Z The Gleuvflle Democrat/Pathfinder Keep good relations The small-town environment of Glenville has fostered a relationship between local citizens and Glenville State College which many residents of larger college towns would envy. The college is a much more integerated part of Glenville than colleges are in many bigger communities. The college opens its doors to Glenville for many purposes. The library, gymnasium and swimming pool are available for use by the public and several cultural programs are also open to the public. When the construction of the new tennis courts are completed, Glenville residents will realize another benefit from the college. A good town and college relationship benefits all parties. As the Search and Screening committee seeks a successor to GSC President D. Banks Wflburn, we hope they will consider a man or woman who will maintain a similar relationship. =========================================================================================== Bye-bye Butz To the Editor: I heard a most interesting political speech last week.
