Arms and the man" I do not sing. But of her I who stood by at the founding of a State - a State brought forth in poverty and nurtured in adver- In war she sacrificed, in peace she endured and looked forward to a better day for her children. Of the women of North Carolina I sing - the fairest among the fair, the bravest among the brave! i- i- She has justified her emancipation; she has taken charge of herself. She has un- loosed the fetters of tradition and given the State a new type of mastery. Not the mastery of might; but the mastery of con- science, justice, sympathy, and a new set of spiritual values. Where man is most civilized, there woman is most su- preme. i~ i~ She loves, she mothers, she nurses, she teaches, she goes into business, she makes herself at home in the pro- fessions. The pores of her mind she has opened up. * : $ For

her -no haunting fear frets the passing hour. The smile of pride is on her countenance. The sweet- ness of victory is in her voice. She is wise, for the experience of the ages is hers. Supreme confidence is given only to those who know and know that they know. ; i- 4" She has no quarrel to make with the world - it is hers to serve and enjoy. She loves and is loved in return. She is beautiful, for she represents life at its highest peak of service. She works, she thinks, she sees, she sings, she dreams. i~ & The next generation is hers. It will grow to her stature, for she it is who will nurse it; it will know what she knows, for she it is who will teach it; it will be what she is, for she it is who will lead it. I hail her, Queen of the State. L I s

X/TISS AGNES L. WHITESIDE, teacher of Primary Education and Supervisor of Practice Teaching in the primary grades in the train- ing schools, had been a member of the Faculty for fourteen years and throughout that time was vitally connected with the growth of the col- lege, for years the very heart and soul of the primary work. She was largely responsible for the organization of the observation and practice teaching work, especially during its formative stages or during the period of expansion.

On the morning of August 8, Dr. Meadows, director of summer school, at the morning assembly devoted to her memory, made a talk that warmed the hearts of those who knew her. He took her life as the theme to show what makes a successful teacher, summing up the qualities that made her eminently successful, and attempting to give some idea of what she meant to the College. These were: She knew her subject matter and was always eager to get new ideas and she knew how to present them. She was thoroughly conscientious. She had personality, attracting people, especially children. Faith in her work, in others, and in her God. were all strong in her. "There are many teachers who owe their success to Miss Whiteside."

While she sleeps among her own people in the Tennessee hills, her spirit lives in North Carolina. She has left her impression upon primary education in North Carolina.

Senior Class Poem

Behold our Alma Hater,

In splendid riament dressed. Upon her brow she wears a crown,

A shir upon her breast. A beacon of light she sent to us

From out her azure dome. Ridding us to enter

And adopt her as our home. she imparts to us a message,

In solemn tones and low: "You are 'not at the top, but climbing' -

Your journey treacherous and slow." Lead onward. Alma Muter!

Lead onward, day by day! We follow, as humble daughters should-

Proud mother, lead the way!

Class History

INTRODUCTION

IT is not the intention of the authors as they write the following volumes tc> write something famous - something so famous that it will prove an abomina- tion to future students. Teachers and Instructors of history, do not spoil our story by compelling your students to read it. Rather than to "stir any soul to wrath" we prefer finding our history between pined pages - its contents unknown. "History" says Van Loon, "is the mighty tower of experience which time has built amidst the endless fields of bygone ages." We women can appreciate that definition - because as a rule we read that history is "all that man has ever hoped for, thought of, or achieved. In the volumes that follow, you read of the deeds and achievements of women. We have sought to tell this story clearly and impartially. Out of the multitude of facts, which might lie included in the domain of achieve- ments accomplished by a group of women in 1928-1931, we have recounted of most importance. Thanks is due East Carolina Teachers College for the opportunities she is annually presenting.

VOLUME I

The challenge for the future leaders of our country met with a hearty response, when in September 1927, the flower of young womanhood migrated from the mountains and swamps of North Carolina and other states to East Carolina Teachers College to drink from her fountain of knowledge, 68 in number, fresh in quality and green in color, we wandered about the campus. Many thanks to the Y. W. C. A. girls who made us feel at home by their friendly visits to us those first days.

In vain we called upon that store house of high school seniors' knowledge to assist us in the trying ordeal of registration ! We accepted, apparently, with child-like faith the monstrous burden of courses that was suddenly heaped upon us.

After we had become acclimated to East Carolina Teachers College, we met ami organized our class, choosing Alma McGinnis as president, Hannah Turnage as vice president and Dorothy Richardson secretary and treasurer.

VOLUME II

And then, another year came around and we were Sophomores - more sophisti- cated. We discarded the little timid freshman reply - "I don't know'' - and took up - "I don't believe I recall just now."

We could go down town any afternoon except Saturdays and Sundays - and some of us went then. We went calling at least once every week, and we had company one night each week - or if we chose - we let "him" come Sunday after- noon. We spent three week-ends away from the college every single term. Miss Morton occasionally gave us permission to take meals in town with "relatives," (I put "relatives" in quotations to let the reader know that accidents happen in history as well as in other subjects).

In the early fall fun in a "kiddish" > time for good children to g0 to bed.

Then came clays of hard work and, excitement, for we must make that Junior- Senior banquet a success. On Saturday night, May in. : , jubilant crowd strolled into the banquet hall, there to remain until the wee hours of morning bid us leave, hut with ns we carried away pleasant memories of that eventful night.

VOLUME IV

The one thing that so greatly effects the freshman and offsets his mental temperament, yet gives to the Senior an air id' accomplishments, is this: "You've

got to he a Freshman before you're a Sophomore; you've got to he a Sophoi '

before you're a Junior; you've got to he a Junior before you're a Senior" - and when you get to he a Senior - Well- So are we.

As we entered the last lap of the race for diplomas we felt - and perhaps looked quite different from what we did four years before. Xo. we weren't exactly digni- fied - just hail a lot of work to do--practico teaching and all that. Work will make any body look different - hut work was what we were working for and didn't mind.

We did a lot of things of importance that year. Our Senior play was great and

e Junior-Senior Banquet! Did those Juniors know how to entertain? They did.

When we begin naming the events in succession, our mind goes off at a tangent and we find ourselves reminiscing. The first year we were here we wrote home ..Mother, I'm so homesick I don't know what to do. Hut then four years of living here has made it home. "It took a heap o' sunshine and shaihler" as Edgar Guest says, hut we've made it home and now we leave reluctantly.

The summer sun is setting and we see the twilight approaching. That twilight we call "Commencement." And then winter begins.

Next vear we go out to take ,,ir place in the world. Working. Smiling. Accomplishing. Watch ns.

Following the comedy we heard beautiful music. It was an orchestra b*d by Emma Watson dressed in a chic uniform. Some "of the players were Mary Adams, Beatrice Boyd. Anna Clark and Tiny Hammond

The scene shifted and we saw Lucy Fortescue being taken to a hospital. She had lost her mind completely because her students could not learn to spell her name, and she had gone around spelling ever since. Mary Biddle took her place in the school as head of the mathf-nanr- department.

Further down on Broadway was spied Helen Griffin and Ester Mae Griffin, who had organized nine hundred ninetv-nine Sewing 'circles.

We next saw Maurice McCullen hastening to catch a train. Reporters and photographers besiege her on both sides. She is on her way to some Foreign country.

We were proud to see Alma McGinnis and Florence Taft riding down Broadway in a big limousine. They are both United States Senators now.

There was a traffic jam. and in two planes, side by side, we saw Margaivt Bryan and Ruth Pittman Letha Newton and Margaret Vick. who are both airplane mechanics, were riding with Margaret and Ruth. They said thai Nancy Usery was one of the best pilots at the Roosevelt Field. Zuliene Johnson had recently won an endurance record. Verla Griffin and Margaret Myers were also aviatrix.

In Egypt we found Nora Lee Harris. Miriam Mullen, and Maggie Hinson. They have been in Egypt about two years, measuring pyramids and poking around old ruins.

As we left the Scientific Observatory, neither of us spoke. The fate of our class had been unusual. That day we had seen them scattered to the four corners of the Earth and two on Mars.

Sophomore Class Poem

Calling us onward is our Alma Mater.

Let us heed unto her call.

For on passing two more milestones

We ivill then have reached our goal.

In a group we must reach it;

None should stop along the way,

For the highest of our ambitions

Are only dreamed in a single day.

Our college days are dear to us.

Yet we must leave them all behind us;

But why should we wear a tear when these feiv

days are done? For our memoirs will remind us Of the Class of '33.

Senior Normal Class History

o

HOW well we remember that blue Monday, September 22, 1929, the day of our arrival. What a merry time slipping and sliding from building to building, to classes, and dining room through the mud and rain as the rain fell on, and on! How unkind we thought old Man Sunshine was for not playing his part and giving us a warm welcome to the castle of our dreams. True it was that we wanted, and needed the sunshine, but, oh, how common it was to see the poor "C's" attempting to aid the rain in its day's duty by sympathetically mixing huge tear drops with rain drops.

"C's" we were called, but what did that mean to us? Was it because we were not rated as high as A or B ? No, it couldn't mean that. In that case we should be even lower than "D's," and was not that what we would be a year later? How green we were ! The buildings were strange to us and faces, faces, faces everywhere of girls, women, teachers, and only one lone co-ed. all strangers at first but not for long ! Of course we would soon gain their friendship.

Green C's we were, but when told we could organize we lost no time in getting our affairs into shape; and soon we felt sure that we would sail on the ship of "Success" with Captain Nellie Stewart and her mates in command.

Initiation! That horrible day. How we dreaded it! Finally the day came, and we felt that it was doom's day, and no less, as we entered into the performance of the day expecting anything. As our preceeding fellow C's had done, we came out tired but better and wiser girls. To our surprise we had enjoyed it.

Time had slipped by and Thanksgiving was approaching. Everybody was telling us about the basketball games, but we the "< "s" knew from that time on we could be victorious over the "D's." We won !

Thrills! Our "C" year was ended at last. Books could be turned in, trunks packed, diplomas presented to the "D's" and Seniors. Oh, bountiful prophecy, and drift into homeland once again.

All too soon August melted into September, and again the gong sounded. This time we were "Big Sisters," not the insignificant "Little Sisters" as we were the preceding year. Now we realized that it was we who could be good scouts and direct the "C's" and Freshmen over the campus.

We, one hundred seventy-one strong, were making a short cut for our longed for diplomas. A few of us played the part of a sly fox and came two summers, thus receiving our diplomas in December; others came one summer and received their diplomas in March.

In our second year Myrtle Kuykendall was put at the helm, who with her sub- ordinates was, to steer us through.

As before, we were eagerly prepared for initiation, then for Thanksgiving. Alas! The struggle was over and sadly we surrendered our treasured token, the cup, to the "C's" and congratulated them on haying been victorious over us, the Senior Normals.

Our main problem of our Senior-Normal year was practice teaching. Could wo live through it and look the same? Where is the "D" who has not experienced sleepless nights and heart breaking days worrying over practice teaching? We lived through it it was not so bail after all! Another problem the Senior- Normal play. Who would be chosen for the hero, the heroine, and whatnot? Thrills and heart throbs !

This year, too, passes on. Nothing is now left except history and memories.

Senior Normal Class Prophecy

/^\XK cold dreary night, we were comfortably seated on a soft bear-skin rug

^-^ before a large open fire in the "Y" lint, discussing graduation and the trips we hoped to take after our college career had ended. As we sat gazing into the fire, one of the huge logs rolled over and from beneath, a blue flame leaped up making a strange noise. We looked at each other as if demanding some explanation. We were dumbfounded when we turned back to the fire. Within the name was the dim outline of a plane. Suddenly, the fire was gone, and we were no longer in the hut

but standing watching the big plain Lo! it was our president looking d around the plane in traveling tugs, t to commencement in 1941, one hundr

All the girls had come in plai in regular liners. Roommates and old friends were reunited; exciting time with everyone trying to talk at once. Greeting were sib-need by the beginning of the commencement program.

Afterwards, the entire elass, with guides, joined a sight seeing tour of the campus. Many new buildings bad changed the appearance of our Alma Mater; even the old buildings seemed strange as they had new units. The new dormitories were occupied by the co-eds, who, in fact, out numbered the girls. The beauty of the lake called forth memories of the beginning of that work. The whole campus was a model in landscape gardening. As we crossed the antiquated rail- road track, the rusty engine was an object of hilarious laughter. We had almost forgotten there had ever been such an object as a locomotive engine. When we asked our guide about "privileges," she laughed and said, "all we know about them is what we find in the queer little purple handbook found in our library museum.

By three o'clock Monday afternoon, we were ready for our tour around the globe. The smooth hum of the motor signified the readiness of the plane for its journey. All were aboard in a short time; the crowd moved back as the massive ship arose in the air; and the class of 1941 gave us a send off with a resounding cheer.

What a chatter on the ship ! We were finding out all about each other. We were thrilled over the fact that one hundred per cent was back for the reunion. All were still teaching, though many had changed their names to ones they liked better. Two records broken! and now we were one hundred per cent on the ten days trip around the world. How interesting were the tales of home building and school management ! Each had a unique way of ruling the two at the same time.

At the end of ten days we were back on campus. Each girl was eager to get out her own plane and go back to her own home and life. All pledged to return in 1951.

The dying sound of the last plane seemed to end in a splutter which suddenly became a falling coal, and lo ! rubbing our eyes, we saw the flame flicker out, leaving us in the semi-darkness of the "Y" hut.

From the View Point of a Freshman

' I "HE day of days had come at last, and here I was at * E. C. T. C. I gazed around me at my surroundings, and with a homesick sigh I entered a building called Cotten Hall. There I met Miss Morton. After the preliminaries had been staged, one of those intellectual sophomores led me to a room in another building, and there left me. Was this place to be my home for four long years? Visions of home and friends passed through my mind, and my longing for home got the best of me for a few minutes.

After a few days I became one of the "gang," and we really had good times. Things went on as usual about a month, and then it was announced that we would be given a chance to join a society.

Then, initiation week rolled around. Mother never thought I was much of a housekeeper when I stayed at home, but the way these upper-classmen had me chasing around doing their fall cleaning for them, they must have thought me quite an artist at such tasks. I walked in the road like all Freshmen, and my hair made a good sliding board for the flies. Every time I came to a door, I barked, meowed, and brayed until I became a real musical artist.

Last quarter I dreamed of compound interest and bank discount; but this term it's aliens and sun behavior till I really can't think of anything else. I don't know why I'm writing all of this. I do not know how to end, so I'll stop. Three cheers for E. C. T. C.

Everyone comes to class meetings. Mr. M. L. Wright doesn't suggest things. Grace Gardner doesn't meet the Council. Dr. Bebarker gives an "A" in Math. Psychology becomes a crip.

Student Government meetings are not very "important." Mass meetings are not compulsory. Dates leave the campus before 10:00.

We can leave for a week-end without producing a birth certificate and full pedigree.

Girls can smoke on the campus.

Somebody overcuts chapel ('?).

The fuses never blow out.

E. C. T. C, State, and Duke are consolidated.

Chicken, peas, and ice cream do not appear for Sunday dinner.

Bible is elected by the entire student body.

Any member of the Tecoan staff survives.

Front walks are paved at E. C. T. C.

It is safe to approach the postoffice at twelve o'clock.

Mrs. Jeter gives out sandwiches to take out of the dining hall.

'Come a little closer"

The Poet's Corner

Ballad

By V. 0. Mee, C.O.D., P.D.Q., N.G.

I came to college

To get a degree, But I soon found out

They don't give 'em free.

I bought a book

To help in the cause, But my report showed

There wasn't no Santa Clai

I took Chemistry Lab., But I still don't know

How they can take out water From HoO.

I liked Trig very well, Took it four years;

Then we two parted In silence and tears.

I tried a little. Physics, But it proved a killer;

I switched to Education, Just far a filler.

Xow. I'm on the fence,

And feeling free; But I had to leave college

Without a degree.

I can not pass. They make me lie down in sleep- 1 me into troubled waters. They torment my soul: they lead me in paths of forgetfulness in spite of fate. Yea though I study all night to rid myself of thy presence, oh, ignorance, thou art with me; thy rod and thy start' they comfort me-not. Thou prepares! no answers before me in the presence of my teachers: thou fillest mine eyes with tears; my brain runneth empty. Surely ignorance and illiteracy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the same class forever.

We, the Staff of the 1931 Tecoan, have endeavored to portray in this book a true picture of the Development of Women in North Carolina - and its relation to this - Our College. We have displayed some of the outstanding women of the different periods in North Carolina history with hopes of revealing to you the development that Women of North Carolina have made today. With this we have woven a picture of the year in its many happy phases, and we sincerely hope that you will give this book a place in your Library of Memories.
