Ulll.X rxMer llW if I'"" LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS Having had their fill of apathy and having suf fered long enough from backslides in progress nour ished by negligence, MHC students have resurrected their minds and activated themselves for the per petuation of effectual, progressive change on this campus. In a mere matter of weeks, various student factions have immersed themselves in the business of legal and pacifistic revolution (going on the as sumption that “revolution” may be interpreted as conditional replacement of obsolete systems). In the short span of time since the last issue of the Hilltop, the student body has been assured of a new chapel system, to be effective as of Fall, ’69. SGA and Class elections have pumped new blood, fresh ideas and unspoiled courage into the student government’s body. On Wednesday, March 12, after six interested students were refused admittance to the weekly meeting of the Student Affairs Council, in which proposals for changes in the Handbook were being made. Dr. Bentley, with the co-operation of the Council, had the remaining meetings of the year de clared open to all students. The meeting time was changed from mid-afternon to early evening for the sake of convenience. A refreshing, swift-moving current in the usually stagnant stream of things, the Students for a Liberal Education (SLED) have initi ated a curriculum evaluation which will be issued to all students before fall registration. This evalua tion will be beneficial to students in their selection of courses and professors and also helpful to the Ad ministration in their own evaluations. LKe VCtl.ELLEN, 8QTVOU ALWAYS TO ON TH' Def=eNsive:" ia edUo^. . • Recognizing these actions and foreseeing similar ones in the immediate future, I find it impossible to agree with the member of the administration who told me last week that “nothing newsworthy is hap pening on this campus at this time.” Many things are happening and they are happening fast. I hope the apathy that reigned last fall on this campus was only a reaction to a vaccination of passivism injected into our minds by campus environment. I hope we are now immune to this fatal disease of laziness and that, rejuvenated by a new hope and encouraged by the changes brought about in the last two weeks, we will make rapid progress in all aspects of the oper ations of this institution. Love, Mr. Nixon said in a nationwide radio address on youth, “We must listen to the voices of dissent, some times strident, sometimes cool, because the protestors may have something to say worth listening to. . . . If we dismiss dissent as coming from ‘rebels without a cause’ we will soon find ourselves becoming leaders without an effect.” From the private office of J. Theodore Cassels Hi, I think that what has been wrong with me lately is that my resistance to germs is down. This is partly due to lack of vitamins in my diet (cafeteria). This lack of vitamins has ruined my resist ance, made me sick, allowed me to get a sore throat and given me a generally “blah” feeling. The school wonders why the students are listless, dull and apa thetic. I definitely believe that it is partially due to the weak diet received day in and day out. Yesterday I went to the drug store and obtained for a substan tial but well spent price, a bottle of vitamins. After two days my spirits are high and I am feeling much better. I hope that by the next time you see me I will be vitamin rich and well again. I am not saying that vitamins £ue a cure-all but I think they help. Love, Ted Editor's note: The following letter was left in my typewriter the after- noon of Ihe paper's deadline. It refers io an assignment to write a feature re- •view of Jack and Sally Jenkins' con cert. After several attempts at this gammut, I have decided that I liked them but lack the very in spiration on which a reviewer thrives. Perhaps I will be able to do it later on but at the moment Spring Fever aboimds. Love, Mike Swaim Dear Editor# I would like to submit the following letter to be published in the Hilltop. I feel that many students are down on the older generation and feel a def inite gap between themselves and their parents. I had the same problem until this letter arrived. Parents are under standing! ^MHC Student Dear Editor, I would be very interested in knowing whether or not there is any correlation between the sheets hanging in the cafeteria and the sheets missing off the lines in the basement of Stroup. If there are any thieving politicians, keep yourselves covered . . . I’m warm on your trail. —Kathy George Dear Son, I am very grateful and humble that you ask me for advice. I just hope the answers I will give will have some meaning and fill some of the void you are now experiencing. I pray that these words will help you tolook beyond to the great opportunities that are just ahead of you. My definition of problem is: opportunities that need exploring. Let’s look at your problem with reference to your witness on campus. Difference of opinion is just another method of exploring. I’ll bet there are not too many people that would bet (Continued on Page 3) the Mars Hill College Hillrop Editor-in-Chief Linda Baldwin Advertising Manager Judy Pait Proofreaders Ken Yates, Britt Brittle, David Cuningham Photographer Ted Ellmore Sports Editor Butch Palmer Typists Kathy George, Carol Kirksey, Nancye Knight Cathey Serota Ken Yates Mike MiUs Jim Hayes Smith Goodrum Sonny Fenton Allen Lane ■ Second-class postage paid at Mars Hill, N.
