The Big Move finally hap- 
pened! Books from the A. G. 
Daniells Memorial Library 

started rolling on their 'journey 
across campus on Monday, July 
6, guided by a crew from Build- 
ings and Grounds and the li- 
brary staff. One week later, the 
new library was open for busi- 
ness, although the move was not 
yet completed. 

Moving 60,000 volumes from 
one building to another and 
keeping them in order from 
their original shelves until they 
were in place again in their new 
home was a tremendous task. 
Charles Davis, head librarian, 
described the process. "We took 
the books off the shelves in order 
and placed them on carts with 
wheels. Then we wheeled the 
carts onto a van, keeping the 
carts in order, drove to the new 
library and rolled them into the 
new shelving area where they 
were again placed on shelves, 
still in order." 

"The first books to go over 
were bound periodicals, the 
reference collection, and books 
for browsing and general read- 
ing," he continued. "Next we 
took the Library of Congress col- 
lection and last the Dewey col- 
lection." 

The card catalogue was 
moved on the first day, taking 
cards from 180 drawers in the 
old library and putting them 
into 360 drawers in the new fa- 
cility, leaving room for expan- 

The actual moving of the 
books took five days. The mov-

SMC Hosts 
Teachers 



SMC held a workshop in pro 
reading for elementary teacher 
horn the southern states served f 
V the college on June 8 to 12. 

Several area teachers also at- 
tended the workshop, which was 
sponsored by the Southern Un- 
'on Conference and was directed 
h John E. Baker, reading spe- 
cialist for the Spalding Elemen- 
tary School at Collegedale. 

Approximately 65 teachers 
attended the workshop, and 
stress was laid on the ph< 
Program for the fii 

Assisting Baker was Mrs. & 
Mildred Spears, also of the SMC g 
staff. 

Others teaching in the work- 
hop were Mrs. Inez Myers, 
tupervisor for the Georgia- 

^uniberl.inrl schools, .uid .Kirnei 
D "ke, supervisor for the Florida 
school; 




school. "I have really appreci- 
ated the work of the moving 
crew," stated Davis. "They have 
done a tremendous job." 

Other materials which had to 
be transported to the new li- 
brary were still being moved 
during the following week. 
Renovation of the old building, 
which is to be occupied by the 
Math and Physics Departments 
and Computer Science, is to be- 
Liin immediately --ifter it is va- 
cated. 

The present capacity of the 
new library is 100,000 books, 
and presently it is only 60 per- 
cent full. Davis predicts that it 
will be five years before new 
shelving must be added, and 
says that 300,000 volumes could 
be held in the building with the 
purchase of more shelves.

Two Alumni 
Die in Crash 

Two 1968 graduates of SMC, 
Gary Anderson and his wife, 
Glenda, were apparently killed 
in a Cessna 210 that crashed on 
May 30, just south of Mackinac 
Island, Michigan. They were 
the only passengers. 

Anderson, an Andrews Uni- 
versity seminarian, had 195 
hours of flight time. At the time 
of take-off from the island there 
was heavy fog and zero visibil- 
ity. Reports showed that several 
persons heard a loud noise, that 
could have been a crash, around 
5:00 p.m., Saturday, Papers 
from the plane were washed 
ashore and found on Sunday. 

Anderson was being spon- 
sored at Andrews by the Caro- 
lina Conference. He was to 
work there after he received his 
bachelor of divinity degree in 
August. His parents are pastor 
and Mrs. D. G. Anderson of 
Hendersonville, N.C.

Why College? 



Two-lhirds of the summer is now in the post. Whil. the 
campus and faculty are getting ready for a new bombardment 
of students, the students themselves are preparing their mi

Is college more a social institution than an educational insti- 
tution? Like as not, a large number of college freshmen will 
converge upon SMC the last week ol August who are "just look- 
ing"— socially. Then when their first grade report comes out, 
they will wonder what happened,

modem college life has come to mean. College tile will be most 
valuable to those who can see beyond the daily chores to the 
knowledge they are gaining to fit into the going, growing world. 
A college education is to help us avoid accepting the world 
OB it is or conforming meekly and pretending that things are 
better than they are. It is to keep us from withdrawing into a 
private world of self-indulgence, from condemning and tearing 
down society. 

With our newly-gained knowledge we are to begin helping 
the world by helping the problems nearest us— morale, for ex- 

A large number of students have doubts about whether this 
is possible. Society looks like a series of huge, impersonal insti-

WSMC Airs Live Reports 
Of SDA World Session 



The Adventist Radio Network

; like these, 

is any room left to be one's self and to affect the way things are. 
It is difficult: but impossible, no. 

When our school classes become our biggest problem and 
freedom from that seemingly endless struggle more inviting, 
need to look again and see that in the mode 
degree is where a successful career begins. 

We can look at the people around us who do not have a 
college education, and see if they are doing the thinking part of 
influencing the world, or doing the routine, repititious work. 

Is that what we want? Well, that's what we'll get unless 
we make it different, unless we can look beyond the everyday 
chore part of college and see our places in making the school 
a better place, and ultimately, the whole world.

Director of the broadcasts was 
Dr. Don Dick, chairman of the 

Communications Department .it

The general topics for the 
programs varied each night, 
focusing on different themes of 
the Adventist work including 
missions, education, medicine 
and health, laymen's activities, 
youth, communication, human 
relations, and church growth, 

The format was a news a 
commentary style with special 
reports, interviews, and general 
news, interspersed with 
the abundant musical selections 
heard at the conference which 
added an international flavor.

Youth Observer Foley Tells About GC 



Computer System Used 
For Meals in Cafeteria 



The cafeteria recently ran a 
two-week trial run on a system 
of charging meals through a 
computer, and present plans 
call for the system to be perma- 
nently implemented on Aug. 25. 

Each student will receive a 
coded identification card which 
he will carry to all meals. The 
total charge of his meal will be 
added up, and the identification 
card will be placed in the ma- 
chine, which then records the 
data in a punched card. 

"This method will save the 
cafeteria about $400 a month, 
including the cost of the ma- 



rhinc .mil its operation, says 
Ted Mohr, who is helping to 
install the system. 




Campus Construction Booms; 
Old Buildings Get New Look 



Construction is booming mi 
campus this summer. With the 
new library nearly finished, the 
action has moved to other build- 
ing projects, such as the new 
house for the dean of men be- 
hind Talge Hall, the new Col- 
lege Market, and renovation of 
the Campus Kitchen. 

The old A. G. Daniells li- 
brary building is being com- 
pletely redone inside for the 
Math and Physics Departments 
and Computer Science, with 
tiered lecture 
seating. 

Third floor of Jones Hall and

was continued in a three-year 
scholarship by the National 
Maritime Union. This award 
carries a $2,500 stipend and this 
year it was renewed for her sen- 
ior year. The scholarship was 
re-awarded on the basis of Scho- 
lastic Aptitude Test scores, high 
school grades, and teacher rec- 
ommendations. 

Ten students received $100 
scholarships sponsored by Mr. 
and Mrs. O. D. McKee, McKee

The scholarships are based upon 
academic achievement, char- 
acter, and cooperation.

visited all of the standing com- 
mittees except the nominating 
committee," said Doug. Dia- 
logue sessions brought the youth 
face to face with leaders such as 
Elder Neal C. Wilson, president 
of the North American Division. 

"Our youth are a segment of 
the church from which we have 
not been hearing much offi- 
cially." said Wilson. "Our sys- 
tem which provides the nearly 
1800 delegates gathered here 
doesn't have many slots for 
young people." 

The president of the General 
Conference, Elder Robert H. 



Pierson, also met with the group 
and discussed the problems and 
plans of the church. 

"I found that a misconception 
of what the General Conference 
was really like came because of 
a lack of communications," said 
Foley. "I feel a real burden to .— 
communicate what I saw at GC^H 
to the kids back home and at 
SMC."

program at the beginning of 
this school year where Doug 
will be able to tell the students 
about his experiences at the

SMC Continues "Traditions" 

Several traditions al SMC have again be> 



i renewed t 



First of all, there is the typical 
student body expansion, ll has, in the past, always been a (act 
to be proud of. One wonders, however, how much a school can 
expand and still provide complete education and facilities for 
each student. 

With the hurried renovation of Jones Hall, an extension wom- 
en's dormilory has been created. Every year- it seems, a decision 
is made to lei bygones be bygones and allow the building to 
linish falling apart, but what happens?— a little bit more of Ihe 
building is remodeled and dragged back into use. Carpets are 
laid over the undulanl floors and paneling is nailed to the sag- 
ging, cracking walls. 

Yes, we are helping students to come to an SDA school, in 
pari. About 40 percent ol them are, however, from out of Ihe 
Southern Union area where not-so-crowded schools can be found.

SA Reborn; President 
Promises Tangibles 



Senate Elects 
Sommervi//e 

Lewis Sommcrvillc, sophomore 
ology major, became the 1970- 
I Student Association parliamen- 
rian last week when the Senate 
itified his appointment. 
The Senate met for the first time 
iji.-m.I,i) night, Sept. 8, and was 
iroduced lo the parliamentary 
ocedurc which will be practiced 
all meetings. 

Other items of business included 

lification of Public Relations 

tairman Kathy Steadman and of 

; Judiciary Committee. Also 

ted was that the SA would pay 

rent the film, "To Sir With 

ivc," which was shown after the 

i picnic. A nominating com- 

iltee was appointed to select 36 

ludents to serve on faculty com- 

littecs in accordance with a re- 

Buest by the college administration. 

I The 36 students will be selected,

By Charles Mullis 

Several questions arose in my 
mind Tuesday after chapel: Was 
the SA just born in chapel, or 
was it another September miscar- 
riage? Also, if it were bom, exactly 
who was the father? 

President Elton Kerr, in his ini- 
tial address to the student body, 
promised that this year, "the Stu- 
dent Association will play a signif- 
icant and legitimate role in the life 
of each student of SMC." How- 

clarcd that '"

SA ad- 



to some of the more astute SA 
critics lo be contradictory. 

Kerr then lists seven "tangibles" 
to be expected from this year's SA, 
initiating at least two new ideas: 
(1) a standing committee on Stu- 
dent Services, which will endeavor 
to bring more service to the stu- 
dents, and (2) featuring "provoca- 
tive speakers" for future SA chap- 
els. The SA will continue various 
social programs of the past, 



this i 






ever, making improvements over 
the past. 

The general opinion of the stu- 
dent body (based on an informal 
survey at the head of Rachacl's 
Ladder) seems to be one of con- 
fidence and support, or al least 
hope for this year's SA. 

The Kerr administration seems 
to have all the potentials of raising 



the nonspirilualistic crystal ball re- 
veals that the SA cannot be neg- 
lected after its birth; it still need-. 
to be weaned and trained.

mmonl (woops!) begs nc

Hice doors, but the student 

uuuy IHU31 ucijj u bui.i.hu is the goal. Committees can light the 
sparks, but the students themselves must also burn with en- 
thusiasm. 

Does that necessary enthusiasm lie dormant among the many 
new, anonymous faces mingling on the campus? Will the faces 
tum in interest or will they withdraw into dark, little comers and 
throw out darts? 

The former contenlion seems possible as evidenced in the 
first SA assembly. Although the slat presented by the SA officers 
cannot really be classed in as high a category as humor, it defi- 
nitely was not staid and serious. Perhaps you could describe it 
as a political cartoon personified. 

The students seemed to have responded to the skit repre- 
senting the "Birth of the SA" and to have listened interestedly, 
though not naively, to the president's speech which followed. 

The reaction ol the total student body to the assembly pro- 
gram was characteristically summed up by one of the SA admin- 
istration's most notorious critics: "I was really disappointed — it 
wasn't a flop!" 

The ultimate effect of the new Student Association is not only 
the responsibility of the officers, but of the Student Association — 
the student body — the students individually!

JOKER Breaks SMC Record 

The JOKERS are out! A world record must have been broken 
lor getting pictures, names, and type faces coordinated so quickly. 
A state record? Well, anyway, an SMC record. 

The Cress Computer Company may now pick up their school 
books again or set their alarm clocks for more than two hours of 
sleep at night. 

The product is slartlingly useful besides funny (the usual 
faces). Now we won't know who the freshmen are — they won't 
ask questions; they'll just refer to their JOKERS for where to go. 
when to go, and how to get there. 

Perhaps if the females in the officers' section wear slacks 
next year, the CCC won't have to bisect them halfway from north 
to south. For the one or two which escaped bisection, maybe 
Chiquita stickers could be stuck in appropriate places. 

Nevertheless, SMC shoppers now have early access to the 
Male Order Catalogue (o r Female Order— whichever the case 
may be). 

MV Entertainment Draws Crowds 

Well, we knew it couldn't be the registration line ber 

registration is already 
be the cafeteria li 
Saturday night? 

MV Saturday night drew crowds this year. The only out- 
standingly noticeable diiference between the line at registration 
and the one Saturday night was that in the latter everyone was 
smiling, being polite, and standing patiently rather than crushing 
each other through the unopened door. (Maybe we should have 
dates and dress up for registration.) 

Some have spoken of the advertising for "Five Flags Over 
Collegedale" as a "professional job." Whatever the job was, the 
results were professional. Not only did the advertising show a 
lot of planning and hard work, but the program itself must have 
involved hundreds of people cooperating and coordinating. An 
astonishing phenomenon to some was the free food— an unheard- 
of happening on this college campus. 

Each one of the five countries represented in the program 
showed elaborate planning. Costuming, decorating and pro- 
graniming blended into a stimulating evening for those who were 
"passengers," and even for those who planned the evening.

W'nportant and certainly the one 
wvith the most potential. As its 
Mname implies, the Legacy is to 
moe something handed down 
mfrom the past, a reflector of tlie 
contemporary student thought 
'/ this scliool year. It is my de- 
ire to expand tlie Legacy to in- 
-lude all tlie varied facets of

■nce, to bar no legitimate ex- 
pression of what it is like to live

end, Sept. 10-12. 

Those who volunteered for "In 
Groups" will separate into groups 
of 12 or fewer, meeting regularly 
to study the Bible and pray for 
their project— to get more students 
to join their group. 

When each group reaches 12

The "In Groups" form the core

Using practical, everyday 
examples, he showed the delegates 
keep from being lonely 
spiritually, and how to guard the 
precious deposit of hope and trust, 
faith and truth" that has been left 
vith us. 

Perhaps one of the most inter- 
ring segments, and certainly the 
longest were the discussions led by 
Elder Malcolm Maxwell from 
Walla College's Theology 
Department. Using I Corinthians 



"Brighten the Corner" and "Only a 
Boy Named David," 

Climaxing the entire weekend 
were the two Sabbath services— the 
morning sermon by Union Presi- 
dent Elder H. H. Schmidt, and the 
evening Commitment Service by 
Elder Holland. Closing the con- 
ference, the delegates gathered 
around Camp Kulaqua's famous

Another qualified and interesting

minisien.il secretary of the Colum-

his descriptions Elder Brooks made 
graphic what Christianity was all 
about. Words fail when one tries 
to describe how Elder Brooks por-

Besides the music provided by 
Elder Brooks and the delegates, 
those present were treated to a 
concert each evening by the King's

they also participated in the dis-

Flashbacks of the conference

to register after a 500-mile bus

From the looks of things, Ten-

tate for road rallies, but wc hope 
nis appearance will change in our 
rea on Nov. 8. The Student As- 
ociation is in the process of plan- 
iing a road rally, and much help is 
rgently needed.

fore who would like to help.

■Unleer to help with check points, or

ings carefully and follow speed 

The navigator must be as good 
as the driver, and here is where the 
sharp-eyed girls come in. The 
navigator watches for the land 
marks which enable the driver to 
follow the directions. 

Hence the problem and joy of 
road rallying: arriving at the right 
place at the right time. 

Boyle said that the date has been 
tentatively set for Sunday, Nov. 8. 
Whether the date can be met de- 
pends on who volunteers to share 
his knowledge and experience. 

If this is what you've been wait- 
ing for, start looking for Bill Boyle, 
and rally to the cause.

; the first of a series of speakers 



: sponsored by

■ director at NASA's 

Marshall Space Flight Center in

Mohlere concentrated on little- 
known tangible benefits flowing 
from the well - known major 
achievements of NASA's space ex- 

"It is often difficult to measure 
benefits in monetary terms. 



"By the mid-1970's wc hope to

tions with 85 percent accuracy. 
Accurate long-range weather pre- 
dictions can save more than SJ bil- 
lion a year," he said. "By early

our weather and climate." 



some 70,000 people from the path 
of Hurricane Camillc. Without 
early warning, some 50,000 people 
might have perished," Mohlere 
added. 

"One of the most intriguing 
enigmas in space has been die dis- 
covery of quasars — short for quasi- 
stellar objects. They produce 
energy on such a gigantic scale that 
their origin and their identity can 
only be guessed at. Study of the

Pate, a sophomore theology ma- 
jor, was the third student featured 
during the show. During the past 
summer he participated in a Vista 
Volunteer- type program sponsored 
by the Seventh-day Adventist 
Church in Middlesboro, Ky. 

The object of the half-hour pro- 
gram was "to tell the story of three 
students who care enough about 
today's problems to do something 
about them," said Garber. He con- 
cluded, "Yet, these students are 
carrying out their commitments in 
a different way than do most youth 
today. That's why we called the

Editorials 



"To Sir" Is Progressive Step 

The showing ol the controversial "To Sir With Love" film on 
SMC's campus has been a progressive step nearer to a beautiful 
scenic view, symbolically speaking, to the large majority of stu- 
dents, as was intended, and in contrast, a step closer to a treach- 
erous cliff for a minority. 

This film was introduced by the Student Association as one 
l^ftF of a new group ol "college-only" presentations, with the idea 
that adults and near-adults are mature enough to grasp the ob- 
vious moral and not be led astray by the segments portraying 
dancing and below-par language. 

Naturally, anything that deals with the public EN MASSE 
will inspire some and weaken others. Those that admired "Sir's" 
handling of the slum teens, and as a result will deal with their 
friends and. possibly, students, more patiently are the ones for 
whom the film was meant. The morals presented in educating 



alue. 

Unfortunately, there is the other side of the question. Some 
"could not see the pearl for the shell." For those who could see 
only the medium and not the message, yes, the movie was detri- 
mental. You "see what you look for," the saying goes. 

This is the same group who say SMC is becoming the devil's 
playground when, in reality, its administrators constantly are 
seeking to upgrade its Christian atmosphere, studying its effec- 
tiveness in training students for post-graduate witnessing, and 
the same time, attempting to maintain a high scholastic standard. 

The college and student administrations cannot rashly lay 
down a law which states, "All theater pictures are evil." Neither 
can they say all of the available entertainment films are good. 
To complicate matters of selection, all critics do not agree which 

A 1937 (!) REVIEW AND HERALD given to the ACCENT by a 
concerned critic enumerates the principles of right and wrong in 
motion pictures. The RH editor who wrote the article referred to, 
states that "The very principle upon which these (motion pictures 
with dramatized theatrical plots — is that what we saw?) are con- 
structed is inherently wrong, and cannot be approved or con- 
doned by the church. ... Its themes are built upon human pas- 
sion. It graphically presents, by portrayal and suggestion, the 
sins and crimes of humanity — murder, adultery, robbery and 
every other evil." 

What was "To Sir's" main principle— sex, murder, robbery? 
upon which it was based was none of these, 
one em for his students and 
motivated young people — 



but that of a teacher's devotion 
how he helped them become m 
Christians, maybe? 



The 



tide says further < 



"We c 



» convinced that certain 
motion pictures can be used effectively and helpfully in God's 
cause, for purposes of education, enlightenment, and wholesome 
entertainment" and lists as acceptable, "films which impart in- 
formation and teach truth in any branch of learning." For the 
majority of the audience for whom it was meant, "To Sir" easily 
fell in these categories. 

To stand back and criticize will not help. For a critic to 
judge the message without even having seen the medium is 
worse yet. We all must realize the responsibility in selecting 
fittmg entertainment for college students. It isn't an easy task. 
Those who find fault with the selections made and lose their 
Christian experience over it will probably also lose their faith 
just in associating with SMC's average student— for we are all 
human and make mistakes. 

If we will train ourselves to look, in the light of mature Chris- 
tian attitudes, for the best and not the sin in everything, life— and 
entertainment— will certainly be more worthwhile.

As president of SMC's Student As-

our annual College Days program. 
Our officers have spent many hours 
preparing for your two-day stay. I 
enjoyed planning and coordinating 
the activities — entailing everything 
from prestige to sanitary engineer- 
ing (clean-up committee). If you, 
prospective student, are inter- 
ested in the functioning of the SA, 
y our office on the first floor 
dministration building; we'll 
tell you all about it. I'll be glad to 
help you in any way to enjoy Col- 
lege Days more.

are on campus this weekend. Well 
over half of you will be back here 
next fall as college freshmen. You 
won't become involved in school 
activities unless you go out of your 
way to be active. Here is where 
the Student Senate can become 
very important. It will be a place 
to meet and become friends with 
the active students on campus, a 
place to express your talents, 
whether on Senate subcommittees 
or SA standing <

Being a secretary, in a sense, is a 
lot like being everyone's slave. 
Many hours are required every 
week just to keep the Student As- 
sociation's paperwork in order. 
Part of this paperwork has been 
correspondence with you at your 
academy. Remember? Now we 
can meet when you come to the 
registration tent. Besides getting 
our enthusiastic welcome there, 
you will also get a name badge for 
identification and meals, and a 
schedule of events. Watch it 
closely so you won't end up getting 
left out or going hungry. Mean- 
while, have a good time!

While the SA treasurer has no spe- 
cific duties relating to College 
Days, the first two months of 
school are usually busy ones for 
him. The financial errors of the 
previous year's administration must 
be corrected and their books 
closed. The accounting office rec- 
ords for the SA must be checked 
for possible mistakes. The treas- 
urer must also set up books for 
this year's administration and main- 
tain adequate control over expendi- 
tures, which must not be allowed 
to exceed amounts budgeted with- 
out specific approval. We take 
care of your student dues and sec

Each year approximately 1,000 colleges and universities in the 
United States select candidates for the annual edition of Who's 
Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. 

In selecting candidates, campus nominating committees are to 
choose students who are decidedly above average in their academic 
standing, service to the community, leadership in extracurricular 
activities, and future potential. 

On this campus, the -.indent Senate < hose a group from among 
95 names made available by the registrar's office as being eligible 
(GPA)i from this group recommended by the Senate, the faculty 
selected the final 24 nominees. 

The quota of nominees is carefully calculated to insure a well- 
rounded sample of the student body. It is, however, kept small 
enough so that nominations are confined to an exceptional group 
of students, says H. Pett vs Randall, publisher of Who's Who. 

As evidence of this honor and in recognition of their accom- 
plishments, a certificate will be presented to the Who's Who 
nominees, says Randall. 

A special reference/ placement service is also made available 
to nominees to assist them in reeling post-graduate employment 
fellowships, admission to the Peace Corps, International Voluntary 
Service, or other similar positions.

(Beware of false rumors. Russ

is not a vanished broadway star.) 

Russ's first voice lesson was in 
1961. While studying at Georgia

Sounds just like some of us right

Atlanta, Chicago and New York. 

Then Russ accepted a contract 
with the Mainz Opera House in 
Germany. 

Alone in Germany — studying 
history and art and culture, singing, 
acting, dancing. One night Russ

Opera Bass 
Plans Visit 

Jerome Hines. leading bass of 
the Metropolitan Opera, will be 
heard in concert at 8:00 p.m. on 
Saturday, Nov. 14, in the Physical 
Education Center. 

Hines' program includes Philip 
II in Verdi's "Don Carlos," Colline 
in Puccini's "La Bohcme," The 
Teacher in Rossini's "Barber of 
Seville," and the title roles of 
Mozart's "Don Giovanni" and 
Moussorgsky's "Boris Godounov," 
among many others. 

The six-foot-six basso came to 
I he Metropolitan during the 1946- 
47 season. His voice, dubbed "vel- 
vet" and "golden" by New York 
critics, netted him an immediate 
success. Through the following 
seasons. Hines became equally well 
known for the depth and power of 
his operatic portrayals. 

Hines has sung as soloist with all 
the major orchestras of the United 
States, Europe and South America. 
He records on both the London 
and RCA Victor labels and has 
also become a television favorite. 

Some years ago, he invaded yet 
another branch of the music field, 
when he composed the religious 
opera. "I am the Way," based on 
the life of Christ; then last summer 
lie conquered the world of musical 
comedy in Guy Lombardo's pro- 
duction of "South Pacific."

Faculty Admit 
To Governing 

The question of what role stu- 
dents should play in the decision- 
making [unctions of a college or 
university has perplexed adminis- 
trators and faculty members across 

One year ago, the Board of 
Trustees of SMC faced the same 
question and decided that students 
should and can be given a greater 
voice in govcniin-j the college than 
the few committees they had 
helped on for the last 25 years. As 
a result of that decision, 25 stu- 
dents participated on eight separate 
standing faculty committees last 
school year. 

After viewing last year's success, 
Dr. W. M. Schneider, president of 
ihc college, has appointed 24 stu- 
dents to serve on seven standing 
faculty committees during this 
school year.

Now that the committee has spent hours — days?— working

That's nice — that's really nice. We WANT a production 
which the SA's reputation can ride high on. But can the Programs 
Committee create such a program in the amount of time left 
before the December production date? To lighten the blow, 

iral Senate members pledged their help. 

The Programs Committee took their verdict— and will bake 

r cake — "with a grain of salt." It's a lot like writing a 10-page 
term paper and finding out two days before the deadline that 
you have written on the wrong topic and, furthermore, that the 
paper is supposed to be 10 pages longer. 

Now we will see if the Senate stands behind their demands 
and gives the committee all the help required. The reputation 
of the 1970-71 Student Association government, ironically, may 
hang on this production. 

Reversing plans was no small decision. The program is a 
big undertaking at this late dale, a big challenge. If the Pro- 
grams Committee — with the help of the Senate — can call it by 
a big name and create a program worthy, they are indeed effi- 
cient. Good luck,

A progressive step has been taken with the formation of a

Besides investigating food prices and quality, the committee 
is studying over-all atmosphere. Perhaps students' disappoint-

satisfaction and. consequently, increased patronage as the results 
of the committee's work begin to take effect.

I understand thai you took short- 
hand in 1954, 1955. Did you take 
il to aid you in your classwork? 

No, not really. I just did it for 
the sake of something different. 
One day I was just looking at a 
shorthand book and thought it 
would be rather exciting to learn. 

Dr. Knittel, I was told you read 
quite rapidly. Have you ever 
counted the number of words you 
read per minute? 

My reading rate has been as high 
as 7,000 to 8.000 words per min- 
ute. Of course, it fluctuates ac- 
cording to the material. I was 
fortunate enough to have been part

fourth grade, all of us children on 
the program were reading high 
school and college material. 

One SMC student wanted to 
know if you thought of yourself as 
the 'white -shirt -and -tie, horn- 
rimmed - glasses, seven - year - old 
neighborhood genius' who always 
had a verbose, terminological ex- 
planation for all occurrences. A 

Not really (a short laugh). It is 
interesting, but this is the impres- 
sion given to my wife before we 
ever met. She imagined that I 
would be wearing horn-rimmed 
glasses and have kind of a vacant 
stare in my eyes; you know, that 
sort of thing. She thought that I 
would look sort of wan, pale, weak, 
and thin. I wish I were thin! 
Why do you read your talks? 
Because I consider the way an 
idea is put together and the words 
that carry the thoughts are ex- 
tremely important to the effective- 
ness of the speech. Therefore, I 
choose very carefully how I con- 
struct my thoughts, how my words 
go together, and how I use my 
grammar. I don't feel I could do 
this by memory.

Collegedale Has Vietnam Days;

Through the direct efforts of 
SMC student Ron Hagen and 
alumnus Gary Garner, November 
15 and 16 were declared Vietnam 
Days by Collegedale's Mayor Fred 
Fuller. Two hundred packages and 
$425 were collected to brighten the 
Christmas season of SDA service- 
men in Vietnam. 

The students' motivation was 
genuine. It began in South Viet- 



nam, May 19, 1969. Company D 
was moving along the front line of 
battle on a search-and-destroy mis- 
One of the soldiers was shot. A 
medic rushed forward to help the 
wounded man and was shot him- 
self. In spite of his own wound, 
the medic reached the first man 
and began moving him out of the 
line of fire. Again the medic was 
shot and badly wounded.

O. D. McKee Wants Building Renamed; 
Industrial Education Now in Ledford Hall 



for three i 



SMC's industrial __. 
building, originally named McK.ec 
Hall, was renamed Ledford Hall in 
a special assembly Thursday, Nov. 
12, in honor of SMC's former 
farm and industrial manager C. E. 
Ledford. 

Mr. and Mrs. O. D. McKee, 
owners of Collegedale's McKee 
Baking Company, built the indus- 
trial education building in 1964 
and have now requested that the 
name be changed since the new 
library is being named after them, 
said Charles Fleming, general man- 
ager of the college, during the as- 
sembly. McKee requested that the 
building be renamed in honor of 
some appropriate person. 

Ledford was the first man to 
serve here as farm manager and 
teacher in agriculture and industrial 
arts (1917), said Fleming, "and 
was considered the most knowl- 
edgeable and diversified fanner in 
the greater Chattanooga area," he 
said "He continuously was listed 
on the Honor Roll of the Dairy 
Herd Improvement Association." 

"Without the experienced and 
dedicated help of Brother Ledford, 
the school could not have con- 
tinued." Fleming added. "He 
literally gave of himself; in 1922 

Ledford lost his right arm while 

working with a corn shredder, In paweri-by. 



1930 when a student working with 
him misunderstood instructions, 
Ledford lost his left arm, also in 
the shredder. He continued serv- 

ng without 



word of complaint 

; who has given to 
SMC the 17 best years of his life— 



: privileged 
to pay tribute," s.iid Fleming, "and 
name our industrial education 
building in his honor, the C. E. 
Ledford Hall." 

Following the assembly, a tribu- 
tory plaque was placed on the out- 
side of the building.

Editorials

Riders Meet Drivers 

Those of you who were very perceptive and had long necks 
and ears in chapel the other day, and you who keep up to date 
on your surroundings, now know that the Student Association 
Services Committee has presented for our use or disuse a new 

The Loading Zone, designed to get desperate potential riders 
together with empty-vehicled and empty-pocketed drivers, will 
prove worth much more than the few square feet of wall space 
it occupies in the entrance of Lynn Wood Hall if only students 
will use it consistently — especially for Thanksgiving and Christ- 

; vacations. 

Say, for instance, that you get out of class on the first day of 
:00 a.m. The driver of your ride doesn't get out of 
class until 3:00 p.m. If all drivers and riders would put their cards 
Li the appropriate cubbyholes, the nine-o'c lockers could leave at 
9:01 and the three-o'clockers leave at 3:01 with maximum, smiling, 
happy carloads. 

A service such as this has been needed for a long time. It's 
much easier than knocking on doors, interviewing during dinner 
and soliciting during classes. 

If everyone just walks up and looks at the contraption hang- 
ing in the entranceway and doesn't participate, the gaping holes 
will remain gaping. If you walk up, take a card, fill it out and put 
it in the appropriate box, you can help begin a system which 
every future student will appreciate. 

Press Conferences Prove Entertaining 

Now the press conferences held monthly to facilitate effective 
communication among students and faculty alike are becoming 
more than just informative — they're actually quite entertaining. 

Where else on campus can X-student hear such Alice-in- 
Wonderland stories about buildings appearing and disappearing 
as if overnight; about monster businesses beginning in closets 
and creeping out to engulf the school, city, and state; about the 
Campus Kitchen Affair; SMC tomatoes that don't go bad: a car- 
peted supermarket, etc, etc. 

The way things are beginning to look, the administration 
might do well to put the press conferences at 8:00 Saturday night 
and require student cards for admission, and put the Saturday 
night programs on Tuesdays once a month at 4:00 p.m. It would 
be a rather big jolt, probably, but it's a new idea and new ideas 
aren't always valueless (look at the Wright Brothers' invention). 

Several clubs and organizations on campus have gotten the 
idea already and sent their reporters to press conferences to hear, 
see and tell. That's the way the family planning clinic opening 
and Vietnam Days stories got into print, to cite only two. 

Even if you don't have news to tell, you might want to add 
the press conferences to your schedule anyway — they could get 
your dinner conversation off those nickel quizzes! LH

Bill Cash, sei 
tions major and former Accent 
editor, is completing a "readership 
survey" of Southern Accent read- 
ers. One of the opportunities dvon 
the 500 "randomly-selected" par- 
ticipants was to finish the following 
statement: "If I was (sic) the editor, 
if anything, I would leave out .... 



Apparently the readers of the 
Accent enjoyed playing editor; 
most of them wrote not 'only com- 
ments as to what they would leave 
out, but other suggestions as to 
how they would change the Accent 
— if only "I were the editor." 

Well, just for the record, here 
arc some of the actual responses to 
"If I was (sic) the editor, if any- 
thing, I would leave out . . . Cam-

must like it or it wouldn't be there,

The areas most readers would 
leave out include the sports, car- 
toons, Pasquin uk .imj advcrtisim:. 
However, another reader stated "If 
I was (sic) the editor, if anything, I 
would leave out nothing, because I 
would have to work harder to find 
something equivalent." 

Not only did the readers tell 
what they would leave out, but they 
also stated what they wanted to sec 
more of, or improvements they fcit 
were needed. These include re-

Intermixed with these topics 
were the issues of the "'uninformed 
masses" and the "democratic vs. 
undemocratic process of SMC." 
Many students felt they arc grossly 



scapegoat for this lack of informa- 
tion. Members of the SA govern- 
ment defended their position by 
'■aviiv.: their responsibilities did not 
include spoonfeeding each student. 

Students also expressed concern 
for their own influence and voice 
in the administrative and policy- 
making organizations of SMC. Dr. 
Knittel stated that students are 
represented on many faculty com- 
mittees, and sugecstions can also be 
presented through the SA. Several 
students seemed unaware of this 
fact, felt they were misrepresented 
or felt that student representation 
on committees is a farce.

not resolved during the session.

Physics students Johannes Penz and David Wheeler have made

by atoms in a fusion reactor experiment at Oak Ridge National Labora-

from scrimmage, Beau Fardulis, 
All-star quarterback, and Mike 
Huitt connected on a 40-yard pass 

play. A couple of plays later, Far- 
dulis ran it over for the score. The 
point after touchdown failed, mak- 

Gary Gryte took the ball and 
methodically marched down the 
field, scoring on a 10-yard pass 
from Nelson Thomas to Gryte. 
Their point after touchdown was 
good and the score was 7-6. 

After receiving, the All-stars 
again moved the ball, but their 
drive ended when Buddy Rogers 
intercepted a Fardulis pass on 
Gryte's one-yard line. 

Gryte promptly moved 99 yards, 
with the big play bein^ a 35-yard 
pass reception by Buddy Rogers; a 
15-yard pass from Thomas to Rick 
Griffin made the score 13-6. 

The All-stars again had a drive 
stopped when Buddy Rogers inter- 
cepted another pass, this one from 
Tommy Fogg, All-star halfback, 
to Fardulis. 

Gryte could not score, and the 
first half ended in his favor, 13-6. 
The first half revealed potent of- 
fenses on both sides, with Gryte 
showing the edge in defense by 
intercepting the two passes. 

The second half began with 
Gryte receiving the kick-off. They 
again brilliantly moved the ball, 
mixing plays well between running 
and passing. Gryte himself gained 
valuable yardage on the ground, 
and Griffin scored again on a five- 
yard toss. Gryte now had a sub- 
stantial lead, 19-6. 

The All-stars, now wary of mis- 
takes but also having to play catch- 
up, didn't wait long. On a fourth- 
down play, Ernie Fenderson took a 
pass from Fardulis and streaked 43

The fired-up All-stars defense

running, kept Gryte's defense off-

Women in Pants Is a Matter 
Of Individual Conscience 



Driving Is Privileged Control 

Several traffic accidents in which people were injured have 
occurred recently among SMC students and faculty. Possibly, 
we get so used to rushing from appointment to appointment on 
campus that we forget to slow down when driving, although we 
have placed ourselves in a privileged position of control that 
could encroach upon another's life, if not used cautiously. 

Now that Christmas vacation is upon us, many are planning 
trips as distant as the West Coast— maybe further. During this 
welcome 2'/i-week break from studies, be extra careful to drive 
intelligently. 

D 

One Unifying Concept 

The Christmas season has its own special meaning for each 
person on campus. Unlike last year and the years before, stu- 
dents won't have to worry about facing semester tests as a "Wel- 
come back to campus" when returning. Teachers won't have to 
carry home head-high stacks of term papers to decorate with 
red marks. 

Have you ever tried to look at the advantages of a vacation 
from someone else's point of view? For a few days Dean Spears 
(student affairs) won't have to listen to long lines of complaints 
and excuses, and won't have to hand out great stacks of chapel 
absence letters of warning. Dr. Hanson can turn from the ab- 
stract constructs of math and wrestle, for a change, with simple 
realities such as "eight more days until Christmas" (though he 
might rather express it in base 5). Dwight Nelson, the harried 
Student Services Committee chairman, may, for a few days, for- 
get refrigerators, pantsuits, cars for freshmen and cafeteria menus. 

At the same time, each student and faculty member pursues 
hip own kind of thing, one concept still ties everyone together — 
the real reason for Christmas, the Christ of Christmas. 

Echoing over the campus are the strains of "Silent Night" 
and "Oh, Come All Ye Faithful" broadcast by the radio station, 
inviting all to unite in mind with the spirit of the season, forget 
petty hang-ups which grow to seem so important amid the ring- 
ing of class bells, receiving of grades and the complex system of 
rules and regulations, and return to the "Do unto others as you 
would have them do unto you" guide of our Leader. 

Whatever your personal point of view, when you return to 
campus following vacation, not only a new year will have ar- 
rived, but also refreshed attitudes and courage to face a new

New Age Needs Updated Rules 



A report on the refrigcrator-in-

presented to the administration by

But most important, it was the way 
it had to happen. Every growing

or fur. Every growing insUiuiion 
also requires new rules and policies

ical base) should be updated and

being too much trouble? Student 
icding is growing steadily. Some- 
thing has got to happen — either a 
statement or a change. 

We're asking that these useless 
rules be changed so as to save the 
respect of the students for the other 
existing guidelines which make 
SMC what it is. One bad apple can 
spoil the barrel. It takes only one 
or two strictly enforced unneces- 
sary rules, which are outdated and 
unreasonable, to cause the students 
to lose their faith and respect for 
all of them. Such rules develop on 
the part of many students a slyness 
and semi-rebellion which is not 
easily removed. Students worry 
about how to get 



rules than to understand and re- 
spect the reasons for them. 

We believe that the students 
should have a more active and truly 
representative voice in making the 
rules that govern them. Attempts 
are being made now to do just this 
through the Student Services Coun- 
cil. Unfortunately, the administra- 
tion does not appear to relish the 
idea of listening seriously to the 
student pleas and does so very be- 
grudgingly. 

Why has there been so strong an 
objection to such requests as re- 
frigerators in the dorms, seeing 
that ice chests have been allowed 
for some time; and to pantsuits 
for the girls when several other 
Seventh-day Advenlist colleges and 
many SDA academies allow them; 
and to mixed swimming, which is 
allowed without reluctance in 
grade school and many academies;

Mike Doherty, chairman of the 
Issues Committee signed the report, 
and, according to Bill Boyle, the 
Senate approved it on Dec. 3. No

this issue.

Schneider expressed the opinion 
that "there is little point in pro-

Faculty Votes Down All Pantsuits; • 
Refrigerators in With Restrictions 



The faculty of Southern Mission- 
ary College, in a meeting on Jan.

Student Services Committee to al-

Dr. Schneider said there were 
two main objeclions to the pro- 
posal. One was the problem of 
controlling what may be worn as 
"pantsuits" on campus, and the 
other was the question of whether 
or not the pantsuit is proper for 
general campus and classroom at- 

On the following morning, Jan. 
18, the Administrative Council 
voted unanimously for a proposal, 
also presented by the SA Student

use of portable rcfrigcratot 

residence halls. Tw

refrigerators. 

The first is that they not exceed 
four cubic feet in size, and the sec- 
ond is that the owner of the re- 
frigerator must at any time allow 
residence hall officials to inspect the 
appliance. Both of these restric-

port presented to the Administra-

Computer Didn't Have a Chance 



Computer dating at SMC is annually acquiring 
_rse reputation. Woe be to the hapless hopeful who expected 
to be swept off his/her feet by a potential life partner. 
(~*\ The whole idea of the occasion should have been thoroughly 
* 'explained to the participants. Who could rightfully expect to find 
a scientifically selected date absolutely free? The questionnaire 
used, in fact, was not scientific at all, but just for fun. What 
possible influence could your date's choice of deodorant have 
on your compatibility? Running the questionnaire results through 
the computer only made amateurs expect the results to be ac- 

Maybe some of the campus elite didn't see a whole lot of 
fun in a tall girl-short boy combo, a senior girl-freshman boy 
match, or dumb guy-smart girl (or vise versa). But everyone 
knew and understood that the date you had wasn't necessarily 
your "perfect match." Besides, everyone was in a similar 

On the other hand, many students got a chance to meet de- 
lightful dales whom they may never have known — not necessarily 
because they were The Ones, but because they were new friends 

I dissatisfying evening was endured by those who 
i stood up — by a number, no less — not even by a person. If 
the dates who didn't show weren't willing to take whomever they 
got. then they should not have signed up! The whole deal was 
an elaborate game, and standing up a stranger was an elaborate 
demonstration of poor sportsmanship. 

Perhaps "computer dating" at SMC will eventually evolve 
into something valuable. Until then, it should be enjoyed in the 
spirit ol what it is — unscientific fun-making or, if you would rather 
put it this way. Mix and Mismatch. LVH

6 SMC Students Say 
Missionary Life Busy 



By Bill Cash 

"Siudent missionaries are busy." 
This comment by Joan Murphy 
iould qualify as the understatc- 
ent of the year. 

Joan, a junior math major, is 
one of six student mi-.Mon.inos 
from Southern Missionary College 
still serving >heir terms abroad. Be- 
sides te.iehing four classes at Palau 
Mission Academy — algebra, Iresh- 
111. m English and two sections of 
sophomore English — Joan gives 
piano lessons, serves as sponsor to 
both the Student Association and 



for themselves— "One gets tired of 
cornflakes for breakfast, corn- 
flakes for dinner, and cornflakes 
for supper after a while," states 
Charles. 

Of all the hardships that the six 
student missionaries have suffered 
this year, perhaps the greatest was 
having to leave the people and 
places that they loved back home. 
But, as Donna summarized in her 
letter, "the rest of the hardships — 
the long hours, the budget scrimp- 
ing, the diet — they're just part of 
living."

Fardulis is a game back in sec-

Defoor, with the addition of

Prayer meetings, diesel engine re-

busy when he's not teaching or 
preparing for class. 

Perhaps not quite as isolated, 
but certainly busy, are the four 
SMC student missionaries in Japan.

English Conversational School are 
Donna Taylor and Pat Sampson. 
Donna, a 1970 graduate of SMC, 
and Pat, a senior biology major,

The three usually teach four to 
five hours each evening, and about 
one-and-a-half hours each morning, 
besides studying Japanese three 
hours a week and teaching Bible 
classes on Saturday and Sunday. 
Pat and Donna live Japanese-style, 
even getting around on a small 
Honda cycle. 

Charles Mills, junior communi- 
cations major, and Cliff Hoffman, 
sophomore music major, are Eng- 
lish teachers at the Osaka Evange- 
listic center. Also living Japanese- 
style, they find that one of their 
greatest hardships is having to cook

Oration Contest: 



ATS Says Skits 
Will Be Okay 

The SMC chapter of the Ameri- 
can Temperance Society will have 
its oration contest Feb. 11 at 11 
a.m. in the auditorium, according 
lo Roy Dunn, president. 

Dunn says this is the first year 
that the SMC chapter has allowed 
oration contestants to use dialogue, 
skits and pantomime. 

A panel of judges is now in the 
process of screening the top five 
orators from the rest of the poten- 
tial contestants on the bases of 
coverage and presentation of the 
topic. The panel will also give 
whatever assistance they can to the 
selected contestanls prior to their 
public presentation. 

The student body will judge the 
five remaining contestants on orig- 
inality, content, appropriateness of 
the message for high schools and 
colleges, and how well they present 
their particular aspect of temper- 
ance — alcohol, tobacco, narcotics, 
physical fitness or driving safety. 

Each of the five orators will re- 
ceive $20 and the winner an addi- 
tional $10. 

Other officers of the ATS are 
Ken Matthews, vice president in 
charge of church activities; Charles 
Ferguson, vice president in charge 
of high school activities; Bob Du- 
bose vice president in charge of 
community activities: Judy Dubosc, 
secretary; and Dr. Cecil Rolfe, 
sponsor.

Perhaps the health and dorm service polls could be dismissed 
at this point, since they were not really to prove anything pub- 
licly, but merely acted as questionnaires and probably should 
have been presented under that name. 

Although the SA Student Services Committee seemed to have 
had good intentions, they appear to have only one drawer of 
solutions labeled "Proofs for Disputes" and in that drawer, only 
one subheading— "Random Polls." 

The worst part is, one or more of these polls have been very 
random indeed. Take, for instance, their ACCENT publication 
poll (a terrible degradation of the word). It consisted of exactly 
one question— Do you think the ACCENT should be published 
weekly? and was conducted at roomcheck time by the ; 
When questioned by some of the uninformed i 
dents being polled as to her/his opinion, sevt 
uninformed monitors were so generous as to offe 
for consideration before the pollee "voted." 

This poll had one MAJOR and BASIC problsn 
as logical as something like, "Do you think we should have two 
cafeterias on campus?" Now, how could you POSSIBLY attempt 
to judge that question unless you know why the problem is bsing 
considered, whether there is enough demand, whether it can be 
staffed and whether it can be supported? These very questions 
related to the ACCENT in students' minds may be why the results 
to this "poll" were never made public. Perhaps they didn't sup- 
port the "right" idea. 

Many researchers demand that a valid poll MUST have a 
50% minimum return of questionnaires. Probably the most sci- 
entific survey conducted so far on campus this year even had 
this problem. The ACCENT readership survey, conducted for a 
senior's class project, had only a 32% return. There is also a 
probability that readers responding to this survey were largely 
those with complaints or compliments. The broad majority in 
between had no burden to respond. For this reason, it is best 
to have at least 50%. 

The readership survey did, however, closely adhere to the 
"random sampling" theory, sending questionnaires systematically 
to every 10th ACCENT reader — on campus, in the village and in 
the field. If it were taken of only dormitory readers, for instance, 
it would be badly distorted. 

Finally, if survey results are published, certain information 
about the methods ol conducting the survey should also be in- 
cluded in the report. Population description, sampling method, 
question wording and other crucial elements can be expressed 
in a very few words. This will permit the reader to judge for 
himself the validity of the results. 

By the time students become involved in college studies and 
responsibilities, they should be able to produce something be- 
sides "bubblegum" surveys. They should also be able to tell a 
responsible survey from a railroaded point-proover, and vote— or 
not vote — likewise. Lyjj

Some invited her here, but some could not accept hJ 
because she was a little different and not cut exactly the ^

Some wanted to accept her at certain places and times, 
others felt that she should be excluded completely from oul

Vicki, a graduate of Mount Pis-

enter SMC's speech contest in 
three years, according to Roy 
Dunn, chapter president. No 
stranger to temperance speeches, 
she gave one each of her four years 
in academy. 

Her winning speech, entitled 
"LSD: Thrill or Terror," was 
chosen by a vote of the student 
body who judged the three entries 
on originality, documentation, au- 
dience appeal and overall presenta- 



Vicki spoke of living in San 
Francisco, walking the streets of 
Haight-Asbury, and seeing the 
gaunt and sallow faces of young 
people who have just returned 
from a "trip." "There were hun- 
dreds of others that none of us will 
ever see because they took a trip, 
but they never made it back," she 
said. "To them, that little sugar 
cube was only a one-way ticket." 

This speech will be presented in 
high schools and colleges in the 
vicinity as part of the ATS com- 
munity activities.

SMC AND YOU as it currently stands is recognized by stu- 
dents and faculty alike to be outdated in structure and diction. 
Besides the help of the regular student members of the Student 
Affairs Committee, the SA committee's suggestions are being 
considered. 

These suggestions are a responsible attempt to make each 
sentence, each word of the handbook meaningful and unredund- 
ant. These students have taken into consideration the fact that 
certain basic rules are necessary. Acknowledged, some of their 
proposed revisions are a bit presumptuous, perhaps, but most of 
the recommendations show good verbal budgeting and clarity. 

We hope the administration will recognize the proposad re- 
i attempt on the behalf of some students to 
help in creating a student handbook which will communicate 
to their peers.

Looking over the achievements 
thus far this year, the Student Serv- 
ices Committee has to stand head 
and shoulders above the rest. The 
idea of the formation of such an 
elastic body as the SSC has be- 
come, is traceable directly to the 
present student administration 
During the course of this year, the 
Committee has expanded its activi- 
ties from the book exchange and 
pizza on Saturday nights, to search- 
ing means of making the life of a 
student more meaningful and rea- 
sonable through projects of a 
widely diverse nature. 

Several policy changes were sug- 
gested by the Student Sen.,ic l,\, 
November. These ideas were for- 
warded to the SSC for investigation 
■'■id auion. The result: Refriger- 
ators m the dormitories, and the 
aboriiw "pantsuits" project. The 
latter, on the surface, does not

Cotham fills the vacancy left earlier 

this year by Mrs. Doris Irish. 

Mrs. Cotham is the sister of 
Kenneth Spears, dean of students, 
and Don Spears, manager of the 
Col I eye dale Broom Factory. She 
has lived here in Collegedale for a 
year and a half while working as 
secretary to Dr. Carl Miller, head 
of the four-year nursing program. 

The Cotham family includes four 
daughters — Carolyn. 17, a senior 
al Collegedalc Academy; Jeannic, 
14; Nancy, 12, and six-year-old 
Laurie Ann. Since the family is 
too large for the apartment usually 
provided each dean, the Cothams 
will wait until sometime after sum- 
mer begins to move in; then Caro- 
lyn, after graduating from CA, can 
move in as a dorm resident. 

Why did Mrs. Cotham choose to 
become a girls' dean? "I love 
young people, and have substituted

Berkshire Group Says Return Trip Different 



By Mike Doherty 

Everyone is asking, "How was 
it," "How did the weekend go?" 
And what do you say? Wonderful 1 
Fantaslic! Unbelievable! Bui then 
you stop and say, could these 
words, or any others for that mat- 
omc near describing only 
te of what happened at 
Camp Berkshire and the Intercol- 
:giate Fellowship Retreat? 

The only thing I can say is that, 
}od was there. 

Long bus rides on such trips are 
iever a joy, and the trip up was 
,o exception. People trying to 
tudy, some talking about how 
rowded it was, complaining about 
fumes and the jolting ride, Rook 
games here and there to combat the 
boredom. 

But the trip back, Wow! Even 
though it was so much lonccr 
' ' i, N.Y., to Collcgedale— 
28 hrs,). When we weren't sleep- 
ing, there were small groups all 



over each bus muchi-:. oi.isu-.j and 
studying God's word. At truck 
stops along the way there were 
prayer bands in the parkin" lots, 
especially at the one in Virginia 
where one of the buses broke 
down. And our prayer in that ease 
was answered, the bus was fixed in 
a couple of hours less time than 

On the way back, we made a 
special trip through New York 
City. While driving through the 
Lower West Side a street fight 
broke out right in front of the lead 
bus — some first-hand evidence of 
how badly the. world needs the 
Savior we had grown so close to. 

You're no doubt asking, but 
what happened at Camp Berkshire? 
Frid.iv night ;if(er registration and 
supper, there was a Communion 
Service. The meeting was held in 
the solarium of the hotel. Every- 
one was seated on the floor talking 
with one another. singing and pra\-

was he'd in the small hallways of AU, AUC, CUC, KC, KCMA, and an i

I say "Boo!" when our competitive team members don't even 
show up lor their team's matching session with other clubs. Boo! 
when they haven't even been informed. Boo! when most of the 
questions were written by the SA sponsoring chairman and his 
right-hand man, heavily weighting the final lot of questions to- 
ward the fields with which those two particular students are 
familiar. 

But maybe the rest of the students think that's okay— they 
weren't at the meets to comment, or care. But then, to continue 
the vicious circle, you probably weren't aware that the meets 
were taking place — or trying to take place. 

If you went to one meet, you probably couldn't take a second 
time around. Those who did attend — boyfriends and girlfriends

He "Got Real" • 

To the masses of students demanding "Get real! Get real!" of 
the abundant pulpit-pounders, last week's religious emphasis 
meetings must have been sent directly from above. 

The West Coast preacher's heavon-sent messages stepped 
through the curtain of abstraction and stood on the stage of 
reality. With only an expression or gesture, this speaker led the 
audience to see the "intangibleness" of word traps such as finding 
God by "beholding the Lamb," falling on the Rock," "reaching out 
and taking God's hand." These are pet phrases used constantly 
by Seventh-day Adventists, but to searching college students, they 
are as vague as getting to the president's house by "taking the 
wheel in your hands." You have to know where the car and the 

The speaker's slow, deliberate speech in an unrhetorical style,

emphasize his sincere advocation of a personal, private devo-

There are many great problems 
that face this generation- — (he 
bomb, "ecocide," racial tension. But 
the greatest problem that each 
member of this generation faces is 
the acquisition of autonomy. If this 
can be obtained, many of the major 
ills that exist may be cleared up. 
Aristotle said "know yourself," 
SvneCLi said "control yourself," and 
Christ said "give yourself." These 
are the three steps to be taken in 
becoming autonomous. 

The purpose of higher education 
is to become personally acquainted 
with yourself. You ask then, why 
do I study survey of civilization — 
the story of kingdoms that are 
separated from me by hundreds of 
years.' Why do 1 stud\ science, 
math and religion? What has this 
to do with knowing myself? The 
answer: everything. Only by know- 
ing the slory of the travail of man, 
the common points of all of man's 
systems, the way man has con- 
ducted himself throughout his his- 
tory, can you know the forces that 
silently work on you as a tiny mem- 
ber of a large and complex society. 
Only by the study of science do you 



take the free-will offering of your- 
self and give it to others for you. 
This final phase links up all the 
previous phases. Through the power 
of Christ, true knowledge can be 
found; through the power of Christ, 
true contentment and direction can 
be found; and through the power 
of Christ alone can true service be

Head Librarian Supports

The SA Senate constructed a

The Senate resolution read, "We

Major revisions made by the

book and a new philosophy stated 
at the beginning of the book. Two 
of the first big suggestions were:

change was that no approval ofl

The advice of that Roman phi- 
losopher, Seneca, to "control your- 
self," is directly related to the first 
step. After you have come to know 
yourself, after you have come to 
discover your identity, a content- 
ment should settle in. It is not 
a contentment through apathy — 
rather, a contentment that is de- 
rived by a clear understanding of 







Within these bounds that you htive 
discovered, you will be able to 
work with great zeal toward a goal 
that you have received through 
your knowledge of yourself. You 
will live, day by day, not allowing 
anything to interfere with your pur- 
pose, especially immaturity. For 
the acquisition of maturity comes 
through security and experience 
that is derived in the period of 
knowing yourself. 

The third and final step is giving

committee set up this year, by 
the Student Association under last

for the purpose of meeting the serv- 
ices and activities which fall outside 
the realm of the Social Committee,

Ludington Answers His Phone

"Long distance calling Darryl

This very surprised SMC student 
heard the above quote via satellite 
from the Southeast Asian Union, 
asking if he could come immedi-

Hamilton Explains 
College Ed Abroad 



John T. Hamilton, executive di- 
rector of the Adventist Colleges 
Abroad program, was on our cam- 
pus recently. Following are his re- 
sponses to some frequently asked 
questions about Ihe program. 

Q: What is the ACA program 

A: The Adventist church spon- 
sors six colleges in foreign countries 
that are affiliated with ACA. Semi- 
nar Schloss in Bogenhofen, Austria; 
Seminaria Adventista Espanol in 
Valencia. Spain; River Plate College 
in Argentina; Seminaire Adventistc, 
Colkmtiev 1- ranee: Seminar Marien- 
hoehe." Darmstadt, Germany; and 
Middle East College, Beirut, Leb- 
anon, which was recently closed 
due to the tensions in the Middle 

Q: What are the benefits of going 
to school in a foreign country? 

. A: Spending a year in another 
society develops an nnderMaiuling 
of the people of that country that 
cannot be gotten in any other way. 
Then there is the obvious advantage 
of learning a foreign language 
fluently. Elder Pierson. GC presi- 
dent, recently stated that the SDA 
church's need for trained linguists 



Q: How 

A: Room, board, 

insurance, and transportation fronL 
New York for a year at the school| 
in France or Germany totals S 1 8 
For the schools in Spain and A 
tria the price is SI 695. If the i. 
dent wishes to include a 15-daJ 
tour of Europe, which is held bef 
fore the start of the school 
there is an additional cost of S20t)| 
The cost of a year at River P 
College in Argentina is $1795, 
eluding plane fare from 'Mk.„„ 
Florida. These prices are less than 
the cost of a year at an Advcntis| 
school in the U. S.

Faculty Members Comment On 
Student Services Committee 



Interested Candidates 

SMC's Now Generation mixes the demands for more power - 
and influence with apathetic comments that "nothing is going 
on around here." 

If we think nothing is going on now, just wait until we see 
the results of our growing apathy. America's reputed tendency 
not to want to get involved is reflected at SMC in skimpy filing 
for 5A offices. 

Some potential candidates have the attitude that "somebody 
else could do the job better." The actual truth is, however, that 
the person who could do the job best is the person who is most 
interested — not what he's done in the past, but with what en- 
thusiasm he laces the future, whether he wants the job for what 
he can contribute (work) or what he can get (glory). 

The direct way to a more active, more exciting campus is 
to get involved. There are channels of activity that still lie un- 
touched. 

Time is a problem often named that inhibits participation in 
Student Government and club activities. Studies are very im- 
portant, but we must also recognize the tremendous practical 
training in leadership and organization available to the student 
who will get out of his rocking chair and act his age, or maybe 
even get out of his study carrel for a little break. 

We should investigate our own values and, next week when 
the chance comes to determine next year's student leadership, 
support the candidates who are going to show us where the 



Worship vs. Entertainment 

Sabbath School programs on the SMC campus have taken 
several experimental forms this year. Almost all of them have 
varied from the usual speaker-on-platform-to-audience-on-floor 
approach. Sometimes the audience is wrapped around the 
speaker's station in a 360° circle, sometimes in only an arc, and 
occasionally just in the usual row-upon-row fashion. 

Changing the pattern of the audience seating, however, is 
not the only experiment tried this year. We have seen the solem- 
nity of the recent dramatic presentation of the story of a song; 
last Sabbath we got a taste of joviality, junior-camp style. 

Variation from the usual staid forms is good, but when does 
a presentation cease to be a worship service, a tribute to God, 
and begin to become an entertainment session? Last Sabbath's 
program was definitely on the entertainment side and if a simile 
can be forced — if the program had been a movie, it would defi- 
nitely not have been labeled "adult." 

With the talent available on campus, it seems possible to 
present a more upgraded program with a deeper message like 
that of the former Sabbath School program, a program whose 
message would not be detracted from but would be enhanced 
by the mode in which it was conveyed, # 

Probably the key to improvement is more planning ahead. 
Certainly a more collegiate worship program could be planned.

Committee's work on their final

about the SSC were requested from

the students in a positive and serv- 
iceable way, but the only things 
that 1 have known of them doing

Bill Garber,

However, I don't know too much 
about the services the SSC has been 
performing. In short, they haven't 
affected my life much, but then, 
I'm not a student. 

Dr. W. M. Schneider, college 
president: The structuring of a Stu- 
dent Association SSC was not ill- 
conceived. For tolal effectiveness, 
however, the members of such a 
committee must consider a broader 
base of operation. A committee 
should not be judged by its first 
"round of experience.

college relations: I think that the 
SSC is an excellent idea and has ex- 
cellent potential, but that it should

can necessarily be implemented,

Hanson, professor 
of mathematics, handbook com- 
mittee: I feel that they are con- 
cerned about the handbook and 
that their concern is warranted, al- 
though they reacted as I would 
expect students lo react. Their re- 
port, lacking the vantage point of 
experience, was a little idealistic to 
work. They did a good thing, how- 
ever, by pressing the handbook is- 
sue to a head, as we faculty mem- 
bers get a little bit set in our 'ways. 
They did about as much as students 
could do. 

Mrs. Genevieve McCormick, as-

met with them twice and, from my

they could be more persuasive in

Meager List of Candidates

before the Senate hid nominate,! 
candidates to fill the rest of the

who had filed by that time are

The many rumored candidates

more publicity on the part of the

a drastic increase in the present

Rouse Wins Next SA Presidency With 



51% 



By BUI Cash 

Stan Rouse, polling a clear ma- 
jority in a three-man race for presi- 
dent of next year's SA administra- 
tion, was elected last week to that 
post. A junior theology major, he 
won 51 percent of the 597 votes 
cast for his position against Dennis 
Ward and Harry Rimer. Because 
Rouse won the clear majority, there 
is no need for a run-ofl between 
the top two contenders. 

Ron Nelson, junior history ma- 
jor, uncontested in his bid for the 
vice-presidency, was approved by 
84 percent of the voters. However, 
the 95 disapproving votes against 
him were the highest recorded by 
any unopposed candidate. 

Voters selected Carol Adams as 
their next SA secretary over Joyce 
Holland. A sophomore music ma- 
jor, Carol polled 81 percent of the 
votes in her category. 

Jim Morris, junior business admin- 
istration major, outpolled Charles 
Pierce in their race for the SA 
treasury. Morris collected 58 per- 
cent of the votes. 

Three of the four candidates run- 
ning for editorship of the four 



»ML publications were unopposed. 
Randy Elkins, sophomore commu- 
nications major, received 89 percent 
of the vote, as he was elected edi- 
tor-in-chief of next year's Southern 
Accent. Next year's Southern Mem- 
ories will be edited by Sandra tech- 
ier, freshman art major, who to- 
taled 94 percent of the 602 votes 
cast for her position. Judy Strawn, 
sophomore communications major, 
collected 92 percent of the voters 
as she was elected editor of next 
year's Joker. 

In the election's closest race, 
Cheryl Oliver received 15 more 
votes than did Andy Woolley as she 
was elected editor of the 1972 
Legacy. Cheryl's 296 
percent of the 577

Davis to Raise Money 



igle pi* 



By Norma Carlson 
Carving a niche out of the ji 
wilds of Nicaragua to build a 
medical -educational center serving 
the Mosquito Indians of its eastern 
coast is the objective of eight stu- 
professors of SMC 






who will leave for this 
American country in June, 

To raise funds for the first phase 
of the three-year project, Russell 
Davis, a local actor-singer, will pre- 
sent a benefit concert Saturday 
night, April 10, at 8:00 p.m, in 
SMC's physical education center. 

Davis, a graduate of Red Bank 
High School and the University of 
Tennessee at Chattanooga, is cur- 
rently enrolled at SMC. He says 
the concert will be composed of 
both classical and modern music. 
He has appeared in opera houses 
throughout Europe. 

The Nicaragua mission project is 
being directed by two SMC campus 
organizations — the Missionary Vol- 
unteer Society and the Student As- 
sociation. This is the fifth year that 
SMC has been sponsoring students 
as foreign missionaries from periods 
of three summer months to one 
in the program, known offici- 
s the Collegiate Overseas Mis- 
sionary Exchange. 

According to Mike Foxworthy, 

SMC and director of the project, 
10 people are going to Nicaragua 
this summer and will be working in 
the outlying vicinity of Puerto 
Cabezas. This is a city located on 
astern coastline of the coun- 
try, known as the "Mosquito Coast." 



The area has a tropical ruin cli- 
mate — the wettest in Central Amer- 
ica. It is a region of malarial 
swamps and low plains that arc 
drained toward the Carribbean Sea 
by three rivers. One of these, the 
Coco River, is 300 miles long. Fox- 
worthy stales that one of the aims 
of the group is to obtain and equip 
a medical launch to travel this 
river, treating the natives who live

Indirect Influence 

Changes will come to SMC next year and one of those 
changes will be in top leadership — college president. Dr. 
Schneider has accepted a West Coast post (see interview, p. 3), 
back to the country from which he came (as academic dean of 
Pacific Union College). 

An influential or crusading person should not ever be able 
to look back and say "Everyone liked me." And neither can Dr. 
Schneider. For instance, many students still mourn the negative 
vote handed down on the pantsuits on campus "issue." Others 
felt a little bit left' behind in some of his assembly lectures. 

Yet those who dealt directly with Dr. Schneider recognize 
him for the intelligent man he is and respect him for standing 
for what he belives. Any who had complaints (and many did) 
were welcomed to his office (and some were invited) for discus- 

His influence was an indirect one. Many students would 
still not recognize him if they passed him on the campus. But 
even they know that during the last four years we have never 
felt "the boat rock," but have felt a certain security that SMC 
was being guided intelligently. 

Though Dr. Schneider may not have the satisfaction of hear- 
ing some students praise his administrative decisions now, in 
about 5 to 15 years those presently dissatisfied may look back 

educational and social progress at SMC. 

Then, at that time. Dr. Schneider will think back to SMC 
I ^ and how it wasn't all so difficult after all. In fact, it was very

Voting for a candidate just be-

sports personality or lives down 
the hall from you is worse than 
not voting at all, from the stand- 
point of improving Ihe SA. In other 
words, do your part to make the

Itm <jut,i:-*ri Wh.it ■■• Ihe philo-o-

What, in reality, is the philosophy? 
and, What should the philosophy, 
in reality, be? 

The latter question is much sim- 
pler than the former. This institu- 
tion should provide for the growth 



; physical, mental and spiritu 
segments of the student's life. It 
should emphasize his need to be 
more than the "mere reflector of 
other men's thought." It should 
encourage the development of an 



compatible with its philosophy. This 
college has attempted to produce 
such an atmosphere with the book- 
let SMC and You. The failure has 
not been a miserable one; nonethe- 
less, it has been a failure. The lan-

UNION TAKES TROPHY— from p. 

The Worthington Cup awarded 
Union College is a "roving trophy," 
staled Elton Kerr, president of 
SMC's SA and coordinator of the 
tournament. Last year the "Soy 
Bean Bowl," (Kerr's nomenclature 
derived from the trophy), was 
located at Andrews University. 

Kerr revealed that at the April 
24 Adventist Intercollegiate Asso- 
ciation Convention, the SMC dele- 
gaiion will propose some changes 
in Intercollegiate College Bowl 
The main proposal

finest example of the propriety of 
law is the dccologue. But the deco-

fence in the people of God as to 
fence in evil. Therefore rules ought 
lo take this example and fence in 
the evil among us and not atlempt 
to "preserve" a revered "peculi- 
arity." For peculiarity is result of 
the way we live and not the rules to 
which we pay lip service.

seven other delegates. 

Delegates at the spring conven-

Therefore, instead of wasting 
their time putting up absurd p 
tcrs, riding about in the back s 
of a gaily-decorated, noisy c

forms, candidates and their c 
paigncrs should devote their t

The rest of my remarks may then! 
be considered an open letter of sugT 
gestion to the chairman of n 
year's Election Committee, SA v 
president-elect, Ron Nelson. 

The SA should devote three gen-l 
oral assemblies to the election. The| 
first, one month previous 
election, would be one in which thej 
current SA officers would give i 
brief summarization of the prc-l 
requisites for holding, responsibili-[ 
ties and benefits of their officesj 
This would give those who

election, would be an open ques-f

voters and candidates. 

The Elections Committee should I 
run an extensively advertised "Get I 
out and vote" campaign. To facili-[ 
tate a larger voter turnout, they also I 
should open polling places during I 
the evening hours in 
tories and the library. 

The preceding suggestions, if put I 
into action by the SA Elections I 
Committee, would improve the elec-f

I have a feeling that someday in the

arc not structured the same in

travelogue. 'Trailing Lewis and 
Clark to Oregon.'' It will be pre-

This Lewis and Clark adventure 
has taken two years of research and

curred in the 160 years since its

honors in Romance languages and 
with special courses in exploration, 
geology and history, he became pro-

Thomas Jefferson. 

The producer of the film, Thayer 
Soule. decided on his career at the 
age of seven, after seeing an illus- 
trated lecture by an author-explorer. 

Thrilled with the idea of talking 
pictures, he promptly tried it, his 
first shows consisting of postcards 
projected on a sheet in an attic 
theater. Before he was 10 he had a 
Brownie camera and took his first 
movies while still in high school. 
By his freshman year in college, he 
was earning pocket money with his 
programs.

among youth today. 

But we have always had extremes 
to avoid. Mustn't our colleges 
change to meet the changim; time..' 

We have no specific instruction 
that we must accept one mode of 
life, whether it involves fashion or 
other areas. We must, however, 
avoid the extremes. There are many 
things that need to be adjusted over 
the years. On the other hand, I'm 
not assuming all change is for the 
of the school or for the stu- 
dents. Change is interesting and 
mportant, but change can also un- 
lcrmine a very fine program.

appreciated by the constituency of 
this Union, and also by Adventist 
believers throughout the country, 
SMC will have great days ahead. 
But mark it well, if the image of 
SMC is changed to permit the loss 



of faith in the hearts of our consti- 
tuents, SMC could be in serious 
trouble. 

What is SMC's image? 

Well, it seems to he from what 
I have understood from people

that wc have earnestly sought to

church members in the area. 
The idea for this project oc- 
irred to Bill Garber, instructor in 
journalism at SMC, as he was re- 
ing Steps to Christ, he said. 
Feeling that the most appropriate 
for such a project would be

lea for its appeal and feasibil- 

jy. 

The interest was there, but the 
5,400 the project would cost was 
ot. Though financial plans were 
ncertain. other aspects of the pub- 
cation were investigated. Unadi- 
ious approval and permission for 
he undertaking was secured from 
the E. G. White Estate.

the Ooltewah Seventh-day Advent- 
ist Church and S1000 from the 
Georgia-Cumberland Conference, 
the project was presented at Friday 
night vespers, March 19, and the 
following day at church. Students 
pledged S780 and the church mem- 
bers S2900. With pledges reaching 
S5680, the wor*d was definitely 
"go." 

Bill Sue, a local artist, was hired 
to do the illustrations, design and 
layout. The supplements 
livered to the newspapers on April 
6. From idea to finished product— 
28 days. 

On the back of the supplement is 
an offer and order blank for a Bible 
correspondence course and the 
books Steps to Christ and Desire of 
Ages. A post office box has been 
reserved in Chattanooga for all cor- 



respondence resulting from ihe sup- 
plement. 

Garber suggested that it will be

Jeane Dixon/EGW For Public Market 

Roman Catholic prophetess Jeane Dixon and Seventh-day 
Adventist prophetess Ellen G. White are to be compared in a book 
for the public market next spring. Rene Noorbergen, author of 
"Jeane Dixon — My Life and Prophecies" and author of the up- 
coming book, revealed this fact in assembly last week. 

Finally the church, through its aid in this project, is broaden- 
ing its evangelistic outreach and approaching the public with 
EGW counsel in their language and terminology. For so long, 
EGW books which have escaped from among the four walls of 
our own denominational book stores have been cast aside by 
non-SDA's after a glance al their "packaging," as potentially 
heretical literature and, therefore, offgrounds for public consump- 

Noorbergen's journalistic ministry specializes in a subtle 
approach, outlining the work of "Mrs. D" and explaining her 
prophecies. Then, EGW is introduced after the audience becomes 
acclimated to discussing prophecies in a secular sense. Condoned 
by the While Estate and General Conference, Noorbergen's new 
book should have tremendous public readership. He is planning a 
sales program which he expects will put the book on the bestseller 
list. 

This next year will be an important time as national and politi- 
cal events continue to fall into the pattern outlined by the Bible 
and EGW. The entry of this new book to the public market should 
act as a catalyst in breaking denominalional barriers to warning 
the world of what is in store. LVH

Rain isn't the only thing falling 
out of Ihe sky around CoMeged.de. 
Sunday. March 21, three sludenls 
from SMC bailed out of a small 
privale plane lo become skydivcrs. 
This was their most exeilin-j step in 
ihe skuh vmg course they have been 
i.ikin:; at the Hixson Airport since 
in January. 
Brcnda Cox, Ric Tryon and Jeff 
Howlands were the first three of six 
SMC students to jump. The entire 
class consists of 25 members, 18 of 
whom arc from Ihe Hixson area. 

Twenty-six-year-old Jim Godsey 
of Hixson leaches the course. He 
learned to skydivc while in the 
riny and has made approximately 
17 jumps, giving him a C rating 
a jumpmasler in an A Ihrough 
scale on which D is the highest. 
What is included in the training 
a student receives before his first 
jump? Godsey begins by leaching 
everyone how to take PLF's (para- 
chute landing falls). Next they learn 
positions to use while falling from 
the plane. Packing the chute cor- 
rectly is emphasized because of the 
dangers of malfunctions. 

Godsey usually gucs h:> students 



those who want to learn. The course 
costs approximately S40 to com- 
plete, but as the jumper advances 
beyond that, the cost rises with 
each jump he makes. 

Brcnda Cox, a junior education 
major who has now made her first 
jump, is thrilled with the results. 
"WOW!" she says, adding that 
there arc no words to describe her 
experience. She has made definite 






■ her 



number of jumps. 

Ric Tryon, a senior theology 
major, says "The scary part is the 
few seconds before leaving the 
plane, but after you'i

Editorials 



Optimism, Idealism and Reform 

Optimism, idealism and reform seem to be the overriding 
characteristics of the incoming ACCENT administration. Perhaps 
these are traits of each new staff, and certainly no staff would 
begin without them. 

By optimism and idealism, I refer to the editor-elects proposed 
buddy-buddy attitude between the editorial staff and the advisors. 
He hopes for an "air of confidence" and a dissolution of the "us- 
them" altitude. 

All Adventist college editors seem to have a less-than-satis- 
factory experience in finding their paper's role on the campus, 
however, and this problem seems to affect the staff-administration 
relationships. Part of this confusion is engendered because of the 
double public relations-student voice role. 

How will the personality change of next year's paper, if it goes 
to a weekly, affect the student-administration relationships? Will 
there be any significant changes? 

If the ACCENT does succeed in going to a weekly, it will be a 
significant step forward — a step that ACCENT editors for several 
years have been hoping for. This goal will be realized in the 1971- 
72 school year if "political" involvements do not impede the action. 

For an ACCENT administration with such an apparent good 
beginning, great things may lie ahead. L V H 



At the rcccnl Adventisl Inter- 
collegiate Association Convention, 
the priorities of the Adventist stu- 
dent associations were brought into 
question. It was asked if these 
groups were nol in actuality miss- 
ing the boat when they attempt to 
bring about social change on their 
campuses. Also questioned was the 
effectiveness- of these same organi- 
sations in planning long-range pro- 
grams. 

The student associations of the 
13 North American msiimiions of 
higher learning operated by the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church have 
nol by any means missed (he boat. 
In questioning bws made conccrn- 



was these organizations that initi- 
ated, by and large, the student mis- 
sions program. It was these same 
oriMni/.iiions- that conducted the 
Berkshire retreat. Whenever Stu- 
dent action look place, student as- 
sociations were there coordinating 
the programs. These same organi- 
zations established the Adventist 
Inkn ollcL'iate Association a year 
ago to help structurize student rep- 
throughout North 
coordinate open 



for clarifying the reasons that rule 
the actions of our college authori- 
ties. In the past it was easy to say 
"because I said so." It is no longer 
a simple question getting a simple 
reply. We arc told that the final 
generation to inhabit this earth 
must be anchored in their beliefs. 
So if wc question the nature of our 
educational environment, please 
reply reasonably. Don't pull up the

castles. I would hale to answer any

The student associati

The major problem of our col- 
lege student governors is the brev- 
ity of their administrations. Each 
year a new leader for these organi- 
zations has been selected, and, 
therefore, the personality of the 
particular SA changes. Personali- 
ties aside, the general goal has 
been the same: Meet the social and 
reliiiious needs of their constituents. 
On our campus, contrary to most 
other Adventist colleges, the Stu- 
dent Association has been separated 
from the Missionary Volunteer So- 
ciety. Therefore, this association 
has dealt with secular issues in the 
main. However, this secular group 
did appropriate SI, 000 respectively 
to the student mission's program 
and the Way Out. 

in closing, let me state that the 
rifts between student administra- 
tions and college administrations — 
where they exist — are not un- 
reachable. A renewal of com- 
munication between student lead- 
ers and administrators will go a 
long way toward healing bureau- 
cratic wounds. Prerequisite to this, 
however, is respect on both sides, 
regardless of age or experience.

SOUTHERN ACCENT editor

attitudes and names mo:t oj lii*

Randy, what experience have 

j had thai you feel qualifies you 

be editor of the SOUTHERN 

\CCENT for the 1971-72 school 

Well, at the beginning of this 

the journalism department of 

MC started a newspaper in the 

— of Collegcdale, Ool- 

icwah and Apison. Currently I'm 
irving as one of the edilors of Ihis 
newspaper. The experience I've 
o . ined with a weekly paper such as 
[his makes me qualified to run the 
Accent in the same manner — as a 
,'cekly. I've also kept in close con- 
.„.. with this year's Accent, so I 
have a knowledge of the problems 



Ga. This is the same company 
that prims This Week for us, and 
they do a very fine job. 

Why don't you continue having 
the ACCENT published at the Col- 
lege Press? 

The main reason we hope to 
leave the College Press is money. 
We can print 27 issues of next year's 
Accent at the Summcrvillc News 
for about S2000 less than the 16 
issues of this year's Accent. 

In using a less expensive process, 
what difference in quality will ap- 

Thcrc will be no real difference 
in quality from the current Accent, 
but we do plan to use a cheaper 
grade of paper, since generally the 
Accent is read once and thrown 
away. The quality of a newspaper 
is not based on the grade of paper 
it's printed on. but the quality of 
the articles that are printed on its 
pages. 




By reporting the 
and also many of the things that 
arc not now reported — like news 
of the various campus clubs — we 
will have no problem in filling a 
weekly paper with. good and per- 
tinent reading material. I think 
with a weekly paper we can also 
tap some of the writing sources

on various topics, wo will possihly

guess how some of our prominent 
faculty members feel about certain 

How do you plan to finance a 
weekly paper? 

Next year's Accent will be fi- 
nanced in the same manner as all 
previous Accents— hy appropria- 
tion from the SA. Some may feel 
that by going to a weekly paper, 
the cost will soar out of sight; I 
would just like to say that next 
year's Accent budget (which has 
alrcadv been approved) will be 
S400 less than this year's budget. 




topic, it will be made into the form 
of a news story and be run in the 
regular form. The editorial p.icc 
carries a section entitled "Letters 
to the Editor." In this place and 
in this place only, will someone not 
connected with the paper be al- 
lowed to express his opinion. I 
think it only fair to do it this way 
since this creates a common de- 
nominator for all to use in express- 
ing their opinions. From time to 
time, members of the college ad- 



out, The problem stems from the 
lack of communication between the 
two opposing forces — students and 
administration. My attitude toward 
my sponsor will be one of respeel 
— respect for judgment and respect 
for authority. I will look at the 
college administration in the same 
light and will expect no les

going to use, mistakes will be in- 
evitable. I feel that if directions

all involved." I think that there 
should be an air of confidence be-

looking for? 

Now I mainly need reporters. I 
have about three staff reporters 
lined up at the present and would

eight reporters we can handle the 
major news stories on campus.

Considering my own qualifica-

strongest areas arc managing and

year for the weekly newspaper This

siderable success both in the writ-

SMC's gift of $1,685 to "Way-

lars from other schools and 

churches, lias helped to bring the 
Voice of Prophecy youth evange- 
lism program back to its feet finan- 
cially. 

Under the direction of Doug 
holey, .SMC's MV has raised $685 
for the Wayout. Foley hopes that 
SMC students will contribute 
enough additional funds to make 
this an even thousand dollars for 
the MV before he sends the money 
to VOP. The SA is giving $1,000.

"The Wayout is the most effec- 
tive program to reach the youth," 
said Foley. "Finally, our church 
has developed a program that 
strikes home to the young people 
of this generation." 

As a result of Foley's interest iti

H. M. S. Richards, Jr., VOP di-

that the students of Southern Mis- 
sionary College can sec the need of 
this important youth outreach. We 
do appreciate the funds that have 
been raised so far by students, fac- 
ulty members and friends for the 
Wayout program," he said. 

Dave Hartman, a VOP treasurer, 
says that because people arc rally- 
ing to the aid* of the Voice of 
Prophecy, the money picture has 
greaih improved. 

Norman Matiko, field service di- 
rector for the Bible Correspondence 
School, says "all systems arc go" 
for enrolling people in the Wayout. 
A short time ago 5,561 young peo- 
ple were enrolled tn the Wayout 
course during a 32-hour period on 
Daytona Beach in Florida. 

Letters have been written to all 



ing people to enroll youth in the
