During these two years, there have been many influential and significant factors learned that will always be remembered and respected throughout our successful tour of life. It is hoped that this yearbook will bring back all the pleasant memories of our Alma Mater. Many interesting and happy hours have been spent in compiling this yearbook. It is with deep gratitude that I extend many thanks to you, the members of the Staff, Faculty Advisors, and Student Body for your splendid cooperation and guidance. It was through your hard efforts and work that this 1964 BLEATER was completed. So, in the same words that you have read or heard over and over again, but yet they never grow old - " Thank You. " There is a time in the life of every man that a decision must be made. This is our time to make a decision - whether It be right or wrong, a decision must be made. We must now put to good use the training we have received from our parents, and from our instructors here at the " Mobile Center. " What is your decision? If there were only one message I could give you in making your decision, it would be this: " Put your hand in the hand of God and go forward, it is better than a light and safer than a known way. " Yvonne Kennedy Editor-in-Chief Une ssoc a e Coi ors jRessaoe WILLIAM JAMES EVA SMITH Throughout man ' s life he has striven for perfection. We are aware of the fact that this is a goal that is seldom, if ever, reached. However, we, the co-editors, along with the editor and the entire Yearbook staff have uied to publish a book that would exhibit some indica- tion that we have been working in that direction. We hope that as you explore your ' 64 Blearer from year to year, that you will find en- closed, a treasure of pleasant memories that are lingering behind at our dear Alma Mater,. Alabama State College, Mobile Center. At this time, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to our Director, Sponsors, Editor, Staff, Faculty and Student Body for their enthusiastic co-operation in helping make this edition of the BLEATER a success.

As a member of the first graduating class of Alabama State College Branch, you were one of those who set the pace of tradition for this great institution. To Mr. Frank Miller, for the intense interest he has shown in the intellectual and social development of the students, his patience, guidance, and understanding, we dedicate this is- sue of the BLEATER. dn JKemoriam MRS. LUCILLE DALLAS MRS. SARAH HARRIS A shadow has been cast over our memory, for we are without two of our dearest friends. To you, Mesdames Dallas and Harris, there is a feeling of almost insufficiency to speak of how faithful and well you served. We feel the silence of your absence as we move along our way. We miss you both sincerely but we know that God knows best. " Death ' s but a path that must be uod, If man would evej pass to God. " - Parnell ADMINISTRATION CPresicfenPs JKessa e Around you these days are the noises of progress. Indeed, these noises of construction equipment and the mingled voices of workmen are truly sweet music. They are symbolic of the better tomorrow for the program of quality education at the Mobile Center, Yesterday ' s hopes for a physical plant in Mobile will become a reality in 1964, We are grateful for the abiding faith you have in your College. Truly, you at the Cen- ter have set an example of nobility, dignity, and understanding for all of our students. In- deed, you have inspired me to work for more noble objectives for what is soon to be your Al- ma Mater, Together, we must mutually pledge our support and loyalty that our beloved Col- lege may take its place among the truly great institutions of our nation. Levi Watklns, President Une 7)irecior s Jliessaqe One no longer sleeps for twenty years before he becomes like " Ol ' Rip. " He merely closes his eyes and mind for a few minutes or even a few seconds. Father Time is no longer and old man carrying the scythe; he wears the garb of an astronaut. Within the last few months many changes have been wrought within the nation, the state, and within the framework of our little college family. To many of us, they are mean- ingless moves. But to others, they are symbols of a " new look for Father Time. " Can one survive in a world where man can travel at the rate of two thousand miles per hour if he moves with the velocity of " 01 ' Father Time " ? The answer to this question is obvious. Opportunities are available for any person who is willing to move, to think and to execute with precision and facility. As Director of the Alabama State CoUege - Mobile Center, my message to you is this: One must follow the course of growth; he must not forget what the good old days were like; but, of necessity, he must reach out and hitch his mind to the cloak of the astronaut, for to- day ' s story does not end with the usual lines from the Merlin Cycle - " and they lived hap- pily ever after.

" One can see in those six little words the summary of human achievement, and an everlasting inspiration to the future races of men. From Booker T. Washington to Martin Luther King, Jr. , every forward step taken by mankind through revolving centuries, every advance by humanity toward the ultimate goal, has been led by some valiant dreamer whose eyes were fixed upon the dawn. Frederick Douglas pinned his eyes on the dawn of a new day. Nat Turner, the mystic, led a bloody slave revolt. Harriet Tubman helped three hundred slaves escape from the South. Each looked beyond, and into the future. No matter what one ' s endeavor may be, he should not give up his faith in God. One ' s duty to God is to make of himself the most perfect product of divine incarnation that he can become. This is possible only through the pursuit of worthy ideals. Strive to be successful and you will never be a failure, but the moment you strive to be a failure you will surely be successful. Winfred M.

Major: English Minor: Social Studies YOUNG, LILLIE JUANITA Major: Elementary Education C) as,s 7 s ( orL y The Sophomore Class of 1963-64 entered the Alabama State College Branch in the fall of 1962 all ready and anxious to enter upon college heights. Our first week here was one filled with excitement; for it began our Orientation period. As a part of Orientation the Freshman and the Sophomore Classes were enter- tained at a " Get Acquainted Social, " sponsored by the Student Organization. We entered this period as inexperienced " Crabs " and ended as full fledged members of the Alabama State College. After Orientation we settled down to begin college life. We elected officers to lead our Freshman Class for the 1963-64 term. They were: President, Nicholas L. Antone; Vice-President, William James; Recording Secretary, Fannie Brooks; Financial Secretary, Theresa Carraway; Treasurer, Thomas Figures; and Business Manager, Alfred Stokes. During our Freshman year we had an active part in many activities. We had six Freshmen on the Basketball Team; Miss Varsity, Yvonne Joyner; Betty Montgomery represented the Mobile Branch at the Cramton Bowl game at Montgomery; and many other activities were greatly filled with Freshman participants. Other events that stood out during our Freshman year were: The Christmas Party, which was sponsored by the Freshman Class, President ' s Ball, Game Nighu, Spring Social, and the Spring Picnic. Our Freshman year soon ended and we reached another rung on the college ladder in September of 1963. We then enrolled as Sophomores. We elected to lead the Sophomore Class of 1963-64 the following: President, Thomas Figures; Vice-President, Kiah Edwards; Recording Secretary, Fannie Brooks; Financial Secretary, Daisy Roberts; Treasurer, Yvonne Joyner; and Business Manager, Willian James. During our Sophomore year, January of 1964, work was begun on the new Classroom- Administrative building. A ground breaking ceremony was held January 13, with the president of the college. Dr. Levi Watkins shoveling the first spade of dirt. Thereby officially beginning the construction of the " new " Alabama State College, Mobile Center. Although the Sophomore Class of 1963-64 will not be able to enjoy the facilities of the new building, we are very proud to know that construction of the building was be- gun during our time here. Now, graduation time draws nigh bringing with it mixed feelings. We, the members of the Sophomore Class, will never forget oiu- two years at the Mobile Center of Alabama State College for it was here that we received the foundations for our future. Marilyn A. Showers C)fass J oem A SOON FAREWELL For soon, September had Twice turned to May; for soon, Mellow memories had turned gray, When soon, Sadly, So somberly. We had to say, " Farewell, Farewell! to thee, school we had lovej So well, " To dear Alma mater. Who gave to souls so pure, The alms of lore. Harris Ray Wilhite, Jr. Class Poet Glass J ropnecu In 1516, Sir Thomas More presented the literary world with his Utopia. In this work, More gave an imaginative description of an ideal commonwealth based upon the common possession of goods; but, here in 1964, the Sophomore class of the Alabama State College shall present an ideal society with its common possession of goods being success and happiness. This Society is not a mere dream or an impractical fancy, but, a genuine reality. Government is an essential element of any society. President William James and First Lady Elouise Balams James have just congratulated Alfred Stokes, Ambassador to the United Nations, who has received the Nobel Peace Prize for his expert arbitration between Russia and the United States. Senators Nicholas Antone and Theresa Carraway have given dynamic speeches on the topic, " Race and Marriage. " To protect these brilliant senators from well- wishing mobs, policemen Johnny Burden and Robert Williams were posted at their sides. Lawyers Melvin Ross and Horace Altice were paid one million dollars each to protect the interests of multi-millionaire Kennard Thompson. Robert Howard, Speaker of the House, has received the Democratic Vice-Pres- idential nomination for the 1988 term. Religion is an intricate part of life in this society. Evangelist Winfred Hope has just returned from a world-wide preaching tour. Reverend Thomas Sumpter and his congregation have built an ultra-modern church that extends from one section of town to the other. Reverend Sumpter has employed Mildred Dunning and Mrs. Dorothy Bivens as marriage counselors. In addition to religious education, the members of this near-perfect society have set up an excellent school that ranges from kindergarten to graduate school. This school is the first of its kind. It was designed by architects ' Wilfred Sewer, Edward Robinson and James Turner. The construction contract was awarded to the Sims and Sheperd Contractors, Incorporated. The school has been named the Glenn Educational and Vocational Center in honor of Miss Hermenia Glenn who had made outstanding contributions for the benefit of cul- turally deprived children. Principal Wilfred Sullivan has employed Barbara Howard and Bemadette Portis as head of the Elementary Department, Naomi Maryland as head of the Mathematics Department and Jo Ann Brown as head of the Business Department. McArthur Buford is coach of the football team, John Cowan, coach of the basketball team, and Roy Powe, coach of the base- ball team. Numerous members have ventured into the professional world. Kiah Edwards and Henry Kemp are renowned pharmacists while Clarence Wells and Joyce James are leading physicians. Daisy Roberts and Eva Smith are historical ad- visors to the President. Misses Fannie Brooks, Yvonne Kennedy, Willa Pollard and Floreda White have set up a huge Language Laboratory. They are profici- ent in twenty-three languages. Miss Annie Brooks is an Interpreter of Russian for the United Nations. Elizabeth Jackson is private secretary for Attorney Gen- eral, Pumell McConnell. Marcella Jackson and Mary Thomas are business accountants for Mr. Thomas Figures, president of the local bank of which Miss Johnnie R. Robinson is Financial Consultant. Harris Wilhite has been voted " Editor of the Year " and Yvonne Joyner, " Woman of the Year. " This society has taken the necessary precautions to take excellent care of its businesses. Now they feel it is time for a little pleasure. Sallie McGowin and Virginia Travis are rendering their concerts at the Emma Lathan Opera House, accompanied by Mary Brazelton and Winston Conner. James Riley has done a magnificent rendition of the " Mona Lisa, " for which he has won fame. Mary Frances Wilson, Alice Marie Hall and Dorothy Powe are outstanding models. Their clothes are designed by Miss Viletta Lucas. Willie Frank Davis is the leading tailor. He has just completed a three-piece suit for Governor William Campbell. The unique achievements of this society are infinite. It is the fondest de- sire of all those who share in it ' s operations that one day ail those who live now and all those who come after shall become members. May the Success and Happiness of this society remain imperishable goods.

All primary institutions are born, grow, develop and later are destroy- ed because of an " idea or ideas. " These idea or ideas become crystallized and sanctioned by the serviced group, therefore, they become established. Another empirical observation which is put frequently in the forefront in making explan- ations about the establishment of institutions is the theory that they come into being because of a " felt " need on the part of those whom they are to serve. Both of the above observations could very well fit into the pattern for the es- tablishment of the permanent Mobile Branch in 1936. It was in September, 1936, that the Mobile Branch of the Alabama State Teachers College at Montgomery was bom as a full-time two-year institution. The program provided for prospective elementary teachers. There was a two- year general education program set up for those whose desire was the " Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education. " Persons in this particular curricu- lum were awarded the two-year general certificate. During this time, the college was housed in the Old University of Alabama Medical School at Saint Anthony and Lawrence Streets. In 1942, the school board found it necessary to claim its facilities for the expanding school population. Consequently, the Mobile Branch College was asked to vacate the wing which it occupied. Fortunately, a site was procured from the Voluntary Fire-fighters Society 11. There was no direct appropria- tion meted out for the Branch College by the State of Alabama, therefore, a loan of $2, 000 was made to the college by two very benevolent citizens, Mr. W. H. Madison and his wife, Mrs. Pearl Johnson Madison. Through this method the State College came into possession of its fint parcel of property in Mobile, Alabama. The new Alabama State College from which the Mobile Branch was con- ceived and born may be said to have had one major function and two associa- ted functions. At that time the major function was that of preparing prospec- tive Negro teachers. One associated function was that of providing the alter- native opportunity for four-year undergraduate pre-professional training for those Negro students who do not contemplate entrance into the teaching pro- fession but rather look forward to professional training and to life careers in such fields as medicine, dentistry, law, theolog y, social work, library science and others. A second associated function is that of providing the most service- able " lower college " training for that appreciable number of Negro high school graduates who would do only one or two years in college, before going into some life ' s occupation. These preceding facts give more support to the philosophy which stands fully behind the establishment of the Branch school at Mobile. f NEW BUILDING IN PROGRESS Member of " Center ' s " First Graduating Class Gives its History.
