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
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.

seems ironic since
many student teachers
do no get back on

little time to uti

This week students are being

added headache and that is

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.

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.
Enough said.

Because your checkers

A Dear John,
Well, not exactly coed liv

allow “Men and Women” to
live in the same area, that
being boys hill. However, we
are already living is the same
area, that being Mars Hill.
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.
