Prescod, Jeffrey Study
Changing Negro Views

-- vt an=l . FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1962

"It is must easier for the South-
ern Negro student to recognize
the faults of society than, we as
Northern students," Martha Pres-
cod, '65, a representative to Stu-
dent's Non-violent Coordinating
Committee said yesterday.
Speaking to the President's
Council of Panhellenic Association
with Sharon Jeffrey, member of
Student Government Council, she
Payne Views
Of Washtenaw
Thomas P. Payne, Democratic
candidate for Congress from the
second district, observed that his
opponent, George Meader (R-Ann
Arbor) has consistently voted
against any efforts to expand the
economy to full employment.
"Three programs which passed
Congress in spite of my opponent's
'no' vote are bringing more jobs
and more money to this district,"
Payne noted.
He said that new programs un-
der the Area Redevelopment now
being studied will bring help to
the people and to the economy of
Monroe County and this district.
If elected to Congress, Payne
explained that he would work for
the passage of more legislation
which would make certain areas
such as Washtenaw County, that
are adjacent to redevelopment
areas, eliggible for benefits from
the Public Works Acceleration Act.
"Nine thousand people in Mon-,
roe cross the county boundary to
go to work. Public works projects
in Monroe and adjoining counties
would mean more jobs for the
whole district," he commented.
Payne said that unemployed peo-
ple in three of the four counties in
his district are eligible for re-
training under the Manpower De-
velopment and Training Act.

is in an ambiguous position in his
"He is taught the worth of the
individual and the tenents of de-
mocracy from such institutions as
his church and school. Yet around
him he sees flagrant violations of
these ideas," she observed.
Ignores Problems
The North tends to ignore these
problems and "we can overlook
that there are all Negro and all
white sororities, and that there
is a very low percentage of Negro
students at the University."
In 1960 four students in Green-
ville, N.C., went into a lunch
counter to eat and met violent op-
position. "From this point on the
sit-ins began, followed by the
Freedom Riders and voter regis-
tration drives, Miss Prescod ex-
"Negroes are actively trying to
change the paradox that they face
today, and this has become a
springboard to greater and more
forceful action." ,
Revise Attitude
In order to understand the at-
titude change in Negroes one
must understand the place of the

George Palmer Williams, for 40
years a member of its faculty,
probably had more to do with
shaping the fortunes of the Uni-
versity than any other person.
Appointed in 1841 as the very
first member of the University
faculty, Prof. Williams headed the
department of natural philosophy
and later that of mathematics and
physics. He and a second professor,
Reverend Joseph Whiting, a half
dozen students, and a building saw
the beginning of the Literary Col-
lege with its first class in Septem-
ber, 1841.
He served his university for 40
years and was its virtual head for
more than 10 years prior to the
advent of President Henry P.
Fine Appreciation
The man evidently had a. fine
appreciation for humor, for the
following story is told of him:
One day before class was to be-
gin, Prof. Williams' s t u d en t s
brought a donkey in his upper
story recitation room, haltered and
tied it to the rostrum at the pro-
fessor's desk. Mr. Jolly, the aged
janitor, coming upon the riotous
scene was greatly agitated and
rushed to the professor's house.
Bursting into the study, he
breathlessly blurted, "Professor,
there's a donkey in your class-
The professor's reply: "Only
Old Punky
Fondly revered by students and
alumni, the man was known to
all as "Old Punky."
When he retired in 1875, the
alumni society undertook to raise
$25,000, the income from which
was to provide the professor with
a few added luxuries.
At his death in 1881, this first
endowment fund was established

Through the use of a four-

now possible to build a tire, inflate
it and then test it-as a result cf
a recent breakthrough by faculty
members in the engineering col-
Prof. Samuel K. Clark of the
engineering college, who, under
the sponsorship of five tire com-
panies, directed a three-year re-
search project, believes that better
tire performance and more eco-
nomical procedures of designing
should result.
Before a computer program
could be devised, the engineers
had to develop a means to measure
the elastic properties of .tire ma-
terials. Previously, it had been
considered virtually impossible to
analyze them mathematically.

"For many years the church
preached sermons about how the
'meek-will inherit the earth.' The
Negro lived in society and recon-
ciled himself with the abuses he
found there."
Now this attitude has changed,
and the movement is beginning to
express itself, Miss Prescod said.

Miss Jeffrey noted that the
Ann Arbor tutorial project for
Negroes and whites will create
better understanding.
"By helping students with their
homework and also fostering dis-
cussions on the psychology and
sociology of community problems,
perhaps the goal of an integrated
society can be reached," she

The market for elephants is in-
creasing on the University campus
because of the forthcoming First'
Annual Big Ten Pachyderm Der-

Celebration, Oct. 27-28.
Through arrangements made by
the Homecoming Committee, hous-
ing units and teams from other
campuses are eligible for the com-
petition. Live elephants are avail-
able for $225, and entering units
are free to decorate their elephant
as they wish and to coax and cheer
him (or her) to victory.
So far, six elephants have been
rented by housing units and at
least two teams from other schools
said they will compete.
The Homecoming Committee has
received word from Adams State

College in Alamosa, Colo., and the
University of Illinois, who have
taken up the challenge issued sev-
eral weeks ago by University un-

that two races might be necessary,
one to determine a University
champion, and then a second be-
tween the winner and the ele-

Both races will be run between
the same animals, thereby giving
the University a "slight edge"

The race, of an undetermined
distance, will be run on Ferry
Field on the afternoon of Oct. 27.
The animals are being leased
from an Indiana elephant trainer.
