Dissonant Notes! 



OAK LEAVES 1977 — 19 




Harmony 

A compatability of feelings 

Not necessarily the same, 

But compatible 

As is day with night: 

An eternal circle 

Within which all fit 

Unified. 

A oneness of life with living, 
Yet a life not lost among many 
nor estranged from mankind 
But discovered with others 
and for others; 
As is spring with winter 
New life for old hopes. 



20 — OAK LEAVES 1977 



Dear Mom and Dad, 



Wow! Can you believe another 
whole year is over? Sometimes, I feel 
that school will never end and that I'll 
never get all my books back to the 
library — then, before I know it, finals 
are over, and seniors are graduating! 

I was thinking back to high school 
last night. You two were so supportive 
of me as I chose a college. Do you 
remember those days — long trips to 
visit college after college, those eternal 
talks with every admissions office 
available? And yet you never 
complained about doing it for me. 

And then, after I had applied here, I 
remember how thrilled you were on 
the day I got my acceptance letter. You 
were as happy as I was. And how 



about that summer of shopping and 
packing and shopping some more until 
— finally — it was August and time to 
go! That was a hectic time! 

That first month here at Meredith — 
Oh, how I used to cry whenever I got a 
letter from you. I missed you so much, 
and it was such a help to know you 
missed me, too. But you were always 
so sure I could make it, OK — in fact, 
you were often more sure than I was! I 
remember how you said that you were 
proud of me; that made me want to 
work hard so I wouldn't let you down. 

Do you remember those blind dates 
I used to write about? 1 could just hear 
you laughing when I described them to 
you. Weren't they riots!? You always 



seemed interested in the friends I 
made, the guys I met, and the places I 
went. I often wished you were here so 
I could tell you all about them! 

Who can believe so much time has 
passed? I barely can! Yet, you always 
seemed to know I could make it. I 
know I don't often say it, but I 
appreciate you both very much. You 
are the ones who have made my 
college years — with all the joys and 
hurts — possible. I love you — please 
keep your faith in me, for I need it. I 
am eternally grateful to you. 

With Love 
Your Meredith Angel 



to 




To all the Moms and Dads of Meredith Angels, we dedicate the 1977 Oak Leaves with love, pride and thanks!

For the Love of Life 



Most of us perceive him as The 
Administrator, the Man with the 
Title, the Insensitive Manager. 
Obviously, most of us do not 
perceive him fully. Although he is 
intent, busy in his office before the 
secretaries arrive in the morning, 
he is not inaccessible; the influence 
of his easy-going manner is 
obvious in an office which is 
casual, friendly and open to all. He 
seems never too busy to help a 
hysterical student who has just 
discovered she hasn't enough 
hours to graduate in May; he is 
always ready to share a laugh with 
anyone around. Because of his 
interest in Meredith students, we 
see him at senior music recitals, 
basketball games, tennis matches, 
and college plays. He impresses us 
in many cases by knowing our first 
names and by remembering even 
our interests and hometowns. In 
his free time, we see him enjoying 
the Friends of the College concerts, 
playing tennis with friends, 
attending Stewart Theater 
productions, and keeping pace 
with the ever-changing literary and 
historical world. If we visit a 
certain church, we find him a pillar 



Miss Wilson, Counselor. 



of the bass section of the choir; his 
devotion to the Christian faith is 
evident in his teaching of a Sunday 
School class. And yet, these 
academic, social, community, and 
church affairs never replace his 
first committment — his family. 
Never is he too busy to plan family 
outings, to ski with his daughter, 
to camp with his son, to take long, 
peaceful walks in the woods or 
along the beach, to spend that 
extra time which makes his family 
a special part of his life. 

Compassionate . . . patient . . . 
honest . . . open . . . witty . . .

manner . . . respecter of persons 
. . . believer of Christian 
principles . . . searcher for truth 
. . . sharer of wisdom . . . seeker 
of challenges . . . husband . . . 
father . . . friend . . . historian 
. . . counsellor . . . advisor . . . 
teacher and yes, on his bad days a 
little miserable and grouchy like 
everyone else. We all have our 
favorite administrator who is 
special! The administrator is more 
than the Man with the Title: he is a 
lover of life.

We're Human Too! 



While swamped by insurmountable 
assignments, tests, and papers, it is 
hard to imagine members of the faculty 
as humans but rather as beings 
existing in that realm of science fiction 
that never tire and most certainly are 
never touched by emotional strains 
which make working impossible. But 
as strange and unusual as it may seem, 
faculty members can at times be heard 
expressing fears, joys and desires that 
have a vague resemblance to those 
expressed by students in the "real 
world." 



When surprized by snow, in the 
middle of the school day, professors 
could be seen running down the halls 
worriedly deciding who would pick up 
their children. Students passed rumors 
of faculty sleeping in their offices to 
insure that classes would be held only 
to discover that the class had already 
been canceled and the faculty member 
last seen strolling into the sunset with 
a cardboard box over her head. 

On other strange occasions one 
discovers the faculty's "other life." 
They can be heard discussing topics 



ranging from whist parties to organic 
gardening or even the latest Sherlock 
Holmes movie. Others have activities 
to which they turn when it has been 
"one of those days." Some indulge in 
puns on the Canterbury Tales, while 
others enjoy political activities, writing 
historical novels, doodling and ice 
carving. 

Students may doubt it and even try 
to refute it, but faculty are human too 
— they just like to keep the students 
puzzling.

A Senior's View 
of the "Big 
Snow" 



The lake glistened as I approached it, 
excited to see the thick ice that had 
formed. Amazed, I stood momentarily 
to soak in the scene. I fearfully started 
out, noticing the minute cracks on the 
surface. However, the timidity quickly 
left as I confidently slid across the 
grayish-white mass, feeling free and 
released from the pressures that often 
engulf me. 





Every senior must make sure her name is on the old Beehive 
before she leaves Meredith. 

Cathy Christian and Cathy Pickett take 

time out to enjoy the first big snow of Lori Husbands and Frank Laney exchange notes and laughs 

their life at Meredith. after class.

Making A Home 



The home economics majors of 
Meredith spend three and a half weeks 
in the Ellen Brewer House learning the 
skills required to manage a home. So 
six competent girls get together to 
accomplish the job. Everything should 
go smoothly, right? Wrong! Lots of 
little things happen. For instance, what 






about the time the pressure cooker 
exploded sending a jet of steam and 
chicken broth to cover the ceiling? The 
girls struggle together through three 
and a half weeks of fun, tired legs, 
good food, and all sorts of "little 
surprises." But when each group 
leaves, there is a closeness which has 
grown within that family of six who 
have lived together, learning to care 
about one another very much.

Where To Now? 



Ambivalent feelings permeate the 
senior's life. At once we find ourselves 
excited and frightened by the 
unknown beyond graduation. For most 
of us, a new lifestyle awaits, whether it 
be marriage, a career away from family 
and friends, or graduate school with all 
the uncertainties. Can we succeed on 
this level? Along with feelings of 
apprehension for the future, we 



discover our ambivalent feelings for 
Meredith, our soon-to-be past. We're 
weary of our undergraduate load and 
long for something new; yet, 
simultaneously, we are sad to leave the 
security and predictability of Meredith 
College, and we will miss our friends 
here. For each of us after graduation, 
there will be new friends, new places, 
and new challenges. We must meet 
these challenges with the knowledge 
and personal development we will take 
from our education at Meredith 
College.

DnThe 
Occasion Of 
Her Birthday 



Hs the day when Floss was born 
3n a dark and dreary day. 
We found her standing in the trash 
And she said, "Take me away!" 

nler life was oh! so lonely, 

She had nowhere to - go. 

She had no toes or fingers 

\nd they had taken away her "fro." 

She had just about surrendered 
-ier life was about to end. 
When lo and behold she looked about 
\nd there she found a friend. 



We swept her up. We rescued her, 
We brought her back to life. 
We carried her to Heilman dorm, 
And ended all her strife. 

Today fair Flossie is happy, 
She has meaning, she has purpose, 
She answers the phone, is friend to all, 
And she never tries to usurp us. 

Flossie is a friendly soul, 
The nice and sociable kind, 
And even if you yell at her, 
She doesn't seem to mind. 

Floss goes to all the parties, 

Where she is always the belle of the 

ball, 
She laughs, she jokes, she plays the 

games 
She is the queen of our hall.

Memories 



As we look back on our years at 

Meredith, we reflect .... 
There's a place for us 
We're stars at Meredith 
Though we'll all go our separate ways 
We will cherish our college days 
Friendships, sisters, 
We have such memories together 
Close to our hearts forever. 
When we graduate 
We'll leave our love with you 
Hold on tight to these precious years 
Full of happiness, full of tears. 
So long — Farewell — Good bye! 




Even at graduation, few of us can bear to forsake our girlhoods completely.

} ress That Bar 



It was hardly love at first sight. The 
ought of having to go to the 
ychology lab every day to feed and 
landle" a rat was unthinkable at first, 
pecially after he tried to bite the first 
ne we saw him. But he was kinda 
te, so there was hope. After a few 



weeks, he seemed to look forward to 
seeing us come every day. We learned 
a lot from him, especially when trying 
to get him to bar press. After eighteen 
hours of trying everything to get him 
to bar press, we learned that if you 
starve anyone long enough, he'll do 
anything. And he did — finally — press 
that bar!

Cornhuskin' 76 

The year of 1976 was not only our 
nation's 200th birthday, but it was also 
an election year. Just as each candidate 
sought a victory, so it was with the 
Junior Class's fanciful rendition of 
election year in Cornhuskin' 76. 

Voting Times have come at last 
You better make your mind up fast 
That crucial day will soon be past 
Voting Times have come at last. 

Who is your choice? What's his name? 

Where's he from? 

Does he smile? Does he trip? Do you 

"love" him? 

Will he do the best job of all? 

Jimmy Carter or Jerry Ford? 

Jimmy's said he will find jobs for us; 

Does that mean even Meredith 

alumnae? 

Will Jerry makes us proud again? 

When we must pay so very much for 

education. 

So we'll exercise our right to vote 

Sending ballots through the mail. 

Let's remember our sights have been 

raised. 

We're assertive; we're not frail. 

Here we go to the polls acting out our 

new found rolls 

If we only could make up our minds. 

We will read 'cause we need to know 

which man best can lead 

So our nation will not fall behind. 

We all read the news just to help us 

choose 

Which one we really want to shine — 

GO STATE! 

We have heard their claims; they all 

sound just the same 

'Cause we've always been fed such big 

lines. 

Tippacanoe and Tyler too, Oh I like

Living With 
Freshmen 



What's it like being the "older 
woman" on a freshman hall? Junior 
status among the new arrivals means a 
continuous bombardment of questions 
— about courses, faculty, and 
fraternities — some of which we 
cannot answer ourselves! 
Homesickness and roommates who 
decide after two days that living 
together is impossible are among the 
early problems facing a freshman hall 
proctor suite. During orientation, how 
do you explain what a credit hour is to 
an already-frightened freshman; or 
how do you impress upon the girls the 
importance of studying for that big 
biology test — when you don't want to 
study either? Living with freshmen is 
definitely not all endless questions and 
calldowns; it's also lots of fun. 
Enthusiasm and spirit abound in these 
dorms, and the upper-classman apathy 
disappears among the activities on a 
freshman hall. Having the 
responsibility of lending a helping 
hand to our little sisters has definitely 
been a boost to our junior year.

A Milestone At 
Meredith 



One of the highlights of our Junior 
year at Meredith has been the arrival of 
our college class rings. This 
momentqus event serves both as an 
affirmation of how far we have actually 
come and as a reminder of just how far 
we have yet to go. As we Meredith 
Juniors received our class rings this 
year, we did so with mixed emotions. 
We hope that the onyx rings will serve 
as a constant reminder of our years 
spent at Meredith College and that, 
like the rings, our memories of 
Meredith will endure forever.

Dear Mom and Dad, 



I need your help desperately! Here I 
am — a second semester sophomore 
and I still haven't decided on a major! I 
know you both always wanted me to 
be a math teacher so I went to see Dr. 
Davis. He was really nice, but he 
thinks I'm a little behind since I 
flunked baby math — twice. Maybe I 
could major ;n Religion . . . Dr. 
Cochran is so-o-o good looking! He 
really excites me — do you think it's 
missionary zeal? On the other hand, 
Biology might be a more sensible 
choice, but those earthworms give me 



the creeps. And Psychology is out of 
the question too — messing with those 
rats in Poteat would make any sane 
person neurotic! As a last resort, I 
seriously considered English, but they 
offer all the good courses during the 
Young and Restless. Do you think 
maybe if you talked to Dean Burris, he 
would let me major in UNDECIDED? 
Your Meredith Angel 
P.S. Could you please send me $10.00 
in your next letter? Everybody's going 
out Friday night for a pizza and a-uh 
coke.

Sophomores celebrate their first victory in Stunt. 



Stunt 1977 

Enthusiasm, talent, and good 
directing led the Sophomores to victory 
in Stunt 1977. The antics of the 
contestants in the Late-Adolescent, 
Post-Teenage Sophomore Miss Pageant 
cumulated with the crowning of the 
new queen, Miss Craw County. Other 
events included the return of the first 
Miss Social Security, a rousing song 
and dance routine by the rejected 
contestants, and the Late-Adolescent, 
Post-Teenage Sophomore Miss theme 
song, sung by Masters of Ceremonies 
Pert Barks and Mark Meow. Well 
Sophomores, we finally made number 
one!

IN MEMORIAM 

CAROLE LYNN KNOTT 

1957-1976 



Good-bye! 
Big Sisters 



As freshmen the class of 1979 
exposed frayed threads of fear, 
questions, loneliness, and inhibition. 
But then, Big Sister, you knocked softly 
upon our locked doors and entered 
with open arms and a warm smile. 



Fear became excitement, questions 
were patiently answered, loneliness 
became eternal friendship and 
inhibition became willing 
assertiveness. 

After two years of growing together 
as intelligent women, you will depart 
from us; perhaps never to be seen 
again. But the gifts you have left to us 
to greet our little sister class with are 
engraved upon our hearts: love, 
courage, and an inquisitive faith.

The Saga Of A 

Sophomore 

Adviser 



Preparation. Hot August days. Crash 
courses in the basics of counseling. 
Anticipation. Snowed under with 
arientation information. Sophomores 
advising freshmen. In August, I looked 
forward to establishing friendships 
with my group of advisees. Now in 
February, I enjoy maintaining those 
friendships begun last fall. I like to 
refer to them as "my girls". Visiting on 
their halls and meeting their friends is 
important to me. The frustration of 
registration, the pizza parties, the 
crises of home and boyfriends are 
ongoing memories. Can you imagine 
how grandmotherly I now feel as I 
encourage "my girls" to become 
student advisers?

Cornhuskin' 



The freshman Class spirit rallied to 
its Cornhuskin' theme of "The Old 
South." Netting third place in their 
Cornhuskin' debut, this Freshmen 
Class will doubtlessly "rise again" to 
even greater heights in Cornhuskings 
to come. 

Oh the old, old South sounds very 

excitin' 

Just think of them grits and picking 

that cotton 

Looking back on them years 

Is a life of its own. 



Only the Southerners have such 

memories 

Plowing them fields and hunting, too. 

They worked hard and fought like 

warriors 

The South will live for years to come. 

Come gather, let the freshmen tell you 

'Bout the olden days 

'Bout the Southern belles and all their 

menfolk 

And their great Southern ways. 

Oh the good old South sounds very 

invitin' 

But I think today is more excitin' 

Look ahead, for the best is yet to come,

Big Sisters, 
Understanding 



Because we, as freshmen, feel very 
much like fish out of water on our 
arrival at school, Meredith has 
assigned to each of us a "Big Sister," a 
member of the Junior Class. Our Big 
Sister possesses more ease of 
movement in the scary new college 
situation, and she can give us the 
feeling of security and belonging 
which we long for here. She welcomes 
us with a smile and a cheery note. She 
answers our questions with 
understanding. On birthdays and 
holidays she may remember us in a 
very special way. For all these little 
things, Big Sisters, we appreciate you. 



Student 
Advisors, Older 
and Wiser 



For a freshman embarking on what 
is probably her first extended stay 
away from home, nothing can be more 
encouraging than the friendly face of 
her student advisor. Innately, we 
possess the knowledge that only 
recently that same confident face has 
experienced the sensations we now 
harbor. As we enter for the first time 
our home away from home, we find 
the gift that she has left in that barren 
room. We find in her the answers no 
catalog can disclose. It is her 
knowledge of the process of 
registration and book purchasing 
procedures that inspires in us a sense 
of security; she alone seems to have the 
ability to arrange a schedule. So, as a 
freshman I feel that I. speak for the 
entire class when I say, "Thank-you, 
student advisors."

The very words "English 
Composition Conference" send cold 
tremors through the heart of even the 
bravest freshman. These English 
conferences seem to be a continuing 
tradition at Meredith. Without a 
doubt, a freshman considers herself 
truly a freshman only after she has 
survived her first conference, a 
twenty-minute span of time that feels 
like an eternity. Horror stories of 
revision of the first revision of a paper, 
and of page-long diagrams have been 
passed to us freshmen by sinister-eyed 
sophomores. How can it be that any of 
us survive? It is only by that faint 
gleam of hope ahead; if we can 
survive, then next year it will be our 
turn to spread those Meredith tales to a 
class of innocent and fear-stricken 
freshmen!

The Twig 



Letter 



"y out! 

Unused privilege gf« 



Dear fellow member of the 
Meredith Community: 

As one who was given 

responsibility to write this 

"y outlined 

urge 

on our 

write 



The Twig, the weekly newspaper of 
Meredith College, is a vital learning 
organ and a vehicle for keeping the 
community informed. Students are 
encouraged to contribute through news 
coverage, letters, features, and special 
columns. The staff is open to everyone 
and no journalistic experience is 
necessary. 

Editor Maggie Odell views the 
newspaper as "the medium through 
which total campus involvement may 
be expressed." Highlights of this year's 
Twig included extended political 
coverage in the election year, intense 
coverage of campus happenings, 
features on special students and 
projects, and investigative reporting on 
campus problems. 

Through features and editorials, the 
Twig explored racial problems, 
feminism, campus security and 
adademic concerns as well as including 
lighter movie reviews, cartoons, and 
photo essays. Staff includes: 1st row — 
M. Victorian, K. Farlow, M. Odell, V. 
Jayne, N. Newton; 2nd row — K. Dale, 
M. Holinshead, D. Doss, S. Godwin, S. 
Moore, E. Seckell, R. Bowers, C.

Oak Leaves 

The Oak Leaves began the new year with a 
bang. More photographers and staff members 
volunteered than ever. But, before long they had 
dwindled down to a faithful few. 

With too little time after classes and work and 
too much to accomplish, the 1977 Oak Leaves was 
designed. For some there were hours of taking 
pictures and retaking pictures that weren't right. 
There were missed appointments and endless 
hours of darkroom development. For others there 
were lots of designing and at times a little less 
thinking. There was hunger and lots of worry. 
But finally — there was the OAK LEAVES of 
1977! 

Overall the staff tried to give the Meredith 
yearbook a new design and more complete 
coverage of what went on in the Meredith world. 

Oak Leaves staff — Above: Robin Reich, Soph. 
Editor; Sarah Ruth Cralle', Editor; Saribeth 
Anderson, Assis. Editor. Below left: Sara Cotey,

SGA 

Every student at Meredith College is a 
member of the Student Government 
Association and is expected to support and 
contribute to all projects, activities and 
meetings. The association at Meredith 
promotes an atmosphere of honesty and 
integrity through self-government. An 
honor code signing ceremony was held for 
all transfers and freshmen to emphasize 
this aspect of Meredith tradition. 

Phyllis Smith served as the Student 
Government president for the 1976-77 term 
which was a quiet one in terms of vast 
changes. However, Health Awareness 
programs were successful as was active 
involvement in the November elections. 
Probably the most important effort of the 
year was the move to make all of the 
previous years honor code and legislative 
changes practical and working aspects of 
the Meredith community. 
Members of the executive board are: D. 
Matthews, J. Hart, D. Doss, B. Leavel, K. 
Frazier, N. Reid, C. Pickett, P. Smith, C. 
Truelove, B. Rowlett.

Day Students 

Waking up a bit earlier and getting 
ready a lot quicker set the daily pace 
for most day students. Oftentimes 
that includes fixing your own breakfast 
and even feeding a family before 
dashing off to an 8:00 class. Before 
class is time for nonchalantly picking 
up the "news" of dorm life; after class 
is time for deciding between camping 
out in the library, enduring the drone 
of the Student Center, or hurrying 
home for a little peace and quiet. Day 
students take an active part in the 
Meredith community and sponsor 
many activities for their group in an 
effort to become a unified body. These 
include many meetings, parties such as 
the Christmas party and the 
non-resident luncheon. For the first 
time, this year the day students 
awarded a non-resident outstanding 
award at awards day. This year the 
award was presented to Debbie 
Matthews, president of the day 
students. 

For a day student there is always that 
extra effort needed to make a place and 
a time to squeeze in studying between 
the responsibilities of meals, 
housekeeping and a family. Meredith 
provides a stimulating world within a 
world. It is sometimes frustrating, yet 
always fascinating and exciting to be a 
very real part of both. 

Members of the day student 
executive board are: Seated — B. 
Mangum, D. Matthews, president; J. 
Kenyon; Standing — P. Yelvington, S. 
Wheeler, D. Hankins, L. Benton, L. 
Olson.

For the Good Times 



Clubs and organizations are an 
important part of the Meredith 
tradition. There are Student 
Government organizations which 
govern the life of the community and 
there are music organizations for the 
inspiring musicains. From 
publications to service clubs there is 
something for every Meredith 
student. These groups provide a 



chance to mingle with fellow 
students with similar interests or to 
pursue a personal hobby. No matter 
what club or organization a Meredith 
Angel decides to become a part of it 
gives her the opportunity to learn 
from experience, share memories or 
enjoy a picnic. And along with all of 
the good times comes a place for her 
— somewhere to belong!

Volleyball 



Under the direction of Mrs. Helena 
Allen, the volleyball team had its first 
winning season with a record of 11 
wins and 10 losses. Members of the 
team were Susan Daniel, Mary Jane 
Ludt, Mary Margaret Steele, Karen 
Patseavouris, Patrice Strifert, Mryna 
Olcese, Ami Gray, Betty Joyce, Julie 
Slade, Heather Ingle, Pam Gerace,

Susan Daniel and Mary Jane Ludt felt 
that their team was young, but very 
experienced and talented. 

In the state tournament, the 
Meredith volleyball team won the first 
match against Winston-Salem College 
and lost the next two matches.

Gymnastics 



Coach Frank Jeffries led his 
gymnastics team to a rewarding year. 
Plagued by illness and injuries, the 
team did not win in competition, but 
did have an opportunity to learn much 
about the sport. They traveled to Fort 
Lauderdale to a Florida training clinic 
which provided a chance to meet other 
gymnists as well as improve their skill. 
Members of the team include Sharon 
Harper, Annette Michelli, Diana 
Swann, Jane Harris and Teri Edwards.

The Meredith tennis team placed 
fourth in the spring state tournament.

Betty Parker, Linda Ix, Susan Koonce, 
Leigh Welborn, Lynn Whitley, Meg 
Randle, Allison Brooks, Tammy

Golf 

Mrs. Helena Allen coached the newly 
formed golf team this spring. Team 
members are Nancy Rosenbaum, Liz 
Wester, Beth Cobb, Rene Holcomb, and 
Kay Powell. St. Mary's lost to the 
Meredith girls twice during the season. 
However, in the Duke Invitational 
Tournament the Angels lost. 

Softball 

The Meredith Angels posted their 
first winning Softball season in their 
short history (8-5). The team has been 
playing on a club basis but will climb 
to varsity status for next year. Dr. Jack 
Huber, Mrs. Helena Allen and Dr. John 
Holt helped coach the successful team.

Intramurals 

Provide 

Competition 



While some Meredith women are 
very athletic and compete on a team 
there are other Angels who simply 
enjoy the opportunity for competition 
and recreation. This chance is provided 
by the Meredith Recreation 
Association through the various 
intramurals held between dorms. 
There are basketball, tennis, volleyball, 
swimming, pool and many other forms 
of competition among the students. 
Unfortunately spirit was hard to arouse 
and some events had to be canceled or 
forfeited due to lack of interest. But 
many students welcomed the 
opportunity for a little fun with their 
classmates.

& 




Orientation 



A First Week 

College — for students arriving on 
campus for the first time this was a 
long awaited adventure. But, they had 
no idea just what an adventure they 
were in for. Voting for the first time 
and becoming involved in world affairs 
are big steps, but entering Meredith 
during Orientation week is an 
accomplishment all in itself. 

From the minute the new freshmen 
arrive they are caught up in a whirl of 
new faces and new activities. With the 
help of a student advisor and faculty 
advisor, somehow the freshmen make 
it through the hectic week. From the 
picnics to the formal reception given 
by President and Mrs. Weems, the 
freshmen see the many sides of 
Meredith for the first time. 

Then the long lines begin. Lines for 
buying books (if you can figure out 
which line) and lines for registration 
for classes and for making ID cards. 
Even a line to give all the forms to the 
computer. 

After wondering if you will ever 
really make it and crying on the phone 
a little with Mom, you really begin to 
feel like a Meredith student. And then 
the realization hits that this is only the 
beginning. All of the returning 
students are back and there are 800 
more names to learn and big sisters to 
meet. But, most of all — classes are 
tomorrow!

Cornhusking 




170 — OAK LEAVES 1977 




The Night of the Stars 



With enthusiasm, determination and 
a lot of hard work, the classes joined 
together with their spirit to bring 
about another successful year of 
Cornhuskin'. 

Amidst southern belles, corsets and 
southern drawls, the freshmen 
surprised everyone with a second place 
win. 

The Olympian stars from the athletic 
sophomores proved to be the most fit 
in the four night raids in Vann and 
Stringfield. 

The juniors advertised the election 
year in true form contradicting the 
erroneous assumption that women 
know nothing of politics. At least they 



know the party mascots. 

But all due credit should go to the 
seniors, the Stars of the night, their 
101 % participation and first place wins 
in all but one event represented their 
outstanding performance. 

From the traditional dinner of foot 
long hot dogs to the untraditional 
celebration at Charlie's afterwards, the 
hard work was worth all the fun and 
excitement. To outsiders this week of 
water fights and strange costumes in 
hallways made no sense at all, but to 
the Meredith Angels this was a week of 
enjoying just what the sisterhood of 
Meredith is all about.

Come to the Cabaret! 



In the dark behind the curtain, we 
stand unmoving and quiet. Hurried 
whispers and last minute adjustments 
add to the controlled panic around us. 
The crew scurries by, checking and 
rechecking props, positions and the 
time. We catch each others eyes and 
grimace, trying to surpress the 
excitement building up like thunder. 
We grab hands and squeeze with the 
mutual affection that the whole cast 
shares. Hours spent together sweating 
in leotards and cutoffs, cursing, 
laughing, practicing and practicing, 



has made us bond together like 
survivors from a plane crash. Beth 
glides by as Sally Bowles, the leading 
role, a flash of silver trailing the steps. 
Nancy the director is already in the 
audience. Places, places, faces freeze. 
The dark around us reddens and the 
music begins. The curtain is up. 

Michael appears in a lighted circle 
and time, place, and people are 
changed like a dream. It is the eve of 
the Nazi occupation, the city is Berlin 
. . . forget your troubles, Come to the 
Cabaret!

Christmas 



That Christmas Feeling 



Here it is a week before the first 
semester finals and you're wondering 
how you are going to cram three and 
one-half months work into one little 
week and you open your door one 
morning and find a surprise from your 
Secret Santa. Thus begins the 
Christmas traditions at Meredith 
College. Meredith traditions have 
always been special. 

The Christmas concert presented by 
the Chorale, the Rennaissance Singers, 
the Ensemble, the Orchestra and the 
Handbell Choir never fails to bring a 
lump to throats as students sit amidst 
the music in the Rotunda. The chorus 
singing at the last worship service of 
the semester is similarly meaningful. 

But of all the Christmas traditions, 
the dinner is the most memorable. 
How can one forget the long dresses, 
the ice sculptures, special buffet, the 
Christmas tree and most of all Santa 
Claus and his elves? Afterwards the 



spirit continues when students go 
caroling to their professors homes. 

Another very special tradition 
during the Christmas season is the 
Moravian Lovefeast where the Birth of 
Christ is celebrated through song, 
prayer and sharing the Moravian buns 
and coffee. The true hope of Christmas 
is felt when the candles are lit and 
raised while John 3:16 is recited. 

Finally, don't forget the Christmas 
Dance held in Belk Cafeteria. This is a 
special night when men invade the 
campus and add to the Christmas 
feeling. 

And just when you feel like you are 
going to explode from the academic 
pressure, you have a Christmas hall 
party and find out that your Secret 
Santa is actually a good friend down 
the hall. After somehow making it 
through finals, the Meredith Christmas 
spirit is, finally taken home with you.

The Bears and Stars Rush . 



Bears and Stars — that is all that is 
seen on the Meredith campus during 
the traditional rush week. An 
introduction to the service projects, 
sponsored by the service 
organizations known as the Phis and 
Astros or the Astrotekton and 
Philaterian Service clubs. 

Rush week is a series of activities 
sponsored by the two groups. Each 
club has its own special day to 
promote enthusiasm. The halls are 



elaborately decorated with the 
mascots, symbols and special gifts 
from each organization. When the 
freshmen awoke the next morning 
there were cookies from the Astros 
and bears from the Phis. At night 
each society had refreshments and 
entertainment on their special day. 
This was a special year as on 
decision day, students were 
encouraged to go Phi or Astro as 
before, but their entering the club 



was on a different basis. For Astros, 
applications were screened and only 
certain members inducted. To be a 
Phi all members who join must keep 
a certain point ratio or be dropped 
from membership. When all the 
rushing was over and the last star 
and bear removed from the cafeteria, 
there were 54 applications for Phis 
and 34 new Astros.

Sophomore Jubilee! 



Here they go again! For one more 
night the Meredith students put aside 
books to show the side of creativity 
and spirit that is rarely seen under the 
mask of books. Once again for a week 
of practice State boyfriends are rejected 
and the outside world wonders if the 
Angel Farm has indeed finally gone 
mad. 

In reality the tradition of competition 
between classes was underway once 
more under the disguise of Stunt 1977. 

The freshmen class began the antics 
with a take off on social life in the 
fraternities at nearby State and 
Carolina. Showing no lack of 
enthusiasm, sophomores followed with 
their view of a "Late Adolescent, Post 



Teenage Sophomore Miss Pageant." 
The country beauty sang her way into 
the hearts of bird lovers everywhere 
and was crowned the reigning queen. 
Meredith's legendary "Angel Farm" 
came to life in a witty skit by the junior 
class that left the audience in "seventh 
heaven." Last, but never least the 
seniors skit of well known television 
personalities in a news station brought 
to close the '77 Stunts. 

Judges proclaimed the Sophomore 
class the winners for the first time in 
years. To their uncontrolled delight the 
sophomores were proclaimed the 
victors for their creativity, costumes 
and original skits.

Founder's Day 




Alumnae Return 

Founder's Day brought the return of 
Alumnae and Trustees to the Meredith 
campus. For the seniors, it was the first 
time that they would march with their 
caps and gowns and for the faculty it 
was a day of seeing former students. 

During the morning a program was 
held in honor of the founding of 



Meredith College. The speaker was 
Frank Cary, chairman of the Board of 
IBM. After the ceremony, friends 
renewed aquaintances over a buffet 
luncheon. The highlight of the day was 
the dedication of the Wainwright 
Music Building which is the newest 
addition to campus.

"Come Blow 
Your Horn" . . , 

Auditions for Meredith's spring 
production of Neil Simon's "Come 
Blow Your Horn" found many students 
convincing themselves that they could 
manage the tight schedules, hasty 
meals, and sunrise study hours. Nancy 
Truesdale, faculty director aided by 
Kim Dale, assistant director made the 
difficult decision of cast members for 
the comedy. 

As the rehersals progressed, 
Southern drawls became Jewish 
intonations, a clumsy gait transformed 
into a high heeled slink and freshmen 
antics became Metropolitan 
sophistication. The two months of hard 
work, cooperation and dedication 
culminated on opening night with 
gratifying applause and favorable 
reviews. Closing night brought a sense 
of achievement, lasting friendship and 
many good memories.

Junior-Senior 




'4 Syy 



On the Day of the Junior Senior 



"Come on Sam, pass it around 
more." I wonder if the band is 
supposed to be better this year. I hear 
they are having it at the Woman's Club 
or something like that. Just so they 
play a lot of boogie music and a little 
slow — 

Should I have gotten her that "We're 
going to have to play better defense 
than that" pin corsage or maybe it 
should have been a wrist corsage? 
Maybe it won't get squashed and stick 
me in the process. "Sid's open, Sam." 
Hope it matches her dress. Reckon I 
should have asked her what color it is. 
You know how particular the Angels 
are. 

Dinner at Darryl's ought to be great 



with her suite. I'm just glad that they 
didn't want the Angus Barn. "I'm 
clear, I'm clear." I should have checked 
on how much it will cost. "Ronnie, at 
6'3" you ought to be able to stuff it by 
now." Wonder how much it will cost 
for the two of us. Maybe I shouldn't be 
working up such an appetite. "Pass it 
to Walt." 

"Got to go guys. I'm supposed to 
pick her up in another hour. I wouldn't 
miss all the girls looking out of the 
windows for anything." I sure hope I 
have a clean shirt. "See you next week, 
if I'm not captured by a member of the 
Angel Farm at the Junior Senior 
tonight.

Parent's Weekend 




188 — OAK LEAVES 1977 



Oh, to be an Angel for a Day 



We look forward to the weekend 
designed just for parents at Meredith. 
We can actually view what our 
daughter always writes home about. 
But what 1 can't figure out is why she 
thinks the rules are strict . . . and that 
delicious food — why does she need so 
much money to spend outside of 
school on meals. All the activities were 
so much fun. Of course we enjoy 
seeing our daughter and meeting her 
classmates that she always talks about. 



And that boy she is dating from State 
— maybe I shouldn't have met him. 
Anyway, we saw the Aqua Angels 
perform and the dance group and 
Children's Theater. The dinner with all 
the other parents was great, but best of 
all was meeting all of her famed 
professors. It is hard to believe that 
they are as hard to get along with as 
she says. Oh, if it were only possible to 
be young enough to be a Meredith 
Angel once again. 




OAK LEAVES 1977 — 189 



Play Day 



Crazy Days 
are Back! 

Once again Meredith has gone a 
little crazy. It is not unusual for 
everyone to wonder what the campus 
is up to this time. As a matter of fact 
Raleigh is about used to it and this 
time it was the annual Play Day. 

Students and faculty rolliced and 
cheered at this annual festival held 
each spring. A time to try out all those 
muscles that have been saved up all 



year arrives 



ith events such as three 



legged race, the sack hop, tug of war, 
and other competition between dorms. 
Then everywhere you see Meredith 
students and faculty return to their 
childhood days as dorm members and 
faculty challenge each other to fishing, 
pool, card games, tennis and even hula 
hooping. 

At the picnic of foot long hot dogs, 
popcorn and candy apples, the overall 
championship was awarded to Vann 
dorm. The Duke of the day was Dr. 
Samson while the duchess-ship was 
shared by Mary Jane Lockamy and 
Flossie Mae Wooten, the faithful 
mascot. The day ended with the 
traditional country carnival and finally 
tunes from the Smokin' Grass Band. 
Students clogged the night away in the 
courtyard as the day of relaxation came 
to an end. Meredith will always remain 
academic centered, but for a while 
Shakespere was replaced with jacks 
and the community became one to 
welcome spring with hearts of children. 





190 — OAK LEAVES 1977 



Special Activities 



Something for Everyone 



Convocations, retirement dinners, 
0077 day and sandwich seminars — 
these are just a few of the many 
activities that go on at Meredith every 
day that are vital to the students. For 
instance, Dr. Huber's sandwich 
seminars provide a chance to relate the 
world and current topics to the 
classroom. Held every Friday, groups 
came together to discuss the topic of 
the week. 

Then there was 0077 day. To the 
amazement of some students, the 



student center was jammed with 
people from the outside world. In 
reality it was a day sponsored by career 
planning to help aquaint students with 
job opportunities and openings. 

There are many cultural events and 
various trips and activities sponsored 
by groups on campus. Each student 
has a special happening to remember 
that added to her special year at 
Meredith. For there is something for 
everyone! 




192 — OAK LEAVES 1977 




Speakers 



Every few days it seemed as if 
another speaker was being announced 
as coming to the Meredith community 
to lecture. Many were speakers at 
monthly convocation while others were 
guest of classes, RSW and special 
weeks such as Religious Emphasis 
Week. Because of voluntary 
attendance, the size of the audiences 
were usually few in number. However 
the speakers discussed issues of 
importance and added to the cultural 
awareness of those that attended. Such 
lecturers included Margaret Mead, 
Betty Friedan, Shana Alexander, Lisa 
Sergio, Sol Mendelovi and Barbara 
Marx Hubbard. 

Convocations and lectures are 
unique traditions of Meredith, giving 
her a source of unity, intellectual 
growth, stimulation and expression. It 
is a vital aspect of the Meredith 
education.

A Campus Filled with Friendly Faces 




Of all the happenings at Meredith 
none do more to make Meredith a 
community than the students. There 
are many faces to the Meredith 
women. There are the joys of 
friendships, the look of contentment at 
the finding of a familiar face in a 
classroom. There is the serious 
expression of a major test coming up 
and the apprehensive look of a blind 
date. Who can forget the look on the 
face of the angel just engaged or the 
look of concern on the face of a 
roommate listening to the problems of 



love? 

Whatever the facial expression on 
the student, there is the overall 
expression of harmony in the Meredith 
community, a harmony produced by 
that realization that whatever enters 
your world today, you have the 
support of that special friend . . . the 
friend who is always there when you 
need her. Meredith has many 
traditions, but the most treasured 
tradition of all is the love and harmony 
generated between the students.

Class Day 



Farewell 



5:30 a.m. . . . The sound of the 
alarm piercing the early morning 
silence ... it can't be time already 
... we must be crazy getting up at 
this hour to pick daisies . . . surely no 
one would even miss us if we just slept 
on . . . but — this is a day of tribute to 
our big sisters ... a mingling of 
excited voices, sleepy laughter, and 
half opened eyes as we gather in front 
of Johnson Hall . . . sloppy jeans and 
tea shirts . . . coolness of the morning 
air . . . still dark . . . piling into cars 
and heading out in different directions 
. . . sky begins to lighten . . . Oh 
please be a pretty day . . . eyes 
straining to catch even a glimpse of 
patches of white along the road — 
anywhere . . . wow, a whole field of 
daisies . . . grass, heavy with dew 
. . . soggy tennis shoes . . . on to 
another location . . . turning down 
bumpy farm roads . . . can't we just 
use black-eyed Susan's instead? . . . 
finally friends sitting among tangled 
heaps of daisies and ivey . . . knoting 
and cutting a chain . . . hurrid change 
into dresses . . . feelings of 
admiration, love, and sadness as 
seniors march in . . . the big sister 
song somehow sung with a lump in 
our throats . . . the reading of the class 
history . . . recognition and Millie's 
speech . . . the senior gift of the 
gazebo and finally our tribute of 
daisies to the class of '77 . . . teary 
eyes ... a helpless feeling . . . 
they're leaving us . . . hugs, 
goodbyes, more tears — and 
especially, thanks.

Dole Speaks to '77 Grads 



Graduation — a time of excitement, 
a time of sadness. We have worked 
hard and now it is time to end. A sense 
of accomplishment fills our beings, but 
the insecurity of an unknown future 
weakens those positive sensations. 
Ours is a unique class — a special 
feeling prevailed among our 
revolutionary women. We have 
intensified our search for identity and 
begun to find our role as women. 
Relationships in the Meredith 
community will change in significance 
as we go our separate ways. However, 
fond memories will be with us no 
matter what the difference. Many 
opportunities are awaiting us as we 



make the final steps across the stage 
today. 

As we reflect on all the good and bad 
times at Meredith, we hear Dr. Lolley 
deliver the Baccalaureate sermon. 
Finally, during the afternoon, while 
our many friends and family melt in 
the sun we march for the last time. 
With pride our families watch us 
receive our diplomas and we sit 
together for the last time and listen to 
Commissioner Dole give the afternoon 
address on "Shortages in the Land of 
Plenty." On receipt of our Bibles and 
diplomas we reflect on four years and 
bid farewell to Meredith College.

Raleigh 



The Raleigh Life 





A night on the town in Raleigh 
presents unlimited things to do; 
From thousands of choices to choose from 
You just decide where and with whom. 

Suppose you are getting hungry 
and you can't hack the Meredith food 
The sky is the limit as to what you can eat, 
It's whatever satisfies the mood. 

There are many short-order restaurants 

Of which we shall name a few: 

There's roast beef at Arby's, hot dogs at Hardee's 

And chicken at the Colonel's, too. 

And then for those with a "Big Mack attack" 
McDonald's is right down the street. 
While Blimpies and Sadlacks can serve you a sub • 
We're sure you'll find something to eat. 

Suppose you want to splurge one night 
^RncTpay two dollars or more, 
Darylls is definitely a Meredith spot, 
And pizza places — we have them galore. 



If by chance, you get a rich blind date 

And he lets you choose the place and time 

Then he can't get angry when you choose the Angus Barn, 

Or reserve the Kanki for nine. 



After your hunger begins to subside 
And you are ready for a night on the town 
The skyline, the Main Event, or Barney's 
Aren't the only places to boogie on down 



Goodnight's is always a hot spot to hit 
And Thursday night is great for the gals; . 
Since girls get in free with free beer cards, too. 
What better way to draw a crowd! 

And each year as Spring fever hits us again 
Hillsborough Square seems to be the place to go, 
And this year there are a couple of new places — 
Free Advice and Happy Day's Disco. 

Then sometimes Meredith's can't supply our needs 

So we cruise State and fraternity row. 

And if not for any other reason 

Than to keep tabs on our special "John Does."

Special Someones 



To Him 
With Love 



That special someone — to many 
women on campus, the most treasured 
part of Raleigh life is that special male. 
Some are N.C. State students, some 
local businessmen and many travel 
from UNC or elsewhere. But whoever 
he is — he is unique. Whether he 
brought a moment of happiness or an 
entire year, he belonged to you! What 
about that special guy? There was the 
weekend he chased the blues away and 
the time he sent you a flower when you 
weren't feeling too well. And what 
about the week you had five tests and 
how he listened to your tale of woe. He 
fed many a hungry stomach and 
laughed over many good times. Yes 
there were fights and you swore you 
would never speak to him again. But 
who could resist that smile! You ran in 
the rain and watched football and 
basketball games together. For many 
there were the Jr. Sr. and Christmas 
dances and many other nights on the 
town. Just as important were the 
private talks and most of all the night 
you fell in love — 

He is special to you in his own way 
for all the reasons that only you know. 
But to every Meredith girl that special 
guy brought moments of happiness and 
tears and harmony to your world. Most 
of all he held your hand through 
another very competitive and tough 
year. When you were ready to quit he 
somehow knew you would make it 
through just because you are you.

WHO'S Tl 
FARRAHE! 





Entertainment 
of the Year! 

"Don't touch that dial!" — These are 
not the words of some famous — or in- 
famous — television announcer. 
Rather, they are the frantic tones ut- 
tered by anyone of us "regulars" in 
front of a TV set every weekday at 
twelve noon. Brock sings for every oc- 
casion, while Peggy continuously cries. 
The fact that Leslie has been changed 
infuriates us all. What is it that causes 
numerous Meredith Angels to arrange 
their schedules so that the twelve 
o'clock hour is free? What do these tele- 
vision personalities have that causes us 
to give up a half-hour of warm, 
springtime sunshine to catch up on that 
favorite soap? We don't have time to 
figure that out — we're too busy trying 
to make it to the television set in time! 

Not only are Meredith Angels glued 
faithfully to the tube for their favorite 
"story", but some of us more ardent fol- 
lowers have our reserved seats in the 
parlors from sunup to midnight. Who 
would dare study during prime time? 
Who can afford to miss such good spe- 
cials? How can we forget those late 
night movies . . . (and the pizza we 
ordered to help keep us awake!)? After 
all, television is a proven educational 
medium; and who would deny our in- 
tellectual curiosity by turning off the 
tele — Don't touch that dial! 

Television is only one form of enter- 
tainment in the year 1977. Where were 
you and who were your favorite stars, 
songs and movies?

Most students at Meredith have more 
than a passing interest in current affairs 
and many of them are actively involved 
n making things happen. A few brief 
glances into a freshmen's journal for the 
i^ year will give an idea of how even the 
relatively uninvolved student is 
touched by current issues at Meredith. 
Obviously, Meredith not only exposes 
her students to current affairs, but gives 
them a chance to become involved as 
well. 

October — 

Wow, it's really been a full month! 
The elections are on everyone's mind. 
There are posters, buttons, stickers for 
this candidate or that everywhere, and 
the juniors even used the elections as 
their Cornhuskin' theme. 

And would you believe that I shook 
Jack Ford's hand?? He came to the cam- 
pus and spoke for a few minutes. Of 
course, his visit got all the Carter fans in 
full swing, and the courtyard looked 
like a Ford-Carter collage! 

November — 

Well Jimmy Carter is our new presi- 
dent! Many girls on my hall seemed 




was elected governor of N.C. So ends 
the elections for another four years. 

January — 

Back to school after such a long break! 
Jimmy Carter has been inagurated. 
True to his word, the first thing he did 
was to pardon the draft offenders. The 
general feeling around campus seemed 
to be in favor of the decision. However, 
I'll argue that issue any day, along with 
the capital punishment one. Yes, they 
executed Gary Gilmore. 

February — 

February already! The semester will 
soon be gone. 

You know I've been doing a lot of 
thinking lately about the ERA. 
Meredith, being a women's college, 
provides all sorts of opportunities for 
learning about women, from special 
courses to film series to lectures and 
workshops. Seeing women in this 
broader light has completely changed 
my passive attitude toward the ERA to 
one of strong advocacy. 

Oops! I'm going to miss "Roots"! It's 
a fascinating program that has swept 
America and you can hardly find a tele- 
upset that Ford lost, but things will vision on campus that is not tuned to it! 
work for the best, I believe. Jim Hunt

210 — OAK LEAVES 1977 




Meredith 
Abroad 



London. . A city with varied meanings 
to many people. To one who has only 
been there through pictures, it is a queen 
frozen in a mid-wave of the hand, a 
smiling beef-eater at the Tower of 
London, or halted marching guards at 
Buckingham Palace; all neatly transferred 
onto a page. 

But to the 64 Meredith students and 
faculty who lived in London for two 
months during the summer of '76, the 
pictures once seen in a book, now come 
alive with laughter, color, and pulsating 
life. We discovered London to be a city of 
contrasts. While the stifling heat brought 
sweat to our brows, the cool night air 
coming off the Thames gave a renewed 
feeling to us all. Walking down the 
familiar stretch to the tube station, in a 
matter of minutes one could be in 
Piccadilly, Hyde Park, or Wimbledon. 
The vibrant talk and bustle arising in the 
station during the day, suddenly becomes 
a frightful solitude when left there at 12 
midnight, not one pence for a taxi; and 
the tubes are closed for night — "Sorry!" 

The students took advantage of their 
freedom to roam about the city, taking in 
sights such as Parliament, Greenwich 
Village, St. Paul's Cathedral, and Samuel 
Johnson's House. Besides visiting 
historic monuments, there was also 
ample time for the theatre, with 
astounding plays and musicals like 
"Equus", "A chorus Line", and 
"Mousetrap".

Where Do We Go From Here? 



There is rarely a time at my home 
church when I am not stopped by some 
well-meaning, but out-of-touch older 
lady who inquires about the state of my 
Meredith career. Am I adjusting well? 
Have I chosen a major? Do I like my 
professors? When I reply, "Oh, I'm 
graduating in May!," the inevitable 
response is, "Oh, Honey, are you 
really! Has it been four years already? 
My, how time has flown. It hasn't 
seemed like you've been there that 
long, now does it?!" In situations such 
as these, I am always reminded of a 
fellow-student who replied to a similar 
question, "Oh, yes ma'am! It has most 
definitely been four full years'." 

Four years — full of plans, hopes, 
dreams, realities, sorrows, worry, 
tension, excitement — but most 
definitely four years. Where did it get 
us? What did we learn? What feelings 
do we carry with us? To get an idea of 
our feelings after four years at 
Meredith, we collected some thoughts 
from our fellow students in answer to 
our questions. 

— What are you doing after graduation? 
getting married, and hope to get a 

job in Social Services * working in 
industry and working up to an 
executive position * trying to get a 
pharmaceutical sales job * going back 
home and find a job! * looking for a job 
(anywhere!) * work in business 
administration, I hope * continue to 
study music and drama * I don't know * 
travel * teach * 

— What is your greatest hope for the 



future? 

to find an area of work I enjoy * to 
be satisfied with myself * to get a job I 
won't feel stuck with * to be brave 
enough to be myself at all times * to get 
married (!) * to work toward my highest 
potential * to be well-known * 

— What is your greatest fear? 

to be stuck in a situation I can't get 
out of * not to be able to afford the 
things I want * to be lonely * to be 
unemployed * to lose touch with myself 
* not to make much of my Life * to be in 
a big city with no friends * bankruptcy * 
to wish my life away * that people won't 
accept me as I am * to lose my loved 
ones * 

— How has Meredith prepared you for 
the future? 

broadened my knowledge of 
people * taught me how to get along 
with people of all sorts * academically 
well-rounded and versatile * placement 
service * helped me learn to love and 
accept other people * exposed me to 
different facets of life * made me more 
independent * gave me the opportunity 
to do things I never would have done * 
it hasn't * shown me the potential to get 
involved in people's lives intimately * 
showed me how to use my time * 
broadened my horizons * 

Yes, it has definitely been four years. 
Who could have done everything we 
have had to do — and everything we've 
wanted to do — in much less time?! But 
then again, who would have wanted to? 
It's been a good four full years!

Education of LOVE! 

A professor in Chicago is reported to 
have given the following test to his 
pupils. He told them they were not 
really educated unless they could say 
Yes to all these questions: 

Has your education given you 
sympathy with all the good causes and 
made you espouse them? 

Has it made you public-spirited? 

Has it made you a brother to the 
weak? 

Have you learned how to make 
friends and to keep them? 

Do you know what it is to be a friend 
yourself? 

Can you look an honest man or a pure 
woman straight in the eye? 

Do you see anything to love in a little 
child? 

Will a lonely dog follow you down the 
street? 

Can you be high-minded and happy 
in the meaner drudgeries of life? 

Do you think washing dishes and 
hoeing corn just as compatible with 
high thinking as piano playing or golf? 

Are you good for anything to 
yourself? Can you be happy alone? 

Can you look out on the world and 
see into a mud puddle by the 
wayside and see anything in the puddle 
but mud? 

Can you look into the sky at night 
and see beyond the stars? 

Can your soul claim relationship with 
the Creator?

OAK LEAVES 1977 — 223 



In Closing 



The 1977 OAK LEAVES is finally 
finished. After a year of planning, hard 
work and many good times, it is all 
over. I said many times during the past 
year that the happiest time of my life 
would be when I no longer had to drag 
this book around with me and yet, 
there is a sadness that comes with 
finishing something that has become a 
part of your life. 

There are many people that I cannot 
thank enough for making this book 
possible. Dru Hinsley and Merna 
Galassi deserve a special thanks for all 
of their understanding and 
encouragement. For all the times that 
Bill Norton would have liked to kill me 
for adding to his work load, I want him 
to know that I appreciate all of his help. 
Especially I would like to thank all of 
the photographers who put in hours of 
work for us. Jana and Stella always 
came through with late nigh^ hqin-s a»d 



as for Cindi Sharpe- 



You are the greatest. Beth Wicker 
deserves special recognition for hours 
and hours of tedious work on the 
division pages and for work towards 
the cover. 

Nor could I ever have made it without 
our yearbook representative Joe 
Allegood and all of his patience and 
understanding. Smith Studios 
produced all of the portraits and did a 
terrific job, also. 

Finally to all of the students who 
wrote copy — thanks and especially 
thanks to Suzanne and Sara. There are 
two staff members that stand in a class 
all of their own. Saribeth, you were 
great and good luck to you. Robin, you 
stuck with me all the way! I wish you a 
successful year with the 1978 OAK 
LEAVES. 

I hope that I have not forgotter^C 
anyone. If I have I apologize, ^^* 
Especially, I promise all of my family 
^jd very close friends that they will 



never hear the word yearbook again! 
Can you believe that I finished and only 
drove us all half crazy? 

As usual I have to have the last word 
(or words). But, I do want the student 
body to know that we hope you are 
proud of your book. We did our best 
and that is all that can be asked. 
Throughout the 1977 yearbook we tried 
to show our idea of love and harmony 
and how we see the Meredith 
community. As the middle of the 
summer approaches, finally your book 
is finished. Producing it for you has 
been a true experience that has touched 
my life. Now we ask only that you take 
the love, harmony, and peace offered in 
the 1977 OAK LEAVES and share it 
wherever you go and with everyone 
that you see. 

With a special love, 

Sarah Ruth til
