Our first Lyceum Program for
the school year 1966-67 was The
American Classical Theater’s pro
duction of THE TEMPEST by Wil
liam Shakespeare. The play was
directed by Dennis Hayes. The
leading roles of Prospero and Mi
randa were played by Bryan Hull
and Jan Rouse, respectively. All
members of the cast were profes
The scene of the play was an en
chanted island in the Mediterran
ean Sea. From the time Ariel
caused King Alonso’s ship to be
shipwrecked on this island, until
the time Alonso gave his blessings
to his son, Ferdinand, and Pros-
pero’s daughter, Miranda, the aud
ience was held captivated. The
mood of the audience ranged from
sympathy for King Alonso, because
of the loss of his son, to open-
hearted laughter at the hilarious
comments of the jester.
The costumes of the actors ran
ged from silk gowns for Miranda
to cotton rags for Caliban. There
were loud colors for the jester that
matched his mood. There were
dull colors for the drunkard, sym
bolizing his drunkenness. There
were soft pink colors for Miranda,
symbolizing her gentleness.
The play was very interesting,
and, as I have said before, held us
captivated from beginning to end.

The mid-term examinations were
given at Fayetteville State College
last week. They were tests of the
knowledge and skills that the stu
dent has acquired in the first
nine weeks of study.
The purpose of these examina
tions was to let the student Icnow
where he stood at the midway
point and to let the teacher know
whether or not he was using the
most efficient method of teaching.
The mid -term examinations are
helpful to the student. After tak
ing the tests and receiving the re
sults from them, the student can
get an idea as to what he did the
first nine weeks and what he will
have to do the remaining nine
weeks of the semester in order to
pass each of his courses. The mid
term examinations were also help
ful to the teacher. When he re
ceived the results of these tests,
the teacher knew whether his
methods of teaching were the most
efficient ones or whether he need
ed to change them in any way to
help the student advance.
The thought of taking mid-term
examinations was not a pleasant
one, but they were beneficial to
both the student and the teacher.
These are two of the three new buildings to be dedicated Sunday. The new Dunie Bryant Residence Hall for Women is
at the left. The new Zebulon B. Vance Residence Hall for Men is at the right.
