THE LANCE Officuil Publication of the Student Rody, of St. Andrews Pf^esbyterian College Vol. 14 No. 18 ST. ANDREWS PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE, LAURINBURG, N. C.. Thursday, April 17,1975 Bottoms to Speak at Tonight’s Convocation Distinguished Dr. Lawrence Wendell Bot- Itoms, moderator of the Ipresbyterian College in the lunited States, will speak at Itonight’s spring convocation lin Harris Court. The 7:30 pjn. I address, which is open to the Ipublic, will be Dr. Bottoms’ Ifirst appearance at St. An- Idrews. A native of Selma, I Alabama, Dr. Bottoms is the I first black moderator of the I religious organization. He is a I former moderator of the Synod of Kentucky and the LouisviUe (Ky.) Presbytery. IA graduate of Geneva Collie in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania I and the Reformed I Presbyterian Seminary in Pit- 1 tsbur^, Dr. Bottoms received his D. D. from Davis and I Elions Collie. Prior to assuming his I current position as pastor of 1 Oakhurst Presbyterian Chur- I di in Decatur, Georgia, Bot- trans served for Twenty-three years as a member of the Presbyterian Church’s Board of Church Extension and the Board of National Ministries whidi succeeded it. An additional feature of the convocation will be the academic procession with whidi it will be begin and end. The faculty, garbed in the academic robes of their par ticular disciplines, will be joined by pastors of diurches in the Presbytery. By joining in the procession, the pastors will be demonstrating the vital link between faith and lear ning in the Biblical tradition. In point of fact, the black pulpit gown has its origins in the academic world, having been adopted for clerical wear by the clergy of Geneva, Swit zerland during the sixteenth century Reformation movement as a rebellion against the white priestly vestments worn by clergy of the Catholic Church. Ad ditionally, the black gown was also the everyday dress of teachers and students of the time, giving the gown’s use in religious affairs added significance, as it expressed the pastor’s role as “Teaching Elder” in his church and in “the priesthood of all believers”-a role whidi is fin ding renewed signifcance today as society finds itself shaped and influenced more and more by educational processes. •iv: Students planning to Uve off x campus during the 1975-76’.;: iiiij school year must apply for ap- proval to do so, the Office of ;v;:|Student Personnel Services ;:; iv;;: announced today. w Applications for permission :; i-x-.to live off campus may be j •:§;picked up at OSP office, and:-; j-i-imust be returned by April 24. jijiliPerson’s living off campus;:; ;;;:|:ithis year or who are on the off- liji.yampus priority list must sub- :; :;§^t a re-application to con-> ;^$l.nue their auto Scholars Announced The Office of Admissions an nounced last week the winners of St. Andrews’ hipest scholastic award, the Distinguished Scholars Award.

Fulcher’s SAS 102 To Offer Work Ethic Survey Have you ever thought what the meaning of work is to your personal attitudes and values in life? Most of us have asked these questions at one time or another, but not in depth. The SAS 102 class under the direction of Dr. Rodney Fulcher will administer a sur vey concerning work attitudes and ethics to the student body during the week of April 21-25. Fulcher’s course, entitled “Job and Career Choices,” has over the past semester studied the attidues collie- educated workers will have towards their careers. The students have also done research in the problems of American workers. Next week’s questionnaire will help the dass better distinguish what the St. Andrews student community considers to be meaningful work. The dass has been trying to learn how college educated wwkers go about discovering the op portunities open in their choice of careers, and the per sonal attitudes and assessments taken toward those new careers. jectives, survey methods and skills have been studied. Aiding the students have been Phil Bradley, Jim Putnam, and Rick Morgan contributing comments and suggestions on surveys and their own ex periences in survey ad- minlstratiai. Not only will the survey fulfill the objective goals of the SAS 102 class but it will help all of those involved to better formulate their own personal value assessments. All are encouraged to par ticipate. Bill Gaither and Jim Craig are involved in a survey role-play while To accfflnplish these ob- Rick Morgan and Phil Bradley give advice.
