C5 -- ? y- V •V ' " O-f 1 P ' VVA .cP 1j - l. m: i : 5 ' J: THE BRONCO VOLUME 2 1950 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS of FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE FAYETTEVILLE, N. C. EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER WILLIAM CARTER KENNETH WHITE FOREWORD For nine months we have photographed, written, re -photographed, and rewritten, in an effort to preserve for you, through the media of pictures and type, the story of a year at Fayette ville State Teachers College. To us the events of this parti- cular year are unique. Some have seemed im- portant, some of only passing value, but the joys and sorrows we experienced can never be relived except in our memories. We want you to see this year in retrospect, not as a mere record of events, but as a warm living record of a most important period in our lives. With this in mind, we think this will truthfully represent college life from the student ' s point of view. Early in September the Senior Class chose the students who were best suited for planning and nursing the yearbook from the raw into the finished product. Then the staff went to work under the very competent direction of their editor and manager and with the invaluable aid of Miss S. S. Davis, of the Social Science department. During the week-ends when sensible students had gone home or were out playing golf, late at night Tnhen most students were asleep, and during holidays when normal students were home on vacation, the staff worked on. And now, the BRONCO is out! ! ! With these words the staff turns it over to the typical student who has been asking " When ' s the BRONCO coming out? " Our primary aim has been to make this a student ' s book--one tliat each of you can feel is truly representative and cosmopolitan. As the time of its appearance draws near, we of the staff are filled with trepidation. While all through the year we have wanted to surpass our predecessors; now, if in your opinion we have been able to maintain the already high standard set by the ' 47 BRONCO, then we are happy. Working and playing with you has been fun. Wehopetliat we have reflected some of that pleasure in this book and that it will be a true mirror of your year at Fayettevflle State College. THE STAFF DEDICATION TO OUR DEAR MOTHER To the one who loves us all, Who wishes us much success in life, Who prays for us each day. To the one who loves us as an individual. Who watches for our progress in each day ' s work, Who cares for us all. To that dear one and only one Mother Seabrook, we wish to dedicate The Year Book. In honor of the Class of 1950 by Nellie J. Williamson, ' 50 OLD WHITE AND BLUE Alma Mater Our colors so true, oh hail, white and blue! To thee our voices ring. Tho ' seasons may roll, and changes unfold Thy praise we ' ll ever sing. All honors and love and loyalty. We pleadge our hearts anew, Our Alma Mater, F. T. C, We hail thee, old white and blue. We cherish each hall, each time- honored wall, Each bending tree and bower, Tho ' far ve may roam, thy spriit leads on To victory and power, With courage and might and majesty, March on old colors true Our Alma Mater, F. T. C. We ' ll stand by old white and blue: PRESIDENT JAMES WARD SEABROOK A.B., Ped.D., Johnson C. Smith University; A.M., Columbia University; further study: Columbia University, University of Chicago, New York University. President James Ward Seabrook has rendered his services at Fayetteville State Teachers College for 28 years. He first acted in the capacity of Dean of Students and later succeeded the late Dr. E. E. Smith to the presidency of the institution. During his reign as president he has tried to inculcate in the minds of faculty and students alike, the virtues of courage, honesty, and love of fellowmen. Due to the democratic ideas of President Seabrook, the first student council was inaugurated at the institution in 1950. It is the profound opinion of the Class of ' 50 that any institution or organization can only prosper under the guidance of James Ward Seabrook. Herbert K. Spruill A MESSAGE TO OUR GRADUATES I salute the editors of the 1950 Yearbook and congratulate them upon the energy and initiative manifested in its compilation. May the future years mirror personal achievement and public service on the part of those whose photographs appear here. May fond memories return as the alumni and alumnae turn these pages in future years. DR. I. H. DOUGLASS Dean of the College DR. JOSEPH H. DOUGLASS Native of Washington, D. C. Received A. B. and M.

Taylor Nellie Williamson CLASS PROPHECY One evening I was sitting under the sliade of a huge weeping willow tree near the placid waters of a quiet broolc contemplating the future of my classmates. Suddenly, I heard the groan- ing of the waters. As I loolied into the dark brooii I saw these words " Do not weep, my lady, like the weeping willow. Gaze into the brook and what you wish to know will be revealed to you. " Before me stood an institution of higher learning which I recognized as Columbia University with Marie Tucker as one of the English Instructors. The president was none other than Cornelius Williams. As the scene unfolded I saw Thomas Barnes escorting Oille Bryant to the twenty -fifth floor of the Empire State Building. There she was t)eing interviewed by Samuel Mills. Incldently, the elevator Iwy was George Hicks. Then a great city came Into view. Along the familiar street called Broadway, strolled EUaree Cunningham, a recent winner of her Ph.D. degree. In lights at the AppoUo Theatre were these words: " Stormy Weather " .... " Annie Little substituting for Lena Home. " Also on the screen was George Andrews talcing Bill Robinson ' s place. The scene quickly went away as I recognized the Opera House with Pauline Muldrow taking over Marian Anderson ' s engagement. In the next scene were many things. Charles Wiggs finally passed the test for President Truman ' s body-guard. Forrest Bolton has become president of a Beauty College in New York City. Across the street I noticed a dress shop where Beulah Hill, Hazel Galney, and Jetta Knight were clerks. George Moore was the manager. As the small town of Knehurst came into view, I saw Zebulon Gordon working on the street as the new shoe shine l»y. Then, FayettevUle, North Carolina appeared and I saw Eloise Starling and Bessie Murphy saying " Alright, children, stay in line please. " at Newbold Training School. Across the Murchlson Road I saw WUliam Hill on the back of a truck. I think he was selling ice. In Petersburg, Virginia Lottie Munn had finally opened a beauty shop. Pauline Pigford and Effie Saunders were working for her. Across the street I recognized Virginia McMillan ' s juke joint with the latest hit, " Why Don ' t You Haul Off and Love Me One More Time? " I then saw a newspaper and read that Kenneth White was candidate for President of the United States. Also in this paper were work ads; Mildred Reid and Gladys Bland were applying for jobs as dish- washers. Velma Adams, a retired old school teacher, had her good friend, Gladys Hanldns, for her maid and Thad McCurry for yard boy. The state of South Carolina came Into view. Way Down in Dixie, I recognized Herbert Spruill and George Coburn in the corn field saying, " Get up mule. " In the same state, James Bellamy was presenting his minstrel show with Pearlie Worthy, Resa Andrews, and Maudie Lawrence as his clowns. Gus McLaughlin was preaching at 40 Eleventh Crossroad, on the subject of " Cheese " . Three of his regular members were Mr. and Mrs. Harold Cushingberry and Harold, Jr. Dorothy Crawley was busy with her six boys in her two-room apartment. Lucille Brown was catching a plane to join her husband, DeWltt Reid, who is a Captain in Japan. Colethia Falson was running an old-fashioned revival meeting at her church. Well, June McCown had finally passed the exam- ination wtiieh entitled her to the presidency of FayettevUle State Teachers College. John Isler was director of the Choir with Walter Williams and Delilah Gilmore assistants. Roberta Harrington and Eleanor Peterson were weeping because their husbands " Just left. " Adolphus Wright had just learned what dew point really is through his science instructor, Willie Taylor. Julia P. Judah was the new dramatic teacher in Bert County, Georgia. Gaither Perkins ' name was in " Who ' s Who in America " . The water ijegan to get muddy as the scenes passed away. I still wanted to know about my other classmates so I turned and placed my hands on my Ouija Board. This was told to me: William Cart er was running a two-truck farm with his landlord Edward Taylor. Milton Yarboro has his Ph.D. degree and was teaching in Goldsboro. Roy and Horold McNeill were playing twin brothers on Virginia State ' s football team. Emmett P arker was working on his Master ' s degree at Yale University. Johnnie Gaines and John Armstrong were operating a jewelry store in Tennessee. They were wondering if they would ever get a customer. Mary Gerald and Edward Fleming were saying, " I do " in a double ring ceremony with the " Father L. Haithman " officiating. Essie Terry had her Master ' s degree in " Cheese " , and was happily married to a soldier. Ethel Sutton was as happy as an old shoe in her new home with her husland and three children, Glorie, Joyce, and June, Jr. Ophelia Council was Home-coming Queen at Howard University. Floyd Caldwell had the honor of crowning her queen. Hul)ert McDonald was building a brick home and was wondering who was to be the lucky bride. Betty McLean was head-nurse at Plttman Hospital in FayettevUle, North Carolina. Elfenla Williams asked Oulja if she would ever find herself a husband. Ouija quietly went to " No " and proceeded to spell I a-m t-i-r-e-d. That ' s all folks. Ouija has had his say. Prophets Elfenla Williams Ethel Sutton THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT We, The Seniors of Fayetteville State Teachers College, being of more or less sound minds and bodies, do in this nineteen hundred and fiftieth year hereby dedicate, bestow, be- queath, will, transmit or just give away, to the faculty, and our fellow students the following possessions.

Juhah June McCown TESTORS EUaree Cunningham JUNIOR CLASS MM JUNIORS The happy medium of a student ' s life is the attainment of Junior standing for it is in this third year of school life that the end of the educational journey is in sight and plans for the world of business begin to mature. The first year was hard and required much study and time; the second year was a little easier but still in the complicated class, but the third year, so far, is best and passing with good grades is a " sure thing " . The class of ' 51 selected leaders who were most capable of upholding the formidable responsibility thrust upon them Large in number, this class showed their ability to cope with th e harder subjectsfound in their third year at college and began preparing themselves for the senior year. They were well represented in the publications, athletics, religious activities, and honor societies; many officers being selected from the Junior class. Miss Eunice George of Whiteville, N.C. had the honor of representing this class as Homecoming Queen for 1949. The majority of the men of this year ' s junior class had just returned from the services and found numerous changes in coUege life at State. Co-eds were present, an " asset " which was not available during their first year or two here, new professors were teaching, and the registration line was longer than ever, but completion of education was important and in spite of the difficulties present, this field was pursued. Studying in the library, stops in the canteen, walking under the pines, meetings at allfamiliarspots, all are more than occurrences now; they are pleasant memories which will be carried for many years and will be thought of in connection with college days at State. The spirit of this institution has now dented itself mto your life, addinga little each year and really showing a mark in the Junior year, not that your love for freedom of the human spirit, for truth and justice, and of the recognition of moral values will be an asset to you in every phase of life, and a resource which cannot be taken away from you. SOPHOMORE CLASS SOPHOMORES One year nearer the goal, the Sophomores found that after that first year the going was not bad, and that they could get along just fine by doing ex- actly what the professors order. Their position in college was no longer new and with the Sophomore classification, they could " run things their way " . The class had the largest enrollment of any Sophomore group at Fayetteville State and was second largest in number during this year ex- ceeded only by the Freshman enrollment. Class officers are as follows: President-Charles A. Stevens; Vice President -Prince Drake; Secretary- Thelma Robinson; Ass ' t Secretary-Alice Bennett; Treasurer-Ruth McNair. The Sophs took an active part in the affairs of the college and were well represented in extra-curricular activities. Composed of mature young men and women, they showed their abUity to meet the obligations cast upon them in their second year at Fayetteville State and they proved to be deserving of the spiritual values and sterling character present at this school. The majority of the class was made up of men who were returning to school after spending several years with Uncle Sam in defense of their country, and getting back to studies and classes was no easy task. Many adjustments had to be made, but no time was lost by these resolved men, who were also faced with many of the inconveniences existing in colleges this year. The Sophomores could always find time to take in a movie, or run to town and spend a few hours for entertainment, but the majority of their time was spent trying to satisfy the professors. They had been told that after their Freshman year they could become Alpha Kappa Mu without studying, but unfortunately they found this to be " college propaganda " so they decided the best thing to do was study at least one night a week, especially if they wanted to become Juniors and get all the choice privileges. Out of this class will come teachers, and many others and the prediction for the future is certainly bright with the prospect of their leadership. State en- courages an adequate purpose in life, calmness and confidence amid con- fusion, and Faith in God and your fellowman, and it is in the Sophomore year that students really begin to feel the effects of their Christian educa- tion. FRESHMEN CLASS FRESHMAN The Class of ' 53 is certainly playing an important role in the activities of Fayetteville State Teachers College and is making history in its size and intellectual ability. Freshman classes of previous years were composed of men in the 16-18 age group, but due to the war we find this class filled with men in the 20 - 22 age group, men with a strong determination to utilize their time to the best advantage, and to get all the benefits available from college life at State. Under the capable leadership of its officers, the Freshman class proceeded in typical State fashion. Officers: President -Lawrence Jackson; Vice-President-Franklin Monroe Williams; Secretary-Mary Tucker; Treasurer-Doris Rice. These officers have shown their ability and the Freshman class is to be congratulated on their choices. The " Frosh " lost no time in getting acquainted with Fayetteville Teachers College and in taking their places in extra-curricular activities. The various clubs and organizations were strengthened with Freshmen membership--the literary societies, the glee club, athletics, publications, religious activities, and other groups welcomed the interest shown by the new students. Due to conditions beyond the control of the college, the Freshmen were not given the material welcome that is traditional of F.S.T.C., however, the warm spirited welcome that is ever-present was right there to aid there future leaders along. Classrooms were crowded, various books were not available, eating facilities were over-taxed, choice housing was impossible, and other incon veniences were prevalent, but these obstacles could not break the determined efforts of the new students. Their presence was felt mostly by the English, Religion, Social Science, Biology, and Chemistry departments. The " neophytes " were guests at a reception given in their honor by the Y.W.C.A. shortly after their arrival. Many members of the faculty were present to extend cordial welcome to the new- comers. A unique program had been planned which included entertainment, dancing and refresh- ments. After this the hardest part of college life had to begin--that of studying, but the Freshmen didn ' t mind that. Words like " quiz " , " pop " , " exams " , " Professor " , " classes " , and " lessons " , were added to their daily vocabulary; trips to the postoffice, drinks at the canteen, hot dogs at Brinkley ' s and snacks at Jimmy ' s, all became part of the life of the newcomer at Fayetteville State. State is proud to have you. Freshmen; keep up the good work.

Fayetteville State Teachers College Young Women ' s Christian Association is affiliated with the National Student Y. W. C. A. and the World ' s Student Christian Federation. Membership is open to all women of the campus community who share the purpose and wish to further the program. One of the major responsibilities of the Y. W. C. A. is the develop- ment of leaders, not the performance of any specific amount or kind of work. The members accept this as their purpose: We unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. In this task we seek to understand Jesus and to follow him. THE WOMEN ' S COLLEGIATE CLUB This organization, open to all women students of the College, is designed to train for unity, cooperation and leader- ship, to maintain a close relationship between the college classes, and to promote events of social and cultural interest to the College. The Women ' s Collegiate Club is one of the most active organizations on the campus. The young ladies have furnished most beautifully and attractively a room in the basement of the Smith Administra- tion Building for social affairs. In the spirit of cooperation, other organiza- tions are often granted use of t his room. The Qub is sponsored by Miss Lauraetta J. Taylor, Instructor in Health and Physical Education. Officers for 1949-50 are: Misses Minnie R. Duck, F resident; Eleanor Peterson, Secretary; Roberta Harrington, Treasurer. YOUNG MEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OUR ULTIMATE GOAL oy F. Nelson Far beyond the turbulent seas of Ufe, beyond the mountainous temptations of evil, flow the abundant rewards of the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, our God. There, for those of us who are strong of mind and pure of heart lay many treasures, not in gold or silver but in everlasting life and everlasting peace. We of the Y. M. Y. W. C. A. are striving to reach these rewards and in doing so seek the presence of our fellowmen. For it is a long and dangerous journey through these turbulent seas of life and there is only one Captain to guide us. We shall never lose faith in Him. We are never so crowded we may not reach down and pull a brother from the temptations of evil as we continue towards our final destination. The " Y " is not just those who are within our immediate number but for all young people who need guidance through these years of uncertainty. It is our belief that we may pave a more vivid path for the world of tomorrow for the peaceful progress of our children and for our chris- tianrelegion. We believe all peoples united in the aims of our fellowship shall prepare themselves for the battles to be won, and enter upon the threshold of eternal life. Our age is one of wordly confusion, sunken morality, and ship-wrecked ideals. We find it difficult to swim against the wtiirlpools of temptation; we find ourselves sinking into the black pits of despair; we cannot see the lighthouse of security shining over us. If only we could lift our heads and unite with our Captain we could be spared of these turbulent seas and evil temptation. We could feel the sway of a new sail, a stronger fellowship among all mankind. The Y. M. C. A. stands firmly upon a solid rock beckoning with every righteous light to help our fellowmen, to lift them out of the whirlpools of evil, to gather everyone into its harbor of Love, to sail the seas of life protected by our Captain and our Lord. For there together shall we all become brothers. THE VOICE STAFF The " Voice " staff at Fayetteville State Teachers is composed of students and one faculty member as sponsor.

" • ' Willie Carter William Carter, Mamaroneck, New York ' s gift to golf, won at a recent Charlotte meet the ' ' medalist " for the second consecutive year. While he is a star at basketball, Carter ' s first love appears to be golf. William Carter, who hails from Mamaroneck, New York, has added another laurel to his list and has broken another record. So also has he won the medalist. The tournament was held at the Meadowbrook Golf course in Charlotte. Here are the scores (all under par): First round — 67. Third round — 66. Second round — 69. Fourth round — 68. For a total of 270 last year on the same course, Carter won medalist with 283. His tournament record during the summer was quite impressive showing six wins out of seven tries. His lone defeat was suffered in the Ray Robinson open golf tournament. Here he was eliminated in the semifinal round. Carter, who finds time to share his knowledge of golf with his fellow-students, has organized on a campus a golf club known as the " Winged Footers. " The purpose of this organization is to diseminate knowledge of and to create interest in golf. The club provides information on four basic aspects of golf - the golf course, the game, the materials, and correct form. AND NOW FAREWELL We will not fear the future days, as we from our Alma Mater go With spirited hearts and determined minds, the light of hope will ever glow. We ' ll always remember when our paths are obstructed by troubles and strife To take courage and strive on to make for ourselves a successful life. We ' ll keep this new life that others will see, pure. For a heart that is true and a soul that is clean, will through the hard-ships of life endure. We won ' t forget to remember, God, His words and deeds will ever be in our hearts. For it ' s only through His guiding hand can we to others a wholesome life impart. We never forget our friends so dear whose faith and wise counsel gave us inspiration. In devotion shall our hearts be bound, and through the years we ' ll reminisce with Kindest thoughts and admiration. We ' ll always cherish the memories of our campus life The gay times, the sad times and those we cannot tell. Though graduation is a glorious day our hearts for a moment are filled with remorse As now at least we say farewell. Class Poet, M.
