Rumor has it that the • new
building will probably be present
able enough to have its picture
taken by Thanksgiving - the most
certainly by Christmas!
Something to look forward to:
Mrs. Crosby Adam’s annual con
cert for Montreat students. No
vember 12, will be the big day.
Dr. Reeves looks as pert and
peppy as ever after her illness
and short stay in the hospital.
Too bad she missed that Mt.
Mitchell hike. Each year before
(when everyone walked halfway
arid rode halfway), she was al
ways the first one on top!
Wonder what Mr. Miller’s ed
ucation classes used for excuses
for not having their homework
prepared this past Thursday
morn? Last week it was easy
enough to say they’d been up all
night during The Big Search.
Assisting as hostess with Mrs.
McGregor at the table Wednesday
night was Miss DuBose, our
former Dean of Women, who has
just stopped by after a summer’s
stay in the hills of Colorado.
Ccrta'nly grand to see her!
Flash bulbs and excused classes
mean only one thing: group pic
tures! All this posing will be over
before long, and then REAL plans
can be made on the annual.
CAMPUS REFLECTIONS . • •
Have you ever seen the leaves any lovelier? Of course you
men haven’t — Fall only happens like this in Montreat! It
you feel like writing poetry, playing soccer - or anything but S u
ing. It’s almost like Spring! We’re not the only ones who know a
Montreat in the fall. There are some guests in the Inn who came
the way from Louisiana “to see the leaves.” -
You know - fall is a lovely time for weddings, and two o
graduates have realized that very fact. In two weeks. Goodie an
will both be married -and won’t they make lovely brides! bool.
