editor's review Greetings . THE VOICE OF THE BROTHERS: Brother KENNETH ROBINSON, President of Kappa Chi Lambda Chapter, wrote to voice his concern about the lateness of the journal (in particular, the Summer 1980 issue). Brother Robinson was especially concerned about promotional information on the General Convention — which was included, although the convention was over when most Brothers received their copies. First, let me point out that the only convention information included was the "back cover" — identical to the one which had been run on the three previous issues during the year. Consequently, no information was missed by the Brothers because of late publication. However, the larger question looms — and it is a valid concern. We have discussed the need for maintaining a relatively flexible schedule at the past several General Conventions, both in the Publications Committee and in my report to the Brotherhood. In several instances, we have decided to delay publication in order to include certain materials. This is an option which must remain, because The Sphinx is unparalleled as a source of communication with the Brothers. But, we are committed to remaining within the seasonal publication periods authorized by the General Convention. I think that you can see the progress made in this direction since the close of the convention! Another matter of concern came to my attention "through the grapevine." In this instance, a College Brother, when asked what he'd like to see added to The Sphinx, replied that he thought more attention should be given to the accomplishments of College Brothers — especially in regular features like Alphas On The Move and There Goes An Alpha Man. If only he knew how much I shared his opinion! I have pointed out on a number of occasions that the academic, extra-curricular and athletic attainments of Alpha Men in undergraduate school are comparable to the professional accomplishments of our alumni. The difference in coverage is a direct result of the fact that Alumni Brothers submit news — while, inexplicably, College Brothers have yet to do so to any significant degree. I became so frustrated with this problem that, several years ago, I instituted the Distinguished Collegians feature in order to give greater publicity to the outstanding work being done by our College Brothers. I look forward to the day when this special feature will be unnecessary — because each issue will carry a large number of articles on College Brothers, like the one featuring Brother ARTHUR HOUSTON in this edition of Alphas On The Move. The section is open to all news, if you send it in — we'll print it! DEADLINE: The deadline for the Summer 1981 issue (the last prior to the General Convention) is MARCH 1,1981 . . . Our cover story for this issue, naturally, is a profile of Alpha's 26th General President, Brother OZELL SUTTON. My thanks to Brother Sutton for his cooperation in preparing this feature — and Associate Editor BRADFORD SPENCER for penning a fine article . . . 7987 — Milestone or Challenge is the title of our thought-provoking Legacy feature. Brother MARSHALL WILLIAMS shares with us his insight (always brilliant) into what our 75th Anniversary should mean for individual Brothers and the Fraternity . . . In Focus, we honor Brother RAYFORD W. LOGAN, the Past General President who received the 1980 Spingam Medal from the NAACP. We salute that organization for chosing a truly deserving recipient . . . We would like to thank all those who expressed their appreciation for our new Commentary section. This issue contains articles by Brothers ANDREW YOUNG, HUEL PERKINS and ERWIN A. FRANCE; along with a timely Viewpoint piece by Brother THOMAS S. WATSON, JR. . . . Don't miss the exciting Alpha Athletes feature on Minnesota Vikings stalwart GREG COLEMAN. The article was submited by Brother KEITH A. MILES, son of the inimitable "Moses G." Look forward to more super articles by this talented young journalist. . . College Scene Editor JULIUS HALL will be pleased to know that he's getting rave reviews from all corners. His article in this issue should continue that trend . . . IMPORTANT MATERIALS: This issue also includes a number of inserts for your convenience. These include the Resume Form for use in the 14th Annual Alpha Job Fair and Placement Program; Undergraduate Scholarship applications; and nomination forms for the 1981 edition of Distinguished Collegians. P.S. Feel free to make copies of these forms if you don't want to tear a page out of the journal... Until next issue ... MJP

ftuni ©H1HIHM JPHSSOTETiF SEMES. 9U Four years ago I was privileged to receive what is, in reality, the highest honor bestowed upon a member of our great Fraternity by his Brothers — the office of General President of Alpha Phi Alpha. The Fraternity at that time had progressed steadily since its founding in 1906 and, under the leadership of my immediate predecessor, we had experienced the greatest period of chapter expansion in our history. I pledged at that time to continue Alpha's forward movement and we chose as our national program theme a credo echoing our place in the Fraternity's history: "BACK TO BASICS: The Greatness of Our Past Is the Key to Our Future." In my last report, I tried to give each of you an overview of the things we have done to advance the cause of Alpha Phi Alpha and, perhaps more importantly, to set the foundation for continued progress in the future. During these past four years, I am proud to say that we faced the tough issues head-on — new problems brought on by our unparalleled growth, the demand for increased services, a rising public outcry over abuses in fraternity pledge activities and a spiraling worldwide rate of inflation. Each of these factors placed new challenges before us — but the enlightened leadership of the Board of Directors and support of chapters and Brothers across this country determined that Alpha would meet each challenge, and "transcend." The area of fiscal responsibility received priority consideration during this period. We moved to protect the accumulated assets of our organization by setting up a restricted Life Membership Reserve Fund. At the same time, we increased operating funds by making the General Convention self-sufficient; imposing budget restraints; and by bringing our fee and tax schedule more in line with the actual cost of providing essential Fraternity operations. This is a pattern which must continue — for costs will continue to rise, our 2

organization will continue to grow, and the need (and demand) for services to the Brotherhood will continue to increase. Given these factors, the need for a sound fiscal base will remain an essential element of continued progress. The Standing Orders now serve as a uniform guide for the processing of new members into our Brotherhood. The entire Fraternity system was faced with the problem of eliminating hazing and brutality and, unfortunately, our organization was no exception. Here again we met the challenge — with input from every segment of the Fraternity — and we can now move forward to ensure that each new member of Alpha Phi Alpha is taught the true meaning of the Fraternity, without the senseless and degrading experience of illegal hazing. I will not try to recap all of our accomplishments during the past four years — this was summarized in the last issue. However, I would like to point out that much was done to strengthen the General Office staff. No organization of our kind can move forward without a competent and professional headquarters staff. We are fortunate to have such a group. The profes-

sionals on our staff, headed by Executive Secretary James B. Blanton, possess nearly twenty years of experience in working with this organization. They are dedicated and career-oriented — and work hard to improve both the quality and quantity of service. This staff provides support services to practically every function of the Fraternity, performing far more tasks than ever before. They deserve your continued support as Alpha moves forward. Programmatically, we have given priority to the completion of the Million Dollar Fund Drive to benefit the NAACP, UNCF and National Urban League. We have collected over half of our goal — and I am confident that we will succeed during the next year. Similarly, we have worked hard to provide a means for securing an adequate and attractive headquarters facility for our General Office — one fitting an organization such as ours. These two items still face us — and we must deal with them effectively. I render this final message to the Brotherhood with the same pleasure and humility which accompanied my initial report as your General President. I shall always be grateful for the support you gave to me during my administration. There is no question in my mind that our work has served to insure that Alpha can continue to be the type of organization envisioned by our Jewels. We are strong, fiscally sound and capable of providing great service to our communities and this nation. I am confident that my successor, Brother Ozell Sutton, will provide the leadership needed to continue the ever forward movement of Alpha Phi Alpha. With your support, Alpha will continue to grow stronger. Fraternally, Fraternally,


JAMES R. WILLIAMS General President The Sphinx / Winter 1980

There Goes An Alpha Nan Rockefeller Award To Psychiatrist Comer

Brother JAMES P. COMER, Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry at the Yale Child Study Center and Associate Dean of Yale Medical School, was awarded a $10,000 Rockefeller Public Service Award for broadening opportunities for youth.. Brother Comer is being honored for developing a public elementary school program that encourages low-income minority children to grow intellectually and emotionally. During more than a decade of work with the parents, teachers, and students of predominantly black Martin Luther King School, Dr. Comer built an environment of trust, confidence, and cooperation within the school that led to markedly improved student behavior and achievement. Comer outlines the program in his recently published book — School Power — and is himself currently involved in training other educators to replicate his model. James Comer believes that the schools provide an unparalleled opportunity to intervene positively in the lives of disadvantaged children. Thus he welcomed the opportunity offered to him in 1968 to direct the Baldwin-King School Program of the Yale Child Study Center where earlier he had been a fellow in Child Psychiatry. Since that time, Dr. Comer has applied his training in medicine, human development, and social psychology to the task of upgrading performance in the inner-city schools of New Haven, Connecticut. Dr. Comer's premise is that learning can improve only when the behavior problems plaguing urban schools are significantly reduced. Together with his staff, he focused on breaking down the many barriers inhibiting effective collaboration among all the members of the King School community. His team also worked to develop a consensus on educational objectives within the 4

school and to involve parents as well as school professionals in its operation and governance. Eventually as relationships were strengthened, Dr. Comer turned his attention to the curriculum. A supplemental "social skills curriculum" — tailored to teach minority pupils the skills commonly picked up by middle class children in the home — was integrated into the regular academic course. By 1979, even though the neighborhood around the King School continued to deteriorate, Comer's strategy began to pay off. Test scores improved significantly (up almost to grade level in math and reading), absenteeism diminished and serious disciplinary problems virtually disappeared. Formal training was only one source of Dr. Comer's insight into the complex problems he confronted at the King School. As he himself suggests in his book Beyond Black and White "... the other was my own experience of growing up black in a white-controlled America." Although Comer had been successful in the integrated East Chicago, Indiana, schools, going on to college at Indiana University and medical school at Howard, he was acutely aware that most of his black classmates — many with undereducated, poor parents like his own and some with abilities equal to his — were badly scarred by the schools. In those early years, they e s t a b l i s h e d patterns of lifelong underachievement and failure. Later, volunteer work with the hard-core poor in Washington, D.C., deepened Comer's concern about the cost — in human terms and in national terms — of lives burdened by poverty and broken by unresponsive institutions. He resolved to refocus his own career from the private practice of medicine to public health and child and family psychiatry. Comer returned to graduate school at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health where his Master's thesis centered on the potential of elementary schools to prevent social and psychological problems in young children. In his work at the Martin Luther King School, Dr. Comer has put his theory to the test and has shown that an improvement in the elementary school experience of minority children can result in improved opportunities. The Rockefeller Public ° Awards recognize outstanding acnievements in the public interest. Five awards have been presented annually since 1952 when the program was established by the late John D. Rockefeller, III. Over the years these

awards have become widely regarded as the highest honor for citizens working in service to the public. The program is administered by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs of Princeton University.

The fudge Retires

Brother SIDNEY A. JONES, Jr., Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, retired on December 1, 1980. Judge Jones was elected Judge in December, 1960, and completed 20 years of judicial service on December 1, 1980. He was retained in 1966, in 1972, and in 1978, for 6-year terms. Judge Jones legal career began in 1931 when he graduated from Northwestern University Law School with honors, including election to the honorary legal fraternity, the Order Of The Coif. He entered the practice of law with Brother Albert B. George, who was the first Black Judge elected in Chicago, or the nation, and Charles J. Jenkins, a member of the Illinois Legislature. Judge George served in the Municipal Court of Chicago from 1924 to 1930. In 1939, Judge Jones joined the legal staff of the United States Department of Labor, where he served as Senior Attorney until 1945. In 1945, he resigned and returned to the practice of law with the late James B. Cashin and Brother Edward B. Toles, now a United States Bankruptcy Judge. After the death of James B. Cashin, Judge Jones' associates, in addition to Mr. Toles, included Cecil A. Partee, Brother James A. McLendon, and Hollis L. Green and Odas Nicholson, until he was elected judge. Judge Jones served as Alderman of the 6th Ward from 1955 to 1959. He worked to end abuses in the schools, fought police misconduct, introduced an ordinance or resolution to ask the General Assembly to pay a salary of, at least, $10,000 a year to members of the Board of Education, and obtained many parking lots and playlots for his Ward. The Sphinx / Winter 1980

Judge Jones is completing 50 years as a lawyer. Between 1939 and 1945, he was Senior Attorney for the United States Department of Labor. Before becoming a judge he had an extensive law practice, and participated in many civic affairs, including a member of the Board of Directors of The Chicago Urban League, The Chicago Chapter of The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, President of the Parkway Community House, Chairman of the Board of the Woodlawn Boy's Club, Member of the Board and a founder of the Joint Negro Appeal, Trustee of Coppin Memorial A.M.E. Church, and President of The Cook County Bar Association, and was one of the first Black lawyers to be admitted to the Chicago Bar Association. As an Alderman, he fought racial discrimination on many fronts including schools, police, recreation, housing and other areas. He tried and won cases involving police brutality and discrimination in places of public accommodation. As Judge for 20 years, Judge Jones was rarely reversed by the Appellate Courts. Many landmark decisions were rendered by the Appellate Courts upholding decisions of Judge Jones. Judge Jones is the senior member of the Judiciary of his race, and has served as Judge longer than any other Black Judge in Illinois. Brother Jones was initiated at Atlanta University in 1926 and has remained an active member through the years. He is Life Member No. 18. He served as President of Theta Chapter in Chicago and was instrumental in purchasing the present Fraternity House in Chicago, where the National Headquarters are located. He has attended most all of the General Conventions during the last 52 years and has served as Mid-Western Vice-President and as Acting General Secretary. He has served on many committees of the General Conventions and has served, at various times, as banquet speaker and convention speaker. He was Chairman of the General Convention "SMOKERS" in 1977, 1978, and 1979, and 1980. He was selected as Alpha Phi Alpha's "Man of the Year" at the Philadelphia Convention in 1958, and given the Alpha Award of Merit. He is Chairman of the Committee on National Headquarters. He is Trustee of Atlanta University, and at the centennial celebration of the School, in 1965, he was named as one of the 10 outstanding living graduates. His son, Attorney Sidney A. Jones, III, was initiated at Tau Chapter at the University of Illinois, and is a former president of Xi Lambda Chapter in Chicago. Brother Jones was one of the attorneys who worked with Brother Belford V. Lawson in the celebrated case of Elmer Henderson vs. Southern Railroad, and Stamps vs. L&N Railroad, and other cases and litigation which resulted in the elimination of segregated dining car facilities on railroad trains.

On Thursday, November 6, 1980, the North Carolina State Board of Education unanimously approved Brother PHAIL WYNN, Jr., Life Member No. 2698, as president of Durham Technical Institute, making him the youngest person and the first Black to hold a community college presidency in the state. A search committee of the Durham Technical Institute Board of Trustees chose Dr. Wynn from 170 applicants and 10 finalists. Brother Wynn had served as interim president of the school since May 1, 1980. Durham Tech, which is a comprehensive state and county-supported two-year institution, is the sixth largest of the 58 institutions in the North Carolina Community College System. A native of Lawton, Oklahoma, Brother Wynn received a B.A. degree in psychology from the University of Oklahoma and holds the Masters and Doctoral degrees in community college administration from North Carolina State University at Raleigh. Brother Wynn was a charter member of Zeta Zeta Chapter at the University of Oklahoma. He served six years in the U.S. Army, primarily as a counterintelligence officer, before settling in North Carolina. He currently resides in Raleigh, N.C., and is a member of Phi Lambda C h a p t e r w h o s e members have honored him by naming him chapter "Man of the Year" for 1978 and 1980. Brother Wynn is married to the former Peggy Lynch of Whitakers, N.C., who is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. The Wynns have one son, Rahsaan Phail Wynn, age 3.



by Bradford Spen

I n 1968, Brother Ozell Sutton was doing his job — working as a Field Representative for the Community Relations Service of the United States Department of Justice. He was assigned to work on equal rights programs in several cities in the Southern part of the country. He also served as a mediator during racial disturbances. That is how he came to be in Memphis in 1968, during the strike by that city's garbage workers. For the stay, he was registered in Room 308 at the Lorraine Hotel. In Room 306 was another member of Alpha Phi Alpha — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Practically everyone knows the significance of this date and time for Dr. King, Black America and this country. Brother Sutton recalls that time often — as he continues his work with the Justice Department, and takes the helm as General President of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Alpha's 26th General President is no stranger to adversity. He grew up in a sharecropper's home near Gould, Arkansas. The oneroom schoolhouse is for him a real memory — not just a storybook scenario. Walking to school was the order of the day, coupled with the dubious pleasure of watching the bus pass each day loaded with children of another race. He completed eighth grade at the "colored" school in Gould. But that was the extent of the education available locally and the family had no money to assist him in continuing his education. So he struck off on his own. In Little Rock, he got a job as a dishwasher at Walgreens, working over 60 hours a week in that supposedly part-time job. After Walgreens came another restaurant job. This one was downtown and during that stretch he got the opportunity to watch Brother Thurgood Marshall argue that Black teachers should get equal pay for the work they performed. Brother Sutton 6

notes that time also — as a point of inspiration to him. The dishwashing paid off with Ozell's graduation from Dunbar High School in Little Rock. After two years in the Marine Corps, he returned to that city to enter college. He attended Dunbar College for two years and then graduated from Philander Smith College. Brother Sutton is now a member of that school's Board of Trustees. •

On the recommendation of one of his college instructors, Brother Sutton was hired as a reporter by the Arkansas Democrat newspaper in 1950. He started work four months prior to his graduation from college — and became the first Black reporter on a major Southern newspaper. He recalls that he knew nothing about journalism at the time. But the Democrat was the more conser-

vative of Little Rock's two daily newspapers — and Black folks didn't normally read it (or, more importantly, buy it). So the paper decided that it needed a Black reporter and would train one. Brother Sutton became that one — and he entered his new career with zeal. His favorite story from those days (and he has lots of stories) stems from the matter of using courtesy titles for Black women. In those days, no "Miss" or "Mrs." was placed before the names of "those folk." He notes that every time he'd write one in, the editors would cut it out. After getting no relief, he tried a new tactic . . . using initials. Thus Mrs. Mattie Mae Jones became, in Sutton's copy, Mrs. M. M. Jones; forcing the paper to either keep the title or wipe out the gender of the subject altogether. The Democrat, needless to say, began using courtesy titles for Black women.

door. That incident led to the desegregation of the cafeteria. In 1966, Brother Sutton was hired by the Community Relations Service of the Justice Department. Following the slaying of Dr. King, Brother Sutton went back to work for Winthrop Rockefeller, then Governor of Arkansas, this time as Director of the Governor's Council on Human Resources and special assistant. In 1969, he rejoined the Community Relations Service as State Supervisor for Arkansas. In 1972, he was appointed to his present position as Director of the Southeast Region, including the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.

Brother Ozell Sutton

Brother Sutton left the Democrat, and his journalism career, shortly before the desegregation of Little Rock's Central High School. He was one of the persons who assisted Mrs. Daisy Bates, head of the Arkansas NAACP and leader in the fight to allow Black students to attend Central. Ozell and three or four others were given the job of recruiting eligible students to make the bold attempt. Despite the fear, nine of their charges remained when the time came . . . "The Little Rock Nine."

Brother Sutton began his professional career in human relations after leaving the newspaper — working first with the Little Rock Housing Authority and as a personal assistant to Winthrop Rockefeller. In 1961, he became Associate Director of the Arkansas Council on Human Relations, an interracial group working for equal rights. He was The Sphinx / Winter 1980

appointed Executive Director of the council in 1964.

Brother Sutton led sit-ins of college students and others at downtown establishments. Under his leadership, the group negotiated with businessmen and civic leaders; and most of the theatres and restaurants were integrated prior to passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Elected officials of the state, however, were still resistant — as Ozell found out. While gathering data for a voter registration drive, he found himself going to the cafeteria in the State Capitol because he was hungry. He was refused service, and his protests citing the recently enacted Civil Rights Act didn't impress the management. While arguing he was approached by two large white men who, after Brother Sutton still refused to leave, picked him up, swung him back and forth, and tossed him out the

As you can well imagine, this position keeps him plenty busy. The Community Relations Service works as a mediator in racial and ethnic disputes through the region. As Brother Sutton has noted, "We serve as sort of a barometer on the extent of equal opportunity, and the racial climate, in the region. We try to prevent conflict, as well as resolve it." His job puts him in face-to-face debates with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan; involves negotiations with community groups; puts him in the forefront of the crusade to curb excessive use of force by policemen . . . in short, his professional career is aimed at helping others overcome barriers to equal opportunity similar to those he has had to overcome each day of his life. <

Brother Sutton has had a long and distinguished career in service to Alpha Phi Alpha. He served as State Director of Arkansas and, later, was elected to the Board of Directors as Southwestern Vice President. He served in that position until 1972, when he moved to Atlanta. A Life Member, he immediately became active with the Fraternity in that Continued on page 8 7

area and, when Brother Matthew Dawson relocated (also for a new job), Brother Sutton was tapped to succeed him as State Director of Georgia. He was then elected Southern Vice President and returned to the Board of Directors for a second stint. Following two terms in that position, he was named Chairman of the Committee on Public Policy by the man he succeeds, General President James R. Williams. "Commitment, Involvement and Service" are the watchwords Brother Ozell Sutton brings to his new position as head of the nation's oldest Black college fraternity. They are evidenced in his work within Alpha Phi Alpha and his community — where he is extremely active. He is President of the Greater Loch Lomond Community Organization; a member of the Executive Board of the Atlanta NAACP; and a member of the Board of Trustees of Friendship Baptist Church. He also serves as President of the Southeast Association of Black Federal Officials and, as previously mentioned, a member of the Board of Trustees of his alma mater. After the marches and demonstrations; the professional work; and volunteer service, inside the Fraternity and elsewhere, Brother Sutton has worked to remember how it was . . . and move forward. As for the minor obstacles he encountered along the way, his hometown newspaper put it best, "He Can Laugh About It Now!" And, he does. All the obstacles he has encountered have pretty much been surmounted. And Brother Sutton is quick to give credit to his mother (his father died when he was three) — and his wife and children. His wife, Joanna, is a former schoolteacher, both in Atlanta and Arkansas. She is now a community relations specialist for the Community Relations Administration. His oldest 8

Alpha's New First Couple: Ozell & Joanna Sutton

daughter is Angela Sutton Martin, who still lives in Little Rock and works for American Airlines. His two other daughters are Alta Sutton Pratt-Ansa and Dietre Jo, the latter a senior Philosophy major at Howard University. Ozell and Joanna have three grandchildren — Samuel Martin, Jr.; Angela Martin; and Afrika Jonee Pratt-Ansa. We close this profile with what just has to be Brother Sutton's favorite story. The plot is something like this: When he was a boy, his mother argued with a plantation owner about the amount of money the family owed at the plantation store. Mrs. Sutton wouldn't retreat, and the family was tossed off the planta-

tion. Later, when he was assistant to Governor Rockefeller, a secretary called him to meet with a gentleman who'd come to see the governor. Of course, it was the plantation owner, who didn't recognize Ozell (naturally). Making himself at home behind the governor's desk, Brother Sutton kept the man waiting a little while and then asked the man if he could be of some help. The powerful planter began to explain who he was, but Sutton interrupted — noting that they had already met by saying, "I'm Lula Belle's youngest boy." "I'll be damned," was the planter's reply — over, and over, and over again! He left without ever saying why he came. Brother Sutton is still laughing. . The Sphinx / Winter 1 9 8 0

Goiieoe Is "Alpha" Possible? "Mere Propaganda" — I thought — listening to the spiel of the Alphas at a Sunday afternoon smoker approximately three years ago. I, with only two months of college under my belt, had grown skeptical of virtually all institutions and traditions. Today, as a senior in college and as an ardent supporter and believer in the ideals of Alpha Phi Alpha, I find myself answering an array of questions from other skeptics that, in sum, pose the questions: Is "Alpha" possible? Is it necessary? As a sophomore I met an older gentleman who saw fraternities as an affront to God. He thought that, in our pride and love for Alpha, we were "worshipping" and showing allegiances to something other than our Savior. On the contrary, there are those constantly envisioning "the revolution" — who criticize fraternities for being steeped in petty-bourgeois customs, and being insensitive to the "real" struggle. Likewise, on my campus, there is a noted historian who lectures on the lack of support that Alpha (as well as other groups) gave Brother Paul Robeson in his time of need. All of these groups are asking and charging that "Alpha" is not possible. The most poignant and piercing affronts, however, come from within. That thoroughly planned and sanctioned measures, such as the model pledge program, are oftimes quickly

dismissed as "unacceptaDie maKes me, too, wonder whether the full impact of "Alpha" is possible. As long as there are instances of plummeting grade-point averages for pledges, and potential hazing, we have to ask ourselves if the dream of "Alpha" is being realized. Brother W. E. B. DuBois in an address to the Howard University Class

of 1930, addressed this question. He bluntly labeled college fraternities and sororities as a disappointment because of their refusal to be relevant. He, too, was asking (not only of Alpha Phi Alpha but other fraternities, also), if they were . . . necessary. (The Seventh Son, Page 563, Julius Lester, 1971.) Indeed Alpha Phi Alpha was necessary in 1906 and at the time that both W. E. B. DuBois and Paul Robeson joined. Its ideals were deemed possible then, and little has changed since then. Let's not fool ourselves with our minor inroads into the nation's superstructure. As the saying goes, "Just as all movement is not forward, all change is not for the better." Given challenges to affirmative action, the rise of groups such as the KKK, and dwindling Black enrollment in many schools and fields, one would have to c o n c l u d e that " A l p h a " is still necessary. There is still a need for Brotherhood in college. "Alpha," as I see it, is a philosophy embodied in men. One that is a support system that builds and gives. A quick study of the history of Black organizations would show that many have disappeared. Our task is to keep Alpha Phi Alpha functional and useful, or it too may meet the same fate. This is no minor challenge. Strangely enough, though, it is fortunate that we are challenged and our existence questioned. For there is no greater test of transcendence. But the next time someone asks you, or challenges you about Alpha Phi Alpha, first ask yourself: "What am I doing to make 'Alpha' possible?" For that is crucial to your response to them . . . and Alpha Phi Alpha. Julius Hall

The 1980 elections have given all of us a challenge and an opportunity. The challenge is to prevent a serious erosion during the next four years of the social, political and economic progress made in the last 20 years. That progress is threatened by the election of nard-line conservatives and reactionaries to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and by some of the conservative policies of President Reagan. As an example of the problems we face, consider the Voting Rights Act. That law, which was enacted in 1965 and renewed in 1970 and 1975, is now scheduled to expire in 1982. Clearly it should be extended again, to protect the rights of millions of Black, Hispanic, and other minority voters. Yet Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, the new chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee which has jurisdiction over the Voting Rights Act, says that the law should be repealed. We should never forget how the Voting Rights Act came to be passed, and what it has meant for Black people and the American political system as a whole. Many people gave up their lives in the non-violent struggle of the 1960's for the right to vote. Hundreds were beaten; thousands were jailed. The struggle culminated in the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery. That march generated a nation-wide coalition of conscience under the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and it was this coalition which demanded and finally won passage of the Voting Rights Act. Prior to 1965, in the era that went all the way back to Reconstruction in the 19th century, Blacks in the South were systematically and brutally denied the right to register and vote. In the early 1960's there were only a relative handful of Black elected officials in the South. Since the enactment of the Voting Rights Act, thousands of Black candidates have been elected to public office in the South, thanks to millions of newly registered Black voters. Moreover, the rise of Black political power in the South has transformed Southern politics and had a decisive effect on the nation as a whole. White candidates

everywhere actively campaign for Black support, and it is now commonplace to see successful Black-white coalitions in towns, cities, counties and states across the South. The whole process has had a liberalizing effect on national policies, programs and elections. Jimmy Carter could never have been President without massive Black support in the South and the Northern cities. To understand what might happen if the Voting Rights Act were repealed or expired, we can take a look at how it operates. The original Act identified Southern states and areas within states where there had been a pattern of racial discimination in registration and voting. The Act empowered the Justice Department to send federal voter registrars to those places where there was continued resistance to Black political participation, and federal examiners to monitor the conduct of elections. These federal registrars and examiners have never been extensively used, but at least the possibility of sending them to the South constituted a clear warning to election officials. More importantly, the Act requires that all changes in election procedures in the areas covered by the law be reviewed by the Justice Department. Thus the federal government checks on such changes as redisricting and revision of registration procedures to make sure that the rights of Black voters are not being violated. (Since 1975, the Act has given similar protection to Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans). Where violations occur, the Justice Department can order the state or local authorities to draw up new plans, which also must be submitted to the Justice Department for review and approval or rejection. There is, therefore, an effective dayto-day process for federal monitoring of the thousands of election law changes made at the local, county and state levels. Repeal or expiration of the Voting Rights Act would end that process, forcing Blacks and other minorities to resort to the courts for review of discriminatory voting and election procedures. Obviously, going to court would be very costly, timeconsuming, and burdensome, given the potential for large numbers of viola(Continued on page 12) 11

(Continued from page 11) tions of voting rights. Meanwhile, you can be sure that those who would turn back the clock of history would be thinking up all kinds of schemes to subvert the political process that has emerged since passage of the Voting Rights Act, knowing that their actions were no longer subject to review and rejection by the Justice Department. Thus, the stage is set for a major challenge — the challenge to renew this legislation in 1982. It is not too early to begin to plan and act for extension of the Voting Rights Act. Communities need to organize to apply pressure to

elected officials and other leaders to work for extension. Churches, labor unions, civil rights groups, people in the business world, college campuses, civic organizations, the professions, and social organizations need to be mobilized. And certainly the strong fraternal associations, notably Alpha Phi Alpha with its national network of leaders, must become involved. This challenge, and many others like it, will require much of our energy and effort during the new few years. But we also have opportunities. In economics, for example, we should be building and expanding Black business

VIEWPOINT Where Are Minority CPA Firms? by Thomas S. Watson, ]r., CPA As president of the National Association of Minority Certified Public Accounting Firms, I was often asked "Who is the largest minority CPA firm in the U.S.A.?" The question comes up so often that I have decided to herein attempt to put minority firms in perspective. There are 27,000 CPA firm practice units in the United States. Approximately 150 of those are owned by -minorities. Less than 15 of these minority firms have annual billings of more than 1 to 5 offices in each firm. This represents substantial growth since 1969 when there were about 15 minority firms employing less than 500 people. The 150 firms now employ 3,500 people. However, this growth has not put minority firms in a parity position or anywhere near it. Numbers may help to put it in perspective. The eight largest minority controlled firms combined are not equal in size to the New York City office of any of the eight largest majority owned firms. A look at the relative position of minority firms (see table at bottom) will show that substantial growth must be made before our profession has parity for its minority members. Although we, as minority firms, have a long way to go before we have firms of the size and strength of our majority owned counterparts, we are now delivering similar quality to the clients we serve. Most minority controlled firms are run by CPAs that were trained in the large firms. They have achieved a level of proficiency and professionalism that is expected in those large firms. When they started Total Market

their own practices they brought those practices, procedures, standards and attitudes with them. Their clients therefore can get the quality of a large firm while enjoying the attention and special treatment that can only come from dealing with a smaller business. This is why our firms have been able to grow so rapidly over the past ten years. Before then, most minority CPAs were self trained, having been shut out of the mainstream of our profession. They did not deliver the same quality as larger firms because they had never seen it. They did not know how. With minorities being employed in major firms, serving on committees of state and national professional societies and working in joint ventures with larger firms, we are learning, growing, developing and serving our clients better. It is now possible to be served by a minority firm and receive the same level of service quality as would be delivered by a larger firm. But the smaller minority firm will often put in a little extra effort, interest and empathy because they have to be more responsive to their good clients. They are growing fragile businesses that must still earn or reaffirm their reputation every day. Minority CPA firms make up a small, but growing part of the public accounting profession. Their owners are young energetic resourceful and determined. They will make substantial contributions to the practice of public accounting in the United States and abroad. In response to the many requests, I have included a list of the eight (8) largest minority controlled CPA firms Minority Control

and financial institutions in the 1980's, and we should be supportive of Blacks in the labor market, both the organized and the unorganized. In education, we will be developing a new generation of leadership for all sectors of this nation's society. In politics, we should consolidate and enlarge our power by hard community organizing and by forming coalitions which can give people governments that believe in progress, peace, and justice for all citizens. And so this new decade is a time of serious challenges and exciting opportunities, and I trust that you will be active participants and leaders. in the United States. They are not being ranked by size because the relative difference between the smallest (50 people) and the largest (100 people) can be changed by the gain or loss of one or two important clients. In alphabetical order, they are: Ashby, Armstrong, Johnson & Co. — Denver Colorado & Washington, DC; Banks, Findley, White & Co. — Southeast; Garrett, Sullivan & Co., PA — Southeast and Midwest; Lucas Tucker & Co. — Northeast; Mitchell Titus & Co. — New York City & Washington, DC; Morris Davis & Co. — Oakland, California; Vasquez, Quezada, Navarro & Co. — California; Watson, Rice & Co., Inc. — Cleveland, Ohio, New York City & Washington, DC. Although there is a natural cut off after these eight, there are a number of firms that employ between 20 and 35 people. It also follows that with a gain and loss of a few major clients any of these firms could replace any of the above as one of the eight largest minority owned firms. As with larger majority owned firms, size does not necessarily imply quality or competence in any greater degree that could be found in smaller firms. In fact, there are many high quality minority owned and controlled firms that are not listed above. We have a long way to go. We must realize that the eight largest minority CPA firms listed here, when combined, are not as large as the New York office of any of the majority controlled "Big 8." Our firms perform quality work and have learned good management. They will grow! They will help their clients grow. They are becoming a significant part of the accounting profession and the business community. They stand aready to serve minority owned businesses; state, local and federal government; other small and large businesses and individuals in need of accounting, auditing, tax, or consulting services. They stand ready to serve you with well-trained, qualified, seasoned, professional staff.

Education and The Years Ahead by Huel D. Perkins How and where young Blacks should be educated seems to be a perplexing question in this present decade. For some, there are too many Blacks choosing to matriculate at predominantly white colleges. For others, not quite enough. Blacks are by no means in one accord as to what should be their posture concerning whether or not education can best take place in an integrated or a segregated setting. Are Black colleges and universities needed in this day and age? Is one who believes in segregated schools a racist — be he Black or white? Do predominantly white colleges admit Blacks as freshmen but fail to graduate them? Are white schools interested only in Black athletes? Do white universities know how to teach culturally disadvantaged students? Let us begin by looking at some nondebateable aspects of the dilemma: Education is trie means by which we train this thing called a mind. It is the process whereby we cause man to rise above his status as a mere collection of chemicals and find his union with the universe at the level of the spirit and of ideas. It was this awareness of the absolute necessity of education which prompted Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity to launch its national "Go to High School — Go To College" campaign in the twenties and the thirties. This program has sometimes been referred to as the highest public endeavor of the fraternity. Blacks, as a race are still reaping the benefits of this effort. Historically, education — or the lack of it — has affected the progress of Blacks in these United States as has no other single aspect of their existence. Following the end of the Civil War, there were four million Black people in this country with nowhere to go and nothing to do, due to the lack of education. The fact that over seventy-five percent of the historically Black colleges came into existence following the Emancipation Proclamation spoke to the need for college-trained men and women as never Defore. With these colleges we were able to put teachers in schools, wipe out illiteracy as far as possible and produce leaders for a race of people who had to be led out of the bondages of their minds and their spirits. Of paramount importance in this entire discussion is the number of significant legal changes which have talcen place in American life over the past fifty years. We are 36 years beyond the historic Brown vs. Board of Education decision which struck down The Sphinx / Winter 1980

the separate but equal doctrine; 16 years beyond the 1964 Civil Rights Act which attempted to provide equal opportunities and protection for all of the citizens of this country, and presently we find many states and the Federal government involved in litigation concerning the operation of dual systems of education. The fact that education is important to mankind if he is to progress; that historically education has been a necessary element in the upward mobility of Black people; and that there are now laws in this country aimed at eliminating segregation in all of its pernicious forms seems to shift the emphasis from "where" it takes place to "Row" it will be administered. I share with you three observations concerning present-day education: First, run from anyone who tells you that you do not have to learn to speak and write standard English. Incorrect English, as spoken by thousands of Blacks, is not a separate language but a THE MESSAGE T60M THE AGES

Cover of The Sphinx, April 1930.

"How and where young Blacks should be educated seems to be a perplexing question . . . "

corruption of a standard language which can be mastered. To say that Blacks cannot learn to speak standard English is to admit inferiority and to stigmatize an entire race. Foreigners come to these shores and learn how to speak English flawlessly and many of them come from deepest Africa. It is a cruel hoax to perpetrate upon any Black child — telling him that he must retain his use of "Black English" — in this age when everything Tie will be doing for the remainder of life will depend upon some kind of communication with a larger civilized community. English is the language spoken here in America. If we are to remain here, we would do well to speak it as well as anybody else in this country. It has always amazed me that those who write in support of retaining and teaching "Black English" always do it with the best of standard English. Run! Run! Run! Secondly, eschew any institution which declares that it has a special mission. Any college or university in these United States which calls itself an institution of higher learning, should have but one mission and that is simply to graduate the best prepared, the most articulate, the most competitive product that it can produce. The size, character, emphasis and curricula of institutions may vary, but the one thing all of them must have in common is the production of men and women who think, who can communicate and have the capacity to one day change this world. Today's youth are graduating into a world which is completely different from any that their parents could have envisioned. The options are more numerous. The demands are more intense. The competition is more formidable. Thirdly, every organization — and this certainly includes Alpha Phi Alpha — must relentlessly pursue the cause of the quality of education that Black youth will receive from elementary school through college and professional training. The place where the education takes place is not half as important as the quality of the learning experience. Education is an investment. It is an investment in an individual and in a race. From this investment come the scholars, the leaders, the thinkers of Black people. Finally, I know of no other way under the heavens whereby men might ascend to the true stature of a human being save through education. To be able to think, to be able to communicate, to be conversant with the cultures of the world as well as one's own culture, to have some sense of the past is what a good education is all about. For I am steadfastly convinced that in the years ahead, race will be longer be the mitigating factor against young Blacks claiming their fair share of the American dream. It will be EDUCATION — and the quality of that education must be uncompromised. 13

Black Professionals: Our Future Is In Their Hands By Erwin A. France Last November to the astonishment of some, and to trie obvious delight of many, the nation spoke at the ballot box and chose to change both the national administration and the legislative body which governs our nation. While I am a Democrat of record, at the risk of sounding like a polyanna, I must say that perhaps the events of the November election give us, as Black Americans, an opportunity to reassess our goals and our directions. Since the fall election the airwaves and private conversations have both been full of discussion as to what the implications of these changes may be for Black people. What will it mean to have a Reagan in the White House? What will it mean that the political complexion of the Congress has changed significantly and that we are faced with the possibility of a return of the Nixon era? While these are important questions to be discussed, and Black people must certainly evaluate their position in relation to the larger society, they are perhaps not the most important questions to be discussed. For what these questions do, ironically, is to focus (once again) on what white people will do — and not on what we will do. To be sure, Black America is faced with some serious problems today; the least of them, I would submit, is where the white (moral) majority is going. Again, we are faced with some serious challenges and questions of goal and direction. The first of them is now to develop an agenda for the next quarter century. Where is it that we want to be in the year 2005 and how do we propose to get there? By what steps, with which actors, what resources will be required, what commitments will be necessary and what will the result of all of our efforts be7 The second question is how do we arrest the pervasive serious threat to the basic institutions in the Black community? It is sometimes overt, sometimes not too overt, but there nevertheless. We seem to forget that institutions and organizations are the vehicles through which all groups have attained success. No individual makes it on his own — and while charismatic leaders have a place in the scheme of things, they cannot provide the basis for group progress. Further, we tend to forget that individual progress is not group progress and thus we must evaluate a whole series of actions in terms of the extent to which they strengthen or 14

weaken the fabric of our institutional network in the Black community. For example, a decade or more ago, integration was a major value being promulgated throughout the land. Today, it should be clear that the concept of integration serves white people's interest more than it does the interests of Blacks. Further, a decade and a half ago, there was little talk about metropolitan government. Today, the concept of metropolitan government is being advanced very broadly and the rationale behind it is greater economies, better services, and higher efficiencies. But the truth of the matter is that as Blacks become the majority population in the major cities of the nation, certain power interests are determined that we shall not become the political force that can be developed in the central cities of the nation and control the major industrial, economic, manufacturing, and retailing elements of the country. An even further example may be seen in the fact that increasing numbers of professionally trained Black young people are moving to the suburbs, accepting jobs in the private corporate sector and disassociating themselves from the predominantly Black institutions in the center cities. Without the constant infusion of new leadership that will come only from this population, these institutions will eventually die. Certainly the dominant group understands this phenomenon and, at the risk of sounding excessively paranoid, perhaps that is a part of the plan. The third major question we face is how, having developed an agenda for the next quarter century, we organize Blacks to get maximum gains out of what, on the face of it, appears to be a wave of conservatism which can be expected to prevail for at least the next 8 years. One thing is clear. Leadership will be critical in the next two and a half decades, and at every level of the Black community we see a wider and wider vacuum in leadership. Harold Cruse, in his book The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual, points out that every ethnic group that has achieved position and power did so under the leadership of its trained classes — its intelligentsia, and that Black people have no reason to believe that we will achieve by any other route. Many people ignore the fact that it was not the masses who organized, led and sustained the Civil Rights movements in the '60's; rather it was the Black professionals and the

college students, both of whom seem to be on a retreat from responsibility at this juncture in history. Against this backdrop, then let us explore what are some of our most pressing needs now and for the next 25 years. First, we need active, "Enlightened Leadership." By "Enlightened Leadership" I call for people who have a sensibility in addition to sensitivity. In the past so much emphasis has oeen on sensitivity or feelings, without which, of course, leadership cannot be enlightened. But feelings are not enough. Sensibility, by definition, is the ability to understand what is going on around you, that which is overt as well as that which is subtle; the ability to see the big picture, personally detaching one's self, looking in the long range. The ability to display keen intellectual perceptions which perceptions are accompanied by emotions and feelings. It is not possible to plan or to give enlightened leadership cased only on emotions. Neither is it possible to give leadership without it. Thus, "Enlightened Leadership" is our first need. Secondly, we must have a "New Accountability" on the part of Black leaders. It might be assumed that if leaders are enlightened, then accountability will be automatic; but there are so many pushes and pulls, so many deals which have to be "cut," so many tradeoffs which have to be made. Accountability to those being led is very critical and it becomes very difficult for Black leaders to consistently be accountable in the absence of a community which holds them accountable. In a sense, the burden of making leaders accountable must fall on the shoulders of the community which must create a counter-force to others — outsiders who would make demands of our leaders and to whom they are obligated to respond in the absence of adequate, broadly based strong support among their own people. Thirdly, we need a "Plan." A plan that is far reaching. That is why, for example, I call for a plan not for the decade of the '80's but a plan for a generation, the next 25 years, the period between now and the year 2005. Our plan must be far reaching in concept as well as time and it must be sufficiently well structured that its concepts are understood; that it is operationalized and then institutionalized and so that it provides a framework within which all Black individuals, organizations and institutions evaluate the relevance of what they are doing. Fourth, having developed a Plan to be implemented under the guidance of Enlightened and Accountable Leadership, it is then critical for us to take "Responsibility" for ourselves and our destinies. We can no longer charge our losses to fate, or to the bad intentions of oppressors, whoever they are. We (Continued on page 26) The Sphinx / Winter 1980

In 1981 Alpha Phi Alpha will celebrate the 75th Anniversary of its existence as a Fraternity. By any rational standards, the men of Alpha can be justly proud of their membership in an organization that has endured the changing times and the vicissitudes and rigors of the years since the founding year of 1906. The General Convention theme for the year 1979 — two years prior to Alpha's Diamond Jubilee — proclaimed: The Greatness of Our Past is the Key to Our Future." The theme itself was part of the larger pronouncement — "Back to Basics" — first articulated with such wide enthusiasm and receptance at Atlanta, in 1977, and since has been continued. The tenor of the times and the nature of the progress the Fraternity has made join in prompting the question whether the Brotherhood shall view the arrival of its jubilee year as just a milestone; a time for celebration, which is certainly well deserved; an occasion for a backward look at past achievement, of which there are many; or any enumeration of all the able and brilliant men who are now within or who have passed through Alpha's Golden portals. In truth Alpha should, and in a sense must, do all of these things for, properly, they are the very grist out of which milestones are born. But, there is a dichotomy in all this. The temptation is, and will be, to dwell on our glorious past to such an extent that 1981 will become a milestone and not much more. One dares to hope that those who feel and think deeply about Alpha's past, and who have a genuine and abiding concern for its future, will place 1981 in a broader perspective than that of having reached a milestone. Their choice will be, rather, to expend amply the full energies of the Brotherhood on charting the kind of future the Fraternity will need if it is to survive to its sesquicentennial year. In this view lie the seeds of challenge. It is not to be thought that the ideas and ideals set in motion by the JewelFounders, and the solid and exemplary furtherance of these through the long "Golden Chain" forged since by such stalwart "links" as Wesley, Cannon, and countless others, should not be just cause for exultation. But, what all these men stood for, and what those living still stand for, commands us to bear always in mind that neither age nor the passage of time is, or every was, a sure prescription for excellence. A careful reading of Alpha's history will show that what motivated our Founders was a call to the pursuit of excellence — and it is this, more than the passage of a milestone, which echos down the corridor of years to those who still labor in Alpha's vineyard.

LEGACY. Dy Marshall Williams The purview of this article is much too narrow to assay what Alpha's future should be; indeed, such an undertaking is beyond the capacity of any single mind. What is required, and is within the realm of the possible, is an intense examination of the relevance of what we have done in the past. This, coupled with an honest evaluation of whether the future can be served by the status quo, will help to lead us to workable answers and programs for the future. What, then, are some of the issues to be confronted? At the threshold, a statement of Jewel Callis marks a good beginning: In his book, "Henry Arthur Callis — Life and Legacy," our Historian, Brother Charles H. Wesley, reproduces a letter written to Brother Lawson in November 1947. In that letter of a generation past is this sentence: "Institutions survive only insofar as they are capable of adaptation to the constantly progressing changes in the milieu within which they live and work." Today, as then, Alpha's first challenge is whether institutionally we are still a Fraternity for the time in which we work and live. Many Alpha men are beginning to question whether Alpha's internal structure — little changed since Jewel Callis' letter — is serving the Fraternity in a manner best calculated to meet the challenge of excellence. There is no simple answer to this question, but there is time before the end of 1981 to initiate serious and sober debate, out of which answers can come. Much has been said over the last ten years about the gap between the number of Alpha men living and the number of these who support the Fraternity by remaining active. It is agonizing to reflect on what causes approximately nine out of ten initiated Brothers to lose, over the years, the undoubted enthusiasm for the Fraternity they must have felt when "crossing the burning sands." This, too, is a difficult question to answer. However, it is worth the speculation to believe that the Fraternity might well be surprised if it could organize some means of simply putting this question to the inactive Brothers. In any event, the nearness of a 75th Anniversary would seem to justify both the risks and the costs involved in such an endeavor. Frequently heard amongst Alpha men, inactive as well as active, is the question whether the maximum good is derived from the financial resources presently available to the Fraternity. Here, as elsewhere, answers are not easy to come by. But, it can be believed that a solid demonstration that

such resources as Alpha does have are devoted to excellence, and that with additional participation the Fraternity could do even more, would go a long way to stimulate the growth and influence of the Fraternity both within and outside the ranks of its Brotherhood. One hears, ad nauseum, the questions: What is Alpha doing? What is Alpha's programme? Or the observation "Alpha exists for General conventions." The basis for many of such observations stems from the ease with which an inactive Brother chooses to rationalize his lack of participation. As much, however, stems from our collective failure to pursue with zeal the programmes we have, and to insist with vigor that our horizons should be widened and extended. This brief article cannot raise all the questions and issues, nor was it so intended. The main purpose has been to call attention to a forthcoming event which can be the catalyst for self-appraisal and challenge. If, in some small way, such a purpose has been served, Brothers everywhere, and those who stand and wait outside the portals of the House of Alpha, will be justly proud that we came to understand and give meaning to Jewel Callis' profound statement. That Alpha has reached its Jubilee Year is, indeed, a milestone of monumental proportions; more than that, it is a splendid moment in time. Be all this as it may, the real task for Alpha men must be to seize the oportunity afforded by this moment, and begin the kind of dialogue which will best enrich and extend the heritage left to us so long ago. That is the challenge! It is not to be doubted that, with the limitless talents and skills within our ranks, we can meet this challenge. If we do, our satisfaction will be the certainty that those Brothers privileged to plan Alpha's Sesquicentennial will look back on us and our time and surely say: how well they wrought; the Fraternity has endured; 1981 was for them a milestone and a challenge.

He is a native of Jacksonville, Florida where he and his wife, Eleanor, and daughter, Cara Jennine, reside in the off season. Not large for a football player, Greg was described by his college coach, Rudy Hubbard, as an all around kind of guy. At FAMU Greg never missed a game in four seasons. He attempted 53 field goals and made good on 27 of them for a little better than a 50% average. For PAT's Greg was 76 out of 96 for an average of .791 and scored a total of 157 points. In punting Greg attempted 127 punts for 5,099 yards and an average of 40.1. His longest punt in his college career was for 68 yards. During his college days he was named All SIAC (Southern Inter-Collegiate Athletic Conference) in 1973, 1974, and 1975. Greg was a 14th round draft choice by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1976. After things didn't work out for him there, he went back to Jacksonville and taught World History and helped coach track. But that Alpha luck gave him another chance, this time with the 16

Cleveland Browns. When Tom Skladany refused to sign a contract with the Browns, Greg made the team. He punted 67 times for a 39.2 yard average. A year later he averaged 47.5 yards per game in the pre-season but was cut before the season started. Greg calls that time the lowest point of his career, but he never gave up. "When the Vikings called, I couldn't have been happier. I knew how much pride this club has in its special teams and I wanted to be with a team that knows how to win." All football kickers work alone after practice or on a separate field because they need the space to work out the kinks. Greg is used to working alone, he did it as one of the leading hurdlers in the nation for FAMU, running the high hurdles in 13.5 seconds at his peak. He also competed for a national AAU team in international meets. Greg's former track coach at FAMU, Bobby Lang, said, "To me he was one of the most outstanding men I've coached as a hurdler. He was a leader and he did it by example. He was a team man who did his job to the best of his ability." According to Lang, "Greg was one of the top ten hurdlers in the country at that time." Lang especially remembered Greg for his talented toe that lifted FAMU over Alabama State one Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee, Florida in 1975. Greg set a record that still stands in FAMU's record books. He kicked four field goals, which proved to be the only scoring the Rattlers did that day. The final score was FAMU 12-Alabama State 11. Since he's been with the Vikings, he has stolen the hearts of Vikings fans. "It's a warm feeling here," he says. "You've got a job to do and the other guys know it and are pulling for you." Sometimes in the off-season Greg's wife Eleanor clocks his punt's hang times and also those of his brother Erroll and cousin Vincent, who is presently the kicker at FAMU.

According to Greg, "We're the kicking Colemans." In Minnesota they call him a good-bad weather punter, which means that a lot of guys who kick don't want to play in the north. "They'd rather not play instead of kicking for northern pro teams in cold climates. Well, I didn't have a choice, so I guess it means I roll with the punches and don't worry about the weather." "In the very near future the Vikings will be a contender again," says Coleman. "We lost Alan Page, Carl Eller, Fran Tarkenton, and Mick Tinglehoff. I'd say right now we're in a period of readjustment, but we'll be back. In fact we started coming around at the end of last season." Being the league's only African-American punter doesn't seem to bother Greg much. He remembered playing the Cowboys in Dallas, where both teams benches are on the same side of the field. Greg remembers Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson saying, "Hey Coleman! I thought you were a dark skin white boy, but you're as black as I am." Greg says, "The Vikings don't

1. GREG COLEMAN 2. Brother Coleman and "the golden toe" in action. care what color I am as long as I produce and that's important." Greg says when things settle down a bit he plans to be more active in the Fraternity. In the off-season he does a little teaching and some sportscasting for a television station. For Greg, it's a big thrill to hear youngsters say he's a punter. "It gives them a different perspective. For so long, kids looked up to people like Bob Hayes . . . players in the glamorous positions, now they can see a black punter. I can remember in my high school yearbook I said I wanted to be a punter in the NFL and here I am." "When I went to Minnesota they needed somebody to punt the ball and that's what I did." Greg says, "One of the ultimate goals of a professional football player is to be the best and I always wanted to do my best."

BROTHER RAYFORD W. LOGAN, who served as the 15th General President of Alpha Phi Alpha (1941-45), was the recipient of the 1 9 8 0 Spingarn Medal — the highest honor given by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The award, made at the NAACP's summer convention in Miami, cited Brother Logan for "the tenacity of his determination to acquaint America and the world with the hopes, aspirations and achievements of Black Americans . . . " Brother Logan was born on January 7, 1897 in Washington, D.C. After finishing M Street High School in 1 9 1 3 , he graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Williams College in 1 9 1 7 . Enlisting in the United States Army in 1 9 1 7 , he was promoted to First Lieutenant of the 372nd Regiment of Infantry in January 1 9 1 8 . He served at the front in the Argonne Forest and in Camp Ancona near Bordeaux, until his discharge in August of 1 9 1 9 .

Brother Logan remained an expatriate in Europe from 1 9 1 9 through 1 9 2 4 , during which time he served as Secretary of the Second PanAfrican Congress, in 1 9 2 1 ; the third Pan-African Congress, London, in 1 9 2 3 ; and as Deputy Secretary of the Pan African Association. After his return to the United States, Professor Logan taught history, social sciences and foreign languages at Virginia Union University from 1925 to 1 9 3 0 . In 1 9 2 9 he received an M.A. degree in history from Williams College. After completing his residency in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University, he served as Assistant to the Editor of the Journal of Negro History, Dr. Carter G. Woodson. In 1 9 3 2 he received his M.A. degree, and in 1 9 3 6 the Ph.D. degree in history, from Harvard. He served as Chairman of the Department of History at Atlanta University from 1 9 3 3 to 1 9 3 8 .

specialist in international affairs, Brother Logan was, in 1 9 4 5 , an Accredited Correspondent for the Pittsburg Courier at the San Francisco Conference which organized the United Nations. He also served as a member of the United Nations National Commission for UNESCO. He was an Accredited Non-governmental Observer for the NAACP at the Sixth General Assembly of the United Nations in Paris in 1 9 5 0 and a Fulbright Research Fellow in Paris to study the administration of the French Overseas and Trust Territories. In 1 9 5 0 - 5 1 , following the death of Dr. Woodson, Brother Logan was Director of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, and Editor of the Journal of Negro History and the Negro History Bulletin. A familiar quote reminds us that "Alpha Phi Alpha's greatest interests lies outside itself," and perhaps no one has embodied that sentiment better in his fraternal workings than Brother Rayford W. Logan. As the Fraternity's Director of Education (1933-40), Brother Logan was instrumental in forming the Alpha Phi Alpha Foundation to continue and expand Alpha's educational crusade. He served as the Foundation's first Chairman. In this role, he led in re-evaluating Alpha's educational thrust, as carried out in the "Go-to-High School-Go-to-College" campaign launched in 1 9 2 0 . The result of this effort was the development of the "Education for Citizenship" campaign, designed to acquaint Blacks with their rights as citizens and educate them in making use of these rights. While the programs of the earlier thrust were carried out under the banner of the Foundation, this new thrust went on to become an outstanding success. From it was developed the now famous slogan, "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People." Brother Logan succeeded Brother Charles H. Wesley as General President in 1941 and throughout his term (which spanned the difficult war years) he kept the Fraternity in the forefront of the fight for human rights in America and abroad. In announcing the call for the 1 9 4 5 General Convention (his last as General President), Brother Logan announced that the Honorable Norman Manley, leader of the People's Party of Jamaica, had been invited to address the convention's public program. This announcement was a continuation of Alpha's pioneering in the area of manifesting an interest in and cooperating with peoples of color throughout the world.

In 1 9 3 8 Professor Logan joined the faculty of the Department of History at Howard University, where he became Chairman of the Department in 1 9 4 2 and served until 1 9 6 4 . Appointed Professor Emeritus of History in 1 9 6 5 , he served as Historian of the university until 1 9 6 9 . Dr. Logan's investigation of conditions in Haiti contributed to the withdrawal of the United States Marines from there in 1 9 3 4 . In August of 1941 the government of Haiti conferred upon him the National Order of Honor and Merit with the rank of Commander, "In recognition of the high esteem of the government Republic." A

and Haiti, 1776-1881 and The Attitude of the Southern Press toward Negro Suffrage, 1932-40. Following his presidency, he was appointed Chairman of the Committee on International Relations among Minorities by then General President Belford V. Lawson. In this capacity he published Alpha Phi Alpha and the Post-War World, in which he declared "Alpha Phi Alpha has an inescapable responsibility to shape the future of the world." This primer remains an enlightened treatise on promoting "democracy in the United States and a better life for all peoples, especially the darker peoples of the world."

As Education Director and General President, Brother Logan developed Alpha into a leading source of research and scholarship. His publications, with Fraternity support, included The Diplomatic Relations of the United States

In Chicago (from left): 15th General President Logan; 14th General President Wesley; 25th General President Williams. Following the bestowal of the Spingarn Medal this summer, Brother Logan came to Chicago — where he was the featured speaker at the revived Smoker and Symposim. Interestingly, Brother Logan himself had chaired such a Smoker over fifty years ago — at the 1 9 2 6 General Convention in Richmond, Virginia. At that time he was just beginning the brilliant career which led to his receipt of the Spingarn Medal — a career firmly based on the "inescapable responsibility" he had proclaimed earlier. In closing, a further look at this philosophy will underscore his accomplishments — as an Alpha Man — and his challenge to us all. In Alpha Phi Alpha and The Post-War World, he outlined our "inescapable responsibility" as follows: " . . . We are citizens of the dominant nation in the world today, the nation whose citizens will determine the future more than those of any other nation. We are college men who, presumably, are informed about world affairs and are active in making our views known to the statesmen who formulate the policies of our nation. We are Negroes — members of a minority in the United States, but members also of the colored peoples who make up a majority of the total population of the world. Finally, 'Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All.'"

The retirement of Brother LEWIS C. DOWDY as c h a n c e l l o r of North Carolina A&T State University on June 30, 1981, will end the careers of one of the nation's most distinguished educators. Dowdy, chancellor of A&T since 1964, began a leave from that position on November 1 until his retirement date. He was a longtime member of Kappa Lambda Chapter here. In a letter to the Board of Trustees, Dowdy asked the board for a leave of absence to take care of some personal health problems. He said he would then return to the University for teaching and research. In a statement, Brother Dowdy said: "I feel that over the past 15 years we have built a solid academic program at A&T, and we have achieved national accreditation for all of our academic programs for which this is possible. We have an outstanding faculty and student body and competent administrators, and I am confident that A&T will continue to make a significant


contribution to higher education in the state and the nation." North Carolina Governor, Jim Hunt, and Dr. William Friday, president of the University of North Carolina System, were among dozens of officials who hailed Dowdy as an o u t s t a n d i n g college administrator. Dr. Lacy H. Caple, Chairman of the A&T Board of Trustees, said: "It will be impossible to express the magnitude of Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy's service to A&T State University over the past twenty years. Dr. Dowdy has served longer than any current Chancellor in the U n i v e r s i t y S y s t e m . The h i g h e r education community has to be grateful for his leadership to it. He has built a monument. We are shocked by his intent on retiring, but certainly education has been tremendously enhanced by his many years of dedicated service. For this we are grateful." When Dowdy became president of A&T in 1964, the University had 3,229 students as compared to more than 5,500 students today. He increased the number of faculty members with doctorates from 23 percent to more than 56 per.cent and the amount of funded faculty research from $51,000 per year to more than $2 million per year. Under Dowdy, the university has gained national accreditation for its schools of nursing, engineering, business and economics, its programs in teacher education, industrial technology, chemistry and social work. During Dowdy's tenure, A&T's faculty was increased from 198 to 340 The Sphinx / Winter 1980

and its graduate school enrollment from 216 to more than 700 annually. Under Dowdy's leadership, 13 major buildings have been constructed on the campus at a cost of more than $21 million. Dowdy, 63, came to A&T in 1951 as director of student teaching. He held several administrative positions before being named president in April of 1964. A native of Eastover, S.C., Brother Dowdy was a nationally prominent educator, having been the first Black elected to serve as president of the National Association of State Universities and Land-grant Colleges. Prior to coming to A&T, Dowdy had served as a high school principal in three South Carolina cities. "When I read the minutes of the 73rd Anniversary Convention of our great Fraternity dated August 3-9, 1979,1 see a unique style of recording and the most professional minutes I have read in 30 years." These words of commendation were spoken by Brother Dr. Allan Durrant of Philadelphia to Brother VERNON M. HERRON, the Convention's Recording Secretary. Having served two General Conventions, Brother Herron has impacted the office of Recording Secretary with efficiency, style, professionalism and charisma. Few know of the diverse contributions and varied benefits the Fraternity has received through his office. The following profile is written so that the brotherhood of Alphadom might be aware of the professional leadership ability of our Recording Secretary for the annual conventions and to express gratitude for a great fraternal spirit — an unsung hero. Dr. Herron is a native of Charlotte, N.C., and was initiated into Alphadom in 1950 through Beta Rho Chapter — Shaw University, Raleigh, N.C.

Brother WILBERT SMITH, Community Relations Director of South Shore Hospital, 8 0 0 1 S. Luella Avenue, Chicago, has been elected President of the Illinois Hospital Public Relations Society (IH-PRS). Smith will head the statewide hospital society representing over 100 hospitals, health care institutions, and organizations for the next year. He was selected to head the organization as the IHPRS members met at the Hyatt Regency hotel on Friday, September 26, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Illinois Hospital Association. Brother Smith, the first Black to head the state society, has been with South Shore Hospital since 1977. Previously h e w a s d i r e c t o r of c o o p e r a t i v e education and mid-management coordinator for Malcolm X College of Chicago.

In his acceptance speech of the honor accorded him in being elected as President of IHPRS, Brother Smith said he would soon be naming the members of his administrative team to assist him during the coming year. Brother KENNETH E. WILSON was recently saluted as "Man of the Month" by the South Suburban Law Journal. Justice Wilson was born and raised in the shadow of Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helena. He attended elementary and high school in Tacoma, Washington, where he was active in athletics, especially track. He ran as a member of the mile relay that set a high school record that stood for 20 years. When it came time to enter college, he traveled across the c o u n t r y to Hampton, Virginia. He graduated from Hampton Institute with a bachelor's degree before joining the Corps of Engineers from 1942 to 1945. While in the service, he met and married his wife, Orestes. They have one daughter, Michelle. Motivated with her father's energy, she has now decided to enter the study of law after having achieved success in another field. On separation from the service, Justice Wilson had committed himself to attend law school. He found it difficult to select from the many fine schools around the country, several of which had accepted his application. He was certain that he wanted to be within traveling distance to his home territory of Tacoma as well as his wife's of Little Rock, which made Chicago a logical location. Having made his decision, he applied to and was accepted by the U n i v e r s i t y of C h i c a g o w h e r e h e enrolled and subsequently graduated in 1948. Justice Wilson was especially well equipped for his election to the bench. He had the foresight to involve himself with literally all facets of government. He served as an assistant attorney general, assistant state's attorney in the County of Cook, and was elected a state representative for a 9year period. He also served as a master in chancery for the Superior Court of Cook County. This was all capped by a 4-year term as County Commissioner. These positions gave Justice Wilson e x c e p t i o n a l l y g o o d insight into examining the historical background on various cases that may currently appear before him.

COMMENTARY BLACK PROFESSIONALS (Continued from page 14) must take control of ourselves, we must take control of our children, we must take control of our communities and especially our schools. We must determine who teaches our children. We must determine what our children learn and we must determine what resources outside our community gain access to and acceptance within our community. Fifth, we must focus on "Black Institutional Development." Again, it must be underscored that institutions are the vehicles through which people achieve their hopes and goals and aspirations. When one does a careful analysis of the Black community it becomes increasingly apparent that the only institutions we own anymore are the Black Greek letter organizations, the Black fraternal groups and the Black church. All of the other institutions we participate in are in someone else's ownership. Thus, it should be obvious that the Black Greek letter organizations, the Black church, the Black fraternal organizations and Black professional societies must then be the focal point of our attention in terms of development and that they must take the leadership in assisting us in addressing the major needs mat must be fulfilled. Sixth, we must develop "Unity." The cry for unity is not new, yet it is increasingly apparent that there are forces external to the community that are trying to build walls rather than bridges, and who are trying to destroy our capacity to develop a cohesive community. This must be overcome. No longer can forces external to the Black community drive a wedge between the so-called professionals and the masses. No longer can we be separated by other artificial, arbitrary and capricious labels. There must be one Black community striving to attain one set of goals and working in concert with each doing that which ne can best do. Finally, we must develop what the psychoanalyst Eric Fromm has called a Revolution of Hope." A part of the strategy for destruction has been the generation of a demoralzed feeling; a sense that things cannot be better; a sense that the odds are against us: a sense that it doesn't make any difference; a sense that somebody greater than we are has a master plan which will prevail regardless of what we do. Alpha Phi Alpha is the oldest Black Greek letter organization in America. From the days of its founding at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, to today and the future, it has the capacity to stand tall and give leadership on matters of public policy, community development and institutional development. It shall be, "first of all, servants of all and transcend all," only insofar as it points the way and holds high a torch which illuminates the way for others and the nation.

u of The Brothers of Xi Omicron Chapter, the first chapter to be chartered in 1980, bring you greetings from the University of Delaware. As we embark on our first full semester as Alpha men, we realize the challenge that lies ahead of us. We must strive to establish Alpha Phi Alpha here at U of D as a standard bearer, although we are the last Black founded fraternity to be chartered at the university. Ironic isn't it? But there is an old saying that the last shall be first and the first shall be last, so here at Xi Omicron we have both ends of the continum covered. Furthermore, being at a primarily white school, we find it necessary, as did our most noble Jewels, to band ourselves together, not only intrafraternally, but interfraternally as well, to make the Black population at the University of Delaware a more viable and respected component of the whole. Currently, we have started on our semester calendar and some of our activities include working with the Freeto-be-me Program, a program for the mentally handicapped; sponsoring a canned food drive for the needy; a university-wide pool tournament; and our most distinguished project, "The Seven Wonders of Alpha," our Founders' Weekend celebration. Hopefully, Brothers, these are only the beginning phases of what will prove to be one of the most dynamic chapters in Alpha. With these goals, lofty as some may be, we must be ever cognizant of our ideals: manly deeds, scholarship and love for all mankind â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and let them serve as a code of conduct as we start the building of Xi Omicron and of better interracial relations here at the University of Delaware. Keep Alpha strong Brothers, so that we may remain ever in the forefront.

Columbia u Zeta Eta Chapter at Columbia University is proud to report that it has continued to "keep the light burning," beginning with the employment of two high school students as part-time daily maintenance workers of our Alpha House. This was a project we designed with the help of the university and the city of New York. Our purpose was to

We receive funding from the city of New York and Columbia University to pay for salaries and for tutorial equipment. The chapter has also implemented a program whereby African-American students can constructively present their views on problems they are confronted with every day at a major traditionally white institution. It is one that brings the students, the faculty and administrators together to discuss the issues. The program has been so well received that a Columbia University trustee has asked our chapter president, Brother Kirk Bowen, to arrange a meeting between him and the students. This is a first. In our effort to show appreciation for the contribution Brother Albert Holland has bestowed upon Zeta Eta chapter, we have made him an honorary member of Zeta Eta. Brother Holland pledged in the 1940's while attending Columbia University. The chapter that was once at Columbia, Eta chapter, is now a city chapter. This chapter is the chapter Brother Holland pledged, but now Zeta Eta chapter has added him to its numerous list of leaders.

We have won Eastern Regional Chapter of the Year in '73 and '77. Across the state of Virginia, Theta lota Brothers are known in every college chapter and extends an open welcome for all Brothers to come and see "the pride of Virginia Alphas." As a reminder to our Brothers, we say that past accomplishments are not enough. Alphamen must keep promoting the highest form of brotherhood that man has to offer. We present to you the "Theta lota Challenge:" continue the good works of Alpha Phi Alpha and demonstrate the greatest form of unity at any given moment. This is Theta lota, transcending in the '80's, proclaiming "Alpha PHi Alpha, the Light of the World, forever we will hold it high!"

odelphi u Once again Theta Epsilon, first in Eastern Region in both membership and money paid to Million Dollar Drive, is busy following our Fraternity's motto, "First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All." Thus far this year we've already started off with donating a total of fourteen hundred dollars toward the following: lecturer David Diaz, the Higher Educational Opportunity Program, the Theta Epsilon Charity Fund and the Million Dollar Drive. Our first function was a benefit basketball game and disco in which over $2,000 was raised and will go toward the functioning of our chapter.

Theta Epsion has also been busy attending conferences and conventions. Over the summer Brothers Aki Debayo, Bruce Jones and Bobby Thomas attended the 1 980 National Convention in Chicago. On October 4 Brothers Jeff Lee and Robert Davidson attended the Eastern Regional Shirtsleeve Conference in Philadelphia. Finally on October 1 7-19 Brothers Damyn Kelly, Jeff Lee, Clinton Watkis and Devin Delisser took part in the New York State Convention. While attending these meetings the chapter gained much knowledge in terms of national and local matters. The Brothers of Theta Epsilon are also holding various leadership roles on the Adelphi campus; those Brothers holding positions are: Bert Hunter, Chairman of the Student Activities Board Lectures Committee; Clinton Watkis, Treasurer of the Inter-Fraternity Council; Damyn Kelly, Sports Editor of the Student Paper (The Delphian); Mark Strachan, President of the Union of Black Collegians. Others holding leadership positions are: Jeff Lee, Resident Assistant; Mike McClellan, President of the Higher Educational Opportunity Program and Bobby Thomas, disc jockey and engineer on WBAU, the campus radio station. Through our many accomplishments Theta Epsilon is very busy following the aims and ideals of our great Fraternity.

delaware After having hosted perhaps the best Eastern Regional Convention ever this past April, the Brothers of Gamma Theta Lambda have launched another of its vigorous programs. This year's officers are: Warren A. Scott, President; John O. Simpson, Vice-President; Howard P. Cooper, Secretary; Kenneth V. Hilton, Treasurer; William S. Young, Jr., Parliamentarian; and Kirby Kirksey, Associate Editor-to-the-Sphinx. Our social programs include the annual New Year's Eve Dance (to which all of the Brothers on the East Coast are invited), Founder's Day Services, basketball outings, and at the end of the operating year, the Black and Gold Ball. Each of these events has been the toast of the town when it was presented before. We intend that they will remain so this year. We are equally proud of our public affairs programming. During the recent hearings on the redistricting of the New Castle County School District, we made a presentation before the State Board of Education in opposition to this plan. The ongoing tutorial program at the West End Neighborhood Center has expanded. Additionally, individual The Sphinx / Winter 1980

Brothers are tutoring students outside this formal structure. On the political front, we are trying to resolve the conflicts between two of the local state representatives, without the glare and rancor of the local media. Projects to aid the Layton Home for the Aged and the Voter Registration Drive were funded and enjoyed success with our support. Xi Omicron, the college chapter at the University of Delaware, is moving forward. Through our efforts, the chapter is nearing approval as a colony; full status as a fraternity will come in 1 9 8 1 . We see a bright joint future ahead for Xi Omicron and Gamma Theta Lambda.

Virginia state college Beta Gamma Chapter extends to all Brothers in Alphaland warm greetings in the true fraternal spirit. Situated on the historic campus of Virginia State University, Beta Gamma was founded on December 2 2 , 1 9 2 6 . Presently our chapter has 17 Brothers who are constantly striving to "hold the light high." Beta Gamma initiated two lines during the past year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; "The Coming of the New Breed," Fall 7 9 ; and "The Clones," Spring '80. These lines produced four and five Brothers respectively. We now have ten fine little Brothers who will soon see the light of Alpha. They have been amply named "The Everlasting Ten." At Beta Gamma, Brothers are vigorously involved in campus and community activities. These include the Student Government Association, tutorial programs, honor societies, rest home visitations, Toys for Tots, Special Olympics and working with underprivileged children. Several Brothers have earned scholarships and they all view academic excellence as their primary objective. On September 2 8 , 1 9 8 0 , Beta Gamma held its 54th Annual Smoker and its 1 st Annual Banquet and Awards Program. The banquet directly preceded the Smoker and was utilized to recognize graduate Brothers for their service to Alpha and the university. The guest speaker for the Smoker was Brother Bobby Scott of the Virginia House of Delegates. We were especially honored to have two of our founders, Brothers Henry Colson Jackson and Morgan J. Edwards, among the many Brothers in attendance. Chapter officers for this year are: Jeffrey Powell, President; Mark Conley, Vice-President; Joseph Suber, Secretary; Ronald Thomas, Corresponding Secretary; Robert Wright, Treasurer; Samuel Richardson, Historian; John Elliott, Parliamentarian; The Sphinx / Winter 1980

boston university The Brothers of Sigma Chapter would like to extend a warm fraternal greeting to all of our Alpha Brothers. Located in the greater Boston area, Sigma Chapter has been in existence since 1 9 1 5 . Since the existence of our noble fraternity, community service has always been a tradition of all Alpha men. This tradition lives on with the Brothers of Sigma Chapter. Our first community project this school year dealt with the Big Brothers Association. The chapter helped the Big Brothers Association with their skate-a-thon. We will also be working with the youngsters in such things as tutorial services and just plain companionship. Young people are the future leaders of this world; for this reason the Brothers will be venturing into the high schools. Our objective will be to express upon the minds of our young brothers and sisters the importance of an education. If we don't help our own, who will? This year, as in the past, we will be distributing Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter baskets to needy families in the Boston area. Coming up in February we will be holding our job fair, bringing many of the corporations and businesses from the Boston and New England area to the campus of Boston University. With unemployment and economics going the way they are, many of the Brothers felt a need to bring e m p l o y e r s closer to the students. The Brothers of Sigma Chapter would like to take this time to welcome our new Brothers into that cherished land of Alphadom, Nisusendure II and Mahogany VI. During the Spring Quarter the chapter also elected new officers. The officers for 1980-81 are: John Davis, President; Karey Statin, Vice-President; Leon Harrison, Jr., Treasurer; Jean Celestin, Jr., Financial Secretary; Simeon Euell, Business Manager; Aftern Sanderson, Jr., Recording and Corre-

sponding Secretary; Kenneth Stith, Jr., Historian and Sergeant-At-Arms; and Brian Douglas, Editor-to-the-Sphinx. As the year continues we wish all our Brothers success and happiness in all of their endeavors.

and since then have truly held Alpha's light high. In 1979, we were the largest undergraduate chapter in the nation, and currently, we are still proud to say that we are among the top ten chapters as far as having the most active members. This year has already proven to be one of the most productive for Theta Nu. Our activities for the semester were initiated by the successful execution of a fund-raising road race. The project, the James R. Clark Sickle Cell Anemia Road Race, was directed by Brother Gerald Stewart and spearheaded on September 27. We are extremely proud of the outcome of the race and hope to make it an annual event.

mississippi state u Nowhere does the light of Alpha shine brighter than in the hearts of the Brothers of Kappa Beta Chapter. It is with this fact in mind that we extend a most hearty greeting to all Alpha men â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kappa Beta Style! Kappa Beta is an exciting chapter, full of zest and enthusiasm. We are relatively small in number (only 15), but this is not so obvious to the casual observer. Kappa Betans can be found in 90% of all predominantly Black organizations and the number in general student organizations continues to grow. Brothers who are officers in campus organmizations are: Brother Robert Marks, President of Council of Black Student Organizations and President of Kappa Beta; Brother Michael Lee, President of Greek Association, Chairman of Inter-Fraternity Council of Informal Rush Committee, and VicePresident of Kappa Beta; Brother Aaron Harris, President of Afro-American Plus, Vice-President of the Society of Black Engineers; Brother Barry Brown, Director of the Black Voices, Secretary of the Council for Black Student Organizations, first Black to be appointed to MSU's election commission, and Secretary of Kappa Beta; Brother Ralph Crockett, Greek Association treasurer. Other organizations in which Alpha is represented are: Bio-chemistry club,

Reveille staff, Reflector staff, Communications club, Senate committees, school band, NAACP, MSU basketball team, Hall councils, ROTC, Society of Black Artists, and several honorary and professional fraternities. Acolades from previous service projects which Kappa Beta has performed for community and campus residents are an incentive and spur the Brothers towards greater service. Current projects include: Adopt-afriend Program with the Rolling Hills Nursing Home, Tutorial service with area high schools, the restoration of a historic Black cemetery, Big Brother program, food baskets at holidays, blood donations, voter registration, hosts for State NAACP Convention and sponsoring the Miss Black Starkville pageant. One of the highlights of the school year was the election of the first Black in the 101-year history of Mississippi State to the Homecoming court. The influence and support demonstrated by the Brothers during the election campaign on campus was a catalyst in Miss Maggie Seawood's election as sophomore maid. Our own candidate, Patricia Randolph, lost the election for senior maid by a mere seven votes. While Kappa Beta is only five years old, the Brothers have excelled in nearly every area within the fraternity and the university. Some major accomplishments: Hosted 1976 State Convention, $1,025 donation to Million Dollar Fund Drive, State Chess Championship, Regional Scholarship Award Winner, Intramural sports championship, three commissioned officers in Army ROTC. Our annual Miss Black and Gold pageant is the toast of the campus.

The pageant has grown enormously since its very first presentation. In addition, a scholarship is presented at each pageant to the Black student with the highest G.P.A. for that semester. The Brothers also enjoy displaying their creative skills in entertainment. The Brothers of Kappa Beta are renown for their dynamic performances in Stepdowns. We have competed in various Greek shows throughout the state and region and we've been very successful. Even though Kappa Beta is a young chapter, we are firmly bound to the path of Alpha. We stand proud of our accomplishments, but not complacent. We will continue to hold high the ideals of Alpha while striving for excellence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kappa Beta style.

tougaloo college The Brothers of Gamma Upsilon Chapter, along with the other undergraduate Brothers, begin another school year. With the academic season starting, Gamma Upsilon is in the process of formulating a structure that will contribute to building a stronger chapter. We are familiar with the duties placed upon each Alphaman. And we intend to, through constructive determination, reflect these characteristics so that our image of respectability is influenced on the minds of others. A great task indeed, yet we shall accomplish our goal. In essence, we feel to achieve progress one must have good leadership. A new phase is taken into the hearts and souls of each Brother at Gamma Upsilon. We have taken on new ways of modifying the problems that have crippled us in the past which were pertaining to pledging. We sought advice to modify these problems from the National Chapter and also from some graduate Brothers, and special credit for advice is placed on last year's advisor to Gamma Upsilon, Brother Walter Davis. We maintain these modifications by keeping in mind, "Everyone loves a cheerful worker." This is not a cliche but a practical means of ensconcing us, as individuals, in the career position we long for. With the diligent working of each Brother, Gamma Upsilon shall launch new projects while we have the courage of our convictions. The Brothers of Gamma Upsilon continue to dream, aspire, and dare to reach for a star. In closing, we can assure you, if anything, Gamma Upsilon has learned that yesterday's "I can't" can become today's "I can." The Sphinx / Winter 1980

We find it extremely difficult to stress how the true spirit of the fraternity is guiding our thoughts and ruling our hearts, but from 1980 throughout eternity we will through God remain dedicated to the cause and Motto of the fraternity. Since the outstanding "18 KT. Gold" line has crossed the sands and leaped into Alpha land, a new fraternal and chapter outlook has taken place. Our chapter is now enriched and enhanced with Brothers who will constantly strive to become "First of all, Servants of all, and Transcend all." We currently have over 30 Brothers in our chapter, including a life member who is also Assistant Vice-President of South West Region (Eddie Mason). We have Brothers in practically every aspect of campus life, as well as every aspect of involvement into the fraternity. Our new officers for the year 1980-81 are as follows: Walter Lewis, President; Leonardo Lucier, VicePresident; Jaun Walker, Secretary; Darius D. Elam, Correspondence Secretary; Reginald Lee, Treasurer; Russell Singleton, Historian; Rev. Michael James, Chaplain; Eddie Mason, Parliamentarian; Gary Olgesby, Editor-to-theSphinx; Carl Estelle, Sergeant-At-Arms; John Bowman, Dean of Pledges; and Albert Williams, Assistant Dean of Pledges. The Brothers of Delta Theta Chapter will be continuously striving to rededicate ourselves and uphold the Goals, Dreams and Motto of Alpha Phi Alpha.

WEST California On September 19, in a memorable and moving display of Alpha brotherhood and cooperation, three chapters came together for the installation of officers. Brothers from Gamma Phi Lambda of Berkeley, Gamma Chi Lambda of San Francisco, and Kappa Omicron Lambda of Vallejo met at the Hyatt Hotel in San Francisco with their wives and sweethearts for the affair. Brother Welton Flynn as a capable Master of Ceremony and outgoing President of Gamma Chi Lambda Brother Dr. Waldense Nixon in a warm welcoming address, set the tone of togetherness. Brother Oscar Williams of Gamma Phi Lambda introduced the speaker, Brother Clinton Minnis, Western Regional Vice President. In addition to a very challenging address, Brother Minnis also swore in the newly elected officers. Brother Joe Thomas, Northern California Director, presented charters to two newly formed undergraduate

chapters: Xi Pi of California State University at Hayward and Xi Rho of San Francisco State University. Presentation of awards and certificates were made by Brothers Capers Bradham of Gamma Phi Lambda and Buford Thompson and Authur Murray of Kappa Omicron Lambda. Recognition was paid to Brothers Osby Davis, Supervisor of Solono County, Dr. William Murray, Superintendent of Schools, Emeryville, and Grandvel Jackson of San Francisco Board of Education. It was an inspirational and unprecedented affair, charged with commitment to undergraduate growth, community growth and chapter togetherness which ended with a stirring rendition of the Alpha Hymn.

southern California u A warm Alpha greeting to all Alphas everywhere from the Brothers of the Always Deadly Chapter of Alpha Delta Chapter located at the University of Southern California. The 1979-80 year has been one of the more memorable in our 59-year history and we would like to tell you about it. Under the leadership of our President, Elliott Gregory Swinton, we kicked off the year with a bang by throwing our "Season Opening Affair" on October 6, 1979. It was one of the bestever attended functions on USC's campus. We were definitely pleased with the results. One hundred dollars of the proceeds went to the Million Dollar Fund Drive. The next day, our Fall Smoker was held in the Student Activities Center. The turnout was excellent (included in the audience was three members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.) which shows men and women are interested in hearing about Alpha. Our next event was our Halloween party that we gave for a kindergarten class at the 32nd St. Elementary School. We spent a lovely afternoon with the children playing games, singing songs, eating ice cream and cake, and filling up their trick or treat bags with goodies. The children enjoyed it so much that they presented us with a gift for Thanksgiving. The majority of our time was spent on our pledge line. They were a fine group of nine gentlemen who were trying to reach the realms of Alphadom. Notable deeds which they did to so that they were worthy of becoming Alphamen were giving blood to the Red Cross, throwing a very successful bowling tournament, and also gave a combination dance-canned goods drive. They gave the canned goods to the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha 33

Sorority, Inc. to help them with their Thanksgiving Canned Foods Drive. Finally, after crossing the hot, "burning sands," Esprit De Corps" made it to Alphaland on December 9, 1979. Those chosen gentlemen were Duane E. Bridges, Santiago D. Cortez, George A. "Rusty" Cundieff, Kenneth M. Hayes, Raphael L. Henderson, Arnell S. Henson, Alexander L. Jones, Carl R. Osborne, Jr., and Albert S. Thurmond. That evening, the chapter celebrated Founder's Day activities with Beta Psi Lambda Chapter at the Hyatt House Hotel. Afterwards, the neophytes were treated to a "crossing over" party. It was a great day for all. We opened up the Spring Semester with our Sweethearts Dance given in conjunction with our sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. It was a huge success with everyone "jamming" to the maximum. Next up for us was our Spring Smoker. Again we were pleased with the turnout. One of the top highlights of the year came on March 8, 1980. Our annual Alpha Phi Alpha Sweetheart's Ball took place at the Hyatt House. We gave it in conjunction with Beta Psi Lambda. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of our Sweetheart Court of


1980. They were as follows: Katrice C. Patterson (selected Queen of the Court), Sandra J. Parker, Felecia P. Logan, Karen Zimmerman, Rhonda Brookter, Robin Thompkins and Bella Ross. It was a gala affair! Again, we were fortunate enough to have a line of nine pledge the ranks of Alpha. On May 10, 1980, "Omniscience" crossed over the "burning sands." Those nine were Steven L. Brantley, Abb Benjamin Bristo, Steven O. Butler, Deryl K. Deese, Frank Forman, Efrem Brooks, Eric L. Holoman, Count D. Mingleton, Anthony W. Willoughby. To wrap up the school year, we gave away two $100 scholarships to a deserving male and female who we felt carried out the goals of Alpha Phi Alpha in their daily student life. Individual accomplishments must also be recognized. First off, Brother Elliott G. Swinton was the recipient of three scholarships from the fraternity. He won the First Annual Brother 0. Wilson Winters Memorial Scholarship Award of $1,000. This award was given by the Brothers of Rho Chapter in memory of the First Life Member. Also he won a $500 scholarship from the Brothers of Beta Psi Lambda Chapter and most recently he was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from

the National Education Foundation of the General Organization. Congratulations are also in order to two Brothers who graduated from USC on June 4. They are Brothers Carl R. Osborne, Jr. and Harvey B. Carter. Brothers, indeed we did live up to our slogan of "Ain't No Stopping Us Now, We're On the Move." Next year, we hope to escalate to higher heights and accomplishments than we did this year. With a chapter membership of 22, these goals can be reached under our new slogan, "Alpha on the Move, We are what we Do." Our officers for 1980-81 are: Shannon Thurmond, President; Eric L. Holoman, Vice-President; Arnell S. Henson, Treasurer; Benjamin Bristo, Recording Secretary; Count D. Mingleton, Director of Educational Activities; Elliott G. Swinton, Associate Editor-to-the-Sphinx; Rusty Cundieff, Historian; Lane Williams, Parliamentarian; Ronald Bolts, Sergeant-AtArms; Frank Forman, Chaplain; and Bertram Johnson, Dean of Pledges. Brothers, we hope to be talking to you in the near future and if you are ever in the land of the Always Deadly Chapter, come check us out. We will gladly give you a friendly, fraternal welcome. Until then, keep up the good work so we can let the Light of Alpha shine all over the world.

A TRIBUTE TO BROTHER CHARLES K. ANDERSON DELTA LAMBDA CHAPTER, ALPHA PHI ALPHA FRATERNITY, INC. October 28, 1980 Brother CHARLES K. ANDERSON, Andy, as he was affectionately known to his Brothers and his friends, was a quiet, ever smiling, pleasant man. His love for Alpha ran deep. He was a loyal Brother, faithful, and ever willing to do whatever he could for the welfare of the chapter. I cannot recall his voice ever being raised in anger or irritation, even in the heat of debate. Yet his counsel was wise and his advice sound. His love for Alpha was second only to his love for his family. This he showed in the same quiet way that distinguished him. But at the mention of his beloved Ellen, or his children, his face would light up, and the love he held for them was obvious to all. Andy had a distinguished career with the Housing Authority. To his colleagues and supervisors he was knowledgeable, and most efficient as an administrator. To his tenants he was human in every sense of the word. He was not a "nine-to-five" bureaucrat. He had a personal interest in the well being of his tenants. That was his paramount concern. Evern after his retirement, although his health was not the best, he continued to work on a limited basis to make living more comfortable and meaningful for the aged. Andy was a caring person. Physically, the last few years were not easy ones for Andy. On at least two occasions he suffered serious illnesses. He had only recently recovered from one serious illness when his beloved Ellen was stricken. He suffered greatly. Yet through it all his indomitable spirit sustained him through this ordeal. To those who would question the will of the Father, it would seem almost ironic, even unfair, that less than ten months after the death of his wife he fell victim to the same dread disease. It took its toll on his body, but his spirit remained unconquerable. Andy leaves us a legacy that we will always cherish and revere: Love of one's fellow man; loyalty to that in which he believes; faithfulness to duty; and an unconquerable spirit in the face of adversity. These qualities of Andy Delta Lambda will always remember with love and respect. Brother CHARLES A. JOHNSON, age 66, entered Omega Chapter October 7, 1980 in Chicago, following a brief illness. Brother Johnson was a staunch member of Xi Lambda Chapter, and for many years served as a guiding force. He was an outstanding citizen — a loyal and devoted Brother — member of many civic and social organizations, playing an active part in all. Xi Lambda Chapter conducted Omega chapter services, October 11, 1980 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Chicago, followed by a requiem mass, interment in Oak Woods Cemetery He is survived by his wife. Viola.

Brother CLINTON EVERETT KNOX — Ex-Ambassador, entered Omega Chapter October 16, 1980 — in his home in Silver Spring, Maryland — at the age of 72; he was a member of Delta Lambda Chapter, in Baltimore, Maryland. Brother Knox had been with the State Department since October of 1945, when he was appointed a research analyst — his assignments taking him to Western Europe as Chief of Research; 1948-1955 attended the NATO Defense College; and to Honduras in 1963 as Deputy Chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy.

The Sphinx / Winter 1980

Brother Knox served as Haiti Ambassador from 1969 until his retirement in 1973. His retirement came shortly after his ordeal with Haitian terrorists Brother Knox and the U.S. Consul to Haiti were held hostage for 18 hours being released unharmed in return for a government promise to fly the gunmen, 12 political prisoners and $70,000 ransom money to Mexico Before Brother Knox's Haitian assignment, he served as ambassador to the Republic of Dahomey in West Africa. Brother Knox was a native of New Bedford, Mass. He received his Baccalaureate degree from Williams College in Williamstown, Mass. in 1930 and his Master's degree from Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island Funeral rites were held for Brother Knox October 20 from the Rock Creek Parish in Washington, DC. He is survived by his wife, Clementine two children, Karen and William; two brothers, John M. Murphy III, AfroAmerican Board of Directors Chairman and Dr. William Knox; and a sister Alberta. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful, rest in peace. On Saturday, November 29, 1 980, the Angel of Silence sealed the lips of Brother BENJAMIN F. LEVER, born to the parentage of Mr. Joseph L and Mrs. Alice Bush Lever on March 2 1 , 1 91 5 at Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Mr. Lever received his early education in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Cadet First Lieutenant of the Cadet Corps at Tuskegee Institute, Tuskegee, Alabama, the Master of Science, Master of Education and Diploma of Advanced Study at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, Arkansas.

In 1937 he was appointed to the Interstate Commerce Commission and in 1940 the late President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, appointed him Federal District Judge of the Virgin Islands.

Washington High School where he was an honor student; his secondary education was received at Benedict College, Columbia, S.C and his Baccalaureate degree received at the University of Illinois.

He was a member of Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society and the Academy of Science. He was listed in "Outstanding Educators of America." Brother McClerklin was a chemistry instructor with Richland School District No. 1, and was the current director of the Advanced Institutional Development Program at Benedict College. Brother McClerkin is survived by a loyal and devoted family and mourned by his many neighbors and friends in the community, and in particular, the Brothers of Alpha Psi Lambda Chapter Brother SAMUEL MILTON, a prominent physician, entered Omega Chapter on March 1 7, 1980 in Mexico City at the age of 76. Born in 1 904 in Washington, DC, Brother Milton received his medical degree in 1928 rom Northwestern University and began practice in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
