alumni and friends of the college to
one of the most colorful and specta-
cular of EC Homecomings Saturday,
Saturday morning at 10:15 am. the
annual parade, carrying out the theme
of "Dixie Days got underway. Forty-
nine sponsors, dressed in gay anti-
belhum attire; approximately twenty

cars carrying school officials, among
them Confederate-clad President Leo
W. Jenkins, comprised a spectacular
one hundred unit parade.
Crowds Gather For Parade
Crowds lined the streets and busi-

on spirited horses, and others march-

a hugh cannon, while Circle K repre-

one of the fraternity floats caught
fire and burned while the massive
crowd watched as alert students rufch-
ed to the aid of the Theta Chi fra-
ternity. The fire was extinguished and
the parade sped on.
Just before game time, the Circle
K Club sold their stock of Confed-
erate flags, and estimated that the
profit of the $394.50 sale of flags
netted them a $225. contribution to-
ward the building of the new college
stadium. Circle K's exgxressed their ap-
preciation for the support of the stu-
dents and faculty toward making
their goal a reality.

of 1961, was the crowning of the
new queen by Miss Ellie Speckman,

Prophets Watch College Take Athletic Lead
EC, Once Tagged 'Sleeping Giant No Longer Sleeps
LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS
Letters To The Editor
(Editor's note: Moses Crutchfield, sports
columnist of The Greensboro Daily News,
make the following observance of athletic
growth here at East Carolina.)
By MOSES CRUTCHFIELD
An athletic giant is beginning to awaken
down in the Eastern pail of our state. For
sometime, now, the giant has been twisting
and stretching, opening an eye ever so often
preparatory to full wakefulness. That mo-
ment, when the giant is up and raring to go,
could come any instant.
The giant, of course, is East Carolina.
The story is a long one, and the state-
ment that the college at Greenville, regarded,
perhaps, by some as just another small col-
lege and by others as an overly ambitious
outfit, is readying for bigger things in ath-
letics may bring reactions of surprise and
even hoots and cat-calls.
But it is a fact, and unless the giant
should decide of his own accord to turn over
for another snooze, East Carolina could, in
the not so distant future, take its place among
the athletic powers of Tar Heelia.
Whether the authorities at East Caro-
lina would care to confirm or deny such am-
bitions, the fact is the college, should it con-
tinue its present course, will find itself among
these powers simply upon momentum, if for
no other reason.
Those outsiders who have followed the
delopment and gi-ovth of East Carolina
know the situation to be such . . . and they,
like others of the insiders, are waiting for
the day to arrive.
Amazing Circumstances Behind Story
The circumstances which have placed
East Carolina on such a threshold, indeed,
It was in 1947 that Jim Johnson and
other athletic officials from the college final-
ly, with considerable opposition, gained mem-
bership for East Carolina in the North State
At the time, the college was making a
"transition" from what was popularly, among
the opposition, at least, called a "girls col-
lege In the prewar years the college's en-
rollment had been largely female. With a
few exceptions here and there, the school's
athletic representatives were regarded strict-
ly as second-rate. Internal problems possibly
carried over onto the athletic field.
With the postwar years, however, the
college's enrollment mushroomed and au-
thorities realized the male enrollment would
support an athletic program worthy of North
State Conference membership.
And, even then, there were those within
the conference who felt Johnson and his co-
horts, themselves did not realize the college's
tremendous potential, and for that reason
opposed admitting the college.
Now, the time those prophets foresaw
is in the process of arriving.
East Carolina's enrollment, in excess of
5,000 by far outstrips any other member of
what now has become the Carolinas Confer-
Alumni resources, at one time a weak-
ness, now are becoming a firm strength.
Physical facilities, also once a weakness,
have improved tremendously. Latest project,
for which the ground is being readied, is a
new stadium. Designed for a 12,000 capacity
at first the plans are such that the stadium
can be enlarged to as much as 50,000 at any
time and by whatever degrees are necessary.
A 2,000 seat gymnasium, a model not so
many years ago, already has been outgrown,
though not necessarily outmoded.
Leadership, possibly at one time con-
fused in itself, now has its aims and objec-
tives clearly in view.
Potential Tremendous For Athletic
It is no secret in fact, has been well
publicized . . . that East Carolina for some
years has sought membership in the South-
For these ambitions, the college's athletic
officials at times have been the object of the
criticism from within the conference of which
they now are a member.
A feeling among some of these other
members that "they think they are better
than we" has brought very definite, and at
times uncomplimentary, remarks about East
Carolina's inability to dominate the North
Actually, this matter of record has noth-
ing to do with the situation, except that year-
by-yrair the college is laying the foundation
for bigger things, athletically speaking.
For instant, one athletic director, whose
own record is not to be sneezed at, made this
remark a few years ago:
"When they get their feet on the ground
and when they decide where they are going,
the North State won't be able to hold them.
Perhaps, not even the Southern Conference
can do it
It is a fact that the president of the
Southern Conference spent a week on the
Greenville campus last spring.
A part of his comments when he pre-
pared to leave was this in essence:
"When your physical facilities are ready,
when you have built your following to the
point where it can support substantial guar-
antees, we not only will want you in the
Southern Conference, we'll be begging you
to become a member, for then we will have
The potential contained on the campus
of the college at Greenville, athletically speak-
ing, is tremendous. It already is the state's
fourth largest college.
Greenville, itself, is a growing, bustling
town. Such things as the Voice of America

guests from across North Carolina
and other states who were on our
campus for the past week-end in-

floats of the campus organizations,
sororities, and fraternities commem-
orating the Centennial observance of
the Civil War evoked much praise.

THE TRUE AND
HARROWING FACTS ABOUT RUSHING
It is well enouga to sit in one's Morris chair and theorize about
sorority rushing, but if one really wishes to know the factd, one
must leave one's Morris chair and go out into the field. (My
Morris chair, incidentally, was given to me by the Philip Morris
Company, makers of Marlboro Cigarettes. They are great-
hearted folk, the makers of Marlboro Cigarettes, as millions of
you know who have enjoyed their excellent cigarettes. Only
from bountiful souls could come such mildness, such flavor,
such filters, such pleasure, as you will find in Mariborosl For
those who prefer crashproof boxes, Marlboro is available in
crashproof boxes. For those who prefer soft packs, Marlboro
is available in soft packs. For those who prefer to buy their
cigarettes in bulk, please contact Emmett R. Sigafoos, friendly
manager of our factory in Richmond, Virginia.)
But I digress. I was saying that in order to know the true
facts about sorority rushing, one must go into the field and
investigate. Consequently, I went last week to the Indiana
College of Spot Welding and Belles Lettres and interviewed
several million coeds, among them a lovely lass named Gerund
McKeever. (It is, incidentally, quite an interesting little story
about how she came to be named Gerund. It seems that her
father, Ralph T. McKeever, loved grammar better than any-
thing in the world, and so he named all his children after parts
of speech. In addition to Gerund, there were three girls named
Preposition, Adverb, and Pronoun, and one boy named Dative
Case. The girls seemed not to be unduly depressed by their
names, but Dative Case, alas, grew steadily more morose and
was finally found one night dangling from a participle. After
this tragic event, the father abandoned his practice of gram-
matical nomenclature, and whatever children were subsequently
born to him�eight in all�were named Everett.)

HOMECOMING, l(.)bl a spirited pep rally Thursday
night, a fine parade Saturday morning, and a 22-20 EC win over
Elon. We take our hats off to the Christians for making such
a fine comeback against fired-up East Carolina, celebrating one
oi the most successful Homecomings in Pirate history.
Before the largest gathering at an EC athletic event the
Pirates d not spoil the Homecoming activities and came
through with a win over battling Elon. The Bucs were hard
pressed until -he final gun. but remained undefeated as a re-
sult of the win.
Wooten Fint Quarterback
Although the short sleeved crowd of an estimated 10,01
fans was expecting the Rues to turn the game into a complete
one sided affair after the third period, the visitors from Elon
had other ideas. The Rues were up against the finest quarter-
back that they have played against all season in veteran Junior
George Wooten. It was Wooten's passing and faking that kept
the game as close as it was until the final second of play.
With the large crowd on hand, and plenty of spirit in
the air, the Bucs received the opening kickoff and marched 65
yards for the touchdown, with Strickland bulling his way over
from the one yard line. But the stubborn Christian defense
stopped the Bucs from scoring again during the first half
Probably East Carolina's best quarter of the year came
in the third when EC moved the ball well, and hit paj dirt for
15 points. Names like Frank Galloway. Larry Rudisill, Vince
Eiduek, and Johnny Anderson broke into the EC offensive thrust
to help turn back the Christians.
It was Rudisill's 13 yard run that scored the initial Buc
tally in the last half. Galloway's sparkling r5 yard run back of
an Elon punt aided by beautiful blocking was the most import-
ant score of the game for EC as this one was the final Buc touch-
down. Eiduek, a reserve quarterback with plenty of poise threw
to Freshman end John Anderson for the two extra points giving
the w inning Pirates enough points to win the contest.
Western Carolina Next Foe
EC seeks to remain undefeated this coming Saturday
night at the expense of Western Carolina. The Catamounts pro-
v itled the Buc's Homecoming opposition last year and were nipped
by the Pirates 7-6. The EC schedule will get harder as the season
progresses. The men of Coach Boone play such foes as Newberry,
Lit, Appalachian. Wofford, and Furman after the Western Caro-
All-America)) In Piland
If there ever has been an All-American at ECC it certain-
ly is Clayton Piland, the great tackle from Winton. Probably the
fastest tackle in the conference, Piland is 6l" and weighs only
190. This is not a good size for a lineman, but the hard hitting
Winton native easily out-plays his opponents.
Speaking of good linemen. Chuck Gordon, who is: Tri-
Captain along with Nick Hilgert and Piland certainly has proved
that he is nothing short of sensational. He teams with Piland to
give the Pirates two of the best linemen in the state.
Veterans Tommy Matthews and Nick Hilgert lead the
Pirates in rushing, and Tom Michel leads the team in scoring
with 24 points. The Freshman, Michel, is one of the faster backs
in the Carolina Conference.
