Excitement was in the air this weekend when the General Assembly per
formed its first concert in Burlington, N.C. According to rumors, both the G. A.
and the church they sang for gained from the experience.
There are 12 members in the group this semester including their sponsor-
advisor Betsey Oliver. Each member sings, and four persons in the group are
top notch instrumentalists. Rob Robertson (W.Va.) and Kathleen Schuit
(N.C.) play acoustic guitar. Jon Brown (Fla.) plays the flute and Pete Schula
(va.) accompanies the G.A. on the piano. The main vocalists are Jane An
drews (va.), Georganna Rice (Ga.), Becky Rose (Fla.), Mamie Thrash
(Tex.), Diane Wadsworth (ohio), and the groupfe leader, Ken Watt (Fla.).
For those of you who have been wanting to hear the G.A. this year, there will
be several opportunities in the next month for you to do so. They will be per
forming during the college Sunday School class on October 16. Also, theyll be
singing during Parents Weekend on November 12. For more information
concerning their schedule, see a G.A. member, and keep an eye open for those
dates, and an ear open for this yearS General Assembly.

Fellowship Hall Renovated
As the student body of Montreat
enlarges, the school saw the need to
expand the women’s dormitories.
The solution to this problem came in
the purchase of Fellowship Hall
from the Mountain Retreat
Association., Plans to renovate
Fellowship Hall have been in the
making for a year. The work began
in May of last year after graduation.
Fellowship Hall was built in 1937
and is now undergoing repairs in
electrical and plumbing fixtures.
The interior is also being revised
and carpeting and furniture are
being provided for the building. The
first and second floors of Fellowship
Hall are to be finished by the end of
December. The third floor of the
structure will not be in use until the
funds for the project are available.
The reconstruction of Fellowship
Hall has cost approximately $125,000
for the first and second floors and is
estimated to cost $150,000 for the
work involved in the renovation of
the third floor. This building is
expected^o hold 44 students and will
be open to the public for summer
Also being discussed is the
renovation of Howerton Hall.
Drawings have not been furnished as
of this writing, but this project is
estimated to cost $250,000. Ideas are
being discussd now for this plan and

summer if the necessary funds are
These buildings when completed
are to resemble Davis and MA Hall
in quality and character.

On Sunday, October 3, sixteen
people made a valiant attempt to
restore the natural beauty to an area
that was beginning to show the scars
of human occupation. The area I am
referring to is Montreat and the
abuse I speak of is commonly
called litter. The following people
deserve thanks for doing a job that
everyone should have had a hand in;
Susan Anderson, Don Jackson, Tim
Wannamaker, Michael Owen, Bill
Snidow, Brent Jarrett, Elizabeth
Van Doren, Eric Buyart, Linda
Buyart, Linda Gorham, Cihip
Cameron, David Minyard, Betty
Maxwell, Robert Russell, Mark
Grubb and Bobby Dick. A very
special thanks goes out to Jim King,
the cafeteria manager who
graciously donated the trash bags
used by the cleanup crew.
If you truly care about the beauty
and environmental integrety of
Montreat then show up for Clean Up
Day II! The date and time for this
project will be announced and
displayed on the bulleting boards for
those of you who can read.
