OUR PLANET EARTH *
A photograph of the Earth *
taken from near the moon shows *
the Earth as a sphere. Accurate *
measurements, however, reveal that*
there is polar flattening and an *
equatorial bulge due to the *
Earth's rotation on its axis. *
Earth is an oblate spheroid (a *
slightly flattened sphere) and is *
also slightly pear shaped. *
MESSAGE FRCM THE DEAN OF STUDENTS
by Dean vJaller
The Dean of Students' office is invariably striving to
improve the services offered to vJayne Community College
New activities are being sponsored and we encourage you
to take advantage of them. If these activities are suc
cessful, we will continue having them. So participate!
Every student should take an active interest in the activ
ities—not merely a vocal interest.
Students, Wayne Community College is your college; what
you make of it depends upon you.
There is no limit to the accomplishments that can be
made by you and WCC. The establishment of a student news
paper is a perfect example of the accomplishments being
made already. Support the Wayne Communique'' by serving on
its staff or contributing worthwhile material.
Likewise, we invite you to come by the Dean of Students
office and offer any suggestions you feel may benefit the
students and the college. If you have any criticizims
concerning the college, please don't hesitate to let us
We have made a fine start this school year, and with
your help, we will continue in this manner.
As editor of the Wayne Communique”, it is my pleasure to
explain what our newspaper will stand for, to whom our news
will be directed, and how the Wayne Communique will be of
service to Wayne Community College.
Communique'^Code. There is a free spirited theory behind
the Wayne Communique. Our staff firmly believes in our con
stitutional rights to freedom of speech and the freedom of
the press. But we also hold true the right to reject mater
ial which we feel might stain the Communique's character.
No material will be printed without the examination and
approval of the editor, the Dean of Students, and/or our
advisors, Mrs. Mildred Councill and Mrs. Eleanor Powell.
Our Readers. This newspaper is for everyone in this
college; students, teachers, faculty and staff. Any member
of the student body, any teacher, any member of the faculty
or staff—anyone is free to contribute quality news stories,
features, editorials and advertisements.
The Communique' staff does not wish to be identified as a
separate entity within this college, or as a special group
of students who race around the campus gathering news. In
stead, we wish everyone to feel they are part of a "commun
ity project" where everyone contributes something. In fact,
we will be expecting regular contributions from the English
Department. Any high quality theme, essay, or report will
be more than welcomed.
Service. There is vertually no limit to the service the
Wayne Communique'' can render. For example:
a) If a student or teacher has books for sale, a car for
sale, anything for sale, he or she advertises the facts in
the Wayne Communique'T
b) If a student needs a room to rent, needs to share the
cost of a room with a roomate, or needs a regular ride to
and from school, he or she advertises in the Communique.
c) If the SGA, the Forestry Club, or any such organiza
tion wishes to announce a meeting, sponsor a dance, etc.,
they will advertise in the
Furthermore, any important
news flash will be immediately
relayed to the student body via
a Wayne Communique'" special bul
letin. Soon we will have perman
ent distribution centers in the
building where every student will
be able to get a copy of the paper.
For the time being, though, all
matter pertaining to the Communique
is to be submitted to the Dean of
In short, the Wayne Communique
will be the most versatile method
of communication this college has
In time, our newspaper will look
like a real newspaper. We will
have real advertisements and our
own newsroom somewhere on campus.
We might even become the most
popular college newspaper in the
Nevertheless, the days of writing
on the walls at Wayne Community
College are gone forever. Now we
* have a newspaper!
