Von Boross 1912-1974 The Florida Memorial College family was shocked and saddened by the news of the death of Mrs. Maria H. Von Boross who died on June 23, 1974. Mrs. Von Boross served as Circulation Librarian since 1968, when the college moved from St. Augustine to Mi- ami, until the time of her demise in 1974. Shaw ' s words may well sum up her philosophy: " I want to be thoroughly used up when I die. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a kind of torch which I hold only for a moment and I wish to make it burn as brightly as possible before passing it on to future generations. " Mrs. Von Boross lived a full life. She was held in the highest esteem by those who knew her, and her great service to Florida Memorial College will be missed. Her first concern always was the students of Florida Memorial College. The college fam- ily believes that her life will remain a legacy to th e college. Everyone loved and admired Mrs. Von Boross. Leroy Thompson Head Librarian In Memorium Kenneth J. Huenink AB, BM, MM, Ed. D 1974 A warm friendly smile. Time to listen; to exchange ideas. Puffing on a pipe. Interested in students, colleagues and the fine arts. Professor Kenneth J. Huenink came to Florida Memorial in the fall of 1959, and un- til his departure in the summer of 1971 he played an important part in many areas. He became director of the choir and earned it a real reputation throughout the state. He also taught German, Contemporary Culture, and Fine Arts. He was an artist in every sense of the word. For years he was conductor of the St. Augustine Symphony Orches- tra. His fine singing voice and his playing on the cello brought him acclaim. Professor Huenink served as acting dean of the college for many years. He also was the inventor of a new department in General Education called the MOTIVE Program. Jle secured government funding for this and many other ventures. He was a guiding genius in planning the new campus here. Professor Huenink holds the Bachelor of Arts Degree from Carroll College in Wis- consin, his home state. He also holds both the Bachelor ' s and Master ' s Degree in Music from the University of Cincinnati. Shortly after leaving F.M.C., he was awarded the Doctorate in Education form Florida State University. Dr. Jesse Silverglate Social Science Dept. MEMORIUM Professor Karl V. Marecek Ph.D., LL. D., Sc. Polit. D 1901-1974 Dr. Marecek joined the college faculty in 1966 in St. Augustine and continued until his death, 7 December 1974, as an outstanding scholar, true gentleman and warm hearted friend of students and faculty alike. Born in Czechosvakia in 1901 and was educated in Bohemia and Austria then gradu- ated from Charles University, with a doctorate in law and economics. He had a distin- guished career in both journalism and public service in his native republic. As the total- itorian forces increased he was in the forefront of the battle for freedom for manv vears. Dr. Marecek spoke about contemporary history from the vantage point of an actor in it. He had been home with kings, cardinals, generals, presidents and dictators. In 1948 he and his family was forced to leave his native land and live in the United States per- manently. Prior to that he had received the degree of Doctor of Political Science at Paris. This learned professor wrote many books, countless articles and was fluent in English, French, German, Russian, Polish, and Slovak, in addition to his native tongue Czeh. In this country he lectured widely and taught at several colleges and universities. At Georgetown University he received the Ph.D. in Diplomacy. Here at Florida Memorial he was the perfect example of the cultured gentleman; he had a pleasing personality and a good sense of humor. In spite of a life full of harrowing experiences he was able to give fair and unbiased views of the men and movements making history in this century. With his three earned doctorates and his long experience of wingling with the great on familiar terms, he always remained a humble person, and a dedicated teacher. He greatly enriched the knowledge and lives of those he touched here at this college. His name should continue to be held in honor for what he did and what he was. Bv Walter Hampshire Lest We Forget The graduating senior, proud and determined, boldly steps into the impersonal and competitive world eager to assume his role as a contributing member of society. For many years Florida Memorial, being a four years lib- eral arts college, has been instrumental in the shaping of the lives of thousands of young people who have entered its doors and have graduated from there. The experiences at this institution, whether they be academic or social, play an im- portant part in determining the extent that its graduates are successful in their post-graduate endeavors. The record shows that many Florida Memorial College graduates HA VE become successful in their chosen careers and HAVE become functioning members of their communities. Perhaps, in some small way, this college has been respon- sible for the success that they now experience. Therefore, the alumni should never forget the institution from which they graduated— an institution that undoubtedly assumed a major role in the shaping of their lives. Florida Memorial College has witnessed the graduation of thousands of students most of whom have never revisited the campus or contributed financially or otherwise to its up- keep. The reason for this lack of interest may vary from one individual to another; but whatever the reason is this college is suffering because of it. A strong Alumni Association brings forth strong, constructive ideas that would definitely contrib- ute to the progress of the college. By the same token, a weak Alumni Association retards the growth of its Alma Mater. Harold Taylor once described a student as a " person who is learning to fulfill those powers and to find ways of using them in the service of mankind. " Florida Memorial College needs its alumni ' s service, help, and contributions. Florida Memorial College students learn to fulfill their potential now that potential must be used to help Florida Memorial College.

He is a native of Winston Salem, North Carolina, born March 15, 1912. He ' s an ordained minister of the Baptist Church. Dr. Puryear has been both a dedicated, hardworking Christian, and an educator who has com- mitted his life to the uplifting and development of youth through academic and moral guidance. During the course of his life ' s work he has received numerous high honors and awards from various groups, organization and institutions; all of which have been eager and proud to express their apprecia- tion for the valuable contributions which he has made to his fellow man. Combining the fire and zeal of an old time Baptist Country Preacher; the proficiency and expertise of a competent and diligent administrator and teacher and the wisdom and foresight of a loyal father and leader, Dr. Puryear has paved the way for many deserving and underprivileged black youth seek- ing to raise the quality of life for themselves and their communities. Clearly, it is the work of men such as Dr. Royal W. Puryear that has enabled us to come as far as we have; and it is men of his moral standing and professional caliber that will be necessary for the great work that is yet to be done . . .

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Anthony Moses Porter, Vice-Pres- ident of the SGA was born to Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Porter on August 23, 1954 and is the third of eight children. He graduated from Twin Lakes High School in 1972. He is a social studies major and a member of Alpha Phi Omega and Phi Beta Sijmia Fraternities. Originally, Moses had not planned to attend college but he received a scholarship from the sheriff depart- ment which enabled him to attend FMC. What impressed Moses most about FMC was that it was one of only three black institutions in Florida, he wanted to play his part in helping it grow. Moses along with the SGA is trying to better our school security wise, academically and socially. In response to complaints and criticism from students, he states " Students complain, but they don ' t offer suggestions. " " ' Moses would like to see frater- nities sororities get together. He feels they could play a major role in campus unity. After completing college he plans to attend graduate school in Atlanta for his masters degree in social stud- ies or counseling. His message to Florida Memorial students " If all students stopped complaining and did somet FMC would be a better place to be.

Brown President of the Mens Senate 124 Organizations FALSELY ACCUSED Freddie Lee Pitts and Wilbert Lee are still l eing held in our Florida State Prison even though another man, Curtis Adams, Jr., has confessed to the brutal slayings of which they were convicted. In 1963 the two innocent black men were sentenced to death for the murder of two gas station attendants in Port St. Joe, Fla. Since that time a number of facts have sur- faced which strongly indicate that Pitts and Lee are not only innocent, but that they have not received fair trials in either Gulf County (first trial) or in Jack- son County (second trial). There has never been one shred of physical evi- dence introduced by the State to support its charges against Pitts and Lee. No fingerprints of the deceased men were found in Pitts ' car. No fingerprints of Pitts or Lee were found on the cash register which was bro- ken into the night of the murders. No weapons or proceeds from the robbery were clothing connecting them with the crime. There are several people who have testified that the " confessions " of Pitts and Lee were obtained only after they had been beaten in jail. The main witness for the prosecution, Willie Mae Lee, has repeatedly changed her testimony. In 1968 the State suppressed the evidence of a tape recording in which she changed her testimony implicating Pitts and Lee and she had admitted that she had lied be- cause the police threatened her severely. UPDATED FACTS A. 12,000 signatures were collected requesting justice for Pitts and Lee. B. The son of one of the murdered victims, Jessie Burkett, wrote to Governor Askew saying that he believed the State had made a mistake in con- victing Pitts and Lee. C. The present appeal has been under litigation for 13 months. D. Amnesty International collected 6,000 signatures throughout Europe demanding the release of Pitts and Lee. E. The Governor has seen fit to begin an investiga- tion into this case but, even though it has been several months, the results of this investigation have not been made public. F. On the 7th of January rallies were held in Talla- hassee and Miami with the presentation of 10,000 signatures demanding justice for Pitts and Lee to the Governor. A conference on this matter was held during the inauguration with Askew. G. Curtis Adams, Jr. and his lawyer have both stated that Curtis would testify to the crime if he were granted immunity from this charged. (Adams is al- ready serving a life sentence for another murder committed shortly after the Port St. Joe murders.) But the State says they have their criminals, Pitts and Lee, at the same time refusing to grant the immunit y. H. Curtis Adams ' girlfriend was not allowed to testify that Adams confessed the murders to her. I. The Army CD was banned from entrance to the jail when they attempted to investigate the Pitts and Lee case.

Thus being named The Alpha Phi Alpha Frat Inc. Founded on the prin- ciples of Manly Deeds, Scholarship and Love for all mankind. With its be- ginning on the Campus of Cornell Uni- versity, Alpha now exists on every ac- credited college in the country as well as in Africa, Germany, Canada, Viet- nam, Jamacia, Nassau Bahamas. Even though colleges focus on the undergraduate, we must at this time pay tribute to the founder of the Delta Psi Chapter President Emeritus Flor- ida Memorial College Dr. Royal Wen- dell Puryear, who in 1954 brought Al- pha Phi Alpha to the campus of F.M.C. And every year since they have received the Academic Award of hav- ing the highest academic average on campus. In celebrating our 20th Anniversary together and his retirement, we say: To a few, he is the castle of Dreams, am- bitious, successful, hopeful dreams. To many he is the poetic palace where hu- man feeling is rhymed to celestial fel- lowship. In fact, he is the college of friendship; the university of Brotherly love; the school for the better making of man. He is ALPHA PHI ALPHA!

Outside the hot, lively gymnasium where delegates from more than 500 black churches " Amen- ed " as preacher after preacher delivered heated pleas for more money. Harper apolo- gized that his church missed its goal of $1,000. " FLORIDA MEMORIAL is an extension of the church, " he explained. " Education is our mission. " Their mission Wednesday was to hi save Florida Memorial. The almost-all-bla school, founded in St. Augustine 96 ye ago and moved to a new campus at 15$ NW 52nd Ave in 1968, is in serious financ trouble, its leaders freely admit. On taking office in February, the R ' Robert Wilson, chairman of the colleg board of trustees, said Florida Memor needed $700,000 to stay in business. The problems, the t college ' s official 1 stem from several sources — reduced givi by the black churches that have supporl it, failure of many students to pay t u; ti inability to sell the old St. Augustine ca pus, and others. WEDNESDAY, Dr. Wilson chastised I congregation for talking instead of givii " Speeches aren ' t enough, " said the pastor St. John Baptist Church in Dallas, Tex.

Officials from FMC have said that the campus needs $250,000 by the end of this fiscal year which ends in June, to tidy up their immediate financial difficulties. The East Coast Baptist Association last week appointed O Save FMC Committee to help raise funds for the 96-year- old black college which has always been supported by churches. The most urgent need of the campus is a $100,000 debt otyed to the Internal Revenue Service. The Baptist Association hopes, to raise this sum by March 7 and plans to have a convention of ministers in Orlando on that date. It) is hoped that by that time they will have pledges from 100 churches and will be able to pay the IRS debt. Beyond the March 7 date, the SAVE a convention here at jthe campus in hopes of raising the rest of the $250,000 goal, aec rding to the chairman of the commitee, Rev. C. J. Walter, of Bethel Baptist Church of Richmond Heights. Rev. Billy Baskdn of First Baptist of Bunche Park and Rev}. I. C. Mickens are co-chairmen. The committee has already received pledges from 15 local churches and two other branches of the Association have agreed to join in the fight to save FMC. Both the Florida Atlantic Coast Baptist Association, moderated by Rev. L. A. Thompson, and the Seaboard Baptist Association, Rev. W. H. Edwards, moderator, have endorsed the campaign and announced that they will appoint a committee to raise funds for the college. The main thrust of that campaign is that if each Baptist wOuld donate $10 they will be able to save the campus. The churches which have already pledged are Memorial Baptist Church, pastor, Rev. I. C. Mickens; Bethel Baptist, pastor, Rev. Charles Walker; First Baptist of Bunche Park, pastor Rev. Billy Baskin; Macedonia Baptist Church, pastor, Rev. Phillip Cooper; St. John Baptist Church, pastor, Rev. Thedford Johnson; Mt. Calvary, pastor Rev. Samuel Atchison; St. Luke, Rev. P. W. Williams; Mt. Olivette, Rev. Thomas McCloud; Antioch, pastor, J.

" Businesslike, scholarly Wilson, though, : just a teaser for the main event, an in- 5ely taunting appeal by the Rev. Wyatt Walker, pastor of Harlem ' s Canaan itist Church of Christ. Walker, reputed oe one of the best moneyraisers among :k churchmen nationwide, was Martin her King ' s chief of staff from 1960-1964. After a dramatic readin ' g of 1 Kings 17:1, Iker launched into his -own version of Ahab, by allowing the king ' s daughter seduce him, fell out of God ' s favor. The ience alternately fanned, clapped and »hed. But they never took their eyes off gyrating, shouting speaker. THIRTY MINUTES into his plea, Walker down to business. " I ' m going to tell you Florida Memorial is in the shape it ' s in. in the shape it ' s in, " he said, pausing, because black folks have been so nig- dly and stingy with God! " As he spoke, Florida Memorial officials sat under ' the podium behind adding ma- chines, ready to tally the piles of bills and checks. It wofked. After three hours of praying, singing, the preachers ' pleas, leaders of the two black Baptist church groups in Florida started col- lecting money from their delegates. Church by church, cluB by club, they added it up. $102,435.44 in bills, coins and checks. Although " Redemption Day " hadn ' t paused even to let the delegates eat the food they ' d brought, Dr. Wilson told them that wasn ' t enough. " How much more could they pledge to give within 30 days? " he asked. The two church group leaders said their churches, which total about 1,100, would give another $90,000. Individual churches pledged another $10,000, and the limp, hun- gry delegates were finally allowed to leave the folding wooden chairs, the immediately necessary $200,000 either in hand or on the way.
