She o&VS.^wliege VOLUME XXXVIII, No. 5 GREENSBORO, N. C. OCTOBER 14, 1966 M *The Cream of CoUege New? Comm. Decides On Downtown Homecoming Parade ON FOUNDERS' DAY McClenney, President Of St. Paul's College, To Receive 1966 Alumni Achievement Award Official notification has been sent to President Earl H. McClenney of Saint Paul's College that the General Alumni Association of his Alma Mater, the Agricultural and Technical College, has unanimously voted to present him with its 1966 Alumni Achievement award. The association's executive secretary, Ellis F. Corbett, said in the letter of notification: "You may be interested to learn that this is the first award of its kind to be presented by A&T alumni. For a number of years, we have given the annual Alumni Service Award, but the new one serves altogether another purpose, envisioned to recognize those A&T men and women who have achieved beyond the ordinary . . . "Please accept my congratulations, not only for the recognition which your fellow alumni have given you, but for the vision, ingenuity, and service you have given to mankind to reflect great credit upon the Alma Mater." The trustees of Saint Paul's elected Dr. McClenney as the third head of the 78-year-old private, Episcopal-related college in 1950. In 1954 the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws was bestowed upon Dr. McClenney by A&T College. Presentation of the plaque, emblematic of the achievement award, is to be made at the annual Founders' Day observance at A&T College on Tuesday, November 1, at 9:00 A.M., according to Mr. Corbett. Following his graduation from A&T with a Bachelor of Science degree, Dr. McClenney received a Master of Science degree from Cornell University. He has done additional study in the graduate field. Before entering A&T, he studied at Talladega (Ala.) College and the Lincoln Normal School at Marion, Ala., his place of birth. He has also done special graduate work at Pennsylvania State College. Prior to assuming his present position, he was president of Votr- hees College, Denmark, S. C, from 1947 to 1950. Dr. McClenney has served as a member of the North Carolina Interracial Commission and South Carolina Citizens Committee of the South Carolina Area Schools. He is currently serving as a member of the Virginia Advisory Committee on Schools and Colleges, vice chairman of the Association of Episcopal Colleges, Citizens Committee of the Virginia Teachers Association, and Reporter Covers Canteen From Other Points Of View By EVELYN LOUISE PARKER A number of articles have been written about the canteen from the student's view point, but we've never had the view point of the man behind the scene. In a recent interview with Mr. Wayne Talbert, manager of the canteen, and some of his co-workers, several questions were asked. What do you think of the so-called regulars in the canteen? Mr. Talbert replied, "I don't think there really are any regulars because people like service men and graduates who aren't in school always come back to the canteen. Everybody comes into the canteen at one time oj^nother." Do pw"think that the canteen serves as a hindrance to the student? Mr. Talbert replied, "I don't think it serves as a hindrance because it's a place where students can relax or play a game of chess. On Saturdays they are allowed to play a game of cards. Some of the brightest students in school come in." "The student government has had a meeting here and the English Department once held classes here. If I thought it was a hindrance to the students, I wouldn't stay open from 7:00 in the morning until 12:00 P.M." Other members of the canteen staff had this to say about this question. Naomi Campbell said, "I don't think so because it is up to them to stay or leave. No one is forcing them to stay. We are here to serve the public, not to interfere with their studies." Miss Ezzie Gore said, "It gives them some place to spend their leisure time." What advice do you have for our readers, Mr. Talbert? "It takes four years to get out of school, unless there is some specialized field or trade. I think that if they would treat the students as adults they wouldn't have any trouble out of them. With these many students there's bound to be a little disturbance at times." David Jones, seen here as he presents his night-time Jazz show — "Cool World", brings to an end another day of broadcast for radio station WANT. The station is aired at 620 on the AM ban and will operate this year on the following schedule: Monday thru Thursday from 4 until 10 . P. M., on Friday from 4 until 6 P. M., and on Sunday fromi 4 until 8 P. M. Jones is a junior industrial electronics major from Scotland Neck. of the board of directors of the Virginia Council on Human Relations. He holds membership also in the VTA, National Education Association, American Association of University Professors, Omega Psi Phi and Alpha Kappa Mu. An active laymen in the Episcopal Church, he currently is a member of the executive board of Diocese of Southern Virginia. Students Attend Phi Beta Lambda Nat'l Convention "Just the idea of having gone to New Orleans and seen the city was an educational experience in itself," said Nannie Kearney, state secretary of Phi Beta Lambda, in recollection of her trip to the annual national convention held in Louisiana. Jesse Lanier, president of the local chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, felt the divisional meeting of the "political figures" held more interest for him. "It was like a real political convention," said Jesse. "Each candidate was trying every 'trick in the book' to get as many votes as possible." (This is the collective summary presented to the local members oi Phi Beta Lambda at their recent meeting.) "The political maneuvers seemed to have been well rehearsed, yet they were believable; they were real," continued Jesse. Besides being caught up in politics, Jesse and Nannie were able to exchange ideas with business students from colleges and universities across the nation. Among those schools represented were the following: East Carolina College, Louisburg College, Cerritos Junior College, Kansas State College, Grambling College, Virginia State College, and Campbell College. The French quarters was the highlight of Jesse's and Nannie's tour of the city of New Orleans. It s.ightly amazed them to see horse-drawn carriages in this section. Still more amazing, however, was New Orleans' main street. The main street (Canal Street) has six lanes, and it is reputed to be the world's widest street. There are four lanes for automobiles and two for buses. This seemingly eliminates some of the traffic problems experienced in other cities. Jesse and Nannie were accompanied to New Orleans by Mrs. Katie Dorsett, adviser to Phi Beta Lambda and instructor of business at A&T College. Freshmen were inducted into the club, and plans for the 1966-1967 school year were introduced to them at a recent meeting. The various activities listed on the proposed program of Phi Beta Lambda include field trips, group discussions, distinguished speakers, participation in the homecoming parade, and the purchase of bicycles to be rented to students. The executive committee asks that each member support the organization wholeheartedly to make this a successful year. Bloodmobile On Campus November 8 and 9 The homecoming committee held its third and most decisive meeting on Tuesday, October 11, in the Taylor Art Gallery of Bluford Library with Mr. Jimmie I. Barber, chairman, officiating. The committee as a whole decided on a downtown route for the 1966 Homecoming Parade. Much consideration was given to ROTC units and bands who will cover the route on foot, as has been done in many previous parades. The student morale and expectant organizational reactions to the parade route was also a factor which required a great deal of consideration. At any rate, the committee unanimously agreed upon the following route: leave the campus to Market Street, continue west on Gaston Street to Elm Street, continue south on Elm Street to Washington Street, continue east on Washington Street to Davie Street, continue south on Davie to Market Street, continue east on Market Street to Pearson Street, continue north on Pearson Street to Oakmont Street, and continue on Oakmont to the stadium. Other items of interest decided upon by the committee were to place greater emphasis on alumni and student participation in the homecoming events. A special welcoming at the train station for alumni by the students and college officials is in the planning stage. Much emphasis will be placed on alumni registration and recognition, as should be the case in an event which is centered around the returning of alumni to their alma mater. The homecoming festivities will have most of the traditional activities. Included among these are a coronation ball, an alumni breakfast, a homecoming ball, the annual alumni worship service, contests in the areas of dormitory decoration, floats, campus display, and posters. Needless to say, there will be a big homecoming game when the A&T College Aggies clash with the Morgan State Bears. The halftime show for this game is a promising one. Final plans concerning time and place of previously mentioned activities will be announced in the October 21 edition of THE REGISTER. Faculty members in the Department of English meet their majors and minors during a social hour in Cooper Hall. Dept. Of English Holds Social For Majors, Minors, And Staff -r— ~2£ x x~ z~. x ±1— .. .. ... In an effort to acquaint the English majors and minors and the English faculty with each other, the Department of EngUsh held a "Get- Acquainted-Hour" in the Cooper Hall lounge last Sunday. Mrs. Carrye Hill Kelley, chairman of the social committee, presided. The activities began with an informal reception Une to familiarize the students with the faculty. Following the introduction of the faculty and the students, Mrs. Catherine Copeland, entertained the audience with her personal rendition of a vocabulary game. Because so many students express a dislike for poetry, Mrs. Kelley arranged for members of one of the humanities classes to tell the myths which inspired certain poets to write. The discussants included PhyUstine Good, Cynthia Moore, Virginia AUen, Yvette Roberts, Sandra Carlton, and Margaret Shivers. Highlighting the program was the dramatic performance of one of Paul Lawrence Dunbar's poems by Mrs. Copeland. Mr. James Wooten assisted Mrs. Copeland in her performance. Dr. W. C. Daniel, Chairman of the Department of English, gave concluding remarks. He expressed a desire to see a closer relationship between the students and faculty in the department. Refreshments were served following the activities of the evening. Health Director Reveals Plans To Improve Health Services By EULA M. BATTLE Dr. Theodore Bunch, recently named director of health services at A&T, states that he has definite plans for the improvement of health services at the coUege. His overall objective is to broaden the scope of the clinic operations and to allow for more intensive therapeutic service. To accomplish this aim, the college purchased new instruments; and even though an ample supply of drugs was in the infirmary medicine chest, Dr. Bunch said, "Everyone has his own preference; therefore, I have made some sub stitutions and ordered some new drugs." Continuing, he stated, "I am alarmed at the prevalence of certain preventable diseases on campus." He mentioned several that plague not only A&T but other college campuses as well. To aUevi- ate this problem on A&T's campus,' Dr. Bunch proposes to institute seminars, discussion groups, ana films. These plans, however, will not materiaUze until the beginning of November. Dr. Bunch said that each student, interested in his own health, sho- Id (CONTINUED ON PAGE 5)
