^^Shadow
Box^^ To Be
Presented
RUSSELL STRONG
Death and coping are the
major themes of “The Shadow
Box,” now in rehearsal at St.
Andrews Presbyterian
College, and plaiuied for
staging in the Liberal Arts
Auditorium April 27-29.
This is the fourth and final
production of the year for the
Highland Players, and is
being directed by Brad Ford.
Winner of the 1977 Pulitzer
Prize for drama, “The
Shadow Box,” is a con
temporary drama dealing
with an experimental village
on the grounds of a hospital in
California.
Each of the three cottages
houses a terminally ill cancer
patient, and family.
Playwright Michael
Christopher focuses on the
interactions of family
members, and explores the
scope of individual emotions
through the devices of an
interviewer and of overlap
ping scenes in the various
cottages.
“I think ‘The Shadow Box’
does not fall into an emotinal
cesspool,” says Ford, “and
inst^d emerges shining as a
brilliant picture of life. It
promises to be a most
provocative ending to the
current season.”
As is Ford’s style, the stage
is being completely rebuilt to
show the three separate
cottages at the same time, and
also extends down in front of
the stage. Ford drama en
thusiasts long ago learned to
expect a lot of movement
when he is directing.
Ann Crocker
filled was that of Attorney
General by Wynne Segal over
Scott Noley
The College Union Board
officers for next year will be;
Harvie Jordan, President;
and Rick Pope, Vice-
President. The college
Christian Coimcil will be lead

Vice-President will be Carol
Moffet, who defeated Nancy
Henry. Chris Werth ran un
contested for Secretary of the
CCC.
Serving one year terms on
next year’s Judicial Board
will be: Dean Ruff, Jim
Baynes and Kyle Gillespie.
Jeff Campbell and Richard
Thomas won the two year
positions over Kevin Wagner
and Granville Keys.
Jim Baynes wiD also hold
the PIRC seat. One final set of
results is Rick Pumphrey and
Janet Cote defeating Ed
Cashwell for positions on the
Student-Faculty Appelate
Board.
Harvie Jordan, newly-
elected CUB President, ex
pressed his thoughts on the
election, “I think that the CUB
had a very successful year. I
hope to do as well next year.
But in order to have a good
year, I need the help and
support of the student body
that has elected me.
Congratulations to Rick Pope.”
New Check Policy
Effective April 1, 1979, the
Business Office will affect a
policy of making a five dollar
($5.00) charge on all checks
that are returned from the
bank for any reason. If anyone
submits a check for cashing
and the check is returned , in
addition to the five dollars
($5.00) charge, further check
cashing privileges will be
forfeited.
While St. Andrews is willing
to extend check cashing
provileges to all “on campus”
personnel, there has been
abuse of the privilege. The
amount of time and work
required to account for and
collect aU returned checks
becomes an unneccessary
increase in the work load of
the Business Office.
Postal Art Exhibited
Anna Bananna, Madame X,
George of Georgia, R. Mutt,
Irene Dogmatic and Lana
Lust are just a very few of the
contemporary artists who
Local Merchants Cite St. Andrews
Students For Bouncing Checks
Last fall, as a result of PIRG
DAZE, one suggestion which
was sent to PIRG for a
possible local research project
was “find out why merchants
in town won’t accept checks
from St. Andrews students
anymore.”
First of all, there are very
few merchants who will not
accept checks from St. An
drews students alone.
. Sbce this habit of bouncing
checks is not only a college
problem but also a local one,
many businesses avoid the
situtation entirely.
Most of these merchants
have decided not to accept
checks at all, because it is
troublesome for them to try
and collect from students who
go home for the summer or
vacations or whose bank is not
in the area.
In a canvas of 12 local
businesses which see most of
the student trade. Bad
checking writing by St. An
drews students is found to be
quite widespread. For
example;
K-Mart - A limit of $10 is now
put on checks from St. An
drews students with out-of-
town checking (also the limit
on all out-of-town checks).
Students who do not live in the
area are hard to collect from,
so this keeps the store’s
money loss at a minimum. K-
Mart does not have a serious
problem with bouncing
checks, but if a student
bounces a check for the second
time at K-Mart, they are not
allowed to write checks for
any reason in the future. (This
same policy exists for non
students as well). There are a
number of St. Andrews
Cheri Shapiro
students on this list.
Revco - As at K-Mart, after
two bad checks, you cannot
write a check here. Ap
proximately 10 people, all St.
Andrews students, still have
unpaid bad checks here, or
have written more than one
bad check so they are on this
list.
Harris Teeter - Last fall,
Harris Teeter had a serious
problem with bad checks from
St. Andrews students and still
have 3 or 4 that have not been
made good. If these checks
are not made good, their
signers will have to face the
magistrate.
Golden Corral - This
business has been very patient
with St. Andrews students,
often waiving the service
charge, if the student makes a
bad check good inunediately.
Still holding 3 or 4 unpaid
checks and receiving 2 or 3
checks a week that bounce
from St Andrews, they are
paying for their patience. At
the present, there are five S.A.
students on their “accept no
check” list.
McDonald’s - No checks
accepted from anyone. S.A.
students were also members
of the group bouncing checks
which caused this business to
decide not to accept checks at
all.
Pizza Inn - This establish
ment would really have
problems but they often call
on Campus Security to collect
their outstanding checks.
They receive about 2 or 3 bad
checks from S.A. every two
weeks. Writing two bad
checks here puts the con
sumer on their “no
checks”list, too.
Convenient - This business
has a no check list which
features a few S.A. regulars.
They get 2 or 3 a week that
bounce - all from this campus.
Pantry - They accept no
checks from out of town,
especially St. Andrews
checks. They still have 2 or 3
bad checks to collect on, and

Gerardi Studies
Handicapped
Ms. Helen Geradi, a faculty
member at Kingsboro
Community College in New
York City, is a frequent visitor
on the campus of St. Andrews
Presbyterian College - the
college and its program for
the education of the or-
thopedically handicapped
being the su^ect of her
doctoral dissertation.
A tentative working title for
her dissertation is; “A Case
Study of St. Andrews,
Focusing on Education of the
Disabled Student.”
She is an associate professor
of health, physical ^ucation
and recreation at Kingsboro,
while she is working on her
doctorate under Dr. Walter
Sindlinger at Teachers
College, Columbia University.
Ms. Geradiu holds two
degrees and a certificate in
administration from Hunter
College in New York.
During her current three-
week stay on the campus she
has had an opportunity to talk
with each of the handicapped
students.
have their works exhibited in
the new show just opened this
week at the Vardell Gallery,
St. Andrews Presbyterian
College.
It is officially the First
Annual Dixie Postal Art Show.
Cowboy Bob, better known
perhaps as Prof. Jim Linehan,
says that Postal Artists
frequently use assumed
names for their works, which
they wiD send anywhere to be
shown for the cost of a postage
stamp.
“Postal Art utilizes the
mundane, the everyday, to
create with,” says Linehan.
“These creations are sent to
interested persons as a way of
communicating. Postal Art is
a very democratic, populist
art.”
There are over 400 pieces'-
from 200 artists, from 10
different countries, now being
displayed at St. Andrews.
Everything that is received is
shown.
“The quality ranges from
slickly printed, professional
pieces to rather shabby and
awful bits of flotsam,” ex
plains Linehan, to the
uninitiated.
He continues, that Postal
Art is inexpensive, im
mediate, friendly, lively, and
a reasotjably crazy form of art
conununication that relies on
everyday means to convey
ideas to a wide spectrum
people.
Students may view
the entries for the
McGaw Chair Con
test, presently on dis
play in the main loun
ge of the Belk Center.
Winners will be an
nounced in May.
