Radio Goal Within View
A campus radio station, spon
sored by the Student Government
Association, has moved from the
planning stage to the preparation
stage and should be in operation
before too long.
First suggested last spring by
Craig Covey, then of the sopho
more class, the idea won admin
istrative council approval and fi
nancial support from SGA.
Most recent developments have
been the location of a studio-con
trol room in one corner of the
publications office in the Monta
gue Building and the preparation
of the room for utilization as a
station control center. The room
was originally constructed for a
similar station established in
1958 and is well-suited for the
needs of the newly proposed
Covey worked on the project
while attending summer school,
securing donations of parts and
equipment and consulting the ap
propriate persons on the college
He returned to the campus
early this month and began im
proving and remodeling the con
trol room, installing insulation
and sound proofing and setting
up broadcasting equipment.

several more weeks, but a new
voice for Mars Hill College stu
dents is definitely on the way.
The 1958 station operated from
the same location. A transmitter
in the attic of one of the gprls’
dorms and one in the attic of
Melrose gave good coverage of
the campus but limited broadcast
to the campus, which was a re

Communications Commission. The
station played “quiet” music and
broadcast campus news and an

Homecoming festivities, just
two weeks away, were assured
an eye-catching lineup of lovely
coeds with the selection this week
of the homecoming queen, a foot
ball queen and four attendants.
Judy Hill, junior from Mt.
Airy, was elected homecoming
queen Tuesday in campus-wide
balloting. Betty Pate, junior
from Kannapolis, Wednesday be

The attendants, one represent

Plans are being made by both
faculty and student groups for a
big homecoming celebration on
Saturday, Oct. 9.
A letter from President Hoyt
Blackwell will be mailed by the
Alumni Office next week to for

and recognized during the game.
Halftime will be utilized for
the traditional crowning of the
homecoming and football queens.
