major, is designed to make the liberal arts graduate intelli gently conversant with the culture of his civilization so that he can enter more fully into, and contrib ute more significantly to, his social responsibilities. Despite the fact that teachers are continually en couraged to emphasize the threads that have been woven together over the centuries to form our pres ent civilization, there is a tendency to treat the various fields as iso lated entities or separate compart ments. It is believed that the body of knowledge contained in the core linger in cars with men when they return from riding together."

Students are expected to arrange transportation in order to be in the dormitory by closing time.

DANA Dana scholars alone. Each scholar, I am sure, would welcome criticism and suggestions from faculty and students alike on any phase of this study. The World Culture Center is going to be a significant addition to the Guilford College scene and you will feel that you are more a part of it if you have, in some way, contributed to it. curriculum can be taught more ef fectively with the facilities in the World Culture Center. Particularly it is believed that this facility will enable teachers to show more clear ly how cultural development in the various categories, such as philos ophy, religion, science, and the cre ative arts, are inter-related. When this is done, the interest and sense of purpose of all students will be greatly increased as they are shown graphically that developments in each category and in each succeed ing chronological period in history were based in a marked degree on what had been done before, that the cultural heritage we know to day is the product of creative think ing over several thousand years, and that the present will have an equally strong effect on the future. For example, an instructor in as tronomy will not only be able to show how his science developed from Ptolemy to Copernicus to Galileo to Herschel to Shapley, but will also be able to point out how the social, philosophical, religious and scientific influences of his pe riod affected the thinking of each of these great figures in astronomy. Thus the student will be made more aware of the true purpose of a liberal arts education, and his I _ HH^I fEndowment To Be Raised To $7,000,000 By 1972; Enrollment To Remain Same Upon completion of the five con struction projects involved in the Charles A. Dana Challenge Pro gram—the new men's dormitory, the new women's dormitory, the new power plant, the addition to the dining hall and the addition to the library—the Guilford College Board of Trustees has adopted a broad development program look ing toward its completion in 1972. This program will include develop ment in the areas of endowment and enrollment. It is desired to increase the per manent endowment of the college from $2,610,710 to a minimum of $7,000,000. This increase will make possible much of the proposed in crease in strength of faculty and number of volumes in the library. It will also enable the college to continue and improve its establish ed policy of assisting faculty mem bers in the pursuit of advanced degrees. Enrollment on the Guilford Col lege campus will remain at the present level of 850 students so that the college policy of providing individual attention for each stu college experience will be more meaningful. The World Culture Center will contain electrically-operated audio visual aids designed especially for interpretation of the cultural re source program at Guilford. With these specially designed aids it will be possible to show: a. Chronologically and by cat egory the individuals who have made major contributions to the development of civilization. b. The ebb and flow of cultural emphasis throughout the various historical periods since 3,000 B.C. and the reasons for ebb and flow. c. Examples of creative and ar tistic efforts—painting, sculpture, architecture, music, drama and lit erature. d. Examples of major scientific developments. e. Historical, biographical and scientific films. f. The ideas and movements which have influenced the course of cultural developments. Seating in the Center will be on a circular platform which can be rotated 360 degrees so that stu dents can face directly any of the permanent electronic exhibits or either of two exhibit-control lec terns.

It is in tended that present dormitory ac commodations will be fully used and that the resident student body will be maintained at 750 students; 100 day students will be accepted each year. Enrollment in the Greensboro Division will be allow ed to increase as the demand in creases to a maximum of 2,000, a number which can be accommo dated adequately with present fa cilities. The full-time teaching faculty at the college campus will be in creased to 60, with an additional 12 faculty members who will divide their teaching responsibility with the Greensboro Division. The fac ulty salary range will be doubled during this decade of development. Present space in the college li brary will make it possible to in crease the number of books to 80,000 by the addition of 2,500 carefully selected volumes each year. Reading rooms and other li brary facilities are considered ade quate for a student body of 850. ' Present plans call for renovation of Memorial Hall so that offices for members of the college faculty will be available. The renovation will include remodeling of the entrance to the building and remodeling of the second floor. Within the next several years the Administration-C lass r o o m Building will be erected. This pro posed structure will provide offices for the college administration and will include 10 general purpose classrooms. Also included will be such other teaching facilities as are (Continued on page 4, col. 5) Quakers Open CC Play With Victory Over Pfeiffer Scott Gets 22 in 55-51 Win by HANK SIEGEL MISENHEIMER, Dec. B —Guilford College opened Carolinas Confer ence play Tuesday night with a thrilling 55-51 victory over the Fal cons of Pfeiffer College. After four straight wins over Dix ie Conference teams Guilford passed what was regarded as its first major test of the season. In doing so the Quakers heat a team whose starting five featured four seniors and a junior. From the opening whistle to the closing buzzer both teams em ployed a tenacious pressing de fense. As a result there was never more than a five-point difference in the teams' scores. The first half was a see-saw bat tle as the lead switched hands sev en times. With 3:35 left in the half and with Pfeiffer ahead 25-22, Guil ford made a bid to take the lead by halftime. John Brooks hit a shot from close range and Lloyd Turlington fol lowed with a jump-shot. The Quak ers now led 26-25 with 1:41 remain ing. But it was all in vain as Pfeif fer's Danny Carver layed in John Miller's pass to give the Falcons a 27-26 halftime lead. Guilford came out of the locker room and reclaimed the lead as Lloyd Turlington, followed by Chuck Scott, put in lay-ups, mak ing the score 30-27. Guilford kept the lead until 14:41 to go. At that point big Bob Kauffman committed his fourth personal foul, and left the game. It seemed to take some- (Continued on page 3, col. 5)
