To the Graduating Classes:

Your senior year, graduation, com- mencement. In accompanying my mother, as a small boy, at a college commencement program, I asked her, "Why are the exercises called 'com- mencement' when the students are graduating and finishing their studies?" "Yes, they are finishing their studies," she replied, "but they are just commencing their life's career." This statement has remained with me throughout my life. I wish that I could impress upon you that your college diploma is not the symbol of a con- clusion or an ending, but the com- mencing point of a life of service to your fellow man. So with your diploma as a symbol of your preparation for a useful life, go forward, as I am sure you will, and be ashamed to die until you have rendered some real service to the world.

Dennis H. Cooke, President


Annie L. Alorton

Dean of Women

Dr. R. J. Slay

Academic Dean



There is but one straight road to success, and that is merit. The person who is successful is the person who is useful. I am hoping that the seniors who leave us this year to take their places in the professional field will remember always the motto of their Alma Mater, "To Serve," and through service become useful, successful citizens.

Annie L. Morton, Deun of Women

"To Serve" is the motto of your Alma Mater. Will you not therefore keep this motto ever before you as a constant reminder of your duty to others when you go out into the various fields of endeavor.

To serve others is a noble trait and like bread cast upon the waters will bring the richest returns.

Dr. R. J. Slay, Academic Dean

IRST come the Seniors. After all, they're of first impor- tance. They're the ones who have really shown they have the ability to pull through. Hats off to yon, Seniors.


We, mIio have coiue through four years of college life, are seniors. Graduation is just around the corner, and we are just beginning to feel that we don't Mant to turn that corner. But, when we do, we'll leave with the feeling that these have been four worthwhile years, and we hope we've made the most of them.

Under the leadership of Fred Martin, the Student Cooperative Council has done a fine job of handling student affairs this year. It has been very progressive in its undertakings. A committee from this group has been appointed to rewrite the Constitution of the S?C?G?A? and this will go into effect next fall. Give this group credit for work well done.

This is the group that has done such a good job of handhng the disci- phnary cases of the women students this year. Theirs is not an easy task, but they do their best to administer justice.

This group has as its problem to keep the men students on the straight and narrow path. They, unlike the Women's Judiciary, have no regular meeting time. They only meet to try cases as they arise.

An active, hard-working organization is this club. Organized during the school year of 1945-46 it has shown what a cooperative spirit among members can do. Immediately after receiving its charter the club started an athletic scholarship for this school. To insure funds for this scholar- ship this year, the boys put on with the aid of Mr. Eli Bloom a minstrel composed of campus talent. This was the highlight of the club's program for the year. It is an up and coming organi-

To help supply the spiritual need of the men on the campus is the aim of the Y. M. C. A. This international organization organized a new branch at this college with the reappearance of men students, and it shows signs of becoming one of the most outstanding and active groups on the campus.

The College Band

This organization acquired a new and very capable leader this year in Mr. Carter. The band nearly doubled in size due to the increase of men students on the campus. At the football games this year the band displayed their newly acquired ability to march in formation.




Under the direction of Mr. Vorn- holt the Women's Chorus was very outstanding this year. They gave a beautiful Christmas pro- gram and appeared on the air on the college radio hour.

The Collegians

Under the leadership of Mr. Carter, these selected few from the college band made up a very popular dance orchestra. They have played for college dances and over the radio for the weekly college hour.

The College Choir

This year saw a big increase in the size of the college choir. Under Dr. Gilbert's capable leadership they have done a wonderful job.


These Presidents of departmental clubs and organizations receive much credit from us for the splendid work they and their clubs have done this school year. Theirs is a hard job, and they should feel very proud of their work.

The 1947 Tecoan

Yes, here's your 1947 TECOAN. We've worked, and it's been hard in places - smoothing out the rough spots has been no easy job. Even so, we enjoyed it, and we hope you Hke it.

The editorial and business staffs have done their best to give you a good book - one that you'll want to look at years from now because it brings back such wonderful memories.



These people with their facul- ty advisors, Dr. Posey and Dr. Slay, now pass the job to next year's staff. Good luck to them!

For the first time since the war the Pirates are playing intercollegiate football again. And a mighty good season they had too.


R. B. LEE, Tackle



Among the important things they did this season was to bring the bucket back to East Carohna from its ancient rival, Atlantic Christian College in Wilson.

JOHN \< YATT, Tackle




The first game of the season was with Presbyterian Junior College at Maxton, and the Pirates won by a big margin. They ended the season he same way.

The players come tc school early in the fall for practice. There Johnson formed his team with Ellie Fearing and Slade Phillips carrying the ball the Pirates had a back field that just couldn't be stopped. This team of Coach Johnson's really knows its football.

1946-47 brought a new and better basketball team for our college. Inter- collegiate games brought many spec- tators to our campus. This team, follow- ing in the path of the football varsity, brought the bucket back from A. C.

These are the girls, selected for their charm and beaut}', who marshal at all the college entertainments. Dressed in their lovely white gowns, they lend the needed air of charm to the gathering. Not only do they lend beauty, they aid in avoiding confusion by helping the audience find their seats quickly. These girls are proud of their honor and are rightly so as they are indispensable to the college social life.
