Many of you are often wondering
what possible news could come
from the library; that firm, stable
institute of learning at Montreat.
Well, if you think nothing new hap
pens in the Library, you’re abso
lutely right!!! No, really, we have
several new student aids working
this semester. Greg Stewart and
Bill Buchanan are in Audio Vis
uals, and Terry Brown is serving
as Library Assistant. Mike Hayes
left to become a hall counselor and
Mitchell Parker works in the new
dark room in the Science Build
ing.
The week of January 21st, our
stable institute of learning did an
audio visual taping of Dr. Newton
and one of his Bible classes. While
in the process of taping, a swing
ing microphone struck poor John
Montgomery in the head! (Maybe
they were trying to tell him some
thing.)
For the last several weeks be
fore Christmas, one could admire
“Mike Sherrel” originals in our
foyer. Pottery and brass belt buck
les of all shapes and kinds were
for sale. Now, one can admire the
Drama projects built by students
to be miniature stages of plays.
Two in particular which need spec
ial recognition are Phil Thrift’s and
Lynn VanArsdale’s, but all are ex
cellent.
Now when you walk into the
glass foyer of the Library you
might think it is a florists or that
you are in the tropics, but alas, no,
still the same Library; but now we
have a potted tree to add color,
beauty, oxygen, and shedding
leaves to our L. Nelson Bell Li
brary. It’s name is familiar to all
of us as “A Tree Grows in Brook
lyn.”
Last but not least, Mrs. Helen
Medford Cartvmght presented to
the library, six books written by
her father, W. Clark Medford.
These books, dealing with Western
North Carolina, and illustrated by
Mrs. Cartwright are a welcome ad
dition to the library. Mr. Medford,
now 91 years old, was present for
the presentation. Mrs. Cartwright
is well known for her work with
retarded children in Western North
Carolina. I'hank you, Mrs. Cart
wright.
Thus concludes another chapter
0^ “As the Library Churns,” and
remember that above all, “silence
IS golden.”
