Program Offers Masters In Nutrition A new graduate program, leading to the degree of master of science in foods and nutrition, is to be offered at A&T CoUege beginning with the fall semester in September.

To qualify for the degree, the student is to be required to complete 30-semester hours of credit, and to include the writing of a thesis. Besides the new degree, A&T College offers, through its Graduate School, the foUowing: Master of Science in Chemistry and Master of Science in Education, with concentrations in the industrial arts, agricultural education, guidance and counseling, school administration, chemistry, biology, social sciences, history, EngUsh and mathematics. Dean Announces Emergency Exits For Hodgin Hall "Our experience of Monday, March 7, with the bomb scare reveals the need for a predetermined method by which Hodgin HaU can be evacuated," states Dr. Arthur F. Jackson, dean of the School of Education and General Studies. Members of the faculty, students, and staff members should be aware of the method being established by Dean Jackson to avoid confusion and/or injury.

The front door of Hodgin facing Bluford Library wiU be used by persons on the first floor. AU persons on the second floor will exit by using the stairway and the door nearest Curtis Hall. The stairway and door adjacent to Market Street will be used by persons on the third floor. This method of evacuation should be kept in mind. Practical use wiU enable aU persons to evacuate the building both safely and rapidly. A&T Choir Appears In Spring Concert Sunday, March 20 Lt. Col. Harold L. Lanier, professor of mUitary science, presents the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star to the parents of the late Lt. William E Davis, Jr., a 1964 graduate of A&T College. Lt Davis, kUled in action in Viet Nam in December, was also inducted into the newly-dedicated Army ROTC Hall of Fame. By STANLEY JOHNSON The choir wiU give its annual spring concert, March 20, at 3 P.M. in the Richard B. Harrison Auditorium. This concert precedes the annual tour taken by the choir, which is to be from April 21 through April 28. The choir is under the direction of Mr. Howard Pearsall, chairman of the Department of Music. The featured singers will be Shirley Debose, Winter Haven, Florida; Kaye SpruiU, Long Island, New York; Thomas Brewer, AsheviUe; Charles Bullock, Henderson; Evander Gilmer and Urn- stead McAdoo, both of Greensboro. The program is divided into three sections. The first section includes a variety of unusual pieces. The first selection is "Kyrie," an African Mass by Norman Luboff. The second section is centered around music about nature such as Deems Taylor's "Waters Ripple and Flow" and Sven Lekberg's "Rain Song." This section features Purple Heart Highlights Military Ceremony By PATRICIA LANIER The Army Reserve Officers Training Corps of the Agricultural and Technical CoUege held a military ceremony on March 10 to award posthumously the "Purple Heart" and "Bronze Star" medals to the parents of Second Lieutenant William E. Davis, Jr. The ceremony was actually held for a dual purpose; the other being the HaU of Fame Dedication which also featured Lieutenant Davis. Second Lieutenant William E. Davis received his commission from the Army upon graduation on June of 1964, from A&T. He was a Sociology major who was working as a counselor at Cherry Youth Center, Goldsboro, North CaroUna at the time of his induction in the Army. As Lt. Col. Harold Lanier, professor of mUitary science, presented the Davis Family with the outstanding merits of achievement Lieutenant Davis received for services "above and beyond the call of duty," Lt. Col. Herbert Parker, assistant professor of military science, read the citations presented by Headquarters Department of the Army, Washington, D. C. Lieutenant Davis received the "Purple Heart" for the wounds he received in action in Vietnam on December 10, 1965. He received the "Bronze Star" for his display of outstanding heroism while serving as Platoon Leader on a "Search and Destroy" operation in the vicinity of Di-an Vietnam. Lieutenant Davis and his com pany were in the midst of intense fire when Davis took it upon him- seU to crawl within 15 meters of the deadly shelling by an estimated 20 Viet Cong. He unsuccessfully threw one grenade failing to neutralize the bunker. Upon his second attempt, Davis crawled closer to the range of fire and raised to throw the grenade only to be struck down immediately with a shower of buUets kiUing him. Davis was commended for his outstanding display of aggressiveness and devotion to duty and personal bravery keeping with the finest tradition of MiUtary Service by the United States Army in receiving two of the most distinguished medals to be awarded to a soldier. The HaU of Fame Dedication, which also featured Davis, marked the beginning of a memorable event. The Hall of Fame was established to honor those officer graduates who have contributed outstanding achievements in the enhancement of the ROTC Program and image of the Agricultural and Technical CoUege whUe on active duty. There are two plaques hanging in Campbell Hall in dedication to these outstanding officers. One is engraved with the following inscription — "Dedicated to the Army ROTC Graduate Officers of this institution whose scholastic performance at their Branch Orientation Schools has contributed to a better image of A&T College." The following names are included thus far: William H. Hardy, 1954; Charles D. Bussey, 1955; Paul M. McGuire, 1958; WiUiam T. Water- mann, 1959; George A. Waters, 1960; Matthew Minnicks, 1961; Chapin Horton, 1962; Ernest L. Simmons, 1963; Ethbert S. Carr, Jr., 1964. The only outstanding Army RO TC Graduate officer who performed scholastic achievement at his Branch School present at the ceremony was Charles D. Bussey who is a Major on active duty. He is serving as professor of military science of aU high schools with an ROTC Program in Indianapolis, Indiana. The second plaque is inscribed "Dedicated to the Army Officer Graduates of the A&T College of North Carolina who have distinguished themselves by outstanding performances of duty in the service of their country." There are but two names on this plaque up to this point — WUUam E. Davis, Jr., 1964; WUliam B. Neal, 1950. The two plaques that are inscribed with the merits of outstanding achievements mentioned above, along with portraits of the persons installed, will be permanently affixed in CampbeU HaU. Tutorial Program Offers Help To Elementary And High School Students A Tutoring Program known as GUTS — The Greensboro United Tutorial Services — has been offering help to elementary, junior high school, and high school students who wish to be tutored in any subject. Students who participate in GUTS as tutors come from many of the coUeges and universities in the Greensboro area. The coUege students meet with their individual "tutees" for two hour sessions once a week in one of several tutoring sites in the community. Teaching in subjects of their own interest, the tutors most often help students who are having difficulty with their reading skills; other popular subjects are social studies, mathematics and science. GUTS was established because of some major educational problems existing in the Greensboro Public Schools. The reading levels of these students do not measure up to those in other communities. GUTS is attempting to combat these problems through a one-to- one tutor-tutee relationship. GUTS offers an opportunity for college and elementary, junior high school, high school students of different backgrounds to get together for their mutual advantage. YOU are welcome to participate as a tutor. It can be discouraging at times, but it also has proved to be an exciting and rewarding experience for many tutors and "tutees."

Confab Seven weeks of hard work, practiced skills, and elimination have produced the 1966 Aggie Livestock Judging team. The four top men were singled out Friday afternoon and at that time started on the final preparations for the March 24 and 25 Southern Regionals in Normal, Alabama. During the elimination period, fourteen classes of livestock were judged. The highest possible score for any one student within this period was 1400 points. Eugene Jones of Mebane was the top ranking man in the campus contest with 1095 points and David Spaulding of Clarkton ran second with 1080 points. Jones and Spaulding are sophomores majoring in agricultural education. Johnnie Jones, senior agronomy major of Trenton and a third year veteran traveling with the team, is holding the third position with 1035 points. Holding weU in fourth place and believed to be one of the great sparks for the regionals is Lincoln Blanding, sophomore, agricultural economics major of Manning, South Carolina. He achieved 1035 points locaUy. The team for this season, as seen by others that participated, is one of the strongest to represent the Animal Industry Department at the regionals.
