Exemplifies School Spirit
The basis for school spirit in any activity should be coopera-
tion. And one of the most active groups around our college campus
is the Music Department.
Upcoming events for the department include a choral rendition
at Poe Junior High next week. May 10, will bring another date at
the Assembly of God and on May 18, the choir will he the guest
of the Greater Corinth Baptist Church.
As students, when we cannot join this organization we should
at least encourage Mrs. Hinderman and the Music Department to
keep up the good work. Any organization is as strong as it’s weak-
est member and our college activities should be of interest to all
students in order to make each activity of equal strength. Support
our music department and it will be of a great advantage to the
school as well as you as a student.

lege Alumni Association at
At their recent meeting, mem-
bers of Mu Alpha Theta, a Na-
tional Mathematical Club, dis-
cussed the theory and mechanics
behind systems of linear and
quadratic equations. These equa-
tions involved determination of
unknown values in equations in
which three or more unknowns
exist. After their discussion and
lecture, members were allowed
to work problems in order to
clarify their doubts.
Films obtained from the math-
ematical department from the
University of Texas will be
shown at future club meetings.
Club president, Ed Fears, and of-
ficers extend to all faculty and
students a cordial invitation to
view the up-coming films. Club
meetings fall on Fridays at 10:45
a.m. in Room 211.
Since the club is composed
mostly of Sophomores enrolled
in Analytic Geometry, they will
not be returning to St. Philip’s
in the fall. Therefore, in order
to keep the club functioning, and
to retain its national charter, the
officers are seeking a represen-
tative to head a membership
drive for next year. Provisions
of the club’s charter specify that
a student must have successfully
completed College Algebra with
a grade of B or better, in order
to become a member. For further
and more detailed information,
please consult any club member.
