"The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" is a
slow moving sentimental everyday tearjerker.
It is the story of a deaf-mute that takes upon
himself the problems of all the 'Unfortunate
people around him. The deaf-mute is
played by Alan Arkin whose performance can
be described as one of the best I have ever
seen. His fine work makes this movie
wcl I worth seeing.

town. When the deaf-mute moves in, he
Immediately shoulders the problems of a

This movie is worth attending because
of Alan Arkin's superb acting.
One of the most frequent novels to be
mentioned in "Have you read...?" discussions
among all classes of people Is most certainly
Margaret Mitchell's classic best-seller,
"Gone With the Wind." While there are
elements of controversy concerning both
the literary and the historical value of
Miss Mitchell's book, few will deny that
it Is one of the most remarkably readable
books ever published.
"Gone With the Wind" tells, with dramatic
sincerity, the poignant story of the South As
It Was, and the horror of the crushing defeat
of a society too arrogant and proud to expect
anything but an overwhelming victory In a
hopeless battle. Margaret Mitchell succeeds
in her efforts to create a living picture of
America at war and the painful aftermath
known as Reconstruction. Her passionate
Insight and understanding make "Gone With
the Wind" vividly real and powerful,

Scarlett O'Hara and the sophisticated

soccer; 1st year ever
by Sid Collins
The Montreat-Anderson College soccer
team continues to face the overwhelming
odds of a first year team. Although the
team has suffered two one-sided defeats,
the players continue to show plenty of
confidence and boundless energy. These
qualities are exhibited by the team's continuted
hustle and improvement in basic techniques.
There take much time and work. At practice
Coach Alderman, according to the players,
differs from other coaches. He helps the
players individually by pointing out their
faults In a pleasant manner. Good coach and
player relationships are another outstanding
attribute the team possesses. As time goes by,
they play more and more like a "group" instead
of "Individuals. "
In order for any team to do well, the
members should know one another's every
move. This seems to be a problem which
the coach and players are trying to
remedy. It can be solved by much
practice and diligent work from each
Defensive play has been changed from
a man to man to zone. This new defense
enables each player to give more
attention to a particular area of the field
rather than a specific player. The new
defense nas resulted in better teamwork.
Further, players have swapped around and
are doing better at their new position than
in their former one. All these changes
have come In the last two weeks after
two one-sided defeats.
When Coach Alderman was asked to
summarize his feelings about the soccer
team, he said "the overall desire and
emotional outlook on the part of the players"
pleases him. "The teams we have been
playing have been over our heads. I see no
reason why we can't win if we play as a
'team' rather than individuals."
Those teams referred to by Coach Alderman
are ones like Warren Wilson, Brevard, and
King College. They have had soccer teams
a long time and some of their players have
been in soccer all their lives. King, for
instance, had five players from foreign
countries. In many places, soccer is the
Montreat, on the other hand, has some
soccer players in their first year. Injuries
and sickness have riddles the team, reducing
the twenty-eight to eighteen. Recently,
according to Mr. Alderman, "There has been
a deep desire to play as a team rather than
as individuals. " He said that following
the Ben Lipon game, fundamentals had been
stressed in workouts. Coach Alderman
also appreciates the "fine attitude" among
the team in wanting to work together.
"We are not promising victory but are
promising one hundred-fifty per cent effort. "
