“One donut and a cup of coffee please.”
“We can’t serve you, we haven’t got the facilities.”
“But you have china, and glasses, and silver galore!”
“Get up wise guy, and leave this store.”
“Why are you scornful of the Negro race?”
“Because all you Negroes should stay in your place.”
“Stay in my place; I don’t understand.
Just where is my place in this democratic land?”
Is it on the front line as in World War II?
I could name many more; but that war will do.
Let’s stop all this bickering and face the real fact,
There’s more to this scorn than my face being black.
Fear of miscegenation has turned you this way.
But it’s been here over two centuries, and increasing everyday.
I think this half-hour has been well spent.
At least you forfeit a sale, and my twenty cents.
Now, before I go. I’d like to say,
That I’ll return tomorrow, to just sit and pray.
I’m not the violent type as you can see,
Because I have Ghandi’s principle in me.
America, the “Land of the Free,” exemplifying liberty and pros
Just a First class citizenship will be enough for me.
If to passive resistance you do consent.
Let this sit-down be just the commencement.
I bid you, Good-day, but if you think I have lied,
Take stock of the latter, and let your conscience guide.

Mr. C. W. Gregory
Speaks at Tea
Mr. Chester W. Gregory, Social
Science Professor at Elizabeth City
State Teachers College, spoke to the
Social Studies Club of P. W. Moore
Junior-Senior High School at a Tea
on May 18.
“The Social Scientist in an Age of
Protest,” was the topic presented by
Mr. Gregory. He stated that the
young people of today can do a great
deal in helping to keep peace. “I
think there should be a universal pro
test against the use of atomic weapons
in case of war” further elaborated
Wilson Bunch, Charles Everett and
Henry Pickett were representatives
who attended the tea. Charles Everett
is a P. W. High School graduate.
Social Studies Class
Visits Washington, D. C.
The members of the Social Studies
Class under the supervision of Mrs.
E. A. Eaton had a very educational
trip to Washington, D. C. on May 3.
They left the campus 2:20 a.m. ar
riving in Washington at 8:00. For
a day in the capital city they were
first class citizens.
After breakfast at the Trailway
Bus Station, they began their tour.
The first place visited was the White
House where President Eisenhower
lives. From there they went to the
Bureau of Engraving where they ob
served some of the processes in the
making of our money. The Washing
ton Monument, which honors our
first President of the United States
was a place of great interest to the
group; also the Smithsonian Institute
at which one can trace the progress
made by the outstanding pioneers
from yesterday up to the present time.
At the United States Supreme Court
the class was served lunch and also
taken on a tour of the building.
The Library of Congress, the State
Capital, Lincoln Memorial and Jef
ferson Memorial were other places
visited in the afternoon.
The changing of the guards at
Arlington, Virginia was the last in
teresting historical scene witnessed.
On the way back, the class stopped
for a snack at Forest View Restau
rant at Petersburg.
At 11:00 Tuesday night the class
arrived on campus. The trip was in
deed enjoyed by all, and a great deal
of worthwhile information was gain
ed from the excursion.
Dr. Winston, we love you;
We honor your name.
No matter where you go
You’ll have fame.
We know that to you
We’ll owe much of our success
For our experience tells
That you’re one of the best.
To you we hail.
To give what we owe
We shall never fail.
In a sad voice we bid “Adieu”—
But always . . . always . . .
To you, we’ll be true.

Recently, the Tests and Measure
ment Classes under the direction of
Mr. Taylor Jackson attended the
O’Berry School and Cherry Hospital
at Goldsboro, North Carolina.
Many interesting facts were learned
by the students as they toured the
school and talked with the children.
A guide supplied the classes with in
formation which was vital. He stated
that the school was divided into two
areas. There is the academic school
where the child is taught to read,
write and spell, work arithmetic and
draw; also the school for basic train
ing in which the child learns to bathe
himself, brush his teeth, button his
clothing and tie shoes. However, the
guide stated that some children are

as how to get to the bathroom, get

At the Cherry hospital for the men

as they sat in the windows. One of
them hollered “T. C. or A. & T.”

“S. T. C.” A member of the group

make so large a collection readily ac
cessible, the books are grouped into
grade categories and are numbered

logue. The scope of the exhibit is

Adventure to story books and trans

Books on exhibit, a cooperative
promotional enterprise of the coun

through the organized exhibit and the
covered catalogue — to provide
school personnel, teachers, and libra

the best of the new library books,
with a minimum expenditure of time
and effort, and thus make it possible
for them, to do an informed and in

The general public, and certainly
parents, found the exhibit of special
interest and welcomed the opportuni
