THi4 5 REGISTER Volume XXXIX, No. 6 North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, Greensboro October 26, 1967 ON BLACK POWER Forum Features Howard Fuller EYESORE OF THE WEEK: Somewhere among this maze of trees and bushes is a human head of a six-foot student — can you find it? On the other side of these overgrown and unkept hedges which run between Market Street and Hodgin Hall are buildings, cars, and people. As to whether these hedges were meant to blot out Market Street or Hodgin Hall is not known: however, if allowed to continue they shall succeed in doing both. The National Student Association of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro will sponsor a Black Power Forum November 1-3, and highlighting the event will be Howard Fuller, director of Community Organization of the North Carolina Fund. Fuller is also an instructor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Recent controversy over his appointment as lecturer at the University has given him wide publicity. The program will consist of lectures, panel discussions, group discussions, as well as key question and answer periods. Panel members will include students from colleges and universities throughout the nation. There will be an oppor tunity for questions from the floor during both the panel discussions and lecture periods. The format of the program is as follows: Wednesday — November 1 Topic: BLACK POWER, PAST AND PRESENT 2:00-4:00 Panel: Black Power, Means t o Political Power? 8:00-9:00 Lecture: The Ghetto, A Powerless Community 9:00 Discussion Gaoups Friday, November 3 SLUMP IS BROKEN Topic: BLACK POWER AND THE SELF IMAGE OF THE NEGRO 2:00- 4:00 Panel: Black Power, Racism in Reverse- 8:00- 9:00 Lecture: The Effect of Black Power Upon the Self-image of the Negro 9:00 Discussion Groups Other lectures on the program will be professors from near-by colleges and universities, including: Dr. J. H. Brewer and Caulbert Jones, instructors in Afro-American Studies at North Carolina College, Durham. o lIle Uauou. inert: wm ue an uppui- Tr"k "B~M "ITT "1 Sloan Foundation Aids In Million-Dollar Drive KamS Are Plowed Under Aggies Dump 'em 54-8 A&T has received a challenge award of $30,000, from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation of New York City, the first major gift in the University's campaign to raise $1 million. Announcement of the gift was made at a press conference in New York City. Given on a matching basis to stimulate contributions from other sources, A&T will have to raise a similar amount to qualify for the entire grant. The gift may be matched dollar for dollar from alumni contributions, or one dollar for two, given by foundations, corporations and friends in North Carolina, or by a combination of both. A&T was offered the opportunity as a member of the Cooperative College Development Program (CCDP), a group of 30 public and private colleges and universities with predominant Negro enrollments. The organization is sponsored by the Phelps-Stokes Fund, also of New York City. The award is a part of a $1 million gift by the Sloan Founda tion to CCDP members. The balance of $100,000 will be divided into four equal amounts to be given also to those institutions which demonstrate superiority in fund raising performance. The institutions may qualify for the gifts as early as January 1, 1968. A&T has just begun its annual Alumni Giving Program which aims at raising $75,000 on or before March 31, 1968. Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy, president of A&T, was present at the formal presentation of the gift. In a statement to reporters at the press conference, Dr. Dowdy hailed the gift as a "timely expression of confidence in A&T and its program." He added, "I am con fident that the loyal support from alumni from all parts of the nation and from friends in North Carolina will enable A&T to quickly qualify for the gift." A&T participated in a similar program, supported by the Sloan Foundation and as a new member of the CCDP in 1965, and qualified for a matching gift of $33,333. The institution raised its quota six months following its admission to the organization. "The overall success of the first phase of CCDP," said Everett Case, president of the Sloan Foundation, "has persuaded the Foundation that a two-year renewal and modest expansion of the program would contribute further to the progress of these institutions." Chicago, Viet Nam And Hippies Highlight ACP Press Conference By HILLIARD B. HINES, Jr. Several students noticed eight FASHIONS Twiggy Look To Be Replaced By WILLIE Pendleton, one of America's mills, makes virgin wool sportswear that combines rich good looks with lasting comfort and quality. These garments' colorful personalities owe their unfading clarity of tone to quality dyes, cold, clear Northwest water, plus wool's ability to capture — and hold — coloring in a manner approached by no other fabric. All are available at better men's stores the nation over. The American way with wool is typified by Pendleton's inspired execution of the total look of sportswear. Combining complete coordination with clean design through the entire sportswear spectrum, Pendletons appeal to the young in spirit. Pendleton quality is the result of experience in producing woolens. The styling captures — surely and deftly — the essence of today's dynamic spirit. In the Novcm- ■ ■ \p-?> '** ber issue ofi Esquire, there is i a prediction that the waist - length parka will be very popular this winter. Season after snowy season, skiing, speed records are being broken, usually by flashing young Frenchmen like Jean - Claude Kil- ly. One reason for this has been the development o f the minimally cumberson clothing. MAE LEACH Now "Skidress" in France has produced a parka that is perhaps unmatched for freedom of movement. The real trick is that its shorter length eliminates anything that might impede the flow and swivel of the hips. On the slopes or off, this design will certainly be a part of men's wear for this season. With the ladies, all signs point to the shaping of curves. This season will usher in new body- lines with emphasis on curve. The "Twiggy look" will be replaced by the sweet perfection of a Greek or Roman goddess. It is so unfortunate that designers fail to realize the great number of females they design for fall into neither category. Since we do wear the styles they work so hard to create, it is really no problem for these designers. We have the problem of deciding whether or not to wear them. More often than not, we accept rather than reject. The shirtdress is back, but with a belt. Straight leg lanky pants are also back. They replace the once famous bell-bottoms. The colorful and eyecatching pop artistry has yet to be replaced. However, signs are pointing to a tapering off in enthusiasm for this artistry. In the coming months pale colors (pinks, yellows, violets and blues) are going to receive quite a lot of attention in forthcoming collections. Aggies assembled in the vicinity of Cooper Hall last Thursday. The eight were enroute to Chicago, Illinois to attend the Forty-third Annual Conference of the Associated Collegiate Press and National Council of College Publications Advisers held in the Conrad Hilton Hotel. The enthusiastic group — Stanley Johnson, Prince Legree, Jesse Lanier, Nancy Waddell, Larry Wrenn, Pamela Wall, Kermit Som- erville, and I — boarded an Eastern Airliner that would take us to our destination. As the airliner climbed higher and higher, we could see a magnificent view of the Greensboro area. This site was of interest to all eight of us. After a rather brief stay in the air, we arrived at the Chicago airport and caught a limousine to the Hilton Hotel. On entering the building, we were surrounded by a mob of students from various colleges and universities in the United States and Canada; all of them were for the same general purpose. After penetrating the mob, we were confronted by a Frenchman behind the desk who appeared to have gotten a Uttle dismayed at the mob of students seeking accommodations. After being assigned, we went to our rooms for a brief rest while our editor, Stanley Johnson, officially registered us. Later on that evening, we attended the opening convocation for the ACP. The guest speaker, Senator Gale McGee of Wyoming, spoke on "Vietnam: In Perspective." During his address, several Hippies stood up in protest. While the Hippies were standing silently, a group of Naval Cadets walked in and occupied the seats that were previously occupied by the Hippies. This phenomenon was followed by a favorable applause from the audience. The rest of th" evening was spent by students getting acquainted with each other and having a good time. The following morning we began a day of attending discussions and workshops. Perhaps the most interesting and informative discussion was on "Making the News Timely (CONTINUED ON PAGE 6) By THOMAS (T.D.) ALLEN The Aggies who, have had trouble all season, found the winning punch in their 54-8 victory over the Winston-Salem State College Rams. In previous encounters the fearsome defensive unit was the main factor but Saturday the offense really gave the fans a thrilling victory. It was a day for victory, and the Aggies were up for it as they got off to a six-point lead in the opening minutes of the game. Daryle Cher- Miss Patricia boro (center) A&T" at the Homecoming. Mobley of Greens- reigned as "Miss University's recent ~m> mm Z-mW ry returned a punt fifty yards for the Aggies' first touchdown. The defense then scored two more touchdowns as their captain, Elvin Bethea, intercepted a pass and the 255 pound all-American ran it back 28 yards for another touchdown tally. Freshman Donald Thomas scored the last defensive touchdown for the Aggies as he ran back an interception 35 yards. The big difference was the offensive punch that the Aggies had. With Merl Code leading the offense, he showed his form as he had done in high school when he threw for a 25-yard touchdown. With a well- mixed offense, he kept the Rams off balance. The Code to Pearson combination was the "bread and butter" play for the offense. Willie Pearson with his speed, hands, and good moves struck fear into the Rams' defensive backs as they were unable to contain the 191 pound junior from Winston-Salem. Pearson caught two touchdown passes from Code and made several clutch third-down catches thgt enabled the mighty Aggie offense to move on. Aside from Pearson and Code, the offense was sparked by Thomas Blue, a muscularly built fullback who punched in and out of holes for good yardage. From three yards out, the big fullback surged through the Rams' line for a touchdown. Down inside the five again, Blue got the call; but Merl Code, calling plays like Johnny Unitas, put the ball in the air and his fullback took it in the corner of the end zone. The last Aggie score came on a 19 yard pass from quarter back Turner to end Thomas Sanders who put a dynamic move on the defender that shook him lose and enabled Sanders to trot into the end zone untouched. The Rams tried with all their effort to score but the hardnose defense wouldn't give any ground. They were able to score in the second period on 15 yard pass from Epps to Jennings. Epps then ran for the PAT. Throngs lined the streets to watch A&T's most successful homecoming parade. Among the parade watchers were Aggies — present, past, and "future" — and friends.
