They also are typical of reas
ons which caused the chairman
o' the board, J. Murray Atkins,
to say on the day of the big
event that the board is looking
for someone to be a business
executive for the community
Mr. Atkins said of our Presi-
uent, “We feel and have long
long felt that Miss Cone’s great
talent for inspiring her faculty
and her students is too great
to be wasted on legislators, pur
chasing agents, and brick layers.
She has this great devotion to her
students and her teachers, and
we think we would be taking
advantage of her if we didn’t get
someone to help her with theie
other jobs — jobs which she also
has done very well.”
And how does President Cone
feel about all this? The last time
she was seen by this reporter she
was leaving her office too late
at night, walking down the hall
of old Charlotte College, beaming
pleasantly, and stopping long
enough to unlock the door for
someone who wanted to get into
a supply room.

available tn CC studerts yet, the
State Utilities Commission has
approved bus service to the new
campus, and buses will be in

To Be Available
A Mutual of Omaha student in

dents were offered last year.
If a considerable number of
students take the policy, CC’s
basketball team will be covered.
