of new faces. Along with a new coaching
staff, several promising new players will
wear the Montreat-Anderson colors for the
Practice will begin early in October,
when the Cavaliers commence preparations
for the opening of the season on November
If the playing personnel seems suited to
that pattern of play, students and fans
can expect an exciting fast-breaking style
of play. From what I know of the personnel
at this point, it would seem that the
Cavaliers will possess an adequate supply
of the two main ingredients for that style:
size enough to get the ball off the defensive
board and speed and ball-hdndling ability
enough to execute the fast-break.
Defense will be highly stressed. Much
practice time will be devoted to the
development of sound individual and team
Among the newcomers who are being
counied on to contribute during ihe coming
season are: Gary Fteble, Curtis Brooks,
Richard Dillahunt, Charles Dudley, Robert
Hunnicut, Roosevelt Robinson, Ben Young,
Jim Norris, Sam Milner, and Bruce Rosemond.
Two returnees from last year, Austin Brady
and Bob Spinning, will have good experience
to lend to a basically young and inexperienced

1968-69 basketbal lers. We hope that their

Total P. E. Program
The total health and physical education
program with which Montreat-Anderson
College is concerned consists of three
aspects: the service program, intramurals,
and intercollegiate athletics. Each phase
is of equal importance. No program is
complete unless each of these aspects
is well-developed, co-ordinated, and
integrated to best meet the needs of the
entire student body.
The emphasis of the service program is
instructional. It is a process of education
through activities, which are selected and
carried on with regard to physical, social,
emotional, spiritual, and intellectual
The intramural program is concerned
with providing athletic competition for all
students and faculty of M-A College.
This program is of great importance by

It is the objective of the intercollegiate

With all of the leading players of a year
ago returning, the outlook for the MAC
tennis team appears bright. Led by Joe
and Gene Fuller, Bill Ratteree, and Steve
Austin, last year's netters finished with an
outstanding record of 8-1.
All of these boys will return and with a
year's experience behind them, they should
be improved. The main cogs will be the
Fuller twins who lost only one match
between them one year ago. Joe played
brilliantly at number one and Gene was
undefeated In number two position. Bill
Ratteree, last year's number three, was only
a step behind, however, and has the
potential to play as high as number one.
if a couple of freshmen tennis players can
be turned up to combine with this trio and

another successful tennis team.
