Tlic organization ol the chapter is 
due largely to llie foresit^ht, intcrcwl, 
and energetic efforts of Dr. E. K. Wil- 
liams, who explains Alpha Kappa Mu 
is interested in developing scholarsliip 
and is open lo all Savannah Slali* 
students who maintain the required 
average. Praise is also due Mr. Ben 
Ingergoll and his efficient staff who 
checked the scholastic c|ualifications of 
each candidate. 

So the rains of sound scholarship and 
worthy deeds still pour at SSC. The 
noble circle of scholars, drawn close 
by their love of the true and the heau- 
liful, will always, we trust, remain

Alpha Kappa Mu Chapter Organized 

National Honor Society Set Up 

"When it rains, it pours," or "IJirds of a featlier flock together" are pro- 
verbs which may be aptly applied to this story. 

Fast on the heels of the announcement that Savannah State College had 
been listed as approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools came the establishment of the first national honor sdcicly on the 
campus. The Alpha Nu chapter of the Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society was 
set up on March 13. 1952. 

Candidates for Alpha Kappa Mu 
were presented in assembly on March 
13, in Mcldrim Auditorium. Mr. Eman- 
uel A. Berlrand. business manager and 
gradiiati; member of Alpha Kappa Mu, 
gave the history and purpose of this 
organization. He cited as one of llic 
aims the promotion of high scholar- 
ship among college students. He also 
repealed the working motto of Alpha 
Kappa Mu: "Work as though you were 
going to live forever; live as though 
you were going to die tonight." 

Dr. William K. Payne, who is also 
a graduate member of Alpha Kappa 
Mu. introduced the speaker for the 
occasion. Mr, T. E. McKinney. dean 
of Johnson C. Smith University and 
director of Region 1 of AKM, was 
guest speaker. Dean McKinney gave 
the interesting story of the develop- 
ment of honor societies on Negro col- 
lege campuses and the effect of these

the division of arts and sciences and 
advisor to Alpha Nu, presented the 
candidates for Alpha Kappa Mu. The 
program concluded with the singing 
of the alma mater. 

The nineteen candidates initiated in-

The fast-stepping, thirty-five piece 
SSC Marching Band helped to make 
the 1951 gridiron season interesting, 
fascinating, and successful. Grid fans 
witnessed the latest in band maneuvers, 
formations, and styles. The Marching 
Band often "stole the show" with such 
performances as "Yankee Doodle."

Durinf^ llie |ia^4l llirer inontlis. we have lieen enjoying, along with 
II nuiuher of other SSd sludeiitw, wlml wc hclicvc to be "A Golden 
O|)|)orluiiily." We Iwivi! Iieeii sharing whal is known ns llie Student 
Tcneher experience. Tlie praclite of ullowiiig prospective teachers 
ncl as cach^la iti a rail clnssrimm silimlion for a reasonable lengtli of 
lime IH prohalily one of ihe most stimulating innovations in the 
tcHeher-lrnining i)ro{;ram. 

Wii curlaitdy don't feel so keenly the value or iinporlanoe of this 
experience al first. We began with some inisgivings and anxiety, 
an<l viewed this as armlher bulhersome requirement suhse<[ueiit lo 

Wlml elmnged our opinion':' While talking lo a few experienced 
teaclu^rs we learned that the story of this activity was quite different 
n few years ago, at least so far as SSC is concerned. The story of 
its blooming devehipnient is another saga in the progressive history 
of our (lollege. 

As told to the writer by an alumnus, one attended college for 
llio customary foin )ears. During one quarter for one class period, 
the cadet teacher sfient the time observing a selected group of pupils, 
Tor only one day of the entire [leriod, each student spent a day in 
coni|)lle charge of the class. There were no seminars, orientation 
periods, or field trips such us we have today. 

Needless lo say, we were shocked at such a revelation and began 
lo evahiHle seriously the program as we know it. Here we found in 
a proee(hiri'! most of u^ taki- f(»r gratited, "A Golden Opporunity." 
Wc have a chance to find our weaknesses before they find us and 
leove us labelled as "incompclenls." We are spared the brutal lesson 
of the "seiiool of hard knocks" and the college of "trial and error." 

The Student-Teacher program is "A Golden Opportunity." in 
which we learn nnich to enrich our educational program. During 
this period, opportunities are presented in a real situation and in a 
natural setting so tliat we may perform duties and exiiibil skills that 
are prerequisites to success as leachers. Every day is filled with 
new and revealing experiences. There is nevr a dull luomnt, for 
our lives are full and creative. So are tlie young minds we serve. 

The critic teachers are interested in our personal growth and 
development as well as in our professional accomplishments. They 
strive, even beyond professional duty, to provide worthwhile experi- 
ences. For this great service the> deserve high commendation. 

The teaching profession is among nian'l greatest services to man 
and it is heartening to know that Savatmah State College, in step with 
leading institutions of higher learning in the nation, is providing a 
teacher-training program which is outstanding. 

Dr. Calvi L. Kiah, chairman of tlie department of education, and 
Miss Donella J. Graham, coordinator of student-teaching oti the 
elementary school level, and their staffs, deserve high praise for their 
efforts in the advance and progress of this important phase of teacher 

If greater opportunitit^ are provided in the area of education and 
teacher-training, we believe Savannah Slate will be among the first 
with the finest,

While lirowsing around in the Library 
one aflernoon, I decided that I would 
gallier some bits of information thai 
might be of interest lo the SSC family. 
As I wandered around, I discovered 
that a new set of tables had been ac- 
quired, giving us more room in which 
to study without disturbing others. 
While examining llie shelves, I came 
aero-is a new collection of novels that 
should provitle interesting reading for 
u>. Two that siruck my eye were Frank 
Yerby's /( {f'oman Called Fancy, and 
Cardinal Spellman's The Foundling. 

Miss Hawkins, College Librarian, has 
moved inio her new office and is ready 
lo lend assistance, as always, to those 
who have difficulty in finding materials. 
Five stu<lenls have been assigned to the 
Library staff. They are: James Camp- 
bell, George Thomas, Alfleta Gaskin, 
Hazel Collier, and Celestine Hamilton. 

A recent survey of the use of the 
Library by students shows that more 
of our students are making increasing 
use of Ihis great educational lool. 

Good Grooming 
Aids Cadet 

By Carolyn M. Manigo 
To be one's best self throughout ihe 
student-leaching experience is an asset 
not lo be even momentarily underesti- 
mated. There i*. of course, no one way 
lo be one's self. Ralher, there are some 
important factors which, when out to- 
gether, give you important clues not 
only lo ihe making of a successful be- 
ginning in ihe early days of your stu- 
dent teaching, but also to your con- 
tinuing success as a teacher. 

The following suggestions concerning 
your responsibility to yourself are of- 
fered to aid you in gelting off lo a 
good start. Your management of time, 
and your personal appearance play im- 
portcinl roles in achieving success in 
student leaching. 

A prospective cadet teacher mighl use 
the following as a checklist for groom- 

s my clothing clean ami well 
pressed ? 

Is my clothing praclical for ilie kinds 
of activities in which 1 must engage 
with ihe pupils? 

I> my clothing attractively harmoni- 
ous in ils color combinations? 

Is my clodijng suitable lo my per- 
sonality— modish, without conspicuous- 
ly allracling allenlion to itself? ^ 
Do I wear comfortable, praclical shoes 
thai are regularly cleaned and polishty) 
and in good repair? 

Are nil my accessories fresh, neat, 
and appropriate to school wear? 

Is my jewelry in such good taste that 
>es not draw undue allention to it- 

We are wishing every student suc- 
ce>s in liis practice leaching. We say, 
"Go into your work with the best 
that you have in the end the best will 
come back lo you."

What Is Our Destiny? 

The questioiK "What is nur destiny:'" has been asked over and 
over again, by people of all groups. Even though many of us never 
think of it, we must face this question in one way or another. 

If we are to survive in this atomic age, there is a role for each 
of us to play in our society. It is our responsibility to utilize our 
capabiUties to their fullest extent. 

No individual thinks seriously at all times, but our present-day 
conditions require serious thought. We must remember today is but 
a prelude lo tomorrow. Therefore, it is better for us to begin now to 
prepare ourselves for the tasks which lie ahead of us. 

The Bible speaks of man's reaping whal he sows. To that, I 
should like lo add that some of us sow infertile seeds, especially when 
we spend our lime doing nothing. Thus, we reap nothing. There are 
too many people in the world who want nothing; they just tag along. 
Could this be true of some of us here at Savannah State? Often 
following discourses given by speakers, we hear remarks concerning 
our purpose at this institution. This leads me to wonder whether it 
is a common tliought that abilities and talents are developed and not 
picked up by osmosis. 

An institution is only as great as its constituents. This needs no 
confirmation other tlian to say that men make institutions and we 
have great potentialities with us. We ourselves must face and recognize 
our de^liin

This is ihe story behind a story of 
progress. The Creative Writing Edi- 
tion of The Tiger^'s Roar, released last 
month, marked more tlian a new high 
in journalistic achievement at SSC. In 
addiiion. tliis literary- effort, in the 
words of its preface, "symbolized and 
crystallized an ideal which the late 
Dean Janie Lester constantly advocated 
— the developmeni of creative expres- 
-iim Hiiiong the students of Savannah 

During the past year, several worth- 
while contributions of a creative na- 
ture reached ihe Student Publication 
Office, bul Ihis kind of material was 
not loo well suileil to newspaper edi- 
tions. Sensing a great need of an out- 
let ihat could encourage and utilize 
the students' creative talents. Miss 
Luetia B. Colvin, advisor to student 
publicalion. began exploring the possi- 
bility of doing a magazine edition ex- 
pressly for creative writing. However, 
this idea remained a dream until the 
advent of such a publicalion last month. 
Sparked by the sincere desire for the 
cuhivalion of creativity in expression 
and thinking here at SSC. and the 
kind encouragement of Dr. W. K. Payne 
and others, the staff produced its first 
Creative Writing Edition. 

Miss Colvin deserves high commen- 
dation for her untiring efforts and un- 
common interest in the fuUfillmenl of 
a need and a dream envisioned by Dean 
Lester, lo whom the edition is dedi- 

It is hoped that the Creaiive Writing 
Edition will become an annual publi- 
cation growing in scope and quality 
as SSC's student body grows in ap- 
preciation for self-expression. It is 
hope<l that it will become "an Inspir- 
it^ tribute to Dean Lester's high ideals 
and splendid example." It is a project 
born of a few minds and realized by 
the concerted efforis of many minds 
and influences. 

We are especially appreciative lo 
those ai<ling ihis endeavor and we are 
sincerely grateful for the kind expres- 
sions of approval lo a step in the stu- 
dent publication's climb to recognition 
as a leading college journal. 

There is nothing like teaching. 
If you like doing good deeds. 
Everyda> you can feel certain 
Thai you have given lo one in need.

Tlie SSC Tigers split a douhlc-head- 
er with the Allen University Yellow 
Jackets, January 18. The Yellow Jackets 
took the first half, with a score of 
43-37. The Tigers took the night-cap, 

The girh' game was "all .\llen" un- 
til the last quarter, when Martha 
Rawls, high-scoring ace for the Tiger- 
etles. went to work dropping buckets 
from the floor. Allen won the scor- 
intr honors, with L. Dinkins tossing in 
13 points. For the losers. Martha 
Rawls dropped in 18, while Neta Sla- 
ley came up with 7. 

State's cagers were paced by Robert 
"Nancy Hanks" Slocum. The game 
was a nip and tuck battle until the 
fourth, when Stale came into her own. 
cracking the Yellow Jacket's zone de- 

Then Slocum broke loose, and scored 
two straight buckets, giving Suie a 
four-point lead. Allen never recovered 
from that blow, as the game moved 
ahead for the Tigers. .\llen came 
within two points of lying the score, 
wheni Lawiencc "Red" Shepard

The committee in Resource Per- 
sons was particularly interested in 
obtaining individuals whose expe- 
riences in fields relevant to the 
surveys would serve ns enriching 

Dr. W. K. Payne, President of 
Savannah Stale College was our 
first consultant. He spoke on Hu- 
man Relations. Some high points 
wore Human Relations is the most 
important factor in the solution of 
problems; it breaks down stcro- 
types; and it is based on the in- 
telligence of human values. It frees 
the best in an individual, and the 
best agency tor spreading good 
human relations is through the 
child in the classroom. 

On June 20 Mr. Theodore Wright 
spoke to us on Physical Educotion 
and health. He stressed health 
and physical education as a part 
of education for the youth. He out- 
lined three factors of physical edu- 
cation: (1) Power to act— which we 
call strength and endurance; (2) 
Skill to act — flexibility, liming, 
balance, and relaxation: and (3) 
Motivation to act— goal or purpose. 
The Public Relations Depart- 
ment was well represented by Mr. 
W. H. M. Bowens on June 27. He 
■tatcd that Public Relations is a 
way of life and that a public re- 
lations program should include the 
school and all phases of the com- 
munity. It is an art of dealing 
with the public. The tools of pub- 
lic relations are Publicity— news- 

papers, radio and television, school 
paper, faculty staff, alumni and 

After the discussion we had a 
broader view of human relations. 
All committees played an impor- 
tant role in making the workshop 

Scott Named Editor

Savannah State College's Public 
Relations Chief, Wilton C. Scott, 
has been accorded the honor of 
editing the University's summer 
bulletin for the Associated Work- 
shop in Educational Leadership. 
According to a release following 
the election, as editor-in-chief of 
this publication, Mr. Scott will 
have an honor rarely accorded a 
Negro from the deep South. 

The Associated Workshops in 
Educational Leadership is com- 
posed of about 350 school adminis- 
trators, principals and teachers 
from all over this country and also 
the West Indies. From this number 
two teachers from Chatham 
County, Mrs. Sadie B. Stringer and 
Mrs. Virginia D. Nelson serve on 
the staff as typists. They are in 
a different division of the workshop 
than Mr. Scott, his main interest

' Receives Tremendous 


In a splendid concert, Todd Dun- 
can, internationally famous bari- 
tone. ;ang to a large, appreciative 
audience in Meldrim Hall Audito- 
rium, Monday evening, June .30, 
i;>52. at 8:30 p. m. 

The brilliant artist magnificently 
displayed the talents of a truly 
great performer in the areas of 
lone quality, richness, interpreta- 
tion and coordination, tjualities that 
could only be manifest by a true 
artist. All of this despite singing 
under the pressure of 90 degree 

Opening the concert with Han- 
oi's "Hear Me, Ye Winds and 
Waves" from "Scipio." Mr. Dun- 
'ent through the widely varied 
program with ease. He displayed 
his unusual interpretative ability in 
the. masterful renditions of Schu- 
bert's "Dr. Erlkonig" and "The 
Seminarist" by Moussorgsky. 

During the second half of the 
program, Mr. Duncan's magnifi- 
cent handling of Massenet's "Vis- 
ion Fugitive" from "Herodiade" 
and Saint-Saens "Danse Macabre" 
received appreciative applause 
from the audience. The richness 
of his voice and excellent expres- 
sons gave full nieanng to the group 
of Negro spirituals, Haitian and 
Creole folk songs which he sang. 
Mr. Duncan delighted the audience 
ith his superb interpretation of 
Gershwin's "I Got Plenty of Nut- 
tin,' from "Porgy and Bess." the 
Broadway smash-hit in which he 
starred. He sang as an encore the 
very amusing "Song of the Flea" 
by Moussorgsky. 

Problems Class 

Mrs. Brown; "I wonder If you 
would be so kind as to weigh this 
package for me?" 

Butcher: "Why certainly, it 
weighs exactly three and a half 
pounds, Ma'am." 

Mrs. Brown: "Thank you. It 
contains the bones you sent me in 
that four-pound roast yesterday." 

"I got 35 In arithmetic and 40 in 
spelling but I sure knocked 'em cold 
in geography," 

"What did" you get?" 



What are Social problems? "So- 
cial problems are those abnormal 
conditions appearing in group life 
which are considered dangerous 
and intolerable." 

During the first session of sum- 
mer school, the class in Modern 
Social Problems 451 was one of the 
most interesting classes on the 
campus. Its objective was to deal 
with social problems in a unique 

Members of this class were rep- 
resentatives of different sections 
of Georgia, thereby bringing varied 
problems for classroom study. 

Lectures, library study, discus- 
sions, group study and movies gave 
informative appeal. This in itself 
substantiates the statement made 
by the instructor, Dean W. J. Hol- 
loway that, "We must do sound 
thinking about the problems that 
exist today," 

Being aware of this fact and the 
fact that vast changes in the social 
world create many perplexing 
problems, the class was organized 
into groups to study some timely 
problems. These were as follows: 
Group I 
Political Corruption — Mrs. 
Mamye Pickett, Chairman, Ameri- 
cus, Georgia; Mrs. Evelyn Wright, 
Athens, Georgia; Mrs. Lula E. 
Walker, Douglas, Georgia; Mrs. 
Hattie Anderson, Riceboro, Geor- 
gia; and Mrs. Veronica S. Wash- 
ington, Savannah, Georgia,

Day, Chairman, Atlanta, Georgia; 
Mrs. Mable J. Garbett, Savannah, 
Georgia: Mrs. Ophelia Futch, 
Hinesville, Georgia; Miss Areola 
Harris, Savannah, Georgia; and 
Mrs. Virgie L. Holland, Savannah, 

Group III

den. Chairman, Savannah, Georgia; 
Mr. Wayne Hawes, Lincolnton, 
Georgia; Mrs. Martha Edwards, 
Daricn, Georgia; Mrs. Lurene B. 
Dowdy, Hull, Georgia; and Miss 
Elizabeth Lee, Augusta, Georgia.

Ethel Shipman, Tifton, Georgia; 
Miss Annie R. Roebuck, Athens,

Study of Art 
Brings Appreciation 

Reveals Historical Facts 


In addition to visualization and 
skill in self expression, a study of 
art and other people and other 
times is important In the growth of 
iipjirecintion. Practically all works 
of art ore historieol and therefore 
I'orm a rich source of infovnuition 
i>f the country and the period in 
which they were produced. The 
art of a people is an interpreta- 
tion of its interests — religious, ao- 
ial, economic, and political. Since 
artists are usually sensitive men, 
their works tell of the events and 
the people that interest them. 

Frequently events of post iiges 
are more fascinating than those 
nf llic present day, and the biog- 
raphies of the men who produced 
the great nuisterpioces may ho as 
obsorliing os fiction. When the 
aims that motivate the artist, the 
trials ani! ditficultie.'* that beset 
his honest efforts, or the nior< 
pleasant success and honorn tiial )v 
enjoys are known, his works arc 
more deeply appreciated. In tin- 
ex|terience "f others, there i« a 
wealth or material that enn be hc- 
lected to develop one wo that he 
may become more cultured and In 
formed, and thereby better able In 
understand and evaluate the wurkn 
of other people and other ages. 

Enjoyment and appreciation fol- 
low proper and artistic select ton 
anri arrangement of works of art 
in some form or other. And if 
properly studicid, we will learn to 
appreciate not only the master- 
pieces of the nrtlat, the handiwork 
of mon, but more especially the 
marvelous power of the artist when 
all powers are combined with the 
ability to demonstrate the funda- 
mentol principles of art— Its chief 
facets, the nature of form, anrl the 
elements of form — for it 1h then 
the artist accomplishes his part 
to develop true art which will 
strengthen our appreciation and 
become a source of inspiration for 
us to respect, to share and to ap- 
preciate the productions of our fel- 
lowmen, whether these produclionji 
are those of the work of artliitH of 
today or the works of the maHLer.t 
of all agen. 

Arts and Crafts

The first summer session Arts 
and Crafts Workshop was very ac- 
tive this summer. It was composed 
of forty-nine in-service and pros- 
pective teacliers and was under the 
direction of Mrs. Rosemary Curley 

The group did scribble designs, 
spatter painting, finger painting, 
tempera painting, popier nmche 
aninmls, soap carving, weaving, 
blue-printing and block printing. 
Many individuals worked on special 
projects and were quite succi^sful.

ful in taking the class, as a wjiolo, 
back to its childhood days, Dy

that till' numy experiences tlmt we 
shared in tlie workshop this sum-

pupils In the next school year.

1. No. They are puffing and 
smoking just like men. Let them 
itand. E.C.B, 

2. If the bus goes to a govern- 
ment plant, the first person that 
comes should get the .>)eat. Too 
many women depend on chivalry 
ami It is (lead. If an elderly woman 
gets on, it might be all right. How- 
ever, if he does not want to give 
up hi.H scat^ he should hold it. An 
old lady should have the prefer- 
ence. L.W. 

3. Women have lost their femin- 
ity. Let them stand If they are not 
too elderly. M.L.M. 

4. Men should let their consci- 
ence ho their guide, A.R.M.M. 

6. Definitely I do. Though the 
age of chivalry has passed, men 
could show more courtesy. L.L.F. 

fi. It depends on the age. If it is 
an elderly person they should get 
up. If it is a younger person, they 
should not get up. Times are 
changing. S.K. 

7. Whether a man is to stand and 
let a lady sit should depend on age. 
If the man is older, let him have 
the seat. However, if he is young- 
er, I should expect him to get up. 
When I say old, I mean past 70. 

8. When an old man gets on the 
bus, a young Indy should give him 
her scat and if an old lady gets on 
the bus, a young man should give 
her the seat. A young lady got on 
the bus and a man gave her a seat 
and she fainted. When she revived, 
she thanked the man and he faint-

9. The age of chivalry is past. 
Women are seeking equol rights in 
some areas, so why shouldn't they 
have them in all areas. If a woman 
has a baby in her arms, a man 
should get up and let her sit down; 
if she has packages in her arms, 
ho should offer to hold 'the pack- 
ages. Likewise, if a man has a 
baby in his arms, the woman 
should offer him a seat. Times 
have changed; women are outstrip- 
ping men in many areas and ham- 
nerlnp to get into others, so why 
ihouidn't equal opportunity mean 

equal responsibility and equal re- 
spect and deference. This is the 
age of the equality of men and 
women. M.B,

What Savannah State If s Wise To Be Smart 
Stands For b? mrs. gertrude d. thomas 

Luck, 'easy 'money, and a good 
time were the notes to which the 
younger generation of the "For- 
ties" danced. Why work hard to be 
a good student when everyone 
knows that the world's prizes goes 
to the popular person^, the good 
mixer, the boy with natural talents 
for athletics, the girl with the be- 
witching smile and clever line? 

Why work when all the world 
was a bed of roses and jobs fairly 
aching to be taken? 

Nowadays, boys and girls seem 
to take life with a reasonable and 
questionable outlook, though none 
of the facilities for having a good 
time have been buried. The young 
man of 1952 is realizing for the 
first time, perhaps, that the job of 
today is not obtained through 
worthless folly nor family pull. 
And the young lady of this day is 
aware of the fact that her job is 
not given to the "Dumb Dora" or 
the "Simple Sue" and that the 
wholehearted girl with the brains 
the one who makes the grade. 
Today, education is a necessity to 
travel through the lanes of life; to 
understand one's neighbor, what he 
thinks, what he feels and what he 
does; to understand one's self! 

The year 1952 finds it common 
sense to make good on the chance 
to learn.

to Interest 

The G6 members of the workshop 
are divided into groups according 
to interest or problems. Groups 
organized are: Language Arts, 
Arithmetic, Physical Education 
and Health, Social Studies, and 
Science. Officers were also elected 
for each of these groups. 

The members of the group spon- 
sored a chapel program during the 
regular weekly chapel hour, 
Wednesday, July 23. The program 
;onsisted of a classroom demon- 
sti-ation on teaching mathematics 
in & practical manner. 


Lady (holding cookie over her 

dog): Speak! Speak! 
Dog; What shall I say? 


Dear Diary: 

Soon I shall hear footsteps, I 
shall never hear again, footsteps 
belonging to students who have 
worn thin my halls, marred my 
buildings with, "Say what? Don't 
leave me. Take me with you when 
you go. I'll be so lonesome when 
you're gone." And "Whoa— back 
up and try it a-a-a-a-gain," and 
the history of their love affairs. 
For years these students have been 
warmed by my heat, fed, in my 
dining hall, and housed in my dor- 
mitories. They have annoyed my 
instructors and wasted paper and 
time foolishly. But now they are 
joining a great mass of men and 
women who have made the world 
what it is today. 

Although you may think this is 
a joyous occasion for me it is not. 
Tears are blinding my eyes as I 
hear the last student take a last 
look inside me and run to join his 
classmates. His steps become more 
faint and now they are fading 
away. My mind is blotted by mem- 
ories of the oustanding students 
who add another trophy to my pos- 
sessions. Bringing fame and glory 
to me and to them, they have added 
another extra glow of pride to my 
eyes. Many students will carry the 
spirit of Savannali State wherever 
they go; they will help to carry 
fin the glory, democracy, and lead- 
ership in a democratic school. 

Yes. I have a right to be proud 
and a right to be sad. I glance 
around in my empty halls, in the 
classrooms, in the auditorium and 
I am reminded of future stars. The 
shops, the art and music rooms, the 
lab, the library, and the gym, bring 
a touch of pride to me and a tear 
to my eye. I am too blinded with 
tears to write, so I remain. 

Savannah State, 
'til my sidewaUcs start walking. 

Give Us A Thought 


The Class of 1952 leaves behind 
past full of memories of a place 
we will never forget. It is hard to 
realize we have to leave dear old 
Savannah State, for so much of 
our lives have been spent here 
learning, laughing, and Joving. 

Now we are leaving but its only 
in/ form, and not in thought At 
institutions of higher learning, 
your bewildered alumnui will stop 
in the midst of scurrying thou- 
sands and say, "Gee, but this is a 
lot different from S. S. C. Gee, 1 
miss the dear old place! Do you 
suppose they ever miss us?" When 
summer school opens next June, 
won't you think a little about us? 
We are sure going to be thinking 
about you. 


How many times I read your mail, 
And wondered how, and why. 
And how you sat and held your

Although I know you know just 
how, just , 

Why, and when to write. 

And how to spell each word cor- 

And place the periods right 

I wish I could I know I would

If I had my way I'd change time 
The hours I'd arrange in this 
From morn til' noon would be the 
time for day; 
From noon til' morn would be 
It's more sleep we want, and more 
time we need 
In this atomic age of men; 
More time to think, for its thought 
that helps 
To keep the world in trim, 
I see it this way I must confess 
The night seems shorter than 
So if I had my way day would be 
And night would be day, if I had 
my way.

Addresses Wednesday 

Stresses Practicality 

in the Classroom 

William A. Early, newly ap- 
pointed Superintendent of Schools 
in Chatham County was the guest 
speaker at the regular weekly 
chapel hour in Meldrim Audito- 
rium, Wednesday, July 16, at 10:00 
a. m. 

Speaking from the theme, 
"Things I Think Are Important 
Other Than Things You Get At 
This Institution," Mr. Early de- 
clared that all eyes are turned 
toward Washington for political 
leadership, toward New York for 
financial leadership, and toward 
America as a whole tor democrcay 
in action. 

"We in America have been for- 
tunate in being exposed to de- 
mocracy," he said. "The only rea- 
son it hasn't worked any better for 
us is because we subscribe to 
cliques and machines. We in the 
classrooms are the worst defenders 
of democrac.v. We preach democ- 
racy and practice autocracy." 

He said that one must be humble 
to be a good teacher, that pride 
never made a good teacher. The 
public schools have shut their door: 
to the people who oivn them, he 
stated. Teachers have developed i 
superior air. "Show me," he de 
dared, "a superior-acting person 
and I will show you one who is 
close to being an imbecile." 

Furthermore, he declared, the 
people own the public schools and 
any day they withdraw their chil- 
dren the doors will have to be 

Turning to the area of tcacher- 
pupil-parent relationships he as- 
serted that teachers need to know 
the backgrounds of their students 
as well as the parents of each stu- 
dent." 'I am a believer in 60 teachers 
to a classroom which means that 
parents and teachers work so 
closely together that they under- 
stand each other ... It takes 16 
hours a day in this country to make 
a teacher, he declared. Teachers 
should be members of various civic 
organizations in their communities 
because that's where the gossip 
goes on, and that's where the 
schools are evaluated. 

Why don't people in America 
support schools any better than 
they do? It's your fault and mine. 
They don't know what we are do- 

In conclusion, Mr. Early chal- 
lenged the group' to make their 
teaching functional by teaching 
things that can be used by stu- 

I Teachers Return 
For Educational 


More Teachers Studnng 
During Summer Months 

The presence of many in-service 
arid prospective teachers on the Sa- 
vannah State College Campus this 
summer indicates that they arc be- 
coming increasingly aware of the 
fact that pupil growth is synony- 
mous with teacher growth. 

After all, the teacher who con- 
tinues to grow in professional un- 
derstanding and in his vision of ed- 
ucation and of life will be a better 
leader of youth than the teacher 
who fails to grow. 

As we view this aggregation of 
teachers, our mind leaps beyond to 
consider that vast multitude in 
whose sei-vice the teachers are on- 
listed. It is for these young people 
that society has created the schools, 
in the interest of its own preserva- 
tion and improvement. 

Subsequently, on its schools, the 
nation has been placing ever-in- 
creasing reliance. It is only as w . 
grasp these truths that the full sig- 
nificance of teaching and teacher 
growth becomes manifest. In the 
light of these truths we can readily 
see that teachers are indispensable; 
that their quality is a matter of 
deep concern. 

We can fully realize how the en- 
tire future of our great common- 
wealth could be jeopardized if chil- 
dren and youth are entrusted to 
men and women who are not intel- 
ligent, not informed, not skillful, 
and not devoted to young people 
and to their calling. 

Therefore, teachers must con- 
stantly engage in those activities 
that make for personal and profes- 
sional development. In this way, 
o;ily can they become teachers who 
are superbly fitted for their im- 
portant task; who know how to co- 
operate with others; who under- 
stand how children grow and de- 
velop; who know how to guide I 
learning: and

ng for 
the family, 

A practical expression of inte- 
rior decoration was carried out 
through the furnishing of a five- 
room demonstration cottage built 
by trade classes in the Division of 
Trades and Industries. Through 
the courtesy of the Haverty Furni- 
ture Company of Savannah, mod- 
ern furniture was selected and used 
for demonstration purposes. All 
drapery used in the cottage was de- 
signed and constructed by the 
classes in drapery. 

Open Houae Held 
A shared educational experience 
n the enjoyment of goals achieved 
In the workshop, was the All-Cam- 
pus Open House which was held 
during the last week of the sea 
slon on Herty Hall lawn. Loom- 
craft articles in the form of stoles, 
purses, drapery material, wood- 
craft, sewing stands .silent valets, 
what-not racks, condiment boxes, 
children's furniture, re-upholstered 
furniture, and slip-covered furni- 
ture, were displayed. Over 700 
awed guests were served dellciou 
refreshments of sandwiches, cake 
and punch. 

Many Consultanta Used 
A number of off-campus consul- 
tants, as well as Savannah State 
faculty and staff members, were 
called In to discuss various prob- 
lems pertaining to the purpose of 
the workshop. Visiting consultants 
were: Mrs. Irma Williams, slip- 
cover and drapery specialist of Sa- 
vannah; Mrs. Stella G. Minlck, fab- 
ric designer and weaving specialist 
whose studios are located at 6 East 
Liberty Street, Savannah; Dr.

of Health Education for Negroes, 
spoke to the In-service teachers

ehftiiel services on July f), 1952 in 
Meldrim Auditorium. 

He was introduced by President 
W. K. Payne of Savannah Stato

pointing out that liecauso of dis- 
coveries in medicine, communicable

Dr. Mason who works cloaoly. 
wltli the health programs in Negro

The Anonymous Letter 

A Short Stary 

By Emma C. Bryant 

English 412, Creative Writing July 

21. 1952. Mrs. E. J. Campbell. 


I gave a sigh of relief when the 
train pulled out from the station. I 
was not happy but I had succeeded 
in leaving without encountering 
anyone that would be curious about 
by actions. This was an all night 
trip on a slow train so I leaned 
back in my seat and gradually 
became lost with the pa.=it. 

It was 1904 when Jay said, 
"Remember your promise, wait for 
me." Then he leaped from the plat- 
form of the train. I made no re- 
sponse. Only a smile and tear 
dimmed eyes expressed my feel- 

Jay and I had been lovers around 
the campus where wc both at- 
tended school in Macon, Georgia. I 
was on my home to Hawkinsville, a 
a small town in Middle I'joi-gla. 
Jay had secured a job and was je- 
maining in Macon to work (iumg 
the summer. He had to earn b'jme 
money to be able to return to 
school in the fall. 

During the summer we wrote to 
each other regularly. When school 
opened I went back to Macon but 
Jay went to a college in Florida. 
The happy memory of letters jjd 
my studies kept up Tiy spirits 
from year to year. 

Jay finally entered IVfeharry 
Medical College after gr.iduation 
from high school by taKing an 
entrance examination. were 
hard years for finance but Jey 
was determined to become a doitor 
and fate was on his side. There 
were no "mushy" love letters now 
but just an occasional letter or 
card to remind me of my prontise 
and to tell me of his work. 

After four years of coit'nued 
study Jay graduated from Mehany 
Medical College, He went to At- 
lanta and tx)ok the state m*'dijal 
examination. He left there and 
went to Tallahassee to take ihe 
state medical examination. He then 
went to Adel, Georgia to wait for 
a report from the examination. 
When the report came he had 
passed both examinations and had 
license to practice in Georgia and 


Now Jay felt sure that bfter a 
year of practice we would be 
married. Letters were frequent 
now, but it was really a year be- 
fore I saw him. He oame to vi«it me 
and meet my parents. Aft ;r a 
day's visit he left with my parents 
consent for us to be marri-d. 

I was teaching in the "rity school 
at my home but I did not apply icr 
re-election because of our plans for 
the future. 

My mother began to mane plana 
for a church wedding. School 
opened but I was free to relp 
with my own plans. However fate 
'intervened nnd I went to the 
county to substitue for a teacher 
who was ill. 

The school building was on Hie 
highway and the "mail n-an" as 
he was called passed daily. Each 
day I received a letter or a card 
from Jay. Finally "the letter" as 
1 mentally termed this usRial le+ier 
came. For a few minutes I buried 
my head in my arms on the f!esk. 
I was not cryipg but I had to plan 
quickly and act likewise. 

My plans were set, I dismissed 
school immediately and told the 
children that I had to po home. I 
walked toward by boarding place 
and asked the nearest patron to 
let his boy drive me to town. In 
a few minutes I had changed my 
suit, picked up a hat and a bag, 
and I was on my way with only a 
few dimes over my fare. 

Upon reaching town I went first 
to a telephone boO'th and called 
Jay, In a few seconds the ope- 
rator said that he was out but was 
expected within an hour. T r.illed 
the station and checked ttie trcin 
schedule. I found the train was due 
to leave in thirty minwtes. I came 
out of the booth walked out of the 
store face to face with an uncle. 

I said, "I'm lucky to see you. I 
need ten dollars." 

Without question he handed me 
a ten dollar bill. I thanked him. 

When my uncle was out of sight 
I walked over to the boy who had 
brought me to town and told him 
that I had to go home. 

I was interrupted when the 
porter said: "Change trains lady,

June Graduates Hear Bishop B. W. Doyle Speak on 
"Forty Acres and A Mule" 

One hundred and twenty-five' 
graduates and their friends and I 
relatives heard Bishop Bertram 
Wilbur Doyle, A.B.. M.A., Ph.D., I 
D.D., presiding bishop. Seventh 
Episcopal District. C.M.E. Church. 
Nashville, Tennessee, deliver the 
67th commencement address, 
Wednesday, June 4. 

Speaking In Meldrim Auditorium 
at 4:00 p. m.. Bishop Doyle chose 
as his theme, "Forty Acres and a 
Mule," and as his sub-topic, "An 
Essay in Social Causation and So- 
cial Therapy.' 

Bishop Doyle pointed out that 
one of the thinRs which had con- 
cerned him for many years was the 
disillusionment that comes to so- 
cial groups when, after placing 
their hopes for salvation in a pan- 
acea that has been recommended, 
they either attain the salvation, 
and find it not what they either 

hoped or wished; or they do not 
attain it at all. and find them- 
selves not only disillusioned, but 
also frustrated. Such, he said, was 
the case when following the Eman- 
cipation Proclamation, freedmen 
were promised "forty acres and a 
mule," as the one solution to all of 
their problems. 

Bishop Doyle was Introduced by 
Dr. W. K. Payne, president of Sa- 
vannah State. Dr. Payne awarded 
the certificates and conferred the 
degrees. Invocation was by the 
Rev. Edgar P. Quarterman. pastor, 
Second Baptist Church, Savannah. 
The Rev. A. J. Hargrett, college 
minister, delivered the benediction. 
The Savannah State choir, under 
the direction of L. Allen Pyke, 
sang "Ave Maria" by Verdi; "How 
Do I Love Thee" by Wilson; and 
"Hallelujah, Amen," by Handel. 

Bringing his address to a close, 
Bishop Doyle asked the class to 
stand. "This." he said, "is my 
charge to you. No one thing ac- 
complished In the environment can 
effect adjustment for a given hu- 
man being, or for a given human 
group, unless it be articulated, 
even fortified by a change in at- 
titude. And the change in atti- 
tude must come from within. Our 
progress must not be based upon 
any particularistic fallacy, but 
upon a conception that many fac- 
tors enter into human develop- 
ment, not the least of which is ca- 
pacity and ability. Forty acres of 
the best land, and a genuine Mis- 
souri mule will not accomplish 
much for a man who is unwilling, 
or .undecided, or unable to plow his 
land. And then again, forty 
acres of the poorest land, with a 
scrubby mule cannot be made to 
produce as much as more favor- 
ably located land with a better 
mule, no matter how efficient the 
ploughman is. It just means that 
no one thing will solve the problem. 
My closing advice to you, then is 
that while in the political process 
are developing those conditions for 
which you hope and strive, you 
must neither wait for the millen- 
ium, nor must you conceive that 
when, and if, that millenium comes, 
it will bring you complete surcease 
from your personal disabilities , . . 
Whatever you do must be salted 
with a generous helping of char- 
acter. Character is something to 
add to environment . . . Forty 
acres and a mule are not enough; 
but, if there is any one thing with- 
out which you will be at a loss, it 
will he character."

"Yes," and again I was in his

he took a damp towel and wiped

"I'm sorry," Jay said. 


"Yes, sorry. You see I've suf-

The New Schools In Georgia 

For almoFtt Iwd (Ir-ciKicH (■(IiiciildrH in the Stater of GforRla have been 
worltlnjc on a program for the Imprrtvcmcint of HchoolB. To many 
teaclKTH tlil« coric<'j)l of better nchooJH meant many different things. 
The point wherr' the HchoolH are today revealfl an intricate and inter- 
estin^ pr(i|c'o»(4. A» thr'He improv<'mentH have taken place many teachers 
nnd laymen hnvr' thouf^ht of the Hchoots in their old frame of reference. 
ITowt'ver, the nimiher oC chanReg taking place in rapid procession are 
forclntf tlie clevclnpmr-nt of ni'W concepts. 
Three particular arcfin of rhanRO 

conh'ilnitinK Inrjfely to the develop- 
ment of DiCHc new conci^ptH nf 
education iw*' Hiilarien, cxtcnilcd 
school termH, and the buildinR pro- 
frram, Whon HaliiricH for tcnchers 
were ralHod in accordance with i)ro- 
vlsionH of llio Minimum Founda- 
tion Program, ninny peoph' nnw tlie 
HChooIn in n new lifrlit, When tho 
j^chool term \vn» IcnuHiened to the 
standard minimum and (he pont- 
week ami the pre-planning week 
were added, many tonchorH nnd 
laymen did not iinderHliind what 
was haprx'iiinj!:. They often con- 
nldered Ihenc iin nmkc-work nctlvl- 
tles to juHlIfy (he ineroaHed pay. 
By tlie time the proRram reached 
the Hlnpc of conHtructlnp: new 
Hrliool hiilhllnfTB, the points of view 
beffftn taking on new aipniflcance 
and moanintr. Probnhly for the first 
time, many people realized that 
tho new era In puliUr education wag 
well on its way. 

As one eonsidciH lln'ne throe 
items, it Is not.difficuU. to undor- 
atand why now teachers or cx- 
porionced teacher.s with new con- 
cepts of their rcaponslhilltlcs are 
i-otiulred for the public sclioola. 
Never before lias interest on a wide 
scale been nrousod to pixtvide stan- 
dards for Rood tcacher.i. The Ron- 
eral education of the leaeher, the 
professional preparation of the 
teaehevs, nnil the quality of the in- 
stj-uctlon are Intimately tied to 
salary schedules. 

Tho type of teacliiuR and Icarn- 
ioR activities carried on in the old 
buildinRs cannot bo transferred to 
the new school lyuildinRs. The in- 
odequacy of the old routine and 
procedures transferred from the 
old schools to the new schools 
would appear startliuR and unreal. 
The fact that new buildinRs provide 
for the whole child mean odditlonal

quire a larpe group of additional 
learniuR activities. The arrival of 
the building program has served to 
bring about underatnnding of the 
other processes which have been in 
operation for several years. The 
developing concept of the now edfii- 
cation in Georgia is now in its in- 
fancy. The fact that the program 
has now reached the point where it 
may be readily understood and seen 
should help teachers and future 
teacher.-* to move toward better 
schools. Better education, better 
citizens, and better communities 
should be the normal results of the 
new schools. 

The colleges like the other levels 
of the public school system will 
undergo development in many 
areas. This growth, vertical and 'growth,

soprano's success matched her 
stage achievements. Critic C. J. 
Bulliet reported in the Chicago 
Daily News: "In Paris in the time 
of the Second Empire, the students 
would have unhitched the horses

pulled Camilla Williams through

at Orchestra "Hall fell little short 
of that in their extravagant greet- 
ing of the young Negro soprano in 
her Chicago debut." 

Camilla Williams has since ap- 
peared from coast to coast, from 
tho Holljfwood Bowl to Carnegie 
Hall where in the spring of 1950, 
as soloist with the New York Pbil- 
harmonic-Synipbony, she sang in 
the Mahler monumental Eighth 
Symphony under Stokowski. In the 
summer of 194E) she toured Pan-

Venezuela; , she returned in the 
summer of l!t50 for reengagements 
in Maracaibo and Caracas, Vene- 
zuela and in Santiago de los Ca- 
balleros, in the Dominican Repub- 
lic. Recently, too, she was one of 
the first artists to tour Alaska. In 
the spring of 1951, she was one of 
the leading singers in the first 
New York performance «f "Ido-

Festival of Mozart Operas. 

Camilla Williams' first record-

"City Called Heaven" and "0, 
What a Beautiful City." Early in 
1951 she recorded one of her favo-

"More than I? Impossible!" 
"No-not impossible." 

"Oh, that reminds me — I came 
to bring you these letters and here 
I am making a baby of myself." 

"I wrote you this letter. The 
next day I got one from you," Jay 

"Go on." 

"Then I knew if you had written 
this letter yooi would not have 
written again. 

"It is all so tangled. Didn't you 
trust me?" 

"I do trust you and love you 
How could I know where the letter 
came from." 

"Why did you say you were ex 
pecting me when I came?" 

"That's easy to answer. I wa: 
out, and when Joe answered the 
telephone the operator told him 
Eastman, calling Dr. Jay, Does 
that satisfy you?" 


"Any more questions?" 

"Yes, let's compare these letters. 


"Let me read this first: 

'Dear Dr. Jay, 

This is just to tell you that I 
cannot marry yon now nor can I 
ever marry you. You know my 
father has never wanted me to 
marry you. 

You need not answer this letter 
for I am going away to forget It 
all. I will not be here if you an- 
swer. I am glad I found out that 
I did not love you before it was too 

Emma" ' 

"Now listen to your letter:" 

Dear Miss Emma, 

Althcnigh you asked me not to 
wi-ite you again. I am compelled to 
do so and take a risk that you 
might get it before you leave. Why 
didn't you write the letter? Why 
did you have some one else to wiite 
it for you? 

"I must admit that though it 
is all too much for me and that 
I am both hurt and humiliated; 
it was honorable of you not to 
marry one man when another man 
had your love. 

I'll not trouble yau by writing 

Best of Luck, 
Jay" ' 

I can see it all now," Jay 
spoke after a long silence. 

"I can too. An anonymous let- 

"I understood when I received 
your regular letter." 

"If I had talked to you over the 
telephone what would you have 

"Guess I would have made the 
trip to get you." 

"Meaning — " 

"No, not that you came to get 
me. We had to talk it over, dear." 

"My enemy or your lover?" 
"Wish I knew." 

"The letter was mailed on the 

Yes — tell you what."

'Why tomorrow night? 

"I'm not taking any more chan- 
es of losing you."

"Yes, you are here and when 
you leave you will be Mrs. Jay. 
I want your dad to know my wife." 

"What kind of marriage will this

"Then you agree." 

"When I left Eastman I thought 
I knew what was right." 
"What do you mean?" 

"Just this. I'm hetre. Got a

"So what?" 

"What shall I tell my friends?" 

"That you are married that is 

all. We tried to let them share it 

but some one obpected to the

Will you ever feel differently, 
I mean about my coming here?" 
"Yes, I feel different now be-

No tonight. I'll go home to-

Vol. VI. No. 2 


South of "South of the Border" 

By Frank Prince 

My trips to South America 
have taken me to four different 
countries. In these countries, we 
find different customs and ways 
of Hfe in comparison to the Nnrth 
American way. 

In 1946, the 0I\ inpic team of 
the epublic of Panama, of which 
1 am a member, prepared itself 
for the Central American and Car- 
ibbean Games tliat were to be 
played at Barranquilla. Colombia. 
The procedures that constituted 
tiie securing of a passport to enter 
the neighboring country were not 
too severe due to the fact that I 
was travelling as an official of 
the Panamanian government. 

On December 17. wc flew from 
Balboa. Canal Zone, into the out- 
skirts of the citi, of Barranquilla. 
When we arrived at the airport, 
we were greeted by delegates of 
the Colombian Olympic Commit- 
tee, and a host of mosquitoes. 

We traveled from the airport to 
the center of the city, a distance 
of about fifteen miles, in a large 
omnibus. On the road we no- 
ticed the different scenes that gave 
a picture of the customs of the 
people of that city. There were 
burros carrying loads, a replica 
of the days of Christ; there were 
also carts drawn by oxen, and 
women with loads on their heads 
and babies in their arms. These 
scenes carried our minds back to 
the pictures we see in books about 
foreign lands. 

In the city we passed the Pala- 
cio del Prcsidente (the President's 
Palace), where we were astounded 
by the beautiful uniforms worn 
by the presidential guards, and by 
the architectural beauty of the 
building. We also saw the statue 
of Simon Bolivar, the great South 
American emanripatur. 
Traveling Is Fun and Education 

The follMwing year. 1947. I went 
on a similar trip to the beautiful 
silver mining country of Peru. 
Traveling by day over the great 
Andes mountains was both thrill- 
ing and frightful^ — thrilling be- 
cause of the privilege of observing 
from air this great mountain 
range and the craters within it; 
frightful because of the unex- 
pected and unpredicted stalling of 
the plane's motors. Of course, 
we all realized what would happen 
if we fell; those solid mountain 
ranges told us. 

Self-Help Building 
Program Success 
At Wilmington 

WILMINGION, 0- Oct. 20 (IPl.— 
Tlie stiideiil body and faculty of Wil- 
mington College are cooperating on 
their thinl major-self help campus 
building program. Four years ago they 
made ctlucalional history in headlines 
when ihcy hegan conslruclion in the 
volunteer work that made possible a 
new 100-man dormitory. This time the 
co-eds and fellows are helping to build 
a new fine-arts center; a one-story 
classroom wing of the new audilorium. 

A committee of 30 students and five 
faculty members considered and ap- 
proved the suggestion that the college 
community share in the construction of 
the new 5400,000 campus addition. A 
six member executive committee was 
appointed, and is directing the organi- 
zation of a program for this purpose. 

Two years ago the student body and 
faculty erected a new athletic stadium, 
and in between the students have been 
using excess energy- and enthusiasm to 
renovate the chapel, fix up some build- 
ings on the college farm and even 
help redecorate the local children's 
home. It has become a Wilmington 
tradition for the members of the col- 
lege family to help do it themselves 
whenever there is a job to be done. 

Wc landed at Limatoba Airport, 
a ten-minute ride from tho city, 
and were welcomed by. not mos- 
quitoes this time, but by 45-degrec 
weather for which we were uii- 
prc|)ared. We were unprepared 
beruuso we did not have top-coats. 
In i*anama ive do not use this 
wearing apparel because the tem- 
perature there does not drop he- 
low 6S. We are situated, geograph- 
ically, in the torrid zone. So otic 
can just imagine how we felt in 
this strange land. 

From the airport, we were e:;- 
corted into the city by a motor- 
cade of six motorcycle policemen. 
This we enjoyed very much due 
to the added attraction of having 
the populace attracted to our cars. 
We arrived at our scheduled place 
of residence, making the ten-miti- 
ute trip in about seven minutes. 
This place, Escuela Militar Na- 
cional (National Military School) 
is situated near one of the t'bief 
seaports of Peru. Callao. 

Our stay in this land of the 
Pampas, as it is seldom called, was 
very enjoyable. Besides accom- 
plishing our mission of partici- 
pating in track and field events, 
we made a tour of the country- 
side, and some interior sections. 
The average standard of living 
there is far below that of the 
people of the United States. In 
conq)arison, my home is about on 
the level of the U. S. Techno- 
logically, the U. S. is far superior 
to both mentioned countries. 

On our trip around Ptru we 
saw llamas, a very rare animal 
which is found almost exclusively 
in Peru. We also had the privi- 
lege of seeing a mountain, a sec- 
tion of the Great Andes, that has 
a snow cap twelve months a year. 
Here the people ski all the year 
round. Silver is mined extensive- 
ly in this land of the Aztecs. Mere 
one will find this metal as cheap 
as plastic is to people in the U. S. 
The people are very friendly and 
sociable. Spanish, of course, is 
ihe language spoken. 

New Chapel Policy 
Adopted at Penn 

Pittiburgh, Pa. (l.P.) — A new chap- 
el anil assembly policy has been adopt- 
ed by the faculty of the Pennsylvania 
College for Women. As recommended 
by a Faculty-Student Council com- 
mittee, the assembly month will he 
four weeks long, and students will 
have four cuts lo each assembly month. 
The rules governing assembly alW'nd- 
ance include the following: 

1. One over-cut to four during any 
one assembly month shall be made 
up during the next assembly 
monlh. More than four over-cuts, 
up ot eight shall be made up dur- 
ing the two succeeding assembly 
months. Over-cutting more than 
eight times during an assembly 
month shall be considered a sec- 
ond offense and the student in- 
volved shall appear at once before 
the Faculty-Student Board. 

2. If over-cuts are made up in the 
period asigned. any subsequent 
over-cuts shall be considered a 
first offense. 

3. Over cutting which occurs in the 
last month of an academic year 
shall carry over and be subject 
to penalty in the first month of 
the next year. 

4. Any over-cutting which does not 
come under the jurisdiction of the 
Faculty-Student Board, which shall 
be empowered to deal with them 
as seems best. 

The Student Assembly Board has the 
authority to pronounce penalties for 
first offenses against the regulations 
of assembly attendance. It also has 
the authority to regulate excuses from 
assembly and lo check reasons for ab-

ChrislmaB (or ihe year VJr,2 should be very real lo all age groups 
In America— especially lo young men and women in our colleges. The 
Iradilional joys and merriment associated with Christmas increase in 
value and charm as one develops toward maturity. The rich heritage 
of American youth whetted by college training opens new avenues for 
a genuine enjoyment of this season of the year. American ideals, 
inslilulions. and progress provide for each one every year greater 
opportunity to share and enjoy the season. May your Christmas this 
vear be the best because you have helped to make it so.

Choosing A Career 

When we come In lluil decisive stage in our lives where we iiuisl 
ilinnse ii life ciireer, nr ever earn our livelihood hy sources we find al 
random, we an: f(»reed In eope wilh one of lifi-'s greillesl ])roI)lcms. It 
is ihen llial one imisl he aide lo eximiinc his various capabilities, his 
likes atid <lislikes. hit) inleresls. and bis greatest ambition. 

Cbnnsing a ciireer is a problem to many. In deciding liow we will 
cam our living, many nf us refuse lo face realily. We bide from our- 
selves those little faults \\r have, which may prove to he a handicap lo 
us in our clmsen career. We deceive ourselves inln thinking ihal tbey 
will disappear as lime goes by. We decide to earn our living in a 
cerliiin way and ignore olislacles which nniy ibwart our success. In 
dning Ibis we tell niirselvcs thai "lime will iiire all ills." luid we forget 
thai "ihere are exceptions lo every rule.'" 

When we ihink of a career we tbink of a way in wbicb to earn 
niir livelihood. To many a career means nolhing imire, Pcrliaps many 
nf us would accpiirc a higher slalus during ihe course of our careers 
if we would be more liberal in on iibinking when wc are choosing ibem. 
Suc.-ess would piohablv come In many ninie people if. in cllnosing a 
life's wi.rk. ibev would Ihink more of wbiil ihev have to offer sneiety. 
ralber tluiii wbal smielv has lo offer tbem. 

Wlu-n one allcinpis In begin prcparalion for a career be should 
iisk himself ihe .picslion: How can I serve society hest? We should 
remember ihal nol until soeiely deigns us worthy do we achieve suc- 
cess. It might appear In the individual thai be is responsible for his 
success in society, bul ibis is not enlircly true. The degree to which 
one is able lo prescribe his cure for society's ills is also the degree tc) 
wbicli be adiieves slalus in society ami personal satisfaction. 

People who serve society liesi discover their greatest lalent some- 
where along life's way. When tbey have discoverd what iby do best 
Ihey incessantly strive lo nmke every p<.ssihle improvement. Tliose who 
nbUiin the greatest fame and recnpnilion usually do so by indefatigably 
striving l.iward the perfeelion of the work which they have dedicated 
their lives lo. Tliey do nol deceive tlicmsclves about "their capabilities 
or nilerest but face courageously the obstacles which confront them in 
llieir quest for success. 

When one chooses h profession there are many things which he 
should consider otlu>r than his present qualifications. He should be 
able In anlicipiile. if not lo a great extent, what will probably be bis 
desiiny in the career wluch he has chosen. One should ask himself 
>ueh questions as the following: Will I become bored or discouraged 
after biivnig begun my life's wovk'^ Will 1 be willing to tolerate the 
annoyances peculiar to my profession? Will I have the courage to con- 
tinue in my profession after undergoing strain and stress? 

The prohlem of choosing a career is one wbicb can be solved 
witliout great difficulty if one is willing to perform the neces^ry self- 
examination. One may think that such an examination is not 
important, but it becomes evident after one has begun to make prepa- 
rations for a career. 

Cluu)sing a career can be acconiplished without much difficuUv if 
every one who plans to enter smiie type of profession will first become 
entirely acquamled with himself and learn how he can serve societv

Who Can Speck For a 
Newspaper? A Puzzler 
For College Editors . . . 

When a news|mper speaks, whose 
voice do we really bear? 

This was the key prohlem facing 
the ."jfj'! delegates to the Associated 
Collegiate Press convention in New 
York October 23-25. The qucslion kepi 
coming up in a number of different 
disguises throughout the three days. 

A purl of this question centered 
about the dilenmm of whether a col- 
lege newspaper has the right to lake 
an editorial slaiul on a political < non- 
campus) contest. 

James Wescbler, editor of the New 
York Post, told the delegates ilmi nol 
only do they have the rigbl to lake a 
slaiid, but that "it is your duly." Com- 
paring the school administration with a 
publisher, he said. "If an editor finds 
himself in basic di-iagrecmenl with the 
publisher, he shouldn't he working for 

Hut John Tebhcl, vice-chairman of 
the New York University journalism 
deparlmcnl, felt that ibe analogy was 
false. The atlminislration could not 
be likened lo a publisher of a metro- 
politan newspaper. 

An informal poll taken at the con- 
ference showed ibat more than half 
of the editors had already taken a 
-taiul on the presidential election. A 
few others saitl they were planning to 
take a position, but would allow a 
minority of the staff to wrile a dis- 
senting editorial. 

Tliis brought up the problem of who 
Is entitled to speak for the newspaper. 
The following groups of persons were 

The school administration or the puh- 
lications adviser. Reason: They are 
ihe true publishers and policy makers. 

The entire staff. Reason: The staff 
puis out the paper and dese^^'es a 
voice in shaping policy. 

The editor. Reason: Only he can 
decide, for he is the one ultimately 
responsible lo the readers and the ad- 
ministration. Otherwise, the staff could 
shape policy contrar>- to the editor's 

The student body. Reason: It is the 
duly of the college paper to reflect 
the altitudes and opinions of its readers.

1 take yuur band - . . it's soft like the breeze of summer . . . 
You smile - , your eyes are bright and warm with the glow of love. 
Iland in hand we walk through the afterglow of sunset into the purple 
haze of twilight. . . . 

It's the last daj in November, somewhere in the deep and sunny 
South. The sun is almost gone ... its arm-like rays reach straight 
up into the heavens as if in prayer . . . prayer for a little more time. 

The evening is lovely. ... It makes one feel glad to he alive. The 
air is sharp with a tang of winter, yet it is warm and scented . . . with 
a fragrance that belongs only to fall. . . . The Autunm leaves sift down 
in great showers, as if they know that this is their last day . . . their 
last hours. . . . We walk through the gathering shadows, you and I, 
watching au'unin fall in death. My heart is sad, and I wonder bow it 
will be when autumn is gone. . . . Autumn with its skies so blue, and 
its harvest so brown, its rains so heavy, its colors so bright, and its 
evenings so full of peace and tranquillity, . . . 

A wandering breeze kisses your cheek, and sends your hair float- 
ing acress my face like a flag of ebony glory. . - . The smell of it 
reminds me of summer nights in a garden with you and wild roses. 
... I lose all thoughts of Auunm. . . . Twilight deepens. 

We reach the park. . . . How silent and beautiful it lies in the 
dusk. . . , The trees are huddled close together in the shadows like 
lovers ... as you and I. We think of this as our park, our world to 
which we escape and leave behind us the bitterness of reality. . , . 
Or should 1 say the bitterness of some realities. . . . For this is reality 
and by all that is truthful it is not bitter. 

Yes. this is ours. . . . Many times have we sat here and seen the 
lieav lis ail golden in the sunset, silently being transformed into the 
magic of nigh'. . . Here we have felt the cold of winter, the heat of 
suuuner, and the breath of fall. Many are the dreams we have dreamed 
in the shadows of these trees. . . . Here you and I have built many 
castles and seen most of them crumble. . - . Here many, many times 
have we kindled the fires of love, and with kisses that knew not time 
nor space smothered them until there was nothing left hut smouldering 
embers . . to be rekindled again. . . .

The Night 

By James B. Slaler 

The night is like an empty space, 
It seems as if everyhody's dead— 
The birds, the baes, the human 

Nothing is heard, nothing is said. 

I lie silence seems like a uorld 

In a wo: Id of night. 
Silence seems to rejoice 
Now that day is out of sight. 

And the night seems to have a 

peaceful light 
Thai can only be found in the 

But through the darkness it 

shines bright. 
And only the night knows where 

it parks. 

Then there comes a beatning 


The dawn of what is day. 

The night will drift out of sight, 

And the silence will fade away.

I but the present lechiiiiiue— reeoB«i'--

and the Siudeal Council as another, 
with the Joint ConunHtee for n clearing

What Is Christmas? 

By Timothy U. Ryal;* 

Wlial does Christmas mean to 

I truly wouUl like to know. 

Is it just another holiday 

That all of us adore? 

Is it the day when all mankind 

.Should give praise to Him above: 

To how and show sincerity. 

Courtesy and love? 

Is it the day when children are 
hopeful and gay? 

When peace descends, like a dove 
in flight? 

Or when the stars shine brightly 
in the night? 

Is it a time when happiness 

Should abide in all the earth. 

When people of all nations 

Celebrate Chrisl's birth? 

To me, it is a day to commem- 

One of the greatest in the year. 

To show your love and appre- 

To One Who always shares. 

He is the great Immanuel 

Who brought peace, goodwill to 

And throughout eternal ages 

He will in glory reign.

4-Part Teaching 
Pfan Set Up 
At Yale 

M'.U ilWKN. Conn.— (1. I'.).— The 
new Freshman Class of 1956 at Yule 
has been limited to 1,025 men in line 
with the University's long-range policy 
of reducing llic overall cnroUnienl to 
a more normal size. Last year's Fresh- 
man Class numbered 1,169. 

One of the highpoints in the teaching 
program this year will be a four-part 
"Plan of General Education in Yale 
College" announced by President A. 
Whilney GriswoUl last winter and sup- 
ported by a five million dollar gift 
from the Old Dominion Foundation. 

Two of the four pans concerns the 
expansion of Yale's Directed Studies 
program, Directed Studies, inaugu- 
rated in 19fI6. aims "to explore through 
siimll classes ond close contact between 
sludeiit and instructor the potentiali- 
ties of a prescribed, integrated, course 
of sliidy, a common intellectual experi- 
ence for the first Iwo years of college." 

A third part of the Plan calls for 
a tutorial system for Soplioinores in 
the 10 residential colleges. Qualified 
soplioinores may lake one of iheir 
courses in tutorial form, witli a faculty 
member who is a Fellow of the col- 
lege. The Yale tutorial system has 
been in effect for several years for 
juniors und seniors and now will be 
expanded and also extended to include 

The final part of the plan calls for 
an expansion of the Scholars of ihe 
House program. Outstanding senior:, 
who are chosen as Scholars are relieved 
of all formal classroom work and plan 
ihcir own schedule under the super- 
vision of a (acuity advisor. The stu- 
deiiu thus have more time and incen- 
livc for greater creative work in their 
chosen field of study.

Narcotics Education Workshop Held 
During First Summer Session 

By Johnnie Paul Junes 

A new and different workshop was conducted at Savannah State 
College during the first summer session — the Narcotics Education 
Workshop, It was designed to acquaint the participants with the 
relationshop of narcotics to the crime rate In America and the rest 
of the world. 

The workshop, conducted by Professor A. Van Frazler, consisted 
of lectures, field trips, audio-visual aids, demonstrations, classroom 
experiments and discussions. 

The chief aim of the work- 
shop was to teach the prevention 
of the use of narcotics and to 
conserve human resources. One 
interesting experiment p e r - 
formed by the group was the 
distillation of beer and Its ef- 
fects on the mind and body. 

Captain C P, Weimer, Direc- 
tor of the Savannah Police De- 
partment's Traffic Bureau, was 
one of the guest lecturers for 
the workshop. He lectured on 
the effects of alcohol on the 
traffic and accident rate in Sa- 
vannah, and demonstrated the 
use of the Intoximeter in police 
work. A scientific instrument 
carried In all Savannah police 
cars, the Intoximeter is used to 
check the alcoholic content of 
a motorist's breath. 

The members of the workshop 
also conducted a round-table 
discussion in Meldrim Auditor- 

ium at one of the regular 
Wednesday assemblies. The dis- 
cussion covered the effects of 
alcohol upon the various systems 
of the body. Among the specific 
things discussed were the rela- 
tionship of alcohol upon history 
and literature, wine and the 
Bible, methods of presenting 
narcotics information to .stu- 
dents of all grade levels and 
ways of integrating It with other 
subject matter. 

Miss Fairy Peyton of Memphis, 
Tennessee, served as chairman of 
the group She is a teacher In 
the city schools of Memphis and 
plans to conduct a similar work- 
shop for teachers there this fall. 
Serving on the round-table dis- 
cussion with Miss Peyton were

with automatically clo.slng fire 
doors and thus providing a safe 
means of exit under all condi-

The Rosenberg Case 
Goes Down In History 

The fury over the Jullu.s and Ethel Rosenberg spy case came to 
(L close June 18, 1053. 

In April, 1051. five Americans were convicted of conspiracy to 
roniinlt esplonajie agiilnsL the United States. The five were the 
Rosenbergs, Ethel's bi"othcr. David Greenglnss and Harry Gold. 

Offers from the United State-s Government to spare their lives 
In i-eturn for a confession of spying was turned own by them. The 
couple maintained tlielr innocence to the end. declaring their 
sentence was a cruel and uncivilized action administered by Auto- 
ciacy under Arbitrary power, Tlicy were, they said, victims of 
the worst frameup In the history of our country, but they would 
not yield their rights as free Americans. 

Tliey were the first spies executed by order of a United States 
(ivll couit. They were electrocuted In Sing Sing prison's electric 

Emanuel M, Bloeh, attorney for the Rosenbergs, fought to the 
lust for a stay-of-oxocutlon. Even tlie parents and two children 
of the (loomed couple pleaded for clemency, but to no avail. More 
Ihiin ten-thousand persons participated in a "Save the Rosenbergs" 
demonstration before the White House. 

Even after many pleas from the Immediate family and friends. 
P'l'deral Judge Irving Kaufman refused clemency and stated he had 
searched his conscience but found no reason for mercy. Were he 
to show mercy he would violate the sacred trust placed in his 
hands by the people, he declared. 

A preliminary to their execution reminds me of the story of 
Pilate, the Chief Priests, Scribes, and the people before the cruci- 
fixion of Christ (St. Luke 23:1-30; St. John 18:29-39; 19:5-12), Christ 
was a Jew. so were Julius and Ethel. 

Supreme Court Justice William O, Douglas granted a stay-of- 
executlon which did not last long. Justice Douglas played the 
role of Pllnto In helping two people who were accused of betraying 
their own country and divulging the nation's most closely guarded 

The government has closed Its book, and history will record 
the Rosenberg case as an example of two who committed treason 
against freedom.

The Korean Conflict 

One of the blcnesl contioveisles of our times Is the Korean 
Wnr. Few people In the world understand fully the Issues or prob- 
lems we tilce In the Far East, of which the Korean War is one. 

The Korean conflict began shortly after the close of World War 
U when North Korean Communists attacked South Korea. A line 
known as the 38th parallel which was to divide the North from the 
South was drawn. 

America and fifteen other United Nations countries Intervened 
to stop the Connnunlst aggression. Even though Russia was not 
directly participating In the war, It was believed by the United 
Nations that she was contributing men and materials to the Com- 
uiunlst cause. 

America practices the democratic form of government and Rus- 
sia practices the communistic form. As a result two different views 
grew In he South Koreans' minds. When a truce was proposed by 
the United Nations, the South Koreans, under the leadership of 
Synghman Rhee. bitterly opposed the truce because It would divide 
South Korea. Rhee wants a unified Korea, 

Now that an armistice has been signed, there is still doubt 
In the minds of many throughout the world that It will last There 
Is widespread belief that this agreement to end the shooting war 
ui favor of a political one Is only a stalemate until such time as 
the Communists deem It favorable to resume the shooting war 

The eventual outcome will not be known for some time to 
come. The problem Is whether South Korea will continue the tight 
for a unified Korea or accept the UN truce.

The Mosquitos 

Why can-t something be done about these pests?— the mos- 
quitoes. Simple items such as spray gun. Insecticide and a little 
time will do the job. And why not spray the marsh' 

Who is to blame tor their large numbers here at the College' 
Are teachers and students to continue toleration of such pestii 
in such large multitudes' Are they to expect relief only when 
summer school ends? 

Slap, slap, slap, "Listen to the roll call," says the Instructor 
but the slap, slap continues about the classroom as the roll is 
called. The Instructor, himself, is too busy slapping to do a good 

Job of calling the roll or anything else for that matter. He slaps 
his arms, his check, the back of his head, table and the wall. 

Every student In the classroom Is slapping here, slapping there 
and slapping everywhere. Slapping what? Why do you ask? 
Mosquitoes, of course. 

Each morning as students enter the classroom mosquitoes rise 
up from their beds and make their attack. They greet us with 
nice Juicy bites. To be sure, they work with the regularity and 
efficiency of an army. 

One day a photographer came In to take some pictures of our 
class. He requested that everyone sit still for a moment. Impossible, 
with such troublesome pests as these mosquitoes around. He had 
to take his pictures between slips. 

Students frequently doze in the classroom, presumably as a 
result of having lost the battle with these persistent little pests in 
the classroom and in the dormitory the night before. In short, 
they won't let you sleep during the night. 

I repeat, "Are teachers and students to tolerate such pests con- 
tinually expecting relief only when summer school ends?" 

We hope some remedial steps will take place presently. If not, 
we'll look forward to Vacation Day. August 15, 1953. 


The Administration 
Merits A Big Hand 

Dr. W. K, Payne has done a magnificent job in bringing about 
some obviously needed Improvements In and around Savannah State 
College. Rise and give him a hand. 

Have you ever done a job well and nobody seemed appreciative? 
Did everybody take It for granted in a rather indifferent manner? 

Well, this Is the type of situation we find here at Savannah 
State College. Anyone who has kept on the alert knows that gen- 
eral conditions are greatly improved when compared to general 
conditions four or five years ago. When I say general conditions 
are Improved, that Is putting it mild. All aspects are better. 

Teachers are improved, that is, their qualifications are marked- 
ly superior. It should be noted that the majority of them are 
teaching in their fields at present. They did not conform to this 
practice a few years ago. 

The students, although the masses could appear more cultured 
and refined, have certainly come a long way otherwise. They seem 
to realize that in order to succeed, one must study and prepare 
himself. They have come to know that Savannah State College is 
not a winter or summer resort. Many of them have ceased looking 
for easy teachers and "sop" courses. 

One can hardly help noticing the repairs and renovations of the 
various buildings on the campus. A few years ago girls were simply 
ashamed to entertain their guests in the dormitory, because of 
dilapidated furniture and the general physical appearance of the 
room. Camilla Hubert Hall is quite livable now. The hall floors 
are tiled, the reception room has been completely renovated with 
furniture settings which will compare favorably with that of any 
school. My! What a pleasant change. 

During this same period no place was provided in the dormitory 
for students to wash, iron or do hair. A student would be campus- 
bound If she were reported doing any of these chores in the dormi- 
tory. A girl had to walk all the way to the laundry to press a 
handkerchief. What about now? There is a spacious room in the 
dormitory equipped with ironing boards and wooden hangers for 
students' use. A special room is set aside as a beauty parlor. 

The meals in the dining hall are decidedly improved. One can 
hardly do justice with the comparison, Students now have edible 
food and balanced meals. During "Reconstruction" days, meals 
were neither edible nor balanced. Peanut butter, syrup and crackers 
were a favorite menu. 

Dr. W, K. Payne and his staff have really ushered in a new 
epoch, and should be commended for their efforts. Let us give 
credit where it is due. These are just a few of the many changes 
that have come about under this present administration. With un- 
tiring cooperation from supporters, SSC will be our Utopia.

The Arts and 
Crafts Workshop 

By Mary Patrick 

The Arts and Crafts Workshop 
at Savannah State College was 
designed to meet the needs of 
teachers in schools throughout 
the state. The workshop pro- 
vided the opportunity for gain- 
ing insight into the philosophies, 
techniques, and media of art 
education and ways of adapting 
these to the particular problems 
and enviroment of the elemen- 
tary and secondary schools. 

Experiences were obtained In 
the following: creative drawing, 
painting, clay modeling, paper 
mache construction and the 
crafts. Lessons learned in the 
wori^shop will be very helpful to 
students throughout the state 
this fall. 

Mr, Philip J. Hampton, of the 
Savannah State College faculty, 
was director of the workshop. He 
is a graduate of Kansas City Art 
Institute with the B. A. and 
M. A. degrees in Fine Arts. Mr.

Should An Athlete Be Paid? 

"No" Head Coach 
John Martin 

By Lottie Burnett 

An interview with SSC's Head 
Coach. John "Big John" Martin 
on "Whether an athlete should 
be paid to participate in extra- 
curricular activities." brought a 
negative answer from the like- 
able head mentor. However, he 
stated that athletes should be 

Coach Martin immediately re- 
plied, "No, athletes should not 
be paid to play. A good athlete 
plays for the sake of the game, 
and for improving his slull rather 
than for money." 

Furthermore, he pointed out 
that in a case where an Indi- 
vidual is not financially able to 
attend school, he should be given 
a subsidy. The various ways of 
subsidizing are (1) awarding cash 
scholarships; (2) granting work 
and work-aid and (3) having 
organizations that are interested 
in the individual as an athlete 
pay his expenses. 

Coach Martin also said, "IE 
we are going to subsidize. It 
should be on an involuntary 
basis. By that I mean it should 
be given according to the need 
of the individual and his ability 
to achieve. The only way the 
college can survive athletically 
in its competition with other 
colleges and conferences is to 

In conclusion he pointed out 
that a small college suffers from 
subsidization while the large col- 
lege profits. "If we are going to 
have a worthwhile team in foot- 
ball, basketball, track and other- 
wise, we must subsidize. If we 
can't afford to give athletic 
scholarships, we should have our 
extra-curricular activities on an 
intramural basis," 

Ford Fellow Tells 
How He Received 

By J. \V. H. Thomas 

"In December, 1951. Ford Fel- 
lowships were made available to 
all colleges in the United States. 
The purpose of these grants was 
to improve faculty members in 
the Liberal Arts area. Of the 
number recommended by the 
President of Savannah State 
College, I was elected," said Mr. 
J. B. Clemmons, Chairman of the 
Department of Mathematics at 
Savannah State College. 

In an interview, Mr. Clem- 
mons explained what he thinks 
accounted for his fellowship 
grant in seven detailed steps. 

The first step was a confer- 
ence with President W. K. Payne, 
who emphasized the importance 
of improving the caliber of in- 
struction throughout the entire 
college. From the conference 
with President Payne. Mr. Clem- 
mons stated that he recognized 
that this would make a real con- 
tribution to the training of the 
youth of the State of Georgia, 

In the second step, he was re- 
quired to write an intellectual 
autobiography which extended 
from the time he entered col- 
lege until his present status. He 
indicated that the theme of the 
autobiography presented was 
that he always tried to prepare 
himself well for whatever posi- 
tion he held. 

The third step was the start- 
ing of the plan and purpose of 
what he expected to do if grant- 
ed a fellowsliip. 

"As soon as I read the Strayer 
Report which affected changes 
in all institutions of the Univer- 
sity of Georgia, I recognized 
that the mathematics depart- 
ment was not equipped to do 
the new functions assigned it I 

"Yes" Athletic 
Director T. Wright 

By Margaret B. Lewis 
■An athlete should be paid 
enough to maintain himself in 
school, because all athletes repre- 
senting a school are students of 
that school and are expected to 
meet all student requirements." 
This remark voiced the opinion 
of Theodore A. (Ted) Wright, 
Associate Professor of Physical 
Education at Savannah State 
College, when asked whether or 
not an athlete should be paid. 
The interview took place in Will- 
cox Gymnasium on June 25, 

When asked how much should 
an athlete be paid. Coach Wright 
replied. "No more than any other 
student who is contributing 
equally to the same cause." He 
stated that since the financial 
status of students vary accord- 
ing to the parental income and 
other economic factors, all stu- 
dents do not need the same aid. 
"If President Eisenhower's son 
were an athlete, representing an 
Institution, he would not need as 
much maintenance as other stu- 
dents," he said. 

Coach Wright went on to 
enumerate factors which Influ- 
ence the lives of athletes: "First 
of all, an athlete cannot be 
helped unless he comes through 
the work-aid committee," he 
said. He further stated that 
they are students first, then ath- 
letes and they must have at 
least a "C" over-all average in 
order to be eligible to receive 
work-aid. He pointed out that 
the athlete must spend his time 
practicing and conditioning him- 
self In order to make the team. 
At the same time, he has to make 
his grades in order to stay In 

Coach Wright stated that stu- 
dents who are members of the 
band, choir, or other organiza- 
tions have six years to complete 
their college work while ahtletes 
have only four years to represent 
an institution "There are cer- 
tain rules and regulations for 
conferences and rating commit- 
tees of schools that have to be 
considered- One requires the 
athlete to maintain a passing 
average in two-thirds of his 
work. No other work-aid speci- 
fies such requirements. Another 
regulation governing athletes 
states that once he has signed 
at a school and finds it neces- 
sary to change schools, he is not 
eligible to compete In athletics 
at any other school until he has 
remained there for at least a 
year. When he signs up at a 
school, he has sold what he has 
to the school." 

Coach Wright referred to an 
Important factor to be consid- 
ered in deciding whether or not 
an athlete should be paid, He 
said. "Athletes are risking phys- 
ical injuries more than any other 
student. If they are Injured. It 
lessens their ability to carry on 
their other activities." He point- 
ed out that students who play 
in the band, sing in the choir 
or have other types of work-aid 
jobs, are not exposed to danger 

He concluded by stating that 
schools take in revenue from 
athletic performances. When 
asked. "What does an athlete get 
out of it?" He further empha- 
sized that the amount paid to 
athletes should vary according 
to individual needs, 
further expressed my desire, as 
Chairman of the Department of 
Mathematics, to meet this chal- 
lenge in both personnel and 
equipment." Mr. Clemmons 

The fourth step was a request 
that he contact prominent people 
with whom he had worked, who

well represented In the work-

certificates, others getting an 
elementary certificate and the 
remainder completing require- 
ments for degrees at the College, 
which time additional informa- 
tion was exchanged," 

Step six was the big moment 
which involved the announce- 
ment by the committee, April 1. 
1952. that Mr Clemmons had 
been accepted as a Ford Fellow, 

Step seven was to gain admis- 
sion to the university of his 
choice, "This was an easy task 
as my credits were all In order." 

Secondary Education 
Workshop Makes The 
Curriculum Dynamic 

By Mrs. H. E. Clark 

The principals and In-service 
teachers who attended tlie Sec- 
ondary Workshop at Savannah 
State College composed the most 
active and Interesting group on 
the campus. All members en- 
gaged in teaching tackled vari- 
ous problems related to the com- 
munity In which they live and 

The surveys, discussions, con- 
ferences and skillful guidance on 
the part of Dr. C. L. Klah.Clialr- 
nian of the Education Depart- 
ment and Workshop Director, 
tuuglit the participants how to 
make the Curriculum In the 
Secondary School Dynamic. 

The Workshop m embers 
learned to dirforenclate between 
11 "do" democracy and a "talk" 
democracy; they also learned to 
develop a "know how" educa- 
tional system rather than the 
old traditional "know about" sys- 

The 10 members of the work- 
shop were divided into groups 
according to their In to vest. 
Groups organized were Business 
Education, Indu.strlal Education, 
Language Arts, General Science 
and Social Science. Problems 
were discussed and rcsciftxh work 
done on the i)robIomH by mem- 
bers of the groups. Exports In 
the field were called In for con- 
sultation, The groups then out- 
lined Ihctr topic and discussed 
the cause, effect and po.S3lble so- 
lution of the problems. 

Books on curriculum planning 
In the Secondary Schools, special 
bulletins, educational reports, 
audio-visual aid films, records 
and field trljj.s were used by the 
groups to collect Information for

he said, 

A leave of absence had to be 
obtained by recommendation. 
Tills was granted by the Board 
of Regents of the University Sy.H- 
tem of Georgia, Mr. Clemmons 
pointed out. 

"The next task was to use well 
the $5,200 granted to study 
toward my Ph, D. degree In pure 
muthematlcH. After a confer- 
ence with the chairman of the 
department of mathematics at 
the University of Southern Cali- 
fornia, I was able to select the 
proper subjects to meet partial 
requirements for the Ph. D. de- 
gree," he remarked. 

After about three weeks he 
was recommended by one of the 
members of the department as 
official tutor of mathematics for 
the Athletic Department, he 
stated. Mr. Clemmons cited this 
as the most cherished experience 
of his career. After one semes- 
ter's work, he had gained the 
confidence needed to accept the 
challenge to continue his .study 
for another year, he added. Be- 
cause of his outstanding per- 
formance In mathematical logic, 
he feels that his research proj- 
ect will be done in the Califor- 
nia area. 

Mr, Clemmons hopes to com- 
plete all requirements for the 
desired degree by June, 1954, 
When asked how his advanced 
study would affect the mathe- 
matics program at Savannah 
State College, he replied. "I feel 
that I am better able to map 
the course which the college 
shall take, where the area of 
mathematics is concerned. Fur- 
ther, I am much more sensitive 
to the value of a department to 
operated in a systematic unit to 
meet the functions and needs of 
the college," 

In several instances Mr. Clem- 
mons gave credit to the Presi- 
dent of Savannah State College 
for his recommendations and 
guidance throughout this partic- 
ular academic adventure.

In many re.spcctH this general 
desire to learn and to Improve 
Is the basis for unlhnlted Rrowth 
jji-rsonallty and vision. Stand- 
ards of behavior In various 
phases of living may be ex- 
iunlned and analyzed. Almo!it 
everyone jjosscsses .standards 
which lie has develo|)ed through 
liiuiKlnntlon or through con- 
scious effort. Attending collcRe 
usually provides the time and 
the atmospheie needed to ex- 
amine one's behavior. There arc 
opportunities to see In others 
some of the things which arc 
desirable, and likewise, oppor- 
tunities to see some things are 
very repulsive. 

Attending college should mean 
higher .standards In ninny areas 
of living. One should expect to 
do better those things which he 
already knows, Hven habits, like 
walking and speaking, should be 
lifted to a new level. Agreement 
and disagreement on Issues 
should be expressed on higher 
planes. In addition to the ele- 
vation of what one possesses al- 
ready, systematic effort should 
be made to acquire new habits, 
attitudes, and ways ot expressing 
one's self. 

There Is also some concern to- 
day about the quality of per- 
formance which college students 
give. It Is unfortunate that the 
degree of completeness of an 
activity often results In disap- 
pointment to those who believe 
that education Is Important to 
happy living. Many activities 
show incompleteness and lack of 
cure. Some want to rrttlonnllze 
the situation by saying that there 
was not surriclent time to do a 
"turn key" Job. Habits of ex- 
cusing one's self so readily when 
carelessness shows Itself nre 
learned just as facts and Infor- 
mation are acquired. It Is time 
for college student^s to make 
thoroughness and completeness 
a part of all ot their living. 

In an age where the welfare 
of many depends upon the 
thoroughness of each partici- 
pant, nothing can be considered 
lightly or unimportant. The 
ability to perform with accuracy 
and thoroughness and to re- 
quire it of others is one of the 
traits needing emphasis today In 
modern education. The pride 
which individuals once had in 
accomplishments which were 
performed by a single person 
should be developed for coopera- 
tive projects. This attitude or 
point of view will lead to more 
effective community life and 
happier individuals.

its expansion of student activi- 

The book store has been moved 
from the center of the College 
Inn building to the back of the 
building, allowing the previous- 
ly occupied space to be used for

Prof. Lockette 
Tells Of Work 
At Illinois 

By Joe Anna Campbell 

Savannah State College. June 
26. — Professor Rutherford E, 
Lockette. Assistant Professor of 
Industrial Education at Savan- 
nah State College, gave high- 
lights and opinions in an inter- 
view yesterday concerning his 
position as graduate a.ssistant In 
the Department of Industrial 
Education at the University of 
Illinois during the academic year 
of 1952-53. 

"I did a research project and 
developed a course of study in 
applied electricity for the Indus- 
trial Education Department. I 
based my research on the analy- 
sis of electrical occupation," he 

Professor Lockette pointed out 
that the objective of this course 
Is to prepare teachers to handle 
electricity in the industrial arts 

"The students seemed to have 
felt the need for study and did 
study. They spent several hours 
a day In the library attempting 
to get as much out of the course 
as possible." 

"With the approach of inter- 
gration, and it seems to be ap- 
proaching, this should focus our 
attention on the need for better 
preparation at the lower levels." 
he added. 

Professor Lockette stated the 
belief that students should go 
about their work as though it 
were a vocation. 

"The 12 students enrolled in 
the course showed exceptional 
ability and background." he said 
In commenting on the fact 
that he was the first Negro to 
teach at the University of Illi- 
nois, he said. "It depended most- 
ly upon the individual more than 
the race. The question of being 
a Negro was just another inci- 

tlon room of the College Inn. 
The table is for the benefit of 
students who like to play the 
game and are willing to care for 
It properly. 

Nelson R. Freeman. Veteran's 
Secretary and Manager of the 
Book Store and College Inn, Is 
doing additional study In the 
field of personnel management 
at Columbia University this sum- 
mer. This study is expected to 
enrich activities in the Inn, Miss 
Doris L. Harris, Veteran's Clerk 
and Cashier. College Inn, and al- 
so a graduate of Savannah State 
College, is in full charge of the 
Inn during the absence of Mr, 
Freeman, Her duties: managing 
the snack bar. the book store 
and managing veteran's affairs. 

Miss Harris released the infor- 
mation that there are 40 Korean 
veterans in attendance at Sa- 
vannah State College. With the 
applications received to date, the 
number is expected to be at 
least doubled by September, 

The Veteran's Secretary urges 
all veterans to make a wise 
choice in their field of study as 
Korean veterans will be permit- 
ted to change their fields only 
once while studying under the 
G I. BUI of Rights. This change 
can be only when sufficient rea- 
sons are furnished the Veterans 
Administration Office to justify 
the change 

Korean veterans are advised to 
bring enough money to school 
with them to pay all expenses 
for at least a month. The Vet- 
erans Administration is now pay- 
ing expenses until the termina- 
tion of each month instead of 
paying in advance as with the 
World War II veteran.

modern, well lit classroom with 
reference materials and informal 
seating arrangement The teach- 
er served as co-ordinator and 
advisor to the students, putting

the modern school emphasis was 
placed on the individual student 
and ways to meet his physical. 
mental, emotional, aesthetic and 
social needs.

A Prosperous Year To Class Of '57 

Many New Books 
Added To Library 

Since the library is really the core of any educational institu- 
tion, it must therefore strive to meet the needs of all of its clientele. 
With this view in mind — your library staff has endeavored to build 
up the library collection and services. As a resuit of this there are 
many new books on our shelves for your use. This expansion has 
brought forth a few changes in library regulations and services. 
Circulating-books are now available for a two week loan period 
instead of the one week limit 

previously used. The number of 

subscriptions to newspapers and 
magazines has been increased, 
back issues of the New York 
Times, Savannah Morning News 
and the London Times are avail- 
able on microfilm. A recordax 
microfilm reader is maintained. 
Films, pictures and record col- 
lections are now in the develop- 
mental stage. In a matter of a 
few weeks, a new service will 
be provided for the convenience 
of our patrons: a rental type- 
writer will be placed in the stock 
room by the Graymont Corpora- 
tion. Persons wishing to use the 
typewriter should make inquiries 
at the desk. This is the first 
time, stock permits must be se- 
cured at the circulation desk by 
all persons who find it neces- 
sary to use the library stacks. 

In keeping with the institu- 
tional calendar of events and in 
the area of publicity, periodically 
attractive displays and exhibits 
will be arranged in the library 
reading room. It is hoped that 
these exhibits will help inspire 
and promote variety and growth 
in reading by our patrons. The 
library staff invites suggestions 
for books and other materials 
that the students wish placed 

Homecoming Nov. 14 
To Be Gala Occasion 

The Homecoming on Novem- 
ber 14 will be a gala affair. All 
members of the homecoming 
committee have rolled up their 
sleeves and gone to work on 
Dlans that promise to make this 
1953 homecoming an enjoyable 

There will be a parade the 
morning before the game as 
usual, the time and route of the 
parade will be announced later. 

The buildings and grounds, 
with all their colors, streamers, 
massive oaks and hanging moss, 
will stand out with signs of wel- 
come to all who come within 
our gates. 

Host and hostesses will be on 
hand to see that all of our guests 
enjoy themselves while here at 
Savannah State College. 

Notice the bulletin boards for 
announcements of what you can 
do toward the success of our 1953 

in the library. Suggestions on 
improving the library and libra- 
ry service are always welcome. 

Never fail to ask for informa- 
tion or assistance in library use 
if the need arises. The efficient 
service your library renders is 
also determined by the way you 
as a patron cooperate with the 
library staff and regulations. If 
you have not registered with the 
library for this term, please do 
so at your earliest convenience 
to avoid confusion. Please keep 
these ideas in mind during your 
daily visits thereby helping your 
library to be a place of enjoy- 
ment as well as a place of in- 
tellectual growth.

Brooks, Negro Pulitzer Prize win- 
ner in poetry, was published this 
week by Harper and Brothers of 
New York City. Titled "Maud 
Martha," the story centers 
around a Negro daughter, wife 
and mother who Uves in the 
Bronzeville section of Chicago. 

According to the publishers- 
statement, the novel tells in 
vivid, poetic prose "the fear that 
underlies every moment — fear 
that beyond the safety of the 
neighborhood world the person 
born with a dark face will be 
looked upon as an intruder." 

Miss Brooks' first volume of 
poetry, "A Street in Bronzeville," 
was published by the same com- 
pany in 1945 and in 1949 she 
won the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry 
for her second volume of poetry, 
"Annie Allen." The novel is her

Are You Guilty 

Dorothy Moore— '56 
The spirit of the Savannah 
Stale College students seems to 
be a little off this school term, 
which may be the cause of our 
football defeats. 

The students arc partially 
members of the football team. 
During the time S. S. C. is win- 
ning there Is plenty of pep which 
encourages the team, but when 
we are losing everything is dull; 
therefore, the team becomes less 

When a player gets injured 
the yelling stops and he feels as 

if the students think that he 
didn't play well. This naturally 
depresses the Injured player and 
Is the main time cheering should 
i:? dene. 

When a player is entering the 
field one should not make smart 
remarks because it will discour- 
age him and cause him to fill 
his position with remorse and 

So, if the students of S. S. C. 
would yell throughout the game, 
perhaps victory would be at- 
tained — if not in score — in mo-

Current News 

By Thomas R. Evans— '55 

The most shocking tragedy to 
be felt by the entire American 
public, for .some time, was the 
kldnap-murder of little Bobby 
Greenlease. This boy. .son of ;i 
multi-millionaire, was appre- 
hended by Miss Bonnie Brown 
Heady and Carl Austin Hall. The 
twin kidnappers received a 
5600.000 ransome and later mur- 
dered the child. They are now 
on trial in Kansas City. I be- 
lieve that the court's decision 
will coincide with the opinion of 
the American people on what 
should be done to this couple. 

The recent election and the 
appointments of certain officials 
to high offices in the govern- 
ment may have some effect on 
the present administration pol- 

The appointment of Mayor 
Thomas A. Burke of Cleveland 
by Governor Frank J. Lausche 
of Ohio, a Democrat, gave the 
once minority party a majority 
of 48 seats in the Senate to the 
G. O. P. 47. It is interesting to 
watch how the Senate votes on 
the next legislative issue. 

The election of Lester Johnson 
to Congress marks the first time 
that a Democrat has ever been 
elected from the Ninth Wiscon- 
sin Congressional District. The 
election was viewed with nation- 
al interest as a possible reflec- 
tion of a midwestern farmer 
vote on President Eisenhower's 
farm policy. Could this mean 
that Wisconsin is going Demo- 
crat in the Congressional elec- 
tion next year? 

The appointment of Governor 
Earl Warren as chief justice of 
the Supreme Court could be a 
strategic move toward solving 
the segregation problem in the 
public schools. This issue will 
come before the Supreme Court 
in the near future. 

Mr. L. B. Toomer. a local Negro 
civic leader, was appointed by 
President Eisenhower to the 
Treasury Register post. He is the 
first Negro to hold this office 
since James C. Napier was ap- 
pointed by President Coolidge 
thirty years ago. 

The Yugoslav - Italian clash 
over Trieste remains yet to hold 
the spotlight in international 
news. Both of these European 
nations claim possession of this 
strategic coastal city. I predict 
that the United Nations will in- 
tervene in this dispute and will 
try to work out an agreement 
between the two nations. 


Earns Madison Hudson— '55 
Once there was a troop of echoes 

Dancing in the air. 
Where tliey went nobody knows 

But I am sure they went 

They sounded like a band of 
beating drums 
Floating on a cloud- 
The sweetest songs one would 
like to hear 
But not so very loud. 

Most people thought it was the 
Singing their theme song after 
a silent prayer. 
To see this sight would have been 
an amazing thing 
But no one could get up there. 

So float on echoes, wherever you 
And keep the tune of your 
sweetest songs. 
In a mental picture we will see 
And count all the loved ones. 

Meet Our President 

It is a pleasure to greet the 
TIGER'S ROAR staff and the 
citizens which it serves at this 
season of the year. The opening 
of school Is always an important 
period for both the students who 
are returning and those who 
have come to the college for the 
first time. 

Each group comes to the col- 
lege looking for some definite 
things which are to be realized, 
extended, or started during the 
current academic year. The 
frame of mind is a genuine basis 
for progress if it can be sys- 
tematically developed. 

One method for developing 
this attitude or frame of mind 
is systematic planning. Students 
should write down in their 
diaries or career books or on a 
plain piece of paper some of the 
important things which they 
would like to accomplish or 
achieve during the present aca- 
demic year. The act of writing 
out these goals will impress upon 
them thenecessity for doing 
something toward their realiza- 
tion. At the end of the fall 
quarter just before school closes 
for the Christmas recess, this 
list should be reviewed by the 
student. At that time some at- 
tempt should be made to evalu- 

ate the progress made toward 
the realization or achievement of 
each objective. This preliminary 
evaluation will serve as a founda- 
tion for readjustments in goals 
or aspirations for the winter and 
spring quarters. A similar pro- 
cedure should be followed at the 
end of the winter quarter and 
the beginning of the spring 

At the end of the spring quar- 
ter a special time should be set 
aside for the final checking of 
progress or development that has 
taken place. In each instance 
the student should be objective 
in his evaluation. Care should 
be taken to face in every respect 
the situation as it exists. Where 
no progress has been made, an 
explanation should be forthcom- 
ing which would not be a mere 
relationship, where progress has 
been made an explanation should 
point up the things which made 
progress possible. It is my opin- 
ion that the application of this 
technique will help to make the 
school year a better year for 
both freshmen and continuing 
students. It is hoped that each 
student will give the plan an 
honest trial. May the year 1953- 
54 be monumental in the college 
career of each one. 

Perhaps you think I place every- 
one above you 
But, I love you. deep down in 

my heart. 
There are some things you may 

not understand 
But they are meaningless, as you 

should know. 
So please accept me as I am 
Because in my heart, I love you. 
Time changes things 'tis true. 
Yes, it brings things we can 

hardly bear. 
It hasn't changed you, your love, 

nor smile 
That's why. in my heart I care. 
Don't think I am a flirt 
When I am constantly with 

someone else; 
Please understand that I love 

And I want you for myself. 

When my love for you is being 

And what to do, you do not know. 
Just remember that I love you 
And my love shall follow you 

wherever you go. 

And every word he said speeded 
directly to your heart. 

And you thought then you would 
never depart. 

Just think of the times in the 

You kissed, and your heart beat 
as though it should miss. 

The time he was your Romeo 
and you were his Juliet; 

Yes, these are memories, mem- 
ories you will never forget. 


Nadene Cooper — '55 
Perhaps you think I have some- 
time love 
And my actions are very odd. 


Dorothy Moore — '55 
When your lover has left you 

and you are all alone; 
And your life is worth nothing 

but to roam. 
Just bring into your memory the 

time he was home, 
Yet. those days are passed and 


Think of the times you strolled 
in the park;

To me you are a poem, 

A lovely poem, 
-A poem whose writer is He who 
Across the sky the milky way, 
A poem that moves with the 
grace of 
Drifting clouds on a still day. 

To me you are a picture. 

A lovely picture, 
A picture whose painter is He 
Paints the sunsets and the 
And the glory of autumn. 
A picture whose beauty shall 
never fade, 
But always be as fresh as the 

To me you are a song 
A lovely song . . . 

Whose composer is He who com- 
posed the music of the wind

A song whose melody I hear

ing me when the shadows 
are deep . . .

"Manly Deeds, Scholarship and 
Love for All Mankind," these are 
the aims of Alpha Phi Alpha. 

This year marks the fifth year 
that the Alpha Phi Alpha Fra- 
ternity has been in existence on 
the campus of Savannah State 

The Alphas are planning to 
make this year one of the great 
strides of progress. During the 
school year this organization will 
celebrate their annual observ- 
ance of Pounder's Day, Educa- 
tion for Citizenship Week, and 
many other inspirational and ed- 
ucational activities. 

The officers of Alpha Phi Al- 
pha Fraternity, Delta Eta chap- 
ter this year are as follows: pres- 
ident, Curtis V, Cooper; corre- 
sponding secretary. John B. Mid- 
dleton; recording secretary, Wil- 
lie J. Anderson; dean of pledges, 
Ruben L. Gamble; financial sec- 
retary, William D. Wood. Jr.; 
treasurer, Timothy U, Ryals; his- 
torian, Thomas J. Polite; chap- 
lain, Charles L. Brannen; ser- 
geant-at-arms, Rudolph V. Hard- 

These officers of Delta Eta 
Chapter are working hard to 
maintain the objectives and tra- 
ditions of Alpha Phi Alpha since 
its historical beginning. Decem- 
ber 4, 1906, at Cornell University. 
Ithaca, N. Y. 

The Alpha Kappa Alpha Soror- 
ity under the leadership of Miss 
Delores Perry is planning big 
things for the campus and com- 

I hope you're looking forward 
to its annual play which will be 
presented either the winter or 
spring quarter. And don't forget 
"fashionetta" on the 20th of No- 

Alpha Kappa Alpha has many 
other surprises in store for you, 
so keep your eyes and ears open. 

The Gamma Clii Chapter of 
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity 
opens its 1953-54 school year with 

the following new officers: 
James Curtis. Polemarch 
Ezra Merritt, Vice-Polemarch 
James F. Densler, Keeper of 

Archie Robinson. Keeper of 
Samson Frazier. Historian 
James Murray. Strategus 
Oscar Dillard. Dean of Pledges 
With these able officers work- 
ing coherently to achieve, we feel 
certain that this will be the 
Kappas' most successful year at 
Savannah State College. 

During the summer months, 
the Kappas who were enrolled, 
worked cooperatively with the 
Savannah Alumni Chapter and 
published the "KAPPA KOL- 
UMN," a monthly news digest. 
These publications were designed 
to inform vacationing brothers 
of the happenings on the local 
scene; as well as to serve as a 
stimulant for the forthcoming 
school year. The success of these 
publications may be directly at- 
tributed to the sound advice of 
Mr. John Camper and the very 
efficient work of James Densler 
and Johnnie Paul Jones. 


The Alpha Gamma Chapter of 
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity starts 
the 1953-54 school year with the 
following officers: Basileus, 
James E. Hill; Vice Basileus, 
Walter McCall; Keeper of Rec- 
ords and Seals, ^'ames Ashe; 
Keeper of Finance. Roy Allen; 
Chaplain, David Hook; ParUa- 
mentarian. Arthur L. Johnson; 
sergeant-at-arms. Robert Phil- 
son; and Dean of Pledgees. Wal- 
ter McCall. 

Even though the chapter is 
relatively small, the year prom- 
ises to be a very prosperous one. 
To uphold its cardinal principles 
—scholarship, perseverance, up- 
lift, manhood— and to instill in 
all Savannah State College stu- 
dents the need of brotherhood 
are the chapter's aims. We must 
remember— "Men are judged by 
their fruit."

"The body Is the shell of the 

soul, and the dress the husk of 

that shell; but the husk often 

tells what the kernel Is." 

To dress well and appropri- 
ately denotes that one is not 
only educationally efficient but 
culturally secure. There is an 
appropriate attire for any and 
every occasion. School clothes 
should be simple, conservative, 
yet fashionable. Set off last 
year's sweaters with a small but 
colorful scarf, a dainty collar or 
a simple yet attractive necklace. 
A well groomed young lady is 
never overdressed. This holds 
true for church, dinner, teas, and 
formals. The simplest garment 
can be made the most attractlviv 
The young man's problem In 
dress is a simple one, A well- 
pressed dark suit is always hi 
good taste excluding strictly 

Remember . . . neatness and 
cleanliness are necessary always 
to give character and poise.

Greek-Letter organization to en- 
ter the Savannah State College

est Greek group, the members 
have initiated many projects 
that help to enrich our college 

Socially, Delta Nu sponsors 
two parties. Of the group Is the 
much talked about Raggedy Ann 
and Andy Ball which has proved 
fun for all in the past. 

Educationally, the Deltas spon-

arship projects. Each year the 
Freshman woman who has the 
highest cumulative average is 
honored at the May Week Chapel 

A careful examination of the 
1953-54 plans for Delta Nu will 
prove that the members have 
planned a program that is In 
keeping wit hthe public motto of 
the sorority— "Intelligence is the 
torch of Wisdom."

Give Thanks- 
For What 

Ruby Simmons — '54 
Shirley L. Jenkins — '54 

For the new suit you got for 
Homecoming, the new car you 
cruise around in, or for being 
able to attend the dance after 
the game. No, we should be 
thankful for more than these. 
For Thanksgiving is a special 
time to say a special thank-you 
to God for food, family, friends, 
and home. 

The first Thanksgiving was 
celebrated in 1621 by a group of 
people known as the Pilgrims, 
under the leadership of Governor 
Bradford. However, like most 
of our international holidays, the 
germ dates back to the olden 

Even though the Pilgrims cel- 
ebrated the first Thanksgiving 
in 1621, it did not become na- 
tionally known until 1789 during 
the Washington administration. 
Washington's proclamation did 
not prove to be effective, because 
the custom of all Americans cele- 
brating Thanksgiving on the 
same day did not last. Some 
states observed Thanksgiving on 
one date, some on another and 
some did not observe it at all. 

It was Mrs. Sarah Hale, Amer- 
ica's first woman editor, who, 
through editorial reports and 
letters to the Governors of all 
the states, and the President, 
asked them to aid in the reissu- 
ing of the national Thanksgiving 
Proclamation. Finally, her hopes 
were fulfilled in 1863. when Pres- 
ident Lincoln issued the first 
truly national Thanksgiving 
Proclamation, setting apart the 
last Thursday in November as 
the date to be observed. 

While the first national cele- 
bration of the day was held in 
1863, the first international cele- 
bration was held in Washington 
in 1909. It was conceived by the 
Rev. Dr. William T. Russell, rec- 
tor of St. Patrick's Catholic 
Church in that city, and held in 
obedience to a request from Car- 
dinal Gibbons. Dr. Russell 
planned what he called a Pan 
American celebration to be at- 
tended by the representatives of 
all the Latin-American countries 
in the national capital and thus 
establishing the International 

As our forefathers, from 1621 
down through the centuries, cel- 
ebrated Thanksgiving, we, in the 
twentieth century, celebrate it 
In much the same spirit as they 
did. Church services are held for 
those who wish to keep in touch 
with the religious spirit of the 
day; however, with the large ma- 
jority of us. it is peculiarly a 
home festival. 

And Thanksgiving comes at 
just the very best time for a 
feast. The fat old gobbler has 
reached his perfection; the 
pumpkin smiles a golden smile: 
the harvest is in; cider sparkles 
in the mill. 

But when we Americans gath- 
er for Thanksgiving dinner, we 
should remember the Pilgrims

Parade] [Colorful; 
Homecoming Activities 

The homecoming parade was a very colorful event. Charming 
Miss Henrice Thomas reigned as Miss Savannah State, queen of 
Autumn Fiesta, which was the college wide, homecoming theme. 

Misses Beatrice Walker and Evelyn James flanked the queen on 
a beautifully decorated float that followed the. high stepping Savan- 
nah State band directed by Mr. L. Allen Pyke.

The rhythmic success of the parade can also be attributed to 
other participating bands. They were: the William James High 
School band, Statesboro, Georgia; Risley High School band, Bruns- 
wick, Georgia; Alfred E. Beach accessories worn by the lovely 

High School band, Savannah. 
Georgia; Woodville High School 
band. Savannah. Georgia. 

The band members were 
dressed in their respective school 
uniforms and marched with pep 
and skill through the streets of 

The cars and floats were skill- 
fully decorated and made an eye- 
catching impression as the array 
of autumn colors moved through 
the city streets. 

The sidewalks were crowded 
with onlookers and the outstand- 
ing floats and cars were applaud- 
ed as they passed by the enthusi- 
astic bystanders. 

Blue, gold, yellow, red and 
brown were the dominant colors 
used in suit combinations and 

queens and their attendants.

thority, the man with a reputa- 
tion in hi.s own field may not be 
mentally tieener tlinn you, but 
may have more data at his fln-

So realizing possible things 
that woiild cause a person to net 
or si'cui mentally keener than 
you, sliouldn't ea\ise you to feel 
that you have been cheated n\cn- 
tally. Instead you should be 
prateful Tor your opport\nilty to 
attend college and strive even 
harder to develop yourself men- 
tully In the field of your choice. 

Not only mentally will you 
achieve In life, but you will pro- 
gress In every phase of life by 
being grateful for all things and 
by shouldering yoiu' responsibil- 
ity joyously, and launching out 
Into the deep In order to build 

One of the things that mokes 
a gentleman is being respectful. 
One of the methods that can be 

Current News 

employed In developing respect 
Is to first stop and realize tliat 
every person Is Judged as an In- 
dividual and not as a group. 

It Is that unseen something, 
that "Inner man," that will force 
you to have a certain amount of 
respect for yourself, your fellow- 
nian and God. 

When a young man is ap- 
proaching a door In front of a 
young lady, he may show respect 
to her by holding the door open 
until she enters: or in the case 
of a young lady, if she Is invited 
to a dance, she may show respect 
by accepting unless she has a 
reason for not doing so. Respect 
Is kindness and kindness is to 
do and say the kindest things 
In the kindest way. 

One of the crusaders of 
France. Colonel E. L, Daley, told 
his army when the going was 
rough: "Boys." said he, "your 
name is Daley, and Daley stands 
for the ability to do things!" No 
longer should we let doubt enter 
our minds when obstacles enter 
our lives; instead, we should 
fight until the battle is won. 

Perseverance Is of great value 
in our lives— socially, mentally, 
physically, and religiously. We 
should try hard to obtain this 
In our dally living. To start a 
.iob and to continue that job de- 
spite obstacles will ofttimes de- 
termine one's career. 

Let your moral standard be 
not like a diploma that hangs 
on the wall, but within your

What is College Without a Goal ? 

Solomon Green— '55 
I am a student at Savannali 
State College and I have had 
some experiences of what Is 
meant to be a member of a col- 
lege family. All classes, regard- 
less of classification, experience 
doubt and liardships in the proc- 
ess of becoming adjusted to col- 
lege life. Since tlie first two 
months of school are over. I 
would like to think of all stu- 
dents as being fully adjusted. 

A student is a person who 
studies in order to attain one or 
more goals, or a student Is one 
who studies under the direction 
of a tutor with the idea of being 
like his tutor. Remember though, 
that being a student varies 
greatly from the plain definition 
— make sure that you put the 
definition into action. 

Until one has assured himself 
that he has studied and is 
studying diligently and con- 
structively, influences mean 
nothing. A student must study 
first of all his instructor: 
then his contemporaries or class- 
mates; last, but not least, he 
must learn to use the library 
constructively. These qualities 
are not difficult to obtain or 
maintain,. It is just a pliiloso- 
phy or code which each student 
must adopt and follow to his own 

Although you have paid your 
entrance fee, if you do not pos- 
sess these qualities, you have 
the college, but no goal. 

'Ihomas R. fc-vans — '55 

The cnarge by Attorney Gen- 
eral Brownell, that former Presi- 
dent Truman appointed a So- 
viet spy, Harry Dexter White, to 
an important government post, 
even tnough he knew the man , 
record, has disturbed the Amer- 
lean public quite a bit- — perhaps 
this may have an effect on the 
election next fall. I believe that 
Is more or less a political move

Our Center — 

Since the opening of our Col- 
lege Center there seems to have 
been careful planning of what 
should go on within to appro- 
priately accompany the name 
change from "Inn" to "Center." 
Under the supervision of the Of- 
fice of Student Personnel, a So- 
cial Educational Program has 
become active in the Center. 

During the school hour the 
program is on Monday. Wednes- 
day and Friday from 1:30 to 2:15 
and on Tuesday and Thursday 
evenings from 6:00 to 7:00. 
These evening programs are un- 
der the supervision of Mr. Nel- 
son Freeman and Mr. Walter 
Mercer. , * 

liiis program is designed to 
enhance the social growth of all 
the students of Savannah State 
College, The Personnel hopes 
that it will help to make a well- 
rounded person socially as well 
as educationally of all Savannah 
State's students. 

The Personnel invites all or- 
ganizations on our campus to 
take part in the afternoon or 
evening programs. 

There will be a variety of pro- 
grams and some strictly educa- 
tional. I 

Jjuimg the past weeks these 
programs have been very educa- 
tional and social. I hope that 
the students will gain some form 
of enjoyment from them. 

On November 11. which was 
.■\rmistice Day, Miss J. G. Sellers 
gave an inspiring talk on "Date 
Data." Miss Sellers brought out 
very clearly many interesting 
points. Some were; not to take 
your dating too seriously, be- 
cause every girl or boy you meet 
couldn't turn out to be a big 
thing In your life; try to know 
many types well; because before 
long you'll be making a perma- 
nent choice. 

She pointed out to the girls, 
that if a girl wants a fellow to 
Lome back again and again make 
every hour she spends with him 
.so much fun that he'll want to 
come back. Don't show jealousy, 
be a good fellow, understanding 
and tactful at all times. Finally, 
always show kindness in every- 
thing you say and do. 

These social educational pro- 
grams are set aside for you to 
help you grow both educationally 
and socially. 
Assembly Hour — 

Our assembly hour, which is 
held each Thursday at 12:C0. 
convenes at this time to give In- 
formation to the students re- 
garding the school set-up and 
school activities. It provides the 
means by which students can 
hear different speakers and re- 
ceive many other kinds of im- 
portant information that they 
would not hear otherwise. 

As well as giving information. 
it is a training source in that it 
gives the students experience in 
appearing before the public 
which helps to develop poise, 
good speaking and many other 
desirable qualities. 

We have naa many interesting 
programs during the past weeks; 
among them was tne Spnmx 
ciuD s program. 

In this program the members 
of the tipiunx ciub carried us 
back 10 uays oi oia. Mr. ueorge 
Jonnsun, acting as Master of 
Ceremonies, gave us a bnei sum- 
mary oi our /incesiry. Miss ner- 
menia Mobley sang two breath- 
taking songs. NoDouy Knows me 
TrouDie Ive Seen and You'll 
Never Walk Alone. Mr. Curtis 
Cooper, one of the big brothers 
of the Sphinxmen. sang Ole Man 
River wniie 'I'homas Johnson, a 
very talented young man. gave 
his interpretation of the song in 
dance. Then, too soon, the pro- 
gram was over and we were 
brought back to reality. 

Programs of this type and 
many otners are those that tend 
to build us up into well-rounded 
young men and women. There 
are numerous of other reasons 
why we have an assembly hour 
but consider these and attend 
each Thursday at 12:20.

with knit seems to be quite fash- 
ionable this year. Be wise, 
ladies, be the clever shopper, use 
good taste but don't be elaborate. 
Seek the washable corduroy and 
velvet accessories to complement 
your outfit. These fabrics, to an 
extent, are year 'round, so — a 
hint to the wise . . . purchase 
garments that may be tubbed. 

Then ladies remember ... a 
well dressed young lady must be 
well groomed. Check the finger 
nails and polish, carry a suede 
brush in your purse, a compact 
with the necessary utensils and 
above all. a handkerchief. The

The Century Heating Plant, 
located between Camilla Hubert 
Hall and Meldrim Auditorium, Is 
nearer completion, with pipes 
being laid connecting the plant 
with the numerous campus 
buildings. This will enable Sa- 
vannah State College to have a

The Meaning of God's Gift to the World 

"Glory to God In the highest, 
and on earth peace, good will 
toward men," Christmas Is a day 
designated In remembrance of 
the birth of Christ, The day 
that a gift for the entlie world 
was presented, 

This divine present was ac- 
cepted in a stable In tlie little 
town of Bellilehem. The mean- 
ing of God's girt cannot be over- 
empliasl/ed because of the slg- 
niricimt part that It plays In our 
world of chaos. The gift of 
which Isaiah spoke: "For unto 
us u child Is born, unto us a son 
Is given; and the government 
shall be upon His shoulder: and 
Ills name shall be called Won- 
derful. Counsellor, The Mighty 
God. The Everlasting Father, The 
Prince of Peace." 

Jesus, the Son of God, was the 

gift to tlie woild, He was born 
In a lowly manger, lived In poor 
surroundings and grew up In a 
confused world attempting to 
establish the high Ideal of peace 
and good will. 

Christmas Is a time when we 
as universal brothers should bury 
all thoughts of hatred and strife; 
lay down our arms, our doubts, 
and look forward to an everlast- 
ing life of peace and good will. 
Peace and good will are the 
fundamentals of the gift of God. 
The singing of Christmas carols, 
the sending of seasonal cards 
and the giving of gifts will In- 
still in us Ihc meaning of God's 
gift to the world. 

The Tiger's Roar staff wishes 
you a Merry Christmas and a 
Happy and Prosperous New Year! 

What Christmas Should Mean to Us 

Doris ,\. S;iiuk'r,s. Copy Lilitor 

I wonder If we really under- 
stand the true meaning of 
Christmas. Is It just another 
holiday, a day for frolicking and 
having a good time? We seem 
to embark upon the Yulctlde 
Season with little or no knowl- 
edge of Its significance and what 
It should nican to us. 

Christmas Day. December 25. 
has been set aside as the birth- 
day of Jesus, "the Saviour" of the 
world. Everywhere this day 
should be a day of worship, 
prayer, and glorification to Jesus 
Christ. Certainly it is a day of 
celebration but not the kind to 
which we have become accus- 
tomed. We should thank God 
for sending to us His Son. Jesus, 
who came to save the world. 
Then, too. we should give thanks 
to God for enabling us to have 

the privilege of enjoying another 
Christmas Day. When the shep- 
herds saw the star which led 
them to Jesus, "they rejoiced 
with exceeding great joy." 

Lot us make this Christmas 
a glorious day. Let us bow our 
heads in sincere prayer and re- 
solve to give to God this com- 
plete day of worship and every 
day that follows. 

Let us sing as the angels sang, 
"Peace on earth good will to 
men" and make our Christmas, 
not just another holiday, but 
the birthday of Jesus Christ, Let 
us be guided by that same star 
the shepherd saw In the east 
and guide our lives to Christ and 
His teachings. And as we enter 
upon a New Year, let us con- 
tinue to keep Christ in our lives. 

The Why's 


Ruby Simmons '54 

Shirley Jenkins '54 

We believe that people usually 
misinterpret holidays because 
they do not understand why we 
should celebrate them or In what 
activities we should participate. 
When people understand one or 
both of these factors concerning 
International holidays, the cele- 
bration of them win be quite dif- 

Christmas Is an international 
holiday that Is often misused. 
Do you know why Christmas Is 
celebrated — carols are sung, dec- 
orations used, gifts are given? 

It Is said that Christmas has 
a two-fold significance: the re- 
ligious, commemorating the 
birth of Christ, and the social or 
festive aspect, celebrating the 
seasonal practices of many peo- 
ple. Christmas, originally 
"Chrlstes Masse" (meaning 
Christ's Mass or church festival 
of Christ), Is celebrated through- 
out the Christian world as the 
anniversary of the nativity of 

One of the most charming 
ways of celebrating the holiday 
Is the custom of singing carols. 
Carols were Imported into Eng- 
land soon after the Norman con- 
quest. The word "carol" means 
almost any Christmas hymn. 
The first carol was written by 
Francis of Asslsl In 1223 as a 
means of singing praises to God 
for giving us Christ, 

The custom of decorating trees 
and using other decorations at 
Christmas time came from the 
Germans. Boniface, who was 
sent there as a missionary In 
the eighth century, replaced the 
sacrifices to idols by a fir tree 
adorned in tribute to the Christ 

The giving of gifts at this time 
began when God gave the world 
His only begotten Son. on the 
day we call Christmas Eve. Later. 
on the twelfth night, the three 
kings offered the Holy Child 
gifts of gold, frankincense and 
myrrh, Christ eventually gave 
His own life to save the world. 
In an attempt to acknowledge 
the greatness of the Divine Gift. 
His followers marked this sea- 
son by a general practice of ex- 
changing gifts. 

A Christmas Message 

It is always a pleasure to ex- 
tend greetings to the students 
of Savannah State College at 
Christmas time. At no other 
time during the academic year 
are hearts and attitudes better 
conditioned to the finest ideals 
of our culture. It is a time when 
one remembers friends and those 
who are in need. It is a time 
also when individuals broadcast 
wishes of joy to all men alike 
irrespective of relationships. If 
this spirit of Christmas were not 
so fleeting, and if it could be 
retained by some means through- 

out the year, the joy of living 
would be immensely enlianced. 
While the students of Savannah 
State College are observing and 
celebrating the 1953 Christmas, 
it Is my wish that they may de- 
vise ways and means of increas- 
ing the longevity of this inter- 
est in the fellowman. May a 
greater portion of this Christmas 
remain with you and make our 
college and world a greater joy 
to mankind.

Creative Tributes 


By Julius Edward Reeves, Jr. 
When I have given my love. 
And gained only solitude in 

I find myself in a mist 
Of weariness. 

Nothing but loneliness am I 
Webbed in, to dampen the 

Of life with burning tears. 
I endeavor to accomplish 
High esteem in my venture 
For a romance. 
But never have I found 
A part of my ideal companion 
In any of my escapades. 

Nearest to this was you. 
But in our relations, you 
Seem to depart from me. 
Dauntlessly, I trust my 
Unmatched love 
In you. 

And probably — unconsciously 
I am left to ponder 
In a web of dreams. 
Never ending in happy moments. 
The only loving moment 
I share with you, is when 
I partake to unite my love 
To Its matured state in the high- 
Esteem of hfe. 

After this aire of joy, 
All is done, and that web 
Of loneliness closes me out 
In a world of my own. 
In this world, if you but 
Knew that there is no greater 
Love than My love for you. 
My darling. My darling. 
I love you much. 
So much, 'till in my 
Solitude. I find happiness 
While I spin the thread 
Of this moistened web. 
In which I live to build 
A dream life for you. 
And only you. 

In this out-moded life, 

To my best. I shall 

Perfect in a sort of 

Utopia, those ideas I 

Assume portray you most. 

In my utmost ability, 

It shall be yours, and yours for 

A surface of marble, 
Walls of gold 
And a roof to compete 
With the sun. 
You see. my love 
This web is built for you. 
And its composition must 
Comfort your love. 

Completed my task 
In an aimless venture. 
I shall ascend to the Gods, 
To the star of Venus that 
Guided me in life. 
Where I shall find no 
More solitude, and my 
Web of moistened thread fades 


Farris M. Hudson '55 
Oh dear hearts, can you guess 

what I hear? 
Sounds, along the course of the 

Melodies, from the breath of the 

falling snow 
Bring joy and happiness of the 

season's show. 

I wonder why are the stars so 

And the melodies I hear are so 

soft and light? 

So you do understand as I can 

see by your smiles. 
The melodies are in honor of 

the Uttle Christ Child. 

Joy is imparted to all of the 

By the glorious sounds of Christ- 
mas melodies.

I can imagine small children 
preparing to hang up their 
stockings for Santa Claus; col- 
lege students doing their last- 
minute shopping; loaded buses 
and taxis zooming away with 
the students homeward bound. 
All seem to be determined, hope- 
ful and aiming for the same 
goal— that of reuniting with 
friends and relatives back home. 
Christmas! Christmas! A happy 
time for everyone. Think how 
monotonous college life would 
become if we did not have such 
a holiday. 

But remember that wherever 
we go someone will be watching 
us, caring for and protecting us,

To you, who have "crossed the 
burning sands" during probation 
week, we take this time to con- 
gratulate you. Although at times 
you seemed to have wanted to 
turn around and not complete 
the journey, the urge to keep 
going was back again and final- 
ly it was completed. Now I'm 
sure you can all look back and 
say. that it was worth the effort 
and time that were spent for 
that glorious hour. Again we 
congratulate you. 

The spirit of Christmas has en- 
tered the hearts of all Savannah 
State students and we are now 
looking forward to the end of 
the quarter when we'll be going 
home. The Christmas Spirit has 
set many of us to singing — "I'll 
be Home for Christmas." 

I wish you all a very Merry 
Christmas and Happy New Year. 
And when we all return I trust 
our New Year's resolution will 
be to study hard for better 

—The Mistletoe — 

When we are home for Christ- 
mas and mistletoe is hanging 
around, do we really know why 
it's there? Mistletoe, a little 
yellow-green plant with waxen 
berries, is often nailed up over 
doors and around the house for 
decoration at Christmas time. 

During ancient times the 
Druids, a powerful religious group 
in ancient Gaul. Britain, and 
Ireland, believed that mistletoe 
was sacred, and gathered it in 
a solemn ceremony. The Saxons 
of old England also prized it and 
regarded it as a symbol of peace. 
When warriors found it growing 
near a place where they were 

fighting, they would declare a 
truce. And thus it became the 
custom to hang the plant over 
the entrance of doors as a sym- 
bol of friendship to all who en- 
tered it. If we are under mistle- 
toe today with loved ones, the 
tradition is a kiss. 

What happens to us in De- 
cember? Why are we full of 
laughs and happiness and 
gaiety? Aileen Fisher said that^— 

In December 
Everyone is merry now. 
Lo walking down the street 
And twinkly eyes and winkly eyes 
Are all the eyes you meet. 

Everyone is eager now 

To shop and trim a tree, 

And knowing smiles and glowing 

Are all the smiles you see. 

Everyone is jolly now. 
This tingly-jlngly season. 
And only cats and puppy dogs 
Can't understand the reason. 

Everywhere there is hustling 
and bustling as we all get ready 
for the big day. Gay carols are 
sung and heard everywhere. De- 
licious smells of plum pudding 
come from the kitchen and mys- 
terious-looking packages appear 
and disappear. Christmas is a 
wonderful time! 

In all the excitement of the 
holiday many of us are apt to 
forget the meaning of Christmas. 
Chirstmas is the celebration of 
the birth of Christ. It is be- 
cause of His greatness and the 
joy that He brought to us that 
we remember His birthday. 

A gift for your family and 
loved ones will be more than a 
gift because your Christmas gift, 
if you plan and make it, is really 

Again, Merry Christmas!!

Leisure Wear 
Glamor pants lake lead in de- 
signs for loafing 

The current television era with 
its emphasis on "at home" en- 
tertaining has touched off a pop- 
ular trend toward glamorous 
lounging clothes that are com- 
fortable and yet attractive 
enough to wear In greeting the 
most discriminating of guests. 

Designers from coast to coast 
have pulled every trick out of 
the bag to create fascinating 
styles in lounging clotlies and 
have designed glamorous pants 
that are strikingly feminine. 

Pants are being made of every- 
thing from fine laces, velvets 
and chiffons to denims decorated 
with jewels. Styles vary from the 
simple slack type to the gay and 
fascinating, tapered bull fighter 
pants. While there Is a number 
of plain, quiet styles In subdued 
colors which can be worn every- 
day and washed easily, many a 
modern woman prefers the num- 
erous gay loud patterns— leopard 
skin prints, and zebra stripes. 

For the woman who does not 
have the figure for the narrow 
toreador pants, designers have 
created attractive styles in pleat- 
ed pegtops, bell bottoms, culottes 
and pedal pushers. There arc 
also clever lounging costumes In 
felt and jersey versions of robes 
and skirts to add even more 

The Silkiest Season 

The thrill of this winter's eve- 
ning fashions seems to lie in a 
beautiful form of hlde-and-seck 
around the top of cocktail and 
evening dresses. 

New designers' devices to con- 
ceal yet reveal are: the casual 
looking but deftly planned drap- 
ing, the rib length jacket that 
hides a strapless dinner sheath 
beneath, more Important sleeves 
that reach up to the shoulder 
tims and Imposing collars that 
accentuate the bosom but de- 
murely stop right at the shoulder 

Even the glamorous ball dress, 
despite Its strapless formality of 
past years, often takes wide 
camisole straps, giant stoles or 
diagonal straps over one shoulder 
with the other bare.

gone a long way In the school 
year. We are quite satisfied with 
our oliolce for president for this 
year, Mr. James O. Thomas. lie 
is a veteran of some six years' 
service In the Army, having at- 
tained the rank of Tech Ser- 
geant. Tills alone, supported by 
such a brilliant showing of the

Is Indicative of his capabilities 
as a leader Mention cannot be 
made of all Mr. Tlioma.s has 
already contributed toward uuik- 
Ing the club a success. Our presi- 
dent may cn.sUy be con.sldercd as 
having a versatile character; he 
can be as shrewd or sympathetic 
as necessity may deem. We are 
looking forward to a prosperous 
year under \\\^ leadership. Other 
officers arc: Messrs, Herman 
Terry, vice president; WllUo B, 
Hooks, secretary; Henry John- 
son, treasurer; Harold Dupglns, 
financial aocrctary; John Paul 
Jones, parliamentarian, 

The club wishes to thank 
Franclne Ivery sincerely 
for being Its queen on home- 
coming. We are concentrating 
on a more impressive way of 
showing our gratitude. 

The Veterans' Club wl.she.s to 
Induce the membership of as 
many veterans as possible — and 
that should be all who are en- 
rolled at the college. Very soon 
we hope to see a comfortable 
percentage of the veterans as 
bona fide members. Plans are 
now being drawn to organize a 
"pool" that might offer pecuniary 
aid to deserving veterans at vari- 
ous times. Such will receive a 
minimum interest and only the 
entire club can benefit by It, 

It might be Interesting to note

Last year a survey of leading colleges 
throughout the country showed that 
smokers in those colleges preferred 
Luckies to any other cigarette. 

This year another far more extensive 
and comprehensive survey — supervised 
by college professors and based on more 
than 31,000 actual student interviews- 
shows that Luckies lead again over all 
other brands, regular or king size... and- 
by a wide margin! The No. 1 reason; 
Luckies taste better. 

Smoking enjoyment is all a matter of 
taste , and the fact of the matter is Luckies 
taste better-first, because L.S./M.F.T.- 
Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. And 
second, Luckies are made better to taste 
better. So, Be Happy-Go Lucky!

S. S. C. is into its biggest building program in years. The above photographs show the rapid progress that is being mode on the Men's Dormitory 

(left) and the Annex to Hammond Hall (right). (Locke Photo) 

Modern Equipment-Facilities 
Features of New Buildings 

The work on the new Men's Dormilory, opposile Hill Hall, is progrcssinf; 
very rapidly. The building is lo he equipped wilh modern furniture and 
facilities. SS.C. men will be ahic lo enjoy Ihcir beautiful surroundings and 
gain from the advantages of a home-like ulmosphere. 
Annex to Cymiiashini — 

The annex lo the famous Wilcox Gymnasium will have many intereyling 
features. There will be more floor 

space for basketball and other recrea- 
tional classroom activities. Showers are 
to be installed and service units for 
the men and ihe women students. Ade- 
quate storage facilities will be provided 
for supplies. 

Bricks and Mortar — 

The Division of Home Economics is 
happy to announce the fact that Ham- 
mond Hall is undergoing a complete 
face lifting. A new addition is being 
added to accommodate separate offices 
for the area of clothing and textiles and 
foods and nutrition; faculty and stu- 
dent lounges, toilet and dressing room 
facilities for men and women. A re- 
decoration and refurnishing program 
nill bring the classrooms up-to-date and 
in readiness for the latest trends in 
leaching. A feature in the modern 
kitchen designed by Crosley will be 
a demonstration unit in the freezing 
and laundry areas. 

Opening — 

\ formal optning will be held in 
order that the campus family and gen- 

eral public might see the new facilities 
open to all in ihe home economics pro- 

Not in [he Books — 

How many of us around the campus 
have stopped to observe how the mainte- 
nance crew bandies the moving and 
transportation of large equipment 
around the campus with inadequate fa- 
cilities and manpower. An interesting 
note was seen while the* men were 
moving frigidaires, stoves, a thousand 
pound deep freeze and other equipment 
out of Hammond Hall prior lo renova- 
tion. A mop — just a Jowly scrub mop 
was used to pull the weight of these 
heavy objects across the floor and out 
of the building to be hoisted on the 
moving truck. A factual demonstration 
of the laws of physics — stress, strain, 
balance and equilibrium. These men 
are not of the classroom or of book,^. 
Their sole responsibility is to gel the 
job done, whatever the order, and they 
do it. Our thanks and respect to the 
Department of Buildings and Grounds.

look pride in our accomplishments. .\s 
children, wc took pride in Ihc ability 
lo play a game belter llian ihc nexl 
youngster. As we grow older, wc lake 
pride in our personal appearance and

As students, wc should take pride in

Their bodies are bent to sliiekl lliem-

With every brec/.e ibat passes, 
Tip-toe on their high heel shoes 
And stumble into classes.

twelve brothers enrolled this quarter. 
After a very gay yuletide vacation, the

the Greek-letter Scholastic Achievement 
Award. This award will be presented

The Kappas promise lo present many 
cultural and entertaining activities dur- 
ing the year 19.>i. In .April the Kappas 
will present their Third .■\nnual Variety 
Show. This show promises to be bigger 
and better than the previous per- 
formances. If you, by some misfortune, 
were unable to make any of the pre- 

vious performances, stick a pin in the 
Month of April and leave a space in 
the memo column for the date of the 
Variety Show, which is lo be given 
later. Make this a must in your date 
hook; it promises to be ihc top enter- 
tainment given on the campus during 
the year 1954.

Some of our lihrury patrons chare 
with us Iheir impicssions nf "The Best 
Book I Have Rend This Year"— 

"I recommend to all lovers of good 
books THE CAIWINAL by Henry 
Morton Robinson, Thuugli nut u cur- 
rent best seller, it should he i\ inuHt 
on your reading list. 

It is a warm, human, well wrillcn 
story of a Catholic priest who rnHii 
from a hunihle beginning to a high 
office in llic Calliolic Church and be- 
came a wearer ol ihc red hat. The 
main character embodies qualities of 
not one priest hut several pricsln who 
in some way Icfl or make un iniprcH- 
sion upon the author. 

Though wtiiten about a Catholic 
priest this book is by no means wholly 
Catholic and, I am .ure, will be en- 
joyed by all who read it. 

I do not hesilQle to xay that it is by 
far one of the best hooks 1 have ever 
read."-Miss Mihlred E. Marquis. 

H. Gunlhcr is not the usual lype of 
biography that is read every day, but 
the memoir of Mr. Gunlher's son who 
lias pasted through ihe gales of the 

Mr. Gunthcr combiner all of the 
facts ol his son's life — before and dur- 
ing the long years of illness .recovery, 
and the time of his death. 

Truly, this biography was superbly 
written, and I advise all literary en- 
thusiasts who have not read ihis hook 
lo read it and see if they don't feel 
as I did." — George Johnson. 

"For the more mature mind CLARA, 
by William L, Coleman, is an excellent 
novel of race qualities rather than race 
prejudices. Out of the lieal and vio- 
lence of the smalltown South comes this 
story of a smouldering struggle he- 
Iwecn servant and mlslrpits for the love 
and life of one weak, drink-sick m/in. 

This is a hook that you will lon^ 
remember." — Mrs. Daisy Fraser.

'Religion, Key to Better Living' 

Interesting Highlights 

of Observance, March 7-11 

The theme for Religious Em- 
phasis Week this year is "Reli- 
gion. Key to Better Living." Keys 
will appear in the College Corner 
Shoppe. B. J. James', The Col- 
lege Center and other sections 
of the campus. Leon Jimes is 
busy getting the keys ready for 
the Week. 

Administrative Officers AH Out 

to Cooperate With Religious 


All of the administrative offi- 
cers of Savannah State College 
have been working with the Re- 
ligious Emphasis Week Commit- 
tee to insure a suitable atmos- 
phere for worship and study in 

Coach T. A. Wright scheduled 
his basketball games in such a 
manner that no games will be 
played during Religious Empha- 
sis Week and has consistently re- 
fused to make any changes that 
will conflict with The Religious 
Emphasis Program. Also, Regis- 
trar Ben IngersoU has for two 
years adjusted pre-registration 
to the Religious Emphasis Week. 
President W. K. Payne has ad- 
justed the faculty meetings to 
the advantage of Religious Em- 
phasis each year since he has 
been in office, Dean T. C. Meyers 
has scheduled final examinations 
to the advantage of the Religious 
Emphasis Program this year. 
The Choir Will Be in Church for 
Religious Emphasis Week 
Dr. Coleridge Braithwaite has 
agreed that the college choir 
will sing for Morning Worship 
during Religious Emphasis Week. 
The religious life program for 
this term has no plans for regu- 
lar appearances of the choir in 
Morning Worship. 
Retreat to Be Early This Year 
The retreat, an outstanding 
feature of Religious Emphasis 
Week, will be held early in the 
morning this year. According to 
Harold Duggan, Chairman of the 
Retreat Committee, it is hoped 
that the worship service and 
breakfast can be over in time 
for the participants to be back 

on the campus and in class at 
9:00 A.M. Students with 8:20 
classes and who anticipate going 
on the retreat should see Rev. 
A. J. Hargrett on Wednesday. 
Popularity of Religious Empha- 
sis Week Program Due to Ef- 
forts of Reverend Arm- 
The present popularity of Re- 
ligious Emphasis Week at Savan- 
nah State College is due largely 
to efforts of a man, known by 
but few, if any, of the present 
students of Savannah State Col- 
lege. It was Reverend Ernest 
Armstrong, College Minister in 
1948-49, who changed the pat- 
tern of Religious Emphasis Week 
observances that had been wit- 
nessed by the students and fac- 

In the meantime, Mr. Arm- 
strong applied to the University 
Christian Missions for a mission. 
The mission was granted, and 
during the second year of the 
college pastorate of Reverend 
Andrew J. Hargrett. officials 
from the University Christian 
Mission came to the campus and 
enlarged on the pattern initiat- 
ed by Mr. Armstrong. 

It was Lee Mark Daniel, a '53 
graduate, who took the week over 
as a student project and greatly 
enhanced the administration's 
respect for the ability of stu- 
dents to engineer such an im- 
portant activity.

Why Student Council Supports 
Religious Emphasis Week 

TIMOTHY U, RYALS, Prculdent, Student Council 
In a world of turmoil, confUHlon, and doubt, wc find a week of 
meditation very helpful and Inwplrlng. The Student Council realizes 
and feels that religion plays a significant role In developing the 
whole individual. 

To have faith In something or 
someone, serves a-s a stimulus or 
an urge to help one reach the 
goals he sets and gives one 
courage to approach the ultimate 

Religion Is a belief In God or 

surgery, penicillin, and varied 

Today, very few allmenti and 
di-seases of the human body have 
not been mastered. Yet, science 
Is unable to exercise control 
over life and death. Therefore, 
v/e recognize an Inadequacy in 
medicine. We are unable to ex- 
plain satisfactorily v/hy certain 
scientific principles and theories 
sometimes fail despite all we 
know and do. As a result, we 
are forced to accept the belief 
that a supreme being is omnipo- 
tent with regard to mankind and 
all elements of the universe. 

I believe that the true physi- 
cian is aware of the need for 
God's close association in the 
medical profession. Consequent- 
ly, in all his undertakings, the 
doctor evidences a faith in God. 
Prayer, too, is an essential tool. 
Faith and Prayer can be likened 
unto a crutch used by a lame 
man. It is unnecessary to labor 
the point that we are instru- 
ments in His hands. Without 
Him we can do nothing. 

supernatural powers. Christian- 
ity Is the belief In and 
his teachings. Most students be- 
lieve In Christ because he was 
a good leader, a true friend and 
kind to everyone. In order tor us 
to be good leaders and be suc- 
cessful, we must also possess the 
desired qualities— truth, honesty, 
kindness and the insight to help 
mankind maintain better social 

The Student Council is pa- 
tiently av/aiting the arrival of

heartedly to support it. 

Review Of '53 
Religious Observance 

By Elmer Warren, '55 
Dr. William Faulkner was the 
guest speaker for Religious Em- 
phasis Week of 1953 at Savan- 
nah State College. It is felt 
that Savannah State's future 
leaders digested the enlighten- 
ing addresses and speeches made 
by Dr. Faulkner, 

Dr. Faulkner stated that peo- 
ple, especially college students, 
should be sensitive to the social 
rights and needs of others. We 
should have a capacity for inde- 
pendent thinking and critical

Improving Our Moral Life 

Each year, a week Is .soL a-slde 
to empluiHl'/e religion, During 
Mils week our campus Is filled 
l.liroughout with a religious spir- 
it. Pioi-rinns bused on Christian- 
ity and fellowship with God and 
man aro presented. These pro- 
grams servo to enrich our minds 
and |)eri)etuale our splrlt,ual 
Krowth and development. 

Even tliough tliere Is a week 
set aside solely for Ihc purpose 
of emphasizing religion. It Is not 
a wise Idea to try to Improve and 
make all necessary corrections 
that are needed lo be made In 
one week. 

The moral side of life and the 
social side of life are different; 
yet, they are woven .so closely 
that they cannot be separated. 
We are living In a "Progressive 
Age," an ever changing society, 
In order to nuilntaln our balance 
and equilibrium, we must change 

along wlUi .suclety, This cannot 
be done l)y merely modifying our 
.social characteristics, but our 
moral characteristics as well. 

At this stage of life, we should 
realize that religion Is one of 
the basic fundamentals of hu- 
man development. It stimulates 
our desire to be respectful; It 
helps us to develop a whole- 
some outlook on life, and most 
of all. It helps us to get along 
with o\irselves and with others. 
It also Increases our love for our 
Alma Matei-. In that It gives us 
n better appreciation of the op- 
port\niltles liere at Savannah 
State College. 

Don't let your Interest In Im- 
proving oiu' moral standards die 
when religious emphasis week Is 
over. Instead, may It flame up 
spontaneously, warm the campus 
atmosphere and burn continu-

Reading for Information And 

Solomon Greene '55 
Since the author of any writ- 
ten material may have more ex- 
perience about his topic tlian we 
have, we may never understand 
his topic as well as he does, but 
we should understand the writ- 
ten work well enough to make a 
satisfactory report. Reading for 
information, obviously, is more 
important and more difficult to 
do than reading for pleasure: 
therefore, one should strive to 
learn the skill of reading for in- 
formation first. Furthermore, 
one should always strive for bet- 

ter .speed and better comprehen- 

As a prerequisite to good read- 
ing, a student should possess a 
good collegiate dictionary and, 
other than using it to increase 
his vocabulary, he sliould strive 
to define and pronounce all new 
words that he encounters. The 
student should have a critical 
mind and be able to evaluate 
readings for what they are worth

Manners Made Easy 

The practice of good manners 
is an art which can and should 
be acquired by every college stu- 
dent. It Is very important to be- 
come aware of the correct thing 
to be done on all occasions, then 
the performance of the act is 
very easily done. Good manners 
are in evidence whenever one is 
polite, courteous and thoughtful 
of others. 

How often have you wished to 
be as poised as your roommate? 
Or do you wonder how a friend 
of yours has such a "way" with 
the girls? Or do you wish you 
could always say the right thing 
just as Anne does? Some people 
seem to be born with that inde- 
scribable thing called charm. 
Others, after much practice, are 
often able to acquire this asset.

which may help you solve your

how to write notes of congratu-

coming to S.S.C, for the first 
time. For your information, the 
veterans here are organized. We 
urge you to join our organization 
so that it might benefit by what- 
ever you may have to offer. 
Please notice the bulletin boards 
for notices of exactly when and 
where we meet and understand 
that you are cordially invited. 

Any veteran who has been dis- 
charged for any reason other 
than a dishonorable one is eli- 
gible for membership. What 
your counselor thinks of you is 
determined largely by whether 
or not you are a member of this, 
your own, organization. 

Have you given any serious 
thought to your N.S.L.T? Did 
you know that you can get 
$1,000,00 worth for only $.66 per 
month, or any multiple of $500,00 
worth up to $10,000,00 at the 
same rate? Then you may pay 
it monthly, quarterly, semi-an- 
nually, or annually. After you 
have paid the premium for one 
year, you can borrow 94 of that 
and be compelled to repay only 
the small interest. However, you 
may repay the principal when- 
ever you wish. If you don't re- 
pay the principal, that much is 
deducted from the value of your 
policy. Most of all. you may se- 
cure a Form 9-886 from any V,A, 
office, mail it to the District Of- 
fice, thereby authorizing the V.A. 
to deduct your premiums from 
your monthly benefits. Isn't that 
worth some consideration? 

The Voice of the Y.M.C.A. . . . 

Cleveland Lawrence '57 

The members of the Savannah 
State College Y,M.C.A, are striv- 
ing to make this year a success- 
ful one. Recently, they organ- 
ized a basketball team. This 
team will play against other "Y" 
teams both in and out of town. 

The "Y" debating team has 
been organized also. It will, from 
time to time, be debating some 
of the major questions that face 
our everyday living. 

The "Y" sent two delegates, 
Mr, Clarence Lofton, President, 
and Mr. Eugene Issac, Advisor, 
to the regional council held in 
Atlanta, Georgia, in February. 

This Christian organization is 
one which you may feel free to 
look in on at any time. Member- 
ship cards are available at all 
meetings for those desiring to 
become members.

book. The scrapbook will be 
placed on exhibition a' la flni of

these activities. 

Each seance of le cercle fran- 
cais is concluded with some form 
of social entertainment. The pri- 
mary form of entertainment so 
far has been the singing des 
chansons. Included among the 
songs are: "La Marseillaise," the 
hymne nationale; the "real 
gone" "C'est si Bon," a' la Eartha 
Kitt and "La Vie en Rose."

Camilla Hubert House Council . . 

The House Council of Camilla 
Hubert Hall has given a series 
of Social-education programs for 
the development of the residents. 
The first program was about 
body care— hair, skin, nails, etc. 

On February 8, 1954, at 9:05 
p.m. there was a demonstration 
given by Mrs. Harriet Stone in 
the Reception room of Camilla 
Hubert Hall, Girls chosen as 
models were Misses Mamie Davis, 
Jewell Miller, David Hester and 
Nell Washington, These girls 
modeled play clothes. 

Mrs. Stone gave a lecture on 
how to wear foundation gar- 
ments and the importance of 
good posture as related to good 
looks. After the lecture and dem- 
onstration, prizes and refresh- 
ments were enjoyed by everyone. 

Mrs. Stone is a former Home 
Economics instructor at Savan- 
nah State College, She is now 
an agent for Spirella and Deala 
foundation garments. These 
commodities were used for mod- 
eUng. Mrs. Stone is presently 
resuming the role of housewife 
and mother, Barbara Brunson, 

Nearly every day of the week 
is set apart by some people as 
Sabbath: Sunday, most Chris- 
tians; Tuesday, Persians; 
Wednesday. Assyrians; Thursday, 
Egyptians; Friday. Mohammed- 
ans ; Saturday, Jews and Sev- 
enth Day Adventists. 

Mercedes Mitchell '54 

History repeats itself in every- 
thing-even fashions. Many years 
ago "spool-heel" shoes and "can- 
can" dresses, along with the nar- 
row skirts with drapes on the 
side, were greatly in demand. 

As time marches on. these 
same styles are returning with 
different names. The "can-can" 
dresses. In reality, are the bal- 
lerina skirts worn with a crino- 
line slip; the "spool-heel" shoes 
are the famed capezlos; the nar- 
row skirts with the drapes are 
actually the same; however, the 
silk scarf is rapidly replacing the 
primitive drape. 

Another feature which Is 
creeping into "Mi' lady's "world 
of fashion is the long free flow- 
ing lines mound the waist which 
are so reminiscent of those 
"roaring twenties." To be more 
exacting, it would seem as 
though the complete fashion era 
was being rclncarnatod. 

With the lengthening of the 
waist comes the shortening of 
the hem. which fashion experts 
predict will range from fourteen 
to eighteen Inches from the floor 
this season. 

Coat dresses are still at the 
prime In the season's run of lat- 
est fashions. This too, Is a de- 
rivative of the past— the old- 
time "Princess dress." 

This season, the coat dress Is 
done in smooth, silky looking 
wools and In colors that are nei- 
ther light nor dark. They are 
always neutral colors, often dark 
neutrals, importantly lightened 
with checks, tiny stripes or a 
dusting of white threads. This 
garment is often referred to as 
"The Dress of Sophistication"; 

Take good care of your clothes

When you come right down to it, you 
smoke for one simple reason . . . enjoy-

matter of taste. Yes. taste is what counts 
in a cigarette. And Luckies taste better. 

Two facts explain why Luckies taste 
better, First. L.S./M.F.T.- Lucky Strike 
means fine tobacco . . . light, mild, good- 
tasting tobacco. Second, Luckies are ac- 
tually made better to taste better . . . 
always round, firm, fully packed to draw 
freely and smoke evenly. 

So, for the enjoyment you get from 
better taste, and only from better taste,

The Student Newspaper 
A Public Relations Agency

Public Relations has been defined an the art of working effec- 
tively with people. It l,s the Lone of voice of an InHtltutlon. It CoIIh 
the public what the school Is doing and It tellfi the school what 
the public Is thinking. The Hludcnt ncwHpapcr In the voice of stu- 
dent expression; therefore, one 
of the best ways to get to hLu- 
dents Is by means of the kLu- 
dent newspaper. In a Htudenl 
newspaper, the students Inter- 
pret their Ideas. The school ad- 
ministrators and faculty mem- 
bers, as well a.s the public, can 
learn what the students think 
through the expressions In a 

^n the production of the news- 
paper students should have the 
opportunity to express them - 
selves freely on policies, objec- 
tives, and the school program. 
Secondly, they should have fac- 
ulty guidance but In order for 
the work to reflect their think- 
ing they should have freedom 
of expression. Each issue of the 
newspaper should be planned 
with the view to the need of 
the over-all public relations pro- 
gram as well as to the specific 
job it is to do and the audience 
for which It Is designed. There- 
fore, the students and faculty 
advisers who help to plan the 
students' newspaper should de- 
cide : '[Why Is the newspaper 
produced? Who will read the in- 
formation? What is the mes- 
sage? How will the presentation 
be made? When should it reach 
the reader? How is it to be dis- 

It Is very obvious that the 
size and type of student news- 
paper will depend upon the mes- 
sage, the reader, and the budget 
available. A careful study .should 
be made to determine the size 
and type of student newspaper. 
The copy and pictures should 
help drive home the message. 
A situation that might work well 
in one school might not work 
well in another. In order to at- 

tract a reader, It Is advl.-jnble 
to keep the arrangement simple. 

It Is good logic not to assume 
that your .student newspapers 
are doing the desired job. A con- 
tinuing evaluation program 
should be determined by the 

It Is obvious that the purpose 
of a student newspaper should 
be: (I) to Inform. (2) to Inter- 
pret, 13) to promote, and (4) to 
record, A staff should always 
endeavor- to put Its best foot for- 
ward when Issuing the official 
student publication. 

The student newspaper often 
provides the first point of con- 
tact with people who may be- 
come Important constituents of 
the school. The appearance of 
format, makeup, and content es- 
tablish an image of the school 
represented. In many Instances 
the student newspapers are the 
official envoys of the school for 
many who are already constitu- 
ents. It should be remembered 
that the student body says in

The themc! "Man's Right to 
Knowlctlge and the Free Use 
Tliereof." will emphasize the 
Idea of some of the media 
tlu-ough which man expresses 
hhnseif. We can consider the 
radio as one of the media for 
expiesslng man's knowledge. 
Through the Influence of the 
speaker's voice, stressing force- 
ful iierslstlng ideas, one can cre- 
ate Interest in Important topics. 
Interest In the goln of social 
and political knowledge Is large- 
ly contributed to our society 
by the newspapers and maga- 

One of the most recent con- 
tributions to free expression Is 
television; this column would be 
Incomplete without Including It. 
Television may be considered as 
a combination of methods used 
by the radio, newspapers and 
magazines with the addition of 
expressions through pictures. 
We can see that man's right 

to gain knowledge Is found 
aboundantly In our democratic 
form of government. A govern- 
ment by the people and for the 
people can and will be supported 
by the motivation received from 
the radio announcers, the picto- 
rial expressions and the hard 
work of a writer. The urge to 
defend and protect our right to 
knowledge and the free use 
thereof can never be cast aside. 
It will enrich every aspect of 
life, broaden our knowledge, 
light up unknown avenues of 
thought and discover new capa- 
(Illes for living and growing In 
a free society. 

The youth of today will be 
tomorrow's leaders, politicians, 
teachers, lawyers doctors and 
clergymen. Youth should begin 
Immediately to develop creative 
thinking and Interest In work- 
ing out scientific methods for 
.s(>lvlng problems. 

"Man's Right to Knowledge 
and the Free Use Thereof" may 
be considered as the foundation 
of tomorrow's achievements and 
problems. You as students are 
the priceless few who enjoy the 
freedom of a democracy. Think 
It through! 

Keynotes to Success 



Lois Fal.-^on '54 

The way to success in any- 
thing Is always an upward climb, 
the down grade is always a fiat 
failure. In considering this mat- 
ter, It will be well to remen\ber 
and bear constantly In mind, 
that it Is easier to slide down- 
hill than It Is to climb up. 

Character, education, Industry 
and wealth are the successive 
stages on the road to success 
and they follow in tlielr regular 

Character belongs to every 
man Individually and can not 
be copied from another. I do not 
know what character Is; I know 
only that it accomplishes results. 
Natural probity and Insight Into 
what you are doing — your trade, 
business or occupation, a.e the 
factors that compose character. 
Character differs from reputa- 
tion In that a man may have a 
bad reputation and still possess 
a good character. 
Education goes with character 

and means uiore than learning 
or mere knowing. It means ca- 
pacity and ability to utilize what 
you know. 

Industry means diligence in 
developing character and utiliz- 
ing education for all they are 
worth. "The hand of the diligent 
maketh rich." said Solomon. He 
also said. "The diligent gaineth 

Wealth comes through the ob- 
servance of the foregoing and 
certain things which sliould be 
added. For instance — to become 
Industrious you must give your- 
self and your fellowman a fair 
exchange of what you receive; 
you must watch your Intellec- 
tual, spiritual and worldly wel- 

Progressive men must seek op- 
portunity which does not come 
of Itself and which was denied 
them In the past. You must 
make yourself, and follow high 

The Making of

A sobering Influence Is being 
exerted by veterans on campus- 
es throughout the country. 
These thinking men and women 
arc unwilling to accept "author- 
itative" views. They are more 
Inquiring, more Inquisitive, and 
more practical In their approach 
to life and its problems. Accord- 
ingly, faculty members have 
been forced to meet these "new" 
individuals. No longer Is the "es- 
tablished" professor able to lec- 
ture from ragged, dog-eared, yel- 
lowed notes which went unchal- 
lenged by pre-war students. The 
Instructor has been forced to 
publish a new edition. This situ- 
ation, of course, does not exist 
at S.S.C; but I assure you that 
It has been very much In evi- 
dence at other Institutions. 

What is a veteran? Webster 
reports that the word has come 
to us from the Latin veteranus, 
meaning "old," with the Influ- 
ence of the Greek etos, meaning 
"years," Hence, a consideration 
of the combination presents no 
difficulty in our arriving at the 
concept that a veteran is one 
who has had long experience, 
and who, because of that experi- 
ence, has become seasoned in 
the occupation under considera- 

Let us consider some of the 
travel experiences which have 
been provided our veterans, I in- 
vite you to consider with me a 
Negro serviceman who Is being 
drafted from Savannah, Geor- 
gia. Imagine that he is head- 
ing northward, via rail. 

Washington. D, C. the nations 
capital, is on the Itinerary, 
Upon arriving In Union Station. 
he saw the building of which 
he had seen so many pictures. 
There It was! The Capitol was 
brightly lighted, and it assumed 
the role of a beacon guiding aU 
who would seek its refuge. Our 
serviceman walked toward the 
Capitol, and It did supply a last- 
ing memory. He recalled, from 
his American history at Beach 
High School, some facts con- 
cerning the development of our 
government. His mind went back 
to 1776. The Second Continental 
Congress was meeting in Inde- 
pendence Hall, in Philadelphia, 
The Declaration of Independ- 
ence, for the first time in his 
life, became vividly alive. Audi- 
bly he muttered meaningfully: 
When in the course of human 
events it becomes necessary for 
one people to dissolve the po- 
litical bands which have con- 
nected Ihem with another , , 
Indeed he was pleased with him- 
self- It was readily apparent that 
American history is not a flU-in 
course; It Is vital, practical, and 
inspiring. He had frenuently 
confused this great docvment 
with the Preamble to the Con- 
stitution. They were now clearly 
separable. Again, his mind was 
focused on Philadelphia. This 
time the year was 1787; the oc- 
casion was the Constitutional 
Convention; George Washington 
was presiding. Our Negro ser- 
viceman spoke with all the sin- 
cerity which was his: We the 
people of the United States, in 
order to form a more perfect 
union, establisli justice, insure 
domestic tranquility, provide for 
the common defence, promote 
tlie general welfare and secure 
the blessings of liberty to our- 
selves and our posterity, do or- 
dain and establish this consti- 
tution for the United States of 
America. He looked around him; 
he saw the implementation of 
the Constitution There was the 
Lincoln Monument, the Wash-

Creative Tributes 


Armanda Cooper '55 

While thinking of those who are 
about to bid our dear old Alma Mater 
adieu and enter into various fields of 
labor, I thought thai I would express 
my sincere hope for them a successful 
and prosperous future throu-gh the let- 
ters of the phrase, "Happy Easter." 

Have a heart that is pure, and 

Appearance that is pleasing. 

Patience where children are con- 
cerned and 

Politeness in speech and action. 

You are a guide that youth will 

Elevate good moral standards by 
being an example. 

Always reveal the smile and hide 
the frown. 

Sincerity is what you may add. 

Teaching is what you multiply. 

Envy is poisonous, you must sub- 

Respect for yourself and others 
will be divided. 

With these thoughts ever present in 
your mind, they will eventually be 
transmitted lo the heart and soul. Then 
surely your profession teill be more 
meaningfitf to you, to those you teach 
and to the community.

Organization Highlights 

—Here's To Veterans 

This is the turn of the quar- 
ter and the veterans' club would 
like to take this opportunity to 
acquaint itself with all new vet- 
erans. Join your club, men!! 

We would like to take this 
time to thank Dr. V, W. Stone 
for appearing as principal speak- 
er and guest of honor on the 
Veterans' Club program on Feb- 
ruary 18. 1954- We believe that 
Dr. Stone related very interest- 
ingly the fine qualities and fac- 
tors that come together to make 
a veteran the man that he is. 
We hold that we had top choice 
in this person, and we are very 
grateful for having been able to 
secure his services. Our hat is 
off, too, to Miss Hermenia Mob- 
ley for her very fine rendition 
which contributed so much to 
the character of our program. 

The Veterans' Club observed 
Washington's Birthday at the 
V.F.W.'s Van Ellison post in Sa- 
vannah, Georgia. The occasion 
was a huge success; final plans 
were formulated for the Savan- 
nah State College Veterans' Loan 
Association. Veterans are here- 
by notified that the Veterans' 
Loan Association is now in ef- 
fect with comparable assets.

Fraternity News 

The Kappas' Third Annual Va- 
riety Revue will be presented on 

April 21. 1954, at 7;30 P.M. in 
Meldrim Auditorium. The par- 
ticipants for the Revue have 
been contacted and looking over 
the probable program, it appears 
that the Kappas have gone to a 
great extent to present the best 
entertainment ever presented on 
the campus. 

The brothers of Kappa Alpha 
Psi have chosen various young 
ladies who are competing for 
that glorious title of "Kappa 
Sweetheart, 1954-55." The broth- 
ers are very proud of these young 
ladies that they are sponsoring 
in the contest and each broth- 
er is working hard so that his 
contestant will wear the crown. 
The contestants are; Misses Lois 
Cone, Hazel Harris, Dorothy 
Heath, Genevieve Holmes, Sarah 
Howard. Virginia Sheffield, Do- 
ris Singleton and Vivian Wise. 

The Kappas' Greek - letter 
Scholastic Achievement trophy 
will be presented to the Greek- 
letter organization having the 
highest cumulative average for 
the past three quarters. This 
award will be presented during 
the Kappas' Annual Guide-Right 
Ceremonies in April. Last year 
the trophy was won by the Sig- 
ma Gamma Rho Sorority. All 
Greek-letter organizations are 
urged to submit a complete ros- 
ter to the Office of the Regis- 
trar by April 1, 1954. 

The Days 
We Celebrate 


Have you ever wondered just 
what provoked certain holidays 
that are observed during the 12 
months In a year — year In and 
year out? Rarely does a month 
pass which does not bring forth 
a holiday, feast, festival, or an- 
niversary for someone. All of 
those spring fion\ some signifi- 
cant event which dates back Into 
the depths of history. 

During the month of March, 
the I7th day Is set aside as St. 
Patrick's day. St. Patrick, the 
patron saint of Ireland, has been 
honored and the anniversary of 
his death has been celebrated in 
America from very early tluics. 
This has become such a well-es- 
tablished and joyous occasion 
that even those who cannot 
claim Irish ancestry Join In 
"wearin' o" the green" and pay- 
ing respect to the Immortal 

The 21st day of March gives 
us a change In seasons and the 
first day of beautiful spring. 
This is the day of the vernal 
equinox, the point at which the 
center of the sun moves across 
the celestial equator from south 
to north, This marks the begin- 
ning of spring In the northern 
hemisphere. The word "equi- 
nox," from the Latin for equal 
night, signifies the time of the 
year when day and night ai'c 
equal. September 22 brings forth 
the Autumnal equinox and the 
same procedure holds true for It. 
April 1st is a day to which all 
of us look forward; It Is a day 
set apart as a time when it Is 
permissible to play harmless 
tricks upon friends and neigh- 
bors. The impression prevails 
that the custom has something 
to do with the observance of the 
spring equinox. It is of uncer- 
tain origin, but it probably had 
its beginning In France about 

Easter is celebrated on April 
18th this year. It is the princi- 
pal feast of the ecclesiastical 
year. It Is now celebrated on the 
Sunday after the first full moon 
following the spring equinox. 
Consequently, Easter moves be- 
tween March 22 and April 25. 
From 1916-1965 it occurs forty 
times In April and ten times in 

These days become more sig- 
nificant in our lives when we 
know their origins and history. 
The above mentioned are just a 
few of the "special days" and 
they have been presented main- 
ly because they are celebrations 
we have just observed and oth- 
ers which we anticipate in the 
near future.

'The Velvet Glove' A Great Success 

The Suvunniih State Dranuitlc 
Group presented a piny. "The 
Velvet Glove," by Ro.somary Ca- 
sey, which kept the capacity au- 
dience spoil-bound. The play was 
presented on March 11, 1064. In 
connection with Religious Em- 
l)hasl.s Week and certainly en- 
hanced the success of the ac- 
tivities for the religious program. 

"The Volet Glove" Is ii comedy 
In throe acts and won first prl/e 
In a play contest held by the 
Catholic organization known a.s 
"The Christophers." The story 
concerns a young, male, history 
teacher in convent school, who 
Is about to be fired because a 
rich contributor to the church 
objects t,o his liberal views; fi- 
nally, the young radical Is recon- 
:idered because an oven wealth- 
ier lady refuses to make her 
Iiledged contribution unless he 
Is taken back. 

The characters displayed the 
professional touch as they de- 

|)lrtod the pleasures and sor- 
rows of .spiritual life. There was 
an undcrstandlngly sympathet- 
ic vindertonc that was Instru- 
mental In making the pluy a 
tremendous success.

When you conie right down to it, you 
smoke for one simple reason . . . enjoy- 
ment. And smoking enjoyment is all a 
matter of taste. Yes, taste is what counts 
in a cigarette. And Luckies taste better. 

Two facts explain why Luckies taste 
better. First, L.S./M.F.T.- Lucky Strike 
means fine tobacco . . . light, mild, good- 
tasting tobacco. Second, Luckies are ac- 
tually made better to taste better . . . 
always round, firm, fully packed to draw 
freely and smoke evenly. 

So, for the enjoyment you get from 
better taste, and only from better taste. 
Be Happy — Go Lucky. Get a pack or a

What's Ahead for Business 

(Radio Panel) 

On Saturday, May 1, 1054. 
three outstanding faculty mem- 
bers of S.S.C, were heard In a 
panel discussion on local Radio 
Station WSAV, an NBC outlet, 
The topic, "What's Ahead for 
Bu.slncss — Pi'osperlty or Reces- 
sion?." was discussed expertly by 
Dr. R, Grann Lloyd, director of 
the monthly radio hroudcast. 
Dr. Calvin L, Klah, and Dr. Ver- 
non W. Stone. 

The pivotal date Was recog- 
nl/od as mid- 1953, when the Ko- 
rean War wQ.s abruptly brought 
to a halt, Business activity of 
the first few months of 1954 was 
related to the 1953 base period. 
Some Indexes which wcic ob- 
served to have declined are em- 
ployment, gross national |)rod- 
uct, national Income, spendable 
Income, basic living costs, wales 
In general, new orders. Industrial 
production, money In circula- 
tion, government expenditures, 
and Imports. Selected economic 
barometers which showed an 
advance are construction, gov- 
ernment deficit. bu-Hlness expen- 
diture for plant and equipment, 
exports, stock market values, 
wholesale and retail prices, util- 
ity sales and earnings, and per- 
sonal Income, 

The discussion showed the 
full-employment characteristic 
of prosperity to be In existence, 
with substantial improvement In 
view. A decreased spending for 

consumer and prodvictlon woods 
wns recognl/ed. and the possi- 
bility of Its rurnlshlng the 
groundwork for the recessionary

analy/.ed and evaluated, good 
times are iiredlctod by the ex-

onilsLs, Dr, Lloyd and Dr. Stone 
demonstrated optimism and 
agreed une{|ulvncally with that 
consensuH. Dr. Klah, on the 
other hand, registered pesslm-

observe more convincing evi- 
dence of prosperity.

Growth and Development 

Duilni; Ihc i);i;.l rciil iiilrs, wv 
have nijscrvcd Uu- IniTfiislnn 
number of students passing 
through the halls of collcBes and 
universities. These men and 
women have ben cultivated like 
the soil of the earth, 

Romonibeving a person as a 
freshuian Is dirrerent froui the 
nieiiiory of a graduating senior. 

As a freshman, a person nuiy- 
be considered as a seed being 
planted into the earth that It 
nuiy have a chance for growth, 
The student then enters the 
sophomore and Junior years In 
order to continue In physical, 
social, religious und mental 
growth, and he will begin to de- 
velop a sound set of values that 
will aid In his life's work. 

The tempo of eliange today 
Is a challenge to every individual 
to undersland lilmscK and his 
world about him. lie must de- 
velop the iiower to maintain 
harmony between Inner and 
outer forces, The college student 
Is develoi)lnR Into a potential 
leader as well as a follower In 
the world; he has first hand In- 
formal I'jn relative to responsi- 
bilities and problems of living 
today. He has a chance of be- 
coming a creative citizen pre- 
pared to eope Intelligently with 
new conditions as they arise. 
Growth and development in col- 
lege are essential fuundallons for 

(itl/cnsliip that Is 
lU'cessary to succesful living be- 
yond the college years. 

The three major areas in 
which one should grow and de- 
veloi) for the betterment of him- 
self and humanity are: Sound 
IMiiiosuphy of Life. Through a 
college career one acquires tech- 
niques, ijolnts of view and In- 
formation, But If a college stu- 
dent Is to develop to his fullest 
capacity for the enrichment of 
his phlllsophy, he should attain 
something more. He should 
strive for a desired way of life 
and develop a system of values 
that maybe willfully believed in 
and accepted by the Individual. 
A Pleasing Personality. Per- 
sonality Is not developed merely 
by going to college or by taking 
lessons in how to gain friends, 
A healthy personality is a com- 
plex structure, and cannot be 
glibly achieved. An effective de- 
velopment of personality may be 
obtained by the improvement of 
the sum total of habits that one 
has formed. Finally, Knowledge 
and Skill. In order to progress 
successfully In life, one must 
have ability along with a wide 
scope of knowledge that can be 
applied to everyday living. Any 
goal can be attained if one is 
Industrious, ambitious, and skill-

School Is Never Out 

I A Reporter's Views on

As the school year comes to

Commencement does not just 
mean the long processions and 
the series of exercises that go 
to make up the commencement 
activities. Commencement has a 
more significant meaning. Let 
us carefully analyze the word 
and see what it really means. 
Commencement comes from the 
Latin word commence which 
means to begin; therefore, when 
one graduates he has just be- 

School is never out. After 
commencement then what? 
Some will enter the various uni- 
versities where they will secure 
education that leads to an even 
higher degree. Some will take 

jobs and will profit from some- 
thing tliat they have never ex- 
perienced before. Some will en- 
ter the various branches of serv- 
ice; there, too, they will have 
new experiences. No matter 
what field one may enter, one 
will still undergo some form of 

Our education began when we 
were put into this world several 
years ago. It Is like being at 
the foot of a ladder, this ladder 
is the ladder of life and can 
only be climbed step by step. 
Many times while one is climb- 
ing, he faces numerous obstacles, 
but if the determination is great 
enough, the obstacles are soon 
east aside. 

As one reaches the top of the 
ladder, he will be able to seek 
out his future. As for our grad- 
uates, the stage was set, and 
they were the players. They 
must have acted well their part5, 
for they will have gone another 
step on the ladder of life on 
June 2nd.

American people. The commit- 
tee hearings have been success- 
ful only In lowering the Ameri- 
can prestige abroad. 

The question that has arisen In 
my mind Is whether the legisla- 
tive body Is going beyond Its 
limitations or not. 
Supreme Court Makes History — 

The recent ruling of the Su- 
preme Court outlawing segrega- 
tion In public schools has pro- 
voked much discussion. The 
south in particular, has taken 
the ruling cautiously and calmly 
except for Georgia's governor, 
Herman Talmadge, who stated 
that the ruling by the head 
court has reduced the Constitu- 
tion to a mere 'scrap of paper'. 
World Record Set— 

The recent world mile record 
set by Roger Bannister ( time 
3:59,4), English medical student, 
has broken the legendary 4:00 
mile. Even after setting a world 
record. Bannister said that his 
greatest ambition is to beat 
America's Wes Santee. 
Crilicism — 

I would like to criticize the 
administration and the kind of 
support that has been given to 
Secretary Stevens in the commit- 
tee hearings. With the under- 
standing that the secretary of 
army Is under the Department, of 
Defense, a cabinet office, It 
seems altogether fitting that the 
executive branch would defend 
the person concerned since these 
offices are under its jurisdiction. 
Much to my regret. I would like 
to say that the executive branch 
has not been outspoken enough

Old and New 

You aif now one of the ap- 
proximately 300,000 college stu- 
dents who received their first 
degree this year. Your degree 
granted you so recently records 
the arduous hours, the credits, 
and the months in residence. 
The world lins yet to measure 
your education as your Alma 
Mater has your schooling. What 
will count in what you have 
learned is what you can do with 
your knowledge. America needs 
the best minds in positions of 
leadership today — and your 
community will look toward you 
for this guidance. Be prepared 
and worthy of this confidence. 
No better means of continued 
growth can be found than read- 
ing — reading that has a purpose 
or rather a succession of pur- 
poses. Many of you who have 
been guided in what to read and 
when to read, have solemnly de- 
clared that 'come commence- 
ment' you won't look at anotlier 
book for eons and eons. Happily 
for you and for your fellowman, 
it won't be too long before you 
will miss the companionship of 
books — for they do help supply 
fuel for the universal human 
urge to understand. So from time 
to time, when you return to 
your books, cheek the scope of 
your reading, tor there must be 
a certain rounding out of litera- 
ture as a whole if breadth of 
background is to be developed. 
Try a book that you happen to 
see on the shelves of your li- 
brary or bookstore, or a title 
that someone recommends. 

Some of the outstanding lead- 
ers in the civic, educational, re- 
ligious and business hfe of Sa-

A Profile of a Senior 

Sadie B Carter, '55 
Miss Lillle Mae Jackson, commonly called "Lil", hails from 
Savannah. Georgia. She is a graduating senior in the division of 
Arts and Sciences with a major in Mathematics and a minor in 
General Science. 

Miss Jackson has made an enviable record here as a student 
leader. She is a member of Delta 
Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and 
has been recording secretary for 
two years. She is also a member 
of Alpha Kappa Mu, Beta Kappa 
Chi Scientific Honor Society. Fu- 
ture Teachers of America, and 
the Tiger's Roar. 

Miss Jackson represented the 
college In various conferences. 
Among them are: The Fifteenth 
National Convention of Alpha 
Kappa Mu which was held at Ar- 
kansas AMAN College, Pine 
Bluff, Arkansas; the First Re- 
gional meeting of Region I. 
Johnson C. Smith University, 
Charlotte, N. C, and the Second 
Regional meeting at Bennett 
College, Greensboro, N. C. 

"Lll's" phylosophy of life has 
facilitated her meeting people. 
She believes that one should live 
in the present and not wait for 
tomorrow. . . . "Live each day 
fidl and tomorrow and yesterday 
will automatically fall in line." 

Miss Jackson won the titles of 
"Miss Mathematics" 1951. Miss 
Delta 1953, and the Campus 
Community Club award of 1953. 

"Lil" said that Savannah State 


had developed her personality 
through opportunities offered Its 
students in "public relations." 
She feels academic pursuits only 
touch part of the person, but 
conferences and "public rela- 
tions" afford a much broader 
base for development.

A Senior's Message 

Dorothy Mae Bess, '54 
There is inexpressible joy in 
being a senior; so many hopes 
and ideals are collected in one's 
mind When I think of the 
status of a Senior ,it reminds 
me of one who looks back and 
then forward. A senior casts a 

backward look at his achieve- 
ments and his failures. In his 
achievements, he finds satisfac- 
tion; while in his failures, he 
sees the possibility for improve- 
ment. Looking forward, he is 
held tightly by the clutches of

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity 

The Kappa Alpha Psi Fratern- 
ity has recently promoted the 
last three of its major programs 
of the school year. Terminating 
with the Black and White Ball, 
the fraternity is proud of a suc- 
cessful year. 

The Variety show on April 23, 
with our advisor. Mr. John H. 

Camper, serving as master of 
ceremonies was enjoyed by a 
near capacity crowd in Meldrim 
Auditorium. The show gained the 
interest of talent throughout the 
campus as well as the city of Sa- 
vannah. Trophies and cups were 
given to groups or individuals 
who were deserving in the opin- 
ion of the judges. Highlighting 
the show was a short intermis- 
Eicn skit by the "clogs" who were 
about half way across the "sand" 
trying to make Kappa. 

The fraternity expanded its 
breadth with the initiation of 
six neophytes. On the night of 
April 27, the initiation of James 
Thomas, Henry Dressen, Earnest 
Hicks. Robert Jackson, Benjamin 
Graham, and Johnnie P. Jones 
was culminated in tlie form of 
a banquet with the pledges act- 
ing as hosts. 

Probably the most memorable 
event of the year is the annual 
Black and White Ball sponsored 
by the Brothers of Gamma 
Chi. The tireless efforts proved 
worthy and not in vain. Every- 
one enjoyed a pleasant evening. 
The serenity of the music of Joe 
Bristow was at its best and 
stirred one's emotions. 

The Brothers are looking for- 
ward to another glorious and 
prosperous school year with the 
following newly elected officers; 
James Thomas, polemarch; Vir- 
gil Wilcher, vice polemarch; 
Robert F. Jackson, keeper of rec- 
ords: Benjamin Graham, keeper 
of exchequer; David Lurry, strat- 
egus: Ernest Hicks, historian;
