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.

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
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
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.

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.

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-
-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
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.

that they can not play, specifically the hir-
ing and firing of professors. 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.

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
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
directed by Treasurer Al
Horne, held the strings to
the moneybag. The Men's

women students also
travelled to neighboring
colleges to compete. The
guided the selection of
publication editors and their
operations. The Interfaith
somewhat sidelined due to
the Convocations program
initiated this year, showed
an active interest by
sponsoring a mock US.
Homecoming activities and
the spring formal were both
coordinated by the SCA.
Yet the biggest part of
SCA work went undetected
and unappreciatecl. The
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

At a time when many

campuses were in a state of

appeared to be doing

"Hey watch your mouth! 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?"

"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.

Soon after lohn XX'riollen was

Social Commission, in tht- spring
of '68, he and Dean ,-Xlexanrler
began formulating plans lint a
three-part concert series, The

the fall of the year approached,
lohn and his stah' went ahead

students explaining the series
and ended with a final ticilset
sales drive the week before the
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
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
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.

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

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

the contestants for the
Homecoming crown were

This year for the first time, the SCA
Athletic Commission was separated into
the lvlen's Athletic Commission and the
VVomen's Athletic Commission, allowing
each division to have control over their
own budget. 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

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.

goes beyond the classroom.
Their activities are planned

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
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.

theatre productions to campus. Although not
all the vvork in the Theatre Department is
that of Wesleyan Players, their contributions
were evident throughout the year. Many mem-

Traditionally, the'VVesleyan College Theatre presents
a series of three one-act plays produced entirely by
students. This year, the practice was continued with
one change, the one-act plays were chosen to exhibit
a common theme: love. The first in the series, lean
Anouilh's "Cecile", was directed by Ann Douglas. Sam
Morris designed the set, a seventeenth century French
garden. Sean Moran played Monsieur Damiensg Eileen
O'Grady was Aramintheg Mike Dwyer performed as
the Chevalier. Angela French played the title role as
Cecile, and Dave Siple portrayed her father.
Tennessee William's "Portrait of a Madonnaf' was
directed by Barbara Brown. The apartment setting was
designed by Rick Houck. Carolyn Estes as Miss Collins,

Abrams presented effective characters. Freshmen
Frances Spransy, Robin Rawlings and David Forrest
performed convincingly in their first Wesleyan One-

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

tvventy-one long stemmed roses, signifying

"Rush" period for the fraternity, During the
vveek, an open house and several parties were
held. An eight vveek pledge period began on

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.

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

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
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."
.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.

Well, considering that this was an off-year in the English

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
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. But I won't have any trouble getting my Stl s.

Unless you're taking
Math 9 or just got
started in Math 13, you
vvon't see this simple a
formula. Math majors
soon move on to more

help of their professors:
Col, Wiltrakis, Mrs.
Harrison, and Mr.

Practice teaching means
getting up before anyone
else does, eating brealtfast in
a hurry, catching your ride to
school and being Mr. or Miss
for eight hours. All in all, an
experience youlll never
forget - even if you try,
Belore a student can take
practice teaching, he or she
must take Education l and 2-l
and Adolescent Psychology.
Courses taught hy Dre Smith
are typified by scenes like
the one to the right in which
students teach each other,
4--l-l is the arthematical way ot
referring to Wesleyans new
academic calendar of two
shortened semesters and a month
ot independent study. 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
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
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.

To their fellow Florida-bound travelers, Dr.
Wagner's Field Biology Group looked like a
good publicity stunt for Wesleyan But if they
bothered look inside the Mobile Lab, they
discovered it vvasn't a publicity stunt. Dr.

roughing it and collecting specimens of flora
and fauna of various swamp areas. While in

Class of 69:
As graduation draws near, I would like to take a
few minutes to thank, reflect and congratulate. l
would like to thank all seniors without whose help
and support our class could not have been the best
class at Wesleyan. l also owe much thanks to all who
have served as class officers in the past four years,
Special thanks should go to our officers this year:
lim Polley, Vice President, Nancy Wellons, Secretary,
Mary Ronan, Treasurer. 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.
lohn L. Porter, President

Class of '7O:
Upon our arrival in September, we
were all dismayed to find that a
breakdown of communication had
occurred over the summer months
leaving us with 7241 in the treasury.
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.
May our new ohficers strive to unify
our class even more and promote a
closer relation than has been seen in

To the Class of '71:
The 1968-1969 year has been a year of change for
the Sophomore Class. 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. My thanks go to all the
Sophomore Class officers: Ken Carter, Vice-
President, Mary Lang, Secretary, Shar Grace,

Fellow members of the Wesleyan
lt was an anxious group of high
school graduates who arrived here on
September 1, 1968 - anxious to
discover what "college life" was all
about. Orientation week was exciting
and fun, making us feel at home.
Then came a month of beanies and
general harassment which, at times,
made us wish we were at home.
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
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
Bruce F. Wright
President, Class of 1972

afternoon visits to the pool, a senior class
party, and final exams were all indications
that the 1968-69 year was ending. 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

joseph j. allegood
of american Rem,
Hi! I-low is the book?
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
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.
