The University Women's Club have finished their second
bake sale of the year to contribute to the library fund.
In Student Congress a new idea has been presented
to make money for the fund. The plan is to sell relics
(bricks) of the old science hall to alumni members during
Homecoming for $10 a throw. This is in addition to the
selling of Bestline home products.
The Alumni Association during their Homecoming meet-
ing will consider ways to build this library fund.
We highly commend these organizations for their en-
thusiasm and work in contributing to the Library Building
Fund. Clearly they are an inspiration and an example to
other organizations to follow suit as well as to those who are
going for the big contributions from philanthropic foundations.

MURFREESBORO N.C. A "concept approach" to the
teaching of Spanish has been initiated at Chowan College.
The concept approach depends greatly on the logical as-
sociations. Vocabulary is treated in the same way; consequently it
is always presented in related contexts which are used as
a basis for active conversation and as source of expansion
through a associations.
The "concept' approach" of learning a language is highly
audio-lingual in the sense that "audio-lingual" means learn-
ing and speaking with the visual reinforcement of reading
and writing as skills to be acquired later.
Its main objectives are: the meaning that language serv-
es to express; the association of related structures and ideas;
an active conversation of self-expression; and creative ma-
terial for reading discussion and composition.
