The new dean's enthusiasm about her duties and her concern for the welfare of students are probably best reflected by her philosophy that the student comes first, to view of this, she extends an invitation to students, with or without problems, to visit her office. Beneath her easy smile and her ready sense of humor is a seriousness that is contagious. With praise for her predecessor and the cooperation of students and personnel, Mrs. Piggott believes that, she as an alumna, she can be a better dean at A&T CoUege then at any other institution. ant professor of miUtary science.

President, George Stevens; vice president, Alton WaUace; corresponding secretary, Hattie KittreU; recording secretary, Jean Lisb- comb; treasurer, Raymond EngUsh; and adviser, Miss Barbara Dodd, and Captain Donald MaUoy. To use the words of Miss Dodd, adviser, the Student Government "has started with a boom." The first Proclamation of the body was REGISTER Editor Attends Workshop At U. Of Minn. WUUam Goode, editor of the REGISTER, attended a coUege publications workshop at the University of Minnesota this summer. He was the only Negro editor present. The workshop, sponsored by the University's School of JournaUsm and the Associated Collegiate Press, ran for two weeks, from June 14-25. Students represented such colleges as the U. of Mass., CathoUc U., Berry CoUege, U. of Minn., Siena College, Union College, and many more. It was an intensive session in which the editor received a chance to study the files of AU-American and first class coUegiate publications from throughout the country. He was also given the opportunity to exchange ideas with other college newspaper staff members. In addition to the workshop in the afternoons, there were "shirtsleeve" sessions in the mornings in photography, typography, and lay-out which were optional to the students. To gain experience in various aspects of the newspaper business, the students were given the foUowing assignments: to take pictures iUustrating work, play, love, hate, anger, and others. The students attended and reported on a speech by Louis Lomax, the Negro author, and they made a photo scrapbook and did newspaper lay-out. However, the workshop was not all work. There were jazz sessions on campus as well as dances, plays, and concerts; and there were recreation areas for table tennis and pool. MRS. LUCILLE J. PIGGOTT Arlene MacUn, Rawlings, Va., a rising junior in engineering physics here at A&T, has been awarded a full expense scholarship to study for one year at the University of Munich, Munich, Germany, beginning this faU. This summer she worked as a research assistant on a study of X-ray diffraction of cadmium-magnesium aUoys being conducted at A&T under support of the National Science Foundation. Here Arlene is shown working with Albert Cheek, Greensboro, and Johnnie Richardson, Farmville, N. C, both research assistants in the A&T College Department of Physics. They are shown working with a new Single Channel Analyzer, an expensive group of physics laboratory equipment which is on loan to the coUege by the Argonne National Laboratory of Argonne, Illinois. issued Saturday, September 18, to President L. C. Dowdy which, in substance, proclaimed "An Aggie on the Go Week" which encompasses the theme: Aggies on the Go for Leadership, Scholarship. The Proclamation was presented directly after the Saturday night movies and a raUy for school spirit were held in Harrison Auditorium. FoUowing the rally, George Stevens, president of the Student Government read the proclamation and led the participants by candle light to ' President Dowdy's Residence, "The Oaks." Each participating student carried a Ughted candle and sang the Alma Mater following the presentation of the Proclamation, President Dowdy responded that the event was a pleasant surprise and he hoped that the students would respond to the chaUenge offered by the Proclamation. He responded by inviting the student leaders to a "Steak Cook-Out" in the backyard of "The Oaks." INITIAL SPEECH The substance of Steven's first speech to the students at large served as an invitation to student participation and as a challenge to students' resourcefulness. He stated that the role of the student has changed since the last generation. Student involvement in local, state, national, and internatioal issues is essential for the advancement of today's youth. MAJOR CONCERN The major concerns of the Student Government for the faU semester are (1) more involvement of A&T CoUege with other coUeges in the area; (2) the introduction of "intercollegiate scholastic competition among the community colleges; (3) closer student-faculty relationship. There wiU be attempts to counter the depersonalization of students that seems to be taking place as the coUege grows larger. In order to make himself better qualified to serve as President of the Student Government, Stevens attended a summer institute for student government presidents at the University of Wisconsin. In spite of numerous helpful exper- ences, Stevens was most expressed by the power of organized students who can create such incidents as those at the University of CaU- fornia. Student government for 1965-66 promises to be progressive and an asset to A&T. The harmonious cry from advisers and officers alike is for student co-operation and participation. A&T STUDENT'S ISSUE PROCLAMATION George Stevens, Jr., center, a Greensboro, senior and president of the A&T CoUege Student Government, presents to Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy, president of the college, a proclamation caUing upon A&T students for "com- structive leadership, qualitative scholarship, and effective citizenship," during the academic year. Looking on from left, is Debra Johnson, Columbia, S. C, also a senior and "Miss A&T," for the year.
