Charlotte College, Charlotte, N. C.
The Charlotte College Social
Committee went into much care
and preparation to present to C.C.
one of the most enjoyable and
sociable dances ever to be present
ed at Charlotte College. The gym
nasium was the scene of masses of
swirling swinging dancers on the
night of February 20 when Char
lotte College was the site of a
radio broadcast and at the same
time a danceland haven.
The special guest at the dance
was Jimmy Kilgo who presented
his well known “Kilgo’s Corner”
program over station W.I.S.T. In
stead of having an orchestra to
“reel and deal” the music, the stu
dents were serenaded by varied
musical arrangements played by
the most popular instrumental and
vocal groups of the country. Of
course this music came to us via
a hi-fi record player.
Jimmy is a graduate of Char
lotte College. After having grad
uated from C.C. he attended the
University of North Carolina to
earn his A.B. degree in radio. While
at U.N.C. Jimmy served as presi
dent of the Communication Club.
Jimmy joined station W.I.S.T. in
1952 and has since built quite a
name for himself around Charlotte
and vicinity. As for his announcing
qualities, tune to station W.I.S.T.
and listen for yourself.
A coffee hour was presented in
accordance with the dance and the
guests had everything they needed
for a special evening.
Another help in making the acti
vity a success was the presence
of nurses from Presbyterian Hos
pital who were invited to attend.
The fellows that came stag didn’t
have any trouble finding a part
ner and we’ve heard that some good
friendships blossomed from the oc
casion. In retaliation to C.C.’s in
vitation the Presbyterian nurses
invited C.C. students to a dance at
the hospital. There was a big
lesponse to this invitation also.
It was 8:05 o’clock on a Thursday night. The halls were quickly
emptying and the noise and conlusion was dying in the distance. I had
time for just one more cigarette befoie crossing the threshold into a
new world of unsolved pioblems.
Upon entering the library anntx I became spellbound by the dead
quietness of the people seated around the Student Council table. Right
away the thought struck me that someone had died. But upon a hurried
investigation into this impossible situation I soon discovered the cause
tor such a profound quietness. Darrel Avery was absent tonight. His
Studebaker had became lodged l)etween two ant holes and he was ti'ying
to get it out before the ants tore it to peaces part by part. He told me
the other day that his car was the only automobile spoken of in the
Bible. The Lord said “Have mercy on all creeping creatui’es.”
T he roll was soon called and Bill Vickery was asked to give a finan
cial i-epoi't toi' the tiuartei'. This was a vei’y pi'ecai’ious situation because
Bill was in the middle of a deep snooze. After an eye opening moment
he began searching through his pockets for his report. Bill Reid finally
became annoyed and blasted out “I know good and well that we’re not
broke.’ Finally Mr. Vickery came out with the report. It was on the back
side of an adding machine tape of which he had used to total his poker
winnings of the night before.
Suddenly Ken Harri.s jumped out of his seat like Tarzan capturing
gorillas and yelled, “The annual needs more money.” Ann Padgett
quickly retorted with, “Who do you think I am. Superman?”
John Scroggs was asked to give a report on the assembly committee
and since he wasn t present at the meeting everyone took advantage of
the opportune moment and a vote was taken to do away with the planned
assembly. I’ll give anyone in the Council two to one odds that he’ll be at
the next meeting with a shotgun.
The Student Council has been thinking of getting together outside of
planned meetings for the purpo.se of getting things off their chests with
out taking up time at meetings. They have decided that if they can have
so much fun together at the scheduled meetings that the fun they can
have outside a meeting will be immeasurable.
After reading this column one might think that the Council is all
fun and no work. If you think this you are only half correct. The Student
Council controls all activities that are held at C.C^ and also controls much
of the money paid by the students for extracurricular events. If you
have any “beefs” about what your money is being spent for, come and
argue with us.
By the way, we’d like to say that Gus Travis doesn’t have anything
on this column.
