Page Two THE MARS HILL COLLEGE HILLTOP Thursday, March 29, 1973 Iwirsday, Editorial Insights By Frank Farrell The election of new SGA officers al ways seems to foster/ the same ' question, what will they do? Much has been said concerning the offi cers philosophies and major objectives. However, I'd like to point out just a few things that affect the everyday student. These may seem minor to many but they can sometimes become quite a nuisance. The first is the process of reserving rooms for ■ meetings. An attempt has been made to centralize room reservations through the Student Development Office. However, many fre quently used rooms must be reserved at different places. For example. Fine Arts 144 must be reserved through the Drama De partment, Edna Moore parlor in the Fine Arts building must be reserved through the President's office, and the Alley Door must be reserved through the CSM. There are others we could add to this list. Many times students will reserve a room through the Student Development Office only to find Letter to the EDITOR that when he gets to the appointed place someone else is using the room. (This has happened to this re porter on several oc casions.) ^is I would like to thank those who came to visit me while I was in the hospital (Feb. 4-8) for an appendectomy — for the beautiful flowers; the stuffed dog, “Joey”, the sweet and funny cards, the laughs and the added help and sound advice. Out of Stitches, Allicha “Al” Petrea LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS by Bibler IM- "IT'S PRSTTY ceWAlM NOW, PROPeSSOR PILUNGS —TH€ BOARD WILL ASK rod VOLIR ReTlf?eMeNT AT THE END OF THIS-TERM." FIL E 34 iL| by terry kuykendall'***^ clearly points out the need for an effective reservation procedure. Janitorial service in the residence halls on weekends also seems to be a problem. It seems that students might be utilized to clean up the bathrooms and halls during the weekends. The curriculum laboratory in the li brary which seems to be basically for ele mentary education ma jors and student teachers is seldom open at night. This seems ironic since many student teachers do no get back on campus until after 4:00, leaving them little time to uti lize the lab. These are just a few of the things that frequently both er me, there are many others. If there's something that rubs you the wrong way, write the Hilltop or better yet, contact one of your newly elected SGA offi cials. This week students are being bothered by having papers com pleted before we leave for Spring Break. Well, I have one more added headache and that is Frank Farrell, the editor of this paper, bothering me to complete this column. So for the tidbits of paraphenelia for the composite of the campus here are thev. Now. I am going to take a swing around campus to keep you up with what has been going on and what will be going on. I will start with the Drama De partment and end with the Stu dents Government office. The plays that were postphoned two weeks ago were finally shown yesterday. If you did not got to the Owen Building last night then you missed the one- acts Profundities Of Dammit With no small degree of alarm, I recently stumbled across the realization that most Mars Hill students probably approach the editorial page of the Hilltop with a regular feeling of anticipation of the negative. In considering these attitudes, I am the first to admit that the readers of these opinionated articles have a legitimate complaint. It is true that the Hilltop editors, disillu sioned by many of the inequities and absurdities which abound at Mars Hill, have taken advantage of the Hilltop as one of the few effective sounding pieces avail able to the students, and in doing so have unfairly swamped the editorial page with a flood of satirical essays, all of which have been responsible for the current aura of negativism. It is with this in mind that I intro duce this week’s profundity. For those who would persist in decrying the shortcomings and hopelessness of Mars Hill Col lege, I would point 4o the events that culminated last Sunday af ternoon at Tunnel Road Shopping Center in Asheville. From Thurs day morning at 8:30 till 5:30 Sunday afternoon, Randy Gib son sat uninterruptedly in a rocking chair, while dozens of his fellow students proceded to raise inore than $2,500 for the Easter Seal Foundation. If rocking for eighty-one hours were not incredible enough, it must be remembered that the money was collected through two days of rain, one of snow, and a fourth of gale force winds. Even more heartening was the fact that although the event was sponsored by a fraternity, many Mars Hill students with no con nection whatsoever to the frater nity devoted hours of their time in the rain and cold in order to benefit the cause of crippled , children. The pictures of these people will not appear in the Laurel, nor will their names ap pear in the Asheville Times. Still, it is the fact that such people indeed exist at Mars Hill that gives this writer at least a measure of optimism for the future of our college. It would be inconceivable to neglect this opportunity to thank Randy Gibson, Ken Sherill, and all who sacrificed their comfort so that others might walk.

I put quotes around men and women because it is question able in my mind if the admini stration really believes that we are. They seem to treat us like children with 18th century rules. Q.
