This is a new column by a
foreign student with a flair for
Over Thanksgiving I attended a
conference for International Students
living in the Southern States at the
Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly Grounds.
Other renresentatives from Montreat
Anderson College were Edwin Udogu from
Nigeria and Joseph Gabidon from Gambi.
The students attending the conference
were kept busy with activities during
the time. We were taken on interesting
tours, one to the Biltmore House in
Asheville, and the other to the
Cherokee Indian Reservation.
Maxim Tabory from Hungary and I were
MC’s for a talent show held during the
conference. This was one of the
'highlights of the conference because
I participated in several discussions
during the conference. One of the
tnost interesting was a discussion
entitled "World Religion." We were
asked to discuss the question, "What
will be the fate of the millions in
the world who believe in Hinduism
Confusciancism, Budhism, Islamism,
and others"? It was gratifying,
however, to hear the answer from a
Hindu-graduate co-ed: "The Hindus
recognize Jesus Christ, and when he
comes, he will be considerate to us."
There was a complete and profuse social
mixture of peoples of all races, creeds,
and Ideilogical background. Our
parting thought was the hope that all
might be one.
For several days now I have various
comments and opinions on the rules
for girls at Montreat-Anderson.
Some people think that these rules
are too harsh and some agree with
One of the main arguements is
the Late Minutes Rule. This rule
states that each girl is permitted only
15 late minutes. After 15 late minutes
the rule is as follows:
15-20 min 2 days hall restriction
21-25 min 3 days hall restriction
26-30 min 4 days hall restriction
31-40 min 1 weeks campus
41-45 min 2 weeks campus
46-50 min 3 weeks campus
51-55 min 4 weeks campus
56-60 min 5 weeks campus
61-over left to the descretion
of dorm council.
Is this rule unfair? Who knows.
We do know there must be rules of
some kind. If we the students of
Montreat feel this rule is unjust
what are we going to do about it?
If you have a gripe and have
a good suggestion to go along with
it. Write us a letter and we will
print it in the next Cavalier.
Don't gripe unless you want to do
something about it.
This conference was held from Thursday,
November 27 through Sunday, November ■
30. More than 250 college and university
students from 41 countries representing
akk continents of the globe attended.
As one can see my column
has different contents this week.
For several editions to come I will
explore the problem of rule revisions,
especially for girls.
My content will change again as
the year progresses. What will be
next only the Shadow knows.
I walked through the lounge
Just the other day
Heard tales of Improvements
Or so said they.
More professors? New courses?
No, these would do not.
What this place needs most
Is a new parking lot.
A wider election
Of books in the store?
Or stools for the lab?
What could we need more?
"Stop your demanding.
Students, if you please
What this place needs most '?^"
Is a lawn full of trees."
More books in the library
For studies j to jtist read.
Aren't all these things
That students most need?
"No," say the spenders,
"Are all' your baoins nobby?
VJhat this place needs most
Is a fountain in the lobby."
Students, arise, pay attention
To what the big spenders
Seem to think that we need
No professors, no ideas
Or new fields of study?
What does it matter
If your tires get mussy?
Why can't we wait
To have a few trees?
It's the students, not garden
That must be appeased.
Think now. Oh students
What's important to you
Education or fountains
All bubbling and new?
For you cannot judge
By a cover or looks
But you can rate a college partly
By its library of books.
From the Western Pedimont
I am having troubl being
accepted here at Montreat. I've
tried to be friendly but that does
not help. I've joined in activities
but that doesn't help either. What
can I do?
To be accented one must give
of himselves, especially one must
be himself. Do not trv to put up
a tront or an act, because
most people can see through this
frant and act. Try to be outgoing
and above all friendly; speak to
everyone and smile.
If that doesn't work dry Scope,
and a little Secret deoderant.
Even though I'm in college now
and able to conduct myself as an adult
my parents think different. The three
times I've been home since September
I have had earlier curfews than we
have at school. They have to know
where I am every minute. I have tried
talking to them, but it doesn't change
the situation. I need your advice.
Even though yuu are in college
your mother still considers you here
baby, and until you're twenty-one
you must do as your parents say. I
personally think that for a college
student one is an ideal curfew. Sit
down and explain to your mother and f
father that if you can conduct your
self in a way becoming to a lady or
young man then you can take care of
yourself. Ask her to let you have
a trial weekend with an hour extension
on your curfew, and if you get in on
time, them maybe she will always let
you be in an hour later.
Can you love two people? Please
This is a question I have asked
myself many times, and I believe that
it is wholly possible. A person is
capable of loving many people, but
you always feel more for one person
than another. Consider yourself
lucky that you love two people
equally and not one too much, because
loving one person too much
can lead to trouble if the love is
not equally returned.
