In appreciation of true friendship, we dedicate this book to Miss Mamie E. Jenkins and Miss Maria D. Graham, who, since their childhood days, have been close friends, have been close friends and who, since the opening year of college, have given to ittheir unstinted service and loyal friendship.

Miss Maria D. Graham

Miss Mamie E. Jenkins


The drama of college life is not unlike others its setting is sometimes unattractive; its players often play minor parts; its management is not always able to manage; its features are sometimes disappointing, Those are the phases Which the critic or the disinterested spectator is likely to see, but neithei is able to comprehend the " happinesses" which come to those behind the curtain. Theirs is the joy of being directed in a friendly, scholarly manner, of occasionally attaining artistic interpretation, of loving one's felloW players, and finally of meriting the applause of clever, interested patrons. It follows that the stage grows greater; the players troop on and off; each season brings zest and enthusiasm. "In other thingsthe knowing artist may judge better than the people; but a play (Made for delight and no other use) If you approve it not has no other use."

"In other things the knowing artist may Judge better than the people; but a play

(Made for delight and no other use) If you approve it not has no excuse."

Act Two-The Classes

The Senior Class

What is the end of study ? Let me know? Why that to know, which else we should not know." Love's Labour Lost.

' Thus far our fortune keeps an upward course, And we arc graced with wreaths of victory." Henry V.

The 1928 TECOAN

Jean Harrington Senior Class Mascot

Breathless and still the waiting audience sits The curtains every June are drawn aside; The players go by groups to speak their parts. And win the loud applause from every side.

A drama of short interludes, each year

A new group plays before the waiting crowd.

The watchers change; the players leave; and

Finds us behind the curtain, young and proud.

Those gone before did moralize and strut

With lilted heads and graceful poise and walk,-

To gain a rose, a smile, blessing sweet;

Now we behind the curtains mimic talk.

Their farewell speech is said. They've bowed,

they've gone To leave the stage to us. In silent prayer Behind the scenes we wait, and those who watch can almost hear the heart beats missing there.

The stage is clear. 'The audience loudly Cheers; .1 minute passes; the loud applause grows less; We touch our hair, we practice curtsies low; We say our lines and rearrange our dress.

Tour years we've waited for our scene to come, To go before the world our parts to play. Four years we've practiced lines and graceful bows - And now the month has come, the week, the day.

Will they throw roses when veeve said our parts? Will loud applause ring out when we are gone. We step, the curtains sway, the audience breathless sits. The music starts: our drama - yours - mine - moves on. Bessie Willis

Senior Class History

First Chronicler:

O college mates, you shall behold Our story in numbers rude that mould The record of our class.

Second Chronicler:

First as Freshmen we present

A year of very little event;

Our thoughts were new, our deeds were few

Our minds untouched - untrained.

First Chronicler

But all this changed ; and with Spratt as guide

We plunged into things e'en Sophomores dread -

Fancies of poets, historical lore,

Intricate languages, learning's whole store -

Pedagogical laws that shall rule our path.

Philosophical views that stirred our wrath.

Thrice in that year did bold Cupid appear

To steal away the hearts of those

Who feel the sharp darts of Love's joys and woes.

In the same twelvemonth Carolina Playmakers came

At our behest, to add credit to our name.

The Sophomore-Senior camping trip

Brought revels in the spring -

A link of friendship.

Anon as jesters we filled the Court

Of the queen, with capers and rustic sport.


And ever as we went,

We bore in our hearts the high intent,

"Not failure but Low Aim is Crime."

Second Chronicler:

Fast rolled the cycle of Time

To the first glad days

Of the Junior year;'

And as "Intimate Strangers" we went our ways

Gathering a host of memories

For treasure troves

In life's caravan of year on year.

Next, through anxieties and honest toil

And hospitality's gay turmoil,

We decked our Junior-Senior banquet hall ;

There brought our sister class in touch with us,

And strengthened friendly loves

That gladden all of us.


Unchanged our hearts,

Untouched our dreams,

We came to Seniorhood ;

And ever in going we were heard to

"Not Failure but Low Aim is Crime.

First Chronicler

You who have held high times with college frieni

Know the enchantment the Senior year lends

The joys and the fancies,

The parties and the dances,

The work, the play, and the fun.

With a smile and a jest

We did our best,

And found the Blue Bird of Happiness.

We reveled in pleasure

With time-breaking leisure,

And worked with new thoughts and new schemes.

Together we tried all our faults to mend,

Together we mourned the death of a friend ;

And ever we chanted the words sublime,

"Not Failure but Low Aim is Crime."

Second Chronicler:

And now four years of work are done,

And Fate has each in his grasp :

Each of" us has her part to play.

Each of us has her lines to say

In the great Drama of Life.

So we'll leave the work and the college to you

And carry with us our memories true.

We'll pull back the curtain, and enter the play

To take up new roles - some sad, some gay.


And ever in going, in peace or strife, On rugged mountain, in torrid clime, We'll chant, as early in our life, "Not Failure but Low Aim is Crime."


Last Will and Testament

Were I a poet, I would write an epic, telling of our deeds and sounding the praise of our college, that would last through the ages. Were I a dramatist, I would write a drama to be enacted by my class- mates, that would stir the souls of men, arouse their finest emotions, and inspire their loftiest aspirations and ideals. Fain would I bequeath to our Alma -Mater a gift in noble words, more enduring than marble - but my pen fails - marble only can I leave.

One small piece of bronze statuary - a material gift - this the Senior Classes of 1928 bring as a parting gift. Yet symbol is it of our love and devotion to our college. It represents the best we have. From its pedestal in the library may it deepen in those who pass a love of the beautiful and therefore of the holy, that they themselves may be living dramas of beauty and holiness.

Signed and sealed on this, the fourth day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-eight, at East Carolina Teachers College, Greenville, N. C.

The Casting

NEW season was at hand. New plays with old and new plots were to be $$ produced; new players to he ca.t; new parts to be lived. These things were being given consideration by the Director. The selection of plays had been made; some with swift and happy movements; some slow and uninspiring- mere pantomimes; some terse and gripping; some thoughtful and exalting.

"But the players?" puzzled the Director. He unwound his scrolls as he sat at his desk. "Can this one or that one play this part? I shall see." As he scanned his scroll, he raised his face meditatively.

He called in the Coaches- Comedy, Pantomime, Tragedy and Chronicle. The four masked figures stood ready to receive commands from their Director. "Bid those enter who wait outside," he ordered the porter. The group nearest the door hurried in, and the casting began. "Greetings to you - a merry looking crowd!" welcomed the Director. "To you the same! Today is today; tomorrow we don't know, therefore we are merry today," responded the group.

"Hev, Comedy, your group is here. No further try-out is needed. Be off with them." The figure with the grinning, never-a-care mask gaily led his patrons away.

The Director resumed his reading. In a few moments another group quietly made their way in. It was some minutes before the Director knew that they had come.

"Your parts have been decided," announced the Director. At his beck, the expres- sionless masked figure led them out; Pantomime was to begin his coaching with these submissive ones.

"Others are waiting, sir," reminded the porter.

"Show them in," commanded the Director, and the porter solemnly opened the door. "Let us rest a while before you begin, sir. We've had a weary journey. Things were against us," pleaded the group.

As the Director nodded to them, he glanced over his scrolls and then their faces. The atmosphere was tense. The Director's face filled with pity, and he sat silent, re-

The figure with the dejected, sorrowful mask haltingly stepped before him. "My lord,' he began, "are you ready to yield my players to me now?" There was a plaintive note in his voice. He was Tragedy.

"They are before you. Their parts must be played. Assign them!" responded the Director.

"And still there are more to he placed," mused the Director as he observed the latest group enter the room.

"Your parts? I can't find any in plays for you. They are all taken. Off the stage is vour sphere of work. Some of you will be managers, some critics, some playwrights. These are yours, Chronicle. They are to watch, to think, and to record, that others may- play their parts."

Forward stepped he of the sagacious, introspet Chronicle headed his stately band towards the rear.

The Director rose from his desk and rolled up the scroll. The casting was finished.

Flower: Ragged Robin

We look upon thy walls with tender thoughts, While sinks behind the cloud the glowing sun. And ponder o'er tin prizes in them won. The weary toilsome battles therein fought. Purple shadows like a cloak fall 'round us; Twilight deepens; from afar a lark Breaks the silence, sends a song into the dark, Coming as a voice from out the dusk. What, O Alma Mater, would this voice say.' What the challenge that thou fling'st afar? Art thou to nobler heights our guiding star.' Aye, thou wilt guide for ever and a day! This the challenge that thou sendest hither: 'Faithful, loyal, true, be thou ever'."

Merchant of Venice.

Colors: White and Gold

Motto: Non Sibi sed Omnibus

Flower: Daisy

Now the sun is rising to our sight, Now the day is waking out of night; Blue against red, red against blue, Emblems of loyalty, brave and true.

Now a Speck of radiant gold ascends. With a touch of grey that also blends; Grey against gold, gold against grey In revelation of the coming day.

While the sun its course is wending high. It expands its rays across the sky; A Flame! - and colors in array; Against the blue, red , gold and grey.

Symphony in blue, red, gold, and grey; Royal colors in a grand array; Flame against gold, gold against red - "North Carolina Sunrise," the poet said.

I would not count the days of yesteryear - To me they're as the pages of a book -

Written upon, passed over, closed forever.

'Tis to the Future and what it brings we'll look.

Class, we've been long together.

'Tis hard to part for Friendship's dear.

We've braved the pleasant and the roughest weather,

And now we face again - another year -

Scattered? Yes - but we would have it so,

For through our Service may we ever

Closer, happier, always helpful grow.

To the Future, then - we hail you! Welcome Friend!

With Service as our watchword we'll go through, And to old Alma Mater shall return!"

An echo - "Class of '28, we're proud of you!

Groups of Flapperism

Groups of Studiousness

Groups of Courage

Groups of Timidity

Groups of Lovelornness

Representatives of All Other Characteristics of the Modern American Girl in the background of each scene.

Act "C"

Scene I First Day - Administration Building

The halls lined with directions and information posters, walls hung with a few well-chosen pictures, tables weighted down with blank schedule cards; characters nervously wandering over the corridors with eyes and mouth open.

(Scene fades out for a moment while the title flashes on the screen.) "O! the gales of wisdom are beginning to open slowly."

Scene 2 First Party - Campus Building

The spacious and brightly illuminated hall shining forth in all its pride and splendor, purple

and gold decorations hanging in profusion; Dignity, Timidity and Flapperism seen on stage;

Dignity seated at one side quietly conversing with new acquaintances; Timidity glancing around

in uncomfortable silence; Flapperism running about from group to group chattering noisily.

(Title flashes on the screen)

"All college life is one grand party."

Scene 3 Initiation Day- The College Campus

Dignity, Flapperism, Courage, Studiousness, Timidity, and Lovelornness, in succession of pictures, running errands for upper classmen, outwardly courteous, inwardly raging; defiantly observing temporary rules; cleaning rooms and making beds, staring in amazement at each other's unmade-up complexions and plaited hair; moving from place to place shivering with dread - pathetic, forlorn creatures, letting out sobs for relief. (Title flashes on the screen) "Now we can be ourselves; initiation is over."

Scene 4 Election of Officers- Auditorium of Administration Building, Saturday Evening

Characters anxiously moving about discussing candidates, waiting for the meeting to come to order and suppressing their impatience with difficulty; nominations being made; candidates withdrawing, votes being counted; the newly elected officers passing slowly across the stage. (Title flashes on the screen) Officers elected. Our fate is in their hands."

Scene 5 In Full Swing - College Campus Activities

Scenes showing groups shopping, hiking, and dancing - furnishing pastime for all - Dignity and Studiousness seated on the campus or in the Library; Flapperism and Lovelornness in Council chairs, on the verge of tears, awaiting judgment.

(Title flashes on the screen) "Lovelornness turns only half fate from Fifth Street." "It won't be long now."

Scene 6 Flunk Slips- Post Office

All characters on stage; excitement, hubbub, push, jam; anxious faces, apparently weak hearts, cold hands, moments of impatience dragging by; slips of pink paper that are not rain- bows of promise; many and vain regrets, much rejoicing; Flapperism and Lovelornness morti- fied and struggling with tears; Studiousness and Courage, with heads high, supporting Timidity. (Title flashes on the screen) "The flunk slips are out! ! Oh, joy - Oh, sorrow!"

Time: Three Months Later

Act "D"

Scene I Back Again - The College Campus

Old friends, new friends; Dignity, Studiousness, and Courage moving about in tvpical manner; Flapperism with somewhat changed and subdued manner trying to imitate Dignity in preparation for Practice Teaching. Timidity more confident than in Act "C" ; Lovelornness just about the same, making brave effort to keep thoughts on work. (Title flashes on the screen) "Our schedule is wonderful - we do practice teaching." "Oh, mine doesn't come till Spring."

Scene 2

Seventeenth Annual Play- Administration Building

Auditorium filled with eager audience, commotion and excitement back of stage, girls moving nervously, running about on tip toes ; actors metamorphosed, girls today, tonight men and women.

(Title flashes on the screen) Lovelornness: "Dignity, did they like it? What are the gate receipts?"

Scene j Graduation - The Campus Building

A beautiful, bright June morning; white dresses, thin and airy, seen at every glance; friends and relatives rejoicing; all groups represented, Studiousness and Courage appearing tall as giants; Lovelornness, in her original spirit trips along; Timidity, small as a dwarf, falls in line. Diplomas and Bible given to the wearers of the white dresses; congratulations offered on every side.

(Title flashes on the screen) "Graduation has come and gone." Flapperism to Courage: "And this is All!"

Scene 4 - Last Will and Testament

Representatives of lower classes gathered, the leader of each group placing her mantle on the shoulder of an undergraduate:

Dignity places hers on the shoulders of a young flapper, who looks up startled; Flapperism laughingly drapes hers with a stylish twist on the most serious one in the class; Studiousness passes hers on to a weak, trembling group who are noted for being in a "cond'tional state."

Courage calls forth those who are expecting an invitation from the Student Council to visit them in the council room, and leaves her mantle to be used by each in turn.

Timidity surprises the over-confident with the proffer of her robe.

Lovelornness, with a sly look, drops hers over the arm of the book-worm, so that the book is hidden, and with a laugh directs her look to Fifth Street.

(Title flashes on the screen) "The President's Farewell Address."

"The above elusive properties we leave with the sincere hope that the actors who succeed us will find them usable and valuable, and that the tone of the future performances will be raised by the judicious use of such properties.

"In case, however, the actors of the future fail to note our bequest, we leave with President Wright a tangible evidence of our erstwhile presence and of the great love we bear our Alma Mater.

"May the gift bring to East Carolina Teachers College all the good that we are wishing for her."

Act "X"

Time: Anytime between 1928-'48 Place: Everywhere. Scene l - Schoolroom

School bell ringing; rushing of feet into the class room, quieting of tongues; lessons being recited; children "staying in" after school; parents vis'ting; bells ringing for close of school; commencement exercises. Lovelornness in the center of every group, with show of courage and dignity, at the close left alone.

(Title flashes on the screen) "Ah, Woe is me.' When will he come?"

Scene 2- Cupid's Bulletin Board

Engagement ring, announcement party, showers being attended; Dignity the center of attractions; trousseau being planned and bought; announcements being mailed; wedding hells pealing forth; the vows are spoken; Courage gets a glimpse of even Timidity fleeing from a shower of rice. (Title flashes on the screen) "School teachers of all kinds go the same way; few are left old maids."

Scene 3- The Home,

Hollyhocks and larkspur surrounding a small bungalow; playground equipment in one side of the yard; children's happy voices and excited laughter echoing around the house; father coming home to lunch; the family seated around the dining room table; the mother with a faint resemblance of Lovelornness of old at the head of the table, smiling at her happy family. (Title flashes on the screen) "How much sweeter to be teaching your own."

Scent 4 - The Few Lelt. Spotlight on each in a different secne.

Courage doing wonderful missionary work in China; Studiousness back at her Alma Mater teaching North Carolina History to her classmates' daughters; Flapperism, weathered with age. acting as private secretary to President Wright.

(Title flashes on the screen) "Our vocation is to serve others."

-Alls Well That End's Well!" FINIS

As Told On You

Eloise: "The man I marry must be brave as a lion, but not forward; handsome as Apollo but not conceited; wise as Solomon, but meek as a lamb; a man who is kind to every woman but loves only one."

Justus: "By Jove, how lucky we met!"

A minister went into a negro barber shop to get a shave. The barber being under the influence of liquor made several bad cuts on the minister's face, whereupon the minister, ever alert to call attention to the evils of drink, said : "Now you see what booze does."

"Yessah," replied the negro, "It sho do make de skin tendah!"


"How do you play hookey in a correspondence school?"

"Easy, send them an empty envelope."

She: "That was Mr. Kent. Don't you think he is good-looking? He is so romantic. Every time he speaks to me he starts off with "Fair Lady!"

He: "Oh, that is only force of habit. He used to be a street car conductor."

Lillian: "I'll be yours on one condition."

Jim: "Easy, I entered college on six."

Miss Sharp: "Perhaps you won't believe me, but a strange man tried to kiss me once."

Catherine Clark: "One of my ancestors came over on the Mayflower." Spratt: "Oh, really, how long is he going to stay?"

Between the chair and the stairway, Where the steps are beginning to lower

I sat at the close of the evening, And called him at the twilight hour.

A whisper and then a snicker;

You could tell by our laughing eyes We were plotting and planning together

To take him by surprise.

I heard on the steps above me,

The sound of heavy feet, The sound of a voice that is Susie's,

Warning me to be sweet.

A sudden punch from the stairway, "This is Susie," she bade me say;

"You say you're thrilled to hear me- Yes. I'm home for the holiday."

From the hook I take the receiver.

And Susie descends the stair; "Eight one," I say to central; then.

"Is David Weaver there?"

"Why didn't I write you?. Ah-uh- Perhaps I was busy; let's see,

Yes - er-er, your card reached me safely - What's that?" Tee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee.

Susie almost bemauled me with punches.

Her arms thrust over the stair; "What was that he was saying," she whispered -

"He wants a date, do you care?'

"The children were noisy," I told him, I hope you will pardon the wail.

"Yes. I'll be ready at seven;

And you promise you will not be late?"

We will keep our secret forever;

Yet I laugh to myself for all that. For he'll never know it wasn't

Susie who called him - but Spratt.

Cupid: "Well, I'll tell you one thing - money doesn't make a happy marriage." The 0wl: "No, but it makes up for an unhappy one."

"Our revels are ended. These, our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and

are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this

vision, The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous

palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe

itself, Yea, all which -it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant

faded, Leave not a rack behind."
