A Tribute To John F. Kennedy Who’s Who FSC RcvicWS ’63 EvCIltS
Our great leader has been slain.
But his soul of ideas will reign
Throughout the land for unity and peace,
For our enslaved brothers to be released.
Never in the history of this world
Have human rights been so unfurled.
Our thoughts for him should be enshrined
For he died for the cause of aU mankind.
Always when justice is prevailing
Hatred and prejudice are assailing.
Two vices to one virtue are at odds.
Justice wil Itriumph, it is of God.
But in clinging to this justice, we must
“Ask not what our country can do for us,
But ask what can vve do for our country.”
Then our justice will become a reality.
Kennedy had a remedy for this land
As he was slain by the assassin’s hand.
He had a remedy for hatred and strife
And for this cause he lost his life.
The world has experienced a great leas.
Bravely, he died for a great cause.
A cause for you and me,
For our future and destiny.
Where will we go from here? Oh where?
Only God can guide us safely there.
There, where Kennedy had forseen,
A land of reality and not of dream.
A land where aU brothers are free,
A land not of dream but of reality.
That was Kennedy’s idea for America,
Land of the brave, home of the free.

A highly entertaining program,
KALEIDOSCOPE, was presented
'!!> the T W. Seabrook Auditorium
as a number from our Lyceum
schedule. This was a musical pro
gram featuring Irving Barnes,
baritone; Martha Flowers, so
prano; Doris Galiber, mezzo-so-
prano, and Garrett Morris, tenor.
Tliough the program as a whole
was thoroughly arousing, the aud
ience — according to tempo and
reaction — seemed to prefer the
foUowing numbers from the first
half of the program: “Let Their
Celestial Concert All Unite”
from Handel’s SAMSON, “Unbel
Di” from Puccini’s MADAM BUT
TERFLY and sung by Martha
Flowers ,“An Enterprise of Mar
ital Kind,” and “In Contemplative
Fashion” both from THE GON
DOLIERS by Gilbert and Sullivan,
and “Geographical Fague” by
The second half of the program
was centered around excerpts from
Bernstein’s WEST SIDE STORY,
Alenotti’s THE MEDIUM, and
Gershwin's PORGY AND BESS.
There was absolutely no lack of
enthusiasm for the various well-
known selections from WEST SIDE
STORY which included “Tonight,
Tonight.” “I Feel Pretty,” “Make
of Our Hearts One Heart,” and
No less entertaining was Doris
Caliber’s portrayal of the gray
haired fortune-teller in an excerpt
from “The Medium.”
The chmax, if there can be a
climax to such fine entertainment,
came with the presentation of ex
cerpts from the celebrated PORGY
AND BESS. Here, Martha Flowers
sang “Summertime”; Irving
Barnes sang “I Got Plenty of Noth
ing”; “Talking ’Bout Devil Crabs”
was enacted by Garrett Morris,
while “Strawberries” was done by
Miss Galiber. This was followed by
the portrayal of Porgy and Bess
by Mr. Barnes and Miss Flowers
who sang respectively “Bess, You
Is My Woman” and “I Is Your
For an encore, the group sang
“There’s No Hiding Place Down
Truly, tliis was one oi the most
