The building, which was located on the south side of Senior Hall, was actually built in the 40's but because of the wood construction, appeared to be the oldest structure on campus. Several buildings are much older. By Patrice Dunn Discrepencies among Student Government officers as to the evaluation of the past year exist. SGA President Matthew Simpson termed the year a "success" whereas as SGA Vice-President Gail Thomas stated "It's been a long, trying, tedious, agonizing and unproductive year. William Hubbard in agreement with Gail termed it "disappointing from his position as treasurer." Joyce Lindsay. SGA Secretary, merely stated that it was the better of her two years in the SGA. In terming the year a success. Simpson admits, however, that in one respect of "our drive to obtain student involvement, we failed." Continuing. Simpson said that Dr. Cheek To Address 750 Graduates Dr. James E.

June 6 in the Memorial Union. many projects such as the removal of failures from transcripts and reopening of the Afro-House were initiated in the fall, but could not be accomplished until the spring. He said, "it is not that the SGA became more involved in the spring, but that the student body became more involved." To the new officers for next year Simpson warned "It is easier analyzing a problem from the outside than from the inside." He urges them "to carry on in light of all their failures, and his failure as President." Gail, who saw the root of the problem as lack of student interest, fragmentation among SGA executive officers, and little support and involvement by the faculty and administration, said. "I will be happy when this school year terminates and I hope that the A & T student body will never experience another one like it." She asserted that some faculty members had cooperated but the number had not been enough to help the SGA make significant change. To the new officials, Gail "hopes that the next government will profit from our mistakes." She also hopes, "they will have far greater success than we have had and that they very clearly understand the job they are about to undertake and handle it as best they can - not with an idealistic approach but with a realistic approach-because if they go into it with an idealistic view, they will be hurt-I know this from first-hand experience." Commenting on his disappointment, Hubbard emphasized that though he had many ideas, he was constantly faced with "brickwalls" which terminated his progress. As treasurer, Hubbard is also in charge of Social Activities to be sponsored by the SGA. He asserted that the failure of the Jackson 5 Show or Sly and the Eamily Stone Show to materialize was because some of his fellow SGA officers and the school administrators felt he did not have the authority to commit the University to a $15,000 contract. The project as arranged by Hubbard would grossed the SGA some $30,000 which could have been used to sponsor free movies and aid for students to go to Africa and many other free activities for the students.
