Meet the Gang Next Year at Our Own Pub “Long-needed for after-study re laxation” was student response to the official announcement of plans to open a Pub on the Meredith Campus. The Pub, promoted by the Student Activities Board, will be the new campus entertainment cen ter. Still in the blue-print stage, the Pub will tentatively be located on the east campus next to the senior dorm. Coordinator of the project, Ifeel High, stated that the purpose of the proposed $50,000 structure will Since all other buildings on campus are named after college presidents or benefactors, this will honor stu dents. Other community activities will include open houses in the dormi tories for the professors to see the students “at home,” picnics in the court, boating races on the lake and free outdoor movies in the court. To add to the scholastic life of the week, certain classes will be meeting. With the loss of Saturday classes, some of the Tuesday- Thursday professors have com plained of the excessive length of time from one class meeting to the next. To compensate for this, all TTh classes will meet every day of the spring in-school holiday. Whether the professors intend to teach or to socialize while pro moting unity in their classes has been left to the discretion of the individual teacher. Other announcements concerning the week will be given in a printed program which will also acknowl edge that all this is for a belated April Fool’s Day chuckle. Dr. Bruce Heilman Decides "US. Education Looks Best rr BySHERAJACKSON “The lights of this press confer ence feel good after being in Si beria,” grinned Dr. Bruce Heilman as he began talking about his Com parative Education Tour. One of the Raleigh newspaper men quipped, “Maybe you should scotch the rumor that the Trustees had anything to do with sending you to Siberia” and Dr. Heilman joked “Well, you want me to tell it like it is, don’t you?” Getting serious. Dr. Heilman de scribed education in Russia. When asked about student unrest in Mos cow, Dr. Heilman commented, “When I asked the vice-rector of the University of Moscow, he evaded the question by answering, ‘Yes, we occasionally have student unrest. We may have a student in toxicated one night, but he is not a student the next day.’ ” Dr. Heil man laughed and observed, “This, of course, was not the right student unrest.” Summing up his general impres sion from the trip, Dr. Heilman said, “Our three weeks were a reaffirma tion of what I already believed — our education is best for the edu cation of masses. We have the long-range future for the best educa tion in the best way.” A sidelight of special interest to the Twig was Dr. Heilman’s com ment ’’I took a copy of the school newspaper to one of our graduates, Louise Stokes Kinken. She’s living in Berlin now and was delighted to see an issue of the Twig.” Mezzo - Soprano to Sing Here Guest performer in chapel, April 11 at 10:00 a.m., will be mezzo- soprano Jeanne GreaHsh.
