ROY’S CAN’T BE BEAT FOR A SNACK OR DRINK The Western B.S.U. Spring Retreat met at Mars Hill during the week-end of April 21-23. All colleges in West ern North Carolina with organized Baptist Student Unions were included in this Retreat. The attendance was smaller than that anticipat ed. About forty students from the following colleges were our week-end guests: Gardner-Webb, Wingate, A. S. T. C., Lenoir-Rhyne, and the Nurses School at Win ston-Salem. The purpose of the Re treat was to provide a train ing period for newly elected B.S.U. council members. The local council members wel comed the visitors and con ducted them to rooms in the dormitories where students acted as hosts or hostesses. Meals were served to the B.S.U. group in the annex of the dining hall or at the sec ond sitting of meals. The meeting began at 7:30 with a social directed by Na dine Paxton, Sunday School Superintendent of the retir ing local council. The as sembly in the church audi torium was opened by Cal vin Knight, president of the state and Wake Forest B. S. U.’s presiding. Miss Jane Carroll, newly elected presi dent at W.C.U.N.C. and also State Devotional Chairman conducted a period of wor ship at the opening of each assembly program. Dr. Hoyt Blackwell welcomed the visi tors. Miss Cleo Mitchell, di rector of Religious Activities at Meredith College spoke to the group on “The Pur pose and Work of B.S.U.” A period of discussion closed the meeting in the church. Students ended their day by singing hymns around a bon fire in the amphitheater dur ing a period of meditation di rected by R. T. Howerton, state B.S.U. secretary. Saturday at 8:45 nine groups of delegates met for Bible discussion. After a period of worship, conducted by Jane Carroll, the dele gates were divided again into twelve groups of officers. Miss Kathryn Abee led the conference for Y.W.A. rep resentatives. The other con- t ferences and leaders were: presidents. Miss Cleo Mitch ell; first vice presidents; Harold Townsend of Duke; second vice presidents, Mrs. Dick Howerton; third vice presidents, Jane Carroll; secretary - treasurers, Flor ence Gordon; Sunday school representatives. Miss Mary Lee Ernest of E.C.T.C.; B.T.U. representatives, Cal vin Knight, and magazine promoters, Frances Pope. The message of the day was “Workers With Christ.” and the speaker made all who were from Mars Hill feel justly proud to say, “He is our own ‘Daddy’ Blackwell.” One of the features of the morning’s assembly was a demonstration council meet ing by the A.S.T.C. council, presided over by June Ayers, former student of Mars Hill. Saturday afternoon found some B.S.U.’ers climbing Bailey Mountain and others resting between tire some trips. At 5:30 all met at the Cascades for a picnic supper prepared by the college kitchen. A feature of the closing meeting Saturday night was a student forum telling of summer work. Those taking part were: Jimmy Pegram, “We Plan to Do Summer Work”; Walton Connelly, “Summer School B.S.U.”; June Ayers, “Pre-School Re treats”; and Florence Gor don, “Youth Revivals.” Jane Carroll told about Quaker Work Camps in Georgia. Miss Mary Lee Ernest spoke on “What B.S.U. Means To Me.” The entire group at tended the play in the col lege auditorium. Spring Retreats are an nual affairs. The Eastern Re treat was held at Wake For est the week-end prior to this one.
