1929 Tecoan

A Year Book

of East Carolina Teachers College

Greenville, N. C.


Go, little book-

With such a gentle command, the old writers sent their volumes into the world

We, too, are sending forth a book, in the pages of which we hope you will find reminders of all that has been pleasant in your days at this college. As you turn the leaves, may you enjoy in retrospect the best and happiest of your experiences here-quiet hours in the library, jolly gatherings at the Hut, good talk among friends, strolls through the woods of the west campus, laughter along the halls, and the keen intillectual enjoyment of the classroom.

We have woven the account of this past year around the story of King Arthur and his knights. The age of Chivalry represents the spirit which we hope abides in us all. The loyalty, the courage, the love of truth and honor, the reverence for good and noble things, the unswerving devotion to great causeswhich made the knights peerless are the qualitieswhich are most precious to us. We have, therefore linked our stories with theirs.

And now, to those who cherished the happy memories preserved in these pages and who will read these words and view these scenes with the partial eye of one who loves her Alma Mater-

Go little book.


Because we wish to show, as well as we may,

how we have appreciated his sympathetic

help and guidance in the publication of the

Tecoan, we dedicate this

volume to

Dr. R. J. Slay

January 19, 1901 - February 22, 1929

For three and a half years her life was an inspiration to all in this college who fell under the spell of the loveliness of her face and character, the charm of her personality, the graciousness of her manner, and the beauty of her spirit. The strings of her violin are muted, and the tones of her rich contralto voice are silenced, but they will echo on.

Idyl Two....The Classes


Mary Elizabeth Austin, Senior Mascot

Senior Class Poem

Oaks grow in stature as the years advance And spread their branches far and wide, Then, as they stand there, sturdy, ever fast, Acorns are dropped to form new oaks again. So we hart gained in knowledge and in truth. Maturing, growing stronger day by day, Until we now are ready in our turn To give again what has been given to us.

A mighty oak our Alma Mater stands And gives us, resting in her sheltering shade, Nurture and protection till we grow like her - upright, and tall, and strong. Young oaks that now will start the task anew. Replenishing the grounds that nourished them. Striving to be always "not less than best" - A living pattern of the parent oak.

The Actes and Historyes of tke Most Glorious Order of Seniors

(Written in View of the definition that "History is a pageant, not a philosophy," and with apologies to Sir Thomas Mallory.)

The First Book of the Order of '29 Chapter

Chapter 1

Our Arrival

In September, 1925, we, the members of the Order of '29, departed from our homes for to seek adventures at college.

And when we were come, all the Y. W. C. A. girls made great joy of us, nobly counselled us unto the way of doing things.

Chapter 2

Election of Our First President

At the meeting of the Order, all manner of girls were nominated for president of the Freshman Order, but none prevailed but Annie Shields Van Dyke. Wherefore all memb once, "We will have Annie Shields unto our president." And so anon was the election made, and she was sworn unto her classmates for to be a true president, to stand with true thenceforth the days of this office holding.

Chapter 3

How the Sophomores Ever Rebuked Us We were besieged with a tyrannical Sophomore band, and ever they rebuked us and suffered us to sing laundry lists, work, and amuse them. And so we endured "all that nine month, and never displeased man, woman, or child, but always were meek and mild.

Chapter 4

Of the First War the Order of '29 Had and How They Won the Field

And then the examinations approached and great strokes were smitten on both sides, and a few men overthrown, hurt, and slain; and great valiances, prowesses, and feats of war were that week showed, which were over long to recount the noble feats of every man, for they shi contain a whole volume. President Wright rode into the battle exhorti

do well. Each Freshman drew out Excalibur, his sword, and anon hewed and slew subjects downright. We slew a great giant named Eng'ish, which was a study of an huge quantity and height. The Freshmen shorted him and smote off hoth his legs by the knees, saying, "Now art thou better of a size to deal with than thou were." We fought nobly and slew six subjects in that battle. Thus the battle endured long. And when it was known that six subjects were slain, there was great joy, and we followed the chase in our Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years, and slew downright all of them we might ohtain. And them that were failed, the Credits Committee let the instructors search their hurts and wounds, and commanded them to spare no salves nor medicines till they were whole.

And there was sorrow and lamentation when it was told that it was death for some of our classmates' college life, which were taken away by examinations

Book the Second

Chapter 1

How the High and Mighty Sophomores Rebuked the Freshmen

When the Order of '29 had after a long vacation rested, we returned unto the halls of learn- e were the high and mightv Sophomores. We did send to the Freshmen dge us the lords of creation and to conform to the statutes and decrees 1 worthy Sophomores. We rebuked them for about a sennight, but the hat was done against them.

Chapter 2

How a Damsel Was Loved and Married And as good fortune would, there came a very perfect gentle knight to Nell, one of our damsels fair, and cast great love to her and she began to have great fancy unto him

the more the knight beheld that lady the more he loved her, and so he burned in love that he was past himself in reason, and when he went unto supper he might not eat for his love was so great. And then the knight went unto the damsel, and either made great joy of the other. Therewith the knight plighted his troth unto the lady to be true and faihful unto her. And there she promised him her love, certainly to love him and none other the days of her life. And anon they were wedded with great nobility, and they loved ever together.

The Third Book

Chapter 1

In Which the Order of '29 Take to Themselves a President

And at a meeting that we held the members of the Order of '29 made Lilyan Colson president, and she was made to have charge of our Order's affairs. And Lilyan proved a noble and wise president.

In this year the Juniors made merry at three one-act plays "The Beau of Bath", "Figureheads, and "Glory of the Morning."

Chapter 2

How the Juniors Held a Banquet Then the Order of Juniors let cry a banquet, that it he holden on the night of May the twelfth. A great array was made in the banquet room, and well may ye wit that there was all manner of meat plenteously. And the Juniors were glad of their coming, and all that night we had good cheer. A good part of the time was spent in dancing and caroling. Thus dured the feast long, and after the feast was done we had a merry rest.

The Fourth Book

Chapter 1

In Which the Order is Made Right Glad by the Coming of New Members Then the members of the Order of '29 put on the armour of Seniorhood and plunged over

the heads in deep study for to well learn all we might.

And it happened that new members were let in, and when the old members of the class

heard of their coming, we made great joy, and said openly, "These damsels are passing welcome."

Chapter 2

In the Great Tourney on the Basketball Court Then they blew to the field, and there the Order of '29 encountered with the Order of '30, and there the Order of '29 had a fall.

We fought for a great while and gave many strokes of great might and took many great strokes.

And when the game was over, we went unto the dining room and there was a great feast and great revel, and the prize was given to the Order of '30.

Chapter 3

"Smilin' Through"

So it befell in the month of September that our president Lilyan Colson called unto her the of the Seniors and also gave us warning that in December we were expected to give a play. And so we made ready for the occasion. And then on two evenings set we made merry with "Smilin' Through." The stage was all bedashed with mosses and flowers in the best manner, and the participants were arrayed in costumes suiting their respective parts. The were all at ease and threw an enchantment over the audience, and the spectators marvelled much at their acting and praised them mightily. After the play was given the Seniors made great joy of the success that was come, and passing glad were we of the actors.

Chapter 4 Commencement and Farewell

And all in haste the members of the Order of Seniors got ready for commencement in the most honourablest wise that could be devised. Then on Sunday a minister was fetched to preach the Baccalaureate Sermon, and he blessed the class with great royalty and devotion. Then the faculty gave us the order of graduation, and we received our degrees on June the third, and then we departed from them after taking leave of our friends with the greatest dolour and sorrow that was ever made.

Last Will and Testament

AS MANY have gone before us, and so many yet to come will do, we, the Senior Class of 1929, depart from our Alma Mater with more serious thoughts as to the meaning of life than we entertained when we entered. Our years of college life are over, and new, like the knights of old, we go forth on a quest, the goal of which is all that seems noblest and best in the life of thought and in the life of action. In this future life we may find that the ideals we have formed, and the goals we have set seem intangible, and as evasive as the horizon. Perhaps we may often be discouraged and disappointed. But whatever our tasks may be, if we remember the precepts of college, we shall never be without a guiding light in all undertakings. For these lessons of patience, of service, and of aspiration, we wish to leave our undying gratitude, with the hope that what we accomplish in the future may be acceptable to those whom we would repay.

(Signed) Sarah Elizabeth Hinson


Miami Beach, June 6, 1923.

Dearest Lilyan:

I am now convalescing and much to Bill's chagrin, I still wish to try my luck once more in maintaining the world's record for a time-flight around this old globe of ours. You, of course, have read the accounts of my attempts and failures, but Lilyan, there is one story that I shall tell to you alone.

I had been flying some twelve hours when suddenly night closed about me - the blackest I have ever seen - and in spite of my every effort, I felt consciousness slipping from me. In my subconscious mind there seeped the sensation of downward movement and even as I sensed this, a jolt sent me reeling into oblivion.

How long I remained in this state of mind, I do not know, but when I opened my eyes, I was blinded bv penetrating light. As I became accustomed to this unnatural phenomenon, I saw- As I gazed into this crystal, before me unrolled a spectrum of human destinies.

And who do I behold first but you, Lilyan, a leader as always. You are sitting at your desk, writing "Finis" to your latest book. You are quite famous, and youth finds your frank, unmodified works much more interesting than the current fiction of the day.

Carrie Smith, now queen of cinema land, has supporting her in her latest picture, Martha Moseiy, Jessie Thorpe, Margaret Womack, Floy Brewer, Emily Smithwick, Viola Scott, Carrie Mae Ward, and Ella Smith. Virginia Perkins, star at E. C. T. C, is now John Barrymore's leading lady.

And next, the scene shifts from sunny California to our own Capital City. Here Mary Ward, Myrtle Mason and Margaret Faison hold most enviable positions in the Library of Congress. Also behind a heavily carved, pure mahogany desk, with a male secretary on her right and a reporter on her left, I see Lucile Sermons, dictating to the world, her version of the Kellogg Peace Treaty.

I see now a young day, hastening to catch a train. Reporters and photographers besiege her on all sides. It is none other than Julia Minor Wood, who is on her way to Reno to get her second divorce.

Next, I see that Bonner Swindell and Odessa Hillard are the heads of a most Exclusive School for Young Ladies. Alice Foley and Clara Mallard are joint occupants of the chair of Mathematics and Science.

As much talked of, and as popular as Lindbergh, is Evelyn Ewell. She is becoming quite famous for her modernistic interpretative dancing, and everyone, the world over, is acquiring the E. E. Method oi posing. Frequent visitors of hers are Vallie Sumrell, dean of Hillmont College, and Clyde Stokes, her assistant.

A fog descends; as it disperses, 1 see a ship steaming through the waves. On it is Annie Laurie Herring, chief dietitian; Louise Atkinson, ship hostess; and Sarah Hinson, now a doctor, who is on her way to the Aegean Islands to discover some hitherto lost aspect of past civilization.

In the Sacred Heart Hospital, in New Orleans, Mary White, quite charming in her white uniform, is head nurse and Rebecca Alexander and Catherine Hill are the welfare officers for the country.

The setting changes tn far France. Here ini the Sorbonne is Annie Shields Van Dyke. She is planning a career as interpreter for the French Ambassador from LI. S. In the same city, Wilma Cox is studying conditions - economic and social - so as to gain an accurate background for her next history textbook.

In a thriving, progressive town, I glance into a photographer's studio. Gertrude Stryon and Julia Lancaster are the proprietors, with Julia as head photographer.

My vision next shows a girl being escorted to a platform. Here she is presented with a solid gold loving cup, on which is engraved these words: "Tennis Champion of 1932." The girl is none other than our own Mary Frances Jenkins.

I see next two heads with, I suppose, one single thought. They belong to Clara Lee Spruill and Claire Jones. Together they are revising our old time geometry book so that in ten simple lessons the necessary knowledge may be acquired without study or preparation.

Along with these two aspiring geniuses is another in a different field - Irene Kahn. She is instrumental in elevating "Dorothy Dixism" to a gem of literary note. Her latest contribution is "The Heart Divine."

And then the last picture merges into being. The world is apprehensively sitting by, watching the progress of Sara Ogletree and Mary Ward as they train for the future Olympic games. Their trainers are sure of an easy, full-fledged American victory.

As the last scene faded from view, I seemed to feel myself crumple and faint. When I regained consciousness, I was on an America-bound steamer, and I remember nothing of my accident. I had a bad case of nerves for weeks after, but now I am feeling much better. Please write me again soon and tell me of your new book. Love,



Colors: Blue and Silver

Flower: Ragged Robin

Motto:"Rowing not drifting"

I sit in the deepening twilight, The shadows gathering 'round,

Half lost in idle dreaming,

In quiet unbroken by sound.

But waking me from my reverie.

Causing me deep unrest. A voice rails to me softly.

"Friend, have yon done your best:

With a start I grasp its mean ing: I reeall the tasks of the day:

I had shirked in a careless manner The tasks that came my way.

But now as rath day passes,

I make the voice a test: When I hear it speak at evening.

I know that I've done my best.

And we're resolved our goal to make. For the Freshman honor is at stake;

Let our ideal be every time,

Senior Normal Class History

FOREWORD FROM THE BEGINNING of time people have so lived that they might realize their ideals and ambitions. During the age of chivalry the greatest ambition of the youth of that time was to become worthy of the honor of knighthood - the highest symbol of honor, justice, truth, and bravery. Becoming a knight, however, was difficult, and knighthood was not a prize to be had merely for the asking. Years of preparation were necessary. Various stages along the way were known as page-hood, squire- hood, and knighl-hood. Young men were first trained at home; then they were apprenticed to a knight. A person who thus lived with a knight was known as a page. When the duties of this first stage had been successfully performed, the young page became a squire; and after a definite period had passed, if he was deemed worthy, he was dubbed a knight, the highest rank of honor. Usually each young knight had some duty to perform which brought him additional honor and fame. In the days of King Arthur, the duty of every knight was to search for the Holy Grail.

The training of young men and women today may be compared to that of the knights of long ago. After the period of home training comes higher preparation in college. Then the graduate is ready to go out into the world and test in active life the high ideals which the period of training has given him. In bravery, in high ideals, in worthy ambition, the graduate re- sembles the knight. "The institution of Chivalry is dead, but the spirit still lingers and finds its way into whatever heart is kind and gentle enough to receive it."

PART I Period of Pages "C"

In the year 1927, Sir Education let known that there was room in Castle College at Greenville, North Carolina, for several hundred pages. Now there were in the lands of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, many young persons who were in readiness to enter. In September came a host of these people well equipped to begin their duties as pages. In order that the newcomers might be distinguished from other pages at the Castle College, they were known as Pages "C".

Pages "C" were soon informed as to their various duties and were put under the command of the Knights of Psychology, English, History, and others of similar degree. These young pages were noble and ambitious; so they set to work with a determination that won them praise.

It was soon found necessary to choose a leader for Pages "C" ; so they were called together, and after much testing it was found that Page Batson was the most fit for the position. They chose for a motto by which to model their lives, this inscription, "Non sibi sed omnibus." They chose for their favored colors, blue and yellow, symbols of truth and light.

Along with the work of pages always came much feasting and frolicking together so that thev might learn to be gentle, courteous, and friendly. The first of such affairs at the Castle College was known as "Welcome Festival," which was given soon after the admission of the new pages. Later in the year 1928 Pages "C" entertained Squires "D" with a similar festival.

In order that rivalry and gallantry might be early installed in the hearts and minds of the pages they were privileged to join one of the orders of honor, the Order of the Laniers, the Emersons, or the Poes.

The greatest enjoyment that can come into the life of a page is to be allowed to participate in a tournament. Now Sir Education was kind, and he provided a Tournament of Basketball for his people. Great was the excitement, and long was the period of preparation. When the

day dawned pages, squires, and knights from far and near came young Pages "C", sound in body and in mind, went away to battle The rest of the day was spent in feasting and merry making.

As the close of the stage of Pages "C" drew nigh, many were deemed worthy of reward, and had bestowed upon them titles of honor. A half score of Pages "C" were given the shield of Athletics, a monogram much to be desired, as a reward for perseverance in play. Others were

first stage of this period is known as "Practice Teaching." Here, as before, Squires "D" proved their worth and won the honors. The second stage, known as "Examinations," was the most dif- ficult of all. Long was the period of study and preparation, and successful were the results. The squires were now ready for the greatest honor of their lives, knighthood.

PART III Period of the Knight June 3, 1929, was the appointed day for the ceremonies. When the memorable day dawned, several hundred Squires "D" rose quite early and donned their festive robes, which had been prepared for this service. When all was ready, these fine young squires marched in a long pro- cession to the chapel of Castle College. Sir Knight Wright, the noblest and best of all the knights, was master of ceremonies. He called the Squires by name to come before him, and, after due ceremony, pronounced them Knights, and presented them with the good sword, Diploma. Each new knight was now ready to go forth over the Land of America in search of Life and Happiness.

STRANGE things happen to us sometimes, and mysterious GIFTS ARE APT TO FALL OUT OF EVERYWHERE everywhere" into our hands, just when we least expect them. I had said I would never again be surprised at anything, but when a newspaper dropped into my lap from the very air above me, I was willing to take back the rash statement I had made. My amazement increased when I read the name and date, "Teco Echo, June 3, 1950." Where did it come from? And what could it all signify to me?

I was never one to remain in suspense when the means of gratifying my curiosity was at hand; so I opened the paper hastily. From the records of thirty-one years yet unborn I shall quote some of the things I read.

The Normal Class of 1929 of East Carolina Teachers' College has brought to its Alma Mater glory and honor. The work of the Science Department has won the respect and admiration of all the world. The first trip to Mars, a most wonderful feat, was accomplished by members of this class.

The work of the teachers of this class has been such a wonderful suc- cess that every institution in the civilized world accords her due honor and lauds the work of her graduates. One of them has indeed discovered the royal road to learning, by succeeding in giving subject matter hypo- dermically to morons. Thousands of children have been educated as a result of this great discovery.

The history students of this class have done great research work. One of them has written a famous history of the arctic regions.

These are only a few of the many things which the Class of 1929 had accomplished. The whole paper was filled with accounts of the many great things that they had done.

These items are most interesting to me, so I pass them on to you and am glad to share with you this remarkable find of mine, that it may answer for, as satisfactorily as it did for me, the all-important question, "What is going to become of the Normal Class of 1929?"

Idyl Three....Ye Court

The Ladies of the Court

IN days of old the lady of the court teas almost "too high for adoration." For her the knight journeyed forth on perilous quest; for her many a lance was broken in tournament, and many a shield hacked in battle. To win her bright smile the knight sine many dragons and fire-breathing monsters, and the protection of damsels in distress he made one of his strictest vows.

Nor was the lady unworthy of this deep esteem. In Arthur's Court the beauty, the charm, the wit of the world were assembled. Lissome Vivien, White Elaine, Gentle Enid, Guinevere, queen of beauty: where shall we see their like again?

In modern times women no longer live in courts: knights break for them no lances in tourney: there are no fire-breathing monsters to be slain; and, alas, where shall we find a tender damsel in distress? Yet in these latter days those qualities which once made women so revered, so admired, survive. In the modern girl ice see repeated the finer qualities of the lady of chivalry. Beauty, loyalty, sincerity, charm, grace, and wit are ever the same. The modern girl, ice feel, is peerless; and so we pre- sent to you our ladies of the court.

The Teco Echo

HE TECO ECHO, the bi-monthly publication of East Carolina Teachers' College, had its beginning in 1925. At that time the college had no newspaper edited by the stu- t body. Since, however, a desire for college news pub- lished by the college community was felt, a special vote of the entire stu- dent body provided for the establishment of a semi-monthly newspaper.

The name for the publication was chosen by a contest. A reward of five dollars was offered to the student submitting the best and most appro- priate name. Miss Christine Vick, at that time a member of the Senior Class and president of the student body, won the prize. The name was derived from (Te)achers (Co) liege with the "Echo" added.

In 1926, the publication was admitted into the North Carolina Colle- giate Press Association, and has had two representatives, the editor and the business manager, at each meeting of the organization since that time.

Since 1926, the Teco Echo has been a member of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association of New York City. The two members of the staff previously mentioned are sent to each of the annual meetings. The Teco Echo won fourth place in the contest of the C. S. P. A. in 1928. Those who have represented the publication are Frances Smith and Deanie Boone Haskett, Zilpah Frisbie and Catharine Clark, Bessie Willis and Margie Caldwell, and Rebecca Alexander and Irene Kahn.

The faculty advisers are Miss Mamie E. Jenkins for the editorial staff and Mr. M. L. Wright for the business staff.

Now you have come to the end of the 1929 Tecoan. We hope that you have enjoyed your first acquaintance with the book and that every picture has brought to your mind some cherished memory of happy hours at East Carolina Teachers College.

Annuals are not made for only one reading, however; they are friends which become more precious with the passing years. We believe that you will pore over these pages many times in the future. As the days depicted here creep further and further into the past, we hope that in this volume you will find that which you most wish to remember about your college life. We have made the book, hoping that it will be a lasting joy to you. May you find it so.
