Thaxton Announces
Construction Bids
This year, there w ill be a
rash of building going on at
VSC. On February 35, bids are
to be taken on the new Science
building. The building is to go
up in the field between W est

“Bids will be in the $1,250,000
area,” says Dr. Ralph Thax­
ton, college P r e s i d e n t .
ter on this year construction
will start on another boys*
dorm, right behind the present
boys* dorm. Dr. Thaxton states
that this building w ill be in the
$700,000 dollar range, but these
are only approximate prices. A l ­
so this year construction w ill
start on a student center to sur­
round the swimming pool. Th e
amount to be spent fo r this
building w ill be around $450,-
Today final inspection is to
be made on the new library
annex for acceptance.
The new women's dorm is
making steady progress.
In the future VSC hopes to
acquire more land around the
campus for m ore buildings.
One piece o f property has been
purchased. It is the Blackman
house east o f campus.
Dr. Thaxton also states that
no more money is slated to be
allotted for construction at VSC
for the next two years.

“What Do You W ant?”
In a w orld o f con form ity and static ideas it’s hard fo r a person
som etim es to rea lly know what he wants, how he fe e ls about a
particular thing or how he would react to a g iven situation. T o o
often w e have pre-conceived ideas and opinions that p rove them ­
selves w rong when allow ed to develop fu lly. Th e recent Johnny
Cash discussion bears this out.
Months ago, when the SG A m em bers began planning the w in ­
ter qu arter concert a fe w m em bers m entioned Johnny Cash. Most
students w ere surprised and treated the idea any w ay but enthusi­
astically. Th e m ajo rity o f the students w ere unsure about b rin g­
ing a country music show to VSC especially at the cost o f $2500.
W e ll, the SG A listened to the students and then tried to make
what they fe lt was the best decision. It was decided. Johnny Cash
would m ake his firs t appearance at a G eorgia c o lleg e on January
20, at VSC, and with any luck at all, he w ould possibly have a fa irly
good crowd.
I f 2.500 persons constitutes a “ fa irly g o o d " turnout at a co llege
o f 1500 students then m aybe w e'd better try fo r m ore “ fa ir ly g o o d "
concerts in the future.
I f you w ere at the concert you saw the crow d and heard tho
response. I t ’s sa fe to assume that any skeptical attitudes and unenthusiastic ideas about the concert w ere dispelled from the minds
o f the students who had possessed them, including, adm ittedly, this
I ’m not advocating that all concerts be o f the country-folk
music type from now on. Goodness no! W o naturally need variety.
But, I am advocating and suggesting that w e all congratulate the

know what w e want Individually/ it's necessary that w e support all

Seeing you want to come over

Incidentally, you may know
that it is customary fo r people

g ir l friends, etc. Th e Vietnam­
ese many times bring their girl­
friends rather than their wives
to parties, etc. Dalat recently
passed an ordinance requiring
them (natives) to be covered
from the waist up when in the
city proper. The picture is the
way they norm ally dress— with
all this talk about the topless
they overlook the fact that the
Montagnards have been doing
this fo r centuries.

For Women Only
This column is fo r women only. The men may as w ell read
elsewhere since this article holds no masculine interest.
Now that we are alone, girls, I realize that leap year was dark
and dismal for some co-eds as far as legally chasing and catching
a man; but, who says you cannot chase that certain someone il­
legally in 1965?
Since this flirtin g stuff may be a little new and difficu lt fo r
most of you, here are a few -pointers to keep in mind as you begin
Contrary to popular belief, men do not en joy being aggressive.
In fact, they would much rather have the fun without the work.
The poor things are so busy going to class, playing ping pong, and
looking for girls that they are enervated when it conies tim e fo r
your date. But, it has been a long day, so be cooperative, girls. Sit
close to himwhile he drives. Grab his hand when you get out o f
the car. Lean on his shoulder when he buys the m ovie tickets.
And when you are at the dorm door and he is tellin g you good
night, do not shake his hand and say, “ Take it easy, pal.” Instead,
play the new game called “ smacky-lips and huggy-bear.” H e w ill
appreciate your obvious affeotion.
Secondly^tfoys look fo r consideration in a girl. H elp him at
all tigxes-'tfKether he needs it or not. T reat him to a steak supper
or offer to iron his shirts fo r the next week.
On dates you should let him d rive your Mustang instead o f his
”55 Ford. And i f he wants to la k e some fellow s out every night,
what is a little gas when you know how manly he w ill feel. A ll
these little things w ill add to the bright moments in his college
career. He w ill never fo rg e t your thoughtfulness.
You must share his interests. Be a detective and discover his
favorite pastimes. F or example, be able to converse intelligen tly
on Lady Chatterly's Lover and Ulysses (you only need to know the
interesting parts . . . that’s all he w ill know).
I f you follow these suggestions closely, girls, your telephone
should be ringing at this moment. But, one word o f caution— if
you injure his male pride, you are lost. Remember, be subtle in
your pursuit; let him think he is chasing you.

Combining humor and song, the
popular Miss Carter provided
several minutes o f fun-filled
entertainment fo r all, especially
fo r the “ beady-eyed” boys.
W hen the big Mr. “ C” fin ally
appeared, there was never a

Normandy Visits VSC Students Reveals
'Last Thursday, January 21,
Miss Elsie Normandy, a repre­
sentative o f the Peace Corps,
visited the VSC campus. During
her visit Miss Normandy spoke
to several groups on campus.
Miss Normandy is originally
from Manila in the Philippines
where she attended St. Theresa’s
She was one o f the
first volunteers fo r the Peace
Corps and spent three months
in training fo r her duties. Eight
weeks o f her training w e r e
spent at Rio Abajo, Puerto Rico,
w here physical fitness w a s
stressed. Miss Normandy stated
that her morning began at 6
a.m. and included obstacle cours­
es, mountain climbing, and treks
through the rain forests. The
remainder o f her training was
taken at the University o f Puer­
to Rico after which she was sent
to Peru.
Serving with seven other vo l­
unteers, Miss Normandy spent
two years in Arequipa, Peru as
a nutritionist. H er duties con­
sisted o f visiting the homes o f
the people, talking w ith the
mothers, and teaching classes on
nutrition. In addition, she served

Christie Directs Play
“ The selection o f the cast and
production staff fo r the forth­
coming Sock and Buskin Club's
dramatic production, *The Royal
Gambit,’ is complete, and work
is w ell under way,” according
to Colonel W esley Ren Christie
o f the VSC Speech Department.
“ The Royal Gambit,” a tragi­
comedy by the prize winning
playwright Herman Gressieker
is a play concerning Henry V l i i
(M ike Jarvis) and his six wives:
Katarina o f Aragon (Cheryl
Metts), Anne Boleyn (Cindy Ses­
sions), Jane Seymour (Sandra
Belote), Anna o f Cleves (Elaine
Snipes), Kathryn Howard (San­
dy Wheaton), and Kate P a r r
(Genie Rogero).
In this play Henry represents
cne type o f modern man. Th e
aspects o f the modern age de­
velop through the erotic and
moral tragi-comedy o f his life.
The historical affairs with the
six w ives transcend history. But
it is not suggested that H enry
s t a l k s
through history or
through the centuries; m erely
that he and his w ives are aware
o f the further developm ent and
the logical conclusions o f what
he began.
Thus there is a sweep into
the future and the realization
o f the necessity to remain close
to God.
W orking behind the scenes
w ill be the production staff:
Business Manager, Bob Owens;
Stage Manager, M ike Nelson;
Costumes, M olly Huckaby; Light­
ing, H oyte Crosby; Make-up,

The play is being directed by
Colonel Christie, retired Marine
Colonel, who joined the VSC
Speech Department this past

cree from the U niversity o f
“ Th e Royal Gambit"
w ill be the first production at

Teaching Scares
Perhaps the practice teacher
has the most interesting part o f
her education when she is sent
to an area school to get practi­

and they are not always p re­

Marilou Clark, practice teach­
ing in Moultrie, Ga., admits that
all the education courses ever
offered would never prepare
one to handle every classroom

Elem entary School in M oultrie
came up w ith this question:
“ Miss Clark, do you know what

asked Marilou. Th e answer was
self-evident when the child be­
gan to gasp and grab her throat.
N o t knowing whether to shake
the child by the heels or per­
form an on-the-spot tracheo­

The big sports question around campus: Can V aldosta State
College win its fifth straight G IA C cham pionship?
The Answer: Yes. But in the w ords o f coach G ary Colson: “ It

In California, public school
teachers are now required to
include in their courses appro­
