CONSTRUCTION PLANS OWPLETED
FOR NEW STUDENT CENTER
SAVE THOSE SHRIMP!!!
(The following conversation between
a student and a cafeteria worker was
overheard in a lunch line one day at
the very end of serving hours.)
Student: Oh come on, can't you give
me shrimp too? Look, if I
don't eat it, you'll just
have to throw it away.
Worker: Throw away? Shoot, we
don't throw nothin' away.
I worked for the same com
pany out at General Elec
tric and they don't throw
Student; Are you sure?
Worker; Yeah! You can take the
shrimp and use it again in
something else, like sal
mon croquettes. We had
salmon croquettes the
other day. You just put
it in with the salmon, it
taste just as good, it
saves salmon, and they
don't know the difference.
Shoot, we don't ever throw
Just think, thanks to the bril
liantly economic minds in our cafe
teria, the next time you eat Lasagna
you may in actuality be eating rem
nants from five different meals
dating back as far as three weeks.
Plans for the new Student Com
mons Building have been completed by
the Architect and actual construc
tion should begin in the very near
future according to William C. Her
ring, Administrative Director. "The
architects believe that this build
ing will be the most handsome in its
style in Winston-Salem," added Mr.
Herring. Because the plans must
meet state specifications, they are
now in Raleigh being reviewed. This
fully alr-condltloned, 33,000 sq.ft.
building, is estimated to cost
slightly more than one-million dol
The building is to be located
between the new dorms and the pre
sent Main Building.
The structure will have the
height of a three story building but
due to the high ceilings for the
gymnasium and Indoor swimming pool,
there will be only two functioning
levels. The first floor will house
locker rooms, showers, dressing
TO APREAR AT DUKE
Fifty tickets have been reserv
ed at Duke for NCSA students to see
Simon and Garfunkel. They will be
at Duke, Saturday, October 12. The
tickets are $2.50 per person and
anyone Interested may sign up In the
Girls' Dormitory. The bus will
leave at 5:30 p.m.
Mr. Hyatt will take any inter
ested students to the mountains Sat
urday, October 5. The bus will
leave at 8 a.m. and go to Grand
father Mountain and Beach Mountain
Ski Slopes near Boone, N.C. The fee
rooms, weight rooms, tumbling rooms,
and exercise rooms in addition to
the pool and gym. The building is
designed so that any of these rooms
may be used while others are closed
A Grand Staircase, 27 ft. in
width will extend from the lower end
(north) of the building to the level
of the first floor of our present
Main Building. A big "Galleria"
will be located on a landing half
way up the Grand Staircase, and will
serve as an Art Gallery. At this
same level will also be a lounge a-
rea with vending machines. A bal
cony from the top floor will over
look the spacious Galleria. Also on
the top level will be a reading room,
three conference rooms, several of
fices for student affairs, organiza
tions and student government as well
as a new dining hall.
A feature of the new dining
hall is the "scattered system" which
means instead of everyone going
through one line for a meal, one
would go to a specific area for hot
meals, another for cold foods, en
trees, salads, etc. and another for
drinks. The dining hall will seat
approximately 300 people. In addi
tion, two small private dining rooms
will be available by reservation.
The cafeteria will have the most ef
ficient and modern equipment availa
ble which should allow for a much
larger variety of foods and will
have more adequate facilities and
space for preparation of foods.
It Is hoped that this building
will be ready for use either by Sep
tember or during the next school
will be one dollar.
