Mrs. Chay’s Store A Delight
“SerendijMty”, as the Ox
ford Dictionary defines it, is
the making of an unexpected
or happy discovery while
looking for something else
altogether. Students who
frequent the ^ores in the
Brooks Shopping Colter at
1410 S. Main will experience
just su(^h a discovery by
visiting “SerendijHty”, a new
natural foods store recently
opened by Mrs. June Chay.
Mrs. Chay, circulation
librarian at St. Andrews, says
her interest in natural foods
was the catalyst that led to
the opening of the store. That
interest goes back to 1954,
when she came to America
from Korea.
“At that time,” she tdd
LANCE, “I thought-as so
many foreigners do-that
everyone in America was
wealthy and the reason there
were so many overweight
people was because they all
ate well.” She soon learned,
however, of Americans’
propensity for eating for
eating’s sake-“people con
sume so many empty
calories!’’—and of the
diminished protein and
vitamin value of processed
foods. “With all the processes
and additives and colorings
and preservatives added to
food, very little of its nutritive
value is Irft when it reaches
the plate,” she says.
Concluding that too few
people reaaly known what
they are eating and need to be
eating, Mrs. Chay opened
Laurinburg was back to
normal early this week after a
two day manhunt for a man
accused of murdering a
Wilmington youth and
shooting a highway
patrolman outside town Thur
sday. The suspect was ap
prehended near Pate-Gardner
School in Gibson Friday and
c^tured without a struggle.
Gregray Hudson Jones, 26,
calmly turned himself into a
team of law enforcement of
ficers as they were checking
the small primary grade
school about 2:30 Saturday.
He is charged not only with
felcHuous assault on Trooper
Harry E. Stegall but with one
count of murder in
WUmington, two other counts
(rf felwiious assault and also
with first degree burglary.
Today law officers were
continuing their search for the
Jones vehicle and for the
firearm used to wound Stegall.
The man who had been
declared an outlaw Friday
morning reportedly called to
the law men from a nearby
soybean fidd and quitely
asked if he could turn himself
in. He was ordered to drop his
pistol. The officers stated that
he tossed the weapon-the .357
calibre service pistol taken
from Trooper Stegall’s per-
s(m-onto the ground and came
forward with his hands above
his head.
Outlaw status means that a
person may be shot wi sight if
he fails to surrender when
asked to do so.
Tired and dirty, Jones was
immediately transported to
the Scotland county court
house, where he was
sequestered for questioning
for about an hour in the grand
jury room. He was later
moved down a rear hallway
directly into the magistrate’s
office for a bond hearing
before Magistrate Vivian Mc
Call.
Jones’ arrest came as the
climax of a two-day search
for the man accused in the
Thursday morning slaying of
a Wilmington youth, Peter
Fearii®, 17, and the injiffy of
two teenage companions.
His arrest ended a massive
search extending into five
states. Within minutes after
the shooting of tiie highway
patrolman in Laurinburg
Friday morning, roadblocks
had been set tp throughout

To honor the 90th Mrthday of
the late Ezra Pound, St. An
drews is planning a two-day
festival in celebraticm of one of
America’s great men of let
ters. The festival will take
place Oct. 28 and 29, the two
days priffl- to the poet’s bir
thday, and will feature an ad
dress by Pound’s publisher-.
James Laughlin—and a per
formance of a readers’ theater
event based, on selections of
Pound’s poetry.
The late American ex
patriate poet has been called
many things, both favorable
and unfavorable. The U.S.
government, during World
War II, branded Pound a
traitor to his country, while a
whole generatiai of American
poets and writers have looked
to Pound as “the grandfather
of modem poetry.”
Whatever one might think of
Pound’s controversial
economic and political
pronouncements, his influence
over the current of American
poetry since the nineteen-
twenties is undeniable.
At the featured event of St.
Andrews’ Ezra Pound
Festival, “A Dialogue with
James Laughlin,” Pound’s
publisher and close friend
Laughlin will discuss the
poet’s economics as well as his
art. The event is scheduled for
Tu^day evening, Oct. 28 at 8
pjn. in the college’s Liberal
Arts Auditorium.
Laughlin, founder and
publisher rf New Directions
Press, puldished the bulk of
Pound’s wOTk in the United
States, and was also a close
friend and student of the poet.
The most significant
publisher of modern
American poetry, prose and
drama, Laughlin has
published the work of William
Carlos Williams, Denise
Levertov, Tennessee
Williams, Charles Olson,
Henry Miller, Dylan Thomas,
Carson McCullars, Gary
Snyder, Kenneth Patchen,
Jonathan Williams, Robert
Duncan and Lawrence
Ferlinghetti, along With manv
