THE GENERAL PRESIDENT SPEAKS Dear Brother: CANCER IS AN UGLY WORD . . . but so is the disease. It's something that people don't like to talk about or even hear about. We're not trying to scare you into believing you have cancer or will ever have it. But it's something you should consider. That's why I want to remind you that the cost of cancer can be crippling. Cancer costs can quickly drain your financial reserves and leave your family without financial protection. Now our Group Insurance Administrator, the Sid Murray Agency, is offering you a Group Cancer Plan to help meet these high medical costs. We feel that this Plan (described in the brochure) will help you alleviate this burden. Our Group Cancer Plan will pay up to $60,000 in benefits directly to you. It is available to all age groups of Alpha Phi Alpha at one low premium rate. This premium does not increase with advancing age, nor do the benefits decrease. Take a few moments to think of the number of friends and relatives that you personally know who have had Cancer; this alone should be the incentive you need to provide yourself and your family with the Protection which we feel is vital in this day and time. Alpha Phi Alpha approved this Group Cancer Plan as a service to its members. So your cost is very low and your benefits are better because of our mass purchasing power and the economies of group administration. During this Charter Enrollment Period, ending October 30, all members will be accepted regardless of age, size of your families and present or past physical condition, with one exception . . . any person who now has or has ever had cancer. So, please read the enclosed brochure and drop your completed Enrollment Form in the mail today. Fraternally yours, ERNEST N. MORIAL P.S. Alpha Phi Alpha has incurred no expense in connection with this mailing. All promotional costs are paid by the Administrator and the Insurer. EDITOR'S NOTE: The subject of group insurance is of such import that we reprint here the mailing piece distributed under the Alpha banner for your protection.

OMEGA CHAPTER IN MEMORIAM Xi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has sustained another great loss in the passing of BROTHER HAROLD D. LANGRUM. Brother Langrum was one of the stalwarts of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, having spent the greater part of his Alpha life in Chicago, President of Xi Lambda Chapter, and the Theta Xi Lambda Foundation for more than ten years. He was born in Tyler, Texas — November 3rd 1901 and passed into Omega Chapter August 28, 1972 — in Phoenix Arizona. It was from his highly successful business career that Brother Langrum decided to retire and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona. During the all too-brief time that he lived there as a resident, he added his expertise and experience to the community. May his soul and the soul of all the faithful departed — rest in peace.

Since the closing of the Denver Convention — all Alpha Phi Alpha mourns the passing of the following named brothers: Brother Homer P. Cooper, Past General Treasurer of Alpha Phi Alpha. Brother James A. Franklin, of Mobile, Alabama. Brother Truman K. Gibson, Sr. Chairman Board of Directors — Supreme Life Insurance Company of America. Brother Eugene B. Perry, of Tuskegee, Alabama, and Washington D.C. Brother Bernard W. Robinson, of Roxbury, Massachusetts. Brother William Albert Robinson, of Phoenix, Arizona. Brother Thomas H. Shaw, Jr. of New York City. Brother J. Douglass Sheppard, of Baltimore, Maryland. Brother Walter H. Smith, of Atlanta, Georgia. Brother Hobart D. Williams, of Chicago, Illinois — and Erie Pennsylvania


66th Anniversary Convention of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Conies to Climactic Close The nation's oldest black Greek letter college fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha, closed its 66th Anniversary Convention July 13, 1972 at the Denver-Hilton Hotel, Denver, Colorado in a blaze of glory. Attention was focused on the theme "Elimination of the Ghetto — Continuing Goal for the Seventies." It is true that has been the theme for the last few General Conventions, the results will surely manifest themselves we hope in this decade. Aside from the usual routine of business, a new General President was duly elected, by means of mail balloting, — this being Brother Walter Washington, President of Alcorn A and M College, Lorman, Mississippi. His brothers all over the Country acclaimed him as being "WORTHY" by their ballots. He will take office January 1, 1973. Brother Ernest N. Morial, the current General President until December 31, 1972 presided over the Convention and called upon his brothers to institute voter registration drives in the various communities if the goal of the Convention is to become a reality for BLACKS in this Country, as well as for all minority groups. Brother Morial emphasized the fact that Alpha Phi Alpha through its Building Foundation, and Education Foundation is not merely giving lip service, but that since its founding, Alpha Phi Alpha has been a drum major, a leader in the black man's fight for equality, that akin to political power is economic power and that BLACKS must emphasize "green power" (money) and by so doing move into the mainstream of our present day economy. The presence of Alpha Phi Alpha was duly announced to the City of Denver by its public program in the Denver Greek Amphitheatre which was addressed by United States Representative, the Honorable Charles B. Rangel, of the 18th Congressional District, — New York. Brother Rangel stressed the point that the only power the minorities in this country have is the right to vote and political coalitions between all disadvantaged people in the nation, both elements which are necessary and can be powerful weapons in the political arena. The pictorial section of this issue of THE SPHINX, depicts some of the many activities and the many presentations and awards made, including the ones made to Falstaff Brewing Company, and received by Allen L. McKellar; — and to Brother William M. Alexander, Chairman of the Building Foundation — a public service award. Greeting the Convention, while in session, were Governor John Love, and Denver's Mayor W. H. McNichoI, Jr. who by proclamation declared July 9-15, as "Alpha Phi Alpha Week" — an action supported by City Council resolution. Other speakers of note during the Convention sessions were James O. Plinton, Jr. — Division Vice President for special marketing affairs, Eastern Airlines; Brother Robert J. Brown, Special Assistant to the President of the United States, Judge Damon J. Keith, Federal District Judge — Detroit, Michigan; — Dr. Isaac H. Bivens, Assistant General Secretary for African Affairs, the United Methodist Church of America, and Brother Eddie Robinson, head coach and athletic Director, Grambling Louisiana.

James O. Plinton was the keynoter for the Equal Opportunities Luncheon at which time the "Equitable Opportunities Award" was presented to All State Insurance Company for "Dedication and Services to Alpha Phi Alpha Employment Bank." U. S. District Judge Keith, and Dr. Bivens appeared on panel on "Human Rights and Responsibilities" — charging that many BLACK leaders have not been telling black people the whole truth, — that merely to tell black people about the problems of housing, poverty and poor educational opportunities is not enough, but that we all have to work with them to solve these problems. He stated further that black people cannot be objective unless our leadership tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Other outstanding events at the Convention included the Life Membership breakfast, with Brother John D. Buckner, master of ceremonies; the Founder's Day breakfast that was addressed by Brother William M. Alexander, and the Fraternal Luncheon, with the Assistant Eastern Vice President, Brother Stephen S. Johnson, IV the principal speaker. It is well to note that more than forty companies, representatives of labor and governmental agencies and armed forces conducted daily job interviews, which were open to college seniors and graduates as well. Brother Ather Williams of Xi Lambda chapter, Chicago, — was chairman of this Equitable Employment Opportunity committee. Brother Williams stated that this Committee was formed to spearhead a nationwide program to make the "INTEGRATED" company concept a reality for black Americans and other minorities. General President Morial declared the 66th Anniversary Convention concluded at the conclusion of the Formal Banquet, which was preceeded by the installation of elected Officers, and the presentation of the newly elected General President — Brother Walter Washington — who will take over the helm January 1, 1973.

Some Convention Highlights . . . As Seen By Brother Kermit Hall Director of General Conventions EMPHASIS IN 1972 — "Elimination Of The Ghetto: — Continuing Goals for the Seventies" 1. The General Conventions continue to grow as "family conventions." More than 1200 Alpha and their families registered at the Denver Convention. 2. Alpha Phi Alpha makes history with its program of Job Recruitment sponsored through its Committee on Equitable Opportunities Employment. Approximately 100 recruiters from the nation's largest corporations attended the 66th Anniversary Convention seeking qualified employees among delegates and from the Denver community. 3. Alpha Phi Alpha's 1972 convention seminars stressed affirmative action and objectives in the areas of Housing and the Environment, Employment, Health and Education. 4. The Education Foundation continued its programs in 3


Chapter Project Development and Alpha Outreach. 5. The Building Foundation announced at the 1972 Denver convention new housing developments in Dayton, Ohio and Detroit, Michigan. 6. The Special Plenary Session of the 1972 convention addressed itself to Human Rights and Responsibilities. 7. College Brothers were active participants in the 1972 convention presenting discussions and recommendations in the areas of undergraduate housing, chapter programs, undergraduate-alumni relations and scholarship aid. The College Brothers Luncheon was a "sell out," and one of the main features of the convention. 8. Alpha Phi Alpha continues to recognize achievement in all fields of human endeavors. 1972 Recognitions Awards went to All State Insurance Company and Falstaff Brewing Corporation for their outstanding equal employment policy records. 9. Recognition was given to the chapter represented at the 1972 convention from the greatest distance. This honor went to Eta Epsilon Lambda of Monrovia, Liberia. 10. The most outstanding social events were the Ladies Luncheon-Fashion Show, Alpha Phi Alpha Formal Banquet and "Festival Africana." 11. The 67 Anniversary Convention will be in New Orleans, Louisiana August 5-10, 1973. Brother Walter Washington will preside.

Revitalize Omicron Lambda Beta At Champaign, Illinois Brother James R. Williams, Midwestern Vice President is glad to announce the "resurrection" of Omicron Lambda Beta chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha in Champaign, Illinois. Omicron Lambda Beta chapter was established in Champaign, at the seat of the University of Illinois January 20, 1954, at approximately the same time Omicron Lambda Alpha chapter was established at Howard University, in Washington, D.C. It was at that time INTERMEDIATE CHAPTERS were authorized — and since that time the term "intermediate" has been abolished, and these two chapters assumed the role of ALUMNI chapters. Omicron Lambda Beta has remained dormant from June 1955 until September 20, 1972 — when eleven (11) stalwart brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha, doing graduate work at the University of Illinois, decided that the chapter should not remain dormant, and re-activated this fine chapter, which all Alphadom welcomes again. The moving force in this reactivation is Brother Phillip Daniel — his supporters are Brothers Ernest Blanden, W. G. D. Henderson; Thomas Moyer, Robert Norwood, Freeman Hrabowski, Leonard Osborne; James Casey; Eddie Palmer; Wilbur Rich.

The Role of the Vice President in Undergraduate Housing The greatest demand for undergraduate chapter housing is among those chapters located at predominately white schools. Some institutions require that a chapter must occupy a fraternity house as a condition for being recognized as a bona-fide organization by the university. Such houses usually can be owned or leased. A few institutions provide houses (e.g., Southern Illinois University) for Greek Letter Organizations. Some institutions own rental units that are available to organizations. However, on the majority of the campuses it is the responsibility of the organization to acquire housing from local owners. In my opinion, the Vice-President has an important role to play in assisting undergraduate chapters to secure adequate housing: He also serves as a liaison person between the chapter and the National Building Foundation. The preliminary investigation relative to the availability of housing should be conducted by the local chapter. Based on the proximity of the Regional Director, the local chapter should solicit his assistance during this exploratory stage. After potential houses have been identified, the chapter should contact the Vice-President. It is highly desirable for the Vice-President to visit the campus for the purpose of conferring with university officials, house owners, and Brothers in the chapter. He should be concerned with the following factors: a. Whether the house will meet all requirements and/or regulations of the university. b. To check the terms of the lease to ascertain if its terms are "fair."

determine if the chapter is economically capable operating the house. Type of telephone service. Whether food service will be provided. Adequate insurance coverage. Election of House Manager. Establishment of house rules and regulations. Contractual arrangement between chapter and occupants of house. 7. Establishment of adequate bookkeeping system. 8. Appointment of a graduate advisor. Subsequent to this preliminary visit to the campus, the Vice-President may deem it advisable to request the Chairman of the Housing Foundation, or his representative, to accompany him on another visit to the campus for a further appraisal of the real estate. All contracts should be submitted to the General Counsel for his evaluation. At this point, the Vice-President should determine the nature and extent of the assistance desired from the housing Foundation by the chapter. He should assist the chapter in preparing the Application to the Housing Foundation. The chapter should submit its Application to the Vice-President, who will forward it to the Housing Foundation with his recommendation. The Vice-President has a continuing responsibility, working with the chapter, Regional Director, graduate advisor. and university officials in assisting the chapter to assure that the housing operation is a success.


Judge Sidney Jones Comments on Two Barred Olympians Judge Sidney A. Jones, Jr. — Judge — Circuit Court, Cook County, Illinois had this to say about the recently barred Olympians:

"However, it seems to me that any young person who has this feeling should not elect to represent the United States in international competition before the world.

"I sympathize with the two fine black Olympic Athletes — V1NCE MATTHEWS, and WAYNE COLLETT of the United States who won first and second place medals in the 400 meter race and during the presentation ceremonies failed to show proper respect for their country's flag and anthem. Their conduct was such that the International Olympic Committee banned them from other races in the 1972 Olympics and from all future Olympics.

"Personally, I suffered racial discrimination and insults as one who grew up in the State of Georgia and lived there until I was of age. I saw and experienced indignities, insults and discriminations that Vince Matthews and Wayne Collect never dreamed of, and cannot even imagine. But, in recent years, I have lived to see tremendous improvements in conditions in the South. Nevertheless, there is still much to be done to remove inequalities; and there is still much that young blacks have to complain and protest about.

"While this punishment appears severe, it is tragic that these exceptional young men, physically and mentally, have no apparent love or appreciation for their country's symbols. "It is a sad day for a country when two of its outstanding young citizens, products of its public schools and universities feel that the National Anthem is not meant for them because of their race. I feel deep sorrow for our country because it has treated its black minority in such a way that these young men are compelled to conclude that the National Anthem does not move or inspire them, nor merit their respect.

"However, I am moved when I see the flag go up and I feel deep sense of well-being when I hear the national anthem. This is my country. This is the only country I know. I refuse to be a "man without a country" I pledge to try to make this country right when it is not right. The words of the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag and the words of the National Anthem may be ideals to be reached rather than the expression of existing reality, but we can still recite them and sing them in that spirit."

A New Look at Man . . . "Ancestors Were Black" NEW YORK (UPI) — The way Dr. C. Loring Brace interprets anthropological evidence "the ancestors of all modern men were probably what in America today is called black." The interpretation was his part of a survey of "the state of the species," meaning homo sapiens. His part was to trace our origins. He got the assignment because he is an anthropologist — curator of physical anthropology at the University of Michigan. Brace's evidence consists of fossilized bones, some "hominid" or near-human, and fashioned stone chips used by very ancient manlike creatures as tools. Some "hominid" bones are believed to be about 4,000,000 years old. Reasoning from this evidence, Brace suggested that man had his origins in Africa over a period of at least 4,000,000 years and his original coloration was established through one of a number of "cultural adaptations" that permitted him to rise from an ape stage. This was the adaptation that allowed him to make his main living by hunting and devouring animals. Being a primate, he was relatively night-blind (primates, including man, are even now), and could hunt only by day. That was strenuous for a tropical animal and man "was faced with the problem of dissipating metabolically generated heat," Brace interpreted. Man solved it by evolving "the hairless human skin, richly endowed with sweat glands."

But the loss of a hairy coat exposed him "to the potentially damaging effect of the ultra-violet component of tropical sunlight. The obvious response was the development of "melanin," which is the natural protective pigment that makes skin black or near-black. This evolutionary process by natural selection, according to Brace's calculations, was completed a little less than 1,000,000 years ago. Anthropology is confused over what to call this creature. Brace called him "Pithecanthropine" man. "The conversion of this being into what is technically known as homo sapiens requires only the further expansion of the brain from the Pithecanthropine average of 1,000 cubic centimeters, which is actually within the range of modern variation, to the average today of 1,400 cubic centimeters," Brace said. "Fragmentary fossil evidence suggests that this transition had taken place by about 120,000 years ago." From the emergence of man in his Pithecanthropine and then in his Neanderthal form, "human evolution has been characterized by a series of reductions," Brace continued. "Whenever human ingenuity made life easier, there was a relaxation of the forces of selection, and these reductions followed. "More effective hunting techniques, and an eventual reduction in muscularity was the result." 5

Only one of the proposals was approved by the General Convention, as recommended by the Committee: AMEND BY-LAW 4.5 to read: The LIFE MEMBERSHIP FEE shall be two hundred dollars. The entire fee shall be paid to and received by the General Office within two Fraternity fiscal years. For the purpose of this paragraph, the Grand Tax for the year in which the final payment of Life Membership Fee is paid may be credited to said payment of the Life Membership Fee. 1972 ALPHA LIFE MEMBER CRUSADE Under the dynamic leadership of Brother John D. Buckner, the 1972 Alpha Life Member Crusade went over the top in every region. The goal set was for 200 new partici-


from the desk of Laurence T. Young, Executive Secretary pants — 525 were reported; the goal set for 1,000 Life Members was exceeded, as of this date we have 1,035 fully paid Life Members. We now have a total of over 1,500 participating in the program. EQUITABLE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES An outstanding feature of the Convention was the participation of over thirty great Corporations of the Country, assembled with displays and representatives recruiting personnel. The Committee is formed to spearhead a nationwide program to make the "integrated" company concept a reality for Black Americans and other minorities. The Committee is concerned with Equitable Employment of the Black Community in all phases of the management structure, and wants foremost to assist in the placement of qualified Black professionals in managerial positions and to dispel the myth that there are not any qualified Blacks, and to make the Equitable Employment Bank a vital part of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. DID YOU KNOW THAT: At the recent Conference of the A. M. E. Church, eight (8) bishops were elected and that ALL E I G H T are brothers in Alpha Phi Alpha. To be noted is the elevation to the Bishhopric of Brother Frank Madison Reid, Jr., the son of our beloved Bishop Frank Madison Reid who was entered into OMEGA chapter December 1962. The eight newly elected Bishops are: Brother Richard Allen Hildebrand, assigned to the Georgia area; Brother John H. Adams, assigned to the Texas area; Brother H. H. Brookin, assigned to Africa; Brother Vinto Anderson, assigned to the Alabama area; Brother S. S. Morris, Jr. (Life Member) assigned to the Arkansas area; Brother Frank Madison Reid, Jr. assigned to Africa; Brother Frederick H. Talbot, assigned to New Guinea; and Brother Frederick C. James, assigned to Africa. It is also to be noted that these eight newly elected Bishops now join the ranks of two other Alpha Phi Alpha AME Bishops — Brother Frederick Douglass Jordan, and Brother Henry W. Murph. In this connection, attention is called to the fact that at the recent convocation in Mobile, Alabama of the A.M.E. Church — another Bishop was elected who is also a brother in Alpha Phi Alpha and loved by us all dearly — Brother J. Clinton Hoggard, who for many years was our Convention Chaplain. Our good brother DAVID N. HOWELL retired March 31, after 47 years of YMCA service — Monrovia, Liberia where he and his family arrived in 1949. There he was assigned the task of pioneering a new YMCA. Today from a meager beginning, — no tools, no equipment, no trained staff, no nothing — he erected a building which stands as a monument to him, a leading youth organization, with the only modern indoor gymnasium in West Africa. At the Denver Convention, recently adjourned, the Eastern Region of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, donated a LIFE MEMBERSHIP to Brother Paul Robeson. This presentation was followed shortly thereafter by the National Urban

League's presentation to Brother Robeson of the Whitney M. Young Memorial Award. It is interesting to note that Paul Robeson, Jr. is now a duly initiated brother in Alpha Phi Alpha, and a subscriber to the Life Membership Crusade. WORTH OF A COLLEGE DEGREE What is a college degree worth? One estimate: Earnings of about $59,000.00 more in their life times than high school graduates earn. But there is more than higher income to it. Researchers also found that college graduates hold jobs with few accident risks, fewer physical demands, and generally more stimulation and satisfaction. THE GRAND TAX PERIOD FOR 1973 IS UPON US. This is due and payable on or before November 15, 1972. Hurry — Get your Grand Tax in! College brothers $10.00 — Alumni brothers $20.00. 1973 GENERAL PRESIDENT The old order changeth — giving place to the new. On January 1, 1973 — the TWENTY FOURTH General President of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. will be inducted into office — BROTHER WALTER WASHINGTON, President of Alcorn A and M College, Lorman, Mississippi. All men of Alpha are awaiting his "take over" and pledge their hearty support and co-operation. Brother Washington enjoys the enviable position of, actively KNOWING the Fraternity from the grass roots — every facet of it, the hopes, desires, ambitions, personalities and what have you he knows them, and stands ready, willing and able to deal with all of them, — forthrightly. PAUL ROBESON LIBRARY OF AFRICAN RESOURCES OPENS Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity wholeheartedly supports the efforts of Psi Chapter, and the other chapters in the Pennsylvania area in efforts made to support the W.E.B. DuBois Residence Center on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania — and the attempt being made to include the entire Black student community in the many proposed activities. The General Office received the following letter from Brother James R. Johnson: Brothers: In September of this year, the W.E.B. DuBois Residence Center opened its doors on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. The residence houses approximately one-fourth of the freshmen and sophomore classes of brothers and sisters in its physical framework. However, it attempts by various methods to include the entire Black student community in its range of programs and activities. Among programs emanating from DuBois Center, is the Paul Robeson Library of African Resources. During this past summer over 350 titles were procured from students now residing in the center. As we know, fraternities and sororities have and continue to play a vital role in the total makeup of our life style. Therefore we feel it necessary to have adequate information concerning the fraternities and sororities in our library. We are requesting that you forward a copy of the history of Alpha Phi Alpha, and also any other information concerning the organization that might be helpful in our quest for knowledge and understanding toward freedom.

ST. LOUIS PIONEERS AGAIN

The passing of Bro. John Mercer Langston in St. Louis October 9, 1972 presents a void in the history of our great American Negroes. Mr. Langston, age 93, was born December 10, 1879. It is well to remember that Mr. Langston not only made great contributions in and around St. Louis, but throughout the Country as well. He was the grandson of a Congressman from Virginia — back in the days of reconstruction almost. He was a graduate of Oberlin College, — a third generation there, and was the recipient of a Phi Beta Kappa key from Oberlin College, (Ohio) at a time when this accomplishment was remarkable, of course it is rather common in our present day. He served for many years as instructor and later as principal of Summer High School in St. Louis. He will be long remembered in this generation as well as generations yet to come.

Hold First Banquet For Life Members Many years ago the brothers of Epsilon Lambda Chapter in Saint Louis stopped competing for outstanding chapter awards because of the simple fact that they would retire the cup each year. They have started such well known firsts as the Alpha Garden Apartments, the Alpha Mothers' Day Program and their pluralistic roster of chapter activities during the year. President Ronald Smiley explains the chapter's varied program approach as a resultant of their 100 plus life members who must be satisfied with many chapter activities as components of the total program. Last June, two weeks before the Denver General Convention, St. Louis launched another pioneer program that proved to be an instant success when all Alpha life members in the St. Louis area were invited to a stag banquet held at the new Marriott Hotel.

Good fellowship banquet.

was the "order of the day'

The invitation to "vittles and squeezins" had the magic ring as 56 men from East St. Louis and St. Louis joined in that special fellowship of a "life members only" environment. Executive Secretary, Laurence Young presented the new Life Members Recognition Pins and reported the success of the 1972 Life Membership Crusade. The affable, fashion plate, orator — Judge Bennie J. Harris, Southern Vice President, came from Chattanooga and presented a witty and erudite address equal to the occasion. Brother Harris described what a commitment "for life" really meant to the fraternity. You can bet that a "life members only" activity will be on the St. Louis program for years to come. Here is an idea for your chapter, too.

Akron U. Speech Professor Receive! Chapter Award Dr. Wallace Sterling, assistant professor of speech at The University of Akron, has received the distinguished service awards, "Black is Gold," from the Akron U. chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. The award was presented at the fraternity's annual banquet by George W. Durden, president of the chapter. Durden, of 1034 Madison St., Brooklyn, N. Y., is a senior business major. Each year, the award is presented to the person on campus who, in the fraternity's judgment, had done the most for black students during that year. Dr. Sterling, associate director of the University of Akron Theatre, was chosen for his work in directing the University's first play focusing on black people. The play, "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men" by Lonne Elder III, was staged in November. Sterling was presented with a certificate, and his name was added to a plaque bearing the names of previous winners. The plaque is on permanent display at the Alpha Phi Alpha house at 376 Theodore St., Akron.

Alpha Phi at Clark College Moves Forward By: Bro. Tyrone Terry Brother Frank Johnson, of Alpha Phi Chapter — Clark College, Atlanta, Georgia gathered valuable experience in mass communications this summer while in Yugoslavia. His trip was made possible by a scholarship granted from the Foreign Language Department of Clark College and the University of Michigan. Brother Tyrone Terry also worked in mass communications this summer, and won an internship with the VirginiaPilot newspaper in Norfolk, Virginia, where he was engaged as a reporter. In Psychology, Brother Lucius Brown, Jr. won a scholarship to attend the University of South Carolina, majoring in history and systems of psychology. Other brothers of Alpha Phi chapter attended summer school many achieving a 4.0 average. Six brothers returned to school before classes began in order to aid preparing the freshman group for college life. Brothers Augustus Jones, Jr., Richard Randolph, Robert Coefield, Larry Hardy, Frank Johnson and Tyron Terry held leadership positions in Clark College's Freshman Orientation Program. '

Three brothers also hold offices in the Clark College Band, namely Allen Ward, President, Eddie Farmer, Vice President, and Alvin Hamilton, Sergeant at arms. The Junior class has Michael Wright as President, Louis Sims as Vice-President and Alvin Hamilton as Treasurer. In the Senior class — Eddie Farmer is Vice President, Allen Ward is business manager, and Larry Hardy is judicial council representative. One of the first greetings many freshmen received at Clark was the exhibition of a huge black and gold Alpha Phi Alpha welcoming sign strung across the academic building by the Brothers. The first major activity of the chapters was its coronation of "Miss Alpha Phi" who is Judith Stokes, and her attendants — Ann Lot and Althea Turk, and "Miss Sweetheart" — Catherine Hughes, — this event took place October 6th. The newly elected president of the chapter is Brother John White, who expects a very active and rewarding year for Alpha Phi, and increased participation as it relates to the surrounding community. Plans are also being laid to host the Georgia State Convention of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity in January 1973

Brother Durant Named New Jersey School Head Bro. Charles H. Durant III, son of a Stamford policeman, has been appointed superintendent of the New Brunswick, N. J. public school system, it was announced recently. Bro. Durant, a Stamford native, was one of the several candidates named by educators to succeed former schools Supt. Joseph B. Porter, more than a year ago. After serving as executive director of Stamford's Human Rights Commission, Durant moved to Providence, R. I., in 1968 to accept a similar position there. In 1970 he was selected as deputy superintendent of the Providence schools system. Bro. Durant's writing has appeared in several professional educational publications such as the New Eng22

land Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development and in the 1971 yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education. A 1957 graduate of Stamford High School, he was president of the sophomore class and during his senior year president of the Student Council. During his high school days he was a nationallyranked high school half-miler, and awarded a complete four-year scholarship to Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa. Bro. Durant received a B.A. degree from Drake University in 1961, his M.S. degree in secondary education from the University of Bridgeport in 1965, the equivalency of a sixth year degree in Educational Administration from Har-

vard University in 1970, and will receive his Doctorate in Education from Harvard within the 1972-73 school year. While working in Stamford Bro. Durant taught social studies from 1962-65 at Cloonan and Turn-of-River Jr. High Schools. Initially, he combined teaching with youth work at the Southfield Neighborhood Center. During his boyhood days he lived in Southfield Village, attending Stevens elementary school and Cloonan School.


Magnificent Year for Delta lota Lambda Chapter At Columbus, Georgia 1971-72 was a very good year — in fact a magnificent year for the brothers of Delta Iota Lambda Chapter under the dynamic presidency of Brother John W. Childs. The chapter became financially sound and closed the year with the largest surplus in the history of the Chapter. Founders' Day celebration was a joint affair with Gamma Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, and was indeed the social event of the year in Columbus. A new college chapter — Theta Beta — has been recently established at Columbus College and at this early stage has made its influence felt not only on the campus, but in the community. The Alphabettes were organized and fostered many worthwhile programs in the local community. A short run down of the chapter activity indicates that five brothers received 25 year membership certificates in the Fraternity; — Brother Herman E. Glaze was honored by the chapter as well as the Southern Regional Convention. The "Service to Mankind Award" was given to Andrew B. Speed. Brother Lorenzo R. Manns received a recent promotion, to which he was entitled. Scholarships and Smokers were features honoring local outstanding high school graduates; financial support was given to many community organizations. These are but a few of our accomplishments for the year — a year of greater involvement in our community. Brothers of Delta Iota Lambda are on the "GO" in Columbus, Georgia. Brother Eddie T. Lindsey is the newly elected president of the chapter, and bigger as well as better things are yet to come.

established at Columbus College would be Alpha Phi Alpha. The endless procession of so many "impossible tasks" which has characterized our fraternity down through the years demanded no less. Brothers of Delta Iota Lambda Chapter which sponsored this new undergraduate chapter consider it their most important accomplishment in the past five years. The following college brothers — twenty two strong — are the Charter Members of Theta Beta Chapter: Emory Alexander Isham Alexander Willie Butler Richard H. Carruthers Lewis Davis Robert Gist Richard Holmes, II Leroy James, Jr. Howard Johnson Albert Lanier, Jr. Matthew Lewis

Marcus Moring Daniel Morton Coy Paschail, Jr. Marvin Patrick George E. Pope, III William A. Powell Roy Prescott John D. Reid Alfred Stewart Henry Thomas Eugene Washington

THETA BETA CHAPTER FOUNDED

(Right) Brother Herman E. Glaze

After two years and ten months of what many thought was an impossible task, a new college chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. was established at Columbus College in Columbus, Georgia. The dearth of a representative black population at the formerly all white college frustrated efforts in establishing a chapter of our fraternity for over two years. It was no question, however, that the first predominately black fraternity

Delta Iota Lambda Chapter's Man of the Year Award went to Brother Herman E. Glaze. Brother Glaze is Dean of Pledgees of his chapter, and was chairman for the establishment of an undergraduate chapter — Theta Beta — at Columbus College in Columbus, Georgia. Brother Glaze is a five year veteran of the U. S. Air Force. He is a graduate of Alabama A & M University with a B.S. degree in Behavioral Science. His M.A. degree in Guidance and Counseling was received from Tennessee State University with post graduate study at George Peabody College. Presently, Brother Glaze is Counselor at one of the local high schools. Brother Glaze is a member of several social and professional organizations. He is pictured above being presented a plaque by Bro. Lorenzo R. Manns. 23

Bynum, Financial Secretary; Dr. Solon Bryant, Historian; Lorenzo R. Manns, Secretary; Dr. M. Delmar Edwards; Troy M. McCall, Vice-President. "ANDREW B. SPEED CITED BY DELTA IOTA LAMBDA CHAPTER" Culminating their Founders' Day Observance, Mr. Andrew B. Speed was presented the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity "Service To Mankind Award" for his outstanding community service. Mr. Speed is Vice-President of the Georgia Power Company; President of the Columbus, Georgia Urban League; Past President of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce; Campaign Director of United Givers.

For the past few years Gamma Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Delta Iota Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. have been jointly celebrating their Founders' Day in three days of activities which have become the envy of the total community. Founders' Day observance for these two organizations commenced on Friday evening with the most gala formal ball of the social season in Columbus. The ball was held at the famous Ralston Hotel Ball Room in the historic section of downtown Columbus, Georgia. It was followed by a cocktail hour and banquet the next evening at the Fort Benning Country Club, and concluded with a church service on Sunday at the St. John A.M.E. Church in Columbus. The banquet speaker for this festive occasion was Brother Dr. Hugh H. Gloster, President of Morehouse College. Soror Dr. Madelyn Chennault, Post Graduate Exchange Teacher, University of Georgia at Athens was the speaker at the Sunday worship service. Shown below left are Soror Dora E. Jackson and Brother Lorenzo R. Manns, Chairmen of the two organizations who worked every hard to see that these Founders' Day activities were worthy of the names of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Alpha Phi Alpha. Brother Manns Promoted

Brother Lorenzo R. Manns, Secretary of Delta Iota Lambda Chapter for the past fifteen years and chairman for the joint Founders' Day activities, and who recently received his twenty-five year Alpha membership certificate has become the first black chief probation officer of a deep south city. Brother Manns learned of his job promotion from Juvenile Court Judge Aaron Cohn. Brother Manns is unofficially considered to be the "Dean" of Delta Iota Lambda. His time and energy are always well spent in behalf of Alpha Phi Alpha activities. He is never too tired or busy to say "yes" when asked to give of his many talents for Alpha. That brotherly spirit abounds always with Brother Manns. Brothers are always welcome at his home for meetings, socials or for the business of Alpha. His charming wife Bertha is very active in the Alpha Wives and Sweethearts Club — The Alphabetts. Congratulations Bro. Manns on your promotion.
