By C. Eugene Hubbard 

The month of October finds 
the 1958 election year drawing 
near an end with tension and 
bitterness between Democratic 
and Republican candidates on 
the increase. Both parties are 
lashing from all angles at each 

Democratic presidential nomi- 
nee Adiai Stevenson has chosen 
President Eisenhower's H-Bomb 
policy as tne of the major issues 
on which he plans to fight. Stev- 
en.son intends to carry his fight 
to the nation by means of radio 
and television in an attempt to 
continue his discussion on Eisen- 
hower's policies. 

Republican presidential nomi- 
nee Elsenhower, on the other 
hand, said that Stevenson and 
his democratic running mate Es- 
tes Kefauver are making a "rec- 
ord of clattering campaign ora- 
tory" and cited as examples, the 
issues of "big business" versus 
"small business", the draft, the 
H-bomb tests, national defense, 
and peace. Mr. Eisenhower also 
accuses Mr. Stevenson of politi- 
cal irresponsibility in implying 
that the republican administra-'^ 
lion cares little or nothing for 
tl-ie "Little Man." 

Progress on the Suez crises has 
been slow in developing. Accord- 
ing to United States Secretary of 
State John F. Duills. Soviet For- 
eign Minister Dmitri Shepilov 
wants to keep the Suez dispute 
sizzling. However there's a 
chance for a Suez settlement be- 
fore the November election. If 
(his happens it will be hailed as 
a person:ii triumph for Mr. Dul- 
les. Even though the Egyptians 
have been trying to soft pedal 
the Suez question they are be- 
ginnlns to feel the economic ef- 
fects of tlie Western boycott. 

Complaints have been made 
(hat Negroes in the South are be- 
in^,- deprived of tlieir voting 
rights, 'ihe United States Depart- 
ment of Justice askod Congress 
to invest ia,ate whether Negroes 
are being deprived of voting 
lights in Pierce county, Georgia 
rnd in OvachUa and Rapides 
Parishes. Lousiana. 

The American League Pennant 
winners. New York Yankees won 
a seven game world series. In 
this series the Yanks had tlie 
aid of two young pitchers who 
c o n t r 1 b uted magnificently in 
contributed megnificenfiy in 
helping the Yanks to win. In the 
fifth game of the series Yankee 
pitcher Don Larson pitched the 
first perfect game ever to be 
pitched in the history of a world 
series game. In the seventh game 
young Johnny Kucks pitched 
the Yankees to baseball's World 
Championship when he pitched 
a three hitter, defeating the 
Dodgers 9-0 

With the ending of the 1256 
world series, the Brooklyn Dod- 
gers are off on their tour of the 
Pacific and Japan. Casey Sten- 
gel has been named manager of 
tlie Yanks for two more years. 

How to Win Friends 

And Influence 

Oklahoma Daily writer Ed 
Turner has come up with a new 
way of college living which, in 
keeping with the times, he calls 
"classmanship." Briefly, he says, 
it means the knack of frustra- 
ting a well-meaning professor to 
such an extent that he will want 
to quit his chosen profession as 
an educator and go to work foi 
a munitions factory. Here are 
some of his rules: 

"First of all: always be late to 
class. Upon entering NEVER look 
meek or apologetic for disturb- 
ing the class. Appear surprised 
as if this section was scheduled 
to meet at this time or even look 
hurt that they could go on with- 
out you. Many an accomplished 
classman has caused the pro- 
fessor to thumb quickly through 
his class bulletin to see if per- 
haps they should have met at 
8:35 instead of 8:10. 

Disagree openly with the pro- 
fessor. An economics instructor 
says in his most profound and 
sonorous tones: "The theories of 
Adam Smith are the foundations 
of our modern system of eco- 
nomics." You say in an audible 
whisper: "But that's So passe" 
. . . making him look as if he had 
an old pair of plus-fours and 
was shouting 23 skidoo instead 
of delivering a lecture. 

Leavemanship is another ef- 
fective gambit that will add 
sparkle to every class room- 
About 10 minutes before the 
class is over slam your book 
shut, zip up your notebook, tuck 
your pencil neatly in your pock- 
et and begin tapping your foot 
spasmodically, whistling to your- 
self, if you are a poor whistler. 
At five minutes before the hour, 
scoot up en the edge of your 
seat, alternating your gaze be- 
tween the wall clock and your 
watch, shoaling "X minus 5. 
X minus four, X minus three" 
. . . right ap until the end of 
the hour." 


'ACP)— Freshmen and sopho- 
mores at the University of Con- 
necticut are faced with compul- 
sory class attendance this year. 
Under a new ruling, they're ex- 
pected to attend all registered 
classes and if, for any reason. 
a Freshman's number of absen- 
ces equals the number of credits 
for the course, his case will be 
called and reviewed. Penalties 
will range from restriction and 
probation to suspension from the 
University. University officials 
think the new ruling will raise 
the standards of academic 
achievement among the fresh- 
men and sophomores. 

President Addresses 
First Assembly 

On Thursday October 4. during 
the regular all-college assembly. 
Dr. W. K. PajTie. President of 
Savannah State College, deliv- 
ered his Annual Message to the 
jnembers of the college family. 
The President extended greet- 
ings to those present. 

He stated — "I believe that we 
have all assembled here at Sa- 
vannah State College because 
vv^e believe in education." If we 
go forth with this concept in 
mind, all of our experiences will 
coincide with this beUef. This 
premise will influence our ef- 
forts and activities." 

President Payne further stat- 
ed that "Our assemblies are a 
part of our educational program. 
For this reason they are compul- 
sory . . . Assemblies are not call- 
ed unless it is believed that they 
will contribute to the education- 
al program. Education covers 
more than the courses one 

The approximately one thou- 
sand persons assembled in Mel- 
drim auditorium heard the Presi- 
dent state that "Many of you 
are already facing problems that 
you liad not anticipated. You 
will face many more," One 
should long for the ability to 
face problems instead of the ab- 
sence of them. There are many 
things to be done other than at- 
tending college but attending 
college is the main job at Sa- 
vannah State College now. 

Students were reminded that 
"You are living in an age filled 
with the wonders of civilization. 
The opportunities that are pre- 
sented to college men and wo- 
men today are greater than at 
any other time. No matter what 
your state may be today as far 
as your clothes, friends, and the 
like are concerned, you are the 
possessor of a great opportunity 
if it is your privilege to attend 
college today. We believe that 
Savannah State College has a 
reservoir of advantageous edu- 
cational experiences for the 
thirsting student. If you look 
hard enough and seek earnestly 
enough, you will find them. If 
you will, you can make this aca- 
demic year 1956-57 the most il- 
luminating in your experience." 

Young lady presenting park- 
ing ticket at police station: "Did 
one of your men lose this? I 
found it on my windshield." 

Teacher: "Egbert, if you're not 
chewing gum. what is that lump 
in your mouth? Candy?" 

Egbert: "No ma'am. I'm soak- 
ing a prune to eat at lunch."

The Creative Corner 

J, Campbell, Jr. 

"A thing of beauty is a joy for- 
ever." says the poet John Keats. 
But precisely what is this thing 
which brings to the individual 
such eternal joy? Is it a face 
which with the years withers 
away like the green leaves of 
Spring with the coming of Win- 
ter? A building that crumbles 
before the onslaught of a gigan- 
tic tidal wave or an earthquake? 
Is beauty a lasting work of art 
reaching Its culmination in the 
enigmatic smile of Da Vinci's 
Mona Lisa — and the delicate 
symmetric balance of the Gre- 
cian statue, Venus de Milo? 

Is beauty a relative concept 
arising out of the personal sub- 
jective feeling of an individual, 
when confronted with a pleasing 
external object?— or is it an ab- 
solute. Invariable, universal 
concept which brings a feeling 
of joy, as expressed by Keats, 
forever to him who perceives it? 
Is beauty eternal or simply a 
fleeting phenomenon, which 
once awakening the senses to a 
supreme state of felicity, fades 
softly away, leaving one with but 
a dim, image that is never fully 
recaptured again? 

What is beauty? — the schools 
of thought are many and there 
are numwous theories — but I 
will tell you what beauty is. 
Beauty is the rising and setting 
of the eternal sun; an ephemeral 
ghmpse of a rainbow which gent- 
ly fades away at the end of a 
shower on a cool summer's day. 
Beauty is the jungle — beauty is 
the quiet, peaceful, flow of the 
tiny brook in the Dakota Hills. 
Beauty is the wild, savage, un- 
tamed, beat of the tom-toms. 
echoing across the dark, un- 
lighted, African continent — the 
restrained, melodious, and har- 
monious blending of a Classical 
symphony, floating gayly, bhss- 
fuUy. through the walls of a 
great concert hall. Beauty is the 
coming of Winter— the sad pass- 
ing of Spring. Beauty is the un- 
seen wind, rushing across plains 
and prairies, singing its joyful 
song to all. 

Beauty then, transcends na- 
tional boundries — favors no one. 
but manifests itself to all who 
can recognize and appreciate its 
qualities. Beauty abounds in na- 
ture, and in the art which man 
has created. Objects of inesti- 
mable beauty surround us every- 
day. It is up to us to learn to 
appreciate the beauty with which 
nature and man have so richly 
endowed us.

Random Thoughts 

All those stories about college 
athletes who can't spell their 
own names fall to pieces as a re- 
sult of this story. It's about Kent 
State University and comes via 
the College Crossroads column 
in the Ohio State Lantern. 

It seems Kent State has a var- 
sity filled only with athletes, 
each of whom participates in a 
varsity sport and also holds down 
an outside job. That dorm rank- 
ed above both the all-fraternity 
and all-men's grade averages for 
the past quarter. 

SSC Presents 
First Lyceum 

The Lyceum Committee of Sa- 
vannah State College presented 
on Thursday evening, October 
18, at 8:15 P.M., the Robert Jof- 
frey Dancers, one of the newest 
dance companies on the Ameri- 
can musical stage. This group's 
accent was on entertainment and 
the production was designed to 
bring a new idea in dance pro- 
grams. The program consisted 
of a combination of romantic 
ballet, dramatic dance in the 
Spanish style and musical com- 
edy dance in the best American 
tradition, with a hberal sprink- 
ling of song. 

Three leading young American 
dancers headed the company of 
seven : Glen Tetley . Beatrice 
Tompkins and Gerald Arpino. 
TV fans readily spotted Mr. Tet- 
ley who has danced on nearly 
all the major video revues. He 
has also been featured in opera 
ballet, in Broadway musicals 
and in concert dance here and 
in Europe, Since 1951 he has 
been a TV "regular" at Christ- 
mas time as a dancing shepherd 
in the annual telecasts of Gian- 
Carlo Menotti's opera, "Amahl 
and the Night Visitors." 

Beatrice Tompkins has toured 
the U. S. and Europe as soloist 
with the Ballet Russe de Monte 
Carlo and with the New York 
City Ballet. The dark-haired 
dancer was also prima ballerina 
of the San Francisco Opera. 

Gerald Arpino is another young 
veteran of TV, who has also been 
featured on Broadway in "Annie 
Get Your Gun" and "Bless You 
All" and with the May O'Donnell 
Modern Dance Company, Latin 
America has also had him as 
soloist with the Nana Goilner- 
Paul Petroff Ballet. 

A triple threat supporting per- 
former in the company is an ex- 
traordinary young man named 
John Wilson, He demonstrated 
his gifts as a dancer, a baritone 
and a pianist. At the age of 25, 
Mr. Wilson has also been teacher, 
a prolific composer and arranger 
and a director of dramatic works. 

Choreography and staging of 
the program were done by Seat- 
tle-born Robert Joffrey whose 
ballet productions for Ballet 
Theatre, for the Ballet Rambert 
of London, and for the NBC Tele- 
vision Opera Theatre have 
marked him as one of the lead- 
ing newcomers to the dance. One 
of his original ballets was fea- 
tured on the program which was 
held in Meidrim Auditorium,

The Periscope 

Cooi)eratlon, aerurdlni^ to the 
Mrrrlam-Wcb/iter Colleclati; Dlc- 
lluniuy, means worklnu Jointly 
for a miiLual benefit. Thu .same 
word when ii.sed to describe the 
actlnn.s o{ our sLudents means the oppo.slLe, Why Ls It tliat 
someUilnj; has caused the school 
spirit to sink to such a low level? 

It Is the oi)lnlon of this col- 
umn that somelhlni^ has killed 
the school .s|)lrlt of our students. 
One no lon(j:er hoars the exprcs- 
.slon, "Lel'.s i;lve It the old col- 
U'lU' try." Even the Greek let- 
ter ori',anl/atluiis are lagKlni^ 
Where Is the competitive spirit 
that we usually I'lnd In groups 
of that type? It may not have 
been noLleetl. b\it our homecom- 
Ini^ activities were aHeeted by 
this very low cooperative spirit. 
Wherever floats and cars were 
belni; decorated, very small 
groups were dohiK all of the 
work. Each of these groups was 
part of a larger group thai 
should have been working. Even 
thouuli this eohuim realizes that 
this Is a subject much loo broad 
to speak about, it also feels that 
these ob.sorvatlons must be 
placed before the public. 

Returning to the subject of 
honiec.on\lng, I should like to 
make mention of the fact that 
the float of the Campus Queen 
should always be the most boau- 

tllul. Yet. only the Student 
c;ouncll President and a few 
steadfast members of the coun- 
cil decorated the float. This 
has happened for thi' past three 
years, Why Is It that out of an 
enrollment of over one thou- 
sand, only five people worked 
on the Queen's float? It Is the 
res|)onslblllty of every student 
attending this ln.stltutlon to 
work on a jjroject of this type. 

This cohunn has expressed the 
opinion of a few; It Is up to the 
many to decide If this opinion 
win stand up under the bom- 
bardment of public criticism. At 
any rate, t'.ie '';t::t remains, . 
school is made up nmlnly of 
studenU, regardless of the num- 
ber of officials responsible for 
administration. Any school is 
only so good as the students 
that are enrolled. The success 
of any school rests on the shoul- 
ders of each Individual. He can 
let his shoulders sag and drag 
the name of the school in the 
mud, or he can hold them erect 
and carry the school's banner 

This column would like to be 
quoted as saying: "This Is our 
school; let's cooperate with all 
of Its programs: they are offered 
for the benefit of all."

Six Oav School Wcok In The Making 

within the next five years It 
may be necessary to hold college 
classe.-; on Saturdays to take 
care of the additional students 
who win be attending universi- 
ties by that time. High school 
students should be used to that 
procedure, because they will 
probably be on a six-day week 
before the college. 

In making this prediction. Dr. 
H. J. Sheffield, director of ad- 
missions and registration at the 
University of Southern Califor- 
nia, said that by using Saturday 
as a school day. enrollments can 
be expanded by as much as one- 
fifth.. He sounded the following 
warning "don't": 

"Don't offer fewer personal 
services and less individual help 
to students simply because there 
appears to be an endless supply 
with which to replace your drop 

"Don't push your part-time 
student, or students who belong 
to some other marginal category, 
out of your school without con- 

sidering them individually. Real- 
ize that nu\ny of our best citi- 
zens have worked their way 
through college at advanced ages 
and in considerably more than 
the usual four years. 

"Don't limit your enrolhnent 
to the number you can accom- 
modate In your present dormi- 
tory space. Investigate govern- 
mental and other housing plans 
that will make possible added 

"Don't expand your enroll- 
ment to a point where you can- 
not offer a sound academic pro- 
gram. Reecognize that it is 
easily possible to do little for 
too many. 

"Don't be misled Into a belief 
that the problems of admissions, 
enrollment and retention will be 
confined to undergraduates. 
Realize that graduate schools, 
professional schools, and ad- 
vanced study at all levels 
through the doctor's degree must 
be provided." 

By C Eugene Hubbard 

For the past tew months all 
the world's attention has been 
focused on the Middle crisis, 
where the .seeds of World War 
III could be .sprouting. 

After Britain and France de- 
stroyed the Soviet equipped Air 
Force of Egypt, crippled the 
small Egyptian fleet, and 
wrecked much of the organized 
land forces of that country, a 
cease-fire followed. Now the 
U. N. I.s organizing a Police 
Force that will move to enforce 
a truce. It has been reported 
that the main objective of the 
British-French action was to 
drive Egypt's dictator, Col. 
Gamal Abdcl Nas.ser, from his 
position of power; Col. Nasser, 
however, still remains in power. 
The Suez Canal is not under 
control of British troops. It re- 
mains blocked. This again is a 
failure of British-French move- 

Russia threatened to send 
what they termed volunteers for 
Egypt H army If Britain. France 
and Lsr.icl delay withdrawal of 
their troops from Lgypt and 
warned that she may use force if 
those countries defied U. N. 
peace moves. 

This Is a move Soviet leaders 
have made down through the 
years, and on many similar oc- 

Reports have been made that 
because Britain feels that the 
U. S. failed them in the Middle 
Ef\'s^ ;*rl^ls. thejj now plan- 
nilig to suppoi L IXed China's bid 
for a seat In tlie U. S. The Brit- 
ish had agreed to back U. S. 
efforts to keep Red China out of 
the U. N- for at least one more 
year in erturn for U. S. backing 
In the Middle East. 

The crisis in the Middle East 
with Its continued uprisings 
leads one to wonder: 

What lies ahead now in the 
turbulen' Middle East? 

Is the Soviet Union plotting 
another Korea type war there? 

Is World War III in sight? 

Can the U. N.'s police force 
actually maintain peace in 

Can the U. N. order any nation 

Was not the Korean war called 
a police action?

Baylor Has Dormitory 

For Married Studenis 

The $375,000 48-apartment 
dormitory Baylor University has 
built for married students is be- 
coming a "model plan" for oth- 
er universities across the coun- 
try. Dr. Roy J. McKnight, vice 
president, said that business of- 
ficers from many other colleges 
have inquired about the unique 
dormitory plan so that they may 
duplicate the ideo on their cam- 
pus. Officials of the Home and 
Housing Finance Agency also 
have expressed favorable favor 
with Baylor's pioneering ven- 

"All utilities paid" make the 
$75 monthly rental charge for 
the completely furnished and 
completely modern air-condi- 
tioned apartments "phenome- 
nally cheap," according to hous- 
ing experts. While no break- 
down is shown on the bills. Bay- 
lor officoals figure that the cost 
includes $45 rent on the space 
it.self, $10 for furniture. $10 for 
utilities, and $10 for the year- 
round heatinfi and cooling sys- 

Dr. McKnight and Dean of 
Men W. C. Perry ::dreamed up" 
the building while facing a 
critical need for housing accom- 
modations for married students. 
The apartment dormitory is ar- 
ranged in two separate buildings 

comprised of 24 apartments 
each. There are two floors, six 
apartments on each level on 
each side of the building. Long 
open porches open on each side. 
The building cost, all told count- 
ing land, construction and fur- 
niture, about S375.000 — or about 
S8.300 per unit. 

N. Y U. Professor 

Defends Fraternities 

A New York University profes- 
sor. Richard D. Mallery, recently 
defended fraternies during a 
speech before a YMCA in that 
city. Said Professor Mallery: 
"If the fraternity is what its 
enemies say it is. then It is hard 
to understand the encourage- 
ment and support that have 
been given to fraternities during 
the past century by the better 
American colleges." 

The Professor went on to say 
that the congenial environment 
found in fraternities is of great 
importance. He also added that 
residence on campus should be 
a basic requisite for campus life. 

Professor Mallery emphasized 
the fact that although a limited 
number of students live and 
work together in a fraternity, 
tolerance for differences of 
opinion, high standards of taste, 
and good conduct are developed. 
He also declared that by demo- 
cratic self government in the 
chapter house "fraternity men 
become better fitted to assume 
the larger responsibilities of the 
student council and other col- 
lege organizations. 

Mallery told the YMCA au- 
dience that a limit should be 
placed on the number of mem- 
bers in a chapter. "If there are 
over thirty," he warned, "the 
chapter will be headed for trou- 

A questioner asked the profes- 
sor if fratrnities are the nuc- 
leus of bias groups. In reply he 
said that "students in fraterni- 
ties should be allowed to pick 
their own friends."

Book Week 

Nov. 25 to Dec. 3, 1956 
Theme: It's Always Booktime 

Modern man seems to be on a 
twenty-four hour merry-go- 
round. One cannot say to him 
—"If time be heavy on your 
hands, do this or that" because 
there never seems to be any 
time left over at the end of the 
day. All America has worked 
to put more leisure time in that 
twenty-four hours by shortening 
the work week. One might well 
inquire of the use to be made of 
this prized commodity. It is 
hoped that some of it will be 
devoted to reading. It seems, 
however, that reading is fast 
becoming a lost art as so many 
people now depend on television 
and radio for information and 

Once each year the Book 
World spotlights the art of read- 
ing. The College joins in this 
annual observance. This season 
Powell Laboratory School will 
present Marjorie Barrow's play 
"The Enchanted Door" in Col- 
lege Assembly, Thursday, No- 
vember 29. The culminating 
activity will be given by the Col- 
lege Library diu-ing the Sunday 
Vesper hour. Lnmediately after 
this program Open House will 
be held in the Library. 

Won't you take some time to 
help your College celebrate Na- 
tional Book Week? 

Common Goals 
Of Everyone 

One of the results of the Self 
Study Committee at the Univer- 
sity of Wichita has been the 
formulation of desired objectives 
in a university education. The 
Committee explained that these 
objectives should be common to 
all individuals irrespective of 
their vocational odbjectives: 

1. To develop personal and 
social resources and participa- 
tio nin activities conducive to 
good physical and mental health. 

2. To develop effective citi- 
zenship through a thorough 
knowledge of the democratic 
process of political institutions. 

3. To develop the ability to 
communicate effectively through 
the spoken and written word ; 
to read and listen with under- 
standing, and to converse freely 
with persons of divergent in- 

4. To develop an understand- 
ing of the historical legacy of 
men. its contributions to the 
contempory scene, and an un- 
derstanding of the history of 
the United States. 

5. To develop the under- 
standing and practice of moral 
and spiritual values. 

6. To develop an understand- 
ing of the basic principles of the 
natural science and their impact 
on modern society. 

7. To develop basic mathe- 
matical skills and an under- 
standing of them as an instru- 
ment of reason. 

8. To develop an understand-

Is Co-Ednrolion 

New York Unlver.slty Is faced 
with the question of whether co- 
education is desirable. There 
seems to be at least a chance 
that the school . . . long a clta- 
dl for males . , . will start ad- 
mitting female students. 

Experts who conducted a 
$250,000 study of the University's 
operations have urged co-edu- 
cation at the earliest possible 
date. In support of that action, 
faculty members have presented 
the following arguments: "Co- 
education would make our stu- 
dents gentlemen .. . . Our stu- 
dents as a whole have not had 
social experience . . . tt would 
improve the social atmosphere. 

On the other hand, opponents 
of the co-education move con- 
tend that it would destroy what 
they call "the desired separa- 
tion of the student from his own 
environment," They contend 
that the University's chief ad- 
vantage is that it is not co-ed- 
ucational and that to change 
this situation would be to rule 
out this advantage. They also 
say that male students might 
lose detachment if the girls 
moved in. 

Are Entrance 
Exams Valnable? 

The question of whether ex- 
ams such as Junior College en- 
trance tests are valuable has 
been debated for a long, long 
time. The Fresno Junior College 
Rampage recntly published this 
editorial on the subject: 

Many of the students who 
take the Junior College entrance 
tests which are given each year, 
complain that th tests are bor- 
ing and time consuming and 
completely useless. 

Let us consider the facts. Most 
students entering college have 
only a vague Idea of their 
knowledge of the English gram- 
mar, literature, and vocabulary. 
They don't know wliether or not 
they are capable of handling 
English lA. Most young people 
cannot Judge the amount of fact 
tliey are able to retain from 
their rending. 

Lot's take for Instance a pre 
nu'd student and face the hard 
facts. This particular student 
had better have a whopper of a 
vocabulary and an A class read- 
ing retalnment percentage. A 
foreign language major or an 
education nuijor had beer know 
his English grammar backwards 
and forwards. This Kngltsh en- 
trance test shows wjiat particu- 
lar Individuals luck In certain 
phases of Kngllsh and what 
they ned to develop and what 
classes are best suited to Llils 

As far as the aptitude test is 
concerned you nuiy be the typo 
of person wlio knows just what 
he wants and Just what his In- 
Lorcats are. But l)ellove It or not 
there are many young people 
who have not yet found tlielr 
real InteresLs In life and who 
haven't the vaguest notion of 
what vocation they're best suited 
for. By asking the JC student 
vt^ry personal questions and 
evaluating the answers, test 
scoers can determine a student's 
Interests and vocational appl- 
Lude. And wliat could be more 
helpful to ;> t' in;i|'ri just enter-

An amendment to the require- 
ments for eligibility to hold a 
.scholarship for students attend- 
ing the University of Pennsyl- 
vania, was announced here by 
Douglas Dickson, secretary of 
the committee on scholarship 
and student aid. 

The new amendment states 
tl"iat "an undergraduate scholar- 
ship liolder nmst attain an aca- 
demic average of 3.0 for the pre- 
ceding academic year to hold a 
scholarship unconditionally for 
the n ext academic year." 

The amendment also states 
that an undergraduate scholar- 
.ship holder whose average in 
June for the preceding academic 
year is between 2.0 and 3.0 may 
have scholarship assistance re- 
newed for one probationary 
year. If his annual average is 
less than 3.0 in June for his pro- 
bationary year, his scholarship 
assistance will be subject to rev- 
ocation, Dickson said. 

A student in attendance must 
have a 3.0 average for the pre- 
ceding academic year to be elig- 
ible for the initial award of a 
scholarship, he added. 

There was an earthquake re-

Lewis was nnnu'ci to the all- 
finny team for his excellent per- 
fornmnee on the court.

Noel Wright, who shares the 
honor along with Lewis of being 
one of the toughest little men in 
the conference, is also one of 
the most effective long-shot 
artists that Savannah State has 
ever produced. Aside from be- 
ing a long-shot artist. Wright Is 
one of the fastest players on the 
team and one of the leading re- 
bounders in the conference. 

In addition to Wright and 
Lewis, the Tigers will have such 
players as Robert Robbins (Sa- 
vannah State's leading scorer 
during the early part of the 
1955-56 season*. Clevon Johnson,

Marriage and college can mix, 
according to Professor Dakln. He 
says that married students usu- 
ally make higher grades. Dakln 
believes this Is due to the In- 
creased security and resiJonsl- 
blllly. Students seem to feel that 
marriage actually helps their col- 
lege work, And, In opposition to 
many studies, Dakln said that 
the divorce rate tor college mar- 
riages Is lower than for the com- 
parable highly educated persons. 

Couniicntlng on the same sub- 
ject, a Kansas minister has said 
that college marriages are much 
more dependent on the couple's 
level of maturity, the degree to 
which they want to make a go 
of marriage, and their eounnon 
Interests than ui)on the Influence 
of college life. In other words, 
the success of a college marriage 
depends upon the same tactois 
that influence any nrarrlage.

On Thursday. December 19, 
1950 approximately one-flflh of 
the student, bo{ly and a portion 
of the faculty voted 129-39 In 
favor of the recommendations 
made by the Connnlttee on Mo- 
tor Vehicles and Regulations to 
put Into effect on a trial basis, 
whereby In the near future Sa- 
vannah State win have county 
approved school zones, red 
blinker lights at the Falllgant 
College street Intersection, traf- 
fic regulation .signs at the en- 
trance to the campus. All 
traffic will travel one way in a 
counter clockwise direction with 
a few exceptions, 

The roads that will ri^nain 
two-way are; Tayloi- Road from 
ALIiletlc Road to Palilgant Ave- 
nue, Athletic Road from the 
campus to Skldaway Road and 
the road between the Home Eco- 
nomics building and the laundry 
will I'cmain two way. To pre- 
vent violations of the rules cer- 
tain fines have been recom- 
mended and approved and all 
cars are to have stickers. 

According to the proposed 
plans, left turns near the can- 
non monument on College street 
and at the Intersection of Ath- 
letic Road and Campus Street 
between Powell Laboratory 
School and Herty Hall will be 
prohibited, the maximum cam- 
pus speed will be fifteen miles 
per hour and parking In front 
of the College Center In parking 
zones longer than ten minutes 
will be unlawful. 

The proposals require all stu- 
dents, staff members and fac- 
ulty to .secure a sticker for twen- 
ty-five cents and place the 
sticker on the lower right hand 
corner of the front windshield. 
Failure to display the registra- 
tion sticker will result in a one 
dollar fine for the first offense, 
three dollars for the second of- 
fense and five dollars for of- 
fenses above the second. Fail- 
ure to secure stickers and the 
violation of other rules will re- 
sult in fines identical to the ones 
set up for failing to display regis- 
tration stickers. 

Failure to appear and pay 
fines within five days of the of- 
fense adds fifty cents to the fine, 
excluding Saturdays, Sundays 
and college holidays. Should a 
student fail to pay his fines, his 
grades will not be issued and 
credits will not be granted. 

Fines will be paid in the comp- 
troller's office during its regular 
operating hours and records of 
student infractions will be kept 
in the Student Personnel Office. 

Offenses range from speeding 
and reckless driving to parking 
on the grass and all violators

Stuclent.s are olten reminded 
that tomorrow they will become 
lenders and therefore they 
should practice rormulntlng 
Ideas nnd foini the Imbit of ex- 
pre.sslng these Ideas. 

Words such ns these .-sound 
very encouranlnn to the stud(}nt 
at first. However, they soon r(Ml- 
llze that these ])hrases are only 
uttered because they .sound 
beautiful In democcrntic .socie- 

The mere tact that an Indlvl- 
diMil resides In certain sections 
of oiu' beloved nemocrntlc so- 
ciety prevents one from expres- 
shiK his views. In uumy areas 
students nnd certnin Rroups of 
the iiopidntlon arc not iJcrmltted 
to be expressive. They can ex- 
press their thlnldnii only ns long 
as their Ideas are not contrary 
to the existing .sentiments. 

Beln^ n resident of certnin 
nrcns Is not the only reason why 
Individuals fall to express their 
Ideas, It nuiny among us who 
cncournge the nvernge student 
to be expressive were fort\uiate 
enough to henr the average stu- 
dent express his sincere Idens or 
beliefs, chaos would result, 

A s t u d e n t Is often en- 
couraged to speak up when some- 
thing happens or Is happening 
thnt he does not condone. How- 
ever, It he makes a suggestion to 
ehnnge the numner In which 
certnin projects are hnnriled nt 

prcsent.he will be reminded that 
there nre those who know best 
becnuse of experience. He will be 
told thnt there arc Individuals 
who nre hired for the purpose 
of advl.sing when the student 
gets off the beam. When one's, 
thinking Is considered off the 
beam, many fall to observe that 
whnt was "once off" Is "now 

In many Instances, the ex- 
perienced fall to realize where 
advising ends nnd where dic- 
tatorship begins. It Is snid that 
people whose Ideas are not nc- 
cei)ted will eventunlly give up 
nnd full to be expressive. 

Since there Is no single person 
or smnll group thnt knows what 
Is best, everyone should be given 
consideration before any type of 
action Is taken, especially If 
eveiyone is lesponsible tor the 
proper pertormance of the par- 
llculni' event or Is affected by 
the decision thnt Is made.. 

It today's students are to be 
tomorrow's lenders, some of the 
factors mentioned above should 
be considered. It is snid that if 
old age were the only source of 
wisdom, the country's ideas 
would be formulated at the 
honu-s tor the aged. Evidently 
this is not true; those who will 
have to lead tomonow should 
be given nn opportunity today 
to practice for tomorrow's per- 

Those Resolutions 

Have you noticed a marked 
ditterenee in the behavior of 
your friend since he returned to 
school from his Christmas vaca- 
tion? Does he seem to be more 
serious about school, spending 
most of his time in the liibrary 
studying Instead of sitting in the 
Center talking about the various 
instructors? Does he mention 
such strange sounding names 
and places as Egypt, Yemen, and 
Ghana? Has he asked you wi>at 
is your opinion of the adminis- 
tration's new Middle East doc- 
trine? If so, you are on the 
verge of losing a good friend, 
and those happy carefree days 
you enjoyed prior to Christmas 
will be lost forever, unless you 
do something real soon about 
the situation. 

You have probably guessed the 

reason tor your friend's rather 
strnnge ways by now — but it 
you have not — the change of 
behavior has come about simply 
because he has made a few New 
Year's resolutions and is doing 
his best to keep them. This 
means either that you will have 
to change, that is, you will have 
to find out what Yemen and 
Ghana aie, what the new Mid- 
die East doctrine is i chances are 
you do not know what the old 
one wasl, spend your time study- 
ing, or lose your friend. Friend- 
ship is too precious to let a tew 
old lesolutions ruin it, so those 
resolutions will have to go. 

However, it he has kept them 
this long, you are in for trouble, 
for anyone who keeps resolutions 
for more than a tew days is

Biography as a torm of litera- 
ture offers much to a reader. It 
has the power of in.splration, ex- 
ploration and discovery. It is 
the easiest and most natural 
bridge from fiction to fact. All 
biography should be honest, 
simple, and above all. interest- 

The current titles reviewed 
here may or may not meet all 
of the standards required of a 
good biography. Their lasting 
appeal can be determined by 
time alone. But all of them are 
Interesting and highly readable. 
Why not see it they meet your 
standards for a good book? 

Fred Allen, Much Ado About 
Me, Such a title might suggest 
to a casual observer that hei'e is 
another stuffy autobiography. 
But such Is not the case at all. 
Instead, it is an amusingly told 
account of the story of John 
Florence Sullivan, of Cambridge, 
Mass., who became Fred Allen, 
America's wittiest comedian. It 
Is also the story of the rise and 
decline of that past form ot 
entertainment known as vaude- 
ville. Although the piesent gen- 
eration probably remembei-s Al- 
len best as a radio comedian, 
vaudeville was his fii-st love. Ed- 
win O'Connor, in his epilogue to 
the book, says that it is "a rare 
and wonderful book by a rare 
and wonderful man. who in spite 
of having wi'itten liteially hun- 
dreds ot the wittiest and most 
felicitous letters of our time, did 
not for a moment consider him- 
self to be really a good writer 
at all." 

Marian Anderson, My Lord. 
What a Morning. Miss Anderson 
has recorded the story ot her 
lite in a most charming and yet 
unassuming manner. She has 
often minimized her accom- 
plishments and the events which 
have happened during her career 
— especially the Constitution 
Hall episode. In spite ot her 
modesty and reticence, the read- 
er Is able to follow Miss Ander- 
son's life from her childhood, her 
first public appearance, to the 
great concert halls of the world 
and finally to her appearance on 
the stage ot the famed Metro- 
politan Opera House, One re- 
viewer has stated that her story 
is told "with the simplicity and 
dignity and graciousness people 
have come to associate with 
her." To read this book is indeed 
a rewarding experience. 

Poppy Cannon. A Gentle 
Knight: My Husband, Walter 
White, Poppy Cannon, Mrs, Wal- 
ter White, has written a love 
story as well as a biography of 
her husband. It is chiefly con- 
cerned with the last six years of 
Mr. White's life, when he was in 
the limelight ot his much pub- 
licized interracial mnri-iage. The 
author naturally includes much 
ot her own feelings and experi- 
ences which resulted from this 
union, ilt is interesting to note 
that she was often mistaken as 
the Negi'o as she was much 
dai-ker than Mr. White.) In 
spite ot the warnings received 
from their friends and colleagues 
in both races, the slights that 
were expected, to some extent. 
and the always present press, the 
couple managed to build tor 
themselves a happy lite which 
was ended by Mr, White's un- 
timely death in 1955, The author 
has succeeded in reporting on 
two worlds in a manner both 
personal and analytical, 

Billie Holiday, Lady Day Sings 
the Blues, Here indeed is what 
may be termed a very tough 
book. The famous blues singer 
writes quite plainly of what it is 
like to grow up as a child in a 
Negro slum. The shocking story 
also includes Billie's hard luck in 
her career, her marriage, and 
iLontimi^d on I'oge 3t 

A Message from the President 

In some societies there is a definite age al which the )oulh become 
iirown and assume full respon^ihillty for their oun lives. In America 
during the nineteenth century and early twentieth century, there was a 
common er>neept that the age of twenty-one for men and the age of 
eighteen for women represented the beginning of full responsibility for 
manhood and womanhood respectively, finder the changing social 
and economic conditions this concept has tended to fade out .ind 
hecome less general. In practically all levels of .'\nitriean education, 
from [he elementary ?ehooI to the graduate school, pupils and students 
are exercising degrees of responsibility. In the secondary schools and 
colleges will he found many who carry the responsibilities of full citizens. 
It is no longer a matter of age that determines the exercise of respon- 
sible citizenship. In a number of states the recognition of this tendency 
has been eneouched in laws which permit young people to vote at the 
age of Ifj. The selection of the low age limit indicates that many 
become able to participate in the affairs of the community long before 
they reach the age of eigiiteen. 

Il is t*j i)e e.\))ecte(l that the young people in our colleges toda) 
will exercise cilizenship ihroughoul their college careers. To be a good 
citizen, a college student must do more than pass his courses with a 
grade of "C". or above, or refrain from interfering with other persons 
or things. Every cilizcn, irrespective of age. needs to be informed on 
matters relating to Ihe comnmnity. its operation, its needs, and its 
ideals. To he thus equipped one must gain his information through 
personal contact, reading, visitation, learning, and observation. Stu- 
dents who do not read the newspapers, listen to the radio, watch 
television, discuss the important events of the day. are limiting the pos- 
sibilities for becoming effective eitzens. In addition to the foregoing, a 
good citizen develops opinions, participates in a limited number of 
activities, and prepares for continuous improvement and growth. 

There is little reason for college students to assume that they 
will be excused from shouldering responsibilities that grow out of 
their living and studying. A survey of how American college youth 
live. Ihink, participate and plan will reveal that they possess abilities 
to perform ihe full responsibilities of citizenship. If there are drives 
and campaigns in the community for health and other tyijes of united 
effort, Ihe students should plan lo participate in terms of their mean's 
and aiiilities. Observation reveals that many college students prefer to 
remain immature and irresponsible. To prolong the period of depend- 
ence delays the development of the individual. Wherever possible 
college students should seize the opportunity to participate in the life 
of their community and college and to contribute towards their de- 
velopment. There should be a willingness also to share the difficulties, 
rcslriclions. and regulations which are required for the moment. The 
best cilizeus today and tomorow will be those who have equipj)ed them- 
sehes as they partieipatcfl in learning and living.

dealy serious. The approach 
must be subtle and tales of the 
good old days must be intro- 
duced with caution and at the 
most opportune time. A very 
good time would be right after 
he has flunked an examination. 
after studying the wrong ma- 
terial half the night. Then you 
could remind him of the days he 
flunked without losing any 
sleep, A number of schemes can 
be thought of to put him back 
on the right track. 

How will you know when he 
has thrown those resolutions out 
of the window where they right- 
fully belong? Simple — when he 
stops entering class before the 
roll is called, stops giving cor- 
rect answers, stays out of the li- 
brary, and loses interest in the 
Far, Middle, and Central East. 

Perhaps society gains a 
knucklehead, but what is more 
important is that you will have 
regained your good old pal, un- 
changed and unconditioned by 
the educative process.

Eartha Kitt. Thursday's Child, 
Another young star of television 
and stage has set down the story 
of her life. In a mvich less shock- 
ing manner than that used bv 
Billle Holiday. Miss Kitt has 
written of her rise to fnn\e and 
fortune. She spent the first 
seven years of her life as the un- 
wanted charge of a tenant farm- 
er in North. South Carolina, 
Then she lived in Harlem as the 
ward of a psychoneurotic aunt. 
Because of a stroke of fortune. 
Eartha began singing and danc- 
ing with the Kathcrlne Dunhan\ 
troupe and she remained with 
them for several years. She be- 
gan working alone In a Parts 
nightclub where she sang "C'cst 
Si Bon" and suddenly became a 
noted entertainer. Here indeed 
is an extraordinary success story. 

Stylv ill Collt'>n's 

The first-year collegian wants 
to make tlie best adju.stmcnt 
possible to the new world about 
him, whether he's come across 
country to school, or he's attend- 
ing the local city college down 
the block. One pro-rcqulsUe to 
flttlng-in smoothly Is the way 
he looks. 

Today's college man may or 
may not be a football hero, 
trigonometry master or literary 
wizard, but one thing he will be 
is clothes-conscious, reports the 
Men's Fashion Foundation of 
Cooper's, Incorporated, manu- 
facturers of "Jockey" brand un- 
derwear and Coopers hosiery and 
sportswear. The Foundation, 
after a recent merchandising 
survey, notes that the BMOC of 
today is dubbed by many fashion 
experts the best dressed In his- 
tory. Often, the college man Is 
the pace setter in men's fash- 

Good grooming is, of course, 
the first pre-ret|uisite to any 
wardrobe requirement, the 
Foundation states, A cashmere 
jacket on an Adonis who needs a 
shower and a shave is like the 
house without the foundation! 
Once a man has acquired a basic 
list of good grooming essentials 
he's ready to learn how to look 
like a "man in a million," The 
beginning college student will 
find several new innovations for 
fall. 1956, but the staple items 
are more important than ever. 

Oxford, button-down shirts in 
colors and white, and slim ties 
in neat rep stripes and foulard 
patterns are up to the minute. 
He'll be attracted by the latest 
glen plaid and vertical .stripe 
patterns in sport jackets and 
the new lighter shades of blue 
and gray in 3-button worsted or 
flannel suits. Two pairs of slim- 
fitting, lightweight flannel or 
worsted slacks, sportshirts in 
classic styling and several 
sweaters, both the sleeveless 
pullover and the crewnecked. 
bulky, long sleeved varieties, 
will take care of his campus

You who work on college pub- 
lications and who are thus 
aware of some of the stirrings 
within professional journalism 
probably think us frenetic in 
our attitudes about freedom of 
the press. 

Tlie unhappy truth is that we 
are not emotional enough about 
the subject. You people here are 
among the generation which is 
about to inherit the United 
States — and you will inherit one 
far less free than that into which 
I and my colleagues came. 

For there has been a steady 
erosion of freedom. More and 
more doors have been closed to 
tlie press ■^ith the result that 
the people of the United States 
know less and less about the op- 
erations of their government — 
on every level. Never before 
have we faced such an appalling 
degree of governmental censor-

ship as exists at this very mo- 

Over the past several years, 
many of us in journalism have 
been batteringat these doors of 
suppression and raising a hue 
and cry. But we cannot in hon- 
esty say that we have yet suc- 
ceeded in arousing all the pub- 
lishers, editors and reporters. 

What victories we have won 
have been In the main little 
ones. And they will continue to 
be little ones until we can shake 
up and wake up every publisher 
and every editor — and a major- 
ity of our citizens— to the ter- 
rible evil that we have been bat- 

Are you aware of the system 
of governmental censorship in 
effect — a steadily creeping cen- 
sorship — w h i c h daily deprives 
you of information you must 
have if you are to make intelli- 
gent decisions? 

Some of you probably know it. 
but I do not believe that most of 
you are aware of the extent of 
this censorship — and I maintain 
that the fault is largely that of 
newspapers and newspaper ex- 
ecutives who seem to think that 
these are trifling matters and of 
no deep concern to the people. 

Is it trifling when for the first 
time in our national history we 
have saddled onto the civilian 
branches of government powers 
of regulating news heretofore 
only held by the military in 
times of war? 

It is brushed aside with the 
explanation that it is merely the 
power of classification. Classifi- 
cation, nuts! That's merely a 
pretty word for censorship. 

And they have the gall to say 
to us: "Show us where these 
classification powers have been 
abused and we will review these 

How in the name of Heaven 
can you show abuses when the 
news is blacked out from you? 

In this connection, I am speak- 
ing of President Eisenhower's 
Executive Order 10 501. This is 
the successor to the iniquitous 
10 209 which was issued by for- 
mer President Truman in Sep- 
tember. 1951. 

That original order gave to 45 
civilian agencies of government 
the right to classify information 
— "restricted." "confidential," 
"secret" and "top secret." This 
order gave these sweeping pow- 
ers to such agencies as: 

The American Battle Monu- 
ments Commission. 

The Arlington Memorial Am- 
phitheatre Commission. 

The Commission of Fine Arts. 

The Committee on Purchase of 
Blind-Made Products. 

The Indian Claims Commis- 

The National Capital Housing 

The National Capital Park and 
Planning Commission. 

The National Forest Reserva- 
tion Commission. 

And the Smithsonian Institu- 

These are just a few of the list 
of 45 agencies. Could any intel- 
ligent citizen accept powers of 
censorship given to such agen- 
cies as these? Yet this was the 
order of the Government. 

When a committee went to Mr. 

Truman to protest, that astute 
gentleman waved his hands in 
that familiar way he has and 
said: "Well, boys, you just sit 
down and write an Executive 
Order that you think will do the 
trick. If we like it. we'll take it " 

What a wily move that was. 
How could newspapermen at- 
tempt to draft a censorship or- 
der? They had to back away in 
dismay, with the President 
blandly saying, well, he'd put 
it up to them, but they weren't 
willing to cooperate. 

When Mr. Eisenhower was 
elected in 1952 we went back to 
the battle. All during the spring 
and summer and early fall of 
1953. we fought to get our story 
across to governmental officials 
—to get the order revoked. But 
it wasn't in the cards. Too many 
politicians liked what they had 
been given on a silver platter— 
and they had no Intention of 
giving it up. 

Meanwhile, the stupidities of 
bureaucracy were included in all 
the daily suppressions. There 
were — and there undoubtedly 
are today— girl clerks snipping 
articles out of newspapers and 
stamping them "Confidential," 
And so. too, with radio texts- 
texts already delivered. 

We did succeed in getting a 
compromise— one of those little 
victories I mentioned earlier, 

We were able to get 28 of those 
45 agencies tossed out of the 
censorship system — no longer 
holding the authority to classify 

And they threw us a bone by 
scrapping the "restricted" clause. 
Which meant only that "confi- 
dential" took the place of both 
"restricted" and "confidential." 

We were promised ever so 
faithfully that we were going to 
get continuous review of the 
classtficrttlon practices of the re- 
maining seventeen agencies. 
More important, said the Gov- 
ernment soberly, review would 
no longer rest with the head of 
a department. The power would 
now be In the hands of the 
President's attorney and special 

When he announced the revi- 
sion. Attorney General Brown- 
ell admitted publU-ly that "we 
actually have buildings full of 
classified documents" and he 
said the new system would work 
toward prompt declassification 
all along the line. 

The record Is that In all this 
time we have never been able to 
get the President's special coun- 
sel to discuss these matters with 
us. Indeed, we can't even get 
the courtesy of a reply to letters. 

Today, these seventeen depart- 
ments of government — civilian 
agencies like: 

The Department of Agricul- 

The Federal Power Commis- 

The National Science Founda- 

The Post Office DepartnuMit. 

The Tennessee Valley Author- 

The Departn\ents of Labor and 
Interior and Health. Education 
and Welfare, and 

The Small Business Adminis- 

all contlnvie to use this mlH- 
tary-type authority to suppres.s 
news. The Blxecutlve Order under 
which they operate provides no 
penalty whatever for abuse of 
these powers to conceal or with- 
hold lntornu\tlon that could 
safely be released. 

This Is our own Iron Curtain 
In America- a curtain that Is 
being drawn tighter all the time. 

Only last year, we In profes- 
sloniil ,|ournnllsn\ were astound- 
ed by the Defense Department's 
fatuous proposal that there 
should be screened out of non- 
serurlty news whatever inluht 
be Interesting to an enemy, This 
directive, as Issued by Secretary 
Charles E. Wilson and his depu- 
ty. R, Karl Honaman (iind later 
given Mr, Elsenhower's blessing! 
stipulated that there must be a 

determination "of whether re- 
lease or publication , . . would 
constitute a constructive contri- 
bution to the primary mission of 
the Department of Defense." 

Do you know what "construc- 
tive" means in this context? I'm 
not sure I know. What I do 
know, thougli, is that the ac- 
ceptance of this kind of formu- 
la Is the simplest way to turn all 
power Into the hands of some 
clique that can then decide to 
tell you what news you ought to 
have— based on their Interpreta- 
tion of what Is constructive for 

I am being no rabble-rouser 
when I point out that this was 
the Hitler way, the Mussolini 
way. the Stalin way. the Franco 
way, the Peron way, 

I will grant that these men In 
American Government are not 
dictatorial types. I will grant 
that they are perfectly sincere. 
But I submit that the path they 
are t'oUowlng Is u road that leads 
to a dictatorship. They arc fore- 
going the Ideal tools for the use 
of an lnscru|Julous uum or uroup 
of nu>n.

of that are even more

language.s which are acceptable 
tluit may be resorted to de- 
scribe an Incident, a situation or 
an Individual. 

The fact that there arc ao

ly liiduli'.e In or resort to pro- 
l'anlty wlii-n llu'y are atl-cmptinij; 
to bi- descriptive, forceful, col-

an untiiicsllonable that liicre are 
many wlio are unramillar with 
many of the acceptable terms 
that can be used to obtain the 
same goals as those descriptive, 
miatu-eijlable vocables commonly 
referred to as tirofanlty. 

In Institutions of higher learn- 
ing the InhablLanls are not ex- 
pected to use profanity In ob- 
taining objectives which can bo 
aceompllsiied in a more Intelll- 
geui and professional manner. 
However, In many Institutions 
the same tactics employed by 
outside unprofessional and un- 
intelligent sources are used by 
many of the low level aspiring 
professionals In our Institutions. 

Profanity used in the presence 
of male or female sliows that the 
user has been Improperly 

trained, that his culture has 
sunk below acceptable stand- 
ai'ds. tliat the user Is disrespect- 
ful and that his vocabulary is 
very limited. 

At one time it was rare indeed 
to hear profane words spoken on 
a college campus. However, to- 
day profanity seems to be as 
much a part of the age as pro- 
gressive education. Is this new 
fad due to tlie fact that ladies 
and gentlemen do not demand as 
much respc( t today as they once 
did, or Is it jomethlng that Is in- 
separable fiom ovn- present age? 

There are certain basic prin- 
ciples that must be adhered to 
If the atmosphere in a college 
environment Is to be m ore 
wholesttme than the environs of 
the gutter. Since profanity and 
the gutter arc so closely associa- 
ted, cc'Uege campuses througliout 
the world should campaign vig- 
orously to destroy this conta- 
gious, crippling malady and lo- 
cate an acceptable substitute. 

The demanding of the respect 
that is due and the enacting of 
laws prohibiting tiie use of pro- 
fanity among all who engross 
the college walls would be a tre- 
mendous move toward making 
it less difficult for strangers to 
determine whether they are 
among inhabitants of our most 
undesirable circumjacencles.

During the past four quarters 
many of the students who sup- 
port many of our activities liere 
at the college financially have 
failed to be present at many of 
the affairs which they liave 
made possible through tlie pay- 
ing of an activity fee which is 
used to sponsor many of the 
cultural programs which are 
presented liere on the campus. 

Evidently there must be some 
dissatisfaction on the part of the 
students since they do sponsor 
the activities and fail to attend 

Assuming that there Is not a 
student among us who will will- 
ingly part with his money for a 
purpose for wliich he reaps no 
benefits and yet witnessing this 
type of action every time a lyce- 
um feature is presented on the 
campus, makes the author think 
that the type of entertainment 
that is being presented is not 
chosen in accord with the senti- 
ments of the majority of tliose 
who make these features pos- 

Since there is none among us 

wlw has been a careful observer 
over a period of time wlio can 
truthfully say that our cultural 
activities, especially the lyceum 
features, liave been attended by 
at least forty per ceiit of those 
who support the program finan- 
cially, one feels as though some 
type of investigation should be 
made to determine why so few of 
the financiers are present at tlie 
concerts which they sponsor. 

If it has not dawned upon 
anyone to poll the students or 
the sponsors and let tiiem sug- 
gest or decide who shall enter- 
tain them or what type of enter- 
tainment they desire, then the 
author is recommending that the 
student body be permitted to 
select its features. When tliis 
is done, there wil be no reason to 
doubt that each feature that is 
presented in the future in the 
auditorium will have in attend- 
ance a greater majority of its 
contributors, provided that they 
are given an opportunity to se- 
lect witli advice from authorities

Officials report that sanctions 
would not force Israel to yield: 
and reports that the Commodity 
Credit Corporation notes in- 
crease in farm price loss, are 
.some major and Important is- 
sues facing our nation and the 
world today. 

Senator Byrd. a Democrat 
from Virginia, has made a pro- 
posal that Congress cut Presi- 
dent ELsenhower's $7,800,000,000 
budget by at least five billion 
dollars. In an effort to guard Inflation. Senator Byrd. 
who heads the Senate Financial 
Committee, revealed that he is 
drawing up an alternate budget 
calling for specific reductions in spendings. Byrd 
was quoted as saying that Eisen- 
hower's budget is inflationary at 
a time when our nation is fac- 
ing a definite threat of infla- 
tion. He said It represented an 
Increase In domestic spending of 
seven billion dollars over outlays 
in the fiscal year 1954. He con- 
tinued that he was still working 
on his proposed budget but it 
indicated tliat his attacks will 
be directed largely at what he 
termed "Intrenclied spending" 
on domestic projects. Senator 
Byrd added that tlie worst fea- 
ture of the President's budget 
is that almost all of the in- 
creases it proposes In non-de- 
fense spending call for perma- 
nent and not emergency spend- 

Mrs. Goida Meir reportedly 
said that hardships incidental to 
any United Nation economic 
pressure would not drive Israel 
away from the Gaza Strip and 
mouth of Aqaba. Reporters 
quoted her as saying, "Israel 
cannot leave these points with- 
out guarantees of security 
against renewed Arab raids of 
the Strip and against a renewed 
Egyptian blockade of the Gulf 
which leads from the Red Sea 
to the IsraeU Port of Elath." 

United Nations Secretary Gen- 
eral Hammarskjold worked on a 
report which he hopes will tell 
the Assembly that Israel had not 
complied with the Assembly's six 
successive resolutions calling for 

In Tel Aviv it was reported 
that Prime IVIinister Ben-Gurion 
has told President Eisenhower 
that Israel now insists on free- 
dom of the Suez Canal passage 
as part of its Sinai and Gaza 
Strip evacuation price, but later 
reports revealed that western 
diplomats predicted that Israel 
will remove its forces out of 
Egypt as a result of U. S. sup- 
port of its claim to free naviga- 
tion in the Gulf of Aqaba. 

Reports are that government 
losses in supporting farm prices 
during the Eisenhower adminis- 
tration liave been nearly three 
times greater than the total 
losses during the preceding 20 
years of the federal farm aid 
program. Deficits have been 
particularly heavy during recent 
years, reflecting accumulation of 
large surplus supplies and vigor- 
ous government efforts to get rid 
of them. 

Presidents Message 

In most of the undergraduate colleges in the United States some 
consideration Is given to religion. Many institutions have a period 
designated as religious emphasis. During this period special effort 
Is made to enlist the participation of all students and faculty 
personnel. The program usually includes the services of an outside 
Individual who has been selected for his abiUty to make contri- 
butions in the area of religion. The vigorous activity centered about 
religion usually subsides after the evaluation report. 

When one studies the extent to which religion functions in 
the life of each individual and the culture In which we live, one 
wonders how an area so important can be considered lightly for 
most of the weeks in the academic year. The limitations on In- 
clusion of religion In the curricula offerings do not offer valid 
excuse for the omission. It is evident that all of the worthwhile 
learnings which young people and adults need can not be included 
in the ordinary college curriculum. Since much of the education Is 
acquired through living and learning outside of the classroom, there 
is little ground for not providing for religion. 

In general it is true that as the Individual grows older, the in- 
dividual's responsibility for his education becomes increasingly 
greater. Many of the extra-class activities, programs and movements 
associated with the colleges and developed to answer the needs of 
students for a broader and richer period of college education indi- 
cate the recognition of this principle. The values of religion consti- 
tute some of the most fundamental needs for effective living. 
Religion assists one in developing desirable attitudes toward liv- 
ing, tolerance, respect for others, willingness to understand, and 
the integration of personality. The Christian outlook on Ufe is 
In harmony with the basic Institutions of society — the family, the 
systems of law and justice, the school, our democratic ideals, and 
our concept of a good citizen. 

A study of our history and cultural development will reveal 
that religion has been responsible for the progressive extension 
and reinterpretatlon of our ideals and goals from generation to 
generation. It is reasonable to expect that the culture will continue 
to contribute to and be influenced by religion. While this is true 
of the society in which we live, it is likewise true of the individual 
personality. Many individuals finding life difficult and void of 
meaning have never discovered what wonders religion can work. 
One does not need to travel far or to talk with many individuals

index was started to honor ap- 
proximately the top 10 per cent 
of the students. Either due to 
harder work on the part of the 
students or to liberalized grading 
on the part of the faculty, or per- 
haps due to both, the number 
of students who were recognized 
as Distinguished has increased 
over the years until 23 to 24 per 
cent of the students received 
this honor. 

It was felt that there should 
be something to honor those stu- 
dents who are receiving still bet- 
ter grades, so the new stipula- 
tions were added. In its new 
form, the code will disqualify 
any student who has an incom-

D. E. or F in any course. How- 
ever, it is still possible to be dis-

PoMell Lahoratorv School Selects 
Teacher of ihe \ear 

Mrs. Eldora Marks, a teacher at Powell Laboratory School, 
was selected Teacher-of-the-year for the school year 1957-58. She 
earned her B. S, Degree from Savannah State College and the 
M. A. Degree from Columbia University . 

The faculty and student body Hamilton. Principal, assisted by 
Mr. E. Flowers and Mr. James 

Since there isn't a zoo In Sa- 
vannah, the evening first grade 
class is busy making its own 
200. It will be located in tlie 
class room. They are learning 
many things; they are making 
animals, cages, and scrapbooks. 
The officers elected for the year 
are: President. Harriett Mason; 
Treasurer. Albertha Clemmons; 
Secretary. Thomas Lovett; Pa- 
trols. Michael Meyers and Flora 
Lee Robinson. 

The socend grades have de- 
voted a great deal of time learn- 
ing how to read more effectively. 
They are learning many pur- 
poseful and meaningful experi- 
ences through their center of 
interest, a continuation of "The 
Home" under Mrs, D, C. Hamil- 

The third and fourth grade 
classes are making plans for a 
trip in connection with their 
study on transportation. Mr. 
Trotman, of Chatham County 
Health Department, is coming 
next week to test the third 
grade learning. Mrs. E. D. Marks 
is the teacher. 

The fourth and fifth grade 
students joined a "Pen Pal Club". 
Their first letters will go to a 
fourth grade class at Baton 
Rouge, Louisiana. The letters 
will be sent as a group in one 
large envelope. Mrs. Loretta 
Palmer is teacher of these stu- 

The fifth and sixth grade 
classes are having a wonderful 
time learning to use the diction- 
ary. The pupils help plan, which 
probably accounts for their en- 
thusiasm and the success they 
are having in using the diction- 
ary, is increasing their vocabu- 
laries because they consider dic- 
tionary study to be a recreation- 
al activity. They are getting this 
training in an atmosphere of 
freedom, relaxation and ease, all 
of which are conducive to real 
learning. These provide oppor- 
tunity to observe more closely 
the speech habits of the pupils. 
Mrs. M, Wallace is the teacher 
of these grades. 

The seventh grade class has 
organized a Citizenship Club. 
The officers: President, Ethel 
Robinson; Vice President, Ar-

A Salute To (.liana 

J. C:impbon 

On March 6. 1957 the echoes 
front the sacred bells of liberty 
will reverberate throughout the 
world heralding the birth ot a 
new, free and independent coun- 
try. On that date the colorful 
Gold Coast Colony will cease its 
existence and in its place the 
new state of Ghana will emerge. 

The Gold Coast — a British 
Colony since 1874 — will become 
the newest Negro republic and 
the first black republic within 
the British Commonwealth of 
nations. On the vast African 
continent the new republic will 
become the seventh Independent 
nation, a distinction now held 
only by Libya, Egypt, the Sudan, 
Ethiopia. Liberia .and the Union 
of South Africa. 

At the head of the government 
will be Kwame Nkrumah, the 
American-educated Prime Minis- 
ter, who has labored Indefutlg- 
ably for the country's independ- 
ence. Nkrumah's task of leadhig 
the new state is far from an easy 
one. His major Job is that of ap- 
peasing the tribal chieftains, 
who fear a loss of power, because 
the new government Is to be a 
strong centralized one. 

The potentialities of Ghana 
are tremendous. Economically, 
the country is stable, with cocoa 
accounting for most of the In- 
come. Manganese, gold, dia- 
monds, and lumber arc some of 
the other money products, which 
have led to the economic stabil- 
ization of the country, aiding it 
In its drive for Independence. 

The eyes of Africa and the 
world are centered on Ghana as 
it begins to prepare tor the diffi- 
cult job that lies ahead. That 
job consists of proving to the 
world that It Is quite capable of 
self-government. Much of the 
future success of other independ- 
ent-minded African territories, 
in their bid for freedom, will rest 
upon the ability of Nkrumah to 
successfully govern the new state 
along democratic lines. 

The road to freedom has been 
a tiring and extremely difficult 
one for Ghana; now that her 
freedom is assured, it Is hoped 
by all the free world that she 
will become an example, and will 
act as a beacon, guiding the 
other colonial-dominated na- 
tions along the path to Inde- 
pendence and freedom.

Hysteria Is Shookiii^ 

(ACP— .Southern Met h o dist 
University's CAMPUS received 
and used this letter in its "letter- 
torials" column. It comments on 
a current phenomenon. 

Yesterday marked the Dallas 
opening of the late James Dean'.s 
last movie, "Giant." which is 
morbidly b ei n g exploited by 
Hollywood publicity men. The 
surge of hysteria over this mala- 
droit actor is shocking. Even 
Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan have 
stooped to hero worshipping of 
this rotten idol. Such unscrupu- 
lous propagandizing about the 
glories of reckless driving and 
cruelty to women would be lu- 
diorous. if it were not so grotes- 
quely wrong. 

Contrary to public thought 
Jimmy did not die a hero's death 
. . . No, he died as he lived, show- 
ing a wanton disregard of so- 
ciety, speeding down a Califor- 
nia highway at 90 miles an hour, 
with a mind apparently bent on 
mischief. Such grossly anti- 
social behavier scarcely warrants 
the shedding of maudlin tears. 

Actually Dean was emotionally 
immature, masochistio, uncouth, 
morose, surly and considered by 
his fellow actors as physically 
dirty . . . 

It is shameful that this maca- 
bre personality can cause the 
vilification and perversion of the 
purportedly well-balanced emo- 
tions of American youth. 

When the evil a man has done 
grows into a false myth this is 
ample reason to vitiate the vali- 
dity of the revered maxim, "De 
mortius nil nisi bonum" — speak 
nothing but good of the dead. 

We Worry and Wonder 

American college .students arc 
thinking seriously about world 
affairs. In the of student 
days, there still In time for 
thought. A DAILY TROJAN edi- 
torial reflects this. 

Seven o'clock In the evening. 
A breeze, crisp and .sharp, .shut- 
tles quietly througli the campus. 
The night Ik clean and fresh, 

Benny Morgan, 20 years old, 
gazes skyward and appraises the 
steel-Uke stai's mounted In a 
sky of clear blackness, His pants 
are tan, buckle In back . . , He 
is a college student, a sophomore. 

The loneliness of the night, 
the deserted walks and path.s, 
the stillness . . , all these Invite 
thinking. They probe the mind 
of young Mr, Morgan. He recalls 
the black screaming headlines 
of a tumultuous November. 
Headlines inspired on a foreign 
.soil, mothered and nourished by 
a beserk mankind. 

Headlines about a Communist- 
controlled people thristing for 
liberation. The rape of Hungary. 

Headlines about the Suez 
Canal as Israel and Egypt battle, 
Britain and France threaten 
war. Blood-soaked hair mats 
thickly against .smashed skulls. 

Far away from Benny Morgan. 
A million miles from the cheer- 
ing hysterical crowds of a Satur- 
day gridiron battle- A million 
miles from the grammatical con- 
struction of an English composi- 
tion. A million miles from a pa- 
rade and a smiling queen who 
surveys her campus domain with 

But war pays no homage to 
distance. The far-stained fingers 
of a grasping Europe point to 
Benny Morgan. They beckon and 
say, "The time has come . . . the 
bombs are ready .. . you are 
young and strong .. . and you 
must help Uncle Sam save the 

Not knowing when, not know- 
ing where, the uncertain mind 
of Benny Morgan questions; 
When will I have to save the 
world? Will it be now? Tomor- 
row? Or is it possible that the 
time will never come?

A special feature of the pro-

In shifting from a fellowship 
to an hUernshlp jirogram, costs 
to both the student and the In-

As Industrial development of 
South and South-east Asia 
speeds up, Japan's three-wheeled 
motorcycle trucks will probably 
bear the burden, according to 
the Japan External Trade Re- 
covery Organization. Nimble as 
mountain goats, rugged as the 
rough-hewn roads they ride 
upon, economically priced and 
maintained, they carry from 
two-and-a-half to five tons of 
cargo for 35 miles on one gallon 
of gas. Over 500,000 of these ver- 
satile motorcycle trucks are in 
use in Japan alone, all products 
of a domestic industry which 
began forty years ago.

you with the proper notification. 

When will the summons come? 
When will the postman stand 
in front of my house and deposit 
a letter that will take me from 
my home, my school, my friends? 

No. Mr. Morgan, your question 
cannot be answered this night. 
You must sit and contemplate 
a world hungry for death. You 
must wait like a thousand other

blasts almi'd at his .shortcomlnRS, 
rebuking him for lack of serlou.s- 
ness, Indifference, complacency, 
and a host of other unforKlvc- 
iible evils. He has been severely 
castlKuted, denounce d, and 
branded In lanKuaije of no un- 
certain terms. He has been 
cla.sMlflod as a moron (high or 
low-^radei who cannot speak,

Ills conduct and manners have 
been cited us more bcflttlnK a

ly he Is led to believe that his 
generation In every aspect Is 
positively the worst that has ever 
been allowed to grace tlio scats 
of any Institution of higher 

That most of the criticism 
leveled at the student omits from 
the pens and mouths of college 
teachers Is not In the least sur- 
prising, as they arc constantly 
In contact with the student and 
In the position to observe and

actions, and conduct. 

Doubtlessly much of what they 
write and say Is true— perhaps 
all of It. But at the same time, 
teachers are human (contrary 
to what some students bcllcvet 
and nu^ny of the shortcomings 
which characterize the student 

exist among them. The teacher 
has the right however, because 
of his .superior learning and po- 
sition, to publicly denounce the 
student, The shortcomings of the 
Instructors are only discussed 
surreptitiously among students, 
for not even objective criticism 
can the student make without 

The student In order that he 
may obtain a grade— a very rela- 
tive Item which varies so greatly 
among Instructors and Institu- 
tions until Its value Is greatly 
questioned— Is made to endure 
all the Idlosyncracles the In- 
structor possesses. Day after day, 
the personal dlsapolntmcnts and 
fustratlons of the Instructor are 
thrust on the student, who 
finds It necessary to listen at- 
tentively for boredom must 
never manifest Itself, 

The conduct of the student Is 
a perennial problem to the ad-

rules and regulations are set up 
for his guidance. But what regu- 
lates the conduct of Instructors? 
In many Instances their con- 
duct leaves much to be desired. 

Eventually the mediocre, poor, 
lazy student cither flunks out or 
withdraws from school; If his

expelled. But not so with the

remains and Is an endless source 
of harassment to all students, 
good and poor. 

"Tho Uia Stich Policy'' 

By I. Mclvor 

"Speak softly and carry a 
big stick" Is a portion of one of 
the famous and familiar quota- 
tions that was used by Theodore 
Roosevelt, our twenty - sixth 
President, during his tenure as 
President of the United States. 

The big stick statement comes 
from an old adage applied to 
Roosevelfs policy in Latin Amer- 
ica. The President could afford 
to use the statement from the 
ancient Proverb because he was 
backed by a powerful American 

Today the big stick doctrine Is 
still being adhered to in many 
environments, especially the 

The precept has changed 
somewhat since Roosevelt's ad- 
ministration so that it now 
reads, "Speak loudly, carry a big 
stick, and make those suffer who 
openly attack my point of view." 
To admit that students can be 
right and that individuals in all 
areas are capable of making mis- 
takes is some thing that is as 
outmoded as bell-bottom trous- 

ers in many classrooms. The stu- 
dent, however. Is and must be the 
only person who is susceptable 
to mistakes. If he is to "survive." 
Such a statement as "If you do 
not concur with my policies, you 
may leave the classroom since I 
do not cave to discuss the matter 
any further." is familiar to many 
students in Institutions of higher 
learning. Students are aware 
that this is a revised or modern 
classroom application of Roose- 
velfs policies. Very often stu- 
dents know who carry the big 
sticks and they accept the doc- 
trine that they are always wrong. 
Top officials of Institutions of 
higher learning should be grati- 
fied. I am certain, of the fact 
that they can boast of employees 
who feel as though book learn- 
ing or classroom participation or 
inhabitation is the only type of 
essential activity that college 
students should pursue in their 
attempts toward becoming well 
rounded. I must admit however, 
that classroom participation is 
the student's, or should be the 
student's, primary reason for at- 

ISt^wH of Industry 

By LenarcJ Dawson 

The author of this article feels 
that students at Savannah State 
College should be informed of 
the latest developments In In- 
du.stry. In an effort to achieve 
this, In the future this article 
will present such developments. 
It Is felt of course that first of 
all you .should know what the 
Division of Trades and Industries 
at Savannah State College has to 
offer. This Initial article pro- 
poses to acquaint you with the 
offerings In this department. 

The primary objective of the 
Division of Trades and Indus- 
tries on our campus is to train 
the minds and hands of Its stu- 
dents In such a manner that 
they may successfully pursue 
gainful employment In a .special- 
ized industry as well as in the 
teaching profession. 

This Division offers two types 
of programs. One prepares stu- 
dents of the college level to 
teach Industrial Arts or Indus- 
trial Education In the secondary 
and elementary schools. The 
other program is under the aus- 
pices of the Division Trade 
School. Students who possess at 
least an 8th grade education are 
eligible to enter this program. 

The college curriculum gives a 
strong and carefully planned 
sequence of courses in Industrial 
Arts. Industrial Education, and a 
comprehensive combination of

tending college. Being a firm 
believer that variety is the spice 
of life, I cannot concur with 
those who would not provide any 
time for co-currlcular activities. 
Being also of the opinion that 
America does advocate democ- 
racy to a certain extent. I am 
also of the opinion that class- 
room participation should not be 

Many students In our colleges 
and universities are hampered 
because of the application of the 
big stick policies in classrooms. 
When the classroom becomes a 
place of fear and uneasiness, the 
student cannot perform In a 
satisfactory manner. Some stu- 
dents never contribute to some 
of their classes because they have 
been indoctrinated by experienc- 
ed students to fear certain indi- 
viduals and the failure of the 
individuals who practice "the big 
stick policy" to cast aside "the 
big stick" makes the classrooms 
less Inviting. 

Attending assemblies, organi- 
zational meetings and other co- 
curricula functions of the college 
should be as much a part of the 
student's experience as classroom 
lectures. The lecturer frequent- 
ly describes the ideal situation in 
his unprepared or prepared, and 
often tiring lectures, whereas or- 
ganizational functions enable 
the student to prepare himself 
for some of life's problems that 
cannot be solved by digesting one 
of the many published dlsserta- 

Roosevelt's famous policy is 
used in many ways other than 
to make individuals accept a de- 
shed attitude. It has and is fre- 
quently being used to satisfy ego. 
without considering the well-be- 
ing of the suppressed. 

The big stick policy advocated 
by Roosevelt during his stay in 
office was backed by military 
power. The classroom interpre- 
tation of this policy does not 
have the type of support that 
Roosevelt enjoyed. Since the 
classroom doctrine is weaker and 
has fewer adherents, it should be 
attacked and destroyed. 

Disagreement has been one of 
the most effective and successful 
means of curing the crippling di- 
seases that have plaqued envir- 
onments. There are many who 
disagree with what is advocated 
by those who carry "the big 
stick" They, however, do not 
utter their disagreements in the 
riglit auricles loudly and fre- 
quently enough because the 
shadow of the "stick" is too 

Presidenfs Message 

When one attends college one 
leams many things which are 
not taught in the classroom. It 
is possible to compile a long list 
of the learnings which have been 
developed through extra-class- 
room contacts and observation. 
During the past five or six 
years, the college students have 
experienced the so-called "face- 
lifting" and "building booms" 
programs on their respective 
campuses. Not all college stu- 
dents have been fortunate 
enough to see a number of new 
facilities erected on a college 
campus during a single college 
generation. Few realize how 
much time is required to bring 
a building to the construction 
stage. Every building must be 
planned by an architect who 
must provide the plans and spe- 
cifications for every aspect of 
the building. This stage of de- 
velopment of a building general- 
ly requires several months or, In 
some Instances, more than a 
year. After bids have been ad- 
vert ised a contractor is secured. 
Another period is required for 
the actual construction of the 
building. Many contratcors re- 
quire a minimum of a year or 
more to construct an average- 
sized college building. Under or- 
dinary circumstances the fin- 
ished building which one sees at 
any time on a college campus 
represents continuous planning 
and working over a period of two 
or more years. 

The students of Savannah 
State College have been fortu- 
nate to experience during the 
past six years the construction of 
several kinds of educational fa- 
cilities, The Board of Regents of 
the University System of Georgia 
has completed four new facili- 
ties and it has provided for a 
continuing program of major re- 
pairs and rehabilitation. The col- 
lege is at present in the planning 
stage for two new buildings 
which are very important in the 
development of its educational 
program. The architects have 
completed plans for a new li- 
brary which will be adequate to 
meet the expanding needs of the 

institution. The structure, costing 
approximately S550.000. will pro- 
vide basic college library facili- 
ties. The building wil hnclude 
facilities for audio-visual educa- 
tion, seminar rooms, listening 
rooms for music collections. The 
building will be air conditioned 
so as to provide the best care for 
the 60.000 volumes to be d^oslt- 
ed there and to provide the best 
temperature and humidity con- 
ditions for effective study and 

A second facility now under 
construction will include a group 
of units designed to constitute a 
center for technical education. 
Classrooms and laboratories will 
be provided in the $900,000 cent- 
er for automotive engineering, 
building construction, electron- 
ics, radio and television, heating 
and air conditioning. In addi- 
tion to the above, modern labor- 
atories will be provided for the 
departments of chemistry and 
physics which are very closely 
related to all of the programs of 
technical education. The erec- 
tion of this technical education 
center will be one of the first of 
its kind in this section of the 
country. It is expected to prepare 
individuals to enter industry 
where there is an unusual and 
increasing demand for individu- 
als trained in the technological 
fields. This center and the li- 
brary building will place the col- 
lege in position to do a very 
superior educational program. 

In addition to the above, the 
Board of Education of the City 
of Savannah and the County of 
Chatham in cooperation with the 
Board of Regents of the Univer- 
sity System are constructing the 
first unit of a twelve-grade lab- 
oratory school, This unit when 
fully developed will provide for 
approximately 1.200 pupils from 
grade one through grade twelve. 
The facilities will be a part of 
the teacher education program 
of the college. Pupils will be able 
to enter nursery school and con- 
tinue their education to the bac- 
calaureate degree on the college 
campus under superior educa- 
tional conditions.

the students that the .semlniirs 
were well presented and that the 
speaker did u very good Job In

CoiK-ernlniJ;' tlie classroom dis-

that the discussions were not

a few cases It was fovmd tliiit the 
topics were asslc,ned to students 
and their reports were treated as 
ft part of rcRular class work. 

Many students thought their 
freedom was greatly restricted 
because of the week. Members 
of the Intra-murul basketball 
teams were of the opinion that 
the scheduled games should have 
been played. They regretted the 
ciincoUatlon solely bectiuse of the 
activities connected with the 

A major shortcoming was tlie 
restriction of all topics to the 
Christum Religion. Tlie theme 
proposed religion as the hope of 
a confused world; yet no at- 
tempts were made to show in 
what way the major religions 
of the world would relieve tlie 
world of its confusion. 

Another shortcoming was that 
of having only one speaker. Two 
would have been much more ef- 
fective, particularly if they repre- 
sented different faiths. 

However, these shortcomings 
are comparatively small when 
viewed against the apparent suc- 
cess of the other phases of the 
week, such as the Little Chapel, 
the drama "The Bishop and the 
Convict," the House gatherings, 
and the Communion service.

agree that he performed a tre- 
mendous job, and by far was one 
of the ablest speakers ever to

TcKlny, the February Ladles'

the family of Lt. Col. Daniel 
(Chappie) James and pays tri-

title, written by Mary Elizabeth 
V r o m a n n. Christopher-Award 
author, and Nelle Keyes Perry, 
a Journal Editor, presents the 
Jameses in the article series en- 
titled, "How America Lives. " This 
;x'ries, now in its 17th year, each 
month tells the story of an 
American family. 

Lt, Col James is now stationed 
at Maxwell Air Force Base. Mont- 
gomery. Alabama, to which in 
June tills year, he was transfer- 
red to Staff Command School. 
Previously, since 1953. he and his 
family lived at Otis Air Force 
Base, Cape Cod. There, he was 
commander of the 60th Fighter- 
Interceptor Squadron, one of the 
jet squadrons on which depends 
the air security of the East Coast, 
and one of the few virtually all- 
white outfits in the Air Force.

Chamber of Commerce Distin-

"Being a Negro and working 
up to commanding his own 
squadron was no easy job. as 
Chappie James readily admits. 
'Of course I got the breaks.' he 
says, 'but I couldn't have done 
it without Dottle."

has appeared as soloist with the 
Julliard Festival of Contempo-

Chorus, the Margaret Hillls Con- 
cert Choir and the Collegiate 
Chorale. He appeared on Broad- 
way in "Showboat" and in a road 
production of "Carmen Jones." 
Mr. Brice has also appeared on 
Godfrey's Talent Scout Show and

At an early age Eugene Brice 
sang with the Shaw Chorale. He 
was one of the first two Negro 
soloists to sing with the group 
on its nationwide tour. Brice is 
the only member of his race who 
made the historic tour with the 
Shaw Chorale to Europe and the 
Middle East in the spring of 1956. 

Robert Pritchard. the pianist. 
is a native of North Carolina and 
he received his Bachelor's and 
Master's degree from Syracuse 
University where he graduated 
with highest honors. 

All of his piano studies in New 
York have been under scholar- 
ship. His teachers were Carl 
Friedberg and Robert Goldsond 
and he is presenteiy under the 
tutelage of Hans Neumann. 

In 1953 he toured the Midwest 
and made appearances in Europe 
in 1955 where he was successful 
personally and musically. 

Aside from playing Mr. Prit- 
chard also lectures. In the win- 
ter of 1956 lie presented lecture- 
recitals at Barnard College in 
New York. 

His tours of the South in the 
spring of 1957 will be the first in 
this area. 

Academic Freedom 
And The Student 

"A student in an American 
school or college is subject to au- 
thority and at the same time is 
being educated towards free- 
dom." The moral responsibility 
facing both the college and stu- 
dent in the problem of academic 
freedom has been brought into 
focus with the publication Aca- 
demic Freedom & Civil Liberties 
of the Student, the pamphlet 
published recently by the Ameri- 
can Civil Liberties Union. It is 
the first statement by the ACLU 
to deal solely with activities. 

The 12 page pamphlet covers 
five problem areas: student or- 
ganizations, student publications 
on campus and elsewhere, stu- 
dent speeches and forum partici- 
pation, general disciplinary 
methods of college administra- 
tions, and the educaional insti- 
tution and its public relations. 
The student's responsi'bility as a 
campus citizen and as an off- 
campus citizen is discussed and 
a series of problems are posed. 
This publication will be included 
in the Academic Freedom Week 
Kit now being prepared for dis- 
tribution to member schools. Ad- 
ditional copies may be obtained 
through the American Civil Lib- 
erties Union, 170 Fifth Avenue.

General Motors Presents 
Science Show 

"Previews of Progress," the 
world-famous General Motors 
stage show which spotlights 
science in action, was presented 
in Meldrim Auditorium on Fri- 
day. March 8 at 11:40 am. 

The forty-minute show fea- 
tured for the first time the Gen- 
eral Motors Sunmobile. the mini- 
ature car that actually runs on 
the power of the sun. The pro- 
gram was also packed with other 
demonstrations depicting the 
role that science plays in indus- 
trial progress. 

Other features of the non- 
commercial free show which 
seeks through previews to in- 
spire more students to enter 
science and engineering were the 
demonstrations showing how 
synthetic rubber could be pro- 
duced in 60 seconds, an action 
history of the jet engine, the 
flying of a egg on a stove that 
remained cold and a demonstra- 
tion of the micro-wave relay that 
sends long distance telephone 
conversations and television 
programs across the country. 

Each year more than three 
million students and adults view 
these previews. The previews 
were presented by a two-man 
team and were narrated in 
understandable, non - technical 

"Previews of Progress" has 
been seen by 13 million students 
and adults in the United States. 
There are now twelve two-man 
teams operating in this country 
who cover 180.000 miles a year. 
There are another twelve units 
touring Canada. Europe, South 
Africa. Australia and New Zea- 

Approximately 3.000,000 
foreigners have attended these 
previews and the show has won 
wide acclaim from educators and 
civic and fraternal organizations 
for its success in awakening in- 
dividuals to the importance of

the local and naional chapters 
explaining their position, from 
the local and national Pan-Hell

accompanying article, entitled, 
"Main Disher with a Southern

shares her favorite recipes with 

Chappie's drive and talent she 
attributes to his mother, and 
Chappie says of his mother, "She 
has the most indomitable spirit 
I've ever seen. My mother be- 
lieves that the eventual end of 
segregation depends on Negro 
achievement. Prove to the world 
that you can compete on an equal 
basis. Show by your accom- 
plishments that you are good and 
intelligent and worthy, I don't 
say don't fight it with legisla- 
tion or with any proper means, 
but I don't say you'll do much 
good that way either. Achieve- 
ment will do it." More than fifty 
years ago Mrs. James established 
the L. A. James Private School 
next door to their home. She 
taught all her children through 
the eight grade and though now 
in her late seventies and crippled 
with painful rheumatism, she is 
still teaching from a wheel chair.

S.S(J To Lose 
.{ Star PI ay < IS 

By O. Nathaniel Weaver 

Three of Savannah State's 
most colorful basketball players, 
Noel Wright, Robert (Robbiei 
Lewis, and Clevon Johnson, have 
played their final season for the 
Tigers. The Tigers finished the 
season with top honors three of 


the four years that they were 
niembei's of the team and were 
runners-up only cnce. 

Noel 'Snuify) Wright was a 
member of the All-Conference 
Team for all his four years. His 
speed, accurate shooting and su- 
perb dribbling proved very lielp- 
ful to the squad. He gained the 
recognition of being one of the 
most colorful players in the 
S.E.A.C. Conference and of this 
basketball region. 


Robert (Robbiei Lewis was 
selected to the All-Conference 
Team on three occasions. He was 
cne of the most effective and 
ace urate long-shot artists seen 
in this section of the country. . 
Being selected to the AII-S.E.A.C. 
Team was nothing new for 
Lewis since he made the All- 
Army where competition was 
much greater. 

Clevon Johnson had his best 
seasons during his freshman and 
sophomore years. His ability to 
sccrc when goals were needed 
most and his rebounding ability 
were some of the abilities he po- 
sessed that enabled the Tigers 
to be the top S.E.A.C. team three 
of the four years he participated.

There arc many dlssutlsfleil 
Indlvldimls followlnfj; elections. 
Many nl' the dlssiitlsned Indivi- 
duals hecoine this way bi^eause 
ol' the shock reeclved when they 
dlseoveri'd, al'ter elections, that 
the expected support did not 
really exist. 

Tin- del'eatetl candidates, alon^ 
with tlielr supporters, are posi- 
tive that Ihey were not i^'lven 
justice, It Is astoun(iln(!i to see. 
ufti'i- elections, so many Indivi- 
duals wlio ari^ unaware that Jus- 
tice Is the only thlnii that can be 
nu'ted out after an eleetltiii. 
Should mercy hr icpluccd by 
Justice, every candidate would be 
a winner, When some candidates 
lose an eli'ctlon that they con- 
sider Impartant, many ot them 
compensate by saylnn that the 
Indlvkhuils who conducted the 
election (^heated or they |ilv<' 
various other excuses to compen- 
sate lor the inability to aceeijl 
u defeat. 

Defeat Is, 1 uiust admit, one nf 
the bitter pills that must be 
swallowed. The Individuals who 
can take deh-at In stride are 
few. Tlu-refore, election officials 
consider It muisual when there 
Is an election and there are nii 
accusations made. 

I Imagine that It Is an Indi- 
vidual's pero^atlve to suspect 
I'vcryone when the most wanted 
and soufiht after positions In u 
nlven situation are at stake. 
Those who never trust cannot be 
trusted. Inorder for an Individ- 
ual to have faith In himself, he 
must have faith In others. 

There are. and will always be. 
those who will be disappointed 
over the selections that are 
made. There Is. however, the ma- 
jority who Is satisfied. Environ- 
ments In which disagreement 
and dissatisfaction exist are our 

healthiest areas. Without disa- 
rm I" e e m e n t and dissatisfaction, 
(here would never be progress 
or attempts made to correct 
existing weaknesses. 

II' there are any among us who 
are going to a(r(|ulre some gray 
strands your candidates 
did not win, 1 aui hoping that 
you will remember that spilled 
ndlk cannot be recovered. If 
your dl.ssatlsfactlon was real, you 
would have campaigned In a 
niori- vigorous manner for the 
candidates which you favored 
and It Is veiy jiosslble that the 
election headlines would have 
lead different. 

Many of us fall to realize that 
the masses do not select their 
leaders. Leaders, for the most 
part, emerge Into prominence, 
and the people m e rely go 
through the formality of nomi- 
nating and casting votes. 

The election Is over. The win- 
ners have bci'n annomiced, and 
the ballots have been counted. 
The winners and the losers are 
either happy or sad, and you 
have, 1 Lun certain, elected the 
persons that you considered to 
be best qualified tor the ki-y po- 
sitions that are to be filled dur- 
ing the 1957-58 school year. 

If there were mistakes nuide, 
they cannot be erased until an- 
other election unless there are 
those among us who know the 
implications of the term "Im- 
peachment," Impeachment, how- 
ever. Is not proper imless there Is 
a mistake or after the elected 
have had an opportunity to prove 
their worth. The only thing left 
for the unhappy minority to do 
Is to accept the fact that the 
election Is over and remember 
that ballots, not complaints, win 

A Salute To The Timers

were the undefeated and undis- 
puted champions of the South 
Eastern Athletic Conference this 
term. They were foremost In 
every sport that was sponsored 
by the S.E.A.C. during the 1956-

The football, basketball and 
track championships were all 
won by the Tigers who attend 
the school located by the sea. 
The Tigers can boast that In 
1957. Savannah State, aside from 
being the school where grassy 
plains and palms abound, is also 
the school where all of the first 
place trophies given by the 
S.E.A.C. during 1956-57 can be 

Winning the football crown 

was more significant than all of 
the others, because it was Sa- 
vannah State's first grid title 
In several seasons. 

The athletes and the coaches 
should be commended for the ex- 
cellent performances that were 
made on the gridiron, the bas- 
ketball court and the track field 
during the past school term. The 
athletes and other members of 
the student body should be proud 
of Savannah State's 1956-57 rec- 
ord. This year for the first time

From what we read and see. 
But let me tell you 
About the south and me. 
I was born in the south. 
But not of my choice. 
Concerning that matter 
I didn't have a voice. 
Each of my grandparents 
Was born a slave. 
But their souls remained free 
Even to the grave. 
Northerners ask, 
"Why stay in the south? ■ 
You've got to be careful 
Of your actions and mouth. 
You were born poor. 
And you'll die poor; 
You'll never have anything to 

But I say in 1885 
My grandparents were freed; 
They were put on their own 
To acquire their every need. 
If they survived In the south. 
Why can't I? 
I will fight to make things 

Until the day I die, 
I was born during the depression 
When the struggle for hfe 
Was the only obsession. 
I was raised In poverty 
But today 1 live; 
I have learned to take 
As well as give. 
Now I'm a man, 
And I'll take my stand. 
And mould my future 
With my own two hands.

Presidents Message 

The month of May to the College student may mean any one 
or a number of things to those who are looking forward to grad- 
uation in June. It represents the last mile in the achievement of 
an Important goal. As candidates for graduation near the comple- 
tion of their undergraduate work, they often look at their records 
and evaluate their collegiate experiences. In their preparation to 
leave college the candidates plan and think about the future. Those 
who have already made decisions become anxious over the new 
goals that they have set. Those who have not made up their 
minds have a tendency to worry about their prospective future. 
The decisions which they must make are important and they bear 
a definite relationship to the role which the Individual will play 
In an adult society. Some candidates will prolong their period of 
dependency by entering graduate school which will allow them 
another year or two In which to find themselves. 

To the undergraduate who plans to continue his education 
In the fall many questions arise. Some will wish to continue school 
during the summer quarter In order to reduce the time required 
for the baccalaureate degree or to enrich and extend their format 
education. A few will use the summer as a time to make up work 
that has not been completed satisfactorily during the past year. 
Generally the largest group of students will be leaving the Institu- 
tion for the summer session. In most instances they will seek 
employment for the purpose of earning funds to continue their 
education. Summer employment has been the most Important 
single source through which students have been able to finance 
their education. Students who value education will seek employ- 
ment during the summer vacation period. It Is believed by many 
that much of the experience gained by students through summer 
employment has considerable educational values — thus summer 
employment becomes an opportunity for the extension of one's 
education as well as the financial basis for the baccalaureate pro- 
gram. Students who practice thrift and wise expenditure of their 
funds gain training in proper budgeting and planning. 

The students of Savannah State College are now in the midst 
of the process of making decisions. The decisions made will be 
influential in determining their careers. The College possesses 
many resources for individuals who find themselves faced with 
making choices. The library with its books, magazines, newspapers, 
and guides will provide information needed to arrive at a solution. 
In addition to the material resources, the student will find human 
resources that are abundant In the members of the faculty. Their 
training, experience, outlook and vision place them In a position 
of unusual value during this period. In the student's search for 
such assistance, he must select the sources in a manner similar 
to the way in which he chooses his books or periodicals. The de- 
cision, however, to be of value must be one that the student makes 
on the basis of his own thinking.

on "Rising Enrollments and 
Changing Campus Patterns." em- 
phasizing in his keynote speech 
tlie need for more active and re- 
sponsible student participation 
In meeting problems created by 
the pressures of increased en- 
rollments, citing self-discipline 
and orientation as two critical 
areas, Columbia University's As- 
sociate Provost William Fels 
stressed similar points In his 
address, Two panels of faculty 
and USNSA officers considered 
alternative approaches to the 
problems of rising enrollments 
and the probable future of stu- 
dent government programming 
in the face of this problem.

Tri Semester Plan 

Unless some other method is 
found to alleviate the crowded 
classroom conditions at Florida 
State University, students may 
be faced with the prospects of 
more night and Saturday classes. 

Looking toward the future, Dr. 
Hugh Stickler, head of the edu- 
cational research department, 
admitted the possibility of a tri- 
semester plan. The scholastic 
year would be divided into three 
16-week semesters. According to 
this plan. 48 weeks would be 
equivalent to a regular scholas- 
tic year. 

Dr. Stickler noted the possi- 
bilities and limitations of such 
a plan: 

It would serve more students 
with less equipment. 

Graduation would be possible 
in three years instead of the 
regular four. 

Vacations would be only four 
weeks a year. 

The plan is not part of the 
present day educational culture 

Summer work would be im- 

It would cause a lack of time 
for maturing factors of a student 
in college. 

ed by the measure, with students 
being given 15 years for repay- 
ment. The ioans would bear the 
same interest rates as other gov- 
ernment obligations. 

Before a loan could be made, 
however, certification would be 
necessary from the educational 
institution "that it has found 
the applicant quaUfied for such 
course of study or training and 
that it is wilhng to admit him."

East Still Bastion 
Of F<>rc'igii 

A svirvey of 971 American col- 
lege,'- and universities reveals 
that the East remains a bastion 
of modern foreign languages 
leaehlng, particularly In the 
numbers of different languages 
offered students. Of the top 11 
collegiate language centers In 
the nation, six were found to be 
111 tile East, three In the Mid- 
west, and two In the Far West. 
l''ar In fri nt Is Columbia Uni- 
versity where 41 huiKimges were 
being tniiRht during the 1954- 
55 period of the unique survey. 
Second and third ranking insti- 
tutions were Harvard, teaching 
'M dirtereni modern languages, 
and Yale, teacillng 25. 

The survey was conducted by 
the IforelKn LunKUage Program 
ot the Modern Language Asso- 
ciation of America which sot out 
tour years ago to make the most 
Intensive language fact-finding 
survey in the history ol the Unt- 
ied States. The survey unearthed 
iiumy other inteiestlng facts 
about languages in American in- 
stitutions of higher learning, 
some eonfirniing existing be- 
liefs, utiiers quite startling to 

Perhaps most startling oT all 
was the fact tiiat 311 institutions 
reported they offer no modern 
foreign language instruction at 
all. while '11)3 exactly 
lialf of tlu> 1171 re|)ortlng_snid 
Hiiy offer no otlier foi'elgn lan- 
'■iiage Instruction than In 
l''reneh, H|juiilsli, and Oerman. 

The survey confirmed the tact 
that I''rench remains the most 
luvoi'ed f ]• e I g n language In 
America. A total of 1105 Institu- 
tions of the !)7I reiiorted In.struc- 
tlon In It'reneh. However, Span- 
ish had climbed to a close second 
by the 1I1B4-B6 acttdomlc year, 
being taught In 807 institutions, 
ii .scant 3B .schools behind French. 
Oernmn stood third with 825 
.schools, and Italian fourth with 

'I'he influence of thc^ Soviet 
Union's ijo.sltlon in the modern 
world Is clearly reflected in the 
tact that Ru.s.sian Is now taught 
In 183 .schools, making It the 
titth-ranking modern language 
taught In the U.S. After Ru.s.sian 
the number of institutions otter- 
ing each Individual language fell 
off .sharply. Portuguese running 
a weak sixth with 60 centers, 
and .Swedish with 31. 

In a survey prologue. Professor 
William R. Parker, recently re- 
signed as Executive Secretary 
of the MIA and now on the In- 
diana University EnglLsh facul- 
ty, notes that 72 per cent ot the 
world's total population— some 
one billion, nine hundred million 
person.s — .speak as natives a lan- 
guage other than "those usually 
taught In American colleges and 

The survey gives graphic evi- 
dence of this. Chinese, .spoken 
by some 600,000,000 persons, tor 
example. Is taught In only 29 
schools. Japanese, spoken by 
100,000,000 Is ottered by only 22

000.000 speakers) by only 20. 
Hindu-Urdu, spoken by 150,000,- 
000 persons In India, Is listed by 
only six Institutions, and Malay, 
spoken by another 70,000.000, by 
only five institutions. 

In fact, the survey — listing 78 
world languages spoken by a mil- 
lion or more speakers natively — 
show.s that 58 languages are 
taught by five or fewer schools. 
Ot this 66, a total of 27— includ- 
ing such great tongues as Java-

rathi i28 millions(. Gujarati (20

Hausa (nine millions), Swahili

taught nowhere at all in the

The Savannah State Collegt- 
"TiKer.s" won their second and 
third game of the season by beat- 
ing South Carolina Area Trade 
School U-7 and 6-3 In Denmark, 
South Carolina. The tigers dis- 
played their hitting power In the 
first game with Louis Ford and 
Ray Fuller supplying the power. 
Ray Fuller collected with a trip- 
le In the first Inning with a mate 
aboard and Louis Ford hit his 
first home-run of the season in 
the third with a man on base. 
Willie Ludden won his second 
game of the season without a 

The Tigers were never in ser- 
ious trouble in the second game, 
because the ace of the mound 
staff. Moses King, could do noth- 
ing wrong. King struck out the 
first five men to face him and 
the hitting of Albert Lee, Robert 
Porter, Ray Fuller, Earl Nelson, 
and Louis Ford completely sub- 
dued the opposition. King helped 
his own cause by collecting three 
.singles and struck out fourteen 
batters, the highest for a "Tiger" 
pitcher this season.

The Spotlight 

By Ernestine Hiil 
This picture of Jeannette Mir- 
iam Baker was taken a year ago 
when she graduated from Evans 
County High School. Claxton. 
Georgia. I feel that this picture 
is appropriate in that all over 
the United States other High 
school seniors are preparing to 
make this all-important step. 

Let us look into Ihe life of 
one of the many young ladies 
who felt that a high school edu- 
cation was not enough. What 
she has accomplished should in- 
spire other young people to fol- 
low in her footsteps. 

Tn a year's time at Savannali 
State College. Jeannette has 
been accepted as a member of 
Ihe Arconean Club of the Rho 
Beta Chapter. Zeta Phi Sorority, 
was voted financial secretary of 

Jeannette M. Baker 

the Pr'ihmm and ^kcte I 
treasurer of t';c Camilla Hubert 
Hall House Council. 

It was nut surprising to me 
to hear v, fellow classmate of 
Jeannette's remark that, "When 
that girl speaks in dormitory 
council meetings, everybody lis- 
tens". Jeannette has a dynamic 
personality and she is one of the 
persons you can put on your list 
of names of people who are 
■going places". 

Jeannette's hobbies are cook- 
ing, sewing, and meeting all 
kinds of people. While interview- 
ing Jennette she said, "I like 
to participate in all sports and 
campus activities in which I can 
contribute something. I particu- 
larly like public speaking and 
church activities". After she 
made this statement no doubt 
was left i nmy mind as to the 
fine person she is. 

Jennette plans to major in 
home economics, specializing in 
foods and nutrition, which will 
prepare her for being a die- 
titian . 

This summer Jeannette will 
work at the Parkway Child Care 
Center in New York City, Wher- 
ever you may go Jeannette, re- 
member that THE SPOTLIGHT

According to a release from president W. K. Payne's office, the 

construction of a half-million dollar, fire proof library building 

will soon be underway. This new library building is a part of 

the building program of the college. 

The architects who designed student's use. Next to this hall- 

and erected the men's dormitory 
have also designed the library 
whose matt-type face brick will 
be in the same colors as the 
men's dormitory. Aluminum unit 
window walls, consisting of 
aluminum panels, ventilated 
sash and fixed sash will feature 
the exterior facade. Cast stone 
window sills will be used as 
masonry windows. 

A projecting cantilevered con- 
crete slab will surmount the main 
entrance which will lead into the 
lobby. The lobby extends through 
two stories of the building and 
will house book stacks, exhibit 
areas, and will have a balcony 
along the left side of the room. 
To the right of the main room 
is a fire proof stair tower con- 
necting the floors of the build- 
ing. Also a smoke-proofed tower 
to the rear of the stack to in- 
sure safe exit facilities for the 
occupants in any emergency. 

The librarian office, access to 
which is obtained through a 
hallway will be on the right side 
of the lobby and adjacent to the 
main stairway. Public telephones

During the many years spent 
in America, after associating the 
winter season with snow on the 
ground from pictures on Christ- 
mas cards, Mr. Jason said he 
has not yet become accustomed 
to the long winters. In his com- 
ment on the weather conditions 
he seemed a little distressed be- 
cause in December there is snow 
on the ground and it is cold. In 
January there is a little snow; 
and, in February and March 
there is no snow, but it is still 
cold, he said. 

Because the campus affords so 
many far away memories, Mr. 
Jason said. "It makes me feel 
as though Tm at home."

to meet (he deiniinds of nature iind l,ln> modern problems of the 
wurUI will llvi' and ;airvlvr' wlilie the iinpi'eparecl will falter under 

Our colleges wore established for the purpose of preparing 
younp; men and women for the gr(!at and Rravc task of competing 
in society, The prei)ured Individual can enter the varied fields of 
.society wllh thi' backcniuiul of ii college education and experience. 
Our culle|'.es .seek to develop the Individual's personality, knowledge 
of llie aceumulatlvi' facts of life, both si)lrltual and material, and 
most of all preparedness for life In the raw. These are the things 
students expect out of colle|'.e. "To face the world as experienced 
adults and not as children Is our aim," Is a phrase often heard on 
the campus, 

If these are tlie things students expect out of college then this 
is what they should get. But these iireretiulsltes that are needed 
can only be given when adults are treated as adults and not as 
clUldren. This Is one of the most Important aspects of the gro%vth 
and development of the Individual, for It lead.s the college student 
I'.radually into the adult world. 

Some colleges do not feel that college students should be treated 
as adidts. Why? 1 do not know. But two years ago an article ap- 
peared In a leading maga'/lne telling how a college Dean of Women, 
In a mUNweslern college, fought for the right to treat tlie senior 
women of (he college as aduKs should be treated. She explained to 
the dorniKory council that If within a year these women are going 
lo graduate and go out Into life alone, they should be given the 
chance to understand and find out what adulthood Is like. They 
cannot find out If they are treated like children. As a result the 
senior women were given the freedom to stay out as late as they 
desire, and many restrictions were lifted to give them the freedom 
they needed. If this was good or bad, I cannot say but I know for 
myself as an Individual in college I want to be treated as an adult 
and not as a child. 

The average student feels this way and wants to be prepared 
for this responsibility not in an Idealistic sense but in a realistic 
sense. The Increasing complexity of society and cultural advances 
demands realism of men and women. Until these needs are met 
and fulfilled, no coUcge graduate can honestly say "I am ready." 

A Stiidenfs Dream 

When plans for the half-miUlon dollar library were released 
by Dr. William K. Payne, president, the dream of the entire student 
body seemed nearer in becoming a reality. 

Among the st\idents seeking varied avenues to higher education, 
the new library will atford all the niodern facilities necessary, in 
satisfying their demand for knowledge. 

Not only will the building provide an added beauty to the 
campus, but new experiences, opportunities, and comfort await 
within its walls. 

A new spirt will reign among students who exalt in the beauty 
and progress of their campus— a spirit vital to the moral of the 

This half-million dollar library is a student's dream. When 
that dream becomes a reality, a new Savannah State will be born. 
Yes! This vision long anticipated, and anxiously awaited, is 
truly a "student's dream."

I was asked to write a short 
composition about what happen- 
ed to me and about my first 
Impressions of the United States. 
It Is very difficult to really an- 
swer such a question because my 
experiences and feelings are so 
many and widespread that I 
could not describe them within 
the frame of a short story. 

People are different. All have 
different ideas, and perhaps this 
difference of opinion promotes 
world development, and pushes 
our life forward. But there are 
special circumstances in which 
people experience outstanding 
events and have the same topic 
on their mind. 

Not long ago I was in sucli a 
situation on the border between 
Austria and ?Iungary. I started 
alone from Budapest and after 
four days of marching, I arrived 
at the frontier. It was at night; 
I could only guess the direction 
of the border. My left foot, on 
wiilch I wear a machine, was 
bloody by the end of the long 
march. I thought, I felt I could 
not go on. Finally, I perceived 
(he border sign meaning life to 
me. After a few more steps, I 
was standing on Austrian soil. 
The Austrian border patrols car- 
ried me in their hands to the 
nearest community. Here I met 
more exhausted, tired, and torn 
people . . . both men and women. 
They were lying on straw pre- 
pared for tliem in a hurry. We 
waited for the morning to see 
what was going to happen to us. 
And perhaps t li e same 
thoughts were on everybody's 
mind and perhaps everybody 
would give a similar answer to 
an occasional un-asked question 
If someone liad asked me what 
I felt and I knew in advance 
tliat a month later I'd learn the 
Englisli language in one of the 
most beautiful colleges as a re- 
sult of a scholarship, in relative- 
ly the greatest luxury, I would 
surely have cried from liappi- 
ness. And now as I tliink back. 
I am convinced tliat we would 
have been all very happy to see 
in advance what has happened 
to us since, ti\ere at the Aus- 
trian border in a situation with- 
out perspective, in uncertainty 
and fearing the future. 

And why do I describe ail this? 
Just to remind many, many Hun- 
garian youngsters and perhaps 
adults too, of soniething that 
happened to us not so long ago. 
Sometimes it is useful to remem- 
ber past events and learn what 
we owe to ourselves in the first 
place and to many others like 

Nobody can build his or lier 
future life on what he or she 
did or did not do in Hungary, 
We have sliown and still can 
sliow how much we are worth 
and to show who we are. Let us 
not save our efforts to do what 
we have to do. because we shall 
enjoy the fruits of our efforts. 

President's Message 

As one senses the situation in our country today, one is faced 
with many statements indicating the swift movement of affairs. 
Everywhere people are talking about the rapidity of change. As 
the dLscussion continues, one often wonders what things are perma- 
nent and enduring. Perhaps it is meant that the changes are not 
all complete and fundamental in nature. The variety and number 
of changes often give the illusion that everything is changing. 

Among the enduring or permanent things needed in our society 
is the ability to think. In all societies of the past, the ability to 
think clearly has been the chief means by which progress has been 
made- Many of the societies and cultures non-existent today be- 
came so because the peoples were unable to think properly. In mass 
media communication an unusual premium has been placed on 
thinking ability. Wherever there are many choices to be made, 
thinking becomes the principal means of making the right choice. 
As one makes use of the radio, television, aeroplane, camera and 
other devices such as the newspaper, magazine, recordings, and 
books, he can find many answers to every question generated in 
his mind. 

To arrive at an adequate solution to a problem it is necessary 
to weigh evidence as a part of a system of values. The values 
which one develops as he matures are related to his society and 
education, both formal and informal. Students who enter college 
and feel that a four-year program is too long to wait before becom- 
ing active in adult life have a different set of values from those 
who see the four years of college as a basis for a profession which 
they would hke to pursue. It is often necessary to decide whether 
one will have certain material comforts and luxuries now or at a 
period five or ten years later. To think through a problem one 
may need in addition to studies, books, newspapers, and other ma- 
terials, personal conference with some one prepared to assist in the 
thinking— a counselor, teacher, psychologist, or psychiatrist. The 
decision, however, is one only the individual himself can make. 
Usually when its made it wil be satisfactory if it is thought through 
carefully in terms of the student's background, resources, ideals, 
and aspirations. 

The abihty to think like any other characteristic or trait can 
be developed in terms of each individual. The schools, elementary. 
high school and college, can play an important part in this develop- 
ment. The opportunities to think presented students at all levels 
will provide training in this area. Methods of teaching and learn- 
ing utilized by the school and the teacher will become important 
factors in this development process. Teachers at all levels in the 
schools are beginning to provide better training in this area. The 
emphasis here is not being put on the teacher alone. Pupils and 
students are assuming larger and larger rolls in their own education 
by recognizing the fact that one educates him.self. This tendency 
toward the development of abilities to think, promises to be the 
major factor in the continuation of progress individually and col- 
lectively in our society.

"Accidents sometimes occur in the home due to brake failure.' 


Auausi. 19r>: 



By Thomas Jones 

The subject most frequently 
discussed on the campus is — 
which team will win the pen- 
nant in the National and Ameri- 
can Leagues. Presently the races 
in both are very heatedly con- 

In the American League the 
contest is between the New York 
Yankees and the Chicago White 
Sox. with the Cleveland Indians 
and the Boston Red Sox follow- 
ing closely in third and fourth 
places, respectively. 

The Yankees, who were odds- 
on favorites to run away with 
the American League pennant, 
find the White Sox giving stiff 
competition The Yankees do 
not appear to have the punch 
and steam as in former years. 

The question of what happened 
to the Yankees can be answered 
by stating that their mainstay, 
"Yogi" Berra. is having the worst 
season of his career. He is bat- 
ting .225 and is not hitting 
homers and in the clutch as 
expected of him. The Yankee's 
ace pitcher, "Whitey" Ford, lias 
been out most of the season with 
numerous injuries. Their reserves 
on the bench are not coming 
through in the clutch when 

On the whole the American 
League appears to be somewhat 
stronger than it was last year. 
In years gone by the Yankees 
would win an aggregate of 60 
or 70 games from the second 
division clubs, do no worse than 
an even split with the first 
division clubs and breeze in with 
the pennant. But this year the 
Yankees are taking their lumps 
from the second division clubs 
and as a result are not running 
away with the pennant. 

From this quarter the Yan- 
kees will be in the World Series 
come October, but if they should 
stumble along the way. if Berra 
and Ford do not pick up the 
slack and if the White Sox get 
a little more hitting — just watch 
out for those White Sox. 

Over in the National League 
it is the same old story: a dog 
eat dog affair and it would be 
foolhardy for anyone to attempt 
to predict the outcome. 

At the season's beginning it 
was a pick your choice be- 
tween the Brooklyn Dodgers. 
Milwaukee Braves and Cincinnati 
Redlegs. But now the Philadel- 
phia Phillies, New York Giants 
and the St. Louis Cardinals are 
making the fight for the Na- 
tional League pennant a six- 
team race. The teams in the Na- 
tional League are so evenly bal- 
anced that no one team can 
build up a substantial lead. As 
evidence of this the sixth place 
New York Giants are only seven 
games out of first place. Any 
team that can win five or six 
straight games is the team to 
beat out. 

Front this quarter the predic- 
tion is that the New York Yan- 
kees will be fighting the Dodgers 
in the World Series come Oc- 

Post Mortem ... In the Na- 
tional League Stan Musial will 
win the batting, runs-batted-in 
and runs scored titles. Duke Sny- 
der will win the home-run title 
and the winningest pitcher will 
be Bob Buhl of the Braves. 

In the American League, Ted 
Williams will win the batting 
title ; Mickey Mantle the runs 
scored, run-batted-in and home 
run titles. 

Now what's your guess Ss to 
how the Major Leagues will wind 
up at the season's end?

Excise Tax Exeniptioii 

Clears Another Hurdle , 

Approaches House Vote 

The House Rules Committee 
has cleared for House floor ac- 
tion H. R. 7125, reported by the 
Ways and Means Committee, 
several weeks ago. (See this Bul- 
letin Vol VI, No. 17, May 15. 
19571. Among other things, the 
bill provides exemption from ex- 
cise taxes for non-profit educa- 
tional institutions. When the bill 
comes up for House vote about 
the middle of this month, it will 
be under a procedure barring 
floor amendment. 

The late date for House action 
on the excise bill could delay 
Senate consideration until next 
year. But Senator Byrd, Chair- 
man of the Senate Finance Com- 
mittee, has been quoted as say- 
ing he thought his Committee 
could complete action on the bill 
quickly this session if it did not 
prove too controversial. 



By Ernestine Hill 
While walking across the cam- 
pus sometime ago, I was won- 
dering who would be my Spot- 
light subject for this month. 
Without realizing it. I was cross- 
ing the street as a truck came 
very near me. My probIen\ was 
solved, for driving the truck was 
Levern Carter, It surprised me 
that I had not thought of him 

Levern. from Baxley, Georgia, 
graduated from Appling County 
High School In 1955. Ho entered 
Savannah State College Septem- 
ber 17, 1955 studying Radio and 
Television the first two quar- 
ters and in the Spring quarter 
starting his academic work In 
the field of Industrial Education. 

There Is hardly a student at- 
tending Savannah State who 
does not know Levern. Working 
for the Building and Grounds 
Maintenance group, he Is often 
seen driving one of the school 
trucks around the campus, He 
is always busy, but never too 
occupied to give you a bright 
smile. He is the type of person 
whom when you meet makes the 
day more cheerful. He Is an intel- 
ligent, polite, and handsome 
young man who has a way of 
making every girl he is around 
feel that she Is something 

Levern's hobbles are working 
on all kinds of electrical ap- 
pliances, and enjoying all kinds 
of music. His plans after grad- 
uation are to teach for a few 
years and then work in some 
large corporation, specializing in 

This writer predicts a great 
future ahead of you, Lavern, and 
always remember that "The 
Spotlight Is On You."

Selerls riienie 

By Betty Stephens 

The Secondary Workshop, 
which consists of fourteen in- 
service teachers from many lo- 
calities throughout Georgia, has 
its activities and organization 
based on problems, needs and In- 
terests of the in-service teach- 
ers, report student chairmen Miss 
Betty J. Shaw and Mr. William 
B. Jackson. The Co-directors of 
the workshop are Dr. Calvin 
Kiah and Mr, Walter Mercer. 

"Purposeful Experiences for 
Purposeful Learning in the Sec- 
ondary Schools." was selected as 
the theme for the workshop. 
This theme was chosen with par- 
ticular emphasis on improving 
secondary instruction in the light 
of what modern research and ex- 
perimentation believe are good 
educational principles. 

In order to reach some of the 
goals of the workshop, indivi:!- 
ual members selected special 
projects such as: the explora- 
tion of controversial issues and 
book reviews. Records and films 
have also been used as aids. 

A series of education tours 
liave been planned to broaden 
the knowledge of environmental 
resources that can be used to 
improve instruction. These in- 
clude visits to: Telfair Art Acad- 
emy, Greenbriar Children's Cen- 
ter, Union Bus Corporation, Oat- 
land Island, Fort Pulaski. Savan- 
nah Morning News Plant and a 
tour of the Harbor. 

The activities of the Workshop 
have been enriched greatly by 
resource persons who are special- 
ists in different areas. Mr. J. A 
Spriggs. Director of the Work- 
shop in Metliods and Materials 
of Teaching the Retarded Child, 
Mrs, I. J. Gadsden and Dr. V. 
McNamara. Director of the Di- 
vision of School Health in Geor- 
gia implemented the program 
by acquainting the workshoppers 
with many ideas and activities 
for promoting good health prac- 
tices in the high school. 

The members of the workshop 
are looking forward to visits of 
ether consultants: Mr. D. Leon 
McCormac, Administration and 
Curriculum, Mr. W, A, Metz, Psy- 
chologist, Mr. Robert Holt, Read-

share In de-eniphiislzlnn the ne-

There ure. httwever. other I'ca- 
sons why more students do not 
support, as they do other activi- 
ties, the relli^lous programs of 
their Institutions uf higher 

There Is a strong possibility 
that this drift Is due to the fact 
that the Individuals who are em- 
ployed to Instill and tench stu ■ 
dents very seldoui or never Ire- 
quent the religious programs of 
the Institutions in which they 
are employed. This observed fail- 
ure can be a more crippling dis- 
ease than many of the other ex- 
planations that we may consider 
as primary. 

As much a.s nuiny Individuals 
would like to disagree, they, how- 
ever, must concede that .students

Tomorrow's world will, I must 
admit, be a sad predicament If 
many of our present leaders 

wrlkl a great amount of Influ- 
ence uri our aspiring leaders. 

Many of our leuder.s are never 
seen at our educational and re- 
ligious functions. The student 
gets the hnpres.slon that attend- 
ing these programs Is not essen- 
tial since the Individuals who 
are lending do not consider them 
worth their precious moments. 

Coming to college Is supposed 
to strengthen Individuals, tor 
the most part, many become 
weaker, especially In their re- 
ligious heritage, Even though 
teucher.s constantly contend that 
their primary aim Is to attempt 
to mold nmtured, competent, 
well-rounded dtl'/ens, they fall 
to reall'/.e that an Individual 
could not be considered well- 
rounded If he is not taught or 
encouraged to revere a supreme 
belnR. In most cases the church 
or sonre other meeting place Is 
considered the proper place to 
revere this being. 

Being treated as an Infant 
does not foster maturity. If st\i- 
dents ar{' not to be treated as 
nu\tured individuals, then the 
adults should take advantage of 
this |)rolonged Infancy to train 
the Infants to walk the right 
paths in his Infancy so that 
when he beconu's mature and 
must be counted with the strong, 
he will not be stranded at the 
crossroads where survival is an 

Too frequently we remind our 
connudes that action speaks 
louder than words, It has also 
been a custom for us to encour- 
age indlvidiuils to practice their 
preachings. The presence of om 
leaders at religious f mictions 
and their dally conduct does 
much to Influence nuuiy, The 
drift from religion in college

lectures. People will listen to al-

well and has .something to say 
Individuals do not spend all of 
their time listening. A great por-

By J Campbell, Jr- 

For good or evil, "grouplsm" 
haH become firmly entrenched In 
our American society, and the 
old rugged individualism, like 
the frontier, has all but 
pearcd. The tendency of Individ- 
uals to Join groups has been 
more jHonounced In America 
than In any other country. We 
are more concerned with the 
problems of groups, group par- 
ticipation, and group belonglng- 
ness. than we are with the In- 
dividual and his problems. 

The vast number of clubs, 
fraternities, .sororities, honorary 
.societies, and other types of or- 
ganizations found on our college 
campus evidence of the 
prevalence of "grouplsm" in our 
society. The membership roster 
of t h e s e organizations hold 
many names, but few of them 
can boast of full participation 
from their members, in the form 
of attendance, cooperation, and 
the carrying out of specific a.s- 

Somehow "getting in" the 
group .seems to be the most Im- 
portant thing. The fact that 
every group or organization 
exists for some expressed purpose 
or function escapes too many of 
us. Once "in" we all too soon for- 
get the purpose of the organiza- 
tion; forget to pay our dues, to 
attend meetings; In point of fact, 
we forget everything except that 
.somehow we are members. 

The work of the organization 
is performed by a few Indus- 
trious, conscientious members. 
If they succeed In a project the 
majority bask In the limelight; 
if the project is a failure, the 
majority disclaim any attach- 
ment to it, sometimes even to 
I lie organization. 

Membership In most organiza- 
tions Is a voluntary deed. No in- 
dividual Is forced to join the 
types of clubs and organizations 
which are found on college cam- 
puses. Therefore, If an individu- 
al Is not willing to work toward 
the goals of the organization, he 
.should refrain from joining. 
Every organization has rules by 
whlcji to expel members for 
non-cooperation, but few have 
the courage to actually do so. If 
this privilege were exercised by, they apply to everyone 
concerned. Yet, contrary to this 
conception, we have seen many 
Instances where certain indi- 
viduals are given "breaks" or 
permitted to "slide" while others 

Individuals who grant special

The adhering to standards and

an Impo.ssibillty for many re-

would be better if we eliminated

President's Message 

American communities are in the midst of the year-long 
celebration of the centennial of the National Education Association. 
During the celebration many opportunities will appear to study and 
evaluate the activities and achievements of the organization during 
its first hundred years. The goals which were selected during the 
early years of the organization have continued to be re-established 
in terms of the changes that have been taking place in American 

Since the beginning of our first schools in this country. Ameri- 
cans have been concerned about reducing the illiteracy rate. Re- 
markable progress has been made in the decrease of illiteracy, if 
the ability to read and to write one's name is considered a minimum 
standard. In most American communities today there are few people 
who have not achieved this minimum goal. The concept of Hteracy. 
however, has developed to a point where much more is required 
of the literate person. The recognition of the need for the partici- 
pation of each individual for the greater good of the community 
places a premium on intelligent action and well-developed person- 
ality. It is reasonable to predict that the concept of literacy will 
grow as long as man continues to make progress. 

In our society today Americans are faced with the problems 
of developing abilities required in thinking, evaluating, appreciating 
and understanding. Although millions are reading, writing, and 
ciphering, there Is evidence that the number who can make decisions 
on the ba.sis of their reading, listening, and viewing is not large. 
American education will be concerned with the development on a 
large scale of abilities to discriminate, evaluate, and to make 
decisions. The multiple media of communication which would in- 
clude printed and written material, pictures, radio, television, and 
telephone present a complex world in which individuals need special 
abilities to live adequately. The goals of education today and in the 
future will be centered about improvement of the individual's abil- 
ities to live in a complex society. The ability to live and to make 
progress In such a .society will continue to be conditioned by the 
self-direction of the individual members. Students in high schools 
and colleges will be expected to build into their personalities the 
elements necessary for charting paths that lead to established 
and desirable goals. As individuals advance on the educational lad- 
der, they will be expected to assume progressively more responsibility 
for the quality and quantity of their education. 

the organization more frequent- 
ly, a tremendous amount of 
"dead weight" could be thrust 

Being a member of an organ- 
ization Is not enough. One must 
become a full-pledged member- 
must cooperate— must attend 
meetings, pay dues, and partici- 
pate in discussions and debates. 
And most important, one must 
learn to accept the failures of 
the organizations as well as the 

For those who wish to belong 
to an organization but are un- 
willing to become full-pledged 
members. I suggest that you 
band together in the formation 
of a "Do Nothing" Club. As the 
name implies, the members 
would have nothing to do — no 
meetings to attend, no dues to 
pay. no goals to achieve, no 
standards to uphold. Incidental-

my hat's in the ring.

What's An Editor's Job? 

As the college year neared the 
midway point, many editors 
found themselves seriously 
thinking and writing about then- 
proper functions on a campus. 
Should a paper take sides or 
shouldn't it? Is it an honest 
paper if it accepts censorship 
from anyone'? Here are a few 

University of Kansas' "Daily 
Kansan" reprinted an editorial 
from the "Wichita Beacon" on 
the college paper and its role. 

Burton W, Marvin, dean of the 
William Allen White School of 
journalism and public informa- 
tion, has declared that it is ab- 
solutely essential that the "Daily 
Kansan" remain neutral In all 
political sltuatlons- 

We wonder what the great 
Emporia editor, who was seldom 
neutral about anything, would 
think of such a dictum. 

It is easy to understand Dean 
Marvin's point of view. He is in 
a ticklish spot because the uni- 
versity is a tax-supported insti- 
tution. If a student journalist 
whipped out some sophomoric 
bit of political writing that of- 
fended powerful persons, the 
dean would take the rap. 

And yet surely the philosophy 
of neutrality is a subject that 
should not be taught in any in- 
stitution of high learning. This 
is not a neutral world, 

A neutral campus newspaper 
is a poor laboratory for training 
reporters and editors. American 
newspapers have a noble tradi- 
tion of championing the cause of 
good government and social re- 
form and freedom . . . The his-

Visits (iainpiis 

When a few of the students 
were going around telling every- 
body that Joyce Bryant was here, 
everyone thought it was an April 
Fool's joke. However it was not, 
and many of the students did 
not see her because they thought 
it was a joke. 

Miss Bryant after appearing in 
Jacksonville, Florida stopped on 
our campus April 1. 1957. Those 
who heard her were thrilled. 
Miss Bryant sang two selections, 
"My Soul's Been Anchored In 
De'Lord" and "Because." 

Traveling with Miss Bryant 
were two oher students from 
Oakwood College. 

Ella Marie Taylor, who sings 
soprano and is a Junior major- 
ing in Secretarial Science and 
Saundra Chandler a Freshman 
who plays the piano, and is an 
Elementary maojr were the Oak- 
wood students who accompanied 
Miss Bryant, who is a sophomore 
at Oakwood College majoring in 
Elementary Education. 

These young ladies were house 
guests of Harriet Miller while 
they were in Savannah. 

Oliver Swaby extended the in- 
vitation to Miss Bryant, to visit

The Press And You 

Did you know that your library 
subscribes to more than 200 peri- 
odicals and 20 newspapers and 
that every day a goodly number 
of them — still unread — are taken 
down and replaced by new issues 
that will in their turn be taken 
down unopened and unread? 
Statistics assure us that so far 
TV's impact on magazines lias 
been surprisingly small. They 
say that in less than 10 years, 
TV has become practically uni- 
versal, but the magazines have 
gained too. They assure us, too, 
that newspapers are still con- 
sidered by the public at then- 
main source of information since 
radio and TV give little more 
than bulletins and capsule com- 
ments on a few issues. 

These findings should give 
comfort to all who are trying to 
dispel the wide-spread notion 
that Johnny can't read. They 
would too, if factual observa- 
tion supported the figures. Take 
a number from five to ten and 
you will have the number of 
magazines and newspapers that 
actually pay their way in most 
college libraries. In our library 
the calls are for: Pittsburgh 
Courier, Ebony, Life, Look, Time. 
Newsweek, the local and home- 
town papers. That's all. Except, 
of course, the ones assigned for 
class reading and the fashion 

There is, of course, nothing 
wrong with reading — or looking 
at I since a number of titles are 
of the picture-story type) the 
newspapers or magazines listed 
above. This is no campaign for 
curtailing the reading of these 
popular periodicals; but one for 
extended coverage of the news 
and the thinking of the day. 
Why not try adding one maga- 
zine a month to your established 
reading list? Glance sometime at 
the editorials in the newspapers 
now read. Add from time to time, 
some material from the New 
York Times and the perennial 
Pulitizer prize winning St, Louis 
Post Dispatch.

F€tcts About The ISegro 

The Negro arrived in the New 
World free from Tuberculosis, 
and syphilis, or other venereal 
disease. Livingstone, tlie famous 
African missionary and medical 
doctor, says. Syphilis "dies out 
in the African interior. It seems 
incapable of permanence in any 
form in persons of pure African 
blood." Syphilis originated in 
Europe in 1494, wlien there was 
a great epidemic of it. As this 
was two years after the discovery 
of the New World, it was erron- 
eously believed lo have been 
brought back by tiie sailors of 

The Negro was the first artist. 
The oldest drawings and carvings 
yet discovered were executed by 
the Negro people over 15,000 
years ago in Southern France, 
Northern Spain, Palestine, South 
Ffrlca, and India. The drawings 
are on rocks, the carvings on 
bone basalt and ivory,

Whenever you see Albert 
Wheeler walking across the cam- 
pus, you will find that he hardly 
ever has time to stop and chat. 
He could very well be described 
at the executive type, because 
he is always busy and seems to 
know exactly what he is doing. 

Albert, a freshman from Dub- 
lin, Georgia, is a graduate of 
Oconee High School, 

Albert's hobbles are reading 
and collecting and listening to 
modern jazz records. 

The campus activities in which 
he participates include the Choir 
and the Newspaper staff. Most 
of us heard him sing beautifully 
in chapel not too long ago. 

Albert, a very serious minded 
young man. has definite plans 
for the future. He intends to 
major in chemistry, and after 
finishing college, he plans to 
join the Air Force and become an 
officer. During the summer he 
will be working at the Dublin 
Veteran Hospital, 

Whatever life has in store for 
you Albert, always remember

The President's Message 

Rt'Uffion U ilit Srirnrr 

Ulilkii(-'n itR' Uuii;lit ut un 
L'lii-ly a^i' to bellfvo In Homoone 
or HOinctlilni;. Durlni^ tholr curly 
lives their views on religion ure 
molded to llvlni; ti Chrlstltin life 
(Ls written In the Bible. They 
ftie tiuiulit to believe In the Bible 
of the ChrlHtlun fiilLh und to 
tiecei)t no other theories exeept 
those lulvoeiitod In the Bible ;us 
to the creutlun of the eurth. 

The cluipter to which I refer 
states that God ereiitcd heaven 
and earth; the fish of the sea; 
the fowl of the air, and the beast 
of the land and then He created 
man. This Is belief. This Is faith 
and It Is to be taken seriously. 
It Is Lo be taken as part of life 

But In many eolle[;e courses 
there arc two theories that seem 
to falsify the teaehhifis of the 
Bible. The "Theory of Dynamic 
Eneoimter" states that the (M\rth 
and all Its phenomena were 
created through a series of t^rad- 
unl changes which take lonRer 

iiy Harry V, ISevcds 

than .seven days according to 
our conception of time today, 
Also there Is a theory that states 
man dest-ended from a primate 
—that .som{'Wh(!r(.' man broke 
away from the primate species 
and evolved to what we know 
a.s modern man today 

Many students find It difficult 
to face this problem objectively 
and many times It shakes them 
In their faith. They face this 
Ijroblem of what a textbook re- 
lates and what they have been 
taught to believe all their lives. 
Many students have left their 
classes contemplating over what 
has passed In class. And they 
are In doubt as to what to be- 

But what the student must 
learn to understand Is that the- 
ories arc not proven facts. They 
must be accepted as supposition, 
as part of a learning process. 
When looked at In this fashion, 
one can objectively understand 
the teaching of the .sciences and 
renuiln a Christian. 

By Robert Tlndal 
Space Flltrhl 
As the periscope makes Its wide swing around our globe it 
comes to focus on the Iron Curtain and what may be the greatest 
scientific achievement of man In the twentieth century. The world 
was botli shocked and bewildered to liear that the Russians had 
successfully launched the first man-made satellite. This astound- 
ing accomplishment by the Conununists had a resounding effect 
on the countries that make up the free world. The full effect, 
however, cannot be known until It Is clearly determined how far 
advanced the Russians arc In the field of outer-space travel. The 
United States hos reported since the launching of the Russian 
man-nu^de moon that It will start the launching of its earth 
satellite In December of this year. 

With the successful launching of Sputnik I, as It has been 
named by the Russians, tlierc Is no doubt In the minds of the 
great powers that her claim of over a nionth ago of successfully 
firing an Intercontinental Ballistics Missile Is true. What effect 
this will have on the rest of the world no one will chance a guess. 
Here In the United States it has caused numerovis discussions and 
investigations to try to determine where we fell behind Russia 
in this project and liow she was able to win this race for outer- 
space invasion, 

Tlie Middle East 
Continuing Its swing the periscope settles now on the Middle 
East where it is being said the west is suffering another set back. 
The Incident that many claim was the beginning of the west falling 
from favor among the middle eastern nations was the refusal 
of the United States and England to lend Egypt the money to 
build the Aswan Dam. The truth of this statement can only be 
proved or disapproved by the men who head the governments in 
this troubled area. 

Here At Home 
As the periscope comes closer to home it settles on Miami. 
Florida, where the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are 
holding the convention to elect a new President. All the eyes of 
the country were focused on this convention to see whether or 
not the delegates from tiie locals were going to support the pro- 
posed candidate James Hof fa in the face of the late Congressional 
investigations which have indicted Mr. Hoffa for improper hand- 
ling of union affairs. Needless to report Mr. Hoffa won an almost 
unanimous vote. What are the indications of such action. Is the 
Teamsters Union declaring war? 

The periscope now rests on Little Rock, Ark., and Central High 
School, where the President of these United States sent federal 
troops to carry out the law of the land as interpreted by the Supreme 
Court. How long will they remain? The President says as long as 
necessary. A fact that may be interesting. It is costing the United 
States $100,000 dollars per day to maintain these troops in Little 
Rock This could become very expensive.

In each of the four*:; of 
the undergraduate college ap- 
pear U) be in a hurry. One often 
wonders why students enrolled 
In college feel the fleeting of 
time. In .some instances this 
feeling Is generated by flnrn- 
clal pressure and the need to 
become .self-supporting. Some- 
times, the haste Is generated be- the Individual has a well- 
organized plan developed for the 
achievement of goals within and 
beyond the college If the 
feeling of haste were generated 
by the student's goals b.^yond 
college, learning might take on 
a different character When one 
knows that he is acquiring tech- 
niques, skills, knowledge, under- 
standings, and appreciations for 
specific achievement, he will 
take time to acquire these Items 
with his highest degree of per- 
fection. Learning In college 
would then come to mean more 
than the completion of courses 
of -study and the pa.ssing of ex- 
aminations. Students would at- 
tempt to evaluate the depth and 
breadth of their own learning. 
If one knows the things to be 
u.scd In arriving at his goal, he 
recruits the best means and tools 

required to perform the task. 

It is unfortunate that many 
college students decrease the 
value of their college education 
by failing to establish objectives 
and goals that lead beyond the 
bachelor's degree. One often 
hears a student say that he 
would like to have changed his 
major before he graduated. A 
further explanation is given that 
a change in major would mean 
a longer period In college. Since 
the student desires to graduate 
on time, he will continue to pur- 
sue a program which he does 
not like and does not Intend to 
follow. In all probability, the 
selection of the program of 
major concentration was made 
on the basis of expediency Too 
many students receive the cov- 
eted diploma and have no idea 
concerning the direction they 
expect to take. They find them- 
selves forced to make hasty de- 
cisions. Such procedures tend to 
reduce to a bare minimum in- 
tellectual and other types of 
growth generally expected of the 
bachelor's program. 

Changes in modern life and 
the early participation of youth 
in all aspects of our culture re- 
quire that choices for careers 

be made early. In a society of 
literate and educated people 
where vocations are numerous 
and on a rapid Increase, indi- 
viduals are encouraged to make 
plans for careers at an early 
age. Many vocations require 
choices to be made early in the 
secondary school. Some pro- 
grams in college require that 
freshmen come with prerequis- 
ites in specific areas. At what- 
ever level one may decide to 
make a decision for a career, 
there is justifications for taking 
the time required. To be in a 
hurry does not mean one would 
enter a field for which he had 
no Interest or aptitude. It does 
mean that one would not waste 
time, energy, and effort by rac- 
ing to have a certain date placed 
on the college diploma. In many 
vocations the general education 
program of the freshman and 
sophomore years provides pre- 
requisites and background suf- 
ficient for concentration pro- 
grams or major programs. The 
thoughtful and serious students 
are never in such a hurry that 
they fail to attain their achieve- 
ments according to their high- 
est respective potentialities.

Greeny cars 

By Yvonne Hooks 
Now as I was young and hap- 
py with playmates in the green- 
years of childhood, time shot 
forth— in ei.chusiastlc spurts of 
restless sleeps, in impatient 
mouthfuls of food, in the weary 
walk of a harrassed mother, in 
full-bodied leaps to playmates 
and playtime 

The day. rolling from the dark 
abyss of night as overheated 
broth surges forth from its hot 
receptacle, lightened and 
dawned on several children 
scantily clothed against the 
summer heat. I, among them, 
housewife in a restless brood of 
many^husband, mother, sister, 
sister-in-law, distant cousin, dog, 
cat. rabbit, and four grass roots 
— busied myself by making pa- 
latable camphor leaves and 
sycamore shavings and wet, 
smooth mud. Served from flat 
tin pans of old metal, the "vi- 
tals" made a gruesome dish. Af- 
ter happy hours of doing liair — 
tlie grass roots like silent suf- 
ferers moved spinelessly in the 
hands — I and my playmates, 
browned by sun and weary from 
busyness and doing fell sound- 
lessly asleep. 

The Party 

By Frances J Carter 

It was my sixtli year in a gar- 
den of summer roses. The dor- 
ling buds of May sang to their 
stems as tlie golden touches of 
the speechless candles danced 
above the honey-breathed cake 

Noon, like an untroubled 
brook, brouglit many youtliful 
smiles. The summer sun winked 
her eye and smiled at the laugh- 
ter-filled roses dashing about 
the boundless garden. The un- 
wasted nioments ran swiftly 
away and I. the fairest of all 
roses, found myself dreaming of 
unfading flashes of happiness.

The Trip 

That JSever Was 

By Robert Tlndal 
How vivid is the memory of 
the day of my first trip on a 
choo-choo. I arose with the sun 
to prepare to leave, happy as a 
lark in early spring. I gulped 
my breakfast and guzzled my 

I remember my mother's say- 
ing, "You look like a young calf 
around the mouth." As she 
wiped my face and hands, I 
clamored to be dressed so that 
I would be ready to leave when 
time came, which was not until 
tile dark shadows fell across the 
porch. To me all the world was 
bright and shiny. 

Swiftly and from out of no- 
where it suddenly began to grow 
dark and claps of thunder rum- 
bled and streaks of light flashed 
into the room and the sound of 
small stones hitting the roof 
resounded in my ears. The drops 
began slowly at their birth but 
grew to manhood with the hour. 

My mother reminded me that 
if the rain continued we would 
have to postpone the trip. On 
hearing this, I uttered a silent 
prayer that the rain would soon 
cease. But the rain continued to 
fall in torrents, and soon the 
street was not visible. And thus 
the dream of a trip died with 
the death of the day. 

Jiuigle Reigti 

By Rosa Lee Boles 
The air was fresh and filled 
with the scent of crushed green- 
ery. And just as the greenery 
was crushed, so was my pride 
because I could not soar across 
the huge stone structure that 
rose out of the ground between 
thickly set trees. 

These stone structures, in dif- 
ferent shapes and sizes, appeared 
to me as a pyramid would to an 
ant. A sturdy pole and a little 
force on my part was all that 
was needed for me to sail 
through the air from one struc- 
ture to another. 

To those who were more ex- 
perienced at this art, I was 
green, because of my lack of 
know-how: and yellow, because 
of my being afraid. My mind 
finally made up. I faced the 
problem squarely and took the 
first leap. I made it. Hours 
passed, but youth does not feel 
the touch of weariness. Fear had 
been conquered and self-assur- 
ance was at its peak. I was 
queen and ruler of my childhood

A Yearbook Letter 

Dear Katie, 

While down in your fair city 
last weekend, I went to State's 
football game with some friends. 

I received a note in the mail 
the other day from Savannah 
and I thought it was a letter 
from you until I read the ad- 
dress and found it was from the 
editor of the yearbook at Sa- 
vannah State. 

I met her during the half and 
she promised me some material 
on the publication of a college 
yearbook. Mrs. Nichols stated in 
her letter that the cost of the 
book was most important. 

To help with the cost this year 
the staff is working on some 
new plans in which everyone 
can share. It seems that every- 
one helped Savannah Siate^s 

Have you subscribed yet? 
Don't forget to reserve one for 
me. I'm sure you can spare 
Sl.OO! I am enclosing $2.50 plus 
your dollar deposit. 
Thanks for your kindness. 
Your friend.

Schools For Young Gel lliuU-rHav; 

Powell Lah in New 

By Daniel Washington 
Powell Laboratory School and 
the College Nursery School have 
made some improvements dur- 
ing the past year — Powell Lab 
in form of a new building and 
the nursery in the form of a 
well-developed program for the 
coming year. 

Powell Laboratory School, un- 
der the principalship of Mrs 
Dorothy Hamilton, formerly lo- 
cated on the west end of the 
College campus, moved into a 
new building at the beginning 
of the 1957-58 school year. The 
new building is located on the 
right hand side of Taylor Road 
entering from Victory Drive. It 
has eight classrooms and an 
average enrollment of thirty 
students per class. On the right 
wing is located the cafetorium. 
Here lunch is served and as the 
name implies, this part of the 
building is also used for enter- 
tainment. The new cafetorium 
affords an opportunity for the 
children to become well versed in 
the social aspect of the school 
program, according to Mrs. 

In its new location Powell Lab 
runs on the same level as other 
elementary schools do through- 
out the county. The classes 
range from the first to the sev- 
enth grade with approximately 
eight teachers to give instruc- 


Tlie College Nursery, under 
the direction of Miss Zclia 
Owens, has begun its fall in- 
struction in child development. 

In an interview Miss Owens 
had this to say, "Under a con- 
trolled program the nursery tries 
to develop the social, emotional, 
physical, mental, and intellec- 
tual characteristics of the 

Most of this is accomplished 
through group activities. Play 
and other group activities are 
supervised, either by the direc- 
tor or by students who are en- 
rolled in Child Development 
Classes. Upon entering the nur- 
sery physical examinations are 
given the children. 

The Nursery has been in oper- 
ation for several years at Sa- 
vannah State College as a part 
of the total program of the in- 
stitution The children attend- 
ing the nursery are children of 
faculty members and other per- 
sonnel on the college campus.

Columbus, o, — I IP, I -. Ohio 
State University has raised Its 
academic standards for students. 
The University's Board of Trus- 
tees recently enacted new aca- 
demic standards by Klvlng for- 
mal approval to a scries of five 
faeutly rule cluinncs, which had 
been rccouunended by the Fac- 
ulty Council and were presented 
to the board by Ohio State Pres- 
ident Novice G. Fawcett. 

In brief, the revised rules will 
require a higher scholastic aver- 
age for graduation and better 
performance from the first 
quarter on. Admission require- 
ments to the University were not 
changed, so that. RenortilTy 
speaking, any graduate of a 
flrstgrade high school .still may 
enroll But under the new rules, 
a freshman ranking seholastl- 
cally In t,he lowest third of hl.s 
high school will be admit- 
ted under "special warning."

Reading Clinic Meets Studenl Needs; 
Offers Opporliinilio for Self-IIelp 

Under the direction of Robert 
Holt, assistant professor in the 
Department of Languages and 
Literature, the Savannah State 
College Reading Clinic begins 
the 1957-58 year of instruction 
at the college. 

Since the need of students and 
teachers to read and interpret 
material effectively has become 
apparent to many educators as 
a vital problem that needs look- 
ing into, programs such as the 
one functioning at Savannah 
State have proven to be of great 
help to many students and 

The program is supervised by 
an instructor in the English De- 
partment who has been trained 
to do this specialized work. 
Many students attend the CUnic 
and they are derived from three 
sources: (1) students are recom- 
mended by the Office of General 
Education; (2) students are rec- 
ommended by teachers who rec- 
ognize weaknesses of students; 
13) students who desire to im- 

prove their reading ability vol- 
unteer to come. 

The Clinic offers many oppor- 
tunities for self-improvement as 
well as supervised improvement. 
The Clinic attempts to work out 
any type problem which the stu- 
dent might have. Speed, com- 
prehension, and vocabulary 
building are emphasized to im- 
prove the ability on the stu-

The Death Of "Mr. Footbair 

Savannah Slate 
Plays 6-6 Tie 

Edward Waters College of 
Jacksonville set up a touchdown 
with a 53-yard pass on a long- 
shot gamble and went on to a 
come-from-behind 6-6 tie with 
Savannah State College in the 
Tigers season opener before 
about 2.100 October 5. 

The bullet - like passing of 
quarterback Allen Sistrunk and 
fine catches by ends Bart 
Thornton and Vince Taylor were 
responsible for the third quarter 
strike into the end zone by the 

Willie Batchelor. the Quitman 
whiz and 1956 SEAC all-confer- 
ence halfback, scooted 15 yards 
on a pitchout from quarterback 
Sammy White in the second 
quarter to put the Tigers ahead 
but fumbles and interceptions 
halted their offense in the sec- 
ond half. 

Edward Waters was at its own 
45 in the fourth period and suc- 
ceeded in a gamble on a fourth 
down and nine to go play. Sis- 
trunk fired to Thronton at the 
Savannah 40 and the big end 
raced to the two before he 
was dropped. Two running plays 
failed so Sistrunk fired another 
strike to Taylor who pulled it 
in for six points. A bad snap 
prevented the conversion and 
the game stood at 6-6, where it 
remained the rest of the way. 

Halfback Ulysses Stanley went 
15 yards for a first half Savan- 
nah State touchdown but a pen- 
alty nullified the score. Batche- 
lor on another occasion ran 40 
yards to the Jacksonville 15 but 
the ball went over on a fumble 
during a succeeding play. 

The Savannah scoring drive 
was helped by a 30-yard pass 
from Sammy White, playing his 
first game on offense after first- 
stringer Roland James was hurt 
in a practice session. 

Football Facts 

By Emma Lue Jordan 

Did you know that: 

Football is one of the most 
popular college sports in the 
United States. 

The first football game 
in the United States was played 
in November. 1869. Rutgers de- 
feated Princeton playing Soccer 

Before the game starts, the 
referee tosses a coin in the pres- 
ence of the field captains of the 
two teams. The captain winning 
the toss chooses one of the fol- 
lowing privileges The loser has 
the other privilege: 

1 — To choose whether his 
team will kick or receive. 

2^To choose the goal his team 
will defend. 

Each team has eleven men. 
seven in the line and four in 
the backfield. 

The game starts with the kick 

The ball can be advanced in 
four different ways: 

1 — The player can run with 
the ball. 

2 — The ball can be thrown or 

3_The ball may be advanced 
because of a penalty. 

4 — A kick, or punt, may ad- 
vance the ball. 

A team can lose the ball four 

l_It can fail to make ten 
yards in four downs. 

2— The ball carrier can drop, 
or fumble the ball. 

3 — A defensive player can 
catch, or intercept, a pass. 

4 — The offensive team can 
punt the ball. 

A touchdown, or six points, is 
scored when the team to which 
the ball legally belongs com- 
pletes a down, and any part of 
the ball is on, above, or behind 
the other team's goal line.

Profirani Study 
Underway At NYU 

New York, N. Y,— (LP,)— The 
first thorough revision of NYU's 
University College curriculum 
since 1914, based on recommen- 
dations of the Special Commis- 
sion on Curriculum, requires 
careful study and a correspond- 
ing delay before implementation 
into the arts program, accord- 
ing to Dean William B. Baer. 

Major recommendations in- 
clude basic revision of degree 
prerequisites, expansion of the 
honors program, institution of 
permanent term grades, in.stead 
of year grades, area majors, 
four-hour language courses, a 
committee to supervise required 
studies, and elimniation of point 
credit from the basic ROTC pro- 

The Commission set its re- 
quirements for the degree as 
demonstrated knowledge or pro- 
ficiency in oral and written 
English, the history and liter- 
ature of Western civilization, 
two social sciences, one natural 
science and completion of basic 
ROTC or physical training. But 
no points of credit are to be al-

The old feeling of the World

The victorious Milwaukee 
Braves shocked the nation. The 
New York Yankees were chosen 
2-1 favorites over the Braves, 
but in the end they went down 
fighting as losers. 

Lew Burdette shall always be 
remembered by the Braves and 
her fans, because the great Bur- 
dette in three .series victories 
and two shutouts over the Yanks 
made for the Braves her first 
National League pennant and

By Johnny Caiupbell. Jr, 
Few will remember, but not 
lung ago, across the beautiful 
moss-laden campus of Savan-

a fellow of tremendous physical 
power who co\ild run, block with 
precision, pass and kick an oval- 
shaped ball with the urcatest of

Football," He was not noted for 
his inleUoct - not acquainted 
with Sophocles, O, B. Shaw, and 
tlic like; the concept of the mar- 
yliuU propensity to consume 
i-ompletely baffled hlni; but 
nevertheless, "Mr, Football" was 
one of the most popular fel- 
lows on the campus, 

Because of his peculiar tilfts, 
"Mr. Football" was well loved 
and respected by the students, 
Including the few "cBKhcads." 
on Saturdays when he displayed 
his wealth of talents, the stands 
would overflow with spectators 
who came from far and near to

Scintillating broken field run-

executed line plays, beautiful

but a few of the many treats 
which the fans enjoyed. 

in victory the fans rejoiced 
wildly: In defeat they were mag- 
nanimous, for they knew "Mr. 
FooI,baH" liad performed an ex- 
cellent job, and the cheers were 
as long and loud as In victory. 
That almost Indefliiuble i)hc-

blow to "Mr. Football." No one 
knows the real reason for the 
unwarranted attack, but it is 
whispered that "Mr. Football" 
had become too big a man. Ac-

as the students are concerned, 
he may as well be. Late at night 
ho can be seen limping sadly 
across the campus soliloquizing 
about the wondrous days before

ThrouKhoiil America today, hleh school Braduales are enterlne 

insiilulions of hlfher learnine. As Ihe dawn of their rolleee careers 

begins they find themselves helni; oriented into an environment 

tvhlch 'is completely different from the 


These students come from dif- 
ferent towns and cities Each 
brings with him his own pecu- 
liar characteristics and Ideas. 
Expressing these Ideas Is one of 
the main objectives of the stu- 
dents. Teachers attempt to em- 
phasize expression of Ideas In 
their classes. They want to 
know what a student thinks, 
how he thinks, and whether his 
thoughts are Important enough 
to share with other pc!0|)le. 

To find out some of the an- 
swers to these questions, two 
staff reporters Interviewed sev- 
eral members of the Freshman 
class about their reactions to 
college life. Below are some of 
their responses, 

Kllse Uryant said, "Being In 
college Is a learning experience 
and the teachers are veiy help- 
ful In trylnl! to get us llhe 
freshmen) adjusted to college' 

"College life Is wonderful and 
challenging," stated l.uara Oar- 
vln, "Teachers and up|)erclass- 
inen are very helpful," 

Closely eonectcd with the aca- 
demic side of the college Is the 
social life, 

l.iilii Kell Clianec (ixprcsscd 
licr views on the social asijccl of 
college life by saying, "I feel as 
If I have more freedom hci'c at 
Savannah State College than I 
had at my high school. There 
arc more things to do here and 
more places to go. Since I've 
been here I've made many 
frhuids, both uppcrclassmen and 
freshmen. The atinosi)here Is 
very pleasant," 

One unidentified Interviewee 
declared, "I don't believe the so- 
cial program here Is as organ- 
ized as It shoiUd be. When I was 
In high school, we gave ciulte a 
number of dances and other ac- 
tivities. Since I've been here, 
only two dances have been giv- 
en. Now that we are In college, 
I believe we should be treated 
nice adults." 

Out of every group of individ- 
uals there are some who arc 
able to lead others. Concerning 
leadership, vice president of the 
class, Alfonso McLaiii, said, 
"Leadership Is essential for any 
striving organization In order to 
become successful In Its work." 

These are .some thoughts of 
the freshmen who liave looked 
Into their minds and tried to 
express their opinions about 
some problems they have met 
and some experiences tiley have 
had thus far. 

For some, it was too early to 
give a definite answer; for oth- 
ers, the orientation period Is 
challenging, a learning experi- 
ence, a process of growing up, 
a time to accept responsibility 
and leadership.

He explored the subject from 
a military, economic, scientific 
and political view. The satellite 
program In the United States is 
termed as project "Vanguard" 
and. in Ru.HSla termed "Sput- 
nik" Mr. Mendenhall stated 
the launching of "Sputnik" was 
an event centered around the 
I O Y I International Geophysi- 
cal Year), the period of time 
from July, 1957, to December 31, 
1958. During the I G Y a group 
of nations were to attempt 
the launching of a satellite. 

Russia, on October 4, 1957, 
sent an earth satellite, the first 
satellite, spinning through space. 
It weighs 184 pounds, has a 
speed of 18,000 miles an hour, 
and altitude of 560 miles. Mr. 
Mendenhall stated that the 
launching of "Sputnik" could 
mean control of the Earth. How 
much technical data Russia has. 
It Is not known, but, he stated, 
"In the launching of this satel- 
lite, Russia is a jump ahead of 
the United States." The types of 
Information obtained were listed 
as temperature, objects In con- 
tact, measure of cosmic rays, 
corrosion and measurement of 
pressure. Pressure as the great- 
est disadvantage of sending hu- 
man slnto space was further 
cited In the talk. A suit has been 
completed by the Navy but its 
tightness made it undesirable 
for human wearing. Mr. Men- 
denhall cited another hazard in 

human space travel, the possi- 
bility of returning. 

In stating some of the possible 
reasons the United States lost 
the satellite race, he stated the 
three stages necessary to set a 
satellite spinning in space. They 
were: (1) maintenance of a ve- 
hicle; 121 adequate energy; C3l 
high enough altitude. Difficulty 
seems to be In the maintenance 
of adequate energy to orbit the 
satellite. He further stated the 
other po.sslble reasons for delay 
In "Project Vanguard" as being 
political, the secondlzing of the 
project, and the competition 
made existing possibly in the 
separate branches of the mili- 
tary forces. 

The attending students and 
faculty members listened Intent- 
ly to the statements concerning 
the "Artificial fellow traveler 
around the earth." In the faces 
of each of them, was an ex- 
pression hoped never to be seen 
In these rich United States. As 
the question and answer period 
progressed, tones of desperation 
seeped into the voices of the 
audience. Yet, our fears can not 
Imagine the fears of our allies, 
who found hope and a measure 
of security in alliance with us. 

The library is to be commend- 
ed for making the initial step 
toward broadening campus ac- 
tivity after class hours The talk 
was thoroughly enjoyed and we 
look forward to many enriching 
talks In the future. 

Try New Demerit 
System At Colby 

WatervlUe, Me. — ' IP.) — The 
Women's Student League on the 
campus of Colby College has 
adopted a new simphfied de- 
merit system. By this revised 
system, offenses, which previous- 
ly have been treated singularly, 
are now put on a cumulative 

In this system, the women will 
have much more leeway regard- 
ing petty offenses, since no ac- 
tion can now be taken against 
them until they have been fined 
ten demerits- The Women's 
League felt that "campusing" 
was beginning to lose its effec- 
tiveness. The revised demerit 
system will give a more positive 
attitude toward penalties, and 
an opportunity for individual 

Furthermore, the "repeated 
offenders' of dormitory regula- 
tions will now appear before in- 
terdorm council when they have 
accumulated ten demerits, while 
girls who have forgotten only 
two or three minor regulations 
will be more fairly treated. 

This system will allow the 
dorm councils to function as 
house governing bodies, Instead 
of as penalty courts. The entire 
system, it was emphasized here, 
is an adult approach to the vio- 
lations which occur most fre- 
quently and is an equitable sys- 
tem for college women.

Hartford, Conn. (IP.) — Fac- 
ulty members at Trinity College 
have approved an unlimited cuts 
proposal for the 1957-58 aca- 
demic year. Absence privileges 
do not apply to the attendance 
requirement for Chapel unci 
Physical Education. 

Two other changes in the aca- 
demic rules were promulgated: 
Effective with the class enter- 
ing in September, 1957, any stu- 
dent who has not received at 
the end of a term passing grades 
in four courses with grades of 
at least seventy In two of these 
courses will be placed on pro- 
bation for the following term, 

The faculty also voted to 
tighten the "D" rule. In order to 
enter his junior year, a student 
must have grades of 70 In at 
irast five full courses or the 
■ quivalent in one semester 

In another local move to 
strengthen the scholarship pic- 
ture, the Inter-fraternlty Coun- 
cil has voted to the aver- 
age for pledging to 70 The mo- 
tion states that no man shall 
be pledged to a fraternity after 
the entrance of the Class of '61 
unless he .shall have a 70 aver- 
age at the conclusion of the se- 
mester prior to his pledging. 

Commenting on the status of 
fraternities on this campus, 
Dean of Students Joseph C. 
Clarke stated that "the faculty 
and the administration are in 
favor of fraternities"

Choosinp^ A Career 

llv .Inliiiiiv ( ;irii|)lM-ll, .\r. 

It Is an obvious fuel that virtually every student who enters 
collogo docs so with tht; jjurpose of preparing himself for a career, 
The choice of u suiiiible career Is one of the most important, and 
at the same time, one of tlie most difficult decisions that an indi- 
vidual Is called upon to make. Much frustration, disappointment, 
and bitterness ai-lse In later life because of an unwise career choice 
made while In coJleRe. 

Not too long ago, th(;rc was practically but a single career that 
was open to a Negro college graduate in Uie South, That career 
was teaclilng. But in recent yours, there has been a startling re- 
versal of thut trend. Our economy toduy is hlglily developed, culling 
for skills and technical knowhow wUliout much regard to who 
possesses them. ThLs has greatly aided the Negro, opening to hini 
many opportunltiivs in Industry and business, which previously 
were seultKl. 

A great deal of counselling and orientation Is given to entering 
students today. But many still cling to the old careers Instead of 
branching out, into tlie vast technical world. The economic emanci- 
pation of the Negro seonis to lie In tlie field of technology, where 
knowledge and ability are the prime requirements for employment. 

Two of the foremost motives for choosing any career are the 
pecuniary benefits that arc reaped, and the degree of freedom 
that Is grunted to the individual In the performance of his job. 

Teachers' salaries lug pitifully when compared with those in 
other fields, und raises are slow and infrequent. Bonuses and other 
incentives for efficiency und top-rate performances are entirely 
lucking. And recently academic freedom hus taken a severe punish- 
ment. With the nuiiu'i'ous loyulty ouths, pledges to uphold purticu- 
Inr institutions, restrii'tlons on membersliip In certain organiza- 
tions, and many other legislative impositions, it is difficult to see 
how one can ttiueh the truth witliout transgressing a statute and. or 
Jeopardizing his job. 

It would be qiilte wise for one who Is just entering college to 
reexamine liis career choice in light of recent developments, and 
if n choice 1ms not as yet been made, to inquire Into the numerous 
job opportimltles that are available in otlier fields.

The Pilgrims, despite the hardships they had endiu'ed during 
their first, trying year In America, gathered together in their re- 
spective settlements to Ihank and give praise to God. This is con- 
sidered by many as tlie first Thanksgiving. There is a story that 
even the Indians joined in this thanksgiving. 

It is fitting that we today pause to give praise and thanks- 
giving to God for the many blessings we have received.

Each student enrolled at Savannah State College is equally 
i-esponslble tor maintaining the campus and its facilities. Pride in 
one's campus should be tlie enforcing agency. 

A school Is usually judged by the type of people It produces, 
but very often It is judged by appearance. For the benefit of those 
who do not know. Savannah State College's campus possesses a 
stantly used; so. why do some of us take short cuts across tlie grass'? 
in the country. Which of you would choose to mar the beauty of 
our moss-laden oaks with trash? Tourists are often riding about 
our campus. Would you have them leave with a picture distorted 
by litter which should have been put In one of the receptacles 
distributed about the campus? 

We all know that grass will not grow In a path which Is con- 
stantly used, so, why do some of us take short cuts across the grass'? 

Most of us who drive automobiles are guilty of disfiguring the 
campus. Yes, we are as guilty as the "lltter-bug" and the "grass 
crusher" We should park In designated parking areas only, and 
not give the Impression of disorganization by parking in front of 
buildings and blocking driveways. Remember, our campus repre- 
sents each of us. 

It is hoped that when this article Is read, each student will 
develop a new pride in his campus and make himself personally 
responsible for maintaining It.

As the periscope on the international picture, it brings 
into relief many incidents of undetermined influence on the nerv- 
ous peace and tranquility of our mid-century world. 

Probably the most a.stoundlng is the firing of the second earth 
satellite by Ru.ssia. Sputnik II is whirling around in outer space 
at the phenomenal rate of over 17,840 miles per hour. 1,056 miles 
out In space. Along with its multitude of electronic gadgets. Sputnik 
11 has a live dog inside. An effort to gain data on the effects of 
outer .space travel on living animals is being made. Data such as 
a record of the breathing, heart beat and blood pressure of Curly 
fthe dog's name In English) are being collected for future use in 
man's Invasion of space. The military significance of this satellite 
1b said by some to He in its weight, which might be taken as an 
Indication that Russia has developed a new version of the dreaded 
Intercontinental ballistic missile. 


The peri.scope now swings to the West and NATO, a summit 
meeting which is planned for Paris in December The purpose of 
this meeting is to evaluate the West's position in the light of the 
recent Rus.sian advances in the field of space travel and the military 
.significance of these advances. One of the topics that will receive 
a groat deal of attention is the suggestion that the U.S. and the 
other western nations pool their scientific resources in an effort to 
speed up their programs and catch up with the Russians, 

The periscope moves swiftly across the Atlantic Ocean which 
has shrunk to the size of a small pond in these times of outer-space 
lnva.sIon. At present the country is involved in discussions of Ameri- 
can stereotyping and anli-lntellectualism, said by some to be the 
real reason for our failure to keep pace with a fast-changing 
scientific world. 

These discussions are highlighted in the case of one Private 
Ernie Schultz, 24-year old mathematician, who was inducted into 
the Army and assigned duties as clerk typist at Fort Lee. Virginia. 
This situation was brought to the attention of defense department 
officials by Pvt. Schultz's former professor, Dr. Linderman. who 
reported that Schultz had Invented his own system of algebra to 
work certain problems that could not be worked any other way. 
Dr Linderman called Schultz the greatest mathematical brain he 
has ever encountered. 


Moving southwest to Texas, the periscope hears reports of a 
mysterious, brightly lighted phantom object squatting in roadways 
and then taking to the air just as mysteriously as it appears. Dozens 
of people have told of witnessing this phenomenon which is said 
to be about 200 feet long and egg-shaped. No adverse effects have 
been noted, except that it causes power failure in motor vehicles 
and that it has caused several people to faint at the sight of it, 
Are we to believe that while we are invading space, spacemen are invading earth? First flying saucers and now the Phantom 
Thing. This writer can remember when Buck Rogers was considered 
fantastic. Can you?

By Mary Jean Lester 
In the gay briglit weatlier of 

sharing Spring, 
The flowers winked tlieir eyes 

as they began to sing. 
For they were happy and their 

hearts were gay. 
And the sun shone brightly to 

the birth of the day. 

The flowers thought Spring 

would last forever, 
And they would only know tlie 

joy of fair weather. 
But Autumn came, slowly. 

dressed serenly in gold 
And grasped the .loy wliich tliey 

strived to hold, 

Tiie flowers hushed their sing- 
ing and lowered their eyes. 

And drooped their faces is if to 

To their surprise Autumn had 

The fragrance and beauty which 
Spring had brightened.

When everyone turns you down. 
And everything goes wrong. 
She will keep a secret for you. 

When you feel that you can 

trust no one. 
Just look at her shining face 
Makes you know 
Slie will keep a secret for you. 

Though the night may seem so 

Then her starry face peeks 
Through the fold 
Just to say, "There is someone 

To keep a secret for you." 

The showers go when comes the 

month of May. 
The silver night is pushed aside 

by day. 
But love, true love, is lasting; 

it will stay. 

A child is born; he lives but for 

a day 
His hair, so soft, will soon be 

turned to grey; 
Much cherished youth will then 

have passed away. 
But love, true love, is lasting; it 

will stay. 

American Education Week 

This month we celebrate 
American Education Week. 
Schools and colleges, parent 
teacher associations, civic and 
lay groups will turn their special 
attention to American schools 
Effort will be made to do some 
evaluation of the efficiency of 
the schools, to clarify purposes 
of education, to project present- 
day needs and future trends. 

The celebration this year will 
be observed under conditions 
quite different from those of 
former years. During the last 
month, events have moved rap- 
idly enough to get a clearer pic- 
ture of the immediate present 
and the not too distant future. 
Recent achievements in the de- 
velopment of earth satellites will 
have a special bearing on edu- 
cation and schools everywhere. 
In one aspect, the trend of re- 
cent years toward the inclusion 
and improvement of the teach- 
ing of science and mathematics 
will receive added implementa- 
tion and provision. Concentra- 
tion and training in these areas 
will be required to participate 
adequately in the conquering of 
outer space. 

It may well be expected that 
exploits and ventures in this 
area will tend to divert atten- 
tion of nations from war and 
liuman destruction which occu- 
pied the stage for the past two 
decades. The relaxing of strife 
among nations may permit col- 
laboration and cooperation im- 
possible to envision before. The 
kind of cooperation and partici- 
pation required to explore other 
bodies in the universe will place 
emphasis on other fields than 
the natural sciences and mathe- 
matics. The social sciences and 
the humanities will receive new 
orientations in terms of world 
collaboration rather tlian lim- 
ited national or hemispheric em- 

This year attention will be 
given to the early impacts cre- 
ated by the launching of Sput- 
niks 1 and II. The American 
schools will be looked at criti- 
cally in terms of national par- 
ticipation in this new venture. 
Students in college today repre- 
sent the advance guard of the 
revolutionary new era that is 
dawning. The boys and the girls 
now enrolled in our colleges and 
universities will be the ones 
whom history will label as the 
pioneers of outer space. The sat- 
uration points expected in em- 
ployment may disappear under 
these new and absorbing ex- 

Students at all levels of the 
college will find it necessary to 
consider additional points of 
orientation for their training 
and development. Man every- 
where on earth will be provided 
witii a new outlook on life and 
the universe. For many years to 
come college students will be ex- 
pected to participate earlier and 
longer in man's conquest of out- 
er space and planets that lie 
beyond the earth.

Editorial Examination 

(ACP)— Editors of the Southern Illinois university's EGYP- 
TIAN began the year by stating their view of what a newspaper is. 

What is a newspaper? 

A disseminator of happenings, an advertising medium for busi- 
ness houses. 

A newspaper is both of these, plus a number of things But 
above all. it is a free voice. 

People may disagree as to what a paper should do. but most 
will agree that a paper must be free. No one denies that freedom 
can be abused. Nevertheless, freedom must be qualified, if it need 
be. by truth, decency and high ideals.

New Fashions

To complement this feeling, 
fashions in hairstyling have be-

are noted for their fluid, natural 
lines. The bouffant is now modi-

face, it is done so in graceful 
waves and dips, never skinned

It's what choices a woman 
makes that gives individuality to 
her dress. 

Some DO's for smart campus 
outfits : 

1. Keep in style— adopt the 
new look to your individuality. 

2. Blend your colors or use a 
-Single color in various tones. 

3. Fold in a scarf for that dif- 
ferent look 

4. Decide on one jewel— simple 
in form. 

5. Wear a dark neutral shoe 
at wil go well with all your 

Suggested colors for the

sea green and snow pink. 

The Denison Ihiiversitv Fa<uillv 
A])j)rovrs K('\ i.sod {.ow Program 

Granville. O.— il. P.)— The faculty at Denison University has 
passed a revised version of the cove program which had been 
recommended by the Curriculum Committee. Faculty passage cul- 
minates the Curriculum Committee recommendation, endorsement 
by the Committee on General Education and Senate approval. 
According to Dr. Parker Lich- of a survey which revealert thai 

tenstein. dean of the college. 
"The adopted program has at- 
tempted to introduce an clement 
of flexibility into the general 
education program." A year of 
foreign language and six hours 
of literature are required under 
the new system. 

Other core requirements re- 
main the same making a total 
of 60 or 62 hours of general edu- 
cation depending on whether 
the student takes a beginning or 
intermediate language course. 
However, a student with the per- 
mission of his major adviser, 
may waive up to eight hours of 
the 60-62 with the exception of 
Core 11-12, 18. 21-22. and one 
science. Thus the minimum gen- 
eral education requirement be- 
comes 52-54 hours. 

Under the new system, major 
advisers may . . . uiily waive 
courses with the approval of the 
(Jeparlnient chairman or by de- 
partment policy. Dr. Liehten- 
stein said I hat waiver eases 
would be considered on an in- 
dividual basis accordiiiK lu in- 
dividual needs. The revised core 
program will be effective with 
the Class of lfl61. 

The new program is essential- 
ly a compromise of faculty opin- 
ions on the purpose and aims of 
a general education program. 
Four main areas were considered 
in the revision of the present 
program, according to Dean 


1. It was felt that the adopted 
program combined with the pro- 
ficiency exams would create a 
more flexible and workable pro- 
gram. By utilizing proficiency 
examinations, capable students 
may waive courses in addition to 
the eight waivable hours of the 
core program. 

2. Foreign language was made 
part of the program as a result 

Denison was one of the I3il 
schools out of 830 surveyed that 
did not require a foreifin lan- 
Ruaiie for the A.U. decree. Con- 
sequently the proj-ram iuiuriui- 
ralcd Ihe tanj-uai-e requirenu-nt 
without subslilule.s or allernales 
into tlic core syslom, 

Itccause (he l;uiiU> was not 
overwhchninj;ly disposed to add 
the language requirement only 
one year has been made com- 
pulsory. However, it is hoped 
that students will be motivated 
to take the serond year as an 

:i Inlroduclion ol Ihe new re- 
quirements seems lo make the 
proposed Bachelor of Fine Arts 
degree unnecessary at the pres- 
ent lime. 

4. Willi specifle waiver provis- 
ions, the new program would 
make it less nevessary to grant 
special exemptions for students 
involved in 3-2 plans, ROTC and 


If oiitinuvd lioKi iiitiii- II 

students will have equal oppor- 
tunity to study old tests. 

4. Departmental committees to 
review tests before they are giv- 
en so as to make sure that ques- 
tions cover the principles In- 
volved, not mere trivia.

Pop Music Views 

(ACPj —Columnist Jean-Paul 
Richard surveys the pop music 
scene f o r NORTHEASTERN 
liEWS. Northeastern University. 
Boston, and comes up with these 

Let's look at what happened 
to "pop" music In the last few 
months. Some changes have oc- 

Roci: and roll is still with us. 
It may have lost a bit of its pop- 
ularity, but not enough to indi- 
cate that it is on its way out as 
some people have predicted. A 
good beat stiil seems to be what 
a lot of listeners want. 

The last six months have seen 
the rapid rise and the even more 
rapid downfall of Calypso. The 
Caribbean sound was the rage 
for a while, but it has now faded 
out of the picture almost com- 
pletely . . . 

The lack of enough authentic 
material and the poor job of 
Imitation probably cut the 
calypso craze short more than 
anything else. When the demand 
for calypso tunes arose, the mar- 
ket was flooded with poor imi- 

Calypso may be going out, but 
Hawaiian music seems to be on 
the way in. At present there are 
several songs with sounds from 
the islands which are rapidly 
gaining popularity . . . 

The latest and most welcome 
addition to the music scene are 
the "comeback" songs. These old 
standards have been freshened

Enduring Love

As I tread the golden S'inds,

Precious thoughts come back to

College Admissions 
Requirements Examined 

The Admissions Officers and 
Registrars for the fifteen state- 
supported colleges and universi- 
ties have just completed a two- 
day conference in Atlanta. The 
purpose of the meeting was to 
consider how students would be 
selected, as the number of appli- 
cants for college grow in the 
next decade The group met 
jointly with representatives of 
the public schools, the State De- 
partment of Education, and the 
College Entrance Examination 

Last year, the College Board 
Scholastic Aptitude Test, part of 
a nation-wide testing program 
for college admission, was re- 
quired for all entering students 
in state colleges and universities. 
Test scores were not used to se- 
lect students, but were filed 
away to determine later if stu- 
dents with different test scores 
make different grades. 

The comparison or scores vers- 
us grades will be made separate- 
ly for each of the 15 colleges in 
the System. Dr. J. A. Davia. Di- 
rector of Testing for the Board 
of Regents of the University 
System, stated: "It is quite like- 
ly that tests which predict 
grades accurately in an institu- 
tion may not work for a second 
college. " 

The Admissions officials also 
made plans for testing the value 
of other information about the 
applicant for use in selection of 
freshmen It has already been 
noted that applicants with good 
high school records and high 
test scores do better than appli- 
cants with the same test score 
but with poor high school rec- 

The group felt that only act- 
ual experience would show how- 
much weight can be put on the 
high school transcript, princi- 
pal's recommendations, and oth- 
er devices used in selecting stu- 
dents. "Only when this informa-

also announced that the college 
will move toward the establish-

tion Is known," Dr. Davis stated, 
"and after It has been tested by 
admitting all applicants anyway 
to see if predictions made on 
this basis would work out, will 
tests or other data be used in 
screening out poor college risks." 

The group also noted the im- 
portance of college entrance 
testing for the high schools and 
the need for exchanged Inform- 
ation and ideas with teachers 
and principals, Mr W, N Dan- 
ner, Jr., Registrar at the Uni- 
versity of Georgia, was elected to 
represent the group at the 
Spring meeting of the Georgia 
Education Association, and Mr, 
Ben Ingersol, Registrar at Sa- 
vannah State College, was elect- 
ed to represent the Negro col- 
leges in the Georgia Teachers 
and Education Assn. These men 
will explore ways and means ot 
sharing information derived 
from study now in progress of 
reasons for success in college. 

Applicants for state colleges 
again this year will be required 
to submit scores on the SAT be- 
fore admission Applications for 
the tests may be obtained by

Frequently hi life an Individual chooses to follow a path which

those who are able to Judge that the ptilh he has chosen is the 
wrong one, he oftentimes continues to walk down tlie path to sclf-

Nations are often saved from destruction by the same process 
An ominous event which portends grave consequences for the 
ultimate well'nrc of the nation often pinpoints long neglected ills 
that have bee nallowed to exist despite the caustic and vociferous 
cries oi an unlieeded few. 

The lull consequences of Sputniks I and II upon American 
customs and Institutions cannot at this time be fully appraised. 
But the impact of tlie Sputniks has already focused attention on 
the American educational systeui and on the country's traditional 
attitude towards her Intellectunls. 

l''or years a sinall minority luis been viRoruusly criticizing our 
schools aiitl eolb-Kes for their failure to maintain rigid aeademie 
.sliiiulards. Thr illhited i urri<'uhinis. the distortions of Dewey's 
))raKUiatlsin, and a host of olln-r ills, were in their words, inodueing 
a mass of uneducated Indiviihials, totally unable to llilnk. 

In vain were their cries, TlU'n along canw the Sputniks. Now 
one hears a vast c(uicei'led c\-y lo lighten uii, foi' the survival of the 
country may depend on the caliber of the thinkers that must be 
produced to meet the challenge with which we are now confronted. 

The Intelleelual lone not Interested In wliat Detroit is cooking 
up for the next, year), has always foiuid America to be hostile and 
cold. Viewed with susplclun and distrust, the Intellectual in America 
has become an outsider, an alien. With the emphasis on practicality, 
thinking rapidly became un- fashionable, and the thinker became 
a liability— one unable to act, The Intellectuals were made the 
laughing stock of America by humorists and cartoonists. Scientists 
and professors were caricatured to the extent that two well-known 
stereotyped figures have emerged, to wit, the mad scientist and 
the absent-minded professor, 

Since the advent of the Sputniks, there luivc been some favor- 
able sl^ns that pt-riiaps thr old Iraililional antipathy towards egg- 
lieiids is beinn icsscniMl. U is in Icni buped thai siuli sif;ns are not 
temporary, but will vonliniic lo grow until tlie inlcllectual is as 
firmly enlrenebrd in American society as hotdogs and football.

The most ordinary thing for any liuman being to liave wrong 
with him. next to the common cold. Is some kind of morbid fear. 
Just about everybody has one or more of these neuroses and he 
knows he has it; he knows It's utterly foolish and makes him ridi- 
culous; he feels completely baffled as to how to cope with the 

We're not going to discuss the ordh^ary fears that most of us 
have at one time or other, usually in childhood. Such fears as fear 
of the dark, of strange animals, of heights, of loud noises— these are 
not morbid fears, because most of us get rid of them in the process 
of growing up. Of course. If we keep them and nurse them along 
and suffer with them when we are adults, they become morbid 
fears, but that's another story, 

No, we're talking about the funny little eccentric fears that 
just about everybody has. like a woman we read of once who could 
walk into a lion's cage and never turned a hair, but an ordinary 
little piece of fuzzy cotton wool would send her right off into a fit 
of the the shakes. A psychologist found out what was the matter 
with her: years before, she'd reached out in the dark when she was 
half asleep and put her hand on something soft and fluffy and it 
turned out to be a mouse. Then of course the psychologist had to go 
back stilt further and find out why she was afraid of mice, but he 
finally got her all straightened out. 

Now probably ycu aren't afraid of wool, but it's a lead-pipe 
cinch you're afraid of something^. These neurotic fears are legion; 
one small dictionary lists seventy-six of them, all with fancy Greek 
and Latin names. Claustrophobia is one of the most common fears 
— that's fear of being in enclosed places. A fine way to insure your 
kids having that one when (hey grow up is to shut them up in a 
dark closes as a punishment. Then there's agoraphobia, or fear of 
wide-open spaces. You've heard about these people who never ven-

Evahiation Of 
Excellence Needed 

Recently our attention has 
been called to the .status of the 
United StaU'S in the field of 
.scientific achievement. Many 
Americans are trying to explain 
how It happened that the Rus- 
sians were able to launch satel- 
iltes ahead of the United States 
Since .scientific achievement de- 
pends upon the quality and ex- 
tent of education and training, 
thi.s .shock and the resulting 
confusion centered attention on 

In .some instances it has been 
said that too few American col- 
lege students are being educated 
in the scientific fields. Others 
Jiavc said that there is not only 
a shortage of students but even 
a greater shortage of teacTiers 
who can direct the learning ac- 
tlvllles. The shortage of teach- 
ers has been attributed to mea- 
ger salaries and low prestige of 
the profession. Salaries and 
monetary rewards can be in- 
creased at a very rapid rate, but 
the status of the leaching pro- 
fession will move at a very much 
slower rale. 

It is possible that the .system 
of values po.ssessed by many 
Americans has not encouraged 
those with superior abilities to 
do their best. In many high 
schools and colleges will be 
found Indications of low regard 
for excellence in scholarship, 
leadership, character, and cre- 
ative ability. One needs only to 
study the officers of student 
groups—classes, clubs, sororities, 
fraternities, and other socie- 
ties—to discover that the Indi- 
viduals best qualified have not 
been in many Instances elected 
to office 

In too many organizations the 
nominations and elections go to 
individuals wlio are known to be 
weak in scholarship, character. 
integrity, vision, and leadership. 
Students get into the habit of 
thinking thai everyone is equal- 
ly qualified fur all positions. In- 
dividuals vary widely in abilities 
and achievement at all levels of 
growth. Keeognition and uliliza- 
tion of tlie best in the group for 
the purpose lo Uv served provide 
for progress and growth. This 
disregard for cxeellenee in mind, 
boily. and personality favors the 
devclopnu-nl ol cultural mediuc- 
rity. A suciety whicli does not 
make the best use of its gifted 
intUviduals will find itself losing 
status and limiting progress. 

It is reasonable to suppose 
that the values developed in 
higli school and college will con- 
tinue to be the values of men 
and women after they have left 
the campus It is likely that 
shortages which have appeared 
ni the scientific field may well 
appear in the humanities and 
the social sciences. Leadership in 
all fields develops best and con- 
tributes most when it operates 
in a medium that encourages 

Class groups, elubs, societies, 
and fraternities which make use 
of the talented and the shied 
make a distinct contribution to 
the perpetuation of able leader- 
shij). Every individual is able to 
evaluate the group or groups in 
which he holds membership in 
terms of the extent to which 
proper values are placed upon 
the quality of excellence in indi- 
viduals. A study made by a com- 
mittee might reveal wh;U the 
students think of excellence as 
it is exhibited in the various

The Student Council Speaks 

By Robert Tindal 

Now that homecoming is over and the excitement generated by 
it has left, we find the college atmosphere reluming once more to 
the apathetic state During the homecoming celebration all activitier* 
were attended by the students very religiously. How grand it would 
be if all activities here at the college were attended with equal vigor. 

Possibly the lack of school spirit exhibited by the students is 
due to dissatisfaction by them with certain problems that confront 
them. If so the Student Council would like very much to know 
about these dissatisfactions and will endeavor to eradicate them. 
We realize that there are problems confronting the students of our 
college and all of the problems have answers and can be corrected 
where necessary. Each student has the responsibility to himself and 
to the school to search relentlessly for the answers and to work 
unceasingly for the correction of those that need correcting. Your 
Student Council is very much aware of the dissatisfaction of the 
student body with certain practices and procedures here at the 
College. We are aware also that some of these dissatisfactions are 
valid and some are Invalid. We are concerned with both for various 
reasons but most of all because we are here to serve you, but the 
hands of the Council are tied unless the student body and the stu- 
dents as individuals voice their grievances and support your Council 
whole heartedly in its effort to relieve these situations that are 
causing the dissatisfaction. 

The Council wishes to serve you but it cannot if you make your 
criticism out on the campus and make your grievances only to your 
friends and form small cliques among yourselves and then proceed 
to work against the school rather than for it, to the detriment of 
the school and yourself We are interested and will seek for the 
things right and deserving for you as mature adults. But if you as 
others before you have done persist in divorcing yourself from the 
issues that you are opposed to, then there is nothing that we can do 
to relieve the situation. 

If you have a legitimate problem the only mature way to seek an 
answer Is to bring the problem to the attention of your Council 
representative or any member of the Council, supplying him with 
the necessary information and giving him evidence to support your 
contention. Remember no one knows your problems if you keep 
them to yourself and therefore nothing can be done about them. 

We, the Council, believe that everyone affiliated with the college 
is interested in you and your welfare. It has been said by persons 
here that our students just don't want anything. We don't believe 
this and want you to prove this statement is false. 

Vhv Periscope 

By Robert Tindal 

The periscope shifted swiftly 
from the troubled continents of 
Africa and Europe to the U. S. 
upon hearing of sudden illness 
of President Eisenhower, suffer- 
ing from what was initially diag- 
nssed as a chill and finally as a 
light stroke The president's 
stroke caused many and varied 
repercussions throughout the 
world; echoes from the man on 
the street in England that he 
should return to his Gettysburg 
from to fast drops on the stock 
market on Wall Street. Sputnik 
was even removed from the 
lieadlines. No one can agree as 
to the total effect this latest ill- 
ness of the President, the third 
in two years, will have on him 
but his doctors and that is it 
will leave no lasting impair- 
ments of his faculties. 

Now back to Africa and Eu- 
rope where the situations gov- 
erning the peace of the world 
are magnified in the struggle of 
the West to contain communism 
within its present curtain. 

Tlie Periscope finds the com- 
petent Dag Hammarskjold in 
Amnion attempting to calm the 
latest uprising between Israel 
and the Arabs which has flared 
up over charges by Israel of bor- 
der incidents. Also chief among 

the agenda of items to be dis- 
cussed is the effectiveness of 
the UN truce machinery and the 
dispute over Israel convoys to 
Mount Seopus and Israeli en- 
clave held by her inside Jordan 

Moving the Periscope comes to 
Spain, where the Spanish are 
reported mapping tlie remnants 
of rebel Moroccan troops who 
attacked the Spanish Garrison 
at Ifni. There is very little to 
report from Ifni because the 
Spaniards have cast a blackout 
on ail news from this small Gar- 

The Periscope observes, as it 
sails back to America a rare oc- 
currence The solicitation of the 
Democratic candidate for presi- 
dent in the last election Mr. Ad- 
lai E. Stevenson as a foreign 
policy consultant. Mr, Stevenson 
was originally scheduled to ac- 
company the President an dad- 
vise him at the Paris conference 
of NATO, to be held this month, 
but due to the illness of the 
President, who may send Mr. 
Nixon, the Vice President, in his 
place. Some Republicans are re- 
luctant to send Mr. Stevenson

Fear: Man's Coninionest Enemy 

If iinliniied from jMigv 2* 
ture more than a block or so from home. That's what they've got. 
The average person who has agoraphobia just feels mildly un- 
comfortable and doesn't know why. if he's out in a wide flat space 

Related to these two fears are fear of being aloft in the air, 
fear of tunnels and basements, fear of mountains, of the ocean, etc 
And you probably know somebody who just can't stay alone two 
minutes. He had to be with somebody all the time, either he's rush- 
ing from one engagement to another or friends come to see him, 
and the minute they leave he's on the telephone trying to scare up 
somebody else to spend an hour or so with. He has monophobia, 
or fear of being alone. It's not that he's being sociable — he just 
can't stand being alone. 

Then there's pantophobia, or fear of being In a crowd, and 
xenphobia. which is fear of meeting strangers. There are morbid 
fears of being in the company of men or women. There are fears 
of being contaminated by dirt or germs, of catching some particular 
disease: fear of certain colors, or fear of blood, of dogs or cats or 
horses or snakes or spiders. Some people are even afraid of sum'ight 
or cold wind or rain and of course thunder storms. There is the 
fear of death, of water, of fire and of being poisoned. 

But one fear that many people of this modern age have, and 
especially college students, is the fear of not being able to succeed 
in life. We as college students face this problem today because these 
are hectic times and it seems to take more to succeed in life than 
it used to. We enter college with the conviction that this will help. 
College to many students is what the psychologist Is to an extreme 
neurotic. It helps him to combat these fears. 

But in the end it does one well to remember that he is not the 
only one with fears. And man's worst enemy is fear.

Concern Over Control 

<ACPj— similar concern about 
the freedom of a responsible 
student Is reflected In Dave Ma- 
ney's "View Point" column in 
bama Polytechnic Institute. Au- 
burn, Ala, Here he develops his 
idea that "the morals of a stu- 
dent are his own " 

I've often wondered about the 
set up of the university with re- 
gard to their control of the pri- 
vate lives of students. There 
seems to be a tendency In many 
states, Including Alabama, tor 
the university to lessen their in- 
fluence on the extra-curricular 
life of the student. If the church 
school, which was once Auburn, 
could be compared with the uni- 
versity that is Auburn today, the 
change would be quite evident. 

At Auburn, however, the re- 
linquishing of this control has 
rolled to a halt. Many of the 
faculty and administrative per- 
sonnel here still cling to the be- 
lief that it is the duty of the 
university to not only train and 
educate minds and bodies but 
also to regulate and govern the 
moral standards of the students. 
This may be well and good. It 
does seem never the less that 
such control is carried to un- 
needed extremes. 

Is such extraneous control ac- 
tually necessary? A person while 
attending college is generally 
considered an adult by society. 
He is considered an adult capa- 
ble of making his own decisions 
regarding both his personal 
morality and his status as a stu- 
dent If as a student, he falls to 
make the correct decision and 
fails scholastlcally. the universi- 
ty has exerted a negative con- 
trol In forcing him to make a 
decision between success or fail- 
ure as a student. The control of 
the university thus has on a 
student should be sufficient. 

The morals of a student are 
his own. They were formed 
through parental and other In- 
fluences many years before his 
arrival at a university. His mor- 
als may or may not be satisfac- 
tory as judged. Why, though, 
should It be the function of the 
university to try to govern the 
morality of the students? Adults 
everywhere find the laws of the 
land adequate for their private 

Were this a church school, 
with its restricted viewpoints in 
many matters, the very beliefs 
upon which such a school would 
be founded would demand that 
there be a method for the form- 
ing and shaping of morals at the 
college level. But this is not a 
church school Nor is it some 
sect to form the new moral 
norms of society. This is a state 
university, existing at the plea- 
sure of the state, supported by 
the state, and attended by stu- 
dents of all religions, beliefs, and 
morals Auburn is an institution 
to provide a center of knowledge 
where the eligible citizen may 
continue to learn.

Dr. Joan L. Gordon, associate

Crazy College Customs 

(ACP)— Fun and games on 
campus get some editorial con- 
sideration. This from the Fresno, 
Fal,, junior college "Rampage"; 

The youth of today is probably 
the group which is most heavily 
attacked by public criticism and 
censure. The younger college 
generation Is not excluded from 
this category. 

During the 1920's and 30's col- 
lege campuses In this country 
saw widespread outbrcak.s of 
radical behavior. Communist 
groups were springing up on va- 
rious campuses along with the 
soapbox speakers who voiced 
their radical opinions. Also, 
bathtub gin parties and swallow- 
ing goldfish were the rage In 
college life. 

Today's college student Is far 
less apt to express himself or 
his inner turmoils through such 
unconventional methods as 
those practiced 20 and 30 years 

While it may be good that the 
college student of today has be- 
come far less explosive in his 
mannerisms, the aura of con- 
rormity he has assumed may be 
considered lethal. 

This situation may be consid- 
ered far more dangerous than a 
riotous student outbreak over 
the outcome of a football game 

With today's stress on social 
acceptance and security many 
students have been rendered 
either fearful or incapable of 
formulating opinions and ideas 
of their own.

Students have expressed 
themselves on subjects ranging 
from intercollegiate athletics to 
academic freedom, from federal

Student reactions prompted by the induction ceremony of Alpha 
Kappa Mu. Thursday, November 23. at Savannah State College 
were expressed in informal interviews with three students; Willie 
Hamilton, a science major, Betty Cumbess, an elementary education 
major, and Margaret Bing. a business major. Dr. E. K. Williams. 
advisor of AKM, disclosed information regarding the tutorial system 
of Savannah State. 

President congratulates John Stiles following a special assembly 
opening the 1958 Pciio Drive. Standing left to right are: Robert 
Tindal. Yvonne Williams. John Stiles, chairman of the colored 
di\-ision for the Chatham County March of Dimes, Dorothy Davis, 
Miss Savannah State. Carl Roberts, and President W. K. Payne. 

Willie Hamilton stated that he 
felt proud to become a member 
of the honor society, but he in- 
.sisted, "the general reaction is 
difficult to explain". He said 
that he had been inspired by 
teachers and students and he 
held several places open for his 
classmates to follow. 

Betty Cumbess said, "I saw 
the induction ceremony in the 
spring quarter of 1957, and I 
felt that I would never become 
a member of a group like this." 
Betty Cumbess wa.s notified of 
her eligibility by Dr E K, Wil- 
liams. She also stated that the 
.speech by Dr. Bond, guest speak- 
er at the induction ceremony. 
was meant to inspire. 

Margaret Bing, a business 
education major, expressed her 
reactions in one word — "proud," 
Margaret commented that the 
two selections from the choir 

at the induction ceremony were 
beautifully sung. 

A short interview with Dr 
E. K- Williams, the advisor to 
Alpha Kappa Mu, revealed that 
the tutorial system at Savannah 
State College, began In 1954-55. 
This system Is primarily under 
the direction of Alpha Nu chap- 
ter. Each department head as- 
sists in planning the program 
and suggests students who are 
suited to tutor for each depart- 
ment. Dr. Williams .stated. 

According to Dr, Williams, the 
purpose of the tutorial system 
is to stimulate scholarship, to 
decrease the number of students 
failing and to promote better 
relationship between teachers 
and students. 

Dr. Williams further said tu- 
tors have accompllshd much 
with many students.

The Savannah State College 
Debating Club was organized 
during the month of January 
under the advlsorshlp of B, E. 
Black, assLsLant profe.s.sor of .so- 
cial science and H. M. Jason, 
associate i)rufe.ssor of languages 
and literature. With the ever- 
Increa.slng inoblems that con- 
front American .societies today, 
many .students were prompt to 
participate In the organization 
of the club. 

The club has as its three-fold 
purpose; Mi to give the students 
an opportunity to develop their 
ability as public speaker.s; i'Z) to 
give the students an opportunity 
to discuss questions of current 
Interest; and (3) to give the .stu- 
dents an opportunity to match 
their Intellectual powers with 
students of other Institutions, 

With these purposes in mind 
It Is hoped that the students will 
become more Interested In public 
and national affairs which will 
enable them to deal with prob- 
lems In this society. 

At present the debate question 
being studied Is: "Be it resolved 
that the requirement of mem- 
bership in a labor organization 
as a condition of employment 
should be Illegal." 

The following persons were 
elected to office; President, 
Grover Thornton; Vice Presi- 
dent, Eugene J. Johnson; Secre- 
tary, Yvonne Williams; Assistant 
Secretary, Kay Frances Strip- 
ling; Publicity Director, Daniel

The Revival of Schoolhm 

By Harry V. Nevels 

Patriotism has always been the mark of a democratic country 
and here in America we treasure our national pride. Anything that's 
American has the whole of the United States behind it Americans 
are thought by Europeans to be egoists. 

We Americans are proud of ourselves and our heritage. This 
spirit of patriotism is evident in every phase of our lives. This 
spirit Is a part of America itself. 

At Savannah State College, we too have that spirit of patriotism 
for our country, and we once had pride for our school. But tor 
some reason or other we have lost some of that school pride that 
we once had Some people call It lack of school spirit but we say 
It is lack of SCHOOLISM. iSchoollsm means love of school, and 
devotion to the welfare of one's school I, This spirit should and must 
be revived. And this can only be accomplished when we as students 
are aware of the needs of our school. We should not wait for the 
president of our Institution to tell us about the needs of Savannah 
State; we should have seen what was needed long ago. 

Perhaps in looking for something to do we cannot see what's 
to be done. Here are some things that would greatly improve our 

Each organization could take it upon itself to keep our campus 
free of litter by volunteering to keep the campus clean one week 
at a time. During this week this organization could pick up paper, 
post non-lltter signs and anything else that would make students 
try to keep the campus clean. 

There is the old college park that could be revived by planting 
flowers and cleaning Ihe grounds and repairing the dock. 

There is the old fish pond that could be cleaned out and used 
as a shrine for some organization. 

And there is the liberty bell, though it is very seldom used, 
that could be cleaned out and flowers could be planted around it 
lo make it more attractive. And perhaps in the near future it will 
be used. 

These are a few of the many things that could be fixed up 
around our campus. Not only would the repairing of these few 
things on our campus make it more beautiful but it would also 
revive that old Schoollsm that has been lost for so long. So let's 
make the next four weeks "The Revival of Schoollsm" month.

plans for Implementation in a new year. Whether they will be 
accompUshd or not depends more on you than on us.

ment llie report of President Eisenhower's Committee on Education 
llejond the High School. Only you can hold the discussions and 
plan the efforts necessary to help evaluate lurrieula and teaching 
methods, raise faculty salaries and eliminate unnecessary clerical 
loads, arouse public interest in and support for higher education, 
advance student responsibility for self-learning and preserve indi- 
viduality on expanding campuses. 

Tlic International Commission can report on the threat to 
academic freedom and human dignity in South African education- 
It Is your protests which hearten those who oppose these measures 
the gives and government grounds for pause. At home, the impetus 
for seminars to consider the problems of desegregation on campus 
or small conferences to evaluate intergroup relations and the 
selection of social group members on the basis of personal worth 
and character must come from the campus— perhaps in response 
to experiences and material the Association can provide but created 
and run by those most directly effected. 

Our horizon must expand beyond the campus level— whether 
local, regional, national or international— to include the entire scope 
of higher education as a minimum We passed a series of resolutions 
at the 10th Congress last Augst outlining a definite program of 
assistance to education for the Association to support by legislative 
activity and publicity. The National Executive Committee and Stafi 
are fulfilling the mandates, but how effective this will be depends 
largely on whether individual campuses contact their legislators 
on the same measures. 

Unfortunately, rising enrollments, racial and religious prejudice, 
currlcular inadequacies, proposals for educational legislation, and 
tlie confusion of next year's freshmen as to why they came to 
college and what they should seek will not wait — can we?

can afford peace, and goodwill, 
and a pattern to live by. 

Not only was Your gift super- 
lative to all others, but it came 
at the most unique time of the 
year, before the beginning of a 
new journey. At such a time, 
when I am confused, discour- 
aged, and uncertain from passed 
days, I can find in Your gift a 
guiding light. 

I must not think for a selfish 
moment, that this wonderful 
gift was given to me alone, for 
the gift was a Savior. Jesus 
Christ who will bring peace and 
eternal life to all who will accept 

I pray that the whole world 
will graciously receive Thy gift, 
and give thanks unto Thee. 

Yours to perpetuate,

Dear Mr. Editor: 

I would like to call your atten- 
tion to the fact that our student 
newspaper (The Tiger's Roar) 
has not been carrying all the 
news about our school organiza- 
tions and extra-curricular activi- 
ties here at Savannah State Col- 
lege; therefore, we the students 
are very much disturbed. 

We enjoy very much reading 
news about other schools but 
would be very happy if more of 
our own news were published in 
order to give each individual an 
opportunity to know what is go- 
ing on within the walls of our 
college and its organizations so 
that the students in years to 
come may be able to get a broad 
picture of our college life after 
we are gone. 

Please look into this matter 
and let us make our paper one 
of the best ever published at 
Savannah State College. 

Yours truly, 
Leon Coverson

college is to gain knowledge." 
He further stated that many 
men live for a long time but 
never accomplish anything, 

"Your time should be well 
spent and something should be 
accomplished." Reverend Patter- 
son stated. The students of to- 
day are the doctors, lawyers and 
ministers of tomorrow. 

The program was further 
highlighted by a duet, sung by 
two members of the fraternity, 
the Greek Medley and the Ome- 
ga hymn.

To all Ihrid miniled larihs— 
Have yoii ever looked at your 
clothes wardrobe and asked 
yourself "why doesn't It ever 
grow? Why docs It cost so much 
to liiake It gi'ow'.'" 

Replenishing your wardrobe 
can be done quickly, efficiently 
and tor very little cost with just 
a little Initiative on your part. 
Sewing Is the answer to that 
ever-lingering "what am I lo 
wear" qviestlon. 

This goes for beginners loo! 
All you need to start Is a piece 
of fabric, a "simple to make 
pattern", needle, thread, etc., 
and a little will power. It Us an 
advantage to sew at this .season 
of the year for most of us can 
make a cute skirt fi'om one yard 
of 5-1" fabric. 

For the beginner I would sug- 
gest a simple skirt pattern with 
as few pattern pieces as possible. 
Study and follow the directions 
carefully and with a little tutor- 
ing from a more advanced per- 
son, you will have begun to In- 
crease that wardrobe. 

To llKise who have more expe- 
rlrnce why not try a jumper 
sheath and set It oft with a pret- 
ty scarf or eutc scatter pins. 
You'll be surprised at the attrac- 
tive results. 

You will be able to get winter 
fabrics at vei'y reasonable prices 
so why not get handy with a 
needle and lead that "I made It 
myself" fashion parade.

By Kay Frances Stripling 

A one-inch blanket of snow turned the City of Savannah into 
a winter wonderland on February 13. The fh-st snowfall since 1899 
was ushered in by a skidding mercury that plummeted to 13 degrees. 

The only thing hot on this day was the temper of the residents 
as they struggled with broken water lines, frozen autos. and cold feet. 

Sleet and ice added to the chilly phenomenon. Ice adorned the 
yards in breathtakingly beautiful configurations as a result of fau- 
cets and sprays left open the night before the "Great Snow." 

Officially, the Weather Bureau measured the snow at one inch. 
But there was enough to build snowmen and roll snowballs in many 
parts of the city, including the campus. 

The snow is reported to have begun falling around 2 a. m,, and 
those who were fortunate enough to have seen it falling said that 
the flurry was beautiful. 

Shouts of delight were heard as usually sleepy-headed young- 
sters discovered the winter wonderland filled with fluffy white 
frosting on trees, houses, and lawns. Telephones everywhere began 
ringing bright and early, with questions to friends such as "Am I 
seeing things?"; to the Weather Bureau, "How long has it been 
since we had a similar snow?" 

The school officials were very sympathetic with the students 
who preferred to remain at home and build snowmen, but they 
scheduled no holiday and could find no reasons for legimately clos- 
ing the schools. 

Enthusiasts, both young and not so young, really had a fling in 
the snow. Snowmen were fashioned, snowball fights staged, and 
even a few sleds were unearthed from storage, dusted off and taken 
outside for rides. 

The beauty of our campus was enhanced by the blanket of snow 
on the moss-hung trees. There was no problem in getting the stu- 
dents out of the dormitory, and many missed breakfast to enjoy the 
snow. Camera bugs were at work, too. Snaps were taken of snow- 
men and their builders, and believe it or not. one or two faculty 
members were caught in the rush. 

College Playhouse Presents 
'Pride And Prejudi 

The play dealt with the lives 
of an unsophisticated English 
family of moderate means. The 
action revolved around the Ben- 
net family with their five daugh- 
ters: Lydia, played by Purcell 
Grant; Jane. Helen Williams: 
Catherine, Jane Morgan; Mary. 
Pearlie Mae Haynes, and Eliza- 
beth, Kay Frances Stripling 

The conflict occurs when Mrs. 
Bennet. played by Dorothy Davis, 
tries to marry each of her 
daughters, who have little for- 
tune, to wealthy young men. Mr. 
Bennet, played by Willie Hamil- 
ton, was the quiet, sedate father 
who sat back quite contentedly. 

The household regained some 
of its calm when two of the girls 
finally become engaged and one 
is married. 

The College Playhouse is un- 
der the direction of John B. 
Clemmons. chairman of the De- 
partment of Mathematics and 

The cast also included Al- 
phonso Arnold, senior chemistry 
major, who played Hill; Yvonne 
O. Hooks, junior English major, 
who portrayed Lady Lucas; Lillie 


A, Powell, senior business educa- 
tion major, as Charlotte; Daniel 
Washington, senior English ma- 
jor, as Mr. Bingley; Pender

jor, as Miss Bingley; Harry

jor, as Mr. Darcy: Robert Tindal,

ior social science major, as Mr,

The students of S.S.C. enjoyed 
a lovable Valentine evening, 
February 14. at the Sweetheart 
Dance held in Willcox Gynmas- 

At the dance each person was 
given a cut Valentine card to be 
matched for a special .sweet- 
heart dance. 

The special Sweetheart Dance 
was led by Alphonso Mclean and 
Mildred Thomas, "Mr and Miss 
Sweetheart," selected by the 
student body. They made a love- 
ly couple, Mildred In a beautiful 
red dress and In a dark 
suit. Other couples danced to 
"My Funny Valentine."

The Periscope shall be con- 
cerned with primarily local and 
national news. Empha.sls has 
been greatly motivated In the 
Improvement of our educational 
.system .since the launching ot 
the satellites. At present, there 
Is legislation pending before 
Congress which Is of valuble 
concern to students, parents, and 

The Periscope would like to 
give some Information as to the 
nature and concern of the pro- 
posed bills. 

The Kisenhower-Ffdsom Pro- 
gram — would provide 10.000 
scholarships a year for expan- 
sion of undergraduate study, to 
be administered by the states; 
average grant, $750; no restric- 
tion on course of study. Also 
grants for expansion of graduate 
.schools up to .$125,000 a year 
tor an institution; a university 
could elect an alternate grant of 
$50n for each graduate fellow, 
with a preference for those In- 
terested in teaching in higher 
education. This bill would also 
provide $150 million for the 
states to expand and Improve 
science and mathematical In- 
struction in public secondary 

The Periscope would like to 
focus the recent violence In the 
New York school system, which 
many Southerners have attrib- 
uted to racial integration in the 
schools. A noted Southern news- 
paperman went to New York to 
.study the situation and deter- 
mine whether or not this was 
the case. His finding: that al- 
though racial Integration exists 
in New York, the violence was 
caused by social and economic 
conditions. Why were so many 
Negroes Involved in these cases 
of violence? Because of the 
economic and social conditions 
under which they live, caused 
by discrimination against them 
as one of the minority groups in 
the sprawling "metropolitan 
melting pot," 

The expulsion of Mlnniejean 
Brown from the Little Rock 
School system comes as no sur- 
prise The die-hard .segregra- 
tlonists have been bellowing loud

other Negro students entered

feels to defeat an innocent child 
who strives only to attain what

Motes From the Editor 

Dear Students; 

Recently I wrote an editorial 
concerning the state of our 
campus. As of yet I have seen 
only one organization attempt 
to do anything about our 
campus. Is this the way for a 
college campus to react to situa- 
tions on the campus? As a mat- 
ter of fact I dare you to do some- 

This Is your paper! The news 
that appears in tthis paper Is 
made by you. Before I took the 
job of editor I was determined 
to edit this paper for you ithe 
students of Savannah State Col- 
lege i Last issue I received two 
letters from students. This is 
what I want, I want you to 
send comments, ideas and criti- 
cisms concerning your news- 

There is one thing you must 
:<now; that whether you know It 
or not this is a newspaper and 
though we are under the au- 
spices of the College we are al- 
lowed to print anything as long 
as it is within the ethical codes 
of the newspaper. This is a chal- 
lenge to you, I dare you 
Sincerely yours, 


Is I ho Ki |)iil>licaii Party Ki si)<ni^il)le 
For IIh' Ciirronl Koccssion? 

By Ted Pollen 

Recently the attention of every thinking American has been 
directed to the state of our national budget and how it affects our 
standards of living. 

The Department of Labor has reported that approximately 
5 000.000 persons are presently unemployed. This constitutes about 
6'-. per cent of our population Such a percentage of unemployment 
can be quite alarming in our present economic structure, and has 
created a recession that is a bit more than "mild." 

The big question that seems to be in everyone's mind is "Is the 
Republican Party responsible for the current recession?" 

We must, first of all. examine the causes and nature of a reces- 
sion. There arc perhaps three maior cycles through which a re- 
cession might pass. Tlie first cycle might be indicated by a period 
of prosperity and rising prices, which is more prevalent today be- 
cause of our extended practice of installment buying. The second 
stage is the inevitable overproduction of goods and commodities 
which am not immediately consumed by the public. Therefore, the 
rumors of excess stocks and heavy losses spread a contagion of cau- 
tion, doubt, and pessimism. Thus the crisis enters the third or 
crisis stage; prices fall to a low level; a general liquidation occurs 
on ihe stock market; and employers lower wages and discharge 

This condition exists for a few months, and if unchecked, will 
result in "depression." 

The United States has undergone at least ten periods of depres- 
sion or panic, several of which cannot be attributed to any political 
regime, because during these periods, the political parties, proper, 
did not exist. 

No one can truthfully say that any particular party. Repub- 
lican or Democrat, lias ever created a recession through faulty leg- 
islative acts. This, liowever. has been tlie accusation of the Demo- 
crats in recent years, and they have used for example the admin- 
istration of Herbert Hoover. 

It is generally accepted when reference is made to the Demo- 
cratic Party as the "war party." and the Republicans as the "de- 
pression party." Now then, with some knowledge of economic cycles, 
we must understand that wars create our greatest amount of eco- 
nomic activity The public enjoys a sudden spurt of prosperity in 
which a false standard of living is gratifyingly consumed. 

It has been the misfortune of the Republican Party to be asso- 
ciated witli our most recent recessions, but isn't it also true that 
the Democrats have always been closely related to tlie causes of re- 

We believe that each era of inflation, recession, and depression 
is merely a product of our bipartisan government. .\s for this cur- 
rent reiessiiin? Heaven knows who is responsible! 

Dear Miss Moore: 

Your spiritual letter (publish- 
ed in the last issue) has proved 
to the older generation that the 
modern generation has not lost 
its spiritual values. It is what I 
consider a perfect example of 
piety which is so necessary for 
our time. We need more of this 
kind of thing. 

Sincerely your. 


Dear Mr. Coverson: 

Your letter has proven to us 
that the students of Savannah 
State College are interested in 
their newspaper. It is true that 
our paper does print news from 
other colleges, and in the past 
organizational news has been 

But can this solely be attrib- 
uted to the staff of your news- 
paper? I say no, because your 
newspaper has a small working 
staff and cannot be expected to 
cover everything. If I'm not 
mistaken every organization has 
a reporter. It is this reporter's 
job to report the news. If these 
persons have been doing their 
job. I am not aware of it. If I 
get the news we will print it. 

As you know this is your paper. 
The policy of this paper is to 
print- We can run a newspaper 
but not when students do not 
write the news.

that the editor prints exactly

staff will cover them." 

Pauline Smith — "No. I don't

enough information about the 
different activities on the 

Melba Miles — "Yes, it seems to 
give information on the most 
important happenings on the 
campus. Why should there be 
any 'big eyes' on a basketball 
game if we lost?" 

Gladys White — "The paper 
doesn't carry enough factual in- 
formation concerning the impor- 
tant events that occur on our 
campus from time to time. I 
really feel that the paper is too 
limited and should be expanded 
with a broader concept of what's 
happening on the campus," 

Lois Parrish— "I think the edi- 
tors do a good job of covering 
the news on the campus. If any- 
one doesn't find enough events 
written up in the paper, that's 
because there isn't that much 
happening on the campus" 

Theresa Grant — "No, the paper 
does not supply us with enough 
news about our campus." 

Richard Fitzgerald — "No. I 
don't know why. but it seems our 
paper doesn't have enough criti- 
cism. All we put in the paper 
are the good things. It seems 
to me our paper should carry 
articles to help the students.

Oi\ CatU'l Teaching 

By Eliata Brown 

"Student teaching has been a 
very rich experience and has 
given me much that could not 
have been learned otherwise." 
stated Robert Merritt, senior 
English major, in an interview 
here last week. 

The field of journalism is the 
area of Merritt's interest. "But 
I think there is niuch to be done 
yet in the teaching profession." 
he stated. 

"There is a great need for Eng- 
lish teachers, especially in Sa- 
vannah." Merritt continued. "I 
feel that the present world sit- 
uation is somewhat putting Eng- 
lish and the otlier humanities 
in the background. However. I 
think that more stress should 
be placed on them, although I 
realize the need lor more teach- 
ers in science and mathematics." 

Should Studenl Pii 
Censored By Tlie 

By Carl H. Roberts 

Freedom of the press is one 
of the basic freedoms which 
members of a democratic so- 
ciety are entitled to. This free- 
dom does not in any way give 
the press the right to make 
statements that are untrue and 
injurious to the integrity of citi- 
zens, but does carry with it the 
right to take a stand on con- 
troversial issues and. in cases 
where evidence has been gath- 
ered which reflects favorably 
on the character of public offi- 
cials, the right to reveal such 
evidence to the public. 

If such an essential freedom 
is to be perpetuated, it must be 
instilled and nurtured in the 
minds of the future leaders of 
the nation. Any attempt on the 
part of faculty members to pre- 
vent the publication of news 
written or gathered by students 
is contrary to the ideals and 
principles of our democratic so- 
ciety and harmful to the devel- 

l)lieali<Mis He 

opmeat of our liiUirt' leaders. 
For such censorship ciiii only in- 
dicate the hypocrisy of (hose 
who preach domocracy hut who 
do not practice the art. 

It is the job of students who 
are engaged in various student 
publications activities to judge 
the collective views and opinions 
of the student body and to make 
known such views, and to pub- 
lish their personal views on mat- 
tors without fear of censorship 
of faculty members. Only In 
this way will they be able to de- 
velop their Ideas without fear 
that they will be suppressed by 
an indignant faculty member 
whose personal point of view 
does not coincide with that of 
the students. 

Unless a code exists by which 
the students have agreed to 
abitle and which states that cer- 
tain news stories arc not to be 
published, any suppression of a 
story by a faculty member Is 
an arbitrary judgment.

New York.— 1( you are a col- 
lege or high school graduate the 
chances are that you are a movto 
fan. according to the Opinion 
Research Corporation of Prince- 
ton. New Jersey. 

It made a survey in every state 
of the Union last June and July 
and couAcs up with these figures: 

Of those 20 years and older 
who attended movies at least 
once a week. coUoro educated 
persons made up 21', ■ of tlie au- 
dience, and high school grud- 
uates comprised 37' ;■. Those wlio 
did not complete high school 
nuuibered 23'.-. The 8th gradeis 
were only 10':;. of the audience. 

Another Indication of the fa- 
vorable status of the movies In 
the public mind Is found In the 
statistics covering Income groups. 
The $7,000 per yt^ar and over 
made up I3'r of the audiences; 
$5,000 to $0,99!>. 20' ,., and the 
$3,000 to $4.t)i)9 Kioup predomi- 
nates with 27';.. Under $3,000 is 

The importance of younger 
people In the vast motion picture 
audience was emphasized dra- 
matically in the survey figures. 

It is, of course, to be expected 
that students are not to utilize 
the various publications to en- 
gage In personal attacks on fac- 
ulty members as Individuals, but 
on matters that are of Interest 
to the students or which In any 
way affect their welfare, It Is 
the duty of the stuff to voice 
their approval or tllsappi-oval. 

Such arc the rights and privi- 
leges which (Iciiiocracy grants to 
the individuals. Such rights are 
precious, therefore let no one — 
faculty members, thoNe with 
vested liilerests, or others — In- 
fringe upon them.

The charts show that 52';;> of the 
typical audience Is under 20 
years of age! The Indications 
are that the teen-ager Is the 
most loyal and ardent of all 
moviegoers. During the period 
of the survey, the weekly attend- 
ance average 54,200,000. Of this 
large audience, G2',;. were regular

Likewise Ihe tVlexiean War j;ave 
the Southerner an ()|)port unity

and to advance his eeununile and

have been the Kt^nt'sls of the vlo-

the English pioneer settled in 
the South with the Idea of es- 
tablishing an aristocracy. With 
large tracts of land, he became 
a large plantation owner with a 
considerable amount of slaves. 
Two things happened which 
strengthened the militant force 
of the South. To protect the so- 
called aristocracy from the Ne- 
gro slaves strong patrols were 
set up to police the area. From 
early childhood the presence of 
Negro slaves gave the slave own-

TV Review 

Itcvicwer: Kay l-'rances Stripling 
Have you ever wondered at 
what point an occupation ceased 
lo be fulfillment of an ambition 
and became an obsession? 

In "Point of No Return." a 
television drama adapted from 
Marc|uard"s novel. Charlton Hes- 
ton. as handsome, ambitious 
Charlie Gray, portrays the role 

of a young man who falls In 
love with a wealthy girl and is 
denied her hand because of his 
financial .standing. 

In revenge, he works and 
studies diligently, establishes a 
family, and finally finds him- 
self competing for vice-presi- 
dency of a prosperous banking 
firm. A return to his old home 
brings memories of his younger 
days and brings him face to face 
with the scene and object of his 
lost love. 

The entire cast contributed to 
an excellent, suspenseful presen- 
tation. The cast included Hope 
Lang. Katherine Bard, Walter 
Abel, and John Williams. The 
dialogue was forceful and the 
photographic effects were good, 

Hope Lang gave an excellent 
performance as the young lost 
love of Charlie Gray— a girl en- 
tirely dominated by her wealthy 
father. Throughout the story 
she portrays a personality torn 
between selt-gratlflcatlon and 
paternal subjection. The pro- 
duction was filled with human 

"Point of No Return" was a 
CBS Playhouse Ninety produc- 
tion, adapted for television by 
Frank Gilroy and directed by 
Franklin Shaffeur. 

A Su^grested List of 
Keligiou?* Readings 

Boegner. Marc. The Prayer of 
the Church Universal. These are 
singularly beautiful meditations 
on our Lord's Prayer— the tie 
that binds Christians of every 
denomination, of every tongue, 
and of every nation— the prayer 
of the Church Universal. The 
meditations upon each passage 
show the thinking of a man who 
has prayerfully considered the 
deepest meaning of the prayer. 
Here is a doorway to a richer 
experience every time the Lord's 
Prayer is said. 

Davis. John Trevor Lord of 
All. These twelve sermons pre- 
sent with persuasive power the 
claims and the gifts of the liv- 
ing Christ — the desire of Christ 
for the unstinted allegiance of 
His followers, and the freely 
given rewards which Christ be- 
stows on those who surrender to 
Him completely. The author is 
speaking to people who already 
consider themselves Christians. 
They go to church on Sunday. 
They are generous when the col- 
lection plate is passed. But, too 
often, they forget Christ in their 
business dealings on Monday and 
in their search for pleasure on 
Tuesday. To these Christians 
Dr, Davies says, "Christ does not 
want our worship one day in 
seven. He will have all or none."

\V1iy >ot Go Into 

By Elzata Brown 

Job opportunities in the field 
of journalism are open today to 
all persons with capability and 

If you were to take time out 
to compare the earlier related 
opportunities with those of to- 
day, you would be astonished 
and amazed over the great in- 

Journalism may include edit- 
ing and other newspaper jobs 
and the writing of columns, or 
other special features either for 
newspapers or magazines. Re- 
poring leads directly into and 
provides the solid basis for most 
of these activities. 

Editing offers opportunities in 
the management of magazines. 
Publishing houses also need the 
services of a variety of editors. 
The editor has a great responsl? 
bility in directing the work of 
many reporters; therefore, he 
should be a past master of the 
reporter's art. 

There is a growing field of op- 
portunity for individuals whu 
prefer publicity and public rela- 
tions work. Colleges, commer- 
cial houses, states, the federal 
government, railroads, banks, 
and organizations have learned 
the value of professional inter- 
pretation of their activities and 

Now is the chance for you who 
have hoped and wished for years 
to become a free-lance writer. If 
you were to dig down in past 
history, you would find that a 
large proportion of the success- 
ful authors of today have ac- 
quired their basic training as 
newspaper reporters The varied 
experience and the constant use 
of succint language form an ex- 
celent basis for literary achieve- 
ment. Many writers build a sub- 
stantial income by serving as 
local or traveling correspondents 
for trade magazines. 

The young reporter frequently 
yearns to be a columnist. And 
there is no reason why he 
should not achieve his goal if 
he has the ability. Most papers 
subscribe to a few syndicated 
columns of famous individuals; 
therefore, the field is narrow and 
highly competitive. Neverthe- 
less, columns are today brewing 
in the minds of young reporters 
which will make the syndicate 
tomorrow through sheer novel- 
ty and reader-appeal- Fortun- 
ately, the syndicates do not have 
an absolute corner of the col- 
umn market.

The program is in its sixth

Radio Station WSAV has a po-

which took note of the program's 
service to the community. 

Dr. Lloyd concluded. "Person-

Ladies, take a look with me at 
the effective measures of the 
""best dressed look." 

For that "Feminine Touch." 
for that most talked about out- 
fit, note the following things; 

1 It's not how many outfits 
you have; It's how you wear 

2. The popular suggestion for 
the girl with the budget is a 
plain two-piece outfit chosen to 
coordinate with a checked shh-t 
and jacket. By far you have six 
outfits within the two. 

3. The scarf, flower, necklace 
and the right shoes with a spark 
of color can do wonders to that 

4. The knowing where to wear 
what is the prize knowledge of 
any best-dressed woman. 

5. Ladies, in taking a look at 
your personal wardrobe— don't 
forget how important it is to be

Wilbert iBossi Maynor, a sen- 
ior, earning the closed nickname 
during his term as president of 
his Fraternity and known as 
"the man with the big horn" in 
the college band is a soft spoken. 
and friendly young man 

Maynor hails from Sylvania, 
Georgia. He strongly believes 
that "he that hath a trade, hath 
also an estate". Because of such 
a belief, and a love the mathe- 
matical world, he has centered 
his concentration around Indus- 
trial Education while matriculat- 
ing at Savannah State College. 

During Maynor's stay at Sa- 
vannah State College his main 
extra-curricular activities have 
been his Fraternity and the col- 
lege band. Of course he has 
been very active in some other 
activities. To justify such, he is

Past President of the Omega Psi

Club. Dormitory Council, Year-

Maynor's hobbies are: Basket-

reading, woodworking, drawing

By Erma Marie Lee 

There used to be a common 
belief that jobs were the pre- 
vailing gap between careers and 
marriage. Some people think 
that if a girl should marry she 
must give up her business life 
and adopt the Idea of being n 
mother, and a wife only. 

In our modern society things 
have changed. A woman now 
spends two-thirds of her time 
working, and the remaining por- 
tion of her time being a nuiture 
woman and a mature wife. 

There are many reasons why 
married women work. The finan- 
cial reason, of course. Is one of 
the greatest reasons. Most woni- 
en think that a pay check Is a 
mighty good thing. 

A "neulywod" may rnnlinue In 
work briMUM- she anil her hus- 
band lUM'd the nuiiu-y ior Ihcir 
new home, or living rvpniscs. .A 
young uilV may lake a juh hv- 
cause in these days the high 
cost of living may not allow them 
to live comfortably. An older 
woman may want lu save money 
for her children's t-ollege edu- 

A girl may work because .she 
enjoys her job. or she may have 
responsibilities that will not al- 
low her to remain at home all 
day "playing cards." Another 
may have adequate training and 
does not want It to go to waste, 
There are a great number of 
women, too, who feel that they 
must help .support their children, 
or they might have the full re- 
sponsibilities of supporting their 
children Then there arc other 
women who will go back to work 
when their children have reach- 
ed the age where they no longer 
need constant care and guidance 
from their mothers. 

Whatever her reason may he 
for working, the married girl has 
the same responsibilities oT Iut 
job as the single girl. In addi- 
tion, she, at time.s, has to work 
harder than the single girl, to 
prove tu her employer that she is 
capable of doing her job well, 
and that she intends to stay on 
the job. 

In combining marriage with 
your career It calls for a little 
self-intuition. You need to be 
strong physically as well as men- 
tally. You need to be able to 
both jobs well. You need have an 
an understanding husband. It is 
also wise to know if your job will 
or will not affect your marriage. 
And last but not least, can you 
undertake the job of being a lov- 
ing wife, a competent mother, 
and a good businesswoman? 

T am not old-fashioned enough 
to believe that a pay check i.s 
more important to men than a 
successful marriage.

Thv Intramural Pnpgram 

By J, Gampbell, Jr. 

Organized last year under the able guidance and direction of 
Coach Richard Washington, the intramural sports program Is prov- 
ing to be one of the most satisfying extra-curricular activities for 
students who do not participate In varsity sports. The need for such 
a program v/as long In evidence and judging by attendance and 
group participation, the current program provides a healthful out- 
let for participants and spectators. 

In the Intramural program as witnes.sed by the current basket- 
ball race, there Is present an element which Is entirely lacking In 
varsity games — the presence of two cheering sections. At a varsity 
game If the home team is losing (which everyone will agree hap- 
pened too often this year> the entire gymnasium Is silent Not so 
In the Intramural-s — for every team has its loyal rooters who don't 
hesitate to cheer. 

Anyone who has not seen one of the intramural games this 
winter has certainly mi.s.sed a pleasant surprise, for much of the 
comic is prevalent, and friendly group rivalry generates an excessive 
amount of excitement. Every team has at least one player whose 
sense of balance and grace seem to vanish the instant he hits the 
floor. After a day of study, the fans find it refreshing to witness 
these players, v/ho when attempting shots, frequently flaunt the 
laws of gravity But Sir Isaac need not fear, for eventually they 
come dov/n to earth, or in this case the floor. 

According to Coach Washington, the current program is prin- 
cipally a Wmter Quarter one, with most teams participating only in 
basketball. A good, solid, year-round program with the addition of 
Softball in the spring and perhaps touch football during the fall 
would be the goal desired. The teams which are currently taking 
part in the basketball program could help towards the realization 
of this goal, if they would field teams and participate with the zeal 
they have shown in the basketball program.

Slioiihl Itrpoi 

Tor (FrainiiKiliral IJsa<>;r? 

By Kay F. Stripling 

"i th()ii|;li(, this was a History cliias, not an English class," 
Phi'nses similar to tliis one have been uttered over and over again 
by cotl('|.'.e students. Students rebul'l' the Idea of having their papers 
(U'adi'd on the basis oT grammar and lorin. 

A student's al)illty to achieve elliclency In any subject Is based 
on his lending and certahily his writing al)iliti(?s. The (college cur- 
riculum includes a muitltude (tf subject matter and English is 
merely one oT such. In English classes are taught the runtianientnls 
of cuuipi'-'^II'lon, Included in this aim is tlie ability to express one's 
self In language that is clear, iiicclse, and accurate, wliether writ- 
ten or oi'ul. 

Is tills instruction and practice to stop In English classes? 

ThrouiOiout all courses thei'c Is a continuous need i'or good 
composition, in science classes students must report their observa- 
tions and experiments concisely. Such reporting necessitates u large 
vocabulary, an understanding of the principles of modification and 
.skills In organizing ideas In a layout coherent pattern. Names and 
dates arc imijortant in history and the incoriect spelling of a pei- 
.son's name or a iilace wlli jiroduce a shifting of thoughts. Regard- 
less of the suljject matter, langiuigc is the medium of communica- 
tion. II nuiy even be considered the basis of creative thouglit. for 
iiow can we reason about scii-ntiflc mathematical or historical con- 
cepts without a vocabulary of adcqimte verbal and non-verbal sym- 
bols. Througli written rejiorts we clarify and refine our concepts 
and abstractions. 

The Instructor has a responsibility of correcting and grading 
such written reports. How should he grade? Should he grade on 
the basis of content or form and grammar? The structure of o 
composition includes spelling, subject-verb agreement, punctuation 
and other factors. Some st\idents seem to feel that they shnvild not 
be penalized fur faulty composition In classes other than English. 
but as long as grammatical errors go unpenalized students will 
continue to ignore correct composition. Through penalizing stu- 
dents for grammatical errors, teachers help tlicm to be more ob- 
servant and concerned with correct composition and consequently 
better papers will be produced. 

Merely because tlie development of langiuige and reading skills 
In our schools and colleges is largely the responsibility of English 
teachers is no excuse for neglect In other courses. Any effort to 
improve learning in science. n\athcmatics. or social science depends 
first of all on how well English fundamentals are learned and prac- 
ticed. Students m\ist continue to read and write well. 

Our success after graduation depends largely on tlie ability to 
write well. For example, a student learned in science or arts may 
write an application for a job. If the letter is poorly written, his 
chances arc few for obtaining the position. 

It is both necessary and beneficial that good English fvmda- 
mentals be Integrated into the total curriculum, and teachers can 
help a great deal by constantly checking the students through 
penalizing faulty grammatical construction. 

President's Message 


Within a few days many young men and women will be partici- 
pating In commencement exercises. When they receive the bache- 
lors degree they will realize one of their most cherished ambitions. 
But even as they receive their diplomas, the world will have changed. 
No candidate for graduation this year will leave college to enter the 
.same world from which he came when he entered as a freshman. 
Both the students and the world have been making rapid changes. 

During the four years in college many have thought of scholar- 
ship primarily in terms of grades which were designated by the first 
two letters of the alphabet. In the last copies of the Dean's List 
and the honor roll posted for seniors, it is thought by many that 
the importance and significance of scholarship have come to an 
end. Some students whose grades were farther down the alphabet 
boasted that no one after graduation would be interested in the 
grades which students made in college since the jobs which students 
would enter after college would not require any special quality of 
.scholarship. To a group that looked forward to careers where push- 
buttons predominated their activity, the rea.sonlng appeared sound. 

The fallaciousness of this concept has been brought to our 
attention In many and various ways. The future of American de- 
mocracy, our Ideals, and our position in the world community is 
intimately linked with scholarship of a high order. Grave responsi- 
bilities are faced by higher education in developing young men and 
young women who are able to solve contemporary and emerging 
problems of the modern world. The criticisms and hysteria which 
have been centered about America's shortages in mathematics and 
the phy.sical sciences represent only one aspect of the scene. The 
shortages clustered about problems in juvenile crime, human rela- 
tions, community development, and international relations are 
equally marked and challenging. The explorations of outer space 
cannot go far unless the problems arising in a large number of 
other areas receive commensurate research and study. Scholarship 
of the undergraduate college and the university will need to be 
extended to industry, society, economic life, and international rela- 
tions at all levels. Many of the same techniques and principles 
employed by students in college must be used to attack the issues 
of today. 

America is fast reaching the point where scholarship is being 
appreciated and rewarded in terms of the standards prevailing in 
other aspects of American life. Recent discoveries now indicate that 
Improvements in all aspects of our culture can go forward to un- 
limited extents. Each generation of scholars from the colleges and 
universities will be expected to work on the frontiers in the areas 
where they have demonstrated their scholarship. It is through the 
continuation of the habits of scliolarship that leadership in the 
many facets of our culture will be provided. Commencement on the 
college campus can no longer mean the cessation of study and 
scientific methods of investigation. The world into which the 
scholars go today will accept with appreciation and generously re- 
ward who continue their high scholarship beyond the Ivy

son. — James Thurber and E. B. 

There is nothing so stupid as 
an educated man. if you get off 
the thing that he is educated 
in —Will Rogers. 


ON JUSTICE— One character- 
istic of our wonderful country is 
its use of the courts of law. If 
a man is arrested and kept over 
twenty-four hours in jail he can 
rely on the writ of habeas corpus 
ad subjiciendum to see if he is 
lawfully held. This is one of the 
many laws to protect the indi- 
vidual from unfair practices by 

On our campus a kind of court 
is set up to pass judgment on 
those individuals who have 
broken the laws of our campus. 
When individuals are punished 
without going before this court 
it is by natural law unfair. It 
is true that an individual should 
not put himself into a situation 
that is questionable, but the 
main issue here is that he has 
the right to appear before the 
standard committee before be- 
ing sent home. 

To by-pass this committee is 
an infringement of personal 
freedom. "Guilty or not guilty" 
is their job to pronounce. 

ON STREETS— The condition 
of our streets on campus has 
improved since President Payne 
made his statement on the con- 
dition of the streets and what 
they can do to cars. Tills proves 
that our college can be improved. 

ON RESPECT — Students still 
cannot see the disrespect they 
give to their school when they 
leave assembly before the Alma 
Mater is completed. We are for- 
getting respect. 

NO ANSWERING one has an- 
swered tlie editorial "SSC The 
Inadequate" written by Kenneth 
B. Alexander (March issue of 
the Tiger's Roar). It seems a.s 
if no one will come to the aid 
of his school. TUFF ain't it (ht- 
erally meaning pathetic). 


By Carl Faison 

When I am depressed by my 

present state of confusion. 
I think back to those golden 

days of my youth. 
My green life was carefree and 

ran freely as a stream 
Whose course had been charted 

by time. 
Each hour was but a minute, and 

each day was but an hour. 

Now that which was white has 
become a subtle grey 

As it moves toward tliat inevi- 
table black — 

Life, which was once crystal, has 
become muddied. 

Beauty is no more — 

Keats and Shelley have become 
mere remnants 

In the recess of a cluttered mind. 

Each breath I breathe is in- 
creasing fear. 

And my burdens are heaped 
upon me 

Like the rays of the noonday 

I pray to my Maker that I be 

made strong 
So that I may again know the 

peace that 
Was mine in the days of gold.

It has observed that the .stu- 
dents here on the campus do 
not support the student govern- 
ment as they should. Several 
students were asked their opin- 
ion as to the rea.son for the non- 
Intercst and support. 

James E, Johnson — "As long 
as the situation doesn't directly 
concern the Individual student, 
they Just dont care." 

Jaunlta Carter— "The students 
wouldn't know they had a Stu- 
dent (Jouncll If they were not in- 
formed because the members of 
the- Council do not function as 
they should." 

Margaret Burney — "The stu- 
dents do not seem to be Inter- 
ested in how our student gov- 
ernment functions; therefore 
they do not support It." 

Josle Simpson — "The students 
do not .support the student gov- 
ernment the purpose and 
functions of the council are of 
no Interest to them unless they 
are Involved." 

Thomas Jones — "I feel that 
.students do not support their 

student government because they 
are not Interested enough. They 
lack information about It and 
as most citizens they take the 
Council for granted." 

Albert Pleasant — "I feel that 
the students lack Information 
about the Council's purposes and 
function-s. resulting In a lack of 
student interest," 

Joseph C. Mitchell— "The stu- 
dents do not support their .stu- 
dent government because the 
Council members are yes mem- 
bers to the administration," 

James Dean — "Because the 
students feel that the student 
government Is not taking care 
of the many problems which 
concern the students," 

Ernestine HIII— "Students are 
not adequately stimulated. In 
order to promote anything peo- 
ple should be made aware of 
what is going on. There should 
be more student participation. 
And how should this be made 
possible? By having frequent 
meetings and by asking the stu- 
dents opinions of prevailing is- 
sues. However, I am quite opti- 
mistic about student government 
ot Savannah State College,"

Drinking On Campus 

lACPt — College students who 
drink did so before college. 

Drinking behavior is "largely 

These were two points uncov- 
ered by two senior sociology ma- 
jors at University of Arkansas. 
ported their findings. 

The students used as their 
definition of a drinker "anyone 
who had a drink of any alcoholic 
beverage during the past six 
weeks." The six weeks before 
the study, no holiday or spe- 
cial school function had oc- 

Other findings: 

•Most parents disapproved of 
their childron's drinking, but 
the majority of students who 
drink have parents who drink 

"The majority of non-drink- 
ers' parents never drink. 

'Students with friends who 
drink were mostly drinkers 
themselves. Those who said none 
or only some friends drink were 
mostly abstainers, 

*There was some correlation 
between frequency of attending 
church and probability of ab- 

*Drunk women were more dis- 
approved by both sexes than 
drunk men. 

•Drinkers have less respect for 
drunks than do non-drinkers. 

•Topping the list of reasons 
for drinking was enjoyment of 
taste. Chief reason for not 
drinking was because it was con- 
trary to religious training. 

*Most popular places for 
drinking were night clubs. Most 
popular drink was beer. 

•Few students felt that the 
strictest possible enforcement of 
rules on student drinking would 
decrease drinking. 

The sociology students con- 
cluded : "The findings should 
not be construed as final or all- 
int'lusive. However, we feel we 
have obtained some useful in- 
formation and some insight into 
the customs and beliefs of col- 
lege students regarding drink- 

Eighty-six students — 38 men 
and 48 women — answered ques- 
tionnaires which were the basis 
of the data. Since men are a 
4-1 majority at the university, 
pointed out the TRAVELER, the 
sample was not representative of 
the total student population. 

Of the group questioned, 42 
drank and 44 did not. But, 
thinks the TRAVELER, it would 
be incorrect to say that 48-3 per 
cent of the university's students 
drink- And no consideration of 
difference of percentage of 
drinking among men and wom- 
en, age groups, amount of drink- 
ing done or other distinctions 
were made, said the newspaper.

self in defiance of destructive 
forces gathered around him. 

A Greek chorus, the Teacher- 
Bird, and Phoenix were the lead-

Choral dances included the awe- 
some "Dance of Forewarning" 
and the joyful "Dance of Jubi-

by Drucilla Moore, danced the 
tlirilling "Whirlwind Dance of 
Creation and Destruction" and 
the soulful "Dance of Aspira-

Members of the Greek Chorus

Hints On Dress 

Fredonia. N. Y. iI.P.i — The 
Social Life Commission at Fre- 
donia Teachers College, State 
University, has established the 
following social standards — in- 
terpretations of social vocabu- 
lary termed as "strictly yours": 

1. The Formal Dance i Class

Girls will wear gowns or cocktail 
dresses; men will wear a tux or 
dinner jacket. A corsage is ex- 

2. The Semi-Formal Dance— 
(Christmas Party. Class dances 
other than informal parties, 
etc, I — Girls will wear cocktail 
dresses or similar "good" dress- 
es: men will wear dark suits, 
and no corsage is expected, 

3. The Informal Dance — (Class 
parties, Sadie Hawkins dance, 
etc. I — Dress is optional accord- 
ing to the occasion. 

Reception lines are expected at 
all Formal and Semi-Formal 
dances. The people who receive 
in the reception lines might be 
chairmen of the event, class of- 
ficers, faculty and honored 
guests. The Social Life Commis- 
sion will also institute for For- 
mal and Semi-Formal dances 
the "dance program." The pro- 
cedure for these programs fol- 

Several days prior to the 
dance, programs will be made 
available for the male half of 
the couple expecting to attend 
the event. He may. by arranging 
with other males (and consent 
of his female guest) fill this card 
of 10 dances to be shared with 
other couples. During the course 
of the evening, these 10 dances 
will be announced at various 
times, and the dances on the 
program shall be so honored. 

Members of the Social Life 
Commission feel that they are

What's New In 

Eve^iinj; Wear 

This is the time of year for 
our Annual Balls given by the 
fraternities on our campus. 

Seen sporting the new "Bal- 
loon" fashion and the "Lamp- 
shade" at the Alpha's Ball were 
Lonnle Culver, Kay Frances But- 
ler and Clementine Patrick. 

Miss Culver was lustrous in a 
green satin "Balloon." which 
was accented with Rhinestone 
straps. Her feet were smartly 
outfitted in glass slippers. 

Miss Butler was truly the 
queen for the nite. She intro- 
duced the newest fashion for the 
season . . . The Lampshade. Her 
dress was white, well fitted at 
the top with a flared skirt. With 
this lovely dress she wore white 
pumps accented with Rhine- 
stone Clips. 

Miss Patrick was quite lovtlv 
in her green and white "B:il 
loon" creation. With her dress 
she used Rhinestone jewelry and 
she also wore glass slippers. 

tions of social vocabulary may 
not necessarily coincide with in- 
terpretations in other places. 
Committee members feel that 
these new procedures will help 
to unite tlie school in a common 
social environment.

"Cast A Speir — Be A Charm 

By Margaret Balchelor Wilson 

Moving in groups as we do I am certain most o( us have heard 
the expre-s^slon "You are a doll." At various times this phrase is 
used loosely, however most people have subconsciously formed a 
cluster of ideas that mold their thinking In determining Just what 
makes her tick. 

The doll Is poised, neat, polite, attractive, a good conversatlon- 
aUst. Intelligent, and engev to please. She appears at ease with 
the world. 

There are people gifted with these assets for the most part 
However, I am inclined to believe that most ot It is attained through 
a gradual process called "work." 

Living and working together with others well In any society 
takes time. Being a "doU" takes time 

We must learn what color or color combinations go best with 
our personality and skin tone. What lipstick or rouge help us smlli- 
best. What dress, suit, skirt or blouse gives us u feeling ot 
There Is always something that is Just right for us. The trouble Is 
finding that something. And so. we must do research on oiu'selves 
and adjust accordingly. 

This theory Is wise and one can profit from It . . . "It Is not 
liow much we have but what we do with whal we luive." 

Reading literature, talking with others, being alert and bi'lng 
a good listener help only when we say to ourselves, "how will this 
help me form the character I wish to be?" 

Charm Is like pcrfunu', the fragrance remains behind us. Let 
us strive to be like Arpcgc'. Joy, or Aphrodlslu . . . Leave a definite 
Impression of loveliness, fascination . . . cast a spell.

Aulliors Give 
Views On 
Ameriran Life 

'ACP) — Two different men 
presented interesting reflections 
of American life as they spoke 
at Brooklyn College recently. 
They were Max Lerner. column- 
ist, author and professor, and 
Jack Kerouac. author of "On the 
Road ' and "The Subterranean."

KINGSMAN reported their 

Lerner covered theories pro- 
nounced in his recent "The 
American Civilizaticn." In his 
attempt to define American civ- 
ilization, he noted its distinct 
quality apart from a European 

"It does not mean," he said, 
"I hat we are superior to Greece 
or Rome, It means, simply, that 
v/e are ourselves." 

He thinks some aspects of 
American society can be ex- 
plained in terms of the "run-

Election Sadness 

(ACP) — Election excitement 
brightened thousands of schools 
across America this past month. 
but Alabama Polytechnic Insti- 
tute in Auburn had a silent elec- 
tion day. 

On election eve. four API stu- 
dents died in what the PLAINS- 
MAN called "the worst auto 
wreck in the history of Auburn." 
Two of the victims were candi- 
dates for student body office. 

All election advertising was 
removed from campus and cam- 
p a i g n i n g ceased. Said the 

"How can we say what we 
feel? We can't . . . Yes, death 
has struck close to home and we 
all wunder . . 

"To walk down the quiet 
streets and past the darkened 
classrooms was to see misty 
gloom caused by swift and vio- 
lent death. Where were the 
signs and posters of an election 
day? Where would be candi- 
dates and workers laughing and 
shouting to students on theii 
way to vote? 

"There could be none of these 

"A torn strip of paper moved 
quietly in the breeze, signaling 
what was once the blatant dis- 
play of a now unknown candi- 
date. A scrap of brightly-col- 
ored paper lay here and another 
there — mute evidence of the 
happiness and action of an elec- 
tion now without life. 

"Life and death were very big 
as you stood there in the early 
morning. And you were very

dollar structure that will be completely air-conditioned and contain 
the latest facilities. 


Construflion Well Advanced for Ne 
Library for Savannah Slat*' (lolleire 

The new library, a one-half million dolLir structure, is rapidly 
taking shape on the moss-laden campus of Savannah State College. 
The location of the library is to be at the main entrance to the 
college. The structure is being built of mat-type face brick in colors 
similar to Richard R. Wright Hall, men's dormitory. 
The construction is under the 

supervision of Rives Worrel. with 
Cletus W- Bergen and William 
P. Beigen, architects. The 
library will include fire-proof 
stair towers, and fire-proof 
walls. It is to be ell shaped 
and completely air-conditioned. 
Other additions are a lounge and 
recreation room for the staff, 
adequate rest rooms for men 
and women, and public tele- 
phones. There will be a receiv- 
ing room through which books 
and supplies will be indexed and 

In line with the latest modern 
library facilities, it will include 
an audio- visual auditorium for 
movies and film demonstrations, 
audio-visual storage, a seminar 
room, textbook and institutional 
material, reading room, music 
room, and a large reading area. 
The east elevation of the library 
will consist of two stories of 
window walls forming the out- 
side wall of the lobby, stack 
room, and balconies. 

President W. K. Payne re- 
cently announced that bids for 
the one million dollar technical 
building will be issued by the 
University Building Authority, 
and that construction on this 
addition should begin within the 
next sixty days. The college will 
soon be a bee-hive of activity, 
with a two and one-half million 
dollar construction program 
taking form.

In observing the food service at Savannah State College, Presi- 
dent William K. Payne revealed that Adams Hall, main dining room 
at Savannah State College, served nearly three hundred thousand 
meals from July 1, 1957 to June 30, 1958, An average of three hun- 
dred and eighty-five people were served at each meal, three times 
dally during the regular term. In addition, an average of ninety

AAC Prepares 
Teaching List 

Edmond, Okla. — (I.P.) — A 

teaching list for college teachers 
and a self-survey handbook are 
being planned by an American 
Association of Colleges for 
Teacher Education committee in 
which Dr. W. Max Chambers, 
president of Central State Col- 
lege, is an officer. 

The teaching list would first 
require a survey of all colleges 
and universities preparing teach- 
ers for higher education. The 
list would be subdivided into va- 
rious fields. The self-survey 
handbook would be a guide for 
administration and faculties to 
project their needs scientifically- 
Financial, housing, curriculum, 
enrollment needs — all would be 
covered by the scientific re- 
search guide- 
It's a national problem need- 
ing a national office, says Dr. 
Chambers. Access to the list by 
AACTE members would mean 
they would have to check only 
the list rather than to visit grad- 
uate schools over the country- 

several state and regional meet- 
ings including the Annual High 
School Trades Conference, 
Dental Society and its auxil- 
iaries, Press Institute. National 
Alumni Association, Alumni 
Banquet, etc. In co-operation 
with the Girl Scouts. Georgia 
Interscholastic As.sociatlon. Can- 
Cer Society and several com- 
munity groups, the College 
.served meals at nominal cost to 
these groups. 

The dining hall serves "A" 
type meals. Mrs. Vametta 
Frazier of Savannah, Georgia, 
has served as Dietitian of the 
dining hall for twenty-eight 

The dining hall serves 7,560 
meals during the regular school 
term and 90 meals for summer 
school. It is well equipped with 
modem facilities such as steam 
tables, and two refrigerators. 

Reach-In type which has one 
unit and the Walk-In type 
which has two units. The type 
of cooling system used is the Air 
Vent, which maintains a normal 
temperature at all times. 

The dining hall consists of two 
storage rooms, one dish room, 
and dish hall, one kitchen, one 
bake room, two laboratories, and 
one Teacher's dining room. It 
can seat approximately five 
hundred persons at one time. 
During meal hours, the dining 
hall furnishes different types of 
music for entertainment. The 
dining hall is used weekly for 
special programs and entertain-

hall are as follows: Richard

look for bargains and special Hales. PracUcally all mc-thodH of com- 
munication carry news of special events which represent barKalns. 
The Idea underlying thl.s continuous search for special consideration 
does not stop with the commercial world. It permeates all aspects 
of our Individual and national life. In our citle.s and communities 
citizens tend to operate on that basis. The serious lack of proper 
recreation facilities, adequate schools, mental and physical health 
facilities, qualified teacher.s and leaders for schools and other forms 
of social groupings represents another side of this picture, Every- 
one wishes to secure these things at a bargain or a sale price. In 
our schools and colleges the Idea Is represented by the tendenc^y 
of students to get by with as little effort as possible. Many enjoy 
talking about the ease with which they pass certain courses and 
the time they save by changing majors and carrying over-loads. 
This tendency to get by with as little us possible has been extended 
too far by too large a numhei- of people. 

An one eonshU-rs Ihe real meanlnK ol this tendciuy, «iic finds 
that thr procedure does nol In any ciise reprcsinl a barnain or 
Having. 'Mie four years which the average hidlviduul has allotlcd 
for a colli'Ki* ethicallon sliould n-|ircscn( niori- (ban the passInK of 
uoursi-H and tin- ainassliiK ol credits. II Is possible thai a student 
may spend bis allotted lime for a liaeralaNreiilr dearer and slill 
leave collcKe less prepared (ban one who never weni to colleKr. If 
the eollcKe education Is supjiosed to help a stiideiil live heller and 
do iK'tter whatever he chooses as Ids voeallon. 11 certainly would 
not he a harKuIn lo wet less, In this respect, tJie eolleHc rdueatlon 
Is very expensive to those wlio derive so iitlli' Krowtli, so little depth, 
so mile iiiiderslandini,', and so little appreciation. 

The iiiiinlpiihillon of cour.scs and iiroKiaiiis for the special reason 
of avoiding problem;! and getting out of college by a specific date 
Invariably leads to higher priced education. The progress made In 
refliieim^nt of measurement, articulation, and precision In the me- 
chanical world must also be applied to the social and cultural 
areas. Accuracy, thoroughness and deflnlteness of planning pro- 
duce excelh'nt results when ai)plled to social and economic prob- 
lems, Students who continue their programs and apply themselves 
diligently hocauso they have a need for tlie subjects usually take 
ndvanUige of a bargain, There Is always a bargain In a college 
education when one's educaUoii and training becomes Increasingly 
Influential In his living. It Is possible for educatonal training to be 
rated as llie biggest bargain In the modern world. It Is through tills 
process tlmt great strides have been made In the Improvement of 
living, the extension of life, and the pursuit of happiness.

Eduentlon an a by-))roduct ol a Utrnite society Is almost always 
placed at the top of Its class. And In order to survive In a literate 
society one must have an education whether It be foimal or In- 
formal. Of the two approai^hes toward an education one Is found 
to be more valuable than the other, This being the case the two 
approaches have been studied and analyzed carefully, taking each 
delicate part and placing It In Its own particular category. From 
the analysis, the rollowlng sunnnatlon has been determined. 

To live el'l'eetlvely h» a modern society one needs that train- 
ing which will enable hini lo aceoniplisli this jiartlcular task. The 
training; Includes what nuitlern man calls a formal education. This 
I'ormal eihicalion will lalic tdni liuouKh the various tleparlnients 
of a school ol lil)eral avis, lien- man l)e(;ins with antiquity, and 
studies the Idens of f;reat men of that era. laUinc everythhif; down 
that may he ol value lo him thai rclales In Ibc oh.jret nr the idea, 
that he would like (o master. I'or lour years or mine he is un- 
disturbed by outside forces ;ind lets nolhin« Ket in his way lo 
reach his idtlmate noal. .Alter this man has eoniplcled his educa- 
tional retiuirenients he is ready to take his place in this literate 
society and to place above all things the value of money. For the 
most part, this man lives his lile oat in ronilort, (bat is he has all 
the material thinfis in life, hut he nds^rs soine(hin« that the man 
with the iiil'ornial education has. 

The man with an informal education docs not go through all 
of the stages that a nuin with a formal edvicatlon goes through. For 
the most part, a man with an informal education does not seek an 
education as such, but with the propinquity of nature and 
mankind, this man has an opportunity to achieve much. The 
phenomenon of the prt)pinqidty of nature is that lad which makes 
this man connoisseur of all his undertakings. Unlike the man with 
the formal education this num does not study the ways of primordial 
man for the sake ol knowing nuire than ills fellowman In order to 
rise above him and look down on him in a condescending manner. 
But. this knowledge which is usually gotten from the book of golden 
rules is supplemented by this man's unceasing quest to understand 
human nature. To do this he begins with nature in its crudest form; 
he tries to understand the ways and actions of the insensate 
creature which God put in this world for him to oversee. Step by 
step he goes through the stages of learning, missing nothing that 
will enable him to understand human nature. One of the greatest 
of all human qualities is that of being philanthrophic. and the only 
way one can accomplish this goal is to do as this man has done. 
Study nature and human nature carefully and try to understand 
its secrets and limitations. The man with an Informal education 
has more opportunities to achieve this quality, because he is closely 
connected with these occurrences in nature and this quality is more 
valuable than any other, and man can achieve this more readily if 
he seeks an education, the informal way. 


SUidciil Opinions 

By Sherman Roberson 

The topic .selected for .student 
comment Is, "Will the addition 
of Savannah State's new library 
and technical huildines in- 
fluence enrollment?" Opinions 
were solicited from various stu- 
dents. These are their reactions: 

Ilattie Burton, junior, major- 
ing In Physical Education states. 
"The addition of two 
vitally-needed buildings to our 
campus will tend to en- 
rollment. The facilities will be 
extended considerably," 

Minnie Ruth Smith, freshman, 
majoring In Elementary Educa- 
tion, .says, "The addition of 
buildings to our fair campus will 
draw more students to Savan- 
nah State, It will also raise the 
status of our beloved school." 

Johnny Harris Is very en- 
thusiastic about our new tech- 
nical building and feels that "to 
the entering students Interested 
In engineering, these added 
facilities .should serve as in- 
spiration " 

Gwendolyn Davis, .senior. 
majoring in General Science 
states that "the addition of the 
technical building might have 
an effect on the enrollment" but 
.she fails to .see where the library 
will have any influence. 

Lonnie Culver, junior, major- 
ing in Business Education, feels 
that. "Enrollment may not be 
Increased, but the students may 
attain better averages due to the 
addition of the new library, be- 
cause of the more materials that 
will be available " 

Mable McPherson, senior, 
majoring in English feels that 
"the addition of the library will 
not Influence enrollment, but 
perhaps it will have an effect on 
scholastic averages. The tech- 
nical program will probably draw 
students interested in science." 

The students seem to have 
varied views as to some of the 
changes that may possibly occur 
as a result of additions to our 
campus. This reporter feels that 
these buildings are much- 
needed, long-awaited facilities.

The recent firing of a V. S. ballistic missile from Cape Canaveral, 
Florida, has presented somewhat of a problem. The nose cone of 
ilie missile contained a mouse. The missile traveled 6,000 statute 
miles from Cape Canaveral and landed near Ascension Island in the 
South Atlantic Ocean. 

This was the first known successful firing of a ballistic weapon 
more than 6,000 miles into outer space and which survived the red 
hot plunge back into the earth's atmosphere. The nose cone of the 
missile has not been recovered as of yet. In London. England, the 
Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said it will pro- 
test to the American Embassy about the mouse being fired into 

The Periscope moves momentarily to Ottawa, Canada, which 
was the work bench for recent talks completed between President 
Elsenhower and Prime Minister John G. Dlefenbaker and other high 
Canadian officials. 

It is indespensible that the highest degree of mutual trust and 
respect exist between the United States and Canada, 

Due to the addition of Alaska as the 49th state, increased 
emphasis should be placed on United States and Canadian relations. 
The United States will touch Canada on the Northwest as well as 
the South and the common border of the two countries will be in- 
creased hy 1,500 miles. 

The long awaited, talked about, summit talks appear to be a 
merry-gc-round of propaganda. Both parties involved have made 
numerous accusations, each accusing the other of delaying these 
talks. This situation appears to be symbolic of a high school dance, 
where the girls are too shy to dance and the fellows are glad of it. 

The Periscope focuses the troubled scene of Lebanon. The 
U. N. observer teams have asserted that President Nasser's United 
Arab Republic has been rendering aid to the rebels. The teams 
reported tliat for the first time arrangements had been made for 
them to travel into the northeastern Lebanese area which is re- 
garded as one of the most likely infiltration routes from U. A. R.'s 
province of Syria. This area is currently controlled by rebel leader 
Sabrl Hamadi. 

The Periscope noted that It has been stated that the recession 
is leveling off, unemployment has decreased, and the hardest blow 
has been felt. Let's hope so, anyway!

Why Do Students Fail? 

By Alfonso Arnold 

Ask a student why he failed 
a particular course and the 
blame is invariably placed upon 
the instructor. While this is not 
always the true picture, many 
teachers do, by their methods, 
assume partial responsibility for 
the student's failure- In many 
cases teachers cannot or do not 
simplify their subject matter- 
However, this does not mean 
that the teacher does not know 
the subject or material but that 
he is unable to bring his instruc- 
tion down to the level of the 

Some students fail because 
they do not have enough time 
to prepare adequately for their 
studies. As to the why of the 
time element, it is often re- 
marked that some teachers seem 
to think that they are the only 
teachers, With this idea preva- 
lent, they thrust upon the stu- 
dent assignments that will con- 
sume four or five hours for that 
particular coruse alone. There 
is an apparent disregard for 
assignments given by other in- 

The foregoing accounts are 
what you hear from the student 
who failed a course. Every fac- 
tor other than himself is blamed. 
While many of the factors out- 
.side himself should be viewed 
with concern, I believe that, gen- 
erally, students fail because of 
the improper utilization of time. 
This is to infer that there is a 
tendency to forsake genuine 
studying until just before the 
final examination. As a result 
there is an all-out endeavor to 
catch up on neglected work by 
staying up all night studying. 
Therefore, when the examining 
hour comes, there is both 
physical and emotional fatigue. 
Indeed, if he had used his brain 
to this extent, his successful out- 
come in the course would have 
been ascertained long before the 
"cramming process"

Your Role as College GracUiale in Your iloiunuinity 

There is no doubt that a large number of us come from rural 
and small communities. However, the size of your community is of 
no major importance. It will in no way cliange what will be ex- 
pected of you as a college graduate. Therefore, persons returning 
to the small communities are just as important as persons return- 
ing to the large communities. 

As a college graduate you will be called upon to perform and 
expected to do many duties that might not be directly related to 
the work you were trained for. You will be invited to join various 
clubs, serve on various committees, explain or give your views on 
controversial topics, organize clubs and any number of other things

Year of Chemise 

This will be known as the 
"Year of the Chemise" (circa 
1958) and Mr, Mort has taken it, 
in all of its many and talented 
variations, and adapted it to 
show how completely and femi- 
nine a silhouette it can be. After 
seeing the latest renditions of 
this new and wonderful theme 
there should be no doubt, even 
among the most stubborn who 
thought they could never wear 
this completely wearable fashion. 

After all. as any owner of a 
Mr, Mort Chemise will state, 
loud and clear, "to wear one Is 
to love one." The eye. the male 
eye in particular, has become 
educated but not without the aid 
of gentle tailoring, meticulous fit 
and dramatic detail. These 
points, thanks to Mr, Mort, have 
made this collection one that's 
appealing and exciting. Take 
yours two piece, one piece, gently 
blouson or starkly simple. Have 
yours in silk, in wool, in crisp 
cotton, in cotton tweed or cotton 

For early morning until late at 
night, dress or casual , . , what- 
ever your desire in the way of a 
chemise, Mr, Mort has the che- 
mise for your figure. This whole 
new group is spirited, young and 
wearable and as always Mr. 
Morfs fashion is the kind of 
good fashion that becomes a way 
of dressing ... not the way of 
a fad.

Home Play for the Pre-School 
Child. June Johnson, Harper and 
Brothers Publishing Company. 
New York- 1957. 

The author's special qualifica- 
tion for writing this book is from 
the results of experience with 
her own children. Her materials 
came from a great deal of study- 
ing and reading, public play- 
ground classes, talking to other 
mothers, and other nursery 
teachers, back yard nursery 
groups, and ideas from the chil- 
dren themselves. 

The author's purpose in the 
book is to recognize the child at 
any age. in any situation, and in 
any mood. Thus she can portray 
the potentialities as well as the 
limitations of each age. 

The book is the result of ex- 
perience with children. The 
ideas for its roots were formed 
several years ago. when their 
needs and requests led over into 
pre-school learning through fun. 
It is to help in using the child's 
ideas, or in developing new ones. 
Each idea in this has been tested 
and approved by experts; the 
pre-schoolers themselves. The 
illustrations were done by the 
children so that you. the reader, 
may know approximately what 
to expect: not the cute, quaint 
products of a grown up imitating 
a four-year-old child, but the 
messy originals of the happy 
young experimenters themselves. 

A child's pre-school years, says 
Robert Burns, are "like the 
snow-falls in the river, a 
moment white, then melts for- 
ever. ' 

If you can learn to look in the 
developing mind of your child 
as a fascinating pageant, he will 
sense the genuine richness of 
his hfe: then you will be able to 

relax and have fun with him 
and all the gay things you do 
will give him true enrichment. 
His creative imagination will 

The child who acquires ade- 
quate rest and wholesome food, 
and who is well disciplined is 
an easy-to-live-with child. His 
happiness improves your atti- 
tude toward him and because of 
that, this might help you, 
"Heaven lies about us in our 

This book is highly recom- 
mended for pre-school teachers 
and mothers, because in this 
book the child is presented with 
such things as creative crafts, 
drawing, modeling mediums and 
designs with paper and paste. 
Crafts give your child a chance 
at self-expression. 

Remember, your child needs 
play space. His job during these 
early years is simply to grow 
like an unfolding flower. His 
creative toys are his tools. 

Psychologists and educators 
feel strongly that nursery ex- 
periences are of vast importance 
in the mental growth and social 
development of the pre-school 

In conclusion, the value of the 
pre-school child In the nursery 
groups, playground classes, 
neighborhood playground 
groups, and in the home will be- 
come more obvious as the time 
goes on. Your child's develop- 
ment will show you how well 
worth the effort is. If your child 
has a difficult time at first, stay 
with lum if necessary, but what- 
ever you do, don't give up. 

The book sets forth the follow- 
ing points: 

1. Don't give too much guid- 

2.Make your remarks general. 

3. Display his work. 


■'Desire Under tlie EIiiih" 

By Yvonne Hooks 
"There's something dark 
prowling in the corners," 
grunted Ephram, And so there 
was , , , in the life of a New 
England family during the 

"Desire Under the Elms." a 
movie based on the play by 
American dramatist Eugene 
O'Neil. tells the story of Anna, 
the 25-year-oId Italian wife of 
76-year-old New England 
farmer, Ephram; his son Eben, 
who falls in love with fiery Ann, 
and their baby whom Anna 
murders to insure Eben's love 
for her, 

Burl Ives, as Ephram, gives an 
impressive performance as the 
stern, gusty Puritan hubsand 
and father, Sophia Loren. 
sultrily plays the part of selfish. 
passoniate spitfire Anna, An-

It seems to me that most

I would Rive the young u\en a

Trinity College 
Maps Plan lor 

Hartford, Conn. — (I.P.) — A 

long-range plan for student as- 
sistants In the dapartment of 
mathematics at Trinity College 
has received substantial support 
from the International Business 
Machines Corp. 

Dr. Dorwart said five assist- 
antships in the department will 
be awarded to sophomores for 
the academic year. 1957-58. Each 
will carry a stipend of $400 for 
the year, either as a tuition 
credit or in cash, and will be 
renewable for the junior and 
senior years if the student's rec- 
ord warrants renewal. 

Each student assistant will be 
expected to devote from 10 to 
12 hours per week to the follow- 
ing projects. 

Some reading of home-work 

papers in the basic mathematics 

Attendance at certain of the 
departmental meetings and par- 
ticipation in the discussions: 

Assistance in blackboard drills 
at sessions for weaker students; 

For seniors, some actual teach- 
ing in freshman sections under 
careful supervision. 

"I anticipate a four-fold re- 
turn from the successful instal- 
lation of the assistantships," Dr. 
Dorwart said. "First, an overall 
increase in the interest of math- 
ematics; second, an increased In- 
terest in the teaching of mathe- 
matics ; third, a growing realiza- 
tion that grants for financial as- 
sistance requiring some work are 
more helpful to the college and 
to the students than outright 
gifts: and fourth, an awareness 
on the part of mathematics de- 
partments in other colleges of 
the need for a definite program 
like this to encourage majors in 
this important field."

learned that objects may possess lenRlh, breadth, and thirkness. 
Later, in our work in algebra, we discovered Diat there were stili 
other dimensions, Kecent discoveries have added to the traditional 
three which we thought to be final. The Theory of Kelalivily, de- 
veloped hy Albert Einstein, points up the fourth dimension — lime. 

In our colleges and universities we find sludcnls of many kinds. 
Some eoneeive of collese primarily in terms of length; the number 
of quarters, or years re(|uired to complete an under-jjraduate 
curriculum. Another group of students sees the college degree pro- 
gram as one providing an extensive variety of experiences. A third 
group looks at college, nol only from the standpoint of the length 
of the college program, and the breadlh ol the progrum. but also 
from the standpoint of the depth ot the learning experience. 

In recent years, olher groups in increasing numbers have ap- 
peared on (he horizon. Individuals in this category combine all the 
otiier groups and add the concepts of lime and space. To this group, 
the college education means the procurement of experlenees thill 
are definite enough to dualify lliem for parllclpaMon in (he space- 
age economy. Such learning goes beyonri ineniori/ali«tn and mere 
reeiill. It is arliculated uitli (he studenCs rfincept oi Ihe present 
and the future constructed by (he sluden(. 

As more anrl nior<' siudeiils beennie aware of both lime and 
effort In relaliciii In llie present and the future, they will he con- 
cerned about (he iiualiiy as well as the (|uantlty of the learning ex- 
periences offered in college. There will he less satisfaction with the 
pursuit of a type ot learning thai is cloudy and confused. Theory 
and abstract learning, along with ihlnking and reasoning, will 
appear concrete and delinlle (o lliose expecting to live successfully. 
Thus inerparation today must consist of many dimensions.

Dear Dr. Griffith: 

I am very happy to report to 
you that Miss Ornabell Dawklns 
has been doing excellent work in 
the clinical laboratory of the 
Henry Phipps Institute. 

Miss Dawkins started work 
here as a technician on January 
20. 1958. She was quick to pick 
up the methods which we use 
and she had reached such a 
degree of proficiency and re- 
liability by July that it was 
possible to trust her with the full 
operation of the laboratory dur- 
ing the vacation of the senior 
medical technician. 

We are very pleased with Miss 
Dawkin's personality and quiet, 
cheerful spirits as well as with 
her every day work.

Dear Student Body: 

1 feel compelled to comment 
about ihe school spirit which is 
being nu^nifested at our college 
this fall. 

I believe that the atmosphere 
which has characterized pep 
rallies, football ganu's a n d 
campus aetivUles in general has 
reflected a kind of school .spirit 
that would be. in the best sense, 
representative of any college 
anyhcre! At times, during my 
previous years at the college, I 
have felt that too many of us 
were lacking In this respect. 

Freshmen, thouyli you have 
been a part of this beloved in- 
stitution only a short while you 
have n\ade known your loyalties 
thro\igh your cheering at games 
and tlu'ough your fervent sing- 
ing of the Alma Mater. 

Fellow Students, I salute you I 

Sincerely yours, 

Julius L. Wilson, MD.. 

The above letter Is typical of 
the type of information that is 
received concerning many of the 
graduates of this Department, 

The 1958-59 school year has 
"gotten off to a good start" in

young men and women to work

Upon relating the conditions 
at home and abroad, the Peri- 
.scope reveal.s that the world is in 
a state of well-known and seem- 
ingly never ending perplexity. 

What does a mean? 
'/'he man on the .street says. "It 
means we Just aren't getting 
anywhere Hke this." Let us .stop 
and talk about It. Let's talk 
aljout Lebanon and Jordan, the 
Middle East and Formosa, Let's 
talk about Quemoy and Matsu. 
'l'h(- Communists have 
tried by force to drive Nation- 
alists from Quemoy and Matsu 
'I heir purpose Is to gain control 
of Formosa. They have tried 
(.^uns, and hard shell artillery, 
but It didn't bring about defeat. 
Now they are trying sweet talk 
and .sugar coated promises. Let 
us hope that Generalissimo 
Chiang Kai-shek and Peng Teh- 
hual, MInl.ster of National De- 
fense for Communist China, will 
be able to come to an agreement 
which will give the free world 
peaceful relief. 


Less than a year after the 
United States sent its first 
satellite hurling Into space, an 
attempt was made to shoot a 
rocket to a predetermined height 
never before achieved. The 
rocket reached a height of 79.212 
miles. The rocket's destination 
was the moon. The Pioneer i the 
name given to this space 
traveler) came within a third of 
the distance, and stayed up for 
43 hours. The rocket was de- 
signed to reach within 50,000 
miles of the moon. In this it 
failed, but ole Pioneer set a 
pi'ccedent that may someday be 
followed by manned air flight 
to the moon. 


"Jesse" James Hoffa rides 
again! This time the posse is led 
by Sheriff George Meany. 
Meany's aim Is to drive Hoffa off 
the labor range. Hoffa. head of 
the International Brotherhood of 
Teamsters, is trying to create 
labor pacts throughout the na- 
tion. If he is successful, this will 
make him a giant figure in 
organized labor. 


Will "Have lesson. Will learn" 
replace our favorite TV programs 
in the near future? The Ford 
Foundation Is running a series 
of experiments regarding educa- 
tional teaching programs on 
television. If this experiment is 
successful, bright students will 
be able to exhaust their abilities 
and skills by supplementing 
their regular classroom courses. 
This will also mean that the best 
instructors will be available to 
millions of students. 

"Once he belonged to us, . , ." 
This tliought must have run 
through the minds of five hun- 
dred million Catholics and 
millions of other people as they 
paid their respect to the holy 
remains of Pope Pius XII in St. 
Peter's Basilica. 

Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Gio- 
vanni Pacelli. 82-year-old high 
priest, is now resting with his 
260 predecessors. He was a holy 
man. a political Pope. He was 
brilliant, majestic and awesome. 
This great man will long be 
remembered, Yes, once he be- 
longed to us. . . "Now he be- 
longs to the ages."

The crowd was going wild . . . 
the player fell a few yards from 
the goal hne. As he fell he 
tapped the ball only about three 
feet from the ground. It was at 
this point that Ulysses Stanley 
swooped the ball up and ran for 
a touchdown. And so it shall go 
down in Savannah State College 
football history as a spectacular 
play— and Stanley's name shall 
be associated with it. 

Stanley, a native of Dublin, 
Georgia, is a graduate of Oconee 
High School. He is a senior 
majoring in Physical Education. 
This young man, noted for his 
neatness In dress, looks as if he 
stepped "right out of Esquire" 
even when he wears "blue jeans." 
Stan's taste in music runs from 
Debussy to Dakota Staton. 

Stanley has a sophisticated air. 
Yet there is a ruggedness about 
him that makes him quite ap- 

His hobbies are cards, Deloris, 
dancing, music, Deloris, sports 
and Deloris. 

Presently his great desire is 
to become a Physical Therapist. 
This writer is happy to add 
Ulysses Stanley to the list of 
Spotlight Subjects. 

Pootrv Consultant, 
Frost, Interviewed 

By James Nevels 
Robert Frost, internationally 
famous poet who is the Poetry 
Consultant at the Library of 
Congress, was interviewed at a 
news conference. Mr. Frost gave 
his views on modern poetry and 
separated it into two classes. 
According to Frost the first class 
consists of that poetry which is 
obscure, abstract and incompre- 
hensive. . , . "This type." says 
Mr, Frost, "is born dead." The 
second type of modern poetry in- 
cludes that which is written in 
intelligible, clear, simple, easy- 
to - read, easy - to - understand 
language. This type is being 
written Mr, Frost concluded. 

Some of this famed author's 
works are "Stopping by Woods 
On A Snowy Evening. " "Home 
Burial," "A Lone Striker," "The 
Death of the Hired Man" and 
"After Apple Picking."

Freshmen, here are some 
hints concerning wardrobes from 
upperciassmen to calm your 
jitters, if you have any. 

What style should you wear 
now that you are in college? How 
large should your clothes budget 
be? I have assembled these 
wardrobe hints given by many 

COATS : "This will be your 
biggest item." says Gwendolyn 
Riggs, a 19-year-old sophomore 
who hails from Savannah, Geor- 
gia. And versatility is the word 
to describe it, Gwendolyn sug- 
gests double breasted coat in 
natural or dyed darker shades. 
"I dress mine up with a hat and 
it's fine for church or parties," 
she says. 

A basic tweed or black coat is 
Nellie Shellman's choice. Nellie, 
a 20-year-otd junior, is buying 
a black coat for herself this fall 
SEPARATES: "Keep the num- 
ber down to a bare minimum, 
says Minnie I'iuth Smith, an 18- 
year-old transfer student from 
Howard University, who remem- 
bers the size of her dormitory 
closet. And "Don't throw out 
your high school sweaters and 
skirts," says Pauline Jordan, 
another sophomore. "Remember 
no one else has seen them." 

For additions to your sports- 
wear, "buy a blanket plaid skirt 
with matching top." says Caro- 
lyn Stafford, who predicts she'll 
see lots of bold bright outfits in 
Savannah State's halls. 

Bulky knit sweaters worn with 
jumpers in chemise or empire 
styles are the favorites of Kay 
P. Hamilton, a 21-year-old 

There's less enthusiasm about 
the new mohair knits. "One for 
novelty is all you'll need." Mar- 
garet Burney, a 22-year-old 
senior, has stated. 

On campus. Juanita Baker, a 
21-year-old senior, predicts she'll 
see lots of tapered slacks and 
crew neck sweaters. For those 
who Uke the unusual or are un- 
comfortable in wool, there's 
wide-wale corduroy, a heavy, 
durable material back this fall. 
DRESSES — WOOL; "This is 
the college fabric for casual as 
well as dressy wear," says Eldora 
Manning, a junior who's 21. 

"The empire, of all the new 
styles, is most flattering to the 
figure and dressiest as well." 
adds Gwendolyn Davis, who'll 
wear her new empires to fra- 
ternity parties this fall. 

Most of the young ladies prefer 
classic sheaths and full-skirted 
styles, but recommend the new 
fall colors: benedictine orange, 
taupe, and moss green. One 
trasitional cotton, perhaps a 
paisley print, is a must for they 
are wary of our Indian Summer 
weather at times.
