W. T. Host, Political Report
er of the Greensboro Daily Ncwh
wus the principul speaker ut the
Shuw University Honors Duy
exercises held Wednesday, May
5, In the Shaw University Green
leaf Memorial Auditorium where
three Shaw University seniors,
und four Shuw University Juniors
were elected to membership in
the Alpha Omlcrou Honor
Society. Mr. Host lauded the at
tainment of the scholars and
suggested that scholarship Is
important to the development
of good citizens " if for no other
purpose than to make possible
the distinction between what
is old and what is new”.
"The merit of un idea or of a
project, he continued, "does not
lie in the oldness or the new
ness of its conception but rather
in the good that will do for the
progress of humanity”.
Citing Solomon as an author
ity, Mr. Rost urged Shuw stu
dents to recognize the durabil
ity of what may be good "re
gardless of its age”. He insisted
that the so called new order as
espoused by Hitler and his
hordes is nothing more than
repition of the tyranny which
characterize the activities of
Germanic tribes in the early days
of civilization.
Refering to alcoholic intoxi
cant he assured his audience of
young people that drinking is
neither smart nor modern but Is
almost as old as man himself
an in addition is stupid. The
newest things discovered by
alcoholic beverages, he said, "is
that they are poisonous to the
human body."
