Work has begun on the new
E. W. Spangler Memorial Stad

100 yards southwest of the pre

The Executive Committee of
the Board of Trustees approved
acceptance of the low bid after
studying the nine bids submitted,
the highest of which was $40,-

have been set up by Geymont for
completion of all clearing,moving

ing for roads, parking lots and
access roads, piping, soiling the
playing field, and other jobs con

area for erection of the stadium.
The facility will seat 5,000
fans when completed but can be
easily expanded to accommodate
up to 30,000 persons as the col-
lege and its athletic program en-

minary to the Davidson-West Vir
ginia contest. Dennis Childress

large. Access to the stadium will
be from N. C. Highway 150.
This full equipped stadium
and track has been named by R.
Patrick Spangler and Earl Webb
(Bud) Spangler in memory of
their father, E. W. Spangler and
in honor of their mother, Mrs.
Verna Patrick Spangler.
Both Shelby men are active sup
porters of the college. R. Patrick
Spangler is the national general
chairman of the college’s highly
successful development campaign
which has netted over $1.5 mil
lion in less than one year. Adja
cent to the stadium will be a two
story V. F. Hamrick Field House
named in honor of V. F. Hamrick
of Shelby, former assistant ath
letic director at Wake Forest Col
lege. Work on both the stands,
fieldhouse, concession stands,
press box, and other facilities
will begin immediately after gra
ding is completed and college
officials are presently expecting
to use the stadium for the 1966

THE WAR ON POVERTY:
a message to the Nation’s college students.
Inspiring causes have always fired the
imagination of students.
Today the United States is committed
to the greatest humanitarian cause in its
history—a massive counterattack on the
causes of poverty, which are robbing
35,000,000 Americans of the opportuni
ties most of us are free to pursue be
cause we had the advantage of a decent
start in life. That start has been denied
to one-fifth of the nation’s people. Thir
teen million of them are children.
This Is a moment in history for the
fortunate to help the least privileged of
their fellow citizens. You can help this
summer, or for a full year if you choose,
as a volunteer In the War on Poverty.
In July and August, 30,000 volunteers
will be needed in their own communities
to assist four- and five-year-old children
of the poor through Project Head Start
Child Development Centers. Thousands
more are needed to live and work among
poor families by enlisting In VISTA, the
domestic Peace Corps.
In Head Start, volunteers work side-
by-side with teachers, social workers,
doctors, and other professionals to give
pre-school children advantages which
can change the patterns of their lives.
Many of these children have never held
a doll, never scribbled with crayons.
Meager environments have blunted their
curiosity. Some are spoken to so rarely
that they are unable to form sentences.
Head Start volunteers will read to chil
dren, take them on outings to zoos and
parks, organize creative play for them,
and help build the security and self-
confidence they need to succeed in
school. The rewards come when a with
drawn child begins to ask questions or
responds to the affection for which he
has been starved. Without such help,
many of these children would be headed
for school failure and the poverty cycle
which trapped their parents.
Many young people who are 18 or
older and can serve for a year enroll tor
training in VISTA —both to help others
and to enlarge their own capacities for
teaching, social work, or careers in so
ciology, economics, law, and other fields.
Home base for VISTAvolunteer groups
can be a city tenement row, a struggling
farm community, an Indian reservation,
a migrant labor camp, or a mental hos
pital. Volunteers may counsel school
dropouts, organize recreation programs,
tutor children who are behind In school,
explore job opportunities for the poor—
In short, do whatever Is needed to help
people find their way up from poverty.
Volunteers become respected members
of the communities where they work.
The pay is nominal —living expenses
plus $50 a month paid at the end of serv
ice. But the opportunities are great; you
can help pave the way for an America in
which the democratic ideal is big enough
to encompass everyone.

who live In need? Join the War on Poverty
