Twas the weekend before Christmas Break and all though the school
St. Androids were partying like nobody’s fool.
Everyone was blowing off work for the day
in hope that term papers would just go away.
No one was nestled all snug in their bed.
Visions of frippery filled everyone’s head
And DML in Winston and all the Concord gals
Were sending out invites to all of their pals.
When down in DML there arose such a clatter
Robbie had jumped out of bed to deal with his bladder.
He leapt into the suite lounge and started to run
Everyone would arrive soon and nothing had been done.
The monkey on the wall of the new-painted suite
looked down upon Bill Cox and gave him a wink.
Suddenly the suite was decorated, with tinsel and lights
and all the guys knew it would be a great night.
And what to their wandering eyes should appear
but a group of Granvillites bringing liquid cheer.
The party had started, the music was loud,
the once empty suite lounge now held a big crowd.
Faster than security’s golfcart, Dave Boisvert learned the game.
With mistletoe in hand he called each girl’s name.
Oh Sharon, oh Tina, oh Sarah, oh Jane,
Oh Lisa, oh Shonny, oh he’s so vain.
Cheer was a success, everyone had a ball
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!
It was already New Year’s, in Cocord’s eyes.
Girls picked out their dresses and grabbed their best guys.
Everyone laughed and ate and danced with their dear
and when midnight struck they brought in the New Year?
And then in a twinkle they saw on the stage
Allison Terrill playing drums in a rage.
As they threw up confetti and tripped on balloons
Tim Freeman came in and not a bit too soon.
He had a cheesy grin and a little round belly
That shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf
And they laughed when they saw him in spite of themselves.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
soon wooed all the girls, and towards him they fled.
He said not a word but went straight to his work.
The girls loved his dancing, they all went berzerk.
The party was soon ended, and all gave a sigh.
Now papers are due and we all want to die.
But one last thing before the exams you must take.
Happy Holidays to all and to all a good break!
P.S. Never forget, whether you’re near or you’re far
We saw what you did and we know you are.
New Activities Bus
Arrives This Month
St. Andrews Day a Success - Blue and white could be seen everywhere, as the St. Andrews commu
nity celebrated St. Andrews Day.
This tradition has been celebrated for centuries by the Church. St. Andrew s Day recognizes the
exemplary character of the disciple who was first to respond to Jesus call.
The day began with a parade led by the Bagpipe Band. The procession led to the Belk Center where
there was a short Worship Service. The guests were then treated to a light breakfast of hot St. Andrews
Cross Buns. (Photo by Rooney Coffman)
Patty Wilson to Combat
Abuse of Drugs in the SA
By John Cohen
In its most recent attempt to combat
the abuse of drugs and alcohol on
campus, the Student Life Office, with
the help of a federal grant, sought
someone to establish and coordinate an
anti-drug and alcohol abuse program
on campus. They chose a person named
Before coming here, Patty lived in
Ohio. She then spent four years at UNC-
Greensboro, where she got a PhD in
Child Development and Family Rela
tions, with a specialization in Public
Health Education. While Patty has never
done this kind of work before, she has
had four years of college teaching
experience at UNC-Greensboro.
The program Patty has in mind is the
offshoot of a (Federal) “FIPSE” grant,
a grant providing money for colleges to
establish drug and alcohol use and
awareness programming. She wants to
develop a “resource room,” a room
containing “films, books, pamphlets,
and all other information related to drug
and alcohol use and abuse.” She also
wants to train some students to be “peer
educators,” students who could leam
about the dangers of drug and alcohol
abuse and share information with other
people on and off campus. “I think the
students at St. Andrews depend on each
other a lot for information, so what
better way to get accurate information
to them than through their peers?” Patty
To Patty, drugs and alcohol become
a problem when they “interfere with the
day-to-day functioning of an individ
ual,” and “prevent people from living

up to their full potential,” although she
doesn’t think that the line between use
and abuse is the same for everyone.
Patty hopes that her program will “help
faculty, staff, and students understand
the difference between the use and abuse
of drugs and alcohol, both for them
selves and for other people.” She be
lieves the problem is caused by a com
bination of heredity and peer pressure.
Interestingly enough, in spite of the
drug and alcohol problems on this and
other college campuses, Patty is quite
pleased with this generation of college
students. She said that she was “im
pressed with the way that they stand up
for their values,” and that this was “real
energizing” (a big inspiration) for her.
Commenting on her opinion of St.
Andrews, Patty praised the diversity.
She liked the wide range of political
and social values among the students,
faculty, and staff.
Patty said that she would be happy
to meet other students and even talk to
them aboutdrugs and alcohol. Heroffice
is located in Suite 3 of Pate Hall, and
she is usually on campus anytime
Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m.

St. Andrews is set to ride in style.
Later this month a new activities bus
will be arriving. The bus is a sleeker
version of a school bus that has been
customized for St. Andrews use. The
bus contains 28 “Greyhound Bus Style”
indvidual seats and has been painted St.
Andrews Blue and White.
The bus’ use will be available to
various departments, such as. Biology,
Student Life, and Athletics.
Athletic Director Mark Simons looks
forward to the use of the bus, “Safety
was the inain issue in obtaining a new
bus.” In the past, it was necessary to
travel in two separate vans, which meant
having two “aware” drivers. On long
trips driver fatigue is common, with
one bus it is much easier to consistently
“keep an aware driver at the whepl.”
The bus is equipped with overhead
storage in addition to having an under
carriage storage area. Occupiers of the
bus should arrive at their destination
more rested than in past trips when
bodies and luggage were cramped into

Two issues have really come to
the forefront judicially since the last
update. First, at the annual Meek
Mania a group of students organized
and executed a fireworks display.
After gathering all the information
available we confronted the suspected
students and they were very coopera
tive by taking the blame for the
incident. The students who took the
blame conprised of the Mecklenburg
Dorm Council. The punishment en

participate in two days of lake clean

a fund raiser and, subsequently, are in

the Judicial Committee regarded the
altering of Spring Term registration
cards. The involvement in the alter
ing ranged from athletes to student
body officials. We assessed the situ

ties judicially. On page 139 of the
Saltire it clearly states the role of the
Judicial Committee. Its role is “to
investigate alleged violations of col
lege policy,” and “to determine
whether a violation is an Honor Code
violation or a social/behavioral vio
lation.” We made a thorough investi
gation and came up with a decision.
We jointly agreed that the violation
was, in fact, an Honor Code violation
and should be charged as such.
The aftermath of these cases has
established an awareness of the seri
ousness regarding one’s obedience
towards the Honor Code. It’s much
better for the St. Andrews Commu*
nity when these flagrant violations
don t occur. We as the Judicial
Committee are not out to get anyone,
but when faced with violations we
will not hesitate to enforce our
