To Mr. Dean Tabor, teacher and friend, we, the students of East Carolina Teachers College, affectionately dedicate the 1940 edition of the Tecoan.

You are leaving College at a critical period in the world's history; but if conditions are bad, your opportunities are equally as great. Few people possess the power, the ability to alter the situation as do you. There is a conflict be- tween democratic and autocratic ideals. Enter this conflict; choose wisely from the values at your disposal; set standards that are high; encourage group think- ing and group leadership as opposed to dictatorship. Only in this way can the people continue to control and operate their social and economic plans.

May the future hold for you happiness and success.

Leon R. Meadows


Nail to the masthead of your life the motto of your State, "To be rather than to seem to be," and you will find yourself far along the road to happiness and success.


Successful life cannot be ex- pressed in terms of amusement, wealth, notoriety, popularity, or even goodness. To unselfishly love, labor with, and serve man- kind lifts one out of the com- monplace into the realm of com- plete and abundant living. The profession of teaching capitalizes the possibilities of life.

As usual, in this section of the yearbook, we have attempted to include snapshots depicting life on out campus during the past year. We wish to thank the large number of students who have helped us in compiling this section.

AT E. C. T. C.

Highlighting this page is the picture at the right of our swing band in action - in, believe it or not, the student council room. Notice also the industrious girls doing industrial work in the Industrial Arts Department.


m iv j



The top picture at the left is of that newly organized bunch of intellectuals that calls itself the commerce sorority, under the alias of some Greek name. As the pictures are evidence, we are proud of our snow (no connection to the commerce sorority) .

AT E. C. T. C.

More campus scenery - outdoor fire place at the lake; bird bath and inhabitant; the campus fort (i.e. the eight-incher), and its marksman; clansmen; more snow; Romeo and Broughton.


Here we have hikers to the lake (one-tenth milers), fire-escapers, another snow-maiden, posturesque band members, loafers, foot-scratchers, and what not.

AT E. C. T. C.

It takes all kinds to fill a page, as this one is easily evidence. The staff was unable to find out to whom the infant belonged, but since it bore resemblance to numerous people, we decided it deserved a place in the book along with the other freshmen.

The Women's Student Government Association is an organization to which all women students of the college automatically belong. The purpose of this organization is to develop student honor and self-control, and to promote high ideals and a sense of responsibility among the students of the college.


Contacts with other campuses have been made through delegates who attended the National Student Federation Congress at the University of Minnesota, at Minne- apolis; the Southern Inter-Collegiate Association at Shorter College, Rome, Georgia; the North Carolina Federation of Students at the University of North Carolina; and the Southern Conference at New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Council of the Men's Student Govern- ment Association has strived diligently this year to promote all objectives in the interest of the men's student body. Acting under the authority of power vested in this body by men students, the Council undertook the task of revising the old constitution of the Men's Student Government Association. A United States flag was purchased from its appropri- ation, and it is flown daily on the front campus.


The men students on the campus are still gaining in number, and with the growth of the Men's Student Body, the council that guides it must also grow. Higher ideals of democracy, wisdom, and fairness are all symbols of growth in a student body, and these, carefully handled, can be the mainstay of student government.

Through its Sunday and Friday evening vesper services, the Y. W. C. A. this year has attempted to realize its purpose - to make for its members a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. Among the outstanding speakers at these services have been Mrs. Mildred Morgan, University of Iowa; Dr. Hornell Hart, Duke University; and Madame Sheu-Riesz of Chapel Hill, N. C.

Deputation teams from Meredith College and North Carolina State have contributed to our programs, while we, in turn, have sent representatives to take part in their religious activities. Candle-


lighting services have helped make our organization more inspirational and more beautiful for the student body.

Delegates from the association have attended all conferences of the Stu- dent Christian Movement of the state and, in the spring, delegates attended the leadership conference held at Blue Ridge, N. C.

The Y. M.- C. A. was organized in the spring of 1939. It has for its purpose the realization of a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. The Y. M. and Y. W. have co- operated in bringing about this purpose through vesper services. Among the outstanding speakers of the year were Mrs. Mildred Morgan, who spoke on men and women relations, and Mr. Wiley Critz, Southeastern Y. M C. A. secretary.

The organization is a member of the Inter-racial Group of the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A.'s of the State. Last summer the "Y" sent two delegates to the Southeastern Regional Conference at


Blue Ridge. We have also taken part in the State "Y" conferences in Raleigh and Durham this year. One of the outstanding entertainments was a square dance given in the fall. It is the hope of those who have been its founders, that our "Y" will steadily push forward, fulfilling its purpose, until every boy on our campus has been reached.

The Junior "Y" Cabinet, as a co-worker with the Senior "Y" Cabinet, has played an important part in the Young Women's Christian Associ- ation on our campus. They have helped the success of this organization by participating in Friday and Sunday evening vespers, and actively attending morning watch. Their success is due largely to the chairman, and to Margaret Law- rence, cabinet adviser.


The Science Club during the years 1939-40 has made much progress through the coopera- tion of its officers, members and advisors. The club has sponsored a variety of interesting pro- grams given by students and outside speakers. Interest has been created in the study of Science Museums. During the spring term the club plans to do actual museum work. The annual club trip will complete the year's program.

The aim and purpose of the Science Club is to inspire science students and to stimulate in them a desire for a deeper, more meaningful study, and to challenge them to become more conscious of the scientific world.

The Verse Speaking Choir is an organization three years old. Though identified with the English Club, it draws its membership from the entire student body, and since its beginning has had about seventy students actively interested in its work. Programs have been given for the English Club, for chapel and Y. W. C. A. exer- cises, and for the Third Street and the Green- \ille High Schools.

Miss Mary Greene Director


The purpose of the Alumni Daughters and Sons of East Carolina Teachers College is to develop loyalty, to promote a closer feeling of friendship among the sons and daughters of the alumni, and to preserve the memory of the students of the past.

The main event of the year was the tea given by the club for all alumni who returned for Commencement.

Anita Daughtridge President


The English Club his had entertaining and instruc- tive monthly programs throughout this college year. The club, at the invitation of the Poe Society, was cc-spcnscr in bringing to our campus Miss F. Mere- dith Dietz, Editor of The Southern Literary Messenger. It organized and sponsors the Verse-Speaking Choir, under the leadership of Miss Mary Greene. Other grcups of rr.cmbers are working on dramatics and creative writing.

The well-equipped club laboratory is a constant help to the English majors. Among the most important parti of the equipment, ether than books, are three large filing cabinets of clippings and pictures, a dupli- cator, projector, and a recording machine.

Mattie Lee Jackson President


The Mathematics Club, with the help of its advisors, Miss Maria D. Graham, Miss Louise Williams, and Miss Elizabeth England, a newcomer to our depart- ment, has completed another successful year at East Carolina Teachers College. Our aim for more student programs and better attendance, has been fulfilled. The purposes of the club, which are: to appreciate the wonder and greatness of mathematics and how it has come to be what it is today, as well as, to explore the recreational side of life, have been carried out in the programs under the direction of the Vice-President, Julius Abernathy.

Ruth Gi.enn Ha President


The Home Economics Club has as its motto: "Serv- ing our community, our schools and our families". From this motto came the club's purpose: To develop personality, leadership, initiative, and poise. During the year outstanding speakers have been: Mrs. Stella R. Cusick, assistant Farm Administrator from Raleigh, who spoke of Farm Security work in North Carolina; Miss Mamie E. Jenkins of the college faculty, who spoke on her trip to Europe; and Mrs. Adelaide E. Bloxton of the Home Economics faculty who spoke on the early history and significance of Williamsburg.

Camille B. Clarke President

A club bulletin was edited and sent to some of the recent alumnae of the club. Delegates were sent to the North Carolina Association of Student Home Economics Clubs at Queens-Chicora College, Char- lotte. Agnes Watson, one of our members was chosen state president. The 1940 meeting of this association will be held at East Carolina Teachers College November 15-16.


"The purpose of this organization shall be to gather and disseminate knowledge of the movement for the education of young children; to bring into active cooperation all child- hood education interests, including parent education; in nursery school, kindergarten and primary grades, and to raise the standard of the professional training for teachers and leaders in this field."

Article II, A. C. E. Constitution

Studio group activities, outstanding speakers, and informal socials - all of these - provide opportunity for growth, both professionally and socially.

Among the speakers during the year was Dr. Hornell Hart, Professor of Social Ethics at Duke University, who was brought to our campus by the A. C. E., with the co- sponsorship of the Y. W. C. A.

This student branch was selected to edit the first North Carolina Branch News Bulletin, which was distributed among the fifteen state branches this year.

The following compose tbe executive board for the ninety- seven members: Mary Lou Butner. President: Ada Rose Vow. Vice-President: rase Davis. Secretary -Treasurer; Anna M. hnl.ii. publications Representative; Mary Agnes Deal. Re- porter; Mary Frances Hardy, Hazel Owens. Katrine Collie.

The Commerce Club has made its aim this year the in- creasing of interest in professional work and teaching.

At the regular monthly meetings, programs which will give some insight into business conditions, explain what the business world expects of those who enter this field, and how the commercial teacher can prepare others to meet these needs are presented. They have included social as well as educational entertainment.

One of the main projects for this year has been collecting articles of commercial interest for a museum in the Com- mercial Department.

The Club has also been active in organizing the Zeta Delta Chapter of Alpha Iota Sorority - an international honorary business sorority - on the campus. This chapter was offi- cially installed on March 30 at an installation banquet. The Zeta Delta has twenty-four charter members and with Miss Velma Lowe and Miss Lena C. Ellis as sponsors great things are expected of this organization in the future. A group picture of the sorority appears in the snapshot section of this volume.


Phi Sigma Chapter

Organized in 192 5 under the name "Le Cercle Francais," the French Club of East Carolina Teachers College began its work with the purpose of encouraging the study of French, and fostering and developing a spirit of friendship among its members. Later the club adopted the name "Phi Sigma."

Last year we joined the Sigma Pi Alpha, national honor fraternity for students of foreign languages, and we have had a big part in its work this year. Professor R. C. Deal, head of the French department was elected National Presi- dent of the fraternity for this year, and we also had the honor of being host to the National Congress which met on our campus April 20, 1940.

Members of the organization have enjoyed many social hours, including a weiner roast at Mr. and Mrs. Deal's.

The Phi Sigma Pi, national honorary educational fraternity, has completed another milestone in educational progressiveness, and in campus activities for 1939-40.

Among the principal undertakings of the fraternity this year were the annual carnival; the presentation of "Peck vs. Peck", a courtroom farce in one act, and the Founders' Day program on May 1 1.

The fraternity is composed of members who strive to promote a feeling of brotherhood and use the light of knowledge as their guiding star.


This clandestine commhtee, little-known and less cared about, herewith betrays to the public its deep and dark secrets in the form of purpose and function. It certifies eligibles for publica- tions offices, and is responsible, no more, no less, for the actions of those two bodies - The Teco Echo, and The Tecoan. Latest to join the ranks of the scribblers and photo-snappers is the Pieces

versa. Although the magazine isn't responsible for until next year, it is already a member of the board in body and spirit.

While the orchestra of East Carolina Teachers College has been organized as an indispensable unit for prospective music teachers in a state whose strides in the field of music during the last few years have been immense, it still provides an en- joyable as well as a profitable source of activity for college students and teachers as well. It has fostered the love of good music during this year more than ever before through playing for chapel programs, plays, and various other functions on the campus.

The joy of singing in harmony is especially en- hanced by the association of comradeship men find in such organizations as this. United in presenting the music to be rended, these men have felt the thrill of musical achievement on numerous occa- sions on and off the campus during the past year.

The Women's Glee Club plays a definite part in musical activities of the college life. It presents various seasonal performances during the year, outstanding among which are the Christmas and Easter programs sung a cappella. The club contributes to chapel programs and lends inspiration to important college days and events.

In the fall of 1939 the International Relations Club was formed on the campus by merging the History and the Social Science Clubs. The purpose of the club is to encourage the study of inter- national relations in affiliation with the Carnegie Endowment cf International Peace.

During the year various programs were pre- sented by students who debated, lectured, and gave book reviews on international relations.

One of the highlights of the year's activities was of the International Relation Clubs' held at Chapel Hill,


The Ki Pi Players is composed of about fifty members. The purpose of this club is to give its members practical experience in the interpreting and producing of out- standing plays, to promote interest in the dramatic activities of the school, to develop the creative talent of the students of the school, to encourage the reading and witness- ing of better plays, and to promote an enthusiasm for the drama in all its phases.

During the 1940 program, the club sponsored several one-act plays, with their major production coming in the spring quarter. The Ki Pi Players is a member of the Carolina Dramatics Association and the Alpha Psi Omega, a national honorary dramat- ics fraternity. Ethel Gaston, president of the group is pictured standing in front of the members photographed below.

In the spring of 1939 the Robert H. Wright Chapter of the Future Teachers of America was organized through the guidance of its sponsor, Miss Emma L. Hooper. Our club is affiliated with the National Education Association. The purpose of the club is to give teachers in training practical experience in working together in a democratic way on the problems of the profession. Programs in the club this year have included social entertain- ment as well as educational discussion.


Although the Pieces

of Eight made its de- but in the spring of 1939, it was not pre- sented to the students until the fall of '39. During the past year it has financed itself, and kept under con- trol by its own power. Next year this humor-literary magazine will reach every stu- dent, and become an E. C. T. C. publication in its own right. This spring it braved the terrors of the deep and became, by student approval, a member of the Publications Board, that unknown quantity mentioned elsewhere in this pretentious pamphlet.

The policy of the Teco Echo this year has been to make the publication the voice of the students through its news stories, open forum, and editorials. During the year there have been five special editions. The first came in the fall quarter before the Varsity Club play. Before the senior play, "St.ige Door," the second special issue was pub- lished. The third special issue was in the form of an eight-page homecoming, dedication, and good will issue, of which over 3,000 copies were distributed over Green- ville and to the visitors on the campus on dedication day. In the spring quarter two special issues were published ; one being an April Fool issue which was distributed over the campus in addition to the regular issue which was distributed later in the week. Also an Alumni issue was published and distributed to approximately 1,600 former students.

With success as its goal, the Emerson Society has done much during the year 1939-40 to carry forth the success of its previous years.

The high lights of our year have been: an in- formal dance given for the freshmen, the one- act play, "Girls in White," and the sponsorship of the winter dance. All of these were great successes - thanks to our loyal Emersons.

Throughout this year, we have tried to enrich our lives with the more beautiful works of lit- erature and on the whole we consider this year a real success - a year each Emerson may well be proud of.

During the school year of 1939-40, the Edgar Allan Poe Literary Society tried to grow in mem- bership, appreciation of music, art, and literature, and in prestige on the campus.

Three of our outstanding activities were: one, a very successful dance, having sponsors for the first time here; two, speeches by Miss F. Meredith Deitz, editor of the Southern Literary Messenger, who was here for three days, and ; three, a one- act play, "Sanatorium," which won the silver lov- ing cup in the contest between the three societies. WGTC, the new radio station in Greenville, asked the Poe Society to give a program on the air, rep- resenting the organizations on the campus.

The worthy purpose for which Sidney Lanier himself lived - those are the ideals ever before the loyal members of the Lanier Society. We began our work for the year by a friendly wel- come to the freshman class of 1939-40 through an outdoor supper at the college lake. Terminating the comical initiation of the new members, they enjoyed a delightful social hour.

One of the highlights of the year was the Inter- Society one-act play contest in which our talent was well recognized. Our programs for monthly meetings are always planned for their literary interest as well as entertainment for the members.

Under the sponsorship of the Lanier Society, the spring dance, through its original planning, excellent orchestra was the greatest success of the year.

The Varsity Club draws its members from lettermen in the various sports on the campus: football, basketball, base- ball, boxing, and tennis. This year for the first time monogram sweaters were awarded to boys earning them in tennis, one of the minor sports.

Outstanding among the club's ac- tivities this year were: the Varsity Club play, "The Milky Way," at which the "Varsity Club Sweetheart" was crowned, and the third annual Varsity Club dance, centered around the club sweetheart, Miss Jean Wendt.


The 1939 edition of the Pirate football squad assembled at the college two weeks before school opened for what they hoped would be one of their best seasons. The squad, although not large in size or number was an average small college squad and with several lettermen returning to form a nucleus, prospects looked better than they had for the past three years.

After about two weeks training and only a week before the opening game injuries began to occur that put a damper on the spirits of everyone concerned. Two lettermen went out for the season with injured knees.

During the entire season the squad was never at full strength and conse- quently suffered reverse after reverse in many hard fought games.

Although the team from a winning standpoint, was far from successful, valuable experience was gained, and without abnormal injuries next year's prospects are already looking brighter.

Coach O. A. Hankner opened his coaching career on the campus with a tough schedule facing him, and in spite of injuries and other handicaps facing him, guided the squad through the season, often beaten, but unconquered in spirit.

Coach "Bo" Farley's East Carolina Pirates concluded a relatively successful basket- ball season here the last of February with a 67-51 victory over Langley Field*s Aces. Though the Pirates piled up an early advantage, the game was a hard fought one. Lautares, Brock, and Shelton were high scorers.

Among the hard fought games high-lighting the season, the traditional battle with Atlantic Christian ranks among the highest. After the furious battle was over, the score- board showed 49 to 46 as the final score. Causing considerable student interest was the fact that the victory entitled the Pirates to retain the Bohunk trophy - a prize fought over by the rival teams from year to year.

A victory over Westinghouse Apprentice team rated considerable cheering and excitement due to the fact that the Pirates entered the game as underdogs, and then emerged victorious with a score of 51-44. Brock, rangy center, paced the Pirates with a total of 19 points.

Coach Gordon Gilbert's Pirates got off to a bad start for the 1939 season, by dropping the first game to Campbell College's nine to the tune of 13-5. Joe Hatem and Floyd Hinton led the Teachers in hits.

During the remainder of the season the Pirates picked up considerably. On April 10 and 11, the Pirates split a pair of games with the High Point College nine. In the first game Earl Smith, Bill Shelton, and Floyd Hinton led the Teachers as they walked away with the game, 22-3, to Kelly Martin's pitching. The following day they dropped a close game to the same nine. Results: 9-8. On April 23, the Pirates dropped another close one to The Atlantic Christian Bulldogs, 10-9.

In close succession, the Pirates defeated William and Mary (Norfolk Division), 16 to 1; Louisburg's Trojans, 4 to 1; and the Middies of the United States Naval Base (Norfolk), 10 to 9.

As a whole the season was rather a successful one for the Pirates, although during the last week of the season, they dropped games to High Point, split a two-game series with West Carolina. Bright spot in closing the season was the win over the Norfolk Naval Base May 13, 10-9.


Due to insufficient participation and interest, no boxing matches were scheduled this year. The boys pictured above trained up until the last minute, when plans were finally and definitely dropped, thereby earning a place in the yearbook. Fleming and Chadwick, the first two on the front row are both Golden Gloves state champions.


The boys tennis team, composed of Charles Harris, Louis Wilkerson, Douglas Glover, Leo Burks, Charles Greene, and Leon Meadows beat Louisburg College's team 5 to 3, and lost the return match 5 to 4.

On May 6, darkness halted a match with Oak Ridge Military Academy, with the score 4-4.

In subsequent matches they defeated Atlantic Christian 9-0; Appalachian 5-2; and a match with Wake Forest was halted by darkness with Wake Forest in the lead, 6-1.


The girls tennis team scheduled only three matches ; one home game, with Long Island University, and two with Blackstone Junior College, at Blackstone, Va.

The Long Island game was canceled, and the girls won the two Virginia matches by a wide margin.

On the team were Nancy Albright, Ruth Parker, Mary Frances Byrd, Dorothy Dalrymple, and Prue Newby.

The Women's Athletic Association sponsors the intra-mural sports of basketball, volley ball, and tennis, besides promoting interest in field, track, and play days.

Special divisions of the club embrace the sports of Softball, basketball, croquet, tennis, horseshoes, soccer, hiking, table tennis, and archery. College letters, sweaters, and an intramural medal reward outstanding work in these fields.


Usually unpictured are the drudgeries undergone in preparing for a game of tennis. These pictures were unposed (notice the barefooted girl adjusting the net), and therefore should picture truthfully the preparation for, and the playing of a game of tennis.

This year the intercollegiate program for girls' athletics has been dropped to make way for more intramural activities. The purpose in mind is to provide some form of sport for all members of the student body. Another is to develop a cooperative spirit among the different members. A larger number of students are participating in these sports this year and additional events have been added to the Intra-mural program.

The heads of these departments, under the capable advisorship of Miss Helen McElwain carefully plan out programs for their various departments. Play nights were held throughout the year during which large numbers of students played volley ball, badminton, shutfleboard, indoor tennis, target shooting, etc.

In the spring and fall week-end hikes were planned, and tennis, Softball, archery, soccer and other outdoor sports were given much attention.

The softball team was newly organized on the campus last spring, and this group comprises the charter members.


The soccer team, with its captain, Annie Laurie Parker pictured in the cen- ter, takes on all comers, and in the spring holds its place of prestige on the athletic field.


All the year round this group of girls plays, both in the gymnasium, and on the field, tackling even faculty and boys' teams.


This group, too, terror- izes the athletic field, both fall and spring, waylaying all challengers, and, in spite of falls, they get up and go again.
