1300 Expected 
To Register 
Says Futcher 

Almost 1,400 students have 
been accepted for next year, re- 
ports Dr. Cyril F. W. Futcher, 

director of admissions. Of these, 
about 1,300 are expected to reg- 
ister September 8 and 9. 

Application and acceptances 
are running about four percent 
higher than last year, adds Fut- 
cher. 

Eighteen countries, 44 states, 
and the District of Columbia 
are represented. Slightly over 
one-third of these students come 
from out of the Southern Union. 
Futcher added that Thatcher 
Hall is about filled up, and that 
if former students want to be 
assured of a room, they should 
f get their deposits in soon.

Over 40 SMC 
Students Attend 

By Lynda Hughes 

With unity of purpose but 
diversity of languages, more 
tli.m 12.000 young people, in- 
cluding approximately 40 SMC 
students, attended the World 
Youth Congress in Zurich, 
Switzerland. 

For five days. July 22 thifnt^li 
July 26, Zurich was treated to 
a rainbow of costumes— plaid 
scotch kilts, red and gold-colored 
clothes from Latin countries, the 
flowing robes of African dele- 
gates, and the delicate finery of 
the Far East.

Congress theme "Follow Me." 
Large choirs led the delegates m 
singing the theme song— "Hear 
the Lord command. Follow Me. 
Youth of every land. Follow Me. 
Every volunteer from far and 
near. Follow Me. There's a liv- 
faith we will share. We will 
show the world that we care. 
Hear Ihe Saviour say, 'I'm the 
truth and way. Follow me.' " 
Delegations from each nation 
presented their flags Tuesday 
night in a colorful ceremony 
during the opening meeting. 
Those pre sen i uvi i welcomed 
by Elder Robert Pierson, Gen- 
eral Conference president, who 
told the assembled youth that

A massed youth choir was di-

projects into the future, he is 
wise to look backward into the 
past. Doing this with the Stu- 
dent Association of the past 
year on this campus leads one 
to deep contemplation concern- 
ing its worth. Judging by the

complained, and bickered, a per-

Quang Chau Thanks 
Sigma Delta Chi 
For 'Project Concern' 

"The people of Quang Chau vil- 
lage and all South Vietnam are 
very touched by your thought- 
ful' assistance," stated Marine 
Lt. Col. T. E. Bulger in a re- 
cent letter to Southern Mission- 
ary College's Sigma Theta Chi 
campus women's club in re- 
sponse to the club's "Protect 
Concern" initiated last Febru- 

"Project Concern" consisted 
of approximately 70 boxes, total- 
ing over HOD pounds of clothes, 
toys, trinkels, and soap. that 
were sent to the villagers as a 
result of a letter from Marine 
1st Lt. Wilbur Griffith, a 1966 
graduate of SMC. Griffith indi- 
cated in his letter the over- 
whelming poverty in some of 
the villages near which he was 
stationed. "Your castoffs," he 
wrote, "would be like luxuries 
to the Vietnamese." 

"Project Concern" was intro- 
duced to the women's club by 
Linda Wagner, second semester 
president of Sigma Theta Chi, 
MiKoe B.iking Co. donated the 



boxes for packing and postafM 
for shipment. 

Excerpts from Bulger' 
read: "Quang Chau is a

W. M. Schneider, SMC presi-

Summer School. A time in 
life — as well as a particular in- 
stitution — when those who have 
been doing return to school for 
a little more theory, and also a 
boost along toward that coveted 
degree by those who wish to 
speed up the process. 

Unfortunately, the proverbial 
human nature being what it is, 
neither of the above seem much 
satisfied with the process if die 
listening ear is to be credited. 
Fewer and fewer studenls seem 
to consider college and the edu- 
cation that it prefers as an assist 
toward the accomplishments 
they wish to reach. The concept 
is apparently that of an artificial 
series of challenges and obstacles 
which are gleefully tossed into 
the supposedly broad and easy 
path of progress by slyly grin- 
ning professors who pick a few 

pass into an educational limbo. 
Whether this is or is not true 
has nothing to do with the gen- 
eral student attitude toward the 
educational process. It might be 
well to bear in mind that the 



most outlandish alle«atie 
ally have their basis ii 
miniscule trace of truth. 

The intensive speed, not to . 
mention the pressure, of the 

either increase the number of 
complaints along this line or the 
intellectual honesty of the stu- 
dent; sometimes both at once. 
Interestingly enough, the stu- 
dent who happily betakes him- 
self off to summer school runs 
full tilt into the hardrock basis 
of the educational process. Edu- 
cation in and of itself is not 
meant to be entertaining. It can 
be fun, but it has no interest in 
trying to be. Summer schools 
are education with the intensity 
left in and most triviality out. 
This intensity would increase 
the value of the fall and spring 

gin. 

Since tins intensity would be 
much harder on the teachers 
than the students, very little 
faculty interest can be aroused 
in such a program. The result is 
a loss to the stuilenl in v.ihie and 



l.elievmglv embarrassing elec- 
tion blunder-, die t ircumstaiK es 
have reached deplorable depths. 
A student body wants to see 
more in the way of accomplish- 

than a few pieces of red wood. 
But in all this mess we have 
one really big consolation — man 
was created with his eyes in the 
an advantage in convenience. 
He learns less in more time. 

This opens up a wide vista 
for an education only lightly 
touched between basketball 
games and Saturday night dates. 
And this misses the whole point. 
And what, pray tell, is the 
point? 

Summer school, even more 
than the fall and spring terms 
at SMC, are meant to give tools 
to the ignorant — "making wise 
the simple," if you please— so 
that the constitutionally guar- 
anteed "pursuit of happiness 
can be continued with a little 
discernment and intelligent in- 
sight. 

How fast tin- happens seems 
to have slipped out of the pic-

Student Missionaries Describe Work 



Having all 
except the radio cut off because 
of a war, flying halfway around 
the world, or giving injections 
to little children all day — this is 
what is happening to SMG's stu- 
dent missionaries this summer. 

Doug Foley, SMC's mission- 
ary to Honduras, reports that in 
spite of the war between Hon- 
duras and El Salvador, work is 
going on. However, the war does 
hinder things somewhat. There 
is no communication between 
Bay Islands, where Doug is 
working, and the mainland as 
long as the fighting is going on. 
The only news that they hear 
must come over the radio. Says 
Doug, "We hear what's going 
on, and that's about it!" 

On the island, Doug is help- 
ing Elder William Boykin, but 
the war is hindering evangelistic 
efforts in Pandytown and Punta 
Gorda. At night, there is a 




Sigma Theto Chi 
Organizes Summer 
Activities for Girls 

Girls have ideas and good 
ones too. That is why the ladies 
of Thatcher Hall have a Sigma 
Theta Chi club for the first time 
this summer. 

There's action too! — and par- 
ticipation which proves that in- 
teresting things are planned. 

The first item of fun was a 
"treat" in the Purple People 
Treater, Collegedale's pink and 
purple polka dotted bus. It 
carried the girls to Baskin- 
Robbins ice cream parlor. The 



cost? "About 25 cents for dieters 
and more for those who don't 
care," said Jo Anna Mohr, 

Other events include a flat 
rate smorgasbord in the new 
dining hall, an afternoon of 
swimming and water siding 
followed by supper at Harrison 
Bay, and the film "Father Is a 
Bachelor." 

The officers are: Miss Mohr, 
president; Katrina Long, social 
vice president; Nita Daniels, 
religious vice president; Beverly 
Solomon, secretary; and Me- 
lanie Lyon, treasurer. 

Perhaps, since the idea seems 
successful, it will become a tra- 
dition in future s

Roatan, the island on which 
Doug is staying, is a typical 
Caribbean island, with sandy 
beaches, palm trees and crystal- 
clear water. But, adds Doug, the 
weather is so hot that he must 
take a siesta everyday, or col- 
lapse from over-exertion. The 
only transportation on the 
island, other than walking is by 
boat, though there is one road on 
the island. In fact, some of the 
coastal villages are built over the 
water on stilts. 

Doug spends his time helping

Three SMC Professors 
Listed in WHO'S WHO 

Three Southern Missionary 
College professors — Drs. Alma 
Chambers, K. M. Kennedy and 
LaVeta Payne — are listed in the 
new editions of "Who's Who in 
American Colleges and Univer- 
sity Administrators" (Kennedy) 
and "American Men of Science" 
(Chambers and Payne). 

Neither Dr. Chambers or Dr. 
Payne knew the other one had 
been chosen and contacted until 
it came out in print. 

Dr. Chambers received her 
doctorate degree in educational 
psychology from the University 
of Southern California in 1967. 
Her dissertation was entitled 
"The Physiological and Psycho- 
logical Measurements of Anxiety 
and Their Consequence on Men- 
tal Test Performance." She 
came to SMC in 1965 and is 
now serving as associate profes- 
sor of psychology. 

Dr. Payne is currently serv- 
ing as professor of education and 
psychology at SMC. She re- 
ceived her doctorate in second- 
ary education from the Univer- 
sity of Nebraska in 1952. Her 
dissertation was entitled "Col- 
lege Attendance of Graduates of 
101 Nebraska High Schools." 
■She has been at SMC since 1966. 

Dr. Kennedy was the director 
of a recent comprehensive study 





also sponsors their annual, con- 
ducts choir, and teaches a Sab- 
bath School class. 

He reports that the students 
there are great, and have "great 
class spirit" — 35 of his 40 tenth 
graders came for eight hours to 
paint and fix the classroom, and 
not a one did any griping. 

Linda Lane and Brenda Hall 
are working at the Polyclinique 

and report made by the Teacher 
Education Council, in which 
SMC administrative officers and 
faculty cooperated in order to 
receive accreditation to prepare 
elementary teachers at the bach- 
elor's degree level. 

(The accreditation was 
granted and made retroactive to 
Sept., 1967). Dr. Kennedy re- 
ceived his Ph.D. degree in Edu- 
cation from the University of 
Tennessee at Knoxville in 1955. 
He is in his 18th year at South- 
ern Missionary College.

SA Sponsors 
Camping Trip 
To Smokies 

SMC's SA 'possum is not dead 
— it has just gone camping! Stu- 
dents staying on campus for the 
summer were treated to a camp- 
out in the Smokies July 18-20. 
Camping out in the Cherokee 
National Forest near Tellico 
Plains, the two dozen campers 
went swimming, hiked, ate and 
relaxed for a weekend in the 
woods. 

Talks by Dr. Knittel inspired 
the campers both Friday night 
and Sabbath morning. The 
group also enjoyed food and 
games a la Hanson. 

Nature was close to the camp- 
ers, with crickets, bull frogs and 
a nearby stream providing the 
accompaniment for singing 
choruses. A hike Sabbath after- 



into a fascinating new depart- 
ment for WSMC. The new de- 
partment, Production Services, 
was begun in a limited way 3 
years ago by Curtis Carlson, a 
WSMC staff member, and be- 
came official in June this year. 

The basic purposes of Produc- 
tion Services are to provide a 
place for ministers and other in- 
terested persons to obtain pro- 
fessional recording facilities and 
to provide inspirational material 
for small churches, and isolated 
or interested members. Aside 
from these, additional benefits 
will be the training of communi- 
cations students and added in- 
come which will help WSMC 
become more self-supporting. 

The two main aspects of this 
program are to make tape re- 
corded sound tracks for various 
conference programs and to du- 
plicate tapes for lay members 
and interested persons. 

Already several f i lm s t r i p 
sound tracks have been pro- 
duced, such as "That Certain 
Sound," a production for the 
Southern Union, and "The 
Dawn of a New Day," for the 
Religious Liberty Department 
of the General Conference. A 



mountain laurel and rhododen- 
dron, tired feet notwithstanding. 
Those who were fortunate 
enough to be able to break away 
from the hectic schedule of sum- 
mer school and work can well 
testify to the fact that what was 
once known as a dead SA has 
begun to be resurrected. 



recently completed sound track 
for the Southern Union is the 
Mission Spotlight on Viet Nam, 
a series for the Sabbath School. 
Also in the planning is the 
North American Division's 
multi-media presentation for 
next General Conference ses- 

More than 60 tapes are now 
available for duplication by the 
Production Services. A catalog 
listing available tapes has been 
sent out. Included are entire 
ries such as Georgia-Cumber- 
land camp meeting and the Zur- 
ich Report. John W. Robinson. 
director of Production Services, 
says that these tapes will be on 
high quality tapes and are very 
low in cost. They are hoping in 
the near future to provide ma- 
terial on the new cassette cart- 
Robinson is not only the di- 
rector of Production Services, 
but he is also the Evangelistic 
Coordinator for WSMC. This 
new office was formed with the 
hope that it will make WSMC 
more evangelistic in function 
and further the Lord's work in 
this area. 

Personal contact will be 
stressed, featuring personal let- 
ters to interested listeners, and 
personal visits with a Christ- 
centered approach. There are 
also things being planned for 
listeners who give no outward 
response to the station.

SOUTHERN MISSIONARY 



COLLEGEDALE, TENN. 



SA Lounge Opens; Mrs. Fleming Honored 



State of the SA: 



Futcher and Smith Request 
Total Participation This Year 



Student Association President 
Terence Futcher outlined to the 
student body his plans for the 
coming year in his State of the 
SA address during the SA as- 
sembly this morning. Colleen 
Smith, vice-president of the SA 
also spoke, opening the cam- 
paign for the SA Senate. 

In his speech, Futcher told 
the students "the state of the 
SA cannot be restored to its old 
image unless every member of 
the SA participates." He blamed 
the constituents of former stu- 
dent administrations for the 
lack of success in the earlier 
student governments. "Our or- 
ganization cannot function prop- 
erly without the massed support 
of its members," Futcher told 
the audience. 

Futcher said that his over-all 
objective this year is to bring 
the whole school family into 
harmony, creating an insepar- 
able union. "Without this un- 
ion, our Student Association will 
never move ahead and SMC it- 
self will be greatly hindered." 

SA programs this year will 
include the normal round of 
SA activities, noted Futcher. 
Among new programs planned 
is the long-planned Tivoli bene- 
fit. Futcher would also like to

to run for the seats in the Sen- 
ate," she stated. 

In speaking of her plans for 
this year's Senate, Miss Smith 
defined the Senate as being a 
group of students: 

1. who are interested enouph 
in the school and fellow students 
to represent them in a student 
government. 

2. who are willing to take the 
n^liuii-ibllily of keeping them- 
selves informed of the wishes 
and opinions of their constitu- 




The new student lounge was

ings, but also on the campus in

4. who are not afraid to pre-

and who will listen to the ideas 
of others. 

5. whose loyalty to the school 
will make them feel responsible 
for upholding the principles and 
ideals of SMC. 



Fall Enrollment Reaches 
New Record of 7,300 



Miss Smith i 
speech that filing week for the 
Senate positions would he Sep- 
tember 22-26. The election will 
[follow on October 2 and 3. She 
asked each student present to 
' either run for a position, or vote 
the coming election. 




A new enrollment record was 
set for Southern Missionary 
College as the 1300th student 
began registration procedures 
late Tuesday afternoon. 

SMC's beginning enrollment 
of 1308 surpasses last year's by 
60, according to Dr. C. F. W. 
Futcher, director of admissions 
and records, a 4.4 perrent gain 
over last year's opening figure. 

Although registration didn't 
begin until 8:00 a.m., 200 stu- 
dents were already waiting in 
line at 5: 30 a.m. Monday morn- 
ing. "This is usual," said 
Futcher, "however, we regis- 
tered 1242 students the first day 
this year compared with ap- 
proximately 800 by the end of 
the first day last year." 

"Part of the reason for this 
increase," Futcher continued, 
"is the breakdown of station 1 
of the procedure into four lines 



by a number system. The lines 
have previously been divided 
A-L, M-Z. This year they were 
also subdivided into odd and 
even numbers." 

Some students suggested, 
however, that if the number 
system is to be completely suc- 
cessful, it will have to be en- 
forced. "Organized priority

Twenty percent of the new 
student body have registered for 
four or two-year nursing majors,

We're Not Perfect, But Almost 

sir, as I have said, a small college — and yet there are 
those who love it . . ." 

If Daniel Webster was speaking of SMC, he no doubt spoke 
a truism. Unfortunately, however, Mr. Webster never lived to 
see our school in Happy Valley. Yet, we can thank him for 
recognizing the virtue of the small college. 

SMC is by most standards a small school. Perhaps many 
students choose to challenge this statement after standing for 
hours in those inexplicably long registration lines or sitting 
through their first lecture in the most uncomfortable and remote 
position available in the room: the last seat in the last row in a 
class with 110 students. If rulief can be found in looking at the 
misery of others, students at SMC who find the "masses" here 
incompatible with their idea of a small school might do well to 
look at the dilemma of the world's multi-university. 

The multi-university has been called a twentieth century 
phenomenon. This year over seven million students are expected 
to enroll in U.S. colleges. A majority of these will be enrolled 
in multi-universities: campuses reaching populations of 40 and 
5D thousand and beyond. If SMC's 1300 is too big, try your 
home state university. 

Certainly SMC is not the perfect school, but we returning 
students view it as the small school we have come to love. It is 
our hope that incoming freshmen and transfer students might 
soon forget the long registration lines and the temporarily 
cramped dormitory and classroom facilities and leam to love 
our small school of the South as we do. 

We welcome all to SMC for the 1969-70 school year and 
hope that before the end of this year we may all, like Webster, 
appreciate the virtues of a small school. 

Editorial Policy: 

The Southern Accent Casts Its Mold 

What land of newspaper will the SOUTHERN ACCENT be 
this year? To whom is it targeted and what are its aims and 
purposes? These questions must be answered now before we 
begin to fulfill our editorial duties. The mold we make now will 
be used to cast each subsequent ACCENT. 

The ACCENT is a publication that will present those at 
Southern Missionary College with information and discussion 
pertinent to our campus. Because the ACCENT is written by 
students as a part of their college training, and read by students 
at the college, it will naturally tend to present the student's view- 
point in a style designed to appeal to students. 

Those reading the ACCENT off campus are reading it be- 
cause they are interested in our school and students. With re- 
gard to them, we realize that at times we may not give a com- 
plete picture to them because of our campus-centered coverage. 
When misunderstandings arise, we hope that queries will be 
sent by readers for a clarification of these differences, and we 
will hasten to answer all questions. 

We feel that an independent newspaper can more objectively 
present the news to the school members. For this reason, we 
will endeavor to pursue an independent course away from other 
influences— difficult as that may be— realizing that the ACCENT 
remains the chief public relations organ of the college adminis- 
tration, and that we depend on the SA for operating funds. 

It is our opinion that the best public relations that can be 
had for the college administration or Student Association can be 
had only through effective performances — performances that can 
then be best reported through an independent ACCENT — an AC- 
CENT that reports a better SA image and a smaller gap between 
the students and college adn "

down inside me there is a little

That seems to be the general

to fight our way out, but cheat. 
One of the dullest and most

New Students

how I would possibly squeeze 
into one freshman brain all I he

While recuperating from this 
day, I couldn't help but recall 
my first few days of college

onto campus, meeting several 
friendly students and hoping 
that I wouldn't have to spend 
my year residing in the recrea-

Tiredly I wondered, "Is college

Confusedly. I popped the end

Faculty Meet 
For Colloquium 

Faculty of Southern Mission- 
ary College gathered for a col- 
loquium two days prior _ to 
Freshman Orientation setting 
plans for the coming school 
year. 

Dr. Charles Hirsch, educa- 
tional secretary of the General 
Conference of Seventh-day Ad- . 
ventists, was the featured 
speaker at the colloquium. 
Hirsch spoke on "Current Prob- 
lems in Seventh-day Adventist 
Education." 

SMC's president, Dr. Wilbert 
M. Schneider, presented admin- 
istrative procedures and infor- 

The school calendar for the 
coming year. Graduate Record 
Examinations, grading practices, 
and ungraded classes were dis- 
cussed by Dr. Frank Knittel, 
academic dean at SMC. 

Delmar Lovejoy, dean of stu- 
dent affairs, discussed the Stu- 
dent Handbook, school stand- 
ards, faculty responsibilities. 
school working policy, student 
rights and campus disturbances.

Lovejoy reports that the cam- 
pus force will operate independ- 
ently from the newly-formed 
City of Collegedale Police De- 
partment except in such cases 
where arrests must be made and 
prosecution carried out by 
county authorities. 

"The basic responsibilities of 
the campus force," says Love- 
joy, "are: (1) transport women 
of Thatcher Hall to and from 
their work appointments at 
McKee Bakery during the eve- 
ning hours; (2) check all cam- 
pus buildings at night to see that 
doors are locked, lights are 
turned out, and windows are 
shut; (3) see that the college's 
policy of no socializing on the 
grounds after evening worship 
is enforced (the siudent associa- 
tion lounge will again be open 
in the evenings for social activ- 
ity); (4) conduct periodic daily 
fire insurance checks of all 
buildings." 

Lovejoy adds that the new 
force will carry no weapons and 
that it will be headed by Clifford

Ta/ge Wafer Problem Solved 




A new channel of i 
cation between the administra- 
tion and students was opened 
this week. A press conference, 
under the direction of William 
H. Taylor, director of college 
relations, was held Tuesday 
afternoon. 

Topics discussed at the first 
conference included a run-down 
of coming events for October, 
a statement by Dr. W. M. 
Schneider on the coming board 
meeting, and a short question 
and answer period. 

The purpose of these confer- 
ences, according to Taylor, is to 
publicize new- happenings mi 
campus. Every administrator, 
student leader, or press secre- 
tary has been invited to use 
these conferences to keep others 
informed of the coming activi- 
ties. Questions about the oper- 
ation of the college will also be 
answered, added Taylor. 

The press conferences will be 
attended primarily by those 
interested in campus activities. 
These will include representa- 
tives from the campus publica- 
tions, publicity secretaries and 
spokesmen for the various cam- 
pus organizations, and college 
officials. However, anyone who 
wants to attend is welcome to 
come and ask questions. 

The eleven dates scheduled 
parallel the Southern Ac- 
cent's deadline schedule, so 
that the Accent, along with the 
other public media served by 
Taylor's office, can benefit 
from the conferences, noted Bill 
Cash, editor of the campus 
newspaper. "We hope that these 
conferences will help us in our 
planning of future issues," 
added Cash. 




W5MC Offers Hefferlin's

as the nation grabbed the headlines h 



spring 
pted on college and 
ere at Roosevelt University in 
Washington, D.C.. Los Angeles 
Francisco State, and on many other campuses, 
juntry, people debated whether militants had 
the right to prevent other students from enjoying their rights to 
education, and many answers were proposed to quell the student 
outbursts. 

Reasons lor the demonstrations were varied— (rom childish 
campus policies to outmoded education. Students complained 
about the large, impersonal universities, poor communication 
between administration and students, and the Vietnam war and 
the draft. 

The reactions to the demonstrations were varied, also. Tear 
gas and troops were needed at some campuses to stop the riot- 
ing. Others, such as Notre Dame's President Hesbaugh and Cali- 
fornia's Reagan proposed immediate expulsion and other hard- 
nosed anti-revolutionary policies. 

Thus far, no demonstrations or riots have taken place on the 
campus of Southern Missionary College— a fact of which we all 
can be proud. Even so, students have been warned that there 
had better be no such demonstrations on campus this year. 

The SOUTHERN ACCENT regrets that such a warning had 
to be given. As one student leader put it, "Telling the students 
not to riot is like telling the crew of a ship not to mutiny- Why 
put the idea in their heads?" 

As we notice the issues causing riots at other schools, we 
see very few issues that SMC students can complain about. We 
can't cry about the largeness ol our campus and the impersonal- 
ity of it. Our administration is doing all they can to close the 
communication gap, with both Intercom and press conferences 
allowing the students to directly voice their opinions to the ad- 
ministration. 

Other universities have worked to alleviate demonstrations 
by allowing students to participate in administrative committees 
— a privilege we already enjoy. The school has already proved 
that they will do their best to improve conditions — the building 
program testifies to that. Campus policies are continually being 
up-dated, and students are given the chance to help revise the 
handbook. 

TIME magazine (April 11, 1969) concluded its study on riots 
by saying that demonstrations will continue until a moderate 
majority respecting the institution is mobilized, and a coalition 
is organized to discuss the problems of students. 

So long as the students and administration at SMC 
meeting these conditions, demonstrations or riots will ne~

out that the grounds on which 
some films are being rejected are 
very ill-considered. For instance, 
there is not a young person in 
attendance at this institution 
who is not well aware of the fact 
that when an army sergeant 
groups his squad to charge a hill, 
he does not say "Well, come on, 
boys, let's go get 'em!" Not 
hardly, he doesn't! His vocabu- 
lary fits the occasion — a mo- 
ment when men are about to 
lose their lives. 

Protection by censorship is a 
fine idea, when not carried to 
excess. And to those on the 
other side of the controversy 
and who carry the responsibility 
of making the decisions in- 
volved, I say, "You have my 
sincerest sympathy." 

But with my sympathy, you 
will also get my critical evalua-

Now, how about some films that

Emilio Knechtle 



Note: On September 19, 20, 
\ a nd 21, Emilio B. Knechtle, a 
owned Adventist layman 
and businessman, was on cam- 
o speak during SMC's an- 
nual Missionary Volunteer 
Weekend. Relating his experi- 
ences as a Swiss immigrant, his 
success in American business 
and social circles, and his con- 
version to Christianity, Knechtle 
brought a message which 
seemed to inspire most SMC 
students to seek a stronger re- 
lationship with Christ and a 
greater role in Christian wit- 
nessing. Now serving as director 
of a private day school for boys 
in New Canaan, Connecticut. 
Knechtle was formerly board 
chairman of a large New York 
pharmaceutical company and a 
prominent layman in New York 
religious circles. He was once 
chairman of the Protestant 
Council of New York City. He 
helped raise a million dollars for 
the Billy Graham Crusade in 
New York and was elected co- 
chairman of the World's Fair 
Religious Committee. 

After his visit to the 'Gate,' 
a Chattanooga coffeehouse-type 
ri'iingeHstic center operated by 
several SMC students as a 
means of Christian witnessing 
with college-age young people. 
Knechtle was interviewed by 
Accent managing editor. Mike 
Foxworth. 

Accent: During the weekend 
you have said much about how 
you witness for your faith with- 
in the professional society and 
you have spoken to college slu- 
I dents, most of whom will be 
I entering professional fields. 
What is your advice to these 
, students to help them witness to 
I their peers later in life? 
I Knechtle: I would like to see 
I many of today's college students 
I in Adventist schools, if they 
I plan to enter education, enter 
I public schools and secular uni- 
I versifies and become very in- 
Ivolved in the academic life of 
I these schools and universities. 
I Then, once inside these institu- 
Itions, I should like to see them 
I witness by their lives and their 
I testimony to the power of 




•ho believe in 
God, His law, and in the Bible, 
so that they can help young peo- 
ple find a purpose in life. They 
apparently have no purpose 
now, therefore they are bent on 
destroying the institution and 
rebelling against -ill authority. 
It begins right with the faculty 
anil administration and for this 
reason I would like to see our 
teachers take positions at Har- 
vard. Yale, Princeton, and other 
schooh and exert a deep influ- 
ence for Christ. 



wants to preach, win souls, and 
fill responsible jobs in the local 
church so that the pastor mov 
do his job better. Every pastor 
in our denomination is over 
worked, so much so that he 
doesn't have time with Christ. 
No wonder many of our ser- 
mons fall flat. The ministers 
don't feed the people because 
they themselves don't have time. 
In order to change this, in order 
to get this time lo be with Christ, 
the minister needs to delegate 
responsibility to laymen. 

to one who is totally unreceptive 
to the Gospel? 

Knechtle: Many people have 
turned me off when I have tried 



'to witness to them. In my wit- 
nessing I've made an agreement 
with the Holy Spirit. First, I 
test to see if the Holy Spirit has 
prepared this person for me to 
speak with him by asking the 
individual if he is interested in 
spiritual things. If they show 
a total lack of interest, I don't 
go on any further. If they show 
no interest in wanting to know 
Christ personally, I also stop. If 

either of these points, I inquire 
of other Christians to see if and 
how they have witnessed to him. 
Prayer is the basis of witness- 
ing. We should pray that the 



Holy Spirit go

Gospel. It's giving everyone of 
you a wonderful opportunity to 
tell the beautiful love story of 
Christ. 

Our young people need to be- 
come involved in life as you are 
doing at the 'Gate.' It may cost 
you everything. But we must 
pay a price, because to live is to 
love, to love demands sacrifice, 
and sacrifice brings suffering. 
It's that chain reaction. That's 
what the gospel is all about. The 
Christian must learn to suffer 
for the sake of his fellowman. 
to take on his problems and 
identify himself with these 
problems and give himself for

Knechtle: If there is a gap of 
this type in our schools, it's dif- 
ferent from that on secular 
campuses. There, it is a lack of 
God, while in our schools I sus- 
pect that we have not given the 
students sufficient freedom. We 
have fenced them in too much 
so that the world, the outside, 
has become so attractive to them 
that they have discarded their 
faith and all restrictions and re- 
belled agamst the church. We

Therefore, we need men who

taking the beating that they will 
take, but bringing Christ back

courage our young people to be- 
come involved in social clubs 
and become involved in the so- 
cial life, be outstanding in their

Knechtle: Today's campuses 
need faculty members and ad- 



them as individuals, trust them, 
have faith in them, and not 
panic if one does transgress. 

I hope that many of our col- 
lege students who plan to teach 
will also go into our schools and 
improve the atmosphere and 
bring about a situation which 
will let the love of Christ per- 
meate the whole school. 

Accent: In observing student 
reaction to your messages of the 
weekend, many have said that 
you have communicated with 
the students. Do you feel that 
other laymen, businessmen or 
professionals like yourself, 
would do more in speaking wilh 
and helping young people in the 
church with their problems and 
needs? 

Knechtle: Absolutely! But we 
have not given the laymen in 
our denomination sufficient re- 
sponsibilities. We are a minis- 
ter- or pastor-oriented church. 
Other denominations — Protes- 
tant, Catholic— are giving much 
more responsibility to the lay- 
men. Our laymen should be in 
the administration of the church 
doing such work as required of 
business managers. They 
shouldn't be ordained pastors 
An ordained pastor belongs he-

There is a tremendous army

Only our officers have been

these forces and not keep them 
at arms length. The layman 



Preceptor (Dean of Men) 
Hall led me up the stairs and 
down the corridor to my room. 
After two days of travel. I had 
finally arrived at Newbold Col- 
lege, in Bracknel, England. 
Opening the door, I saw clothes, 
hooks, bedding, papers, maga- 
zines, animal skins . . . every- 
thing piled and strewn. 

Pastor Hall had warned me 
that my roommate felt sick and 
had left in "a bit of a hurry," 
hut I hadn't expected a disaster 
area! For two pence (2d), I 
would have boarded the next 
flight to SMC. 

Now, one year later, I have 
returned to Collegedale along 
with Bill Boyle, Elton Kerr, 
Donna Taylor, and Clarice Wil- 
kinson, who also attended New- 
bold last year. Ellen Esberner 
and Carol Smart have also re- 
turned after spending a year 
at Collonges in eastern France 
near Geneva, Switzerland. 

We seven, although happy to 
be back at Collegedale. are still 
very enthusiastic about spend- 
ing a year abroad. 

Those of us who went to New- 
bold are quick to tell of the mon- 
ey saved by going abroad — tu- 
ition, room, board, and laundry 
cost only $625 for a whole year. 
In addition, one-way flights a- 
cross the Atlantic can be ar- 
ranged through charter night 
companies for under $100. 

Going abroad was certainly 
not a year off from studies, as 
we at Newbold and Collonges 
quickly discovered last fall. Al- 
, hough Newbold is basically set. 
upon the American college plan. 
of the teachers are English 



By David Patterson 
and therefore emphasize the 
British concept of classroom and 
study activities. 

Essays and research papers 
constitute much of the upper 
division classwork. Instead of 
being true or false, multiple 
choice and matching, tests are 
almost exclusively essay-type, 
with most of the student's grade 
depending upon Ihe final exam- 

With only an elementary 
knowledge of the French lan- 
guage, the Americans at Col- 
longes were expected to attend 
and pass college level courses, 
attend worships, go to meals 
and. in general, conduct a some- 
what standard college program. 
Success didn

Not only did we find differ- 
ences in classroom activities, 
but also in certain rules and 
regulations. For example, at 
Newbold there are no room 
checks, no penalties for worship 
absence, no haircut or beard 
regulations, and more relaxed 
social regulations. Yet there 
was no noticeable depopulation 
of the dorms at night, worship 
was well-attended, students 
were well-groomed, and few so- 
cial problems existed.

On weekends we went to 
such places as Stratford-on- 
Avon (Shakespeare's home- 
town), Oxford, Cambridge, Sal-

of Bath. During vacations we 
went to more distant places like 
Ireland, Wales, the Lake Dis-

ary masterpieces were in- 
spired), Cornwall (traditional 
location of King Arthur's cas-

that I had put raw eggs in it for

Not only had the eggs broken, 
but a can of treacle (English

We SMC students who spent 
last year abroad lived, and 
worked with people of many 
varied ways of life. Not only 
did we gain new insights into

spects, we saw ourselves more 
as we really are.

One of Southern Missionary 
College's students is one of the 
top experts on the Swiss immi- 
gration to Tennessee's Grundy 
County— and he became expert 
by accident. 

David Clayton, a junior reli- 
gion major, is minoring in his- 
tory. Last year, he took history 
of "the south from Dr. Watrous. 
One of Watrous' requirements 
for the class was a term paper 
on some aspect of southern his- 
tory. Clayton chose to write 
about Grundy County — his 
home county — , located about 
70 miles northwest of Chatta- 
nooga. 

When Clayton went to re- 
search his subject, he found that 
nobody knew anything about 
Grundy's history. "Because of 
this, "Clayton said, "I had to 
change my topic. But I deter- 
mined to find out something 
about Grundy County." 

This summer, he drove to 
Gruetli, a town in Grundy 
county, and began interviewing 
the older residents, recording the 
visits with a tape recorder and 

The mountaineers showed 
confidence in Clayton and 
showed him maps and papers- 
that had been withheld from 
other researchers. Among the 
documents that Clayton now 
has in his possession is a pass- 
port of Peter Schild, head of one 
of the first families to immigrate 
from Switzerland, and the fa- 



By The Staff 
ther of Miss Schild, whom Clay- 
ton interviewed. 

Many of the residents of 
Grundy County are descendants 
of Swiss families that immigrat- 
ed to the United States in the 
last century. As part of his re- 
search, Clayton traced the route 
that the Swiss settlers took when 
they came to Gruetli. 

The first arrivals, as far as 
Clavton can find out, arrived in 
April 1869, and the entire 100- 
family group had arrived, and 
was organized in September, 
1869 — 100 years ago this 
month. 

The centennial was celebrat- 
ed September 27 with programs 
held in Cumberland Heights, 
about three miles from the origi- 
nal settlement. Clayton was 
asked to speak and display 
maps, papers and documents 
that he had made and found 
while researching the history of 
Grundy County. 

Clayton's research is not fin- 
ished yet. Late in the summer, 



he traveled to Washingtoi 
C, where he visited the SwisJ 
embassy and asked for informal 
lion. Dr. Lukas F. Burckhardtf 
secretary' of the Swiss-American] 
Historical Society. gave^Claytc 
more documents and informa] 
tion. The embassy then 
Clayton to further his res 
of the Swiss in Gruetli, Tenn. 

Clayton reports that he en joy J 
his research. "If I didn't do any| 
more than meet the people, 
would have been worthwhile, 
because it has helped me i

pie, and has widened my ■

"One to One" evangelism was

Conference still went on, es-

times a day, time was set aside 
for delegates to gather into little 
bands to sing and pray. 

The prayer band that will be 
best remembered by SMC dele- 
gates was the one held after the 
last meeting — after Elder Nel- 
son had given his charge to the 
delegates, and as students were 
preparing to leave. For one more 
time, Oakwood and SMC stu- 
dents prayed together, and sang 
as they separated "This is our 
day, the harvest of souls is wait- 
ing. This is our day, the morn- 
ing light is breaking. The chal- 
lenge is an old one, but the goal 
we have set is a new one. We 
are young, but we are bold ones, 
and the God we serve is a true 
one. And we will have victory, 
if we pray, in this our day." ( 

Discussion Groups 
Planned by MV 

Open discussion groups spon- 
sored by the MV Society will 
begin tomorrow evening at 7 
p.m. in Conference Room A in 
Wright Hall. All those inter- 
ested are invited to attend this 
pilot meeting, says Donna Tay-

MV. 

Topics discussed will be 
chosen by the interest generated 
in each subject. One subject 
will be presented each week, 
The tools of the discussion will 
be facts found from reference 
personal opinions. 

Miss Taylor also announced 
that Student Prayer Meeting

^ _ 'orizing long lists of bones for anatomy class, reviewing biographi- 
cal sketches of umpteen presidents, or practicing to amend lor 
lagging shorthand and typing speeds. 

No! College isn't going to be disbanded and teachers aren't 
going to quit giving tests! What then, is going to happen? 

The ACCENT applauds the recent a 
Trustees which will introduce new semest 
dates lor the 1970-71 school year. First sei 
Sept. 1 and end about Dec. 22. Second : 
Ian. 1 and end approximately May 10. 

Completing first semester before Christmas vacation will 
avoid what teachers term "The Lame Duck Period"— the time 
between Christmas vacation and semester examinations (Jan. 
5-15 this year). 

Students haven't been too fond of these two weeks in the 
past either, accusing teachers of making them the "Cram-the- 
Last-Hali-oMhe-Book-into-Two-Weeks" period. 

No time for Christmas shopping? That is bad, but at least

Jorzy' Helps WSMC 



By Gary 

Bob Korzyniowski, 26, has 

developed a mechanical disc 

jockey for WSMC-FM. Started 

as a joke, the idea for a remote 

reality. 

Korzy, a name given the re- 
mote control device by one of 
Korzyniowski's associates, co- 
ordinates the operations of six 
tape recorders and gives WSMC 
at least six hours of mechanical 
programming. Officially known 
as a program sequencer, Korzy 






Garner 

hood. As a small boy, he be- 
came interested in building 
radios ,ind fixing equipment. 
This hobby was developed as he 
received eight months training 
in electronics while serving in 
the Air Force. Later, three 
months of highly specialized 
training was given to him by 
the Chrysler Corp. at Chrysler's 
Space Division in New Orleans, 
Louisiana, where he worked 
developing Apollo boosters. 

Korzyniowski, a sophomore 
i elision major, is also an avid 
promoter of the Gate, a place 
where the young ge 1 1 era imn 



SOUTHERN ACCENT 

finds solutions to personal proh- 
lems and discusses possible solu- 
tions to the problems of the 
world. ■ The Gate is operated by 
the Collegedale MV Society and 
is located in Chattanooga. 

Korzyniowski went to the 
Gate several times and became 
interested in the opportunilies 
for sharing his faith. Now a 
member of the Gate Planning 
Committee, he continues to 
show others the happiness that 
i those who follow God's 



of S.MC's acadenm

lead 



ng. 



"It strengthens your faith in 
God and gives you a chance to 
tell others what you believe in," 
relates Korzyniowski. "If you 
can't give a good reason for 
what you believe, don't come to 
the Gate." He feels that there 
should be a Gate in every city. 



Korzy was in the planning 
stage for a month and took 
about three weeks to build. Due 
to a delay in receiving parts, 
however, actual operation will 
not begin until January 1, 1970. 

The total cost of building the 
control will be S500 including 
labor. The commercial equiva- 
lent would have cost about 
| 53,000. 

The idea for Korzy came 
while Korzj'niowski was work- 
ing on another project, center- 
ing around telephone evange- 
lism. A computer will be 
programmed to call people on 
the telephone and give them a 
religious message. It will then 
sign them up for a Bible cor- 
respondence course and record 
any comments they have. 

Korzyniowski's interest in 
xonics stems from his child-

Elder John J. Robertson, 
Glendale, Calif,, is conducting 
Southern Missionary College's 
Week of Spiritual Emphasis. 
His theme is "Let's Face It." 

In his morning sp-^on- Elcier 
Robertson faces problems of the 
everyday world as they relate 
to young people. He discusses 
the issues that divide American 
society and the philosophies that 
underlie these differences. 

In his opening talk. Eldpr 
Robertson conceded that the 
world is in a chaotic state and 
young people have a right to be 
dis.siti'ified. "Young people de- 
cry it as phony, and it is phony. 
The church does not live in a 
vacuum and is susceptible to 
modern emphases on revolu- 

"I believe the church will 
succeed only as its young people 
are willing to help," he said.

trich and hide our heads from 
today's issues. To relate the is- 
sues to the world is not to twist 
them, but relate to them. I hope 
we shall be able to make the 
discrimination clear between 
truth and the world." 

Elder Robertson received his 
bachelor of theology degree 




"Let's Face It," says Elder Robert- 
son, as he begins the Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis, 

from Walla Walla College, Col- 
lege Place, Wash., in 1941, his 
degree from An- 



Uni\ 



rsity, 



Springs. Mich., in 1946, and his 
bachelor of divinity from An- 
drews in 1965. At the present 
time, he is working on the doc- 
torate at the University of 
Southern California, Los An- 
geles. 

Presently he is pastor of the 
Vallejo Drive Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist Church in Glandule wilh

Eleventh Year of 
Record-Breaking 

Southern Missionary College 
and Collegedale Academy shat- 
tered all of their previous rec- 
ords for Missions Promotion 
Day, October 14, with a grand 
total of $16,000, surpassing last 
year's total by about §500. 

This marks the eleventh con- 
secutive year students and staff 
of SMC and CA have exceeded 
previous years' totals. The rec- 
ords for the past ten years are 
as follows: 
1958— $4,900 1963— S10.080 

1959— 5,025 1964— 11,685 

1960— 5,140 1965— 13,044 

1961— 5,800 1966— 13,515 

1962— 7,120 1967— 14,754 
1968—515,576 

Missions Promotion Day is an 
annual occasion in which the 
college and academy students 
and faculty take leave from 
classes and normal campus 
routine to participate in a pro- 
gram sponsored by the Sev- 
enth-day Adventist Church for 
l he purpose of raising funds for 
health, educational, and disaster 
relief-welfare assistance for the 
world's needy and impoverished 
people. A portion of the funds 
raised last year went to assist 
those involved in the disaster 
caused by hurricane Camille in 
southern Mississippi and Ala- 
bama this past summer. 

This year, approximately 500 
students and faculty members 
covered an area of about 200- 




Senate Votes to Raise $7,000 



The Student Association has 
begun operation this year, with 
Senate meetings and Cabinet 
meetings producing several new 
ideas and programs. The Sen- 
ate voted approval of the SA's 
drive to pay for the lounge, laid 
standing rules for its own mem- 
bers, and okayed the Cabinet's 
plan for a special program to be 
played over the cafeteria inter- 
com. The Cabinet recently set 
up guidelines for student be- 
haviour in the new lounge. 

The Senate granted the of- 



ficial gn-ahead on plans to raise 
$7.1)00 this year to pay for the 
student lounge. The newly- 
elected senators voiced their 
confidence in SA President 
Futcher's plan during their first 
meeting. "Our goal," explained 
Futcher," is to pay the full debt 
of the student lounge in one 
year!" 

The senators discussed meth- 
ods of fund raising and ap- 
pointed a committee to draw up 
plans. The tentative plan, ac- 
cording to Futcher, is to divide 



Seniors Organize 




the campus according to the 
senatorial precincts, with each 
senator a division leader. Each 
precinct would be rc>pf>n-iMe 
for its share of the goal, which 
would be determined by the 
number of students in it. 

Prizes are being offered as an 
incentive to help get the money 
raised, noted Futcher. Each 
student's share of the 57,000 
will amount to ?7. 

The Senate also approved of 
a plan made by the Cabinet to 
playing a taped program of mu- 
sic and campus news during the 
noon hour in the cafeteria. "The 
program will tentatively be 
aired on Tuesdays and Thurs- 
days to begin with," reports 
Colleen Smith, vice-president of 
the SA. A similar project is 
also being planned to help close 
the "village communications 
gap," adds Miss Smith. 

The Senate voted to suspend 
members who accumulated four 
absences during the year, or had 
three consecutive absences. 
Names of those present and 
those absent will be posted after 
each meeting in the Campus 
Accent. 

Guidelines for the studen' 
lounge were set by the SA Cab 
inet at the request of the admin- 
istration, after students 
plained about the lack of gov- 
erning policy in the lounge. 



mile radius of Chattanooga. 
Groups traveled as far as Knox- 
ville, Atlanta, Oak Ridge, and 
Gatlinburg. 

Cooperating with the Col- 
legedale Seventh-day Adventist 
Church, which set a personal 
goal of $21,000, the funds raised 
by the students' helped push the 
church over the top on its goal. 
With few exceptions, each 
group which went out came 
back with a larger sum than did 
the group which went to the 
same area last year. The At- 
lanta group, which consisted of 
around 80 students, came back 
with a total of $2,262, an all- 
Considerable success was en- 
joyed by the group of around 30 
students which solicited the 
Lookout Mountain territory. 
They also reached an all-time 
high of over $570 and they ac- 
complished this in only 2*4 

The group which went to 

Ga 1 1 i iiln irg. which incidently 
covered the longest route 
(around 400 miles), came back 
with $112. 

Students who could not par- 
ticipate in the Field Day be-

cause of work obligations on 
campus contributed a total of 
$950 from their wages. 

Charles Fleming, SMC's Gen- 
eral Manager, and Frank Cos- 
terisan, the college's superin 
tendent of plant maintenana 
and construction, together re 
ceived over $3,300 from Chat

for the generosity displayed by 
so many within the greater

Commentary 



Why Professional Clubs? 

It has been suggested by certain individuals on this campus 
that SMC would be a happier, healthier place ii professional 
clubs were done away with. These individuals claim thai club 
meetings are a waste of time, that activities of these clubs are 
either non-existent or worse, and that they receive no benefits 
or inspiration of any land from belonging to such an organization. 
One argument for the existence of professional clubs is that 
they can contribute to the morale of the individual and the school. 
On a campus with a student population of over 1300, it is rather 
difficult for major professors to become personally acquainted 
with al] the students majoring in their fields, and it is almost 
equally as difficult for a student to know everyone else who i 



y be the most important funclion 



: - difficult without professional 
clubs. 

Meeting as a group on a more or less informal basis, such 
as club meetings and other club activities provide, is basic in 
creating a feeling of cooperation and togetherness in any depart- 
ment. Such a feeling of "belonging" can do a great deal in en- 
couraging some individuals to remain in a particular 
study or even in college. This 
of professional clubs. 

Professional clubs can also play a vital role in keeping stu- 
dents informed about new ideas, discoveries, or advances in 
their held. Often we tend to become so wrapped up in our 
studies that we forget that there is a world outside where things 
are happening, things that are going to effect us in many ar 
of our lives including our work. A wide-awake club keeps up 
with these advances and thereby aids its members in deciding 
on what specifically they are going to do with their education. 

Many students have indicated that their personal plans for 
their future life work have been influenced by activities and as- 
sociations in professional clubs. We believe that anybody who 
has never derived any benefits from his club either has never 
attended or contributed any of his time or efforts to the club 
or else has a very narrow outlook on life that cannot be broad- 
ened by interpersonal relationships with others of similar inter- 

However, in closing, we do want to reiterate that clubs can 
do good only so long as the students participate in them, and 
helps them succeed. When a professional club does nothing to 
help its members, then it is better non-existent.

"Good morning Sabbath 
School Members . . ." Funny, 
you know, how things stick in 
the mind. Strange that little 
things come back to haunt me. 
... I can remember, back in 
years gone by, going to worship 
on a Sabbath morning when I 
actually had a songbook in my 
hands. I was young then and 
it really didn't much matter if 
I had music before me or not, 
but I seem to be rapidly aging 
and my memory is no longer 
sufficient to see me through the 

And as the fog lifts slightly 
from my memory I find faint 
phantasmagorical memories of 
historical moments when the 
pre-lesson study presentation 
actually had something to do 
with the subject of the lesson 
for the week. I recall fond, 
happy moments when the 
teacher had time to do more 
than just barely get into the 
subject matter before the apolo- 
getic voice of the superintendent 

teachers." 
There were even times, which 
I'd forgotten, 



study warmup in which he 
would present the main point or 
points of the lesson. This re- 
lieved the individual class 
teacher of the necessity to talk 
incessantly for the first 5 min- 
utes of his class to give those 
who had not studied their les- 
sons enough background mate- 
rial to discuss intelligently. 

Those were delightful days, 
but they seem to have receded 
into the distant past. In their 
place have appeared three- and 
four-person special presenta- 

and three special music per- 
formances, and interminable 
speeches upon vaguely related 
topics that run on, and on 
and on. Then the teacher finds 
that the prime reason for the 
existence of the Sabbath School 
program has been cut to 10-20 
minutes. Sabbath School is for 
class discussion and learning, or 
so it used to be, 

I can remember carrying 
from Sabbath School to the 
church service an alert mind, 
eager to listen and, again, to 
learn. But the fog seems to 
close in at times, and those 
pleasant memories fade into 
yesteryear.

take them. 
In the past, we have been 
comforted to know that teachers 
assign tests one right after 
another; they (or their renders) 
spend long hours and 
several red pens over stacks of 
papers. Our efforts in laking a 
only partially repaid 
by hearing the teachers com- 
plain. We were always glad to 
:uggest that they give fewer 

Now even that student satis- 
faction is being shattered. We 
study hours fur a test, empty 
brains of all possible knowl- 
dge deciding the correct an- 
only to have a computer

11 a matter of minutes — 
for instance, a "Greenleaf" 200- 
point multiple answer history 
test for 100 students in about 
: the same time 
.vriting the report on paper. 
Soon students will be receiv- 
g the first college statements 
done by computer. It keeps com- 
plete files of each student's 
statement balance. At the end 
of each month, charges are fed 
into the computer and six copies 
of the statements are written. 

A record of the income from 
each college department is in- 
cluded at the end of this pro- 
gram, or report, for use by the 
anting office. The whole 
:edure requires about 8-10 

Work has also been done for 
the office of records and admis- 
sting with registra- 
tion and in compiling class 
ime lists. 

Although the computer sci- 
ice department aids the col- 
lege administratively, it exists 
educational oppor- 
tunity. A "hands on" policy 
has been established for the stu- 
dents in programming and data 
processing classes. The student 
is assigned various problems in 
his class and is then required to 
Ive the problem by operating 
e computer and/or data pre- 
ssing machines. 
Under the direction of Robert 
McCurdy, assistant professor of 
physics, the department em- 
ploys nine students. Six boys, 
ith strong math backgrounds, 
work in programming instruc- 
tions to the computer. Some of 
them have had computer 
courses. SMC offers four courses 
', all of which fulfill the ap- 
plied arts general education re- 
quirement. 

Fortran, the science language 
(which we use here in a com- 
mercial setting), was offered 
here last school year as a three- 
course. Three girls work 
ur department punching 
t cards, running the 
•, and doing work which 
not necessarily require a 
"miIi background. 

impressive aspect of 
the computer is production. 
Daily worship reports are pro- 
cessed each evening for both 
dormitories. A report is written 
for the deans, cards punched for 
students absent from wor- 
ship, a record of each student's 
attendance recorded in a storage 
file containing each student's 
record for the semester, and ex- 
cuses made for past absences all 
program, which runs 




rate of 80 lines a minute. 

about 10 minutes for each 

dormitory. 

The computer science depart- 
ment has been steadily growing 
for almost two years. The first 
machine obtained was an 026 
IBM key punch in the spring of 
1968. New equipment has been 
arriving on campus ever since. 

Among this new equipment 
have been a 514 reproihn in" 
punch and mark sense machine 
which makes it possible to read 
pencil marks on cards, an 082 
card sorter which will sort 600 
cards a minute, a 548 alphabetic 
interpreter which reads holes in 
a computer card and writes on 
the card what the holes mean, 
two more key punch machines 



SOUTHERN ACCENT 

and a univac 1710 combination 
key punch, interpreter, and 
verifyer (which makes it possi- 
ble to "proof-read" data before 
placing it in the computer). 

McKee Bakery has loaned 
(the only machine not on lease) 
a burster which separates the 
con tin nous forms which are 
printed by the computer. 

The computer, an IBM 1130, 
has been running since Sept. 10, 
1969. It consists of a central 
processing unit with 8000 stor- 
age spaces, and a disk drive 
which can handle a disk boast- 
ing 512,000 additional storage 

There is a card reader-punch 
combination unit which reads 
cards at the rate of 160 cards a 
minute and a line printer that 
prints a whole line at one time 
at the rate of 80 lines per min- 

When the present library 
building is vacated and the new 
one functioning, the computer 
science department will occupy 
space now taken by the first 
floor of "stacks" in the old build- 
ing. 

Teachers are not going to gel 
out of grading tests completely. 
however. The computer can 
only grade objective tests — 
multiple choice, true/false, etc. 
The administration will not en- 
courage all teacher?, to give these 
types of tests. Probably within 
the next two years, about half 
of the tests given will be graded 
by computer. 



Ingathering. The Other Side 




By Mike 

Mention the word "Ingather- 
ing" and you'll probably get 
many varied reactions. When 
Ingathering time rolls around, 
some think of the opportunity 
it brings to tell others of the 
world-wide work of the church, 
and others think of the valuable 
help which will be given to the 
world's disaster-stricken and im- 
poverished peoples. 

Educators may think of the 
much-needed schools that will 
be built: mission doctors may 
think of the expensive but nec- 
essary equipment which they 
may now receive; and youth 
leaders may think of the many 
neglected children who may 
now be sent to summer camp. 

Whatever one's thoughts on 
Ingathering may be, it cannot 
be denied that Ingathering 
makes a significant contribution 
to the church's work of assisting 
others. Yet, is that all it does? 
What does Ingathering do for 
you, the church member? 

After last week's Field Day, 
the most successful in SMC's 
history, there are at least three 
SMC students who can claim 
1 1 igai I iriing really did some- 
thing for them. 

How would you feel if you 
were given a $100 check? Un- 
fortunately, most of us don't 
know how we would feel be- 
cause it has never happened. 
But it did happen to Marc Gen- 
ton, senior theology major from 
Bradenton, Fla., and Dottie 
Peterson, sophomore elemen- 
tary education major from Mi- 
ami, while they were soliciting 
on Lookout Mountain. Perhaps 
the most interesting thing about 
their experience is what hap- 
pened after they received this 
unusual donation. 

What exactly would you say 
to the next person you solicited 
after being given such a dona- 
tion? Well, Marc apparently 
spoke the right words as his 
story reveals: "Soliciting the 
next home." Marc relates, "We 
were met at the door by a gentle- 
man who, after listening to our 
canvass, asked what the usual 
donation is. 




Rowed Returns; Takes Library Staff Post 



By Bob Ecgenbehger 

Miss Lois Rowell fills a new 

position at the SMC library, 

that of head periodical librarian. 
Her responsibility is to make ac- 
cessible to library users almost 
600 periodicals, including popu- 
lar magazines, newspapers and 
all Seventh-day Adventist peri- 
odicals. She assists teachers in 
ordering periodicals to represent 
the major fields of the curric- 

Ordering, receiving, and bind- 
ing periodicals come under 

Miss Rowell's supervision. She 
is in charge of keeping the peri- 
odical collection complete and 
ordering missing back issues, ac- 



cording to Charles Davis, associ- 
ate professor of librarian ship 
The issues are kept available for 
use, either current or bound. He 
added that in a college library, 
|iei loihrals are important for re- 
search work. 

Miss Rowell is back at SMC 
after a year's leave of absence 
to get her master's degree in 
Science of Librarianship at 
Western Michigan University. 
She was awarded a $2200 fel- 
lowship plus tuition and fees by 
the U.S. Office of Education for 
her study. 



From 1966 to 1968 she taught 
piano and organ in the music 
department of SMC. She com- 
pleted undergraduate work at 
Pacific Union College and re- 
ceived the master's degree in 
music at the University of 
Southern California. 

When asked about the new 
library, Miss Rowell commented 
on the larger area for use of 
periodicals, both current and 
bound issues. She added that 
there will be more space and 
equipment in the new building. 



$100 checV solicited by Dottie ^& 
Peterson and Marc Genton is *^ 
proudly displayed. 

"My reply," continued Gen- 
ton, "was that his neighbor 
gave $100 and a lady down the 
street gave $5. Usually, con- 
tributions range anywhere in- 
between." 

Somewhat placing himself on 
the spot, this gentleman chose 
the "in-between" sum of $25 
and gave Marc and Dottie a 
donation for that amount. 

It is certain that we all can- 
But, certainly this experience 
shows what could happen if you 
ever get someone to give you a 
$100 donation. Never happen? 
Check with Marc Genton and 
Dottie Peterson. They never ex- 
pected it to happen either. 

A quite different experience 
happened to yet another SMC 
student. Merrie Zumstein, jun- 
ior foods and nutrition major 
from Madison, Tenn., hardly 
expected what was going to hap- 
pen as she approached the 
building housing the radio sta- 
tion, WGUN-AM in Atlanta. 

Entering the building, she was 
met by Billy Cooper, a station 
disc jockey. She mentioned 
what she was doing and asked 
him if he would like to make a 
contribution. Becoming inter- 
ested in what she had said, 
Cooper asked Merrie if she 
would like to explain the In- 
gathering project over the radio 
since he was going on the air 
shortly. Somewhat hesitant and 
surprised, Merrie consented. 

While on the air, Cooper not 
only asked Merrie questions 
concerning the Ingathering pro- 
ject, but he also questioned 
about SDA doctrines and health 
habits. "He seemed to know 
quite a bit about our church's 
beliefs even to the point of our 
vegetarian diets," said Merrie. 

As a result of their very un- 
usual experiences, both Marc 
and Merrie have memorable, if 
not even pleasant, events to re- | 
call and relate concerning last 
week's Field Day. They, like 
most of the 500 other students 
who actively participated in the 
Field Day, found the other side 
of Ingathering — the real satis- 
faction found in achieving a 
worthwhile goal. 




Roof Organizes Memories', 
Asks Students for Photos 



Plans for this year's Southern 
Memories are beginning to 
evolve. Editor Marjorie Roof 
met with her staff recently 
to lay the ground work. Staff 
responsibility, layout and gen- 
eral procedures were discussed 
with Gary Benmark, area rep- 
resentative for Henington Pub- 
lishing Co., who will print the 
Memories this year. 

Miss Roof asks students who 



may have pictures that could be 
used in the Memories to bring 
them to her office or give them 
to the staff photographer. 
Charles Mills. Not all campus 
activities are refracted by the 
lens of the photographer's cam- 
e r a — especially those of 
Thatcher Hall, she notes. 

The business manager is Ed- 
die Neal, assistant editor is Bob- 
bie Piatt, and Miss Carolyn 
Luce is the advisor.

"Free days" to lake the place 
of the spring and fall picnics 
was one topic of debate in Oc- 
tober's Intercom meeting be- 
tween students and college ad- 

"These free days will serve a 
dual purpose." noted Dr. Frank 
Kniltel. academic dean. "They 
will act as a 'pop-off valve' for 
academic pressures and also al- 
low the students to catch up 
work without being penalized 
by class absence." 

The "free day" idea came up 
when those present discussed 
the lack of student interest in the 
fall SA picnic. Attendance this 
year was about 300, which is 
less than one-fourlh of the en- 
rollment. 

"The present policy of the 
school to restrict all students 
that don't participate to the 
campus is simply not working."

of student affairs He added th.it

Intercom Really Works 



m 



a 



Intercom works! Five students were surprised last week at 
the frankness and completeness of the answers that the admin- 
istration had for the student's questions. Nothing seemed taboo 
to discuss. The cooperation of the administration was, not only 
surprising, but also welcomed. Rapport between students and 
school reached new highs. 

Yet, for all the good that Intercom did, it was only a small 
bit of what could be accomplished in Intercom were it attended 
like it should be. Neither students nor administration can boast 
of the fact that only II were present, and that the school repre- 
sentatives outnumbered the students. Had more interested stu- 
dents attended, perhaps even more could have been discussed, 
and more discovered about what the administration does and 
thinks. 

Are students doing a disservice to themselves by staying 
away from such meetings? The ACCENT thinks so. The admin- 
istration is not set in their ways, as some would suppose. Staff 
members are constantly trying to find new approaches to make 
life easier or more challenging to the student. But, they don't 
always know what the student consensus is on new plans, and 
they would like to know. 

Want to help plan the school's policy for the next few years? 
Want to let the administration know what's bothering you? Want 
to find out why what's being done is being done? Come to the 
next Intercom, and be a truly informed student.

Commentary 



Village Communitation$~-A Solution 

Is there o communication gap between village students and 
the test ol the college? We think so. Village students frequently 
minn out on activities merely because they are not informed about 
them. Commuting students ate seldom told of last-minute changes 
in the time and place of club meetings and ball games. One 
student, a member of a soliball team and resident of Chattanooga, 
said. "I drove all the way out here one evening only to find that 
the game had been cancelled." 

Village students miss announcements that are made in dorm 
worships and posted on dormitory bulletin boards. Village stu- 
dents don't know what goes on in residence hall clubs. Are the 
men's and women's clubs only for residence hall students? If so, 
why can't village students form their own club, for presently they 
are not informed of the meetings of the existing clubs. 

Village students are not told when recreation facilities are 
available. One student stated, "I enjoy playing tennis and other 
sports, but I don't know when the playing courts are available." 
Are these facilities for boarding students only? Most village stu- 
dents experience a lack of belonging to the school family. 

What can be done about this communication gap? Would 
it be feasible for village students to be invited to join the residence 
hall clubs? Why not? We suggest that a central place be es- 
tablished, perhaps in Lynn Wood Hall, for posting announcements 
that village students miss in dorm worships and on dorm bulletin 
boards.

Draft, How to be 1-0' 



Perhaps the one resolution passed at the General Confer- 
ence's Fall Council last month that most interest students at 
SMC is the resolution regarding the 1-0 draft classification. 

The church has asked its members to support those young 
men who decide that the l-O classification is what they desire. 
The steps that are taken when one asks for help in obtaining an 
conscientious objector classification are as follows: (I) Ask the 
young man to first consider the historic teaching of the church on 
noncombatancy, which haa been to favor the 1-AO draft classi- 
fication. (2) When a consistent religious experience is established, 
pastoral support, guidance, and counsel be provided. 

In the past, the ACCENT has lobbied for this change in d< 





Apathetic, Ignorant, SMC 



i..l lull,. 



nomi national feeling towards the 1-0 classification. It 
students pressure on all the campuses, and personal inside work 
by some of the General Conference officers, that this new resolu- 
tion has come into being. 

But this resolution is not a ready solution to the draftee's 
problems. To get the support that the GC has voted, the student 
must prove to his counselors that he is worthy of such support. 
When he applies for this classification, many of his acqucrin lances 
are asked about his church membership and participation in 
services, his standards of conduct, and previous expressions of 
belief supporting his request of 1-0 classification. 

So, if you really want that l-O draft status, and you are 
expecting support from your teachers, pastors and friends in 
helping you get that classification, make sure you are living the

Members ol Ihe ACCENT staff recently relumed from a tour-

tional college newspapers. Meetings and discussion ranged from 
new techniques ol newspaper design, layout, and makeup lo 
questions on the policies ol the various papers. 

During Ihe workshop, Ihose present were presented with a 
set ol guidelines lor Ihe college papers. These guidelines were

Volante-From California to Hawaii and Bach 



By Cheryl Jetter 
Few students can boast of 
having a swimming pool in their 
backyards, but fewer yet can 
claim to have a sailboat in their 
pool. Vicki Fults, a sophomore 
from suburban Los Angeles, 
could have told you a story al- 
most like that last summer. 

Her father has an unusual 
hobby; he builds sailboats. That 
in itself is not so unusual, except 
that the last one he built was 
40' by 28' and sailed from Cali- 
fornia lo Hawaii and back. 

Fults live in an inconvenient 
location for boat construction. 
Niv.*rt]i<-l':'ss. fnr two years Ihev 
watched building materials be- 
come a sailboat on a platform 
over the swimming pool in their 
backyard. A hired crane, flat- 
bed truck, and a specially de- 
signed route were required to 
transfer the completed master- 
piece to the Los Angeles beach 
where it was christened "Vol- 

Two weeks later, after sev- 
eral practice runs, the "Vol- 
ante" left Los Angeles for Ha- 
waii. On board were the Fults 
f.imily and several cousins and 
friends. 

"When the time came, we 
could hardly believe it!" com- 
ments Vicki. "Even getting on 
the boat we kept asking, 'Is this 
for real?' " 

Before long, they discovered 
that it was real. The first two 
days of sailing were a constant 
bout with rough weather, 10-20 
foot waves, and seasickness. 

"We couldn't keep food down. 
Standing on deck was like stand- 
ing in a room with a high wall 
of undulating water. Straight 
up was a ceiling of gray sky." 

Two days of storm subsided 
into a week of cold, wind, and 




lonely scene to look upon — -the 
"Volant*'." so huge and impos- 
ing in the streets of Los An- 
geles, now no more than a per- 
iod on a page of black water. 
The elements saw it and smiled 
a smile of bright sunshine and 
warm winds that lasted the re- 
mainder of their trip to Hawaii. 

Ship life quickly became rou- 
tine. The crew was divided in- 
to five pairs, each pair with its 
specific hours of deck watch. 

"We had to be really careful 
when learning to steer. It was 
so easy to get off course. Even 
one degree would send us 60 
miles past our destination." 

Water was rationed: one-half 
cup for teeth-brushing, and one- 
half cup for face-washing per 
day. Baths? Oh, well, Hawaii 
wasn't that far away. 

Vicki's mother was the chief 
cook. One day, attempting to 
economize, she made mashed 
potatoes adding carefully boiled 
salt water. "I tried a new 
thing," she explained. One bite 



lonely. We had each other, and 
the ham radio. After supper 
every night, everyone gathered 
around the radio, and made 
contact with friends on shore. 
Even on watch in the middle of 
the night, we weren't alone, the 
stars were so close that they be- 
came our companions, and God 
seemed so very close." 

The nights weren't always 
clear and beautiful. Sometimes 
rough weather would turn the 
sea into a strong opponent. 
Steering became a wrestling 
match with the wheel, and 
nothing could be seen except 
spatters of water against the 
windshield. 

"Then we thought about get- 
ting there — to Hawaii. We had 
been passing islands here and 
there, but they looked so deso- 
late that we never cared to stop.

when we got close enough, the 
air smelled like flowers and 
pineapple. I'll never forget it." 

Louis Sommerville, a fresh- 
man from Candler, N.C., sailed 
with his uncle and uncle's fam- 
ily on the "Volante." 

On the return trip the " Vol- 
ante" got a bad start out of 
Hawaii, meeting with a power- 
ful storm almost immediately. 
Two hundred miles from the 
islands, the crew decided lo 
return for repairs. While back 
in Hawaii, Vicki and her mother 
and two sisters decided to return 
to Los Angeles via plane. Re- 
pairs were extensive, and seven 
days passed before the "Vol- 
ante" set out again with its 
slightly altered crew. 

This time the crew was di- 
vided into three pairs, each pair 
with two hours on watch and 
four hours off. Free time was 
spent reading, sleeping, and 
eating. 

"Sleep was split up pretty 
bad.'* says Louis. "Besides the 
watch duty, occasionally an 'All 
hands on deck' call interfered, 
so that it seemed we were al- 
ways tired." 

The ship's cook had flown 
back to Los Angeles, and canned 
and starchy foods became the 
diet. The oranges were gone in 
10 to 12 days. 

"We craved ice cream. Three 
or four ships passed us and we 
wanted them to stop just for 
that simple reason — ice cream." 

One night the watch spotted 
some ships on the horizon; ap- 
parently the "Volante" had 
entered a shipping lane. Soon 
a giant tanker was sighted nil 
starboard, heading straight for 
the sailboat. 

Usually, sailboats have the 
right-of-way in such circum- 
stances, but since a tanker re- 
quires some 3,000 yards to alter 
its course and several miles to 
come to a stop, this lime it was 
the "Volante" to steer 



aside. Our skipper was awak- 
ened, the engine started, and 
fewer than 150 yards from the 
tanker (by now flashing its 
spreader lights), the "Volante" 
cleared out of the collision 
course. _ 

Although the "Volante" re- \^J | 
quired only two weeks to reach 
Hawaii, a record for its type of 
craft, it was soon apparent that 
the return voyage would take 
longer. She was plagued with 
calms, and with the calms usu- 
ally came a feeling of mid-ocean 
isolation and depression. 

"It was lonely — just ocean, 
sky, water, and sun. Without 
the wind, the engine was still 
moving us, but there was no ac- 
companying feeling of progress 






, thai 



Without the wind, California 
seemed very far away, but when 
the wind started up, almost 
simultaneously a song would 
too, and some laughter. 

"We did have fun. laughing

; the ( 



night, while two of us were on 
watch, the wind quit. Sails were 
flapping, so we lowered them, 
put on the running lights, and 
started to bed. Reaching our 
bunks, spontaneously we began 
to laugh, Everyone else in the 
room woke up. and we all must 
have laughed for 20 minutes. 
Here we were, 1,000 miles from 
the California coast in a tiny 
sailboat on a huge ocean, and 
we had just taken the sails 

The days were slowly con- 
sumed. Twenty-three days 
from Hawaii, and only 300 
miles from her destination, the 
"Volante" ran into a heavy 
storm. Forty-foot waves and 40 
MPH winds carried her south 
of San Diego, making it neces- 
sary, when the storm finally 
ceased to take a long, hard, zig- 
zag course up the coast against 
the wind. Twenty-six days out 
of Hawaii, the "Volante" saw 
port again.

Lack of Business 
Closes Music House 



,.H I e--ible 



By Lynda Hughes 
After eight years of not-so- 
prosperous sales, SMC's College 
Music House will finally close 
doors. Administrative Coun- 
action has told the lagging 
siness, located in a white 
structure north of the music 
building, to terminate on De- 
cember 31, 1969. 
When a store closes, the ques- 
>n is asked, "What hap- 
pened?" The answers to that 
question are always only specu- 
is. Is the problem ineffec- 
j advertising? unpopular 
stock? or no demand? 



Since the Music House was 
beeun eight years ago by Mor- 
ris Taylor, head of SMC's music 
department at that time, no all- 
out advertising or informing 
campaign has been conducted. 
Obscurely located at the end of 
the college campus, the business 
is not even known of by many 
of the school's juniors and sen- 
iors other than the music ma- 

Because the store has been 
operated through SMC's music 
department, music students 



.jvailnble could be classified as 
"dead stock," the more popular 
music having already been sold. 

A demand for stock is a 
necessary prerequisite for any 
successful business. Most of the 
demand, says Mrs. Lovejoy, has 
been from nearby church di- 
rectors, music instructors, and 
the Chattanooga Boys' Choir. 

Mrs. Lovejoy believes that 
the business has potential for 
someone willing to invest. Its 
success with non-SMC patrons 
could be duplicated here in Col- 
legedale, she feels, if the 
relocated i: 

Where is that place? Charles 
Fleming, SMC's general man- 
ager, does not feel that the place 
is in the College Plaza shopping 
center. Merchandise would pos- 
sibly duplicate that of the 
Southern Mercantile and Geor- 
gia-Cumberland Book and Bible 
House, he says. 

The store's scheduled close is 
in December and according to 
Fleming, "no room will be 
available in the shopping center 
until next summer when the 
new supermarket is built." 

In addition, Fleming feels 
that Collegedale's market po- 
tential for music does not indi- 
cate sufficient support for a local 
specialized store.

Church Closes Door on 'Gate' 



By Mike Foxworth 

The Gate — often referred to 
in some quarters as "Chatta- 
nooga's Gate to Christianity" — 
may now find it difficult to buy 
oil for its hinges. 

In action taken by the Col- 
legedale Church Board on Mon- 
day, Nov. 10, it was voted to 
discontinue support of the Gate 
at the end of December, reports 
Elder John Loor, church pastor. 

"The board's action was not 
unexpected," reports Wayne 
Eastep and Bob Hunter, co- 
managers of the Gate. "Last 
July, the board set down various 
guidelines for the Gate to follow 
and for reasons partially beyond 
our control, we have not been 
able to meet all of their require- 
ments at this date," says Eastep. 

Commenting on the board's 
decision, Elder Loor notes that

"but the board felt it 
sary to withdraw Us support be- 
cause the Gate was still not as 
representative of the church as 
it should be." 

"I'm sorry that we have lost 
the church's support," says 
Eastep. "We, the Gate staff, 
prefer working through the or- 
ganization," he adds. 

"One benefit of the board's 
action," says Eastep, "is that 
some church members will no 
longer have to feel that the Gate 
is misrepresenting them, al- 
though we never intended to 
misrepresent the church. We 
have simply tried to communi- 
cate with those whom the 
church has not communicated 
with in the past." 

Eastep lists three basic rea- 
sons why the Gate operates: 

"The primary reason is to 
share Christ and the Advent 



i he second purpose is to 
help Adventist youth in wit- 
nessing. 

"The third is to relate the 
Church to the social ills of the 

According to Eastep and 
Hunter, both of whom have 
been actively involved with the 
Gate since its opening last 
March, the board's decision was 
not one directed against the 
Gate's purposes, but instead was 
one directed against the methods 
employed by the Gate. 

"Particularly, the board 
seemed disenchanted with the 
weekly Saturday night pro- 
gram," says Eastep. 

"The board had some time 
ago informed us that our pro- 
gram should be expanded to in- 
clude activities other than the 
Saturday night program," re- 
ports Eastep. 

"And this was done," he con- 



tinues. "We began a Friday 

night meditations program, in- 
ductive Bible study groups, a 
Saturday afternoon Bible story 
hour for children living in the 
area of the Gate, and just this 
week the SMC chapter of the 
American Temperance Society 
began a Five-Day Plan at the 
Gate." 

"Apparently," says Eastep, 
"the Saturday night programs 
were the chief and ultimate 
factors which brought about the 
board's decision." 

What happens at the Gate on 
Saturday night? Eastep de- 
scribes the program and selling 
as follows: 

"The Gate's atmosphere is 
similar to a 'coffee house.' There 
is a stage in the middle of the 
room around which are situated 
large electric wire spools which 
are used as tables. Red and 
white tablecloths and candles as- 
sist in creating a conversational 
atmosphere. 



"On one wall there is an op 
art concept of the four beasts of 
Daniel seven. The opposite wall 
is paneled with weathered grey 
planks. A rotating display of 
local art contributes to the color 
of the Gate. 

"The program takes place 
between 8 and 12 p.m. At 30 
minute intervals a 10 minute 
program begins which usually 
consists of folk music, poetry, a 
discussion period, and occasion- 
ally a movie such as The Para- 
ble or Homo Homini. 

"The main thrust of the Sat- 
urday night program lakes place 
around the 14 tables at which 
up to 90 people may be seated. 
Seated with the Gate's visitors 
around the tables is a staff of 
between 20 and 30 Seventh-day 
Adventist youth who engage in 
conversation with the non- 
SDA's.

Freshman Don Pate Wins 
SMC Temperance Orations 

Don Pate, freshman theology 
major from Portland, Ore., re- 
ceived the first place award in 
the annual temperance oration 
contest for his oration, "His 
Name Also Was Don." 

Pate's story was that of a 
close friend with whom he 
worked one summer during 
high school. 

When Pate asked his anemic 
partner why he worked, the 
man pulled his shirt sleeve up 
slowly displaying his arm which 
'tore the scars of a heroin 
mainliner" and said, "Man, 
've got to work to pay for my 
habit." 

Shortly thereafter Pate's 
friend told him he was quitting 
i. "I'm going to quit the 
stuff— it's killing me and I can 
feel it." 




"Never before have I seen a 
nan look so desperate," said 
'ate, "but then I've never before 
een a man that's dying." 

Pate, in winning the contest, 
ssured himself an opportunity

Ortiz told the story of a friend

In closing Ortiz remarked, "If

Are There Demons in Talge? 






What perverse demon stalked the noisy halls of Talge a 
lew nights not so long ago? Was it the spirit of contumely, 
pusillanimity, or procrastination? Who knows? Perhaps, like the 
classic tempter, this imp changed his form to suit his subject. 

Whoever he was, however he worked, he was successful 
enough that the repurcussions were almost immediately felt in 
Thatcher, although that stronghold of feminity is removed by sev- 
eral hundred feet from the sight of his labors. 

Hopefully it WAS some outside force and not something in- 
nate in the hearts of certain young men that caused them to act 
so rudely to the young ladies who, not without great fear and 
trembling, sent them invitations to the Women's Reception, Nov. 
23, 

It is unfortunate enough that a number of the gentlemen of 
Talge felt themselves of such superior quality that, although they 
received as many as four invitations, they could not find one 
worthy of their acceptance. 

It is even more unfortunate that some of these same "gentle- 
men" did not even have enough common courtesy to notify the 
young ladies of their refusals. Instead, they merely returned the 
accept-reject cards to the desk at Thatcher and the girls had to 
check there to find their answers. 

Worst of all, some of these refusals (and some acceptances 
also) were turned in as many as four days after the 



, such cases were not the general thing. Yet they 
i enough to make one wonder if refinement, cour- 
tesy, and concern for the feelings of others are becoming passe 
on the campus of SMC.

One greater and continuing step has been made at SMC

this reason we recognize the administration's recent appointments 
as being an enlargement of an existing program, but we hope 
that this enlargement will bring about an equal growth in under- 
standing between students and faculty.

"Second, the possible ill-ef- 
fects of non-Adventists upon the 
Adventists was too great a risk. 

"Third, the public image of 
the Gate is not desirable to the 
church." 

"In summary," says Hunter, 
"I believe that the decision 
reached by those members of 
the board who felt that support 
should be withdrawn was based 
from an observer's viewpoint 
and many adults and students 
who had also once felt ihe same 
way changed their opinions 
when they became involved m

"In considering the board's 
decKmn." says Eastep, "we do 
not anticipate that the (, ale will 
close. We believe we can oper- 
ate without the church's finan- 
cial support." 

Eastep reports that total con- 
tributions from the church have 
paid under one third of the 
Gale's total operating expenses 
since its opening last spring.

I think it is very thin." "No,

To settle the argument, the two 
i put down their news- 
paper and decided to see for 
l lien ^elve>. They went down to 
jlhe Seventh-day Adventist's air- 
Ltorium. As they approached 
'the strange looking building 
they saw the brightly lighted 
sign that decorated the front en- 
trance. "Bible Speaks, Evange- 
listic Crusade by Bruce John- 
ston." "How can the Bible 
speak?" "That I would like to 
see!" "Let's go in and find out 
what this crusade is all about 
and settle our argument." As 
they entered the building and 
heard the singing, they com- 
pletely forgot the reason they 
had come for. 

Korean Union Mission's new 
airatorium drew the attention of 
hundreds of people including 
the local press. This building 
was the first of its kind in 
Korea, and everyone was curi- 
ous. "What made it stay up?" 
As a result the opening meeting 
of the Bible Speaks Crusade 
opened with a crowd so large 
that the local police came to as- 
sist. Elder Bruce Johnston, 
Evangelist for the Far Eastern 
Division, was the speaker for the 
meetings and was assisted by 
the ministers of the area who 
were attending a field school of 
which the crusade was a part. 
The opening night there was a 
power failure fifteen minutes 
before the meeting was to begin 
and the auditorium started to 
come down. It was shortly re- 
stored, and the meetings began 
on schedule. 

Five nights after the opening 
meeting a typhoon hit the coast 
of Pusan. Winds and rain 
drenched the city worse than 
anything in the past 25 years. 
Scores of people were killed as 
a result of the storm, but the

prize of $100. Second and third 
prizes of S50 and $25 will also 
be awarded. In event of a tie, 
the entry bearing the earliest

award, so an early response is 
indicated. 

Contestants may use either 
cards provided by youth leaders 
of the church or entry blanks 
published in church periodicals. 

The editors urge young writ- 
ers to submit manuscripts or 
article and story queries. "It's

All-Stars Stitch 



The All-Stars literally left 
Gryte's team in stitches in the 
Gryte-All Star game last Satur- 
day night. And it was one play 
that broke everything wide 
open — from the game to Coach 
Thomas' and Jim Jenks' head*! 
The final score of 45-19 belied 
the closely -fought battle that the 
game really was. 

The big play came about 
two-thirds of the way through 
the second half, All-Stars lead- 
ing 20-19, when Mark Weigley 
intercepted a Thomas pass. 
Trying f o r Weigley *s flags 
Thomas and Jenks collided. 
opening facial cuts requiring 10 
stitches for Thomas and 5 
stitches for Jenks. Oh. yes, they 
did get Weigley's flag! 

With Thomas and Jenks 
both out of the game, the All- 
Stars quickly capitalized on 
Gryte's loss and scored four 
touchdowns in six minutes. 
Three of the touchdowns were 
scored by Ron Johnson, who had 
been previously covered by 
Thomas. Gryte's offense, minus 
mastermind quarterback Thom- 
as, and glue-fingered Jenks. 
couldn't mount a sustained 
drive, and were forced to give 
up the ball without scoring. 

Most spectators left with the 
injuries vividly pressed on their 
minds. What was overlooked, 
unfortunately, were outstanding 
efforts on the part of both teams. 
Mike Roberts, Ail-Star quarter- 
back, undoubtedly played one 
of his finest games ever, throw-

ing for 315 yards and seven 
touchdowns. All-Star halfback 
Johnson caught for 132 yards, 
and All-Star end Joe Hare re- 
ceived for another 84 yards. 
Gary Gryte, from his halfback 
slot, ran "for 101 yards, plus 73 
mure vards coming on kick-off 
and punt return yardage. All- 
Star linebacker Bo Fanluli- ran 
back one interception for 49 
yank one of four passes inter- 
cepted by the All-Star defense. 
Johnson scored 25 points to top 
both teams' scoring. 

What had started out being a 
thriller for the 100-odd fans who 
braved the 30° weather ended 
up being quite a rout, as the All- 
Stars rubbed salt in Gryte's 
wounds, adding insult i« injurv! 



Final Standings and Statistics 



Adventist participation in the 
Army's Project Whitecoat re- 
cently came under study by a 
specially appointed General 

Conference committee, accord- 
ing to the directors of the SDA's 
National Service Organization 
(NSO). 

Project Whitecoat has come 
under fire recently by critics 
who are skeptical of its "peace- 
ful" application. Rep. Richard 
McCarthy of New York, who 
has been making a special study 
of chemical and biological war- 
fare (CBW) used by the De- 
fense Department recently said 
that the use of SDA's at Fort 
Derrick "is the worst part of the 
whole thing." 

The GC committee visited 
FortDetrickonSept.il. After 
spending the entire afternoon 
with Col. Dan Crozier, USA, 
MC, the commanding officer of 
the unit, probing the project and 
evaluating Adventist involve- 
ment in it, the committee re- 
ported the results of their study 
to the GC officers. 

The special committee found 
that the Project Whitecoat unit 
is freely open to qualified in- 
spectors — there are no locked or 
closed laboratories. The ad- 
jacent fully-enclosed and classi- 
fied medical unit at Fort Det- 
rick dealing with chemical and 
biological warfare is not related 
to Project Whitecoat in any 
way. 

Over 1500 men have served 
in the unit at Fort Detrick since 
the first program was estab- 
lished in 1953. Since then, over 
160 articles and reports of the 
research have been published in 
medical journals. 

During the last three years 
alone, 49 medical research insti- 
tutions have used the vaccines 
developed in the project to pro- 
tect their personnel engaged in 
research with infectious disease 

Although volunteers in the 
program run slight risks, every 
precaution possible is used, and 
elaborate safeguards are set up. 
Hundreds of servicemen have 
been sick while engaged in the 
studies, but there has been no 
documented medical proof of 
any permanent damage to any-

Several Collegedale men have 
participated in the White Coats 
and state their feelings concern-

Wilfred Smith, known as

gave me a chance to see what 
medical science is doing, not 
only in the military, but in 
civilian life as well." Buddy

One argument which the 
Gate's supporters used as evi- 
dence of the project's success 
was the recent baptism of a 
former motorcycle gang leader 
who had been led to Christ by 
workers at the Gate, notes Elder 
Buf. 

"Other issues played a greater 
influence," says Elder Ruf. 
"Many of the board members 
were looking for more results. 
They expected that Bible studies 
should be in progress with a 
considerable number of the 
Gate contacts and that more of 
these contacts should be attend- 
ing some SDA church," says 
Elder Ruf. 

"Whether they are right in 
expecting this," continues Elder 
Ruf. "is the main crux of the 
question," 

Another church board mem- 
ber, Francis Costerisan, super- 
intendent of plant maintenance 
and construction for the college, 
says that "the Gate couldn't pos- 
sibly be representative of our 
church standard." 

Costerisan remarked that 
when he first saw the Gate he 
had thought it was a type of 
night dub rather than an evan- 
gelistic center. 

Costerisan added that perhaps 
his chief concern regarding the 
Gate is what he called the 
"look" of the SMC students who 
are working at the Gate. He 
said that their "appearance

the types of individ-

the Gate, but the chief questions 
asked by most board members 
were: Is the Gate in harmony 
with our church standards and 
is it possible that we are running 
a great risk of "losing" our own 
young people "to the world" by 
operating a place such as the 
Gate? 

None of the board members 
seemed to know the answers to 
these questions, but it was 
thought that until some accurate 
answers were given and until 
complete support could be given 
to the Gate by all members of 
the church, it was probably best 
for the church to officially with- 
draw its support of the Gate.

young people are leaving the church. In some 

places. 90 percent are dropping out, though the rate is lower in 
other places. Everywhere the problem is enough to make the 
leaders worried. 

Not only are the leaders worried about the drop-outs, but 
the remaining youth also worry. These youth are concerned also 
in the lack ol success the church has had rn youth evangelism. 
Because ol this concern, young people in our church today have 
designed programs and pli 
church, and cut down at 1 
leaving the church. 

These programs devised by Adventist young people are 
ollen quite well accepted by young and old alike. Yet, there 
always seems to be some members of the church that frown on 
these new activities because of the procedures used, or the prin- 
ciples involved. 

The young people today feel that the church has tried and 
has seemingly failed with their youth, and they feel that the least 
that the church can do now is let the young people try out their 

The ones who should know best what today's youth want 
are today's youth. It's the Christian young person that can most 
effectively relate to his peers. The "now" generation distrusts 
anyone over 30, it seems. For that matter, they don't put much 
faith in anything over thirty years old. including the traditional 
church programs. Thus it is that the plans that the youth devise 
should be more likely to succeed with young people than plans 
devised by yesterdays youth. 

Across the country, SDA youth are coming up with new 
evangelistic ideas— SMC's Gate, Florida's Maranatha, Califor- 
nia's Team Act and Park Witnessing, and the Traveler's and 
Hitchhiker's bands. In almost every case, the youth have met 
with some opposition and "static" from some church members. 
Yet, everyone of these plans has been successful. 

Older members counter the claims of youth success by say- 
ing that principle is compromised, and the church image is low- 
ered. It is possible that through an osmotic process, the Christian 
workers are lowered to the level of those they are trying to con- 
vert. And it may be even true that young people in the church 
have left the church after or while participating in these youth 
programs. 

Yet, if the Christian young people working with the other 
youth are truly sincere Christians, Christ will live in them to such 
an extent that they can't help but raise the lives of those for whom 
they are working. In fact, by their Christian example, they can 
show the world that the Christian life is really worth living, with- 
out even having to begin preaching. 

Billy Graham once noted, "U what we do saves one soul, then 
it is worth it." Today's youth have won souls through their ef- 
forts, and it has been worth it. Yet, think what might have been 
accomplished if the opposition had been non-existent. Give us

Recently, one of the freshman senators raised the question 
in SA Senate of whether or not SMC had a school song. A school 
song, she felt, would help a lot in building school spirit. 

After a little bit of research, the ACCENT staff discovered a 
copy of the school song that once resounded through these halls. 
Look it over — it's printed below and to the right. It's quite obvious 

SMC has simply outgrown its school song. The song, as it 
now stands, sounds like it would be great for a small 400-student 
campus snuggling up on the hill, but it's not appropriate for a 
1400-sludent metropolis sprawled across □ whole valley. 

Should the song be replaced by something a little more rele- 
vant? If so, who should do it? The Senate discussed commission- 
ing a group of music majors to do the revising or rewriting. Is 
tho Senate authorized to appoint such a group, and would such 
a group be capable of writing a song worthy of our school? 

These are questions that SA and administrative leadership 
want answered. Let your senator know how you feel. Tell (he 
faculty what you want. Write to the ACCENT. It's up to you— 
the individual student. Do something!

the heads of practically 
even-one I've ever met. From 
the scientist to the wide-eyed 
coed everybody seems to have 
an incurable infatuation- with

The scientist apparently 
wishes to escape — as he sees it 
— either out of reality into the 
realm of abstractions and theo- 
retical statements or into a kind 
of reality much more depend-

his breakfast.

Doctors, again good ones, are

However, the world is full of

have lost this first flush of en-

they have chosen and either suf- 
fer — vocally protesting all the 
while — on. or change occupa- 
tions with the some alarming 
frequency with which Holly- 
wood stars and starlets change 
wives and husbands. And for 
about the same reason. 

Even college teachers seem to 
be burdened with this problem 
at about the same rate as the 
rest of the populace. There is, 
however, one alarming differ- 
ence between a disenchanted

to the degree and intensity that 
this is continually apparent to

Fortunately, the less and less

like a spectre haunting an old 
dusty corner — the incompetent 
teacher and his ghostly presence 
are still around.

Collegedale Celebrates First Year 



Sophomores Win College Bowl 



By Lynda Hughes 
While SMC students run to 
lasses, study for tests, and try 
o meet work appointments, 
iround them a tiny town is 
jrowing into a slightly bigger 
ity. 
Marking one year of progress 
off its calendar on Nov. 26, the 
Collegedale city government 
also completed goals it set for 
itself during the past year. 

You say you haven't seen 
anything happen? It is hard to 
see a boundary move. "Our 
recent annexation," says Mayor 
Fuller, "which was final on 
Nov. 15, added approximately 
25-30% more acreage to the 
town and added 35 families." 
You might call that external 
growth. 

The city has also grown in- 
ternally. On July 1, when the 
city received its first income 
(sales and gas tax refund from 
the state), services officially be- 
gan. "Since then," Fuller said, 
"we have spent approximately 
§3000 on road repairs and $1000 
| on signs." 

Flood possibilities (known by 
experience) are being banished 
by putting in fill dirt just north 
of the railroad crossing near 
Tucker Road. Fuller said the 
city will also be paving the sec- 
tion soon, and that the process 
will raise the road above the 
flood level. 

"Since Sept. 1," the mayor 
said, "the city has had the re- 
sponsibility of police protection 
Now we have two full-time of 
ficers and three part-time. 
Besides our original 1967 Plym- 



walking the yellow pages when 
desperately trying to contact the 
police. On-duty police can now 
be reached at 267-2854. When 
off duty, they can be contacted 
at their homes. 

"For the convenience of the 
people," said Fuller, "We now 
have our own city hall, located 
where the barber shop was in 
the shopping center. We are 
looking forward to eventually 
having one in connection with 
the present fire department 
building and location." 

Perhaps Collegedale is the lit- 



tle city that thinks it i 
city, for not only does it 
change roads, buildings, 
services, it has decided to 

"This is very indefini 
the mayor said, "but we hope to 
get the county and state to 
work with us in cutting down 
the mounlain and moving the 
road to change the city entrance 
before you get to McKee Baking 
Co. from Robinson's Corner." 

"Keep watching," 
Mayor Fuller, "or you may 
know your way around."

The agony of deciding who to 
invite to the reception is not 
half as bad as the suspense while 
waiting for an answer. You bite 
your fingernails to the quick and 
keep on biting. You begin com- 
piling a list of second choice 

Finally, you receive a reply, 
and your elation or despair is 
easy to see. Now that the mat- 
ter of an escort is settled, you 
begin on the next problem, 
"What shall I wear?" 

You visit all your friends who 
wear your size, trying on dress 
after dress. When you find one 
you like, you ask the owner, 
"Are you sure HE has never 
seen this dress?" 

During the intervening 
weeks, you may get better ac- 
quainted with your date at the 
lyceum and other activities. 

The day dawns bright and 
clear, with a tingle of excite- 
ment in the air. The hum of 
activity grows more and more 
frantic as the day wears on. 

You make certain to arrive a 
few minutes early for your ap- 
pointment at the beauty salon. 
There you find a long line of 
girls waiting before you. Your 
appointment is at 3 o'clock, but 
it is 4:15 before the stylist gets 
to you. As you leave at 5:30, 
you smile sympathetically at the 
long-haired lass still under the 
hair dryer. 

Arriving back at the dorm, 
you watch in astonishment as a 
friend sews the finishing touches 
on her dress as the clock nears 

When ready, you stand at the 
door of your room, listening as 
your friends are paged on the 
"all-call" intercom. You strain 
to listen, hoping you^thdn' 



No! There i

By Bill Cash 

A women's reception can be 
quite nerve-wra eking for the 
fellows, starting from the time 
when those invitations are 
handed out. When the fateful 
night arrives, and the goats and 
the girls deliver their want ads. 
the lobby gets more crowded 
than it does during a football 
game on TV, 

It's not fair, seeing that hand- 
some fellow down the hall get- 
ting eight or nine invites, while 
you don't even get one. Oh — 
hold it!— the last one (You 
knew it!) was for you. But, 
who is she? Better get out the 

Now things move a little 
more normally. However, those 
phone calls home seem to more 
urgently ask for money. "These 
receptions aren't free, Dad!" 

High-pressure sales talks are 
given each night, as fellows try 
to talk you into believing their 
flowers are better than the 
others, because they try harder. 
You finally decide to buy them 
downtown, instead, and find 
you save a couple of dollars. 

Then comes the big Sunday. 
After fooling around all day 
watching Joe Willie and the 
Jets, you find yourself taking a 
cold shower, shaving, -polishing 
your shoes, and doing every- 
thing else in less than fifteen 

As you walk over to the gym, 
you remind yourself that your 
date is -lefthanded, you need to 
seat her at the end of the table. 
After you sit down, you realize 
that she is seated at the end of 
the table, but facing the wrong 
way, and her left arm will be 
bumping your right arm during 
the meal. 

Well, everything comes off all 
right in the end, and all the 
misfortunes and trials endured 
over the last couple of weeks 
are forgotten as you kiss your 
girl goodnight.

year last Friday night. 

Tom Ipes, returned student 
missionary from CUC, gave a 
report of the work in Costa 
Rica, where he spent the last 
summer as an evangelist and 
ringing evangelist. 

Following Ipes' presentation. 
Harry Nelson, director of the 
SMC Student Missionary Pro- 
gram, gave a short summary of 
SMC's student missions activi- 
and announced this year's 
three school sponsored positions 
which then become open to ap- 
plicants. 

Two of these positions are for 

e summer and will include a 
$400 scholarship. One is for a 
female nurse to act in a super- 
visory capacity at the Hospital 
Advenlista de Nicaragua, La 
Trinidad, Esteli. Nicaragua. The 
other is for a student to assist 
with crafts and nature skills at 

V summer camps in Puerto 

The third position, for an en- 
e year, will be with the Far 
tstern Island Mission at Palau 
ission Academy, Koror, Palua, 
'estern Caroline Islands. The 
need there is for a teacher, male 



or female, to teach English.

Application for these positions 
are now available in the dormi- 
tories and the Public Relations 
office. The application period

The final decisions will be made 
by the Student Missionary 
Council on the basis of personal 

Besides the three sponsored 
positions, a number of SMC 
students are going to be doing 
self-supporting missionary work. 
Among these are John Taylor, 
going to Central America; 
Donna Taylor. Nan Williams, 
Pat Sampson, and Ron Nelson to 
Japan; Dwight Evans to Seoul, 
Korea; and Joyce Cook to Sai- 
gon. Vietnam. 

Nelson, himself a returned 
student missionary, report* that 
twelve SMC students have gone 
as student missionaries since the 
program began in 1967. 

According to Nelson, this is 
an expanding program in which 
there are opportunities for all. 
Anyone interested enough to 
contact Nelson may find him- 
self in a totally new environ- 
ment before the year is over.

(ecutive Board took several ar-

faculty wage increase, and pro- 
vision for expansion of student 
residence facilities.

professor of office administra- 

leave. He will spend the time 

visiting various manufacturing 
firms, hospitals, colleges and 
high schools to see what they 
offer for secretarial workers and 
students, and to determine their 

Dr. Wayne VandeVere, pro- 
fessor of business administra- 
tion, was also granted a leave 
which he will spend preparing 
next year's classes, and 
traveling. 

A routine wage increase was 
voted for faculty and staff in 



accordance with the continued 
rise in the cost of living. 

Plans were initiated to re- 
model the third floor of Jones 
Hall to accommodate an ap- 
proximate 56-person overflow 
from Talge Hall. 

Thatcher Hall is also inade- 
quate for residence needs; the 
Board voted to build a new 24- 
person dormitory next to the 
present brick apartments on 
Camp Raid. The new building 
will later be converted into 
apartments, if necessary. 

The Board also voted to begin 
plans to work with the City of 
Collegedale in improving the 
intersection of the roads Api-on 
Pike and Collegedale By-Pass 
near McKee Baking Co. 

The Board voted to support 
the General Conference Advent-

SMC Without the SA 



Southern efferent 



Commentary 



Last week, ih© Senate, in a closed meeting, discussed the 
future of the Student Association. As usual, the only future visible 
was actually quite invisible in a murky cloud of student apathy. 

To be frank, the SA has no future as long as the student body 
remains as apathetic as it has been thus far this year. Elsewhere 
on this page you will find an appeal by Colleen Smith, the SA 's 
vice-president. She, and the other SA officers would like to know 
what the students want from their SA and what can be done to 
make the SA more relevant to the individual student. 

If no answer is forthcoming, the possibility of no SA looms 
ahead. What would SMC be without the SA? We see no real 
outside difference. 

Presently, the SA is responsible for the recreational, intra- 
mural program, the social program, and the publication of the 
SOUTHERN MEMORIES and SOUTHERN ACCENT. Oh, yes. they 
DO do a little more, sometimes. 

So what happens when the SA ceases to exist? First of alL 
the intramural program would probably still continue under the 
s of the PE department. Saturday night programs would 
. possibly without the occasional "Candlelight." And 
the two publications would still be printed, at the school's ex- 
pense — and at no reduction of the general fee either, for the ad- 
ministration would need money from somewhere to finance what 
the SA had been financing. 

So what's to lose? Why not do away with the SA, and still 
keep the same privileges. You want to have your cake and eat 

But the students will lose. The only channel between stu- 
dents and administration would be those hand-picked students 
that serve on the administrative committees. We have them now, 
believe it or not! Are they really representing you? Do they 
know how you feel? 

Through the SA, at least there is a closer tie through your 
senator, who is supposed to visit his precinct periodically. 

If you want representation with the administration, there are 
two ways to go. You can keep on with the SA and the Senate, 
letting them be your advocate in student-faculty discussions. Or 
you can let a small handful of students serving on student-admin- 
istration committees speak for you. It's your choice. 

Q KCtNTs Mid-Course Assessment 

Semester break is almost here, and with i( we are reminded 
that the school year is half over. Only one more grueling semes- 
ter before summer, and vacation. Semester break is often used 
as a time for self-evaluation. How have we done during the 
> going to improve during the next 
e we going to make? 

We on the ACCENT staff are also evaluating our job during 
the first semester. What land of job have we done? How could 
we have done belter? What would we do differently were we to 
do it all over again? 

Those of us on the staff feel that we have done a fairly good 
job thus far this year. Not a perfect job, granted, but a fairly 
good job. We have achieved an objective that few staffs in 
SMC's past have reached— we have put out a real semi-monthly 
paper. Every two weeks for the past four-and-a-hali months, 
you have received a copy of the SOUTHERN ACCENT, except 
where vacations and exams interfered. This is the way it's sup- 
posed to be, and we are proud of it. 

We have tried to get a wide variety of news in our paper. 
Besides the usual publicity and news stories, human interest 
articles found their way into the paper. What with Speculum, 
cartoons, and letters, page two was kept from being as dry as it 
might have been. 

We've made mistakes, as much as we hate to admit it. We've 
pulled some real boners. But we're learning. It takes a while 
for a green staff to get used to deadlines, dummies, and outlines 
And that's what the ACCENT is here to do— train journalism stu- 
dents and others in newspaper production. And this is one class 
in which we don't receive credit. But it's been fun. 

We've still eight issues in which to improve some more.

Laying all our emotionalism 

aside for a moment, it does seem 
strange lhat so many fine Chris- 
tian people appear dctt-'niiinod 
lo judge the quality of another's 
heart, conscience, and— indeed 
— Christianity by the ounce or 
two of hair he wears on his face. 
Gentlemen, be seated. I can 
see all of you now, poised to 

side of this current controversy 
appeals to your imagination. To 
those of you who favor the pro 
side of the argument, I hasten 
to agree with you that many 
fine men wore beards — Christ, 
Lincoln, George Washington. 
and many, many others. Also, 
you have a right to wear a 
beard. Certainly you do. It is 
definitely your face and how 
you wish to appear is your own 
business. And a well-kept beard 
can be made much more than 
merely presentable. 

Also, back in the early 

of the Review and Herald 

ter was written to James White 
on the subject of beards which 
alleged that the shaving off of 
beards was immoral on the 
grounds that it betrayed signs of 
effeminacy, and an attempt to 
look like a woman. Tlu^c .ire 
not the exact words of the article 
but they convey the sense. It 
would almost go without saying 
that James White refused to 
take any stand at all on the sub- 
ject and merely answered the 
letter by stating that the only 
thing that should govern 
whether or not a man wore a 
beard was personal taste or 
preference. James White wore 

To those of you who stand 
firmly on the con side of this 
argument (or discussion), I can 
see only one knock which holds 
up ^insistently under all tests. 

Before I state this argument, 
let me say that I do realize that 
in some quarters beards have 
become a sign of rebellion, and 
to some eyes— therefor.— -all 
beards are rebellious. The argu- 
ment lose, we.ght if one looks at 
H m this light. If some youth 
grows a beard and commits a 
crime, dots that aut ( .n,, t t., a ily

White? All beards are not signs 
of subversiveness. When did 
we dec.de to judf-e the character 
of a man by his appearance in- 
ad of becoming personally 



his choice of hirsute 



However, there is one good 

argument for not wearing 
beards. If I were to grow a 
beard and thereby take advan- 
tage of this phobia against them 
which I have observed m many 
fine and consecrated Christians, 
I would be guilty of causing 
them to act in an un-Christlike 
manner by my unwise decision. 
Also, I would be guilty of prac- 
tically the same sin of imper- 
ceptiveness of which I accuse 
them. But, you cry in chorus, 
what about individuality, my 
rights, my sacred person? You 
miss the point. The other man's 
Christianity is far more import- 



rights.

Does the SA 
Have a Future? 

By Colleen Smith 
The SA Senate met in closed! 
session last week to discuss "Th 
Future of the SA," Some hav 
asked what was accomplished » 
that meeting and what | 
prompted it. 

Because the image of the SA I 
has not been all that could \ 
desired in the past, and because I 
of the unwillingness of the s 
dent body as a whole to partici-l 
pate in its functions or become | 
involved in its programs, 
questions have come to 
minds of the SA administration I 
concerning its role in o 
lege. We have felt a 1 
communications and as a result,! 
are not really sure whi 
expect of us as leaders of the | 
organization. 

Last week, your senators 
cussed what they thought 
the function of the SA. Manyl 
ideas, some of them conflicting,! 
were expressed. Some thought I 
of the SA as primarily provid- f 
ing social activities, such e 
nics, Saturday night entertain- 1 

banquets. Others looked t 
the voice of the student body to I 
the administration. And somi 
thought the SA should engage it 
services to the students simila: 
to the "panic desk" at registra-l 
tion and the book exchange. 

All recognized that we W( 
lacking in commuiiioitunis 
that you, the students, doi 
know about the things that i 
are doing. We realize also th 
1300 students do not have t 
combination of time and mutual I 
interests to make the SA the| 
"big thing" on our campus 
it is on the academy level. 

Our meeting was purpose-!

acter, was produced by local 



Ed. Note: During his visit to 
SMC last week, Congressman 
Bill Brock consented to an ex- 
clusive interview by Bob Cool- 

idge for the Southern Accent. 

Accent: Do you think there 
will still be an attempt to set up 
a volunteer army now that we 
have the lottery system? 

Brock: Yes, because the con- 
cept of an all-volunteer army 
really doesn't relate to the draft 
lottery. The draft lottery was 
an effort to give young people 
in this country a fair deal while 
we have the draft. This gives 
them a more honest program 
that limits the applicability of 
the draft to one year. But be- 
yond that, the concept of the 
volunteer army still need to be 
explored, and I personally hope 
that we continue to press for 
that. I am very much interested 
in it, and admittedly, we can't 
do it in the next year or two 
while we've got the draft pres- 
sure in Vietnam. But I think 
once we get beyond that point, 
it should open up some possi- 
bilities. 

Accent: Do you think the lot- 
tery will be redrawn? 

Brock: No, I don't really think 
so. That's just getting every- 
exterior, came across to the body upset again, and its creat- 
audience better than in any of ing more uncertainty, and the

Jim Jenks, in his role as the 
partridge in the pear tree at

other memorable highlight of 
the performance. The evening's

Gl's Vietnam: The Real Story 



I Reaching (or th. sky (and other things) or just plain watching the action 
on A court are (left to right]: Jim MacAlpine [34], Don Taylor (SO). 
Gene Tarr, Phil Garver (42). Ken DeFoor (35), Gene Conley (35). and 
Dennis Ward. Taylor's team presently leads the A League, with an 
undefeated record. 



Records Tumble in 
Basketball Openers 



"A" League lia^keili.ill began 
last week, as records fell. But 
the game that remained in the 
fan's mind didn't break any 
records. Taylor outlasted Cour- 
tois 64-55 Sunday night to re- 
main undefeated. Bolh teams 
had won their first game, and 
the winner of this game would 
have undisputed control of the 
league lead. 

So, after several days of 
sweating and gelling uj> for this 
first big game of the year, the 
game finally started. Taylor 
took a small lead after the open- 
ing tip-off, and then it hap- 
pened. Before the whole slate 
of Tennessee, and half of Geor- 
gia and Alabama, Donny Tay- 
lor made a lip-in. But when the 
•.rorcbuard failed (o change (he 
score, the referees stopped llie 
game and checked the affinal 
records, which had failed to 
mark down the basket. How- 
ever, official records are official, 
and the score stood as it had 
before (officially, that is). 

slowed, and Courlois' learn over- 
took and gained the lead. Yet, 
Taylor stayed close — within a 
few points. But Nelson Thomas' 
skillful faking and shooting 
under the basket took the toll of 
Taylor's big men. After half- 
time. Gene Conley, with four 
fouls, sat out for 12 minutes. 
However, even with the big boy 



With eight mil 
ing. Conley came back in. With- 
in three minutes Taylor moved 
from a four-point deficit to a 7- 
pnint lead, a margin he never 



lost.

League's first week, Courtois 
ran over DeFoor, 64-42; Taylor 
drowned Johnson, 100-56, with 
Conlev connecting for a record

second learn ever to break the 
100-point barrier here at SMC 
(Greene's 1969 team was the 
first). Alkins three back John- 
son 80-51, with Mickey Greene 
liroriking Conley's one-night-old 
record by scoring 40 points. 

"B" League 

Records also tumbled in "B" 
League action when Tlioresen'; 
team routed Edwards 104-82. 
The 104 points were tin- highest 
ever scored by any SMC team: 
the highest, of course, for a "B"

the third team ever to score over

a new record for most poinls 
scored in one game in any 
league (Greene-Taylor. 1969,

somewhere in southeast Asia —

"I Will Never Walk Alone' 
was the theme for the Student 
Week of Religious Emphasis, 
held this past week. Sermons 
were of a personal experience- 
testimony type and centered 
around our need for an individ- 
ual ^ relationship with Jesus 
Christ. Speakers and topics 
were as follows: 

Monday night — Lonny Lie- 
belt, "Jesus Christ— Who Needs 
Him?"; Tuesday chapel — Craig 
Meeker, "An Unprayed An- 
swer"; Tuesday night — Linda 
Arnold, "Live and Give"; Wed- 
nesday night — Ed Ross, "Let 
Go and Let God"; Thursday 
chapel — Gary Gryte, "A Key to 
Satan's Storehouse"; Thursday 
night — Perry Jennings (Oak- 
wood), "Personal Relationships 
with Christ"; Friday night- 
Elder John Loor, "The Choice 
of a Lifetime." 

It was hoped that the empha- 
sis on personal experience with 
Christ during the week, com- 
bined with the new format, 
would make the week a time of 
unmixed blessing for all. 

A -new rformat was set up for 
this year's Student Week of Re-

"The Longest Day, 
award-winning feature movie 
by Twentieth Century-Fox, was 
shown as a benefit project by 
the Student Association last 
Saturday evening. 

Playing in the film were John 
Wayne, Robert M i t c h u m , 
Henry Fonda, Richard Rurton, 
Curt Jurgens, Peter Lawford, 
and Edmond O'Brien. 

This film, adapted from the 
book written by Cornelius Ryan, 
received an academy award and 
other awards given by Parents' 
Magazine. The Film Daily, 
Film Estimate Board of Na- 
tional Organizations, and the 
National Board of Reviews. 

The story was a re-enactment 
of D-Day, from dawn to dusk — 
"composed of bravery, blood- 
shed, blunders, fateful decisions 
and unforseen tricks of fate," 
according to the film distributor. 
"This stirring record of the 
greatest military operations of 
all times," he continued, "the 
armada which turned the tide 
on Europe's western front, in- 
cludes the frustrating reverses 
of the Allies; the underestima- 
tion by the Nazis of the Allied 
force and strategy; and occa- 
sional funny incidents which 
eninh.iiize the horrible waste 
and futility of war." 



"The money from this benefit 
program will be used," said SA 
President Terence Futcher, "to 
help pay for the furnishings in 
our student lounge." 

This is one of several projects 
undertaken by the students to 
raise money for the $7,000 
expenditure. Other projects have 
included selling pizza, Christ- 
mas candles, stationery, and 
doughnuts; and doing personal 
soliciting.

Commentary 



O 



Of longest Days and Booed Referees 

A couple of incidents in the post lew days have led some to 
wonder if SMC students really know how to conduct themselves 
in public gatherings, 

First, during the showing of "The Longest Day" last weekend, 
iit was noted by several self-proclaimed celluloid connoisseurs 
that SMC students laughed at all the WTong places, and in gen- 
eral did everything wrong in viewing a film. 

In retrospect, we would have to agree with these critics. 
Certainly, war is no laughing matter, especially when it is not 
presented in a slap-stick Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy 
manner. There is nothing to cheer or jeer about when a para- 
trooper lands in a well, or when a body (German or otherwise) 
is riddled with machine gun slugs or shrapnel. Nor are the 
seemingly-comical actions of men under stress all that comical in 
reality. It makes one wonder if SMC students are really worthy 
of having such films shown to them. 

The other incident is a recurring one — every night at 5:30 in 
the gym. It doesn't take very long for someone who has watched 
very many sports events, televised or live, to realize that SMC 
students are lacking in the sports etiquette department. 

First of all, SMC fans must remember that the games here 
are just games, played for the pure enjoyment or the exercise 
and association. There is (or shouldn't be) no money involved, 
for the players aren't professionals, nor is there any gambling in- 
volved. And no one is trying to impress scouts or the front office 
with his spectacular play. A good share of the officials are stu- 
dents learning how to referee and keep score. 

Thus, it seems quite unexplicable why SMC fans enjoy boo- 
ing the players, referees or other fans. Other harassment is 
equally uncalled (or, too. A player fouling out deserves nothing 
but a round of applause, for most likely he has done his job well 
while in the game. 

A bad call by the referee is certainly not intentional, for the 
ref actually thought he saw a foul, or he wouldn't have blown 
his whistle. Those in the stands who constantly complain about 
the refereeing should be allowed the privilege (or is it ignominy?) 
of refereeing a game themselves. Likely they will return to the 
stands vowing never to say anything about bad refereeing again. 

Perhaps the best advice to those watching a game can be 
summed up in the words of the age-old Golden Rule — Do to others 
as you want them to do to you. It might work! 

And really, it might just be true that SMC students aren't 
quite as sophisticated and informed as they'd like to think they 
are. It just might be. 



17000 Question 



What has become of the Student Association's 57,000 student 
lounge project? 

Recent indications are that it has become a whopping EX- 
CEDRIN-type headache for both the SA leaders and the student 

Last fall, when the fund-raising project was announced, a 
majority of the student body seemed in favor of the idea. No 
doubt, this still holds true. Few will argue against the fact that 
if the new (but. temporary we might add) lounge is to be a stu- 
dent center, it should be paid for by the students. 

However, what is disturbing about this project is how little 
the student body knows about it. How much money has been 
raised to date? Is there a deadline for payment? If the money 
is not raised this year, can or will the project continue next year? 
These are legitimate questions which deserve prompt and ex- 
plicit answers by the Futcher administration. 

Although the difficulty of fund-raising, in any form, can be 
attested, there is still no reason why SA leaders should remain 
INCOMMUNICADO on the progress of the campaign thus far. If 
the campaign is doing poorly, let the students know about it. Per- 
haps that is all that is needed to rally the students around the 

It is simple for the ACCENT editors to sit happily perched on 
our editorial pedestals while gamely throwing verbal darts at the 
SA leaders for the mistakes they're making in this campaign, but 
it is not our intention to belabor the point at the expense of boring 
our readers. We've pointed out a problem. As usual, we have 
no sure or quick solution to offer. But we do believe that the 
undertaking of an "inform the students" project would be most 
expedient,

It's strange, the things I trip 
over hack in the dusty, cob- 
webby corners of my mind. 
Little fragmentary ideas that I 
promised myself I'd organize 
.mil iLmfv occasionally float up 
into the dim light of the attic 
and hang before me . , . dim, 
out-of-focus, and accusing. 

Take, for instance, this state- 
ment a man blinded in the 
Korean war casually handed me 
about four years ago. "A blind 
man doesn't see what you see 
when you close your eyes, that 
blackness speckled with little 
floating flashes of light and so 
forth. He doesn't see at all. He 
'sees' what you see out the back 
of your head. Nothing." 

Nothing. 

And this is the same kind of 
nothing that confronts me 
whenever I run full tilt into the 
inevitable, be it a research pa- 
per, project, assignment . . . 
anything I don't want to do but 
find absolutely unavoidable. 

I've discovered that I have an 
absolutely unbeatable formula 
for staying marvelously busy 



for whatever length of time I 
have allotted myself for accom- 
plishing these things and doing 
absolutely nothing. The hind 
part of the brain takes over and 
I suddenly wake up to find that 
I've cleaned the typewriter, 
dusted the desk, arranged all 
possible materials thereon in 
neat, micrometric little rows 
which then militantly peer up 
accusingly from the parade- 
ground of my desk. 

Still nothing, not even a faint 
glimmering of an idea, stirs 
feebly to life behind my eyes to 
save me from myself. There is 
no help for it. I'm absolutely go- 
ing to have to think my way out 
of the corner into which I've 
painted myself, and usually by 
one or two o'clock in the morn- 
ing I make it to the point where 
I should have been at nine 
o'clock the night before. 

For instance, I'm certain that 
I have something that I want to 
say in this article, and I'll get 
down to it right after I sharpen 
a big handful of pencils I just 
found in my right-hand desk

1950's a group of SMC students 
were interested in broad-

campus from a small broadcast- 
ing studio located in the Fine 
Arts Building to faculty homes, 
t was from this carrier-current 
tation that WSMC-FM was

In November of 1961 permis- 
sion was granted by Hie FCC for 
testing and on Dec. 8, 1961, 
WSMC-FM officially went on 
the air as a licensed 10-watt edu- 

Since that time events have 
been taking place in rapid suc- 
cession. By early 1962 and 1963 
the station was serving the com- 
munity 40 hours per week. Dur- 
ing the summer of 1963 the sta- 
tion facilities were remodeled 
and in the fall of that same year 
WSMC began rental of United 
Press News Service. Complete 
rewiring of the station broadcast 
studio and installation of hun- 
dreds of dollars worth of new 
equipment in December. 1963, 
took place. 

November and December. 

1964. saw the addition of a rec- 
ord library and office area for 
the station. 

The idea for a high powered 
station was conceived in the 
spring of 1965. In June of that 
same year fund raising was be- 
gun and in November the tower 
site, located atop White Oak 
Mountain, was donated by Dr. 
Dewitt Bowen, a Chattanooga 

Licensing for 80.000 watts 
was applied for from the FCC in 
February. 1966. and in June a 
complete remodeling of the 
studio and control room was 
begun and completed in Oc- 
tober. 

WSMC had an exciting year 
in 1967. In January a lower 
donated by Chattanooga's 
WRCB-TV was erected. Febru- 
ary saw the transmitter building 
completed. 

March 21, 1967 was, to date, 
the most important single day in 
the history of WSMC-FM. This 
was the day when WSMC began 
broadcasting at 80,000 watts. 

WSMC's Director of Broad- 
casting and faculty advisor since 

1965. James Hannum, says, 
"The 1960's saw its birth, con- 
ception, and growing pains 
while the 1970's should see it 
become a dynamic force for 
good in the community and we 
should see it fully accomplish 
the purposes for which it was 
founded."

"I've got a sister 21 years 

old," bragged a little girl taking 
pi, mo from Kathv Woods, a stu- 
dent teacher from SMC. 

"That's nice. I'm 21, too," 
noted Kathy. 

"Are you? What year were 

"1948." 

"Oh-h-h. Was that back dur-

This experience of Kathy's is 
only one of the n

student teachers run into dining

Each year during the second 
nine weeks of the fall semester, 
education majors are taken to 
elementary and high schools in 
the Chattanooga area. Here 
they take over (he class under

And how does one become a 
student teacher? During llieir

supervising teachers say this is 
hardly any problem at all. 

As the student teachers and 
supervising teachers are rushed 
to keep on schedule, chances to 
discuss minor adjustments be-

biggest problem. However, 
most teachers manage to take 
the student teacher aside and 
give him or her a few "words of 
wisdom." 

Student teachers have their 
work cut out for them. For

iTfc Taylor's collapse can bt 
\Sr buted to two major factors: 
turnovers and rebounds. Tay- 
lor's team has acquired the 
knack of passing the ball where 
no one is, and their two big 
men, Taylor and Conley, are not 
getting as many rebounds as 
their opponents are. 

Taylor's losses have been 
heartbreakers. Their first loss 
was to Johnson, 87 to 82. A 
rally could not quite bring Tay- 
lor to an even margin at the 
buzzer, as Bo and Lauren Far- 
dulis and Ron Johnson kept out 
of reach by fanlastic shooting. 

Atkins beat Taylor 76-72 in 
four overtime periods. Taylor 
was just able to catch Atkins in 
regulation time, and matched 
them in the first overtime pe- 
riod. With four seconds left in 
the second overtime, Taylor 
brought the ball in at midcourt 
after a time out Dean Bolimer 
lobbed a high pass to no one in 
general. Gene Conley shot and 
missed, and Donny Taylor got 
the rebound and promptly sunk 
a jump shot in the middle of 
traffic in the key. Both teams 
matched free throws in the third 
period, as Atkins stalled the ball, 
but then, after Gryte and Taylor 
fouled out, Atkins opened up a

Kenneth Spears, manager of 
the college and director of stu-

MV Chooses Four to be 
Student Missionaries 



By Lynda Hughes 
Pulling teeth, dressing croco-

-many new experiences face 
SMC's four new MV-sponsored 
student missionaries. 

Maybe the students don't 
realize they are signing up for 
these types of activities, but just 
ask SMC's four past MV-sup- 
ported missionaries: Les Weaver 
{Panama, 1967); Carolyn Pet- 
tengill (Bolivia, 1968); Harry 
Nelson (Sarawak (1968); and 
Doug Foley (Honduras, 1969). 
Miss Carol Smart, junior ele- 
mentary education major, Cand- 
ler, N.C., will spend the summer 
at Elias Burgos Camp, Puerto 
Rico, teaching crafts and "help- 
ing to make leaders of the chil- 
dren," according to Nelson, di- 
of the MV student mis- 
sionary program. 

Miss Marga Martin, junior 
nursing student, Avon Park, 
Fla., will spend the summer as 
a nurse at Hospital Adventista 
De Nicaragua, La Trinidad,

pointee and only boy selected 
this year is Mike Foxworthy, 
junior English major, Braden-

at the English Language School, 
Osaka, Japan. 



These four students were 
selected from approximately 30 
who applied. Qualifications 
considered in their selection, 
cording to Nelson, included 
perience they have had in r 
sion life, foreign language, firs 
aid, photography (to share mis 
sion work with other students 
after their return), and work. 

Also considered were their

nth ■ 



We have finally decided t . 
those trying to find out exactly what is wrong with the Student 
Association. And after being witness to last week's Senate 
meetings, we feel that we have the diagnosis to the SA's disease. 
The problem with the SA resides in its Senate, and in the Sena- 

Walching a Senate meeting in progress is funnier than 
watching a Bob Hope movie, or something like that. In fact, the 
ACCENT highly recommends it for anyone who wants to get in 
an evening of belly laughs. For after a full semester of operation, 
the Senate still does not know how to properly conduct its busi- 
ness. Granted that Robert's Rules of Order are complicated, but 
senators should be acquainted with some of the basic rules after 
several meetings. Incidentally, senators, one does not "make a 
motion," he "moves." Remember that next meeting, please. 

The leadership of the Senate would also do well to review 
their handbooks on parliamentary procedure. It might cut down 
on theBe embarrassing points of order by observers. 

The entire senate has yet to meet since they were elected. 
Attendance at Senate meetings is so poor that rarely is there 
more than just a bare quorum present, if that much. 

The administration of our school acknowledges that it takes 
freshmen a while to get adjusted to college life. This is why they 
have regulations prohibiting certain things, like cars, for the fresh- 
men. Perhaps a similar rule barring freshmen from the Senate 
would liven things up there. Of the 22 present senators, 9 are 
freshmen, 7 are sophomores (2 are new to SMC this year), 3 are 
juniors, and 4 are seniors. Freshmen have no real idea of what 
the real issues on campus are until at least a semester or more is 
over. Perhaps this large group in the Senate who are learning 
all about college, and don't have much time for extra-curricular 
activities if they hope to maintain their GPA's, explains why there 
is a noticed lack of initiative in this year's senate. Most of what 
the senate has passed this year has been spoon-fed them, in 
one way or another, by President Futcher, Vice-President Smith, 
or the cabinet. 

Now the Senate has embarked on a constitution rewriting 
excursion. Perhaps if they would ask the judiciary to review 
present legal problems, they would not need to write a new con- 
stitution to clarify these questions. What is the judiciary for, 



of embarrassment.

gets to work, it will cease being the cancerous growth in the SA, 
and be the miracle cure that the SA so badly needs.

Dr. Watrous: Students' Friend 



By Lynda Hughes 
SMC's flag in the administra- 
tion building mall was lowered 
to half-mast Feb. 5. After 22 
years of service at SMC, Dr. 
Everett Watrous, professor of 
history, died at Chattanooga's 
Diagnostic Center after a mas- 
sive heart attack. 

Students are familiar with the 
memory of the Dr. Watrous of 
the 1960's — dry wit, personal 
interest in students, and his 
wise, fatherly counsel. Students 
were amazed that he remem- 
bered them so well, calling them 
by their first names, recalling 
their problems, and helping 
them to solutions. 

His counseling, leaching, and 
association with students and 
faculty were < (implelelv devoid 
of self. He thought, talked, and 
acted in terms of others, par- 
ticularly students and their 

That was the Dr. Watrous of 
"now," but few students know 
anything about the Dr. Wat- 
rous of "then." Dr. Watrous 
was born in Middletown, Con- 
necticut on May 21, 1905. As 
he grew to high school age, he 



became interested in sports. 

At this time, however, his 
mother became a Seventh-day 
Adventist, and eventually he 
was persuaded to attend At- 
lantic Union College. He earned 
his way through college and re- 
ceived a bachelor of religious 
education degree in 1928. Later 
he returned and completed re- 
quirements for a bachelor of 
arts degree. 

During the school year of 
1928-29, Dr. Watrous taught 
English at Pine Tree Academy, 
Auburn, Maine. On August 14, 
1929. he was united in marriage 
with Myrtle Adelene Brown at 
Bridgeport, Conn. 

From 1930 to 1945 the Wat- 
rouses were employed by the 
Office of Indian Affairs, U. S. 
Dept. of Interior, and taught 
Eskimo, Aleut, and Indian chil- 

Their only son. Arthur Leroy. 
was born in 1930 as the first 
while child born north of the 
Arctic Circle in U. S. territory. 

Behind Dr. Watrous' serene 
face in the classroom was stored 
a collection of 
few students knew 




While taking their copies of a 
marriage and the family test 
from the top of a stack, how 
many students would imagine 
that Dr. Watrous was once the 
superintendent of a reindeer 
herd, attorney for the Alaskan 
and Indian natives, operated a 
health clinic, superintended the 
building of a dam, or established 
an Indian reservation? 

After teaching at Auburn 
Academy, Auburn, Washing- 
ton, for two years. Dr. Watrous 
came to SMC as dean of men in 
1948. In 1959 he was appointed 
chairman of the social science 
division, and in 1967 he became 
director of guidance and coun- 
seling, also continuing to teach 

Dr. Watrous earned his mas- 
ter of arts degree from the Uni- 
versity of Chicago in 1941, and 
his doctor's degree from the 
University of Tennessee in 
1954. 

Elder John Loor, pastor of the 
Collegedale Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist Church officiated at the 
funeral on Feb. 9. 

A memorial fund for deserv- 
ing students has been de-i^n.ited 
in Dr. Watrous' name. The fund 
is to be supported by family and 
friends. 

In honor of this teacher, 
friend, and counselor, a certifi- 
cate and pin were presented to 
Mrs. Watrous at a faculty.

Robertson, a distinguished 
American Pianist, whom it is

that, "SDA servicemen, living 
and dead, have helped propel 
this country to new and greater 
heights throughout the world by 
their boldness, vigor, and stead- 
fast endurance in trial. We feel 
that this program will give new 
insights into what SDA service- 
men are really doing for God 
and country. Today we must

reason that we pay tribute to

Commentary 






let's Have a Georgia-Cumberland Day 

Georgia-Cumberland Conference students are wondering 
why they haven't had any Georgia-Cumberland Conierence Day, 
as have the Carolina, Alabama-Mississippi, and Florida students, 
and had the opportunity of meeting and greeting their officials. 

Where are the Georgia-Cumberland Conference officials? 
Do they already know all their student representatives? Maybe 
they already have enough teachers, pastors, and secretaries and 
don't have to worry about getting acquainted with upcoming 
personnel. 

It seems as if other conferences' officials don't mind the home 
conferences' lack of get-togethers, however. The "foreigners" 
plan free buffet suppere, picture-taking sessions, and pep-talking 
efforts with obvious enjoyment, eliciting promises of future em- 
ployment from any student they can — even those of Georgia- 
Cumberland. 

Meanwhile, Georgia-Cumberland students get out their 
school calendars and run their fingers through the weeks — March, 
ApriL May. No get-together listed! Well, they decide, our Geor- 
gia-Cumberland Conference Day is probably just not listed. 

They try to forget about all the persuasive men from Caro- 
lina, Florida, and other conferences who say. "Come to our con- 
ference when you graduate," remembering that somewhere there 
are Georgia-Cumberland Conference men who might want them 
to stay in this conference, and who might c 
acquainted!

Self analysis can be a danger-

say, and say it loudly. This at- 
titude is one of constant seeking 
for a chance to suppress or beat 
down anything that crosses their 
paths, especially the SA. 

I am speaking, specifically, of 
some of those who oppose the 
new constitution on the ground; 
that it allows too much freedom 
of action. Lack of titis freedom 
is probably the most trouble- 
some problem of this year's ad- 
ministration and those in years 
past. Too much time is taken 
hunting through a 24-page cc 
stitution to make sure no o 
will cry, "Unconstitutional!" 

This is a terrific handicap, 
anyone who has had to wo 
under it will tell you. T 
leaders' time should lie spent 
planning and promoting actr 
ties in accordance with a few 
basic guidelines rather than 
constantly haggling with trou-

could very easily be replaced 
with a spirit of support, if only 
people were willing to do it. If

Country Cottage 



Professor's Spare Time Project 






By Lynda Hughes 

Behind the instructor'! 
lands a small, enthusiastic, 
niddle-aged man with very 
short hair, looking through 
; with exceptionally per- 
ceptive eyes. 

Dr. Ray Hefferlin, professor 
of physics, spends his school 
with relativity, optics, 
spectroscopes, refraction of light, 
properties of gases, and wishing 
itudents would study harder. 

What does an intellectual 
who has been at SMC 15 years 
do with his "spare" time? 
"Come to my house — I'll show 
you," says Dr. Hefferlin, flash- 
ing an ear-to-ear type smile. 

Outside of the science build- 
ing stands his car — a blue and 
white 1956 Chevrolet station 
wagon boasting 152,000 miles. 
"This car may look interesting," 
says Dr. Hefferlin, "but wait 
until you see my house!" 

He explained that the house 
he and his wife and three 
daughters {aged 11, 9, 2) live 
in is something like a home- 
stead. They bought it in Feb- 
ruary of 1966 when it had been 
deserted five years before, and 
vandalized two years before. 

"When my wife first saw this 
place," Dr. Hefferlin continues, 
"she fell in love with it." He 
turned the car onto a mud, 
gravel, and leaves jeep road and 
bounced through mudholes and 



"It really means something to 
come home from school and 
walk on this road," he says. "I 
really feel close to God here." 

Dr. Hefferlin feels that God 
played a definite part in their 
move to this 80-acre wooded 
land from their ten-room house 
with swimming | inn l on Prospect 
Church Rd. "Our children are 
at the age where they like to 
walk in the woods," he said. 
"The area where we used to live 
is getting too 'built up,' " 

Dr. Hefferlin and his wife, 
Inelda, were not satisfied with a 
five-years' deserted, 
vandalized house 
They repaired and redecorated 
the house, leaving its distinct 
features such as a wood stove 
and 60-foot well. "We want it 
to give the message, 'I'm com- 
fortable but not plush.' " 

This "not plush" idea is an- 
other of the reasons the Hrl'lVr- 









the wildei 



At i 



ness. "We are trying to fight 
the American concept of middle- 
class wealth and status. Where 
we are we occasionally have to 
fight for water, road use, and 
freedom from weeds. We don't 
sit around wondering what to 
buy next for ourselves." 

Two other reasons they 
moved were the attitudes of 
Apison residents toward Sev- 
enth-day Adventists, and the 
tendency of Collegedale SDA's 
toward "provincialism." 

Dr. Hefferlin feels that 
through community activities 



Lake 

idents and not huddle 
tight little group of church peo- 
ple who work together, play to- 
gether, and go out and do mis- 
sionary work together. They 
want their children to grow up 
knowing there are other people 
in the world besides those they 
go to church with. 

Dr. Hefferlin says that he was 
surprised at his wife's hidden 
pioneer abilities — canning jar 
after jar of food, clearing 
ground, and just making the 
wilderness look homey. 

Ironically, he adds that he has 
learned some things he never 
expected to — doctoring a dog 
and horse, running a chain saw, 
and putting in a pump. 

What amazes the Hefferlins 
is that they now have what 
many S50,000-a-year income 
families long for — a little house 
in the peace and quiet of nature. 
"Yet," he says, "my salary is 
certainly not'remarkable. God 
has been good to us." 




Black's "King Speech' Caps 
Oakwood's Recent Program 





By Joe Priest 

Just a few nights ago here at 
SMC, Oakwood College pre- 
sented a program called "Dark 
Flowers" sponsored by the Oak-

O 



Will the Neat Constitution Work? 

Now that the new constitution is in effect, we will actually 
see if it will help matters any. The question of whether or not the 
constitution would pass never really bothered us, for once it had 
Senate approval, most opposition was satisfied. What we ques- 
tion, however, is whether or not the new constitution will work. 

SA administrations in the past have delighted in blaming 
the old constitutional monstrosity (6 pages, plus by-laws) for 
all the ills of the SA. Its strict legal rules made it hard for anyone 
to step out of line without stepping out from under the constitu- 
tion. Will future administrations blame the new constitution for 
their ills, too? And if so, will it be worthwhile getting a new 
constitution ii it will still cause trouble? 

The new constitution places a great deal of power in the 
Senate, as they are the ones who are to interpret the constitution, 
and adopt a set of guidelines every year. Will the Senate, under 
the new constitution, have enough backbone and muscle to sup- 
port this heavier load? Senates in the past haven't distinguished 
themselves with their great strength in carrying the load of the 
SA. How about future Senates? 

Granted that the Senate will be changed by having fewer 
members, elected at-large the spring before their term the next 
year. This will mean, supposedly, that it wifl take someone quite 
well-known to win a seal, and that freshmen will be virtually non- 
existent in the new Senate. Perhaps this is one of the greatest 

A new committee has been added under the new constitution 
— student services. It's about time that SA administrations real- 
ized that the object of the SA was not to sponsor a debating so- 
ciety every two weeks in Senate, but rather, to provide student 
services for the student. In the past, student services, when there 
were any, were left to the discretion of the executive members to 
effect. And as they already had their tasks outlined, supposedly, 
they hardly had time to further burden themselves. Under the 
new constitution, these little, but important, tasks are the sole 
responsibility of a committee, so maybe things will get done. This 
could be another great innovation. 

But one thing hasn't been changed by the new constitution. 
This is the matter of personnel. No SA can hope to accomplish 
anything if it does not have effective leadership. And it must 
have this leadership from the top to the bottom. It's going to take 
students who are willing to sacrifice — sacrifice time, money, and 
perhaps even grades to better the atmosphere here on our cam- 
pus. It's going to take students who are civic-minded — those who 
will be willing to help others. It's going to take students who are 
unselfish — those who are working not for personal glory, but to 
help others. 

Election time is almost here. Filing week has been an- 
nounced, and is now in progress. All the offices are up for grabs. 
Think twice before refusing to ran. 

The SA Is Viable 

It's well-known that the student body of SMC is capable of 
standing back and criticizing, under the name of constructiveness, 
the SA administration and all its struggles for progress. 

Collectively we criticize the SA. So, politely the officials hold 
an assembly meeting to give us a chance to take part, to make 
suggestions, to HELP! to SUPPORT! So what do the students do? 
We glance at our watches every five minutes, hoping to get out 
early so we can hurry away and do the nothing we had planned 
to do during the assembly hour anyway. 

11 the SA assembly doesn't move according to the dictates of 
impatient "supporters," some raucous voice hollers out from the 
back of the auditorium and interrupts, *1 move that we AD 
IOUHN!" It matters not whether an officer was in the middle of 
a sentence. 
\ We hack away at the SA, pick at the officers, laugh at their 

'senate meetings, veto their ideas for progress—then sit back and 
what-a-pity the fact that no one wants to run for office. Iron- 
ically, the front of the last Accent said, "Elections are coming! 

Plan now to run." That is what most everyone is doing, too 

running. Would YOU be an officer of our organization which 
w© are giving such a hard time? 

) know how to criticize, but do w© know how to

WHAT WE THMtABOOT 
RUrJWitfs TWESA , , , 





Of all the cliches that I stum- 
ble over in day to day living, 
the one which I detest above all 
others is "Experience is the best 
teacher." Oddly enough. I've 
discovered that experience can 
totally unfit one for ever learn- 
ing anything. Drive your car 
into a tree and kill yourself and 
what have you learned? It was 
a wild experience, dying, but 
then they carry you out feet 
first to slow music and now you 
know nothing at all. Blow your 
mind on LSD and you may un- 
fit yourself for making any ra- 
tional decisions for the next six 
months. Break a leg and de- 
stroy — for yourself — the more 
profitable and normal experi- 
ences of sports, walking, run- 
ning, and so forth. Some ex- 
periences can be good teachers, 
but most experience is more 
likely to damage than to im- 

If experience were really the 
best teacher, this school would 
close up and throw us all back 
onto the streets. Education from 



Reade 



bunks and teacher;;, panic nlarly 
Christian ones, is designed to 
keep us from having too many 
bad experiences. This school is 
preventive medicine for the 
soul -destroying, body-breaking, 
and mind-bending we will in- 
evitably encounter elsewhere. 

All of this brings us to a date. 
April the first. Try as I may, 
I have never encountered before 
in my life any institution that 
actually set a date when "good 
grooming" and "proper dress 
standards" were to go into ef- 
fect. It sounds like a certain 
mythical king's commands to 
the tide. 

Every student at this college 
is acquainted with the grooming 
and dress principles and stand- 
ards of SMC. Each of us knows 
the school regulations regarding 
hair length and beards for men, 
and skirt lengths for women. 
None of us are entitled 
ignorance of the law. 

Granted, many of 
agree severely with i 
these rules as they no 






For. 



But this disagreement does not 
allow us to disregard these rules 
while they are still in effect 
And most of us do pay proper 
respect to these guidelines. I do 
not think that any faculty mem- 
ber honestly believes that a 
sizable number of SMC students 
are involved or affected by this 
"new" hardrock deadline. Nor 
does the aware student believe 
that his single, individual opin- 
ion — considered or otherwise — 
is an actuality superior to the 
collective judgment of involved 
teachers. Teachers who have 
made more than an honest ef- 
fort to understand the problem 
and who have personally gone 
where the problems are and 
tried to solve them. 

To the teachers who intend to 
eradicate all above - the - knee 
hemlines, who feel a fervent 
zeal to wipe out all longer-than- 
average sideburns, and stand 
forever opposed to beards at any 
time for any reason I give the 
same advice I would to a stu- 
dent who intends to have his 
own ill-advised way no matter 
what the counsel of his friends. 
This incredible deadline goes 
into effect on the first of April.

he church. 

Accent: There's been much 
talk recently about Ihe youth's 
ct on our society. Is Faith 
for Today doing anything to 
tailor its programs to ihe youth? 
Fagal: We definitely are try- 
ng to be youth-oriented, and we 
take up youth problems. The 
ram we filmed last week 
a hippie in it. We have 
been facing sumo almost dangor- 
problems that we haven't 
thought of touching in the past. 
We had a program on the prob- 
lems of an un-wed mother not 
long ago. We're facing a 
of these very nit I v -gritty 
ihmgs, and trying to put them 
the program. These are 
youth -oriented. 

Accent: How many of your 
cader-retum mail is from those 
under 25? 

Fagal: We found that three 
fourlhs of the students that take 
Bible Course are between 
the ages of 16 and 30, so we 
feel that we are reaching the 

Accent: How are youtii af- 
fecting the SDA Church as a 
whole? 

Fagal: I believe that we are 

becoming more youth-oriented, 
'ndicated by youth center- 
's and many youth meet- 
. And this is healthy. We 

have to save our youth, or the 

church is lost entirely. 




l is the church 
doing to adapt to these times? 

Fagal: The world is changing. 
It's a different world today than 
the world in which I was born, 
that's for sure. And I see it 
changing. Sometimes I hardly 
understand what's happening, it 
takes a while for me to compre- 
hend what's going on. Now, if 
we don't change our methods 
and approach, we're dead. We'll 
lose contact with people. Take 
for instance Faith for Today, 
id the things we did when we 



first i 



If i 



doing these things today, we 
wouldn't be successful at all. 
We've had to change constantly. 
We'll have to always be this 
way. Not that we're giving up 
any portion of the message, Cod 
forbid, but we're changing in 
order to reach people where they 
are, and reaching them as they 
think and where they think, and 



showing them tha t we have 
wmclhing that will meet their 
present needs at the present 
hour. We must never stand 
still. 

Accent: How does a preacher 
feel about the Week of Prayer? 

Fagal: I am very conscious 
of the fact that there are stu- 
dents in our schools that don't 
have a great interest in religious 
matters, and I try to gear my 
message to them. The others 
we already have, but these, who 
treat the whole thing in 'a blase 
way, we don't have. And they 
are the ones I'd like to get. Jesus 
Christ does have something lo 
offer to them today. In all my 
messages, you will notice that 
I'm not trying to condemn, try- 
ing to depress. Sin in a person's 
conscience is pretty much of a 
condemnation. And I'm trying 
always to encourage "You don't 
have to give up." I'm trying to 
get them to see that they can 
be a Christian, that life does 
have something to offer. We try 
to crystalize their thinking a 
little bit. To have a meeting 
and not let a person have a 
chance to make some kind of 
decision to give their hearts 
would be tragic. 

Accent: What do you offer to 
the student that is already living 
a Christian life? 

Fagal: We want to strengthen 
his resolve. We want to make 
him more certain that he is 
right in what he decided. This

Cheryl's 450-word "Insight —

simple dreams of Hemingway's 
"The Old Man and the Sea" 
character with the youth of to-

Not only has Cheryl had

scientists are able to learn much 
about relativity through studies 
of the phenomenon whereby

the sun. This "bend" is noticed 
when star photographs taken

"As the moon's shadow moves

at 2 or 3 times the speed of 
sound scientists are listening to

Commentary 



Welcome to SMC, seniors. You've come a long way, to say 
the least. It wasn't so very long ago that grade school was the 
order of the day. Then came academy, and the somewhat 
frightening but exhilarating thought that you WERE growing up. 
And now, in just a short month or so, you will be leaving those 
halls for the last time. 

Ahead, (or most of you, lies college. We, like everyone else 
here, hope that you will make SMC your home for the next four 
years. Like us, you will probably never be sorry that you did 
so, either. 

College is something that you have never been subjected to 
before. College is different. These few days that you spend 
here now will not totally initiate you into college life. In fact, 
you will find next year that it may take the full year to adjust to 



this ii 



of living.

A socializing, whether

such un-earthly hours 



pus, college means many things, 
had to before. It means hours 
ssions in the dorm, or with the

clock Sunday morning or seven 
o'clock Wednesday night. But college also means Sunday after- 
noons in the gym, playing four-on-four half-court basketball. And 
college may mean a stroll, hand-in-hand, through the student 

You will find that college means different things to different 
people. And it has to be that way when there are 1300 attending 
one school. No longer can an administration, student or other- 
wise, plan activities for everyone at once. And no longer can one 
participate in everything that happens. College is the place where 
one does his own thing — and tries to do it well. 

In closing, we hope that you truly enjoy your stay here at 
SMC during College Days. And we hope that you will make 
definite plans to attend SMC next year, and through the ensuing 
years. As a parting note, we'd like to add: "Go to the college of 
your choice, as long as it's SMC!" 



looking Into Insight 

Making its debut May 5 is INSIGHT, a magazine s 
fresh and candid approach by church leaders to ■ 
with the youth of the church between the ages of 17 and 22, We 
look forward with anticipation to the arrival of this new publica- 
tion, but we no less have many questions about it. 

Will INSIGHT succeed where its predecessor, THE YOUTH'S 
INSTRUCTOR, failed in attracting response and support of 
"young" people? Will the magazine be able to keep its seem- 
ingly inane weekly pace and stilt maintain a high-quality and 
thought-provoking presentation? Are there enough trained and 
talented writers, sensitive to needs and tastes of today's Christian 
youth and daring enough to venture into and discuss the here- 
tofore avoided questions and issues of our time, to stock such a 
magazine with the phenomenal number of manuscripts it needs? 
No doubt, we could continue with such probes, and no doubt 
wo will at a later time. But for now the ACCENT, hopefully find- 
ing ourselves by others concerned about this new magazine and, 
generally speaking, all attempts of the church to communicate 
with its youth, will set its questions {and its ever-present doubts) 
aside for a period of simple observation. To our readers, we 
propose the same. 
\ If you do not receive a copy of INSIGHT'S first edition, find 

a copy somewhere and read it, Find out for yourself whether 
or not it is everything you had hoped or had been told it would 
be. Don't accept the magazine passively, but examine its pages 
carelully, and if you find something that appeals to your tastes, 
he editors expressing your approval, and 
-ething that you differ with, be prompt to 
' by letter or even an article, logically 






and factually presented. 

Nothing we can say 

failure o! INSIGHT, but w 

this publication's fate.

H" IT? 



As one whose ear is more oi- 
lers sensitive to such things I 
have noticed that the so-called 
"southern" accent, which should 
predominate conversation here 
a! SMC seems most conspicuous 
by its absence. Its obvious ab- 

1've been conducting a per- 
sonal poll around campus. It 
goes something like this: 

"Say, you don't sound like 
you're from the south?" 

"I'm not. I'm from Cali- 
fornia. My folks live only a 
mile or so from PUC." 

Or, the conversation may take 



this 






■ you here last : 



"Nope. Transferred from 
AU." 

A little more research began 
to indicate that around one out 
of every three students did not 
reside in the Southern Union. 
Himri. s,nd I to myself . . . in- 
teresting. 

Some nosing around the cam- 
pus grapevine indicated that not 
only was it interesting, but 
several of our other unions were 
more than just mildly perturbed 
over the problem. Rumor even 
has it that one union refused to 
permit one of its academies to 
••end ,i bus- load ,-,f seniors to the 



annual SMC college days pro- 
gram. Again said I to myself. 
AHA! Interesting. Velly In- 
telestink. 

How come? The Southern 
Union is hardly the richest of 
the continental unions. SMC is 
not the largest and best equipped 
college. And — while its campus 
is beautiful — other campuses are 
also beautiful and can beat Ten- 
nessee all hollow for climate. 

Other colleges have graduate 
degree programs and poor little 
SMC boasts none. Oho .... said 
I, the plot sickens. 

I wonder why, I wonder why 
ah 

And suddenly my scizo- 
phreniz resolved itself as I an- 
swered myself in this fashion: 

"I dunno why all these other 
idiots are here, but I do know 
why I am. I prefer their com- 
pany and after seeing and com- 
paring, I'd rather be here than 
any other place. Rational about 
this thing I am not. I like it 
better here." 

Yeah, I like it better here be- 
cause there is something about 
SMC 

.... something indefinable, 
something one can only feel, 
something that — whatever it is 
— somebody else feels too.

More than 500 high school 
seniors representing academies 
and public schools from five

ern SDA academies to give the 
seniors a glimpse of college life 
and inform them of educational, 
social and spiritual opportuni- 
ties available to them at SMC. 
Also expected are approximately 
!00 public high school seniors. 

In connection with the two- 
day activities, SMC's Student 
Association presented a special 
Variety Talent Hour Sunday 
evening for the guests in the 
Physical Education Center. Fea- 
tured wen* the winners from the 
annual SA-sponsored Student 
Amateur Hour held on the pre- 
vious night.

treasurer; and Larry Willen- 
borg, parliamentarian. 

Mr. and Mrs. Ward Shaw

SMC's Wright Hall Art Exhibits 
Feature Photography in March 



"On the Indian Road,' 
pholo display by Dr. M. D. 
C(ini|)hi.-ll, professor of chemis- 
try at Southern Missionary Col- 
lege, was on exhibit at the col- 
lege on the second floor of the 
adniinisli-aticiri building, Wright 
Hall, through March. 

Dr. Campbell's photos de- 
picted various aspects of the 
lives of Poona, India, residents 
such as leprosy victims. Indian 
jewelry, dress, and children. 

He spent six years (1963-68) 
at Spicer Memorial College, 
Poona, as chairman of the 

structor in the high school chem- 
istry department. During this 
time— abut four years ago — his 
interest in photography was 
aroused through photographic 
work with die school's first 
yearbook. 

Some of the Indian students 
at the college also became in- 
terested in photographic arts 
through working with Dr. 
Campbell. 

Dr. Campbell especially likes 
to photograph faces, hands, and 



feet because they "tell the whole 
story of the person." In this 
exhibit — the first time it has 
1"vn displayed — the stories be- 
hind the Indians' pictured are 
evident. 

Although these 20 pictures 
are in black and white. Dr. 
Campbell also does color slides. 
He uses a Japanese Mamiya C-3 
twin lens reflex camera. 

Mrs. Eleanor Jackson, SMC's 
asst. professor of art, is respon- 
-iblr- for art displays in Wright 
Hall, changing them at least 
once each month. She says this 
photo exhibit is one of the two 
or three photographic or com- 
mercial art displays the art de- 
partment scheduled each year. 

Also being shown with Dr. 
1 ■anipbell's pictures are two 
photo essays created by students 
in a first semester photography 
in communications class. 

"Stopping by Woods on a 
Snowy Day" by Carl Schneider, 
a junior communications major, 
is a take-off on Robert Frost's 
poem. "Stopping by the Woods 
on a Snowy Evening" and shows

poem by the same title and tells

Behind the all-around play of 
Mickey Greene, Atkins breezed 
to an easy 83-73 victory over the 
All-Stars. But it took more than 
just Greene's play to put it all 
together for the grey bombers, 
who were the "A" League 
champs. Ken DeFoor, substi- 
tuting for absent Dean Lovejoy, 
played perhaps his best game 
this year, feeding the ball to 
Greene, and accounting for 16 
points himself. 

Solid performances by Bob 
Swofford and Allen Chastain 
helped AtJtins on his way to 
victory, also. 

What hurt the All-Stars 
probably the most was the con- 
spicuous absence of the Fardulis 
brothers, Lauren and Beau, who 
were named to the team, but 
were unable to play, as was also 
the case with All-Star Gene 
Tarr. So it was only a six -man 
team that showed up to do bat- 
tle with Atkins, 

The Stars were paced by 
Heinz Wiegand's 23 points, and 
Don Taylor's 1 7 rebounds. But 
Greene was the night's top 
scorer, swishing the hoop for a 
total of 36 points, only four 
points away from the SMC scor-

Dorm Takes Third 

The Dormitory team, getting 
even playing from all its play- 
ers, overcame a determined Vil- 
lage team, featuring Lauren 
Fardulis' scoring machine, in 
the last of the Dorm-Village 
fMiiu>. this year by a score of 
88-79. 

Fardulis, playing his last of- 
ficial basketball game here at 
SMC before graduating this 
spring, scored a total of 38 points 
during the game, thus account- 
ing for almost half the points 
scored by the village. But his 
individual performance couldn't 
erase the achievements of the 
Dorm players, who had all five 
starters in double figures. 

Mickey Greene, SMC's MVP, 
led the Dorm scoring with 20 
points, followed by Gene Conley 



Dorm-Village Tilt 

and Beau Fardulis, who each 
scored 15 points. 

The actual edge in the game 
was probably the rebounding 
edge that the Dorm held over 
the Village, as Conley, Taylor, 
and Greene kept the ball away 
from all but Thomas on the Vil- 
lage team. The Dorm re- 
bounders grabbed 16 more 
missed shots than did opponents. 



GIRLS' ALL-STARS WIN 

Scoring on a last-second shot, 
Girls' All-Stars squeezed out a 
22-21 victory over season cham- 
pions Longoria. Basically a de- 
fensive struggle, the game saw 
only one player break into 
double figures — Linda Brand, 
with 1 1 points for Longoria. 

Top scorer for the all-star 
team was Donna Miller, who 
scored six points. Miss Lowman, 
and Phyllis Underwood each 
scored four points also for the

Following tonight's program, 
one remaining vesper service is 
to be presented by the MV. That 
presentation will be May 22. 

Earlier this week SMC's MV 
leaders and one of next year's 
student missionaries traveled to 
Union College, Lincoln, Neb., to 
attend the annual North Amer- 
i c a n Missionary Volunteer 
Workshop. This event, attended 
by representatives from campus 
MV societies from all die senior 
colleges in North America, is 
held in connection with the 
North American Student Asso- 
ciations Workshop. 

Representing SMC's MV at 
Lincoln are: Wayne Hicks, 
president; Doug Foley, presi- 
dent-elect; Harry Nelson, Mis- 
sions Emphasis coordinator; 
Elder Alan Williamson, spon- 
sor; and Carol Smart, 1970 stu- 
dent missionary. 



One form, submitted by the 
Election Committee, had Bill 
Boyle running separately from 
Elton Kerr, on an approve-dis- 
approve ballot. The other bal- 
lot, submitted by the Senate, 
had Kerr and Boyle running to- 
gether as a ticket. 

The decision handed down by 
the Judiciary said that the Elec- 
tion Committee's ballot was the 
legal one, since the new working 
policies of the constitution stated 
that an un-opposed candidate 
must run on an approve-disap- 
prove ballot. 

The Judiciary came into be- 
ing during the second semester 
of the Jim Davis-Mark Weigley 
administration last year. A con- 
stitutional amendment was 
pas-ed, adding a Judiciary to the 
SA's bodies. The duties were 
to rule on questions on the con- 
stitution, as brought up by one- 
third of the Senate. It never 
met under the old constitution. 



When the r 

was passed this year, the ques- 
tion of whether or not the Judi- 
ciary should remain was the 
subject of much debate. It was 
finally approved by the Senate, 
even though it was not in the 
original draft of die constitution. 
Members of the Judiciary 
present last Wednesday evening 
were Ron Hand, Mark Weigley, 
Floyd Greenleaf, and Glen Mc- 
Colpin. Joan Murphy is also a

Finances Reu/'ue SA 

II the recent SA elections proved anything- they demonstrated 
lhal SMC students (brieve it or not) are capable ol becoming 
excited about their student government. Though the excitemen 
stirred up by political campaigns is sometimes artificial or. at 
best transitory we can nevertheless be thankful that we have 
temporarily experienced a period of release from student apathy. 
Walking about the campus recently, even the most casual 
observer, il he had taken notice of campus life here at mid- 
semester could not help but see that the tempo and spint of the 
campus has improved. Realistically speaking, however, we still 
cannot say that all Ihe former ills of the SA have been extin- 
guished, but most signs seem to indicate that many of them have 
been brought under control. 

One might point to any number of several different changes 
that the elections have brought about and say that these are 
especially noteworthy. The ACCENT editors, likewise, have 
selected a specific change which we admire and we comment: 

We see that the elections have tapped and, otherwise, re- 
vived our heretofore dormant hope of someday realizing that 
student government really works. Perhaps this is folly, but we 
think not. We know that it is common for the SA to receive a 
fresh breath of air — a second wind — as new officers are elected, 
only to later have this same breath of vitality turn stale as il it 
were somehow polluted when scholastic, extra-curricular, and 
financial responsibilities slowly sap the enthusiasm and leader- 
ship capabilities of student leaders. 

Why, then, should we believe that things could be different? 

Because next year's key SA leaders — president, vice-presi- 
dent, secretary, treasurer, and ACCENT and "Memories" editors 
— will probably be receiving grant-in-aids about three times 
larger than the grants received by officers in those positions now, 
we foresee that they will in turn be able to devote more of their 
time toward maintaining effective leadership. This is perhaps 
an optimistic outlook, but we believe it is a realistic one, With 
a greater amount ol his financial needs cared for, it seems likely 
that any student leader could find more time to devote to his 
extra-curricular duties without undue stress scholastic ally as has 
not been the case in the past, 

Details have yet to be officially released, but the larger grants 
appear to be nearing reality. They are long overdue, SMC stu- 
dent leaders, while their duties have been equal to or greater 
than those of leaders on other SDA college campuses, have al- 
ways been given smaller remunerations than those given on our 
sister campuses. The ACCENT praises the college board and 
administration and the present SA leaders for initiating this 
forward step. We join with them in hoping it achieves its desired 
effect: a more active student government for 1970-71 and the 
years that follow. 



On the hill behind Talge Hall 
there is a sign, written on the 
lawn earlier this spring by a 
benefactor unknown to^me^ It 
cmi-ist- of an inverted "V" in a 
forty-foot circle— a universal 
symbol of concern for peace on 
earth. On a lovely spring day, 
it reminded me of a question I 
was asked last summer by a stu- 
dent at a much larger, more 
with-it institution. "Are the stu- 
dents at Southern Missionary 
College concerned about peace?" 
He pronounced the name 
carefully, conveying his un- 
famili.irity with it and his doubt 
that we were, indeed, concerned. 
(I did, however, prefer that to 
the rather deprecatory tone in 
which I have heard our fair 
school's name pronounced by 
some SDA's.) 

I had to admit I was not — 
and that neither were most 
others at SMC. In retrospect, I 
am glad we aren't. For the very 
persons who so loudly declare 
their "concern" for peace in the 
distant jungles of Southeast 
Asia are often the very ones who 
continually disturb the peace on 
their own campuses, nsiruj; phys- 
ical force freely to suppress 
those who disagree — often abus- 
ing them verbally as well. Tins, 
to me, is a form of hypocrisy as 
glaring as that found in the 
liberal "Establishment." The 
person who truly loves peace 
respects his fellow man's right 
to be mistaken, apathetic, dis- 
agreeable, or downright hostile. 
I think that at SMC most of 
us have learned to live and let 
live, to talk out our differences, 
and the art of compromise. We 
live surrounded by nature's 
peace, rather than by the crush 
,md rnmc .mil i.iriulc of Amer- 



ica's hypertensive citi 

campus is marked by the ab- 
sence of controversy and con- 
frontation, and by congeniality, 
friendliness, and usually by 
Christian courtesy. 

Even the school Administra- 
tion — usually a topic that raises 
voices and controversy on any 
campus, is a less explosive sub- 
ject here. A friend at one of our 
sister colleges once charged, 
"SMC is run by people who 
think you can tell good people 
from bad by their dress or hair 
style." And it is. But what of 



it? At SMC, one can foi 
about snowstorms, sunbathe 
the lawns, walk on the gr 
participate in any sport he 
wishes, and take a walk afte 
dark. For SMC students, troubL 
between the races is a flat tire 
between Daytona and Talladega 
on a weekend trip. People who 
choose schools on the basi: 
rules concerning skirt length., .. 
hair on the face, deserve what 
they get. We should be con- 
cerned with growth in more sig 
nificant areas. 

In short then, we at College 
dale have the solution to tin 
troubles of so many colleges to 
day. Perhaps we can share it 
with others who are "Con 
cerned." Perhaps I begin to set.

coats with shades that range 
from jet black to snowy white. 
Aussner's cages are built with a 
tunnel running along the back. 
This is for the exclusive use of 
the mating males. 

Since it takes from 150 to 175 
( him hill.i furs to make just one 
fur coat, someone has said that 
all chinchillas would have to 
breed regularly for 60 years be- 
fore there would be enough 
chinchilla furs to put just one 
coat in every fur store in the 
U.S. 

However, Aussner finds that 
his little desert rat friends, the 
gerbils, are in even greater de- 
mand than chinchillas. Natives 
of North Africa and Asia, ger- 
bils have only been in captivity 
in the states for the last ten

Stanley E. Walker, organist 
and professor of music at SMC, 
presented last Saturday after- 
noon the first of three inaugural 
concerts on the new Holloway

SMA Retreat 
Hosts Metcalf, 
Spongier, Cumbo 

The Student Ministerial As- 
sociation held its annual spring 
retreat on campus April 3 and 
4. Special guests were Elder H. 
E. Metcalf. ministerial secretary 
of the Southern Union, Elder J. 
R Spangler. associate secretary 
of the General Conference Min- 
isterial Association, and Elder E. 
E. Cumbo, ministerial secretary 
of the Georgia -Cumberland Con- 
ference. 

One hundred fifty religion 
students received practical in- 
struction and inspiration when 
Elder Metcalf presented his ex- 
periences in Jamaican evange- 
lism and a new method called 
"Dialogue Evangelism" in 
which audience participation 
with the evangelist is encour- 
aged. 

Elder Spangler challenged the 
group during the worship hour 
"to preach Christ." In the af- 
ternoon session he presented a 
new experiment in evangelism 
recently tried in the Philippines. 
It consists of intermingling the 
medical ministry with the doc- 
trinal teaching.

adequate communication skills. 
He should also be well-groomed. 
Botimer stated that this pro- 
gram is vaguely related to the 
present monitor program, but it 
now includes phases besides the

routine responsibilities. 

"We are very interested in

can to help prepare them."

WSMC News Conducts 
Polls During SA Campaign 






One of the more interesting 
sidelights of the past campaign 
were the polls laken under the 
direction of Don Schmidt for the 
WSMC News Department. 
These three polls, taken during 
the two days prior to the elec- 
tion, showed voter trends and 
allowed Schmidt to make elec- 
tion day predictions which came 

The first poll, taken Tuesday 
morning, showed that Kerr had 
19 percent of the voters, with 
Hicks carrying 26 percent. Over 
35 percent of the 200 polices 
were undecided. This poll was 
taken on campus at random. 

The second poll, taken in the 
two dorms Tuesday evening, 
showed that people were making 
up their mind, for only 21 per- 
cent were undecided. Kerr this 
tune had 43 percent, and Hicks 
hud 36 percent, and seemed to 
be closing the gap. 

This poll also included the 
Southed Accent race for the 



first time, and showed Lynda 
Hughes ahead with 51 percent 
to Bill Cash's 26 percent. Only 
2i percent were undecided. 

In this poll, 425 students gave 
their opinion, as WSMC em- 
ployees canvassed the dormitory 

The final poll, taken late 
Wednesday night — election eve 
—showed that both winning 
candidates seemed to have a 
band-wagon going. Kerr picked 
up to 49 percent, and Hicks 
dropped to 32 percent, with 19 
percent undecided. Hughes 
polled 51 percent again, but 
Cash dropped to 25 percent, 
with a larger amount, 24 per- 
cent undecided. 

This poll, also taken in the

Thirty - three Sehizographs, 
-pHl -pin >lngraphs arranged to 
offer a brilliantly, innovative 
new art form using natural 
scenery to produce fantastic de- 
signs, are on display for the 
first time to the public at SMC. 

These unusual and modern 
photographic creations were 
originated by nineteen year-old 
Mark McDade of Signal Moun- 
tain, Tenn. McDade is cur- 
rently a staff photographer for 
Rock City Gardens, atop Look- 
out Mountain, near Chatta- 
nooga. 

"Unlike the contrived paint- 
ings of the modernists," says 
McDade, "Sehizographs create 
harmonious patterns from the 
splendidly detailed structure of 
nature itself." 

McDade explains that each 
Schizograph begins with an orig- 
inal, full color photograph, se- 
lected for its inherent design. A 
duplicate and two mirror-image 
copies are made. These are 
carefully fitted together to make 
a "through the looking glass"

Both those who rode in cars and those who flew in planes 
(commercial and private) took chances — miles and miles of un- 
predictable drivers, stopping and starting, and city traffic; vs. 
miles and miles of air— space below, above, and all around. 

Not being a school of sadism, perhaps SMC can find a solu- 
tion to this question. This is not the last distant workshop which 
SMC's students will have the opportunity to participate in. Others 
are being planned by sister colleges in an effort to communicate. 

Two possible solutions seem feasible. First, someone's budget 
could provide the funds for commercial flight. Of course, in this 
way, only one or two could represent SMC. Only one or two

The second solution is a private plane (Scary Story Hour 
time)— an answer already found by several other colleges who 
attended the Union workshop. 

Those who are masters of the air advocate travel in the 
skies as being safer than car travel because of a pilot's thorough 
testing and training, and because of the absence of numerous 
"barely licensed" car careeners. 

Being a rather controversial matter, there is also another 
point of view. Would the college be responsible for the safety 
of the students? 

With objective evaluation, careful consideration of modem 
transportation trends, correct selection of pilots, alerl coordination 
of flight time with weather conditions, SMC can join the team 
with the cheery smiles, awake minds, and uncramped append- 

Tiuoli Provides Disguised Evangelism 

"Man, Oh Man!" the musical variety program presented by 
the Student Association was an achievement in community rela- 
tions, as well as an enjoyable program. But we mustn't let this 
performance terminate our work in this direction. 

Southern Missionary College has been called an isolated 
haven, particularly saintly because of its location away from 
a big city. Perhaps this is true. However, through various pro- 
gram:. — the Gate, Project East Chattanooga, prison bands, 
Maranatha — we have tried to reach out of our cocoon and we 
have succeeded — to a certain extent. 

Yet we have never before tried to reach the man on the street 
through public entertainment. People can be reached through 
this media who would never be approached or be approachable 
through any other avenue. Quality entertainment with a mes- 
sage will appeal to many who would scorn a Bible study or an 
invitation to evangelistic meetings. 



You may have noticed the 
fading of the peace sign which 

furnished the keynote to the last 
Speculum. And alas, even in 
our serene and peaceful physical 
selling, there are a few items 
that grate, disturbing one's peace 
of minfl. 

Without a doubt, the thing 
that has bothered me most dur- 
ing my 3-year sojourn in Happy 
Valley is the haunting, back-of- 
my-mind knowledge that I was 
not being adequately prepared 
to compete in our modern, 
hypertensive society with gradu- 
ates of larger, more with-it 
schools. I do not refer to the 
inevitable raise of the eyebrows 
lhat accompanies revealing, to a 
personnel man for example, 
thai one's alma mater is South- 
ern Missionary College. This 
reaction is only 1o be expected 
by a follower of a way of life 
generally believed to be out- 
dated. 

I do refer to some respects in 
which we are the tail and not 
the head, to reverse Mrs. 
White's blunt metaphor. This 
is a lot easier to understand 
than to accept. 1 once heard a 



l|||Mult'<>) 



attributed to Socrates, 
vhich states that an ideal school 
is a good teacher on one end of 
a log and a good student on the 
other. At SMC the typical stu- 
dent has better facilities open to 
him than he would at many of 
the nation's most recognized in- 
stitutions. And I have been as- 
sured by the Academic Dean 
that our students are definitely 
not inferior to others. 

Recently, our attention has 
been called to the under-repre- 
sentauon of mediocrity on the 
Supreme Court. I would like to 
call attention to the over-repre- 
sentation of mediocrity on the 
SMC faculty. Teachers who 
view their degrees as union 
cards and their positions as 
mere "jobs," are anti-intellec- 
tuals and should not hold posi- 
tions of authority over young 
minds, some of which still aspire 
to be more than "average." 

If, as seems clear to me, this 
problem is real and significant, 
I would like to suggest two 
means of alleviating it. First, 
let employment and promotion 
in the SDA organization be 
based more on competence and

And the audience just loved it. 

Credit has to be given to those who worked so hard for the 
program's success. Miss Luce, Mr. Ashton, Mike Bodtker, and 
Cheryl letter deserve a round of applause for the well-written 
script. Mr. Runyan outdid himself in preparing the choral groups. 
Dr. Dick and Mike Foxworthy performed beyond the-call-of-duty 
in directing the production. 

Special thanks should go also to the people of the Siskin 
Foundation, and to the production crew of the Tivoli, Mr. Taylor, 
and the Public Relations department more than gave enough 
publicity for the program. 

lust watching the students on the stage, one could tell that 
they enjoyed doing the program. And in the reception that fol- 
lowed the program, over and over one heard, "Let's do that 
again." "Let's come back next year." 

During the week following the program, that idea has been 
heard countless times. Why not? Most ot the cast, and those 
associated with the program have expressed willingness to put 
on a similar program next year, and the following years. We 
heartily endorse the idea. 

However, we feel that if the project were undertaken again, 
plans should begin earlier in the year, and the program should 
be put on in March or April, a Utile further away from the end 
of the year and exams. 

Let's get the ball rolling for next year's program right now!

less on political connections 
with, and submission to, our 
clergy and their views. Second, 
pay some attention to general 
student opinion. In a Christian 
school, a teacher believed by 
80% of his students to be in- 
competent, probably is. This 
should be taken into account. 
Our faculty should be more than 
mere purveyors of tape-recorded 
lectures for note-taking. They 
should be big enough to exclude 
their personal approval or dis- 
approval of a student's way of 
life from consideration in grad- 
ing. They should not be arbiters 
of fashion and standards in such 
sensitive areas as dress and hair 
styles. This is the responsibility 
of the college ao'ministran'on. 
Teachers have a higher calling 
— to be intellectually stimulat- 
ing. 

Fortunately, this is still a 
minority problem. I would like 
to thank those teachers who 
have been an inspiration to me 
here at Collegedale — for staying 
and tolerating low salaries and 
the mediocrity of colleagues. 
They show personal interest and 
go the second mile with stu- 
dents. They are indeed the salt 
of the earth.

Cast Impressions 

By Bill Cash 
Being a member of the Tivoli 
cast was something else. And 
since all's well that ends well, 
everything came out okay, after 
all. But there were doubts for 

It all began what seems eons 
ago. Somewhere, a script ap- 
peared, and the choral groups 
were formed, and started prac- 
ticing. Most of the cast already 
belonged to either or both the 
chorale and choir, but more 
members were needed. Don 
Runyan's office sent out notices 
to all the students soliciting their 
help. And help c

groups. 

Then prac 
kept on, anc 
on . . . There was practice at 
ID. practice at 5, and practice 
at 7:30. Finally, the directors 
decided to bring everyone to- 




gether, and begin the staging. 
Mike Foxworthy and Dr. Don 
Dick spent hours planning the 
staging, using the Tabernacle 
iincl Spiilding School recreation 
room as practice stages, marked 
with the dimension of the Tivoli 
stage. 

Finally, the final week ar- 
rived. By this time, slides for 
the multi-media segments were 
taken, costumes ordered, or be- 
ing made, and the props were 
being gathered. The entire cast 
spent a couple of evenings going 
through the whole program in 
the Tabernacle. 

Then came the first disastrous 
dress rehearsal at the Tivoli. 
\\V.in.---(l,iy evening, the entire 

crew boarded buses, and spent 
the evening exploring the Tivoli 
between practices. Every nook 
and crany in the place was 
scrutinized before the evening 
was over. Needless to say, the 
rehearsal definitely lacked some- 
Thursday evening, everyone 
boarded the buses again for 
what turned out to be the final 



rehearsal. Two run-throughs 
proved that the cast DID know 
the program. Lighting arrange- 
ments were finalized, and the 
costumes were tried on. Even 
the banana boat boys made the 
scene! No one was dismayed 
when directors Dick and Bun- 
yan announced that there were 
to be no more rehearsals until 
Sunday. 

Sunday dawned bright and 
early for the cast members. By 
8:30, performers were being 
made up. For the last time, the 
cast boarded the buses, and ar- 
rived at the Tivoli by 1 that 
afternoon. 

A quick rehearsal, and final 
directions were made before the

Girl Meets lathe 




By Cheryl Jetter 
For most girls, an industrial 
arts course inspires such adjec- 
tives as masculine, baffling, dull, 
irrelevant. But Beth Breden- 
kamp, a two-year nursing stu- 
dent, approaches her woodturn- 
ing class with a new concept.

STANDINGS 



The lead in the fast pitch 
league has changed hands sev- 
eral times during the last two 
weeks, but at press time, Ernie 
Steven's team finds itself with a 
tenuous half-game lead over 
Gary Gryte's and Dennis 
Ward's teams. 

But that half-game lead looks 
pretty big when one looks at the 
schedule. Gryte has but one 
game left, and can do no better 
than tie, unless everybody else 
loses. Ward's remaining games 
include one with Stevens, and 
two with Rouse, who boasts Nel- 
son Thomas as pitcher. Stevens 
other remaining game is with 
cellar-dweller Stepanske. 

Stepanske's team is a victim 
of hard luck this year. Several 
hitters on the team have yet to 
find their groove, and freak er- 
rors have accounted for several 
losses. One that comes to mind 
was against Ward. Pleasants 
was on weekend leave, leaving 
Ward to pilch. Stepanske was 
coasting with a nice lead, until 
Larry Bicknell dropped a third- 
out fly with the bases loaded. 
Ward then pitched out of a 
seventh-inning rally to save his 

Steven's team has been rely- 
ing on the timely fielding ;m<] 
lulling of Leon Elliston, Bobby 
MacAlpine's hilling, and Nelson

. but it does 





that if Thoresen doesn't 
strike a batter out, Elliston will 
throw him out! Thoresen is 
leading the league in strikeouts, 
■'lvonifjinfi almost 10 per game. 
Against Ward earlier in the 
season, in a 5-inning game, he 
struck out 12! 

Thoresen's latest exploit was 
a 2-hitter against Rouse last 
week. Although that in itself 
isn't too unusual for fast pitch, 
one must be reminded that for 
62/3 inning, no one on Rouse's 
learn got a hit! Only one out 
from the no-hitter, Ron Hand 
got a double, and then Coach 
Thomas singled him home, thus 
ruining Thoresen's shutout, as 
well. Stevens won that one 2-1. 
Another surprise this year has 
been Gryle's resurgence. After 
Insin^ their Firs! two games, they 
have come back and have won 
four games straight, before los- 
ing lo Rouse this week, 5-1. 

Other scores in the past iwo 
weeks include: Gryte 13, Ste- 
panske 1; Gryte 4, Stevens 3; 
and Gryte 6, Ward 2. 

Slow Pitch 

The big story in slow pitch 
has been the demise of the 
Gooks, Afler (lvurwliclniing thf 
opposition in their first three 
games, they dropped their next 
two to Swilley, 9-8. and Moore, 
17-13. 

MeanwhUe, Moore's team has 
continued lo roll, and they now 
have a half-game lead over 
Tryon and Garner. 

Scores in this league have 
been: Garner 9, Moore 7; Swil- 
ley 21, Stanley 7; Tryon 16, 
Garner 15; Swilley 7, WSMC 
(forfeit); Garner 20, Long 7; 
Moore 7, WSMC (forfeit); 
and Garner 18, Stanley 15.

This year's and next year's 
Student Association administra- 
tions have both found cause for 
rejoicing. After struggling to 
pay off a seemingly insurmount- 
able loan from the school ad- 
ministration for the student 
lounge and not making much 
progress, the SA has now solved 
their problem — or had it solved 
for them. 

The students' problem is 
solved because the school has 
decided to forget the whole 
"loan" idea. Although the SA 
had already paid off a portion 
of the loan through various 
projects, the larger part still re- 
mained — and looked as if it 
would for some time. 

Therefore, since the money 
had already been paid out by 
the school and the SA was hav- 
ing such a hard time paying it 
off, the school has now stepped 
in and pulled the SA out of the 
hole it was sliding into by not 
requiring it to repay the ap- 
proximate $6000 balance. 

Next year's SA finds encour- 
agement from this decision be- 
sides other accomplishments 
they have already achieved. 

Committees a 
plans for 10 activities to take 
place during the first eight 
weeks of school next year to put 



the SA in the minds of the stu- 
dents well enough so they won't 
forget it in a hurry, according 
to president-elect Elton Kerr. 

Kerr feels that a big step has 
been taken in plans for hosting 
the Eastern Division of the Ad- 
ventist Intercollegiate College 
Bowl tournament competition 
which will bring to our campus 
representatives from all SDA 
colleges east of the Rocky Moun- 

The 1970-71 admin istr.it ion 
has also arranged to have SA 
funds placed in an interest- 
drawing account for the first 
time. The resulting interest 
will provide an extra $600 for 
SA use. 

Plans include having the 
Joker (student directory) pub- 
lished within two weeks of the 
ln?].;i lining of school so faces and 
names can get together and be- 
come people before half the first 
semester is over, Pictures of 
student nurses planning to be at

being taken.

general SA funds from this year. 
Money for this more adequate

SMC Board Meets; Votes on New Teachers 



The SMC Board voted several 
priorities in building. I hi' m'din.i- 
tion of one faculty member, the 
promotion of several faculty 
members, and the placement of 
several new staff members. 

The SMC Board of Trustees 
voted to employ William Garber 
to replace Leamon Short who 
has resigned as instructor of 
journalism. It was voted that 
Mrs. Helen Knittel would 
replace Miss Carolyn Luce who 
has resigned. Don Taylor, who 
will be graduated this year by 
SMC, was employed as assistant 
dean of men. Mrs. Lois Pal- 
mour was employed as assistant 
dean of women on the Madison, 
Tennessee, campus. Mrs. Mild- 
red Spears, who now teaches in 
the A. W. Spalding Elementary 
School, was employed as an in- 



structor in education. Elder 
George Rice of Cleveland, Ohio, 
who is completing his doctorate 
degree in religion at Case West- 
ern University, was employed 
as an associate professor of re- 
Miss Zerita Hagerman was 
promoted to full professor of 
nursing, and Miss Georgann 
Kindsvater was promoted to as- 
sistant professor of nursing. 

The Board voted to give Elder 
Ronald Springett the rank of 
assistant professor, and to have 
the Georgia-Cumberland Con- 
ference of Seventh-day Adyent- 
ists ordain him to the ministry. 
Several faculty members were 
granted leaves as follows: Mrs. 
Genevieve McCormick, assistant 
professor of speech, will tour 



Europe this summer; Robert

slipping along rather rapidly. We exceeded our Ingathering goal 
by only seven cents. Elder Robertson held our Week of Prayer. 
The Seniors organized, and Dean Botimer's apartment caught 
lire, and half the fellows never evacuated the dorm. 

Oh. yes, the Senate voted to raise S7.D00 in some way or 
another. 

Then the church decided to stop subsidizing the Gate, and 
Wayne and Bob had to find new ways to finance their evange- 
listic project. Don Pate won the temperance orations. 

By this lime, il was December, and cold weather {what little

March came in like a lion — too fast. A new constitution was 
written and approved by the Senale before students hardly had 
time lo hear about il. Elder Fagal conducted an interesting Week 
of Prayer. And students started campaigning clandestinely for 
Ihe coming SA elections. 

Tragedy struck our campus late lhal month. Terrie Mc-

The SA constitution was passed, and plans began for the 
SMC extravaganza at the Tivoli. 

Then elections hit the campus. Posters cluttered up every

On the campus of Newbold 
College in Binfield. England. 
stands an old parish church. 
One may visit its cool, quiet 
recesses at any time of day or 
night to seek God in meditation 
and prayer. Its doors are al- 
ways open, as is true of nearly 
all English churches. I found 
this charming, and a great im- 
provement over the tightly 
locked Seventh-day Adventist 
Churches of America, which are 
used fur only a few prearranged 
hours per week, yet represent an 
investment of millions of dollars 
dedicated to God. Each time I 
visited St. Marks, I thought of 
Collegedale in July, with our 
beautiful church silent, locked, 
deserted, its expensive air-condi- 
tioners depreciating in ihe hu- 
midilv while the men of Talge 
sweltered — a grim parallel with 
the gilded cathedrals erected 
amid slums by the devout of the 
Middle Ages. 

I also found it pleasant to at- 
tend the Anglican services from 
time to time. The 11:00 meet- 
ing is called Divine Service, a 
term also used by British SDA's. 
No effort is spared lo eliminate 
from it all that is mundane or 
unworthy of the worship of 
God. In the foyer is the "poor 
box." tit which the parishoners 
depn-it their lilhes and offerings 
as they enter. It is an ingenious 
device, similar to that used in 
the Jewish synagogues of 
Christ's lime, as in the "widow's 
mite" incident. I found this a 
nice change from the jangling 
offerings that disrupt the SDA 
service, all too often keynoting 
the sermon or worsened by a 
I. Once here, a 



diil.l 



liously dumped ihe offering 
e on the floor. Her mother 
■ped her and said, "Jesus 



liis household. 
Yaunt for free speech,

doesn't want you to do that." 
Strange. I rather thought He 

might have resorted to similar 

"Glory Be to the Father" — a 
text, a hymn, the doxology. and 
an ideal. How wise of the Eng- 
lish church lo repeat it so often, 
keeping it ever in view. Their 
service is a little formal, per- 
haps, a little stereotyped, but a 
much better stereotype than ihe 
one I have of Collegedale — ex- 
hortations to distribute bills in 
Ooltewah, "knock on doorbells." 
lower our hemlines, raise our 
sideburns, turn down our ster- 
eos, lurn up our sleeves, buy 
buses, sell 'Libert v bonds.' build 
schools, smash TV's, el cetera ad 
nauseam. If we heard Jesus 
Christ, and Him crucified, as the 
iheme of each and every ser- 
mon, all these things would be 
added unto us. We would com- 
ply out of love for God, not be- 
cause the preacher shamed us 

We as SDA's have the truth, 
of course, and more than a form 
of godliness which denies its 
power, as I suspect is sometime* 
true of our Anglican fellow- 
Christians. We should be able 
to accept some of their superior 
"externals," however, to further 
enhance our superior "inter- 
nals." 

One lasl point; the hymns in 
our 11; 00 worship should be 
stately, reverent, and thought- 
ful. They should leave us feel- 
ing we have been to meet God. 
not to a well-dressed, well: 
heeled pep rally. A mathema- 
tician might suggest that the 
number of every hymn in a 
good worship service is less lhan 
or equal to 350.

mine will lead to a wider dis- 
cussion of these questions, and

To Those We lost 



By Bonnie Ivehson 
Al the close of this school

it and sense only the over- 
whelming trials we've experi- 
enced without remembering the 
goals those trials have afforded. 
We've faced some things we've

never had to face before — the 
loss of teachers, loved ones, and 
friends— particularly the young 
lives of our classmates, Terrie 
M< Alexander and Linda Reile. 

We met them. We became 
their friends. We felt their 
presence. And through theirs 
we sensed God's. 

We sang together and laughed 
and talked . . . and cried. But 
il was all a part of being friends.

Two others are considering

Dan Bentzinger, sophomore

All except two of the ap-

"We are sorry that we could 
not use more men," said Boti-

had to be denied the opportunity 
this year, perhaps they will 
have another chance next year." 



with such vividness, such ach- 
ing, until they are gone. Not 
when they're such a pari of us. 
If we could have known— if 
we could have had one last mo- 
ment together, knowing it was 
will be paid indeed the last, what would we 
have said? 

"You two have really been 
wonderful friends. . . . We don't 
want you to go away. . . . We'll 
miss you terribly." Words ut- 
tered at the doorway of empti- 
ness, at the pathway leading to 
pain and finality, are trite. 
They're not effective. Would 
we have cried? Or would we 
have been brave? Maybe the 
Man knew what He was doing 
when He didn't tell us — when 
He didn't make us aware. 

And suddenly — not like the 
gradual sinking of their lives 
into our hearts — they were 
gone. They didn't come back. 
Our minds still argue uncon- 



vincmgly with our hearts that 
they won't be back — at least not 
to room 260 or 237; not to Char- 
lotte or Stone Mountain; not to 
these United States or to this 
old earth. But they will be hack. 
That's for sure. 

Not a day goes by without a 
pang of sadness or the bite of a 
memory touching us. And some- 
times, with tears rolling down 
our faces, we want desperately 
to cry out and say, "Oh, God! 
Why?" all the time knowing

Drawing Students 
Exhibit Paintings 

Students taking Drawing II 
and Painting I and II at SMC 
are now displaying approxi- 
mately 25 art works on the sec- 
ond floor of Wright Hall until 
the end of the school year. 

The original pieces are done 
in charcoal, ink, pastels, pencil. 
conte, chalk, oil, and acrylic on 
subjects anywhere from ab- 
straction to realism. 

Some of the pictures, accord- 
ing to art instructor Mrs. Elea- 
nor Jackson, were done as the 
class final examination. The 
students were encouraged to 
think and illustrate their 
thoughts, she said, and to inter- 
pret Christianity in their own 
experience. Some of the sub- 
jects were assigned; and the 
others were the students' own 
philosophical approaches to life. 

Included among several more 
paintings to be added this week 
to the present display are some 
illustrating a Bible verse or
