NEW YORK - The Ancient Egyptian Arabic Orders Nobles Mystic Shrine (Prince Hall Shriners) recently expressed CMitinued concern for black students with a second check for $8,000 to the National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Students (NSSFNS). The two recent grants from the Shriners to NSSFNS total $23,500.
John Edghill, Imperial Potentate of the 81-year old organization of Shriners, said the continued development of young minds is a duty not to be taken lightly.
"When responsible black organizations fail to express concern for higher access education for black students, these organizations cease be responsible. There can
no brighter tomorrow without an investment in the youth of today.”
Ed^ill praised NSSFNS for its 27 years of pioneer service to black students. NSSFNS, which services 40,000 to 50,000 black students yearly, is the largest counseling and referral agency in its field and the only such agency geared specifically for black students.
David B. Kent, Jr., Executive Director of NSSFNS, called on other blapk organizations to follow the Shriners’ example.
"This fall thousands of needy black students around the country will be sedcing

and struggling to find funds for college admissions. Many of them will be the first in their family to go to college. This is important to the survival of all black organizations.”
Working with some 3,000 colleges and 8,o5o high schools throughout the country, NSSFNS counsels black high school students and directs them to colleges most likely to offer admissicms and financial aid. The service is free to all black high school students.
NSSFNS is headquartered at 1776 Broadway, New York, New York 10019.

or I pay to the Internal Revenue Service. A bosom buddy of President Nixon, like Sammy Davis, should pay no more than he actually owes -and no less, either.
It’s part of our job as citizens to pay up on April 15th. But it’s also the responsibility of IRS to see that no citizen is unfairly taxed because of his race, creed, color, politics, or the way he ties his shoes.
However, according to Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.), the Nixon White House has been using IRS files like a "lending library” and may have intervened in behalf of its pals to lighten their tax burden.
Weicker revealed the IRS apparently sent over Sammy Davis Jr.’s files to the White
boys have been using officials like errand boys Was the Nixon White House, in violation of the tax laws, using its influence to get Sammy Davis or other favorites off the tax hook? Was the Nixon White House using the IRS to hound and harass pro-Democrat entertainers?
The public has a right to know. Rev. Graham has denied he ever asked for White House help over his tax problems. It is possible he didn’t know that the White House asked for his files. And the same may be true for Sammy Davis. Maybe Davis
violated by the White House?
On the other hand, suppose Davis did ask the White House to help him out, even though such political meddling may well be in violation of the law. Isn’t it only fair and just for Davis to come forward now, admitting he made a mistake, and tell the American people the real inside story about how the whole matter came about and who was responsible in the White House?
Either way, it’s time for Sammy Davis to speak up.
The IRS is in hot water for the first time with the American people. People
