Tecoan

Published by the Student Body of the East

Carolina Teachers College of Greenville, N.C.






DEDICATION

To Miss Loraine Hunter, who has taught us the truth and beauty of life and who. through the idealism of her personality and inspiration of her friendship, has taught us something of its significance, we, the student body of East Carolina Teachers College, affectionately dedicate the 1937 edition of the TECOAN.











Forward

Out of the old South has grown the South of today, and in the new order the Negro still has a place. He is a symbol of one phase, at least, of Southern life, even though many Southerners are reluctant to admit it. With this idea in mind, we have chosen as our theme "Cotton in Relation to the Negro Life of the South". By suggesting the domestic, industrial, recreational, and spiritual life of the Southern Negro, we hope to give a true impression of life in a North Carolina community.

Thus, because we live in the South, where white cotton fields are dotted with little brown picaninnies, we find it appropriate to use as a motif the Scenes we have chosen

Book V FEATURES






Here and there through the South the traveler sees three-room structures of mud-chinked logs. Inside he would see bare walls and furniture either home-made or obtained from pieces discarded by the "white folks". Undisturbed by her surroundings mammy sings over her cooking of collards and 'possum. Here is a home typical of those dotting our fields.

A Message to the Students

This message has in it three ideass: First, Success will come to you only through your own efforts. Do not rely upon "pull" for advancement, but depend upon "push" and energy. Hard work, propery directed, will not only prepare for greater service, but will insure against the pitfalls of indolence.

Second: A strong personality is worth far more than material wealth. Nothing really worthwhile has ever been accomplished without the influence of a great personality back of it. Strive earnestly to develop those characteristics which will enable you to achieve the best that your capacities will permit.

Third: service to others should be the purpose of all effort. Do not let the lack of opportunities discourage you. Do well the small tasks which come to hand an dsoon society will burden you with heavy responsibilities.

Leon R. Meadows






Miss Annie L. Morton

When Miss Morton began her duties as Dean of Women at East Carolina Teachers College in 1925, she entered wholeheartedly into the enterprise of making this institution one of the outstanding colleges of our country. With ceaseless effort and undaunted spirit, she is accomplishing her purpose. Miss Morton understands young women and helps young women to understand themselves. Those girls who have come to her with their problems have found that she is always willing to help them and they go away with a clearer understanding and a possible solution.

Dr. Herhert ReBarker

Dr. Herbert ReBarker was made Dean of Men at East Carolina Teachers College in 1933. Dr. ReBarker inspires the confidence of his students. With an open mind, he welcomes their arguments, offers advice, and is deliberate in his criticism, at all times showmg a thoroughly democratic attitude.






THE FACULTY

On March 8, 1907, a bill was passed in the North Carolina Legislature providing for the establishment of East Carolina Teachers College. When the college opened October 5, 1909, there were thirteen staff members including the faculty, President, lady principal, and college doctor. They were: Dr. Robert H. Wright, Claude W. Wilson, W. H. Ragsdale, Leon R. Meadows, Mamie E. Jenkins, Maria D. Graham, Sallie Joyner Davis, Birdie McKinney, Kate W. Lewis, Fannie M. Bishop, Mrs. Kate R. Beckwith, Herbert E. Austin, and Dr. Charles Laughinghouse.

By the end of the first year two additions had been made and there has been an annual increase in the staff to accompany the gradual but steady expansion of the college. Now there are well over a hundred staff members in fifteen departments.

Thirteen years after the opening of the college all but three of the original staff remained in the employment of the college. At present there are five active charter mem- bers on the campus. They are: Dr. Leon Meadows, Mamie E. Jenkins, Maria D. Graham, Sallie Joyner Davis, and Kate W. Lewis.

In the past year there have been eight new faculty members and several other staff members added; and with an increasing enrollment we expect other additions before the opening of the next school year.

Our faculty members are well prepared in their various fields, and they are vitally interested in the students. It is their untiring efforts to serve the students and our personal contact with them that makes our college life so enjoyable.

The Negro's happy nature is reflected in his enjoyment of music and dancing. He is often seen cutting a "pigeon's wing" to the " plink, plunk" of his banjo, or following his coon dog on a wild chase. The Negro finds ample opportunity in the South to participate whole-heartedly in his own simple forms of recreation.

SENIOR CLASS

In a sketch of the Senior Activities, no detailed account would be attempted. We have tried to keep up the Senior traditions by giving the plays and parties planned, and the results of our activities were more pleasing than the outlook in the middle of the preparation. As Seniors, we look back over our years here, and realize that they were probably the happiest of years of life.

SENIOR CLASS

Through four years of work and play, and life together, this college has been our home, ap.d our classmates - our constant companions. As we approach graduation the days of the past are recalled to us: the loneliness of that first day, the perplexities of that first registration, the fear of initiation, yet with all these the pleasures of new friends, the joy of new enterprise fraught with opportunity, and a broader and richer life than we had ever known.

Senior - what a wealth of feeling and memories and expectations the word suggests: feeling, because of the love and loyalty our class bears toward our school; memories, when we think of the pleasant and now all-too-short years we have spent here; and expectations, because we realize that now we are graduating into a new life. All that this new life holds for us will be made richer, fuller, and more significant because of what we are carrying into it from this institution. Through the coming years the one ideal that has become the motto of this school can guide us in attaining the truest and most satisfying success, a success that can be ours regardless of the trend our lives may take, if we keep the ideal of service ever before us.

In Memoriam

ALLAN WILSON MOORE

OCTOBER 6, 1915

JUNE 7, 1936

"A sweeter and a loverlier gentleman, Fram'd in the prodigality of nature, Young, valient, wise and, No doubt right royal; This spacious world cannot again offer."--SHAKESPEARE






JUNIOR CLASS

ELIZABETH COPELAND President

Two hundred and fifty strong we entered in the fall of '36 with greater zeal and determination to make this our most successful year. Junior-Freshman, the first step toward the goal, came up to every expectation. Junior-Senior, the high spot of the year, a "Prom" - the first given in the history of the college - the class holding true to its nature: Be different, yet excel.

SOPHOMOME CLASS

Thus far the members of the Sophomore Class have sailed together successfully through two years of their college course. As the voyage continues, the waters become deeper, the course becomes more interesting, and each member becomes more efficient in doing his part to help the ship baffle the waves of life.

FRESHMAN CLASS

CLIFTON BRITTON President

1937 Orientation week greeted four hundred freshmen. The entertainments from upperclassmen during this week were very successful, and helped us cross the first milestone of our four years of college life. The Freshman-Junior dance, our most important event, had the best of results. The class wishes to thank all of those who have helped make this year a pleasant one.

The last of the D classes goes out proudly upholding the record of its twenty-seven predecessors.

"Tweedles", the dramatic triumph, the party with "D's" as honorees, and the sponsoring of the formal dinner were the chief social events. The "Sing and Dance" was for gathering dimes for a memorial.

the ORGANIZATIONS











STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Elizabeth Dixon Johnson President

Johnson

THE WOMEN'S STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION

The Women's Student Government Association at East Carolina Teachers College unites the women students as no other organization does. Through unity it endeavors to help each student adjust herself to the responsibilities of good citizenship. Student government functions specifically through a council elected by the student body and by the classes. The council this year began its work in the fall by helping with freshman week. Throughout the year it has been the purpose of student government to firmly instill in each member a clearer understanding of the functions of this body and a spirit of loyalty and cooperation.

Contacts with other campuses have been made through delegates who went to the National Student Federation Congress in New York City; to the Southern Intercollegiate Association meeting in Spartanburg, South Carolina; and to the meeting of the North Carolina Federation of Students in Greensboro.

In this way student government carries on and develops.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Thornwell Gibson President

Wesley Bankston Vice-President

C. Ray Pruette Secretary

THE MEN'S STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION

The few years that boys have been coming to East Carolina Teachers College, the Men's Student Government has had much influence on their lives, as to behavior, scholarship, and morals. The purpose of the Men's Student Council is twofold. First: the Council has done quite a bit of work to further the interest of the boys on and near the campus. Second: the boys Council has tried to be a benefit to the boys in all matters, but especially in discipline problems, and in campus activities. Therefore, the members of the Men's Student Council wish the men students to know that their motive is to go forward rather than to retard their progress.

This year with Thornwell Gibson as President, the cooperation of the men has been excellent.

We feel that the Men's Association has not been in vain.

OFFICERS

Catherine Wallace President

Mildred McDonald Secretary

Juanita Davis Treasurer

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION

The purpose of the Young Women's Christian Association, one of the outstanding organizations on the campus of East Carolina Teachers College, is to help students "live unreservedly Jesus' Law of Love in every' relationship and so to know God." It is in an effort to realize this aim that the Y.W.C.A. carries on its many activities.

NORMAN

McDONALD

DAVIS






Every week-day Morning Watch is held, giving students an opportunity to begin the day with the Great Teacher. A Vesper service is planned for each Friday and Sunday evening at which time varied programs are brought to the students, including music programs; out-of-town speakers; deputation teams from Carolina, N. C. State, and Shaw University; White Gift Service; Junior Cabinet Installation; House of Comradeship Program; and Commencement Vesper Service. Prominent among the speakers this year was Miss Mary Herring of Raleigh, an applicant for the foreign mission field, who was a week-end guest.

The Y.W.C.A. has made provision for the social life by keeping the hut open for the use of students, and by giving one large social event each quarter for its members.

Of great assistance to the Y.W.C.A. in fulfilling its purpose were the advisers. Miss Lois Grigsby, Miss Emma L. Hooper, Mr. E. L. Henderson, and President Meadows.

SCIENCE CLUB

Durward Stowe President

The Science Club was organized in the fall of 1931 and under the direction of Henry Oglesby, the first president, it soon became one of the most active clubs on the campus. During the six years of its existence the Club has grown from a membership of twenty-five to one hundred twenty-five and is now affiliated with the Student Science Clubs of America. For the past two years the Club has sponsored Science Open House which has been attended by more than two thousand people. This year, with Durward Stowe as president, the Club is still marching steadily toward the goal, and plans are now being made for a presentation of a Science Pageant in the spring.






ENGLISH CLUB

Frances Barnes President

The English Club, subdivided into groups according to the special interests of the members, has to its credit this year, in addition to the regular monthly programs, the making of a literary map of the State, the performance of a one-act play at the general assembly, a public exhibit of periodicals, the improvement of the Club room, and three social events - a book party, an initiation party, and a tea for Irina Skariatina, to which everyone connected with the College was invited. Thus the Club, composed of English majors and teachers, has combined work and play.

THE 1937 TECOAN

The staff of the 1937 yearbook of East Carolina Teachers College presents this volume of the Tecoan with the hope that it has succeeded in its purpose, which has been to present true facts of student days on our campus that will live long after those days are past.

The readers will have to judge just how well the staff has achieved its ideals. Although there were many discouraging moments when' we felt unable to cope with the problems at hand, we hope that this final result of our labors will be acceptable.

The business staff is justly proud of the amount of advertising which it has obtained this year. It is grateful to the firms who have helped to make the publication of the 1937 yearbook a financial success.

The staff wishes to acknowledge the number of faculty members and students who have helped us, and also the valuable assistance of Herbert Hitch, Charlotte Engraving Co., Charlotte, Raymond Thompson, Lassiter Press, Charlotte, and "Tommy" Daniels, Dunbar and Daniel Studio, Raleigh.

TECO ECHO

The most important aim of the Teco Echo staff during the past year has been threefold: ( 1 ) to present an impartial cross-section of college activity as completely as possible, ( 2 ) to endorse any movement which we believed would result in the betterment of East Carolina Teachers College, and (3) to carry out a conservative policy, giving adequate consideration in every case before drawing conclusions. If at any time our editorial comment has seemed a bit caustic, may we repeat that nothing personal was intended. We've tried to make Teco Echo truly the voice of this college.

If the staff has achieved any measure of success, it is because of the splendid cooperation on the part of both the student body and faculty. To them we say, "Thanks a lot." To the incoming staff we offer our sincere wishes for a better Teco Echo. To East Carolma Teachers College we reaffirm our allegiance.

THE RHODORA

In May, when sea-winds pierced our solitudes, I found the fresh Rhodora in the woods. Spreading its leafless blooms in a damp nook. To please the desert and the sluggish brook. The purple petals, fallen in the pool. Made the black water with their beauty gay; Here might the redbird come his plumes to cool. And court the flower that cheapens his array. Rhodora ! If the sages ask thee why This charm is wasted on the earth and sky, Tell them, dear, that if eyes were made for seeing, Then Beauty is its own excuse for being: Why thou wert there, a rival of the rose! I never thought to ask, I never knew: But, in my simple ignorance, suppose The self -same Power that brought me there brought you. - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Pete Hill Treasurer

During the year 1936-37, the Emerson Society has done its part in carrying on those activities which enrich life on the campus. Though not the largest society in number of members, there is a spirit of loyalty and a oneness of purpose which makes the society active in social and literary affairs.

In the fall, the old Emersons united in an effort to secure new members and later, in enter- taining them at a Masquerade Ball. A major activity of the year was the sponsoring of the first diince, the Homecoming Ball.

Because the members realize that we need more literary activity for the students, they are working, with the other societies, on plans for debates on the campus. With an ideal that tends toward character-building, the year is carried on.

Realizing that a definite part of one's College life may be molded by the societies, the Poes were eager to see every freshman a live member of their society. Banners, posters, parties, words of welcome, smiles! These greeted the newcomers every day. Then came the day on which the freshman and transfers were to make their decisions. Excitement was in the air! Heads were seen together; and new students were "signing up" - some at one booth and some at the other. In the final windup, the Poes forged ahead claiming 142 members of the total 220 members that joined.

After a most colorful initiation week, the society with all its new members set out to revive the old "Poe Spirit" by seeking out and using the talent of the members.

The meetings consisting of music, dramatics, debates, socials, etc., were well planned and exceedingly interesting. To this we give credit for the most successful year of the Poe Society.

Lillian Parrish Treasurer

The Lanier Society, under the leadership of Eifie Lee Watson, has done good work this year. In the enrollment of new members at the first of the year our society ranked second, which makes us, not the largest; but certainly we have as great a spirit of cooperation among our members as any organization on the campus.

The Freshmen of the school were entertained by the Sidney Lanier Society at a picnic and marshmallow roast behind the lake. Then, after a week of torturing the Freshmen who joined our group, we brought initiation to a close by having a party in the Society Hall.

We have had very good attendance at our regular monthly meetings. The members have co-operated with a fine show of the right spirit when they have been called upon to take part in the programs.

The programs have been of varied types. One was of literary value, in which Sidney Lanier's life and works were discussed by various members of the group. Another was a Christmas program, included in which was a Christmas story told by Miss Hyman. In still other cases the members were asked to use their individual talent to contribute to the program. Future programs consist of debates, orations, and socials.

The Lanier Society sponsored the mid-winter dance and a tea.

VARSITY CLUB

At the close of the school year of '36, the Varsity Club elected Fran Ferebee as their president for the coming year.

Fran has been a success as a leader. Our treasury' for the first time since the beginning of the Club has an asset instead of a deficit on its accounts.

The Varsity Club for the first time gave the Senior members a new kind of sweater - a white sweater with a purple stripe for each year of service. This new regulation is now a by-law of our club.

The Varsity Club also for the first time sponsored a dance. The dance turned out to be a great success and we want to make it an annual event with our club.

"Bo" FARLEY" Coach

Under the able coaching of Roland "Bo" Farley, men's athletics at E. C. T. C. have progressed by leaps and bounds.

Farley, a three-letter athlete at Duke, was named on the all-southern basketball and baseball teams. Having signed a contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, he was sent by them to play with St. Jo in the Western League. Later he was traded to Rochester in the International League, but due to an injury he was forced to give up professional ball and took a position as Coach of the three major sports in the schools of Danville, Virginia. For two years he managed the Greenville Club m the Coastal Plain League. Last year he coached football for Greenville High School, and baseball for E. C. T. C, and is now coach of the three major sports at E. C. T. C.

Farley has been the backbone of athletics, and the men on the teams honor and respect him and cooperate to the fullest extent. He has been successful not only as a coach, but as a builder of men.






FOOTBALL SQUAD

FOOTBALL

VANCE CHADWICK Manager

With the opening of the tootball beasun under the new coach we find a team which possessed to an admirable degree those intangible things called spirit, and loyalty, and a desire to express them in a fighting, unflagging spirit.

E. C. T. C. won its first home game of the season, defeating William and Mary (Norfolk Division), 25' to 0. The Teachers completely outclassed the Norfolk boys in every division of play and scored in everj- period of the game. The game was featured by the sensational defense play of Carpenter and Sinclair at guard and the fine punting of Pratt, who outdistanced his man, Nixon, by an average of ten yards to the kick. The Teachers' first score came in the first period on a 20-yard pass from Shelton to Gibson, nt on a line play. In the second quarter, the Teachers scored on a 70-yard run by Riden- hour, who intercepted a pass on his own 20-yard line. In the third period the Teachers marched down the field from their opponents' 49 for successive downs, with Ferebee carrying the ball over for the touchdown. The final touch- down came in the last quarter when Pratt returned a kick for 58 yards through William and Marys defense.

The Pirates lost their second game of the season to Guilford College 6 to 0. The Quakers gained 279 yards to the Teachers' 86, but they failed to collect on the touchdown. The Quakers crossed E. C. T. C.'s goal three times - once the ball was brought back and Guilford penalized for holding - then Brinkley recovered a Pirate lateral that was brought back, fumbled, and ran over the goal line only to fumble himself. The Quakers had the ball within scoring distance but the Pirates held them off. Once the Pirates held them on the one yard mark until a fumble was recovered for a touchdown.

The Pirates lost a hard fought game to W. C. T. C, 7 to 6. E. C. T. C. outplayed, outgained, completed more passes, and gained more first downs than did the W. C. T. C. team. During the first half, the Pirates gained consid- erable ground with passes and line bucks. "Fran " Ferebee went over the goal line first, but the referee brought the ball back and penalized E. C. T. C. five yards for being offside. W. C. T. C. did not threaten E. C. T. C.'s goal throughout the first half. E. C. T. C. scored on three passes after receiving the kick-off at the beginning of the second half. The placement kick for extra point was blocked.






During the rest of the third quarter both teams gained and lost considerable ground. The Pirates came near scoring - they were on W. C. T. C.s four yard line, but wtre penalized fifteen yards. W. C. T. C. scored during the third quarter by blocking a punt behind the E. C. T. C. goal. They made the extra point on a pass play. The score W. C. T. C, 7; E. C. T. C, 6; which is the way it was when the game ended. The Pirates were on a march which couldn't be stopped it seemed, and they marched within the twenty yard line but the final ended it. The Pirates played a fine game and with a few breaks could ha\'e wcm the game. When we think of the fine showing our boys made, we realize that Coach "Bo" Farley is putting out a winning team.

The Pirates piled up 19 points in the second half of the Homecoming game with Louisburg College November 21, to blank the Trojans for the second consecutive year. The first touchdown came in the third period. Shelton took the ball, which rested on the Trojan's 10, and passed the pigskin to Gibson, who lateraled to Lindsey. Lindsey carried the ball across for the first six points. An attempted line play for the extra point failed. Early in the last quarter, after gains by Gibson and Ferebee placed the ball in scoring position on the Louisburg 23, Shelton passed to Lindsey across the goal line for the second touchdown. Shelton ran the ball across for the extra point. After the Trojan.s received the next kickoff and were held for three downs on their own 35, Brinn kicked to the Pirates' 20, and Gibson returned the punt 18 yards to his own 38. The Pirates marched straight toward the Trojan's goal line. Pratt picked up 12, Gibson 9, and Ferebee made several good gains. 'With the ball on the Louisburg 20, Shelton again passed to Lindsey for the final touchdown. The first half of play gave the Teachers 8 first downs to Louisburg's 3, but both teams made scoring threats. In the first quarter, the Pirates drove to the Trojan's 20, only to be held for downs. In the second quarter, Brinn took Pratt's punt on the Teachers' 45 and ran to the 10, only to be called back because of an offside penalty. Andrews recovered a Louisburg fumble on his 42, Gibson picked up a first down and a pass from Shelton to Lindsey was good for 15 yards. After the Teachers made three successive first downs, Louisburg's line held on the 16 yard line. Gibson, playing his last game for the Pirates was a consistent ground gainer, while the Shelton-Lindsey combination played a successful passing game.

BASKETBALL

As basketball took the spot light. Coach Farley began coaching his first basketball team at E. C. T. C. With Stowe and Ridenhour, two of last season's regulars, as the nucleus he began building his team around them. In the early training period many of the candidates made much progress and in the end proved their great worth to the team.

The season opened for the Teachers in a game with Morehead City All-Stars in which the All-Stars were forced to take the short end of a 64 to 12 score.

In a hard fought game with the Rocky Mount "Y", the E. C. T. C. team resolved to bring home a second victory of the season, and they did. The final wind up was 39 to 37.

The next game proved a different story, for the Campbell 'Camels' rode off with a win of 30 to 22.

In the game with Louisburg Coach Farley's Teachers gamed the lead in every play and ran up a score of 39 to 24 points.

The entire Pirate basketball squad went on a scoring rampage against the Washington All-Stars and netted a total of 103 points while their opponents were scoring 18 points.

Playing sensational ball and fighting all the way, the Pirates were forced to a loss of 42 to 28 from the A. C. C. Bulldogs.

The Pirates next tackled the Ayden All-Stars and forged ahead adding another victory to their list - a score of 55 to 35.

Next came the Bethel All-Stars who proved a somewhat stronger team. They, too, however, took home a loss of 32 to 29.

In the second game with the Ayden All-Stars the Pirates were not so successful. The All-Stars made a surprising attack and the Teachers barely escaped with a victory of 25 to 24.

Returning to Greenville for a second game, the Morehead City All-Stars were overcome once more and suffered a defeat of 45 to 32.

The first of a two-game series with Guilford proved to be a victory of 44 to 36 for the Quakers. However, in the return game the Pirates gained sweet revenge upon the Quakers when they trounced them by the score of 31 to 20.

Then came the fastest and most sensational game ever played on the Teachers' court - the return game between A. C. C. Bulldogs and the Teachers. Even though A. C. C. sent their 25 piece band and a large cheering section along with their team, they were unable to defeat their rival school and were bested

At Louisburg the Pirates were unfortunate and the Trojans rolled up a score of 41 to 30 against them.

The Teachers were surprised at the opposition put up by Fuquay All-Stars who walked off with the lead in a score of 55 to 47.

Pirates added a victory to their list after playing against P. J. C. The final whistle found them ahead of a 62 to 34 decision.

Next the Pirates left for their regular trip to Virginia. They received their first defeat from the Naval Training school at Norfolk the score be^ng 60 to 20. Another defeat came from Norfolk Divi- sion of William and Mary who won by a score of 41 to 36. Again the Pirates accepted defeat - this time from the Naval Apprentice School at Newport News. The score was 43 to 25.

Coming home the Pirates fell victims to High Point College who took a win of 42 to 28.

Next the Washington All-Stars lost another game to the Pirates. This time the final tally was 57 to 31.

The following game was another loss to the Naval Apprentice School who claimed the greater of a 35 to 39 score.

It seemed that the Washington All-Stars just couldn't get enough. So we find them victims of an- other shake-up - a 28 to 23 score.

The Teachers closed the season with a second loss to William and Mary - a score of 38 to 34.

BASEBALL

Something of the potency of the Teachers' 1936 baseball team can be seen in every game played. Coach Farley developed a splendid combination, both in the field and with the ashen stick.

The Teachers ushered in the season with a two- game series with the Quakers. The teams managed to split the honors of the series, the Quakers win- ning the first, 14 to 1, and the Teachers, led by the faultless pitching of Wells, claimed the second victory, 4 to 0.

After the first series with the Quakers, the Teachers again split honors - with Panthers of High Point. This time the Teachers took a 5 to 3 victory and, unable to regain their winning stride, suffered a defeat of 6 to 4.

On April 17, the Teachers left on their first baseball tour of the season. With their chins up, they met the Apprentices of the Naval Apprentice School. In a game in which each team was equally matched, lack of time forced the game to be a 2 to 2 draw.

Next day the Braves of William and Mary capitulated after a battle of two and one-half hours. This a game met with little resistance. Holland displayed splendid pitching allowing only live hits. The Teachers, however, sent a fusilage of hits against the "Brave" hurlers and drove the "apple" to all corners of the field to hang up a victory of 12 to 4.

Next the Teachers left on a campaign and won three of five games played. Those falling at their bats were; P. J. C. Oak Ridge, and Guilford. In two games with High Point, however, the High Point team just couldn't be beat.

Much of the success of the 1936 season is due to Manager Hyatt Forrest who handled the duties of his office in a most capable manner. And to the team we must give congratulations for their cooperation with Coach Farley.

WOMAN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

GLADYS BINGHAM Coach

The beginning of a busy season for the women athletes of E. C. T. C. was suddenly interrupted by misfortune suffered by their coach, Lucile Norton, in an accident. Failure of Miss Norton to fully recover by the beginning of the winter quarter necessitated refilling of her place by another.

Miss Norton had won the love and esteem of all who knew her and to fill her place was thought to be out of the question. However, the opening of the winter quarter found Miss Norton's successor equally alert. And before long the new coach, Gladys Bingham, had won the cooperation, love, and respect of all.

Miss Bingham is a graduate of State Teachers College of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. From Peabody she received her Master's degree. While a student at S. T. C. Miss Bingham was active in all sports: basketball, baseball, soccer, and field hockey. After graduation from there in '31, she became director of Women's Athletics in her Alma Mater.

Three cheers to Miss Bingham for her loyalty and for training a great basketball team !

The Woman's Athletic Association was organized in 1912 and since that time it has been one of the most active organizations on the campus. Regular monthly meetings are held to discuss the athletic activities on campus and provide a social hour for its members.

WOMAN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

The Physical Education Department has cooperated with the Association to sponsor various athletic activities. Now the Association promotes an intra-mural program including basketball, Softball, croquet, archery, horseshoe, tennis, and hiking. Points are awarded for the participation in these activities and the awards consist of the college monogram and bronze intra-mural medals.

The Association sponsors inter-collegiate basketball and awards certificates and letters to those participating. It promotes special events as track and field days and play days.

At the close of the basketball tournament, "The Round Robin Tournament", this year, the Wildcats from Wilson Hall came out on top. They won all the games they played.

Then an "All-Star" team was picked from members of the various teams. They were: Forwards, Martha Leen Beaman, Prue Newby, Lucille Rogerson, Callie Charlton, Mabel Owens, Pennie Burkett, Annie R. Boyette, Virginia Woods; Guards, Hilda Stephenson, Eva MacMillan, Josephine Jackson, Sarah Wade, Cora Joslyn, Mayo Lee, and Vileigh Austin.






GIRLS' BASKETBALL

The Women's basketball team had a must successful season. Under the guidance of Miss Bingham, the new coacli, the team soon became fit to tackle any team. The players played not as individuals but as a group and to this we give credit for their most successful season. Of the six games played only in one were they outscored. They were surely never outplayed.

The first team to fall in the hands of E. C. T. C. was the Chowan sextet. "Tee" Martin, and "Micky" Blanton, stars of last years team, tied for scoring honors - ringing up fourteen points each. Newby, a newcomer to E. C. T. C, played a fine game also, running up ten points. The superb work of all the guards added to the thrill of the game and enabled the E. C. T. C. team to win by 50 to 8.

Shortly after the game with Chowan the Wingate sextet found that they, too, were not able to take the title from E. C. T. C. When the whistle blew for the final wind-up, E. C. T. C. was ahead with a score of 36 to 22.

The next game proved to be an even more exciting game. This was played with Mitchell College. In one instant Mitchell would be ahead, but in the next the E. C. T. C. players would cut them down and take the lead. In the end the E, C. T. C. girls increased their speed and shot two goals just in time to claim their third victory. This time the score was 30 to 26.

Returning the game to Chowan, the E. C. T. C. girls again entered into it whole-heartedly. They resolved to hold down the Chowan team as they had previously done. Playing sensational ball and keeping the lead in every minute of the game, the E. C. T. C. girls brought away another win over Chowan

Next the E. C. T. C. team went on a trip. The first game was played with Mitchell College girls. Mitchell received their second sample of the E. C. T. C. teams. And in spite of fast, and steady playing, E. C. T. C. came home suffering the only defeat of the season. They were forced to bow to Mitchell to the tune of ?2 to 20.

The E. C. T. C. sextet wound up the season in the game with Boone. This was, without a doubt, the exciting game ever played by them. Not only did the Boone supporters cheer their team, but also the E. C. T. C. team. This helped the E. C. T. C. girls fight through to the eind. A few minutes before the game was over Boone was ahead about ten points. But E. C. T. C. took advantage of the little time left and ran up enough points to cause the final to be a draw 23 to 23 between the two teams.

As the season closes we find our team living up to the usual standard, having lost only one game this season.

INTRA-MURAL ATHLETICS

One purpose of Intra-mural Athletics is to provide some form of sport for all members of the student body. Another is to develop a cooperative spirit among the different members. More students are participating in each sport every year and additional events have been added to the Intra-mural program.

Each year basketball tournaments are held in which a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement prevails. Then there are the horseshoe, archery, and tennis tournaments which are equally interesting.

Other sports which are open to students are: hiking, ping-pong, and soccer.

As other programs are brought to a close, the Intra-mural program culminates in a Field Day - held May 1 this year.
