A Career Day on Wednesday,

by the Board of Advisors of
Gardner-Webb College, the first of
its kind on this campus.
The purpose of the day will be

Alpha-Omega Players, Repertory
Theatre of America, traveled more
than 600,000 miles in the last four
years and presented more than
2,000 performances in 45 states.
This ranks them as one of the
most active touring theatre groups
in the country. Drexel H. Riley is
the producer-director of the group.
Selected highlights from Os
borne’s “Luther” will portray this
Sixteenth Century “angry young
man” in a passionate struggle with
his own conscience and his revolt
against the authorities of the
Catholic Church, which led to Pro
testantism. Luther was searching
for a faith to hold when he be
came beset with disbelief in The
Establishment — a search with
which many young people in to
day’s struggle can identify.
Though Martin Luther provoked
bitter controversy, not to n ention
200 years of religious wars, Os
borne’s play about him provoked
no particular controversy in its
original London and New York
presentations. Audiences of all
faiths regarded it not as religious
history, nor even as a biography,
but as a sweeping drama of size
and power about the most pro
found human feelings.
The play won the New York
Drama Critics’ Circle Award and
the Tony Award of the 1963-1964
season. The English Playwright,
John Osborne achieved world re-
known with his play "Look Back
in Anger” in the mid-1950’s and
also is authorship of the Oscar-
winning movie, "Tom Jones.”

AlphaNu Omega
After many weeks of hard work
reorganizing Alpha Nu Omega,
this club officially became “Alpha
Nu Omega, Inner-Club Council of
Gardner-Webb College” on Feb
ruary 8, 1972.
The club’s staled purposes are
to unify all campus activities, co
ordinate organizational activities,
initiate new projects and club par
ticipation, promote interest and
participation of inactive organiza
tions, co-ordinate the schedule of
organizational meetings, and facili
tate communication among campus
A recognized club is one which
has been approved by a majority
vote of the Inner-Club Council
and the Student Life Committee
and has complied with the policies
set forth by the club. A club which
is not recognized has no right to
the meeting places on campus, the
fi.iancial guidelines of the college
for clubs, and is therefore not
recognized or non-existant.
There are many clubs on campus
which have no record of being in
existance with the Student Activi
ties Office, or with the Inner-Club
CoSncil. These clubs will be drop
ped from record if no one is noti
fied of their intention of member
ship in the Inner-Club Council.
They must meet the requirements
which include submitting a consti
tution of their club.

needs from this year and the anti
cipated needs for next year. The
budget was submitted by president
Jeff Cranford.
