On May 13 the Director of
Student Activities placed in the
mail box of each faculty and ad
ministrative member of the Mon-
treat-Anderson team a request
for a “frank appraisal of this
year’s activities” and “suggest
ions for the coming year.” On
the next day, in the May 14
issue of the HOT LINE a request
was made of the individual stu
dent that he put in writing
“criticisms of this year’s pro
gram” and “YOUR SUGGEST
IONS AND IDEAS for the com
ing year” and to place them in
the C. U. A. B. box in Gaither.
As of this writing the grand
total of six faculty and admin
istrative personel and no stu
dents have responded.
Several conclusions might be
drawn from this lack of res
ponse. In the first place one
might conclude that this is
simply a continuation of the gen
eral apathy, it has been said, has
pervaded the campus during the
whole year. But this does not
account for reported undertone
of dis-satisfaction with this
effort or the other, or what is
viewed by some as no effort at
Perhaps a second conclusion
might be that everyone is too
busy to take five minutes to
make such a written evaluation.
Where the faculty and administ
rative people are concerned I
can buy this as a somewhat
legitimate reason. However, they
would be some qustion as to
whether or not the average stu
dent has gotten down to work
wih his much intensity as yet.
I wonder if the more valid
reason might not be that, we all,
faculty member and student a-
like, are still playing that in
famous gam eof “letting George
do it.” For whatever reason,
good or not so god, is it not
possible that too many of us
have been saying, “I have an
idea, but surely someone else
will come forth and present it to
the people who need to know it?
I don’t have time, or no one will
listen to me anyway.”
This type of reaction to a felt
need in any language means the
same thing - the person who will
sit back and let, or rahter hope
that someone else will do what
needs to be done lacks that
sense of responsibility for the
total welfare that a democratic
society must have if it is not to
mire up in the mud of it’s own
Student activities are for the
students. If the sudents do not
exercise their responsibility for
making their desires known,
then who is going to interpret
for them? Who can the students
blame next year for an effort
that they deem ohter than what
Let’s get with it MAC student.
Get those ideas IN WRITING to
your C. U. A. B. President be
fore you leave the campus.
To The Students of 1970-71;
I wish to take this opportunity
to thank you, the students that
voted for me. I have stated a
number of times before that I
will continue the work that
Jerry McDade, as President of
Honor Council, has started. This
can only be done if each student
obeys the honor pledge and
honor code. If the students obey
the rules and regulations of the
College, my job as President will
be much easier. This will show
the townspeople tof Montreat
and Asheville that we are think
ing people, that we are not out
to just “raise hell”, but that we
care. I know that we can work
together and I look forward to
the opportunity of working with
each of you next year.

Returning students will find
next year additional course of
ferings in mathematics and his
tory. These have been added to
enrich the curriculum and to
allow students a greater freedom
of choice in areas of special in
A non calculus course entitled
Elementary Probability will be
taught first semester. It will be
followed in the spring by a
course in Finite Mathematics.
Remedial Math will no longer be
offered. Students who are un
certain of their ability in mathe
matics will have the option of
auditing a regular course until
such time as they feel ready to
take that course for credit.
In the Social Science division
a first semester course entitled
Problems in Modem European
History will concentrate on spe
cific historical events raher
than on a chronological survey.
For the second semester, stu
dents may elect to take Biograp
hies in History, a study of sel
ected lives. In addition to this
extension of historical studies
an opnortunty will be given to
qualified students to engage in
independent research utilizing
'■ource materials available in the
Historical Foundation. Montreat-
Anderson College students will
thus have an opportunity to
write history as well as to study
The curriculum committee
which proposed these additions
has approved also certain course
changes in the divisions of Fine
Arts and Physical Education.
Other proposals at present be
ing considered will affect courses
in Music and the Business Edu
cation and will shortly be pre
sented for faculty approval. Stu
dents are encouraged to make
their own suggstions known to
the committee through any of
the three student representat
ives: Beverly Carter, Nancy Fin
ley or Steve Garvin.
THE SUNDIAL, the MAC
Yearbook, will not be off the
presses in time for the students
to pick them up before leaving
the campus. Plans q,ow are for
them to be mailed to the stu
dents before the end of June. All
students are urged to give their
correct home address to Mrs.
Robinson in the Student Activi
ties Office before leaving school.
If your address is correct in the
Roster of Students you vnll not
need to do this.

BLACK MOUNTAIN, N. C. 28711
Montreat - Anderson College
has regarded Christianity as cen
tral to its life since it was estab
lished. Its Presbyterian founders
wanted to provide “a sound and
thorough education” and they
felt that education that merely
trains the mind without creating
a spiritual awareness toward
Christ was only a partial edu
The Student Christian Asso
ciation was created to help
others in the way that Jesus
Christ would want it to help. It
accomplishes this by ardent de
votion on the part of its mem
bers, fellowship among society,
and action. Often, lectures and
other collegiate activities are
sponsord in connection with the
Student Christian Association.
Students and other people are
given the opportunity to come
to a more personal relationship
with God, through Jesus Christ,
and the work of the S. C. A.
Opportunity for sejvice to
others is achieved by the Student
Christian Association Commit
tees that are branches of the
newly-formed Social Action
Team; and these committees
serve such places as the Dog
wood Manor Home, The Juvenile
Evaluation Center, The Child
ren’s Home, and the Veteran’s
Hospital. Also, another part has
been added to the S. C. A. an
evangelical team that is made of
certain members of the associat
ion; and their duty is to go out
to various meetings and congreg
ations and witness for Christ in
a personal testimony. This sum
mer, several members of the
Studnt Christian Association are
planning to attend the Institute
of Biblical Studies at Arrowhead
Springs in California as part of
the international Campus Cru
sade for Christ organization.
There is always an opportunity
for Christian service in the
society; and we members of the
Student Christian Association de
sire to do what the Lord would
want us to do.
Jesus said, in St. John 6:37,
“him that cometh to me I will in
no wise cast out.” This is the.
way the Student Christian Asso
ciation will be each member of
the student body is actually a
member; and no one who seeks
help or wants to be a part of the
S. C. A. will be turned away.
Sam McGinn, President
Dear Students of 1970 and 71;
The forthcoming year is full
of potential, affording us a rel
atively fresh start next year. I
shall be working first and fore
most in your interest. If stu
dents, with enlivened spirits,
hardwork and unity work with
me we will be able to make Mon
treat a more njoyable place to
Your Student Government
Association can be stronger and
more effective than ever before
if you support it. I challenge
those of you who return here
next year to return with a posit
ive attitude, determined to
struggle toward our highest,
common goals as one unified
I appreciate the importance of
this position of President of the
iS. G. A. and feel challenged by
the immense responsibilities.
Thank you for bestowing this
trust and honor upon me.

C. U. A. B. PRESIDENT
As next year’s C. U. A. B.
President my main goal is to
to establish more school spirit.
My efforts as President would
be in vain without the support
of you, the student body. I feel
that the students should have a
greater voice in the selection of
activities involved in Montreat.
However, this will not be possi
ble without the full cooperation
of all the students. Thus, with
all students working together to
wards a better C. U. A. B. pro
gram my main goal as President
would be accomphshed. One
Suggestion which has reached
me is for us to have a big band.
Because of our limited budget
the reaUzation of this suggestion
would be difficult. I propose
that the student body start a
fund raising drive at the beginn
ing of the first semester to supp
lement funds already provided
for activities of this kind. Stu
dents want more activities on
campus and they deserve them
but the activities can not be pro
vided without the cooperation of
the student body. It is easy to sit
back and criticize but it is better
to get down and work. Our goal
next year is tough because noth
ing difficult is easy. LETS BE
DOERS AND NOT TALKERS.
Donald Grooms, C. U. A. B.
Dear Students of 1970 and 71;
The close of another year is
just around the corner and as
President of the College Union
Activities Board I find it hard to
believe my term is up. Both the
fun and tribulation I have ex
perienced this year is something
I will long cherish and rememb
er. In three weeks the pressure
of Montreat will fade into the
pressure of summer and in turn
that will fade into the pressures
of a new school. But this semest
er will stay with me for, I hope
nly entire hfe.
Enough for this year, what a-
bout next year? Next year your
C. U. A. B. will be led by a
young man known to all of you
as Donald Grooms. He wiU take
all of your gripes, complaints
and complaiaments and make a
College Union which you should
be proud of. But to be proud of
anything you, the students need
to give him a hand. If I COME
back next year and see the
union in the shape I found it
this year you will hear about it.
The Union needs you if you
are going to need it. Don’t wait
until May of 1971 to get new
ideas, bring them in September
of 1970 or before. Montreat stu
dents, get off your rears and
help yourselves- Tell people
what you want, whether you get
it or not. Someone on the Coll
ege union will open up an ear,
I promise you that.
To conclude, let me extend
my thanks to a number of
people and organizations who
have been a help to me this sem
ester. My special thanks to Dean
John Davis and the Board of
Governors of the C. U. B., the
Administration and Faculty.
So long and have.a nice sum
