"The Book of Time"

Rainy days,

Gloomy days

Are mingled in Time's pages;

Sunny days,

Happy days,

Have come through distant ages;

Good deeds,

Noble deeds,

Each a page in Time's great book;

Kind thoughts,

Golden thoughts,

The goal to which we look;

By acting them,

Proving the,

It wavers before the sight;

Fearing not,

Daunting not,

The dream is brought to light;

Days and deeds,

Thoughts and acts,

Make up the book of Time;

Acting things,

Doing things,

Help make it line by line.

Zilpah Frisbie, '27.

Work

Let me but to do my work from day to day;

In field or forest, at the desk or loom.

In roaring market-place or tranquil room,

Let me but find it in my heart to say,

When vagrant wishes beckon me astray:

"This is my work; my blessing, not my doom:

Of all who live, I am the one by whom

This work can best be done, in the right way."

Then shall I see it, not too great, nor small.

To suit my spirit and to prove my powers:

Then shall I cheerful greet the laboring hours.

And cheerful turn, when the long shadows fall

At eventide, to play and love and rest

Because I know for me my work is best.

Henrv Van Dyke.

CLASS SONG

Our class today,

It is up and away

At the peep of early morning.

With the staff in hand,

An eager band.

Our hearts as light as air.

The Purple and Grey is leading away

As the earth our feet are scorning,

And off we start with a buoyant heart

And with never a thought of care.

Chorus:

For it is step, step, swinging along,

We keep the time with a marching song,

Left, right, steady and strong.

Our class is leading the way.

ALMA MATER, SYMBOL OF SERVICE

Alma Mater, you've been a friend,

To your our wills we'll ever bend,

Your motto we'll hear unto the end,

For you we'll sever and carry on.

Alma Mater, to thee we'll raise

Our grateful prayers and songs of praise

Remembering in the darkest of our days

To give to mankind the Symbol of Service.

Alma Mater, we adore you

And our duty may we ever do

By making our lives to your memory true,

For you we'll toil forevermore.

The First Book of the Tribe of '25 Called '21

IN the year of our Lord '21 there entered the land of E. C. T. C, to

begin their sojourn there, the tribe of '25. They, the first Freshman

Class, were eleven strong. But they were sore afraid.

Then Herring took the tribe of '25 and led them through the

wilderness. And they came to Thanksgiving, with cheers for the C's-

the C's won. And the tribe of '25 grew in wisdom and in favor with the faculty.

And it came to pass in '22. under McArthur, in the fifth month and the

twentieth day of the month that the tribe of '25 adopted colors, purple and grey,

and a banner.

Moreover, in the same year, Reaves called the tribe together and they fur-

nished a cabin. The inside whereof was gray and rose. And the chairs were

three and the windows five thereof. And the sight thereof was beautiful. And

behold, the tribe of '25 chose that as their meeting place.

And it came to pass afterward that the Queen of May was crowned. So

the tribe of '25 did make merry and feast. They guarded the animal tent at the

merry-making. The sight whereof was great to behold.

And it came to pass in the third year of the sojourn of the tribe of '25 that

Colwell was chosen leader. In the ninth month of the third year of the sojourn

of this tribe the play, "The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife," was given. The

tribe felt well pleased by the laughs they got from the crowd.

And behold! The year "25 approacheth. The journey of the tribe of '25

nears its end. Thus, in the last year of the tribe's journey, with its number

increased to seventeen, the tribe of '25 advances with its face to the front.

In the sixth month of this year the tribe put on another play, "Lady Winder-

mere's Fan," which was quite different from the other one.

They helped put out an annual, THE TECOAN, and behold, when the king says

"do" the tribe of '25 is ready to do.

And it came to pass after four years the tribe, pale and thin from practice

teaching in the land of E. C. T. C, comes forth victorious.

Now, therefore, the tribe of '25 reaches its end and receives its "A.B." in a

cap and gown on the 2nd day of the sixth month, of the year One Thousand

Nine Hundred, Twenty-Five.

Thus ends the trials and tribulations of the tribe of '25. And they are

scattered throughout the earth, to the four corners thereof.

"Father Time."

The Freshman stood on the rail-road track,

The train was coining fast;

The Freshman got off the railroad track,

And let the train go past.

The Senior stood on the railroad track.

The train was coming fast:

The train got off the railroad track,

And let the Senior pass.

At Twilight On Core Sound

'Twas calm; the drowsy sea had rocked itself to sleep,

And the boats, weary of the tossing of the waves

Throughout the day, rested gently on its bosom.

Bathed in the last rays of the sun.

Many tinted rays; blue which changes into pale green.

Then the loveliest of all-glowing lavender;

A filmy, gauzy, delicateness that hovers.

Just a moment then passes on.

The noises of the busy world are absent now,

The engines of the motor boats have long been still,

Shrieking gulls, dipping here and there to snatch a fish.

Have found their meal and flown away.

Silence-silence over the watery distance.

Time for rest and peace has come and nature obeys.

Yet listen closely, one can hear the distant ocean.

Forever tossing in its bed.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT

AS an old man, making preparation to start on his last journey, wills his

cherished possessions to those whom he loves, so we, the College Seniors,

realizing that our days, as students are numbered, wish to bequeath

certain gifts to those we leave behind us.

Our one request is that these, our most honored possessions, be

carefully guarded and that they be passed down to succeeding generations of

E. C. T. C. as gifts from the class of '25.

ITEM I

To our parents and friends, who have made our education possible, we do

bequeath our love and appreciation. May they ever hold first place in our

hearts.

ITEM II

To our Alma Mater we will our lives to carry out its motto-"To Serve."

ITEM III

To the faculty in general we will our unmeasured esteem and gratitude for

every attainment they have helped us reach; moreover, there are certain individual

beqUests.

1. To Mr. Austin, our imagination, so he will be better prepared to make

his pupils, who come after us, visualize unseen objects as they exist.

especially needed.

3. To Miss Hall, a lock and key for her classroom door so the noise of the

girls on the hall will not force her to commit suicide.

5. To Miss Hooper and Mr. Deal, our undying love and gratitude for the

services rendered us in coaching our Senior play.

6. To Mr. Fitzgerald, all the startling information we have furnished the

tion." "All right girls, let's not drag it." "Pardon this personal illustration."

"AND YET, And Yet, and yet, and yet." "If I see any more talking back there

I am going to send you out of this room." "Two plates of bread, girls. Do you

Senior Class Prophecy

SHOULD you ask me where my classmates,

Where my present friends will be

With their memories of college,

With their plans for greater service,

Carrying out their life's great program,

Following higher ideals ever;

In the year of nineteen fifty.

I should answer, I should tell you,

Northward, Southward, Eastward. Westward,

To the four winds of this great earth;

From the lands of icy climates.

To the lands of ceaseless summer;

From the lands of steepest mountains,

To the lands at ocean level.

Over mountains, over valleys,

Over oceans, over rivers,

Are these friends so widely scattered.

If still further you should ask me,

Saying tell us of these classmates;

Tell us where each member now is,

Where by daily life and duties

Life is being made so happy

For the ones with whom she mingles,

Hoping these to guide and strengthen.

I should answer. I should tell you,

In the cornlands of the Northwest,

In the region of the Great Lakes,

Do we find Amanda Tillman;

Teaching, guiding, helping, leading,

Children of these husky farmers,

To form plans for future greatness.

Near her is another classmate,

Cleora Quinn, our domestic member:

With her wisdom, gleaned at college,

Teaching mothers and their daughters

How to use their home-grown products,

In many ways they ne'er had thought of.

Here, too, is Rebecca Colwell,

Who helps them also with their sewing,

Plans their dress for all occasions,

Tells them which are most becoming,

To their special size and makeup.

Page Seventy-Seven






The 1925 Tecoan

We hear her, as we did in college,

Telling some "long lines are better,"

Others, "you are rather taller,

Broken lines are quite the thing."

Still others of our classmates,

Through love for our capital city,

Have found their work among the thousands

Who yearly go to live there.

One, who in her college days

Showed ability for greater things

Than she had heretofore accomplished.

That it seemed success was evident.

So we find her in the senate,

Grace Strassburger, from Pennsylvania,

Representing, to her best ability,

Her people, who with the same confidence

In her that her schnolmates had,

Know that she will never forget

To do the right thing for them.

Bonnie Howard has succeeded,

Since our early days together,

In reaching heights almost unknown,

And has helped to organize

A Department of Education

In the Cabinet of our President.

She is doing many great things,

As the head of this department,

And a member of the cabinet.

To whom our President turns for counsel

Regarding the education of the children

Of our liberty-loving country.

Still another of our classmates,

Melene Congleton, our Secretary,

Reserved, demure and unoffending,

Listening quietly to our chatter

In our precious class meetings,

Is still a Secretary;

But this time to the President

Of our great and grand Republic

Of our own United States.

Some have answered life's great calling,

By helping to relieve the suffering

Of humanity around them.

Page Seventy-Eight






The 1925 Tecoan

Three are in a large hospital

In our sister country, South America,

Doing to their very utmost,

Everything they possibly can do,

To combat diseases common

To the land in which we find them.

Thus we find these members daily

Accomplishing far greater things

Than they ever did in college.

One a doctor, Willie Mae Hedgepeth,

Doing marvelous operations,

Lecturing as she operates

To a group of medical students.

Who are eager in their listening

To the truths of the great docto,

In whom they have the utmost confidence.

Nothing can be more important

To the work of the great physician,

Than a nurse of sterling character,

One with a pure and open countenance,

One that feels her duty keenly.

Feels it of such great importance,

As to call forth her best effort.

Thus, a nurse, we find Millie Everette,

Standing by this doctor always.

Helps her with her operations,

Boosts her when she feels disheartened.

Ready to give her faith and courage.

Helps the weary patients also,

Helps them bear their trials and sufferings

By speaking to them words of kindness.

Yet another thing of moment

In caring for the sick and weary,

For the mind and body sufferer,

Drawn with jjain and burned with fever,

Is the nourishment of their bodies,

Food that makes them live and prosper,

Food that means one-half the battle.

In this place of such importance,

As dietitian, Alya Taylor,

Planning always nourishing foods

To strengthen their weakening bodies,

Page Seventy-Nine






The 1925 Tecoan

To lift ihem out of the depths

Of the bodily sick and despondent,

And bring back to their cheeks the roses.

Your surprise should not be so great

When I tell you of Mrs. Petteway,

For surely every one expected

Great things from our married member,

She has lived up to our fond hopes,

And is now a solemn judge

In the Supreme Court of our country,

Showing kindness to rich and poor.

Playing fair with innocence and guilt.

Dealing justice to all alike.

We have another national figure.

Ivy Phillips, Attorney-General

Of this dear old United Country.

Well do we remember how

In college days she used to argue

With various teachers on current topics.

And in the end her ready wit

Had gained the point for which she sought,

So it seems 'twas quite in evidence.

With her enormous vocabulary.

That her fate should thus be trended.

Ruth Dean is an important character,

Lecturer for the Y. W. C. A.,

For that world-wide organization

That binds Christian girls together.

Broadens their outlook on living.

Giving e'er the best that's in her.

In the upbuilding of our nation.

In the raising of our morals

To a higher and nobler standard.

Another that is surely helping

With the advancement of God's kingdom,

Is Trixie Jenkins, in far China,

Working as a missionary.

Working for the missions gladly.

Daily she is found and sought out

By some struggling idol worshipper.

To be told about the Great God

That gives pleasure to his followers.

Saying if such things are true

He would give all he possesses

For this peace of mind and spirit.

Way out in the Pacific Ocean.

On the Islands of the Philippines,

Teaching mathematics to the natives,

Annie Blanche Herring is holding sway.

Through her absolute faith and courage

In the people and their customs.

She is attaining great success;

The results she gets are pleasing.

Some of the leaders of one subject,

Others leaders of some other.

All are leaders in their own line.

Pearl Wright's line is education;

So we find her as the chairman

of the National Education Association,

Organizing, standardizing,

All the schools throughout our land.

So the poor have equal chances

With the rich in this free country,

In this land of opportunity.

Where all race and class distinction

Is fast being done away with.

Marie Lowry showed a fondness,

Back in Teachers' College days.

For the books in our library.

Thus we see this love has carried

With her through the following years,

Until now she is librarian

In our big Congressional library.

Here she has become acquainted

With the books of many nations.

Making them her choicest friends.

When alone she is not lonesome.

For in them she finds companions.

Still one other of our classmates

Is going forward to success

In the field of General Science.

Tearing down old superstitions,

Putting in their places doctrines

Based on facts, found out bv research.

Millie Roebuck is now teaching

Science in her Alma Mater.

To the boys and the girls

Of her loved State North Carolina.

Thus I've told vou of my classmates

Who since leaving Teachers' College

Page Eighty-One






The 1925 Tecoan

In the year nineteen twenty-five,

Have succeeded in their purpose

Of upholding their class motto,

"Service above Self," which always

Has been our chief and highest ambition.

Some have followed early training.

That of teaching hungry intellects.

Yet, to all, their former knowledge,

(Be they doctor, lawyer, teacher),

Is of most inestimable value.

For by it they are better able

To understand their own companions.

And the ones with whom they mingle

Are made just a little better

Through their close and friendly contact.

So, my classmates, let me wish you

Godspeed in your future attempts,

That you may attain yet greater

Heights than you have thus far reached.

In this year of nineteen fifty.

And remember always, ever.

That the teachers at our college

Watch us climbing, higher, higher.

And their hearts grow glad within them,

And we owe to them a great deal

For thus helping in the shaping

Of our lives and future progress.

Thus I wish to send a greeting

To my classmates where they're scattered

In the regions of the mountains.

In the frozen icy climates,

In the regions of the sun-kissed.

In the many lands of progress.

Classmates whose vocabularies

Contain not the words "to fail,"

Striving ever upward, onward,

With their faces toward the future.

Never faltering, never failing.

Backward going, never, never,

In the year of nineteen fifty.

Mary E. Outland,

Prophet.

Class History '25

EVER since the Fall of 1923 when 280 "C's" entered the halls of East

Carolina Teachers College, the class of 1925 has presented a unique

record.

In every type of college activity, and in that spirit which belongs

to East Carolina Teachers College, the class of '25 has laid at the feet

of her Alma Mater a worthy contribution.

In November we organized ourselves, after due consideration and thought,

under the leadership of Ella Outland, who proved that she was hoth worthy

and capable of being president of the class.

June 1-Class Day.

June 2-The most important date of our whole school life, the presentation

of diplomas.

A note of sadness creeps in as we chronicle these events, for, we realize

there has heen so much left undone. We have done onr best as a class, and

when we have passed from the doors of our Alma Mater into real life, we

feel that we shall be capable of representing E. C. T. C. in our lives and by our

example always.

be left behind to follow in our noble footsteps. Therefore, let it be

known that all former wills are declared by us null and void.

ments, and our eternal love and devotion.

may never be without his boon companion.

save her voice by telling the many "C" classes to "draw it to the line."

Item V. To Mr. Austin we do will and bequeath the ingredients for a cake,

their imagination.

Senior Normal Glass Prophecy

NEW YORK CITY, N. Y. The most brilliant social affair of this sea-

and Frances Warren last evening. Misses Tucker and Warren are two

of New York's leading business ladies. Miss Tucker is director of the

Physical Education Department at Columbia University, while Miss

Warren is director of the History Department.

The fete was given in honor of Educational Advisor of the President's

cabinet, R. C. Deal, and his Private Secretary, Virginia Johnson. Assistant Secre-

uated from East Carolina Teachers College in 1925.

McCracken, chief interior decorators of Europe, offered their services to the

hostess; the decorations evidenced the hands of artists. Everywhere the color

scheme of blue and white (the colors of the class) were used.

Mlle. Marie Dupont (in private life Miss Mary Reid Daniels) famous

Parisian actress, was seen in the leading role. She was supported by Thelma

Brown, Blanche Evans, Hettie Gardner, Carrie Mae Knight, Catherine Fisher,

and Janie Delle Carawan. Probably never in all history has such a company of

stars performed.

Miss Annie Ives Andrews, Dot Broughton and Pegg Bullock, substantial

modistes of Greenville, plan all the gowns that Miss Daniel and her support-

ers use.

The draperies, furnishings, etc., uSed in the apartment were purchased from

the Edwards Supply Store, Mary, Lida and Daisy having joint stock in this firm.

The menu for the evening was planned by the well known dietitians. Margie

Lee Horton, Bessie Norville and Helen Jones, ably assisted by Selma Bowers,

U. S. Food Commissioner.

The Freshman Class

FLOWER: White Rose COLORS: Purple and White

MOTTO: "Not failure, but love aim is crime."

CLASS POEM

Three score and more we came

Quite fresh to Teachers College,

Yet, we're a band of happy workers,

We, the class of twenty-eight.

Our aim is to be good teachers,

Mighty in word and in deed

Always ready to lend a hand.

Or help a wanted need.

The college laws we had to learn.

And take a test on them, too;

Mid many other hardships.

For our trials are not a few.

Thus we feel, as our motto says,

"Not failure, but low aim is crime,"

Then midst our trials and joys,

We'll strive to reach the heights sublime.

And as time passes on its way,

Our freshman year is creeping.

But now it is almost gone

And our last rewards we're reaping.

Then year by year in every way,

We'll strive to do our best.

Always raising our standards,

Until they're among the rest.

Dear old memory your place will be great,

Tho' we, as a class, stray afar.

For the affection we have for you today

Neither distance nor time can mar.

So watch us as the years go by.

Until we mount the heights.

We'll carry with us on our way

Our memories to aid nur fights.

The Witching Hour

"Come to order," the Pesident cries,

"It's 1 A. M., and a new case before us lies."

After stating the case they said, "May

Each one of us have our say?"

First to speak was Mary Outland,

"Nothing like the truth is what we demand."

"We didn't get it," reminds Copeland,

"So let us chastise her with the hand."

The Smiths gave a loud derisive laugh

And said, "Pshaw, all that's chaff."

Parsons, being shocked beyond measure,

Primly said, "Self-control is a treasure."

"Well, the only thing to do," says Gray.

"Is that we send her far away."

"What has she done?" Ivey asks,

"That we can impose so hard a task."

"I'm sleepy, oh, so sleepy," says Jones,

Amidst the order she sighs and moans.

Thomas with her mouth wide open.

Said what should never have been spoken.

The President raps, and calls, "Come to order,"

In the land of sleep, Jenkins is on the border.

Trexler pleads, "Let us haste away.

And come back later another day."

Allen. Usrey and Hartness pleaded

For the rest we so much needed.

Only Taylor and Cogdell lament

That no more time on the case is spent.

"Let us drop the case," says Vick,

"And that will do the trick."

The cry arose, "Let us adjourn."

In lock step they went out turn by turn.

Class Mascot

CLASS POEM

We are the Junior Normal Class,

Three hundred number we.

In many sections tho' we be

Just one big family.

Memories return of our early history,

Thoughts of autumn of '24.

Of the time when we Came to Greenville.

And thought t'would rain forevermore.

But soon our path looked brighter.

As we united as one

We realized that opportunities lay before us.

That our tasks were just begun.

So we took up our Junior Normal work,

With a good will and determination

To do whatever was right

Since we'd choosen this honorable vocation.

Altho' our "C" class of '24 strove

To win honours and fame,

We learned to be good losers,

To do noble things in life's game.

We were loyal to our colors.

which were Lavender and White;

For the success of each member

We wish with all our might.

In '26 we will be Seniors

Of dear old E. C. T. C.

Altho' we have had many trial

May we efficent teachers be.

"BROKE"

No one knows how it feels to be broke,

Never to have a cent;

'Till all his money belongs to others,

Because it's already spent.

Others sympathize and tell you

That they have been broke also;

But you'll notice if you've a mind to,

That they have a pile of dough.

This broke feeling is a bad one,

You see many things for which you care;

You never feel that you can afford them,

'Cause you've not a cent to spare.

Every day you want more things.

That you adore but cannot afford;

You say so much about being broke.

All the folks around you are bored.

But if your prospects grow any brighter.

And you see any money comin' in,

You're glad to see your friends and debtors,

Even greet them with a friendly grin.

Then if you pay debts and more debts,

And have some more money to spend;

You're likely to meet most all your friends,

'Cause you have some money to lend.

It isn't so much fun to be broke once,

Even if later you have good luck;

But always to look on the bright side.

Takes a mighty lot of pluck.

Now my friends, let me tell you.

If you don't care to get in this pie.

Don't spend your money before you get it.

If you do you'll want to cry.

For it's easier to pay for what you need now

And let the rest alone.

Than it is to spend it before hand

And then need it after it's gone.

FOUR TIMES A YEAR

"What is so much noise about?"

"I don't knoW, let's go see." "Goodness! our reports."

"What did you get on English?"

"I don't know, but I'm off to the post office now." Looking hke an escaped

convict, I jerked on my coat and ran around the back way in order to escape the

mob and the powers that be.

However, I ran into the raving crowd when I entered the postoffice. With

the help of my umbrella I finally reached my box, although I was taken off

my feet up into the air several times. After much suffering of the brain and the

many knocks from all sides. I opened my box with trembling fingers. By the

time I reached the open and light again my eyes had devoured the contents. It

was then that I became aware of what was going on around me.

"Landsakes! I worked my head off and then didn't get but a four." "Sally

Jones got a one." "I know I deserved as much as she did."

"Ding that old man! I never did like him."

"As hard as I worked for her, I'm going to stop work and then see what I get."

"I don't care if I did flunk the old mess, it won't do me any good any way."

With a start I remembered my roommate was anxiously awaiting the results

of her toil and laborious work. So I retraced my steps again and finally reached

my room to find Ruth Dean and Elizabeth standing in the middle of the floor,

faces scarlet, eyes sparkling and their tongues loose at both ends. The conver-

sation that followed is not publishable.

ATHLETICS

ATHLETICS is something that every college girl should take part in,

and we have found that all the girls of our college this year have been

more interested in athletics than ever before. When we think of ath-

letics we think of tennis, baseball, basketball, track, golf links and

skating rinks.

The first game of importance at E. C. T. C. is the Thanksgiving basketball

game between the two normal classes. Long before the game comes off the

girls of both classes are practicing hard, and this was noticed last fall more than

any fall previous, because the girls seemed to be more interested in the outcome

of the game. This game caused much excitment in the last quarter when the

"C"class made so many scores. This only caused the "D" class to work much

harder, and, by doing this they won be a score of 33-31. This was one of the

most exciting games in the history of the college, and we are hoping for it to be

even more exciting next year.

"Field Day" is full of lively athletic features with all classes participating.

The games played on this day decided the winners of the two silver cups. The

class winning the most points in tennis, baseball and track receives the athletic

cup and the class winning in basketball receives the basketball cup

Members of the faculty have asked that we have a "Kite Flying Contest"

in March. This will be a new sport at E. C. T. C. and we feel sure all the girls

are going to do all they can to make this day on which the contest takes place,

interesting and full pep.

When We Eat Beef

The shades of night were falling fast,

When throuh the rain the girls did pass,

Holding umbrellas over them all,

On their way to the dining hall.

To eat the beef.

Beware the beef that looks so sweet,

So tender, and arranged so neat,

For soon you'll find that underneath

Your lips, you there will have no teeth

To eat the beef.

The bell had not rung, so on the step

They stood in the rain, but soon their pep

Had sunk to such a low degree.

They wondered if they'd able be

To eat the beef.

A traveler chanced one day to come

To see us in our college home,

And said he was glad with us to dine,

But his disappointment was to find,

That we had beef.

Soon the loud and noisome bell

Pealed forth in the notes that tell

Us when it's time to go within,

And after the blessing, to begin

To eat the beef.

There in the dining hall, truth to say.

We remember to this very day.

How he left his beef on the back of hisb plate.

And learned his lesson much too late,

About our beef.

"Try not the beef." the old girls say,

"It's broken teeth, before today.

The steak and hash alike are tough,

And soon you'll find you've had enough

Of the beef."

So girls if you have some kind friend,

Who hopes to come, and spend the weekend,

Do not let his get caught by late,

But warn him ere it it too late

About our beef.

"Oh say," a poor girl feebly cried.

"This steak to chew, I've tried and tried.

But now I know what you say is true.

In this whole place, there are only a few

Who eat the beef."

Just one more word, and then I'm through.

We have our beef fixed up in stew.

We have it baked, we have it fried,

We have it hashed, we have it dried

But still it's beef.

History of Phi Epsilon

THE world today is not only calling, but is pleading for laborers in the

scientific field because the rapid scientific development has brought

about great and influential changes in social and economic conditions as

well as in thought. These changes bring about great problems that the

twentieth century must solve, and science is the only means of solving

these problems because science is the father of inventions.

Therefore, in January, 1924, a group of those students from the college

classes who were interested in this great task, organized under the direction of

Professor R. J. Slay, into what is now known as the Phi Epsilon.

Our purpose in organizing this club was to draw these students into a

mutual fellowship and thereby foster a desire for extensive study, and perhaps

research work, in all phases of science. Our aim in attempting every problem

was to broaden our experiences and gain knowledge suitable to impart to the chil-

dren of the state.

The club did some splendid work and progressed rapidly with Miss Annie

Blanche Herring as president and Miss Grace Strassburger as secretary and

treasurer. We met twice each month and studied the life and works of Madam

Curie, Louis Pasteur, Thomas A. Edison, Luther Burbank and others. At each

meeting every member told some new occurrence of a scientific nature.

During the spring we held our picnic at Flowing Spring and later adjourned

for the summer vacation.

The club did not begin work until the winter term of 1924-'25, but now we

are faithfully striving with Professor, J. A. Keech as our advisor, and Miss

Janie Jackson as president. Although the club is not permanently established we

are working with a mighty endeavor and trust that before the year passes we

will accomplish something beneficial.

REMARKABLE THINGS

2. Bill Aiken didn't say a word in Psychology class. (She was absent. )

3. Miss Davis did not meet her history class. (She was out of town.)

4. One day passed without Ruth Dean making an announcement in chapel.

(She was in the infirmary.)

5. We failed to get hash for dinner. (The butcher was sick.)

6. Miss Moore failed to inspect one day. (It was Christmas Day.)

7. A whole week went by without a council meeting.

8. We got three plates of bread for dinner.

10.Julia Tyler stopped talking a few minutes. (She was asleep.)

"Oh! Henry"

IF you were at East Carolina and you heard some one say. "Oh! Henry,

won't you move my flowers for me?" and then a masculine voice,

"Yes, ma'am, des as soon as I gets through here," we hope that you

would immediately think that the last remark belonged to no other

person than the janitor. Henry is a janitor, but not an ordinary one.

The above statement is not intended as a reflection against him, for his

environment has helped his heredity considerably, and he well deserves his rank

among the officers of the college. While he does not serve as an instructor in

any of the various departments, there is no doubt that he could give some very

good hints on sweeping and dusting.

With apologies to Henry, I will attempt to describe him. Those persons

who insist upon believing in the "Monkey Theory." would Pprobably say that

Henry didn't spring as far as some others of his kind, but I think this can be

partly explained by his "Charlie Chaplin" moustache, and his snugly fitting dust

cap, which carries out his color scheme as well. These are his outstanding characteristics.

Henry plays his part in the college life quietly, and unassumingly, but this

doesn't mean that he is lacking in personality. He has likes and dislikes as well

as anybody. His favorite place to sweep is in the Y. W. C. A. store. It is said that

he will pick up trash until it gets to be imaginary dust; and then if he doesn't get

the piece of candy, he will try other tactics. In contrast to this. Henry "des

draws de line." on cleaning another room, for it defies all of his efforts at

orderliness. He was overheard one day, saying, "Misss Jenkins I'm afraid to

tech anything in here. I can't tell which you wants to keep and which you

don't." She agreed with him and then as he turned to leave, she said. "Oh!

Henry, please bring me that pile of old newspapers out of the trash can."

Bruce Ellis, '26.
