Tuesday, April 26, I960 THE CHARLOTTE COLLEGIAN Page 3 Candidates’ Qualifications Announced EDITORIAL Tlie student body has nominated candidates for the Student Council and has, we think, chosen wisely We congratulate each nominee. The process of nomination, how ever, is only a preliminary. Re sponsibility for electing members to fill the offices on the Student Council still rests upon each stu dent at Charlotte College. Having given careful consider’ ation to each of those nominated, we now wish to point out the qualifications of those we believe will best serve as members of our Student Government Association. For PRESIDENT we endorse HOWARD PAYNE. Currently serving as President of the Fresh man Class, Howard has shown an intense interest in the betterment of the College and a desire to carry out the wishes of the students he represents. In regiular attendance as a voting member of the Student Council, he has consistently voted for the expressed desires of the student body. Presently a day-student, Howard will become an evening student during his proposed tenure as Presiden, while pursuing his stu dies in engineering. This, we think, will give him a balanced cross- section of student opinion. A member of various com mittees, Howard has been named to the dean’s list consistently since enrolling at CC. He is a member of Iota Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and the college, chorus. For these reasons, we believe that Howard is the besti man for the job of President. For VICE-PRESIDENT w o solicit your consideration of BOB SADLER. Bob is at present a re presentative of the Freshman Class to the Student Council. He held the offices of President and Vice- president of his high school home rooms. Conscientious and alert to the desires of the student body, Bob, we think, will bring to the office of Vice-President those qualities necessary for this office. Bob attends the day school. ANN SETTLEMYRE is our choice for SECRETARY. She is a representative to the Student Council, appears on the dean’s list, is a member of Iota Lambda Chapter of - Phi Theta Kappa and sings with the college chorus. We feel that Ann will serve con scientiously as Secretary. A part- time assistant to the librarian, Ann has classes in both the day and evening schools. BILL HICKS, we believe, will serve honorably as TREASURER, .''i member of the social committee and the college chorus. Bill is well- known as a dili|g«nt and honest student. A new aspirant to college student government. Bill served on various committees and held sev eral student government positions while in high school. He attends classes in both the day and even ing schools. All other nominees were asked by the Collegian to make any statements they wished to hare published. No statements other than these had been received at press time. Crossword Puzzle Alumni Review Past Officers Of Student Council Hold Responsible Positions BIG MEN ON CAMPUS /O /2 /4 IS /6 /7 2!

Count Basie (init) By DICK BUCKEY Among the many calendared events that accompany the advent of spring is the election of the students body’s Executive Council for the comingi year. The “Alumni Review” takes pleasure in re introducing several of this council’s past members. Bill Reid, past president of the Council in 1956, attended Charlotte College as a Business Administra tion major, receiving his A. A. degree in 1957. An outstanding contributor to our school’s heritage, Mr. Reid also served as chairman of the as sembly committee, secretary- treasurer of Sigma Lambda Chi, as a member of the Spanish Club, and as a member of Sigma Tau Sigma. Mr. Reid also received the Bili Mitchell Award and J. W.Wool- folk Scholarship. Expressing his musical talent, Mr. Reid is probably best remem bered as the author and composer of the Charlotte College Alma Mater. Mr. Reid received his B. A. de gree from Davidson College in 1959, and is now an assistant to the president of the Cole Manufactur ing Company. Robert Jerry Martin, past presi dent of the council in 1954, received his A. A. degree from Charlotte College in the same year. Also a receiver of the Bill Mitchell Award, a member of Sigma Lambda Chi, and a member of the basketball team, Mr. Martin was quite active in Charlotte College affairs. Mr. Martin received his B. S. degree in Marketing from the University of North Carolina in 1956. He is presently employed in the sales division of E. I. DuPont de Nemours and Company. Mrs. Louella Robinson Foust, past secretary of the council in 1955, received her A. A. degree from Charlotte College in the same year. A holder of a Delta Kappa Gamma Scholarship, Mrs. Foust received her A. B. degree in Education from the University of North Carolina in 1957. While at the university, she was a member of Phi Beta Kappa scholarship Fraternity. Since her graduation in 1957, Mrs. Foust has served as assistant secretary in the History Depart ment at Chapel Hill, secretary in the Supervisor’s office of the Char lotte City School System, Bible teacher at West High in Charlotte, and part time secretary for Char lotte College. The “Alumni Review” is interest ed in all that our friends of yester-i day are doing. We will welcome) any bit of news you might have about our past Charlotte College men and women. The Editor’s Desk I wish to express my appreciation to the Collegian staff, the Collegian faculty advisors, and to all who are cooperating so willingly to make the Collegian a -success. Comments received about the. April issue have been very favor-> able, and I wish to pass on to the Collegian reporters and to the members of the journalism class the credit for a job well done. One evening last week I talked to a Charlotte College alumnus who was at home for Easter vacation from a university. When asked to comment upon CC and his present Alma Mater, he said that, as a red- blooded American boy, he would reserve the right to offer con structive criticism on either, but that a proper appreciation of Char lotte College can come only after one has transferred to another seat of learning. He called Charlotte College a “student's college” where one is helped by the faculty to attain the( level of learning he desires. His matter of fact statement of the detached attitude and seeming elimination procedures in freshman and sophomore classes at the uni versity indicated that he misses the close associations he enjoyed at Charlotte College. Have you worked Jere Thomas’ crossword puzzles in this and the last issue of the Collegian? He made them especially tough to fit the exacting demands of Charlotte College students. A Harvard man wouldi find them impossible. New Courses Added By GWENDOLYN EASTRIDGE Some 555 students enrolled in Charlotte College for the winter term. College records show en rollment has- nearly doubled sincei 1956. To meet the needs and interests of the student body and the com munity, new courses have been added to the curriculum. Students, recognizing the import ance of reading with speed, com prehension, and accuracy, met with Dr. David Shepherd of the Read ing Center each Monday night during the winter term. Special equipment, college owned, was used to aid in increasing reading speed. Eleven students interested in newspaper writing, began a course in journalism during the winter quarter and will continue their study through the spring quarter. Each Thursday night the instructor, DeWitt H. Scott, city editor of The Charlotte News, discusses the techniques of newspaper writing and editing. There are ten new typewriters in room 200. Typing tables were loaned to the college by the high school. A course in typing was added to the curriculum with the beginning of the spring term. In cooperation with North Caro lina State College, the University of North Carolina, and civic groups, special classes for Char- lotteans are conducted. On Feb. 8, the School of En gineering of North Carolina State College entered the second year of its enlarged program of advanced engineering in this area. A class designed for graduate engineers of the area is the review class for the state engineering examination. Charlotte College was the first center of engineering review to be opened in North Carolina. A non-credit course is offered in management problems. En rollment in this class, held each Tuesday night in the Mayo Room of the Charlotte Public Library, had to be limited because of seat ing capacity. Twenty-five of the 70 desiring to take the course could not be enrolled. Graduate course s offered through the University of North Carolina, primarily for public school teachers of Charlotte, meet each Tuesday evening from 5 to 7. New Lounge Is Planned The Student National Education Association of Charlotte College will furnish a lounge on the second floor of the old Central building. The NEA already has acquired two chairs and one couch from the old Central teacher’s lounge. The association is relying chiefly on money from the student council to complete the project. The new lounge will provide a place where students in the old building may relax and study. Students in the old building now must commute to the new wing to find a lounge and, upon arrival there, often find the lounge facilities inadequate.

While many students prefer literature of a serious nature, many others show little interest along these lines. And some students, presumably, appreci ate both. The light-hearted, and sometimes ridiculous, tales in college humor magazines should be welcome here. A humor magazine at Charlotte College should be able to coexist peaceably with the Writer’s Club. The Parnassian is a necessary out let for Charlotte College’s better writers. If need be, a humor magazine could originate in mimeographed form. This later could give way to a printed edition when funds be come available.
