NEW FACULTY MEMBEM - - - WELCOME!
For you sophomores who think the new
lady working in the library is an assistant
of Miss Price, you are mistaken. She is
the librarian, and Miss Price is her as
sistant. This lady’s name is Miss Buc
hanan. She has worked as head librarian
at Montreat for several years. It seems
the reason we missed her last year was
bccaues of the fact she had taken a year’s
leave of absence to further her studies.
She is now back at Montreat to her true
home and we can not express how happy
we are to have her back.
For those of you who never visit the
business department, you may not have
yet met Mrs. Miller, the new shorthand,
typing, and business English teacher. She
has been a native of Black Mountain since
the year 1951. She has one son eleven
years old and his name is Burke. During
the years she has been living here she
has worked in several business concerns
in Asheville. Last year she taught school
at Owen High School. Now she is here
at Montreat, and we hope that she stays
a long time. She enjoys teaching here
and I might add, we enjoy having her.
Mr. Finley is our naw math teacher,
as you who are taking math have already
discovered. Mr. Finley was bom on an
Indian Reservation in Nebraska of mis
sionary parents. He graduated from Belle
vue (Now Hastings) College. Mr. Finley
has worked both in the business world and
taught school. In 1957 he retired, and he
and Mrs. Finley moved to Asheville, where
they have built a home. Since then he has
taught three years of math at Owen High
School. Now here at Montreat, he has
become very fond of the school. He likes
teaching students here, because they think
for themselves, or at least they are learn
ing to think for themselves.

On Sunday, September 11, the Montreat
gates were officially flung open to welcome
the incoming students for the term of
1960-61. The welcoming committees were
astonished at the cars with many and var
ied license plates that passed through the
gates bearing students that represented
fifteen states. North Carolina was found
to be the most prominent as she was repre
sented by fifty-one young adults. The
“Sunshine State” of Florida gave of her
best and sent eighteen southerners, wide-
eyed at the beauty of the mountains. Also
competing for top honors on the attendance
records were Virginia, South Carolina, and
Georgia with twelve, nine, and eight, re
spectively. Alabama contributed four
southern belles, while Tennessee, with two,
and Louisiana, with one, felt that they had
to keep such talent in the “ole home states.”
Happy with the possibility of converting
some Yankees to the ways of the south,
students from New York, New Jersey, Con-
neticut, and Maryland were welcomed with
a “Hi, Ya’ll!” The western states of In
diana and California were not to be out
done and contributed two truly potential
southern belles each. Honduras and Brazil
— Honduras and Brazil, South America!!!
Those are the facts readers. Montreat had
really gone south and is very fortunate
in having gained two young ladies from
As the committees left the gates, they
compared statistics and found that they
had welcomed one hundred seventeen
students (ninety-six girls and twenty-one
boys) to a year of mental and spiritual
growth at Montreat.
