Carolina GREENSBORO On Monday morning, March 3, despite the snow and uncertainty of pend ing weather with its forecast of more snow, a station wagon pulled out of Bennett College bound for Beaufort, S. C. more than seven hours away. It car ried a cargo of four students, including the student body president, the college's devel opment officer, and more than 20 cases of foodstuff. The food, collected by the student body of the all*girl school, was earmarked to be distributed by the Beaufort branch of the NAACP to help relieve the hunger in Beaufort and Jasper Counties brought to light recently by a Senate com mittee investigating hunger in America. Doris Scott, president of the student body of the 680 student school is hoping tint other colleges in the area will follow suit and has called on them to lend their support to similar projects at their schools. In addition, she has written letters of thanks to Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota, chairman of the Senate com mittee on nutrition and human needs, and Ernest Hollings of South Carolina, a committee member "for the concern you have shown for people suffer ing from malnutrition and hunger." Bennett students, tradition ally active in community af fairs, conceived of the idea Annual Woman's Week Held At Winston-Salem Last Week WINSTON SALEM - Be cause of her unique position, the Black woman has a special responsibility to institute change in a white society that * i * PROGRESS PLAZA in Phila delphia is the nation's first Negro-owned shopping center. Wilford Smith, who manages the A & P supermarket there, says "it's beautiful!" Last Rites Held For A. O. Pamplin At Mount Vernon Last rites for Alpha Omega Pamplin 69, were held at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church Sun day, March 2, at 1:00 p.m. The eulogy was delivered by the pastor, Rev. E. T. Browne. Pamplin, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Alexander was born in Halifax County, Virginia where he remained un til he moved to Durham a long number of years ago, after which he joined Mt. Vernon where he was a faithful mem ber up to the time of his Illness and death. In 1952 he was married to Mrs. Mary Hughes High, who survives him. For 26 years he was employed at N. C. College, retiring July 1,1965. In addition to his wife, he is survived by five sisters: Mrs." Ruth Cameron, South Boston, Virginia; Mrs. Ada Johnson and Mrs. Naomi Thorpe, Lynchburg, Va.; Mias Fannie Pamplin and Mrs. George McKenney, New York, N. Y.; one granddaughter, Mrs. Morion Yvette Gray of Durham and many other relatives. Active pallbearers were: Wade Canrington, Joseph Lang ley, Eddie Page, Chester Spells, Ray Von Smith, Jesse Hayes, Marvin Roberts and Claude Henry. from television and newspaper reports of the widespread pov erty and hunger that exists in many counties throughout the South. Particularly touching was the picture of an 82-year o1 d Beaufort County woman pumping water outside her shack, and underneath the caption . . . 'And Sometimes I Just Eat Dry Grits.' Dr. Isaac H. Miller, Bennett president, heartily endorsed the undertaking and pitched in with items of his own. Devel opment officer Theodore Car tre and Miss Scott coordinated the effort. The project took approxi mately one week and conclud ed Feb. 28. The shipment in cluded all types of canned meats, vegetables, fruit, and milk, plus dry cereals and pow dered milk. Many of the girls used all of their money in the drive except that needed for essentials. Receptacles were placed in the student union to hold the goods and signs were promi nently displayed concerning the action in all areas of the campus. With students all over the country presenting demands for change these days, the action of the Bennett girls shows what can be done when young people's energy is channeled in the right direction. Officials, rightfully, are hopeful that this type of involvement is the an swer. has given blacks the short end of the stick. So said Mrs. Robert Cum mings last week to students at Winston-Salem State College, Wkwton-Salem, during a pro gram marking the college's an nual women's week celebration. Mrs. Cummings, who with her husband will study in Afri ca this summer, is an English instructor at Winston-Salem State. "Traditionally women have been very dominant features in the black families," Mrs. Cummings said. She said that when black people were brought to Ame rica they were put into a com pletely new culture and that whites did not try to learn nor understand the African's way of life. Whites tried to make the blacks change by ridiculing their culture, she said. "But in the white's attempt to destroy the culture, they practically destroyed the black male," Mrs. Cummings said. After slavery was ended, she said, black women could And work, but black men had only limited employment opportu nities, which further weakened his position in the family. "If there were a man around the house, families were denied welfare," she said. "For these reasons men left home in order that their families might be provided for. The black wom an then had to become both mother and father." Because women have deve loped this special position in the black culture, she said, "we are extremely necessary to the movement toward black pow er." She cited Mrs. Shirley Chi solm, the new congresswoman from New York, and Mrs. Rosa Parks, who helped start dese gregation of transportation fa cilities in the South, as exam ples of black women who have already done a great deal. "Black women in influential, powerful positions have, can and must continue to help other blacks change the discri minations practiced in indus try, government and life," Mrs. Cummings said. "When this is%)ne, women will have helped greatly in de molishing the existing white society, and it will all be ac- complished because you will have dared to expend your energies in the black commu nities." Interment was at Beech wood Cemetery. A k H n' vMHtPHH - /m)\ V BROTHERHOOD AWARDS O. K.
