Dr. Kenneth R. Williams, pres

College, stated to the journalism
class that the role of a college
student was not just to get a
college degree but to become a
The president said, “There is
a difference between a college
graduate and a scholar.” “Not all
students or graduates are schol
ars.” “A scholar is one who has
mastered the broad concepts to
broad living.”
He also stated that a scholar
is one who reads good books,
and keeps up with current
events. “A scholar should con
tribute to the field of learning;
he should master a field so well
that he can contribute,” he said.
“A scholar is concerned about
his college and plays an impor
tant role in his community. He
is one that is aware of his re

little about a lot of things and
nothing about everything,” stat

Negro teachers. He said also that
Winston-Salem State College has
had much success with its grad
uates and there isn’t a state
where its graduates aren’t able
to get jobs.” “Our graduates are
short on Ph.D degrees,” stated
the president.
When asked about quality ed
ucation, Williams said that all
education is quality education.
He said that this type of educa
tion was based on fundamentals
that equip the individual for a
useful life, a productive life and
develops in him or her an aware
ness that goes to make good
manhood or womanhood.
The curriculum at Winston-
Salem Sate College is good
enough for one to get a good
teacher education because for
the last two years the staff has
worked on the college curricu
‘Guidance is a very pervasive
thing, and everybody who works
with students can contribute to
a successful program of student
guidance and welfare because
everybody has a unique contri
bution to make,” Mrs. Christine
K. Hedgley, Director of Guid
ance and Student Welfare of
Winston-Salem State College,
stated in a recent interview.
Mrs. Hedgley’s talk centered
around her job here, in relation
to the guidance of the students.
She stated that her job consists
of co-ordinating work of two
deans and working with stu
dents individually and in groups,
wherever the needs indicate. “I
also work with faculty groups,
but my main duty is that of
working with the students,” Mrs.
Hedgley stated.
She tries to help the students
get adjusted to college life here
at State College, help them to
know what they are best fitted
for and tries to help them with
little problems which might de
Mrs. Hedgley stated that most
of the students who come to her
do not come to her with per
sonal problems, or problems in
relation to their studies. “Most
of them are not problems, just
miscellaneous things. They come
when they have good news to
share or just desire to talk to
someone,” Mrs. Hedgley ex
claimed. She stated that there
is no problem in getting the stu
dents to avail themselves to her
services. “They come readily.”
Some come because they are re
ferred by others and some refer
themselve s,” Mrs. Hedgley
Mrs. Hedgley said that every
body has a unique contribution
that he can make to the guid
ance of the students here. The
janitor, teachers, and everybody
who works with the students
can help to make this program
a more successful one.

Lorena M. Grier I
“The library at Winston-Salem
State College is greatly over
crowded; seating only 25% of the
student body,” Mrs. Lucy H.
Bradshaw, the librarian stated in
an interview. The librarian feels
that the demands placed on the
library enrollment create a
need for additional staff mem
The library resources are
growing so rapidly that an addi
tional stack area was recently
acquired because of the lack of
available shelve space, however,
it gives only temporary relief
stated, Mrs. Bradshaw.
The librarian feels that the
library has a well-rounded col
lection of books and periodicals
being over 50,000. These books
and periodicals, she stated, serve
the needs of the students and
the faculty. Mrs. Bradshaw also
stated that “with the change in
the curriculum, there will have
to be an increase in the number
of books in subject areas, and
more current books and periodi
cals will have to be ordered.”
The library Statistical Infor
mation is as follows;
Total number of books
(bound) in the library as of
June 30, 1963, 52,060; total num
ber of books added 1962-63, 3,101;
magazines taken regularly, 275,
and number of newspapers
taken regularly: daily newspa
pers, 7, and weekly newspapers,
Mrs. Bradshaw stated that

needs a new library for many

In order to make his program
successful he is asking all male
students of State College to:

problem. The children’s room
and the curriculum material
center need a larger area. The I
reserve room and the reference i
room need to be larger, and the
library needs a room to display
various materials.
The college has been granted
$295,000 for a new library. Mrs.
Bradshaw stated that according
to the plans for expansion, the
library will be located across the
street from the Administration
Building. The library will have
all new furniture that will meet
up to the library standards. The
librarian stated that if the new
library has an open stack, it
would have to depend upon the
help of the students to keep it
that way.
Future plans for the new' li
brary will go into effect within
the next 24 or 30 months.
