"I didn't know anything about the
YMCA before I came here", said
21-year-old Gil Stallings, a senior
from Louisburg, N. C.
He chuckled, "and now I'm
president of the 'Y'."
Gil went on to explain that he
had never really participated in
any school activities until he join
ed the YMCA as a freshman.
He joined the Public Affairs
committee, and his sophomore
year became chairman of the com
mittee. His junior year he was
elected vice-prsident of the Y
and this year, president.
As to why he joined the 'Y he
said, "People laugh when you say
this, but I felt an obligation to
participate in the school communi

Gil is on the Young Democrats
Committee, and a member of Del
ta Upsilon fraternity.
In preparation for his term as
president he spent six weeks this
summer at the Union Theological
Seminary in New York. "The title
of this school was Leadership
Training School," said Gil, "and
its main purpose was to teach new
presidents how to analyze people
and situations, with the hope of
making better Y's."
He has also taken a number of
trips to other colleges in order to
visit their Y's and gather new
Gil said the YMCA would pro
bably have a big affect on his fu
ture. "Sure, almost all the girls I
know on campus are connected di
rectly or indirectly with the
YWCA," he continued.
"AH kidding aside, I plan to go
into Law School here at Carolina,
and the YMCA has helped me tre
mendously in learning how to as
sociate with people, which will be
a great asset in law."
There has been a record num
ber of 48 girls entered in the Car

The membership requirements of
the Olin T. Binkley -Memorial Bap
tist Church here may cause it to be
denied membership in a regional
association of Baptist churches.
The church, which holds serv
ices in Gerrard Hall, admits mem
bers who have not undergone bap
tism by immersion, according to
its pastor, Dr. Robert Seymour.
This practice first became an
issue when the Binkley church was
taken under the "watch care" of
the Yates Baptist Association, a re
gional association of Baptist
churches in the immediate area.
The observation period was ex
tended beyond the customary
twelve months when the associa
tion became aware of the mem
bership policies of the church.
