Housing Needed
For WSSU Students
Winston-Salem State University has
established an Off-Campus Housing Pro
gram to coordinate listings for its students.
Landlords, agencies or families can list
their accommodations — rooms, apart
ments or houses — and students can choose
the type of accommodations that will meet
their needs.
The program stems from a continuing in
crease in requests for campus housing, re
quests that now far exceed the number of
beds available. Pesons interested in listing
available space should contact the Housing
Office at 761-2237 or 761-2239 between 9 a.m.
and 5 p.m. weekdays. There is no listing fee.

Issac Hayes
Makes a Comeback
By Shelia Rucker
This Issac Hayes was not dressed in his
well-known furs or chains speaking at A&T
State University at Merrick Hall, March 4,
at 1:30 p.m. Instead he was clad in blue
jeans, a Columbia Jazz T-shirt, red boots
and a red leather and blue jean jacket.
Hayes, a recording artist, producer and
actor, was speaking to A&T students about
opportunities in the music field. He spoke
about the field of business and how the
students could use this field in areas such as
marketing, sales and accounting.
He emphasized that it is extremely impor
tant that they be knowledgable in different
areas. “No one is going to give you
anything, you must earn it,” he said. He
also stated that the music industry is a very
stressful, glamorous and high-profiled
business, but warned students of using
drugs to help relieve that stress.
Hayes, a native of Memphis, Tennessee,
started as a signed musician who sang
“everything from blues to gospel and rock
n’ roll to jazz.” He was dubbed the “Black
Moses” at a performance in the late 60’s,
which he explained was “not a self-ordained
concept.” For this reason he was hesitant of
the name because he felt it was
sacrilegious. Nevertheless the name stuck
and he believes that black people felt that he
was a voice for the black life-style. Hayes
biggest hits came from the album “Hot But
tered Soul,” which included “Walk On By,”
“I Stand Accused,” “Phoenix” and “One
“My songs have helped put quarreling
lovers back together, helped the Vietnam
Vets and helped some people get through
lonely nights,” stated Hayes.
Hayes who received an Academy Award
for the music score of “Shaft.” has perform
ed in movies such as “Three Tough Guys”
and “Truck Turner.” His latest effort is the
upcoming movie “Counterforce,” in which
he plays a commando team member who is
protecting an Arab leader in exile. He has
written the music score for the action-
adventure movie.
Hayes' advice to students pursuing a
career in the entertainment field is to “have
tenacity" and not to lose sight of their goals.
Poet’s Corner
It attacks not only losers, but winners —
Not only saints, but sinners.
Although you can’t see
How tall it can be,
And though you can't touch.
You sure can wonder how wide and how
It could be real big or small
And terribly bad for us all.
Your mind it could take
Your heart it may break.
Your soul it may enter
Like a cold breeze in winter.
