The story that Anne Frank’s
diary covers is spread over a
three-year period during World
War II. Anne, a 13-year-old Jew

over a factory-in Amsterdam with
her family and four other people.

symbol of senseless persecution
and hatred throughout the world.
Foundations have been set up in
her name all over Holland, and
the refuge where she stayed has
been made into one of the chief
tourist attractions in Holland.
A new procedure for the selec
tion of a person to whom the col
lege yearbook will be dedicated
has been instituted by the editors.
Members of the senior class are
currently balloting on their choice.
If the first vote does not in
dicate a clear-cut preference, a
second ballot, listing the three
most frequently nominated per
sons, will be distributed to the 150
members of the class. Editor Gary
Goodwin said. Results will be kept
secret until the formal presenta
tion next spring.
Dedications in recent years have
been the choice of the yearbook
editors and advisor.
Cafeteria lines and fire escapes
were discussed by the Student
Commission Monday night.
Commissioners agreed that it is
difficult to find the end of a cafe
teria line when students sit at
tables while waiting for the lines
to open. They requested that lines
be formed around the walls and
decreed that anyone sitting at a
table away from the wall will be
considered out of line.
The lack of a fire escape in the
left wing of Huffman was men
tioned, and a recommendation was
made that the faculty’s Safety
Committee be consulted.
At its Oct. 28 meeting the
Commission noted that keeping
the library open until 11 p.m. is
not justified by use and voted to
permit varsity athletes to break
line in the cafeteria following
their afternoon practice sessions.
Mars Hill’s delegation to the
state BSU convention last week in
Greensboro made news with a sub
stitute motion regarding racial
tension in the South.
The action began when the
BSU group from the University of
North Carolina offered for adop
tion a letter addressed to the BSU
of Alabama in its state conven
Mars Hillians, joined by stu
dents from several other colleges,
found the communication not
quite to their liking and prompt
ly drafted a substitute letter and
offered it for adoption. After
considerable discussion the Mars
Hill letter was accepted. A subse
quent motion even asked that it
be adapted and sent to all of the
other state BSU organizations
within the Southern Baptist Con
The letter is as follows:
Dear Fellow Baptist Students;
Because of the present racial
crisis in the South, and recogniz
ing that the numerical predomi
nance of Baptists in Alabama and
in North Carolina places us in a
role of unique responsibility, we

Four Mars Hillians will attend
the International Student Retreat
at Williamsburg, Va., during
Stella Lamb and Yuck Pon Wu
will be accompanied by Miss Snel-
son, and Susan Walker will serve
as a hostess.
The retreat will include lectures
and a tour of the city, giving the
international students an oppor
tunity to learn more about U. S.
history and to acquaint themselves
with each other.
Convention Will Elect Trustees
Wake Forest College will be in
the spotlight when the Baptists of
North Carolina gather in Wilming
ton next week for their annual
convention, but Mars Hill will
claim a share of the attention of

will be the convention’s election

nominations will offer the follow

Asheville, Herman R. Eggers of
Boone, Walter N. Long of Bel
mont, Mrs. O. Leon Seymour of
Southern Pines and J. David Tay
lor of Charlotte.
Those whose terms are expir

Chapel Hill, former pastor of the
Mars Hill Baptist Church, Dr.
Carlyle Marney of Charlotte, Mrs.
T. H. Broyhill of Lenoir, W. R.

F. Woodall of Gastonia, C. C. Wall

Another trustee. Dr. W. Perry
Crouch of Asheville, will be nomi
nated for the important position
of general secretary of the con
vention. Pastor of the First Bap
tist Church of Asheville, Dr.
Crouch has been especially active
in a fund-raising drive for Mars
Hill during the last two years.
The more lively discussions of
the convention, however, are ex
pected to center on Wake Forest.
The administration and trustees
of the institution are seeking a
constitutional change which will
permit the election of out-of-state
residents and non-Baptists to the
school’s board of trustees. This is
necessary, they say, if the college
is to obtain the funds needed to
become a top notch university
with a good graduate program.
Opponents of the proposal see
the change as the first step in the
college’s separation from the de
nomination. A lively struggle is
expected to precede the voting.
Other items on the agenda,
overshadowed by the Wake Forest
proposal, will include a recom
mendation from the Christian Life
Committee that the convention go
on record as opposing capital pun
ishment and a request from the
General Board (the convention’s
board of directors) for permission
to sell the Baptist headquarters
building in Raleigh.
Dr. Blackwell and the Rev.
Charles Davis are planning to at
tend the convention.
