Buccaneer 1955

the 1955 Buccaneer






Business Manager













Since his appointment as Director of Student Personnel, Dr. Clinton R. Prewett, who is both an educator and administrator, has helped to con- tinue the upward march of education here at East Carolina. Students have learned that they can turn to his office for assistance with their problems.

A native of Georgia, he received his B. S. Degree from the University of Georgia, his M. A. from the University of Oklahoma, and then his Doctorate from the University of North Carolina. Before his appointment here he had been Junior Chemical Engineer with the U. S. Civil Service and a Training Foreman with Tennessee Eastman Corporation at Oak Ridge, Term. Dr. Prewett also spent two years in the U. S. Army in the office of Information and Education.

Through the help and assistance of Dr. Prewett, and others like him, East Carolina is fast becoming a leader in state and national education. As a token of our appreciation for the credit which he brings to the college we dedicate this 1955 Buccaneer to him.




What better reminder of yesterdays at East Carolina is there than Pop Williams, veteran campus policeman? Students will always re- member Pop patrolling the campus at night, sharply on the lookout for a couple lingering behind a bush or a girl whispering from her dorm window to her Romeo below. From 1914 until his retirement last year Pop Williams (with his warm greeting) was a friend of all the stu- dents - a fine symbol of our traditions of service and friendliness.


Books, swimming classes, lab sections . . . These are the activities that crowd our days. These are the materials that shape our lives here at East Carolina. Though we are busy, we still find time for the rec- reation which we need. For our materials for development also in- cluded dances, parties, dates, weekends. All these are part of our memories of four years at E. C. C.



From an enrollment of 920 in 1945 to 2496 in 1955. That is one measure of our growth. Another is physical plant; a spacious library, an ultra-modern student union, new dormitories under construction, and other buildings in the planning stage. And every year brings the addition of many new staff members. It is the students' responsibility to keep things moving ahead - to build through intelligent work and cooperation a finer East Carolina - This is our challenge in the years ahead.

Our President...



Dear Students:

Your having been with us for four years demonstrates the fact that you came with a purpose and you will soon realize your objective. Upon your generation rests a great responsibility to uphold the Christian, democratic way of life we cherish and to promugate its principles in all your endeavors. You are fortunate to have been born in America and to have the opportunity to get a liberal education. The extent to which that education will be of benefit depends entirely on you. You are richer in education and experience because of your four years in college and you therefore, owe a greater debt to the world; you should exert every effort to see that your environment is made better because of your presence.

Strive to succeed in your chosen work, but in all things exemplify the Golden Rule in practice. There is great need for leadership to bring peace out of chaos and joy out of sorrow; your Alma Mater expects you to assume a place of leadeiship. Be assured it will always be interested in your suc- cess and ready to help you in any way possible.

Fraternally yours,

The Dean of Students, one of the most important positions on the College campus is held by Dean Leo W. Jenkins. This office handles the social calen- dar, class excuses and is also the major link between class- room and extracurricular activ- ities.




In addition to being Dean of Men, Dr. Clinton R. Prewett is also Director of Student Per- sonnel. His office directs dorm- itory accommodations for men, part-time employment and with- drawals for male students. Dr. Prewett is also a willing per- sonal consultant for any student problem.


The office which is primarily concerned with the affairs of our women students is under the leadership of Miss Ruth A. White. Dean White's office has charge of all housing for women students. Through this office the fresh- man women are helped in bridging the gap be- tween high school and college life.

Miss Ruth Garner, Counselor for Fleming Hall; Miss Nancy Wilmore, Jarvis Hall Coun- selor; Mrs. Helen A. Snyder, Counselor for resi- dents of Cotten Hall; Miss Hazel Clarke, Fresh- man Advisor; Mrs. Estella A. Striplin, Wilson Hall Counselor and Miss Kathleen Venters, Dormitory Housekeeper; all make up Miss White's highly efficient staff.







DR. J. L. OPPELT Director of Placement Bureau



During our Senior year we begin to think about where we can apply this knowledge we've acquired. This problem is handled by Dr. J. L. Oppelt, our Placement Bureau Director.


To the high schools in our own and surrounding states, the merits of our excellent college are carried by Dr. Ed J. Carter, Director of Field Service.


The job of managing the College funds is handled by our Treasurer and Business Manager of the College, Mr. F. D. Duncan. His office is comparable, in efficiency, to that of the F. B. I.


We owe our thanks to Dr. Phillips for keeping our class schedules straight and getting out grades. His job as Registrar of the College keeps him busy long after office hours.

EXECUTIVE SECRETARY of Alumni Association, James W Butler, sits at his desk in the recently re-decorated Alumni Building. Mr. Butler is reponsible for directing alumni relations and coordinating activities.

These three student helpers of the alumni office are working with the cards which contain names and addresses of former students. With the help of these cards the association attempts to keep a finger on all its alumni scattered all over the world.

Below is Mrs. Susie Webb, Secretary to Mr. Butler and cheerful Receptionist of the Alumni Association.

Arranging the cards are Helen Bland Matthews and Margaret Ged- die, while Frank Dees files them.

Wahl-Coates Laboratory School, colloquially known as the training school, is under the guidance of Miss Frances Wahl. The student body is made up of Greenville boys and girls in grades one through eight. It is considered a part of the college since all of the students in Primary and Grammar Grade Education do their practice teaching here.

Ruth Lassiter records the ideas of Joel Farrar, Mary Ann Jones, Peggy Edwards and Charles White as they discuss plans for the forthcoming Junior-Senior. But, as yet - no brainstorms.

Inter - Religious Council

Composed of representatives from all religious groups on the campus and advised by the East Carolina Director of Religious Activities, the Inter-Religious Council di- rects the spiritual growth and development of our college. The main responsibility of the Council is the coordination and en- couragement of East Carolina religious activities. Heading the list of its programs is Spiritual Emphasis Week. At this time students pause briefly to focus their tention on strengthening spiritual values and religious ties.


The Wesley Foundation unites the Methodists of East Carolina in recreation and spiritual brotherhood.


The Baptist Student Union serves those who are of the Baptist Faith and provides them with fellowship and inspiration.


At the Westminster Fellowship, Presbyterian students find encourage- ment and oneness of faith to complete an im- portant part of their education.


The Disciples Student Fellowship brings to- gether students of the Christian Church for meditation and spiritual emphasis.


The Free Will Baptist Fellowship meets every Monday evening at the parsonage for an inspir- ing speech and a social hour.


East Carolina Episco- palians attend the Can- terbury Club every Sun- day night for a supper and devotional message.


Those of the Catholic Faith make up the East Carolina Catholic Club. Father Gable advises the group as they study about their faith.


The Holiness Fellow- ship stimulates Christian idvancement and pro- vides the Holiness stu- dent with an opportun- ty to strengthen relig- ,ous bonds while they jre at East Carolina.



President of Music Club


An outstanding organization in an outstanding field at East Carolina is the Music Club. Made up primarily of music majors its members are continually striving to help others appreciate good music as much as they do.

East Carolina Marching Band


reading from left, Peggy Yause, Roda Faye Peel, William Speight (Drum Major), Suzanne Jenkins, and Betty Jean Davenport


The Collegians are widely known throughout this state for their fine instru- mental performances. Their director is Charlie Kluttz.


Special selections from the Women's Chorus at the annual Christ- mas assembly drew applause from the entire student body. This was only one of the year's highlights for this group of talented students directed by Dan E. Vornholt.


Membership in the College Singers is an honor because only select voices are allowed to participate. Directed by Dan E. Vornholt, they have fur- nished music for many occasions throughout the year.


Highlights for the Col- lege Choir include a spring tour of parts of North Car- olina and a spring concert. All who hear this group are filled with words of praise for their perform- ances. They are directed by Dr. Elwood Keister.


Male students blend their voices to produce beautiful music for various occasions at East Carolina. This year the Men's Chorus was directed by Paul Hickfang, a talented new member of the music faculty. The Men's Chorus is one of the prides of the East Carolina Music department.

East Carolina Concert Band


Director of the Marching Band and the Concert Band


Many students recall with pleasure the lawn concerts presented by the Concert Band. An- other highlight is the annual spring concert. This year the band has also presented some pro- grams in nearby high schools.

East Carolina Orchestra


Head of Music Department, Conductor


In addition to students, the Orchestra is composed of faculty members and other people of the community. In the spring this group presents a children's concert, and young students from all nearby schools pour in to hear it. Much of the music at graduation is furnished by the Orchestra. East Carolina College furnishes most of the equipment for the orchestra. The Orchestra is a member of the American Symphony League.

Great Ideas Develop...55 Buccaneer Includes New Color Pages


At this writing the Buccaneer is nearly finished. A few picture captions must still be written, and then it can be sent to the printer. The 1955 Buccaneer staff has endeavored to record in picture and word the activities and accomplishments of the myriad departments, groups, and sections of campus life.

Writing and picture taking started last fall, but then only sporadically. Thoughts seemed more im- portant than deeds. If the Buccaneer had a guiding spirit it was the spirit of procrastination. Most things completed were done out of necessity, at the last moment, with great urgency; hence great decisions seemed to invite procrastination.

At times the staff was woefully shorthanded. Sometimes it was next to impossible to gather correct information from organizations. However by checking and rechecking with different groups we have ac- cumulated the information and have written, proofed, and published the information.

BUSINESS MANAGER, Mildred Reynolds, held the business end of the Buccaneer in her hands. Her deadlines were end of the month affairs when the bills came in.

THE YEARBOOK STAFF crams itself into the staff office for a moment of relaxation during the last week. All have a bottle coke.

The 1955 East Carolinian

The East Carolinian, the campus newspaper, is the students weekly guide to daily campus life. The news- paper is edited, written, and published by students of East Carolina College. The East Carolinian staff faithfully records the ups and downs of the college activity as they see them and they have kept as their aim "to build a bigger and better East Carolina."

Through the years the East Carolinian has ranked high with other college weeklies in the state and over the nation. This year will be no exception for not only have the staff met a deadline each week but they have added a new darkroom, sponsored two talent shows, and held short classes on the essentials of reporting.

The stories have been written and the used type dis- carded, but the years to come remain a challenge to future East Carolinian staffs.

THE EDITOR, Faye O'Neal had her own special problems. She had to worry about writing editorials about all the things that worried the administration.

Student Life


The Y. M. C. A. cabinet, from left to right; Gene Lanier, Roy Askew, "Toppy" Hayes, Jim Winstead, Boyd Webb, and Lemuel Cox plan the program for their week of Vesper Service.

The members of the Young Men's Christian Asso- ciation take part in Spiritual Emphasis Week and undertake other projects in the service of God. The campus YMCA works with the parent organization in seeking to reach students who are not Christians and to help them to discover that the way of Christ is the only way to live an effective and satisfying life. One of the regular activities of the YMCA Pro- gram is the Thursday evening Vesper Service.

The cabinet meetings are not always quite so formal as this dormitory picture of the members proves. Shown from left to right are: Gary Scarboro, Lemuel Cox, Charlie Bedford, Gene Lanier and Toppy Hayes.


Anyone who will support the YWCA and its prin- ciples may become a member. Its purpose states: "We unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God." The "Y" has become a symbol of worship, recreation, and good fun for all who wish to participate. Special holiday services, as well as the regular Vesper Services, which the YWCA joins with the YMCA is sponsoring, have become traditions on campus.

Present at this meeting of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet members are: Seated, Grey Ward, Jo Ann Lee, Shirley Hargrove, Erleen Lilley, Eugene Hayman and Neel Dupree. While standing, we have Jane Midyette, Carolyn Moore, Evelyn Sherman, and Betty Jo Carroll.

One of the highlights of each Spring quarter is the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. retreat at one of the near-by beaches.

The Future Business Leaders of America was organized for the purpose of fostering interest in the business occupation and in business teaching, to acquaint the students of the business edu- cation department with one an- other, and to work together for the mutual interest and benefits of its members and of the busi- ness education department as a whole.

The purpose of the club is to stimulate in the students an interest in better government and to encourage more active participation in politics.


Forums, discussions, talks, and commentaries on world affairs all go into the planning of the program for the International Relations Club. Students as well as out-of-town guests are par- ticipants in the club's monthly sessions. It is the only organization on campus that devotes its time exclusively to the study of na- tional and international problems.


The Young Republicans Club takes an active part in the sup- port of the Republican party. The political minded students of the club are doing all they can to stimulate more interest in better government here on our campus. The club holds monthly meeting and brings to the students interesting speakers from the political world.


The Math Club meeting gives its members an op- portunity to share mutual interests and compare ideas on mathematics. Fea- tures of club programs are monthly puzzles, planned entertainment, and guest speakers all of which help to stress the vital import- ance of mathematics in the everyday life.


The members of the Association for Child- hood Education agree to work together to in- crease professional knowledge, to promote a more general understanding of the value of early childhood education, and to co-operate with all who work for the betterment of early childhood education. All students interested in the welfare of children are invited to become a member of the A.C.E.

A group of A. C. E. members, along with the advisors, discuss the program for next month's meeting.


The purpose of the East Carolina Playhouse is to encourage dramatic arts at East Carolina College and to give students of the college an opportunity to participate in dramatic production of educational and cultural work. The, Playhouse has as its primary belief that dramatics should and does have a part in the educa- tional system for the college students.


The Library Club of East Carolina College, organized in the Fall of '53, is made up of library assistants, however, all interested persons may use this organization as a means of fellowship and also benefit from the interesting speeches on library work. The club is designed to help the students interested in the library science field in general, to have a broader understanding of this field.


The purpose of East Carolina College's Stu- dent Science Club is to promote a broader in- terest in scientific fields, to develop greater knowledge of the world and to bring together those students interested in science.


The Industrial Arts students with their thir- teen charter members and their instructors, Bing and Powell, formed the Industrial Arts Club in the Fall Quarter of 1949.

The Circle K Club, an outstanding organ- ization for men at East Carolina, is sponsored by the Greenville Kiwanis Club and is one of the leading Circle K Clubs in the country. Members are chosen for their above average leadership, scholarship, and citizenship. The club assists the Kiwanis Club in its annual production and helps the Junior Woman's Club sell bread for the Watson Memorial Fund.


The English Club, the oldest departmental club on campus, celebrated its thirtieth anni- versary this year. It was organized for the pur- pose of "furthering interest in good literature" and to give English majors and minors a chance for fun and fellowship together.


The Home Economics Club of East Carolina, an affiliate of the North Carolina Home Economics Association and the American Home Economics Association, has the same purpose as these two clubs. It places special emphas is upon the promotion of a greater interest in the field of Home Economics, international fellowship, and the provision of means by which stu- dents may develop in leadership and initiative.

The Betty Lamp, pictured in the inset and placed on the table during each Installation Ser- vice is the symbol of Home Economic Departments everywhere.


The Robert H. Wright chapter of the Future Teachers of America endeavors to promote interest in the teaching profession and to acquaint young people with the history, ethics and programs of the North Carolina Education Association and the National Education Associa- tion..

A Salute To The Air Force R.O.T.C.



East Carolina College has reason .to be proud of its Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps. Since 1948, the men students of East Carolina have had the opportunity to receive a commission in the Reserve Officers Training Corps while ob- taining a college degree.

For the first two years of the four year course, the cadets are taught the elements of warfare and drill procedure. They also have an opportunity to fly with members of the staff.

To go into the advanced course, the cadets must pass a pilot or observer aptitude test and a physical examination. While in the advanced course they take positions of leadership on the drill field.

During the third year, they go to summer camp at various bases located in the United States and get an inside look at the Air Force life of which they will become a part.

Just prior to graduation the cadets who have completed the Reserve Officers Training program successfully receive their commission in the Air Force.

This year the senior cadets plan the drill procedure. They have a forum each Friday and talk over the problems that have come up during the week.

Last, But Certainly Not Least



No renewal of 1953's North State Conference football crown was in order for East Carolina during 1954 but the Pirates nevertheless acquitted themselves well against all opposition.

The overall record for the year showed five wins, four losses, and one tie. Conference triumphs came over Lenoir Rhyne, 7 - 6, Catawba, 26 - 7, and West- ern Carolina, 27 - 13. League losses were at the hands of Elon, 20 - 6, and Appalachian, 13 - 7.

Against outside opposition the Pirates recorded wins over Norfolk Navy, 21-0, and Stetson, 26 - 7. They lost to West Chester, 6-4, to Tampa, 27-14, and were tied, 6 - 6, bv East Tennessee.

Tackle Willie Holland, a senior and co-cap- tain of the Pirate team, distinguished himself by being named to three honorary post-season elevens.

Holland was chosen on the All-North State Conference squad, named to the All-State team of the Greensboro Daily News and, along with fullback Claude King, received honorable men- tion rating on the Little Ail-American squad.

The season of 1954 had its tips and downs as far as the Pirates were concerned and though their record was disappointing in comparison with the proceeding year, they still have much to remember.

Perhaps the turning point of the year came before the season even opened when Dick Cherry, a Little All- Ameri- can in 1953 as a sophomore quarterback, suffered a broken foot that sidelined him for the season.

But even with that the season had its merits with Boyd Webb calling signals expertly and backs Claude King, Emo Boado, and co-captain Toppy Hayes ripping the line. Up front in the forewall Larry Bhodes and J. D. Bradford were holding down the ends while Willie Holland and George Tucker took care of the tackle posts. Guards David Lee and Don Burton, considered by many to be the most underrated player in the state, flanked aggressive center Lou Hallow.

Freshman footballers at East Carolina during 1954 did not have a regular sched- ule but got plenty of workouts in competi- tion with the varsity gridders.

Approximately 30 players from all sec- tions of North Carolina and Virginia took daily workouts under the eyes of Head Coach Jack Boone and assistants Jim Mal- lory and Earl Smith.

Many of these players should be mov- ing up to varsity assignments this fall to fill posts vacated by graduating seniors.

Coach Jack Boone and Gary Mattocks talk things over dur- ing the half.

The loss of senior stars Bobby Hodges and Charlie Huffman left the East Carolina College Pirates minus both height and experience as the 1954-55 basketball season opened.

But even with the loss of these outstanding players Coach Howard Porter found some solace in three re- turning starters, guards J. C. Thomas, captain Cecil Heath, and forward Don Harris. To these, Porter added a pair of freshmen, center Guy Mendenhall, and Nick Nichols.

Early season wins recorded by the Pirates included triumphs over Guilford, Lenoir Bhyne, Appalachian, and Catawba in the conference and highly rated Bel- mont Abbey, Erskine and Presbyterian in non-league play.

That the Pirates were in for a rough time as far as defending the league title they won the preceeding season was visible early when Elon upset the Bucs on the Christian court. Soon after East Carolina dropped its second loop game and found themselves battling to stay in the race.

Pressure was on the Pirates from the opening game of the 1954-55 season as they sought to defend the record that was hung up in the spring of 1954.

That year the Pirates walked off with the Conference title, won the NAIA district playoff and compiled the sixth best overall record of any basketball team in the United States.

Coach Howard Porter showed evi- dence of building for the future in his composition of the 1954-55 Pirate squad. Among the newcomers who should help the Bucs next year and after are Freddie James, Waddell Solomon, Marion Hales, Maurice Everett and Jerry Bosquet.

A so-so baseball season in 1954 found East Carolina finishing in second place in the Eastern Division of the North State Conference behind Elon's Christians.

East Carolina opened its season by dropping two con- tests with Wake Forest's Demon Deacons. Other com- petition met by the Pirates exclusive of games with league teams included Montclair, (N. J.) Teachers.

While the Pirates' efforts weren't entirely successful during the baseball season, the Buccaneers nevertheless came up with some freshmen players who played excellent ball. Outfielder Dave Nance collected some timely hits while playing well defensively. Pitcher Mack Cherry, a slender righthander, displayed the poise of a veteran.

Among the veterans who shone were second baseman Cecil Heath, thirdsacker Charlie Cherry, firstbaseman W. C. Sanderson, and pitchers Jim Byrd and Jim Piner. Unfortunately, however, Sanderson, Byrd and Piner com- pleted their play in '54, and Coach Jim Mallory was faced with the difficult job of finding replacements for the 1955

Spring of 1954 saw the addition of a new sport to East Carolina's intercollegiate athletic program. For the first time since the founding of the school the Pirates competed in track and field events and capped their one-meet season by winning the North State Conference championship.

Leon Ellis, an East Carolina alumnus doing postgrad- uate work here, coached the team. The Pirates could schedule only one meet prior to the conference finals at High Point but in that outing East Carolina stunned N. C. State's Wolfpack, 58-55, at Raleigh.

At High Point, where the competition for the confer- ence title was held, East Carolina easily outdistanced five other league teams to gain the championship. No records were smashed by the Buccaneers in winning the league title, but Bobby Perry, a freshman ace from Greenville, tied the conference mark for the 100 - yard dash with a winning time of 9.9 seconds.

Plans for 1955 called for a larger schedule, and hopes for another successful season were bright with the return of eight men from the 1954 squad.


FIRST ROW: Toppy Hayes, Garland Tuton, Emo Roado, Coach, Leon Ellis, O'Brien Edwards, Eddie Hurst . . . SECOND ROW: Jack Pickett, Milton Collier, Pete Hill, Bobby Perry, David Lee, Tommy Thompson, Hob Chambers, Hill Cain, Hen Wolverton, and Willard Roberts.

At the Conference meet at High Point East Carolina poured on the steam to outdistance Lenoir Rhyne's de- fending champions. Final score showed East Carolina 48; Lenoir Rhyne, 34; Elon, 29%; Guilford, 23%; High Point, 22; and Western Carolina, 8.

East Carolina's Golfers Rolled To Their Sixth North State Conference Title in Seven Years

The year 1954 found East Carolina's golfers rolling to their sixth North State Conference title in seven years as the Pirates compiled an unbeaten league slate.

In addition to capturing the team title, Claude King took the individual championship by defeating Don Smith, of Elon, in an 18-hole playoff over the Starmont Forest Country Club course at Greensboro. Dave Mar- tin, of East Carolina, finished third in the individual standings.

The winning team score for the Pirates was Elon, which finished second, had a 688, while Appa- lachian and High Point, the other two teams entered, tied for third with identical scores of 691.

East Carolina College's tennis team wound up on the minus side of the ledger during 1954, compiling an overall record of 3 - 6 and a conference mark of 3 - 2.

At the conference tourney, however, the Pirates salvaged some honors when Paul Cameron and Bob Williams took the doubles championship. Cameron and Williams turned back Shrader and Borjes, 6-2, and 6-1, and then whipped Frazier and Eller, of the champion High Point squad, 7-5, 7-5.

The winter of 1954-55 found East Carolina enjoying another new sport. For the first time in the history of the school a swimming team was formally organized and meets were scheduled with squads from both the Atlantic Coast and Southern Conferences.

Since no other North State Conference school has a swimming team, the Pirates were forced to take on a ter- rific schedule with the net result that, from a scoring stand- point, the season was far from successful.

All indications, however, point to a better record next year as the East Carolina swimmers take full advantage of their new pool and their new coach, Ray Martinez.

This book just could not be. completed without an expression of appreciation and a hearty vote of thanks to all the people who have made the preceeding pages possible.

First of all, I want to thank this exceptional staff which came through so wonderfully. They really, along with friends whom they could draft, poured in more work in such a short time when the deadline was so near than one could possibly expect. Thanks again, Folks.

To Lee Blackwell, may I say that your patience is unequalled, except by Job. Working with a rookie editor on a new style of printing brought about undreamed-of complications. To you and Frank Rosen- berg of Paragon Press, who made me feel that the Buccaneer was as much your book as mine - many thanks.

This year, as in many years past, our individual portraits for the Class Sections and Fraternities are the product of Smith Studio in Raleigh. ThanT<s to Fay Smith, for we could have never met the deadline had it not been for your cooperation. We shall long remember it - and the pictures were tops.

To C. L. Perkins my thanks for the outstanding group pictures. It was a long, tough, and seemingly never-ending process, but the pictures turned out fine, C. L., thanks.

I'm sure our Editorial Advisor, Dr. James Poindexter must have felt as though he were taking on quite a few extra classes with themes assigned to all of them with all the proof-reading he has asked to do. My sincerest thanks to you, Dr. Poindexter, for all the time and interest you have put into the Buc- caneer.

Of course, in the Spring when it turns contract-signing time, right there ready to help us was Dr. John O. Reynolds, Financial Advisor. His eye was always on our progress, he would let things run at their own rate. But, when needed, he was right there with the correct answer.

Dr. Clinton Prewett, Director of Student Personnel has certainly lived up to the meaning of his title for me. He seemed never too busy to listen to all my problems and was truly a friend to the entire staff.

My thanks also to those concerns which advertised in our book. In short, thanks to each and every one of you who have helped us in the production of the Buccaneer. I wish there were room to name each of you. You have all gone far out of your way to help us and this note of verbal thanks is only a small bit of what the staff really feels.

And now, Lannie, to you I turn over my desk, typewriter, and office key. All my best wishes and luck in making the 1956 Buccaneer the best ever.

J. K.
