may, 1965 THE COMPASS PAGE FIVE Do We Cherish Our Nation? By Ella M. Ivory Several times in recent months, the Chief Executive of our nation has felt the need to assure his fellow-Americans that this country is constantly striving for peace, that America is a great nation, and its leaders arc i'mong the most qualified in the world. As I listened to President Johr- son on television (he was s"e.ikip: on the Dominican crisis), and as I watched the expressions of sin cerity and earnesty on his solemn features, my heart just swelled with pride. Yes, I was proud be cause of the realization that America has a strong leader, that j America is a great and prosperous | nation, and that we as citizens, re 1 wealthy just because we are Ameri- j cans. I During these few moments of' intense "meditation." several thoughts came to me: Do we re member to be patriotic by even re- ' calling the sweet lines “O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain—F o r purple mountain ’ majesties above the fruited pl iins"? ' Do we think of the symbol of the ' American flag and hope so Ion" may it wave not only over the land of the free and the home of i the brave, but over all peoples who ; believe in liberty? Now. as we go about our pe"-- sonal tasks, let us stop to be grate- ' ful for the “wealth” that is our in- j heritance because We are Amcri- ' cans. Yes, “As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer, let u>^ all be grateful for a world that is fair." Let us cherish our great nation, i Let us as citizens strive to make Annual College Day Observed Each year, the faculty, staff, and administration of ECSC honor eraduating seniors by allowing them to share a pood deal of their responsibilities for a day. On the thirteenth of April, this privii.’gc w'.is given to the graduating class of 1965. To have looked into the faces of the majority of our seniors on s\ich an auspici.nis occasion, one would have thought it was '.he long-awaited “D" Day. (Diplo ma Day.) They were given individual posi tions ranging from the president's swivel-chair to clock-punchcr in the dining hall. For some reason most classes that day reported full attend mce records! When ask ed about his experience one senic replied. “It was neat.” Another responded, “I enjoyed it because it let us see how it was like on the ther side of the desk ... It should be continued.” Panel Discussion Held Recently By Cclestine T. Ashe Puri'ig a series of programs T'kinned by the Women’s Govern- ;iiLnt Association was a Panel Dis- Lu-.sion, the sccond in the series. M.iy 1. 1965 :d 1:30 P.M. Mr. Reuben A. Braxton, Director Student Personnel; Mr. Moses Walker, Instructor, Business Educa tion and Mr. Otha Sydnor, Presi dent of Student Council joined six pancli-ts, Horace Chapman, Mary Herring, Nellie Johnson, Melvin Powell, Geraldine Respass, and Arzie Sutton, in discussing “The Effective Role of Women in a '"h 'nging Society." Several of the male panel members felt that very soon we will have our first woman presi Jei\t. The women students readily agreed to this. The panel expressed themselves by siiying the woman's place is no lorqer in the kitchen. The general agreement among i ^'ut in the v'orld doing more con- the seniors is the fa.’t that holding tni t;ve thinj;s than cooking, 'ome office position and teaching '1 :o!lti:e 'iri'vidi's evon gre it’r opportunity to learn than that which is acquired through the nine- week student-teaching course.

In regular season the team finished with a ! record of 12 wins and only 2 I losses. Coach Bentley believes that , hard work, understanding of per- I sonel, and drill on fundamentals j are the keys to victory. Much of the team's success must go to individuals A1 Richards. James Jones, Ralph Roland, Claude Clark, and Eugene Thompson. ,\l Richards, a junior, compiled an overall record of 13-2. With so many wins under his belt, he was topseeded in the CIAA tour ney. The success of the team has rested heavily upon his shoulders. James Jones ended the season with with 11 wins and 4 losses. He is also a junior and has gained recognition as a fine tennis player. Jones offers great promise for the coming season. Ralph Roland, the only senior on the team, was seeded fourth in the tournament. Ralph is not a graduating senior and coach Bentley hopes that he will have Ralph’s services in the season to come. With an 11-4 record, Claude Clark, a junior has done a great job with the team thus far. At times he appears to be better than his record. There is much to be seen of Clark in the future. Leo Hill, a newcomer to the tennis team and a junior, finished the season with a 10-3 record. He is looking forward to the new season in hopes of bettering his record and the team’s. Eugene Thompson has acted as team captain and despite a knee injury was able to turn in a 3-3 record. He missed the greater part of the season and is looking for ward to bigger and better things in the season he has remaining. CIAA Tourney Singles In the annual CIAA tennis tournament held at Hampton In stitute, Ralph Roland (No. 3 player) advanced to the semi finals before being defeated by Al Poe of NCC. Roland defeated Mealey of Union (6-0; 6-30) and Faucette of A & T (12-10; 6-3). Clark (No. 4) defeated Jackson of Delaware State (6-4; 6-3) in the opening round, but was defeated by Hickman of Union in the quarters. Doubles Al Richards and James Jones were runner-up champs of the CIAA. They lost to Hanley and Lewis of Hampton (6-0; 6-4). They both received trophies for their fine efforts. Clark and Thompson defeated Johnson C. Smith’s No. 3 doubles team to advance to the semi-finals. They lost to Hall and Ratcliff of Hampton in the semi-finals. Coach B'entley states, “Disap pointing single performances from Al Richards, who was top seeded, James Jones, Cleo Hill, and Eu gene Thompson, kept the team from making a much better show ing in total team points. Total team points were 12.’’ TENNIS BOX SCORES Elizabeth City 1 Elizabeth City 7 Elizabeth City 5 Elizabeth City 0 Elizabeth City 7 Hampton 8 Fayetteville 0 Morgan State 2 Hampton 9 Livingstone 0 There is nothing so easy but that i it becomes difficult when you do ' it with reluctance.
