versity and director of the P.E.N. project on
censorship; Robin West, professor of law at
the University of Maryland and Grace
Gibson, resident humanities scholar at St.
Andrews College. Other experts in the
field will also be invited to speak.
Each scholar will appear for a
public lecture in the evening at the Scotland
County Public Library on regularly sched
uled evenings from February through May.
The scholars will also field questions on the
St. Andrews campus the day of the lecture
and be available for discussion at midday in
an informal setting at Weymouth in South
ern Pines. All appearances will be open to
the public.
“We are delighted that the N.C.
Humanities Council and the National En
dowment for the Humanities have chosen
to fund this project,” Rigsbee said. “The
issues that we are interested in discussing
will be of great value to our students who
are plann ing to pursue careers in the media,
but more importantly, these are issues that
affect the daily lives of us all. I think this
gran t will enable S t. Andrews to perform an
important public service.
“Each of us needs to think care
fully about these issues and about how we
receive our information as well as the infor
mation that is received,” Rigsbee said.
St. Andrews’ new mass commu
nication major is designed with an empha
sis on ethical considerations in communi
cation.
St. Andrews is a fully-accr>. ted
four-year liberal arts college.

Task Force committee composed of David
Perkinson and myself, and furthermore;
numerous quality-of-life issues are being
placed on the table.
A couple of notes of encouraging
news: A Senate committee is working dili
gently on making the student Gathering
Place a reality. With a scheduled move of
the Bookstore within this month, construc
tion of the Gathering Place will hopefully
begin by December, (let’s keep our fingers
crossed).
The Bell Tower has been a topic of
growing concern. I have been told that the
Bell Tower is in need of clock repairs and
bell replacement. It will ring again. The
repairman is working on the clock, and you
can see that the light does shine again,
occasionally.
In closing, the S A is doing its best
to make substantive improvements and we
ask for your patience and support. If anyone
has any questions, suggestions, or com
plaints, please see any officer of the S A. If
he/she does not have an answer, we will do
our best to find you one. It may not be the
answer you want to hear, but it will be an
answer.

According to sources within and
outside the Student Association, the ad
ministration of this college is under strict
instructions to clean up the reputation of
this school, a reputation gained largely by
virtue of the drug-related death of a
student last year, and to avoid any future
liability.
Rules mustbe made and inforccd.
According to Wilson, if you are caught
with a bong, you’re going to get charged. If
you’re caught with a knife, you’re going to
get charged. What happened to littering,
loitering and singing off key?
Unless you subscribe to the the
ory that the only way to stay out of trouble
is to stay out of trouble, there is only one
option open to you if you are charged by
the attorney general. Plead not guilty and
demand a public hearing before the Stu-
dent-Faculty Hearing Court. Demand that
the student defense counsel, the attorney
general and the court do the jobs they were
elected to do. Let’s see if there is really any
justice to be had at St. Andrews.
Relocation continued from page 4
be a positive aspect.
Replacing AV in LA will be all of
the offices for Student Services. College
Work-Study, Financial Aid, and Career
Development will be there. Dr. Ronnie
Newman will move across the lake from
the Student Life Office. Also included will
be an interview room where classes on
interviewing techniques will be held.
Student Services will also house
a Resource Library. A contribution by
Mrs. Jack Ferren, which was matched by
IBM, will be used to improve this library.
The offices should be completed
within the next few weeks.
The remaining question is what
will happen to AV. Paul Chapel, in his
second year of work-study in the AV
center, chuckled when he said that the low
ceiling in the present location causes some
of the tall professors not to be able to stand
there.
Debate continued from page I
participated in this year and has been hired
to coach the Johns Hopkins University
team upon his graduation. He is consid
ered the number one debator on the parlia
mentary debate circuit.
Parliamentary debate differs from
the traditional on-topic debate, according
to Atchison. “It’s all common knowl
edge,” Atchison said. “The teams form a
debatable topic and the team which dis
plays the best argument and communicates
it effectively wins. |
“Topics can range from the War
Powers Act being invoked by congress to
why violent cartoons should be taken off of
television,” Atchison said.
“Interest has grown steadily and
it’s never too late to get involved,”
Atchison said of the team, which plans
uips to Yale, Princeton and New York
University in the spring. “No prior experi
ence is necessary.
“How could you not like beating
teams the caliber of Princeton, Yale and
Harvard in anything academic?” Atchison
said. “It feels like beating the UNC Basket
ball team.”
Association continued from page 4
A new coin-operated copy
machine for the library is on the way. Also
relief for the chair-less people in Orange is
coming; chairs have been ordered and will
arrive soon. Also, the Senate is looking
into the possibility of placing more change
machines on campus. Possible locations
are the Commuter Student Lounge and the
new Gathering Place.
The Senate and Cabinet would
like to thank the whole Student Body for
making the Presidential Celebration a
success.
Remember, the Senate is for
you, the students of St. Andrews. If you
have any comments or suggestions, SEE
YOUR SENATOR!

awards represent “contributions made to
the arts in North Carolina in the same spirit
that Sam has made those contributions,”
according to chairman of the Ragan Award
committee and St. Andrews Writer-In-
Residence Ron Bayes.
Previous award winners include
former Secretary of Cultural Resources,
Sara Hodgkins of Southern Pines; execu
tive director of Reynolda House in
Winson-Salem, Nicholas Bragg; editor of
fhe Faj;etteville Times, Roy Parker; and
founder of the Inteiiiational Festival of
Dance in Durham, Ella Fountain Pratt.

arise out of the games.
“The main purpose of the
intramural program is to get students in
volved in school activities,” explained Jim
Reese. “A few years ago the Student Life
Office took a survey and found out the
sports that were most popular among the
student body and from those surveys they
decided what sports would be incorporated
into the intramural program.
“The program is really good for
getting students involved in school-rclatcd
activities and athletics. Hopefully, it also
promotes good sportsmanship within the
school, though we have been having some
problems with that this year.”
The problems of which Jim
speaks are mainly referee problems. The
refs for the ganies are upper-classmen who
have played intramural football before and
understand the rules of the game. The
problem is that it is very difficult to find
upper-classmen who are willing to ref
because most of them also have games that
day and are trying to conserve their
strength and good temper, because being
a referee is tiring, both physically and
emotionally.
“No one really wants to be the
one getting yelled at,” shrugged Jim. “We
pay each student ref three dollars a game,
but it’s still hard to find guys to do it. Also,
we need more than two refs a game,
because two guys just can’t see everything
that goes on. The only problem is that we
can’t afford more than two guys a game.”
Despite the problems, the players
usually manage to have fun on the field.
The teams are trying to accumulate records
good enough to get them into the playoffs,
the date for which has not yet been set. The
team wh ich comes out on top in the playoffs
will get tee-shirts for each of the members
which say “1987 Intramural Football
Champs”.
“Intramurals are a great way for
a small school to get football teams to
gether,” one player said. “And, even
though there are some problems with the
program, I think just about eveyone has a
good time out there. Why else would they
keep on playing?”
