Over 10,000 gridiron fans jammed Greensboro’s Memorial Stadium, and braved chilly, rainy weather to see the two teams clash in the annual Tur key Day Carolina Classic. The win by the Eagles left them CIAA conference leaders with a 7-1 record. It also gave Herman Riddick his second CIAA championship in a three- year span. The Eagles won the title in 1963 when they went undefeated with a 6-0-3 record. The Aggies, going into the game, were in second place with an identical conference record of 5-1 but with an overall re cord of 7-2. In winning this year’s classic the Eagles also gained perma nent possession of the coveted Bull-Eagles Trophy, a three- foot trophy established jointly by the two state institutions in 1960 to promote good sports manship between the schools. NCC had two legs on the prize prior to this year’s clash. A. and T. won its only leg last year. Senior halfbi-ck Robert Evans from Winston-Salem, scored the games only score touchdown on a 29-yard pass from end-quart er-back Aaroif Martin in the first quarter, giving the Eagles a slender lead which proved sufficient to earn them the CIAA title.

Ken nedy, thirty-fifth President of the United States, Monday, No vember 25, in memorial services in the college’s R. L. McDougald Gymnasium. The program, which began at 10 a.m., included a prelude and postlude by the college’s band; music by the college choir; an invocation by the Rev. Melvin C. Swann, pastor of St. Joseph’s A. M. E. Church, Durham; re marks by Fulton D. Hayes, vice president of the Student Govern ment Association; reading of a poem, “O Captain, My Captain,” by Dr. J. Neal Hughley, college minister; and a benediction by the Rev. Henry Elkins. NCC President Samuel P. Massie, who presided, delivered the principal remarks, a tribute to the memory of the late Presi dent. He looked upon the death of the President as a loss in far-reaching areas. “The nation has lost a great leader. The world has lost an outstanding statesman and peacemaker. Education has lost a devoted servant. And the Ne- Former U. S. Ambassador Urges Students' Contribution To World Dr. John H. Morrow, former ambassador to the Republic of Guinea, now director of the U. S. foreign service officers’ training program, speaking here Nov. 15, urged North Carolina College students to attempt to make a contribution to Western willingness to understand and assist the underprivileged of the world. Morrow, who headed the NCC Department of Romance Lan guages from 1956-59, leaving to accept the diplomatic post, addressed the college’s fortam assembly on the subject, “The Time is Now.” Speaking of career opportu nities in various federal agen cies and the State Department, he congratulated students upon their being in college preparing themselves to make contribu tions to the American scene and to the world. “Your parents have realized ^—and don’t you ever forget this —that for each generation there are more and more doors open,” he said. “The wiser among us have made the important discovery,” he continued, “that college is not a dull waiting room, where students passively mark tinie until the moment arrives to file out into a few handpicked pro fessions.” Although students are reap ing the benefits of a reassess ment of education in the United States, spurred on several years ago by Russia’s launching of Sputniks, no crash program has been devised. Morrow said, which can eliminate the impor tance of the mastery of details (See Ex-Prof. Urges, page 3) gro people have lost a tried and true friend,” he declared. Dr. Massie expressed best wishes to President Lyndon B. Johnson in the trying days ahead. In commemoration of the life and death of President Ken nedy, the college suspended all social activities for the week end, cancelling a student-spon sored variety program and an intra-squad basketball game. During the day of the memo rial services, all classes and other college activities were sus pended.
