JOHN’S by Jan Trzeciak About 150 of you will remember when St. John's-in-the-W ilderness invited a group of Canadian folk singers here to present an Ameri­ can Folk Mass. In May, there will be a program using rock ’n roll music at St. John's. Members of the college will participate in the American pre­ miere of William Christian’s “Pro­ digal Son.” The “Prodigal Son” is a British version set to rock 'n roll music. On Sunday, April 2, at 8 p.m., a tape recording of the “Prodigal Son”, which was just recently sent from England to Prof. and Mrs. Easter was played and discussed at the home of Prof. and Mi's. Stephen Simkins on Lake Clear. This type of program is one of many that St. John’s has planned. One Sunday after the 6:30 inter­ denominational service, Mr. and Mrs. Zampier hosted the coffee hour and reviewed Michel Quoist's “Prayers of Life.” The next Sunday, Mrs. Easter interpreted a recording of “Noye’s Fludde” (the British version of Noah’s Flood) of the Chester (England) Miracle play, set to music for children.

Buxton gymnasium on the night of Thursday, March 2. Several girls were forcing for­ estry and hotel students alike to make 10,000 artificial carnations to use in snowbanks for the 1967 W inter Weekend. “W ait ’til my father hears that I came to school to make flow­ ers!” cried one forester. But all the hard work put into decorating and organizing this “W inter Carnival” was well worth the effort. The popular band, “The Critters”, (who sing “Younger Girl” and “Dyingly Sad”), drew a crowd which filled the gym al­ most beyond capacity. They played for the “Jack Frost Festival,” the Friday night mixer for which Plattsburgh girls were the guests of honor. Tony Vincent and the Tremonts filled in the breaks for the “Crit­ ters” and also played for Satur­ day night’s formal dance, “W inter Wonderland.” Highlighting the delightful dec­ orations for this dance was a mirrored globe which hung from the center of the ceiling and re­ flected colored spotlights. In the glowing room, Edward Filipowski and Carolyn Clare were crowned King and Queen of the 1967 W in­ ter Weekend. Gracing their court (Continued on page 2) STUDENT COUNCIL by Randy Hicks Now that the W inter Weekend has passed, the Student Council is considering a number of plans for Spring Weekend, scheduled for May 12 and 13. “Student Council is proud of the success of the W inter Week­ end and I want to thank every­ one who worked so hard to make the W inter Carnival possible”, said President Curt Thompson.
