Gaidneir-Webb WSl Turn Away Macedonia Sets
Over 1,100 Students This Fall Church School
BOILING SPRINGS — A host
of prospective high school grad
uates continue to knock at a
door which is almost closed for
them this year at Gardner-Webb
It now appears the Baptist
junior college will turn away
over 1,100 students for the 1966-
67 school year.
Robert Abrams, director of ad
missions at the college, says that
students who are willing to com
mute or to take residence sa.ne-
where in the community or in
Shelby may still be admitted but
that the estimated 600 dormitory
spaces are filled and there is a
waiting list of some length.
“Many students are coming to
summer school in hopes of be
ing accepted for the 1968-67
year,” Abrai.ns stated, adding
that these are placed on a wait
ing list and are promised no
thing but hope w'hen the first
session begins in August. Ovier
150 students are expected to ac
cept community boarding status
and, thus far, 132 are coming to
summer school in a remedial
program of matliematics and
English. Should they make two
C’s on these courses, they will be
aligible for admission, but only
if they are able to commute or
find area residence, Abrams
New applications now number
1,514 and over 500 freshmen
from 1965-66 have paid admission
fees and are returning. The 1,514
figure represents 333 more than
at this datie last yar. Before the
summer was out last year over
2,000 new applications had been
made and this year the figure
should nudge the 2..500 imark.
Gardner-Webb had 1,500 stu
dents last fall and college offi
cials are stating that 1,300 would
be the limit during this year, un
less there is a big rise in commut
Adding to general admission
pressure has been the new Cold
War Veterans Bill which enables
many veterans to attend college
with federal assistance. Abrams
indicated many vieterans have
applied for admission.
“Yes, there’s no doubt a''out
pressure being brought to bear
on this office at this time, and
its understandable,” A b r a ni .s
said. He went on to say that par
ents, guidance directors, princi
pals and others, wanting to help
students, have been working
iiard trying to gel students into
college. “It is hard to turn away
sudents who have a keen and
sincere desire to attend college
but eventually you reach the
point where tliere is notliing else
to do—irregardless of qualifica
tions or desire," he stated.
It was noted that the Associ
ate in Arts Degree ’Nursing Pro
gram has had 65 applications for
the freshman class and that 42
of the 45 spaces open in the
class have been filled. The soph
omore nursing class now num
ber 30 and will enter its second
year of training in the fall.

which is 36.2 percent of the
County’s quota of $.525,800.
Chairman Blanton said, “The
amount of Series E Bonds pur
chased in any one calendar year
which can be held by any one
owner has been increased fro-.m
$10,000 to $20,000 (maturity val
ue) and Series H Bonds from
$20,000 to $39,000 (face value),
with the following exception: a
tax-exempt institution receiving
Savings Bonds as a gift may
hold up to $200,000 (face value)
of Series H Bonds purchased in
any one calendar year. This priv
ilege and the new interest rate
will contribute, we feel, to great
er'Bond sales in North Caro
