! '.A/elcome with enthusiasm the
appearance of the Cavalier on campus.
Every campus ought to he served by a
responsible publication v;hich can act
both as a disseminator of news and as
a sounding board for student opinion.
For this service there is no substitute
and I trust that the. Cavalier will
maintain and improve the tradition of
effective journalism which has been
built up at Montreat-Anderson College
over the years.
Having served previously as faculty
advisor to the newspaper I am aware of
the way in vjhich initial enthusiasms
drop off as the semester progresses.
This fading of interest frequently
leaves all the responsibility for the
writing and the publication of the
paper on the shouo
paper on the shoulders of one or two
hard pressed students. When this
happens the paper's effectiveness is
severely limited since it cannot reflect
the ran_ge of campus concerns or student
opinions. So, while I commend the
present editorial staff for having
assumed this responsibility I would
nice to also appeal to the student
body as a whole to be supportive of this
venture and to ensure a steady flow
of contributions. In this way the
Cavalier will be able to bear upon the
significant issues of life together
on this campus. Remember the words
of Wendell Phillips: "Let me make the
newspapers and I care not what is
preached in the pulpit or what is
enacted in Congress." dqnaLD R. MITCHELL

In Canada, he has appeared on CBC's

Although in recent years his style
has increasingly differed from that
of his father, JOSH, JR. is quick
to admit his debt for the techniques
that were developed during his years
of apprenticeship. From time to
time, their busy individual schedules
meet and then, to the delight of
audiences, they are heard together
"I'M ON MY WAY," JOSH WHITE, JR's first
solo album, has been recently released
