BITS AND PIECES
It’s tough to be an editor at Mon-
treat-iri-the-raln: One has the desire
to give it all up, and turn into Teddy
Kennedy or William F. Buckley, Esq.
Responsibilities .to the craft and to
the race remain, however. So here, in
light of my total inability to develop
and sustain a complete thought pattern,
are some bits and pieces,
^Friends are nice: they keep us from
going mad. If you have no friends here,
try and make some. Once you cut through
the apathy and the ’’cool,” Montreat peo
ple are pretty interesting.
Atoinlstrators are nice, too. I think
they're wrong.sometimes but, political
differences aside, they are good people,
Set to know them, especially outside

Muh.i.mmed Ali is probably the greatest
heavyw'^s^ym, in history, and it’s good to
have him back. If he gets past Oscar
Bonavena (and that’s a bigger "if" than
most people think), he should have no
trouble with what's-his-name.
The Montreat-Anderson soccer team
exhibits what is best in col.I.ege athlet
ics. No luxury scholarships, no "Jock
mystique," no beating-up on "freaks:"
Fust a bunch of average guys who play
soccer for the fun of it, and who are
setting an extraordinary exa.Trple for nn
all in doing so.
We b^dly need a campus radio station,
A little country music (what's called
"country music" these days) goes a long
way. Worse still, I am getting sick to
the point of death with the "personal
ities" and the aboirdnable musical slop
which we receive courtesy of the two
Asheville rock outlets. As you may be
a\Jare, there is no "classical" music or
jazz on the air.
Election Day is 3 November. Vote. It
may not be much, but it's something.
As for interpreting the election, if
the G.O.r, loses less than thirty-five
to forty seats in Congress, it can rest.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
• A DEFINITION OF MATURITY
Many peopl.e are puzzled by the defin
ition of maturity. Even a great number
of Montreat-Anderson students are una
ware of the term's meaning. Many stu
dents regard the mature individual with
contempt and Jealousy.
Just how can one know the meaning of
maturity? An article in the Greensboro
DAILY NEWS by columnist Ann Landers says:
MATURITY is the ability to con
trol anger and settle differences
without violence and destruction,
MATURITY is patience, the wil
lingness to pass up an immediate
pleasure in favor of the long term
