To you, especially the graduates, we give this yearbook in hopes that it will leave the brightest picture possible in your mind of East Carolina Teachers College and your friends from whom you are parting. We hope you will forget all the headaches you have had and let this be a true remembrance of this school year. It is your book. You gave us our ideas; you gave us our material; yon gave life to the college; but most of all, you gave us your cooperation and school spirit. All these things made this yearbook so it is really a part of every student here and we hope you will cherish it as such.

ttitiides mark the man. He is gifted who has the capacity to understand this. Even more gifted is he who, under- standing, is guided by this knowledge.

Imbued with an innate sense of justice and impartiality, along with a considerateness unlimited, he became to us the epitome of what we ourselves should like to be, rather than the symbol of grim impersonality that a man who listens to the troubles of a thousand others is apt to be.

Because his first thought has always been of others - be it the lowliest freshman or the highest senior; because where duty stops, he has carved a place in the hearts of the students which time cannot erase; and because, above and beyond all this, he is a true gentleman - we of the student body of nineteen hundred and forty-six are proud to dedicate this yearbook to Dr. Beecher Flanagan.

We shall always remember Mr. M. L. Wright as an educator and a stu- dent of human needs. A servant of East Carolina Teachers College, he was always alert for new opportunities to enhance and expand the insti- tution's services to the masses of North Carolina and the nation. That is progress; that is achievement. With him, public service was a passion, an ideal that must never be overshadowed by personal ambitions. The beautification of our campus, a living memorial, will always be looked upon in deep gratitude to our beloved teacher and adviser.

tLe PRESIDEni

Dear Seniors:

I congratulate you on the completion of another important step in your education and

commend you highly for having done the task so well. Your yearbook, the TECOAN

for 1946, will long be a treasured record and reminder of your experiences during four

of the most happy and significant years of your lives. Your classmates will smile at you

from its pages, pictures of familiar scenes will recall pleasant memories, and reports of

organizations will bring to mind activities and associations that have contributed distinct

values to your lives. Your Alma Mater wishes for you abundant success and happiness

in all your undertakings. We trust the four years of college work have done much to

assure that success and happiness. The love and affection of the faculty and the staff

will ever be with you.

Courtesy is the one medium of exchange which is accepted at par by the best people of every country on the globe.

What are manners but the symbol of courtesy, the "do unto others" attitude practice in every day life.

Life is not too short and we are never too busy to be courteous. Courtesy is the outward expression of an inward consideration for others.

Annih L. Morton, Dean of Women

A student body in which each man and woman strives for the development of his best powers and which converts into constructive action a vital interetst in the good of the school is one of the greatest assets of a college. This issue of the TECOAN gives evidence of such a student body at East Carolina Teachers Col- lege.

Senior Class

Fall of '42 through Spring of '46 - how swiftly the days of our college career have flown. That autumn back in '42 we managed to latch on to that distant and almost invisible star - graduation in '46, which we felt was going to mean a tough four years of hanging on. Now that we have that star under control, we realize just how worthwhile it has been.

We look to the future - all too soon to become our present - with ideals, inspirations, and smiles untold. These come from four years of valuable experience on a democratic and inspiring campus. We have the answers to the criticisms we meet today on every side. We are ready to face the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Will we remember.' Jam sessions - term papers - week-ends. Could we forget.' Practice teaching - conferences - diplomas !

The charm and graciousness of the traditional lady of the South becomes not just tradition when you know Erma. Her loveliness has made living and working with a wonderful "little lady" something to write home about.

To the girl with the sweet disposition and beautiful hair - we'll always remember as a leader in the Class of '46.

Everybody loves our "D. J." From her Freshman year she was destined to be the leader of our student body. She typifies all those virtues that we aspire to be; friendship and genuine hospitality, poise, loyalty, and intelligence. Without hesitancy, we predict for her a brilliant future.

We can always look to Elsie, a truly dependable girl, to accomplish any task which con- fronts her. From the start she has been sincere about her career and though the going has been rough at times, she has always come through with a smile on her face. Keep smiling, Elsie, and life will always be worthwhile.

We've read stories about curly-headed brunettes with one of those PLUS PERSONALI- TIES that makes living with them a pleasure and a privilege. Mary is )ust one up on those story book heroines in having the ability to work with people that comes from being one-half idealist and one-half realist.

It's Mary Young's charm that makes a day brighter; her personality that makes an hour shorter; and her journahstic abihty that makes an editorial worth reading. Mary Young is that conscientious person who has edited the Teco Echo with such brilliancy this year. Along with that full time job she has had time to spare to be one of the friendliest girls on campus.

Junior Class

Yep! Just one more year and then - that's right, we'll be graduates. We've come a long, long way since we started off as little green freshmen. And now, unbelievable though it seems, our last year of being undignified is at an end.

The Junior-Freshman Formal, our greatest event of the year save the old traditional lunior-Senior, really was a super affair, with Woody Hayes and Music Masters furnishing the jive for all the "hep-cats." Boy, that "B-B" Coed and "Bo-B-" College were really on the ball. No kidding, the dance was a big success, and we can hardly wait for the time for our next big formal to roll around.

Time to go now, for there's work to be done, but someone will take over where we leave off.

Sophomore Class

We, the Sophomores, feel more at home this year 'cause now we know what East CaroHna is really like. "We love it."

Our dance for the Seniors was given on a beautiful Saturday night. The orchestra was superb, the gym was beautifully decorated, and a glorious time was had by all. I guess we'll never forget those good ol' dances. Yep, they were a lot o' fun !

The Sophomore Class will carry with it the outstanding virtue of being able to work together in any undertaking, no matter how large or small the task may be. Yes, sir! We'll succeed because we look forward to becoming Juniors next year and Seniors the next, and we just can't let our ownselves down. That's the Sophomore Class.

Freshman Class

Another year - the first one of peace in four years - and another class of college veterans moving up for the distinguished title of Sophomores.

We often wonder how we managed to get through the first week of going to meet- ings and getting acquainted when the only places we knew were our dormitory and the post office and the only person, our roommate. It was our sister class, the Juniors, who told us the how's, where' s and when's of East Carolina. To them, for a good beginning, we shall always be grateful.

We've worked hard, but we've learned fast and made for our class a name which we shall uphold through the years to come.

STUDERT COOPERRTIVE GOVERnmEni RSSOCIRTIOn

The one unit of organization in which every student at East CaroHna plays an important part is the student Cooperative Government Association. The S. G. touches every phase of college life; but, most important of all, it stands for student honor, self-control, and democracy, which are integral parts of any good college.

During orientation week, definite steps were taken to help the new- comers in adjusting themselves to college life, especially where their personal responsibility in student government is concerned.

Through the guidance of a competent Council, the students have proved themselves quite capable of good leadership and citizenship. It is our sincere wish that we will continue to progress in the future years as we have in the past.

uuomEn's judiciary

High standards of conduct - yes, that is what these nine girls stand for; it has been their duty for years. Such a task may sound rather large; but it is made comparatively small by the cooperation of the women students, and the realization of everyone here of the necessity for rules and regulations which must be abided by if the college is to continue being of service to the people of North Carolina and the nation.

mED'S JUDICIARY

In cooperation with the Women's Judiciary, the Men's Judiciary has as its chief function the promotion of good conduct among the men students. This makes for better citizenship, both here on campus and in later life. With the return of veterans to the campus and the ever-increasing enrollment of men at East Carolina, this branch of the S.C.G.A. is becoming more active and efficient each year.

VETERRnS CLUB

The Veterans Club, the newest organization on the campus, has been very successful this year under the leadership of its president. Nobles Killebrew. It is composed of students who were in the m.ilitary or naval service on or before September 16, 194i. To be a member, the veteran must be discharged under honor- able conditions or released from service because of a ser^'ice-incurred injur)- or disability.

The purpose of this organization is to enable the veterans to function as a group in promoting high standards of scholarship, leadership, and citizenship ; and to facilitate dissemination of information con- cerning the rights and duties of student veterans.

Y.uu.c.n.

The Young Women's Christian Association of East Carolina Teachers College, organized in 1909, the first year the college opened, has always been one of the largest organizations on the campus. The members and officers, a representative group of Christian students, through their membership in this organization belong also to the national association and to the World Student Christian Federation.

Participation in the varied activities of the association - social as well as religious - offers opportunities for the development of talents for leadership. Friday and Sunday evening vespers have, through the years, been a regular part of the program. The Y.W.C.A. also sponsors a Religious Emphasis Week, and the World Student Service Fund Drive, and brings noted lecturers, travelers, and other interesting persons to the campus each year.






Y.m.c.fl

The Y.M.C.A. was organized here in the spring of 1939 and since that time the group, made up of a large percentage of the male students, has forwarded its purpose by holding Vesper services jointly with the Y.W.C.A.; by sending delegates to the various regional and sectional conferences held each year by the Na- tional Y.M.C.A.; and by having retreats of their own.

THE COLLEGE BRRD

The spirit of the PIRATES has been boosted by the band music at the games; the students have upheld the band in its undertakings to a fuller degree, and the direction of Mr. McDougle has been excellent.

THE UUOmEn'S CHORUS

Interest in the Women's Chorus has increased consid;rably, as has been shown by the fine quality of music it has rendered on various occasions throughout the year.






THE COLLEGE ORCHESTRR

The orchestra, though small, has been very progressive this year. The sincere interest of its members has been a decided advantage, and we hope that more interest will be shown in this organization in the future.

THE COLLEGE CHOIR

The presence of more boys on our campus this year has made it possible to re-establish the College Choir. This organization has aided in concerts and other functions on the campus when music was desired, and we hope that it will soon resume all of its former activities.






LEADERS m DEPflRTmEniRL CLUBS RHD ORGRniZRTIOnS

Our hats go off to these presidents who have led their fellow students through a year of successful self-initiated work in their major field.

Through the gathering and dissemination of knowledge of the modern movements and trends, these organizations have taken definite steps toward the promotion of the progressive type of education and the raising of the standards of the professional train- ing for teachers and leaders.

THE TECO ECHO

Wouldn't you know that there would be a newspaper-minded bunch of students mixed in with all E.CT.C's horde? The Teco Echo. published bi-weekly, is the extra-curricular journalistic workshop.

Our favorite pastime, as you have dis- covered, is poking our ncses-for-newsies into heaven knows where in search of fea- ture stories; spelling things wrong, particu- larly names, and reading copy and miracu- lously finding no breaches until the paper comes off the press ; entirely overlooking or failing to uncover the story of the week until after the printer has slapped the embryo Teco Echo onto the composing stone on Thursday night. Ah, wouldn't you know that there would be such a bunch ?

^ORA LEE HI.NNANT Business Manaprr PENNV SMITH

THE 1946

Have you ever seen a hair-pulling party? (No, of course you haven't I) We have, and we know what it is Mke. Before we began our dream ideas, we were told on every hand that this year a new and diiTerent book must be manufactured. Frantically, for weeks on end, we groped for what we felt would please you. What a job - but then that is life to editors.

Did someone mention breaking precedents? Yes, it has grown to be a hobby with us. Why, even the mention of "it has always been done this way" has sent us all into hair-pulling tantrums - well, almost, anyway.

We've established one thing though; a trade-mark for the Teioaii. Anyone seen stumbling around with that slightly mysterious gleam in his eyes (despite the need for that wonderful habit commonly known as sleeping) is apt to be one of the Yearbook Clan.

When we needed the understanding and advice of wiser heads than ours we rushed to Dr. Slay. When we became choked with commas and participles we wailed for Miss Greer. And never can we forget the soothing and inspiring words of Dr. Slay: "Where the annual is concerned, the editor and business mana- ger are boss - if you please."






TEConn

The day the layout came we felt that miraculously "the thing" was actually going to turn into "the book." You have the proof in your hands.

After all this lingo, we really mean to say: if you like it, it's yours, and we haven't toiled in vain.

The Men's Athletic Association and the Women's Athletic Association are composed of those students on campus who are interested in athletics in any form. The men plan and operate both the intercollegiate and the intramural sports program, while the women take care of all competitive sports that are held between the girl's dormitories. As a result of the work of these two organizations E.C.T.C. is on the incline in the athletic field.

Beginning the season with only seven players, these Pirates started the first intercollegiate basketball team in the East Carolina Teachers College Post War Sports World. Aided by several returning World War II vets, the team waded through a tough schedule, winning the greater part of their twenty-five games during the 1945-1946 basketball sea- son. The school spirit displayed by the members of this team is a symbol of the A/hlei/cs that is yet to come at East Carolina Teachers College.

JUniOR VARSITY

! ' ULLLI

The Jayvees, or better known as the E.C.T.C. Junior Varsity Outlaws, is composed of those boys who play bas- ketball because they love the game. After a poor beginning, the Outlaws showed their stuff by ending the sea- son with better than a 50-50 record. The experience gained by the boys on the Outlaw team can well be used when they move up to the varsity squad. The fun that the boys had could not be equalled by any organization.

VRRSITY CLUB

The Varsity Club, dormant during the war because of loss of men, has been revived again and launched an active program in December, 1945. Returning to the Varsity Club fold were Coach Earl Smith, Tom Cox, Joe Williams, Otis Powell, and Adrian Brown. New members that were groomed after reorganization are James and Jesse Parker, Blanie Moye, and John Charlton. Honorary members are Campus Policeman J. L. Williams and Dr. Hubert C. Haynes.

Highlights of the year's program included the nam- ing of a Varsity Club Sweetheart, which brings campus- wide interest and enthusiasm from year-to-year, and the annual Varsity Club Dance, unique in the fact that it is the only boy-break dance held on the cam- pus.

When a Varsity Club member is graduated, he retains his membership, which keeps the men close to their Alma Mater after graduation and develops school spirit.

MISS WILMAR KEARNEY Maid of Honor Snow Hill, N. C.

^^*.

mRY DRY

East Carolina Teachers College laid aside its books one day in May to crown Lee Mae Jones Queen of the season.

The majestic atmosphere everywhere on campus was stimulated by the beautiful flowers and the freshness of spring.

May Queen, Lee Mae Jones, with her attractive court, was heralded to her throne as the crowd drew around to wit-

110






ness the crowning ceremony of "her majesty" by Wilmar Kearney, her maid of honor. The Queen then declared her court open for festivities and was entertained by an un- forgettable performance of various national dances. Besides the traditional May Pole dance, a sedate minuet, a waltz, and a Negro dance were performed by the girls of East Carolina Teachers College. These dances represented unity and peace of all peoples and nations.

The Majestic Queen, Lee Mae, her Maid of Honor, W mar, and the sixteen comely attendants dressed in their lovely gowns and carrying beautiful bouquets of spring flowers left the court to prepare for the Queen's Ball to be given that evening.

The Queen and her court participated in a lovely figure ending the May Day activities of 1945 at the Ball and mak- ing May Day a royal spectacle.

POE SOCIETY

During the year '45-'46, in order to promote more interest and appreciation of Poe and his works, we have been col- lecting all information we could find concerning him. This data has been arranged in different sections in a large scrap- book.

In addition to making the scrapbook, our club spon- sored the Fall Dance, carrying out the Christmas theme. And working with the other literary societies on campus, we helped sponsor the May Day Program, one of the most- looked-for events of the year.

Why all the kerchiefs today, girls? Oh! I see - the big Emerson Formal is coming off tonight.

Since we are lovers of Emerson's works, our dance had to be of equal quality. It was once said of Emerson's lec- tures: "... It was all such stuff as stars are made of and you couldn't help feeling that, if you waited a while, all that was nebulous would be whirled into planets and would assume the mathematical system of gravity." This was the way we felt after the dance.

What, in the minds of our coeds, is a more blissful or thrill- ing event than a super formal dance? Well, we gave exactly that in the spring when we, the largest societ)' on campus, gave what was called a super formal dance. Another event we remember with pleasure is the musical program we gave in chapel in the fall.

Our societ)' was named for the famous Southern poet, Sidney Lanier, who has recently been elected to the Hall of Fame.
