    [ELSA] Bill, let's begin our conversation by just asking you briefly
  2. Niezsynchronizowane
    to tell us something about yourself.
  3. Niezsynchronizowane
    [BILL] Well, I'm from West Palm Beach, Florida
  4. Niezsynchronizowane
    I was born there in 1936 and I attended schools there, graduated
  5. Niezsynchronizowane
    in 1953 from Roosevelt High School. In January of 1954, I enlisted
  6. Niezsynchronizowane
    in the United States Air Force, where I was for 3 years, 8 months
  7. Niezsynchronizowane
    and about 26 days. While in the Air Force I was fortunate and unfortunate
  8. Niezsynchronizowane
    enough to spend two years in Japan and also in Korea, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa.
  9. Niezsynchronizowane
    After discharge from the Air Force I attended school, I matriculated
  10. Niezsynchronizowane
    at Florida A & M University in October 1957. Presently I'm majoring in
  11. Niezsynchronizowane
    Business Administration with a minor in Political Science and I am also
  12. Niezsynchronizowane
    President-Elect of the student body; I take office in September.
  13. Niezsynchronizowane
    [Elsa] What do you propose to do when you're finished with your university?
  14. Niezsynchronizowane
    Are you going to be teaching? or uh?
  15. Niezsynchronizowane
    [Bill] Well, no, I'm majoring in Business Administration in an effort not to teach.
  16. Niezsynchronizowane
    In the South, for the Negro who attends college, if he wants employment in the South
  17. Niezsynchronizowane
    most of the time he must devote to the teaching profession and I don't particulary
  18. Niezsynchronizowane
    want to teach. I feel that I can help the teaching profession by staying away
