McMillan Let us not forget... Let us not forget our ancestors being sold as a piece of property and slaving day in and day out on the master's farm, let us not forget. Let us not forget all they came through to bring us where we are today, all the pain, the blood, the sweat and the suf fering, let us not forget Let us not forget the sneaking that they did in order to learn to read to obtain knowledge, and the sneaking they did to escape to a better life, let us not forget. Let us not forget the Civil Rights Movement, the sit-ins, the marches, the protests, the violence and the arrests, let us not forget. By being where you are today, I hope you haven't forgotten.

McMillan We spoke only... We spoke only when we were spo ken to We came only when we were called We were loaded on and off of hand made boats Adorned in chains and balls We were beaten, sold, hosed and abused Starved, separated and falsely accused We were chosen at random to be examples To remind us of who was boss To them it was a necessity, to us it was a loss We were made to watch them ascend the decks That were built beneath a tree And watch the ropes be put about their necks All of this we were made to see They left them hanging in midair to prove to us you see They said "This time it was only two, next time it would be three" But then one day it was all over and we could somewhat do as we pleased Some were afraid to go because they could not write or read It was a long hard struggle for us to get where we are And it was all because of our ances tors who suffered the bruises and the scars Sometimes it appears that we tend to forget all they had to go through To demand a better future for me as well as for you Indebted to them we will always be and our history we will never forget Because in our hearts we know for sure They ain't seen nothing yet!!! Joyce E. McMillan Red Measles: Have you had your shot? By Arnetta Hauser, RN A.H. RAY HEALTH CENTER, WSSU Medically known as Rubeola, this disease has stmck in 16 counties in North Carolina. At least one area has a quarantine on all sporting events and social activities. Thousands of people have been vaccinated because of the outbreaks. Many people are concerned and- rightly so - about the effectiveness of their childhood vaccinations against this disease. According to the immunizations agent for this dis trict, Rick Raynor, no re-vaccina- tions should be given at WSSU unless there is a case of measles at the university. Each student's immu nization record would then be reviewed and those persons who were less than 15 months old when the initial shot was given would be re-vaccinated. Rubeola should also be repeated if the immunization was given prior to 1968, because the vac cine was thought to be weaker then. The onset of measles is gradual, with cold-like symptoms (nasal con gestion, sneezing and hacky cough) appearing first. There is a general feeling of discomfort, in other words, you just feel sick and drowsy with a loss of appetite. The fever rises grad ually at first and may get as high as 102 degrees. The rash which is red- dish-brown in color usually begins behind the ears, on the forehead or cheeks. It then progresses to the legs and arms lasting about five days. The disease can be spread from four days before to five days after the rash appears. The vims can be trans mitted from one person to another either by direct contact or from droplets from the moulh or nose of an infected person. Rubeola poses a danger to preg nant women, because it causes birth defects when it affects the unborn child. This has been just a brief overview of measles. Of course, not everyone who catches the disease will respond to it in a like manner. Any one who suspects measles should see a physician as soon as possible. As you are already aware, the state immunization law, requires that each student submit a completed immunization record. The gravity of the situation is obvious. The health center staff encourages all students to submit a copy of this record to us without delay. HERE'S OME COLLEGE MEMORY MTU HELP YOU FORGET.
