Dear Rattlers, This edition of the "Rattler" means more than the space on this page would allow. Each page represents a long struggle for "success" despite the odds." lt has indeed been a dedicated tight to bring you a year worth remembering. Refiecting to the days when "a good plow" was passed from share cropper to son, the family heirloom from mother to daughter, with the plea for greater growth and prosperity, it is easy to see that this tradition still exists. Today that Hgood plow" takes the form of computer discs and microscopes to be passed on to the astronauts and scientists of the future. g This years' theme "Rattlerism Portraits of Excellence" is dedicated to yesterdays sharecroppers, today's working mothers, and tomorrow's leaders. lt defines the composition of a Rattler in mind, body and spirit embedded into the unique Rattler experience. We chose no formal dedication of this edition, because it is dedicated to you, the entire FAMU student body and alumni for you have endured this verystruggle and have been incorporated into the essence of Rattlerism. This book is a portrait of myself, my dreams, and ambitions. But more importantly, it is a portrait of you, Portraits of Excellence. Sincerely, 27fwW?r7.W Charles P. Moore Rattler Yearbook Editor-In-Chief RATTLERISM Rattlerism is the celebration of our culture and our heritage. and the ability to appreciate the arts. Rattlerism is not just an ex- pression, it's a state of mind, tightly interwoven into a tex- tured, fabricated existence. Rattlerism is found in many forms. Passed down from gen- eration to generation, Rattler- ism can be found in the dreams of a child with hopes of one day becoming a Rattler, through the glow in his eyes and the gleam in his smile. It is found in the memories of the oldg their PW '-" H ' glorious years on the Hill. Rattlerism is the burning ea- gerness to achieve and relate our cognitive knowledge and the virtue of patience. 4-'Wi Rattlerism is the pride in a campus whose structure radi- ates a feeling of strength, wis- dom and elegance . .. matched only by the beau- ty of a Rattler lady.

It's the inner feeling of pride and dedication that each mem- ber feels when he or she be- longs to that "great organiza- tion." They are putting their best foot forward in utilizing one's ability to be of service to the organization, the university and the community.

Tres' Chic Ebony Fashion Fair Page 125 Religion's Alive At FAMV Page 113 POP LAR MUS C IT SOUNDS GOOD B T THE LYRICS CA BE DEGRADING By Daisy Cherry Music Today has taken an interesting twist. Where as composition and arrangement accomplishments are dynamic, the lyrical content leaves its value to be questioned. Just turn on any popular Black radio station and you're likely to hear adult women boastfully singing about being "nasty girls" or that it doesn't matter that the man they want belongs to their best friend. "Music," says Frank Laskley, a 22 year old senior at FAMU, "is an art form that can touch the soul, manipulate emotions and have a profound and subconscious effect on the listener's mind." According to Laskey, "Black music tends to degrade Blacks. Few musicians like Stevie Wonder, produce well-written, well- played and non-degrading music." "What's disturbing" says Prymus Brown, 23, of Jacksonville Florida, "is the fact that a lot of highly creative musicians are artistically producing negative and questionable vibes." "This trend in music is not an example of musicians trying to survive or giving the people what they want, but more of an example of the lack of thought," says Laskey. "The music really reflects a trend in Black thought," says Phyllis Autry, a 21 year old senior at FAMU. "This is very disturbing." "To think that tunes like BARRY WHlTE'S "Change" and Cameo's "Be Yourself," don't get as much airplay as PRlNCE'S "international Lover" and "Dance, Music, Sex and Romance," is revolting says Brown. Joe Bullard WANM announcer and program director, says that "people are buying what they want. Bullard, a graduate of FAMU, and native of Jacksonville, has been with WANM for nine years and has been program director for six of those years. "Kids listen to "Head" Ca provocative song taken from PRlNCE'S 'Controversey' lpj, when it first came out, its up to the parent to explain the song to them. Parents should tell kids the significance of all of the songs," says Bullard. "l'm not a parent," says Brown, 'ibut when I hear the lyrics of some song, I imagine teenagers and kids becoming intrigued by its newness and freekiness. They're popping their fingers, singing the lyrics by rote and taking them all very lightly, maybe, having their outlook or behavior affected by it significantly." "lt still remains," says Bullard, that as did the saints, people will still go marching into the record shops." VENOM '83 UNIVTRSITY RELIGIOUS , ACTIVITY CENTER I CHL' ul Juiflu 'wmiooisv wllsm REFLECTIONS OF THE RELIGIOUS SCENE AT FAMU By Rev. Fletcher Bryant, Director of FAMU Reli- gious Activities Center The "old timers can be heard crying What happened to the good old days when we went to Vesper every Sunday evening and Religious Em- phasis Week was one of the highlights of the year! What about all of those singing groups we use to have and special religous programs. Could it be that Black Colleges and Universities are de- emphasizing religion, which has historically been the very corner-stone, strength, and substaining power of these institutions. A simple answer is, nothing has happened to religion on our campuses. It is "alive and well". However, it must be acknowledged that we have just emerged from twenty years of sweeping changes and revolutionary times in which tradi- tional manifestations and forms of religious pro- grams have not been in the forefront, A part of this demise can be attributed to the religion in the school debates in our State and Federal courts and an identity crisis among young black people in the sixties and early seventies, which very seriously questioned the relevancy of the church and particularly the relationship of the Black Church to white theology, worship, and organization. In the mist of this searching and struggling by black students, there has always been a deep religious consciousness rooted in their black church upbringing. Today, black college students still raise the hard questions and struggle with their new freedom of choice to go to church, or not to go to church, but beneath this struggle is a genuine desire to find God and religious meaning in the college setting. The success of Religious Programming on the college campus will, in the future, depend on the willingness of college administrations to provide the openess and climate for students to find meaning in a complex world much different than twenty years ago. The religious message, spiritu- al principles, and high morals remain unchanged, but the form and the style of Religious Programs must be altered to meet the religious needs of students in the contemporary college setting. In the words of a student, "we do not want exactly the same religious stuff we got back home. We want to be free to grow, to explore, and find new answers which speak to where we are present- ly." The scene at FAMU details this new thrust. A recent survey of religious affiliation and concerns QI , 1 L L L of FAMU students reveals the following data: I. Religious Affiliation - CBased on 1000 stu- dentsj AGNOSTIC - .1270 ATHEIST - .1270 CHARISMATIC - .1270 CHURCH OF GOD - .2470 HOLINESS - .8370 LUTHERAN - .9571 ANGLICAN - .1270 BAHAI - .1270 METHODIST - 2.770 PRESBYTERIAN - 2.070 BAPTIST - 57.171 CHRISTIAN - .8376 METHODIST QAMEJ - 14.470 CONGREGATIONALIST - .1270 MUSLIM -- .4770 SEVEN DAY ADVENTIST - .1270 ASPOTALIC -- .1270 CATHOLIC - 7.970 CHURCH OF CHRIST - .6070 JEHOVAH WITNESS - .3570 UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST - .24 ll. 10 registered religious groups representing ATI about 200 students on campus attend church regularly. IV. The majority of students live off campus, and there is no data concerning frequency with which these students attend church. However, consultations with ministers in the area, indicates that the churches are not reaching a significant number of FAMU students. V. There is no Sunday Chapel. A number of students attend one of the churches tem- porarily housed on campus. VI. On campus organized weekly religious ac- tivities have been limited in recent years. While the data does not appear encouraging, there are some exciting developments evolving at FAMU which should greatly impact our reli- gious programming in the future. The University for the first time since 1974, has engaged a full time Director of Religious Activi- ties through the office of the Vice President of Student Affairs. This new office was made possi- ble through the cooperative efforts of the United Methodist Church and other denominations. A new religious center has been opened in the Uni- versity Union Complex Csetj. This center includes a reading room, counseling office, a small group meeting room, and the office of the director, an ordain United Methodist Clergyman. A university wide calendar was established this year to bring such outstanding scholars as Dr. Eric Lincoln, Professor of Sociology of Religion, Duke Univer- sity, Dr. Jefferson Cleveland, Black Sacred Music Specialist, and lman W.D. Muhammed, world leader of American Muslims. The center pro- grams also includes bible studies, forums, and rap sessions. Other musical and creative pro- grams are developed in consultation with other organizations on campus. Finally, Florida A 8t M University, inspite of cer- tain limitation as a state institution in relating to religious programs has expressed interest in the total student by virtue of its openess regarding the importance of religion to a student. Every major event from an invocation at a convocation, to a music selection of the Marching 100, or a prayer in the football lockeroom reminds the FAMU student that the University is not only committed to academic programs, but the spiri- tual and religious well being of its students. Venom '83!113 ROTC News Feature LT. COL. CHARLES HOLDSNAKEU HOBBS RETIRES After 20 years of Mlitary Service He lea ves behind a strong Philosophy on life and success . . . "Hobbism " By Daisy Terri September 1, 1983 is a day that will be remem- bered by many Army officers and Army ROTC cadets at Florida A and M University. On that day, Lieutenant Colonel Charles "The Old Snake" Hobbs will officially retire from the US Army after a very successful career of 20 years. Hobbs came to Florida A and M University in 1980 as Professor of Military Science for Army ROTC. Those who witnessed the transition agree that in less than three years, Hobbs and his team of dedicated cadre and staff turned what was a floundering program, into what is now an out- standing one. Now, the morale and motivation of the corps in high, and above all, the level of student achievement is high, The greatest factor attributing to Hobbs' success with the program is something called "Hobb- sism." "Hobbsism" is, in fact, the basic personal philosophy of Hobbs. On any given day, one can walk over to Howard Hall and find Hobbs im- pressing upon his cadets to perform well, be con- fident and respect the rights and property of others. "Black students should, first and fore- most, love themselves, prepare well for the struggle and then make a contribution in life," says Hobbs. Hobbs has carefully built an ROTC program that - is guided by the principle which emphasizes that "there is no one in the world better than l am. Yes, there are some as good as I, but not bet- ter." A graduate of Florida A and M University and native of Miami, Florida, Hobbs was commis- sioned a second lieutenant in the US Army Infan- try in 1963. While at Florida A and M University as a student, he majored in Political Science, lettered 4 years in football, served as Army ROTC Battalion Commander and pledged Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. After assignment as Platoon Leader, Company Commander, administrationfpersonnel officer and operations officer, Hobbs was assigned as an instructor with the Florida A and M University Army ROTC detachment in 1969. In 1972 he was assigned to the Command and General Staff Col- lege as a student. From there he traveled to Texas where he received an M.A. Degree in Criminology. Among various other staff assignments during Venom '83!114 After building a strong ROTC Program Hobbs feels he's due a good rest. his 20 year career, Hobbs spent three months in Washington, D.C. as a special project officer on the committee designated to plan for the inaugu- ration of President Reagan. His awards and decorations include the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Commendation Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster. "l love Florida A and M University and I love this program. My greatest challenge has been to in- crease the ability of our students to communi- cate effectively," says Hobbs. Last year, Hobbs instituted programs geared toward correcting deficiencies of Army ROTC students. "We're do- ing more than just talking about it." Two of his key projects have been Assertive Skills Develop- ment conducted at Howard Hall by Dr. Juanita Williams of the Psychology Department, and a Reading Skills improvement Program coordinat- ed by Dr. Jennings at the FAMU Learning Re- sources Center. Hobbs sees his main purpose as that of produc- ing outstanding young people. "lf our graduates are good, they will make good Army officers. The college one attends, or one's hometown, is not really important. The thing that is, is the quality of the individual. We must never forget that our finished product reflects the quality of FAMU."

Anyone who thinks a person from a small town has to remain a small town person did not know Al Lawson, Jr.. Law- son, a native of Midway, Florida fits this description as well as a lot of added at- tractions. He attended Florida A 81 M University and graduated with a Political Science Degree. Throughout his college years he continued to strive for a career in Politi- cal Science and professional basketball, he said. After college he landed a coach- ing job at Florida State University at which he stayed for five years and opened a private insurance business that has been very successful for him. He is also a family man. His wife, De- lores, is on the FAMU School of Nursing staff. He also has a 12 year old son, Alfred Lawson lll and a daughter Shani age six. Politics has always been in his mind, Lawson said his plans were to try his hand at a city level position and then venture out into the state legislature. He said his plans were interrupted by the rezoning of the city's districts so he de- cided to wait for another opportunity, it finally came and now Al Lawson, Jr. is one of 10 blacks in Florida's House of Representatives. "This is not an easy job because of the people's livelyhood. lt is a rewarding ex- perience to some, yet it is hard because you have to deal with the poor people being left out on major breaks." Lawson said. Like all jobs, being in the House of Re- presentatives has its good and bad points. Lawson said, "A feeling of work- ing with the people" is the most satisfy- ing in his job. "Knowing that many peo- ple try to manipulate "the system" is the most dissatisfying of the job. His major goal while maintaining his po- sition inthe state legislature is to stimu- late economic development to form jobs, he said. He is trying to do just that because he serves on the Tourism, Judi- ciary, Economic Development and High- er Education committees. He is also working on the Cable Television, Regis- tration by Mail and the Alcohol Educa- tion Bills. Like many of his counterparts, the house member is a very well known citi- zen and has served on many of the city's major committees. His record includes being the past chairman of the board and president of the Tallahassee Urban League, past president and chairman, FAMU Boosters, directer and advisor, the United Way Council, vice president, for the Lincoln Neighborhood Center, past board member, FSUEEO Advisory Council, past chairman, FSU Graduate and State Public Administration. He is also a Little League baseball coach. In the insurance business he has won many of the most prestigious awards given. He is affliated with the Northwes- tern Mutual Life Insurance Company. They are a disability and retirement pen- sion corporation. Throughout his career he has won Agent of the Year in 1979 for the best sales in the state of Florida, the Mike Gish Award which is given to the lst and 2nd year outstanding agent, the Bronze Gold and Silver award in sales and the Million Dollar Round Table Award which is given to the most presti- gious insurance salesman. How does he feel about his accomplish- ments? He said, "When you get in- volved, the people want you." And get- ting involved is what he did! But it's not stopping there for Lawson. He plans to get a Master's Degree in insurance fi- nance and within five years he plans to produce S10 milliona year in insurance and finally get his own office building. "Al Lawson is what many blacks in Talla- hassee considers as their hope," said one source.

His new wave rock album, 1999 takes an altered approach to listening. The title track takes a "live for today" message. Tunes include "Let's get delirious", "Automatic," and "International Lover." Two of the album's most controversial cuts are "Little Red Corvett" and "Lady Cab Driver." Both have one evasive surface meanings, but sex is the undertone. Much of Prince's finacial success is due to capture both R Bt B and rock audiences. Most significant is the fact that Prince has few pockets to fill other that his own. He continues to produce, arrange, compose and perform all of his music. In addition to his own acclaim two of Prince's prodisy groups The Time and Vanity 6 are doing trumendously well. gnidlliif- ' ? Cold Blooded Rick Some say he nasty rude and coarse. Local civic groups say he has a negative influence on today's youth, but Rick James could care less because he's doing his own thing and enjoying every minute and every dollar of it! Rick James puts on no fronts. His music is about his life street life. Like his prior releases, "Throwdown," which featured "Dance With Me," and "Standing On The Top,"' ffeaturing the return of the Temptations on background vocalsj and "Street Songs" which featured "Getto Life" and "Pass The Joint" his music is symbolic of the street . . . Coldblooded and the title of his current lp. "Coldblooded" is a countinuation of Slick Rick's musical point of view. The title cut is a celebration of the old "boy meets girl, girl plays hard to get" routine, getto style. The aIbum's top ballad is "Ebony Eyes" and features a duo with Rick and Smokey Robinson. This year Rick has also introduced his answer to Prince's Vanity 6, The Mary Jane Girls. They're Candi, Cheri, JoJo and Maxi four sexy ladies with a great sound. Their hits include: "All Night Long", "Boys," and "Candyman". ... U V 1 5- L I il .s-s...LiI., Truly Lionel Truly Lionel 1983 has been a year of transitions, modifications and branching out for many artists. Commodore lead singer, Lionel Richie has taken a break from his career pals and tried his hand at going solo. One thing that hasn't changed is his style music and its effect on women! When Richie sings his lyrics take on special meaning to all femine ears with respect for a love song. His latest effort, Truly" is loaded with mellow tunes that hang tough with the leading "pop" tunes on the charts. Do it Roger Do it. Roger Troutman is also making it out on his own. Former lead singer of the group "Zapp", Roger is making remarkable waves with tunes like "Dolt Roger Do lt," and "Do Wa Diddy". Zapp is not exactly suffering over the lost of Roger. They are continuing to make upward bounds with hits like "I Can Make You Dance." Luther Vandross Success didn't come over night for Luther Vandross. It took many years of ups and downs to reach Luther's pinnacle of success. Now he is considered one of the leaders in contemporary music. In 1981 after a successful stay as lead singer for the group "Change," Luther made his debut as a one man show with the release of his first effort, entitled t'Luther" His current Ip, "Forever, For Always, For Love" establishes Vandros as one of the most creative performer of a ballad today. Some of lp's hottest cuts include, "Bad Boy fHaving a Partyj, which is a combonation of Luther's own creativity with that of the late Sam Cooke, and She Loves Me back. In addition to producing his own albums, Luther Atomic George ATOMIC GEORGE He's bold, daring and the king of funk, George Clinton started his P-Funk crusade in the 70's with the landing of "The Mothership Connection," starting a new wave of music through musical characterizations such as Dr. Funkensteinand Rumpelsteelskin. Currently on tour with the P-Funk All-Stars, George is promoting his new album "Computer Games". His smash hit 'Atomic Dog" is smoking the charts with such lyrics as "Why must I feel like that Why must I chase the cat? ... Nothing but the dog in me." Cheryl Lynn has produced an excellent album for the spirited vocalist and entertainer, Cheryl Lynn. Her new release "Instant Love" is an instant success. In the title cut Cheryl vibrates on this uptempo tune with crystal clear vocalization. The two come together to do an excellent ballad entitled "lf This World were Mine." This song is the hottest cut on the entire album. In addition to producing Cheryl Lynn, Luther is also credited with bringing the spotlight back on "the Queen of Soul", Aretha Franklin. He also plans to produce Dione Warwick's upcoming album. Eg. i 3 , , we V. .gf ali Peabo: Born To Love BORN TO LOVE Peabo Bryson's 1982 "Don't Play With Fire," was recieved with moderate success. However his 1983 combo with Roberta Flack entitled "Born TO Love," brings together two brilliant vocal styles that have made their albums hit bound. The songs have all the classic characteristics of the power and depth that the two artists are famous for. Although both Flack and Bryson's ability can stand alone, together they prove that two marvelous voices are better than one. The album is loaded with ballads and dance tunes. The Album's title cut and "Tonight CWe celebrate our lovej and "Born to Love" are the current smashes but others aren't far behind. i X gi-ri Amazing Grace: A One Man Show AMAZING GRACE: A ONE MAN SHOW Sexy diva singer Grace Jones is amazing. This former european model and Oxford University graduate, has gone back to her Jamaican roots with her latest album entitled "Living My Life." As always Grace continues to be a trend setter and occupies her own space in contemporary music. The album is packed with tunes double dipped in raggae Funk. The track "My Jamaican Guy," takes you on a journey to an island shore on a hot blazing day. An infallible beat makes it a ' terrific dance tune. The aIbum's hottest release, "Nipple to The Bottle", is a chip off the old "Pull up to the Bumper" block in which the lyrics take on a "take it any way you want to" meaning. One of the album's best but often over looked in terms of air play is "Unlimited Capacity for Love," like the other uptempo selections, it carries a heavy beat. Equally as exotic is "Cry Now Laugh Later." Unafraid of being herself Grace is comfortable just being her own outrageous self. She's indeed living her life.

FROM TWO POI T OF RELATIUNSI-HPS VIEWS: VIEW 0 E: GO IT LO E! ,..... Cynthia and Anita have been roommates for several years with virtually no problems, oth- ers unfortunately are not so lucky. By Sheila McNair Some people can get along with any- one, while others can get along with no one. If you are not one of the people, who adapt easily this article may be of some use to you. When trying to get along with one's roommate there are two things that must be taken under consideration. The two are communication and con- sideration. For example, if one room- mate is having a "pot party" the other roommate shouldn't just invite him or herself, he or she should ask first. And if the roommates get together and dis- cuss the possibility of a conference with dormitory officials and the friendly neighborhood police. Cleanliness is a problem that has pla- gued roommates since the dawn of time. One roommate will always think that the other roommate is either too neat or is too nasty. To combat this age old problem, local hospital officials have come up with a strategy that is guaranteed to be successful. No one should clean up! There are others who say they have the real key to getting along with any roommate at any time, no matter who the roommates are, no matter what the situation. lt is very simple. Don't have a roommate. lt's the quickest ea- siest way to save yourself the hassles and pains. Venom ,83 THE '80'S VIEW TWO: SHARE YOUR LIFE! By Daisy Terry "There's a difference between being alone and being lonely" says Sonya Stewart, a 21 year old junior at Beth- une Cookman College. "I don't want to be lonely. People have died from being lonely." According to Dr. Audrey Chapman, a family therapist who conducts support groups for Black single women at How- ard University's Counseling Center, "loneliness has and still does plague millions of people. Some deal with it realistically and maturally. Others deal with it negatively." Juan Crosby, a 32 year old biller at Southern Bell, says that "when loneli- Roy and Brenda are one of the campus's most in- seprable couples. The joy they find in their relation- ship radiates through their smiles. ness gets me so down I have to fight to keep from doing things that are harm- ful or negative for my personality. ln- stead of seeking out a lot of women to soothe my loneliness, I concentrate on building a relationship with one wom- an." "Another person can make the differ- ence in anyone's life. In a relationship, that person can be, above all things, a best friend," says Prymus Brown, a 23 year old from Jacksonville. "However," says Stewart, "any good, solid and sincere relationship involves two mature people. Two people who both agree on what they want."

In order to appeal to the viewer the image must have universal understanding. One thing I don't like is when people say "your camera takes good pictures." They fail to realize that a photographic image is not just the technical execution which is manually pressing the shutter, but the obtaining of knowledge to know how to capture that image, such as correct exposure and composition. For the know how is of very little use with out the know why." VENOM GALLERY PHOTOS BY: DWIGHT TEMPLETON Dwight Templeton Photographs his surroundings with vivid expression.

It's something we all like to have, contentment without a trace of doubt. Yes, something to keep us from feeling bad, have peace of mind and carry with clout. As each day pass of our lives we live we thrive for things to keep us satisfied. Keeping our dreams so alive and vivid, feeling comfortable until that day we die. Some who can't achieve use alcohol, drugs and some even crime. Yes these they try, though they may seem crude they have a need, a desire to keep up with time, living each day hoping for complete solitude. Another way to try, keep away from others bull. Although don't be arrogant, stay cool, placid and kind. Then you know you're living each day very successful, yes knowing each day you're living with . . . peace of mind.

As the atmosphere changed with each selection, Dizzy performed some oi world's favorite tunes such as "A Night in Tunisia", "Take the "A" Train" and "Salt Peanuts." "Sex is a misternenor . ,, the more l miss the meaner l get," cracked Dizzie during one of his many humorous intermissions, Blowing some purest notes ever heard on his unique trumpet, Dizzy piloted a journey through the 40's and those glorious days at the Savoy Cone of jazz headquarters of the worldj when he and Charlie "yardbird" Parker revolutionized the art of Mjazzin' it " Born in Cheraw South Carolina, John Birks 'tDizzie" Gillespie was first introduced to music by his father, an ameture musician and grew attached to the trumpet at age 15. Dizzle gained most of his recognition during the late 30's and into the 40's. He worked briefly with Mercer Ellington in New York and toured with Cab Calloway's Band in 1939. From there he piayed with a long line of Jazz aristocrats including: Elia Fitzgerald, Betty Carter, Charlie Barnet, Les l-lite, Calvin Jackson, Earl "Father" l-lines, Woody Herman, and John Kirby. Although Dizzy has recorded many tive and studio recordings which were strickly about the business of jazz, most recently Dizzy Gillespie did a little branching out with his work sultry songtress, Chaka Khan. When Chaka recorded the lp "Whatcha Gonna Do For Me" last year, Dizzie was featured on his own "Night ln Tunisa", which was given new lite with contempory rythms, a new title: "Anight ln Tunisia, CAnd the melody still lingers ony" and for the first time set to lyrics. ln Addition to being a trend setter, and a musical perfectionist, Dizzy is a jazz historian, dedicated to the longevity of jazz. Reviewing some of the drawbacks of jazz, Dizzy notes that one of the most significant probierns is that the youth of today arent getting enough exposure to jazz as they should. "Parents don't have much respect for lt. Classical music is considered more culturally enriching to most parents," He said in an interview with FAMUAN reporter Sherry Tigget. "l go into the schools and they all have white bands playing our music and l ask. Where is us?" Dizzy also revealed that aithough there is much more electronic sound involved in jazz today, the basic thrust has remained the same. "lt's not much difference than in the 4O's," he said. They CMusciansy have the same articulation. Each generation has its own stamp, but there will always be copiers just like in the one in the 4O's."

MARY Mcctsoo emma: BY HERBERT LATNEY Why Black Psychology? This may be a question that many ask when first introduced to the term. ls psychology not simply another "objective" science which can not be referred to in racial or cultural terms? According to many social scientists, the science of psychology is not objective and is quite vulnerable to variations, socioculturally and cosmologically. It is the contention of some psychologists that psychology, as presented in todays society, is essentially the Western hemisphere's version of psychology. This Western Psychology has been disguised to make students believe that this perspective of psychology is in fact, the Universal and Natural Psychology of the world. Because of this manipulation, Black social scientists believe it is necessary to promote the term Black Psychology in new theories have been presented. The habitual task of regurgitation of material has been changed to the task of studying and critically analyzing material and its' relevance to Black people in America. Black Psychology in its' most basic form has strong ties to African philosophy. Black Psychology takes into account the effects that slavery and the total system of oppression has had on the minds of African- Americans. Black Psychology seeks provocative measures to improve the mental conditions of the community. While not solely committed to "pointing the finger" Black Psychology does not hesitate to identify and resist antagonistic forces for the Black community. order to negate the idea of the universality of Western The utility of Black Psychology for the African- psychology. Here at Florida A 8. M University during the academic year of 1982-83, the issue of Black Psychology has been extensively addressed by the Department of Psychology behind the thrust of the Association of Black Psychologists. Psychology from the perspective of the African-American takes on cultural differences that has not been addressed by traditional Western psychology. Issues and theories that have been presented as the "truth" have been questioned and American college student centers around the definition of reality. This perspective of psychology helps us to filter through reality and non-reality for Black people. This discrimination is paramount in the healthy functioning of African-Americans. So as the question of "Why Black Psychology" is raised the answers come forward. Black Psychology defines and affirms the reality of living for Black people in America. Black Psychology is one of the first steps towards the liberation of our minds. By: Deborah S. Jones How well do you know your Black Op- era Stars?

"We Don't Have To Be Concerned With Missing Windows In The Rain, Or Doorless Doorvvays Or Even Hunger Pains That Won't Be Softened By A Bag Of Potatoe Chips Or A Milky Way Bar From The Closest Vending Machine!" C3 nag By: Debra M. Kirby "lf you sprinkle, when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat." "Mary-N-Martin, Pam loves Peter." Graffiti. Buildings, bus seats and public restrooms are full of it. Now, however, it is as much a part of col- lege campuses as exams and Greek organizations. Along with its in- crease, is vandalism and for Florida A 84 M University -thank goodness, it is minimal. True there are some cases of vend- ing machine tamperings, and in vir- tually every classroom in every building on campus, there stands a desk with no table top or a three- legged chair, but these same find- ings can be found on almost every campus in the U.S. and most are not caused by vandalism - or at least, not on FAMU's campus. Donna Miller, a data processing ma- jor from New York, said that "broken chairs and desks are found in alot of the classrooms in Tucker Hall, but l've never heard of break- ins and sabotages in anu of FAMU's buildings. Veronica Giles, a junior finance ma- jor from Pompano Beach, reiterated similar sentiments. "Fl-XMU has a couple of raggedy desks but I can't see where we suffer from vandalism on anything near a wide scale. The closest I know to actual vandalism is the latest run of panty raids happen- ing in the girls' dorm." she laughed. Said Debra Harper, "FAMU's walls are in pretty good condition, l don't know about break-ins or broken glass doors, and I certainly haven't heard anything about any office equipment being stolen. l think van- dalism at FAMU is done on a very small scale if in fact, it is done at all. Well fellow Famuans, I for one an glad that amongst all our other prob- lems, we don' have to be concerned with walking into class one morning and finding NO four-legged chairs or NO desk without tabletops. We don't have to be concerned with missing windows in the rain, or doorless doorways or even hunger pains that won't be softened by a bag of pota- toe chips or a Milky-Way bar from the closest vending machine. Now, if only we would be that there won't be more of those darned pan- ty raids! N-rife, f R N? - ..-W - j .""'x -.

"I wanted to be a queen that would be accessible to the needs of the students." The job of being MISS FAMU has been exciting as well as productive for Terri. However the job requires a lot of time and stamina. In addition to always be- ing on call to perform her duties as Miss FAMU, Terri is a peer counselor, a Girl Scout Leader in the Tallahassee area and a member of Delta Sigma Theta lnc. The 21 year old Senior from Orlando Florida said that the highlight of her reign was Homecoming Week. During her coronation she was honored with a parade of valuable gifts. COne of which was a wedding gownllj She happily re- calls the exciting sensation as she and her court were being presented to the crowd of spectators at the game. "That was a beautiful day" Terri said. "I was so proud because my parents were watching me from the stands." Terri also feels that she has been al- lowed to grow in her communication abilities as well as her confidence. Be- ing MISS FAMU she says has given her the opportunity to interact with and meet more people. In many instances Terri has had to come forward to ad- dress an audience, for this reason she feels that it is essential that Miss FAMU keep up with "all" of the issues espe- cially those concerning the university. Being a Senior Business Administration major Terri notes that she must re- member to be a student first. How does she get through these strenuous times? She puts her faith in God, her christianity and prayer. Through her faith she finds that class responsibil- ities and her duties as Miss FAMU are a lot easier. Always interacting with her fellow stu- dents and cheering those around her, Terri decided to remain on campus to be closer to the student body. Her room often became a center for uni- versity information campus activities and counseling. Terri feels that her reign as Miss FAMU has been very rewarding.
