The Editor

One mighty span crossed was the changing of the name of our school from East Carolina Teachers College to East Carolina College. This was done, not because the name "Teachers" was detrimental, but because the school is now more than just a teacher-training institution. The liberal arts degree may be conferred upon those students who do not choose to pursue a career in the teaching profession.

Several major fields of study are offered the student, including undergraduate work in medicine and dentistry. Even those who wish to make the military service their career can realize that ambition through the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps here at East Carolina.

"Praise to your name

so fair...Dear old East Carolina...

Then there were the new buildings, those already completed, such as the Little Theatre shown at the left and the new gymnasium pictured below . . .

Your joys we'll all share...

and your friends we'll ever be...

and those soon to become a reality, such as the new faculty apartment unit pictured above.

We pledge our loyalty...

A new era in athletics that began dawning at East Carolina a few years ago ripened into a power that now demands the respect of our North State Conference rivals.


and our hearts' devotion...

To thee our Alma Mater

...Love and Praise

Dedication . . .

To Dr. John O. Reynolds, Professor of Mathematics, the 1952 Tecoan is proudly dedicated.

Since coming to East Carolina from the University of North Carolina in 1947, Dr. Reynolds has won the respect and admiration of all those students who have had occasion to deal with him.

Since he has been on our campus Dr. Reynolds has served as faculty adviser to various student organizations and activities, including the Young Men's Christian Association, the Circle "K" Club, the Mathematics Club, the Budget Committee of the Student Government Association and the Tecoan. This marks the third year that his expert financial advice has been sought by a Tecoan business manager.

Our dedicatee is a person who urges students to feel free to call on him at any time for any advice he is capable of rendering. Personal problems receive the same understanding and consideration from this modest professor that other types receive. He does not claim authority on personal affairs and problems; Dr. Reynolds is a man with a big heart, always eager and ever ready to lend a helping hand wherever it is needed.

Very proudly dedicated ... to a very deserving person.

"A true friend is the greatest of all blessings."

-La Rochefoucauld

In Memoriam

Sunset and evening star,

And one clear call for me!

And may there be no moaning of the bar,

When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep

Too full for sound and foam,

When that which drew from out the boundless deep

Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,

And after that the dark!

And may there be no sadness of farewell,

When I embark;

For tho' from out bourne of Time and Place

The flood may bear me far,

I hope to see my Pilot face to fae

When I have cost the bar.

(Tennyson's Cross the Bar)

Those students who knew DR. BEECHER FLANAGAN will always remember him as the kind, soft-spoken professor of economics who never forgot a name as well as a face. He was a member of Phi Sigma Pi, professional educational fraternity, and was sponsor of Tan Chapter here at East Carolina from 1936 until 1950. He passed away April 7, 1951.

During his twenty-six years as a member of the Social Studies Department here. Dr. Flanagan served as adviser to various groups, activities, and publications, including the Tecoan. His memory will live long in our hearts.

Nor will we soon forget LAVENE W. MIDGETT, JR., who was fatally injured in a motorcycle wreck on the evening of April 12, 1951, on the outskirts of Greenville. "Midge," as he was called by those of us who knew him, is still alive with us in spirit. If a person knew Midge, he liked him; if he did not know him, he was missing something. In his two years at East Carolina this native of Rodanthe captured the hearts of all who knew him. We sometimes find ourselves wondering why fellows like Midge must go so early.

Your education has just begun. A foundation has been laid for the building of a superstructure. Your future is in your own hands. As you attain objectives, your ambitions will multiply, your capacities will increase, and your life will grow richer and fuller. But in all your successes, remember to have an abiding faith in the eternal Master who is always present in time of need.

East Carolina is proud of you and shall always wish for you the greatest possible success and Christian service. In return, you should be proud of your Alma Mater and support her in every way you can, remembering that you bear her stamp of recognition and that as she grows in prestige and service your diploma will bear a similar relationship. Don't forget us, but return often.

John Decatur Messick.

Were the Seniors of 1952

Four years. Perhaps more than four for some of us; perhaps fewer than that for others. It doesn't make a great deal of difference now. Any way you look at it, it is just about over. Not our education. They tell us that's just begun. What is ending is that period in our lives that we can never live again. Sure, we can go into graduate study, and some of us will. But think for a minute. Will the situation be the same? Will our instructors be as understanding - guide our wayward steps - grin and bear our ignorant questions - tolerate our answers that missed the point entirely, as they have done during our undergraduate days; or will they assume the attitude that the need for guidance and a certain kind of sympathy no longer exists?

Perhaps we have just begun to live. Our education has just begun, and they also tell us a foundation has been laid for a superstructure. It all makes sense. We are to build the superstructure.

Some of us will, no doubt, eventually become masters of the arts. Some of us may, some day, earn the degree of Doctor in our specialties. Some of us will get our Bachelor's degree and lose our bachelor status, while others will get Bachelors' and win bachelors.

The best four years of our lives to date are ending. Try as we may, we cannot live those four years again. Is it not proper, then, to pause here and look back upon the four best years (to date) of our lives? Can we forget, so early, that embryonic stage of college life - the Freshman stage? Can we forget the passing from that classification to Sophomore? Have we forgotten how it felt to be an upper classman and then to reach the magical status of Senior? No.

We remember all these things, and more too. We remember Cooper's and the Airport Inn. We remember Port Terminal Inn, Kares', Five Points and Clark's. We will not soon forget Brady's and Kennedy's. Sadie Hawkins Day, May Day, the Azalea Festival, and Homecoming are events that have become vital aspects in our education. We realize now that education does have a social side. These events, and others, serve as concrete proof that book learning is only half an education.

We have seen our classmates grow in number, and we have witnessed an increase in faculty members. We have seen new buildings take form and rise, and we have seen another war begin. Some of us will, no doubt, participate in it. We have seen the name of our school change, and we have witnessed the promulgation of a new schedule, the result of which Saturday classes are almost a thing of the past.

We have grown with our Alma Mater, and we have learned to love her with a love that cannot die - cannot be taken from us - a love so profound that we struggle for adequate words to express it.

Others will replace us as we move on to build our superstructures. While they are receiving the finishing touches on their foundations, we hope our structures will be taking the correct form. If we strive hard enough with the foundation each of us has, we can justly take pride in saying, "We were the Seniors of 1952."

One of the requirements of all students working for the B.S. degree is that of student teaching, or practice teaching, as it is commonly referred to, during the senior year of study. Student teachers are placed in the campus training school, Greenville High School, and various other high schools throughout eastern North Carolina.

During this three-month period of supervised teaching, the future teacher becomes acquainted with the fundamentals of classroom management and procedure before going out into the field of teaching.

We Were the Juniors of 1952

The third year of our college life is drawing to a close, and we can visualize already, it seems, how it is going to make us feel to be able to say, "We were the Seniors of 1953."

Our three years have been eventful indeed. There can be no doubt of that. We have seen many of the things the Seniors have seen, and on many occasions we have been alongside them in projects and activities. Being upper classmen, we have sat with many of them in the classroom.

We, too, have seen our Alma Mater grow, and we are proud to be a part of her. We have grown in number, experience, and understanding ; but, at the same time, many of us have left the place we love for various reasons. Perhaps the biggest of these reasons it to defend the democratic principles of government against the threat of communism. Some of us have been called upon to do this, while others among us have voluntarily left to lend a hand.

We find ourselves wondering what next year will be like. Many faces we have known will no longer be here. We will miss them, but then we must realize that it will be our duty to set an example for the new faces that will be with us. We will be the ones with seniority; consequently, we will be the leaders. And, as we enter that status, we must earnestly endeavor for self confidence, wisdom, and tolerance.

We have been told that the next year will be the most eventful, the happiest of our college careers. Needless to say, we look forward to it.

Our best wishes go with those who are passing on before us. As we move into their place next year, our great hope is that we can manage to live up to what they will be expecting from us. With the example they have set for us, we should not fail.

We Where the Sophomores of 1952

The time has come for us to pause and look back. We are at the half-way mark of our foundations. At times we thought we would never survive the initial pouring of the cement of knowledge; there was much digging to be done.

We have been told that a job well begun is half done, and we realize that now. These two years have passed quickly, and it seems that before we can turn around we will be leaving East Carolina. As in the case of the Juniors, some of us have already left too. Our reasons, like theirs, have been varied; and among them is the war in Korea.

We have seen the Pirates in two seasons of play, and we have found it even more interesting to watch them now, because we know many of them by name. Even some of us have managed to make "first string."

In these two short years we have noticed a great change. Last year on Saturday mornings students could be seen hurrying to classes. This year, they were hurrying to the bus station and to good hitch-hiking spots. Most of them, we have found, now make the mad rush on Friday afternoons. In spite of the fact that we love our Alma Mater, these mad rushes are a symbol, and serve as proof, that nothing can take the place of the family circle in the American way of life.

We look forward to the second half of our college career because we believe it will be even more enjoyable and eventful than the first half has been.

We Were the Freshman of 1952

Imagine our surprise at being called "Mister" and "Miss" when we first came to East Carolina! How wonderful it seemed to be able to smoke, if we wanted to, in just about any place we wanted to except the classrooms and dining hall! How nice it seemed for a complete stranger to greet us on the campus with a smile and a cheery "Hello"!

These were some of the first things we noticed when we came to this beautiful campus. And not only is it one of the most beautiful in the state; it is one of the friendliest in the whole United States.

We remember those first few days, and they have made a lasting impression upon us. It didn't take us long to fall into the swing of things and become a vital part of East Carolina's college atmosphere.

But it wasn't all play, we soon found out. There were those things called classes to attend, and soon as the novelty wore off we pretended to dread them. We struggled through Freshman English and wrote a source theme that we thought could never be written - at least by us.

Many of us saw a college football game for the first time soon after we came here, and what surprised us most about sports, perhaps, was that East Carolina had a dandy baseball club as well as a football team and a basketball team.

We were amazed at the number of extra curricular activities in which we were invited to participate. We had expected to be razzed by upper classmen, but were a little sur- prised when we were accepted into the student body as grown-ups. Everyone treated us as such, and pretty soon any complex that we might have had wore off. We were students of East Carolina College and we loved it.

Our foundations are getting well under way. Many of us have excellent starts, and those among us who need to make corrections still have ample time in which to make them.

East Carolina is a great symbol to us now. It is a symbol of learning, fraternal brotherhood, and love. Sometimes we are rather glad that we have three more years to stay here!

The department of music realizes the need for more small ensemble groups performing chamber music on the concert stage and in the home.


Recital attendance and participation are required of all music majors; here students have the opportunity each week to hear various performances by their colleagues. Formal evening recitals are given by those students who qualify and are recommended by the faculty.

The United States Air Force ROTC unit at East Carolina, activated in 1948, has fast become an integral factor in the educational process of many young men in the college. Of a coeducational enrollment of approximately 2,000 students, more than 400 of the men have included Air Science and Tactics in their curricula and are working for a com- mission in the United States Air Force Re- serve. This number represents roughly 40 per cent of the male enrollment figure of the college.

This year, in addition to the basic and advanced courses, Flight Operations has been offered. This course is taught on the advanced level to those qualified men who definitely plan to enter flight training upon their entrance into active duty.

Students who complete both the basic and advanced divisions are, upon recommenda- tion of the Professor of Air Science and Tactics and concurrence by the President of the college, given commissions in the grade of second lieutenant in the Air Force Reserve.

Students who are designated Distinguished Military Graduates by the Professor of Air Science and Tactics may apply for a com- mission in the regular Air Force.

Members of the unit enrolled in the advanced division receive commutation in lieu of subsistence at the rate of 90 cents per day from the date of enrollment to the date of graduation.

Many graduates of the unit here are now serving on active duty stations and in over-

seas theaters as pilots, navigators, and administrative officers. They are making good records for themselves, and all of them praise the value of ROTC training.

Every year, a military ball is held on the campus. This ball, sponsored by the Cadet Officers Club, is a strictly formal affair, and is one of the biggest events of the year at the college. The third annual military ball was held March 14, 1952, in the Wright Building.

AROTC Drum and Bugle Corps

Leadership, drill, and exercise of command are held each Thursday from 1200 to 1300 hours on the drill field. Here basic students are taught the elementary fundamentals of drill, and advanced students are given a chance to become proficient in the capacity of drill instructors. The snappy Drum and Bugle Corps, shown above, and the Color Guard, pictured below, lend color and martial atmosphere to every drill period.

The Drum and Bugle Corps consists of 26 pieces. Its drum major is Cadet S/Sgt. Allen Sawyer.

Every student at East Carolina College is a member of the Student Government Association. The officers of the SGA, shown on this page, and the members of the Student Legislature, pictured on the opposite page, are the representative voice of the student body.

The officers of the Student Government Association are chosen by popular vote in the annual campus elections held each March. Members of the Student Legislature automatically have seats in that body by virtue of their having been elected to offices in various clubs and activities on the campus.

The Student Legislature is divided into several standing committees, some of which are pictured on pages 100 and 101.

As prescribed by the constitution, the Legislature goes into session every Wednesday night during the regular school year, with the exception of the first Wednesday of each month, at which time the Executive Council meets to consider pertinent problems before they are presented to the Legislature.

CHARLES C. SELF, President

The existence of the SGA and its governing body, the Student Legislature, is positive proof that democracy can and does work at East Carolina.

A potent grid machine from Mississippi Southern ruined East Carolina's opening game of the 1951 grid season when they ran unmercifully over the Pirates to the tune of 40-0. It was a non-conference clash and the campaign opener for both schools. The Southerners, defending champions of the strong Gulf Coast Conference, played like demons, hitting hard and forcing the Buccaneers into costly mistakes. East Carolina's highly publicized passing attack failed to click, and as a result the Bucs never got rolling against the more experienced squad from Mississippi Southern.







This game showed the dominant capabilities of Illard Yarborough and Mike Kovack as they ran brilliantly over the Newport News Apprentice School line to lead the East Carolina Pirates to a 32-6 victory in Apprentice Stadium, Newport News, Virginia. The Pirates lost little time in showing their superiority, when after only one minute and eighteen seconds of the first quarter Yarborough broke loose for 49 yards and the first Pirate touchdown of the year. Halfback Jack Benzie carried over the second touchdown from 5 yards out, then drove over tackle from the 3 for the third TD. Siler passed to Britt for the fourth score and then hit Hodges for the final marker. Grissom converted for two extra points. Lincoln passed to Seward for the Apprentice School's only tally early in the third period.







Coach Bill Dole's East Carolina Pirates racked up their second successive victory by edging the Norfolk Navy team 7-6 on Navy's McClure Field. In the non-conference battle, the locals hit their passing stride of the old days when junior quarterback Sandy Siler completed 16 of 30 passes. His completions were good for 191 yards. The Navy eleven scored first on a pass from Ronald McKasson to end Mart Schlicker but failed to convert for the extra point. Siler's passing and John Daughtry's running featured the Bucs scoring drive with Siler passing to Jack Britt for the score. Hawk Grissom split the uprights to provide the Pirates winning margin.







Coach Bill Dole's East Carolina Pirates combined a potent ground offense with an accurate passing attack to throw against the powerful Christians from Elon College on Homecoming day, but to the disappointment of some 7,000 homecoming fans, Elon spoiled the evening when Lou Rochellie passed his team to a brilliant 34-20 win over a determined and game Pirate squad. The Bucs made a fight of the game all the way on the strength of Siler's passing, Shoe's brilliant catching, and the great running of backs Paul Gay and Jack Benzie, but the visitors rallied in the last quarter to pull away from the fighting Pirates.






After trailing 20-7 at halftime, the Western Carolina Teachers College Catamounts put on a last-half rally to down the East Carolina College Pirates 34-20 in a game played at Cullowhee before a Homecoming crowd of 4,000. The Pirates showed a powerful running and passing attack in the first half, but were held to a near standstill during the final two periods. Tailback Ralph Singleton was almost the entire W.C.T.C. attack as he scored three of the touchdowns and passed for another. Scoring TD's for East Carolina were Claude King, Bobby Hodges, and Jack Benzie. Lynwood "Hawk" Grissom kicked the two extra points.






The Pirates of East Carolina won their first North State Conference game of the season when they defeated a stubborn Guilford College eleven 19-14 in ECC's College Stadium. The visitors drew first blood when big Sam Venuto ran around left end for 22 yards and the score. Late in the first period the Pirates tied the score when Boyd Webb ran 85 yards on a punt return. Claude King crashed over from the 8 for the Bucs' second TD, and trailing 14-13 in the final period, King caught a Siler pass to make the final count 19-14.






The Lenoir Rhyne Bears scored four touchdowns in the second half to defeat the East Carolina Pirates 41-14 in a game played at EC's College Stadium. The victory gave Coach Stasavich's Bears their third conference win without a loss, while for the Bucs, it was their third loss against one win in North State Conference action. Leading the attack were Steve Trudnak and Jerry Robinson. Trudnak gained 185 yards rushing, scored one touchdown and kicked five extra points. Robinson crossed the goal line three times. Back Paul Gay and tackle Jesse Aldridge were the most efficient Buc performers of the game. The Bears presented one of the best teams to ever play in the College Stadium.







A second-half rally by the East Carolina Pirates fell one touchdown short as the Appalachian Mountaineers edged them 24-20 in a North State Conference game. The visiting Mountaineers ran up three quick touchdowns and Jack Groce kicked a field goal to run their lead at half time to 24-0. The Bucs came roaring back in the second half to rack up three touchdowns, but the Apps dug in the last period to hold their slim four-point lead. Scoring for East Carolina were Paul Gay, Dwight Shoe, and Jack Benzie. Jesse Aldridge and "Tubby" Thomas were outstanding in the line.






The East Carolina College Pirates unleashed an impressive offensive attack to smother the Cherry Point Flyer's 45-0 before some 3,000 spectators at Varsity Field. The victory marked the fourth win of the season for the locals. Bobby Hodges partially blocked a Marine punt and Siler passed to Shoe a few plays later for the first tally. Claude King scampered over from the ten yard line for the second TD and Jack Benzie racked up the next two scores. Siler passed to Allsbrook for the fifth marker in the third period, then Jack Britt scored twice in the final quarter to close out the scoring. Hodges and Holland were standouts on defense.






In a game marked by terrific defensive line play, the heavily favored Citadel Bulldogs, members of the strong Southern Conference, defeated the Pirates of East Carolina 21-7. End Bobby Hodges led a tough East Carolina line on defense and had able help from a flock of Bucs, which included Larry Rhodes, Bill McDonald, Don MacKenzie, George Graybill, Toppy Hayes, Donald Burton, John Daughtry, and Boyd Webb. The Pirates broke into the scoring act with an 86 yard drive climaxed by a six yard pass from Sandy Siler to the Bucs great All-Conference end, Dwight Shoe. However, as the game progressed, the lack of ample reserve power and experience proved too much for the freshman studded squad of Coach Bill Dole. As the season ended, Coach Dole had nothing but praise for his freshmen players and looks forward to a great team in '52.




ALBERT WADFORD Sports Publicity Director


Pictured above is the '51 Pirate Basketball team.

East Carolina's talented cage team, playing their fourth year in North State Conference competition, battled their way to third place in the final league standings with a loop record of 10 wins as against 4 defeats. In their overall schedule the Bucs won 15 while losing 7.

Boasting the best material in the conference, the Bucs won their last 7 games in a row after starting rather slow. The Bucs boasted the best bench in the league as was shown in their 69-61 NAIB victory over High Point at the close of the season. After losing four of the starting line-up via the foul route, the reserves came in to usher the Pirates into the NAIB playoff finals against Elon College at Bur- lington. The finals had not been played as the Tecoan was sent to press.

Captain "Toddy" Fennell and Lou Collie, the two little men on the starting lineup, were great playmakers and an inspiration with their clever ball-handling, never once letting their opponents have an easy and restful moment. Dick Blake, a junior who was deadly on hook shots, was a hard working guard who got more than his share of re- bounds as well as averaging around ten points per game. Bobby Hodges, a 6-foot 5-inch giant, was the chief point- getter for the Pirates. He averaged 21 points per game to rank him among the top conference scorers. He also was selected by the conference coaches to the All-Conference team. As a college sophcmore, Hodges appears to have a great future ahead of him on the basketball hardwoods.

Warren "Sonny" Russell, landing on the North State All- Conference team for the third consecutive year, was the other member of the starting five. In the minds of the East Carolina fans "Sonny" is "Mr. Basketball," and definitely the state's finest all round cage star. Russell can hit on any kind of shot, make amazing passes, rebound with the best, and make tip-ins with ease; in fact, there isn't much he can't do with a basketball.

The Bucs were fortunate in having such tcp-notch reserves as Charlie Huffman, Paul Jones, John Postas, Jack Carr, and Charlie (Jackmouski) Butler. These boys were in a great measure responsible for the Pirates success during the 1951-52 season.

East Carolina is proud of its intra-mural program in athletics also. A very large percentage of our men students take a part in the basketball intra-murals. The boys are grouped together on a number of teams and they play each other throughout the season. At the season's end, the top teams in the two leagues play each other in a tournament to decide the intra-mural champion for the season. The Orphans were the 1950-51 champions. Some members of this team were Belzoni Corbett, Alston Burke, Bob Oliver, Jim Corbin, and Metz Bizzelle.

Warren "Sonny" Russell, generally aclaimed as the best all-round basketball player in North Carolina, and Bobby Hodges, a big 6-foot 5-inch scoring demon, were placed on the Greensboro Daily News All-North State Conference team. Russell's appearance marked the third consecutive year the smooth East Carolina ace has landed a position on the honor team. For Hodges it was the initial time he has made the squad. These two forwards gave East Carolina the greatest one-two punch in the league and both should be a cinch to repeat on the team next year. Russell is regarded as the best basketball player ever to don a Pirate uniform. Russell is also the first-baseman on the baseball team. Hodges is also a double participant in East Carolina athletics, being one of our top-notch football stars.


Pictured above is the 1951 Baseball Squad

The Pirate baseballers of East Carolina ended the 1951 season with an overall record of 11 wins and 10 losses, which left the Bucs in fourth place in the North State Conference. Coach Jack Boone's veterans, such as Fred Soles, Jack Wallace, and Billy Smith showed up very well. The way the newcomers played was, however, the bright note of the season as two new pitching prospects, along with several infielders and outfielders, were uncovered. Jimmy Byrd and Jim Piner were the new pitching stars. Byrd, a Kinston freshman, turned out to be the brightest prospect in years, winning an 8-0 shutout victory over the Champion Elon Christians. Jim Piner, also a freshman, from Beaufort won 6 conference games and suffered only 2 losses. Other outstanding newcomers were infielders Paul Jones, Dick Hoskins, and W. C. Sanderson. Outfielder George Graybill and catcher George McSwain were also outstanding fixtures in their respective positions on the squad.

Pictured above is the 1951 Pirate Golf Team. They are, left to right: Joe Exum, Dave Martin, Lonnie Nelms, John Morgan, and Walter Wells


East Carolina's golf team captured the coveted North State Conference title for the second consecutive year, also going undefeated in conference play for the second year in a row. The Buc linksters lost only two matches to outside opposition, these being to members of the stronger Southern Conference, Wake Forest College and the University of North Carolina. Again led by Captain Bill Stalls, the Pirate's were unbeatable in conference play. Joe Exum, Dave Martin, Lonnie Nelms, Knott Proctor, John Morgan, and Walter Wells were other team members who aided Stalls in giving East Carolina its only sports championship team of the year.

East Carolina's ace golfer, Bill Stalls, pictured in the photo on the right with an unidentified caddy, led the Buc linksmen through another great season. Much of the success of the local team can be attributed to the sterling play of Captain Stalls who has emerged victorious in every match over the past four years. Stalls name has been widespread over the south for accomplishments in the golfing world, and his name is so firmly in the minds of golf fans and players that his career will be followed closely now that he has joined the professional ranks. We salute Bill Stalls for his many accomplishments and sincerely hope ol' Bill makes it rough on the "pro's."

Pictured obove is the '51 Pirate Tennis Team


Coach Howard Porter's East Carolina tennis team came back strong, after a winless 1950 season, to post four victories in six starts against North State Conference opposition. Captain Bob Williams, a senior from Thomasville, rounded out his fourth year of varsity tennis by winning five of eight matches in which he engaged. The Bucs lost three contests to strong Southern Conference opposition, losing twice to North Carolina State and once to the University of North Carolina.

Joe Hallow, a freshman from Goldsboro, showed up well as the number two man and should develop into quite a netter in the next few years. Paul Cameron of Kinston, also a freshman, showed great promise of strengthing Coach Porter's team throughout his stay at East Carolina. The veterans who developed and strengthened the the team after a year or two of experience were Dave Jones, Larry Kincaid, Dick Palmer and Bill Mulligan.








The Varsity Club has as its purpose the bringing together in a fraternal organization those men of East Carolina who have won monograms in EC intercollegiate sports. This group strives to promote sportsmanship among its fellows and to make them men who are "strong in mind, body, and spirit," who shall devote their lives to things worthwhile. Highlights of the year are the annual dance at which the Varsity Club Sweetheart is crowned, receiving new members, and the scholarship fund drive.
