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.

The Death of Coburn Chapel
Coburn Chapel died on May 16,
1970 at about 2 a.m. The causes,
as yet are unknown. Arson is sus-
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
Dr. Allix B. James, VUU President,
indicated that it is unusual for a fire
not deliberately set to spread so
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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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-
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.

band? For some years Union was with-
out a band, then one was formed, but
they did not have uniforms. Yet that
fact did not dampen their spirits. This
year however they were fortunate
enough to remedy this situation. This
year a new band leader, Mr. Terry
Miller, also took over and allowed the
band to really "do their thing."

Each year the staff for the creation of a
yearbook is formed with many persons all
wanting to produce the best book possible. This
year was no exception. 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.

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-

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
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.
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.
The Chemistry Club, one of
Union's newest organizations, is by

for everything from the latest recruit-
ers and employment possibilities to
a forum for the latest advancements
in Chemical Research, and unfortun-

The Newman Apostolic Club, a member of the Council of Religion, is
organized for the benefit of Catholic students. Virginia Union Chapter is af-
filiated with Virginia Commonwealth University, Hampton lnstitute, Norfolk

support, the Newman Club has seeked to help in community action and to
help in an enrichment of cultural life for college students.
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."
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
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.

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.

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-
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

ways. The method used to accomplish their goals

The Panthers played a rough and tumbling season
this year, but their efforts were to no avail. They ended
with a 3 to 6 record this term.
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.
But Luther Palmer kicked only one conversion, in
three tries and therein lay the margin of defeat. The fi-
nal score-Panthers 19, Norfolk 21.

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
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.

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-
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.

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
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

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
This is the way that most left-wing and authority hating students look upon the officials of this
This is the way that most left-wing and authority-hating students look upon the officials of this
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.

Dr. Edward D. 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."

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-
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."

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
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
Mrs. Harris was a co-author of PRINCIPLES OF ACCOUNTING, a college accounting textbook published by the Pitman Corporation
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
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
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."

Washington, D.C. was elected by
the entire student body to reign as
Miss Union 1970-71. She was the
ovenivhelming winner with 6070 of
"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
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-

-fx I - 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."

The average coed is ready for her freedom--ready
in the sense that she has long anticipated it, but is she
ready for the social changes which she would soon be
forced to face. 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

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-

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-

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.
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. In a "rap" ses-
sion fbelowy students were given an op-
portunity to question all the authorities.

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 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

Upward Bound is an attempt to
help high school students from low-
income families develop the skills
and motivation necessary for suc-
cess in college.
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,
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.
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

Four years is a long time, too long to forget. We look around and ask where did it
go? 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.
