J. V. Hai ' i-is as spdiisor. But, lioing iiu ' i-c ' fi-rsliincii, we liad nothing to do the first wouk except waiuler aiouiid, f et af(|Uiiinted with oiii ' freshman kin, the liuildinffs, take the retiiiired mental and physical tests, and enjoy entertainments i i cn for us. (ieorge Norman was elected I ' l-esident of the class ; Beatrice Madison, Secretary ; E. G. S))aulding, Treasurer; Thclnia Battle, Chairman of the Social C ' cMuiTiittee; and Xaomi Mc- Lean and Milton Johnson, reiu ' esentatives of tlic Student Council. Full of spirit and pej) we were now ready to hetjin our work. The first social affair niven In Hie freshman class for the student hody was a dance -to the sweet tunes ,.f Bdly StaHord ' s ,ua ' liestra. Souvenirs and ])unch and cookies i-emiiid us (d ' the revelry. Customarily Mrs. Harris had been the spimsor of all freshmen classes. The Class of ' ■iO, so inspired by her teachings, literally drafted her to • ' midhci " lis in our sophomore year. She did! We again elected George Norman, President; Milton Johnson, ' ice I ' risident ; Robert L. Durcn, Secretary; Thclnia L. Battle, Chairman of the Social Ccmimittee; and Josejih A. Christmas, Trea.surcr. Again, wanting to give something for tlie students, we gaye a Valen- tine dance. Due to the growth of tlie student body we used the gym for this entertainment. Souvenirs were given to our guests along with sjiecial features. ' I ' he so])homores felt (|uite proud to be called u|ion to act as guides whin our nine new buildings were dedicated. At the end of our second year Charles Cobb was elected President for the juidor year; Thelma ! . Battle, Vice President; Josephine Pittman, Secretary ; and Ste|)hen Thomas, Treas- urer. Naomi IMcIjean and Geneva Harper were the representatives for tlie Student Council. Plans f(u- the junior year ' s work were discusseil. Our young men formed themselve-, into a comittee to meet all trains .aiid buses bearing stu- dents in September, to give the freshmen any licl])ful information or assistance. The young women ])ledge(l to do their best to make the newcomers feel at home. We also planned for a party to be given for all freshmen and new students. It was the first of its kind by upper- classmen. Our biggest affair for this year was the Junior-Senior I ' roiii which to iis was re.illy some- thing great. Setting a precedent, we were permitted to invite young men of the alumni to attend our Prom. The Music Assembly, beautifully decorated with suiilax and flowers, gave the im|)ression of a gai ' den where lovers meet. The music was in keeping with the beauty — that of Jimmy Gunn of Charlotte, Noi-th Carolina. ' I ' he i|ueen was none other than Robert I.. Durcn of Camden, South Carolina, with her attendants Othelia Watson and ' I ' lielma L. Battle. Our beloved spon.sor, Mrs. J. V. Harris, was ))resented with a basket nf flowers. The Class of ' iO delights in doing things to make others luqipy, ' I ' hc minstrel show that was given by the juniors brought out many hearty laughs. The chiss officers elected for the senior year were Charles Cobb, President; James Brown, ' ice President; Josephine Pittman, Secretary; Stephen Thomas, Treasurer; and Tlichna Battle, Chairman of the Social Committee. The first dramatic aff ' air of the year. " The Whole Town ' s Talking, " was given by the senior class. By the large crowd that fumed out, we are sure th.it we could get many " Aniens " of the fact that the jihiy was a siieeess. The Commencement exercises will signify not only the conclusion of one chapter cd ' our class history, but also the beginning of the serious work of our byes, when the (iradiiating Class of ' 40 of the North Carolina College for Negroes will write its real history, that id ' achievemcnt.s and successes of its members.
