Continuous Feeding Service Discussed for Next Semester By WAYNE TILDEN A number of propositions have been made concerning a new student center facility for CBC. One of these plans is to augment the current dining hall facilities. Should this plan go into effect, we will probably have continuous feeding next semester. The continuous food service would also expand normal meal hours. Between the regular meals snacks would be available. A continental breakfast would be served fo'r a short time after the regularly scheduled breakfast hour. Sandwiches ard cokes would be available afW lunch. Following dinner the service would provide hot snacks and packaged foods similar to the service now provided by the present student center. The service will be changed only if it will improve the quality of the overall service. Should the new student center proposition pass, and should continuous feeding be instituted, the service will provide for snacks possibly as late as ten in the evening. This service would conceivably save students money. It could provide snacks for probably less money than the student can now get them by going off campus. The convenience would be vastly greater also. Gary Collins, assistant dean, stated that "a continuous food service would be provided only to improve the quality of the service." Class Favorites Are Chosen CIEBIS English Lit Faculty Try '" Recent Class Elections Team Teaching Approach By GALE WISEMAN Students in two English literature survey classes are experiencing a new teaching technique. Dr. George Musacchio, Dr. Margaret Dana, and David Greenwalt have formed a cooperate teaching program whereby Dr. Musacchio and Dr. Dana lecture alternatively in eachclass.andGreen- walt leads discussion periods. The idea for team-teach i ng originated with Dr. Musacchio and received enthusiastic support from Dr.'Dana. Dr. Musacchio felt that it was "a waste of manpower" for each professor to prepare lectures on the same topics. According to Dr. Dana, the two professors were not satisfied with the way the English literature survey classes had previously gone; the classes seemed to drag. Since their teaching schedules worked out well for it this semester, Dr. Musacchio and Dr. Dana decided to combine efforts to enrich the classes. Each professor is now able to lecture on the topics he is most interested in for the particular area of study. A syllabus of the semester work was drawn up, and lecture topics were divided between the professors. Fortunately Dr. Musacchio'spreferences differed from Dr. Dana's. Both professors have found that lecture-sharing allows them to have more time to prepare each lecture. They are now able to provide students with study notes. Dr. Musacchio feels that students can benefit from the varied approaches to the class with lecture-sharing provides. He believes that in general the program has been successful. Dr. Dana finds team-teaching stimulating. She is interested in lectures different from her own. She is encouraged to prepare her lectures well since she knows that her co-workers will be hearing them. Added interest comes from the fact that the three can talk about the classes and share ideas. Arousing class discussion is a major problem in a large survey class according to Dr. Musacchio, Dr. Dana, and Greenwalt. This task rests in the hands ofGreen- walt, a postgraduate C.B.C. student. He joined the teaching team as a tutor. He does not lecture but leads the classes in frequent discussion periods. He is available to help students who have problems with the classes. Greenwalt said that team- teaching is, "More of a learning experience for me than anyone else." He feels that it is difficult to get a class to discuss and believes that the challenging experience will help prepare him for his graduate work. Student opinion varies in regards to team-teaching. One student pointed out that having a chance to experience more than one professor in a survey class allows a student to decide which professor he would rather have for upper-di v i s ion courses, should he have a choice. However, another student expressed a desire to hear the professor lecture whom he is paying to hear. Dr. Musacchio and Dr. Dana will be grading their classes separately, each a s s i gni ng grades in the class which he is responsible for. Results from the elections held to determine individual class favorites were the following: freshman class favorites. DonFugate, Renee Tillery; sophomore class favorites, Gregg W i 11 i am s, Jeanne Chism; junior class favorites. Art Kelly, Mary McElhan- non; senior class favorites, Fred Womack and Nancy Humphrey. Don Fugate, from Hay ward, Calif., is a freshman who is on the soccer team and is currently involved with the "Today" band. Renee Tillery is a freshman from San Jose, Calif. Sophomore class favorite Gregg Williams is a varsity basketball player from Inglewood, Calif. He is a Physical Education major. Sophomore Jeanne Chism is from Yerington, Nevada. She is a memberof the DormitorvCoun- cil. Art Kelly is a junior who is on the "Lowdown" staff. He is from Kenewick, Washington. Mary McElhannon, junior, is from Sacramento, Calif. She is the Campus Ministry Director for the Baptist Student Union. Senior Fred Womack is on the Lancer baseball team. Womack is originally from Stockton, but now lives at Lancer Arms, married student housing. He is also the president of the senior class. Nancy Humphrey is a senior from Vallejo, Calif. She is a member oftheC.B.C. Trouveres. ENTERS S.D.S.C. Ruth Fletcher, a California Baptist College graduate, has been admitted to full graduate standing in the public administration program at San Diego State College. She is working to receive a masters in public administration with a specialty in personnel adminstration. LATIN MAJOR Orlando Vacaflor, a California Baptist College graduate from Bolivia, graduated in January from San Jose State College with a M.A. degree in political science. He specialized in Latin American Government. Tickets are now on sale for the Battle of the Bands Monday night. The event will be held in the gym. People should contact Greg Attaway for further information. Grad Speakers Accept Invitation Dr. James Staples, CBC president has received confirmation of Dr. Joe Music as baccalaureate speaker, and of Wallace Johnson of Holiday Inns as commencement speaker. He is adjusting a trip to Europe in order to be with the college. In Dr. Staples' recent trip to Arizona, Oklahoma and Texas, traveling more than 3,000 miles, he reported very encouraging contacts with a number of the largest foundations in the area as well as some individuals. Foundations included theMabee Foundation of Tulsa and.Midland, The Fleming Foundation, the Walsh Foundation of Fort Worth, the H.L. Hunt Foundation of Dallas and others. Proposals have been made with each of these. The college received a check for $2,000 so that we might proceed with the purchasing of the video tape equipment that was requested. The president had a delightful experience in representing California Baptist College at the inauguration of President Tanner of Oklahoma Baptist University, he said. MISS MARIE JACKSON, Lubbock, Texas, confers with Dr. Staples about the $2,000 she donated for the purchase of video tape equipment.
