THE N.C.ESSAY AIMS FOR
The N.C. Essay .is the title selected by students for a school newspaper = Although
the School of the Arts is not a large school, a student publication can be essential in
correlating the activities of the four departments: music, dance, drama, and academics.
In addition to correlating these departments, the newspaper will endeavor to express
the student's opinions through letters to the editor. Students may also submit poetry and
creative' writing for publication. All material to be printer must be submitted on Tuesday
before printing on the following Friday.
Tenative plans are for the newspaper to be publisher weekly. A high journalistic
standard is the main objective of the N.C. Essay.
With support and interest it is hoped that the nespaper will become an integral part
of the school, serving both students and faculty. Anyone interested in working on the paper
should contact Ruth Rendleman or Tony Senter immediately.

Recently the school library added a
microfilm reader to ics present facilities.
Books, newsp-apers, magazines, manuscripts,
and mus.!,c are reproduced on microfilm and can
be viewed through the present machine, Pre
sently, the library has t;he New York Times
from 1964 to the present on microfilm. With
the New York Times Index, any article a p-
pearing in back issues is readily available for
reference. The advantage of microfilm is the
compactness of size: one reel of 35
millmeter film contains as much as 5 editions
of the New York Times, Mr. Van Hoven, school
librarian, added that a variety of films will
be purchased when funds are made available,
NEW BOOKS ON ART
In the past several months many books on
art have been added to the library primarily
for use with the art courses. This single
area has been strengthened more than any other
with several hundred books having been purchased.
DANCE AND DRAMA
Before Thanksgiving Mr. Van Hoven made a
purchasing trip to Hew York City where he ac-
puired books from both the Crama Book Shop
and the Dance Mart. These books are now
being processed and will soon be shelved.
Last week a shipment of 83 boxes and one
crate arrived from Otto Flaschner, a retired
New York music dealer- The school, bought out
his complete stock, which consists primarily
cf sheet musj.c, most of it being works from
the nineteenth century and earlier; however,
a few eany twentieth-century compositions
were included^ The music, for the most part,
is piano, string, and voice. Because of the
enormous amount of material, processing will
be very slow and gradual. The music was pur
chased with the new library in mind.
Also recently purchased was the private
collection of William Strickland, noted Amer
ican conductor, Mr. Strickland is leaving
the country and wanted his collection of
books to remain intact. The collection is
now being inventoried and processed.
ADDITIONS TO THE STAFF
Mrs. Valerie Parker joined the library
staff this year as a library assistant. Also
Miss Martha Teachey is now working with the
inventory of new materials.

a windy shell whispers

a universe shifts
