Patronize Equal j' Blacks rn _ T? JnO Hill by Robert Eller Chronicle Staff Reporter A group of black students at Forsyth Technical Institute are organizing a black Student Union (BSU) at the Institution, . it *t- * ? ii was icanicu tfUS weeK. In an interview at the campus earlier this week members of the newly formed organization charged that black students were not being represented and added that the BSU plans to eliminate this. Bendetta Shows, president of the BSU, said the )own: / ML? 1 [ierea the door the man tried to force his way in. When Miss Clemons resisted he shot her between the eyes, entered the cafe and shot her three more times as she lay on the floor. Adding to the tragedy of the incident was/ the fact that nothing yas taken. Money was still in the cash register when police arrived. Unconfirmed reports this week indicated that Miss Clemons, a former WinstonSalem State University student, may be paralyzed. Sources in the Winston-Salem Police Department indicated that Miss Clemons may be able to tell the police more about the incident at a later date. At the time of the shooting Miss Clemons described the gunman as a black male about 35 years old, five feet-five inches tall, 150 pounds with a mustache and wearing a brown and yellow flowered shirt and brown pants. Opportu iALEAi i Form d Inju^ organization was first formed in June of this year to promote unity among minorities at Forsyth Teclf. The organization presently has a membership of about 30 students. Miss Shows said that the organization is now in the process of trying to obtain a charter. 11 We turned a copy ol our constitution over to the Student Government Association President (Dave May) but it was neither accepted or rejected/' she said. Some of the BSU members feel that there is an attempt to stop the BSU from being chartered. One member charged that May did not even read the BSU's constitution. John Hayes another BSU member said the BSU was being overlooked because the Mi^S ShflU/S caiH ^ JWIVJ IIIUI finance is the major problem of the BSU at this time. She stated that a letter was sent to Harley Affeldt, the school's President, requesting funds for the BSU, and Affeldt's reply stated that there were funds only for the S.G.A.

John Hayes stated that the schools constitution stipulates that candidates for 1 office must be full-time students carrying 12 or more f? hours during the quarter. Hayes contends that neither the SGA vice-president or secretary were full-time students when elected. He added that this fact was pointed out 1 to both Charlie King, Director of Students and President Affeldt but nothing was done. 9 But BSU further charged that there are no lines of communication between black students and-ihe SGA. None of the school*s SGA officers are black even though enrollment of blacks at the school is more than 20%. BSU representatives say they will continue efforts to get their organization chartered. Miss Shows said the BSU wants to perform the functions that the SGA should perfrm but have failed to do so. i W J* ip ne Soul oaked' House last weekend as 76 kfckoff. zrtisers
