SAYS STUDENT OF 7:30
It's a Matter of Getting
Use to Those Early Hours
"Early to bed and early to rise
makes a man healthy wealthy
and wise" and It helps him to
get to his new 7:30 class on time.
Classes began at a new time
this morning. They began just 30
minutes earlier than previous
years. Thirty minutes difference
one way or the other in the mid-
dle of the day may not mean
much to the student. But a dif-
ference of 30 minutes In the
morning can sometimes upset a
whole day's routine.
"I DONT GET enough sleep"
is the main gripe against the 30-
minutc change. "I can't get up
that early" some students said.
Bid Night Slated
For October 3
ACC's traditional Bid Night
will be held on October 3rd at 8
p.m. in a designated parlor of one
of the women's dormitories.
Since the organizations on
ACC's campus arc not nationally
affiliated no pro-rush parties or
formal rush week will be held.
MEMBERSHIP in a social club
on this campus Is based largely
upon individual Initiative and in
terest. However there are certain
requirements an ACC student
must meet before he is ellgiblo
for admission to a social club.
He must have been a student
in ACC or a minimum of one
semester and ono full summer
term (twelve weeks) or for one
long session (nine months). Ho
must have credit for a minimum
of twenty-eight hours of resi-
dence work in ACC with an
average grade of C.
If he has been a student here
for three semesters or more his
grade average will be computed
only ftt-n the semester immedi-
ately past. In the case of trans-
fer students one semester of
work in ACC with a C average
will satisfy the membership eligi-
bility requirement provided the
student has transferred at least
one satisfactory semester of work
from another school to ACC
OTHER MEMBERSHIP re-
qulrcmcnts for the various organ-
izations arc determined according
to the individual club constitu-
tions. No member of a social club will
be permitted to take part In the
activities of the club unless he is
passing three-fifths of his work.

"For a 7:30 class that would mean
I must get up at 0:30 and In the
winter time it's still dark and
cold at that hour."
The whole problem isn't sleep.
Students carrying 0:30 classes
will go from that class to the
PREVIOUS YEARS the 10:30
chapel group had a 30-minute
break before chapel in which they
met with friends for a coke and
read their mail.
Before registration Dean Adams
felt that the new time might cause
a crowded 10:30 chapel. For thoso
not' taking a 0:30 class their re-
ward is a 30-minute break after
their 10 o'clock chapel.
Last year at certain times dur-
ing the noon hour the cafeteria
became over-crowded To relieve
this condition was the primary
reason for the change. The change
was also made to make up for
the lost hours involved in dis-
missing the Saturday classes.
SATURDAY CLASSES that's
one subject that 100 per cent of
the students interviewed disliked.
To have Saturday completely free
of classes the "I don't especially
care for the early hour" group of
students consider getting up an
extra 30 minutes early every
morning not too bad.
Tho night classes shouldn't
have as many in them this year
because the "I don't like night
classes" group will be getting up
30 minutes earlier.
FOR EARLY BIRDS those
that enjoy getting up at an early
hour thoso that get up at 5:30 in
the morning anyway and those
that wake up with the sun be-
cause it shines through the win-
dow in their face the new hour Is
Working students may take
more classes in the mornings and
then have longer to work in the
evenings. One upper classman
said. "If a person is up here for on
education he shouldn't be sleep-
ing so late anyway.'V
ONE STUDENT SUMMED up
what so many students think
"You have to get use to the idea.
It can be adjusted to. Of course
when we had 8 o'clock classes I
could get up at 7 o'clock and pre-
pare for my 0 o'clock class."
"Really though If a person can't
get up for a 7:30 class he probab-
ly can't even make a 9 o'clock
class. It wouldn't matter whether
the class started at 0:30 7:30 or
8:30 It would be all the same. We
can adjust to most any hour."

THE THOUGHT WAS CRUSHING "What does the world look like at 6:30 in the morn-
ing?" ask sophomore Judy Swofford. Senior Gladwin Gillesipe didn't know but he supposed
that it was always dark and dreary. Neither one was very optimistic about the prospects of
those 7:30 classes which began today. (All Photos by Lloyd Jones
