Fine Record

With the school integration problem raging throughtout the southern purtion of the nation, some of the violonce flaring less than 100 miles from the SIU campus, Southern can be proud of the record here.
Negro students at Southern are accepted not only as equals on the athletic field and in the classroom, but in almost all other activities as well. This is a record worthy of note.
In many schools, Negro athletes are common, along with outstanding students in the classroom, but, in very few do Negroes compete for recognition in the extracurricular realm.
At SIU many of the top positions on such things as the Student Council, Homecoming, and Spring Festival committees, class officers, etc., are held and excuted well by Negro students.
However it is necessary to realize that this wholesale integration must be achieved after many of the students arrive on compus. Many of them are raised in environments where segregation is common. The biases and prejudices aquired through the many years are to be rid of, but constant association with the objects of the prejudices usually breaks down the imaginary wall.
