THE CHARLOTTE COLLEGIAN
Tuesday, April 26, 1960

By PAUL A. SHINN
As April rolls around and the
major league teams begin to move
North, baseball prognosticators
take out their pencils and decide
who will be the pennant winners
for the coming season.
This year the sports department
of the Collegian took a poll of 20
Charlotte College students to see
how they picked the 1960 races.
The students were asked to list
the teams of each League in the
order of final standings.
The choices were tabulated like
this: Eight points went to the
team picked to finish first, seven
points to the second-place team,
and so on down to one point for
the last-place team.
In the National League it was
a three-way race. The San Fran
cisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers,
and Milwaukee Braves dominated
the top spot voting.
The Giants wound up with 147
points out of a possible 160 to take
first place in the student poll.
The Milwaukee Braves, who lost
the pennant to the Dodgers in a
playoff last year, were picked to
finish second in the senior circuit.
The fact that the Dodgers won
the pennant and the World Series
in 1959 made little impression on
the majority of students polled.
Los Angeles was picked to finish
third behind San Francisco and
Milwaukee. The Dodgiers polled
eight fewer votes than the Braves
No other team came close to
catching the Giants in the voting.
In fact only one other team, the
Pittsburg Pirates, received a first-
Cincinnati’s Reds tied with the
Pirates for fourth spot in the
league standing. Each team got
The last three places in the
National league standings seemed
to be pretty stable.
The St. Louis Cardinals finish
ed 12 votes ahead of the Chicago
Cubs, and the Cubs wound up 25
votes ahead of the last place
Philadelphia Phillies, who could
manage only 25 points.
The American league also had a
three club race for the pennant.
Chicago’s other representative
to major league baseball, the
White Sox, received 151 points to
finish first in the American league
Charlotte College site will be location of Spring picnic.
The Sox picked up 13 first place
votes, more than any other team.
They were picked no lower than
third on any ballot.
The Yankees will rise a notch in
the standings this year, according
to the CC baseball men.
Casey Stengle’s pin-stripped
warriors edged out Cleveland by
seven points for second place.
The Indians were a solid choice
for third, finishing. 44 points ahead
of fourth place Detroit.
Baltimore and the Boston Red
Sox had a close fight for fifth spot
in the league. The Orioles eked
out a one point lead over the
Beantown boys and should wind
up leading the second division
Despite the power of Harmon
Killebrew and Bob Allison, and the!
pitching of Camilo Pascual, the
Senators could manage only 35
points in the voting.
It looks as though Washington
will again be first in war, first in
peace, and last in the American
league in 1960.
In individual hitting depart
ments in the National league,
Ernie Banks was picked over Hank
Aaron to repeat as the league’s
most valuable player.
Banks also took top spot in vot
ing for home runs and runs batted
in. Aaron should repeat as thft
league’s batting champion.
Cleveland’s powerful Rocky
Colavito was named to win the
American league’s home run and
runs batted in championships.
Nellie Fox, White Sox second
baseman, was picked to win the
MVP award, and Detroit’s Harvey
Kuenn was chosen to again take
the American league batting crown.

As there is still some uncertainty
about the future of the assembly
■programs at Charlotte College, the
Collegian would like to get the
opinions of the students concern
ing this matter First of all, we
would like to know if the students
really want the programs; and
secondly, if you do, what type you-
It is the practice to have one
assembly program, which is paid
for and backed by the Student
Council, each quarter. The cost is
taken from the student’s activity
fee. This year,, about $1,100.00 has
been spent on three assemblies.
This represents a cost of about
$2.00 per student.
One view of the programs is that
they are to bring culture to the
college. Another is that they arei
to entertain the students. Still
another interpretation is that cul
ture should be entertaining, and
that both views therefore coincide
when pianists and, singers are
brought to C. C.
You will help both yourself and
the Student Council if you voice
your opinion on this matter.
Mentioning yoiir views to a mem
ber of the Council, will, of course'
help. However, the Collegian
would like to know your feelings
too. Simply write your thoughts,
address them to “Letters to the
Editors,” and drop them in the
“Letters” slot next to the teachers’
Tourtellot: “What’s new in

The annual Selective Service
College Qualification Test will bei
offered to college students April 28
at about 500 colleges throughout
The score made on the test is a
help to local boards in considering
students for deferment from in
duction for study as undergraduate
or graduate students.
Col. Thomas H. Upton, state
director of Selective Service for
North Carolina, announced that the
test in North Carolina will be con
ducted at the following schools:
Chapel Hill, University of
Davidson, Davidson College
Durham, Duke University
Durham, North Carolina College
Greensboro, Agricultural and
Technical College of North
Hickory, Lenoir-Rhyne College
He urged students to take the
“The test is for the student’s
benefit as well as for the nation’s
good,” Col. Upton said. “A local
board, should have full information
about a student in order to classify
him, including his class standing
and a score on this test. A high
test score may compensate for low
class standing, and high class
standing may compensate for a low
“Some students do not take the
test because a student deferment
extends a registrant’s liability,”
Col. Upton said. “Other defer
ments also extend liability to age
35,” he added, “such as those for
members of the ROTC, for ex
ample. And no registrant can re
main out of service beyond about
age 23 unless an exemption, or
a deferment extends liability.
“The purpose of student defer
ments is to give promising stu
dents an opportunity to continue
to prepare themselves for careers
in support of the national interest.”
Scientific and professional en
gineering organizations are urging
students preparing for careers in
those fields to take the test, the
State -Director pointed ouL These
organizations recognize the need
for advanced study. They also re
cognize that the undergraduate
student who today does not plan
on graduate study frequently real
izes its importance as he nears
graduation. That is the time that
a deferment may be most import
ant. That is also the time when a
test score may be most important
in the local board’s decision con
Application materials for the test
are available at the nearest local
board office. Full instructional
materials are issued with the
