Lt. (j.g.) John David Brid-
gers, U. S. Navy Air Force, is
now stationed somewhere in the
South Pacific. He was gradu-

entered the Navy immediately
following graduation. He was
aboard the Yoketown in the
Battle of Midway, and lost
everything except his plane
and his life when she went
down. He was an outstanding
student while at ECTC, taking
many roles in Chi Pi plays. He

Carolina Offers
War Training
Chapel Hill, N. C, Jan.
Designed to give 16 and
year old youths facing military
service an opportunity to obtain
educational preparation which
will be of practical benefit, the
College for War Training will
pen at the University of North
Caroina on January 27.
The program which will last
from three to eighteen months,
depending on the individual, is
believed to be the first of its
kind to be announced by any
American university since the
start of the war and, as such,
is attracting national attention.
Qualified high and prep
school seniors may enroll in the
War college provided they pass
i a comprehensive entrance ex-
amination. Such students must
be in the academic top one-
third of their class, must have
a minimum of 12 credits or
units toward graduation, and
must be recommended by their
school principal or head-mas-
The State Department of
Public Instruction, in coopera-
tion with the North Carolina
College Conference, held exami-
nations in high schools through-
out the State on January 14 for
students seeking admission to
any college belonging to the
State Conference. Students who
did not take the test on that
date may still be admitted by
coming to Chapel Hill and tak-
ing the examination here on or
before January 27.
A specialized curriculum
stressing physical fitness, mili-
tary training, and scientific
and other essential courses has
been adopted by the War col-
lege. This program will include
vital science courses, especially

For the first time in several
years E. C. T. C. has less than
a hundred boys enrolled and
day by day this number is
dwindling Over half of the
hoys in school this quarter are
in Army or Navy Reserves and
the others are seventeen-year-
olds who'll get to know more
about LTncle Sam's forces in the
near future, two of them being
Eddie Jones and Ray Aber-
nethy who will leave this week
for the army.
Some recent news from the
V-7 boys who graduated here
last quarter is that they didn't
have a very ong Christmas holi-
day. Jennings Ballard, Norman
Mayo, and Jack Young found
notices from the Navy telling
them to report for training at
the Naval Reserve School at
Northwestern University at
Chicago. Jennings writes that
he is almost tired of fried
chicken but he isn't complain-
ing because there's a shortage
of navy beans. The biggest sur-
prise came when the boys dis-
covered that Walter Rogers, an
E. C. T. C. graduate of '41 who
is a Chief Specialist in the
Navy, was to be their drill mas-
ter. Their advice to the boys in
V-7 and V-l is to leave the girls
alone for awhile and learn to

famous paralysis victim, this
custom has become an annual
event in most of the towns and
cities in the country.
According to Mr. W. W. Lee,
Greenville business man and
chairman of the committee for
the dance, a very good or-
chestra will furnish music for
the ball. Other members of this
committee are Mr. J. H. Rose,
Superintendent of the Green-
ville city schools and Mr. J. G.
Clark, Greenvile business man.
Members of the committee
stress the fact that the motive
of the dance is for everyone to
have a good time.
With the college presentation
of "Martha" scheduled for
February 26 and March 2,
preparations are progressing
well ahead of schedule. Those
who are taking principal parts
have been meeting with accom-
panist Camille Jernigan and
director Denton Rossell three
and four times per week since
the beginning of the school
year to study and memorize
their parts. The Women's chor-
us, under the direction of Miss
Gussie Kuykendall, have been
rehearsaling daily for the past
three weeks in preparation of
the chorus music. Mr. A. L.

Who Wants To Set
Austin On Fire?
One does not have to look very careful-
ly to see that the Austin building is very
old and isn't in too good repair on the in-
side. The stairs and floors show age and
useage. Paint has long vanished from them,
and now bare boards stand. A small fire
anywhere in the building would probably
end in disaster.
The Teco Echo staff room is a literal
fire trap twenty eight days a month, be-
cause it only gets cleaned up twice a month.
Notices have been scattered about the room
urging students to help keep the room clean,
but evidently students think it is some kind
of joke. Newspapers, which are left on the
table for the day students, can be found in
all four corners of the room, and in one
large heap beneath the table. Cigarette buts
form a pattern on the floor, and waste bas-
kets contain layers of cigarette buts, paper,
and burnt matches. So far all those matches
and cigarettes have been extinguished be-
fore thrown away, but it would take only
one match one time to send all the paper in
that room up in a blaze!
A fire in the basement of Austin would
spread through the building in a very few
minutes. On several occasions visitors to the
staff room and other rooms in Austin have
commented that the building is a fire trap
and would probably never pass a fire in-
Until something can be done to reasure
the safety of the building it is up to every
student to keep the rooms clean and com-
paratively safe. It is a matter of students
taking the safety of their lives into their
own hands.
Give A Dime � Help
Others To Walk!
Tomorrow ends the March of Dimes
Week. This has been a drive for infantile
paralysis. Students have had the opportun-
ity to contribute dimes all week. Tomorrow
night at the President's Ball an announce-
ment will be made as to the amount con-
ributed by the E. C. T. C. students.
Those who have not contributed a dime,
and those who wish to contribute more will
have the chance for the rest of today and
tomorrow morning.
It may mean doing without a drink to-
day, or a movie tonight, but everyone should
be willing to make that small sacrifice so
that others may walk again.
Getting No Where - Fasti
O. K. students�"speak now or forever
hold your peace Plenty of noise can be
heard from one end cf the campus to the
other about the system around here, (and
everyone knows what system), but when
the chance comes to really do something
about it�what happens? A lot of feelings
get hurt, when personalities shouldn't come
into it, and a lack of enthusiasm, knowledge
or something is prevalent. Frankly it looks
like a lack of guts!
Think it over. It might prove well
worth some time and effort, including the
politness of staying through mass meetings!

say so. Turn in your suggestions, say what
you think would improve the Student Gov-

Interesting Facts About Who's Who
F At
This column isn't exactly news to many
students, but it is giving some credit to the
Men's Student Government, which is long
overdue. It is not something coltossal but it
is a beginning of something which East
Carolina Teachers college has needed for a
long time.
Recognizing the obvious fact that
E. C. T. C. needed more boys, the MSGA
began a campaign to get more advantages
for the boys by getting more domitory space
for them. A petition was drawn up and this
year's council began to get student signa-
tures on the appeal for more rooms in
Rairsdale Hall for the boys. Of course many
students thought it was a waste of time, but
those boys were determined to pursue the
appeal until some action was taken Ap-
proximately 500 signatures were obtained
by contacting individula students, or to ex-
press it in another way, 12 feet of names
were attached in scroll form to present to
the Board of Trustees. Three delegates were
then named for presentation of the petition,
and on the last day of the spring quarter
of last vear these three boys went before
the board with a uromise of two minutes to
present the appeal. However, the interest of
the board was more than had been anticipa-
ted and more than an hour was devoted to
the discussion of the matter. The board was
convinced that it was time for the men stu-
dents to begin moving to quarters "above
the ground and a committee was appoint-
ed to investigate the possibilities and see
what could be done.
Since this work was done during the
last days of last school year, the matter was
revived early in the past fall quarter. The
appeal was pursued until space for eleven
boys was provided for in rooms on the east
wing of Ragsdale that had formely been oc-
cupied by cobwebs. This number may seem
like a let down, but in proportion to the
number of boys, it was a definite improve-
ment. Those boys now have nice rooms and
thev are "high enough up to see the cars
pass by which is more than the boys in
the basement can do.
After the present crisis is over, E. C-
T. C. will someday have more boys than it
has today, and there will be dormitories for
them to occupy. This will be a great day in
the advancement of this college because,
among other things, there is nothing that
brings a college into the eyes of the public
more than a large athletic program, and
how are you going to have this without
more boys? This is only ono example find it
does not overlook the fact that E. C. T. C. I
has done a wonderful job in the past in the
field of athletics, but there is a shining star
farther away which can be looked to and,
with perserverance, reached.

Poe Society Meeting
Carolyn told the Poe members how the
body and an outstanding student from
Meredith college, was guest speaker at the
regular Poe Society meeting, held Friday
evening, January 24, 1943.
Carolyn tlod the Poe members how the
societies were organized on Meredith cam-
pus and some of the work they are doing
this year, their main objective being de-
fense work. There have been parties held in
honor of the service men instead of their
usual parties for the members. Society
members have been working with the Red
Cross, rolling bandages, knitting sweaters,
and in any other ways possible. Various
members have helped the IISO in Raleigh,
as hostesses.
Meredith societies have had several
speakers from various branches of the ser-
vice. Two of the speakers were a WAVE
and a man who has been in foreign service.
A WAAC as scheduled to speak in February.
Carolyn was very much impressed by
the home economics and science depart-
ments here, and marveled at the equipment.
Stated Carolyn, "I think the faculty mem-
bers and student body are friendlier than
I have ever seen at a school this size
Carolyn and Estelle Davis compared
notes, and exchanged handbooks. She is very
proud of the student government at Mere-
dith and explained how nicely their honor
system worked.
Carolyn spent the week-end with Ann
Poythress, president of the Poe Society. She
said she felt as if she could carry some ideas
back to Meredith, after her visit here.
At a meeting in November of the Fra-
ternity Secretaries, the editor of WHO S
had a display of material, and was allowed
a part on their program. The Fraternity
magazines have given this publication a
great deal of publicity in the past two years;
and, in order for the secretaries to under-
stand the full workings and purpose, this
material was made available for their ex-
amination. It was very gratifying to find
out their interest in this work.

since 1934 (this vear is the ninth year). It
now enjoys the cooperation of 687 colleges.
2. The purpose is two-fold: First, to
serve as an honor for students devoid of all
fees and dues. Second, to establish a refer-
ence volume of authorative information on
the great body of America's leading college
students to be used by the Personnel Man-
agers of companies who annually recruit
college graduates.
3. There has never been a charge of
any kind for a student's biography to be
listed; nor is the fact that a student does,
or does not, buy a book, taken into consider-
ation when bringing the students before
Personnel Managers. This is the only na-
tional means of recognition for a student
which is void of all fees and dues and at
the same time renders a service. There were
approximately 7,700 biographies included
in the book last year and only 4,500 books
were printed. Several hundred books were
sent to Personnel Managers for their re-
cruiting purposes. Photostatic copies of
student's records are sent to manufacturing,
publishing, and business firms, when we
think that these firms would be interested
in certain students; or when a student has
made it known to us that he would like to
become connected with a certain firm. For
those students who are going into the ser-
vice, we are bringing their records before
the Personnel Managers for future employ-

5. These students are selected by a com-
mittee at the colleges themselves and their
selections are final. The quota for nomina-
tions is determined by the size of the stu-
dent body and each school is allowed from
five to twenty according to the size of the
student body. Only seniors and students in
advanced work are eligible, except where
a junior is unusually outstanding.
All students submitted bv the college
are automatically included. After receiving
the selections from the various colleges, the
students are sent the biography blanks and
other material. It is distinctly stated that it
is not necessary for a student to purchase
anything for his biography to be included.
The student is told that he or she has three
weeks in which to return the blanks , al-
though we wait approximately three weeks
more before sending the book to press.
However, we do receive blanks for many
weeks later than the deadline which it is,
of course, impossible to include.

the attitude was that this honor was one

Here's Summary Of Inter-Collegiate Season;
Pirates Topped By ACC; Defeated All Stars
Despite the difficulty in
scheduling inter-collegiate bas-
ketball games this season be-
cause of Office of Defense
Transportation orders against
traveling. East Carolina's Pi-
rates played three games be-
fore changing the athletic pro-
gram to intramurals.
The most recent of the three
games was a tangle with the
Bethel All Stars, a game in
which the Pirates were victor-
ous,62-35. Top performer for
the night was Captain Bob
Young, who played a bang-up
floor game and tied Clyde Mann
for scoring honors with 10
points. Sharing honors with
brother Bob is Jack Young, who
played his last game for ECTC
before going into the United
States Naval Reserve. Incident-
ally, Jack ended the intra-col-
legiate play as high scorer of
the team with 27 points. Bob is
next in line with 22 markers.
Early in the season the Bucs
were outclassed by the Atlantic
