Sexuality To Be Explored In Seminars
The College Christian Coun
cil is sponsoring six
workshops throughout this up
coming week dealing with
human sexuality and its un
derstanding.
“We have seen a great need
for students to understand
themselves as sexual beings,”
Ms. Fillmore explains. “We
hope that the answer to such
an understanding can be
found by students who par
ticipate in the discussions and
group meetings with planned
speakers during the week of
February 14-20.”
“Bara Ish - Bara Isha : An
Exploration of Human
Sexuality” is the title of
CCC’s human sexuality week.
The title, Ms. Fillmore says,
is derived from the Hebrews
words for “created man and
created woman”.
The week will begin with a
panel discussion at 7 p.m.
Monday featuring Dr.
Douglas Hix, pastor of
Laurinburg Presbyterian
Church, and philosophy
professor William Alexander
and Ms. Martha Marks, both
of the St. Andrews faculty.
According to Ms. Fillmore,
each member of the panel will
approach the topic of human
sexuality from a different
angle. Hix will talk about the
theology of human sexuality,
while Alexander will consider
the philosophy of human
sexuality. Ms. Marks will
present an objective view of
society’s attitude toward
human sexuality and its alter-
naives.
A former St. Andrews
student and director of
Lighthouse, a nonprofessional
referral and helrisis center,
Mary Lou Brown, will be
featured at 7 p.m. Tuesday
when she talks to students
about rape and the attitude of
society toward rape.

Unpublished- New
Literary Magazine
By Steven Kunkle, Staff Writer
“We’re ccmvinced that there are a lot of good writers here at
St. Andrews who haven’t been published for one reason or
another,” says Bob Haley, liiat’s where the idea for
Unpublished, a literary magazine created by a group of St.
Andrews students, came from.
Unpublished is the brainchild of Haley, Jim Privette, Mitch
Parker, Earl Roberts, and Ellen Tosh. “We’re accepting
contributions now, and so far have only had a rather limited
response. Anything we like we’ll print, whether it’s poetry,
essays, cartoons, photos, satire, or anything else.” The
magazine’s crators are encouraging all students, faculty, and
administration to contribute any writings or sketches tiiey have
done, provided they have not been previously published. This is
an opportunity for everyone in our conraiunity to share their
creative works, without feeling the pressure of submitting a
masterpiece.
Unpublished will be published sometime in February, in an
issue to number 20 to 40 pages, with 500 copies to be distributed
free. If the magazine is well received, it will be continued on a
regular basis.
Articles to be printed will include one how to raise hogs, and
another on how to tear down a house. Because of its diverse
sources Unpublished should exhibit a wide variety of interests
and styles.
All contributions should be sent to campus mailboxes no. 855
or no. 42.
