THE DIALETTE Volume 4, Number 1 THE DIALETTE, NOVEMBER, 1966 PAGE 1 STUDENT COMMITTEE HOLDS INVESTIGATION OF CAFETERIA POLICIES w TAMS" TO ENTERTAIN A student committee, composed of Sophomores Don Young, Leesa Hidelburg, Pamelia Thomas and Steve Moody was organized recently to find out why students had not been able to get seconds on food, and to help prove som'e of the differences bet ween the students and the cafeteria. Two meetings have so far been held with the Slater officials and Dr. Dougald Monroe of the college admin istration. Following the first meeting. Dr. Monroe and the Slater’s officials issued a joint statement which said, “Seconds will be served on all non premium meals. No seconds on des erts will be allowed. During the last ten minutes of a meal period, stu dents will be allowed to have sc- onds on any itm the cafeteria has to spare.” Don Young, a member of the committee said, we take gripes stu dents have about the food or the ser vice about the cafeteria and present them to the Slater management, with hopes that some form of positive act. ion will be taken.” A second meeting was held on October 3 to assess the policy state ment previously issued by Slaters and the administratiyn. Students were still in doubt as to how the policy was to operate, and could not get meaningful answer from the Slater employees. As a result of this meet ing, Slater officials have pledged their corporation with students, and are looking for ways in which to improve the food service. Recently the cafeteria gave Food Preference Questionaries to students to try and find what foods students most enjoyed. After these questionaries have been examined, the cafeteria can choose foods mo.st liked by students. The committee will continue to take students ideas and opinions and present them to the cafeteria officials, with the aim of improved service for all.

How did nine of our Mon- treat-Anderson pathfinders lose their way? The day of October 22 was warm and pleasant. The large group of hikers expected to take a short hike for exercise and relaxation. For nine unlucky students the hike lasted longer than they had planned. This group must have taken a wrong turn on Greybeard Mountain. They circled the mountain several times before they realized it. Rather than panic, the group of five boys and four girls decided to build a fire, sit down and talk the situation over. ' The only food they had with them was a pack of chewing gum which lasted until 8 p.m. After that was gone they had to' resort to nature. The hikers made the most of their plight. Terry Grice, afraid of rain, tore chunks of green moss off the trees to be used as rain hats if the need should arise. The lost students said Dave Graham should have received a medal for sportsmanship. He found an old bent nail, and a grasshopper. He put the grasshopper on the nail and went fishing to try and relieve the hunger of the group. Unfortunately the fish weren’t interested in grass hoppers. During the night, Jan Nel son had to have some water to drink. The woods are pitch black at night, so the group sent along a protector and guide. When the guide reached the creek’s edge, he called to Jan, “See where I’m stand ing?” She answered, “Yes.” The guide then said, “Well, don’t stand here, because I’m standing in the creek.” And so the group' huddled around the fire during the night, trying to keep warm. Unfortunately, some members got too close to the fire. This caused one boy’s shoes to start melting, and another’s socks to start burning. Sunday morning, the group was found on the Asheville watershed property, not far from the Grey beard Mountain boundary by Robert Brown, who works at the North Fork Dam. Tired and hungry, they were greeted on their return with a bowl of Lucy’s hot, nourishing noodle soup. The nine hikers were indenti- fied as; Richard Bruggeman, Dave Graham, Cathy Claiborne, Deborah Lentz, Larry Mullen, Larry Kinner, Terry Grice, Jan Nelson and Debby The A. B. C. Recording Stars, “The Tams,” will give an after noon concert Saturday, Nobember 26, as part of our Homecoming Activities. That night, their back-up band, “The Impacts,” will provide music for a dance in Anderson Auditorium. M-A COLLEGE TO BE REPRESENTED BY NEW CHORAL GROUP STUDENTS ATTEND UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE Twenty-four Montreat-Anderson College students attended a one-day workshop on the United Nations, Fri day, October 7, in West Asheville. A full day of speakers and panel discussions were presented by the Asheville chapter of the United Nat ions Association of the United States of America. The UN Association is a privately supported group that is in terested in research and education concerning the functions and goals of the United Nations. Authorities from the State Dep artment and the clergy discussed from first-hand experience their views concerning the admission of Red China to the United Nations. A representativ'e of the Method ist Church mission field also gave an informative talk on the future of Africa based on her travels and ob servations. At the close of the meeting the Montreat-Anderson group was com mended by Mr. P. M. Limbert, the chairman, for showing such an inter est in the workshop. Throughout the coming year more activities of this nature are planned for the Montreat-Anderson College CCUN. It is the hope of the present members that interest and membership will enlarge in proport ion to the expanded agenda of acti vities being offered this year. Rosford. The group expressed ap preciation to all those who searched for them, and said they were very glad to be back at Montreat. Auditions were held October 10 for a choral group relatively new to Montreat-Anderson college. The group, called the “Merry-Macs” was first organized last year by Dr. Rus sell Wilson, Chairman of the Music Department. Last year the group was made up of nine members, 3 sopranos, 2 altos, 2 tenors, and 2 basses, who rehearsed 3 times a, week. The group developed a style of their own, and according to Dr. C. Grier Davis, Pre sident of Montreat, who said, “a very fine group of young musicians. From the 20 singers who report ed for auditions, a small ensemble was chosen on the ba.°is of voice qual ity, ability to blend, and musical ability. Sophomores were Jim Davis, Mari lyn Ball, George Peace, Stuart Sch- walm, Bitsy Mayer and Tom Guer- rant. The Freshmen chosen were Ed die Allen, Kathy Burns, Bertie Oster- man, Julie Ann Rountrey, Robert Smith, Brenda Thompson and Larry Wood. From this group, a perfor mance group of 8 will be chosen, de pending on individual merit. According to Dr. Wilson, “the group will present a difficult pro gram, representing choral styles from each period of music history.” Be ginning with Palestrina, Bach, Bra hms, and Handel, they will move to contemporary composers such as Paul Hindemith and Vaughan Wil liams, and will include arrangements by Peter Paul and Mary. Dr. Dougald Monroe, Dean of the Faculty, said he feels a group of this nature is needed to promote the school off the Montreat campus. The group will perform for churches, civic groups, high schools and colleges throughout Western North Carolina.
