Editor's llcvicw Greetings . . . "Do they still make Alphas like they used to? Will there be a new group of leaders to take over the mantle of Robeson, King, Young and Marshall? In this age of lowered test scores and even lower expectations of success, are there still college students who strive to excell? The undeniable answer to each of these questions is 'YES!'" In this manner we introduced our first Distinguished Collegians feature in 1978. Allow me to continue to quote from that issue — and I'm sure you'll understand why we continue to salute the members of Alpha Phi Alpha who are in college . . . "Those of us who have been out of the college arena for some time can easily underestimate the fine work being carried on in these institutions of higher learning. For the most part, our involvement within this area and interaction with these students is mostly social — basketball games, fraternity dances, etc. However, we must not forget that, during the hours that we spend at work, the attention of the college student is also turned toward work of the highest order. Often in their teens, these young people explore the vast expanses of knowledge, work incessantly for causes that they feel are right, interact in situations much more complex than your average nine-to-five job and struggle to make any number of decisions which will shape the rest of their lives. In addition, those young men who are members of the Brotherhood of Alpha Phi Alpha take on the challenge of being 'Servants of All' — dedicating the rest of their lives to the betterment of all mankind."... Look closely at the Alpha Men featured in this issue, and all of our college Brothers. Encourage them, help them, share with them your wisdom. And, at the same time, feel encouraged and gratified by their achievements. Know that your commitment to Alpha is reaping a vast harvest — young Alphas are conducting scientific research, studying in England, heading national organizations (both civic and honorary), leading entire student bodies at major institutions, and still opening the doors of opportunity at institutions which have ignored the minority presence. These are the "Men of Black and Gold" — and as long as they carry the torch of the Jewels, Alpha lives! . . . Our FOCUS section in this issue also salutes an outstanding college Brother, JAMES WESLEY SIMPSON, Student Government President at Langston University. Langston is an historically Black college built, in large part, by Alpha giants such as G. LAMAR HARRISON and WILLIAM HALE. Threats to this institution's existence are like those faced by many of our schools, and courageous leadership is needed to stand up to those insensitive to our heritage and our present needs. Earlier this year we profiled Langston's new president, Brother ERNEST L. HOLLOWAY, and it is a tribute to our Fraternity that another young Brother has stepped forth to speak out for the students at this school. Congratulations, Jim .. . CORRECTION: I must report that the Secretary to last issue's cover subject, Brother LIONEL NEWSON, is Mrs. Cora Stephens. This was incorrectly reported in our previous column . Just a brief note to thank all of our contributors. You make The Sphinx an outstanding journal of Black achievement in America. Outstanding jobs were done by Brother HUEL PERKINS, author of The Quest for Excellence in Viewpoint; Brother LAURENCE T. YOUNG, SR., who penned our Legacy article on Brother JESSE OWENS in addition to his chores as Omega Chapter Editor; Brother BRAD SPENCER, Associate Editor, who collaborated with your editor for the Alpha Athletes section; and, Brother RUDOLPH JENKINS (the Okie from Muskogee) for his assistance in preparing our FOCUS article . . . Finally, we regret to announce that Mrs. Grace Ferguson, widow of long-time Alpha General Treasurer Meredith Ferguson, passed on March 8th of this year . . . CHAPTER EDITORS; Do Not Forget — the deadline for the Fall 1980 (Post-Convention) issue is SEPTEMBER 1st... Until next issue ... MJP

mE ©miiMiL iPiEn^aiDiEsenr GREETINGS. As we deliberate here, I am proud to have the opportunity to report great success on the major initiatives undertaken during my four years as your General President. These include maintaining a balanced budget, placing the General Convention on a sound financial basis, setting up the Life Membership Reserve Fund, and expanding and improving our financial reporting system. These accomplishments have served to correct important problems in our organizational structure. This will mark the last year of my administration as your General President. As we enter the 1 980's, several major tasks must be completed if the next General President of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is to inherit an organization structurally sound, highly motivated and prepared for the challenges of this new decade. At the forefront of our tasks is the completion of the Million Dollar Fund Drive — perhaps the greatest undertaking in the history of Alpha Phi Alpha. We have witnessed continued progress toward this goal, and I am confident that through your hard work we will meet this worthy challenge before the end of the year. I am asking each of you to get your account in order before leaving this Convention.

We have continued to give support to our major national programs. The Commission on College Brothers Affairs, chaired by Brother Norman Towels, is an example. This Commission was charged with developing a complete program designed to meet the special needs of Alpha men in College. A major concern of the Commission at this point is the adoption of Standing Orders and implementation of the Model Pledge Program. You will be asked to take action at this convention. The second major new initiative is the Senior Alpha Service Program — designed to recognize and utilize the talents of the thousands of experienced Alpha men who are willing to give the Fraternity their time and expertise and to review our structure to insure that we adequately meet the needs of our Senior Brothers at a time when these Brothers constitute a growing segment of our membership. Our Smoker & Symposium highlights the work of this Commissioin. I want each of you to know that I am personally grateful to you for your understanding and support during my administration. The honor of serving as General President is especially heartfelt when one recognizes that, in The House of Alpha, the President is "One Among Equals." My family joins me in extending these greetings and shares my jubilance. Fraternally, /j\

From the 74th Anniversary Convention Brothers: It is, indeed, a pleasure for me to welcome you, my Brothers, to the home of Alpha's National Headquarters . . . "the city that works" . . . Chicago! I extend to you greetings from the General Office Staff, with our hope that you will thoroughly enjoy the many activities planned for this convention. We urge all Brothers (College Brothers in particular) in attendance to take advantage of the opportunity to discuss and clear up any remaining problems that may pertain to the Model Pledge Program or further explanations on the Standing Orders. These programs will need to be adopted by this convention so that implementation can take place in the Fall without delay.

your pledge payments, to the Fund Chairman or your Regional Chairman, as early in the convention as possible. Since only you can keep Alpha "No. 1 , " each of you is asked to make it a personal commitment to participate in all the business sessions, panel discussions, workshops, and public programs. Then, go back to your chapters and communities and do your part to let the world know that Alpha Phi Alpha is a dedicated service organization bringing many benefits to society through national and local chapter programs, through the contributions of the thousands of men who have pledged to be "Servants of All," we shall continue to be "First of AH" and "Transcend All" throughout the 1980's.

The Million Dollar Campaign Committee will also be playing an important role at this convention — and will need the cooperation of the Brotherhood to round out the campaign goal. So be sure and turn in

The General Office Staff will be located in the Palmer House Hotel to serve you — and we welcome your input on all matters you feel might be of benefit to our beloved Fraternity. Fraternally yours,

JAMES B. BLANTON Executive Secretary The Sphinx / Summer 1980

There Goes An Alpha Man Boynton High Basketball Coach Brother JERRY BELTON has seen a lot of clouds over the past year. Fortunately, the proverbial "silver linings" also cropped up. Pledging Alpha, through Beta Chi Lambda Chapter (Muskogee, Oklahoma), had its trying moments. But the silver lining (or should it be gold) came when the Northeastern State University graduate was initiated into Alpha Phi Alpha. Brother Belton's trials in his professional work, as coach of the basketball team at Boynton High School (Boynton, OK), took a bit longer to overcome. In fact, Brother Belton's involvement in Boynton's quest for a state basketball championship date back to the days when he was a student and player on the team he now coaches. The squad landed runner-up roles in both 1972 and 1973. This year, with Jerry Belton as coach, the Boynton Cardinals again tried to go all the way. The atmosphere for the quest was not exactly the best — with racial turmoil, internal problems and a school burning a year ago complicating the already high-pressure situation facing Belton's young charges. Worse, the Cardinals were placed on probation by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association and Jerry was not sure his team would even be allowed in the playoffs. In fact, as the playoffs neared, two sets of brackets were drawn up — with and without Boynton. But the Cardinals were admitted and they went all the way — to capture the school's first-ever state basketball championship. In retrospect, Brotehr

Belton thinks that all of the adversity might even have helped his team. "Our players drew closer together through all of this," he said, "We had our problems and we had to talk to the players individually quite often to explain tothem what we wanted to do and what we were capable of doing." The team's experience and their ability to transcend made this quest a lesson in life as well as an athletic event. And the young students had a fine teacher — an Alpha Man.

Incidentally, another Alpha Man also figures in the accomplishment. Brother Tanzy Lockridge, Alpha's Oklahoma State Director, retired this year as Superintendent of the Boynton Schools. The Cardinal's triumph was a dynamite retirement present!

i TIME FOR CHANGE My Brothers in Alpha, with this being the summer issue of The Sphinx the time has come for me to relinquish my position as College Scene Editor and hand it to new leadership. When I took this position almost a year ago, I had no idea that the year would unfold as fraternally beautiful as it did. As I told you in my first article, I did not want a prize for my writing nor did I want any praise. All I wanted was a few minutes of your time to relay to you the feelings of undergraduate Alphaman about Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. And from the responses I received, it appears as though I received my time. And for giving me your time as wholeheartedly as you did, I graciously say THANK YOU! My brothers, before I leave you as College Scene Editor, there are several thoughts that I would like to leave with you. Think about them especially during the summer recess. First to my fellow graduating Brothers, many of you are about to embark on journeys that will be both long and difficult. Many of you will go on to graduate or professional schools, while many others of you will move directly into predetermined careers. Whatever your chosen path, remember that the eyes of a nation are upon you. In an era of impending war, political unrest, hostages, and economic uncertainty, this country and its many peoples are looking toward you (tomorrow's leaders) for answers to its problems. On your shoulders rest a burden left to you and your ancestors two hundred years ago. And now it is up to you to see that the struggle to eradicate this burden and others like it are continued. Remember your Brothers before you. They carried many of these same burdens and fought and 6

died in the struggle to eliminate them. Remember the impact of these Brothers on the nation and the world. Carry their thoughts and actions with you and use them as impetus to push yourself toward excellence. Keep in mind, my Brothers, that if an object is worth having you must work hard to obtain it. Speaking at an Alpha Chi National Honor Society induction ceremony, noted sociologist Dr. Daniel C. Thompson, said that to this date in time statistics show that only four out of every one thousand Black children born in America will ever receive an undergraduate education. So, my Brothers, when you step out of undergraduate school remember that 996 young Black boys and girls are depending on you for help. Secondly, when you leave your undergraduate surroundings don't forget about Alpha Phi Alpha. Alpha does not just exist on college and university campuses. There are over 250 graduate chapters of Alpha throughout the world. So when you leave your undergraduate chapter, go join a graduate chapter and continue to let your light shine bright. Don't forget that becoming an Alphaman was a lifelong investment and in order to collect benefits, you must forever maintain that drive to be first of all. To my undergraduate Brothers, I say this to you. Our national office, under the great leadership of General President Brother James Williams, has done great things for our fraternity. But now, it is depending on you to help carry out many of the fraternity's goals and objectives; most important of which is the Million Dollar fund Drive. Make a pledge and work to see that it is paid out. Remember Brothers that the money being donated to the United

Negro College Fund may be the same money that finances part of all of your education; or part or all of a younger brother or sister's education. Finally, to all my Brothers, remember what Alpha has done for and meant to you. Keep in mind that Alpha Phi Alpha is first because it is best and best because it was first. Thank you, Brother Michael Price, for giving me the opportunity to serve my beloved fraternity; and thank you my Brothers for letting me enter into your mind and thoughts. I Love you all! In closing, I would like to leave you with a poem by St. Francis of Assisi. I feel it befits Alphamen everywhere. Lord make me an instrument of your peace Where there is hatred, Let me sow Love; Where there is injury - Pardon; Where there is doubt - Faith; Where there is despair - Hope; Where there is darkness - Light; And where there is sadness •

Joy.

Lord grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be Comforted, to understand rather that to be understood, to Love than to be loved For it is by giving that one receives. By forgiving that one is forgiven, And by dying that one awakens to Eternal life. May God Bless you All!

Fraternally, AILee College Scene Editor The Sphinx / Summer 1980

Alpha Athletes Brother DAVE WHITNEY, Head Basketball Coach at Alcorn State University in Lorman, Mississippi, continued his winning tradition by guiding the Braves to the NCAA Division I PostSeason Tournament. Alcorn thus became the first predominately Black institution of higher learning to enter basketball's top collegiate circle. Brother Whitney's drive to the top was not without considerable struggle — primarily brought on by the fact that the media and other members of the organized sports establishment persist in blatantly ignoring the achievements of Black schools. At one point in this past season, Alcorn was tied with DePaul — in that both had identical 23game winning streaks in the same NCAA Division I. Yet, according to the pollsters of America, DePaul was the top team in the nation, while Alcorn was not worthy of rank. One reason frequently cited by the overwhelmingly white group of sports gurus responsible for these polls is that the "level of competition" faced by the Braves (and other Black teams) is somehow "sub-par." What this flimsy excuse wants us to overlook is the fact that the Southwestern Athletic Conference (the SWAC), which includes Alcorn, ranks second among all conferences in the number of athletes signed by professional sports organizations. The question looms — "If there is no substantial level of talent found in such conferences, why do the money-hungry pro franchises rush to sign these athletes?" You may safely bet that it's not because of their affirmative action programs! This double-standard notwithstanding, the Alcorn Braves went on to win 26 consecutive regular season games during 1979-80 and posted the best two-year mark of any Division I school in the nation, at 56-3. In so doing, Alcorn captured its third SWAC title in the past four years and r e c o r d e d its eighth c o n s e c u t i v e season of more than 20 victories. This year's team led the nation in scoring, scoring margin and rebounding margin. This was Brother Whitney's eleventh year at the helm of the ASU Braves and throughout his tenure the school's basketball program has blossomed into 18

Year. A member of Theta Sigma Lambda Chapter in Lorman, Dave is married to Bernice Whitney. They are the parents of four daughters and one son. Dave is confident that he will be able to maintain a winning tradition at Alcorn, the nation's oldest land-grant college. He's still wondering, however, about the attitudes of the nation's sportswriters toward Black teams. That appears to be a concern that we all should share. For example, national coverage following the NCAA tournament was as prejudicial as ever. The

With Dave Whitney at the helm, Alcorn became the first Black school to enter the NCAA tournament. a national power. During this span, he has led the team to seven national post-season tournaments and has been voted SWAC Coach of the Year five times, including the past two seasons. During 1978-79, he led the team to the National Invitational Tournament semi-finals, finally losing to Indiana University in a thrilling nationally televised game. Brother Whitney, a serious dedicated disciplinarian, is nothing but business when it comes to basketball. This outlook and professionalism has made him the winningest coach in the illustrious history of Alcorn State University basketball. Dave is a graduate of Kentucky State, where he was one of the all time greats. He started his coaching career at Burt High School, Clarksville, Tennessee. There, his teams compiled a phenomenal 2 1 8 - 7 7 r e c o r d . His squads won four state tournaments and one national high school crown.

pollsters were quick to point out Alcorn's loss in their second tournament game against nationally ranked LSU as vindication of their season-long snubbing of the Braves in the rankings. As for DePaul, their top-ranked team, which lost its very first tournament game . . . well, the pollsters cried, that's just an indication of the high quality of collegiate basketball across the nation! Dave Whitney and the nation's other Black coaches are determined to keep on winning — and make the establishment change that outdated tune. The Sphinx / Summer 1980

Brother James Wesley " J i m " Simpson was elected as the President of the Student Government Association of Langston University, Langston Oklahoma on April 12, 1980. Brother Simpson, a senior majoring in Pre-Law and History, was born and reared in the Langston University community. Jim graduated from Coyle High School as salutatorian of his class in 1977. While at Langston University he has been on the Dean's Honor Roll each semester. He was initiated in Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society on March 5, 1980, and was named the most outstanding student in the Social Science Department during the Spring 1980 Honors Convocation. Brother Simpson is employed as a Student Assistant in the Cooperative Research Program at Langston University and serves as a Peer Tutor in the Special Services Program. In addition to his academic pursuits he served as Vice-President of the Sophomore Class in 1978-79, and President of the Pan-Hellenic Council in 1979-80. Jim is presently a member of the Langston University Dust Bowl Players. Brother Simpson's initiation into Alpha through Beta Kappa Chapter (Lanston University) on November 19, 1978, was the continuation of a family tradition — in that Jim's dad is Brother James Allan Simpson, a Life Member initiated in Delta Xi Chapter at Wilberforce University in 1952. The elder Brother Simpson is Director of Development at Langston. Brother Jim Simpson also has nine uncles and three first cousins who are Alpha men. And it doesn't end there — because Jim's mother, Dr. Wessylyne Simpson (now Professor of Education at Lanston) was the Sweetheart of Beta Kappa Chapter during her college years. The chapter at that time included Langston's President, Brother Ernest L. Holloway, Sr. For the past four years the Fraternity's theme has been "BACK TO BASICS: The Greatness of our Past is the Key to Our Future." Nothing more clearly exemplifies the practical implications of this motto than the continuing achievements of Brothers like Jim Simpson — who is continuing the Alpha legacy by taking his place of leadership among his peers. 19


Brother JAMES CLEVELAND OWENS, age 67, was called to his reward April 1, 1980 in Tucson, Arizona following a brief illness. Brother Owens was born September 12, 1913 in Danville, Alabama and moved to Columbus, Ohio at an early age. He was destined to be a world's champion in his field of activity as early as 1932, while attending East Technical High School in Cleveland, where he gained national fame with a 10.3 clocking in the 100 meter dash. In the 1936 Olympics, before huge crowds at a new stadium Hitler ordered built for the Olympics, before Hitler and other top Nazis, Brother Owens: Leaped 25 feet 5!4 inches, first in Olympic history; Won the 100 meter dash in 10.3 seconds; Won the 200 meter dash in 20.7 - a world's record; Ran the lead off leg for the United States wining 400 meter relay team Brother Owens was a member of Kappa Chapter at Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, and later joined to Xi Lambda Chapter, Chicago. Funeral rites were held for Brother Owens at the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at the University of Chicago campus in Chicago, with the Eulogy given by Brother Archibald J. Carey; acknowledgments were delivered by Brother Dick Gregory, Eleanor D. Ragsdale and Joe Black - on Friday, April 4, 1980 at 10:00 A.M. A more fitting tribute could not have been paid than what the city of Chicago afforded Brother Owens - as hosts of relatives and friends - the liturgy wore a layered-look at the Rockefeller Chapel - having a huge cavernous look - significant indeed Brother Owen's passing came at that season for the church signing "ALLELUIA" at the passing of a great one.

Olympic's Hero Brother Jesse Owens Answered the Bell by Laurence T. Young, Sr. all gathered again in the great auditorium of the Center for Continuing Education across from the Rockefeller chapel on the campus of the University of Chicago, where a moving Alpha Omega service was conducted by members of Xi Lambda Chapter under^ the direction of Brother J. Herbert King and Brother Leon Hendricks. Words of tribute were given by Brother Dick Gregory and the Brothers, num-

bering over 100, "gathered 'round and made their praises resound of this Brother whose labors now are crowned." Members of the Owens family were presented to those assembled and a hearty repast was served. Here again the Alpha Brothers in their inimitable way did bid Farewell to a great hero, a great competitor and a Brother of humble faith.

The Quest For Excellence This article, reprinted from The Congressional Record, is the text of a speech given by Brother Perkins at Bowie State College in Maryland. It captured the spirit of this issue's salute to Distinguished Collegians

The Sphinx / Summer 1980

I am pleased to be the keynote speaker at this Honors Convocation which begins your sixth Annual Festival of Humanities and Fine Arts. Yet, amidst this pleasure, one cannot help but approach an Honors Day celebration without some feeling of ambivalence. Honors Day, you say, and immediately the thought comes to mind that if every student who attended Bowie State College came with a seriousness of purpose, with a sincere dedication to the things of the mind, there would be no need for Honors Day—for indeed, every student would be achieving excellence. If every student lived up to the very best that is within him, we would have an honors university rather than an Honors Day. Think about it. But until that day arrives, we must pause in the middle of things and say "well done" to those students who have distinguished themselves by earning honor averages, and remind the remainder of the students that this is what the college experience is all about. So I begin by offering my heartiest congratulations to those of you who are being honored here today. You have shown by the grades you have earned that your values are properly placed, that your sights are accurately focused and that your purposes for being at this college are solidly grounded. To those of you who didn't quite make it this time—I say to you that the Honor Roll is posted each semester. Get on board. Be an honoree next time around. It appears significant to me that this Honors Convocation serves as the flagship event of your Sixth Annual Festival of Humanities and Fine Arts. There is a clear recognition by the planners of these events that honors, fine arts and humanistic education are all of one piece. There are two kinds of courses which students take in college: courses which teach you how to make a living and courses which teach you how to live. The Fine Arts and the Humanities fall in the latter category. Never take the Fine Arts and Humanities for granted or regard them as fringes on your education or antidotes for boredom in later years or inconsequential effete pastimes. These are the areas of learning which civilize us—cause us to live more fully than we otherwise would—and thus are eternally relevant to us as human beings. They say to us that: "Wonders are many on earth and the greatest of these is man." Stay close to these life-defining disciplines. They are not expendable. Now to my remarks. This country is perishing from an orgy of mediocrity. We will be numbered among the nations which inhabit the graveyards of civilization if this state of affairs is allowed to (continued on next page) 21


continue unchecked. Every form of life seems to be acting in such a way that it levels up our worst and levels down our best. This dastardly state has produced the most deadly cult on the face of this earth—the cult of mediocrity. Fortunately for civilization, things were not always thus. Through a study of history, we learn of a Greek civilization which encouraged excellence through drama prizes and sports competitions and awarded the laurel wreath to its citizens to so indicate this superior achievement. The names of Sophocles, Aeschylus, Euripides and Aristophanes come down to us from this period because they were victors at the Dionysian festival held each spring in Athens to seek out the best playwrights in the province. We read of the Italian Renaissance and discover the outstanding talents and abilities were financially subsidized by patrons, by the church, by the populace and that commissions were awarded on the basis of surpassing excellence in any given art medium. From this period we remember the names of Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Lorenzo Ghiberti who emerged as victors in contests for commissions. Or if we take a close scrutiny at the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920's we find that the entire movement, which produced more conscious self-expression in ten short years among Black than had been produced in the preceeding 2 0 0 years, was based upon ferreting out the superior, the unusual, the excellent-and bringing these giants to the attention of a literate public. Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Zora Neale Hurston, Claude McKay—all won prizes conducted by the Crisis and the Opportunity magazines. They won because they were good. Or if we look at the entrepreneurs of the movement—W. E. B. Du Bois, Alain Locke, Charles S. Johnson—we find examples of men who strove for excellence as a standard of measure. American has not been without its excursion into this concept of excellence, one recalls in the late fifties and the early sixties, that "excellence" was a key word in educational circles. Articles abounded in professional periodicals dealing with excellence: "The Pursuit of Excellence," "The Price of Excellence," "High Peaks of Excellence," and "Can State Colleges Educate for Excellence?" Somehow there was no embarrassment associated with trying to achieve this "impossible dream." While the pursuit of an ideal is indeed difficult to measure statistically, there is little doubt in my mind that this emphasis upon the pursuit of excellence had a pronounced positive effect upon our national life and character. I am happy beyond measure to see the idea of excellence as a goal, as a standard, as an ideal returning to our colleges and universities. Your theme "The Quest for Excellence" is a concrete example of what I am speaking to. The fact that Bowie State College so recognizes the necessity to keep before its students the fact that they should all strive to become superior, first-rate—in short, excellent—is a healthy sign that America will survive. This quest is a personal mission, and should be operative in the mind of each 22

student at this college. To seek excellence, to strive for the impossible, to chase an ideal, to one day say something new is what this college is all about. I think we are rediscovering the fact that no amount of money, no Federal program, no piece of legislation can instill this respect for excellence in students. It is a personal quest and thereby your theme becomes vital. Each of you who sits before me must keep before you the reasons for matriculating at this college — in short, you must quest for excellence. Your question to me at this point could well be just why should I join this "quest for excellence?" Excellence is a very elusive ideal, and you say, the journey toward it is a never-ending one. I am glad you asked. The first reason why you should join in this quest for excellence is because as one strives for excellence he comes nearer to fulfilling the purposes of a human being. Many years ago, Socrates, the wise Greek philosopher, said that a thing achieved excellence in terms of what it was created to do. An automobile is a good automobile in terms of performing the function of an automobile which is to provide transportation. A human being is a good human being when he performs the function of a human being which is namely: to think, to use his

mind. Why do I single out thinking?For this reason: "Thinking is the only function which separates man from the lower animals. It is the degree to which he capitalizes upon this difference that he approaches becoming a true human being. Man is the only thinking animal—the only animal who knows that there has been allotted to him so much time to fulfill his purpose upon this earth. Man is the only animal who knows that he must die. This fact alone, gives his life purpose. We honor the Greek civilization which flowered to its fruition about the 5th century B.C. because they were thinkers. They asked the big questions: What is the nature and purpose of man? How do things come into being, have existence and pass away? They were not content to accept the world as they found it. These statements: "Know thyself." "All things must be examined and called into question." "All things were in chaos until the mind arose and put them in order." The Golden Mean—nothing in excess," are all statements of a thinking man and give evidence of the supremacy of the mind in the affairs of men. Like the Greeks of old, you too must use your minds to improve the human condition, to make

this world a better place in which to live, to push back the remaining frontiers of knowledge. The highest compliment that can be paid to a human being is to say that he thinks. May that compliment be bestowed upon you incessantly in your quest for excellence. The best statement I have ever read on thinking comes from a novel by Ayn Rand entitled "The Fountainhead." She writes: Man cannot survive except through his mind. He comes to earth unarmed. His brain is his only weapon. Animals obtain food by force. Man has no claws, no fangs, no horns, no great strength of muscle. He must plant food or hunt it. To plant, he needs a process of thought. From the simplest necessity to the highest religious abstraction, from the wheel to the skyscraper, everything we are and everything we have comes from a single attribute of man—the function of his reasoning mind. Join in this quest for excellence because it is vital to your fulfilling your purpose as a thinking human being. The next reason why you should pursue excellence is that a goal such as excellence can give y o u r life m e a n i n g . The psychologist and the theologian tell us that it is sometimes very difficult to find meaning in life. But, if we are to live wholesome, productive lives we must have a purpose—ameaning, a reason for all of this. It does not really matter how much motion you go through, how much energy you crowed into an activity. If there is no meaning connected with the activity, there is no achievement. Look at the abandoned windmill. It is busy enough. It is stirred by every vagrant breeze—but it is unharnessed. Business alone rarely gets the job done. Success demands that motion be coupled with motive—action with ideas. Without a plan, a purpose, and a goal we are merely moving in circles. Set some goals for yourselves and do not rest until you have achieved them. For you young scholars, such as you are, the road ahead should irrevocably lead to graduate and professional schools. I hope that this is in your plans for many of you. You cannot be satisfied with a Bachelor's degree you will receive at the end of your four years here. Years ago, W. E. B. DuBois, the sainted scholar and first Black militant of the 20th century wrote: "The history of civilization seems to prove that no group or nation which seeks advancement can despise or neglect the power of the well-trained minds; and this power of intellectual leadership must be given to any race before this race can seriously be asked to assume the responsibility of dispelling its own ignorance." The same is true today. We need the best trained minds to stay in school as long as they can, earning as many degrees as they can in order to remain among the most civilized people in this world. Without a good quality education in today's world—you are lost. Opportunities are opening up all over this world which were never dreamed of decades ago. You can't wait until the opening comes along and then run back and get prepared. Pursue excellence. You never know where it can lead you. For certain, its The Sphinx / Summer 1980


results can only be positive—can only lead to personal fulfillment—can only succeed in giving your life meaning through achievement. Another reason you must pursue excellence is so that you can escape the most prevalent cult on the earth at the moment—the cult of mediocrity. We recognize honor students at today's convocation because they rose above the mediocre and distinguished themselves. We never honor the mediocre students. Why? Because it requires no sacrifice, no dedication, no commitment, no skill, no effort. The honor students did not have any more brain power than did his average counterpart, they just decided to use wisely the brain which they had. This is a highly competive world and machines are being designed that can do anything an average person can do with no mistakes at all. The pace of the world has quickened to the point that if you are not well-trained, there is no time to train you. And that, in my thinking, is precisely why you came to college. You came to college to be changed—to rise above mediocrity. One does not come to college to be reinforced in poor speech habits, fuzzy thinking, and less than lucid writing. A good college changes students in how they talk, how they dress, their tastes, their reading habits—their whole being. Or of what use is it to spend four years in college and leave with the same lifestyle you brought with you as a freshman. A college must change, transform, inspire its students if it is to justify its existence. Not somuchwhatyou have learned as how you behave is the measure of your college. A college is not measured by the number of national fraternities and sororities it houses, nor the number of cars—and what models—its students drive. A good college wants to produce the scholars, the leaders and the thinkers of this world — people who will one day say something new. Now if you have read Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, you know that the whole argument of the novel is that the people who have something new to say in this world should be permitted to say it at any and all costs. While you may not be driven to taking the lives of the two pawnbrokers as Raskolnikov did in the novel, you must agree with him that there have been few people in this world who have been able to say something new. These people should be nurtured in our colleges and universities. They should come from among the ranks of those of you who sit before me. You must strive to distinguish yourselves—and if possible, be one of those rare individuals who may say something new. What is there to say? The world still searches for a cure for cancer? For diabetes? The world still longs for peace? The world's sources of energy are slowly being depleted. No, everything new has not been said. There are always challenges ahead and that is what makes life worth the effort. The final and most important reason why you should pursue excellence as an ideal is that you young people who sit before me represent the hope of the world. The world looks to leadership from its best and its brightest. And understandably so. You The Sphinx / Summer 1980

would not want dum-dums serving as leaders in the affairs of this world. You would not want an "Average Joe" trying to defend your case in court if you were in serious legal difficulties. Neither would you want a brain surgeon who had been lackadaisical about his professional training performing a delicate operation on you or any of your loved ones. You represent the hope of the world, but just recently a very important author wrote some very disparaging remarks about this future. Rudolf Flesch, author of the 1 9 5 5 bestseller Why Johnny Can't Read recently asserted that America is lapsing back into illiteracy so fast that it might have to import doctors and scientists by the 1 9 9 0 ' s . Flesch said that up to half of the United States population is functionally illiterate and that reading skills have been falling constantly since 1 9 2 5 . Arthur Ashe, millionaire tennis star, pretty much echoed the same idea when he placed great importance on reading. In a letter to Black parents, entitled "Parents, Send Your Child to the Library," he wrote boldly that minorities had been on the same road of sports and entertainment too long. We need to pull over, fill up at the library and speed away to Congress, and the Supreme Court, the unions and the business world. He cited statistics: there is one chance in

every 1,000 of your son becoming a professional in sports, he said. Would you bet your future on something with odds of 9 9 9 to 1? I wouldn't. He goes on to say that while the minorities account for 8 0 percent of the National Basketball Association, they are less than 4 percent of the doctors and lawyers. While they account for 3 6 percent of major league baseball, they are less than 2 percent of engineers. While minorities account for 4 0 percent of the National Football League, they are less than 11 percent of workers such as carpenters and bricklayers. The solution—get thee to a l i b r a r y , to u s e t h e l a n g u a g e of Shakespeare. If we are talking about the hope of the world, such as you are, the best advice I can offer you is to spend more time in the library. Perfect the skills of reading, writing, thinking. Read everything you can get your hands on. I have never known a person yet who made a significant contribution to civilization who was not a vociferous, voracious, insatiable reader. If you are looking for confidence, a positive self-image, happiness, security and peace of mind—they are all found in perfecting the basic skills of reading, writing and thinking.

I didn't make the world this way. This is the way I found it. I found that those persons who lacked these skills were insecure, reticent, shy, afraid. I found that those people who possessed these skills to a marked degree were the confident, well-adjusted, secure people of this world. I also found that money was no substitute for the perfection of these skills. Money will not buy intelligence for the fool. Money will not buy bravery for the coward. Money cannot even buy happiness for the man who does not know what will make him happy. It is all related to perfecting these skills which say that we are more than animals. It all has to do with being able to handle ideas—to conceptualize, hypothesize, generalize, synthesize. It occurs to me that the three men who divide the world into old and new were men just like you and me with minds but with this quest for excellence and the unswerving will to use them. I have reference to Freud in psychoanalysis, Darwin in biology, and Einstein in physics. Men with minds. Men who gave this world a new direction. Martin Luther King, Jr. will certainly go down in history as someone who changed this world—a pivotal figure of the 20th century. Now here was a man who strove for excellence. He had read every book he could get his hands on in the areas of ethics, philosophy, political theory. When history called upon him—he was ready. Bright, articulate, fearless. You represent that kind of hope for the years ahead. I come now to the end of my remarks. I have tried to say several things. I have said that each and every one of you—honor students and other students alike—must strive for excellence because as you strive toward this ideal you come nearer to fulfilling the purposes of a human being. I have also said that as you quest for this ideal, this goal, it can give your life meaning. I said that as you seek excellence, you escape mediocrity—the most deadly of the deadly sins. And that you must seek excellence because as young people you represent the hope of the world. Make a vow today that you will live up to the very best that is within you. There is absolutely no security which can match the confidence and the self-assurance that one receives from knowing deep within himself that he has performed at the very highest level of his ability. Finally, all I have said to you here this morning seems to be beautifully summed up in a poem by John Oxenham Listen to it: "To every man there openeth A way, and ways and a way And the high soul climbs the high way And the low soul gropes the low And in between on the misty flats The rest drift to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low And every man decideth The way his soul must go." The high soul pursues excellence. The mediocre soul drifts in between on the misty flats. Won't you be a high soul? Won't you begin today a relentless quest for that elusive ideal called excellence? The times demand it. 23

BIFFLE, III became president of the group in January of this year. His group is committed to promulgating and promoting the concepts of community education in ways that benefit the Black community. With other Alphamen, Brother Biffle charted new courses and extended new challenges to his colleagues during its recent national meeting in Boston, MA.

Brother RICHARD BIFFLE, III

Brother Biffle is an active member of Eta Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha (Pasadena-Altadena); however, he was not always a supporter of fraternities. In fact, for many years he regaled listeners with stories of his antifraternity endeavors while an undergraduate student at the University of California at Riverside. He would pridefully recount how he and other Black students were instrumental in causing all fraternities to be temporarily banned on the UCR campus. 25


Brother Biffle graduated from UCR in 1971 with a degree in political science. He then moved onto Eastern Michigan University and received a Master's degree in Education Administration. As time passed, Biffle's association with members of fraternities caused him to rethink his views of fraternity life. Finally, in 1979, after extensive exposure to Alphamen, he became a member of Alpha Phi Alpha. Brother Biffle recently left his position of Assistant Professor of Education and Director of the Center for Community Education Development at the University of Redlands. He is now completing work on the Ph.D. degree at the University of New Mexico in Albuguerque.

He later served as assistant principal and is currently serving as Principal of Crestwood Elementary School. Recognizing his 23 years in that capacity, he was awarded a Lifetime Membership in the P.T.A. Appreciating his college education, Brother Burrus organized the local chapter of the A & T Alumni Association.

He feels that the ethnic and multicultural issues in education can be better served in New Mexico with its rich diversity of cultures and peoples. Brother Biffle is married and is the father of a lovely baby daughter. Brother GEORGE W. C. BROWN, Jr., Assistant Regional Director, Area South 1970-1979, was cited by District VII of the Eastern Region (Virginia) as "Brother of the Year."

Previously Brother Brown was selected by the Norfolk Chapter (Alpha Phi Lambda) as Alpha "Man of the Year," 1978 at its Annual Civic Awards Banquet and Ball. An Alpha Brother is known by the company he associates with and all who know Brother Brown readily identify him as an active Alpha Brother serving in local, state, regional and national affairs. Brother Brown is an Alpha Brother who wears many "hats," in the engineering field, education, civil rights, community service and humanitarian deeds for his fellowman. Amid Brother Brown's busy schedule he still remains active, flexible, keenly aware of problems and concerns of college Brothers throughout Tidewarter and the Eastern Region. His life reflects manly deeds, scholarship, and love of all mankind which encompasses the aims of our dear fraternity. Brother ARNELL BURRUS was selected "Alpha Man of the Year" by Alpha Phi Lambda Chapter, Norfolk, Virginia. This award was presented to Brother Burrus at the Annual Civic Awards Ball, in recognition of his unselfish dedication to education, 26

Brother ARNELL BURRUS

As a leader in the community Brother Burrus was a co-organizer of the Fernwood Farms Civic League. Not only is he respected as a friend by his neighbors who live near him but also by young men who have never met him. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Unton YMCA for 17 years. His experience and expertise has helped formulate policies and make decisions that have affected the lives of the youngsters who benefit from all the YMCA has to offer. Brother Burrus has always felt the importance of religion in his life. A longtime member of the Grace Episcopal Church, he is a former Sunday School teacher and now serves on the Vistry of the church. He has worked with the acolytes for 16 years and has been both their advisor and confident during those many years. Alpha Phi Alpha has always meant a great deal to Arnell Burrus. Always willing to accept his share of responsibility he has served as President of the Alpha Phi Lambda Chapter and is a life member of our fraternity. However, it is as a humanitarian that

we are most proud of Brother Burrus. In 1965 he was commended by the School Board of Chesapeake City Schools for organizing and directing a tutorial program for students needing remedial help in reading and math. Inspiring teachers and parents, an evening program was organized on a volunteer basis. His leadership was great in motivating all those involved to give the extra effort to insure the success of the program. Respected by those with whom he works, he continues to urge them to strive for excellence and to give their best to benefit their fellowmen. Brother LORENZA PHILLIPS BUTLER, Jr. has been elected National Pre-Alumni President for 1980-81. The announcement was made during the 34th Annual United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Convention in Detroit, Michigan, February 7-9. A constituent unit of the UNCF, the National PreAlumni Council assists the UNCF in organizing students for the UNCFraising campaign. As president, Butler will represent over 67,000 students attending the 41 colleges and universities of the UNCF. A junior majoring in mass communications at Clark College, Brother Butler is an exchange student from Wiley College in Marshall, Texas. Butler said his biggest goal as president will be to encourage students attending UNCF schools to become more involved in the political process. "Being involved in the political process is extremely important for the survival of Black colleges and universities. We must encourage students to inquire about the status of monies used to run Black institutions of higher learning, such as the Title III program (a federal program started in 1966 to allocate grants to Black colleges.) If the Title III program is lost, monies received from UNCF and college alumni could not replace those federal dollars." Brother Butler and his national committee will also help motivate Black students to support their alma-maters before they leave college. One of his main efforts in achieving this goal will be planning and implementing new fundraising activities for the national UNCF Drive, already in progress. "During this drive, the UNCF solicits operating money for its member schools. This money is used to help the schools maintain the highest academic standards, and to prepare students of UNCF schools for demanding professions and careers. The National Pre-Alumni Council will participate in several fundraising projects, The Sphinx / Summer 1980


including a phonothon, workshops to train UNCF volunteers, and a runothon for the metro Atlanta area." A person who is active in serveral national organizations, Butler was previously national business manager of the council. He is state president of the youth and college division for the Texas National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a member of the National Black Media Coalition, and executive director of the Houston Academic Cultural Technological Scientific Olympics (ATC-SO). Butler also has been one of several undergraduate representatives promoting the national "Million Dollar Fund Drive" of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. As undergraduate representative for the Alphas' drive, Butler collected pleges to the UNCF, as well as pledges to the Urban League and NAACP. On the Clark and Wiley College campuses Butler is active with the fraternity, lota Beta Sigma Honorary Broadcasting Fraternity, the forensics team, and college chapters of the NAACP. He has also worked with radio station KBWC at Wiley, and WCLK radio at Clark. A native of Houston, Texas, Butler attended high school in Leysin, Switzerland. He will receive a joint degree in Nursing Home Administration and Mass Communications from Wiley College in 1981. Butler is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lorenza P. Butler, Sr. of Houston.

Councilman Oliver has contributed outstanding services in the community, religious, civic, and fraternal organization during the past years.

This appointment gives him the distinction of being the first Black to receive such honors in Montgomery. Councilman Oliver was recently elected President Pro-tem of the Montgomery City Council. There was 100% attendance representing all Alpha Chapters in Alabama at the state meeting, and of course, Alpha Upsilon Lambda was there.

Brother ELMER C. JACKSON, Sr., an enthusiastic member of Beta Zeta Lambda Chapter, Jefferson City, Missouri, is an Alpha man of distinction. Brother Jackson is the first and only Black psychiatrist employed at the Fulton State Hospital, Branch of the Department of Mental Health of Missouri.

Brother ELMER C. JACKSON, Sr.

Brother Jackson, a native of McAlester, Oklahoma, began his illustrious career in the McAlester School system. He was awarded the American Legion Award for Citizenship, Leadership, and Scholarship and earned the highest honor that can bestowed upon a student, valedictorian, which is a symbol of distinction. He matriculated at Langston University, Langston, Oklahoma where he crossed those "burning sands into Alpha land." Brother Jackson served as secretary for Beta Kappa Chapter after entering the Brotherhood of Alpha. While attending Langston University, he served as student instructor in the Chemistry Department for three years and held the position of Vice-President of the senior class. After graduating from Langston University with honors, Brother Jackson did his graduate work at the University of Wisconsin in Ford Chemistry and Bacteriology. He was later drafted into the U. S. Army. While in the Army, Brother Jackson graduated from the Medical Administrative Officer's School and was subsequently appointed commander of the Medical Sanitary Company, the Malaria Survey Unit and Entomologist in the South Pacific, and Army of Occupation (Japan), respectively. Even though Brother Jackson's educational career was temporarily interrupted, he was determined and destined to secure a medical degree. Honorably discharged at the rank of captain from the U.S. Army in 1946, 28

he migrated to Denver, Colorado where he worked as a researcher and studied one year of Biochemistry, prior to being admitted to the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He received his medical degree in 1954. Since that time, he has maintained membership in, or affiliated with, various organizations such as: Chairman of Psychiatric Audit Committee, Vice-Chairman of Utilization Review Committee at Fulton, Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee, Juvenile Justice Committee of Missouri Council on Clinical Justice, Planning Committee on Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, and National Medical Association. He is a faithful member of Second Baptist Church where he serves as a Deacon and Treasurer. Dr. Jackson now resides at 900 Jackson Street, Jefferson City, Missouri with his lovely wife, the former Gene E. Chiles, who is also active in various activities. They have three sons, two who are Alpha men, Elmer Jr., a CPA; Kevin, an IBM Field Engineer; and Philip, an X-Ray technician. Brother ALLIX B. JAMES, who retired from the presidency of Virginia Union University on June 30, 1979, after spending 29 years in senior administrative posts at the Richmond based institution, continued his role of breaking racial barriers. He, as the only Black member of the State Board of Education, was elected to the presidency at the last meeting of the Board. Among previous firsts held by him are: Chairman of the Richmond Planning Commission; President of the American Association of Theological Schools; membership in a Richmond Chapter of International Kiwanis; a member of the Board of Directors of VEPCO (Virginia Electric and Power Company); he was the first Black in the State to serve on a major state-wide corporate board. He also is the first Black to serve on the University Advisory Council of the American Council of Life Insurance. As President of the State Board of Education, it will be his responsibility for leading the Board in effectuating policies that will insure a quality education for all of the students of public school age in the Commonwealth of Virginia as mandated by the General Assembly. Currently, Dr. James is on sabbatical leave from the University. In September, 1980, he will become the Henderson-Griffith Professor of Pastoral Theology in the Graduate

Brother ALLIX B. JAMES School of Theology of Virginia Union University. As President of the Board, he succeeds Mr. Henry W. Tullock who describes Dr. James "as an outstanding member who has been a great help to me and other members of the Board." When Dr. James was queried regarding his record of being the first Black to achieve a leadership in several areas, he was delighted that new opportunities were now open to persons who were previously denied. Once the barrier is broken, the second go-round is easier. He expressed deep concern that in so many areas Blacks were denied entrance solely on the basis of race and tradition. However, he contended that Blacks must continue to move aggressively forward until all of the racial barriers have disappeared. It is quite evident that racism is still a major factor in American life. Brother ELLIOTT KEYS and Brother EMMETT W. BASHFUL, along with Dr. Wilton Cooper were presented the coveted Whitney M. Young Award at the recent Recognition banquet of the New Orleans Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. This award is sponsored by the national Council of the Boy Scouts of America and is given to selected persons for "unselfish service to the youth of America."

Brother Lawson served as Chapter Secretary. He was diligent about getting the proceedings at our meetings recorded and about getting meeting notices and minutes into our hands. We may have complained about his directions to locate a Brother's home for a meeting, but we always had the notice and we eventually located the Brother's home. Brother Lawson has served as Vice President of the Chapter. In that capacity, he assisted the President in guiding the affairs of the Chapter. Brother Lawson is currently completing his second year as Chapter Treasurer. In this capacity he has regularly prepared reports on the financial status of the Chapter.

In the Fall of '79, our newest Brother, Kenneth Walker entered the ranks of Alpha. Our activities for the Fall '79 semester included working with the local chapter of Big Brothers of America to increase community participation. We also established a program with one of the local Boy Scout troops which enabled their members to attend some of our home basketball games. We also mounted a canned food drive during October and November in which we were able to provide several local families with Thanksgiving dinners. To end a rather fruitful semester, Gamma Sigma Chapter was selected to receive the Outstanding Citizenship Award presented by the Student Government Association for the Fall semester. Our programs for the Spring '80 semester included coaching a Little Brothers basketball team and also continuing our work with the local Boy Scouts. We also plan to have several fundraising activities, our largest being a Black and Gold Ball, in which the proceeds will go towards Alpha's Million Dollar Drive. We will also be co-

We're also preparing activities in connection with a voter registration and awareness program for resident students. The Brothers of Gamma Sigma wish 43


to rededicate ourselves to the goals and aims of Alpha Phi Alpha, always striving to improve the quality of life, and we know we're not alone in this quest. May all of our Brothers have a prosperous and productive year to come.

The Alphabettes (wives and sweethearts of Alphas) serve as an auxiliary to the fraternity by supporting them in their endeavors and assisting them in carrying out their programs. As a first, this year the Brothers of Delta Mu Lambda Chapter and the Alphabettes sponsored a Debutante Cotillion for junior and senior girls in the Greater Paterson Area. Eighteen debutantes were presented at the Cameo in Garfield, NJ.

The fraternity has always been involved in community service, educational and social activities since its organizational meeting in Paterson in 1969. Traditional activities have included the awarding of scholarships, the sponsoring of talent shows, donation of food baskets to needy families, and recognition of Brothers and young 44

The debutantes were juniors and seniors from the local high schools in Paterson, NJ. Proceeds from the Cotillion enabled Delta Mu Lambda and the Alphabettes to expand their scholarship program.

maryland Kappa Phi Lambda Chapter, one of the fastest growing chapters in the east, held its annual spring dance recently at the beautiful Kittamaquandi Room of the Rouse Building in Columbia, MD. The guests danced to the beautiful music of Bill Cummings' Band. It was a very relaxing affair with plenty of assorted hot hors d'oeuvres and refreshments provided by the Alphas of Columbia. This annual affair is always a sell-out. The guests came from New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Northern Virginia and Silver Spring. The Brothers of Kappa Phi Lambda Chapter were very happy to have as

Fraternal spirit abounded and the Brothers in attendance as well as their guests were moved by the remarks of Brother Dr. Lunsford. The Founders' day luncheon also reestablished Rho Lambda's commitment to the Fraternity's Million Dollar Fund Drive. Brother Larry Charles, Upstate Director for New York State and National Statistician for the Million Dollar Drive, reiterated the call by our National President for all the Brothers to give unselfishly in support of this outstanding cause. His stirring presentation resulted in several pledges being made and checks being presented to our Chapter Chairman, Brother Eugene Richards. As we now look ahead at the remaining Chapter year our activities will include: continuing our commitment to the Million Dollar Drive, sponsoring a smoker, continued participation in community activities, and finally holding our annual formal dinner/dance in June.

Thus far, Psi Chapter has participated in the Annual Variety Club Telethon benefiting handicapped individuals as one of our service projects for the year. We have also participated in the Founder's Day Banquet and sponsored Psi Chapter's Annual Alpha Weekend Celebration. Activities during the Alpha Weekend included a symposium on the role of Black fraternities, music, poetry, the election of Psi Chapter's Man of the Year, and finally a disco spectacular. A weekend extravaganza took place during the Penn Relays as Brothers throughout the country were in attendance. Psi Chapter cordially invites all Alpha men to join with us in our relay celebration each year. Our hospitality is extended to all of those who have seen the "light of the world" and we look forward to continued success in going about the business of promoting the aims of our dear fraternity.

The Brothers of Kappa Pi Chapter at The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, extend greetings to all of our Brothers in Alpha. Even though we are a comparatively small chapter, with eight Brothers on campus, we are strong, and striving both individually and collectively, for excellence in the name of our great Fraternity. Since our last appearance in "Chapter News," we have taken three young men into Kappa Pi. They are Anthony Slaughter, now attending Morehouse in Atlanta, Spencer "Chico" Mead, and Gregory Stallings. In the wake of a very successful fall semester, the Brothers are anticipating an even more constructive and exciting spring semester. The annual Freshman Dinner in September was stupendous, as usual, with Brother Albert Herring delivering a very inspiring message. Capitalizing on the Earth, Wind & Fire concert held on campus, the Brothers threw an "after party," and collected over $200 for our scholarship fund. Thanksgiving found the Brothers sponsoring a dance, with admission being food for a Thanksgiving basket. The dance was so successful that the Brothers were able to give two very substantial and immensely appreciated Thanksgiving baskets. Three visits were made to a local Nursing Home, and have now become a Chapter project. We urge all Chapters to investigate your area; the elderly are in dire need of companionship and interaction with people other than the hospital staff. Other very successful projects were the membership drive for the NAACP, and a tutoring service for area schools. As usual, the social events of the year were given by Kappa Pi, with our fall Block Show being one that many will long remember. This semester the Brothers are planning even more activities. Seeds planted during the fall smokers seem to be sprouting, with six letters of interest being submitted. More prominent Chapter projects are the voter registration drive, a clothing drive for Easter, and, of course, our Black and Gold 47

Ball. Also, a scholarship will be given, in the name of Alpha, to a qualified, college bound, high school student in the spring. Kappa Pi Chapter is alive and definitely on the move in Williamsburg. We will be attempting to open better lines of communication with other Chapters in our area, and ask all other Chapters to do the same in theirs. The time has undoubtedly come when Alpha Men everywhere should be "First Of All." Now is the time that we should concentrate on truly becoming "Servants Of All," for the principles of our Fraternity, we must "Transcend All."

v^columbiQ u In February, Zeta Eta Chapter at Columbia University publicly celebrated African-American History Month. This was done in two ways; first, a yellow rose was presented to every sister on campus for Valentine Day. This represented a token of our appreciation for their support in our activities, but also it was our way of saying we support them as future leaders. Second, on February 2 4 , 1 980 we presented "A Salute to the AfroAmerican Woman." This program discussed the contributions women have made and are presently making in the total "struggle" of Afro-Americans. The topic was "The Challenges of the Afro-American Woman" and awards were presented to three outstanding Afro-American women who are meeting the challenge in three distinct fields: Ms. Margaret B. Young, Chairman of The Whitney M. Young

Young, Jr. Ms. Ernesta B. Procope, president of the E. G. Bowman Company, the first and only company on Wall Street to be owned by an AfroAmerican, received an award for contribution in the field of Business. Ms. Procope is married to Brother John L. Procope, publisher of the largest weekly Afro-American news publication in the United States, The Amsterdam News. (He was also present at The Salute To The Afro-American Woman). Ms. Charlayne Hunter-Gault, correspondent with MacNeil/Lehrer Report a news program on Public Broadcasting System television received an award for her contribution in the field of Journalism. Ms. Hunter-Gault was one of two students involved in the landmark case in the early 60's presented against the University of Georgia. The outcome of this case enabled Afro-Americans, for the first time, admission into a southern university that was predominately white. Ms. Hunter-Gault is married to Mr. Ronald Gault, Commissioner, Department of Employment for the city of New York, and is the daughter of Brother Reverend Dr. John H. Hunter of Atlanta, Georgia. We must also mention that Ms. Nazeda Davis, our Ms. Black and Gold Queen, a student at Columbia Law School, also spoke on the topic: The Challenges of the Afro-American Woman." We are never complacent.

Kappa Theta Lambda Chapter of Bergen County, NJ, has been thrusting forward in the true spirit of Alpha. Bergen County, located in northern New Jersey approximately 20 miles from the Big Apple (New York City), has a unique collection of Brothers involved in the professions, education, business, industry and government. Their dedication to Alpha and contributions to community service can be found in all aspects of life in the county. Activities completed this fraternity year include the September initiation of three candidates for Alpha. They are John Horner, a manager with IBM, Office Products Division; Larry Harris, an officer with the U.S. Customs Department; and Robert Copeland, an Engineer with Bell Labs. The chapter held an October social at the home of Brother Colden Raines. The affair, attended by Brothers, wives, and sweethearts, was a kickoff activity for the start of the fraternity year. We held an apple picking family The Sphinx / Summer 1980

This was a great family social outing. In keeping with the aims of Alpha we awarded a scholarship of $500 to Walter W. Watson III, who is attending Fairleigh Dickerson as a Pre-Med Student. Likewise, the chapter purchased a full page ad for the NAACP Journal ($100) for that organization's banquet and sponsored an "Over 30's Disco." The affair was coordinated by Brother Carlos Peay and Brother Percy Pollard (Ticket Chairman). Receipts netted more than $1,500 for the chapter. The affair was held at the Colonial Post (a minority owned restaurant) in Ridgewood, New Jersey. We ended 1979 with a gala Christmas party hosted by Brother Albert Small and his wife, Suzi. The affair was widely attended and provided the perfect setting for building the Christmas spirit. Activities planned for the remainder of the fraternity include: Martin Luther King Recognition Event, a Reclamation Smoker, a Formal Banquet/Dance, a Recognition Ceremony, plans for chapter housing, pledging activities, Education/Scholarship activities and support of local Community Action Organizations. The Chapter is off to a gret start and the Brothers are excited about responding to the call of Alpha â&#x20AC;&#x201D; "We Shall Transcend All."

Highlighting the weekend's activities was a commemoration program for the founders of Alpha Phi Alpha at the Omaha Hilton. In attendance were Brothers and guests from Beta Xi Lambda, Zeta Kappa Lambda, Beta Lambda and Beta Beta chapters. After a rousing introduction by Brother Jimmy Buford, Midwestern Vice President, Brother Morial challenged the Brothers, as well as the other Greeks present, to include on their agenda for the 80's the unfinished tasks of achieving full citizenship rights, and the exercise thereof, for all Black Americans. Brother Morial indicated that he had personally known and been acquainted with four of the seven Jewels and suggested that their call to action for us would be renewed efforts in the areas of human rights, education and scholarship, and creative solutions for the crime and poverty in our cities. Brother Dan Williams, President of Beta Xi Lambda, skillfully performed his

duties as Master of Ceremonies for the occasion. Following the impressive luncheon, an extended hospitality period was held during the afternoon for Brothers and guests. Brother Al Grice's spacious home was the site of the evening's social extravaganza. Party-going Brothers and guests dined, danced and socialized until the wee hours of the morning. The weekend ended with a church service held at Calvin Presbyterian Church. On Friday evening preceding the commemoration luncheon, Brother Morial spoke at the Fourth Annual Omaha Minority Business Awards Banquet at Omaha Hilton where some 700 persons were in attendance. Brother Virgil Chandler was Program and Publicity Chairman for this successful event. After this program, Brother Morial motored to Des Moines to attend a reception for Des Moines residents to raise money for the United Negro College Fund. This program, sponsored by the local Blacks in Management, included Governor Robert Ray and recently elected City Mayor Peter Crivaro who were on hand to extend official greetings to Brother Morial. It was a unique pleasure for the Brothers of the Midwest to share this weekend with an outstanding Alpha leader.

We, the Brothers of Epsilon Psi Chapter, begin each school year at the University of Missouri-Rolla by aiding the community in both a social and service aspect. Socially, we host a series of party weekends once a month beginning in September of every school year. Party weekend activities consist of two consecutive nights of serious partying and exciting daytime games. For the community of Rolla and St. Louis we host two service projects a semester. In Rolla, we aided the A.B.L.E. (Achievement of Better Lifestyle for the Elderly) Help Center in their efforts to relocate the Senior Citizens Home. We moved furniture and art supplies from the old location to the new Senior Citizens Home. The T.A.M.'s (Those Alpha Minded) of Epsilon Psi accompanied us on this project and helped make it successful. We also aided the North Side Team Ministry of St. Louis in their efforts to renovate a building for the use of a community help center. We cut the ministries construction expenses in half with our diligent, constructive engineering. We moved walls, made doors where there were none, repaired floors, etc. and just had a good time helping out. Also, this past year's activities included the arrival of the ship "Heracles." The Brothers of Epsilon Psi initiated Pierre McMurray and David Lindsey on September 15, 1 979. Neophyte Brothers Pierre and David are fast forming to the organization of Epsilon Psi at Rolla. Finally, we would like to acknowledge our statewide queen contest. The Brothers are proud to announce our first annual Miss Epsilon Psi Contest. This is the first time that the contest will be held on such a mammoth scale. The contest began Feb. 15, 1980 and

concluded on March 15, 1980. The candidates hail from seven major cities located in Missouri. The purpose of the contest is to choose the most dynamic and industrious young woman from these cities. Because of the indisputable beauty possessed by the candidates, beauty will not be a controlling factor in the selection. The candidates will be judged upon four points: 1) Concern for the general public, 2) Concern for the Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha, 3) Contributions to the Fraternity functions, and 4) Vote sales. We would like to acknowledge our respect for and pride in having these ladies as our candidates. All in all we had a successful year and we're looking forward to another successful year with the help of the Brothers. In closing, we would like to say to all Brothers of Alpha to take care in body, mind, and spirit.

moreheod state u With the love of fraternity in our hearts, the strong light in our eyes, and the hopes and dreams of all ALPHA men, we the Brothers of Xi Alpha chapter extend a warm and hearty ALPHA greeting to all our Brothers around the world. And, a special greeting to our Brothers in the mid-western region and to our new General President, may you have a successful term. Xi Alpha chapter, located here at Morehead State University, Morehead, Kentucky, is still striving to uphold the name of ALPHA within its Brothers, the university, and community. Since its inception in May of 1978, Xi Alpha has made twenty fine and outstanding Brothers in the name of ALPHA. We feel that the quote holds true when

speaking of our fraternity, "Only a chosen few, making it quality and not quantity." Presently, we are ten strong, and still moving to higher ground. The Brothers of Xi Alpha have a lot of fire and energy to burn; and to prove just that, a number of the chapter accomplishments are as follows: 1979, winner of homecoming Float Competition and $400 grand prize; 1980, the Brothers along with the fine ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha, held a Charity Ball for the destitute; 1979, with the aide of some very special ladies, the Brothers painted and worked on the Black Cultural Center for the use of minority students; 1979, winner of Black Greek Step Show; 1980, worked for the improvement of minority students within our predominantly white university, in SGA, the Senate, the Student Court, and committees; 1979-80, along with the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta we held church service for the minority students and townspeoploe. here at Xi Alpha we are indeed proud to be working for the betterment of mankind. So thus, the precepts set down by our beloved JEWELS are being followed and honored; and we are still striving to make those even greater. Our officers are, Brothers: Chris Turfy, President; Chris Bennett, Vice-President; Adrain Franklin, Secretary; Greg Threat, Treasurer; Joe Tuck, Sergeantof-Arms; Duane Bland, Dean of Pledges; and Jeff Stone, Associate Editor of the Sphinx. With Brothers, Gary Boyd, Mark Johnson and Luther Scruggs working diligently in the background, but up front in our hearts. We are also looking forward to our new school year, because we are planning bigger events than before. So if you need us Brothers, let us know, because we are definitely willing and able to work in the name of Alpha Phi Alpha. "So you better get on the move, because the Xi Alpha train is coming."

On February 24th, Kappa Chapter capped a busy year of activities by holding a very successful state convention. More business was taken care of and more fun had than in recent years, as conventioneers were extended the full service and facilities on Ohio State's large campus, and the open doors of the luxurious Alpha house 24-hours-a-day. As a Black fraternity on the largest university campus in the nation, Kappa Chapter has traditionally The Sphinx / Summer 1980

games in both intramural football and basketball, quite a feat on a campus of this size. William is a first year law student who still actively participates in all chapter events and he says "a Brother always has time for the frat." He is also the originator of the "Ohio spin" version of the Alpha walk which is sweeping the country. President Jimmy Williams, secretary Booker T. Smith and social chairman Kelvin Lagradee w e r e instrumental in producing O.S.U.'s first Black Homecoming Pageant this year which was a smashing success and received massive media coverage. Brothers Robert Ragins and Larry Squires were the instrumental factors behind Kappa Chapter's entry of a float in the homecoming parade. It was the first Black float in the history of Ohio State's traditional parade and was the source of great pride in the community itself. And "BIG" Brother Gary Dulin, whose fame is spreading across the midwestern region as he prepares to enter professional football, is the motivating force behind the recent Alpha House renovations and is also the "enforcer" of house rules which keeps the Alpha house the most respected, (and only) Black frat house on the yard. Kappa Chapter recently won the coveted state of Ohio Alpha basketball trophy and the Brothers are looking forward to taking on all comers, regionally and nationally, as they meanwhile continue striving to exemplify the high standards that have made Alpha Phi Alpha what it is today.

Before the close of this academic year, the Brothers of Alpha Mu worked tirelessly to uphold the tradition which Alpha has laid down as our stepping stones. We made the first presentation of our Civic Service Award during the fall; this quarter we followed with the first presentation of our Academic Award for outstanding scholastic achievement. We also co-sponsored a Law/Business Day with the Black Law Students Association. Likewise, we co-sponsored a program entitled "A Tribute to Black Women," that included an art and a book display. Earlier during the school year we commemorated the birthday of Brother Martin Luther King Jr., with a film on his life and two lectures, one political and one religious, dealing with the different aspects of Dr. King's movement. The speakers were Dr. Hycel Taylor, professor of Theology and Dr. (and

Brother) Ronald Bailey, professor of political science. During Black History Month we sponsored a dynamic speaker, Renault Robinson, leader of the Afro-American Patrolmans' League in Chicago. This year, as always, we are graduating the "old dogs" of the chapter. These include Aaron Hamb who is going on to study medicine at St. Louis University Medical Center. Michael Jackson is entering the working world as a chemical engineer in the Boston area, and Julius Washington is continuing his education at Northwestern's Graduate School of Management. We are sure that they will be with us in spirit as we will be with them. And as they leave, we welcome the addition of four neophytes: Christopher Morrison, Brian Smith, Daryl Williams and Darryl Young, ail freshmen at Northwestern. As the summer draws nearer to August, the Brothers of AM are planning a chapter Reunion to take place concurrently with the beginning of the National Convention. The reunion will bring together Alpha Mu Alums in grand style, and place all of us at the front doors of the Palmer House in Chicago. Alumni Brothers are asked to contact Andre Bell, 6 3 3 Clark St., Evanston, IL.

The chapter feels greatly indebted to the Alpha wives and to Brother Adolphus Young for making this affair so great. Brother Murvin Enders and the Educational Committee have just completed another successful raffle in support of the funds for fraternity house maintenance. Not enough can be said for the Brothers and wives who worked so hard to make this one of your most successful efforts in recent years. Brother Enders, incidentally, does not limit his activity to Alpha but is recognized as an outstanding leader in church and community activities as well. He was recently honored with a Testimonial at the First Baptist Church of Kimball. Brother Booker T. Stephens, newly elected to the State Legislature, sponsored a bill making Brother Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a State holiday. The bill was passed overwhelmingly, 83-3, in the House of Delegates. The bill now goes to the Senate and from there to Gov. Jay Rockefellow.

The first night featured the Miss Black and Gold Contest; it was highly entertaining and the cultural highlight of the convention. The lovely and talented young ladies were outstanding in their presentations. This made the selection of Miss Black and Gold a difficult task. Miss Charlotte Reed, a student at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, was the winner. Georgia State director, Lorenzo R. Manns, opened the three convention business sessions. The morning session was devoted to reports, appointment of committees, and presentation of national, regional and state officers. At noon we met for convention photos and lunch. The Alphabettes were hostesses for the ladies luncheon and fashion show. The fashion show featured unique designs in women's clothing made from textiles. The textile industry is a leading industry in this area. The ladies toured the West Point Pepperelle Textile Mill Store. Later was a workshop. Moderators for the workshop were Brothers James Jackson, Assistant Southern Regional Vice-President; Mingo Clark, Southern Regional Vice-President, and Walter Sapp of the Million Dollar Fund Drive. Chapter displays were exhibited in the convention hall. The final business session featured committee reports, a memorial service for Brothers catering Omega Chapter, announcements and the Alpha hymn. The Grand State Formal Banquet was the highlight of the convention. The banquet speaker was Brother Mingo Clark, Southern Regional VicePresident. Brother Clark's profound message was a tribute and a challenge to Alpha men as he emphatically warned all, "We should be encouraged by the gains we have made . . . but not satisfied." Awards, presentations, announcements and the Alpha hymn ended the 24th Annual Georgia State Convention. An outstanding Brother in attendance and a participant in the convention activities was Brother Ozell Sutton, past vice-president of the southern region. He presently serves as regional director of the Southeast Region Community Relations Service, U.S. Department of Justice.

state of Florida. To uphold our name we have had such community service programs as Thanksgiving and Easter basket donations, scholarship awards to outstanding students and Halloween treats for needy kids. Our donation of $600 to the Millon Dollar Fund Drive is tops in the state. We urge all chapters to aid the cause. These programs have been possible through participation of our Brothers and implementation by our officers: Michael Chambers, President; Adrian Allen, Vice-President; Roger Williams, Secretary; Amos Brown, Treasurer; Edward Woodbury, Parliamentarian; Edward Jones, Editorto-the-Sphinx, and Anthony Stanley, Historian. Our advisor is Mr. Ike James who joined our faculty this year. Mr. James, a graduate of Florida A and M, Beta Nu chapter, has been a very beneficial addition to our program. We have also increased our chapter's membership with two new lines in '79: "Two the Hard Way," Roger Williams and Sterling Belford; "The Outlaws," Jimmy Edwards, Lawrence Mack, David Henderson III, Darrel Hickman, Michael Ferguson, Fabian Hankerson, Derrick Burdgess, and Eugene Van Jones. These Brothers crossed the sands in the winter and spring quarters respectively. We also have a line of Sphinxmen this year. They are: Barron Player, Ronald Pittman, Greg Slater, Vernest Pinckney, Willie Ward, Carl Cunningham, Andre' Shipp, Darrie Bouie, and Tony Bryant. After a rather successful intramurals program in which we emerged campus basketball champs, our chapter is working hard on our third annual Black and Gold Ball. Theta Sigma is also proud to acknowledge the presence of Past General President Thomas W. Cole, Sr., as a member of our faculty. Dr. Cole, one of

the highest ranking officials on our camus, does not allow his duties to prevent him from aiding us whenever a problem arises. It is truly an honor and privilege to have a man of his background and stature on our side. His dedication to his work and to others are qualities all Alpha men should uphold. We hope that this is a very successful year for all Brothers and chapters. Keep on striving for Alpha, yourselves and all others. In Brotherly love, the Brothers of Theta Sigma Chapter.

It is the upmost pleasure to announce to you some of Beta Omicron's accomplishments at Tennessee State University. On November 2 1 , 1979, 25 additional Brothers were initiated into our dear fraternity. This makes our chapter 38 Brothers strong and financial. With the increased size of our chapter, we here at Beta Omicron never falter when it comes to hard work and dedication for our dear fraternity. A prime example, is that we are well on our way towards our $500 donation for the million dollar fund drive. We believe strongly that we, as Alphamen, must be first of all, servants of all, and together we must transcend all. Since the majority of our Brothers maintain a 3.0 average or above on a 4.0 scale, its no wonder that our chapter dominates the major offices on our campus. These include the following: President of Student Government Assoc, Chairman of Student Election Commission, President of Pan-Hellenic (Standing, left to right): Brothers Charles Moore, Robert H. Thompson, Blanton Mitchell, Jerome Lofton, Charles Morton, Nathaniel Hankerson, Willie Allen. (Sitting, left to Council, right): President of TSU Chicago and Memphis Clubs, President of Honors Brothers Floyd Lyons, Leonard Foster, Ronald De Hart, Raleigh Rawls, Esq., Nathaniel Program, President Kappa Delta Phi Greene, and James De Hart, Esq., of Zeta Alpha Lambda.

Honor Society, Associate Editor of Meter School weekly school paper, Secretary and Parliamentarian of PanHellenic Council, and many others too numerous to mention. This truly shows that Beta Omicron is continuing in the leadership legacy at TSU. We, as Brothers, show others that if they are to transcend, it must be through service to the masses of mankind, and not through a selfish aloofness which specialized training tends to develop. We are definitely one of the channels that has taught college men that they must learn to organize and unite their purposes for common ends. Earlier our chapter saw a strong need to remind people that a "voteless people is a hopeless people" so in doing so our civic project was a voters registration drive, realizing the importance of the citizens in elections of governmental officials in terms of participation. We proudly report mission accomplished. In terms of school support, Beta Omicron focuses its attention on the TSU-UTN merger. It was our job to find out the facts and relate them to the students. In addition, our representative, Brother Ronald Ashley won Student Government Association President and was resonsible for rewriting of the new merger constitution for the new TSU. One of Beta Omicron prime concerns is to concentrate upon the development of young children, our future, and our destiny. In assuring Black youths a future, the Brothers of Beta Omicron sponsored a party for members of the Preston Taylor Community Head Start Center. This is an area of under development in which many of us forget or refuse to look back as we succeed in life. Here we participated in various forms of entertainment, served refreshments, and presented each child with a gift. The volunteer time Brothers gave led to well over $100 donated to the head start program from the government. Our reward for this effort was one of love and gratification, and pride in knowing that the men of Beta Omicron has a future as well as a destiny on the rise. It is indeed a fact that not all great men are Alpha men; but all Alphas are great men. Beta Omicron holds its fair share of academic scholars, outstanding leaders and men of quality. During the 1979-80 school year our motto has been, "Alpha! The University of Brotherly love." B.O. is leading in donations to the $80,000 fund drive 56

for one of our students who must undergo a serious operation. This truly shows our brotherly love. At last, the Brothers of Beta Omicron would like to say good-bye and good luck to the senior Brothers of our chapter.

Society, which requires a 3.3 average over a three year period, inducted 20 new members this fall and five were members of Delta Kappa. The chapter is currently State Stomp and Basketball Champs and will go into the convention with the intentions repeating as well as attaining more accomplishments. A Gold Pyramid topped with a sphinx head and adorned with the chapter sweethearts was this year's float entry in the homecoming parade. The float won first place in the Greek category, second overall. In a continuing effort to reach the community, we sponsored our Annual Little Miss Black and Gold Pageant for the young girls between 6 and 10 years of age. We are proud to say the pageant was a success with the contestants receiving an award for their efforts. Proceeds from the pageant went to St. Jude Hospital in Memphis. In the political arena DK is working to keep Alpha "First of All." The Brothers distributed material, designed signs and worked at the polls to aid Brother Joseph Travillion in his successful bid for Claiborne County Superintendent of Education. The chapter performed in the Benefit Greek Show for the Heart Association. We also held an annual road block in the city of Fayette with the collection going to the March of Dimes. Delta Kappa is a chapter of 28 Brothers, with an anticipation growth in the spring. We are strong in number, but we find our real strength in unity; and with a tireless effort we will continue to "set the standards" in keeping Alpha first.

fraternal greeting to all our Brothers in Alpha Land. The officers for the 1980 school year are: Francell Flood, President; Jeffery McCain, Vice-President; Kenneth Mallard, Editor; David Belgrave, Corresponding Secretary; Lawrence Brandon, Recording Secretary; John Wesley, Parliamentarian; Steve Watkins, Dean of Pledges and Treasurer. Three new Brothers were inducted this past fall. They are Lawrence Brandon, Kenneth Mallard, and David Belgrave. These new Brothers are continuously striving to uphold the high standards of Alpha. The chapter size is now seven strong. The Brothers held their annual Founders Day Ceremony in the first week of December. It was a special event, where the Brothers acknowledged the growth and progress of the fraternity and also the twenty-one year existence of the Epsilon Zeta Chapter. Two of the founders of Epsilon Zeta were present for the event with Brother Major Boyd being the featured speaker for the grand occasion. Every Brother's heart was touched as he took a prayer of rededication to uphold Alpha's aims, goals, and to assure the high standing that our founders envisioned for Alpha Phi Alpha. The Brothers were busy in November and December collecting goods for their annual goodwill donations to the Salvation Army and to needy persons in surrounding areas. The Brothers collected seventy-five pounds of food and clothing. Brother Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday was celebrated by the Brothers of Alpha everywhere. It has been well documented the tremendous contributions of this Brother to the Civil Rights movement and to Blacks. The Brothers of (EZ) took pride in participating in a march scheduled on his birthday that started on campus and ended downtown. Pamphlets were handed out to help build support to make Brother King's birthday a national holiday. The state convention was held Feb. 1-2, with (EZ) being represented. The theme for this year's state convention was "Encouraged But Not Satisfied." This theme suggests a revival of the spirit of the late Brother King, "Let us be reminded that our fight for freedom has just begun, and we shall overcome." The convention was rewarding, with the Brothers enjoying the fellowship and exchange of ideas. The Brothers sponsored a Valentine's Day Raffle which was a success. Future events planned for the chapter The Sphinx / Summer 1980

mented an outstanding idea by Brother Maurice Spears. This was a prisoner release project which allowed prisoners to be released in the custody of the Brothers once a week. Likewise, Brother Greg Hailey introduced a speaker series that brought established business professionals to Shaw University classrooms to talk about job opportunities. Also several Brothers are involved in major campus activities, Brother Ted Savage works as Gospel Director at WSHA-FM while Brothers Spears, Brooks, and Chapman also work in station operations.

The Brothers of Beta Rho Chapter at Shaw University have enjoyed a busy fall and spring semester. The Brothers returned to school with a new enthusiasm for showing the "light of Alpha." To start the semester off on the right track five of the eleven Brothers participated in the freshman orientation procedures. They were selected for their leadership qualities. Those Brothers were: Al Chapman, Anthony Midgett, Avery McAllister, Leon Brooks, and Ted Savage. When it came to projects, the men of Beta Rho showed the. way on October 18, 1979 by presenting three lovely pieces of artwork to the University before a large lunch time crowd with a formal ceremony. Several Brothers participated in tutorial programs at area junior high schools, and the Brothers sponsored a senior citizens trip to the movies and visited the Mason citizens home on a regular basis. During the Thanksgiving holiday we donated seventeen baskets of food to the local YMCA. The chapter imple-

fisk u The Brothers of Alpha Chi Chapter at Fisk University, Nashville, TN, extend greetings to Alpha Brothers everywhere. We are hopeful that this decade will be a fraternal, productive and successful one for all. Our chapter has engaged in a number of activities which we hope have been beneficial to the Nashville community, our chapter, and the Fraternity as a whole. Just a few of the projects we participated in last semester were: the sickle cell anemia drive with Meharry Medical College; tutorial program with the United Methodist Neighborhood Center (Nashville); a campus beautification project; and the Salvation Army Christmas Bell Ringing Collections. Alpha Chi's biggest project for 1980 is a Memorial Scholarship fund in memory of the late Brother Kevin Davenport, who entered the Omega Chapter last spring. This scholarship will be awarded to a sophomore biology major each year. Rev. (Brother) Wilson Q. Welch, Jr. was honored by the chapter for his guidance over twenty years of service as faculty and chapter advisor. Alpha Chi plans to make great strides in the near future pertaining to the community, the school and any other endeavors where the Alpha Spirit is needed. It is our belief that the strength and future of our chapter lies in "how much we can help ourselves and society." The belief that Alpha stands for achievement is constantly impressed

upon Alpha Chi Brothers and all prospective pledges. Consequently Alpha Chi is proud to announce the achievements of its Brothers: Brother George Norman's induction into Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities; Brother Kenneth Cook's induction into Beta Kappa Chi National Scientific Honor Society; and many of the chapter Brothers are on the Dean's List. Alpha Phi Alpha is the light of the World! In this decade Alpha Chi plans to add a little more voltage to the power.

tennessee Greetings Brothers in Alphadom. We bring you greetings from Psi Lambda Chapter, Chattanooga, TN, the home of the "Chattanooga Choo Choo." This year we boarded the Alpha Train, "Brotherhood and Service," to make our journey through 1979-80. Our destination is "Service To All Mankind." Our engineer, Brother Archie Taylor, president, has planned "Stops" we hope to make during our trip. We started the train rolling with an enthusiastic re-dedication meeting and clean-up day at our Fraternity House. This brought a representative response. The Alphabettes were at the next "Stop"; they entertained us with a gala party. This was held at our Fraternity house which was decorated certainly, to fit the occasion. "Gala" really was the word for the costumes, food, decorations and fun. The train continued to our third "Stop," Founders' Day. We joined with Eta Phi Chapter at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) for this affair which was a closed banquet with a speaker and true Alpha Spirit. Brother Fred Jinks was speaker for this occasion and developed eloquently the theme "Basic Ideals of Our Alpha Phi Alpha." Our fourth "Stop" was a festive Christmas party for our wives and sweethearts. In addition to games, food, and dancing, we showered them with gifts and prizes. At the appointed hour, a special announcement was made naming Psi Lambda's "Man of the Year." The award was presented to Brother Albert M. Miller, Jr., Teacher, Organist, Social Worker, Clerk at Teacher's Credit Union, and Youth Counselor. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from Tennessee State University and has received a plaque for service as secretary from Psi

Lambda. Brother Miller has been an Alpha Man for over 42 years. His wife, Pauline, shared the spotlight with him. His daughter is Mrs. Karen Miller Tatum of Tuskegee Institute, Alabama and he has two grandchildren. The surprise announcement was highlighted by singing the Alpha Phi Alpha Hymn and warm congratulations. Several Brothers have paid their pledges to the "Million Dollar Fund." We are also a sponsor of the "Study of Afro-American Life and History." Each year, Psi Lambda awards scholarships to deserving male seniors at our local high schools. This is a part of our education program that we sponsor every year. We also have an important part in the Big Brothers Program. We welcome back to our chapter, Brother Virgil Varnell McGee, a retired Navy officer. Brother Herbert Smith was recently elected president of the local Pan Hellenic Council and Brother George A. Key is local president of NAACP. Through Dr. Clifford L. Hendris, we enthusiastically support the "PUSH" program in our schools. Brothers help by tutoring pupils at local high schools. We strive to keep a positive relationship with Eta Phi, our undergraduate chapter at U.T.C. We include them in all our activities to strengthen our relationship. In Psi Lambda, we dedicate ourselves to "the principles as set forth in the Alpha Phi Alpha Hymn, "Manly deeds, Scholarship, and Love for All Mankind."

poine college "Celebrating Ten Years of Black and Gold" was this year's theme for the Eta Alpha Chapter here at Paine College. The highlight for this year as far as events is concerned was our highly successful "Alpha Affair Ball." The significance being that this marked the first time an event of this magnitude and caliber was held by an Alpha undergraduate chapter here in Augusta. The gala event which was held at the spacious Thunderbird Inn honored the nine men who were responsible for the genesis of Eta Alpha Chapter. A 14K gold plaque was presented to the "9 Pearls of Eta Alpha," and justifiably so. These nine prominent individuals are still casting distinguished shadows on the present members of our elite and growing chapter. May the memory of these continue to lead us "onward and upward toward the light." Eta Alpha has grown over the last ten years and we would like to acknowledge the fact that a new Brother has The Sphinx / Summer 1980

winston solem state Greetings from the Beta lota chapter of Winston Salem State University. The Brothers of the Beta lota chapter are upholding the aims and traditions of Alpha in the highest manner. The men of Bl hold various offices within the Student Government at Winston Salem State. The Brothers with offices are: Brother Bobby Bennett, President of SGA; Brother Wavey Williams, Director of Student Affairs; and Brother Ronald O. Davis, Director of Social Affairs. Other offices held by the men of Bl are: Brother Craig Umstead, Senior class Vice-president; Brother Clifton Sparrow, Senior class representative; Brother Ronald Hamilton, Junior class Vice-president; Brother Rapheal Hauser, Junior class Treasurer; and Brother William Peterson, Junior class Public Relations Officer. As you can see, the Brother of Bl stress the concept of leadership very seriously. Not only in Student Government do the Brothers of Bl hold a major role, but leadership consistency has prevailed at Beta lota. Three sons of Bl have held the office of Assistant State Director to the Association of North Carolina Alphamen since the inception of this office: Brother Fred Gibson 77-78; Brother Cepil Cates 78-79; and Brother Bobby Bennett 79-80. Brother Bennett recently received the Outstanding Service Award to ANCA for his diligent efforts in this position. Even within the military ranks the sons of Bl have proven their leadership potential. Since the inception of the R.O.T.C. program at Winston Salem State, an Alphaman has held the position of Battalion Commander; in 1977-80 Brother Dimitri Belmont held this position, the year 1978-79 Brother Cecil Cates was in the office, and for the present 79-80 year Brother Ronald Hamilton is in office. 60

Not only do the Brothers of Beta lota excel in leadership, but the meaning of service is not lost to the men of Beta lota. During the week of Nov. 11-17, the first annual Alpha Phi Alpha Education Week was sponsored by the mighty sons of Bl. A crowning achievement of this week was the initiating of the first annual Joseph N. Patterson Oratorical contest. This contest was named in honor of a dedicated administrator, pastor, and humanitarian who passed into the Omega chapter in 1978. The purpose and theme of this contest is the development of academic excellence and personal enrichment for students at Winston Salem State University. Another program sponsored by mighty Bl chapter was the fourth annual Gospel Expos, featuring various gospel groups from the Winston Salem area. The proceeds from this event went to the United Negro College Fund and the N.A.A.C.P. and the Urban League. During the spring semester of 1979, the Brothers of Beta lota were very instrumental in chartering the Xi Eta chapter at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, NC. The men of Beta lota have distinguished themselves in all endeavors at W.S.S.U. Five men of Alpha at W.S.S.U. have been named to Who's Who among students at American Colleges and Universities; these Brothers are: Brother Jay Farabee, Brother Wavey Williams, Brother Bobby Hunt, Brother Rapheal Hauser, and Brother Ronald O. Davis. We would like to challenge all chapters to transcend and excel so they can truly remain "First of All."

middle tennessee state u We, the "Mighty Brothers of Kappa Xi," extend a cordial greeting to all brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. The Kappa Xi Chapter is located at

Middle Tennessee State university in Murfreesboro, TN. The chapter was founded on March 25, 1975. Being a relatively young chapter has not impeded the progress and rising recognition of our chapter. We are Tennessee's Chapter of the Year for 1978-1979. All of the Brothers in the chapter worked very hard and diligently to achieve the position of being the number one chapter in the State of Tennessee. We are active in many activities and community service projects, and we never run out of things to do. Recently, we have collected monies for the March of Dimes, sold candy for the Civitan Club, and in doing so, won the 100% sales award. We have also participated in and won the Red Cross Blood Drive. These are just a few of the activities that we undertook as a chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha. What we do at MTSU is not all work, because we do find time for giving various activities and functions on campus. Kappa Xi owns and operates a disco system complete with lights. We also do parties for other Greeks and social organizations on campus as a service to them. We host an annual spring Greek Show, and we participate in and occasionally win other Greek Shows in the area. The Kappa Xi Brothers, even though very active, have not forgotten the most important aspect of our great fraternity, academic achievement. Since our founding, we have maintained the highest overall grade point average of all other Greek organizations on campus of which there are fifteen. Kappa Xi is a very versatile chapter and the Brothers make Kappa Xi what it is today. We hope to progress more and more in the future because the Alphas are on the move in the '80's.

Members of Kappa Xi are (I. to r.): Norman Crossing, Egar Scott, Hubert Johnson, F Anthony, David DeBose, Maurice Danner, Leroy Hodges, Rutherford Overton and Morris, Out front is Brother Ivory "Rappin" Beck. The Sphinx / Summer 1980


alabama state u The Brothers of the Beta Upsilon Chapter would once again like to extend warm greeting to the other chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha. At this time, another quarter at Alabama State has come to an end. It is the end to what turned out to be a very successful and prosperous quarter. On February 2, the ASU Hornets played the Alabama A&M University Bulldogs at the C. J. Dunn Sports Arena which is located on ASU's campus. At this game, the Brothers donated a U.S. flag to the school. The flag was given to the Brothers by the Clanton, AL Post Office. This game and twenty-five other games were won by the Hornets, finishing the season with a 26-1 record. This accomplishment made the Hornets number 1 in the National Athletic Inter Collegiate Association (NAIA). This fete made the students at ASU very proud; however, it had Brothers smiling from ear to ear. The reason being that the coach of this fine team is none other than a Brother of Alpha Phi Alpha, Brother James Oliver. Also, the graduate assistant of the team, Johnny Mitchell, is a Brother in Alpha. Mitchell was one of the star players of the 1978-79 Hornets. Another key team player and Brother is Jerome Powell. Powell is an aggressive defensive player. Powell and Mitchell are both transfer students from Kentucky State University. Beta Upsilon is very proud of these three Brothers. The Brothers also hosted several extra-curricular functions which proved to be a remedy for school-day blues. We hosted a skating party and two dances, one which was for a Heart Fund Drive. Over 400 patrons attended the skating party. Johnny Forrester, the advisor of Beta Upsilon, and Brother Joseph Lacy, a graduate Brother, were among the exuberant crowd. The Brothers, following the event, stepped to show their appreciation. Finally, the state convention for Alabama was held in Selma, AL. Beta Upsilon was represented in the meetings, and also in the Miss Black and Gold pageant. The Brothers of Beta Upsilon were very well represented by Miss Felicia Jackson. Miss Jackson, a sophomore from Mobile, took first place in the competition. The Brothers are very proud of their charming Queen and the achievement of the chapter this past year.

u of tennessee - knoxville That Alpha Phi Alpha is the only officially recognized Black fraternity at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with full chapter status, (Mu lota Chapter) has not placed it into a state of complacency. We are, and will always, work to stay first of all, servants of all and transcending all at UTK. 1980 began as a busy and productive one for us. We began by holding our second Alpha Week January 13-19. This year's theme was "Illuminating the new decade with the light from the past." As with last year the week began with a wine and cheese fellowship for college and alumni Brothers in Knoxville and our Angels. In remembrance of Brother Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, the chapter co-sponsored a march and a commemoration service in his honor. This event was held in conjunction with our Black Student Union. The night of Dr. King's birthday we also gathered for a rededication service to rededicate ourselves to the fraternity. On Wednesday the campus had the opportunity to hear one of America's distinguished scholars. Dr. J. Reuben Sheeler, a visiting University of Houston history professor, spoke on the future role of Blacks and the past role that Black colleges and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has played in training our leaders. Brother Sheeler was initiated at Knoxville College, Gamma Omi-

cron chapter. He is also the man who has allowed Mu lota to name our first speaker series after. Being at a predominately white university, Black faculty and staff are not in great abundance. And those who work closely with students and for students are few. However, there are those who do work diligently for the betterment of Black students. In an effort to recognize the contributions of these Black Faculty members we instituted a Black Faculty and Staff Award. Our first recipient was Juanita Fain, UTK assistant director of financial aid. Last year we conducted a blood pressure screening during Alpha Week. This year the screening was continued and it was even more successful. More than 180 people had their blood pressures taken by Mu lota Brothers. Always working to better the relationship between students and particularly our fellow Greeks the Brothers hosted a Greek tea in the Panhellenic Building. We would like to again thank the Zeta Delta sorors of Alpha Kappa Alpha for their help. The highlight of Alpha Week '80 was a visit to campus by members of the Tennessee Congressional Black Caucus. A luncheon was held with campus student leaders and issues of interest to the students were discussed. A dinner was also held with some of UTK's administrators. On the night of our Million Dollar Disco, designed to raise money for the million dollar fund drive, a sit-in was staged on campus. The chapter was supportive of the sit-in by cancelling the dance. It was done in an effort to stop the administration from closing down our Black Cultural Center (BCC) and to keep its director from being unjustly transferred. We are also proud to say that Alven Whiting, chapter president, was very instrumental in the struggle to keep the BCC open, with its original director. The Brothers have also been supportive of the cause by allowing our house to be used for meetings by the students working on this most important matter. The quarter will end during March but not before allowing us to visit a local nursing home to entertain the elderly and by giving a "Go West Disco" at the student center. We look forward to seeing our Brothers in Chi-town. Until then, hold Alpha high. 61

(L to R) Brothers George Dunlap, Lesley Bellinger and Julius L. Chambers at the 40th birthday of Beta Nu Lambda.

tionally renowned Brother Julius Chambers, speaker for the evening, was presented by Brother Preston Allison. Beta Nu Lambda's "Man-ofthe-Year" recipient was Brother Lesley Bellinger. This award was presented by Brother Rudolph Hendricks. Brother Chambers challenged the audience of Brothers, wives, sweethearts and friends by informing us of the strides made in Civil Rights, and what his predictions are of the '80's. His remarks evolved from the theme, "Alphas in Government: Planning for the Future of Our Children." His illustrious reference to landmark Supreme Court decisions, some North Carolina State Supreme Court rulings, and some local Court proceedings, caused the audience to realize the importance and determination of Alpha men to become more involved in the political arena in the '80's. The Founders' Day Committee is composed of past recipients of the "Man-of-theYear Award."

florida We, the Brothers of Mu Zeta Lambda, are pleased to announce favorable results from our first annual Men of Tomorrow contest, hosted in December. Some real fine local talent was showcased among our male high school students and we really look forward with great anticipation towards hosting it again this fall. Again, our thanks goes out to Brother Phillip Walker for presenting this worthy and much needed project to the chapter. Mu Zeta Lambda, through the efforts of Brother James Thomas, participated in the Toys for Tots Program held annually in the city of Bartow, Fla. at one of the Day Care Centers. This project is designed to help insure that a Merry Christmas is experienced by certain kids who, without this program, would not experience the same. And judging from the smiles on the faces of the recipients, this project was a total success. In closing, as we prepare to break for the summer months, we are busily The Sphinx / Summer 1980

SOUTHWEST langston u The Brothers of the Beta Kappa Chapter, located at Langston University, have been engaged in a "Back to Basics" type of program. They have gone back to establishing the ideas and principles on which the fraternity was formed. One of the main projects is a free all-school picnic for the students of Langston University. Food, fun, games and musical entertainment are all furnished courtesy of the Brothers. It was a big success for the spring of 1979 and for the spring of 1980. Last fall, Beta Kappa participated in the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Drive on Labor Day. A donation of $25 was made while the Brothers helped run concessions for the local drive, being sponsored by KOFM radio station in Oklahoma City. Beta Kappa also participated in the St. Jude's Christian Church Bike-a-thon and the American Red Cross Blood Mobile. In October of '79, the Brothers sponsored a Mr./Miss Little Langston Pageant and Dance for the children of the Langston Elementary school. During the last year, the Beta Kappa "Disco Machine," which

features Brother Doyle Moore, supplied musical entertainment for events sponsored by numerous organizations such as the Black Heritage Club, and the ladies of Zeta Phi Beta, Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sororities. During the week of Founders' Day last December, Beta Kappa sponsored a Pre-Founder's Banquet. Brother William Parker of Beta Epsilon Lambda, was guest speaker. Brother Parker gave a very emotional and inspirational speech to the college Brothers. Beta Kappa also sponsored an all-school assembly which featured a dynamic speech given by Brother A. Visiano Johnson, one of three Black Oklahoma State representatives. The first two weeks of March saw an eruption of ALPHA on the campus of Langston University. Starting off with the mighty Brothers of Beta Kappa sponsoring their first annual "Night of the Black and Gold: Disco Explosion." The event featured stomp shows by the Brothers and their angels, plus shows by the Brothers of Zeta Zeta, Epsilon Epsilon and Zeta Sigma. On March 12, the 83rd birthday of Langston University, Brother Dr. Ernest Holloway, Sr., was officially inaugurated as fourteenth president of LU. This date also marked the 48th birthday of the Beta Kappa Chapter. In honor of this, on the evening of March 12, the Brothers sponsored a Founder's Day Banquet in nearby Guthrie, Oklahoma. Members of Beta Kappa, Zeta Gamma Lambda and other state chapters were present. The guest speaker on this occasion was Brother Michael Price, Editor-in-Chief of the "Sphinx" magazine. Brother Price gave a very emotional speech and was later presented, along with Dr. Holloway, a plaque from the Beta Kappa president, Ernest Holloway, Jr. The next Saturday, an Inaugural Ball for Brother Holloway took place; in attendance was James R. Williams, General President and Brother Ozell Sutton, a

Greetings from the tenacious Brothers of Kappa lota Chapter located at Southern Arkansas University, Magnolia, AR. The chapter was established in 1975 under the leadership of our advisor, Brother Alvin Brannon. During the fall and spring semesters, Kappa lota initiated six Brothers to carry on the ideals of Alpha Phi Alpha. The name of the line was "The Dirty Dozen Minus Six." The members were: Derwin "Too Cold" Roy, Ray "Dr. Ecstasy" Carroll, David "Mr. Debonnair" Monk, Danny "Mind Magic" Lowe, Kenneth "Black Caesar" Cooksie, and Larry "Master Mind" Rhodes. All of these Brothers began the journey "Toward the Light" during the fall of 1979. During the spring semester, four Kappa lota Brothers attended the Regional Convention at Galveston, Tx. We also crowned a new Miss A-Phi-A, Miss Kathy Johnson. The Brothers of Kappa lota are always eager to serve people in any way possible. In keeping with the idea of "Servants of AH" the Brothers participated in the annual

The Brothers of the Mighty Theta Chi Chapter at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA extend greetings to all of our Brothers in Alpha. We hope that this fraternal year has been both productive and successful as ours has been. As always the Brothers of Theta Chi chapter strive hard to hold high the name of Alpha. This past year the chapter participated in various community projects and fund raising activities for charity. During the fall our social activities included a Brotherhood Auction in which Brothers were auctioned off for a day's service. The money was then given to sickle cell anemia. Brothers, along with the AKA's, visited the Nursing Homes and Day Care Centers monthly. A Halloween party was given to these children and escort service given that night. Other activities for the Fall included: food baskets for the needy on Thanksgiving and Christmas, tutoring services for fellow students, trash pick-up, a voter-registration drive, a blood drive,

and an escort service for female students at night to and from the library. Activities for the Spring included the Brothers Annual Spring Talent Show, and collecting money on streets for the American Heart Association. Theta Chi Chapter held its 4th Annual Banquet on April 25 in which Brother Henry Bellaire was the guest speaker. During the banquet the "Brother of the Year" award was given to Gary Sanders; also Miss Linda Cooksey was crowned Miss Alpha. The new officers for 1980-81 are: Herbie Murphy, President; Vincent Williams, Vice-President; Robert Gordon, Recording Secretary; Leon Potter, Treasurer; Keith Epps, Corresponding Secretary; R. Lewis, Sargent-at-Arms; G. Hooper, Parliamentarian; Leon Potter, Chaplain and Editor to the Sphinx. The chapter is also very proud to have Brother Jarrot Handy in our ranks. He is nationally ranked number 6 in the long jump. As you can see Theta Chi still leads the state in the working of Alpha. We raise our heads up with pride and integrity as we dedicate ourselves to the goals and aims of our great Fraternity.

louisiano On October 25, 1979, the first of a series of meetings to formulate plans for bringing an Alumni Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity to St. Martin Parish was held at the Notre Dame Parish Hall. Impressed by the potential for the development of a strong and viable chapter in the parish, the national organization chartered Nu Theta Lambda on February 6, 1980. St. Martinville, LA, home of the famous Evangeline Oak, is the charter seat of the organization. The Chapter's Chartering Ceremony was held at the Western Sizzlin Steak House located in New Iberia, Louisiana. Charter members, their guests and representatives of the various Greek organizations in the Acadiana area enjoyed an impressive installation ceremony. The keynote address was delivered by Brother Dr. James Prestiage, Systems Vice-President for academic affairs at Southern University. Brother Jimmie Harmon, President Eta Gamma Lambda, installed the charter line. In accepting the charter, Brother Lawrence M. Abraham, committed the chapter to an ambitious program of service to the community and the high standards set by the seven founding Jewels in 1906. The Sphinx / Summer 1 9 8 0

WEST son jose state u Greetings from the 1980 Western Region Chapter of the Year — Epsilon Mu Chapter, at San Jose State University. " E M " was awarded this honor for our continued service in the community and, as in the Alpha tradition, for providing strong, influential leadership on campus. To give you an indication of our "spheres of influence" on the SJSU campus, here's a rundown of the individual Brothers of this chapter and what their contributions are to the Black student as a whole: Herbert Barry — an influential member of the Associated Students Program Board which, along with Epsilon Mu, was instrumental in bringing Brother Dick Gregory to San Jose State as a Speaker. Juan Sigler — President of

the Black Student Union, which provided several cultural events as well as entertainment events for Black History Month. Sigler was recently chosen as Western Region Brother of the Year. Virgil Brown — President of the Black Business Students Association and recently elected to serve as A. S. Director of Ethnic Affairs for the Fall semester. Bertram Ashe — Jazz Program Director at the school radio station, KSJS. The station provides quality public affairs programming to educate and inform our Black listeners (not to mention the best jazz anywhere). Anthony Van — the only Black, Associated Students Council member, at all times speaking up for the Black student at council meetings. As a chapter, Epsilon Mu has run several events in the past semester. The Third Annual All-California Greek Show, 1980, was again a huge success. This, the highlight of the Alpha Weekend, was an evening of history presentations and marchdown competition. From the proceeds, a large sum of money was donated to the Black Council of Santa Clara. The morning of the Greek Show an Alpha'Miniconference was held to bring unity among the West Coast chapters. Beware, ye Brothers of the West Coast (and also ye Brothers nationwide), Greek Show IV, 1 9 8 1 , is now in the planning stages and promises to be just as live! Epsilon Mu Chapter, believing that a " v o t e l e s s people is a hopeless people," initiated a voter registration drive on campus. The men of E. M. were also instrumental in getting a

Black City Council member elected to public office in San Jose. While we have been extremely active in the community, Epsilon Mu has been active within the chapter as well. "The Brothers of Zanj" successfully crossed the Burning Sands of Alpha on March 22, 1980. The five new Brothers are Gary "Clipper" Banks, Virgil Brown, "Frankie D" Daniel, Keith Harper, and Ronald Jackson. Under the guidance of Brother Anthony McDaniels, Dean of Pledges, these Brothers pledged using a rugged, intense six-week program that provided for both pledging and studying so that grades would not suffer. Epsilon Mu also elected officers for the Fall semester recently. They are as follows: Anthony Van, President; Gary banks, Vice-President; Keith Stewart, Treasurer; Anthony McDaniels, Secretary. These new officers, along with officers of the past year, were honored at this year's Awards Banquet. Held at the San Jose Holiday Inn, the Banquet featured an inspiring speech by Brother Clinton Minnis, the Western Region Vice-President. The highlight of the Banquet was the crowning of Brother Herbert Joseph Barry, III, as Epsilon Mu Chapter Brother of the Year. Wasting no time continuing the standard of excellence set by the previous administration, Brother Van and his cabinet immediately set up a fundraiser. A car wash was held on Sunday, May 18. Not only were funds raised, but a good time was had by all. On the whole, it was a very good year. Under the leadership of outgoing Chapter President Ronald Cannon, many unique programs and events were presented to the students of San Jose State — and with good results. Here are just a few things we have planned for the Fall semester: The annual Black Freshman Orientation will again be held within weeks of the beginning of school. The orientation is a way Alpha can try to halt the growing attrition rate of Black students. Also in the planning stages is the setup of the Alpha Phi Alpha Radio Network — with membership open to any and all Brothers involved in Radio/TV. For more information and to get on the mailing list, write me now at this address: Bertram D. Ashe, c / o Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., P. O. Box 486, San Jose, CA 9 5 1 0 3 . Well, we hope this provides some insight as to what the Western Region Chapter of the Year, Epsilon Mu, is 67


doing to help the cause of Black students at San Jose State and of the Black community as a whole. The golden Light of Alpha gives off a blindingly bright glow here at S.J.S.U. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; home of Epsilon Mu.

California History was possibly made in Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity with the initiation of a father and son on the same line. Saturday afternoon, Feb. 22, 1 980, at the home of Brother and Mrs. Henry Thomas, the first one of the "Grand Seven" began the journey across the burning sands of Alpha. This Line of Beta Psi Lambda was among the best that the Rushing Committee of the Chapter has been privileged to work with. In order of crossing, they were Brothers: John W. Graham, Robert Wilson, Paul Tucker, Lloyd Chandler, Johnell Chaskley, Michael Graham, and Willie O. Jones. Brother John W. Graham is the father of Brother Michael Graham. The crossing was completed at 1:58 p.m. Following the completion of the ceremonies, and the awarding of the Neophyte Brothers with the Chapter Directory, a Chapter Constitution, along with Pledge Days memories, Brothers John Graham and Michael Graham treated the Brothers to a champagne splash. The fellowship was long and an afternoon to remember. The Rushing Committee is composed of Brother Oscar V. Little, Dean of Pledges; Brother Samuel W. Davis, Chapter Secretary; and Brother James Downing, Jr., Chapter Vice President.

Beta Psi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., recently received Brothers Ronald Burwell and William Nesbit, Jr. as members of the organization. Brother Burwell is a graduate of John C. Smith University and Brother Nesbit is a graduate of California State University, Dominguez Hills. The newly initiated Brothers presented "An Evening of Black Music and Poetry" featuring Chasbon Theatre Workshop's "Voices in Concert" and the Los Angeles Heritage Singers. The Chasbon Theatre is directed by Cudjo Ebon and Brother Johnell Chaskley and the Los Angeles Heritage Singers are directed by Mrs. Barbara Sherill. The program was held at the Inglewood Public Library auditorium in Inglewood, California recently to benefit the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.'s

Our president, Brother Powell, and our regional director, Brother Earvwim McCullar, deserve credit. We started the new year seeking true direction. Our president, Brother Powell R. Brannon, was in attendance at the Leadership Conference in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and brought back valuable information which will be of much help to the chapter and its ever improving programs. We believe that planning will be the key to our success. Our Tutorial Program is now in full swing at the West Fresno Boy's Club. Our Neophyte Brother Albert Cowings is in charge and he is doing an outstanding job. Our Sweetheart Program is in full swing, Brother E. Sam Sears is in charge of that program. The young ladies who are participating are Gay Seraille, Villeta Simpson, Vanece Curry, and Michelle Hampton. Along with our activities we co-sponsored a back-to-school dance with The Sphinx / Summer 1980


those lovely ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha. Our Rush Week consisted of a smoker at the Water Tree Inn and a Rush Party at the Scott's Man. In attendance were Sphinxmen from Cal State University San Luis Obispo. We have high hopes for those Sphinxmen, that we inducted in January. The interest is high on the campus that they attend. Our campus plege line began on Feb. 18, 1980 with quite a few potentials.

eastern Washington u lota Tau Chapter is alive and kickin' (according to their Advisor, Brother Dr. Charles B. Minor). This Chapter, and not Nu Epsilon Lambda, introduced Alpha to Western Washington as it was reported in the last newsletter. Founded in 1975, at Eastern Washington

Slowing down is more than just a safer way to drive. It's also a great way to save gas and money. You'll get about 20 more miles from every tank of gas if you drive 55 mph instead of 70 mph on the highway. That's like getting a 60 discount on every gallon of gas! And it's just one of the easy ways you can save gasoline. • Keep your car well-tuned and you'll save about 40 on every gallon of gas. • Keep your tires properly inflated and you'll save 20 on every gallon. • You can save as much as 30 a gallon by using radial tires. Saving gas is just that simple —and with the rising energy costs we're facing today, it's never been more important. The Sphinx / Summer 1980

University in Cheney, Washington, lota Tau later spread its membership to the campus of Washington State University in Pullman, WA to form a stronger chapter. Recently lota Tau initiated seven Sphinxmen into Alpha Phi Alpha. All of these seven men are on the campus at Washington State University in Pullman. Our new Brothers are: Oscar E. Desper III, Cederic DeVaughn, Michael Finley, Leonard W. McKinnon, Joe T. Smith, Lance Smith and Michael Wallace. Credit for preparing these Brothers to "cross the burning sands" goes to Brother Bob Lindsay, Brother Jimmie Washington, Brother Byron Gilkes, Brother Norward Brooks, Jr., and Brother Charles B. Minor, Advisor.

Think about it. If you use all these simple gas-saving techniques, it's like getting a 150 discount on every gallon of gas! For a free booklet with more ideas on how to save energy and money, write "Energy," Box 62, Oak Ridge, TN 37830. Name Address City State Zip.
