The 1969 Montreat-Anderson tennis
team opened its season on March 28,
when it traveled to Boiling Springs
to meet Gardner-Webb.
The Cavalier netters will be seeking
to improve upon a good 6-2 record of
a year ago. Three new opponents are
included in an eleven match schedule
that runs through May 14. The new
opponents are Gardner-Webb,Mitchell, and
the Appalachian State Freshman team.
Prospects would seem bright with
the top four players of 1968 returning
for another season. Joe Fuller, number
one a year ago, heads the list of
returnees v/hich includes his twin.
Gene, who was undefeated in singles
play at number two last year. Bill
Ratteree, who was number three, could
challenge the Fullers for a higher
position this year. The fourth returnee
is Steve Austin who contributed heavily
to last year's fine record.
Several newcomers are battling for
the remaining positions on the squad.
They are: Larry McSween, Ghanshyam
Udani, John McCrea, Kenny Chow, Bill
Amos, and Charles Lance.
Poverty cannot be understood or measured by bare backs and empty bellies;
it invades and finally conquers the whole core of existence and being,
it benumbs the hand, it fetters the mind, it chills the heart, it cor
rodes the spirit and makes hope a dweller in dark and forbidding places.
It must be measured by all the things which make human beings human,
decent, noble and sublime - as integral parts of the human race and the

The thing about Montreat that
has impressed me most, and has
been most meaningful to me this
year is its unique concern and
commitment to the individual
This commitment is manifested in
most areas of our life as a
community. We see it in faculty
members who go out of their way to
be with students in places other
than the classroom and thus get to
know them as real persons instead
of mere students. We have an
administration which student^ for
the most part, feel free to approach
and who respond to their needs by
structuring a relevant curriculum
and by acting as effective counselors.
Last but not least we have a student
body whose members are committed
to one another. While they have
rules none are ironclad and the
Honor Court is willing to disregard
the prescribed measures in order to
benefit the individual.
It is this type of commitment that
both demands and enables those of
us who are not students to relate to
them on a personal basis. This
type of mutual respect between
student and non-student gives those
of us who are involved a rich
experience. It better enables all
of us to learn, to teach, and to
