Celebrates North Carolina Dietetics Week By EULA M. BATTLE "For more than twelve years, my career in dietetics has been both rewarding and challenging," stated Mrs. E. K. Vereen, instructor of institutional management at A&T CoUege, during a recent celebration of Dietetics Week. "I have served more than 20,160,000 meals at approximately one dollar per day," she said. Students in the Department of Home Economics were also enthusiastic about the celebration of Dietetics Week. They eagerly gave their viewpoints concerning the field of dietetics. While some emphasized the opportunity it gives one to work with others, many concerned themselves with the salary range - $6,000 per year in small hospitals to $12,000 in large institutions. Contrary to popular beUef, dietetics does offer numerous opportunities for men who seem to steer away from the profession. Jerry L. Friday, however, has decided to face this career squarely. Recently, he became the first man to apply to a program for dietitians sponsored by the Air Force. If Friday's appUcation is accepted, he wiU begin his internship in September 1966. Lionel M. Johnson, a sophomore institutional management major, also recognizes the opportunities for men in the field of dietetics. Besides the prospect of "good money", Johnson likes to be around food and people. "I'm only a sophomore, but already I am aware of the many opportunities and experiences in the field of dietetics," states Phyllis Smith. "Careers in dietetics are challenging; the salary is increasing, and the work load is becoming Ughter." "The opportunity for advancement is great!" according to Jean Lipscomb, a member of the class of '68. Lessie Walters, a senior, believes that people "who like to work with others" would find institutional management a most &¥.& "The Cream of CoUege News* VOLUME XXXVII, No. 26 GREENSBORO, N. C.

Institutional management wiU give her these things plus good advancement opportunities. "The field of dietetics is really booming," says Ella Coleman. "Who Knows? We might even be needed on the moon in the near future." Odessie Costen looks beyond the present as she makes the foUowing statement: "As we look into space, we can see the dietitian developing good nutritious food for space travelers." Dietetics, as a career, offers many rewarding challenges. It includes the direction of purchase, preparation, and service of food for patients and personnel in institutions. As a teacher, the dietitian can be utiUzed in training and counseling personnel and instructing patients. He may also serve as a consultant on a regional or a nationwide basis. June Graduates Are To Be Given GRE On April 16 On Saturday, AprU 16, 1966, in the F. D. Bluford Library from 8:30 A. M. to 12:00 noon, and from 1:00 P.M. to 4:30 P. M., the Graduate Record Examinations wiU be administered to all prospective June graduating seniors who have not previously taken the tests. The examinations stress accuracy more than speed. Particular attention is given to such objectives as understanding of fundamental terms and concepts; acquaintance with basic facts and trends; understanding of cause-and-effect relationships; abUity to draw warranted conclusions; ability to com* pare and contrast points of view; and the abUity to understand the bases for critical judgments and (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) 'This is just the first step," said Mrs. Bessie A. McAllister of Greensboro, the mother of five, who last week received a certificate for having completed the 12- week course in nurse's aid in the A&T College Project UpUft. She was a member of a class of 41-heads of famiUes, educationaUy deprived, who during the past three months had participated in one of several vocational retraining programs operated at the coUege under the sponsorship of the Manpower, Development and Training Act, and the Office of Manpower, Automation and Training, Washington, D. C. It was graduation day for three of the trainee programs in nurse's aid, clothing alteration and custodian-janitor. Other programs, requiring more time, including carpentry, auto mechanics, auto body repair, bricklaying and cooking, wiU continue for 14 additional weeks. Mrs. McAUister wishes to become a professional nurse and, according to her, "wUl never be satisfied with anything less." The idea of becoming a nurse first came to her when she was a pa ss tient for five years in a tuberculosis sanitorium. "I saw there," she said, "the great need for nurses and the part they play in restoring human beings to health." Her case was arrested and she returned home to her famUy abuot a year ago. Mrs. McAllister readily admits that she has been highly motivated by her experiences during the past few weeks and hopes to return to school to be trained for a professional career in nursing. Although she has not completed the full high school course, Mrs. McAllister believes that her studies and reading whUe in the sanitorium have prepared her for a high school equivalence examination. DR. SAMUEL D. PROCTOR Dr. S. D. Proctor Writes New Book On Negro Youth Where is the young Negro headed? What will come after the demonstrations, the sit-ins, the sermons and legislation? Dr. Samuel D. Proctor in his new book "The Young Negro in America, 1960- 1980" (Association Press; $3.95; May 27) appraises the chances of his race to make good the threats and promises of these desperate — and hopeful — years that began with the jaiUng of Negro college students in 1960. How far, Dr. Proctor asks, will the young Negro seek to go by 1980? What will it require on his part? How prepared is he to pay the price? What wUl it require of business, government, religion, education, and other social institutions? WiU the response be adequate? His answer to these questions can contribute to a framework for the new democracy in America which he and all men of goodwill envision. "The Young Negro in America, 1960-1980" is about: 1. The Emergence of the Young Negro, 00 The bid for a new emancipation . . . The influence of earlier demonstrations . . . The adult Negro community in (CONTINUED ON PAGE 3) Another "graduate" had kind words for Project UpUft. "With the privUeges we have today, it is no need to say that we cannot make it," said Mrs. Gertrude Gray, also of Greensboro, who completed the course m Custodian-Janitor trainee. He spoke at the graduation program, representing the entire class. These two probably expressed the opinion of a majority of the trainees, many of whom were receiving a certificate for the first time in their Uves, but more important, new confidence, new hope and a new view on Ufe, itself. Three of the trainees were smgled out for special recognition for having exceUed in the studies. SEE PICTURE ON PAGE 3 Dr. Henry Frye Announces Plans To Run For N. C. Legislature Henry E.
