Franz Stillfried - Honors
By MAUREEN INGALLS
Elections were held last
week for the Senior Colors
and Senior Class Speaker.
The winners were Royal Blue
and Franz Stillfried- Voted
upon from an able list of
contenders, Franz was
chosen to speak at the
Graduation Ceremony later
this spring,
this spring.
When asked about the
content of his speech, Franz
responded that the topic
would remain unannounced
at thist ime, but will prove to
be “very upbeat” and will
concern the 1982 Senior
Class and the St. Andrews
community.
He feels that graduation is
a time of “mixed emotions”
but wants to stress the
positiveness of this landmark
in one’s life. He did say,
however, thathis speech
“may cause some tears but
may dry some too.” Franz
will take additional thoughts
or suggstions about the
nature of jthe speech, but as
he states it,” that doesn’t
mean that I will necessarily
use them.”
What are Franza’s feelings
about St. Andrews? In his
words, his time here at St.
Andrews has been the most
“rewarding and happiest
years of my life, to date.” He
feels very positive about the
future and believes that he is
leaving here much more
“open-minded” and “outgo-
■ Franz, Stillfried ,
mg than how he was four
years ago. In remarking
about this year’s Senior
jclass, he described jthem as
“diverse, talented and uni
que in many ways.”
And as if that was not
enough. . .last week Franz
received notification of his
acceptance to Temple
University Law School in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
How does he feel about that
(he smile’s).
As a Politics major with an
emphasis ' in International
Affairs, franz has always
had law school in the back of
his mind during his stay here
at St. Andrews.. Taking
course such as African
Politics, Chinese Politics as
well as some of the other
specialized Politics courses,
has, as Franz stated,
prepared him “adequately”
for graduate training.
A native of Scottsville,
Virginia (population 300)
along with a keen interest in
people, Frar^ enjoys nature.
He would like one day to
become either a lawyer
specializing in environmental
law or civil rights. His in
terests prompted him to
become active here on cam
pus.
Franz’s work with the
PPC has helped educate
others as to the problems and
injustices that plague as in
dividuals. As a long time
Sierra club member he has
attempted through his
various activities to make
others more aware of en
vironmental and ecological
issues.
In reflecting upon his years
here at St. Andrews and the
coming graduation, Franz
stated “I’m proud to have
been affiliated with this class
and hope to keep up with
some, if not all of the
members of this class in the
years ahead. It will be hard
to say goodbye.”
European artists including
Pablo Picasso and Salvador
Dali. As a result, several of
his prints are quite rare and
not easily obtainable, which
gives the show an added
flavor.
The exhibit is being
curated by Miche Lareuse as
part of a Guided Indepen
dent Study project. Miche is
an Art Major,and plans to
pursue a career with his
father in arts management.
This project will give Miche a
taste of the business of art
before he graduates.
A part of his project will
provide educational informa
tion for gallery visitors on
printmaking techniques and
on the individual pieces on
display. This aspect of the
show is part of the St. An
drews Art Guild’s on-going
effort to further educate the
college community in the arts
while bringing quality ex
hibits to the campus.
Professor James Linehan
will give a demonstration at
the opening illustrating how
prints are actually made and
what materials are used to
make them. This will aid in
terested viewers in
distinguishing quality prints
from photocopies and
reprints being sold as
originals by art dealers to
day.
A show of this quality is a
treat for St. Andrews and an
opportunity no one should
miss. To celebrate this event
a special opening reception is
planned for Monday night at
8:00 p.m. in Vardell Hall.
Refreshments will be served
and the night should prove to
be exciting and enjoyable for
everyone. Be there or be
square!!!
