17 OCTOBER 1963 


We at North Georgia College are 
proud to have two former North 
Georgia students, Captain L. C. 
Rew, Jr., and Captain W. V. Al- 
mand with us this year. 

Capt. Rew, born in Prattville, 
Alabama, entered N.G.C. in 1948. 
After one year, he was accepted 
at the United States Military 
Academy, West Point, New York, 
and there he received his com- 
mission. After going to Ft. Benning 
to receive his airborne training, 
he was transferred to the 44th 
Infantry Division at Ft. Lewis, 
Washington, where he served as 
platoon leader, company exec, and 
assistant battalion, S-3. When th; 
44th became the 2nd Infantry 
Division, he was assigned to the 
Saudi Army Infantry School in 
Saudi Arabia. 

Capt. Rew was then transferred 
to the U.S. Army Security Agency 
School at Ft. Evans, Mass., where 
he served as Chief and Assistant 
Chief of instructor training. Be- 
fore his assignment at N.G.C, he 
served in Germany as aide to U.S. 
Commander, Berlin, and as com- 
mander of the combat sii^ort 
company, 2nd Battle Group, 6th 

He received the National Defense 
Service Medal, the Berlin Occu- 
pation Medal, and the Arm«d 
Forces Expeditionary Medal. 

Captaia Almand, who was born 
in Laurel, Mississippi, entered 
North Georgia College in 1992 and 
after two years transferred to the 
University of Georgia. After re- 
ceiving his comniission, Capt. Al- 
mand commanded a basic training 
unit at Ft. Jackson, South Caro- 

H« is in the Signal Corps and 
has attended the Wire Communi- 

The outstanding cadets from 
North Georgia College at Summer 
Camp were Allen Gattis, Bill 
Dollar, Vic Brown, Theo McDon- 
ald, Jimmy Jiles, Henry King, 
Marvin Mitchiner, Carol Glenn, 
Ronnie Roper and Tony King. 

Miss Sylvia Southard, daughter 
of Dr. and Mrs. Orby Southard, 
was recently honored in a special 
Scholarship Recognition Program 
at Wesleyan College. Miss South- 
ard, a junior, was awarded both a 
Talent and a Class Honor scholar- 
ship. We're sure the head of the 
Education Department is justifiably 
proud of his daughter's achieve- 

cations School at Ft. ManmoutS, 
N. J. 

He was then transferred to 
Cherborug, France, where he 
was detachment Commander of the 
Submarine Cable Head. Capt. Al- 
mand was assigned here from 
Heidelberg, Germany, where he 
was a member of USAREUR head- 

He has been awarded the Com- 
mendation Ribbon and attended 
airborne school at Ft. Benning. 

Captain Almand and Captain 
Rew both said that they were very 
impressed with the changes and 
additions at N.G.C. Both are 
married and have children, and 
Mrs. Almand is presently attend- 
ing North Georgia, working toward 
her mathematics degree. 

We also have with us this year 
a new Armory Sergeant, S/Sgt. 
G. E. Hensel, who was born in 
Noith Lawrence, Ohio. 

Sgt. Hensel haF been in the 
Army since 1945, when he took 
basic training at Ft. Benning. He 
was in the 2nd Division, Ft. Ben- 
ning; 3rd Chemical Battalion, Ft. 
Bragg; 24th Division, Korea; and 
in the 17th Artillery in Germany. 

He attended supply school, am- 
munitions school and the NCO 
Academy. Two awards of the Good 
Conduct Medal have been received 
by him, and also the Commend- 
ation Ribbon. 

Sgt. Hensel, when asked how he 
liked the organization of the ROTC 
program at N.G.C, replied with 
a big, hearty "Fine!' He has been 
married 12 years and has four 

We hope that these three men 
will benefit as much from their 
sojourn as we will. 


We feel that those who knew 
Major Jules Trepagnier will be 
interested to learn that he has 
been assigned to Military Advisory 
Assistance Group No. 88, operating 
near Saigon. Maj. Trepagnier is 
serving as Senior Area Advisor 
and has in his command one In- 
fantry regiment, 10 Ranger com- 
panies and a Special Forces team, 
not to mention various support 

Although we have no word on 
his progress in Vietnam's fight for 
freedom, we are sure that he will 
have success that wat his at NGC. 

The Physics Club held its orga- 
nization meeting on Monday, Oc- 
tober 7, and discussed field trips 
after the following officers were 
elected: Tony King, president; Key 
Dismukes, vice - president; Peg 
Miller, secretary & treasurer. 

The next meeting will be held 
Monday evening, November 4th, at 
which time all interested persons 
are invited on a tour of the North 
Georgia College Planetarium. 

140 yr. old 

Who would ever believe that a 
century and a half ago a way of 
tradition and history could be 
wrapped up in the clang of a bell? 
Well, it can be and has been, right 
here on our campus. 

The bell Vm talking about is, 
of course, the same one that has 
been mounted in the steeple of 
Price Memorial since 1840. 

Minted in approximately 1836, 
this historic landmark has far out- 
lived even the memory of its 
makers, who for some unknown 
reason, failed to place even the 
smallest of identifying marks upon 
the faithful bell, thereby rendering 
its place of origin a mystery even 
today. Who can imagine where this 
hourly friend came from or what 
sights it has seen? 

Perhaps it pealed the hour that 
dark day in 1861, calling the citi- 
zens together to tell them that 
the Civil War had begun. Perhaps 
the bell was ringing the night 
Price Memorial burned to its 
foundation, or even the night of 
V-E Day. Who can tell . . .? 
Certainly not the bell. 
Try to imagine what amazing 
changes our iron companion has 
witnessed: The first automobile 
in Dahlonega; the roar of the first 
plane ever to fly over North 
Georgia, and, yes — even the 
change of a once tremendous cow 
pasture into our drill field. 

Try again to imagine what It 
would be like without any friend 
to let us know the cl)«nge of the 
hour Or the coming of the end of 
each day . . . and from now on, 
when the clang of that iron clock 
rings out across the campus, think 
for a second about just who that 
bell in ringing for now. 

Lift your head and walk with 
pride — 'Hell's Bell" has lasted 
almost a century and a half; all 
you have to struggle through is 
four years. 


Last year the Officers Club pro- 
posed that the Class B uniform be 
changed from khaki to tropical 
worsted. It was suggested that in 
the long run costs would be lower 
and the uniform would be more 

The present cost to incoming 
freshmen for khakis (four trousers, 
three long-sleeve shirts, and three 
short sleeve shirts) is $39.00. The 
TW uniform, consisting of two 
trousers, two long-sleeve and two 
short-sleeve shirts, would cost 
$48.00 — an increase of $9.00. 

It was planned that fatigue uni- 
forms be deleted to defray the 
additional cost. — 

The average cadet wears three 
pairs of khakis per week at a 
laundry cost of $2.25, while the 
TW's could be worn much longer 
between cleanings and consequent- 
ly the laundry expense would be 

The TW uniform does not shrink 
or fade in laundering as does the 
khaki, and would give the Corps 
a consistently good appearance 
with less individual effort. 

Statistics on laundry costs as 
compiled over the last three years 
indicate the Tropical Worsted 
would be much the same as main- 
tenance cost for the Green Wool 

There is no doubt but that this 
new uniform, as planned, would 
be less expensive, but the biggest 
problem would be the transition 
from khakis to TW's while present 
upperclassmen continued to wear 
the current uniform. 

The alternate method would re- 
quire upperclassmen to purchase 
the new uniform when it was 
issued to freshmen. 

This plan has been neither ap- 
proved nor rejected, but is still 
under consideration. If you are 
interested in doing your part to 
promote this proposal, we welcome 
you to drop a notice of your 
approval in the Bugler box in the 

President and Mrs. Hoag attend- 
ed the 7Sth celebration of the 
founding of Georgia Tech Monday, 
October 7th. Secretary of Defense 
McNamara was the speaker for 
the occasion at which 300 colleges 
had representatives. 

Cou n ci I 

During the Spriac Quarter of 
this year both the faculty and 
students of North Georgia College 
approved the establishment of a 
Student Council on our campus. 

Preparations for the Student 
Council were made during the 
past few weeks in the form of 
nominations of officers, campaigns 
and elections. The following stu- 
dents were nominated as officers 
of the Studnt Council: 

Pratidant - Jerry Ginn, George 
Martin, and Ronald Roper — Vie*- 
Pratidcnr • Douglas Palmer, John 
Shope, and William Starncs — 
S«cr«t*ry • Melody Fowell and 
Sandy Pryor. 

On Wednesday, October 2, 1963, 
the campaign speeches were pre- 
sented at an assembly program. 
A total of 430 votes were cast, and 
Jerry Ginn, John Shope, and Sandy 
Pryor were elected as the Student 
Council Officers. 

It is hoped that the Student 
Council will have a successful 
year and be beneficial in beaer 
communications between the facul- 
ty and students of North Georgia 




After days of stiff competition 
.-ind a few wild shots, the following 
cadets have qualified for the North 
Georgia College Rifle Team. Re- 
turning members are: O. K. 
A'einmeister, team captain; Victor 
Brown, Kenneth Bangs, Joe Hill- 
man, Doug Palmer and James San- 
ders. New members on the team 
include Bill Wheeless, Lewis WU- 
hite, Wright Leaphart and Byard 

\ The first match will be held 
November 9 at Mercer University. 
The folowing week, Nov. 16, the 
team will fire against University 
of Georgia as part of the Uni- 
versity's Homecoming ceremony. 

This year the Coed Rifle Team 
hopes to expand competition by 
firing more shoulder matches 
within a larger radius of the 

Nancy Smith, team captain; Bar- 
bara Miller. Jean Henderson, Lau- 
rie Evans and Rilla Stovall are 
returning members. Peg Miller is 
the first new member this year, to 
fill one of the vacancies on the 
Coed team. 



As everyone knows, our Chow 
Hall has recently been remodeled. 
Not only the dining area, but also 
the kitchen has undergone great 

The old steam table has been 
replaced by a conveyor belt. The 
waiters are now safely en.sconced 
behind a wall and thus protected 
from the vultures that descend 
on their area when the bugle blows.

nated by the reaction which that

People at N.G.C. are so con- 

ditioned to this sound that they 
immediately gravitate toward the 
Chow Hall. Does anyone know how 
much food is prepared for the 
Corps of Cadets? — I do. 

The average daily menu runs 
something like this: 200 lbs. bacon, 
120 doz. eggs, 120 doz. donuts, over 
200 gallons milk, 40 gallons coffee 
(that's breakfast), 375 lbs. of beef, 
350 lbs. potatoes, 200 lbs. of some 
other vegetable, and 40 gallons 
canned fruit. 

Tha* !"«•* give*: ynii a samnle of 
the bulk that the Cadet Corps and 
the young ladies of Lewis Hall 

put away in two meals. 

All the vegetables are delivered 
fresh twice a week, the meat and 
canned goods are all good brajid 
name items, and, contrary to pop- 
ular opinion, there is NO govern- 
ment surplus food served in your 
dining hall. 

To prepare this enormous quanti- 
ty of chow, it takos something like 
10,000 gallons of fuel oil per month. 

As you can see, our three cooks

We have just received word that 
Lt. Gen. Albert Watson has con- 
firmed his acceptance of NGC's 
invitation to attend the DMS re- 
view on October 27th. 

Gen and Mrs. Watson will occu- 
py the Guest-of-Honor position on 
the reviewing stand along with 
Major Kitchens and President 

Gen. Watson graduated from The 
Point in 1930 and <vas assigned to 
field artillery. After steady ad- 
vancement through the years, he 
became the U.S. Commandant and 
Commanding General, U.S. Army, 
Berlin, in May of 1961. 

It is coincidental that while 
serving in this capacity. Gen. Wat- 
son had as his aide. Captain Rew, 
a new instructor in the military 
department here. 

On Feb. 2, 1963, Gen. Watson re- 
placed T.J.H. Trapnell as Com- 
mander of Third U.S. Army with 
headquarters at Ft. McPberson.

Battalion All-Star Game November 9 


Letter to The Editor 

. Now that winter is definitely 
here and we begin to go into that 
inevitible "winter drag," I can't 
help but wish that we had more 
things to arouse excitement and 
student interest. Life here, while 
busy, is anything but interesting; 
in short, it is routine to the point 
of being mundane. 

True, "Don Pascale," "Richard 
III," and "Jose Molina Bailes" all 
have their place but I'm not sure 
it is on the stage at NGC. 

In the past four years, "The 
American Polk Trio" is the only 
entertainment to receive whole- 
hearted student approval. Are our 
performers booked with our enter- 
tainment or that of a few faculty 
members in mind? 

To maintain student interest and 
morale. West Georgia College has 
inaugurated a Fall Festival Week 
on November 16th. Highlight of 
the week is five nights of outstand- 
ing bilancad entertainment to be 
presented on the campus. Popular 
features are both the Atlanta Civic 
Ballet and the Four Freshmen. 

To achieve the same purpose, 
Georgia State is having a hoote- 
nanny with the Journeymen and 
the father of folk music, Glenn 
Yarborough, on November 3rd. 

I also know that Clemson College 
is featuring Julie London on No- 
vember 15 and Lloyd Price on the 
16th, solely for students enter- 

Since all colleges evidently suffer 
from dull winters, why don't we 
fbllow these examples and have 
some popular entertainment for a 

If the above colleges can afford 
it, shouldn't we be able to? 

I believe that the presentation of 
some assemblies that our students 
could enjoy would sharply reduce 
such vandalism as painting the re- 
treat howitzer. 

We only do this because there 
is nothing else around to arouse 
interest and excitement. 

For the first time in the history 
of our school, the athletes of 
N.G.C. will have a chance to dis- 
play their ability to the public. 

It has been remarked that "NGC 
could have quite a football team 
were it not for company sports." 
— Now we have a cliance to prove 
it. Yes, NGC is finally going off 
campus to play a football game. 

Saturday, November 9, the 1st 
Batallion All-Stars will face the 
2nd Batallion All-Stars in the J. P. 
King Memorial Stadium beside 
Lumpkin County High School. 

The N. Ga. Officers Club will 
sponsor the contest, slated to be- 
gin at 7:30 p. m. 

Much preparation has gone into 
the event including publicity post- 
ers being placed in business estab- 
lishments of Dahlonega and down- 
town Gainesville; three cadets will 
be interviewed by Wesley Early 
over WGGA's program, "Dateline 
Dahlonega" November 6, 7 and 8. 

Tickets are being sold in Gaines- 
ville and Dahlonega at the follow- 
ing prices: Students, 50c; Adults, 
$1.00. The Officers Club will use 
the money to finance the Sweet- 
heart Ball, set for November 23rd. 

Many half-time attractions are 
featured, including an 84-piece 
military band, the Blue Ridge 
Rifles and five baton-twirling 
majorettes — Jo Beth Maret, Etta 
Rhodes, Ouida Kay Brown, and 
two others, Sharon Bryant and 
Nancy Prewitt, who will twirl fire 

Transportation for N.G.C. stu- 
dents will be provided from the 
campus tD the game by N.G.C.'s 
Officers Club. 

We believe that this significant 
event is another milestone for our 
school. This program will show 
the public some of our abilities 
that do not center anound the mili- 

It would be an opportune time 
for all of us to support our school, 
especially the boys playing. 

The players roster is as follows: 


Bill Alford 
John Renfroe 
Doug Berry 
Jiohn Branch 
Larry Crawford 
Larry Doss 
John Flournoy 

- Trophy for ROTC Groduote - 

Secretary of the Army Cyrus Vance accepts honorary ROTC 
perpetual trophy from C. Harper Bubaker, vice president of the 
group executive, Hughes Aircraft Company. The trophy will be 
presented annually by the Department of the Army to the outstanding 
Reserve Officers Training Corps student selected from the graduating 
classes of 247 colleges and universities. 

Approximately eighty-five per cent of the second lieutenants on 
active duty are from the ROTC program and 91 Army general officers 
are from ROTC. 

The hand-crafted bronze eagle, weighing more than 100 pounds, 
will bear the recipient's name and will be displayed for one year at 
his school. The eagle clutches the arrows and oak leaves of tradition, 
while standing astride a book symbolizing higher learning.

NGC Drama Club Goes ''Hitchcocr-Like 
In Plays to be Presented Nov. 19, 20 

On the nights oM^Iovember 19 & 20, three one-act plays will be presented 
in the auditofiiitfi of tie Cafeteria. The Drama Club, under the direction 
of Mr^m^Jon, will be the host — and the members promise to make the 
evenings entertaining. 

"Golden Slippers" by Jean Mizer takes place on July 15, 1963, in the 
office of Ann Todd, business tycoon. The plot evolves around Ann's conver- 
sation with her fiancee who has " 

been dead for 21 years. The 
characters are: Alice Parro t, Miss 
Morgan the secretary; Vict/oria 
Parrish, Maggie the maid; Judy 
Bcasley, Ann Todd; and Ladd King, 
Joe, the returned lover. 

"Tiny Closet" by Wilma Inge is 
a story of a peculiar boarder, Mr. 
Newboldt, in a midwestern city. 

Why he keeps his closet always 
locked is too great a strain on the 
curiosity of his landlady and her 
friend, so they decide to investi- 
ga e the mystery — a fatal mis- 

The character of Mr. Newboldt 
is portrayed by James Roper; the 
landlady, Mrs. Crosby, is played 
by Renee Brooks, and Mrs. Herge- 

sheimer. the friend, is Judy Brown. 

"Which is the Way >»-B»»ton" 
is another "Hitchcock"-type. In 
this play an unseen ghost is actual- 
ly the main figure. 

He could be called a messenger 
of death. The two couples troubled 
by this unwelcome guest are John 
and Martha, played by Lucein 
keller and Anne Biskey; and Chris 
and Mary, played by George Gais- 
sert and Deborah l.«ach. 

These are the first of many 
plays the Drama Club hopes to 
produce this year. Everyone is 
c-Drdially invited to attend the per- 
formances, which begin at 8 p. m. 
each of the evenings. 

So You Think You've Got It Tough? 

Among the green uniforms and shiny hat bills walks a noticeable 
student — dressed in civies. This is Mr. Harry Hoffman, father of seven 
children, college student, and data analyst at Lockheed. 

He's a little older than the average cadet, but he's not ready to sit 
back and take it easy yet. 

His daily schedule is a rather busy one. He drives twenty-three miles 
from Dawsonville to Dahlonega each morning. His first class is German 
at 9 o'clock — then math — and physics is last. 

According to hours, Mr. Hoffman is a sophomore, though this is his 
first quarter at North Georgia. 

When he gets out of physics at 12 o'clock, he leaves for work at 
Dawsonville. At 1 o'clock he starts his job at Lockheed, where he is a data 

Mr. Hoffman was formerly a meteorologist and used to broadcast the 
weather report for this area of Georgia. He works an eight-hour shift, and 
gets off work at nine. Then all he has to do is homework in German, math, 
and physics. 

On Wednesday night a light can be seen in the physics lab, where he 
works on his experiments from five to eight. Mr. Hoffman is majoring in 
physics and working toward his doctorate. 

North Georgia College - Past and Present 

This is the second of a series of 
articles on North Georgia College 
— its customs, traditions, and 
history. This article deals with the 
College buildings and campus. 

The site upon which N.G.C. 
stands today used to be, as most 
of you know, and old Government 

On April 20, 1871, a bill was 
passed in Congress that authorized 
the Secretary of the Treasury to 
present the North Georgia Agri- 
cultural College board of trustees 
the "building known as the United 
States branch mint at Dahlonega, 
and the ten acres of land connected 
there with." Thus on January 6, 
1873, the doors were thrown open 
with the invitation "Whosoever 
will, may come." 

The old mint building with its 
twenty-seven rooms was used for 
classrooms and to house the first 
president of N.G.A.C. 

When it burned December 19, 
1878, arrangements were made to 
continue the classes in the old 
Academy, the court house, and the 
Baptist and Methodist churches. 

Trips Abroad . . , 

A well-traveled man is a well- 
rounded man. We at North Georgia 
College are fortunate to have on 
the leaching staff this quarter two 
sterling examples of this statement 

— Both Dr. Roberts and Dr. 
Engerrand traveled abroad this 

The Fulbright Fellowship, spon- 
sored by the State Department of 
the United States Government, fi- 
nanced Dr. Robert's trip to the 
Oriental countries of Japan and 
China. After three days in Wash- 
ington, Dr. Roberts flew to Japan 
for a week; then on to Tunghai 
University in Taiwan where he be- 
gan his studies along with 22 other 
college professors. 

Dr. Roberts studied Chinese 
history, Chinese literature, Chinese 
Art history, and Chinese society. 
After seven weeks of Oriental 
education and interesting field 
trips (one of which included an 
audience with President Chiang 
Kai-shek), Dr. Roberts visited Hong 
Kong for three days, which was 
his last stop before returning to 
the United States. 

Dr. Roberts believes that by 
taking this trip he will be able to 
better understand what he reads 
in textbooks, and that he will be 
able to get a better explanation 
across to his students now that he 
has seen the conditions about 
which he teaches. 

Dr. Engerrand, his wife and three 
young Engerrands left last June 
12 for a two-month trip to Europe. 

Dr. Engerrand was born in 
Belgium, but considers himself 
French, his father's nationality. 

This was his first time home 
since his departure at about the 
age of thirteen. 

The Engerrand family tourecf in 
approximately nine different coun- 
tries — the main ones heinit 

A mass meeting was held the 
day before Christmas and a com- 
mittee was set up to make sure 
the college would continue. 

A new building. Price Memorial, 
was started June 13, 1879, and was 
completely finished by 1889. 

The College, during its develop- 
ment, had used a variety of 
buildings — both on the present- 
day campus and in the town of 


In 1932 there were nine build- 
ings. There was Price Memori^ 
and a science building that is 
known today as the Academic 

Captain J. A. Bostwick gave two 
gold mines to the school. When 
these were sold, part of the money 
was used to build a new structure 
to provide for the growing number 
of college students. This building, 
which stood where the library is 
today, burned September 20, 1912. 

A dorm was also erected for 
women in 1901, but it was later 
turned into a boys' dorm and to- 
day is known as the Band House. 
Another new dorm was erected in 
1903 to provide living quarters for

- The History of Christmas Gifts 

As you take your Christmas decorations out of storage each

Some Christmas customs are very old — dating back even 
Christianity itself. Others are surprisingly recent. Christmas can 
instance, got started in the middle of tihe 19th century. 

The first Christmas tree has I money to the neerty 
been ascribed to an 8th-cenlury 
German monk named Boniface, 
who wished to replace sacrifices 
to Odin's sacred oak wiCh the 
custom of adorning a fir tree in 
tribute to the Christ Child. 

The word "carol" means "to 
dance in a ring." The person who 
popularized caroling was St. 
Francis of Assisi — the same s; 
who organized the creohe 
sacred part of Christmas. In the 
I3th century, St. Francis' creche 
was made of real people 
animals. When peasant;s_-ixavel?

A probleni whioh has confronted students attending N G C, is. why 
aren't we allowed tiphl privil«g«s aftpr ?40r> hourti. I»- i» our undtr^tanding 
that this privilege was taken away from cadets due to excessive commotion 
m the dormitories after 2400 hours. 

North Georgia College is an established part of the University System 
of Georgia. However, we are a coe.i militjry colleije. but we are also a 
member of tt'ie University System and as su^h should we bo compared 
exclusively with such schools as West Pjint. V.M.I.. or The Citadel? Otlier 
members of the University System have no restrictions on light, so why 
should we not be afforded this privilege? 

The coeds at N.G.C. have late light privileges. The grades of the girls 
as a whole are better Dlian tiliose of the cadets. Are the girls smarter than 
the boys or could it be the fact thai t?iey have more privileged time for 

A determined student is gointj to study even if it is against the rules. 
Why should he be made to break regulations and suffer the consequences, 
when he could be in his room in an atmosphere conducive to study? 

Since the academic standar:is have been raised, it is necessary for 
ti'ie student to spend more time on his studies The a'^tivities involved at 
N.GC. require time that could be used as study time. Therefore a feasible 
solution to this time problem wuuld be and extension of study time, i.e.. 
unlimited late lights. 

Why can not this student body be used to determine if late lights 
will be abused? 




It IS surprising to discover tlhat the students at a highly noted academic 
college iuch ai N.GjG are "ignorant, uncultured, ill-mannered boors" (rude, 
ill-mannered, clown^h countrymen). Does not tnis statement degrade the 
admissions conmiiltee of NG C7 Are not entrants into N C, C qualified 
mentally and capable of education*' If so. the above classificaion is mis- 

The students desire cultural entertainment but resist and will probably 
continue to resist FORCED second-<]uality attempts, N.G C needs to progress 
to at least Phe 20th century, while other colleges are nearing the 21st. 

Quality concerts and ballets are desirable to the students hut n^t under 
the conditions by which they must be viewed. 

Culture is formed from within; not forced from wishout. 

Not only do we desire culture; but culture throu^jh entertainment, 

Billy Butterfield and o.ieap ballets WERE great — but time marches on.

Student Council | 

This year for Bhe first lime. 
North Georgia College is fortunate 
to have a very efficient, conscien- 
tious student council in operation. 
The council consists of President 
Jerry Ginn. Vice-President John 
Shope, Secretary Treasurer Sandi 
Pryor. two representatives each 
fom D'.ie sophamore, junior and 
senior classes, and a faculty ad- 
visor. Serving as a.lvisor this year 
is Coach Jim Olte. who has done 
A--marv(>louft -job nf ht>l|>itig — and-- 
coope:ating with the council mem- 

Indeed, t.iis group of people, 
having two regular meetings a 
month, has really taken hold of 
flings, and it has already started 
compiling a list of accomplish- 
ments. Any student may take a 
motion to his class representative 
to have it brouj^it before the coun- 
cil, and some have taken advantage 
of this privilege. Six primary 
motions have been brought before 
the council during Fall Quarter; 
one has been passe.'l. and tiae other 
five are still being considered. 

The motion which has been 
passed allows senior girls to slay 
out until eleven o'clock on week 
nights and until twelve o'clock on 
Saturday nights. Miss Donovan and 
Dean Young were very cooperative 
toward the council on this matter. 
.Anrither mat ion which was 
brou.;>'it up b.< lh(! NftC CUil) would

inle'ft'rcs with studyin? for finals, 
required lo devote hours of their 
time toward preparing for the 
dance, and all tiiis work leaves 
little or no tiine to prepare for 
-final examinations 

The Council is working diligent- 
ly toward keeping the library open 
on weekends. Tl'.ere arc many diffi- 
culties to overcame before this can 
take effect, but the Council feels 
the motion is well worth working 

One of the motions n iW before 
t:ic Council is not generally known 
and will be kept rather quiet until 
after Christmas vacation. Jerry 
would not disclose any facts ex- 
cept that it is an important m.::tion. 
and that il will have a noted effect 
on Norh Georgia College, 

The Council asks us to tell all 
students that entertainment for 
parties can be arranged through the 
Council. Any orgmization on cam- 
pus w!:o wants lo hire a b.^-d for 
any occasion is asked lo consult the 
Student Council Bands from many

Jobs In the Future 

Are you still undecided about 
your vocation'' Want to know what 
fields look the brightest? An up 
to-date guide to career opportuni- 
ties in the U.S. has just been 
issued by the Federal Government 
The new "Occupational Outlook 
Handbook" covers 700 occupations 
and all major industries. Some 
meaningful findings of this sum- 
mary are: 

— The best paying careers call 
for a college degree, virtually 
without exception An advanced 
degree is often required, and it 

I boosts an individual's starting 
salary by several thousand dollars 

— Students should delay special- 
izing as long as is practical in 
their individual cases. The reason: 
Careers are changing fast under 
the impact of new knowledge. The 
career you want to follow 10 years 
from now may not yet exist, 

— Of all professions, engineer 
ing and science are still tops in 
the field, but all professions are 

— Service fields offer the widest 
range of jobs and the best pros- 
pects for increasing numbers of 
openings. The second fastest ex 
panding industry is construction. 
Third is government. 
Engineers — This is still the most 

promising major field, for those 
wiih ability and thorough training. 
* collc;^c degree is required and 
will take five years stud)' in many 
good engineering schools. Advjnced 
degrees are especially valuable. 
Best prospects appear to be in 
electrical, aeronautical, ceramic 
and chemical engineering. 

Beginning salaries for these with 
a bachelor degree and no ex- 
perience average $6,925, A masters 
degree can add $1500 to that 
amount. An engineer with a doc- 
tors degree may start now at 
between $9,700 and $12,500 a year. 
Scientists — prospects are be.^t for 

the individual who has a doctors 
degree in his specialty, which will 
take a minimum of seven years. 

Chemistry is Ihc largest field so 
far. Starting salaries now average 
S(i.300 for the person witKi a bache- 
__ lors degree. $7,400 with a masters 
degree, and about $10,200 with a 
Ph.D. Physics still is expimding 
fast with an increasing array of 
specialties. New physicists with a 
Ph.D, may expect to earn from 
$7,500 to $15,000 at the start. 
Mathematicians — Mathematicians 

with a doctorate will be in big 
demand in the period to come and 
starting salaries will range up to 
Technicians — One of the fastest 

growing career areas, technician 
occupations, usually takes less 
training academically and covers 
a wide variety of scientific and 
engineering fields. 

To succeed here, the individual 
needs mechanical aptitude and 
specialized training, taking one, 
two. or three years. Earnings may 
vary widely, start typically be- 
tween $3,700 and $5,700. rise to an 
average of $6,500 after five years 
of experience. 

Spiritual Emphasis Week 

North Georiga College will be 
engaged in a Religious Emphasis 
week beginning Monday, January 
23 and ending on Thursday. 

During the week we will be 
especially honored witii the guid- 
ance of the Rev William M Holt, 
who will speak on many subjects 
religiously connected with college 
life Rev. Mr Holt, a frequent 
speaker on college campuses, will 
also be present at many of the 
varied religious progarms through' 
out the week in order that anyone 

Teachers — No olher prafcssinn 

offers so many chances for 
women al this time. The minimum 
requirement is a college degree. 

Classroom teachers are better 
paid than ever before. Average 
salary for teachers in public ele- 
mentary schools is S5,5f)0 For 
public secondary schools, it is 
S5.995. For four year colleges and 
universities, U is S7.680. Profes- 
sors usually earn $10,000 or more 
Physicians — Opportunities in this 

field are still excellent as a short- 
age of doctors presists. The pay 
remains highest of any piofession. 

Net income of physicians in 
group practice averages S22.G07. 
Individual incomes range up to 

But the training period is \oiv-', 
and getting longer. Most medical 
schools todiiy require three years 
of college education for admisison; 
some require four. Medical school 
training takes an additional four 
years. Hospital internship calls far 
another year or two. To qualify 
as a specialist, the individual must 
also spend two to four years in 
advanced hospital training. Total: 
10 to 14 years. 
Nurses — This field is second only 

to leaching in the number of 
professional openings for women. 
There is an especial demand for 
nurses with graduate training to 
fill positions as administraUirs. 
teachers and public health nur.scs. 

Basic training today calls for a 
good high school record plus three 
years in nursing school. Pay varies. 
General duty nurses in nonfederal 
hospitals average $3,900. But 
Veterans Administration starts its 
graduate nurses at $5,035 anrl pro- 
vides raises later. 
Purchasing Agents — More and 

more college trained buyer.s are 
being sought by business firms. 
Demand is particularly high for 
graduates with a background in 
engineering and science, to fill jobs 
in firms that ntanufacture complex 

Beginning pay in large firms 
averages $5,500 Experienced pur- 
chasing agents earn from $8,400 
to $15,300, depending on Ihe size 
of the company. Top purchasing 
agents may earn $50,000. 
Artists, Musicians, Actors — These 

fields are overcrowded now. 
Openings are very hard to find 
and pay is usually low. Employ 
nient is often sporadic. Profession- 
al careers arc short. Overcrowding 
is expected to presist. 

who desires to do so may speak to 
him on matters other than that 
would concern the entire student 

Also during this week, there will 
be presented several programs at 
which Piesident Hoag and other 
facult,\' members will address the 
interested cadets or co-eds on 
various aspects of campus religious 

Everyone is urged to atlend as 
many of these gatherings and 
programs as possible 

Lawyers — Graduates of well 
known schools have no trouble 
these days in gelling positions 
with big law firms or corporations. 
Others often have trouble finding 
salaried positions in law Three- 
fourths of all lawyers are in pri 
vate practice. Their incomes v.iry 
with location and practice. Best 
opportunities are in suburbs or 
small towns. 

It takes six years of full-time 
study after high school to pass the 
bar examination. The usual prepar- 
ation is three years of college 
followed by three of law school 
Specialization takes longer Be- 
ginning lawyers may make little 
more than their expenses for 
several years, if in private prac- 
tice. Best opening pay is with 

i^arge law firms or~tTic Federal 
Government, which starts attorneys 
at from S4,540 to S6.B75 Women 
still comprise less than three per 
ceiu ol this profession. 
Librarians — A nationwide short- 
age of trained librarians is re 
ported. To qualify, the individual 
normally needs four years of col 
lege plus a year of specialized 
library training. Library school 
graduates get an average starting 
salary of S5.3(i5, while specialists 
with extensive training earn up to 
$15,000 or more. Most librarians 
are still women. 

Secretarial Workers — The job 
outlouk is excellent for years 
ahead, particularly for secretaries 
and stenographers with more than 
high-schood training. Of nearly two 
million people in this field, 95'?; 
are women. 

Pay varies with skills and edu- 
cation. The average weekly earn- 
ings of junior typists are $63.50; 

senior typists, $75.50; general 
stenographers, $75.50; senior steno- 
graphers. S87 00: secretaries. $94.00 
Salesmen — B\ 1975. probably one 

million more salesmen will he 
adde.l. As a career, prospects vary 
wit!i the industry. Manufjcturers" 
.salesmen will find openings plenti- 
ful. Salaries v. ill be highest in 
engineering saf.s. 
Government Workers — Careers 

in the Federal (rovernment cover 
a wide range with the long run 
trend upward About 70'^ of open- 
ings are for whitecollar workers. 
Pay is higher than in private in- 
dustry or routine fields, lower in 
more professional fields The big 
advantage: Job security under the 
civil service system.

(IN KEEPING with our policy of making the BUGLER a college 
newspaper instead of a student newspaper, the editor contacted Dean Voung, 
Captain Hausc and Major Kitchens to see if they would care to make a 
reply to our last issue, which carried a letter protesting late light restrictions. 
Here is the result of an interview with Major Kitchens); 

Light restrictions are but one of the many inconveniences inherent to 
our program. Having to arise early, attend formations and maintain a certain 
order in your lives all have one common aim and this is not the harassment 
of the individual but the instillation of a set of habits — habits to live by. 
All these "pointless" requirements finally integrate to form a way of life — 
a military way of life A person who can unconsciously yet effectively 
organize his work around routine restrictions is our goal. You may complain 
that these restrictions are illogical and unreasonable. Nothing is more 
illogical and unreasonable than that for which we are preparing you; War. 
In a previous letter, our institution's restrictions were compared to West 
Point and other military schools If students want features found at other 
schools, why don't they go to colleges that can satisfy their wants'' 

What Is Happiness? 

Happiness is finding someone you like in the lobby or not getting 
"stuck" on a blind date. 

Happiness is lots of meat on the spaghetti. 

Happiness is classes . . . after they're over. 

Happiness is walking in the snow with your sweetheart. 

Happiness is a Wednesday morning without a dust inspection. 

Happiness is a letter from home . . , better still, a package. 

Happiness is praying and knowing you're being heard. 

Happiness is hearing that drill for today has been cancelled and 
inclement weather classes will not bt held 

Happiness Is OTlcntlUlglo one peisuii and one tiling to another 

(Bearing this in mind, we ask you to submit your happiness thougihts 
to us. Some of the best ones will be added to our collection. Oh yes. if 
you've decided what constitutes security, tell us that loo). 


The Officers Club h«s announced 
that the Sweetheart Bsll will defi- 
nitely be held on the night of

North Georgia College Tact Board 

According to the Colloge catalog, "the immediate supervision of discip- 
line within the Corps of Cadets rests with the Tactical Board, of which the 
PMS IS chairman and the officers of the Military Department are members. 
This board of officers applies the regulations approved by the faculty, and 
it is empowered to refer serious cases to the faculty committee on discip- 
line for final action." 

This means tihat the "tact" board 
is an organ of the College Military 
Department designed to carry out 
and enforce the regulations as 
stated in the Blue Book 

According to Army definition a 
board can be set up to do most 
anylhing. It can investigate, re 
view, etc, but it only makes 
recommendations as to what ought 
to be done. The Tactical Board 
therefore may only make a recom- 
mendation as to the validity of the 
charge. If the Blue Book was com- 
pletely clear on its stated rules and 
regulations there would be no need 
for such a board 

The members of the board con- 
sist of Cie PMS as chairman, the 
assistant PMS's, the Commandant 
representing the College, and the 
Cadet Commander representing the 
Corps of Cadets. A person's plea 
is heard by these men and a recom- 
mendailion is made. 

A cadet may appeal to the Board 
or he may be called before the 
Board to answer for some serious 
violation The cadet may speak on 
his own behalf or he can use wit- 
nesses Both sides of the story are 
heard and a decision reached If 
the violation is of a serious nature, 
it may be referred to faculty com 
mittee on discipline for final 

A member of the board can also 
call for a review if he feels that 
the cadet may have been overly 
punished Therefore rhe Tactical 
Board is a body set up to help 
the cadet by reviewing his of- 
fense and determining if the 
punishment is too great. 

The most important function of 
the Board is the review of the 
Blue Book. Every summer it is 
gone over and changed or modi- 
fied to suit Ihe conditions at NGC. 
An example of this is the case 
where it was found that holding 
hands carried more demerits than 
disrespect to the flag. Needless to 
say this condition was changed. 

Major Kitchen, whom your re- 
porter interviewed, stated that for 
about the past three years he has 
been trying to get the Officers 
Club to make recommendations 
P'etaining to the Blue Book. His 
basis for this attempt was that 
after four years one should know 
what should be changed. 

As I have tried to show the 
Tactfcal Board is not a court to 
dispatch justice, but a review or 
appeal organization to which a 
cadet, if he feels he has been un- 
justly punished, may request a 
review of his offense 

- Baseball at North Georgia College - 

The North Georgia College baseball team opened its preseason practice 
session the first week in February. There were about 40 cadets trying out 
for the team when practice began, and now the squad has been cut to 25 
players. About half of these men are returning from the 1963 team and the 
remaining players are the first year men 

The North Georgia College club has been working hard and consistent 
in preparation of the new season which will open on March 16th and 17th 
with a two game series against St. Andrews Presbyterian College in 
Laurinburg, North Carolina. On Wednesday, March 18. North Georgia College 
will play Pfeiffer College at Pfeiffer. The team will travel to Due West, 
South Carolina on Thursday, March 19, and will use this day to rest and 
practice in preparation for a two-game series with Erskine — one game to 
be played Friday, and the other, Saturday 

The first week of the 1964 season will be a supreme test of the cadet's 
ability since the team will face three of the top contenders for the NAIA 
Championship. The North Georgia College baseball team will be built around 
a strong nucleus of 10 returning letlermen of which four are pitchers The 
first home game of the season will be played on Tuesday, March 24, against 
Piedmont College of Demorest.

What are you thinking about?" 

North Ga. College 
Players Present: 

Congratulaitions to the N.G.C. 
Dramatics Club on their fine per- 
formance of Clarence Day's "Life 
With Father." 

Lucien Keller played the lead 
role of Father with Renee Brooks 
playing .Mother. They both did a 
splendid job and are good examples 
of the talent that can be found 
at North Georgia College. 

"Life With Father" took place in 
New York in the 1880's and is a 
comedy dealing wi:.h everyday 
events that happen to a successful 
businessman at home. Their chil- 
dren, played by Kim McEntyre, 
Roddy Lane. Johnny Roberts and 
Alan Maloy, are always up to 
something, whether it is trying to 
impress a friend of Aunt Cora's, 
Lucia Ramey, or trying to earn 
money for a new bicycle by sel 
ling Dr. Bartlett's Beneficent Balm. 
Father's spiritual life is constant- 
ly being worried about by Mother, 
so Dr. Lloyd, Vance Sorrells, is in- 
vited over frequently to try to 
save him, spiritually. 

The whole cast and crew put 
forth tremendous effort and made 
this their best production yet. We 
are eagerly looking forward to 
their next production . 

Special congratulations are in 
line for Mr Simpson, who did a 
fine job of directing, and to Mac 
Irwin, whose piano playing at the 
intermission was enjoyed by all. 

P. M.S. 

The following is a corrected state- 
ment from Major Kitchen on the 
question of late lights for the 
Corps of Cadets, 

Students or others who advo- 
cate extreme late lights twe al- 
ready have lights from 2300 to 
24001 do not know wha^ they are 
talking about Theiy are apparently 
protesting for the sake of pro- 
testing. Our standard is thad every- 
one get seven or eight hours sleep 
Everyone must be up at 0600. and 
it is desirable not to have students 
sleeping in class. It is also de 
sirable not to have students sleep- 
ing in the afternoon only Ao want 
to stay up until 0200 the next 
morning studying Anyone who 
stays up past midnight for several 
nights is not studying nor is he 
doing his best work. A clear mind 
is an asset to this intellectual 
activity called learning. Although 
some refuse to believe it, the pur- 
pose of lights out is not to save 

The only reason so far given for 
late lights is insufficient time for 
studying. If a person cannot get 
all his studying done during fthe 
week (including the week-end), 
then I agree that there is some- 
thing wron.g with the system, but 
It has nothing to do with lights- 
out. We should have a better bal- 
anced program (academic, physical, 
social, and moral) than that.

to sign the bill at the Dixie, And when you're at the dorm door, after a 
date, don't let him gel away without a 60 second smack on his lips even if 
he does seem to object that your grabbing him knocked his hat off. He'll 
appreciate your obvious affection. 

Secondly, boys like to find in a girl ihp qu.ilily of consideration. Help 
him at all times whether he needs it or not. Surprise him at times by 
calling him and asking him to lei you trent him to a steak supper since 
you know he is broke Offer to do his hamework for him since you make 
better grades. Tell him that if he comes to see you free week end he can 
use your new car since his is so old and out dated. There are a number 
of orthcr things you could do lo make his day brig'iler .hist remember he 
appreciates thoughtfulness. 

You must share his interests. Pry until ynu can find out what they are. 
and then study, study, study until you can dLscuss each interest intelligently. 
For instance, he able to discuss intelligently the stralegic moves of various 
officers of World War II — they love tn talk military' If you go with a 
bookworm, be able lo converse on Lady Chatterly's Lover and Ulysses (you 
only need lo know the good parts that's all he'll know) If he doesn't 

bring the subject up, you bring it up. He will appreciate your intellectual 

You should know a few basic tacts about politics in case an occasion 
arises that you need lo shine in this field of discussion Keep in mind, for 
example, that Goldwaler is a conservative Republican, Johnson is a liberal 
Democrait, and Richard Russell should be presidetvt, T'nat should be suf- 

Follow these suggestions closely, girls, and the cadel you want will 
count cadence right to your door step. 

One word of caution — it you injure his male pride, you're lost Be 
subtle in your pursuit; let him think he's chasing you.

- Bugler Support — 

The Cadet Buglei- is an organ of and liy the STl'DKNTS 
of North Georgia College. This newspapei- cannot function if tlie 
students do not support it. 

Instead of reading it and turning to your buddy to criticize 
— tell one of the staff members your criticism AND your 
suggestion for Improvement; or if you are shy. write your 
suggestion down and drop it in the Bugler Box. Also, we canno't 
be everywhere all the time, so if there is something going on 
or someone receives an award or if your organization needs a 
little free publicity, see an.\ one of us or pui your item In the 
Bugler Box. 

Speaking of the Bugler box, ever\' time we look into it all 
we can find is trash — paper cups, napkins, cigarette butts, 
old posters, etc If there are not enough trash receptacles or 
ash tray.; in the Canteen, we will .speak to .\ir. Kagan about 
getting a few more. 

We on the staff are students also, and we need YOU behiiiiJ 
the paper to make it as good as you would like It to be 

PMS Corner — 

The word discipline' has many different meanings. Basicall; 
in the military it means doing^ what you know to be right 
wthout being told to do it or watched to see that it is done 
This intangible state results from good leadership and training 
Discipline is what keeps a man on the job under pressure whet 
the "sma'-f " thing to do would be to get out from under thi: 
pressure and save himself This training can only be effective 
if the individual believes in what he is doing and respond: 
willingly. It is doubtful that a person can he truly disciplined 
in this sense, against his will. 

We Americans live In a relatively unreglmented society 
Years ago pioneers found litfle difference between their dail; 
struggle for survival and fightini; for survival. In recent times 
farm boys were hardy individuals accustomed to a rugged 
disciplined existence. Today. I he demand is for more Individua 
freedom, while our society \ eai'ns for more laws and regimen 
tation to protect Its freedoms. A goorl Indication of our state o 
discipline is the incieasc in the ciinic rate, but an even bcttei 
one is the driving (automobile i habits of (uir people. Here 
person can demonstrate his lack of concern for his fellow maiH 
in many ways without violating a law, and yet we have just abou 
every law possible concerning driving. A person either practiceilf 
good driving or he doesn't The chances of getting caught an'l 
very small, but on the other hand, we kill each weekend, iij 
Georgia, about a dozen people .-\n(l uc do l!iis all because VtA 
can't follow the rules of the game. 'I 

In spite of all our sophisticated weaponry, the requiremenjl 
for disciplined men is still great. In fact, the tactical phase oi 
battle has changed little. Psychologiciilh', the demands on th« 
Individual may be even greater, bul the foundation upon whicli 
this training is to be placed is lower. Therefore the tialning joll 
will become increasingly more difficult, provided wc do nolj 
lower our standards, which in turn would make our countrU 
less secure. As long as war remains as a method of settlinfllj; 
disputes, we had better be prepared to win it. This is ill 
concern which EVERY .-XMERCIAN should have. WE had betteijl 
take a look at our own discipline and of the society in whicht 
we live. It may be expedient to "let George do it," but whaljfi 
happens when we run out of enough "Georges" to do it !( 

We live in the greatest country in the world and when yoi!" 
are the "chajnp" there is always a challenger around. If youii 
power to defend yourselves is decreased, then the "vultures' 
may take it from you. I0 

Perhaps we at .North Georgia could help out by: 

1. Taking a new look at the big picture of life and oui 
position in it. 

2. Practice the Golden Rule. 

3 Ask nol what our count r\ can do for us, but what wt 

can do for our country. 
4, Take full advantage of our opportunities for learnint 

and training here at N.G.C 


- The SCU Corner - 

Spring IS here, and that annual infection has set in again 
for most of us: we find ourselves wanting to flag the work now 
tliat the sun Is out: but this quarter counts just as much as th( 
l;i,st two did; and If we are going to make II worth while W( 
h.ue got to take our \ilamins of h:ird work and study; or sprint 
lever will claim another victim. 


Freshmen Sponsor Hootenanny

events weie in two 

drill and ceremonies. 

ncy drill. \ team could 

ea possible 50 poin^s for 

each phase. Tropliies were 
awarded to the winners of each 
phase of competition and to the 
learn which had the highest 
■iverall score. North Georgia 
won and received trophies for 
the drill and ceremonies event 
as well as lor total point over- 
ill average. 

The North Georgia College 
'Blue Hidge Rifles" drill team, 
under the leadership of Cadet 
.Mas.ei Sgt. Robert McKenney, 
is composed of men in the 
freshman and sophomore clas- 
ses. Captain Bill Almand and 
SPT Clifford Funk are sponsors 
nf (he organization. 

Coeds and cadets in civilian 
clothes sitting on the floor of 
Memorial Hall created an au- 
thentic hootenanny atmosphere 
at the program presented at 
N.G.C. a few weeks ago. The 
audience's approval of the 
hootenanny was evidenced by 
the response of the students as 
they sang along, clapped, and 
smiled with the folk singers. 
In addition to the professional 
folk groups gathered from col- 
leges all over the state, winners 
of the Freshman Talent Show 

The hootenanny was the first 
attempt at presenting entertain 
ment of this type to the sudent- 
body; and, as a first attempt, 
it was very successful The only 
complaint heard about the three 
hour performance was from 
those who realized that floors 
were indeed made for walking 
— not for sitting. 

The freshman class presented 
the program for the entertain- 
ment of the students and faculty 
and to raise money to be used 
for more entertainment in the 

near future. 

The professional folk singing 
groups were contracted to sing 
from an agency that has sent 
programs all over Georgia, and 
it even has one group that sang 
on the ABC television network's 

The Travelers, a group com- 
posed of Gail Murphy, Emily 
DeLong. Vance Sorrells, and 
Wally Hostetter from N.G.C. 
sang with the professional 
groups and were offered a con- 
tract to continue singing in 
hootenanny programs. Two 
other folk groups from N.G.C. 
sang also; they were The 
Cracksmen — Jimmy Strange, 
George Walton and Charlie 
Bryant; and the Foxtrot Three 
— Jo'cl Whitten, Roy Trugeon 
and Richard Reardon 

An additional attraction to the 
folk-singing program was the 
performance of Mac Irwin, first 
place winner of the talent show, 
who held his audience spell- 
bound as he played two selec- 
tions on the piano.

On Campus 

Dr. C Victor Briscoe, Profes- 
sor of Physics at the University 
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 
N. C, will serve as visiting 
lecturer here on Monday and 
Tuesday, April 6 and 7. 

He will visit under the aus 
pices of the American Associ- 
ation of Physics Teachers and 
the American Institute of Phys- 
ics as part of a broad, nation 
wUle program to stimulate in- 
trrest in physics. The program 
IS now 111 its seventh year and 
is supported by the National 
Science Foundation. 

Dr. Biscoe will give lectures 

hold informal meetings with stu- 
dents, and assist faculty mem- 
bers with curriculum and re- 
•searcn projects. Mr C. M. Yager 
of the physics department is in 
charge of arrangements for Dr. 
Biscoe's visit. 

C. Victor Briscoe was born 

in Abingdon, Virginia: received 
the B.A degree from King Col- 
lege in 1952; the MA. from Rice 
Institute in 1957; and was 
awarded a Magnolia Peti'oleum 
Company fellowship from 1956 
to 1958 when he received the 
PhD in physics from Rice. 

At North Georgia 

Coach Jim Otte's baseball 
squad started its 1964 season 
with a road trip that took them 
to North Carolina to meet 
to North Carolina to meet St 
Andrews and Pfeiffer College 
and to South Carolina to meet 
Erskine. St. Andrews took the 
first game by a 3-2 margin 
Ronnie Creel, Clay Harris and 
Lee Campbell went to the mound 
for North Georgia. The next day 
went just as badly for North 
Georgia; we were dumped 4-3 
Carter Haley, a very promising 
rookie outfielder was the big 
man at the plate. Haley rapped 
a double into deep center field. 

At Pfeiffer College we met a 
well rounded ball club. The 
Cadets dropped the game by a 
score of 115 with Lee Campbell 
going all nine innings. Camp 
bell pitched a fine game. I might 
add that the spunk and fight 
shown by the Cadets against 
what seemed to be an impossible 
situation was something to be 
admired. Campbell and Ricket- 
son were the big men at the 
plate. Campbell rapped a double 
and "Rick" rode one out of the 

The two games to be played 
at Erskine were rained out. 

The '64 squad started off its 

home season with a 6-5 win 
over Piedmont. Clay Harris was 
credited with the win. Clay went 
all nine innings with the bull 
pen being active only once or 
twice. He did an admirable job, 
hut I might add that he was 
well backed by his teammates 
Leon Ricketson, John Branch. 
Carter Haley and Murrey Mon- 
cnef swun.t; the big bats for the 
Cadets. "Rick" and Murre\' 
blasted out doubles, Haley drove 
a 325 footer into the fence and 
John Branch bombed one out of 
the park over the 325 foot 

This season could be a good 
one for the Cadets who are cap- 
tained by Moncrief and co- 
captained by Ricketson and 
Branch. They are backed up by 
a fine pitching staff, composed 
of Strickland. Harris, Creel and 
Campbell. Outstanding perform- 
ances have been rendered by 
veterans Phil Latimer, Larry 
Culbreth and "Buf" Bufford. 
Rookies Ruy Turgeon, Carter 
Haley and Ronnie Kelley have 
also done a fine job. 

Tennis Team 
Loses First Match 

The N. (!. C. tennis team un- 
successfully opened its 1964 
season with a loss to f^rskine 
of Due West, S. C, by a score 
of 63. This loss is blamed by 
Coach Bickley and his team on 
Erskine's superior experience, 
'however, North Georgia should 
have a winning season. 

Returning from last year are 
Dean Anderson, Jerry AJmand, 
Jimmy Harris, J. T. Lawrence, 
G. D. Floyd and Don Felker, 
newly elected captain of the 
team. There are also several 
freshmen and sophomores who 
will lend needed support to the 

N.G.C. will play five home 
matches this year. One of these 
has already been played with 
N.G.C. out-playing LaGrange to 
win 7-2, The remaining home 
matches are with Berry on April 
3, Mercer on April 7. Western 
Carolina on May 1, and KrskiiU' 
on May 4.

Freshmen RepotfSept. 20tli 

Another academic year will begin on 20 September 1964. All 
'reshmen will report on that date. A suggested time of arrival has 
)een sent to all students who will report on the 20th. Only so many 
:an be processed each hour and the students living closest to 
)ahlonega have been asked to report first. Those freshmen farth- 
!st from school will report later in the day. Upon arrival, all Cadets 
irill report to Memorial Hall. From Memorial Hall, guides will 
ake them to their dormitories for room assignment and from there 
the uniform issuing point. Young ladies will report to Lewis 
{all and be taken care of there. 

Cadets should not bring an 
bundance of civilian clothes 
ecause they will not have a 
iance to wear them. A suit 
sports coat and slacks, one 
ress shirt, and one sport shirt 
■ill be more than sufficient for 
ill quarter. If the cadet feels 
lat he needs more civilian 
othes than that, he can have 
lem sent to him or bring them 
p later. 

All cadets should bring a 
Jir of plain toed black low 
larter shoes with them when 
ey report. All items in the 
!sk drawers must be kept in 
gar boxes. There is always a 
ortage of cigar boxes in Dah- 
nega so it would be a good 
ea to bring one or two along, 
iron and ironing board are 
sential. Not many people can 
ford a large laundry bill and 

doesn't take long to press a 
liform so that it will look 
arp for another day or two. 
lother expense many people 
e not looking for is the sew- 
g shops. Most of the issued 
liforms are baggy in a few 
rategic places and nearly all 

cadets have their uniforms 

For the first few weeks you 
will wish that you were any 
place besides North Georgia 
College, but, xt you remain 
after the first few weeks, you 
will adjust rapidly to our mili- 
tary system. Good luck to you 


Within seven weeks you will be entering North Georgia for the 
first time. You are supposed to come to the campus Sunday, 
September 20 and report either to the Commandant of Cadets, in 
Memorial Hall, or the Dean of Women in Lewis Hall. You will 
receive information on the time of reporting from the Comman- 
dant's Office or the Dean of Women. 

In starting this ninety-second year, you will be a part of 
the largest student body ever to enroll. 

Orientation week, which begin on Sunday evening, September 
20 with a general assembly of all new students, will acquaint you 
with the spiritual, academic, social and physical life on tihe 
campus. The young men entering will also be oriented to the 
military regulations and life of the college. 

Special questions pertaining to orientation week may be 
directed to this office if the communications from the Dean of 
Women and Commandant do not answer these inquiries. 

We look forward to the relationship between you and North 
Georgia College with great satisfaction.

- ^'Welcome'' from The Bugler - 

We, tihe staff of the Caidet Bugler, want to take this opportunity 
to welcome you to North Georgia College. 

In this special edition — being sent only to you freshmen — 
we have included some scenes from around campus and letters 
from our administration. You all have seen N.G.C and would not 
be coming here if you felt that this was not the place for you. 
We hope that these pictures and other information will serve to 
familiarize you even more with N.G.C. than you already are. 

The Cadet Bugler, like you, is just beginning to be a part 
of North Georgia College. We (have had anid are going to have our 
problems as lyou will. 

It is going to be hard on you during the first quarter. In 
addition to finding — like everyone has told you — that college 
is vastly different from high school, you will have to undergo 
military discipline and learn to live with people from everywhere. 

No matter how hard it may become, just remember that it 
gets easier as you give the "system" a chance to become adjusted 
to it. 

A cordial invitation is extended to all of you to visit our 
office (in the basement of Price Memorial) or drop a note in the 
"Bugler Box" from time to time throughout the year, so that we 
might know what you are interested in and what you would like 
to see in the paper.

— PMS Corner — 

On behalf of tihe Arnny Instructor Group at North Georgia 
College I extend you a hearty welcome. I also congratulate you 
on choosing a Military College and becoming a part of the Corps 
of Cadets. I am sure you will find your work here interesting, 
stimulating, challenging, exacting, and at times perhaps laborious 
but rewarding in every sense of the word. 

It is my hope that each of you will make the most of 
the opportunity wliich has come your way and accept the re- 
sponsibility and dhallenge which it entails. 

We in the Military Department are interested in each of you. 
Our objective is to develop your character by means of Military 
training and to regulate your conduct in accordance with well 
proven disciplinary principles. It is our function to provide you 
with a broad basic military education sufficient to qualify you 
as an Officer in the U. S. Army. However, your Military training 
here will serve you well in whatever profession you may choose. 

We look forward to our work with you and feel confident 
that in the future, if not now, you will say that your first year 
at North Georgia College was surely one of the best years of 
your life. 


H. J. ROSS, JR. 

Lt. Colonel, US Army 



Congratulations, girls! You've 
made a wise decision by choos- 
ing North Georgia as "your" 
college! In my opinion, there's 
not a better school anywhere. 
The scenery is beyond compare, 
the locality is handy to many 
recreational areas, tihe teachers 
are well above average, the 
students are friendly, conscien- 
tious, and likable, the dormitory 
and eating facilities are fully 
adequate, and of course the 
men are polite, neat and most 
of all . . . numerous! 

All of the running around 
you are doing now is not but 
one year removed from my 
school experiences, and there- 
fore, I feel I might be able to 
help keep you from making 
some of the mistakes I made. 
In the first place, these rooms 
are SMALL, to put it mildly. 
Don't bring a lot of things that 
aren't absolutely necessary be- 
cause it takes most of the limi- 
ted 3pa<:e just for essentials. If 
you find you have some extra 
room, you can always have 
things sent from home or get 
them on a visit home. 

Something else I didn't realize 
is that the stores in town and 
the canteen here on campus 
sell just about anything you will 
need. So there's no use worrying 
yourself to death over the idea 
of forgetting something. 

The churches here are very 
informal. Don't buy a lot of new 
dresses or suits particularly for 
Church wear because you think 
it necessary. Wait until you get 
here and then buy clothes as 
you need them and as the styles 
change. Another word about 
church going: It is required, 
and it seems the only way to 
get there is to walk. Therefore, 
low heeled shoes might be a 
wise choice since nearly every 
dhurch is located on a hill! 

Bring a dust mop and dust 
cloth if at all possible. You will 
find them very useful tools to 
tackle these forever dirty floors 
and furniture. On the subject 
of things to bring, an umbrella 
is a MUST. The closet space is 
very limited, so keep that in 
mind when you start packing 
your clothes. 

There is a store in the dorm, 
open several times a day, which 
sells candy, soap, shampoo, etc. 

At first, things will seem very 
strange to you. The first few 
weeks might be the hardest, but 
after you aidjust you will learn 
to love this place as each of us 
did. We are looking forward to 
your arrival, and we sincerely 
hope that N.G;C. offers all that 
you expect, and more. 

I feel rather sure that it will. 
— A COED. 

Our Churches 
Welcome You 

Going to college is like going 
to the barber shop: you are not 
quite the same when you leave. 
Your religion will not be quite 
the same either. We hope it 
will be stronger and deeper. 
Up to now you have accepted 
religious truths mostly on the 
authority of your parents and 
teachers. That's life as a teen- 
ager. Now is the time to make 
these religious truths your per- 
sonal convictions. Now is the 
time to find for yourself What 
or Who can give meaning and 
unity to your whole life.

The freshman members of North Georgia College's cadet corps don't stand a chance. 
Maybe you think that's a fatalist's point of view, but I'll bet you won't have any trouble 
finding freshman boys to back up my fatalistic beliefs. From the first Sunday afternoon 
when, after he's sure all the parents have left the building, the poor new cadet's first ser- 
geant moves his recruits into the lobby and says. "Gentlemen, I'm your first sergeant," 
the recruit's life is one of discontent and sometimes utter misery. His physical body is 
tortured to the utmost by the monotonous counting of cadence to which his feet must 
endlessly pound the sod of the drill field: his mind is crowded with thoughts of what 
to do and what not to do, and a myriad of senseless names and numbers known as a 
"poop-sheet" to learn plus the omnipresent thoughts in the back of his mind like "What 
am I doin' here?" His temper is tested to the breaking point when some officer or N.C.O. 
gives him "down the country" for what he considers an insignificant detail, such as for- 
getting to make up his bed one morning or something similar. He is emotionally sound 
if after his indoctrination in the ways of military life and his first dust inspection he 
doesn't cry like a baby or cuss like a sailor. 

But cheer up boys, the worst is yet to come. Seriously, however, don't let the mili- 
tary life get the best of you. Thousands of men have gone on before you and have lived 
through it. It can be done, and we're sure you'll do it. I guess. . . .

New Additions Band to Compete for Honor Company 
To Faculty 

Fourteen new faculty mem- 
bers have appeared at NGC to 
begin the new year with coeds 
and cadets. These instructors 
were recruited from schools all 
over the United States, and they 
received their degrees from col- 
leges and universities all over 
the world. 

The language department re 
ceived the largest percentage of 
the new teachers: Dr. Hollis L. 
Cate, professor and head of the 
English department ; Mrs. Ca- 
mille Colvin, professor of Eng- 
lish; Dr. Isolde Syben and Mr. 
Guy Oliver, professors of Mod- 
ern Languages. Both of the 
Home Economics professors are 
new this year: Mrs. John Ditano, 
head of the Department and 
Miss Frances Hatcher, assistant 
dean of Women. 

Other new instructors include 
Mr. John F. Cooke, physics pro- 
fessor; Dr. Thomas C. Davis, 
professor of chemistry; Mr. A. 
David Franklin, professor of 
music and Director of Band and 
Glee Club; Dr. William G. 
Ledger, professor of Business 
Administration; Mr. Bill B. 
Woody, director of Public Re- 
lations; Mr. J. A. Wilson, pro- 
fessor of Business Administra- 
tion; Dr. William D. Bellamy, 
professor of Psychology. 

There will be a feature arti- 
cle about each of these new 
members of the faculty. 

From Memorial Hal; ideas have become reality this year 
relati.e to intc. mural .jj jrts. Complete sport i<iles have been 
established as SOP. 

However, a new and different kind of standard 
raised: Band Company is in the Honor Company race! 

Cadet Captain Kemp's Band 
men will compete in every 
phase of cadet competition ex- 
cept football. Sanford Hall will 
more than pay the price for 
football during the spring quar- 
ter as outlined by the following 
quote from the athletics SOP: 

"3. It should be noted that 
Band Co. is included in the 
competition for Honor Com- 
pany. The Band will participate 
and obtain a standing for each 
individual event ejfcept foot- 
ball starting Fall Qtr., 1964. The 
points for intramural football 
for the entire brigade will be 
withheld until the standings are 
completed at the end of Spring 
Qtr. Band Co. will receive con- 
structive credit for football 
based on their end of Spring 
Qtr. standing, i.e., if they stand 
3rd at Spring Qtr., cumulative 
standing, they will receive an 
automatic tie for third place 
in football. The points for foot- 
ball for all companies will then 
be added and the final stand- 
ings determined." 

With Band's espirit de corps 
and our baseball schedule stack- 
ed, one can look forward to a 
spirited Honor Company race 
and a first class baseball team 
this year. 

Rifle Team 
Loses to Clemson 

The North Georgia College 
Rifle Team lost it's first match 
of the 64-65 year here October 
2 to Clemson with a sc-!ire of 
1329 to 1288. 

Rifle Team Instructor S/Sgt. 
Williams remained optimistic 
saying, "My team did a fine 
job; especially since they had 
only four days of practice." 
He further noted that NGC's 
score of 1288 was higher than 
any score fired by the 63-64 

Milam was NGC's top shooter, 
firing 263. Others firing were 
Henry S. Abercrombie, Joseph 
Hillman, Byart Irwin, Robert 
McKenney, James McPhail, Nor- 
man Sassner, H. D. Seel and 
Oscar Weinmeister. 

The Cadets' next match will 
be at the University of Georgia 
October 31. 

The ROTC Pay Raise was 
signed into law Saturday, Oct. 
3, 1964 — This will mean an 
increase in pay for all Cadets 
on contract ... 

Complete details will be in 
our next issue.

WASHINGTON — Although 
the United States has never 
lacked a President since George 
Washington was inaugurated, 
20 per cent of the time it has 
lacked a Vice President, the 
Chamber of Commerce of the 
United States reports. 

Since John Adams became the 
first Vice President in 1789, the 
ofifice has been vacant on 16 
occasions. Eight Vice Presidents 
succeeded to the presidency. 
Seven Vice Presidents died in 
office. One Vice President re- 
signed (John C. Calhoun of 
South Carolina in 1832 to enter 
the Senate). 

As Vice Presidents are chosen 
only in the quadrennial nation 
al elections, the office has been 
vacant 38 out of 175 years. 

Many persons are convinced 
that under recent Presidents 
the work of the Vice President 
has become extremely impor 
tant, whereas before it was not. 
Several methods have been sug- 
gested to fill the office when 
it becomes vacant between 
national elections. It has been 
suggested that a new Vice Pres- 
ident be picked by the Pres- 
ident, be picked by Congress, 
or by the Electoral College. 

A coimpromise method that 
seems to have the best chance 
of acceptance would let the 
President nominate a Vice 
President subject to confirm- 
ation by majority votes of the 
House and Senate. 

The Senate Judiciary Commit- 
tee this summer approved a pro- 
posed Constitutional amendment 
which, among orher things, 
would set this compromise 
method as the one to be used 
in filling the Vice Presidency 
between national elections. If 
both the House and Senate ap- 
prove it by two thirds votes and 
three fourths of the states rati- 
fy it, it will become part of the

First, I want to welcome the 
freshmen to North Georgia. I 
sincerely hope your stay here 
is enlightening, if nothing else. 
For those of you who' keep re- 
turning for more. I offer my 
sympathy, and this column. 

It is for those who are willing 
and ready to think through and 
make their own decisions. 

I forsee an outstanding year 
at NGC, because of a new, for- 
ward thinking military staff and 
a maturing student body. The 
Cadet Bugler is pledged to keep 
pace by offering a newspaper 
vastly improved over previous 
editions, v/hich were more or 
less mediocre (mostly more). 

In this column I plan to dis 
cuss topics of interest to think 
ing students. These will include 
many controversial subjects 
co-eds, booze, extremism, teach 
ers, the Military Dept., and the 
admini.'rtration. On the less 
radical side: sports, clothes, 
campus life, etc.

Brass Polishing!! 

Hey you! That's right, you 
reading this article. Ever won 
der how to take care of your 
brass, and make it last a long 
time and still look like new? 

Then wonder no longer, be 
cause here's an article that 
should answer your questions 

To the soldier or cadet who 
would like to keep his brass 
shining like new for many 
years to come, and to those of 
you who have a yen for experi 
mentation, Gardner D. Hiscox 
editor of Henley's Book of Form 
ulas, Processes and Trade Agree 
ments, has written several 
chemical combinations on how 
to polish and clean brass which 
should be of interest to every- 

You may begin with any of 
three formulas for brass polish- 
es: (1) For the first 20 parts of 
sand powdered and levigated 
quartz mixed with 30 parts of 
Paris Red and 50 parts of 
petroleum jelly. 

If you don'^t care for the first 
formula, you may (2) take 50 
parts of emery flour with a 
mixture of 50 parts Paris Red, 
40 parts of Mutton Suet and 40 
parts of Oleic acid. 

For the last combination (3) 
mix 100 parts of levigated 
emery powder with 5 part.s of 
anhydrous, sodium carbonate 
and 20 parts of tallow soap, and 
add the entire mixture to 100 
parts water. 

If you've really been slipping, 
here's a formula (4) for the 
restoration of brass articles: 

The brass is first freed from 
adhering dirt by use of hsi soda 
lye. Next, it is yellowed in a 
mixture of nitric acid, 75 parts, 
100 parts of sulphuric acid, two 
parts of shining lampblack and 
one part of cooking salt, then 
rinsed and polished.

Freedom from Dishonor 

In recent years there have been movements to get North 
Georgia Coilege to adopt an honor code. Such movements have 
always been rejected. The Iragedy of the proposed "honor code" 
is not that it has been rejected, but that such a code was ever 

The Blue Book of Regulations sets forth a strong personal 
code of honor for the Corps of Cadets: "The development of char- 
ac er and integrity in the members of the Corps is a basic objective 
of the Corps and of the college. Since the earliest days of recorded 
histjry the requirement for integrity in the military leader has 
been universally recognized . . . There is a strong element of 
integrity in all vocations, but this trait, which is desirable for 
other.?, is indispensable to the cadet." 

This College is an arm and organ of the United States Govern- 
ment and Army. Where is integrity and honor more necessary 
than in a military school? Ye; looting of cadets' money and person- 
al belongings was commonplace last Spring Quarter. Radios, irons, 
watches and rings were stolen, and more than $40.00 was taken 
from cadets' gym lockers in a single day. 

A former PMS has said that there is a "shadow" hanging over 
North Georgia College — a shadow he felt was due to the £.'. ' .= 
";. ■ .' J - thieves." Last year there was more than theft of 
personal belongings. Three sabres and Sam Brown belts and an 
M-1 rifle were stolen from the Military Department — none were 

Such mass thievery must not be allowed to continue for the 
coming Fall Quarter and 1964-65 school year. All students must 
be alerted to the gravity of the "stealing problem." A cadet who 
does not steal but permits others to do so by failing to rid his 
campus or society of thieves is no less dishonorable than a thief. 
Action by the school and esch individual must move now to stem 
this ever-increasing blight on the moral character of North Georgia

For you male students his will undoubtedly be a most unpleasant 
experience initially. However, as time passes and you become 
better adjusted you will begin to e.x,perience some of the advantages 
of this institution. Here, we of the Cade; Corps are charged with 
more responsibility than any other college students in this state. 
Training discipline, welfare and other aspects Of college and 
military life are tasks which are undertaken by we of the Cadet 

Excepting Georgia Tech, North Georgia has one of the highest 
academic ratings in this state. We are rated an essential military 
school by the Department of the Army. At ROTC canip at Fort 
Bragg, North Carolina this summer, North Georgia College finished 
first in competition with more than 20 schools ranging from 
Massachusetts Ins;i:ute of Technology and Notre Dame to Texas 
and Mississippi. From a summer camp enrollment of more than 
2200, North Georgia produced the first, fourth, and sixth most 
outstanding cadets. 

This year the qualiy and caliber of the cadet officers of 
North Georgia College is higher than ever. This was proven by 
tiie record established at summer camp, and will be demonstrated 
by t'ae job performance of these cadets this year. Everything is 
standing at the ready for the best year this college bas ever en- 
joyed. The officers are the best. The juniors and sophomores are 
ready. We expect the fourth classmen to be the best freshmen 
ever. There should be nothing in our path, and I can see no

On a Sunday night this quar- 
ter the Cadet Corps had a fire 
drill. It seemed strange that 
Lewis Hall did not participate, 
and, on inquiry, no reason could 
be given as to why they did not. 
Also, no indication was given as 
to what their evacuation pro- 
cedure would be. However, there 
was mention of a fire drill plan- 
ned in the near future. 

As the coeds returned from 
church December 6, a rumor 
was spreading that the fire 
alarms would go off at 10:00 
p. m. Was this the scheduled 
fire drill? No. It was a prank. 
All the alarms were broken ex- 
cept the one in the lobby But 
unlike past false alarms, the 
dorm was evacuated. 

Later that night there was a 
dorm meeting held by Miss 
Hatcher in the absence of Miss 
A. D. She warned of the obvious 
danger of such a prank, but 
also commented that it took 
over three minutes for every- 
body to get out and many peo- 
ple would have gotten hurt if 
there had been a fire. She was 
given a round of applause be- 
cause the girls realized that 
Lewis Hall had not had a fire 
drill in the memory of the 
seniors. Being new, Miss Hatcher 
did not know the fire drill pro- 
cedure, much less that no one 
else did either. She is to be 
commended on her handling of 
the situation under these con-

Fall Rec Club 

The North Georgia College 
Rec Clubs — Hippolytans, Mer- 
cureans. Phi Omicrons, and 
Trahlytans — were introduct-d 
to the new Freshmen at the 
of fall quarter by a Skit Nighi. 

Each club performed a short 
skit so that the freshmen could 
associate each one with the 
members already in it and 
choose which they would like 
to join. After each one chose 
the club she liked best, she 
was initiated into it on Rat Day. 

The sports participated in this 
quarter were volleyball and ten- 
nis. There were several weeks 
of practice for volleyball and 
the play-offs began Nov. 9. Each 
club had two teams — a blue 
and a white league — and these 
played each other's team in its 
respective league twice. The 
Hippolytans were first in blue 
league and the Trahlytans in the 
white league. From the other 
teams in each league three play- 
ers were picked to make up an 
all-star team to play the win- 
ners. The Phi Omicrons came 
out first in the singles tennis. 
matches and the Hippolytans 
in the doubles. 

Winter quarter the clubs will 
be competing in basketball and 
badminton and spring quarter 
in Softball, archery, and swim- 
ming. Each club receives so 
many points according to how 
they place in each sport. At the 
end of the year a trophy will be 
given to the club with the most 

Besides competitive sports 
Rec Clubs have breakfasts, coi

The audio-viual department, 
located downstairs in the li- 
brary, may be used by students 
at anytime during library hours. 

Its catalogue of material in- 
cludes 356 record albums which 
range from opera to recordings 
of the late President Kennedy's 
speeches. This collection con- 
tains something of interest to 
all students. Besides the wide 
range of classical and popular 
music, there are language re- 
cords which woult be of great 
help to any language student. 

The study of literature, an- 
cient and modern, would be 
greatly enriched for the student 
who could hear it read. An al- 
bum of Edna St. Vincent Millay's 
poems, read by Judith Ander- 

son, may be found or an album 
of Dylan Thomas reading his 
own pcetr\-. Other albums of 
readings are done by Charles 
Cob'jrn, Robert Frost, Carl Sand- 
burg, Charles Laughton. and 
Basil Rathbone. 

There are film and slide pro- 
jectors for use of teaichers as 
well as two record players and 
three tape recorders for stu- 
dents' us*'. The availability of 
tape recorders will interest 
language and speech students. 

The records are catalogued 
by album name, title of piece, 
and author. They may be 
checked out for use in the li- 
brary only. Mrs. Ragan, head 
of the department, will be glad 
to help. Booths may be used 
by appointment.

Know Your College 

(EDITOR'S NOTE; We have attempted to do this in the past, 
but it did not seem to be well received. A number of people have 
asked us to start on this series again so that they might "know 
their college" better. Student comments are invited, and they 
may be put into the "Bugler oBx" in the Canteen.) 

"The greatest change which 
has taken place over the years 
at North Georgia in the student 
body is the constant and 
demanding desire for more in- 
formation to every area of in- 
terest," were the words spoken 
by our president. Dr. Merritt 
E. Hoag, in an interview on 
December 5. 

Dr. Hoag was born in Pen- 
nsylvania and educated in the 
public schools of Pennsylvania 
and Florida. He holds the B.S. 
degree from Edinboro State 
College, the M. Ed. degree from 
Duke University, and the LL.D. 
from Norwich University. 

He has served as a public 
school teacher, elementary 
school principal, high school 
principal, prep-school dean and 
college dean. 

During World War II he serv- 
ed as a Lt. Commander of the 
U. S. Navy in the Paicific The- 
atre. In 1950 he transferred to 
the Army Reserve, and he now 
holds the rank of Lt. Col. in 
Army Reserve. 

He has l)een our president 
since 1949. He is a member of 
the Executive Committee of As- 
sociation of Military Colleges 
and Schools of the United 
States, a member of the United 
States Advisory Panel on ROTC 
Affairs, a trustee of the Ty 
Cobb Education Foundation, and 
a member of the Commission 
for Colleges of the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Sec- 
ondary Schools. 

Dr. Hoag is married to the 
former Ruth Ann Lowry of Fort 
Worth, Texas. Mrs. Hoag, an 
alumni of Texas Christian, is 
co-sponsor of the Student Chris- 
tian Union. They have one son, 
Randall, who is a freshman at

Luxembourg. Jobs are much the

three weeks to permanent em- 

Lifeguarding, office work, re-

work are only a few categories 
to be found among the 10,000 
jobs ASIS has on file. An inter- 
esting summer pastime not found 
in America is tutoring. Numer- 
ous well-to-do European fami- 
lies are inviting American col- 
lege students to spend the sum- 
mer with them and teach their 
children English. 

Wages range to $400 a month, 
and in most cases neither pre- 
vious experience nor knowledge 
of a foreign language is re- 
quired. ASIS, in its seventh year 
of operation, will place more 
American students in summer 
jobs in Europe this summer 
than ever before. 

Students interested in work-

Finally, at 9:00 a blue Oldsmo- 
bile drove up to the bottom of 
the steps and six members of the 
band got otit. They went inside, set 
up the drums, and waited with the 
rest of the crowd. Two more bands- 
men arrived and waited for the 
last two members who had the 
rest of the instruments. They wait- 
ed, and waited, and waited. . . . 

About 10:00 Tommy Odom, the 
president of the fraternity, made 
an anouncement to the effect 
that the dance was going o be re- 
scheduled to take place in two 
weeks. So the icouples drifted away 
to await for another night when, 
maybe, things would go better. 

You^ve Got Guts? 

Dear Editor, 

"Why don't you print more things about people on campus? 
Why don't you print a column about who's dating who? Why don't 
you print more about this — and such-and-such?" We try to. Every- 
thing that's printable and that we can lay our little hot hands on; 
we print. The comment, "It's all right-I guess," follows each 
edition. It's discouraging wrinting for so many critics who appar- 
ently can't write. 

So you think you've got guts? Well, why don't you, the stud- 
ents of N. G. C, do something about your paper if you're so un- 
happy with it? If you have a brain, a little intelligence (or do I 
overestimate you), and can write a 101 English paper, you can 
contribute to your student newspaper. 

A staff such as ours cannot possibly cover everything that 
happens on this campus. Nor can we have pictures of everything 
on this campus. Nor can we know who's doing what. If you, the 
students, have enough guts to write something printable (you don't 
even have to sign your name) — we'll print it. That is, if you have 
enough guts. 

The "Bugler Box" in the canteen awaits your effort-and it 
waits-and waits. . .

A few months ago, I became a student of North Georgia Col 
lege. Was this a mistake? I sometimes think that it is. Sure 
There's wonderfvul ratio of boys to girls and the scenery is beauti 
ful. I can watch the sun come up each morning and see the mous 
tains from my window. What does it lack? Only the most importan 
thing that a campus needs-school spirit. This place is so dead tha 
it's pitiful. How many students will s.and willingly and say proudly 
"I'm from North Georgia College." 

We came here to learn, not only the knowledge from books 
but also the most important thing that we need to learn in lifeN) 
how to get along with people, and how to stand up for what Wfl 

A few days ago I read a paper that expressed the opinion o 
someone who had the fortitude to siand up and say what he be 
lieved. That two-page paper expressed the feelings of over 999i 
of this campus, but they are afraid to voice their opinions. 

We came here to learn, but are we learning to become an in 
dividual if we are not given the opportunity to express ourselvei 
without having t-he words put into our mouths by some of he so.| 
called distinguished people on this campus? i 

A Week of Comments 

A new publication recently made its appearance on carapt 
this last week. I was not surprised to find out after reading 
why the author wishes to remain anonymous. He told the trut 
He is fearing reprisal, and it is not surprising that it will tat 
place. The author (he or she) perhaps could have expressed h 
ideas more carefully, but on a whole he is quite correct. 

Why ican't we print the truth? But we do print it; many peop: 
often do not realize it and yet they are the first to critize the Corp 
the Administration, and the faculty. They say we do not print whi 
they want to hear, yet when the time comes to help out on th 
paper, donators are lacking. Perhaps the unknown author wouJ 
like to be first to help. 

But why mention reprisals? This is a military school, and 1 
maintain basic discipline certan Imitations must be imposed. TK 
Cadet system is based on privileges. On entering, the cadet hi 
these taken away, to be given back only after he has shown 1 
can cope with responsibility. Being a member of this brigade, an 
also of this staff, I can say the hardest part of writing the pape 
is censoring so that feelings, friends, and people in general ai 
not slighted or insensed by an article. What it boils down to 
this; shall we maintain the Corps and military system, putting oi 
complaints and suggestions through proper channels, or shall w 
go civilian? It must, however, be remembered that even in civilia 
life one must have control. Society demands it. 

This seems to be the week for making comments, so I'd lik 
to- make a few. I can say from experience the thing I miss on thi 
campus is lack of student-school spirit. How many know the tun 
of the Alma Mater, let alone the words? Also there seems to be 
barrier between the students and the insructors. Why? Why nc 
work on eliminating it? Why are many afraid to sit down an 
have a cup of coffee with a teacher in the canteen. I have foun 
that many times one learns much by this. Often the instructc 
can give one a different insight or slant ino a problem. 

Changes are being made; change is the key word of our time. 
If changes are to be made on this campus, the word is unificatior 
unification of the students with the faculty and he Administratio 
with frank, open communication between them. 

Yes, this seemed to be the week of comments-pause, an 
evaluate them.

I'll say one thing 

about' em They 

let ya know where 
you stand. 

While the U. S. Treasury is 
telling us to spend our silver and 
folding money, the cadels of North 
Georgia are trying to get their 
hands on some to spend. 

It seems that the average cadet 
is perpetually broke. Once a week 
he has more money than he dared 
even to think of — his long antici- 
pated weekly check arrived. How- 
ever, when he gets finished p^y,- 
ing the cleaners and sewing shop; 
getting a haircut, wax, starch, pen- 
cils, paper and stationery to write 
home for more money, he is broke 
again. His money lasted about 
four hours. 

To get money for the following 
week he rents anything and every- 
thing. He sells bits and pieces of 
his uniform. Books «re rented 
along with the brass motor. Every- 

thing he owns is for sale. Noth| 
is sacred, including a picture 
his girl. 

Some Cadets have thought 
some interesting maans of 
taining money, but most of th 
ideas would cause their dismis- 
from school. For example, the i(i 
came up to have a raffle. 1 
prize would be a fifth of sipp 
whiskey. The tickets would c 
twenty cents each. The boys t: 
figured this out also figured tl 
could clear about five dollars. C 
complication — would they hi 
the fifth? So much for that p!, 

In the end,, it is the destiny 
the North de^orgia Cadet to : 
penniless. There is no hope. Gj; 
and suffer. 


In Tune With The Times 

The time of the year has come 
for the girls on campus to show 
their fashion know-how. As far 
as fashion is concerned, winter is 
the ideal season to put a little 
more emphasis on achieving that 
special look." Now the puestion 
comes to mind, "How can I get 
that look?" 

First oi. all, observe the cur- 
rent fads and decide how you can 
adapt them to your own particular 
personality. A new introduction 
this year is the shell, an all-pur- 
pose item that should be on every 
girl's list. It can be used to dress 
up a suit or to give a sporty look 
to a skirt. Its wide-spread appeal 
can be contributed to i^s obvious 
femininity and comfort. The shell 
seems to be replacing the dickey, 
which of. en proves tobebother- 
some and hard to keep in place. 

Of course, bulky sweaters will 

never go out of style, andthep 
E«nt trend seems to be in moha 
and rough Italian knits.Thi 
swea'lers range in a variety 
colors to suit the occasion. St 
pastels with matching skirts g 
that "dressed-up effect," while ts 
looser knits of mere vibrant shac; 
are ideal for plaid skirts and kn- 
' socks. 

Bee-Bops are popping up [ 
over campus, but Weegin? a 
Spaldings still take the lead 
the line of footwear. 

With these things in mind a 
fashion magazine beside you, fii 
a look that suits your taste. Ai 
a few extra touches of your o\v 
and then take a look! What yi, 
see is special because it's you. , 

P. S. Don't forget those p; 
terned s'.ockings on your ne; 
trip home. They come in all kin| 
of fashionable colors. ,

Who is the best dressed girl on the NGC campus? Who always 
,)oks like an ad in a fashion magazine, is the first to try the 
ewest style, makes every other girl feel like she's dressed in 
and-me-downs? Look around and help the Cadet Buglar find the 
harp and smooth coed. 

For the first time. The Bugler

lis "Best Dressed College Girl" 
n the NGC campus. In conjunc- 
on with Glamour Magazine, 
hich each year selects ten out- 
andingly well-dressed college 
omen to be featured in their 
ugust Back-To-School issue,

■ction of a girl to represent 
GC in this now-famous con- 


' After the winner on campus 
selected, she will be photo- 
raphed in a typical campus 
jtfit, a day-time off-campus 
itfit, and a party dress. These 
hotos will then be sent to 
lamour for national judging 
y a panel of editors. From the 
•oup of semi-finalists, ten win- 
?rs and 20 honorable mentions 
ill be named. 

A month spent in New York 
; Glamour's guest, an inside 
ok at the world of fashion, 
irties, Broadway shows, and 
fts galore will be among the

'■ew numbers and were given 
irt of an education that devel-

Advanced ROTC Men Given 
Space Available Air Travel 

By A Times Staff Writer 

WASHINGTON — Space available travel on Air Force air- 
craft is now open to the Army's 25,000-plus advanced ROTC stud- 
ents but under the strictly limited conditions faced by all inactive 

The arrangement includes 
space available travel aboard 
all military aircraft but those 
flying regularly schedued routes 
as part of MATS' Industrial 
Fund operation. The travel au- 
thority, announced this week by 
the Air Force, is limited to 
flights within the Continental 

The space available arrange- 
ment is limited to advanced 
ROTC cadets who are sworn in 
the Army Reserve as part of 
the requirement of the new 
ROTC law. 

The new policy allows advan- 
ced cadets to travel aboard Air 
Force aircraft only when the 

student is officially excused 
from school, or when traveling 
to or from home when school 
is not in session. 

For such travel, the student 
will be required to carry a docu- 
ment signed by the senior com- 
missioned officer in charge of 
the ROTC program at an ac- 
credited college or university. 

The document identifies the 
student as an advanced ROTC 
member (junior or senior in 
college) who is enlisted in the 
Army Reserve and is otherwise 
eligible for space available 
travel, the Pentagon said. 

The ROTC student must settle

In the last issue of the paper we unintentionally slighted REX 
fraternity. REX has made several contributions to the campus 
and we feel that they ought to be given a word of praise for their 

Their first major contribution was the holding of a dance 
for which a colored band, James Brown and The Mighty Sensations, 
played. This as far as we know is the first time that this has been 
done. Students as well as faculty members who attended were 
pleased with this performance. The second contribution was a 
dance held in the Dahlonega Community House. This was open 
to the whole student body for a slight admission charge. Over 
a hundred students took advantage of this social event to relieve 
their boredom and to throughly enjoy themselves. 

At the first of the year the administration was thinking of 
abolishing both REX and Sigma Theta on the grounds that they 
contributed nothing to the College community. A fraternity exists 
on the grounds that it provides social as well as service contri- 
butions to the students, who are members and to those who are 
not. REX has certainly done this and we expect that Simga The^a 
will come up with something, also, in the near future. 

A few questions that we would like answered are on the 
"thirty-second ruIeVWe understand that this rule was levied by the 
Brigade Commander and his staff to protect the Cadets. Why do we 
need this type of protection? Are the powers thai be trying to 
condone going out on some lonely road or mountain or dark 
stretch and all that might go with this sneaking around? Do they 
realize with seriousness that we are now college students and 
need to stail making some of our own personanl rules? 
We suggest that an objective look be taken by the administration 
and the military department at the regulations governing the 
cadet-coed relations and that this look be at both the written 
and the "un-written" rules. 

This is only one of many questions that we as students ought 
to be asking ourselves and the administration, concerning the 
college and its policies. This does not mean that every little gripe 
needs to be aired, but constructive criticism with suggestons for 
improvement need to be offered and considered for the better- 
ment of the college and its facilities.

Dear Editor, 

After having lived on the campus of North Georgia, I hai 
noticed a particular phase of the college which could very wi 
give it a bad reputation. Believe me, I am not the only one w. 

has noticed this just ask any visitor who spends a day wi 

us what his opinion of "our girl" is. 

The NGC co-ed does not always display her best manners ■ 
campus. Being late most of the time, she rushes around from O; 
building to the next ignoring to speak to the people that s.^ 

meets. ^ 

During chow, she almost lives up to some of the names tr. 
the boys frequently refer to her as being. She will rush to the he 
of the line, sometimes rushing from one to the next if she thmi 
she might get served first. When she has finished, she sits at t^ 
tables and "talks" while a whole company of men stand aroul 
holding their trays waiting to sit down. Then, she breaks m frq: 
of the boys to put up her tray. 

After leaving the dining hall, she goes to the canteen. Nati 
ally she "elbows" her way to the front of the line at the count 
We won't even mention the tactics that she uses to get to h' 
mailbox every hour. 

During drill, we find her walking between the lines brei- 
ing the chain of command several times. During parades si 
constantly talks. She doesn't always treat the boys right, but Si 
breaks her back to get a date with one of them for a Saturda 

If her "dream man" arrives too early, she criticizes him i; 
running on the military schedule all day and all night. If she stdi 
on his polished shoes, she blames him for having such big feet. 

Because the men were ordered to speak to the "ladies," •' 
do but not because we think that they act like ladies. If the co-l 
tried to understand us and not make such demands on us, ti 
whole student body would be a lot happier. 


Dear Editor, 

Recently, pertaining to the Corps of Cadets, there has been 
a drive aimed at stamping out profanity. The officers and upper- 
classmen surely must realize that they are setting the example 
for the Freshmen and Sophomores to follow. They pass the orders 
down the chain of command and never figure that their content 
may possibly pertain to them also. Why should they? They are 
Seniors now, and why should this pertain to them? So where does 
this leave us? Another year has gone by, and we still receive the 
same old poop down from Brigade Staff — no more of this and 
no more of that. So What? It's just an echo of the years before. 
If you so-called "leaders" want your men to respect you, you 
had better practice what you preach. 

When you First Sergeants give out the morning poop, think 
before you speak. And you Captains, too, just because you've 
got three buttons doesn't mean you're above reproach. And you 
Upperclassmen in front of the chow formation, you wonder why 
the Freshmen horse around and talk all the time. Why don't 
you all take a good look at yourselves. 


Dear Editor, 

The Cadets and Co-eds at NGC finally realize a necessity for 
having school spirit at NGC, and that there should be more than 
just company spirit floating around the dorm. However, company 
esprit de corps is necessary in our military society, but we proved 
we had more than company spirit last fall when tJie two batal- 
lions clashed in the All-Star footbal game. Whether we knew 
it or not, we were taking our first step toward esprit de NGC. 

In order to have school spirit we must have a united effort 

pulling for one objective, and since baseball season and tennis 

season are aroiuid yon patch of ice, we can take our second step 

toward esprit de NG€. How? By coming to the games and pulling 

^ together for our teams. 

I Composed of members from each academic class, company, 

I and battalion, our NGC teams play schools such as the University 

I of Georgia, Elrskine, Western Carolina, and Piedment. Let us take 

our second step by pulling together for our teams, our school. Our 

teams and our school need and deserve our support, so let's give 

it to them. 

By the way, Mr. Editor, now that you have published the 
baseball schedule, why not publish a list of the players of both 
: tennis and baseball teams?

Church News and Comment 

By Earle Bemis 

Starting with the next edition of the Cadet Bugler, this 
icolumn, "Church News and Comment," will be made available to 
lihe local churches and fellowship organizations. In it. The Bugler 
Aill publish forth-coming topics and activities of the fellowships, 
md present controversial subjects which will be commented on by 
our local ministers. 

The need for this me:ns of communication between the church 

and campus can be expressed in the fact that an average of 240 

icollege students attend various fellowship activities weekly. Any 

other appropriate material or ideas for this column may be turned 

n to the Cadet Bugler. 

Dahlonega, Georgia — Home of North Georgia College and 
the first gold rush in the United States. 

"North Georgia College, located at Dahlonega in the center 
of Georgia's gold area. . . " 

So might read typical Chamber of Commerce propaganda 
and N. G. C. Public Relations poop. In other words, "Dahlonega 
needs North Georgia College and North Georgia College needs 
Dahlonega." What would Dahlonega be besides the county seat of 
Lumpkin, if it were not for the increase of one thousand stud- 
ents to its population and economy, even if N. G. C. land is state 
owned and therefore non-taxable? What would North Georgia be 
if it were not for the community of Dahlonega to supply the 
necessities and outside recreation for its students, their families, 
and friends, and the professors and their families. Dahlonega's 
mayor, Mrs. Jessie Gamer agrees that the city and school are 
interdependent communities. 

In some areas the economic well-being of some businesses 
depend on ;he economic well-being of the students. The only 
businesses open at night besides the Holly are the restaurants: the 
Smith House, the Cherokee, the Dixie, and Gold City Restaurant. 
These constitute the outside recreation offered by Dahlonega. In 
the area of overnight accomodations offered by Dahlonega to 
the visitors of the students there is the Smith House and the 
Cherokee. The quality of service offered by these businesses is 
proportionate to the amount of business they get. The Smith 
House lives up to its nation-wide reputation for simple, good food 
and simple, nice lodging. The Cherokee and Dixie, which cater to 
the .students, fall short of their potentialities. Gold City's patrons 
currently are the citizens of Dahlonega, although its food is just 
as good as the Dixie or Cherokee. 

There is news of a new business enterprise from Atlanta 
coming to Dahlonega, which should be welcomed by the students 
and townspeople with anticipation of bringing better and more 
services to the community. It is Dahlonega Gold, Inc. whose pro- 
ject is to invest more than a million dollars in a 40 or 50 unit

a practical demonstration of Dahlonega's rich, historical back- 
ground _ a full scale reproduction of a gold mining town and the 
exploration of the Consolidated Mine and other diggings of his- 
torical significance. The extent of this venture will depend on the 
output of a feasibility study by a tourism-recreation expert. 

This motel should be expected to help Dahlonega's other busi- 
nesses by bringing more people into the area. Since the Smith 
House is a well-established institution, its business can only be 
helped by attracting more people and by relieving its sometimes 
crowded conditions. This will present the necessity of improvement

ROTC Grad Gains 

UCLA, Calif. — This is in re- 
ply to the letter from "Pertur- 
bed OCS Grad" in the December 
16 issue. In attacking the ROTC 
graduate, I feel he was both 
unju!. and unwise. 

The article that prompted his 
letler related to the cost of pro- 
ducing an ROTC graduate. I 
write this with somewhat limit- 
ed background, though perhaps 
adcqua.e. I served as an EM 
for three years; upon discharge 
I returned to school. In the sum- 
mer of '65 I will be commis- 
sioned as a DMG with a Regular 
commission from a major uni- 
versity. I have served under 
OCS gracis and am a cadet my- 
self, thus I feel somewhat qual- 
ified on this subject. 

I believe it is obvious to al- 
most everyone that an OCS 
grad is technically and iacti- 
cally more proficient than the 
average ROTC grad upon com- 
missioning. Proficiency comes 
through experience. After a 
couple of years the ROTC- grad- 
uate has the experience that 
puts him up with the OCS of- 
ficer and then the advan.age is 

There is m:re to being an 
excellent officer than bein? 
"tough" or even "highly moti- 
vated." The "up the hill, over 
the hill, through the hill" spirit 
is necessary in the lieutenant 
in a combat arm, but less so in 

Through Experience 

our field grade and general 
officers. With them it is deci- 
sion-making that coun'.s. To 
make the right decisions re- 
quires experience and educa- 

The "well-rounded" officer 
needs to know more than 
Clausewitz and Trevor-Roper. 
He should also know Machiavilli 
and Michelangelo. Unfortunate- 
ly, there is little time for the 
active duty officer to spend on 
them. There is more in this 
world than the military (though 
I hope to spend the next 30 
years in the A: my). 

This is the advantage of the 
"average" ROTC graduate over 
the "average" OCS graduate. 
This is the reason why "the 
cost of producing an ROTC 
graduate is not excessive" as 
your staff writer pointed out. 

The more education ALL offi- 
cers get, the more value they 
are to the Army. We should not 
demean another group of offi- 
cers as being "inferior" (I 
would be the last to attack the 
competence of OCS graduates). 
This is MY Army just as it is 
every other professional's and 
I intend to do my best to make 
it as fine as it possibly can be to 
give my life serving it if neces-

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon made two moves this week 
against racial segregation. According to Defense civil rights offi- 
cials, the Pentagon is going to seek an end to segregation in all 
ROTC units. At the same ime. Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc- 
Namara issued a new directive which calls for cutting off federal 
funds to Defense programs which practice racial segregation. 

Specifically named as programs to which the directive applies 
are the Army and Air National Guard, the national rifle practice 
program and the Civil Air Patrol. 

The Guard, which gets 90 percent of its money from Wash- 
ington, has promised to desegregate, but in some state's integra- 
tion has been only a token effort. 

The directive explains how a person who feels he is a victim of 
discrimination can lodge complaints.

A large crowd turned out 
Saturday night, January 23, to 
welcome the fabulous Tams to 
N(5C campus. As usual, the Sig- 
ma Theta dance was, by far, the 
outstanding social event this 
year, and everyone who attend- 
ed went away with a feeling 
of satisfaction. The Tams sang 
several of their top recordings, 
including their well-known song 
"Under the Boardwalk." Many 
members of REX fraternity 
commented on the unique decor- 
ations and the band and went 
away with a look of envy. Sigma 
Theta will have another dance 
later this quarter and from all 
indications it will far surpass 
this one. The dance was chaper- 
oned by Professor and Mrs. R. 
H. Belcher.

for rock-bottom priority. He can- 
not compete for space with 
other eligibles, such as active 
duty personnel and retirees. 
The Pentagon urges ROTC cad- 
ets to seek military travel only 
as a "last resort". It sugegsts 
that they fly commercial if at 
all possible because of the 
phdrtage of military aircraft 
space and the ROTC cadet's 
low priority in getting it. 

The space available travel ar- 
rangement is available not only 
10 Army ROTC cadets but Navy 
NROTC students receiving train- 
ing under the Holloway Plan 
and Air Force advanced cadets.

'e had the order. Our pa- 
" leader quickly organized 
ii patrol and gave each ele- 
I'lt its mission. We had 15 
VI which made up the patrol. 
I patrol consisted of an as- 
a t team and a security team. 
■*' men were given the job 
f emolition and were assigned 

to the assault team. 

Via "Ethel" we were lifted 
over the rough terrain and 
dropped near the objective in 
enemy controlled territory. It 
was 0750 hours; jumping off, 
the patrol quickly moved out. 
The point man moved slowly as 
the dense brush is ideal for an 

0837: a shot rings out — our 
patrol leader is dead; fire is 
returned and the enemy sniper 
is killed. We move on. The 
assault team leader has taken 
command. At 0900 the objec 
tive is in sight The assault 
team starts to move in with the 
demolition. The security team 
begins to set up to protect the 
flanks and the assault retro- 
grade. I move up with the 
assault unit. We go in quickly. 
Two men have fallen. Enemy 
fire is heavy. One man strips 
an enemy body for information; 
two others place the demolition 
charges while the rest covers 
them. The withdrawal is made 
under heavy fire, and the se- 
curity has trouble covering due 
to the heavy brush. 

We are on the move again as 
quickly as possible to clear the 
area before the enemy can re- 
group. It was too late: we en- 
countered an ambush. In the 
exchange of fire five of our 
men die and four are wounded. 
Due to the time element and 
the condition of enemy forces, 
we leave our wounded. 

Our radio is finally working 
and we call into Moonshine 1 
for pickup. We meet "Ethel" 
and we are lifted out of enemy 
territory at 1100 hours. The 
patrol is over and the mission 
has been accomplished. Quickly

In chapel last week a program of folksongs and satire was 
presented by Joe and Penny Aronson. This program labeled "The 
best we have had this year" by students was arranged through 
Alkahest Attractions, Inc. of Atlanta. 


A Distinguished Military Student is a person who baa shows 
outstanding military and academic abilities. To qualify for a DUS. 
a cadet must have outstanding qualities of leadership, high moral 
character, and a definite aptitude for the military service. He must 
stand in the upper half of his acadamic class (the only exception 
to this is in ease of an individual student who ranks n the upper 
ten per cent of his military class). He must have demonstraited 
his leadership ability through "a i>MG from North Georgia 

his campus achievement and 
he must have obtained a class 
standing in the upper one-third 
of his ROTC class in the Ad- 
vanced Course, Senior Division, 

The goal of a DMS is to grad- 
uate as a Distinguished Military 
Graduate and to receive a Regu- 
lar Army commission. To do 
this a DMS must maintain the 
standards that enabled him to 
receive his DMS. 

Major Rew's opinions on the 
DMS program are that "the DMS 
program is a good thing and 
that it is a real boon to a young 
individual who wants a career 
in the Regular Army. If a per- 
son demonstrates the qualities 
necessary for a DMS, he stands 
a better chance of obtaining his 
Regular Army Commission this 
way than through any other pro- 
gram such as OCS or integration 
into the Regular Army while on 
active duty." 

It is felt by Major Rew that 

College can hold his own with 
any other type of service com- 
mission now being offered." 

The list of DMS's for Fall 
Quarter and their branch as- 
signments are as follows:*

How can the North Georgia

students? How can current and 
more effectively? 

These and many related ques- 
tions the North Georgia Col- 
lege faculty, staff, administra- 
tion, and students are asking 
themselves through an Institu- 
tional Self-Study which was to 
be initiated in September 1965, 
with the results and recommen- 
dations to be released in April 
1966. An Institutional Self-Study 
must be conducted by all mem- 
ber colleges and universities of 
the Southern Association of 
Colleges for the purpose of 
formulating quality standards 
for evaluating services rendered 
students. In the future a Self- 
Study will be conducted every 
ten years.

Many students have complained to us in the past that they 
would like a chance to express Iheir opinions on the campus 
movies, assembly programs, etc. We talked to Mr. Gilbert about 
this and found out that the movies are selected by a student 
committee. Since these students represent only a few of the likes 
and dislikes, we are sponsoring a new method to select these films. 
An article in this paper explains how to express your choice 
for the movies. We are giving you, the students, a chance to voice 
your opinions — so what are you going to do with this opportunity?

Dear Editor, 

It recently became my good fortune to read the February 
Issue of your Cadet Bugler. I was rather curious as to what 
■would be like since I have been a visitor to your campus sever 
times. I found it the product of both serious and hard work on tJ; 
part of the staff. I should like to say that it alone is a tribute 1 
you ajid your school. 

The praise of your newspaper or its staff however is nt 
the purpose of this letter. I write in reply to a letter printed i 
this edition. I view the opinions of "your girl" expressed in th . 
letter quite appalling. Since I am an "outsider" and since I hav 
many friends there, some of which I have known since secondar 
school, I should like to express my opinion of the NGC co-e< 

Since my school is considerably larger and has a greate ' 
ratio of women, I feel that I can be a little more imparti; 
in my judgement of her than Mr. "Fed-up." It has been my pie; 
sure to meet several co-eds and to view many more at variou 
times. To say, 'The NOC co-ed does not always display her bes 
manners on campus" seem rather presumptuous and a little foo 
hardy. I find co-eds at your school not substantially different tha 
those to be found at any American college or university, and likf 
wise I fail to find one whose reputation is suffering due to their 
I might point out to this individual that there exists some school 
totally lacking the "male counterpart" which enjoy a reputatioi 
that either of our schools could well envy. 

I must however pronounce one word of shame on co-eds 
It is truly a sad thing that, "She doesn's always treat the boy 
right, but she breaks her back to get a date with one of then 
for a Saturday." It isn't sad that they do this per se because wo 
men have done this since the time of Adam and I don't expec 
them to change in a twinkle of an eye, but it is sad that they worl 
"so hard" to get a date and have to spend an evening with sucl 
a disturbed individual. 

I perceive the solution to this problem is stated in the las 
sentence of this article: "If the co-ed tried to understand us and no 
make such demands on us, the whole student body would be a lo 
happier." I also probably see the real reason for the letter. 
would wager that one of those "talking," "elbowing," and gener 
ally "unladylike" co-eds has squashed Mr. "Fed-up" and my onl} 
comment is "Hurrah for her." 

I feel very happy that "my girl" is one of the co-eds at Nortl 
Georgia College. I hope that she isn't the one who "steps on youi 
polished shoes . . . (then) blames you for having such big feet.' 

Partial to Co-eds.

on Saturday night more to the 
liking of the students at North

The drill events will consist 
of fancy, platoon (FM-22-5). and 
individual drill. The platoon 
drill will take place in an area 
50x40 yards on the drill field. 
The fancy drill in conjunction 
with this will last ten minutes. 

One of the interesting fea- 
tures of this meet is that both 
Drill Masters have a personal 
interest in winning. David Ray 
attended N. G. C. for two years, 
entering in 1961. He was as- 
signed to Company Bravo and 
joined the Drill Platoon. 

John Lawrence came to N. G. 
C. in 1962 and was assigned to 
Company Bravo also. Lawrence, 
whose squad leader was Ray, 
joined the Drill Platoon. Ray 
was also Lawrence's Squad Lead- 
er on the Drill Platoon during 
Lawrence's freshman year. In 
1963 Ray transferred to the 
University of Georgia to enter 
Pharmaceutical School. 

Perhaps one can say this 
will be a "duel of the Masters." 
Will the student teach the mas- 
ter? We do not know, neither 
does either unit until they meet. 
But we do know this, our unit 
.has put in a lot of practice on

first meet of the year. I strong- 
ly urge you to attend — it will

And You Think 
You Work Too Hard! 

There aren't as many people 
working as you may have 
thought. At least according to a 
recent survey. 

The papulation of the United 
States is 160 million, but there 
are 62 million over 60 years of 
age, leaving 98 million to do the 
work. People under 21 years 
of age total 54 million, which 
leaves 44 million to work. 

Then there are 21 million 
who are employed by the 
Government, and that leaves 23 
million to do the work. 10 mil- 
lion are in the Armed Forces, 
leaving 13 million to get the 
work done. Deduct 12,800,000 
who are employed by the State 
and City Offices, and the num- 
ber would be 200,000 to do the 
work. There are 188 thousand 
in hospitals, insane asylums, 
etc., and that leaves 12 thous- 
and to do the work. 

Now it may interest you to 
know that there are 11,996 
people in jail, so that leaves 
just two people to do the work. 
And that is you and me, broth- 
er, and I am getting tired of 
doing everything myself.

The Voice of Command 

During the past 2 weeks the junior MS 301 students havt 
been working on an intensified program of training in communi 
cations. Under M/Sgt. Funk the MS 301 students have shown an 
amazing ability in the fields of radio and wire communicati&ns 

Practical application of com- 
munications was stressed at all 
times — relating the importance 
of communications to our cur- 
rent situation in Viet Nam. 
Students were given the maxi- 
mum opportunity to set up and 
operate radio, telephones, and 
switchboards. This practical 
application gave the students a 
working knowledge of commu- 
nications equipment and its cap- 
abilities and limitations. 

Regardless of the branch of 
the Army a student enters, he 
will be vitally concerned with 

The three basic requirements 
for a soldier in combat are that 
he be able to shoot, move, and 

Interest and enthusiasm in 
learing communications has 
been extremely high and it 
should serve the juniors well 
at Summer Camp aad in future

Rebels Squeak By Raiders, 73-71 

North Georgia College closed its intramural basketball sea- 
son with a battalion versus battalion all-star game. The guns for 
the evening were Flournoy with 27 points (2nd Bn.) and Cross 
with 21 points (1st Bn.) 

The game was an exciting one 
down to the finish. The Raiders 
led by one point at the half, 
but the Rebels staged a tremen- 
dous comeback to overcome a 
five point deficit and go ahead 
by one point. They built up their 
lead to five and managed to 
stay with one minute to go. 

Brinson of the Raiders fouled 
out and Callahan was brought 
in to replace him. Hackett (2nd) 
and Harris (1st) were next to 
?o. Then Cross who managed to 
play a tremendous game both 
Jn the backboards and from the 
floor was out. The score with 
five seconds left was 73-69, 
ffhen Callahan received a long 
pass and raced down court to 
ay one up and make the final 
JUtcome 73-71.

!vent. Flournoy, who scored 27 
)oints, also played an impor- 
ant part in rebounding. In one 
leriod he cleaned the boards 
out of 12 times. 

Coaches for the game were

Baseball To Get Underway 
On March 12 

In reading the baseball schedule set forth in a past issue of 
the Bugler it no doubt came as a shock to many to find the Univer- 
sity of Georgia at the head of the list — but this season promises 
to be unusual in more ways than one. For instance, there is a 
rumor which is based partly on fact that all N. G. C. home games 
will be broadcast on one of the Gainesville radio stations. For 
that. matter, our first game of the season, played at the University, 
may be televised on the University's educational station, channel 

But there is nothing out of 
the ordinary about our schedule. 
Coach Otte has done it again 
when it comes to digging up the 
toughest opponents in the south- 
east. Carson Newman, the num- 
ber one small college in the 
nation, appears on the N. G. 

C. roster four times. As one of 
the players put it, "If we win 
our first seven games, we'll be 
in the top ten in the nation." 

What kind of material do 
we have to use against a sche- 
dule like this? At the top of 
Continued on Page 6

(Ed. note: This has been 
posted on the company bulle- 
tin boards, but we feel that 
every student should be given 
a chance to read it.) 

What is retreat? Webster de- 
fines it, "A signal given in the 
Army by drum, trumpet or the 
like following evening roll call 
or parade and immediately fol- 
lowed by the sunset gun." I 
hasten to add that this retreat- 
has nothing, whatever, to do 
with the retreating of an Army! 

It is the daily ceremony on 
an army post which accompan- 
ies the lowering of the flag and 
msrks the official close of the 
day. The time for sounding both 
reveille and retreat is directed 
by the installation commander 
and approximates the time of 
Eunrire and sunset. 

The bu?Ie call, "Retreat," was 
first used by he French Army, 
and is said to date back to the 
time af the Crusades. It signified 
c.ri?inally, the closing in of 
night, and signaled the sentries 
to start challenging, to main- 
tain thei' secjrity watch until 
the Fiund of reveille the next 
morning and for the remainder 
of the troops to stay quiet for 
the night. 

Army Re?ula'.ions say "At the 
last note of re real, a gun will 
be fired, if the ceremony is on 
a military reservation, at which 
time the band or field music 
will play the National Anthem 
or .'"'und To The Colors, and 
the flag will start to be lowered. 
The lowering of the flag will 
be regulated so as to be com- 
pleted at the last note of mu- 
sic." The flag is never allowed 
to touch the ground, before be- 
ing completely detached from 

the halyard it is carefully folded 
into the shape of a cocked hat 
and under arms, marched to 
headquarters for safe keeping 
until the following day. 

And what are you doing dur- 
ing those few, beautiful almost 
reverent moments? At the first 
note of To The Colors, you 
should have anticipated the gun. 
If you heard "Retreat," you will 
be standing at attention, fac- 
ing the flag if you can see it, 
otherwise, the sound of the mu- 
sic. Don't you always look to 
see the flag flying high as you 

go from class to class? "Vehicles 
in motion will be brought to a 
halt." If you are driving, pull 
the car over to the curb, get 
out and stand at attention and 
render the appropriate salute 
at the proper time. "Persons 
riding in cars dismount and 
salute." The question is always 
asked: Must women get out of 
the car?" For years and years, 
it has been the only approved 
way to stand retreat, rain or 

What aliout the hand salute 
for women? The hand over the 
heart salute can be a bit com- 
plicated, if you have books in 
each hand plus a purse, etc. 
The quiet dignity of simply 
standing at attention erect and 
still shows your respect; the 
salute is immaterial. It is what 
you feel in your heart that 
counts. Never be rude to the 

What about civilians on post? 
What do they do? It's their 
flag too! What does the flag 
represent? " The flag represents 
the living country and is con- 
sidered a living thing." Long 
may it live.

the list, of course, we have 
Leon Ricketson, North Georgia's 
all-American catcher. Ricketson 
is expected to do a little pitch- 
ing this year, and possibly a 
little work at short. Rick is 
said to have a terrific fast ball 
and the ability to keep throw- 
ing it. Our regular pitchers will 
be Clay Harris. Lee Campbell, 
and Dean Strickland. Returning 
also this year are D. W. (Buffy) 
Buford, John Branch, Carter 
Haley. Robert (Monk) Parish, 
Ronald Creel, Roy Turgeon, 
Jesse Posey and Gary Hawkins. 
We also have the following new- 
comers to the squad: Ted Or- 
vold, Richard Dingier, Butch 
Adair, and William Dunn. 

This is the baseball team 
for sixty-five. No one can deny 
that the team has always lacked 
the full support of the student 
body in the past. Let's hope 
that the new forms of publicity 
which the team is getting this 
year will inspire a better out

gia and perhaps even improve 
our over-all school spirit.

Should Clothing Be Casual 

Spring has arrived full-force on campus, and with it come 
the socials and dances ihat make Spring Quarter full of activity 
every weekend. We should like to bring up a point concerning 
these socials that we feel needs clarification. 

When "civies" are authorized for the cadets, they usually 
wear any and all types of clothes. At the "outside" dances, usually 
held on the Quadrangle between Price Memorial and the Academic 
building, the cadets often wear bermuda shorts, parkas, sneakers, 
and other extremely casual attire. Yet the coeds MUST, at all 
time except picnics and such, wear skirts or dresses. 

We wonder why socials can't be planned for this spring 
quarter where coeds would be permitted to wear casual clothes 
if they wish, just as cadets may. 

We understand the wisdom of the rule that "when a cadet 
is in uniform, a young lady wears a skirt or dress," but it seems 
reasonable to us to allow this rule to be adapted not only for 
picnics and hikes but for outside dances or any other informal 
socials. Usually at company and fraternity dances, cadets are 
dressed more formally, and coeds follow suit with skirts and 
sweaters, etc. We don't question this. However, since spring is 
such a good time for outside activities for the entire student body, 
we hope that this type of activity will be planned and that rules 
of dress for the coeds will be adapted to cover these socials.

Sir Winston Gone, But Not Forgotten 

This speech, made by Lt. General M. G. Baker at Valley 
Forge Military Academy, was brought to our attention a few 
weeks ago. Even though Sir Winston Churchill died back in 
January, we feel that this is worth reprinting as a stirring exam- 
ple of what man can do if he trys. — Editor 

When Winston Churchill came to the United States in De- 
cember 1900 to lecture on his experiences in the Boer War, 
Mark Twain introdu<:ed him thus: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I give 
you the son of an American mother and an English father— the 
perfect man!" 

What was intended as a delightful flourish of rhetoric 
became a prophecy. 

Even the enthusiastic promoter of his tour, who billed him 
as "the future Prime Minister of Great Britain," to the shock 
and dismay of the twenty-six year old Churchill, must now be 
counted as a seer. 

But his heroic exploits in the Boer War were but a prelude 

to greatness.

Dear Editor: f 

In regard to the letter written by the Freshman girl ] 

taining to upperclass nobodies, I would like to reply. 

It seems to me this Freshman girl who has been at 
school for a total of two quarters certainly takes a lot on 1 
self in criticizing people who have been up here three or f 
times as long as she has and have gone through more hell alrei 
than she will in the next twenty or thirty years. 

I humbly suggest that if the "majority of the freshr 
girls" are sick and tired of seeing their friends, fellow classm 
and boyfriends being yelled at in the canteen, the chow hall 
any other place, then they pack their little bags and get out. 
Because a freshman boy "wins" his P.F.C. stripe, does 
exempt him from military duty. Contrary to your seeming oj 
ion, he hasn't reached quite yet the apex of his career. 

The thing you don't seem to comprehend is this: These so-cal 
upper-class nobodies were catching hell while your Freshn 
hero was tooling around in the 10th. 11th, and 12th grades 
high school. 

If your Freshman hero cannot take what is dished out 
him here, then pray tell how is he going to react in comb; 
Maybe you giris don't quite get the picture. The military st 
is not all play. It trains young boys to be efficient in combat, 
you still don't see, go to the library and look at the memor 
issue of the Cyclops dedicated to the cadets who went to t 
school and were killed in Worid War H. Look at the records a 
see how many "immature N. G. C. boys" were killed in Kor 
The Cadet Colonel I had when I was a Freshman and numerc 
other cadet officers of that time are in Viet Nam today, girl, wh 
you go around here griping because somebody yelled at your h 
friend in the canteen. 

I'm sure that somewhere in your vast storehouse of knc* 
ledge, that you have heard this statement — "Do not judge i 
man until you have walked for a while in his shoes." 
I have stood in Freshman's shoes for nine months. 
I have stood in Sphomorc's shoes for nine months. 
I have stood in Junior's shoes for a little over two quarte 
Whose shoes have you stood in. Freshman Coed?

By 1911 he had ris«n to be First Lord of the Admirality, an 
extraordinary achievement for one so young. 

And then, in the first phase of World War One, came the 
disaster of Dardanelles. The responsibility for the failure of the 
expedition was placed on Churchill's shoulders, and a lesser 
man would have been crushed by the stigma. 

Had he fled to the cloister of his country home in 1915 and 
taken refuge in painting, he would have been remembered as a 
blunderer, whose reputation was stained by the blood and the 
mud of Gallipoli. His epitaph would have been recorded by the 
grim spectre of the shattered hulks of the British warships in 
the straits of the Dardanelles. 

As he stood in the House of Cimmons that fateful day in 
1915 to explain and defend his actions as First Lord of the 
Admiralty, amid the gloom of dismissal, there were many who 
felt that this would be his last public appearance. 

But as he spoke, not of defeat, but of unbound confidence, 
his words electrified the Parliament. The majesty of his prose 
;hundered through the great Hall, and caught up in its echo the 
resounding cheers of friend and foe. 

The shades of Edmund Burke, the Pitts-father and son, Glad- 
stone and Disraeli must have applauded this lonely man. 

A single sentence from his stirring speech sums up the 
ahilosophy he later gave to his nation and adopted for himself: 
'The old wars," he said "were decided by their episodes rather 
:han by their tendencies In this war the tendencies are far more 
mportant than the episodes." 

Winston Churchill refused to let his life be controlled by 

Like the broad sweep of his brush across the canvases, re- 
lecting the brilliant colors he loved to paint he sought fulfill- 
nent in tendicies. His character was formed, not in the golden 
ijunlight of triumph, but in the brooding overcast of defeat. 

He exemplified the best of his Anglo-American heritage. He 
jloried in the history of the United States, as well as that of 
he United Kingdom. He found strength in the heroic figures of 
Washington and Lincoln, just as suiely as he sought it in the valor 
)f his distinguished ancestors whose names he bore proudly to 
exalted heights. 
L In an age of despair, he proved the value of faith. 
f_ He personified the courage of a nation during its finest 
lOur and he impressed upon his people that victory would only 
)e achieved by "blood, toil, tears and sweat." 

In the fullness of time, other generations will look back 
ipon the Second World War as simply an episode in the long 
aga of civilization. Yet they will see in the life of this noble 
nan the quality of personal courage that is timeless. 

Thus will Winston Spencer Churchill transcend the events in 
vhich his image was molded. Thus will he be invested with the 
nantle of immortality. 

Not the perfect man, but one who rose above his own imper- 

Therein is the lesson which he has given to posterity as his 

And they shall speak his name with warmth rather than 
we, with affection rather than adulation. They shall cite him

GMPDC Presents Plans 

.,e 3 

On March 12 .Mr. Oliver Terribeiry, director of the Georgia 
Mountains Planning and Development Commission (GAIPDC) spoke 
to a group of residents of Lumpkin County. He presented the 
over-all tentative plan of the GMPDC dealing with tourist attrac 
tion in this area. This consists of developing 'he 12-county North- 
east Georgia area into six big tourist centers with the old Lump- 
kin County Court House as the center of the Lake Lanier-Dahlon- 
ega area. 

Of main importance at ;his meeting, held in the Court House 
itself, was a discussion of what action must be taken to make 
the court hou>e available to the Georgia Hostorical Conimi.s.sion 
for a museum. 

As lourists are be'.ng invited to "Stay and See Georgia" they 
must be given things to see and do. The purpose of the GMPDC 
is to build a complex of related historical and recreational sites 
that will create tourist circulation in this area. Mr. Terriherry 
pointed out the unique part Lumpkin County played in United 
States history as the location of the country's first gold rush. He 
believes that this makes Dahlonega one point in the complex that 
could stand alone. Dahlcnega could be the hub of the complex not 
only because of its historical value but also because of its geo- 
graphic location, scenery, proximity to Lake Lanier, etc 

County officers are now being moved out of the court house 
to the new one. The old building has been approved by the State 
as a museum to be the main point of \nterest in Dahlonesa, 
along with the gold mines, in accordance with the GMPDC pro- 
'gram. The financial branch of this commission, the Georgia Moun- 
tains Commission, which has been given bonding authority by 
the General Assembly, requires the deed to the building and 
$100,000 for restoration, maintenance and equipment to make it 
into a state museum. 

One plan to raise this money is to solicit the governor for 
funds since Dahlonega donated the gold for the capitol dome. 
The other plan is to have a campaign to raise funds. Either of these 
plans is possible; however, Mr. Terriberry personally advised 
that the funds come from contributions of interested individuals 
and groups. The GMPDC would provide professional help with 
the campaign. The work itself would be carried on by such an 
organization as the Chamber of Commerce. 

Dahlonega's "Spirit of '39" reached out to many parts of 
our country's frontier. The first sheriff of San An;onio in 1839 
came from Auraria. Denver. Colorado was founded by three 
brothers who left the gold mines in this area. These areas which 
have their roots in Dahlonega would be interested in the prser- 
vation of our history, and they would be likely prospects for 

Something must be started immediately no matter which 
plan is followed, since the court house will deteriorate the equiva-' 
lent of one year's hard use for every three months it is left 

It is important to the future growth of Dahlonega's economy 
that this tourist project go through.

Dr. Simms Receives Honors 

Dr. J. C. Simms, a professor of chemistry, attended a meet- 
ing in New Orleans, Louisiana February 18. He and others served 
as consultants to the National Science Foundation on the awardi 
of funds for the purchase of under-graduate laboratory equipment. 
From this organization, re- 

quests were made from over 
the United States of equipment 
and $8,000,000 is available. 
North Georgia has been for- 
tunate in having most of its re- 
quests granted, one of the recent 
acquisition being a $7,000 Infra 
Red Spectrophotometer. 

Dr. Simms was recently is-

Scholarship Program 

The Department of the Army announced a college ROTC 
scholarship program that will begin in September, 1965, and 
provides financial assistance to 100 qualified students. The Army 
ROTC program is conducted in 247 colleges and universities 
throughout the nation and produces over 10,000 officers a year. 
Scholarships are being added to this program for the first time 
this year in view of the importance of the ROTC program to the

A Little Bitty Step 

It was a little step, and somewhat Shaky, but it was a step 
foreward. We're referring to tihe haphazard dance held on Tues- 
day, April 6. The idea was good — because of the "closed night," 
it was decided to plan a dance for after supper, 6 to 8, and to 
make it an outside affair, witlh our own Casuals supplying the 

Unfortunately, the planning was unorganized to the point of 
being non-existant. No attempt was made to inform Lewis Hall of 
the dance, the band seemed as unprepared as everyone else, and 
no provision was made for the rain, which is like not preparing 
for supper around NGC. 

We think the dance was a great idea — it has been our belief 
that we need more of this kind of informal, Tuesday-night activity, 
especially the free variety. Next time — and we hope there is a 
next time — perhaps a little more time will be spent preparing 
for such a worthwhile project. We of The Cadet Bugler would be 
glad to help. 

Speaking Out 


We at NGC are lucky. Yes! lucky. Although most of us probably 
feel that we are underprivileged and unduly restricted by the 
rules and regulations that we have to live by (or pay the penalty), 
we are actually privileged by the fact that we have freedom to 
voice our opinions and gripes, and that someone will read them. 

I attended a Georgia College Press Association Conference a 
few weeks ago and participated in tlhe seminars that were held on 
some of the phases of college journalism. While in these meetings 
several interesting problems were brought out concerning admin- 
istrative policies toward the college newspapers. 

One newspaper of a prominent girl's college located nearby 
cannot make any comments about faculty or administration on 
penalty of the staff being relieved of its duties. Other schools who, 
like us, are dependent upon the administration for money to con- 
tinue their publication are also severely restricted (censored). 

As you can see from the above examples, some colleges are in 
a worse position than we. Therefore when we state that the CADET 
BUGLER is not censored and that we openly invite student com- 
ment, we are being serious. However, the petty gripes ttiat ara. 
aired year after year and that have accomplished nothing, do not 
need to be rehashed in different words. 

The function of the CADET BUGLER is to inform students and 
to reflect student opinion. Will you take advantage of the oppor- 
tunities offered to you at North Georgia? 

NCO's Host To Military Ball 

The NCO Club will hold it 
fortieth annual Military Ball 
on May 15, 1965, at 8:00 p. m.

This year, the fifteen-piece 
orchestra of Warren Coving- 
ton has been selected to pre- 
sent the musical entertainment 
for the Ball. 

Invitations will be issued in 
the near future. Faculty mem- 
bers, when notified, should re- 
ply to Ford G'Segner, Box 5442,

Discipline Should be a 

By Clayton Peacock 

If you were to ask an intelligent person, "What does discipline 
mean?" He would likely ask you, "What kind of discipline?" 
If someone were to ask you, "Do you have discipline at N. G. C?" 
you would probably laugh. But have you thought of the type of 
discipline we have? To give an honest answer to our friend's 
question you would have to say that we have plenty, in fact, (an 
overbundance) of enforced discipline but very little, il any, self- 

Have you wondered why N.G. 
C. graduates who are sent to 
the Army branch schools do so 
poorly on the average? Georgia 
Tech has a higher grade aver- 
age for their graduates in the 
Army's branch schools that we 
do, yet we are supposed to be 
turning out "Army officers." 
The answer lies in one word 
— self-discipline. 

When the average freshman 
comes here from high school, 
he has achieved less than half 
of his academic capabilities. 
The first thing he meets is an 
institution for the mentally 
weak called quarters. He is 
forced to study more as the pun- 
ishment for being freshman 
than for intellectual pursuit of 
knowledge. He feels hemmed 
in and therefore does not rely 
own self-discipline but relies 
on the enforced discipline of 
quarters He does not develop 
a displined mind but lets others 
force his mind into a pattern. 
Now comes the question, 
"What happens when this en- 
forced discipline is no longer 
in effect and this person has no 
one to rely on but himself?" The 
answer is all tooo clear. Our 
graduates do a much lower 
grade of work than they are 
capable of simply because they 
have not developed their own 
;elf-discipline. The Georgia Tech 
man knows that from the day 
he sets foot on campus he will 

be on his own and the only 
scapegoat for failure will be 
himself. Because of this he 
stands on his own two feet and 
disciplines himself to the job 
at hand. He can't cry, "If I 
hadn't had all that military to 
do I wouldn't have flunked," 
the crutch he could lean on will 
not be there. Tech doesn't 

have people who hang on quar- 
ter after quarter with two D's 
and an F, or a C, D, and an F. 
They get rid of their "dead 
wood" by letting them get rid 
of themselves. 

Wouldn't it be more effective 
if quarters were not as rigid 
with the Duty NCO there simply 
to keep the noise down. Unlimit- 
ed nights out and late lights 
might even be possible. The re- 
sult would be a group of peo- 
ple who would either get down 
and study on their own, and get 
a lot more out of their edu- 
cation, of play around and flunk 
out the first quarter. This would 
do a lot toward building the in- 
dividual self, and N. G. C. would 
turn out much better graduates. 

How about it; do we do a 
good job or do we make changes 
in "the system" and do a great 
job? This question is not to She 
student body; they already 
know, either directly or indi- 
rectly, that this situation exists. 
It is directed at the faculty, ad- 
ministration, and military de- 

Applications are now be- 
ing accepted for the 1965-66 
staff of the Cadet Bugler. 
Anyone interested in working 
with the paper, se« Ford 
G'Segner or Jeani William- 
son as soon as possible for 
an application. People are

Folksong Festival at Mercer 

The Fifth Annual Georgia Collegiate Folksong Festival will 
be held at Mercer University May 21-22. 

Folk singers from colleges throughout the Southeast annually 
gather in Willingham Chapel to swap songs and play before a 
packed house of folksong enthusiasts at a FViday performance be- 
ginning at 8 p. m. and a Saturday performance at 2:30. Admission 
is free. 

Any college folksingers inter- 
ested in participating in the 
Festival are urged to write to 
Dr. Ben W. Griffith, Mercer 
University, Macon, Georgia. 
Dormitory rooms will be made 

What a way to bust up a parade! 


Volleyball Team 
Takes Second 

Intercollegiate volleyball, ten- 
nis, and table tennis highlighted 
the Sportsday at the University 
of Georgia April 10. Making up 
the NGC volleyball team were 
Linda Carter, Judy Pace, Brow- 
nie Lee, Ellen Burriss, Joe Jean 
Magoon, Brenda Roberts, Sue 
Seabolt and Laura Freeman. 

Participating against such 
schools as Winthrop, Gulf Coast, 
Furman, University of Georgia, 
Mercer, and North Greenville, 
the team placed second in the 
event. They were defeated only 
in their last game. 

Susan Schrader and Louise 
Lamback represented NGC in 
the tennis matches, and Laura 
Freeman competed in the table 
tennis tournament.

Summer Schedule 

A schedule of courses for 
Summer Term 1965 has been re- 
leased. Basic English, science, 
business, mathematics and edu- 
cation courses will be offered 
both sessions. One home eco- 
nomics course will be offered 
first session. However, no class 
will be organized with less than 
ten students enrolled. 

If you need to make up any 
courses or would like to gradu- 
ate early, now is the time to 
plan your summer schedule. 

Smallest of Many 

Tucked away in the immense 
headquarters of the U. S. De- 
partment of Health, Education 
and Welfare in Washington is 
the Vocational Rehabilitation 
Administration — one of the 
smallest organs of our $100 bil- 
lion government. VRA's size be- 
lies the profoundly good effect 
that it has upon the lives of 
hundreds of Dhousands of handi- 
capped people — young and 

It is estimated that 70 per 
cent of these rehabilitated hand- 
icapped citizens were gainfully 
employed for the first time in 
their lives. VRA expects that 
these people will pay back in 
taxes, $5 to $7 for every dollar 
expended for their training and 
assistance. Moreover, they will 
be off the welfare rolls. 

Dr. Ben W. Griffith, director 
and founder of tihe festival, 
said the informal songfest is 
"among the oldest collegiate 
folk festivals in the country, 
having started before the re- 
cent boom in folk music." 

The Mercer festival special- 
izes in traditional folksongs and 
blue-grass-type instrumeiitals. 
No amplified instruments are 
used. Informal workshops and 
playing sessions are held dur- 
ing the weekend. 

Although the list of perfor- 
mers is far from complete, some 
of the singers expected for the 

festival are Ted Brock, the Mad- 
rigals, the Don-Jets, the Kins- 
men, Tut Taylor's Bluegrass 
Band, the Emory Bluegrass 
Band, Alfred Willingham, Betty 
Baker, Mrs. Mike Briles (the 
former Miss Jeannie Haines), 
Mrs. Walter Brown, Jane Shaw, 
and a singing group from Geor- 
gia State College.

WPLO Plays 
Georgia State 

Traditionally the voice of col- 
lege students has been heard 
through campus newspapers and 
magazines. One progressive col- 
lege in Atlanta literally has its 
"voice" heard every week day 
afternoon through its own radio 
programs. Its music and news 
is frequently heard by North 
Georgia students in the chow 
hall during supper. The station 
is WPLO-FM, broadcasting from 
facilities located at Georgia 
State College. 

Since last October Georgia 
State has broadcasted news and 
music from its studio at Geor- 
gia State. The project is coor- 
dinated by student manager Ed 
Sheahan. The D. J.'s and an- 
nouncers are Georgia State 
students. These students receive 
special instruction on announ- 
cing from Mr. Sheahan, who has 
his own radio program on 

The station is sponsored by 
Georgia State College and 
Plough, Inc. No commercial ad- 
vertising is done, but public 
service announcements are 
made. News items come from 
WPLO news service, but all 
broadcasts are compiled by the 
students. All areas of news are 
covered from international to 
local, including school news. 
Recently a political science 
class has been added to the 
expanding program log.

The orientation was designed 
to familiarize the Cadets with 
the duties, responsibilities, and

Nike Wanders Off 

A Nike anti-aircraft missile 
being installed in front of Me- 
morial hall was discovered on 
Friday morning, May 7, on the 
lawn of Captain Blanton. 

Inquiries by the Bugler failed 
to turn up any explanation of 
how such a strange and mys- 
terious phenomenon could have 
occurred. It was noted, however, 
that in the past large pieces of 
ordnance left lying about the 
compus which are not nailed 
(or chained) down have had a 
very definite tendancy to wan- 
der, possibly as a result of local 
climatic conditions.

dorm will be a new, separate facility to house 250 cadets. 

A new feature of the Cadet 
dorm will be private rooms for 
the staff on a separate wing. A 
lounge for relaxation will be 
built on each floor, with the 
main lobby on the second floor. 
Rooms in the three-floor build- 
ing will be furnished approxi- 
mately the same as the rooms 
in Gaillard Hall and will meas- 
u.-e 12'/4 by 13 feei for each 
double room. 

Tre Lewis Hall extension will 
feature all new and modern 
rooms. Approximately I2V4 by 
14 feet, the rooms will be furn- 
ished with day-beds whioh can 
be pulled out at night. This will 
allow for more open floor space 
in the center of the room. Each 
girl will have her own desk, 
dresser, mirror, bookshelves, and 
closet with storage area above 
the closet.

The latest report concerning 
the Lumpkin County Courthouse 
. — one of the oldest in the state 
— came with a recommendation 
from Governor Carl Sanders. 

Since all the offices have been 
moved to the new, modern 
building north of town. Gov. 
Sanders recommended that the 
old building be locked up until 
the time at which it can be 
used as a state museum. This 
has been done, contrary to ru- 
mors that it would be rented 
for office space or used as a 
warehouse. Along with the rec- 
ommendation the Governor has 
promised to ask the General 
ting the annex with Lewis Hall Assembly next year for SlOO,- 

will feature two more phones, 
connected to a central switch- 
board at the main desk. This 
will mean that all phones will 
be answered at the desk. A new 
inter-com system will be instal- 
led in both parts of the buildif-^g 
and laundry facilities will be 
located on the ground floor.

Can A Student Council Work? 


"The students of North Georgia College believe that tri 
development of character and responsibility lies in the abilil 
to govern themselves" . . . "The attitude of every student shoul 
be of cooperation with the realization that the safety and generi 
welfare of the students as a whole demand rules which may seei 
unnecessar.y to the individual; for only in this way can the Studei 
Council be effective. The Council shall keep in mind that its pu 
pose is not for the students alone but for furthering collef 
standards and tradition." — North Georgia College Student Co'Unc 
Constitution, adopted May, 1963). 

Can a student council work at North Georgia? Will the abov 
statements be used by you to gain further control over the ruh 
and regulations that affect us? 

By looking and studying and asking questions we have comi 
up with two major handicaps that the Student Council laboij 
under: (1) The Military System and (2) the lack of student inte: 
est and cooperation. 

The first is not a problem when looked at from the viewpoir 
that our Cadet officers do not have the powers that are give 
to the Council — "jurisdiction over fund raising by any studer 
■campus organization, class election, the Student Social Committe( 
and class organization." 

The second handicap is one of the members' own making - 
lack of interest and cooperation. How many of you know who th 
president of the Student Council is? Or the vice-president? 
even your own class representatives? How many time have OUl 
representatives reported to us about what is going on? 

This year we have heard of two accomplishments: (1) Th' 
canceling of the impromptu freshman class officers and the hole 
ing of another election, and (2) the request that a study be mad 
of fire escape systems in each building. These are good am 
deserve commendation, but what about the rest of the year? Thi 
quarter, only one meeting has been held and it was only afte 
a reminder was sent that we need Council officers for next year 

In the very near future an election will be held to determini 
who will serve you next year. We hope that you will give sora< 
thought and consideration to this election and do your best t( 
elect a person that will not only serve us, but will seek to extenc 
the voice of the students.

I Ballet Is Tremendous 

But What Happened to the People 


In an alien atmosphere, May 8, the Atlanta Civic Ballet des- 
ended on North Georgia's Memorial Hall Auditorium. Presented 
y the Dahlonega Woman's Club, they performed to an almost 
mpty house. Their performance was exquisite in every way. 
:ostumes, make-up and choreography showed them as hard-core 

They did six numbers, "Fan- 
ire," "Bird Suite," "Quatre 
ignettes," "Soliloquy," "Llanto 
'0 Pueblo" ('Cry of the People'), 
nd "Valse." All of the chore- 
raphy was done by Robert Bar- 
ett, Virginia Rich Barnett, and 
'arl Ratcliff, principal dancers 
f the company. The Corpe de 
allet consists of 20 young 

Under the adverse conditions 
f our slippery stage some of 
le dancing was performed 
arefooted. In "Fanfare" the au- 
lence saw bright spots of color 
s if the vigorous notes of a 
anfare were falling from a 
'ruiiipet before their eyes. 

In "Bird Suite" dancers be- 
came a swan, a bird of paradise, 
a nightingale, and a raven with 
the aid of a little appropriate 
color and by following the sug- 
gestion of the music using arms 
and body. 

"Quatre Vignettes," "Solilo- 
quy," and "Valse" were of more 
conventional choreogra phy. 
"Llanto do Pueblo" was a spe- 
cial combination of music, by 
Aaron Copeland, and Mexican 
folk tunes with costume ma- 
terial brought from Mexico. 

Atlanta has the "Met" and the 
other night NGC had the ballet. 
It is a shame more students 
could not have enjoyed it.

The Advantages of a Student at 
the NGA College 

When we attempt to enumer- 
ate the advantages gained by 
every male student who attends 
this college we find our space 
and time limited to mention 
them all. When we say advan- 
tages we mean it in the full 
sense of the word, free from 
the slightest idea of limitation. 
We are aware that this college, 
like all others, has had its ob- 
stacles and preventatives to hin- 
der its progress and advantages 
gained by young men from 
reaching the attention of many 
of Georgia's people. Yet when 
laboring with her most trying 
difficulties, and when existance 
has, so often rested partly upon 
the mercy of the representatives 
of Georgia — such men as Ool. 
W. P. Price, and others — know- 

Debates, Trees, Cannons 
Highlight NGC's History 


North Georgia College began in 1873 as North Georgia 
Agricultural College under the Federal Land Grant Act. The 
Military program, required under the Act, was instituted in 1877, 
and the Cadet Corps held its first parade on February 2, 1877. 
At this time the College had over 250 cadets enrolled and almost 
as many co-eds. When Congress established the ROTC program 
in 1916. NG.\C was the only school in Georgia able to take ad- 
vantage of the act. and the program was begun here January 1, 
1917. The name of the College was changed to North Georgia 
College in 1930. In 1933. with less than a hundred cadets attend- 
ing, the school was in danger of going out of existance. This re- 
sulted in NGC being reduced to a junior college and a program 
of revitalization carried out. The school still remained essentially 
military, however. 

(Continued on Page 6) 

ing the worth of it for Georgia's 
young men, have come with 
words and influence to its res- 
cue. When the people of our 
state begin to learn more about 
and become more acquainted 
with the location and the coun- 
try which surrounds the N. G. A. 
College, we believe that all will 
willingly insist upon its continu- 
ation and will without one dis- 
senting voice crown it the pride 
of North Georgia. Some of the 
most important advantages are: 
First. We have the best In- 

Second. The most healthy 
portion of Georgia. 

Third. Located in a prohibit- 
ion county. 

Fourth. No existing influence

The last and most important 
of all, a young man, with limited 
means can get an education 
equal to that furnished by any 
institution in the state. These, 
with many others we might men- 
tion, which are of vital impor- 
tance just at this stage of our 
history, when many young men 
and girls are wrestling to get 
an education. 

We wish to say in consider- 
ation of the above facts that no 
college can claim to have made 
more progress in the last two 
years than has this. 

We only hope that under the 
wise supervision of its Wgrthj' 
President. I. W. Waddell, D.D., 
that it will continue to progress 
in proportion as it has for the 
last two or three years.

moonlight evenings with a young 
lady, a classmate of mine, on 
purpose to view and envision 
nature's handiwork. I am trying 
to do my duty to my class and 
am succeeding very well. I think 
it best not to study too much at 
night, as my room mate, who 
is an old student, says it is 
injurious and he never studies 
any at all by lamp light. He 
wears glasses, and is relieved 
from military duty. 

There is one young man here 
excused from military duty who 
does not wear glasses, but he 
has so much trouble preparing 
his Latin is why his eyes are 
affected. I send you my report 
for April. You see it is very 
good, I have 90 in Deportment. 
There are just ten boys in col- 
lege whos behaviour is better 
than mine. The best boy gets 
100 — the next best 99, and so 
on, I will try to be nearer the 
top next time. My mark in "Art 
of War" is 50. That is perfect 
as the art of war only goes to 
50, and it certainly takes hard 

work to get there, I am doing 
my best, and I go to church at 
least once every Sunday. I like 
the college and its faculty very 
much. All of the professors are 
able men and fully competent 
to fill their offices. The most 
wonderful man. however, con- 
nected with the institution is 
our Janitor, It is a proof that 
commission with nature will 
strengthen character. He was 
born in Union county on Coop- 
er's Creek, where there is plenty 
of nature. Just to look at him 
you would never dream of his 
extraordinary abilities. Some of 
the boys s-ay he will never be 
here again after this year. He 
is endowed with wonderful pow- 
ers of sight, and besides has the 
most retentive mind in regard 
to faces and dress, ever known. 
He will possibly go to Scotland 
Yard, London, as a detective. 
One of our Professors who is 
interested in Astronomy, wishes

What with no Holly, television 
or radio and with Gainesville 
20 miles away over dirt roads 
and automobiles not yet inven- 
ted, the students of the early 
college had to rely on their 
own resources for entertain- 
ment. Thus in the first year of 
the school's existance a debat- 
ing society was formed. Later 
two new literary and debating 
societies superceded this early 
society, the Decora Palaestra 
and the Phi Mu Societies. These 
two competed in debates often, 
and these were rather lively oc- 
casions during which feeling of- 
ten ran high. In 1901, on the 
occasion of a debate on "The 
Lady or The Tiger," a riot took 
place when the flag of the 
Decora was "hurled" into the 
dust by a member of the Phi 

In 1902. it was necessary for 
the faculty to request that the 
Mayor of Dahlonega detail three 
Marshals to preserve order dur- 
ing champion debates. The two 
societies did work together on 
occasion, one example being the 
joint effort which resulted in 
the Phi Palaestra being publish- 
ed in 1895 and for a period 
thereafter. The Phi-Palaesra was 
the second newspaper ot be pub- 
lished at NGC (the Bugler is 
the seventh, published since 
1934), and portions of the only 
known copy are included with 
this issue. They combined again 
in 1909 to publish the Dahlonega 
Collegian, a "high-toned" liter- 
ary magazine, of which there 
are three numbers available in 
the School library. Other activi- 
ties were chapters of the Sigma 
Nu (begun in 1881) and the Pi 
Kappa Alpha (begun NGAC, 
1900) fraternities. When NGC 
became a junior college, the 
■oharters of the national organiz- 
ations were withdrawn since 
they were for senior colleges 
only. REX, however, being lo- 
cal, continued and was joined 
in 1934 by Sigma Theta, which 
was formed by a group of soph- 
omores who came to NGC from 
Georgia State College for Men 
at Tifton, which had been closed

If these activities were not 
enough, the fertile minds of 
NGC students were always com- 
ing up with something new. The 
rope of the college bell was 
tied once to a local member of 
the bovine family, with resultant 
ringing at strange hours. On 
another occasion, the bell's clap- 
per disappeared and was later 
found in a hollow log. It seems 
to have been a custom around 
1906 for the graduating class to 
plant a tree on campus, where- 
upon the Juniors would attempt 
to uproot same, providing they 
could do so within 24 hours of 
its planting. Perhaps this is the 
reason there are no trees on the 
drill field. Firing a cannon 
seemed to hold promise of ex- 
citement for cadets then as now.

WASHINGTON — Spending 
on public schools has been in- 
creasing almost three times as 
fast as pupil enrollment, accord- 10:15 
ing to the Chamber of Commer- 
ce of the United States. 

In the last decade enrollment 
increased 43 per cent, while 
spending rose 157 per cent. 

About 95 per cent of the in- 
creased spending came from 
local and state taxes and bonds. 
Five per cent came from the 
federal government.

Frog Views NGC As 
One Week Veteran 

The scenery is beautiful. Wish I had time to look at it. 

Put that room in order by tomorrow? We haven't had five 
minutes to ourselves yet! President Hoag was right on college night 
when he told us we'd always have something to do. 

They call us frogs because of our green 'suits. We've hollered 
and growled so much all we can do is croak, ' anyway. 

They're teaching us respect. Everybody calls Everybody in 
another class "Mister." Upper classmen call us Mr. Frog. 

It's grea: the way these upper classmen give us individual 
attention. Like the other day, they assembled us on the drill field, 
a.Td the upper classmen came and asked each one of us lots of 
personal questions, so they could learn about our background 
and help us out better, it went like: "What's your name. Cadet?" 

"New Cadet Elwood Suggins, Sir." 

"I can't hear you." 

"New Cadet Soiggins, Six!" 

"Talk bigger!" 


"What kind of deoderant do you use?" 

"Ban, Sir!!" 

"Tell me you're a frog." 

"I'm a frog!" 

"Louder! Yell Tm a slimy green frog'!" 


"Now croak" 


This system is especially good, because I heard that at other 
colleges, the upper classmen acted real superior and looked down 
their noses a; the freshmen. Gee, I like it here!

System With A 

Purpose - ""New Regime"' 

Here we go again. Another year, new faces, and the "New 
Regime." Yes, it seems that things have changed some while we 
were away this summer. We were met last week by seniors in 
new shiny gold braid and some senior NCO's, all with the deter- 
mination to really make this year a good one. 

Their plan? An effec ive honor system, in class as well as out 
of class. A well-trained freshman class, A well-run, efficient, work- 
able "system," including a new way of doing things in the Chow 
Hall. And it seems that Lewis Hall followed their lead, with new 
regulations and a well-placed emphasis on following these rules. A 
lot of us said, "Whoa! Wait a minute. What's wrong with the old 
way?" A lot of us balked, at first, at being ruled and regulated 
till we said we had no freedom and cried, "Gestapo!" 

But is this "New Regime" really so new? The Chow Hall was 
operated almost ;his same way before its remodling in 1963. The 
Lewis Hall rules are simply modifications and enforcement of 
rules long found in the Rule Book. And the enmphasis on getting 
t'.ie job done right and doing it efficiently — well, that's not any- 
where near being "new." What is new about this year at NGC is the 
determination, purpose and drive that has inspired this campus 
this fall. It's high time we had this type of "New Regime" and it's 
what NGC needs to build itself into a really great school. 

Our only other comment is a hope that every student on this 
campus will not only support the seniors and their "New Regime" 
but will adopt some of its determination and purpose. 

Fellowships Start 
Year With Banquets 

Judging from the response given to the opening Sunday 
program of B. S. U. (Baptist Student Union), the organization is 
expecting one of its most successful and meaningful years. Approx- 
imately two hundred B. S. U. members attended this get acquaint- 
ed banquet, for fun and fellowship. 

The B. S. U. is the Baptist-oriented group for college students. 
Various activities are planned for the coming months, under the 
leadership of Mr. John Wortham, B. S. U. director. The future 
agenda will include a drama on heritage, a film studying com- 
munism, interesting programs presented by a student from Ghana 
and a missionary in Chile, plays, and a variety of panel discussions. 
The B. S. U., which meets at 5:30 on Sunday evenings, also spon- 
sors Vespers, a simple religious meditation service. 

Forthcoming B. S. U. officers are: President, Marilyn Patrick; 
Vice-president, P. Miller; and Secretary, Nancy Vickery.

Rats Sign for Rec Clubs 

As every Freshman girl knows, the Rat hat she is spotting 
represents her interest in the Women's Recreation Clubs on 
campus. Each 'freshman picks the club she wishes to join after 
the "Skit Night" presentation, and may participate actively in 
any of the club's activities following Rat Day. 

Four clubs make up the Rec 
Council. The Hippolytans are REX

and we ain't goin' to have no slugs in the geyserl" 

Judy Sutton as captain, and the 
Mercureans are led by Brownie

are to provide oportunities for 
oirganized recreation for the 
coeds, just as the cadets have 
in company sports. Sports fea- 
tured include basketball, voUy- 
ball, tennis, badminton, table 
tennils, archery, and swimming. 
Intra-club activities, such as 
cookouts and aleep-outs, are 
also planned. 

Heading up all the activities 
of the clubs is the Rec Club 
Council headed by Nancy Jar- 
rard, President. Vice-prerident 
is Bonnie Kelly, Becky Trowell 
is Secretary, and Margie Crow 
serves as Treasurer. 

Rex Fraternity held its first 
meeting of the 1965-66 academic 
year, Monday October 27. 

At this first meeting a new 
secretary was chosen to replace 
the loss caused by the departure 
of the old one. By a close de- 
cision Henry Tinley was elected 
to fill the position. 

Rex plans to add a lot of 
new entertainment to the cam- 
pus this year in the way of dan- 
ces, shindigs, and parties. 

Officers of Rex are Steve

of imitation of the pronounci- 
ation from a master recording. 
The lab contains 30 booths from 
which students listed to ex- 
perts speak and then record 
their own voices. From the 
master consol as many as eight 
different programs, or master 
tapes, may be played as the 
same time. The student listens 
to the master recording and 
carefully repeats the phrase 
which is recorded on the stud- 
ent's tape. Then the student may 
listen to and erase his voice 
from the tape without erasing 
the master recording. In this 
way, each sudent sets his own 
pace for language learning. 

The master console also per- 
mits conference recording and 
oral work. As many as 30 stud- 
ents or a few as 2 may work 
together, and the teacher may 
audit their work. It is also pos- 
sible to give oral tests without 
the teacher. 

The lab concept also includes 
recorders for class use as well 
as texts to accompany the tapes. 
As Dr. Engerrand, head of the 
department stated, the great- 
est advantage to lab work is in 
the value of oral language "The 
student is not limited to just

And You Think 
You Work Too Hard! 

There aren't as many people 
working as you may have 
thoiught. At least according to a 
recent survey. 

The population of the United 
States is 160 million, but there 
are 62 million over 60 years of 
age, leaving 98 million to do the 
work. People under 21 years 
of age total 54 million, which 
leaves 44 million to work. 

Then there are 21 million 
who are emiployed by the 
Government, and that leaves 23 
million to do the work. 10 mil- 
lion are in the Armed Forces, 
leaving 13 million to get the 
work done. Deduct 12,800,000 
who are employed by the State 
and City Offices, and the num- 
ber would be 200,000 to do the 
work. There are 188 thousand 
in hospitals, insane asylums, 
etc., and that leaves 12 thous- 
and to do the woirk. 

Now it may interest- you to 
know that there are 11,998 
people in jail, so that leaves 
just two people to do the work. 
And that is you and me, broth- 
er, and I am getting tired of 
doing everything myself.

N. G. C. Finds Gold 
In 'Gold Rush Days' 

There's gold in Dahlonega! So say two lucky and talented 
NGC Cadets. Cadet Robert Sweatt and Cadet Bob Page both 
received cash awards for their participation in two separate 
events in Dahlonega's annual celebration of its yellow hills. 

Cadet Sweatt tied for first 
place in the "hog calling" event. 
Sweatt, a senior, admitted that 
he had never been involved in 
such competition before, and ad- 
ded that he had never even 
called hogs. However, the judges 
ruled that due to the clarity and 
tone of voice, coupled with gen- 
uine hog appeal, Sweatt posses- 
sed all the qualities required of 
an authenic mountain hog caller. 

The second honor retrieved 
from the festivities was also a 
tie for first place. The event 
was "buck dancing". Cadet Bob 
Page was judged to be one of 
the most outstanding perform- 
ers in the event, and was second 
only to a young lady from the 
Dahlonega area. Cadet Page, a

The Almighty Student Dollar 

The Comptroller's Office last week issued a notice to all 
student organizations requesting that all purchases made in 
Dahlonega be on a cash basis. This seems to be a reasonable 
request, since organizations change from year to year amd bills 
are too often left over and go unpaid. 

However, we do have one complaint in this area. Since we 
students are paying cash, we have the right to request to get 
what we pay for. Simply because we HAVE to make purchases 
in Dahlonega and patronize the various businesses does NOT 
mean that we have to put up with poor service and attitudes. 

Very few businesses in Dahlonega are guilty of this; on the 
whole, Dahlonega is warm and friendly to students, and the busi- 
ness people are almost always anxious to be of help. However, 
sometimes the service IS poor and it almost seems to us that 
some Dahl'onegans don't seem to care aibout our business simply 
because they know they have a "captive audience:" 

If this happens, we can do something about it. First, let's 
make sure our complaint is well-founded and that we aren't 
taking advantage of the kindness of local merchants. Then, if the 
problem still exists, we cam take our business elsewhere. Ebccept 
for a few types of businesses, Dahlonega has at least two of every 
kind of business. By showing our appreciation to merchants 
who are willing to help and welcome us we can also show our 
displeasure to those few who have given us poor service simply 
because we have "nowhere else to go." We do have other places 
to go — and we can go there. 

Speaking Out 

We didn't say this last time, but it needs to be said. During 
the next nine months the BUGILER will be commenting in this 
space on various issues and questions on campus. That's why 
this column is called simply, "Comment." We are not aking the 
student body and faculty to agree with us - our function as a news- 
paper is to bring out these issues and hope disagreement and discus- 
aioa will result. Oiu- only purpose is to tell the truth and to help 
wake up the all-powerful apathy that keeps many of us from 
thinking, questioning, evaluating and acting. 

So if you don't agree, if we say something that makes you 
mad, if you DO agree, if you want to tell us something you 
think is important — let us know. The Bugler welcomes letters, 
on any topic of interest to fhe student body and campus as a 
whole. All letters should be signed, but we'll omit names for 
publication when desired. We do reserve the right to edit any 
letter to conform to the rules oif taste and good English usage 
and space available. Drop any letters in The Bugler Box in the 
Canteen, or in Box 5779. 

And even if you're a letter writer, please stop and consider 
what we say here. We think it's worth your time or we wouldn't 
say it. 

Cadet Questions Canteens 


Recently there has been a tremendous amount of discussion 
concerning canteen facilities in the cadet dormitories. The vending 
machines that were initially proposed to be installed this yeai 
to replace the dormitory canteens have encountered some diffi 
culties and will not be in operation until next fall quarter. These 
machines will be ideal but they do not, however, solve the present 
problem. If one examines the situation objectively, the solution 
is inevitable — they should be reopened until the needed instal- 
lations are complete. 

After examining the major points of dispute concerning the 
reopening of these dormitory canteens, I would like to present 
four areas which deserve attention: No. 1 — Lewis Hall still| 
retains its canteen facilities. No. 2 — To insure honesty withini 
these canteens, checks could be conducted at any time to ex- 
amine the stock as well as the purchasing books; No. 3 — Break 
has been arranged this year to insure the tranquility of studyi 
hall; No. 4 — Cadets may not or are reluctant to sign out duringl 
quarters to go to the college canteen because this constitutes 
a "night out," and sophomores are only allowed one night a week, 
juniors — two. 

These four considerations should help illustrate how the situ- 
ation actually exist. I feel the cadets should be allowed to con- 
tinue to operate the canteens for the remainder of the year. The 
conveniences they will offer are definitely needed, and this state- 
ment can be verified by any of the cadets. No member of the 
Cadet Corps has, as yet, been asked about the necessity, and I 
feel a re-examination of this need is in order.

Resentment with a Cadence 

■I look over the company formation ... it is the year of 

ie new order. On the surface it has not changed — 80 plus men, 

^ ) plus problems. But it is different this year. There is resentment. 

ssentment between classes and of the new system of doing things. 

The new freshman do not un- 

p jrstand, they feel the discipline 
at not as did last year's 
•eshman, now sophomores. In 
le sophomore class lies the 

* rst of the problems from their 
oint of view. Correctly, they 
ave felt the pinch of the new 
rder. No rank higher than cor- 

*oral, yet worst of all they 

!el the freshman should be 

■eated as they once were. But 
, is interesting to note also 

ow short sighted they are in 

leir view of rank. From the 

:andpoint now of the num- 
t er of juniors now on contract 

nd will be going to summer 

amp, the rank situation of this 

lass will be amply rewarded. 

• The juniors also have their 
roblems. Seniors coming back 
rem camp now hold their once 
hoiee and key positions on 

' ampus. The highest ranking 
unior holds four stripes, and 
ae feeling of a closeness to 
ae senior class they sate, has 
een lost due to the loss of tie 
ositions. Little do they realize 
tiat these positions were crea""- 
d by the military for the ex- 
ress purpose of giving all 
ontract seniors command posi- 
ions pior to entrance into the 
egular army. They will find 
his helpful and fully realize the 
alue upon returning from sum- 
ler camp. Rank will be good

Rock Eagle SGEA Conference 

Rock E^gle 4<H Center at Eatonton, Georgia, was the scene of 
he SGEA Conference on October 7, 8 and 9. The two student 
epresentatives from North Georgia College were Carolyn Kittle, 
nd Vicki Gentry. The girls were accompanied by Mrs. Marian 
Souffard, adviser to the NGC Chapter. 
Carolyn attended a workshop constitution to the group. 

the effort it takes. 

Perhaps the sudtlest prob- 
lem is to be found in the senior 
class. The new distinction be- 
tween the N.C.O.'s and the offi- 
cers. With over bearing details 
and problems with stiffer dis- 
cipline then granted to a fresh- 
man, the class is blessed with 
an Officer's Club of parliamen- 
tary chaos and harrassed atten- 
dence, and a extra detail for 
N.C.O.'s called B.D.O. 

Run:ning a line company with 
this in mind is difificult. The 
nearest solution is to run the 
unit strictly on a rank basis and 
destruction of the burdensome 
class system. With a few ex- 
ceptions it can be no other way. 
The changes have been resented. 
"What about my priveliges" I 
hear. True, a senior private 
who has been up here four 
years deservese extra priveliges 
and for the most part .he gets 
them still. However, it should be 
remembered that he doesn't 
wear a gold hat ban, or have 
the duties and the responsibil- 
ities that go with it. He should 
not rate the same, but in equity 
of the contribu ion he makes to 
the unit. 

These changes this year have 
been discussed, cursed, ap- 
plaued and valued, . . . they

Sigma Theta Expands Project 

This year Sigma Theta is working to surpass all previous work 
done by past fraternities. This will be done mainly by its members 
and officers composed of: Jim Melton, president; Mickey Bennett, 
vice-president; Tommy Glisson, secretary; and Ralph Colley, 
treasurer. Prof. Belcher will serve as adviser. 

Already, Sigma Theta has started the year off by electing 
Miss Kay Gates as fraternity sweetheart. Also, this month the 
fraternity plans to contribute to the needy families in the sur- 
rounding area for Thanksgiving, in addition to planning a dance 
with Rex Fraternity which will be opemed to the entire student 
body. Each month a new project will be initiated to better not 
only North Georgia College, but the surrounding area as well. 

Blood Bank Announced By Frats 

By Henry Tinley 

In the past Rex Fraternity has maintained a blood bank. This 
year we plan to build this blood bank even moreso than in the 
past. Approximately nine donors have been secured or will be 
secured each month of the school year. Arrangements have been 
made with Hall County Hospital to take and store the donatioins. 
The faculty and the student body will be the only eligible reci- 
pients of these donations when they enter Hall County Hospital. 

Rex Fraternity, last winter 
quarter, began a new school- 
fraternity project. It was hoped 
that Rex Fraternity could secure 
the Community Center and by 
charging only fifty cents stag or 
drag, would be able to maintain 
local sock-hops or weekend 
dances. These dances would be 
on Saturday afternoon and eve- 
ning. Small local bands would 
provide the music for the stu- 
dents. This would enable the 
student body to have some 
worth-while way to spend the 
weekend. However, because 
there was little support of this 
project by the students. Rex 
Fraternity has chosen to put 
it up to the student body to de- 
cide if they approve of such an 
idea. If you are in agreement 
with this idea of a weekend 
dance and if you think it would 
be supported, drop Rex a note 
and let them have your opinion 
or opinions, Box 5332, NGC. 

Dr. Feelgood and 
Interns Play For 
Open Dance 

On November 13 Sigma Theta 
and Rex Fraternities will pre- 
sent Dr. Feelgood and the In- 
terns to the student body of 
North Georgia College. The 
dance will be held in the up- 
per part of the dining hall to 
all who wish to come. The 
price will be two dollars stag 
or two dollars drag. 

Future plans have been made 
by the frats to schedule such 
people as Otis Redding, Maurice 
Williams and the Zodiacs, and 
James Brown, if the dance 
proves to be a success. 



Bravo Falls To 
"C" Powerhouse 

In the second game Saturday, 
Charlie served notice it would 
be one of the teams to beat 
this year, as it defeated Bravo 
29 - 12. Cross took the (jpening 
kickoff at the Charlie 5 yard 
line and ran the ball back 95 
yards for the touchdown. 
The extra point by Patterson 
was good and Charlie led 7 - 0. 
Bravo, still stunned by the open- 
ing play, fumbled on its first 
set of downs, and four plays 
la er, Evans scored again for 
Charlie on a twenty-five yard 
run. The extra point was good. 
Now Bravo dug in and started 
a drive of its own. Fine runs 
by Vaughn and Bufford carried 
Bravo to the Charlie ten yard 
line where a fumble cost them 
the ball, and at half time Char- 
lie led 14 - 0. 

Charlie came out in the third 
quarter, wanting more points. 
They capitalized on a touch- 
back and then scored again as 
Evens caught a pass and scamp- 
ered across the goal. The extra 
point was blocked by Champion, 
and the score was 22 - 0. In the 
fourth quarter. Bravo came 
roaring back. On a reverse play, 
Benson turned the corner and 
ran twenty-five yards for the 
Bravo touchdown. They tried 
to run the ball for the extra 
point, but failed. 

Bravo then kicked to Charlie 
who fumbled on the seven, and 
Bravo recovered. Bufford took 

the ball on the next play and 
scored for Bravo. The extra 
point failed and the score was 
22 - 12. Charlie was not to be 
outdone, however, as Patterson 
passed to Florence for the final 
score of the game. Patterson 
faked a kick and ran for the 
extra point and the final score 
was 29 - 12. 

Outstanding players for Char- 
lie were: Patterson, Cross, 
Evens, Caldwell, and Florence: 
for Bravo; Vaughn, Bufford, 
Benson, Glisson, Holland, and 

F-Troop Downs 
Delta Dogs 

Despite the hot noonday sun, . 
Delta and Foxtrot collided in a 
game which was dominated pri- 
marily by the defenses of both 
teams. Delta received the kick- 
tfff, but fumbled on the first two 
plays. The second fumble 
proved to be costly since Adair, 
who recovered the ball for Delta, 
was tackled behind the goal 
line for a touchback, and Fox- 
trot led in the opening minutes 
of the game 2 - 0. Then the 
defenses took over with neither 
team able to get its offense 
moving. Except for two field 
goal attempts by Foxtrot, there 
were few offensive highlights 
and at half-time, the score re- 
mained 2 - 0. 

The second half proved to be 
a little different, as both teams 
picked up momentum. Cameron 
made several good runs after 
the kickoff, going deep into 
Delta territory, and finally 

Pierce carried the ball over for 
the Foxtrot score. The extra 
point was missed and F-Troop 
led 8 - 0. Once again the de- 
fenses dug in and the ball 
moved bark and forth. Then 
Johnson intercepted a Foxtrot 
pass and Delta, behind the hard 
running of Taylor, moved to- 
ward scoring position. Foxtrot 
stopped them once more, how- 
ever, and regained possession of 
the football. Gradually, as the 
game drew to an end. Foxtrot 
mustered one more drive and 
Cameron scored on a pass from 
Miller. The touchdown was an- 
nihilated, however, because of a 
penalty, but Cameron was not 
to be denied. Four plays later, 
he crashed off tackle for the 
final score of the game. The 
extra point was blocked and 
Foxtrot led 14 - 0. 

Outstanding players for Delta 
were Johnson, Mitchell, Tinley, 
McLaughlin, and Taylor; for 
Foxtrot, Cameron, Pierce, Kel- 
ly, and Kohlenberger.

Alfa Triumphs, Downs Golf 14- 6 
In Tough Gridiron Battle 

Football season at North Georgia College opened today in 
traditional fashion as Alfa locked horns with Golf in a tough grid- 
iron battle. Even before the game, the frenzy was high as Alfa's 
flag was stolen just before the kickoff. After the initial shock 
had worn off, the game started. 

The blocking and tackling in 
the first quarter were fierce, but 
Alfa drew first blood. On fourth 
down, Wiley faked a punt and 
passed to Brooks Brown who 
scampered forty yards for the 
touchdown. The extra point 
by Turgeon was good and Alfa 
led 7 - 0. On the kickoff. Golf 
moved gradually up field but 
fumbled, and Postell recovered 
for Alfa. Then the stalemate 
began as the defenses tightened. 
Near the end of the half, Brown 
caught a Wiley pass at the Alfa 
twenty and scampered to the 
Golf thirty before he was finally 
brought down. Four plays later, 
a field goal attempt failed and 
at the half, Alfa led 7 - 0. 

The second half proved to be 
no different from the first. After 
fine runs by Quinn, Roberts, 
and Posey, Golf was finally 
halted and had to punt. The 
punt proved to be a bad one, 
going only ten yards and Alfa 

once more was in scoring posi- 
tion. Haley carried the load 
and after two fine runs, he 
sped eight yards for Alfa's se- 
cond touchdown. Turgeon kicked 
the extra point and Alfa led 
14 ■ 0. 

Then in the final quarter, 
Golf took over. After long gains 
by Quinn and Harden, Roberts 
carried the pigskin over for the 
score. The extra point was 
blocked and the score was 14 - 6. 
As the game drew near an end, 
Golf moved once m(we toward 
the goal, but an intercepted pass 
proved to be their downfall and 
the game ended with Alfa as the 
victor, 14 - 6. 

Outstanding players for Go\t 
were Quinn, Harden, Posey, 
Roberts and Brinkman; for Alfa: 
Haley, Brown, Payne, Bryant, 
and Herring.

Construction Begins 
LB J Texas Library 

AUSTIN, Texas (OPS) — Con-1 
struction plans are underway for 
the Lyndon B. Johnson Library 
at the University of Texas. 

The fourth presidential li- 
brary, it will be the first to have 
been planned and constructed 
during a president's term in 

W. W. Heath, chairman of the 
Texas board olf regents, said the 
regents hoped to select an ar- 
chitect at the November meet- 
ing of the board. 

The library was spared any 
delay when Congress passed a 
resolution by Texas Rep. Jack 
Brooks which waived a 60-day 
waiting period before construc- 
tion plans could begin. 

According to federal lay, the 
president files his proposal with 
Congress and if, within 60 days 
neither the House or Senate ob- 
jects, construction of such a ar- 
chival depository will proceed. 

Brooks said he sought to 
waive the rule since Congress 
might adjourn before the time 
is up and the construction would 
be delayed until next session. 

According to a proposal of 
the Texas regents, the university 
will provide a 14-acre site and 
construct the building at its ex- 
pense. In the proposal submit- 
ted to the President, the board 
said the university would "de- 
sign, construct, furnish, and 
equip" the library, which will 
contain "not less than 100,000 
square feet of space. 

Upon completion of the buil- 
ding, the university will turn 
over the library to the federal 
government, but the school it- 
self will retain the title. 

The library will be "adminis- 
tered, operated, protected, main- 
tained, and staffed" at the ex- 
pense of the federal govern- 
ment. It will receive about $200,- 
OOO a year to cover these ex- 

The site selection, the archi- 
tect, and the library design, are 
subject to the approval of Presi- 
dent Johnson.

Rec Club skits were performed for the freshmen Rats on 
Wednesday evening, Octolber 6 in Memorial Hall. The skits were 
to introduce the Rats to the four Rec clubs on campus. 

The Hipps presented scenes of 
NGC including a mimic of the 
freshman talent show and an

The Mercs proved to be the 
best secret agents for the fam- 
ous Jane Blonde, 006.

Discipline Should be a 

The word 'discipline' has many different meanings. Basically 
in the military it means doing what you know to be right, 
wthout being told to do it or watched to see that it is dotie. 
This intangible state results from good leadership and training. 
Discipline is what keeps a man on the job under pressure when 
the "sma'-t" thing to do would be to get out from under this 
pressure and save himself. This training can only be effective 
if the individual believes in what he is doing and responds 
willingly. It is doubtful that a person can be truly disciplined, 
in this sense, against his will. 

We Americans live in a relatively unregimented society. 
Years ago pioneers found little difference between their daily 
struggle for survival and fi.ghtin,L; for survival. In recent times, 
farm boys were hardy indivi'luals accustomed to a rugged, 
disciplined existence. Today, the demand is for more individual 
freedom, while our society yearns lor more laws and regimen- 
tation to protect its freedoms. A good indication of our state of 
discipline is the increase in the trimc rale, but an even better 
one is the driving (automobilel habits of our people. Here a 
person can demonstrate his hick of concern for his fellow man 
in many ways without viulaling a law, iiiul yet we have just about 
every law possible concerning driving. A person eilher practices 
good driving or he doesn't The chances of setting caught are 
very small, but on the other hand. \vc kill each weekend, in 
Georgia, about a dozen people .\nil we do I'u.^ all bec-ause we 
can't follow the rules of the L;;iiiie 


In spite of all our sopliisticaled wiapom'N. ihe lequiremeiil 
for disciplined men is still great In lad. the laclical phase of 
battle has changed lillle Psychologic, ;!!>. the demands on the 
individual may be even grealei. Iiul the foundaluin upon wliich 
this training is to he placed is lower Therefore Ihe Iraining job 
will become increasingly more iliffieull. prmided «e do not 
lower our standards, which m lurn would make our country 
less secure. As long a.s war lemaiiis as a melhod of settling 
disputes, we had better be prepared lo win it This is a 
concern which EVERY AMEKflAN should have WK had better 
lake a look at our own discipline and of Ihe S(Kiet.\ in which 
we live. It may be expedient to iet (leorge do it, " but what 
happens when we run out of enough "Cleorges' to do il 

We live in the greatest country in the world and when you 
are the "chajnp" there is always a challenger around. If your 
power to defend yourselves is decreased, then the "vultures" 
may take it from you. 

Perhaps we at North Georgia could help out by: 

1. Taking a new look at the big picture of life and our 
position in it. 

2. Practice the Golden Rule. 

3. Ask nol what our country can do for us, but what we 
can do for our country. 

4. Take full advantage of our opportunities for learning 
and training here at N.G.C.

NGC Grad Sees Viet Nam 

By Lt. ThomM Splght, Claw of '63 
(83r(f Ord. C*, KorM> 

You know, every time I read altout American people having 
demonstrations, riots, and protest marches became tiiey don't 
want to fight in Viet Nam, it makes me sick to my stomach and 
ashamed of my Country's peoirie. "Freedom is a fine thing as 
long as I don't have to suffer or work for it. Let someone else 
do it! I'll gladly enjoy all the rights and privileges and benefits 
of a free nation, but don't ask me to fight or die to protect it!" 
Every time I read about another demonstration, or another mother 
writing letters to the paper, Or a cove .age like the one CBS gave 
to the "Students for a Democratic Society to disrupt the Selective 
Service System," it makes me so mad I can't see straight. I think 
Bhat the unwarranted and 'disgraceful campaign to encourage the 
youth to avoid military service in Viet Nam should only be con- 
sidered as conspiracy against the U. S. government and as such 
should be punishable as a federal offence. Boy, anybody who 
mters or encourages such action can only be someone who Ihas 
•egard for duty, honor or their country. This is what makes me 
'urious. I just heard on the radio today, ten thousand people 
narched in New York to protest Viet Nam, and three thousand 
n Berkley, iCalifornia tried to march to Oakland Army Terminal 
;where personnel leave the State.'^ fo? Vie* Nam). What is wrong 
mih these people? 

And you know wihat makes 
me ashamed? This last week, 
•this little peninsula, about as 
big as the state of Indiana, sent 
its "Tiger" Division to Viet 
Nam. The Republic of Korea 
'sent 20 thousand of their very 
finest fighting men to Viet Nam 
to fight for freedom, and you 
know what else? The whole 
country just took several days 
out of life and had many cele- 
brations and festivals to honor 
I the departing soldiers. 

They had great parades and a 
real hero's send-off for their 
Division. This little country, a- 
ibout as big as one state, sends 
20 thousand of their very best 
md they are very glad to have

Drama Club Plans Coward's "Spirit" 

Practice began last week for 
the Drama Club's presentation 
of the three-act play, ."Blithe 
Spirit," scheduled for December. 
Mrs. Sherry Fuller, a graduate 
of the University of Georgia, is 
the new Drama Club director, 
and her plans for the year in- 
clude one-act play9 and two full- 
length presentations. 

Contrary to some rumors, the 
Drama Club is mot limited to 

those students interested in act- 
ing. Make-up, scenery, and pub- 
licity are essential to any pro- 
doiction and volunteers are need- 
ed in all of these areas. 

This year, the Club plans to 
attend various functions connec- 
ted with the theatre. Anyone 
interested in joining the Drama 
Club should see Mrs. F^iller in 
the English Department.

Here and There — 
The Student Council and Berkley 

We have a question — What ever happened to the Student 
Council? Mention the Student Council to most students and they 
throw up their hands, shake heads, and say, "I knew it wouldn't 
work here." 

We'll admit, the Council has had its share of handicaps — 
sicknes, drop-outs, and most of all, an appalling lack of inter- 
est or willingness to help on the part of the campus as a whole. 
And that's a big handfull to fight. But our question is this — 
why just admit defeat and quit? There are some people on this 
campus — we on the Bugler, for example, who are ready 
to work with and for the Council. We fought for it long enough. 
But there seems to be no leadership, no interest, and a general 
detfeatist attitude on the part of the MEMBERS of the Council. Ask 
for news, ask about meetings, ask about class elections (which 
haven't been held yet) ask about activtities and plans and you 
get no answer. You get a "what can we do?" look and another 
throwing up of hands. 

K the Council idea is really defeated, if the Council is a 
flop, we hope someone will have the gumption to admit it. We'd 
almost rather see that than the all-consuming apathy that keeps 
anything from being done, one way or the other. 

On the other hand, if the Council does still exist, and there are 
some people who are willing to work for it, then we'd like to 
know that, too. We still think the iCouncil idea will work at NGC 
and we want somebody to Ihelp us prove we're right. 

Elsewhere in this isue is a letter that really got to us when 
W€ read it. It was written by an NGC graduate to his parents. 
We only wish we had enough copies to distribute on campus, in the 
U. S. and abroad. 

It was just after reading this letter that we noticed a news 
clipping in the Canteen, complete with a picture of a leader 
of an anti-Viet Nam movement, saying that the International Red 
Cross would be sending supplies to the Viet Cong. We're sure all 
those who read this were as astonished and ashamed as we were. 

What is the national sickness, the appalling disease that has 
affected not only the demonstrators at Berkley but an organiza- 
tion like the Red Cross? What is wrong with a country who sees 
nothing wrong with flagearant disobedience of civil law? We are, 
by no means, supporting all-out war in Viet Nam, and neither 
are we denying the services the Red Cross has performed for 
our service men. 

What we are saying is simply that it is the duty, the respon 
sibility, the privilcdge of every citizen of the U. S. to support 
the government of his nation. Governments are human, they make 
mistakes. But once committed, we cannot back down. We ara in 
Viet Nam as a nation, not as a group of committed individuals. 
We are at war, and we have a very real enemy. We cannot allow 
those with this "sickness" to interfere with our national defense. 

We at NGC are close enough to the situation to be able to 
see the real meaning, the real committment. Our friends, class- 
mates, husbands, brothers are fighting in Viet Nam. How close are 
the rioting Berkley students? Or the leaders of the reactionary 
movement? For once, we at NGC are united for something. We can 
stand for something. We can make ourselves beard. We cannot 
afford not to. 

Dew £ditor: 

A •enior sees many changes around campus. There are tun: 
nt)^ Ilcilities 'Wlhich the students are supposed, to be able ti 
use tAii can not. 

Take for instance the rule set up by a Cadet" that onlj 
contx'act ^leniors can use the student lounge in the chow hall. l! 
this is right, then a '^Cadet" has the right to say that only cer 
tain people can sit in the new lounges of Dunlap Hall or in the 
lobby of Memorial Hall. 

The money used to build these buildings has, for the mos 
part., comes from the taxes paid by our parents to state govern 
ment. Not just the parents of contract students pay these taxes 
The priviledge of being able to sit in these lounges should bi 
extended to everyone. This is what they were built for. 

Unwritten rules seem to be "in" this year, especially thos< 
that apply to a few. Then there arises the question of autHorit) 
taken by people who just "decide" they want to make rules. How 
ever, it does seem to us as if senior priviledges (however fe» 
they may be) should be for all seniors, officers, NCCs, non- 
contract seniors and co-eds.

Alfa Eases By Echo On Extra Point 

Alfa's football team, under the coaching of Rusty Hightower, 
spoiled Echo Company's debut Saturday in a hard fought game. 
The first half of the game was dominated primarily by the de- 
fenses of both teams. Both teams moved the ball into scoring 
position, but it was Echo who capitalized on this field position. 
Late in the second quarter, Gaines caught a Hacket pass and 
raced twenty-five yards for the score. Bailey attempted the extra 
point but it was blocked, and Echo led at half time, 6-0. 
Alfa came out at, half time 

fired up and on the kickoff, 
moved the ball steadily down 
field. After the ball was ex- 
changed on consecutive fumbles, 
Alfa regained possession of the 
bal, and Haley caught a pass 
on a fake punt and scampered 
deep into Echo territory. Two 
plays later, Haley scored for 
Alfa. Turgeon kicked the extra 
point, and this proved to be the 
turning point of the game, since 
neither team could score again. 
At the end of the game, Alfa 
led 7-6. 

Outstanding players for Alfa 
were: Herring, Haley, Ramey, 
Payne and Bryant; for Echo:

NOVEMBER 23, 1965 


We believe that the War in Viet Nam is part of a geneiral 
Communist effort to dominate all of Southeast Asia. 

We believe that the cause of the war rests clearly with 
the Communist leaders in Hanoi, Peking, and among the 
Viet Cong. 

We believe that the so<alled "peace demonstrators" who 
are opposing our role in Viet Nam are encouraging the 
Communists to continue their aggiressive actions in South 
Viet Nam, arid, in turn, all of Southeast Asia. 

We believe that the overwhelming maiority of young 
Americans join us in supporting the efforts of our govern- 
ment to oppose Communist aggression rn Viet Nam. 

I (EDITOR'S NOTE): This statement will be posted in the 
'::anteen with room for student signatures and endorsements. The 
'results will be sent to the Student Committee for the Defense 
>f Viet Nam. 

>ear Editor: 

' The college-aged students of the United States have been 
)adly criticized iin recent months for their attitude toward the 
/ietnam issue. This criticism has resulted from the unfortunate 
vide-spread publicity given to the small, noisy minority of stud- 
ents who have, been opposing the American defense of Vietnam. 
Consequenty, Young Republicans, Young Demoncrats, and In- 
lependents have come together to form the new bi-partisan Na- 
iooal Student Committee for the Defens of Vietnam. This new 
.tudent committee has no association with any extra-party political 
irganization of either the right or the left. Our sole purpose is to 
nobilize college students in a concerted program of responsible 
.ictiooi in support of American resistance to Communist aggres- 
lion in Southeast Asia. 

Specifically, we will engage in 
number of activities on the 

' ampus level. First, our cora- 
littee intends to distribute and 
oUect petitions supporting the 
Imited States defense of Viet- 

' am. The enclosed petition can

ampuses on which no petitions presently being circulated.

A Brief Word of Praise 

We want to say a word of praise for a change. 

When we published our COMMENT on the student dollar, 
we hardly expected it to have the reaction it did. Maybe it 
wasn't the editorial, but whatever did it, students decided that 
it was time for a change at the Dixie, an only they could do it. 

So they stayed away — in droves — and some cadets went 
to talk to the Dixie's owner to explain to him why and what we 
wanted changed. He was most cooperative when he realized that 
not only did he need us, but we needed him and that some changes 
would do us all good. 

The Dixie has changed. It's been cleaned up, polisher and 
shined. Even the food seems a little better, 'tho it's never been 
really bad. Best of all, those who work in the Dixie seem more 
anxious to wait on students, to give them good service. They are 
not resentful because we left the Dixie — they only hope we 
will be justisfied in going back now that Changes have been made. 

We've learned something from this experience, too. We know 
now that there are other places to meet, get a cup of coffee or 
some dinner, listen to some music. And we realize, perhaps, all 
the long, long hours we sat in the Dixie to avoid studying. 

A word of praise, then, for the Dixie and the mature way the 
students have handled the situation. We only hope things stay 
this way. 

Dear Editor: 

For the past few years, I have been appalled by the amotinit 
of gossip that circulates at North Georgia College, and it appears 
this year will be no different. I wonder if the person who spreads 
such "secret" information realizes the damage it can do? This 
I doubt, because it still continues. Perhaps they fail to realize 
the damage can not be repaired. They fail to realize that these 
who gossip or feel it is their duty to tell certain things are only 
attempting to cover up their own personality inadaquacies by 
talking about others. It not only sihows their own immaturity, 
but disrupts the life of the person talked about, and those in- 
volved in the gossip with him. 

A good example of this is the boy or girl that gets a casual 
report that their spouse is sitting in the library or canteen 
with another person — the implication being, otf course, that she 
or he is sneaking around, flirting! After a while, doubt sets in, 
arguments start, rumors flow, another couple "break up," and 
all this takes place because of one person. Surely, this person 
could save a lot of time by spreading arsenic around campus — 
it gets the same effect!! 

Another example can be noted in the myths that return 
to North Georgia about the seniors at summer camp. These 
rumors arrive with "a bang — blown out of proportion, exager- 
ated to no end, and added to for more interest and effect. It seems 
the local 'mouths" can hardly wait to start work again this year 
and ruin more people at the expense of building up their own 

Thus I offer, not as a threat but as a word to the wise, a 
reminder — the shoe fits both fet and gossip can work both 

Name Withheld 

Dear Editor 

In the past two or three years, the tradition that Nortl 
Georgia possesses, has been slowly vanishing. We, the seniors 
have been here at North Georgia long enough to see its gooi 
points and its weaknesses, and realize that certain changes shouli 
be made. These changes were taking place gradually and weri 
being initiated through a well-designed time schedule, as the: 
should be. You cannot, overnight, decide to change the policies o 
an institution known for its output of top-grade military person 
nel and expect every thing to fall into place. 

The record that North Georgia possesses is one to be proud o 
and we fully acknowledge this, so why change its entire militar; 
program just because cer'ain improvements were needed? Dril 
has been cut, freshmen treated without malice, uniforms have beet 
changed, a new rank system has been imposed, and North Georgi; 
tradition cut to the ground. At the rate we are progressing, Nortl 
Georgia College will no longer be the top-rate military schoo 
that it is, but will be pulled down to the level of an ordinarj 
ROTC school. It that what we want? 

I have heard people say with pride, "I graduated from Nortl 
Georgia College. Its the best military school available!" This i: 
what students of our class and the junior class wamt to be abl( 
to say. This is essentially a military school and we want it t( 
be the best. We have certaipn training that other schools do not 
and ought to be able to take full davantage of them. The practica 
phases of problems under the instruction of Scabbard and Blade 
is priceless. How does anyone think North Georgia has done scj 
well at camp the past few years — because of the training thai 
this group has done. If you don't believe it, ask this year's senioi' 
class or last year's. The senior took top honors at camp only througlj 
this excellent practical experience. j 

Times have Changed, however, and the "New Regime" is tryinjj 
to phase this organization out also, only to get t^ngs in the operati 
ing order they want, regardless of other people's ideas. If thii 
system up here is so wrong, why has it continued as long as i' 
has and turned out such a fine grade of officers? The "new regime' 
Qias tried to do away with all fraternities on campus also. It seem 
that North Georgia was lucky to survive all these years withou 
the help of these select few who know exactly how every situatioil 
should be handled!! I 

Maybe this "new regime" will soon be filtered out in year 
to come and the changes they made will go with them. Som 
improvements have been good, but the entire system of the schoo 
need not be changed to satisfy the whims of so few and destro; 
the tradition of North Georgia College. Let's don't change everyji 
thing. When I graduate, I want to be able to also say with prida 
"I graduated from North Georgia College! It's the best militar:| 
school available!"

Dear Editor: 

Recently there 'has been much protest against the war in 

, Viet Nam. About a week ago, I received a letter from a good friend, 
Lt. Col. Donald A. Seibert, who is currently stationed in Viet Nam. 
I would like to share a few paragraphs from this letter with the 
student body. 

, "I am enjoying my Job here in Viet Nam. I am Deputy Senior 

Advisor to a Vietnamese Infaintry Division. As such, I get out to 
see a lot orf operations, and also a lot of the civic action which the 
Division is engaged in. Although there is a certain understandable 

' reluctance to seek out too many of the enemy, once they make con- 
tact these little fellows fight like tigers. There is a shortage of 
good officers and NCOs but that is slowly being remedied. 

1 wish these protestors could get to see what the Viet Cong 

' do to harass the peasants, preventing them from getting their 
produce to market, stealing from them, terrorizing them, killing 
them needlessly. The government Just does not have enough 
troops to safeguard all of them. That is where we come in" 

'The countryside is a lush green. In our part, it is low and 
wet. But it has a beauty all of its own. The people are friendly 
and happy within limits. They have a good sense of humor and 

I laugh a lot. They serve delicious food — especially the sea food."

This Is An Officer? 

An N. G. C. Cadet Officer is a species strange and wonderful; 
a being only a little lower than the angels amd infinitely higher 
than fellow man. He is learned in all things — industriously im- 
proving his intellect by reading "Playboy," his humor by discuss- 
ing the coeds, his strength by wrestling in the dorm, his smooth- 
ness by wrestling in the back seat, and his status by relating tales 
of valor concerning the previously mentioned back seat. 
He is a direct descendant of 


Page 3 

The Machines and I 

the Greek gods of old and be- 
haves at all times in a manner 
suitable to his station in life. 
The dwelling place of young 
Jupiter is, naturally enough. 
Mount Olympus — called Staff 
Hall by the uniformed. There 
he plays his hi-fi, sings im- 
promptu melodies such as "I 
Wear a Gold Braid," "My Name 
Is Beautiful," or "Catch Me If 
You Can." 

One must not conclude that 
the young officer does nothing 
but play and sing while in 'his 
Ihieavenly dwelling. Nothing 
could be further from the truth! 
During the hours called study 
haU, he toils vigorously — for 
many things must be done be- 
fore the day ends. First, his 
impressive emblem, symbol of 
rank and prestige, must be pol- 
ished until it glows with the soft 
patina of old sivler; then labori- 
ous hours must be spent in 
copying from a textbook to ob- 
tain a set of Take-to-Class-Re- 
membering-Aids for the hour 
exam; then much time must be 

devoted to gazing into the mir- 
ror to determine Just who is the 
fairest of them all. 

The young officer, weary from 
his hours of labor, partakes of 
his ambrosia bowl and lies down 
to rest — serene in the know- 
ledge that he is the most hand- 
some and gifted of all men. 

'Rat-Fink' Social 
Code Protested 
At Amherst 

AMHERST, Mass. (OPS) — Stu- 
dents at Amherst College are 
protesting a new set of parietal 
rules, including a so-called "rat- 
fink" clause which makes all 
residents in each dormitory re- 
sponsible for reporting viola- 
tions of the social code. 

Student protest 'has taken the 
form of college-wide discussions 
and letters to the student pa- 
per, the Amherst Student. About 
100 students have not handed 


It all started one day when I got on an elevator in a largi 
office building and there was no one in the elevator but me. N 
people, no buttons on the wall, no elevator operator, nothing!! 
heard a voice say, "Kindly call out your floor, please." I looke 
around and didn't see a thing. I don't usually lose control of th 
sphincter muscle, but I almost did. I held on this time, though 
and after hearing the voice again, I looked on the wall. It read 
"This is an elevator run on sonic principles. Please state you 
floor and it will take you there." So I said, "Three please." 
The doors closed and up we 

went to the third floor. I really 

felt funny talking to an elevator, 

but at least I was alone. As I 

got off the elevator, I walked 

down the hall and I thought 

I heard it make a smart re- 
mark, but as I turned, the doors 

shut, and it was gone. I really 

didn't feel much like getting in- 
volved with an elevator that day 

This all leads to the fact that 

I have never had good relations 

with mechanical objects. Any- 
thing I can't reason with, kiss 

or at least talk to, I get into 

trouble with. I have a clock 

that runs counterclockwise, my 

toaster shakes my bread from 

side to side, and burns it, my 

toilet whistles at me, and I hate 

my shower. I paid one hundred 

and fifty dollars for a tape re- 
corder amd as I talk to it, it 

goes, "I know. I know." 
T bought a polariod camera 

and when I got it, it would put 

out pictures in two minutes. I 

didn't want to say anything, but 

then, it started putting out pic- 
tures in five minutes. Now, I 

get a little note that says, 

"Come in tomorrow for them." 

It won't even work on Sunday! 

I also have a sun lamp that 

rains when I lay under it. 

I was watching television on 
day and the picture kept goin 
up and down, so I hit it, and i 
really made me feel good, 
kicked in the screen, rippe^ 
off the knobs, and tore off tb 
antenna. It was terriffic, Man 
first triumph over a machin. 

We^s later I was going t 
the dentist, and I came in co. 
tact with another elevator c 
that sonic type. This time 
knew what to say. I simpl 
said, "Sixteen, please." On th 
way up, it said to me, "Aren 
you the guy that hit that te" 
vision set?" Before I could a. 
swer, it took me up and do' 
real fast and threw me oi 
in the basement, yelling a 
kinds of vulgar things at m; 
Something about this who" 
thing was funny, and I real 
didn't care to find out what. 

It all came to a climax oi 
day when I called my parer 
and my mother told me that n 
father had been fired. He w; 
replaced by a machine — a tin 
gadget that did everything m 
father could do, only much be 
ter. The depressing thing is, n 
mother ran out and bought ol

In the last edition of the Bu- 
gler there was an incorrect list 
of the pledges of Rex Fraternity 
for this quarter. So, in all due 
respect, we mow have the cor- 
rect list of pledges for this 
quarter. They are: 

1. Bob HaU 

2. Joe Keddock 

3. Jimmy Brinson 

4. Bob Ridgway 

5. Mike Swick 

6. BUI Payne 

7. EUdred Bru<;e

11. Seth Collins 

12. Qeve Whitley 

13. Sammy Lyles 

14. Harry Kohlenburger 

15. Larry Noland 

16. Ralph Foster 

This group of pledges seems 
to be a good "batch" and will 
add to the quality of the Fra- 
ternity. As you know, Rex Fra- 
ternity believes in quality and 
not quantity, as do other orga- 
nizations or campus. Rex, 
through the years, lias maintain- 
ed a desire to pledge students 
of good quality and not juts any 
and everybody. 

During the thanksgiving holi- 
ays, Rex Fraternity would like 
to wish everyone a most happy 
and joyful vacation. 

Sigma Theta 

Sigma Theta Fraternity at 
NGC was organized by a group 
of students who came in a body 
to North Georgia from Georgia 
State College for Men. There, 
the organization was known as 
Sigma Omega. Mr. Booth was a 
member of Sigma Omega in 
Tifton, and was the first ad- 
viser of Sigma Theta at North 

The original purpose of Sigma 
Theta was to provide a local so- 
cial organization when national 
fraternities were abolished from 
this campus in 1933, at the time 
North Georgia College was chan- 
ging from a senior college to a 
junior college. The Rex Club al- 
ready existed as a local orga- 
nization, and it later became 
Rex Fraternity. Today, Rex and 
Sigma Theta are still the two 
local fraternities on our cam- 

Sigma Theta has, as its pur- 
pose, the fostering of better so- 
cial events in the life of the 
students of North Georgia Col- 
lege. These events include dan- 
ces, banquets, picnics, etc. This 
year is proving to be a very 
successful one for the fraternity 
under the leadership of its offi- 
cers and the alert guidance of 
their faculty adviser, "Pop"

Charlie Wins Championship, 
Downs ALFA 20 - 6 

In a hard fought game Saturday, Company Charlie downed 

' Alfa to win the football championship. On the second play 
Charlie ran, Evens scampered sixty yards for the first touchdown 
of the game. The extra point was kicked by Patterson and Char- 

, lie led 70 in the opening minutes of the game. Alfa, though 
stunned, dug in and halted the offense of Charlie until half time 
drew near. Then Patterson hit Evens with a pass for nine yards 
and another touchdown. The extra point attempt was blocked by 

' Herring, and Charlie led 13-0. 

The second half opened with 

a display of talent on the part 

of Charlie's Patterson. He car- 

' ried the ball seven times in 
the third quarter out of fifteen 
plays. Besides this, he was in- 
volved in three pass plays and 
kicked the extra point, as Neigh- 
bors scored on one of his pass- 
es, making the score 20-6. Neith- 

, er team was able to score after 
this and the defenses of both 
teams should be commended for 
a fine job. Charlie at the end 
of the game was so overjoyed, 
they picked up their coach, John 
Branch, and threw him in the 

Outstanding players for Alfa 
were: Ramey, Herring, Wiley, 
Turgeon, and Bryant; for Char- 
lie, Patterson, Strickland, Flor- 
ence, Richie, and Murphy. 

Delta Wins 

Delta Company took the hon- 
ors in the horseshoe tourna- 
ment this year, as it ended the 
matches with a record of 14 
wins and two losses. This was 
due to the fine playing of Ridg- 
way, Anderson and Wright, who 
mowed down all opposition with 
little difficulty. Second place 
went to Company Echo who was 
led by Truelove, Spence, Dudi- 
chum and Kunzig. There was a 
tie for third place between Fox- 
trot and Band.

Cadet Relates Sad Tale 

Of Wednesday Inspection Woe 

The N. G. C. coeds don't know what they're missing. They 
•don't have an intepesting Wednesday morning dust inspectiom to 
look forward to. In order to make them more appreciative of their 
heaven-sent blessing of "rack time" each and every Wednesday, 
I have decided to divulge this information to any girl who has 
not been so fortunate as to have it related to her by a weeping 
cadet, moaned in her ear from the vicinity of her shoulder. 
Thursday is a day of mixed 

emotions for the two occupants 
of a room in any of the cadet 
dorms, because the boy who was 
on (responsible for) the room 
yesterday is glad his week is 
over and because another week 
has started for his unfortunate 
roommate, Who has already be- 
gun dreading the coming 
Wednesday. This mood contin- 
ues throughout the week and in- 
creases in intensity and magni- 
tude until it finally reaches a 
climax obout eight o'clock on 
the day of doom. 

Actually, a dust inspectiom 
isn't so bad — at least, not if 
you're super-human! All it a- 
mounts to is a pile of work 
which isn't greatly appreciated, 
but would certainly be noticed 
if it weren't done. 

After you've spent the Tues- 
day afternoon before the big day 
waxing your floor and washing 
windows, dusting, and polish- 
ing s'hoes and boots, you stagger 
to your bunk and die for 5% 
hours. Then you wake up again 
and start on another day — 
except you have this aching 
back condition of unknown or- 
igin. You march over to break- 
fast with full knowledge that 
the other cadets will hurry back 
to the dorm to make some last 
minute arrangements. But not 
you! You're ready today. 

As the morning hours wing 
swiftly towards eight o'clock, 
you become more and more con- 
fident. To avoid the last minute 
rush and confusioin, you get 
dressed, with the exception of 
your shirt which you don't want 
to get wrinkled, at exactly 7:45. 
Then you give the room a last 
looking over. Things are start- 
ing to buzz now; people are 

shouting warnings to hustle up 
and do this and that, but you're 
calmly and peacefully making 
last minute preparations. Now 
there are only five more min- 
utes, so you get your Shirt out. 
Things have gone too smoothly, 
and so you are getting a little 
shaky by this time. When you 
fasten the last button on the 
shirt, it falls off in your hand. 
By this time the wolf is fast clos- 
ing in on his prey. You hear him 
progressing your way as you 
dash over to get your sewing kit 
from your drawer. You get it 
out, but that's not all - here 
comes a bottle of shaving lotion 
with it, all over the floor. It's 
soaking into the smooth wax 
with a bubbling sound like hy- 
drochloric acid eating into your 
eyeballs. Now the wolf is knock- 
ing at your door — Room, 
Attention!!! The Company Com- 
mander comes in and smiles 
villianously. Then he says "What 
has happened in this room?" 
You start telling him, but final- 
ly give it up in despair when 
you see that he is not moved 
to pity in the least. Besides what 
damage was done by the last 
minute catastrophe, he finds 
enough additional things wrong 
to keep the first sergeant busy 
writing stick-sheets with your 
name on them for the rest of 
the day. 

So, it's all over, and all of 
your work was to no avail. But 
now you feel some what re- 
lieved. This is mainly because 
you don't have to go through 
this ordeal for another week 
and there is comfort in your 
heart knowing that it is your 
turn to watch your roommate, 
day by day, approaching the 
brink of insanity.

willing to abide by the social 
code, including the "rat-fink" 

The student council is orga- 
nizing a poll of all students on 
the social hours issue and is 
encouraging all dormitories to 
elect representatives to a stu- 
dent inter-dormitory council, 
which is in charge of formu- 
lating the social code. 

Along with the exclusion ol 
the "ratrfink" clause, students 
are demanding an extension of 
the Ihours during which women 
are allowed to visit the donnl- 


lege campuses, especially during 
the period from November 22 
to December 10, to engage in a 
series of rallies supporting 
American policy in Vietnam. If 
you feel that it is possible for 
your university to hold such a 
rally during this period, please 
let us know the date for the 
rally and any information you 
might have as to its nature. 

Finally, we urge students on 
your campuses to send Christ- 
mas cards to our soldiers in 
Vietnam. You can address cards 
in care of the World Affairs 
Forum, Brigham Young Univer- 
sity, Provo, Utah. The cards 
must reach Brigham Young by 
December 1, if our soldiers are 
to receive them on Christmas 

We welcome your cooperation 
and assistance in this bi-parti- 
san, national program to show 
the American people that the 
new student radicals do not 
speak for our generation in 
their irresponsible opposition to 
our country's policy in Vietnam.

to any phase of our committee, 
please feel free to write us. 

Yours truly.

ROTC Information Team 
Play War, Explain Program 


This year, through Mr. Bill Woody, office of Public Relations, 
North Georgia College is sponsoring an ROTC Information Team. 
It is composed of a group of seniors who travel to the various 
high schools in the North Georgia area and explain the advan- 
tages of taking ROTC in college, showing some of the equipment 

The team is composed of Skeet Hard, Bill Brown, Fred Heath, 
Sam Luckey and Skip Schaper, Don Bowdoin is the safety officer 
and Clayton Peacock is team captain. 

The team is composed of Each figured something had to 

give, so they both dove for the 
ammunition and tried to load 
it at the same time. Why should 
they be in such a hurry? Mainly 
because the rest of the team 
had emerged at the end of the 
field firing their M-14 rifles, 
and attacking them as in a 
real battle. It might have just 
been a mock battle, but to Bill 
and Skeet, it was like Custer's 
last stand. To top it all off, 
there were comments floating 
down from the stands tat were 
really encouraging, such as "No 
wonder we're losing the war," or 
"Hey, buddy, what you need is 
an extra thumb!" Under such 
praise as this, the pair finally 
succeeded in loading the ma- 
chine eun. But fate was against 
them — the gun wouldn't fire. 
By this time, the enemy was 
out for blood, since they were 
supposed to be dead by this 
time. On and on they came, fir- 
ing and screaming, wondering 
just when they were supposed to 
be shot. Finally, just in time, 
the team of Brown and Hard 
managed to fire a burst of two 
rounds, and the enemy, quite

Schaper. Dan Bowdoin is the 
safety officer and Clayton Pea 
cock is team captain. 

The usual procedure used 
by the team at the high schools 
is to visit them on Wednesday 
mornings and give performances 
which consist of explanations 
of what the ROTC program is 
(particularly at N. G. C), a 
question and answer period, 
a display of various weapons, 
and a mock battle. 
The first performance of the 

[group took place at Lumpkin 
County High. Needless to say, 
the whole team was just a little 
bit nervous. The show was go- 
ing good until the time for 
the mock battle began. Skeet 
Hard and Bill Brown came run- 
ning around the side of the 
truck which was parked on the 
football field behind the speak- 
er. They carried an M-60, and 
a belt of one hundred rounds of 
Wank ammunition. Everything 
was going like clockwork — un- 
:il Bill tried to put the belt 
jf ammunition in the gun at 
.he same time Skeet was trying 
10 close the breach and fire.

Emphasis Week 

The Student Christian Union 
will be sponsoring Spiritual Em- 
phasis Week from January 17 
through January 20. The speak- 
er this year will be the Rever- 
end D. P. McGeachy III from 
the First Presbyterian Church 
in Gainesville, Georgia. 

The annual "White ChnsLnias 
Dance" sponsored by SCU was 
■held Saturday, Daeember 4 in 
Memorial Hall. Admission was 
a toy, an article of clothing oi 
food for needy families. 

Student Council 

The Student Council was to 
meet last Wednesday, Decem-

members, "about four girls came 
to the meeting, waited for ten 
minutefi, and then left" 

NCO Club Plans 
Tea, Military Ball 

The Non-commissioned Offi- 
cers Club has elected as its offi- 
cers this year: 

President, Thomas W. Ander- 
son; Vice President, Mike Thom- 
ason; Secretary, J. Allen Higgs; 
Treasurer, Charles Baugh; Parli- 
amentarian, Tom McLaughlin; 
Chaplain, Charles Bishop. 

Each year NCO Club sponsors 
the Military Ball spring quar- 
ter; this is the largest annnual 
social event held at North Geor- 
gia College. During the year the 
club will be sponsoring various 
money-raising projects in order 
to secure funds for the Military 
Ball and would appreciate the 
full support of the entire stu- 
dent body in these activities so 
that the dance can be a great 

The present NCO Club has 
recognized the fact that an offi-

ficient socially as well as mili- 
tarily. On the 14th of Novem-

It's That Time Again - 
Exams and Late-Night Pranks 

There seem to be a lot of rumors, stories, and tales going 
around concerning the military policies during the exam week. 
We were concerned about this, because the things we heard would 
lead us to believe that studying was to be "de-emphasized" dur- 
ing exams, and that seems a bit odd. So we checked with the 
"powers that be" just to find out what was coming off. 

Although it's not official yet (or wasn't when we got the 
information), 24-hour late lights are authorired and no regular 
6:30 inspections will be held. However, this is the last quarter 
that these policies will be in effect if they are not "successful". 
The late lights policy eliminates the need for studying in the 
halls, or should. 

Again, the old question arises: military or grades? Are we 
here to gain education or to learn to be officers? There are plenty 
of Cadets on this campus that have proved that one can excel in 
both. Exam week is the time to prove that the Cadets on this 
campus are worthy of the extra privileges given them by using 
these privileges to make some top grades. 

There's nothing like a gooa joke, and we appreciate one as 
much as anyone else around. But someone, somewhere, must draw 
the line between jokes and malicious mischief. 

The "Good Fairy" thing is over, and he really didn't do too 
much actual damage, except for the signs which will have to 
be repainted (and which he will pay for). It WAS amusing, in a 
way, just as is the T.P. on the drill field, and the "Pig" cadences 
the Cadets used to delight in. 

But we can't find anything amusing in flagerant destruction 
on property, in doing harm to anyone personally. That type action 
borders on the criminal, no matter who it is aimed at. Likes and 
dislikes will spring up constantly among all individuals, especially 
on a small campus such as this. But dislike is no excuse for 
malicious mischief — in fact, there is NO excuse we can think of 
for this type action. 

The cure for this? A moment to stop and think. 40-and-2, or 
Room Confinement, is a long, bad-news haul. And surely there 
are other ways to express discontent, or frustrations, or dislikes, 
than by malicious mischief. Have a door-slam, or write a nasty 
letter to the Bugler, or any one of the countless other things that 
can be done. But stop and think before anything is done that 
would harm someone or something.

Activities Fee, Parking Lot 
Raise Questions, Comment 

December 2, 1965 
President M. E. Hoag 
North Georgia College 
Dahlonega, Georgia 
Dear President Hoag: 

Words cannot express my family's heartfelt appreciation for 
the many kindnesses and expressions of sympathy extended to 
us by the College at the passing of my brother, Cadet Horace M. 

The Hoinor Escort provided by the Cadet Corps at Horace's 
funeral gave my Mother a sense of pride in her son which, for 
awhile, seemed to have overshadowed the tremendous burden of 
grief placed on her shoulders. The escort, flowers, sympathy cards, 
visits by members of the Faculty and Cadet Corps, and the many 
other expressions of sympathy did much to ease the pain of such 
a tragedy; but to me personally they meant much more. 

There has always been a sense of closeness and comradeship 
at North Georgia and I suspect this will always be true regard- 
less of how large the College may get. I had the same feeling 
of being a member of a close-knit fraternity of young men and 
women when I was a student there; and the reaction to Horace's 
death reminded me that this atmosphere still prevails. 

My brother is gone; but we have a lifetime of memories of 
him which will always be sharper and clearer when we realize 
others cared. 

It would be almost impossible to thank everyone personally. 
I hope this letter will be read by all concerned and accepted as 
an inadequate but heartfelt expression of our appreciation. 



After reviewing last year's newspapers, I have come to the 
conculsion that the poor individual who wrote the letter about 
North Georgia being such a "dead" school would lose his (or her) 
i:isani;y if he (or she) were here now. What has happened? The 
new regime is trying to "upgrade" North Georgia College, but 
have you noticed that almost all the students are slowly going 
downhill? I noticed even the professors look as if the world 
were on their shoulders. I guess it's hard for them to set a good 
example with all the depression that seems to be overtaking the 

When I came for my interview, I asked several people (both 
males and females) what they thought of NGC. Surprisingly 
enough, they all responded, 'It's a great school, and everyone is 
so friendly." The last couple of years have not been so bad, but 
I'm glad that most of those kids are gone, because they just might 
not believe it was the same place. However; I would like to nj^ike 
the comment that the new freshman class ii friendly — at least, 
they make an effort to try t > be pleasant. 

I'm wondering how many sophomores and freshmen will re- 
turn next quarter or even next year. If North Georgia wants to 
keep its students, it had better try to do something about all 
the gloomy and ina^rtive atmosphere. We're not enjoying our 
college days — we're serving a prison sentence! 


O.K., so it's almost time to fork over tuition and fees for 
Winter Quarter, And the question comes up again, why do we have 
to pay that "Activity Fee?" And $5.00 just to park a car in the 
sehool's lot, which i.s the only place you CAN (legally) park one? 

At first glance, the whole idea does seem a bit silly. We 
know that at other, larger schools, this type activity fee goes to 
pay for the annual, for conceris, plays, and lecturers who give 
programs free to the student body. There doesn't seem to be an 
abundance of t;his type program a; N.G.C., so to answer all the 
quarterly queries on the activity fee, the Bugler is publishing 
The Student Activities Budget for 1965-66, found below. We are 
not printing the itemized portion of the budget; the whole thing 
will be posted on the door of the Bugler office. 

The parking lot fee is another matter. It's paved, lighted, and 
locked this year, so that obviously explains the $5.00 per quarter 
fee, which totals $2100. The paving and lighting of the lot alone 
cost the school (that's us. you know) some $14,000. Why? Simply 
because Dahlonega is not exactly a center of commerce and in- 
dustry, and hauling all those materials up here eetts. 

Any other questions?

from "Gone With The Wind", dedicated to Roddy Lane, in place 
of the "Star Spangled Banner" . . . Let's all wish Joyce B. the 
best of luck in court next week. She is suing her legs for non-

me a Grant's." . . . The election is over and Irene is "Latrine 
Queen," and she is just too good for us now. When she enters 
the chow nail and there is a line, she goes 1o the head; if you 
pass her on campus she just drops her lids and walks on; even 
the plumber says it has all gone to her head. . . . W. Worsham has 
been spending so much time in the library lately that I think he 
'has really found a steady love. Could it be a book worm, by 
change? . . . Lewis Hall was in an uproar the other night when 
Mrs. A. D. found a snake in the "Pit" — but there was nothing to 
worry about — it was only Bigbie. He is spending quite a lot 
of time down there, I understand. . . . Dan Murphy had to close 
down the Holly since the Biology Club has brought the skift flick

up in the morning it takes her 15 minues to get her feet to reach 
the floor. . . . Just a minute. Has anyone seen Uncle Ben's pipe?

First World War Armistice 
Is Recalled by NGC Grad 

(Daily Pro^rMs, Ch«r1ott»svill«, Va.) 

Forty-seven years ago tomorrow a green "shavetail" (secool' 
lieutenant) led a parade in the village of Dahlonega, Ga., to celt 
brate the armistice that led to the end of World War I. 

The lieutenant, one of the first ever commissioned an office 
of the U. S. Army while still under 21 years of age, commandei 
a company of Student Arm Training Corps (SATC) cadets at Nortl 
Georgia Agricultural College at Dahlonega. 
For several days there had 

been rumors of armistice, but 
this was the real thing and Dah- 
lonega (pop. 150, not including 
students at NGAC) was all agog 
over the victorious end of the 

Dahlonega, named for an In- 
dian maiden, was built like a 
western mining town. It was the 
county seat of Lumpkin County. 
The county courthouse occupied 
the center of the town square 
and the stores arou.nd the 
square had wooden awnings that 
extended out over the sidewalk. 

There were no streets in the 
town then, so the parade began 
on the college campus and fol- 
lowed a road to the edge of the 
town and was "reviewed" by 
the college president and the 
commanding officer of the SATC 
post at the college. 

A color guard, followed by the 
college band, preceded the com- 
pany of about 150 Georgia Moun- 
tain boys in the parade. Per- 
haps 200 townspeople, college 
faculty families and employes 
lined the road and the town 
square and cheered the march- 
ing cadets. 

The second lieutenant com- 
manding the company was ele- 
vated to this high position by 
virtue of the fact he was ten 
days older than either of his 
"junior" officers, all of whom 
had been commissioned at an 
officers' training school at 
Plattsburg, N. Y,, on Sept. 19, 

The wife of the retired Arm; 
major who had been recalled ti 
active duty to command th 
SATC post was said to hav 
been the girl on whom Owei 
Wister based his heroine in "Th 

Also, the president of the col 
lege had a lovely daughter ii 
whom the junior officers tool 
special interest. In fact, it w» 
reported later that one of ther 
married the girl. 

The second lieutenant corr 
manding the SATC compan. 
wasn't interested in the prexy' 
daughter. He 'had returned t| 
his post the day before thi 
Armistice, having gone to Vh 
ginia to marry a Nelson Count 
Miss on Nov, 2. 

Considerable fun was poke 
a^t the SATC, the idea of whics 
was to give college student' 
preliminary military training t 
equip them for attendance s 
officer's training schools latei 
Some interpreted "SATC" i 
' stuck at the college," "Satui 
day afternoon tea club" an 
"stick around till Christmas,' 

The year 1918 is a long tim 
ago, but I still remember th 
occasion on which a veo' grce 
■'second looie" led his con 
pany in a parade at Dahlonegi 

You guessed it: the author t, 
these "Good Old Days" pie« 
was the rery green "secon 
looie." I was 19 years old !

The red and blue citation cord worn by selected cadets in the 
Brigade signifies their active membership in the National Society 
of Scabbard and Blade. Scabbard and Blade is a national military 
honor society with local chapters, called companies, established in^ 
171 leading colleges and universities which have Reserve Officer 
Training Programs. The founding of Scabbard and Blade was the 
result of a feeling on the part of a number of college men that 
such a military society was neces.sary to develop and fosler the 
ideals and practice of military education in the United States and 
particularly in the various colleges and universities where mili- 
tary science and tactics was part of the curriculum. 
The first unit so organized 

was the University of Wisconsin 
in 1904. and today is known as 
"A" Company, First Regiment. 
The N. G. C. unit of Scabbard 
and Blade is Company "I" of 
the Twelfth Regiment. Mem- 
bership in Scabbard and Blade 
at N. G. C. is highly selective, 
as with all the units within l^he 
society, and is composed of 
fifteen seniors of the Corps of 
Cadets. 1-12, as the North Geor- 
gia College Chapter is common- 
ly known, has distinguished it- 
self in many ways since its con- 
ception in the Fall of 1955-56 
It donated the monument that 
is placed at the end of 
the drill field to honor ihosc 
graduates of North Georgia who 
have given their lives in the 
defense of their country, in- 
stalled telephones in all the 
Company Com .zander's rooms, 
and other similar projects, be- 
sides the trainin,u c\teii(U\l to

sion of Company i-12" is to 
prepare the second classmen 
for the military training the\ 
will receive at summer camp 
held annually at a majo:- in 
stallalion in thn Third .\nii\ 
Areas. The training conducted 
by the members of the North 
Georgia College Scabbard and 
Blade serve.s a dual purpose; il 
supplements and gives cm 
phasis to the extensive class 
room preparation afforded by 
the Regular Army personnel in 
the military department, while 
also giving the members of 
1-12 opportunities to further 

develop various tech/niques 
which are essential attributes 
to an Army Officer. 

In preparing the .Tuniors for 
their six weeks of soldiering, 
I he primary training vehicle 
employed is the outdoor practi- 
cal The program in- 
cludes patrolling, squad, pla- 
toon, and company tactical for- 
mations. .41so included is what 
has been called the "course" 
by any cadet who has exepr- 
ienced a summer Fort Bragg 
.Map and Compass exercise. The 
desired result of this training 
is the maintaining of the tradi- 
tionally outstanding record es- 
tablished at ROTC Summer 
Camp by cadets from North 
Geargia College. An integral 
part of I-12's activities is the 
aggressor unit which is com- 
posed of volunter third class- 
men. These sophomores assist 
in the training offered by Scab- 
bard and Blade by acting as the 
"enemy" in all tactical exer- 
cises. They are under the super- 
vision of Cadet Tompkins and 
■t'adet Champion. 

The Scabbard and Blade of 
North Georgia College has four 
elected officers which corres-

dent, Trra'iurcr. and Secretary 
respectively. The Captain is

Around The Triangle 

Ed. Note: This begins a new 
feature for the Bugler. Future 
Article will view campus hap- 
penings with a 'critical' glance. 

Ten years ago il was the 
Generals, last year it was the 
Casuals; and this year it's the 
Majority-7! From Glenn Miller 
to Elvis and now the Beatles. 
Music changes, and accordingly, 
the campus groups which make 
the sound change. 

For the past six weeks, a new 
high-gear sound has invaded the 
campus in the form of seven 
musically minded maestros, 
known formally as The Major- 
ity-7. The group, consisting of 
N. G. C. students, is an out- 
growth of the original Casuals, 
though only three of the seveo 
were members. 

This new sound draws its r& 
pertoire from all the current 
"over the sea" pops, and also 
utilizes the new "folk-rock" 
mood. The "7" also reproduces 
the solid, and still popular rock 
'n roll favorites so necessary to 
the discotheque beat. 

The sound consists of three 
guitars, drums, sax, piano, and 
a vocalist, and the masters ot 
the sound are: Bill Chambers, 
lead guitar and head of the 
group; Charles Flora, rhythm 
guitar; Monty Clark, bass gul 
tar; Bob Wallace drums; Bud 
Rosser, piano; Sco t Johnson, 
vocalist; and Bruce Goddard 

After two campus perform^ 
ances, it looks as though the 
Majority 7 will be endorsed by 
more than a majority of the 
campus for quite a while.

Rebels Rout Raiders 27-0 
In All-Star Clash 

North Georgia College held its annual all-star football game 
Saturday night at Lumpkin County Stadium, and the Second 
Battalion Rebels emerged victorious 27-0. 

The First Battalion Raiders received the kickoff, but after 
running several plays, fumbled, and the pattern for the night 
was set. The Rebels took little time in showing the Raiders they 
were out for blood. On the third play, Gaines caught an Adair 
pass for the first score of the game. The extra point was kicked by 
'Randolph and the Rebels led 7 - 0. 
The Raiders received the kick- team could get rolling. During 

off once again, and began mov- 
ing up field but were halted 
on the fifty-yard line by the 
Rebels on a fumble recovered 
by Oliver. After the ball ex- 
changed hands several times, 
the Raiders again had the ball, 
but a fourth down play proved 
to be their downfall. On fourth 
down, they faked a punt and 
attempted a pass. The pass was 
intercepted by Cameron of the 
Rebels, however, and he scam- 
pered twenty-five yards for 
another Rebel score. The extra 
point attempt was wide and 
the score was 13-0. The Rebels 
were all fired up now and were 
determined to score again be- 
fore the half ended. After 
taking possession of the ball 
again on downs, the Rebels 
moved down field once more 
behind the fine running of Mit- 
chell and Roberts and the pass- 
ing of Adair. The drive was cul- 
minated by another fine run 
by Gaines who scampered a- 
round the right side of the 
Raiders for his second score 
of the night. The PAT was good 
by Randolph and the Rebels 
led at the half 20-0. 

The second half turned into 
a defensive battle as neither 

the third quarter the ball ex- 
changed hands several times, 
with outstanding individual 
performances on both teams. As 
the final quarter started, how- 
ever, the Rebels rolled again.

PO's Undefeated, 
Win Volley Ball 

The Rec Clubs of North Geor- 
gia College have been quite ac- 
tive this quarter in an attempt 
to live up it its motto: "An 
activity for every girl — a 
girl for every activity." The 
big activity this quarter was 
volley ball tournament. Each 
club was divided into two 
leagues, a blue and a white, 
for the competition. 

At the end of a week and a 
half, each league had a cham- 
pioins:hip team. In the Blue 
League, the Phi Omricons 
were undefeated as they downed 
all opposition and then, turned

As you know from past edi- 
tions of the Cadet Bugler, we 

of Rex Fraternity have been 
sponsoring a blood bank for 
the members of Rex, the stu- 
dents and faculty of North Geor- 
gia College. However, Rex has 
decided to go one better and 
begin a program to donate blood 
to be sent to American soldiers 
in Viet Nam as a matter of ex- 
pressing to these soldiers our 
thanks for what they are doing. 
We of the fraternity would like 
to set up a student body pro- 
gram so that every one may con- 
tribute to this act if he desires. 

This program would be a fine 
way to express feelings toward 
policies that the United States 
has initiated in being in South 
Viet Nam to defend that nation 
against communism, outstand- 
ing for the school, and would 
also bring good morale to the 
soldiers. If you, the students, 
feel as we do, please express 
your thoughts to any member 
of Rex Fraternity and the fra- 
ternity will begin to make ar- 
rangements for the student body 

As an excellent way to start 
off the new year, Rex Fraterni- 
ty wlil have its initiation of the 
new pledges on the first week- 
emd after Christmas holidays, 
January 8. Also at this time the 
fraternity plans to have a dance

Sigma Theta, the largest fra- 
ternity on campus, has already 
started planiung for its annual 
initiation. The iniation is being 
planned by Tommy Glisson and 
Skeet Hard. 

Plans have been made for fu- 
ture dances under the direction 
of Sigma Theta's social chair- 
man, Scott Johnson. These dan- 
ces will be coordinated with Rex 
Fraternity and will be put Oin for 
the benefit of the entire student 

Sigma Theta has made many 
contributions to the campus and 
also, to the city of Dahlonega 
As a result, they have been the 
center of much praise and atten- 

Sigma Theta has, as its pur- 
pose, the fostering of better so- 
cial events in the life of the 
students of North Georgia Col- 
lege. These events include dan- 
ces, banquets, picnics, etc. This 
year is proving to be a very 
successful one for the fraternity 
under the leadership of its offi- 
cers and the alert guidance of 
their faculty adviser, "Pop"

Students' Anti-War 
Feelings On Campus 

Student groups across the coun- 
try are planning antiwar activi- 
ties on campuses and in com- 
munities as part of a two-day 
protest Gel. 15 and 16, again.';! 
the war in Viet Nam. 

The 'National Days of Protest' 
called by the 'National Commit 
\vc to End War in Viet Nam,' 
will consist of activities ranging 
from campus teach-ins to civil 
disobedience at military centers. 
The demonstrations are being 
organized by local committees 
to end war and by local chap- 
ters of groups such as the Stu- 
dents for a Democratic Society, 
Du Hois Clubs, and the Young 
.Socialist Alliance. 

The national committee was 
organized during the 'Assembly 
of Unrepresented People' in 
Washington in August to pro- 
vide a clearinghouse for infor- 
mation for the various groups 
protesting the war in Viet Nam. 
In its call for the Oct. 15-16 
protest, the committee declared 
that "unless we leave the con- 
fines of the usual government 
I'hannels. we shall not be heard.

At Dawsonville, the tear

its recess. Immediately, the

eight-year-olds of all size

weapons were out on displa

from handling them. One of th 
smaller boys looked at th 
machine gun and said, "Loci 
a BAR," The kid beside hit 
came back with, "Aw, you don 
know nothing. That's an M-€ 
and that's an M-14, and that 
an M-1." The team started t 
ask him the cycle rate of fir

A Prime Example of Political Apathy 
(Or Do We Really Care?) 

We saw a prime example of political apathy on OUR part 
the other day. Julian Bond, leader of the militant Student Non- 
Violent Coordinating Committee, came out ni the Atlanta papers 
encouraging — in fact, urging — all American to not only avoid 
the draft but to use any means to undermine it. He also "would 
admi:e t^ie courage of any one who burns his draft card," at the 
idea of Negroes being required to fight for a "democracy which 
does not exist for them at home." 

The alarming pari of the whole sickening mess is that Mr. 
Bond will soon be sworn in as a member of the Georgia House of 
Representatives from Fulton County. We ELECTED this man to a 
position of public responsibility — a man who openly advocates 
violation of a law, the U.S. Selective Service Act — a man who 
believes thai "Vietnamese are murdered because the U. S. is pur- 
suing an aggressive policy in violation of internatioinal law" — a 
man possibly NONE of us agree with. 

We would not questio.n Mr. Bond's innate right to his own 
beliefs on any subject. It appears that he is a man of some edu- 
cation since he is I he son of the dean of a negro college, and we 
hope he used his intelligence to cosider all the facts before taking 
his stand. 

Our question is one that should hit everyone as it hit us — 
did we vote for Mr. Bond, or others like him, simply because we 
did not know (or care to know) what he believes in? We are all 
of voting age, most of us have voted and will continue to vote. 
We have a definite right to say who will speak for us, and we 
cannot afford to let our own iginorance and apathy determine who 
we will elect. 

Someone did some research and said that 80 per cent of all 
Americans had little or no concern with any national or inter- 
national affairs, and in fact, could care less. This is particularly 
apalling when you stop to think that WE MAY BE part of this 
same 80 per cent who take their "non-attitudes" to the polls and 
select those who will represent them in government. 

It^s too late for those of us in Fulton County — this year. But 
Mr. Bond will be up for re-election, and countless others will be 
running for political positions. Next time we hope that those who 
vote will have taken the time to find out Phe beliefs of those for 
whom they vote. 

Then all we can do is hope our man wins. 

* * * * 

We on the Bugler staff have noticed for some time that wages 
for student employees on campus seem to fall below those paid at 
other schools, and FAR below the minimum wage. We are interes- 
ted in finding out why. and what can be done if a raise seems 
warranted. What we want to know now is this: 

— Are you interested in knowing why our wages are so low? 
What other complaints or comments about student employmet 
do you have? How many of you depend on part-time employment 
to pay some of your expenses? Why are you working? Would you 
like to see some improvement in student wages? Drop us a line 
and let us know the answers. We are currently planning a series 
of editorials and articles in this area, because there are some 
■unanswered ques;io.ns we want to probe further. Put any comment 
— signed, please (but we won't use your name if you wish) — in 
Box 5779, the Bugler Box in the Canteen, or under the door of 
the Bugler Office in the bottom of Price Memorial. 

Around The Triangle 

(Editor's Note: This issue, this space is devoted to student' 
opinion on Viet Nam. We encourage these opinions and the student, 
body's contributions to this feature/editorial column.) {■ 

-)(- I 

Recently a college in Utah published a nationwide inquirj 
of colleges and institutions concerming campus attitudes toward 
the Amejican position in Viet Nam. Part of this inquiry consisted 
of a petition, sent to every college in the nation, underwriting 
support for our position in Southeast Asia vs. communism. In 
order to sign the petition, one had to agree that he was opposed 
to the communist effotrts, and in favor of U. S. policy in Viet Nam. 
NGC proudly filled its petition to the brim; names having been 
scrawled in the margins, om the back, and even over the print. 
More recently, WIN IN VIET 

NAM bumper stickers have been 
sold around the campus, the 
proceeds to be used to buy mag- 
azines for the active duty sol- 
diers. Futile as it may seem to 
those who recoginize the overt 
apathy of the campus, a sub- 
stantial sum has so far been 
collected. We praise those who 
have actively supported this ef- 
fort, and hope that such pro- 
jects and activities will be con- 
tinued, for these seemingly 
small gifts carry with them a 
knowledge that someone appre- 
ciates those who donate them- 
selves m our behalf. 

In continuation of this cam- 
paign, two suggestions are thus 
offered: (1) That the names and 
mailig addresses of all NGC 
grads on overseas active duty be 
published, so that we, the stu- 
deait body at large, may write 

to them (for this desire has been 
voiced lately). (2) That a volun- 
tary campus rally be held in sup- 
port of those who are defend- 
ing our ideals and goals in a 
forgotten plain somewhere in 
Asia. With enough effort, we,' 
as citizens and students of NGC, 
might steal the thunder of 
others who chose to burn their 
obligations in fires of selfish- 

It is not enough to be po- 
tential defenders of freedom; 
one may not sit comfortably on 
his laurels, steei>ed in the self- 
satisfaction that his obligation 
will be fulfilled in "due time." 
We must, therefore, involve our- 
selves in the active support of 
of our beliefs, and endorse the 
traditions of our school, our 
comrades in Viet Nam, and the 
heritage of our country.

Rifle Team Piles Up 
Winning Matches 

The rifle team of North Georgia College has really been doing 
some shooting this past quarter by winning three shoulder matches 
and placing third in a four-way match. The first match was the 
four way match with Georgia State, The Citadel, and Georgia Tech. 
The scores were: Georgia State, 1285; The Citadel, 1345; NGC, 1266; 
and Georgia Tech. 1265. 

The next match was against 
Jacksonville State and our rifle 
team won it by a score of 1352 
to Jacksomville's 1256. This is 
the highest score that NGC has 
scored this year. 

In the third match NGC beat 
Georgia State 1326 to 1286. This 
gave the team a comeback from 
that first four-way match. 

The last match of the Fall 
Quarter was against the Uni- 
versity of Chattanooga. Again 
NGC came through by winning 
1314 to 1256. This is another 
I fine score to add to the list. 

During Winter Quarter there 
will be five shoulder matches. 
Also, there will be two section- 
al matches fired at the Citadel 
on February 26 and March 26. 
The five shoulder matches look 
like this: 

Jan. 8 — Gordon Military, There 

Jan. 15 — Three-way Match, Here 

Univ. of Georgia 

Gordon Militarj' 

Jan. 2ft— Three-way Match, Clem. 



Feb. 5 — East Tennessee, There 

Feb. 19— N. C. State, There 

In sicoring matches, the top 
five on each team are counted 
fo arrive at the final score. The 
NGC team has certainly been 
shooting tops according to Capt. 
Blanton, and should continue to 
add to its wins with the fine 
team. There are 13 members Oin 

Ballard, Lawrence 

this year's team: Joe Hillman, 
Captain; Dank Seel, assistant 
coach; Jim McPhail, co-captain; 
John Peacock, Ed Carter, R. C. 
Smith, L. J. Blood, John Mar- 
tindale, Herbert Fenster, Bob 
Rozar, Cliff Glover, Richard 
Greene and Dwight Whitaker. 
Richard and Dwight are new 
members this quarter. 

The high scores (match aver- 
age) Fall Quarter were: Mc- 
Phail, Seel, Blood, Carter, Hill- 
man, and Peacock. Last year 
North Georgia placed fourth in 
rifle team competitian in the 
Third Army. NGC also placed 
in the top 50 in the nation. 

North Georgia College and es- 
pecially the rifle team has some- 
thing to look forward to within 
the inext year. There is going 
to be a modernization and ad- 
dition to the rifle range. The 
plans are now in final stage of 
drawing, and construction 
should begin sometime in the 
spring. There will be 21 firing 
points with several available on 
the weekends for recreational 
shooting. There will be a glassed 
in spectators section, as well as 
locker rooms, rifle racks and 
cleaning rooms, scorer's tables, 
and also restroom facilities. 
This new building will be an 
addition to the old range which

Sigma Theta Plans "UMOC' 

With it's iniliation planned for 
January 15, Sigma Theta has de- 
cided to start the year off in 
great fashion with a novel idea. 
Next week, they will sponsor an 
"Ugliest MAN On Campus" con- 
test, with the voles costing a 
penny apiece.. The mo'ney will 
be used to send gifts to grad- 
ates from North Georgia College 
who are in Viet Nam. There 
was much deliberation as to who 
should be selected to campaign 
for this coveted title, but the 
decisio'n was finally reached. 

Each possesses a distinct 
quality about him which makes 
him worthy of the title "Ug- 


liest Man On Campus" (UMOC). 
The chosen few are as follows: 
John T. Lawrence, Walter Vivi- 
an Worsham m, David Eugene 
Hard, Donald Tick Tompkins, 
and Samuel Snake Bigbie. 

Start considering these peo- 
ple now and be prepared to cast 
your vote or votes for one of 
the above. The winner will be 
awarded a trophy with the prop- 
er inscription on it. Good luck. 

It's going to be a tough de-

Glamour's "Ten Best Dressed" 

Contest Begins at N. G. C. 

"Jiust thinking will get you nowhere, you have to thinli college 
through, have a plan not only for learning, but for finding the 
people who can add to what you want lo learn and be and feel, 
a plan for everything you do. And that includes the clothes you 
wear and the make-up you use. With all the bright competitive 
minds there are crowded on campus now, a girl has to have the 
brains to look great, too, or else she'll get lost in the jam. Great 
looks don't just grow on you unless you care and think about them 
and plan for them." 

And this planning can get you 
everywhere: you could be the 
best-dressed girl on the NGC 
campus and ultimately one of 
"The Best-Dressed College Girls 
In America." Diuring the on-cam- 
pus segment of Glamour's Tenth 
Annual "Ten Best-Dressed Col- 
lege Girls" contest we will be 
following their plan for finding 
the best-dressed girl on campus. 
We'll look for and evaluate can- 
didates on the following points: 
1) a clear understanding of their 
fashion types; 2) a workable 
wardrobe plan: 3) a suitable 
campus look — in line with 
local customs: 4) appropriate — 
not rah-rah — look for off- 
campus occasions: 5) individual- 
ity in use of colors, accessories: 
6) imagination in managing a 
clothes budget: 7) good groom- 
ing, not just neat, but impec- 
cable; 8) clean, shining, well- 
kept hair; 9) deft use of make- 
up (enough to look pretty, but 
not overdone): 10) good figure, 
beautiful posture. 

Our winner will be photo- 
graphed in a typical campus 
outfit, off-campus daytime out- 
fit, and a parly dress. These 
three photographs will be sent 
to Glamour with an official entrj- 
form, to be judged by a panel of 
Glamour Editors. Last year a 
record-breaking 301 colleges in 
the United States, Canada, and 
Puerto Rico submitted entries. 
These entries were so outstand- 
ing that in addition to the ten 
winners, a new category was ad- 
ded and five special mention 

(Glamour, August, 1965.) 

winners were chosen. 

The winners of Glamour's 
Tenth Annual "Best-Dressed 
College Girls" contest will be 
photographed by top fashion 
photographers in the late spring 
for Glamours August College 
issue. The first two weeks in 
June they will come to New 
York for a gala round of par- 
ties, theatre, sightseeing, and en- 
tertained by Glamour's friends 
in the beauty and fashion indus- 

In her welcome to the col- 
leges participating in Glamour's 
Tenth Annual College Contest, 
Mrs. Kathleen Aston Casey, 
editor-in-chief, says: 'The years 
when a young woman is in col- 
lege are the most formative of 
her life and the education she 
gets during these years should 
mold her into an intelligent, in- 
dependent, interesting, attrac- 
tive person. Being well-dressed 
and well-groomed is not a ques- 
tion of money or an extensive 
wardrobe. These attributes de- 
pend, rather, on the develop- 
ment of good taste and an in- 
telligent interest in one's ap- 
pearance that allows a young 
woman to enjoy her looks with- 
out being preo<"cupied with 

It is with the most sincere 
interest that we try to impress 
upon young college women that 
good looks, good grooming and 
a good mind are all-important 
goals to reach for in these 'high- 
ly competitive times."

"Affirmation: NGC" 

'Affirmation: Viet Nam". That says what we've been doing al 
year, and sums it up neatly. So why all the emphasis on this one 
movement? Several reasons, the first of which is that this is a 
program organized, run, and planned by Georgia college students 
entirely. This seems to us to be a tremendous display of confidence 
in the United States by people we know personally. These student 
leaders of A:V aren't the crackpots, the demonstrators, the sit- 
iners, the non-violents. They're clean shaven, intelligent, idealistic 
young men who see something that needs to be done and are doiTig 
it. John Nevin, of the Oglethorpe Stormy Petrel said it pretty well: 
"What is amazing is at this time the chances of success (of the 
movement) are very good." 

Another reason? The educational function of A:V. We can 
see, from our position way up here in the mountains getting ready 
to go down in the jungles, that many people do not understand why 
we are fighting in Viet Nam, a tiny country that doesn't seem to 
want or need our help. The guys working with "Affirmation" saw 
this too, and set to doing something about the ignorance that keeps 
many people from supptorting cur position. And they saw other 
things — that people believed the "students" in the demonstrations, 
burning their draft cards, were representative of all American 
college students. They mistook minority demonstrations for na- 
tional sentiment. Thus the poll that is being circulated over the 
entire state, with special emphasis on Georgia colleges. They're 
going to prove that the minority is just that — a minority. 

Well, where do we stand? Right in the middle. We're being 
asked to make the "ultimate sacrifice," if you'll pardon the cliche. 
The A:V program doesn't directly involve us, since it is not appro- 
priate that we actively participate since we are essentially a mili- 
tary sdhool. But it should have our support and our vote of confi- 
dence. It's designed for the thousands of citizens who will be 
eternally thankful that people like NGC grads were in Viet Nam 
when it counted. It's designed for those who cannot give their lives 
and their years to protect this nation. So we're with them, Sutton 
and the rest. And we will continue to be with them, just as we 
will continue to be with the troops. We feel privileged to be able 
to be a part of both movements.

Georgia Students Counter Draft Card Burners With 
State-Wide "Affirmation: Viet Nam" 

Emphatic public affirmation of the United States commitment 
to South Viet Nam is the goal of a three-phase state-wide student 
movement recently initiated at Emory University in Atlanta. 

Named "Affirmation: Vietnam" by its studnet organizers, the 
movement will begin with a comprehensive poll of the residents 
of Georgia regarding their opinions of the U. S. commitment in 
Viet Nam and will culminate in a massive assembly at Atlanta's 
new athletic stadium February 12, 1966 (free weekend). 

The third point of the plan of the organization is a state-wide 

speaker's bureau to help inform the public on the facts of the 

Viet Nam crisis — abroad and at 

A politically non-partisan ef- 

fort, "Affirmation: Viet Nam" 
has already received endorse- 
ments and promises of support 
from student leaders of all ma- 
jor colleges in Georgia. Includ- 
ed among these supporters are 
Dick Langford, president of 
Emory's Student Senate; George 
"Buddy" Darden, president of 
the University of Georgia stu- 
dent body; and Howard Tellep- 
son, president of the Georgia 
Tech student body, all of whom 
are charter members of the 
student steering committee. 

One of the main purposes of 
the organization is to present to 
the public the various historical 
bases for the United States 
present position in the Vietnam 

A statement prepared by the 
student organizers of "Affirm- 
ation: Viet Nam" explains, "In 
recent month world opinion has 
been focused on small segments 
of the United States' popula- 
tion who openly protest their 
government's involvement in 
Viet Nam. These objectors give 
strong voice to their convic- 
tions, and the nations of the 
world, friend and foe alike, 
must surely wonder at the 
strength of conviction of those 
who consider the United States' 
commitment an undeniable and 
irrevocable one. 

"The opinion of the majority 
cannot be obscured by the voice 
of the majority. This majority 
has a right to be heard and, in- 
deed, should and must be heard. 
However, there rests with the 
majority the task of making 


known to the world that our 
nation's commitment is suppor- 
ted by her people and will be 
fulfilled. This task can no longer 
be ignored." 

According to its constitution, 
"Affirmation: Viet Nam" 
through its three-ipronged plan 
of attack (consisting of the edu- 
cational effort, the opinion poll, 
and the assembly) will "analyze 
and present the factual found- 
ations of the position and com- 
mitment of the United States 
in the present Vietnamese con- 

The accomplishment of these 
goals will entail "the presenta- 
tion of public discussion groups, 
forums, panels, lectures, public 
assemblies or other similar pro- 
grams, the publication of papers 
pamphlets and books, and mak- 
ing known the results of public 
polls and other indicia of pub- 
lic opinion," the constitution 

Although the organization 
consists entirely of college and 
high .school students of the 
state of Georgia, it has received 
endorsement and much support 
from outstanding national lead 
ers of government, business, and 
the press. 

Included among these are 
Georgia's Governor Carl E. San- 
ders and Senators Richard B. 
Russell and Herman Talmadge; 
six Georgia congressmen: G. 
Elliott Hagan, Howard "Bo" Cal- 
laway, James A. Mackay, Char- 
les D. Weltner, John James 
Flynt, Jr., Russell Tuten and 
Augusta Courier Editor Roy Har- 

Other student leaders who 
have pledged their support to 
the program are Marvin Moate, 
president of the University of 
Georgia Student Senate; Charles 
MacDonald, presidamt of the 
Georgia State student body; Jim 
Hambrick, president of the Geor- 
gia State night school; Frank 
Hughes, president of the Ogle- 
thorpe student body; Debbie 
Rosen, president of the Agnes 
Scott student body; Jane Samp- 
son, president of the Spelman 
student body; and Tommy Tuck- 
er, president of the Emory Col- 
lege Council. 

Remar M. Sutton, Jr., a stu 
dent in the Business School a1 
Emory, is general chairman of 
the project. 

"Affirmation" Lists 
Varied Supporters 

Support for the Student Spon- 
sored "Affirmation: Viet Nam" 
movement comes from varied 
areas covering the state. The 
entire Georgia congressional del- 
egation — Sen. Russell, Sen. 
Talmadge and the Georgia mem- 
bers of the House — have given 
their backing to the program 
and will appear at the rally 
to be held February 12 in At- 

Support and votes of confi- 
dence have come from every 
element of Georgia politics — 
local mayors, including Mayor 
Ivan Allen of Atlanta, Mayor 
Stewart of Valdosta. Mayor 
Maclean of Savannah, and Mayor 
Davis of Albany have endorsed 
the "Affirmation" program and 
have made known their willing- 
ness to support it.

The Cadet Corps of North Georgia College has been asked 
not to actively participate in any demonstrations or rallies either 
enJorsing or denouncing U. S. Policy in Viet Nam. When asked 
lo cnininent on lhi>. Cadet Colonel ijwrence stated that "We at 
NGC are endorsing the U. S. policy and position by our actions 
alone. To ask us our position on the subject would be much like 
asking President Johnson if HE edoised his country's position." 

In his letter to Remar M. Sutton, general chairman of the 
"Affirmation: Viet Nam" program. Col. Lawrence mentioned the 
campaign to sell "Win In Viet Nam" stickers and the Brigade'i 
letter-writing program, as well as the fraternities' blood bank 
programs. Col. Lawrence also added that he "regretted tihat we 
cannot actively participate in ".Aiff:-ination: Viet Nam," but I 
assure you that our school, as well as myself, endorses the 
movement and that we are in sympathetic support of the move- 

The rally being planned by the "Affirmation" movement 
will be held in the Atlanta Stadium February 12, which is Free 
Weekend. The Cadet Bugler is planning to send representatives 
and other students may attend if it is clear th«y do not represent 
the student body of the Cadet Corps by action or uniform. 

The Bugler is also working with the Board of Directors in 
organizing a Speakers Bureau for Dahlonega and the surround- 
ing area in order to fulfill the educational function of the 
"Affirmation" program. Plans are being made to speak to local 
civic groups as well as the high school on the importance and 
significance of the U. S. position in Viet Nam.

Basketball Begins, 
F, C, or G As Tops 

Basketball at NGC officially started January 18 with the Delta 
Dogs meeting Foxtrot in a game that turned out to be a real 
thriller. Delta was really out for this game and played excellent 
ball, but was unable to stop the povverful Foxtrot team during the 
second half. At half time the score was tied, but a second half surge 
led by Worley put the Foxtrotters ahead to stay, and the final 
score was 61 to 49. The leading scorers for both teams were: Fox- 
trot — Worley, 30; Danforth, 11; and Williams, 9. For D«lt« — 
Moon, 10; Glisson, 9; and Kelley, 12. 

In the second game that after- 
noon, Charlie served notice to 
the other teams that they were 
a top contender for first place, 
as they downed Band by a score 
of 60 to 36. Top scorers for the 
two teams were: Ctiarlie — Cross, 
16; Patterson, 14; and Neigh- 
bors, 12; Band — Raulerson, 12; 
Thomas, 10; and Brinson, 10. 

In the first game on January 
19, Golf obtained its first win 
of the season by downing Bravo 
55-34. Leading scorers for Golf 
were: Roberts, 20; Flournoy, 16; 
and Jones, 8; for Bravo — Shan- 
non, 11; Burlew, 10 and Hem- 
mer, 5. In the second game Alfa 
defeated Echo in a game that 
turned out to be a record one. 
Alfa's Horta set a new individ- 
ual scoring record as he poured 
35 points through the nets. Top 
scorers for Alfa were Horta, 35; 
Turgeon, 10 and Smith, 8. For 
Echo, Campbell, 14; Dunn, 8 and 
Hackett, King and Parrish, B. 

January 20 found Delta and 
Golf locking horns in one of 
the best games played this year. 

The score shifted back and forth 
several times before the end of 
the game, and finally ended 
with the scores 47 to 40 in 
Golf's favor. The leading score- 
eiTs Golf were Roberts, 12; Flour- 
noy, 12; and Glowateh, 9; for 
Delta— Moon, 17; Kelley, 12; 
and Glisson, 9. In the second 
game Charlie contimued its win- 
ning streak as it downed Bravo 
by a score of 64 to 35. Leading 
scorers for Charlie were Cross, 
27: Patterson, 13; and Cravens, 
9; for Bravo, Shannon, 9; Terry, 
8, and Hemmer, 5. 

A large turnout is expected 
during the coming week, so plan 
to attend the games. One point 
of particular interest was the 
number of fouls committed in 
several of the games. In the Del- 
ta-Golf game the(re were 66 
fouls committed, and in the Del- 
ta-Foxtrot game there were 51. 
The way it looks now the best 
team this year appears either 
to be Foxtrot, Charlie or oGlf.

Bugler, Glamour Search For 
Best Dressed Girl On Campus 

Glamour's Ten Best Dressed Coeds contest is beginning this 
week at NGC. Following the interest in last year's contest, won here 
by Miss Nancy Pruitt, the Bugler will again sponsor the search for 
the sharpest coed on campus. 

Rules for winning are as sim- 
ple as looking neat and attrac- 
tive every day and in every 
situation. They include: (1) a 
workable wardrobe plan, (2) a 
clear understanding of her fash- 
ion type; (3) a suitable campus 
look, (4) appropriate look for 
dressy and off-campus occas- 
ions, (5) individuality in the 
use of accessories, (6) imagina- 
tion in managing a clothes bud- 
get. (7) good grooming — not 
just neat but impeccable, (8) 
clean, shining well-kept hair, (9) 
deft use of make-up, and (10) 
good figure and beautiful pos- 

Sound impossible? Not really. 
Glamour feels that every young 
college woman should be able to 
meet these standards with a lit- 
tle work and planning. The em- 
phasis is on individuality now 
— and the girl who looks like 
everyone else won't be a stand- 
out even if she is beautiful. 

The NGC contest will be run 
a little differently this year. 
Nominations for the Best Dres- 
sed honors will be accepted from 
Either individuals or campus or- 
ganizations (Ballot is found be- 
low), until February 21. Then 
a committee composed of rep- 
resentatives of the Bugler, Cy- 
iops, fraternities, Rec Council, 
and other organizaitions, plus a 
faculty member, wiU screen the 

nominees The top five and the 
campus winner will then be 
named, photographed and fea- 
tured in the Bugler. 

Keep in mind as you look for 
nominees for the Best Dressed 
contest that poise is important, 
too. A well-dressed young wo- 
man must know how to wear 
clothes, as well as how to make 
the best possible impression. 
Glamour is not looking for pro- 
fessional beauties or models — 
they want outstanding young 
women to represent the thous- 
ands of campuses across the na- 
tion. The location of every par- 
ticular college is considered 
when judging the local entrants. 

A two-week trip to New 'Vork 
in June as Glamour's guests is 
the prize for the lucky winners 
of the contest. The girls fly to 
New York via American Air- 
lines,, and make the elegant 
Barclay Hotel their headquar- 
ters. The activities of the two- 
week visit change from year to 
year, but there is always plen- 
ty of fun and excitement. The 
winners learn about the behind- 
the-scenes workings at Glamour, 
meet with leaders of the fash- 
ion and beauty industries, are 
restaurants in New York, meet 
entertained at some of the best 
celebrities and see Broadway's 
top hits. 

Eyes Right!!! 

A poised beauty, a love of tht- outdoors, and an accomplished 
talent in music identify this issue's Buylei- Belle.

in the songs she sings. Her eharm, wisdom, and wit — ". , . Nine- 
tenths of the boys on campus are immature — but then, so are 
nine-tenths of the giils." — have alreaidy placed her among the 
most well-known and well-liked on campus. To Mitch a Bugler

Boxer Is Greot, But 
Audience Lacking 

On Wednesday, January 12 the 
NiGC campus received a taste 
of "big time" entertainment as 
The Kafl Boxer Trio came on 
swingin'. The group, composed 
of piano, drums, and bass, play- 
ed jazz in every possible fashion 
and with every possible mood, 
ranging from Ellington to Bern- 
stein. The trio performed jazz 
arrangements of MY FAIR 
and delighted the audience with 
an original number entitled 
Dahlonega Blues. 

Mr. Boxer's group had talent, 
and they had wit, yet one sour 
note did ring throughoiut the 
performance — the audience. Of 
course there was an audience, 
but its numbers were small, and 
for a group of musicians dis- 
playing the talent of Mr. Boxer'.'- 
the audience size was a disgrace. 
Perhaps this was due to lack 
of publicity — How many peo- 
ple thought they were a barber- 
shop quartet, minus one? Or 
perhaps it was due to timing 
and lack of foresight — Wednes- 
night before classes instead of 
Tuesday night before inspection. 
Perhaps even competition with 
Batman and his Batadventures 
may have detained i few Bat- 
people, but apathy probably 
best explains the situation. 

The students cry for en/tertain- 
ment of collegiate ealiber, yet 
when it appears it is not sup- 
ported. G.ood music, culture, in- 
tellect? Maybe next time. 

We have 'had one excellent 
performance, but to hear an- 
other I fear we must go pur- 
chase his record, KARL BOXER

Riddler & Villions Face NGC's Batman • 

Jodi perspired and trembled 
in the dark, as he cowered un- 
der a heavy blanket. His senses 
strained at every sound ind 
his heart beat frantically. He 
knew they were under his bed, 
but would they stay there!!! 
If he dared put his bare loot 
on the floor, would he be pul- 
led under the bed and devoured 
in one gulp? Would they alt ich 
themselves like leeches ind 
pour their poisonous venom in- 
to his body? He pulled the 
thick, moist blanket over his 
head and the perspiration con- 
tinued to flow. It collected in 
the sockets around his eyes md 
dripped from his ears. It tick- 
led and stung, but he dared not 
move an inch. They were wait- 
ing, quietly gloating, he was 
sure. He was getting smothered 
and wanted to stick his rose 
out to breathe, but what if they 
had climbed up on his bed and 
were sitting on hLs blanket 
right now, just waiting for an 
opportunity to rip out the first 
bit of flesh they spotted!! There 
seemed to be no hope — he 
would surely die there! 

His first evening and nighi at 
North Georgia had been a ~eal 
nightmare His nerves were al- 
most shredded. It had all star- 
ted just before he went to bed. 
His squad leader, "the Riddler" 
had looked around the room and 
then with a mysterious smile, 
dropped to his knees' and l.xik- 
ed under his bed. He slcivly 
stood an with a frightful look 
he said, "You've got them un- 
der there — big, hungry, vicious 
ones." Taps sounded as he vas 
talking ". . . and turn out the 
lights and get in bed — r'.:;hi 

Jodi climbed into his 1: ink 
and began worrying. What .vas 
vicious and big, and hunj;ry, 
and under his bed? Now ^hat 
things were quiet, he could 1 ea 
tliem under there. Terror c. ep 
over him. Many thoughts ver 
through his mind. Can my room 
mate hear them'' Is he set red 
as I am? I wish he would ]uit 
snoring; it might antagc ize 

Somehow he survived the 
night. As his roommate step- 
ped down to the floor, he st; red 
in horror, but nothing happened 
Jodi. encouraged, leaped f.xjm 
his bunk to the desk top -How 
are we going to get them out 
from under the bed," he atked 
his roommate. 

Then it happened! His room- 
mate ripped off his robe and 
displayed his identity. It was 
BATMANII Batman grabbed the 
broom and bravely walked over 
to the bunk to do battle. He 
thrust the broom under the bed 
and made a fierce sweep. They 
came tumbling and rolling out 
across the floor. Jodi's oyes 
bulged. There were eight of 
them . . . eight giant, snapping 
dusters!!! Zock! Crunch! Bam! 
It was all over.

Scabbard & Blade Inducts 
Ten In Ceremony 

By H. .T. Glisten 

Last quarter Scabbard and Blade held its annual initiations and 
ten new members were inducted. These new members are as fol- 
lows: Rombert Rollison, Rusty Hightower, Tommy Glisson, Larry 
Stover, Dusty Pilcher, Ralph Colley, Terry Cornett, Howard Clayton, 
Joe Andrews and Lee Campbell. These boys enjoyed not only 
formal initiation which lasted four days, but also an informal period 
which lasted three weeks. 

During the informal period, 
the "dumb-heads" were allowed 
to study and continue being the 
fine students they are. Also, 
they gained valuable knowledge 
■on such subjects as "raid," 
"triple whammies," physical 
fitness, showers, care of uni- 
forms, sky diving, "Cong cham- 
bers," the states, the "Bar," and 
good banquets. Also, they stood 
several retreat and revelle form- 
ations, as well as run the moun- 
tains for exercise. 

Finally, time came for the 
formal initiation. The "dumb- 
squats" left school Thursday 
afternoon for a problem which 
lasted for four days and fifty 
miles. The problem was well 
planned and provided much 
practical experience for the old 
members, as well as the pledges. 
The area covered beautiful ter- 
rain and the pledges were given 
ample time to observe it. They 
took many scenic hikes and 
were constantly prone to taking 
short-cuts, especially through the 
persuasion of friendly farmers 
and partisans, who knew paths 
up the steep sides of the sur- 
rounding mountains. All the 
"dum-squats" w^e quite fat 
and well-rested after they re- 
turned to the campus on Sunday. 
This was due to the superb food 
and all the sleep they obtained. 
Their main delicacy consisted of 
C-rations and baked potatoes. 

Probably the dumb squats en- 
joyed the last night the best. 
The reason for this is that thev 

were permitted to climb up and 
down and run up and down 
Blood Mountain six times. These 
hikes were quite scenic and easy 
to climb, since it is only two 
miles to the top, only to hear, 
"Well, I guess the helicopter 
just left!" 

Finally the pledges returned 
to campus where they cleaned 
their equipment, which consis- 
ted of such things as packs, 
machine guns, "OS's," canteen 
belts, ANPRC-10 & 6 and knives. 
These were cleaned well and the 
pledges patiently waited for the 
final phase of the initiation. 
This came on Tuesday after- 
noon when they were formally 
accepted as members of the Na- 
tioal Society of Scabbard and 

This was quite a ceremonious 
rite and placed awe and a par- 
ticular patriotic awareness in 
each of tie pledges which will 
not be soon forgotten. Then it 
was over. Ten smiling faces em- 
erged from Memorial Hall, a 
part of a grand and respectable 
unit, standing a little taller for 
what they had accomplished, 
and proudly eyeing the new 
blue and red citation cord on 
their left shoulders. Yes, it was 
over, but not forgotten. 

Two of the new members 
were chosen officers in 1-12. The 
two that were chosen to these 
positions are Rembert Rollison, 
guidon bearer; and Tommy Glis- 
son, historian.

Tuition Fees Go Up 

As Georgia Solons Miss Budget 

Tuition fees for all University System schools will be 
raised 30 per cent beginning in the summer quarter, 1966. 
The hike in fees was announced by University Chancellor George 
Simpson after the Georgia Legislature refused to vote in the 
entire proposed $14.6 million increase in the System's budget. 

Tuition at NGC will go up to 45,600 students expected in the 
$307 per quarter for residents, 
Mr. H. H. Gilbert, comptroller, 
announced, and $417 for non- 
Georgia residents. Fees for off- 
campus students will amount to 

Chancellor Simpson stated 
that the increase was needed "if 
we are to remain where we are 
at this time." The Legislature 
voted in only $7 million of the 
System budget. 

"Student enrollment has ex- 
ceeded expectations," Chancel- 
lor Simpson said. Instead of the

Psychology Students Tour 
Mental Hospital at Milledgeville 

The Psychology Department, -under direction of Dr. Bellamy 
and Mr. Stevenson, sponsored an annual trip to the State Mental 
Hospital in Milledgeville April 6. Participating in the trip were 
students from the Abnormal Psychology course (453); the Coun- 
seling and Psycoherapy course (4fi3); and the Mental Hygiene 
class (417). 

The trip, which began early 
Wednesday morning, took the 
students on a tour of the various 
gildings om the bospiital 
grounds, and included observa- 
tion at the Administration build- 
ing, the huge kitchen, the psy- 
choneurotic wards of the hospi- 
tal itself, and the newly devel- 
oped occupational therapy build- 
ing. The group also enjoyed a 
well-prepared meal at the hos- 
pital dinning hall, and oppor- 
tunities to talk with doctors 
and ipatients. 

A highlight of the tour was a 
panel discussion betweem the 
students and a group of mental 

patients who were about to be 
released and transferred to the 
"halfway house" in Atlanta. 
The questions and answers dur- 
ing this period were both in- 
formative and candid, and many 
misconceptions dissolved, as the 
understanding of mental stress 
and pressure was realized 
through personal contact with 

In addition, the group toured 
the Chaipel of All Faiths, a struc- 
ture raised by donations from 
the citizens of the State, dem- 
onstrating their faith in the 
progress toward curing and 
treating the mentally disturbed.

Some Answers — 

And Some More Questions 

First, before you read this COMMENT, go read Scott Johnson's 
letter across the page. Read it "real good" — then come back and 
hear what we've got to say about his comments. 

Scott — and many others — are concerned with the state 
of affairs between students and administration on his campus. 
We are concerned over the use of our funds, especially in light 
of the increasing tuition fees, and we believe we have a right 
to have a say in this matter. If we're not mistaken, one or two 
students ARE consulted about assembly programs and such. And 
we're not knocking the programs — for the most part, they have 
been entertaining and enjoyable. 

What we are complaining about is the lack of interest on the 
part of those in charge of these programs. There is little or no 
advance publicity for any entertainment scheduled, even though 
each group provides the school with a wealth of publicity to use. 
"Attendance is required" — why worry about letting students 
know what they are required to attend? 

The feeling was especially noticeable at the extremely pro- 
fessional, well-staged, and entirely entertaining Special Services 
Show. Communication was so bad that the decorations "committee" 
thought the show was being staged by he USO up until time for 
the show to begin, almost, when one of the performers happened 
to mention that the letters over the door to the gym were wrong. 
And what happened after the show when a dance was being 
planned featuring the excellent Third Army Band? The cadets and 
their dates left in droves. Why? The band played the type of 
music usually suited for formal dances, which it was not, and the 
students were just plain tired of HAVING to attend things. They 
wanted some Saturday night freedom — and they got it by leaving. 

As for the fate of the fraternities on this campus, that seems 
to be a rather moot question at this point, since they are being 
killed — or slowly strangled — by administrative policies. Granted, 

uie fraternities have been guilty of several infractions of campui 
rules, serious and minor. But to say point-blank that fraternities 
have or serve no "useful" purpose on this campus is in error 
it seems to us. Any organization that fosters brotherhood and fallow 
ship for a group of cadets, with no regard for rank or class stand" 
ing, seems to be very much needed on this all-too-often divided 
campus. And the fraternities are trying. They started service' 
projects, to prove their worth. We wish they could be given the 
chance with an open mind instead of being the victim of "witch 

And whose fault is it that we had no say in BEX's fate? 
It's OUTS, in part. Because once upon a time we were given some 
say, some power to control our own organizations and activities, 
albeit with administrative supervision. It was called the Student • 
Council, and it died. It died like the fraternities are going to die 
and we killed it with apathy and disinterest and the irresponsibility 
we showed in not supporting the very thing that could have given 
us some of he freeom and choice we scream for. 

You're right, Scott — we need better communication. And a 
goodly helping of understanding, which can only be achieved by 
ACTIVE effort on our part as well as on the part of the adminis- 
tration. But we won't get an answer to this plea, if past actions 
are any indication, for every idea or innovation, every comment or 
criticism voiced on these pages has been ignored or dismissed by 
the powers that be. 

Why don't we give up? We've wanted to. We started to. But 
WE simply cannot ignore students who wonder why and want to 
know. WE cannot overlook letters like Scott's, because we believe 
that it is the function of a newspaper to raise questions such as 

So we've raised the questions. Is there a voice in all that apathy 
that will answer us THIS time? 



From A Two-Quarter View 

Perhaps, as they say, time tends to sweeten the memory, so 
maybe last year's good times are just a product of sentiment. 
But things are a good bit different from last year, and the pills 
seem quite a bit bigger this year. 

The "New System," as it is called (I'm not so sure it can 
qualify as a system) is one of this year's differences, and it is this 
writer's task to briefly review it. 

It began with a new Cadet Colonel and Brigade Staff. Then 
came the new frog orientation, designed to keep more cadets in the 
barracks with a minimum of parental complaints and a maximum 
of income. However, the lack of self-discipline displayed by the 
freshmen, or rather their reaction of shock when they discovered 
that ibig dogs bite as well as wag their tails, led to some of the most 
unnecessary hard feelings displayed yet on this campus. 

Authority rests on understanding and respect, and when a new 
idea is put into effect, and planned as delicately without these two 
ideals as part of the plan, it cannot work. 

The "new system" seems to have been a rather subtle flop.

Winter quarter has brought many questions to mind which 
so far have not been asswered, either officially or not, by the 
administration. Perhaps an administrative column could be given 
spaice in the Bugler in order to keep the students better informed. 
If such a column can be started, the following questions are some 
which should be answered. 

First, since students pay an activity fee each quarter, which 
is supposed to help pay for assemblies and social functions, 
Shouldn't they have the right to choose what they want or whether 
or not they desire to attend? With this type of attendance, the 
school could be sure of a more appreciative audience. A dance 
committee should be alloted a certain amount of money from the 
activity fee each quarter to provide for dances for the entire 
student body featuring top-name entertainment. 

Second, why was he administration the only group to decide 
the fate of REX fraternity? Being a member of Sigma Theta, I 
was especially interested in the way the disciplinary action was 
carried out. (Shades of the Secret Police!) Why aren't the students 
given more voice in these actions? We are going to be the future 
— all the intentions you have should help us get there. We should 
be able to have an open mind when we get out into the world 
instead of being stereotyped by the ideas of one or two men. 

I hope I didn't get off on too much of a tangent by explaining 
the two questions above, but it seems that communicaion has been 
lost between the administration and the student body. Muich dis- 
cussion is needed on the above subjects and I am fully in favor 
oif hearing 'both sides — as long as no one is scared of or wants to 
hide from such a discussion. 


How Many Colonels Are There 
On The NGC Campus 


It seems that there are more than two Colonels on the North 
Georgia College Campus. Tonight there was an announcement 
made over the PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM that "Colonel . . ." 
the reference being to a CADET of North Georgia. The only two 
Colonels that iiave anything to do directly with NGC are those 
assigned to the military department. Why then can't these men 
be shown respect by virtue of their rank as Array officers in the 
Army of the United States? They have earned their rank by long, 
hard service including combat. What have the CADETS done? 
Why are the Captains, Majors, and certainly the Sergeant Majors, 
First Sergeants, etc., that have earned their rank in the Army, be- 
ing, in a sense, degraded when the CADETS in the Cadet Corps 
are being referred to as "Colonel", "Major", Captain, "Sergeant", 
"SFC" and so forth down the line. 

We are all CADETS and CADETS ONLY in the eyes of the 
Army. We are not in the Army and the CADET officers are cer- 
tainly not there by virtue of their CADET rank. I am a CADET 
Sergeant ... As long as I hold any rank at North Georgia College 
it will be that primarily of a CADET. 

I feel that it is about time that we show the Army personnel 
that are in the Military Deparment, the proper respect due them, 
and that we as CADETS refer to each other as CADETS. 


More people in more positions know less about the future or even 
current happenings than ever before. You can still ask a frog 
. . . but even they don't know. Communications between cadets 
and staff, staff and military department, and thus between cadets 
and military department (yes, there was once a time when one 
could actually talk to them on a friendship level, as man to man) are 
often too muddled to gain information or ideas. Constructive criti- 
cism from all sides is often lost in the too-often felt "personal" 

And our immaturity? Are we really as immature as we are 
led to think we are? The seniors are the remnants of an old system, 
sure, but it worked! The juniors have given up trying, the Blade, 
which performs the most practkal function on campus, has been 
reduced to a secret society, defending itself from the new Inquis- 
itions, and this writer wonders about next year's leadership. Or 
what of the next two years? 

It's been a hairy ol' road so far, and it's been a good bit of 
hack. The leadership has achieved a status of such nebulous 
other-worldliness that an entire cadet corps is immaturely pouting 
and rebelling in the same manner that the leaders initiated. The 
automobile scandal(s), the intimidations, the lack of understanding, 
between men, and the bitterness and salvaged friendships which 
remain are unparalleled in our history, and they are certainly not 
signs of a healthy system. 

True, the new system, or any new system, needs a period of 
grace, because all new undertakings have to bend and fold on their 
journey from Hiind to effect — but the goal is eftectiveness! Not < 
just a system, but an effective system. Thus, if the steadily de- 
creasing number of contract takers is any valid signal, there is 
a void of effectiveness. 

This writer hopes that we will profit by the mistakes of this 
year, mistakes created by wrong choices and lack of insight into 
reality, and from them build a strong and effective military system, 
one which takes into account the reality of the times. 

The needs of a liberal arts education (not just lip service to 
academe) and the advantages of a character-building military pro- 
gram, free from prep school earmarks must accompany the needs 
for initiative and independence, self-discipline and training and 
freedom of thought and choice, not tradition orientation, and these 
basics cannot be carelessly omitted from the '67 version of NGC. 

Finally it cannot be avoided by anyone that we, as students 
of a state-supported institution for higher learning, are civilians 
of our country, above all, and that rights, not privileges, will con- 
tinue to accompany the increasing cost of next year's education. 
Our obligations to our way of life, to fight and defend it, are 
strong. But these rights, not privileges, must be worth our sacri- 
fice. We have not yet become an Army base, and our rights should 
not dwindle under suppression of ideas and academic freedom. 
How can we forget that . . .the defense of our country is also a 
right. Maybe we can see this next year.

end of last quarter. The Rifles 
won the meet by winning three 
out of the four events. NGC won 
the 22-5 Team Drill, the Fancy 
Team Drill, and the Individual 
22-5 Drill. Georgia won the Fan- 
cy Individual Drill. This last 
event was not one originally

Cent, of Higher Ed. 
Attract Industry 

Industries which depend 
heavily on engineers and scien- 
tists are being attracted more 
and more by communities which 
boast institutiong of higher 
learning, according to Robert 
P. Gerholz, President of the 
Chamber of Commerce of the 
United States. 

"Services of these key people 
are in such demand, and the 
desire for continuing education 
is so prevalent among them, 
that industry must accommodate 
them," according to Mr. Ger- 

Mr. Gerholz says there are 
also other factors which tend 
to attract skilled workers in 
general since they tend to go 
where they and their families 
will be happiest — clean, safe 
attractive communities with bet- 
ter school systems, better shop- 
ping conveniences and better 
variety of recreational spots.

Jim McPhail Named Top Shooter 
In Third Army ROTC Competition 

James W. McPhail, a Cadet at North IGeorgia College and the 
son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. MoPhail of Warm Springs, Georgia, took 
top ROTC honors at the National Rifleman's Association Sectional 
Match at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina last weekend. 
March 25-26. Firing on the conventional targets, he fired a score 
of 294, this being the total of his prane, kneeling and off-hand 

Jim is a third-quarter junior 
at North Georgia College and 
plans to major in Biology. He 
Is a Cadet Sgt. in the NGC 
Corps of Cadets. He is also the 
Co-Captain of the NGC Rifle 
Team and an excellent shot as 
seen by his taking the first 
place honors. Jim has fired 
shotguns and such all his life, 
but he had never done com- 
petitive shooting until his fresh- 
man year at NGC. He tried out 
for the team because all of the 
members of his cadet company 
were encouraged to go out for 
either the Rifle Team or the 
Drill Team. It certainly looks 
as if he made the right choice. 

During his first year on the 
team, while finding out just 
what it was all about he fired 
a year average of 248. This was 
a pretty good score for a first- 
year man but there was much 
improvement over the next two 
years. His sophomore year end- 
ed with an average score of 258 
which was good enough to give 
the second place team award to 

him. This year he is shooting 
in the 270's and 280's in should- 
er-to-shoulder matches with his 
present average now being 
around 267. 

Jim enjoys being on the Rifle 
Team and he has been one of 
the factors that has contributed 
to the great improvement of the 
team as a whole. 

He made several comments 
about being on the Rifle Team 
and about getting ready for 
and firing matches. He be- 
lieves that the NGC team men- 
tally prepares themselves for 
the opposing team that they are 
to shoot against. Seemingly this 
was the case as the team has 
had an excellent year. He said 
that firing on different ranges 
did not bother him particularly, 
but that the way these ranges 
were conducted with reference 
to spectators and such at times 
left something to be desired. 
Despite all these difficulties, Jim 
has come through with a fine

Majority Seven 
Meets Success 
At Oglethrope 

The Majority Seven, that well- 
known part of the N.G.C. social 
record, is meeting with suc- 
cess at every turn, and, it might 
be added, a bit of fortune. The 
"Sound on the Move" is begin- 
ning to move — around the 
area and around the state. The 
^addition of i4ew instruments 
and new equipment has made 
the sounds of rhythm even big- 
ger and even more pleasing. 
iThe seven m«n are geUting 
somewhere, and that somewhere 
is a reputation and a name. 

Since the last report, when 
the seven were introduced as 
a new sound on campus, the 
group has been up to many 
things. They have landed jobs 
at the liumpkin County Junior- 
Senior Dance and the Toccoa 
High Junior Prom. On campus, 
they have provided music for 
both Rex and Sigma Theta, and 
recently participated in a pep 
rally. But local success is not 
the" limit for our musical mas- 
ters, the "7" officially broke 
into the Atlanta Scene with 
the signing of a contract with 
Oglethorpe University to play 
for their Easter dance. 

Incidentally, all seven of the 
band are making plans to reside 
in Atlanta for the summer and 
are working on summer activi- 
ties. They have information 
about a summer stint at home of 
the city's night spots, and they 
have been in communication 
with Hugh Jarret, otherwise 
known as "Big Hugh Baby," 
now a DeeJay with WFOM Radio 
in Marietta. 

In addition, the group's mana- 
ger. Ford G'Segner, proudly re- 
ports that tape recordings are 
presently in the hands of an 
agent from United Artists Inc. 

And, as if these plans aren't 
enough, the unit has also been 
alerted to stay close in June 
for the arrival of an antvcipated 
telegram which would send them 
on a twelve thousand mile tour 
of the country. 

Order of Columbo 
Plans Spring 

The Mountaineering Club, the 
Order of Columbo, is thawing 
out with the Spring. They are on 
the climb and repel again. The 
club is made up of NGC Cadets 
that are interested in the sport 
of climbing and repelling. There 
are to be several new members 
taken into the club this week 
so when you see some nice, new 
Mountain tabs on fatigues, you 
will know that these are the 
ones. In order to get into the 
clilb, a person has to pass the 
physical test consisting of push- 
oips, pull-ups, and sit-ups. After 
this is completed there is a 
little run over Crown Mountain. 
Sometimes it takes a little push- 
ing and shoving to convince a 
person that he can get over. 
The run is hard but when it is 
over there is a sense of accom- 
plishment. There is only one 
thing that remains when this 
is complete, and that is to be 
voted in by the other members 
of the club. 

This Spring the club will be 
making several climbs to Mount 
Yonah and several at Winfield 
Scott. On Pa rents- Alumni-Armed 
Forces Weekend, the club will 
put on a demonstration to the 
visitors. It will be one of some 
of the methods and techniques 
used in climbing and reptelling. 

In addition to the training 
that is received in climbing and 
repelling, the club takes up the 
art of hand-to-hand icombat, and 
counter-guerilla training.

1962. Thus, during the years 1957-1960, -Mr. Young held three offices of 
idministration in the college simultaneously. 

Dean Young is a member of the Methodist Church in Dahlonega, as

tudy has been at the University, Duke, and Minnesota University. 

Mr. Stevenson served the State of Georgia as a teacher and principal for 
eventeen years before entering the Navy program, and coming to North 
Jeorgia College. In 1945, he was appointed Director of Guidance at NGC, and 
16 has held the position since.

We Surely Rank First In Missing 

iVhat We Should be Getting 

We've just decided one thing — we're going to give up our 
fight to recognize, or bring to life, the Student Council. We admit 
defeat — it hasn't worked, and no one seems to want to make 
it work, so we give up, for now. 

But we would like to make one recommendataion. We think, 
if the Student Council "officers" had even taken the time and 
trouble to check their mail box, things might have been a little 
different. Maybe they would have seen the piles of mail that has 
t)een accumulating since early January, most of this mail being 
offers from booking companies to schedule name performers for 
dates on campus. There are also notices about national student 
government associations and their programs, and conferences 
ind seminars that would be of interest to any student body mem- 
jer or officer (not "officer"). 

Would you like to hear what your Student Council "officers" 
lave "chosen" for you to miss since the beginning of Winter 
Quarter? At the top of the list is the Ramsey Lewis Trio, and if 
hat weren't enough in itself, we add insult to injury with Dave 
irubeck, Erroll Garner, Stan Getz, the Charlie Byrd trio, and the 
fclodern Jazz Quartet. But maybe our fearless leaders don't think 
my one on this campus is "intellectual" enough for top-quality 
azz. If your tastes run more to the popular sound in entertainment, 
ve missed such groups as (brace yourself) the Lettermen, Simon 
ind Garfunkle, Jay and the Americans, the Four Seasons, the 
Jeachboys, Chad and Jeremy, Dione Warwick, the Byrds and the 
Ungsmen. And Bill Cosby in the comedy department. 

For formal dances, where we usually want a good dance band, 
lur "officers" have passed up such bands as Lester Lanin, Buddy 
iorrow of "Night Train" fame, and Count Basie. You'd really have 
look a long way to find a school that had missed out on more 
amous groups than those, right? 

Just one last suggestion. Why couldn't the releases and notices 
bout such entertainments be channeled to another office? It is 
bvious that the Council will do nothing about them. At one time, 
i'e did have a Student Social Committee, whose major funcion it was 
set up the calendar for programs, socials, etc. for the quarter. 
Vhile the Committee did not originally set up programs and en- 
ertainments, it seems to us a natural thing for them to do. 
'he only problem lies in the fact there hasn' been a single meeting 
f this organization this year, as far as we know. Just another 
tiing that our duly elected "officers" muffed. 

These opportunities — and others available to this college, 
uch as speakers and symposiums — are too good to pass up. If 
inances seem to be the problem, then a solution is apparent. 
rse the money the Regents allocate for such "cultural" programs 
) have vital and informative speakers and a few really good 
classical" entertainments. Then, to spice up the program of 
etivities and to provide the really good entertainment we 
'ant so bad, use a little of our activity fees (which now goes to 
lings like the publications, clubs, rifle teams, etc.) and offset 
le cost with paid admissions at the door. A small budget cut 
)r these organizations would not be out of line, and how many 
f us would mind forking over a dollar or two to listen or dance 
) some of the groups mentioned? Many of us go to the University 
r to Atlanta to do the same thing every time we get the chance.

The solution is so obvious and workable that it is almost 
disgraceful. The real disgrace, however, is in the fact that we do 
not have, at the present, any type of organization that can 
coordinate this type of program. And the ultimate disgrace is that 
a school with the number of students and the "growth potential" 
that NGC is supposed to have does not offer its students a full, 
well-rounded, and interesting education to compliment classroom

Letters to The Editor . . . 

Around The Triangle 

Ah Sew! How Clean! 

Dear Editor, 

The time is come for the students of NGC to awaken to what 
is oiccuring on their campus. Night and day we hear complaints 
about the new system, the fact that a fraternity was dismissed 
from campus, and the lack of the type activities and entertainment 
that we want. The blame for this is laid eni.ely upon the admin- 
istration. Admittedly, the adminislration may be responsible for 
a good bit of the har.lsliips and la:k of morale among the student 
body, but let's take another look at the facts. 

This is your campus, and I emphasize YOUR campus, and 
the reason that many things are the way they are is your fault. 
The truth of the matter is that the sudent body is like a conglom- 
eration of apathetic vegatables. At this statement you will take 
offense, but examine the situation. The general concensus is that 
changes should be made, all right. Many of us agree and dispute 
the opposition to this from certain faculty members. The majority 
are in favor of certain changes. It is up to you, the students, and 
your Student Council, however, to make these issues known to 
the light people, and to give them your cooperation. The fact 
that we have a student council may seem strange to you, but 
tie tiuth is that we, by the "I could care less" attitude, have 
killed our only method of confronting the administration directly 
with our wishes. The student council and the student publications 
are the key to the things we want, but they cannot do it alone. They 
must have the support of an acive and enlightened student body. 
The fact that we have not had the guts to stand up for the things 
which we believe in does not mean that all hope is lost. At least 
there is still a chnce to regain our right to student government 
and a part in deciding issues concerning the student body. If we get 
up the nerve and go all out now, and not sit aroud and let the 
world go by, we have a chance. 

It seems to me that even some of the parents have realized 
what we haven't got; that the situation is not going to get any 
better, as a matter of fact, it will get worse, unless we do some- 
thing about it, starting now. You say that we are treated like 
children. As students of NGC we are in the best position possible 
to know what needs to be done and to take the steps possible to 
get it done. 

Let's get behind the issues and put the pressure on to get 
some form of student government reestablished (someone will 
have to take charge of the new student center and plan activities) 
and stand behind student publications. Then we can take issues 
and lay them in the hands of the administration and gain their 
cooperation. Remember that if the facts are constantly brought 
before the right people, there is no way that they can ignore them 
any longer, and they will take the action ncessary. If something 
is worth being said, it is worth being heard by all. 

Hal Williams 

It seems strange that every 
rumor which prevades the cam- 
pus seems to come by this writ- 
er, and although many actually 
manifest themselves in some 
form or another, the bulk are 
the common garden variety. 

The latest one concerns the 
possible pi ice hike of, not only 
the local laundrys (if one goes 
up, so will the other), but the 
local sewing shops as well. I 
guess inflation hits everywhere. 

The price hikes are not un- 
usual for any section of the 
country, or for the times, but 
what directly concerns this writ- 
er is that both of these services 
are essential to members of the 
corps of cadets, not to mention 
the ladies' colorful prints and 

We, as students, are essen- 
tially stretched over the prover- 
bial barrel, and there seems no 
end to the ever increasing cost 
of education. However, we 
should examine the facts be- 
fore we take to the streets 
in numbers, carrying rakes, 
sticks and pitchforks, (the arm- 
ory probably wouldn't be open) 
in protest of our diminishing 

The cleaners. Crane and West, 
do a very good job, especially 
in comparision to some of the 
big city folks, and are usually 
pretty good at supplying the 
campus wth rush orders and 
efficient service. However, the 
possible increase in cost, if 
effected, should not only con- 
tinue to offer the same service, 
but should be justified by a 
few of those "little extras." (I 
often wonder where they hide 
the hammer to smash my but- 

The sewing shops, though, 
are a slightly different story. 
The college this year granted 
"sewers rights" to one of the 
local shops, and the results were 
sheer havoc. I tbink there were 
good intentions, but with the 
pressure of several hundred 
screaming cadets, crying for fit- 
ted uniforms, and the military 
department crying for eighteen- 
inch cuffs, it was just too much 

As the cry of "equal oppor- 
tunities" rings in the sacred 
halls of government, it seems 
only fair that the other shops 
be given a chance (most of the 
uniforms ended up there, any- 
way) to compete for the starch- 
laden threads of the corps. In- 
cidentally, it wouldn't hurt to 
see the three clans get together 
and standardize their services. It 
would be nice to make only one 
trip to one place to get the same 
degree of shortening per inch. 

And thus comes the point. If 
the local trades do increase the 
price of service, they should 
have some justification for it, 
and we, the students, should re- 
ceive what we spend for. We 
must engage in some serious 
thought before we decide upon 
an attitude, one way or another. 

You know, I never liked the 
idea of having to accept any 
service at any price because 
there was no choice about its 
necessity. The barrel is begin- 
ing to scratch my back, and I 
hope that the scars will be worth 
it. Even if it's just a rumor, 
and it probably is (thus the en- 
tire column will go out in a 
burst of flame) the idea if being 
forced to rob my own pocket- 
book just never appealed to me.

This week's Eyes Right is Miss Linda Pettis, a little (5'2") 
transfer from our big neighbor Georgia. She is twenty years old, 
has brown hair and blue eyes and is from Edison, Georgia. 

She is a sophomore and this quarter is majoring in medical 
technology. Her pet peeve is the clock in the canteen and her 
favorite thing to do is to "goof-off." Linda said that the reason 
she transferred from Georgia was that she just liked things 
here better in general. One of the things she likes best is that 
she does not have to walk as far. 

So to Linda Pettis we say — Eyes Right and a salute from 
the Bugler.

season to come will really give 
us some fine pitching. The best 
hitters on this year's team are 
Hector Horta, Demis Buford 
(now out with an injury), and 
Roy Turgeon. Jim Adair has hit 
two home-runs for the 'Cadets' 
and Carter Haley and Terry Ross 
hit one apiece. 

Another thing that has really 
improved this year has been the 
support given the team. The 
people who have shown up for 
these games have really seen 
some fine ball. Especially evi- 
dent at each home ball game has 
been the instruments of Com- 
pany Band, with a brass drum 
and a couple of other pieces 
you can really raise some hell 
in support of your team. You 
have a great team this year, so 
why don't you come down and 
support each home game? It 
really gives the team a lift to 
have a bunch of people, on the 
exclusive North Georgia-type 
seats (the side of the bank), 
cheering the team on — so 
come out and support your team!

Comment — 

Responsibility — Ours and Theirs 

The year of the Frog — the year of the New Regime — the 
Year of the purges and witoh hunts, the car scandles and Tact 
Board meetings — the Year of the Good Fairy — the Year of the 
New Freedom. It's almost over, especially for the Seniors. And for 
all of us, it seems like a good time to take a new look at what 
has happened on campus this year, and why. 

It is not in our field to comment technically on the military 
system — we're an outside observer, as it were. What we want to 
sav about the New Regime and all that it connotates could apply 
to any cadet or coed on campus, regardless of his degree of in- 
volvement with the military system. We want to talk about 

There have been many comments this year on a subject that 
is talked about on every campus in the U. S. — freedom of 
actions. We've cried "Police State," we've wondered why we 
couldn't do many of the things we were legally able to do, but 
most of all we've wondered about the position of the college and 
its administration is controlling our lives. "In loco parentis" is 
the legal term, I think — the concept that the college takes 
the position of the parent when we leave home and enroll here. 

And here the debate begins. Should the school, by virtue of our 
enrollment, have such power? Should we be subject to the 
regulations governing our actions when many of us are free and of 
age? We think the important thing to remember in this seemingly 
endless circular question is that responsibility comes with freedom. 

We have some freedom of action. Students are permitted to do 
anything not forbidden in the rules of the college, the Blue Book, 
or the Lewis Hall regulations. We have this freedom. We have 
these rights. But one individual's rights extend only so far — they 
stop where another person's begin. And when we enroll in this 
school, any school, or, reality, join any institution or organization, 
we trade freedom of atcion for compliance with the stated rules. 
This is not to say that we give up any freedom, but that our 
freedom has a price — responsible actions and behavior, regard 
for the rights of others, and, again, compliance with the rules. 
Alas, friends, it's this way the world over — freedom always has 
a price. 

O. K., now let's look at the opposite side of the question — 
the school's responsibility to us. (Did you say, "Now we're getting 
somewhere?") We are paying money for our education, usually 
our parents' "hard-earned" money, supplemented by tax money. 
Therefore, all other things being equal, responsible and and "law- 
abiding" students have the right to expect certain things from the 
school. They have the right to expect as good a faculty as the 
college can afford. They have the right to expect adequate, com- 
fortable facilities for living and learning. They have the right 
to expect recreational facilities that will supplement and enhance 
their education. They have the right to expect some cultural and 
intellectual opportunities that would not be available to them if 
they were not enrolled in a college. And, most of all, they have 
the right to expect that the college will provide every opportunity 
for them to learn to govern and control their own acivities and 
'behavior. After all, what is the value of an education if not to 
teach one how to sucessfully live a mature and satisfying life, 
without the dependency of childhood? 

We're not going to stick our neck out far enough to comment * 
on where this campus is lacking in these basic rights. We hope it 
is apparent that both sides are lacking — students and school. 
We've failed to take the opportunity offered us to govern our- 
selves, that's for sure. And some of our actions this year indicate 
that we've misused the rights of others and the freedom granted 
lus. This we see clearly, as clearly as we see the areas in which 
the school has failed to live up to its end of the bargain. 

One final comment. We may be idealistic, with the idealism of 
all youth, but we think we do have the right to expect that we 
be treated fairly, that we be dealt with uniformly. If we have not 
paid enough for our freedom by violating a rule, by not taking 
the responsibility, then we deserve, we expect, to pay with a loss 
of freedom or some other restriction. But we do expect this "pay- 
ment" to be handed out without regard to any of the many little 
influences that so often interfere with fair judgement. 

After all, this is all we ask of our parents, isn't it? And all 
they ask of us? "In loco parentis."

The Faculty Speaks 

Ed. Note: This is a n«w saries of articles designed to report 
faculty comments and opinions on issues concerning the college. 
The first airticle in this series co'ncerns the question, "What 
changes do you thinl< are needed at NGC?" 

would do the job as well 
as the students desire it to 
be done. 

5. More emphasis on social 
functions could be good; 
more formal dances would 
seem in order. 

6. A good idea would be to 
clear out an area in the 
canteen and place a Juke 
box there so that students 
could come in and dance 
at night. 

7. Less emphasis on cadet 
rank seems to be needed. 
Cadets should be able to 
call each other by their 
first names. 

8. Cadets should accept the 
responsibility which comes 
with rank. 

9. There should be a realiz- 

ation of the responsibili- 
ties and duties rank calls 
for, and that these are 
separate for friendship. If 
a man is mature enough, 
rank should not res-ult in 
a breakdown in a command 
or execution of orders. 

Mr. Claude LcffingwcU was 
also asked to comment on this 
first issue in the faculty opfnion 
series. Mr. Leffingwell made 
these comments: 

"There should be, and needs 
to be a considerable change in 
the attitudes of students con- 
cerning matters affecting them. 

student government due to the 
conflict involved. The answer 
lies with the student body and 
their ability to separate them- 
selves from battalion and com- 
pany preoccupation, and to 
keep the race for student coun- 
cil officers from becoming a 
popularity contest. 

"There also appears to be a 
total lack on the part of srtu- 
dents of willingness to get 
involved. This may be because 
they often think they are at 
NGC to learn only how to be 
soldiers. They are here, how- 
ever, to learn how to be indi- 
viduals, also. However, students 
often take too much authority. 
Cadet officers are often an ex- 
maple of this. Cadet officers 
should have no authority to 
discipline students. Cadet rank 
should end on the drill field. 
This situation is not the Army, 
and is in fact nothing like the 
Army. Cadets often play like 
they think soldiers should act, 
and they arc often very juve- 
nile in their actions. A cadet 
disciplinary board to work with 
the commandant seems entirely 
to be in order. This board should 
not be made up of cadet officers 
but of representatives of each 
class, and should not be 'stack- 
ed' by the cadet officers. The 
board, with the command&nt, 
could set up guidelines for ac- 
tion for any stick wfhich ia 
thought to bo unfair." 

Capt. Phillip Blanton was se- 
lected to be one of the first 
faculty members interviewed. 
Capt. Banton commented on 
some changes he woud like to 
see at NGC, and listed some 
specific points that he felt need- 
ed to be consiflercd. 

1. There should be more of 

a class and school spirit. 

2. A more effective student 
government which would 
enforce a working honor 
system is needed. 

3. This student government 

should aid in making se- 
lections of student pro- 
grams on the basis of stu- 
dent opinion. 

4. The head of this govern- 

ment should be a man 
who, regardless of rank, 
(Continued an cOL. 3 

Students should be willing to get 
out and work for the things 
I hey want. There are many re- 
sponsible students on this cam- 
pus and they should be put in 
a position to do what is needed. 
If these leaders are not effec- 
tive, new ones Should be chosen. 

"At NGC we have two types 
of government — military and 
social. The social government is 
nothing! Social activities are 
just as important or more im- 
portant to the college as the 
military portion. 

"The Student Council has done 
nothing this year, due to un- 
known circumstances. This 
should and must be changed.

in the military structure should

Now It Begins — 

Next year has possibilities, and it has probabilities. There 
is a new concept of thought on campus — student opinion. This 
is the first attempt in many an egotisical day to analize the 
environment into which we have been cast, and suggest possibili- 
ties for next year. Student opinion, about programs, government, 
ad academic freedom, and social activity is at a level of new in- 
novation — a level of constructive criticism. 

Our self-study has thus far revealed that we are a standard 
school; that we meet standard requirements. But, as any student 
knows, there is a canyon of difference between a grade of "C", 
or passing, and a grade of "A", or excellent. It is this difference 
which concerns the writer, and should concern each situdent 
and faculty member. 

Next year there will be changes. No one person knows — for 
sure — what they are or how they will affect the students and 
faculty of NGC. These are the possibilities! But student opinion 
and pressure will be greater than ever before, and long-needed 
changes are being thought about now, and here is where the 
new ideals, be they radical or conservative, are to be utilized. 

This writer thus appeals to the awakening student body — 
think about the possibilities and make them probabilities. Think 
deeply, maturely, and constructively about your college and its 
possibilities. Then make your suggestions, first of all, to the 
newly inspired student council — put your faith in it, and analize 
our good points (yes, we have many), and think about the bad 
points. Then think about the changes needed. Our college could 
be the best in the state — let's think about the changes and con- 
tinue to make our opinions known. 

Our school needs the support of the student body, its criti- 
cism, its praises. There should be both ... A forewtard move 
can't be made by the faculty and administration alone — it must 
have student opinion to help it. Next year is possibly the best 
ever at NGC — let's make that probable. 

Letters To The Editor 

Dear Editor 

I'm writing this letter for two reasons: One, I feel it needs to 
be said; two, I would like some reply (preferably from the faculty). 

I've just witnessed one of the best jobs of bush beating 
imaginable and around here that doesn't seem to be uncommon. 
I'm refering to the address by President Hoag to the assembled 
cadets and the few girls who felt or hoped something would 
be said. 

In this address President Hoag stated that we were a very 
cooperative student body. Why not? What does it get you to object 
to things you know are incorrect? For instance, what are these 
changes that might occur after "the committee's" recomendation? 
Will any changes actually be made since we met all the require- 
ments to maintain accreditation? We are to be vitally affected — 
why can't we know? 

I hope I've said enough to elicit comment from those at 
least partially responsible for this plight — the faculty and 
administration. We students can accept the blame for letting 
things go without comment, but perhaps it isn't too late.
