Development Officer
Gains New Position
Mr. Sebastian Sommer, now
development officer of St. An
drews, will became executive di
rector of the Winston-Salem
Foundation, Inc., in early
March.
President Ansley C. Moore in
making the announcement said,
"It is with deep regret and a
genuine feeling of sadness that
I have accepted Sebastian Som
mer’s resignation. We are de
lighted that others have recog
nized his fine talents, but he
will be sorely missed, partly be
cause he is my friend and also
because he has brought tremen
dous strength to this entire en
terprise. St. Andrews owes him
a great debt, and we wish him
well in his new undertaking,”
Sommer came to St. An
drews in August, 1960, from
working as a campaign direc
tor for Ketchum, Inc. Previous
ly he had been assistant to the
director of the Southern Reg
ional Education Board in At
lanta, news editor of the Scot
land Neck Commonwealth, and
state photographer for the De
partment of Conservation and
Development in Raleigh.
With the help of Mr. Hanna
and Mr. Vaughn, a building lo
cated behind the Home Manage
ment House has been procured
for the purpose of setting up a
ham radio station that will be
a permanent fixture on St. An
drew’s campus. The building is
to be repaired, electrical wiring
to run the equipment and heat
ing facilities will be installed.
The plans for the WSAP broad
casting station were drawn up
by Mr, McLeod, a member of
the Lumberton Community who
will also help with the plans for
the ham radio station.
Since the beginning of the
year progress has been made
toward this new phase of the
Radio Club. Mr. David McLean,
the club’s sponsor, has located
equipment that will be used;
further needs in this area wiU
be met by people outside the
campus who wish to donate
equipment, and by the school.
The ham radio station will
be a member of RACES (Radio
Amateur Conrununications Em
ergency System). For all those
interested, classes wUl be con
ducted in radio theory and
Morse Code in order that stu
dents can qualify for a ham
radio operator’s license. A stu
dent emergency station to han
dle any immediate communica
tion problems is included in the
plans. A Civil Defense program
may be added later.
The Radio Club of St. An
drews is striving to serve the
students in every way possible.
Let’s say “thanks” and support
the club that makes the voice
of St. Andrews audible.

President Moore states that
this new law will go in-to ef
fect on a trial basis beginning
second semester.
Plans are now complete for a
shift in the administrative per
sonnel of the College. Begin
ning in January, Mr. Rodger
W. Decker who at present is the
Dean of Admissions for St. An
drews will also undertake add
ed duties as Assistant Dean of
the College. Mr. Decker’s office
will be moved to the Liberal
Ants and Science Building early
in the second semester. Present
plans provide for him to occupy
the office space which was em-
tied when Mr. Sommer, Devel
opment Officer of the College,
moved to his new ofice in the
State Bank Building of Laurin-
burg.
Mr. James McRae, who was
formerly associated with the
Registrar’s Office, has been
working on his degree from the
University of North Carolina
He will complete the necessary
work at Chapel Hill and rejoin
the Registrar’s staff as Office
Manager later this month.
Dr. Moore emphasizes that
this step is being made to ex
pand the College’s program of
student recruitment and to re
vise and strengthen the aca
demic program. “Mr. Decker’s
effectiveness in both of these
areas will be invaluable to the
college now and in its future.”
