He stands erect, though tempests round him crash Though thunder bursts and billo ws surge and roll, He laughs andforges on, while lightnings flash 14 Irnpassive as a Sphinx, he stares ahead- F oresees new empires rise and old one fallg While Caste-mad nations' lastfor blood to shed, He sees God's hnger writing on the wall With soul awakened, wise and strong he stands, Holding his destiny within his hands. -James McCall J -J .

Lawson "Fisk's concem is to prepare our students for life in the world and not to seek to reg- ulate their lives but rather direct them in making proper choices in this period of their educational developments." K , Executive Assistant to the President Dr. Nebraska Mays "I enjoy direct contact with students. I think an administrator should be in involved in the teaching process for without this direct contact one may perhaps lose sight of the goals and aspirations of students." I9 The dean of women's office is concerned with both the inner and outer attitudes and feelings of its women students. lt is vital to strive to implement academic life and to aid each woman in developing as a lady of sensitive charm who builds within herself a stable foun- dation and a deep rooted conviction of the meaning of life. Supplementing this, emphasis is placed on the idea of women in the world today who are involved with great commit- ments in working with others while helping them to realize what they will face in a world that is growing in adventure and complexity. Dean 0'Dessa Shipley Dean of Women The challenge of student involvement in the affairs of Fisk University is one of encouraging students to devote a portion of their time and talents to the essential task of redefining the goals and purposes ofthe institution. In meeting this challenge, we recognize, in both word and deed, that students are able and entitled to participate as responsible partners in the process of establishing the policies and procedures of their college. Dean Reginald Hughes Dean of Student Affairs - J? Deans pass pronouncements that affect the lives of students Representing Fisk at various educational events, planning the curriculum, and teaching are a few of the duties and re- sponsibilities of Dean Redd. In fulfilling these, he has made progress in recogniz- ing the goal of high academic standing for Fisk and has kept the student body aware of the true purpose of college life by his stress on academic excellence.

The faculty continually reminds students that groups are made of individuals and that they are not without hearts. They emphasize to the students the fact' that no one can say that there is no room for dreams in science. Everyday contact with people affords students with exciting living dreams. Psychology Students ask cyclical questions which are caught in the search for unity ofdesign It is here in this department that physics is free to per- meate theystrata of process in discovering the dynamics of emotion. Cyclical questions are caught in the search for unity of design, blown to a realism of reason by faculty members, and vested in a purpose for propagation. 1 1? we Dr. Stanley Samkange , r.-..

Its importance lies not in the accumulation of names, dates, and facts, but rather in the application of these events to contemporary society. As history repeats itself, ancient arguments become modern crises and diplomats find that the tact that once sheathed swords can also disarm atomic bombs. Dedicated to the task of insuring that the Fisk student knows the major events ofthe past and present, and to the presenta- tion of a few theories on what might happen in the future, the note wielding staff of the department does not allow a single detail to slip by without thorough explanation and discussion. Our History Department has made it its business to continue the elTort of maintaining the high standards previously set in the proper presentation of material in a day and age where the daily newspaper becomes a textbook. In addition, the department has placed more and more emphasis on active student participa- tion in class, thus providing an interesting incite on how the Fisk student regards the undertakings of our nation. Success is the only end product of such strenuous effort and a wish for its continuation to the staffis made by all. Dr. Tamb' Tollenron 39 Physical activity stimulates the mind to clearer thinking and Greater Capacity The broad objective of the Department of Health and Physical Education is to con- tribute to the total educative experiences of the student at Fisk University. Thus, specific experiences are provided which are geared toward education through the physi- cal rather than education of the physical. With this underlying philosophy, emphasis is placed upon developing the individual intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually, as well as physically. The phi- losophy of education through the physical rather than of the physical demands a pro- gram which has a wide range of activities and which is rich in opportunity for self- expression. Mrs. Susie Cobbs Mr. H. B. Thompson Chairman i 'if Coach Marlin 's gymnastics class. Mr. James L. Smith Mr. John C. Martin In addition to a broad curriculum, the Physical Education and Health Department fosters a diversified intramural program, and a physical education club for majors.

W X g i ' if i if V , f L jf X ,D li i Mrs. Mabel Love ,f Y Dr. Charles Miller Today, the business world looks for a college education in its members. The mere specialist, the master of one skill or subject, does not make for progressive civilization and culture. Man as a social being must have a broad vision and wide experience. He must be familiar with many Helds ofthought and interest. This rounded culture is what the Economics and Business Administra- tion ' Departments strive to obtain. Through selected courses, the investigating mind is led into various fields of systematized knowledge. Correlation of these courses makes for unity and thoroughness, for mastery in one's chosen Held. Within the program in Business Administration and Economics are practiced the basic entities, namely, accounting, finance, marketing, and management. Moreover, the department does not stop its service to the student in training. lt also has an excellentjob placement where- by leaders in the business world may come and interview prospective employees.

It has three primary functions: to provide basic courses in general education for students of the college, to provide students with a broad cultural training in the language, and to provide for specialized training in the professional fields ,of French, Span- ish and German. ln , 'mg Wgg, gf, U , ',aag,1':1, r' ,wu1sQir, 5 ifL'wf.'

Mn Robe,-,Johns Mrs. JoAnn Church Learning is a fragile and imperceptible experience, yet it stands as the foundation of the entire college structure. The responsibility of generating this experience belongs chiefly to the administration and faculty. The administration develops the attitudes which must exist if learning is to grow. They are responsible not only to the faculty and the students, but also to the whole superstructure which frames our college. The faculty is directly responsible for the actual learning experience. Within the classroom, each member of the faculty should personally involve himself in the intellectual development of every student. Because of the unique atmosphere which exists at Fisk, the learning process is not limited to the classroom but branches out to reach all aspects of college life. 45 Master, let me labor through the day Quietly, yet with clear, unswerving aim. Teach me indijference to praise or blame, So long as with goodconscience I can say I sought to fnd the straight and narrow way. Ifsuddenly thehres ofpassion flame About me, let me calm them with that Name Which in my heart I never could betray And when the lightfails, and untroubled sleep Has clothed my senses with its sweet reward, O give my spirit then a large increase Ofstrength for one more day ofstrivingg keep The gateway ofmy dreamsg and wake me, Lord To walk again the manly paths of-peace. ffSi1vera Seniors Adams, Melba Karen Biology Toledo, Ohio Adrine, Ronald Bruce History Shaker Heights, Ohio Allison, Stephen Renet History Chicago, Illinois Anderson, Addie Laurita Sociology Detroit, Michigan Adams, Brenda Anne Speech and 'Drama Austin, Texas Adams, Gloria M.

The Herald is the medium of expression for the literary minded students of Fisk. It is the aim of the Herald to encourage students to exercise their ability and pre- sent their work for constructive criticism and f or possible publication. The great literary tradition of literary excellence as well as the individual urge to excell and succeed in the keen competition of a well organized profession is the in- spiration of the Herald Staff. To them, literature of the past and of today is not entirely the artless product of the masses but rather a vivid reflection and the guid- ing mentor of an advancing civilization, achieved by a large body of trained as well as gifted writers. lOl SNEA ,-.1 SEATED from left to right: Octavia Pierce, Vernice Hall, Sandra Foster, Pat Tomlin, Brenda Partridge, Elissa Shanks, Madelaine Gordon, STANIDNG: Carol Covington, Charles While, Anesl Schell, Wvnette Forde, Carol Rawls, -. ,.., 3: Dorothy Radford, Jean Maclin, Sandra Dodd, Cheryl Edgenton, Beverly Moody, Shervl Benning, Yvonne Blanchard, Leonus Batiste, Dr. Juan-A dvisor.

Taking for its ideals "Many deeds, scholarship and love for all mankind", Alphas seek a well-rounded life through the varied activities they endeavor.

Eta Psi Chapter International and interracial, the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity today in all its splendors and eminence, is a manifestation of the profound faith that our founders, Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper, Frank Coleman, and Ernest E. Just, nurtured during the birth and early growth of this organization. For those four men who dared to dream, that dream has become a living reality over 10,000 times for as many Omega men. On November 17, 1911, sacred in the heart of all Omega men the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded at Howard University. It was dedicated to the proposition that men would increase their vision and their willingness to serve their communities, if they could be united with like ideals.

Quarterback Don Folden tossed for six touchdown passes for one mark and gained 368 yards through the air for another. While the 75 points scored erased the old school scoring record, Fisk University Bulldogs pulled off a first in the last ten years, as they won their first home opener 9-7. The first quarter the Bulldogs battled to a 0-0 tie. The second quar- ter, the Bulldogs went under as Livingstone intercepted a F olden pass and went on to score the TD and PAT to take a 7-0 lead. In the third quarter cornerback Cornelius Craig intercepted a pass to set up a 21 yard field goal kicked by William Wright, after the Fisk offense couldn't score with the score 7-3. In the fourth quarter Craig Edwards, a 275 lbs. lineman recovered a Livingstone fum- bleg Fisk picking up the tempo to down the field 50 yards where Fisk's golden boy-James Watkins-caught a Don Folden pass and danced 32 yards for the first TD of the 1969 season and the lead in the game 9-7.

Fisk Bulldogs battled Alabama A8LM to a 68-68 tie in regulation play, then flexed their muscles to win 83-76 in overtime. The Bulldogs senior captain, Victor Lesley, sent the game into overtime when he hit a jump shot with 18 seconds left. Once in overtime it was all Fisk as the Bulldogs outscored Alabama A8LM 15-8. Fisk was paced by Lesley with 20 points, Richard Harris and Cornell Brantley followed with 16 and Kindell tallied 14 to round out the Bulldog attack. Fisk now stands 8-10 for the season with hopes of reaching the 500 mark for the year. Fisk downs Alabama ASLM l82 Fisk stops South Carolina 98-96 South Carolina came to Fisk with an unblemished rec- ord, I4-0. The Ben Jobe-coached team fwho once played for coach H. B. Thompsonl led at half time 50- 44. Fisk bounced back from a poor lst half to squeak by 98-96. Kindell Stephens who led the Bulldog attack at S.C. State with 25 pts. was having a cold night. Coach Thompson inserted Senior Nathaniel Perry from Memphis in the forward position. The move proved promising and rewarding as the 6'4' forward center gave Fisk 12 big points in the closing minutes of the game, looking like Rick Berry, he hit on 4 long 20-25 ft. shots that maintained the 2nd half lead mostly provided by Robert Moore, former Cameron ace, with 25 pts. Richard Harris 20 pts. and Cornell Brantley and Victor Lesley 16 and I5 respectively. it 1, ,. .i " -I it ti 3' .Tiger nhiwwgggs ' -Q ,T it ' ,mimi .. , i 5.

Patience, en- durance, and unparalleled stamina are the pre-requisites for a Varsity athlete and fostered in those of the Intramural level. All of these qualities are perfected in each athlete, not just for the present, but for the future assignments which require the same, cool, confident handling of problems. An old saying is, "It's not if you win or lose, it's how you play the game." This is the spirit which the Fisk athlete has when he goes in "to win," but if losing is the order of the day, the Fisk athlete is prepared for that, too. After the Cloud embankments The lamentation ofwind, And the starrl' descent into time, We came to theflashin g waters and .shaded our eyes Fom the glare. Alone with the shore and the harbor, The .stents ofthe eoeoanut trees, Thejronds ofsilenee and hushed ntttsie, We Criedfor the new revelation And waited for miracles to rise. Where elements toueh and merge, Where shadows swoon like outeasts on the sand And the tired moment waits, its courage gonem There were we In latitudes where storms are born. -AArna Bontemps Special Features Xa WH f ff .f 2552.

With the end nearing. thoughts ol' the past lind us daily. We remember the rains that brought a deep green cover for her Spring Festival. We remember the moments that possessed a smile, and those that possessed tears. We remember the many companions now gone. that held us close and sung her Alma Mater with lruc compassion. Now as time passes and our departure draws near. her hedges seem to part to a challenging luture. But even with graduation in sight and the lecling ol' accomplish- ment we continue to generate and grow in Her still. lfor in truth we shall never really leave, we are now a part o Her, we are now a part ol' l-fisk. tClass ol"69l Lou lft'!IIl'l' I.

Greetings from the General Alumni Association Dr. H. Andrewlohnson III '52 President, General Alumni Association The opportunity to address the student body of Fisk University has been one of the most pleasant duties as President of the General Alumni Association. The privilege to assume this position, has, however, been very rare-a fact that makes any occasion of contact with our current generation of students one of the great significance. My Hrst impulse is to say a quite sincere thanks to whoever's responsible for providing me this opportunity, then to break into a verse of "The Alma Mater"-both of which, I think, are two pretty good first impulses. So, in this spirit, I shall delight in being here among Fisk students of this academic year, speaking for those alumni of '68 as well as '08 a warm and genial greeting . . . a hope for the renewal of the pledge from all Fiskites that "Where e'er . . .Thy loyal children make their way." MMM "Go turn the darkness into day." 202 ADDING A DIMENSION TO STUDENT DINING You did it, Class of '69 Congratulations! We're proud to have served you and we all wish you Bonne Chance!

The Oval Staff was hurrying to meet its last deadlines. This is only one of the many evenings they had given up throughout the year. It is those evenings, hours after classes, and Satur- days that we now acknowledge. But we first extend our thanks to the department that aided in the production of the book. . Our thanks to: The art department, under the chairmanship of Mr. David Driskell, for enabling us to use photographs from Charles Whiteis art collection. Mr. Earl Hooks for the use of his sculpture photographs. And now our thanks to: Karen Powell for the cover design which is beyond com- pare. Donald Graham for his collage, "Art is Soul." Emily Jenkins for her art work on the various pages. The Advertising Staff, whose hours of soliciting provided a large portion ofthe budget. The typing staff for typing the endless amount of text that a yearbook requires. Oma Olive, our business manager, for the 'financial prob- lems that were handled so well. The Literary Staff for the text and captions that describe one year of college life. - The Layout and Photography stali' for the imagination and creativity that comprise 7096 of the annual. Forum stall' for the use of the pictures published in the newspaper. Dr. Nebraska Mays for assistance in planning budget. Dean Hughes, our advisor, for his willingness to break precedents. Dr. Bowie for the use ofhis camera. It's the time and effort of this staff that has made the 1969 Oval possible. We hope they will recall with pride their association with the 1969 Oval. As this book is evidence of their work, so we hope that these acknowledgements are evidences of our sincere appreciation. Thank you. Harriezze Hardin-Editor Robert Ratcl1jfeAAss.

As I sit by my typewriter, I find myself lost for words. It is hard for 'a person to express himself about a job that he has done. It is sort of tak- ing a full time job, enjoying it immensely, and then leaving it. I have more than enjoyed my editorship of the 1969 Oval. A year of continuous at- tempts for perfection is now over, and I can recall the hours and days of work as only a memory. Capturing significant emotions and experiences has presented itself to be one of the greatest challenges that I have thus encountered, and the success of this trial lies in the readers' opinion of these 212 pages. In the book we created, we tried to capture the essence of the student's life at Fisk University. If we succeeded each individual student, whether he is a secluded scholar or a person well known to the campus popula- tion, will find himself represented somewhere within these pages. The vitality which the Oval Staff began its tasks gradually dwindled as deadlines approached and grades dropped. Yet we steadily sensed the immense responsibility reflecting the composite ofthe Fisk University Oval My utmost thanks to Walter Evans, the yearbook representative, for his long hours of work. For enduring our mistakes, providing the answers to our many problems, giving advice and stimulating morale. - I would like to thank the entire staff for their earnest co-operation and endurance. I would also like to thank my friends who willingly overlooked my often distressed and brusque moods. Thejob is done,the book has gone to press, but the fun and friendships shall linger forever. , ' If ' ' iJ55afz.w51fCz,f M414 fu ,J Harriette Hardin Editor-in-chief m 'nr
