^ I N editors review Greetings . . . NOT ALL The News That's Fit To Print: Unlike the fabled newspaper with the healthy balance sheet, our year-end figures dictated an abbreviated version of this journal. Thus, as I am positive some of you will note, a number of articles have been deferred for publication in our next issue — including some Alphas On The Move and Chapter News inserts. If you have submitted an article, look for it in the next issue — real soon! . . . We are extremely proud to bring to you the story of the two Alpha Men who scored big in the fall elections. While I'm sure you know the story of Brother Andrew Young's victory in the Atlanta mayoral race, you should also meet Brother Edward Mclntyre — Mayor of Augusta, GA (as James Brown would say). We extend our best wishes to both of these outstanding leaders. Ditto their staffers, Tom Offenberger of Mayor Young's office; and Augusta's Connie Vance of Ad Vance Public Relations and Brother Willie G. Marshall of Alpha Chi Lambda Chapter . . . In There Goes An Alpha Man you'll meet, among others, Brother Derrick Warren, SGA President at Southern University. He's the third student body leader we've featured in as many issues, following Jeff Carson of Memphis STate and Mark Lee of Eastern Michigan University. There's more to come, featuring Alpha leaders from Jackson State, Florida A & M and Alabama A & M. That's why Alpha Phi Alpha is "Still First After All These Years!" . . . Another traditional area of Alpha prominence is the field of higher education. In our FOCUS feature, you'll be introduced to Brother Edward Fort. A self-described "educational evangelist," Brother Fort succeeds Brother Lewis Dowdy as Chancellor of North Carolina A & T State University. This fine article was penned by Brother Richard Moore of Kappa Lambda Chapter, who is (coincidentally, of course) Director of Information Services at A & T. This article, too, continues a trend — as our last issue profiled Benedict College President Henry Ponder (Alumni Brother of the Year) and Tuskegee's new President (and Benedict's former head) Brother Benjamin Payton. On a sad note, we must also record the passing of Brother James Colston, former President of Knoxville College and the first Black college president in New York State. More on Brother Colston's fine career in our next issue . . . In At The Top, Associate Editor Julius Hall highlights the 1981 Chapters of the Year: lota Upsilon Lambda of Silver Spring, Maryland; and Theta lota of Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Blacksburg, Virginia. Both chapters set a high standard for us all . . . A CLARION CALL: Please hold on to this issue long enough to read our Strategies for the '80's feature on The Black Church. AME Bishop John Hurst Adams provides a thoughtful and moving analysis. Add to that his sterling delivery, and you'll understand why all present at the Diamond Jubilee Ecumenical Service are still talking about his dynamic address . . . Education Foundation Chairman Walter Sullivan sets forth the philosophical basis for the Fraternity's renewed vigor in the community service field. His article is on Page 7 . . . Alpha Athletes looks at the Brothers we spied during the course of the football season. Our football roundup contains some old pros — and some new faces . . . We are proud to welcome (to our Commentary Section) Brother Mai Goode. This nation's first Black network television correspondent, Mai brings valuable insights to our readers . . . Finally, a personal note of thanks to Brother Oliver Greene, Jr. (of Alpha Alpha Chapter) for providing appropriate information on the shameful fiasco held at the University of Cincinnati (see Commentary, Page 27). We'll have more information on this subject in our next magazine . . . WHERE'S MY SPHINX? Please feel free to submit address corrections to the General Office to ensure delivery of your mail. Please include your 1982 Passcard Number (or Life Member Number) when submitting such information . . . Until next issue . . . MP.

Enough is Enough! Within a few short years this nation has moved from a posture of a "War on Poverty" to one of a "War on the Poor." Social programs that feed and provide medical assistance for the poor, which is disproportionately Black, are being cut deeply and civil rights agencies designed to assure equal opportunity are being crippled and dismantled. It appears that we are moving far beyond simple budgetary concerns toward a complete change in the nation's commitment to equal opportunity and equity. We are moving toward a nation that promotes democratic socialism for the rich and rugged individualism for the poor. The change in directions is so blatant that it threatens to halt the forward progress of Black Americans. Further it portends to turn back the clock to conditions existing in the early sixties. The indices of actions that have an adverse effect on Black and poor Americans are these: 1. The firing^of Arthur Flemming as head of the U. S. Civil Rights Commission. 2. The Justice Department's endorsement of a Washington State anti-busing law. 3. Administration officials' opposition to hiring quotas in job bias cases. 4. Administration's endorsement of a watered down version of the Voting Rights Act. 5. Non-application of affirmative a c t i o n r e q u i r e m e n t s to m o s t businesses. 6. Creation of a climate of noncompliance by indication of nonenforcement of present civil rights statutes. The present posture of government represents a reversal of position going back decades. Black Americans have viewed federal government as the primary guarantor of their rights since 1861. Although the federal government has not always been forceful in protec2

ting the rights of Black Americans, it has been far more sensitive and responsive than the individual states. Racism is so blatant and so pervasive in America that only a force of the magnitude of the national government can have any real impact for the better. So the reliance of Blacks on it is understandable and realistic. Black have climbed steadily toward equality, assisted by the federal government, since World War II. The social programs of the New Deal made them beneficiary to economic and political empowerment to an extent. President Truman ordered desegregation of the Armed Forces. The Supreme Court declared segregation unconstitutional in public education. Later there was passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Economic Opportunity Act. The U. S. Commission on Civil Rights was formed in 1957. Establishment of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance and the Community Relations Service constituted other positive steps in the

federal government's commitment to equal opportunity, equity and justice. Black Americans have been stunned by the swiftness and completeness with which the civil rights agencies are being dismantled and raped of their power to fight discrimination and assure equal opportunity. Black Americans have seen days and times like this before. We must not panic nor must we accept resignedly any notion that we cannot affect the situation. We can and we must turn the tide as we have turned it before. We will meet and match the resolve of sinister forces to turn back the clock with an even greater resolve to continue our progress. When Black youths were denied basic educational opportunities, the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity came storming to leadership with its "Go To High School — Go To College" program while at the same time fighting for better educational facilities. When Black America was being disenfranchised and barred from political participation, Alpha came storming to leadership with its "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People," making Blacks conscious of the power of the ballot and at the same time knocking down legal barriers to voting. When Blacks were suffering the pains and dehumanization of segregation in public facilities and public accommodations, an Alpha man (Bro. Martin Luther King, Jr.), supported by Alpha and other Americans, came storming to leadership of the mass demonstrations, sit-ins, wade-ins, pray-ins, and marches, breaking the back of Jim Crow in the South. Enough is Enough The time has come for Alpha to come storming to the forefront of leadership again. It must re-establish a Continued on Page 42 The Sphinx/Winter 1981

THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARY'S DESK "Spring Cleaning" for efficient Chapter Operation NOW IS THE TIME to clear up all of your past initiations that have not been completed as of this year. "5-years from now is too late." We have several folders indicating chapters have not followed the proper procedures for getting initiations approved or sending the proper amount of fees. It would be to your advantage to have the brothers we are holding counted in your chapter count in determining your regional strength. You may contact our Clerical Supervisor, Betty L. Cash, or Terry F. Ruffin, who will be more than pleased to assist you in clearing up these delinquent matters. CHAPTER ADDRESSES: Although we have on numerous occasions informed the Brotherhood of the importance of having a Chapter Address on file in the General Office, we still find that several chapters have not yet submitted a Chapter Directory indicating to whom chapter correspondence is to be mailed. This not only causes a problem for us but deprives the chapter of important chapter communications mailed from our office. Please check your records now to see if your chapter has submitted a Chapter Directory and whether or not your chapter has received the several chapter mailings for 1981-82 — which included a Chapter Guide (containing the Chapter Guide Manual, pertinent information on the National Program, and, among other things, a supply of the forms needed to submit funds to the national office). No Chapter Guides will be mailed to any chapter without a Chapter Directory being on file. If you need a Chapter Directory, please contact the national office and request one, immediately. If you have depleted your supply of forms needed to conduct business with the national office, you may request additional forms by identifying the type of form needed. Any form that you have received that is black and white can be duplicated by the chapter to fill its need [i.e., applications, directories, etc.] — but DO NOT DUPLICATE the Remittance of Funds form. The color separation is important and must be intact (all white sheets will not help). The same holds true for Pin Orders. The Pin Orders The Sphinx/Winter 1981

must have multi-colors intact [all 5] because different colors go different ways and your failure to comply could cause our order to be delayed and unhappiness among the new brothers. REGIONAL MEMBERSHIP COUNT: In determining chapter strength for the Regional Convention, all Grand Taxes and Chapter Taxes must be paid before MARCH 1, 1982. That date, according to the Constitution and By-Laws, is the cut-off date for determining eligibility of chapters. If you have not paid your Chapter Tax — you may please refer to the Chapter Tax (Fee Schedule) and submit that amount plus $21.00 Late Fee prior to March 1st. All chapters who have not paid Chapter Tax by March 1st will not be able to participate in any of the Regional Convention activities. And, any chapter which has failed to pay by JUNE 30TH will not be allowed to participate in the General Convention. So, it is to your advantage to make sure your Chapter Tax has been paid. LIFE MEMBERS: Of course, there is no Service Fee on Life Members this year. Therefore, all chapters must submit to the General Office a listing of their Life Members in order for them to be placed on the Mailing List. To assist the chapters in doing this, and at the same time make the process as easy as

possible, all chapters will receive a form from the General Office asking for pertinent information on its Life Members. Please fill out these forms and send them back as soon as possible so that we may be able to update our file and place the Life Members on the Computer Mailing List to receive all their magazines and correspondence without delay. If the chapter fails to send in a Life Member's address, that Life Member will not receive any correspondence or magazines because we will not have a proper address for him. It is each LIFE MEMBER'S responsibility to see to it that their Chapter Secretary has their Social Security Number and the other pertinent information necessary for the Computer. NEWSLETTER: Please consult the February Alpha Newsletter for 1982 Regional Convention dates and locations, an updated listing of fees due, and a listing of all chapters participating in the Million Dollar Fund Drive [with their goals, the paid amount, and the balance due to complete their pledge]. MINUTES: The Minutes of the 1981 [Diamond Jubilee] General Convention have been mailed to all chapters with a chapter address on file in our office. Those chapter contact persons who receive the Minutes should make that copy available to the members of the chapter and not keep it as a personal copy. Individual copies may be purchased by submitting the cost of $3.00 each to National. CHAPTER GUIDE: The 1982-83 Chapter Guide is in the process of being put together — and will be distributed at the Regional Convention to the chapters. If you have any suggestions as to how this chapter guide can be improved or additional items it should contain, please advise us here in the General Office. We shall appreciate any suggestions. CONSTITUTION: You may also look forward in the coming year to the [1982] revision of our national Constitution and By-Laws — which also should be available by regional time.

Leading the way: Warren at Southern U Brother DERRICK VANCE WARREN is another of the members of Alpha Phi Alpha among the college ranks w h o has chosen to answer the Fraternity's continual call for leadership. As his chapter strove for recognition within the Fraternity, being named Southwestern Chapter of the Year; and as his fellow c h a p t e r m e m b e r Cedric Holloman undertook the quest that led him to selection as Alpha's College Brother of the Year . . . Brother Warren was on a different, but related, quest. He, too, was successful and currently he serves as President of the Student G o v e r n m e n t Association at Southern University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Brother Warren, a native of Bastrop, Louisiana, is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science.

Derrick is involved in many other campus and community activities, but none hinder him from being an integral member of the Fraternity's largest college chapter. His love for Alpha is exhibited by his participation in the projects and programs of Beta Sigma Chapter. A moment especially rewarding to him was his attendance at the 35th A n n i v e r s a r y Southwestern Regional Convention in Little Rock, Arkansas (1981). Here he joined the other members of Beta Sigma's notorious "Stomp Patrol" to gain 1st Place in the regional's step competition. Hats off to Brother Derrick V. Warren . . . An Alpha M a n !

EDUCATION FOUNDATION From Whence Have I Come — To Whom Do I Owe A Debt?

I . JlMk fill. _ ._ I f. ANNUAL. -* (jO TO-MICH CCWOOl_ I GO-TO-COCLEGt V CAMkiGN COVM of Tli, 5|ilir«J April 1030

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., has had, since its inception, a strong commitment to excellence in education and scholarship The Fraternity has supported and sponsored many efforts to sustain this commitment via financial, moral, and motivational activities. The founding of the Alpha Phi Alpha Education Foundation, Inc. (hereafter referred to as the Foundation), was preceded by a highly successful and memorable program entitled "Go To High School — Go To College." This viable program was warmly supported by individual Brothers and Chapters and, in turn, was responsible for motivating many young men and women to further their education. The philosophy of this program continues to find expression through current programs of the Foundation

The above questions are ones which haunt or should haunt Blacks who have achieved a measure of financial, educational, and/or career success. Have we made strides towards success on our own or has some other person(s) been of paramount importance in our efforts? No person is an island unto himself and is totally selfsufficient; however, too often we forget those who gave us a boost, encouragement, and guidance during our formative and developmental years. We also fail to remember that many persons died, were jailed or were scorned as they religiously fought for our right to enjoy the good life of being educated, able to pursue careers of choice, and able to accumulate those spiritual and material factors which we wish to experience. If others made great sacrifices so that we might enjoy life, should we not repay these debts by assisting others? What do we owe? We only need to look around us and observe how many of our brothers and sisters barely exist without the abundance of blessings which we enjoy and take for granted. Our lives should be empty and hollow if we refuse or fail to lend a helping hand to others. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity was founded to provide opportunities for men to band together and assist each other to grow and develop. Our beloved Jewels and others foresaw the great need for service to and love for all mankind via the powerful thrusts of our Fraternity. It is imperative, therefore, that we enhance and expand our service efforts via the "New Alpha Thrust."

Chapters across the nation are in the process of implementing the "New Alpha Thrust." I urge all Brothers to support their Chapters in the conduct of our national program. Your time, energies, and, most of all, your expertise are urgently needed for the successful implementation of the program. You may be instrumental in preventing the waste of a mind. The Alpha Phi Alpha Education Foundation will soon issue suggestions for model activities in the areas of Leadership Development, Career Guidance and Tutorial Assistance, Job Fairs, and Youth Motivation and Recognition. It is our desire that you will agree to make a contribution in one or more of these areas. We are responsible for the future directions which our young Black ladies and gentlemen will pursue. We can't afford to leave it to the public schools alone, for so many are being shunted aside or misinformed. We can't depend on parents alone, for far too many are not at an educational level whereby they can adequately help their children succeed. Let us resolve that we will not let the "street" swallow our youth into lives of crime and waste. Let us prepare them to be leaders of a bright tomorrow. From Whence Have I Come Whom Do I Owe A Debt?

Brother Young has been involved in public policy issues and social change all of his adult life, as a


clergyman, civil rights leader, Congressman, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, private citizen, and now Mayor. In the 1960s, he was a close associate of Brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., participating in the major civil rights movements of the time.

Culminating a long career of public service, Brother Mclntyre became the city's first Black mayor in the building he once called "a dream." The "People's Celebration"

At the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) he directed the Citizenship Education Program, which provided community organizing and leadership training to thousands of people who went on to lead the change which swept the South. Mayor Young has also been a pastor in Alabama and Georgia, the Associate Director of Youth Work for the National Council of Churches, an executive of SCLC, and Chairman of the Atlanta Community Relations Commission. In 1972 he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from the Fifth Congressional District of Georgia, becoming the first black Congressman from Georgia in 101 years.

In 1976 he was chairman of the Democratic National Committee's national voter registration campaign. Soon after Jimmy Carter was elected President in 1976, he announced the appointment of Andrew Young as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Ambassador Young served in that position from January 30, 1977, to September 23, 1979. During that period he was also a member of the Cabinet and the National Security Council. In addition to being the chief U.S. delegate to the UN, he represented the United States at international conferences and on diplomatic missions throughout the world. After his service as Ambassador, Mr. Young became President of Young Ideas, Inc., a non-profit organization which addreses public policy questions and assists individuals and groups involved in a range of domestic and foreign policy questions. In 1980 and 1981 he wrote a weekly column on current events for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. The column appeared in more than 40 newspapers.

The Beta Chapter initiate is married to the former Jean Childs, and they have three daughters: Andrea, Lisa and Paula; and a son, Andrew, III. Brother Young's father, the late Dr. Andrew Young, Sr., was a long-time member of Sigma Lambda Chapter in New Orleans — and one of the network of outstanding men who helped mold the Fraternity during its formative years. On October 27, 1981, Brother Young was elected Mayor of the City of Atlanta. As Mayor, he is chief executive officer of a government with 8,000 employees and an annual budget of approximately $170 million. And, as his theme clearly indicates, he plans to utilize his experiences throughout the world to continue his city's path to progress. To borrow a phrase from the city's outgoing Mayor, Brother Maynard Jackson, L.A. (Lovely Atlanta) should become even lovelier . . . with Brother Andrew Young at the helm. 13

At Xerox, only exceptional people will help us meet exceptional challenges. In the 1980's the competitive challenges have never been greater. Xerox believes that PEOPLE will make the decisive difference in helping us maintain our competitive edge.

Xerox has the technology, the resources and most importantly, the people. Engineers created an industry; sales people sold it; business management people keep it growing. For example, the following people have helped Xerox achieve its success: Dolphus Preston, Manager of HV Products Electrical Integration in the Reprographics Technology Group; Yvonne Montgomery, Sales Manager in the Washington Region; and Tom McEachin, Manager of Operations Analysis for the Office Products Division.

(Continued from Page 11) (as the new mayor dubbed his inauguration) was held in the AugustaRichmond County Civic Center and, for the first time, opened to the public. As a member of the Richmond County Commission, Brother Mclntyre had co-founded the Coliseum Authority which spearheaded the construction of this same 10,000-seat facility. It was, thus, a fitting forum for the dignitaries from across the country and several thousand Augustans who braved the hard rains to attend the ceremony. Also in that crowd was Brother A. Reginald Eaves, the Fulton County Commissioner, who had joined hands with Brother Andrew Young in the Atlanta mayoral race following his third-place finish in the initial voting. Brothers Eaves and Mclntyre were classmates — and Brothers — at Morehouse College. Brother Mclntyre began his campaign last summer with a solid background in public service and a vigorous optimism. "Being a native son, I never lost my faith . . . I knew that, in 1981, the majority of people — black and white — would select the best candidate," he was quoted on elecThe Sphinx /Winter 1981

tion night. His expectation was fulfilled, as he only missed avoiding a run-off by some 500 votes and went on to garner nearly 54% of the total in the second round of balloting. That run-off saw the largest voter turnout in the city's history, with 70% of the voters casting ballots, with only this race at stake. At the time of his election, Brother Mclntyre was a promotions consultant — heading his own firm, Point Augusta, Inc. He had previously served two terms on the Richmond County Commission, from 1970 through 1978, and was that board's Chairman during 1975-76. He has been active with a large number of civic and political organizations on the local and state levels, including serving as founder and first President of the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials. Additionally, the new mayor is widely known as a staunch supporter of Augusta's three institutions of higher learning — Paine College, Augusta College and Medical College of Georgia. With his wife at his side and his mother, the Reverend Mrs. Essie Mclntyre, holding the mother-of-pearl covered Bible, Brother Mclntyre was

administered the oath of office by Superior Court Judge Franklin Pierce. This signaled, in the words of his inaugural address, "a beginning for me and a new beginning for Augusta." As during the campaign, he continued to exhude assurance by boldly predicting that Augusta's future would find it "a city so great that there will only be two kinds of people left in America — those who live in Augusta and those who wish they lived in Augusta." Brother Mclntyre, 50, attended Paine College and Fort Valley State College going on to secure his baccalaureate degree at Morehouse. He did graduate study at both Atlanta University and Columbia University. Married to the former Juanita Beard, he is the father of three children: Wanda, 22; Edward, Jr.,15; and Ashley,10. Some things will remain the same in Augusta. Spring will still summon the world's best professional golfers to the prestigious Masters Tournament. And Georgia's second-oldest city (at age 193) will remain steeped in Southern tradition. But, make no doubt about it, the election of Edward Marlow Mclntyre, Sr., does indeed signal a new — and proud-beginning for all its citizens. 15

By virtually any standard, the awards amassed by the recipients of the 1981 Chapter of the Year awards — Theta Iota and Iota Upsilon Lambda — would be considered outstanding. When, however, one considers that IUL is only eleven years old, while Theta Iota chapter was established a mere nine years ago — the accomplishments of these two chapters are none short of remarkable. The notion of a "humble beginning" seems to have been totally rejected by these two stalwart chapters of Alpha.

By JULIUS HALL t was more than just a routine press release. "MONTGOMERY'S ALPHAS: Black Fraternity Fights for Rights'' hailed the esteemed Washington Post in a November 1981 article. The front-page story highlighting the workings of this suburban Washington Chapter should not have been a surprise, however. The commitment of this chapter to the ideals of Alpha are resolute. The goal of Iota Upsilon Lambda at its inception eleven years ago was to "establish a viable Alpha Chapter of Black professionals bound in fraternal brotherhood and dedicated to addressing, and articulating the needs and concerns of Blacks suffering in the midst of White affluence." From that early desire the chapter has evolved into such a force in Montgomery County that it cannot be .termed merely viable, but moreso, perhaps, vital. A partial listing of the chapter's awards received tells that tale. Iota Upsilon Lambda has been named the Fraternity's "Most Outstanding Alumni Chapter of the Year" in seven of its eleven years of existence (1974-78 and 1980-81). The chapter has also received several general Fraternity awards for service to the Life Membership Program. IUL's awards, however, have not stopped with its recognition in Alpha. Omega Psi Phi (Montgomery County) bestowed its "Distinguished Service A w a r d " for 1979 to IUL. The chapter received the 1980 " O u t s t a n d i n g Organization A w a r d " from its local branch of the N A A C P . It has likewise received recognition from the national N A A C P for assistance in a membership campaign and for becoming the first Greek-letter group in the nation to

O n e may ask how the chapter of 120 members became "the most influential and effective advocate for black interests in the county" (Washington Post) and a preeminent chapter in Alpha. The answer seems evident: though IUL has amassed an array of awards and recognitions, its deeds far outnumber the prizes received. The chapter has taken an active role in the policy matters that affect Montgomery C o u n t y . In its ranks are leaders of many of the county's major black organizations and concerns. IUL has also taken on the task of

recognizing the oftimes unsung leaders in the struggle for equality. A m o n g those recognized have been former Alpha Presidents and workers; also politicians, locally and nationally. The chapter has given thousands of dollars annually to charity. Since 1973 it is reported to have given over $44,000 in scholarships. IUL was also a leader in the fraternity's Million Dollar Drive, giving nearly $14,000. By virtually any measure, Iota Upsilon Lambda has attained its 1970 goal, and more. It is certainly worthy of Alpha's recognition as "Most Outstanding Alumni Chapter of the Year" . . . and perhaps the decade. The S p h i n x / W i n t e r 1981

AT THE TOP n the 1972-73 school year, there approximately 150 Black attending Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg, Virginia. As in 1906, a group of dedicated and determined young men (who became known as the "Fine Nine") sought to bring about a change in the Black culture and way of life at Tech. On January 29, 1973, this once all-white institution was introduced to "the World of Alpha," with the official chartering of the Theta Iota Chapter. Not only was Alpha Phi Alpha the first Black Greek-letter organization, but the chapter was the first Black organization of any kind on VPI's campus. Now, because of the examples set by the early initiates of Theta Iota, many other Black organizations have been able to follow. Since the founding of this chapter, Theta Iota has remained in the upperechelon of all university activity, and for three consecutive years — beginning with the year of its founding — was named the State Chapter of the Year (1973-1975), by the Virginia Association of Chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity (VACAPAF). In 1973, the chapter was named Eastern Regional Chapter of the Year; and in 1977, Theta Iota won honors as State and Regional Chapter of the Year. Theta Iota Brothers have always been involved in community activities, as well as those of the university. Some of their activities include: community cleanup day; Upward Bound tutorial program; blood-pressure and sicklecell clinics; collections of canned goods and clothing for needy families; RentA-Frat jobs; the Black Greek Affair; etc. Turning to the social activities, Theta Iota's "Block Shows" are generally acknowledged by capacity crowds and praised by all. Even as they strive to uphold the high academic standards of their institution and of the Fraternity, the Brothers still find time to "carry" the parties. As the saying goes, "The party won't go unless the Alphas show!" The 1980-81 academic year was an especially proud year for the chapter. With the activities listed above, plus a few others, Theta Iota Brothers also earned numerous individual honors: 1981 graduates James Blacken, Mandel Budley, and Ray Vicks were selected to Who's Who Among Students at American Colleges and Universities;

"With that kind of background and support," said Fort, "by the time I reached high school, I knew that I would go into some phase of education." Even dire surroundings could not erase the aspirations which the Fort children developed. "I grew up in a ghetto on the Westside of Detroit, across the street from a poolroom," he recalled. "But our home was a place full of love and it nurtured us along. We walked 12 blocks to school." Brother Fort was an honor graduate of Detroit's Northwestern High School, which graduated a number of highly successful blacks. They include Nathan Conyers, owner of a Ford distributorship and Hubert Locke, a vice provost at the University of Washington. After high school, Fort enrolled as a history major at Wayne State University in his hometown. Again he finished with honors, then began study for a master's degree in educational administration at the same institution.

nationally prominent educational consultant, Brother Fort has also been a school principal, a supervising teacher, an administrative educational supervisor for the U.S. Office of Education and a visiting professor at the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. Since he became Chancellor of A&T on September 1, students, faculty and administrators have been quickly introduced to his managerial style. "You have got to build a structure that holds people accountable for their sphere of the structure," says Fort. "It's got to be a management system that has clearly defined goals, and a manager has to be surrounded with persons who are loyal and dedicated." Fort said his immediate goal at A&T will be to make that institution "the best historically-black college in the nation."

It is a happy privilege to be here, especially to speak to so outstanding and distinguished a group. And the occasion to be in the brotherhood of Alpha and the Republic of Texas at the same time is a double joy. Thank you for the invitation. II We gather in Dallas for this 75th Diamond Jubilee Alpha Convention from all over the world, and from a wide range of economic, social, educational, religious and political circumstances. Nonetheless, for all of us the definitive and determinative factor in life is that we are black. This is not the result of any special sense of peoplehood we possess, but the consequence of external and exterior forces of racism and oppression which imposed an arbitrary community identified in our frequent use of the words, "black community," referring to black peoples from Bangor, Maine to San Diego, California, and from Miami, Florida to Seattle, Washington. This sets in sharp focus the view of W.E.B. Dubois about the two-ness The Sphinx/Winter 1981

"The Black church represents the first sustained protest of, and alternative to, racism in America . . . The Savior became the Liberator."

when he poses the question, "How to be both black and American at the same time7" I would add a third-ness to the question and ask of us, "How can we be black, American, and Christian at the same time?" It was out of this two-ness and three-ness, that what we know as the black church was born. Blacks who had come to believe the gospel, and became Christians could not live with the contradictions and inconsistencies regarding race they encountered in the white churches. The white churches reproduced in the "saved" community the same horror, indignity and humiliation blacks faced in the larger society; thus black Christians kept the faith but sought freedom and equality in a new faith community. The black church represents the first sustained protest of, and alternative to, racism in America. It is the first institutional affirmation of the full worth and dignity of Americans of African descent. The savior became the liberator. Heaven and the next world became out of slavery and in freedom's land. The spirituals are freedom songs as well as religious witness. The founding fathers and mothers of the black church were creative and exceptional theologians without benefit of theological education. The black church initially addressed the issues of black sanity and survival. Excluded from the white society, it developed its own society. Programmed for self-hate and disunity, it developed its own community of love, cooperation and a self-respect. Prohibited from participation in the social, economic and political life, it built an all inclusive institution which provided for social life, economic necessities, and political participation. The black church became for enslaved, oppressed, and segregated blacks, an alternative society which said yes to them when the white society said no. The black church became political party, social club, strategy and plan-

ning meeting, a place to be somebody, a community inside the community, the rebuilder of hope, home base for freedom movement, leadership development program, promoter of education and economic development, and the advocate of a philosophy of self-help. In "saluting the past," it is obvious that I believe the black church served the past very well. Its 20 million members, its vast holdings in property, its investments in education and missions, its large cash flow bespeak the legacy of its rich service in the past. Its influence and centrality to the black community has waned. The changed conditions in the world and the changed economic, educational and political conditions of blacks; the increasing diversity of circumstance and increasing pluralism of beliefs among blacks; the increased competition for our loyalty; the horrendous impact of our urbanization; the infatuation we have with the integration agenda; the explosions in knowledge, technology, communication, mobility and the increasing definition and determination by global rather than local or national realities have impacted the black church. In spite of it all, the black church is still the biggest, best, and most potential resource available for securing the future. It is independent. It has the people. It has the organization. It has the talent. It has the resources, and it has the history, and it has the "word." Dr. Lawrence Jones, Dean of Howard University Divinity School, writes, "It is a sleeping giant . . . a battery waiting to be hooked up to an engine powerful enough to call all of its energy." Ill The role of the black church in securing the future for black Americans requires, and depends on, the black church's capacity to become contemporary. I use the word "contemporary" as (Continued on Page 22) 21

"So much of what we are doing and saying is answering questions nobody is any longer asking." (Continued from Page 21) opposed to "modern." When we modernize we adjust and accommodate our understanding of ultimate reality and beliefs to the new circumstances. We become contemporary by creative and courageous interpretation and application of ultimate reality and faith to the current conditions. This gift to be contemporary was a genius of the mothers and fathers of the black church. With talent far beyond their training and exposure they interpreted and applied the faith they co-opted from their oppressor to the human condition of their brothers and sisters. A classic illustration of this genius was the early role of the black church in the education of black slaves — former slaves and ex-slaves. In the A.M.E. Church, for example, the churches were schoolrooms. The founding fathers and mothers discerned that education, learning, skill, and knowledge were the passports for black Americans into authentic citizenship. Between 1856 and 1880, this one black church founded and operated over 32 schools and training institutions. The remarkable capacity to identify, define, and develop an appropriate and effective response to the needs, pains and possibilities of black people is precisely what I mean by saying the black church must become contemporary. Today, most of the organizational arrangement and their reason to be; the strategies and why they were devised; the programs and their design are a century old, and "time and change have made these ancient goods uncouth." The role of the black church in securing the future begins with a massive effort to become contemporary and relevant in view of the monumental changes in the world, the society, the church, and in black folks during recent years. So much of what we are doing and saying is answering questions nobody is any longer asking. The mandate to the black church is not to live in the past, nor seek to live in the future, but to serve sacrificially the present age. This means we must reassess our present agenda as a black 22

church, and begin with a zero-based mission agenda. The new insights, discoveries, inventions and understanding about the global nature of our predicaments and the world's problems, the urban impact on black people, color, racism, male sexism, economic elitism, cultural imperialism, and the diversity and pluralism in present day society must be taken into account as we redo our agenda. In becoming contemporary, the black church will have to embrace a functional ecumenism if it cannot become theologically and ecclesiastically ecumenical. The task of "securing the future" is so large, complex, difficult and systemic; while the resources, and competencies of individual black churches are so limited we must come together locally, regionally, and nationally to do together what we cannot do separately. I believe this functional, pragmatic and programmatic ecumenism is not only necessary, but quite possible. The labels we wear, whether doctrinal or denominational, were not born out of our own experience but are the inherited sectarianism of our oppressor whose faith we sought to rescue. The determinative fact of life for blacks is being black. In those churches which are not black, the brothers and sisters have had to create a black caucus or grouping by whatever name it goes. The common ground on which all black church persons stand has higher priority in faith and history than our various brands, labels and classifications. We have: One One One One One One One

common creator — God common root — Africa common race — Black common experience — Oppression common commitment — Christ common pain — Suffering common hope — Liberation and Justice.

IV Drawing wisdom and strength from its central and constructive role in the black community from the beginning of the American adventure, the black church must become contemporary and ecumenical to adequately fulfill its role in securing the future. Relevance and unity will make it possible for the black church to undertake the tasks to which the will of God, the teaching of Scripture, the needs of its people, and the demands of history are calling it.

A. The black church has an enormous educational role to play to secure the future of black people. It is very frightening that we are increasingly leaving the education of our children completely in the hands of our oppressor. Any culture or group which does not accept responsibility for the training of its young and the preparation of its leadership is diluted and soon destroyed. This educational role of the black church suggests at least six components: 1. The black church with its considerable intellectual, financial, publication and production resources must enable the preparation and distribution of oral and written literature which tells our story and teaches the values and goals which our experiences have discovered and evolved. 2. The black church must open its many facilities to the community especially to the young and provide them with tutorial and after-school supplementary education dealing mainly with the issues of functional literacy and community morality.

"The Black church has an enormous educational role to play to secure the future of Black people." (Continued from Page 22) 3. The black church must enlarge and systematize its role as the custodian and carrier of our history and culture. The denominations and the local churches must develop and implement the "ethnic school" where matters of our identity, worth, history, culture and a sense of peoplehood are taught. The Afro-American story and the Hebrew Christian story can and are compatible and complementary. We can teach black pride without teaching white hate. 4. The failure of integration compounded by the current rightist-racistelitist climate and government strongly suggests that the black church should be into the business of "alternative schools" for our children, at least for the kindergarten through sixth grades. Singly this may sound impossible, but ecumenical clusters of churches could easily provide the facilities, resources and personnel. The current promotion of the tuition tax credit portends deeper difficulties for the public schools, but what really matters is that we see to the excellent education of our children. 5. The black church, joined by the whole black community, must secure the future of our black colleges and universities. We must give them our friendship, our advocacy, our children and our money. Alumni of black colleges speak with the roar of a lion and give in the deeds of a rabbit. But we must support them to the point where they are excellent, competitive and unique. 6. The black church, above all else, must move to professional standards and professional education for its clergy as well as its lay leadership. Of course preachers are called, but they also must be trained. In the early church there was Kerygma and Didache — preaching and teaching. The earliest black schools were to train clergy leadership and that preparation and that independent leadership are more urgently needed today. Our Lord Jesus Christ called His disciples, then He trained them. The Sphinx/Winter 1981

VI B. The black church has a new kind of development mission to secure the future of black people. Development must be added to survival as a key role for our churches to play. 1. One of the most brutal hardships of the black community is its shortage of, and lack of, economic capital. The natural grouping of the church community is a place we can do capital formation with many contributing a little regularly since we do not have owners or holders of capital. The Sullivan 10-36 Plan, or similar plans, are worth repeating in all our churches for community development. This is but one of many approaches to the black church in its developmental role to secure the future.

and extended and enlarged. I say of the family what Winston Churchill said of democracy, "it is the worst possible way to live except all others." The black family has been the means by which we got through captivity, slavery, war, oppression, poverty, and it is the means by which we can cope with modern society and secure the future of our coming generation. 4. We would not be true to ourselves if the black church does not address the issues of development as it relates to our brothers and sisters in Africa and the third world. The liberation of black peoples from oppressive tyrannies, whether white or black, is an inexorable part of the liberation we have come to know in Jesus Christ. The black church and black organiza-

"The Black church, above all else, must move to professional standards and professional education for its clergy. . . . Our Lord Jesus Christ called His disciples, then He trained them. 2. There was an era of the individual, singular, national leaders whose charisma and situational power effected change. This served us well in the past but apparently is over. The black church with its people and its tested organization, and its capacity to survive attack and crisis, must develop its own institutional and structural power to serve black people. It must learn to leverage its assets and its cash flow. It must do community organizing around the points of pain. It must do credit unions and investment clubs. It must do political education and voter registration. Development means building economic, political and social structures to improve the quality of life for blacks to go along with the religious structures. 3. The black church must do a development mission to rebuild and undergird the black family; nuclear

tions like Alpha Phi Alpha must work without rest until all oppressed peoples know freedom, and we say this particularly about South Africa. VII C. The black church has a relevant evangelism role to fulfill to secure the future of black people. 1. Black people operate within a triangle whose three sides are religion, education, and family life. These three sacreds of the black experience come together in the black church. The first focus of our evangelism role is ethical. We must resurrect the ethos of the black caring community built around faith, family and education. 2. Halting the abandonment of that community is a focus of this new evangelism. I inquired of several black bankers, who were pressing black (Continued on Page 24) 23

"The Black church in relevant evangelism is one which sees, feels and responds to the pains and possibilities of Black people." (Continued from Page 23) churches to use their banks, as to where their church memberships were. Most belonged to predominately white churches, yet they insisted that "I bank black, while they worship white." Surely our condition affirms that we know more about religion than we do money. 3. The third focus of a new and relevant evangelism must be to translate the faith a^nd values of our parents into the language, symbols, folklore, lifestyle and ethos of our children. The old and the very young are attending the matters of faith, family and learning. But what of that generation from ages 18 to 40? The black church cannot fulfill its role in securing the future if it allows so many of its own to stay out of touch for a generation or perhaps forever. 4. The black church in relevant evangelism is one which sees, feels and responds to the pains and possibilities of black people. It must give people reasons for caring about each other and provide both handles on the problems and begin building solutions to them. The pain of old age and loneliness; of inferior housing; of unemployment, underemployment and misemployment; falling quality of education; crime in the streets and fear thereof; the criminality of the criminal justice system; the anxiety of very high density living; sickness and the exorbitant cost of health care; and the price tag on justice in the courts are areas for caring pastoral ministries which are essential if the black church is to fulfill its role in securing the future. VIII D. The black church has a theological role to execute in enabling blacks to secure the future. Out of our experience with God during our turbulent journey in America, the black church must speak of its knowledge of God and His will and His way to our situation today. This role of revealing what it means to know God and to live like you know Him immediately points to several areas which impact critically on black life. 1. A theology of government is 24

absolutely essential because of several recent developments. The resurgence of theocratic tyrannies in Iran and in Jonestown, Guyana and the radical redefinition of government by the Reagan administration. The role of temporal authority in the purposes of God needs to be addressed out of the unique black religious experience because it knows government as both friend and foe and as friend who becomes foe. The terrors of tyrannies cloaked in divine rights and brutalities of America's new Darwinian survival of the fittest must not go unanswered. 2. A theology of justice is necessary to address America's retreat from affirmative action and to inform our understanding where we have participated in oppression and exploitation of others. Let two great black scholars raise the questions which theology best answers. W.E.B. Dubois

a. Will we ever be free so long as we are financed by others? Can we buy black liberation with white money? b. Should blacks spend their resources on the basis of their own needs and philosophy? c. Is it our ethnic, cultural, and Christian duty to take care of each other? d. Is it right and faithful for those who have made it not to share with those who have not? e. Are we falling victim to the seductive charm of a terrible new slavery to things, an empty materialism? f. Should we have ownership in the institutions and structures which define and determine our lives? g. Ought we cause black consumer dollars to recirculate several times before leaving the com-

COMMON GROUND One Common Creator God One Common Root Africa One Common Race Black One Common Experience Oppression One Common Commitment Christ One Common Pain Suffering One Common Hope . . Liberation and Justice asks, "Ought a handicapped people be asked to race with the world?" A paraplegic against an Olympic athlete is not just. C. Eric Lincoln asks, "Does not justice require a sense of equity, because equity makes the distinctions without which justice is a mockery." And it would be correct to include a question which addresses a more practical concern, and that is "Why are most of the persons convicted by the justice system poor, brown and black?" 3. A theology of stewardship of black resources which seeks theological responses to these questions is needed for our guidance:

munity? h. Can we codify, internalize and revitalize the creative use of resources of our hardship days when we did so much with so little? i- Are we accountable to God and those who helped us get over for all the wealth, influence, position and power we have? IX We have saluted the past. We have set forth how the black church can help secure the future. We have lifted up an agenda for the eighties. The Lord's name be praised I The Sphinx/Winter 1981

President Declares "WAR on Black Americans Mai Goode

The Sphinx/Winter 1981

During the Republican convention in Detroit in August 1980 that party's nominee for the Presidency, Ronald Reagan, told nearly two hundred Black delegates, alternates and newsmen . . . "I intend to be the President of all the people." At the time, even to the skeptical, he sounded believable. In January 1981, Regan took office and despite the cry of Reaganomics, favoritism to the rich, and limited appointment of Blacks to key positions in his government, some Blacks still believed the man would come around to becoming what he promised . . . "the President of all the people." Some Black California supporters said . . . "give him time," and outlined instances of Black appointments during his eightyear term as Governor of that state. But the Reagan scene started to unfold with cutbacks in food stamps, reduction in funds for school lunches, reduced emphasis" on Federal Housing programs and designing of new tax proposals which robbed the poor to benefit the rich . . . moves which seriously affected areas of life so meaningful to Blacks and the poor. And one must remember that one-third of America's poor are Black. Last summer a feeling developed across the nation that the President was actually declaring "war" on Black Americans. Then Friday, January 8, the real blow came with the announcement from the White House . . . "reversing an 11-year government policy, the Reagan administration plans to allow tax-exempt status for private schools that discriminate against Blacks." But one has to listen further to be assured that Ronald Reagan, President of the United States, wants to turn back the clock on Civil Rights for Black Americans. These are the words of the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Department, Richard McNamara . . . "we are attempting to protect the independence of all private, tax-exempt institutions, many of which may follow practices and adhere to prin-

ciples with which we disagree." In clearer words . . . "we disagree with the policies of Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, and Goldsboro Christian schools in North Carolina, but we still feel it is all right to use money from Black as well as White taxpayers to support institutions which close their doors to 11% of this nation's citizenry." Ben Hooks, Executive Director of the NAACP put it best. . . "for the IRS to take a position at this time on an issue as settled as this matter is nothing short of criminal." Then Mr. Hooks declare war, too, citing a number of court decisions on the matter . . . "If the Justice Department or the administration refuses to perform its constitutional duty in this area, the NAACP intends to see, with or without support of the administration, that the constitution and laws of this country are upheld." Those of us who have become disenchanted with Mr. Reagan these first twelve months can take heart, for like Frederick Douglass in his fight against slavery; W.E.B. DuBois at the turn of the century in his declaration against lynching and denial of citizenship rights; like Congressman Adam Powell, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Roy Wilkins and Walter White of the thirties and forties; and like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and Whitney Young of the sixties, there are some Benjamin Hooks, Parren Mitchells, Gus Hawkins, John Conyers and other members of the Black Caucus in Congress, and some Black clergymen . . . Jesse Jackson, Wyatt Walker, Wm. Jones . . . who will meet Mr. Reagan on the Battlefield of Constitutional Law to make certain Mr. Reagan does not reopen the separate restaurants and barber shops in government buildings as did President Wilson, and reinstate balconies of theatres for Blacks and bar the press galleries to Black news people. The real shame of what this administration is trying to do is not only 25

denying Black Americans the same rights as the foreign born, the first and second generation Americans, but these actions are taken at a time when the total national economy is floundering which means Blacks, as has always been the case, are suffering the most because we have traditionally been "the last hired and the first fired." Moreover, he now has a Black man . . . well-to-do, of course, and a cabinet member, mouthing the Reaganomic theory . . . "food stamps should be counted as income because when you use food stamps you don't have to take the money out of your pocket." And if you think that is weird, then try to balance this thinking against a policy in the White House which calls for spending 208 billion dollars this year for guns, .tanks, planes and ships (most of which will be outmoded and have no value if the nuclear button is pressed) when just half of that 208 billion would build enough houses to give comfortable living to the nearly fifteen million

families in America who today live in what is considered substandard housing, much of it marked "unfit for human habitation." And, again, I remind you, nearly one-half of this deprived group are Black Americans or minorities. In conclusion, another part of this "war" scene, no Black can forget the antics of U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Jeanne Kirkpatrick last Fall when she, at the behest of President Reagan, cast sixteen vetoes against a capable, qualified African, Foreign Minister of Tanzania, Salim Salim, who sought the SecretaryGeneralship of the U.N. . . . a direct slap at thirty million Black Americans. Then, too, Blacks took note of Mr. Reagan ordering Vice President Bush to visit South Carolina earlier this year to extol the "virtues" of Senator Strom Thurmond on the program inducting Thurmond into South Carolina's Hall of Fame. Mr. Thurmond, you will recall, has made a career of proving

opposition to any kind of Civil Rights or Citizenship Rights for Blacks in this country. From all of this skulduggery, this bigotry, this alienation of thirty million of the nation's most loyal citizenry, may come a strengthening of Black Americans' resolve to unify as never before, to declare "war" ourselves through the ballot box . . . to register and VOTE and do what Blacks have done in Birmingham, in Atlanta, in Mississippi, in New Orleans, in Richmond, in Houston, in Gary, in Dayton, Ohio, and let the Reaganites understand there is a "law in the land," and those who want to turn back the clock on Civil Rights for Black Americans will NOT succeed. The reactionaries, led by President Reagan, must be made to understand they cannot counteract the constitution of these United States which make it clear . . . "that among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" which applies to ALL AMERICANS.

blatently indifferent to the plight of minorities in this country. Moreover, the present administration can boast that minorities held no balance of power in the election and hence, it owes them absolutely no concessions. Where does this leave Black America in terms of demands? At another level, politics interfaces with public Black colleges in ways which are neither healthy nor productive. In many of these colleges and universities political considerations have taken precedence over educational ones. A politician is able to contact an administrator in these institutions and insist that an applicant be hired who is totally unqualified for a position — which order must be followed if the university is to curry favor from the political powers-thatbe. Thus, standards are eroded, priorities become confused, and the general academic climate of an institution is undermined. It seems that some time ago in the not-too-distant past, accrediting agencies such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the North Central Association, etc., stipulated that institutions should be

free of such undue political influences. Certainly they saw the dangers inherent in these practices. Enforcement of this sensible regulation apparently no longer occurs. Let me be the first to admit that politics is a way of life in this civilized world. As Aristotle observed in the opening passage of his Politics written some 2,000 years ago: "Man is by nature a political animal." We have certainly not proven him to be incorrect over the centuries. Yet, this does not obfuscate the fact that there appears to be a built-in polarity between politics and education in present practice. Politics deals with averages — with concensuses — while education strives (or should strive) for excellence, for perfection for making men better than they are. Politicians deal with people while educators deal with ideas. This is not to say that politicians are incapable of having new approaches, novel ways of doing things or even a predilection for the innovative. Nor is it to say that educators do not deal with people. Essentially, they deal with these entities in different contexts. A politician studies people — what makes them tick, what they must be given to keep them satisfied, what keeps them happiest. The educator, too, deals with people but he views them differently. His approach is not necessarily what they wish, but what they might ultimately become as human beings. He is not as much concerned with placation as he is with progress. He is less concerned with averages and more interested in the advancement of the

Education and Politics Huel D. Perkins There is something happening between Black politics and Black education which does not bode well for either. For example, if access to higher education by minority students is being severely curtailed by the present administration — reduction in student loans, reduction in aid to minority colleges and universities, reduction in an aggressive thrust with regard to affirmative action and busing policies — then our Black politicians must share some of the culpability. During the former administration (Carter) the politicians were forever chiding, riding, denigrating, humiliating, carping, attacking the then incumbents for not being sensitively responsive to minority concerns. The claim was that minorities — and specifically Blacks — had helped to provide the margin of victory in the election and were thereby entitled to preferential treatment in jobs, support of specific programs and more than a lions share of the Federal largesse. Such attacks helped to defeat the Carter administration, along with other considerations. Now, minority America is saddled with an administration which is 26

The Sphinx/Winter 1981

human species. He knows that this life can become better and he is prepared to use his mind toward that end. Succinctly put, the politician is concerned with the next election. The educator is concerned with the next generation. There seems to be something askew about all of this and perhaps, I, as an educator, am bringing a much too rational analysis to the situation. The politician attempts to make things happen — a man of action. The educator, who sits behind his desk in his not-soivory tower, can see many turns and detours which should have been taken — is a man of contemplation (The Robert Frost "road not taken" is always more easily identifiable by the observer than by the traveler). Yet, somehow, there must be a happy meeting ground between the two. Is the

solution that more educators should become politicians or the other way around? A politician takes certain risks. He puts his life and his views on the line for all to see and thus to attack. Many educators are just not given to this sort of target practice. Does the theory of the philosopher-king as advanced by Plato still have any validity? Are there persons who because of their training and their intellect should be in positions of leadership? Does such a theory fly in the face of the democratic ideal? Does the absence of the application of this principle lead us to ask the question: "Where have all our leaders gone?" Politicians and educators should never find themselves in adversary relationships. As a minority people we need all our leaders and institutions

Racist Trash at U of Cincinnati Michael Price While some of us marched in Washington on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's birth, two allwhite fraternities at the University of Cincinnati were preparing their own symbolic gesture. UC's chapters of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Pi Alpha Kappa threw parties on January 17th, the eve of the school's holiday in honor of Dr. King. While details on one affair are sketchy, we do know that the SAE affair was billed as a "Martin Luther King Trash Party." It was an exercise in racism at its purest and not, as a local reporter suggested, a matter of "ethnic humor." The SAE partygoers were urged, by flyers circulated around campus, to come dressed as Blacks and the creative minds in this frat even provided a list of items (some 45 according to one account) designed to evoke the proper spirit of "Blackness." We gather from news accounts that these included bringing: a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken; a radio "bigger than your head"; a cancelled welfare check; or, "your father . . . if you know who he is." The enlightened studentry invited to attend this party obviously got the message. Some painted their faces black; some dressed as pimps; "biggerthan-your head" radios were prominent. Others apparently associated violence with Blackness, bringing fake guns to the party; and, at one of the The Sphinx /Winter 1981

parties, students dressed in jeans, teeshirts and loafers, and carried "wooden pendants" inscribed with the Greek letters of one of the Black fraternities on campus. And we are to believe that this travesty was merely an exercise in recreation! As one party participant put it, "They were having fun being Black. They weren't putting it down." While I believe that there are indeed legitimate areas of debate regarding ethnic humor, these cases fall nowhere near that province. Potential apologists should imagine analoguous situations — promulgated by Blacks (or anyone else for that matter). Would you attend a Holocaust Party held during the Jewish high holidays. Anyone for bagels and lox; tatooed numbers on your skin; a fake oven ready to bake fun-filled revelers? Or how about a Solidarity Day Party? You can be Lech Walesa (in chains, of course); I'll be General Jaruwelski, taking carry-out orders for periogi over the phone. Brother Jones can be Comrade Brezhnev — placing his order (cheese-filled, please) from the Kremlin! Just how far do you think we'd get with a Columbus Day Party honoring our Italian friends, featuring: 12 bodies lying; 11 grieving widows; 10 scar-faced hoods . . . and a Mafia don in a federal pen. If these little get-togethers sound repugnant, that's because they are — even as hypothetically posed here.

working toward the same ends — full and complete citizenship, unrestricted access, unlimited opportunity and most important of all, quality education for minorities in this nation. Yet, each must be allowed to function in the areas in which the expertise has been acquired. For if as Sidney Hillman writes in his Political Primer for All Americans that "politics is the science of who gets what, when and why" is correct, then education goes beyond these objectives and is concerned about the quality of what is received. Thus, if education is expected to fulfill its high and noble purpose, then it should always be permitted to function free of the intrusive, restrictive elements of the political arena.

May I suggest, however, that we not get hung up on the "very idea" of such a party. We all look with bewilderment and bemusement at the characteristics and habits of those different from us. We all develop stereotyped images — because we see, don't understand, and grasp the superficial. We could all develop a theme party mocking some ethnic groups, using what we perceive to be identifiable group traits. What sets Sigma Alpha Epsilon — and those of like minds — apart is not that they could . . . but that they wouldl It's a long way from a frat-house bull-session telling "nigger" jokes, to the execution of a public spectacle like the 'Trash Day." Similarly, many decent Germans calmly debated ways to "get rid of the Jewish problem." Most never imagined that what did happen would happen. Because these students did — because they planned, programmed, publicized and implemented their pageant of prejudice — I must take issue with the local editorial which opined that "this type of party encourages racism." The sad truth is that the actions of these young men — embodying a commitment which carried them from conception to actualization — reflect a racism already in place. More than anything else, dealing with that fact should be the next step for all concerned. As a footnote, let me add that the university's Black student groups have pursued this case through the legitimate university and IFC grievance channels. What a strange course for these Black students, for whom carrying a gun is supposed to be second nature! After all, nobody took "books" to the Black "trash" bash! 27

ALPHA ATHLETES Winning Out West!

SMELLING ROSES: The first of our West Coast "Alpha Athletes" to arrive in the winners circle was Alpha Xi's Mark Stewart. Many of you probably remember this University of Washington outside linebacker as the Brother sporting the A-Phi-


1 STEWART On top in the Rose Bowl

A tee-shirt in a recent article in Jet magazine. He caught the eye of the national media when an astute cameraman spied a towel Mark always wears, in practice and play, which says: "Hi, Mom, I Love You." This personal momento — which is tucked away from view during games because of NCAA rules — is Brother Stewart's personal statement to the memory of his mother, M r s . Yvonne Lightning. His mother was strongly supportive of his efforts on the field, from the time he started playing at age 10, and a month and a half before she died (in December 1979), she made one last trip to see her son play. Her inspiration also motivates him off the field, as her long illness (and that

of his step-father) led to his interest in physical therapy as a career choice. Brother Stewart was the San Jose city 100-yard dash champion as a junior and senior at Camden High School, once running 9.6. After contacting the UW Sports Information Office for a photo of this outstanding player, we were treated with a flood of articles from West Coast papers — most tagging Brother Stewart as " p r o b a b l y as good a linebacker," as the school has ever seen. That particular quote came from the team's defensive ^^» coordinator, Jim Lambright, who was himself a standout Husky linebacker.

The team's 2nd round draft choice last year, Eric is a Zeta Alpha initiate from the University of Missouri. An AP and UPI first team All-American during his junior year at Mizzou, Wright played cornerback on the Senior Bowl North squad which was led by the 49'ers coaching staff. His three interceptions against San Diego State in 1970 (including a return on one for 77 yards and a one score) still stand as a Tiger record.

CHAMPS ALSO: Joining Brother Wright on the playing field during the Super Bowl were Cincinnati Bengal standouts Ken Riley and Reggie Williams, both coming off good years with the AFC champions. Brother Riley, a Beta Nu Initiate from Florida A & M, is one of the league's top cornerbacks. He serves as the team's defensive captain and, with thirteen years behind him, he's the senior member of the squad. With All-AFC and All-Pro honors to his credit, and the record as the team's all-time interception leader, Ken is a key player on the Bengal squad. With him on the Cincinnati defensive squad is Brother Williams, 26, who has been a starter all six of his years with the club.The, former All-Ivy League standout is a product of Theta Zeta Chapter at Dartmouth. Reggie holds the

COLEMAN team record for unassisted tackles and he's one linebacker you'll hear more from. He also uses his debonair "Alpha style" to serve as the Bengal's spokesman for the United Way's television promotional campaign.

...even L Wes m &* goes West, s] Traded by the New Orleans Saints, Wes Chandler's new home is with the Chargers of San Diego.

Brothers Art Shell and Gene Upshaw of the Oakland Raiders (World Champions of a year ago) were profiled in our last issue. Six-time All-AFC lineman Shell is still banging it out in the trenches and is still described as "one of the NFL's great offensive linemen." The Maryland State alumnus is a proven leader on and off the field . . . His teammate,

a piece of the action. Despite some "big-money" deals, Upshaw notes that the average NFL player makes just under $79,000 a year — compared with $190,000 for basketball players; $143,000 for baseball players; and $108,000 for hockey jocks. He also points out that only about 1 % of the NFL players have guaranteed contracts, despite their short (4 or 5 year) careers. Whatever happens, the leadership of Brother Upshaw will have a powerful impact on professionals in the future . . . Like his fellow Beta Nu alumnus, Greg Coleman was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals (in 1976). Now, as you probably know, Brother Greg is with the Minnesota Vikings — carrying on as the only Black punter in the entire NFL . . . And, lest we forget, Wes is out West.

This year, the National Football League must begin negotiating a new labor agreement with the NFL Players Association. Brother Upshaw is head of the players union and he has made it "perfectly clear" that the players want

Chandler did his part in carrying the Chargers to the AFC East title — grabbing 6 catches for 106 yards in the victory over Miami. Brother Chandler is a Florida graduate with six years in the league. He went to the Pro Bowl in 1979. This year, he averaged over 16 yards a reception — winding up with 69 catches for 1,142 yards and 6 TD's. New Orleans loss was obviously the Chargers gain!



Brother ERIC T. DAY, 28-year old criminal justice professional on the staff of Mobile County Sheriff Tom Purvis, has been selected for the 1981 Outstanding Young Men of America Awards. Brother Day, presently assistant planning officer at the Sheriff's Office, served first as assistant director then as director of the successful Mobile County Work Release Center before it was turned over to the state and later as assistant warden of the county jail. Day has been with the Sheriff's Office since early 1977.

Brother Eric T. Day

He is a native of Mobile County, graduate of Toulminville High School and holds the bachelor of arts and masters of education degrees from the University of South Alabama. His undergraduate major was criminal justice administration with a double minor in political science and sociology. A honor student with a 4.0 average twice at USA, Day was a member of Alpha Phi Sigma, national criminal justice honor society; Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges; Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity; Omicron Kappa Delta, honor and service organization; Lambda Alpha Epsilon, American criminal justice association; and Omicron Delta Kappa, national honor and service society. He received the 1977 award for scholastic excellence among students in criminal justice administration and also in political science; served as president of the Black Student Union 1975-77; was man of the year for Alpha Phi Alpha; associate justice of the USA traffic court; member USA faculty parking

committee; senior senator; treasurer of both Alpha Phi Alpha and OKD; chairman of the records and monitors committee and member of the 1976 USA graduation exercise committee. Brother Day is married to the former Valerie Jones and they have two children, Eric Jr. and Joaquin. He is a member of Beta Omicron Lambda Chapter in Mobile.

DR. CHARLES A. GREEN, Arizona's first black college president, officially assumed the Presidency of Maricopa Technical Community College in Phoenix, Arizona on July 1, 1981. Dr. Green, 41, was selected from more than 190 applicants during a nationwide search. According to District Chancellor, Dr. Paul Eisner, Green is one of the finest educators in the country. He is respected throughout the nation and comes highly recommended by legislators and educators in Minnesota. Prior to coming to Phoenix, Dr. Green was Dean of Continuing Education at Inver Hills Community College in Minnesota. Before that time he was a full professor of business and management at American Technological University in Texas. He is particularly proud of his earlier training in vocational and technical education at Central High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a natural extension of this vocational training, Dr. Green attended Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio and graduated in 1961 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology. During his tenure as an officer in the U.S. Army, Dr. Green acquired a Master's Degree in Management and Industrial Supervision from Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. After a fruitful career with the Army in various technical, research and management positions, he attended the University of Texas at Austin graduating with a Doctorate in Administration. Dr. Green brings a strong commitment to students — he espouses "the student is the most important thing." He believes that the future Maricopa Technical Community College will be reflective of the growth of technical industry in the State of Arizona. Specifically, "Maricopa Technical Community College will provide educational leadership in the area of vocational and technical education." The Sphinx/Winter 1981

m Brother E. LEWIS GREGORY, Life Underwriter and General Manager of the Prudential Insurance Company of Xenia, as well as a Realtor, and General Manager of Dillingham, Inc. Realtors of Xenia, Ohio, recently had one of his articles entitled, "Direct Mail Campaigns Can Lead to Lower Cost and More Sales," published by Real Estate Today, the official publication of the National Association of Realtors. Brother Gregory stated that this was the beginning of a series of publications he is writing on communication skills in sales.

This era is not the first in which Black Americans have made substantial progress toward equality . . . only to be stripped of their rights. In 1862, Republican voters in South Carolina (practically all ot them Black) cast 91,870 votes. Yet in that state's election ot 1888, only 13,740 Republican votes were cast. There were 130,334 Blacks registered to vote in Louisiana in 1896. By 1900, after a new State Constitution had been adopted, this number dropped to 5,320.

to throw an Easter party for the underprivileged kids in the neighborhood. More recently we have wholeheartedly volunteered our services to the local American Red Cross. On September 23, 1981 the Brothers held a blood drive in the Student Union Building on the campus on T.S.U. This endeavor turned out to be very successful. We gained considerable cooperation from the student body and exceeded the goals set by the Red Cross concerning the number of pints of blood needed. We were delighted to serve the community in this manner, because each person that gave blood received a donors' card which will enable them to obtain free blood for themselves or a member of their family if ever needed. This not only helps the student body, but community's health care system, and adds to the overall well-being of the community as well, because the "gift of life and health is needed constantly." We, the Brothers of Beta Omicron Chapter, are proud of our accomplishments and achievements. And we will continue to try to uphold the fine image of our beloved fraternity on and off the campus of Tennessee State University. In closing we would like to wish Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. a happy 75th birthday. May we continue to strive for the good of mankind for years to come.

Some of our projects were an Easter Egg Hunt, a Halloween party, and a trip to the N.C. State Fair for children from a nearby community child-care center. Visits to a convalescent center and yard care of one of the handicapped children's schools were also some of our regular service projects. Besides striving for excellence on the campus yard, the Eta Omicron Chapter has outstretched its dutiful hands to acquaint other schools with ideals of our great Fraternity. Another Alpha chapter is in the making at Atlantic Christian College in Wilson, NC. With our assistance this chapter will grow just as our great Fraternity did from its beginning in 1906. Along with celebrating our Fraternity's 75th birthday, we at Eta Omicron had the pleasure of commemorating 10 years of Alpha being on the campus of N.C. State. In closing, may we all continue to grow in our quest for excellence. Look toward that light â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that Alpha light!

jackson state u Brother Patton Elected SGA Prexy Fraternal greetings are brought from the Brothers of the Delta Phi Chapter on the campus of Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi. Delta Phi continues to strive "Upward toward the Light" in its endeavors to remain "Servants of All." In the Spring of 1981, 20 young men, after a long and tiresome strive for Alpha, were initiated into the Fraternity. They were the Twenty Treacherous Titans of Delta Phi. Composed within the line were eight young men from Millsaps College. They have now established a new chapter on that campus, Omicron Gamma, and Alpha's sphere of influence is increased. During the course of this eventful year the Brothers of Delta Phi Chapter have been holding the name of Alpha high in many ways. We helped Brother Henry Kirksey, State Senator of Mississippi, campaign for Mayor of Jackson, working closely with Brother Robert Walker, the State Field Director for the NAACP on voter registration and the NAACP membership drives. The chapter has adopted Sickle-Cell Anemia as a chapter project and has The Sphinx/Winter 1981

been setting up testing centers in several locations to benefit the surrounding communities. Also Brothers have participated in the "Big Brothers" program. As always, Delta Phi maintains a high standard of excellence on the campus and a high level of community service. It is fortunate that Delta Phi enjoys and deserves a reputation of leadership and distinction on the campus of Jackson State University. Much to the testimony of this was the election of Brother Samuel Patton as the President of the Student Government Association and the appointment of Brother Patton as the State Wide Coordinator of the Black College Day Activities in Mississippi. Just another "Too Cold" Alpha leader holding the name of Alpha high. The officers for the 1981-82 school year are as follows: Larry Baggett, President; Lemuel Hawkins, Vice President; Herbert Davis, Second Vice President; Dale Shepherd, Secretary; Jeffery Martin, Treasurer; Michael Rooks, Business Manager; Keith Adams, Sergeant-at-Arms; Reginal Franklin; Editor-to-the-Sphinx; James Washington, Historian; and Floyd Williams, Dean of Pledgees.

bethune - cookman An Active Year For Delta Beta Greetings, fellow Brethren, from the Delta Beta Chapter, Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Florida. The Brothers of Delta Beta have chosen this year to re-establish our chapter as a pillar in the college sector of greek organizations. Taking control of the campus once again, the Brothers have initiated programs of a social, political, and cultural nature that help to draw the college closer to the community. We began the year by registering voters for the upcoming city elections and working on the re-election of Commissioner Bernard Smith. Also on the political scene the chapter initiated a letter writing campaign to President Reagan for extension of the Voting Rights Act and making Brother Martin Luther King's birthday a national holiday. We also held a political forum on the topic, 'The Future .of Blacks in Politics." The Brothers of Delta Beta would also like to introduce the 1981 Pledge Line. They are Tyrone Virgil, Bernard Jackson, George Burnside, Todd Mai one, Terrence Culver, Kevin The Sphinx/Winter 1981

Perry, Anthony Cochran, and Jeffery Lloyd. Educational plaudits are also extended to Brother Frank Trueblood for being elected to Who's Who Among American Colleges and Universities. Winding down the month of October the Brothers made a sizeable contribution to the United Negro College Fund and held a trick-a-treat for UNICEF, with proceeds going to Africa. This was a hearty beginning for a diamond celebration. Remain forever righteous to the cause and keep looking ever towards the light of Brotherhood.

u of north Carolina IFC Service Award To Mu Zeta Greetings from the Mu Zeta Chapter at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The Brothers of Mu Zeta are looking forward to an active year as we hold high the light of Alpha Phi Alpha. The guiding administration for 1981-82 is Alonzo Thompson, President; Bryan Johns, Vice-President; Michael Ross, Secretary; Harmon Crutchfield, Treasurer; William Daniels, Parliamentarian; Gregory Whitted, Chaplain; and Darryl Hart, Dean of Pledgees. At the close of the Spring semester, the chapter was the recipient of the Interfraternity Council Service Project Award for its service to the UNC community. In addition, Red Cross presented the chapter with a certificate for the best organized campus blood drive. Starting out this year's service agenda, several Brothers served as counselors for the Project Uplift Program, which is designed to acquaint Black high school juniors with UNC. In addition, several Brothers also served as counselors in the campus pre-orientation program for incoming Black freshmen. Other events include a "welcome back to school disco," a canned food drive, a Thanksgiving donation to an area family, and Founders' Week activities for December 1-4, 1981. We also would like to congratulate Brother Darryl Hart on his selection to the UNC Interfraternity Council as VicePresident for Minority Affairs. We also extend congratulations to Brother David Brown on his election as Chairperson of the UNC Black Greek Council. This year brings many challenges for the Brothers of the Mu Zeta Chapter, but the high standards of Alpha â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Manly Deeds, Scholarship and Love for all Mankind â&#x20AC;&#x201D; make us ready to meet those challenges. We wish the best for all our Brothers in the chapters across the land as they uphold the glory and true meaning of the noblest Fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha.

south Carolina Alpha Psi Lambda Hosts States,Plans For Regional Alpha Psi Lambda Chapter served as host chapter for the South Carolina State Meeting. The conference was held January 16-18, 1981. The Carolina Town House served as conference headquarters. The Carolina Town House was the setting for the business sessions, the Miss Black and Gold Pageant, and the Black and Gold Banquet. The Black and Gold Dance was held at the Masonic Temple on Gervais Street. It was at the Black and Gold Dance that Brother Bob Simmons and the chapter president, Cecil Adderley, recognized Brother Frank Elliot, Jr., and Brother Thomas S. Martin for their fiftieth year in the Fraternity. The Alphabettes were, as usual, very cooperative in helping the Brothers to make this conference the success that it was. The conference ended with Sunday worship at Bethel A.M.E. Church. Brother Frank Madison Reid, Jr., Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, Seventh District, was the speaker. In 1982, the chapter will do it all over again on a larger scale as it hosts the Southern Regional in Columbia April 8-10.

Plans "Men of Tomorrow" Greetings from the Brothers of Mu Zeta Lambda, Polk County, Florida. We recently held our annual Halloween Carnival featuring the Haunted House at the Rochelle Gymnasium in Lakeland, Florida. This activity provides an excellent medium for local area kids to enjoy Halloween night in a safe, supervised environment. Everyone, young and old alike, had a wonderful time and are already looking forward to next year. 39

We are also working tirelessly towards our 1981-82 Men of Tomorrow Contest, scheduled for January 23, 1982. This program showcases area high school males as they vie for scholarships and other prizes commensurate with their final standing in the contest. This also allows them to display any special talents they may possess. This event also allows us to lend our Alpha influence and qualities to them as they prepare to become the leaders of tomorrow. This year's program is being chaired by Brother Marvin McCloud and we are anticipating our greatest turnout to date.

SOUTHWEST dillard university Beta Phi Rated "Most Popular Greeks" We, the members of Beta Phi Chapter (Dillard University), would like to extend our congratulations to our brothers for the 75th year of excellence. At this time one of our major concerns is working with the re-election campaign of Brother (and Past General President) Ernest "Dutch" Morial. During this month, we were presented a check in the amount of $500 from the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation which will help to supplement our scholarship fund. It has been estimated that we have contributd over $20,000 in service to the S.C.A. Foundation. We were voted by the students of Dillard University as the "Most Popular Greeks" on campus, in a contest sponsored by the N.A.A.C.P. The Vice-President of our S.G.A. and most members of the executive board of the college chapter of N.A.A.C.P. are brothers. In the annual Dillard University Christmas Dinner, we placed first in the table decoration competition; second in a Greek Show competition sponsored by the Miller Beer Corporation and second in the singing competition. After presenting an award for outstanding achievement to Brother John Louis Wilson (initiated 1922, he worked as an assistant to Jewel Vertner Woodson Tondy and is an outstanding alumnus of D.U.), we topped off the year by honoring our Seven Jewels and the excellence of Alpha's history. General President Ozell Sutton was our guest speaker. Other distinguished guests in attendance were Brother Mar40

We are awaiting your arrival in 1983.

WEST CQI state polytechnic u lota Psi Welcomes Freshmen To Campus The men of Iota Psi Chapter at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, send greetings to all the Brothers of our great Alpha Phi Alpha. We want all of Alphadom to know that we at Iota Psi are marching onward and upward holding high the name of Alpha. We highlighted the spring quarter by ending our spring pledge line. The neophyte Brothers who finally saw the light are Darly Clarke, Shawn Gillespie and Steven Wright. We would, in addition, like to extend congratulations to Brothers Gregory Davis, Terrance McGee and Donald Simmons (past AVP for the Western Region) for completing their arduous journey to spring quarter graduation. During the summer the Brothers of Iota Psi sponsored a barbeque on campus for the neighborhood youths participating in the Summer Science Program at Cal-Poly. After the Diamond Jubilee Convention, our chapter president, Brother Bill Releford, spent the remainder of the summer in Ghana, Africa. Bill served as a research intern at the Ghana School of Medicine doing research on tropical diseases. Iota Psi opened the 1981-82 school year with its First Annual Freshman Social. The purpose of the social was to welcome and acquaint the freshmen to the university. Our chapter advisor, Brother Bert Hammon, along with Brother Craig Norman, gave inspiring messages to those in attendance. The Brothers closed the social with a ques-

tion and answer period that expressed a great deal of interest toward the fraternity. Some of our plans for the school year include: 1) our tutorial program at Ramona Junior High School in Pomona; 2) the New Alpha Thrust; 3) a welcome to campus social for the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha; 4) involvement in "The Final Conflict," a step contest which claims the best march team on the West Coast; and 5) active participation in the planning for the National Convention to be held in Los Angeles. As you know, our next national Convention will be held in Los Angeles, and it will be dedicated to the "College Brothers." If there are any events you would like to have, feel free to drop a line to Iota Psi Chapter and we will see to it that your interests are expressed. "L.A. is the place" and we look forward to seeing you there. In closing Iota Psi Chapter challenges all chapters to work hard and support our fraternal bonds marked by "manly deeds, scholarship and love for all mankind." With this thought in mind may each chapter grow stronger and maintain the brilliance and glory of the noblest fraternity in the land.

year anniversary of our crossing the burning sands into Alphadom on November 22, 1980.

Eta Sigma's scholarship committee, led by past president Dennis Myers, is making a wholehearted effort to make this year's scholarship fund a success. In closing Eta Sigma would like to wish all the undergraduate Brothers a successful '81-'82 college year and to Brothers everywhere, let's continue to make Alpha Phi Alpha the fraternity that is about making the leaders of today and tomorrow.

California New Leadership In Sacramento Zeta Beta Lambda of Sacramento, California installed its officers for 1981-1983 at an Installation Dinner on September 14, 1981. This great and prestigious affair was held at Vangaris Restaurant, 20th & K St., Sacramento. The installation ceremony was performed by our very own Brother Curtis Woodard who accepted this task in the absence of Brother Clinton Minnis, Vice President, Western Region. Due to unexpected problems. Brother Minnis could not attend. The spirit of Alphadom permeated the installation ceremony. Brother Woodard did an out41

standing job as usual. Officers installed were: Brothers Wilbur A.

climate of change and progress in the nation. Alpha must say "enough is enough" and move to re-establish human dignity and human freedom as primary objectives in America. Nine percent unemployment in the nation is more than enough. Twenty percent unemployment among Black Americans is more than enough. Fifty percent unemployment among Black youth is more than enough. The old and the infirmed have suffered enough hunger due to the lack of an adequate income and enough pain due to the lack of good medical care. Black Americans hold a promissory note on the emoluments of America and the time they have waited for payment is enough. The Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., must say to America Enough is Enough. I call on every individual Alphaman, every chapter, every state and region to join the fight to "Secure the Future" for ourselves and our children. We must fight to extend the Voting Rights Act. We must fight to make Dr. King's birthday a national holiday. We must fight the cuts in food stamps, old age assistance and programs of educational assistance and uplift. We must fight for the civil rights programs. 42

Brunch. Members of this Brunch Committee are: Brothers Marcus Crowder, Chairman; Curtis Woodard, CoChairman; Wilbur A. Beckwith and James Shelby. This event is scheduled for the 2nd Sunday in March 1982. Authorization was granted by the Western Regional Vice President to begin planning to start an undergraduate chapter at Chico State. The future chapter would be under the auspices of the Sacramento graduate chapter, Zeta Beta Lambda. On Sept. 26, 1981 several Brothers went to Chico State for an Alpha workshop. The trip was very successful as attested by the Brothers who participated, i.e., Brothers Wilbur Beckwith, "Gus" Davis, King Brooks, Claude Odom, Arunious Gay, Jacques Barber, Curtis Woodard, Frederick Wilkins, Herman

Sanders and Thomas Salsbury. The group met with graduate Brother Steve Irwin who is the primary contact. Brother Irvin was made at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Good rapport was definitely enhanced as groundwork was started for the future chapter. In the spirit of Alphadom, several Brothers of Zeta Beta Lambda traveled to San Francisco, CA on Oct. 22, 1981 to meet and socialize with our General President, Brother Ozell Sutton. It was a grand occasion — an evening to remember. The event was hosted by the Bay area chapters. The president discussed the furtherance of Alpha Phi Alpha, the New Alpha Thrust, and plans for the 76th General Convention which will be held in Los Angeles, California.

There is no question but that the fight has been made more difficult by an insensitive and uncaring government. But we must fight nevertheless. Let us take heart in that poem familiar to each Alphaman —"Invictus" — and move with the resolve inherent therein.

going through the Manual (as mandated by the General Convention) to make any corrections, deletions and/or additions. We expect to have this item printed sometime later in the Spring of 1982; until that time, the manuals will not be available. The earliest date that we can project would be immediately following the General Convention — about September 1st, which would allow chapters enough time to adequately supply their files. All new publications take time . . . and we ask for your cooperation while this new manual is being prepared. In closing, allow me to suggest that your New Year's Resolution (albeit belated) be a commitment to follow the principles set forth by our Founders and articulated by our current national program. Only you can keep Alpha Number 1 — by supporting its programs; by reclaiming inactive Brothers; by introducing (yes, that is like recruiting) Alpha to prospective members; and, above all, by doing 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 and through the contributions of the thousands of men who have pledged to be "Servants of All." The General Office staff is on hand to serve you and we welcome your input on all matters which you feel might be of benefit to our beloved Fraternity.

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, 1 thank whatever gods there be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance 1 have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody but unbowed. Beyond this space of wrath and tears Looms but the horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with purnishment the scroll, I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul. William Ernest Henley Fraternally,

He ws past president of the Virginia Council on Human Relations; member of the Trustee Board of Virginia Union University; member of the Board of Directors of the United Way, the Governor's Commission on Higher education, past president of the National Bankers Association and a life member of the NAACP. A memorial service was conducted October 3, 1981, at Calvary Baptist Church in Danville. He is survived by his wife, Hortense; a son, Conrad, Jr.; and three daughers, Irene, Edwina and Paula. Brother WILLIAM EARL PHILON, "Bill" as he was affectionately known to his friends, was a quiet, ever smiling, pleasant man. He received his early education at Mobile County and Choctaw County schools in Alabama, the Bachelor of Science degree at Alabama State University and the Master of Science degree at the University of Dayton. A life member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, he was employed as an industrial arts teacher in the Dayton Public School system. He was a veteran, vice president of Dayton Techers Guild, member of Dayton Education Association, Ohio Education, National Education, Doris L. Allen Minority Caucus and Phi Delta Kappa Educational Fraternity. His family, his church, his profession and his fraternity were his life. He professed Christ at an early age and, upon moving to Dayton in 1967, he joined Mt. Moriah Baptist Church. He served faithfully, until his death, as Superintendent of the Sunday School, as member of the Christian education board, and as a trustee on the Finance Committee. He departed this life April 12, 1981. Brother JOHN REUBEN SHEELER, an active member of Alpha Eta Lambda Chapter, Houston, Texas, entered Omega Chapter September 23, 1981, following a brief illness. Brother Sheeler was an outstanding educator, a distinguished Professor of History at Texas Southern University, and an instructor at the University of Houston.

Brother Sheeler served as Visiting Professor throughout the country on behalf of the United States; a delegate to a UNESCO Conference, and a Cultural Specialist in Pakistan, India. Brother Sheeler was Consul between Texas and the Haitian government for twenty years; he served as a Director of State Laboratory Schools in Montgomery, Alabama; he was a member of the Board of Directors for the Study of Negro Life and History; he was a member of the Board of Directors of Texas Southern Finance Company and Pastor of St. Paul C.M.E. Church. Brother JAMES A. SHELTON entered Omega Chapter September 4th, 1981, following an extended illness at Veterans' Hospital in Beckley, West Virginia. Brother Shelton was born in Webster County, Kentucky, July 24, 1895. He received his secondary education at Wilberforce University, Lincoln University and the University of Cincinnati, where he received his Baccalaureat Degree. Brother Shelton was a veteran of World War #1 and devoted much of his earlier life to the establishment of the Luther Patternson Post of the American Legion in Kimball, West Virginia — the culmination of which was the erection and opening of the First Memorial Building in the Country deeded to and dedicated to black veterans who served in the United States Armed forces. Brother Shelton's contribution to the educational development of McDowell County, West Virginia, is widely recognized. Brother Shelton was a founder of Alpha Zeta Lambda Chapter, Bluefield, West Virginia. He is survived by his wife, Nokomis, and many collateral relatives and friends.
