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.

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.
