THE SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY of Virginia Union Univer- sity fformerly the School of Religionj has as its purpose the preparation of Christian leaders with special emphasis on training for the Christian Ministry. lt aims to equip leaders and religious workers of integrity, of character and of social vision who will bring to the community an uplifting Christian ministry. The prime emphasis is on the preparation of intel- ligent and consecrated ministers who are devoted to inter- preting the Christian Gospel. The second accent is on the preparation of men for the pastoral ministry whose insight and ideals equip them as dynamic leaders of the Christian community. At the same time the School of Theology is aware that its origins and its constituency lie predominantly within the black community. This consciousness calls the School to the particular task of training those who come from andlor who seek their ministry within this community, informing them of the heritage and the responsibilities of the Negro Church. In this task the School of Theology finds its own special calling. Faculty tSchooI of Religionl . .X , M.. ai Top: William Jerry Boney, A.B.g B.D.g Ph.D. fProfessor of Theology and Philosophyl.

Sears Each college or university has its own individual ways of recognizing stu- dents of exceptional merit, however persons outside of that particular institu- tion are almost completely unaware of these scholars. In 1937 a group of studious persons decided to remedy this situation. They compiled a long list- ing of outstanding students and called it WHO'S WHO AMONG STUDENTS IN AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES. In the preface to the twenty-seventh volume the editor, H. Pettus Randall, gave the purpose of the listing, by stating, "Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges was begun twenty-seven years ago with the double purpose of providing recognition to truly worthy college students and to provide reference for outstanding prospective personnel for employers. Through- out the years this purpose has remained the same, though more schools, more students and more statistics have been added to the book from time to time." On Virginia Union's campus the criterion for selection are: ill exceptional characterg Q21 academic excellenceg 133 outstanding personalityg C41 perspective community leadersg 151 and active in college organizations. The students with these qualifications are recommended by the faculty and voted on by the entire student body. It is therefore a popularity contest as well as a distinct national honor to be elected. Persons not pictured but elected are: Janice Braggsg Barbara Jo Cofey and Cecilia M. Thompson. WN Alicia M. Hawkes James E.

The building, constructed in 1898 of gray granite and Georgia pine, was named in honor of the "gener- ous governor of Maine, who gave 350,000 to Wayland seminary" in 1887. lAbner Coburn, Governor of Maine 1863 to 1867.l The Chapel was of the massive Romanesque architectural design popular in the United States at the turn of the century. Of the three stories in the building, the chapel, was on the second. lt was a beauti- ful semi-circular room capable of seating 600 persons, the beams and trusses of the roof were cased in the best Georgia pine, which formed a rich and unique ceiling. An alarm on the campus was pulled when persons noticed smoke pouring from the building. Ten minutes later, the entire roof was aflame. Dr. Allix B. James, VUU President, indicated that it is unusual for a fire not deliberately set to spread so quickly. He also added that the mood of the students had been "peaceful and calm after the Kent State mas- sacre and the Cambodian incur- sions." Coburn Hall, he stated, was a campus landmark and he could not imagine any university con- nected person setting fire to it. After the fire was controlled only the granite walls were left standing. Assistant Fire Chief John D. Barlow, said 95 per cent of the building was damaged and it would cost "a lot of money" to restore it. There is at present a drive to re- build the structure, but the old Co- burn is gone forever-may she REST IN PEACE. BEFORE, the Chapel was destroyed by fire ltop leftl, it stood, as a campus landmark. AFTER, the fire it is a guttered hull lfar leftl. The INTERIOR of the building labove and lefty after the fire ra- vished the Romanesque structure which was built in 1898, stands idle as the University attempts to raise funds to restore it. 69 Homecoming A time for a break from the mo- notony of bordom of intellectual pursuits. A time to greet old friends and alumni. A time to show parents what we have done constructive. A time to show parents, friends and alumni what we've done destructive. A time to beat State. A time to watch the "Greeks" groove lwhat ever that means.j A time to show off the newest outfits a time to attend Que's Kabaret. A time to attend a "dawn dance." A time to think of midterms which are only a week af- ter the event. A time to visit the Hol- iday lnn and not tell mother. A time to crown Miss Union. A time to watch the Moments "do their thing" even if their thing wasn't very inter- esting. A time to build a float for the parade. A time to see the bleachers of the Harvey field filled. A time to watch a silly middle class lady ar- rive for the football game dressed in mink and diamonds. A time to see a member of the gay liberation arrive in a midi coat. A time to see Miss Union wear the conventional purple. A time to see the first run- ner up for Miss Union in a longuett skirt. A time for some frustrated young man to put on a private show in the football stands. A time for po- lice to be everywhere. A time for the band to show off. A time for Gwen Atkins to say "band take the field." A time for Dr. James to kiss Cecilia Thompson. A time for a soda to cost a quarter.

Allix B. James Becomes Amid all the pomp and pageantry of all academic celebrations Dr. Al- lix Bledsoe James was inaugurated as the seventh president of Virginia Union University on October 30, 1970. The ceremonies got under way with an academic procession includ- ing representatives from at least ninety-nine colleges and universi- ties and a host of delegates repre- senting government, fraternal, ed- ucational and religious organiza- tions. More than 2,000 persons jammed Barco-Stevens Hall which caused the Richmond AFRO AMERICAN to declare, "it was perhaps the most thoroughly integrated occasion ever held at a black institution of higher learning in Virginia and it included Governor Linwood Holton, first Vir- ginia governor ever to attend the inauguration of a black college president." The day, though the sun refused to show its face and a cloud burst drenched the crowd gathering for the 4 o'clock ceremonies, belonged to Dr. James. He marched militantly down the carpeted aisles, dressed in his aca- demic robe which was gray and burgandy edged in white allowing all around to know he was a scholar of theology. "My efforts . . . will be centered on developing a community of all persons where a revitalization of the educational process must take place," said the new president in his inaugurating speech. V.U.U. cannot afford to cling "sla- vishly to tradition for tradition's sake, but must instead seek to an- swer" some of the basic questions raised by the student as he at- tempts to find himself in a world that is becoming increasingly con- fused.

'ze ' ffl' K 1 E Vaughn if l Charles ln the hum drum world of intellectual pursuit, boredom sometimes takes it toll. When it does, a valve is needed to allow the excesses of tension to escape. Such an instrument on Virginia Union University's campus is Vaughn and Charles, an exciting and warm group which plays from the heart and sends a glow throughout the entire campus. Vaughn and Charles have performed at many of Richmond's better night spots about town and in each case establishing disbelief as to the sounds which two musicians can project. Their act in full bloom consists of singing, switching instruments, a dance routine, comedy and a rapping session. Their repertoire consists of any- thing from Burt Bacharach to Sly and to an African Mass. Vaughn and Charles!-Right On. The Rev. Henry C. Gregory, lll Henry C.

J The Pre-Law Club The Pre-Law Club, sponsored by Mrs. Nina Abady, was organized by Virginia Union students interested in various aspects of the legal profession, with the avowed purpose of pooling information concerning law schools and financial aid, as well as of stimulating interest in other students in the legal profession. The newly formed Pre-Law Club presented a pan- el discussion which included six distinguished mem- bers of the Old Dominion Bar Association. The panel, composed of attorneys Henry L. Marsh, Jerald Green, James E. Sheffield, Jim Benton, Leonard W. Lambert, and Harold M. Marsh stressed "Black Representation in the Legal Profession. After analyzing the presentations given by the six members of the Old Dominion Bar Association, the membership of the Pre-Law Club attending the dis- cussion, saw more clearly the urgent need for addition- al black lawyers.

The Sociology Club of Virginia Union University is an academic or- ganization dedicated to broadening the student's educational horizons through social, academic and community activity. This year the organiza- tion concentrated its efforts toward community concerns and acted as the student voice for change within the Sociology Department. The organization started with a full agenda. Recently it ratified its new- ly constructed constitution which was contained in the first edition of the club's newsletter. It then conducted a school-wide community involvement. For the month of December the club planned Christmas baskets with food and clothing for needy families, a sociology faculty-student forum to help achieve better rapport between students and faculty and to inspire change within the department. 2 Q , iw Q, ..,.,..- A r .fyx .fix K Seated: Madeline Powell Cse 0.1, Jessie Woodhouse, Bernice Walls.

The organization attempts to develop a spirit of cooperation in the activities of the women of the university, to afford develop- 'S ment of leadership, self-expression, self-control and mutual re- spect, and to improve the relationship of the faculty and women students of this college. The purpose of the Women's Senate is to provide a medium through which women students may promote the interests and welfare of the college community, to develop and maintain in every way high standards of college life, and to allow the women students to express their opinions on matters which relate par- ticularly to student life. Student Education Association Joshua B. Simpson Chapter Seated: Portia Williams, Gwendolyn Jones-Sec., Yvonne Hopkins-Treas. Standing: Elwood Stanton-President. The Student Association had its beginning in an organization known as the "Education Club". lt was organized by the late Dr. Robert P. Daniel in 1932. Professor C.W. Florence came to Virginia Union University in 1940 and began to work with the Education Club as an advisor. In 1948 the Edu- cation Club was changed by title to the "Future Teachers of America" and named the Joshua B. Simpson Chapter. The title of the association was changed again in 1957 to the Student National Education Association. The Student Education Association functions on three levels: National, state, and local. As in- dicated above the local association at Virginia Union University is known as the Joshua B. Simp- son who served for many years at Virginia Union University. - Past advisors of the local chapter include Professor C.W. Florence, professor Emeritus of Vir- ginia Union Universityg Miss Leah V. Lewis, Associate Professor of Education, and Dr. D.N. Cowling, Director of the Division of Education and Psychology. The essential purpose of the SNEA is to sponsor those activities that show promise of helping to select,- guide and inform students interested in becoming teachers of elementary and secondary schools. Further, to promote and improve teaching as a profession on local, state, and national lev- els. Currently there are 55 active members of the Joshua B. Simpson Chapter. Officers of the chap- ter are elected annually. GJ... -CD33 mOOfD""GJL -3.0 B LU THE V.U.U.

Q1 X i 5 1 2 te ,Q I imi The following comments were made by Mr. Edward R. Haymes of the Richmond Times Dispatch after the Choir's Annual Winter Concert, which was held on January 10, 1971. The Virginia Union University Choir gave its 11th annual Winter Concert at the Mosque yesterday afternoon, presenting an interesting and varied program under the di- rection of Odell Hobbs. The student accompanist, Philip Mclntyre, dis- tinguished himself as both organist and pianist. The program opened with three choruses from J. S. Bach's "Magni- ficat." The singers did an excellent job of projecting the contrapuntal complexity of this music without losing the warmth of sound that characterized their singing all eve- ning. Their performance in the three choruses makes one wish that they would arrange to sing the entire work sometime. Three choruses by Alan Hovhan- ness followed. This American com- poser is very conscious of his Ar- menian descent, and one feels the oriental colors of Armenian music in the harmonies of most of his works. The choir handled this dif- ficult music expertly, and the organ- ist deserves special praise for his colorful registration. Fast and tricky rhythms domin- ated the setting of "All the Earth Sing Unto the Lord" by McLin. This did not keep the choir from getting every word across as they romped through the piece, making it sound easy. Spoken Chorus The next piece, entitled "Recon- ciliation" employed a long passage for spoken chorus. The device has rarely been employed as effectively as in this work. The last two works of the first half of the concert were more con- ventional, and obviously chosen to show off the capabilities of the chorus. This they did. lf there is anything at all negative that can be said about this portion of the con- cert, it is that the organ sometimes tended to override the singers, par- ticularly in the Bach choruses. The second half of the concert was devoted mainly to arrange- ments derived from the spiritual literature. The choir did not leave behind the precision and clear tone that had characterized the conven- tional works of the first half, but their special identification with the music was obvious. It is hard to single out high points here, but one of them would cer- tainly be Evelyn Thomas' haunting solo voice in "Glory, Glory, Hallelu- jah." The atmosphere of the concert seemed to be that this was a special thing for Virginia Union University and its community, but the quality of musicianship displayed showed that this choir deserves the serious attention of the Richmond Musical community at large. ani. -"' at f- we M S c '19 . ,.',j' .'

At the beginning of the year no less than twenty-five persons promised to work, but as the deadlines rolled in, the so called staff rolled out, when they realized that work had to be done. All drifted out until only the editor and the associate editor were left to do the job alone. As in many of life's situa- tions, printed pictures do not always show those who carry the burden of producing a job. This year, however, those who worked tried to be as creative as possible. They started out with the slogan "Don't repeat last year's mistakes." Yet, some were repeated due to the lack of co-operation given by various organiza- tions and some of the faculty. Each organization was asked for snapshots of their respective groups in action. As the deadline approached, only two Clubs had responded. Therefore if the book is a success, the credit should be given to Sallie Shaw and James Peterson as well as to the school photographer, Mr. Scott L. Henderson. Yearbook Staff V, . A. -sz-H .

The Roger Williams Baptist Fellowship is a reli- gious organization, sponsored by the University. The organization was established in 1961 to strengthen the faith among Baptist students, to increase knowledge of the Baptist doctrine and to act as a liaison between our religious experiences at home and the challenging experiences at school. Each semester the Fellowship sends representa- tives to Eagle Eyrie in Lunchburg, Virginia for the Vir- ginia Baptist Student Union Convention. More than 400 students from colleges in Virginia are usually present. Working under the direction of Rev. Cessar Scott, the Fellowship has tried to provide a meaningful pro- gram helpful to the growth, fellowship and religious experience of its members. PGHTGCOSTEII Fellowship The Pentecostal Student Fellowship is a religious organization for Holiness students or students that de- sire to strengthen their spiritual wisdom according to the light of holiness.

The main function of the usher is to act as a liaison between our visitors to concerts, chapel, plays, lectures and other public performances. They also assist in seating, distributing programs and collecting student tickets during various university functions. The Ushers have been under the direction of Mrs. Catherine P. James since 1966.

The editor was the only person on this year's newspaper staff that worked on the newspaper last year. The rest of the staff were mostly freshmen. The length of the school publication was length- ened from four pages to eight pages. Special fea- tures that have been added are Entertainment, Men's Fashion Corner, Ad-Lib, Student Interviews and others. This year the newspaper staff has begun a Classified Ad section to give the students a chance to sell, buy, rent, give special messages, to make announcements.

The Board of Student Publications founded in 1965 by its chairman, Mr. Archibald H. Benson, has four main objectives. They are: Q13 To create a cooper- ative spirit among the journalistic services of the Uni- versity. t2j To provide an opportunity for the student editors to gain profitable knowledge from their advi- sor's wealth of experiences. f3j To encourage produc- tive and creative energies by creating an atmosphere that endows the student with freedom of selection in the best interest of presentation and promotion of his publicationg and Q45 To provide responsible student representation and thought within the framework of university policy. Everyone seemed to be screaming "express your- self," and the members of the Journalism Club planned a year of activities to do just that. Althera T. Callands was chosen as president and Everett A. Lewis as her assistant. The office of secre- tary was given to Marilyn T. Boyce and Hortense Wash- ington was chosen as treasurer. The job of reporter was given to Melvin C. Johnson and Mr. Archibald H. Benson was elected as advisor. The planned activities for the year included trips, discussions, socials and formats. C r e a t i v e A r t i s t s W o r k s h o D After the departure of Margaret Danner, that great black culture nationalist from Virginia Union in May 1970, young poets and other writers were left homeless with no place to take refuge. As long as she was on the scene, they knew that she would provide them with encouragement and even financial assistance, but now she is gone. Some interested people got together and gave some thought to Union's young, sensitive and creative writers-Jocelyn Holloway, Mrs. Duckworth lsponsorl, and Dr. Gribbin-who had long been interested in the writing of Union students. The Artist Workshop came into being in October, 1970, with Jesse Bolden as president. All at once it was composed of poets who had followed the culture nationalism of Miss Margaret Danner, and a few members from a literary club which had been headed by Jocelyn Hol- loway and sponsored by Mrs. Margaret Duckworth. Chemistry Club The Chemistry Club, one of Union's newest organizations, is by far one of the smallest and most re- strictive in nature. Its purpose is simply to unite Union's interested Chemists under an organization in tune with their needs. It provides for everything from the latest recruit- ers and employment possibilities to a forum for the latest advancements in Chemical Research, and unfortun- ately accounts for the horrible "stench" on the third floor of Elli- son Hall.

VUUP Presented First Play On October 28, the University Players of Virginia Union University presented "To Be Black" as part of the weeklong inaugural activities when Dr. Allix B. James officially became President of the University. The produc- tion, adapted and directed by William Kramer, the Univer- sity's Director of Drama, was in his words, "an explora- tion of black writings, both historical and contemporary." l UNIVERSITY PLAYERS The work centered around James Baldwin's "My Dungeon Shoot", a section of his very popular book, The Fire Next Time. Cast in the show were Barbara Crump, an Oklahoma senior at Virginia Uniong Ida Miles, a Suffolk county se- niorg Vaugh McClarrin, a Washington, D. C. seniorg Na- thaniel Seate, a Buffalo, New York junior and Donda Wil- liams, an Oklahoma senior. "My Dungeon Shook", the base-piece for the produc- tion, was written in the form of a letter of advice. Baldwin talks to his young nephew on the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and questions the events since. The production which was unusual in two ways con- sisted totally of writings by blacks, from the arrival of slaves in Virginia in 1619 to the contemporary comments of Lorraine Hansberry in her famous "To Be Young Gifted, and Black" speech. The production explored the various reactions and ideas developed by individual black people in this country throughout its history. l l l l l l l l l l l i i l l l l I s 1 Foreign Students Association The Foreign Student Association at Virginia Union's officers are: President, Tayo Alukog Vice-Presi- dent, Etenesh Tsigeg Secretary, Moses Omotolag Treasurer, Samuel Akandeg Publicity Secretary, Jea- nette Thaxterg Social Secretary, Ola- dipo Dada.

The sorority became an incorporated National Col- legiate Sorority on December 30, 1929, when acharter was granted Alpha Chapter at Butler University, Indi- ana. The purpose of the sorority is expressed in its slo- gan: "Greater Service, Greater Progress." Activities are often encouraged that will further in every way pos- sible the advantages of the intellectual, moral and so- cial growth of its members. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority has been advancing on the campus of Virginia Union University under the leadership of the officers and the sponsors. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was organized at Howard University on January 16, 1920. It grew out of the en- couragement given the five founders by Charles Rob- ert Taylor and Langston Taylor members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. Their feeling was that the campus would profit by the development of such an organiza- tion of sisters to the Fraternity. Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek letter college so- rority organized in Africa. Nu Chapter began in the mind of Iram Benny who had communicated with Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. After obtaining the necessary in- formation and perspective, members were obtained. Nu Chapter made its appearance in Richmond, Virgin- ia on May1, 1926. Zeta Phi Beta 'M .

Theta Sorority A public service organization, Delta Sigma The- ta Sorority Inc. was founded in 1913 at Howard Uni- versity in Washington D.C. Over the years the aims of the Sorority have been to emphasize scholarship, leadership, and service. To this end, activities are planned to encourage achievement. On the national scale Delta has attracted to its ranks thousands of women who individually and col- lectively have contributed their time and talents to prove the worth of the Sorority. Their areas of con- cern are varied including politics, music, art, litera- ture and education. Through tireless and unselfish efforts the larger community has benefited. The Beta Epsilon Chapter at Virginia Union Uni- versity endeavors to aid the campus as well as the surrounding community. Service projects such as purchasing lunches for elementary school children, visiting hospitals, collecting usable clothing and holding parties are some of the efforts to foster the image of Delta Sigma Theta as a public service or- ganization. Other than the community benefits are the per- sonal benefits for the members in regard to person- al and family needs for security and protection. The Sorority is established to benefit its members in all ways. The method used to accomplish their goals are individual. H. Q ,..

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority was founded on January 16, 1908 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. This initiated the Greek Letter Sororities among Ne- gro women in America. Alpha Eta Chapter of Alpha Kap- pa Alpha Sorority was founded on May 28, 1928 on the campus of Vir- ginia Union University. This was the beginning of Greek Letter Sororities on this campus. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is the oldest and largest Greek Letter sorority among Negro women. From the year of its conception, this organization of college women has fostered high scholastic achievements, cultural development and has sponsored service projects in various communities in which its chapters are located. 1 Using, DRKBBNI7-HT 0 "G" Phi Soul The idea of "G" Phi Soul was for- mulated on December 18, 1968 at Virginia Union University by the ten founders, Charoiette Bullock, Kathy Strayhorn, Janice Braggs, Paula Johnson, Thelma Floyd, Marianne Hancock, Sandra Newton, Dorcus Rogers, Winona Banks, and Patricia Robertson. "G" Phi Soul was the first ladies social organization estab- lished on Virginia Union's campus. The aims of this social organiza- tion are to aid the old aged, visit the handicapped children to unite the women who are not affiliated with any other organization and to help bring unity and spirit to Virgin- ia Union.

VUU VS MARYLAND STATE The Panthers watched a 13-3 lead dwindle to a 17-13 deficit, rallied for a touchdown with 4:20 remain- ing to win their first game of the season. After losing the lead midway through the second quarter, the Panthers, who had matched the Hawks play for play in the game's fierce ground struggle, failed to put their offense together as the clock slowly made the Panthers' first victory look doubtful. However, the defense held and Virginia Union fi- nally regained its momentum midway through the final period. The Panthers won over the Hawks 19-17. It was the first win of the season. VUU VS NORFOLK STATE Norfolk State's Spartans, trailed 19-7 at half time, scored two touchdowns in the second half and then hung on to slip past the Virginia Union Panthers. VUU, who led most of the game, fell behind with just over eight minutes left in the game when Norfolk State fullback William Franklin plunged over for a tally from the two yard line. Warren Stone converted Union and the Spartans a 21-19 lead. The Spartans got on the scoreboard first, in the first quarter, when halfback Condie Pugh plunged over from the three to cap a 60-yard drive. In the second quarter, the Panthers racked up 19 points, on runs of one yard each by quarterback William James, and a three-yard pass from Mallory to split end Leland Pierce.

'fin f www nw-:ww ,Q me.: , J' -fl Written by Samuel G. Bailey Virginia Union University experienced one of her most beneficial years in basketball action this season. On an overall basis of conception, the Panthers Bas- ketball squad performed very well, however they did not lick their main enemy-inconsistence. The Panther started out in the season with the "ex- perienced" type of teamwork. But during the latter sec- tion of the season, the club ran into some problems. They began being confronted with poor officiating, in- compatible teamwork, inconsistence in scoring by the leading players, and very shallow support by Union's fans. These type of problems did not help make a powerful team. They helped make just the opposite, which was a team that could have, perhaps been at the top of the rank in the CIAA. Basketball Action 1971 yivw' F 133 A considerable amount of credit should be given to all of the players on Virginia Union University's basketball team. Nathan Can- nady, the Panthers leading scorer, per- formed with the talent of a superstar. In fact, Nathan is a superstar. He attracted the minds of all spectators and delivered a per- formance which was totally bewildering. Can- nady was an all-around superb ball player. He could handle the ball excellently, pars and assist with great accuracy, play defense exceptionally well, and lead his team with the ability of an outstanding captain. T f 1 w Y 1 'v EM , 1 x 'f' f -,s k fl? wil l35 ,Y Andrew Hageley is another Panther cage player who deserves a well rounded credidation. Hazdeley served as the playmaker of the squad, and he certainly contributed a fine consumption of talent. James Brown, a freshman, received his first taste of collegiate bas- ketball action this season. Let one observe him on the court, he would an- ticipate that Brown was an experienced ball player. Next year, James should be even more awesome and stronger than he was in his first year. Wilson James, the center for the Panther, proved to be of great val- ue to the Virginia Union University Team by using his illustrious jumping ability and retrieving a number of costly rebounds and scoring with fine accuracy, and field goal percentage. Charlie Scott, the experienced man, exhibited a totally unique type of talent. Scott exemplified the fact he knew how to play teamball, and en- joyed playing with his fellow teammates. Charlie would never get over- heated on poorly officiated calls, which would have caused unnecessary technicalitac. He was more of an abated type of player, and he really con- tributed a comumerable amount of value to Union's team. The names mentioned above were members of the starting lineup. However, the other five players attributed equally an amount of stardom to the team. They still have two to three more years at Union, and they should develop even more finesse and stamina. As mentioned earlier, the Panthers played well during the first part of the season. They were stomping such powers as Morgan State, Hamp- ton institute, Mount Saint Mary's, and Saint Paul's College. But succeed- ing this reign of victory, the Panthers were plagued by some perplexities. Although the Panther experienced a portion of incompatibility, they managed to finish the season as the top fourth ranked team in the North- ern division of the CIAA. The Panther squad was a great one, and they deserved every consumption of happiness and fortitude in which they per- ceived. V V Intermural Basketball The intramural Basketball League also conceived an exuberant period of extravagancy this season. Such teams as the Mad Lads, who went through the season undefeated at 13-0, the Philly-New York Unlim- ited team, the Brothers, and the Faculty and staff were really granting a large amount of joy, excitement, and cheer to the spectators of Virginia Union. Basketball is not only a great sport, but it is also an era of having the privilege of being admired and respected by people who care what life is attributing. May there be many other years of basketball and its certain adherents present at this prestigious institution. Basketball is challenging competent and sometimes, seemingly unfortunate. This is, however, the type of life which is endowed at Virginia Union. lt must con- tinue until its perseverance has been accomplished. The Contral White Andrew Haeley 1 970 71 Cravelyn Williams Captain, Nathan Cannady Joseph Hall Don Evans Clifton Hill James Brown Wilson James Charles Scott by Samuel G. Bailey Willard Bailey, the former assistant coach of the Virginia Union Panthers, has been given the reign as the new head football coach. Mr. Bailey, 33 years of age, is a native of Suf- folk, Virginia. He was graduated from Norfolk State College and received his master's degree from New York University. Coach Bailey is succeeding his pre- decessor Thomas H. Harris, who will remain as the athletic director and as an active member of the physical education faculty. The differentiation occurred Friday, January 8, when Virginia Union University's President Allix B. James stated, "We are undergoing an evaluation of our total athletic program to determine direction." President James also referred to Coach Bailey as being an excellent leader and emphasized that we are confident that he can produce a great team. Mr. Bailey joined the staff of Virginia Union in 1966 after two years as coach at Essex High School in Tappahannock, Virginia. He will coach track at Union. Coach Thomas H. Harris, who will remain bas- ketball coach, a graduate of Wilberforce lOhiol Col- lege, and was a student in Tuskegee and Tennessee A 8. l before migrating to Virginia Union in 1949, and assuming the production of his mighty and powerful football and basketball teams. Mr. Harris has won four CIAA cage tournaments and one CIAA regular season cage title. With two such richly endowed athletes at the helm, VUU seems destined for even greater glory. The Virginia Union track team, composed of some of the world's fastest stars, ended their season with quite a consumption of success. The young men responsible for this added attraction are Frank Davis, Cleveland Johnson, Robert "Gator" Jones, Wayne Wright, Charlie Wayne, and John Eberhart. At the Philadelphia Track Classic in Pennsyl- vania, the team finished 3rd place in the two mile relay. They also clocked a school record of 3 min- utes, twenty-five and eight-tenths seconds, which concluded that Union is really endowed with talented track men.

President The President This is that "Administration" which most of the students on campus accuse of doing everything wrong. This is that huge abstract monolith which is responsible for all the students failings and is totally inhuman and lacking in relevence. This is the administration which is always condemned but never praised. This is the way that most left-wing and authority hating students look upon the officials of this school. This is the way that most left-wing and authority-hating students look upon the officials of this school. This image is totally false and has no bearing on these time-honored and dedicated men and women who could be elsewhere "raking in the bread" but they stay at Va. Union because they love it and want to see her become the best that she can. They have taken to heart the philosophy that is so often talked about but seldom seen. They have gone out to help their black brother, and not just talk about it. Dr. James showed his humanity toward the students in his message to that body in the student handbook LIVING AT VIRGINIA UNION. He said, "One of the advantages of a college our size is the personal element. We want to know you as an individual student and not as a statistic. The President's office maintains an open door policy for all students. During the school year, drop by for a visit." Dean Cherry as well as Dean Talley are new on campus, but they have been seen talking with students almost everywhere. Dr. Ellison is a little more conservative than the others, but he has been known to have some most provocative discussions in his classes. He is also well respected for having served as Va. Unions fourth president and after retiring, returning to the campus to give all students the benefit of his noble wisdom and wide experience. Thus, contrary to the reports radiating from some dissenters, the "Administration" of VUU is hu- mane and looking for ways to become more so. John M. Ellison Franklin J.

McCreary "There is something to be said about persons who touch the lives of other persons. I can say that Dr. McCreary has utilized many methods to assist in the development of Virginia Union stu- dents. He has helped them as much as possible to walk through the door of opportunity to a use- ful and productive life. I have gained great re- spect for him because he has been an inspiration to my life, intellectually as well as spiritually. He cares about students--he had proven this to me. I hope Virginia Union will always have a Dr. Mc- Creary . . ."he is the name of the game." by Sallie M. Shaw Mrs. Pearl M. Mankins "Ive talked with many students from large schools and one of the most often heard complaint is the fact that teachers are so wrapped up in their own little personal worlds, that they don't have time for their students. Here at Union I for one have been fortunate, in that I have met a teacher who "gives a damn." She is Pearl Mankins, pro- fessor of History. Not only has she been interested in my work while in her class, but she has also been interested in me as a person. I am honored to be able to say--Thanks Mrs. Mankins for car- ing." by James W. Peterson Mr. Archibald H. Benson "Being editor of the schools newspaper is a dif- ficult task for many reasons, but the greatest is the lack of co-operation by just about everyone. Sometimes I found myself writing and laying out the entire paper all alone, except for Mr. Benson. He was suppose to be my faculty advisor, but on the job he became more of a friend than any- thing. If given the opportunity to do so, l'd vote for Archibald H. Benson as teacher of the year!" by Everett E. Lewis Miss Iris L. King Miss King is not with us now because she has re- turned to school, but we are hoping for her suc- cess and quick return. "In my opinion, Miss Iris King is one of the most helpful persons I have known since my stay here at Virginia Union. She also possesses the quality of being understand- ing, and considerate as well as being very close to every student in which she comes in contact. Miss King is truly a lovely person, and I am glad that I have met her." by Vernessa James Dedication Mrs. Harris is always on hand to help any student no matter what his problem. Here she talks with Ronald Bowers. Mrs. Ruth C. Harris-The Students' Friend Until Mrs. Ruth C. Harris joined the faculty of Virginia Union University, at the age of 20, there was only one full time teacher in the Commerce Department. And only one major, which was designated as a major in Commerce. When her services became available, clerical course offerings were immediately expanded. In response to the interest demonstrated by many students and applicants, as well as the demand from prospective employers, Mrs. Harris assisted during the next few years in the development of a program of Business Teacher Education, and in 1953 the first two degrees in Commerce-Education were conferred. In 1956 Mrs. Harris was named head of the Commerce Department, succeeding Mr. L. D. Smith who was promoted to the position of Business Manager of the University. During the period 1954-1970, the Commerce enrollment has grown from 85 students to more than 300. Course offerings have been constantly reviewed, enriched, and expanded: and the size of the faculty has increased to six full time teachers and four part time teachers. In 1959, largely due to the effort of Mrs. Harris, several different programs of study were set up in the department to meet the changing needs of the students. They included accounting, business administration, business education and secretarial studies. One of Mrs. Harris's deepest interests through the years has been in the campus chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, a national business fraternity which emphasizes development of competent, aggressive business leadership for the future. She has served as sponsor of the group since 1956 and has enjoyed the many hours devoted to assisting and giving guidance to chapter members in carrying out their programs and projects. When, because of racial integration, the Old Dominion and Virginia State chapters of Phi Beta Lambda were merged into one, Mrs. Harris instilled confidence in her students and encouraged them to become the first chapter from a predominantly black institution to participate in competitive events at the state wide level. They were richly rewarded by earning the right to repre- sent the State of Virginia in national competition that year. In the years that have followed, she has inspired her students and worked with them to help them win numerous awards in both state and national competitions. At the 1970 National Convention the Virginia Union Chapter under her sponsorship received the Coveted Hamden Forkner award, highest honor that can be bestowed upon a local chapter for its outstanding record of performance and achievement during the year. In spite of her busy schedule she has found the time to serve as Assistant State Advisor of Phi Beta Lambda for the past three years. Mrs. Harris was a co-author of PRINCIPLES OF ACCOUNTING, a college accounting textbook published by the Pitman Corporation in 1958. In November, 1962 she became the first woman of her race in the history of the Commonwealth of Virginia to pass the examina- tion for Certified Public Accountants. She hoped that this achievement would serve as an inspiration to her students. In May, 1963 she was named winner of the Delver Women's Club Annual Award for outstanding achievement in her field. During the summer of 1966, Mrs. Harris worked as a summer faculty intern in the General Accounting Department of the Office Prod- ucts Division of International Business Machines Corporation in New York City in order that she might become more familiar with the types of new careers opening up to her students, and would thus be in a better position to help prepare them for such opportunities. In September, 1969 the Commerce-Department which had previously been a part of the Social Science Division became a separate Division of Commerce with Mrs. Harris serving as director. She continues to work persistently for an improved curriculum for the up- grading of the faculty and improved physical facilities. She is involved in the work of numerous faculty committees and currently serves as Chairman of the Curriculum Committee, Chair- man of the Budget and Accounting Implementation Team and Institutional Representative on the Executive Committee of the Mid-Virginia Cluster. This year her activities also included serving as Planning Coordinator for Cooperative Education fa new education venture for Virginia Union University to be implemented during the 1971-72 school yearl and Chairman of the 16-member Cooperative Education Advisory Committee. Mrs. Harris holds the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Virginia State College, the MBA degree in Accounting and Management from New York University and the CPA Certificate from Commonwealth of Virginia and has pursued further studies at Virginia State College, LaSalle University, the University of Virginia, San Diego State College and Virginia Commonwealth University. The 1971 Yearbook Stafflis delighted to dedicate The Panther Yearbook to Mrs. Ruth Harris. Laverne E. Bates, a Business admin- istration major says, "I think that Mrs. Harris is a good teacher. She is interested in her students and is always willing to help them in any way she can. As a person, I also think she is nice and has a friendly personality." Uni Staff ff' 5 .A 1 ,.....,,x ax . Y!

She was the ovenivhelming winner with 6070 of the vote. "Stump" as every one calls her because of her height 44' 11"l is the personification of all the good that Va. Union represents. She is never without a smile or a kind word. She is the vivacious assistant Dean of Pledges of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, cheerleader, and "Miss Kappa Alpha Psi" 1970-71. Her major, sociology, is prepar- ing her for work as a psychiatric social worker. After graduation from VUU she plans to attend graduate school at American University in Washington, D.C. Although she stays constantly busy, Cecilia finds time for various hobbies which include tennis, read- ing and arts and crafts. "Honored," was the word she used to describe her delight over her new title. "I would like to ex- press my appreciation to all the stu- dents and I will do all in my power to live up to the standards and ideals of a queen representing the student body." Miss Sandra Burno, the first runner up iabovel was escorted to the coronation ball by Mr. Melvin Childs. Sandra is a Senior and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. Mr. Chenner Smith, Vice President of the Student Government Association, lleftl saw to it that Miss Thompson was well escorted. Miss Alicia Hawkes, lbelowl is always radiant but was exceedingly so, as Mr. William Carter escorted her to the ball to take her place as second runner up for the crown. - mf, . ,mag ,. ff A .gi !?g fri vsfgs ff :4tS,LM,'igf , l , .1 .,., ,Y so 1,4 7: ff 41,-q,,-rf 4- W1 rig- 2 'P , ' My Q, My , f.,.,,, K, at ',g',f'fXf v'f??2,E,5Li-Aye ' ,,lg,t, fsf'-sf, rt.. ., f.,1l wi, new ,- , rf-mzpff, , Hagge- f 2,4-5-4. . ,-,.

N- Q There has been a brewing controversy over the role of the female in society and especially concerning her position on the college campus. Since the average coed is under 21 and, therefore, has not reached the age of reason, administrators at many institutions feel a paren- tal obligation to restrict her freedom. Women on the oth- er hand are demanding liberalization. American females everywhere resent the fact that they remain the only ele- ment of society against whom discrimination is tolerated and even encouraged. Gradually the protests are mount- ing, but from the looks of things liberalization at Virginia Union will be "a long time acomin." .W mwwwwtpm Wggfw ,tv , A 1 I wx 5' K , , Q V' gi Wm ti M nf ' 45,5 pf' 4? .- My if Q ,1 ,f M , ', ,H .QHKT . ,W V ,, v ,, ,W S af ' Ak -. j, ., ,A 2 x 4 a i ,J I ', 9 5 ' , . -.

Formal dating would probably decline and the traditional escort would no longer be needed. The one time "social hurricane" would be removed from her pedestal and soon considered man's equal. Pampering, door opening and other luxuries may well be replaced by dutch-treat and other such horrors. The question is not whether the Union coed can handle it, but can she stand it. 4 Sweethearts Ball The ball proved to be the social event of the year tcenterl as Barry Boykins and Mary Haynes ttopl stopped dancing long enough to pose for the photographer. James Peterson and Sallie Shaw tbelowl said they had a "ball." This year the annual Sweetheart's Ball sponsored by the Women's Sen- ate was a successful and heart warming occasion. The formal af- fair, held in the Student Center, was given for the entire student body and each woman invited the escort of her choice. During the gala affair all the Sweethearts of campus or- ganizations were presented and treated with the cult of royalty. The seventeen Sweethearts, Stun- ning in their multi-colored gowns, added a taste of elegance to the evening which had been planned with elaborate decorations, soft lights romantic as well as jam rock- ing music. , V-alla W i ' '?'!'F5t'i oQf A it ht, Q f elmo i ' ,""t ID 1 -.

Mother-Daughter Weekend was held on the campus April 17-19, 1970. Many mothers were pres- ent to attend the event from Virginia and other states. Activities began on Friday evening at 8:00 p.m. with a reception at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Allix B. James, for the mothers, daughters and faculty. The weekend featured various activities that kept the mothers and daughters enjoyably busy and active. They attended a fraternity dance, took a bus tour of the city of Richmond and participated in a talent and fashion show. The highlight of the weekend festivities was the banquet. This year it was in the College Inn and the main address was given by Mrs. Xernona B. Clayton, Director of Community Relations, Atlanta Model Cities Programg Newspaper Columnist, Atlanta Voiceg and hostess of the "Xernona Clayton Show." Mrs. Clarissa K. Dillard, retired Associate Professor, labovel presents Certificate of Honor to Robert D. Pharr, '39 after his Iectu re. In 1954, a group of faculty members headed by Dr. Mary E. Johnson as chairman, pledged themselves to the establishing of a fine arts fesitval at Virginia Union and this fesitval has been devoutly held annually headed by this same Dr. Johnson as chairman each year. Ac- cording to Dr. Johnson the festival has prog- ressed rapidly from the days when the commit- tee operated without a budget and had to per- form odd tasks in order to raise money for the festival. On April 19, 1970, Virginia Union will begin its 17th Annual Fine Arts Festival. Dr. Johnson, in a recent interview, was very optimistic about the festival inspite of the fact that there had been a slight decline in enthusiasm for the fes- tival the last two or three years. She emphasized the fact that from the initial festival, a great deal of attention has been devoted each year to Blacks in the arts. An impressive list of Blacks who have participated in past festivals bear out this fact. Some artists on that list in- clude-sculptress, Thelma Burkeg lecturer, A. B. Jacksong writers, J. Saunders Redding, Gwendolyn Brooks, Leroi Jones and Don Lee. Twice the festival has had a complete exhibit of Black art from the Atlanta University Mu- seum. Some highlights of the festival included performances by the VUU Players, the choir, a dance group, a poetry art group, a black poet Fine Arts Festival J-.f.,.w.g -fam.: . V ,,.w.gr,. M - .

After critical evaluation, the faculty and some outside judges for art works announced the winners or competition in selected categories. Urban Seminar i'?T's- This year seventeen Virginia Union University and Concordia students met at Virginia Union Un- iversity to discuss urban problems. Their exposure ran the gamut from an hour and a half conference with President Nixon's special assistant for urban planning to visiting a family in the heart of the ghetto to view first hand living conditions there. ln all, forty-five resourceful people were directly involved with lectures, meeting with and counsel- ing seminar participants. The two week experience was stimulating, disturbing, demanding and produc- tive. The students' evaluation re- vealed this to be one of their most important educational experiences. They investigated independently and in concert with all types of com- munity resources, the areas of housing, welfare, employment, law enforcement, general ghetto con- ditions, cultural opportunities in ur- ban areas, urban education, racial tension, the urban church and philosophical differences concern- ing attitudes about social change. Their explanations were supported and made more vividly real by their own difficulties in working out in- terracial situations among them- selves. Black, White, rural, Baptist, Lutheran, Liberal, urban, conserva- tive differences all manifested themselves within the seminar group and enabled them, through the microcosm of their world, to better understand the urban com- munities which they were exploring. 'N-. -at U l The secretary ol Housing and Urban De- velopment of Washington, D.C. fleftl told students of the major problems found in the urban society of today.

Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado-Cliff Palace is the largest known cliff dwelling from a point near Sun Temple. It was in- habited ln about 450 AD. Students observed the ruins and were informed of the history of the settlement. The group was invited by Fort Lewis Indian students to a "pow wow" or a so- cial get together. This year twenty-four Virginia Union University and Concordia stu- dents, with the aid of Dr. William H. Anderson, meet at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, to discuss and study the Indian situa- tion in the United States today. Fort Lewis, with its long history in Indian education, its proximity to the major centers of Indian culture and life in the Southwest, and with the knowledge of its faculty and its li- brary holdings provided a unique location for the intensive two week exploration. Every attempt was made to pro- vide each participant with a com- prehensive inter-disciplinary under- standing of Indian histories, cul- tures and relationships with non- Indian groups. There were field trips to the Navajo Nation tribal headquarters, Mesa Verde National Park, archeological excavation sites, and centers of Anglo, Hispanic and Indian contact. Students had an opportunity to meet with members of the Ute, Navajo, Apache, and other tribes. They learned from them and others, such as Vista Vol- unteers, about the present prob- lems of Indian Americans and alter- native solutions to those problems.

The Council on Religion The purpose of the Council on Religion is to coordinate all functioning religious groups on the campus under one uni- fied body. lt has one of its major projects, the planning and execution of a Religious Emphasis Week. The Council on Re- ligion also tries to encourage individual students to become interested in the Christian group of their choice by sponsor- ing various activities through the entire school year. Beta Kappa Chi Beta Kappa Chi is a scientific honorary society. The aims of the society are to provide an answer to a need for an organized associ- ation to stimulate and encourage undergraduate and graduate edu- cation in the field of science, to inspire and support the continued pursuit of knowledge and achieve- ment and to capture scientific truths during the entire career of each member. The chapter on Virginia Union's campus which was established in the 1950's was the ninth chapter to be established. The society con- sists of qualified undergraduate and graduate students of the sci- ences. The qualifications include at a 3.0 in all the sciences and at least 43 hours. There are chapters in sixteen states organized into four regions under the supervision of two vice-presidents, who, along with the president, secretary-trea- surer, editors-in-chief of the Beta Kappa Chi Bulletin and four coun- cils of eleven are responsible for the business of the society between National Conventions. In 1967 Union Flight attended the Regional Convention which was held at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Later that year, they went to the National Conven- tion which was held at Wilberforce University in Wilberforce, Ohio. At the convention, research papers were presented by undergraduate students, graduate students and faculties in all areas of biology, chemistry, physics and mathemat- ics.

French Club The composition of the members in the French Club includes French majors "etudiants" studying the language and those who complete courses in French. The aim of the French Club is to acquaint the mem- bers with the priceless heritages of French culture- literature, dance, paintings, sculpture, and music-em- bracing several of the many distinct elements of the Fine Arts related to France. The French Club also sponsors many activities for social enjoyment and entertainment, the annual Christ- mas Party, sponsoring of "French Weel" which not on- ly involves students on campus interested in French traditions, but also promotes participation involving area high schools as well as other collegiate institu- tions in the Richmond area. The outstanding achieve- ments the French Club has been honored with during the annual Homecoming activities can only influence each new and perspective member in the French Club to contribute his time and energy to maintain this high level of achievement. This year the French Club is incorporating anoth- er main objective into its plans, which is to sharpen and refine the aesthetic experiences gained from both an intellectual view of France and an enlightenment of the excellence in taste found in "Les Beaux-Arts." Our first intention is to attend "Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme" presented by "Le Treateau De Paris avec Les Come- diens Des Champs-Elysees" at the University of Rich- mond in February. We expect all our members to support the French Club diligently. Seated, left-right: Cynethia Savoy, presidentg Carolyn Garyg Miss Evelyn C. Baker, Sponsorg Stella Davisg Margaret Murray.

Upward Bound students are gen- erally admitted after completion of the 10th or 11th grades. They live on the college campus during the summer and participate in a variety of academic, social, and cultural activities. There is also an academ- ic year component which enables Upward Bound students to have a continuous program throughout the entire year. Upward Bound project staff selects students on the recommen- dations of teachers, counselors, so- cial service agencies, and others who are well acquainted with them. Upward Bound is not seeking the "A" student who will go to college in any case. Rather, it seeks to help apathetic, possibly hostile, youths with academic potential who have not had the preparation, motivation, or opportunity to realize or demon- strate their talents. The on-campus summer program consists of a 6-to 8-week session which varies by college and geo- graphical area. It normally empha- sizes reading, writing, and other basic communication skills. There are courses in arts and sciences, field trips, and cultural events. Upward Bounders talk with artists and performers, observe various events, and write about their experiences in an attempt to broad- en their horizon and gain perspec- tive and understanding. During the academic year, stu- dents are in contact with Upward Bound teachers, counselors, or tu- tors through meetings, classes, home visits, counseling sessions, or tutorials. Upward Bound's successful im- pact results from individual instruc- tion and counseling, small classes, teachers who care and can com- municate, college students who live with Upward Bounders during the summer, and intensive student and parent participation. Upward Bound a The UPWARD BOUND student is a young person with academic po- tential who because of his poverty background has not had the motiva- tion or preparation to use or demon- strate this potential. Typically this student may be apathetic or even hostile because he comes from a disadvantaged environment unable to help him release his real talent, or he has shunned meaningful edu- cational pursuits because of in- adequate school experiences. Quite often the potential that such a stu- dent possesses may not show in traditional measurements, such as Upward Bound is not all academics but sports fabove left and below rightl.

The UPWARD boy or girl is one for whom a college education may become possible given experiences and instruction necessary to overcome earlier obstacles.

We worked, we played but for four years? Then we look the other way into tomorrow. Suddenly we're not so tall as we thought we were and not so smart. But we find that somehow we learned a decisive lesson we wouldn't have had without the teachers and administration, without our fellow students-a direction into that uncertain tomorrow. lt can never be so dark again though the world may change and the times change and we change. 5.
