"A voteless people is a hope- 
less people," This slogan was 
adopted by Alpha Phi Alpha 
Fraternity, Incorporated, 22 
years ago and is more apparent 
today than at any time since 
our emancipation. 

Delta Eta Chapter of Alpha 
Phi Alpha Fraternity. Incor- 
porated, recognizes that a 
fundamental step in the march 
to "firstclass citizenship" is the 
registration and awareness of 
the obligation to vote, of all 
eligible persons and especially

better understanding between 
the U. S. and Latin American 
countries. He also emphasized 
that Cuba would never be over- 
come by communistic influences.

Howard Jason 
Delivers Address 

By Marvin L, Green 

Mr. Howard Jason delivered 
the principal address during the 
regular all-college assembly on 
October 22. at 12 noon in 
Meldrim Auditorium. 

Mr. Jason, instructor in the 
Department of Languages and 
Literature, chose as his thesis: 
"Imagination," He stated that 
whatever we do, we may need a 
number of qualities, but we must 
have imagination, "the power 
which enables a woman to take 
a scrap of cloth, a bit of wire, 
and malie a hat out of them." 

He set forth that the imagina- 
tion when used without control 
can cause one to waste away 
one's time in day dreaming, and 
also that a lack of imagination 
may be equally harmful. 

The introduction of the 
speaker was made by Eddie 
Bryant; closing remarks, by 
President William K, Payne.

William K. Payne as its speaker. 
President Payne selected as

Mirror." According to President 
Payne, ". , . the value of a 
mirror lies within what the 
mirror reflects." He requested 
that the students of Savannah

you look onto your personal 
mirrors, it is hoped that you will 
draw the picture of a successful

The Editor Speaks 

Editor's Note: This editorial does not necessarily repre- 
sent the views of the Faculty, Administration or Student 
Body of Savannah State College. 

The past summer proved to be the most interesting period of 
my entire life. I attended the National Congress of the United 
States National Student Association at the University of Illinois, 
Urbana. Illinois. 

The congress was attended by students representing various 
colleges and universities throughout the United States. Upon my 
arrival there. I had no vision of the variety of events that were 
to occur. These events had a marked effect upon my evaluation of 
my fellow men. 

This congress Is paralleled with the procedure of the United States 
Congress. This first three days of the congress was given to dis- 
cussion groups with various topics of interest. I was enrolled in 
the discussion group concerned with Desegregation. The group was 
composed of six students and a moderator. One of the participants 
was from North Carolina and stated that he shared a moderate 
view of the subject of integration. He set forth that his purpose 
for registering in this particular group was the fact that integration 
was inevitable and he desired ways of bringing it about smoothly. 

As the discussion progressed, a strange incident occurred. He 
came to the realization that the other views present were quite 
liberal. From this point on. the moderator's view became rather 

The second day of discussion gave rise to many surprises 
The size of the group increased tremendously. Two of the new 
participants were from South Carolina and shared the most con- 
servative views concerning integration that I have ever entertained. 
These individuals presented a number of analogies supp-orting their 
views (negative) on the integration question. Of times I was guilty 
of employing unpractical tactics by attacking these analogies very 
violently. Mine was a normal reaction, for never before had I the 
chance to discuss this topic with a member of the "majority." 
I attribute this fault to the isolation that is ever prevalent between 
members of the various "races." 

One of the prime reasons for the anti-integration campaign 
by my Caucasian brothers was their "Rationalization On Sex." 
With the help of some other Caucasian brothers I was able to 
suppress this rationale. (At least from the discussion.) 

Communication breeds understanding in abundance, I share 
a great deal of respect for my brothers from Carolina, however, 
I submit no allegiance to their conservative views. The discussiori 
of the various views may or may not have converted their opinion 
of me or mine of them, but the important factor is that members 
of different "races" were sitting down at a table of "arbitration"' 
and discussing a problem which is affecting the lives of every 
individual in the United States. 

If the problems of the South are to be solved, then a system 
of race commuications (on an equal basis) must be established. If 
the United States is to remain United, then this system must be 
established and God speed! 

I feel that the students should have more to say about what 
affects them. The congressman does not necessarily reflect the 
views of the mass of people in the South and especially not the 
majority of the students. Adults, if we the students of today are 
to take the reins of the world of tomorrow, then let us "taste" 
this task now! Let us do our own thinking and you "advise" 
when necessary. 

During the duration of the discussions, it was interesting to 
note that my brothers sought and in many cases found sup- 
pressions of human rights in the North. This was supplied as 
rationale to "justify" the South's defiance of BROWN vs BOARD 
OF EDUCATION during the student congress. 

Upon leaving the congress, I left with many thoughts of a 
variea nature. But these were not thoughts of hate, but thoughts 
of thanks and understanding for such a valuable experience. 

My Kind of Democracy 

By Leford Tobias, Jr. 
All too often today we tend to 
forget the great moral heritage 
which is ours. The bustle of 
everyday life, the everyday 
chores, the demands of our jobs 
— all these becloud our vision, 
America needs a rededication to 
those moral values which guided 
our forefathers. These are the 
guldeposts by which we should 
chart our course. 

Today the nation is being at- 
tacked by a dangerous enemy — 
communism- The Communists 
seeks to destory our way of life. 
They would tear down the free 
government and establish a 
Soviet State. Our historic 
liberties would be wiped away. 
Instead of law we would be 
ruled by a fascist dictator. The 
concentration camp, the secret 
arrests, the purge trial would be 
the hallmarks of everyday life. 
Our destiny would be in the 
hands of a small clique from 
whose decisions there would be 
no appeal. 

This is the danger we face to- 
day. Communism is an evil. It is 
atheistic. It bitterly hates all 
religions. The Communists de- 
test men who live by the princi- 
ples of fair play, justice, and 
brotherhood. To Communists. 
love is a sign of weakness. Only 
brute force, ruthlessly applied, 
has any meaning. 

To meet the Communist 
challenge, we in America must 
rely on the great moral heritage 
which is ours. We need to know 
more about the history of our 
nation. We need to appreciate 
the courage of the individuals 
who fought through wilderness, 
swamp, and mountain for the 
ideals in which they believed. 
We need to know the valor of 
the men of 1776. Our citizens 
should read and re-read the his- 
toric documents of America, such 
as the Constitution and the 
Declaration of Independence 
whose famous passage , , , "We 
hold these truths to be self- 
evident that all men are created 
equal" , . . has lived in the hearts 
of men who gave their lives that 
this country might remain free 
and independent. 

The Periscope Despite ISature's Ways

Looking Bach 

Points to Ponder 

Albert Schweitzer in "Memories 
of Childhood and Youth": 

No one has a right to say to 
another: "Because we belong to 
each other as we do, I have a 
right to know all your thoughts." 
Not even a mother may treat 
her child in that way. All de- 
mands of this sort are foolish 
and unwholesome. In this 
matter, giving is the only valu- 
able process; it is only giving 
that stimulates. Impart as much 
as you can of your spiritual be- 
ing to those who are on the road 
with you, and accept as some- 
thing precious what comes back 
to you from them.

John Foster Dulles: 

It is my experience that those 
who are most positive about 
political problems are able to 
be positive only because they do 
not know all the relevant facts. 
Those who are most harsh in 
their judgments are able to be 
harsh for that same reason. 
When the whole of a problem is 
known, solutions become ex- 
cessively difficult and judgments 
are not easily made.

Hope, they say, deserts us at 
no period of our existence. From 
first to last, and in the face of 
smarting disillusions, we con- 
tinue to expect good fortune, 
better health and better con- 
duct, and that so confidently 
that we judge it needless to 
deserve them,

The recent visit by Soviet 
leader Nikita S. Krushchev 
might help ease the cold war 
tension which has faced the 
world for over a decade. How- 
ever, Mr, "K" still holds his 
viewpoint that communism will 
bury capitalism. Not literally, 
but in the sense that com- 
munism will overtake the ac- 
complishments of capitalism and 
push it off the globe. According 
to the dictator of over 200 
million people, the Capitalistic 
system is reaching the point of 
diminishing returns and when 
the system can no longer employ 
the people, the workers will rise 
and overthrow the system. 

What Krushchev thinks about 
capitalism and what we think 
about communism do not alter 
the fact that these two leading 
systems in world affairs must 
find a way to exist peacefully 
together on the same planet. 
According to the Soviet leader. 
■T speak of co-existence, not be- 
cause I want capitalism to exist, 
but because . , , it does exist." 
"It does exist" are the words 
that both systems must recog- 
nize and respect. Our President 
Eisenhower must recognize this 
fact when he visits Russia when 
the cold spell is over and things 
are green again. 

One Hiding Place 

Cuba's Prime Minister Fidel 
Castro, eight months after 
liberating Cuba from the Batista 
regime, seems to be approaching 
the same "pandora's box" that 
closed in on his conquered foe. 
Castro has constantly boasted of 
a democratic Cuba, a land of 
free people, but the two overt 
expressions of freedom are miss- 
ing, freedom of the press and 
open elections. 

As head of a disorganized gov- 
ernment supplemented by chaos 
and confusion, Cuba is well ap- 
proaching a police state type 
government. Anyone speaking 
out for private rights is doomed 
to the fate afforded all counter- 

In any event, the Sierra 
Maestra will welcome its long 
adopted companion. That is If 
he can escape in time.

A recent incident occurred on 
this campus which I feel merits 
the consideration of Mr. John 
Q. Student. 

This incident occurred be- 
tween two factions, which here- 
after I shall refer to as faction 
A and faction B. 

Faction A returned to school 
and began preparation for its 
annual activity. Things seemed 
to have been going very smooth- 
ly. But a few days before regis- 
tration, a demon by the name 
of Confusion stuck his dirty 
head into the picture and the 
sparks began to fly. 

Faction B, due to circum- 
stances beyond its control, had 
ceased its "catering" to faction 
A. Well, faction A got hot- 
headed and decided to follow the 
example of the steel workers in 
order to get its ends. 

A period of contemplation. Ill- 
feeling and misunderstanding 
existed between factions A and 
B for the next few days due to 
the lack of communication. 

After three days, faction B got 
the word (by way of the grape 
vine) on faction A, Faction B 
immediately arranged a confer- 
ence with faction A and other 
parties involved. I was present 
as an Impartial observer (if this 
is possible). 

My evaluation of the entire 
situation Is as follows: 

(1) First of all faction B had 
"catered" to faction A, this 
"catering" was taken for 

(2) After faction B was forced 
to cease "catering," it is only 
fair that faction A should have 
been notified, 

(3) Faction B should have 
been informed of the feelings of 
faction A by one of its repre- 
sentatives, before the latter re- 
sorted to the methods of the 
steel workers. 

(41 Faction A was too re- 
luctant in airing its views at the 
conference. I am glad no little 
girl came into the room and said 
"boo" because faction A might 
have died of fright. 

This incident which I am sub- 
mitting for your consideration, 
Mr. John Q. Student, is a perfect 
example of what happens when 
people fail to assume their 
responsibility to other persons 
and when other persons refuse 
to speak up and stand on their 
own two feet. This further ex- 
hibits what can happen if a 
system of communication does 
not exist between two factions. 
A system where everyone in- 
volved may speak freely and 
bluntly without fear of later em- 
barrassment or punishment- My 
advice to factions A and B is 
"to get on the ball" despite 
Nature's Ways.

Classic Italian Style for 
Fall "59 

By Alphonso McLean 

This fall the Continental- 
versus-Ivy controversy continues 
on Fifth Avenue and on the Col- 
lege Campuses around the coun- 
try. The well dressed men of 
this country will continue to 
favor Ivy because of the casual 
and day-to-day wear. In the 
area of definition one might 
wonder just what is Continental? 
In its most classic manifesta- 
tion. Continental is definitely 
Italianate. It is characterized 
by the concept that clothes 
should fit the body just as gloves 
fit the hand. Sport jackets are 
short, and fitted to the point. 
Sleeves are slender and tapered, 
lapels are narrow, tapered almost 
to snugness and detailed to show 
the correctness of the attire. 
Trousers, too. are extremly 
narrow, tapered to detail: the 
slacks are cuffless, pleatless. 
with slash pockets rather than 
side pockets. Jackets can be 
three as well as two-button. 

The word Continental, of 
course, does not apply solely to 
suits and sport jackets. The ac- 
cessories with your Ivy outfits 
will do in company with the 
Continental styling. Shoes are 
thinner, more flexible; shirts 
have more form-fitting and 
narrower sleeves. Ties should be 
narrow and short enough so the 
ends don't protrude from the 
cutaway, sport jackets. 

For casual and rough-weather 
wear are the high and sturdy 
boots. The boot takes a big step 
forward this fall. The introduc- 
tion of the Continental suit and 
slacks, whose cuffless trousers 
tend to snag in standard-high 
shoe tops, shows that elegance 
can now be included with casual 

Now there are casual boot 
creations for sport, city wear on 
these rainy autumn days and 
cold winter nights on campus. 
So if in the past those unattrac- 
tive overshoes have bugged you. 
now's the time to look correct, 
as well as one of the advanced 
men of style on your campus set. 
Continental designs are not 
only tailored to perfection but 
are also narrow on the pocket- 
book. The Classic Continental 
suit 'Which includes a reversible 
vest), ranges from $45 to $70. 
The Modified Continental ranges 
from S39.95 to $60 and the 
American Continental from $65 
to $110. 

Well this fall there is a radical 
change in men's attire. Men of 
Savannah State College, are you 
up-to-date with this fall's 
styles? The distinction of Con- 
tinental captures and character- 
izes a typical college man over 
the average dressed man. As for 
me, I've catered to Continental 
and really dig it. 

To those personalities who 
thrive somewhat as daring in 
dress to varying degrees, I chal- 
lenge you to accept this new 
concept in clothing and be a 
classic on your campus this fall.

western University sociologist, 
knows why 50 young husbands 
and wives did and the results 
of his eight-year study of them 
are reported by Morton M. Hunt 
in a November Reader's Digest 
article. "How Do We Choose A 

According to Professor Winch's 
evidence, the love of man for 
woman and woman for man is 
basically self-serving ; its pri- 
mary purpose is to benefit the 
lover, not the beloved. 

Each of us, he says, tends to 
fall in love with someone whose 
personality is the complement 
of our own and through whom 
we can therefore relieve our own 
frustrations and vicariously live 
out our impossible wishes. A 
tough, brusque, hard-driving 
man may long in secret to be 
a cared-for child again. 

He cannot do this, so he falls 
in love with a timid, frail girl 
whom he enjoys sheltering— and 
through whom, by proxy, he en- 
joys that would-be other self. 
She. meanwhile, has always 
yearned to be more aggressive 
and competent, and because she 
identifies her life with his, she 
indirectly achieves her wish. So 
each benefits and fulfills the 
other — and so love, though 
selfish in its origin, succeeds in 
becoming a mutual blessing. 

Profe.ssor Winch believes this 
dovetailing of psychological 
needs to be the essential reason 
for love and a far stronger force 
than sexual desire, beauty, or 
;umilarity of tastes. These needs 
change as boys and girls go to 
work or to college. 

The Northwestern professor is 
48, married and has written a

SSC and Morris Battle to 8-8 Tie 

By Jolly Stephens 

College presidents and football 
coaches are primarily responsible 
for the violations of athlete re- 
cruiting rules which are giving 
big time college football "a sour 
reputation," says Don Faurot, 
now University of Missouri di- 
rector of athletics, after years of 

His views are given in the No- 
vember Reader's Digest in a 
signed article, "Is College Foot- 
ball Destroying Itself?" con- 
densed from the Saturday Eve- 
ning Post. 

"When a college corrupts an 
athlete by paying him under the 
table," says Faurot, "you can be 

pretty sure that the coach not 
only knows about it but prob- 
ably instigated it. . . . As for 
college presidents, some have 
been coerced into putting up 
with dishonesty, some have 
winked at it, some have been 
too naive to know what is 
happening. , . ." 

Faurot feels it imperative that 
everyone concerned with college 
football acknowledge the abuses 
and take corrective action. 

"First of all," he writes, "edu- 
cators must enforce the rules 
governing college athletics. 
Simply refusing to schedule 
teams which operate outside the

three years in a row. 

rules would quickly whip into 
line those colleges which now 
value winning football teams 
above honesty. . . . 

"School administrators must 
make it clear to their coaches 
that they place integrity ahead 
of victory: that no amount of 
alumni pressure after a losing 
season will affect the coach's 
job. whereas under-the-table aid 
to athletes will get him fired. 
I'm still idealist enough not to 
see much difference between 
paying a boy under the table to 
win for you and having some 
gambler pay him to lose."

Wife reading evening paper to 
half-asleep husband: "Here's an 
interesting item about a married 
couple — they went to a dance." 

The Savannah State College 
Tigers and the Morris College 
Hornets played a tremendous de- 
fensive game, on a soaking wet 
field, as they tied 8-8. This was 
the first conference game for 
both teams. Over a period of 
five years these two teams have 
won two each and tied one. 

During the early minutes of 
the first quarter, James Davis 
of SSC blocked a kick on their 
own 22 yard strip. But the SSC 
offensive could not move the 
ball any further than the 16 
yard line; so Morris took over 
on downs. The Hornets moved 
the ball to their 40 yard line 
before they were forced to kick. 

But again their kick was 
blocked, this time by Elizah Mc- 
Graw. On the next play SSC's 
John Owens carried the ball to 
the Morris 22 yard line ; then 
James Davis, in fullback po- 
sition, passed the ball to end 
McGraw in the end zone for a 
SSC touchdown. The point after 
touchdown was good when Davis 
passed to Lawrence Williams in 
the flat. The first quarter ended 
with SSC 8, Morris 0. 

In the second quarter SSC had 
a substantial drive from their 
28 yard line to the Morris 30 
before Morris took over on 
downs. But on the next play 
Hossis of SSC intercepted a 
Morris pass on the 35 yard line 
and galloped to the 25.

Freshman''s Outlook 

Several freshmen were inter- 
viewed by reporters of the 
Tiger's Roar staff in order to 
obtain a random sample of views 
and evaluations of Savannah 
State College held by the newest 
members of the Savannah State 
College Family- The following 
are the views of Savannah 
State College as the Freshmen 
see it. 

Carrie Louise Guitor, Savan- 
nahian, who plans to major in 
Biology. "The instructors aren't 
as rigid as was expected. This 
fact relieved some of the tension 
that had accumulated before 
entering SSC. The majority of 
the upperclassmen seem to be 
very friendly nnd understand- 
ing. They make one feel as if 
he has always been a part of 
the SSC family. College life is 
not the 'headache' I expected. 
I'm looking forward to a long 
happy stay. " 

Otis Mitchell. Savanahian, who 
plans to major in Biology. "Sa- 
vannah State College is a very 
wonderful college, serving its 
purpose. It couldn't be any 
better: here you get a chance to 
meet a lot of people. I have no 
dislike for the school or its per- 
sonnel. We have a well prepared 
faculty and staff. College to me 
is like a foreign country; you 
are forever learning things." 

Harvey Bryant, a native of 
Woodbine. Georgia, and gradu- 
ate of Ralph J. Bunche High 
School, When asked to comment 
on orientation week, Bryant 
stated. "I think orientation week 
gave the students a cliance to 
gain helpful information and 
meet fellow freshmen." 

Marjorie Dalida commented 
that "the College Campus is very 
beautiful and interesting." 

Clinton Robinson, a graduate 
of Alfred E. Beach High School, 
described the campus as very 

Eunice Veal stated that the 
orientation week activities were 
helpful in acquainting her with 
the new surroundings. 

Leomia Pinkney, a business 
major and graduate of Alfred 
E. Beach High School, stated. "I 
like the College very much and 
feel that orientation week helps 
in adjusting to college life." 

Eddie Mae Polk hails from 
Statesboro. Ga. "She thinks the 
SSC campus is the most." 

Alvin Jones, a graduate of St. 
Pius High School, considers the 
Savannah State College one of 
the best in the state.

Dr. Paul L. Taylor Delivers Honor's 
Day Address in Meldrini Auditorium 

The annual Honor's Day chapel program was held on Thurs- 
day, November 19, 1959, at 12 o'clock noon in Meldrim 'Auditorium 
with Dr. Paul L. Taylor 
Savannah State College, 

Director of Testing and Guidance at 

According to Dr. Taylor, the 
value of anything depends upon 
its use and not the thing itself. 
For anything that is not used 
is soon lost by its owner. Dr. 
Taylor stated that all life is a 
climb and we get out of life what 
we deserve rather than what we 

"Some of us fail in our climb 
for success because of over con- 
fidence," and therefore accord- 
ing to Dr. Taylor, the greatest 
of care should be employed when 
an inventory is taken of one's 

Dr. Taylor set forth that if 
today's student desires success, 
then religion is a necessity. "Put 
your hand in God's hand and he 
will say surely I will be with 
you." If you only believe "Ye 
shall achieve " go get a hold of 
yourself and say "I can." 

Recognition was given to the 
following persons for having 
earned the average of "B" or 

above on a full load during three

Village Players 
Perform at SSC 

The Village Players were seen 
at Savannah State College in 
Meldrim Auditorium on Tues- 
day, November 24 in two one-act 
comedies, t^he Proposal," based 
on a play by Anton Chekhov and 
"A Village Wooing" by George 
Bernard Shaw. This event was 
under the auspices of the Col- 
lege Luceum Committee. Dr. 
Coleridge A. Braithwaite. chair- 
man of the Department of Fine 
Arts, is the director of the col- 
lege lyceum programs. 

"A Village Wooing" might be 
called a battle of the sexes, in 
which the male is doomed to de- 
feat. The play occurred in three 
scenes, the first set on board 
a pleasure ship and the remain- 
ing two in an English Village 
store. The players depicted an 
account of a very unusual 
"wooing." The period costumes 
of 1910 added flavor and charm 
to the production. 

"The Proposal," like Shaw's 
play, concerned itself with a 
wooing, but one of a very differ- 
ent nature. The setting was on 
a farm in the Midwestern United 
States, "The Proposal" gave an 
account of "the course of true

Pertinent Faets Coneerning the 
National Stndent Loan Proojram 

The purpose of this article is to acquaint the students of Sa- 
vannah State College with pertinent facts concerning the National 
Defense Education Act of 1958. 

The National Defense Student Loan program was established 
by the 85th Congress under Title II of Public Law 85-864, designated 
as "The National Defense Education Act of 1958." approved Septem- 
ber 2, 1958. 

The program, nationwide in scope, provides loans to students 
under easy terms with Special Scholarship provision for Student 
borrowers who later enter public secondary and elementary teach- 
ing and public school administrative careers. 

An eligible college student may borrow up to $1,000 per year. 
No student however, may receive more than $5,000 in loans from 
funds established under this act. Interest at 3 per cent begins to 
accrue and repayment begins on any outstanding balance of a loan 
one year after the borrower ceases to be a full-time college student. 

This act specifies that only students in satisfactory standing 
may receive assistance under this act. In order for a student to 
have '"satisfactory" standing, he must be eligible to continue in at- 
tendance at the institution where he is enrolled based upon the 
achievement of satisfactory progress towards a degree and the 
maintenance of good conduct, in accordance with the institution's 
standards and practices. 

An institution of higher learning has the responsibility for 
carefully assessing the degree of financial need of a borrower. In 
general, information concerning the assets and income of the stu- 
dent and his family and reasonable expenses of the student loan 
officers of the institution. 

A loyalty oath is required from all borrowers. Every candidate 
for a national defense student loan must sign a loyalty oath and 
affidavit which will be imprinted on a form to be supplied partici- 
pating colleges by the Government. 

It is hoped that the National Defense Student loan program 
vrill make it possible for a great number of eligible college students 
to enroll at the colleges of their choice. 

Savannah State College is participant of the National Defense 
Student Loan Program. Further details concerning this program 
may be secured by contacting Mr. Nelson R. Freeman. Dean of 

It was called to the attention of the Editor of the Tiger's Roar 
by Mr. E. A. Bertrand that many of the students were not 
sufficiently acquainted with this program. 

It is hoped that this article will tend to correct such a situation.

My Kind of Democracy 
(W hat I ff ant Most For 

the ISeiv Year) 
By Leford Tobias 
I want a peaceful co-existence 
among men, I want a gigantic 
exhibition of brotherly love, 
friendship and loyalty, I want 
many sincere friends, who'll try 
to understand my faults and 
mistakes, and yet remain loyal 
when I am proven in error. I 
want an untiring sense of 
responsibility and duty em- 
beded in manly willpower and 
proven deeds, I want justice 
sewn with mercy. I want a sense 
of humor and the genius to 
laugh, the grace to forgive, the 
humility to be forgiven, the 
willingness to praise and the 
modesty to be praised. 

I want international rivals to 
meet on the street and shake 
hands and smile earnestly, I 
want to see Mr. Khrushchev and 
Mr. Eisenhower meet on Main 
Street and pat each other on the 
back cheerfully and one suggest 
a spot of tea. They need not 
argue over the matter of who'll 
pay for the tea; I wUI pay for it, 
I want to go to bed at night 
and not fear the forthcoming 
day, I want to say goodnight to 
my family with a smile and 
know that they are safe and 
secure, I want to think of my 
posterity and not harbor a sense 
of grief and fear for the future, 
I want to sleep and dream of 
kneeling hills, the restless sea, 
the dew falling on fresh roses 
and hear the awakening of a 
beautiful morning bringing with 
it the high pitched voices of 
slowly awakening birds. 

Above all. I want men to be 
aware of the presence of God 
on this New Year's Day.

Young people today, particu- 
larly college-age crowds, want a 
sound with which they can find 
a personal identification. 

This is the view of Maynard 
Ferguson, the gifted young 
trumpeter and bandleader who 
is so hot with college dancers 
these days. 

Ferguson thinks it is a serious 
error to try to recapture the 
sounds of the "swing era." 

Ferguson, who has an enor- 
mous sense o fresponsibility to- 
ward the young audiences for 
which he plays — particularly in- 
sofar as he is looked on as repre- 
sentative of jazz — told Down 

"Kids today rebel against the 
tunes and the styles of music 
their parents liked. You have to 
give them something they can 
feel belongs to them 

"If the disc jockies had pro- 
moted Monk's recording of 
■Round About Midnight" as 
something brand new. and let 
the kids discover it for them- 
selves, it could have set as big 
a musical fashion as rock and 

Ferguson, who is featured on 
the cover of the October 1 Down 
Beat, added, "I try to keep that 
in mind when I'm playing for 
young college crowds," 

Baritone saxophonist Gerry 
Mulligan is the latest person 
from the music world to try his 
hand as an actor. Mulligan, who 
may have got the bug some- 
where in the course of his widely 
publicized romance with actress 
Judy HoUiday. plays, of all 
things, a priest in the new film 
about beatniks of the west coast, 
"The Subterraneans." Also in the 
picture is pianist Andre Previn 
who will play, in somewhat less 
offbeat casting, a jabb musician. 

John Hendricks, the gifted 
singer and lyricist who provides 
most of the far-our lyrics for the 
Lambert - Hendricks - Ross vocal 
trio, of which lie is a member, 
tackled one of his most am- 
bitious projects to date when he 
wrote rhyming introductions, to 
be sung by the trio, for the acts 
at the Monterey Jazz festival. 

The Boston Jazz festival — one 
of three sponsored by the 
Sheraton Corp, — got off to a 
good start with an attendance 
of 22,000 during its three days of 
life. Yet the first Boston festival 
could be the last. Persistent re- 
ports have it that the Sheraton 
firm has had its fill of jazz 
festivals (it also sponsored 
festivals at French Lick. Ind.. 
and in Toronto. Canada). The 
reason: they have not proved 
their financial value to the big 
hotel chain.

A writer once said. "Hats off 
to the man who is a little better 
than his word, a little more 
liberal than his promise, and a 
little larger in deed than he is 
in speech," 

Surely the writer who said this 
must have had in mind a person 
like Tommie Lee Mitchell. Quiet 
and soft-spoken, Tommie is in 
all respects a man of his word. 
All persons working with him on 
the annual staff or in other 
organizations can certainly at- 
test to this, 

Tommie hails from Kingsland, 
Georgia, A Korean War Veteran, . 
he is now a senior majoring in 
Health. Physical Education and 

His extra curricular activities 
include The Tiger Yearbook 
Staff. (Editor-in-Chief). Omega 
Psi Phi Fraternity (Keeper of 
records), Y.MC.A,. and Physical . 
Education Club, and college 
baseball team. Tommie's hobbies 
include all types of sports, 
movies and reading. 

The Spotlight takes pleasure 
in adding Tommie to its roster. 
May your cooperative attiude 
and commendable personality 
continue to be reflected among 
your associates. 

Record Fans Can Choose 
Hi-Fi Symphony or Splash 

Little more than ten years 
after the introduction of the 
long-playing record, high-fidelity 
enthusiasts can choose today 
from a variety of records rang- 
ing from Prokofieff to Presley, 
from full-length operas to the 
throb of a single heartbeat. 

An article in the December 
Reader's Digest reports we're 
plunking down 425 miUion 
dollars a year for the privilege. 

Chief beneficiaries of the 
spurting business have been 
"longhair" music fans, notes 
author Don Murray, Ten years 
ago, a long-playing record cata- 
logue published by WilUam 
Schwann listed 11 companies 
offering 407 classical works by 
96 composers. 

But lovers of classical music 
aren't the only beneficiaries. 
Many of the 26,000 phonograph- 
equipped American homes echo 
to the sound of rock-'n-roU 
records, put out by more than 
1,500 small but hopeful record 

Even weirder sounds prevail in 
some homes. Among a small but 
dedicated group of hi-fi aficion- 
ados, hours may be spent listen- 
ing to the recorded progress of 
a violent thunderstorm, an on- 
rushing locomotive, even the 
dripping of water into a rain 

The spoken word has also 
proved immensely popular on 
records. In 1952, two 22-year-old 
girls gambled $1,500 on record- 
ing poetry, Today their Caedmon 
Records have sold three million 
dollars worth of the spoken word. 
Included are readings by such 
distinguished poets as Dylan 
Thomas, Robert Frost and T. S. 
Eliot of their own works. Other 
companies have issued com- 
plete plays. There are even 
records which allow the listener 
to "co-star" with famed actors, 
by reading dialogue during 
pauses on the record.

Sound." It is condensed from

Savannah State Rallies to Tie 
Alabama State College, 14-14 

Playing on a rain-soaked field 
in a steady drizzle, the Savan- 
nah State Tigers roared from 
behind in a tremendous fourth 
period uprising to tie the favored 
Alabama State College Hornets 
of Montgomery, Alabama, 14-14. 

After trailing the Hornets 8-0 
for the first three quarters, the 
Tigers, behind the fine offensive 
play of Quarterback Richard 
Anderson, End Elijah McGraw. 
and Fullback James Davis, the 
Tigers came from behind to score 
two TD's and a conversion to 
deadlock the score, Savannah 
State's record now stands at 
2-2-2. The Hornets also have a 
2-2-2 slate. 

First Period 

At the beginning of the first 
quarter, the Tigers gained 
possession of the ball on the 25- 
yard line as the result of a 
fumble. On the very first play 
the Tigers fumbled and the 
Hornets recovered on the Tigers' 
22. Unable to move the ball, the 
Hornets were forced to punt. 
SSC took the ball in the end 
zone and ran it gack to the 20 
but was unable to budge from 
that spot. Forced to punt on 
fourth down, SSC's Fullback. 
James Davis, was not able to get 
the ball off as the result of a 
bad snap from center and was 
tackled in the end zone for a 
safety. The Hornets went ahead 

Second Period 

The second period proved to 
be a defensive battle between 
the two teams as the Tigers held 
the Hornets to one first down. 
while the Hornets did not permit 
the hapless Tigers to run up a 
single down. The only serious 
scoring threat of the period 
came when the Tigers fumbled 
on thier own 8-yard stripe and 
Alabama recovered on the 5. 
The Tigers defense, led by 
Lawrence Williams and James 
Bowens held. On the fourth 
down Williams Mcintosh. Tiger 
Tackle, broke through and re- 
covered a Hornet fumble on the 
Tiger 18, as the Hornets at- 
tempted to pass. 

Third Period 

As the start of the third quar- 
ter, the Tigers' offense came to 
life as they picked up their first 
first down of the game. Both 
teams continued to play a strong 
defensive game during this 
period. Little Richard Anderson. 
SSC Freshman Quarterback, 
thrilled the rain-soaked crowd 
of less than 1,000 fans as he 
broke through the Hornet's line 
twice for a total of 36 yards to 
niove the pigskin to the Hornet's 
25. The third period ended with 
the score remaining 8-0 in favor 
of the Hornets. McGraw and 
Davis took the defensive honors 
for the Tigers in this period. 
Fourth Period 

During the fourth and final 
period, the Tiger offense which 
started to roll during the third 
period, really came to life. In 
the first few minutes of the 
quarter, QB Anderson ran the 
ball from the Tigers' 35 to the 
Tornets' 35 on one of the most 
spectacular runs of the evening. 
John Strong, HB and John 
Owens, FB. in four plays moved 
the ball to the Hornets' 8 where 
Davis, who switched from End 
to Fullback for the play, passed 
to McGraw in the end zone for 
SSC's first TD of the evening. 
The try for conversion failed 
and SSC now trailed 8-6. 

The Hornets' David Veasy 
sensing a possible upset, took 
the Tiger gick-off and galloped 
85 yards for the second Hornet 
score of the evening to quickly 
go out in front 14-6. The at- 
tempted conversion was missed. 

With four minutes left in the 
ballgame. Alabama had posses- 
sion on SSC's 29 where they 
fumbled. Lawrence Williams of 
SSC recovered for the Tigers. 

Lawrence ■Cult" Williams 
t-atches a pass (iurin« the Home- 
coming contest between Savan- 
nah State College "Tigers' and 
the Albany State College 
"Rams." After the completion 
of the pass, Williams scored for 
the Tigers. Savannah State Col- 
lege won the contest 10 to 8. 

SSC Loses to 
Benedict, 24-6 

The Savannah State College 
Tigers suffered their second de- 
feat of the 1959 gridiron season 
at the hands of the power-laden 
Beendict College Tigers of Co- 
lumbia, South Carolina, 24-6. 

Playing on the rain-soaked Sa- 
vannah State College Athletic 
Field before a capacity crowd of 
1,200 cheering fans, the Orange 
and Blue Tigers were no match 
for the South Caroiianians' pass- 
ing and running attacks spear- 
headed by Quarterback Johnny 
Green and Halfback Billy Car- 
son, respectively. 

During the first quarter, Bene- 
dict and SSC put on quite a de- 
fensive performance. Neither 
team was able to score. Three 
times during this period, Bene- 
dict rolled down to the SSC's 
20-yard stripe, but the fine de- 
fensive play of SSC's end, Law- 
rence Williams and SSC's Guard 
Jesse Carter stopped the pay- 
dirt march of the Purple and 
Gold Tigers from the Palmetto 
State. Benedict was never in 
any serious trouble, as the Tigers 
from Savannah were not able to 
get beyond their own 45-yard 

The second period was a car- 
bon copy of the first until the 
last 4 minutes when the bottom 
seemed to fall out of the SSC's 
defense. The fireworks started 
when Benedict's halfback. Car- 
son, intercepted an SSC pass on 
the Benedict 28-yard stripe. On 
the very next play Benedict's 
quarterback, Green, passed to 
his right end, James Pratt, for 
the first TD of the afternoon. 

In two plays the Tigers moved 
the ball through the Hornet line 
to their own 35. On the third 
down FB Davis passed to Mc- 
Graw at the midfield stripe, Mc- 
Graw ran it all the way for the 
most thrilling run of the entire 
afternoon. The first try for con- 
version was nullified when pass 
interference was called on the 
Hornets. On the second attempt. 
Davis plunged through the 
center of the Hornets line for 
the conversion. The scoreboard 
read 14-14, with three minutes 
left, neither team was able to 
.score again, and the game 
ended in a deadlock. 

Outstanding offensively for 
SSC were James Davis and Elijah 
McGraw- David Veazey captured 
offensive honors for the Ala- 
bamaians. Leading SSC's defen- 
sive attack were James Bowen, 
Henry Wesley, Louis Brown, and 
Eddie Bell. For the Hornets, 
Robert Turk and Charles Wil- 
liams were outstanding. 

The try for conversion failed and 
Benedict led 6-0. After Benedict 
kicked to SSC, the hapless 
Orange and Blue Tigers lost the 
ball on downs as they were un- 
able to dent the Benedict for- 
ward wall, SSC's fullback. James 
Davis, punted on the fourth 
down; Halfback Green of Bene- 
dict took the punt on the SSC 
45-yard and galloped all the way 
to pay dirt. The attempted con- 
version after the TD was blocked 
by SSC's halfback, B, C. Cars- 
well. Benedict led 12-0. 

At the beginning of the third 
quarter, SSC put on a sustained 
drive from their 30 to Benediri • 
11. With SSC on Benedict's 'M\ 
SSC's QB, Richard Anderson 
passed on SSC's end. Elijah Mr- 
Graw, for 20 yards. Three play.^ 
later FB James Davis passed to 
McGraw, but the pass was in- 
complete. In two plays James 
Whatley. HB. and QB Anderson 
moved the ball to the Benedict 
11. On the very next play What- 
ley fumbled on the ten-yard 
stripe and Benedict recovered. 
With Benedict in possession, on 
their first play, HB Billy John- 
son galloped around SSC's right 
end to the SSC 44. a 46- yard run. 
QB Green then carried to the 
SSC 28. and next play Johnson 
ran it over for a TD. However, 
the TD was nullified because of 
a penalty. On the next play 
Johnson ran it to the SSC 5: the 
gun sounded for the end of the 
quarter and the third scoring 
threat of the Palmetto State 
Tigers ground to a halt, with

SSC Loses to 
Clallin, 38-16 

The Savannah State College 
Tigers went down to a smashing 
38-16 defeat at the hands of the 
Claflin College Panthers of 
Orangeburg. South Carolina, in 
their last home game of the 
1959 gridiron season. 

Playing on a rain-soaked field 
in a steady drizzle for the fourth 
time this season, the Tigers came 
from behind and went out front 
16-14. only to be swamped by 
the onrushing Panthers in the 
fourth period, who piled up a 
total of 24 points in the final 
ten minutes of the closing 
period. The Tigers overall record 
now stands at 2-4-2. Their con- 
ference record is 1-1-1. Claflin 
has an overall record of 5-3 and 
a conference of 2-1, 

The Panthers from the Pal- 
metto State juickly chalked up 
two successive TD's in the first 
period before SSC Tigers could 
.solve their razzle-dazzle offense. 
SSC, who has been a slow-start- 
ing team all season long came 
to life in the second and third 
periods after solving the fast- 
moving offense of the Panthers. 
The Tigers scored their total of 
16 points as the result of a safety 
in the second quarter and two 
TD's and conversion in the third 
period. It seemed for a time that 
tlie Tigers would make it a close 
one, but the rip-roaring Panth- 
ers came surging back in the 
final ten minutes of the fourth 
period, scoring almost at will, as 
SSC's defense was ripped to 

First Period 

In the early minutes of the 
first quarter, SSC found it diffi- 
cult to stop the passing of 
Claflin's rifle-armed quarter- 
back, Norwell Chambers. Cham- 
ber's passing was responsible for 
two Panther TD's in the open- 
ing minutes of the first frame. 
On a sustained drive covering 
65 yards. Chambers hit his left 
end, Louis Anderson, for the 
first TD of the evening In a 
play that covered 9 yards. The 

Pictured above is Elijah Mc- 
Graw, Co-Captain of the Tigers' 
Squad this past season. McGraw 
was the Tigers leading scorer 
with a total of eight touchdowns. 
PAT was no good. Following the 
kickoff after the first TD, SSC 
lost the ball on downs. State's 
James Davis, attempting to kick 
on the fourth down, had his 
punt blocked on SSC's 26, by his 
namesake on Claflin's team, 
James Davis, who was In the 
tackle position for the Panthers. 
Five ph.ys later Chambers hit 
HB Earl Spain in the end zone 
for the second Panther TD of 
the evening. George Sargent, 
Panther fullback, ran the pig- 
skin over for the PAT. The first 
quarter ended with Claflin ahead 

Second Period 

The second period was pri- 
marily a defensive struggle be- 
tween the two teams. SSC, how- 
ever, scored a safety when James 
Davis. Tiger fullback, blocked a 
fourth down punt attempt by 
Claflin QB Norwell Chambers in 
the end zone. The quarter ended 
with the score 14-2. 
Third Period 

In the opening minutes of the 
third period, SSC began to show 
a little offensive ability as they 
put on a sustained 50-yard drive 
for their first tally of the eve- 
ning. Sparked by HB Henry 
Wesely, QB Richard Anderson 
and FB James Davis, the Tigers 
marched from mid-field to the 
Panthers 12. From this point 
Davis ran it over the middle for 
the TD. The try for conversion 

SSC's second TD came when 
Henry Wesely intercepted a 
Panther pass on the SSC 30 and 
ran it back to the Panther 30. 
On the fourth down Davis passed 
to QB Richard Anderson for the 
second Tiger TD of the game. 
Anderson rolled out around left 
end for the end and State went 
ahead 16-14 as the third period 

Fourth Period 

In the final quarter. Claflin 
made it a rout, scoring a total 
of 24 points, more than their 
total for the previous three 
quarters. The Panther's first TD 
came on a 65-yard pass play 
from Chambers to Sargent. The 
try for conversion failed and 
Claflin went ahead 20-16, 

Following the kickoff after 
touchdown Claflin scored a

SSC Tigers Have 
Fair Season; 
Finish 2nd in SEAC 

The Savannah State College 
Tigers played the majority of 
their games in rain this season, 
and finished second in the SEAC 
conference with a 2-1-1 record. 
The Tiger's overall record was 
3-4-2. The Tiger's were playing 
with the absence of ten men 
from last year's squad, which 
precipitated the need for a back- 
field, and most of all our quar- 

At the opening of the season, 
Coach Richard Washington took 
an inventory of the prospective 
players and selected freshman 
halfback Richard Anderson to 
play quarterback. After the 
selection of a quarterback, he 
formulated with a backfield 
combination composed of John 
Strong and Henry Wesely. In 
halfback positions, James Davis 
and John Owens. Substitutes in 
the backfield positions were : 
Tom Farlow. Harold Lewis, 
Thurston Powell. Joe Sweet, 
John Sweet and B- C, Carswell. 

The Tiger's line was fairly 
strong as it was composed of all 
veterans from last season. In the 
ends were Elijah McGraw, James 
Davis and Lawrence Williams. 
At tackles, Eddie Bell, Louis 
Brown and Joe Mincey. The 
guards were Jesse Carter, James 
Bowens, Ellis Zander and John 
Gordon. The center was Hosie 
Harris. Helping these linemen 
State 1 and Mullins bolted over 
for the TD, The attempt for the 
extra point was no good 

The Panthers struck again 
were James Colbert, Sam 
Thompson. Morris Carter, Paul 
Buchanan. James Curthous. Sam 
Holland, Paul Jackson. William 
Mcintosh and Vernon Sams. 

As Tiger's Roar sports Pditui, I 
have selected my choice of the 
most outstanding football play- 
ers on the Savannah State Col- 
lege football squad for the sea- 
son of 1959. The selections are 
as follows: James Davis, best 
all-round player. He played end. 
fullback, quarterback, and Ime- 
back. Davis also did most of the 

Best offensive back — John 

Best defensive back — James

Unfolding an amazing aerial 
offensive and a crushing ground 
attack, the Clark College Panth- 
ers romped to a smashing 28-12 
win over the Savannah State 
College Tigers. Saturday after- 
noon, in a colorful homecoming 
battle, at Herndon Memorial 

The Cardinal and Black 
Panthers went out front early, 
moving 73 yards to pay-dirt, the 
first time they got their hands 
on the ball, Charles Hood, Joseph 
Mullins, Robert McFadden. Mil- 
ton Cherry, and Arthur Williams 
lugged the ball to the Savannah 
midway the second period, going 
42 yards on the ground and 
through the air lanes. Johnny 
Scott. Mullins, and Williams 
moved the ball to the Savannah 
State 16, when Jones hit Robert 
Barksdale with a pay-off aerial. 
Williams crashed over for the 
extra points. 

Illegal procedure nullified a 
65-yard touchdown play for Sa- 
vannah State late in the second 
period, but fighting Orange and 
Blue Tigers stormed back and 
went 47 yards to pay-dirt. Quar- 
terback Richard Anderson fired 
two long passes to Elijah Mc- 
Graw and John Strong, the 
Tigers No, 1 ground gainer, then 
tossed a short pass to J. Davis 
for the TD. They tried for points 
but was no good. 

On top. 14-6. as the third 
period got underway, the Clark 
Panthers marched 67 yards after 
the opening kick-off. Taking 
hand-offs from QB Jones, Wil- 
liams. Scott. McFadden and 
Cherry moved the ball to the Sa- 
vannah State 13, where Jones 
pitched a touchdown pass to 
Williams. Jackson powered his 
way into the end zone for the 
extra point. 

Trailing 14-6 in the fourth 
period, the Orange and Blue 
Tigers went 82 yards to pay-dirt 
with Henry Wesely, Powell. 
Anderson, and Joe Sweet grind- 
ing out most of the yardage. A 
15-yard penalty, followed by in- 
terference on a pass, put the 
ball on the Clark 4; Strong 
crashed over for the TD. Again 
the try-for-points was no good.

The Savannah State College 
Tigers edged the Albany State 
College Rams 10-8 in one of the 
most thrilling Homecoming con- 
tests ever played on the Savan- 
nah State athletic field. A highly 
partisan crowd of 4.000 wildly 
cheering Homecoming fans saw 
the keyed-up Blue and Orange 
Tigers in their first conference 
win of 1959 gridiron season. The

able to score as Jesse Carter and 
James Bowen stopped them on 
the 20-yard stripe, At this time 
Albany tried a field goal and 
missed On the return John 
Strong ran 49 yards, but the de- 
fen.sive power of the Rams would 
not let SSC progress any further. 
The first quarter ended without 
any score. 

In the second quarter both 
teams put on an amazing de- 
fensive stand. With six minutes 
left in the second quarter Albany 
was forced to punt from their 
own 20 on fourth down. Big Jess 
Carter. SSC guard, broke 
through the line and blocked the 
punt which was good for a safety 
as he fell on the ball in the end 
zone. Savannah State College 
went ahead 2-0. 

With four minutes left in the 
second period. Quarterback Ar- 
thur Gaumble of Albany moved 
his team from their own 30-yard 
stripe to SSC's 20-yard stripe, 
where the Rams tried another 
field goal but failed. 

The first half ended with SSC 
2. Albany 0. James Bowens was 
outstanding defensively for SSC. 
while John Strong took offen- 
sive honors with 103 yards rush- 
ing during the first half. 

During the first few minutes 
of the third quarter Albany put 
on a sustained drive from their 
35-yard stripe to SSCs 35. pick-

ed to pass, but fumbled and 
Anderson of SSC recovered. 
Again SSC was not able to dent 
the Ram's forward wall and was 
forced to punt. The Rams re- 
turned the punt to SSC's 35. 
where Gaumble's attempted pass 
to Bostlc was intercepted by 
Tiger HB John Strong on the 
14, On the very first play from 
scrimmage Anderson handed the 
ball to John Strong who galloped 
86 yards off his left tackle for 
the first TD of the evening and 
the most spectacular run of the 
..■ntire ball game. The point after

son passed to Lawrence Williams 
in the flat. SSC went ahead 10-0, 
After the Tigers kicked off. 
Albany put on another sustained 
drive, as Gaumble passed to Ram 
End Frank Shaw for 24 yards. 
Halfback Willie Townsend then 
carried the ball to SSC's 45. But 
on the next play Albany fumbled 
and Henry Westly of Savannah 
State recovered. The quarter 
ended at this point. Lawrence 
WiUiams, John Gordon, James 
Davis, led the defensive at- 
tack for SSC during this period. 

The fourth quarter opened 
with Albany on their own 46- 
yard hne. but their progress was 
halted when SSC's 240-pound 
tackle, Louis Brown, made 3 
bruising tackles to stop the 
Rams at the line of scrimmage. 
Albany's defense power was just 
as rough as the Tiger's as ihey 
fought to a standstill in the 
middle of the field. With Albany 
in position, the Ram QB fumbled 
on SSC's 30-yard stripe where 
Vernon Sams, the Tiger center, 
recovered. Again SSC's defense

"The Authentic Look"" 

By Alphonso McLean 
It's true. Ivy League Style be- 
gan on the college campus. This 
is a unique styling designed for 
young men who prefer exclusive, 
"dapper" versions of men's cloth- 
ing. Today Ivy League is the 
hallmark of good grooming for 
men of all ages everywhere. Ivy 
has increased its ranks to men 
of all professions over the nation. 

The Blazer raincoat is a new 
profile of outercoat. traceable to 
the popular blazer sports jackets. 
Cut to hit just above the knee 
i40 inches in length), this model 
gets added jauntiness from 11 
inch side vents and double- 
breasted front with traditional 
brass blazer buttons. Price begins 
around $44.50. 

Slacks tailored in the basic 
Ivy cut without pleats, are 
smartly maneuvered for style 
plus ease of care. Lately the new 
Acri-Weave (automatic wash and 
wear ) flannel has become a 
popular hit among college men. 
This type slack can be found in 
regulars, shorts and longs. Priced 
moderately at $12.95. 

One of the season's top-flight 
sweater targets is the shawl or 
roll collar made of bulky wool. 
Indeed this is of Continental in- 
fluence, made of 100' , virgin 
wool in 6 colors. Prices range 
from $12.95 to $18.95. 

This winter, the authentic look 
features a fine selection of 
shoes. To promote the correct- 
ness of Ivy and Continental 
styling the American Leather 
Company has created a new, 
neat look in shoes with solid 
comfort called Flexairs. Flexairs 
are trimmed down on the out- 
side, cushioned on the inside and 
flexible all over. If its a light- 
footed feeling you enjoy in a 
pair of shoes, Flexairs are for 
you. Most styles range from 
$14.95 to $24.95. 

Well there's no doubt about it. 
today's college student takes a 
dressed-up approach to college 
life. A poet once said, "The body 
is the shell of the soul and dress 
the husk of that shell of the 
soul; but the husk often tells 
what the kernal is." So true a 
statement, so true. There are 
certain factors that determine 
one's personality, dress is one of 
these factors.

Fall Shoes: Variety Galore 

Is the Theme 

The quiet little black pumps 
that go well with any outfit 
will always be with us. But this 
year's shoe news is the variety 
keyed to specific occasions. 

This year's fall collection in- 
cludes a wide range of colors 
and combinations as well as 
styles, The biggest news is the 
return (for dressy wear) of the 
open toe sandals with "T," 
double or sling straps and the 
D'Orsay with dipped sideline. 

Boots made on real shoe last 
and in many heights, from only 
a bit higher than a pump to 
well above the ankle, made lots 
of sense. Flat-heeled models 
should charm the kindergarten 
to college set. High-heeled, tall 
boots look chic as well as prac- 
tical for travel. 

Stacked heels, often thinner 
than the usual Cuban heel. 
range from flats for sportswear 
to over two-and-a-half inches 
high for the almost dressy town 
costume in the season's casual 

Pointed shapes, sharp or modi- 
fied, continue in importance. But 
the slim flat oval toe looks newer 
and is gaining popularity. 

This year various colors are 
coordinated with handbags and 
other accessories. Most popular 
are the browns, pale, spicy. 
chestnut and dark with spice. 
Grays start pale, almost bluish, 
and go to almost black. Greens, 
just as varied, reds and black 
are starred. 

"Coat-Dress Excells In Chic 

The coat dress is fashion's 
magician ; it is a master of 
disguise. This is one style form 
that can look like several other 
styles. Not one of the new 
silhouettes is beyond it and not 
a single trend is outside its 

The coat dress is equally suc- 
cessful as a redingote or as a 
sheath. It takes beautifully to 
shirtwaist shape and uses the 
dress and bolers look for a bit 
of fakery. 

It warps to the side, or 
straight through the middle, 
runs its buttons in a prim line 
or puts them on the diagonal 
and emphasizes the waist with a 
belt. The sleeves with new cut to 
the collar by either ignoring it 
or exaggerating it. 

Savannah State Rallies 

(Continiu-ii from Page A) 

SSC took the punt on their own 
46. From tliis point Davis passed 
to Whatley for 18 yards, and 
two plays later Davis passed 26 
yards to McGraw for a TD. State 
missed the try for conversion 
and the score was now 18-6. On 
the kick off after TD SSC tried 
an off-side kick, but it failed 
and Benedict Tiger's were in 
possession on the SSC 48. On the 
first play from scrimmage. Green 
passed to Pratt for a 48-yard 
touchdown. Again Benedict, who 
had failed to score a PAT all 
afternoon, failed; and the score 
was 24-6. 

With two minutes left in the 
game SSC took to the air but 
was not able to complete but 
two passes out of about six. 
Losing the ball on downs, Bene- 
dict took possession with seconds 
remaining in the game. 

Lawrence Williams, James 
Davis and James Brown were the 
leading defensive player-s for 
SSC making a total of 32 tackle.s 
among them. Johnny Green and 
Billy Car.son were outstanding 
for Benedict.

Social Science Club 

By Gladys Lambert 

The major objective of the 
Social Science Club is to promote 
good citizenship The club tries 
to stimulate the interest of the 
student in local, state, national 
and international affairs so that 
he might better understand cur- 
rent problems and formulate in- 
telligent opinions through 
critical thinking. 

The Social Science Club at- 
tempts to assist students in the 
acquisition of attitudes, skills 
and habits that are requisites for 
the fulfillment of the duties of 
citizenship. It also strives to 
broaden the student's scope of 
knowledge in history, economics, 
sociology, political science and 
other social sciences. 

The Social Science Club won 
first place in the car division of 
the Savannah State College 
Homecoming parade, Mrs, Rub- 
beanuion Youmans, "Miss Social 
Science," and her attendants. 
Bobbie Miller and Alice Law 
represented the Thucydidean

Savannah Slate Ixepreseiils District 
IiiNAIA Toiu-nainent in Kansas 

—-^The Savannah State College Tigers have just won the District 
6 NAIA playoff in Atlanta, Ga. Traveled to Kansas City, Missouri 
^ on March 7 to play in the National Tournament, the Tigers have 
proven they are the best by their performance in the tournament, 
and during the year. Their most wanted victory was over the SIAC 
Tournament Chapmion Florida A&M in the first round 90-89, Their 
championship win came over the night Morris Brown, the SIAC 
conference champions, 76-70, Morris Brown beat Tuskegee in the 
first round 86-41, Florida A&M beat Tuskegee in the consolation 

Going into the tournament 

Savannah's record was 24-3, 
Florida 20-4, Morris Brown 21-5 
and Tuskegee 14-8. Savannah 
and Tuskegee went into the 
tournament as the underdogs 
and most people on newspapers, 
expected Florida A&M and 
Morris Brown to be in the finals 
with Florida coming out on top. 
But the fighting SSC Tigers 
stopped this by eliminating them 
in the first round. The Tigers 
went after Florida with blood in 
their eyes, because they wanted 
to best Florida, since there was 
no regular season game between 
the two, and the Atlanta news- 
paper, radio an dtelevision said 
"it couldn't be done," They also 
stated that SSC was unforthy 
for the tournament, they also 
said "that SSC was out of their 
class. Florida A&M team out- 
weighed and had more height 
than SSC, on the first team they 
had two 6-8, 6-7, 6-5, and a 6 
footer. Where in SSC's first team 
average 5-11. But the little Lilli- 
putan cut the treetoppers down 
to thier sizes, and played in one 

Technical Building to 
Open During the 
Spring Quarter 

Dr. William K. Payne an- 
nounces that he is hoping that 
sometime during the spring 
quarter the technical and sci- 
ence building will be utilized. 

In discussing the new techni- 
cal program appi'oved for S.S.C. 
with William B, Nelson, head of 
the division of technical sciences. 
Savannah State College, is now 
providing training opportunities 
for Negroes which are not avail- 
able anywhere else in the state 
of Georgia. This is the only col- 
lege offering a degree in techni- 
cal sciences. 

Mass production, atomic 
energy, industrial chemistry, 
electronics, and other sciences 
are teaming up to give America 
more goods, a higher standard 
of living, and providing more 
technical jobs for individuals to 
take care of this rapid advance- 
ment in our present industrial 

The data reveal that there are 
not enough technically trained 
people on hand who like mathe- 
matics and applied scinces. Sa- 
vannah State College offers a 
program to train competent 
workers to meet this demand. 

Students entering the tech- 
nical program must meet college 
entrance requirements. It is fur- 
ther suggested that students, 
during their high school train- 
ing, secure as much science, 
mathematics, technical and in- 
dustrial arts as possible while 
in attendance. 

There is urgent need for peo- 
ple with special skills and train- 
ing and are able to help trans- 
late scientific ideas and dis- 
coveries into useful products and 

The technician is a special 
kind of person, and in certain

of the biggest upsets of the year, 
Redell Walton of SSC, the 
leading scorer of the SEAC, out 
scored James Stanley of Florida, 
the leading SlEC scorer, by two 
points, 29-27, Ira Jackson of SSC 
was the high scorer of the game 
with 31. With Morris Brown 
winning over Tuskegee 86-41, 
that meant that SSC was to play 
Morris Brown College in the 
final, Morris Brown being the 
tallest team in the district with 
a team average of 6-7, made it 
look like it was a game between 
the Giants and the Midgets. But 
the Tigers didn't seem to worry 
about thier height as they were 
ahead 51-41 at the first half. 
This half was sparked by James 
Dixon, SSC 5-5 guard, as he hit 
the first four points of the game. 
Jackson of SSC shot 20 points 
in this half. But duiing the sec-

Presidenfs Message 

At the beginning of each academic quarter, three lists of 
students are sent to my office. A fourth list is Implied, the com- 
putation of which must be determined on the basis of the other 
three lists. Usually the first two lists arrive containing the names 
of students who have been dropped for poor scholarship, and the 
names of those who have been placed on academic probation. A 
day or two later the list of students who have made the honor roll 
and the Dean's List reach my office. A study of these lists and 
the total enrollment enable me to determine the fourth list which 
contains the names of the students who are mailing average progress 
in their studies, 

A study of the list of students who are dropped for poor scholar- 
ship over a four-year period indicates that a college of considerable 
size might have been established for failing students. Of course, 
one would not wish to establish a college for students who found 
It impossible to do college work. On the other hand, consideration 
is given to the enormous waste of the time of the students, the 
financial outlay by parents, students, and the state, and the subse- 
quent effect on the personalities of the students. No one of the 
parties connected with the educational process is happy over the 
number of failures and near-failures in our college. While the col- 
lege, parents, and stat« strive to provide conditions and circum- 
stances that make it possible for students to be successful, the major 
responsibility lies on the student. No one, nor a combination of all 
three of the other auents mentioned, has as much to do with the 
success of the student in college as the student himself. It is the 
student who educates himself while he is attending college. His 
position on the four lists which are developed three times a year 
at the college is primarily that of his own making. 

In several instances, the college has indicated its concern by 
providing entrance requirements, orientation programs, and ad- 
visors. It is desirable that students who are unable to do college 
work enter .some other area which would be more suited to their 
aptitudes, interests, and desires. Someone has estimated that more 
than half of the students dropped for poor scholarship or placed on 
probation could, through their own efforts, have done satisfactory 

The conditions which face the colleges today will emphasize 
this feature far more than in the past three decades. Standards 
and quality of college work will be raised each year. Average per- 
formance in our colleges today will move up to a new level. This is 
equally true of those who make the honor roll and the Dean's List. 
Students have been willing to accept in non-classroom activities 
the reality of living and learning. Those who are too light for foot- 
ball, too short for basketball, too slow for track, unable to carry a 
time for the chorus, unable to participate in debating, and many 
other collegiate activities do not waste time attending the practices. 
In classroom matters, however, too many have been content to be 
around or in the procession. 

If students have not discovered before they arrive at college 
their inability to do college work, they should determine that factor 
during the first quarter and voluntarily withdraw. Those who plan 
to remain in college and to complete the program which they 
have undertaken, should plan to do it in an acceptable manner. 
The sooner students come to this personal understanding, the 
happier will be their lot and that of the cooperating agencies. 


Open Letter to the 

Savannah State College Family 

Dear Family; 

I feel that the matter of getting out a student publication on 
time should be called to your attention. 

If your memory is serving you correctly, you will recall that only 
two previous issues of the Tiger's Roar have been published thus 
far this school year. What? You say why not? A very good ques- 
tion indeed! 

The Tiger's Roar is published, "supposedly," by the student 
body of Savannah State College; however, only a very few, in fact 
very, very fev/ .students have been cooperating with the staff in 
meeting its deadlines. 

Thi-s publication Is the official organ of the S.S.C. student body, 
the expression of students' opinions, and should reflect the caliber 
of students attending this institution.

By Robert Bess 

As we look back over the past 
decade, a decade of controversy 
and survival of the fittest, we 
find that in the music world a 
struggle for survival has also 
existed. The two elements of 
music affected by this struggle 
were Rock and Roll and Pro- 
gressive Jazz. This struggle en- 
tailed more than could be easily 
seen by the average bystander: 
it was an effort on the part of 
the teen-ager to create some- 
thing in the line of music that 
he could feel was his own, pro- 
moted by commercial exploita- 
tion. On the other hand, pro- 
gressive jazz was and still re- 
mains an inspired music indica- 
tive of a more mature American 

In the first few years of the 
decade, rock and roll gained 
momentum, and young knee- 
shaking long haired stars were 
born overnight, and recording 
companies did a thriving busi- 
ness and thought they liad a 
pipeline to Fort Knox as a 
courtesy of the teen-age record 
buyer. Even at that early stage, 
it should have been obvious that 
anything as musically im- 
poverished as rock and roll could 
not last without artificial 
stimulus. Once the truth was 
reahzed, the pendulum began to 
swing in the other direction. 

This truth was first introduced 
by Mitch Milter in his speech to 
a disc jockey convention in 
Kansas City in 1958. Mitch 
pointed out that to program 
music exclusively for the teen- 
age market was commercial 
suicide. After all, aside from 
chewing gum and similar odd- 
ments, what products would the 
teen-agers buy even if they 
listened to the commercials? 
Today, we find an impressive 
number of network affiliates and 
independents outlawing rock and 
roll, or limiting it severely. 

With the rock and roll scene 
now on the downgrade, everyone 
is rushing over to the music with 
feeling, a music that "says some- 
thing" in a language not audible 
to the huma near, but a com- 
munication that penetrates the 
soul. The trend is -STRICTLY 

For all of you old jazz lovers. 
new progressive appreciates, and 
rock and rollers who are gradu- 
ally learning to appreciate 
smoother and more provocative 
listening, stop by some of the 
"spots" around town and "lend 
an ear" to some of your home 
towners in the making. Appear- 
ing at one of the most popular 
night spots in the city, a group 
under the leadership of the 
talented Claude Roberts is keep- 
ing it "swinging." Claude is a 
drummer from the "old school." 
The other members of the group 
are: Teddy Allen, a young man 
with a smooth trombone and 
does a unique job with arrange- 
ments; Bobby Greene, alto sax 
man with that "Parker tone": 
John Scott, bass, and Johnnie 
McMillian on piano. 

Also, as a tip from Bob, watch 
for the appearance of a new 
group of "old pros" using the 
name the "RCP Three." The 
group consists of the exceptional 
Ted Pollens on piano, Robert 
Vaughn on drums; and the 
sensational Laurney Roberts on 
bass doing his usual gratifying 
feats with the vocal chords. A 
fine combination of talents 
which spells "STRICTLY JAZZ."

My Kind of Democracy 

By Leford Tobias. Jr. 

A decade has ended and his- 
tory now turns the page on the 
1960's. It is a long page, packed 
with spectacular, terrifying and 
heartening developments. It 
records new concepts swiftly 
brought to reality, great changes. 
new concepts of the future, and 
great contrasts to the past. It is 
characterized by two words, 
shadow and light. 

THE SHADOW. A hydrogen 
bomb incinerated an island in 
1953. A Russian rocket capable 
of carrying such a bomb actually 
hit the moon in 1959. Rocket- 
armed submarines prowled un- 
believable distances without sur- 

THE LIGHT. Medical science 
swept forward in giant strides 
with the Salk vaccine, new drugs 
for mental illness, isotopes and 
other weapons in the battle 
against cancer. Nations, although 
political enemies in some 
instancs, pooled efforts in the 
greatest study of the physical 
earth ever conducted. The cen- 
turies old dream of a united 
Europe came close to reality. 
Europeans formed the Iron and 
Steel Community in 1952, 
Euratom in 1953, and the com- 
mon market patterns of 1959. 
Apparently reversing the policies 
of his predecessors, N i k i t a 
Khrushchev said in 1959, "Let 
us disarm and compete in peace- 
ful co-existence." 

Six months after the dawn of 
the decade, the cold war turned 
hot. Before dawn on June 25, 
1950. six North Korean infantry 
divisions, armed and trained by 
the Russians, attacked South 
Korea. They poured across the 
never to be forgoten 38th 

Immediately, President Tru- 
man ordered American land, sea 
and air forces into action, 
Americans were now dying again 
on foreign batelfields for rea- 
sons not clearly understood at 
the time. 

By Thanksgiving, the war was 
"won." The North Koreans were 
shattered. American soldiers, 
standing on the banks of the 
Yalu River, looked at Red China 
on the opposite bank. 

So the fifties began as the 
Age of Anxieties. 

The great climax came in a 
pleasant city in Arkansas. Little 
Rock today is more than a nem; 
it is a milestone. 

The most violent chapter in 
the story began September 4. 
1957, when Gov. Orval Faubas 
ordered units of the Arkansas 
National Guard to surround 
Central High School in Little 
Rock to prevent Negro students 
from entering. 

After court orders, the Faubas- 
Eisenhower conference, and mob 
riots, federal troops entered 
Little Rock, September 24. 

A cult of beared "beatniks" 
arose, wearing dark apparel and 
sun glasses, writing odd ball 
poems, and indulging in easy 
living. These people developed a 
language of their own. They did 
nothing, but had a heck of a 
good time doing It.

SS€ Tigers 
Are "Red Hot" 

By Jolly Stephens 

The Savannah State College 
Tigers look as though they will 
win the SEAS crown again this 
year. They are the defending 
SEAC champions from last sea- 
son. As of January 20, the Tigers 
have won twelve and lost one, 
losing their only game to their 
"jinx." Benedict College 98-95. 
The Tigers have conference wins 
over Florida Normal. Paine Col- 
lege, Claflin College and Mor- 
ris College. 

The Tigers' siwicess has been 
sparked by the "Fabulous Sopho- 
more Five." which includes 
James Dixon, Stephen Kelly, 
Redell Walton, Willie Tate and 
Ira Jackson. Helping this five, 
which are belter known for 
their defense, are Elijah Mc- 
Graw, James Davis, Raymond 
Harper, Robbin Roberts and Al- 
phonso McLean, Other helpers 
are Lawrence Williams, Roland 
Nash, Joe Sweet. Marian Dingle, 
Frank Martin and Alfred Wil- 
liams, Freshmen joining the 
team were Willie Epps. William 
Day. Arthur Payton and Leon 
Wright. All of these fellows have 
seen action this season. 

The Tigers opened their 1959- 
60 season at home by rolling 
over Allen University 101-93. 
This game was seemingly a test 
for evaluating the Tigers' of- 
fense. On December 9. the Ti- 
gers invaded Florida and played 
three games: Edward Waters, 
Bethune Cookman and Florida 
Normal, The Edward Waters 
game was more of a defensive 
experiment to evaluate the Ti- 
gers' defense. They beat Edward 
Waters 88-50. Leaving Jackson- 
ville, the team traveled to Day- 
tona to play Bethune Cookman, 
and won in five minutes over- 
time 99-89, The Tigers scored 16 
points during the overtime per- 
iod. Then the Tigers journeyed 
to St. Augustine to play their 
first Conference game against 
Florida Normal to win by a score 
of 63-54. This was a game played 
in one of the smallest gymna- 
siums among the Conference ac- 

Being successful on the road, 
the Tigers came home to play 
two games with Clark College of 
Atlanta, Georgia. The Tigers 
won both games 62-59 and 72-62. 
Three days later, Bethune Cook- 
man came to visit the Tigers 
seeking vengeance, but the Ti- 
gers nipped them 87-85. With 
seven straight wins under their 
belts, the Tigers met the "tough" 
Virginia State Spartans and sent 
them home with a defeat of 
102-75, The Tigers enjoyed the 
holidays with an 8-0 record. 

After the three-week vacation 
the Tigers played Benedict Col- 
lege and met their first defeat 
98-95. Resenting this defeat, the 
Tigers poured it on Paine Col- 
lege of Augusta. Ga., for a 109-65 
victory. Then the team left for 
Orangeburg, S. C, and played 
Cliflin College in tlieir third con- 
ference game and won by a score 
of 71-64. The next day, the team 
traveled to Sumpter to play Mor- 
ris College in anotlier conference 
game in which the Tigers won 

Returning home, the Tigers 
found Fort Valley waiting for 
them. Well, the Tigers "shot 
them out of the gym" as Coach 
Ted Wright played seventeen 
men to beat the sister State 
School 96-76. 

Tigers Win SEAC Tournament, 
Defeat Florida Normal in Final 

The Savannah State College Tigers won their second consecutive 
SEAC Tournament by beating Florida Normal in the final 102-76. 
The leading scorers for the Tigers were Redell Walton, with 33 and 
Ira Jackson, 24. For Florida Normal. Bill McDougald with 29 and 
Scott Perry. 25. The half time scores were 45-34. in favor of SSC 
Tigers. Walton, Jackson, McDougald, Perry and James Davis of 
Clafli nmade the first team in the all tournament selection. Jackson 
of Savannah was chosen as the most valuable player in the tourna- 

Claflin won over Morris Col- 
lege, 76-74, in a five minute 
overtime for consolation. 

Starting the first half for the 
champions were four members 
of the "Sophomore Five" and 
Robert Robbins. the only senior 
on the team. The others were 
Jackson, Walton, Willie Tate 
and James Dixon. For Florida 
Normal, McDougald. Perry. A. 
Powell, J. Williams and A, Jones. 
Bothe teams started the first 
half off by being very "hot" as 
they were tied 12-12. with the 
game 5 minutes old. Walton and 
McDougald were setting the pace 
with 6 points each. But with 
Jackson blocking a couple of 
Florida shots and James Dixon 
of SSC steahng and setting up 
passes the Tigers quickly went 
out ahead by 9 points. Florida 
Normal was never ahead during 
the half. The first half ended 

Starting the second half were 
the same two teams. With the 
second half 8 minutes old. Perry 
and McDougald of Florida had 
cut Savannah State College 
Tigers' half time lead down to 
5 points. 

At this time the Tigers sent in 
the other member of the "Sopho- 
more Five," Stephen Kelly, a 
5' 10" guard, who is a flashy, 
smooth ball handler, and he 
really got the team moving, in 

The Tigers Are Champions Again 

The Savannah State College Tigers did it again! They won 
both the conference title and the visitation tournaments. The 
Tigers were undefeated in SEAC play, with 10 wins and two wins 
in tournament play. They edged Clafhn in the second round 72-70 
and triumphed over Florida Normal in the final 102-76. The Tigers' 
season record is 24-3. 

fact, he had 6 assists in 5 
minutes. Kelly was the spark at 
this time because his opponents 
did not know what he was going 
to do with the ball when he had 
possession of it. Kelly also shot 
10 points in this half, with 55 
seconds left in the game, Walton 
hit the century mark with a 12- 
foot jump shot. 

On Friday, February 26, 1960,

Tigers will play Florida A&M 
College of Tallahassee, Florida

son, Redell Walton, and Willie

Robbins and Ira Jackson. 

The Raekers and 
Gators Lead 

Intramural basketball got on 
it.5 way, starting in January with 
eight teams participating. They 
are: Colts, Omegas. Gators. Apes, 
Hornets, Tramps, Kappas and 
the Raekers. 

With the Masoning and the 
Gorillas out of the intramural 
this season the competition 
should be tough among these 
eight teams. The Masoning went 
undefeated in conference play 
last year an dthe Gorillas lost 
one. But the Raekers and the 
Gators are the teams to watch 
for this season, since both teams 
have two wins with no losses. 
The Gators have wins over the 
Apes 65-17 and the Colts 41-34. 
The Raekers have wins over the 
Apes 52-20 and the Kappas 43-26. 
Intramural fans are saying that 
the Gators can win if the Raek- 
ers don't make them hit their 
own tail, so all of this remains 
to be seen. 

The only team that gave the 
Tigers trouble this year were 
those two Carolina teams, Bene- 
dict and Allen, Benedict being 
our jinx team, beat us twice this 
season, and Allen won one and 
lost one. But other than these 
two teams, the Tigers haven't 
had any trouble. 

Oh, the Tigers roster this sea- 
son was 20 men, they were: the 
"Sophomore Five." James DLxon. 
Stephen Kelly, Willie Tate, Ira 
Jackson and Redell Walton, On 
the "defensive five." Raymond 
Harper. Alfonso McLean, Elijah 
McGraw. James Davis and Rob- 
ert Robbins, Other members of 
the team are Lawrence Williams. 
Marion Dingle. Willie Epps. Joe 
Sweet. William Day. Arthur Pay- 
ton, Sam Thompson, Leon 
Wright, Sam Thompson, Roland 
Nash and Frank Martin, AU of 
these Tigers have played a great 
part in SSC's splendid record. 

Redell Walton and Ira Jackson 
made All-SEAC for thlcr second 
year. Walton has the highest 
scoring average in the confer- 
ence with a 25.5 for 12 games. 
Jackson was chosen the most 
valuable player in the tourna- 
ment. Jackson and Walton 
scored 113 points out of SSC's 174 
in the tournament. Walton scor- 

ing 57 and Jackson 56. These two 
fellows have been the big guns 
when it came to scoring all 
season. Willie Tate also helped 
in the scoring column this season 
as he has an average of 17 points 
per kame. James Dixon, better 
known as the "Little General" 
by his teammates, is the acting 
captain for the Tigers. He is only 
5-5 tall, but he is responsible for 
the playmaking and the pace 
in which the team plays. Stephen 
Kelly a 5-10 guard has been the 
spark of the team with his 
smooth bail handling, dribbling 
and getting those points when 
needed. Kelly lead the team in 
assists, Robert Robbin. the only 
senior on the team, is one of the 
best rebounders on the team as 
he has an average of 17 per 
game. These six players have 
been the workhorses on the 
team, and the Tiger's Roar 
salutes them and their team- 
mates for the performance they 
have contributed to SSC this 
season. The Tigers having a 22-2 
record before the tournament, 
was chosen to appear in the 
District 6 tournament of the 
NAIA in Atlanta. Ga,, on Febru- 
ary 26-27. The winner of this 
tournament will represent this 
district in Kansas City, Missouri.

Tigers Lose 
To Benedict 

By Jolly Stephens, Jr. 
The Savannah State College 
Tigers lost their second game out 
of 22 to Benedict Cotiege of Co- 
lumbia, South Carolina. 96-88. 
This game was full of excite- 
me nt.questionable officiating 
and coaching on the part of the 
home team. The scores at half 
time were 42-33 Benedict. The 
leading scorers for Benedict were 
Herald Johnson 29 and Walter 
Simmons 21. For SSC Redell 
Walton 39 and Ira Jackson 18. 

The first half started with 
Benedict getting the breaks. It 
seemed that SSC could not get 
the ball down the court with- 
out running or double dribbling. 
The game was once tied at 5. but 
fouling on the part of Ira Jack- 
son, Savannah State College 6' 
Vh" center who is one of the 
leading scorers on the team gave 
Benedict free throws in which 
they capitalized on. With the 
game six minutes old Jackson 
had three fouls, which is his 
game average for the season. 
With Jackson having three fouls 
he was replaced by Robert 
Robbins and the duel between 
the two teams was on. During 
this half the scores were tied at 
21-23-27-29 and 31. With Walton 
leading Savannah and Simmons 
leading the Carolinians, With 
the game this tight. Savannah 
State College fouling sent Bene- 
dict out front to end the second 
half with Benedict leading 42-33. 
Walton of Savannah State 
College was hlgii scorer for this 
half with 21. Johnson and Sim- 
mons for Benedict with 12 and 
13- During this first half. Sa- 
vannah found out that Benedict 
had too much air in the ball, 
and that caused confusion. But 
the officials finally decided to 
take some of the air out. This 
disagreement brought on an- 
other, when Benedict Coach 
asked Savannah State College 
Coach to take his team off the 
floor, but Coach Ted Wright of 
Savannah refused and the Bene- 
dict Coach was ready to go into 
physical violence. It was all 
stopped by the officials before 
it went any further. 

Starting the second half for 
Savannah was the same team 
that started the first half, the 
"Sophomore F i v e." Benedict 
started their first give. The game 
was going along smoothly until 
the Savannah State College 
Tigers came in with 3 points of 
Benedict, when Larry Feet of 
Benedict picked a fight with Sa- 
vannah State College Captain 
James Dixon, a 5' 5" guard who 
had 4 assists with the second 
half 8 minutes old. The official 
put both of them out of the 
game, the score at this time was 
71-68 Benedict. Robbins replaced 
Dixon an dthe Tigers were still 
gaining on Benedict. With 9 
minutes left in the half, Jackson 
ha dshot 16 points before the 
official called two consecutive 
fouls on him to put him out of 
(he game. The score at this time 
was 76-73. SSC. With the game 
moving on Timothy Shine of 
Benedict fouled Walton, But an 
argument came up at the official 
table. Savannah State College 
representative had five fouls for 
Shine and the homebook which 
is the official book had four so 
Shine remained in the game. 
At this time Tate and Walton 
were scoring for the Tigers. With 
four minutes left in the game 
Benedict got hot and tied SSC 
82-32, At this time. Tate fouled 
out of the game which left only 
two of the original starters in 
the game. Walton and Stephen 
Kelly. And then again, just like 
in the first half everything SSC 
Jid was wrong, as Benedict 
capitalized on SSC mistakes. The 
Tigers had more running, walk- 
ing, dribbling violation in this 
one game called o nthem than 
Ihey have had in the last ten 
games together.

the ones which you already have

If you have a red suit, why not 
outline it in black fur or wool? 
For an even more vivid effect, 
try a cerise cocktail dress with

Open Letter to SSC Family 

l( ontiniied Irorii I'ligr HI 

If this publication is not published on time, then no one wants 
reasons or rationale why the paper did not meet its deadline; the 
only thing desired is someone to be the recipient of the blame for 
the said infraction. 

I sincerely feel that the SSC. family should consider that the 
editorial staff are full-time students carrying a full load. There 
are no superhumans working on this staff; therefore, in order to 
function properly, it requires the cooperation of the entire college 
at large. 

I am hereby soliciting the cooperation of the Savannah State 
College Family in order that the Tiger's Roar staff may meet its 
deadlines and then everyone will be happy. 

I thank you in advance for your profound consideration.

All filter cigarettes are divided 
into two parts, and... 

'Weni, widi, Winston!" Thus did Caesar 
(a notoriously poor speller) hail the discovery 
of Filter-Blend — light, mild tobaccos specially 
selected and specially processed for filter smoking. 

He knew that a pure white filter 
alone is not enough. To be a com- 
plete filter cigarette, it must have 
Filter-Blend up front. And only 
Winston's got it! 

That's why Caesar would never 
accept another brand even when it 
was offered gratis. In fact, history 

tells us he'd glower at the extended 
pack and sneer, "Et tu, Brute?" 
In a stirring peroration to his 
legions, Caesar put it this way: 
"For the Numeral I filter ciga- 
rette—for the best-tasting filter 
cigarette — for the noblest filter 
cigarette of all — smoke Winston !" 

"Winston tastes good like a cigarette should!"

his Argosy to Colchis where with 
the aid of Medea's sorcery he 
stole the Golden Fleece from the 
serpent-guarded cave. The prin- 
cess of Colchis saved his life once 
again when she slew her brother 
who pursued them in their flight 
to Jason's Argo, anchored on the 
Black Sea shore. Jason returned

The Chatham County Public 
Schools have no aims apart from 
the developnrent of boys and 
girls. If you ask Sol C. Johnson 
Teachers. "What are you trying 
to do? What do you assume to 
be your basic asks? How does 
your Guidance Program func- 
tion?" They would answer some- 
thing like this: 

"We are teaching boys and 
girls to become good citizens who 
think and act in a straight for- 
ward manner and who have good 
character and moral firmness." 

The wide range of planned' 
school activities provide the 
needed day to day experiences 
which will help students to prac- 
tice good citizenship. In his 
participation the student prac- 
tices critical thinking, realizing 
that the pulse beat of a great 
country is found only in an in- 
formed citizenry. Foundations 
for this kind of tlilnking will be 
found on every grade level at 
Sol C. Johnson. 

The teachers are helping stu- 
dents to master the fundamental 
skills. The skills include reading. 
writing, arithmetic, and spelling. 
Every citizen in a democracy 
must be able to read intelhgently, 
speak correctly, write effectively 
and listen critically in order that 
he may direct his own thinking, 
communicate his ideas to others, 
and become a self directing in- 
dividual, as well as a contribut- 
ing member of society. 

The curriculum includes elec- 
tives such as Brick Masonry. 
Homemaking. Industrial Arts. 
French. Typing, Shorthand. Art, 
Music. Mechanical Drawing, 
Chemistry and Geometry. Elec- 
tives are selected by some stu- 
dents to meet vocational goals, 
by other students as enrichment 

At Sol Johnson, it is felt that 
a sound guidance program 
evolves from the cooperative 

planning and effort of the entire 
school staff, the student body 

and the parents. The Guidance 
Program is a combination of 
Special Services which the school 
provides for helping students in 
their school living; it is also 
designed to help them develop 
in their home living, and to help 
them develop into well-adjusted 
citizens: it provides opportuni- 
ties for helping students make a 
happy and satisfactory adjust- 
ment in the world of work. 

These special services are in- 
formation services. Testing serv- 
ices and counseling services are 
available. These services are 
carried out by a Guidance Com- 
mittee: teachers are appointed 
by the principal. 

Mrs. Melissa L. Miller, school 
counselor, serves as chairman of 
the Guidance Committee. Faculty 
members of the Committee are 
as follows: Orientation. Mrs, 
Sadie Steele; Cumulative 
Records, Mrs. Earlma Beckett, 
Mrs. Christine Robinson, Mrs. 
Mamie Hart; 

Testing, Mrs. Thelma Stiles, 
Louis Young, Melvin Marion:

tivities, Mrs, Berneatha Harris;

Blanche Miller, Fred Singleton;

Principal Alflorence Cheatham, 
and Assistant Principal Wade 
Simmons are constantly stressing 
that each student's achievement 
should be based on his highest 
capacity to learn. A testing pro- 
gram, both of the student's 
ability and his accomplishments, 
must be an integral part of 
teaching. Only through this 
means can teachers plan effec- 
tively for each individual stu-

My Kind of 

By Leford Tobias 

As we look upon the world 
situation, we become increasingly 
aware of an erosion, a crumbling 
of the principles upon which our 
forefathers founded this nation. 
We, as Americans, live our daily 
lives guided an dsupported by 
our dependence and reliance on 
certain eternal principles. These 
same principles were made an 
organic part of the foundation 
upon which our government was 
erected, and because of my 
objective view, I see signs of 
decay and weakening of the 

That we as Americans are 
united cannot be questioned; yet 
there are degrees of unity. We 
know that our hearts are one in 
support of freedom, truth, and 
brotherly love. To be alert means 
to take action as did our fore- 
fathers when danger threatened. 
Being vocal is asserting our God- 
given right. Clouded and vocal 
and we who can see more clearly 
must also be vocal in supporting 
the eternal values we love. We 
sound our death knell by idly 
waiting for leaders to lead: each 
of us must be a leader. 

A well-known and highly 
respected Senator recently said: 
"In th epast 25 years Congress, 
the administrative branch, and 
the judicial branch have done 
enough harm to what I consider 
the keystone of our Constitution 
—the tenth amendment. We 
have traveled too far down the 
path of centralized government 
and the welfare state. We have 
said too long to the American 
people: You cannot do this your- 
self. Let the people who work on 
the banks of the Potomac do it: 

"Wfe have poured in more peo- 
ple and more and more billions 
to let the people who work on 
the zanks of the Potomac do for 
the American people those things

The Savannah State College 
Library displayed an exhibition 
of sixty-three prints by the re- 
nowned American artist. Betty 
Waldo Parish of New York dur- 
ing the month of May. Miss 
Parish is a product of the 
Chicago Fine Arts Academy, The 
Julian Academy of Paris. France 
and the New School for Social 
Research of New York. She is a 
member of the Society of Ameri- 
can Grapliic Artists and the Na- 
tional Association of Women 
Artists. A winner of many prizes 
for her work, she was the re- 
cipient of the National Associa- 
tion of Women Artists award for 
the years 1939, 1946 and 1955. 
The Society of American Graphic 
Artists presented her an award 
in 1943. Her work has been dis- 
played in the Birmingham Public 
Library. Syracuse University 
Library. New York Historical 
Society Library, the British 
Museum and the Royal Museum 
of Brussels. 

The exhibition, on loan to the 
Savannah State College Library 
from the Grace Pickett Studio

Room of the College Library 
from May 8-20. 

The public was invited to view

which they do better for them- 
selves. We are putting a Federal 
Crutch under the arms of the 
people. We are taking away the 
bootstraps which Americans 
once grasped firmly and pulled 
on to make something out of 
themselves. We instill in the 
American people a baleful desire 
to rely upon the Federal Govern- 
ment for everything." 

"I am sick and tired of hearing 
both political parties in the 
United States say to the people. 
Look to Washington; forgetting 
what our forefathers said: 'Look 
to God : look to ourselves — we 
can do the job." 

"We are engaged in the 
destruction of our constitutional 
freedom. I have kept quiet long 
enough about these dangers. . . ." 

It would be a fine thing if the 
grass roots of glorious society 
would take it upon themselves 
to form committees for the pur-

Con.stitution and promote the

The Meaning of the Blues 

The Blues is as old as man. 

Every people have had some 
way of expressing thier inner 
thoughts, and if they did not 
call it blues or use the same 
form that we now call blues, they 
nonetheless had some direct 
means of self-expression. 

Even the word blues is much 
older than most of us realize. 

We tend to think of it as 
something that has risen in the 
last 50 years, like the word jazz. 
But the old superstitions talked 
about the blue devils, the bad 
spirits that come over you when 
you are feeling low. 

The music we call jazz is based 
on blues as a means of expres- 
sion. Jazz could never have come 
into being without the blues, and 
it will never exist without the 

All art, of course, has been 
devoted to self-expression. But 
there is a significant difference 
between art that is produced by 
virtusosi and art that is pro- 
duced by the people. It gives you 
the feeling and discipline to per- 
mit you to express yourself com- 

The blues was invented about 
50 years ago by the American 
Negro in the New Orleans area. 
Since its advent many concepts 
have been formulated into what 
we are presently familiar with. 
JAZZ (Modern and Progressize).

Altoist Gigi Gryce is deter- 
mined to have a standing group 
with a fresh sound. Often in the 
past the leader of small groups 
picked up for individual engage- 
ments, Gryce most recently 
fronted a quintet that featured 
six instruments. 

The new Gryce group, however, 
features the leader on flute and 
alto; Richard Williams, trumpet 
and fluegelhorn; Reggie Work- 
man, bass (Workman can also 
play cello and guitari; Richard 
Wyands, piano; and Mickey 
Roker. drums. 

This new group has been play- 
ing dates in Manhattan, includ- 
ing Monday night sets at Bird- 
land, the Cork 'n" Bib in the 
Village, and the Turbo Village in 

New to this country, a new 
trumpeter-composer has dug in 
his roots. He is Dizzy Reece. who 
plays a relaxed and lyrical kind 
of modern horn in the Miles 
Davis kick. 

Reece spent his first two weeks 
in the U. S. listening to other 
musicians, in clubs and else- 
where. Then he bega nto let him- 
self be heard, and formed his 
own group. 

Appearing on his first dates 
were Hank Mobley, tenor; Milt 
Sealey, piano; Doug Watkins, 
bass; and Art Taylor, drums. 
Dizzy's efforts on wax are really 
what's up. We believe he is 
evidently of fto a good start in 
what could turn out to be a re- 
warding year for Jazz,

straight year has won the Down

We are now in the midst of the 
most colorful season of the year, 
"Spring," Spring is the season 
of changes. Winter's lingering 
chills slowly fade away. May 
flowers are now making pleasant 
impressions. Along with nature 
fashions are changing too. 

The new look in sport coats 
this season is the washable, 
Madras-type plaids, and Seer- 
sucker cords. These are deftly 
cut with 3 buttons, natural 
shoulders, slender lapels and 
flapped pockets. True distinctive 
colors have been maneuvred to 
characterize the college man. 
Here you can get the (distinction 
of individualized tailoring, expert 
styling, at surprising prices as 
low as $29,95. 

Ail of us have used the ex- 
pression, "Keep a Cool Head," 
It's now possible to do just that 
wit hthe new "Raffia" straw hat. 
This hat is as light as you would 
like a straw, priced at $3.98. 
Made in Italy, it comes in five 
different colors: Brown, Blue, 
Black, Natural, and Tan, Why 
not get jazzy this Spring and 
break out with a cool straw? 

Spring is also the formal sea- 
son. On campus there are many 
fraternal balls that are semi- 
formal or formal. And last but 
not least the annual Junior- 
Senior Prom. As college men you 
are expected to dress formal. 
Psychologically you'll feel great 
in the romantic atmosphere you

Behind the Scenes 

By Leford Tobias 

"Behind the Scenes" takes you 
for a visit with Mrs. Gertrude P. 
Johnson. Mrs, Johnson is identi- 
fied with the nursing staff of 
Charity Hospital in Savannah. 

This very charming lady is a 
senior at Savannah State and a 
product of the local schools of 
Savannah, She received a certifi- 
cate from the high school de- 
partment of Georgia State In- 
dustrial College, now Savannah 
State, She is a member of First 
Bryan Baptist Church, located 
in Yamacraw Village. She is 
affiliated with the Eastern Star 
of the Prince Halt Jurisdiction 
of Georgia. Mrs. Johnson has a 
son, Louis H, Pratt, a product of 
Savannah State, now teaching at 
Todd Grant High School in 
Darien, Georgia. She has served 
for fifteen years as a Licensed 
Practical Nurse. 

The next stop during our romp 
behind the scenes will be . . . 
"Wait A Minute, since it's lunch 
time, how would you like a bite 
to eat? You would? Let's go to 
th eCoIlege Center." 

If its a sandwich or a coke or 
a shake you want, the ladies to 
see are Mrs. Susie M, Blake and 
Mrs. Mary Low at the College 

The College Center is open 
from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p,m. and 
you ca nbet that you will be 
served with the best care and 
smiles that will keep you coming 
back day after day. These two 
charming ladies con convert a 
common pork sausage into a 
delicious and mouth watering 
sandwich such as you've never 
seen before. 

The busiest portion of each day 
for these ladies is the noon lunch 
break. During this daily rush, 
they must keep on their toes be- 
cause at times there will be as 
many as thirty people at the 

in formal wear, there is a con- 
tinuing trend to higher style. 
Color and luster in fabrics, un- 
usual tailoring details of the 
jackets and patterned ties-and- 
cummerbunds provide a new and 
more colorful "look," 

To look your best, the new 
fashions in formal wear must fit 
properly — and be worn correctly. 
Jacket (White), Pants (black). 

1. Jacket collar should hug 
neck and show about \'- inch of 
shirt collar. 

2.Trouser legs should hang 
straight in back; slightly above 
top of shoe. 

3. Sleeves should be short 
enough to show about \'2 inch 
of the cuffs of shirt and cuff 

4. Never wear anklet hose 
whe nyou go formal. Wear socks 
high enough to conceal calf. 

5. Pin the cummerbund in po- 
sition with a safety pin to the 

6. Wear a pocket handkerchief 
but see that it shows neatly, not 
bulging out of pocket. 

Above are a few pointers on 
correct formal dress. 

Inattention to details can spoil 
your entire appearance. (The 
usual period for white formals 
is from May 1st to Labor Day.) 

Dress Tips: 

1. Always untie knot in a tie 
after using or before hanging 
up. Knots left in ties tend to 
spoil the shape. 

2, If the clips on bowties be- 
come loose, the tension can be 
increased with a pair of pliers. 

Dress Tips 

(II A suit has a better chance 
of recovering its shape when 
hung up if everything is taken 
out of the pockets— even the 
breast pocket handkerchief. 

(2i Try putting polish on your 
shoes at night and leave the 
shining until the next morning. 
The polish soaks into the leather, 
and prolongs its life. 

1 3 ) When wearing knit slim 
ties, try tucking fhe ends under 
your belt. This will keep you 
looking tact and progressive. 

Enjoy the new looks in leisure, 
dress and campus wears this up- 
coming year of exclusive styles. 
Make sure your selections are 
tailored for quality instead of 

The author suggests to those 
who seek to excel in appearance 
the three B's: "Be different," 
"Be clean," and "Be progressive."

SSC Te<iching Majors 
Do Student Tawhing 

According to Mrs. Thelma M. 
Harmond. Coordinator of Stu- 
dent Teaching at Savannah 
State College, forty-four ele- 
mentary and secondary teaching 
majors were assigned to school 
centers in Chatham, Laurens, 
Wayne. Glynn. Ware. Liberty and 
Mcintosh Counties to do student 
teaching for the Spring quarter. 

Student teaching is the final 
phase of a sequence of profes- 
sional experiences which are de- 
signed to promote pre-service 
teachers" understanding of the 
American school system, how 
clrildren grow, develop and learn 
and principles underlying good 
teaching- Evaluation of modern 
methods and materials to be 
used in teaching and providing 
opportunities for students to' 
have frequent contact with chil- 
dren of various age levels and in 
many kinds of situations are im- 
portant aspects of the profes- 
sional sequence. 

During a full quarter of stu- 
dent teaching, teaching majors 
at Savannah State College move 
from mere observers and part- 
time participants in classroom 
to the assumption of full-time 
bZLiidance of pupils' learning ac- 
nvities. This development, of 
'ourse, takes place under the 
iliiection and supervision of 
'.iimpetent teachers.

work, and their critic teachers:

8191,000 From 
Ford Foundation 

Northampton, Mass. (I.P.i — 
Smith, Mount Holyoke and Am- 
herst colleges and the University 
of Massachusetts have received 
collectively a grant of $191,000 
from the Ford Foundation to 
make possible a joint program 
for the further development of 
non-Western studies o nail four 
campuses. The institutions are 
neighboring ones and have a co- 
operative program among tliem- 

The grant is to be used over a 
period of approximately four 
years and will bring to these 
institutions specialists on Africa, 
the Near East and South Asia as 
visiting professors to give both 
lectures and courses, and to ad- 
vise on curricular development 
in these and allied fields. 

Some of the grant will be spent 
to release time for present mem- 
bers of the four faculties for in- 
struction in these areas; to 
strengthen library resources in 
these subjects; and to provide 
the necessary administrative ex- 
penses of a cooperative operation 
of this kind. The committee ex- 
pects to complete necessary pre- 
liminary arrangements this 
semester so that a three year 
program may commence in the

Concentrating on various as- 
pects of the teaching situation 
such as Planning, Motivation, 
Discipline and other topics, the 
potential teachers are trying to 
find workable solutions to the 
many problems facing the teach- 
ing profession. At the last weekly 
seminar session held at Savan- 
nah State College. Thurnell 
Johnson, Rose Ann Lanier, Hosie 
Harris and Evelyn Gordon, dis- 
cussed the problem of discipline. 
They agreed that discipline is a 
tremendous problem that cannot 
be worked out overnight. 

According to the quartet, be- 
havior is caused and it is the job 
of the teacher to search for 
causes rather than attempting to 
take short cut methods of ap- 
plying immediate, and in many 
cases, useless punishments 
Other groups will discuss similar 
problems at future seminars. 

Sleep and Rest For 
Emotional Vpset 

Just fifteen minutes a night 
can spell the difference between 
a refresliing night's sleep or a 
day spent yawning, the February 
Reader's Digest reports. Enough 
nights without adequate sleep, it 
adds, can lead to severe emo- 
tional and mental damage. 

Reporting on the results of 
recent scientific studies of the 
effects of sleep loss, Author ilob- 
ert O'Brien quotes Dr. Nathaniel 
Kleitman. nation's foremost au- 
thority on sleep: "If we do not 
get enough sleep, we cannot be 
fully awake during the day." 
When not fully awake, we are 
not in our right minds, O'Brien 

How much sleep is enough? 
Says Dr. George S. Stevenson of 
the National Association for 
Mental Health. "All human be- 
ings need a minimum of six 
hours' sleep to be mentally 
healthy. Most people need more." 

Scientists at Walter Reed 
Army Institute of Research, 
Washington, D. C, have deter- 
mined that a brain deprived of 
sleep will make any sacrifice to 
get it. After a few hours without 
sleep, the brain begins to "steal" 
fleeting seconds of slumber. As 
sleepless hours increase, the 
lapses become longer, perhaps 
three or four seconds. In a 
speeding automobile or on a 
complex job such lapses can 
spell disaster. 

Most common result of too 
little sleep is irritability, O'Brien 
reports. Frustration may be a 
major cause of this snappishness, 
according to Dr. E. J. Murray, a 
Syracuse University psychologist. 
When hunger for sleep is frus- 
trated, the effect is somewhat 
similar to snatching a juicy bone 
from a hungry dog. 

If you are a chronic stay-up- 
later, the Digest warns you'd 
better not rely on that proverbial 
"one good night" to put you back 
in shape. Dr. and Mrs. Graydon 
L. Freeman. Northwestern Uni- 
versity psychologists, found that 
at least two full nights and 
preferably more are necessary to 
bounce back from one four-hour

More Sleep," is condensed from

Bridgeport, Conn. (LP.) — A 
contribution of $79,800 from 
Charles Anderson Dana to pro- 
vide full tuition scholarships for 
36 students at the University of 
Bridgeport on a five year experi- 
mental basis was announced 
here recently by President James 
H, Halsey. 

Twelve Dana scholars will be 
selected in June from sopho- 
mores in the present freshman 
class. These students will be 
selected in September. 1961 and 
12 will be selected in September, 
1962, A total of 36 Dana Scliolars 
will be in attendance at the 
University at that time. 

Once selected the Dana 
Scholars will continue to receive 
scholarship assistance until they 
earn their baccalaureate degree, 
Dr. Halsey observed, providing 
that they continue to satisy the 
University's academic require- 
ments. The purpose of the 
Charles A. Dana scholarships to 
to identify and encourage stu- 
dents of academic promise who 
show potential traits of leader- 
sliip in business, industry and 
the professions, and who are in 
needs of financial assistance. 

Students must have completed 
at least one year of study at the 
University and must plan to con- 
tinue for the baccalaureate de- 
gree. "Dana Scholars may be- 
come to the University what 
Rhodes Scholars are to Oxford 
University," Dr Halsey observed.

The Spotlight 

By Yvonne McGlockton 

An interesting personality is 
that of Willie B. Lester. 

There is hardly a student at- 
tending Savannah State who 
does not know Lester. He plays 
an important role on this 
campus by giving much of his 
time and effort in service to the 
school and to his fellow school- 

Lester has been a key figure 
in several organizations ever 
since he entered this institution 
in 1956. At present he is Presi- 
dent of the Y.M.C.A. and the 
Senior Class. Superintendent of 
the College Sunday School, Vice 
President of the Social Science 
Club, Treasurer of Alpha Phi 
Alpha Fraternity and a member 
of the Student Advisory Commit- 
tee, and the College-wide English 
Improvement Committee. 

He is a native of Jefferson. 
Georgia and a graduate of Union 
Institute of Athens, Georgia. 
Presently he is a senior major- 
ing in Social Science and minor- 
ing in English. His ambition is 
to become a lawyer. 

Lester, a young man noted for 
neatness in dress, can be very 
well described as the intelligent, 
polite, executive type. 

Recently he was one of the two 
students selected by the College 
Y.M.C.A. to compete with stu- 
dents from other schools for an 
all expense paid trip to Russia 
this summer. 

Like most well-rounded per- 
sons, Lester devotes some time 
to hobbies. As a pastime he en- 
joys movies and fictional books. 

From all indications you have 
a great future ahead, Lester. 
May you continue to be success- 
ful and always remember that 
the "Spotlight" is on You.

By Charles S. Tootle 
This edition of the Tiger's Roar 
brings to your attention Ira 
Jackson, one of the most valu- 
able players on the Savannah 
State College Basketball Team. 
Jackson is a 6 foot 2'- inch 
Sophomore, majoring in Health 
and Physical Education. He is a 
graduate of Crane Tech High 
School, Chicago. Illinois, where 
he was active in basketball, base- 
ball and track. 

In 1959, as a freshman, Jack- 
son was voted to the all-con- 
ference team of the S.E.A.C. In- 
deed a more developed player 
this year, it is predicted that he 
will make the all-conference 
team again. 

Jackson, a soft spoken in- 
dividual, on and off the basket- 
ball court, has contributed much 
to the morale of his teammates. 
He has done so by exhibiting 
good sportsmanship and friend- 
liness while associating with 
members of the student body and 
players of other teams. 

Rarely does one find such an 
athlete that v/ill keep "cool and 
calm" in situations that should 
require one to do otherwise. 

Jackson is an asset to Savan- 
nah State as a basketball player. 
Hi.=s hobbies are dancing, golf, 
ping pong, reading and tennis.

Graduates from Savannah 
State College who prepared 
themselves in the area of the 
Natural Sciences are doing well 
in various jobs. Some are en- 
gaged in research work in 
health; some in industry; others 
have entered medical schools 
and are now practicing medicine, 
dentistry, or nursing: some are 
medical laboratory technicians; 
and still others are in the teach- 
ing profession. 

With Dr. Booker T. Griffith 
serving as its director, the Di- 
vision of Natural Sciences is 
ready to continue helping young 
people to prepare themselves for 
living. In natural science, one 
finds the department of mathe- 
matics and physics, headed by 
John B. Clemmons; chimestry. 
with C. V. Clay as its chairman: 
and biology, which is also di- 
rected by Dr. Booker T. Griffith,

of Filter-Blend — light, mild tobaccos specially

He knew that a pure white filter 
alone is not enough. To be a com-

Filter-Blend up front. And only 
Winston's got it! 

That's why Caesar would never

tells us he'd glower at the extended 
pack and sneer, "Et tii. Brute?" 
In a stirring peroration to his

member of the following student 
organizations: Student National

By Lena B. Thomas 

Several members of the Stu- 
dent National Educational As- 
sociation attended the annual 
State Meeting held on February 
5-6. at Paine College in Augusta. 
Georgia. The delegation was 
given a very hearty welcome 
upon their arrival. 

The meeting was Informative, 
inspirational, and stimulating. 
Miss Rhodes, one of our SNEA 
members, was elected State 
President for the year 1960-61. 
She is the second person of the 
Savannah State College Family 
to hold such office. The college 
can again be proud of its SNEA 

It is interesting to note that 
while the SSC delegation placed 
Miss Rhodes' name in the elec- 
tion pot. their group did not 
promote her for the office of 
president. The interviewing com- 
mittee, being highly impressed 
with Cynthia during the pre- 
liminary conference, saw fit to 
voluntarily submit her name for 
the presidency rather than for 
one of the lesser offices as sug- 
gested by her college fellows. 

The meeting was highlighted 
by a "Celebrities Banquet," at 
which time Mrs. Sadie D. Steele, 
Georgia State Teacher of the 
year 1959-60, gave the main ad- 

Persons attending the meeting 
were Misses Juanita Howard. 
President of the SSC SNEA 
Chapter. Vivian Sheffield. Nellie 
Shelman. Lula Young, Pauline 
Jordan, Willie M. Ruth, Cynthia 
Rhodes. Mr. Willie B. Lester, 
Lloyd Hawkins, and our advisor, 
Mrs, Dorothy C. Hamilton. 

By the way. did you note and 
read the pamphlets which were 
distributed during Religious 
Emphasis Week? That wa sthe 
work of your Student National 
Education Association. 

I hope this bit of news about 
our SNEA Chapter will encourage 
more of our students to become 
members and those who are 
members to become more active 
by attending meetings regularly.

"Spring's Short- Sleeves Assure 
Long Glove Success" 

Postive proof of the import- 
ance of the eight button glove 
for spring was underlined for 
the consumer by retail advertise- 
ments in New York newspapers 
showing the new short, open- 
sleeved suits and coats. 

This season, the belling sleeve, 
cropped to elbow length, came to 
the fashion scene, drawing the 
spotlight to the long glove. Wide 
open space left by these new 
cropped sleeves allows ample 
room for the graceful look of the 
long glove which can bring a 
wide expanse of color up the 
arm, or can be shirred gracefully. 
or elaborated witli embroidery — 
all of these without producing a 
cluttered look. 

The success of the eight- 
button length was confirmed in 
fall and holiday selling this past 
year. Its growing acceptance has 
brought it well on the way to 
classic status, rivaling the shortie 
and painting a rosy prospect for 
spring sales. 

In addition, the significance of 
color-neutralized in many cases 
— to accessorize the white and 
neutral colors reigning over the 
ready-to-wear scene, marks up 
a sharp point for the longer 
glove. It has an important 
fashion coordinating job to do 
this spring. 

From a style standpoint the 
eight-button glove has never 
been so pretty. It is strewn with 
embroidery, lace and eyelets. 

For fit. the longer version is 
elasticized at the wrist in pretty 
trapunto bracelets, with even an 
elasticized top in pursuit of the 
smooth, slim arm.

Dr. Williams Speaks 
At Assembly Projjtrain 

By Norman B. Elmore 
Dr, Elson K. Williams. Director 
of Summer School. Co-ordinator 
of General Education, and Pro- 
fessor of Social Sciences at Sa- 
vannah State College, addressed 
the college family at the All- 
College Assembly program June 
30, 1960. 

The speaker's address was en- 
titled: "The Real Quality of 
Man," Dr, Williams stated that 
"we should dedicate ourselves to 
the service of humanity and 
strive to eradicate the exploita- 
tion of background nations by 
powerful and imperialistic gov- 
ernments." He closed his address 
by asking the student body to 
join the crusade against com- 
munism which is a malignant 
threat to freedom and world 

Dr. Williams was introduced 
by Rev. A. E, Peacock, college 
minister. The music for the oc- 
casion was under the direction 
of Dr. C. A. Braithwaite, Chair- 
man of the Fine Arts Depart- 

Other points brought out about 
the continent is that Africa is 
a beautiful place and does not 
have an unfit climate as many 
believe. It is a cultural continent, 
and not a continent of laziness. 

There were a number of 
African-made articles placed on 
exhibition during and after 
Assembly. They included articles 
made of ebony and other woods 
and materials native to the 
continent of Africa. After the

Message from Student Council President 

Dear Fellow Students: 

Significant factors of our day indicate that all around us 
changes are self-evident. This spirit of throwing out the old and 
welcoming the new and better is present here on our campus also. 
The general concensus of opinion echoes the cry that this is the 
year to have a student council that is really on the job. 

This feeling represents a healthy attitude, for complacency has 
long outlasted its usefulness. Nothing new is ever experienced by 
this who are completely happy with the things that surround them. 

Your student council can only be as strong as the student body 
it represents. And in like manner, your leaders can only help 
whenever they are acquainted with your needs. For these two 
reasons, plans are now in progress for a permanent student council 
office. Regularly scheduled meetings of the entire student body 
are also in the making. None of these factors can be successful, 
however, without your loyal support. It is as a result of your 
support that I was chosen Student Council President, It is my 
earnest prayer that this same support that was previously shown 
will last throughout the school year and work to produce a record 
unequalled by any before and unattainable by any coming after us. 
Yours very sincerely, 
Student Council President 

Message from Summer 
School Director 

The Summer Quarter marks 
an articulate phase of the entire 
process of education at Savan- 
nah State College. It supple- 
ments and complements the ex- 
periences that are afforded dur- 
ing the regular school year. It 
enriches and invigorates the 
educational tone of the college. 
It provides for the immediate 
needs of the most diversified 
interests and talents. 

The standards of scholarship 
for the Summer Quarter are 
comparable in all respects to 
those of the academic year. The 
quality and quantity of teaching 
and learning, the educational 
preparation of the faculty, and 
the regular student body parallel 
those of the school year. In ad- 
dition, the educational back- 
ground of our in-service teachers 
I most of them have already at- 
tained a bachelor's degree and 
a few the master's degree) con- 
tributes substantially to an en- 
riched atmosphere for teaching 
and learning. 

The purpose of the Summer 
Quarter is stated in The Savan- 
nah State College Bulletin: 

1. To afford opportunities for 
teachers in service to complete 
degree erquirements; renew, up- 
grade, reinstate or reconvert 
their certificates; improve their 
professional status; and enrich 
their experience for personal 

2. To make it possible for stu- 
dents regularly enrolled to pur- 
sue their studies the year around, 
and consequently to complete 
degree requirements In less than 
the normal period of four years; 

3. To provide a program for 
entering .students 'freshmen) to 
begin their college work during 
the summer; 

4. To institute special work- 

The School Spirit at SSC 

By Yvonne McGlocicton 

After attending this institution 
for the past three years, it is 
quite evident that one of the 
greatest needs of our college is 
school spirit. Here the students 
take little interest in participat- 
ing in extra-curricular activities 
and as a result the school spirit 
is below par. 

This poor school spirit may be 
due to a lack of stimulation. 
Many of the campus activities do 
not stimulate enough interest 
among the students. They merely 
exist from year to year and make 
no beneficial contribution to the 

Poor school spirit can also be 
contributed to lazy students. In 
this category are those students 
who come to the institution with 
no intention of participating in 
anything that is not a require- 
ment. Let's hope that none of 
our students fall in this category. 

In the future let's try to im- 
prove the school spirit at this 
institution. Let's use more of our 
talents and skills for the benefit 
of the school. The school spirit 
is the life of a school. In order 
for Savannah State College to 
grow in the future, the school 
spirit must be improved.

cording to demands of all of the 
interested and qualified persons 
concerned; and 

5. To serve as a community 
college for all persons who are 
qualified to attend and are able 
to receive benefits from the 
college experience. 

The administration and faculty 
along with the facilities of the

scholarship, to facilitate learn- 
ing, and to provide the most 
desirable experiences for all who 
attend Savannah State College 
during this quarter.

Politics and World News 

The Editor S/M^ttks 

Prestige is largely a matter of 
feeling, suggestion, impression; 
and it depends primarily on the 
possession of leadership wliich 
each of us has acquired through 
the years. The fact of the matter 
is certain that all men have the 
quality of good leadership. 

Though there is something in 
what we call a "natural gift of 
authority." which cannot be ac- 
quired; it comes from the inner- 
most being of some individuals. 
and varies in each. The true 
leader, like the great artist, or 
singer is a man with inner 
propensity which can be 
strengthened by the exercise of 
his abilities. 

Students in college have a 
great opportunity to show and 
develop their leadership and 
other outstanding abilities. It is 
up to us to evaluate ourselves 
an dbring to the open these 
special interests. The training we 
are now being exposed to will 
no doubt develop our individual 
leadership and prestige. 
How To Be An Effective Leader: 

1 Always have a pleasant but 
stern personality. Meet new peo- 
ple, never stop speaking to those 
you know, 

2. Observe others carefully 
and make clear your objective 
as a leader. 

3. Be able to cope with factors 
in any situation. 

4. Insure yourself of self- 
confidence and determination to 
do a good job. 

5. Always establish an atmos- 
phere of calmness and alertness. 

6. Influence men's minds 
through speech, and dress. Al- 
ways create favorable impres- 

The above concepts are per- 
sonal speculations each one 
should possess. 

The responsibilities of a leader 
lies within one's self-determina- 

Once the leader has been 
judged capable of adding the 
weight of his personality to the 
known factors of any situation, 
the ensuring hope and con- 
fidence will add immensely to 
the faith resposed in him by 

Remember, to speak to the 
dilute one's thoughts, to give 
vent to one's ardor — in short, to 
dissipate one's strength whereas 
action demands all of these plus 

Strength of speech and inner 
determination will pave the way 
to greater heights of prestige 
and leadership. 

The Forthcoming 
iSational Election 

By James J. DeVoe 

Who are you going to vote for 
in November in the event that 
Richard Nixon and John F. 
Kennedy are the candidates of 
their respective parties? This 
question is very important in 
American political circles today. 
The Democratic candidate may 
be hindered by his age and re- 
ligion, although he showed con- 
siderable strength at the Demo- 
cratic National Convention by 
winning his party's nomination 
on the first ballot. 

On the Republican angle, a 
vast majority of the people be- 
lieve that Mr. Nixon is too con- 
servative. They further stressed 
that his party was to blame to 
some extent for the failure of 
the Paris Summit Conference. 
So, one can plainly see that Mr. 
Nixon too has some hurdles to 

All in all. discussing the situ- 
ation of the various candidates 
and their respective platforms 
will not help them, unless the 
American people go to the polls 
and vote in November. Talk is 
cheap; it's the vote that counts. 

Student Opinions of the Forth- 
coming Presidential Election: 
William Burton, senior: 
"I am definitely for Kennedy. 
His religion and youth should 
not be a major factor in this 
election, Mr, Kennedy is the 
man who will do a splendid job 
in the White House," 

Miss Roberta Davis, freshman: 
"I am going to vote for the 
candidate who will stress strong 
civil rights for the Negro popula- 

Thomas Farlow, junior: 
"I will vote for Mr, Nixon, be- 
cause I want to be on the 
winning side," 

Miss Shirley D Jones, junior: 

"One of the most important 
positions of the world is that of 
President of the United States. 
The next president should be 
able to accept responsibility in 
an Intelligent manner, and he 
should further stress more racial 
equality. I sincerely feel that 
this man is Mr, Nixon." 

Miss Mary D, Wilson, fresh- 

"I will cast my vote for Ken- 
nedy because I feel that he has 
a bright outlook on the future as 
far as the United States is con- 
cerned- He has freely voiced his 
opinions on vital issues and he 
seems to be able to handle the 
situation that Mr. Eisenhower 
failed to attempt," 

Mrs. Rosa Lee James, senior: 

"I am going to vote for Senator 
Kennedy, because he has suc- 
ceeded in helping to solve the 
unsettled state of world affairs." 

Miss Geraldine Spaulding, 

"In November. I will cast my 
vote for Senator John F. Ken- 
nedy, because he is an experi- 
enced leader who will channel 
the United States into an era of 
peace and security," 

Miss Ruby Futch, sophomore: 

"I am voting for Vice President 
Nixon, because I like the outlook 
of the Republican Party I also 
feel that Mr, Nixon has the ex- 
perience that it takes to carry 
on the responsibilities of the 
President of the United States."

National Sports 

By Charles S, Tootle 
For The First Time 

For the first time in history 
it has been done. I refer to the 
recent triumph gained by the 
young master Floyd Patterson. 
The youngster who roamed the 
streets of New York City has 
gained international fame by 
recapturing the heavyweight 
title of the world in dethroning 
the "'glamour boy," Ingemar 
Johansson, in the fifth round of 
their proposed fifteen rounder. 
June 20. 

The youthful Patterson says 
that for the first time he feels 
like a real champ. "This is easily 
the most gratifying moment in 
my life. 1 never for a moment 
thought of losing, but to win it 
this way — it's just perfect. I 
can't tell you how happy I am." 
were the words Patterson spoke 
after his great victory. 

When asked if he wanted to 
fight Patterson again, Johansson 
stared glassily and mumbled. "I 
don't know." 

So down in history goes 
another record among the many 
which have been made by "Tan" 

Sets World Record at Trials 

Also on our national scene we 
find that John Thomas of Boston 
University, during the Olympic 
trials held at Stanford, Cali- 
fornia. July 1 and 2, broke and 
made world records in the high- 

Thomas' jump of 7' S-'i" gave 
to him a spot on the U. S. 
Olympic team that will travel 
to Rome, Italy, When the an- 
nouncement was made concern- 
ing the jump, the crowd of some 
43,000 people rose to their feet 
and cheered him. 

Some believed that Thomas, 
after a not-so-long-ago "freak" 
accident on an elevator would 
never again be able to jump. 
However, this determined lad. 
who is in his "teens," has proven 
that he can set many more 
records before the "chips" go 

Thomas will be amidst but a 
few teen-agers who will ventm'e 
with this mighty team that the 
United States will send abroad. 
During the trials, thirteen try- 
out records were made and one 
tied in 17 events by Thomas. 

Can the United States sweep 
the meet in Rome':' Let us wish 
them luck.

Timely Thoughts 
For the Month 

Collected by Alphonso McLean 

If a man is worth knowing at 
all, he is worth knowing well,— 
Alexander Smith. 

To accept good advice is but 
to increase one's own ability. — 

Men's arguments often prove 
nothing but their wishes. — 

No bird soars too high if he 
soars with his own wings. — W. 

There should be as little merit 
in loving a woman for her 
beauty ,as a man for his pros- 
perity, both being equally sub- 
ject to change. — Pope. 

Remember that what you be- 
lieve will depend very much upon 
what you are. — Noah Porter. 

If you would know the value 
of money, go and try to borrow 
.some. He that goes a-borrowing 
goes a -sorrowing. — Franklin. 

Every time a man smiles, and 
much more when he laughs, it 
adds something to his fragment 
of life. — Sterne. 

Ideas control the world,— 

The reason why lovers are 
never weary of one another is 
this — they are always talking of 
themselves. — Rochefoucauld. 

The man that has a tongue, 
I say, is no man, if with his 
tongue he cannot win a woman. 

Progress is the activity of to- 
day and the assurance of to- 
morrow. — Emerson. 

The writer of this column 
takes pleasure in presenting in 
this edition two interesting per- 

One of the personalities is 
Carolyn Vinson, a junior, who 
hails from Savannah, Georgia, 
and is a graduate of Alfred E 
Beach High of this city. 

In the fall of 1958, Carolyn 
enrolled at Savannah State Col- 
lege and immediately became 
one of the college's active stu- 
dents. She joined the creative 
dance group, college playhouse, 
college marching band as a 
majorette, and the women's 
ensemble. In her sophomore year 
she added to her already long 
list of activities. Delta Sigma 
Theta Sorority. 

Carolyn proves the fact that 
extra-curricular activities and 
scholarship do go together. Every 
consecutive quarter since she has 
been at the college she has been 
on the honor roll. 

Attractive and debonair, Caro- 
lyn is the happy-go-lucky type. 
Her pet peeve is "I am not 
worrying." For enjoyment she 
has a variety of interests which 
include swimming, dancing, and 

At present she is majoring in 
Social Science with the ambition 
of becoming a social worker after 
she goes to graduate school. 

Another interesting personality 
is that of Nathaniel Johnson. 

Cooperative, courteous. and 
competent are three "C's" which 
adequately describe Nathaniel. 
He is always willing to give a 
helping hand and he is highly 
efficient in his work. 

Hailing from Savannah, Geor- 
gia, Nathaniel is a 1956 graduate 
of Woodville (Tompkins) High 
School of this city. Presently at 
Savannah State, he is a senior 
majoring in mathematics and 
minoring in physics. He is affili- 
ated with several campus organ- 
izations such as Beta Kappa Chi 
National Scientific Honor So- 
ciety I vice president). Alpha Phi 
Alpha Fraternity (Dean of 
Pledgees ) , Committee for Cur- 
riculum Improvement, and the 
Student Council (vice president). 

His favorite dishes are roast 
chicken and fried shrimp. As a 
pastime, he enjoys golf and 
tennis. His foremost ambitions 
are to obtain a civil service po- 
sition with the United States 
government, own a sports car, 
and marry Eleanor Johnson. 

The writer of this column 
takes pride in adding these two 
outstanding personalities to the 
Spotlight. May your abilities and 
attitudes continue to be reflected 
among your associates. 

Modern Art Is 

By Theodore Smith 

This is the first In a series of 
articles which will appear in the 
Tiger's Roar. The appreciation 
of art is generally not accepted 
as it should be. The purpose of 
this column is to cite new and 
old creations in art. 

The author wishes to remind 
the reader that he is not an 
artist and these articles will 
present modern art from a non- 
technical point of view. 

In order to generalize the Idea 
of modern art, one must include 
the progressive types of writings 
and music of our times. 

The phrase "Modern Art," is 
an image of a canvas covered 
with some arbitrary organiza- 
tion of lines and colors which 
at best confuses rather than 
clarifies the mind of the painter. 
Sometimes along with this im- 
pression there is a BEARDED 
who receives credit for creating 
a masterpiece, often called a 

Another impression of modern 
art might be a bar or a cafe at 
which the painters gather to 
exhibit their works to the inter- 
ested public. 

If anyone of these images is 
a true one, perhaps It might as 
well be considered all of these as 
the trend in art today. Art itself 
is the heart of a man who looks 
into the smallest expression of 
inner beliefs and truth and puts 
it on canvas In oil. It reaches out 
to capture the eye as well as 
human imagination. 

Modern art is many things to 
many men in different places. It 
is a way of expression and 
pleasure. How do you feel toward 
modern art? I sincerely hope you 
will evaulate my thoughts on the 
subject and follow this column 
in future issue of the Tiger's 

Nearly 50,000 Foreign 
Suideuts in U. S. Colleges 

More foreign students in the 
United States during 1959-60 
than ever before, the Institute of 
International Education reported 
in its annual survey released to- 
day. The 48,486 foreign students 
in American college classrooms 
this year continue to represent 
the largest foreign student popu- 
lation in the world. 

Actually, however, this year's 
increase is the smallest rise in 
the last six years. In 1958-59. the 
increase of foreign students over 
the previous year was 8.8%, 
whereas this year the rise was 
only 2.6%, This may be an in- 
dication that the heavy influx 
of foreign students each year is 
leveling off. 

On the other side of the two- 
way exchange, the traffic of 
American students going abroad 
increased a significant 34%,. 
Though part of this increase is 
attributed to better polling, more 
and more young Americans are 
discovering the rewards of a 
foreign academic experience. 

The movement of foreign 
faculty members who came to 
teach or do research and foreign 
doctors who served as interns 
and residents throughout our 
fifty states also accelerated this 
last year. The only decrease in 
any of the exchange categories 
surveyed was a 3.9%> drop in the 
number of American faculty 
teaching or conducting research 

These findings are revealed in 
the sixth edition of Open Doors, 
HE'S annual statistical report on 
educational exchange. The 41- 
year-old Institute is the world's 
oldest and largest multi-national 
exchange organization which 
itself administers programs in- 
volving more than 6,000 Ameri- 
can and foreign persons each 

The 48.486 foreign students in 
the United States this year came 
from 141 different countries and 
political areas and studied at 
1,712 institutions of higher learn- 
ing in every state of the Union, 
the District of Columbia, and 
Puerto Rico. Only 37%. of them 
were newly-arrived, in contrast 
with 1958-59 when 58% of that 
year's foreign student population 
began their studies here. Their 
favorite field of study, as in 
previous years, was engineering, 
and more than half of them 
were undergraduates. 

The largest number of foreign 
students (17,175) continued to 
come from the Far East and the 
second largest number < 9,428 1 
from Latin America, according 
to Open Doors 1960. For the sec- 
ond consecutive year, the 
rapidly - developing Near and 
Middle East sent more students 
(7-110) here for study than did 
Europe (6,362). While area per- 
centages vary only slightly from 
last year, both the Far East and 
Africa sent more students here 
for study than in 1958-59. 
Canada continued to be the 
single country sending the 
largest number of students to 
our shores.

Modern Trumpet Players 

"What Miles Davis showed us," 
says Art Farmer, who has de- 
veloped into one of the most 
warmly lyrical of modern jazz 
trumpet players, "was that you 
could play musically and get 
recognition without having a lot 
of a technique," 

Before Davis, of course, there 
were other jazz trumpeters who 
played spare, singing lines— 
among them, Bix Belderbecke, 
Joe Smith iwho was particularly 
expressive behind Bessie Smith), 
and Frankle Newton. Another, 
who has survived and is as 
judiciously eloquent as ever is 
Bobby Hackett. Farmer is im- 
pressed by Hackett's "fluidity 
and that full sound and feeling 
he always gets out of his horn." 
Miles Davis, who is more diffi- 
cult to please than any critic, 
is also a long-term Hackett ad- 
mirer. "He has such consistent 
taste," Miles said recently, "that 
he never gets tiresome." 

Art Farmer meanwhile Is the 
nominal leader of a brass-with- 
rhythm section sextet In BRASS

written two originals and five 
other arrangements that are 
thoroughly Idiomatic In their 
scoring for the three trumpets. 
two trombones, baritone horn, 
French horn, and tuba, Golson 
achieves a mellow brass sound 
in the ensemble passages with 
emphasis on the middle and 
lower ranges In contrast to the 
leaping of the Stan Kenton and 
Maynard Ferguson brass sec- 
tions. Out of Golson's subtly 
colored textures come several 
persuasive, thoughtful soloist be- 
sides Farmer, Among them are 
Curtis Fuller, trombonist and 
Julius Watklns, the only jazz 
player on French horn who 
doesn't sound as if he had 
strayed into the wi'ong studio. 

In BRASS SHOUT, there are 
also two intense trumpet solos 
by Lee Morgan, a breezily self- 
confident twenty - one - year-old 
who is more In the explosive 
tradition of Dizzy Gillespie and

The chapter has helped to 
make the dreams of others come 
true by giving a box of clothing 
to the Happy Home School for 
mentally retarded children of 
this city. We also gave a contri- 
bution to the Fight For Freedom

very good reason. They have 
been measured for caps and

Wilson, head of the Department 
of Secondary Education and

and to help them to become 
thoroughly acquainted with the 
Georgia science program. 

The group is now performing 
experiments in the Broad Area: 
Inanimate Matter — Water, Upon 
completion of work in this area, 
each member of the group may 
work independently on the prob-

Panel on School Library Standards, tntm Itti t>i ri:;ht' Mrs

Students Dist-uss New 

Library Standards 

Members of the Library 
Science Class, 302. School Library 
Administration and Organiza- 
tion, of Savannah State College 
presented an assimilated Tele- 
thon on the new school library 
standards which were published 
in March by the American 
Library Association, in the all- 
college chapel program, Thurs- 
day, July 7, Focusing attention 
on the new set of standards for 
school library-service, Library 
Science students pointed out to 
their fellow summer school stu- 
dents that the school library at 
both elementary- and secondary- 
school levels, has a vital part to 
play in supporting and promot- 
ing the aims of the total school 

These standards were de- 
veloped by the American As- 
sociation of School Librarians, 
working with representatives of 
twenty other educational organ- 
izations. They set forth the 
principles and goals of an effec- 
tive library program and describe 
the basic requirements of its 
realization. Dr. Frances Henne, 
Associate Professor in the Co- 
lumbia University Library School 
and Miss Ruth Ersted, State 
School Library Supervisor in 
Minnesota, who served as co- 
chairmen of the School Library 
Standards Committee of the 
American Association of School 
Librarians, succinctly depict the 
standards as follows: "The pri- 
mary purpose of the standards 
is to describe the school library 
resources and services needed to 
provide quality education for 
children and young people and 
to present guide lines for de- 
veloping school library programs 
of this nature : the standards 
therefore focus on library pro- 
grams that contribute directly 
and effectively to the achieve- 
ment of the objectives of these 
schools. They must be considered 
in relation to the objectives of 
schools and not in an isolated 
or artificial fashion as though 
they referred to a library pro- 
gram set apart from the school 
as a whole." 

Students who appeared on the 
Panel represented a wide variety 
of backgrounds. The following 
in-service teachers participated; 
Mrs. Albertha Vaughns, Savan- 
nah; Mrs, Jewell C, Robinson, 
Orange County, Florida ; and 
Mrs. Lucy G. Solomon, Savan- 
nah. Two teacher-librarians who 
were enrolled and actively par- 
ticipated were Mrs. Carrie May- 
nor, Screven County, and Mrs, 
Mattie Hicks, Liberty County. A 
public librarian in Pierce County, 
Florida, Mrs. Rachel Meeks. also 
served on the panel. Under- 
graduate students who partici- 
pated on the program were Miss 
Vera Adkins and Miss Minnie 
Ruth Smith who are seniors. E. 
J. Josey, Librarian and Associate 
Professor, was the instructor of 
the course in School Library Ad- 
ministration and Organization. 

SSC Students at 
New York Child 
Care Center 

By Yvonne McGlockton 

Eleven of Savannah State Col- 
lege students have been em- 
ployed with the New York 
Migrant Child Care program for 
the summer. They are Zadia 
Brown. Hattie Burton, Almarie 
Glover. Verdell Lambert, Drucilla 
Moore. Ella Marie Phillips, Vir- 
ginia Norris, Ruby Sims, Mar- 
guerite Tiggs, and Vernita 

These students will serve as 
directors, assistant directors, and 
group leaders at one of the 
twelve migrant centers which 
are sponsored by the state of 
New York in collaboration with 
the New York Growers and 
Processors Association. 

The centers which are man- 
aged solely by college students, 
afford great opportunities for 
experince in planning and di- 
recting- activities for children of 
all ages. 

Last year four students from 
this institution worked with the 
program. Among them was Alice 
Kight, a June graduate, who

Senor Jason's 
Spanish Workshop 

By Rachel E. Thomas 
In-service teachers and regular 
students were given the oppor- 
tunity to increase their Spanish 
speaking talents and gain new 
skills in the six weeks Spanish 
Workshop offered this summer. 
Many experiences were gained 
through the very capable leader- 
ship of Senor Howard Jason, 
Associate Professor of languages 
and literature. 

The course began on June 15. 
I960 with these principal pur- 
poses in mind: il) to increase 
the student's competence in the 
language; (2) to acquaint him 
with methods and materials for 
teaching this course; (3i to give 
him some insight into Spanish 
life and civilization; and i4) to 
point out to him the urgent need 
today for Americans to study 
foreign languages, in the hope 
that he will carry the message to 
his students and to the people 
in his community. 

The course aimed to have the 
students speak, listen, and read. 
and write as much Spanish as 
possible. The methods employed 
were: lU to have both teacher 
and students use Spanish as 
much as possible; i2) to have 
students make tape recordings 
of their own speech, replay the 
tapes and analyze their pro- 
nunciation; i3) to make a sec- 
ond recording to determine the 
improvements made; and (4i to 
practice reading assignments on 
which the students are asked 
questions to be answered either 
orally or written in Spanish. 
Other techniques used were 
dictations, work on chalkboards, 
free compositions on subjects 
that had been discussed orally, 
lectures, and films in which the 
students had opportunities to 
express their thoughts and

At Senior Class Day Exereises 

The senior class of June. 1960, presented "Senior Class Day 
Exercises" in the All-College Assembly in Meldrim Auditorium. 
Sherman Roberson, a chemistry major, was the principal speaker- 

Mr. Roberson spoke on the topic, 
■■Being a senior means stepping 
out into a world where the color 
lines are being erased and an 
individual will be judged on 
merit instead of pigmentation of 
skin. If we as seniors are to suc- 
ceed upon departing from our 
beloved Alma Mater, then God 
Almighty must be our constant 
companion. As seniors, we are 
obligated to ourselves and God 
to fight for those things we feel 
are right, because if we do not. 
we will be dead even though we 
yet live." These are some ex- 
cerpts from Mr. Roberson's

Wares From Caribljeaii Countries Exhil)ited at SSC 

Mrs. Evanel Terrell, instructor 
of the Family Life Course which 
toured and made a survey of 
contemporary family patterns of 
selected Caribbean Countries, 
has loaned various materials 
collected by members of the tour 
for display in the Seminar Room 
of the Savannah State College 

Among the items on display 
are Annual Report of the De- 
partment of Education of the 
Virgin Islands. University of 
Puerto Rico's report on a Sum- 
mary of Public Housing and 
Urban Renewal Programs in 
Puerto Rico, several publications 
depicting public education in the 
Dominican Republic, a report of 
the Department of Labor and 
Social Welfare of Haiti, various 
reports from Jamaica, and 
several background studies of 
family life in the Caribbean 

Examples of Adult Education 

arts and crafts projects of 
weaving from Jamaica are ex- 
hibited. These projects are in- 
dicative of the Caribbean pro- 
gram of adult education which 
is geared to making the people 
economically secure. Haitian 
records featuring Guy du Rosier, 
leading Haitian musician and his 
orchestra, may be seen. The 
ladies of the course could not 
resist returning to America with- 
out the famous Khus Khus per- 
fume which may be viewed. Two 
outstanding examples of public 
school art graphically reveals 
the new interest in art as part 
of education in Haiti. Weaving 
craft from Haiti, and beads 

made from coffee beans and 
castor beans are included. 

Fine needle work from Haiti 
delighted the ladies on tour, and 
excellent examples are on dis- 
play. Industrial Art from the 
Dominican Republic makes for 
delightful viewing, A frond from 
a coconut tree in Puerto Rico is 
rather picturesque. Sisal fiber, 
a type of material for weaving 
mats, table runners, hats and 
bags, are shown in a variety of 
colors. Pillow cases on exhibition 
will show the intensiveness of 
creative art training in Home 
Economics in St. Thomas, Photo- 
graphs of various activities 
which the members of the tour 
engaged indicate the busy sched- 
ule followed by them.

lege president, fifteen dollars in 
behalf of the workshop class to 
be used for the National Educa- 
tional Defense Loan Fund, 

"Significant changes in edu- 
cation and resulting changes for 
teacliers in Georgia Schools" 
was the topic of his address. 
He spoke of the changes in edu- 
cational requirements and the 
increase in salaries for teachers 
in Georgia. The number of chil- 
dren entering school each year 
continues to increase and at the 
same time the number of drop- 
outs in school continues to in- 
crease also. The primary reasons 
for the drop-outs, stated Mr. 
Martin, are inadequate curricula 
and unsatisfactory student- 
teacher relationship. 

He concluded his address with 
these comments : "Everyone 
certified to teach is not quali- 
fied to teach and knowing how 
to teach is not knowing what 
to teach." 

Mrs, Dorothy C. Hamilton, Sa- 
vannah State College instructor, 
introduced Mr. Martin and Mrs. 
Lela W, Stone presided through- 
out the program. Music was 
furnished by Dr. C. A. Braith-

"A World of Dreams" Homecoming 
Theme at Savannah State for 1960 

On October 15. 1960. Savannah State College will hold its 
annual homecoming celebration. 

According to Frank Thorpe, chairman of the homecoming com- 
mittee and marshal for the parade, plans are being made for a 
gala homecoming celebration. 

The theme for this year will 
be "A World of Dreams." This 
theme was selected from the long 
list of themes which were sub- 
..iitted because of its broadness 
and flexibility. 

The celebration will begin 
with the parade which will leave 
the campus at 10 a.m. Partici- 
pating in the parade will be 
student organizations that are 
registered on the campus, alumni 
associations throughout the 
state, and other organizations 
connected with the school. The 
bands will include local and 
visiting high school bands. 

Quality and not quantity 
will be stressed this year accord- 
ing to the parade marshal. In 
an effort to make this the best 
homecoming parade ever pre- 

sented, he is asking all who plan 
to participate to begin work on 
their decorations early and allow 
ample time to perfect them. 

As usual trophies will be given 
^o the first, second, third, and 
fourth place winners in the car. 
float, and band competition. A 
trophy will also be given for 
the best decorated building. 

After the parade promptly at 
2 p.m, the S.SC. Tigers will play 
Morris College of Sumpter, S. C, 
on the S.SC. Athletic Field. 

Other activities of the day will 
include the National Alumni 
Meeting and the homecoming

coming will include the "Miss 
S.S.C," Coronation Ball, and the

Today, it is important that many people be able to hit the 
"bull's eye." In all aspects of life now the need for accuracy is in- 
creasing far moie rapidly than one suspects. That condition is 
evident when one considers the number of automobile accidents, 
the development of machines, directions for operating mechanical 
devices, and the great variety of instructions for doing or making 
things. In many instances the success of the undertaking depends 
upon the degree of accuracy observed by the individuals in the 

Accuracy in performance is related to timing, speed, aims and 
objectives, and habits possessed by the individual under considera- 
tion. The achievements in the mechanical world in the last decade 
have emphasized the necessity of accuracy at every stage of the 
development. Missiles and outer-space projects have dramatized 
this quality. At no other time in the history of mankind has there 
been greater demand for planning and following what has been 

In the colleges and universities of our country many students 
are apparently unmindful of the changes and significance of the 
changes that are in progress. This is reflected in the manner in 
which they live during their college careers. It is doubtful that 
many have plans that lead beyond the awarding of the bacca- 
laureate degree. When it is possible to complete the college course 
In three calendar years rather than four academic years, the 
student saves time and arrives at his next point a year ahead of 
the traditional group. When his studies have been planned in 
terms of his proposed career, and his habits of study and achieve- 
ment have been developed with full awareness of their role in life, 
the expectd outcomes can be predicted to a considerable degree 
of accuracy. 

Planning with accuracy is not to be thought of in terms of the 
natural sciences and mathematics only. The same habits of study 
and techniques are required for the successes which one desires in 
the humanities, social sciences, and the professions. All phases of 
living today require a similar approach. The relationships among 
the various fields of study require the balancing of all phases of 
our life Into a unified thrust for the highest achievement of man.

Message from Stufleiit Council President 

tentatively set for October 13 

Dear Fellow Students: 

Several very well known cliches 
could be used to describe the 
enormous task that awaits our 
immediate attention upon re- 
turning to school on Friday, 
September 23. One glance at our 
tentative schedule and you will 
agree that in order to accom- 
plish these feats all of us are 
going to have to work long and 
hard to reach our goals. 

The most Important item con- 
fronting the student body at 
large is the extensive prepara- 
tions that are necessary for the 
Homecoming activities. Please 
do not be caught sleeping. The 
time factor is an element of 
great importance leading up to 
the Homecoming date. The 
Homecoming date has been set 
for Saturday, October 15. at 2:00 
P.M. The events prior to this 
affair are equally as important 
a,s the affair itself. Therefore, 
the Coronation Ball and the 
bonfire must also be a success.

Ball and the bonfire have been

SSC Offers Great Opportunities 

In Teclniology — Class Bi^ji^ins in Fall 

students entering the technical program this fall will begin 
classes in Savannah State Colleges' new million dollar Technical 

The types of technical program offered leading to a Bachelor 
of Science degree in technology are as follows: 

I, Automotive Technology — 
Auto Repairs, Auto Body Re- 
building. Machine Shop Train- 

II, Building Construction 
Technology — Building Construc- 
tion. Masonry. Plumbing, Sur- 
veying and Estimating. Me- 
chanical and Architectural 

III, Electronic and Electrical 
Technology — Electric Repairs 
and Instruction, Communication 
System Repairs, Radio and TV 
Repairs and Installation. 

The following fields offer a 
great opportunity for employ- 
ment as technicians: Automotive 
Technonogy. Building Construc- 
tion . Electric Power. Diesel. 
Chemical. Instrumentation, Air 
Conditioning, Aviation Elec- 

Today there is an urgent need 
for people with special skills and 
training to translate scientific 
ideas and discoveries into useful 

products and services. This is 
the role of the technician. 

The technician is a special 
kind of person. In certain fields 
he assists in planning develop- 
ment work, estimating, research 
work and is often called upon to 
perform jobs ranging from 
simple testing projects to tasks 
requiring a high degree of 
creative technical talent. 

Economically technology in- 
creases productivity, sharpens 
competition, raises earning 
power and lowers prices. Tech- 
nology is teaming up with other 
sciences to give America more 
goods which requires more jobs 
in the technical world. 

Savannah State College will 
now be able to train more com- 
petent technicians than ever 
before to meet the demands of 

our community, nation, and

Another important deadline 
that needs your immediate at- 
tention is September 30. That is 
the last day for submitting the 
names of the queens and attend- 
ants for all student organiza- 
tions. Please observe that this 
date is very close to the open- 
ing of school and because of this 
it would be wise for all organi- 
zations to submit the names of 
the persons who will represent 
them to the office of student 
personnel for clearance as soon 
as possible. 

Although, we have not re- 
turned to the days of the pony 
express and other such obsolete 
ways of doing things, one might 
find it necessary to order ma- 
terials and fashion items for 
queens and other things by mail. 
This condition should serve as 
a basis for your beginning your 
duties very early. 

Here again are the dates that 
must be remembered: 

September 30— Last day for 
submitting the names of the

been observing the terror-in- 
fested uprisings in Leopoldville, 
Stanleyville, and other cities in 
the Congo. It seems logical to 
think that with their recently 
received independence from 
Belgium, the Congolese people 
would be instilled with a strong 
feeling of security and national 
unity. But instead, they are a 
nation resorting to national dis- 
unity, educational incompetence. 
and political chaos, since the 
proclamation of their independ- 
ence by Belgium on June 30. 

To many of the natives of the 
Congo, the word freedom is a 
permit which gives them the 
right to exploit those who were 
once in power. They possess no 
sense of shame or responsibility. 
Some Congolese people think 
that their working days are over 
and that the maintenance of law 
and order is a thing of the past. 
They were being led into the 
ways of life enjoyed by civilized 
people and at the same time 
they were being exploited by 
their trainers, the Belgian peo- 
ple. Some of the native leaders 
saw what the white men were 
doing, and led revolts against 
them. The exploitation of the 
Congo by the white man is the 
main cause of the unrest which 
has terrorized the country since 
her emergence as an independ- 
ent nation. 

The Belgians must be chastized 
for giving the Congolese people 
full independence when they 
were not educationally and 
politically prepared to accept the 
responsibility of self-govern- 
ment. But. they cannot go back 
and take over again, because 
such action would only tend to 
rupture the situation and ignite 
a world crisis. Perhaps, the 
United Nations can guide the 
Congo to eventual unity and 
political success. The United 
Nations' forces have already 
restored law and order in many 
of the cities in the Congo and 
they have also begun the task 
of reorganizing the nation's ad- 
ministrative system. Without the 
United Nations' assistance the 
situation in the Congo would be

August. 1960 



By Charles Tootle 

About this time of the year, 
in our free world, all eyes are 
usually turned toward that 
favorite past-time sport of base- 
ball. Everyone usually follows 
the team of his choice and what 
his favorite player is producing. 

Thus far, the 1960 season has 
not been too much of an ex- 
ception to previous baseball sea- 
sons. Yet. the games have been 
close mainly because of the 
efforts of some outstanding 
players booming bats. 

The National League has in- 
deed showed the strength of its 
many hitters. Let us examine for 
a moment Hank Aaron of the 
Milwaukee Braves. What's in a 
name? To some pitchers such as 
Roebuck of Los Angles, Mc- 
cormick of San Francisco and 
Elston of Chicago, the name 
Aaron means a lot. It could 
mean the difference between 
winning or losing a ball game. 

As of July 23. Aaron had a 
blistering 20-game hitting streak 
as the Braves came within one 
and one-half games of the 
league's leading Pittsburgh 

Aaron also had increased his 
runs batted-in by seven. On two 
successive days, he homered, one 
of them a 450-foot grand 
slammer into County Stadium's 
center bleachers to help defeat 
the St. Louis Cards 3-0, 

Yes. what is a name? We all 
know that the name is what you 
make it and indeed Orestes 
'Minnie) Mlnoso has made his 
name known throughout the 
U. S. and his native land. 
Rumors have it that the Chicago 
White Sox went into first place 
recently in the American League 
because of the bat of Minoso. 

This Cuban outfielder has kept 
the Wliite Sox in the running 
throughout the year and re- 
cently batted in several key 
runs that enabled the White 
Sox to roll over the Yankees. 

These are but a couple of our 
"tan" stars who are forever 
showing that we are not the 
mferior race that we are clamed 
ro be. They are but a few of our 
many "tan" stars who excell in 
their endeavors as ball players 
and Americans, 

This issue, we salute tliese 
two fine ball players and all the 
others of whom this column 
could not cite individually. May 
they continue to do as well as 
they have done. 

Preview of Campus Athletics 

This year with Homecoming 
being the 15th of October, and 
somewhat earlier than last year. 
the "Fighting Tigers" will have 
their work completely cut out 
for them when they return to 
campus September 1 to start 

The question is whether or not 
the 1960 team will be ready to 
take on such feat that early 
in the season. 

Last year, the "Tigers" traveled 
to Morris College with return- 
ing lettermen: Captain Elijah 
McGraw, John Strong, John 
Owens, B. C. Carswell. Eddie Bell 
and others and settled for a tie. 
The "Tigers" this year cannot 
overlook the fact that Morris 
College was rostering a near 
Sophomore team. Neither can 
they overlook the fact that Sa- 
vannah State will have about 
the same team that let Morris 
tie them last year, however, 
there will be a few additions to 
both teams. 

At this point it is very diffi- 
cult to say what the outcome of 
this year's Homecoming game 
will be, but why don't all of us 
help to make this be the year 
that everyone has been looking 
for — a record of 9 wins and no 
losses, by coming out and cheer- 
ing your team to victory. Moral 
support is a vital factor in any

This fall hats will be fashion 
items rather than fashion ac- 
cessories and they are going to 
all heights to prove it. 

This fall's surprise element 
with the height in hats is the 
new width which gives both 
brimmed and brimless varieties 
increased proportions and more 
flattering outlines. The big hats 
will be round on the curve line 
with the bomb or bubble shape 
leading. Peaks will reach sky- 
ward spiral-like. 

Isn't it bad that as soon as 
we get adjusted to the 1960's we 
are pushed back into the 1930's. 
For you who have taken your 
hemlines up. you can haul 'em 
down again. Look forward to 
skirts being one to two inches 
longer than last year. 

Yes. we will be off on a new 
cycle which this fall will mean a 
lot of return to the old. Besides 
skirts being longer, you can look 
to the revival of the sleek 
straight hair-dos, the hair- 
covering hats, the drap-around 
coats, and the loosely-fitted 
silhouette. The four major 
silhouetes will be: the figure 
eight, full through the bust and 
hips and narrow at the waist; 
the bloused look, loosely jacketed 
around the midsection and 
gathered tightly over the hips; 
the diamond, bukly through the 
shoulder area and tapered to a 
narrow hem; and the fitted 

Above all, look forward also to 
the wrap-around look. Coats 
will not only be clutched to- 
gether at the front to keep out 
the winter breezes, but they also 
will have huge, fur- trimmed 
collars wrapped high and close 
about the neck,

In this issue. I have decided 
to feature one of Spain's most 
prominent artists. He is the 
famous Senor Pablo Ruiz Picasso. 
He received his artistic training 
at the Academy in Barclona and 
traveled throughout the world 
exhibiting his art. 

If you are planning a trip to 
Cleveland, Ohio in the immedi- 
ate future visit the Museum of 
Art and see his painting "La 
Vie," a work sentimental in 
subject and treatment. Also at 
the Art Institute in Chicago, one 
can view his "Family of Salti- 
muanques." Those of you who 
may travel South of the Border 
following summer school may 
observe Picasso's beautiful 
murals on the wall of the Uni- 
versity of Mexico. Such beautiful 
murals as the "Guermia. " paint- 
ed in 1937 for the Spanish 
Pavilion at the Paris exposition, 
can be seen there. 

For a very good look at Senor 
Picasso and his contributions to 
modern art, read Picasso:"Fitty 
Years of His Art." by Alfred H. 
Barr. Jr., Museum of Modern 
Art 1946.

A Tribute to the Immortal 

Charlie Parker 

One of our greatest chapters 
in Jazz came to a close on Satur- 
day, March 12. 1955 when Charlie 
Parker passed away. 

Charlie "The Bird" Parker 
was born in Kansas City, August 
29, 1920, He began his instru- 
mental training with the bari- 
tone saxophone in his school 
band and played with orchestras 
of Harlan Leonard and Lawrence 
Keyes, In 1942 he joined Jay 
McShann with whom he came 
to New York, New York is some- 
ties called the Jazz City of the 
world. It was there Charlie be- 
gan to dig his roots in modern 
jazz. After he left the McShann 
group the word got around that 
a new swinging Alto Sax man 
was on the scene from Kansas 
City. It was then "The Bird" 
teamed up with Kenny Clark 
and Thelonius Monk at Minton's 
and Clark's uptown house. Later 
he blew with Earl Hine's Orches- 
tra which featured Dizzy 
Gillespie. Benny Harris, and 
Billy Eckstine. Now Charlie was 
gaining greater insight of other 
musicians and how they worked. 

During the years 1944-ij4 
Charlie began to compose his 
own tunes such as: Chasing the 
Bird, Milestones. Bluebird, Bird 
Gets the Worm, Romance With- 
out Finance. Marmaduke. Half 
Nelson, Sipping At Bells, Red 
Cross and many others. Featured 
with "The Bird" on later sides 
were such great musicians as: 
Miles Davis, trumpet, Tommy 
Potter, bass, Max Roach, drums, 
Bud Powell, piano. Dizzy 
Gillespie, trumpet and piano, 
John Lewis, piano, Curley Rus- 
sell, bass and others. It did not 
take long for the Jazz world to 
find out about the new giant on 
Alto Sax, Parker's improvisions 
and interpretations created one 
of the greatest transitions in 

Charlie "The Bird" Parker 
created and left with us SOUL, 
one of the vital and essential 
elements of modern and pro- 
gressive Jazz.

Instrument of Expression." Dual 
sports, social and square dances 
were employed to carry out the 
above theme. 

Badminton played by Misses 
Margaret Dawson and Essie 
Sheffield began the performance. 
The game was followed by the 
dance, "Honolulu Baby." For this 
dance the ladies were attired in 
very colorful and authentic 
Hawaiian Muu Muus while the 
men were dressed in white short 
sleeve shirts, white duck pants 
and sported a decorative red 
handkerchief from their back 

Between this dance, the 
audience enjoyed a lively game 
of shuffleboard played by Marlon 
Dingle and William Hall. Then 
the dance, "Texas Star," was 
executed. Here again the young 
ladies were colorfully attired. 
They had made a quick change 
and were wearing various color 
crepe paper skirts, white blouses, 
white socks, gym shoes and leis. 

John Gray and William Hagin.s 
fascinated and held the interest 
of the audience. The audience

which consisted of William

Lavenia Jenkins. Roland James,

group would have responded to 
the encore if time had permitted. 
After watching an exciting 
fencing event between Richard 
Coger and Albert King, some of 
the participants executed the 
lovely and graceful waltz. Here 
our dancers made a big change. 
The young ladies wore semi-

84th Baccalaureate 
Services at SSC 

The Eighty-four Baccalaureate 
Services of Savannah State Col- 
lege was presented in Meldrim 
Auditorium Sunday. August 14. 
1960 at 5:00 P.M. 

Fifty-nine expected graduates 
heard the Baccalaureate sermon 
delivered by Rev. Joshua 
Reddick, pa.stor of Palen Meth- 
odist Church of this city. 

Speaking on the subject "Man 
Cannot Live by Bread Alone," 
Rev. Reddick informed the 
graduates that a person who has 
something to offer the world 
will find a pattern already cut 
out for him. but he cautioned 
the graduates that they must 
not merely fall into the pattern, 
but mvist make a contribution. 
It's up to the individual to fit. 
cited the Methodist Minister. 

Rev. Reddick asked the gradu- 
ates several questions. One ques- 
tion, "What will you do with the 
opportunities that are before 
you?" was examined and 
thoroughly disected by the Sa- 
vannah Minister. 

In closing, the Minister 
warned the graduates that all 
people have limitations, but each 
person must learn to accept him- 
self for what he is and not for 
what others think of him. 

"We have three selves," ac- 
cording to the Minister, the real 
self, the preferred self and the 
ideal self.

Savannah State College Sum- 
mer Chorus under the direction 
of Dr. C. A. Braithwaite. and the

Savamiah State College Ila* Keeord 
Breaking Enrollment For 1960 

Ben IngersoU, college registrar, has released figures to show 
that the Savannah State College Fall Quarter enrollment has in- 
creased 60% over last year. The total college enrollment is the 
largest in the history of this institution which was founded in 1890. 
The freshman enrollment for tories and other facilities on 
the Fall Quarter, 1959, was 253 as campus. 

The overcrowded situation is 

compared with 412 for this year, 
an increase of 60%. During the 
1959 Fall Quarter, 637 upper- 
classmen returned to the 
campus. This year 714 upper- 
classmen returned for an in- 
crease of 12%. The total college 
enrollment of 1,126 for the 1960 
Fall Quarter is an increase of 
15.16% over the Fall Quarter, 
1959, figure of 890. 

The increase in the enrollment 
has resulted in crowded dormi- 

especially noticeable during the 
chapel hour at which time a 
large portion of the student body 
is left without seats in the audi- 

This is a sign of progress, and 
the Savannah State College 
family is happy to know that it 
is growing. However, it is hoped 
that in the near future, the col- 
lege facilities will be enlarged 
to meet the college's growing

less, the Tigers moved for four 
first downs to their 41, after 
which Robbins punted to Fort 
Valley's 9. 

Tigers Tie Score:: Strong car- 
ried three successive times for 
gains of 5. 20, and 35 yards 
placing the ball on the Wildcats' 
3 yard line. The first attempt 
for the TD failed but on the 
next play, fullback George Sims 
went off guard for the score, 
the conversion attempt again 
failed, and the score stood at 
Fort Valley State 12, Savannah 
State 12, 

Fourth Quarter 

Both teams threatened, only 
to have their offense stopped 
by each others fine defense. 

Then came the game's most 
spectacular play. Nelson's toss 
intended for McGraw, was 
picked off by Allen who used 
every trick in the book in an 
attempt to break away only to 
be stopped by the last man, John 
Strong. The Tigers took over on 
downs. Nelson attempted three 
passes, completing one to Mc- 
Graw for 30 yards only to have 
the clock run out. 


Quarterbacks Dennis Nelson and Bobby Dunbar smile in agree- 
ment on the game tactics of the season.

Presidents Message 

Savannah State College is glad to observe Annual Homecoming 
each year. The greeting of alumni, former students, and interested 
friends is one of the highlights of the academic year. Since it 
comes in the Fall, it furnishes inspiration and drive to reach higher 
standards and new achievements. 

As we greet our alumni, new acquaintances, and friends of long 
standing, we are conscious of two vital processes. On the one hand, 
there is always something to see; while on the other hand, there 
IS something to feel. Each year friends and visitors returning to 
the College are able to see a number of additions to and improve- 
ments in the physical plant. The College is continuing to upgrade 
its physical facilities and to construct new facilities in the light of 
present day needs and programs. 

Everyone who experiences homecoming understands that there 
is something to feel. In most instances it is not possible to touch 
it with the body. This group of items is communicated through 
the academic atmosphere and tone of the institution. One discovers 
this as he moves among the students, faculty, staff, and members 
of the college community. This feeling is an index to the develop- 
ments which are taking place in the teaching and learning ac- 
tivities developed in the institution. The recognition of rising 
academic standards provides the other side of the picture which 
one sees on the physical side. The historical view of Savannah 
State College, which observes its 70th Anniversary this year, in- 
dicates that the College has continued to grow in strength and 
service to the youth of this State. It is desirable that at some time 
during the day of celebration, a moment of thought may be given 
to the things seen and felt. 

Along with greetings to the Savannah State College alumni, 
we extend greetings to our visitors from Morris College. The long 
record of fine relationship in college athletics with the faculty and 
student body of Morris College heightens our enjoyment of this 
occasion. The football teams representing the two colleges will 
furnish a contest which contributes toward the high aims and ideals 
of each institution. When the shot is fired for the end of the game. 
we wish to say that the contest was a display of the finest quality 
of sportsmanship.

My Kind of Democracy 

By William Hagins 
"These are times that try 
men's souls." wrote Thomas 
Paine in 1776, but the words are 
just as applicable today as they 
were in 1766. Today, the United 
States is one of the leaders in 
an ideological struggle. Soviet 
Russia and her satellites have 
challenged the basic freedom 
upon which America was found- 
ed and which most of the West- 
em nations have come to ac- 

The cold war is affecting in- 
ternational relations and is 
threatening world peace. In our 
country, there is also a war going 
on between the white man and 
the Negro. The United States 

could seize the propaganda 

initiative by insisting upon one 

thing, that the Negro is given 

his rights. 
This problem is two-fold. First 

of all. racial strife within the 

United States would be elimi- 
nated, thus making America 

truly democratic. And secondly, 

the uncommitted nations of the 

world would be drawn to the 

American camp in this ideologic 

struggle for the minds and souls 

of men. 
Both of these cold wars — 

Communism versus Democracy 

and the White man versus the 

Negro — have been waging for a 

long time. The little people of 

the 7/orld are sick and tired of 

this jungle-like struggle. 

From President of the Student Council 

Dear Fellow Students: 

Many significant changes that are of world-wide importance 
are evident even here on our campus. The trend towards the pursuit 
of education has favorably shown itself in our enrollment figures 
for the Fall Quarter 1960-61 school year. It is indeed a pleasure 
to welcome you and solicit your support throughout the school 
year to the program and activities of your student council. 

Several matters of importance awaited our return to school. 
Among them and of primary importance was homecoming. All 
groups and organizations are to be commended for the fine spirit 
of cooperation shown toward working to the Homecoming deadline. 
Along the same lines, the members of the Student Council are 
indeed worthy of praise for the splendid jobs that they have done 
and are still doing to further the progress of the task we are 

In a few weeks from now you will be hearing directly from your 
Council asking for your assistance in an activity sponsored by us. 
If you have ever had the desire to be of some help to this organ- 
ization this opportunity will surely present itself. We are sincerely 
hoping that you will heed this call individually and collectively. 

To the alumni and friends of the college who are here visiting 
with us for homecoming, on behalf of the student body it gives me 
great pleasure to welcome you "home" again. It is our sincere 
hope that your stay will be a pleasant one. and the memories will 
be lasting ones. 

Sincerely yours, 

EVA C, BOSEMAN. President

Politics and World News 



This issue of The Tiger's Roar 
presents to the Savannah State 
College campus a publication 
somewhat different from those 
produced on the campus last 

The Tiger's Roar aims are: to 
express student voice and 
opinion, print news of our 
campus life and world affairs. 
compete and excel among other 
college publications, announce 
important information to the 
Savannah State College family. 

Publishing a student news- 
paper is a job that requires the 
cooperation of all student organ- 
izations on the campus. News Is 
made every minute of the day. 
It is the job of the journalist 
or reporter of the organization 
to capture this news and recreate 
It on paper. Deadlines are very 
important and should be kept. 

The Tiger's Roar is scheduled 
to publish ten papers this year. 
Why not support your student 
newspaper 100 per cent. O.K.? 

Letter to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

What has happened to the 
SCHOOL SPIRIT at Savannah 
State? I feel this is important 
because without spirit there can 
be but very little motivation of 
any kind on campus. We need 
to give moral support and cheer 
our teams to victory. It is obvious 
to see that we. as college stu- 
dents, do not attend pep rallies, 
cheer our team or other things 
of that nature that give our 
players a feeling of well being. 
I love my college, maybe it's 
because I came here some years 
ago when the upperclassmen 
made the freshman walk around 
the campus with his pants on 
the wrong side for a week. After 
it was over I respected upper- 
classmen and participated in 
every activity the student body 

Why can't we, as students in 
the largest Negro state college 
in Georgia, get out and push 
our teams and act united like 
the other colleges? 

Mr. Editor, I not only want to 
cite the conditions that now 
exist, but to plead to those who 
may read this letter, to turn 
over a new leaf, and exhibit 
that vital element. "SCHOOL

What actually is behind the 
Castro regime? Is it on the verge 
of ultimate collapse, or is it 
destined for further recognition

tories and mills by the Cubans 
has proven to us that they want 
everything except the improve- 
ment of relationship. 

Where do we go from here? 
Are we going to let a brat of a 
nephew confiscate properties 
worth in the neighborhood of 
5800.000,000, while we sit back

we going to give him the spank-

Our Electoral System 

By Gladys Lambert 
As the time approaches for 
the presidential election in No- 
vember, we do well to take a 
critical look at the effectiveness 
of our present system for elect- 
ing the president, Our Constitu- 
tion provides that the president 
and vice president shall not be 
elected directly by the voters. 
but by electors who themselves 
are elected by the voters of the

There have been occasions 
when the Electoral College failed 
to elect a president. One such 
occasion was the election of 1800 
in which the Republican candi-

Aaron Burr respectively, each 
received the same number of

A World of Dreams 

By Phillip Hampton 
The dream, a product of 
dreamers, is a mysterious con- 
dition without substance, a 
nebulous fantasy of another 
world separated from reality by 
a sliver of shadow and, with 
apologies to Byron : (dreams i 
"make us what we were not," 

The profundity and the sundry 
of the world which we know 
could once have been but a 
dream. The fantasy that is 
dreamt today may indeed be- 
come the real and sincere of 
tomorrow , . . and tomorrow's 
caprice may yet be a prelude to 
entities that could never been 
yesterday's dream. 

The dream is a catalysis which 
provokes men to contrive for 
beauty through poetry and song. 
to change sorcery to science, to 
uncover the unexplored and to 
forge the destinies of other men. 

Observe a dreamer and dis- 
cover if you will, a Columbus, a 
Newton, a da Vinci, a Moses, or 
a you. Observe a dream and the 
future will be in it, a canvas 
smeared with paint, a messon or 
a propellant to a moon, a plan 
for peace, or a new deodorant

candidate compared with the

There have been occasions, 
though not many, when electors 
have violated their pledge to vote 
for their party's candidate. In 
the election of 1820 William 
Plumer, a New Hampshire 
elector, voted for John Quincy 
Adams, in spite of the fact that 
James Monroe was his party's 
presidential candidate. Plumer 
explained his action by saying 
that he wanted to bring Adams 
to the attention of political 
leaders. Nothing can be legally 
done to an elector who violates 
his pledge because the authors 
of the Constitution gave electors 
the right of independent choice.

Fashions For Women 

By Geraldine Lindsey 

"A Fur Collar Adds Elegance 
To Winter Fashion Ensemble,". 

I do not have to stress the im- 
portance of fur trim — just look 
through any fashion magazine 
or newspaper, and you will see 
suits and coats galore with 
fabulous fur collars and prices 
to match. 

If you have an old fur piece, 
too worn in spots to make re- 
pairing worthwhile and too good 
in large patches to discard, why 
not use it to advantage? 

Working with fur can be 
tricky, but it can be done if you 
are only making a trim of some 
sort. Here are some hints if you 
want to make a collar— a job 
almost anyone can do. 

Make a pattern of the whole 
collar out of heavy wrapping 
paper, leaving out the seam 
allowance. A half collar pattern 
to be cut on the fold cannot be 
used, because fur cannot be cut 
when folded. 

Lay the fur out flat, hair side 
down, on a board and tack to 
board at each corner with a 
push pin. Place pattern on fur 
and pin through fur and board 
with push pin. Trace outline of 
pattern on skin. Cut through 
skin only, with a sharp razor 
blade, being careful not to cut 
the hair. 

After the collar is cut and 
pieced together to fit the 
pattern, you must strengthen it 
with padding. Sew cotton 
wadding or lambs wool lightly 
to the skin with tailors' lasting. 
Now, holding the skin side to- 
ward you, sew twill tape to outer 
elges of collar with overhand 
stitch; then turn tape over to 
skin and sew to padding with 

If the collar is fur on both 
sides, make each side in the 
same way, and then slip stitch 
together. If the collar is to be 
attached to a coat or jacket, 
slip stitch fur collar on to the 
collar of the finished garment. 
Then, with small stitches, sew 
along center of collar, catching 
the padding in the fur collar. 

So remember, it you have an 
old fur, or one small spotted 
leopard skin, there is no better 
way to use it than to make a 
luxurious collar.

Men's Fiishions 

By Eddie Bryant, Jr. 
Why Wear Pants? 

Slacks, as we know tliem to- 
day, are the result of man's 
desire to hide certain unpleasant 
features about his legs. Lion 
cloths might never have left 
fashion if it weren't for bumpy 
knees. Silk tights could still be 
with us except for their tendency 
to accentuate the rear. The early 
Romans, for instance, regarded 
any trousers as barbarous; then 
along came the Roman Emperor 
Justinian who was the first man 
to wear trousers. They were 
silken affairs called "hosa," and 
resembled "tights." They clicked, 
and man hasn't looked the same 

Today's fashions open our eyes 
to the new Grape tones. Hues 
from dark red to purple Concord 
are high fashion colors, that 
lend richness to the neutral 
colors, particularly gray. Grape,

sport shirt or sweater, adds 
freshness and e'clat to your 

In suits. Grape provides a 
subtle flavoring, adds a royal 
richness to fine worsteds. 

For shoes, Vintage Brown is 
the new color — a deep rich brown 
with a slight undertone of dark

Personality of the 
Month — Faeuhy 

By Mary C, Rosebud 
The faculty personality may 
be considered one of the most 
significant columns in The 
Tiger's Roar because it gives the 
students an opportunity to know 
a little of the personal back- 
ground of the faculty. This 
month the writer takes great 
pleasure in presenting to you 
another interesting personality, 
that of Miss Marcelle E. Rhod-

Campus Spotlisht 

By Yvonne McGlockton 

Toledo Riley 

Campus Spotlight, a regular 
feature of the Tiger's Roar, pays 
tribute to distinguished students 
who througli their scholarship, 
service, loyality, and attitudes 
have merited this tribute. 

This being the homecoming 
edition, the writer of this column 
presents as one of the two per- 
sonalities spotlighted, one who 
plays an important role in our 
homecoming celebration. The 
person is Toledo A. Riley, head 
majorette in the band. 

Toledo hails from Atlanta. 
Georgia and is a graduate of 
Price High of that city. 

In the fall of 1958, she enrolled 
at Savannah State and immedi- 
ately became head majorette in 
the band la distinction seldom 
given to a freshman), Her high 
stepping and superb twirling 
probably merited her this dis- 

Toledo's extra-curricular ac- 
tivities in addition to the band 
include the Creative Dance 
Group. Camilla Hubert Hall 
Dormitory Council (treasurer). 
Physical Education Club and 
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. 

Poised and debonair, she is 
the nonchalant type. She never 
seems to let the rush and excite- 
ment of the day affect Iier in 
any manner. 

When it comes to favorite 
foods she enjoys all fruits. Proof 
of this was seen during the 
interview at which time she ate 
an apple and a banana. Hobby- 

Nathan Mario Kight 

wise she enjoys sewing, 
swimming, and dancing. 

Presently she is a junior 
majoring In physical education 
with the ambition of becoming a 
physical therapist. 

Another Interesting person- 
ality is that of Nathan Mario 
Kight. "Courteous, comical, and 
cooperative." are three "C's" 
personified in Kight. His pleas- 
ing personality and warm 
friendly smile are among the 
many qualities which cause him 
to rate high in popularity on the 

Hailing from Folkston, Geor- 
gia, Kight is presently a senior, 
majoring in biology and minor- 
ing in chemistry, 

During his college career he 
has been affiliated with several 
organizations. Among them are 
the Pan-Hellenic Council (treas- 
urer). Student Council (business 
manager). Omega Psi Phi Fra- 
ternity (vice basUeus), Alpha 
Kappa Mu Tutorial System, and

Miss SSC 

By Charles H. Lee. Jr. 
The budding rose kisses her 
Each morning she rises from a 
peaceful sleep. 
Beauty reigns in stately might. 
And Miss S.S.C. is always a 
lovely sight. 
To be in her presence is such 
a rare pleasure; 
That friendship with her is a 
golden treasure. 
To the one that holds this 
lovely heart; 
Be thankful for the flight of 
Cupid's dart. 
Her heart is full of warmth 
and charm; 
The guardian angel protects her 
from harm. 
Yvonne, surely, you grow fairer 
by the hour; 
Because God created a very rare 
Dedicated to our Queen. Miss 
S.S.C, Yvonne McGlockton, 

So please stop pretending ; 
Respond to Cupid's shove. 

My eyes sparkle when You are 

I thrill whenever you pass, 
Let's declare we're lovers now. 

Lovers that will last. 

I guess I've been too forward. 
Oh, many a thousand times; 

But in the end, I hope to hear. 
Those wedding bells chime. 


By "Gem" 
You know I'm yours to have 
and hold. 
To adore, caress and love 


By Charles Lee 
Shuffling along he treads there. 
Lost in despair and mortal fear. 
A wanderlust of frightful horror. 
Dreading each new tomorrow. 

Church bells may peal loud and 

His soul remains damp and cold. 
He has resigned himself to the 

living dead. 
And nature his epitaph has read. 

Where he is going he doesn't 

Life is truly his dreadfvil foe. 
And beneath a tree he would 

slowly pass. 
While nature chants a requiem

How to Understand Women 

It can't be done. Thafs the 
considered opinion of countless 
theorizers. from traffic cops to 
tragic poets, who've tried to 
fathom feminine motives. 

Said one 19th century versifier, 
an Englishman with the unlikely 
name of Coventry Patmore: 
A Woman is a foreign land 
Of which, though there he 

settle young 
A man will ne'er quite under- 
The customs, politics and 

Other thinkers, more success- 
ful with the pretty and puzzling 
sex. have milady all — well, 
almost all— figured out. Gib 
Supple Ad Director of Shulton. 
has compiled some of these valu- 
able clues to making a hit with 
Her . . . and Her . . . and Her. 
1. Act devoted. Brush imagi- 
nary dust from her shoulder, 
hold hands under the dinner 
table, touch your lips to the glass 
her lips have touched — and don't 
worry if the gesture seems old 
hat or corny. These suggestions, 
for instance, come from a 2.000 
year old treatise on "The Art of 
Love." Did they work? So well 
that Ovid, the author, was 
obliged to write a sequel telling 
men how to avoid entangling 

Other tips from Ovid's first 
work: lose to her at gambling, 
yield to her smallest whim, be 
sure those sitting behind her at 
the circus don't thrust their 
knees into her back. 

2. Act jealous. A man who's 
unreasonable— within reasonable 
limits, of course— is one of the 
most effective ego-builders a 
7/oman can have. Therefore, 
grumble a bit when she smiles 
(etchingly at another man. If 
you're still single and not yet 
at the going-steady stage, ask if 
she's free for a date in a tone 
that implies you think you're 
competing with at least two 
other guys. Never let her suspect 
that you know you're her only 
beau — even if you know it for a

shorter test. 

The California Test of Person-

Basketball Drills to Begin 

((Continued Irani I'age 3) 

Last year the Tigers had a 
squad dominated by sophomore 
players. The 1960-61 Tigers will 
add a few new faces One of 
them is Henry Jackson, a gradu- 
ate of Crane Technical High 
Scliool of Chicago. Illinois. Jack- 
son is the brother of Ira Jack- 
son. While at Crane. Jackson 
averaged 20 points per game and 
was the top rebounder on the 
team. Henry definitely will be 
a great help to the team this 
year. The other is Johnny 
Mathis, Jr. Mathis prepped at 
Peabody High in Eastman, Geor- 
gia, where he averaged 25 points 
per game in his last year. He 
will be the tallest man on the 
squad, standing 6 feet, 5 inches. 
The squad lost only one mem- 
ber of the 1959-60 team and will 
have only one senior on the 
1960-61 team. Returning from 
last year are the entire first 
team and four members of the 
second team . Returning letter- 
men are: Redell Walton, high 
scorer for the past two years, 
6' l", 195 lbs.; Ira Jackson, the 
second leading scorer and num- 
ber one rebounder on the team 
for the past two years; Stephen 
Kelly, the best dribbler on the 
squad and the leading ball 
handler; Willie Tate, the best- 
all-around player on the squad. 
He dribbles, passes, and rebounds 
well; James Dixon, captain of 
the team and number two man 
in assists. 

Other lettermen are Raymond 
Harper, Junior; Alphonso Mc- 
Lean, senior; Leon Wright, 
sophomore; Elijah McGraw, 
junior; Willie Epps. sophomore; 
and William Day, sophomore. 

The Tigers basketball team is 
looking forward to another suc- 
cessful season on the hardwood 
floor. Last year's team compiled 
the best record ever by a Savan- 
nah State College basketball 
team by winning 29 games and 
losing only three. 

So join your favorite colleague 
and yell THE TIGERS to another 
big year.

Student Opinions 

By Annette Kennedy 

With the beginning of the '60- 
■61 school year, the students at 
Savannah State College are pri- 
marily concerned with progress. 
Progress of course, being the 
most important aspect of any 
good institution. This article 
shall deal with a cross section 
of opinions on what can be done 
to make Savannah State College 
a more progressive and suitable 
place to lead a well-rounded col- 
lege life, 

William Hagins. junior, Sa- 
vannah. Georgia, "I think the 
intramural program should be 
suited to meet the needs of all 
students so that more students 
will be able to take an active 
part in these affairs." 

Jewel Williams, freshman, Sa- 
vannah, Georgia. "I feel that 
there should be more faculty 
assistance in lielping students 
arrange their schedules so that 
some students will not have such 
long breaks between classes such 
as from 9:'20 until 2:30." 

Ophelia Wilson, freshman. Sa- 
vannah. Georgia. "I think more 
sports should be provided for 
young ladies, as tennis and 

Donnie Cooper, senior, Metter. 
Georgia, "I feel that the condi- 
tion of the football field should 
be improved so that during 
rainy weather it won't be so 
difficult getting to and from the 


Ann Moffitt, junior, Metter, 
Georgia. 'I think that the school 
spirit at Savannah State is lack- 
mg in many ways and I feel it 
needs tremendous improvement." 

Emily Snype, unclassified. Sa- 
vannah. Georgia. "I feel that 
there should be more social ac- 
tivities so that the dormitory 
and city students will have a 
closer relationship." 

Luvenia Harris, senior, Savan- 
nah, Georgia, "I think that 
something should be done about 
the way the courses are offered 
so that once a year courses won't 
come in conflict with each 

Marguerite Tiggs, senior, Sa- 
vannah. Georgia. "Activities 
sliould be planned so that the 
beginning of the year won't be 
overcrowded, leaving the spring 
quarter without anything to do." 

Kharn Collier, senior. Savan- 
nah, Georgia, "School spirit 
should begin at the gate," 

Bernice Cofer, sophomore. At- 
lanta, Georgia, "The privileges 
of the dormitory students should 
be extended." 

Warnell Robinson, senior. Sa- 
vannah, Georgia. "I stress a 
more dense Instructor-Student 

Mildred Gissentanner. senior. 
Savannah. Georgia. "I think that 
if outside personalities such as, 
Thurgood Marshall and Lois 
Towles was brought to the 
campus, it would create school 
spirit and a lot of other things 
that we need around here. It 
would definitely help in the area 
of stimulating an interest in 
cultural activities."

Foreign Impressions

Business Administration vaca- 
tioned eight weeks in Newberry, 
Bershire, England, with her 
sister, Mrs, Dorothy Wilson, New- 
berry is located approximately 
60 miles to the south of London. 

Among the historic places Miss 
Boston visited were Buckingham 
Palace; the new and old U, S. 
Embassies; the Statue of Roose- 
velt; Piccadilly Circus, which is 
the Times Square of London ; 
Fleet Street, which is the Lon- 
don newspaper center; and Saint 
Paul's Cathedral. 

One day while on a shopping 
spree in London, Miss Boston 
witnessed the breath - taking 
changing of the guards cere- 
mony in front of Buckingham 
Palace. She also had the pleasure 

of sitting in beautiful West- 
minster Abbey. 

While sightseeing in Edin- 
burgh. Scotland, Miss Boston 
visited liistoric Edinburgh Castle, 
the birthplace of James I of Eng- 
land and the seat of his mother, 
Mary Queen of Scots, She also 
visited Margaret's Chapel which 
is also located in Edinburgh 

Miss Boston reports that she 
thoroughly enjoyed her trip to 
historic England. She found the 
Britons to be very cordial. She 
further stated that it was an 
enjoyable sight to see elderly 
people cycling to and from their 
places of employment. Miss 
Boston was particularly im- 
pressed with the British people's 
love for flowers and cattle. She 
stated that the quaint little 
houses and scenic countryside of 
dear old England will always 
bring back many entertaining

Author Calls Castro 
Coniniiinisni'^s Sole Cheer 

Despite pessimists' cries that 
America's world position is 
degenerating, in actuality the 
free world has far more to cheer 
about than the Communists, 
asserts an article in the October 
Reader's Digest. 

Says author Edwin L. Dale. 
Jr. : "If I were sitting in the 
Kremlin and plotting domina- 
tion of the world. I should be 
more tempted to write an 
alarmist article than I am where 
I am now sitting, Fidel Castro 
would be nearly the only balm to 
my troubled soul," 

In contrast to this single 
triumph of communism, Dale 
marshals an impressive list of 
free-world victories to back up 
his contention that "the state of 
the world is not really so bad." 
Among them: 

The government of India has 
cooled noticeably toward its 
neighbor. Red China. This per- 
ceptible shift away from China 
took its most tangible form last 
month when for the first time 
in several years, India declined 
to sponsor a bill to admit Red 
China into the United Nations. 

Burma and Malaya, once hot- 
beds of Communist activity, have 
wiped out nearly all Communist 

The emerging nations of 
Africa have shown overwhelm- 
ingly that given the choice, they

With the possible exception of

Presideufs Message 

During the past decade, colleges in this section of the country 
have become increasingly aware of the effectiveness of their edu- 
cational program. This tendency has emphasized the need of in- 
struments to determine the preparedness of individuals to partici- 
pate in programs leading to increased opportunities and privileges. 
The large increase in scholarship programs and financial aid 
to students attending college has made it necessary to develop 
objective methods for selecting applicants. The tendency to use 
objective methods for selection has been employed in industry and 
government for many years. The extension of the selective process 
may be expected to spread to the majority of programs requiring 
a college education as a basis for consideration. In our own state, 
all high school graduates expecting to enter any of the under- 
graduate units of the University System of Georgia are required 
to submit, prior to admission— as a part of their requirements the 
scores on the College Entrance Examination Board's Scholastic 
Aptitude Test. This program which has been followed for the past 
three years will become a standard procedure. 

jthe temporary measures provided during the first years of the 
program will be discontinued. In the past, some of the colleges 
have been permitted to administer the examinations after fresh- 
men had arrived on the college campus. Beginning in the Fall of 
1961. freshmen students will be admitted only if they have already 
taken the College Board examinations. It is to be expected that 
the purpose and objective for such examinations will be utilized 
to provide better educational opportunities for students who enter 

\3^he fear which many students have for examination is prob- 
ably due to a lack of familiarity with the tests and the function 
which they serve. Increased opportunity to take tests and to 
understand how they are used will remove much of the fear and 
dread. When students realize that examinations are used almost 
as much outside of college as they are during the college career, 
they will understand that these instruments are becoming increas- 
ingly useful in all aspects of our economy. Students who are un- 
able to work to their best advantage on examinations and tests 
will discover that the opportunity for employment in industry, the 
professions— including teaching, and government services will be 

,5/ery test should be considered an opportunity for the student 
to learn something about his thoroughness in the field, and his 
ability to take the test in a manner that is most advantageous to 
him. Many of the tests taken by students in college are returned 
to them after they have been scored or corrected. The serious 
student studies these tests when they are returned in order that 
he may discover why he was successful or unsuccessful on various 
items. This type of reaction to test materials can be expected to 
enhance one's ability to perform well on the examination. While 
the techniques for taking examinations are necessary for effective 
performances, it must be emphasized that they are not a substitute 
for thoroughness in study and learning. 

In the decade of the '60s. examinations may be expected to 
become standard procedure for scholarships, loans, admission to 
professions, local, state, and federal govermnent positions, and a 
great group of semi-professional occupations. Every college stu- 
dent is acquainted with the fact that for a number of years such 
examinations have been required for applicants to schools of 
medicine, dentistry, law, pharmacy, nursing, engineering, for teach- 
ing certificates, graduate school work, and many government 
positions. Examinations are a part of the age in which we live, 
and those reluctant to prepare in terms of them will be limited 
in their choices. 

Tigei'^s Roar Exchange 
Near the 100 Mark 

By Eiuma Sue McCrory 
The Tiger's Roar is nearing 
the hundred mark for the ex- 
changing of newspapers with 
other colleges and xmiversities. 
Of course, this is by no means 
the "finishing mark" for the 
staff. Looking forward to 1961, 
we are hoping to communicate 
even more with fellow schools. 
Truly, this is another fact which 
contributes to the statement, 
"The world is getting smaller 
and smaller." Despite the mile- 
age, we find no obstacle in 

knowing about activities at 
Tuskegee, Xavier, Indiana U. 
Prairie View, and other schools. 

Could we possibly afford not 
to correspond with the world 
congested with news ! news ! 
news! It is somewhat interest- 
ing to note that the editor 
stresses variety in the Tiger's 
Roar which seems to be moti- 
vated by the exchange program. 

Would it not be "something 
else" if each college and univer- 
sity had a copy of your ideas and 
articles? By all means, and we 
have been thinking about it. 
Meanwhile, our "hats off" to all 
corresponding editors.

Importance of the 
College Newspaper 

By James C, Matthews 

The college newspaper plays 
an important role in college life. 
You may not know it, but col- 
leges are represented to the out- 
side world by student publica- 
tions. The college newspaper 
does not only represent the col- 
lege in the outside world, but it 
alsoserves as an outlet for in- 
forming students of the activities 
that have taken place on and off 
campus which concern them. 

The college newspaper is an 
instrument of mass communica- 
tion on campus. It is a publica- 
tion by which the students may 
speak or voice their conceptions 
through editorials, feature 
stories, poems, etc. This also 
raises the question of freedom 
of the student pubhcation versus 
control. The college newspaper 
represents the students and 
gives them a chance to debate 
and test experimental thoughts, 
emotions, and beliefs. A free 
college newspaper gives self- 
expression of the outstanding 
moments on campus. It has 
many motives of expression and 
is as multiform as human 

The college newspaper does not 
only have a local campus value, 
but a professional value also. 
For many colleges are judged by 
their student publications. So 
from these conceptions, it can be 
concluded that a college news- 
paper holds the major spotlight 
of student expression in college

Election Over — What Now? 

By James DeVoe 

There are many dissatisfied individuals following a presidential 
election. Many of the dissatisfied individuals have such reactions 
and are shocked when they find out after the election that the 
expected support for their candidate really did not exist. 

The defeated candidates along with their aides and many sup- 
porters are hurt and feel positive that they have been rendered a 
grave injustice. It is truly amazing to see. after presidential elec- 
tions, the host of people who are virtually ignorant of the fact 
that justice is the only thing that can come to hght after an 
election. When most candidates lose an election many of them 
pacify themselves by blaming their inability to win on the under- 
hand procedures of those who conducted the elections. Excuses 
are petty; it takes a good man to accept defeat and look forward 
to victory in future elections. 

One must admit that it is not easy to accept defeat and that 
the individuals who can master defeat and take it in their stride 
are very few. Because of the usual after-election hostilities, elec- 
tion officials are amazed when an election is held and there are 
no accusations made. 

One would imagine that it is an individual's perogative to 
suspect everyone when the most revered and sought after position 
is at stake. When one can never find it in himself to trust another 
person or group of persons, he is not to be trusted. When one 
wishes to have faith in himself, he must first of all have faith 
in others. 

The vast majority of us fail to recognize the fact that the 
masses do not select leaders. Leaders, such as the President of 
the U. S.. for the most part, emerge into eminence and the populaces 
merely put them in office by nomiating them and casting their 

The election is over, and Victory has once more been declared 
by tiie winning party in conjunction with the members of the 
party which he represents. The winners are jubilant, and the 
losers are sad. If there were mistakes made they cannot be erased 
until the next election year rolls around or if the electee cannot 
live up to the high standards of his office he may be impeached. 
The only sane solution for the unhappy minority is to accept the 
obvious fact that the election is over and admit that ballots, not 
complaints, win elections.

Technical Science Building Aids in Building Floats 

Many favorable comments were made concerning Homecoming. 
One was, this year's Homecoming parade showed tremendous im- 
provement over previous years. Much of this improvement was due 
to the fact that the new technical science building housed the 
building of the floats. Last year, the majority of the decorating 
was done outdoors. Damp weather and dim lighting slowed down 
the production of the builders and decorators. This year, approxi- 
mately 15 cars and floats were being constructed at the same time 
with the aid of modern machinery in the new tech building. 
Students also had ample time to begin preparing materials, thus 
better floats and cars were produced. 

The Tiger's Roar Staff congratulates all the student organiza- 
tions who helped make the Annual Homecoming celebration one that 
will be long remembered here at SSC, 

Pan-Hellenic Coffee Lift — Good Gesture 

The coffee and doughnut lift sponsored by the Greek-letter 
fraternities and sororities October 14, was indeed a good gesture. 

This affair was spearheaded by the president of the Pan 
Hellentic Council, Eddie Bryant, Each person working on a car or 
float was given a doughnut and a cup of coffee. The coffee not 
only served as a lift but a bridge builder to unity among the Greek- 
letter organizations. 

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

Much is being said around the 
campus about the development 
of the individual as a whole: 
physically, mentally, emotion- 
ally, and socially. I must admit 
that much is being done to pro- 
mote the first three of these 
aspects of the individual but 
little is being done to promote 
the fourth aspect (the social 

I wonder if this thought has 
occurred to those in authority 
who are able to establish a better 
social program for the students 
who live on campus. 

Our recreational center is open 
six nights a week for only a 
few hours (it closes at 8 p,m.). 
In addition to being open a small 
length of time, it does not pro- 
vide adequate entertainment. 
No planned activities are set up 
and the recreation consists of 
the regular routine throughout 
the year. At the center, week 
after week we play cards, dance 
and watch television daily except 
on Sundays when the center is 
closed and the students are left 
entirely out-of-doors socially, 

I feel that we need more 
wholesome recreational and 
social activities to correct the 
present lag in the social aspect 
of our campus life, and it is my 

sincere hope that soon we will 
have these activities. 

Julia E. Cheely 


Echoes of praise have been 
coming our way through the 
President's Office, various com- 
mittees, and other agencies ex- 
pressing pleasure at the very fine 
spirit exhibited by the staff, 
students, alumni, and adminis- 
tration toward those who visited 
us for the 1960 Homecoming 

Since the activities brought so 
much praise and enjoyment, the 
committee does not want to take 
all the credit, but would like to 
share it with you and others who 
made it possible for us to do the 
job well. 

The parade, football game, 
half-time activities, dance, and 
the services rendered, all added 
to the enjoyment of the public 
and indicated a fine spirit of co- 
operation, teamwork, and high 
degree of quality and taste. 

We express our appreciation 
and request your cooperation in 
the future. 

Sincerely yours, 
The Homecoming Committee

three games.

lege 67 to 6, the second to Albany 
State College 19 to and the 
third to Alabama State College 
30 to 0. 

Benedict 67 to 6 
In the game between the 
Tigers and Benedict College, the 
Tigers drew first blood with a 
88 yard drive that placed them 
out front with a six-point lead 
in just three minutes of the first

powerful Benedict squad come

Benedict squad was in complete 
command, scoring some 32 more 
points making the final score 
67 to 6. 

Albany 19-0 
Albany's Melt Bostic and Ed 
Nelson provided a two-man of- 
fensive show for the unbeaten 
and unscored upon Albany State 
College as the ASC Rams un- 
ended SSC's Tigers 19-0. 

Albany co-Captain Bostic re- 
turned Ben Edwards game open-

fourth period after Tiger John 
Strong made an attempt for 
Nelson's klckolf. Nelson also 
kicked the extra point for the 
final score. 

End Fred Carter and Line- 
backer Robert Leonard were 
outstanding defensively for the 
Alabama State College 32, SSC 

Alabama's halfback Washing- 
ton Craig scored tour touch- 
downs and a two-point conver- 
sion to lead Alabama State to a 
32-0 victory over the Tigers.

ten minutes of the game, with a 
55-yard punt return in the re- 
maining two minutes capping 
the scoring. The other runs were 
for 10 and 12 yards. 

The Savannah State College basketball team will journey to 
Atlanta to compete in the Georgia Invitational basketball tourna- 
ment December 1, 2, 3. The Tigers played in the G.I.T. in 1955 
and won it by defeating Morris Brown College in the final game- 
Incidentally, this was the first G.I.T. held. 

Matching shots with the Tigers 
in the big three-day hardwood 

classic will be teams from Dillard

Jackson, president, and the 
competing quints were selected 
on the basis of the outstanding 
records compiled in their respec- 
tive conferences last season. 

The final seelctions, recom- 
mended by the Tournament 
Committee and approved by the 
Club, were based on the follow- 
ing won-lost records:

A & I State 


The Tigers are rated'very high 
and are given a good chance to 
win the tournament. Experience 
will not be lacking on the team. 

The entire first team will be 
probable starters again this year. 
All of the players on the team 
have improved and will see ac- 
tion this season. The team began 
training November 1, and will 
be in top condition for the GIT. 

Redell Walton. Ira Jackson, 
Willie Tate. Stephen Kelly, and 
Captain James Dixon, are the 
starting five from last season 
who SSC's chances will be riding 
on in the GIT. 

This is the third year the SSC 
five have played together. Their 
only problem seems to be in 
fmding a top reserve to fill the 
shoes of Robert Robbins who 
graduated last season. They may 
have their problem solved if 
Paul Thompson or Johnny 
Mathis can find themselves on 
the court. A lot will be expected 
from Alphonso McLean, the only 
senior on the team. 

Since becoming a Tiger in 1057 
John has been a standout in the 
halfback slot. He's a full-fledged 
threat to go the distance on any 
offensive play, whether he is 
flanked out for a pass or in tight 
for a trip into or around the line. 


Elijah has been Captain of the 
Tigers for the past three years 
and is known throughout the 
SEAC as one of its finest win^?- 
men. He's expected to continue 
to chop down rivals with devas- 
tating blocks and snare vital 
passes. McGraw, a former Serv- 
iceman, was a member of the 
1959 Tiger basketball squad. 

Benjamin Spann. fre>hman, 
center and iine-bacUer deluxe. 

n^ t ^ 

Quick and powerful, Bell has 
been a three-year standout in a 
powerful Tiger line. One of the 
SEAC's outstandintj blockers. Ed- 
die is equally at home providing 
pass protection or charging down 
field to knock out secondary de- 
fenders; he is also equally good 
on defense. 


Quarterbacks Dennis Nelson and Bobby Dunbar shake hands as 
they agree on the game tactics of the season.

The Tiger's Roar Forum: A Column of Opinion 

By Annette Kennedy 

As a result of this article of student opinions and other articles 
whicli appeared in the last issue of the Tiger's Roar, some pertinent 
questions have been raised concerning the present status of the 
'school spirit." 

This issue's article shall be devoted to student opinions con- 
cerning the school spirit at Savannah State College. 

To the question, "Do you feel that the school spirit at SSC is 
deficient in any respect so as to become an area of basic concern?" 
the following replies were given. 

Virginia Mercer— senior, Metter— "Yes. it is my opinion that 
there is something wrong with our school spirit. Take for example 
the present year book situation. Juniors were requested to take pic- 
tures at a designated date and only a minority have done so. To me 
this indicated a lack of school spirit and I feel we all need to 
closely analyze ourselves for this deficiency." 

Delores Clarke— sophomore. Savannah— "Yes. I do think tVtat 
it should become an area of basic concern. The students do not 
take a sincere interest and pride in the activities on campus or 
their studies." 

Willie Williams— senior. Savannah— "Yes, there is definitely a 
deficiency. What little display of school spirit that is shown 
IS immediately forgotten, such as the pep rallies in the gym which 
are attended by a few." 

Bernice Pinkney — Junior. Savannah — "Yes, it has reached a 
low enough ebb to become of basic concern. It is especially evident 
in the lack of pride of the campus and activities, especially sports- 

Euby Mitchell— advanced .junior, Beaufort. S. C— "Yes, it Vs 
very deficient. The students do not have enough interest in the 
mtellectual phase of college life." 

Carolyn Vinson— junior. Savannah — "I feel that if the students 
would only support the functions of the school wholeheartedly, the 
deficiency which is so very evident would soon be eliminated. 

Nathan Mario Kight — senior — "This is not something that has 
just developed. This deficiency has been in existence for a period 
of time. Frankly, I think more to remedy this condition should 
be initiated immediately." 

Phylis Singfield — senior, Augusta— "Of course it should beixii 
basic concern. What the students lack is a get up and go attitude." 

Juanita Quinn — junior. Savannah — "It should have been an 
area of basic concern long ago. I for one. shall certainly check 
myself for any negligence on my part, and I hope other students 
will do likewise." 


A Lesson W ell-Learned 

By "Gem" 
Of all the times to unloved, 
I had to pick this year, 
I know if my heart had but one 

To me it wouldn't be near- 
Some folks think they're very 

They haven't a worldly care, 
But little do they realize 
That they, too, must pay a fare. 

My fare, I hope, is now paid. 
My share of woe. I'v had. 
I've now realized that breaking 

Is a dangerous fad. 


By Charles H, Lee 

Tonight as the wind beats 
against my window pane, 

And nature plays havoc with her 
storage of rain. 

I wonder why I am such a 
pompious fool. 

To be used as some casual im- 
plement or tool. 

Yet I am happy in such a 
primeval state, 

I am resigned to my mortal fate. 

Caught in the midst of chance 
I am. 

Willing to let love die like a 
sacrified lamb. 

By Eddie W, Bryant, Jr. 
Did you ever stop to wonder 
About the things you see. 
Tlie things that God made for 
And the things he made them 
to be. 

He made a man from dirt and 
Gave him a soul so he could 
Made him legs to guide his way 
And gave him vision from day 
to day 

The wonders of this world, and 
all you see, 
God made them for you, and 
made them for me. 

The Heart 

By ''Gem" 
The heart Is but a tiny organ. 
Too much it cannot bear; 
It, too, must be fondled: 
It mustn't ever know fear. 

If fear should but ever appear, 
The heart will never be the same, 
For a heart once made wild. 
Can never again be tame. 

What Is Probation? 

By Verdelle Lambert 

During the last fourteen days 
in November, the pledgees of the 
various Greek letter organiza- 
tions at Savannah State College 
will go through the final phase 
of their pledging — probation. The 
initiation probation of each 
sorority and fraternity, however, 
does not exceed seven days. 

All of the Greek letter organ- 
izations on our campus have 
open as well as closed probation. 
When the members of a sorority 
or fraternity meet privately 
with their probates (during the 
seven days period) this is known 
as "closed probation." When the 
probates demonstrate before the 
public, this is known as "open 

Interestingly enough, this 
period, on some campuses, is 
referred to as "hell week." No 
such term has been designated 
to this week at Savannah State 
College; essentially though, it is 
a "fun week." for the spectators 
as well as the probates. 

The following information has 
been compiled in order to 
familiarize the student body to 
the general probation customs 
and procedures of the various 
Greek letter organizations. 
jProbates of Delta Sigma Theta 
Sorority are called barbarians. 
Their colors are red and white. 
They perform the "duck walk." 
The sorority has five pledges, 
^^robates of Omega Psi Phi 
Fraternity are called dogs. They 
wear a dog collar and carry a 
shield and a sword. They are 
known as the "marching dogs." 
The fraternity has twelve 

[probates of Zeta Phi Beta 
Sorority are called barbarians. 
Their colors are blue and white. 
They perform the "Z step." The 
sorority has nine pledgees. 

tPf-obates of Kappa Alpha Psi 
Fraternity are called dogs. They 
perform the "Kappa March." 
The fraternity has four pledgees. 

Probates of Alpha Kappa 
Sorority are called worms. Their 
colors are pink and green and 
their walk is called "Worming." 
The sorority has seven pledgees. 
iJ*fobates of Alpha Phi Alpha 
Fraternity are called dogs. They 
carry black and gold bricks and 
seven books to represent the 
seven founders of tlie fraternity. 
They march to the "Alpha 
Cadence." The fraternity has 
thirteen pledgees. 
^Probates of Sigma Gamma 
Rho Sorority are called bar- 
barians. Their colors are royal 
blue and gold and they carry 
umbrellas. The sorority has three 
;^r-obates of Phi Beta Sigma 
Fraternity are called dogs. The 
fraternity has no pledgees. 

Men'^s Fashions 

By Eddie W. Bryant, Jr. 
Winter Is Here 

Winter time is here, so let's 
bring out the heavy ones. With 
our new strong colors this sea- 
son, a purple tweed carcoat with 
leather pocket flaps would be 
ideal to wear. Or if you prefer 
the tall slim look, try the new 
topcoat with the continental 
silhouette ... a lower collar, 
tapered sleeves, and a short 

For those who prefer knitwear, 
knitting machines have learned 
many tricks. Now with your 
knitted Mort Sahl sweater, 
striped in Chianti and Concord, 
you can carry along a knitted 
jacket for a quick change or 
even the knitted topcoat with 
that slim look. An inner linning 
of man-made pile adds much to 
the comfort, little to the pound- 

For those who prefer a wool 
topper, the softness of a woolen 
pullover sweater, gold, olive or 
gray, would swing together with 
your gray sUm tight slacks. 

A knitted sports coat, or 
knitted red blazer, would be 
swinging for dates or for any 
dressier sports occasion.

Campus Spotlight 

By Yvonne McGlockton 

Juanita Quinn, Junior, 
social science major 

David Bodlson, Senior, 
business administration major 

Campus Spolli(:lu, a regular Irulurc oj The Ticeh's Roar, pays 
tribute to dtstirif^aished students who through their scholarship, 
service, loyally and altitudes have merited this tribute. 

In this edition, the Spotlight salutes one junior and one senior, 
Juanita Quinn and David Bodison, for their noteworthy contri- 
butions to campus life here at Savannah State College. 

Juanita, a native of Savannah is a junior majoring in social 
science and maintains above a "B" average cumulatively. 

"Juanie" as she is called by many of her associates, is affiliated 
with several campus organizations. Among these are: Alpha Kappa 
Alpha Sorority i assistant dean of pledges i; the Tiger Yearbook 
staff, the college playhouse and the Social Science Club. Recently, 
she was one of the 16 students on this campus elected to "Who's 
Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities for 
1960-61." Her ambition is to become a juvenile delinquent case 
worker after she does graduate work in the field of Sociology. 

Hobby-wise, she enjoys sewing, cooking, reading and listening 
to music. Juanita states her philosophy in life thus: "confidence 
in myself, faith in mankind and God, for the perpetuation of a 
better society." 

Bodison, also a native of Savannah, is a senior majoring in 
business administraton. He states that receiving a scholarship 
from Omega Psi Phi Fraternity greatly influenced him to come 
to college. 

Presently, his campus affiliations includes the Enterpriser 
(editor-in-chief). Business Club, Tiger's Roar staff (typist) and 
Business Manager of the senior class. 

David is the type of individual who does not stand out because 
of honors, achievements, etc., instead, he stands out because of 
his willingness to work, cooperative attitude, and ability to get 
along with his fellowman. 

His leisure time is spent fishing, hunting, and reading. Chinese 
chop suey, and Mexican hot tamali are his favorite foods. His 
ambition is to become a general accountant. Bodison's philosophy 
is a simple one— "anything worth having is worth working for." 

The writer of this column is proud to add these two personalities 
to the Spotlight roster. May you continue to be the outstanding 
persons that your schoolmates and teachers have found you to be.

humanities or social studies. Ap- 
plicants must have a B or better 
average and are urged to con- 
sider college teaching as a career. 
There is no mandate that the 
student must engage in college 
teaching upon completion of his 
graduate study, but it is hoped 
that he would consider the pros- 
pect of doing so. Thus, the 
foundation seeks to interest the 
most capable undergraduates in 

humanities or social science. 

Since American institutions of 
higher learning, like the public 
schools, will need many more 
capable instructors and pro- 
fessors, the Foundation desires 
to encourage young Americans 
to enter the fields of the 
humanities and social science, 
especially since there are already 
adequate fellowships, grants and 
grants-in-aid for study and work 
in the sciences.

Library Science Courses 
Aid Georjjia School Libraries 

The inauguration of the Library Science courses at Savannah 
State College during the 1960 summer school session is a shot-in- 
the-arm for school libraries of Georgia and the nation, because of 
the serious shortage of trained school library personnel. The pro- 

gram is designed to provide four 
basic courses amounting to 
twenty quarter hours as required 
by the State Department of Edu- 
cation. The four courses will 
provide the future teacher- 
librarian with knowledge of the 
important day-to-day operations 
and concerns of the school 
library, the . fundamentals of 
cataloging and classification, 
and the importance of book 
selection and reference service. 
Library Science 301, School 
Library Administration and 
Organization, and Library 
Science 302, Cataloging and 
Classification, are junior level 
courses: Library Science 401, 
School Library Materials, and 
Library Science 402, Basic Refer- 
ence Sources, will be offered as 
senior level courses. Each course 
is so designed that it will be 
independent of the other and 
will not require a prerequisite. 
All qualified juniors and seniors 
in elementary education, sec- 

ondary education and non- 
teaching areas are eligible to 
take the courses as electives. 
While the program is primarily 
an undergraduate pre-profes- 
sional program to meet certifi- 
cation requirements for teacher- 
librarians, these courses will 
provide a foundation for future 
graduate study in Library 

The State Department of Edu- 
cation feels so strongly about 
the need to strengthen school 
library service in Georgia, that 
in a recent letter to the College 
regarding teacher education, a 
special reference was made to 
the recently inaugurated library 
science program and a sug- 
gestion was made that the pro- 
gram should be publicized, and 
brought to the attention of Sa- 
vannah State College students. 

Library Science 301, School 
Library Administration, is of- 
fered during the Fall quarter.

Large Audience 

On Sunday evening. December 11 at 6 p.m. the Department of 
Fine Arts presented the Annual Christmas Concert in Meldrim 
Auditorium here at Savannah State College. The public was invited 
to attend. The Choral Society's renditions held the audience 

This year the presentation was 
devoted to excerpts from George 
F. Handel's oratorio, "The 
Messiah," and featured approxi- 
mately 110 voices. They repre- 
sented the combined Choral So- 
ciety [.College Choir and Con- 
cert Choir), the Men's Glee Club, 
faculty members, alumni, and 
community leaders in various 
fields. James Thompson, Jr., a 
member of the Department of 
Fine Arts' Faculty, was at the 
organ. The student accompanist 
was Rose Marie Overstreet, a 
.lophomore from Sylvania and a 
major in Music. 

Soloists were as follows: 
Juanita Moon, soprano, a junior 
from Savannah, and a voice 
major; Mildred Ellison, con- 

tralto, an alumna and public 
school teacher in the local 
system: James Fisher, tenor and 
local government worker; James 
Weldon Johnson, tenor, a fresh- 
man from Sylvania, and a major 
in voice; and Launey Roberts. 
Jr., bass, an alumnus and local 
school teacher. Coleridge A. 
Braithwaite. chairman of the 
Department of Fine Arts, was 

The Choral Society's perform- 
ance is one that will never be 
forgotten. The solos and arias, 
as well as the choruses, were 
very skillfully delivered. Con- 
gratulations to Dr. Braithwaite, 
his staff, and the members of 
the Choral Society for their very 
laudable performances. 

30 Honored at 

On November 17, thirty stu- 
dents were honored at our 
annual Honors Day Convocation 
liere at the college tor main- 
1 aining an average of "B" or 
higher during three quarters of 
the school year 1959-60. Dean T. 
C. Meyers presided and centered 
his address on the theme 
"Honors for the Present Crisis." 

In his address Dean Meyers 
stated that radical changes are 
taking place in all areas of 
human life. Man today has won 
a larger measure of freedom and 
opportunity, but, in large, op- 
portunity of the masses is largely 
conceited. Once a peak has been 
attained, the masses tend to 
lapse back into a state of com- 

The speaker continued his 
address by saying that today, 
the world is full of opportunities. 
We need to develop attitudes and 
skills to equip ourselves for the 
changes in social and economic 
life. Each person has a need to 
develop his individual talent. 
Everyone does not have the same 
ability. Success lies in strength 
of character and in the ability 
to perform various tasks. 

After his address, Dean Meyers 
presented the following honor 
students to the faculty and stu- 
dent body: Eva Boseman, 
Dorothy Brown, Ernest Brunson. 
Bobby Burgess, Retha L. Butler,

A Portrait of the Division of Technical 
Sciences . . . Expanded Program at SSC 

The great lack of manpower on all industrial fronts create new 
dimensions of training power. These new dimensions will require 
new dimensions of courage, flexibility, enthusiasm, initiative, imagi- 
nation, and leadership. 


December 15, 1960 

The division of technical 
sciences has as a general ob- 
jective; To provide for its stu- 
dents experiences that will aid 
them in earning a living in an 
occupation in which success is 
dependent largely upon tech- 
nical information and under- 
standing of the laws of science 
and technology as applied to 
modern design, products, distri- 
bution, and service. To attain 
this objective and to fulfill more 
specific ones for the various 
areas, the following curricula are 
offered within the division: 
Automotive technology, building 
construction technology, elec- 
tronics and electrical technology 
Home economics, industrial arts 
education, and industrial edu- 
cation are also included in this 
division's program at Savannah 
State College. 

While the expanded program 
in technology is really in its in- 
fancy, it should be noted that 
Savannah State College has, for 
a long time, offered training in 
industrial and industrial arts 
education, and also home eco- 

What implication does this ex- 
pansion have for the College, for 
the students, and for society? 
First of all, it means that Sa- 
vannah State College has made 
another step toward implement- 
ing her basic philosophy. . . . 
She has recognized the national 
need for tapping America's most 
valuable resource, thereby con- 
tributing to technological de- 
velopments of this nation. For 
the students future in tech- 
nology must be rewarding if 
ability, training, and apphcation 
are comparable to the demands 
of today's social order. It is a 
foregone conclusion that the de- 
mand has long surpassed the 
supply of technicians; and with 
the rapid advancements of tech- 
nology in present day society, 
the gap is becoming increasingly 
wider. A portrait of America's 
changing industrial pattern in- 
dicates that technicians are 
utilized in twenty-six per cent 
of our workers which are 
twenty-nine per cent. 

A rewarding future lies ahead 
for the qualified technician 
which Savannah State College is 
trying to develop. The cry of the 
lack of technicians in our in- 
dustrial society can be heard far 
and wide. Industrial research in- 
dicates that this great manpower 
shortage is not due so much in 
regards to quantity, but, rather 
quality, the number is important, 
but this problem muat be ap- 

proached carefully, observing 
quality in the same perspective 
with quality. Recognizing this, 
the staff of tlie division of tech- 
nical sciences and tlie College 
as a whole are trying to develop 
a program that will be com- 
mensurate with standards on a 
national level. With this ap- 
proach, and with a fair degree 
of success, society will benefit 
greatly from the program of- 
fered here at the College. 

What is a Technician? A tech- 
nician is a worker on a level be- 
tween the skilled tradesman and 
the professional engineer. His 
technical knowledge permits him 
to perform many of the duties 
formerly assigned to the gradu- 
ate engineer. Technicians design 
the mechanism, compute the 
cost, write the specifications, 
organize the production, and test 
the finished product. 

The technology program of- 
fered at Savannah State College 
leads to a batchelor of science 
degree in the following areas of 
specialization: Automotive tech- 
nology, where job opportunities 
are available in more specific 
areas including general auto 
repairs, auto body rebuilding, 
and auto machine shop; build- 
ing construction technology, 
which includes masonry, plumb- 
ing, surveying and estimating. 
mechanical and architectural 
drafting; electronics and elec- 
trical technology which includes 
electric repairs and installation, 
communication system repairs, 
radio and television repairs and 
installation. These are but some 
of the jobs that persons might 
be qualified to fulfill as a result 
of having successfully completed 
the prescribed course of study 
pertinent to the job classifica- 
tion. Training in small business 
operation and procedures are 
included in all of the technical 

Home economics, an old area 
of concentration at Savannah 
State College, but recently a part 
of the Division's expanded pro- 
gram, provides persons with ex- 
periences that may qualify them 
to fill numerous jobs in industry. 
A few industries utilizing home 
economics graduates are textile 
and clothing, food and food serv- 
ing, food processing, and home 


A Necessity in a 


By Lorenzo McNeal 

One of our most important 
human inheritances in a democ- 
racy is the citizen's right to an 
education. Often it is acknowl- 
edged and admitted that democ- 
racy is not an easy form of 
government. It is difficult to 
work properly, for it depends 
upon the character and intelli- 
gence of its citizens. It takes 
character to be honest about our 
earnings when we make out our 
income tax returns. It also re- 
quires intelligence to make true 
and accurate reports. Unless 
people are basically intelligent 
as the result of a reasonable 
education, it is impossible for 
them to make their contribu- 
tions to democracy wisely and 
advantageously. Every citizen 
has the right to receive the kind 
of education and moral discipline 
which will enable him to develop 
into a reliable and trustworthy 

"Because education is of vital 
importance in a democracy." one 
tends to ask this question: 'How 
important are our public schools 
in a democracy?' They seek to 
afford opportunities from which 
one can learn democracy by 
living it. They stress character, 
intelligence, and integrity. These 
are three necessities which help 
the citizen to take an active part 
in a democratic way of life. 

Democracy is endangered 
without the integrity and con- 
cern for the common good that 
Christ makes possible in the 
human heart. The word "in- 
tegrity" is important. It means 
honesty, purity, and uprightness. 
All of these qualities are in- 
herent in a sound education. 
Democracy needs informed 
citizens if tlie government of the 
people, for the people, and by 
the people is to remain as a 
beacon light, directing all peo- 
ple to a most beneficial and 
harmonious way of living to- 
gether cooperatively as God

Politics and World News 

By James Devoe 

Clark Gable, handsome 59-year-oId king of the movies, died 
peacefully of a heart attack at the Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, 
Wednesday night, November 16. It is indeed pathetic to know that 
he died four months prior to the birth of his first child. 

His fifth wife. Kay, rushed to his bedside but arrived moments 
too late. Mrs. Gable, who also suffers from a heart condition, was 
placed under the care of a physician. The movie world will miss 
a great actor, who was a man and a gentleman. 

An article written by the writer recently concerning the con- 
ditions prevailing in Cuba, stated that the only solution (at that 
time) was recognition of her status. Since then, however, con- 
ditions have worsened to the extent that President Eisenhower had 
to rush U. S. warships to Central America to aid revolt-threatened 
Guatemala and Nicaragua against any Communist-led attack. 
The reason for this action by the president was due to the charges 
made by Guatemala and Nicaragua's governments against Cuba's 
Prime Minister Fidel Castro. They charged him with helping the 
rebels to revolt. 

The United States' action in sending help to the Carribean 
area can be attributed to the fact that they hope to put the same 
type of surveillance there as that in the Formosa Straits. Another 
reason is to give clear admonition to Mr. Castro that further effort 
on his part to bring about a revolt will be harshly dealt with. 

A group of New Orleans, Louisiana, lawmakers has placed 
President-elect Kennedy in a very delicate position in that they 
want him to speak out on his position on federal-enforced inte- 
gration of schools in Louisiana, as well as in the rest of the South. 

They (the lawmakers) met Sunday, November 20. with Clark 
CUfford. Washington, D, C. attorney and one of Kennedy's "leading 
advisors." Mr. Clark acted as Mr. Kennedy's representative since 
Mr. Kennedy was not there. Any decision Mr. Kennedy makes will 
play a very important part in his coming administration. He is now 
under strenuous pressure because of the stand taken for integration 
during his campaign. The decision he makes, pro or con, will 
verify whether or not the voters can be assured of other promises 
he has made. 

President-elect Kennedy, at his first press conference following 
his election to the Presidency of the United States, named Andrew 
T. Hatcher to become his associate press secretary. 

Mr. Hatcher, wiio has been active in Democratic National and 
State politics since 1950, took a leave of absence from his job as 
Assistant Labor Commissioner of California to take part in the 
Kennedy campaign. 

College Emphasis on Religion 

By David Bodison 

What is Religion? To different 
people it has different mean- 
ings; however, generally it can 
be said that it is simply a way 
of life. 

In college usually students 
have a responsibility which is 
seldom fulfilled ; this responsi- 
bility is their religious responsi- 

Each year at this institution, 
as is the custom at many insti- 
tutions of this type, a week is 
set aside for emphasis to be 
placed upon religion. For one 
week members of the student 
body and faculty attend prayer 

meetings each morning, religious 
programs during the weekdays 
and churcli and Sunday School 
on Sunday. 

This year as the Religious 
Emphasis Week celebration ap- 
proaches, it is hoped that the 
majority of the students at this 
institution will fulfill their re- 
ligious responsibility by taking 
an active part in all phases of 
the celebration, not only on 
Sunday, but also during the 
weekly religious activities. 

By doing this they will truly 
let their lights shine before men, 
that they may see their good 
work and glorify God, our 
Father, which is in Heaven. 

What Does Christmas Mean to Yon? 

As the Christmas season approaches the thought that each 
year more people are getting farther away from the true meaning 
of Christmas enters the minds of many. 

Christmas to the "small fry" in the United States means Santa 
Claus. while in France it means Saint Nicholas, or in England it 
means Father Christmas. In spite of the fact that Santa is called 
by different names in various countries, to all cliildren he represents 
basically the same thing. To them he is a symbol of good tidings. 
They believe that if they make a special effort to be good as the 
Christmas season approaches, on Cliristmas eve Santa will come 
and fill their stockings with many of the things they have wanted. 

The idea of Santa Claus as a symbol of Christmas is quite 
appropriate for children, but what about adults and the meaning 
of Christmas to them? Well surprising as it may seem, to many 
adults the meaning of Christmas is not as good as a child's meaning. 

Often adults tend to think of Christmas solely as a time for 
having lots of fun going to parties and eating, drinking and being 
merry; or for some it is considered as the time for giving gifts with 
the idea of receiving gifts in return; still others consider it as a 
time for decorating houses extensively, in an effort to outshine 

One cannot say that leaving out the true meaning of Christmas 
is strictly a fault of the present generation because this trend has 
been developing long before the present generation came into 
existence. However, the present generation is not doing its part in 
helping to preserve the original meaning of Christmas, 

The question of how the present generation can do its part to 
help restore the original meaning of Christmas probably comes to 
mind. The answer to this question is an obvious one. The present 
generation can help to restore the original meaning of Christmas 
by observing it as a day set aside to honor Christ; by exhibiting 
Christ-like characteristics; by remembering the less fortunate, and 
giving for the spirit of giving and not for the purpose of receiving; 
and finally by linking Christ with Christmas, remembering that 
it is one of the most sacred times of the year.

Always Fiuish 

If a task is once begun 
Never leave it till it's done, 
Be the labor great or small. 
Do it well or not at all. 

— Unknown 

By Yvonne McGlockton 

On November 22, the march- 
ing, singing, worming, ducking, 
and all other phases of proba- 
tion came to an end, leaving 
many with the belief that the 
fall probation of 1960 was one of 
the liveliest in the history of our 

The spirit exhibited by all of 
the groups on probation was at 
an all-time high. The various 
groups of young ladies tried to 
out sing and out dance each 
other, while the various groups 
of young men tried to out sing 
and out march each other. At 
times the competition became so 
great that a bystander had a 
tough time deciding which group 
was presenting the best or 
funniest show. 

Although a large portion of 
probation was spent in provoking 
laughter, the entire period did 
not consist entirely of fun 
making. There were times when 
constructive things were done 
by the probates. For instance, 
the Kappa Dogs spent a portion 
of their time picking up litter 
on our campus, while the Alpha 
Dogs spent a portion of their 
time painting the benches in the 
Alpha's patio. 

For many of the probates, pro- 
bation was a hard struggle. At 
times it looked as though some 
of them would not endure the 
struggle. However, all of them 
lasted to the end, and as a result 
there are forty-one ( 41 ) new 
"Greeks" on our campus.

various groups are as follows:

Don't Quit 

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will. 
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill. 
When the funds are low and the debts are high. 
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. 
When care is pressing you down a bit 
Rest, if you must — but don't you quit.

Campus Spotlisht 

By Yvonne McGlockton 

Cnmpiis Spollighl, a regular Jcoliirc of Tiik Tictn's Roah. pays 
tribute 10 tiislinguishetl students who through their scliohrship, 
senice. loytilly anil iiitiiudes Iwvr iiii-rilnl ihi.s tribute. 



Charles Tootle 

Shirley Terry 

In this edition, the Spotlight casts its rays upon two outstand- 
ing students, Shirley Jean Terry and Charles Tootle. 

Shirley, a quiet, soft-spoken, and friendly young lady, hails 
from Dawson, Georgia, and is a graduate of Carver High of that 
city. While enrolled here at the College, she has participated 
in several phases of campus life; however, her most noteworthy 
contribution to campus life is in the role of pianist for the College 
Sunday School. This position she has held for three years. Her 
other extra-curricular activities are Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, the 
Y.W.C.A., Alpha Kappa Mu Tutorial System (tutor in mathematics), 
and the college band. 

Being, as she puts it, a "regular girl," Shirley dislikes people 
who are very moody. Her pet peeve is "for people to fail to com- 
plete statements, or make a statement which leaves one hanging 
in the air." Her hobby is music, and she enjoys listening to all 
types of music, from rock 'n roll to symphonic music. 

Shirley plans to complete her requirements for a B,S. degree 
in mathematics here at SSC in 1962. Afterwards she hopes to 
become a mathematics instructor in a public high school. 

"His life was gentle; and the elements so mixed in him, that 
Nature might stand up and say to all the world. This was a man!" 
— Shakespeare. 

In the foregoing lines, one can find the key to the personality 
of Charles Tootle. Charles, neat and debonair, has been a source 
of inspiration to many students and an asset to the school. Hail- 
ing from Savannah, he is a graduate of Alfred E. Beach High 
School of this city. Currently, he is doing student teaching at 
Sol C. Johnson High School of this city. Prior to going on the field, 
he was affiliated with several campus organizations, such as the 
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Pan-Hellenic Council. Tiger's Roar 
Staff iformer sports editorl, and the Social Science Club. 

Hobby-wise, he enjoys sports, dancing, and reading. He dis- 
plays his love for sports by serving as a student manager for the 
college-football team. His philosophy of life is a simple one— "It 
can be done." Ambition-wise, he hopes to enter social work after 
completing the requirements for a B.S. degree in social science.

The New Look 

With the passing of the Con- 
tinental style, America is be- 
ginning to feel the influence of 
the New London Line. Unlike 
American traditional natural- 
shoulder coats, the body is 
shaped— i.e., the jacket moves 
in slightly at the waist; the coat 
can be buttoned to accentuate 
this curve to the waist. The coat 
13 longer than the Continental 
jackets and because the waist is 
suppressed, flares out slightly. 
From the back, too. the lines are 
longer, shaped, and flared. The 
trousers — as in all current 
Silhouettes — are tapered slim. 

The new natural topcoat is 
shaped to the LEAN SILHOU- 
ETTE. By means of a lower 
collar . . . shghtly shorter length 
and tapered sleeves, a trimmer 
bodyline has been achieved in 
the classic London manner. 

As trousers and slacks go 
slimmer, shoe fashion rises to 
the occasion with new Leather 
High-Lights. Our latest fashions 
in shoes are burnished olives

"Elegant Coats in Winter White" 

Just a few seasons back, the 
white coat for winter was a 
costly luxury that few women 
could afford. However, this 
winter, it's for everyone. It can 
serve as a second coat in your 
wardrobe, because it can be used 
for evening wear, and it lends 
to traveling from one climate to 

Beautifully cut from pure 
wool, the white coat provides a 
dramatic background for ac- 
cessories. It can be sparked with 
color or worn with white gloves, 
a white chiffon scarf, a white 
mink or a fake fur hat. 

Cut in lightweight wool (a soft 
fleece or a nearly weightless 
hopsack), the winter white 
coat can be of service from No- 
vember to April. It is meant to 
be a working part of a ward- 
robe rather than a luxury to be 
worn a few times, then set aside. 

Generally, the styling for these 
winter white coats is simple and 
pure of line. Often they are 
trimmed and bound in white 
satin, a tiny touch to heighten 
the dazzling effect of the white. 

A good many women are going 
to have an immediate feeling 
that the winter white coat will 
present constant cleaning prob- 
lems. Actually, this should not 
be so if it is used as a second 
coat in a winter wardrobe.

The Tiger's Roar Forum: 
A Column of Oj>inion 

By Annette Kennedy 

Much concern has been given to the status of the social life 
here at Savannah State College. Therefore, this article of opinions 
shall be concentrated on views expressed by several students here 
at our institution in regards to social life. 

Question: What are your viewpoints concerning the social Jife 
here at SSC? 


Dora Myles. junior, Savannah— The social life on this campus 
needs much improvement. It will take the effort of the people in 
authority as well as the students to cope with this problem. 

Jean Quarterman. senior. Walthourville— The social life on this 
campus should be improved. It seems to be in a state of depression. 
If we as students could find out where the fault lies, maybe we 
could correct it. 

Julia Choely. junior, Warrenton — I think the recreational ac- 
tivities are very inadequate and not well planned. There are not 
enough activities after classes are over and during the weekends. 

Bertha Kornegay. senior, Hazlehurst^ — The center is absolutely 
too small for the number of students on the campus, and the 
equipment in the center is limited and not up-to-date. Since the 
center does play a large part in our social life, I feel that is 
the main reason why social interest is lagging. 

Marjorie Howell, freshman. Lumber City^I have fulfilled my 
social desires. However. I feel that the social activities on campus 
can be improved. 

Theresa Lewis, freshman, Madison— I think the social life at 
SSC is well planned. The school offers a number of activities for 
students with different tastes. 

Abraham Johnson, junior. Savannah — I think the social life 
could really be improved, especially the recreational aspect. There 
are not enough sports for girls and non-varsity students. 

Kenneth Alexander, junior. Savannah — The social life definitely 
needs improvement. The activities should be so planned as to bring 
about a closer relationship among the students and a feeling of 
school spirit. 

Percy Harden, sophomore. Savannah — The social activities are 
adequately planned; however, the students do not show enough 
interest in participating in these activities. 

Betty Jean Nunnally, sophomore, Statesboro — The social life 
could be improved upon in the area of cultural activities. I do not 
feel that there are enough activities of this nature taking place 
on campus. 

Creative Poetry 


By Eddie Bryant 
If I could master words 

and give them all to you. 
In such a way you would under- 
that all my love is true. 
If my lips could only speak 

of the many things my eyes see 
And teil them all to you. my love 
you would know how much you 
mean to me. 
If the moon and stars would 
cease to shine 
and all this world lose sight, 
With you in my arms, my loving 
forever there would be light. 
If my love could only be 
or spread out before your 

Then and only then, perhaps you 
would say 
that our love would never part. 

Fail Muses 

By Charles H. Lee 

Welcome fall with your magic 

Why color all nature in such a 

Are you afraid of the summer's 

And the budding again of the 

lovely fern? 
Fear not. you are the subject of 

the day. 
Then splash your colors in jovial 

Till all nature blends in sweet 

And a beauteous season is the 

world's reward.

monthly feature of the Tiger's 
Roar ; it pays tribute to the 
teachers of this institution for 
their outstanding contributions 
and services to the students and 
the college. This month it is 
more than a pleasure for the 
writer of this column to have

a small portion of another one 
of our instructors' personalities, 
Dr. Norman V. McCullough.

reared, and partially educated in 
Youngstown, Ohio. He attended 
Covington Elementary School, 
Hayes Junior High School, and

standing student and exhibited 
high scholastic abiUty. In 1949, 
he earned the B.A. and B.S. de- 
grees; being one of the few to 
earn two degrees at one com- 
mencement, also indicated his

SSC Tigers Upset 
Clark College. 6-0 

The SSC Tigers upset a power- 
ful Clark College squad. 6-0. with 
the only score as a result of a 
blocked punt. 

In the first quarter the Clark 
College Panthers penetrated deep 
into the Tiger's territory three 
times only to be stopped by a 
powerful Tiger defensive wall. 
The third time the Panthers 
penetrated into the Tiger's terri- 
tory, the Panthers went for 
broke trying their powerful full- 
back, Curtis Cockett. on all four 
plays from scrimmage, and even 
then, their best power man was 
unable to gain anymore than 
one-half yard against the power- 
ful Tiger goal line stance. 

The second quarter saw the 
Tiger's daredevil end, Fred 
Carter, deflect a Panther punt, 
knocking it in the air where end 
William Robins caught the ball 
and raced some 17 yards to pay- 
dirt for the only score of the 

The quarter ended in a fine 
display of defensive abilities and 
as the half ended, the score 
stood at 6-0 in SSC's favor. 

In the third quarter both 
teams threatened deep in each 
others territory a number of 
times only to be stopped by each 
others defense. Also in the third 
quarter, the Panthers blocked a 
punt deep in the Tiger's territory 
only to lose the ball on a fumble 
recovered by Robert Leonard. 

The fourth and final quarter 
also was a show of defensive 
power, with each team threaten- 
ing at least once. 

The outstanding performers 
for the Tigers were as follows; 
Fullback Robert Leonard, who 
only last week was hurt in the 
game between the Tigers and 
Alabama State College and was 
believed to be out for the rest 
of the season but afer working 
on his ailments during the week 
was able to play and display his 
very fine defensive ability. 
Sharing the lead honors with 
Leonard was Fred Carter who 
also displayed his fine defensive 

Other outstanding players 
were Wendell Mcintosh, Eddie 
"The Great" Bell, Tommy Davis, 
John Strong. Harold Cleveland. 
Elijah McGraw. and Johnny 
McHellen, and Bobby Dunbar. 

During the half-time inter- 
mission the bands of Savannah 
State College and Clark College 
presented the greatest half-time 
performance put on by two col- 
leges ever to be seen in this area. 
The Savannah State College 
Band is under the direction of 
Bandmaster Samuel Gill. The 
Bandmaster of the Clark College 
Band is Dr. Wayman Carver.

Strong, a 180-pound senior 
right halfback, streaked 61 and 
five yards for the first half 
touchdowns that broke the backs 
of the invading Lions. He totaled 
104 yards on 12 carries and 
added a two-point conversion to 
his day's work. 

The victory completed the 
campaign of Coach Richard 
Washington's Tigers with a rec- 
ord of three victories, five de- 
feats and a tie, Paine lost all 
seven of its battles. 

Strong's sprinting, a 64 yard 
pass play from Harold Cleveland 
to Henry Saunders, and a trio of 
two-point conversions gave Sa- 
vannah State a 24-0 halftime 
lead that was too much for the 
undermanned Lions. 

Paine came back after the 
intermission and drove 65 yards 
for its touchdown. Charlie Pryor

dashed 34 yards to the two. Two 
plays later, Leonard plunged for 
the touchdown. 

Strong shared starring honors 
with Leonard, freshman half- 
back Tommy Davis, and quarter- 
back Cleveland. Leonard col- 
lected a pair of two-point con- 
versions in addition to his touch- 
down, and totaled 70 yards in 
10 carries. 

Davis added 76 yards in seven 
trips. Cleveland completed three 
of four passes for 112 yards. 
Another fullback, John Edwards, 
picked up 49 yards in two runs. 

SSC easily dominated the first 
half, netting 236 yards while 
holding the visitors from Au- 
gusta to two on the ground and 
75 in the air. Paine added only 
19 ground yards in the second 
half, totaling 21 for the day. 

Losing three fumbles spoiled 
the Tiger's chances of piling up 
more points in the second half.

— Tlrat only one young man 
was named to Who's Wiio In 
American Colleges and Universi- 
ties, 1960-61 Edition, on our 
campus out of sixteen so

and was paced by guard Cleo 
Hill, who scored 43 points. Hill 
is a two-time most valuable 
player in the CIAA conference

was one of his better nights as 
he scored with hook shots, set 
shots, lay-ups, and a deadly 
jump shot. Winston-Salem had

Southern is sparked by a brilliant 
scoring tandem of Bond and 
Thomas. The Southern Jaguars 
have four of last season's five 
starters returning. Last season 
in the first round of the NAIA 
District VI-B Championships, 
Southern dumped Dillard from 
the competition and advanced to

MISS JAZZ FESTIVAL; Lottie Sheilnian is crowned by Eva 
Boseman, student body president, during intermission at the Jack 
Wilson Concert. 

Concert Presented For Jazz Fans 

A crowd of approximately 200 
modern jazz fans were enter- 
tained by the original piano 
stylings of Argo recording artist. 
Jack Wilson, and his trio at the 
jazz concert presented Novem- 
ber 10, in Meldrim Auditorium 
by the Student Government As- 
sociation of Savannah State Col- 

An added attraction of tlie 
evening was the crowning of 
Lottie Shellman as "Miss Jazz 
Festival" during the intermis- 
sion. Lottie, a sophomore from 
Mcintosh, won out over four 
other contestants in a money 
raising contest for the title. 
Others competing for the title

dred Harrison, freshman: and

Evans Trio and on five LP's with 
Dinah Washington. He has made 
appearances at top night spots 
in Chicago, such as The Black 

Commenting on the size of the 
audience. Wilson stated "I'd 
rather play for a small group 
who appreciates modern jazz, 
than to a large audience that is 
noisy and distracting." 

Immediately following the 
concert a reception was held in 
the College Center. "Miss Jazz 
Festival," Lottie Shellman, and 
the Wilson Trio formed a re- 
ception line to greet students 
who praised the concert highly. 


Miss Loreese E. Davis. Dean of 
Women at Savannah State Col- 
lege, met with the college female 
population in a special assembly 
Wednesday. November 16, in 
Meldrim Auditorium, for the 
purpose of discussing the As- 
-nciation of Women Students. 

Miss Davis explained that the 
-A.-^sociation of Women Students 
i.s a service group dedicated to 
cultivating an attitude toward 
pieparing women to govern 
tliemselves throughout their col- 
lege careers, and thereby in- 
crease their ability and desire 
to fulfill the role of educated 
and competent women in a 
democratic society to the high- 
est degree of social, physical, in- 
tellectual, and spiritual achieve- 

At the meeting a nominating 
( ommittee was elected by the 
wojnen students to nominate 
candidates for officers of the 
A.s.-;Qciation of Women Students. 
< )ne representative from each 
class, was selected for the com- 
ni ittee : Nora Williams. Fresh- 

man class, Dorothy Carter, 
Sophomore class, Henrietta 
Meeks, Junior class, and Eva 
Boseman. Senior class. 

AH women of Savannah State 
College are members of the As- 
sociation of Women Students 
The governing body, however, 
consists of the elected officers. 
a representative from each class 
and one from each of the female 
organizations on the campus. 

After the business portion of 
the meeting, some young ladies 
modeled some unbecoming 
fashions and Miss Davis di.s- 
cussed some interesting factors 
concerning dress on the campus 
and proper grooming. 

In her discussion she stated 
that some of the campus fads 
are being taken to their extremes 
such as the short dresses, and 
the short and tight skirts. She 
reminded the young ladies that 
"The purpose of style is to sell 
goods, but before buying them 
one should know what style is 
best suited for her particular 
figure and personality." 


Talent Show 

A record - breaking crowd 
packed Meldrim Auditorium Fri- 
day night. December 2. at 8; 00 
o'clock to attend one of the most 
spectacular programs of the sea- 
son—The Faculty-Staff Talent 
Show, presented by Camilla 
Hubert Hall Dormitory Council. 
The Rockettes— a female faculty- 
staff chorus line — thrilled the 
audience as they chorused to the 
beat of two numbers — "Country 
Garden" and "Winter Wonder- 
land." If the thunderous ovation 
received by Joan Gordon and 
Albertha Boston is any indica- 
tion of their appeal, it might be 
said that they were both very 
much in the "spotlight." 
Whether to the melodious strains 
of "Trees," as sung by Dr. Gor- 
don, or to the comical rendition 
of a symphony, as played by Miss 
Boston, everyone will readily 
agree that both performers 
captured the audience. 

Martha Avery and Arthur 
Brentson were both captivating 
in a profound dramatic pre- 
sentation of Paul Lawrence Dun- 
bar's "In the Morning." No less 
entertaining was G e r a 1 d i n e 
Abernathy's very amusing in- 
terpretation of "Angelina John- 
son," also by Paul Lawrence 

More on the classical side may 
be attributed the renditions by 
Elonnie Josey, WiUiam Bowens, 
and Madeline Harison Dixon. Mr. 
Josey's electrifying performance 
of "Choral" and "Priere a Notre- 
Dame" taken from SUITE 
GOTHIQUS by Leon Boellman. 

Participants in the chorus line 
(The Rockettes) were Misses Al- 
bertha Boston. Althea Morton, 
Marcelle Rhodriquez and 
Mesdames Ernestine Bertrand, 
Beautine Hardwick, Emma Mur- 
ray, and Armicie Sanderson.

Paintinijs Are 
Published in Book 

The paintings and drawings of 
Phillip J. Hampton, assistant 
professor of fine arts at Savan- 
nah State College, provide in 
part a contribution to the latest 
literary work of Cedric Dover of 
Brentford, Middlesex, England. 
This very recent publication is 
entitled, American Negro Art. 

American Negro Art is pro- 
fusely illustrated with the works 
of Negro artists from various 
eras of this nation's history. It 
is immediately evident that the 
author has been very effective 
in communicating to the world 
the significant contribution of 
Negro artists. It is expected that 
American Negro Art will satisfy 
the hunger of those who might 
have suspected that the Negro

Presideufs Message 

W lial Fa(l<n> I)('\(l(»p Maliirily ami Rc-^poii^ 
in Coll('«:o Shideiils':' 

On every college campus, one finds students who vary con- 
siderably in the degree of maturity and the exercise of responsi- 
bility. These variations exist among students of the senior college 
level as well as among those on the junior level. Many factors 
contribute to the formation and development of these character- 
istics. Certainly, early schooling in the elementary and secondary 
programs contributes to the development of these characteristics. 
During the process of schooling, however, the influence of the home 
and the community play important roles in the development of 
these characteristics. It is t« be expected that these characteristics 
will be developed at a more rapid rate as changes take place in 
our culture. 

The earlier participation of youth in the running of our local, 
national, and international affairs requires that these character- 
istics be placed on the critical list in educational programs. Maturity 
and responsibility do not develop and grow like subject matter in 
any of the recognized disciplines. Tliey are more likely to flourish 
in an environment or situation which provides students witli oppor- 
tunities to exercise them. In some colleges, one finds students who 
are able to make mature judgments, assume leadership responsi- 
bilities, and act on a high level ol self-direction. 

As in all other forms of effective education, effort must be 
made to develop these characteristics. In general students who 
show high development in these areas enhance their continued 
growth through the use of opportunities to develop them. Greater 
freedom allowed students in our colleges and larger participation 
in the operation and running of the college program provide an 
atmosphere lor unlimited growth. To utilize this atmosphere and 
opportunity, one must plan specifically to do more of the things 
which indicate self-direction and maturity. 

If the goals and main objectives of the college are to be realized, 
larger numbers of students must plan to become self-directive, 
critical r^: their education, and planners for improvement and up- 
grading of the entire program. This statement assumes that 
students have accepted the understanding that they must educate 
themselves rather than rely upon their teachers for the entire 
process. Suggestions for improvement, willingness to assunie in- 
dividual and group responsibility, desire to see more than one side 
of a question, stamina to stand alone on the basis of facts, and 
willingness to express and substantiate one's point of view represent 
some of the activities which contribute to the development of thes^ 
desirable characteristics. Effective results can be achieved in the 
academic disciplines if maturity and responsibility are present in 
large amounts.

gratulations to you on becoming members of the college family.

pate with your student government at any time.

present, and a very informative business session was held. Many 
project-s are being undertaken by the council and because of thi.^ 
we are in direct need of fellow students to come in and offer their 
services. Immediate attention must be given to our chapel pro- 
gram v/hich will be presented during Religious Emphasis Week.

Pol it Irs and W Orhl JSeivs 

By James DeVoc 

Students at the University of Georgia should extend a welcome 
hand to the two Negroes who have broken the segregation barrier 
at the University. This statement was made by Mr. Ralph McGill. 
publisher of the Atlanta Constitution. Mr. McGill continued "that 
an act such as this would shut the mouths of slander in Moscow, 
in Peiping. in Cuba, and in all the centers where the Ugly South- 
erners have been of so much assistance to the communistic attack 
on American principles." He went on to say that students at the 
university have a God-sent opportunity to dc a service for the 
South which we all live. Destiny has given them an opportunity 
to erase the picture of the 'Ugly Southerner' so starkly and dis- 
turbingly shown to the nation and to the world at Little Rock 
and New" Orleans." 

Mr. McGill's statements were made in reference to a federal 
judge ruling tiiat the all-white University of Georgia must let 
down its segregation barriers and admit two Negro applicants. 
Federal Judge W. A. Boutle. in handing down the decision, said 
the two Negro applicants. Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton E 
Holmes, both of Atlanta, arc fully qualified for admission to the 
state university and would have been admitted except for their race. 

It is time for all Americans to realize that the day of inevit- 
ability is here. Trying to deter the progress of any segment of our 
society is. in itself, a blow to the progress that our great country 
has made. America cannot be strong in one section and weak in 
another. We, as Americans, are at the threshold of a very im- 
portant decision^ — whether or not we want to retain our leadership 
of world power not only as far as Military Might, but in leadership 
and in respectability. The decision is ours, and only we can make 
it. To do so. it will take the cooperation ol every single, wonderful, 
mindful American existing in this great land, I know my decision, 
^what is yours?

It gives me great pleasure at this time to welcome all 
of you back from your victorious tiiumphs in Xew Orleans.

You are again on the road to this same type of superiority. 
We are planning a college-wide reception to be given in 
your honor during the second week of the winter quarter. 
You will be notified of the time and place in the very near 
future. We will also honor Mr, John R. Strong for his out- 
tanding achievements in the athletic field.

throughout the season.

This painting was produced in

Another work is "The Har-

which was developed over a two- 
year period. "The Harbinger" 
presents an expressionistic ap-

accents of blue, To the artist 
this painting seems to impart a 
feeling of warmth and virbating 

The figure in this painting is 
a girl with a Ijird and cage. The 
artist is reluctant to make verba! 
descriptions of his work, for it i.^ 
felt that ail is a form of uni- 
versal communication which 
says many things at one time 
tu as many individuals, Hence, 
wliat a work reveals to one need 
not communicate the same 
message tu another. The vicwei

must make efforts to absorb for 
himself, if he can, the message 
that words could never convey, 
fur it must be accepted that all

Training; in Business 

At the beginning of the winter 
quarter the Division of Business 
installed new clerical equipment 
to increase efficiency. The Di- 
vision has long been known to 
turn out top students. Approxi- 
mately 87 per cent of SSC's 
clerical staff is composed of 
business majors from the col- 
lege. For this reason and several 
others that can be cited, the 
department needed modern 
equipment to produce better 
trained business students. 

H, E, Anderson, chairman of 
the division commenting stated, 
"today's education is a modern 
education, made so by modern 
equipment." The new equipment 
will be used to aid the students 
in typing courses, and office 
machine course. 

There is still an urgent need 
for additional machines, in the 
Division, but until this action 
is taken, the educational process 

moves forward.

tribute to disiinguishvil sfiiilvnis who through their scholarship, 
service, loyally mid iittitniln hurr iiirritril this trihutv. 

In this edition the Spotlight salutes one senior and one junior 
—Gladys Lois Lambert and Richard Mondell Coger, 

Neat and petit, Gladys is a native Savannahian and a graduate 
of Alfred E. Beach High School of this city. 

Gladys, a 1960-61 "Who's Who Among Students in American 
Colleges and Universities" honoree, was the 1960 recipient of the 
"Mantle of Athena" (mantle given to the woman in the junior class 
with the highest scholastic average) 

She is currently a senior, majoring in social science and minor- 
ing in English, and is affiliated with several campus activities. 
Among them are the Student National Education Association, the 
Social Science Club (reporter), the Committee on General Edu- 
cation, Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society (treasurer), and Delta 
Sigma Theta Sorority (financial secretary). 

She is a typical young lady wlio stands out among other women. 
Intelligent, soft-spoken, and friendly, she makes people feel con- 
tent being around her. 

Like most well-rounded persons, she enjoys hobbies. Currently 
her hobbies include collecting classical records, playing badminton, 
and reading. 

Her "pet peeve" and philosophy are similar. She dislikes hear- 
ing people make time-consuming statements and she believes 
that "the wise man thinks before speaking." 

Gladys is a senior majoring in social science, with the ambition 
of going to graduate school and becoming a social worker. 

"Knowing thyself." says Richard Coger. "is the key to success." 
By this he means that each individual should be aware of his own 

Richard, a 1958 graduate of Jasper High School of Ridgeland. 
South Carolina, can be described with the following three "C's" — 
cooperative, competent, and courteous. He is always willing to give 
a helping hand, often far beyond the line of duty, and is highly 
efficient in his work. 

Coger, the highest ranking industrial education major at the 
college, proves the fact that extra-curricular activities and scholar- 
ship do go together. In his two years stay at this institution, he 
has participated extensively in campus activities. 

Currently he is active in the Crescent Club of Phi Beta Sigma 
Fraternity (president), the Committee on Student Activities. Tech- 
nical Science Club. Business Club, Student National Education 
Association, and the Interest Group of Alpha Kappa Mu Honor 
Society. In addition, although he is not a member of the Student 
Government Association, he has attended every meeting of the 
Association since lost September, and has diligently worked with 
the group in all of its activities. 

Coger enjoys writing poetry, going to the movies, and partici- 
pating in fencing matches. This past summer, on a chapel program 
presented by the Physical Education Department, he displayed his 
fencing ability by defeating his opponent in a fencing match. 

After graduating he plans to attend graduate school. His 
ambition is to become a manager of a construction company.

The new sheep skin look that will be seen this year will be 
the luxurious peltskin coat with the shawl collar, wool lining. 
black toggle buttons, and pocket and sleeve tabs. Also new is the 
reversible all weather outercoat. It has thick wale corduroy on 
one side and a warm, bright will blanket plaid on the other. If 
worn on the corduroy side, the plaid shows up at the shawl collar. 

For many, it will be the compact coat. We can't promise that it 
will solve your parking problems— but. this shorter, swagger coat 
offers uncompromising design and tailoring in the Silhouette line. 

For the changing man. watch for the increasing line of styles 
from London: like the grey and brown checked topcoat, with classic 
raglan-sleeves, balcollar, slash pockets, and center vent, or the 
glen-plaid English worsted suit with slightly built-up shoulders 
and deep side vents. The sleeves are set-in in front and raglan 
in back. This coat also has balcollar. flapped chest pocket, and 
olive wool lining. 

The popularity of olive-tone suits has inspired consumers to 
desire a new shoe color. Burnished Olive^A plain toe. with per- 
forations at the border of the vamp, or a moccasin design, not 
quite as high, with a strapover instep and elastic side vents. 

Club and Campus men who continue to like the easy, un- 
affected look of traditional clothing should have a good idea about 
the cut of their clothes. The shoulders must be natural, the waist 
unsuppressed, and the jacket falling in straight hanging lines. 
The Villager, is a newly designed type of outer coat, that will be 
seen on campus this year. It has removable hood and woolen 
toggles, and Continental knee length styling, in colors of brown, 
olive gray and black. 

^^No Radu'iil (Jiaii^it's Due in Silhouette 
or Hem Leiijjth^'^ 

By Geraldine Lindsey 

If this year turns out to be a fashion shocker, no one will be 
more surprised than the men and women who manufacture, buy 
and sell women's clothes. 

One reason why women's fashions will continue to move in the 
same direction they took in 1960 is because of the business outlook. 
Until the economists and the new administration decide which 
way the American economy is going, the people who earn their 
bread and butter from selling women's clothes are tempted to be 
cautious. Business is neither good enough nor bad enough to justify 
a radical change of silhouette. 

Based on a conviction that this year will represent evolution 
from its immediate past, here are some educated guesses about 
fashion for this year: 

No new startling silhouettes. Just a continuation of styles that 
are shaped simply and conservatively, creeping slightly closer to 
the body yet still manitaining a wide distance from the plastered 
look. Advance rumor from Paris for Spring is the bias cut — just 
another version of this fitted look. 

The color both continues stimulating women to the highest 
standards of individuality and discretion. The timid soul who 
ventures into a pink suit for the first time will then dare to contrast 
it with a turquoise or grass green hat. Navy blue stockings may 
be the companion to a white dress. 

Prices of clothes will stay up and so will hemlines. Hairdressers 
will go on bobbing hair. This year's short haircuts will continue to 
be puffy but it will be more romantic, with waves and curls added. 

The skirt will make a comeback as women tire of pants. Long 
skirts will claim the affection of trousered hostesses. But the culotte 
—a hybrid that draws a conservative to daring— will endure as a 

Bathing suit manufacturers will push modesty with covered 
up styles, but women who have attempted the Bikini will remain 
loyal to bared midriff. 

FUN FARE Creative Poetry 


One reason Americans won't 
go Communist is that when they 
hear the shout. "Workers, arise." 
they think it's time for the cof-

Modern paintings are like 
women. You'll never enjoy them 
if you try to understand them. 

In marriage it's not as impor-

to be the right partner.

and the deeper it sinks into the

Let not your heart enclose an 
empty void. 

Nor let it rattle like the sum-

But keep it flowing with the 
good things of life,

Greet the rising of the most

And hall of your day's work is 

already done.

3. Learn to read her signals. 

Many men suspect — and many 
women cheerfully admit — that 
women have a language of their 
own. expressed in tonal vari- 
ations and pauses between words 
as well as in the words them- 
selves. You'll never speak it, but 
for optimum success with 
bilingual ladies, it behoaves you 
to understand a little of it. 

4, Act jealous. A man who's 
unreasonable — within reasonable 
limits, of course — is one of the 
most effective ego-builders a 
woman can have. Therefore, 
grumble a bit when she smiles 
fetchingly at another man.

The weekly Journalism Work- 
shop was resumed January 6. in 
Meldrim Hall for the purpose of 
discussing methods of writing 
news and to prepare for the 11th 
Annual Southern Regional Press 
Institute, which will be held here 
February 16 and 17. 

Mr. Wilton C. 0cott, adviser to 
the publication, informed the 
group that the student newspa- 
per staff will serve as consult- 
ants and directors. 

He listed some basic rules con- 
cerned with writing news stories, 
specifically that news is written 
from an objective viewpoint and 
not from a subjective viewpoint 
"News is anything that appeals 
to the readers." said Mr, Scott as 
he further stated, "everything 
the writer thinks is news may 
not be news in the sight of his 
readers. Therefore, a real writer 
has to find out his readers' in- 
terests, before he attempts to 
find the news." 

Mr. Scott also discussed the 
importance of accuracy in writ- 
ing, the use of factual informa- 
tion, the necessity of story-tell- 
ing pictures, and the use and 
purpose of captions. 

Yvonne McGlockton, associate 
editor, presided over the meeting. 

The workshop is designed to 
acquaint interested students in 
layout, editing, interviewing, 
news writing, and other phases 
of newspaper work. 

The Annual Planning Confer- 
ence of the Georgia Youth In- 
dustrial Education Association 
was held on January 14. 1961. at 
Savannah State College. The 
purpose of the conference was to 
complete plans for the Anijual 
Youth Conference, Trades Con- 
test and Industrial Exhibit to be 
held at Savannah State on 
March 23. 

The Conference was held in 
the new Technical Science Cen- 
ter and began at 9 a.m, with 
registration. The morning ses- 
sion was presided over by Albert 
T. Smith. President. GYIEA Ad- 
visory Board. Remarks were 
given by William B. Nelson, Di- 
rector. Division of Technical 
Sciences, Savannah State; and 
A. Z. Traylor. Sr.. Teacher Train- 
er. Trades and Industrial Edu- 
cation. State Department of 

Trades and Industrial Educa- 
tion Teachers, Industrial Arts 
Teachers, and Diversified Co- 
operative Training Coordinators 
each formed groups to discuss, 
report and make recommenda- 
tions for the forthcoming March 
Conference, contest and exhibits. 
Following the group meeting, 
committees were appointed. 

The conference delegates 
lunched in the dining hall, after 
which they went into the after- 
noon session with A. T. Smith 
presiding. The afternoon session 
consisted of committee meetings 
and committee reports. The del- 
egates had dinner and the meet- 
ing adjourned. 

The following teachers were 
requested to serve as members 
of the Planning Committee: Wil- 
son Bryant, Commodore Conyers.

cently been added to the require- 
ments of Social Science majors

Suggestions for Operating 
a School Newspaper 

Very few people realize that a great deal of hard work and time 
is required to publish a school newspaper. Most of them think 
that all the staff does is write the news stories and other articles 
for the paper and the printer does the rest. They are not aware 
of the work that has to be done by a large or small number of 
students along with assistance from advisors in order to publish a 
school paper, 

The first step toward publishing a paper is to organize a staff. 
The following is a typical school newspaper staff organization: 

Staff Organization 



President. Savannah State 
College, is Honorary Direetor. 

President's Message 

The importance of the Press in modern life and the future of 
our goals and ideals should always be kept in the forefront of our 
planning and thinking. The number of Americans unable to read 
and write diminishes each day while the number of potential 
readers increases at a more rapid rate. It is to be expected that 
the materials for the readers would be improved in quality and 
variety. The people who do the writing will need to be able to 
express and report accurately the ideas to be conveyed. It is through 
education and training that writers for newspapers, journals, and 
periodicals develop the proficiency required for a growing society. 
In every school, some individuals should be encouraged and trained 
to develop their ability to express themselves through writint?;. Some 
will need to be able to interpret, to compare, and evaluate as well 
as report news and information. 

It is expected that the Annual Press Institute sponsored by 
Savannah State College will provide some leadership, direction, 
and inspiration for the growth of this area. The youth in our 
schools need the contacts and the experiences whicli are shared 
during such a meeting. The experiences should prove valuable to 
all participants. Many who participate may not make careers in 
this area, but the ability to profit by the experiences will be of a 
decided advantage in whatever area they pursue careers. There is 
an ever increasing demand for writers and reporters who have 
special training in the scientific and technological fields.

most important stories available. All other stories are arranged 
to suit the major stories. The front page is the most important page 
of the newspaper, and the eighth column (the last column at the 
right), is the most important column of the front page. 
Proofreading the News 
Proofreading is a two-man job. It consists of one person read- 
ing aloud the original copy while the other corrects the proofs. The 
purpose of this is to see that the galley proof follows the original 
typewritten story. The person who proof-reads can correct mis- 
spelled words, incorrect English and other such blunders that have 
been overlooked. 

Securing Advertisements 

The number of advertisements that a staff secures for a paper 
is largely determined by the procedures used in soliciting ads. Be- 
fore beginning to solicit some preparation should be made. This 
includes listing definite pro.spects, having in mind the size and 
the space they could really take: and also having a complete 
knowledge of the rates and provisions of your advertisements. 

Being a member of a school new.spaper staff gives one an oppor- 
tunity to broaden his scope of knowledge. Such activities as these 
place emphasis on scholarship, leadership, and citizenship. In 
addition, they increase one's desire and appreciation of cultural 



Club and 

Social News 








Business Managei 

The person who heads the staff is called the editor-in-chief. 
His duties include yetting the paper out on time and supervising 
each step of the production, from gathering and writing tlie news 
to reading the final proofs. 

The editor-in-chief sliould possess five main qualities according 
to Water Rae. author of Editing Small Newspapers. They are as 

1. He should have leadership ability: if he possesses leadership, 
his attitude toward policies and principles should be of the 
highest standards. 

2. He must liave tact; that is, know how to deal with people 
in general. 

3. He should be an able executive; if he possesses this quality, 
he will organize his staff in order that the work will be 
adequately planned and distributed. 

4. He should know his job. This includes knowing his respon- 
sibilities and duties. 

5. He should have high moral standards: if he is going to 
interpret to the public what is good and desirable he must 
be a worthy person himself. 

After selecting the editor-in-chief the next step is to select 
an editorial staff. The job of this staff is to select and arrange 
the contents of the paper. Before organizing this staff the capacity 
of each member should be considered, so that they will be placed 
in the best positions according to their capacities. 

The business staff plays a role just as important as the editorial 
staff, because it controls tlie finance and other business matters. 
The business staff makes contacts with the printing company, sets 
up the advertising rates, and solicits advertisements and sub- 

The advisor or advisors are usually selected by the principal 
or the president of the school. Theye are the persons who have 
authority over the editor-in-chief. They are usually the last persons 
to check the material before it is sent to the printer. They also 
attend staff meetings. 

Obtaining News for the Paper 

Often the staff is faced with the problem of getting enough 
news for the paper. If the editor wants to be sure of having enough 
news for the paper, then he should make out an assignment sheet. 
This sheet will have the names of the staff members, the articles 
and stories for them to write, and the deadline on which they are 
due. The editor should post this sheet so that the staff members 
will be aware of their assignments. 

News stories are a very important part of the paper. They tell 
what is happening in the school, community, and city. The news 
story should open with the most important facts being stated first 
and the less important- following them. This is done so that the 
lead paragraph lor in some cases two or three paragraphs) could 
stand alone as a complete story if the following paragraphs had to 
be cut. 

The feature story also plays an important part in filling out 
the pages of the school newspaper. There are countless feature 
stories on every school campus just waiting to be written. They are 
often the most difficult types of news to prepare, however, they 
are also the kind most likely to be remembered. 

Original jokes and poems often attract readers to a paper. For 
this reason, the staff should try to secure them for publication in 
every edition of the paper. They may be secured from students who 
attend the scliool or from other sources. 

Obtaining Suitable Pbotograplis 

There are several things to keep in mind when selecting photo- 
graphs for a newspaper. One thing is to make sure that the picture 
tells a story. Good pictures usually tell a story and therefore, they 
are easy to caption. 

Another thing to consider is the composition of the picture. 
Make surp that the persons and objects are arranged attractively 
and try to avoid distracting effects in the background. Usually 
"action pictures" or pictures with some type of motion attract 
attention quickly. 

Planning the Make-Up 

The physical make-up of the paper contributes a great deal to 
its success. In making up the paper attention is given first to the 



Assistant Professor of En^rlish. 

Rewriting and Copyreading 


Functions of the 
School Paper 

Probably tlie primary function 
of the school paper is to serve 
as the eye of the reader: to re- 
flect the activities of the school. 
Three requirements are essential 
in the carrying out of this pur- 
pose : (1 ) the news coverage 
must be adequate, (2) News 
evaluation must be fair and im- 
partial. (3) The news must be 
told interestingly. 

The high school paper is an 
instrument of education. It 
affurds a training ground for 
students interested in newspaper 
work. It encourages creative 
writing on the part of students 
who wisli to do this kind of work. 
It educates the average student 
in the resources of his school 
and in its needs. The school 
paper educates the fathers and 
mothers of the community by 
informing them of the school 
system and its operation. The 
school paper should be exact in 
maintaining a high standard 
of correctness in grammar, 
punctuation, and principles of

Writer Describes Method of Writing 
The Lead Paragraph for a News Story 

By Louise B. Jones 

Of the 5 Ws, one is frequently 
of much more importance than 
the others. This element should 
be placed 'first" hi the lead sen- 
tence: that is to say. it sliould 
be played up" or "featured." The 
following examples show how 
one element has been featured: 

The "Who" Lead. If the "who" 
is a person (place or thing) well 
known, it is usually the feature 
of the lead. The name alone at- 
tracts attention. Unless one of 
the other elements is particu- 
larly outstanding the "big name" 
comes first. 

Example Cited 

"John T. King, president of 
King Furniture Store, was criti- 
cally injured in an automobile 
accident at Fourth Street and 
Flowers Avenue this morning." 

The "What" Lead. Concerning 
a person of less importance, a 
similar lead might appear as 

"A head-on automobile 
collision at Fourth Street and 
Flowers Avenue sent Elmer 
Davis, trucic driver of Southern 
Coal Company, to General Hos- 
pital in critical condition to- 

'Where' Lead 

The "Where" Lead. Sometimes 
t li e "where" is significant 
enough to overshow all other 
Ws. An example: 

"The dangerous intersection of 
Fourth Street and Flowers Ave- 
nue was tlie scene of another 
collision this morning, when 
Elmer Davis, truck driver of 
Southern Coal Company, was 
critically inured in an auto- 
mobile accident there." 

The "When" Lead. Rarely is 

the time of an event the most 
interesting feature. However, 
circumstances may make it 
significant. For instance: 

"Just 15 minutes after police 
had erected a "danger" sign at 
Fourth Street and Flowers Ave- 
nue. Elmer Davis, a truck driver 
of Southern Coal Company, was 
critically injured in an auto- 
mobile accident at the Inter- 

Motive or Cause 

The "Why" Lead. The motive 
or cause of an event frequently 
is the most important feature. 
Failure to discover the "why" 
may lose an interesting lead 

"Haste to get to the bedside 
of his dying mother this morn- 
ing sent Elmer Davis, truck 
driver of Southern Coal Com- 
pany, to General Hospital criti- 
cally injured. His sedan crashed 
into a parked car at Fourth 
Street and Flowers Avenue." 

The "How" Lead, The "How" 
also is a potential leading fea- 
ture which is sometimes over- 
looked by beginning reporters. 

"Thrown through the wind- 
sliield when his sedan crashed 
into a parked automobile. Elmer 
Davis, truck driver of Southern 
Coal Conipany. was critically in- 
jured this morning at Fourth 
Street and Flowers Avenue." 

These examples play up (by 
placing first* the various fea- 
tures which an automobile ac- 
cident might reveal. Rarely 
would more than one of the ele- 
ments be wortli featuring in a 
story of a single accident. The 
reporter's choice is usually there- 
fore, determined by the material 
itself. One feature usually "cries

from Savannah State College in 
1949, graduating as valedictorian

in mathematics several summers 
at New York University. 

Among the positions held by 
Mr. Jackson are. assistant princi- 
pal William James High School, 
Statesboro. Ga.; adviser to stu- 
dent newspaper and yearbook. 
William James High School: 
coach of football, basketball, 
track and baseball. William 
James High School; president of 
alumni association. Statesboro. 
Ga. He is a veteran of World 
War II and a veteran of six 
years, post-World War II. 

Currently. Mr, Jackson is an

Find Errors 

The proofreader, working in 
the mechanical department, may 
call himself a print .shop em- 
ployee. He works on proofs of 
type which has been processed. 

His objective i.s to see that the 
type as represented by the galley 
or page proofs in hLs hands con- 
torma to the copy from which It 

was set. He handles the copy but 
only as a checking source and 
without authority to alter it in 
any way. although he will ques- 
tion erroneous material. The 
proofreader uses a set of symbols 
of his own. marking them not on 
the copy, but on the proofs. 

His symbols, in some instances, 
resemble those of the copy- 
reader, but there are more of 
them and they are used in a 
different way. 

out" its importance and demands 
first place in the lead. 
Avoid Crowding 

the simple one-incident story. 
two or more W's seem equally 
interesting, the reporter must 
choose arbitrarily between theni. 
Awkward leads usually result 
from the attempt to feature 
more than one W. 

Speeding to the bedside of his 
dying mother. Elmer Davis, 
Southern Coal Company em- 
ployee, was thrown through the 
windshield and critically injured 
when his sedan crashed into a 

parked automobile at the 
dangerous intersection of Fourth 
Street and Flowers Avenue just 
15 minutes after police had 
erected a danger sign. 

Even if a simpler combination 
were more successful, it would 
not really play up (in the sense 
of placing first) more than the 
one W. In the simple news story 
it is usually better to play up 
only one W in the lead sentence. 
Other W's can then be amply ex- 
panded later in the lead para- 
graph or be given ample 
emphasis in the body of the

College News 

By James C. Matthews 
The college newspaper plays 
a nimportant role in college life. 
You may not know it, but col- 
leges are represented to the out- 
side world by student publica- 
tions. The College newspaper 
does not only represent the col- 
lege in the outside world, but it 
also serves as an outlet for in- 
forming students of the activities 
that have taken place on and off 
campus which concern them. 

The college newspaper -is an 
instrument of mass communica- 
tio non campus. It is a publica- 
tion by which the students may 
speak or voice their conceptions 
through editorials, feature 
stores, poems, etc. This a Iso 
raises the question of freedom 
of the student publication versus 
control. The college newspaper 
represents the students and 
gives them a chance to debate 
and test experimental thoughts, 
emotions, and beliefs. A free 
college newspaper gives self- 
expression of the outstanding 
moments on campus. It has 
many motives of expression and 
is as multiform as human 

The college newspaper does not 
only have a local campus value, 
but a professional value also. 
For many colleges are judged by 
their student publications. So 
from these conceptions, it can be 
concluded that a college news- 
paper holds the major spotlight 
of student expression in college

rii<^ Journalist's (^reed 

By Walter Williams 

I believe in the profession of journalism. 

1 believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all con- 
nected with it are. to the full measure of their responsibility, 
trustees for the public; that acceptance of lesser service than the 
public service is betrayal of this trust. 

I believe that clear thinking and clear statement, accuracy and 
fairness, are fundamental to good journalism, 

I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in 
his heart to be true. 

I believe that suppresison of the news, for any consideration 
other than the welfare of society, is indefensible, 

I believe that no one should write as a journalist what he 

would not say as a gentleman: that bribery by one's own pocket- 
book is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of 
another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by plead- 
ing another's instructions or another's dividends. 

I believe that advertising, news and editorial columns should 

alike serve the best interests of readers: that a single standard of 
helpful truth and cleanness should prevail for all; that the supreme 
test of good journalism is the measure of its public service. 

I believe that the journalism which succeeds best — and best 
deserves success — fears God and honors man; is stoutly independ- 
ent, unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power, constructive, 

tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful 
of its readers but always unafraid; is quickly indignant at injustice; 
is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or the clamor of the mob; 
seeks to give every man a chance, and. as far as law and honest 
wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so. an 
equal chance ; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting 
international good will and cementing world-comradeship; is a 
journalism of humanity, of and for today's world. 

Announce Aims 
or Tifier's Koar 

The Tiger's Roar aims are: to 
express student voice and 
opinion, print news of our 
campus life and world affairs, 
compete and excel among other 
college publications, announce 
important information to the 
Savannah State College family. 

Publishing a student news- 
paper is a job that requires the 
cooperation of all student organ- 
izations on the campus. News is 
made every minute of the day. 
It is the job of the journalist 
or reporter of the organization 
to capture this news and recreate 
it on paper. Deadlines are very 
important and should be kept. 

Literary Section 

Though our major emphasis 
is journalistic, we acknowledge 
our obligation to provide an out- 
let for those who desire to ex- 
press their creative impulses and 
thoughts, through the writing 
of essays, short stories, poetry, 
and fiction. 

Our literary section includes 
such writings as stated in the 
above paragraph.

JAclanta. Ga. — Savannah State 
\TOn a bitterly-contested NAIA 
District 6-A Playoff Saturday 
night in defeating Benedict Col- 
lege. 94-37 in the Morehouse 
College Physical Education and 
Health Building. 

It was the second straight 
triumph for the Tigers, who won 
the inaugural playoff defeating 
Morris Brown College, 76-71. 

The second triumph of the 
Tigers was a majestic one. Sa- 
vannah State held command of 
the game from start and sur- 
rendered the lead to the SEAC 
tournament champions. 

Savannah State and Benedict 
were deadlocked at 41-41 at lialf- 
time but the Oceansiders re- 
fused to give ground and pulled 
ahead to stay. 

Redell Walton, the gilt edge 
SEAC pointmaker, took scoring 
honors with 38 points. His closest 
challenger was Benedict's 
Timothy Shine who bucked 23. 

Redell Walton, Ira Jackson, 
Stephen Kelly, Walter Simon 
and Walter Simpson were named 
on the AU-NAIA District 6-A 
playoff team. 

Morris Brown perfected a 
freeze to chew up the biggest 
portion of the final three 
minutes of the fourth quarter 
of the NAIA consolation game, 
and went on to overcome Clark 
College, 71 to 65. 

Clark pressed the Wolverines - 
for command of the game, but 
failed to come up with the lead, 
the Panther offensive did knot 
the count at 51 all with 10 
minutes left to play, but Irvin 
Ross pushed in 23 markers to 
quickly send the M.B.C. five out

lead that the Clarkites could not

for the losing Panthers with 19 
points. Henry (Moon) Clark 
amassed 16 points in a losing

Reading in the column "Extra 
Points" in Wednesday. March 
8th edition, I share the disap- 
pointment with Mr. Ellis con- 
cerning the unranked Tigers, 
referring, of course, to the Sa- 
vannah State College basketball 
team. However, I am -still 
wondering whether the press 
gave this great team the cover- 
age that they really deserve. 

Of course, you might say that 
they were given "adequate" press 
coverage, but in comparison with 
the "exploded" coverage given to 
the local white high school sport 
programs, I am convinced that 
your paper is as much to blame 
as anybody else for a team of 
this caliber to be unranked 
among small college teams. Do 
you remember the little Savan- 
nah girl who was a member of 
the Gold Medal U. S. Relay Team 
in the Olympics? The chances 
are, you will have to do some 
"research" just to learn her

Leading Fire Cause 

This is Spring Clean-Up Time, 
and many families are busily en- 
gaged in sprucing up their 

Thowing out accumulations of 
old newspapers and trash is a 
vital part of the Clean-Up job, 
because It reduces fire hazards. 

The National Board of Fire 
Underwriters suggests that fire 
safety be made a year-round job. 

Around one-fourth of all fires 
are caused by matches and 
smoking, the National Board 
said. Another 20.4 per cent are 
due to misuse of electrical equip- 

Three-fourths of all fires are 
the result of carelessness and 
forgetfulness. They could have 
been prevented.

By William Hagins 

Is the U. S. Behind Russia in Worhl Leadership? 

For a long period of time people of the Western world have been 
trying to calculate our resources, and resources of our infrequent 
enemies. This calculation is usually in terms of atomic power, mili- 
tary leadership and manpower. 

It has been said that the United States is behind Russia and 
her allies In the struggle for leadership control. In America we have 
a system that is called "freedom," and this is a system that Russia 
cannot touch. Freedom means to most Americans, the act of 
governing one's self. That is the prime idea of a free nation. We 
are free in America to criticize, to deduct, experiment, and to think 
creatively as well as express natural heritage. "Freedom of Speech." 

The system of communism does not tolerate the high ideals 
and principles of the people of the Western world. Is it because 
Communists are prisoners of their own system, because they cannot 
adjust their complexities and behaviors to realism, for they recog- 
nize those realities that fit into their life processes. 

Ours is a different sort of philosophy; it is different because we 
are free and we can criticize. Our historians are able and free to 
follow the truths, and our leaders can follow the wills of the people 
and the will of God. 

Here in America, we are trying to convey our true rights which 
our forefathers have fought so nobly and laboriously for. In this 
strive, the minority must be given the chance to show to the world 
that the fate of their lives rest upon the same Omnipotent God 
that they serve. 

Freedom Must Overpower Discrimination in America 

Americans must find a true democracy and not a semi- 
democracy. A true democracy, the government, rest in the hands 
of everyone and not in a ruling class. 

This is the necessity of freedom, if freedom cannot prevail 
within these United States, Russia and her allies, man will never 
discover the peace of mind that is inevitably his dream. Seeing

rest upon her to determine the fate of her immediate surroundings 
and all that she tries to influence. Therefore such practices as 
discrimination as such must be ceased in America. 

SCAT Tests Administered 

New abiUty tests to aid in prediction of success and guidance 
of college upperclassmen were given to randomly selected seniors 
at Savannah State College this week in a standardization program 
preliminary to publication of the tests. 

Some 1,600 seniors in 68 colleges throughout the country par- 
ticipated in the program designed to determine typical scores for 
the upper level of the School and College Ability Tests (SCAT*. The 
series now includes ability tests suitable for use only through the 
college sophomore year. 

Test scores obtained from the sampling of college seniors will 
be used to construct comparison guides and other materials which 
will be published with the new level tests to permit proper interpre- 
tation of test scores. Similar samplings of college Juniors will be 
made in the fall of 1961. 

The new upper level tests are designed to provide information 
helpful in predicting academic performance In the college junior 
and senior years, in determining qualifications of junior college 
students applying for admission to four-year colleges, and in guiding 
students toward post-college goals. 

The tests, which are scheduled for publication in approximately 
two years, follow the same content pattern as the present five levels, 
measuring verbal and quantitative skills. 

Miss L. Davis administers the new tests. Savannah State Col- 
lege participated in a similar program for the college freshman and 
sophomore level of the test series in 1956 and 1958.

Tigers Eyed Pot- of- Gold In Kansas City 

By Theodore Clark 
"With the road practically 
paved and the rocks under the 
sand," the SSC Tigers eyed a 
sparkling pot of gold when they 
left Savannah Saturday after- 
noon for Kansas City, Mo., to 
compete for National Champion- 
ship honors in the 1961 NAIA 
tournament, March 13 through 

Faced with the tough job of 
beating two of the SIAC's best 
teams in the District 6A playoffs 
in Atlanta last weekend ( the 
Tiger's did just that). After 
watching the talented Benedict 
Tigers virtually dump the Clark 
College Panthers 99-86 in the 
opening game of the playoffs, 
the Tigers edged a towering 
Morris Brown squad 85-83 in the 
second game of the opening 
night, placing them against the 
first game winners, the tall and 
talented Benedict team. Again 
SSC emerged as victors qualify- 
ing them to compete for Na- 
tional honors in the NAIA 

A year ago when the Tigers 
arrived in Atlanta for the play- 
offs, the word around the sports 
circuit was that the Tigers were 
just there to watch the taller 
teams play. This year like last 
year they proved basketball be- 
longs to the team with the 
superior shooting prowess and 
ball handling skill, as they 
dumped Morris Brown 76-70 in 
the finals, after running through 
Florida A & M 95-89 in the semi-

Easter vacation time draweth nigh. Time to turn your thoughts 
away from differential calculus or Chaucer and concentrate on 
dazzling the hometown belles with your fashion acumen. 

Here's a cram course on the fabrics, colors and stylings to keep in 
mind when you assemble a Spring outfit. 

THE BIG THREE choices for university 
men this season: 

1. Muted glen plaids in worsteds or 

2. Soft flannels or unfinished worsteds 

3. Hairline stripes 

In all of these, and particularly in the 
plaids, the outstanding color is olive. Ex- 
pect to see plenty of the soft greenish cast 
that cupped top fashion honors last year 
and also new variations on the olive theme 
. . . olives with golden, bluish or blackish 
casts. Runner up color is a basic medium 
grey. You might also consider black with 
half-inch white chalk stripes (very new in 
tropical worsted) or check into the new 

THE FAVORED SILHOUETTE continues to be our native three- 
button Natural Shoulder or a version thereof. This styling 
achieves its look of easy simplicity through careful attention to 
many small details. Here's what to look for : a soft natural shoul- 
der. str:iight hanging jacket lines, center vent and flap pockets. 
Single row stitching with a raised welt accents collar, lapels, 
sleeve and back seams and pockets, 

Trousers are plain, pleatless and tapered. 

ADDENDA ON FIT. Hesurecatt 
jackets are short enough to allow at 
least a half-inch of shirt cuff to 
show. Ditto on the jacket collar to 
give it proper slope. Trousers should 
be long enough to just break over the 

SPEAKING OF SHIRTS . . . button- 

down collar models in white or pale 
pastels are almost de rigueur with 
a traditional suit. Select neckwear in 
either a small figured print or regi- 
mental repp stripes to coordinate 
with suit and shirt. In shoes this sea- 
son, look for the plainer models... 
slip-ons in dark brown or plain tip 
ties in brown or one of the burnished 

new outfit is a soft felt hat. 
Tapered brim and narrow 
crown are the points to look 
for. Again, the best color is 
olive, especially olive accented 
by a black band. 

NEXT MONTH, wen delve into 
the latest in slacks, shorts, 
sport shirts, knitwear and 
other related fashions for your 
sportin' life. Have a good holi-

Spring Is Here 

Spring showers will bring a 
flowering of the newly favored 
patterns. With the International 
Silhouette and the American In- 
fluences, the Italian Continental 
is a creation of a more catholic 
model. The Navarre Grey suit is 
an unusual shadow-type pattern 
compounded of olive, gold and 
blue, with bronze overcast. It 
has three buttons, moderately 
built-up shoulders, slightly wider 
peak lapels, shaped waist, 
rounded front, and slanted flap- 
less pockets. Trousers may be 
cuffless or double pleated. 

This season is still heir to the 
strong sway of plaids and checks, 
and to the ever-mounting in- 
fluence of the British silhouette. 
Vineyard colors and the natural 
fruition of last fall's featured 
Grape Tones, share spring's im- 
portant color spectrum with 
currently popular golds and 
olives. The American version of 
the British look, of the light- 
weight wool jacket checked in 
gold, white, black, or mellow 
brown is referred to as the 
British silhouette. 

Another lightweight wool 
jacket selected the full-bodied 
Vineyard shade called "British 
Claret"; the vivid back-and- 
Claret plaid is finely overplaided 
in olive or gray. The gentlemanly 
or colligate model has three 
buttons, some waist suppression, 
horizontal flap pockets and 
center vent. "Altos Blue'" broad- 
cloth shirt and Claret tie are ex- 
cellent co-ordinates. 

The man who prefers the 
different in rainwear, but 
eschews pattern, will look for 
ultra-light tones and fresh styl- 
ing features in his spring choice. 
On campus, it will be the near- 
white beige "shorty," in cotton 
poplin, with diagonal slash 
pockets, stitched yoke, button 
tabs on sleeves, and the ac- 
cordion pleated side vents, which 
may be worn open or buttoned.

On a Penny 

(ACP)— A 26-year-old Peru- 
vian traveling around the world 
"on a penny" in an effort to fur- 
t h e r international friendship 
emphasized greater understand- 
ing between North and South 
America in a stop at the Univer- 
sity of Redlands, Redlands, Calif. 

In an interview with the RED- 
Sanchez, acting project chief of 
the Pan Americanist Organiza- 
tion of Youths, urged people in 
the United States not to talk 
about North and South America 
but about the "Americas." and 
to "recognize that the countries 
of South America are not a small 
and forgotten world but have 
great accomplishments and a 
heritage to their credit."

Howard Bobannon — Senior — Newnan, Ga.

Zelmar Stevenson — Junior — Florence. S. C. "I think the second 
trip was just marvelous, and outstanding for the school. With more 
loyal support there might be a time when the team will come home 
from Kansas City with the championship trophy." 

Albert King — Senior — Waynesboro. Ga. "The team appeared to 
be eager to go to Kansas City, Indications from the rest of the 
student body showed that they were pleased to see the team go 
again, and supported them 100 per cent." 

Juanita Moon — Senior — Savannah, Ga. "It was as exciting for 
the students as it was for the team, The quality of performance 
that the team has given was indicative of tlie expectations of the 
students of the team to make the trip. I'm very proud of them," 
An Unidentified Basketball Player. "Actually we (the team) 
went back to Kansas City again because we like winning. The school 
spirit here is not great enough to inspire us and other distracting 
things such as the Scholarship Committee and their policies could 
really take away our determination. Tliese factors, however, were 
not great enough to keep us down," 

Mary HuHis — Sophomore — Moultrie, Ga. "I feel that the basket- 
ball team had a great season and the official record proves it. 
Although Redlands defeated us in Kansas City I know we have one 
of the best teams in the country."

Three National Fraternities Criticized 
Because of Discrimination

(UPS)— Three national social 
fraternities — Alpha Tau Omega, 
Phi Delta Theta, and Sigma Chi 
— were under fire this week be- 
cause of alleged dicriminatory 
pledging practices. 

Alpha Tau Omega's High 
Council descended upon its Stan- 
ford University chapter to con- 
duct closed hearings before 
deciding whether the national 
will expel the chapter for pledg- 
ing four Jewish students. The 
Stanford chapter has voted 
unanimously to keep its Jewish 
members, regardless of the con- 

ATO National President Gerald 
Johnson answered the charges 
of discrimination by explaining: 
"We don't exclude Jews— if they 

embrace the Christian faith, 
ATO is centered in Jesus Christ, 
its ritual is based on the New 
Testament, and any rushee or 
pledge believing in a non- 
Christian religion would find the 
ritual and some of ATO's Chris- 
tian practices offensive." 

Phi Delta Theta came in for 
stiff criticism from Lake Forest 
College in Illinois when the Phi 
Delta national refused member- 
ship to a Jewish student after 
the local chapter had asked him 
to join. 

Charging Sigma Chi with be- 
ing the only remaining fraternity 
on the Cornell University campus 
with an "overt discriminatory 
clause" four Cornell students

By James J. DeVoo 

Maii-Iiilo-Space Shows Groal Achievpiiiciil 

The "greatest scientific achievement in the history of man," 
was one of the statements made after the historic flight of man- 
into-space. Major Yuri Gagarin, a Russian, 27-year-old. and father 
of two children, orbited the earth in a five-ton space ship on a 
flight that took one hour and 48 minutes: with the withering away 
of approximately 108 minutes on that never to be forgotten day, 
Russia, with her great booster, pulled away and won the man-in- 
space race. 

A Steppe<l-Ui> Program Is NihmIimI 

What does this mean to the average American? Is it an in- 
dication that man's quest for knowledge of the unknown heavens 
will eventually be realized, and that this knowledge will be used 
to further his superficial aim of world conquest? 

Personally, it has grave implications for the American educa- 
tional system and scientific research. Our education in science will 
have to be revamped! A stepped-up program in recruiting young 
men and women to study the sciences will have to be undertaken! 
No longer can America afford to ignore the scientific talent of her 
black citizens, when she needs to utilize all of her available man- 
power resources in order to win the race against Communist tyranny 
and conspiracy. 

It is understandable that in the next few days great stress will 
be put on the orbiting of an American-manned satellite, and if 
the result is anything but successful, it behooves us to institute a 
better science program in our schools. And it is our responsibility to 
provide a favorable climate in order for our scientists to engage in 
research and stop harrassing great scientists like Dr. Lynus Pauling 
and Robert Oppenheimer. 

Aiiiericaiis Can Meet llie Challenge 

The American people have the ingenuity and the know-how to 
meet the challenges of the space age and the Russian achievement. 
Our great democracy has passed through great crises before, and 
showed that she can overcome them. The mobilization of ALL of 
America's human resources in a program which will aid in tech- 
nological progress will be of enormous help. Vice President Lyndon 
B. Johnson's efforts as chairman of President Kennedy's Committee 
on Equal Employment Opportunity are concrete steps in the right 
direction. Closing the gaps in our science educational program with 
more federal assistance will ensure adequately trained scientists 
for the future. Only through a concerted effort by all Ainericans 
will we meet the challenge of the Russians. 

My Kind of Democracy 

By William Hagin 

Trouble aud Chaos in World Today 

The majority of the people of the Western World are now 
beginning to believe in the old proverb that says, "The world is a 
stage and we, the people, are its leading players." They are be- 
girming to believe this because of the trouble and chaos that is 
developing iu this world today. Cuba, who once was our close ally 
has now broken off all ties with the U, S. France, one of the great 
we.stern powers, i5 having trouble in Algeria. The acknowledged 
leader of the Western World, the United States is faced with an 
internal problem of racial strife. 

It would seem that every time any country finds itself in diffi- 
culty they call upon the United States for assistance. 

Segregation and Diserimination Deadly Forces 

My question is, "How can the U. S. lead other countries out of 
darkness when at home an enemy destroys her children with a 
deadly force called segregation accompanied with the fall out dust 
called discrimination?" 

We need help in such troubled areas in the U. S. as Mississippi. 
Arkansa.s. Louisiana, Georgia, South Carohna and some of the other 
die-hard Southern states. When this has been realized the Negro 
must, and will be given a chance to participate fully in a democracy 
through equal opportunities in education, employment, housing and 
the ballot. Then he could prove to the world that the mighty U. S. 
is capable of shouldering the many responsibilities of a true 

When Will America Be Ready? 

Then America will be ready to lead the occidental nations for 
she would then be practicing what she advocates. 

Countries like France. Great Britain and many other western 
countries must lead themselves, to promote a kind of government 
that is best for the people, and unite themselves into a brotherhood 
of men, for the common good of man. 

Then the world will really be. not a stage, but a place where 
prosperity reside within.

The entire staff of the Tiger's Roar extends congratulations 
to the newly elected student body leaders. We know that a college 
is as powerful as its student body leaders. Work diligently and SSC 
will be a better school in the future. 

No<mI Voliii^ Machines 

After closely evaluating the present system 
of voting on campus I sincerely believe that 
voting machines would do a much better job. 
The system of merely throwing a ballot in a 
cardboard box, is definitely not representative 
of a college election. We hope there will be some 
changes along these lines in the future- 
Clean Election 
It was good to see that there was not any mud throwing in 
this election. This proves that a campus politician can carry out 
a campaign effectively without dealing in personal malign. Wonder 
what would happen if a SSC student ran for the Governor of the 
State in 1975, With the type vote getting machines that were used 
here, the outcome of that election would be hard to predict. 

S|iriii^ Probation 

Spring probation was in her unique colorful way as the various 
Greeks presented candidates for their organizations to the student 
body. The November probation will be one of the largest ever seen 
on campus, it was reported by the Pan-Hellenic Council. 

Reserve Fund Proposed 

Much concern and attention has been given recently to the 
financial status of the baseball, track and the college newspaper. 
Reports were made that the funds for those activities were ex- 
hausted for the fiscal year last month. As Editor of the Student's 
Voice (campus newspaper) 1 recommend that in the future ad- 
ditional funds from either the students or other sources should be 
made available in a reserve fund in order to cover these needed 
activities on our college campus. Of course some might say. "We 
don't need a baseball or track team." The fact of the matter is 
how can other colleges, some even snialler than ours, produce a 
well rounded program of extra class activities? A college cannot 
sell its program effectively by just sending out bulletins and the 
other devices used to get students. The average high school student 
looks at a college through a crystal glass. He not only studies the 
academic side of the college but also the athletic and the general 
tone of the student body through activities such as the student 
newspaper, baseball, track, basketball and football teams. If he sees 
a fairly good team or newspaper he is immediately interested in 
the college. 

Therefore, it is my contention that student activities on our 
campus are indeed vital to the student morale on campus, and all 
efforts should be made to keep them.

Christianity: A Wholesome Sign 

By Lorenzo P. McNeal 

Traditionally, it is the saintly person who is most conscious 
of sin. Individuals whose spiritual lives are dull and insensitive 
may not recognize any needs. Those who have achieved great depth 
of character are likely to be most eloquent in pointing out their 
own faults and failures. 

So it is a major point of strength that Christianity makes us 
look at our own weaknesses. Individuals and nations are encouraged, 
even challenged to take stock. Only such analysis results in recog- 
nition of shortcomings. 

This means that Christianity is strong in spite of the weakness 
of its followers. Though there are no completely dedicated nations 
and few individuals who approach the Christian ideal, the goal is 
always before us, It lifts men and nations by challenging to higher 
achievement, Each height that is scaled enables a new and higher 
peak to come Into view. 

Christian nations are far from perfect, but they appear to be 
so much better than those which have not been touched by God's 
message. Conscious of their sins, Christian nations can still have 
a message for the rest of the world. 

Jesus brought a message so different that many refused to 
accept it. He taught us all men are equal in his sight. If privilege 
is to be gained, it must be won by personal conduct and It takes

Poll Revels Students Would 
Patronize Integrated Theaters 

(UPS)— The results of a can- 
vassing of the student body of 
the University of North Carolina 
during Brotherhood Week last 
month has revealed that over 
80% of the students questioned 
(1879) at the University would 
continue to patronize local 
theaters if they were open to 
persons of all races. 

The poll, conducted by a volun- 
teer student group, was intended 
to find out if claims of theater 
owners that their business would 
fall off if they were to integrate 
were valid. 

Students in each living unit 
were given a questionnaire, the 
completion of which was 

Of the 1879 returned form. 803 
(42.7%) indicated the No. 1 
choice requesting the opening of 
the theaters to all, 28.18% 
checked the No. 2 alternative 
indicating that they would con- 
tinue patronizing the theaters, 
16% checked the No. 3 choice, 
indicating opposition to the 
policy but stating that they 
would continue patronage. 

The paper also cites, as in- 
dication that theater seats are 
"growing cold under the present 
segregated arrangement" the 
recent practice of offering free 
showings to fraternity and 
sorority groups during prime 
evening hours at the Carolina

Defining "spoitsweai '* is a somewhat sticky wicket in a column 
for university men. Apparel which is considered appropriate onli/ 
for leisure wear on one campus, may be perfectly suitable for the 
classroom or even for casual dates on another. 

Therefore, I'll not attempt to dictate when the following fashions 
should be worn . . . that's up to each man on each campus to decide 
for himself. These are the newsmakers in the general sportswear 
field for the warm seasons ahead: 

YOU NEVER HAD IT SO LIGHT i„ jackets -The 

new crop of wash-and-wear jackets in combina- 
tions of Dacron and cotton are almost shirting 
weight, and unlined in the bargain. Two positive 
trends are notable: giant plaid.t for the pace-set- 
ters; subtle colorings in the native craft fabrics 
(batik, madras. Kalamkaril for the conserva- 
tives. Outstanding color-mates in the plaids will 
be either olive and blue or olive and grey. These 
look best with solid color lightweight trousers in 
deep olive or grey. Complete the outfit with a 
classic, button-down collar shirt in white or the 
new "Jute" color. ..a light natural tan, especi- 
ally effective with olive. 


with Yankee know-how, are currently in great 
favor. Choose a natural-shoulder, single-breasted 
version with metal buttons in navy or one of the 
newer hues. . .olive, gold or light grey. The 
double-breasted blazers are smartest in navy, ac- 
cented with white pearl buttons. 

IHt KM lb AKL II for casual shirts in cotton, Banlon or blends. 

These, in the conventional, solid-color, short-sleeved pullover style 
will be offered in light tan, gold or olive. For kicks, pick one in 
bright red. Note. too. the great variety with contrasting border 
stripes at collar and sleeve edge, and another group with knit 
collar.-^ ami button plackets half-way do"'n the front. 

CHECK THE NEW SLACKS...!,, r;,ccfo. 

stripes and plaids. The fabrics are light- 
weight and washable. Basic tan chinos 
continue to be popular, but let yourself go 
and add at least one pair of patterned 
slacks to your Summer wardrobe this 

SWEATER COLLECTORS will unnt to in- 

vestigate the si'un-bulkies in pullover or 
six-button cardigan style. These look 
warmer than they are because the knits 
are very porous and many are of cotton or 
blends, as well as very lightweight wools. 
White is still the number one choice for 
warm weather, but tan, gold and olive are 
also good. 

Advance tip: on my recent fashion-scout- 
ing trip through Europe and the Scandi- 
navian countries 1 saw patterned sweaters 
everywhere, some in such wild color com- 
binations as purple, orange and white. 

STANDOUT SHOES in the sportswear category are the hi-risers 

...either slip-on or laced desert style. 
Choose yours in olive or natural tan in 
brushed leather. 

WHAT'S AHEAD: in the next column. 
we'll clear up some of the confusion about 
correct formalwear and accessories, and 
report on the new trends in beachwear. So 
long, for now. 

Space Food 

Travelers to outer space may 
have to grow their own food 
en route, reports the May Read- 
er's Digest. It is estimated that 
a space traveler will need about 
seven pounds of food and water 
per day. Since this need would 
make long trips impractical. 
scientists are studying the possi- 
bility of using sunlight to raise 
nutritious, fast-growing algae 
during flight. 

Vanishing Americans 

Each year an estimated one 
million Americans vanish — most 
of them deliberately. Lt. John J. 
Cronin. former chief of New 
York's Missing Persons Bureau 
says in the May Reader's Digest 
that the chief reason for such 
disappearances is "to escape a 
problem which looks overpower- 
ing." Spring and fall are the 
peak seasons for vanishing. More 
men vanish than women, and 
married women disappear more 
frequently than single ones. 

Melius Fashions 

By Eddie Bryant 


This year even more than last, 
the vernal style scene promises 
to be a harmonious blend of 
tradition and innovation that 
should provide more ample out- 
lets for both conservative and 
liberal tastes. 

Things to Come 

The shape of things to come 
will change a bit, but only the 
perceptive eye will notice. 
Happily, the natural shoulder 
hasn't been touched, but the new 
jackets will be longer by a frac- 
tion than heretofore, and their 
lapels will be slightly wider. 
Waist suppression, gentle but 
noticeable, will be back, and you 
can expect to find more patch 
flap pockets on solid-color coats. 
Slacks will retain their slim and 
clean-lined silhouette, but with 
a decline in elasticized waist- 
bands. Belt loops will be reap- 
pearing, and with them, a 
sumptuous variety of new belts 
n both leathers and fabrics. But 
the biggest news is the trium- 
phant revival of stripes: candy 
stripes, boater stripes, awning 
stripes, ice cream parlor stripes. 
On blazers, sweaters, swim 
trunks walking shorts, belts. 
dress and sport shirts, they 
promise to infuse the style sea- 
son with an atmosphere of 
carnival gaiety that has not been 
enjoyed since the stripe-candy 

The dress shirt picture reveals 
the same balance between tra- 
ditionalism and experimenta- 
tion. The tidy tab collar in both 
snap-fastener and collar button 
styles, still will be a handsome 
complement to your spring and 
summer wardrobe of suits and 
ties, and much dressier than the 
buttondown. But watch for the 
introduction of a short, modified 
spread collar as a London shirt 
feature. The most noteworthy 
news item is the proliferation of 
the short-sleeve, tapered body 
dress shirt in a multitude of new 
patterns, colors and collar styles. 

Where Is Your 

By Katie Williams '59 
■'Romance, like a ghost, eludes 
touching." said the noted Amer- 
ican essayist and editor. T. W. 
Curtis. "It is always where you 
were, not where you are." Al- 
most every well traveled person 
has a favorite spot on the earth 
somewhere; a place he regards 
as supremely romantic. But for- 
tunately, it is not necessary to 
be a world traveler to have a 
favorite romantic place, these 
days, thanks to movies, televis- 
ion and magazines, we can tour 
the world vicariously and search 
for Shangri-la in our living 

Most people agree on the qual- 
ities that make a place romantic. 
First, it must be a place where 
we can do the things we enjoy 
doing. Second, it must possess 
breath-taking beauty. Lastly, the 
places we remember as romantic 
are invariably those we associate 
with memorable people or cir- 
cumstances, One young couple 
who have traveled extensively 
claim the most romantic spot in 
the world is Sea Island. Ga, Rea- 
son? They spent their honey- 
moon there. 

To attempt to name the most 
romantic place in the world 
v/ould seem to be as presump- 
tous as attempting to define or 
beauty. Each person has his own 
reason for finding a place ro- 
mantic — reasons involving set- 
ting, people and circumstances.

Special Feature 


By Verdell LaVerne Lambert 
When it comes to eating, there are only two classes of people: 
those who live to eat and those who eat to live. It is only necessary 
to know what a body eats to determiiie what class he belongs to. 
If an individual eats as though he were fattening himself for the 
market, he would belong to the first class. If he eats barely enough 
to keep an ant alive, he would belong to the latter class. Conse- 
quently, inasmuch as there are only two classes of people — you are 
one of these. 

Fifteen scores and fifty-two years ago our fathers brought forth 
on this continent a new nation— the gluttonists! The entire world 
knew of their greatness— for they were great in width and great 
in appetite. But then, what made them such excessive eaters? 
History tells us that they were motivated by greed — the greed for 
food. They believed strongly in the biblical quotation: "Man can 
not live by bread alone. . . ." And so at meal time, and in between 
meal times, they would eat meats, vegetables, fats, and sweets 

Most gluttonists eat about ten pounds of food each day. And 
it is with joy and delight that they sit down to ravage and devour 
their food. They tear their meat asunder, bite into the bones, and 
swallow the solid foods in large pieces. 

If you were to meet a gluttonist on the street, you would 
recognize him instantly. All of them have the forward look and are 
generally bulky people. 

People who eat to live are often referred to as "skinny bones." 
The "Skinny bones" fast frequently when in the course of 
human events, it becomes necessary for them to eat, they do so 
sparingly. Their lack of interest in food is due mostly to their desire 
to acquire an attractive figure or a slim physique. And so. day 
after day they consume pills to lose their appetites while their 
flesh waste away. 

Their choice of foods would be quite repulsive to the gluttonists. 
Like the vegetarians, they eat lettuce, cabbage, squash, spinach, etc. 

If you were to meet a "skinny bone" on the street, you would 
recognize him instantlly. All of them have the recessive look and 
are generally skinny people 

Gluttonist! Oh gluttonist! The next time you sit down at a 
table to eat, take heed that thy greatness does not overcome thee. 
"Skinny bones!" Oh "skinny bones!" The next time you sit down at 
a table to eat, you would do well to pattern after the gluttonists. 
for they are a great race of people. A word to the wise is sufficient, 
is it not?

Professor Speaks 
Oil '^Success'' 

By Alphonso S. McLean 

"Everyone seeks the secret of 
success," said William H. Bowens. 
Associate Professor of Economics 
at Savannah State College, as he 
addressed more than 1.000 stu- 
dents during the weekly Chapel 
Hour, Thursday, 

"There's no straightforward 
formula for success. For most 
people the word success is the 
rightful place in life one has at- 
tained through hard work," he 
told the assembly. Professor 
Bowens cited occasions in his- 
tory where some of the most suc- 
cessful men in the world con- 
sidered themselves failures be- 
cause things they wanted most 
could not be achieved, "We 
should change our conception 
of success and never let failures 
defeat our individual aspirations 
and intended goals," he said. He 
urged the group to grasp hold 
of individual ideals and develop 

In his conclusion he stated, 
"When we think of success we 
should think of making the most 
of our lives to help others to 
make this world a better place 
in which to live." 

Mr. Bowens, who lectures in 
Economics and Accounting, 
earned the Masters of Business 
Administration Degree in Ac- 
counting from New York Uni- 
versity and has taught at Sa- 
vannah State College for eight

Major League BasehaU 

Great Leveling in Major League Basehall 

In major league baseball. 1961 may eventually become the year 
of the great leveling. The National League has three teams— the 
Phillies, Reds and Cubs that appear to have no chance at the 
pennant — in the American League the present race seems to be 
tight with the Kansas City Athletics, the Boston Red Sox. the 
Detroit Tigers and the two new teams the Los Angels Angels, and 
the Washington Senators fighting early for the championship. This 
year the talent is divided so equally that a New York writer voted in 
a spring training poll that the Minnesota Twins was his choice for 
the pennant Nme other New York writers picked the New York 

Yankees Are Strong 

The Yankees are strong, fast and replete with fearsome bats- 
men. Assuming the new office of Yankee manager is Ralph Houk. 
Houk has his job cut out to prove himself capable of replacing the 
old War Horse Casey Stengel. Age may be a slowing down factor 
to the White Sox but the acquisition of Juan Pizarro and Cal 
McFish could give them that added uplift needed to keep in the 
running. Showing improvement over last season are the Cleveland 

Pirates National League Favorites 

In the National League it is said that this League is more 
balanced than any ever before in the history of the game. The 
Pittsburgh Pirates are the favorites. Also standing a good chance 
are the Milwaukee Braves. Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, 
and the San Francisco Giants to cop the National League Pennant. 

This baseball season will offer fans the thrill and excitement 
of trying to predict a winner for both leagues. 

Spring Probation 
Brightens Campus 

By Norman B Elmore 

As the spring season arrived. 
so did the annual probation and 
initiation period for the Greek 
Letter Organizations h,ere on 
campus. There was a multiplicity 
of hilarity witnessed on campus 
as a result of the singing, duck- 
ing, dancing, marching, and 
funny stunts performed by the 
various probates. At the height 
of the noon hour, the fun seemed 
to reach its zenith. All of the 
groups were assembled in front 
of the Bandstand and each 
probate group tried to out per- 
form all of the other groups in 
order to please their most Honor- 
able Greeks (Big Sisters) and 
the Noble Greeks iBig Brothers). 
Some groups sang identical songs 
and performed crazy stunts thus 
causing the grand performances 
to be more comical than ever. 

The neophytes (new sorors and 
f raters) became members of the 
various sorities and fraternities

Dormitory Gives 
Pa jama Parly 

By Lucile Lamar 

The residents of Camilla 
Hubert Hall sponsored a Pajama 
Party, in the dormitory lobby, 
April nth. 

One might wonder, "Just what 
is a Pajama Party"^ A pajama 
party is merely a gathering of 
young ladies to play games, chat 
and relax. Refreshments are 
served so that the evening will 
be cooled from the hot dis- 
cussions that may occur. These 
discussions vary from politics to 
"how to hook a man." After all 
is said and done, the evening is 
truly one that inspires women to 
appreciate the art of utilizing 
"Leisure Time." 

Staff Ft rsoiiality of the Month 

By Richard Coger 

This column is designed to give the students an oppor- 
tunity lo know a little of the personal background of staff 
members who work tirelessly to better the college. 

This issue of the Tiger's Roar is citing a personality warm and 
pleasant in the name of Mrs. Clayae H. Watson, director of Wright 
Hall Dormitory. 

Mrs. Watson was educated m the public schools of Raleigh, 

North Carolina and attended Shaw University, 

In 1929, Mrs. Watson married the late Mr, 

Junius Watson. She has two daughters, Mrs. C. 

Faskins and Mrs. F, H. Cuthin who is employed 

by the Einstein Medical Center, Philadelphia, 

Pennsylvania, as a medical social worker. 

^9' .^ Mrs. Watson is an ardent sports fan and has 

^m^ J^gt toured both Europe and Australia. In her travel- 

^^^^^^H| ing, she attended the Brussels World Far, 

^^^^■^^^" Brussels, Belgium. 

Mrs. Watson In the fall of 1960, Mrs. Watson became the 

director of Wright Hall Dormitory. Last year, 
she was assistant director of Holmes Hall, dormitory for girls at 
Clark College. Atlanta. Georgia. 

Mrs. Watson's willing attitude to help others beyond the line 
of duty has inspired the men in Wright Hall to take a cleaner ap- 
proach to college life. 

Again the writer of this column is proud to present this dis- 
tinguished personality; a world traveler who has varied added ex- 
periences to the SSC family. 

Where Is Your Shangri-la? 

(Continued from Pa^e 4) 

In the end. each of us must find 
his own Shangri-la. 

This is exactly what more and 
more Americans are doing each 
year. The search for romantic 
places is taking Americans all 
around the world and making us 
the most travel conscious people 
in history. 

Somewhere, for everyone, there 
is a place where the grass is al- 
ways green, the house never de- 
preciates and love flourishes in 
the moonlight. But even if you 
never get out of your armchair, 
it will do your dormant corpus- 
cles good to pick your paradise.

Six Sioux chiefs, visiting New 
York City and waiting for a

were asked by the hostess. "Have 
you a reservation?" "Yep," said 
one. "In South Dakota."

Faculty Members Slated 
For Summer Study 

1961 Tiger 

Yearbook Is Dedicated i/ 
To Mrs. W. K. Payne 

During a special program on 
Tuesday, May 16, the first copy 
of the Savannah State College 
Yearbook. The 1961 Tiger, was 
presented to Mrs. Mattie B. 
Payne, to whom the book was 
dedicated. Mrs. Payne is the wife 
of Dr. William K, Payne, presi- 
dent of Savannah State College, 

Mrs. Payne is perhaps best 
known as "the wife of the presi- 
dent of Savannah State College," 
But she has done some achieving 
on her own. in that she has suc- 
cessfully pursued two Bachelors 
and a M.A. degree. She has 
reared a son and. a daughter, 
both Doctors of Medicine, and is 
presently the grandmother of 
two fine boys. She is an astute 
counselor at the Alfred E. Beach 
High School of Savannah, and 
is very active in church and com- 
munity affairs. 

In making the presentation, 
William Golden, editor of The 
Tiger, stated, "In recognition of 
our 'First Lady,' for her out- 
standing achievements and the 
fine example she is setting for 
'finer womanhood,' we humbly 

dedicate The 1961 Tiger." 

An excerpt from the thirty- 
first chapter of Proverbs was 
used in the dedicatory remarks 
to convey the feelings of the 
Tiger staff and the entire college 
family, upon selecting Mrs, 
Payne for this honor. 

According to information re- 
leased by Dr. William K. Payne, 
several faculty members will 
study at several of the nation's 
top universities this summer. 

The President feels that the 
faculty's desire and willingness 
to continue study will enhance 
both the faculty members and 
the institution.

^y^y Verdelle Lambert 

"Bonjour mesdames, mademoi-

in this romance language that 
Dorothea Towles, accomplished

ence at the 16th annual Charm 
Week Assembly program at Sa-

tinued, "has something about 
him that is nice."

importance of having a pleasing 
personality and of being able to 
get along with others. <ll The 
ability to make others feel at 
ease, i2) optimism. (3i a pleas- 
ing voice. i4) gracefulness, (5) 
and a sense of humor, were cited 
as the five important facets of 
a pleasing personality. 

Speaking of goals. Miss Towles 
advised that they be set as high 
as possible, and that although 
there may be detours, one should 
never lose sight of his goals.

knowledge introductions.

President Theodore Roosevelt once said "We here in America, 
hold in our hands the hope of the world, the fate of the coming 
years; and shame and disgrace will be ours if in our eyes the light 
of high resolve is dimmed, if we trail in the dust the golden hopes 
of men!!" Yes, we here in America hold the fate of the entire 
world, and it up to us to maintain this position for the hope of 
the Western world. We cannot afford to be overcome by Russia 
and her satellite countries, if so the world would be governed by 
a dictator instead of the people. 

Americans must be urged to wake up and begin to realize what 
is before them. They must show the world that the democratic 
form of government is the human way of life. A government in 
the hands of the people and not in a ruling class or person cannot 
promote. Point out to them the importance of free education, 
freedom of worship, freedom of speech, freedom of the right to live 
in the pursuit of happiness. 

America can then undoubtedly show to the people behind the 
Iron Curtain that the United States has men capable of leading 
them out ot darkness of communism and into the light of a true 

After this factor has been proven to the world, the high ideas 
and morals that America stands for will give the depressed coun- 
tries in the world a feeling of confidence in regard to world peace. 

Need a Suininer Job? Make Your Own! 

"Cash for trash, mice for a 
price, and bucks for books will 
enable teen-agers with imagina- 
tion, initiative, and ingenuity to 
make money this summer," de- 
clares Russell J. Fornwalt, who 
has counseled more than 7,000 
boys and girls on employment 
problems. "If you cannot find a 
job this summer, then, by all 
means, make your own." advises 
Mr, Fornwalt. 

In order to assist teen-agers 
and college students everywhere, 
Mr. Fornwalt has dug deep 
down in his files and compiled 
a helpful and unique new book- 
let, "99 WAYS FOR TEEN- 

It is packed with all kinds of 
practical and profitable ideas 
which have been tested money 
makers for boys and girls in 
many parts of the country. The 
booklet also tells teen-agers how 
to set up a profitable business of 

their own and lists 10 ways for 
getting customers and making 
sales. The 24 page booklet has 
been published by THE AD- 
INSTITUTE, an occupational in- 
formation service for the field 
of education since 1952. It is 
now available for 50 cents from 
the Institute at 173 N. 9th St., 
Brooklyn 11, N. Y. Quantity 
rates will be furnished on re- 

This is the same Institute 
which publishes the well known 
TORY that is used by over 1500 
colleges and thousands of indi- 
viduals each summer to obtain 
interesting and well paying sum- 
mer jobs. Copies can be exam- 
ined at most University Place- 
ment or Deans' offices, college 
and public libraries, and school 
superintendents' offices or ob- 
tained in book stores or from 
the Institute for $3.00.

"Mental Quiet 
Room'' Effective 

A useful substitute for tran- 
quilizers — free, always available 
and effective is proposed by a 
world-famous physician in an 
article in the June Reader's Di- 

The substitute is a "mental 
quiet room," a peaceful quarter 
of the mind into which each of 
us can retire at will to shed ten- 
sions and troubles and to re- 
store ourselves. 

Says Doctor Maxwell Maltz. 
author of the article and noted 
plastic surgeon: "Ifs my belief 
that each personality is 
equipped with a center which, 
like the deep of the ocean is 
never disturbed." We need to 
find this "quiet center." 

Finding it may be difficult, 
says Doctor Maltz, but is well 
worth the effort. As a start, 
learn to control so-called "auto- 
matic" responses. Next time the 
phone rings, for example, don't 
jump to answer it. Let it ring. 
Once you learn to control your 
responses to such external stim- 
uli, you'll find it easier to con- 
trol your emotional responses. 

Such control, once achieved, is 
the key to your quiet room, your 
mental vacation spot. Like a 
real vacation place, it should be 
equipped with favorite scenes — 
images of famous paintings — 
melodies from music you enjoy 
— beloved lines of poetry. Says 
Dr. Maltz: "Above all, keep in 
mind that the key to the mat- 
ter of whether you are disturbed 
or tranquil, fearful or composed, 
is not the external stimulus, but 
your own response." 

His article. "How to Stand Up 
Under Stress," is condensed from 
the book, "psycho-cybernetics," 
published by Prentis-Hall. Inc. 

The four weeks session in July 
will begin on the 24th and end 
on August 18 with concentration 
in Library Science. Cataloging

FOR 1961-62 SEASON 

The basketball outlook for the 1961-62 season looks extremely 
bright for the Savannah State Tigers. Coach Teddy Wright, maker 
of champions, will have one of the best developed squads among 
small colleges in ihe country, reports Marion Jackson. Sports Editor 
of The Atlanta Daily World. The squad will lose only one varsity 
player, Alphonso S. McLean, at graduation. Composed of tlie same 
starters for the last three seasons, the Tigers will sport a seasoned 
senior team. This team came here in 1958. and as the years pro- 
gressed have won local, state and national honors for tlie college. 


Only one game in the S.E.A.C. conference was lost in the last 
three years by Wright's little giants. The team also boasts a three 
year conference and tournament championship win record. Having 
traveled to Kansas City, Mo., twice to participate in the N.A.I. A. 
National Tournament, the Tigers have beaten some of the nation's 
top negro colleges. Listed among tliem are Florida A & M Univer- 
sity, Southern University, Grambling College, winners of the 1961 
N.A.I.A. Tourney; Morris Brown College, Clark College. Morehouse 
College, Benedict College, Allen University, Fort Valley State Col- 
lege and others. Last season the Tigers made a good showing 
against nationally rated Tennessee A & I University and Winston 
Salem College in the Atlanta, Georgia Invitational Tournament. 


Returning- lettermen will have their work cut out in patterns 
when Coach Wright tosses up the ball for the first fall practice. 
Among the returning lettermen are WiUie Tate, James Dixon, Ira 
Jackson. Stephen Kelly, Johnny Mathis. Raymond Harper, Harvey 
Bailey. All American (NAIA) Redell Walton, and William Day. 

All in all the 1961-62 basketball season should prove to be one 
of the best ever seen at Savannah State College.

A Salute to Editor McLean 

By Redell Walton 

The entire staff of the Tiger's 
Roar would like to pay tribute 
to one who has contributed to 
the betterment of our newspa- 
per, Editor-in-Chief, Alphonso 
McLean. McLean is one of the 
most versatile students on cam- 
pus. He served as vice president 
of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity; 
played a leading role in the re- 
cent College Playhouse produc- 
tion, "Tiger at the Gates"; a 
four-year member of the varsity 
basketball squad; a member of 
the 14th Annual Men's Festival 
planning committee; Public Re- 
lations Director of the Savannah 
Midtown Chamber of Commerce; 
columnist and editor for the 
Around Our Town magazine; 
and a free lance writer and pho- 
tographer for the Herald Weekly 
Newspaper. McLean is a dedi- 
cated student, and has shown 

great Interest in the develop- 
ment of the entire college and 
student body. 

McLean is graduating this 
June, with a major concentra- 
r ^^^ tion in business 

' ^fljl^^ a d m i nistration. 
^^^^^■k He graduated

nah. Georgia. 
He enrolled at

ber of 1957. In 

Editor McLean 

my opinion, if 

we had more students on the 
campus who have as much in- 
terest in the college student 
body as McLean, the develop- 
ments and advancements here 
would be inestimable. 

Again, our sincere appreciation 
goes to Editor-in-Chief Alphonso 

New Careers for 30,000 
"Prograiiiiuing''"' Computers 

Ten years ago the occupation 
was barely known but today 
30.000 young Americans liave 
found new careers in it. This is 
programming the new electronic 
computer machines which are 
solving many problems in sci- 
ence and business faster than 
was previously possible. 

The field is growing so fast 
that no able performer will lack 
work in the next ten years. So 
reports Robert O'Brien in a June 
Reader's Digest article. "People 
Who Talk With Machines." 

Today's almost miraculous 
computing machines can, in the 
time it takes to light a cigarette. 
make calculations that would 
occupy the v/aking hours of a 
man with a desk calculator for 
two and a half months. But 
without people these electronic 
genies are spaghetti-like tangles 
of wires. 

They must have instructions 
fed into them on punched cards. 

paper or magnetic tape. A set 
of Instructions to control one 
problem, or machine "run," is 
called a program. This is liow 
programmers got their name : 
tliey write the programs that 
tell computers what to do. and 
how to do it. 

The job demands two clear- 
cut qualifications: an analytical 
orderly mind, and a regard for 
detail that borders on the ob- 
sessive. Many programmers have 
a passion for puzzles, mathe- 
matical games or chess. 

A high percentage depend on 
music for relaxation. Robert Be- 
mer of International Business 
Machines, at 41 one of the older 
programmers, has mastered 15 
musical instruments. A young 
lady programmer is an authority 
on medieval and Renaissance in- 
struments and is constructing a 
clavichord in her spare time.

Men''s Fashions 

By Charles Phillips 

Spring and summer fashions 
show a similarity to last season 
with only a few exceptions. Last 
year, if you will recall, the styles 
scene played cotton cord suits. 
Now to the cord line this season 
is a unique and different fabric 
made of dacron and cotton. This 
material is called poplin. 

It is completely washable, and 
it holds a crease longer. The 
trousers are tapered for that 
slim ivy effect, and have plain 
fronts, that is without pleats. 
These trousers come in a variety 
of colors; such as olive, ivy 
black, sea-green and tan. The 
suit is a three-button ivy model 
with lap-seams on the shoulder, 
lapel and the back of the coat. 
It has flap pockets. This suit 
can also be purchased in the 
same colors as the trousers. 

The other addition to the 
fashion family is the seersucker 
suit. In addition to being fash- 
ionable, cool, and crisp, this ma- 
terial is washable. It comes in 
dacron and cotton. It has natu- 
ral shoulders, straight-hanging 
lines, flap pockets, and a cen- 
tral vent. This suit comes in 
blue on white stripe, olive on 
white stripe, and brown on white 
stripe. It can also be gotten in 
a green plaid of various muted 

Sport coats, trousers, and 
shirts are also made of this ma- 
terial. The shirts are ivy, of 
course, with button-down col- 
lars. Another shirt in the sport- 
light is the batiste madras, 
which is a truly wonderful ma- 
terial, that is completely wash- 
able. Also oxfords that are ta- 
pered at the sleeves, and the 
.sides for that snug fit. Both of 
these shirts come in white, 
maize, tan, sea-green, and blue. 

Faculty Personality 
Of the Year 

By Veronica Owens 

The faculty personality chosen 
by the Tiger's Roar staff to be 
in this edition of the paper is 
Elonnie J, Josey, the librarian 
at Savannah State College. He 
was born in Norfolk, Virginia, 
and educated in the public 
schools of Portsmouth, Virginia. 
He is a veteran of World War II, 

Mr. Josey is a graduate of 
Howard University where he re- 
ceived the A,B, degree in His- 
tory, Then he matriculated at 
Columbia University and re- 
ceived the M.A. degree in His- 
tory; his professional training in 
Librarianship was done at the 
State University of New York 
where the M.S.L.S. was con- 

Among the positions he has 
held in various professional ca- 
pacities are : Desk Assistant, 
Journalism Library, Columbia 
University; Technical Assistant. 
New York Public Library; Li- 
brarian at Free Library of Phila- 
delphia ; Instructor of Social 
Sciences, Savannah State Col- 
lege 11954-55); Librarian. Dela- 
ware State College ( 1955-59 1 ; 
and currently Librarian and As- 
sociated Professor. Savannah 
State College (July 1, 1959). 

While he was in Delaware, Mr. 
Josey was quite active in pro- 
fessional organizations. He was 
the first Negro to edit the Dela- 
ware Library Association Bulle- 
tin, As a member of the Dela- 
ware State Department of Pub- 
lic Instruction, School Librarian 
Certification Revision Commit- 
tee, in this organization Mr.

State College Research Commit- 
tee, and he is a member of the 
Projects Committee of the Li- 
brary Section of G.T.E.A. and 
recently named Chairman of the 
Scholarship Committee. 

Mr, Josey's philosophy of Li- 
brary Service for the academic 
community is that "the college 
library undergirds the instruc- 
tional program. The college 
library is not an adjunct to the 
teaching program but the very 
foundation of a sound academic 
program. The College Library 
has the sacred duty of institut- 
ing lifetime reading habits. 
Therefore, the hbrary should 
provide recreational, as well as 
curricular materials. 

The members of The Tiger's 
Roar staff are very proud to 
have Mr. Elonnie J. Josey join 
the other faculty personalities 
of the month being spotlighted.

no time."

Dr. W, K, Payne. President, ad- 
dressed the Savannah State Col- 
lege family at the first All- 
College Assembly for the summer 
session. He spoke from the topic 
"New Frontiers in Education," 
and emphasized the intellectual 
and educational frontiers in col- 
leges. In order to succeed train- 
ing, skill, thinking and vision 
are required; opportunities, both 
open and closed, are important. 
He spoke of the need for ac- 
curacy, ability, speed and learn- 
ing on all age levels in order to 
succeesfuUy face the coming 
frontiers which are the frontiers 
of efficiency, and of ability to 
produce- The great challenge of 
the educated, he indicated, is to 
attack problems on the basis of 
the real frontiers we face; to 
learn thoroughness for ourselves. 
for society and for world ac- 
complishments. Education, he 
said, is not determined by size, 
loudness, or intentions, but by 
skill and by accuracy exhibited. 
It is concerned with learning, 
not with going to school. 

In conclusion President Payne 
said the most dangerous frontier 
is that of living where there are 
no artificial barrows. To live in 

harmony and peace is the goal, 
and this goal places serious 
responsibility on us in extending 
this most recent and modern of 
all frontiers. 

Dr. E. K, Williams. Coordinator 
of Education and Summer School 
Director, introduced the speaker. 
James E. Deen, an alumnus and 
ex-Student Council President, 
gave the invocation and Dr. C-

What Happened at the Vienna Summit? 

Recently, President Kennedy conveyed to the nation that his 
rendezvous with Soviet Premier Khrushchev at Vienna was somber, 
and that there were no concessions granted by either of the two, 
and that both tooit a firm stand on their ideologies and beliefs. 
From this we can see that this meeting accomplished nothing In 
these antagonistic moments in our history. 

The only virtue of the meeting is that the two leaders met face 
to face for the first time, however, this was sidetracked with what 
is commonly known as dictatorial diplomacy. Mr. Kennedy and 
Mr. Khrushchev met for approximately three hours without even 
the presence of Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Evidently Mr. Ken- 
nedy adopted his arbitrary policies from his idol Franklin D. 
Roosevelt, who allegedly sold Poland to the late Joseph Stalin. 

Is this indicative of the New Frontier? This writer certainly 
hopes it is not. The Soviet premier revealed information to the 
Communist world that the President held back from members of 
the Free World concerning the highly controversial Berlin crises. 
This and other paramount issues has left our representatives in 
Washington puzzled as to what actually happened at Vienna. 

I am sure that Americans everywhere hope that if the time 
should ever present itself again, the chief executive will secure an 
extensive coverage of diplomacy in the American tradition in lieu 
of the sanctioning of our allies. But, most of all we hope with 
utmost sincerity that if such a meeting should again present itself 
something concrete will materialize, rather than a social get- 
together between echelons of governments. 

Freedom For Berlin 

Freedom is of paramount importance to West Berliners, and 
the United States, as the leader of the free world, and her allied 
friends of NATO must ascertain this by more than mere intentions 
and lip service. We should make it known to the Communists that 
we will meet our obligations to Berlin, and that we will at any time, 
if necessary, defend and fight for West Germany. Only when this 
becomes a reality will the Communists lay off Berlin and her 
contemporaries. Surely, Americans recollect the Lebanon crises, 
and the Marines that were dispatched there by former President 
Eisenhower to cool things off. Mr. Khrushchev understands militant 

These steps are essential simply because West Berlin must re- 
main free as a collective representation to all Oppressed nations. 
Berlin must divorce her chaotic conditions because she is a symbol 
of freedom and hope to troubled people everywhere. 

Mayor Willy Brandt and Chancellor Konrad Adenauer appealed 
to the Reds to grant East Berlin with free elections, and conse- 
quently the right to decide her own fate. Subsequently Brandt and 
Adenauer were explicit in relating to the Reds that West Berlin 
would resist communistic threats with every available force at its 
disposal, even if she has to defend with rocks and stones as did 
her contemporaries. East Berlin. 

Now, this is all the western allies needs to know, and they 
should be willing and ready to aid and help the Berliners in their 
prolonged fight against Communist aggression. This writer does 
not believe in nor cater to war. but it is absolutely necessary that 
vigorous action be brought against the Communists to teach them 
a lesson and to prove to them that we mean business when we say 
"lay off Berlin"! It is high time for a victory in the cold war, 
especially after the catastrophic Cuban invasion. 

But one must pay for his blunders and we Americans have paid 
a costly price for the errors and miscalculations of the incumbent 
administration. With all sincerity, Americans are hoping that the 
administration has learned a lesson from the Cuban mishap, and 
will heretofore labor premeditation before resorting to action. Never- 
theless, the administration has suffered deeply and will now refrain 
from hasty decisions. 

Students Find Americans Not Virtuous, Not Indignant 

"The average American is a warm, individualistic person em- 
bodied with skill and daring, more human than superhuman. Self 
complacent, and oft€n apathetic strongly opinionated, highly social, 
naive but in a complex manner, and boastful when in a foreign 
port." The aforementioned statements are impressions of Americans 
made by foreign students attending American Universities across 
the coxintry, 

Hiroshi Takano, a leader of the Communist inspired riots that 
prevented former President Eisenhower's visit to Japan a year ago, 
no7/ after careful evaluation likes capitalism, but was more im- 
pressed by the individualistic nature of Americans. The students 
believed that Hollywood, the press and conservatism painted a very 
bad picture of Americans to their foreign contemporaries,

By William D, Hagins 

It has often been said that the United States practices what 
she advocates. This is quite true in some instances. We here in the 
United States try to preach the idea of democracy abroad, but here 
in America the Negro is not given a chance to buy a ten cent cup 
of coffee, or to eat a hardy meal without going back to their place 
of residence. 

This so-called democracy must cease in America, if America 
wants to remain a democratic country. Our courts must show the 
white people that their word is the law and they must carry them 
out or be subject to punishment. The whites in the South must 
come into the new standard of hving, and try to live happy with 
the Negro. 

It is not the young people of the majority group who are 
showing animosity against the Negro, it is the older generation. 
They are showing hatred because they are scared to lose their reign 
of supremacy which they have been accustomed to having. But 
they do not realize that all the Negro wants is a chance to show 
the world that he can help bring peace and good will to America. 

No America, the Negro is not ignorant anymore. When the 
Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth amendments were passed, 
which gave the right of citizenship to everyone, the Negro im- 
mediately started to educate himself because he realized that 
education was the only answer for the future. The future has 
arrived for the Negro and he is ready to try to write new annals in 
American history, IF he is given a chance.

The regular summer school 
session held annually at Savan- 
nah State College officially be- 
gan on June 13. 1961 

As is characteristic of summer 
school, there are numerous new 
faces around the campus. This 
change is accredited to the fact 
that besides the continuing stu- 
dents resuming their studies. 
there are also recent graduates 
beginning freshman courses, and 
teachers taking courses. 

This year's enrollment is rela- 
tively average in comparison 
with last year's. This summer 
school enrollment totals 473. 
which is a moderate decline 
from last year's 601. Neverthe- 
less, the intellectual atmosphere 
remains the same. 

Included in this year's summer 
school program are elementary 
school, secondary school, read- 
ing and science workshops which 
are being held dally.

From The Editor's Desk 

The editor wishes to take this 
opportunity to welcome some 
and say farewell to others. To 
those of you who are leaving at 
the end of the six weeks session, 
I hope, as you go your separate 
ways, fond memories of Savan- 
nah State College campus and 
the college family will go with 
you. To those of you who are 
experiencing your first quarter 
on our campus, I hope you have 
been favorably impressed by all 
you have come in contact with. 

However, whatever your status 
on the campus, or your status in 
life— whether educator, student, 
or laborer— be the best of what- 
ever you are and do the best of 
whatever you can. The world to- 
day is calling for the best in all 
fields of endeavor. In order to 
face the new frontiers, we must 
be prepared in the best of ways 
and in every way possible. There- 
fore, let us not take our teach- 
ing, our studying, or our work 
lightly; be not concerned with 
just a pay check or a barely 
passing grade. But let us be con- 
cerned with performing what- 
ever task undertaken with the 

greatest amount of proficiency, 
striving always for supremacy 
and never satisfied with medi- 

I hope all of you are having 
or have had an enjoyable and 
memorable stay on our campus 
and one that has provided or Is 
providing maximum educational

Alcoholism: A Threat to You? 

An alcoholic may feel terribly alone — but he isn't. For every 
alcoholic, five people are personally affected. Indirectly, all of us 
are affected. 

There are five million alcoholics in the U, S. today, according 
to the National Council on Alcoholism, and the disease costs a total 
of a billion dollars a year — a conservative estimate. Where does the 
money go? To pay for hospital, prison, and welfare expense . . . the 
loss to industry . . . the accidents caused by alcoholism. 

That's why alcoholism is a threat to you — even if you never 
took a drink in your life, even if you never will. That's why you 
should know something about it. and do something about it. 

Most people, when they think of an alcoholic, imagine some 
bleary-eyed, ill-smelling, unshaven bum in filthy rags. 

It might surprise them to learn that most alcoholics have well- 
paying jobs, children, nice homes. They may be gifted, sensitive, 
charming. One may be president of your board of education . . . 
your butcher . , , your bowling pal. He may be your relative. 
Your next-door neighbor. You. 

Few recognize them. And few of them can— or will recognize 

These are the hidden alcoholics. 

Look at these statistics: 75 million Americans (67% of all 
adults) drink; of them, one in 15 has a drinking problem; and of 
these 97% are not on skid row. 

Alcoholism, according to the American Medical Association, is 
a disease— like cancer, like TB. And in terms of incidence, It ranks 

A heavy drinker need not be an alcoholic. The heavy drinker 
may be able to stop drinking. An alcoholic cannot. 

Oh, he may stop for a few days, even weeks, even montiis. But 
he'll start again. He has to. He needs alcohol as desperately as 
some diabetics need their insulin. Only many alcoholics don't even 
know they're sick, let alone that they can be helped. 


The National Council on Alcoholism lists these stages In. be- 
coming a problem drinker, 

1 — You drink socially, beer and other low-alcoholic drinks. 
There is no set pattern to your drinking, 

2 — You get drunk with some regularity. You begin having 
blackouts — no, you don't pass out. You just forget, you have a 
memory blank. 

3— You gulp your drinks instead of siping them. And you sneak 
drinks. Liquor has become important in your Ufe — and you don't 
like to think about it, or to talk about It. At this point, you can

Lots of Spice 

The Faculty Personality of the Month 

By Samuel Truell 

The rise of the Detroit Tigers and the Cincinnati Reds as 
pennant contenders is shocking to baseball fans everywhere from 
Maine to the Rockies. Last year both teams finished remotely in 
the second division and it was anticipated by the pre-season 
diamond league that the Redlegs of the National League would 
run a repeat performance. 

As of now the two teams performance has contradicted the 
fortune-telling of baseball writers and sports commentators alike. 
Cincinnati and Detroit are leading the National and American 
Leagues respectively. The bulk of the Reds success can be attributed 
to the excellent pitching of two young men, Joey Jay (10-4) and 
Ken -Hunt i8-3). These two brilliant hurlers are strongly backed 
by the super 6 hitting Prank Robinson and Vada Pinson. During 
the month of June. Pinson upped his batting average 100 points 
to a neat 3.20. 

The Tiger's success can be summarized as follows: The powerful 
hitting of Norm Cash, Rocky Colovits. veteran Al Kaline and the 
acquired additions of speedy Bill Bruton and Rookie Jake Wood 
who is a leading candidate for the rookie-of-the-year honors. 

Another reason for the Tiger's success is due to their good pitch- 
ing. Their triumphant Prank Lary, Jim Bunning and Phil Reagan 
have compiled a satisfactory twenty-five victories between them- 
selves. Regan has gone the distance in seven games. 

Cash, who until now never could quite make the starting lineup. 
is now leading the American League with a respectable 3.67 batting 
average accompanied by 24 circuit blows and 66 runs batted in. 

This writer believes the two teams are having a bit of luck, 
as did the world champion Pittsburgh Pirates last year, and subse- 
quently will cool off after the AU-Star games. My predictions how 
the clubs will be situated in the first division of both leagues come 
season's end are as follows: 

National League 

1. Los Angeles 

2. Milwaukee 

3. Cincinnati 

4. San Francisco 

American League 

1. New York 

2. Chicago 

3. Cleveland 

4. Detroit 

5. Baltimore 


The Destruction 
Of Sophistication

which they play everyday, 

Yet, there are those who never 
play any roles. 

But of all the artificial persons, 
there is but one kind who

nothing what he thought him- 
self to be. 

All his dreams are fantasies, 

All ideals fallible. 

He discovers, much to his sorrow, 
that his life is but a sham. 

One moment of awareness, one 
brief and terrifying moment. 

All the years of one's existence 
and all the joys one's known 
are shattered during this 
ephemeral time. 

Oh, how sad it is to live (or think 
you've living).

Summer fashions will take on 
a carefree casualness for the 
coed this summer. Outfits are in 
the making and they will be in 
combinations ranging fro m 
skirts and blouses to popovers 
and walks. 

Play skirts are above the 
knees, and for ease of movement 
and linear grave, the culotte is 
a natural. 

Going together in startling 
and unexpected combinations is 
what colors are doing this sum- 
mer. One outstanding combina- 
tion is a dress and jacket suit 
in pink, tobacco, and black. 
There is lots of black and white 
dashed with other colors such 
as lemon, tobacco, or -parrot 
green. There are miles and miles 
of Roman stripes. One in par- 
ticular is a smashing dress in 
mustard, red, navy blue, and 
white jersey. 

This summer, coed, do not 
worry about your skin. For at 
this moment a night cream 
exists that may well begin the 
age of angelness for women. 

The faith you thought once pro- 
found just doesn't seem to 

Life becomes sheer oblivion. 

Ah, how grand it is to live a life 
that is "real." 

A life that is "certain." Not 
always filled with fear. 

Adventure, adversity, audacity, 
and strife; 

Words. Words tinged witli ex-

the one who rushes

to discover that many lines

By Verdelle Lambert 

Portrait of a musical minister: 
Willie Williams. Jr. He is soft- 
spoken, amiable, and quick of 

Willie is a senior majoring in 
mathematics and minoring in 
biology. He is vice president of 
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, a 
member of the College Play- 
house, and a member of The 
Tiger Staff. 

Willie began his matriculation 
at Savannah State College in 
1949, Shortly thereafter he joined 
the Air Force, Upon his return 
to State, he found himself in a 
different environment. 

"I think that the caliber of 
students at the college now, as 
opposed to the caliber of stu- 
dents when I first entered, is to 
a large extent more progressive 
and more education-minded." 
he commented. 

As for his musical activities, 
Willie plays the alto saxophone 
in a five-piece band called "The 
Preacher and the Deacons. [" 
Naturally with a name like that, 
the music couldn't be anything 
but — heavenly. 

Willie's hobbies are reading, 
playing tennis, and collecting 
jazz records. His favorite record- 
ing is "The Sermon," by Jimmy 

"The world is yours for a 
prayer and a smile— and hard 
work," This is Willie's philosophy 
of life, and a good one it is too. 
At the present time, he is the 
itinerant minister at Townsley 
Chapel. After graduation he 
plans to attend the Theology 
Seminary at Shaw University. 

The Campus Spotlight takes 
pleasure in presenting Willie 
Williams, Jr., as its outstanding 
personality of the month. 

By Norman B. Elmore 

That new, dashing, pleasant. 
and jovial personality whom you 
have encountered on our campus, 
is none other than Dr. Forrest 
Gran Wiggins. Professor and 
Chairman of the Division of 

As witnessed by an address 
given by Dr. Wiggins shortly 
after his arrival at Savannah 
State College, one can readily 
deduce that he is a scholar of 
subtle profundity. 

Dr. Wiggins received his ele- 
mentary and high school educa- 
tion from tlie local schools of 
Indianapolis, Indiana. He is the 
recipient of the Bachelor of 
Science degree in English from 
Butler University, the Master of 
Arts degree in Philosophy, and 
the Doctor of Philosophy degree 
from the University of Wis- 

Our distinguished faculty 
member has done considerable 
study in the field of Modern 
Languages at universities in both 
Mexico and France. Among the 
many honors received by Dr, 
Wiggins, he has functioned as 
both Department Fellow and 
Post-doctorate Research Fellow 
in Philosophy at the University 
of Wisconsin. 

Dr. Wiggins has served on the 
faculties of the following insti- 
tutions: Morehouse. Bishop, 
Louisville Municipal, and North 
Carolina Colleges, as well as 
those of Minnesota. Howard, 
Johnson C. Smith, and Allen 

Our personality of the month 
is affiliated with the American 
Philosophy Association. the 
Metaphysical Society of America, 
and the American Association of 
University Professors. 

Dr. Wiggins is the author of 
a vast amount of published 
articles in his field, so vast that 
there is not adequate space to 
list them. 

Seemingly cosmopolite and 
ever-seeking to gain additional 
knowledge and to broaden his 
horizons, our subject has 
traveled extensively in Haittl, 
Canada, France, Switzerland, 
Germany, Italy, and Mexico. Dr. 
Wiggins states that he has 
always been very Impressed by 
pleasure trips during his foreign 

Dr. Wiggins Is the proud hus- 
band of Mrs. Nell D. Wiggins, a 
teacher by occupation, and Is 
the pride and joy of two chil- 
dren, Ernest and Florence. Play- 
ing bridge Is one of his most 
entertaining hobbies. 

The members of the staff of 
the Tiger's Roar are indeed 
proud to have Dr. Forrest Oran 
Wiggins join the ranks of other 
distinguished faculty members 
who have been spotlighted. 

Ivy League vs. Presidential Two-Button 

By Percy L. Harden 

The American styling creates 
a new tempo in fashions. Every- 
where you go in the United 
States there is a well-dressed 

As you know. President Ken- 
nedy is youthful, dynamic, 
vigorous, and very business-like. 
My question is: Will his two- 
button suits exert a fashion in- 
fluence on men's clothes? 

The two-button suit of the 
President has not taken affect 
on the college man yet. The 
typical well-dressed college man 
wears a light weight wash-and- 
wear cord or dacron and cotton 
poplin suit in the three-button 
Ivy style in popular shades of 
blue, olive green, or khaki. He 
wears shirts in the Ivy style 
which features the new snap-tab 
collar and can be found in 
several new shades. The tie is a 
red (stripes, large or small) and 
will match numerous different 
outfits. Socks are solid and shoes 

are Italian imports or Shell 

The picture has been painted 
of a young, well-dressed Ameri- 
can male. The question remains. 
Will Mr. Kennedy be converted 
to the Ivy League or will the 
Ivy Leaguers make a drastic 
change to the presidential two- 
button suit? I might add that 
Mr. JFK looks very Impressive 
in the two-button model. If the 
men should consider this style, 
maybe by next issue we will have 
a few converts.

Savannah State College is optimistic about 61-62 basketball 

There is a very good outlook for the upcoming basketball season 
here at Savannah State College. With the return of the triumphant 
Redell Walton (AH American), Ira Jackson and Willie Tate. These 
three will be backed by two very scintillating ball handlers, namely 
Stephen Kelly and James Dixon. 

The aforementioned players, along with their wise coach. Ted 
Wright, are expected by everyone with even a minute knowledge 
of sports, to make it three in a row to Kansas and, hence, the 
NAIA tournament. 

On the two previous visits to Kansas our boys gained valuable 
experience, and this writer believes wholeheartedly that the mag- 
nificent five's tournament experience and tricky ball handling will 
compensate for what the team lacks in height. The team's only 
liability is that of one Alphonso McLean which is a consequence 
of June graduation. Mr, McLean's versatility will be highly missed 
by everyone, but nevertheless we are everything pessimistic, and 
consequently are hoping that the team will continue its magnificent 
and hence perpetuate it's maneuverability and strength over the

Ediualioii For Creativity 

Beginning in about 1946. theie is a new tempo in business. 
The population explosion is very real indeed. The explosion m the 
fields of research and development is likewise tremendous. It is 
estimated that American businesses now spend as much for re- 
search in one year as was spent in any ten years before World 
War II There has also been an explosion in creativity of ideas, 
not just the technical but the operational ones also. New business 
systems, new business methods, operational research, automatic 
data processing-the list is endless. To follow the methods of 
yesteryear is to court disaster. 

Competition, in all its forms, has been stepped up. New products 
appear on the market daily. Old products are remodeled past all 
recoenition. Imagineering is rampant, not just in the field of 
engineering and research. New marketing concepts are developed 
daily. Planned obsolescence, though controversial, is not an un- 
common feature in American business. 

In the light of these facts, what kind of a man does business 
now demand of the colleges and universities? I would submit the 
following tentative list of attributes: Bold thinking. Breadth of 
thinking. Intellectual integrity. Intellectual toughness— willingness 
to battle for an idea. The innovative, approach— the creative ap- 
proach, Risk-taking. 

It is difficult to single out from the above list the most vital 
item, but I would suggest "creativity." In these times we need to 
run fast just to stand still. International communism is battling 
on the triple fronts of ideas, economics and the military. And they 
are often winning; We need greater awareness of these things. We 
are losing battles while many people don't even know there Is a war 
going on. 

We need new ideas most of all: Ideas about global strategy. 
Ideas about the optium role of business in a cold war economy. 
Ideas about maintaining a high standard of living while producing, 
competitively in world markets, Ideas about maintaining an 
idealistic viewpoint in the fact of cold, pragmatic opposition from 
world communism. 

Business cannot divorce itself from international affairs. Busi- 
ness, no less than American labor, government or the teaching 
profession, must carry its share of the burden of what we conceive 
to be enlightened, forward-looking humanity. 

Give us them, from the colleges and universities: Men who 
have been taught^even forced if necessary— to think for them- 
selves. Men who distrust the obvious. Men who doubt the methods 
of the past, Men who are able to conceptualize the future. Men 
who have the boldness and imaginativeness to pioneer in the 
development of new business systems and new businesses. Men who 
have the ingenuity and drive to develop and reimprove new devices 
and techniques. 

We need men who have been schooled in the principles of 
creativity and who dare to court the ridicule of the masses for the 
sake of improving the lot of mankind. 

You may well say. "Yes, but is business prepared to use these 
bold young innovators? If we give them to you, will you use their 
abilities to best advantage, or will you put them in the ancient 
straitjacket of conformity?" 

Frankly, we in the business world have much to do to prepare 
to use these men. to further their development, to apply their 
talents to the use of the organization. We need to learn better how 
to recognize and reward clear and imaginative thinking. We need 
to learn how to set up organizations in such a way as best to 
foster Individual development and the production of fertile new 
ideas. Failure to learn these lessons may spell doom for free 
enterprise. We are now at the crossroads. We must reprice: 
Enthusiasm. Ideas, Energy. Innovation. 

And reward their possessors — for to them belongs the future. 
What is needed is not just a few courses in creativity — although 
that may be essential— but whole new philosophy of business organ- 
ization that will enable us to use bold new ideas, mold them into 
the existing business, or reconstruct the business to fit the best of 
the new ideas. We need the vision to see new business possibilities, 
the wisdom to evaluate the risks, and the courage to march down 
the road of innovation, while retaining the best of the values of 
the past. 

Difficult? Yes. but I submit to you that treading in the "safe 
and ancient ways" in this day of constant change is by far the 
riskiest road we could travel. 

Politics and World News 

(Continued from Page 2) 

One African student contends that "Africans were confused 
when they read of racial inequalities in our periodicals," But he 
made it clear that African students are vicarious readers and that 
they have cognizance of what's happening. All of the students 
agreed that Americans were difficult to generalize. He is neither 
good nor bad, devil nor saint.

Shulton. has compiled clues to 
making a smash hit with Her 
. , . and Her . . . and Her. 

1. Know what to say. Most 
women resent the condescending 
"little woman" approach, so, if 
you compliment her on her 
knowledge of batting averages 
or the international situation, 
don't sound as if it's a miracle 
that she knows these things. 
Virtually every woman likes to 
be proud of her man's intellect, 
so profit from the example of a 
gent who was famous for— 
among other things— his ability 
to converse on any topic. His 
name: Giovanni Giacomo Casa- 

2. Act devoted. Brush imagi- 
nary dust from her shoulder, 
holds hands under the dinner 
table, touch your lips to the 
glass her lips have touched. 

3. Learn to read her signaJs. 
Many men suspect — and many 
women cheerfully admit — that 
women have a language of their 
own, expressed in tonal vari- 
ations and pauses between words 
as well as in the words them- 
selves. You'll never speak it. but 
for optimum success with bilin- 
gual ladies, it behooves you to 
understand a little of it. 

4. Act jealous. A man who's 
unreasonable — within reasonable 
limits, of course — is one of the 
most effective ego-builders a 
woman can have. Therefore, 
grumble a bit when she smiles 
fetchingly at another man.

still stop drinking. But if you don't . . . you will have passed the 
danger line. 

4 — You drink more than you planned to; you become drunk 
when you planned not to; and you become extravagant with money 
because of your new found confidence. 

What becomes afterwards — the "eye-opener," belligerence, self- 
excuses, benders, self-hatred and resentment Ot otheii;. "the 
shakes." hopelessness, and insanity or death — may take months 
... or even 10 to 20 years. 

Estimates are that the total loss due to alcoholism is one billion 

The problem drinker himself loses an estimated 22 days of 
work every year because of alcoholism, and two days more than 
average because of illness. He has twice as many accidents, accord- 
ing to studies made by Yale University, and he dies 12 years sooner 
than he would if he didn't drink. 

Of course, no one can measure the effects of broken homes, 
miserable children, and unhappy friends and relatives in terms of 
statistics or dollars and cents. 

Some 10 years ago, it was generally accepted that alcoholism 
was a moral issue. Today with more understanding of alcoholism, 
more is being done to help alcoholics— medically, psychiatrically, 
institutionally, spiritually, and socially. 

What you might do is learn all you can about the disease- 
so you can recognize a problem drinker, so you can counsel him, 
so you know where to guide him for help. 

Information — unbiased and unexaggerated — is available from 
the National Council on Alcoholism. Another organization that will 
give help is Alcoholics Anonymous. 

An alcoholic can recover. He will never be able to drink again. 
but he can lead a normal, happy, and healthy life, without alcohol. 

You don't help an alcoholic by nagging, scolding, lecturing, 
moralizing or making empty threats. But getting an alcoholic to 
professional assistance can be an important step toward his 

Savannah State 
Reading Workshop 

One of the features of the 
Summer School program at Sa- 
vannah State College is a work- 
shop in the improvement of 
reading. The workshop is com- 
posed of twenty-eight Georgia 
and South Carolina elementary 
and high school teachers who 
are vitally concerned with tak- 
ing steps to improve the read- 
ing abilities in their schools. The 
workshop is directed by Dr. 
Maurice A, Lee, professor of Eng- 
lish and director of the Reading 
Center at Morgan State College, 
Baltimore, Maryland He is 
assisted by Mrs, Louise Owens. 
assistant professor of English. 
Savannah State College. 

The workshop has many in- 
teresting and profitable features. 
One of the workshop's features 
is the administration of the Iowa 
Silent Reading Test to help 
members of the workshop to 
evaluate their reading. 

Each member of the workshop 
is required to make a group and 
do an individual project. Seven 
major topics have been given in 
order to solicit the interest of 
each member of the class. The 
general framework of the class 
is centered around these areas: 
The Development of the Child 
in Reading ; Reading Interests 
and Abilities; Improving the 
Essential Reading Skills; What 
can be done for the Disabled 
Reader; Reading Improvement 
in the High School; Reading in 
the Content Fields, and Student 
Evaluation. From these topics, 
each person will develop a plan 
to improve or set up a reading 
program in the school in which 
he works during the next school 

Consultants have been asked 
to come in to lecture and demon- 
strate certain factors in relation 
to reading, Mr. Jerry Allen, 
School Psychologist in Chatham 
County, spoke on "Testing and 
Reading Achievement" on 
Wednesday, June 21, On Thurs- 
day, June 22. the class observed 
a classroom demonstration In 
reading to three groups by Mrs. 
Sadie Steele, a teacher at Sol C. 
Johnson Elementary School, Sa- 
vannah, Georgia. Mrs, Gertrude 
Greene, psychiatric social worker, 
Chatham County, spoke on "The 
Emotional Problems of Children 
with Reference to Reading" on 
Friday, June 23, 

Mrs, Mattie B, Payne, Coun- 
selor, Alfred E. Beach High 
School, Savannah, Georgia, spoke 
to the group on Monday. June

Guest pianist, Marshall Izen, in a scene from a German opera 
that he presented as a part of his performance on July 7th Assembly 
program held in Meldrim. 

^ Marshall Izen Guest at Assembly 

Marshall Izen. pianist and humorist, appeared at the All- 
College assembly on Friday. July 7. 

Mr. Izen's thorough musical background adds dimension and 
substance to his humor as well as refinement and taste to his 
serious offerings. During the program he played Waltzes by 
Schubert, "Flight of the Bumble Bee." "Soldiers' March," Chopin's 
"Waltz in E Minor." and several versions of "Happy Birthday" as 
he imagined famous composers would have arranged them. 

The most humorous part of the program was a German opera 
in which Mr. Izen portrayed the entire opera with the use of hand 
puppets. He provided his own music and used the top of the piano 
for his stage. 

Mr. Izen received a Bachelor's degree in music from De Paul 
University in Chicago. He studied at the Julllard School of Music. 
New York City, in preparation for a concert career. Through a 
series of odd adventures, his unique musical and satiric talents first 
received recognition in several New York supper clubs. His many 
appearances on television have included the Ed Sullivan and Steve 
Allen shows. 

He 7/as secured for the College program by Dr. C. A. Bralth- 
waite. Chairman of the Department of Fine Arts.

jejune babblement, and asinine 
affectations. Let your extempo- 
raneous descantings and un- 
premeditated expitations have 
intelligibility and veracious 
vivacity, without rodomotade or 
thrasonical bombast,

Wiggins Addresses 
College Assembly 

Dr, Forrest O. Wiggins de- 
livered a challenging address at 
the second All-College assembly. 
He spoke from a thought derived 
from the phrase "Mourn Not the 
Dead, but Mourn the Apathetic, 
the Meek, the Coward." He 
chose as his subject "The Alms 
of Education" of which he said 
there are two. They are the 
training of intelligence and the 
Instilling of ideas. 

Other points highlighted in 
the address were that the role 
of the scholar is to prepare ones 
own mind and to develop moral 
sensitivity. Scholars should have 
the capacity to see beyond ones 
own personal problems, yet have 
the courage to face them with 
an open mind, 

"The responsibility of college," 
he said, "is to teach methods of 
freedom." Within this realm of 
responsibility are two poles— the 
teacher and the learner, In con- 
clusion. Dr. Wiggins stated that 
in order to successfully face the 
challenges of this responsibility, 
both teacher and learner need 
to seek new positions, and travel 
new paths. 

Dr, Paul Taylor introduced the 
speaker. Dr. C, A. Braithwaite 
provided the music and Rev. A. 
E, Peacock gave the invocation 
and presided

Iiiiportance of the 

College Newsijaper 

By James C. Matthews 
The college newspaper plays 
an important role in college life. 
You may not know it, but col- 
leges are represented to the out- 
side world by student publica- 
tions. The college newspaper 
does not only represent the col- 
lege In the outside world, but it 
also serves as an outlet for in- 
forming students of the activities 
that have taken place on and off 
campus which concern them. 

The college newspaper Is an 
instrument of mass communica- 
tion on campus. It Is a publica- 
tion by which the students may 
speak or voice their conceptions 
through editorials, feature 
stories, poems, etc. This also 
raises the question of freedom 
of the student publication versus 
control. The college newspaper 
represents the students and 
gives them a chance to debate 
and test experimental thoughts, 
emotions, and beliefs. A free 
colelge newspaper gives self- 
expression of the outstanding 
moments on campus. It has 
many motives of expression and 
is as multiform as human 

The college newspaper does not 
only have a local campus value, 
but a professional value also. 
For many colleges are judged by 
their student publications. So 
from these conceptions, it can be 
concluded that a college news- 
paper holds the major spotlight 
of student expression in college

Deinoorafy Comes to 

Democracy has finally come to 
Dallas, Texas, the last of the big 
cities of Texas to integrate their 
stores, restaurants, and schools. 

Dallas is now undergoing a 
plan to adjust their citizens to 
integration. The following are 
some of the features of the plan 
which the citizens of Dallas have 
adopted as taken from the ar- 
ticle "Dallas Follows Long-Range 
Plan to Adjust Citizens to Inte- 
gration," which appeared in The 
New York Times. Sunday, July 30. 

"The concept of what is in- 
volved in school desegregation 
has been broadened to include 
many other spheres of life." 

"Publicity has been avoided to 
avert the crystalizing of hostile 
factions and to thwart agitators 
on both sides." 

"The operations have been 
kept a community affair, not 
connected with the numerous re- 
gional and national organiza- 
tions involved in racial situations 

"The main bone of contention, 
segregation vs. desegregation, 
has been sidetracked in favor of 
the more pressing question of 
law and order vs. violence." 

Recently a number of stores 
and restaurants were persuaded 
to lift the bars of segregation 
and come into the new light of 

Since Dallas adopted their 
plan of integration, there has 
been a minimum of sit-in and 
other sort of demonstrations. 
The southbound Freedom Riders 
decided to by-pass Dallas so that 
their plan could have the fullest 
chance to succeed. 

This approach to integration 
problems which Dallas has now 
in effect is a new approach for 
the South. Instead of having a 
number of committees to handle 
their situation, they have come 
together as one to iron out the 
evil which follows segregation. 

It is my honest opinion that if 
other cities in the South could 
adopt a plan similar to Dallas, 
the Soutli would eventually be- 
come a place where any Ameri- 
can would be proud to live. 

No, America. Dallas, is deter- 
mined not to be another Little 
Rock or New Orleans where Na- 
tional Guardsmen had to come 
and escort Negroes to school. 
Dallas realizes that this is a new 
day which is drawing nigh upon 
them, and they are destined to 
make Dallas a place where de- 
mocracy exists. 

By Samuel M. Truell 
JFK Increases Military Strength 

In Ms address to the nation via radio and television. President 
John F- Kennedy stressed that the alternative of the present Berlin 
criiis nay be all out nuclear war or humiliation on a national level, 
Tlie ,mei executive requested an increase in this country's military 
power to stand against the communist threat against humanity and 
freedoai. In a very somber speech the President made it clear to 
the aggressors that we will meet all of our commitments in Berlin 
and elsewhere, regardless of the consequences. 

The President requested that the Congress make appropriations 
for him to double or possibly triple the draft, in order that he may 
extend the service branches. He said that Americans have borne 
burdens before with courage, and will not divorce them now. Indi- 
vidual sacrifices must be made in order that freedom may survive. 

It can plainly be seen that such a large increase in revenues 
will result in a bulky tax hike, but Mr. Kennedy ruled this out. 
Nevertheless an increase in taxes is anticipated no later than next 
January. We are sure that the American public is behind the Presi- 
dent, but one must wonder just where the money is to come from. 
Within a period of nearly seven months, Mr. Kennedy and his 
Harvard chums have greatly increased our national debt and it 
seems as though the President thinks he is still spending "papa Joe's 

Before any of my admirers entertain the idea that Truell is 
anti-Kermedy, let me state freely, I am not. But I do believe the 
incumbency should have put more emphasis on military might 
instead of all their capricious federal aid to this or federal control 
of that. 

It will be a jubilant occasion on the homeland when the United 
States regains her strong foothold in the world community and 
ceases to always be in retaliation to the enemies of liberty. In these 
crucial moments in our times the leader of the non-communit 
countries must seek more efficient measures than the forestated 
one because one of these days it may be too late. 

Seemingly. Mr. Kennedy moves only upon castigations of the 
Kremlin; but he must realize that the man who moves hastily is 
victorious and the man who moves slowly will reach his destina- 
tion, but when? 

Negro on Civil Rights Panel 

In spit€ of the vilifications of the Deep South, the Senate 
approved Negro integrationLst Spott.swood W. Robinson III, as a 
member of the Federal Commission on Civil Rights. 

Robui£on was confirmed unanimously by a vote of 73-13 as a 
r^tilt of President Kennedy's nomination of him as a member of 
the six-man investigating committee. Mr. Robinson, Dean of the 
School of Law at Howard University, has on numerous occasions 
counseled the National Association for the Advancement of Colored 
People in Civil Rights suits. 

Because of Robinson's avowed stand against racial inequalities, 
Southerners argued that he was partisan to the rights of tlie Negro 
and consequently would lean only to the side of the Negro. Robinson 
is one of the nation's leading advocates of racial integration in all 
walks of life in our American society. 

U. S. Makes Second Suh-Orbital Flight 

Early in July astronaut Virgil I. Grissom made the second sub- 
orbital flight into space. The flight was supposed to be identical to 
the one made by Commander of the Navy Alan B. Sheppard last 

Grissom's triumph almost cost iiis life, due to an accident on 
his part or by a meciianical failure. Before he could be rescued 
by tlie awaiting helicopters, the hatch on the door of the Liberty 
Bell 7 blew open. As a result the 5-foot-7-inch Air Force Captain 
was forced to leave the space capsule and swim for his life. 

The dashing sixteen-minute flight of astronaut Grissom was 
good in its main respect. The Korean War veteran came down safely 
after a flight which soared 118 miles into space and 303 miles down 
the Atlantic Ocean. 

The events that occurred immediately after his splash into the 
ocean are what subordinated his trip to that of Commander Shep- 
ard's. After releasing himself from the Mercury capsule, the capsule 
sank about 300 miles down into the Atlantic, and with it went $5 
million dollars worth of equipment and vital space information. 

Space experts tried to minimize the liabilities to the public but 
there is little doubt that the sinking of tlie capsule failed to compli- 
cate matters. Prior to the hatch incident, it was anticipated that 
Grissom's flight would be the last sub-orbital flight. All attention 
was to be directed toward an atlas flight similar to the one made 
by Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin. But now another flight is 
almost inevitable. 

All in the second flight was good but not excellent as the first 
American flight. The reasons for these sub-orbital flights are 
simple, the United States places more emphasis on the individual 
life than do the Soviets. The Russians may get lucky with the 
touchdown, but most games are won with consistent and frequent 
first and tens. 


The Elementary and Secondary 
Workshop presented President 
Payne with a check for the Stu- 
dent National Defense Loan Fund 
at the end of the workshop 
course. William Hamilton, III, 
made the presentation. 

Members of the August gradu- 
ating class had an enjoyable 
evening at the Reception for 
Seniors given by President and 
Mrs. Payne at their residence. 

A Savannah State College 
Senior, Kharn Collier, has been 
appointed manager of the new 
Bowling Alley which is scheduled 
to open in the early fall.

From the Editor'^s Desk 

This Is the Last 

Issue of 
The Tiger^s Roar 
This School Year 

So Long Until 

For four years I have strug- 
gled here at Savannah State 
College as a student in the Col- 
lege family. These years have 
been most rewarding for me in 
many ways — educationally, so- 
cially, and intellectually. As I 
pass from the hallowed halls of 
SSC to confront the chaos which 
awaits in the world before me, I 
shall miss the persons and things 
which comprise this campus; but 
I shall also feel that the past 
four years of experiences have 
prepared me to be able to cope 
with the awaiting conflicts. 

I challenge you who are high 
school graduates, freshmen, 
sophomores, juniors, and even 
non-graduating seniors to take 
advantage of the opportunities 
which college offers you. No 
matter how close or how remote 
you may be to achieving your 
goal, be serious minded about it. 
Do not play too much; set your 
objectives and aim high for your 
goals. Then work hard to achieve 

those objectives and to reach 
those goals. However, strive to 
be a well-rounded individual as 
well. Savannah State College 
offers many opportunities for 
growth. Take advantage of them. 
Remember as much can be 
learned outside of class as inside 
the classroom, if one properly 
applies himself. 

I challenge the graduating 
seniors also. Let us not stop here, 
but instead seek avenues of 
higher learning and opportuni- 
ties for wider growth. As a 
friend of mine says: "The world 
is yours for a prayer and a smile 
—plus hard work." And my 
motto is that "Every man is the 
maker of his own fortune." 
Therefore, let us one and all 
word hard and make our fortune 
a rewarding one. 

Yours sincerely, 


August 16. 1961

Major League Baseball 

There is a tight two team pennant race in both of the leagues 
this season. In the National League the rallying Los Angeles 
Dodgers are fighting a torrid race with the league-leading Redlegs 
of Cincinnati. The former Bums of Brooklyn have been hampered 
by injuries to many of their star players this summer, but have 
managed to stay in the thick of the pennant race. 

At present the Cincinnati club is leading the Dodgers by one 
game. By the time this writing goes to press the Dodgers may 
well be in first place. 

However, if the aforementioned is to become a reality the Los 
Angeles Club must not concede to the powerful Reds. Cincinnati 
has been in the number one position in the National League for 
the majority of the current baseball campaign. Her pitching can 
cope with the best in the league and the team hitting is tremendous. 

In the Junior Circuit the Detroit Tigers and the Bronx Bombers 
of New York are battling to the hilt to see who will represent the 
American League in the rich World Series. Tiger Norm Cash is still 
leading the American League in hitting and is a runner-up to big 
Jim Gentile of the Baltimore Orioles in the runs batted in depart- 

It seems as though the Yanks have a triumvirate in Mickey 
Mantle, Roger Maris and pitcher Whitey Ford to spark the rest of 
manager Ralph Houk's squad. Mantle and Maris have compiled a 
total of 79 circuit blows between the two of them and Ford has 
been victorious in 19 of 21 decisions. In addition to these established 
stars, catchers Elston Howard and John Blanchard have been hit- 
ting the bail solidly. Blanchard just tied a major league record by 
hitting four home runs in four times at bat. 

Even though the pennant races seem to be two team affairs 
in both leagues, it should make a very interesting finale come 
September; and the post-season classic may be between two old 
rivals, the Yankees and the Dodgers. But one thing can be ascer- 
tained, whoever enters the series in October will be fighting to make 
the forthcoming series one of the most exciting ones ever. 


(Time: "Aultl Lang Syne*") 

Oh SSC, Dear SSC, proud of Thy name are we 
Great Alma Mater of the South 
Thus it shall always be. 

This day of days we come to part 
From Comrades loved so true 
We plan to make Thee proud of us 
As we are proud of you. 
Our hearts are filled with sorrow now 
We hate to bid good-bye 
But happiness, perhaps success await 
Our aims so high. 

Now watch the time for us because 
Someday great things we'll do 
We plan to make Thee proud of us 
As we are proud of you.
