World and News Politics

Importance of the College Newspaper 

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 sto- 
ries, poems, etc. 

This also raises the question 
of freedom of the student publi- 

cation versus control. The col- 
lege newspaper represents the 
students and gives them a 
chance to debate and test ex- 
perimental thoughts, emotions, 
and beliefs. A free college news- 
paper gives self-expression of 
the outstanding moments on 
campus. It has many motives of 
expression and is as multiform 
as human emotion. 

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 

Presidenfs Message 

Every generation of college students faces new and changing 
conditions. Many students appear to be worried about the lack of 
ability to finance their college education. This in itself is not new 
or different in American higher education. This condition has 
persisted since colonial days. It is no exaggeration to state that 
today the number and variety of sources of financial assistance 
have never been as numerous. Few college students, however, are 
willing to believe this statement. It appears that a number of 
factors may be responsible for the apparent shortage. 

In many instances, college students and high school seniors 
have failed to do specific planning for a college career. Applications 
for aid have been filed at times when the student would be least 
likely to receive help. Many of the applications, when filed, have 
been executed in a manner that tended to discourage the accept-nce 
of the student. When applications are filed a month or two before 
the college opens, most of the funds for that year have been 
exhausted. If applications are not properly filled, contain omissions, 
erasures, mistakes in spelling and punctuation, some doubt is raised 
concerning the validity of the risk. Agencies and individuals wish 
to make certain that students are able and willing to do acceptable 
and superior grades of college work. 

Another factor which makes it appear that financial aid is 
scarce is the lack of acquaintance with available resources. There 
is a wealth of literature describing hundreds of sources of aid. 
Almost every student of college caliber could qualify for aid under 
several agencies. The ability of a student to wade through informa- 
tion and discover which one meets his condition best is one index 
of his ability to succeed, 

A third factor which contributes to the apparent scarcity Is 
the lack of initiative and drive. Students who are willing to work 
can find many opportunities to supplement their major source of 
income. This willingness must be accompanied by the desire to 
perform first class service wherever one Is employed. This trait 
and characteristic should be exemplified in every type of job 
opportunity as well as in the academic program. Students must 
have enough drive and initiative to make their needs and desires 
known to the people who are in position to assist them. 

Every year hundreds of college students fall out of college 
because no one knows that extent of their financial need. Most 
lending agencies are not interested in mediocre or sub-standard 
college work. The best assurance that can be provided for one 
who needs help Is a good record as an individual and as a college 
student. Few. if any, funds are available for the mentally soft or 
the social outlaw. There are millions available for students who 
have plans for their development, who show that they can profit 
by a college education, and who exercise initiative to move forward 
to their chosen objectives and goals. 


87lh Coiifiressi Ailjoums 

Congress adjourned with moderate success after a long hectic 
battle between liberals, radicals, conservatives and congressional 
neutralists in an endeavor to legislate for their respective consti- 
tuents. Liberals and radicals alike tried endlessly to push President 
Kennedy's progressive measures — measures which his chief lobbyist, 
Larry O'Brien, claimed to congressional leaders were designed to 
compete with the prevailing chaos presently at hand. 

As for his success with Congress, this youth chief executive 
who was elected more so on his father's financial influence, together 
with his brother's vast popularity in Washington, than by his own 
capabilities, had little or nothing to say when questioned about the 
recent session of Congress. But it can plainly be stated that he is 
everything but complacent regarding the matter. 

Nevertheless, Democrats are cheering their success and Republi- 
cans are cheering the failures. 

In such fields as minimum wage, housing and aid for depressed 
areas, Kennedy's measures were passed with much facilitation. But 
some of the more liberalized bills passed with much more difficulty- 
Mr. Kennedy failed to get exactly what he wanted in his arbitrable 
and remote foreign aid bill. He also failed to procure medical care 
for the aged, and his highly controversial education bill was put 
off until Congress convenes next year. To the satisfaction of south- 
ern conservatives his civil rights promises were also sidetracked, 

In consequence, the past session was moderate, liberals were 
dissatisfied for lack of action and Senator Barry Goldwater and his 
cults are crying that things are still moving with too much haste. 

Washinfjtoii Should Take Drastic Action Against Kremlin 

Last month President Kennedy sent Vice President Lyndon B. 
Johnson and German hero General Lucius B. Clay to West Berlin. 
These two were sent to Berlin by the incumbent president to assure 
the Berliners that the United States government intends to stand 
firm on its vital interest in the isolated city. 

This symbolic move was also intended to boost the morale of 
the Berlin people, a people somber and melancholy and so full 
with fear of all-out war that they tend to become unconcerned 
about their own fate and destiny. These oppressed people need 
more than a morale boost, they need evidence — evidence that the 
western world will give them more than lip service, but strong 
support in time of war. A small boy may not dare defend himself 
against a fellow larger than himself, but if big brother appears 
on the scene, the smaller boy will not procrastinate for long. 

This writer is by no means in favor of war, but he does believe 
that the United States should take effective action against the 
conspirators. Negotiations with the Russians has proven time and 
time again to be futile due to each country's failure to concede to 
the other. Washington should initiate an economic blockade against 
the Russians and cease all commercial ties with the Red world. 
Commercial wise, the Communists need us more than we need them 
and furthermore, our president has bluntly asserted that Americans 
have borne burdens before and will not abandon them now, I agree 
with Mr. Kennedy on this particular point. 

kdmm Freedom For .411 follege Students 

From the Desk of the Editor 

Academic freedom has become one of the central issues of the 
times. If we forget the importance of academic freedom in an 
institution of higher learning, then our learning is in vain. The 
following paragraphs from Robert Maclver's Academic Freedom 
In Our Time will give perspective on the subject: 
"The freedom to express and 

to defend his views or his be- 
liefs, the freedom to question 
and to differ, without authorita- 
tive repression and without 
scholastic penalization, is the 
academic freedom the students 
particularly needs. 

"The academic freedom of the 
student fits admirably into the 
academic freedom of the teacher. 
In this relationship the teacher 
has properly the initiative. It is 
not for him to preach a cause or 
to expect the student to take his 
mere say-so on any matter con- 
cerning which men dispute. But 
it is for him to state his reasoned 
conclusions on matters within 
the area of his instruction. Here 
he is appealing to the student's 
own reasoning powers, and how 
can he do so effectively unless 
the student is at liberty to ques- 
tion the findings of the teacher? 
The latter should do so with re- 
spect for the teacher's greater 
experience but nonetheless with 
the readiness to follow his own 
reason wherever It leads. 

"The congeniality between the 
intellectual freedom of the 
teacher and that of the student 
appears also in the fact that any 
curtailing of the teacher's free- 
dom of thought or of expression 
reacts on the attitude of the 
students. The more thoughtful 
among them, the better students 
in other words, become uneasily 
aware that a teacher is not a free 
man and lose their respect for 
him and their trust in the hon- 
esty of his teaching. They be- 
come more skeptical, even cyni- 
cal, and are often inclined to be- 
lieve that the suppressed doc- 
trine must have virtue in it. 

"To develop his intellectual ca- 
pacities and to be truly enlisted 
in the honest search for the 
truth of things, the student must 
be free to exercise his own rea- 
soning powers in the processes 
of instruction. This primary re- 
quirement receives further im- 
petus if outside the classroom he 
is not enmeshed in an elaborate 
system of institutional controls." 


The need for good leadership 
among men has become increas- 
ingly obvious in recent years. 
The world is in need of qualified 
people to take their places as 
leaders, as guides or conductors 
to steer their people to a safe 
and profitable destiny. It is up 
to us to prepare ourselves to 
meet such a demand. 

In considering preparation for 
leadership, we are to be mindful 
of the qualities sought in a lead- 
er. The qualities which are es- 
sential for effective leadership 
are: The ability to think clearly 
and logically, the ability to ac- 
cept criticism, the feeling of 
security, and a sense of respon- 
sibility. A good leader must also 
have foresight, thoughtfulness. 
respectfulness, and above all, 
freedom from bigotry. Leader- 
ship also necessitates education. 
We must note that an educated 
person is one who is capable of 
doing the right thing at the 
right time. The qualities just 
mentioned are not usually in- 
herited, but are developed over 
a period of time by special ef- 

As the leaders of tomorrow, 
we should be mindful of our re- 
sponsibilities. The weight of the 
world is thrust upon our shoul- 
ders because we are college men 
and women and the masses look 
to us to assume the mantle of 

We should face life's problems 
just as George Washington Car- 
ver, Booker T, Washington, Ab- 
raham Lincoln. Thomas Paine, 
Ralph Bunche and the other 
great leaders have done. These 
men had the courage and the 
will power to take the helm in 
the midst of perilous situations 
and lead their people to a new 

Now it is our task and duty to 
launch out and do likewise. Are 
we willing to do our part? Are 
we willing to meet the world's 
demand for leadership and steer 
our people in the right course of 
action in order to preserve de- 



Democracy is a government by 
the people either directly or by 
elected representatives. 

Democracy is a lot of things 
both large and small. It's a hot 
dog at a baseball game, it's your 
radio, your neighbor's, and his 
neighbor's all tuned to a differ- 
ent station, yes, democracy is 
you, living from day to day un- 
der a system that recognized the 
worth and dignity of each hu- 
man being. 

Democracy is you inasmuch as 
it stands guard over you, your 
family, and your home, your 
schools, and your right to wor- 
ship when and where you please, 
as well as to speak your own 

Put yourself in this picture. 
There's a knock on your door in 
the night, your family is awak- 
ened by the noise, you go to the 
door trembling in your shoes. 
When you finally open the door 
you see two policemen standing 
there staring you in the eyes, 
they quickly push you aside and 
begin to search through every 
closet and bureau searching for 
something of which you haven't 
any knowledge. All of a sudden 
one picks up a book and says: 
A book by a foreign writer, then 
just come along with us. But of 
course this is impossible because 
behind you stands the Constitu- 
tion which states: The right of 
the people to be secure in their 
persons, houses, paper, and ef- 
fects, shall not be violated. So 
you see because of democracy 
you couldn't really be in this 
picture, could you?

The College Rage 

Sweaters, skirts, dresses, coats 
and blouses all come In a stun- 
ning and ravishing new color 
called "magenta." It is a lavish- 
ing new color between red and 
maroon, and is worn very well 
with black, white, and certain 
shades of gold. 

Girls, if you are adding a few 
clothes to your wardrobe or hav- 
ing trouble deciding on match- 
ing the colors of the ones which 
you already have — then why not 
take a few suggestions? For that 
double-breasted or four-button 
suit that will be so popular for 
the "Homecoming Game" or any 
other special occasion magenta 
is a very favorable color. For 
that leather Jacket or long coat 
that is the talk of the campus, 
and that coat sweater magenta 
Is a beautiful color and comes in 
a number of plaids. For the rab- 
bit fur sweater, mink collar, and 
that special racoon fur for suits 
and coats which can be bought 
dyed to match any color, for a 
change try magenta. 

Girls' shoes, bags, hats, gloves 
and jewelry come in magenta 
also to match that special white 
dress for concerts and banquets. 

A magenta velvet costume with 
matching hat and shoes would 
be very stunning on any young 

Yes, girls, if you are consider- 
ing colors, then think of ma- 
genta and some matching con- 
trasting colors. 

Continental Look 


It's in and it's going strong. 
Accentuated with a detachable 
belt, cuffs on the sleeves, solid 
colors as well as muted plaids 
and side vents. By the descrip- 
tion above I know that you have 
readily figured what I am speak- 
ing of. That is if you consider 
yourself to be Ivy or just up-to- 
date with the latest fashions on 
campus and elsewhere. You're 
right, it is the double-breasted 
continental suit and sportcoat in 
either the four or six-buttoned 
model. If you have noticed, the 
majority of the fellows on cam- 
pus are jumping clean in either 
one of these two models So I 
can only gather that Savannah 
State College believes in being 
up-to-date in styling as well as 
many other things. 

The latest addition to the very 
popular and colorful sweater line 
is the Big City Model sweater 
This sweater is altogether differ- 
ent and completely new. It is 
accentuated with a knitted belt 
with a leather buckle which is 
completely removable if desired. 
This sweater is a cardigan which 
buttons all the way up to the 
neck, and completes the button 
with a roll collar. It is of one 
hundred per cent virgin wool 
and comes in several of the most 
popular ivy colors: black, olive, 
navy, taupe and white, 

A must in your wardrobe 
should be plain-front trousers, 
that is, without any pleats, and 
button-down shirts in solid col- 
ors, stripes and fancies. Along 
with this, you must also have the 
most popular selection of ties, 
and of course, the majority must 
reps. As far as shoes are con- 
cerned, please have some dirty 
sneaks and cordovans in either 
plain toe or wing-tip. That's all 
for now; see you later.

A Tribute to Dag Hammarskjold 


Dag Hammarskjold was a remarkable man. As the Secretary- 
General of the United Nations, he was a bridge between East and 
West, He remained the link between East and West, in spite of 
Russia's desire to remove him from his position. 

His years as secretary-general 
will be labeled as turbulent years 
by future historians, when they 
begin to chronicle the history of 
this great organization During 
his tenure, he dealt with the 
Palestine question, the United 
States flyers held as prisoners in 
China, the Suez crisis, the revolt 
In Hungary, the problem of Leb- 
anon, the crisis In Laos, the Cu- 
ban crisis, and the fiasco in the 

In the space alloted to me. it 
would be difficult to comment on 
all of the problems encountered 
by Dag Hammarskjold as out- 
lined above, so let us look at one 
of his problems, the Congo. 

Dag Hammarskjold's difficul- 
ties stemmed from the fact that 
the United Nations was called 
upon to undertake a task for 
which the machinery did not 
exist. This task was to help 
mold a new nation, and at the 
same time, prevent the former 
colonial power, Belgium, from 
establishing a puppet state with- 
in the province of the new na- 
tion. He tried to avoid allowing 
this nation to fall victim to the 
cold war. This was to no avail, 
because East and West attempt- 
ed to create spheres of influence 
which led to civil strife and the 
death of one of Africa's brilliant 
young leaders, Patrice Lumum-

the secretary-general's adminis-

foresight, he was unable to bring

Savannah State College Player Savannah State Tops Fort 
Dies As a Result of An Injury Valley; Columbus Classics 

How i Remember Wendell Mcintosh 


This edition of Tiger's Roar is being dedicated to Wendell 
Mcintosh in memory of one of the most loved members of our 
college family. Wendell was a tackle on our football team and was 
injured during practice October 5 and because of this injury he 
passed away Friday October 13. 1981 at 5:30 a.m. 

Wendell was a graduate of Ballard-Hudson High School of 
Macon Georgia and while attending high school he never partici- 
pated in football because his parents objected. 

Mack, as called by most of his friends joined our family in 
September of '59 where he immediately began participating in 
football, and the following spring quarter he played baseball also. 

He was a junior majoring in physical education and was an 
active member of the Physical Education Club. He also was the 
president of the Lampados Club of Omega Psi Phi fraternity and 
one of his main goals was to become a member of this fraternity. 

It is really touching to the college family, because he never got 
the chance to participate in a single game this year. 

Mack was a fellow who was good humored, I can't remember 
one time that I saw him angry with anyone. 

Personally, I think Mack was 'one of the finest fellows in all 
respects that I have ever met. To me a dear friend has been lost 
and to "Savannah State College" a great football player and an 
equally great member of our family has passed on to the great 

When a fellow risks his hfe for the college he loved and loses 
It, the only thing that can be said is that the entire community is 
at a great loss, for there is no greater love than the love of a man 
who laid down his life for his friends. 

Tigers Edged 
By Waters, 3-0 


The Savannah State Tigers lost 
its first game of the season by 
being edged by a score of 3-0 as 
the result of an 18-yard field 

SSC Tigers' predominately 
freshman squad played a score- 
less first half. The Tiger starting 
team sporting six freshmen on 
their starting team held the Wa- 
ters team at will as expected by 
many. The Tigers' defensive 
might proved too much for any 
sort of running attack, the Wa- 
ters team, unlike the Tigers, 
was dependent upon its well ex- 
perienced senior laden club, who 
last year gained recognition by 
tieing powerful conference 
cliamp Albany State. 

Moses Herring, freshman quar- 
terback, provided the only of- 
fensive thrill of the afternoon by 
breaking momentarily into the 
open only to be stopped by a lone 
Waters defender. 

The lone score of the day came 
on a field goal by Waters half- 
back Walter Jackson, who kicked 
tiie decisive three-pointer. 

Standouts for the Tigers were 
guards George Johnson, Willie 
Simmons, center Calvin Roberts, 
tackle Bernard Lewis, end Fred 
Carter, halfback Robert Saxby, 
who displayed his defensive abil- 
ity by stopping five of the Ed- 
ward Waters aerials. 

The Tigers next game will be 
next week when they play Fort

Savannah State 
Ties Morris, 0-0 

The Savannah State College 
Tigers put on a strong defensive 
show and battled the Morris Col- 
lege Hornets to 0-0 deadlock in 
a conference game played in 

The Tigers' much relied on 
passing attack was stalled all 
evening by the high gusts of 
wind and a hard charging Morris 
College line. 

The Tigers blocked two punts 
deep in Morris territory to halt 
Morris drives but the Tigers 
could never get started. On three 
different occasions, the Tigers 
penetrated deep into Morris ter- 
ritory but penalties, fumbles and 
a stout defense drove them back, 

McArthur Pratt led the Tiger 
offensive machine with 88 yards 
rushing. One run covered 55 
yards. Willie Lattimore led Mor- 
ris with 34 yards on eight carries. 

Blocked punts by Benjamin 
Spann and Fred Carter gave the 
Tigers two chances to score, but 
a total of 80 yards in penalties 
kept them bottled up. 

S.S.C. Wins 
Classic, 14-7 


The Savannah State College 
football team won the second 
annual Chattahoochee Classic by 
defeating Fort Valley State Col- 
lege by a score of 14-7, The game 
was held in Memorial Stadium 
in Columbus, Georgia and was 
witnessed by some 5.000 specta- 
tors in somewhat chilly weather. 
The win was the Tigers first in 
two contests this season. 

In the first half the game ap- 
peared to be a battle of defens- 
ive teams. The half ended with 
the score deadlocked at to 0. 
Two minutes after the second 
half got under way Fort Valley 
marched from their 30 yard line 
to the 40 yard line of Savannah 
State, The next play William 
Hogan went straight up the mid- 
dle and scored for the first score 
of the game, Clifford Brown 
booted the extra point. Savan- 
nah State took the ball after re- 
ceiving the kickoff and moved 
into the Fort Valley end zone. 

Quarterback Moses Herring got 
the Savannah State attack roll- 
ing in this drive by flipping a 
25-yard pass to Thomas "Sugar" 
Williams. Herring rolled around 
end and went to pay dirt from 
the nine yard line. Pratt missed 
the conversion on an attempted 
run. The third quarter ended 
with Fort Valley leading 7 to 6, 

After the fourth quarter got 
under way Fort Valley had to 
give up the ball on downs and 
punted to Savannah State Col- 
lege, After taking the ensuing 
punt the Tigers rolled into action 
again. This time McArthur Pratt 
connected on a 35-yard pass 
play to Henry Haunders who was 
stopped on the 25-yard line, 
Fullback Freddie Myers bulled 
his way across for the winning 
touchdown. Myers then added 
the conversion with a run. Fort 
Valley attempted a pass that was 
intercepted by Freddie Myers. 
Savannah State then held the 
ball until time ran out. Out- 
standing defensively for the Ti- 
gers were Fred Carter, Calvin 
Roberts, Willie Simmons, Thom- 
as Glover, Thomas Williams, 
Robert Soxley and Tommy Da-

Basketball Squad 
Starts Drills Nov. 1 


The basketball team will begin 
its 1961-62 basketball drill on 
November 1, The squad will be 
drilling under the watchful eye 
of coach Ted Wright, who has 
had much success in guiding the 
team for the past three years. 
Over the last three-year period 
the team has won 80 games 
while losing only 12, The same 
squad will be put into action this 
year by Coach Wright that is 
responsible for this glorious rec- 
ord. The starting team will be 
composed of five seniors. These 
seniors enrolled here as fresh- 
men three years ago. Four of 
them are from the same home 
town and grew up together. The 
fifth prepped in the vicinity of 
the Big O. 

One of the main purposes for 
the success of the team has been 
a 21-year-oId lad from Chicago 
by the name of Redell Walton. 
Walton led the team in scoring 
for three consecutive years. He 
was outstanding as a freshman 
and he improved with each sea- 
son. As a freshman he averaged 
17 points per game, as a sopho- 
more 22 points per game, and 
last year he was voted an All- 
American berth while averaging 
25 points per game. He is the 
first basketball All-American In 
the history of the school, 

Walton has not by any chance 
been responsible for the entire 
success of the team. His four 
running buddies have each 
shared in the spotlight, Ira Jack- 
son has been very valuable. He 
has led the team in rebounding 
three straight years, and has 
been the number two scorer. 
Captain of the team James Dix- 
on, known as the take charge 
guy, is a very fine player. He is 
only 5' 4" but he makes up for 
it with his speed and ability to 
handle the ball. Willie Tate, a 
player who always seems to get 
better in the clutch, is very de- 
pendable. He can play the front 
court or the back court and Is 
just as effective playing either. 
Tate has been the No. 3 man on 
the squad, Steve Kelley is a very 
slick ball handler and passer. He 
is one of the most effective back 
court players around today. 
Without him the squad would be 
to a great disadvantage. 

A lot will be expected from 
Johnny Mathis (no relation to 
the famous singer i. A sophomore 
who is now an experienced play- 
er and should be ready to step 
into the collegiate ranks. 

Other returning lettermen are: 
Leon Wright, Paul Thompson, 
William Day, Raymond Harper, 
and Harvey Bailey. 

So the Tigers will be looking 
forward to a very successful sea- 
son. Come out and cheer the 
team to victory.

Christmas Concert 
in Wilcox Gym 

The annual Christmas Concert 
at Savannah State College was 
presented Sunday by the Sa- 
vannah State College Choral So- 
ciety under the direction of 
Coleridge A- Braithwaite, chair- 
man of the Department of Fine 
Arts at 6 o'clock in Wilcox Gym- 
nasium on the college campus. 
There was ample seating for 
the anticipated audience which 
looked forward to this tradi- 
tional musical event. It was 
open to everyone without charge. 

The center of attraction for 
this concert was the famous 
oratorio by George Frederic 
Handel — The Messiah, the 
Christmas portion of which was 
performed throughout the world 
during the Christmas season per- 
haps more often than any other 
musical composition in exist- 
ence. The sections heard fea- 
tured several soloists as well as 
the Choral Society. 

The soprano solists were Mar- 
garet Tilson, a freshman music 
major from Savannah, and Jua- 
nita Moon, a senior music major 
also from this city. The other 
solos were sung by Mrs. Eudora 
Moore Allen, a junior music mi- 
nor from Savannah- John Cal- 
vin Reed, a sophomore from 
Sylvania was heard for the 
first time as one of the tenor 
soloists. Another sophomore 
from Sylvania, James Weldon 
Johnson, likewise did a tenor 
solo. Joshua Walker, a sopho- 
more from Savannah, and Lau- 
ney F. Roberts Jr., a graduate 
and now a local public school 
teacher, were heard in leading 
bass solos. Rose Marie Over- 
street, a junior music major 
from Sylvania, provided a pi- 
ano accompaniment while James 
Thompson, Jr., a member of the 
Fine Arts faculty, was at the 
organ. Dr. Braithwaite con- 
ducted an augmented group 
that included members of the 
college Choral Society, Men's 
Glee Club, faculty, alumni and 
community singers. 

Staging for the performances 
were under the direction of Felix 
J. Alexis, Superiniendent of 
Buildings and Grounds, the ush- 
ers were members of the Mar- 
shal Board under the supervi- 
sion of Miss Althea Williams. 

The music heard consisted of 
the following: The Overture, 
played by Miss Overstreet and 
Mr. Thompson; The Recitative, 
Comfort Ye, sung by Mr. Reed; 
the tenor Air, Every Valley Shall 
Be Exalted, by Mr. Johnson; the 
chorus. And The Glory of The 
Lord; the bass Recitative, Thus 
Saith The Lord of Hosts, and the 
Air. But Who May Abide The 
Day of His Coming, both sung 
by Mr. Roberts; the chorus. And 
He Shall Purify; the alto Reci- 
tative, Behold, A Virgin Shall 
Conceive Sung by Mrs. Allen; the 
Alto Air and Chorus, O Thou 
That Tellest Good Tidings; the 
bass Recitative, For, Behold, 
Darkness Shall Cover The Earth, 
and the bass Air, The People 
That Walked In Darkness, both 
sung by Mr. Walker; the chorus, 
For Unto Us A Child Is Born; 
the chorus. His Yoke Is Easy; 
and the chorus. Hallelujah.

The Home Economics Club sponsored its Annual Christmas 
Bazaar Thursday, December 7, 1961 in Hammond Hall. 

Every club member was busily engaged in serving delicious 
barbecue chicken, ribs, and chitterling dinners for seated guests, and 
preparing hot fish sandwiches from Brown's Sea Food Market or 
sending out dinners for patrons who had little time to relax over 
the noon hour, 

The special note in the pastry goods was pink devil food and 
grated orange layer cakes, the velvety chocolate fudge and raisin 
drop cookies. The individual lemon and sweet potato pies are 
favorite perennials. 

The freshman students are to be highly commended for their 
over-all participation in aiding with keeping the wheels oiled for 
all phases of the operating units; the sophomores for serving din- 
ners, the juniors for handling baked good sales and take out orders 
and seniors for waiting. 

Vernita Wright took the leadership for building decoration and 
music and Anna Cooper as general manager for engineering the 
success for the entire annual. 

The Gamma Zeta Chapter of 
the Phi Beta Sigman Fraternity. 
Inc.. became an official repre- 
sentative for the Christmas

The objective of this drive is to 
provide a channel by which the 
generous, warm-hearted people 
on tlie campus may give cheer 
at Christmas time to our less 
fortunate citizens who would 

otherwise face a destitute and 
unhappy yuletlde. 

The Christmas Stocking Fund 
has the seal of approval of the

and Dr. J. L. Wilson, Director

Thanksgiving has come and gone for this year. Most of us, 
probably celebrated it in the usualy gay manner without giving 
much thought to its true meaning. 

We have now returned to our classes to complete the last few 
weeks of required study for the quarter, in jolly anticipation of 
the approaching Christmas holidays. Let us not make the same 
mistake that we made in our celebration of Thanksgiving, too 
much festivity and not enough reverence. Let us remember that 
Christmas is really the birth of Christ. It is a day that we should 
hold in high esteem above all others in the year. We should be 
thankful, especially at Christmas time, for the birth of our Savior 
and seize the opportunity to thank Him for all the blessings, too 
numerous to name, that He has bestowed upon us. 

In our gift giving, let us remember the true spirit. The wise 
men gave gifts to our Savior because it was a tradition in the 
ancient days never to approach a king without a gift. The wise 
men knew that Christ was truly a king and the gifts that they 
gave Christ were given from the depths of their hearts. 

Today, we have a different conception of gift giving than that 
of the wise men. Merchants use gift giving at Christmas time as 
an opportunity to augment their trade. Employers use gift giving 
as a means showing appreciation to their employees, but aside 
from this, they also give gifts as an inducement for more work from 
their employees. Many of us simply give gifts because others do it, 
without the true spirit of giving. When we exchange gifts, let us 
try to feel as the wise men must have felt as they gave their gifts 
to Christ. We must remember also that the greatest gift that we 
may exchange at Christmas time, or any time, is sincere reverence, 
thankfulness, forgiveness, brotherhood, and a mutual desire for 
peace and happiness among humanity, 

The writer of this article is gently trying to remind the read&r 
of the coming Christmas season and asking that we do not neglect 
to observe it's true meaning. 

After Christmas, comes the New Year. In making our resolu- 
tions, let us not forget to include more study for the next quarter 
and more cooperation and togetherness with our fellow students 
so that we may aid in making the student body of Savannah State 
College truly one to be admired.

The Verdict Is Yours 

Savannah State College is one of the few institutions of higher 
learning in the southern region with such an abundance of 

natural beauty. Persons on a tour of the city often stop to admire 
the college "where grassy plains and palms abound." 

And since the college is home to us. it seems only natural that 
we should constantly endeavor to maintain that beauty for which 
our college is noted. 

But recently it has been observed that a large number of 
students leaving chapel traverse the lawn in a mad dash to the 
dining hall instead of using the walkways provided. Even more 
Important, however, than the possible damage to the lawn is the 
indictment upon ourselves as college men and women. 

Definitely, this is not the time nor the place for retrogression. 
And while it seems that we have learned that the shortest distance 
between two points is a straight line, and that one can reach his 
destination even faster if he runs, we ought not to forget the 
amendities of life. Maturity, socially acceptable conduct, and 
appreciation for the finer things in life are intrinsic, that is, 
embodied in the concept of college men and women. 

The question is. therefore, are we or are we not college men 
and women? 

It is hoped that this article and the question posed above will 
disturb you, the student body, so that some positive action will be 
taken to stymie "lawn crossing." This is your problem. Recognize 
it^then do something about it. The verdict is yours.

Good Leadership 
Based Upon Faith 

By Roscoe Edwards, Jr. 
Freshman Editor 

What is leadership actually 
based on? 

Leadership is mainly based 
upon four faiths. 

The first, "Faith in God" upon 
which rest all worthy accom- 
plishments of our civilization. 
Leaders who base their beliefs 
and purposes upon faith in God 
have survived the efforts of ty- 
rants and dictators. They have

Secondly, good leadership de- 
pends upon the "Faith in our- 
selves." The well known adage 
■■As a man thinketh in his heart. 
so is he." brings to light the 
great quality of ambition. If 
one thinks that he has the abil- 
ity and potentiality to lead, to 
organize and to control situa- 
tions, he will prove his worth 
with all energies and talents. He 
will develop abilities that will 
take care of life and which will 
prove essential to the preserva- 
tion of human rights and per- 
sonal liberties. 

Our forefathers possessed 
"Faith In their Fellowmen." 
when they designed the Consti- 
tution. As leaders we too must 
have faith in each other. We 
must trust one another to do the 
things that will promote a good 
life, liberty and the pursuit of 
happiness. Truly the faith of 
our pioneering ancestors was 
also a living and vital force of 
"Faith in Freedom." Good lead- 
ership must be founded upon :i 
belief that there Is a freedom u> 
maintain. Leaders must comfort 
their followers in order to fortify 
the cause of freedom. 

The one big quality of leader- 
ship is that of accepting respon- 
sibilities. For there Is no leader- 
ship without sincerity, courage, 
and enthusiasm. 

Savanunh^s Tennis 
Courts Are Opened 

City-owned tennis courts have 
been added to a mounting list 
of desegregated facilities here, 
it was disclosed Friday. Several 
Negroes already have played 
without incident on the courts 
at city-owned Daffin Park, When 
Negroes ask to play on the 
courts, they will not be turned 
aside, said Herbert Griffin, Sr,, 
chairman of the City Recreation 
Board. A. C, Smith, attendant at 
the courts, said officials notified 
him several days ago to start 
permitting Negroes to play on 
the previously all-white courts. 

Savannah also has desegre- 
gated lunch counters, city buses, 
the public library and the muni- 
cipal golf courses. 


Democracy: Declining or Ascending? 

Is Democracy declining or ascending? This is a question that 
is pondering in the minds of practical-thinking people everywhere, 
where freedom of speech, religion, thought, association, and any 
other type of freedom that is so dear to the inhabitants of the 
non-Communist countries. 

This reporter often contemplates this serious question. Many 
people wonder why an individual dares to ask such a question, 
when seemingly democracy is on a rapid upward movement. These 
-complacent people are apt to be contented with our so-called 
democracy and disillusioned by the many advances made in our 
society in recent years. In America, which is the undisputed leader 
of the non-Communist world, we have our first Catholic president, 
(whether tiiat's good or bad), a Negro cabinet member, and a 
Jewish cabinet member. These radical moves are unprecedented 
in American history, and one New Frontiersman even went as far 
as to predict a Negro to the presidency by the twenty-first century, 
I must say that I am not as optimistic. Radical moves like the 
former and statements as the latter tend to bring about com- 
placency in the best of us. There are too few Americans who 
realize that we do not have a democracy, we have a model, and 
that model is not good enough. It is especially not good enough 
for us to propagandarize our ideologies to the new and under- 
developed countries. 

In a perfect democracy an individual could and would not be 
fired, rehired, and then severely reprimanded for taking an active 
part against the evils of his community and nation. 

We live in a society where a president reigns, who received 
less popular votes than his opponent — yet in our so-called 
democracy the majority Is supposed to prevail. While Mr. Kennedy 
is in office the majority of the people will suffer while he jams 
his extremely radical measures down our throats. In a true 
democracy a woman black or white, would be able to seek a local 
civic position without unfair tactics by her opponents to beat her. 

In a true democratic society, a general would not be ostracized 
by his country's legislature for informing his subordinates of the 
evils of communism. 

What's your opinion, sir?

Men's Fashions 

By Charlie Phillips 


This year even more than last, 
tiie 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- 

riiing!- to Come 

The shape of things to come 
will change a bit. but only the 
perceptive eye will notice. Hap- 
pily, 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 win 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 
in both leathers and fabrics. But 
the biggest news is the trium- 
phant revival of stripes; candy 
-f lipes, boater stripes, awning 
.tnpes. 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

In contemporary society, col- 
lege students are becoming 
aware more than ever of synco- 
pated jazz music, which Is a 
consequence of the ingenuity, 
versatility and improvisation of 
present day jazzmen. 

Admirers of modern jazz, and '' 
its fanatics (beatniks) are deeply 
indebted to the pioneers of 
modern jazz, Charlie Parker, 
Dizzy Gillespie and the volatile 
Thelonius Monk. These men 
mere noncomplacent during the 
be-bop era and consequently 
they rebelled in wrath against 
the jazz music of the early for- 
ties. By way of their instruments 
this triumvirate created a revo- i 
lutlon in music. Many jazz 
critics believe that Morxk alone 
initiated the revolt because of 
his tendency to deviate from the 
favorite music of the pre-war 
years. Dixieland, and many peo- 
ple feel that he is still deviating, 
due to his absolute and complex 
style. I believe that Monk, with 
the exception of Miles Davis, is 
the most disliked and least un- 
derstood man in jazz today. 

I have no special predilection 
from Monk^s music, because I 
feel that he is more of a com- 
poser than a musician, but when 
one contemplates the idea, one 
can't help but admire the man 
for his endeavors. For to be a 
deviate or to conform against 
the prevailing elements of music 
and still be accepted is some- 
thing many musicians may never 

In 1956 death claimed the 
"Bird" Charlie Parker and it was 
felt throughout the jazz world 
that no one would ever fill the 
shoes left vacant by this immor- 
tal genius. But a few years later 
a young man by the name of 
John Coltrane was given the 
chance by Miles and Monk re- 
spectively to play in their 
combos. Subsequently Coltrane 
played with so much reverence 
and vitality that he is now by 
far the most acclaimed jazzman 
today, and the recipient of the 
accolade once bestowed only to 

Coltrane may never fill Bird's 
shoes to capacity but he will un- 
doubtedly wear the larger por- 
tion for a long time to come. 

Indeed John Coltrane has per- 
petuated his way in a field that 
is as difficult as Japanese trigo- 
nometry, and his is definitely 
here to stay.

At the recent December faculty meeting, the faculty of Savannah State 
College voted unanimously to extend commendation to President William K. 
Payne for his leadership in obtaining accreditation of the college by the 
Southern Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges. Reverend A. E. 
Peacock. College Minister, presented the citation which stated: 

"The acceptance of Savannah State College into full membership in the 
Southern Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges on December 7, 
1961, is noteworthy and historic. For the first time in the history of the 
College, it has been accepted into the circle of academic institutions on the 
basis of criteria applicable to all institutions in this region. 

"This coveted recognition brings distinct honor not only to the faculty, 

students, and alumni of Savannah State College, but also to the Savannah 
community, to the stale of Georgia and to the Soulheast. 

"Recognizing the significant role that your academic foresight, your 
inspired and inspiring leadership, and your educational statesmanship 
played in our achieving this coveted honor, we, the faculty, wish to express 
our profound appreciation to you and pledge our continued support in the 
years ahead. We promise our sincere and concerted efforts in maintaining 
and fulfilling ideals and responsibilities inherent in membershi|). 

"With you at the helm of this ship of learning, the Dean and other 
administrative officers as your mates, and the faculty as crew members, 
we feel that we can sail with assurance through seas unchartered to realms 
of teaching and learning yet undiscovered."

Savannah State College 

By James Brown, Jr. 

The basketball team has begun it5 rugged 1961-62 basketball 
season. The squad is under the management of Coach Ted Wright, 
who has had much success in guiding the same starting five for 
the past three years. Over the last three-year period, the team 
has won 80 games while losing only 12; this includes winning nine 
championships. The same five will be the work horses of the sea- 
siders this year. 

Redell iMoose) Walton, one of the starting five, is the first 
basketball player In the history of the school to berth All-American, 
Redell is a 21-year-old lad from Chicago. He averaged 25 points 
per game last season. 

However. Walton is only one of the magnificent five. Ira 
Jackson, the big 6' 3" center, was the S.E.A.C. Conference's most 
valuable basketball player last year. He has led the team in 
rebounding three consecutive years. Captain James Dixon, only 
5' 4" is the little general of the squad and he makes up for his 
lieight with his fine performances. Willie Tate is the player who 
always seems to be the man to shoot the big points when they are 
needed- Tate possesses one of the finest jump shots of any college 
player. Steve Kelly, the ball handier of the team is undoubtedly 
i^me of the finest ball handlers in any college. 

A lot will be expected from Johnny Mathis, Leon Wright, Paul 
Thompson, Raymond Harper and Harvey Bailey this season. 

The Tigers are expected to go all the way this year, so come 
out and cheer the team to Victory!

With the holiday season approaching, you'll be dresshig formally 
with increasing frequency, Let's review what's new and correct 
in campus formal wear so you'll be at ease and in fashion at fra- 
ternity and sorority dances and at the many gala parties ahead. 

YOUR JACKET'S A NATURAL ... The correct 

and smart silhouette for campus formal wear 
is the natural .shoidder, single breasted dinner 
jacket with black satin shaicl collar. The high 
fashion peak lapel model is also being worn by 
some tmderpraduates. 

FABRICS ARE LIGHT.., Lightweight formal 
\vear makes sense in any season. The heavy 
weight, old fashioned "tux" made formal eve- 
nings a chore rather than a pleasure. A few 
hours spent dancing in stuffy, overcrowded, 
overheated ballrooms was enough to take the 
starch out of the hardiest college man. Modern, 
light -weight fabrics have changed all that. 
Dinner jackets are comfortable and going for- 
mal is fun. This season's favored formal fabrics 
will be dull finish tropical worsteds and dacron/ 
rayon blends, 

GO VEST, YOUNG MAN . . . just as vests 

h ive made a comeback in suits, and with 
sport jackets and shicks, you'll see more 
■vests with formal attire. An elegant vest 
in matching or fancy fabric is just the 
added touch to boost your rating along 
sorority row. Pictured is the single 
bieasted shawl collar vest in black with 
satin lapels and three buttons: it's made 
of dacron and acetate, v 


MATCHING TIE are the smart formal 
wear accessories that will make you a 
standout on the stag line. Your dress 
shirt is either pleated bosom or plain 
front. Shirt studs are usually black pearl 
with cufF links to match. 

FORMAL FOOTWEAR . . . whether your 
forte is the Pachanga, Charanga, Cha Cha 
Cha or trusty Fox Trot, you should keep 
in .step with black patent leather in either 
plain tip or slip on model. Highly polished 
calf skin shoes are a smart alternate. 
Plain black or midnight blue are the cor- 
rect colors in formal wear hose. 

LET'S GET AWAY FROM IT ALL . . . Holiday formal wear at re- 
sorts is white and/or bright. The white ivash and wear dinner 
jacket in blends of rayon and acetate or dacron and rayon is smart 
and practical. Styling is in the shawl collar. You can also make a 
colorful vacation splash in plaid cotton or batik dinner jackets.

SSC Places Three 
On AU-Conferenee 
Football Team 

Three of the Tigers "mighty 
eleven" were named All-Confer- 
ence football players for the 
1961 football season. The three 
are Henry Saunders, Fred Mey- 
ers and Benjamin Spann. 

Henry Saunders is a big 6' 2" 
end who came to us from Tomp- 
kins High School, in Savannah, 
Ga. Saunders played a large 
part in the Tigers attempt to 
receive respectability In its con- 
ference. Henry was noted for his 
outstanding offensive and de- 
fensive abilities, 

Fred Meyers, 5' 7", 188 pounds, 
is a graduate from Robert Smalls 
High School in Beaufort, S. C, 
Pred was undobutedly the best 
fullback in the conference. He 
possesses four traits you find 
rare in one man. That is. he is 
big, powerful, fast and tricky. He 
was one of the Tigers' top 
ground gainers, 

Benjamin Spann, made the 
second team, but is regarded as 
one of the roughest lineman in 
the conference. Benjamin is a 
graduate of the Ballard-Hudson 
High School in Macon. Ga. 
Spann is probably considered the 
most versatile lineman on the 
Tiger squad. 

The S. S, C. family is proud 
for her All-Conference football 
players. Congratulations! 

Poll Reveals Students Would 
Patronize Integrated Theaters 

I 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 
11879) at the University would 
continue to patronize local 
theaters if they were open to 
persons of all races. 

The poll, conducted by a vol- 
unteer student group, was in- 
tended to find out if claims of 
theater owners that their busi- 
ness would fail off if they were 
to integrate were valid. 

Students in each living unit 
were given a questionnaire, the 
completion of which was op- 

Of the 1879 returned forms, 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 indi- 
cation that theater seats are 
'■growing cold under the present 
segregated arrangement" the 
recent practice of offering free 
showings to fraternity and soror- 
ity groups during prime evening 
hours at the Carolina Theater.

The 1962 Annual Press Institute continues a program which 
has been considered an important part of our educational offerings 
for many years. The participants and distinguished consultants 
always find the experiences new and challenging. Much of our 
education today and in the future wiU be influenced by those who 
read and write and use the various media of communication. 

Savannah State College is glad to welcome all who will partici- 
pate In the programs. The values to be derived will be both 
immediate and delayed. They will be as diverse and varied as the 
personalities who participate, but they can contribute to our growth 
and understanding. It is through enlightenment of the many that 
we can move towards our cherished goals. The opportunities to 
share the experiences of the press Institute are rare and filled with 
potentialities for good citizenship, — Dr, William K. Payne 

$1,000,000 for Duke 

DURHAM. N. C, (I.P,t— The 
Duke Endowment, the nation's 
third largest private philanthro- 
pic foundation, has announced 
that it is taking immediate 
steps— via a $1 million special 
grant to Duke University — "to 
attack a prime problem of the 
nation's higher education." 

This problem was described as 
"the 'regional differential' which 
keeps faculty salaries in the 
South substantially below those 
of comparable institutions else- 
where, and endangers the whole 
future of Southern universities 
and colleges." 

Expressing the hope that Us 
action would be "forerunner of 
similar action by all organiza- 
tions and Individuals interested 
in financial support of Southern 
universities and colleges," the 
endowment annuonced that its 
trustees had voted to Duke the 
special gift of SI million — which 
is to be matched by another $1 
million to be raised by the uni- 
versity itself- The entire S2 mil- 
lion is to be devoted exclusively 
to raising faculty salaries over 
a two-year period. 

Wisconsin College 
Re-Examines Methods 

ASHLAND, Wis, i I.P. ) — In- 
creased college enrollment is 
causing educators to re-examine 
their philosophies and their 
methods, in search of the un- 
used potential that can help 
them meet this challenge. Dur- 
ing last year's faculty planning 
conference. Dean Jesse Caskey 
of Northland College suggested 
that this potential might be 
within the student — that the 
educator's greatest unexplored 
resource might be the student's 
ability to learn by himself. 

The Northland faculty found 
these areas of agreement: 

1. The freshman's ability to 
pursue his education under a 
loose rein varies — generally, 
from fair to poor. 

2. Unless the student has 
learned to pursue his education 
independently by the time of 
his graduation, college has been 
for him a miserable failure. 

3. The student will develop 
fully his inherent capacity for 
self-education only if it is ex- 
pected of him.

A Stiideut^s Vieiv of Life 

By Freida M. Brewton 

Life is a ball game. Each day is an inning. Each day we stand 
at bat with the world at large pitching to us. Sometimes we will 
score a home run; at other times we might not get farther than 
first base, maybe second; yet, there may be days full of errors — no 
score at ail- This ball game continues until one day the Umpire, 
our heavenly Father, calls out, "It is finished, the game is over!" 

The spectators here on earth watch. They keep our scores. 
Some of the spectators are friendly, others are hostile; such is the 
case in any game We are not to be disturbed by the scores the 
spectators are keeping, because we must realize that the official 
score is recorded by our heavenly Umpire. Only He can truthfully 
say how many errors we have made, innings we have had. or how 
many home runs we have hit. 

In this ball game of life, victory is our ultimate goal- Each 
time we stand at bat we must be careful to play the game fairly 
because the Umpire is watching at all times, and when we play the 
game unfairly. He calls a strike against us. If we work diligently 
at winning this ball game of life and are mindful not to cheat in 
any way, we can rest assured that some day, in the final analysis, 
victory will be our reward. 

A Maivs Lot Is a Tough One 

(ACPi— Who gets the short end of the stick when it comes to 

The man, of course, says Del Faddis, writing In the Daily 
Universe, Brigham Young University. 

Just consider this ritual he describes: 

"Man usually makes a few preparations before going out on 
a date. 

"One of these is a process in which he cuts away the hair 
growing out of his face. He then applies a solution to his face. 
This solutions keeps his face from getting sore — if he hasn't already 
cut it. The main purpose for using this solution, however, is the 
pleasing odor it has. 

"After all preparations have been made and he is dressed in 
what is considered the latest style, he drives all the way across 
town to pick up his date, when it would be much easier to meet 
her at some convenient midpoint. 

"He has to find a parking place to go to the door to get her. 
(This way if it's raining both get wet.) 

"He waits while she finishes dressing, he helps her on with 
her coat, he helps her with the door, he helps her across the street, 
and he helps her into the car. All this he does as though she weren't 

able to do it for herself- 

"They then drive back downtown (what a waste of gas and tire 
tread). They stop at the theater where the fellow stops the car, 
gets out, runs around to the girl's side to open the door, helps the 
girl out of the car, finds a spot for her to wait while he runs back 
to the car. drives it to a parking place and then runs back to the 

"He then stands in line to buy the tickets when she could have 
been doing that while she was waiting. He pays for both of them. 

"Once in the theater lobby he buys her some refreshments. 
leads her to a seat and helps her off with her coat. 

"After the movies he walks back to get the car. and then drives 
back to his date where he gets out and helps her get in the car. 
It is customary that he ask her if she would care for something to 
eat and if she says yes. the same courtesies at the restaurant as 
the theater. 

"After they have eaten and he has paid the check, he usually 
drives her straight home. When they get to the door of her home, 
he takes her key and struggles to open the door for her. 

"He then turns to her and asks if he may have the privilege 
of doing it again sometimes. 
"Ah yes, it's a man's world."

Omega Psi Phi 

25 Strong 


By Ralph Lowe 

As a result of Novemtier's line 
of probates, eleven Brothers have 
entered into the realm of Ome- 
gadom by way of Alpha Gamma 
chapter of Omega Psi Phi Frat- 
ernity. The initiation of these 
brothers has made the chapter 
twenty-five strong. 

These neophyte brothers are 
Willie Adkins of Ludowici, Har- 
vey Bryant of Woodbine, James 
Coar of Columbus, Alex Haber- 
sham of Macon, Christopher

to sponsor the following activi- 
ties; an All-College Assembly, 
our annual Talent Hunt Pro- 
gram which is to be presented 
jointly with Mu Phi chapter in 
the city and last but not least, 
our annual Mardi Gras. We are 
doing our utmost in the line of 
preparation in order that these 
events will be vast improvements 
over those presented in the past.

proud to announce that we have 
been represented well by Helen 
Woods, a soror of Delta Sigma

Sftvaiinah Staters Wonder Boy 

By Therman Thomas 

For the past four basketball seasons, Redell iMoose) Walton 
has led his team in scoring and has ranked second In rebounding. 
During the 1960-61 season the mild-mannered and somewhat shy 
Walton averaged 25 points per game. 

In 1960 he established a one-game record by shooting a total 
of 39 points against the Benedict College team. The four-year 
letterman is deadly from all points on the court, "Moose" plays 
both front court and back court exceptionally well. For the past 
three years, he has been selected ^or the Southeastern Athletic 
Conference's All-Conference team. 

Through outstanding feats in tournament play, he was also 
selected the most valuable player In the 1960-61 NAIA District 6 
Tourney. Last year "Moose" captured the Most Valuable Player 
title in the Pelican State Tourney over NAIA All-American elect, 
Charles Harnett of Grambling College. 

When asked why lie came to Savannah State College, he stated 
that it was mostly through the efforts of a former student at the 
College whose name is Bobby Brown (now teaching in Chicago). 
Redell has no definite future plans as yet; however, he will probably 
settle for professional basketball or coaching. 

In his spare time, Walton does a lot of reading, writing and 
listening to jazz albums. Most of his time is spent with co-ed 
Gwendolyn Smith, an ardent basketball fan.

(ACP) —Wanted: One coed,

A pleading letter was carried

The need for good leadership 
among men has become Increas- 
ingly obvious In recent years. 
The world Is In need of qualified 
people to take their places as 
leaders, as guides or conductors 
to steer their people to a safe 
and profitable destiny. It Is up 
to us to prepare ourselves to 
meet such a demand, 

In considering preparation for 
leadership, we are to be mindful 
of the qualities sought In a lead- 
er. The qualities which are es- 
sential for effective leadership 
are: The ability to think clearly 
and logically, the ability to ac- 
cept criticism, the feeling of 
security, and a sense of respon- 
sibility. A good leader must also 
have foresight, thoughtfulness, 
respectfulness, and above all, 
freedom from bigotry. Leader- 
ship also necessitates education. 
We must note that an educated 
person is one who Is capable of 
doing the right thing at the 
right time. The qualities just 
mentioned are not usually In- 
herited, but are developed over 
a period of time by special ef- 

As the leaders of tomorrow,

Say ! It's wild, it's big. It's 
swinging, and It's what's hap- 
pening! It's "The Twist," the 
new dance craze, and all the 
credit is being given to the one 
and only Chubby Checker, 

This new dance craze has 
taken a stand not only with the 
teenagers in high schools and 
colleges, but also with the aris- 
tocrats in the swank night 
clubs, especially the Peppermint 
Lounge in New York where the 
"Peppermint Twist" originated. 

It has been estimated that 
Chubby Checker will make well 
over one million dollars from the 
sale of articles with his name 
and picture on them. Shirts, 
shoes, trousers, and suits called 
the "Twisters" are already on 
the market. 

Oh. yeah! "The Twist" is what 
it is, and you can twist better II 
you sand-paper the soles of your 
shoes. That's right, try it! 

Pictured above with Ira Jackson, popular basketball player and 
ideal gentleman, are Sherbie Best, Laordice Winfrey, Dawn Hol- 
linshead. and Lois Carson. These young ladies are known as the 
"Magnificent Four" and are members of the Ira Jackson Fan Club. 

Patridge Wolfe, Grand Basileus of the Sorority, was the featured 
speaker at a public program. Mrs, Ella W, Fisher, member of the 
Savannah State College faculty, is Regional Director of the South-

of this great institution can do much to make 1962 a banner year. 
It is our duty to strive and reach for the best possible results.

This Fall's fashion note in campus sportswear is one of bright, 
fresh approaches to traditional stylings. You'll find smart looking 

sportswear in a wide range of colors, fabrics and styles suitable 
for classrooms, campus and for casual dates. Here's a rundown on 
some of the newest and newsier items in casual campus attire. . .

flecks of green, olive and yellow and buttoned in 

A BLAZING TWOSOME... this .tnki„g duo

New camel's hair jackets are tailored with 
natural shoulders, straight-hanging lines,

smart and luxurious looking, in the na-

Beautiful You and Black 

Black has just been hailed as the color of the year on the 
Savannah State College campus and is being worn by everyone. 
Black is a very conservative color and can be worn by everyone for 
any occasion — class, church, banquets, formals, and for sportswear. 

For you figure-conscious girls who can't wear certain colors, 
and who feel ill-at-ease in certain colors, forget your problems 
because I have the color of the year for you— Black. 

For class, a black box pleated skirt and black slipover sweater 
accented by a white collar, or a one-string pearl necklace is very 
charming on any young lady, regardless of size. 

For church, let's try a black two-piece dress or suit with burnt 
orange or beige accessories. And the black sheath dress with 
spaghetti strings across the shoulder is just the attire for the 
"Sweetheart's Bail" or for that all important banquet. 

No one, but no one, would be without some type of black coat 
in her wardrobe, such as a black leather jacket, the all popular 
double-breasted long coat with large collar and pockets. Don't 
forget the black suede leather long coat and jacket, For evening 
wear let's consider a black velveteen lined in white fur. 

Young ladies, please don't forget those black leather gloves. 

Let's wear more black and less flash, and you will be very 
beautiful In black.

Importance of the 
College Newspaper 

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 
docs not only represent the col- 
lege in the outside world, but it 
also serves ;ks 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 cominunica- 
tio non campus. It is a publica- 
tion by wlilch the students may 
speak or voice their conceptions 
through editorials, feature 
stores, poems, etc. This also 
raises the question of freedom 
of the student publication versus 
control. The college newspaper 
represents the students and 
gives thcni 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__collcge news- 
paper holds the major spotlight 
of student expression in college

Honor Society which was held on 
the beautiful campus of Florida 
A&M University. March 22-24, 

When the honor roll was 

announced. Alpha Nu Chapter 
was listed with "Highest Dis-

tinction status goes to those 
..■hapters which have promptly 
I'omplied with the requirements 
set up by the national office- 
Alpha Nu Chapter has received 
this distinction for the past five 

In addition, Dr. E. K. Williams

1962 Honor Roll, also with high- 
est distinction status. This is 
the first time that this feat has 
been accomplished by a regional 

As regional director. Dr. Wil- 
hams serves as co-ordinator for 
the ten colleges that comprise 
region V, 

The Executive Council, to 
which Elmore was elected, is 
responsible for carrying forward 
the activities of the society in 
the interim between conven- 
tions. The council outlines the 
program for the coming year's 
meeting, makes recommenda- 
'ions for convention speakers 
:ind subsequently selects them. 

The theme for the 1962 con- 
'"ention was "Scholars as Future 
Leaders." It was expounded 
ipon by the four speakers who 
-iddressed the delegates and 
later was used as the topic for 
\ student symposium. The topic 
was carefully analyzed by the 
nanel and many provocative 
luestions were posed. Among the 
;iiore interesting questions dis- 
ussed was, "Can a person be a 
■cholar and a leader?" 

There were delegates from 
39 colleges and universities 
throughout the United States. 
All of the student delegates en- 
joyed a rich program of activi- 
fies that included inspiring ad- 
dresses, a reception given by

SSC Collects Books 
For Nigeria 

Savannah State College is now 
in the process of collecting books 
for a secondary school library in 
Laos, Nigeria. 

This project, which is spear- 
headed by the student council, 
began after a letter was received 
from Mrs. Maye Grant, an Amer- 
ican Negro teaching in Nigeria. 
Mrs. Grant wrote that there 
were thousands of Nigerian 
youth who were hungry for edu- 
cation, but that there was a 
great shortage of books in the 
school's library- 
Pledgees of the four fraterni- 
ties on campus have undertaken 
this book - collecting project. 
They are now in the process of 
knocking on doors in the com- 
munity, their way of trying to 
further the cause of education 
in the underdeveloped countries 
of the world.

about you. and It is Incriminating, 

More than a third of the dormitory students, after leaving 
chapel, trample the lawn in a mad dash for the dining hall instead 
of using the walkways provided. Now this is a serious indictment 
upon ourselves as college men and women and it demands our 
attention. This is not the time nor the place for retrogression! Let's 
stop this foolishness!

are we to know? 

Without the benefit of supernatural powers, we can not produce

If you do not care about the fate of your college paper, then

With Easter vacation already flashing the "•Walk" sign, why not 
decide before you go home on your number one suit and the rest of 
your wardrobe. Aside from the traditional dress-up holiday, there 
may be decisive interviews for either a summer job or a permanent 
one if you're a graduating senior — and the clothes you wear — plus 
the way that you wear them — make the pivotal first impression. 
You want it to be right at first sight, so, let's take a run-down on 
what you might well select this Spring in fashion. 


weather is next to weightless in the new lighter- 
than-ever flannels and polyester/wool blends. 
Color-wise, consider the more definite blues, the 
neiv lighter greys ; see the classic Glen Urquhart 
or 'glen' plaids. 

THE GIFT OF 'GAB' you get with the return of 
natural tan gabariliuc. Its fine diagonal twill 
weave and surface sheen make it an excellent 
choice for your Number One Suit. Today's gab- 
ardines also come in lighter weight wools and 
new polyester/wool blends. 

STILL THE FAVORED SILHOUETTE u. the Natural shoulder three- 

biittuii, .■^trait'ht-hjiiigint' jacket with center vent and flap pockets. 
The First Executive Look, epitomized by President Kennedy, may 
be Two-Eutton ...but the Campus Look, coast to coast, remains 
devotedly Three-Button with slim, pleatless trousers ivitli cuffs. 


STRIPES ... the resurgence noted by ESQUIRE 
ast fall is gaining momentum for Regimental 
Stripes— the traditional colors of the historic 
British regiments. With scores of these famed 
regiments — like the Grenadier Guards, the 
Royal Fusiliers, the Inskilling Dragoons — 
there's quite a roll-call of striking color com- 
binations in pure silk repps for your selection. 

DRESS SHIRTS— SHOES— BELT . . . white Button Down Oxfords 

are ^till very much de rigeur. and there are handsome variations in 
narrow tape stripes of blue, grey, olive. Also, although you 'can't 
go wrong' with a white broadcloth tab collar dress shirt, why not 
dress up with the newest pale tones of blue, olive or cream. With 
suits in Blue or Grey, wear BLACK SHOES or the VERY DARK- 
EST BROWNS . . . and RIB SOCKS are always smart and correct. 
Your DRESS BELT is LEATHER with an important harness-type 
buckle in polished metal.

felt in brown or olive— weit edge. r;iw edge or 


front coat-sweater is tops in campus popularity, Tops in favor are 
the lofty Shetland and the open-knit Alpaca wool or wool blends in 
solid colors or stripes. 


BOUND? Should your vacation find you beached around 
Ft. Lauderdale or Bermuda, say, then sports- 
wear moves into number one spot. Here you'll 
see a lot of TIGER— the bold, tawny color that's 
getting the roar of approval from campus men 
everywhere. They pick it up in sportshirts like 
this, sweaters, ties, socks. Find it in sharp, solid 
tones or mixed — for example, a houndstooth 
sportcoat checked in Black and Tirer . . . and let 
them see you "burning briglit" in fashion.

Nothing irks the hard-pressed college student more than shaking

The professor who comes in 15 minutes late is rare — in fact, he's

The college basketball coaches are all interested in higher edu-

senior English major, is a mem- 
ber of Delta Sigma Theta So- 
rorita, the Boar's Head Club and 
the College Playhouse, She en- 
joys reading, listening to instru- 
mental recordings and traveling. 

When asked if she had a phi- 
losophy of life, Emma answered, 
"Yes, but I don't think it works 
so well all the time,'* She added, 
however, that in spite of this, 
she still believes in it. The phi- 
losophy: "Do unto others as you 
would have them do unto you," 

"Certainly, I would add an- 
other girl's dormitory— and pro- 
vide more recreational facilities 
for the dormitory students." 
This is how Emma would change 
the campus if she could. As far 
as changing the world is con-

"better human relationships," 
As far as her own life is con-

Greeks Present 
Rush Parties 

If you are not Greek, then 
there is a fifty-to-fifty chance 
that your feet are sore, and your 
tongue hangs out yet. Diagnosis: 
"Man, you've been rushed!" 

During the week of March 26- 
30 the Greek Letter Organiza- 
tions at Savannah State College 
have been eagerly "selling their 
wares." Actually, rushing is a 
type of politiking which has be- 
come standard practice on most 
campi, and in certain cases, 
the organizations vie with each 
other for particular students. 

More important, however, 
pledgees help to keep the or- 
ganizations "alive," They fill 
the vacancies made by with- 
drawals and transfers, inactivity 
and graduation. 

This year the rush parties or 
programs, as the case may be. 
were most impressive. 

Alpha Phi Alpha and Alpha 

Kappa Alpha Iield a joint rush 
party and served cake squares 
which displayed the insignia and 
colors of the sorority and fra- 

Amega Psi Phi presented "A 
Night in Birdland." It was a 

simply dreamy evening, en- 
chanted by candle light. 

Delta Sigma Theta geared its 
program to travel "Around the 
World, With a cry of "ship 
Ahoy," the sail was set for Lon- 
don, Paris, and points East. 

The college, without a doubt. 
always profits from high-quality 
programs such as these. We look 
forward to more of the same 
next year.

Skip Class 
And Pass 

Toledo, O, (LP.)— A new rule 
in effect for the current aca- 
demic year at the University of 
Toledo has repealed the instruc- 
tor's right to drop students for 
excessive absences. Part of a 
recommendation of the Confer- 
ence Committee, the responsi- 
bility for dropping a course has 
shifted from the instructor to 
the student. 

Under the new system, a stu- 
dent wishing to drop a course 
must initiate the drop himself 
by first contacting his dean and 
then filling out a form in the 
registrar's office. The reasons 
for the new rule as stated by 
the Conference Committee are 
as follows: 

Dropping students for non- 
attendance IS inconsistant with 
the adoption in 1959 of the vol- 
untary roll taking. 

Since the student has paid his 
tuition he should be permitted 
to exercise his right to attend or 
not attend classes. 

If the student feels that he 
can pass a course without at- 
tending classes, he should be 
permitted to do so. 

Grades in a particular course 
should not be based upon the 
physical presence of a student. 

This new rule is intended to 
cover only excessive absences 
from class, A student may still 
be dropped from a course by the 
instructor as a disciplinary ac- 
tion, according to Richard R. 
Perry, director of admissions and

Chemistry Dept. 
In Research on 
Cotton Seed 

By Frcida M, Brewton 

The Department of Chemistry, 
headed by Dr. Charles Pratt, is 
presently engaged In research on 
the cotton seed. The researchers 
are studying the pigment com- 
ponents which give cotton seed 
oil Its color. Gossypol, one pig- 
ment found in cotton seed, Is 
responsible, at least in part, for 
the color of the oil. 

The first Chemistry Seminar, 
which Is an outgrowth of this 
project, was held Thursday 
night, March 29, In the Tech- 
nical Science Building. Idella 
Glover spoke on the topic. 
"Quantitated Method for the 
Gossypol Analysis of Cotton 
Seed." The purposes of these 
seminars are to acquaint other 
majors in the Department with 
what each student <who is em- 
ployed as a researcher) Is trying 
to do, and to increase their 
knowledge of chemistry by 
means other than classroom in- 

The department Is also pro- 
posing additional requirements 
for graduation, some of which 
are: Hi that each senior pass an 
oral comprehensive on each 
phase of chemistry that he has 
taken, and (2) that each senior 
must do a research investigation 
which will add to the present 
stockpile of knowledge and be 
of a quality publishable in a 
scientific journal. A chemistry 
major may begin his research as 
early as he chooses. 

Some individual senior pro- 
jects underway now involve a 
study of sugars extracted from 
natural sources such as pine 

needles and Spanish moss. 

Several useful Instruments 
have been added to the depart- 
ment which have been helpful 
in the study of the cotton 
seed. These instruments are: the 
Spectrophotometer, Polarimeter. 
Zeromatic PH meter, melting 
point block, and flash evapora- 

Importance of the 

College Newspaper 

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 

ln.strument 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 
college newspaper gives self- 
expressions 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 

Always Finish 

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.

Debating Ttam 

Next Topic 

By Berneice Pinkney 

Resolved: that the county unit 
system should be abolished. 

This declaration, stated in 
both the affirmative and the 
negative, has become a virtual 
political basketball since the 
United States Supreme Court 
handed down its recent decision- 
Repercussions are being felt over 
a wide area and particularly in 
the South. 

Because of its significance to 
us as voters affected by the 
county unit system, and its con- 
troversial nature, the Savannah 
State College Debating Team 
has chosen this as the topic for 
its next debate. 

At present, it seems as if that 
fearful twosome. Bobby Hill and 
James Brown, will debe.te the af- 
firmative. The negative, as of 
yet. has not announced who will 
oppose them. Being fought on 
home grounds and before fellow 
students, both sides are deter- 
mind to make it a fight to the 
bitter end. To say that it prom- 
ises to be exciting is an under- 

The time and place of the de- 
bate will be announced later.

basketball season will mark the 
end of college basketball careers 
for eight seniors who have won 
the hearts and respect of all 
basketball fans in and out of our 
college communliy. 

The Tigers, a well rounded 
group of athletes and gentlemen 
have built up a record on the 
hardwood that will stand for 
some years i;o come. Over the 
past four seasons, the Tigers 
have had a total of 106 games 
while suffering only 18 setbacks. 
They won their conference visi- 
tations and tournament crowns 
four consecutive times, ruling 
the District 6A NAIA playoff

Walton Drafted 
By Pipers 

By Charlene Bright 

Redell Walton was drafted by 
the Cleveland Pipers of the 
American Basketball League in 
their annual winter draft of top 
collegiate basketball talent. This 
is a great honor and a great op- 
portunity for Walton. In the 
near future Walton will meet 
with Piper coach. Bill Sharman. 
to discuss matters concerning 
his being drafted by the Pipers. 
Coach Sharman sent a con- 
gratulatory letter to Walton here 
at the college on April 2, 

The Tiger's Roar and the en- 
tire student body wish for Re- 
dell much success in his future 
professional basketball career. 

Congratulations and good luck. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 
favored to win the National 
League pennant in this forth- 
coming season. Manager Walt 
Alston should finally come up 
with the right combination to 
get the best results out of the 
much talented Dodger organiza- 
tion. It seemed that the juggling 
of the line-up the past season 
did not give the players time to 
get adjusted to their new posi- 

The Dodgers, like the Yanks, 
have power and speed along 
with a stroHg- pitching staff. If 
Manager Walt Alston sticks with 
the starling line-up. the Dodgers 
should win the pennant, 

The San Francisco Giants 
should give the Dodgers a good 
fight for the pennant with Cin- 
cinatti and Milwaukee fighting 
it out for third and fourth place. 
The St. Louis Cardinals and Chi- 
cago Cubs should place fifth and 
sixth respectively while the rest 
of the league fights It out for 
the second division.

AlhTourney Pick 
In Kansas City 

By Therman Thomas 
Redell Walton, all - American 
basketball player at Savannah 
State College, was selected to the 
all-tournament team in Kansas 
City, Missouri in the recent NAIA 
tournament. This mark-d the 
first time a player from SSC has 
received such an honor, Walton 
scored 29 points in leading the 
Tigers to an opening. jound vic- 
tory over Pacific 'TjUtheran, 
Later, he scored 37 poin't?Jn a 
losing cause against Arizona 
State College. 

In five appearances in Kan- 
sas City, Walton scored 158 
points for a 31-point game aver- 
age. He received a gold watch 
as a naward for being selected 
to the all -tournament 2nd team. 

Floyd Patterson, *he heavy- 
weight champion of tne world, 
has signed to meet Sonny Liston. 
the number one challenger for 
the crown. This fight is expected 
to be one of the all-time great 
fistic contests ever presented, 
Beth fighters have similar back- 
grounds. Liston was the less for- 
tunate, running into difficulty 
with the law time and time 
again. He just recently con- 
vinced the Pennsylvania Boxing 
Commission that he was worthy 
to fight for the crown. 

These fighters have altogether 
different personalities in the 
ling. Patterson is the "gentle- 
man' vpe (if you can call a man 
defe: 'ng his crown a gentle- 
man while in the ring). On the 
other hand, Liston is the "tiger" 
type while in the ring. 

Liston is tlie heavier of the 
two fighters and can throw the 
knock-out punch easily with 
either hand. Patterson's punches 
are fast and dangerous too. com- 
mg from either direction, 

This is a bout that Liston has 
been trying to get for a long 
time. He is eager to show-off his 
boxing skill. The fight should 
prove to be very interesting. Pat- 
terson is the champ and the 
favorite but one slip-up can 
cost him his title to the hard- 
hitting Liston.

"Whats Next JFK?" 

By Samuel Truell 

Since taking the oath of of- 
fice last January the volatile 
potentate of these United States 
has proven himself to be a man 
of vigor, vitality, tenderness, 
temperance and most recently 
— extremely powerful, 

Mr Kennedy's power was ex- 
emplied a few weeks earlier when 
he hastily stepped in and forced 
the strong steel bosses to yield to 
his demands after they joined 
forces and thus raised the price 
of steel. 

Before one could say "Jack 
Robinson" Kennedy ordered his 
protege in the person of Bobby 
Kennedy to file a court injunc- 
tion ordering the steel magnates 
to end their capricious actions. 

This use of force almost for- 
gotten since the days of Roose- 
velt's "big stick" policy was 
hailed by some as dictatorship, 
but to others it was a much 
needed panacea for arbitrous 

In defense of his actions, the 
President so emphatically told 
the United States Chamber of 
Commerce. "I believe that when- 
ever large industries arbitrarily 
raise prices— and these prices 
tend to endanger the nation's 
welfare — the President of the 
United States should Invoke pre- 
ventative measures, and if the 
American people are against this. 
then they should seek the serv- 
ices of a new President. 

Now that the chief executive 
has voiced such a blunt opinion 
many people are wondering why 
doesn't the President use this 
force on the Congress of the 
United States to stamp out the 

evils prevalent in our society. 
It's widely known that Kennedy 
is planning to push hard for his 
controversial medical aid to the 
aged, foreign aid, and educa- 
tional bills, and if necessary he 
will journey to Capitol Hill to 
meet this end. 

It is equally known that the 
promises he made to Negroes 
with regards to their civil rights 
failed to materialize. Why^ Be- 
cause when it comes to the civil 
rights question. Mr, Kennedy 
leaves the "Big Stick ' on Penn- 
sylvania Avenue. 

This reporter is cognizant of 
the precedents set by this neo- 
phyte in naming Negroes to 
heretofore untold positions, but 
I must say that these posts are 
infinitesimal when one views the 
promises made by this novice 
President during his vigorous 

My question is, will the Presi- 
dent carry the new civil rights 
bill and his "Big Stick" to Capi- 
tol Hill when Congress convenes 
its next session, or will he pro- 
crastinate until 1963 when a new 
term in office is in proximity. 
Is it not true that segregation 
and discrimination endanger the 
welfare of the nation? 

Mr. Kennedy may invoke se- 
rious damage to himself if he 
continues to abscond from Mar- 
tin Luther King's second Eman- 
cipation Proclamation which 
asks for the abolition of segre- 
gation and discrimination in all 
areas of our society. King seems 
to be tired of waiting for '63, Re- 
member Mr. King Mr. President? 
He's responsible for your present 
address. WE THINK SO! 

Impact of Changing Racial Climate on 
Policies and Practices of Y.M.C.A/s 

By Robert W Patrick 

In a discussion of Racil Cli- 
mate one must be aware of the 
primary factors which are un- 
avoidable. One is not reporting 
on events of the past nor the 
present, but rather on the fac- 
tors by which the major prob- 
lems of racial relationships exist. 
Most of our problems are derived 
from the lack of Freedom. Peace, 
Progress, and Security. 

Freedom is one of the main 
reasons that we ithe Negroes i 
are striving to make integration 
successful. Freedom has no defi- 
nite meaning; it is rather an 
individual concept that we are 
striving to obtain. Patrick Henry 
once said, "give me liberty or 
give me death," and the action 
that the Negro has facilitated 
toward integration indicates the 

Progress implies change and 
growth and the need to submit 
to processes of adjustment which 
occasionally are painful, and 
this indeed has been emplified 
in our action toward integration.

Fine Arts Festival 

The Fine Arts Department had 
on display during the fine arts 
festival, a selection of paintings 
and sculptures done by art stu- 
dents of Savannah State College 
and members of the community. 

The purpose of the fine arts 
festival Is to stimulate a greater 
interest and appreciation of the 
arts through the rendering of 
programs, recitals, and exhibi- 
tions. According to Mr. Phillip 
Hampton, SSCs art expert, these 
efforts have been very success- 
ful in arousing student and com- 
munity interest The display 
was housed in the seminar room 
of the college library 

The subjects of the paintings 
ranged from Carl Moore's 
graphic description of the hustle 
and bustle of Times Square after 
a thunderstorm to Mrs. E. A. 
Bertrand's abstract "Tmies Tri- 
angle." Mrs. Bertrand explained 
that her painting represents an 
experimental effort In oil searcih- 
ing for form and textural rela- 
tionships rather than being of 
any particular meaning Itself. 

Others who have paintings on 
display are: S. M. Jason, Ben 
Colbert. Louise Lamar, Carl 
Moore. Johnny Blair, Roosevelt 
Harris and Mary McDew. 

The sculpture was done by 
Mrs, Susan Waters, Mrs. Ber- 
trand and Harry Owens.

rus of Dublin, Georgia was fea-

Ways lo Obtain 
Results From 

By Hersiiel Robinson. Jr. 

This is an article written to 
the students, faculty, and the 
entire college family. 

The class in Effective Living, 
taught by Dr. C, A. Christophe. 
has produced these ways of ob- 
taining results from competition 
as follows: 

L To offer prizes and scholar- 

2. Help students to appreciate 

3. Causes one to display best 

4. Give heavy assignments. 

5 Competition equips one for 
life after school. 

6. A student who wants to 
succeed does not need com- 
petition, it is the student 
who just wants to pass that 
needs it, 

7. Develop pride in one's work. 


1. Personality of teacher can 
influence competition. 

2. Discourages slow students: 
results m disinterest. 

3. Over-exertion (causes head- 
aches ) 

4 The Dean's List and Honor 
Roil may be harmful In 
that some students strive to 
obtain an "A" or "B" with- 
out actually learning the 
subject matter, but merely 
giving an impression. 

We have given you a general 
outlook of what the students are 
thinking about in our class. We 
feel that you can obtain and see 
how we feel about competition.

Defensive whiz Ira Jackson re- 
cently became the second mem- 
ber of Savannah State's fabulous 
"Chicago Five" to be drafted by 
a professional basketball team. 

A former All-City player from 
Chicago, Jackson was considered 
to be the engine for the high- 
powered and high-scoring Tiger 
quintet. Playing with the sha- 
dow of NAIA All-America Redell 
Walton, he was the most under- 
rated player on the squad. 

In the twenty - six games 
played by the Tigers this season, 
the modest and somewhat shy 
Jackson grabbed an average of 
17 rebounds per game and tossed 
in over 19 points per contest. 

The big center teamed up with 
scoring ace Redell Walton to lead 
the Tigers to four consecutive 
and division crowns and three 
District 6-A NAIA titles. 

The Charmin^i Lady 

By Lois Carson 

Charm is something 
Found in you 

That answers the question — 
Who's who? 

We've seen ladies 

And thought they were 

Because all around them; 
The fellows were swarming. 

The fellows probably dug them. 
Because they winked their eyes; 
While the fellows thought they 

had a good friend 
The ladles had just been telling 


Charm is a beauty 
A beauty that is true 
It makes her do the things 
That she should do. 

Her personality 
Sweet as spring air; 
When you're in her midst 
You will be aware. 

She is as pretty 
As a queen's smile 
Warm, pure, lovable 
She is worthwhile.

A True Lovvr''s Story 

By Hershel J. Robinson. Jr, 
The little road to happiness 

It Is not hard to find; 
It might not lead to wealth and 
But to a contentment and 
peace of mind. 
It may have its changing day 
No matter which way It may 
It always at night and sometimes 
Seems to bring us closer to- 
So my darling, De Ann, love me 
And let not our love die never. 

Please open your heart and let 
me inside 
Find a place in your heart. 

A place for me. 

I've hard so many tears since 

we're apart. 
I've had so many fears here in 

my heart. 

N'uw ihr lifat is on. the 
male students at Savannah State 
are falling out in trousers, suits 
and sports coats made of the 
ever popular dacron and cotton 
poplin materials. 

The trousers come in various 
shades of olive, brown, tan, and 
stone mist, the most popular col- 
ors for men this spring. These 
colors are also found In suits and 
sports coats. 

Charles Phillips, pictured 
above, models the latest campus 
fad. He Is wearing a black pop- 
lin coat with tan poplin trousers, 
a blue and white striped snap- 
tab shirt, a red muted tie and of 
course, the ever popular dirty 

Oh! The brief case Is to fool 
the public. It's just another fad. 

Chess Club 

If you hear students at Savan- 
nah State talking about "bish- 
ops," "rooks," or knockouts, the 
chances are pretty good that 
they aren't referring to members 
of the clergy, first year athletes 
or fistic encounters In which one 
competitor spent ten seconds on 
the canvas. 

The above mentioned words 
are terms used in the faclnatlng 
game of chess. Several months 

ago, several persons affiliated 
with Savannah State College 
met with the Intention of organ- 
izing a systematic approach to 
mastering the fundamentals of 
the game. 

According to George Grlmsley, 
sophomore business major and 
acting president of the club, 
meetings are held twice weekly 
to discuss the members' playing 
efficiency. The approach they 
use is very scientific. Beginning 
with the elementary principles, 
history and special points about 
the game they move on to the 
more complicated movements 
and techniques. 

Chess is regarded as one of 
the most demanding games In 
so far as thinking power is con- 
cerned. It Is very popular In 
Russia, especially among scholars 
and Intellectuals. In the cur- 
ricula of our three military aca- 
demies are found courses in 
chess. It is felt that this game 
is one of the most practical ap- 
plications of military strategy. 

Frederick Brown, II, T. P. 
Goyal. George Grlmsley and sev- 
eral graduates of Savannah 
State comprise the chess club.

"The private Negro college is 
unique in the American social 
order for more reasons than its 
lacial designation. In fact, its 
identity as a 'Negro College.' 
while never a cause for shame, 
was an Identity that was im- 
posed, deriving from the most 
easily observable aspect of the 
college — its Negro student body 
— rather than growing out of 
the essential meaning and pur- 
pose of the institution," states 
the UNCP Board of Directors.

mally required to complete work 
toward a degree. 

In addition to this, partici- 
pants will have an opportunity 
to remove any educational de- 
ficiencies that might otherwise 
retard their academic progress. 
This will certainly provide for 
greater achievement on the col- 
legiate level. 

Along with the benefits al- 
ready mentioned, participants 
who are in need of financial help 
may have greater opportunity 
for scholarship loans and grant- 
in aids.

SSC Alumni Play 
Important Role in 
Life of Savannah 

By Wilton C. Scott 

The Savannah State College 
Alumni Scholarship and Solici- 
tation is now in progress and the 
community can look with pride 
on the work of the graduates 
and former students of Savan- 
nah State College. 

In talking with graduate John 
McGlockton, former president of 
the Hub and member of numer- 
ous other organizations as well 
as a member of the board of 
directors of the Carver Savings 
Bank, he states. "We can never 
repay our Alma Mater for what 
it has given us but certainly we 
can try." 

It has been recognized that 
the majority of public school 
teachers In Georgia as welt as 
other states are former students 
of Savannah State College. In 
looking at Savannah in particu- 
lar, it appears that some 90% of 
the teachers are products of 
State, That is true of principals 
also. Seventy per cent of the 
Negro policemen in Savannah 
either graduated or attended Sa- 
vannah State College. The same 
is true of civil service workers, 
agricultural extension workers, 
proprietors, and government em- 

It is obvious that these very 
prosperous graduates will re- 
spond readily to their Alma 
Maters giving freely ranging 
from $10 up. 

Dr, William K. Payne, Presi- 
dent of Savannah State, com- 
ments, "Savannah State College 
places much of Us hope and 
faith for continued growth and 
development in the Alumni. 
Their achievements and influ- 
ence in their respective locations 
continue to creat a large circle 
of Interested and dedicated 
friends. Their annual contribu- 
tions are playing a significant 
role in the growth and improve- 
ment of the College."

President, A$A 

How does a sciiool become a 
college or a college become a 
university? The freshmen come 
and bring a little learning with 
them and the seniors leave with- 
out talcing any away. 

We would like to think of this 
as being just a play on words 
and not a true definition, at 
least not on our campus. On 
June 5. between 70 and 80 sen- 
iors will leave SSC and will take 
away some "learning" and a lot 
more besides. 

Some of the campus' most out- 
standing students will graduate 
this year A kaleidoscopic view 

of the graduating class will bear 
out this statement. 

The campus will certainly miss 
the radiant beauty of Miss SSC, 
Emma Sue McCrory and her at- 
tendants. Juanita Quinn and 
Dorothy Brown, who represented 
SSC on so many occasions. 

Leadershipwise, Student Coun- 
cil President James DeVoe and 
Vice President Berneice Pinkney 
are among those leaving the 
campus after serving as heads of 
the student government. Senior 
representatives Joy Heywood and 
Louise Stewart Wllkerson will 
also graduate. 

SSC collegians will long re- 
member Annette Kennedy and 
Carolyn Vinson for their roles 
in Cameo Sketches and "Medea " 

To prove that more than just 
a little learning will accompany 
the seniors, take a look at the 
membership of Alpha Kappa Mu 
Honor Society. It will lose eight 
of Its ten members. Dorothy 
Brown. James DeVoe. Charles 
Frazier, Mamie Green, Annette 
Kennedy, Verdell Lambert. Juan- 
ita Moon and Berneice Pinkney 
win bid the society farewell. 

The Tiger's Roar will lose Ed- 
itors Berneice Pinkney, Verdell 

Lambert, Associate Editors Ma- 
mie Green and James DeVoe. 

In a surprise move, the stu- 
dent body was asked to name 
their choices of the five most 
outstanding seniors in the June 
graduating class. There were no 
criteria given as a basis for se- 
lection other than being known 
for performing some function 
for the college, nor was there a 
list of candidates. Ail prospec- 
tive seniors were eligible. Look- 
ing over the list of the five se- 
lected, we find James DeVoe in 
first place, Charles Frazier in 
second and Verdell Lambert 
third. Emma Sue McCrory was 

selected for fourth place and 
Bobby Burgesses fifth. 

Yes, seniors, we are taking 
quite a bit away with us. includ- 
ing one of the senior class ad- 
visors. Lest our heads be swelled 
so that they exceed previous 
measurements, a small reminder. 
The wall of SSC will not crumble 
and fall because of our leaving. 
As a matter of fact, most of the 
positions have been already

Bowling Finals Held 

NEW YORK, May 9— The finals of the 550,000 Tournament of 
Champions, which will be bowled at the AMF-equipped Play Bowi 
Lanes in Indianapolis, Indiana, will be seen coast-to-coast over the 
ABC-TV network on Sunday, May 20 from 5:00 p.m until 6:30 p.m. 

Eastern Daylight Time, 

The tournament, the first of ~ ^ ~ ~— 

its kind, will be made up of a 
field of 25 bowlers. Every one of 
them is a champion in his own 
right, having won either a 
Professional Bowlers Association 
tourney or one of the top na- 
tional titles. Such stars as Dick 
Weber, current "Bowler of the 
V'Mi" who is the All-Star cham- 
pinii and has won more P.B.A. 
tt.uirneys than any other bowler; 
Don Carter, World's winner; 
Fred Lening; Harry Smith; Glen 
Allison; Carmen Salvmo; Vern 
Downing; George Howard; and 
many other great names of 
bowling will compete for the top 
prize of $15,000. 

The bowlers will begin the 
tournament on Saturday. May 19 
by rolling 24 games. Each bowler 
will roll against every other 
bowler. The 25th game will be 
a "position" game. Each bowler 
will bowl the man who imme- 
diately precedes him in the 
scoring, thus second-place man 
bowls the first-place man, fourth 
against third, sixth against fifth 
and so on through the entire 

In this round, as in the 24 
preceding games, the bowler is 
credited with one point for each 
game he wins and one point for 
every 30 pins he knocks down. 

The three top scorers meet on 
TV and the winner is determined 
by total plnfall for two games. 

As with many bowling spec- 
taculars of the past, AMF will 
coproduce the "500" Festival 
Tournament of Champions.

I've tried so many, many ways,

And the things we are supposed 
to do. 
What is the place in which we

the best. 
So as to live in peace and in

Oh! my darling, close your eyes 
And let the visions come alive. 
And don't let them fade 

Like the evening ocean tide. 
The breeze may rupture the

But deep in your heart I hope 
it will always be me. 

Wherever I go. and whatever I 
I'll always worry, wait, love,

Our summit, our goals, are for-

Although the road may some-

And the little river of our life 
too deep. 
I will always say your love is 
my peak. 
But if we didn t dream. Darling

"A Dislaiil Holl" 

By Charles A. Phillips 

" Distant Bell," was the pathe- 
tic narrative of a mother who 
has been misunderstood and has 
thus been treated as one who 
was insane. It all began when 
her husband, James, had her 
committed to a rest home early 
in her married life. Although, at 
times her actions were a bit ir- 
regular, she was not lacking In 
wisdom and understanding, 

The mother. Mrs. Lucy Greer, 
a leading role played by Miss 
Jewel Grant, a graduate of How- 
ard University, a teacher of spe- 
cial education, and a six-year 
member of the Y. Players, has 
the strange obsession that she 
has lived in other periods of our 
civilization. A great part of her 
problem has been that of her 
brother-in-law. Burton Greer, 
which was played by Charles A. 
Phillips, a Junior, majoring In 
Social Science, a prominent 
character in "Dark Victory" and 
a third year member of the Y. 
piayers, who felt that she should 
be committed. However he did 
succeed in having committed 
her iavorite daughter Waverly, 
which was played by Mrs. Sally 
M, Marlon, a graduate of Morgan 
State College where she partici- 
pated in drama, a third year 
member of the Y. Players. 

The story became complicated 
when as a young man John 
Greighton, a leading part, played 
by Daniel Washington, a teacher 
of English, and a four year mem- 
ber of the Y. Players, who has 
appeared In several productions 
of the College Playhouse, came 
to work in their town and found 
himself interested in two of the 
daughters, one the serious type, 
the other the gay type. 

Flagg. played by Rose Baker, a 
senior at Savannah State Col- 
lege, a college Playhouse mem- 
ber, majoring in Social Science 
and is active in many campus 
organizations. The third daugh- 
ter, Barrett, played by Flora 
Braxton, a senior majoring in 
Business Administration, a mem- 
ber of the College Playhouse, 
and many campus organizations, 
the quiet type, built up her bit- 
terness for her mother and fi- 
nally blows up.

Adams, Jean Seabrook. Sarah

Benjamin Colbert.

In the industrial and technical 
science area of Savannah State 
College, the technical science 
club has just finished its most 
recent activity which was a fund 
raising boatride to Dafuski Is- 
land The funds will be used to 
defray the operational expenses 
of the club. 

One of the purposes of the club 
is to acquaint the students with 
the many areas encompassed in 
the technical sciences. It strives 
also to heighten the competitive 
spirit of its members. 

Membership in the technical 
science club is both a challenge 
and an honor. The challenge is 
to keep pace with the ever 
changing industrial and scien- 
tific growth of the space age. 
The honor is granted to those

Dr. Lynette Saine of Atlanta University discusses reading prob- 
lems on first AH-ColIe^e Assembly. 

Dr. Lynette Saine, Professor 
of Education from Atlanta Uni- 
versity, was the featured speaker 
on the first All College Assembly 
for the Summer Session at Sa- 
vannah State College. 

The Atlanta University reading

Hold Interesting Jol>s 

Bernard Kent, Jr.. junior. Bi- 
ology major. Savannah, is em- 
ployed as a camp counselor at 
Camp Henry located in the state 
of New York for the summer 

Kent, serving as a counselor, 
will assume the responsibility of 
directing the physical and camp- 
ing activities of 18 campers who 
comprise some 90 boys attending 
Camp Henry for a three-week 
session, under the auspices of 
the famous Henry Street Settle- 
ment in New York City, 

The Henry Street Settlement 
is a group of houses located in 
New York City which is geared 
toward the purpose of helping 
persons in that community to 
build better lives for themselves 
and their community. Offering 
a wide variety of services to the 
New York community, the Henry 
Street Settlement serves more 
than 11,000 persons a year drawn 
from more than 40 racial and 
religious origins. Camp Henry 
for boys is only one of these 
services established to meet the 
need of our society. 

Kent is the second S.S.C, stu- 
dent to be employed by Camp 
Henry. Abraham L. Jones, a 
graduating senior, worked in 
this same position for two sum- 

Therman Thomas, a junior. 
Health, Physical Education and 
Recreation major, has been ap- 
pointed to the position of Direc- 
tor of the Sophronia Tompkins 
Recreation Center, He assumed 
the responsibilities of the posi- 
tion in June of this year. The 
City Recreation Commission, 
through the Savannah Civil 
Service System, hired the stu- 
dent on basis of recommenda- 
tions from teachers, persons with 
whom he had previously been 
employed, and courses in his ma- 
jor that he has completed at 
Savannah State College. He has 
general supervision of the build- 
ing and its facilities, the per- 
sonnel employed at the gym. and 
its entire operation. One of his 
duties is to develop programs 
of group and individual partici- 
pation. These may or may not 
be athletic, in fact there are 
several activities open to adults 
and children such as arts and 
crafts and folk dancing. 

Thomas graduated from 
Tompkins High School in 1960 
and entered Savannah State the 
following fall. He has had five 
years experience as a football 
player, four as a regular starter 
at Tompkins and one as a player 
on the Savannah State team 
during his freshman year. 

Some of the students at Sa- 
vannah State this summer are 
not officially enrolled at the reg- 
istrar's office!! In fact they 
haven't paid their fees at the 
bursar's office!! 

No cause for alarm, though, 
the students I'm referring to are 
the group of outstanding high 
school graduates who partici- 
pated in the Pilot Study Project 
at Savannah State. 

The Pilot Training Program 
sponsored by the Southern Edu- 
cation Foundation and Savan- 
nah State College, began on June 
20 and ended on July 20. 

The students were tested dur- 
ing the early stages of the pro- 
gram to determine their mental 
abilities and scholastic achieve- 
ment. At the end of the program 
they will be tested again to ex- 
amine the effectivenes.s of the 
four weeks of intensified train- 
ing in reading, mathematics and 

Students participating were: 

Betty Jean Gordon. Jean But- 
ler and Shirley Connors, from 
Beach High School; Barbara 
Borne and Mary Joyce Reeves, 
Ballard-Hudson High School: 
Ruby Dean Clarke, Dorothy 
Brown and Sarah Nell Sinmions, 
William James High School; 
Jean Stewart, Barbara Jean Pray 
and Nathaniel Fuller. Liberty 
County High; Essie Grant and 
Elizabeth Miller from Tompkins 
High School; Romona Marks, 
Jeffrey James, Ethel Mae Rob- 
inson and Betty Jean Simmons. 
Sol C. Johnson; Bertha Moore. 
Robert Williams and Eugene 
Whitehead fro m Waynesboro 
High and Industrial Training 
School. Wayynesboro, Georgia. 

Miss Louise Owens and Mr. 
Robert Holt worked closely with 
the program. 

Dr. E. K. Williams, Co-ordina- 
tor of General Education, is di- 
rector of the project. 

Dr. Tucker Addod 
J\> CIk iiiislry Stall 

The Chemistry Department 
announced the appointment of 
Mr. Willie G. Tucker to the 
chemistry staff. Tucker studied 
at Tuskegee Institute, Tuskegee, 
Alabama where he received his 
B.S. and M.S. degrees. He has 
been a teaching fellow at the 
University of Oklahoma for the 
past four years, where he has 
completed all requirements for 
the Ph.D. in chemistry. 

As a graduate student at Ok- 
lahoma, Tucker worked on the 
preparation of Two-Chloropyru- 
din compound. He holds mem- 
bership in the Society of Xi, a 
national scientific honor society. 
and the American Chemical So- 

Dr. Pratt, chairman of the de- 
partment, is also a graduate of 
the University of Oklahoma. 

With the addition of Dr. Tuc- 
ker to the Staff, the department 
will be able to offer better train- 
ing to the majors as well as to 
majors in other areas, such as 
biology, who must have strong 
backgrounds in chemistry. This 
will be accomplished, at least in 
part, by providing well trained 
staff members. A further at- 
tempt will be made to increase 
speciliazation — that is to have on 
the faculty a Ph.D. in each of 
the five major areas of chemis- 
try—physical, analytical, inor- 
ganic, bio-and organic. Dr. Tuc- 
ker's area of specialization was 
organic chemistry and instru- 
mental analysis. Dr. Pratt con- 
centrated in bio-chemistry. 

With improved staffing, equip- 
ment and facilities, Pratt envis- 
sioned the possibility of Savan- 
nah State offering graduate 
courses and/or advanced degrees 
in chemistry.

By Benjamin Colbert 

After 15 year.s of service to 
Savannah State College, Mr. 
E. A. Bertrand is returning to the 
Virgin Islands to accept a posi- 
tion of Deputy Commissioner of 
Health in the Virgin Islands. 

Mr. Bertrand has returned to 
his native land after spending 
25 years In the United States. 
He came to SSC in 1947 and 
serveJ as Secretary of Veterans 
Affairs. He was later appointed 
to chief accountant, assistant 
comptroller and comptroller. 

Savannah State's loss is the 
Virgin Island's gain, Mr. Ber- 
trand, during his stay here, won 
the admiration of countless 
numbers of people in which he 
has come in contact. 

Artist Leaves Gift 

Mrs. E. A. Bertrand, wife of 
Savannah State Comptroller 
Emanuel Bertrand, has left a 
collection of original paintings 
to the college in hopes that the 
gifts will touch-off action that 
will result in the erection of a 
permanent art gallery on cam- 
pus. A pupil of Prof. Hampton. 
she is an accomplished student- 
artist of five years training in 
painting. Her works have been 
on display at the Ogunquit.

World News and Politics 

By Samuel M Trucl 

Tiie Abolilinii of llir 
Unit Svsleni 

In an effort to keep church 
and state separate as put forth 
in the U. S. Constitution, the 
Supreme Court outlawed the 
formalation and the enforcing 
of OFFICIAL prayers in public 

The ruling came about as the 
result of the contesting of the 
officials of the New York pub- 
lic school system right to have 
children recite an OFFICIAL 
prayer prior to classes. The brief 
prayer said. "Almighty God, we 
acknowledge our dependence 
upon thee, and we beg thy bless- 
ings upon our parents, our 
teachers, and our country." 

Under tlie law students were 
not compelled to recite the 
prayer. These not In accord 
were allowed to leave during the 
religious exercise, but to the 
court this meant no difference, 
because the prayer was WRIT- 
who remained it was a religious 
exercise, "An official religious 
exercise is unconstitutional," the 
court said. 

This columnist fails to see why 
there is so much controversy 
over the issue — except on the 
part of the Southern congress- 
men and politicians who seek to 
disinfranchlse the court by pre- 
senting only part of tlie Issue to 
his constituents The court DID 
null and void the- official sanc- 
tioning of prayers by govern- 

Today, more and more people 
are joining the ranks of the 
Goldwaters and/or Talmadges in 
saying that the Supreme Court 
is too powerful. These "right- 
ists," as they call themselves. 
declare that some of the power 
of the Supreme Court should be 
curtailed. These "right-wingers" 
claim that all of the Court's rul- 
ings since 1954 have been un- 

They say nothing about the 
Dred Scott decision or the up- 
holding of the "separate-but- 
equal doctrine" a few decades 

We should accept the rulings 
of the court whether we go along 
with them or not. If we reject 
the court, we reject the consti- 
tution; if we reject the consti- 
tution, we refute the foundation 
upon which this nation was laid. 

Hif>;Ii Coiirl Hules 
On Prayer 

The refusal of the U. S. Fed- 
eral District Court to recognize 
the present county unit system 
In Georgia is the best thing that 
happened here since Dr. Martin 
Luther King moved to Atlanta. 

Georgia has been ordered to 
re-apportion its legislature. Un- 
der the old system the city vot- 
ers' strength was unequal to the 
power held by the rural voters. 
therefore, with the idea of stay- 
ing In office in mind, the law- 
makers in Atlanta did not hesi- 
tate to jump when the country 
folk cracked the whip. The peo- 
ple in the larger metropolitan 
areas paid the bulk of the taxes 
while the people in the rural 
areas benefitted from their po- 
litical advantage. 

Recently, the Georgia Demo- 
cratic Party voted to outlaw the 
present county-unit system, July 
10th was the deadline for the 
presentation of the revision 
plans. The party decreed that 
the 1962 gubernatorial race and 
other state offices will be de- 
cided by the popular vote. 

The County-Unit System, 
which has been in operation 
since 1908 i54 years too long). 
provided for the allocation of six 
votes each to the eight largest 
counties, four each to the next 
30 counties ind population, while 
the next 121 counties held two 
votes apiece. The candidate or 
candidates carrying a particular 
county received that particular 
county's unit votes. 

The candidate receiving 410 
units or more became the victor, 
even If his opponent or oppon- 
ents received more popular votes.

Sliuleiits Siipjiort 
Coiirl'.s Prayer 

By Abraham L, Jones 
The results of a canvassing of 
the student body of Savannah 
State College showed that a 
majority (150) of the students 
questioned at Savannah State 
support the recent U. S. Supreme 
Court's decision making it un- 
constitutional for the use of 
official state prayers In public 

The students were selected at 
random and the following ques- 
tions were asked: 

"Do you support the U, S. 
Supreme Court's decision 
making it unconstitutional 
for the use of official state 
prayers in public schools." 
110 students replied "yes" 
while 40 rejected the decision. 
The affirmative consensus was 
centered mainly around the be- 
lief that the court's function is 
to interpret the constitution and 
all religious education and train- 
ing should emanate from church 
schools and homes. 

Those students rejecting the 
decision contend igenerally) that 
this decision is abetting the 
cause of communism. 

The decision in question was 
made in a case involving a 22- 
word prayer by the New York 
Board of Regents for use in the 
state's public schools.

Job of Making 
Your Newspaper 

NEW YORK— Canada's news- 
print producers who provide 
more than 70 percent of the 
American supply, have just fin- 
ished a key phase of the job of 
making paper for next year's 

This is the annual spring drive, 
in which millions of pulpwood 
logs cut In the backwoods last 
fall and winter are floated down- 
river to the mills. Most of the 
paper made from these logs will 
reach U.S. newspapers during 

Details of the drive are ex- 
plained by the Newsprint Infor- 
mation Committee, composed of 
a representative group of the 
Canadian mills. 

Tossing one log in the river to 
float downstream is simple and 
costs nothing. Tossing in some 
40 million logs is both compli- 
cated and costly. 

From the air, a lake or river 
full of logs looks like a tub of 
baih water into which have been 
dumped twelve boxes of corn- 
flakes. The latter eventuality 
would present certain problems 
for the pluming and these prob- 
lems have their counterparts in 
the comiJlex river drive. 

Annual Push 

Records for one such river 
operation show that the annual 
push requires the services of 300 
men to move a million cords 189 
miles. It takes 150 days and al- 
most a million dollars. 

Os the thaw builds up the head 
of water in the lakes and rivers, 
the logs are enclosed in booms 
which are towed into position 
behind the dams. For this job 
and kindred work, the inventory 
includes 20 power boats, 10 out- 
board motors, two derricks 
mounted on scows, ten other 
scows, and four houseboats.

As we look about us in the li- 
brary, the classrooms, the labo- 
ratories, we see many individu- 
als who normally perform the 
duties of the classroom teacher 
during the academic year re- 
turning to college to participate 
in workshops and other activities 
of interest to in-service teach- 
ers. Whether it is their will or 
not. these persons have returned 
to improve their skills as con- 
veyors of knowledge, Instigators 
of intellectual curiosity and 
moldei's of citizens of this state 
and nation. 

At no time in history has such 
a high premium been placed on 
formal education. The scientific 
marvels of the past decade alone 
are astonishing. Scientists and 
engineers have perfected ma- 
chines that perform certain 
tasks many times faster and 
with much more accuracy than 
the human brain, aircraft that 
transport their multi-ton cargo 
at unbelievable speeds over 
thousands of miles. Medical 
science, through improvements 
in facilities and techniques, has 
increased the span of life for 
the average person born in 1960 
to 69-7 years as compared to 60 
in 1950. Out of every thousand 
babies born in 1951, '29,1 died be- 
fore they reached their first 
birthday. In 1961 this figure was 
reduced to 25 out of every thous- 
and. Vast improvements in the 
standard of living and intellec- 
tual status of people all over the 
world have been made. 

Along with these changes for 
a more "livable" world, there are 
many other changes taking 
place. If not dealt with prop- 
erly, they threaten the security 
and well-being of all mankind. 
Enslaved men all over the world 
are quickly throwing off the 
bonds of colonialism and oppres- 
sion, A powerful economical- 
political system already has un- 
der its control millions of people 
and is growing more powerful 
and gigantic every day. The 
population boom in several coun- 
tries of the world means the 
amount of food available per 
individual is decreasing rapidly. 
There is much concern as to the 
inadequacy of our water supply. 
Statistics show that the crime 
rate among Americans is on the 

niarch. Men of one color are 
sending men of another color, 
often illiterate, unskilled, mis- 
fortunate, to other parts of their 
country in soothe of an urge that 
makes them hate, in satisfaction 
of prejudiced beliefs and opin- 
ions seasoned by agents of bi- 
gotry, ignorance and unwar- 
ranted convention. 

The story of the fourth grade 
youngsters reply to his teacher's 

geography question is quite fa- 
mous. "Johnny, what shape is 
the world?" His reply: "Pa says 
the world is in a terrible shape." 

Yes. we are living in troubled 
times. We face destruction and 
possible annihilation of the hu- 
ma nrace. The storms of war, 
poverty and ignorance have 
taken their toll on the world. 
The flood waters have risen to 
a critical state — but we still have 
time to pump out some of these 
waters that threaten the erosion 
of man's culture and civilization. 
There must be the creation of a 
greater degree of understanding 
between nation and nation, 
black and white. As members of 
the minority group we must re- 
fute the false contention held by 
the white supremlsts that Ne- 
groes belond on the back seat. 
We must, however, be able to 
"measure-up," Our people must 
be competent, Our teachers must 
be of the highest quality, lest we 
find ourselves within an endless 
circle of low-quality education. 
We can not take yesterday's 
tools, do a good job today, and 
expect to be in business tomor- 

So teachers and potential 
teachers, we must take our busi- 
ness more seriously. We must 
decide that second best is not 
good enough. We must realize 
that teaching is a sacred profes- 
sion. Jesus Christ, Socrates and 
Aristotle, three of the greatest 
beings who ever lived, were 
teachers. Teachers of facts, 
mendors of ideals, molders of 
men — just as you are. We 
should, therefore, work more 
diligently so that we may be- 
come better teachers of facts, 
menders of ideals, molders of 
men. This is the charge of 20th 
century education — this is the 
charge of Savannah State Col-

Alas! Summer is here! And, 
luckily ladies it didn't come 
alone. For if you look around, 
you will behold summer's accom- 
panist, this season's- most ultra- 
chic fashions. They're every- 
where . . . 

On the beach, at a glance you 
see Jantzen, Catalina. Rose Marie 
Reid. At the park, you see cap- 
tivating styles by Miss Pat, Mac- 
shore Classics, Petti, and Mr. 
Mort. During an evening on the 
town, you glimpse the sleek, so- 
phisticated stylings of the fash- 
ion artist. Jonathan Logan. Yes. 
any young lady would be set for 
a summer of fun and excitement 
with such combinations. 

Speaking of fun and excite- 
ment, you're sure to have just 
that when you head for the 
beach in a striking Rose Marie 
Reid swlmsuit. In the event, you 
haven't noticed, each year the 
beachwear becomes just a little 
bit snazzier. This year the ver- 
satile Rose Marie Reid styles are 
accentuated by daring, low-cut 
backs. The alluring styles come 
i nlatex. knit, and the latest 
material lycra fibers. And here's 
another bonus, the famous RMR 
swim suits may be gotten in ev- 
ery color of the rainbow. 

Now, if you will just hold on 
for something new . . . Yes, new, 
fantastic, and stylish are perfect 
adjectives to describe the latest, 
greatest beach sensation— the 
"snuggle shirts." They are ador- 
able three-quarter length cot- 
ton knit shirts that create oceans 
of interest on the beach. Com- 
paratively new. these shirts may 
be worn as a cover-up garmet 
over bathing suits or shorts. 
Some of these unique shirts may 
even be bought with hoods if you 
crave a worldly air. However, 
regardless of the style of the 
shirt, all of them look bright, 
breezy and SNUGGY. 

Vision Care Helps 
You Drive Safely 

The difference between life 
and death lies in your eyes when 
you're driving a car, the Vision 
Conservation Institute of Penna., 
Inc., warns. 

For the sake of yourself and 
your car— not to mention the 
other fellow on the road— it be- 
hooves you to keep your vision 
functioning at the highest level 
of efficiency- 
Optometrists can help you do 
this. In most cases they are able 
to correct any visual errors that 
exist very satisfactorily. And. 
even if you have faults which 
may not be corrected, you'll find 
it helps to know what they are. 
A frequent eye examination is 
a definite step in the right di- 
rection of safety. For the motor- 
ist, clear, sharp seeing is of pri- 
mary importance. 

But. you also need a good, 
wide field of vision. The normal 
person can see almost 90 degrees 
to each side while fixing his 
vision on a point straight ahead. 
If your field is less than 75 de- 
gress to each side, there is dan- 
ger you may fail to see a car or 
a pedestrian approaching from 
Now, to leave the outside 
scene for a while. There are just 
as attractive outfits to be worn 
inside. For example, an original 
by Jonathan Logan, or Youth 
Guild- What could be more en- 
ticing to don for those spark- 
ling parties? 

The lovely dress styles shown 
this season have bodices that are 
shoestring, single - strap, and 
strapless. In addition to those 
assets, this summer's dreamy, 
after-five fashions come in dur- 
able materials like petit point 
pique, batiste, organdy and the 
delectable nylon tulle. And to 
add a bit of good news to the 
"slim Miss," the sku-ts to the 
season's newest dresses are bill- 
owy, floaty, and bouffant. 

Fashionably speaking, that's 
about it for this issue. Well, 
how about those fashions for 
brightening up last summer's 
wardrobe? EUes sont belles, 
n'est-ce pas? 

the left or right. Also, a diseased 
condition may be causing this. 

A driver should also have effi- 
cient depth perception, in order 
to judge how far away the neigh- 
boring cars are and to estimate 
their speedy. Many accidents 
are caused by poor depth per- 

Color vision rarely presents a 
serious problem to a motorist, 
for less than 1% of all those 
with faulty color vision are un- 
able to distinguish red traffic 
lights from green.

Summer is Jiere and many 
teachers throughout America are 
busying themselves in further 
pursuits of learning in the va- 
rious colleges and universities. 
At least this is the case at the 
Savannah State College where 
in-service teachers from al! over 
the state liave returned to the 
campus to upgrade themselves 

To keep these teachers abreast 
of current trends, the Savannah 
State College has set up its 1962

Two exciting parties and the 
opportunity to meet many inter- 
esting people has made residing 
in Camilla Hubert Hall both in- 
formative and enjoyable so far 
this summer. 

Among the varied personali- 
ties living in the dorm are Pilot 
Study students, in-service teach- 
ers and Dr. Irene Ighodaro. from 
Nigeria. West Africa, Dr. Ighod- 
aro was on tour in the United 
States and Puerto Rico to study 
the living conditions In America, 

In order to get acquolnted so- 
cially, everyone In the dormitory 
along with the young men of 
Wright Hall were invited to a 
party in the College Center on 
June 29. The second "Feast 
Party." as they are referred to 
by some students, took place on 
Wednesday, June 11. in the lobby 
of Camilla Hubert Hall, Both af- 
fairs were very much enjoyed. 

There are a number of activi- 
ties on the agenda for the sum-

Dplectiie" Successful In Solving 
of ik "Mi\\{ Razor" 

By Elmer Thomas 

I examined briefly the gadget 
on Barbara's desk in the Pro- 
cessing Room of the College Li- 
brary, but immediately I could 
not determine what it was or 
what it did. Because of its size 
and shape I could "readily see" 
that it was an electric razor. The 
parallel slots on the end gave 
further proof to this contention. 

"But what was it doing on 
Barbara's desk?" I asked myself, 
"She shouldn't bring it to work. 
Maybe she found it somewhere. 

Whatever the reason, it is out of 

After she returned to her sta- 
tion at the typewriter I said to 
her, politely: 

"Barbara, what are you doing 
with that thing on your desk?" 

"I use it, silly!" 

"There's nothing wrong with 
that, but do you use it here, in 
the office?" 

"Where else would I use it?" 

"Weil. I think you should take 
care of all your personal groom- 
ing at home." 

"Grooming? Who said any- 

thing about grooming? This is 
an electric E-RASER ! ! 

"Look here." she said. 

She carefully placed a sheet 
of paper into the typewriter and 
wrote In bold capital letters, 
"S-T-U-P-I-D." She clicked the 
switch and the motor hummed. 
She moved the twirling pivot of 
the machine across the word she 
had written. Within an instant 
the word was almost completely 
eradicated. Just like you do with 
the thing on the top of your pen- 

Hooray! for mechanization!! 


It is our civic duty to guard 
and rise in defense of our own

infringe upon our rights.

Some Days Are Loiifxer 
Than Others 

Many Savannah Staters liave 
said "This sure has been a long 
day." and according to the U, S. 
Coast and Geodetic Survey, some 
days are longer than others. Of 
course the difference is .so mi- 
nute that it could not be real- 
ized by the human mind. 

The rotation of the earth on 
its axis has been said to be 
slightly variable and hence the 
sideral day, and also that of the 
mean solar day derived from It. 
are not strictly uniform. The 
non-uniformity in the rotation 
is produced In three different 

(11 Tidal friction acts as a 
brake on the rotation and causes 
a slow secular increase in the 
length of the day. The present 
length of the day is closely equal 
to the period of free oscillation 
of the atmosphere, whose ampli- 
tude Is therefore increased by a 
reasonable effect. The phase of 
the atmospheric tide Is such that 
it tends to accelerate the rota- 
tion of the earth, energy being 
drawn from the sun by a heat 
engine effect. It is probable that 
tidal friction has slowed the 
earth down until the length of 
the day has gradually approxi- 
mated to the period of the at- 
mospheric oscillation and that 
the atmospheric accelerating 
maintains tlie rate of rotation 
statistically uniform. 

12) There are irregular fluc- 
tuations in the rate of rotation. 
which is sometimes retarded and 
sometimes accelerated, Within a 
comparatively short time the 
length of the day may change 
by as much as five milliseconds. 
There is some evidence that 
changes within the earth's mag- 
netic field may effect the rate of 

"31 There is a fairly regular 
seasonal variation in the rate of 
rotation, the earth becoming 
slow in the spring and fast in 
autumn; the seasonal variation 
in the length of the day is about 
two milliseconds. This seasonal 
variation is a result of a change 
in the angular momentmii of the 
seasonal winds, which must be 
compensated by o corresponding 
variation in tlie opposite sense 
of the angular momentum of the

Emotional depression disturbs 
the normal balance of sugar 
metabolism in the body, and this 
in turn, causes some obse women 
to overeat. 

The overeating is not caused 
by an increase in hunger drive. 
but by a failure of the brain's 
signal mechanism to indicate 
when hunger has been satisfied. 
said Dr, Albert Stunkind. Profes- 
sor of Psychiatry at the Univers- 
ity of Pennsylvania, 

The upset In sugar metabolism 
seems to interfere with proper 
stimulation of the brain me- 
chanism for indicating hunger 
satisfaction. Studies Indicate 
that mental attitudes and reac- 
tions play an important role in 
accelerating or retarding a per- 
son's inclination to become ex- 
cessively overweight. 

Hand and WrisI X-Rays 
Iileiilify Living and Dead 

An X-ray film of a human 
wrist or hand can provide "con- 
clusive proof" of a person's iden- 
tity, a Stanford University 
School of Medicine scientist re- 

Individual bones of the hand 
and wrist differ enough from one 
person to another that if no 
other marks are available — such 
as fingerprints or dental work — 
the person can be identified. 

A study of hand X-rays of the 
same individual from early 
chiidiiood over many years shows 
that tlie skeletal features useful 
for identification usually are 
fixed during late adolescece and 
remain relatively unclianged un- 
til at least well into the thirties.

WASHINGTON— U, S, smokers 
paid enough in cagarette taxes 
last year to pay for the U. S, 
space agency's fiscal 1963 pro- 
gram, with funds left to buy 40 
Atlas missiles. 

Tobacco News, published by 
The Tobacco Institute, Inc., said 
cigarett*^ taxes last year brought 
in about $31 billion to all levels 
of government in the U, S.— fed- 
eral, state and local. The 1963 
budget of the National Aeronau- 
tics and Space Administration is 
S2,% billion. 

Putting it another way, the 
annual cigarette tax collection 
would provide enough money to 
pay for the 1963 operations of 
six key government depart- 
ments: Commerce. Labor, Post 
Office. State, the Federal Avia- 
tion Agency and the General 
Services Administration, says 
Tobacco News. 

Or the same money would buy 
these items:

Adherence to Important Rules 
Should Make Summer Vacations 
Safer, More Enjoyable 

FLINT, Mich.— Your vacation trip this summer will be a lot 
safer and more enjoyable if you will get plenty of rest each night 
and limit your driving to 10 hours per day. 

These are two of the most important rules followed by Buick 
test drivers in compiling a record of 3,000,000 miles without an acci- 
dent at the General Motors Proving Grounds, Milford, Michigan. 

A, E, McManama, genera! supervisor of Buick's road test depart- 
ment, lists the following as musts for Buick's driving team: 

Good living habits— plenty of sleep and rest, 
and a good frame of mind with no worries 

while driving. 

Break up monotony — stop for coffee 
or gas. at regular intervals, get out 
and walk around. Never go more than 
two hours or 150 miles without a stop. 
This keeps you fresh, alert and at your 
driving peak. 

Limit your Daily Driving— ten hours of driv- 
ing per day is the limit. After that you 

are asking for trouble. 

Car maintenance — it's a must to 
keep your car in top mechanical 

Drive a tidy Car: Loose articles, litter, pack- 
ages, etc., can be dangerous. Keep the in- 
side of your car neat and tidy, everything 
packed in convenient places where loose 
items can't slide around. Packages piled on 
the rear window ledge becomes missiles in 
case of a collision, and they also block the 
view of the driver behind you. 

Follow road conditions: If the sign 
says 40 m.p,h., believe it. If it says. 
"Slow, dangerous curve," take the- 
highway department's word for it. The 
signs are placed along the roadway 
ior your help, and they have a good 
reason for being there. Dusk and 
dawn are poor visibility driving times. 
Use extra care then. 

■'These are the rules we follow." points out McManama, "and 
everyone of them can be adapted by the motorist. Strict adherence 
to them is the best insurance we know against accidents."

—Over half of the U. S. mili- 
tary aircartf scheduled for

On the average, taxes account 
for half the price of every pack 
of cigarettes sold, says the pub- 

lication. Tobacco is the most 
heavily taxed of all agricultural 

The first cigarette tax was 
levied to help finance the Civil 
War. The last U. S, boost, to 8 
cents a package, was the Korean 
War, but it has been in effect 
ever since.

students enrolled in the School

vannah State College presented 
a Symposium on "Achieving Ex- 
cellence In Teaching Through 
the School Library," at the regu- 
lar all-college assembly on 
Thursday, July 12th. 

This topic was selected for dis- 
cussion in order to dramatize the 
library as a teaching materials 
center. Far too long have teach- 
ers in the public schools ignored 
the library in their teaching. 
Educators, lor the purposp of 
strengthening the public schools, 
are now calling for the abandon- 
ment of the one-text-book ap- 
proach and are now insisting on 
the use of a wide assortment of 
books and materials which will 
enrich and reinforce the learn- 
ing process. 

An illustration of the lack of 
concern for the school library is 
The Secondary School Teachers 
and Library Services, a report of 
a significant and revealing study 
of teacher use of the library by 
the NEA in November 1958, This 
study found that among second- 
ary school teachers, the major 
users are teachers of English, 
Social Studies and Science, 
Teachers of Business Education, 
Industrial Arts, and Mathematics 
are minor users. Teachers of 
art, foreign language, household 
arts, music, health and physical 
education are potential users; 
however, many of them find the

A total of 1160 students are en- 
rolled at Savannah State dur- 
ing the 1962 Fall quarter accord- 
ing to figures released from the 
Office of the Registrar. 

This year's entering class is 
7% smaller than the class enter- 
ing in the fall of 1961 (320 in 
1961 as compared to 298 in 1962) ; 
and 287o smaller than the 1960 
freshman class when 412 stu- 
dents began their studies here. 

One of the most noteworthy 
of changes and additions made 
this academic year is the ad- 
dition of more late afternoon 
and evening classes to provide 
persons not able to attend regu- 
lar sessions with the opportunity 
to receive an education. 

The total length of the college 
day has been increased with the 
addition of what was formerly 
the lunch hour as a regular class 
period. In June of 1963, the col- 
lege will have ended its first 
full year as a fully accredited 
member of the Southern Associ- 
ation of Colleges and Secondary 

A new grading system will go 
into effect. The "4 point system" 
will replace the "3 point system" 
used here in past years.

The college has embarked 
upon a progiam of building and 
campus improvement. Roads 
around the campu.s have been 
re-surfaced and a new 100-room, 
$300,000 dormitory for women 
students is in the making and 
should be completed by the fall 
of next year. 

The second and third floors of 
Hill Hall are taking on a new 
look. On the third floor are three 
music practice rooms, music 
study lounge, four offices, large 
rooms for music rehearsals and 
a music-art classroom. There is 
also an art study room, a class- 
room tor ceramics and sculpture, 
rooms for kiln and art supplies 
in addition to a large room for 
paintings and designs. 

On the first assembly program 
of the season, Pres. Payne spoke 
to the college family on new 
challenges to be met by college 
students today and in the years 
to come. 

At the end of his speech the 
president left the student body 
with these very timely words; 

"I hope as we open the 1962 
school year, that we will open 
our minds and hearts and set a 
standard to help us use our time 
to the best possible advantages."

We Would Like To See the Day.. 

When students at Savannah 
State College would become fully 
aware of the challenges that 
confront us and would dedicate 
ourselves to the Improvement— 
culturally, educationally and 
economically— of our people, our 
nation and the world by the ap- 
plication of what we have learn- 
ed and will press on toward new 
goals and horizons. . - 

When those persons not dedi- 
cated to teaching and not 
seriously in the welfare of our 
students would quit the profes- 
sion, or in the case of future 
teachers, to either develop a firm 
mastery of the subject matter 
and effective techniques of In- 
struction or find other occupa- 
tions. . - , 

When educators of the "old 
order" would realize that a new 
day is here and lend their moral 
support, at least, to the fight 
for freedom. . . . 

When whites would realize 
that the American Negro Intends 
to secure for himself all rights 
and privileges enjoyed by other 
citizens. , , . 

When (here would be nn need 
for the NAACP , . - when the 
White Citizens Council and Ku 
Klux Klan would dissolve. . . . 

When candidates for public 
office will no longer abusively 
in.sult a segment of the popula- 
tion and at the same time ad- 
vocate complete disregard for 
the welfare of these same peo- 
ple. . . - 

When our people would come 
to realize that In order for us 
to elevate our status from the 
lowest rung on the economic 
ladder— in order to share more 
of the fruits of an abundant 
society — that we ourselves must 
become more enterprising and 
productive. Small confectlonerys. 
barber shops and gas stations 
siiouldn't be the limits of our 
business activities. 

We would like to see the day 
when the vision of the United 
States of America as a truly 
democratic nation would be more 
of a reality than a dream; and 
when all American citizens can 
sing "America The Beautiful" 
with meaning and true sincerity. 

Whistling Against 
A Strong Wind 

By Samuel M. Truell 
Undoubtedly, the Impending 
crisis In the •'sovereign" state of 
Mississippi is one of the gravest 
chapters in the lives of our 
citizens since the War Between 
the States. 

Governor Ross Barnett's 
staunch refusal to obey federal 
court orders to enroll James 
Meredith at the University 
touched off a civil conflict which 
has made the Little Rock fiasco 
sound like a nursery rhyme. 

Because of the governor's ac- 
tions at the outset of the crisis 
and his subsequent failure to act 
rationally after it became ap- 
parent that violence would erupt, 
a foreign reporter and a juke 
box repairman have been killed. 

Perhaps Harnett should be 
charged with the murder of the 
two victims Had the governor 
not been so loud and abusive 
with advocations of defiance, the 
situation would never have be- 
come such an ugly mess. 

The chief executive of a state 
is a man of honor and prestige. 
He is a man whom many look to 
for guidance. When his con- 
stituents looked to him for direc- 
tion, the governor responded by 
sending them up a dark alley. 
On three different occasions 
Barnett journeyed from Jackson 
(state capital) to Oxford, arbi- 
trariy set himself up as registrar 
of Ole Miss and rejected Mere- 
dith's application for admission 
to the lily-white institution. 

Mr. Barnett repeatedly quoted 
the tenth amendment to the 
constitution of the United States. 
But Barnett refused to take 
notice of the fourteenth amend- 
ment to the same constitution. 

There is no room in the Inn 
for men like Ross Barnett. This 
out-of-date governor has 
exemplified a personal disregard 
for federal authority. Maybe 
Barnett himself should take a 
course in American History. If 
he does he will learn or be re- 
minded that federal supremacy 
won out over state's rights on a 
bleak day in 1865 when General 
Lee sang to General Grant. "I 
surrender, Dear." 

Because of the actions of a 
stubborn few, this great nation 
must hang its head in shame. 
Newspapers around the world 
tchoed the Mississippi crisis with 
all its ugly details. This dis- 
torted picture of this country 
will remain in the minds of 
many for a long time to come. 

The President MUST, when- 
ever the need presents itself, use 
haste In sending federal troops 
to protect the property and lives 
of the citizens of Mississippi or 
any other state in the Union. 

The prompt and determined 
action of the federal govern- 
ment to enforce federal laws 
should be a warning to South 
Carolina and Alabama, the two 
states remaining who have com- 
plete segregation. 

History has shown us that the 
doctrine of Interposition is a 
direct repudiation of the consti- 
tution. Southern leadei's and 
citizens must realize that some 
degree of integration is inevit- 
able all over the South In the 
foreseeable future.

Cuba — Dyn€itnit€ 
At Our Doorsteps 

The immediate response of the 
United States to the military 
build-up in Cuba by the Soviet 
Union has won the support of a 
large majority of the free world 

The big question now is 
whether the Soviets will try to 
force their way through the 
blockade. It is very possible that 
Cuban puppet Fidel Castro could 
start World War III, or perhaps 
it need not be numbered since 
it may be the last one. 

There seems to be little 
grounds for critism of the ac- 
tions of Pres. Kennedy and most 
observers agree that the Presi- 
dent had no alternative in the 
situation. To back down from 
our commitments to defend this 
hemisphere from Communistic 
aggression would result in a tre- 
mendous loss of prestige by the 
U. S, throughout the world. 
Russian bases on the island 
would put this country and the 
West at a great military disad- 
vantage. The Russians have re- 
peatedly declared that they will 
spread their system of govern- 
ment throughout the world and 
would stop short of nothing to 
accomplish this. But what makes 
the island of Cuba so militarily 
important to the Russians? 
Without a single missile in Cuba. 
the Russians could hit almost 
any target on the U. S, mainland 
from launching pads in the 
Soviet Union. Of course the time 
factor is to be considered, but 
is Castro and/or Cuba worth the 
risk of war to the Russians? This 
question may be answered soon.

lACP)— Instructor Bill Emer- 
son of the San Dlcgo City Col-

the last word when he lost a 
student recently. 

The college's FORTNIGHTLY 
says the instructor okayed a 
term paper on "Birth Control" 
for one of his evening students 
only to approve a drop-out slip 
the following week for the same 
married student because of her 
announced pregnancy. 

Emerson's comment on the 
subject was that her knowledge 
was either "too little or too late."

"Miller's Tropic Of 
Is Book Worth R 




By Joyce Moxley 
In the summer of 1961, 
■'Tropic of Cancer," for years 
strictly a black market book was 
prmted here in complete unex- 
purgated form, and rapidly be- 
came a best seller, "Cancer" had 
been published in Paris in 1934 
which means it was banned from 
this country for 27 years. In the 
interim between the book's ap- 
pearaiice in France and its pub- 
lication in America the author, 
Henry Miller, was elected to 
membership in the American In- 
stitute of Arts and Letters and 
gained a sizeable underground 
fan-club that emerged to the 
surface with an enormous in- 
crease in number when "Cancer" 
was made available to the public 
in hard cover and paperback 
editions by Grove Press. 

Despite a considerable delay 
of 27 years, during which the 
book had been labeled "obscenrr," 
filthy, "lewd," by the appointed 
censors of this country it is now 
recognized as a modern Ameri- 
can classic and Henry Miller is 
compared in stature by our 
critics with Melville and Whit- 
man, a recognition which must 
certainly please him. It's doubt- 
ful whether or not the 63- year- 
old Mr. Miller is overwhelmed, 
having been celebrated as a 
great author for years by the 
French and most of the other 
fine writers around. 

Just why. however, was this 
famous work of Miller's banned 
from publication here for over 
a quarter-century? We are told 
that the book contains an un- 
usual amount of obscene langu- 
age—and after reading "Cancer" 
we must admit candidly, that it 
does. Yet despite the repetitious 

gutter-slang employed through- 
out the book, the author does 
not give us the impression of ex- 
cessive preoccupation with sex 
that so many other current 
writers repell us with in their 
books. Anyone who buys "Tropic 
of Cancer" to be titillated by 
the "sexy" scenes is wasting his 
money. There's no titillatlon 
here. This book is exactly what 
many critics have claimed it to 
be a modern classic. It's also a 
hilarious comedy, Wliat many 
people call obscene in the book 
is actually funny. Mr, Miller can 
use four-letter words in such a 
way that they lose their "nasty" 
or "smutty" connotations. 

Still, at first glance the 
amount and consistency of the 
vulgar language used in the book 
is shocking and if a reader 
allows himself to read only these 
words he'll begin to feel cheated 
by this "modern classic." What 
exactly is this man Miller trying 
to prove? He may ask. By turn- 
ing to page one he can find the 
answer to that question. On the 
first page one of "Cancer" Milicr 
says, "This is not a book. This 
is libel, slander, defamation of 
character. This is not a book in 
the ordinary sense of the word. 
No, this is a prolonged insult, 
a gob of spit in the face of Arts, 
a kick in the pants to God. Man. 
Destiny, Time, Love, Beauty . , . 
what you will," 

Tropic of Cancer is about 
Miller's life in Paris, a life he 
pursued after being unable to 
find himself in America. He 
found himself so completely in 
Prance that everything that had 

been hold back erupted wildly in 
this his real book. 

Its this quality of uninhibited 
wildness that gives his book an 
alien sound to the uninitiated 
reader, and that kept it from 
publication so long in the coun- 
try he escaped from in order to 
write it. The wildness is also 
what makes it great and excit- 
ing once Miller's contagious 
exuberance of words begin to 
intoxicate the reader. 

Henry Miller is now back in 
America again. He makes his 
home in Big Sur, California, and 
another of his previously banned 
books has been published, 
"Tropic of Capicorn." The two 
"Tropics" are available in most 
colleges. Savannah State's li- 
brary has "Tropic of Cancer." 
Ths books are recommended in 
many colleges as classics to stu- 
dents, many who have chosen 
the "Tropics" as the subject of 
their theses.

Oclober. 1962 


BY 0. E. SCHOEFFLER, ESQUIRE'S Fashion Director 

Wi-itine a column on campus spnrtswcfir is always a pleasure for 
me. because of the natural affinity of young men and new ideas. 
College men are ready to experiment with their wardrobes, 
and often produce fashion trends that the whole country eventually 

The correct "when and where" of any leisurewear depends on the 
degree of formality on your campus, so no hard-and-fast general 
rules apply. But there's big fashion news for every campus this 
season, and here arc some of the newest ideas in the Fall lineup 
of leisurewear, 


plaid paUerns vie with soft plaid 
muted tones in the season's newest 
sport jackets. No hedging bets here- 
Ihcy're either big and brassy or quiet 
and' subdued-but they're all woven 
with multi-colored markings in the 
plaids. Brown lends the way as the 
fashion first color for Fall, turning 
the traditional olive to bronze and 
the basic gray to tan-gray. They'll be 
seen in the natural shoulder, 3-button 
models, with either center or side 

A TOUCH OF TWEED... Is as tra- 
ditional as football for Fall. Shetland 
tweeds in heather tones, and Harris- 
type tweeds are on the scene this 
year, particularly in brown and other 
solid colors. Both the soft-napped 
Shetlands and the wiry Harris rough- 
surfaced tweeds will naturally be 
seen in natural shoulder models. 
Some men prefer these rugged- 
looking jackets with protective and 
decorative leather patches at the 
elbows. And don't discount the blazer, 
the perennial campus favorite, still 
most popular and most correct in- 
dark blue flannel. Another "odd 
jacket" with a great following is the 
corduroy coat, styled this Fall with a 
heavy set wale (the ridging of the 
cord fabric) in natural tan and 
brown shades. 

TAKING UP THE SLACK ... in slacks silhouettes this year, 

the slim line of tapered, pleatless and beltless styles is definitely 
in. Flannels in dark shades of gray, olive and brown will coordinate 
with the new jackets, as will the increasingly popular corduroys. 
Tan twills remain a big favorite, in both lightweight cotton twill 
(chino) and the dressier diagonal weave wool of Cavalry twill. 


in control on campus. Solid color 
bright flannel vests will enrich any 
wardrobe, and new vests in plaids, 
figures and madder prints brighten 
any jacket and slacks combination. 
A smart bet is the reversible vest, 
with a big plaid on one side to match 
your jacket, a solid color flannel that 
matches your slacks on the other. 

SPOTLIGHT ON SPORT SHIRTS -Look for luxurious batiks 
and cotton prints that are soft, dark, and muted in tone ... as 
well as Fall versions of the rieb-looking India madras plaids. Solid 
color flannels in wool or blends of wool and polyesters are a definite 
contribution to colorful campus wear. Also in flannel, and cotton 
as well, the season's bright new prints are bold Tartan plaids that 
can be worn with solid color slacks and blazers. 


OVER . . . take a look at the new 
pullovers of soft, medium weight 
Shetland wool. Many are saddle- 
shoulder styled for roomier fit. Pull- 
overs in heavier, bulkier ski styling, 
in solids and the traditional ski pat- 
terns, will also be on the snowbound 
scene. Authentic Regimental colors, 
in bright, wide knitwear stripes, are 
the pattern news in sweaters this 
Fall, You'll see these Regimental 
sweaters in both pullover and the 
popular rib-knit wool or wool-blend 

THE HOBO HAT . , . is the happiest headgear to come along 
in a long time. This go-anj-where leisure hat is simpiv a flat cone 
of ultra-soft felt. You can shape or dent this epitome of casualness 
to suit your mood, whim, or manic urge, then shove it right around 
into something else, perhaps holding vour new crease with a ski 
club or fraternity pin. 

IHt Hlbn-KIStR RISES ... in popularitv every vear. particu- 
larly this Fall, in the campus boot-type in brushed'leatber, with 
2-eyeIet lacing. But choose a grained leather, plain toe Blucher 
or wing-tip to coordinate with your brown wardrobe for less 
relaxed leisurewear, 

OUT IN THE COLD?- Next month we'll take up the question of 
outerwear for Fall and Winter of 'G2-'G3. and the big issue of 
keeping warm, and well-dressed, during those long Saturday after- 
noons m the stadium. So long, until then.

nm SHI 
OF nil 

By Veronica Lynne Owens 

Autumn, with all of its obscure 
somberness, has brought with its 
entrance some of the seasons provocative and colorful 
syltcs. Contrary to the tenor of 
the season, this Fall's fashions 
are making their debut in an 
array of hues. One of the most 
popular pieces of apparel intro- 
duced this year is the bold, plaid, 
and beautiful "Tartan." What is 
it? Whafs it all about? Simply 
this, plaid woolen cloth that 
originated in the Scottish High- 
lands. This season, however, it 
migrated to the Western shores 
and has become quite a hit. 
Blouses, skirts, coats and hats 
are vailable at all of the fine 
stores in the tartan plaid. This 
ultrachic material blends har- 
moniously with solids for those 
persons that like a contrast. Any 
coed would really be a smart 
"Lassie" to Include the tartan, 
one of Fall's recent imports, in 
her wardrobe. 

Oddly enough, the tartan is 
not the only imported style to 
visit our shores this season. 
America's fashion experts have 
proven to be most susceptable 
to the foreign flair for styles this 
year. This is verified by another 
popular fabric that hails from 
India. "Madras" plaid, Madras, 
incidentally, is fine woven cloth 
that accentuates plaid played 
down a bit. All of the madras 
plaid Fall cottons are durable, 
and versatile little dresses that 
are jus t the garments for 
autumn's brisk, invigorating 

Good things come in three's 
this issue. Unfortunately, though, 
they won't come to you co-eds 
that wait. Especially if you are 
anticipating buying outfits from 
the latest and most unique 
fashion trend in years, Man, oh 
man, it's the "little boy look." 
Even the most feminine of 
"femme fatales" have fallen 
head over heels in love with the 
boys , . . look, that is. 

Because of the popular "little 
boy look." this season's co-eds 
can get away with wearing 
boyish bermudas, knickerbockers, 
hipster pants. Navy jackets, 
extra-large bulky pullovers, 
skully caps, vests (complete with 
gold-chained watch), honest to 
goodness ties, and fellows, just

In all phases of civilian and 
military life, Negroes have 
always been discriminated 
against; they are being mis- 
treated now, and it appears that 
this will continue in the future. 
though probably to a lesser de- 
gree. A Negro competing for a 
position must be far superior to 
his white opponent, or op- 
ponents, if he is to occupy such 
a position. 

People in general, especially 
those preparing themselves for 


about everything you can wear. 
we can wear better! 

In this same realm of "boy- 
land." American fashion experts 
landed in England and sent the 
jaunty, British male look to the 
fashion game American co-eds. 
Esquire checks and herringbone 
tweed materials lose their look 
of total masculinity when houses 
like Mademoiselle Modes include 
the merest hint of feminity in 
their Fall stylings. So, if you 

want to be novel, new, and 
"boyish," include some of the 
boyish styles in your Fall ward- 
robe. All it takes is a little in- 
genuity and lots of imagination 
You can start it with a tweed 
suit (short, roomy jacket, patch 
sleeves), add a paisley print lined 
jacket with matching vest, then 
mix in an open-throat shirt with 
authentic riding hat — and boy, 
oh, man. oh, man, you'll have 
that "little boy look!" 

CoUarless Coats Dominate 

Men^s Fashions 

By C, A. Phillips 

It's definitely in, it's way out, 
it's crazy but it's swinging. You 
know what I mean, the one, the 
only, the ever loving collarless 
two button cut away "shorter 
than short coat." You've seen 
several fellows on campus wear- 
ing it. This coat can be bought 
as a sports coat or as a suit. It 
comes in many shades, such as 
navy, olive, black, and beige 
which is the newer color for fall. 
Along with these colors we find 
the many desert tone shades, 
such as green-leather, blue- 
leather, sand or black and gray- 

This coat has natural 
shoulders and it's accentuated 
with white pearl buttons and the 
ever popular lap seam in the 

back. This coat is very reason- 
able as far as price is concerned 

Trousers are tapered more so 
than ever this year. The shirt is 
still that button down ivy collar, 
in solids as well as stripes, India 
madras, you know, the shirt that 
bleeds, is spreading like wild- 
fire over the fashion lights, and 
you can get one for your girl 
too, just like yours. You know, 
make like twins, 

I know your wardrobe's got a 
pair of tennis cordivans. Italian 
casuals and a pair of loafers in 
it. It's a must that you have 
several ties in the newer shades 
for fall. 

That's it for now, next issue 
we are coming out COLD, in 
other words, BIG HEAVY 

careers and seeking self-im- 
provement through education, 
are "drawn" by a vision of the 
rewards of their efforts. If such 
a vision is non-existent or nearly 
so. then it is not surprising that 
they may be lacking in zeal and 
industriousness which is so 
necessary in achievement. 

Though this is true, this is not 
sufficient reason for one of us 
to fail to do his best to reach 
his potential. Jockie Robinson, 
Ralph Bunche and George 
Washington Carver had one 
thing in common — they went 
to bat with the odds against 
them— poverty and a racially 
intolerant society. In spite of this 
each excelled in his respective 
area — they jumped the hurdles 
placed in their paths by nearly 
300 years of tradition and cir- 
James Weldon Johnson had 
this to say to Negroes regarding 
integrity in spite of racial diffi- 
culties and discrimination: 

". . , I will not allow one 
prejudiced person or one million 
to blight my life. I will not let 
prejudice or any of its attendent 
humilities and injustices bear me 
down to spiritual defeat. My 
inner life is mine, and I shall 
defend and maintain its in- 
tegrity against all the powers 
of hell." 

Most of us who come to study 
here at Savannah State received 

inferior high school training, 
which, for the most part, can be 
attributed to existing social and 
economic conditions. In spite of 
these disadvantages, we must 
have an awareness of our 
responsibilities. We form the core 
of leadership of our people and 
also our nation. We must be pre- 
pared to contribute significantly 
in all areas of endeavor. So that 
we may be more qualified to ful- 
fill the roles assigned to us, we 
must first realize that we are 
behind in the race and that the 
only way that we will gain for 
ourselves those materials, rights. 
and privileges taken for granted 
by most Americans is for us to 
run night and day and move on 
irrespressibly toward those goals 
which we have set. 

Ours is not a trifling task, 
nor will our goals be achieved 
hastily. The aboUtion of dis- 
criminatory laws and customs 
will only provide Savannah State 
students — and other Negroes — 
with the opportunity to PRO- 
fruits produced by a democratic 
society and an almost fantastic 
technological age, Negroes wil! 
be thought of as Negroes first 
and individuals last for a long 
time to come. We must be mind- 
ful of the fact that our group 
must develop a greater amount 
of economic vitality if we are to 
progress In the future.

All of the home games of the 
Savannah State football and 
basketball teams will be played 
on the campus this year. Last 
year the team played in the 
city's ultra-modern Bacon Park 
Memorial Stadium^quite a con- 
trast to the SSC athletic field. 

Of course It would be kind of 
ridiculous to play the games out 
at Bacon Park and only a hand- 
ful of students and supporters 
sliow up to root for the Tigers. 
Savannahians will support foot- 
ball — if it is pretty good football. 
The large attendance at local 
high school games will bear this 
out. Most of the spectators aren't 
students, either, 

If Savannaii State would field 
a team of the Southern U., 
Grambiing. FAMU or A&T Col- 
lege calibre, then football could 
become a money-making propo- 
sition for the school. Some peo- 
ple say that they'd rather watch 
a game on TV than one of the 
Tiger's grid contests. 

You can bet your bottom 
dollar that the bothersome sand 
gnats won't complain about the 
games being played on campus. 
They'll have a field day every 

If any game should be played 
at Bacon Park then the home- 
coming game should. The half- 
time activities, the fact that we 
will have many distinguished 
guests and alumni present and 
the large contingent of Clark 
fans wiio will follow their team, 
warrant the use of the city's 
facilities rather than the SSC 
athletic field — at least for that 
one game. If we use "Tiger's 
Field" then the large homecom- 
ing crowd might not be as large 
next year at homecoming time. 

Bobby Mitchell Spearheads 

Bobby Mitchell, the Cleveland 
Brown cast-away half back, has 
put new life into the Washing- 
ton Redskins football team. 
Chiefly through Mitchell's superb 
ball-carrying, the 'Skins' are 
sitting on top of the NFL's East- 
ern Division with a respectable 
4-1-2 record. One of these wins 
came at the expense of his 
former team, the Cleveland 

For the past several years Sa- 
vannah State has been missing 
out on local football talent. The 
three local high schools have 
produced two state champs in 
years past and also some top 
football players. Players like 
Solomon Brannen, James Ger- 
man, James Palmer and Eddie 
Fennell played at Tompkins and 
are now playing at Morris Brown 
in Atlanta, Henry Kelley who 
graduated from Beach and 
played at Johnson C. Smith Univ. 
Freddie Woodson, Johnny 
Holmes and Capt Burney Adams 
were all high school standouts 
who were picked up by Florida 
A & M University after they 
finished their high school 

All of the above players ex- 
pressed a desire to attend Savan- 
nah State at one time or 
another, but for some unknown 
reason they all got away. 

SSC Cagers Begin 
Pre-Seasou Drills 

The 1962-63 Tigers basketball 
team has already started pre- 
season drills. 

Although the Tigers lost five 
lettermen from last year's team, 
the locals are expected to hold 
their position atop their confer- 
ence and other basketball circles 
in this area. 

Gone are the nationally known 
five "sizzling seniors," The 
quintet, composed of Redell Wal- 
ton. Ira Jackson, Steve Kelley. 
Willie Tate, and James Dixon

against 29 set-backs in a period 
of four years. Missing also will 
be Theodore Wright who has 
decided he will watch from the 
stands after 27 years of coaching. 

But the story is not all gloomy 
The Tigers still have center

(Sonny) Liston was over Peo- 
ple predicted that it would be a 
quick one. but most boxing ex- 
perts said that fans at ringside 
in Chicago and those watching 
on closed-circuit TV should see 
at least four or five rounds of 
boxing for their money. Listen's 
smashing punching demoted 
Floyd from the rank of a lightly- 
taken heavyweight champ to 
that of a former heavyweight 
titleholder even more lightly- 

When Floyd was knocked out 
by Ingemar Johannsen in his 
first bout with the Swede, there 
was the question of Floyd under- 
rating his opponent. This wasn't 
the case with Sonny. Although 
sportswriters predicted the 
champ would probably retain 
his crown, the odds-makers 
picked Liston as the best bet. 
Patterson did not take this bout 
as just another prize-fight — he 
trained for it. If you listen 
closely enough you may hear 
someone say that Floyd was too 
tense and that he will be the 
first man to win it back twice. 

The two fighters somewhat 
resembled David and Goliath, 
only the giant throwing the sock 
that felled Floyd like a rock.

Physical Educttlion Majors 
Participate in Fitness Program 

By Elmer Thomas 

Twenty physical education 
majors at Savannah State Col- 
lege are engaged in a "pilot 
study'" physical fitness program. 

Participation in the program 
by Savannah State has prompted 
the American Association of 
Health. P. Ed, and Recreation 
to present to the college a Cer- 
tificate of Recognition for the 
role played so far in the project. 
This group, the AAHP & R, is a 
division of the National Educa- 
tion Association. 

The twenty students have be- 
gun the test and upon com- 
pletion they will serve as in- 
structors and assist in adminis- 
tering the test to other college 
students. The testing program 
has been officially adopted and 
recommended by President Ken- 
nedy's Council on Youth Fitness 
and is especially usable for the 
screening of individual weak- 
nesses, evaluation of program 
quality, and periodic testing of 
Individuals for progress. The 
battery of tests consists of pull- 
ups for men and modified pull- 
ups for women, sit-ups, shuttle 
run, stand broad jump. 50 yard 
dash, Softball throw for distance, 
and the 600 yard run-walk. 

In the aquatics test, the sub- 
ject must swim 15 feet using his 
choice of strokes: he must jump 
Into water over his head, swim 
15 yards, turn around, and swim 
half the distance back. He then

must turn on his back; rest for 
one-half minute, then turn to 
the usual position and swim 
back to the starting point 
Finally he must swim 100 yards 
against time. The performance 
is graded and scored according 
to the national norms for col- 
lege men and women. 

These tests are designed to 
measure arm strength, ab- 
dominal strength, speed and 
agility, leg power, arm power 
and endurance. 

The data secured may be used 
to counsel students concerning 
health, nutrition, and exercise 
programs They also may be used 
as a guide to the selection of 
physical education courses- 

On Thursday morning during 
the regular all-college assembly 
program. Mrs. Ella Fisher was 
the main speaker. She spoke to 
the audience on the subject, 
each person evaluate his fitness 
quotient, she elaborated on four 
facets of fitness — physical, 
mental, social and moral. She 
admonished the audience that 
each facet must be considered 
in order to assess accurately his 
total fitness. 

At the close of her remarks on 
physical fitness, Dr. Raymond 
W- Hopson, chairman of the de- 
partment of health, physical 
education and recreation, pre- 
sented to President W. K. Payne 
the Certificate of Recognition 
that was awarded to the college.

The Board of Regents of the 
University System of Georgia 
Sponsors a program whereby 
Georgia residents may qualify 
for scholarships at any one of 
the institutions of higlier edu- 
cation within the University 
System, These scholarships were 
established for the purpose of 
assisting students of superior 
ability who need financial aid 
in order to attend college. Each 
college handles Its own applica- 
tions and the scholarship pro- 
gram is administered by each 
college in accordance with 
policies established by the Board 
of Regents. 

Regents' State Scholarships 
are granted on a one year basis. 
A recipient may re-apply in suc- 
ceeding years provided he re- 
mains academically qualified, 
has continuing need, and the 
program continues to be ade- 
quately financed. 

Recipients of Regents' State 
Scholarships are expected, upon 
completion of their programs of 
study, to reside in the State of 
Georgia and to engage in work 
for which they were prepared 
through scholarship aid for a 
period of one year for each 
$1,000.00 of scholarship aid re- 
ceived. Recipients of Regents' 
State Scholarships who fail to 
comply with this requirement 
will be obligated to repay the 
amount of scholarships that they 
received together with interest

Our School Spirit Could Be Better 

Although there may be room 
for criticism of the Savannah 
State College football team, they 
are representative of our school 
and should receive the en- 
couragement and support of the 
entire college family, While it is 
not customry for this newspaper 
to editorialize on the athletic 
program here, we feel that with 
the basketball season about to 
begin, and in view of the fact 
that the team, for the most part, 
will be made up of players who 
are relatively unseasoned, and 
giving due respect to the 
opinions and predictions of 
qualified observers, we solicit the 
support of each student whether 
our team meets victory or defeat. 
Performances of our basketball 
team this season may not be as 
brilliant as in past years. 

It seems also that the attitude 
and interest of students in other 
phases of student life is far from 
being desirable. To cite particu- 
lar instances where this is 
noticeable, we would not have to 
go beyond the confines of this 
publication's newsroom. Students 
and student organizations are 
usually concerned with getting 
news releases published, but not 
to the extent that they will sub- 
mit information before each 

deadline. Although an organiza- 
tion may be last to release news 
items to this newspaper, that 
same organization is usually first 
to criticize this paper for not 
Including its articles in the pub- 
lication. There is room for more 
co-operation along these lines. 

More regards should be given 
OUR library materials. Under no 
circumstances should a student 
destroy or steal library material. 
We should remember that a 
copying service is available in 
the library at a low cost. Every 
dollar spent to replace books is 
a dollar that could have been 
spent to purchase new books. 

We cannot stop with the stu- 
dents. In some cases administra- 
tors and faculty members them- 
selves are guilty of possessing an 
indifferent attitude toward stu- 
dents and what they may be at- 
tempting to do. Perhaps the at- 
titudes of students and teachers 
are resultant or partially result- 
ant of each other, but even so, 
we should take the necessary 
steps to remedy this situation 
within and among ourselves. If 
this happens, the work of both 
student and professor would cer- 
tainly become more profitable 
and enjoyable. 

WliislliiiQ Against \ Strong Wind 

Attorney Leroy R. Johnson, of 
Atlanta, will be the first Negro 
to sit in the Georgia Senate since 
reconstruction days. Johnson 
won the Democratic nomination 
of the 38th District when he de- 
feated four white candidates 
who opposed him. Officials of 
the Democratic Party were en- 
joined from conducting the 
Senate Primary on a county- 
wide basis as propiised by the 
General Assembly. 

In the General Election of 
November 6. another Negro, T. 
M, Alexander, also from Atlanta, 
opposed Johnson unsuccessfully, 
and Johnson was assured a seat 
in the 54-member Senate. 

Johnson as a member of the 
Georgia Senate will not change 
the course of politics in this state 
significantly insofar as legisla- 
tion is concerned, but at least 
his election might be the start- 
ing point of an era of greater 
representation by Negroes on 
school boards, city council and 

other bodies. It seems that the 
Board of Regents of the Univer- 
sity System of Georgia should 
have some Negro members. 

Without the bloc-vote, scan- 
dalized and criticized by those 
who fear the potential political 
might of Negroes, neither John- 
son nor the Republican Alex- 
ander would have been in the 
race. An example of bloc-voting 
in reverse is the flocking of white 
voters to the polls in August of 
1961 to defeat a Negro candidate 
for the position of Clerk of 
Superior Court of Chatham 
County, Georgia, 

Any student at Savannah 
State College who is not regis- 
tered to vote in his or her home 
county, and who does not vote 
in each and every election siiould 
remove himself from this insti- 
tution or remedy the situation 
because he has failed in one of 
the primary objective of his edu- 
cational preparation, which is 
specifically, to become an en- 
lightened citizen.

Ban the Books or 
Ban the Ban 

lACPi —Deluged with letters 
to the editor. THE OHIO UNI- 
VERSITY POST, Athens, ex- 
panded on its editorial position 
concerning book banning: 

Athens has what could be a 
very powerful publication ordi- 
nance which prohibits anyone 
from having or selling any 
literature which Is obscene. 

The ordinance went Into effect 
in March. 1961, but the only time 
it has been enforced was to keep 
"Tropic of Cancer" off the news- 
stands a year ago. 

Editor's Note: A review of 
author Henry Miller's "Tropic of 
Cancer" appeared in the October 
edition of the Tiger's Roar. 

Our argument is that there 
are many obscene paperbacks 
being sold on at least two news- 
stands in Athens, and yet no 
attempt has been make by the 
police to ban these books. 

This, in effect, means that the 
police are acting as censors 
whenever they feel something is 
obscene. As one letter writer put 
it. Police Captain Joseph Mc- 
Bride is now in the position to 
judge whether a book is litera- 
ture or obscenity. No one should 
have the power of censorship. 

This also means that, as one 
letter writer said, the police 
could keep "For Whom the Bell 
Tolls," "To Kill A Mockingboard" 
or any other piece of literature 
off the newsstands by simply 
calling them obscene. 

Thus, Ordinance 1532 could 
easily become a tool for the 
Athens police to use at will. 
Either Athens should enforce the 
law all the time or remove it as 
an ordinance. 

Also many persons have ques- 
tioned the POST'S right to call 
any literature obscene. Ap- 
parently tliese persons have 
never read the contents of the 
paperbacks we listed.

A Blind Man Wlio Conid See 

A student who resided in Ohio 
State University's Baker Hall. I 
do not recall his name, was 
crossing a street on the campus, 
when I noticed, because of the 
cane that he carried, that he 
could not see. From time to time 
I saw him crossing the campus 
on his way to classes or in the 
dining room of the dormitory. 
He was enrolled at the univer- 
sity to improve himself and so 
that he might become a more 
resourceful and better citizen. 

The man was up against tre- 
mendous odds, because to suc- 
ceed as a student at the univer- 
sity was and is no trifling matter 
for persons without handicaps. 
to say nothing of a sightless per- 
son who had to study the same 
information and materials as 
other students. Maybe he was 
enrolled in a special program, 
but even so. he must be admired 
for making this attempt to im- 
prove himself 

Somehow the student had ac- 
quired a great deal of courage-

Pi-ecocious writers are rare; 
precocity in the arts is usually 
found in musicians, mainly be- 
cause to write intelligently one 
must have had some experience 
with life. The feeling for music 
is a more direct and primitive 
perception than the feeling for 
words which usually comes only 
after some maturity, when one is 
sophisticated enough to relate 
living experience to one's par- 
ticuar language. 

Yet in the last decade or so, 
it seems the young writer who 
is both published and talented 
is becoming more prevalent. 
Reasons for this can perhaps be 
found in the great emphasis our 
culture places on youth and the 
early initiation of young people 
into the ways of adult life. 

The vogue of the young writer 
first came to my attention 
several years ago when I read in 
a national magazine about a 
French girl, barely eighteen, who 
had written a book, Bonjour 
Triestesse, iGood Morning. Sad- 
ness) which had become "an 
instantaneous best-seller on both 
sides of the Atlantic." This 
novelette ( about 128 pages ) 
proved to be nearly everything 
the reviews claimed. "Shocking, 
amoral," yet "brilliant, sensi- 
tive," — it remained only for 
Mil. Sagan to write a slightly 
bigger and better book to 
consolidate her position as 
an important literary figure. 
Another book did appear shortly. 
A Certain Smile was not a bigger 
or better book, but still it wasn't 

a disappointment. The heroine 
of Bonjour. Cecile, became Domi- 
nique, heroine of A Certain 
Smile, with little change in 
character or charm except for a 
slight increase of cynicism, and 
once again Mile. Sagan suc- 
ceeded in giving what might 
have seemed puerile adventures 
depth and humour. 

It seemed her forte lay just 
in the limitations that she had 
imposed upon herself — the 
novelette literary form and the 
first person narrative. In a few 
brief chapters she was able to 
achieve her best effects; the 
themes of physical love and 
pleasure that she based her 
works upon were too slender to 
support longer works, and the 
candid musings of her gamln- 
like heroines had more intrigue 
wlien expressed in the first per- 
son, "I would rather deny myself 
my moods of mysticism or 
despair than give up my in- 
dulgencies." (Bonjour Tristesse.) 
Readers of Sagan looked for- 
ward to the gradual expansion 
of her adolescent heroines into 
mature characters; it seemed 
possible that her precocious, per- 
ceptive power would enable her 
to develop into a major literary 

Her third novel appeared, 
Those Without Shadows, in 
which the author did away with 
the first-person narrative, sub- 
stituting a collection of vaguely 
dicpicated characters in a brief 
(Canlimied on I'nge H) 

that, he decided to try and get 
it for himself. 

We must try and obtain things 
for ourselves too. We as college 
students must be sure that the 
degree or degrees we receive are 
meaningful to the extent that 
we are reasonably proficient in 
our chosen areas of concentra- 
tion and have at least a genera! 
knowledge of the world about us. 
As we set our eyes on the up- 
hill road ahead, we can see that 
it Is quite different from the 
almost - level, happy - go - lucky 
path over which we have already 
trod, Competition for employ- 
ment is, and will be moreso in 
the future, increasingly keener 
in all fields. Colleges and uni- 
versities are turning out gradu- 
ates in record numbers. Althougli 
it appears that government and 
industry are able to absorb more 
engineers and scientists than 
are available, and giving due 
consideration to the fact that 
'■there's always room for a good 
man in any field," the supply ol 
average, below - average, and 
absolutely incompetent person.- 
is so large that any person who 
insists on joining these rank.s 
can only be guaranteed a very 
small slice of the economic pie, 
if any at all. 

The teaching profession, in 
which so many of our graduates 
are employed, won't be as easy to 
enter in the future as in years 
past. A certain score on the 
National Teachers Examination 
is a requirement for employment 
in Florida Schools. Most colleges 
stipulate that their candidates 
for graduation make a certain 
mark on similar examinations if 
tliey are to receive a degree. 
Teaching and administrative 
jobs on the high school and col- 
lege level will carry bigger 
salaries and more advantages In 
the future because education to- 
morrow will have to do more to 
compete with government and 
industry for the well-trained and 
competent. If one can live in 
Georgia cheaper than In Indiana 
(all factors considered) and if 
Indiana ranks as one of our 
leading states educationally, 
then an average teacher from 
that state might be in contention 
for the same teaching assign- 
ment for which you may apply. 
If this be the case, how would 
you rate scholastically with a 
graduate of Michigan State or 
Indiana University? 

The only thing we can do is 
spend more time in serious study 
rather than cheating ourselves 
of the educational advantages 
provided for us here. We are at 
a disadvantage in more ways 
than one and this is no time for 
complacency. We should com- 
plain about our situation when 
this becomes necessary, but at 
the same time we must move 
forward on our own INERTIA. 

Some men are like pyramids, 
which are very broad where they 
touch the ground, but grow 
narrow as they reach the sky.

Campus Spotlight 

By Gwendolyn Buchanan 

The spotlight of this edition 
of the Tiger's Roar is focused on 
the following personalities at 
Savannah State College. 

Delores Bowens, the first of 
these personalities, is a graduate 
of Monitor High School in her 
home town, Fitzgerald. Georgia. 
She is current- 
ly a Junior at 
State College, 
majoring i n 

She is affili- 
ated with the 
following ac-

as secretary of the Junior Class. 
Her associates think of her as 
an ideal co-ed. an intelligent 
young lady that has a promising 

She is a charming and soft 
spoken person whose personal 
philosophy is "Treat others with 
respect if you want to be 

Some persons tend to take life 
as it comes or think of life as a 
routine. Delores has a different 
opinion of life, "I think that life 
is just what a person makes it. 
It can be full and fruitful, drab 
wonderful experiences or it can 
be as incomplete as a half built 

I asked Delores about her 
opinion of men in general. She 
paused — laughed — and said. 
"Men are changeable, sometime 
true, many times untrue, sincere, 
stubborn, boring and fun; yet

series of episodes that bareb* 
made it to the end of the 125- 
page book. It was obvious that 
she had attempted to overstep 
her limitations and broaden her 
scope as a writer. It was also 
obvious that she had failed to do 
anything of the sort. Her stock 
fell quite low in the literary 

Still, traces of her earlier 
talent remained and when

love — an unfaithful mature 
lover, and an unhappily smitten 
young man, too young for her^ — 
make up the main elements of 
the plot. 

Although Brahms seems much 
too contrived and artificial as a 
whole, it still succeeds in being 
entertaining and at times one is 
surprised by a wholly originial 
and poignant paragraph that re- 
minds the reader of the earlier 
work of Mile. Sagan. One can 
see in Brahms a definite indica- 
tion of maturity, not a really 
good book, but one can't help 
thinking the hext one will be-

of the French author have 
another book with which to 
judge her literary excellence.

here and after reading the 
serialization, that magazine 
seems eminently suite to feature

fidelity and adultery. Mile. Sagan 
is no longer the young wise 
prodigy of yesteryear. Being well 
past the age of precocity (born 
in 1935) she seems to have done 
an about face and is now re- 
trogressing as a writer. Wonder- 

Her favorite relaxation is 
listening to music. She likes to 
create dances and is always 
willing to teach her new steps 
to friends when they come 
around. In her leisure time she 
writes to pen pals. Her favorite 
television program is the Nurses. 
"Make the most of your col- 
lege days, socially as well as 
scholastically, for a well-rounded 
person is just as important to 
society as the bookworn," is her 
advice to others.

HJs fellow students think of 
him as being a good example of 
a typical young man. He is easy 
to get along with and is very 
understandable. "He'll be a

spends his leisure time reading 
novels and dancing. 

He is a very interesting and

asked what changes at Savan-

if he were President, he replied. 
"I would try to develop a

A Touch ol" Mink Adds 
Distinction And Elegance 

By Veronica Lynne Owens 
Whether you say I'hiver. der 
winter, or elinvlerno, winter is 
definitely here! And fur is 
definitely the thing to be worn 
this winter. The most popular 
fur pieces being worn are mink, 
chinchilla, ermine, fox, beaver, 
and raccoon- This season fur 
pieces adorn dressy coats, sport 
coats, suits and jackets- And to 
top It off hats are even being 
shown in fur material with 
matching hand muffs. Mink and 
imitations of it are even daintily 
attached to after-five dresses to 
add a "touch of elegance." 

Another new but popular 
fashion trend this winter is the 
vest. Some designers tab them 
weskits. Regardless of what you 
call them, they're smart, col- 
legiate, and saucy. The popular 
vests are being stiown in leather. 
Velveteen, suede and, of course. 
various woolen and corduroy 
fabrics. These smart little vests 
should be a "must" on every 
coed's fashion list this winter. 
Why? Because they're guaran- 
teed by designers to add zest, 
zing, and zip to any wardrobe. 
Other fashion apparel that 
rate high this winter are the 
coordinate sets. Lovely as always, 

these coordinates come In 
various dyed-to-match colors. 
They are just about the most 
versatile items on the fashion 
list. Those of you with a flair for 
blending will like the matched 
coordinates. And those that have 
a yen for contrast may mix 
either part of the original set 
with other wearing apparel. The 
latest coordinates are rather 
snazzy with their unique "in- 
tarsia" designs. Whatever your 
choice may be, you're in for a 
fabulous wardrobe if your 
fashion choice happens to be co- 
ordinates sets. These sets arc 
available in wool, orlon, angora, 
and mohair. A mix or match 
switch gives you a new outfit. 

Many outfits for the busy col- 
lege coed have been shown in 
suede material this winter. The 
most popular in the group are 
full-length coats, blazers, hand- 
bags, jumper dresses and belts. 
But wait, that isn't all. Those 
of you inclined to be a wee bit 
individualistic and different will 
simply adore the suede earbobs 
and bracelets to match your out- 
fits. By whom? Why Core, and 
Trifari, naturally, - - . 

Accessories of the month: 
Headbands (cloth and leather), 

Leaves of Gold (exquisite pins 
by Coro and Trifari). 

Yes, this winter's "fashion- 
logue" seems to be just what the 
coed ordered. But the next 
colunm promises to present some 
even more desirable and appeal- 
ing styles. So. until the next

Ill Defense of the 
(iiaiil Handhag 

By Gwendolyn Buchanan 

A young lady walked into a 
variety store to purchase a very 
necessary article. She reached 
into her handbag for her change 
purse. She knew that it was in 
there, but she just couldn't put 
her hands on It. She began to 
search through the maze of col- 
lected Items in the purse. She 
fumbled through the "junk" for 
more than five minutes. Out 
came lipstick, shades, hanker- 
chief, pointless pencil, nail 
polish, lotion, powder sponge, 
bobby pins, and at last — the 
cliange purse. 

There's a young lady seated 
in class waiting very nervously 
to take an examination. She had 
begun to relax before the in- 
structor, while passing out exam 
papers, stumbled over the long, 
black bag In the aisle. 

Fellows are usually gentlemen. 
They'll twist an ankle running to 
open a door for a lady with one 
hand full of books. Often they 
are almost knocked off their feet 
by the swaying bag— That's the 
thanks they get. 

These experiences are prob- 
ably familiar to iftost young 

I Imagine fellows wonder why 
girls won't carry smaller bags. 
The smaller bags occupy less 
space; they are easier to carry, 
and as In the case of the 
stumbling professor, they are 
less hazardous. 

Well fellows, Its like this. A 
lady could hardly go armed 
against any eventuality (almost 
any eventuality) with a "load- 
llmlted" two-by-four handbag. 
There are times when a girl may 
need a personal item such as a 
tube of hand cream, lipstick, 
bobby pins or lotion. Such "ex- 
tensive equipment" calls for a 
bag with a reasonably large 

The average bag usually 
weighs less than three pounds — 
even when Its loaded, 

So the next time you feel prone 
to issue one of your wisecracks 
about using women in the 
weightlifting competition In the 
1964 Olympic Games — think 
twice — because they (hand- 
bags) might not be so heavy 
after all.

C'est La Vie

ESQUIRE'S Fashion Director 

When thatwintry wind whistles across the campus or through the 
stadium, there's no iicecl for you to get that left-out-in-the-cold 
feeling. Your new outerwear, your "fashion front" in Fall and 
Winter, can be both warm and fashionable. 

Fashions in outerwear, particularly those styled for campus, are 
more functional and individually styled than many other areas 
of a man's wardrobe-and this year's new coats are no exception 
to that glittering generality. 


popularity, new pile linings, usually 
of fur-like acrylic fibers, provide ex- 
cellent light insulation with a lofty, 
comfortable feel. They're covered by 
single-breasted shells of processed 
Dacron and cotton. Knee-length Sta- 
dium Coats, with button fronts and 
large pockets, come in poplin or 
gabardine weaves (smooth, close- 
woven fabrics). A removable hood 
for blustery days completes the pic- 
ture of fashion and warmth. 

SALT SEA SPRAY . . . was 

the test for the rugged, dark-blue 
denim coat. Adapted from a classic 
boating jacket, this climate-control- 
ler is of water-repellent, processed 
denim, with a brilliant scarlet lining 
for warmth. Masculine metal hooks 
and rings across the front shut out 
the icy blasts, yet set-in sleeve and 
front-yoke styling keeps this wea- 
therproof roomy even when hooked 
right up to the military collar and 
center-zippered hood. Utility is

sized patch pockets.

this season's comeback favorite. Toggle rope closures are the dis- 
tinctive trademark of this large and bulky coat, and you'll see it in 
tan and camel's hair tones of brown-this Fall's fashion first color. 
This above-the-knee coat is warm, practical, and ideal for campus 
and stadium wear. 

SCHUSS FUSS . . . Young men on skis have made skiwear 
fashion news on campus. And new this year are zippered jackets 
in just-below-the-waist ski styles. They're quilted for warmth, 
and faced with water-repellent nylon and processed cotton. Solids 
in olive, black, tan and navy will be the most popular colors, and 
some models will feature detachable hoods.

this Fall. Raincoats will be seen 
either in natural tan or off-white, or 
in very dark olive or black, Raglan

men. and zip-in linings make these 
campus favorites a good het well into

Mr. Benjamin F. Lewis, who 
spoke on the Pre-Thanksgiving 
Program at Savannah State Col-

the observance of Thanksgiving 
can be traced further back than 
the first such celebration by the

that the Greeks had their special

Editorial Comments 

The holiday season will be niJed with celebration and joy- 
making, Oui- homes will be decorated appropiiately. Few of us will 
be lacking adequate food, shelter or clothing. 

But several hundred miles to the south of us. men are not so 
fortunate. Several thousands of miles to the east and west of us. 
men still hunger for what is supposed to be an inherent right of 
all hujuanity— freedom and liberty- 

Perhaps right down the street from you. maybe next door, there 
live those who are materially depraved. There is a family of "have- 
nots." the head of which earns a good salary at the plant, or post 
office, or as a truck driver, but somewhere between his place of 
employment on payday he makes a check-sapping stop There are 
the slums. They breed crime and disease. 

Twenty miles from Savannah, Valdosta. Macon or Brunswick, 
there is the Ignorant tenant farmer applying 18th century farming 
techniques in an era of 20th century agriculture. There "are those 
who are born blind, crippled or feeble-minded. Perhaps they are 
shown more pity than the rest since the odds were against them 
from the start. 

We send thousands of youths, along with more mature persons, 
to the south of us. to the east and west of us. hoping that their 
presence will gain the friendship of foreign peoples— to prevent or 
halt Communistic exploit^but more important, to save our own 
necks. This is good diplomacy. From all indications it's working. 

But What about down the street, or next door? Or in the hills 
and on the plains of Georgia? 

Satisfactory, or nearly so. programs for care of the aged, blind, 
crippled, and feeble-minded are in operation. No one will complain 
about the use of his involuntary contribution to that big com- 
munity drive for that purpose, but what about the oversized family 
m the next block? . . . Why should part of your hard-earned money 
be handed out to those who are not honestly trying to make a living 
for themselves? 

Ask yourself the following question: "Why must a teacher 
hammer information into the heads of members of a freshman 
class when he knows that the vast majority of them will not stay 
in college long enough to graduate, and of those left, only one or

A West Point graduate teaches

of Social Sciences and member

program will be heard on ABC 
radio stations the following Sun- 
day iDecember 23rdi at 3;00 p.m. 
(EST). (Consult station sched- 
ules for accurate local times.) 

Colonel Jordan believes it is 
vital that future Army officers 
have a broad understanding of 
the political and economic prob- 
lems of foreign countries. He de- 
signed the course in "Problems 
of the Developing Nations." 
which the Academy added to its 
curriculum last year. In addition 
to reading and discussing the 
material, the students hear lec- 
tures by visiting authorities and 
have frequent contact with for- 
eign students. This gives the 
cadets insight into the political 
systems of the developing na- 
tions in Asia, Africa, and Latin 
America. Colonel Jordan will be 
seen conducting a class of cadets 
in the developing nations course 
on the program. 

Colonel Jordan is also charged 
with the administration of a 
unique project called SCUSA 
(Student Conference on United 
States Affairs) which brings 
about two hundred students 
from other colleges and univer- 

sities to West Point each year 
for three-and-a-half days. The 
program gives the students the 
opportunity to participate in 
stimulating round-table discus- 
sions and to hear talks by out- 
standing statesmen. The Honor-

Could It be because the teacher couldn't or didn't have the 
opportunity to separate the "Doers" from the "Do-nothings"' This 
cou d be the answer. Some of the people who received a small per- 
centage of your resources could turn out to be good citizens One or 
two of them might turn out to be quite outstanding. Maybe its 
worth It. Maybe the Peace Corps program will be worth the money 
and time. 

Students from Savannah State along with those from high 
schools could form a domestic task toi-ce here, and go through the 
streets of Savannah instructing the ignorant and counseling the 
doubtful. They could arrange a program of out-of-class help tor 
junior high and high school students. Such action might induce 
more high school graduates to come to college. Such a program 
could graw in magnitude and proportion throughout this state 
and nation. 

Let us resolve to do something of this nature during 1963 and 
if we meet any degree of success, next year this time we can feel 
proud of having made a noteworthy and significant contribution to 
our fellowman — and ourselves.

How to Avoid That 
[lu-istmas Tie-Up 

Many people could turn out 
sinarter-looking Christmas pack- 
ages in far less time than they 
now require— simply by avoiding 
the mistakes that have many 
Einateurs tied up in knots. 

Five of the most common goofs 
have been pinpointed by Mary 
Papp. who designs many of the 
Satin Glo ribbons and Trophy 
gift wrappings sold in variety 
scores across the country- See 
how her wrap-up of errors tallies 
v,-ith yours! 

Not organizing the job. Failing 
to collect all gift wrap materials 
in one spot — a smooth solid sur- 
face with plenty of working 
space— will result in frazzled 
nerves as well as frayed ribbons. 
Before you begin, stock your 
work area with: gift papers, 
tissue paper and perhaps some 
cardboard, ribbons, gift tags and 
any ornaments you plan to use. 
"sticky stuff i tape, sealing 
cement or seals), sharp scissors. 
Not "measurine: up." Don't 
wait till wrapping day to find 
out that your gift paper won't 
i-over big packages. Buy "insur- 
ance" ahead of time. Wary of 
skimpy-looking packages, people 
often use more paper than they 
need— not realizing that they are 
creating an equally ungainly 
effect, especially at the corners. 
Always measure the paper before 
cutting. Allow enough so that 
the width of the gift wrap will 
overlap the package by no more 
than an inch. The ends should 
extend to just slightly more than 
half its thickness. 

Using the wrong wrapping 
technique. Avoid a sloppy, 
amateurish look by centering 
the paper design on the front of 
the box, and fastening the paper 
at the back. To make a clean 
edge, fold the overlapping end in 
about half an inch. Fold each 
aide of the ends in neat creases 
at the edges of the box, then 
fold in flaps at top and bottom 
of the box. 

Picking the wrong wrappings. 
The gift paper you use is a big 

factor in the all-important "first 
impression" your gift makes. 
Don't skimp on quality, but 
don't feel that you have to spend 
a fortune; some of the best- 
grade gift wraps are sold in 
variety stores. An embossed de- 
sign lends distinction to a 'solid- 
color wrap. 

When choosing patterns, keep 
both the giftee and the gift in 
mind: don't put a big pattern 
on a small package, and don't 
use a dainty design for a man's 
gift. Something like Trophy or 
Excello Brand print, definite 
without being gaudy, would look 
well on most packages. 

Don't pick a ribbon the same 
color as the dominant color in 
the paper. Instead, match the 
ribbon to another color in the 
paper design. 

Getting lied up in knots with 
bows. Want a really profes- 
sional-looking bow? Buy one! 
Stick-on bows in numerous 
beautiful versions are avilable in 
variety stores; Satin Glo makes 
some in geometric flower-like 

If you're in a do-it-yourself 
mood, here's a pretty way to tie 
a fancy bow. First make a loop 
between the thumb and first 
finger, keeping the ribbon flat. 
A second loop is made by bring- 
ing the ribbon from the opposite 
side. Additional loops can be 
made the same way and tied in 
the middle to form a multiple 

You'll be making no mistake 
if you follow Miss Rapp's sug- 
gestions for some imaginative 
"extras" that will really wrap up 
your reputation as a smooth 
Santa. For instance: to a lady's 
package, attach a holiday 
corsage that can be worn after- 
wards. At the dime store, you 
can buy ribbon clusters that 
make lovely seasonal corsages. 
worn just "as is." Kids will ap- 
preciate tie-on toys from the 
dime store. Many stick-on bows 
come with miniature decorations 
already attached: pipes for the 
menfolk, dolls for the ladies big 
and little, miniature Christmas 
symbols for one and all. 

As a co.mplete departure, you 
might want to forego the tradi- 
tional ribbon to bind a few 
packages with gay colored yarns 
with pasted-on rickrack 
braid ... or even with a strip of 
handsome wallpaper! 

But be sure there are no 
strings attached— for if you've 
done a good job. the eager re- 
cipient of your prize package 
may not be able to heed a "Don't 
Open Till Christmas" warning!

The celebration of Christinas is well established in the life oE 
all Ameiicans- It is unique in many ways. No other occasion 
furnishes the potential for good during the entire year. It is at 
this time that the thought of others over-rides many of the selfish 
interests which dominate other parts of the year. No other oc- 
casion contributes so much to family life and the rejuvenation of 
values developed within the home. 

Students will be making their way home with memories and 
anticipations that gladden each heart according to the respective 
homes from which they come. Christmas to the college student 
provides opportunity for thinlting, planning, and evaluation. During 
this recess from college, students often secure work to help pay 
expenses for the remainder of the school year. In other Instances, 
there is spare time which may be utilized to Improve one's knowledge 
and understanding of subject matter areas which have been or 
are to be covered during the school year. Many of them read books, 
write papers, continue experiments, and travel. The reunions with 
families and friends will be assigned only a part of this extra 
time. The purposes and plans which students have developed for 
themselves will receive additional implementation. The continuous 
inquires of friends and loved ones concerning one's progress and 
his plans for the future keep the student ever aware that much is 
expected of him. Parents, relatives, and friends express in many 
ways their faith in each student to succeed in the studies and pro- 
gram of education which he has elected to pursue. 

The celebration of Christmas for 1962 provides the basis for 
heartfelt thanks as one thinks of national and world conditions. Only 
through the realization of the meaning of Christ does our civilization 
continue to exist. There is further hope that through Him civiliza- 
tion can continue to exist and make progress. The men and women 
enrolled In our colleges and universities are faced with the challenge 
to initiate to Inspire, and to develop the mind and will of the 
modern world to overcome the barriers which threaten the civiliza- 
tions of our world and time.

The tradition of giving gifts at Christmas dates back to the 
Three Wise Men, who suddenly appeared out of the desert bearing 
sold, frankincense and myrrh for the new-born Infant at Jerusalem. 
Smce then, the act of givmg has been shrouded in an air of mvsterv 
that surrounds both giver and gift, and Christmas gift-givers' have 
appeared and disappeared mysteriously throughout history. As for 
Santa Claus. he had his origins in dozens of countries. Asia Minor 
Italy. Africa. Holland, Russia and Sweden. But it was from the 
Vnited States that he re-crossed the Atlantic, as Father Christmas 
in England and Pere Noel in France. (Drawing courtesy of J C

sleeveless, halter-type, backless. 
dirndl skirt, sheered pleats, or 
bell-shaped skirt. Although some 
decolletages remain sophisti- 
cated, others are more demure 

and simple. Just the thing for 
a party-going coed! 

But, a-h-h, Santa wouldn't 
have the heart to leave an old 
standard under the Christmas 
tree without also leaving a saucy, 
new item in fashion circles, 
"And just what is it?" you may 
ask. Why. nothing other than 
bright, paisley print material 
used for a new purpose. This is 
positively daring, darling, and 
different in cocktail dresses. 

This new addition to the holi- 
day styles rivals the traditional 
"after-five" dress like real close. 
The new lowered waistline is 
featured in some of the new 
cocktail dresses, and others come 
complete with self sash to be 
worn or discarded. 

These dresses are styled in 
adorable printed silk surah, 
chiffon, and the sheerest of 
wool. So, you see, you too can 
be the "belle of the ball," or a

The Story of 

Christmas Giving 

Who brings Christmas gifts' 
Through the ages, the act of 
giving has been shrouded in an 
air of mystery that surrounds 
both giver and gift. Since three 
Wis? Men appeared suddenly out 
of the desert bearing gold, 
frankincense, and myrrh for the 
new-born Infant at Jerusalem, 
Christmas gift-bearers have ap- 
peared and disappeared mysteri- 
ously every year. 

In Spain, the three Wise Men 
still bring the presents and 
distribute them on January 6th, 
the Epiphany, Spanish children 
put their shoes out on the 
window sill and fill them with 
straw for the camels — then 
awake to find that the straw .s 
gone and presents have been leit 
in its stead. 

In Italy, the gift-giver is La 
Befana — who is reputed to eat 
bad children as well as reward 
good ones. Legend has it that 
Befana was a woman who had 
been too busy with her house- 
work to offer hospitality to the 
three Wise Men — and asked 
them to return when she was 
not so busy. They did not come 
back and Befana watches for 
them every Epiphany, 

French children know that 
Le Pere Noel will come down 
from heaven and bring good 
things if they are well behaved— 
but if they are not. Le Pere 
Fouettard — Father Spanker - 
may arrive with a load of 

In Mexico, gifts come tumbling 
from a pinata— a gay clay bird 
or animal filled with fruit, 
candy, nuts and small gifts. The 
pinata is hung from a doorway 
or tree and the child, blind- 
folded, breaks the pmata with 
a stick. In the mad scramble that 
follows, each child strikes to pick 
up as many gifts as possible. 

In Denmark, presents are 
brought by the little gnome said 
to dwell in the family attic or 
barn— and in some parts of 
Scandinavia, gifts are brought 
by two gnomes— an old woman 
carrying a basket of gifts and an 
old man with a white beard 
wearing a red hood. 

In Russia, Grandfather Frost 
often is assisted in his gift-bear- 
ing by the Snow Maiden. And in 
Holland, St. Nicholas rides upon 
a white horse while his black- 
clad servant. "Black Pieter," 
carries the gifts. 

In ancient times, the gift-giver 
was a local bishop accompanied 
in a procession by demons who 
scattered at his approach. Per- 
haps one of these oldest Christ- 
mas processionals was one in

ESQUIRE'S Fashion Director 

'GOD REST YOU MERRY, GENTLEMEN . . ." for the festive 
holiday season is upon us. The days are drawing in, the nights are 
filled with music and laughter, and it's time to take a good, solid 
look at your formal wear so you'll be a ready — as well as a willing 
— party-goer. 


old song, and it's particularly true of formal 
dress. "This is an area where the rules were 
not made to be broken, where the polish 
and punctilio of tradition are a must. So 
your formal clothes are the blue chips in 
your wardrobe — and an extra investment 
not only of money but of time and thought 
about tailoring, fit and fabric, will pay you 
steady dividends for many seasons to come. 

WILT YOU WON'T — not in the new 

lightweight fabrics now available in formal 
wear. These lustreless, lightweight wor- 
steds, or blends of acrylic or polyester fibres 
and worsted, are proof against the most 
sardine-packed ballroom, stuffy and steam- 
heated though it is. You'll be coolly, com- 
fortably turned out in these fabrics for all 
. seasons. 

THE SHAPE'S THE THING, and a smart, correct jacket is the 
natural shoulder, single-breasted dinner jacket with black satin 
or silk faille shawl collar. Gaining steadily in popularity is the 
notched lapel, often seen on the dinner jacket with flaps on the 
pockets that may be worn in or out. Some undergraduates are 
wearing the high-fashion peak lapel, which is a feature of dinner 
jackets with a little more shape at the waist. 


is the revival of the vest. One of these will 
add a real touch of elegance to the formality 
of your image, whether in matching fabric 
trimmed with silk, or pure silk in a brocade 
or textured weave. Note: the vest should 
match your jacket in color, if not in fabric, 
while its lapels should echo the shape of 
those on your dinner jacket — shawl, notched 
or whatever. Here is the single-breasted 
shawl collar vest with satin lapels and three 
. buttons. 

ON MIDDLE GROUND, the pleated satin cummerbund with 
matching tie is the smart variation on a theme. To be correct with 
traditional formal dress, they should be black. (An exception to 
the rule: if you're in southern climes for Christmas, a subdued 
madras or batik cummerbund and tie may be worn with your white 
or colored dinner jacket. Lighter, brighter colors — like blue, bur- 
gundy and gold — are newest, with orthodox styling and shawl 
collar.) Your dress shirt, with black pearl studs and cufflinks to 
match, has a pleated bosom and leaves a dazzling V2" of white cuff 
showing. And while we're at it, why don't we leave the lacy, ruflly 
shirts to the headliners at Las Vegas? 

Home tconomics students prepare Christmas Bazaar under 
direction of Mrs. Evanel R. Terrell. 

A prize package designed to be opened both before and after 
Christmas is this jolly Santa Claus cookie canister. It's so easy to 
make, even the kids can lend a "helping" hand. All you need are a 
paper bucket, a bit of cotton and colored paper, and some pomsettia 

THE BAREFOOT TWIST may be fun, but it could be hazardous 
if any of those cigarets you're stamping out are live ones! Besides, 
you'll be much more in step in your black patent leather plain-toe 
eyelet-ties, or your slipon pumps with a grosgrain bow. A smart 
alternative is a pair of highly-polished, black calfskin shoes— with 
plain toes, of course. Your hose are thin black silk, nylon or rayon 
— plain, with no ribbing, please, and gartered for the extra sleek- 
ness that formal dress demands. 

COVER THE SITUATION with a classic 

Chesterfield coat, velvet-collared, worn with 
a black, dressy snap-brim. More adventur- 
ous alternatives, if you've the face for it. 
are the black homburg or derby, both 
equally correct. A white silk scarf and light 
grey suede or natural chamois gloves will 
complete the picture of a deb's delight. 
From now on you're on your own! Have a 
dandy holiday (pun intended) — we'll see 
.you next year.

Story of Christmas Giving 

(Coniinurd from Pniic -11 

s'hich two "ghosts of the fields" 
ii essed in straw led the way, 
iollowed by Pan. and behind Pan 
1 masked and horned creature 
Tjho carried a birch to chastise 

But one of the strangest gift- 
5:i7ers of all flings open a door 
ir Sweden — throws in a gift — 
Ihen vanishes. The gift, called 
the Julkapp, is done up in so 
ii'iany wrappings that it is hard 
to find. 

Modern Santa Clauses, accord- 
ing to J. C. Penney Company, 
h.ave more than 50,000 different 
kinds of gifts to choose from in 
department stores. Penney's 
cliief toy buyer alone selects up- 
wirds of 1,000 different toy and 
g. me items from which Penney 
stores select Christmas toy 

Which toys are popular with 
CMHtemporary Santas and their 
y-ungsters? Penney's reports an 
increase in popularity of science 
toys, and many children ask for 
dolls and toys they've seen ad- 
vertised on TV. Sign of the 
times: little boys who once 
wanted a train now frequently 
prefer a racing car set. 

The red-clad figures who ring 
their clapper at shoppers have 
a real life model in the Turkish 
Bishop St, Nicholas, who devoted 
his life to charity and good works 
more than 1,600 years ago. 

An old story tells how St. 
Nicholas unintentionally origi- 
nated the custom of hanging 
stockings by the fireplace at 
Christmas time, St. Nicholas 
knew of a poor and proud noble- 
man who had no dowry for his 
three daughters. Coming to liis 
house one evening, St. Nicholas 
peered in the nobleman's win- 
dow, saw him fast asleep, and 
stealthily climbed the roof to 
Ihe chimney. Here he pitched 
down three gold pieces, expect- 
ing they would land at the 
hearth at the nobleman's feet. 
But one of the daughters had 
hung up a pair of stockings to 
dry and the gold pieces landed 
in the toe of one of tliem. 

Christmas in the New England 
Colonies was not a very happy 
affair. For a time — from 1642 to 
1652 — the Puritans in England 
issued a series of ordinances for- 
bidding church services and 
festivities on Christmas Day — as 
well as making plum puddings 
and mince pies. And in America, 
because such celebrations had a 
heathen origin, the General 
Court of Massachusetts passed a 
law in 1659 making the observ- 
ance of Christmas a penal 

In England, Christmas merri- 
ment returned with the restora- 
tion of the monarchy, in 1660.

But in America, the zeal against 
"heatlien customs" persisted 

until the middle of the 19th 
century. As late as 1856, Christ- 
mas was an ordinary working 
day in Boston, and often those 
who refused to come to work 
were dismissed. In 1870. classes 
were held as usual on Christmas 
in public schools, and children 
who did not attend were severely 

But things began to brighten 
as more and more immigrants 
arrived, bringing with them their 
own special gift-givers. Two 
centuries before, the Dutch had 
come, bringing St. Nicholas with 
them, or Santa Glaus for sliort. 
A German colony had moved 
into Pennsylvania along with 
"Cliristkindlein" who was to be 
transformed into Kris Kringle, 
Swedish settlers brought a gift- 
giver descended from the old 
god Thor. 

In 1822. a Presbyterian divinity 
professor named Dr. Clement C. 
Moore bumped into a tiny, fat 
Dutchman with red cheeks and 
white hair. The Dutchman had 
been telling Dr. Moore some St. 
Nicholas legends, and now it 
struck Dr. Moore that the old 
Dutchman was the very image 
of St, Nicholas himself. 

Hurrying home. Dr. Moore sat 
down and started to write: 

'■Twas the night before Christ- 
mas, and all through the 

Not a creature was stirring, 
not even a mouse." 

The modern flesh and blood 
Santa today, says Penney's. is 
usually equipped with an arti- 
ficial beard made of yak's hair 
from Tibet. He has had his 
origins in dozens of countries. 
Asia Minor. Italy, Africa. 
Holland. Russia and Sweden. 

But it was from the United 
States that he re-crossed the 
Atlantic, as Father Christmas in 
England and Pere Noel in

Though Christmas comes but 
cnce a year, in the Scandinavian 
countries it lingers for a long 
time; Jul, as it is known, lasts 
thirteen days. Refreshments are 
sometimes unusual: cakes or 
loaves of bread in the form of 
boars are eaten — recalling the 
ancient Viking feasts when real 
wild boars were on the menu. 

The French prefer cakes 
shaped like a Yule log, frosted 
with chocolate to resemble the 
bark. After Midnight Mass. 
families and friends gather to 
make merry all night and to par- 
take of an enormous meal called 
"reveillon," which features 
oysters, sausages and pancakes. 
In some villages, a big party is 
given on Twelfth Night, and the 
king or queen of the evening is 
the lucky person who has found 
in his pastry a tiny doll, a bean, 
or a little wooden shoe. 

Traditionally, the big Christ- 
mas visiting day in France Is 
January 6. when friends call on 
each other with gifts. French 
children had already put out 
their shoes for Bonhomme Noel 
(Father Christmas) on Christ- 
mas Eve. 

But if you think you have a 
lot of people dropping in during 
the Christmas season, consider 
the plight of some Mexican 
hostesses. For each of the nine 
nights before Christmas, a man 
and woman dressed as Mary and 
Joseph lead a donkey from door 
to door, knocking for admittance, 
Each night they are refused at 
all but one home, which invites 
them in for supper and hos- 
pitality. As the two walk through 
the streets, neighbors fall in be- 
hind them— so that by the time 
the last house is reached, there 
is quite a procession to be wined 
and dined! 

Remember that next time you 
invite the "crowd" over for a 
glass of Spanish sherry and some 
Christmas cheer.

Christmas Entertaining 
Around the World 

If you peep under the table- 
cloth at a Lithuanian Christmas 
dinner, you may find hay! It is 
placed there to symbolize the 
Christ Child's birth in a manger. 

In token of this fact, both 
farmers and their cattle fast the 
day before Christmas in parts of 
Germany — and then both enjoy 
a hearty meal. 

As you sit down to Christmas 
dinner this year, give a thought 
to the ways in which foreign 
families spread good cheer. 

Tlie Belgians and their guests 
sit around and tell ghost stories. 
Norwegians sit down to a 
gigantic Christmas breakfast 
with as many as 40 different 
kinds of hot and cold dishes. 

In some districts of Portugal, 
even the ghosts look forward to 
Christmas. For the Portuguese 
leave food on the table so that 
the spirits of the dead, if hungry, 
can share in the Christmas 
cheer. In Poland and the Balkan 
countries— at least before the 
Iron Curtain closed in — people 
always left an empty chair at 
the Christmas table and before 
the fire, for the Christ Child: 

But the Danes go to special 
pains to avoid one unwanted 
Christmas guest, the Shoemaker 
of Jerusalem. According to the 
old Danish legend, Jesus rested 
at a shoemaker's door while on 
the road to Calvary. "Go on. go 
on," shouted the Shoemaker, "I 
shall go on," replied Jesus, look- 
ing at the Shoemaker, "but thou, 
thou Shalt wander until I re- 
turn." To discourage this un- 
welcome wanderer. Danish farm- 
ers make the sign of the cross 
over all their farm implements, 
lest, finding an unblessed corner, 
the Shoemaker sit down and rest, 
bringing bad luck to the farmer 
and his household. 

Though so many of the world's 
Christmas customs sound exotic 
and strange to our ears, the fact 
Is that much of our own Christ- 
mas cheer has been imported 

from abroad. This is true not 
only of the Christmas tree (from 
Germany} and the Christmas 
card lan English idea), but the 
ingredients of our holiday 
dinners and parties. Turkey is a 
native American dish, but plum 
pudding and mince pie are Eng- 
lish; so is the wassail bowl. 
Spanish sherry, which has long 
been winning increasing popu- 
larity at American tables, is also 
becoming a holiday favorite 
here: there is a type of sherry 
to suit the palate of almost every 
guest, and it begins or ends a 
holiday meal with equal grace. 

You might take a tip from Sir 
Walter Raleigh who developed 
Sack Posset as a Christmas 
drink. Take 2 quarts of milk. 
■\ cups of sugar, warm to scald- 
ing, add 4 beaten eggs yolks, and 
add one bottle of Oloroso type 
Spanish Sherry. Your guests will 
feel as if you had knighted them. 

Another Spanish custom which 
might divert your holiday guests, 
but has yet to reach our shores, 
is the Urn of Fate. The names 
of friends are placed in a large 
bowl and on Christmas Day each 
person draws the name of the 
one who shall be his best friend 
till next Christmas. If. as some- 
times happens with name- 
dropping, the results are disap- 
pointing, the players just grin 
and bear it: trade-offs aren't 

A charming Christmas party 
game is played by children in 
Mexico. A large jar of earthen- 
ware, called a pinata, is filled 
with gifts and then hung from 
the celling of the house, or from 
a nearby tree. Blindfolded chil- 
dren try to break the jar with 
a stick, and when someone suc- 
ceeds, they all scramble for the 
candy, fruit and gifts inside. 

Another "swinging" Christmas 
ritual, observed -in Switzerland, 
has to do with the selection of a 
future mate. If any young boy 
or girl drinks from nine differ-

to be aware of the fact that 
there is a definite relationship 
between the Income of parents 
and the achievement of their 
cliildren in school as recorded 
by standardized tests, but this 
relationship does not necessarily 
hold true when it comes to 
Naiive ability. 

Students should be made 
aware early in their educational 
program of the many scientific 
and technical jobs available to 
their group, so they can start 
pursuing the necessary courses 
to qualify for such jobs. 

Industrial arts is designed to 
introduce to and provide an 
opportunity for students to un- 
derstand our present day indus- 
trial complex which is run by 
electronics and automation, and 
financed heavily by the Defense 
Budget of the U, S. Government. 

Electricity, electronics, metals 
and drafting should be the key 
areas of an up-to-date Indus- 
trial arts program.

January. 1963 


Honor System Needed Here 

An article appeared recently in the Savannah Evening Press 
on the orRanizine of a honor system at one of the local high schools. 

The honor system, as outlined, would curb or eliminate cheat- 
ing on examinations by having. (1) students to pledge complete 
honesty in the taking of tests, <2) students to consider it their duty 
to report to authorities whenever other students attempt to copy 
on tests or give out copies of stolen examinations for profit or favor. 

The primary aim of the system is to foster higher standards of 
scholarship among the students at the school. 

Such a system should be organized here and at other educa- 
tional institutions, because it is a known fact that American high 
school and college students have resorted to various dishonest prac- 
tices in order to "pass" examinations. 

Being such an institution, it is not surprising that a represent- 
able number of our students do "got" examinations. This should 
be of vital concern to both faculty and student body because, If 
not checked, this malignancy could spread to such proportions that 
our rating system here would be invalidated. 

It would tlien be possible for a dishonest "honor" graduate's 
record on a Job could be harmful to the reputation of the school. 

While reaction to this editorial may be disfavorable on part 
of those guilty of these malpractices, it is the role of the school 
press to bring forth for all to see those things which are considered 
to be undesirable or harmful. 

The Tiger's Roar is definitely and uncompromisingly against all 
such dishonesty and will campaign vigorously against this evil. 

It Is almost unbelievable that instructors here are not aware 
of the situation. 

We would like to see more precautionary measures taken by 
professors to safeguard the security of their tests, and some type 
of action by the sincere and honest students at this college to halt 
this assault on the integrity of our institution is long overdue. 


By Bobby L. Hill, '63 
Savannah State College 

One of the most cockeyed con- 
cepts in the documents of his- 
tory reads, "and finally the 
Negro was set free in 1863." This 
rationalized promise by which 
much of the injustices of today 
are explained away should be 
unequivocally dispelled. 

The Emancipation Proclama- 
tion was indeed a step in the di- 
rection of "Justice writ large" 
but a far cry from unqualified 
justice. Since Abe Lincoln set pen 
to that famous document of 
"freedom" the black man having 
stepped, ualks on, but he has 
walked on rugged grounds. 
Blockades have been placed in 
his way, The roads have been re- 
vamped by the contractors and 
architects of bigotry and hate. 
The black man walked silently 
into the hangmen's noose in 
Georgia and other states where 
the state mottos are similar to 
"Justice, Wisdom and Modera- 
tion." The Negro has trodded 
peacefully into towns where the 
stones, stakes, boiling oil and 
jeering wiiites awaited his ar- 
rival. He has stopped at the back 
window of restaurants and for 
equal price, received scraps re- 
served for the dogs and the 
Negro. The black man has had 
to rest in the scums of iast-class 
housing, along his way. He has 
had to perform the lowest jobs 
for the lowest pay. He has to 
take what was left after the 
feast, on that which his black 
hands planted, worked, picked, 
cooked and served. He has to 
serve his God. his master and 
himself. He has had only the 
hope of heaven. 

The story of the Negro, since 
the Emancipation Proclamation, 
has certainly not been one of 
free flowing melody. Too often, 
the story has been of desolation 
and long suffering; too often, it 
has been a story of detached and 
autonomous people in a nation 
claiming dedication to unity. 

The laws and treaties espous- 
ing freedom and equality since 
1863 have been numerous, and 
an equal number of them have 
been only ink filled scraps of 
paper; yet, the black man walks 

Converse to the scriptures, the 
black man is forced to make two 
steps to God's one. Marvelous 
though, is and has been his 
ability to walk on when the road 
was all uphill. Even more 
marvelous has been his ability 
to achieve recognition and merit 
when twice the effort, time and 
ingenuity of any other individual 
had to be put forth. In the 
period since the Emancipation 
Proclamation, we have seen the 
black man, in spite of gross un- 
favorable odds, produce great 
men in every existing field — 
from syrup-making to surgery. 

One would reasonably surmise 
that time alone (1863-19631 
would have eradicated the Amer- 
ican injustices and made for the 
realization of racial peace under 
the Emancipation Proclamation. 
One would reason that in a one 
hundred-year lapse of time, 
slavery would be a memory, 
segregation dead and prejudice 
passed away. To tliink this would 
certainly be a careless thought. 
as well as a thought in error. For 
on this very day, 1963. freedom 
and justice are "writ small." Yet, 
the black man having stepped, 
walks on. 

Today there is a new Negro, 
There is a new hope and a new 
dignity, all encompassed with a 
new approach. The new Negro is 
asking questions and demanding 
answers: building houses and 
living in them, cooking food and 
eating it, writing books and 
reading them, making laws and 
enforcing them. The barriers 
that stand before the new Negro 
must come down, never to rise 

It is for certain that in this 
new day, the laws proclaiming 
justice must be either realized 
or scrapped. Not for one minute 
more can political, economic and 
social injustices exist under the 
roof of democracy. The new 
Negro demands that democracy 
be defined and practiced or 
scrapped and forgotten. 

The day has come but the task 
is not completed. The task is 
neither one for a select few: it is 
a responsibility of every man- 
black, white, or colorless — to join 
the fight against injustices, 
bondage, ignorance, prejudice 
and tradition. 

Simpson Says 
Research Centers 
Develop Around 
LJ ni versities 

By Veronica Owens 

The Editorial and Research 
Service published an editorial by 
Dr. George L. Simpson, Jr., the 
Assistant Administrator for 
Public Affairs National Aeronau- 
tics and Space Administration. 
In his editorial Dr. Simpson 
stipulated the plausibility of 
establishing research centers in 
the South - He is quoted as 
stating, "Before we can con- 
sider such research centers 
seriously, we must take a look 
at the factor most vital to their 
success , . . the men who staff 
those centers," 

He further contended that the 
research scientists that will 
automatically have to work at 
these centers are attracted to 
the metropolitan areas more 
than they are to small towns and 
communities. This attraction. 
Dr. Simpson attributed to the 
fact that in the metropolitan 
areas entertainment and speak- 
ing engagements are at a high 
level. Also, in these areas a great 
deal of informal actviity where 
research shop talk and general 
intellectual discussions are held. 

Dr. Simpson proceeded to 
maintain that. "The university 
is at the core of virtually all cur- 
rent efforts to develop centers of 
research activity in the South." 
He went on to enumerate the 
several reasons for this fact. The 
university has libraries and other 
research facilities; the university 
provides the possibility of con- 
tinuing graduate education for 
the research scientist; consulta- 
tion with faculty members is 
convenient; and of special im- 
portance is the general intellec- 
tual and cultural atmosphere 
that is more than attractive to 
the scientists and his family." 

Dr. Simpson concluded his 
editorial by asserting that, "Be- 
fore we can build productive 
centers of research, we must 
build universities of the finest 
order in this region so that we 
will have the nucleus around 
which research activities can

A look at out- world reveals 
the following facts: 

Culturally, the masses of the

Educationally, there is a 
passion for knowledge in the 
world today that never before in

Politcilaly, we live in a divided

BY 0. E. SCHOEFFLER, esquire's Fashion Director 

Winter isn't really going to go on forever ... it just seems that way. 
And by now. you've probably noticed some gaps in your cold- 
weatJier wardrobe. So, what better time to fill in those gaps . . . and 
to help you here is a review of this Winter's newest fashion ideas. 
What's new? Quite a bit. 

SUITS ON THE SCENE. ..this wintevof- 

fer enough variety to suit any discernnig 
young man with ideas about fashion. Dark 
blue unfinished worsted is your best bet 
for the basic, go-anywhere suit. It's equal 
to all but the most formal after-dark oc- 
casions, as is dark gray sharkskin bird's- 
eye worsted. (Eird's-eye is a tiny geo- 
metric pattern of small diamond shapes 
with dark center dots.) Pin stripes, espe- 
cially in dark blues and bromis, are play- 
ing a successful revival this year, and are 
due for a long run. The much more casual, 
soft muted glen plaids are most often seen 
on the fashion scene in light and dai'k 
tones of gray. 

WINTER WEIGHTS- All wool material. 
or blends of wool and polyester fibers make 
for light^veight warmth in today's suits. 
No matter what your great-aunt says, 
horse-blanket Winter weights just ai-en't 

necessary anymore, even for horse-blankets. The silhouette of your 
new lightweight Winter suit is natural shoulder, with straight- 
hanging, center-vented jackets remaining the rule. 3-button models 
are most popular with men on campus, and trim, tapered trousers, 
either belted or in the newei', self-belt variety, are all pleatless for 
a slimmer look. 

SHORT SNAP STYLING — short snap-tab collars on dress shirts 
are the front-runners in fashion today, followed closely by button- 
downs, both featuring barrel cuffs and button-back neckbands. 
While checking that wardrobe of yours, check out your shirts: 
make sure there are enough for a change every day— particularly 
in white broadcloths, the staple of your shirt supply. A few dis- 
creetly striped oxfords will lend fashionable and sophisticated 
variety to your stock: And both provide the right background for 
foulard and wool challis ties printed in soft, muted patterns. 

DAY IN. DAY OUT. ..nothing cuts winter chin likeaflannel shirt, 
both for warmth and for warmly colorful good looks. They're 
either all-wool or blends of either wool-and-cotton or wool-and- 
polyester fibers. Oversized tartans and solid colors, classically 
styled with medium spread , collars, are standouts for comfort and 
good looks. 


one more sweater? If so, he can't be found on any campus we know 
of. Shetland pullovers in heather tone mixtures or in vibrant colors 
are the hardy perennials of the pullover breed, and are always m 
fasliion. But if you're looking for something new, try one of the 
new Tyrolean-influenced heavy-knits. These lively patterned pull- 
overs have V-necks that button up snugly against the Wintry winds. 
Cardigans, now available in lighter-than-ever-weight yarns, are 
fast becoming year-round favorites. But- 
ton one up against the icy blasts now, and 
get the bonus of casual good looks over 
your cotton sport shirts this Summer. 


le liable to wind up in shearling jack- 
et:- or knee-length outercoats. Handsome 
bulky stadium coats with shearling lining 
are this year's fashion pace-setters. Cot- 
ton pile lining under smooth fabric shell 
is another fashionable way to fight frost. 
Newest of all is the quilted nylon jacket in 
bright blue or black. Lightweight and 
warm, it features a zippered front and 
parka hood for extra protection and trim 
good looks. 


...but it can dampen more than your 
spirits if you're not ready for it. We'll see 
you next month, with a look at the latest 
in rainwear. See you then.

bolster their season record to 
four wins against five setbacks. 

Height is one of the team's 
biggest assets. The current edi- 
tion of the Tigers is one of the 
tallest teams ever to don the 
Blue and Orange, Average player 
height is about 6' 2", Although 
blessed with height, the squad 
is a bit lacking in the speed 

In order to counteract this 
weakness, mentor Al Frazier 
changed his attack from the old 
run-and-shoot type of offense 
to a ball-control type of game. 

The squad's attack is centered 
around Johnny Mathis, a tower- 
ing 6' 4" center. 

Having not yet reached their 
mid-season form, the Tigers 
have the makings of a well- 
balanced ball club. Only three 
lettermen from the long-to-be- 
remembered squad which 
achieved national recognition, 
are now playing varsity basket- 
ball at Savannah State.

Students Here Vote "Pro" 
On Birth Control Question 

By Darnel H, Dawson 

During the past few years the 
subject of birth control has 
caused much controversy. One 
of the biggest factors that has 
contributed to the controversy 
was the development of an effec- 
tive birth control plU. 

A great deal has been said for 
and against birth control 
measures, with the sharpest re- 
actions being posted by those 
who view the problem In a re- 
ligious or moral light. One 
eminent Catholic gynecologist 
who helped in the development 
of the pill said that ". . . the use 
of birth control pills for legiti- 
mate purposes Is completely 

moral," while on the contrary 
Catholic Church officiais say 
the pills may not be used for 
the prevention of conception. 
They do. however, approve of 
the pill being used to prevent 
miscarriage and to promote 

Today with the population of 
the world at the three billion 
mar\i and rising, birth control 
has become an International 
issue. Statisticians say that by 
the year 2000, the earth's present 
population will double. Half the 
world's population is presently 
underfed. With many coun- 
tries producing people faster 
than food, what exactly will be 
the state of affairs by the year 


E. J. Josey was one of two 
Negro citizens appointed to the 
Board of Managers of the Sa- 
vannah PulDlIc Library. Eugene 
Gadsden, a local attorney and an 
alumnus of Savannah State, 
shares this historic honor with 
Mr. Josey. Mayor Malcolm 
Maclean recommended the ap- 
pointment and City Council ap- 
proved on Wednesday, Decem- 
ber 19. 

E. J. Josey was born in Nor- 
io\k, Virginia, and educated in 
the public schools of Portsmouth. 
Virginia. He is a veteran of 
World War II. 

A graduate of Howard Uni- 
versity where he received the 
A.B. degree in Hislory, Mr. Josey 
matriculated at Columbia Uni- 
versity and received the M.A. de- 
gree in History; his professional 

training in Librarlanship was 
done at the State University of 
New York, Albany, New York, 
where the M.S.L.S. was con-

Something must be done to 
curb the present birth rate if the 
over-populated countries of the 
world are going to stabilize their 
economies, Already extensive 
birth control promotion is being 
carried out in countries with 
populations exceeding one 

Our territory of Puerto Rico 
and the country of India are two 
of the areas where such 
measures are being used on a 
large scale.

A Fireside Chat 

Raymond Johnson 
Not to Lose Perspe 

By Elmer Thomas 

We were sitting by the fire- 
place that cold Wednesday eve- 
ning, I was reading the after- 
noon newspaper and Raymond 
Johnson was puffing on his pipe 
as lie sat watcliing the synco- 
pated dance of tlie flames. 

Extension Service Facilities Outlined 

Among the many offices on 
the Savannah State College 
Campus is the one located on the 
second floor of Hill Hall. 
Actually, though, it is not an 
office, but an agency composed 
of several offices, which form 
the Georgia Agricultural Exten- 
sion Service for this area. 

Augustus Hill, state agent in 
charge of the extension service, 
says that the agency offered 
various types of services of in- 
terest and benefit to both urban 
and rural citizens. 

Farmers may receive free pro- 
fessional aid from the agents, 
who are trained In their specialty 
and are familiar with the latest 
techniques and developments in 
the field of agriculture. Area 
farmers may have their soils 
tested and analyzed so that they 
can fertilize their land properly. 
Help in such areas as insect and 
pest control, marketing, farm 
improvement and the prevention 
of soil erosion is available. 
The agents also can help solve 
social and economic problems 
like family budgeting, rural 
recreation, and personal prob- 
lems whenever this type of 
assistance is sought. 

By no means are services 
limited to the rural population 
The 4-H Club work in this area 
is supervised by the Agricultural 

: Extension Service. 

Savannah at one time had the 

■ greatest number of 4-H Club 

' members in this state, despite 
the fact that Chatham County 

: is mostly urban. 

Students in the junior high 
; schools and the lower grades are 
I taught many skills and practices 
• which will be of benefit to them. 
' They are taught to beautify their 

homes through interior decorat- 
ing and landscaping. Many a 
successful housewife can give 
credit to a 4-H Club and a club 
worker for the acquisition of 
basic household skills.

"Won't be long before you'll 
be finishing up your schoolin',

he looked at me over a pair of 
spectacles which had slid to a 
position midway between the tip 
of his nose and the bridge.

The man I'm talking to is Mr. 
Raymond Johnson, a retired mail 
carrier who lives in this small 
but neat cabin witli his wife. The 
old man spends much of his 
time fishing and hunting. This 
location is excellent for these 
two sports. As a matter of fact, 
this is the main reason he moved 
here from the city after he re- 
tired from the Post Office.

The reason a dollar won't do

"One thing about education is 
that it sharpens your vision — 
makes you aware of many facts 
and ideas— the geography of 
China — distance from here to 
the sun — physical laws of the 
universe. . . ." 

"That's quite true, sir," I said 
as I reached over, grabbed the 
iron poker, and pushed the log 
on the fire into a better burning 

He continued to sit there, 
meditating as he so often did. 
It was almost impossible to tell 
what thoughts Mr. Johnson was 
entertaining, but I tell you I 
doubt that there is a more 
broadniinded' individual in tliis 
region. However, one could be 
very easily fooled by his rather 
rural appearance and speech, but 
if you knew him like I know 
him, you'd agree that he is quite 
a person. 

"My advice to you son^Get 
the education — Don't let the 
education get you." 

"How's that, sir," 

"See these glasses here." he 
said pointing to his gold-rimmed 
spectacles, "they are for far- 
sightedness; with them one can 
see things that are far off 
all right but can't see something 
that's right next to him." 

I could see then that Mr. 
Johnson was trying to get a 
point over. 

"I've seen quite a bit in my 
life. Of course I'm not one of 
these fellas who believes wisdom 
comes with old age. 'cause I've 
seen a lotta' men much older 
than me and at the same time 
much more foolish." 

He fumbled around for a few 
minutes looking for a match. He 
finally rolled a piece of paper, 
stuck it in the hot coals and re- 
lit his pipe, 

"But one thing I know," he 
continued, "is that if we'd ail 
pay a bit more attention to little 
things — like you lettin' your dad 
know liow much you appreciate 

him sending you through college 
then we'd all be a little better." 

Evidently the old man hadn't 
lit the tobacco well the last 
time because it went out again. 
He went through the same pro- 
cedure as before, lighting the 
paper and then transferring the 
fire to his pipe. He took a big 
puff, and tlien continued: 

"I like that poem by James W. 
Foley, 'Drop a Pebble In the 

"Oh yes! I know that one," 
was my response. 

He looked up at the ceiling for 
a couple of minutes, and then 
began to recite: 

■Drop a pebble in the water: 

just a splash, and it is 

But there's half-a-hundred 

ripples circling on and on, 

Spreading, spreading from the 

center, flowing on out to 

the sea. 

And there is no way of tell- 
ing wiiere the end is going 
to be. 

Drop a word of cheer and 
kindness; in a minute you 
But there's gladness still a 
swelling, and there's joy

And you've rolled a wave of

can be heard

water just by dropping one 
kind word," 

The horn honking outside was 
that of my brother who had 
stopped by to pick me up on his 
way home from his job at the 
forestry lookout station. 

By this time Mrs. Johnson had 
come into the room from the 
kitchen. I bade them both a 
good evening and moved on.

The flu epidemic, which has 
risen to serious proportions 
throughout the United States. 
has struck a number of students 
and faculty members here. 

In less than a week after the 
general outbreak, the college in- 
firmary had been filled to 
capacity with stricken dormitory 

Owing largely to the quick 
action taken by the college 
doctor and nurse, the number of 
flu cases here have been kept at 
a minimum. Fortunately, there 
have been no deaths so far due 
to the flu outbreak. 

The Fraternity wishes to make 
it clear that this is not an Alpha 
project exclusively. In fact, all 
able-bodied members of the col- 
lege community are asked to 
donate blood.

The case for the establishment 
of such an economic community 
was presented by Clarence

its stand on the issue mostly on 
the grounds that such an eco-

He said that it took only five 
persons to start such an organi-

would have a common bond- of

could be in the way of fraternal

union, a farm organization, a 
religious or church group, etc- 

Not only is the membership

only 25 cents. 

The other basic requirement 
is that the members must all

sion and would result in in- 
creased productivity and higher 
standards of living for all mem- 
ber nations. 

Bobby Hill and James Brown 
convincingly submitted argu- 
ments branding the proposal, in 
Hill's words, as ". . , unworkable, 
unrealistic, and would create a 
host of new problems, - 

Both teams exliibited a clear- 
cut mastery of the topic under 
discussion, but most observers 
had to agree that the Savannah 
State team was both thorough 
in its knowledge of the case and 
brilliant with orations. 

At 7:30 p.m. on the same date, 
Mannie Roberts and Verlyn Bell 
debated South Carolina State 
College on the same topic.

Education in an Egg Shell 

By Marvin Chatman 
Plato declares that the pur- 
pose of education Is "to give to 
the body and soul all the per- 
fection of which they are 
capable." Learning among us 
has come to be regarded too 
much as a means of hnprovlng 
one's material comforts. We have 
put too much emphasis on the 
"practical" in education. But will 
not a study of the beautiful in 
life do much toward fitting the 
citizen for his place in the 
modern world? Ex - President 
Elliot of Yale University, said; 
"It Is undeniable that the Ameri- 
can democracy has thus far 
failed to take proper account of 
the sense of beauty as a means 
of happiness and to provide for 
the training of that sense." 

Popular culture is a sign of 
the times. People do want money 
and are willing to work and to 
speculate In order to acquire 
wealth. They crave entertain- 
ment and throng moving picture 
shows and Jazz palaces In the 
feverish pursuit of such ideal 
pleasure. But beneath these 
hectic tendencies of the age 
there are more determined 
movements in the direction of 
the things that make for a sound 
mind In a sound body. The re- 
sult Is physical and intellectual 
culture. As a people, we should 
aim to cultivate the arts and 
sciences so that no longer we 
shall have to say to ourselves, 
"Yes, we do not have national 

We who are amateurs, we who 
are going to be teachers, lawyers. 
stenographers, doctors, salesmen, 
housewives, what shall we gain 
from studying the arts in school? 

No matter what your sphere 
of life may be, you will need the 
following qualifications, and 
these, participation in dramatic 
activity may give you: 

1. Poise — The ability to enter 
a room and to remain in it with- 
out feeling that your arms and 
legs are insecurely fastened and 
that your clothes are wrong, 
This is a valuable asset in any 
walk of life. 

2. Voice Training — Everyone 
realizes the value of pleasant, 
welJ-modulated voice. 

3. Spirit of Cooperation — The 
production of a play does not 
depend upon any one person, but 
upon everyone concerned, 

4. A Knowledge of Human 
Nature — There is no job where 
a knowledge of people is not of 
vital Importance. The relation 
between employer and employee, 
between teacher and student, 
between parents and children 
depends on it, and one of the 
best ways to acquire it is by the 
study of character, motives, 
emotions, which is the founda- 
tion of all acting. To put yourself 
into Juliet's place, to think her 
thoughts, and understand Juliet 
on the stage is to understand 
many Julletish qualities off 

Thus, we can truly say, "The 
play's the thing." 

Likewise, various other stu- 
dents at this college might give 
a detailed account of the value 
and necessity of teaching the 
correlated arts of music, dancing, 
language, and painting; but as 
each supplants the other, we will 
generalize by saying that an ap- 
preciation, a love and an under- 
standing of the arts develops the 
individual's taste for better 
things in life. 

To strive to go adventuring 
along unlcnown paths; to seek to 
make real a dream; to find the 
moaning of that wondrously 
patterened thing called life, 
these are desires which even live 
in the heart of man. Ages ago, 
great souls felt its urge and went 
forth on pilgrimages, each to the 
shrine of his ideal. 

And today, all over the world, 
those in whom the vision dwells, 
go forth in like manner, giving 
to the quest the added joy of 
fellowship. There may be diffi- 
culties to surmount to make the 
Pilgrim strong, but if he keeps 
burning, clear and bright, his 
soul's fire, liis faith and hopes 
shall be undimmed." 

Editorial Says Colleges Should Permit 
Coiniiuiiiists to Be Heard on Campuses 

ACP) — Debating with Com- 
munists on campus should be a 
reciprocal affair, argues The 
Redlands Bulldog, University of 
Redlands, Redlands, California, 

Last spring, in response to a 
request to have such a debate on 
campus — a request backed by the 
campus Young Republicans and 
various Bulldog writers — the ad- 
ministration refused to allow a 
Communist to debate at UR, 

Now the Bulldog has received 
a letter from 36 students, tell- 
ing of their experiences in 
Prague. Czechoslovakia, and 
raising the question of why they 
were allowed to speak at a Com- 
munist university and Com- 
munists were not allowed to 
even to debate at ours. 

There are several reasons why 
their question is quite valid. 

First, if there is any truth in 
what these "extremists" have to 
say. it is a grave error and con- 
trary to the spirit of an 
academic institution to deny 
students the right to hear them. 

Second, if the views of the 
extremists are untrue— a distinct 
possibility— UR students still are 

cheated by being denied the 
opportunity of hearing them out. 

Besides, to label everything a 
Communist or Bircher says as 
untrue smacks of self-appointed 
infallibility and forfeit.s to the 
opponents of democracy many 
otherwise valid concepts. 

John Stuart Mill in his essay 
"On Liberty" emphasizes: "He 
who knows only his own side of 
the case knows little of that. His 
reasons may be good, and no one 
may have been able to refute 
them. But he is equally unable 
to refute the reasons on the 
opposite side." 

We urge. then. (1) because 
extremists may have something 
of worth to say. and i2i because 
we need to know and understand 
opposing viewpoints in order to 
defend our own convictions, that 
the administration alter its 
stand on extremist speakers, 

Surely, if the totalitarian Com- 
munists are willing to let us 
challenge them in their own 
back yard, we should not be 
afraid to have them challenge 
us at UR.

arguments are quite sound, but 
only if they are taken out of

In the first place, we live in 
a competive society. Life is one 
long series of competions. and 
it is because of this very com- 
petition that democracy can 
even exist. Now, as every busi- 
nessman knows, it is easier to 
compete and succeed against

thing superior. In order to com-

have well-qualified personnel.

Competitive grading is part of 
that method. Grades give an 
Indication of willingness to work

Grades, then, reflect not only 
intellectual ability but also the 
degree to which a person will 
apply this ability.

Johnny how to compete. Perhaps 
then he would be better pre-

two go hand in hand.

Dear Editor: 

Does the increasing number of 
human relations courses and 
organizations in our colleges in- 
dicate the growing concern as to 
what our relations should be 
with new neighbors coming from 
other parts of the country and 
the world? 

Is this concern due in part to 
the students, exchange pro- 
fessors, businessmen and tourists 
going to other countries and 
coming to our own? 

Is it due in part to the laws 
and ordinances aimed at acts of 
discrimination because of re- 
ligion, race, color or culture? 

Whatever the reasons, isn't it 
becoming increasingly evident 
that the basic hindrance to any 
effort for improving human re- 
lations with our new neighbors 
is the prejudices we harbor 
against those we have heretofore 
not considered as our neighbors? 

Never before in the annals of 
history have so many people 
cried out fo ra right that always 
should have been theirs: social 

And never before have so 
many people won that right. But 
the struggle to win social 
equality for all has not been 
completely won. Millions of peo- 
ple still dream . . . still ask . . . 
still fight for the right to be 
treated as human beings.

Favors Honor 
System Proposal 

Dear Editor: 

You should be commended for 
your editorial. "Honor System 
Needed Here," which appeared 
in the January issue of the 
Tiger's Roar. 

I agree that the honest stu- 
dents at this college and I do 
believe that we form a vast ma- 
jority should do something to 
stop this "test snatching." 

I hope that the students and 
administration will take some 
action to this effect very soon,

higher goals in life. I seem to 
remember the words of Ralph 
Waldo Emerson and I quote:

goals in life will be the man to

stands back and waits will be 
waiting tomorrow," 

I DARE YOU to get a college 
education. A college degree is 
a necessity in today's world. We 
need young men and women who 
are well skilled to carry on gov- 
ernment business and light the 
way to new formulas. 

I DARE YOU to get your own 
lesson. A person who steals his 
way through college by getting 
examinations will be the person 
who faces difficulty tomorrow. 
He may graduate from college 
with honors because he has 
stolen his way through by cheat- 
ing on examinations, but he will 
be the same person who is turned 
down on a job because of a low 
score on the test. 

I DARE YOU to strive for the 
honor roll. I have often heard 
students say that they just want 
to pass. That shouldn't be so. 
We should want to do more than 
just pass. We should want to 
strive for honorable grades and 
also accomplish something from

the kind of future ahead of you,

You don't have anyone to tell 
you to go to class and when to

What You Should Know 
About the National Budget 


What is the most significant 
trend in the growing expendi- 
tures of our Federal Govern- 
ment? Are nondefense expendi- 
tures increasing faster than 
those for defense production? Is 
the Government really holding 
the line on nondefense spend- 
ing, or is it proposing more and 
more new programs every year? 

Answers to these questions — 
and many others of interest to 
taxpayers — are given by the 
Council of State Chambers of 
Commerce in a critical analysis 
of the Administration's budget 
proposals for 1964. The study was 
made In Washington by Eugene 
F. Rinta, a noted fiscal analyst. 

The "one truly heartening" 
feature in the budget — the 
"recognition by President Ken- 
nedy and his administration that 
. . . significant reduction of in- 
dividual and corporate (tax) 
rates is essential for the attain- 
ment of our (economic) growth 
potential" — was found to be 
jeopardized by the size of the 
budget itself. 

The expenditure estimate for 
1964 is S98.8 billion— which ex- 
ceeds the highest budget total 
during World War 11 (the $98.8 
billion total of fiscal 1945 1. The 
1964 total is S4.5 billion above 
the current estimates for 1963, 
and SI 1.0 billion above the 1962 
fiscal year which ended last 
June 30. 

The Council analysis further 
notes that the 1964 expenditure 
total is 29 per cent above that 
of 1960, the last full budget year 
of the previous administration. 
That represents an annual in- 
crease of $5.6 billion over the 
four years since 1960. 

A cursory comparison of 
budgeted 1964 expenditures by 
functional categories with cur- 
rent estimates for 1963 might In- 
dicate that the Defense and 
Space programs account for the 
entire increase of $4.5 billion. 
But the Rlnta analysis discloses 
that many categories of non- 
defense expenditures show a 
further rise in spending beyond 
the sharp increases that have 
already been effected since 1960. 

True or False 

11. The U. S. Congress voted 
to buy bonds to help pay for the 
U.N.'s special operations in the 
Middle East and in the Congo, 

12. The U. S. rocket fired to- 
ward Venus was the Apollo. 

13. In September, Great Britain 
was admitted to membership in 
the Common Market. 

14. By January 1, 1963, Cali- 
fornia had become the nation's 
most populous stated. 

15. In just 2 min. 6 sec, Charles 
Sonny Liston won the world's 
heavyweight boxing champion- 
ship from: 

A. Ingemar Johanssen. 

B. Gene Fullmer. 

C. Floyd Patterson. 

D. Archie Moore.

C. Most strike-outs. 

D. First series grand slam by

balloting for the 1962 Most Valu-

In those categories where a 
decrease was shown, the analysis 
explained that some special 
factor other than a curtailment 
of activities Is generally in- 

1. The $1 billion drop antici- 
pated in farm price supports Is 
largely accounted for by antici- 
pated substantial sales in 1964 
of cotton expected to be placed 
under price support in the cur- 
rent year. Whether these sales 
materialize remains to be seen. 

2. An indicated reduction of 
$160 million In Rural Electrifica- 
tion Administration and Farmers 
Home Administration loan pro- 
grams is almost wholly ac- 
counted for by a bookkeeping 
device. A similar proposal was 
rejected by Congress last year, 

3. A drop of $248 million in 
net postal service outlays Is ac- 
counted for by a lower postal 
deficit due to the full year effect 
in 1964 of postal rate increases 
approved last year. 

4. Foreign economic and tech- 
nical assistance shows a reduc- 
tion of $145 million from 1963, 
but the fact is that these activi- 
ties are being expanded by $278 
million, or more than 10 per cent,

WINNER. At left, Frankie Strick- 
land, senior tailoring and dressmak- 
ing major, was chosen by a majority 
of students at Savannah State Col- 
lege who cast ballots in the election 
to be the best-dressed girl on campus, 

Frankie is from Darien, Georgia. 
She participates in the Home Eco- 
nomics Club, the Girls' Glee Club, 
and enjoys sports and planning so- 
cial affairs. 

RUNNER-UP, at right, was Lottie 
Shellman who came in very close in 
the first balloting (76-71). Since 
there were twelve candidates, and 
since the total number of votes re- 
ceived by Frankie Strickland and 
Lottie Shellman was so close to being 
equal, it was decided to have a spe- 
cial run-off the following day. In 
the final balloting, Lottie received 
147 votes and Frankie received 160.

Natioual Budget 

mtiimcii Irom Page 3. Col. 4> 

The apparent net reduction is 
due to an increase in net receipts 
of $423 million by the Export- 
Import Bank resulting in the 
main from anticipated private 
sales of S540 million of loans it 
holds in its portfolio. These sales 
may prove more difficult in 
realization than in budgeting. 

5. Expenditures for the con- 
duct of foreign affairs indicate 
a reduction of $50 million but 
this is more than accounted for 
by the absence in 1964 of a one- 
shot $100 million outlay for U.N. 
bonds in 1963. 

6, A reduction of $250 million 
is shown for housing and related 
programs but $150 million of this 
results from an anticipated in- 
crease from $49 million to $199 
million in private sales of hous- 
ing mortgages held by the 
Federal National Mortgage As- 

According to Mr. Rinta's 
analysis, the foregoing types of 
budget reductions would appear 
to provide a weak foundation on 
which to base increases in other 
nondefense activities with the 
claim, as stated in the Presi- 
dent's budget message, that ex- 
penditures for purposes otlier 
than defense, space and interest 
are being held at the 1963 level. 

The analysis further pointed 
to a substantial increase in the 
number of Federal civilian per- 
sonnel. In a period of three years 
and five months to the projected 

end of the 1964 budget year, the 
Coxmcil study noted that the 
Kennedy Administration will 
have increased Federal civilian 
employment by more than 

What is the possibility of a tax 
cut in the light of the spending 
situation? Analyst Rinta notes 
that the President's tax program 
places primary emphasis on rate 
reductions designed to increase 
demand and. thus, energize the 
economy. "In the deficit-tax re- 
duction issue." he explains, "the 
President and his advisers take 
the position that the Govern- 
ment will incur deficits the next 
few years with or without tax 
reduction, but that the budget 
will sooner be in balance even 
with rising expenditures if eco- 
nomic growth is encouraged by 
tax cuts." 

"The need for tax rate reduc- 
tions is so urgent that rates 
should be cut promptly," the 
Council study concludes, "but ex- 
penditures should be controlled 
at current levels. On this basis 
a balanced budget could be ex- 
pected within a year or two. 
Certainly this position is an at- 
tainable one if the Congress will 
only give it a real try."

Evaluation of Foreie:ii Student 
Programs Called For By Committee 

Leading educators today en- 
dorsed a call for U. S. colleges 

and universities to re-examine 
the philosophy, objectives and 
operation of their foreign stu- 
dent programs. 

The Committee on the Foreign 
Student in American Colleges 
and Universities issued a 26-page 
report telling the schools that 
they must, among other things, 
spend more money, cooperate 
more closely with governments 
and agencies which sponsor such 
students, and place international 
education "into its proper per- 
spective" as a basic and essential 
part of their educational mission. 

The recommendations grew 
out of several recent studies of 
the foreign student situation. 

such as the Higbee report ("The 
Status of Foreign Student Ad- 
vising in United States Univer- 
sities and Colleges." by Homer 
D. Higbee of Michigan State 
University), which defined the 
inadequacies of foreign student 
programs in the nealiy 2,000 
institutions which now enroll 
foreign students. 

The urgency of the need to im- 
prove foreign student programs 
is underlined by the recent in- 
crease in the number of such 
students, the Committee stresses. 
"In 1961-62." the report states, 
"there were more than 60.000 
foreign students on United 
States campuses- In one decade, 
the number has increased by 75 
per cent, and on the basis of the 


present trend, the number will 
exceed 100.000 in another 10 

Members of the Committee 
are: Dean E. G. Williamson, Uni- 
versity of Minnesota, Chaiiman: 
Francis J. Colligan, U. S. Depart- 
ment of State; Dean Leo R. 
Dowling, Indiana University; 
Melvin J Fox. Ford Foundation; 
Joe W. Neal. University of Texas; 
Donald J, Shank. Institute of 
International Education; and 
Mrs. Julian Street, Jr.. New York 

The report, entitled, "The Col- 
lege, the University and the For- 
eign Student," says schools must 
recognize the significance of 
foreign students as basic and 
essential parts of their educa- 
tional mission, and points out 
what the committee calls a "new 
dimension of educational ex- 
change." that of furthering the 
development of emerging coun- 

"In vigorously pursuing their 
own primary goals — the ad- 
vancement and diffusion of 
knowledge — colleges and univer- 
sities contribute also to a pri- 
mary goal of United States for- 
eign policy — the preservation 
and support of free nations 
around the world," the authors 

Specific recommendations of 
the Committee include these: 

The schools must strive for 
greater cooperation among 
themselves and with govern- 
ments, foundations, interna- 
tional organizations and other 
agencies which sponsor foreign 

Admission policies must be re- 
vised to put emphasis on ad- 
mitting those students whose 
basic objectives can be best 
served. One consideration for 
admission, the Committee con- 
tends, should be the candidates' 
potential contributions to their 
countries' development. 

"Prior competence in the Eng- 
lish language should not be a 
decisive criterion for admission, 
but sufficient training in English 
should be made available to 
those who need it;" the report 
asserts. The authors suggest that 
a regional cooperative basis for 
English training may be the 
answer in many cases. 

Orientation programs for for- 
eign students must not only help 
the student master the details of 
living on the American campus, 
but must also look to the long- 
range objective of exposing the 
student to American life to give 
him an understanding of social 
and political institutions and of 
the "plurality and diversity" 
within this country. 

Closer cooperation between 
academic advising and personal 
counseling must be established. 
the report says. 

Special guests participatinR on the Freshman T-ilent Show held 
February 22 were Nathaniel Watson, a sixth grader at Hodge Ele- 
mentary School who imitated Jackie Gleason, and Melvin Watson, 
fifth grader who imitated Frank Fontaine. 

Eat Today, For We 
Starve Tomorrow? 

Imagine finding yourself in a 
strange city of 120,000 people 
which has sprung up overnight 
on vacant land. 

Imagine pushing your way 
through the crowded supermar- 
kets, churches, and theaters to 
the city's outskirts — and finding 
that another city of 120.000 souls 
has sprung up during the four 
hours it took you to explore the 
first one. 

Imagine walking through the 
second city to discover that a 
third mecca has sprung up be- 
fore you could even reach the 
outskirts of the second. 

The cities are imaginary— but 
not the number of people. 

New people are coming into 
the world faster than you could 
jostle your way through the 
crowded streets which contain 
them. In the future they will 
come even faster. 

An empty city the size of New 
York would be completely popu- 
lated in 10 days if the number 
of people born in the world dur- 
ing that tUne— less the number 
who died— were added as In- 

We are now counted at 2'- 
billion — and adding to our num- 
ber by 300 million a year. Where 
will we find the extra food to 
feed our grandchildren, our 
great-grandchildren and their 
children? Will they starve? Will 
having a baby become taboo? 
Will strict rationing be the order 
of the day? 

The answers to these questions 
would appear to lie in the rate 
of advancement we make In 
nutrition and In agricultural 
practices during the years aliend. 

Recent work in nutrition Is re- 
sulting in many interesting new 
food products which should help 
feed tomorrow's buigeonlng 
population. Among them Is flsh- 
flour, which neither tastes or 
smells like fish, yet has much 
food value. In Mexico it already 
is being used In tortillas and 
doughnuts. In Chile for bread 
and soup. 

In Nigeria press-cake — the 
residue left after oils have been 
taken out of seeds — provides 
nibblers with a tasty morsel 
made from peanuts. In the 
Pacific the press-cake recipe 
utilizes coconut Instead. 

In Guatemala City, the Insti- 
tute of Nutrition for Central 
America has made a drink called 
Incaparina. Incaparina. made of 
corn, sorghum, and cottonseed 
meal costs only three cents a 
glass — and equals three glasses 
of milk in nutrition. 

Agricultural Advances Most 


Important as these nutritional 
gains are. however, the most 
significant contributions In 
meeting tomorrow's food needs 
will undoubtedly have to come 
from improved agricultural prac- 

Americans are inclined to take 
for granted their natural re- 
sources, good health, and whole- 
some food as a part of their 
heritage. Little thought is given 
to the constant battle taking 
place in the production of food 
and other resources and the pro- 
tection of health from opposing 
natural forces— pests. Pesticides 
are the important weapons used 
against insects, diseases, weeds 
and rodents in this struggle. 
Scientists have recognized the 
importance of pesticides and 
have reported their conclusions. 
One such report, from a special 
committee of the National Re- 
search Council, is as follows: 

"No one knows exactly what 
would happen if the use of 
pesticidal chemicals on the farm 
should be abandoned, but it Is 
safe to say that we could not 
commercially produce apples, 
peaches, potatoes, citrus and 
tomatoes, to mention only a few 
crops, and yields of many others 
would be drastically reduced. It 
seems evident that the American 
people can not be fed adequately 
unless crops and livestock are 

protected from insects and other 

It is difficult to realize that 
our forefathers suffered from 
famine and that many deaths 
were caused by pests in those 
early days. The bubonic plague 
In Europe and the great potato 
famine are notable examples, 
the former carried by Uce from 
rats, the latter attributed to a 
fungus called "late blight." As 
recently as 1874, grasshoppers 
caused damage so great In our 
Middle West that Congress called 
It a national disaster. And even 
now much of the world stands 
helplessly by while Insects. In- 
sect-borne diseases and other 
pests destroy their food supply 
and threaten their health. 

Says Stuart H. Bear, Vice 
President of FMC Corporation 
and Manager of Its Niagara 
Chemical Division; "In light of 
these recorded facts and 
challenges posed by the promised 
population explosion, recent out- 
cries by certain groups In this 
country to ban or drastically 
limit the use of pesticides would 
appear to be highly unrealistic 
and even dangerous should they 
result in more limiting legisla- 
tion, Unknown to the average 
American Is the fact that there 
already are extensive Federal 
laws which Insure scltenific and 
tested proof of safety of agricul- 
tural chemicals before they can 
be sold for use In prodnctlon of 
food and. further, place definite 
restrictions on their use In order 
to safeguard the public." 

Great strides have been made 
during the past 50 years as a 
result of the use of a broad 
spectrum of pesticide chemicals 
and research Is in progress which 
promises even greater progress, 
according to Bear. He cites the 
fact that many new develop- 
ments are now underway and 
others are still but a gleam in 
scientists' eyes. 

In the "future possibilities" 
vein arc what might be called 
virlcldes. There are many plant 
diseases caused by viruses, and 
as yet there are no chemical 
means for controlling them. 
Thus it seems feasible that con- 
trols for this purpose might be 

A chemical sterilent which 
would cause insects to lay In- 
fertile eggs Is still another idea 
which it is believed might have 
merit in man's future battle to 
control farm pests.

February - March, 196'^ 




Often! thinlc the siiielemost'important item of clothing to a young 
man on campus is his raincoat. College men have taken the raincoat 
out of the strictly foul-weathei- calegoiy-nnd turned it into an all- 
weather fashion. Today's young man uses his versatile raincoat as 
an all-around, all-purpose coat. If you're in the market for a new 
raincoat this Spring, you've got a lot to choose from. 


.-ill onc-Hi(icd this sc;ison. The wurd for 
this year's raincoat Icngth.s is brcvity~~ 
they measure knee length at their longest, 
several inches shorter in the newest 
models. At the shoulders, most are raglan 
styled (the sleeve extends to the neckline 
and has a slanting senmline from the 
underarm to the neck in front and back). 
Set-in sleeves are also on the scone, and 
fly-front button closures are the rule. 
Mfi-st Spring raincoats arc fitted with high- 
b:d collars (military high-riser style) and 
have slash pockets. In some areas of the 
country, notably the East and West 
coasts, the continentrd influence is show- 
ing in raincoats with all-around or half 


rainwear this Spring will be seen either 
in very dark or very light shades. Black, 
dark olive and dark blue are the colors on 
the nether end of the rainwear spectrum, 

with light natural shades, off-white, and pale olive providing the 
bright spots. A dressy jet-black is a smart bet if you've got a few 
formal occasions coming up. But patterns are on the move in popu- 
larity, particularlyin muted plaids and checks. They're soft, sub- 
dued patterns in contrast with the stark dark and light solids. In 
contrast, linings are brassy and bold. Colorful stripes are the key- 
note in the lightweight self-liner raincoats, and big bright plaid is 
the idea in heavier, ?.ip-in linings for Winter-Wear raincoats. 

THE RAIN IN SPAIN. ..or anyplace else, for that matter, soaks 
through just about everything except the fabrics you'll find in the 
newest rainwear. They're predominantly polyester and cotton 
blends, all cotton poplin and cotton twill, polyesters and wool com- 
binations, and all-wool gabardines. The important thing to you is 
that enormous strides have been made in water repellency and stain 
resistance, making the solid light colors practical and popular, 

FADED BLUE DENIM... is the big color in rain jackets this Spring. 
Ideally casual for campus wear, they're zippered up against the 
weather, with plenty of room at the waist and oversized deep slash 
pockets in which to bury your hands. Generally' they're plain-bot- 
tomed, but some have a parka-type drawstring below the waist. 
Linings run from light cotton blends and laminated plaids bonded 
to the inside of the shell to deep fleece and quilts for extra warmth. 

THE HOBO HAT. ..which we introduced in this column a few 
months ago, has made its mark in rainwear this Spring. A simple 
cone of processed cotton, it reverses to a felt-like material for fair- 
weather wear. It can be turned, pulled, yanked and folded into any 
shape that suits you. When you change your mind, change your hat, 
with a few twists of the wrist,

National Self-Government Com- 
mittee. Through his work in 
municipal reform as a young 
man, Mr. Welling developed a 
strong and continuing interest 
in student self-government. 
Throughout his life, he worked 
for the development of citizen- 
ship through self-government in 
schools and colleges and was an 
outstanding civil leader in New 
York City, doing much to Im- 
plement his ideas there. 

The National Self-Government 
Committee, Inc. continues Rich- 
ard Welling's work and seeks to 
■'develop the alert citizens 
needed in a democracy by prac- 
tice in schools, colleges, and 
other youth groups."

Math Students 
Publish Book 

The members of a functional 
mathematics class at Savannali 
State College have published a 
mimeographed booklet entitled, 
"Exploring Mathematics," 

As stated in the introduction, 
the purpose of the manuscript 
is " to acquaint and re- 

new the basic steps in solving 
mathematical problems which 
confront us in class 

and in everyday life 

The contents of the book. 
problems, examples, illustra- 
tions, solutions, etc., were com- 
piled and edited by the students 
during the winter quarter as a 
final term project for the 

Containing 33 pages of regu- 
lar 8ij" X 11" size, the booklet 
touches on several areas of 
mathematics and somewhat re- 
sembles a professional manu- 
script in that clear, concise 
graphic and verbal illustrations 
appear on each topic in a step- 
by-step order. 

To undertake a project such 
as this would be quite easy, but 
to get the finished product "off 
the press" definitely requires 
certain amounts of sound-think- 
ing and the employment of or- 
ganizational skills on the part of 
the projecteers. 

Here is how the class went 
about writing the book;

a Joint effort on the part of all 
members of the class, certain 
committees were formed. 

The "Thinking Committee" 
was the core of the project, and 
its members were charged more 
or less with the responsibility of 
steering the undertaking 
through its various steps of de- 
velopment. This was done by 
taking suggestions from class 
members at regular intervals 
and allowing them from time to 
appraise the progress of the 
entire effort as the work went 
along. This committee co- 
ordinated the work at all levels 
of development. 

Of course there was typing to 
be done, proofs to be read, and 
records to be kept. These duties 
were performed by the Typing 
Committee, Proofreading Com-

An attempt by the faculty advlaer of the Sixteenth Annual 
Men's Festival to free the election of the Man of The Year from 
the usual lobbying effects of various campus factions is certainly 
a step in the right direction. 

In spite of these efforts it seems that the men still continued) 
to put fraternal ties above what is supposed to be the real purpose 
and objective of the yearly celebration. 

From the outset, even within one hour after a policy of non- 
fratcrnallsm was called for by the adviser, the men proceeded to 
elect officers in a manner very much like what has thus far been 
the custom— along fraternal lines. 

In view of the fact that the election of student council officers 
and campus queens will take place within a few weeks, we should 
be especially careful In seeing to it that the most qualified persons 
are nominated and elected. 

One very strong advocate of the tactics used in campus poli- 
tics during past elections defends the practice on grounds that his 
fraternal brothers are "always most qualified"— otherwise they 
would not be backed by the rest of the brothers, He did not stop 
there, but went on to say that under no circumstance would he vote 
against his brother and completely dismissed the possibility of a 
candidate not in the clique of campus politics being more qualified 
than his brother. 

It would be very difficult to find something more ridiculous. 

Looking at the issue for what its worth, we find that the whole 
situation is something akin to the present-day and quite famous 
philosophy of one group which holds that the members of another 
group are always incompetent and unable to hold positions where 
different kinds of skills and abilities are necessary. 

If there is one thing that campus politics at Savannah State 
needs, it is to be cleansed of nil such outside effects as the situation 
described in the preceding paraf;-aphs.

The calibre of conversation 
that transpires within a group. 
state, or nation is a clear indi- 
cator of the character of tlie 
people within. Conversation is 
an equal measure of intelligence, 
success, and potentiality. 

Only through rationalization 
can one claim tliat the conver- 
sation at Savannah State Col- 
lege is par for a supposedly "in- 
tellectual monastery." The mere 
fact that college students spend 
more time among students than 
among instructors is a vote for 
the importance of high calibre 
conversation in student circles. 
The discussion carried on by 
students while eating, resting, or 
waiting is of paramount impor- 
tance in today's "Push-button" 
oriented world. The value of 
tliis conversation is coupled with 
the value of your dollar, your fu- 
tui-e, and even the degree re- 
ceived from Savannah State Col- 

At Savannah State College, 
one seeking an Educational 
and rewarding conversation by 
browsing in the library; sitting 
in the college center; or visiting 
in one of the dormitories, with- 
out doubt, bends an ear in vain. 
An unbiased evalution of the 
conversation at Savannah State 
College must be described as "at 
a low ebb" or "nil." Both condi- 
tions are permeating. 

"What in the world are you 
talking about" must be of great 
concern to those who look to 

the college for leadersliip at a 
time when global war is pend- 
ing; living costs is rising; com- 
munism is spreading: automa- 
tion is emerging; race problems 
are mounting; and many other 
events are affecting us either 
negatively or positively. Where 
negative effects are inevitable 
a best defense is knowledge of 
the problems. To acquire this 
important knowledge, one must 
read, study, and exchange ideas. 
This "idea exchange" is best fa- 
cilitated by informal discussion 
or conversation with those of 
equal or greater knowledge. 

Savannah State College stu- 
dents have an urgent and col- 
lective obligation to alter, 
change, and shift their modes of 
conversation. No longer can 
fruitless gab passing across the 
table tops in the ''Rec" degrade 
and devalue the entire institu- 
tion. Not one minute more can 
one wearing the SSC insignia sit 
and talk in language indicative 
of grade school "dropouts." We 
cannot afford to discuss trivial 
issues when pertinent ones gov- 
ern our very existence. 

Every individual here has a 
duty to rebel today against fruit- 
less unrewarding conversation 
that is "full of sound and fury 
signifying nothing." 

Instructors, students, and or- 
ganizations must raise and 
answer the question. "What in 
the world are you talking about 
at Savannah State College."

For three days the girls wait 
for the night of the big dance 
featuring the famous jazz band. 
Their escorts arrive and they 
can hardly wait to get on the 
dance floor. Gee— but their 
evenings were spoiled! Their es- 
corts spent most of the evening 
standing around the band. 

One reason they put men's 
faces on money is that women 
are satisfied just to get their 
hands on it. 

In a conversation out of class, 
one can't get in a word for the 
person who has an answer for 
every question, knows about ev-

About the subject matter in

nothing and hears nothing.

President Is Seekiii«>; 
National Service Corps 

'From the Peace Corps 

Designed to Serve Community 
Needs in the United States 

The formation of a national 
service corps to meet pressing 
American social needs has been 
recommended by President Ken- 

Acting on the report of a" 
Cabinet-level task force set up to 
study the desirability of such a 
service corps, the President told 
Congress in his State of the 
Union message: 

"The overseas success of our 
Peace Corps Volunteers, most of 
them young men and women 
carrying skills and ideals to 
needy people, suggests the merit 
of a similar corps serving our 
own community needs: in 
mental hospitals, on Indian 
reservations, in centers for the 
aged or for young delinquents, 
in schools for the illiterate or the 
handicapped. As the idealism of 
our youth has served world 
peace, so can it serve the 
domestic tranquility." 

Response Predicted 

Findings of the task force in- 
dicate tliat American citizens — 
from college students to retired 
persons — would respond to a call 
to increase the potency of volun- 
teer-service organizations. 

The report foresees that the 
national service corps might thus 
spur millions of other Americans 
into volunteer work to meet the 
most critical social needs: 
health, education, recreation, 
and urban-or rural-community 

The President's task force 
recommended a program of 200 
to 500 corpsmen to start v/ork 
this year, an increase to 1,000 
within a year and to 5.000 within 
three years. 

Like the Peace Corps Volun- 
teers abroad, national service 
corpsmen would go only to com- 
munities to which they had been 
invited. These communities 
would be expected to plan and 
organize support programs which 
would ultimately release corps- 
men for service elsewhere 

The age minimum for national 
service corpsmen would be 18, 
They would serve for one year, 
with an option to sign up for a 
second. They would receive a 
living allowance and nominal 
termination pay. 

Interest in inviting service 
corpsmen has come from several 
sources, among them. South 
Dakota's Ogallala Sioux, who 
need assistance in housing de- 
velopment and irrigation; the 
state of Kentucky, which would 
like town-redevolpment assist- 
ance: and the state of Massa- 
chusetts, wliich would like corps- 
ment to work in institutions for 
the retarded and for the 
mentally ill. 

Gallup Poll Report 

The Gallup Poll recently re- 
ported that 62 per cent of per- 
sons questioned on the issue be- 
lieved that Congress should 
make funds available for a na- 
tional service corps. Opposed 
were 22 per cent, and 16 per cent 
had no opinion. 

The Gallup Poll reported that 
a typical comment on the issue 
came from a 49-year-old retired 
soldier in Omaha: "Let's do a 
little repair work in our own 
back yard."

Dear Fellow Students:

important matter to discuss 
which I think concerns all of 
us as collegians. This is the 
matter of the annual student 
elections. I have heard and I. am 
sure you have too. many un-

Raymond Johnson Gives Connnents 
On Atheism and Religions Faith 

By Elmer Thomas 

I was tired and I'm sure he 
was too after the long walk up 
to Sheppard's Lake. 

Raymond Johnson sat down, 
took off his shoes, and paused 
for a minute to rest his weary 

While sitting there the spar- 
kling water on the lake caught 
his attention, then his eyes 
moved about from the trees in 
bloom in an easterly direction, 
toward the clearing in the trees 
where the Sun was about to rise. 
"Wondrous world, isn't it, boy?" 
"Quite wondrous, sir." I re- 

"You know, scientists claim 
that modern man has been on 
this earth for more than 200,000 
years— and with all the knowl- 
edge he has gained in that 
length of time, the mystery of 
the origin of things is still as 
puzzling as it was when old Nee 
roamed through these parts." 

"Neanderthal man — that's 
what the archeologists and his- 
torians call him 

I smiled slightly and laughed 

Yes sir, many great 
minds have pondered over the 
question of whether or not some- 
body's up there pulling the 
strings or not. Some say that 
he started the wheels to turn- 
ing and then left the whole 
thing alone. Some say that what 
I'm saying now and what 
you're thinking now are just a 
few lines in the universal 

"Then there are the oth- 
"The others, sir?" 

Yes. those who for some 
reason or another say that this 
all began with an accident — no 
String-Puller — no Regulator- 
just a long chain of actions and 
reactions stemming from some 
physical occurance eons of cen- 
turies ago. I guess their's would 
be about the soundest explana- 
tion if they could explain the 
first reaction." 

"One thing that has alway.s 
puzzled me. Mr, Johnson, is 
whether or not the entities of 
■Free Will' and 'Divine Provi- 
dence' can exist simultaneously," 
He looked at me with a ques- 
tion mark in his eyes, then 
stated; "I'm not so sure I under- 
stand you, son." 

"Well how is it possible for 
the Almighty to know exactly 
what is going to happen in the 
future of the world and men. 
at the same time, have the 
opportunity to choose be 
tween courses of actions in dif- 
ferent situations. To illustrate 
my point, suppose I was a gang- 
ster by profession, and I am just 
casually walking around in the 
bank building. It seems that 
after I 'size up the situation' I 
might or might not decide to rob 
the place. In fact it seems that 
there would be an endless num- 
ber of things I might decide to 
do— maybe even apply for a 
loan. If the Almighty knows in 
advance that I'm going to take 
a particular course of action, it 
seems that I don't have much of 
a choice in deciding what do do." 
Just then a turtle appeared 
from behind a tree and moved 
along past us. Mr. Johnson 
picked up an old bottomless tin 
tub and encircled the creature. 

He then attempted to answer 
my question in the following 

"If this rascal doesn't climb 
over the sides of the tub, I can 
pretty well direct his course. At 
the same time, he can make a 
few decisions too. To a certain 
extent, his free will and regu- 
latory actions can exist simul- 

I then began to wonder why I 
didn't think of it in that way. 

"Good heavens, its half past 
eleven, don't you think its about 
time for us to be on our way. 
Fifty miles is a long ways to 
walk. We'd better leave now if 
we're going to get back home." 

you like lor your name to be 
the subject of a heated contro- 
versy or an undesirable scandal? 
If you answer in the negative, 
then, I am confident that no 
one else would either. 

So. this month during our col- 
lege-wide election period, let's 
do everything humanly possible 
to make this the cleanest and 
most fruitful election in the liis- 
tory of Savannah State College. 
Students remember to vote for 
the candidates by their qualifi- 
cations and not for biased and 
maligned reasons. If your friends 
are in contention for the office 
of Student Council President or 
"Miss Savannah State College" 
and you don't think they are 
qualified, cast your all-im- 
portant ballot for the persons 
whom you feel will represent you 
and project the college's image 
in the best possible manner at 
all times. 

Again. I caution you. Vote with 
integrity and pride. Don't be 
side-tracked by petty differences 
and emotions. Remember human 
relations are often severed by 
vicious tongues.

A Touch of All Artist 

Work of Tompkins High Students 
Impressive to Intern Teacher 

By Veronica Lynne Owens 
The nation's high school class- 
rooms of today are literally bub- 
bling over with budding and 
original talent. Certainly, the 
high schools in Savannah are no 
exception to this rule. One In 
particular that is noted for its 
outstanding Wolverine football 
team, is currently proving that 
talent at their school is not an 
ephemeral attribute. 

During this Spring season at 
Tompkins High School, visible 
evidence can be seen of a "touch 
of an artist" at work. A modest 
male student presently enrolled 
at the school is certainly indica- 
tive of the preceding classic 
phrase. This young man's ar- 
tistic ability is, unmistakably, 
innate. This is mainly true be- 
cause he draws with the skill, 
depth and insight of a profes- 

sionally trained artist even 
though he is young in years. 
Even a cursory glance at some 
of his work reveals that his 
lines, dimensions and profiles 
have method in their arrange- 
ment. And above all, his spe- 
cialty seems to be accentuation 
and intricate detailing. 

Consequently, valid evidence 
of his specialty may be seen in 
an attractive English Literature 
bulletin board display in one of 
his classes. The eye-catching 
bulletin board depicts some of 
the leading characters in The 
Canterbury Tales venturing to 
their destination, Tabard Inn, 
The display is sketched in cut- 
out form and each character 
seems to be animate and able to 
communicate with the viewers. 
However, this young man's 

originality and uniqueness, by 
no means climaxes with his 
drawing ability. His ideas, too, 
are quite original. This fact is 
exemplifited by his original and 
quite appropriate bulletin board 
title. The Canterbury Trail. 

The talented, young artist has 
been drawing since his early 
childhood. It is apparent that 
with each passing year this 
young man's ability In art has 
become refined and polished like 
a fine jewel. This means that 
the future is the only thing that 
may reveal whether or not this 
Tompkins High Scliool senior 
will be another Rembrandt, Da 
Vinci or Reuben, It must be 
remembered, however, that 
possibilities for advancement are 
unlimited wherever there Is a 
"touch of an artist. . . ."

even monotonous because of the

same criticism frequently leveled 
against present forms of ritual. 

Of the 67 colleges who checked

"Mass" was sacrilegious. Many 
agreed that It could be used only 
on special occasions or that it 
would be a long time before 
churches would accept it. A few

all for the new liturgy also had 
some reservations, but the ma- 
jority felt it had something new 
to say; something important to 
add to the worship experience.

Today there are in the United

60 per cent of them are public

on income from tuition, contri-

junior community colleges 
should include terminal, tech-

many kinds of adult education 
and community services. 

Community colleges, if avail- 
able in the South, could offer 
opportunities for post-high

all types who will or can not at-

that the percentage of high

The students left as a result 
of racial discrimination, poor 
living conditions and the Bul- 
garian government's refusal to 
allow the formation of an All- 
African Students' Union lAASU) 
in the country. Reports com- 
piled from National Unions of 
Students and other sources Indi- 
cate that a minimum of 93 stu- 
dents have now either voluntar- 
ily left or been deported for their 
activities in the formation of the

for their departures. 

In a letter addressed to the

that "in our view, tlie Bulgarian 
authorities are guilty of disre-

the African students in your 
country and, therefore, guilty of 
grievances the racial discrimina- 
tion to which our fellow African 
students have been subjected by

complicity of your National 
Union of Students for failing to 
represent the grievances of the 
African students to the Bul- 
garian authorities."

Il'^s Time lo Make a Shift Into Spring 

By Veronica Lynne Owens 



"New. new and ultra-new!" 
That's what high-fashion Spring 
designers like St. Laurent are 
screaming this season. However, 
at times, they are in disputed 
fervor over exactly where you 
coeds' waistlines should be. But, 
there is one new faslilon item 
that they all agree is fabulous 
and provocative. That high- 
fashion item just happens to b^^ 
the sassy, swirly, dream-of-a 
"Shift" that you've heard so 
mucli about. Why so dreamy? 
Well, it is because It has the 
distinction of being one of the 
most attractive, comfortable and 
durable garments introduced 
this Spring, 

Fashionably speaking, tlie new 
"Shift" is the answer to every 
female's prayer. Just tlilnk of 
it, , , The easy, flowing lines 
of the "Shift" make it possible 
for it to be worn by all figures 
and heights. In the sheath styles, 
you will find that some of the 
dresses are nipped in at the 
waistline and some others are 
full and boxy. There's still 
another style that you may pur- 
chase in the foxy "Shift." This 
group is composed of flare, 
wrap - around skirts complete 
with narrow sashes to flatter 
your waistiines- 

The "Shift" dress is designed 
mainly for leisure, casual and 
street wear. Adding to the 
fashion appeal of this swingy, 
new garmet Is the kaleidoscopic 
color sclieme from which you 
have to select. You may be 
wondering, "just what are the 
popuiar colors?" Well, girls, you 
name it and you'll find it. Every 
color and hue of the rainbow is 
seen in the "Shift." It may be 
purchased in such leading 
fabrics as seersucker, denim, 
poplin, hopsacking. sailcloth, 
terrycloth. linen, twill, gingham. 
cord and synthetic blends. So. 
coeds, if you want to be "in" on 
the latest fashion trend and fad, 
you simply cannot let another 
day go by without making your 
"S-S-S-H-I-F-T" into Spring! 

Other cute and saucy style.- 
that have been introduced thi.^ 
Spring season , are the f la rf ■ , 
back-wrap skirts. Simply "ador- 
able" they are! Most of them aro 
cut in the famous A-line that 
accentuates and complement.s 
youthful figures. This new look 
in the casual skirt has invaded 
college everywhere and 
caught on like wild fire. It's to understand why since 
the flare, wrap-around skirts do 
feature a "new look." Other out- 

standing features of these skirts 
are tlie self-belts, slim, leather 
belts and narrow, matching 

In addition to being attractive 
on tlie outside, the wrap-around 
skirt also features hidden 
beauty. Tlijs merely means that 
some of the skirts are lined with 
bright cotton material. And 
what, I ask you, can be more 
daring and provocative than just 
a "whisper of exposure?" They 
also feature a minimum of 
buttons that don't quite make it 
to the hemline. This accounts for 
the peek-a-boo exposure effect. 

And, of course, we know that 
tliese skirts cannot be worn 
alone. To complete the casual 
outfit, however, pert and smart 
little blouses have been intro- 
duced. A few that are included 
in this group are checked, ging- 
ham blouses. These feature the 
modest Peter-pan collar and 
roll-up sleeves. Another popular 
style is the classic shirtwaist 
blouse. They feature the soft 
convertible collar and cuffed, 
three-quarter length sleeves. 
Those are just a few available 
styles in blouses. And just think, 
tliey all may be yours simply for 
the asking. 

Spring, the fashions, and you! 
Those are the perfect ingredients 
for all of you coeds to blend to 
achieve a supreme delight in the 
fashion world this Spring. So, 
while you start to mix your 
recipe, until next issue. I will re- 
main very "Fashionably Yours." 

"Having now read the Consti- 
tution of the projected All-Afri- 
can Students' Union of Bul- 
garia." states the president of 
the National Union of Ghana 
Students (NUGS) in a letter to 
the Bulgarian ambassador in 
Accra, "there can be no doubt 
that the union was intended to 
be nothing more than a genuine 
student organization to give ex- 
pression to African student opin- 
ion in Bulgaria and to foster bet- 
ter relations between the Afri- 
can students and the people of 
Bulgaria." Commenting on ra- 
cial discrimination in Bulgaria, 
the president of NUGS went on 
to "protest in the strongest pos- 
sible terms against the con- 
tempt, disrespect, indignity and 
inhumanity with which the Af- 
rican Students in Bulgaria were 
treated," and to "call upon tlie 
Government of Bulgaria to take 
every possible step to end racial 
discrimination in the socialist 
state of Bulgaria," 

Finally, in an open letter to 
African students in Bulgaria, 
the National Union of South Af- 
rican Students (NUSASI states 
that "NUSAS, which knows from 
experience wliat the evil of ra- 
cialism can do to a society, and 
which knows the difficulties that 
an organization such as the All- 
African Students' Union in Bul- 
garia faces when it is disliked by 
the authorities and when it i 
persecuted, wishes to convey its 
solidarity to African students 
who have left or who want to 
leave Bulgaria Now that 

the union has been outlawed and 
its leaders presecuted and im- 

Nearly Fifteen Hundred Seniors 
Win Woodrow Wilson Fellowshsips 

PRINCETON. N, J— A recruit- 
ing drive for future college 
teachers culminated today in 
the award of first year Wood- 
row Wilson Fellowships to 1,475 
college students and honorable 
mention to 1,154 others. 

Each Fellowship covers tuition 
and fees for the first year at the 
graduate school of the Fellow's 
choice, plus a stipend of $1,500 
and dependency allowances. Sir 
Hugh Taylor, president of the 
Woodrow Wilson National Fel- 
lowship Foundation, said in 
making the announcement. 

Norman B. Elmore, SSC Senior 
Englisii Major, received "Honor- 
able Mention" in this year's 

"Committees of eminent col- 
lege professors and deans picked 
this year's winners from among 
9.767 candidates named by fac- 
ulty members at 907 colleges in 
the United States and Canada," 
Sir Hugh noted, and added, "It is 
our hope that these newly-elect- 
ed Woodrow Wilson Fellows will 
continue as decisively as possible 
toward the attainment of the 
Ph.D. Toward that end we have 
chosen candidates who can meet 
the foreign language require- 
ments of their graduate schools, 

"All these winners— the larg- 
est number we have selected in 
any one year thus far — were 
chosen as 'good bets' for college 
teaching. We hope they will fol- 
low that career, yet we do not 
hold them to such a firm com- 
mitment. We ask only that they

The picture below shows a 
group of students, in the 
Seminar in Elementary Curri- 
culum class, dramatizing an 
excerpt from the adventures of 
Robin Hood. This Project was 
one of six planned by the stu- 
dents under the direction of the 
instructor to acquaint the stu- 
dents with various types of 
children's literature to enable 
the prospective elementary 
school teachers to teach the 
Language Arts more effectively. 
Also, to help the students de- 
velop more knowledge and skill 
in the Language Arts area, the 
students are doing creative 

writings and developing poetry 

In order that the students may 
develop more knowledge and 
skills in all phases of the course, 
the students pretend that they 
are actually a faculty. Their 
classroom appears to be one that 
may be actually found in an 
elementary school. Of course the 
faculty has inservice teachers' 
meetings wherein all of the 
teachers, at different grade 
levels, compete in presenting 
materials in a unique fashion to 
their colleagues. These presenta- 
tions are based on extensive 
reading and research in each of 
the four phases of the course.

Awards by the Woodrow Wil- 
son National Fellowship Founda- 
tion are made possible through 
grants totaling $52 million from 
the Ford Foundation which since 
1957 has supported the expanded 
Woodrow Wilson Fellowship pro- 

Most of this year's Fellowship 
winners are in the Humanities 
or Social Sciences, but there are 
also 309 scientists among them. 

In order that those winning 
honorable mention may be 
chosen to receive alternate 
awards from universities or 
other sources, their names are 
now being circulated among the 
graduate schools of the United 
States and Canada. 

In addition to awarding first 
year Fellowships for graduate 
study, the Woodrow Wilson Na- 
tional Fellowship Foundation 
has two other programs: 1, Sub- 
ventions to graduate, schools 
where Fellows are enrolled, to 
augment funds available to the 
schools for the support of gradu- 
ate students beyond the first 
year, and 2. Dissertation Fel-

years or less. 

University Official 
Proposes Elimination 
Of Student Elections 

—In an open letter to the Uni- 
versity of Chattanooga's student 
body president. Dr. August 
Eberle, University Provost, and 
Chairman of the Regulations 
Committee, suggested the possi- 
bility of eliminating student 

Dr. Ebeiie recommended that 
campus politics be reorganized 
in such a manner that the hold 
of social organizations will be 
broken, saying, "It is the feeling 
of the Committee that the accu- 
mulation of election evils centers 
around the domination of stu- 
dent government by social or 
ganizations and the consequent 
bitter rivalry at elections." 

Dr. Eberle stated that the 
members of the Regulations 
Commitee were very anxious for 
"... procedures (to) be changed 
to provide for new and unifying 
campus political alignments," 
He also stated that the members 
of the committee would be glad 
to assist in any way possible if 
such assistance was desired. 

As an individual, Dr, Eberle 
said that he intended , . , to rec- 
ommend to the Regulations 
Committee, to the administra- 
tion, and to the faculty that stu- 
dent elections be abolished un- 
less there is immediate drastic 
improvement in the carrying out 
of elections and until such time 
as there is good evidence that 
the students are carrying out 
successfully these self-govern- 
ing activities."

Noted Educator 
To Speak Here 
During Library 

The Savannah State College 
Library will open Us National 
Library Week activities with a 
lecture by the noted American 
educator and scholar. Dr. Harold 
Taylor, former president of 
Sarah Lawrence College, on

5 p-m. in the College Library. 

Dr. Taylor is the author of 
more than 200 articles in book.s 
and journals of philosophy and 
education; he is an editor, 
teacher of philosophy and the 
author of Art and the Intellect 
and On Education and Freedom, 
his major work to date. It was 
while teaching philosophy over 
a period of six years at the Uni-

Taylor first became interested in 
experimental education and in 
the modern educational ideas 
with which he later became 
identified at Sarah Lawrence 

Harold Taylor is an educator 
who practices what he preaches. 
During the McCarthy period he 
was a vigorous leader in the 
fight for the freedom of univer- 
sities and teachers, and through- 
out his career has taken a 
prominent role in the struggle 
against racial and religious in- 
tolerance. He has consistently 
tried out his educational ideas 
in practice, both in the class- 
room, in the Wisconsin and 
Sarah Lawrence student bodies, 
and in the community. His 
articles, speeches and television 
appearances have received na- 
tional attention and have dealt 
with the major political and 
social controversies of his 
generation. While administering 
Sarah Lawrence College and in- 
creasing the range of its edu- 
cational experiments — in music, 
theater and dance, in graduate 
education, teacher preparation, 
children's theater and music, 
adult education and foreign 
studies — he remained closely in 
touch, as a teacher, not only 
with the students and faculty 
at Sarah Lawrence College, but 
with students and scholars in 
every part of the United States 
and many foreign countries. 

After serving for fourteen 
years as the President of Sarah 
Lawrence College, Dr. Taylor re- 
tired from his post in August 
195D to devote himself once more 
to teaching and writing. Sin:e 
then he has travelled in Asia 
and Russia under a special grant 
from the Ford Foundation to 
confer with political leaders, in- 
tellectuals, educators, students, 
artists and writers about the 
Asian countries- Since his return 
to this country. Dr. Taylor has 
been lecturing at colleges and 
universities and writing tv/o 
books, Art and Education and 
Education and Social Chang^e,

feasibility of founding a world 
university. He is a trustee of the 
Putney School and of the Insti- 
tute for International Order,

DePauw Students Give to Freedom Fund 

government of DePauw Univer-

National Student Association 
this week that It had raised 
$2,500 in two days for USNEA's

The average college man wheels around in slacks and sports jackets 
every day and most nights. But when the big denl or the big date 
comes up—find it always does— he has to have that all-important 
"dress-up suit." With Spring definitely in the air, and young men's 
fancies starting to wheel and deal, let's take a look at suits on the 
Spring nntl Summer scene, 

WELCOME BACK TO LINEN— nebounding in fashion importance 
this Spring is the llax suit — natural linen in natural shades. Most 
of these classic warm-weather suits are cut on natural shoulder 
lines, with straight-hanging jackets, narrow notched lapels, cen- 
ter vents and, naturally, tapered trousers. The natural, neutral 
tones of linen will go anywhere you go — in style — and they're a 
natural fr.r dress-up wear straight through Spring and Summer. 

BLUES BLOW COOL— colors are dark this Spring, headlined by 
blues and blue-grays in sharkskins and muted plaids with deep 
casts. You'll also spot some dark blue unfinished worsted, light- 
weight flannels and serges for those definitely dress-up. after-dark 
occasions. And cool is the word on suiting materials. They're light, 
including blends of worsteds and polyesters that are comfortable, 
porous and dressy, The accent is on light, cool, comfortable fit for 
the warm weather months ahead. 


sucker sets the pace this Summer. This 
traditicnal hot-weather-wear feature has 
usually been seen in the traditional seer- 
sucker white and light-colored stripes, 
But new deep and dark stripes and light- 
toned seersucker plaids are on the scene 
for the first time this year, and they're a 
good bet to steal the "how. T?ke a look at 
the spiead of seersucker colors — both 
stripes and plaids — in classic all-cotton 
lightiveights and the new Summer-weight 
polyester and cotton blends. They're 
bright, light and right for Summer. 

PICKING UP THE TAB-Way out m front 

in dress-shirt popularity with young men 
is the snap-tab collar. Gleaming white 
broadcloth shirts, with barrel cuffs and 
tabbed collars, are your best bet for 
dress-up occasions. Less formal are white 
oxford tab collars and medium-spread col- 
lar white oxford button-downs, both with 
barrel cuffs. 

TIEING IT UP — No young man's wardrobe is complete without a 
spread of regimental stripes on his tie rack — they're right for any 
occasion, short of a formal dinner. Figures this Spring are seen in 
muted prints and small, subdued designs against deep, dark back- 
grounds. For a change of pace, and for wear with your new wide- 
striped shirts, take a look at the narrow solid knits that are return- 
ing to fashion favor, 

THE ONE-MAN COMBO not the name of a swinging jazz solo, 
but a chie to the return of another fashion concept — matching and 
related tie and handkerchief sets. You can choose a related color 
breast pocket handkerchief, picking up one of the colors in your 
tie — or take your cue from the new Continental matching sets 
that duplicate-the designs, both stripes and figures, in both the tie 
and handkerchief. 

GEniNG TO THE BOTTOM OF THINGS the.qukkest ».iy to 

find out what's news in shoes. You're always dressed well in a pair 
of smooth-grained black slip-ons. Mocassin design, with a moder- 
ate wing-tip, is the most popular model, and jet-black is the per- 
fect underpinning for this Spring's black, dark gray and dark 
blue suits. 


Spring and Summer is new lightweight 
headgear. Narrow snap brims are the rule 
in felt hats. Intermediate to dark shades 
of gray and olive will coordinate with 
your new Spring tailored wear. Nearly 
needless to say, your hat completes the 
picture of the well-dressed young man, 
particulaVly so on any dress-up occasion.

The tests involved are the Ad-

Achievement Tests of the Col-

Board, Normally, achievement 
tests are given in a number of 
subjects. For the present those 
which may earn a waiver of a 
freshman course at the College 
are English, mathematics, mod- 
ern language, biology, physics, 
chemistry and history. 

The College has been a coop- 
erating institution in the Ad- 
vanced Placement Program since 
1960, However, because it is 
available to so few students, the 
present program — which seems 
more all-embracing — was pro- 
posed and accepted. Any stu- 
dent who is freed of the demand 
to take a freshman course will 
be admitted into a course on the 
sophomore level. 

The student still must meet 
the number of hours demanded 
for graduation but will take ad-

junior and senior years to com-

courses waived. Choice of the 
subject to be studied and the 
area of interest will be made by 
the student.

SSC Announces In-Service Institute For Secondary Teachers 

The Savannah State College Chemistry Department announces 
an In-service Institute in Chemistry for secondary school teachers 
of Chemistry and General Science to be sponsored from September 
28, 1963 to June 6, 1964 by the National Science Foundation, 

Objectives of the Institute 

11) To offer to science teach- 
ers, within a radius of approxi- 
mately 50-75 miles of Savannah 
State College, fundamental 
courses In chemistry. <2) To in- 
crease the teacher's capacity to 
motivate students into science 
careers, i3i To create in the high 
school teacher a greater aware- 
ness of and appreciation for the 
work of prominent scientist. 
This will also serve as a means 
of stimulation and enthusiasm. 
(4) To help fill out a void in 
the teachers' backgrounds, in 
subject matter, so that they may 
begin an advanced degree pro- 
gram, at some graduate school 
without having so many under- 
graduate prerequisites to take. 


Prospective participants 
should: II) hold a bachelor's de- 
gree, and be employed as a 
teacher of chemistry or general 
science, grades 7-12. I2) have 
taught and/or held bachelor's 
degrees for at least three years 
(3) show apparent ability to 
secure sufficient benefits from 
the Institute. 


Costs of tuition and travel for 
participants selected will be 
borne by the National Science 
Foundation. This includes $10 
for textbooks. Each participant 
will b? reimbursed for travel ex- 
penses to the Institute at the 
rate of seven I7) cents per mile.

The first All-College Assembly 
was held in Meldrim Auditorium 
on June 13. The speaker for the 
occasion was Dr. W. K. Payne, 
President of the college. 

In his welcoming speech Dr. 
Payne described the Summer 
school audience as "unique." 
This uniqueness, he went on to 
say, was bound up in the fact 
that many of the students were 
in-service teachers. 

Dr. Payne congratulated them 
for making the decision to at- 
tend the summer session. Any- 
one who attends the summer 
session, according to Dr. Payne, 
has spirit, vision, and outlook. 
This is a good sign, he said, be- 
cause the times Indicate that 
education is challenged. 

Dr. E. K. Williams Director of 
the Summer School introduced 
Dr. Payne. He described Dr.

By William D. Hagins 

It is evident tiiat the American Negro is tired of being denied 
first-class cltlzcnsiilp. The recent demonstrations that have de- 
veloped throughout the South, give evidence that the Negro no 
longer can accept being treated as second-class citizens. 

What are Ihe reasons for the New Negro movement? We use 
the term "new Negro," because the Negro of today is determined 
to obtain the rights which were granted him one hundred years 
ago by the Emancipation Proclamation. The Negro's reasons are 
quite simple; his philosophy is even more concise. His reasons are 
that he wants to take his place in an American society as a person 
who con share the responsibility of a democracy. Next, he wants 
to show tlio world that he can do more than play ball, sing, or 
dance. The Negro Is saying. "If I have the chance. I can be a 
leader in politics, scientific research, and other aspects of human 
endeavors. The Negro's philosophy is that, he is an American 
citizen, and he desires to live in a country which his forefather 
fought and died in every major American war. 

The nation is now feeling the effect of the New Negro move- 
ment. Just recenlly President Kennedy sent a Civil Rights Bill to 
Congress, stating why discrimination in America must cease. This 
will mark the Ilrst time in many years that a President of the 
United States has spoken so boldly against discrimination, and it 
appears that he int^ends to do something about it. Now it is up 
to the men in Congress to show to America and to the world tliat 
they are persons who believe in the Constitution of the United 
States, and that tliey believe In the fact that a person cannot be 
judged by the color of his skin, but only by his merits. 


Pour years ago when I left SSC, I carried with me a reservoir 
of unforgettable memories, knowing that I was leaving a place with 
memories beyond measures. Now I ask myself, what has happened 
to SSC? With tlie passing of just four years upon my return, it 
seems as though it has been a decade. 

When I enrolled for the summer session, the whole student 
body, to me. had changed. Have I lost my perspective, or has my 
quest for knowledge lessened? The closeness in fraternal brother- 
hood and sisterhood was not found Has this type tiling been 
carried away with the tides of bigotry and hate? If so, then, you 
should recaptlvate. 

The voice of the old school is calling for a love that would 
cause us to become our brother's keeper; not only because we are 
human beings, but also because of the type of guidance which is 
given at SSC. 

I would surmise— and I grant you— that the students enrolled 
here are of the same nature I was four years ago; but they have 
failed to look Into the mirror of life and time and to see them- 
selves, I ask you to check your attitudes, dispositions, and most 
of all your responsibilities; the impressions that you give Tiere will 
be lasting ones. 

Some day you will leave SSC and take your respective places 
in your community; therefore, it behooves each of you to start 
and set forth rules of ethics that will be acceptable by society 
'there are many pebbles on the beach). 

As a graduate of SSC. I am trying to call these things to your 
attention, whereby you may see yourselves and take a different

"Fearful and fretful however it be, your attitude leaves an 
astounding impression with me." 

Frequently and transpiringly, conversations with alumni <or 
with students! yield expressions that show forth their regard for 
Savannah State College. The attitudes displayed during the course 
of some such conversations leave an impression of dismay. 

Whether students or alumni we have some moral responsibility 
toward 'Motheri SSC. If she "be" nothing, we are nothing: "the 
tree is known by the fruit it bears, the quality product is the better 
trademark of a business," etc. 

Seriously my comrades, how Is it that we permit ourselves to 
develop sucli an unfair and grisiy attitude towards the school of 
our choice! And. I have assumed that we all chose to study within 
the walls of SSC; I did. However free were we in choosing, the fact 
remains that we chose SSC, Some say: "It was more convenient; 
economically, I chose; my parents could not afford to send me any- 
where eisc; I simply couldn't do any better," Whatever excuse we 
render for having chosen to study at SSC. it does not atone for a 
total pessimistic view of (Motheri SSC, 

My contention is simple yet. comprehensive. It is not illogical 
to feel that SSC has some finer qualities: the total school environ- 
ment can not be deemed worthless. There is some good to be found 
within the framework of SSC. And, if we do not utilize the good 
that is within her to destroy the bad that is without her. the bad 
without win inevitably destroy the good within. 

Why is it that some of us really feel all negative (at least, try 
to make it appear as though we even despise the moss laden 
oaks)? What generated such despair? Who is primarily responsible 
for our despondency; where and when did these attitudes envelope? 
It is possible that the all inclusive answer — if it were given — 
would be purely subjectivism. In great part. I feel, the pessimistic 
viewers should examine their conscious, analyze their quality traits 
before unjustly imposing the entire responsibility on SSC, 

Everyone is not willing to assume responsibilities, and it is 
easier to cite the inadequacies of others rather than admit self- 
deficiencies. Really. Savannah State College could not be guilty of 
all the litigation attributed to her stead. 

It may appear that I am trying to defend SSC, If you think 
I am, then, and only then is it true. But. this feeling of defense is 
peculiar to ail defenders of iMotheri SSC; therefore, this is food 
for thought in that it shows respect for the counsel. 

Irrespective of your verbal reproach, you are perpetually acting 
in good faith for your schol or Alma Mater, However, persistent 
reprovals of such nature igulhblei can be detrimental to (Mother) 

I find it difficult actually to believe that some of us are aware 
of our attitudes — certainly not the injustices — imposed on our de- 
fenseless Alma Mater. It is time for us to think earnestly about 
our position in relationship with our Alma Mater, especially what 
we say. To put it simply: "There is one thing in this world we 
must guard with care, of whom we speak, to whom we speak, how. 
when, and where." 

It is amazing how our prejudices possess us throughout our 
daily Jives, Some say it is simply "Preferential Thinking." 
For myself, earth-bound and fettered to the scene 
of my activities. I confess that I do feel the differences 
of mankind, national and individual. ... I am, in 
plainer words, a bundle of prejudices — made up of 
likings and dislikings— the veriest thrall to sympathies, 
apathies, antipathies. 
If SSC were as Charles Lamb (human and scholarly), she would 
haxe exacted the preceding quote thereby proclaiming the ill effects 
of such a bundle of prejudices. She has to withstand the veriest 
thrall of sympathies, apathies, and antipathies. 

Is this a just reward for what we have achieved through the 
beneficence of SSC? How should we repay her? 

My fellow alumni of the pessnnistic realm, evaluate yourselves 
for self-evaluation is essential to your relations with SSC. Examine 
your present status in life and proportionately cite the environ- 
ments wherein preparations for each flight were made. 

I can agree, there are unfavorable features about our Alma 
Mater; I can name a few, but such is true in any school, college 
or university. Generally, the undersirabies are part of life. There- 
fore, it is a challenge to discover what makes the misgivings here 
with SSC more controversial than those compared with another 
institution of higher learning. It has to be the humanity of a 
controversial nature that infiltrates the walls of SSC 

It is evident that such a negative attitude towards SSC is not 
widespread, and I sincerely feel that the few of us guilty of this 
should examine our conscious. After careful analysis. I am con- 
fident we shall reconsider. "How good and pleasant it is for 
brethern to dwell together in unity." Shall we "savor" the good 
will of our Alma Mater. 

Idle gossip does not seek to rectify any irregularities in our 
college program. When some few of us seek to downgrade the 
status of SSC, we are serving a like injustice to ourselves, 

I am curious to know how we manage to pursue a course of 
academic studies towards a baccalaureate degree and not maintain 
a sense ot loyalty towards the institution conferring such degrees. 
Loyalty is fundamental to truths; loyalty begins with one's self: 
"Be true to thine ownself and this should come as does the night 
after day, or how can one be true to any man in any way." 

There has been no survey to determine the extent of such 
attitudes of referral; however. I am confident this is indicative of 
the minority. Nevertheless, this can not go unnoticed, and I feel 
everyone associated with Savannah State College should become 
more conscious of the descriptive representation presented. We 
should not loosely epitomize SSC. 

If one comes to SSC with nothing, does nothing while here, 
he should expect to leave with nothing. And. it is this nothing 
that condemns the virtues of our Alma Mater. 

She is often evaluated by those not qualified to evaluate, de- 
graded for having opened her arms to receive those seeking to 
receive more than they will ever be able to contribute, SSC is 
limited when it comes to performmg academic miracles; this is 
expecting too much. 

There are enormous factors surrounding the negative attitude 
displayed by the minority — some say the program of various schools 
within our realm; others, a few instructors destined to hinder In 
lieu of help. , . . 

You help alleviate the situation but examine "self" first. 

Requiem For an 
Athletic Projirani 

By Boast Cephas Carswell. Jr. 

Many years SSC has failed 
to recruit the better athletes 
due to the lack of finances. In 
fact, students with the ability to 
play sports are going to other 
colleges and universities because 
of the high scholarships and 
grant-in-aids offered. 

SSC. in some instances, is able 
to get good athletes but is un- 
able to keep 
them. We have 
b een getting 
players from 
states as far 
away as Ohio, 
Indiana. Flori- 
da. South and 
North Carolina, 
Alabama and other states, but 
what is actually the reason for 
not keeping them? 

For the last few years athletes 
at SSC have not received what 
they had anticipated while at- 
tending school. The athletes 
that will come here in Septem- 
ber, and. in all probability, they 
will work hard to build a good 
team, and as soon as the season 
is over they have to start worry- 
ing and wondering about funds 
which will enable them to com- 
plete a full academic school 
year. It is a bad reflection on 
the college as a whole, when 
players from other schools hold 
a conversation with our players, 
they are too embarrassed to 
talk about the situation. Why? 
Because the school fails to ful- 
fill its obligations! The school 
recruits these athletes from 
other cities and states, and 
promises are made that are not 
kept. After they get here, they 
find that it is different, 
especially after the season is 

The writer has known athletes 
that have had to leave the col- 
lege, because they owed the col- 
lege a great deal of money, when 
they were supposed to have 
been receiving a grant-in-aid. 

During the years of 1959-63, 
SSC lias had a successful basket- 
ball team. The team has partici- 
pated in many tournaments and 
came out as champions, but for 
some reason or another, the 
players seem to be confronted 
with the same problem of having 
to stay in school. 

The state doesn't appropriate 
funds for athletic programs and 
other extra-curricular purposes, 
therefore, the school has to de- 
pend on the alumni association 
and other cliaritable organiza- 
tions for their support. There- 
fore, the alumni association 
should have other means of 
getting financial support other 
than donations, because the 
amount of money given to the 
school for grant-in-aids is not 
enough to take care of a good 
athletic program for a college 
such as SSC. 

The people of the community 
and a large number of the stu- 
dents have lost interest in the 
atliletic program. They claim 
that the teams lose too many 
games for them to "waste" their 
"money" and "time" to come out 
to see a "losing team" play ball. 
It will be a long time before 
SSC's Athletic Program ad- 
vances to a status that will 
challenge its competitors, if the 
athletic program continues to 
receive this kind of support. 

The alumni association along 
with a representative group from 
the student body should sit down 
and discuss ways and means of 
raisin-? finances in order to keep 
building up the athletic program 
to what it should be — that is— 
second to none.

Professor Leroy Brown, instructor in metal work, demonstrates 
the operation of the dial test indicator. The dial indicator Is gradu- 
ated to read thousandths of an inch so that practically any re- 
quired degree of accuracy may be obtained. 

The indicator is also used to check alignments, amount of con- 
cavity, wobble of material, centering and many other uses.

Advanced Electricity, Metal Work In 
jartnient of Engineering Technology 

By Levern Carter 

The Department of Engineering Technology, under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Clyde W. Hall, offers for the first session Engineering 
Drawing, Advanced Electricity, and Advanced Metal Work. Engi- 
neering Drawing is a basic cours ewhich deals with the following 
topics: (1) nomenclature of drafting instruments and equipments; 
(2) letetring; (3) geometrical construction, and (4) multi-view 

This course is a combination __^ 

of both lecture and laboratory. 
Each student is required to en- 
gage in drafting room practices, 
which will include experiences 
in each of the above-stated in- 
structional areas of the course. 

The class is composed of the 
following in-service teachers: 
Willie Nell Wright, instructor,

School, Savannah; Willie Sim- 
mons, instructor, Harralson 
County Consolidated School. 
Waco; and Alophus Williams, in- 
structor. Scott Junior High 
School. Savannah. 

Advanced Electricity, under 
the direction of Professor Leroy 
Brown, is designed to enable the 
students to get an understand- 
ing of AC and DC electric motor 
principles, circuity, and con- 
struction; to check service and 
rewind fractional horse-power 
motors, and to learn and prac- 
tice safe work habits of the elec- 
trical industry. Upon completion, 
it is hoped that the students 
will have a working knowledge 
of the outlined content.

By Levern Carter 
Savannah State College, Di- 
vision of Technical Science, in 
co-operation with the Georgia 
State Division of Vocational 
Education, is sponsoring an elec- 
tronics workshop from July 22 
through August 9. 

A specialist — to be named later 
from the headquarters* instruc- 
tional staff of the Philco Cor- 
poration—will be in charge of 
the workshop. Classes will be 
held in the college's modern elec- 
tronics laboratory- Persons at-

African Exhibition 
Opens at Library 

An educational exhibition of 
photographs and art entitled 
"Tropical Africa: An Explosion 
into the Future."" opened Satur- 
day, June 22. at the Savannah 
State College Library. It will 
continue through July 12, 

The Phelps-Stokes Fund is the 
sponsor of this exhibition, which 
is based on a seven-year survey. 
The show is being circulated 
under the auspices of the Smitli- 
sonian Institution Traveling Ex- 
hibition Service. 

The survey resulted in a two- 
volume book, "Tropical Africa," 
by George H. T. Kimble, who re- 
signed as director of the Ameri- 
can Geographical Society to un- 
dertake the study. Kimble is now 
chairman of the Department of 
Geography at Indiana Univer- 
sity. He drew upon contributions 
from 46 specialists and scholars 
and himself visited Africa many 
times during the course of the 

The exhibition makes the 
viewer aware of the 600 different 
groups of people living in Africa, 
the diversity of the land and 
the richness of natural resources, 
as well as the economic, political, 
and social revolution taking 
place in Africa today. Westerners 
can no longer afford to ignore 
these changes since Africa now 
occupies a pivotal role in the 
future of the world. As Mr. 
Kimble his written: "Self-inter- 
est — to invoke no higher motive 
— demands that we take cogniz- 
ance of these facts. It also de- 
mands that we try to see the 
significance of what is happen- 
ing to the land and its people, 
to their welfare and develop- 

Tropical Africa is a mosaic of 
tribes and tongues, of cultures, 
societies ajad nations. Within Its 
borders lives herder and hunter, 
cultivator and fisherman, miner, 
manufacturer and trader, and 
the followers of every other art 
and calling. While most of these 
people still belong to an antique 
world, almost all of them now 
know there is another word and, 
from time to time, make excur- 
sions into it. 

The political map may show 40 
or so clean-cut pieces, but there 
is nothing all-of-a-piece about 
the lives lived by the people in 
any one of them. 

AU total the territories of 
tropical Africa have a popula- 
tion probably not less than 167

Wells Addresses 
Siunmer Session 

By L. D, Law, Jr. 

At the second Assembly pro- 
gram of the Summer session. 
June 21, Dr. I. J. K. Wells, Execu- 
tive Secretary for the Friends of 
Africa and America, conducted 
an unusually interesting pro- 
gram, "Excursion into Africa." 

In his opening statement, Mr. 
Wells noted that the~e were 
three revolutions taking place 
in the world presently. They 
were outlined as follows: Asia, 
Africa, and America. 

The present demonstrations in 
America by Negroes have been 
referred to by some writers as 
the Fourth American Revolution. 
The demonstrations now being 
conducted by Negroes in America 
are full of religion, music, 
philosophy, and discipline, he 

Following a few introductory 
remarks Dr. Wells, assisted by 
Mr. Robert Mobley of the SSC 
Audio Visual Aids Department, 
showed a series of slides on 
Africa, The pictures ranged from 
those of Jomo Kenyata — to the 
Silent Ancient Pyramids of 

After the slides had been 
viewed. Dr. Wells discussed a 
list of 25 test questions every 
Negro should know about Africa. 
This test covered the areas of 
history, culture, economics, and 
some general information. It was 
obvious from the enthusiasm of 
the students that Dr. Wells had 
truly captivated his audience.

Rep. Visits SSC 

By Lewis Bacon 

Dr. Guenter Schwarz, Pro- 
fessor of Physics at Florida State 
University and a representative 
of the National Science Founda- 
tion, visited the Chemistry De- 
partment of Savannah State 
College June 24 to evaluate the 
Undergraduate Research Pro- 

The research program is di- 
rected by Dr, Charles Pratt, Head 
of the Department, assisted by 
two senior students, Leander 
Merritt and Carnell West. The 
aim of the program is to estab- 
lish the Amino Acid sequence of 
protein found in cottonseed. The 
approach taken is by a deriva- 
tive of the protein by reacting 
the terminal amino acid, which 
is then identified. Repetitions of 
this procedure should lead to 
the complete identification of 
the protein, 

Dr, Schawrz found the re- 
search project very Interesting, 
and spent some tour hours ques- 
tioning Meritt and West about 
some of Its details. Dr. Schwarz 
felt that the rcsearcli project Is 
well on its way and was very 
optimistic about Its future de-

Fashion Flares 

By Emma J. Freer 

Fashions this summer have a 
carefree air in and out of the 

Your fashion writer for this 
feature found it nice and inter- 
esting to be back on home 
grounds again After being on 
campus for three weeks. I am 
ready to report ■'campus" and 
"national" fashion lines. 

Ladies and gents, you should 
favor the lines that favor you. 
Styles are fun and they are fine 
for some people, but not always 
for you. 

The relaxed look is present in 
both lines. Prints and solids are 
featured in everything under 
the sun. 

The comfortable, casual shift- 
like silhouette is the highlight 
of summer fashion; however, I 
understand the gents are not 
happy to have us In "sacks" 

Look around you and see if the 
latest style is for you. The 
popular versions for females are: 
printed and solid shifts, the 
shirred shift i belted or un- 
belted), two-piece dresses and 
suits, coat jumpers and last, but 
not least, the basic silhouette. 

The male lines are a far cry 
from the ones in dad's days. 
Lightweight is the key word as 
well as a variety of colors and 
textures. This may sound 
strange, but his lines are more 
slim and silhouette than the 
females. Brown, olive green, and 
blue are still popular colors. 

Girls, we haven't said anything 
about accessories, which is a 
must in every wardrobe. One or 
two strand pearls iwith match- 
ing earrings), are a necessity: 
otherwise, let your outfit dictate 
what jew^ery you should wear. 
Do not make the mistake of 
wearing too much jewelry.

Library Students 
Present Drama 

By Vivian L. Pressley 

The Library Science Class 301, 
School Administration and 
Organization presented an 
assembly program June 27. in 
Meldrim auditorium. The theme 
of the program was "Images of 
School Libraries." The purpose 
of this program was to acquaint 
school administrators, in-service 
teachers, and students with the 
services of school libraries. This 
was done by contrasting past 
libraries with libraries of today 
in a short skit consisting of two

"New Math" - Modern 
Math Introduced By SSC 

By Emma J. Freer 

This summer for the first time 
students and in-service teachers 
were given the opportunity to 
take a look at the "new math." 
The course outline lists it as 
Mathematics 400. The class is 
being taught by Mr. J. B. Clem- 
mons, Chairman of the. Mathe- 
matics Department. 

Modern Mathematics is not a 
required course for Mathematics 
majors; however, many of them 
along with many teachers have 
seen a need for taking this 

Many of you may ask, What 
is the "new math"? Why the 
need for it? There are as many 
answers as questions that could 
be stated. However, in the world 
today it Is almost impossible to 
get along with the knowledge 
of mathematics as it was taught 
a few years ago. In fact, as it 
was taught just yesterday. 

Why? The new and changing 
world of science and technology 
has made it so. In an effort to 
keep up with other nations in 
the world a new approach to 
arithmetic was necessary. Thus, 
the new approach to mathme- 
matics was viewed. A modern 
arithmetic program introduces 
materials earlier than was 
previously thought possible or 
advisable in our schools. 

Some of the leaders in this 
experimental program includes, 
the School Mathematics Study 
Group (S.M.S.G.). the Syracuse 
University "Madison Project." 
the University of Illiuois Com- 
mittee on School Mathematics, 
t h e University of Maryland 
Mathematics Project, the 
Greater Cleveland Mathematics 

Georgia thought the plan wise 
and acceptable and last year 
issued a guide entitled "Teach- 
ing Mathematics in Georgia 

The Members of the "Mathe- 
matics 400" class found the 
above, very important reasons 
to take a look at "Modem 
Mathematics, Areas covered in- 
cludes. Introduction to Sets, Sen- 
tences and Solution Sets, Work- 
ing With Real Numbers, Graph-

There are some who seem to 
feel that "Modern Mathematics" 
isn't really "new" at all— that 
the vocabulary and symbols are 
what is "new" about it and the 
early introduction of mathe- 
matical terms. 

The modern approach to 
mathematics at this writing has 
not been accepted by some 'in- 
cluding states) and probably 
some never will see its need. 
These are the people who will be 
caught in the changing of time, 
inability to put the old into a 
"new" setting.

SEERSUCKER COMES ON STRONG .-.snin ihis year it's ths 

Casey Stengel of sportswear fabrics — a hardy perennial whose cool, 
clean-cut look guarantees that you'll look the same. The news in the 
current vintage is the widening of the stripes. Look for seersuckers 
•with bold new striping ranging from just under half-an-inch to 
anywhere in the medium range — it's a sure sign of '63. Slacks and 
jackets, shirts and walk-shorts — all will turn up in the traditional 
seersucker pin-striped pattern as lyeH, in blues, greys And browns 
■with white. 


SWITCH in seersucker this season. Avail- 
able in blends of cotton and polyester 
iibers, these new glen-plaid seersucker 
shirts and jackets are most striking in 
black-and-white or brown-and-white com- 
binations. They mix well with solid-color 
slacks and knit shirts. Let your conscience 
— and your budget^be your guide I 

THE "LOOK OF LINEN" moves to ths 

fore in fabrics, to let you take the rough 
"with the smooth in your sportswear. 
"Whether it's pure linen made of flax fibers, 
or the practical blend of polyesters "with 
flax, this textured set of threads can't be 
topped! Natural tan is the most popular 
color, -with light blues and olive in place 
and show position. You'll find these tex- 
tured fabrics in crisply tailored jackets, 
slacks, sport shirts and "walk-shorts. In- 
trepid spirits on the fashion front will like 
ihe new ]inen-look jacket of bold, blazer 
stripes to jazz up an otherwise conserva- 
tive wardrube. 


• — East Indian, that is — on Spring and 
Summer sportswear again this year. This 
brilliant plaid is doing business at the 
same old stand, adding a colorful note to 
jackets, shirts and walk-shorts. The stop- 
press news in Madras is that it now comes 
in bigger, bolder plaids and lighter back- 
grounds to make a new fashion point. 

GOOD GUYS AND BAD GUYS both ulll go for the neWWeslem- 
style" sportswear— e\'en if the only thing waiting in the corral l3 
a convertible. The steady eye can pick this trend out of the crowd, 
%vith its yoke-front and contrasting border stitching. Made of 
denim and denim-type fabrics, these sport shirts and slacka aid 
styled with the lean, narrow, action look. 

FASHION UNDERFOOT emphasizes the 
casual, comfortable look of the slip-on, 
with the moccasin leading in popularity. 
The canvas-topped deck shoe with rubber 
sole is no longer a purely practical shoe 
for sports. You can get them now in slip- 
ons as well as laced models. And there's 
a new color in the cards — besides the 
standard white and navy blue, this year's 
models come in a natural hemp color with 
a rough weave — the "Linen Look" men- 
tioned earlier.

World College Organized With 24 
UN Countries^ Sponsored By Qnakers 

An experimental world college, organized in cooperation with 
twenty-four member countries of the United Nations, will be in 
session this summer, from July ' 1 to August 12. at Harrow Hill. 
near Glen Head, Long Island, The experiment has been planned 
and will be directed by Dr. Harold Taylor, former president of 
Sarah Lawrence College, and is sponsored by the Friends World 
College Committee, a group of Quakers in the New York and Long 
Island area. 

The aim of the project is to 
try out in practice the idea of a 
world college, with a completely 
international faculty, student- 
body and curriculum. Tutorial 
and seminar methods of instruc- 
tion will be used, concentrating 
on study projects by the students 
who will work singly or in groups 
of two or three on issues and 
ideas related to the development 
of world order, new Institutions 
of world culture and new bodies 
of knowledge which are free 
from national bias. 

The governments invited to 
cooperate in the estabHshment 
of the project were selected by 
Dr. Talyor. in consultation with 
various members of the United 
Nations delegations, to represent 
the aligned, non-aligned and 
neutral countries, 

Asia is represented by Japan, 
Malaya. Indonesia and India; 
Africa by Ghana, Uganda. Sierra 
Leone. Ethiopia and Nigeria; 
Europe by Great Britain, France. 
Poland and Roumania; the 
Middle East by the United Arab 
Republic and Israel; the west- 
ern hemisphere by Mexico, Co- 
lombia, Paraguay. Brazil, Canada 
and the United States. Negotia- 
tions are still underway for in- 
cluding the Netherlands, Cuba. 
Thailand and the U.S.S.R. 

Each of the countries will be 
represented by one student, 
either appointed by the nation 
itself or selected by the World 
College in consultation with of- 
ficials of the participating gov- 
ernments. The students range in 
age from twenty to twenty-six; 
both men and women, graduates 
and undergraduates are in- 
cluded. They will be supported 
by scholarship grants either 
from their own governments or 
by grants-in-aid from the 
Friends World College Commit- 
tee. Most of the students expect 
eventually to enter one or 
another field of service in inter- 
national affairs- 

Four faculty members will be 
in residence, one each from 
Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and 
the West, Others, who will visit 
the campus for particular 
seminars and tutorial sessions, 
will include members of United 
Nations delegations, who have 
taught in the universities of 
their own countries, and visit- 
ing scholars now in the metro- 
politan area. 

The subjects in the curriculum 
will range from the development 
of ideas for new forms of inter- 
national cooperation in educa- 
tional and scientific programs to 
studies of disarmament, the 
peaceful uses of outer space and 
the art forms of the countries 
represented at the college. Al- 
though there will be no subject 
matter divisions or separate de- 
partments, the studies and 
curriculum will concentrate on 
building a new body of knowl- 
edge in the social sciences, the 
arts and the humanities, which 
represents a world point-of-view. 
For example, a project may de- 
velop for the preparation of 
text-books for Soviet, Asian, 
African and American children 
in the history of the United 
States and the Soviet Union, 

Students will present to 
seminars and discussion groups 
the elements of their national 
culture and art forms with 
which they are most familiar 
The music, theater and dance 
of member countries will be per- 
formed where possible, with the 
aid of the students and of 
musicians, actors and dancers 
in the metropolitan area. There 
will also be play readings and 

poetry readings of translations 
from the classics of national 
literatures. The College will use 
the recreational and cultural 
resources of metropolitan New 
York, including the libraries, 
galleries, theaters, and concert 

Funds for the World College 
experiment are being provided 
through private donations to the 
Friends World College Commit- 
tee, whose chairman is Dr. 
George Nicklln. of Westbury. 
Long Island, The Committee. 
composed of members of the 
New York Yearly Meeting of the 
Religious Society of Friends, has 
been working for the past four 
years on plans for founding a 
new institution of higher educa- 
tion with a world point-of-view. 
The Committee's headquarters 
at Harrow Hill are the former 
home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry 
Ittleson. Jr,. who donated their 
ten-acre estate two years ago to 
serve as a center for the work in 
world education 

Dr Harold Taylor, who is 
presently engaged in a study of 
the concept and feasibility of a 
world university, under the 
sponsorship of the Peace Re- 
search Institute, of which he is 
vice president, was invited dur- 
ing the past year by the Friends 
World College Committee to con- 
duct an experimental project at 
Harrow Hill. The present project 
is the outcome of that invitation. 

It is hoped that in the future 
some form of international 
financing through inter-govern- 
mental cooperation can be ar- 
ranged for year-round world 
college programs both in this 
country and abroad. In the 
meantime, the results of this 
summer project will be made 
available in published form to 
interested individuals and insti- 
tutions, as wel as to UNESCO 
and other international bodies. 

Dr. Taylor has expressed the 
hope that one result of this be- 
ginning experiment may be the 
development of a design for 
world education which might 
serve as a basis for further 
projects of this kind during the 
United Nations International 
Cooperation Year in 1965, 

Members of the SSC com- 
munity will remember Dr. 
Taylor's brilliant lecture during 
National Library Week in April.

In-Service Teachers 

Put the Accent on 

Better Teaching 

The educational workshops In 
methods and materials of ele- 
mentary and secondary teach- 
ing accented "Better Teaching" 
at its first reporting session on 
June 27 and 28. 

Through a variation of panel 
discussions, skits, socio-dramas. 
and other means of demonstra- 
tion, in-service teachers ex- 
hibited resource findings of com- 
mon interest to all participants. 
The areas of concern grew out 
of a list of problems drawn up 
in a general session of the two 
workshops during the beginning 

A report from Group I dealt 
with a discussion of non-graded 
primaries, Individual differences, 
and grouping 

A second group dealing with 
"Human Relations" placed 
emphasis on guidance, student- 
teacher relations, and the prob- 
lem of absenteeism. 

"Planning for Motivation" was 
the overall theme for Gi'oup III 
which stressed a number of 
psychological gmdelines which 
are basic to planning at all 
levels. Various methods of teach- 
ing and organizing learning ex- 
periences were brought into 
focus. Emphasis was placed on 
having the psychological guide- 
lines permeate all planning for 
motivation, competent teaching, 
an defficient learning. 

Group IV gave its attention to 
"Some Determining Bases for 
Grading and Promotion," Sig- 
nificant in this report was an 
analysis of the meaning, pur- 
poses, kinds, administration and 
scoring of test. A discussion of 
the use of test findings by this 
group proved helpful to all the 

Certainly, a number of help- 
ful suggestions for better teach- 
ing grew out of the several re-

million and occupy an area well 
over twice the size of the United 

Of the 600 or more groups of 
peoples in tropical Africa who 
do enough things differently 
from their neighbors to be recog- 
nizably different, there are many 
groups with similar modes of 
behavior. Most of these groups 
talk differently from their 
neighbors, sometimes so differ- 
ently that villagers living on 
opposite banks of a river are 
unable to communicate with 
each other. Many of them have 
dlffei-ent ways of raising food 
and family, of settling disputes, 
of dealing with Illnesses and 
emergencies, and even of bury- 
ing the dead. 

Africa is a fabric woven of 
many physical thi-eads. Into It go 
water and soil, heat and aridity, 
marsh and jungle, mantled hill 
and naked valley, beaches 
fringed with palm and coral, 
"sunny fountains" that some- 
times freeze. 

The college library will also 
display books on Africa. The 
public is invited to view the 
exhibition during library hours.

SSC Science Workshop Provides 
Innumerable Experiences For Teachers 

The science workshop, at Sa- 
vannah State College is provid- 
ing opportunities for teachers on 
the elementary level to increase 
their knowledge in the various 
branches of the natural sciences, 
and also ample opportunities to 
understand better the PROBLEM 
SOLVING approach to the teach- 
ing of science. Each teacher is 
required to present a problem for 
investigation in the specific area 
of science in which she Is seek- 
ing more Information. After this, 
she Is assisted in using literature 
on this problem with the ex- 
pectation that she will develop 
a hypothesis of her own, rela- 
tive to the answer which she 
expects to find through experi- 
mental work. 

The teacher is then guided in 
her thinking on what methods 
to use In search for the answer 
to her problem, and what ma- 
terials would be needed In mak- 
ing this study. After this has 
been decided, the teacher is now 
ready for experimental work. 
which might result in producing 
the answer to her problem, and 
it will provide the opportunity 
for the teacher to arrive at a 
conclusion based on her own ex- 
perimental work. 

Special study in all the areas 
listed under "Suggested Princi- 
ples for Science Curriculum 
(Grades 1-8)" publlslied in 
Science for Georgia Schools, is 
required of all participants in 
the workshop. 

The workshop began with 
special lectures by W. J. Tucker, 
Ph.D.. in Chemistry at Savannah 
State College, on Chemistry and 
its related areas. The objectives 
of these lectures were: ill To 
give elementary teachers some 
formal training in Chemistry. 
(2) To help fill out a void in 
the teacher's background in 
subject matter, (3) To increase 
the teacher's capacity to moti- 
vate students into science 

The lectures are divided into 
four main units; The Periodic 
System and Atomic Structure; 
Common compounds and re- 
actions used daily at home. 
school and work; Introduction 
to Nuclear Chemistry and Intro- 
duction to Organic Chemistry. 
The periodic chart is used with 
all of the lectures in order to 
instill in the elementary teacher 
the concept of periodicity of ele- 
ments and compounds in a given 
group or series. Some of the 
teachers are expected to make 
periodic charts of all the co:n- 
mon elements as a workshop 
project that can be used as an 
aid in their respective science 

In the unit on nuclear chem- 
istry, the theory of natural and 
artificial radioactivity is briefly 
discussed and a few equations 
are used for illustrative purposes. 
The production and acceleration 
of high energy particles is also 
included in this unit. 

In the unit on organic chem- 
istry, no details will be given on 
special classes of compounds. 
Only common organic com- 
pounds will be treated as cer- 
tain alcohols, flavorings, acids, 
and some carbohydrates. 

After getting a working knowl- 
edge of the atom, its structure, 
and its contributions to our 
everyday living, the area on 
electricity and magnetism at- 
tracted a majority of the teach- 
ers. The questions in this area 
that seem to be uppermost in 
the minds of the teachers are; 
How does electricity give us 
heat? produce light? work for 
us? These questions served as 
bases for experimental work, and 
several simple experiments have 
been performed to bring out 
these principles. 

In the area covering the Uni- 
verse and the Solar System, the 
participants have been provided 
an opportunity to study space 

science. Some teachers are pre- 
paring models of the entire solar 
system. These models are made 
with plywood cut in a round 
figure about eighteen Inches In 

The large sun Is represented 
with a large electric light bulb in 
the center of the figure. The 
other planets are placed in the 
figure In their positions relative 
to the sun with smaller light 
bulbs. All bulbs are wired for 
AC electricity, which will light 
up the entire figure and will 
show what is meant by space, 
or outer space. The different 
seasons are demonstrated with a 
similar type of figure. 

The area on Living Matter is 
always Interesting on all levels. 
The teachers in the workshop 
have heard many interesting dis- 
cussions on life in both plants 
and animals How life Is main- 
tained in the bodies of both 
plants and animals has been the 
chief topic for discussions. These 
discussions have provided oppor- 
tunities to study many differ- 
ent principles of the biological 

Aquariums and terrariums 
have been made to demonstrate 
certain principles of association 
that exist between the plant 
kingdom and the animal king- 
dom. These teaching aids are 
made with some plain window 
glass made In a box form and 
cemented with strong construc- 
tion tape. They are very Inex- 

Health and safety cannot be 
over-emphasized. The teachers 
are making special posters on 
nutrition, exercise, cleanliness, 
and correct posture as they re- 
late to good health. 

Some of the causative agents 
of diseases are being discussed, 
and some experimental work 
with bacteria is being done to 
show the teachers that these 
same experiments could be used 
In the elementary schools. 

Everyone appears to be most 
interested in the work, and will 
be better prepared to teach the 
sciences to pupils on the ele- 
mentary level beginning next 
school term,

Additional Peace 
Corps Volunteers 

Requests from 47 nations for 
additional Peace Corps Volun- 
teers late this year have 
prompted the addition of a July 
20 date for national administra- 
tion of the Peace Corps Place- 
ment Test. 

Dr. Ed Henry, director of the 
Peace Corps selection division. 
said the non-competitive test 
will be given by the Civil Service 
Commission in more than 800 
communities on Saturday, July 
20, and again on August 24. Both 
start at 8:30 a.m. 

"In order to meet even the 
most urgent requests from Latin 
America. Africa and Asia, we 
plan to start training programs 
each month from August

More than 2.000 prospective

quirement for admission is that

mitted a Peace Corps Question-

To be of no church is danger- 

Religion, of which the rewards 
are distant, and which is ani- 
mated only by Faith and Hope, 
will glide by degrees out of the 
mind, unless it be invigorated 
and reimpressed by eternal 
ordinances, by stated calls to 
worship, and the salutory in- 
fluence of example. 

Those who obey their con- 
science are of my religion, and 
I am of the religion of all those 
who are brave and good 

We have just enough religion 
to make us hate, but not enough 
to make us love, one another. 

We cannot make a religion for 
others, and we ought not to let 
others make a religion for us. 

Our own religion is what life 
has taught us.
