SHERMAN D. SCRUGGS, MO. U., DELIVERS ANNUAL ADDRESS TO GRADE, HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE STUDENTS 'THE MAN AT HOME IN THE STREETS' "Every experience that you shall live through on this campus shall imbue you with a sen·se of the eternal moral values which are unchanged by time and occasion. It is be– lieved that with knowledge and these values as guides in your everyday affairs you may have the power and free– dom to be what the Creator has designed you to become, and to do a service that shall enrich not yourself alone, but the family, the community, the state, the nation, the new world!• College Success Steps to success in college life which Dr. Scruggs listed for daily check were: (1) Be ambitious to learn-want to know. (2) Keep close to your advosers and learn from them how to learn. (3) Drive yourself hard enough to keep at learning. (4) Keep well in body, open in mind and cheer– ful in spirit. (5) Balance your day. Budget your time for work and for fun. (6) Strive to follow correct forms of be– havior in living in residence halls, at meals in cafeteria, in participation in social activities, and in attendance at cul– tural programs. These are experiences which teach you to live acceptably among your fellows in the new world. (7) Keep in mind that doing everything you do in the way it should be done is the way the world wants it done." "Work intelligently and cooperatively in democratic group activities with others to establish and maintain the welfare and security for any part of society to the level of that enjoyed by the majority.

It is hard to instill pride in a coun– try that Jim Crows a brown skin right and left. But could not pride in that .brown-skin itself be instilled? There is pride in the history of the Negro people from Africa to America, from the Kings of Dahomey to Joe Louis, from Ebboue in this war in Africa to Dorie Miller in this war at Pearl Harbor. There is pride in Crispus Attucks and Fred– erick Douglass and Paul Lawrence Dunbar and W. E. B. DuBois and Carver and Marian Anderson and Duke Elling– ton and Mrs. Bethune and Lena Horne. Perhaps if this pride were instilled in the young men who now don't care what they say in a bus full of people, they would choose the more decent words in our language for their conversations in public, rather than their current mother-fouling vocabulary. Maybe. I only suggest these things. I do not know. Certainly we have failed to give them something they need to make their lives whole. So we had better try to learn to know why, how come, and what to do about them. They are your mother-foulers and mine.
