    Management Report Lists SA In Good Shape

“St. Andrews Presbyterian
College is the best managed
private institution I know of,”
says Edward J. Mack, chair
man of the Board of Trustees
of the coUege.
A dozen leading Laurinburg
citizens were introduced Wed
nesday afternoon to a New
“Manageme'’* Report” just
completed by President A. P.,
perkinson, Jr., and handed out
at a luncheon on the campus.
“While not all problems
have been completely
resolved, the progress made
since 1975 is most significant,”
Mack writes in the report. He
added that those who support
the instituticm “are getting
more value for their in
vestment than in any similar
institution” he knows of. Mack
is executive vice president of
Burlington Indistries, Inc.,
and has also served on a num
ber of institutional boards.
In Mack’s satement he attr-
butes the major share of the
credit for improvements to
Perkinson, a revitalized
Board, the dedicated work of
faculty, administrators, and
students, and “to the com
mitment to excel shared by
every manber of the St. An
drews community.”
Based on a six-year plan
from the beginning of his
presidency in 1975 through
1981, Perkinson sets goals to
include enrollment of 700 to
750, an enriched academic
program, improved relation
ships with all constitutents of
the college, a faculty-student
raUon of 1 to 15 and con
siderable faculty develop-

“SEASONS AND DAYS” WIN ROANOKE
CHOWAN POETRY AWARD
Dean Claytor
Receives Doctorate
St. Andrews’ Dean of
Students, Robert B. Claytor,
recently received his Ph. D. in
higher education ad
ministration from the
University of Oklahoma at
Norman, Okla. The subject of
his discertation was a study of
the institutional “goal-
intentions” and “goal-
practices” of Oklahoma City
University, a Methodist school
near Norman. Using two types
of questionaires. Dean Clajtor
surveyed 240 people who had a
full-time involvement with the
school, including ad
ministrators, professors,
graduate and undergraduate
students. Both of' the
questionnaires were
developed from a list of
twenty possible institutional
goals, in areas ranging from
“Academic Development” to
“Individual Personal
Development.” The first of the
questionaires was designed to
determine the relative im
portance that these goals held
in the eyes of the college
community. The second
questionaire sought to
determine the amount of
practical emphasis that was
placed in those intended goals.
As a whole, the study was an
attempt to discover which of
the possible goals were con
sidered most important goals
wee actually the ones that
were being emphasized in
practice. Dean Claytor points
out that such a study could
help a school to re-asses its
objectives and re-direct its
practices toward fulfilling
those intended goals.
Dean Claytor has previously
attended Baria College in
Kentucky, where he received
his bachelor’s degree, and
Duke University. As an or
dained Methodist minister.
Dean Claytor says that he
prefers the small church-
related college to the larger
university. He feels that small
colleges dedicate more time to
poignant internal matters,
such as determining their
objectives.
I
SO MAYBE IT’S NOT ACTUALLY THE BOOK THAT WON
THE AWARD, but St. Andrews Press Director Ron Bayes was
so happy at the thought of “Seasons and Days” winning the
Roanoke-Chowan Award we didn’t have the heart to tell him.

Chamber Singers Feature
Christmas Music
Black Comedy To Open
“Black Comedy,” a play by
Peter Shaffer, will be
presented on two nights next
week. The first showing is on
Tuesday, December 11, at 8 p.
m. The second performance is
on Wednesday, December 13
at 10 p. m. On both evenings
the play will be held in the LA
Auditorium.
This play is a student-
directed experimental
theater. Directing the play is
David Miller. Peg Kayes is the
Assistant Director.
“Black Comedy” centers
around a young sculptor
named Brindsley. Brindsley is
trying to impress Colonel
Melkett, the father of his
debutante fiancee, Carol. To
make himself appear well-off,
Brindsley steals furniture
from his neighbor, Harold, a
collector of antique china.
However, an untimely black
out occurs, during which Clea,
Brindsley’s ex-mistress,
shows up. Brindsley’s
problems are only com
plicated by the other
characters brought together
in his apartment because of

The Chamber Singers of St.
Andrews Presbyterian
College will present a public
concert at 8 o'clock Friday
evening in the Liberal Arts
auditorium on the campus.
The musical selections by
Director Lee R. Kesselman
feature a wide range of sacred
and secular music, with an
emphasis on the Christmas
season. The Chamber Singers
put in their final rehearsals
for this appearance in a four-
day tour in North Carolina last
weekend.
Opening with a series of
ma^igals, the Singers will
present “Fire, Fire My
Heart!” (Morley), “Bonjour,
Mnn Coeur” (di Lasso),
“Occhi lucenti e belli”
(Marenzio) and “Ein Heinlein
Weiss” (Scandello).
A section of sacred music
begins with 14th century
material and continues to
contemporary works: “Agnus
Dei” from the “Notre Dame
Mass” (Machut), “Praise Ye
the Lord, ye Children” (Tye),
“Ad t, Domine” (Bauro), “A
Cup of Rejoicing”, a Shaker
tune arranged by Kesselman,
and “From an Unknown
Past” (Rorem).
After the intermission they
will sing three Johannes
Brahms songs, with Susan
Russell of Greensboro as
soprano soloist. Two con
temporary selections will be
“Sound Patterns” (Oliveros)
and Rondes” (Rabe), with
Chris Carter as the tenor
soloist.
For the first time in its
history, the St. Andrews Press
has had one of its publications,
“Seasons and Days,” a collec
tion of poems by Mary Lou
Medley, win the coveted
Roanoke-Chowan Poetry
Award.
Presentation of the cup was
made to Miss Medley during
culture week activities in
Raleigh.
“We are so very pleased
that this award has come to a
St. Andrews Press book,” says
Ronald Bayes, director of the
Press “and feel that it signifies
a coming of age for ou*-
publishing efforts.”
Bayes, himself, received the
award five years ago for his
own poetic works.
Miss Medley is employed by
the Messenger and In
telligencer newspaper of
Wadesboro, where she makes
her home.
“Seasons and Days” is a
delightful collection of
Southern traditional poetry.
“Nature and love and humor
guide the poet in this work,”
says Bayes of the book.
One brief example of her
light-hearted verse:
I hope that I may live to see
this world a place more litter
free,
And all the dastard litter
bugs sleeping deep ’neath
grassy rugs.
Music of Advent will close
the evening: “Wassail Song”
(arr. Shaw-Paker), “Lo! How
a Rose E’er Blooming” (arr.
Distler), “In Amber Light”
(Yoshiaka) and “Wassail
Song’ ’ (arr. by Ralph Vaughn
Williams).
Did you ever wonder
how far gone you could
be after a term at Ox
ford. Lin Thompson
tells all, or at least
some, on todays edi
torial page.
