A Lilly Endowment grant of

“Our development program

St. Andrews is one of nine

summer.
“We plan a series of in
tensive sessions to enable
faculty members to improve
their skills as teachers, ad
visors and plaruiers,” says
Crossley.
Each summer session will
have four components:
^ademic management
seminars, teaching im
provement modules, in
terpersonal skills workshops
and personal growth ex
periences. While this will
include about 25 St. Andrews
faculty members this next
summer, a unique aspect of
the program will be that it will
bring in faculty members
from other small colleges so
that the total effect will be to
emich St. Andrews with the
experiences of others, and to
spread the effect of these
summer sessions to other
campuses.
At the conclusion of the
three-year process, St. An

it will consider demonstration
projects which will bring in
many administrators and
faculty from other small
colleges to learn what has

elsewhere.

Piccola^ Thompson
win LANCE awards
Greg Piccola, a freshman
from Johnstown, New York
and Managing Editor of THE
LANCE and Lin Thompson, a
senior from Shelby, North
Carolina and former Editor
have been named the winners
of the First Annual St. An
drews Journalism Awards, it
was announced today.
Piccola won the Thad Stem
Award for reporting ex
cellence for his four part
series during November,
December, and January on
problems with the food ser
vice.” Greg put an effort
above and beyond the normal
requirements of the job,” said
current editor Steve Newton,
“and consequently the entire
series had a definite positive
effect.”
The Sam Ragan Award for
editorial writing is applicable
to general editorial work or
reviews appearing in the last
year. Thompson was honored
for two items: his recent
review of Warren Carter’s
“Leave Your Sugar for the
Cold Morning” and for his
general contributions to the
paper over the past four
years. “Lin is one of those
people,” said Newton, “who
came along at a rough time
during the newspaper’s
existence and put it back on
the tracks. That it has stayed
there now for four years is a
tribute to how well he did his
job. We should be remiss if we
did not express our ap
preciation.”
After announcing the ap
pointment of two new student
members, Mickey Richey and
Sheila Haggerty, Chairman
William J. Loftus called the
Student Life Committee into
Executive session which
THE LANCE was not
alllowed to sit in on. Ten
minutes later, committee
member Steve Turner was
sent to deliver notification to
LANCE editor Steve Newton
that the student newspaper
was no longer allowed to
cover the meetings (see at
tached letter).
The meeting continued first
with a point of old business.
Chairman Loftus informed
the committee that the long-
lost Student Association By-
Laws, indeed, had surfaced
since SLC’s 10th meeting and
that the committee should
decide as to whether or not
these rules, not presently
printed in the Saltire, are still
in effect.
The basic question here
was; did the faculty and
students delete these by-laws
in 1975, when the present
Student Association Con
stitution was ratified, or does
the fact that they were not
included in ratification imply
their state? The committee
unanimously, or more
correctly, by concensus,
agreed that the intention,
most probably, was that the
Student Association By-Laws
were meant to stay part of the
Constitution and should be
printed in next year’s Saltire.
From this issue the Saltire
committee report was given
by Dean of Students, Robert
Claytor.
