Pleads For Help
Students should be proud of
the fact that their dormitories,
classroom buildings, campus
grounds, other buildings, streets
and the surrounding areas are
kept clean and tidy. They do not
have problems with insects and
other pests. They should appre
ciate the people who daily give
them this care.
Yet, the maintenance depart
ment wonders if students appre
ciate them at all. Many of their
actions are not examples of
grown men and women. Even
though pleas are extended to the
residential students to refrain
from placing clothes hangers in
the incinerators along with soft-
drink bottles, may students con
tinue to do this. This only makes
it inconvenient for the other stu
dents who reside in the dormi
tory. Paper is thrown on the
campus grounds and the bright
red and white trash receptacles
Soft drink bottles are left on
window sills, in the halls, or
along the steps and walks sur
rounding the buildings. Students
are provided with the proper
waste receptacles so these acts
of childish carelessness are un
necessary. Responsible adults
take more pride in things of
which they are a part.
Won’t you prove that you
know and put into practice your
responsibilities as a member of
the college family? We enjoy
serving you but won’t you help
us to be of more service? The
time we spend picking up, re^
pairing, and cleaning up after
you could be spent doing other
things in your behalf.

A Black Man^s Prayer
Dear Lord, in the heaven so blue,
I’d like to ask a favor of you.
I know I’m just a little black man;
But please Lord, please understand.
You see, my people are in great need
Of someone to help them, will you please?
They want to ostracize us from the human race
Just because black is the color of our face.
Lord we only want our human rights —
That’s the only reason we often fight.
The white man doesn’t seem to realize
That he’s superior only in his eyes.
When you made the white, you made us too.
(I think I’m right Lord, is this true?)
Why do the black people have to plea
For respect, integrity, and equality.
We, too, are in the front rows in Viet Nam;
We lose eyes, legs, hands, and arms.
Does the enemy shoot the little black man,
Then turn to shake the white one’s hand?
Lord, help us in all our dismay.
I guess that’s all I have to say.
In the future, I hope to see
Love, unity, and equalitj'.
