The Ayeni staff of 1931, wishing to add picturesque romance to its year-book, has chosen a no less romantic and legendary race from which to build its theme than that of the American Indian. In order that our readers will the better appreciate our elTorts, we implore each to seek some remote corner, banish the cares of the day, and imagine himself in a far-away Indian pueblo as he scans the pages of our year-book. See in the story of this year's labors that of a remote Indian tribe guided by a great and powerful chieftain toward greater service for itself and others. See our faculty, as the pensive and grave council, kneeling about the feet of the chieftain smoking the proverbial pipe, while matters of life and death are being decided upon. See in the graduating class a picture of handsome and stalwart young warriors anxious to set forth upon the battle-field, where they may prove the valor of their tribe. See the under- classmen as the group of the tribe which must stay at home to till the soil and protect the pueblo from all assaults. See in our practice school the attentive mother squaws caring for the little pappooses. See in our organization the development of tribal pride and keen, competitive sportsmanship. See in our departments of music, art, and gymnastics the crude expressions of the tribe in color, dances for varied festivities, and appreciation for the beauties of nature. But through it all see the embodiment of life-life full of color, tone, and harmony. just as the Indian weaves his rug each thread in predeter- mined harmony with the other, so see the departments of our institution woven together in one harmony of purpose-preparing men for service. y. ffgwfzffffifvf ipgffff ,7 f i 3 5 - -if :bs:r,ggi1, 4,Y9 'NPI' Q gait- gi .1 .-.1 1 1 -:V . : ze: MEFFZLQ L IJUBQQ -.. as 4 F' llllllll l l lllll l L-2- s A Resume of the Scholastic Year 1930131 The nineteenth regular session of Tennessee Agricultural and Industrial State College began Monday, September 29, with the enrollment ofnearly a thousand students. The largest faculty in the school's history was assembled to carry forward the expanded program. The institution offered for the first time a four-year curriculum for elementary teachers leading to the B.S. degree. Plans were on foot for the erection of four major buildings across the Boulevard from the present campus, at an estimated cost of flB600,000. Features such as a new athletic field for football, baseball, and track, and an eighteen hole miniature golf course and new tennis courts greeted the student body. The fall quarter was marked with unusual enthusiasm and spirit because of the high hopes of the "Tigers", brought on by the selection of T. D. Upshaw, 1928 all-Southern guard, as coach. Though the "Tigers" wdre not always victorious, they showed superior playing and sportsmanship over pre- vious years. In the annual Thanksgiving classic before a record-breaking crowd of loyal alunmi and football enthusiasts, the "Tigers" held the mighty Fisk "Bulldogs" to a 13-O score on the State College gridiron and completely upset the dope as to the caliber of the "Tigers", The "Tigers" selected Mr. Thomas Withrow, a four-year varsity star, as the man who contributed most for the success of the Thanksgiving game and therefore eligible to receive the gold football pre- sented by the Sigma Phi Psi club. On Thanksgiving night the music department, under the direction of Miss Marie J. Brooks, pre- sented "A Southern Fantasy." This musicale most vividly pictured the humble yet colorful life of the southern negro down on the levy. The stars of the cast were Mr. Lilbert Ferguson as "Mose", Miss I. B. Strange as "Mammy", Mr. Simon W. Walker as "jim", and Miss Avis Hatcher as "Lindy", Education Week, November 10-14, was sponsored by the Rural Education club under the direction of Mrs. F. A. Sanders. . The outstanding chapel speaker for the fall quarter was Dr. Howard Thurman, chaplain of More- house and Spellman Colleges in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Thurman's eloquent and thought provoking message was "VVhat is Man?" His closing lines alone called for more thought than one would imagine in so few words: "What Am I? I know not, but when I am most myself I know that I am the son of God". Our most honorable president, W. 1. Hale, was absent from the campus November 17-21, when he presided over the conference of Land-Grant Presidents, which met in Washington, D. C., in the department of the interior and Howard University. While absent he also attended the VVhite l-louse conference on Child Welfare, to which he was invited by President Hoover and commissioned as one of Tennessee's representatives by Governor Henry Horton. The third Sunday speakers for October and November respectively were Dr. VV. S. Ellington, pastor of the First Baptist Church, East Nashville, and the Reverend john Knox, chaplain of Fisk University. The events of the fall quarter were brought to a most impressive close by the presentation of a sacred Christmas cantata by the music departments. The student body and faculty returned from the Christmas holidays with a greater zest for harder work and indeed, as has the whole year been marked, the quarter showed a greater and higher per cent. of scholarship as well as the most cooperative student body of all previous years. A very successful and enthusiastic basketball season was made more effective by the purchasing of a school bus, which carried our players to various points in and out of the state. Not only was the basketball team played up by means of thebus but the various other departments were as well. CCOIIUZIZZIFII on Page SJ . fwwwwf fffffffv ' 011111, '71, lg R 5 Xe? :b .

However, the charming Miss Alberta Franklin of the Sigma Phi Psi club and Mr. Cain Lee of the Supreme Circle club won first places. Miss Lizzie D. Young, soprano, accompanied by Miss Marie J. Brooks, appeared in a most artistic recital january 23. Miss Young was assisted by Miss Laura Mae Edmunds, who gave a group of piano numbers. The dramatic club presented several one-act plays in this as well as other quarters. Some of the plays given were "Dregs", with Mrs. Lucille Scott as "Moll", Mr. Russell Osby as.-"jim", Mr. William Crawley and Mr. Taylor Thomas as detectives, "Hunger", with Mr. Charles Neal as the "Beggar", Miss Mildred Robinson as "Poetess", Mr. Gale Chambers as the "Man", and Miss Sara B. Sublett as the "Girl"g "The Reference", with Miss La Leta Lee as "Miss Edgecomben, Mr. Ned Rawls as f'Philip Somers", and Miss Margaret Taylor as "Olivia Chillingworth"g and "All the VVorld Loves a Lover", with Mr. Levi Watkins, Miss Avis Hatcher, Miss Doris Hill, Miss Nelda McLinn, and Miss Eloise Bacon taking star places. National Drama Week, February 9-13, was observed on the campus under the auspices of the Dramatic Club. Two of the main features were the minstrel presented Wednesday night and "An Eye for an Eye", a one-act play written by Russell K. Osby. 1 The third Sunday speakers for january and February were Rev. G. W. Lewis of Clark Memorial M. E. Church, and Rev. E. W. D. Isaac, secretary of the B. Y. P. U. Publishing Board. The events of the winter quarter came to a dramatic close when the Delta Tau Iota club presented a colorful musical revue, "Good Morning Glory" on March 6. The spring quarter was marked with an array of color and song as the season of the school year for the many proms and club festivals in the form of night clubs, rose-tea gardens, beach parties, and block dances. However, this quarter was not entirely given over to frivolity. One cf the outstanding events of the school year was the appearance of our most honored Congress- man Oscar De Priest of Chicago, Illinois, in chapel March 16. Mr. De Priest made a most impressive plea for the negro youth of America not to assist in any communistic movements. The jeanes Workers of Tennessee and neighboring states held a conference on the college campus March 24. The second annual conference of the New Farmers of Tennessee also convened on the campus. The music department presented "Opera versus jazz" March 27, so very effectively that the audience could not decide which class of music it preferred. This was the last appearance of the music department as a whole, and it proved a very fitting climax. The college orchestra, better known as "Don Q and his Collegians", received a regular engagement as guest artists of NVLAC every Thursday afternoon from 5:45 to 6:00 P.M. The concert group of the music department made several good-will tours over the country. Programs were given at Murfreesboro, Tennesseeg Talladega, Tuskegee Institute, Alabamag State Normal, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and in West Virginia. National Music VVeek was observed in the form of a music festival May 4-7. The various groups of the department were played up in artistic recitals throughout the week. The Agricultural club sponsored Rural Betterment VVeek, March 23-27. Health XfVeek, April 5-12, was sponsored by the college health department and the Supreme Circle club. Phi Beta Tau, honorary scholastic organization, was reorganized along the lines ot' Phi Beta Kappa, admitting to membership only those students in the junior and senior years whose scholastic averages qualify them for graduation "cum laude". The physical education department carried out some very unusual features for its annual May- day exhibit. Frivolity and Class Distinction days were observed by the senior class in May. Baccalaureate exercises were solemnized May 31, with the Right Reverend Thomas F. Gailor, bishop of the diocese of Tennessee, as speaker. The Commencement address was delivered june 2, by Dr. Ullin Leavell, professor of education at George Peabody Teachers' College. The senior class consisted of one hundred candidates for the B.S. degree.

Because through ealm, unrest and strife You've always thrashed out wrong with right Proving yourself a man. You've been our guardian all the while, Advising us with words so mild, When oft we act so rude. And even when our errs brought pain, Not once did you dress us in the mantle of shame, Always you lent us a hand. You've spent sleepless hours and restless nights Trying to make our future bright, By putting in our hands a plan- Teaching us always to Think, NVorlc and Serve Vifhether it takes grit, courage or nerve- Anything we will to do, we can. Although this shows not our appreciation for you, It does let you know we are thinking of you And what you have done for us. That we feel that you, as a leader, are best And in due time will lead us up the steps to success- On our feet then, we'll stand. -PHINETTA A. BAKER, '31 y.

L1-'FE T s--- The Ayeni CNVith apologies to Spraguej Turn to the Ayeni-its teeming pages survey, Big with the wonders of each passing day, Resumes, wills and histories, faculty and board of education Departments, classes and organizations, snapshots and pictures of all descriptions, A, and I. hardly deems the busy year is done, Till its keen eye along the Ayeni has rung The dignified senior throws her dignity by And reads the past year's activities with a sigh While the grave faculty puts its glasses on And gives a censure or a tribute for every Word thereon. The juniors, sophomores, and the freshmen, too, Turn the pages o'er and o'er to get each angle and view, And when the leaves of this Ayeni are yellow from age, There'll be a smile and a tear for every treasured page. The Ayeni Staff Due to the willing application to this pleasant task, supplemented by the journalistic, creative, and artistic ability of the Ayeni staiif, a work of ART has been performed. What is ART but TRUTH? And since this book be true, how can it be anything but arta The Ayeni yearbook of 1931 needs no explanationg its purpose is to give photographs and printed memories to cherish in the years to come. It is a picture of how the scholastic year of 1931 has been spent. The sponsor and adviser of the Ayeni staff, Dean G. XV. Core, is one who has sure, sound, practical experience, and a superior knowledge. Of the sixteen members of the official Ayeni staff only four are from out of the state. The editor- in-chief hails from Bristol and a man of no mean ability. His assistant, Miss Eddean Morris of Owensboro, Ky., has led her class for four consecutive years. The advertising manager, Mr. Ned Rawls of Brownsville, and his assistant, Mr. Frank Orndorff of Russellville, Ky., with the business manager, Mr. Clinton Derricks of Chattanooga, and his assistant, Mr. Lee Roy Ferguson of Clarksville, have proved that they shall be successful business men by their outstanding work. Mr. james Ripley Taylor, of Ripley, speaks and writes a language of the gridiron, the tennis and basketball court, the track and the baseball diamond. In short, he is the athletic editor. The etiicient artists are Mr. James Mayberry, art editor, of Nashvilleg Mr. Everett Ricks, Raleigh, N. C.: Mr. James Adams and Miss Phinetta Baker, of Nashville, assistants, affirm that an Ayeni without real art is incomplete. Wliat is a yearbook without its pictures and photographs? VVith them it is a treasure untold. The photograph editor is Miss F. Bernice Conyers, of Cartersville, Ga., and her assistant, Miss Georgia jenkins, Nashville. The copy editor, Miss Gennie Morgan, Knoxville, and her assistant, Miss Myrtle Roberts, of Clarks- ville, complete the Ayeni staff of 1931. On April 3, 1931, Miss Phinetta Baker entertained with a formal dinner and dance, the olificial staff of the Ayeni. The menu was delicious, consisting of grape fruit macedone, chicken pate, petit pois a la prinlaniere, sweet potato puree, jardiniere salad, cranberry aspic a la orange, ice cream and cake. For a brief while the stalT put away their cares and heavy responsibilities and every one had a gorgeous time. The stat? does not say that it has worked and toiled although that is quite possible, but because of the joy and delight it has received from this task, work ceased to be work and became a pleasure. - 1 1 gf: g g -Axfiasiistgsg kgs pair: - ---- -4- 4 -W Q..

JOHNSON, Historianj CHAPTER I As time is fast approaching for the class of '31 to leave its Alma Mater of preparation, we look back across the short span of her care and keeping with untold regret. The four years spent in rigid training to row our own little canoes out of the harbor, where the current is gentle, peaceful and calm, though hard it might have been, we now appreciate its worth and think of the many happy events in which we shall not be again permitted to participate and the many friends we must leave behind to take our places in an institution which is yet in its infancy. - We cannot soon forget the beginning of the school year 1927, when about 125 of us in a "Comedy of Errors", arrived in Nashville, some for the first time, to gaze upon the beauty of the Athens of the South. Nevertheless, it belongs to a future day to assemble a more ambitious bunch. The dignity and grace with which we moved about for those first few days is seldom imitated-that is, when we were left alone long enough by those upper class savages who made campus life so miserable. Though unusually brilliant, we were being constantly reminded during that first year by the pro- fessor who was to teach us what college was all about, who was also our faculty adviser, that we were in college-for us to keep cool, calm and collected and do away with that small-town idea. Mr. S. E, jones was elected president of the class, Fred Xvhalem, vice-presiclentg Miss S. E. Totty, secretaryg and an honest looking country boy whom we later learned to call Cheairs, was selected to hold the treasure. , The most important social event as a direct project of the class was the prom, where many of us learned to move somehow to the rhythm of music. CHAVFER II As the second year of college life unfolds itself, the one in which there was much "Much Ado About Nothing", we had learned something of what college was all about, and made a specialty in showing freshmen where they belonged. The class officers were the same officials as of our freshman vear. H It was during this year that we began to feel our importance, so here and there from among us several members distinguished themselves. In football jones, Porter, and Brown were counted with the stars: the musical ability of Miss Eddean Morris, Miss Edith Crawford, Miss Helyne Carter and Wfilliam Frierson is certainly to be commended by all and desired by no few. The oratorical ability of Mr. Scott Clayborne, jr., the campus minister, who made himself famous for the'cool way in which he conducted campus funerals, would possibly make the bones of Plato tremble. The two outstanding projects looked forward to were the Freshman-Sophomore football clash and the prom. The game was fought hard but demonstrated that superior brains win in a 13-U victory while the prom was the talk of the campus. CHAPTER III The "Midsummer Night's Dream" of our college career was the third year, in which our departure from the 'fComedy of Errors" had taken us. We had pride in our achievement and faith in ourselves to the extent that we believe no junior in the history of our institution had been our equal. Ned Rawls was elected president of the class, T. Clinton Derricks, vice-presidentg Miss Bernice Conyers, secretary, and William Lacy, treasurer. lNe took pride in boasting that the girls of that class were the most beautiful of the hill, and usually thought of them as they gracefully moved about the campus in comparison with that being who treads the walks of fancy's Eden-queens of beauty unadorned save by their own transcending loveliness. Cain Lee was called the campus butterfly because he could not keep a girl long, while Clarence Crook and George Newbcrn became so bound in their heaven of love that they chose to live in a little cottage to that of college. CHAPTER IV Having left the low valter paths of crabdom we begin our last year by doing only those things which become those who have successfully found enough favor in Dean Gore's sight to be called seniors. These years have been both pleasant and hard, in that we have been permitted to partake of those things which go with college life, and hard, we think, because of the routine and system. It yet re- mains to be known who shall leave this fountain of knowledge where we all have been permitted to drink deeply. "All's NVell that Ends NVell" shall be our philosophy in the few short paces which separate us from the goal for which we are striving. - XVith W. J. Hale, jr., as class presidentg T. Clinton Derricks, vice-president, efficient Miss Samuella Totty as secretary, and Ned Rawls, as treasurer, we feel that our class program shall be unexcelled and that the Dean and President will demonstrate that they have a heart when credit hours become minutes.

We'll make our voyage, go our heights, No obstacle our pace will cheek: Until we come within the sight Of a new and shiny deck. Then we'll remember old A. and I.g Its motto, "Think, lNork and Serve", And send our thanks to Him on high, This motto, He helped us preserve. Dear Alma Mater, the time has come, Thy sacred walls to leave, Protect the class of '31, ' ' In thee we'll always believe.

In June, l928, the flood-gates of the various high schools opened, sending forth streams of graduates to be swallowed up by various colleges and by the world in general. By October 1, 300 of these students had entered as freshmen at Tennessee State Collegel Can we ever forget the first glimpse of the campus? It was a strange place, and yet even at first sight we were sure that we would be happy here. Of course, some of us were very beautiful and some were not so fortunate. Very ignorant as we were, we went about to adjust ourselves to the collegiate life, which was so different from that of high school. The first incident we had to face was the standing for hours in the line to register. After we finished registering and holding conferences with Dean Gore for the first day, most of us had a bad conception of college. Wife were given the little meal book, and as we went to get our first meal were halted by the long line in the cafeteria. At the end of the tirst week quite a few heart-broken letters were sent home describing the activities of college. Rules and regulations we had never dreamed existed became a part of our lives. Classes that we had feared because of their apparent difficulties soon became a joy rather than a burden. But all the people with whom we had thought we never would be able to strike up even a mere speaking acquaintance became our closest friends. Then, too, the first month of collegiate life was spent in pain and excitement, as the upper classmen were introducing us to college life. Later in the year we became Organized, and started on our big prom for the sophomores, which was very successful. In our sophomore year only two hundred fifty of us survived, as the other fifty decided to take matrimonial degrees. Wie had a delightful year, and every one looked up to us as we were the wisest. Vile sponsored "several" plays and social functions. Now as we go on our way to the land of promise under the leadership of Mr. George XVashington Brooks, we are encleavoring to bedeck our history with honors not only in the classroom but On the gridiron, in dramatics, literary societies, HY" work and social functions. Wie know that we are great. There are only One hundred thirty-four of us now, and we hope to keep this number. Vife are on the verge of deciding the kind of prom we will give the seniors, Look Out, folks, dOn't get jealous! Vi'e are only anticipating a bright and honorable future.

We've reached our year of sophistication: Through the "Crab" year of complaint, Through upper-classrnen admiration, XfVe feel as though we're what we ain't. And are we wise? 1'll say, and how! Why, Socrates would hide in shame To know how much we are endowed, To see his name bereft of fame By us, we lesser mortals, now his superior. Though only Sophs, how much we know, And smile as "Crabs", our own inferior, In spite of all, their ignorance show. .s..g..-. Every lesson learned, we've pairlg None, I'm sure. we've intentionally missed. All the higher grades we've made, Leaving "Crabs" the lower grade list. And, Juniors, surely there's some mistake, Your "hazing" has been mended. Our spirits were too tough to break If that's what you intended. We'll strive to conquer through threateningdoubtsand fears: VVe'll strive to live a life each new-born day, And make a name for A. and I. through the years, And such valiant. deeds that will not fade away. So now we near the culmination Of our sophisticated college yearg To old State College, our inspiration, VVe will our deeds, with loads of cheers.

On September 29, 1930, as did many such Wanderers of yore, we the present Freshman class, heard her clarion call, and came south to partake of her bounteous legacies. VVe, at first, like the newly adopted members of a large family, were possessed of the spirit of uncertainity and unrest. But as time passed on we became orientated and felt quite at home within our fraternal circle. NVe were welcomed into the various organizations of the school, and many of our class became outstanding members of the seasonal activities. First came football in all her pomp and glory, that drew our classmates into the field of battle on the gridiron. Those who participated were Drake, McKnight, Perkins, Robinson, Beasley, Carter, Newbern, Baxter, Harris and Thomas. I Second came basket-ball with its whirl of action and thrilling delight, that called into the lime- light Young, better known as "Paps"g Cumbraugh and honorable "jack" McKnight, Drake, Perkins, Thomas, Covington and the long-shot expert Mathis. The third fascinating feature of our athletic series was baseball, that claimed our boys as champions upon the diamond, and these warriors are: Roberson, Drake, Thomas, Pullens, Stribling, McKnight, Perkins, Harris and Carter. The college has been awe-stricken by the discovery of such outstanding talent. In both the athletic world and realm of fine arts, we the members of our class have shown possibilities in the last-named endeavors. In music we find accomplished pianists, Christina Barlow and Minnie Harrisg our lyric baritone, Lilbert Ferguson and the crooning bass, Alex Carney. As our musical world expanded, we also participated in Drama, where we also displayed unusual talent to our student body. Wlithin this class, we find an amateur playwriter, Russell Osbyg a light- footed tap dancer, Taylor Thomasg and a second Marie Dressler, Romayne Spriggs, and other members of our class such as Emma Barbee, Sara Sublett, Mildred Robinson, Allyn Gibson, Thomas Howard, Richard North and others who have not had the advantage of appearing in public. The school orchestra is composed of nearly all freshmen, and of whom we are very proud to mention Don Q. Pullen, who is a master in tickling the ivory: Batey, a soothing saxophonistg Burton, the alluring cornetist, and Hightower, the commanding trap player. The freshman class stands as an example of renewed strength and improvement. VX-'e have settled the wave of unrest and have plunged deeper into the realms of achievement and success. NVe hope to abridge the gulf that lays between the various classes and that as we nestle in the outstretched arms of A. and I. we will become more worthy of her bounteous legacies and she will be proud that we settled within her fold. .

Life itself is a stage, XVe and our fellow comrades answer many curtain calls and adjust ourselves to various roles. The study of drama helps us to perceive the motives actuating the human behavior of the members of our casts. lt helps us judge character and strengthens our ability to pre- sent our thoughts agreeably and effectively to our audiences. During "National Drama VVeek", February 8-16, the following playsg "The Dreamy Kid", "The Reference", "Dregs", "Hunger", "lVIamma's AH'air", and a very lively minstrel and an Original pro- duction, "An Eye for An Eye", were presented in Chapel. The One-Act Play Contest staged during the week of April 27th-May lst, consists of the following plays: "The Undercurrent", "Coral Beads", "The Blind", and "The Blue Vase." ' The plays for the Commencement season are as follows: "East Lynn", "The Strongest Man" and "Spot Cash". VVe have been called to out-of-town appointments for the entertainment of other schools, and have enjoyed the hospitality and good-will shown us on these trips.

History of Kappa Alpha Psi The Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity was founded at Indiana University, January 5, 1911. Of the ten men who met for the purpose of organizing this fraternity, the names of Elder VV. Diggs, Bryon K. Armstrong, and john M. Lee are best remembered. They are directly responsible for the organization of the second Greek Letter fraternity among Negroes. Elder W. Diggs and Bryon K. Armstrong had formerly attended Howard University, where they saw the benefits to be derived from a wholesome fraternal relationship with one's friends. At Indiana University, they were made to realize more than ever the benefits to be derived from a unifying organiza- tion. VVith this in mind, they set about formulating plans for such an organization, the result of which was the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Thus, Indiana became the home of the Alpha Chapter-in other words, the "Mother Chapter" of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Kappa Alpha Psi has adopted for its national program a guide-right movement, which has as its purpose the helping of the High School boy and to find his place in the occupational world and to enter some sphere of usefulness as a member of his community and nation. Kappa Alpha Psi members throughout the nation keep in touch with one another through the medium of the Kappa Alpha Psi journal, the only Negro College Fraternity monthly in the world. Through its pages Kappa men receive constant inspiration for the achievement of scholarship, character and the ideals of true manhood for which the fraternity stands.

The Kentucky Club The Kentucky Club was organized in the fall of 1926 by a group of young people from the Blue- grass State who had come to the Tennessee Agricultural and Industrial College in a search for knowledge.

They came together for the purpose of creating ' ' ' ' h l hi and hi her ideals. greater interest among Kentucky students and an enthusiasm for service, sc o ars p g To the founder, Mrs. G. W. Gore, goes tribute for this brain-child, which has grown into a thriving, alert organization. This year has been one of the best w ici e c u ' . embarked on this journey under the leadership of Mr. Charles A. Dowdy, a member of the senior class. I-Ie has succeeded in adding fresh impetus to the interest of the old members of the organization and inspiring the new comers with zeal and enthusiasm, which shows that they have indeed caught the spirit h' l th l b has witnessed during its entire history We of our motto, "To cooperate and to excel . 'In our semi-monthly meetings we strive to give the members something of benefit to them. Topics of current issue are discussed, and the give and take of the group serves as a splendid mental tonic. It keeps them alert and well versed on what the world is doing. This is necessary, as we are ' - ' ' ' ' ' nd clouding our horizons with prone to shut ourselves up in a miniature world, limiting our visions a petty matters when really worth while issues pass unnoticed.

For many years State men were taken into Delta chapter at Meharry Medical College. Among the first State College men to become Omegas were Dr. Reginald Neblett, Broughton Jones, Prof. J. H. White and James Nance. In 1927, an Omega chapter was established at Fisk University. State men then began to file applications for that chapter and among the men to make Omega were Coach T. D. Upshaw, Mr. Alton Jackson and Prof. Julian Belle. Between the years of 1928 and 1930, it was very difficult for any State men to get in any chapter. Realizing the wealth of immaterial On our campus, Prof. J. F. McClellan, President VV. J. Hale, Delta, Gamma Psi and Eta Psi chapters began to take steps toward getting a charter for the Omega men at State College. At that time there were only five Omega men on the campus, not enough to form a chapter. Ned Rawls, James Taylor, Clarence Crook, Charles Sleigh, Leo Chilton and Kurtys Clay were pledged in Eta Psi chapter, Fisk University. In January, Rawls, Taylor and Clay were made into the fraternity. There was immediately formed on this campus an Omega clubg on April 24, 1931, a charter was granted to this club and the chapter was given the name Rho Psi. Its first officers were Ned Rawls, Basilusg George Hale, K. R. S.g Halton XVilliams, R. F., and Kurtys Clay, chapter editor. A pledge club was formed consisting of live members with VV. J. Hale, Jr., as president. These live men were the first to be initiated into Rho Psi. The chapter has progressed wonderfully since its beginning, boasting of the highest scholastic average of any organization on the campus, promoting Negro achievement week and being represented in all of the extra curricula activities on the campus. At present there are nineteen men in the chapter and eleven men in the pledge club. THE CHAPTER PERSONNEL THOMAS WITHROW ..... ................ ....,.. u . . Basilus KURTrs L. C LAY .... ......

SUMMA OMNIBUS Man shall ever in his triumphs Seek to reach the mountain-tops Even though the way be treacherous He doesn't pause, he never stops. Why then shouldn't we on the mountain-side, When nothing in the world can stop us Not reach a place up among the stars VVith faith in the motto Summa Omnibus? Though the band be small and the end far ahead And some exhausted may fall by the way, Life at its best is composed of such- It's the strong that reap at the end of the day. The man who succeeds in the battle of life Places in himself a confident trust And smiles at the world as he continues to climb, Placing faith in a motto like Summa Omnibus. The Supreme Circle club, one of the oldest and most lively organizations of the campus, was founded in 1919 by Mel-larris. It has for a motto "Summa Omnibus" and its slogan is, "Better Men." The club conducts, annually during National Health Week, a health week program on the campus, for the purpose of intensifying interest in cleanliness and showing the important part bacteria play in imparing health. , The club sponsors an annual social event during the year, generally a formal banquet and dance. The quartet, which has done much in the advertisement of the institution and to entertain the student body, is composed of the following: O. A. johnson, lst tenorg Cecil Hardy, 2nd tenor, George Brooks, baritoneg and David Clark, bass. It is hoped that much work will be done by this quartet and that none shall excel it.

Upshaw, with the help of assistant Coach Fletcher "Nick" Turner, started the year with eleven lettermen, Captain Samuel jones, Brown, Withrow, Kincaide, Jordon, Davis, Lee, Hester, Sleigh, Cansler and Cato. All lettermen were declared eligible. So for the most part, the nucleus of the team was centered in the 1929 lettermen. New athletes, namely: jamerson, Thomas, Drake and Baxter, worked well with the "Big Blue and Wl1ite" machine, and gained upper berths with the "Great Tiger" team all eleven. Brilliant offensive and defensive featuring startled our opponents in every snap of the ball. VVith VVithrow, Drake, Baxter and Thomas starring every minute of the games, thrilling fans the entire season, the "Big Blue and White" team outstripped their opponents 81-33 for a Hnal seasonal score. r. 4 v i l i' . l Basketball Record N .,,,f,.s. w Tennessee 35-49-4-1 . ..... .

Opponents 354 ' Tenncssee's Tigers of 1931 were the best cagers to have performed in our gym in 21 years. Every game saw the Tigers return to old-time form that has always been coveted by our opposing teams. With every man performing exceptionally the Tigers romped over all of its opponents with the exception of NV. Kentucky. The Kentuckians by a queer trick of fate, were able to otfset the brilliant attack of the Tigers, causing us to lose both games. Our team performed in all contests like those thrilling basketball games described in story books. Very little green material reported for the '31 basketball squad. Competition for any position was great. Quite a few newcomers, Crumbaugh, Young, Mathis, Drake, -lamerson, and Thomas, made it quite hot for the all-famous varsity Tigers, Frierson and Boyd. The two Kentuckians, however, soon regained their old stride and began setting a new pace for the newcomers. Team play as a whole was greatly improved during '31. Coach 'tNick" Turner's tactics in coaching and substituting brought to us many victories when ofttimes we had been doomed to the cellar by our opposers. Captain elect was the method used the past season. This method will be used the following season, '32. With the Tigers every man has an equal chance for any position and letters as well. l l l l is fzammzffwfvefaffffffvsi .infix A-ss.
