As one looks on the happy, cheering faces andlistens to the deafening roar of the crowd, one can at the same time feel a most silent inner conflict of tradition vs. the new age. As one listens to the strains of the pep song, "Ilm So Glad I Go to Woodson High, " he realizes that before the echoes stop rebounding off the rafters, this song is to be as extinct as the DODO Bird. You sit and wonder if those cheering, shouting neophytes of this changing world realize that they arewriting the last chapter of a phase of Woodson High School, You wonder if these neophytes know the history that has transpired or had begun in these sacred walls. Do they know of the many educators, the doctors, the businessmen, the good average Americans that got their starts in these surroundings? One wonders if most of these students have been"taken ...

The Community Bulletin Saturday, November 11, 1967 AUGUSTUS TOLTON (1834-1897) le A ~ FIRST NEGRO PRIEST IN IAERICA. On Easter Sunday in the year of 1886, a black man offered Holy Mass on the High .Jltar at St. Peterts Basilica in Rone, Italy. As a rule, only the Pope himlself offers Mass over the tomb of St. Peter in this holy of holies of the Christian world. But this was no regular occasion. Instead, it was the Churchts way of honoring the first full-blooded iAmerican Negro ever to be ordained for the priesthood. Augustus Tolton, the priest, was from Quincy, Illinois and the road to Rome had not been easy, Toltonts intelligence and piety quickly received the attention of the priests and bishops at St. Donifacots parish. They encouraged hin in his studies and when he was sure of his true vocation, helped him to secure admission to the College of Propaganda (Do Propaganda Fide) at Rone in 1880. Brilliantly mastering the language and theological requirements, Augustus Tolton was ord...

EDI TOR I P. 5 The Conrmnity Bulletin Saturday, November 11, 1967 AL P L A Y BELIEVED! With the end of football season, nothing can begained from an article like this, except TRUTH. Elementary, seventh and eighth grad. football games are officiated by school students who are taking a course to learn how to officiate. As all students who are taking courses, they make mis4 takes. Some have said that the mistakes are intentional This we cannot say with finality. Whether elementary, seventh, eighth grade or higher; students, parents, and fans take these games seriously. In fact, there is such a thing as city champions in these game contests, which is an indication of how serious Abilcnians take the games. During these games, pride of self and school is at stake. When these students make mistakes, intentionally or unintentionally, their mistakes hurt the chances of the players in their contest, It seems a feasible and good idea to let the actions of the boy officials be subject to the ac...

Born on November 9, in Ellicott, Maryland, Benjamin Danncker was a self-taught mathematician and astronormr. While still a youth, he made a wooden clock which kept accurate time until he died. This clock is believed to be the first clock wholly Lmado in America. Bannokerts style of life was unusual. By night he could be found wrapped in a cloak, studying the stars until dawn; by day he slept or worked on mathematical problems and received the curious, who came from near and far to see this strange genius. anneker was aware of slavery and its evils. In 1791, he wrote his famous letter to Thorns Jefferson in which he declared that if Jefferson's reputed liberalism were true, "I apprehend you ...

The Community Bulletin Saturday, November 25, 1967 THOMAS PAUL tiPTNlTD Tr DnAPToT Cr nDrA lTTrT'tl1l "His understanding was vigorous, his personal appear ance interesting, and his elocution was grateful." He could spellbind thousands for hours, and when he left them, if they did not have an organized church, they organized one. This was the summation of the life of THOMiS PAUL, a Baptist minister who began the movement of independent Baptist churches in the United States, Although there are records of small Baptist congregations among Negroes being organized as early as 1776 in Virginia, the movement toward separate denominations did not really get under way until the first decade of the 19th century. Until that time, free Negroes had worshipped alongside whites; however, the conservative reaction following the American Revolution and the increased migration of free Negroes to the North made attendance at white churches an uneasy affair. Word of his oratorical ability and organizin...

P? 5 The Corlmmnity Bulletin Saturday, November 25, 1967 d<//r/a X ... ---- UNITED FUND A COMMUNITY FUND RAISING PROJECT (United Fund - a Community Service Project???????????) The United Fund has col4 lected money from all Abilene citizens for a nunber of years. Its claim is that the Fund helps all people. There are agencies that receive UF money that help persons without regards to race, religion, and, etc. On the other hand, Abilene United Fund supports a Dayi Nursery that does not meet the requirements to be licensed by the state of Texas, I wonder should the UF support a nursery just enough for one to say that the UF helps all; or,--- should it support the nursery to the extent that it meets the minirmum requirements of the state. We all know that in the LONG history of Abilenets Boys Ranch, not a Negro boy has attended. We do have a few boys that could be helped there. Contrary to the belief of many,this writer does not believe that all Negro boys in trouble should be sent t...

The Community Bulletin Saturday, December 2, 1967 /2re jy-SCW ED6WARD M. BA;NNISTER (1828-1901) -- -- ILANDSCA'PE PAINTER One day in 1867 EDWARD M. BANNISTER became enraged by a New York Herald article which flatly declared that the "Negroes seemed to have an appreciation of Art while being manifestly unable to produce it." He had a right to be angry, for he had been sketching since he was ten - years old, had taken private instruction from Dr. William Runner, an able teacher of Art Anatomy in Boston and had studied ar t t Lowell Institute in Boston where he was ostracized by white artists. Life had not been easy for Bannister. Although he had a small reputation in Boston, he moved to Rhode Island in 1870. Within six years his painting gained for him an entry in the Centennial Exhibition held in Philadelphia in 1876. His painting "Under the Oaks" took the Gold Medal. A revolt of the other entrants occurred when the judges wanted to "reconsider" the Gold Modal award after discovering...
