Dean Carleton Announces New Attendance Policy The spring semester 1972, the faculty participated in a class attendance experiment at the request of the Associated Student Body and Alpha Chi. Attendance regulations for upper division classes were suspended. The experiment was evaluated at the May Faculty Meeting, and was discussed at some length during the Faculty Workshop Sept. 7 and 8, 1972. There was a strong feeling on the part of several faculty members that the class attendance experiment had not been beneficial. In most instances criticism centered on the need for class participation in the learning process and the difficulty of make-up work for the students who were absent. Some faculty members felt the experiment had been successful or at least not detrimental to their particular class structure. The major question which was faced by the faculty was what to do now: continue the experiment? revert to the old policy? or find a compromise position? The latter position was chosen as the faculty voted Sept. 7, 1972 to leave attendance requirements for all classes in the hands of the individual teacher. It was understood that no professor would institute attendance regulations stricter than the policy stated in the 1972-73 catalogue. In your classes the first week you should have received some written instructions stating the attendance policy. If .you have not been informed of the attendance policy in a particular class, it is your responsibility to ask the professor about it. In essence the present system allows the individual professor to establish the attendance policy in each of his classes. His policy may vary from class to class, lower division to upper division.

His native state is Texas but he came to Cal Baptist from Illinois. Fulmer has taught psychology and has also pastored churches. His latest pastorate was Westview Baptist Church in Belleville, Illinois. After considering many institutions, Fulmer chose Cal Baptist because of its Christian distinction. He is impressed with the quality of students at Cal Baptist. He is also impressed with their personal goals and objectives and their academic performance. Fulmer believes there are a few guiding principles we must incorporate into psychology in its relation to the Christian ethic. "We are all persons who share a common humanity. So rather than being judgmental, we need to share any light or direction we find with those who will receive it. This precludes any feeling of superiority we feel in relation to other persons." Fulmer is a graduate of Baylor University ('59) and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary ('63). He obtained his Masters in counseling from the University of Wisconsin ('71). He is completing his dissertation for his PHD in psychology which will be granted by Southern Illinois University. This year in addition to his teaching, Fulmer will lead the BSU sponsored Bible study and will teach one of the three adult Bible classes at Magnolia Avenue Baptist Church.

Drama Girls Take ( Gambit' on Tour Lee Scanlon, last year's acting drama department chairman,has taken his successful production of "Royal Gambit" on tour. Scanlon, who is presently instructor of drama at Brigham Young University, has asked three of the original cast members from the CBC production to join him in Provo, Utah for the production. Scanlon had originally wanted to reproduce the play with the identical cast as previously. However, due to circumstances which kept some ofthe girls unfortunately unable to get to Utah, only three of the original six girls were able to make the trip. Darlene Trailor, Jerri Eurich, and Jeannette Ware were the ones able to make the trip. "Royal Gambit" is the story of Henry VIII (Scanlon) and his six wives. The three girls who were able to make the trip left Saturday morning around nine and will be gone approximately a week. Scholarships Available There are two scholarships available from the Dorthea Van Deusen Opdyke Fund, which is designated for the "education of mountain people." TheOpdyke Committee asks that each recipient be a Baptist and from a mountainous area. The application for this scholarship may be made in the academic dean's office and should be made in the form of a letter stating that the individual meets the qualification ofthe committee. If you are a Baptist from a mountainous area, we would appreciate talking to you and you would need to make application within the next week. This is a great opportunity for the three, and all were very excited about the prospects of such a trip. The experience gained on such an endeavor is inestimable and will undoubtedly be remembered for some time by all three girls, not to mention the opportunity to perform the play again, and for undoubtedly larger audiences. Miss Trailor is a sophomore this year, but Misses Eurich and Ware are no longer students at CBC, but were during the original run of the play here. If "Royal Gambit" should receive the same lauds in Provo as in Riverside, it should be judged a dramatic success as well as a successful venture on the part of Scanlon and the three young ladies.
