As you graduate from Florida Memorial College in 1974 do not consider this t ime the end of your education and contact with the college family . New horizons and experiences will enter your path but, as you walk forward, remember your Alma Mater, what you learned and accomplished. Remember where you came from as you step forward. Take with you the thoughts, and memories, and return to give the college and new students the strength and benefit of your experience and knowledge. " Togetherness " — Helping one another, growing together, learning together is the process of giving and receiving needed to keep us united. As President of the college I extend to you my warmest congratulations and wish to see you return to the college family through the years. 90 The President Florida Memorial College Dr. Royal Puryear 91 " - ' , ' 5 flBl 08 C s d a OD 13 S (ID s © 03 N " S CS o .

It occurs to me that at this particular time in the history of Florida Memorial College there is more need for " togetherness " on the part of all components of the college family than ever before in the history of the institution. I am convinced that we need to be " together " if for no other reason than the purposes for which we exist, the goals we hope to attain, strategies for survival, mechanisms for continued support from the various public, and the accomplishment of our mission. I have felt for some time that we need to be together in telling the story of the College. One story is that in those cities where there have been historically black institutions, harmony among the races and progress for Black people have been more pronounced. Therefore, Dade County is profiting immeasurably by Florida Memorial College being in its midst. We are now about the business of actively producing persons who can take their rightful places in the workforce of South Florida, of Dade County, and of the several cities in the County. As we take our rightful places, we need to ever be conscious of our obligation and continuing responsibility of being " together ' ' in our telling the story of the significance of the institution. As chief academic officer of the institution, it appears to me that we need to be " together " about the purposes for which students have come to the College. The overriding purpose is to become knowledgeable generally and in specific diciplines that qualifies one for the market place so that he can make a contribution to himself, his family, his community, and the world at large. The interest of the institution needs to be promulgated by all components of the College family. If this " togetherness " is not realized immediately, disaster and gloom will hover over us a dark cloud. It has been my privilege to serve for nearly three years. I have seen some bright spots as we have worked together to provide the kind of education that will make you the most meaningful men and women you could possibly be. There is much yet to be done. We need to be " together " in imposing a self-discipline; a self-discipline which provides for intelligent self-control on the part of each of the components of the College family. We need to be together about the cleanliness of our campus, of the buildings, of the grounds, and of ourselves in terms of the spirit that we exhibit and the enthusiasm that comes forth in manifesting our sincere desire for a college education. Though the road may be rough from time to time, we should still be reminded that as Black people, our teeth were cut on difficult times. I am reminded of a line or two from the poem, " Invictus " , " I am tha captain of my fate; I am the master of my soul. " When we reach that point, all components of the College will be working in unison and indeed will be " together " . Mrs. Barbara Hill 129 Mr. Freddie Gallot Mr. Sanders f Business Manager Miss Davis 130 Registrar Office Mrs. Ida Ratcliff Mrs. Edna Gibson Miss Valorie Rogers Dean of Student Affairs Togetherness means different things to different people. Some view togetherness as power through unity, others as insight through knowledge. In lieu of the various meanings of togetherness, I view it as being able to work together as unit or harmonious family in order to achieve one common purpose and or goal. Yet, in order for students and faculty at Florida Memorial College to achieve a state of togetherness, we must first, respect ourselves, our institution and conceptualize what our purpose is at Florida Memorial College and achieve that purpose. Once these obstacles are achieved, positive attitudes and ideas emerge which are all part of togetherness. May I congratulate the editorial staff and advisor for this year ' s edition " The Arch " and for your effort to present in words and pictures the students, faculty, staff and administrators of Florida Memorial College. The challenge is ours. . Let ' s get it together. Roscoe C.

This sorority was started back in New York, Jan., 1953. The sorority serves to develop friendship among women of all races and creeds. Members achieve these goals by working side by side. The sorority includes in it membership both social sorority members and non-members who are enrolled and in good standing with her college and meets the requirements prescribed by the national sorority and by the local chapter. Through the sorority you will become a better citizen by learning to work in cooperation with women of all faith and nationalities and by exchanging customs with women from all over the nation. Gamma Sigma Sigma was founded on Florida Memorial College in April, 1972. There are 17 [seventeen] active members on campus. " OUTLOOK " Welcome .... to the home of the Lions. Florida Memorial will depend upon new talent, hopefully, that several will not return due to graduation. Six lettermen remain with the club. Out of the newcomers must come some with a scoring punch, good in rebounding, and strong on the boards. This season will represent a transition for both players and the coach. We have hopes of jelling. The potentials should develop with college ex- perience. Overall the Lions welcome men with speed, the good shot. This addition may make also a better defensive team for the Lions. At any rate, with hard work and a real desire, the team should make a terrific showing as the season progresses.

Last season was one of the finest for the Lions of Florida Memorial College. Accomp- lishing a complete turnabout from previous years. The lions posed an average of more than 90 points per game. At the helm is " Coach of the Year " , in the Southeastern Athletic Conference 1972 — 73. Last year during his first year, his basketball team compiled a 15 win 3 loss record. A native of Georgia, he received his bachelor ' s in physical education and recreation at Morehouse College and his master ' s from New York University. After graduation from New York University, he was drafter in the armed services where he worked with drug patients of the Chu Chi Mental Hygiene Clinic. Coach May emphasizes strong leadership character. Shows interest in the physiological, and social welfare of others. He strongly feels that all things being equal, this is another year for Florida Memorial Lions to capture the " Conference Championship and have a successful year. He feels that he has recruited a good talented group and he now has the ingredients necessary coupled with the returning letter men. Coach May has put together a schedule for 1973—74, considered one of the toughest for the Lions. 191 Track Team Phillip McNeal, Earnest Mitchell, William Brown, Harry Marshall, Ed- ward Jones, Jr., Kinney Bowers, Lloyd Holmes, Burl Lovett, Bernard Taylor, Larry Shaws, Willie James Morrison, Thomas E.

Miss Holston joined the faculty at Florida Memorial College the summer of 1971 in the Urban Service Department. Born January 24, 1945 in Reynolds, Georgia, a small rural community about twelve miles west of Fort Valley, Georgia, Miss Holston attended public schools in Georgia and Florida, graduating in 1961 from the Lincoln Park Academy High School in Fort Pierce, Florida. At Talladega College, she majored in sociology and became active in the Civil Rights Movements participating in several student sit-ins in Alabama and Florida. Upon graduation, two years were spent teaching in the public school system in Fort Pierce, Florida where Miss Holston became deeply concerned about the symptomatic mani- festations of poverty and decided to enter Howard University School of Social Work to attain the knowledge and expertise needed to be of services in helping to ameliorate the situations that many people, especially Blacks find themselves in. After having received the Masters of Social Work degree from Howard University in 1969, Miss Holston worked for two years in Washington D.C. as a service worker with the Department of Human Resources. She did additional work as a counselor at Boys Village in Chettenham, Maryland. " SERVICES " Worked under the auspices of the United Fund in a Sickle Cell Anemia screening campaign on the campus of Florida Memorial College at which time approximately 350 students were screened for Sickle Cell Anemia. Community Work — Worked with the National Welfare Rights Organization and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference prior to and during the Democratic National Convention in 1972. Member of the Legislative committee of the Social work section of the Florida Public Health Association and also serves on the Florida International University Undergrad- uate Social Work Community Advisory Board whose function is to advise and help shape and enhance the Social Work Program Florida International University. Presently working with students and community persons on Pitts-Lee Defense Fund in an effort to publicize the case of Freddie Pitts and Wilbert Lee and to raise money on their behalf. " I enjoy my work, but I am very much interested in seeing students become more concerned and involved in issues and problems that daily affect the lives of people. " " There needs to be an awakening of students and many others to the realization that life is not all fun and games and that at some point in time we must commit ourselves to something and begin to deal with real issues. Denying and or ignoring problems will not make them disappear. " Miss Holston likes to travel and meet people, she also likes family reunions and the company of good friends. Like good books, occasionally she tries her hand at writing. She sews and paints often and likes to visit peaceful scenes not touched that much by the daily humdrum activities of everyday life which she feels " does wonders for my mental stability. " Her plans are to do furuier study either in Social Work, Urban Planing, or Public Administration . D E D T I N 223 The Arch Editor My Fellow Classmates, In choosing my theme for this year ' s book, I confronted myself with this question, " Do you feel that you have become a part of Florida Memorial College? " To this my reply was yes, but how? From my first day here at F.M.C., I have always felt that I ' m truly a part of the total environment. No one has ever told me that I ' m a part of the " yard " , but then no one has to because anyone who belongs somewhere can easily tell they belong without any affirmation of the fact by anyone. Perhaps the sense of being a part of what ' s keeping us from being together is this feeling of not being. My brothers and sisters, you are a part of Florida Memorial College. Mr. Johnny L. Webbs The good times, the bad times, and the times when we are left with the job of trying to find out whether they are good or bad times are here. We love equality yes, we belong here together, we love being here, and a large part of our total spirit will always remain here.

Wisdom leadeth and guideth man in the right direction . It places in him a mind of complete understanding, a mind of great accomplishments . Wisdom is the continuous uprising of a wise man and the pitious down-falling of a fool and his house. Within its self, wisdom is better than gold and more precious than the rarest rubies. Wisdom is the key to Understanding. Wisdom is knowing. LOVE What is love? Does it still exist or has it been destroyed forever? O ' what is love? Does it have origin ! From whence, O ' from whence did it spring ! Why does it cause so much confusion and heartbreak? Love Is Just A Word! The sacredness it once possessed has long since been discarded by this nation young and old Love once was an object of affection. Love Is Just A Word! Just a common four-lettered word. Love is something beautiful. Love is something ugly. It brings happiness, joy, peace, heartbreak, confusion, sadness and a desire to slip away. Love is Just A Word! Just a common four-lettered word with a sacred meaning Love is affection, devotion, and under- standing. Love is LOVE Love is BEAUTY Love is BLACK Love is WHITE Love is a running sore: it spreads and devours. Love is something no one knows anything about. Love is unpredictable; it is the results of the improbable. HE WHO FAILS NEVER GROWS UP Failing is part of growing up. The person who never fails never gets a chance to feel the pains of growing up and facing reality. He never knows the aches and anxieties of struggling to win or to obtain a position , which in the end benefits his opponent. There is a method by which such disappointments can be made up for. This method is known as " trial and error. " He who never fails never gets a chance to improve himself and his methods. The candidate who is constantly winning gets the negative opinion " I know I ' m the greatest. " In the long run, our candidate finally has his day of losing. Then he is good for nothing. He gives up all hopes of wanting to live. He refuses to socialize and his moody mind drives him into another world, a world of insanity. He who never failed has a chance to grow up but he refuses to try our " trial and error method " . Instead, he commits suicide. Growing up was too much for the constant winner. He who never fails is like a child who has just received a new pair of skates for Christmen. He skates all day long and cries when mom or dad says " it ' s time to pull your skates off Jimmy. " Failing is a part of growing up. If we never fail, we ' ll never know what ' s on the other side of the mountain. SUCCESS Webster and several other sources define success as; the gaining of wealth or position. Success is the building up and tearing down of our society. Success can be defined as something both evil and good. It plants in man a stubborn, proud, haughty, and rebellious mind. It makes him turn his back on those who gave their last dime to help him up the ladder. Success builds in man an " I know I ' m best, mind. He becomes independent of his ever-faithful friends. It causes him to suddenly turn his back on the doors which so willingly swung out to protect him from inflation . Though it has its disadvantages, success is something phenomenal. It is the result of sticking to the bush until all of the berries have been gathered, is the result of long, hard-spent sleepless nights, and the aching of throbbing headaches. It is the advantage of sticking with an idea until the last straw can no longer stand anymore improvement. Success keeps the world on the go. If it were not for success, this vast world would be but an empty show and good for nothing. It EF Ef ah was a rich man, Lord ah ' d hab some murcy on ma black susters and bruthers in dis here land.

PEACE What would our world be if we practiced peace? Would there still be wars and rumors of wars? Would there be any need for fire arms? If we would only practice peace, Our world would be a world of love; Our world would be a world of joy and happiness. If we had peace, we would be contented; If we had peace, there would be more understanding. Peace is harmony, love and agreement; Peace is what we need for survival.
