Seeks To Prepare Students For April 15th FSEE Examination "We are aiming at the April 15 test date. That is our target," said Dr. T. Mahaffey, chairman of the Federal Service Entrance Fxami- nation Committee (FSEE). In seeking to encourage more students to prepare successfully for the FSEE, the coordinating committee proposes to adequately publicize the FSEE, to organize and supervise FSEE — oriented study. Class will be held on Monday, March 13 at 4 o'clock in Graham 101. Civil Service Examinations are open to all citizens of the United States; therefore, all interested students are urged to be present at this meeting. Applications for the April 15 examination, must be filed by March 15, and Dr. Mahaffey will have applications available for each student at the March 13 meeting; he will be responsible for mailing all applications. The FSEE is for positions at the entrance and trainee levels of approximately 200 different occupations in Federal offices in many locations. Up to 10,000 such jobs are filled each year. Thus, through this one test, you can be considered for a wide variety of positions for which your education has prepared you. Most positions at the entrance and trainee levels are in grade GS-5 paying about $5,300 a year at present. Some positions at GS-7 (about $6,400 a year) may be filled from the list, but only by persons who have certain additional training and education, or by recent graduates who have met certain criteria of superior scholarship. As the Nation's largest employer, the government has a continuing need for promising people to enter the career service. "In a real sense, opportunities for rewarding careers in government will be better than ever because of the increased demands of our society," says John W. Macy, Jr. "The quality of those selected for Government service has become more important now than at any time ir (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) Fall Semester Lists Fifty-Two Ready For Degrees Fifty-two students completed the requirements for graduation in their respective fields last semester.

This is the woman which American society has developed, and this is the type of woman that each American girl strives to become. Within this framework, Miss T Jo- NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS SPONSORSHIP Will Herberg will lecture on the topic "Religion in America: A Sociological Approach" on Monday, March 13 at 8:00 P.M. in the Ball Room of EUiott Hall at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. NCTA Meets March 16-17 In Durham The North Carolina Teachers Association (NCTA) and it auxiliary groups are scheduled to meet during the 86th Annual Convention March 16-17 in Durham. Available for participation on programs as speakers or consultants during the NCTA Convention are Dr. Edward Brice, assistant to the assistant to the commissioner of the U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare- Dr. John H. Starie, consultant for local National Education Associations (NEA); and Mr. John Brown, national youth training consultant at the U. S. Department of Labor. Brown is particularly interested in meeting with vocational guidance, principals, and supervisors groups As an auxilary group of the NCTA, the Student National Education (Student NEA) will meet oi: March 17 at the Hillside High School in Durham. Delegates from the various local associations will make plans for their first spring retreat which is tentatively scheduled for April 13, 14, and 15, for the election of competent officers for the 1967-68 school year, and to implement a discussion on "The Beginning Teacher and Integration." The discussion on "The Beginning Teacher and Integration" is scheduled for presentation in the form of a panel. Participants will include beginning as well as in- service teachers. These discussants will share their experiecnes — problems, solutions, guidelines — with Student NEA representatives from all of the predominantly Negro colleges in North Carolina. The purpose of this discussion is to aid the beginning teacher in his adjustment to an integrated or bi-racial situation. Ann Elliott will develop her address which will be given at the all-campus assembly on Sunday, March 13. Taking as her topic "The Values of a Lady in a World of Change", which is also the theme for Women's Weekend, Miss Elliott will proceed on the premise that the woman is that unifying element which solidifies the home foundations. As Miss Elliott sees it, "Our homes are the foundations of our complex society." To emphasize the importance of women in a world of change, Miss Elliott will bring out several attributes of the woman — endurance, abiding love, steadfast faith, moral insight, and home and family relations. Even though one finds that men are quite prevalent in the world of fashion designing, Ann Carolyn Sidberry will exhibit designs and creations of her own thereby MONDAY NIGHT showing that the women of A&T are designers in their own right. "This," Carolyn states, "is one aspect of homemaking." The fashion show is to be presented at the annual luncheon which is being held at the Voyager Inn tomorrow. To exhibit other characteristics of the modern woman, the Women's Council has planned a formal dance to be held tonight. For a change, the women will be allowed to ask the men out. Tuxedos or dinner jackets will be the attire for the young men, and floor length gowns will be worn by the young ladies. Anyone who witnessed the talent show last night saw many young ladies performing. The talent they presented was varied; it represented the women of the campus. Representatives from each dormitory were secured to insure a cross- section representation of talent present in the female sex of Aggieland. Lyceum Comm. Presents Concert By The New York Jazz Sextet By BILL ADAMS The next scheduled lyceum program offers the student body ol A&T College a live presentation of jazz. The New York Jazz Sextet is composed of six established jazz talents. The group will be presented on Monday, March 13, in Harrison Auditorium at 8:00 o'clock P.M. The artists of the sextet are some of the best in jazz. The musicians are trumpet Freddie Hubbard, pianist Roland Hanna, drummer Freddie Waits, tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, trombonist Tom Mcintosh, and bass Barre Phillips. This writer is very familiar with trumpeter, Freddie Hubbard. Freddie has already been written about in a previous article in THE REGISTER. However, one finds it necessary to mention some additional information concerning the young musician. Although this reporter first heard Hubbard playing with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, he first saw Freddie and his group at a jazz spot called Slug's in New York City. The full, robust sound that characterizes his trumpet playing is sure to reach the audience, no matter where he may be playing. Benny Golson acquired recognition as a composer and a musician. In 1955, Miles Davis recorded a tune by Golson called "Stable- mates" that started Golson's jazz recognition as a composer. Like Freddie Hubbard, Benny Golson also spent some time playing for Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. A few of his well-known compositions are "I Remember Clifford" (the late Clifford Brown), "Blues March," "Blues After Dark," and "Killer Joe." Another of Golson's talents was displayed in the now defunct group of the early 1960's called the Jazztet. The Jazztet was under the joint leadership of trumpeter Art Farmer and Benny Golson. One of the most popular jazz units of its time, a few of their performances have been captured on Argo records (now Cadet label). This person had the pleasure of seeing the Jazztet whex they appeared, along with Stan Kenton's band, in Raleigh a few years ago when they were on tour. Benny Golson is an excellent player and composer. Pianist Roland Hanna has worked and recorded with bassist Charles Mingus. A well-rounded musician, Roland has recorded with his own group for Atco records. Drummer Freddie Waits may be called a choice drummer. Freddie, along with pianist John Hicks and bassist Sam Jones, were backing female vocalist, Betty Carter at New York City's Five Spot. Miss Carter, one of the "hip" vocalists, distinguishes herself by her fine vocal stylings and excellent accompanists. Freddie Waits is one of her regulars. The other member of the rhythm section, bassist Barre Phillips, recently recorded with Archie Shepp. Not only does he keep time well, but his playing is very mobile and intersecting. The other horn that completes the New York Jazz Sextet is that of trombonist Tom Mcintosh. Tom has played and recorded with Benny Golson's Jazztet. * Remember Monday, March 13. The evening should promise to be exciting and memorable. Jazz is here! These "big guns" are Tom Mcintosh, trombone; Barre Phillips, bass; Roland Hanna, piano; Fred die Hubbard, trumpet; Freddie Waits, drums; and Benny Golson, saxophone.
