Corn Huskin' costumes are admired by Carrie Frampton, MRA vice-present and
chairman of the event.
Corn Huskin’, the annual cam
pus Halloween celebration, began to
night with a variation from the tra
ditional supper in the form of a
picnic buffet. Afterwards, events
quickly picked up as the judges, Dr.
Bernard Cochran, Miss B. J. Yeager,
and Mr. Joe Baker, watched the
student body and the faculty carry
off their yearly antics.
The freshmen were first with a
theme based on the Wizard of Oz.

Labor Representative Will Speak
Parliament Member to Visit Meredith
To the average student at Mere
dith College, Great Britain likely
suggests Julie Christie, the Anglo
-Saxon invasion, and Winston
Churchill. How much does she
really know about the culture which
has given us an outstanding heritage
and the country that is our greatest
ally today?
The International Relations Club
'■ invites the Meredith community and
the public to hear Mr. Ivor Richard,
Member of Parliament, Monday,
October 30, at 7:00 p.m. in the blue
parlor. His topic will be “Britain,
Europe, and the United States.”
Mr. Richard will explain the new
role that Britain has to play becausc
of the Common Market and will
entertain questions afterward. Tucs-
. day morning he will speak in chapel
on “Changing Britain,” dealing pri
marily with social aspects.
The son of a mining and electrical
• engineer in the Welsh coal-mining
industry, Mr. Richard was born in
. Wales. He received his B.A. in
Jurisprudence from Pembroke Col
lege, Oxford, in 1953. He is a Bar-
rister-at-Law practicing in London.
He has been a Labor member of
Parliament since 1964 and was re
cently appointed Parliamentary Pri
vate Secretary to the Secretary of
State for Defense.
A member of the British-Ameri-
can and Franco-British Parliamen
tary groups, Mr. Richard has a keen
interest in Atlantic and European
affairs. In 1966 he was appointed
as a delegate to both the Consulta
tive Assembly of the Council of
Europe and the Assembly of the
Western European Union. His first
visit to the United States was on a
lecture tour in 1965, which was
followed by a stay in 1966 on a
United States Department of State
Foreign-Leader Grant.
In his spare time, Mr. Richard
enjoys playing the piano and read
ing American history. He is mar
ried and has two children.

Keeping in mind a desired goal
for Meredith ten years hence, a
steering committee was appointed
last year by President E. Bruce
Heilman. Chairman of the steering
committee is Dr. Roger Crook; the
co-ordinator is Dr. Gloria H. Blan
In September the steering com
mittees set up nine working com
mittees to study various areas of
college life and submit recom
mendations for their improvement.
These committees are made up of
students and members of the ad
ministration and faculty. In March,
reports from these committees will
be submitted to the steering com

During the summer, Meredith
announced the inter-instutional co
operation program between Mere
dith College and North Carolina
State University. Later this program
was enlarged to include all colleges
in Raleigh. Previously, students from
other schools have taken courses at
Meredith, and Meredith students
have taken courses elsewhere, but
this new program enables an ex
change of classes without charge.
Because State students must have
their schedules computerized, it is
not possible for them to enter
this program until the fall semester
of 1968. However, some Meredith
students have already taken ad
vantage of this opportunity. These
students are taking courses ranging
from European political systems to
graduate-level statistics. —'
Meredith has widened Its curricu
lum through this exchange plan. Dr.
John Yarbrough, chairman of die
program, is working now toward
sharing libraries and research facili

Jane Waller, Ginny Sutton Considered for Fellowship
Danforth Nominees Chosen
. Class of 1968 Recognizes
Twelve'Exceptional Seniors'
A new feature will be included in the 1968 Oak Leaves. Entitled “Ex-
(Ceptional Seniors,” this section wiE replace the traditional senior superla

Elected by their fellow seniors, the students were chosen with the idea
they will be remembered by their classmates in the future. The yearbook
will pinpoint the unique quality of each of the twelve seniors and the
reason for their election.
The “Exceptional Seniors” include Lynn Dodge, Betty Duckworth,
Hope Glover, Carolyn Halyburton, Judy Kornegay, Mary Katherine Mof-
fitt, Joy O’Berry, Arden Ferry, Teenie Sink, Brenda'Smith, Martha Ellen
Walker, and Libba Watkins.
Jane Waller, a history major, and
Ginny Sutton, a religion major, have
been nominated for Danforth Fel
lowships for graduate study. Each
year the various departments at
Meredith submit names of eligible
students; from these eight or nine
suggestions, two girls are selected
as nominees from the college.
Although Jane and Ginny will not
find out whether they received the
fellowships until next spring, the
nomination alone is quite an honor,
for the standards include, “Evidence
of intellectual power which is flexi
ble and of wide range; . .. Evidence
of concerns which range beyond
self-interest and narrow perspective
and which take seriously the ques
tions with which religious expres
sions attempt to deal.”
The aim of the Danforth Founda
tion is to further the cause of
secondary and higher education and
“to emphasize the human values of
the Hcbrew-Christian tradition” by
giving financial aid to students who
plan to do graduate work and to
teach on the college level.
Jane has made a tentative choice
of schools, Duke University or the
University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill, and will study Ameri
can, particularly colonial, history.
Besides taking courses in political
science Jane has a related field in
Ginny hopes to attend a univer
sity such as Yale, Columbia, or
Vanderbilt, instead of a seminary.
She plans to teach rather than to go
into professional counseling. Ginny
enjoys a wide range of activities—
horseback riding, studying voice,
and keeping up with political de
velopments. Along with her religion
major, she has a related field in
Jano Waller and Ginuy Suttoa are DanforHi nominees.
