em until the
world, are fast becoming one of
the best known. They have ap
peared in New York, Washington
and colleges all across the coun
try. At their nightclub debut
Washington’s Evening Star said,
“It’s a troupe called The Gaslight
Singers — a pretty girl and three
boys — who seem destined for
certain fame in the folk music
field. See them now at the Shad
ows and a year from now you can
adopt a superior air and say, ‘Oh,
I knew them when nobody had
ever heard of them.’ ”
The group consists of three fel
lows — Earl Zimmerman, A1 Al-
cabes and Jeff Hyman — and a
young lady, Martha Velez, def
initely the most attractive mem
ber of the group.
Miss Velez, of New York City,
is the soprano of the group. She
attended the School of Perform
ing Arts and Long Island Univer
sity majoring in drama. She ap
peared in both summer stock and
off-Broadway productions before
joining the group.
Alcabes, also of New York, is
the comic of the group. He at
tended Long Island University as
a pre-dental student and is one
of the two guitarists of the group.

Richardson Preyer’s campaign
for governor has moved onto
three campuses and may even
reach Mars Hill.
Preyer announced earlier this
week that three outstanding stu
dent leaders have been selected
to direct his “Students for Preyer”
campaign. They are Charles
Shaffer, basketball and tennis star
at UNC; John Bynum, student
body president at N. C. State; and
Kitty Bernhardt, editor of the
yearbook at Wake Forest.
“S for P” is the first state-wide
student orgemization to support a
candidate for governor. It will
work closely with the “Young
Adults for Preyer,” which is head
ed by Art Weiner of Greensboro,
former all-American football
player at UNC.
In accepting their appointment
the three student leaders prom
ised, “We will announce soon the
establishment of ‘Students for
Preyer’ organizations on every
campus in the state.”
A new development in the
Peace Corps program, the accept
ance of applications from secre
taries, could promise an exciting
future to Mars Hillians now tak
ing secretarial science.
For the first time in its history
the Corps is receiving applications
from persons who have had sec
retarial training and at least two
years of working experience.
The experience requirement
does exclude most current stu
dents, but the new program does
hold promise for current students
who wish to work toward Peace
Corps assignment after they have
accumulated some experience fol
lowing their stay at MHC.
Secretaries are needed in Corps
offices in more than 40 countries.
The volunteers assigned will en

Campaign posters, speeches and
“politicians” hard at work will be
the scene for our campus during
the next week and a half as the
student body is once again put to
the task of selecting their four
leaders of the Student Govern
ment Association for the 1964-65
Those running for the var
ious offices are. President. Gary

Candidates have received their
nomination through the use of pe
titions and have turned them over
to the Committee on Elections
and Open Forums for final anal
ysis and approval. They have
passed this stage and all qualifi
cations have been met.
The official campaigning starts
on Monday (Mar. 9), under regu
lations set up by the Committee
on Elections and will close with
the actual election on Wednes
day. The voting will take place
in the Student Center between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00
p.m. Seniors who will be leaving
the campus to begin their prac
tice teaching will be given an of
ficial ballot on Friday, Mar. 13.
Their votes will be held in secre
cy and put into the ballot boxes
on Wednesday morning, joining
the votes of the remaining stu
dent body members.
Next week will be highlighted
with another first at our campus.
On Tuesday (Mar. 10) during the
chapel hour we will be in the
midst of a small-scale convention.
Each candidate will be allotted a
certain amount of time to speak
to the student body in order that
he might make known his plat
forms and accomplishments he
hopes to obtain. This will be en
livened with the usual banner
waving, parading and excitement
of any convention. The proposed
constitutional changes which have
been put before the student body
will also be voted upon at this
assembly with a two-thirds vote
necessary to pass them.
Behind the scenes of this week
and a half another committee.
Leadership Training, will be hard
at work. They will have nightly
sessions with all the candidates to
make smre they are familiar with
and aware of all their duties and
responsibilities. The sessions will
end with each candidate taking a
test that covers what the commit
tee has put before him.
Discussing the forthcoming
campaign, student body president
Ken Pearce said, “A lot of hard
work is put into the week and a
half that is soon to begin and each
member of our student body
should realize this as he makes
his decision as to whom he shall
support. Please remember it is
your student government and it
is only as strong as you make it.
Last year over 80 percent of the
students turned out to vote and
this can be topped this year with
the support of everyone. So when
March 18 rolls around, know your
candidate and by all means vote
for him and help put him into of
fice as one of your campus lead
