Date: 1924 | Identifier: 50-01-1924
1924 Tecoan, yearbook of East Carolina Teachers College. The Tecoan, the first yearbook published by the students of East Carolina Teachers College, debuted in 1923. The name of the yearbook changed to the Buccaneer in 1953. The Buccaneer was published until 1990, with a two year suspension in publication from 1976-1978. more...

The Tecoan

Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-four

Volume Two

Published by the Students of East Carolina Teachers College Greenville N. C.

In presenting the second volume of The Tecoan, the students of East Carolina Teachers College offer no apologies for the contents of the book; it is but a brief chronicle of the everyday events and scenes of our college life. Had life at Teachers College been different, the book would have been different. Every effort has been put forth to give a picture of conditions as they actually existed during the school year 1923-'24; it is the only pictorial record of the year's events, therefore, we believe it will be valuable for future reference.

The book's imperfect. Yet midst mirth and jest There may be some of good. It is our best."

The editors wish to thank the students, the members of the faculty, and the officers for their help and friendly suggestions in the publication of The Tecoan; such a spirit of cooperation in our college is worth many times the cost of this volume.

College Song

(Tune: Follow The Gleam)

Down East in our great old State

There's a college that we love best.

Emblazoned with Truth it lives

And will always withstand each test.

Chorus : Teachers College, we're boosting you.

To Service you're true, all the years through.

Teachers College, whose standards unfurl And give guidance to all the world.

Our college with lofty aims Who unselfishly gives her all.

To her we'll be loyal, true. And will answer her every call.

As days gently pass away And our college its standards raise.

We fonder and prouder grow.

Alma Mater fore'er we praise.

Second Chorus: Alma Mater, Symbol of Right, Giving to all the best of your light

Alma Mater, to each you're a friend And we'll stick by you 'til the end.

The Password

TODAY in most Carolina schools may be found East Carolina Teachers College Alumnae. Especially is this true of the central and eastern sections. Let a new Alumna enter a school and she is at once given the right hand of fellowship by the old girls. There is a peculiar bond existing among all graduates. It seems that this key to fellowship is in being "An E. 0. T. C. Alumna."

Little groups of Alumnae have come together in many places in the State and organized county chapters of the Alumnae Association. The year 1920 found only two of these branch organizations. Edgecombe and Pitt. This year will find many among them; Wake, Lenoir, Halifax, Franklin, Granville, New Hanover, Forsythe, Wilson, Pasquotank, Beaufort, Mecklenburg, and Gaston.

Now, for a really good time, attend one of these group meetings. If you can get a word in cross-wise you are lucky. We all want to talk at once. There is so much to say. Listen with me for a minute to the chatter: "Say, have you heard about the change at E. C. T. C? Isn't it grand? Don't we feel swell?" Of a different nature,

but still part of it all, you may hear: "Did you know that was married?

When? To whom? There's hope for us all then, isn't there? Heavens, did you hear

that has bobbed her hair? What would Mrs. B. say? Well, I think

she looks wonderful. I believe I shall bob mine.' And thus it goes until the matter of transacting business is almost an impossibility. There are no "Old Maid School Marms" here, I can assure you of that. We have all drunk at the fountain of youth and are enjoying school days once more.

The big culminating event of the year for every Alumna is Commencement at E. C. T. C. When we gather there, we hear from the many girls who have been scattered.

We see the changes and improvements. We make these changes a part of the school we attended.

Thus we grow and keep in touch with our college

Our relationship is renewed.

This year with a new Alumnae Hall in store for us, Commencement is a time looked forward to with eager anticipations

After all, the Alumnae Associationwith its chapters are:Hands, joined in tho't and aim are we. Soon, stretching from Hatterass to Cherokee. Service, Loyalty. Fellowship. These three are all pulling for ECTC.

"There is a kind of character in tin/ life That fo the observer doth thy history Fully unfold."

Four years ago, my classmates-and it seems as yesterday-we first entered dear old ECTTS. Vivid is the memory of that first trip to Greenville Ah! I can hear the porter, now exclaiming, "Freight wreck ahead, two hour wait. Suddenly the train stopped in what seemed to us the Great Dismal Swamp, for we could see nothing but Torn years ago, je memory of that first trip to Green- ville. Ah! I can hear the porter, now, exclaiming, "Freight wreek ahead, two hours wait !" Suddenly the train stopped in what seemed to us the Dismal Swamp, for we could see nothing through the slow drizzle of rain hut a net work of briers and bushes standing knee deep in mud. How should we spend that two hours was our first thought, but shortly we were eomforted by a group of old girls who assured us that they had learned from the eonduetor that the track was completely torn to pieces for several miles, and that we couldn't possibly leave before the next morning. Eagerly did we drink the message of these kind friends, and realizing that it was a God given privilege of a "Newish" to yield to any emotional feelings, whether it brought tears from the eyes or lament from the tongue, we played the part of a "Newish" and we played it well. After waiting about three hours we learned that there was a train waiting for us on the other side of the wreck, and that by walking around the wreck and getting on the train we would really get to Greenville that night. This brought a thrill of joy which turned our tears to smiles. So, up we got, took our suitcases, umbrellas and vari- ous boxes in hand and started through rain, mud, briers and bushes to find the train that was waiting for us. Walking was a terrible task, our suitcases grew heavier and heavier, the mud made a desparate effort to pull off our shoes, the briers insisted on having us wear drop stitched hose, the bushes and the wind endeavored to rob us of our umbrellas. After passing through this ordeal we got on the train and found ourselves in Greenville about eleven o'clock.

Homesick and lonely were we that first week. But with the passing of time we lost that feeling of dismay that first possessed us, and, in its place, found some- thing of indefinable sweetness and strength, a something that transcends every- thing in the heart of a school girl; a something that comprises in two words all the grandest qualities, all the noblest emotions ; valor and honor, love and loyalty. Our first year was filled with the many requirements of the "C" course or First Year Normal. We took an active part in all phases of school activities, but our

every thought and ambition was to learn all the pedagogy and psychology needed to fit us for practice teaching the next year.

Vacation passes quickly and in September we returned to be "D's", or Seniors, we thought. For as you have noticed we had spent our first year in the East Caro- lina Teachers Training School which only offered a two-year ISTormal Course. Shortly after our arrival we learned that our President had succeeded in getting our State Legislature to change our school from a training school to an A College. Thus we learned that we were no longer Seniors of E. C. T. T. S., but Sophomores in East Carolina Teachers College. What a shock to be changed from a senior to a sophomore ! But we were glad enough to make the change. Many were we in number and hard was the fight which made our second year a success. June found our practice teaching passed and we were presented our diplomas from the Xormal Course.

There was little satisfaction in stopping the job half finished, so we resolved to finish it. Our Junior year was crowded with hardships. I've felt at times that we had made the greatest mistake of our lives by attempting to take college work, for there seemed to be no place for us. We had a small number and only two wanted to specialize in the same subject, so the courses we wanted could not be offered. After working earnestly for three weeks we were able to fill our schedule with courses enough to give the required number of points, thus it seemed that fate forced us to do one term of work for credits, chiefly. Realizing that any transi- tion period works a hardship on all parties concerned, we resolved to use its difii- culties as a means of gaining strength. With this determination we went to work and made the year a success in spite of the difficulties.

All too soon came the end of our Junior Year. Victory perched upon our schol- astic banners and we were Seniors.

Many of the difficulties which confronted us our Junior Year presented them- selves when we became Seniors. But thanks to Mr. Austin who gave us a place on the college schedule, our wants were supplied as nearly as possible. After finding that we could get the required work for graduation, we organized the first Senior Class in the history of the College. We have entered heartily into the spirit of our College, though our small number has prevented us from taking the active part desired. We joined the Juniors and gave the College its first play by a college class.

Out of our seven members we have the Chief Marshal, Vice-President of the Y. W. C. A., Editor-in-Chief of the Teco.^n and the Student Government President.

[Page Forty-four]

We have felt the hardships of the transition period of our College more keenly, perhaps, than our underclassmen. Our future will probably suffer from the lack of some course we might have had, had circumstances permitted, but even then we feel that we have been fortunate in having been students in ECTC at this particular time. It has given us an appreciation of its growth and development that will be impossible for other students to have.

The year has come to an end, and with it our career at ECTC. It is with sadness we part from one another and from our dear old Alma Mater, but never will we depart from its ideals. With its motto, "To Serve" ever before us we hope to live up to every ideal involved therein. We will ever be able to say:

And with joy that is almost pain My heart goes back to wander there, And among the dream of days that were I find my lost youth again."

A. Woodward, '24

To our Mascot

Mascot, we've worked and toiledto reach The goal we have attained, but much we hope that our work has not been in vain.

Not nearly is our work complete, In fact, its just begun, on further up are the peaks Which must be reached and won

As we climb the trails of Life, We wish you'd go along To cheer us with your laughter gay And with a merry song

Though days be long and tasks be rough O'er paths we've never trod, With thoughts of your dear smiling face The way won't be so hard A. H. F. , '24

Ten years! Could it be possible that so many years had passed since last I beheld my dear old Alma Mater, and the seven girls , who that day in 1924, received their long toiled for "Sheepskin"?

Yes ten years had gone by since that memorable day, and as I had spent most of that time in India as a student volunteer worker, I was in total ignorance of the h College and of the whereabouts of my classmates.

At last I was returning to the scene of my college life! It was the Commence- ment of the Class of 1934 that I was going to. The wonderful improvements which we had heard talked of so much had been made. We now ranked as second best Teachers College in the United States. I was assured that I would hear from, if not see, my classmates.

T found on my arrival that I was not at the dingy Norfolk Southern Station with whiCH I was so familiar. Where COULD I be but in the beautiful E. C. T. C. Station which had been constructed just behind the stately Campus building!

I was shown to this latter named! building by a portly gentleman of color, who said that the President would be in presently.

As I entered the spacious parlor, my attention was drawn to a copy of the college paper, which was issued daily. Eagerly scanning the paper I found this bit of good news :

Expected on the next train ! Pres. Annie Howard Felton of The New York Times.

Annie Howard had at last put her limitless knowledge of English wheRE it would be seen by millions, and had won for herself the honor of being orator at a Commencement at her Alma Mater!

Alice Pope, teacher of European History at Yale University arrived last night and will give a lecture on "The Advancement of Europe in the past Ten Years."

Just then I was disturbed by a violent shake on the shoulders. Looking around, I beheld Leah Cooke, who was still talking as usual. "Say, Clara, when do you think Mary Whitehurst will be here? You know she is teaching Public School Music in the Boston City Schools. She received her musical education under Mr. Potter."

After several attempts to speak, I finally asked, "Leah, what are you doing now?" She answered rather plaintively, "I can't stop talking so I am now the Campaign Manager for the Democratic Nominee for President."

Anxious to know where Ruth Barbee and Augusta Woodward were, I asked Leah if in her travels she had seen them. Leah stopped talking for a few minutes to think. Then she said, "While I was in Hollywood last summer, I saw Ruth Barbee. She made such a fine lawyer in our Senior Play that she was made official lawyer for all movie divorce cases. But she is coming to Commencement."

"Where is Augusta ?""

Before she could answer, the door opened and a very striking blonde came into the room, followed by three distinguished looking ladies. The leader of the group I recognized to be our former Student Government President, Augusta Woodward. I asked her what she was doing and she replied, "Mr. Wright is on leave of absence for two years in Europe. The Board asked me to fill his place while he is away."

With the entrance of Augusta the circle of 24 was complete; we had all arrived for Commencement at our dear old Alma Mater.

And off we start with a bouyant heart

And with never a thought of care.

Class Poem

Dear Fellow Travelers, our journey is ended which was begun two years ago. The road ahead looks long and rugged. And our progress oh so slow.

But our brains were high and noble And we buckled to the task

As we knew though hard the labor Bright would be the goal at last. We were faced with many trials. But we smiled and did our best; And our feet were always guided

By the far off goal Success. And while here we've caught a vision That in us shall never die But its rays uill shine more brightly Through the years that hasten by.

So we've worked and toiled together In these dear old college halls. And there's just a touch of sadness As we leave, Though duty calls. And we know as years move onward Though we've roamed the wide world o'er We'll look back with sweetest memories On the Class of '24,.

Who relished in a joke and rejoiced in a bun; Rare compound of oddity, frolic and fun.

Grace is one our most original girls. Amerry companion, and a loyal friend. She is blessed with a happy nature and her dimples are constantly peeping out in her joyous smile When we have the blues we run to Grace or "or

Grace Barn Lewiston NC

Laugh and the world laughs with you

Happy go lucky girl. Always laughing.When sad and blue go to her room

and you'll laugh too. One might think her very dignified by only seeing her in the classroom but that is just the face she wears while obtaining knowledge. When she sees a piano she is always ready to play.What is it she cannot do?

The class of 24 wishes her much success in the future.

Lina Bailey Roxboro N. C.

What are little girls made of?

Sugar and Spice and everything nice

Bonnie Boswell Black Creek NC

As the spring's soft call brings forth the birdlings song, so doth her strains of sweet music make the heart rejoice.

Bonn is the musician of the class, and we are very proud of her talent. She plans to teach school, but sometimes we wonder!

And we wonder if she really does not wonder about it herself at times! Why teach, when at any time she may possess a certain-?

Gladys Bateman Columbia NC

A smile for all, a greeting glad, an amiable jolly way she had.

Gladys has been an invaluable asset to the college as well as to her class-being sent as a delegate to Blue Ridge from our YWCA, OF WHICH SHE IS PRESIDENT, AND HAVING REPRESENTED OUR student body

at the student volunteer convention held in Indianapolis. Broadmindedness and personality supplemented by her extensive correspondence

with Carolina, Wadesboro, and Baltimore, makes her one of the most popular at ECTC.

Grace Bishop Durham, NC

As a perfect type of womanhood, She stands among the best

Grace or GB as we know her, is a girl whom everyone can depend on for anything that needs to be done. We know she can teach, for what is there about Eskimos that she doesn't know?

Class Song

Tune of "Vive L' Amour

Come classmates, and join now in joy with a song, To Dear Old '24., The best of good cheer as we're passing along, Dear Class of '24,


Here's to you, honor and love evermore, Sweet memories will come when the day is o'er, Of faces we love and will never forget, In our calss of '24, The sweetest memories in years we'll recall, Dear Class of '24, In fancy we'll roam once again in this hall, Our Class of '24, We hope that the future will bring each success, In our Class of'24, We hold high her standards, the noblest and the best, Dear Class of '24

Class History '24

The class of '24 wishes to relate in a very crude way just a few of its most important dates, from babyhood A's-Angels to womanhood as d's years.On September 25, 1920, there were scattered among the student body of East Carolina Teachers College Teachers Training School, 24 of the most timid little creaturesyou ever saw. At first these 24 timidities were not congenial with the old girls at all, but they soon discovered that the old girls were human rather than superhuman. After a period of six weeks we organized ourselves carefully and thoughtfully under the leadership of that brave and noble character, Leona Johnson, who was made the first president of the class of '24. Our noble leader made a great successof whatever she attempted no matter how hard the task, and with her wonderful voice could quiet the chattering of the whole student body. We appeared for the first two times before the school by rendering a most interesting chapel and YWCA program., On May 7th, we did our part in making May Day a success. On May 11th, we entertained our sister class, the C's. , On June 7th, we witnessed for the first time the presentation of diplomas to the graduating class and longed for the day to come when we would recieve so precious a treasure., June 8th, vacation-a trip to dreamland. On September 26, 1921, we returned to the garden spot of the world, which was now ECTC. This year Lina Stevens acted as guardian angel over 34 B'S.wE WERE NOT TIMID THIS YEAR FOR THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A TIMID b-E-E, and we never fell short of being the class for we were the bravest B'S ECTC ever had ever possessed. On December 6, 1921, there came a very sad event into our lives; one of our most loyal members, Virgie Mitchell, answered the great voice from above, Come forth., On May 6th, we led YWCA services., On May11th, we entertained our sister class the D's., On June 5th, we we presented a beautiful lantern drill in honor of the graduating class, June 8th Vacation, which was all too short. Swiftly the days passed bringing again September, the beginning of another school year. On September 27, 1922, we were more than glad to know that aproximetely 280 pupils had registered as members of our class.

This year we felt more keenly our responsibility, for, naturally we were looked up to as leaders, as we were the great big C's.,Marion Newby, nutural born leader, sucsessfully pilot ed us through the deep waters of many difficulties and over the rough waves of the following dates: Thanksgiving day ball game-23-vs.24-We won. February 14th, led YWCA services., February 14th Junior-Senior Reception, May 26th, last regular meeting of '24 while known as the C'S., jUNE 5TH, VISIT TO HOME SWEET HOME. On September 27, 1923, we had at last reached womanhood and and gained possession of our long wished for name, Dignified D's.

With Blanche Wilkins as president, and under her leadership we proved what the class of '24 really could do., On October 27th, we made a decision on class rings. On December 16th we led the YWCA services.

On February 25th, we gave a reception in honor of our friends,An April 15th, Senior play presented,On June 2nd Class Day exercises., June 3, at last brings us to the end of a perfect dream, presentation of diplomas, and long wished for treasures., Then comes the greatest event of all. Our great and noble task of laying the foundation for the future generation, that is, the task of training up boys and girls into true womanhood and manhood for the Great Old North State.

Senior Normal Class Statistics 1924

Marion Newby Best All Around, Miriam Bridger Prettiest, Felsie Tucker Neatest, Osceola Crew Most Studious, Jessie Hines Jolliest, Mabel Watson Cutest, Katie Mae Roberson Most Talkative, Lillian Cockrell Most Attractive

Senior Normal Class Statistics 1924

Lillian Leary Most Accomodating, Nettie Taylor Wittiest, Blanche Wilkins Best Dressed, Nancy Brantley Most Athletic, Elizabeth Most Musical, Gladys Bateman Most Popular, Lorena Jeanette Best Sport,Sarah Barnhardt Biggest Bluffer

When we finished college, it was with a will to teach,Whether there should be members or just one to each. Even the best laid plans are sometimes knocked away, But thinking of my classmates now, I often wonder why - Marion Newby, who ten short years ago, a dentist aspired to be is now happily married and children has she three. Now, why is it that Betsy "Wright, whose middle name was sleep, Is now a leading banker with more sale than she can keep? To be a famous lecturer was Lillian Leary's one ambition, But in this work we dare not say she's found her life's true mission. Take Sarah Barnhardt for instance, who we know couldn't carry a tune ; But whose success in Metropolitan Opera is soaring toward the moou. Look at Creasy Tuttle, who was as lazy as could be, But now rides in her limousine and wears fine clothes you see. Grace Wester never knew her chance lay in the field of math, It's hard to believe but now she trods its well worn path. Dear Old Blanche whose sole object was winning of a spouse. Has built a home for Old Maids and called it "Laughinghouse". Dayton always wished to be a moving picture star, But in vain ! She's a lawyer since her admittance to the bar. To equal Senator Field's fame, was Agnes Hathaway's one desire, She has a lawyer's license but the world's not yet on fire. We thought "Eeds" Brantley's wit would put us in the background, But now she has a store and sells sugar by the ten-pound. In Jack Eeed, behold our May Queen Fair! She works in a beauty parlor and dresses ladies' hair. Then Annie Laurie Brown, who wished to win renown. Travels with a circus, acting as a clown.

To spread Mr. Leggett's philosophy was McArthur's one ambition, But now she pussy-foots it round enforcing prohibition Marjorie Bell, remember, a Butler wished to be, Is now a soap box orator, expounding liberty. Gladys, our Y. W. President, who never was a shirker, Has become a minister and is quite a pious worker. Lucia Mae, as a missionary to China wished to go. Is now at E. C. T. C, teaching boys to sew. "Dot" Johnston who wanted to get into some easy job, Is now a labor leader making speeches to the mob. Cleo, a singer great, we thought she was to be. Had to go when Nowell calls, its principal now is she.

Those Grier girls who aspired to be best teachers in Mr. Underwood's I see are out as candidates in the coming Presidential election.'t it seem strange that Irene Downcr, who was a shark in Math,

Is now end man in a minstrel and makes the people laugh?

"I'll wipe Irene Castle off the map" Miriam Kridger boasted proudly,

"Dacing's the tool of the devil," Deacon Bridger now rants loudly.

Viniarski wanted an easy joh teaching High School French, but at present is a famous judge sitting on the bench.

Mary Gold thought her talent would yield her a famous post

"Murder will out," in "Hamlet" she's playing the ghost.

And Helen Knott, whom we all esteemed so high.

Is now a crooked doctor, selling liquor on the sly.

To Louise Robinson, married life was the one thing that appealed.

She's had that and more - plowing in the field.Class of '24 Mabel Watson

Wilina thought she saw her chance with ministerial work,but she figured her chance wrong and at present is a clerk.

Lois Smith's only ambition was to become somebody's wife,

She discovered a cure for kinky hair and now is fixed for life.

To be a basketball coach, was the wish of Vera Bozeman,

Hut Alas! she has substituted one of those things called husbands.

Little did I think that the girl called Lina Bailey, Would ever become so famous that we read about her daily.

To what end did Felsie Tucker exercise her charm and grace?

She is now a Chorus Girl in some small town place.

"I'll be a daring areonaut" said Susan Lee one day.

She has taken over her Daddy's store and tries to make it pay.

Mannie is a gardener, both in name and occupation,

For as a landscape gardener she's famous throughout our nation.

Here's to Lillian Cockrell, she accomplished her ambition.

By teaching, though its only one, which was the college mission.

Helen Modlin kept this end in view, to be a millionaire.

A teacher's job looked good to her and so she landed there.

Bertha Hart would be a lawyer, but found the job too hard.

And now she works in Bowen's selling cheese cloth by the yard.

To he a movie actress was P. D.'s fondest hope.

But now she works in a drug store and concocts a wicked dope.

Irma Nesbit wished to be a politician astute.

But as a doctor of the heart she now has won repute.

To he a famous poet was Grace Atwater's aspiration,

But a family with its attachment leaves no time for meditation.

Osceola in her student days a shark always seemed,

Now she reports every night, "Sir, the floors are clean."

"I'll be a staid Old Maid" said Glennie to the girls.

She is now a trapeze walker turning flips and whirls.

In college Annie Little as a student made her mark,

Behold her now a peddler selling popcorn in the park.

Myrtle and Nell both aspired to be a patent merchant prince,

They've started ont as teachers and have done it ever since.

Sara and Joanna, both were doctors in their dreams.

But who we see as dressmakers, who sew the finest seams.

As we look back over all our days and recall Bertie Maness,

We think now of her famous sign "Teeth Extracted, Painless."

Betty Long and Bessie Bottoms who both were teachers rare.

At present have a side show in the Greenville fair.

Lorena tad no thought but to gather beaucamp jack,

But now she scrapes a living with a Lizzie as a hack.

"I'll never come back once I get away" said Margaret to us one day,

But wait ! She is back at college teaching English for darn good pay.

Quote "Lib" Stanley, "As a teacher I'll make the world stand still."

Can't say much for the teaching but she's right there with it still.

To be a great musician was the wish of Annie Lee Carter,

Now she is the Leading Lady in "My Lady's Garter."

And little Annie and Maggie who had no wish for fame,

Have now success and fortune playing the National Game.

Those Broughton sisters wished to be owners of large estates,

They are now employed as packers, packing fruit in crates.

Eula and Sudie said, "There's nothing in a name."

It seems they've changed their minds since then, 'cause they're playing the married game.

Grace and Margaret always wished to take a trip to Mars They've given up that ambition and at present are studying the stars.

Bonnie Boswell, a singer great, always wished to be, Now she's at a Model School teaching do re me.

Being treasurer of our Class must have helped Mary Ruth, For she is now a leading banker in the city of Duluth.

Mary and Irene, who were Braswells as you know. Have recently eloped with two actors from the show.

Bessie and Annie Bell Dean, who were never knee high to a duck, Are playing in their latest picture "Always Just Outa Luck."

Margaret Hayes and Sallie Freeman, those girls from the County of Gates, Have adopted for their specialty the painting of china plates.

Aileen Critcher and Josie Barnes who never skipped a lesson. Have taken up aesthetic dancing and are leaders in that profession.

Millie and Little Katie Lee who were both as fine as silk. At present are State Inspectors, looking for germs in milk.

"I'll be a great light in the world" one day said Annie Bryon, She's now a traveling salesman selling electric irons.

Barbara, Agnes and Janie, all three whom we thought would never pass. Have become United States Senators, ahead of the rest of the class.

Lucy Grey King and Sadie Kellum, who always told the line. At present are Old Maid School teachers, and of the very worst kind.

Lois Lynch and Claire Lynn, who were girls of the finest type, Are now with Libby Company, advertising Libby's Tripe.

Lila and Marie Mitchell, sisters in name if not in blood. Have become rich by molding statutes, not of clay but out of mud.

Ora, Willie and Flora the little McCormack cousins, At present have a honey farm, where the bees are always 'buzzin'

Dora Mac and Doris Jackson, who hail from Winterville, Are now quack country doctors, administering sugar pills.

Strange but true, the whole "H" family Hines, Horton, House and Harris, Now are famous modistes, away in far off Paris.

Grace Jordan, remember those big alluring brown eyes, But to hear of her now as an occulist, indeed is quite a surprise.

Lanier and Johnson saw themselves as doctors in their dreams. They got their chance, went down, not up, and now saw planks and beams.

Garnett, Gladys, and Christine, all members of one gang, All doing their bit in this world,

in the wiping out of slang.

Those Perry girls, wlio were quite the berries in the gold ole days of yore, Are now at the University taking a course

in folklore.

"We'll both be famous architects" said McCanless and Pendergraph,

But who are back in dear old Greenville on the Daily Reflector


'Twas ahvavs thought that Nettie Taylor and Sallie Waters would both prove hindenthals, In China now you'll find them - they've answered the

call. But Margaret West, remember was leader of the Poes, You'll find her now at Heber Forbes fitting misses clothes. "I'll be a bareback rider"

was the comment of Faye Purser, She is now at E. C. T. C, acting as bursar. Mamie Shelton as you know was Mary Gold's first cousin,

Now operates a fresh fruit farm, "Hens eggs by the dozen". "I'd like to be a tennis champ" said Nellie Pearee and Charlotte White,

Their wish was never realized for they've chosen married life. Winfree, Kogers, and Peterson, who were all three carefree lasses. Are now with Karo Company, selling black molasses.

Rosalind and Katie Mae Roberson, not sisters by any means. Have turned to art as their life work and are painting landscapes. Inez Gerald and Kennedy, who in basketball saved the day,

Started out as teachers but found it didn't pay. Lucille Credle, we always thought would surely reach the top, Her dreams are rudely shattered, she is now a traffic cop.

Virginia Faulkner and Mary Tyson, who consuls wished to be, At present are at Davenport, selling Lipton Tea. Westbrook, Withers and Yelverton, loyal members of '24, Have come together as partners

and built themselves a store. Mabel Watson, if I remember, came to us from Rowland, Has won great fame as a soloist by "My Heart is in the Lowl Jackson, Brown and Whichard, who artists wished to be,

Have built a home for the aged, as a bit for humanity. Madge Porter and Mary Helms who we always thought were quiet, I see by the papers are the principle leaders in a terrible riot.

On account of sickness, Pittard and Fonville left us for awhile, They are lecturing now in Washington on "The Dangers of Maiden's Wiles." And so it is the whole way through, as you did read and see.

They've none done what they should have done or been what they should be. But through it all no one can say, however bold, That we've been disloyal to the purple and the gold.

Elizabeth Morris, '24

Class Poem



Far down the path come memories twining Memories fond and dear. Memories that are yet inclining. To hold loving hearts for their classmates, also sincere

Forgetting our Junior Normal Class is something impossible to do. And we will ever prove loyal to the colors white and blue We love each one with hearts that are sincere. As for our class making good, we have no fear. Our spirit and cooperation is just as tho' we were all one. And we always try to see that the good and noble thingsare done. We try not to seek honors: we try not to seek fame. But we do fight hard to win life's game. Although our road, sometimes seems miserably rugged'tis true. We must never give up, but keep faith and fight it through; Because to every side, there is something bright on the other one. Therefore we must keep on until we accomplish what is begun. , "Not on the heights. hut climbing is our motto; This we will ever try to prove true. Making it stronger wherever we go. It makes no difference what we may do. The songs we sang may wither: All heaven and earth may fall. But the Junior Normal Class will ever prove loyal to the college, classmated, faculty and al. The Junior Normal Class will ever climb upward and afar. And someday hitch their wagon to a star. Also very humble we shall ever be. And try to be worthy O college of Thee.

"Y. W. C. A. means so much to me!" exclaimed the Girl to our Y. W, C. A. President.

"In what ways does it mean so much to you?" asked our President.

"Well." laughed the Girl, "I am so enthusiastic about it that I hardly know which feature to mention first. To begin with, the Y. W. C. A. is the only religious organization in College. Its representatives were the first to greet the new girls and to welcome them to E. C. T. C. Then the Y. W. gave the get-acquainted party on the campus the first Saturday night the girls were here, and that helped to dispel the homesick feeling."

"So those were your first impressions of Y. W.", said our President. "Now how about the religious services we have regularly?"

"The Friday night services are enjoyable because the programs are varied. The program, following the business meeting one Saturday night in each month, is amusing and is a change from the regular routine since we do not have an opportunity to attend church services on Sunday nights, the religious programs take the place of sermons. The Morning Watch Services, held every morni ng except Sunday, from 7:15 to 7:30 are an inspiration, and start the day right."

"Do you enjoy the Bible and Mission classes?" asked our President.

"Yes, indeed," the Girl responded, "and I wish they came oftener than once a week. These classes are well worth while, because the various members of the Faculty, who conduct them, have the discussion organized in an interesting and helpful way. In these services, as in all other phases of the Y. W., we have an opportunity to mingle with the girls, and to add to the good fellowship that already exists."

"I have mentioned how the Y. W. attends to our spiritual and social needs. It also attends to our physical needs, because when we are hungry, we go to the Y. W. store. which is in a convenient place in the Administration Building."

"Yes," said our President, "and soon we hope to improve our store .and add a tea room. Also in the Campus Building, which is under construction, the Y. W. will have a home-like modern rest room, well equipped with such things as a piano and a victrola."

"That will be wonderful," agreed the Girl. "I wanted, too, to mention the reports that we get from big conferences. We hear much about the inspiration and help our present Y. W. cabinet obtained from Blue Ridge, and then your talk about the Indianapolis convention, to which the Student Body sent you, was a thrilling message in itself."

"Another big conference will be held in New York soon," added our President, "and we will send one or more delegates to that. Then, besides the religious work of the Y. W. C. A., we want to bring some worth while social activities into the college. Of course we have our regular spring festival, but we want more than that. One of our secret plans (don't tell anyone) is to give a reception."

The Girl clapped her hands. "Now," she asked, "do you wonder after realizing the wide scope of the Y. W. activities, that I say it causes the noble spirit, the wholesome atmosphere, and the feeling of good will that exist in Teachers College?"

ATHLETICS! This word brings to mind a picture of gymnasiums, ball diamonds, tennis courts, golf links, skating rinks, swimming pools, and innumerable boys and girls with cheeks flushed, eyes sparkling and merry voices shouting in the excitement of the game.

The first game of importance at E. C. T. C, is the Thanksgiving basketball game between the two Normal Classes. This exciting event is the only athletic feature during the fall term. Despite the damp, wet court on this day both teams put up a creditable fight, the Junior Normal Class winning by a score of 24 - 8.

During the winter term all the "gym" classes go out for track training for the big event "Field Day" which comes in the early spring. The basketball, baseball and tennis tournaments, however, begin before this day, the final game being played on "Field Day."

This day is full of quite a number of lively athletic features with the classes participating and with all the girls bubbling over with enthusiasm. The game on this day decided the winners of the two silver loving cups; the class winning in basketball receiving the basketball cup and the class winning the most points in tennis, baseball, and track the general athletic cup. This season furnished quite a bit of entertainment for the college students and the faculty with these animated contests and the friendly spirit of rivalry displayed by the contestants.

For the coming year we are expecting still more athletic sports as our new gymnasium will be completed and quite a number of new phases in atliletics will be introduced. This will provide more recreation for the girls and will afford more opportunity for them to spend their free moments profitably.

Our gymnasium teacher has offered a loving cup to the individual making the most points in athletics this year. Each one is working to see if she will be the lucky one, and each is hoping that she will.

The skillful center, Felton, so tall, Made it impossible for the Seniors to get the ball.With these as a line up you may well understand.The excitement created when the Thanksgiving game began.First to one and then to the other.Rolling and tumbling they clashed together,Thus raged the battle until it was done. When the score keeper announced, "The Juniors have won!"But one thing the Juniors will all have to say. The Seniors were good sports throughout the day.

Social Recreation

/.The social activities of E. C. T. C. constitute a phase of life which fills every student's heart with a bright warm glow which will be remembered long after we have left our dear old Alma Mater.

An evening of peppy enthusiastic games on the campus, followed by refreshments was given by the Y. W. C. A., and the Student Government Association on the first Saturday evening of school. Each girl wore her name so that she might be learned. An air of intimacy and good fellowship always pervades these little functions which make it a most enjoyable occasion for all parties concerned.

The next thought of a social gathering was the reception given by the various churches on the third Monday evening of school. In addition to the pleasure of meeting the people of the town which these receptions afford, they may be instrumental in helping some poor girl "catch a new beau". Lucky is she who among the twenty-five who gathered around him was chosen "the one".

Time passed onward. The howl of October wind told us there were witches in the air, thus our thoughts were turned to a Halloween party. This was truly a night of fun when we learned that the faculty was equally as skilled in bobbing for apples as a ten-year-old boy.

What thrills a Freshie more than to learn that the sixth week of school brings the night of society initiation and she must wear her hair in tiny plaits the previous day? This much dreaded occasion seemed to afford an unusual social recreation, for we heard those who rode the goat, or the cat, or even those who used the laundry list as a solo, declaring they never had a better time.

Students formed themselves into various clubs. The picnics, weinie roasts and other socials given by these clubs did much to break the monotony of dormitory life. Similar socials were given by the various Sunday schools from time to time during the year.

This year the literary societies and the Freshman and First Year Normal classes gave a play free of charge to the student body.

The Junior-Senior and D classes each gave to the students and community a play which afforded the highest type of social recreatioN.

The D Class this year gave a reception to their gentlemen friends and the faculty. What could cause more excitement at E. C. T. C, than the presence of one hundred boys at a reception.

The Senior reception given by the College was another feature of particular interest.

The President's Reception to the Seniors and Senior Normals gave its normal contribution to the social functions of the year.

The College owns a moving picture machine. The students are shown free of charge one picture each week.

Our list would not be complete without mentioning our May Day Festival This came near the end of the year and left many pleasant memories for the students students to carry through the holidays.

So it is that the grinding monotony of dormitory life has been broken from time to time, and the students furnished with the wholesome recreation so necessary to the proper performance of the more serious duties of college life.

A. Woodward, '24.
