Dr. Orval L. Phillips

We dedicate this 1954 Buccaneer

to Dr. Orval L. Phillips, "the students' friend."

In his short time here the East Carolina Registrar has gained many friends by his never-tiring willingness to help students who need academic advice.

Dr. Phillips served last year as sponsor for the Sigma Rho Phi, and at present he is taking an active part in civic organizations off campus.

In dedicating this book we are doing so little for a friend who has done so much for us.

Students make daily journeys from the dorms to classes in the Austin Building.

Looking toward Fleming Hall from Jarvis Hall, we observe students as they are going to and from classes.

The College Infirmary draws an early visit from all the freshmen at East Carolina.

An efficient college staff handles all the college's problems in the Administration Building.

Students are able to enjoy the loveliness of our arboretum while going to and from classes in the college gymnasium. The tall laundry smokestack can be seen in the background.

From a window in the Administration Building, we have a good view of the Graham and Wright Buildings.

Wright Auditorium is a real "bee-hive" of activity on registration day of each quarter. Lines like the ones in the picture are not unusual.

Ragsdale Hall, with its new wing, is the home of many of the male students at East Carolina. Married couples live in the basement.

On our way to Wright Building, we pass through the picturesque Wright Circle where we can view the lovely shrubs and fish pond.

East Carolina has a new spacious library for the students to use for their studying. The building was not complete when this shot was made.

Daily journeys to and from our Memorial Gymnasium are made by students. The scenic landscapes make the long hike less tiresome for all of us.

Campus spirit at dear ole East Carolina is as high as our tall and beautiful trees.

Freshmen girls made their first friends at dear ole East Carolina within the walls of Gotten Hall.

President's Message

You seniors are being graduated into a world of unlimited possibilities as well as a world of unstable political ideologies. Discoveries, inven- tions, and progressive thinking have projected so very many possibilities that you may feel over- come in attempting to make a wise choice for your life's work. What the future portends is rather difficult to anticipate. However, you have the basic foundation upon which to build and upon which to call for direction for the years that lie ahead. May your lives be fully enriched with God's blessings and guidance to enable you to be outstanding citizens in helping mold a Christian, democratic world where the value of the human personality will transcend all materialistic phil- osophy and harmful skepticism.

J. D. Messick

Dr. Messick serves the nation, as well

as the college, by helping with the

Easter Seal Society.

Across from our campus we see the

beautiful home of our beloved

President Messick


Dr. Jenkins, Dean of East Carolina, is

always striving to make improvements

that will benefit the student body.


A person who is ready to help in student affairs and guidance is Dr. Prewett, Dean of Men. In addition, he teaches psychology and is director of self-help work for men.


Miss White, Dean of Women, has a big job in guiding and directing the women stu- dents of the college. She is also head of self-help for women.



As Treasurer and Business Manager of

the college, Mr. Duncan does an efficient

job of handling the college funds.


Helping students keep their class sched- ules straight and getting out grades keeps Registrar Phillips busy even after office hours.


During our senior year and after gradu- ation, we come in contact with Dr. Oppelt, Director of Student Teaching and Placement.


North Carolina highways are familiar scenes to our Director of Field Service, who is constantly visiting high schools spreading the goodwill of the college.


FACULTY members, as well as students, help East Carolina live up to its name as being the "friendliest college in the state."

United States

Air Force


Now in its sixth year at East Carolina College the Air Force ROTC is one of the college's best developed depart-ments. It affords those young men who look to a promising future as a pilot, navigator, or observer an excellent oppor- tunity to receive preliminary training and at the same time complete a college degree of their choice.

A varied program, well executed by a competent staff, pro-vides the cadets with an interesting four-year course in ROTC. Included among the highlights are such events as the annual Military Ball sponsored by the Cadet Officer's Club, trips with the Rifle team to other colleges, individual flights with members of the staff, and finally a trip to summer camp for a real peek at Air Force life.

With the need for increased security and defense the prod-ucts of the ROTC program are highly valuable. Graduates of the East Carolina department have established records that are far superior to most colleges, and there are indications that the best is yet to come. As greater advances are made in the world of flight, the training of ROTC cadets will improve.

These and many more features combine to develop the high scholastic and leadership qualities of the future officers in the world's greatest air force.

Student Government

Headed by Mitchell Saieed, the Student Legislature of East Carolina has maintained a working pace this year that will require much effort for future groups to duplicate.

Some of the activities include the revising of the constitution and standing rules, the sponsoring of one of the biggest Homecom- ings ever, and the planning and putting over the May Day program. A dance was given for the freshmen in the Fall. Each year the Legislature is co-sponsor of the student pro- duction. The SGA sponsors Cleanup Week, Teacher Criticisms, and the Student Budget Office.

For the past few years the Legislature has sent delegates to the North Carolina Student Legislature and has had members elected as officers of the group each time.

Tau Chapter of Phi Sigma Pi was founded at East Carolina College in 1928, seven years after the fraternity became a nationally organized group. Since Tau Chapter was founded it has offered membership to more than 350 students and faculty members of the college.

In keeping with the aims of scholarship, the fraternity limits its mem-bership to men who have at least a "2" average. They must be recog-nized and proven campus leaders who hold the respect of their teachers and fellow students. Membership in the club is determined by secret bal-lot of active members.

The social side of the club revolves around an annual Sweetheart Dance and an annual Founder's Day banquet. The dance is a school-wide affair at which the chapter's sweetheart is crowned. The Founder's Day Banquet is a closed meeting to review annual accomplishments of the chapter and inaugurate new members.

"To Serve" lies behind all the activities of the Sigma Rho Pi. The boys in this service fraternity are always available when help is needed. Examples of their serving the college include: ushering at all football games, assisting in raising funds for the athletic department, giving a helping hand in the High School Day activities.

One of the projects this fraternity has undertaken was the donation of a trophy case to the new gym. One hundred per cent of the members of this organization volunteered blood to the Red Cross Bloodmobile when it was on our campus.

It is not all work and no play for in the spring they have an annual beach party. Throughout the year there are banquets held to promote brotherhood among the members of the fraternity.

Pi Omega Pi's primary objective - promoting and honoring superior scholarship - was furthered by the initiation of business education stu-dents with high scholastic averages, by honoring prospective members at the Founders' Day Tea, and by the presentation of the Thomas Clay Wil-liams Memorial Scholarship Award to the outstanding graduate in busi-ness education.

We have fun, too. Our Halloween carnival and Valentine dance, co-sponsored with FBLA, are given for all the student body. The Valentine dance is always one of the best dances on the campus and enjoyed by all who attend. Our sponsors entertain us at an annual Christmas party at which time we prepare a Christmas box for a needy family.

In our program of service to the department and the college, we spon-sor the annual Pitt County Typewriting Contest, bring leaders in busi-ness education to the campus for conferences and demonstrations, and offer our services in helping with all departmental activities.

In April, 1953, the Phi Omicron celebrated its first anniversary and having endured the "growing pains" established itself on East Carolina's campus. Plans were made for a busy year filled with numerous activities.

In September, eleven outstanding junior and senior leaders in Home Economics were initiated into the honorary. After the initiation, the next highlight was our Fund Workship in which cookies were made to sell to fellow students and faculty members. Other activities included a Red Cross campaign, giving Thanksgiving baskets, making improvements in our department, and a dinner meeting in the spring.

Singing French and Spanish songs, entertaining French cadets from Kinston with an informal tea, having an annual get-together at Atlantic Beach, and attending national Sigma Pi Alpha meetings represent a small part of the Phi Sigma Chapter's many activities at East Carolina College.

A French- or Spanish- speaking exchange student contributes greatly each year to the fraternity by stimulating an interest in and relating a more intimate knowledge of the people, customs, and culture of foreign countries, which is the main objective of the Sigma Pi Alpha.

This year opened the first full year of the chapter's activities as we are one of the youngest fraternities on the campus. The fraternity got off to a good start, too, with plans being made for the sponsoring of the North Carolina Academy of Science, to be held here for the first time in the his- tory of the college. It is hoped that more student research can be initiated in the college through our fraternity.

We expanded this year to include the Math Department because it was decided that natural science and mathematics are inseparable.

Everyone has a purpose and ours is more knowledge and better un-derstanding of the world about us. We shall succeed in our purpose, for "Science Conquers All."

Coach Jack Boone's East Carolina Pirate foot-ballers won their first North State Conference football crown this year, compiling an impressive record of six wins and no losses in loop play. The Bucs came out on the short end of the score in the first annual Elks Bowl game played here January 2, as Morris Harvey College took away a 12-0 victory.

The only other loss of the season came in the Tampa game, when the Bucs were upset 18-13 by the Florida team. East Carolina was playing the contest without the fulltime services of All-Con-ference Quarterback Dick Cherry. The loss broke a seven-game Buc win skein.

In other non-conference clashes Boone's charges chalked up impressive wins, walloping Stetson 40-6 and Wilson Teachers 41-0 in the sea-son opener. The Pirates began the 1953 campaign with the Teachers in College Stadium and just proved to be completely out of the class of the vis-itors.

Having lost their first contest in Florida to Tampa, East Carolina bounced back the following week to hand a strong Stetson team a sound thrashing. The Hatters were never in the game after the first half. A steady rain failed to halt the Bucs. Cherry and Boyd Webb shared the quarterbacking.

Neither mud nor rain nor Lenoir Rhyne's Bears could stop the good right arm of All-Stater Cherry in the locals conference opener. Tossing 10 completions in 13 tries, Cherry led the Bucs to the win over the defending champs by a score of 34-0. Bobby Hodges, co-captain, pulled in two of four touchdown passes. Half-back Emo Boado tallied twice.

Playing Clyde Biggers' Catawba Indians the following week in Salisbury, the East Carolina squad had their hands full in tak-ing a 13-6 decision. A Cherry-to-Hodges pass gave the Bucs their first tally in the early part of the game. Catawba came back in the final period to tie the contest at six-all. Cherry sneaked over from the one to give the Boonemen their margin of victory.

Before a Homecoming crowd of nearly 10,000, East Carolina and Elon put on an offensive show that will long be remembered by local rooters. Once again it was Little All-American Dick Cherry who made the difference as the Pirates outscored Elon 45-25. Wil-lie Holland, Larry Rhodes, Dave Lee, Algie Faircloth, and Louis Hallow were defensive standouts.

The following week East Carolina traveled west to Cullowhee to do battle with Western Carolina. Winning their fifth game without a loss, the Bucs wrecked the Catamounts' Homecoming to the tune of 26-7.

The locals clinched their first North State title by trouncing Guilford 40-0 here October 24. Claude King scored two touchdowns, as did Paul Gay. The win was the sixth straight for the locals.

Wearing their newly-won crown, the Pirates swamped Appalachian 40-7 in their last home contest. Dick Cherry passed for four touchdowns, giving him a total of 16 TD aerials. Paul Gay galloped 54 yards for paydirt on the second play of the game. ECC ended their conference play with a 6-0 record.

Post season honors won by East Carolina players were many. Cherry and Hodges re- ceived honorable mention for the AP Little All-American squad. Cherry, Hodges, and Gay were named to the Greensboro Daily News All-State team. These three, along with Holland, Hallow, Faircloth, and Lee were selected for the All-Conference squad. The Bucs' soph quarterback was a unani- mous choice. Rhodes and King got honorable mention for All-Conference.

East Carolina's Pirates overcame the jinx against top-seeded teams in the North State Tournament to capture its first conference title since entering the loop in 1948. Coach Howard Porter's hoopsters, paced by All- Conference Center Bobby Hodges' record scoring feats, compiled an impressive 21-1 record during the 1953-54 season.

The Bucs' outstanding record came through constant teamwork of every player. Play- maker Cecil Heath and rebounder Charlie Huffman were named to the All-Conference squad along with Captain Hodges, who set a new loop scoring average with an approxi-

mate 27 points per contest. Among the other players with over a ten point per game average were Huffman, sophomore Guard J. C. Thomas, and the driving freshman Forward Don Harris.

Hodges, already a unanimous All-Confer-ence choice, was named the tourney's most valuable player without a dissenting vote. Huffman was also named to the first five, and Thomas and Harris were placed with the second team.

Huffman's ability to use his dead hook with either arm caused North State players plenty of trouble.

Behind the effective hurling of Jim Byrd, Jim Piner, Ken Hall, Teddy Barnes, and Martin Byrd and the big bats of W. C. Sanderson, Gaither Cline, and Cecil Heath, Coach Jack Boone's 1953 diamond nine enjoyed a season of 16 wins against only five setbacks.

The local baseballers opened the campaign with a five-game winning streak and ended the season having won four straight. In the Eastern Division of the North State Conference the Bucs compiled a 12-4 record to come in behind Elon.

For the third consecutive year East Carolina's tennis squad came in second behind High Point and their Mexican netters in the North State Conference race. Lettermen Joe Hallow, Paul Cameron, Frazier Bruton, and Amos Stroud, along with newcomers J. W. Browning, Don Muse, and Dallas Foscue. compiled a 6-2 record in their league matches.

Outside opposition included N. C. State, Wake Forest, and George Washington. A forfeit match en- abled Wake Forest to edge the Pirate swatters 5-4.

Hallow and Cameron went to the finals in the doubles play at the High Point tournament only to be beat by High Point. Muse met the same fate in the singles event.

Left to light: Coach Howard Porter, Bruton, Cameron, Hallow, Muse, and Browning.
