Elon Opens Two New Dorms
The latest addition to the tlon College campus is the new living-dining area on the college s North
Campus, which includes the Staley Hall that houses 200 women students, the new Moffitt Hall that houses
100 men students and the new Harper Center which furnishes the dining and recreational areas for the
two new dormitories. The new living-dining complex, which was slated for completion by September 1st
at the cost of $1,250,000, was not ready for occupancy on the scheduled date, and this fact made necessary
a one-week delay in the opening of Elon College for its 1968-69 term.

Charles Lynum, an E-
lon graduate and a former
member of the Elon Col
lege music department,
came back to his old home
campus on Tuesday night
of this week as the first
guest artist on the 1968-
69 series of college Ly
ceum programs.
When he stepped on the
stage in Whitley Auditor
ium, it was f am-liar sur
roundings for the very
fine baritone soloist, who
proved once more to be
a favorite with an Elon
audience, just as he was
always a favorite when
he sang with the Elon
Choir as a student andlat-
er when he returned to
sing as a guest.
Lynum, a native of
Wake Forest, graduated
from Elon with the Class
of 1952, did graduate work
at the New York Univer
sity and later studied in
Europe while serving with
the United States Army
in Germany. In Germany
he was a voice student
of Erika Buchman in Hei
delberg for nine months.
He later returned to
Elon and was a member
of the Elon faculty from
1958 until 1963. at the
same time doing post
graduate work at Indiana
University during the
summer months. He has
since taught at both high
Point College and the Un
iversity of North Carolina
at Greensboro.
While teaching at Elon
he was director of the
Elon Choir and each year
sang one of the guest solo
roles in the Yule sea
son presentation of “The
Messiah.” Since leaving
Elon he has several times
been a guest for the
“Messiah presentation
in Whitley.
