Hunters: Review The Basics As the slow rising fog elevates from a sleeping campus and a
cold chilly morning leads to the promise of snowy days in the future, hunters of Glenville State College gather their gear and travel to a favorite hunting spot. Hopefully. after a few hours of hunting)they will return to the campus with their desired prey.
The scene I have just described is one of serene calmness but with a pull of a trigger or a slip of a foot it could turn into a nightmare of terror, the idea of being careless while hunting should al\\lOys weigh heavily on the mind of an experienced hunter. It seems that every year a human being is needlessly shot or killed by a faultless hunter. This kind of tragedy is one our campus need not experience.
I hope that all hunters of Glenville State College take time to review the basic safety rules of hunting and use these safety tips wisely. Remember hunters, your life is more important than a trophy to hang on a wall!

Ferguson Concert Reviewed How does one describe the Maynard Ferguson concert? TOO
GOOD! The band was a group of professional musicians from different states and he proved to us how he became wealthy and famous.
The selection of music \\lOS good (With the exception of too many solos) and the sound was terrific. The sound and the high notes that came out of Ferguson's trumpet were awesome. The band played numbers from their two new albums, "Hollywood" and "Storm." They also went back in time and played some of the popular, older songs. The biggest hit came when they left us "with a few words from Sylvester Stallone" by playing "Gonna Fly Now" (Theme from Rocky).
Maynard himself did act personal with the audience and seemed to be a common and entertaining person. Most of us liked this. He didn't put on airs and sit on a pedestal. As far as I am concerned, Maynard Ferguson is welcome here any time.
