VISTA and Peace Corps vol unteers represent a new breed of people, young people who are responsible in their actions and concerned with the problems which confront our great Nation and the world. To demonstrate their newly acquired responsi bilities and concerns, they are seeking meaningful human in volvements in challenging sit uations. These young people are wil ling to give a lot and expect little. They believe that this is the way it should be in any "giving situation.” Some have called these people idealists, dreamers and fools with impossible goals. If they believe in the idea that everyone should have the oppor tunity to earn a decent living and live a contributing, worth while life to society, does this make them idealists? Then they are. When working for a peaceful world in which people are ac cepted for their worth and dig nity as human beings and when respecting the rights and opin- This fall at Elizabeth C;ity State College freshmen from ev ery section of the state as well as out of state students flooded the campus. Their reactions to the new environments are varied. Some of them are very excited and joyful, but then again, some are terribly confused and unhappy. This is to be expected on every college campus and E. C. S. C. is no exception. Many students were disap pointed because of the uncon cerned attitude of the staff. Then again, many students found some of the teachers very interesting because of their stimulating personalities. The out of state students, ran ging from South Carolina to Washington State, were very shocked at some of the campus rules and regulations. The early curfew hour which was regarded as ridiculous by all of the girls of Bias Hall was one. The students who came to E.C.S.C. looking for a social life were very disappointed in that they found the campus to have more of a quiet ,serene and studious atmosphere. The new students regarded ions of others constitute a dream, then they are dreamers. Fools with impossible goals ....well, they work for what might seem to be impossible goals, but they believe that these goals can be accomplish ed. These young people work untiringly to accomplish them. Working in VISTA and Peacq^ Corps gives them the opportun ity to give of themselves that part of them which will do the most for the disadvantaged, the deprived and the neglected. Thus, their lives become more meaningful and more directed. Organizations such as the ones being considered are giv ing young people the opportun ity to accept the challenges of the future which demand that we invest our resources today. This is essential to the con tinued growth of America and the world. The "new breed” has ac cepted these challenges of the future by offering its services to the disadvantaged through Vista and the Peace Corps. I am a member of the "new breed”, are you? Shelley Willingham Barbara Curtis ’70 the upper classmen as being very friendly. They were very impressed by the leadership ability possessed by these up per classmen, but were puzzled as to why they did not use them (more effectively. There was and still is a great grumble about the cart- tetia. The lunch lines are tn> long and too time consuming, and the food just doesn’t taste like "mommy” used to make it. The Beanies, once thought of as being clever, are now re garded as being a disadvantage to all concerned. They are not in harmony with the school wear, and they distract from the lovely hair styles. But, in spite of the criticisms the freshman class is willing to make the best of their stay here at ESCS, both academically and socially. the RIGHT WORD HURTS.--- One suggestion for gradua tion from the School of Ex perience is a diploma with hut one word: OUCH! THE COMPASS JUNIOR COUNSELORS IN BIAS HALL Charlotte Deloatch ’70 Upon arrival at State College we were greeted by friendly smiles. They were smiles from the dormitory directors Mrs. Reed and Mrs. McCullough, and of course, the Junior Counsel ors. The Junior Counselors are Patricia Jones, Carolyn Demery, Linda Davis, Celestine Ashe, Shirley Fleetwood, Evelyn Ellis, Josephine Grant, Carolyn Mc Cloud, Frances Deloatch and Ingrid East. These Counselors have done an excellent job in aiding stu dents to become worthy Eliza beth State College Women. They are always there when we need assistance in studying, social problems or when we just want to have a few laughs. Recently, with the assis tance of Mrs. Rae Williams, Mrs. Reed and Mrs. McCullough, the Junior Counselors and WGA sponsored a Charm Clinic. We are sincerely hoping that this year will be one of the greatest with cooperation, fun, and excitement for the students and Junior Counselors who are living in Bias Hall. "To Mom and Dad'' Brenda Pearson You’re proud of me aren’t you? To you I’m wonderful be cause I’m going to college. But, it goes both ways. I’m proud of you and I think you’re wonderful. Do you know why? Because, I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you. You buy my books, pay my tuition, buy my clothes, and give me money to spend for frivolous things. You gave me confidence and encouraged me to succeed in life. You ihspired me with hopes and dreams and you gave me the right to be proud of myself. So, Mom and Dad, don’t think too much of me. I’m a part of you, and if I’m wonder ful, it’s only because you made me that way. Be proud of your selves and I’ll do my best to make you proud of me. Registration is Better by Carolyn Butts Registration at ECSC this semester was a **whiz.” Ev erything was very smoothly planned an.l carried out. In the past, registration has been a "drag”, if the term may be used. Everything has been "nerve-racking.” It always seemed to be such a long pro cess and the hours of standing in lines was just too much. But registration really rolled on September 16- It seems that we have been having a *'zillion” steps to go through, but this semester we had only five; (1) depositing admission cards at Office of Student Personnel and receiv ing permit to register, (2) going to the Health Center for physic al examinations, (3) going to the Department Chairmen to set up schedules and have them approved, (4) going to the gymn to receive and deposit IBM class cards and (5) taking a trip to the Business Office to unload all of the cash which had been tucked away for the payment of fees. Upperclassmen know that registration was more easily done this semester, but fresh men and new students cannot elaborate on this issue too much; they have not had the experience of registering in confusion at ECSC. The fall semester certainly showed remarkable improvement in registration.^ Today, in all parts of our glorious country, we are privi leged to have missionaries and social workers who are looked upon by many as possessing a gift for guidance. Humbly and meekly, they go about their work, leading and assisting all those in need. Although they may not always receive material rewards or abundant praises, they are self-satisfied to know that they have done what they felt was their duty to mankind. W'e have such a person liv ing here in our city who has in her own way opened the door of opportunity to many underprivi leged people and families. We join in with the people of our community in giving this indi vidual her due in the line of praise for her great accom plishments. This woman who has taken her place in the ranks of dis tinguished women is Mrs. E. Mocile Spellman of 608 Her rington Road. She is the wife of the late Mr. Roland C. Spellman and the daughter of the late Dr. and Mrs. George W. Cardwell. The College Health Center, Cardwell-Hoffler Infirmary, includes the name of her father. She received most of her early education here in Elizabeth City and later went on to Shaw University, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree and to Teachers College (Col umbia University) where she received the Master of Arts degree. She is well known for her unfailing devotion to trying to meet the economic and social needs of her community through her church, clubs and organi zations. Mrs. Spellman holds a life time membership in the Woman’s Home and Foreign Missionary Society of her church, Mt. Leb anon A. M. E. Zion Church, and in the National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs. On July 19, 1966, ^Irs. Spellman, who was retiring president of the N. C. Federated Woman’s Clubs, was presented a plaque for her outstanding service to that group. Mrs. Spellman is very prom inent socially, for she has held and still holds many other re sponsible positions; overall chairman of the Negro Division of the United Fund Drive; weekly columnist for the Norfolk Journal and Guide; supervisor by Lillian Riggs Mrs. E. M. Spellman of Brownie Girl Scout Troop No. 7; assistant superinten dent of her church Sunday Sclit>*>l; |ircsi'l'*'>r ol the Martu.i Woodhouse Missionary Society of her church; notary public; member of former Governor Sanford’s Committee on Juve nile Delinquency and Youth Crime; and a member of our State Advisory Committee for the Board of J uvenile Correction. Many readers of this article may ask how she finds time to serve the community in so many ways. A woman of her character and stamina always has time to devote to those in need and she devotes that time very willingly. Her main objective in life has always bet^n to help others and she has done this almost solely through projects which have included obtaining cloth ing, food, furniture and money for the unfortunate and bringing children and adults to know the church and its functions. In receiving much praise for herdiligent work, Mrs Spelltn^"' never fails to realize that al though she has been successful in helping others, she too is helpej by the many cheetful givers Vho have contributed greatly to her request for des perately needed food and cloth- This woman who has had > many honors bestowed upon her, J has also given her contribution 1 to our communi ty in the field of education, for she has taught , many students right here in the classrooms of our dear Alt'® j Mater.
