Ground BreakingFor Building
HERE’S THE ELON HOMECOMING QUEEN AND HER ROYAL COURT NcW DormS
Be Opened
Next Fall
Ground-breaking cere
monies for a huge living-
dining complex to accom
odate 200 women and 100
men students and to cost
approximately $1,250,000
were held on the Elon Col
lege campus last Friday
afternoon as the big fea
ture of a pep rally that
began Elen’s 1967 Home
coming weekend.
The ground-breaking
ceremonies, under the
leadership of Dr. J. E.
Danieley, Elon College
president got underway
with an al fresco dinner
on the site of the new
women’s dormitory, fol
lowed thirty minutes lat
er by the actual breaking
of ground on the site of
the new living-dining area
and the men’s dormitory.
A modern note to the
ground-breaking was the
fact that the first dirt
was turned by a bulldozer
rather than the tradition
al gilded shovel, but the
official ribbon cutting was
by Dale Morrison, pres
ident of the Elon College
Student Government As
sociation. Immediately
following the litany and
benediction, there was a
huge pep rally, prelimi
nary to the Homecoming
football game with West
ern Carolina.
The new living-dining
structure will be built
north of the Alumni Me
morial Gymnasium and
the athletic fields and will
be the first residential
structure to be built on
Elon’s new north campus
outside the brick walls
that surround the other
residence and admini
strative buildings.
