FOREWORD 

Time changes many things and later the meaning changes along with 
time. We have tried to capture some of the moments that have heen instru- 
mental in building the memories of the past year at Dear Old Shaw U. 

The cream of our college days is yet to be skimmed by the unseen fates 
that await us somewhere in the future. We know not how we shall be 
judged, but we have thrust forth our purest hands. 

As we turn the following pages, we see the moving forces that have made 
for a certain exactness in the pattern of our college lives. 

Success and failure, crisis and decision, time and circumstances, bitter- 
sweet happiness of class-work, chit-chat in the Campus Inn, these little 
things, among countless others, are what we remember most from our 
college years. 



ALMA MATER 

Tune: "How can I leave thee." 
Hail dear old Shaw U! 
Thy sons revere thy name 
Long shall thy works be proud, 
Undimmed thy fame 
Time shall thy praises sing. 
Glory repay thy tears. 
And loud thy praises ring 
Through all the years. 

Noble thy hall ways, 
Noble thy grassy plain. 
Nobler the hearts of men 
Where thou dost reign. 
All we who love thy name. 
Stout hearts that shall not fail, 
All rise and loud proclaim 
Alma Mater, hail! 



The Editor 




Farewell to the Graduates'1961 



Entering the School of Life! 

College days are happy days. The memory of them will linger through- 
out life. In college you have made rich and lasting friendships, wholesome 
contacts with teachers and fellow students, and through countless books 
you have communed with the scholars of the ages. Your comrades in the 
search for truth have walked with you along the paths of history, over 
the sunlit fields of literature, into the depths of scientific investigation, 
and beside the still waters of religion and philosophy. This four-year 
sojourn has widened your horizon and prepared you for the larger school 
of life where experience is the teacher, discipline must come from within, 
and where your comrades will be those who are striving to build a better 
world. Join hands with them! Always do your best! And, with hope and 
courage, make your contribution of unselfish service to mankind! 

William R. Strassner 
President

DEDICATION 



Dean Blalock, we have selected you from the rank of commendable persons that 
we have had the honor of becoming acquainted with during our four years at Shaw 
University, because your accomplishments, in particular, have inspired us. 

To a man who has sacrificed much of his first love — teaching — to become an 
equally able administrator; 

To a man who is tolerant of the views of others, who has the ability to disagree 
without being disagreeable; 

To a man whom students and all respect and admire in his efforts to make Shaw 
University a better place to live and learn; 

To Dean Charles W. Blalock, we sincerely dedicate the 1961 Bear. 




HERE WE WORSHIP 




Roberts Science Hall, which was erected in 1925, has afforded us 
an environment for the pleasant fellowship between teacher and 
student.

The Library, Tyler Hall, has given us a conducive environment 
for study, opportunity to gain information, inspiration, and enter- 
tainment.

Senior Class History 



Approximately one-hundred and sixty-two Freshmen — some alert, some 
unaware, some wise, and some few, yes green — arrived on the beautiful 
campus of Shaw University on September 13, 1957 to begin what has 
been to some their most wonderful years in life. After being orientated 
by Dr. Margarite M. Adams and some very wonderful Junior Counselors, 
the class chose their leaders for the year. Reginald Mercer was elected 
as president of the Freshman Class. Other officers were Herman Latta, 
vice-president and Mary Stephens, secretary. Betty Wright was our 
Student Council Representative. 

We were outstanding that year in every phase of endeavor. Frank 
Baker, Sherman Barge, James Eddleton, Robert Fair, Lynous Hall, Paul 
Hamilton, Glenfield Knight, Joseph Mann, Emmanuel McNair, Robert 
Neal, Tyrone Reece, and Joseph Rice represented us well on the football 
team. On the Basketball team were Thomas Alien, Fred Mills, William 
Modeste, Tyrone Reece, and Douglas Washington. They did a wonderful 
job. Frank Baker "Al" Glascoe, George Ingram, and Fred Mills were 
our baseball players. Cheerleaders were Jean Combs, Janie Everette and 
Dolores Murphy who cheered the teams to Victory! The Shawettes with 
the high stepping leader, Kathlene Hemdon, did wonders. The other 
Shawettes were .Arelene Banks. Lucille Batts, CoreUa Brown Evans, Jua- 
nita Dancy, Marjorie Green, Ann HaJl, Ann Hillard, Carolyn High, 
Ranzalyn Jones, Joan Kimbrough, Carrie Lowery, Fhilippa McNeil, 
Delois McKay, Thela Perry, Lenora Slade, Sylina Spencer, Elaine Taylor, 
and Barbara Woods. 

The lovely, Verelene Copeland reigned as Miss Freshman over the 
Homecoming activities. Her attendants were Ann Mack and PhUippa 
Mcneill. 

With a song in their heart, joining the University Chorale Society 
were Sherman Barge, Verelene Copeland, Juanita Dancy, Ella Herring 
Elliot, Willie Lassiter, Lauara Majette. Delois McKay, Reginald Mercer, 
Charles Mosely, Tyronne Reece, Lenora Slade, Mary Williams, Barbara 
Wood, and Betty Wright. 

There were actresses and actors in this class, also. The new Shaw 
Players were Corella Brown Evans, David Cobb, Janice Demory', Joan 
Kiinbrough, Philippa McNeil, Delois McKay, Esther Sneed, Crawford 
Smith, and Betty Wright. Representing the Class in the main production 
of the year, "The Little Foxes" were Joan Kimbrough and Esther Sneed. 
We were interested in the more serious side of college life also. There 
were approximately 20 making the Honor Roll. Receiving the scholar- 
ships given to the Freshman maintaining the highest academic averages, 
without condition in all work and loyal to the University life and spirit 
were Delois McKay and Sylvia Sifford. The Alpha Zeta Sigma Chapter 
of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship given to the person rank- 
ing third in the Freshman Class was received by Esther Sneed. Lucille 
Batts received the North Carolina Congress of Parents and Teachers 
Scholarship. Reginald Mercer received the Phi Beta Sigma Scholarship. 
The Home Economics Club Award, given to the Home Economics Major 
maintaining the highest average, was received by Esther Sneed. 

That wonderful Chapter of our college life was climaxed with our 
Freshmen Ball. The word "lovely" doesn't do it justice. It was simply 
"divine." 

With a somewhat smaller number, one hundred and forty-six, we 
entered once more to begin our Sophomore year in college. Tyrone 
Reece was elected as Class President, with Lynous Hall as Vice-President, 
Barbara Waddell as Secretary, and Janice Demory as Assistant Secretary. 
Mr. William Spann played the role of "father" this year guiding us and 
advising us on important matters. 

Such names as Baker, Barge, Hall, Hamilton, Knight, Mann, Modeste, 
and Reece were constantly heard on the football, basketball, and baseball 
teams. 

Miss Sophomore was the graceful Laura Vaughn. Philippa McNeil 
and Barbara Waddell were her attendants. 

The Shaw Players welcomed into the fold Carrie Lowery, Barbara 
Morris, Mary Thigpen and Delores W. Murphy. The main production 
"Elizabeth, The Queen" employed the talent and stage craft of Donald 
Ensely, "Al" Glascoe, Joan Kimbrough, Reginald Mercer, Barbara Mor- 
ris, Esther Sneed, and Crawford Smith. 

A portion of the class wandered for a week or so into the unknown — 
Greekland. 

Entering .\lpha Kappa Alpha Sorority were Lucy Bunch, Elnora Bur- 
well, Phylis Fearrington, Ann Mack, Vemetta Nickerson, Mary Parker, 
Patricia Thomas and Rixene Winbome. 

Delta Sigma Theta welcomed Lucille Batts, Marjorie Greene, Gladys 
Johnson, Carrie Lowery, Delois McKay, LaVonne Morgan, Mary Murray, 
and Sylvia Sifford. 

The members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority were Etta Davis, Janice 
Demory, Ella Herring and Hattic Palmer. 

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity welcomed into its fold Frank Baker, 
Sherman Barge, Paul Hamilton, Glenfield Knight, Joseph Mann, and 
Preston McClain. 

James Eddelton, Lynous Hall, Herman Latta, William Modeste, Robert 
NeaL Tyrone Reece and Albert Sampson shouted "cue" and became 
members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. 

Barking as Sigma Dogs do, Reginald Mercer. Charles Mosely and 
Amos Smith barked their way into Greekland by way of Phi Beta Sigma 
Fraternity. 

We were in line for even more Scholarships and Awards this year. 
Receiving letters for outstanding work in sports or as cheerleaders were 
Thomas Allan, Frank Baker, Sherman Barge, David Cobbs, Jean Combs, 
Janie Everette, Lynous Hall, Paul Hamilton, Glen Knight, Joseph Mann, 
Preston McClain, William Modeste and Tyrone Reece. 



Lucille Batts. Reginald Mercer, and Tyrone Reece received pens for 
working as Junior Counselors. 

The Home Economics Club gave awards to Lucille Batts and Esther 
Sneed. 

Receiving Intercollegiate Drama Association certificates for two years 
of service with the Shaw Players were Joan Kimbrough and Esther 
Sneed. 

Delois McKay and Sylvia Sifford received, as a result of their high 
scholastic standing the scholarship given to the two top ranking Sopho- 
mores. 

With much hard work and many unforgettable moments, we thus 
reached the close of another chapter of the most wonderful time in 
our life. 

We could hardly believe time had gone by so fast, but on September 
fourteenth, nineteen hundred and fifty-nine, ninety-six Juniors began what 
seemed to some as if it would be the most difficult of their years in 
college. 

Reginald Mercer was elected as President of the Junior Class. Sher- 
man Barge, Vice-President; Barbara Waddell, Secretary; Willie Griffin 
Assistant Secretary; Paul Hamilton, Treasurer; Charles Mosely, Chap- 
lain and our Student Council Representatives were Janice Demory and 
Joseph Mann. Our Advisor was Dean Charles W. Blalock. 

We had wonderful teams this year as a result of wonderful players 
like Baker, Glascoe, Hall, Hamilton, Mann, Modeste and Reece Glen 
Knight — All ClAA. 

The sedate Marjorie Greene reigned as Miss Junior over the Home- 
commg activities. Janice Demory and Delores Williams were her at- 
tendants. 

Other lovely Queens this year were Verlene Copeland, Sweetheart of 
the Scrollers Club of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity; Carrie Lowery 
Sweetheart of Omega Psi Phi; and Ann Mack, Sweetheart of Alpha 
Phi Alpha. Lucille Batts was Miss Home Economics. Joan Kimbrough 
reigned as Miss May Queen. Sylvia SiSord was an attendant to Miss 
Shaw University. 

The Shaw Players became famous across the state with the main 
production "Our Town." The Junior Class was well represented with 
the fine acting of Benjamin Glascoe, Joan Kimbrough and Esther Sneed 
as a part of the star cast. Other members of the cast were Joe Gray and 
Mary Thigpen. Crawford Smith was our stage worker. 

Still seeking to enter the world of the unknown, other members of 
the class became Greeks. 

Joyce Sutton and Lizzie Wilson "wormed" their way into AKA 
Sorority. 

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity welcomed "Dog Dashund" Crawford Smith 
. 1 u * J*^*'"'' .'^'^'"'^ McKay and Sylvia Sifford became members of 
Alpha Kappa Mu National Honor Society. 

Sylvia Sifford was named among the students recognized as Who's 
\Pho in American Colleges and Universities. Among the Award and 
Scholarship receivers were Lucille Batts, receiving the Mary R. Burwell 
.^ward; Lucy Bunch, the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Scholarship; 
Etta Davis, the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Scholarship; Tyrone Reece, 
receiving the E. M. Kelly Music Award and Sylvia Sifford, the B. G. 
Brawley Prize. Student Council Awards were given to Janice Demory, 
Joseph Mann, Glen Knight and Crawford Smith. 

Crawford Smith received the Intercollegiate Drama Association Certifi- 
cate as a result of two years of service with the Shaw Players. No 
awards are given for three years of service, but Joan Kimbrough and 
Esther Sneed received recognition for their years of service. 

This chapter was highlighted with our presentation of the Junior- 
Senior Prom, "Moonlight and Roses." Everyone enjoyed this gala affair. 
It was really "something" to remember. 

Then before we realized what was happening, it was September nine- 
teenth, nineteen hundred and sixty and one hundred of us were trodding 
once more to Shaw University's Campus to begin this, our final year 
at Dear Old Shaw U. We were organized with Reginald Mercer as our 
President for the third time; Sherman Barge, as Vice-President; Barbara 
Waddell, as Secretary; Willie Mae Griffin, as Corresponding Secretary; 
Paul Hamilton as Treasurer; Charles Mosely, as Chaplain, and Willie 
Lassiter, as Business Manager. Janice Demory and Glen Knight were 
our Student Council Representatives. Again we selected Dean Charles 
W. Blalock as our advisor. 

Glen Knight was selected by the New York Giants to play professional 
football. Baker, Glascoe, Hall, Hamilton, Modeste, and Reece were 
still representing us well on the football, basketball, and baseball teams 
Entering Greekland this year were Joe Louis Gray into Alpha Phi 
Alpha Fraternity; Bertha Lowery "Quacked" her way into Delta Sigma 
Theta Sorority; Felton Davis "The Lone Dog" entered Phi Beta Sigma 
Frateriiity; and Ednell Thornton entered Zeta Phi Beta Sorority. 

Making Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities were Lucy 
Bunch, Marjorie Greene, Glenfield Knight. Joseph Mann, Reginald 
Mercer, Delois McKay, Tyrone Reece, and Sylvia Sifford. 

Miss Senior was the petite, Mary Murray. Lucille Batts and Delois 
McKay were her attendants. There were many Queens in our class 
this year; yes. Seniors were well represented. 

"Miss NAACP" was Vehna Adams. Verlene Copeland was Sweetheart 
of Kappa Alpha Psi; Marjorie Greene, Sweetheart of Omega Psi Phi- 
and Ann Mack, Sweetheart of Alpha Phi Alpha. Marjorie Greene was an 
attendant to Miss Shaw. 

Many of our Seniors had shown outstanding leadership ability through 
the years. Among those were Sherman Barge who had held the following 
positions: president of the University Chorale Society, Alpha Phi Alpha

Lucy Bunch, President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority; Felton Davis,

Pre-Alumni Chapter of U.N.C.F. and Vice-President of the Shaw Players. 
The publication of the 1961 Bear, our most gratifying project in our 
four years, was a fitting climax to the most wonderful years of our lives.

The Bear Staff 



Long hours, many long hours, the Bear Staff has spent working in order to present to you— this our 
the 1961 Be*r. Copies were written; Advertisements were solicited; People were contacted; Pictures and 
Typing was done; then finally the last envelope and the rough copy were placed in the publisher's hands. 

Then we remembered "No task is ever completed without some effort." 



"all-important edition" i.f 
more pictures were made:

We could not leave without expressing our thanks to at least a few of our hardworking staff. Esther Sneed should 
be singled out as one of the most competent Associate Editors The Bear has ever had. Willie Lassiter and Lucille Batts 
were always ready to give that extra help. To Mrs. Keck in the Publicity Office we give our special praise. Even the 
long job of typing moved faster as Willie Griffin, Clarence Yancey, Paul Hamilton, Doris Taylor, Barbara Waddell and 
Albert Potter came to our rescue. One competent worker we could have never forgotten is Lavonne Morgan, our Art 

Editor. 

As you come to the end of this annual, I sincerely hope this 1961 Bear will serve to keep warm in your memories 

the many sorrows and joys that you experienced during this school year, 19601961.

CLASS PROPHECY 



Never in 1961 did we dream that someday we would actually be ridino 
in space cars. After graduation, Lynous Hal] and Herman Lalla worked 
diligently to design a space car. This year, 1971, marks the introduction 
of this new commercial space car— The Qu-Phita. Because of his distin- 
quished service in the Air Force, the designers have chosen Isiah Boykin 
to be the test pilot of Qu-Phita. Upon receiving the invitation from the 
designers, I, Delois McKay readily took time out from my position as 
supervisor of the Lynchburg Public schools to accompany them on this 
test flight. 

We met at the testing ground in Rhode Island. Naturally, when 
Shawites get together, the principal topic is Shaw and its graduates. 
Since the maximum speed of the new Qu-Phita is 1,000 miles per second, 
we decided that we could easily see all of the 1961 graduates in less 
than a day. Of course we needed to regulate the speed. 

First we visited foreign countries, because many of our classmates have 
ventured far. We can now travel freely over all the continents. Mainly 
through the efforts of William Peace, United Nations Mediator, and 
Jerimiah Walker, Secretary General of the United Nations many inter- 
national entanglements have been alleviated. 

In the Moscow Courthouse, we find Sherman Barge, the great lawyer 
who has won his fourth case in three months. His two efficient secre- 
taries are Marye Grant and Vernetta Nickerson. A few blocks from the 
courthouse we see Janie Everett, director of special education, and Frank 
Baker, head of Moscow's Athletic Department. Everywhere we turn in 
Russia, we find evidence of Shaw and especially of the contribution of 
our classmates. Glancing through the newspaper. Truth Unabridged. 
we find that the editor and journalist is none other than Margaret 
Williams. Believe it or not. there is a large American military base 
in Moscow. On the base we find Lizzie Wilson, director of Dostoyevsky's 
Kindergarten. Teaching the children of American servicemen are Elnora 
Piggie and lola Williams. 

A ten-minute flight in the Qu-Phita takes us to England. There we 
find Willie Lassiter studying at Oxford University, where, incidentally, 
Gladys Johnson is professor of Mathematics. Willie informs us that 
Tyrone Recce is now a brilliant surgeon in Vienna, Austria. We learn 
that Donald Ensley is head of the Austrian Health Department. Social 
workers in this department are Barbara Woods and Catherine Davis. 
To our surprise we discover that Carter Hicks and Sylvia Canada are 
married. Carter owns a large trucking firm. 

A few minutes' flight lands us in Paris. Esther Sneed is fashion de- 
signer for the House of Dior. Mary Alice Sanders is one of Dior's excel- 
lent seamstresses. As if this is not enough, Joyce Sutton and Ann Mack 
are the most famous Parisian models. At Dior's fashion show we find 
Laura Majette, Marjorie Hood, and Betty Davis; they do not live here, 
but they have stopped over on their trip around the world. Since our 
class has always been noted for its unitedness, we have no trouble in 
locating classmates. Upon being informed that we have two more class- 
mates in France, we head for the University of Paris where we see the 
former Carrie Lowery who is teaching French; also on the faculty is 
her husband, Robert Neal. head of the Mathematics department. 

Qu-Phita takes us to the once dark continent, Africa. The revolutions 
have ceased now because Albert Sampson and Abraham Walton have 
converted the Africans to Christianity and have led them to heights of 
civilization. Delois Nobles is also a religious missionary there. Janice 
Demory, Barbara Waddell, and Elester Brandon have established a free 
elementary school for underprivileged Africans. While inspecting their 
school, they tell us that Marjorie Credle, Grover Cordell and Willie Mae 
Griffin are in Asia. Marjorie is head of the Laosian Medical Research 
Center in Laos. Cordell is her assistant and Willie Mae is their medical 
secretary. 

Boykin now speeds the Qu-Phita so that we arrive in Hawaii in five 
minutes. It was no surprise to find Sylvia Sifford, our class valedictorian 
as the head of the English department at the University of Hawaii. 



Clarence Yancey is president of Yancey's Pineapple Company. Ora Lee 
Johnson who is now Mrs. Yancey is Chief Assistant to the President 

Qu-Phita IS well equipped with modern conveniences. En route to 
L Paso, we turned on the television to see the National Football Lea-ue 
Championship game between the New York Giants and the Baltimore 
Colts. Glenn Knight has just caught the pass which set up the winning 
louchdown, in spite of the best efforts of Al Glascoe who has replaced 
Uig Daddy Lipscomb of the Colts. 

When we arrived in Texas, we found alumni of Shaw University having 
a benefit for Shaw at the Reynolds Coliseum in EI Paso, The entertain- 
ment consisted of performance by the Mosley Trio, with Charies Mosley 
Mary Williams and Julia Hammonds. Patricia Kimbrough and Betty 
Wright were starring in the major production of the season Serving as 
their business manager is Paul Hamilton. Enjoying this fabulous emer- 
tamment were Christine Whilted, head dietitian at Goldsboro State Hos- 
pital; Jessie Baldwin, commercial artist for NBC television. Mamie 
Johnson, wife of a Texas oil man, Patricia Thomas, teacher of special 
education and chairman of the Shaw Fund, Hatlie Hockaday secretary 
and housewife; Ray Monk and Joe Louis Gray, experts in guerilla war- 
fare in the French Foreign Legion; Roland Perry, pastor of Fifth Baptist 
Church and Lucy Bunche, national president of Alpha Kappa Alpha 
Sorority. This group of Shawites raise $50,000 annually for Shaw 
University. 

Herman Latta suggests that we fly over to California. There we find 
Juanita Dancy designing clothes for Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer. Delois Mur- 
phy IS a journalist for Hollywood's noted magazine, Screen. Lucille 
Batts is working in Sacramento as a home economist. Velma Adams is 
a cosmetologist at M G M studios. She and Ann Hall are part time 
secretaries to Fred Suggs, a great Hollywood producer. 

A minute flight takes us to Seattle, Washington, where we find that 
Mary Murray, Rixiane Winborne and David Cobbs are great research 
Mathematicians. 

The bright lights and the skyscrapers of New York City loom ahead. 
Our city classmates could not remain for long in the country. Joe Smalls 
and Preston McClain have established a physical fitness school. William 
Modeste is here playing with the New York Knickerbockers. VeHene 
Copeland, Ednell Thornton, Barbara Debnam and Salina Spencer are 
teaching at a juvenile home called Children's Village in Dobbs Ferry 
New York. ' 

Washington, D. C, is our next stop. Here we learn that Crawford 
Smith IS the new Congressman and Lavonne Bivens is his secretary. Doris 
Taylor is the lovely librarian at the Library of Congress. She recently 
earned her doctorate in library science at Atlanta University. Lawrence 
Allen is the Chief Legal Counselor of the N.A.A.C.P. Over in Baltimore 
is Joseph Mann who has finally realized his dream. He is the adminis- 
trator of John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. You guessed correctly. 
Marjorie Green is his secretary. 

On our way back to Shaw, we stopped at Alexandria Virginia. We 
were amazed to find that Melo Jones was now an outstanding principal, 
partially because of his faculty; namely: Frances Stokes, Francine Carr! 
Janet Caldwell, Elnora Piggie, Fidie Rudd and Carolyn High. 

The Centennnial Fund set up by our class gives Shaw one million 
dollars a year for improvement. Thus by 1971, we see a new Shaw. The 
enrollment is now five thousand. There are numerous beautiful buildings 
and specific dormitories for each class. Tupper and Convention Halls 
are buildings of the past. Six well furnished buildings replace them. 

The Presi.ient. Dr. Reginald Mercer seems to be well qualified. The 
students no longer complain about food because La Vonne Morgan has 
created miraculous changes as dietitian of Shaw University dining hall. 
Etta Davis has joined Mrs. Cofield in the Education Department. 

Gee, it is almost dusk now. Our trip on the Qu-Phita has been 
wonderful. In a few months all of our classmates will have one. Then 
we can visit each other often. Oh we are back in Lynchburg already. 
Good-bye Lyn and Merman. I hope you have a safe trip home.

CLASS POEM 

"Adieu" 

From near and far came we here, 
To accomplish one great task; 
Tiirough tears and sorrows we have 
Come to reach this point at last. 

There shone a light that beckoned 
Us to your dear walls — Shaw U. 
And though it breaks our hears 
To leave, we must bid you adieu. 

Our time to part has finally come 

And with tear-filled eyes we greet it, 

For we realize that time goes on. 

And we must progress with it. ^ 



We leave with hearts and minds 
Fulfilled, with thy great gifts you see, 
Because you helped us realize 
That from dreams we can carve 
Our destinies. 

Janice Y. Demory 



CLASS SONG 

Tune: "Danny Boy" 

Hail Dear Shaw U., departure is before us now; 

We've laughed, we've cried, we've had our ups and 
downs, 

We've gained from thee the things we need on which 
to stand, 

And all the strength you've held within your hand. 

Chorus: 

We'll bid farewell to thee our Alma Mater; 

But we'll return to noble 01' Shaw U., 

Having lifted our voices, as we've reached for higher 
heights; 

We'll ne'er forget thee, not for once, 01' Dear Shaw U. 

To our dear friends we say to you with deep regret. 
We leave you now but please do not forget. 
The memories will always linger in our hearts. 
The time has come and surely we must part. 

Tyrone Reece
