P.3 The Community Bulletin Saturday, February 3, 1968 SCIENCE AIND INDUSTRY In science and, to a lesser extent, in industrial invention, Negroes have distinguished themselves. In 1770, the remarkable BENJAiIiIN BANNEI R of Maryland made the first Arerican clock which struck off t h e hours. HENRY T. BLAIR, also of Maryland, became the first Negro to receive a patent when his cornharvester was registered in 1835. NORDERT RILLIEUXIS work on evaporation and the liquid reduction process, in the opinion of some, has been "the greatest in thehistory of Aml-erican chemical engineering." The Negro has been active in the field of medical science for a long time. As early as 1667 one LUCAS SANTO0lE of New York was trained in medicine in Holland and practiced under the Dutch and British. A slave by the name of 01NEISSIMUS provided Americans - with an effective antidote for smallpox in 1721.

P. 5 a .} y8 /y ~ fThe Cormunity Bulletin / o rJ Saturday, Fcbruary 17, 1968 THE CHURCH S WAR ON POVERTY by REV. If, LLIE HiYS (Scries IV, Part I) Poverty and lack of education are two sides of the sale coin. Poverty liUits Cducational opportunity and, in rany instances, drains off the m1orale anld lotiv iin that are essential to learning. Lack of education perpetuates poverty by lil:^.-'nL opportunities for employment. But this is not all. The neojative cducti: ;na!l experiences of rany children and young people in poverty areas destroy their selfrespect, their expectations and hopes for the future, Unless they are a.ble to rostore faith in themselves, they are likely to become not onlyJ unerployable but .also )erianently handicapped as persons. ducation is, therefore, a crucial p.-.rt of the nation s attack on poverty, ilm-ost very aspect of the government anti-poverty effort has some educational features, nd many programs deal directly with improving and expending public educatio...
