Date Of Delivery
For Annuol Set
In a statement to the JOURNAL,
Sandra Brantley, editor of the
1967 yearbook, revealed that the
1966 edition will be distributed to
students early in the month of
October this year.
Miss Brantley, speaking for the
1967 annual staff, e}q)ressed ap-
jiologies to the student body for the
late delivery date. The 1966 year
book was scheduled to appear
sometime during AugusL
Miss Brantley said reasons for
the delay grow out of the fact that
the 1966 editor, the former Miss
Judy Hardison, turned annual copy
in to the publisher late. Because
of this, the publisher missed 180
The deadline for copy to be
turned in to the publisher was
June 21 but the publisher did not
receive all the copy for the year
book until August 1.
Miss Hardison was married cm

Frat & Frug
By Bobbe Berry
Just one glance into the ball
room and lounge area of the Union
building Tuesday night, September
6 between 8:30 and 11; 30 would have
proved that “FratemizingFrug’’
had been an appropriate choice for
the theme of the FaU Semester
Orientation dance for freshman
and transfer students sponsored by
the Freshman Advisory Council.
Dave Freeman and the Tassels
played for this first dance of the
year in the ballroom which was
decorated with cartoon characters
in settings which represented var
ious phases of the life ontheUNC—
C campus and also served as an
early advertisement for many of
the social and athletic activities
which will take place throughout
the coming year. These colorful
decorations were made by Libby
Holshouser, Jane Walker, Sally
Hagood, Kay Wasson, and Bobby
Berry, chairman ofthe dance com
She said that the name of the
annual would probably be changed
again. The 1967 staff has already
voted to make the change, accord
ing to her.
“The Nugget” is the tagthel966
edition will bear when it is de
livered. This, too, is a new name.
All previous volumes had been cal
led “Si Si”, pronounced “see
All “Si Si’s” were delivered
to the students before summer
vacation until 1965. That year’s
editor, the former Miss Sharon
Hacker, set the precedent of late
summer delivery in order to in
clude in the volume spring sports
and activities and graduation cov
This precedent has been followed
since that time.

Additions to the game room have
made play there one of the most
creative activities the campus pro
vides. Before given an authorit
ative demonstration as to how the
new games were played, this re
porter wondered if the Three Di
mensional Tick Tack Toe game
was an I. Q. Test.
It wasn’t. The game is, however,
quite a brain teaser and requires
skill. The rules are easily learned
and there are 49 possible ways to
get three inarow-thatis, marbles.
Another game to test skill and
power of concentration is the Laby
rinth Game. As few as two people
or as many as two teams can
tests their skUls against one an
other in playing it.
A game of Table Cricket has
also been added to the game room.
Two, four, or eight persons can
participate in this game. The per
son or team must defend a goal
as weU as try to make points by
hitting the ball into the goal the
opponent is defending. It is a fast
moving game and promises to
draw even a cheering section.
Dutch Shuffle-Board, another
addition, is a versitle game which
may be played in one of three
different ways. Skittles, which ori
ginated in China, is an exciting
game of chance. Six or eight per
sons may play or one may play
Two other games have been
added which challenge the skiU

The Fabulous Tams will head
line the first dance of the fall
here in the Union ballroom, Sat
urday night, September 17, from
8 until 12 p.m. The Cavaliers
will appear on the same card.
The ABC-Paramount record
ing artists, the Tams, have pro
duced an impressive number of
hits during the four years they
have been together.
“Untie Me” was the first hit
for the group which had been per
forming in night clubs and at fra
ternity parties. They quickly fol
lowed up with their nation-wide
smash hit, “What Kind Of Fool Do
You Think I Am.”
Since that time. The Tams have
recorded such favorites as “You
Lied to Your Daddy, “ “Laugh It
Off”, “How Can I Un-Love You”,
“Better To Have Loved A Little,”
“Hey Girl, Don’t Bother Me”, and
“I’ve Been Hurt”.
The Tams made numerous ap
pearances in Charlotte, Myrtle
Beach, and the surrounding area
this summer. They always at
tracted a full house audience.
The Tams have made singing
somewhat of a family affair with
Charles and Joseph Pope making

Their brother, Otis Pope, acts as
Robert Smith, who sings bass,
Horace Key and Floyd Ashton, who
add background harmony, round out
During the course of a personal
appearance, every member of the
Tams sings the lead at least once.

The group is in great demand
for public appearance tours and its
members wouldn’t have it any other
way. They say they are most happy
when in front of a live audience.
The Cavaliers, who will also be
here Saturday night, is a six-
member rock and roll combo which
has gained much publicity by back
ing up the Tams on numerous
occasions this summer.
The group features two guitars,
a trumpet, a saxophone, an elect
ric organ, and drums.
Frank Jones, Chairman of the
Union, expressed hopes that this
dance would attract a large port
ion of the student body. He in
dicated that the number of other
dances of this nature to be held
would be partially determined by
the turnout Saturday.
Admission for UNC-C students
and their dates is free.
