tucky. She is a versatile person, having
served on the Board and the Council, and
having been a member of Life Service
Group, Kappa Phi Beta, College Chorus,
and Choir. June is majoring in social
studies and minoring in physical education.
She hopes in the future to be a school
teacher, and feels that one of the outstand
ing things Montreat has helped her in is
her personal spiritual growth. She seems
to like almost everything and everybody
connected with Montreat College. When
asked to comment on her term as pres-
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
“When you think, when you speak, when
you read, when you write.
When you sing, when you walk, when you
seek for delight—
To be kept from all evil at home and
Live always as under the ‘eye of the Lord.’
Whatever you say, in a whisper or clear.
Say nothing you would not like Jesus to
Whatever you read, though the page may
Read nothing of which you are not per
Consternation at once would be seen in
If God should say, solemnly, ‘Show Me
Whatever you write, in haste or with heed.
Write nothing you would not like Jesus
Whatever you sing, in the midst of your
Sing nothing that God’s listening ear could
Wherever you go, never go where you fear
God’s question being asked you, ‘What
doest thou here?’
Whatever the pastime in which you engage.
For the cheering of youth or the solace
Turn away from each pleasure you’d
shrink from pursuing.
Were God to look down and say, ‘What
are you doing?”

ident of Student Government Association,
June said, “This has been the most ex
citing, wonderful, encouraging, and awe
some year that I have ever known. This

wonderful support they have given S.G.A.
I have loved every minute of i;.”

of little talks over a cup of coffee at
meals, and loves just everything about
Montreat—even classes. When asked to
comment on her election as president of
Student Government Association she re
plied, “My heart is filled with thankful
