Redmond, Class Adviser. While the 1938 performance brought a capacity attendance, the 1939 performance is expected to exceed that, with standing space at a premium. In addition to the special literary ability and variety of talent, the class is famous for a membership that is not only praiseworthy in the class itself, but also in the entire school, for members of the class serve the school in the following capacities: Manager of School Orchestra, football stars, basketball stars, members of the choir, of the band and of the concert group.

Having groped its way through the mist of obscurity by which we felt ourselves surrounded by High School graduates, we have successfully emerged as fullfiledged Freshmen and thoroughly enjoyed trying our wings in the bright lights of the college curriculum. During the year we have entered the activities with flying colors. The class has contributed literary work, displayed fine arts, exhibited oration, and has given an excellent account of itself in athletic competition. With this record as a foundation, next year's program should be a successful one. Our hope and ambition are that we may be able to take the torch of learning from the Class of '39 and carry it with success throughout the years to come. f30l Q3 Z Zfd Can , ,,' - MM ,i v , . 4 r J ' W .E 1 i 5 I V- x ' J ' ', x A .' , 1 V , , , 1 I 1 l 1 : A , .

Not only does it stress scholarship, but also moral character above reproach, which is so necessary to the making of men and women. Requisites for eligibility to membership are that one shall have done suiiicient work in the institution of such quality that he will be graduated with "cum laude" honors. The historical forerunners of this organization are to be found in the Sais Society and Pi Kappa Nu.

It is the oldest of Negro sororities and its membership has grown from eleven founders to approximately three thousand active members. Cut' standing national projects include the Mississippi Health Project in the field of sociology, the NonfPartisan Lobby in the field of politics, and local, national, and inter' national scholarships given to worthy students in the cause of higher education. Alpha Kappa Alpha was the Hrst fraternal organization to take out a life membership with the N.A.A.C.P. and it also works in conjunction with the Urban League, making great strides in the cause of uplifting the Negro Race. Alpha Psi Chapter was organized at Tennessee State College on May 13, 1932, and from that time to the present has been involved in a saga of campus history, The chapter seeks leadership ability and scholastic attainment. In the seven years of its existence it has presented to the students of the college and citizens of the city of Nashville three Miss Tennessees and an Omega Psi Phi Mardi Gras Queeng Alpha Kappa Alpha women are now presidents of three of the four women's social clubs, of the local chapter of Delta Phi Delta journalistic Fraternity and various departmental clubs of the campus. Its scholarship is exemplified by the fact that of one hundred wom' en members of Phi Beta Tau National Scholastic Fraternity from 1931 to 1939, twentyfseven have been members of Alpha Kappa Alpha-a larger number than has come from any other campus organization. At present four out of twentyftwo mem' bers of Alpha Psi are members of Phi Beta Tau and seven other members are pledgees. Alpha Psi's program for the year includes an annual "WelcomefTofSchool" project which is given to greet old and new students coming to the college at the opening of the school yearg a PrefChristmas Program to spread good will to fellow students prior to the Christmas holidaysg a "Penny Bazaar" to raise funds to help needy families in the vicinity of the collegeg Founder's Day Celebration at which time outstanding members of the organization and the race are presented to the students of the college and the citzens of Nashvilleg and finally, a Spring Prom to prove that among its many attributes is a spirit of sociability. Alpha Psi Chapter plays a vital part in the campus life of A. E? I. State College and is merely a link in the huge chain of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority which strives to uphold ethical standards, Hner womanhood, scholarship, and service to the Negro I'3.CC.

Smith ...Associate Member HISTORY OF DELTA SIGMA TI-IETA SORORITY A meeting on january 14, 1913, in Miner Hall, at Howard University, was the nucleus of the Greek letter organization, later known as the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. The purpose of this meeting was to secure permission of the University authorities and to draw up constitutions and byflaws. On the twentyfsecond day of the same month, the Sorority was formally organized. For almost a year this first chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority lived and grew through additions from the several classes of the university. Alpha Chi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was established on A. and I. Campus, May 15, 1936, with seven young college ladies. Since that time Alpha Chi has grown rapidly in Scholastic and Cultural Achievements. This chapter is nationally known for the presentation of its Annual "jabberwock" which is an imaginary creature, so called because of the many different parts of other animals which are needed to make him suiiiciently fascinating. The proceeds from the jabberwock are awarded in the form of a scholarship to the Freshman young woman having the highest scholastic average for four years of high school work. Miss Elizabeth Douglass of Chattanooga, Tenn., was the recipient of the scholarship in 1937 and Miss Phyliss Falls of Memphis, Tenn., in 1938. Although Alpha Chi is the youngest Greek letter organization on the A. and I. State College campus, the chapter was awarded the silver loving cup by the History Study Club for outstanding cultural contributions for the year 193768. Some of our members who have brought recognition to our chapter are: Miss Dora Farrington, of St. Louis, Missouri, who was elected "Miss Tennessee" and crowned "Queen" of the Mardi Gras of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, and Miss Walker Chavers who was award- cded a scholarship for her outstanding scholastic record by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraterf nity. Some of the honor students of the chapter are, Hazel Suggs, Myriam Richardson, Anethia Barksdale, Frances Wilkins, Marian Robinson, Alice Procter, and Walker Chavers and others. Alpha Chi endeavors to maintain its standards by continuing its social and cultural contributions to the atmosphere of the campus life. To OUR Anvisna-Miss EM T.

It was the iirst of the intercollegiate Greek letter fraternities to be organized by Negroes. Inspirational activities like the "Go to High School-Go to College" and the "Education for Citizenship" movements are fostered annually and scholarship grants are awarded many deserving youths. Twentyffour years later in the year 1934 at Tennessee A. and I. State College seven young leading youths were organized into the Hftyfeighth chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, namely "Beta Cmicronf' Thus this chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha was born on May 12, 1934. It is the youngest fraternity on the campus. Scholarship, fellowship and devotion is its slogan. During this school year three outstanding awards have been made: Mr. Billy jones was selected from thousands of students of the southern universities and colleges as the student representative of the Beechnut Corporation. Since his appointment the company has placed him over Wilberforce, Tuskegee, West Virginia State, Fisk, Meharry and Tennessee A. and I. State Colleges. Mr. Jones also won an award of 325.00 from the Social Science Department during the Fall Quarter. Scholarship awards from the general organization were made to Messrs. Lloyd McMahan and Edgar S. Burke. During the years 1937 and 1938 the chapter won first prizes in the Delta Jabberwock thus eliminating their eligibility for the 1939 award. Mr. Herman J. D. Carter, young, promising poet and author, contributed his dramatic ability toward winning both prizes. The records show that the greatest number of men elected to Phi Beta Tau Honorary Scholastic Fraternity came from the ranks of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.

Kappa Alpha Psi aims to make college life fruitful and happy, and the long span of years after college rich and sweet in memories of college days, in the comforts which come from contacts with brothers in the bond, and in the happy prospect of faithful comrades to the end. The fundamental purpose of Kappa Alpha Psi is achievement. Alpha Theta Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity was established at Tennessee State College in 1931, and since that time has proved to be one of the outstanding organizations on the campus and in the city of Nashville. During these eight years Q 193149395 many Kappa men have contributed to the success of the institution. The year 193869 found Kappa men at the front in the activities of the school. Most of the outstanding men on the football team were wearers of the Diamond. The following men played a major part in the success of the Tigers: Charles Finn, Guard, Charles Adams, Centerg Charles Goodman, Tackleg James Harris, Guardg Rayfield Anderson, Endg james Price, Backg and Andy Lewis, Back. Harris was selected on the All Midfwestern team for the third time. Goodman was elected as Captain of the football team for the coming year 41939401 In basketball Goodman and Price were standouts. Milton Green has distinguished himself as one of the outstanding singers in the Concert Group. Daniel Provine and Lorenzo H. Traylor are Pledgees to Phi Beta Tau, the school's honor society. Traylor is also the Editor and Publisher of The Record. Professor M. R. Eppse, our Adviser, has distinguished himself as an author of note. One of Prof. Eppse's books, L'The Negro, Too, In Our History," is now being used in the leading schools throughout the country. Kappa men also stand out in Dramatics, Art and other phases of school activities. Other Kappa features at Tennessee State College include the following: Vesper and Sunday School programs, Annual Picnic, Kappa Kountry Karnival, and the Annual Spring Dance, the school's most entertaining affair. Members of the faculty who are members of Kappa include the following: Prof fessors Eppse, R. Munday and Grady Sherrill. Prof. Munday is also the Head Coach of the football team. Two of his assistants are also members of the Noble Clan of Kappa, they are Coaches Lawrence Simmons and Walter Parden. ROSTER H, A. Forde ..-,,,, - .......... L .,......., Polemarch R, H.

Since that time each undergraduate chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi has had its own Scrollers Club. These clubs comprised of men who are to become members of the fraternity were not content to bask in the reflected glory of the fraternity but have earned enviable renown through their own efforts in curricular and extra-curricular activities. Since the coming of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity to Tennessee State's campus on May 23, 1931, there have been sixteen separate and distinct Scrollers Clubs comprised of approximately one hundred and seventy-five members of which about one hundred have won their way into the realm of Kappa. Since their inception, the Scrollers Clubs have distinguished themselves particularly in sports but none the less in music, art, and scholarship. From the ranks of the Serollers Clubs have come honor roll students, All-American football men, All-Southern basketball men, track men, Concert Singers, art students, orchestra leaders, journalists and countless others of diversified talents. Fifteen different cities in seven states give the present Scrollers Club its roster of twenty men. This score ot' men quite ably represent their organization in the currently popular college activities such as basketball, football, tennis, track, music, art, and dramatics. Confident that the fair name of the Scrollers will not suffer because of us we sincerely believe that others tc come will do much better. First Row, left to right: Benjamin F.

On a whole it is convenient to distinguish between love and loyalty, and make of them separate virtues, although in ordinary language they rather overlap. When distinguished, love is said to be felt toward individuals, and loyalty toward groups. A man loves each separate member of his club or "frat," as an individual, he is loyal to his club or l'frat" as a social unit, and to each member of it because of his membership in it. Powerful certainly are the sentiments that bind a man to the social groups with which he identifies himself. Each group to some extent has its own moresg each makes its own demandsg and each man joyfully serves each of his groups and feels proud if commended, and shame and sorrow if condemned, by any of them.

Bal- lard, April, 1939. The prime purpose of its organization was to train students in think- ing and speaking logically and extemporaneously. Debaters Samuel James, Jr., Henry Ratcliffe, Granville Sawyer, Alexander James, Williams, and Raymond Childs competed commendably on the current debating question of the year "The Pump Priming Policy," against Tuskegee and Lincoln University. Prof. J. C. Ballard is p1'oud of his battlers of wit and has groomed them for the heavy competition that lies before them. SPEAKING The Open Student Forum of Tennessee State College made its inaugurative ap- pearance on the campus December 3rd, 1939. It came into being through the tireless efforts of Prof. J. C. Ballard, the new Social Studies professor of the college. It was his lpuiipo? to form an organization whereby students might be given a chance to t in a ou . With Samuel James, Jr., as President and forum chairman, Allie M. Kinley, Vice President, Henry Ratcliffe, Secretary, and Mary Bate as Reporter. Some of the forum discussions held the school year 1939 were: "The Pitfalls of Early Marriage"-12-3-39. "What Happens to Negro College Graduates ?"-1-29-39. "Is Religion a Vital Force in the Lives of College Students?"-2-26-39. How Can We Break Down Prejudice"-3-12-39 "To What Extent Does the Negro's Economic Development Depend on the Ballot?" -3-30-39. , f62l 0l"LU7'Z ,VOLLTD E 'A ll i . . , The month of March, 1939, marked the laying of two salient milestones in the path of A. and I.'s young Student Forum. Our school's initial inter-collegiate and inter- racial forum was held Ma1'ch 12th in the Little Theatre with students from Fisk and Vanderbilt collaborating with State in discussing the current issue of "How Can We Break Down Prejudice?" Speakers, Miss Mae Howlin and Mr. Caroll Leevy of Fisk, and Mr. William K. Fox of Tennessee State along with the participants in the open discussion expressed the following panacea for the question: A fab Massed economic power of Negroes Cbj Organization of minority groups i fel Organization of inter-racial youth groups fdj Extensive developing of co-operating movements among Negroes P1'of. J. C. Ballard, the power behind -the throne and guiding light of our Open Forum was not content with the venture and launched out to grasp the opportunity of meeting Lincoln University of Jefferson City, Mo., here in a second inter-collegiate open forum on March 30, 1939 in the College Auditorium. Mr. Holiday, Mr. McCormick and Mr. Stallings of Lincoln University along with Mr. Harold Love, Miss Allie Kinley and Mr. Raymond Lloyd of Tennessee State discussed the perplexing question of "To What Extent Does the Economic Development of the Negro Depend Upon the Ballot?" The attendance and interest in the open discussion was great and certainly war- ranted more of its kind in the future. The general conclusion reached was that the Negro's total economic development did 'not solely depend upon the ballot, but, if economic powercould be gotten, political power could be obtained, and in turn social justice demanded. Mr. Cecil Blue was the coach of Lincoln's team. Samuel James acted as forum chairman. Among the numerous highlights of the y.ear were the two inter-collegiate forums. The first was held at State with Fisk University and Vanderbilt University students as participants with Tennessee State, March 12 1939. The second was at Tennessee State with Lincoln University, March 3O,'1939. Two interesting current problems were discussed by the two inter-collegiate forums. They were, in order of sequence: "How Can We Break Down Prejudice?" and "To What Extent Does the Negro's Economic Development Depend on the Ballot?". i63l Cla Hfawkf Slab The Hawks Club was organized in the Fall of 1937. A group of men conceived the idea that Tennessee State College needed an organization that would be different from thc ordinary campus club, so with uniqueness and orginality as the basic purpose this club was formed. The charter members are as follows: George "Famous door" Dalton, Charles "Buck" Adams, Issac "Ike" Watsoii, W. G. "Skooch Skurchum" Arnold, Andrew Williains, Prof. Clarence "Jock" Searles, Prof. Vernon Winslow Know at Dillard Universityj, Fred "jimmy" Sumrall, Oscar jackson, L. H. "Crip" Traylor, June Broadnax and John Hotchkiss. Since 1937 the Hawks Club has become one of the most outstanding campus organizations and plans are now being completed to establish chapters at several other schools. One alumni chapter has already been formed in the city of Detroit. Included in the Hawks' activities are the following: Vesper and Sunday School programs, and those annual socials: A Hoboes Dance, A Kiddies Party and The Annual Hawks Ball in which no one is allowed to escort his or her girl friend or boy friend. This ball proved to be the most interesting and unique affair of last spring.

With better homes we produce better lives and better standards of living. This aim or objective may be summarized in this motto: "Take what you have and make what you want." We, as Home economists aim to practice this motto in all that we do-we learn and teach others how to be beautiful-a quality for which all persons in this universe strive-a quality about which more stories are written, and for which possibly more money is spent than any other we know. We learn how to be beautiful-in appearance-in mind-and in spirit. By dis' covering our assets and liabilities we learn to capitalize on the former and to overcome the latter-this may be done by applying our makefup different style or type or color of clothing, all more becoming to us, or we may acquire this coveted beauty by simply learning how to sit, walk, and stand with good posture. Thus we change our appear' ance for the better. Beauty in mind we acquire by keeping our hands busy and by keeping our minds on what our hands are doing. "An idle brain is the devil's workshop" cannot be justly applied to members of the Home Economics club for our minds are ever alert and active, learning new methods of doing thingsg it might mean new recipes for cooking, new patterns for needlecraft, block-printing, or woodwork, or even new books to read in other fields as well as our own. Beautiful work inspires beautiful thoughts-thus a beautiful mind. Beauty of spirit we learn by working together in harmony toward our objective: L'Better Homes." By Cooperation with one another we learn to be broad minded, to teach and be taught, to give andltake, to share opinions, and finally to be kind, thought' ful, and tactful. We learn to be charming . . . a trait which all the world admires but which few people truly possess. It takes all these attributes together to make our homes better. If we possess these we are truly assets to our families and friends. If we do not possess them we can "Take what we have and make what we want."

F ounder ifemfi The Literati Club, founded in the fall of 1932 by Miss Zelma L. Redmond, English Department, has for its chief aims the improvement of self-expression, the instillation of the desire to use correct English and the art of creative writing. The Literati Club has three branches: the charter, organized by students during the regular session, the Duo, organized by teachers attending summer school, and the Junior, organized in high schools and junior high schools by the Jewels of the Charter and Duo branches. To qualify for membership in any branch of the Club, a student must maintain an average of "B-" or above in English and he must possess some creative ability. A distinguishing feature of the club is its roster of jewels, who are members that have made worthy literary contributions for a period of four years. Certificates of merit, signed by the president, the dean and the founder are awarded the Jewels, and they are the only members of the club who are eligible to wear the gold pin, a sc1'oll with an acorn for the guard. Public annual programmes include, vesper services, Sunday School, observance of Negro History Week, debates, book exhibits and dramas. Literary contributions include the Biography of President W. J. Hale, entitled, "A Man for the Ages," a collection of original literature, entitled the "Beacon," an original play, written by Herman J. D. Carter and presented by the members, "Sorority Money," books of original poetry, "Scottsboro Blues," Herman Carter, "Volga Whis- pers," Troy Jeter, anthologies of English and American Literature and a collection of the philosophies of life of great Americans, entitled "Life" The literary hobby of the club, collecting philosophies of life of great Americans, has acclaimed national attention and praise. Even the Hobby Guild of America offered to finance the publication of this compilation. Among the philosophies of life included in the compilation are those of the following presidents of colleges: W. J. Hale, Mary E. Branch, J. R. E. Lee, VJ. L. Cuninggin, Dwight O. Holmes, Thomas E. Jones, Leslie P. Hill and P. R. Clement. Other educators: W. E. Turner, Charles S. Johnson, George W. Gore, Ambrose Caliver, James A. Atkins, J .C. Napier, Henry A. Boyd, Russell A. Lane, Ullin W. Leavell, and many others too numerous to list here. Among the publishers, editors and organizations that have accepted the creative literature of the Literati Club are: The Hobby Guild of America, the Little Playhouse Group of Philadelphia, the National Tuberculosis Association, Carlyle Straub, Editor of The Muse, N.Y.g the Chicago Defender, the Crisis, Pittsburg Courier and A. and I. State College Bulletin.

Two of the most beautiful dances, given by the Literati Club, are the Japanese "Cherry Blossom Dance," and the "Book Dance." In selecting souvenirs for the dances, the club kept in mind the mean- ing of the word, Literati, for each guest received books of poetry and pencils, stamped with the word, Literati-"Literature is Life." i731 I 1 E "f .nl Q ii 4 I A l Q I .

REDMOND, I-nstmctov Students in the Child Psychology Classes, believing in the activity program, were motivated to sponsor "The Children's Hour," for their term project. They believe it is the function of the elementary school to help every child not only to desire and appreciate worthwhile activities but also to participate in them for the enjoyment he gains from such participation. The activities of childhood determine adult life. If every child develops an appreciation for participating in varied activities for pure enjoyment, there need be no fear entertained as to how he will use whatever leisure time adult life may give him. "School should be a laboratorium rather than an auditorium."-Kerschinsteiner. "The teacher is the stearing gear of democracy."-Ross Finney. 'LWhat the best and wisest parent Wants for his child, that must the community want for all its children."-John Dewey.

In an endeavor to prepare the individual that he may better fit the patterns of a cultural society, the College has recognized the many phases of life's activities which must be developed and encouraged in order to fulfill its educational duty toward the youth of today. Being aware of this responsibility A. and I. State College has placed special em- phasis on that most vital side of life's preparation-the spiritual aspect of living. Thus, an appreciation of the fact that an individual is only partially educated, only limitedly prepared to face a complex society without a knowledge of the ideals and virtues necessary to the highest standards of living and the consciousness of the creator of our high humanity. In keeping with this philosophy of success through educating the individual as a whole, the religious services have constituted a program including monthly church service, weekly prayer, Sunday vesper observance, Religious Emphasis Week, and Sunday morning Church School. These services under the direct control of a religious committee approved by the administration seek to bring before the student body outstanding speakers in religious and educational pursuits. The Church School, under the faculty direction of Mr. R. E. Clay, State Building Developer of Education, is conducted for a period of one hour each Sunday morning with members of the regular teaching staff in charge of the college classes. Officers and student teachers are elected by student vote from the student-body. Mr. Clay with earnest and sincere interest has sought to fit the Church into the academic pro- gram of the institution thus making it an effective instrument of learning which may be of service to the student in the community in which he works. The college organizations-the fraternities, sororities, social and departmental clubs-foster the program each Sunday, thus offering a varied program throughout the year including panel-discussions, religious dramas and speakers. Among those having brought inspiring messages to the students are: Dr. Walter D. Cocking, former Commissioner of Education, Dr. George D. Strayer, Jr., George Pea- body College, Mr. Seymore Lynk, department of English, George Peabody College, Mr. W. E. Turner and Mr. D. S. Tanner, State Directors of Negro Education, Dr. T. Paul McConnell and Dr. J. L. Keesler of the Y. M. C. A. Graduate School, Miss Eilene Ransom, Ward Belmont College, The Reverend W. S. Ellington, First Baptist Church, East Nashville, The Reverend A. Myron Cochran of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Dr. Bartok of Czechoslovakia, the Reverend W. F. Powell, First Baptist Church, D1'. Horace Mann Bond, department of Education, Fisk University, Dr. Charles S. John- son, department of Social Sciences, Fisk University, Dr. C. E. Van Horn, department of Mathematics, Fisk University, the Reverend W. J. Faulkner, Dean of Men and University Minister, Fisk University, Mr. Fred McCuistion, General Education Board, Dr. Henry Allen Boyd, Baptist Publishing Board, Rabbi Julius Mark, Vine Street Tem- ple, and Dr. S. L. Smith, George Peabody College. President W. J. Hale by his presence, influence and support has encouraged and endorsed the spiritual activities of the Church School and it is with grateful apprecia- tion that we acknowledge his unselfish interest. 5883 .l feel in Ill?-Era.-:-E Ill Ill alll lg .

In 1932 and 1933, they sang at the Chicago World's Fair, while thousands listened on a cold su1nmer's night. Whexi Kagawa spoke to a packed house in Memphis two or three years ago, these singers brought the house down in applause. St. Louis presented them in their large opera house at the 1936 National Education Association Convention. Networks from coast to coast have picked up their Columbia Broadcasting Programs. The Concert Singers have sung to the President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and to four governors of Tennessee: Gov. H. H. Horton, Gov. Hill Mc' Alister, Gov. Gordon Browning, and the present Gov. Prentice W. Cooper. Whenever and wherever the Concert Singers go in their new "SuperfLine Deluxe" bus, they are received with the same cordial air that any distinguished group of artists would he received. But there is no wonder in this statement, because our Concert Sin' gers are high-class, wellfdressed and goldenfvoiced individuals with personalities to he envied. Their talented and well-versed directress, Mrs. Marie BrooksfStrange, gives untiringly her time to be their sincere friend, and their real source of inspiration. 1938-39 CONCERT SINGERS Personnel Mrs. Marie B.

The students have found the two beautiful lakes a source of unlimited pleasure. Many go boating after class hours, others choose to stroll alongside them in the lovely recreational park area, which has many other features of natural and lasting beauty. A batte1'y of ten tennis courts are ready for use. On the other side of the campus is a spacious play field where many activities go on. I In addition, the Department boasts of one of the finest stadiums and field houses in the South. With this, including a large gymnasium and swimming pool, members of the Department hope to build strong bodies, keen and alert minds and wholesome atti- tudes toward men and life, happy healthy progressive individuals. Miss Walker Chavers has done a remarkable piece of work on many occasions in American Red Cross First Aid classes. The Department maintains a First Aid Room for convenience. v Mrs. Goldie Bruce, as school nurse, cooperates very effectively and untiringly with the school physician, Dr. J. H. Hale. Emphasis is placed on keeping the students healthy, rather than upon curing the students. As a result, -very few students experience any illnesses. We believe that health is the greatest asset in life and the basis for all happiness and success. f97l Q36 yum!

The Negro has made an enviable place for him- self in the fields of Music, Art and Drama. But this recognition only applies to a very few very talented persons. Any strides in progress for the masses must be made along economic lines. First, all Negroes must recognize the significance of dependability, punctuality, trustworthiness, truthfulness, honesty and efficiency, as well as a wholesome attitude toward all types of work and their fellowmen. Hence, there should be offered some courses in Business for all Negro College Students, with an emphasis on the socio- economic phases of life. A small group should be encouraged to pursue courses quali- fying them to be efficient office assistants, thus promoting business among our people. Then, a very limited number should seek to be leaders in Business, creating positions for other Negroes, by opening businesses suitable for different communities. But those venturing into this field should fully realize that a bachelor or graduate degree is only the beginning, as sanity of thought and actions, wisdom, industry, common sense and courtesy must go hand in hand with knowledge. To this end has the Department of Secretarial Commerce been organized: to mainly train office assistants, and to encourage for further training the few, who seem to pos- sess the necessary executive qualities. Because of a sane program of attempting what could be well performed and achiev- ed, this department has received national recognition for the training of efficient sec- retaries and teachers of commercial subjects. As evidence of same, a large percentage of the secretaries in business houses, insurance companies, colleges and universities are our graduates. All of the teachers of commercial subjects in Tennessee, a large number throughout the South, and several in the cities of Washington and New York in the city systems are our graduates. The United States Government has been attracted by the excellence of the work of this department, as its representatives extend special invitation to our g1'aduates to take the Civil Service Examinations. Many pass with high honors, and receive worthwhile positions in Washington, Tuskegee Veterans Bu- 1'eau Hospital, as well as in other places. Alpha Theta Omega Fraternity was organized by three senio1's of 1939, Mr. Wm. Hafford and Misses D. Bruce and S. Harris, as they were given an opportunity to exe- cute and formulate their own plans, to appreciate the value of good business ethics, to develop high standards of scholarship, as well as encouraged to study new develop- ments of business. The purpose of the organization is to promote interest in the busi- ness world, to stimulate interest in daily class work, and to develop good business tech- niques. These pictures represent the members at work in the different departments of Business. The present officers are: H. Hafford ....,.,....,.....,....,........... President A. Procter ...... ,..,,.,.,,..
