Is A Cigaret Worth
$300,000 To Students?
There was a very worried look on
Sammy Strickland's face the other night as
he wa . � r 1 the still-glowing cigarette
and very carefully ground out the last
-park. The lighted butt was lying on the
highly inflammable floor of the Austin audi-
torium after students had left at 10:80.
Sammy, as m is1 students know, is in
charge of the Austin building for the admini-
stration. 11 is is job and responsibility to see
that activities in the building are carried out
as they sould be and that the building is
treated as it should be. ly his job he is pro-
tecting the privilege of students to use the
building after classes and at night for stu-
dent projects.
This was not the first lighted butt
Sammy has found after the departure of
students using the building. Sammy doesn't
object to students' smoking. The admini-
stration doesn't object to students' smoking
in the proper places. But obviously the Aus-
tin building, long famed as a fire-trap, is not
the proper place. In certain rooms ot Aus-
tin�those with cement floors and walls�
smoking is permitted. In other rooms,
especially the auditorium where everything is
constructed of wood now old and dry, stu-
dents shouldn't expect permission to smoke.
That cigarette stub Sammy extinguish-
ed might have caused, or the next one might
easily cause, a fire disastrous to the college.
In ordinary times the state might replace
Austin for around $300,000, but with the war
it w uld be next to impossible to build a new
Austin at any price. This explains the wor-
t ied look as Sammy stepped on the cigarette
which cost pr. bably three-fourths of a cent.
Groups using the auditorium and other
i. i ids of Austin should bear in mind that if
students don't respect the privileges grant-
ed them, it follows that those privileges
might lie removed.

This Record Is Good,
It Will Be Better
Students of East Carolina Teachers
college this year contributed nearly three
times as much per capita to the United or
National War Fund drive than they did to
the similar drive conducted by the World
Student Service fund in the college last year.
Total contribution last year by students
was $134.01 for an average of slightly less
tan 15 cents for each student. This year
with a smaller student body the contribu-
tion was $394.10, an average of slightly
more than 42 cents for each student. Last year
the college ranked seventh among North
Carolina colleges contributing and this year
will probably rank higher.
Most of the money contributed by the
colleges will go into the World Student Ser-
vice fund again this year and will be used
to benefit unfortunate students in all parts
of the world, including American students
in enemy prison camps.
The big increase in the size of the con-
tribution from East Carolina students this
year, although still short of the ideal goal of
on dollai for each student, shows a decided
gain in knowledge of what is required of
them by students. The student body may
well feel proud of its improvement in this
drive and prepare itself to do even better
when called upon in the future.
A Gum Shortage?
Not At East Carolina!
We are told that there is a chewing gum
shortage in the- nation. And if one should
observe the promptness with which the great
American habit disappears from the East
Carolina Soda shop when occasionally it is
found in stock, he might agree that there is
indeed a shortage.
But the girls who sere meals in the
dining hall know better. There isn't any
shortage of chewing gum. How could there
be when so much of this somewhat sticky
substance is found attached to plates after
each meal? Of course it might be argued
that even with a shortage gum would wear
out after so many thousand upward and
downward movements of the jaw, but not in
such quantities as are found in the dining
If there be such a shortage, it would
seem that the students should be more saving
with gum than to leave it on their plates.
And shortage or not. college students should
be more courteous than to uses plates for
refuse cans when disposing of gum.

The assistant college physician is First
Lieutenant E. Burtis Aycock, now on leave
in the ser ice of the United States army.
Dr. Aycock is employed to assist in operat-
ing the clinic, the infirmary and in teaching
courses in health and devotes one fourth of
his time to college duties. He also engages
in the practice of medicine in Greenville.
Dr. Aycock was bora in Fremont, N. C,
and educated in the public schools of Fre-
mont and the University of North Carolina,
from which he received the A.B. degree. He
then taught in public schools for several
years, reentering te University of North
Carolina, to study medicine in 19,0. After
completing the work there in 1932 he trans-
ferred to McGill University in Canada and
received the degrees of M.D. and CM. in
1935. He interned in a hospital in Vancou-
ver, B. G. after which he came to Greenville
and opened offices for the general practice
of medicine.
He was elected assistant college physi-
scian of East Carolina Teachers college in
1942 and was acting college physician at the
college from March. 1942 until June 1942
when he was commissioned by the United
States army and thus forced to ask for leave
i f absence from his college duties before his
tenure as assistant college physician actual-
ly begun.
Dr. Aycock was married to Miss Jean
Hodges of Greenville, N. C in 1941. They
have a son Burtis, who was born to them in
New Orleans where he is now stationed. His
return to his college work is eagerly awaited
by staff and students.

Cpl. Jack Edwards is becoming so fami-
liar to the campus again that it seems like
eld times. Come February, Jack has been in
the army a year. Yes, the staff members
well remember the day we came to school to
find no sports editor for the paper. Since
then Jack has been fortunate enough to get
home several times, and has been stationed
in Ohio, Maryland, and Georgia. While in
the peach state he was stationed at the At-
lanta Ordance depot. Jack said he missed
ECTC but there were plenty of cute Georgia
peaches in Atlanta. He was a company
clerk. Last week Jack was transferred to
North Carolina State college where will
study engineering.

Sgt. Bill Gaddy, who was a student here
until last February, stopped by on his way
home a few days ago. Since he entered the
army air force he has been "gadding" about
from one school to another taking aerial gun-
nery training. He is a waist gunner in a
B-17, Flying Fortress to you. Bill says this
is very exciting. Bill is stationed at Salt
Lake City, Utah, and expects to go over soon.
I asked Bill how he feels before going up and
he says he always get a sensation "kinda like
when you go into a ball game (While here
in school, Bill was outstanding in basket-
ball). Bill said he hadn't seen a tree grow-

The Teco Echo, November 12, 1943
East Carolina's student-run campus newspaper was first published in 1923 as the East Carolina Teachers College News (1923-1925). It has been re-named as The Teco Echo (1925, 1926-1952), East Carolinian (1952-1969), Fountainhead (1969-1979), and The East Carolinian (1969, 1979-present). It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
