DEAN The editors of Moderator have hypothesized that the Dean of Stu- dents at any college is the man in the middle. On one side are students vvith their demand, on the other, the administration. They further hypothe- sized that he is powerless to act in matters to satisfy students' demands because he doesn't have the povver. When vve questioned Dr. Wilde about this, he pointed out that quite often the students' complaints can't be re- solved by his otfice because they don't come under his jurisdiction: academic matters come under the dean of aca- demics, financial and housing under the comptroller, records under the registrar, etc, "ln these situations, all I can do is listen to the student, advise him of vvho to see and add my voice to his, if the complaint merits atten- tion. lt is important to me that stu- dents come to me with their questions and complaints because I then knovv vvhat problems they are having and can vvork to alleviate them. And then too, the lines distinguishing jurisdiction are not ironclad or even clearly dis- tinguishable in some matters. 01-' STUDENT S d 75 --fi -L- 9:00 - phone call about keeping dorm open after 5 pm. on Sung phone call about Rocky ,Nlount's desegregation plans. 9:l5 - Seminar on the American College student - reports on the married student and sexual attitudes at Wesleyan ll:30 - conference with Gill about discipline problems H150 Y work on lettersg Interrupted by Fredericlxs to check on the changing ot locks tor fraternity lounges over the summerg conference vvith non graduating seniorg back to letters for tive minutesg conversation with Lowenthalg phone call to check on wording of letter. l2:30 - Lunch with lames and Moore 1:30 - conference with student 2:00 - trial by administration to handle discipline problem -Nj-M -- e L-'ki 5 ug' 3:45 f start to 5, Ll, alter having listened to evidence and making decision about discipline problem called into Dr. Collin! officer 4:00 - call vvite, start going thru letters and memosg receive tvvo phone calls, discussed the events ot day with Dissenter reporter: "This has been an atypical day.

IS THIS WESLEYAN North Carolina Wesleyan is a four-year, private, liberal arts college, dedicated to introducing you to the breadth of man's knowledge. We believe that a liberal arts education is the most practical of all educations because it provides you with basic understanding that will enable you to enter any field - law or teaching, medicine or the ministry, writing or chemistry. We believe that ideally, education can be the development of our ability to perceive to understand, and to generalize - both Y , upon and beyond your individual experience! We believe that the result of such development can be the continually growing elf and the world in which you capacity for knowledge of yours live. To achieve this we are committed to teaching a lasting respect for truth and beauty, to preparing individual to think creatively and precisely and to act wisely and responsibly. As an institution of higher education, our prime purpose is to awaken and develop the intellect. But we are aware that intel- lectual capability without direction of context is sterile. Con- sequently, we encourage you to have as your ultimate goal becoming an able and eager contributing member of con- t rar society. You will be urged to develop not only your empo y intellectual power, but your social understanding as well. We are a Christian college by choice - and as our president Thomas A. Collins, states, "without apology." We feel that Christianity is as much a part of man's past, his present, and his future as is the fact that he lives and breathes. 4 5 131,116 LOOK TO YOUR FUTURE WITH PROFESSORS WHO CARE 0R IS THIS Q S , N , yo. rw- M- ' ,X,ynl1n'L'v Ihr wg, -,!mM will fu- mvluf ,J1'l.llINl' "M hw'-I fm' Q-' '1 "mv lun' !1'r Mm' rrvlrnllvt Xx,,irlq1vg ful "un vw , .4-4g'q1:' fvv'xX lr. mllnlr ,I-,MH ,I frm!

H L ' 25 26 HPOPSUCONCE EMIRES? DAISSENTERE Dr. Wilde, in a letter to re- turning students you stated 'fSomeihovv I feel that this year will mark the 'beginning of ,a renevved student body morale and' interest at Wesleyan. collegefl Now that the ?lf968+69year is over, do you feel that your thought vvas correct? VVlL.DlE1:, This year has been a year of greater student involvement than any other year at 'VVesleyan, S.tud,e'nts have been interested in both on and off campus activities. l vvouldn't say that this is iindicative of renevved student morale, at least not in the traditional sense, Traditionally, student morale has been regarded as contentment with the school and group fsoilidarity. Our students aren't contented: they gripe about dorm conditions, the social' programs, the food, Sat. classes, etc. They express the opinion, and in some situations correctly, that the college officials treat them as if they vvere still public high school students and not paying customers. Our students are not content, I was wrong, We have not had a renewed student body morale. DISSENTER: In your opinion, vvhy aren't students content? 'f. -1529 .fl -1-D - . .

The lfaguity, ad,rninristrat'ion, and students are still sure of what want for the Wh at d i rectio n the college take in matters of academic, religious, and social regulations? What type of image will it project? Socially is Weselyan to be conservative or liberal in such matters as alcohol on campus, dormitory regulations, dress codes, etc,?gAg We going to project a traditional religious atmosphere or are we going to be a mem- ber of theisecular church? Are we going to be a traditional liberal arts college or are we going to be innovative? What courses of study shall we offer? These are only a few of the decisions to be made. Some of them have been made and now we must decide either to live with them or change them. Others are still to be made. Students are frustrated by this indecision, and this frustration helps cause discontent with the policies of the administration. Combine these frustrations with the frus- trations that arise when students realize that their high school had better school spirit, activities and services than Wesleyan, and we have a reason for discontent. I say that their high schools were better because the vast majority of our students come from high schools of TOOO or more students which provided better services. They could see a more exciting basketball game. Their organizations had sponsors and appeared more active than those at Wesleyan. Their school lunches were better than the food in the cafeteria. lviost of them came from high schools which had long-established traditions. This is one thing that Wesleyan doesn't have and won't have for .a ,few more years. The lack of tradition could. be made less noticeable if Wesleyan had luxurious dormitories, fantastic food, a Fine Arts Building, a totally unique approach to education, etc, but we don't. These things -require a great deal of money which we don't have at this time. However the growing pains of the college aren't the only cause of student discontent and frustration. In my study this fall of incoming freshmen, I found that our freshmen, as compared with those from other colleges, seem to be more in a state of Indecision regarding their probable career choice. ln another study last spring I found that a high percentage of Wesleyan students hadn't decided what career to pursue. Wesleyan students are suffering from the same growing pains as the college. They are asking themselves: "What type of image will l project?", "What is my social code?", "How do l react to the church and to the world?", "Shall I drink?f', "Shall l experiment with drugs?", etc. His uncertainty contributes to his dis- content. Often, the college serves as a catalyst. Take for example, the parking situation. After repeated complaints from the students about a poorly planned parking pattern, the college hired a man to check parking and give tickets. There were howls of protest from students. So we turned the matter over to the S. G. A. They could not solve the problem, and the President of the S. G. A. asked this office to take the problem back. We immediately announced 510.00 fines for parking in the driveways. The problem was solved but do you know what students then said? "All this college is interested in is my money." Another example is the men's dorm. The residents complain about the noise but they won't pass regulations concerning it, and the Dorm Council will not take action. l tell them, "ltfs your dorm and you have to live there. Do something about the noise." But they seem to think it is someone else's job. These sloppy attitudes are adolescent characteristics and demonstrate that our students are experiencing growth pains. DISSENTER: Do you think your policy of could add to the student's discontent? And what exactly does "freedom of respon- sibility mean? -WILDE: The policy of freedom with responsibility has two direct meanings to students. lt means they have freedom: to learn, to participate in the affairs of the college, to help make decisions about the administration of the college, to learn to make wise decisions about their own personal and individual lives, and to benfireie of meaningless and oppressive rules and regulations which the college might enforce upon them. But, it also means that they have responsibility to consider the ethical, moral, and educational con- sequences of their words, conduct, and activity to themselves, other students, and the college, and to be fully accountable for such words, conduct and activity, to participate actively in the academic and extracurricular affairs of the collegeg and to uphold those rules and regulations which have been openly and democratically decided. For some of our students this policy does add to their discontent because it forces them to decide for themselves what they will or will not do. It means that they must live with their decision - for the first time for some of our students. Our office is not going to snoop around and check to see if they are abiding with the rules or not. VVe're not going to check to see that they have been to class or if they are studying in their room or down at the Retreat. The students involved in the situation must help me decide whether their action was responsible or not. DISSENTER: In your opinion, do students want this responsibility? VVILDE: Quite a few of our students do. Others find it frustrating. In fact, the majority of the crises of this year in stu- dent affairs have been because students wanted to be involved. They have been in conflict with themselves and the college over their role in the college. The President's Proclamation which came in the midst ofy the boycott in Rocky Mount caused students to l question what their role was and how effective it could be. Students and administrators debated what the proclamation meant, how it could be enforced, how it affected off-campus activities, and what students could do g l 4 ,X about the Proclamation. The Senate lost no time in debating the merits of the Proc- lamation. It has taken all year to revise the Proclamation and the students have had a voice - a large voice in the revision. The struggle between the Business Office and the SGA over the pool table money is another example of students trying to identify and maintain their rights. less and his supporters were aware of the financial problems of the college, and they were very aware of the inefficiencies of the maintenance of the campus. Their concern about the lack of student services in com- bination with the fact that when the pool l l . l P A! ,wx pil: 'mi ' "rrp, ,, ii -l .,Q ,l i lx ' , rl ' ' .1 N' film: H ,Wifi swirl' illltl p, i vii, l- . .

Concern of a different nature provoked student's interest in action on behalf of Greg Hall. Students were asking whatlthey could do about faculty members they, thought were being mistreated.

Because, in Dr. Collins opinion, all too often students are interested in only the immediate situation while tenured faculty members, administra- tors, and members of the board of the trus- tees have the long-range vision of the coilege in mind when they make decisions. DISSENTER: How can students be influen- tial in making changes that they think will improve Wesleyan in the long run? WILDE: First, they should examine the situa- tions they think need changing yery critically and carefully. Find out why something is done a certain way. Secondly, construct a feasible program or policy to correct the things that need changing, talk to adminis- trators, faculty membersg listen to criticism they receive and review their position. If after all this thinking and reviewing, they feel that they are correct then they should petition, publicize and convince people they are right. Most important, they should remember that Wesleyan is still growing, as l've pointed out, and there are many deci- sions to be made. Any student can influence the administration if he offers constructive criticism and is willing to struggle patiently. lf what he wants is worth it, then he should be willing to fight for it. But first, he must decide if it is worth it. be rahfitinnal anb THE NEW were the elements making up the whole of the '68-'69 year. Freshman Orientation, a tradition of five years, started the non-academic phase of student life. Parents descended upon the campus en masse for a weekend, the first in a series of new things. Girls living in Edgecombe and guys in the infirmary were two new factors of dorm lifeg second semester brought extended hours for women students. The Social Commission introduced a three-part concert series. Homecoming plans were much the same as previous years with a little more sophistication, possibly a result of sorority-fraternity participation. The Wesleyan College Theatre continued their tradition of staging a musical comedy, a series of "one acts", and then closing their season with a serious drama. The established organizations found support in the new ones. Together they developed a full program of activities for the Wesleyan Community. yin J ...Q . a .., ef .,.-7' 4 7, . 0.24.1 4- .' . ni Iv ---ff-lf, gr x - 'W ' W ,MA Rf. .. le ? sift.. , T l .

I I, i 1 S -x y, 3, 18 Throughout the year there were underground rumors Circulating that the SCA had done nothing. A close look at the structure of the SCA reveals the source of its poweri the student. If that power tailed to operate, there wasn't too much that could be done about it. However, a close look at what did happen at Wesleyan also reveals that it was far from "nothing". When the Orientation Committee helped the Frosh move in and then proceeded to inform and entertain them for a week, the SCA was at work. The Food and Services Committee in conference with Mrs. Batchelor was evidence of SGA operations, as was the work of the Elections Committee throughout the year. These and other committees, working with the Senate or under the supervision of President less Blackman, served the Student Body. The many commissions operated for and with the students, The first major social event of the year was the Platters Concert - one ot a package deal worked out by the Social Commission. They were followed later on in the year by Amanda Ambrose and then the Waytarers. The Finance Commission, directed by Treasurer Al Horne, held the strings to the moneybag. The Men's and Women's Athletic Commissions promoted intramural sports, the women students also travelled to neighboring colleges to compete. The Publications Commission guided the selection of publication editors and their operations. The Interfaith Commission, although somewhat sidelined due to the Convocations program initiated this year, showed an active interest by sponsoring a mock US. Presidential Election. Homecoming activities and the spring formal were both coordinated by the SCA. Yet the biggest part of SCA work went undetected and unappreciatecl. The 19 iudicial system operated out of nec essity, court members were often heard voicing their dislike for the job yet they realized the value of the system for student protection. Glenn Cockrell presided over the Senate working to improve the operations of the Student Ciovernment Machine. Secretary Marilyn Schoon typed the letters and licked the stamps that kept the SCA in touch with the outside world. At a time when many university and college campuses were in a state of unrest - visible in riots, demonstrations, protests and marches e Wesleyan appeared to be doing "nothing". ln relationship to the turbulence of a riot, the tension ot' a demonstration or the endurance of a march, there may have been nothing going on. Wesleyan student leaders preferred to unleash their dissatisfaction with the Establishment through direct confrontation with it.

My mom's up here on the hall." "How come the Dean knew your name?" "Where are we going to eat? Oh no, not the cafeteria!" "Hon, do we have to sit out here in the sun and watch them kick around that little checkered ball? Bill, do you think we could go see the fashion show, now?" "Listen, while you and Dad are at the banquet and out visiting the professors, could l have the car?" "What do you mean you're going to stop in at the dance?" "Me? Goto Chapel in the morning? Yes, ma'am." Sunday, September 29, 7968: "Bye Have a nice trip home." "Oh, and Dad. . .I'm short a few dollars. . ." "Please drop us a line and let us know if you're still alive." These were the typical comments heard round campus the last weekend in September. ln the beginning, the students were somewhat apprehensive about opening their realm of existence to their parents. As plans began to materialize, however, the students started to look forward to the weekend. Saturday morning, the Bishops club welcomed a deluge of parents. Student enthusiasm was evident in the displays outside the dorms. Edgecombe Hall won the contest with their display of manikin "guys" climbing up makeshift ladders and into the girls' third floor windows. Parents were kept busy from early Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon. First came registration and the guided tours around campus, then lunch, a soccer game for the fathers and a fashion show for the mothers. Dinner was held at Buck Overton's, followed by open house at the homes of various faculty members and administrators. Saturday evening, the Beanie Removal Dance was held, parents were invited to attend, and many did. Some even got into the swing of things. Sunday, a short chapel service was held in the gym. The parents and the Wesleyan community united in worship. Shortly after lunch, parents said their fond farvvells to their children. 24 X' X Ni T w Lei!

An extensive ticlset promotion began with letters sent to all students explaining the series and ended with a final ticilset sales drive the week before the first concert. The first weekend in October, the Platters concert was held. With five vocalists on stage, the walls of Everett Gymnasium vibrated to the sounds of traditional Platters hits such as "With This Ring" and "This Magic Moment", They played to a capacity crowd, lseeping them dazed with the duality of their soul The Platters especially pleased the audience by dedicating songs to them Termed a huge success by the Commission, the Platters provided the series with a good beginning. for the second part of the Social Comm ission's Concert Series. A lean figure, she sat at the piano that evening and began to sing, her entire being could be felt surrounding the audience. With soul in every movement, the slender hands of an accompolished pianist accompanied a voice of depth, perception, emotion and power which seemed to manufacture stage presence beyond belief, As if in suspended animation, the audience remained totally silent as the words "This is my love, this is my life," resounded in the gym, actually leaving the audience breathless. After hearing this, to remain in one's seat was an impossibility, the members of the audience, totally unified, rose from their chairs to award Miss Ambrose with a standing ovation, and this was merely for the first half of her show. The second half proved to be as extraordinary as the first. Her choice of songs revealed her personality and her philosophy: that "each one of us needs the other, one must grant a being its beingnessf' and that one need only bring points of one's life to one's awareness to find peace. Variety in mood and direction was also exihibited in her choice of songs, among them: "Lady Madonna", "Homeward Bound" and "Bessie Mae Mucho". Enthusiasm for the concert series continued with Amandafs visit. The Wayfarers were to come in early spring. 28 .ts 01 44" f v gb' ii? xx P 1 v y, F61 The first week in December brought last minute prepar- ations for Homecoming activ- ities. This year, more people were involved in the planning which fostered more interest. The Freshmen set a new preced- - ent of class. participation by sponsoring a pep rally. They challenged all the campus organizations to gather as much firewood for the bonfire as possible, The victor was clear: Nu Gamma Phi fraternity brought it in by the truckload. A spiritied crowd gathered despite the wind and cold to wish the basketball team luck. The cheerleaders' yells were more than matched by the noise of the crowd. Afterwards, the students moved to the cafeteria for a variety show. This, too, was organized by the Freshmen. Their enthusiasm was contagious. Spirit mounted for the first home game of the season. The Social Commission also added a new activity to the traditional Homecoming plans: a Friday-night concert. Students and their dates filled the gym in anticipation of hearing Arthur Connelly in concert. After nearly an hour of hearing only the band, some students began to fill the time dancing. john Woollen then announced that the concert was cancelled since Mr. Connelly had failed to arrive. Although this was a big let down for the Commission as well as the students, spirits were only temporarily dampened. l , If li 5 I l I , I ,'i llii I Pl Br 551-12415 s. f-v Q ........ , - . vm.: I I s L.. , u U on-.l - 1,11 ' , .

Nash Hall took the prize with their tissue-paper Snoopy atop the dormitory porch roof. The basketball game was changed to an afternoon game in an effort to make the evening less hectic. Despite the loss to the Lynchburg Hornoets, the game was one of excitement and involvement for the Bishops. During halftime, the contestants for the Homecoming crown were presented to the school. The election had been held earlier in the week, but the results were withheld until the dance Saturday night. z 'Wg- . .-.Lg 9 'Vi -9' ,Az 1. .gf 1.122 . ny N Q: Q . , 1 v 1: I 'Y f if s , .

The men's intramural program began in the fall with football, followed by basketball. Third floor South Hall won the football division and the basketball division after a close race with the first floor South, second floor South and Infirmary-Townie teams, Many of the games were filled with excitement and the upsets that accompany competition. The volleyball games that were scheduled had to be cancelled due to the high school tournament play-offs that were held in Everett Gymnasium. The second annual Pool Tournament was also held in the fall. Tournament play was divided into three sections: Tom Knapp won Men's Straight Poolg C. l. Hall and Charles Morrison won lvten's Doublesg and Charlotte Schaffer won Women's 8-Ball Singles.,The freshmen and transfer students brought plenty of competition for the established players at Wesleyan. The Commission expressed thanks to Thorpe Vending Company for donation of trophies and plaques for the winners. The separation of the Commission brought a sharp change in the VVomenfs athletic program. Control of their own budget enabled them to make definite plans throughout the year. Most of the action took place away from home including basketball games at Chowan and Atlantic Christian. ln the spring they played hostess to both schools for volleyball and tennis. The program demonstrated that there is more of a demand for women's varsity sports than intramural sports. The T968-T969 program began the move in that direction. ., 11- T. f' rg, Q xxlm 4 . .

The initial plans of the Aspects called for publishing both a winter and a spring issue as compared to the single issues published in past years. A larger number of contributing members was needed for the proposed expanded program. As this demand vvas not met, the plans never formulated. Late spring approached vvithout even the traditional single issue published. The SGA elections were held to fill editors positions for the 1969-1970 academic year, and Eileen O'Grady vvas elected to the Aspects. The SC-A decided to leave it off the budget for the next year, so funds had to be raised in order to have an Aspects at all for 1969. To meet this need, the 1968-1969 budget was utilized to put together an issue during May to be printed in the summer and delivered for a fall sale. , Q. , -, ,. . . -haf 'jiri-', T2 -if-X49 . x5 f ,ug .'.

The structure of the book was altered in order to present Wesleyan life in a more contin' uous and related manner.

Their activities are planned to extend their studies and at the same time provide the members with social activities. The Bruits planned and executed a related reading program, vvhich began with the sale of Tolken's The Hobbit and cul- minated in an open forum led by Dr, Wilde, Mr, Rushing, Ed Smith and Alice Powell.

The Monogram Club sponsored both traditional and new activities. The members con- tinued to work the concession at soccer and basketball games to raise money and provide a service for spectators. They also held their third annual Horse Show on April 5. This year, they set up a permanent ring in anticipation of con- tinuing the tradition. A new fund raising project was initiated in the winter: a basketball game between the "All-American Red Heads" and a local "All Star" team. The all-american, all-red-head females, all close to, if not over six feet tall, proved to be more than a match for the Wesleyan-Rocky Mount men. For the first time, the Monogram Club sponsored an election to determine which Club Sweetheart should be Wesleyan's representative in the D.I.A.C. Queen competition. loyce Homan was crowned at a home game and was then sent to the D.I.A.C, Tournament in Greensboro. .lla il I 4 -C N 'f 1 NV ..- F Om ,5 P- 08 gk X -5 14 -XII Star Team mt-mbf-rx Cminh Huw, Trf1rmXXe-Nlvxarw .md Twmrm an 5 f lf' . fm- .mv mute The RMT H+,-ade mlmfiuff- tTwr1w1Ix+-- rw the regtffrffw ami XX ackleax Imm Radu X1wL1nrc'am um!-. nun Iw .md laugh ax the! mm Qoliegct pmnti This IIJLZFQ mp lm!

Q lt's not surprising that an organization like the Wesleyan Players would have a lot of get-up-and-gog after all, its ranks are filled vvith all the student actors, stage crevv, designers and directors vvho burn the midnight oil three times a year to bring theatre productions to campus. Although not all the vvork in the Theatre Department is that of Wesleyan Players, their contributions 9? X were evident throughout the year. Many mem- bers vvork in several different areas of the stage. Above, right, Sam Morris paints a flat for the one-acts in which he also performed. Wesleyan Players not only provides a valuable link between campus-wide activities and club tunctionsg it also puts classroom learning to practical application. 1 x w .ov Under the ciurectunn nf Prvside-nt Brxa Stearns, the gmup prnx'lciewi the staging and Ilgntnng Inf pvrtnrrning artlxtx, tlIJfY'I'dlCCI a Cnnfwslnn Stand at cnncefrts and xnwte-cl arm cnllegel theatre prnciuctlnnw Them' cnntrnucd tnmr tradltuunal rnethnd In IDIIIJIIHQ nefxx nwrnbcirs, providing c-ntertainnwnt mr them!

The faculty-student administration committee felt that they could otter much finer programs if they sold tickets. With this in mind, a ticket sales campaign was initiated in the Rocky Mount area, their goal was easily met. Students and faculty were invited to attend the four concerts free of charge. Besides bringing a varied group of performers to Wesleyan, the new series also served to improve the overall fine arts program by establishing a restricted fund, With this fund, the portable stage was paid in part and it will be possible to raise the quality of future programs, The 1968-1969 Performing Arts Series opened with the Camerata Bern. The National Players presented A Midsummer Night! Dream in Ianuary and, in February, jose Molina Bailes Espanoles performed. The National Opera Company ended the season with La Perichole.

The Brotherhood started the 1968-1969 academic year with tvventy-one active brothers, To relax from the first three vveeks of classes, in vvhich the men of the green and vvhite purchased a color television set after a successful light-bulb sale, many of the members participated in "Shipwreck 1968", a vveek-end trip to Nags l-lead, North Carolina. Mr. Robert Lovventhal, faculty advisor to the fraternity, accompanied the group on their excursion. In a surprise ceremony featuring the Alpha Delta Chi Chorus, Miss Linda Daniels received the avvard of "Svveetheart". After serenading Miss Daniels vvith tvvo favorite selections, the fraternity presented her vvith tvventy-one long stemmed roses, signifying that the tvventy-one hearts of Alpha Delta Chi belonged to her. Second semester brought the second "Rush" period for the fraternity, During the vveek, an open house and several parties were held. An eight vveek pledge period began on lanuary 22. After the "Mission lmpossible" scavenger hunt, many social events and the kidnapping of both pledges and brothers, thirteen pledges were initiated into the fraternity. Soon after, the entire membership took part in the third money-making project of the year, the sale of candy. Alpha Delta Chi concluded the year's activities vvith the third annual "Quinqutras", a festival held every spring. of '19 -4 JW 'Yr ,rn gg, A.

Early in the year, the fraternity participated in Parents Weekend and then in Visitation Weekend, both new activities at NCWC. During basketball season, they printed "Know Your Players" to build school pride in the team. To boost spirit for Homecoming Weekend, they built a display and put out banners for the occasion. Ann Thomas Gill, Nu Gamma Phi Sweetheart, was crowned Homecoming Queen at the dance during the weekend. lust before Christmas break, the fraternity set the holiday mood with their second annual caroling around campus. Return to classes in lanuary brought Rush Week and then Pledge Period. The brothers and pledges sponsored a Kissing Booth for Valentines Day and on March TT, the third annual Inter-fraternity Tournament was held. The brothers of Nu Gamma Phi were easily the victors with a score of TOT to 54, while their pledges bowed to Alpha Delta Chi, 68-62. Easter Sunday, Nu Gamma Phi formed a choir for the Sunrise Service, They also invited thirty boys from the East Carolina Training School to an Easter party. included in the party was a rather unique Egg Hunt, inclement weather drove the party inside the gym where the eggs were hidden in the risers, chairs and music stands. In the spring, the brotherhood also participated in the Circle-K Talent Show. For the second year in a row, they won the Best Comedy Award for their skit based on "There Is Nothing Like A Dame" from "South Pacific". In April, they held an election for the Best Professor Award which they started this year. lt was awarded to Dr. Allen S. lohnson. I 1 Airs.: IK Pl EPSILO In the fall of 1968, Pi Epsilon Sorority vvent through the char- tering process, resulting in their acceptance. The first part of the semester vvas spent on organiza- tion and raising funds to operate. The sisters held a stationery sale on campus that proved so suc- cessful it is apt to become an an- nual activity. Working with the IFC, the sisterhood prepared refreshments for the Homecoming dance and the Open House that weekend. When second semester began, the sisters opened Rush Week with a tea, followed by several in- formal parties. During pledge period,the pledgeclass decorated the sorority lounge for one of its projects, another vvas visiting Nashmont Nursing Home. The nevvly initiated sisters ioinedthesisterhoodintheCircIe- K Talent Shovv for a song and dance reminiscent of vaudeville shows. During the May term, the so- rority gave a supper in honor of the graduating sisters, closing their year's activities. L,..,A:Lsl'-3 -J-41....L1-, 1 .J ...lg ,- - 11. ,ggi - ..-.

' if-l'-' i nf When aslved lor comments concerning the Wesleyan sports program, Athletic Director Nloe Bauer said, "Over all the sports program has not been good due to the dropping ot tivo sports, cross country and wrestling. The schedules are easy to make up but the men and the support are rare on N,C.ll",C" This is probably the real problem here at Wesleyan. Basketball is our biggest spectator sport but even this is nothing to brag about vx hen possibly only l5".-1 ot our students come to support the Bishops, According to Coach Bauer, "The athletic program is for the students, il they don't participate then there is no program," That the student hasn't participated as much as they should is true but the whole picture is not yet in view. In addition to a drop in student participation there has also been a degree ot student mistrust concerning the coaching stan. Although much criticism is unwarranted, the coaches have not been able to lead their boys. There has been dissension on the teams which the coaches could not squelch. A typical Wesleyan student said, "I don't believe that the coaches have led or played their individual athletes capablyf' Furthermore, the lack of unity and desire were noticed by students who made such comments as "They are individuals not a team," "No one seems to know what he is doing." and "Why don't the players seem to respect the coach?" These are not the questions oi a contented and loyal student body. Therefore, the next coming years will be crucial to our athletic programs, in student morale and coaching. Coach Bauer said, "ln a year or two we must take a good hard look at the program to see how good it is and what effect itiis having. This will he necessary: lf the student must get involved iyhy the hell can't they get involved in their college first and make NCWC better." 81 A BEGINNING .I Soccer at Wesleyan improved a great deal in the 1968 sea- son. A balance of veterans and eager freshmen led the team to tvvo victories and one tie. This was a great improvement over the past tvvo winless seasons. Morale was the big rea- son as the Bishops fought vigorously despite injuries which removed key players for long periods of time. The season, though disap- pointing to some, vvas and is the foundation on which the winning teams of the future will be built. For the first time in years, our soccer team displayed a great deal of desire. The freshmen added a great deal of eagerness, muscle, and guts to the experienced veterans' skill and proven abilities. But most of all, the Bishops proved to themselves and to the students that they could vvin. wx:-N , Q ,x RSX' Q Q 9 4 Q K 7 1,-.1 -P-' 5 Q 'V .

Well, considering that this was an off-year in the English department, pretty vvell. What do you mean hy on-year? Oh, that is just my way of referring to the messed-up way the English department offers courses to students. Within a two year period, they offer a complete survey of hoth English and American literature. The first year they offer American literature, Milton, Chaucer, English Renaissance English Novel, and literary critism. The next year they finer Shakespeare, British Romantics, Victorian Literature, and 20th century British lit. The latter one l refer to as an on-year Is that all they offer? Oh no, Dr. Teagarden, Mrfs Miselle, Hall and Hawk and Mrs. Smith teach frosh English and the required courses for majors each year, But it's difficult to arrange your schedule during an on-year, if you're a junior and plan to practice teach, because you don't have a good choice of electives in your major, I just happened to be one of those unfortunates.

Prior to April 28th, students were inxolxed in preparation for minimester, Proiects were to he on some topic not offered during the regular terms. Worth -l s. h. of credit, it was hoped that the projects would oner students a totally clihterent learning experience. On-campus projects attracted students interested in Communist Education, Population and Birth Control, Cosmology, the Utopian Ideal, Totalitarinism and Mass Society, European Intellectual History, Current Problems in Psychology, l-lehrew Poetry, the American War Novel and the Contemporary American College Student. Courses that were both off-and on-campus were Dr, Smith's team teaching and elementary education, Mr. liing's American history internship with the N. C, Department ot Archives and l-listory and Mr. Rushings Problems in Local Government. 1' t,,- Possibly the most glamourous of the minimester projects werefthose which took students abroad: Western Man, Tour of France, and Contemporary English Drama. A year long project, Western Man was open only to freshmen because it replaced Western Civilization and English ll and 12 for those who took it. Under Dr. johnson and Dr Teagarden's guidance, 28 frosh studied Great Britain's history and culture and spent three weeks in England. Also in England for minimester was Mr. Mizelle's 52-man group studying English drama. After a week of reading and studying the New British Drama, the group left for London where they savv eight plays, At the same time this group was seeing British drama, Mr. Dingman's American Contemporary Performing Arts group was in New York.

All of you have made our college experience one to remember. ln remembering, l'm sure we will forget many things that we have experienced in our years at Wesleyan, but many will remain with us always. "The Embers" will most certainly be remembered as will our annual "Frog and Turtle Race". Our gift to the school will be our remembrance for years to come, All the other good times and the bad are too numerous to mention here, but l'm sure we'll all agree the good greatly outweighs the bad. ln closing, l want to congratulate all those who made it. l'm sure May 25th will be one day we'll reflect on many times and remember forever.

Hard work on several projects was needed to increase our bank balance. By working together, we sponsored a Direct Distance Chance, the Sing Along, a joint venture with the Seniors to bring the Embers of Raleigh to Wesleyan and a dance ticket rattle. We believe that the above proves that our class can be made even stronger. However, this cannot be accomplished without ehfective leadership and support from all class members. It is the duty of your officers to lead but it is your dut to' show them what needs to be dong. We would like to thank the class for the support and spirit it has shown this past year. We would also like to thank Sue Ketcham, first semester Vice President, Roger Taylor, second semester Vice President, Mary Kemp, Secretary, and ludy johnson, Treas- urer, for their time and hard work.

Some of the enthusiasm we had a Freshmen was lost as the trials and tribula- tions of college life began to weigh heavily upon us. Yet many of the qualities that distinguished us as Freshmen were retained. Demonstrating its interest in improving the social life on campus, the class of 1971 sponsored two social events -the Barbara Lewis Show and Dance and the Showman Dance both of which were social if not economic successes. Within the SGA, the Sophomore Class sponsored class constitutions.

Plagued by a serious lack of unity, elections were held in hopes that a new organization might be born - a Freshman Class rather than just a group of Freshmen. Under the capable and willing leadership of my fellow officers, we did indeed become a class which could be proud of its accomplishments. The ohficers include Marsha White, Vice-President, Brenda Logwood, Secretary tFall termjg Isabelle Thompson, Secretary tWinter termj: and Don Bunker, Treasurer. Homecoming weekend gave birth to our first major project - a bonfire and a hootenanny sponsored by the Freshmen to boost spirit: During the final examination period for the Fall term, refreshment counters were set up in each dormitory. Numerous coat checks were employed at college activities throughout the year. The highlight of the year, however, came in February as the Freshmen sponsored the Valentines Dance featuring the Originals and the Four Winds, lt has indeed been an exciting year for the Class of 1972. One only hopes that somehow we shall remain a strong class organization, and that we may truly know the pride of accompliment. Bruce F.

And for some students the end of April did mark the end of the year. But the majority of VVesleyan's students ret-urned to Wesleyan on April 28th for the minimester program. Because most of the classes were held in the morning, afternoons were spent in much the same Way as before finals, except for the final week when students spent afternoons shopping for boxes in which to pack. ....-. --vrb - l . 1.-s-.,. - 162 IV- A QA ' jwgsa W Qv.i.'Q '1 wlwqlim Y s'i4irrrrai-atssssiigsstittt 1' u HQQNNET-.:,4i4rS2.aN ' et x -assesses?

Oh, fine. l've only got the epilogue and editor's note to do. But that presents a problem - I can be sentimental and sugarry-sweet or I can he l-don't care-whetheryou-enjoyed-it-or-not. Why don't you just be honest? So that is just what l'm going to do: The book you have just finished reading is the end result of more than nine months of preparation, not just on the part of the editor but also the staff, Mr. loe Allegood, Mr. Vance Mizelle, and Dr. Sim O. Wilde, who advised us in a special way. It is different from last year's book in that it not only records the history of the year but also presents some material that merits your thought - the first fifteen pages. As the editor of the 7969 Dissenter, l'm proud of the book and I hope that you are. 42- WML
