Shirley Chisholm to Speak
The Fayetteville State University Lyceum Program Committee will present U. S.
Congresswoman from the State of New York, Mrs. Shirley Chisholm, Monday, March 3, at 8 p.m. in
the J. W. Seabrook Auditorium on campus.
The public is invited to attend and the admission is free.
In 1968, Mrs. Shirley Chisholm attained the highest elective post ever held by a black woman in
America and became the first black woman to serve in the U. S. House of Representatives.
Mrs. Chisholm was born Shirley St. Hill on November 30,1924, in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant,
New York City’s second most infamous ghetto and the heart of her present congressional district.
Being a native of the area was a tremendous plus for her in the race against former CORE head
James Farmer, who was celebrated for his freedom bus rides and other civil rights work.
She easily defeated Farmer for the district and when she arrived in Washington, Mrs. Chisholm
publicly opposed House leaders over her assignment to comijjittees on forests and villages, forcing
an unprecedented re-assignment to the Veterans Affairs Committee.
Charisma, spunk, and determination are words frequently used to characterize the manner and
personality of the first black women to occupy a seat in the U. S. House of Representatives.
The daughter of a factory worker and a domestic seamstress, Mrs. Chisholm is married to
She received a scholarship to Brooklyn College after graduating from a girls’ high school in
Brooklyn. She later graduated cum laude in sociology and taught in a nursery school and earned a
master’s degree in elementary education at Columbia University.
Presently serving her second term in Congress, one of the main highlights of Mrs. Chisholm’s
political career was her unsuccessful bid for the Presidency of the United States.
FSU STUDENTS DOIVATE

given Miss Little their support. . \ ^

ALL THE WAY
Many of us will never become a millionaire
So get an education and the “Whites” can
Judge us on what we wear.
Don’t walk around with the attitude I care less
Try brotherly unity and the black world must progress.
In what ever you do and say
Make it the best to help overcome someday.
It has been said the black man is an inferior man,
and we’re looked upon as an outcast.
But with love, this doesn’t have to last.
Be ready at all times to perform your duty.
And consider yourself black, for it is a beauty.
It’s not the content nor the color of the skin
It is qualification that helps a brother to be elected
and then win.
Learn to live without a world of clamity
And see don’t our world become a reality.
CAR WASH TIME - These FSU coeds are washing cars for their sorority. Hope they got the cars
clean, because this lensman did not let them clean his.

February is the month for lovers and the 14th the day for love,
so come on Broncos and love everybody. Velentine’s Day has
come and gone and cupid’s arrow has pierced some hearts and
speared some hearts. What did it really mean - all the chocolates
and cremes, dolls and cards? Well, a valentine is no measure of
love; but, then neither is a degree a measure of knowledge; but, it
says something for trying. “Did he remember or did he forget?”
Maybe next year!
A word of wisdom to the “man in HER life” - “If you want it
to be a little warmer in February than it was in January, don’t
forget the sweets for the sweet!”
Remember — Love is REMEMBERING.
A 3-DIMENSION HISTORY
(Past, Present, and Promise)
Black History Week spurred from an effort on the part of Mr.
Carter G. Woodson, an honorary member of the Omega Psi Phi
Fraternity, to convince leaders everywhere that the literary
achievements of black people should be celebrated annually for
the study of Negro life and history. He soon began this activity
which was sponsored by the Fraternity. It is an event to inspire us
not to play up to our grievances but to demonstrate what we have
actually achieved in spite of our handicaps and stimulate us to
achieve greater things. Until one day our history won’t be
celebrated once a year for one week out of the year but every day
in the history books and textbooks of America and the world.
REGISTRATION -- WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
“Speaking of registration, I remember. I remember pre
registration, which I though would shorten my actual registration
time. But I also remember long hours of waiting in line during
registration. Did I go wrong?”
The above is a complaint voiced by many students since this
semester’s registration, but according to Mr. W. R. Campbell
these students may or may not have gone wrong. But open up
your minds and be aware that right and wrong are defined by the
situation to which it applies and the person involved, r^pectively.
After a recent conference with our university registrar I realize
the many branches involved in carrying on one registration
Every student must register in order to become a member of
any class and to obtain a grade for that class. And in order to do
this there are three main steps which a student must take. The
student must, in logical order, obtain the registration material,
get advised and fill in the class schedule, and pay fees or be
cleared by the business office. Every student should be aware of
these three steps and exercise accuracy as well as responsibility
in carrying them out. It’s not enough at the end of registration
that you are in the right class at the correct time. If you haven’t
been responsible enough to double check everything that
anybody, including your advisor, has put on your computer cards,
then you have gone wrong.
The problems of our last register session can partially be
attributed to a lack of co-ordination and a difference between plan
and calendar. Once you got inside the Administration Building on
the morning of pre-registration you should have had your packet
in your hand within an hour. The long, disgusting delay outside
the Lilly Gymnasium was caused by the registration schedule
which allowed students to pick up their packets one day before the
Business Office opened, so once the Business Office opened on
Thursday morning, they were already a day or 500 students,
behind. And they never really caught up, but, then, how could
We, as students, feel that after pre-register we should just
pick up our class cards and go to class. But we can’t do it that
way, because what we are dealing with is an attitude of total pre-
regikration before vacation and paying fees after we return. But
you can’t go to the movies before you buy your ticket. Therefore,
it becomes necessary for students, at registration, to pick up the
cards for the requested classes, clear their bills, and have these
cards stamped before we can be permitted to classes.
Also, registration becomes a more strenuous exercise when a
student has to go to the advisor for a second time .This is often due
to the closing of a class because it was filled or enough sections
were not provided for; but, too often this hold up is caused by tl\e
wrong information being put on the clas&card. If you requested a ,
particular class and put the wrong computer number you could
end up in a completely different course or if the numbers are too
farfetched, in no class at all. So now you need someone to tell you
what you did wrong and what you must do to correct it. But
remember, if you find yourself in a class that you did not want you
must officially drop the class, by the drop-add procedure, or you
will get a grade for the class and of course, you have failed - this
grade is not removable, it stays with you the rest of your life.
Likewise, if we register by mail, or any means, and all of a
student’s classes are closed, on the first day of classes that
student’s name will not appear on any class roster and without
readvisement and another try at registration that student is no
longer a member of the FSU family. Registration by mail is not
too farfetched, there’s no telling what 5ie future and progress
