In Pursuit of Perfection
^Student Association Report
by Julie Norem
The Gathering Place is on the
way. Work will be started soon, and some
money has been raised by the students to
help. According to Student Association
Vice President David Perkinson, the
$2000 raised will probably be used to pur
chase a sound system. TTie dorms have
donated $1000 through the 100% For St.
Andrews Campaign, and President A.P.
Perkinson has matched that for a total of
Student arjwork might be
bought by the Student Association at the
end of this year. The Budget & Spccial
Projects Committee, chWed by John
Newman, is working on a proposal that the
S A buy student artwork to help decorate the
Association offices and conference room.
The idea is to promote the student body and
help them out in return.
Also the Budget & Special Proj
ects Committee is working on a proposal to
raise the Student Activity Fee. This fee is
included in the tuition. It pays for the
budget, the Lance and the Lamp and
Shield. It has been many years since it was
raised, and now to accomodate rising
Why can’t Johnny read ? There are likely
to be fifty reasons, and none have to do
with decoding skills. A teacher deals with
much more than a child’s ability to read
and write. Emotions, attitudes, and dreams
arc all dealt with in the classroom. A
teacher may show a child affection or
interest that he may not experience any
where else. Many roles are played by the
teacher, all of them cruci^ to each
individual student. If a child has nothing
to feel good about, then ultimately, that
person is headed for failure. If a teacher
can give that child a reason to hope or
dream, than the student is given a chance
to succeed. Johnny can’t read, a lot of
times, it is because he has no desire or
interest to. Children must want to read
before you can even begin word recogni-
tion,etc. If you can show children that you
believe in them, then they might start
feeling like they are worth something.
Then they can try to understand the
importance of reading, math, etc. In
summary, teaching involves much more
than lesson plans and grading papers, it
involves caring about others.

We really do try to be perfect.
Sometimes, however, we fall a bit short.
Now that we have had the time to stop and
catch our breath we can try to correct the
mistakes diat have popped up in the first
three issues of The Lance.
We know that there is no Laura

Apologies to Loma.
Denise Peck and Darren Hamil
ton were a bit miffed that they did not
receive bylines for the stories they had
written in the course of their duties as
communications assistant work-sUidy stu
dents in the office of communications
and marketing. Sorry Denise and Darren.
We will try to do better.
After last week’s paper had been
delivered to the printer we realized that we
had made a major omission in the story on
“Student Rights”. Not only did we leave
a major part of the story lying on the floor
of the Lance office, we neglected to credit
Craig Johnson with co-authorship. Hope
fully, at some point, we can run the story
again, in its entirety. In the meantime, we
wish to credit Craig along with Elisabeth
Ross, who waited patiently until we got
around to running the story. Sorry Craig,
Chris Wood thanked us for
omitting his name from the “Deadly Game
Story” last time. Sorry Chris.
These corrections are only the
ones we can think of while we are on
deadline. We are sure there are many more.
Please help keep us in line by bringing any
mistakes you see in print to our attention.
Wachovia Plans April Opening
For Campus Banic
In looking for yet another loca
tion for a branch office, Wachovia Bank
has purchased land from St. Andrews to
begin construction. The property, nearly
an acre, is located near the north enu-ance
to the school, at the intersection of
Dogwood Mile and Lauchwood Drive.
Construction has begun and, according to
a representative of Wachovia, is scheduled
to be completed by April.
