Creation Date



The Spectrum Club is a newly organized discussion group which seeks to give students an opportunity to discuss vital issues intelligently. In a short talk an undergraduate speaker gives his basic understanding of the topic. Often his speech is followed by a commentary from an expert versed in the subject under discussion. An extensive question period follows in which the speakers enlarge upon their views. "The Effect of Segregation on the Negro" was the first program of The Spectrum Club. John Thompson, Class of 1964, was the student spokesman. The professional outlook on the subject was presented by Mr. Andrew Bell, Class of 1955, of the Urban League. The main thesis of Thompson's talk was that segregation was national but that the South assumed a more rigid, defined position than the North. Mr. Bell then emphasized the affect segregation has on us in today's world.
