N. C. COLLEGIATE PRESS ASSOCIATION PLANS
State College was host to the fall session of the North
Carolina Collegiate Press Association at the Sir Walter
Hotel, November 4-7. Over 70 delegates from twenty
North Carolina colleges attended. Representatives from
Saint Mary’s were: Mary Jane Yeatman, editor of the
Siage Coach; Rebecca Norman, business manager of
the Stage Coach; Alexa McColl, editor of the Bulletin;
and Louise Jordan, editor of the Belles.
At the Friday morning session. President Charles
Dunnagan (N. C. State) announced that Saint Mary’s
School and Lenoir-Rliyne had been accepted as members
of the association. Wesley Wallace, of WPTF, an
nounced a proposed plan for a weekly broadcast of
news of North Carolina colleges.
_ The Friday afternoon session was given over to group
discussions. Herbert S. Hitch led the discussion of the
annual editors; in Carl Goerch’s place, Roy Park, of
the Carolina Co-operator, spoke to the magazine editors;
Louis Wilson addressed the newspaper editors; and
A. M. Beck, the business managers.
In an address at the convention banquet Friday night,
Carl Goerch, editor of The State, emphasized the re
wards of a journalist through an increased joy in life
^nd power of observation, if not from the standpoint
of pecuniary returns.
At 10:30 Saturday morning. Governor Hoey ad
dressed the convention. He invited all members, par
ticularly those going into journalism, into a world of
activity and service to the common good. He said that
in no vocation was there opportunity for a finer exhibi
tion of talent than in journalism.
Saturday afternoon the convention members were
guests of the State College Athletic Association at the
State-Citadel football game.
The most important outcome of the convention was
the resolution to accept the plan suggested by WPTF
for a collegiate broadcast. The time set is from 7 :00 to
il5 p.m. on Mondays. Colleges aro to send news items
that will make good broadcasting material. Five min
utes of the program will be allotted to sports news, five
minutes to oddities or features worthy of attention, and
file last five minutes to the editorial policy. The broad
cast will represent a centralized news agency, a new
method of keeping colleges in touch with each other
und parents in touch with students. It will also he a
medium of expression for college students.
Saint Mary’s publications are beginning their first
year as members of the North Carolina Collegiate Press
Association. Representatives of the various staffs have
already received helpful suggestions and an incentive
from this first convention to the development of good
publications; and they will receive further benefit from
membership in the Association, and particularly the
development of the collegiate broadcast. This project
is a valuable new idea with unlimited possibilities.

DR. BELL SPEAKS IN ASSEMBLY
Dr. Bernard Iddings Bell, former dean of Stephens
College and lecturer at Columbia University, spoke in
assembly October 27.
His subject was “Philosophy and Religion,” and he
immediately commanded the attention of the group of
supposedly religious students by his thought-provoking
remark that the trouble with a college student’s religion
is that she has none. “Every student,” he said, “has
some vague emotion about religion carried over from
childhood, but upon entering college, she usually loses
what remembrance of it she had.” “Religion is not,”
he stated, “as most students think, something that hap

Dr. Bell’s talk was entertaining, concise, and stimu
