The Tecoan 1933














Year Book of


Greenville N.C.


Book I


Book II


Book III


Book IV



Within the memory of many now living the ships that braved the seas were the only bearers of messages between the nations of the world.

Today, friendly international relations are fostered also by cable, telephone and radio and the world is better because of such communications



America has blended the traits of her parent and contributed a sense of justice and order; France gave gaiety and a love beauty: from Germany came scientific and inventive genius, while Holland's share is expressed in the honest home-loving of her people. The other countries have each added marks, and from the spirit of all our nation has grown.

Even in so small a group as we find on this campus these different nations are clearly seen. Not only because the modern world is closer together than ever before, making all nations neighbors, but als because we feel the forces of other nations a part of us, we offer the Tecoan this year as a World Book


To the people of Greenville, the little city in which our vision of international affairs has been broadened and associations so pleasant this


is dedicated in friendship

and understanding

Ione Hooker Bradsher Senior Class Mascot

Colors: Green and White

Flower: Lily-of-Valley

Motto: "To strive; to seek; to find; but not to yield"


"To Strive; to seek; to find,

But not to yield--"

The Senior class has bound

Itself to this ordeal.

No conquerous great are we

In fields unknown,

Yet ever do we say

Alma Mater, lead on.

To you, O Alma Mater,

We owe our all;

To you we pledge ourselves;

We heed your call.

You gave to us the best

You had to give;

You thoughts of us came first;

That we might live.

When college days are done you bid

Us live abundantly.

Yet we would walk with you awhile,

This class of '33

THE rain came down in torrents. One look at the downpour made a person want to curl up on the sofa and sleep.

To those of us who were entering East Carolina Teachers College for the first time, the day was particularly dreary. Those red brick buildings cast a spirit of gloom over us; we felt as if we were being carried to prison. The only relief to our downcast spirits came from the Y. W. C. A. cabinet girls who kindly helped us fill out our cards and showed us to our rooms.

The first few days were terrible. How we disliked the endless routine of having our lives regulated by bells! Every day had to adhere to a certain schedule. But gradually we adjusted ourselves to the bells and other features of college and accepted the campus as our home.

We had only one thing to dread - initiation. The horrible week tame, and to our astonishment it was fun.

With Margaret Murchison as president we started to work. Did I say work? I believe I did. And I suppose we did have to put forth some effort in preparing our lessons but not enough to keep us from exercising our few privileges. In spite of the great many regulations that we had to adhere to, we enjoyed the parties and entertainments that we attended. The Juniors gave us a kid-party, and in return we gave them a St. Patrick's Day Party. Among the entertainments we enjoyed were the United States Band, the North Carolina Playmakers, and the Isadore Duncan Dancers.

The fall of 1930 found most of us back at E. C. T. C. This year we chose Elizabeth Biddle as president. Spalding Kryl's Band, and other entertainments relieved the monotony of school work. We had delightful Senior-Sophomore and Sophomore-Senior parties. But the life of a Sophomore isn't so thrilling.

Then came our most important year. As Juniors we were given more privileges: we could sit nearer President Wright in chapel ; we could go down the street any afternoon; and we were respected by the Sophomores and Freshmen. With our president Loree Cagle and our advisers, Dr. Slay and Miss Bonnewitz to help us, we began making plans for the banquet.

Margaret Murchison attended a National Student's Association and brought back many helpful suggestions for our campus. We heard Galli Curci and the Don Cossacks.

The summer vacation passed quickly, and we came back as Seniors. Was this E. C. T. C, or was it fairyland? Here we were with the new Senior privileges, the Senior dignity, and the Senior responsibility. Soon we realized that the Seniors were the busiest yet the happiest people in college. Practice-teaching, school work, and outside activities kept us as busy as bees, and by keeping us busy kept us happy.

Our Senior play, "The Charm School" showed the audience what splendid actors and actresses the class has.

Event followed event; everything seemed important. The Juniors gave a banquet which we can never forget. Spring came, and we went on a camping trip to Bayview. Don't ask us what we did.

And now we have almost completed the college chapter of our history. We are glad to graduate, and yet we look back over the happy days we have spent here with regrets.

My goodness ! It is ten o'clock. Commencement begins at eleven. We must don our caps and gowns, the symbols of Senior dignity, and go forth to receive our degrees.



WE, the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-three, on the eve of graduatic do hereby make this our last will and testament.

To our Alma Mater we bequeath our undying love and gratitude for all she has done to train us in lessons of patience, of service, of happy cooperation, and of aspiration, from the care-free thoughtlessness of our freshman year to the more serious and appreciative attitude of today.

To the faculty and officers of administration we bequeath our gratitude for many pleasant memories we have of our years at college and for their sympathy and understanding both in and out of class.

To the Juniors we bequeath all the privileges, trials, happiness and hopes of a Senior.

To the Sophomores, our sister class, we bequeath our studious qualities and the assurance of our interest in their future successes.

To the Freshmen, we bequeath all the optimism and self-assurance of our Sophomore year.

We bequeath to those coming after us all those intangible things which go to make life great, good, happy, beautiful:

Honor, so that the children of our Alma Mater may face the world unashamed. The Spirit of Service, the highest ideal of our Alma Mater;

Faith in ourselves and in others, and in the ultimate worth-whileness of life ; Courage, not mere physical bravery but the mental and moral courage to go against the crowd, if need be, and to face the world unafraid ;

Ambition to live not merely a good life but a full and complete life, one of definite, worthy of purposes and accomplishments ;

A Love of Beauty, not only of form and color but in the souls and deeds of men ; and finally ;

An Outlook on Life that is both broad and deep, brightened with happiness, and softened by pity and understanding.

Signed on this sixth day of June, one thousand nine hundred thirty-three, A.D., at East Carolina Teachers College, Greenville, North Carolina.

To strive for all the highest, best, and truest;

To seek for every good that may be gained;

To find a wealth of hidden truth and widsom;

And not to yield a point we have attained;

To work for joy of working, but as duty;

To hold securely to a fair ideal;

To have a lofty goal, and then to reach it,

To keep ourlives aglow with faith and zeal--

This is our aim, and always we shall follow

The moving star that travels toward success,

The star that calls to honor and achievement,

To worthy life, and will accept no less.

Joan Bloom Sophomore Class Mascot

Colors: Gold and White

Flower: Daisy

Motto: "Not to the top but climbing"


I think that there was n'er alive

A class as good as '35

A class whose aims and ideals high,

Meant "do your very best or die."

A class, who in a losing game,

Could boast the winning class to fame.

Our class is made of fools like me.

But its fame shall live eternally.

(With apologies to Joyce Kilmer.)

Colors: Lavender and Pea

Motto: "Upward and Onward"


Apollo had driven his fiery chariot

Into its purple sapphire gate

When before me in strange array

Passed a procession of white-gowned ladies

Decked with daisies white and gay.

On went the march of the procession strange

While I followed in its wake;

On went the daisy-bedecked ladies

To Education's massive gate.

Each lady bowed and left a flower

For a token as she passed through;

Each daisy took root in Learning's bower

Under a garden of daisies grew.

Through Time, goes the scattering of daisies

In rows from left to right;

Till Eternity's end, will the ladies

Make their Harvest daisy-white

AS we sit fondly fingering our well-worn memory books which are really scrapbooks containing autographs, cartoons, souveniers, and a bit of a diary - all dating from the never-to-be-forgotten day of September 28, 1931, what a floodgate of memories - memories that bless and burn - are awakened ! How beautiful are some of the pictures that hang in Memory's Hall. How comical are some of the recollections of those First Days at college.

We were one hundred fiifteen in number as we entered the doors of our favorite Shrine to Knowledge, dear old East Carolina Teachers College. From all arts of North Carolina we hailed jolly girls, sad girls, big girls, little girls, brave girls and timid girls.

Parties, teas, mass meetings and registering, together with getting acquainted with each other, occupied our first few days.

Soon we were meeting classes (not the hopes and ambitions our instructors had for us)! To those first questions the answers quite frequently were. "Teacher, I don't know."

Then came INITIATION ! Not one among our number but had enlarged imaginations, anticipations (and in some cases apprehensions) concerning this event. Each resolved inwardly to assume the nonchalant attitude and appear as sensible as green "C's" could. Alas! like "best laid plans of mice and men," ours too, went astray - arrayed in many petticoats, rouged noses, adorned by alarming clocks, wear- ing slickers, carrying umbrellas, we must have been an attractive group! But altogether it was lots of fun. and having experienced it. we saw to it that the incoming 1933 society members derived full benefit and had something to write home about.

Then came Thanksgiving. Home and friends never seemed dearer. As we packed our bags in eager haste we forgot the tears we had shed; our hearts forgot the aches it had had. Everyone was happy. Although the holidays passed very quickly we brought back with us many pleasant memories.

As we turn other pages, bits of programs, a line jotted here and there remind us anew of some of the wonderful things the college provided in the way of entertainment. We shall long remember the Don Cossack Russian Male Chorus. Galli Curci, The Abbey Theater Irish Players, Harold Kreutzherg and his Dancing Group -how we enjoyed them!

Almost before we knew it we were handing in our spring finals, and asking ourselves anew, "What is so rare as a day in June?" For were we not eager for our promising vacation?

We entered our senior year one hundred sixty-four in number. Visions of practice teaching became realities, and many, many times did we hear that "Teacher, I don't know" - it sounds different too, when one says it and it's said to one !

The outstanding entertainment during the first term was the delightful show performed by Doris Kenyon. She sang in many different languages and expressed her wonderful personality in all of it.

We have enjoyed many motion pictures shown in Austin Hall on Saturday evenings. Nor must we leave our Ex-Governor Gardner and the various speakers who from time to time have inspired us to better effort by their messages.

Graduation - the goal for which we have zealously labored - approaches ! We must soon say that pathos-filled word "Farewell" as we part from the sunshine of accomplishment and temporary clouds of disappointment in some of our work.

On the very last page is pasted an invitation to one Graduating Exercise. We are elated yet,

"A feeling of sadness comes o'er me That my soul cannot refrain. And resembles sorrow only As the mists resemble rain.''

As we think of parting from those who have been closely associated with us, both in our classes and on the campus, we think of this selection:

'Here awa and there awa,

Up the world and doon, You and I are going friend.

Under sun and moon; Whether roads divide or no.

Whether alone or met, Whether we hail or bid farewell-

Oh, dinna forget !"

And now to teachers, friends, and members of Senior Normal Class of 1933 in the words of Tiney Tim, "God Bless us all!"


State of North Carolina County of Pitt Town of Greenville

WE, the Senior Normal Class of nineteen hundred thirty-three, while on the eve of our graduation, look back with love and loyalty for our Alma Mater, do hereby make and declare our Last Will and Testament.

We bequeath:

To the Faculty, our most sincere wishes that the "Depression" come to an end in the near future, as we ourselves hope to become faculty members soon, and we feel that we shall be able to sympathize with them regarding such matters.

To our Parents, we devote our future lives with the desire that we do all we can to repay them for what they have done for us. To the Junior-Normal Class:

First, our charm and teaching personality that are such essential assets at the Training School ;

Second, a full supply of notebooks, note-cards, and files;

Third, the beloved privilege of sharing in the persecution of the new society members, as you have been persecuted this year;

Fourth, our chapel seats at the front of the auditorium.

To all concerned, a clear field, as far as we are concerned, in pursuit of our irresistible co-eds.

Our Class in approximation

Until our work is done;

For we want our memory here

To be a grand and brilliant one!

VISIONS created by the imagination precede the achievement of any really great accomplishment. The ability to weave the threads of imagination into the finished fabric is equally important.

It has been the prvilege of the EDWARDS and BROUGHTON COMPANY to cooperate with the TECOAN staff in creating their vision into material form.

Such cooperation is one of the "visions" which precede the building of a successful business, and is a part of the working policy of the EDWARDS and BROUGHTON COMPANY.

To those Staffs desiring complete cooperation, we offer unexcelled service.

You, too, may be proud of your annual.
