Fruits of Enduring Faith
James A. Felton

This timely book dramatizes the
human issues lying behind the
passage in 1964 of the Civil Rights
Act. It is the story of a courageous
World War II Marine veteran

JC’s, Dorothy Sherrod, Doris Dug-
gins, Geneva Peanort and Joan
Smith came out with the Troys’
“Lovers Concerto." Thomas Evans
tried to bring the audience back to
this dimension with “Good Times."
After all these heart touching
songs, Albert Turner, a great
comedian, brought in a few jokes
to get some laughs. Mr. M. S.
Walker showed us what it is like
to be a drummer. He was sinrply
great. “Stony" as he was called

(Continued from Page 1)
Youth Counselor at the Mount
Vernon Baptist Church.
Dr. Brown is an articulate, in
formed, and masterful orator and
well qualified to speak on the
American Education Week theme,
“Invest in Learning.” She stressed
the necessity of being prepared
in todays’ competitive world, and
emphasized the need for those per
sons investing in learning to ac
quire, absorb and develop the ad
ditional knowledge which will per
mit them to be head and shoulders
over those who are not fortunate
enough or who do not have the op
portunity to secure this additional
and advanced knowledge.
Other participants on the pro
gram were Sandra Trotman, 65
SNEA, who recited ‘‘A Prayer
for Teachers;” Carol Ashe, 65,
Kappa Delta Pi, who introduced
the principal speaker; Mr. Bal
lou who entertained with an organ
selection of “Toccata;” and Mr.
Andrew Hamlett, who explained
the principal purposes of Ameri
can Education Week. Another
outstanding feature of the pro
gram was the performance of the
Elizabeth City State College Choir
in their rendition of the spiritual,
“My Lord What a Morning,” under
the direction of Miss Evelyn A.
Those who were not present at
this assembly program, certainly
missed an invigorating experience.
