foreword 

The Laurel is a book of memories from Mors Hill College. 
Into a few short pages you will find crammed a year's life. The 
whole story can't be found here, only pieces, moments designed 
to jog a thought, a remembrance. 

The time for remembering is not 1967; the past is still linked 
with the present. Skim the pages for now, the pictures ore to be 
laughed at and enjoyed. 

But when the mist of time clouds the memory and you are 
for from these mountains. The Laurel will, for a moment, 
transport you bock across time and distance. You will catch 
the face of a friend, a roommate, a fovorite teocher. Then 
there will be a smile, perhaps a tear, but always a memory. . .

September — it all began 

void to be filled with new life 

a new life to be shocked into reality 

acquisition of headaches, fear, brain wrinkles 

satisfaction, depression, friendships, faith and love 

rejection of outmoded ideas, despair, ourselves 

prejudices, and the fear of being rejected 

everything top priority, a false state of nothingness 

>. 
would you believe 

hoarseness and excitement brew in the lions den 

a quick trip down the road — that first quiz 

empty mail boxes — an endless maze of umbrellas 

anxious wait for rush invitations — our morning hymn is 

why? — ^why not? quiet walks through nonlondon fog 

bridge hands grossly underbid 

papers, money, luck always overdue 

Winston, marlboro, kent, salem, etc. 

that moment of realization and reassurance 

beauty and life, hand in hand 

youth at its fullest 

a young man — a young woman 

a time to live, a time to cry 

a time to sow, a time to laugh 

a time to reap, a time to question 

a time — a place 

an endless circle often out of proportion 

striving to be well rounded 

see you in September

The 19IW lainri i^ dc.li<;iu-.l u, ,, in.in wlu.sc- rcconl ol service 1" Mars Hill College speaks 
lor ilseli. His hours ol ^u>yk ^o inuouiued; he makes no ineiui.>n of them. In his work as 
adviser lo the lainri and the /n///o/), he serves as phof.grapher and < h.el moiale booster, while 
assisting in all areas ol pidjlication. 

Siiue joining the t.. liege stall in 1951, he has accepted responsibility willingly and has carried 
out his duties in a truly superior manner, maintaining at all times a ivarmih and friendliness 
of spirit that is uniquely his own. An alumnus ol Mars Hill himself, he l.o^v superMses all alumni 
work. In addition, he is in charge of all publications ,ind nearly all college publicity. His 
title ol Director ol I'liblic Inlormation seems hardh adecpiatc to cover the scope of his work. 

Because of his dedicated service, his never ending cooperation, and his sincere interest in 
young people . . . we, the students, respectfully . . . and gratefully dedicate the J 967 laurel to 
Mr. Walter Smith.

his own desire for "emphasis on excellence." He was unanimously elected to succeed the re- 
d'^^'.'^j ^°^' Blackwell. The new president, a native of Roanoke, Virginia, received his 
B.iVI. degxee from Baylor Uni^'ersity, his M. R. E. degree from Southern Baptist Theological

hopehillv planneil her talent and larclully selected her evening gown. Three experienceil judges

who had pre\iously judged "Miss South (Carolina" and "Miss Illinois" pageants; Mrs. Teresa

Mars Hill. 

Rehearsals were lew and lar hetween, but each (onlcslaul reluscd to betonic discouraged and 
seemed determined to represent her class or dorniiion well. Suddenly "On a Clear Day" became 
a reality and no longer a dream. The stage was set and the auditorium was full. Contestants 
began singing, acting, and smiling their way through the ])ieliniinary rounds of judging. With 
tension mounting, the judges chose five finalists: Beverly (Pansier, the representative from 
Spilman Dormitory: Janis Elam, the representative from the Junior Class: Cornelia Akers, the 
representative from Stroup Dormitory; Ann Peebles, the representative from Fox Dormitory; 
and Debbie Bauer, the representative front Brown Dormitory. 

The tension was eased somewhat by tlie annotuuement of Becky Sluder, the Freshman Class 
rejjiesentative, as "Miss Congeniality" anil the farewell speech of a radiant and vivacious "Miss 
Laurel" of 19()6, Pam Culler.

Janis Elam, chosen to represent 
the Junior Class, brought tears to 
many eyes with her rendition of 
the graveyard scene from Wilder's 
Our Tow?!; but quickly changed 
those tears to delight when she 
reappeared on stage in a shimmer- 
ing white crepe sheath.

1967 miss laurel pageant 



As quesiions were asktd ol eacli (il the five finalists, "On a Clear Day" was 
rapidly reaching an exciting climax. The judges, impressed by the beauty and 
talent of the girls, managed at last to dioose the first runner-up — Janis Elam. 
Finally came the long-awaited announcement of the new "Miss Laurel" who 
was as bright as the sun in the sky "On a Clear Day." She was contestant number 
four, Miss Beverly Cansler. As the audience rose U) its feet in a standing 
ovation, the new "Miss Laurel" smiled through tears of joy and surprise 
beginning her reign as yearbook queen. 

Much of the success of the 1967 Miss Laurel Pageant can be attributed to 
the efforts of Bill Carter, general director of the event. His work began early 
in the fall and continued through long months of planning and preparation 
climaxed by the pageant itself. His cooperation and patience were invaluable 
in the production and presentation ol this exciting event.

Each Tall there comes lo Mais Hill an air oi excitement which 
unmistakably spells Homecoming. Homecoming 1966 will doubtless go 
down as one of the most memorable of all time. Not only did the 
college preserve the traditions of this special event, but also combined 
them with the inauguration of a new president. 

The weather was beautiful and so was the Queen, Miss Brenda Dunn, 
a senior English major from Clinton. She was crowned by Dr. Bentley 
in one of his first duties as the new president.

honor clubs 



Honor clubs have always played an important part on the Mars Hill 
campus. Membership in the clubs is by invitation. In order for a student to 
receive an invitation he must have a B average, at least thirty quality points, and 
no grade lower than a C. Meetings are held monthly and students are given an 
opportunity to gather insight into their fields of special interest by coming 
together and sharing ideas. They are often given a chance to hear outstanding 
speakers or participate in off-campus field trips. Active honor club members 
find the experiences afforded by the club to be both rewarding and memorable.

The purpose of student government is to advance the education and growth of the individual by giving stu- 
dents the opportunity and responsibility of governing themselves. 

The four years' existence of this organization has shown that students can and will assume the task of governing 
themselves seriously; however, much work is yet to be done. The percentage of those students who are willing to 
take responsibility not only for themselves but also for the betterment of the group needs to be greatly expanded 
This is an area in which S.G.A. must strive. Through the continuing, purposeful efforts of both'students and in- 
terested faculty and administrative staff members, student affairs will be handled more and more effectively. 

As in the past years the student government has increased its activities. Rat Week, the Emory & Henry bus 
trip, and an enlarged Derby Day were the projects of S.G.A. The Christmas projects included sending S250 via 
Billy Graham to the soldiers in Viet Nam and a Christmas party for some underprivileged children in the com- 
munity. b.G.A. helped establish an English-speaking library at Corvallis Colle,ge in Chile by sending books collected 
from tlie student body. Other projects included the initiation of a car wash, a study room, and a President's Council.

Ptihajjs the most distinguished honor a student can receive at Mars 
Hiil is that of serving as a College Marshal. Sixteen students receive 
tliis honor each year. 

The ,\cademic Standards Committee chooses the eight men and 
eight women with the school's highest quality point ratio. These selec- 
tions are carefully checked and approved by the faculty. Each spring 
they are installed for a one-\ear term. 

College Marshals have the distinct honor ol ushering at graduation 
and receiving college guests. They serve the students by ushering at 
recitals, plays, movies, seminars, and all other formal and informal 
activities on campus.

The Hilltop is Mars Hill College's only newspaper. It is written, edited, and pub- 
lished twice monthly by sttidents. It is designed to ftirther communication among ad- 
ministration, faculty, and students. It serves also to report news of campus social and 
culttiral events as well as general interest features. 

Over the past year, the Hilltop has especially emphasized campus opinion on matters 
of local and national interest. It initiated a movement this year whereby it can also function 
as a policing agent of student government, student conduct, faculty techniques, and ad- 
ministrative decisions. Emphasis has also been placed on making the Hilltop's format as 
modern and clean as possible.

It was the opinion ot the 19(i7 liiincl staff that the 
greatest qiiatities belonging to Mars Hill College lie 
in the students. That is why in this yearbook we have 
sought to capture the living elements of the college, 
the people who make it what it is. We tried a whole 
new approach, adapting each page from front co\er 
to back so that the new laurel is not a carbon copy 
of the countless volumes that preceded it. Nor does 
the '67 Inurel mereh represent the physical aspects — 
the buildings, the campus itself — but it has attempted 
to capture the heart, the very soul of college life. 

The 1967 laurel is different. It has not been an 
easy task to achieve the things we attempted this year. 
An efficient and well-organi/ed staff was requited, 
many hours, and much determination. The resufts are 
rewarding, however, and the staff feels that the laurel 
will be a source of great pleasure to the students now 
as well as in the future, when memories from the 
years at Mars Hill College will stand out as some 
of the very best.

social service 



sigma alpha chi 



Sigma Alpha Chi was lounded in the spring ot 1965 as the 
sister social-service sorority to Sigma Kappa Lambcla. It offers 
each Mars Hill coed a chance to prove her sincerit\, achie\ement 
and usefulness to herself and her fellow students. 

This year the sisters of Sigma Alpha Chi. with Dr. and Mrs. 
James Jordan and Mr. and Mrs. James Cox as sponsors, chose 
to wait until second semester to conduct formal rush. This 
did not handicap them at all as they carried out such successful 
projects as making and selling corsages for homecoming, helping 
with the presidential inauguration, and adopting a South Viet- 
namese orphan. They also teamed up with Sigiua Ka]jpa 
Lambda for the annual fall formal. 

The beginning of the second semester proved no different 
as the energetic sisters of Sigma Alpha Chi worked for fulfill- 
ment and enjoyment in helping themselves and others.

Sigma Kappa Lambda was founclec;! in the spring of 1965 as the first 
social-service Irateinity on campus lor male students. The three goals 
of the club are service, companionship and loyally to self, mankind, 
family, community, college, and God. 

This year's Sigmas, with Mr. Bob Melvin and Mr. Jack Grose as 
sponsors, began the new school year with high hopes and anticipation 
lor another great year. Part of this anticipation became reaiity when 
the yearly pledge class was chosen. Plans began to take shape for the 
annual "fall fling" and other social events. The brothers helped with 
the presidenti;il inatiguration and homecoming and also helped to raise 
money for the Student Government Association's Viet Nam fund. 

As the second semester began, the brothers ol Sigiria Kappa Lambda 
were determined to work toward another successful semester. New 
projects and activities were suggested and once again vague plans began 
to take the form of tangible and enjoyable realities.

in memoriam 




mi . Joseph chvooil lubci Ls 



Mr. |. hlwiiod Roberts, associate prolcssoi ol music and a much beloved liieiid of all, 
died on No\eml)cr 17. 1966. 

Ml". Roberts became a member ol the college iaciiltv in 1944 and. in his twent\-two years 
as prolessor, had infiuenced many lives. His deep lo\e lor people was evidenced each day of 
his life; his cle\'otion to God s])oke for itself. 

We the students will always remember him as "Mr. Elwoocl." He was a devoted teacher 
and an excellent musician; but more, he was a Christian, and our friend. 

Reverend John G. Hicks, in his eulogy to Mr. Roberts, portrayed his Iriend well when 
lie said: 

He encouraged the downhearted and set them on the road again. 

He was persistently patient imtil the score was learned. 

He was what you saw, for he knew no shame; he was sincere. 

His heart was tender and his eyes were full at times. 

He readily forgave and asked forgiveness all along the way. 

He lived for others even beyond his strength, and he was faithful to the end. 

Such a man was Elwood Roberts.

On September 17 ihe Mars Hill Lions openeil their UKili lootball 
season playing host to the Indians of Catawba College. The Indians 
were favored to scalp the Lions, but Mars Hill had other things in 
mind as they jumped off to a qtiick l,S-7 first quarter lead. The Lions 
played valiantly and the showers of rain did not dampen the avid 
Mars Hill spirit; but a victory for the stubborn Lions was not meant, 
and Catawba slipped by Mars Hill 28-13. 

The Maryville College Scots invaded the Lion's Den on October 1 
with both teams longing for the taste of victory. Maryville took a 
H-(l halftime lead, but in the second half, the lions stiffened and 
held the Scots to a fourth quarter field goal. The game ended 17-0 
in favor of Maryville, as Mars Hill ivas unable to cope with Mary- 
ville's balanced offense. 

The first road trip for the Lions was to Jefferson City, Tennessee, 
to meet the powerful Eagles of Carson-Newman College. The 
previous meetings between these two teams had producetl hard- 
fought, -ivell-played games and this one promised no less; however, 
the Eagles were ready for this one as they pro\'ided a victory for a 
large homecoming crowd at the cost of the Lions, 28-0,

proved lo be disaslrous. Cloncord Stale inircased their record

iIk' powerlid Wasps, who finished their season 9-1, took the 
lead in tile third quarter and coasted to a hard earned 21-7 
\ictory. However, the validity ol the game is still in cjuestion 
as the N.A.I. A. is investigating the Wasps eligibility which may 
produce another victory lor the Lions. Statistic-wise, the Lions 
oul])layed their opponents in this game. 

For their last road game the Lions met theii loiinh small- 
college power in a row in the lorni ol the Tigers ol Georgetown 
College from Kentucky. Once again playing a good game against 
I'ormidable opposition, the Lions lell lo deleat at the hands 
ol the Tigers 16-0.

On November 5 (he Mars Hill campus was invaded by a 
host of welcomed inauguration and homecoming visitors and a 
somewhat unwelcomed Western Carolna football squad. The 
Catamounts took advantage of the over-anxious spirit of the 
Lions and coasted to a 62-0 victory. The team, students, and 
visitors were somewhat disillusioned, bin vowed that things 
would be different next year. 

The last game of the long season brought Frederick College 
of Portsmouth, Virginia, to the Mars Hill campus. The Frederick 
team, fresh from a homecoming up-set over Randolph-Macon, 
scored on the kick-off and many fans began to prepare for 
another long afternoon. But the fired-up Mars Hillians fought 
back and went on to win the game 20-19, thus ending Frederick's 
winning streak. The Lions thereby ended the season with the 
sweet taste of victory!

With the season over and the statisiits ol each game

Dyar was the rushing yardage leader with 272 yards 
gained for an a\erage of 4.69 yards per carry. Quarter- 
back Danny Shook completed' a total of 28 passes for

The Kuowllle Nexiis-Sciiliiiel named Doug Echols to 
its honorary all-star team as a defensive tkckle. Bill 
Dyar, Tommy Nix and Monty Vess were given honorable 
mention, which is comparable to a second team vote. 
On March 7 at the annual Football Banquet, awards, 
voted on by the team members thcmsehes, were presented 
to the following gridders: Rick Dudley, Best Lineman 
trophy; Jerry Blevins, Best Back trophy and Bill Dyar,

The Lions were given a chaiue Lo prove tlieir mettle wlien they opened 
the season on December 2 at home against the Braves of Pembroke. The team 
could not find that needed touch and (ell to the opponent 100-76. Three suc- 
cessive losses lolloived: a hard-fought 98-78 loss to the highly touted Eagles of 
Carson-Newman; a lopsided 105-67 loss to Tusculum College, and a 99-75 loss 
to Milligan. 

With a longing for victory the Lions traveletl to Bristol, Tennessee, for 
a match with King College. Mars Hill, led by the "bouncing Gibson twins," 
scored an impressive 77-7-4 overtime win for its first victory of the season. 

On December 15 the Lions closed out their pre-Christmas schedule with an 
important game with Asheville-Biltmore. Accompanied by a host of Lion 
Supporters, the team played a great first half, but fell in the second to give the 
bulldogs a 84-64 victory. 

A somewhat belated Christmas jiresent in the form of a 101-99 upset win 
over the Tusculum Buffs was an excellent way to begin the new year. The very 
next night, the Lions trounced a less aggressive St. Andrews ball club 110-80, 
rolling in dieir third victory. On January il, the cagers defeated Nfilligan, 80-79' 
a team who had beaten Mars Hill earlier in the season.

.\iiei a mucli needed semester break, tlie Lions returned to 
action on januaiy 27 against Pembroke. The Uraves once again 
proved to be too mucn lor liie Lions as they romped to a 
y2-81 victory. The next niglit. in nearby Laininlnng. Mars Hill 
once again soimdly deleated St. Andrews 102-85. 

1 he team traveled to Emory and Henry on February 2 only 
to lose the game oir loul shots 10-1-87; however, two days later 
the Lions retmned home to score an impressive 88-78 win over 
Maryville and set a school record by pulling down 65 rebounds. 

On February 6 Mars Hill students packed McConnell Gym- 
nasitmi as the Lions tackled the highly touted W'oHord Terriers. 
Although coming out on the short end of a 77-72 score, the 
team broke the newly set record of 65 rebounds by pulling 
down 71. For the second consecutive night, the Lions were 
cheered on by a mass of su])porters as they came from behind 
to nip Asheville-Biltmore. 72-69. 

The next task facing the fast improving Lions was NAIA 
power Pikeville. Mars FJill had upset the Bears last year and 
were determined to do it again. But another win was not in 
sight as the Kentuckians blistered the Lions 112-64. .\gainst the 
Terriers of Wofford in their second meeting, the point spread 
was again only five points as the South Carolinians defeated the 
Lions 75-70. 

.After beating the Maryville Scots 89-86, the Lions went on 
to another upset to end the season. Romping over the Wasps 
of Emory aird Henry 98-87 in the local high school gymnasium 
the Lions, proved that the gymnasiuirr does not make the team. 
This game was the swan-song for seniors Bob and Bill Gibson, 
George Scruggs and David \\'ebster, and for sophomore Ray 
Randall, wlio is transferring.

Witli nine lettermen returning and a host of freshmen and 
transfer talent to choose from. Coach Don Henderson's outlook 
for the 1967 season was bright. The Lions pla\ed an eighteen- 
game schedule and enjoyed their first season as a member of 
N.A.L.A.. District Number 26. In the last three years of senior 
college play, the Lions have compiled a 27 and 10 record. Last

that the success of the season depended on individual

Recreation Association. Acti\e nienibcrship comes with partii ipaiion in the 
\arioiis activities. 

The WRA not onK promotes greater interest and wider participation in

acti\ities every girl has an opportunity to have fun through participation and 
fellowship, to exhibit good sportsmanship, and to gain an understanding of 
her colleagues. 

Participation in WRA is a memorable experience. Under the direction of 
Coach Virginia Hart and Miss Allene Tyler, the organization has provided

a beginning wandering into infinity 

an ending accompanying the beginning 

a hope for enrichment of all facets of life 

a crude awakening to things never dreamed of 

to foil "an ignominious self-defeat" 

into new phase — one of mediocrity 

what to do? 

not OS low OS in the post 

yet still so for from that omnipresent future 

a haunting desire to end it all 

an overwhelming wish to stick it out 

proudness in defeat and in victory 

the decision of a lifetime 

the beginning of the end 

an ascent of the mountain of idealism 

a descent to the valley of realism 

it's not as long as it has been 

nevertheless; a cloud of inquisitiveness still prevails 

a culmination of failures, sorrows, efforts 

accomplishments and joys into a pinnacle of fear 

the future: for so long over the next obstacle 

waits incognito around the corner 

a speedy recovery of all that has been accumulated 

formation of a patchwork quilt of memories 

forever to be a port of our future and our present 

we salute thee alma mater

who's who '67 



"Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges 
and Universities" is a bound volume of biographical 
sketches on outstanding student leaders at colleges 
and universities throughout the nation. This year 
twenty-three Mars Hill seniors were chosen for this 
honor. 

Those selected were nominated by a faculty com- 
mittee and submitted to the editors of the publication. 
The candidates were chosen on the basis of campus 
leadership, academic standing, and promise of future 
usefulness. 

To have attained this honor is an accomplishment 
of which both the student body and the indiviiluals 
can be proud. The 1967 Laurel salutes the following 
persons for their achievements:

editor's farewell 

The closing of a year — this year — is a sobering 
experience. For some of us at Mars Hill it is not only 
the close of a year, but the close of our college career. 
For all, the year's memories are very precious. The 
1967 laurel is our means to these memories. It is our 
way to capture the moments we ha\e shared together 
this year. To the outsider our laurel might have little 
significance — seeming to consist of countless pictures of 
hundreds of faces — meaningless to them, but everything 
to us. One picture can bring to us a flood of memories 
that recall the entire year's activities. 

The 1967 laurel is a new approach — just a beginning 
for a college that needs to establish new ideas to meet 
a new era. It is my sincerest hope that future students, 
future editors will shape their laurel into a book of 
which we all can be proud — a book which holds our 
most treasured memories.
