ln 1963, Wallace stood in the doorway of Foster Auditorium. Today the University of Alabama has black professors, black history courses, black athletes and black alumni. Todayis state politicians are not as concerned about blacks at Alabama as much as they are concerned with pot, dope, yippies and communists. What has been the cause of this change in attitude? What has brought about the conditioning and socialization which has surely taken place? For the most part the change at Alabama is a reflection of a bigger changeg a nationwide change in attitudes which have resulted in the so called social revolution. The new mood that is rocking the nation is apparent not only in the fashion world but also in the motion picture in- dustry and the hard rock music of today. There is no doubt that the most talked about movies on campus have changed from Gone With the Wind and James Bond to Easy Rider and Alice's Restaurant. At the same time major attractions on campus have ventured from the Tams to Janis Joplin. The gimmick is to be timely and relevant and present the audience with shocking detail and emotionalism while conveying a philosophical message or warning to society. The important thing to note is that these means of entertainment have infiltrated a once cozy traditionalism to the point where the campus community is functioning in a transition. The University of Alabama is by no means a pace setter or a leader in this movement. On the con- trary, the students are just now beginning to resent the fact that they constantly "bring up the reara' in almost every area conceivable to man. As these social media are used to reflect a change in society they will also hasten to solidify that change especially since they are being received by a more perceptive and alert audience.

The football team lost four games this season and there have been no suicidal attempts. A conceivable split in the Greek vote put several independents into top SGA positions to preside over the 69-70 academic year. Black studentsjoined hands with whites to crusade for Woods Quad, and campus "moderates" and f'liberals" united to challenge the new president for the method he used in selecting the new Dean of Student Development. These are accomplishments for Alabama. They are accomplishments because it is Alabama, a university where football is usually the center of campus life, where a united fraternal system virtually controlled all aspects of society, where blacks and whites have been traditionally segre- gated, and where until recently, there has been no liberal faction worth mentioning and no concep- tion of student power even in its most humbled form. What was yesterdayls liberalism is becoming the new order of the day and student power is now a term so frequently used it is becoming trite. Regrettably the words are used with various connotations. Student power at Alabama is not activism, rather it implies no taxation without representation. Student leaders found themselves unprepared for this new game of confrontation politics as it developed with this spurt of student power. Black demands, eviction notices served on the military, a black girl in the Homecoming Court-all the events of this year caused the eyes of the student body to focus on the leaders. For the first time SGA was noticed. This novel experience caused a few politicos to sweat so someone suggested that they do something. Attempts at change were made with some accomplishments and gratification. Many sincere efforts, however, were merely met with token approval by an administration that rationalized slow change as being responsible change. At least it was a beginning.
