The ‘tutoring program is a group
of interested students from MAC,
working to help small children
with their homework. The group
meets each Tuesday night and goes
to the Mills Creek Baptist Church
in Black Mountain. MAC students
work with each child individually
on lessons until about 8 o’clock and
then return to campus. Before
leaving, the group tries to spend
some time in fellowship with the
children, singing and praying. This
helps the group to get better ac
quainted with the children, and
also gives them an opportunity to
witness for Christ.
On Saturday, December 8, 1973,
MAC tutors had the children from
the church here at Montreat as
guests. They ate lunch with the
students at Howerton cafeteria,
were given a tour of the dorms af
terwards and then took the child
ren to the Gym, where they roller
skated for almost two hours. Both
me children and students thorough
ly enjoyed the visited and there
are hopes that in the future, MAC
students can have more extracur
ricular activities of this sort for
the children.
Anyone interested in participat
ing in the tutoring program is more
than welcome to go. The group
meets in front of Gaither each
Tuesday evening at 6:30 P. M. (un
less otherwise posted). It is really
a wonderful opportunity to help
others and to grow in Christian

The Lookout staff, faculty, and
student body of MAC wish to say
to Dean Akers, “We sure are glad
that you’re back with us!”
Our Academic Dean and Bible
teacher here at Montreat-Anderson
has returned to most of his duties
following surgery in late Novem
ber. He expects to resume the L.
Nelson Bell Radio Bible Class soon,
and will finish the course in Acts
and Related Epistles after Spring
We feel that all who know Dean
Akers will agree that he most cer
tainly is returning to his spry na
ture and picking up with his du
ties as though nothing had happen
Dean Akers, we praise God for
your work in the college and for
your genuine concern for every
student, and are also very thankful
to Him for watching over you and
restoring your body and health.

Friday, February 1st, 53 students
boarded a 46-passenger bus headed
to Gatlinburg for the annual World
Mission Conference. Among the
college students that went were:
Dottie Williams, Fran Conger, Mar
ilyn Martin, Lynne Hanson, Steve
Mayhue, Susan Dantzler, Bryan
Pillsbury, Deborah Dickenson, Fred
Nichols, Laurie Young, Kay Jack-
son, Dottie Davis, Gordon Gartrell,
Sarah Richardson, Ed Bass, Buster
Dewey, Glenda Peverall, Preston
Parrish, and Mary Hair.
Once we got there, the liquid
sunshine poured down and it kept
pouring down all weekend. Our ac
commodations were good even
though a couple of people ended up
sleeping in the bathtub. The pro
gram was made up of several mis
sionaries home on furlough and
such people as Tony Fontain. He
had a good message in song and in
words for us. He said that Holly
wood is in just as much need spirit
ually as people in the Congo. The
real mission field is where you are
The group was then entertained
by the “GA”, or the General As
sembly singers of our college: Ann
Giampocaro, Mary Jane Freeman,
Sally Latham, Keith Money, Pam
Young, Melvin Dills, Mike Mitchell,
Natalie Wann, Ken Wilkenson, Leo
Muller, Pecky White, Pam Est-
ridge, Jean Crawford, Loretta
Porter, and Kathy Wilds. On this
trip the group was assisted by Gor
don Williams and Tex. While walk
ing down the street Saturday af
ternoon it wasn’t unusual to hear
burning or singing of songs that
had been sung in the conference
by the GA. They were a blessing
and inspiration to all that attended
the conference.
Those students attending got
back to Montreat in time for one
of those great Sunday night dinners
(too bad the SU isn’t open on Sun
days!) After dinner, most people
went to bed to try and catch up on
some of the sleep that was missed
during the weekend.
