Cavalier to The Lookout. This

was submitted by Karsten Lynf^iolm
and was chosen because of appro
priateness of The Lookout to the

connection between Montreat com-

New MAC Food
Montreal - Anderson's food
Gommittee has made several ad
vancements in combatting the pro
blems concerning the cafeteria
rules and the food. We met ear
lier this year with the dietician
Mrs. Bustle, and our advisor,Dean
Standley to work on such problems
as: cold food-, to short of time
for breakfast, greasy food, dirty
silverware, and the general blah
feeling students have concerning
the cafeteria. We were promised
that to assure us of warm food,
the food would not be placed out
until five minutes before serving
time. Our Breakfast time as it
was could not be extended, but
until 9:00 A.M. we could have
milk, coffee, tea, juice, hot
chocolate, and doughnuts free of
charge. Between 9:00 and, 11:00
A.M. coffee, tea, and hot choco
late will be free. It was also
decided that occasionally there
will be an ice cream bar set up
for the students to make their
own ice cream sundies. We also
made plans to have a special
evening meal once a month. This
month our special meal was Janu
ary 26, with ah Italian theme.
We hoped to bring a little of
Italy to Montreat bv food and at
mosphere. Con't on page 2
Thiel man Recalls
Friendship with iohnsen
(Reprinted by permission of the
Asheville Citizen-Times)
Rev. Calvin Thielman of Mon
treal was attending a church fam
ily night supper when someone
brought him the news of Lyndon
Johnson's death.
The Presbyterian minister's
friendship with Johnson began
when Thielman was a 17-year-old
high school debater in Lamar
County, Texas, and Johnson was a
young congressman running for the
Senate.
When Johnson became President,
their friendship was renewed and
Thielman visited the President a
number of times in the White
House and three times was sent by
the President to Vietnam on spe
cial missions.
"I'm really hurt," Thielman
said Monday night on hearing the
news of the former President's
death. "We were at a church fam
ily night supper and the children
were playing when someone brought
me the news.
"When I announced it to the
group there was a very dynamic
switch. Even the little children
sighed, and I know they were
moved by it, and when I had the
prayer, there was the greatest
stillness such a contrast from
the mood just a minute before.
"I left right after that and
went up to Dr. (Billy) Graham's
house and we talked about his
last visit with President Johnson
and he told me how he talked to
him at thay time about the brev
ity of life--—yet we knew he was
not very well, no one had any i-
dea that death was imminent.
"My first thought was 'What an
irony that the peace treaty in
Vietnam will probably be signed
the same day as the funeral.' Ac
tually the war in Vietnam ruined
him; it broke the whole country.

Scholars Utilize
Historical Foundatioii
Although Montreal students
have been here for almost half a
year, it is surprising how few
know of the Historical Founda
tion. This organization isthe
wnly one of its kind in the world
which contains local church his
tories. It has intersting infor
mation on the common, ordinary
people that most people can iden
tify with. This building contain
four eleme.'.ts; a museum of church
artifacts, a center for archives
(all Southern Presbyterian, As
sociate Reformed, and Cumberland
Presbyterian churches ) , a lib
rary, and a cbllection of living
church history, such as the lar

The Spirit in David
Moves Montreat
David Hill is a very interest
ing person. Travelling around the
country as a mouthpiece for God,
he has been a great help to many
young people, especially here at
Montreal. David has been speaking
periodically at Miss Wilson 's
college-age Sunday School class
and has made himself available to
those on campus or in the commun
ity who need guidance; all he
asks is that those who wouid iike
to talk with him should call him
by telephone first, to make sure
he is home or is not counselling
someone at the time. David has a
new listing in the telephone book
and one may get his phone number
by calling information.
When asked how long he will
stay at Montreal and where he
plans to go from here, David re
plied, "since I've been a Christ
ian, the one thing I haven't had
Is plans."
