I I - r f • m m « II di _ i 0 X .A ' w In this Age of Aquarius new gateways are being opened. Time passed has seen us through many trials — joys and sad- ness, rejoicings and mournings. Seeming- ly we have been victorious, but the battle is yet to come. This is the education that we set out to acquire — this is the true learning. The great victory will come when, after travelling along the road — sometimes crawling and sometimes running, we learn that the ideal goal is, " to choose one gateway to enter, taking care to look through all and neglect none. We, the staff of THE ARCH, INVITE YOU TO JOIN US in our travel through THE ARCH 1971 .. . " The gateway to the seventies " . We invite you, brothers and sisters, to join hands in these encounters of the sevejjfries, and make this travel a dream. And if you be disappointed, do despair.

Barn- hart. Dr. Barnhart joined the Florida Memorial College family in 1963. He is a native of Boonville, Missouri and began his early education there at Central College. Later he attended Michigan State College and the Uni- versity of Vienna for special classes. Receiving his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the Un- iversity of Tennessee, he went on to attain his Phd. in English from the University of North Carolina. Dr. Barnhart has made many val- uable contributions to Florida Me- morial, especially in the areas of lit- erature and publications. For the past seven years he has served as advisor to THE ARCH, and from 1964-1965 he advised THE LION ' S DEN, the campus newspa- per. In 1964, he established the Al- pha Omega Chapter of Lambda Iota Tau, an International Literary Honor Society. In 1965 he brought Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges to Florida Memorial ' s campus, and in 1968 he sponsored THE LAMP, a publication of Lambda Iota Tau. Dr. Barnhart is now chairman of the Division of Humanities, chair- man of the Self-Study Steering Committee, and a former chairman of the Faculty Senate. He holds membership in the Alpha Kappa Mu National Honor Society as well as the Phi Kappa Phi Honor So- ciety. Dr. Barnhart receives plaque from S.G.A. his service to THE ARCH.

Di Q vegoty If nature says to you, " I intend you for something fine, For something to sing the song That only my whirling stars can sing, For something to burn in the Firmament With all the fervor of my golden sun. For something to moisten the parched souls As only my rivulets can moisten the parched, " What can you do? If the System says to you, " I intend you to grind and grind Grains of corn beneath millstones; I intend you to shovel and sweat Before a furnace of Babylon; I intend you for grist and meat To fatten my pompous gods As they wallow in an alcoholic nectar, " What can you do? Naught can you do But watch that eternal battle Between Nature and the System. You cannot blame God, You cannot blame man; For God did not make the System, Neither did man fashion Nature. You can only die each morning, And live again in the dreams of the night. If Nature forgets you. If the System forgets you, God has blest you. -Fenton Johnson Dr. Vince Q imelli ' p Sank through easeful azure. Flower creatures flashed and shimmered there — lost images fadingly remembered. Swiftly descended into canyon of cold nightgreen emptiness. Freefalling, weightless as in dreams of wingless flight, plunged through infra- space and came to the dead ship, carcass that swarmed with voracious life. Angelfish, their lively blue and yellow prised from darkness by the flashlight ' s beam, thronged her portholes. Moss of bryozoans blurred, obscured her metal. Snappers, gold groupers explored her, fearless of bubbling manfish. I entered the wreck, awed by her silence, feeling more keenly the iron cold. With flashlight probing fogs of water saw the sad slow dance of gilded chairs, the ectoplasmic swirl of garments, drowned instruments of buoyancy, drunken shoes. Then livid gesturings, eldritch hide and seek of laughing faces. I yearned to find those hidden ones, to fling aside the mask and call to them, yield to rapturous whisperings, have done with self and every dinning vain complexitv. Yet in languid frenzy strove, as one freezing fights off sleep desiring sleep; strove against the cancelling arms that suddenly surrounded me, fled the numbing kisses that I craved. Reflex of life - wish? Respirator ' s brittle belling 9 Swam from the ship somehow; somehow began the measured rise. -Robert E.

It was suggested to Arizona Clever by Charles S. Taylor, a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, that she establish a sister organi- zation. This has become a national organization of col- lege women banded together under a common bond of friendship and cultural effort seeking to establish the true worth of womanhood through excellence in educa- tion, human service and citizenship.

" " An " ef he refuse to do it, I will make him rue de houah, Fu ' I ' ll empty down on Egypt All de vials of my power. " Yes, he did — an ' Pher ' oh ' s ahmy Wasn ' t wuth a ha ' f a dime; Fu ' de Lawd will he ' p his chillun. You kin trust him evah time. An ' yo ' enemies may ' sail you In de back an ' de front; But de Lawd is all aroun ' you, Fu ' to ba ' de battle ' s brunt. Dey kin fo ' ge yo ' chains an ' shackles F ' om de mountains to de sea; But de Lawd will sen ' some Moses Fu ' to set his chillun free. An ' de Ian ' shall hyeah his thundah, Lak a bias ' f om Gab ' el ' s ho ' n, Fu ' de Lawd of hosts is mighty When he girds his ahmor on. But fu ' feah some one mistakes me, I will pause right hyeah to say, Dat I ' m still a-preachin ' ancient, I ain ' t talkin ' ' bout to ' day. But I tell you, fellah christuns, Thingsll happen mighty strange; Now, de Lawd done dis fu ' Isrul, An ' his ways don ' t nevah change. An ' de love he showed to Isrul Wasn ' t all on Isrul spent; Now don ' t run an ' tell yo ' mastahs Dat II preachin ' discontent.

C ' s Get away with " Valentino " Paul Williams Get away with •Jeff Jeffery Smith G Get away with " Mr. Cool " Paul Bodie | The Florida Memorial ' s Get-A-Way Ex- press was started in St. Augustine, Fla., the previous site of Florida Memorial Col- lege in 1968. At that time the group was known as the " Soul Shockers " . The idea of a Rock ' n Roll Band was first conceived by James Dorsett, Ronnie Williams, Paul Williams, Frank Johnson and Edmond Knowles, who served as master of cere- mony and band manager for two years. Mr. Brayden, at that time, Band Direc- tor at the College saw in the band the op- portunity to shock the little Spanish city. He became sponsor and advisor to the band and later took on the responsibility of Business Manager for them. Upon coming to Miami, the band got started in hard rock, jazz, classical music, psychadelic junk and in short a much more broadened field of music. They have appeared in numerous of the top night spots in the City of Miami, among them the famous Continental and Mr. D. In Fort Lauderdale they appeared in the well known Soul City. Qet-AWzy Gxpvess In Miami, Mr. John Price, Professor of Music at the College became advisor to the group and was quite instrumental in mak- ing it possible for them to appear on sev- eral T.V. Shows and also make recordings with others of Florida Memorial ' s secret stars, namely, Mr. Freddie Munnings, Mr. Timothy Thomas and Florida Memorial ' s own College Choir. In the estimation of the Yearbook ' s Staff, and we are certain that we do not stand alone on this, the Get-a-Way Express has made a tremendous contribution to the enrichment of social life on the cam- pus. More than often have they voluntarily " jammed " in the S.U.B. spreading their " love, peace and happiness " throughout the campus — their melodious tones echoing from the stately halls of Miami to the coquina walls of St. Augustine.

Faced with liens against its buildings amounting to more than $320,000 the college faced another formid- able task. Without money, and it could not be secured as long as the liens were against the buildings, the progress and growth of the college ' s physical plant was at a stand-still. Nevertheless, the progress made by the college in the last eight months has been truly note- worthy. Among these accomplishments are the: ' Award of a $207,500 grant from the Kellogg Foundation to beef up the college ' s business adminis- tration program. ' ' Addition of key administrative staff members, with a young, progressive yet mature philosophy, including the Dean of the College, Director of Admissions, Dean of Students, Dean of Men, Dean of Women, and Direc- tor of Public Relations. Several highly-qualified staff and faculty members were also added. Award of a grant to train five promising students for medical careers. ' ' More effective student-faculty-administration rela- tionships with the addition of the new dean and the start of the student newspaper, The Lion ' s Den. ;: ' A significant heightening of the academic life and curriculum at the college, including substantial im- provements in the school ' s library and its related serv- ices. (See Exhibit " C " .) We have made other significant gains, these are but a few of them. In our main divisions of interests we saw these as some of the changes and beginnings: ACADEMIC LIFE: Since the appointment of the new Dean of the College, the Academic Council, an impor- tant arm of the academic future of the college, has begun meeting weekly. In this short period of time they have already revised the Faculty Handbook, started a complete revision of the college catalog for the school year 1971-72, begun consideration of revised degree programs in all fields, and strengthened the require- ments on college-wide testing requiring the GRE of all graduating seniors, the NTE of all teacher candidates and other appropriate examinations in other programs. The faculty has begun to tighten its organization and operation. The faculty senate has become more active in all phases of campus life. Though these changes and directions arc outstand- ing, we are not stopping here in our academic progress. The academic life of a college is a healthy environ- ment, a thriving environment where we take girls and boys, many with little worldliness about them and make educated men and women of them. Much of this education centers not only around the academic life, but also around the " how you survive in this world because you ' re black. " One of the biggest tasks the college has ahead of it is one of absolute involvement of all factions of the community, especially the Miami community. To assist us with this is the first black man to be elected to a School Board post in the State of Florida, Mr. William Turner. Mr. Turner is now a member of our staff serv- ing as Director of Placement and Community Rela- tions. In some way we must involve the students, the staff, the faculty and administration in all phases of our campus and community life, but we must not forget that the continued growth of the institution depends very heavily on the support we are able to mount from volunteers in Miami and throughout the country that are businessmen, housewives, laborers, politicans, bankers, educators, graduates and alumni of the col- lege. If we do not have the involvement of all of these people and more, our doors most assuredly will close and none of us want to see the demise of the college. We firmly believe it is here to stay. Miami is growing and we are growing with it. A major effort has begun to have a class this September of 875 students. With renewed efforts in recruitment, we feel confident we will reach that goal. The time that Florida Memorial College will have 1,300 is not far away. This represents just a broad overview of the year 1970-71. It has been a challenging year. But we feel. very sincerely, that we have met the challenge but the major part of our task lies ahead in the years to come. Let ' s get on with the job. ! . V ' ■■ ' 195 Florida Memorial College ' s President, Dr. Royal W. Puryear, has announced the appointment of Dr. Lester B. Brown as the new Dean of the College. A cum laude graduate of Southern University in Baton Rouge, La., Dr. Brown comes to Florida Memorial from Albany State College where he was pro- fessor of science education. With his appointment, he brings to the college more fhan twenty years of experience in education and science. The forty-one-year-old dean, who will be responsible for curriculum and gen- eral supervision of the academic life at the college, is a native of Delhi, Louisi- ana. Dr. Lester B. Brown, Dean of the College. Mr. Paul H. Wyche, Jr. has been named Director of Public Relations for Florida Memorial College, effective Feb. 15, 1971. Mr. Wyche, whose firm, Images Interna- tional, Inc., a locally-based public rela- tions, advertising and marketing com- pany, has been contracted by the college to perform public relations services. The 24-year-old Mr. Wyche, is president of Images International, and served as Director of Public Affairs for three years for the Economic Opportunity Program, Inc., the local anti-poverty program. He has also served as editorial contributor and urban writer for the Miami News for four years and has been a contributor to num- erous national publications including Ebony, Jet, National Observer, and Na- tional Catholic Weekly. 196 Mr. Paul H. Wyche, Director of Public Relations. -SOUL: REBEL BOUTIQUE Selj 9nferprda iori Afterward s " The heart of a child " ■ ' U t Well, sisters and brothers, we have had a most beautiful journey, a most enlightening experience. We have passed through the gateway. Education is like love. Everybody needs it. Man chooses different ways by which to educate himself. We have chosen the books and the long hours of study, and we have excelled in them. Sometimes as we have trudged across the dark rugged roads, we have thought that, " The battle is lost. " We have passed through " The Gateway to the Seventies, " but the road stretches far ahead into an abyss. We have tasted the joy of victory and have borne the agony of defeat. But we have realized that this is our choice. Having seen all the ways, neglecting none, we have chosen this, " The College. " This is our edu- cation; this is our gateway. Although the journey be long and tiring, do not surrender and do not despair. And if perchance you are disappointed, you can change it. But remember that the change must always come from within. There is no escape. Fight your battle in this way that you have chosen. To us this is the only way. This is the only existence. This is present. We, the staff of " The Arch 1971 " , have presented to you what we esteem the best of seventy-one. With untiring effort, we have tried to capture, through words and pictures, those precious memories of this college year. We have had our shortcomings, but we have survived. It is our sincere hope that our presentations will remain dear to you, our fellow students. Some may feel disappointed, but I implore you, " Do not feel abandoned. " There were times when we, the staff of " The Arch 1971, " had our disappointments. But we have faced it all with the heart of a child and the courage of a lion, and we are proud to know that we have come the way. We hope that you will look on our work with great happiness and that your eyes will brighten with ex- citement as your fingers slowly retrace the pages, your eager mind joyfully recounting each minute and your anxious heart proudly reliving the spirit of 1971. These are memories that are dear to all of us. These are the memories of 1971. This is " The Col- lege " — FLORIDA MEMORIAL COLLEGE. This is our choice. This is " THE ARCH 1971 " . . . " The Gateway to the Seventies. " " The sleeping giant ' 199 V, .
