Speaking during Rider Col lege's summer commencement, Dr. Proctor said that colleges have the thoughtful and honest people required to make the distinction between being re sponsive and frantic and being innovative and reckless. Dr. Proctor, who was awarded an honorary doctor of humane letters degree during the commencement exercises, said higher education was caught by the new social wave "doing business as usual ...apathetic and conformist." He said the answers to to day's questions "are not found by asking 'what did we do last year?' like some deans run a college. The answers are found by people who are courageous enough to recog nize that something new is in the wind and who are willing to shake free from rigid and frozen postures." $1.4 Million Bldg. Unveiled At A&T Univ. GREENSBORO - When the new semester gets under way .at A&T State University September 21, the principle new addition to be unveiled on the campus will be the ultra modern Crosby Com munications Center, completed this summer at a cost of more than $1.4 million. According to Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy, A&T President, the new facility represents a major step in strengthening the Uni versity's offerings in the humanities. "This new building should facilitate our developing more balance between education, science, social science and the humanities," said Dowdy. An important feature of the building is the fully equipped Little Theatre, with a New York stage and an auditorium to accomodate 371 persona. The auditorium is con nected to the section housing the classrooms and laboratories by an enclosed sky-lit passage way, which also doubles as a student lounge. The facility's 18 classrooms are expected to be used pri marily for instruction in Eng lish, speech, drama, reading and foreign languages. and gave them breakfast. The idea became a regular thing with Sister Wyatt and so on each Thursday morning the Chapel Hill angle of mercy is seen having prayer and song service along • with breakfast for the Pettigrew Street group. The meetings have meant a lot to these seemingly forgotten people. Many of them have tried to get jobs, clean them selves up and others are seek ing employment. (Purefoy Photo) While urging the new role for colleges, Dr. Proctor said there are benefits in represen tative democracy, in the basic freedoms and in the traditions of Judaism and,. Christianity that would have to be created all over again if they should be destroyed. "Let us avoid the nonsense of advocating that everything before Woodstock is bad and worthless," he said. Dr. Proctor, who now serves as professor of education in the Rutgers University Grad uate School of Education, also is a former Peace Corps and National Council of Churches administrator. He served as president of Virginia Union University from 1955 to 1960 and as president of North Carolina A&T State University from 1960 to 1965. He's the author of a 1966 book titled "The Young Negro in Ameri ca 1960-1980." If „ W M mm Br «Bu '' MK& DR. DATTA-GUPTA SCS Professor To Present Research Data ORANGEBURG, S.

RALEIGH How long can a person here in the United States expect to live? Probably 20 years longer than his grand father did, notes Isabelle Buck ley, extension specialist in aging, North Carolina State University. For life expectancy in this country has increased more than 20 years since 1900. In fact, a male is now granted an average life span of 75 years; a female a term of 80 years. The future looks even brighter. "The likeliest esti mate is that humans will live about a 100 years," Miss Buck ley notes. And there will be cases here and there of persons living to the ripe old ages of 120, 130 and even 150. Life insurance companies are especially interested in these trends, notes the specia list. And they conduct some research of their own. ■ graduated its first officers in • May 1970 and is the first naval L unit at a predominantly black I college.

In previous times there are reasons why it was nos used and reasons why it is being used so frequently today. When I was just a young ster, I heard my parents and other adults discussing un believable things that were tak ing place here and there. Later, I learned to read so I read about these unbelievable acts. These stories I had heard discussed and the recent ones that I have read were about man and how man treated man. Man would take a man and smear tar over him. To spread tar, it has to be hot or at least warm enough to spread, somehow feathers were used. It was known term wise as to "tar and feather a man". In many cases fire was used, meaning the man tared and feathered would burn to death since tar minus feathers was very inflammable. These acts or deeds were seeds being sown. When seeds are planted or sown, one day is or will be harvest day. It just might be a long wait but that day will surely come. The sower or sowers who sow the seeds might not be the ones to reap them, the seeds are up and ready to be ga thered by someone. I am referring to how the white man treated the black man and the red man must not be excluded from the Iron band of the white man.

This crop someday will need harvesting. Will they have to harvest their own also or the generations to follow? To the black man and the red man, two wrongs do not make a right. It only adds up to revenge and vengeance be longs to God. God and God alone can and will bring good from evil. To try and achieve good any other way is only bad and evil in reverse. Do not try and rush God. Time means nothing to Him. To Him, a day is a thousand years and a thousand years is but a day. We cannot hurry God so we will and we must wait on Him. The reverse is now taking place. Let us not think how much we have done. Give God all the credit and praise. We are only God's tools. The took of a machinist say not, it is I who am responsible for the tearing down and the building of a piece of ma chinery. When God gets ready and not until then, He moves in. I can see all kinds of signs, God is moving in and there isn't anybody who can do anything about it. Since the reverse, none of the evils done now match or equal the evils that were done all through the years except that they will be classified as evils against us. All the evils done by the white man which were many, were never classi fied by individuals, courts, city, state or our national government as violence. Today the evils done bare the label of violence. The seal of violence la sin and sin is death through violence.
