Fellowship Hall has started
something new on Campus. Each
Monday through Thursday evening
they have supervised study hall, led
by teachers such as: Dr. Russell
Wilson, Mr. Paul Kercher, Miss
Maude Parker, Mrs. Bunk Spann,
Mr. Red Aldermann, and Dr. D. M.
Monroe. People would be surprised
to see Dr. Wilson helping Debbie
Seabrook with her Spanish.
Fellowship has opened a room
for this type of study hall so that
those who want to study can have an
opportunity to do so. Miss Parker has
said that she thought it was a “good
idea.’ Dr. Monroe agreed saying that
he liked to see gi-oups of girls with
incentive to study. When there was
a Biology test one day, the preceding
evening Dr. Karl Snyder was at Fel
lowship helping anyone who needed
it. In fact there were even a couple
of boys attending.
This is a good idea and it can
prove to be quite effective. Next
year it is hoped that more dorms will
participate in this revolution in
The spirit of spring overcame
the forces of rain and the attend
ance and response at all the May
Day events was very encouraging to

Saturday afternoon the annual
May Day Program was forced in-
sido Anderson Auditorium due to
bad weather. The May Court was
introduced by Bo Lowry with the
setting of “May Day In Paris.” The
court was made up of Freshmen At
tendants, Judy Wynes, Sally Connell,
.Tamie Davey, Wendy Birkins; Sopho
more Attendants. Jeanne Clark and
Elaine Stinson. The Honor attend
ant was Vicki Miller. Mary Lou Bak
er escorted by Steve Gayle was
crowned Queen of May by Dr. C.
The disadvantages of being forc
ed inside at the last moment was
very streneous on the entertainers
yet the program went well with much
enthusiasm from the audience.
YEAR FOR CRIME
TbiK vear at Montreat, the stu-
bodv bos been subjected to the
vnins of crimp. One crime was steal-
in"-. Nearly 33.50 has been taken over
a period of 9 months. The victims
of tbpve thefts have suffered financi
ally as well as suffering the indig
nity of having someone enter their
rooms and run through their belong
A great majority of the thefts
have taken place in the small dorms
inhabited by boys. The main reason
is that the rooms did not have locks
for the doors.
The S. G. A. last week sent a
letter to Dr. C. Grier Davis where
in essence stated that he as President
of this college should take some act
ion to secure the property of the stu
Dr. Davis returned the S. G. A.
p. letter with a very courteous and
thoughtful letter, thanking the S.
G. A. for its good work. The S. G.
A. is anxiously watchmg to see what
Dr. Davis does about this situation.
The students have also been sub
jected to crime by being confronted
by Mountain Retreat workers and
threatened with certain harm if they
dared to speak with someone of

At 8:00 p. m. in Anderson Audi
torium New Hall presented the Fab
Five in a formal dance with decor
ations from a Parisien Garden.
Sunday Night at In The Oaks
the Blue Marlins presented their
annual Water Ballet Show under the
direction of Miss Lynn McSweeney.
This was a beautiful end of the 1968
This past month the S. G. A.
has sought to evaluate itself by de
termining how effective the system
of Student Government has been .
One of the first changes the S.
G. A. is contemplating is the organi
zation bf a Ways and Means Com
mittee, which would seek to investi
gate all proposed legislation. The
committee would be headed by the
Sophomore Class President, who in
the past has been given rather little
responsibility. The office of Vice-
President of the Sophomore Class
will be abolished since it is basically
a “figurehead” post.
The editors of the Dialette and
the Sun Dial will be dropped from the
Student Legislature so that they can
be members of the new Student
Union Board. A reporter from the
Dialette will still attend S. G. A.
The most drastic change which
has been considered by the S. G. A.
is in the form of two new regulat
ions. One would state that if a stu
dent is placed on Disiplinary Pro
bation, his parents will be notified;
as of now this is left to the dis
cretion of the Deans of Students. The
other change would be to establish
a new form of punishment. Social
Campus, would restrict a person to
campus, to the company of mem
bers of his own sex at all times, and
from going to the S. U. and any
social functions. He could attend
class, church, chapel and go to the
library and post office. He would
not bo allowed in any dorm but his
own. These two regulations are
planned as safeguards for the. stu
dents, since suspension causes class
cuts which may hurt the student aca
The S. G. A. has begun to try
to make Montreat into a progressive
junior college. The only way to do
this is for the students to back it
and the school in the days ahead.
