Excellence With Caring


A native of Apalachicola, Florida, a
scientist, a scholar, and an ad-
ministrator, Dr. Frederick S. Hum-
phries, is the eighth President of his
Alma Mater.
The FAMU graduate, who taught
chemistry before becoming director of
the campus involvement in the thir-
teen colleges program, has always
been concerned with the progress of
minority students. This concern was
carried over into his presidency at


Tennessee State where he fought for
and maintained the integrity of a
predominantly African American in-
stitution of higher education. A part
of the FAMU president's concern is
expressed in the theme of the 1986
Rattler "Excellence with Caring."
Dr. Humphries believes, "We must
be sensitive to the problems of
achieving education. We must be
rock-ribbed and hardnosed but with
sensitivity." He continues, "We will


pursue excellence in every aspect of
university life. The standards we set
will surpass those determined by
others because the force of our com-
mitment, while tempered with com-
passion, will demand excellence in
preparation in effort, and in results. I
will fight to my last moment for your
right to fulfil your potential, but I in-
sist on the best that can be achieved
and will not settle for less."

SA Reflection

: of Excellence

T he Florida A&M University
Marching Band became truly
"world class" when it was awarded
Sousa Foundation's "Sudler
Trophy for 1985." Presentation of the
trophy on Saturday, October 26, during
half-time of the homecoming football game
which made FAMU the fourth collegiate
band in the nation to receive the trophy.
The only historically black, or African
American college, FAMU joins the Univer-
sity of Michigan, the University of Illinois,
and the Ohio State University marching
bands.
Dr. William P. Foster, director of the
Florida AM& University band, received the
trophy from the donor, Louis Sudler, a
Chicago businessman and patron of the
arts.
The Sudler Trophy is awarded annually
to a "college or university marching band
which has demonstrated the highest of
0 musical standards and innovative
marching routines and ideas, and which
has made important contributions to the
advancement of the performance standards
of college marching bands over a period of
Several years.
The Sudler Intercollegiate Marching
Band Trophy is one of a series of awards
developed by Louis Sudler and ad-
1 ministered by the John Philip Sousa Foun-
f1 dation to recognize and encourage ex-
cellence in the general areas and levels of
band activities. The selection is made in
S accordance with the results of a ballot
mailed to college marching band directors
throughout the United States each year.
The motto of the Florida A&M Universi-
ty Band proclaims: "Highest quality of
character, achievement in academics, at-
S tainment in leadership, dedication to ser-
vice, perfection of musicianship, and preci-
sion in marching." This philosophy
permeates and guides the thoughts and ac-
tions of the director, staff, and students of
the band. Dr. William P. Foster has been
director of the internationally famous
FAMU Marching Band for 40 years and
has created more than 200 halftime
pageants. The band has appeared in three
films, three commercials, numerous
magazines and newspaper articles, "60
Minutes," "20/20," PM Magazine telecast
s and 34 national television performances,
including the Super Bowl, and on all net-
works to over three billion people. The na-
tionally acclaimed "Marching 100" is
credited with revolutionizing marching
band techniques, maneuvers and relevant
concert formats of band pageantry, in-
cluding over 32 innovations.
The Florida A&M University Marching
Band is proud to receive the Sudler Trophy
which recognizes the close historical rela-
tionship and contribution of collegiate
.: marching bands to the American way of
life.

20-year-old native of Jacksonville,
the new "Miss FAMU" is a senior
pharmacy major, who is interested
in specializing in obstetrics and gynecology.
She is Sherri Yvette James, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Shaylor L. James of
Tallahassee.
When asked why she attended FAMU, she
said that her father, a FAMU graduate, had
a lot to do with it. She added, "Moreover,
the School of Pharmacy really impressed
me."
According to James, FAMU is an institu-
tion with which many blacks, or African-
American people, can identify. She feels that


FAMU projects a positive attitude to
African American and other minorities.
Active in many campus organizations,
Miss James' affiliations include: the Student
American Pharmaceutical Association, the
Student Government Association, the White
and Gold Honor Society, Alpha Kappa Mu
Honor Society and president-elect (1985-86)
of Beta Alpha Chapter of Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, Inc.
She has done cardiovascular research in
the School of Pharmacy. She has also been a
recipient of the Presidential Scholarship
Award (based on her GPA) the past three
years and has the leadership award for two
years.


"The two people who inspired me most
are my mother and Dr. Maurice Holder,"
said James, she added, "My mother inspired
me because she is my mother; and Dr.
Holder inspired me because he stays on me,
plus he's a friend as well as a teacher."
In her spare time, James likes to sing and
play the violin; she would also like to learn
about automobiles and how to swim.
"Studying pharmacy is a lot of hard work
and I can't believe I have come this far," said
James. She admits, however that she will
have to go much farther to become an
obstetrician or gynecologist.

Another Day...








THURSDAY, JANUARY 30,1986

I awake to the sound of the screeching alarm clock at 6:30 a.m. I hit the snooze button and am jolted out of a dreamy sleep
again by the alarm nine minutes later. This ritual continues for the next thirty minutes, when I finally realize the reason for
the alarm going off so early in the first place so that I can have enough time to eat breakfast before my 8:35 class. I plug in
my curling iron, take off my clothes and go into the bathroom to take a shower and brush my teeth. While dressing, and
combing my hair, I listen to Joe Bullard on the number one radio station in Tallahassee. Taking a break from the hair, I look
in the refrigerator to see what I want for breakfast and put the water on for my usual morning cup of tea. Nothing really looks
too interesting and I realize that I don't have a lot of time to cook anyway, so I throw a piece of bread with cheese on it into
the broiler. Just in time to hear Sade sing about the "Sweetest Taboo," I go back into my bedroom to put my makeup on so I
can finish my hair while I eat. Since this is Thursday and I have the most classes, will see more people and will be on campus
longer, I have to be sure I look good and get compliments on what I'm wearing. After I'm satisfied with how I look and have
eaten my toasted cheese, I sip the cup of tea while reading the horoscope, comics and Ann Landers in today's Democrat. I
look at my watch, and see that it's time to go to class. I figured out a short cut yesterday; my usual twenty minute walk should
only take fifteen minutes today.
My first class has only about ten people in it so I can't go to sleep. I'm glad I did my homework, that way the professor
won't try to embarrass me, besides, the best way to make the time pass quickly is to be able to participate when he goes over
the homework problems. While trying to listen to the lecture, my mind wanders to planning my schedule for the rest of the
day. First thing, I think I should get my homework for that class out of the way; I know I have an interview at 1:00 I'll
think of something to do before then. Coming back to the present, I smile at one of the professor's corny jokes to hide the
resentment I feel for all of the homework he just piled on. After class, I go to the library to do my homework for my 2:20 class.
When I finish, it's 11:00, still too early to go up on the set, so I walk over to the SBI building to see who's over there. I stand in
front of the building (Set West) talking to different people and flirting, whenever appropriate. As the crowd starts to thin out
after awhile, I think of all the professors I need to talk to about one thing or another. At 12:30 I head over to the set where
maximum people are by this time. I see several friends by the time I reach the cafeteria, and stop to talk to every one. There's
this girl who likes to hug me everytime she sees me, which gets on my nerves, then there's this guy who always likes to hug me
whenever he sees me, too; but he has the body of life, so I really don't mind him.
In the Placement Office, I sit and crack jokes with the other students waiting to be interviewed. For the most part, they
seem pretty nervous. I'm not, because I'm not in the least interested in the company I'm interviewing with I just got on the
schedule because it was empty and one of my teachers asked me to. I have a few minutes before class after leaving the Place-
ment Office, so I stop in the bookstore to get some pretzels and something to drink. Once in class, I find an empty seat near
the front of the room and catch up on the latest gossip before the professor (who is always late) comes in. After class, I hang
around the building until I see someone I can get to give me a ride home since I don't feel like walking. The ride ends up being
with this guy who likes me, and who I'm not interested in, but am nice to anyway just because I don't want an unnecessary
enemy.
I make excuses for not inviting him in and he pulls off as I turn on "She-Ra, Princess of Power" (One of my favorite car-
toons). The rest of my afternoon is spent watching cartoons, "Dallas," "Batman" and "Saturday Night" reruns. At about
8:00, I'm hungry, and decide to order a Priazzo from Pizza Hut; but just before I dial the number, a friend of mine comes over
and I talk him into taking me somewhere to eat. After the "Cosby Show" goes off, we go to Captain D's for shrimp and then
to Jax for a six pack and bring it all back to my house. After eating, while my friend is watching TV, I decide to impress him
with my studiousness and start reading a chapter in my African American History book (the first time I've opened the book
all semester). I put that down soon enough, and my friend and I talk about all kinds of things. I get a few phone calls and he
leaves about 11:00 while I'm in the middle of one. I get off the phone, wash my face, take a shower and get in bed. This time, I
set my alarm for 7:00 a.m. so I can have plenty of time to fix myself breakfast before I go to my 9:00 class.











































ZZZ ... Just a few more minutes, then I
will get up and study.

She Walks in Beauty


She walks in beauty like the night
of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.


One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face -
Where thoughts serenely sweet
express
How pure, how dear their
dwelling-place.


And on that cheek, and o'er that
brow,
so soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that
glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.
Lord Byron
