Black Power expresses only part
of what motivated them.
They wanted more power-stu-
dent power-in the operation and
disciplinary system of t h e i r
school, a predominantly Negro co-
educational institution that long
has been one of the most promi-
nent Negro colleges.
They urged Dr. James M. Na-
brit, Jr., the university president,
to resign.
But the prime desire of these
stu'dents is what they call black
awareness or "black conscious-
ness."
They're developing a new pride
in being Negroes. They hunger for
knowledge about Negro history
and Negro culture. They identify
deeply with Africa and with their
ancestoral roots there.
And they want their university
to help them establish this new
self-awareness.
"We think this university should
prepare us to be leaders in the
black community," says Joseph
Middlebrooks, president of the en-
gineering and architectural stu-
dents association.

By GERG ZIEREN
The Engineering English Department is trying
to erase the all-too-often used image of an
engineer as the embodiment of a cultural void.
Beginning next fall, freshmen will embark on
a two-year English sequence (12 hours instead
of the five currently required) which will take
them through the Ellysian Fields to Joyce's Ire-
land to hopefully discourage common literary
college snickering of the slide-rule steward.
The Great Books Course,-contrary to popular
belief, will not include Modern Introduction to
Calculus, Fuller's Quantum Mechanics or the
CRC Handbook of Physics and Chemistry.
Instead, students wil study works by Homer,

American and European literature courses,
"American Art," courses in modern fiction, poetry
and drama, "The Cinema," and, "Literature and
Art."
Shafter says class size will be limited to 15
or 20 persons, "small enough so instructors can
find out the abilities and interests of particular
students."
The courses will be inter-disciplinary and
guest lecturers from other University depart-
ments will be invited. It will be a "true atempt"
to fill the schisms between the literary and
engineering schools.
Seniors will be required to write a thesis, but
the thesis may be in technical areas.
