cape death. Trapped by the Gesta
po, he refused to reveal their hiding
places. He was tortured by the Nazis
but did not betray these people.
Despite his crushed fingers,
Riabikoff regained the use of his
hands through determination and
long agonizing practice. He went on
to play in many cities in Europe,
Salzburg and other World Music
Festivals. He also appeared in re
citals and with symphony orchestras
throughout the United States.
The Times-Herald of Washing
ton, D. C. said of Riabikoff, “(His)
most interesting playing is dis
tinguished by an impeccable com
mand of the instrument, grandly
conceived power, clarity and feeling,
and ability to transmit poetic con
ception. He was received with en
thusiasm.”
Seif-Limiting Hours
Granted to Seniors on
Experimental Basis
Most of you have probably heard
that the Seniors now have self-limit
ing hours. This privilege has been
given on a experimental basis to only
the Seniors living in North dormi
tory. The system for self-limiting
hours will be tested during this
spring semester. If the system proves
to be satisfactory, the system will be
studied for future use for seniors,
and possibly underclassmen. Every
one’s co-operation is needed to help
this system work. Information about
self-limiting hours and how it works
can be obtained in the Dean of Stu
dents office.
SGA office hours will be changed
this semester. The new hours will be
posted as soon as they are decided
upon.
Ed Christman
Hoofprint Club
Lists Activities
By Katie Humphries
For the October club meeting Dr.
Ben D. Harrington led a discussion
of the threatening V.E.E. epidemic
as well as lameness and other equine
diseases. Dr. Harrington was then
fired with questions from the floor
concerning every illness that any
horse could possibly have! Plans
were also discussed for Meredith’s
annual representation at the Wash
ington International Horse Show.
However, due to lack of trans
portation, the Hoofprint Club was
unable to usher at the show this year
and so several members attended the
Pretraining Hunter Trials in Dur
ham instead. Their observation of
the dressage section will probably
come in handy during Drill Team
practice sessions. Drill Team? Yes,
last month a sheet of paper appeared
on the bulletin board in the stables
asking all those interested to sign up.
Dressage riding involves complex
maneuvers by the rider with slight
movements of the hand, legs and
weight. Complete obedience is de
manded from the horse and hope
fully the drill team will be able to
find at least eight horses that will
work smoothly together.
Mr. George Wallace from Pine
Hall Stables in Raleigh spoke at the
December meeting about his experi
ences as a professional rider and
judge.

What a Great Day
To Be Alive!”
Is REW Theme
By Judy Yates and
Dianne Reavis
In an age of cold reason saturated
with flaring emotions, riot, and un
rest, one may not feel that it is so
great to be alive. But we of REW
(Religious Emphasis Week) have
chosen to celebrate the hopeful as
pects of life. We invite you to share
and contribute in this exciting ex
perience.
To lead us in rediscovering and
renewing the joy of being alive is
Mr. Edgar D. Christman, Chaplain
of Wake Forest University. He first
came to Wake Forest in 1954 as
director of the Baptist Student
Union, a year after he received the
Law School. This degree has since
LL.B. degree from Wake Forest
been converted to the J.D. degree.
Even though cold and wet
weather has prevented these Mere
dith horsewomen from doing much
riding, the Hoofprint Club is
still carrying on indoor activities,
Wednesday night, 7:00 in 103 Joy
ner. The dub program will feature
Mr. Tom Atkinson, an enthusiastic
horseman as well as an excellent
blacksmith.
He received the A.B. degree from
Wake Forest in 1950, the B.D. de
gree from Southeastern Seminary in
1960, and the S.T.M. degree from
Union Theological Seminary in
1961. He became chaplain of the
university in 1969.
Mr. Christman is a member of
Omicron Delta Kappa honor society
for men. Phi Delta Phi legal fra
ternity, and Lamba Chi Alpha social
fraternity.
President Marsha McCutchen re
turned from a strenuous summer of
race horse training to lead the Hoof
print Club in their fall activities. Be
fore the first Hoofprint Club meet
ing some horsewomen had already
participated in the Durham Rjding
Clinic. Early in September an
encouraging number of freshmen
turned out for the first meeting
where many decided to enter the
Meredith College Class of the North
Carolina State Championship Horse
Show. Twelve Meredith riders par
ticipated and Cathy Gambke placed
first aboard La Muncia.
He is also a member of the Wake
Forest Baptist Church, a deacon,
and a Sunday school teacher. He is
married and has two daughters.
Another exciting speaker will be
Reverend Jim Horton, assistant rec
tor of Christ Episcopal Church, New
Bern, N. C.
Religious Emphasis Week will be
gin on Sunday, January 31 with the
anticipation of the coming week.
Then, Monday will open with a
morning awakening at 7:30, which
will be repeated each day through
out the week. A speaker will be
welcomed in chapel, followed by an
opportunity for discussion in the
coffeehouse. From 1:00 to 3:00 on
Monday and Wednesday, you are
invited to get to know Mr. Christ
man and others in informal con
ferences. At 4:00 everyday the
coffeehouse will be open. On Mon
day night at 6:00, the supper club
will be held. Throughout the week
at 6:45, an opportunity for various
members of the Meredith faculty to
share with students their philoso
phies of life at a vespers service will
be available.
The week climaxes each night
with entertainment such as a new
folk musical, a movie, and a dia
logue through art. You are also in
vited to end each evening by par
ticipating in open dorm discussions.
Religious Emphasis Week is com
pleted yet continues throughout the
year with reflections and discoveries
made about living.
Judy Yates and Dianne Reavis,
co-chairmen of REW, share these
thoughts:
“We have chosen for our theme,
‘What a Great Day to Be Alive!’
hoping to bring a theme of self-
examination as well as a theme of
celebration. We feel that religion is
more than the effort to seek answers
to questions of ultimate concern
such as death, suffering, salvation. It
is also the expression of beauty, joy,
and celebration manifested in an
action of hope that makes one say,
‘What a great day to be alive!’
