SUPER S H E E P E N S T EIN
hy David Wood
Mary Shelly was a head! She
wrote Frankenstein, the world' s
greatest horror story. Perhaps it
is because we're getting closer to
October 31, but lately I've been
growing nervous around that Super
Sheep I created. I looked in on him
yesterday and discovered, to my sur
prise, that he had grown - yes, gen
tle readers, he was beginning to
take on enormous proportions! That
wasn't so very bad, but he turned
and looked at me with...I shudder to
think....HUNGRY EYES I He was, in
deed, becoming a Super Sheepenstein!
(As I find out, I was going to get
the Super Sheep Award last week for
failing to hand in the announcement
for the week - plus Marion Fitz-Si-
mons was going to give me the Super
Sheep Award for shaving my moustache
and joining the establishment! Is
There No Justice? The Super Sheep
is turning on me. But Wait! I know
something Baron Frankenstein didn't!
I figure that if I slam right and
left with ray "monster" he'll be so
busy taking care of the other victim
he'll forget me - for a while.
Go Super Sheepenstein! Eat!
Eat! Eat! Eat! Take that *'^+7o*&l=$
whoever scheduled the tours of She
Stoops to Conquer this coming spring.
Is that You, Sam Dorsett? Are you
r3ady...She Stoops To Conquer will
play at our theatre from November 19
thru December l...then in the Spring
we're going to take it on _^our.
Where? Why, to Salem Col lege,where
else! If you miss it then, don't
worry...we're also playing at Winston
Salem State Teachers College. By
that time the audience will be saying
the lines along with us? Ira Zucker-
man ought to get it again for saying
that we could load the trucks
the scenery and drive around in the
country for awhile before we pull up
at Salem College just to make us fee 1
we're on tour.
You're doing fine, Sheepenstein!
Eat more! Kill! Destroy!
Ready for desert, Sheepenstein?
Go get Harold Head! No, don't ask me
what for...really. I only know every
Tech student says he should get it.
As for me, I don't know. But when he
takes a screwdriver and runs around
the hall, pointing it at people,
going "zap! zap! zap!"...you start to
wonder. Well, Harold not even your
Buck Rogers Screwdriver can stay
SUPER SHEEPENSTEIN! "zap! zap! zap!"
Ah Ha! Robert Lindgren...we're
giving the Super Sheep Award to your
WRITING TABLET! Rumor has it that
when Mr. Lindgren lectures the dancer
he holds writing tablet and chews a
pencil..are you ready...someone look
ed at that tablet he kept checking
with his pencil and referring to with
he eyes...there was nothing on it.
What does that mean? Fantastic mem
ory or invisible ink!
N. C. Essay
And if you're still hungry now,
Sheepenstein, you can eat the Craw
ley Report on page five if you ever
find it! That should do it. I know
you fed. "Baa, Baa, Super Sheep,
is your stomach full? "Yes, sir.
Yes, Sir, But what A Buch of Bull".
Yes, Mr. Stambler, Siaper Sheep
Still marches on!!! (whew!)
ELECTION '68 (con't from page 2)
Caucasion laborer who feels that the
"liberal" Democrats are absolutely
corrupt and that the only way back
to the success of yesterday is
through the reactionary form of
"good-old free enterprise." ’His
followers constitued a large and
growing block of American voters.
While it seems unlikely, Wallace
still has a good chance of becoming
the next U. S. President. His plat
form is quite clear, that is,
1. to win militarily in S.E. Asia
2. to enforce strictly the U. S.
3. to employ capitalism as a means
Although great strides hdVe
been made in the "new sound", there
is among the large percentage of
musicians the feeling that any music
that is not performed on fetage by
human performers is heretical and
that such compositions, along with
the composet, should be burned at
the stake. This musical snobbery,
as well as the large amounts of
money that is required for such
equipment, are major barriers
against anv progress and general
acceptance of electronic sound.
This is partially the case here
at N.C.S.A. It is rather sad, for
if the school decided to, we could
help lead the way for others to fol
low in establishing funds and cours
es for experimentation in electronic
Why have we neglected this vit
al and important realm of music?
There are several answers. Probably
the most obvious reason would be
that we lack sufficient funds; of
course, this equipment is expensive.
The school already has in it's poss
ession several necessary pieces of
equipment, but because of restric
tions and lack of interest by those
in charge, they are kept from being
used by anyone other than a select
few, and are only used for such oc
casions as demonstrations and reci
tals. The equipment could be a
start for an entire lab, which if
pieces were added from time to time
as the budget allowed would be com
plete within a few years. The use
of this equipment would not be only
beneficial to the music department,
but to the Drama and Dance depart
ments as well. It would greatly en
hance the sound effects for any pro
duction. The sounds produced by the
students could also mean original
music for the Dance Department.
It is also thought that there
is "not enough interest" shown by
the students in such a program to
justify spending money and time.
If courses of in-
(The above EDITORIAL is con't from
struction and composition were geared
to the needs of the individual
student, there is little doubt in
our minds that there would be a
greater response by students who
show interest than is presently
We urge the administration and
the Department of Music to seriously
consider the preceding suggestions
and act positively towards estab
lishing a curriculum in Electronic
Music, for the common interest and
advancement of the school.

regrets over what cannot be remedied
are as unavailing as they are fool
ish, Who ever removed one difficulty
by pining over and hugging it to the
bosom? And yet, from the number of
fretters in this world, did we not
know to the contrary, we might infer
there was some remuneration or com
fort in it. In action and endurance
lies the secret of the true man's or
woman's power over all the ills and
troubles of life. The very afflic
tions and sorrows of life are trans
mitted by a true philosophy into
blessings and sources of joy.
There can be no cheer, no sun
shine, where there are unreasonable
anxiety and care. The light, joyous
heart never frets. For if there is
too much to enjoy and be thankful
for in God's beautiful universe to
allow of this. Who, reader, of your
friends are the contented and happy?
Anxious care is the enemy of all
enjoyment. When the book of books
says, "Be careful for nothing," it
says the equivalent of the two words
"DON'T FRET!" There is no real good
in life but that fretting mars and
destroys. The fretter's lot, how
ever, favorable in respect of exter
nal possessions, is a sad and unen
viable one® In our hearts we pity
him. Bright, cheerful spirits, with
the little of this world's treasures
are infinitely preferred to any sup-
posable condition in life with a
fretful, murmuring disposition.
Then reader, DON'T FRET! When
things go wrong, as they sometimes
will, work and wait in cheerful
patience till they go better. Hap
piness is your life's chief design;
resolve, therefore, that nothing
shall thwart that design. Study and
practice the philosophy which con
verts the trials into blessings,
adversities into joys. Whatever
turns up in your individual history
in the outside world, recollect that
you have no right to be unhappy, and
determine, with the blessing of Pro
vidence, you will not be.
