DM ]Wv A ■ ' " I 9 5 7 v LOG tP Elizabeth City State Teachers College Elizabeth City, North Carolina ROBERT L. VAUGHAN We, the members of the Student Council, in grateful re- cognition of his untiring efforts, his interest in the betterment of us as students and his enthusiasm which so inspired us to undertake this task, dedicate the 1956 Pirates ' Log to show in a very minute way our appreciation for the essence of his guid- ance. Autog fiS PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE GREETINGS! On behalf of the members of the Elizabeth City State Teachers College family, I wish to express our sincere appreciation to those who have conceived the idea of a Yearbook for 1956-1957, and who through diligent application to the task, have seen its fruition, A yearbook represents more than a collection of pictures and words; it is the embodiment of cooperative effort on the part of a large number of persons. This Yearbook will tend to grow in value to all of us in the years to corne and finally will be a priceless treasure. As we grow older, we shall look back upon its pages with a nostalgia as we recall the faces of the people who are included in this edition. Many inci- dents and personalities will be recollected with a large degree of pleasure. Then there is the joy we will have in remembering staff members who contributed much to whatever suc- cess we may be enjoying at the time. Likewise, many will relive some incidents of happen- ngs of the years when we were students here: the choir, the dramatic group, the athletic teams and their victories and defeats, our social hours, lyceum programs, lectures, and all activities which have contributed to your growth and development. How frequently will we look at the Yearbook and say: " I remember !!!!!. We are proud of the work which the college has done and look forward to even greater bchievements. The outlook for the future has never been brighter, and you can take joy in the knowledge that you have contributed much to its growth by publishing the Yearbook of 1957. S. D.

CLASS PROPHECY It ' s 1967, and I have just completed my fifth successful teach- ing year. Though I have faced many financial problems and started my family, 1 have managed to save some money. With it 1 am going to make an extensive tour to find out where some of my classmates are and what the future has brought into their lives. Well, I am off and my first stop will be right here in the south, in tne state of North Carolina. In Woodland who do 1 run across but Mrs. Janice Drew and husband. There are six additions to the family. Believe me the males are dominant in her house. Also residing in Wake Forest, and giving Mrs. Drew a run for her money in additions to the family are Reverend and Mrs. Leon White with five little Whites. In passing through Elizabeth City, North Carolina the grape- vine is ringing loud and strong. Misses Mary Sharpe, Mary Parker, Maude Ricks, Ethel White and Elizabeth Hunter have joined the local school system. And just how does this strike you? James Williams is head football coach at P. W. Moore High School, and with a winning teaml 1 1 ! As I cross the North Carolina and Virginia line and stop in Ports- mouth 1 got the news of Mr. Irvin Gordy and his fabulous home. Junior is the spiting image of Dad. Guess who ' s rich now and has a winter home in Elizabeth City, North Carolina and a summer home in Virginia Beach, Virginia — Miss Joyce Spellman and her husband Mr. Melvin Boyd. Mr. Ephriam Green and Henry Porter are teaching and coaching football and basketball respectively, at Booker T. Washington, Norfolk, Virginia. From society columns, 1 found out these things: Shirley Uzzelle and Maggie Squire are happily married and have two children and are successful teachers. Also from the society column, I see three humble young ladies have dedicated their lives to the education of our youths. In addition, they have families governed by the laws of good living. They are none other than Margaret Coley, Martha Murray and Elizabeth Biggs. The latest Advertisements, in Dry Cleaning, " Bring them to Home Dry Cleaning Service " , Mr. Albert Horne- Proprietor, Mr. Clarence Revelle, Manager. It was brought to my attention by mail that Miss Myrtle Hines is still the captivating doll she was in " 57 " . What a personality! ! ! Here ' s the most shocking news: Two fine specimens of the female sex have hooked Vernon Jones and Ivey Mitchell. Believe me they are new people, no jiving, no flirting, or running around. I saw Shirley Moody or should 1 say Mrs. Harry Freeman: they have a basketball team and a few Spares. Yes, they have eleven boys. In the society column there was an article which read: Mattie Taylor and Raymond Williams are really in the money. Running the race with them are Erma Moore and husband. From one of the newspapers it was announced that Mahalie Williams and Helen Pickett are planning for a dou- ble wedding and they will be known as Mrs. Mahalie Leathers and Mrs. Helen Hoggard. They will honeymoon in Paris at the Paradise Hotel, Bernice Burton manager. I received a letter from Doretha Hall and she and Will Gist did marry and have three husky boys. Dig this Willie, Jr. received a punch from his baby brother, similar to those his Dad gave on State football team. She mentioned in her letter that Mary Howard, Lillie Spruill and Olivia LxDvett have jobs modeling in Washing- ton D. C. Listed under " Social Whirl " was Mr. and Mrs. Hector McNair are preparing for a dinner engagement with the dynamic Democratic Chairman, Mr. Carlton Cherry. Mrs. McNair is formerly known as Miss Janice Clawson, the president ' s secretary is Miss Lillie Mattocks. By the way of the grapevine, I heard that Willie Jenkins has finally accomplished her greatest ambition, to direct the Glee Clujj and teach the fourth grade at R. B. Harrison School in Selma, North Carolina and her principal is Maxine Isley. My eyes are tired from so much reading but 1 am now landing in New York City. Appearing at the Ap- polo Theater whose name do I see in lights, Miss Dee Dabney rising to fame as a blues singer and calypso dancer. On the margrue of the Savoy, I saw where Mary Spruill, Alelia Koonce and Evelyn Wrisby are working as chorus girls. As I walked down Broadway I see a fabulously dressed couple, and they are Mrs. Margaret Pittman and her husband, Edgar, they told me that they are living next door to Eula Burns and family. Over in the Bronx lives Lillie Gordon as Mrs. McCoy who has taught a spell and is now spending her time with three lovely children, in the apartment next to them lives Miss Vivian Manly, two daughters and husand Billy Sims. After a day of exploring around and upon entering the hotel door, 1 bumped into Mildred Daniels who is doing extensive traveling. We chatted for awhile and she is residing in California. She let me in on some of the latest. Betty Rogers received her Masters from New York University on May 31, 1958 and married June I, 1958. Quick work, huh! ! Gwen Arrington is opening a fine Beauty Saloon in Tacoma, Washington. 1 decided to go to Canada from New York City, and I stopped in up state New York in the city of Syra- cuse; there I toured on of the Junior High Schools and saw Paul Williams as Principal. About a block down the Boulevard, 1 saw a beautiful red and white shingle which read: Social Dance School-Choreographer Willette Booker Williams, Instructor. In a fabulous bungalow about a block down the street. Dr. Marie Riddick resided with her husband Al Wright and three lovely sons. On my extensive trip, my next stop was Schnectady, New York and at Union University 1 found head of the English Department, Mrs. Allene Jeffers Brown and husband D. Brown, head football coach, also in the home Economics department was Mrs. Estelle Blackwell. When I boarded the plane in Schnectady, there I saw a very attractive and neat young lady as stewardess; and it was Miss Daisy Barclift and guess who the co-pilot was, Mr. Fred Brown. When we reached Canada and landed, who to my surprise had gotten stranded and had become president of the Canadian Bum Association-none other than Mr. George Scott. And buying his lunch was a very softhearted and understanding young lady. Miss Francis Hawkins, who is doing extensive work in the field of reading. Mrs. Wilhelmina Smith Hill, Mrs. Mae Brown and Miss Marva Thomas are working on their doctorate there. What dynamic young ladies. While in Canada I decided to keep house for myself. I went to the market and whose name do you sup- pose was listed as proprietor James Whitaker. He ' s about to closeup because he is eating up his profit. Later 1 heard the voice of Linwood Edwards saying, " May 1 help you. " Well, 1 have had a wonderful trip and as usual I must get some magazines to read on my way back home. Gee! I know I want this Hollywood issue because here on the cover are pictures of two of my classmates who are Carlise Hardy. I must say 1 feel so much better after finding out what many of my classmates are doing and the usual and unusual advancements they have made. When I get back to North Carolina, I shall have one week to rest before going back to school. CLASS FLOWER: White Carnation CLASS POEM If we have gained much knowledge. At dear State Teachers College, Then we can uplift our race And always raise a proud looking face. If we have much originality And a pleasing personality. Then dignified must be our bearing And we must watch what we are wearing. If we are never superficial And know all lessons are beneficial. If our aim is training some child. Then we must be enthusiastic With tempers that are always plastic. And Dear S. T. C. as we pray. Some child we shall greet on his first day. You have taught us to always try To guide the searching youth ' s eye. So we must leave with regret and trust To do those things you ' re expecting of us. CLASS SONG CLASS COLORS: Maroon Gold Did you ever watch the class of " 57 " slowly marching through the years. And we know deep in our hearts there is nothing that we can do, to make us stay, to turn the tide, we have to say goodby; Yes, we must say good-by. When the dean says its over and done, then we simply must face the fact. So we leave and think it over; but we won ' t come hurrying back. Hoping we ' ll meet some day again, praying we ' ll all come back; but like the dean says, tha ' t all there is to that. (Repeat from - When the dean says its over and done) We have found the golden key that opens the palace of knowledge — • We enter with alacrity CLASS MOTTO 50 Albert Home Carlton Cherry Irvln Gordy Bernice Burton James Williams Harry Lancaster Carlton Cherry Paul Williams Vernon Jones Irvin Gordy Albert Home James Whitaker Carlton Cherry James Williams Irvin Gordy Ephriam Green Ivy Mitchel James Whitaker Henry Porter Irvin Gordy Albert Home James Whitaker Ephriam Green Albert Home Willie Gist Linwood Edwards Willie Gist Clarence Revelle Linwood Edwards Harry Lancaster SUPERLATIVES MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED MOST STUDIOUS BEST LEADERS MOST PROFESSIONAL LOOKING BEST MANNERED BEST PERSONALH Y BEST WRITERS BEST LIKED THE FLIRTIEST BEST ATHLETE BEST SINGER WITTIEST MOST CYNICAL MOST COMICAL MOST POPULAR BEST DANCERS BEST DRESSED THE SHORTEST THE TALLEST THE SKINNIEST THE FATTEST MOST TALKATIVE THE FASTEST THE SLOWEST BEST LOOKING MOST CHILDISH MOST MODEST MOST BUSINESS LIKE THE NEATEST MOST ARTISTIC Margaret Coley Marva Thomas Margaret Coley Wilhelmina Smith Frances Hawkins Wilhelmina Smith Marie Riddick Doretha Hall Mary Howard Rosa Carney Cleo White Essie Mutts Carolyn Mitchel Shirley Uzzell Mattie Taylor Vivian Manly Estelle Blackwell Elizabeth Hunter Essie Mutts Mary Green Annie Bailey Mae Browo Rosa Carney Annie Bailey Carlise Hardy Marie Riddick AUene Jeffers Mattie Taylor Ethel White Dee Dabney QTANBACK CTVDIO 1710 Fayetteville Street Durham, North Carolina Specialist in School Photography % d YEARIOOKS
