Replaces Eric Severaid
Charles Collingwood, CBS news correspondent and reporter for the
award-winner “Eye Witness” series seen at 10:30 p.m. Fridays on
CBS-TV, will speak in Moore Auditorium at 8 p.m. Tuesday (Mar. 12).
Using the topic, “A Changing America,” Mr. Collingwood will be
substituting for equally well-known Eric Severaid, whose appearance
here was twice postponed and then cancelled due to his illness.
The entire student body, especially those interested in history, gov
ernment, political science and world affairs, has been urged to attend;
and several hundred persons from off-campus have been invited.
Winner of many top broadcasting awards for national and inter
national news reporting, Collingwood’s assignments have ranged from
his recent “A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy”
through visits with celebrities all over the world in “Person to Person”
interviews, to coverage of the Allied invasion of North Africa during
World War II. His “Eye Witness”
A painting, “The Briggs Place,”

jury-selected works submitted by
students of art in colleges and
universities of North and South
Carolina. John’s painting was
shown here during the student
display in January.
A sophomore who lives in Mars
Hill, John is the son of the local
postmaster. He is studying for a
career in interior design.
Pat Burton and Cecile Plott

careers program illustrated by
slides and entitled “Facts About
a Very Important Profession.”

According to Mr. Tilson, work
on the football field will be re
sumed as soon as the weather
and soil conditions will permit.
The total project has been divid
ed into five steps, which are to
be accomplished as the availabili
ty of funds permits. These are
(1) grading and finishing of the
gridiron proper, including the in
stallation of a storm drain sys
tem and a sprinkler system; (2)
installation of a new lighting sys
tem; (3) installation of the
track; (4) erection of concrete
stands on the east side of the
playing field; (5) erection of suit
able fencing around the area.
In all probability these steps
will not be completed in time for
the 1963 football season, he said.
Despite the difficulties created
by not having a real “home”

day he is arranging a challenging
schedule for this fall. Two games
have already been booked for
local play and the possibility of
playing two others nearby is be
Aside from the fact that not
much can be done in the way of
grading and landscaping during
the winter months, the most im
portant hinderance to progress on
this project, Mr. Tilson indicated,
is a lack of funds.
The decision to improve the
football field and erect a modest
stadium came last spring without
warning. There had been no long-
range planning for the financing
of such an undertaking as is cus
tomary on capital improvements.
There was no money available for
it. The only way such a project
could be financed was to “work
it in” to the total college budgets
for this fiscal year and next.
A $2,500,000 fund-raising drive
now under way in behalf of the
college includes three-quarters of
a million for physical education
and sports facilities. Contribu
tions and pledges are being so
licited from anyone interested.
Future plans depend upon the
success of this effort.
Anyone who knows the history
of Mars Hill College, especially
since 1935, knows that Dr. Black
well’s “faith” has been the real
key to the development of the
college. The timetable of ad
vancement may not always be to
our liking — or his — but it has
often been fulfilled.

Following graduation from
high school in the nation’s capital,
Collingwood attended Deep
Springs School in California and
went to Cornell, where he ma
jored in law and philosophy and
was graduated cum laude in 1939.
During the summers, he worked
as a cow-puncher in California,
a timber cruiser in North Caro
lina and West Virginia and as a
deckhand on a freighter.
Upon graduation from Cornell,
he won a Rhodes Scholarship
which took him to Oxford. He
also won a second scholarship, for
the study of international affairs
in Geneva. He was in Geneva at
the outbreak of World War II.
After a few months he abandoned
his studies and went to work as
a United Press reporter in Lon
After switching to CBS News
in London in 1941, Collingwood
covered the worst days of the
Nazi blitz. Later, he reported on
the North Africa campaign and
the Allied invasion of Europe.
After the Germans surrendered,
he covered the signing of the
armistice in a little red school-
house in Reims.
