Still the flood of debate concerning the convoy issue is sweep-
ing the nation as the world crisis becomes acute. Millions of hot
words streamed out over the radio, at street corners, at country
filling stations, and in the schools of the nation. We all wonder
exactly how Great Britian stands at the present time, but none of
us know. We do feel that she needs our munitions and that she
needs the help of our navy to convoy them to her. The president a
few weeks ago came out in an open statement that he did not
favor an American convoy but since that time the public has been
talking. Now, since he has found out what the public thinks, he
may take a different viewpoint on the matter. Millions of letters

We Need Your Cooperation In Our Undertaking
Recently it became necessary for the Teco Echo to put a stop
to having the staff room used as an eating place for soft drinks,
candies, buns and other things purchased from the college soda
shoppe. We are asking members of the student body in a nice way
to cooperate with us. as the failure to do this may bring insults.
We want students to feel at home in the staff room and ap-
preciate visits by any member of the student body. Many of them,
however, felt too much at home. They spilled soft drinks on the
tables, threw their trash on the uoor, and left the room resembling
1 P In the first place sweets attract flies and flies are disturbing
and unhealthv. In the second place it makes the room unattractive,
and unattractive rooms fail to impress students and visitors And
in the third place we don't appreciate visits from students who do
not respect our working quarters. ,
We are determined to keep the staff room clean during the
coming school vear. If vou are not the type of person to help us
keep it clean, then we take this means of politely asking you to
stay out.
Twelve Years Without An Accident
Paul T Ricks, who conducts educational tours throughout
the United States and Canada, all of which are good for college
credit, is entering his thirteenth year in this type of service to
students and faculty of East Carolina Teachers College. He is
to be congratulated, as not one of his many busses has been in-
volved in a personal injury during this period.
Recently Mr. Ricks declared, "Ninety per cent of all accidents
can be avoided if the drivers are careful And that sums up his
attitude relative to employing drivers for his busses. When one ot
his drivers gets under the wheel of a truck he realizes that he
has manv lives in his hands, and that being careless in one split
second might cause the loss of a life or serious permanent injury
to one of the occupants of the bus.
The beginning of the Summer session will mark another trip
to Canada by students of East Carolina Teachers College. Each
one making the trip can rest assured that he will travel safely,
as safety is the keynote of Mr. Ricks' service. You are to be con-
gratulated for the splendid record that you have made, Mr. Ricks,
and may your busses travel through the years without an accident.
A Real Treat For All Members Of The Student
Body H ,
One of the policies of the staff of the Teco Echo during the
ensuing school vear will be to better serve the interests of East
Carolina Teachers College. Our first step in this direction was
working out details wherebv a nationally-circulated and beautiful-
ly illustrated magazine will be distributed weekly and free of cost
to all members of the student body.
The magazine, to be known as the ECTC Cavalier, will be
representative of campus life in colleges and universities through-
out the United States. East Carolina Teachers College was one of.
the schools chosen to be represented in the magazine. Editors ot
newspapers in the selected schools will supervise the handling ot
copy for the publication from their respective schools.
" Each week the magazine will honor some college editor and
also some college or university in the United States. It is illustrat-
ed on some pages in natural color and contains photographs, short
stories, college humor and other types of material that tend to
foster reading entertainment for the average college student. The
magazine is being edited by college students in order to add to its
nd telegrams have flowed into his office in the last few days,
many of them sent by the isolationist groups who are trying to
keep him from changing his mind about the convoys.
At last North Carolina's junior senator. Robert R. Reynolds,
whose isolationist record caused much opposition to his expected
succession to the Senate Military Affairs Committee chairmanship
has taken his place as the committee's chairman. He has lately
started switching around, speaking privately of the need for much
greater aid for Britian. . .
Since the morning of May 11. thousands of different opinions
about Rudolph Hess' strange landing in England have been argued
in this country. German spokesmen say that Hess was mentally
deranged, but the British say that he seems to be as sane as any
person living in Germany might be. It was generally believed that
Hess was forced to leave to save his neck when he violently dis-
agreed with Hitler concerning the Russian policy. Hess belonged
to the Nazi group which disliked cooperation with Russia, and
in the Moscow treason trial of January 1937 had been named as
the German who plotted with Trotsky to overthrow Stalin. Some
of these days the high-up Nazi will start talking and probably
wont know when to stop.
The bold governor of North Carolina. J. Melville Broughton.
lost no time in naming his choice of a person to succeed the late
Representative Lou Folger as National Committeeman. Brough-
ton named former Governor Clyde R. Hoey. and immediately
friends of Richard J. Reynolds, millionaire tobacco manufacturer
of Winston-Salem, announced that he was also in the race. This
is the first time in the history of the state that a governor came
out and selected a man to run for the position. A hot campaign
will be in progress until the state executive committee of 126
members meets this week to vote for the successor.
A war must be financed and even though we are not directly
in the war. it has caused us to increase the national debt,
which may within a year or so exceed ninety Billion dollars. With-
in the last vear the income tax on a salary of $4000 has increased
from -$70.40 to $312.40. or 393. Since 1929 the income tax for
married persons drawing this salary has increased 16,6069r. This
goes to prove that the small salaried man is being taxed as heavily
or heavier as the man with the big salary.
At its last regular meeting
Tuesdav night, the Forensic
Club elected officers and ar-
ranged to assist in Orientation

history of the school, an exten-
sive program of intercollegiate
forensic contests Is being plan-
ned for E. C. T. C.
Those who will direct the
club's work during the next
school year are as follows: Jen-

Your Future Isn't Any Too Bright, Seniors
Soon some 160 members of the Senior class will march across
the stage of Robert H. Wright Memorial auditorium and be grant-
ed diplomas, which represent four years of hard work and sacri-
fice of both time and money. Rut the future they face is shrouded
by the darkest clouds in the history of the school for students em-
barking upon their life work. ,
Perhaps this assertion gives the impression of being some-
what strong, but an examination of the facts at hand will reveal
that we have put it rather mildly. The majority of this year s
graduates will enter the teaching profession, as the majority of
graduates of East Carolina Teachers College find jobs in the field
of teaching, but they are confronting a situation more grave than
any other graduates of the have ever faced�the European con-
flict. .
Many will be inclined to ask, "How is the war m Europe go-
ing to affect teaching in the United States?" Off-hand no one can
answer this question, as no one knows what the outcome of the
war will be. If the axis partners win the war our relations with
the countries South of us will become stronger, a change in the
economic setup and standards of living in the United States will
take place, and a change in the nation's educational system likely
will be realized.
If a graduating class ever needed courage, this year s class at
East Carolina Teachers College, and those of all other colleges and
universities in the United States need it. Your best tool in over-
coming any obstacles that lie ahead is your education. Your
knowledge will enable you to meet changing conditions. But a
possibility exists of your finding problems that may have to go

over the visitors in a tennis meet

E. C. T. C. loses a great
athlete w hen Floyd Hinton
walks across the stage on grad-
uation day. Floyd, who hails
from Rocky Mount, has starred
in athletics at E. C. T. C. during
his four years on the campus.
His activity has been divided
between all three major sports,
and he has been especially out-
standing on the diamond.
Hinton's football playing was
cut short when he received a
knee injury in his second year
on the eleven, and since then
basketball and baseball have
been his specialties. Playing
forward on the court five and
first base on the baseball nine,
Floyd has proven himself to be
a fine sportsman and athlete.
His play on both teams has al-
ways been of good quality, and
he has been a mainstay on both
teams for several seasons.
The varsity club chose Floyd
to succeed Bill Merner as presi-
dent of its organization this
year when Merner left school to
accept a job at Rich Square
Led by Acting-Captain Dopey
Watson and Smith Burks, the
Pirate netters eaked out a 4-3
win over the William and Mary
(XD) tennis team in a tight
match in Norfolk last Friday.
Watson and Burks accounted
for three of the team's points,
and clinched the match with a
win in the no. 2 doubles match.
It was the second Buc victory
over the Braves this year. The
other score was 6-1 in favor of
E. C. T. C.
The Pirates captured three of
the five singles matches to give
them a jrood start toward vic-
tory. William and Mary got the
no. 1 doubles, but couldn't get

match played at Oak Ridge last
Tuesday. Dopey Watson was the
only Pirate to win. He was vic-
Itorious in the no. 3 singles by
counts of 6-1. 6-1.
The match was the final one
of the season for the Teachers,
and left them with a .500 aver-
age. They have won five and
lost the same number during the
spring campaign. David Watson
I amassed the best record of the
team, winning six matches and
dropping only two. Smut Burks
won five and lost three for run-
ner-up honors.
E. C. T. C. went down to de-
feat twice at the hands of the
hands of the Naval Base nine
during the past week's cam-
paigning. The scores were 11-2.
and 6-4. The games were run
off in Norfolk on May 16 and 17.
Without the services of Floyd
Hinton and Norman Mayo, the
Pirates were handicapped tre-
mendously. Both of these play-
ers had been leading the team
all year, and a revamped lineup
failed to stop the sailors.
In the first game Baucom
started, but was shelled from
the mound, and he was relieved
by Charlie Frazelle. who held
the Navy pretty well in check-
while he was on the mound.
Wilson Scherholz hit safely
thrice to lead the Bucs in the
first game, but his stickwork
went- for naught as the team
committed several costly errors.
The Pirates faced a rapid-fire
left-hander in the initial jrame.
and he had too much stuff for
the boys from North Ca-lina.
In the second game, Lefty
Dunn was the star hurler, and
listless support from his mates
slowed him down considerably.
The Naval nine got off to an
early lead and held the Pirates
down all the way.
W. B. Harris, subbing for the
absent Mayo, got two singles to
lead the attack of the losers.
Ray Sisk. first-string catch-
er was forced from the first
game when he was struck on a
finger by a foul tip. Sisk was
unable- to play the next game,
and was replaced by Walter
Rogers behind the plate.
The Teachers garnered only
13 hits in both games, six in the
first, and seven in the final
Wiley Brown's double in the
eleventh brought Rogers across
the plate with the deciding run
of a 3-2 battle between the Pi-
rates and the Campbell Camels.
The game was the season finale
and was played at the Guy Smith
stadium last Tuesday.
The victory was the second for
Coach Christenbury's charges
over the Camels. The first game
was a lop-sided affair, with the
Pirates coming out on top,
Red Baucom hurled for five
innings, and allowed nary a hit
during his stay on the mound.
An attempted slide into second
base caused an ankle injury to
the Buc twirler. and Baucom
was forced to retire from the
game. Lefty Dunn came in on
the mound at that point, and
was reached for only five safe-
ties by the visitors.
In the tell-tale eleventh frame,
Futrell flied out, but Walter
Rogers singled sharply to left
field, Harris walked, and then
Brown delivered his game-end-
ing double.
Rogers got a double and a
single to pace the attack of the
winners. E. C. T. C. got only
eight hits over the route.

McClees. the Alumni Secretary,
visited the chapter. After telling
something of her work, she told
of the Legislative program then
being undertaken for the Col-
lege. Mrs. Bruce Ellis Boyd and
Mrs. Irma Sermon Worthington

legislators from Pitt County
asking their support on these
measures affecting the growth
of the College. Miss Emma
Hooper of the English Faculty
of East Carolina Teachers Col-
lege gave some interesting views
on "Peace on Earth Goodwill
to Men. Through Art January
guest speaker was Mrs. John R.
Carroll, daughter of H. S. Rags-
dale, a founder of East Carolina
Teachers College. Mrs. Carroll
told manv intimate stores of the
early days of E. C. T. C. She
was asked to write this for a
permanent record. The candi-
dates for the Alumni Award
were presented to the chapter
in January and a vote taken. It
was also decided at this time to
have a social of some kind dur-
ing spring holidavs for the stu-
dents of E. C. T. C. from Win-

ing in March was most enjoy-
able. The April meeting was
