EDITOR'S REVIEW GREETINGS . . . THE HOUSE OF ALPHA: When you pass the site of the old General Office facility, at 4432 South Martin Luther King Drive in Chicago, it's hard to believe that the building is gone. The lot has a sort of aura, like the vague haze that surrounds some of those old duotone photographs of great-grandpa that hung over the mantle in the family homestead. Maybe it's because the frequent visitor strains so hard to recall the outlines and details of the building that it seems to materialize in faint, ephemeral substance. Of course, most Brothers were not so familiar with this mystical haunt; most never even visited the General Office building. The nostalgic amongst us are few in number and it is imperative that they, that we, leave all dreams behinds, savor the mem'ries fond and get on with the business of erecting a new national headquarters building. The foundation of this campaign is the payment of the fraternal obligation by every Brother, for only when the average Brother displays his commitment by payment of the very modest assessments can we expect to build momentum in our major gifts drive. Meet your fraternal obligation today! . . . THE ALPHA SPIRIT: We'd welcome your comments, critiques and contributions to our newest publication — The Alpha Spirit. This tabloid-sized, four-color newsletter is designed as a communications vehicle for every Alpha Man, regardless of active status. If you have a family member or line brother who's strayed from the active ranks, please send in for a free subscription to The Alpha Spirit for him — using the "Share The Spirit" coupon found on Page 6 of the newsletter. Let us hear from you . . . ARCHIVAL JOURNEY: Let me take this opportunity to thank the many Brothers who've written or called to express support for the ideas expressed in our Legacy article "The Archival Imperative" (Fall 1988). Even more importantly, I'm pleased that we've generated a flurry of activity of the archival kind amongst the Brotherhood. Already, we've received valuable materials and more have been promised. Brothers Lionel H. Newsom, Chairman of the Historical Commission, and Herman Mason have been especially supportive of our efforts. It is my fervent hope that Parts Two (in this issue) and Three (forthcoming) will involve even more Brothers in the vital task of preserving our heritage . . . FOCUS: Many thanks to Brother John Rice of Gamma Iota Lambda Chapter for penning the article of New York City Schools Chancellor Richard Green. Brother Green is an outstanding educator and motivator. We can only hope that politicians, high and low, will give him leeway to accomplish his mission — the education of that city's young people . . . MILITARY BEAT: In this issue we share correspondence from the Brothers in "The Land of the Morning Calm" — members of Mu Phi Lambda Chapter in Seoul, Korea. Profiles on other military Chapters will be coming in future issues . . . NEWSMAKERS: It was news to me that the Mayor of Vicksburg, Mississipi was an Alpha Man. Indeed, I was momentarily disoriented when State Director Wiley Jones informed me that I would be introduced as the State Convention's Banquet Speaker by "the Mayor'." The Mayor? Introducing Whom? In any event, that meeting was highlighted by the opportunity to meet and talk with this progressive political leader. You can meet him in this feature . . . CAMPUS WATCH: Brother Julius Nimmons joins the ranks of Alpha College Presidents as he takes the helm at Jarvis Christian College in Hawkins, Texas . . . ALPHA ATHLETES: Brother Art Shell, former terror with the Oakland Raiders and now a coach with the Los Angeles Raiders, was justly inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame this year. Thanks to Brother Joe C. Thomas, former Chairman of the Publications Committee, for his major role in compiling the information needed to pen this article . . . LET US HEAR FROM YOU! Periodically we need to revisit some basic principles which undergird our publications program, especially in light of the rapid turnover which is inherent in the college ranks and increasingly a factor in the alumni sphere. Thus, this reminder that the volunteer contributions of Brothers in the field are the key determinant in the scope of our work. I simply don't know, cannot know, of the accomplishments of more than 700 Chapters and tens of thousands of Brothers from my office in Chicago and limited field visits. I must depend upon you — Chapter Editors and Brothers at large — to write and submit articles for publication. I would especially remind my College Brothers that the Alphas On The Move and There Goes An Alpha Man sections are fully open to them. Certainly few collegians are mayors or congressmen, but they are SGA presidents, class officers, outstanding scholars and model student-athletes. Any article received profiling a young Brother of accomplishment will be duly printed in the next available issue . . . Until next issue . . . MJP.

THE GENERAL PRESIDENT SPEAKS The Prospects for a Kinder, Gentler America My dear brothers in Alpha, this column in the Sphinx offers a wonderful opportunity for communication which I intend to utilize during my Presidency. I also hope that you will communicate your responses to some of the topics and questions that I pose. Initially, I had intended and I will in future columns, address the need for a national fraternal headquarters, the need to increase membership and the importance of reactivation of inactive brothers. However, in the initial column, I wanted to share something with you that I consider very timely. Over the last ten days, I've had the p r i v i l e g e to m e e t w i t h P r e s i d e n t George Bush on several occasions. In groups with other college Presidents, with members of his transition team as well as some brief moments for some individual words. The mood in the nation's capital appears to be one of inclusion and communication. This sends a positive message to the nation. The President's campaign promise of a kinder, gentler nation is most appreciated and appropriate for the initiation of the Bush/Quayle administration. The challenges facing the new administration are possibly more serious than those facing any peace time

administration of the 20th century. The widening gap between the haves and the have nots, in a nation which has become conditioned to privilege, more are fearing of becoming underprivileged. America and Americans are no longer immune from terrorism and terrorist activities. New forms of racism, more violent and dangerous than mere racial prejudice, daily make their appearance on the evening news. Education must remain the attain-

able American dream and not become simply an entitlement for the wealthy. The educators with w h o m I met President Bush with as a g r o u p emphasized this point. Urban problems and economic uncertainties cast a dark shadow for this last decade of the 20th century. President Bush, through his "1,000 points of light", could clarify and illuminate many of these problems, and if his administration can guide America through these serious dilemmas, domestically and internationally, we will all live in a kinder world. We can expect that the people of America will reflect upon the Bush promises. If, however, the kinder promise becomes an empty platitude or a broken promise, the path to the 21st century will be darker. The President has requested 100 days to implement his programs. This seams a reasonable request. We all will benefit if the promise becomes a reality. Fraternally,

Henry Ponder General President Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

Brother T. L. Ganges

Bringing A Message of Hope Brother T. L. Ganges, was born in Trenton, New Jersey but he was raised in near-by Bordentown where he received his early education. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lincoln University in Oxford, Pennsylvania and a Master's of Education degree from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. As an undergraduate he began to write poetry and his early works appeared frequently in the campus newspaper. After graduating from Lincoln University in 1972 he became a diarist plus he completed a verse play. In 1979 he was an area-winner of the prestigious "Thomas Jefferson Award" and in 1981 he was listed in the volume Outstanding Young Men in America. During the past twelve years he has successfully taught both high school and college students a variety of courses in English. He has organized two student gospel choirs plus he was twice elected as "The Teacher Of The Year" by a student organization. At the present time he is employed "as a high school English teacher in a d d i t i o n to accepting s p e a k i n g engagements as a touring poet. During the spring of 1980, Mr. Ganges began to poetically attack illegal drug usage, teenage pregnancy, illiteracy, athletic slavery, crime, racism and despair before enthusias-

Brother Blake Moorman

tic audiences and congregations at various schools, churches and colleges. The finale of his poetry presentation consists Mr. Ganges walking out into the audience and distributing "nickel bags of hope" which contain a brief anti-drug poem in addition to a single mustard seed which is a symbol of biblical faith. Thus far he has read and performed his "inspirational oneman poemshow" at more than fifty different places. His work is intended to teach kids, among other things, that there is more to being a man than fathering a child or subscribing to the violence of life on the streets. "The more education you have, the more choices your have, and the more opportunity that a kid would have to fulfill his dreams. Pregnancy, drugs and illiteracy could hinder a person from making their dreams come true." One of Ganges' goals is to work with officials to improve conditions. "As a native-born Trentonian, I am willing to work with any politician or any clergyman to minister to the needs of the teenagers that have not been met," he said.

Moorman Spotlighted in "A Soldier's Play" The November '88 issue of the Jubilee Theatre Newsletter spotlighted Brother Blake Moorman. Brother The Sphinx/Spring 1989


M o o r m a n was initiated at Texas Christian University and now serves as one of the chapter's advisors. Since then, he has performed in his seventh show for Jubilee, and was chosen as a "1988 Outstanding Young Man of America". Presently Brother Moorman is a member of Beta Tau Lambda, Phi Theta Kappa, and Prince Hall Masonic Lodge of Texas #75. Rudy Eastman was looking for some girl dancers for his "Cotton Club Night" revue. He called on Alpha Phi Alpha member John Gales, who is associated with Jubilee Players, for assistance. He in turn enlisted the help of then Alpha Phi Alpha president (TCU), Blake Moorman. Blake helped escort the dancers to the audition and, once there, John pressured him to try out. Blake ended up carrying a heavy part in the show after having been absent from the stage since his Trimble Tech days five years earlier. Besides "Cotton Club Night," Blake has appeared in "Bre'r Rabbit Meets Tar Baby," "Drums," "Class of '62," "Prodigal," and "Negroes in Space." His melodic, finely tuned voice and his dancing skills make him a top notch entertainer. His background in music is extensive. Starting out in the Texas Boy's Choir, the Gospel Choir at Trimble Tech, a n d had the lead in "The Marriage of Figaro" at T.C.J.C.South Campus. Besides appearing on Jubilee's stage, Blake will work in the theatre in any capacity. He was Tesponsible for the successful publicity in the first showing of "Negroes in Space" at the Caravan of Dreams. This energetic man also has many interests beyond theater. He works in the office of the Funny Bone Comedy Club in Arlington and is member of the Ft. Worth, Tx Alumni Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha. Blake's model in life is Paul Robeson and he credits his mother, Lillie, with inspiring and supporting him."

Pollard Named to Corporate Personnel Post Brother Percy E. Pollard, Sr., a 1966 graduate of Virginia State University The Sphinx/Spring 1989

There goes a man of high impulse Of princely mien and grace There goes a man of humble faith A credit to his race There goes a man of conscience vast with will to reach his goal There goes a man of lordly rank Of heroes' stock and soul— There goes a man of noble caste Whom hardship cannot break There goes a man in merit clad Whom duty won't forsake There goes a man in cultured verse Who holds a sportsman's creed There goes a man too vigilant To bow to lust or greed There goes a man whose life is spent in service not in scorn There goes a man whose majesty Shines like a May time

There goes a man who is a friend To love and duty truth There goes a man to help uplift I he lives of wholesome youth There goes a man with n industry and faith at his command. There goes the best man in and out For he i\ an Alpha Man. Page 7


Fine Tuning Our Membership Program Brother Napoleon Moses, Chairman of the Committee on Membership, Standards and Extension, reviews the critical membership-related issues which will be addressed at the 1989 General Convention in San Antonio, Texas. We need your ideas to help us change the way we run our fraternity's membership program. When we meet at the General Convention in San Antonio this summer, we will consider alternatives to the crisis and chaos we now have. Membership Infrastructure and Standardized Pledge Program proposals will be presented to Convention Delegates. Membership Infrastructure. Philosopher George Santayana once said, "Having lost sight of my goal, I double my effort." Surely, Alpha cannot afford such an attitude. We work harder than ever to serve our membership. We propose that we work smarter instead. Alpha needs trained and constitutionally approved field workers to assist our Regional VicePresidents and the General Office . . . and we need them now. We are proposing one organizational structure that gives Alpha accountability from our General Convention to the Chapter. We expect and welcome debate on our proposals because we know open dialogue will strengthen them. We will circulate proposed constitutional amendments to chapters that explain the following proposed membership management officials: (1) District Directors— these membership managers will report directly to RVP's. Responsible for designated population centers within regions. District Directors would manage geographical regions such as the State of Texas, or southern California. Our goal is not to change current structures that work, but to standardize the current District/State/Regional Director nomenclature. (2) Area Director—will provide organizational continuity and accountability by managing membership problems involving a cluster of college and alumni chapters within a state or region such as (a) an Atlanta, GA Area Director, (b) a Research Triangle, NC Area Director or (c) a New York City Area Director. (3) Advisor—will serve both college and alumni chapters, supervising Page 8

pledge programs, managing risks related activities and providing chapter management training to both. A summary of our proposed membership infrastructure as follows: General Convention Board of Directors General President Regional Vice-Presidents and their Assistants District Directors Area Directors Advisors Chapters Our Pledge Program. A new generation of college men has erupted in our midst. Many come from single parent homes. Others have seen family members join greek organizations and bring a range of concerns shaped from these experiences. Most view college fraternal life as both mindless frolic with adolescent hazing and brutality. Fewer want to pledge fraternities in general, and less than one in ten of those who do pledge Alpha stay active after college. Something is wrong with the way we admit members. We propose a standardized pledge program to address this membership crisis. A standardized curriculum organized similar to the Risk Management Curriculum, standardized probation activities, and case study examples explaining allowable activities would constitute the program. Our goal is to ensure that every chapter initiates a member using the same methods all other chapters use from start to finish.

The hallmark of our proposal is a move to a task oriented instructional approach to pledging. We hope to use the best of the old to create a new, prudent membership admission program. We plan to present to the General Convention a "Resolution On Pledging," after receiving input from appropriate committees (i.e. College Brothers Affairs, Constitution, Rituals, and Membership), officers and delegates. The resolution would outline the purpose, goals, objectives and strategies for running a pledge program within college and alumni chapters, listing day by day allowable activities. It would authorize the Committee on Membership, Standards, and Extension and the General Office to develop, disseminate and train field staff (see Proposed Infrastructure above) on how to implement the Standardized Pledge Program. The resolution would be circulated to chapters before the Convention allowing members to review it and suggest additional ideas. We encourage this open process since we are proposing to change a pledge sytem that is institutionalized and has outlived its useful — as well as our ability to manage it. So, get involved now by sending your ideas to me at our General Office address. Often, when leadership proposes changes in tradition or operation, it is done using the cloak of emergency. Sometimes this is warranted. Usually it is not. Brother Justice Thurgood Marshall reminded us of this folly recently saying, "History teaches that grave threats to liberty often come in times of urgency, when constitutional rights seem too extravagant to endure." We are mindful of this counsel as we offer these ideas for change. Yet, we know that changing the way we manage our chapters our pledge program is essential to our fraternity's survival — even as other fraternities fail to adapt and cease to exist. It may inconvenience some of us. But we are a point in our development where duty and decision meets. We will grow or die. The Sphinx/Spring 1989


LEGAL FORIM

A Special Report

Alpha's Legal Eagle Takes a Well-Deserved Bow Outgoing General Counsel Milton Carver Davis is a shining star on the American legal scene. From a cursory reading of "The History of Alpha Phi Alpha," it's not clear exactly how many Brothers have served in the office of General Counsel. The listing of General Officers by administration in the index only shows this office from the 27th Administration (1940). This was the last term of the Wesley presidency and Brother Belford V. Lawson was the counsel of record. However, the summary of the 1929 General Convention in Atlanta (Chapter XI, Page 182, 12th Edition) contains the following citation: "A report was made by the General Counsel, Perry B. Jackson, concerning cases of discrimination against black students at Ohio University . . .". Future historians will undoubtedly solve this dilemma, but it is clear from our partial listing of fourteen confirmed counsels that they were a special breed. Jackson's finding led to the creation of the historic "Go To High School — Go To College" campaign. Lawson and Ernest Morial (later Mayor of New Orleans) became General Presidents, in addition to forging distinguished careers in the legal field. Jawn Sandifer was a pioneer in civil rights; James McGee was Mayor of Dayton, Ohio; William H. Brown, III was Chairman of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the list goes on. Those who know him are confident that the immediate past General Counsel, Brother Milton C. Davis, will reach similar lofty heights on the American scene. While we wait for their visions to be realized, we can assuredly take a moment to thank this youthful attorney for stellar service during his four-year tenure as General Counsel of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. In this period, 1985 through 1988, Brother Davis focused on girding his beloved Fraternity to protect itself from the many pitfalls which threaten national membership organizations in this litigous society. In so doing, his work has made a dramatic and positive impact on the manner in which we conduct our affairs. Indeed, much of the planning for the next decade will Continued on Page 12

The Sphinx/Spring 1989

While serving as Assistant Attorney General for the State of Alabama, Brother Davis was largely responsiblef or securing a pardon for Clarence Norris — the last survivor of the Scottsboro boys. His stellar performance as Alpha Phi Alpha's General Counsel over the past four years has ushered in a new era of consciousness about the heavy responsibility we assume in managing an international membership organization. He'll now serve as Chairman of the newly created Commission on Racial Justice. Page 9


ALPHA PHI ALPHA EDUCATION FOUNDATION REPORT The subject of this column is HONORS. I wish to honor those Brothers who have made voluntary contributions to the scholarship programs of the Foundation and to honor those college Brothers who have distinguished themselves by being invited to join honor societies. Even without a formal solicitation program, the Education Foundation has received voluntary gifts amounting to $9,553.00. We heartily appreciate these expressions of support for our programs to promote scholastic excellence. The collegiate achievers listed in that honor

roll represent only those reported to the Foundation via The Honors Program. Certainly they represent only a small percentage of the College Brothers inducted into the various honor societies. In any event, the Foundation was proud to underwrite the induction fees of these Brothers who informed us of their selection and we look forward to the expansion of this program in coming years. Hence, w h a t follows is two H O N O R ROLLS. The foundation is proud of those who give and those who achieve.

Eta Gamma Prairie View A St M University Eta Gamma Chapter was founded at Prairie View A&M University on May 15, 1970. For the past 13 years Eta Gamma has been achieving local, regional and national recognition for services to Alpha at all levels. Service is the key to Eta Gamma and performing services for the campus and community is what Alpha is all about. A brief background of a few service projects include: working with the Summer Youth Program, which consists of counseling youth from Junior High to beginning college level; heading a petition against Judge Robert Bork for the position of Supreme Court Justice; heading political forums, one held in the spring entitled "Jesse Jackson, is he ready for the challenge?" and one held recently addressing Republican, Democratic, and Independent viewpoints of the presidential election; and sponsoring a blood drive for the American Red Cross. Other projects were as follows: presenting a Constitution Seminar focusing on certain provisions that directly affect Black people; sponsoring a program recognizing the top professors in various fields of study; reflections honoring the works of Brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; holding an Oratorical Scholarship Contest honoring the late Brother Joseph York for his oratorical skills; holding a Miss Black & Gold Scholarship Pageant; continually functioning with a local Boy Scout troop; sponsoring free sickle cell testing; sponsoring a seminar on developing efficient study skills; visiting a Day-Care center on Halloween; donating foodstuff to a needy family for Thanksgiving; picking up debris on a local highway. Brothers are not only leaders in Alpha, because the need for leadership The Sphinx/Spring 1989

The chapter management that captured the National Crown consisted of the following Brothers: President, Eric K. Dargan; Vice-President, Kevin B. Enders; Recording Secretary, Lonnie Senegal; Corresponding Secretary, Darryl Harris; Treasurer, Richard Lark; Associate Editor to the Sphinx, Allen Reed; Director of Education, Ray Woods; Sergeant-at-Arms, Oscar Davis; Parliamentarian, Elbridge Thrash; Historian, Bradley Jackson; Chaplain, Michael Forney; Dean of Pledges, Eric Williams; and Advisor, Frank Jackson. Other major positions and leadership roles include Brother Troy Johnson- Battalion Commander, Naval ROTC; Richard Lark, President, Architecture Honor Society; Kevin Enders, Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society; Eric Dargan, President, Eta Kappa Nu Electrical Engineering Honor Society; Doug Scott, President,

American Society of Mechanical Engineers; James Whitehead, President, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Honor Society; and Jon Parker, President American Institute of Chemical Engineers. During the Fall semester, Eta Gamma conducted its annual Founders Day Program which honored four outstanding Brothers within the chapter: Brother Van Norman, Outstanding Brother of the Year; Brother Bradley Jackson, Joseph York Service Award; Brother Darryl Harris, Brother with the highest GPA; and Brother Eric Dargan, Distinguished Leadership Award. Eta Gamma Chapter has won the Texas Council of Alpha Chapters' Chapter of the Year Award for the past thirteen consecutive years. The chapter has won just about every fraternity award possible over the past years Continued on Page 12

LEGAL FORUM Continued from Page 9 revolve around issues identified during Brother Davis' comprehensive review of Alpha's legal status. The Davis impact has been so great that it's difficult to believe that his service began only four years ago, when "risk management" was virtually a foreign concept to the rank-and-file Brotherhood. More than the mere establishment of a formal risk management program, the Davis era ushered in a new consciousness about the heavy responsibility we assume when we undertake to manage an international institution in a volunteer fashion. That realization is now clearly present, if not always heeded by every single Brother. The adoption of "The Standing Orders" to govern pledging was the result of a protracted multiyear struggle at successive General Conventions to attain legislation. In contrast, the Risk Management Program was drafted and adopted at a single convention by an overwhelming margin — thanks largely to the case made to the Brotherhood by the General Counsel. The registration of our trademark symbols, the drafting of a licensing program for fraternity paraphernalia, securing tax-deductible status for contributions to the National Headquarters campaign and an extensive membership education program on legal matters are other hallmarks of Brother Davis' tenure. Moreover, the several potentially damaging lawsuits pending against the Fraternity were all resolved without marked damage to the name or fiscal status of the organization. In short, Brother Davis was able to mobilize the Brotherhood and let the world know that Alpha Phi Alpha is serious about dealing with the issues which confront it.

Four years ago, "risk management" was virtually a foreign concept to the rank and file brotherhood. A native of Tuskegee, Alabama, Brother Davis graduated with honors from Tuskegee Institute High School in 1967. He received the Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Tuskegee Institute in 1971; and, in 1974, received the Juris Doctor degree from the University of Iowa. He is Page 12

licensed to practice law in all federal and state courts in the states of Iowa and Alabama; in the U.S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit and Eleventh Circuit; and is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States. Brother Davis is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Alabama. In that position, he gained national acclaim for researching and writing opinions which led to the pardon of Clarence Norris — the last survivor of the tragic Scottsboro Boys. Norris among nine young Blacks convicted and sentenced to death for the alleged rape of two young white women. The flimsy nature of the evidence against the young men was evident early, causing the Governor of Alabama to pardon four of the nine in 1938 (seven years after the trial). Norris received no pardon, although his death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. Fifteen years in prison, a parole, a parole violation, imprisonment again, and escape — ultimately to New York — preceded Norris' bid for official freedom in 1975. After the NAACP was stymied in efforts to help Norris, Brother Davis put the case before Alabama Attorney General Bill Baxley and shepherded the case to a successful conclusion. Brother Davis is now engaged in the general practice of law in his hometown of Tuskegee. In a 1977 article in The Sphinx, the young attorney stated, "This is where it all started. This is home . . . a black community with resources . . . a place where you can develop your potential." He has been appointed Chairman of the newly created Commission on Racial Justice by General President Henry Ponder — a fitting use of his obvious talents after four years of internal housekeeping within the Bond. A Major in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, Brother Davis is married to Dr. Myrtle Goode Davis — a family practitioner and Director of the Lister Hill Medical Center. They are the p a r e n t s of two s o n s : M i l t o n Christopher, age 9; and Warren Allen, age 7. We are certain that much more will be written about Brother Milton C. Davis in the years to come. At this juncture, all of the Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha echo the sentiments expressed by the Board of Directors in January 1989 when it accepted his final report "with grateful appreciation for a job very well done!"

Eta Gamma Continued from Page 11 along with "Chapter of the Year." This past year at the Texas Convention, Eta Gamma went not only to win, but to set the foundation for the struggle to win National Chapter of the Year. Awards won during the convention include: W.E.B. Dubois Academic Award, College Chapter with the highest GPA, Henry Arthur Callis Academic Award, College Brother with the highest GPA, Darryl Harris; Outstanding Brother of the Year Award, Eric Dargan; Oratorical Contest, Kevin Enders; Second place in basketball and step contest. During the Southwestern Regional Convention, Eta Gamma captured the title of Regional Chapter of the Year. Eta Gamma last won Regional Chapter of the Year in 1982 and also won National Chapter of the Year that same year. Another victory was won by Brother Eric Dargan as Outstanding College Brother of the Year for the Southwestern Region. Brother Dargan also was elected to serve as Assistant Regional Vice-President. 1988 was the year that history repeated itself as Eta Gamma upheld the light of Alpha and captured the National Chapter of the Year Award for 1988-89. Eta Gamma dedicated its services and honors to the memory of Brother Joseph Winston, Fall '85, who entered the Omega Chapter in November 1987. For the school year 1988-89, the Brothers of Eta Gamma continued to uphold the light of Alpha by capturing the 1989 Chapter of the Year Awad for the Texas Council of Alpha Chapters. Individual Awards include: Brother of the Year and first place in Oratorical Contest, Brother Kevin Enders; and Brother with the highest GPA, Brother Duane Jubert. Outstanding accomplishments of Brothers on the college level include: Brother Kevin Enders, Engineer of the Year Award for Prairie View A&M University, GEM fellowship recipient; Brother Gregory Edison, Battalion Commander, Army ROTC; Brother Darryl Harris, Battalion Commander, Naval ROTC; and Brother Kevin Jefferson, President, Beta Beta Biological Honor Society. Eta Gamma has a service, scholarship, and doubtless the chapter will make legacy.

The 1988 Alumni Chapter of the Year

Zeta Epsilon Lambda Red Bank, New Jersey Zeta Epsilon Lambda Chapter was chartered in the spring of 1955 by 21 Brothers in Red Bank, New Jersey. The Chapter is located on the Jersey shore in central New Jersey and members come from both Monmouth and Ocean counties. Brother James W. Parker, Jr. of Red Bank was the chapter's first President and is one of the two members of the chapter with 50 or more years in the Fraternity. The chapter currently has 33 active Brothers and under the dynamic leadership of its President, Brother John W. Dorsey of Neptune. Zeta Epsilon Lambda is involved in every aspect of the local community and actively participates in and supports all of Alpha Phi Alpha's state, regional and general organization programs. After winning the New Jersey Alumni Chapter of the Year award for the last three years, Zeta Epsilon Lambda was cited during 1988 by both the Eastern Regional and the General Organization as the Fraternity's most outstanding alumni unit. The chapter has been involved in Project Alpha, the male-focused teen pregnancy prevention program, and has already reached more than 125% of its chapter goal for contributions to the National Headquarters Building Fund campaign — with aggregate donations of $4,200. Zeta Epsilon Lambda also co-sponsors an annual memorial breakfast in honor of Brother Martin Luther King, Jr. During the past year, the chapter participated in the annual Career Day program for Upward Bound students at Georgian Court College, Lakewood, and the Black Family Festival at Brookdale Community College, Middletown Township.

Zeta Epsilon Lambda Chapter is involved in every aspect of the local community and actively participates in and supports all of Alpha Phi Alphas state, regional and general organization programs. Among ZEL's many contributions to local charities were donations of five hundred dollars to the Monmouth County United Way and the Monmouth County Boy Scouts; $1,500 to the NAACP; and, $1,000 to the United Negro College Fund. Zeta Epsilon Lambda also gives annual scholarships to local college bound students, having awarded more than $25,000 over the last five years. The chapter's wide array of charitable gifts are primarily supported by its annual Charity Ball, which last year raised $11,000 to benefit area service agencies and institutions, as well as to support chapter-sponsored service programs. In addition to those cited above, Zeta Epsilon Lambda has lent support to groups such as Planned Parenthood, the African Ethiopian Relief Fund, the West Side Community Center Boys Club, the National Council of Negro Women, the Martin Luther King

Monument fund, the Community Gospel Race Against Hunger and many others. Last Christmas, ZEL teamed with Revlon to donate dolls to disadvantaged children in the area — and the list goes on. Chapter members have been recognized by the local community for outstanding individual service and have taken prominent leadership roles in state and district fraternity affairs. Moreover, one can be sure that Zeta Epsilon Lambda will be represented at every workshop, convention or planning session in its jurisdiction. The chapter also maintains an active social calendar for Brothers, the Alpha Wives and their families — in addition to supporting Brothers who are honored by other organizations. This might be Zeta Epsilon Lambda's first Chapter of the Year citation, but don't count them out in the years to come. Page 13

r ocus Brother Richard R. Green Committed to Quality Education

B

rother (Dr.) Richard R. Green blazed a brand new trail when he finally achieved the educational pinnacle position of New York City's public school system: Chancellor, New York City Public Schools. Although he did not personally participate in the bitter, bruising, politically and even racially involved strife, the struggle had drawn many battle lines as scores of highly qualified educators openly sought the job. Brother Green was officially awarded the position as of July, 1988 but with a generous display of sincerity he began working several months ahead of that date — March, 1988. In order to fully understand the problems that Brother Green must deal with every day, it is necessary to acknowledge the fact that New York City's population of 8,000,000 is more than 50% minority - Black and Latino. These two groups while capable of forming a coalition each wanted one of their own to be Chancellor. The student population which is close to one million is 80% minority with tremendous social service and educational needs including a 70% drop out rate, drug abuse, and discipline problems. The situation is further complicated because the solidly entrenched white minority has long held the power, the top jobs, the allocation of a 6.4 billion dollar school budget, and control of the powerful unions. As in the famous words of Frederick Douglass they had no desire to "willingly relinquish" this sort of power. Recent highly publicized events have proven that if given the slightest excuse the establishment or "white power structure" would immediately and publicly criticize Brother Green in the newspapers and television without even attempting to speak with him first. These are facts, not writers opinion. Mindful of all these facts, Brother (Dr.) George L. Mims, Director of New York State District III Alpha Phi Alpha arranged a reception for Alpha men only on Thursday evening, November 10, 1988 at The Sphinx/Spring 1989

IN MEMORIAM We regret to announce that Brother Richard Green entered Omega Chapter on May 10, 1989. We join his family, his legion of friends and the educational community in mourning the loss of this genius in the field of urban education.

After achieving renown as Superintendent of the Minneapolis Public Schools, Brother Green has tackled education's greatest challenge — leading the decentralized New York School system and educating its nearly 1 million students. Chancellor Green states that "the voice of Alpha is desperately needed in the urban crisis because Alpha has to replenish itself from these very youngsters." Schimmel Theater, Pace University in New York City. He was aided in this effort by Brother Steven B. Skinner, Associate N.Y State Director and by Brother John M. Williams of Gamma Iota Lambda Chapter. The reception was a tremendous success both in terms of the huge turnout; the warm Alpha fellowship; and the chance for the imposing, dignified Chancellor to relax with his

peers, with men he could trust; with men he knew would support him in an hour of crisis. Brother Green who was made an Alpha in 1976 described the huge size of the school system, mentioned many of its problems, some of its successes and stated that "the voice of Alpha is desperately needed in the urban crisis because Alpha has to replenish itself from these very youngsters". He sadly noted the need for a Project Alpha because of the teenage pregnancy problem (the school system has 200 mothers under age 13) and stated that unless remedial action is taken "The Black Family is dissolving before our very eyes." The validity and irony of his remarks was underscored by the fact that many of the Brothers drove past the "homeless" Black and white men lying in the gutters and "homeless" women and children in the "shelters" as they returned to their split level homes in the suburbs. Brother Green attended Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota; has degrees from the University of Minnesota, St. Cloud State College, and earned his Doctorate of Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He has risen through the ranks from Classroom Teacher to Assistant Principal to Principal to Superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools to Chancellor of New York City Public Schools. He is quite well recompensed in accordance with the awesome responsibilities of his position. Some of his publications include: Human Relations: A Response to Racism Through Curriculum and his unpublished dissertation Human Resource Development in Schools, June 1973 Harvard Graduate School of Education. He is a trustee of the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, Carleton College, Zion Baptist Church and a Director of the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center. Brother (Dr.) Richard R. Green has a host of other professional activities and honors but he is proudest of all that he is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Page 15

ALPHA ATHLETES Brother Art Shell elected to the NFL Hall of Fame Brothers Gene Upshaw and Art Shell are once again in the same gridiron lineup. After 14 successful years side by side on the offensive line of the Oakland Raiders and a briefer stint as "line brothers" preparing to cross the sands, both will now be permanently enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame. When Brother Art Shell was elected to the National Football League's pantheon of super-stars in January, he became the sixth squad member from the Oakland Raiders heyday in the 1970s to be so honored. In that era, the Silver and Black was almost universally loved — you either loved the NFL's bad boys or you loved to hate them. More poignantly, this selection means that Brothers Art Shell and Gene Upshaw are once again in the same gridiron lineup. Brothers Shell and Upshaw anchored the Raiders' left offensive line for'14 seasons, with Upshaw at left guard and Shell lining up next to him at left tackle. Further the two were "Line Brothers" — pledging Alpha Phi Alpha via Gamma Chi Lambda Chapter in San Francisco and crossing the sands in June of 1981. While their professions keep them on opposite coasts of the continental United States, with Gene based in Washington as Executive Director of the NFL Players Association and Art in Los Angeles as Assistant Coach of the relocated Raiders, their visages will enjoy a perpetual reunion at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Brother Shell, selected in his second year of eligibility, was one of four pro standouts selected for inclusion in the Hall of Fame for 1989. The others are Terry Bradshaw and Mel Blount of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Willie Wood of the Green Bay Packers. The quartet will be inducted on August 5th. Recalling a visit to the Hall of Fame a decade ago, prior to a preseason exhibition game, Shell pulled no punches about his pleasure at being selected. "I'm estatic," he said. " I had no idea then I'd ever be in there," he told reporters. "You never think in those terms when you're playing. I was in awe, looking at busts of the greatest players in football history and reading about them. It is hallowed ground. To be included in this group is almost to much to believe.

Brother Art Shell, former Oakland Raiders terror, is among football's all-time greats. During his playing days, the 42-year-old Shell was a 6-foot-6, 300 pounder who was both an enormous physical talent and a master of the artistry of the game. An exceptional pass protector and rush blocker, he was a stalwart of the Raiders' offensive line from 1968 to 1982. He played in eight Pro Bowl games and started in 23 postseason games, including eight AFL or AFC championships and the 1977 and 1981 Super Bowls. A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Arthur L. Shell, Jr.

graduated from Maryland State College (now the University of MarylandEastern Shore) in 1968. He was drafted by the Raiders in the third round and has spent his entire creer with that franchise. He is married to the former Janice Jeter and they are the parents of two sons: Arthur III, 15, and Christopher, 13. The Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha join his family and many friends in extending a hearty congratulations on this most deserved honor to Brother Art Shell, Hall of Famer. Page 17

THE MILITARY BEAT Alpha Phi Alpha in the Land of the Morning Calm

Greetings to Alphamen everywhere from Mu Phi Lambda Chapter in Seoul, Korea, the Land of the Morning Calm. While the eyes of the world were focused on the flame of the Olympic torch at the Seoul Olympics, Mu Phi Lambda has been diligently working to keep the flame of Alpha shining brightly in the Far East. The year 1988 will long be remembered by those of us in Korea as the year when Mu Phi Lambda added immensely to its reputation of being an i n n o v a t o r a n d tireless public servant. The elected officials for the year are Aaron Andrews, President; Larry L a u d e r d a l e , Vice-President; Larry Conway, Recording Secretary and Associate Editor-to-The Sphinx; Alvin Phillips, Correspondence Secretary; Enoch Alexander, Treasurer; Donald Bullock, Dean of Pledges; Tony Jamison, Historian and Chaplain; and Kenneth Blount, Director of Education. To fully c o m p r e h e n d Mu Phi Lambda's accomplishments and gain better perspective of the challenges that Mu Phi Lambda has overcome, one must first realize that the Chapter covers a geographical area the size of Indiana with Brothers scattered along the width and breadth of the country. Secondly, the majority of Brothers remain in Korea for only one year. Therefore, extreme turbulence among the Chapter leadership, as well as, rank and file members inhibits the growth of institutional memory and makes transition from one administration to another diffi-

Mu Phi Lambda A • O •A Seoul, Korea cult. However, to the membership of Mu Phi Lambda, these are not stumbling blocks but incentives to scale to even greater heights. Mu Phi Lambda's theme over the past year has indeed been in keeping with Alpha's desire to serve and transcend. Mu Phi Lambda played a key role in organizing, planning, and participating in Black History Month Celebrations to include sponsoring a play called "A Walk through Black History." Additionally, individual Brothers volunteered to address classes in the school system on the significance of Black History Month and of the contriubutions of Black Americans. Mu Phi Lambda's support of youth activities extended to the local Cub Scout pack of which the chapter is the sole sponsor. Mu Phi Lambda's involvement with Scouting recently culminated with the Scouts and the Chapter jointly participating in a historic hike along the path of a famous Korean War battle. Service was also the watchword as Mu Phi Lambda inaugurated a series of Career Enhancement Seminars designed to give young Black leaders the benefit of the knowledge and experience gained by senior Black military leaders over their years of service. These forums were overwhelmingly well received as they gave junior leaders an opportunity to address items of shared concern and

a

the senior leadership the opportunity to mentor and impart sage advice to the military's future leaders. Whether collectively or individually, the members of Mu Phi Lambda demonstrated the spirit of personal volunteerism in the secular as well as religious realms. It goes without saying that within every facet of community life, the members of Mu Phi Lambda were actively involved. Mu Phi Lambda's year of service reached a crescendo on December 3rd when we celebrated Founders' Day with a banquet and dance that will be remembered for years to come. Following an inspiring keynote address by Brother Raymond Burden, certificates of appreciation were presented to organizations and individuals who had contributed to the unparalleled success that Mu Phi Lambda had enjoyed over the past year. The highlight of the evening came when Brother Tony Jamison was awarded the prestigious and coveted Brother of the Year Award for his unceasing dedication to the advancement of the ideals of Alpha Phi Alpha. Though separated by thousands of miles from the United States, Alphamen everywhere can be assured Mu Phi Lambda will continue to hold high the torch of Alpha Phi Alpha in the Far East. As we are looking forward to a most productive 1989, the goal of Mu Phi Lambda will remain "first of all, servants of all, we shall transcend all."

Mu Phi Lambda Chapter covers a geographical area the size of Indiana, with Brothers scattered along the width and breath of the country. Moreover, the majority of the Chapter's members remain in Korea for only one year - which inhibits institutional development and stability. However, like Alpha Men everywhere, the Brothers of Mu Phi Lambda view these facts not as stumbling blocks, but as incentives to scale to even greater heights. The Sphinx/Spring 1989

All I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be, I learned at kindergarten. In the sandbox at nursery school these are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair. Don't hit people, P u t things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things t h a t aren't yours. Say you're sorry when you h u r t somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and milk are good for you. Live a balanced life: Learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the plastic cup. The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the plastic cup — they all die. So do we. Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and sane living. Think of what a better world it would be if we all — the whole world — had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nation and other nations to always put things back where we found them and cleaned up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together. — Robert Gulghum

COMMENTARY THE TREE OF CONTINUITY: ALPHA'S DESTINY OR FATE? Barren I Solien As we approach the 21st century, the year 2006 will mark the centennial year of Alpha Phi Alpha's inception. Where is Alpha Phi Alpha headed as an organization? According to the membership profile presented at the 82nd Anniversary Convention, Alpha's fidelity is in jeopardy. The membership profile graphically depicts the trends of membership covering the last 30 years. The findings reflect that collegiate membership is declining, while alumni membership is not significant enough to maintain the stability of our organization. I was surprised to learn that the average age of an Alphaman is 51 years. Research and statistics reveal that the life expectancy of a Black male ranges from 65-70 years. If the average age of an Alphaman continues to increase to the point of eclipsing the life expectancy of Black males, then Alpha Phi Alpha's days are numbered. One finding indicated that college

brothers are not joining graduate chapters. Why don't college brothers opt to enjoy the benefits of graduate membership? As a young graduate brother, I often pose this question to college brothers. The general impres-

sion is that members of graduate chapters fail to understand the concerns of young brothers. Some of the young brothers claim that graduate c h a p t e r s are too " b u r e a u c r a t i c " . Others even think that graduate membership is a separate organization where you either have to pledge again, or receive a recommendation from a brother in that chapter. Finally, there are those who don't believe they will fit in. I believe that it is safe to say that there is a lack of continuity between the two types of memberships. Sometimes I tend to envision Alpha Phi Alpha as a tree that bears fruit. Each part of this tree (roots, trunk, branches, fruit) has a purpose. Without continuous functioning of these parts, the tree will not produce. The 50-year brothers are the roofs. They are the possessors of our rich heritage which they pass on to younger memContinued on page 22

Reflections On Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The birthday and holiday celebrations relating to the observance of KWANZAA and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are always a period of Observation and Reflection for me personally. I recall that Mr. Bill Alston and his faithful wife and partner, Lilly, used to put out a special edition of their newspaper; The Long Island Courier, for Dr. King's birthday. He even used special colors, red, black, and green for that highly prized edition; invited various community activists to share their thoughts on Dr. King's dream; and for many citizens it was a valuable collectors item. I read again my article written about a year ago stating what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. meant to me and I will practically repeat parts of it word for word because except for the emergence of the problems of "The homeless" and the AIDS crisis not much else has changed signifiThe Sphinx/Spring 1989

John P. Rice, Jr. cantly . . . "I view Martin Luther King, Jr. in three separate but inescapably interwoven dimensions—as a human being, as an American and as a Black American. As a human being he is a universal figure, there with Martin Luther, Voltaire, and Mahatma Gandhi, an intellectual giant upon the world stage. He has made a profound impact upon world history, world religions, and political thought by his successful non-violent fight to win additional civil rights and recognition for the disenfranchised not only in the south but everywhere. I view Martin Luther King, Jr. as a great American—a patriot who fought to bring reality to the lofty phrases and the various amendments of our Constitution. America

rejoiced when he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to bring equality to man and woman, Black and white, for each and every citizen of this nation. America has made his birthday a national holiday. Most important of all I share Blackness with Martin Luther King, Jr. He lived the social injustices that I have lived. He was a member of my fraternity: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. He exemplified their ideals and their "quest for excellence," Martin Luther King, Jr. means to me that I can sleep in the hotels, eat at lunch counters, go to schools, vote and hold jobs that were at one time denied to me solely on the basis of skin color. But Martin Luther King, Jr., a martyr, killed in action on April 4, 1968, would agree with the statement that "eternal struggle is the price of freedom." For us—and for minorities everywhere—the struggle continues." Page 21

bers who strengthen our foundation. The graduate brothers are symbolic of the trunk whose experience and determination keep the organization strong. The college brothers are the branches who serve as the "life blood". They serve as role models for both Black youth and their college peers. The fruits of this tree are the Black youth who are the future leaders of both Alpha Phi Alpha and the Black community. Our destiny depends on the kind of fruit that the "Alpha Tree" bears. Graduate brothers must never forget that the inception of Alpha Phi Alpha was because of the fortitude and determination of college brothers. We must remain open-minded and sensitive to their concerns. Young Black males are under severe pressure due to the effects of phenomena such as drug abuse, gang warfare, suicide

and discrimination. Now more than ever before we need to assist (not dictate to) our college brothers in meeting their endeavors. One of the keys to strengthening our m e m b e r s h i p lies in y o u n g graduate membership. They represent the "bridge" between the older graduate brothers and the college brothers because most have maintained ties with their college chapters. Young graduate brothers should "market their chapters" to college brothers, invite them to meetings and make sure that they are recognized after the order of business. Graduate brothers must realize that college brothers are the "life blood" of Alpha and bring a multitude of talents to graduate chapter programs. By their participation in national programs such as "Project Alpha" and "Boy Scouts of America", they can enlighten young men on the current trends of campus life and pre-

sent themselves as excellent role models. College brothers also add young fraternal spirit, diverse intellects and fresh ideas to graduate chapter programs. College brothers must realize that joining a graduate chapter will not only increase your realm of networking, but it also serves as a vehicle to prepare you for corporate America. Graduate chapters also provide role models and will almost certainly associate you with someone in your field of interest. As members of Alpha Phi Alpha, we must realize the importance of both college and graduate brothers and pool our resources together. This fraternity cannot survive without effective continuity between college and graduate membership. We must also realize that all members from college neophyte to 50-year brother are equally important to the life of Alpha Phi Alpha.

Brother Michael J. Barnes

llllllllllllll The brotherhood in the State of Nebraska says 'good-bye' to their S t a t e Director, C a p t a i n Brother MICHAEL J. BARNES. C a p t a i n Barnes was recently transferred from H e a d q u a r t e r s Strategic Air Command (HQ SAC), Offutt Air Force Base, N e b r a s k a to t h e S u p r e m e Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), Allied Forces S o u t h e r n (AFSOUTH) Europe, Naples City, Italy. He will be a part of selectively manned organization—North Atlanta Treaty O r g a n i z a t i o n (NATO). As Chief of Supply Support Readiness Section, Captain Barnes will have direct interface with at least five allied countries in Southern Europe: Italy, Turkey, Greece, Belgium and Luxembourg. He will be responsible for ensuring maximum logistics supply s u p p o r t is being provided to meet NATO objectives. Brother Barnes is a 1982 graduate of the University of Tuskegee, formerly Tuskegee Institute. He was initiated into the fraternity at the University of Tuskegee, Gamma Phi Chapter. After b e i n g c o m m i s s i o n e d as a Second Lieutenant, Brother Barnes was assigned to the 42nd Supply Squadron, Loring Air Force Base, Maine as the C u s t o m e r S u p p o r t Officer. In 1985, he was reassigned to the 8th Supply Squadron, Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea (ROK) as the Chief of Material Management Branch. In 1986, Brother Barnes relocated to the HQ SAC as the Chief of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) Spares Support Section. His responsibility consisted of providing

logistics s u p p l y s u p p o r t to t h e MINUTEMAN and PEACEKEEPER weapon systems—one third of the nuclear triad. His military awards includes two Air Force Commendation Medals, an Air Force Achievement Medal, and an Outstanding Unit ribbon. Brother Barnes was appointed as the State Director for Nebraska in June 1986. As State Director, Brother Barnes re-instilled a sense of professionalism and pride among the brotherhood. He led the charge to r e j u v i n a t e inactive c h a p t e r s a n d reclaiming non-financial brothers. Under his leadership, Brother Barnes spearheaded the fraternity's involvement in the Male Sexual Awareness Program and Computer Literacy Program, a joint Beta Xi Lambda and Omaha Urban League project. His state efforts to support an annual 'Kick-in-the-Can' project, a joint venture with Omaha/Lincoln Food Banks and University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL), allowed the fraternity to be recognized by state officials and the surrounding communities. His leadership is contagious. Unfortunately, the midwestern region and the State of Nebraska loss is another region's gain. Thanks for a job well done!

llllllllllllll Brother ED COLE was recently appointed Chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party, the first black to be appointed to this position anywhere in the United States. The fourth of thirteen children, Cole was raised on a farm in a corner of southwestern Mississippi. For Cole to have reached such a goal is no surprise to his friends and family; "He's always been a strong, and true leader". When Ed Cole was in the ninth grade, he lost his left leg in a sugar mill accident, his classmates sold their blood to pay for his hospital bill. Since then, Cole hasn't stopped giving back, not only to the community, but the entire state and nation. Prevented by his disability from following the good paying jobs his older brothers had working on the levees along the Mississippi River, Cole expanded his mind with the help of his Aunt, a teacher who possessed the only library in his rural community. He went on to Jackson State University, where he graduated in 1967, and became involved in the Page 23


activities of the state branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). That led to a job in Fayette, as one of the first blacks on the staff of the state Agriculture and Industry Board. The Democratic Party that Cole heads has been reinvigorated by the youthful slate of officials, headed by 39-year-old Governor Ray Mabus. "As long as we can keep the Democratic Party focused on progressive legislation and trying to help people, then, unless people vote against their own interest, we'll be successful," Brother Cole said.

Illlllllllllll Brother EDWARD D. IRVINE first black Captain, Akron Police Department, Akron, Ohio was publicly promoted before the media and a proud group composed of his family, fraternity brothers and many friends, by the Mayor of the City of Akron, Ohio. This was a very historic occasion as Brother Irvine is the first black ever to achieve that rank in Akron's history. Brother Irvine has two degrees from University of Akron and has completed sixteen hours on his graduate work at the University. He has 24 years with the Akron Police Department and has risen through the ranks to his current rank, having first been promoted to Sergeant in 1971, to Lieutenant in 1980 and now to Captain effective June of this year. He and his wife, Geneva, have been married for more than 28 years and have one son, Pierre, a recent college graduate and a candidate for pledging for Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. Brother Irvine is a shining example to black youth and he encourages them to stay in school and for those planning on a law enforcement career, to take courses in criminal justice. He also strongly advocates they learn discipline and persistence in order to attain their degree. Hats off to this brother as he has really proven that "he has transcended all" in his quest.

A true Man of Distinction that carries out the aims of our d e a r Fraternity. Brother DR. GARY L. LEROY received the 1988 Dean's Award at the Wright State University School of Medicine, Dayton, Ohio during a student recognition ceremony Page 24

It was revealed at this gala celebration that Brother LEON MILLER, Vice President of the Beta Nu Lambda Chapter in Charlotte, had been selected as the Alumni Man of the Year. Miller also serves as parlimentarian for the Association of North Carolina Alphamen (ANCA) and Cluster Coordinator for Charlotte area chapters, which include Alpha O m i c r o n ( J o h n s o n C.

The Honorable Edward Carter, Mayor of Greenville, mesmerized an appreciative audience d u r i n g t h e P u b l i c S e s s i o n ; Dr. Tyronza Richmond, Chancellor of North Carolina Central University, rendered a strikingly poignant address to those assembled for the Fraternal Luncheon; and Dr. Lionel N e w s o m , t w e n t y - s e c o n d General P r e s i d e n t of A l p h a P h i A l p h a Fraternity, and former President of Johnson C.

Illlllllllllll State Insurance Commissioner Bill Gunter's Senate campaign last week a n n o u n c e d the hiring of Brother MICHAEL G. RAILEY to head efforts to organize black voters. Railey, 23, is a former account executive at Blinder Robinson & Company Investment Bankers and a 1987 cum laude graduate of Florida A&M University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education and Office Adminstration. Railey will be contacting prominent Black Floridians in an attempt to increase statewide voter turnout and to rally support for Bill Gunter's bid The Sphinx/Spring 1989


for t h e S e n a t e s e a t v a c a t e d by Senator Lawton Chiles. G u n t e r said t h a t Railey w a s selected from a score of qualified applicants because "Mike has the enthusiasm and experience that we need to direct our 'Get Out The Vote' movement among Black voters." Railey is a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Reserve and an Army ROTC Honor Cadet. He is an active graduate member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the J.R.E. Lee No. 422 Masonic Lodge. Michael, a native of West Palm Beach, now resides in Tallahassee with his wife, Toylene, and his 10month-old daughter, Tierra. Brother Joseph Springer Brother JOSEPH SPRINGER is the Financial Secretary of Phi Lambda Chapter, Raleigh, North Carolina. He is an active member of the chapter and the Raleigh community. He makes his living as an engineer for the State of North Carolina. But he feels strongly about school volunteerism by parents and other community members. He doesn't just say this, but rather he sets an example for all to follow. Brother Springer has served as the Treasurer of the Emma Conn Elementary School PTA for the past two years, and will be the Treasurer for the 1988-89 school year as well. In addition to serving as Treasurer, Brother Springer has made class presentations dealing with social studies. He has worked with several classrooms using subject matter ranging from "customs in foreign countries" to "how engineers apply mathematical concepts". He has also served as the fundraising chairman, and oneon-one tutor. At the beginning of this school year, the Wake County Schools Superintendent stated that Wake County Schools should take an aggressive role in helping students who are not achieving their potential. He indicated that, at least initially, the program should place emphasis on young black males, the group of children who appear to be the most adversely affected. Brother Springer introduced the idea to the Phi Lambda brothers of becoming role models for the 19 third, fourth, and fifth grade students who had been identified as most likely at risk of becoming alienated in grade The Sphinx/Spring 1989

school and failing to graduate from high school. Six Brothers became volunteers for the Students-At-Risk Program; two serve as alternates. These Alpha volunteers were each assigned three or four students with which to work one day per week for about 40 minutes. On each school day, a Phi Lambda volunteer arrives at school and signs in on the PTA Volunteer Log. He then proceeds to the appropriate classroom, talks briefly with the teacher, receives the prepared instructional materials, and greets the children with whom he works. Together, they walk to their meeting place where they interact for approximately 40 minutes. During the sessions the Phi Lambda volunteers follow the basic intructional outline provided by the teacher in her lesson plans, thereby supplementing and reinforcing what has been taught in the classroom. The sessions emphasize that reading comprenhesion is essential to school success. The volunteers serve as examples of individuals (role models) who have first-hand knowledge of the fundamental connection between reading, learning, and growth. The volunteers stress that true literacy goes beyond mere reading skills: it is the love of reading for its own sake. If more time is needed during a particular session, flexibility has been incorporated into the program's framework to allow for this. Each volunteer is afforded as much discretion as possible in forging the types of relationships he feels are important. Upon the conclusion of each session,

Brother Clerance E. Vaughn the volunteer accompanies the boys back to the classroom and gives a verbal progress report to the teacher. Before leaving the campus, volunteers sign out in the Volunteer Log. The program which Brother Springer started at Emma Conn Elementary School is going well. The school administration, teachers, parents, PTA, and the "At-Risk" children feel very good about it. The benefits for the children have been enormous: increased self-esteem, less absenteeism, better work and study habits, and gains in motivation. For this, and other achievements in Phi Lambda, Brother Springer was voted the Man of Merit award for 1988, and received the Outstanding Volunteer Award from the Wake County School System - a true example of Alpha leadership.

Iota Alpha Lambda C h a p t e r at Aberdeen, Maryland elected Brother CLERANCE E. VAUGHN as the new Chapter President for 1988 and 1989 year.

Greetings from the Brothers of Epsilon Pi chapter here at Norfolk State University, in Norfolk Virginia. We are proud to announce that we are holding Alpha high. The brothers of Epsilon Pi will now like to take the opportunity to tell you of the events of the fall 1988 semester. On September 11, 1988 we held our annual "Funky Monkey" dance. The dance was a huge success, for the fraternity and an earth-shaker for the attendants. On September 29th Epsilon Pi took to " w h i t e w a s h i n g " t h e o l d e s t b u i l d i n g o n c a m p u s , t h e social science facility (better known as the "white House"). Epsilon Pi has been scraping and painting from 7 am to 5 pm everyday since the 29th of September. On October 23rd Norfolk University held its annual pageantry at Chrysler hall in Norfolk. The pageant featured queens from each department and organization. Representing the black and old gold was the beautiful and talented Miss Cynthia Williams. The brothers of Epsilon Pi are adjusting to the addition of 12 new brothers to the brotherhood. They are as follows; John Newsome III, Marcus Logan, Erwin Garcia, Arthur Jarret Jr, Victor Patterson, Anthony Jackson, Johnathen Beckett, Domonic Bearfield, Joshua Aycott, Daryl Beale, Bradford Hardy and Ronald Harris. On October 27, 1988 Homecoming show, once again the brothers proved that the grand-daddy of them all step the best. It was a great victory, because all of the brothers were first time steppers. The step show was followed by a magnificent home-coming show on Saturday October 29th. The brothers of Epsilon Pi were very instrumental with the orchestrating one of the best homecoming shows in Norfolk State University history! The Thanksgiving recess proved to be very philanthropic. All of the

brothers gathered Thanksgiving baskets from the community a n d dispersed it to three needy families within the Tidewater area. In keeping with the tradition of "Manly Deeds" the brothers took on such projects as the Adopted Grandparents at Calvary Tower nursing home and Project Runner tutorial program. The tutorial program has been in operation since 1976. The program director, Mrs. Irene Dolberry, spearheaded the program since its i n d u c t i o n . In a p p r e c i a t i o n a n d admiration of her hard work, Mrs. Dolberry received the G.W.C. humanitarian award. The award was presented at our annual Black and Gold Ball. In addition brother Lester Arnold received the "Brother of the Year" a w a r d for l e a d e r s h i p a n d i n c e s s a n t d e t e r m i n a t i o n , to be a benefactor within the fraternity and throughout the community. The brothers of Epsilon Pi chapter wish everyone a prosperous 1989. Until next report 06!

that the only limits to opportunities are those to which you defer. During another program, Brother John Slaughter who had just resigned as Chancellor of the University of Maryland at College Park to become President of Occidental College in California, discussed "Shaping the Lives of our Youth". He reminded the brothers that Benjamin Mays had said that "It is not failure but low aim that is the sin". We must encourage t h e y o u t h to p u r s u e c a r e e r s in m a t h e m a t i c s a n d sciences. Each month the brothers anxiously wait for the next meeting in anticipation of the contribution of the Program Committee. During the June meeting, brothers were heard questioning the fact that there was sand on the floor of our meeting place at Howard University. Finally, Brother Lee A. Tyler, Dean of Pledges theorized that the sand was from t h e ten (10) m e n w h o h a d completed their history assignments, successfully passed all examinations, performed several community projects and had been initiated into A l p h a Phi Alpha at Mu L a m b d a Chapter. These neophyte brothers are Leonard Jack, W. Frank Williams, Michael Briley, Richard Ammons, Ishia C h a p m a n , Thomas Gaither, Allen H o r t o n , George J o h n s o n , Hiram Brett and Elmer Davis. Brother Tyler assures that any brother visiting the chapter in the future will not need to be concerned about a sandy floor. The neophytes are working hard for Alpha and the sand is no longer on their shoes; but, Alpha is in their hearts. In continuation of a rich tradition, Brother Frederick Laney informed the Chapter that the Henry Arthur Callis Scholarship Foundation had a w a r d e d s e v e n (7) s c h o l a r s h i p s totaling $14,000.00. Over the past three years, the Foundation has awarded over $36,000.00 to deserving students in the District of Columbia. O n e of the sources of financial support for the Henry Arthur Callis Scholarship Foundation is the annual Mu Lambda Spring Dance. In May of 1988, over 400 b r o t h e r s , w i v e s , friends and supporters gathered in Black Tie at the plush Omni Shoreham Hotel in Northwest Washington for an evening of dancing and cheer. While this was indeed a festive and g l a m o r o u s occasion, in t h e t r u e The Sphinx/Spring 1989

Alpha spirit, all present were treated to an educationally uplifting presentation. Chapter Historian, Brother J. Leon Langhorne, and the neophyte brothers assembled and presented a c o m p r e h e n s i v e display of A l p h a memorabilia covering the period of 1907 to 1988. This ten table collection of e y e - c a t c h i n g h i s t o r i c a l i t e m s included pictures, trophies, awards, articles and other significant Alpha artifacts which attracted intensive attention. Alpha's outstanding history in the nation's capital presented an enjoyable diversion which made a l a s t i n g i m p r e s s i o n o n all w h o attended. The m a n t l e of l e a d e r s h i p h a s passed to Brother LeRoy Lowery, III o u r n e w c h a p t e r P r e s i d e n t . The hand-off was smooth and Brother Lowry hit the ground, sprinting for the "gold". A newsletter has begun, project Alpha is on track, efforts to work with the Boy Scouts are under way, a monthly Leadership Developm e n t Institute Program has been initiated and College Brothers from Beta and Omicron Omicron Chapters h a v e c o n t i n u e d t h e t r a d i t i o n of attending the chapter meetings and reporting their activities.

Leon Langhorne, Historian. To kick off the Christmas season, Brother Dr. James Cheek, President of Howard University, and Mrs. Cheek invited the brothers to hold their December meeting at their home. Following a lavish meal, surpassed o n l y by t h e b e a u t y , c h a r m a n d finesse of our hostess, Dr. Cheek addressed the brothers. In his brief but timely message, Dr. C h e e k p a i n t e d a p i c t u r e of a n America where 27% of the men in the military are Black thus subjecting us, as a people, to disproportionally higher loss in the event of a war. An America where 48% of the men in jail are Black. An America where only 6% of Black men are in college; and yet, the irony of this America is that it is c h e a p e r to k e e p a m a n at

Howard University than it is to keep him in jail. Brother Cheek challenged us, as we stood surrounded in luxury, to c o n s i d e r this America a n d continue to press on and to dare to dream. Alpha Phi Alpha at Mu Lambda Chapter is continuing the legacy of excellence. - Byron J. Grayson, Sr.

The brothers of Alpha Tau Chapter at The University of Akron extend heartfelt greetings throughout the land of Alpha. In starting the new school year of 1988-89 the brothers here are trying to get more positive exposure for the fraternity both on campus and the community. We s t a r t e d off just before t h e school year began in the community where we were active participants in the United Negro College Fund's fundraiser here in Akron. The first few weeks into the school year we were helping out the United Way in their annual Kick-Off Drive in which we passed out literature and other promotional items. On campus at The University of Akron: Sept. 26-29th the brothers held a voter registration drive in which we registered over one h u n d r e d s t u d e n t s to v o t e . T h e following week we held our annual Rock-Thon, w h e r e w e rock in a rocking chair for 24 h o u r s a day outside the student center to raise money for a worthy cause. This year we rocked for The Reginald Vincent White Scholarship Fund, a scholarship fund set u p in honor of a deceased Alpha Tau brother. The brothers also were actively involved in a panel discussion sponsored by The Black Cultural Center here at A k r o n U., in w h i c h a g r a d u a t e brother, Walter Evege is the acting director, on the role of black student leaders on campus. The discussion was organized by brother Jimmie Thomas II, brother Richard Bennett was the Master of Ceremonies, and Page 29


brother Keith Brown, president of Alpha Tau, sat on the panel. We also held three dances, one together with the Alpha Angles where we collected over 100 canned goods which we d o n a t e d to The Salvation Army's hunger center. The brothers of Alpha Tau Chapter hopes everyone continues to uphold t h e n a m e of A l p h a a n d s a y to everyone that whenever something goes wrong don't find fault, find a remedy! - Wil Jenkins

California state u Pi Kappa Dispels Western Region Stigma Greetings from Alpha West! We the brothers of Pi Kappa Chapter, California State University, Northridge, would like to seize this opportunity to let brothers all across the nation know that the west is alive! The Western Region has carried a stigma for some time now. This stigma is simply that there seems to be very few active brothers or chapters within the Western Region. The time has come for that myth to be dispelled. As one of the larger chapters on the west coast, we felt it high time to enlighten the brotherhood on some of our activities, past and present, in order that you might gain a feel for the participation of brothers within our chapter, as well as chapters within our region. Key #0739 denotes one of the youngest chapters in the fraternity, as well as one of the most active and progressive. Pi Kappa (PK) was founded on September 7, 1984, by thirteen diligent and persistent brothers from UCLA, UC Irvine, and USC: Jimmy Chambers, Carl Luisville, Wil Bryant, Todd Henry, Desmond Gumbs, George Griffin, James Keys, Stanley Germany, Vince Zeabo, Craig Little, Lance Roberts, Jeffrey Hudson, and Usher Barner. Since that time, PK has distinguished itself as a producer of scholars, leaders, and the epitome of true Alpha Men. This is no small task considering the fact that for so long we were literally in the shadows of such illustrious chapters as Gamma Xi, UCLA (Chapter of the Year 1987), and Alpha Delta, USC (The first college chapter in California). With the collective effort of brothers in Pi Kappa, and surrounding chapters, PK began to form an identity of it's own. Pi Kappa Chapter was involved into somewhat of a breeding ground for leaders within and without. Since it's very first year in existence, 1984, PK has been the home of the Western Region A.V.P This started with James Key (1984-95, 1985-86), Ryan Williams (1986-87), and Vernon D. Jackson The Sphinx/Spring 1989

Brothers of Pi Kappa on the rise as one of the largest chapters in the west.

(1987-88). Also on a national level, PK has made a name for itself as one of the prime "Stepping Chapters" in Alpha, winning the Western Region Step Show (1986, and 1987), and winning the National Step Contest at the General Convention held in San Francisco, Summer 1987. Most of this dazzling footwork can also be seen in the documentary film based on the stepping brothers of Pi Kappa called "Ain't no half Stepping," also up for an Academy award nomination for best documentary. PK also breeds scholars, boasting an outstanding graduation rate among the brothers who have been in the chapter. As one of the leading

chapters with extremely talented orators, you have probably already heard the dynamic views of Brother James Key (1st runner-up National Oratorical Contest 1985, and competed also on a national level in 1986), Brother Vernon D. Jackson (2nd runner-up National Oratorical Contest 1987, and 1st runner-up National Oratorical Contest 1988). So as you see the Western Region is definitely on the rise and still alive. We the Brothers of PK wish to challenge all college chapters to come out this summer and support the National Convention because we can guarantee we will be there in full force!!!

Brother KENNETH FREDERICK SMITH, a prominent Oakland attorney and community leader died last Thursday. He was 78. Brother Smith was born M a r c h 2 9 , 1910 in S a i n t Joseph, Missouri to the union of Joseph S. Smith, Sr. and C h a r i t y E l i z a b e t h Booker S m i t h . He was g r a d u a t e d from public school in his hometown, attended Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri for one year, and received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Kansas in Lawrence. He began his law studies at his alma mater and completed his law training at San Francisco Law School. In 1937, he went to Portland, Oregon as a waiter on the S o u t h e r n Pacific Railroad to earn m o n e y to further his education. His move to the West Coast was to have been temporary, but shortly thereafter he met Julia Blanchard, and they were married on August 5, 1939. He became the first black employed as race relations representative of the Oregon State Department of Employment and War Manpower. He was the Executive Director of the branch Y.M.C.A. and Executive Director of the Y.M.C. A.-U.S.O. of Portland. Julia and Ken also operated a private business concession in Vanport City, Oregon, an autonomous housing project which was the largest project in the country at that time. The Smiths moved to San Francisco in 1948, in search of greener pastures. They formed the Smith-Blanhard Advertising and Public Relations Agency and one of their proudest accomplishments was the public relations aspect in the formation of the Trans-Bay Federal Savings and Loan Association, the first black savings and loan institution in Northern California. Their firm was also responsible for the first United Negro College Fund drive in the Bay Area. Mr. Smith was recruited by the San Francisco Urban League as their field secretary. In 1960 he was appointed Executive Director of the Bay Area Urban League, a position he held until his retirement from that organization in 1965.

Page 41


During the time Mr. Smith worked with the Urban League he was attending law school also. His tenacity in pursuing his first love of the law resulted in his passing the California Bar and his practice of law in the Bay Area. He was proud of the high percentage of cases in which he was successful. It was during the latter part of his practice that he was appointed to the State Narcotic Addict Evaluation Authority and the State Job Training Coordinating Council. A few of his affiliations were Life member N.A.A.C.P.; Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity; American Bar Association; Charles H o u s t o n Bar Association; St. Johns Episcopal C h u r ! of Montclair; California State Job Training Coordinating Count'' California State Conference of Apprenticeship; Redelopment Agency of the City of Oakland; and Y.M.C. A. of San Francisco. He is survived by his wife, of 49 years, Julia; his sister, Ann Tucker, of Chicago; a niece, Gwendolyn Nicholas, of San Francisco; a nephew, George Mills, Jr., of Portland; his wife's family which he considered his own; and a host of friends.

We always relinquish with great reluctance that with which we are most familiar. Whether it is the son w h o leaves the shelter of home to become a father in a home of his own, or the high school s t u d e n t w h o moves on to college and into the unknown complexities of the world of work; whether we move to new jobs or new towns, we are u s u a l l y s u s t a i n e d by e x p e r i e n c e s rooted in the familiar. It is not easy to put distance between the familiar and the unknown. When we attempt to do so, we tend to succeed when our reach is anchored by the love and support of family and friends. With the death of Brother NATHANIEL ALLEN SWEETS, Sr., the St. Louis community lost a man for all seasons. He feared neither the known nor the unknown. He accepted life's syncopated rhythms, and the beat of a different drummer didn't bother him at all. To those he left behind he bequeathed a wonderful legacy. Although we might not always have been aware of it, his courage, his energy, his spirit and his strength nurtured a widely extended family. That family included not only his wife, sons, daughter and grandchildren; it included his "boys" on the St. Louis football and baseball teams, and his "boys" on Lincoln University's football team. It also included his Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity brothers and the Lincoln University Alumni Association. It certainly included the staff of his beloved St. Louis American. He was a political animal in the kindest sense of the word. His facility for finesse was legend as well—whether in a friendly game of poker, or in the rotunda of City Hall or the halls of the Missouri state legislature. He often got what he wanted, but always refused to gloat. And so while life w i t h o u t him is yet another of those unsettling unknowns, we owe it to his memory to tackle the unknown in the best Sweets tradition: head on. His family and friends gathered at St. James AME Church last Friday not so much to mourn his death as to celebrate his life. It was a celebration he would have enjoyed. Not only were family members drawn from north, south, east and west; friends came from near and far as well. T h e S p h i n x / S p r i n g 1989


And with Robert McFerrin's spirited rendition of "Ride On, King Jesus," St. Louisans bid a fond farewell to the last of a dying breed: a genuine Renaissance man. He had a strong commitment to St. Louis in general and its black community in particular. He often said we should all try to leave this place better than we found it. He certainly tried.

S

an Antonio. The Home of the Alamo. You knew that already. But we're also the place where chili was invented. The birthplace of the U. S. Air Force, The location for the first movie ever to win an Oscar for Best Motion Picture. And much more you never even dreamed of. Small wonder Will Rogers dubbed San Antonio "one of America's four unique cities." We're the.tenth largest city in the United States, but don't let that mislead you. Because what San Antonio offers extends far beyond the luxuries and conveniences you'd expect from a progressive metropolitan center. We're a city whose past is every bit as alive as its present. A rich tapestry of sights, sounds and tastes, woven from a diversity of cultures and histories, with a texture unlike any other. Along the banks of the picturesque San Antonio River and all throughout our city, you'll find a spirit of fun and excitement here, constantly inviting you to explore. Discover. Enjoy. All at your own pace. You may come and see the Alamo. But when you leave, we guarantee that there will be more, much more, that you will remember.
