National Library Week Celebration To Feature Two Noted Authors "The Cream of CoUege Neon0 VOLUME XXXVIII, No. 25 GREENSBORO, N. C. APRIL 14, 1967 SG Hears Students' Complaints About Food By LEANDER FORBES WHEN AGGIES JOIN HANDS Whether it be in a downtown department store in Greensboro or in a meeting in a small classroom, whenever a group of Aggies assemble for a common cause, you can be sure of some results. This is exactly what happened Wednesday night, April 5, in Campbell Hall at a regular Student Government Association meeting. Senior Adviser Asks '67 Class To Do Better By LEE A. HOUSE, JR. This was the cry of Dr. Alex- . ander Gardner, senior class adviser — "Seniors, wake up." He was only to be re-enforced by Dr. J. E. Marshall, dean of Student Affairs. The Senior Class of 1967 was assailed as one of the "sorriest" classes in the history of the college. Whether this was used as a stimulant to arouse the seniors or an indictment of truth, it should have been received with shame and determination to do better. "You have six weeks", reminded Dr. Gardner, "to erase your apathetic slate and endeavor to be remembered well by the college." Dr. Gardner intimated that he was the only faculty member, he knew, who had ever volunteered to be adviser to the senior class — "and look what I got." The occasion was the annual en- ior banquet sponsored by the General Alumni Association. Of the 130 or more seniors who signed up for plates, only about 100 showed up. Mr. J. C. McLaughlin, former instructor and dean here at the college, related the message of the evening. He admonished the seniors with regard to their lives: "The Verdict Is Yours." The banquet turned into a dinner-class meeting. This was no doubt a golden opportunity for President Bobby Palmer who usually nets anywhere from 5-25 seniors for his meetings. There was mention of a Jubilee Week-end sponsored by the senior class which didn't exactly engender mass enthusiasm or support. Dr. Gardner stated that still yet, he is an optimist and knows that the seniors will rally to the cause of "greatness" for themselves and A&T College these last six weeks of their tenure here and even after their graduation. A few juniors were invited by protocol who are now determined to make the class of '68 much better. Approximately 40 dedicated and determined Aggies, with John Richardson serving as spokesman, impressed the SGA as they demanded a much needed change in the food services here on campus. This newly-organized group, known as SAT (Students for A&T) presented the following complaints, and requests: 1. The quality of the food is not conducive to good health. 2. Left overs are served too regularly. 3. Sanitation is not of the highest quality. 4. Paper and plastic utensils should be used only when absolutely necessary. 5. Meat should be served daily at breakfast. 6. More food should be served at each meal. 7. Food should be sent to the infirmary according to the needs of the students there. 8. Salt and pepper should be placed on every table. 9. Milk should be available at all times. 10. Eating utensils should be cleaner. 11. A pay-as-you-eat system should be established. 12. Bad lettuce and tomatoes should not be used for salads. 13. The food should be hot, not cold, when served. 14. Breakfast hours should be extended. SAT, after having shown such an interest in the students of A&T concluded its petition for aid from the SGA by stating in the words of Richardson, "Mr. President, I would Uke you to know that you have the entire support of our organization whenever you may need to call upon us." SAT is also spearheaded by another well known Aggie, basketball player Carl Hubbard. SAT, like many of us, are tired of begging and pleading for much need changes; they are now demanding and determined. Other interesting and important issues were also presented at the meeting from the various committees. The State Legislature committee attended the annual convention of College SGA's and returned with an Aggie serving on the State Scholarship Fund Committee. The Committeeman is none other than the chairman of the State Student Legislature Committee, Richard Womack. From the entertainment committees, Ray English reported on the progress of the Movie Committee which will seek to elevate the entertainment of the general audience by devising methods for the interruption of movies by unnecessary announcements to be eradicated. Also ushers will attempt to make it possible for as many students as possible to have seats and be comfortable. The Social Affairs Committee whose chief function was with the Student Union Association terminated their planning for this school year and are now peacefully awaiting the opening of the Union Building. (Students are reminded that the Union Building is in the process of being inspected and students should refrain from visiting the million-dollar Union until it is open to the entire student body. The Social Affairs Committee is under the leadership of James Rhodes. Leander Forbes, chairman of the campus beautification committee, reported that funds have already begun coming in supporting the committee's project of improving the physical appearance of the campus. Because of what Forbes termed "neglect", of his duties, he resigned his position. However, the president refused to accept the (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) Two successful authors will be featured in the Library Week Celebration, April 16-22, at A&T College. This annual event with its usual emphasis — Read! Read! Read! — will include two contemporary writers who have made contributions in the fields of Chinese culture and Negro history. Miss Josephine Huang Hung, a visiting lecturer in drama at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, will present a lecture, part of which will be illustrated, on the Chinese Theater.

In an attempt to introduce drama to the West, Josephine Huang Hung has written several articles and books in this field. Her publications in English include A Treasure of Western Drama (1958), Children of the Pear Garden (1961), The Tea Picker Girl (a play), and Chinese Drama, Yesterday and Today (1961). Dr. Earl E. Thorpe, the second author of the week, will be featured in a lecture Thursday evening, April 19, at 7:30 P.M. in the Taylor Art Gallery of the Bluford Library. Dr. Thorpe is a well- known author and scholar in the field of history and a professor al North Carolina College in Durham. Professor Thorpe has written (CONTINUED ON PAGE 3) AT ANNUAL CONFERENCE Virginia Educator Stresses Quality And Involvement For Education The second Annual Student Teaching Conference was held last Saturday in Bluford Library. Activities included two general sessions, six group discussions, and a special luncheon. The highlight of the conference was the main address delivered by Dr. James T. Guines, administrative assistant of the Richmond Public Schools. Using the conler- ence theme "Innovations in Teaching Methods and Their Applica- Miss Margaret Tynes, noted opera singer, a 1941 graduate of A&T College, and Greensboro native, now a resident of Milano, Italy, will highlight the Diamond Anniversary observance at A&T College with a recital on Friday evening, April 28. The observance begins on Monday, April 24, and concludes with a convocation on Saturday afternoon, April 29. tions to the Learning Process", Dr. Guines told the audience that education has not taken over its full advantages. Dr. Guines began his message by drawing several conclusions. These conclusions state, in effect, that (1) we are living in a society which is being blasted by technical revolution; (2) we are experiencing the effects of an accelerated change; and (3) education is the key to needed adjustment for a productive and happy life. The speaker expressed the need for a strong faith in our educational power. Alluding to the Biblical story of David and Goliath, Dr. Guines stated that "faith is the first attitudinal commitment" of the educator. "We must have faith in the powers of education to meet the challenge of change." Dr. Guines emphasized the need for quality of and equality in education. He informed the group that this could be accomplished through the application of technological practices and action research. At this point, he discussed some of the practices of technology as they have affected industry and other areas. His point was to inform educators that they, too, "must get involved" in their own research problems. Dr. Guines emunerated the student, the teacher, the objectives, the instructional methods, and evaluation as the elements in the education process. These elements have the following implications for the educator: (1) effective grouping of pupils for instructional purposes, (2) better utilization of teacher personnel, (3) broad objectives, (4) concrete experiences, and (5) changed behavior in student activities. The group discussions were primarily concerned with student teacher-cooperating teacher relationships, new innovations in teaching methods, and a better student teacher program. The participants for the day included student teachers, cooperating teachers, supervising teachers, and other educators. Dr. S. O. Jones, coordinator of Student Teachers, presided over the meeting.
